Congratulations! Your new book, Contagious: Why Things Catch On, is really catching on.Thanks. The Today Show just called and wants me for an interview.You’re the only person I ever heard say you watch TV for the commercials, not the shows.It’s true. I was watching with my family recently, and they had the commercials muted so they could talk. I asked them to turn them back on. When I was in college, I used to duct-tape ads I liked all over my dorm room’s walls.
Calm down lefty media hyperventilators! After you all jumped down Tom Corbett's throat for his comment about having no Latino staff members, the Governor's people put out a press release smack-down, pointing out that in fact they've actually got ONE Latino staffer, Maria Montero, the Director of the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs.I would have published this sooner, but I was waiting from a response from Corbett's people confirming that there's really no one else.

It's a cliché, but one that's apparently good for the city's tourism dollars, so hey: Who's complaining.Still, it's fun to see an original take on the "Rocky training montage" genre of Internet videos. Like this one. With puppets. And an alternate ending.
As the immortal hip hop duo Mobb Deep rapped back in 1995, “ain’t no such thing as halfway crooks.” In "Shook Ones Pt. II," Prodigy warns, if you “speak the wrong words, man you will get touched.”Given the actions of the Department of Justice this past week, it seems like they might know a little bit about that. In response to a report from the Associated Press in May of last year regarding a foiled bombing plot in Yemen, the DOJ launched a two-month-long probe into the AP’s phone records, netting communications information from more than 100 reporters and editors across multiple bureaus, according to AP estimates. In some cases, the secret probe extended to home and cell phone records as well, so the investigation was thorough.
Today, officials in Union County said Kai, whose real name Caleb Lawrence McGillvary, is wanted in the bludgeoning death of a North Jersey attorney. He is considered armed and dangerous. According to police, he was last seen at a PATCO stop in Haddonfield.
On Tuesday, Swedish photographer Paul Hansen, winner of the 2012 World Press Photo award for best picture, was vindicated of charges that his winning image was a “fraudulent forgery” following weeks of mudslinging by a handful of photo-purists who took issue with the way the picture was created. The striking photograph, which depicts a group of Palestinians mourning two young victims of an Israeli missile strike, raised a stink due to its creative use of toning and Hansen's reliance on post-production processing techniques to add an emotive quality to the work.In a strongly worded rebuke published on the photography blog
