Comcast Outage

Comcast’s cable Internet service encountered problems causing users from U.S. east coast cities unable to access the Internet.

According to Doreen Vigue, Boston-based spokeswoman for Comcast, the company’s engineers are aggressively working to fix the problem. Comcast is considered as the largest cable operator, as well as Internet service provider in the U.S. Providing cable television service, telephone service, and broadband Internet to both residential and commercial customers in 39 states.

Meanwhile, numerous Twitter postings point that a Domain Name System (DNS) server problem was the problem that occurred.

DNS converts human-friendly Internet address like “www.seedol.com” into a numeric Internet address. "Our engineers are working very aggressively to fix the problem," said Doreen Vigue, a Boston-based spokeswoman for Comcast. Twitter postings point to a DNS (domain name system) server problem.

DNS is the system that converts human-friendly Internet address like "www.pcworld.com" into a numeric Internet address, which are vital to Internet communications. If the DNS servers go down there's no way for a user's PC to address data correctly and so communication stops.

Bear Gall Bladder Uses

There is a big hit on the internet search today regarding “bear gallbladder uses”. It seems that people are curious about the usefulness of this particular organ that comes from animal to human.

As we try to find out what exactly is the benefit of this bear gallbladder, there are some interesting facts about the uses of this bear gallbladder. One thing for certain is that it produces bile that was often used in the traditional Chinese medicine.

Bile itself is a fluid that was synthesized in the liver. It was then stored and concentrated in the gallbladder and concealed into the small intestine via the bile ducts to help in the absorption of fatty acids and cholesterol. Other than that, bile also carries lots of waste products away from the liver into the intestine so that they can be eliminated.

It surely is one medicine that good enough to be used by people who wanted to lose some of their weights as well to keep in good shape. In a domestic market, it worth about $400 – $600 each, but if it’s pounded into the typical Asian pharmacies often look like, the price could go up more than 30 times of that domestic price. It surely becomes one of the most highly valued commodities on the black market.

It surely must be sold in a black market because this kind of medicine was extracted illegally from a bear. It is prohibited by law, anywhere in the world to kill a bear and uses it for trade use. This kind of business involves millions of Dollars as well many other crimes, not to mention the possible threat that it brings. Along with the trafficking as well as the smuggling, people’s lives are often getting killed because the rareness and the high value of money that it brings.

Preview with Sam Elliott & John Corbett “November Christmas”

“November Christmas”, a new 'Hallmark Hall of Fame' presentation starring Emmy award and Golden Globe award nominee John Corbett from “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” and “Sex and the City”, and Emmy Award nominee Sam Elliott from “Buffalo Girls”.

The movie is all about a small Rhode Island community that helps create a holiday for a young ill girl named Vanessa. Tonight on CBS will be aired the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie “November Christmas,” starring John Corbett and Sam Elliott.

The story begins with John Corbett asking around all the people in the little town where he just moved in to help him create the best holidays for his dying little girl. John Corbett along with his wife (Sarah Paulson) wanted their seriously ill daughter (Emily Alyn Lind) to have possibly the last Christmas holiday in her life before her life ends. It appears that the little girl in this movie is so sick that we surely can feel how tragic her life must have been. Sam Elliot plays as the farmer that has his own family problem with his wife that was played by Karren Allen. Elliot grows pumpkins and Christmas tree to sell. “November Christmas” is surely one movie that you don’t want to miss.

Tonight CBS will air the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie “November Christmas,” starring John Corbett and Sam Elliott. This movie is guaranteed to be a tear jerker…I can tell just by watching the preview. It is heart-warming to think of a whole town helping to create Christmas just for one little girl. Sam Elliott plays their neighbor farmer who helps out, and Sarah Paulson, Karen Allen, Elizabeth McLaughlin and Emily Alyn Lind also star in this not-to-be-missed movie.

The Bachelor Sneak Preview: Brad Womack Ready to Fall in Love, Get Insulted a Lot

Brad Womack is back for a second stint as The Bachelor, and as luck would have it, ABC has already given us three full minutes of hilarious nonsense to watch.

