Blair to teach religion???

I read this on the BBC News site.

Tony Blair

Tony Blair is to teach students at Yale University in the US when he leads a seminar on faith and globalisation.
The former prime minister has been appointed as a fellow at Yale and will begin teaching next year.
The prestigious Connecticut university said the work was related to Mr Blair’s Faith Foundation which will be launched later this year.

What does this mean??!

testing post dating

This is a test to see if I can put a date on a blog to be posted at a time after I actually post.

It is now 9:19pm. I’m dating the post as today at 9:30pm.

Okay, I’ve just added this text. I want it to update the post at 9:45pm.

Very cool.  It actually removed the post until the above time rolled around.

be careful what you wish for

I went through some old posts on another of my blogs and found this quote:

Let’s see…the situation in Iraq is deteriorating, tens of millions of Americans are uninsured, the public education system is a disgrace and Congress is debating…flag burning? It’s good to see their priorities are in order. I know that if I’m a guy with a son in Iraq, helping out a parent who worked for a company where the pension fund went south, and whose daughter can’t get a decent education, flag burning it what I think about when I wake up each day, and I’m glad Congress shares my priorities. But what I really want to know, if I’m that guy, is when our elected represenatives are going to have more hearings on steroid abuse in professional baseball.

It’s from Seth Greenland’s post on Huffington Post on June 22, 2005.

senator HRC

Hillary Clinton

There appears to be some backlash on Senator Clinton for her response on 60 Minutes last night about whether she believes that Senator Obama is a Muslim.

As a seasoned politician she plants seeds of doubt with key phrases such as, “I take him on the basis of what he says,” and “As far as I know.” The thing is, that it’s not even subtle.

Another gaff for the Clinton campaign. She’s making people more and more angry at her, because she looks even more and more like the kind of politician that the country is tired of.

Computers for every taste

A friend sent me an article from the New York Times that says Barack Obama’s site is like a Mac and Hillary Clinton’s is like a PC.

On one thing, the experts seem to agree. The differences between and can be summed up this way: Barack Obama is a Mac, and Hillary Clinton is a PC.

That’s pretty funny and a light article to read. I just want to know if that makes John McCain’s website like a TRS-80.TRS-80

Does YouTube Work?

This is just a test to see if youtube works the way it should. It does not seem to work properly on Whispers. You have to put the YouTube code in place, after you finish writing, and the code has to be entered on the code UI.Okay, here’s my first attempt at placing a YouTube video.Well, that didn’t work. Now I’ll try placing the code in the Visual editor. That seemed to work, but two things happened. The code was changed from multiple lines, to one line which is a reference to the YT site, and the customized viewer is not there.This is what it looks like when I customize it on the YT page and then put the code here. Now I’ll try putting the code on the Code Editor.That didn’t work either.I must be dense. Looking at the upload box I see there are instructions for putting YT video in a blog, but that doesn’t give me the custom viewer either. BTW, WordPress automatically shortens the code. It can be placed either in the editor directly, or in the upload section.

… waiting for the sun.
