Obama toasts 'season of progress' after big wins : "I am persistent."

WASHINGTON – Buoyant in political victory, President Barack Obama on Wednesday wrapped up a long, rough year in Washington by rejoicing in a rare, bipartisan "season of progress" over tax cuts, national security and civil justice. Halfway through his term, he served notice to his skeptics: "I am persistent."
AP – President Barack Obama answers aquestion during a news conference on the White House complex, Wednesday, …

The president who strode on stage for a news conference cut a remarkably different figure than the Obama who, just seven weeks ago, held a similar event in which he somberly admitted he had taken a "shellacking" in the midterm elections and needed to re-evaluate. This time, Obama was about to jet off to a Hawaiian holiday vacation knowing he had secured the kind of legislative wins that rarely come so bundled as they just did, particularly in a postelection lawmaking session.

Obama spoke on the same day that he found enough allies in both parties to get Senate ratification of a nuclear arms treaty with Russia, a vote watched around the world as a test of international security and presidential clout. He also signed landmark legislation to allow gays to serve openly in the military, calling himself overwhelmed by the enormity of the moment.

And that was on top of other achievements, including a hard-fought deal to extend tax cuts and unemployment insurance even as it piled on more debt, a broad food security bill, a trade deal with South Korea and declarations of progress in the widening war in Afghanistan.

"If there's any lesson to draw from these past few weeks, it's that we are not doomed to endless gridlock," Obama said. "We've shown in the wake of the November elections that we have the capacity not only to make progress, but to make progress together."

That spirit may be fleeting.

Obama was able to get the votes he needed in a lame-duck session in which his party still controlled the House and Senate, retiring or ousted members could act knowing they would no longer face voters, and the potential of a politically devastating tax hike on Jan. 1 forced lawmakers into action. None of those factors will be in play come January when Republicans take control of the House and have a greater voice in the Senate as well.

To a nation long tired of political gamesmanship, Obama used the moment to try to put himself above it — and to challenge both parties to join him. He said voters wanted this "season of progress," promising to stick with that mission and hoping "my Democratic and Republican friends will do the same."

He also did not get all he wanted, losing some fights and swallowing a two-year extension of tax cuts for wealthier people as part of the tax deal.

Obama underscored his agenda ahead, much of it amounting to unfinished promises: deficit reduction, energy innovation, immigration reform, the closing of the Guantanamo Bay prison, education and research investments, and the biggest item of all: finding ways to create more jobs for millions of hurting Americans.

In the course of questioning, Obama revealed that his position on gay marriage is "constantly evolving." He has opposed such marriages and supported instead civil unions for gay and lesbian couples. The president said such civil unions are his baseline — at this point, as he put it.

"This is something that we're going to continue to debate, and I personally am going to continue to wrestle with going forward," he said.

The slow progress on the economy continues to pull down the spirits of the country and threaten to overshadow many of Obama's other successes. Unemployment was measured at 9.8 percent in November, down only slightly from its double-digit high in 2009. Obama sought to broaden the burden of responsibility to Republicans for a faster economic rebound, saying "people are going to be paying attention to what they're doing as well as what I'm doing."

Obama sought to give credit to Congress, and chiefly the Democrats who have been running it, for what he called the most successful post-election period in decades. But he also sought to assert his own role and power, just weeks after his relevancy had been called into question.

"One thing I hope people have seen during this lame duck: I am persistent," Obama said. "If I believe in something strongly, I stay on it."

He saved his most emotional appeal for committing anew to the DREAM Act, a measure which would offer a path to legal status for young illegal immigrants who enroll in college or join the military. It died in Congress in the waning days of the session, overwhelmed by Republican opposition. Obama said those young people live in fear of deportation.

"It is heartbreaking," he said. "That can't be who we are."

Obama also promised that deficit reduction would be a major issue in 2011. The midterm elections were seen in part as a reflection of how many Americans are sick of Washington's spending ways, and promises over the years to rein in deficit spending have fallen short of reality when the choices get tough.

