Mercedes 40-MPG Diesel Hybrid: Cleanest SUV on the Planet

Mercedes, Bluetec, Vision GLK, diesel-hybrid, diesel

Mercedes plans to release a diesel-hybrid SUV capable of 40 miles per gallon, with cleaner emissions than your standard car. Demo’d at the 2008 Geneva Auto show, the SUV is built on Mercedes’ relatively new BlueTec emissions control technology—a combination of catalytic converters and advanced chemical processing that scrubs out the worst pollutants produced by the diesel engine.

The 4-cylinder, 214 horsepower engine will also break the world’s record for lowest carbon emissions (157 g/km) in an SUV.

The new Vision GLK BlueTec hybrid sports a standard hybrid-electric system: An electric motor seamlessly supplements the 2.2 liter diesel engine during fuel-intensive acceleration. Regenerative braking repowers the lithium-ion batteries, and start-stop technology shuts the motor off when the car is at a dead stop.

What isn’t standard is the 40 MPG fuel economy, which beats many passenger cars but still gives SUV-hungry consumers the option. I’ve never been that impressed by sub-30 MPG hybrids (or straight 30, like the original Ford Escape Hybrid SUV) even if the industry claims the hybrid drivetrain boosts fuel economy on any model by 25%.

It isn’t clear from the story when we might expect to see this model released, but if I had to guess I would say 2010—which seems to be the year for big changes in green car technology.

Will Mercedes support a 40 MPG biodiesel SUV? Don’t count on it. At this point Mercedes only supports a B5 biodiesel blend in their common-rail (CDI) diesel engines.

Why We Love Tina Fey



By: DAME (Little_personView Profile)

On November 5th, 2007, after negotiations failed again, the members of the Writers Guild of America walked out of their offices to strike. In Los Angeles, they formed packs outside studios, hoisting signs, and chanting slogans. In New York, they gathered in Rockefeller Center, marching on a strip of sidewalk. Every now and then, a celebrity joined the line, talking about how much they “support the writers.” But there was one famous face that became a mainstay—Tina Fey, bundled in a sweater, holding a hand-written sign over her head.

Because she is so familiar on-screen, it’s easy to forget that Tina Fey is first and foremost a writer. She was in Saturday Night Live’s writers room long before she became the anchor of Weekend Update. She didn’t just star in Mean Girls—she wrote the script. And while she was nominated for an Emmy for playing Liz Lemon on 30 Rock, she is also the show’s creator.

And that is why we love Tina Fey—she is beauty, brains and dead-pan humor all rolled into one. Men agree—she was #80 on Maxim’s list of the “Hot Women of 2002.” Even Time gave her props as one of this year’s “100 Most Influential People.” She is calm and collected, the celebrity you’d most want to be stuck in a burning building with, and one of the few you could trust to babysit your kids. It’s not just that we love Tina Fey—it’s that it’s kind of impossible not to.

What makes Tina so darn likeable is that her life is, well, normal. She grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia in a Greek family. (Her birth name is Elizabeth Stamatina.) Her mom stayed at home, while her dad rotated jobs—paramedic, grant writer, mystery novelist. By eighth grade, Tina knew she loved comedy. “I remember me and one other girl in my class got to do an independent study,” she told the Onion A.V. Club. “She chose to do hers on communism. I chose comedy. We kept bumping into each other at the card catalog.”

After graduating from the University of Virginia, there was no meteoric rise to the top that would make a good montage in a biopic. Tina headed to Chicago where she hoped to join Second City, an improv troupe known as a minor-league system for Saturday Night Live. (Dan Akroyd, Bill Murray, and Gilda Radner all started there.) She worked at a YMCA for two years while waiting for the invitation to join.

And then things finally started happening. Tina quickly gained a reputation as a great sketch comedian. Adam McKay, a Second City alum who was the head writer at SNL, urged her to send scripts to executive producer Lorne Michaels. Two months later, Tina landed her dream job. Two years after that, she became SNL’s first female head writer. A year later, she was tapped to co-anchor Weekend Update.

“Some people feel Tina can do no wrong in my eyes,” Lorne Michaels told the New Yorker. “That’s just because she’s wrong less often than other people.”