If this looks like the kind of montage ABC will typically play at the end of the season premiere, a la "this season on The Bachelor," that's because it sort of is.

They're really trying to get out ahead of The Bachelor spoilers this time. Good luck with that, ABC, but thanks for whetting our appetites for the Jan. 3 opener:

Brad Womack Returns as The Bachelor: Extended Preview

We've already seen him get bitch-slapped, but it was worth a second look, and the rest was great. Some thoughts on The Bachelor sneak preview above ...

  • We know the video quality sucks. Bear with us until we find a better copy.
  • Was that lightning and rain? God hates Brad more than Steve Johnson.
  • Brad Womack has a staggering number of awesome plaid shirts.
  • Expect to hear "Is he scared of commitment?!" about 465 times.
  • That and every insult in the book. These writers women show no mercy.
  • Brad has done A LOT of soul searching. So much so, he says it twice.

Michael Douglas: Feeling "Stronger," Preparing for New Movie

Michael Douglas is not cancer-free just yet.

But the Oscar-winning actor, who was diagnosed in August, tells People he feels "stronger everyday," as he continues to undergo treatment, recognizing: "It's a long road back."

Michael Douglas Image

Part of that road involves prepping for his next role. The 66-year old will take the title role in Liberace, a biopic directed by Steven Soderbergh.

"I've got a bunch of tapes of performances," he said of the real-life character. "I'm thinking; I'm a blank slate. Everything shows me he was a lovely man; I just want to reconfirm that."

The movie stars shooting this spring, which should give Douglas plenty more time to spend with his family. He spent Thanksgiving weekend with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and their kids at Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando.

Taylor Lautner Meets Famous Father of New Girlfriend

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord.
And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, Oh Lord... - Phil Collins, "In the Air Tonight"

It's unclear if Taylor Lautner experienced such excitement over this past weekend, but sources confirm to Marie Claire that the actor met the aforementioned British singer at some point over the last few days. For what reason?

He's the father of Taylor's new girlfriend, Lily Collins.

Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins

"[Phil is] pretty tough on the guys Lily introduces him to," an insider said. "Taylor was nervous about meeting him, but they got along well."

Lautner and his new gal pal met on the set of Abduction. Directed by John Singleton, this thriller revolves around Taylor's character, who sets out to uncover the truth after discovering a baby photo of himself listed on a missing persons website.

Bosnian Protesters Decry "Ignorant" Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has become the target of more criticism, this time regarding her feature directorial debut, not just her hatred of Thanksgiving.

A love story set during the Bosnian War, her film was cut short after rumors that it portrayed a relationship between a rapist and his victim.

The project has sparked protests and was called "ignorant" by a group of women who were victims of sexual violence during the 1990s war.

A Sexual Being

In a letter to the United Nations refugee agency, for which the movie star is a goodwill ambassador, the Women Victims of War criticized her sharply.

They say they are "deeply concerned about the movie."

"Angelina Jolie's ignorant attitude towards victims says enough about the scenario and gives us the right to continue having doubts," the letter read.

After rumors of the rapist story line surfaced in October, a group of Bosnian War rape victims pressured officials to withdraw Jolie's filming permit.

The rumors proved to be untrue.

The country's minister of culture read the script - about a Bosnian woman who falls in love with a Serb man - and Jolie's permit was reinstated.

However, Jolie earlier this month cut the shooting schedule from 10 days to three and decided to film some of the scenes in Hungary instead.

At the time, Jolie said she wanted to meet with the groups that complained to clear up any misunderstanding, but no meeting ever transpired.

"We have insisted to meet Angelina Jolie since we don't want to be wrongly presented in the world ... Our voices are worthwhile and we should have got much more respect," the WVW letter read. "Angelina has made a big mistake."

"We feel that she did not act like a real UNHCR ambassador and we believe that she has no more credibility to remain the ambassador."

Wait until that big Angelina Jolie drug video leaks!

Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2010: Would you let your teen son watch?

We joke about boys reading Playboy for the articles. Is letting them watch the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2010 for the musical performances any different? Watching the models strut, nay bounce, down the runway, I was struck by two thoughts: 1) I’m sure glad my son is in the girl-hating stage right now; and 2) if he was a teenager, would I let him watch the video below?