"I guarantee you, as soon as the new Congress is sworn in, we're going to have to have a conversation about, how do we start balancing our budget or at least getting to a point that's sustainable when it comes to our deficit and our debt?" he said.

Obama was flying to Hawaii later in the day, joining his wife and the couple's two children for a year-end holiday. When he returns, it will be a few days before a new Congress convenes, with a House controlled by Republicans and a Senate with a shrunken Democratic majority.

Lunar eclipse December 2010

Lunar eclipse  NASA thesis

Toronto. And, unlike meteor showers and the northern lights, you don't need to leave the city to see it. So long as the sky is clear, the phenomenon will be widely visible.

What's perhaps even more noteworthy about this event is that it takes place on the winter solstice -- though I can't imagine this'll mean a whole lot to those not immersed in New Age philosophy (weird link!). But regardless of the date -- and the fact that it might be a tad chilly outside -- I think full lunar eclipses are pretty damn cool, particularly when the moon takes on that odd red glow.

Here's Nasa with the details: "The eclipse begins on Tuesday morning, Dec. 21st, at 1:33 am EST (Monday, A full lunar eclipse will take place in the early hours of December 21 in the night skies over Dec. 20th, at 10:33 pm PST). At that time, Earth's shadow will appear as a dark-red bite at the edge of the lunar disk. It takes about an hour for the "bite" to expand and swallow the entire Moon. Totality commences at 02:41 am EST (11:41 pm PST) and lasts for 72 minutes."

That's not exactly early for those who generally hit the hay while the night is still young, but given that the last lunar eclipse was in 2008 and the next won't happen until 2014, it might be worth staying up for. And photographers, remember to get out your tripod and the longest lens you have -- otherwise the moon will just be a blurry red speck amidst a black background.



Troy University at Phenix City will reason the tumble derivation rite on Saturday, Dec eighteen at 2 p.m. at the Columbus Civic Center.

Larry DiChiara, the superintendent of the Phenix City School System, will broach the keynote debate to the 250 students graduating this semester.

Julianne Hough’s “Is That So Wrong”

Julianne Hough’s “Is That So Wrong”

Julianne Hough’s new music video for her single “Is That So Wrong,” has been banned from the CMT lineup, and you can’t find it on YouTube either. Why it’s been banned is under debate however; Babble reports that CMT says it’s due to a contract issue, and Hough says it’s because it’s too sexy. We have a video below that shows the making of the her music video, and toward the end you see the controversial scene where she strips off her shirt, revealing her bra, and does some nice gymnastics on the bed.

To start with, my jaw dropped at that twirl she did while taking off her shirt. Holy moly, that was an amazing dance move! I can’t even imagine how hard it was to master that move! As for the rest of it…I don’t see anything too racy for cable television, not even the country music channel! What do you think?

Music review: Julianne Hough at "Acoustic Christmas Concert"

Known for two victories on ABC's hugely popular "Dancing With the Stars," for landing the lead in the upcoming "Footloose" remake and for her May-December romance with Ryan Seacrest, 22-year-old Julianne Hough seems to treat her fledgling country music career as just an entertaining gig on the side.

The best part? Any possible controversy is just a cute anecdote to share, as she did during the "Acoustic Christmas Concert" presented by Baltimore's WPOC radio Friday night.

"This next song - funny story," she said by way of introducing her new single, "Is That So Wrong," in the middle of her 30-minute set at Cancun Cantina in Hanover. "I shot a music video for it . . . and [Country Music Television] kind of banned it."

Giggling, Hough shook her head and showed off her megawatt smile to the crowd of about 100 packed on the dance floor. "Apparently I was taking off too many clothes as I was dancing across my bedroom." She paused to let this sink in. "But I don't know - I kind of liked it."

Launching into the song, Hough's infectious, sugary voice (powerful as long as she doesn't try to hit any super-high notes) made a good case for her attempt to reboot her singing career. After some success with her debut self-titled album in 2008, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard country charts, and a holiday album soon after, there has been pretty much - literally - radio silence.

