North Korea’s reported failed rocket launch might’ve cost them big

  • 90 seconds from launch until utter failure — they’re 0 for 3 source
  • failure With much fanfare and tons of controversy surrounding the launch, North Korea’s rocket launch (intended to honor Kim Il-sung) reportedly failed Friday morning local time, with the rocket getting off the ground, falling apart, and going into the sea.
  • cost The Obama administration says that even though the rocket launch didn’t succeed, they would likely still continue with plans to suspend its food aid program with the country — a deal which at the time seemed to suggest easing relations between the countries. source

Just purchased remaining spots for #allamericanmuslim for next week. The show is now sold out! keep your money @lowes and we will keep ours.
Hip hop mogul Russell Simmons • Revealing (via Twitter) that he had purchased the spaces that Lowe’s had vacated when they backed down to pressure over their advertising on the TLC reality program “All-American Muslim.” According to his rep, he bought two spots, but hasn’t decided what to put in them yet. Russell, you’re a badass. Meanwhile, Lowe’s is defending its decision, claiming it was one of “dozens” of companies that had pulled advertising support from the show — a claim difficult to back up, especially considering that TLC is claiming that the show is doing well advertiser-wise. The home improvement chain bent to pressure from an obscure group called the Florida Family Association in removing their ads from the program. source (viafollow)

Thought of the day: They have more fun raggin’ on world leaders on the other side of the pond. As for the clip itself, Cameron makes a point to emphasize that, Andy Coulson, the former “News of the World" editor who worked for him, didn’t do any wrong on his watch. "Of course I regret," he said, "and I am extremely sorry, about the furor it has caused." Well, duh. What else is he going to say? "Oh yeah! Andy was a great hire! He made my office look smashing! We got such good publicity from hiring that Andy Coulson! He was the sugar in my office’s tea!" source