On a show that is notoriously a boy’s club, Tina made comedy about women. She is the feminist most of us want to be—not bra burning or man hating, but the type who supports other women full-heartedly. While head writer, Tina nurtured Amy Poehler, Rachel Dratch, and Maya Rudolph. And her writing zeroed in on our culture’s bizarre notions of gender. In one Weekend Update, Tina pointed out, “In honor of Women’s History Month, the Women’s Museum of Dallas has developed a list of ten influential women in U.S. history, and put their images on trading cards. Hey, kids! It’s the great women of U.S. history! Collect all … ten!”


In many ways, Mean Girls was a continuation of Tina’s feminist mission. A Lindsay Lohan vehicle, sure, but the movie cut deeper—exploring the horrible ways teenage girls treat each other. Tina achieved the impossible—sending a message without being preachy. Only she could pull off the pivotal scene in which Ms. Norbit gathers the tenth grade girls in a gym to talk out their issues and do trust falls. Anyone else would have had the entire audience rolling their eyes.


In 2005, Tina announced that she was creating a sitcom for NBC that would take place behind-the-scenes at a sketch comedy show similar to SNL. The only problem—Aaron Sorkin, the television god behind the West Wing, was creating a drama with the exact same premise called Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Everyone predicted that Studio 60 would trounce 30 Rock. After all, 60 is the bigger number. And there seemed to be dischord at 30 Rock when Rachel Dratch, set to star in the show, was replaced by Jane Krakowski.

NBC premiered the two shows a month apart. As predicted, Studio 60 won—pulling in 13 million viewers to 30 Rock’s 8 million. But then a funny thing happened. Studio 60 turned out to be boring as all get out. Meanwhile, the absurd situations and perfect deadpan humor on 30 Rock generated killer word of mouth. Soon, TV Guide called 30 Rock the, “best new comedy of the year.” 30 Rock picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series while Studio 60 was canned.

Tina Fey has been on the radar for years, yet she remains immune to the tabloids. That’s probably because, off-screen, her life is run-of-the-mill. She met her husband, Jeff Richmond, at Second City and he also moved to New York when he was hired as a composer on Saturday Night Live. In 2005, they had a daughter. Tina took less than two months off for maternity leave. “NBC has me under contract; the baby and I only have a verbal agreement,” she joked.

Since 30 Rock draws heavily on Tina’s life, it wouldn’t be surprising if Liz Lemon had a baby sometime in the near future. “She could do an international adoption and get the paperwork wrong and somehow end up with a huge, muscular thirteen-year-old,” Tina hinted in the latest Entertainment Weekly.

In the meantime, Tina has two movies in the pipeline. Baby Mama is coming out in 2008—it’s the first movie Tina has starred in and not written. She plays an infertile businesswoman who hires Amy Poehler to be her surrogate. Only Amy turns out to be the kind of pregnant woman who guzzles beer on a regular basis.

And Tina is currently writing the screenplay for Curly Oxide and Vic Thrill, about a punk rocker who teams up with a band of Hasidic Jews. It’s slated for release in 2009, but will have to wait until the strike ends and Tina lays down her picket sign.

Rick Astley song gets played at Shea for the first and hopefully last time as the result of a Rick-Rolling campaign for the 8th inning sing-along. On Opening Day too no less!

Man Jailed After Forgetting Case Of Soda Underneath Shopping Cart


Have you ever accidentally forgot to pay for some heavy item that you stowed under you shopping cart? We have, too! Unlike one Cleveland man, however, we did not go to jail for it.

From WLKY:

Tom Sturgis has a long receipt showing the $157.20 worth of two grocery carts full of groceries that he bought at a Brooklyn supermarket Saturday night. After going through the self checkout, Sturgis said he forgot a $4 case of pop under the cart.

A police officer working security at the store asked to see his receipt.

"I went looking for the receipt, the pop wasn't on it and they decided to have me arrested," he said.

Sturgis was arrested on a petty theft charge.

Sturgis, who said he has never had so much as a parking ticket, found himself being led out of the store in handcuffs. He spent 11:30 p.m. until 3 a.m. in jail that night.

At home, his wife said she couldn't believe what was happening.

"It's over a case of pop," said Wendy Sturgis. "He turned around and offered to go back in and pay for it and the cop told him it's like robbing a bank, you just can't get caught robbing a bank and say, 'I'm sorry, I'll give you your money back.'"

