Obama-Cantor relationship sours - News from The Hill By Mike Lillis

News from The Hill

Obama-Cantor relationship sours By Mike Lillis

How are relations between President Obama and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.)? Well, it's complicated.

Earlier this month, the House majority leader stood by Obama's side as the president signed a pediatric research law championed by Cantor. It marked a rare case of ideological opposites joining forces to move legislation in an election year.

Just two weeks later, the kumbaya moment was old news. The powerful politicians this week traded barbs over which party is to blame for the House's failure to consider immigration reform legislation — a spat suggesting the odds are long that Congress will overhaul the system in 2014.

Flyer, information and entry form for the Easter 5K Run to the Cross April 19, 2014 at Taylorsville United Methodist Church


According to information from the Taylorsville United Methodist Church website, the first ever ‘Run to the Cross’ will take place this Saturday in Taylorsville, Carroll County, Maryland.

If you are looking to get outside after a long-cold winter of being cooped-up inside, this is a great family event for everyone to enjoy – and celebrate spring and Easter. And oh, was it mentioned that there will also be great food available - pulled pork sandwiches. And all the proceeds go to several good causes…

The 5 K run will go from South Carroll High School to Taylorsville United Methodist Church on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. (TUMC). (You can run this or walk this 5 K.)

This 5 K run will travel west on Route 26, cross Route 27 (with State Police help) and travel south on Route 27 to TUMC.

At the end of the race enjoy live music, pulled pork sandwiches (free for runners) and the final awards ceremony.

This run is a joint venture brought to you by TUMC and SCHS’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes. (FCA)

Proceeds will be given to both the FCA and the No More Malaria Campaign. (Every 60 seconds a child dies in Africa of Malaria. This campaign has already cut that number in half, we want to stop deaths from malaria.) Your entry fee will be tax deductible.

There are two ways to register: One is to download the run entry form, fill it out, and mail it back to TUMC along with a check. Please register by April 6th. The registration fee is $10 for students; $15 for SCHS Alum; and $20 for adults.

The second way to register is to click below. Make sure you have a credit card ready and you can register totally on line.

Note there is a 2-4 dollar increase to offset on-line costs.

Man at Hospital Ordered to Pay $525 for Refilling 89-Cent Drink - Trending Now on Patch - Westminster, MD Patch

Man at Hospital Ordered to Pay $525 for Refilling 89-Cent Drink - Trending Now on Patch - Westminster, MD Patch

http://westminster.patch.com/groups/trending-in-america/p/man-at-hospital-ordered-to-pay-525-for-refilling-89cent-drink

Man also banned from working at VA Medical Center. Posted by  (Editor) , 

"The cost of a drink isn't what it used to be for a North Charleston man who was slapped with a $525 fine for refilling his 89-cent drink and now faces federal charges.

On-site construction worker Chris Lewis told WCSC News he didn't know refills at the VA Medical Center in downtown Charleston weren't free.

A hospital spokesperson called it a "theft of government property," the station reported." Read more:

While many Christian congregations have activities or services scheduled for Maundy Thursday or Good Friday, Easter Saturday is often a quiet day that slips by before the celebrations on Easter Sunday.

But Taylorsville United Methodist Church is hoping to start a new Easter Saturday tradition with the “Run to the Cross” 5K race.

“The whole point is you’re running to the cross the day before Easter and looking to see it’s empty, and the next day you’re going to see that the tombstone is rolled away,” said the Rev. Sarah Dorrance, pastor of Taylorsville UMC. “It’s very specific, rain or shine, on Easter Saturday.”

Dorrance said she got the idea of the church hosting a 5K race while talking to colleagues from other parts of the country. Read more here: http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/features/religion/running-to-the-cross/article_5a6ef6b4-c8c1-5fa0-a54d-5b161e2760f9.html

Harvard: That time the Linguistics Department accused female students at the Divinity School of pronoun envy.

Harvard: That time the Linguistics Department accused female students at the Divinity School of pronoun envy.: "By Mike Vuolo"is a phrase
coined by Cal Watkins of the Harvard Linguistics Department in November 1971
Above are the opening, very matter-of-fact lines of "Pronoun Envy," written by the poet and classicist Anne Carson and published February in the New Yorker. The poem unfolds briefly as a straightforward narrative—involving "female students" and male pronouns—before lifting off, as Carson put it to me, "as a sort of air balloon whose buoyancy depends on bits of 'meaningless plunging' that hold up the corners." Beneath the exquisite wordplay, though, and the compelling imagery and the meaningless plunging, a phrase borrowed from the poet Wallace Stevens, is a real story about language and gender.
In the fall of 1971, Linda Barufaldi, then a student in the master's program at Harvard Divinity School, enrolled in "Eschatology and Politics." The class, also known as "Church 174," was about the influence of religion and spirituality on liberation movements, fertile ground after a decade of protests, marches, and many an "-in" in the service of social change.

One of the history’s greatest military minds, Sun Tzu, has had a long history of influence over those who would carry out the plans of warfare for two-thousand years.
His writings compiled in The Art of War have withstood the test of time. They have even been used outside of arena of warfare in other strategic endeavors.

Reply-all email chain fail: The email trick to help you avoid them.

"No storm leaves as long a swath of destruction in your email inbox as the endless reply-all chain, and this week a Category 5 has been tearing through the journo-verse: a PR notice (for Netflix’s new show Marco Polo—see it!) that made the fatal error of listing all recipients in the public CC field, rather than the private BCC field. What happened next will not surprise you:"

As explained on Google support, the “mute” button will hide all future messages in the conversation—but not delete them, should you ever one day desire to confront the darkness you once avoided. Why Google gave such a powerful tool such a slight (though appropriate) name and tucked it under the “more” menu, I don’t know.

NSA knew about, exploited Heartbleed for years: Bloomberg report.

NSA knew about, exploited Heartbleed for years: Bloomberg report.: By Lily Hay Newman

"It just doesn't end. Bloomberg is reporting that, according to “two people familiar with the matter,” the NSA has known about the Heartbleed vulnerability for at least two years—and was using it to collect information about people instead of, you know, telling someone about it and getting it fixed.

With millions of websites compromised, people all over the world changing their passwords for protection, the Canadian government suspending electronic tax filing, and people speculating about whether Heartbleed is the “worst vulnerability ever,” this could end up looking pretty bad for the agency. Good thing it already has a sparkly-clean public image, or it might be in trouble.

According to Bloomberg, it doesn’t seem that the NSA created Heartbleed—it just  found the bug and used it. " http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2014/04/11/nsa_knew_about_exploited_heartbleed_for_years_bloomberg_report.html?wpisrc=newsletter_jcr:content&mc_cid=67b8a19711&mc_eid=b27361148d

Today, President Obama is nominating former Office of Management and Budget director Sylvia Burwell to take Kathleen Sebelius’ newly-vacant position as secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

News from The Hill Michigan's waning congressional clout By Russell Berman

News from The Hill

Michigan's waning congressional clout By Russell Berman

Michigan's unlikely dominance in congressional clout is about to take a hit.

Though the state is the country's ninth-largest by population, it is tops along with California with six committee chairmen – four Republicans in the House and two Democrats in the Senate. And the two longest-serving members of the House, Reps. John Dingell (D) and John Conyers (D), hail from Michigan and carry more than a century of congressional seniority between them.

But that will change in 2015 with the retirement of Dingell, the dean of the House, and three of the men wielding gavels in the Capitol: Reps. Dave Camp (R) and Mike Rogers (R), and Sen. Carl Levin (D). Read the story here.