I’m leaning toward a big old no on the latter. There’s not much left to the imagination here, and while I know that kids today see a lot more skin than they did in my youth, when flannels and jeans were “in” rather than midriff-skimming tops, I’m surprised CBS can get this stuff past the censors. When did broadcast become Skinemax?

What do you think – would or did you let your teenage son watch this? (Trust me, this one is tame.)

Kim Kardashian Prayed For Smaller Breasts

Kim, you write in 'Kardashian Konfidential' how you had a hard time with your body as a young girl.
Kim: Kourtney used to torture me and think I was odd because I had big boobs. I was 11 when I got my period and I started developing. I would sit in the bathtub, take a washcloth, put it under really hot water and put it against my boobs and pray to God, please don't make my boobs grow any bigger. And Kourtney would be like, "Your boobs are so big and ugly!" She was so mean and then I would have to wear a bra and she would say, "Who wears a bra? That's so disgusting." It was so embarrassing.

Leslie Nielsen: Five Things About Late Actor Leslie Nielsen

leslie neilsen

Leslie Nielsen Passes Away

Leslie Nielsen has passed away at the age of 84 after complications from pneumonia. Actor Leslie Nielsen is best known for his roles in Airplane! and The Naked Gun series of movies. Leslie Nielsen was an incredible comedic actor and leaves behind his wife and two daughters.

In addition to his Airplane! and Naked Gun roles, here are five things you may not know about the late Leslie Nielsen:

1. Leslie Nielsen did not get his start in comedy. Before Airplane! and The Naked Gun, he was most well known for his roles in The Poseidon Adventure and Forbidden Planet.

2. Leslie Nielsen was Canadian, and was in the Royal Canadian Air Force. He was too young to be sent into World War II but trained as an aerial gunner.

3. Nielsen started his acting career on television making $75 to $100 per show.

4. Leslie Nielsen was married four times, and his two daughters, Maura and Thea, are from his second marriage to Alisande Ullman.

5. Nielsen was an avid supporter of The Better Hearing Institute, because he suffered from a hearing problem himself.

Nene Leakes Divorce: Are RHOA Star And Husband Still Together? What About Their Kids?

nene leakes divorce housewives of atlanta

Nene Leakes Divorce: Is the "Housewives of Atlanta" star getting divorced?

After watching last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” viewers are wondering if there’s a Nene Leakes divorce in the offing! It certainly seems that way based on what Leakes’ husband, Gregg, said to a radio host in Atlanta earlier this year. The conversation was recorded, unbeknownst to Gregg, and leaked out online, where it caused a huge stir over the summer. Gregg apologized to his wife and said the conversation had taken place shortly after a fight. But can these two stay together in the aftermath?

Gregg said some pretty shoddy things about his wife, claiming he spent $300,000 on her for the first season of “RHOA.” Some are saying that Gregg feels threatened now that Nene is the breadwinner in the household, thanks to her Bravo income. And on last night’s show she said that despite the fact that she comes from a family of divorce and does not want the same for her kids, “This is it between me and Gregg. We are over.”

She consulted a divorce lawyer, but neither of them have filed papers. They’ve both denied reports of a split while confirming that they are having marital difficulties. Do you think they’ll stay together?

Airplane Quotes: Remembering Leslie Nielsen

Airplane quotes are all around some of the funniest lines ever spoken on film, but this roundup is a fond way to remember Leslie Nielsen, who died yesterday following complications from pneumonia. Nielsen was a beloved father to two girls.

Leslie Nielsen played many roles throughout his career, but fans may best remember and love his role as Dr. Rumack in Airplane.

Here are Leslie Nielsen Airplane quotes (video below), starting with the classic “surely/Shirley” line:

Dr. Rumack: Can you fly this plane, and land it?
Ted Striker: Surely you can’t be serious.
Rumack: I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.

Rumack: You’d better tell the Captain we’ve got to land as soon as we can. This woman has to be gotten to a hospital.
Elaine Dickinson: A hospital? What is it?
Rumack: It’s a big building with patients, but that’s not important right now.