Except, of course, she's in movies now, and there's that tabloidtastic relationship with Seacrest.

"A lot of people have seen my relationships very publicly lately," Hough cooed to the crowd, letting the concept of "Ryan Seacrest" hang in the air. Then she turned serious. "But I don't think people know who I really am," she declared before belting out the slow song "Wildfire."

Still a dancer at heart, Hough shimmied her way through the set, which included "My Hallelujah Song," "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and Sarah Buxton's "Love Is a Trip." She took breaks from the microphone to wriggle around and dance next to her lone backup guitar player. Although billed as the main event, Hough got roughly the same amount of stage time as the two opening acts, Ashley Gearing and Craig Campbell. But there may have been a reason for it - even Hough admitted that her music library isn't extensive.

"But I figured I should sing something you know," she said before performing her most popular tune (bouncy, ultra-catchy "That Song in My Head") for those in the audience, who were doing their best to listen attentively, despite extremely loud chatter from other bar patrons.

Feeling the need to plug something, Hough announced that an upcoming album is in the works but had no idea when it would arrive - she tossed out the guess of "maybe sometime next year."

Person Of The Year 2010

Person of the year2010

Mark Zuckerberg

On the afternoon of Nov. 16, 2010, Mark Zuckerberg was leading a meeting in the Aquarium, one of Facebook's conference rooms, so named because it's in the middle of a huge work space and has glass walls on three sides so everybody can see in. Conference rooms are a big deal at Facebook because they're the only places anybody has any privacy at all, even the bare minimum of privacy the Aquarium gets you. Otherwise the space is open plan: no cubicles, no offices, no walls, just a rolling tundra of office furniture. Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook's COO, who used to be Lawrence Summers' chief of staff at the Treasury Department, doesn't have an office. Zuckerberg, Facebook's CEO and co-founder and presiding visionary, doesn't have an office.

The team was going over the launch of Facebook's revamped Messages service, which had happened the day before and gone off without a hitch or rather without more than the usual number of hitches. Zuckerberg kept the meeting on track, pushing briskly through his points — no notes or whiteboard, just talking with his hands — but the tone was relaxed. Much has been made of Zuckerberg's legendarily awkward social manner, but in a room like this, he's the Silicon Valley equivalent of George Plimpton. He bantered with Andrew "Boz" Bosworth, a director of engineering who ran the project. (Boz was Zuckerberg's instructor in a course on artificial intelligence when they were at Harvard. He says his future boss didn't do very well. Though, in fairness, Zuckerberg did invent Facebook that semester.) Apart from a journalist sitting in the corner, no one in the room looked over 30, and apart from the journalist's public relations escort, it was boys only.

The door opened, and a distinguished-looking gray-haired man burst in — it's the only way to describe his entrance — trailed by a couple of deputies. He was both the oldest person in the room by 20 years and the only one wearing a suit. He was in the building, he explained with the delighted air of a man about to secure ironclad bragging rights forever, and he just had to stop in and introduce himself to Zuckerberg: Robert Mueller, director of the FBI, pleased to meet you.

They shook hands and chatted about nothing for a couple of minutes, and then Mueller left. There was a giddy silence while everybody just looked at one another as if to say, What the hell just happened?

It's a fair question. Almost seven years ago, in February 2004, when Zuckerberg was a 19-year-old sophomore at Harvard, he started a Web service from his dorm. It was called, and it was billed as "an online directory that connects people through social networks at colleges." This year, Facebook — now minus the the — added its 550 millionth member. One out of every dozen people on the planet has a Facebook account. They speak 75 languages and collectively lavish more than 700 billion minutes on Facebook every month. Last month the site accounted for 1 out of 4 American page views. Its membership is currently growing at a rate of about 700,000 people a day.

What just happened? In less than seven years, Zuckerberg wired together a twelfth of humanity into a single network, thereby creating a social entity almost twice as large as the U.S. If Facebook were a country it would be the third largest, behind only China and India. It started out as a lark, a diversion, but it has turned into something real, something that has changed the way human beings relate to one another on a species-wide scale. We are now running our social lives through a for-profit network that, on paper at least, has made Zuckerberg a billionaire six times over.

