President’s Day

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 17, 2009

Well, historically, it was the late President Washington’s birthday that eventually became a federal holiday. It is celebrated each year on the third Monday of February, though it was originally celebrated on Washington’s actual birthday of February 22nd.

To note, President’s day is the first federal holiday to recognize an American citizen and was enacted in 1880 as a holiday for the District of Columbia only.  In 1885 it was named a federal holiday for all federal offices in the U.S. 1976, Washington’s Birthday was moved to the third Monday of February in an attempt to establish it more along the lines of President’s Day to also honor Abraham Lincoln who was born on February 12th.  Though the change in day passed the change in name did not.

At present, 12 states have renamed Washington’s Birthday, President’s Day or a similar variation to honor all of the U.S. presidents.  In Massachusetts the holiday is centered on honoring presidents from that state and a few other states have passed similar holidays as well.

Plane Crash Kills 50

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 13, 2009

jer1Tragedy strikes again to a fiery plane which has crashed down in Upstate New York. They were almost there but unfortunately went into a tragic landing nose-dived into a house in suburban Buffalo.

Historically, this was the nation’s first fatal crash of a commercial airliner in 2 ½ years. 49 people aboard and a person in the home were lost after the deadly landing.

According to the witnesses they heard the twin turboprop aircraft sputtering before it went down in light snow and fog around 10:20 p.m. Thursday about five miles from Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Continental Connection Flight 3407 from Newark, N.J., came in squarely through the roof of the house, its tail section visible through flames shooting at least 50 feet high.

“The whole sky was lit up orange,” said Bob Dworak, who lives less than a mile away. “All the sudden, there was a big bang, and the house shook.”

“Continental extends its deepest sympathy to the family members and loved ones of those involved in this accident,” Continental chairman and CEO Larry Kellner said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family members and loved ones of those involved in the flight 3407 tragedy.”

The 9/11 widow on board was identified as Beverly Eckert. She was heading to Buffalo for a celebration of what would have been her husband’s 58th birthday, said Mary Fetchet, a 9/11 family activist.

Octuplets’ Finances May Depend on Government Fund

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 13, 2009

dona5A single and an employed mom of her 14 children could be depending financial assistances from the taxpayers of California. The situation maybe done by compounding the public furor in a state already billions of dollars in the red.

For the past years Nadya Suleman had been raising her six other children with the help of $490 a month in food stamps, plus Social Security disability payments for three of the youngsters. The public aid will almost certainly be increased with the new additions to her family.

“It appears that, in the case of the Suleman family, raising 14 children takes not simply a village but the combined resources of the county, state and federal governments,” Los Angeles Times columnist Tim Rutten wrote in Wednesday’s paper. He called Suleman’s story “grotesque.”

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is struggling to close a $42 billion budget gap by cutting services, declined through a spokesman to comment on the taxpayer costs associated with the octuplets’ delivery and care.

Some of the disability money was spent on in vitro fertilizations, which was used for all 14 of her children, Suleman said. She said she also worked double shifts at the mental hospital and saved up for the treatments. She estimated that all her treatments cost $100,000.

This situation is rare, for the women around the globe please be reminded that it is not that easy to wish for lots of babies by drinking something to push through it. Think wisely to avoid into getting some financial trouble.

Valentine’s Day

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 13, 2009

100-9041Valentine’s Day is a popular festival held on February 14 by countless of lovers around the globe. The festival gives love-struck a special time to express heartfelt feelings for their beloved coupled with nice cards, fresh flowers or some gifts. While most people attach romantic meaning to the festival, Valentine’s Day is not only celebrated by lovers. Individuals greet Valentine’s Day to their mothers, teachers, friends, pets or anyone else close to their hearts.

As mentioned above, Valentine’s Day should not only be confined purposely for lovers alone, it should be some kind of a general issue where the sharing of pure love must be well-manifested.

I have known such a generous girlfriend in my life when one time while walking down the street we came across an old man begging for money for his meal. I am naturally not that thoughtful enough of their welfare because of the principle I believed that everybody has the capacity to survive by looking for a much better way to stay out of money. But when an old man asked for money, she unselfishly took her wallet, drew some coins and gave them to the old man.

It was indeed a different experience for me. It helped me realized that there are people around who are helpless that need some kind of attention to assist them for their survival. This kind of act is a great example of giving more value to the spirit of Valentine’s Day.

Chris Brown and Rihanna Music Team-Up

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 10, 2009

dona4It all started in music; Chris and Rihanna are now being admired as a pair. They have been doing shows together, isn’t it sweet?

Just recently, the duo officially joined together on the lately leaked track “Bad Girl.” (Brown previously appeared on a remix of Rihanna’s song “Umbrella.”) The song was made for the soundtrack to the upcoming film Confessions of a Shopaholic. A

nd who do we have to thank for putting together the high-profile duet? Producer Polow da Don, who has worked with Fergie (“London Bridge”), Ciara (“Promise”), and Usher (“Love in This Club”).

The recent album of Rihanna relates to her being a shopping addict. She is really into penchant for bags and shoes and her not-so-thrifty purchasing habits. Thus, a song has been composed for her.

“It’s crazy, because Chris Brown’s energy alone is incredible – he’s a high-energy kid,” Polow said. “Rihanna has a unique voice, and she’s one of the easiest people to work with. When her, Chris and myself were in the room, it’s fun. That’s when the music isn’t work at all. It’s all freestyle. Chris comes up with an idea; I come up with one. Rihanna will weigh in. And we build. We actually did a lot more records that hopefully will be coming soon.”

Justice Ginsburg has Pancreatic Cancer

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 6, 2009

datalockerThe Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery for an “early stage” pancreatic cancer. The 75-year-old, who had surgery for colon cancer in 1999, will remain in the hospital for seven to 10 days following her surgery.

The doctors who examined and conducted surgery on her said that the tumor measures about 1 centimeter and was discovered during an annual exam last month at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Md.

Study shows the pancreatic cancer is especially dealy and is known as a silent killer. Most cases are asymptomatic. And the later the cancer is caught, the lower the chances of survival, Dr. Avram Cooperman, surgical director for the Pancreas and Biliary Center at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Manhattan, told last summer after Patrick Swayze’s diagnosis with pancreatic cancer.

Statistically, the illness affects about 30,000 people a year, and has only 5 percent survival rate for five years. Caught early enough and treated with surgery and chemotherapy, the five-year survival rate goes up to 17 to 25 percent, Cooperman said.

According to further study, people whose ages ranging from 50 to 70 are most at risk for developing the disease. Cooperman said smokers, heavy drinkers of alcohol and, in some cases, people with a genetic predisposition are most at risk for pancreatic cancer. Some sufferers of chronic pancreatitis may also be at risk.
