Chelsea Clinton Had A Baby, Whereabouts During Benghazi Unknown
- Unto the child of Billary, a child was born. And the New York Post was ON IT, as only the Post can be:
Bill and Hillary Clinton welcomed a brand new Democrat into the fold on Saturday — by sharing the first pictures of their only grandchild.
Chelsea Clinton gave birth Friday night to Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky — sure to be used as a talking point when Hillary hits the campaign trail.
The dad is Chelsea’s husband, hedge-funder Marc Mezvinsky.
Little Charlotte was fashionably dressed for her first photo shoot in a pink-and-blue-striped white blanket and a pink knit cap with a floppy bow. Her granddad sent the baby her very first tweet, although she probably won’t have her own Twitter account for at least another week.
- From the obvious files:
If you’re one of those lucky few with enough disposable income to score your own pair of Google Glass glasses, there’s some bad news for you: a new study found that driving with Google Glass – and especially texting while driving with Google Glass – is nearly as dangerous as doing so with a traditional smart phone. [...]
The results of the research? Both smartphone users and Google Glass users both displayed high levels of distraction when presented with a car braking suddenly in front of them; in essence, there was no discernible difference when it came to being distracted by reading and responding to texts on either device.
- Celebrity chef and teevee star Emeril Lagasse is going to die broke, and you know whose fault that is?
“I have nowhere to go, really, other than broke,” whines Emeril, which is a weird thing for someone worth at least $50 million to say. But he’s just getting started. He’s mostly concerned about how narrow the margins are in the restaurant business… mostly. Fair enough, it’s a tough industry and most don’t make it. But Emeril’s made it past that hump. So what’s happening to drive this wildly successful, internationally famous restaurateur into unavoidable bankruptcy?
Yeah, that’d be Obama:
“Then you add all the Obama nonsense to what it’s become in the last several years—I don’t have anything against Obama,” he said. “I’m just saying the way that, you know, the government should stay out of things. They can’t do what they do right, never mind what I’m doing right.”
Our favorite non-Wonkette place, Happy Nice Time People, has the rest of the story, including Emeril's new television show, which will also no doubt cause him to go broke, thanks to Obama and his "nonsense." BAM!
- CNN is standing behind plagiarist Fareed Zakaria:
CNN President Jeff Zucker said he continues to have confidence in Fareed Zakaria in the wake of charges the CNN host plagiarized material.
“We continue to have complete confidence in Fareed,” Zucker told POLITICO after a luncheon with reporters on Tuesday.
When pressed further if that meant Zakaria would continue appearing on CNN, Zucker repeated that they have complete confidence in the host.
- Are we going to need a bigger boat?
By 2100, researchers say, one-third to one-half of all Earth’s species could be wiped out.
As a result, efforts to protect species are ramping up as governments, scientists and nonprofit organizations try to build a modern version of Noah’s Ark. [...]
The questions are complex. What species do you save? The ones most at risk? Charismatic animals, such as lions or bears or elephants? The ones most likely to survive? The species that hold the most value for us?
One initiative, the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services formed in 2012 by the governments of 121 countries, aims to protect and restore species in wild areas and to protect species like bees that carry out valuable ecosystem service functions in the places people live. Some three-quarters of the world’s food production depends primarily on bees.
- Nerdiest. Mayor. Ever:
Mayor Don Iveson beamed himself up to the Edmonton Comic & Entertainment Expo Saturday morning to deliver a speech on the future of the city.
Before his talk, the charismatic young mayor took off his suit jacket, tie and dress shirt to reveal a Star Trek command gold tunic beneath.
“Quick poll: Star Wars or Star Trek?” Iveson asked the audience in a conference room at the Expo Centre. (The Trekkies cheered louder.) Iveson’s nerdball Trekkie charm won over the crowd yet his speech, Building a Future City, was anything but hokey.
