Sister's Back, and that is very, very good!
Declare the critics about Sister Strikes Again!: Late Nite Catechism 2

Where: Christ the King Catholic Community
When: Friday,August 27,2010 - 7:30pm
Tickets: $25 at office, gift shop, or 871-1904

The Los Angeles Times declares Sister Strikes Again!: Late Nite Catechism 2 is funnier than the original! This time around Sister tackles sin and is the undisputed conqueror! Armed with banners, filmstrips, mimeographed handouts, historical facts and hysterical insights, she conducts her class into convulsions of laughter. Picking up where she left off in the original, Sister begins with an affectionate look at women's religious orders which leads to her own confession about the goal of every nun to get herself into heaven first and then bring along as many of the faithful as possible, thereby securing her own wings and possibly the salvation of countless others.

Now, in Sister Strikes Again!: Late Nite Catechism 2, it's up to Sister to save the souls of those assembled, AKA the audience! Beginning with an overview of heaven and hell as a Catholic version of Chutes and Ladders, she is soon offering her own suggestions for celebrities who might end up sharing digs with the devil, as well as a list of new sins for the new millennium. (Needless to say bobble head dolls of the holy family is right near the top). Maripat Donovan's Sister Strikes Again!: Late Nite Catechism 2 is blessed with all the wit, wisdom and wackiness that made the original an international hit. Who knew damnation could be so much fun!?! (LA Times). Join the flock; see Sister Strikes Again!: Late Nite Catechism 2.

Google heats up Social Networking


Google Me rival for Facebook?


"Google Inc. is in talks with several makers of popular online games as it seeks to develop a broader social-networking service that could compete with Facebook Inc. Google has been in discussions with top developers to offer their games on a new service it is building, these people said. Those developers include Playdom Inc., Electronic Arts Inc.'s Playfish and Zynga Game Network Inc.—a company in which Google recently took a financial stake."
The report from the Wall Street Journal indicates an interests by Google to include all of the features that make Facebook popular, plus both business and gaming applications with high quality graphics and live multi-player interface. The site, tentatively titled "Google Me" would interface with the search engine, google phone, google maps and all current google services. It would offer full cloud computing services, including functions traditionally limited to desktop or laptop computers. Many features similar to Apple's "Mobile Me" will be included, including cross device and computer access and synchronization. 
Social games and social networking sites are rapidly growing on-line advertising and user functions. Interface with Google's free product using an advertiser based model, data mining and interfacing of all computing functions, the new product will be a logical step for the company.
Google has not confirmed the new social platform but has made indications that it does exist in the development and testing phase.

Henderson Space and Science Center Events. 2 Comments Share Tweet Print E-mail Share Board advances plans for Henderson Space and Science Center


In an effort to continue to promote the Henderson Space and Science Center years before its completion, the center's board is advancing its design plans and organizing a speaker series at local libraries.
Board member Jim Frey also announced Tuesday that the first speaker, Henry Sun, assistant research professor at the Desert Research Institute, will present at Galleria at Sunset Mall, outside the library on the first floor, he said. The event is free to the public and will begin at 7 p.m.
Sun will speak on the topic, “The Search for Life on Mars,” Frey said. The speech is expected to last about 40 minutes, plus a question and answer session. Frey said the center’s board hopes to host quarterly speakers until the museum opens, although no other speakers have yet been scheduled.
Frey said that Sun’s speaking engagement won't cost the board anything. But he didn’t rule out the fact that some money might be spend on speakers in the future.
The space and science center board already has an exhibit at Galleria at Sunset Mall: “Ends of the Earth: From Polar Bears to Penguins.”

Education as campaign issue for Senate



If Sharron Angle had her way in eliminating the Department of Education, Nevada would get no federal funding for education and accountability standards would be thrown out the window. Angle opposes the $445 million in education money Reid has brought to Nevada and the hundreds of teachers' jobs he's saved through the Recovery Act.  When it comes to strengthening Nevada's classrooms and building a competitive workforce in our state, Sharron Angle just doesn't get it.


"By eliminating the Department of Education, Sharron Angle would eliminate the Pell Grants I need to go to school," said Sebring Frehner, a student at the Nevada State College.

"Her ideas about killing the Department of Education are not only extreme, but deeply personal to people like me.  This is not a game. This is my life and my future.  Sharron Angle doesn't have the right to put that in jeopardy."

"In Sharron Angle's Nevada, I'm out of a job," said Bridget Zick, a Nevada Kindergarten teacher who spoke at the rally and is featured in the new ad.  "She opposes the Economic Recovery Act and wants to kill the Department of Education, two of the reasons I'm not unemployed right now.  She is simply out of touch with Nevada's teachers and our students.  Instead of working to improve our education system, she's just making it worse."

"While Senator Reid is fighting to build up Nevada's education system, Sharron Angle seems determined to tear it down, leaving thousands of Nevada students without the resources they were counting on to get a quality education," said Dr. Brian Cram, former Clark County Superintendent.

"Eliminating the Department of Education means terminating programs like Pell Grants and Perkins Loans, ending Fulbright Scholarships, pulling the funding for early reading programs, and eliminating Title IX.  In Sharron Angle's Nevada, all of these opportunities are gone for Nevada's students."

"Senator Reid has made exceptional contributions: over $400 milion in stimulus money prevent teachers from being laid off and over $250 million for research and development for colleges and universities," said Eugen Paslov, former state superintendant.
