Best Syndication News

(Best Syndication News) Doomsday prophecies have always been there and shall always be there. More so, everyone is curious about a doomsday prophecy. People wish to know about the extraordinary events that might affect our planet or the entire human race. While most of these doomsday predictions are part of ancient religious texts, there are some “researchers” who have spent a lot of time investigating cause and effect of a doomsday prophecy.

The latest in line is that of the Mayan calendar, which marks December 21, 2012 the end of the world. Some researchers are even out with the exact time; 11:11 PM it is said is the time, when there shall be no breathing soul on the planet.

(Best Syndication News) Over the past month, I have heard of, in no particular order, the “Racism Crisis”, the “Dollar Crisis”, the “Terrorism Crisis”, the “Healthcare Crisis”, the “International Economic-Imbalance Crisis”, the “Global Warming Crisis”, the “Iranian Nuclear Weapons Crisis”, the “Swine Flu Crisis”, the “Taliban Crisis”, the “Pakistani-al Qaeda Crisis”, the “Unemployment Crisis”, and, the “Swine Flu Crisis”.

I might be missing a few crises.

Although all of these crises are, reportedly, rushing upon us to destroy our way of life, I have not heard any of my friends or neighbors ask for my support to call the government or one of the two branches of the political system to take action, or withhold such, to rescue us.

(Best Syndication News) Senate Republicans are calling for legislative action to make sure California is eligible to compete for $4.35 billion in “Race to the Top” dollars available through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The Recovery Act is the single largest pool of discretionary funding for education reform in U.S. history. On July 24, 2009, President Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan outlined federal eligibility and competitiveness requirements for states competing for this funding.

Without a change in state law, however, California will be disqualified before the “Race to the Top” even starts. Under current law, California does not have the legal ability to link student achievement data to teachers and principals as the Race to the Top requires.

(Best Syndication News) "There is a point there economics alone must not be the sole justification for an animal production practice. When the egg producers asked me if I wanted cheap eggs I replied, 'Would you want to buy a shirt if it was $5 cheaper and made by child slaves?'" animal behavior expert Temple Grandin told ag professionals in 2001.

Unfortunately, since then, things are worse in the ag world.

This month the public saw videos of baby chicks ground up alive at Hy-Line hatchery and laying hens pancaked and mummified at a Dunkin Donut's supplier. http://www.dunkincruelty.com/ And how was your omelet?

Who Is To Blame for Vogue's October Issue?

(Best Syndication News) The September Issue, R.J. Cutler's documentary about Vogue editor Anna Wintour has a lot in common with Martin Scorsese's Shine a Light about the Rolling Stones--and not just the Byronic visage of Wintour's "Keith Richards," creative director Grace Coddington.

It raises more questions than it answers.

Why does Wintour's shellacked, pageboy helmet bob--last seen on Monica Lewinsky in 1999 when she was doing penance--not disqualify her fashion oeuvre? And her little shrunken, osteoporosis blazers paired with A-line skirts? How about the sleeveless, abstract-floral print jersey dresses that look like, gulp, Butterick patterns when they made you take Home Ec? Am I missing something?
