  1. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-callahan/facebook-ipo-mark-zuckerberg_b_1527101.html?ref=technology&ir=Technology Facebook IPO: The Rich Get Even Richer and More Powerful Is the Facebook initial public offering -- one of the largest IPOs in history -- a symbol of American prosperity? In some sense, yes. A technological innovation that began as an extracurricular obsession of a brilliant college student has now become a global "social utility" with 900 million users. In important ways, Facebook has transformed how people interact with each other and demonstrated yet again the
  2. I'm in the Chicago area also and I'm really tired of hearing about the summit and the protesters. I remember the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention, these protests won't come anywhere near the violence that went on then thanks to Mayor Daley #1 and the cops.
  3. I'm inclined to believe that Bill and Melinda Gates have given away a good size of their fortune, more then Bono, I could be wrong. The Gates do have more money then Bono for sure. I know Bono and Ali lost a lot of their own money with Edun.
  4. Facebook should get rid of the timeline crap, everyone hates it and so do I. I don't use the timeline and if it's forced on me eventually, I'm done with it. I don't use it that much anyway.
  5. On Andrea Mitchell's show, which is on now. She's interviewing him regarding Africa, etc. With all the money that's been thrown at Africa, it should be doing a lot better then it is. Nothing will ever change without eliminating corrupt governments, including our own.
  6. Yup, like the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, I think he can pretty much take care of things on his own. I'm still 1-1/2 years unemployed so no one gets any financial aid from me. I'll always support the ONE campaign cause it doesn't cost anything.

  8. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10150858023434322 Bono was a surprise guest during a surprise acoustic concert tonight in New York City featuring fellow Irishman Glen Hansard. Hansard was performing at The Living Room, a small "acoustic listening room," and we're told he was doing a show for future broadcast on Sirius satellite radio. Bono joined him on stage for the last song of the night, "The Auld Triangle."
  9. http://www.younghollywood.com/news/will-i-am-borrowed-melody-from-u2-song.html Record label boss Jimmy Iovine has told how will.i.am lifted from a U2 track to write The Black Eyed Peas' megahit I Gotta Feeling. The Interscope chief claims the rapper borrowed a melody from U2 song I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight after he produced material for the Irish band's album No Line On The Horizon. However, will.i.am ensured there were no hard feelings with Bono and his bandmates by telling the rockers they had inspired his club anthem. Iovine explains, "I sent will.i.am over to t
  10. I don't see the pic on the home page either, but it's a creepy photo and I don't like it.
  11. Thanks Mich! Bono's starting look his age and tired, I can relate.
  12. You were so lucky to work with him. I've been obsessing about everything Davy since the sad news. I haven't read one bad thing from anyone who knew or worked with him. Everyone states what an incredibly nice guy he was. He was still taking care of his old friend Basil Foster, the man he apprenticed with to be a jockey but pushed Davy to go into show business, great story http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/racing/article-2102648/The-Monkees-frontman-Davy-Jones-repaying-Newmarket-trainer-setting-road-stardom.html#comments I had read some nasty gossip regarding his wife Jessica and possible p
  13. Good slide show of Davy's life http://www.huffingtonpost...r-monkees_n_1310769.html
  14. Neil Diamond wrote most of their songs, which shows more of Neil's genius.
  15. OMG! I've never seen this or knew about it. Thanks so much for posting it Mich! This is awesome and I love the crowd signing along.
  16. This is so sad, only 66 years young I grew up with The Monkees and like millions of teenage girls back then was massively in love with Davy Jones. I still watch them on the weekends. They were still touring too. Davy was an actor starting at age 11, both stage and TV. He was the Artful Dodger in the musical Oliver and the Oliver cast was on the Ed Sullivan show the same night the Beatles made their U.S. debut on the show back in 1964. Davy watched from backstage and decided that's what he wanted to do when he saw all the girls in the audience going crazy. Many artists from my youth h

Just like going to church and that's just the way they wanted it and to remember Whitney and to say their goodbyes. I totally agree and the part which broke my heart was seeing Ray J crying when Whitney's casket was being carried out of the church. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCu_q2wttNs It was heartbreaking to watch when they carried her casket out to her singing I Will Always Love You. Her poor mother had to be held up b
  18. I watched the whole funeral. Kevin Costner was very moving and he was having a hard time. Hats off to him. I just watched The Bodyguard the other day, not a bad movie and Whitney did a good job.