Facebook has merged with the social fabric of American life, and not just American but human life: nearly half of all Americans have a Facebook account, but 70% of Facebook users live outside the U.S. It's a permanent fact of our global social reality. We have entered the Facebook age, and Mark Zuckerberg is the man who brought us here. (See pictures of Facebook's overseas offices.)

Zuckerberg is part of the last generation of human beings who will remember life before the Internet, though only just. He was born in 1984 and grew up in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., the son of a dentist — Painless Dr. Z's slogan was, and is, "We cater to cowards." Mark has three sisters, the eldest of whom, Randi, is now Facebook's head of consumer marketing and social-good initiatives. It was a supportive household that produced confident children. The young Mark was "strong-willed and relentless," according to his father Ed. "For some kids, their questions could be answered with a simple yes or no," he says. "For Mark, if he asked for something, yes by itself would work, but no required much more. If you were going to say no to him, you had better be prepared with a strong argument backed by facts, experiences, logic, reasons. We envisioned him becoming a lawyer one day, with a near 100% success rate of convincing juries."

Fate of Niger-s president uncertain after coup attempt

 Niamey (Niger), Feb 19, The fate of Nigerien President Mamadou Tandja remained unclear Thursday after the presidential palace in the capital Niamey came under attack in a coup attempt.

Mamadou Tandja

President Mamadou Tandja last year rode roughshod over parliament and the constitutional court to extend his rule and allow himself a chance at another term, raising tensions in the uranium-rich nation.

Heavy gunfire was reported around the presidential palace, which then tailed off to sporadic shooting mid-afternoon. Smoke was seen rising from the palace.

The Niger embassy in London issued a statement saying a coup attempt had taken place but that Tandja was unharmed.

“Reports reaching us suggest that both the president and the cabinet ministers who were with him at the time are safe and well,” the embassy said.

However, a government source told the BBC that Tandja and his cabinet had been captured by soldiers during a cabinet meeting.

West African regional group ECOWAS suspended Niger after Tandja extended his term, while the European Union and the United States also imposed sanctions.

ECOWAS chairman, Nigeria’s acting President Goodluck Jonathan, said in a statement the group condemned “all acts of ascension to power and remaining in power by unconstitutional means.”

The bloc has been mediating talks between the opposition and the government, but has made little headway.

Several international companies have uranium mining operations in the huge West African nation.

Tandja argued that he had to extend his term to oversee mining and energy deals he claimed would pull the former French colony out of poverty.

Figgy Pudding is a Christmas Tradition

Figgy pudding is an old Christmas tradition, but is not exactly that popular today. Dating back to 16th century England, it’s an ancestor of a medieval spiced porridge known as Frumenty. Today, the term figgy pudding is known mainly because of a popular Christmas carol, “We Wish you a Merry Christmas.” It was used as a plot point in tonight’s episode of Brothers and Sisters.

A British-style pudding, or dessert, figgy pudding is a mixture of finely chopped apples, dry figs and other dried fruits, nuts, which is then combined with bread crumbs, eggs and seasonings and baked, steamed in the oven, or boiled. It’s a little bit like fruitcake, so it’s definitely an acquired taste.

Even in the UK, it’s a tradition that’s starting to die out. A magazine survey found that 30 percent of respondents did not like it.

It’s common to flame figgy pudding with cognac or brandy before serving it with whipped cream, ice cream or applesauce.

Curzon Hall - House of Science Faculties

The University of Dhaka was established in 1921 under the Dacca University Act 1920 of the Indian Legislative Council, it is modelled after British universities. Academic activities started on July 1, 1921 with 3 faculties, 12 teaching departments, 60 teachers, 847 students and 3 residential halls.

