You sank my onion stalk! Denis Fazenda brings the gameplay of Battleship to the garden. Ryan from http://www.TheDigitalLifestyle.tv takes a look.
The fiasco that sank millions of Americans, including one journalist, who thought he knew better. A veteran New York Times economics reporter, Edmund L. Andrews was intimately aware of the dangers posed by easy mortgages from fast-buck lenders. But, eager to buy a home and start a new life, he gave in to temptation and began a surreal adventure into the mortgage mayhem that nearly wrecked our economy. Busted weaves together the author’s own ride to the edge of bankruptcy with the tragicomic stories of his lenders, the Wall Street pros behind them, and the policymakers in Washington who were oblivious until it was too late. The story takes Andrews to the offices of Alan Greenspan, the mansions of subprime-mortgage millionaires in southern California, a despondent deal makers’ convention in Las Vegas, and Wall Street. Rich with on-the-ground reporting, Busted is a darkly humorous exploration of the cynicism and self-destructive judgment that led to America’s biggest economic calamity in generations.
PHILADELPHIA (AP)—Rasheed Wallace(notes) keeps making his hometown his stomping ground.
Wallace rooted on the Phillies at Game 5 of the World Series and he popped by to watch Philly boxing great Bernard Hopkins train for an upcoming bout.
Bostons top reserve didnt stop having fun just because it was time to play. Wallace hit six 3-pointers as part of a 20-point effort and the Celtics remained unbeaten with a 105-74 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.
Its home, Wallace said. A lot of friends and family dont get the opportunity to see me play. Everybody cant get that league pass and all that stuff. Its always fun to come back here and play.
Wallace, who wore a black Phillies jacket to the game, easily had his best game in his short stint with the Celtics. He pretty much caught the ball, let it rip and watched it sink through the net. Wallace made 6 of 8 3-pointers and sank each long attempt about as easily as a layup in the paint.
Wallace was about the only Celtic who had his normal night, even getting whistled for a technical foul for arguing with the refs in the third quarter. His fuse burst late in the quarter when he appeared to be fouled on a shot. The ref called a foul, he just didnt call it a shooting foul and denied Wallace a trip to the free-throw line.
Wallace kept badgering the refs over the perceived blown call until he was hit with the T with 4.5 seconds left in the third.
I just wanted to get my point across, Wallace said. I wasnt going to get thrown out.
Paul Pierce(notes) scored 21 points as the Celtics improved to 5-0 even without the usual standout performances from Kevin Garnett(notes) and Ray Allen(notes).
Were going to win because of our defense no matter how good our offense is, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said.
Allen didnt score his first field goal until the third quarter and had five points. Garnett made just one basket on seven shots and scored three points when he was yanked with the game out of hand.
By the time Wallace got his technical, the game had spiraled into a blowout. Allen scored his first basket and Pierce hit a 3-pointer in a 14-2 run to open the quarter that shook off the Sixers for good.
Eddie House(notes) made four 3s off the bench for the Celtics and scored 12 points. Shelden Williams(notes) added 11 points, helping the Celtics bench to a productive night after the starters and Wallace made this one a rout.
Boston went 14 for 20 from 3-point range. The Sixers failed to hit a 3 until Jrue Holiday(notes) made one with 1:28 left in the game. The basket only cut Bostons lead to 102-71.
Andre Iguodala(notes) led the Sixers with 17 points. Philadelphia missed 15 of 16 3-point attempts.
Thaddeus Young(notes) was the only other Sixer in double digits, scoring 11 points as they snapped their modest two-game winning streak.
The Sixers have struggled in two losses against the elite teams in the Eastern Conference (Orlando, Boston).
They are veterans and we know they know how to play together, Young said.
Wallace, friends with Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, didnt offer a World Series prediction. The Yankees hold a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
Weve got the bats for it, weve got the pitching for it, Wallace said.
He was also smart enough to stay out of Hopkins way during an afternoon visit at a local boxing gym. Hopkins, who attended the game, will fight Enrique Ornelas in a light heavyweight bout on Dec. 2 at Temples Liacouras Center.
Nah, I didnt get in the ring with him this time, Wallace said. Hes got a fight coming up and I didnt want to damage him or nothing.
Instead, he saved his blows for the 76ers.
Notes: Rivers said he did not expect to hear from the NBA over a postgame incident in Boston involving New Orleans guard Chris Paul(notes) and the Celtics Rajon Rondo(notes). Rondo didnt want to talk about it. The Celtics swept the season series (4-0) last season. The biggest cheer came for Phillies World Series highlights.

