Jets might do HBO Hard Knocks again

http://twitter.com/#!/65KOI/status/186893597537341440

The New York Jets don’t care about winning football games, they just want to make headlines. That’s the only reason we could see them wanting to do HBO Hard Knocks again when they will already be under heavy media scrutiny with Tim Tebow in town.

Jets are getting a lot of attention for a team that will possibly not break the .500 record mark #QBIssues #HardKnocks

HBO Hardknocks may follow the #Jets again? Um…No Thanks! That would take Tebowmania to another level!

I really hope the #jets are om HBO's #hardknocks. I'd love to see the Tebow-Rexy dynamic

If the #Jets do #HardKnocks again, I promise to take even more Percocet and muscle relaxers than currently prescribed. #NFL

no. i don't want the Jets on hardknocks this year. too much to focus on as it is, too many doubting our intentions.

— Alyssa Lang WLTX (@AlyssaLang) April 2, 2012

I think I changed my mind. #Jets are already gona be such a circus we might as well be on #HardKnocks again. Few more cameras? #nobigdeal

— Matt Heiniger (@HeinigeronSport) April 2, 2012

The #Jets might do another #HardKnocks? Congratulations to @TimTebow on getting his own cable tv show!

— Sal (@Its_Sal) April 2, 2012

Whether its Tim Tebows media frenzy, #Jets lockeroom issues, or that Rex Ryans is an attention junkie, #HardKnocks was meant for the #Jets.

These Man-Made Substances Are 100% Real. Yes, Really.

Every year, brilliant people invent some pretty amazing things… but most people don’t think about it. In fact, there are many times that we’re not even aware of new inventions. It can be easy to forget what we humans are capable of–especially with all of the idiots who seem to surround you during your morning commute.

If you want to feel good about what our minds are capable of accomplishing, take a look at the list of amazing man-made substances below.  

1.) Aluminum Bubble Wrap

These packing bubbles are actually able to absorb energy. Which is good for shopping online and horrible for popping.

2.) BacillaFilla

This genetically-modified microbe has been created to fix the cracks in sidewalks and roadways on its own.

3.) Titanium Foam

This can not only replace bone, but encourage new bone to grow around it.

4.) One-Way Bulletproof Glass

Let’s hope the good guys are the ones behind the bullet proof side.

5.) Artificial Spider Silk

Finally, super-strong silk that’s just as soft. Your move, spiders.

6.) Pykrete

Mold-able, bullet-resistant wood that is capable of floating. Awesome.

7.) Molecular Superglue

This allows us to create teeny-tiny, but remarkably strong bonds between molecules.

8.) DMSO

This chemical solvent, which was originally a byproduct of wood pulping, has done wonders for the medical world, reducing inflammation and helping fight fungal infections.

9.) Carbon Nanotubes

Six times lighter than steel and potentially hundreds of times stronger, these nanotubes have the potential to change the way we build things.

10.) Graphene Aerogel

Not only is this the world’s lightest material, it is also strong and elastic.

(via Listverse, Gizmodo)

Before we become too satisfied with ourselves, we need to remember that there’s still so much we have left to accomplish…but these are some pretty amazing starts.

Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and more comment on Gosnell verdict

http://twitter.com/#!/SarahPalinUSA/status/334059044627177473

While abortion advocates tried to assure themselves that today’s Kermit Gosnell verdict would have no effect on the nation’s attitude toward abortion, Sarah Palin saw the conviction as a sign that America is back on track. And while others like Sally Kohn spun Gosnell’s conviction as a sign that abortion could now get back on track as safe and affordable, Sen. Ted Cruz issued a statement clarifying that more abortions is not the solution to preventing more Gosnells.

We need to keep working to prevent such crimes against humanity—deliberate infanticide—from happening again: 1.usa.gov/10upAtR #Gosnell

— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) May 13, 2013

No court can ever provide proper relief for the unimaginable pain that Kermit Gosnell inflicted on women and their children. His atrocities shed light on the truly gruesome acts of late-term abortion. We need to keep working to prevent such crimes against humanity — deliberate infanticide — from happening again. May we all remember this heart-breaking case as a vivid example of the urgent need to protect innocent human life at all stages.

Senator @marcorubio Statement On The First Degree Murder Conviction Of Kermit Gosnell: 1.usa.gov/17Y8J90

— Senator Rubio Press (@SenRubioPress) May 13, 2013

The first degree murder conviction of Kermit Gosnell brings some closure to this horrific case, but we must act to address the broader problems highlighted by this tragedy. Congress should conduct a thorough investigation into the practices of late-term abortions in America with the goal of ensuring that these atrocities are never repeated in the future. My wife, Jeanette, and I hold the victims of Mr. Gosnell’s violent abuses in our prayers. While the lives lost and ruined because of a monster like Kermit Gosnell can never be recovered, we must strive to ensure that women and unborn children don’t fall prey in the future to greedy and overzealous abortion doctors. Life is precious at every stage, and America’s policies must reflect this fact at every turn.

Kermit #Gosnell guilty of 1st degree murder. His acts are reprehensible. I join all in decrying his sickening disregard for basic dignity.

— Senator Pat Toomey (@SenToomey) May 13, 2013

Kermit #Gosnell committed horrific crimes. Glad my House colleagues are looking into ways to ensure these tragedies don’t happen again.

The #Gosnell trial is not about one man, it’s about an unaccountable industry that preys upon vulnerable & innocent: youtu.be/0IdEw8-s9RE