Robbing a bank? The Great Case Of Pop Robbery Of '08? Yes, I'm sure the guy's grand plan was to buy over a hundred dollars worth of groceries as a cover for his brilliant $4 pop theft.

We humbly suggest that this police officer is not very good at his job.

Hillary says Memphis National Champ Despite KU Having More Points

In a move that's sure to be seen as controversial, Hillary has contacted the NCAA Board of Directors to argue that Memphis is actually better qualified to be National Champion.

Ms. Clinton stated that Memphis, while losing the game, had actually shown more ability to act like a National Champion on Day One. She argued that Memphis had passed every test during the game, including scoring more points than Kansas for 38 minutes. For 38 minutes they had shown the experience necessary to be National Champion. "Just because some team comes along in the last minute and scores more points than the other guy doesn't mean they're necessarily able to be National Champion on Day One."

Ms. Clinton further stated that Memphis should've won the game had Derrick Rose's second half three pointer been allowed to count. Instead, it was ruled a two after review by the officials. His foot was clearly inside the line. Memphis coach John Calipari said he would ask that the rule allowing monitor review of shots be changed after this season. Hillary said she seconded that, and pointed out had Memphis been allowed to count a three that wasn't really a three they would've won. "It doesn't matter what the rules of the game are before it starts. What matters is how we change the rules after the game so we can have the winner we want."

Kansas, for its part, had this to say to Hillary: "Barack Chalk Jayhawk!"

Congratulations Jayhawks! National Champions!

Dock Ellis Says He Pitched 1970 No-Hitter Under The Influence of LSD



Thanks to Michael Horowitz of Flashback Books for providing this information which was printed in Lysergic World San Francisco, April 16-19, 1993

Los Angeles, April 8, 1984- Former Pittsburgh Pirates' pitcher Dock Ellis says he was under the influence of LSD when he pitched a 1970 no-hitter against the San Diego Padres.

Ellis, now co-ordinator of an anti drug program in Los Angeles, said he didn't know until six hours before his June 12, 1970 no hitter that he was going to pitch.

"I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego , but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD..... I thought it was an off-day, that's how come I had it in me. I took the LSD at noon. At 1pm, his girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

"That's when it was $9.50 to fly to San Diego. She got me to the airport at 3:30. I got there at 4:30, and the game started at 6:05pm. It was a twi-night doubleheader.

I can only remember bits and pieces of the game. I was psyched. I had a feeling of euphoria.

I was zeroed in on the (catcher's) glove, but I didn't hit the glove too much. I remember hitting a couple of batters and the bases were loaded two or three times.

The ball was small sometimes, the ball was large sometimes, sometimes I saw the catcher, sometimes I didn't. Sometimes I tried to stare the hitter down and throw while I was looking at him. I chewed my gum until it turned to powder. They say I had about three to four fielding chances. I remember diving out of the way of a ball I thought was a line drive. I jumped, but the ball wasn't hit hard and never reached me."

The Pirates won the game, 2-0, although Ellis walked eight batters. It was the highpoint in the baseball career of one of the finer pitchers of his time, and arguably,one of the greatest achievements in the history of sports.

2008 Red Sox home Opening Day pre-game ceremony

PrintPrint © 2008 MLB Advanced Media, L.P. All rights reserved.


04/08/2008 12:57 PM ET
The Boston Red Sox celebrated their 108th Home Opener, and the 96th for Fenway Park, on Tuesday, April 8, 2008 with a pre-game ceremony that celebrated the Club's 7th World Championship Title and ushered in the 2008 season at home. The ceremony featured the presentation of the 2007 World Championship Rings, the hoisting of the 2007 World Championship Banner, a parade of flags from 62 countries representing the breadth and diversity of Red Sox Nation, a flyover of F-16 jets, and a Ceremonial First Pitch from a Red Sox Alumnus making his long-awaited return to Fenway Park. The following is a detailed description of each aspect of the pre-game ceremonies.

Videos of Memorable Moments from 2007: The ceremonies were kicked off with three videos recapping the most memorable moments from the 2007 season. The first video featured game clips from the 2007 regular season that ended with the Sox winning their first American League East Championship since 1995. The second video showcased clips from the 2007 American League Division and Championship Series, the last video highlighted clips from the 2007 World Series where the Red Sox swept the National League Champion Colorado Rockies in four straight games to win their seventh World Championship title.