A friendly large Green Turtle on King Cruiser. King Cruiser is a large (87 x 25 metres) car ferry that sank in 1997 travelling from Phuket to PhiPhi, in Thailand.
The wreck sits in 31 metres, with the top at about 16 metres and is covered in marine life, from large schools of reef fish, barracudas, lionfish, and beautiful garden of soft coral. Truly a great dive

Despite debuting to mixed reviews, analysts say the fourth installment of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean performed well enough at the box office for its opening weekend.
“I hear a rumor... Jack Sparrow’s in London.”
Reports say the pirate flick debuted at more than $90 million for the weekend, putting it in the top spot for the year so far. (Video: CBS)
Still -- as Box Office Mojo Reports -- compared to the series’ previous installments, ‘Stranger Tides’ “sank.”
“At World's End drew $114.7 million on its first weekend in May 2007 (not including $13.2 million in Thursday night previews), while Dead Man's Chest raked in a then-record $135.6 million opening weekend back in July 2006. Adjusted for ticket price inflation, those grosses would be the equivalent of $131 million and $163 million, respectively.”
But the Los Angeles Times reports -- overseas -- it raked in the big bucks.
“Internationally it took in $256.3 million, the highest such box office performance ever not accounting for inflation and exchange rates. It easily beat the previous record of $236 million held by 2009's ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.’”
In a piece written prior to the opening -- a blogger for The Wall Street Journal says, the fourth ‘Pirates’ faced an uphill battle.
“Aside from horror films ... it is fairly rare for a franchise to get to a 4th film unless it has been a looong time since number three and they are doing a reboot of the franchise. ...But, there is a reason Hollywood tends to stop at three — because that’s when enthusiasm for a film series starts to run dry and originality tends to run out.”
But according to a writer from Variety -- the fourth ‘Pirates’ flick -- a reboot -- isn’t like the original trilogy. He says, the first three movies got a little muddy -- but ‘Stranger Tides’....
“...serves as a welcome corrective, reviving the fun, feather-light frivolity... It has nary an original idea and still doesn't make much sense, but it's lost all pretensions that it should...”
According to The Wall Street Journal, ‘Pirates’ centerpiece Johnny Depp has said he is looking forward to reprising his role as Jack Sparrow for a fifth installment in the series.

This story depicts a tragic infliction on a young man’s life when his parents were killed in an automobile accident and his attempt to cope with the total loss of his family.
The young man’s reaction to this dilemma was to sell the home he had inherited and to purchase a large sailboat, which he singularly sailed to the Bahamas for the purpose of starting a new life for himself within a new environment. He lived aboard his sailboat near a small island within the Bahamas island chain, where his sadness slowly ebbed and eventually dissipated.
The story also relates to the many island friends James Patterson made while living in the area and the physical relationships he shared with some of the native females of the island, including meeting a brash female tourist from New York City who was visiting the island at the time.
The adventure also includes his detailed physical relations with the brash city girl from the Big Apple that eventually led to love after finding and excavating a small fortune in gold coins aboard an old Spanish galleon wreck, which sank in that vicinity many years ago.
Their find, in conjunction with their torrid sexual escapades throughout the area, eventually formed a trusting bond and mutual respect for each other.
The funds from the sale of the Spanish coins allowed them to purchase a new and larger sailboat, which they kept in the Bahamas, and also allowed them to purchase an expensive apartment overlooking the Hudson River in New York City.
They also initiated and formed a distinguished restaurant in the Soho district of New York, where it became viable over a period of time, and eventually, James and Sarah sold it for a great profit.
Their thirst for new challenges and adventures seemed to be endless.
