I wonder if this has anything to do with stronger storms here in the U.S. and abroad. Heard off the wire today that China plans to seed clouds by firing rockets containing 100′s of cigarette-size sticks of silver iodide over Beijing’s skies in order to force a rain prior to the Olympics. And I read the reason for doing this is to cleanse the city air of pollution because the city air is not clean enough to breathe. This is not good science and should be stopped immediatly messing with the forces of nature like this reminds me of the choas theory when a butterfly flaps its wings in China a Tornado happens in kansas.

Got an interesting email from a girl friend about a new site that just launched called women geeks. The site is looking for female guest authors to write articles pertaining to Geek stuff and has a staff of women writers . When I heard about it I was like hell yea sign me up so I sent an email to them they loved blog so much they asked me to write some articles for them in the coming months. The site uses a WordPress blog and covers everything geek from science to computers with an emphasis on things for women. Should be interesting to see who else they have for guest writers and what they plan to talk about., since at the moment I am kinda stumped on what to write about.
This really nice Dentist in Nashville helped my friend Ashley with a bad tooth and did so on his own time and for barely anything just what it cost him in product which was another peice of tooth for the girl. I ve heard about alot of great people in my time but when I heard this story I had to get in on telling the world what a great guy this Dr. Vaughan is. I know if I ever needed a Dentist in Nashville Tennessee then I will no doubt be giving him a call. I never really liked going to the Dentist I mean the whole drilling sound and all that freaks me out but I think I could handle an hour or two in this guys chair no problem. Keep on rocking on Dr. Michael Vaughan I am sure one day the whole world will notice just how much of a great person you are.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.–The space shuttle Discovery roared off its Florida launch pad and soared into orbit on Tuesday on a key mission whose failure could end the U.S. shuttle program prematurely.
After two weather postponements during the weekend, skies cleared at the Kennedy Space Center and allowed NASA to successfully launch Discovery on just the second shuttle flight since the destruction of the shuttle Columbia and the deaths of seven crew members in February 2003.
Discovery, carrying six Americans and a German, lifted off from the seaside launch site at 2:38 p.m. EDT and jettisoned its booster rockets about 2 and a half minutes into the flight. It reached orbit about 9 minutes after launch.
“Discovery is ready, the weather is beautiful and America is ready to return the space shuttle to flight,” said launch director Mike Leinbach a few minutes before liftoff. “So good luck and Godspeed Discovery.”
“I can’t think of a better place to be, here on the Fourth of July,” shuttle commander Steve Lindsey replied, referring to U.S. Independence Day.
Discovery’s 12-day mission is critical to NASA’s plan to finish the half-built, $100 billion space station before the shuttle fleet is retired in 2010. Another accident or serious problem likely would ground the shuttles permanently.
NASA launched the 115th shuttle mission since 1981 after managers decided a crack in the foam that insulates Discovery’s massive external tank posed no launch hazard.