It is believed that a combination of political, social and economic compulsions persuaded the government of India to establish a University at Dhaka 'as a splendid imperial compensation' to Muslims for the annulment of the partition of Bengal. The first vice-chancellor of the university, Dr., later Sir, Philip Joseph Hartog, a former academic registrar of the University of London for 17 years and a member of the University of Calcutta Commission, described this phenomenon as the 'political origin' of the institution.

The Partition of Bengal in 1905 provided the Muslim majority community of East Bengal and Assam with a sphere of influence of their own and raised new hopes for the development of the region and advancement of its people. But its annulment, barely six years later due to stiff opposition from the powerful Hindu leadership, was viewed by Muslims as 'a grievous wrong'.

A deputation of high ranking Muslim leaders, including Sir Nawab Khwaja Salimullah, Khan Bahadur Chowdhury Kazimuddin Ahmed Siddiky[1], Nawab Syed Nawab Ali Choudhury and A. K. Fazlul Huq, met Lord Hardinge, the then Viceroy of India, on January 31, 1912 and expressed their fears that the annulment would retard the educational progress of their community. As compensation for the annulment of the Partition, as well as protest against the general antipathy of Calcutta University towards Muslims, the deputation made a vigorous demand for a university at Dhaka. In response, Lord Hardinge acknowledged that education was the true salvation of Muslims and that the government would recommend the constitution of such a university to the Secretary of State. This was confirmed in an official communiqué on February 2, 1912.

Initially, the university under the British administration worked hard to build up an outstanding record of academic achievement, earning for itself the reputation for being the 'Oxford of the East'. The university contributed to the emergence of a generation of leaders who distinguished themselves in different occupations in East Bengal. Until the Partition of India in 1947, it maintained its unique character of being one of the few residential institutions of higher learning in Asia. In 1947, it assumed academic authority over all educational institutions above the secondary level falling within East Bengal. In the process, it became a teaching-cum-affiliating institution. This transformation, coupled with its unprecedented growth in the years that followed, put strains beyond reckoning on its human as well as material resources.[citation needed]

A new phase began in the history of the University with the emergence of the People's Republic of Bangladesh in 1971. This has been a phase of development, expansion and consolidation of earlier gains. The University assumed a central role in the academic pursuits of the region including this new nation.

International ranking

In 2008, the University of Dhaka has made into the list of "Top World Universities" in the ranking carried out by apparently world’s most prominent ranking agency Times Higher Education and Quacquarelli Symonds (THE–QS), UK . Out of over 30,000 universities around the world, DU was placed as 528. In Engineering & IT the university positioned 300th where in Life Sciences & Biomedicine the university ranked 284th. However, the university ranked better in 2007 (within top 500) and 2006 (365th). The subject area wise ranking in 2007 was: 336th in Arts & Humanities, 256th in Natural Sciences, 256th in Engineering & IT, 297th in Social Sciences and 251st in Life Sciences & Biomedicine. University of Dhaka is the only university from Bangladesh made position in the world's top universities list.

    Asian level ranking

In the best Asian (and Australian) universities ranking, AsiaWeek ranked the University of Dhaka 37th in 1999[12] and 64th (overall and multi-disciplinary category) out of 77 ranked universities in 2000 [4]. This is the only university in Bangladesh made position within the Asia's best universities. In 2000, the university got a comparatively higher rank in student selectivity (23rd) while got lower ranking in academic reputation (74th), faculty resources (59th), research (65th) and financial resources (74) categories [13].

    Ranking based on the website content and visibility

The university's website based ranking is below standard. Although the university positioned 2nd within Bangladesh [14] and 45th within South Asia, it barely made position in top 7000 (6388nd) in the January 2009 ranking by Webometrics in their World Universities Ranking [15] based on web visibility of electronic publication, scientific results and international activities.[16]. Apparently the poor internet infrastructure in Bangladesh can be the key reason of the large difference between the rank of the university in "university ranking" and "web performance based university ranking".

In 2009, 4 International Colleges & Universities [17] ranked the university as the most popular university in Bangladesh in their 'Colleges and Universities By 2009 Web Popularity Ranking' list.
