President Obama got a reminder this week that all the problems he inherited are increasingly his responsibility. He made his first trip to New Orleans since taking office. In a town hall meeting, the president heard complaints about the slow recovery after hurricane Katrina.
According to Andy Dehart, Director of Biological Programs at the National Aquarium and shark expert for Discovery Communications, sharks can live up to 60 years, with the spiny dogfish reaching 70 to 100 years.

How much radiation does it take to cause harm to fetal tissue? We really don’t know. Any radiation is harmful to dividing cells, but detectable damage is much harder to determine.

The time away from BabyCenter will be spent in front of my kids instead of my computer. It means more thrift store shopping, more walking with Rex, more time with my mom and my friends, more painting projects, and then when after two weeks I going nuts and ready to put my manic brain to work again at another project it means cracking down on that TV pilot my agent has been pushing me to finish as well as writing a musical.
Specialist Giunta then advanced forward on his own initiative. As he crested the top of a hill, he observed two insurgents carrying away an American soldier. He immediately engaged the enemy, killing one and wounding the other. Today was a great day! I had the chance to work at McDonald’s and see first hand what the employees do on a daily basis. After the restaurant visit, I went to the Miami Seaquarium and swam with the dolphins.