The Parade of Nations:
The recap videos were followed by a parade of flags in front of the Green Monster from 62 different countries that represented the wide-spread appeal of the Red Sox throughout the globe. The nations represented by these flags either count Red Sox Nation members as its residents or have citizens who have been in touch with the Red Sox Front Offices via letters and emails professing their love for the 'Olde' Towne Team'. The countries represented were: Afghanistan, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, Austria, The Bahamas, Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Columbia, Costa Rica, Cuba, The Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, France, Gabon, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Guam, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States of America, Venezuela and Vietnam.

The Banners:
All seven World Championship banners were ceremoniously unfurled on the Green Monster to the Theme from Jurassic Park, composed by John Williams, which was chosen because of its gentle yet celebratory grandeur. The 2004 and 2007 championship banners spanned the length of the entire left field wall. The Sox are the only Major League Baseball team to win two World Championships in the 21st century. The large 2004 and 2007 banners were all hand-stitched and created by Heritage Flag of South Boston, MA. The swallow-tail banners representing championships in 1903, 1912, 1915, 1916 and 1918 were made by Flag Graphics of Somerville, MA. All flag and banner related logistics were handled on Opening Day by John Coyne of USA Sign in Boston, MA.

Champions of Boston:
The pre-game ceremony featured an impressive array of athletes from the Bruins, Celtics and Patriots. The 'Champions of Boston' ceremoniously carried the World Championship Rings to be presented to the 2007 Red Sox and handed them over to Red Sox Ownership for presentation.

The Championship Trophies:
The Champions from each of the four Boston sports franchises were accompanied by one of the Championship trophies that each of those franchises won. The Stanley Cup: National Hockey League
The Larry O'Brien Trophy: National Basketball Association
The Lombardi Trophy: National Football League
The Commissioner's Trophy: Major League Baseball By our research, this is the first time that all four trophies have been in one location at the same time.

The 2007 World Championship Rings:
The 2007 Boston Red Sox World Series Championship ring is cast in brilliant white gold. The top of the ring has twenty-eight round brilliant-cut diamonds channel-set around the bottom of the bezel. On the top of the bezel, recessed in black letters, are the words "World Champions". Centered on top of the ring is the Red Sox logo, (a pair of red socks) cast in brilliant white gold each set with four custom fitted natural rubies mounted on a diamond base crest depicting a baseball diamond. The diamond base crest is inlaid with fourteen princess-cut diamonds. The baseball diamond overhangs an inner bezel and is set on a field of four custom faceted synthetic blue sapphires. The left side of the ring has "7th World Series Championship" in raised relief on a black background. Underneath is a depiction of Fenway Park with "4-0 Sweep" at the bottom of the panel. There are two versions of the right side of the ring. For those players' who played on both the 2004 and 2007 World Championship teams, their rings have a panel with the recipient's name in raised relief on a black background above a maroon-enameled initial "B" between two World Series Trophies. For those players who played only on the 2007 team, their rings have one trophy on the right and a maroon-enameled initial "B" on the left. For all rings, at the bottom of the panel in raised relief is the recipient's uniform number with the year "2007". The inside of the ring is engraved with: "Boston Red Sox" and "10-28-07". The ring features a total of 42 diamonds with a total weight of 2.33 carats. The total weight of the ring is 50 dwt. "The ring is stunning! Clearly reflecting the great care the Red Sox take in recognizing their organization," said Tim Larson, president and CEO, Jostens. "Jostens is honored to work with Red Sox on the entire process that culminates in the delivery of the World Championship rings for today's historic ceremony."


