The image also showed several of Youngblood’s fellow residents at the East Neck Nursing Center in West Babylon looking on with a mix of shock and delight as the dancers bumped and ground for their amusement.”

” The poem “Our Generation” was posted to Twitter this week by Derek Nichols. It was written by his younger brother Jordan. It has an interesting concept: the message varies depending on if you read it bottom-to-top or top-to-bottom.
The poem, as read top-to-bottom:
Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Was how we handled our problems.
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn’t come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around
If you read the poem in reverse, the dire tone is flipped on its head:”
Update: An astute reader has written to inform us of the fact that this poem very closely mimics one written and published back in 2008 by someone named Jonathan Reed which took second place in AARP’s U@50 video contest that year .

” Between the biting winds and the snow storms, it’s been a tough winter . Some people are running out of places to put all the snow, but not farmer Greg Novak from Foley , Minnesota.
Building one this big is very different and catching all the neighbors’ eyes.”I’d say it’s pretty amazing. Not many people do this,” said a Foley resident.
” When he started building it, I was like; you’ve got to be kidding me, right? It’s huge,” said Novak’s nephew, Tyler Miller. Novak started the snowman two months ago from the snow that was crushing his greenhouses.”
” More than a million Rio Carnival revellers laid aside bitterness at Brazilian leaders to join wild festivities Saturday in what has been dubbed “the greatest show on Earth.”
” The Rio tourist board said 1.3 million people joined the fray to cavort as the Marvelous City’s oldest bloco or street party group Cordao da Bola Preta danced to a raucous samba beat. A total of four million are accepted during the entire five-day event.”
” But there was a reminder of some of Brazil’s social problems as festivities in the northern city of Salvador were tainted by the fatal shooting of a young man.”
” Rio’s flamboyantly dressed residents were adamant that, for now, they had spent enough time demonstrating — and wanted to let loose instead.”
“Carnival is carnival. Celebrate! Protests can wait — at least for now,” shouted Christophe Land, one of 50 men decked out in black “Spiderman” outfits.”

” From the original poster:
So, I’m in Kentucky for work and today when we got back, 1000 high school students had checked into our hotel. They had been making quite the ruckus tonight, but then did this to celebrate the start of the Olympics. Not the best video, (cause my fear kept me pretty far from the edge) but that’s 18 levels of them singing! Amazing!

” Raising money for Obama’s presidential campaigns turns out to have been highly lucrative work. As The Blaze reports, there are now 23 Obama bundlers that hold foreign ambassadorships.
“ Noah Bryson Mamet, who bundled $500,000 for President Barack Obama hoped the Senate would pave the way for his first trip to Argentina – by confirming him as ambassador,” The Blaze writes.
Mamet isn’t the only ambassador to have never visited his country either. This week, George J. Tsunis, who raised $1.3 million for Obama, made a similar confession. WHen asked if he’d ever been to Norway, he replied “I have not.” “
Open Secrets describes bundlers thusly :
” Bundlers are people with friends in high places who, after bumping against personal contribution limits, turn to those friends, associates, and, well, anyone who’s willing to give, and deliver the checks to the candidate in one big “bundle.”
Even though these donors direct more money to the candidates than anyone else, disclosure can be spotty, candidates generally release bundlers by ranges of fundraising, indicated in this chart with the “max” and “min” columns, and with the top ranges being simply “$500,000 or more.” NOTE: Federal Election Commission regulations only require disclosure of funds bundled by registered lobbyists. In 2008, both Barack Obama and John McCain agreed to disclose any bundlers who raised over $50,000 for their campaigns. Obama’s re-election campaign is again disclosing those bundlers for the 2012 election. No 2012 Republican presidential candidates have agreed to voluntarily disclose their entire bundlers lists. “