Rumack: Captain, how soon can you land?
Captain Oveur: I can’t tell.
Rumack: You can tell me. I’m a doctor.
Captain Oveur: No. I mean I’m just not sure.
Rumack: Well, can’t you take a guess?
Captain Oveur: Well, not for another two hours.
Rumack: You can’t take a guess for another two hours?

Rumack: What was it we had for dinner tonight?
Elaine Dickinson: Well, we had a choice of steak or fish.
Rumack: Yes, yes, I remember, I had lasagna.

[after the food poisoning epidemic strikes]
Captain Oveur: What is it, Doctor? What’s going on?
Rumack: I’m not sure. I haven’t seen anything like this since the Anita Bryant concert.

Rumack: I won’t deceive you, Mr. Striker. We’re running out of time.
Ted Striker: Surely there must be something you can do.
Rumack: I’m doing everything I can… and stop calling me Shirley!

Jack: What’s going on? We have a right to know the truth!
Rumack: [to the passengers] All right, I’m going to level with you all. But what’s most important now is that you remain calm. There is no reason to panic.
[Rumack's nose grows]
Rumack: Now, it is true that one of the crew members is ill… slightly ill.
[Rumack's nose grows again, like Pinocchio]
Rumack: But the other two pilots… they’re just fine. They’re at the controls flying the plane… free to pursue a life of religious fulfillment.

Remembering Blues Great BB King (Even Though He’s Still Alive)

bb king

BB King

The Internet played an awful joke on the family and friends of musician BB King this morning.  For a moment, the world mourned the loss of the blues great following a report that King had passed away from a stroke over the weekend.  The catch was that BB King is in fact still alive and planning for an upcoming concert tour to Australia.

The reigning king of blues has had a career that spans more than sixty years.  BB King and his guitar Lucille have been charming audiences across the globe for decades with their original take on the iconic blues classics.  With more than 50 albums to his credit, BB King has earned the title of the King of Blues. 

Since 2006, BB King has taken a step back from touring to concentrate on his family.  Over his touring career, King has played more than 15,000 concerts worldwide and he opted to slow down a tiny bit for his farewell tour.

The Internet seems intent on sending off BB King ahead of his time with repeated hoaxes reporting his untimely death.  The first hoax occurred in 2008 and the second this weekend.  Rather than mourn the King of Blues today, sit back and enjoy one of his classics….

Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann have not gone public with their engagement news yet, but a friend close to the couple confirms that there is a ring on her finger, and that they are very excited about getting married, though Kim isn’t wearing the rock yet.

The friend said, “Kim and Kroy are engaged, and only a few people know about it.They wanted to announce it in a national magazine, but Kim was so excited that she told a couple of close friends about it. Obviously, they are both really happy about both the baby and their engagement and cannot wait to start their new lives together.”

(Um…nice friend…outing their upcoming nuptials on the internet before they had a chance to announce the big news).

Spiderman the Musical on Broadway Will it Prevail or Fail?!?

spiderman movie Spiderman the Musical on Broadway Will it Prevail or Fail?!?

There is a whole lot riding on the success of the Spiderman musical that previewed for the first time on Sunday night. Not just the careers of the cast, the crew and the writers and the producers but there is a huge amount of money on the line. How much?

$65 Million dollars. Yes, they spent $65 million buck-a-roos on a superhero musical. The show had it’s first preview performance on Sunday at the Foxwoods Theatre. But some aren’t flocking to the theatre to see a epic soaring stageshow, some are anticipating participating in a epic flop. One man told a radio host, “I came to get a ticket because I’ve heard it’s such a disaster and this would be the first time they’ve ever run the show…I want to come and see it all go horrendously wrong.”

The huge price tag is believed to be the most ever spent on a Broadway who. But they have some pricey bells and whistles like complex stunts, special effects and music by Bono and the Edge of U2 fame.

But in the hands of Julie Taymor, who was behind the success of The Lion King, it could soar and be a huge hit. Or it could flop hard and be squashed like a spider under a brutal critics boot. The reviews will be coming in soon…what do you think, is Spiderman the musical silly enough of an idea to work?