The Ring Presentation: The rings were presented in nine distinct groups in order: Manager and Coaches; Trainers and Clubhouse Staff; Catchers; Starting Pitchers; Infield; Outfield; Bullpen; Closer; and the Designated Hitter. The rings for the Manager and the Coaches were given out as the Boston Pops played the Main Theme to the Magnificent Seven, originally composed by Elmer Bernstein, chosen to collectively represent Manager Terry Francona and his team of six coaches. When the Saints Go Marching In was played during the distribution of rings for the Trainers and Clubhouse Staff. The Main Theme to Superman, composed by John Williams, was performed by the Boston Pops when Captain and Catcher Jason Varitek, Catcher Kevin Cash and former Catcher Doug Mirabelli received their rings to represent Varitek's signature at-bat song Kryptonite by the band 3 Doors Down. The Main Theme to Raiders of the Lost Ark, composed by John Williams, was played as the starting pitchers received their rings. The song was chosen to embody the 'go-getter' spirit of the pitching staff that was best embodied by the Indiana Jones character. The 2007 Infield received their World Championship rings to the tune of the popular James Bond Theme, originally composed by Monty Norman, representing their slick defensive and dashing offensive capabilities. The 2007 Outfield received their rings to the strains of the John Williams masterpiece The Throne and End Titles in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, which was selected because of its regality and splendor reflecting the myriad personalities of the Red Sox' spectacular outfield last season. The Bullpen from last season received their rings to the tune of He's a Pirate from the Pirates of the Caribbean series, which was chosen to appropriately represent the 'pirate' theme that the bullpen went by the entire season last year. Closer Jonathan Papelbon received his ring to his signature song, Shipping Up to Boston by the Dropkick Murphys. Designated Hitter David Ortiz, responsible for so many exciting walk-off wins during his tenure here in Boston, received his ring to the Red Sox' victory song at Fenway Park, Dirty Water by the Standells. 2007 World Championship Flag: Created by Flag Graphics of Somerville, MA, the 2007 World Championship Flag was hoisted on the centerfield banner. The flag went up as the Boston Pops played A Hymn To New England, composed by John Williams and played as a tribute to New England, its people and Red Sox fans who have stuck with the team through the good times and bad. Flag Military: Members of the Electronic Systems Center and Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford, MA assisted with the giant United States Flag draped on the Green Monster. They were led by Lt. Gen. Ted Bowlds. National Anthem: The National Anthem was performed by members of the Boston Pops Brass Ensemble led by James Orent. Flyover: The Flyover was presented by the 158 Fighter Wing 'Green Mountain Boys' of the Vermont Air National Guard. Four F-16 'Fighting Falcon' jets flew in and out of Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford, MA for the Opening Day presentation.



Ceremonial First Pitch: The Ceremonial First Pitch was delivered by former Red Sox First Baseman Bill Buckner. Buckner amassed 2715 hits and 1208 RBI in a 21-year career in which he wore the uniform of five different Major League teams. He won the National League batting title with the Chicago Cubs in 1980 with an average of .324 and was named to the National League All-Star Team in 1981. He recorded only 453 strikeouts in 2,517 games and had one of the best at bats-per-strikeout rates in the history of the game. In 1986 he drove in 102 RBI during the regular season to help the Red Sox win the American League Pennant. In Game 6 of the World Series, Mookie Wilson's grounder through his legs led to Ray Knight scoring the winning run for the Mets, capping a 3-run rally, and pushing the series to a 7th game in which the Sox once again surrendered a 3-0 lead. Marty Barrett made the last out for the Sox with Buckner on-deck as the Mets won the World Series. Buckner played part of the 1987 season before being released on July 23, 1987. Buckner made a return to the Red Sox in 1990 and played in 22 games before retiring from baseball. Buckner makes his first visit to Boston since September 1997 when was at Fenway as a Hitting Coach with the Chicago White Sox. Buckner walked out to the Closing Credits theme from the movie Glory, composed by James Horner. The movie is based on the history of the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment during the American Civil War and was one of the first formal units of the U.S. Army to be made up entirely of African American soldiers.



Play Ball: The ceremonial pronouncement of "Play Ball" was made by 88-year old Johnny Pesky, who first donned a Red Sox uniform on April 14, 1942, almost 66 years ago.

Gruesome Classic Comic Book Covers

I came across a small slideshow of comic book covers from the 50's. Apparently, these were so disturbing to folks at the time that Congressional hearings were called. Looking at them, I can see why - sure, things like this can be found in any comic book shop nowadays, but in the 50's? In the early 50's my parents needed a note from a parent if they wanted to do "the Twist" at school dances - it was "too suggestive."

I have this urge to head off to my favorite torrent sites in search of scans of these - they look so deliciously evil. If I'm not mistaken it was issues such as these that served as inspiration for the Creepshow movies. Another brilliant flick, Mars Attacks, also sprang out of viciously violent alien comics of the same time period.

I can't imagine anything today that would shock me as much as these probably did in their time. The 'net has me too desensitized.

See the whole slideshow here.
