Killing white zombie = ok; Killing black zombie = racist pt2   
"First there are the obvious cultural connections: otherness and race blackness and monstrosity�as Public Enemy puts it the ""Fear of a Black Planet."" It�s Heart of Darkness meets PlayStation.Plenty of Resident Evil fanboys are standing up for the game by claiming that Africa is just a setting like any other. After all why shouldn�t zombies be black? On one level that's true.But looking again at the trailer I see a different message: it�s not just that these zombies are black but that the uninfected black villagers are zombie-like too. See all those spooky shots of the villagers before they get infected? It�s as if race itself were a disease. The white protagonist has to fight back or be infected.And that�s the other issue with setting a zombie movie in Africa. The whole idea of zombies is based on our fear of contamination. Get bitten by a zombie or just drop a tiny bit of undead blood in an open wound and you�re a goner. Soon you too will carry the disease of the living dead.Sounds familiar yet? Yup we could be talking about the HIV/AIDS crisis which has killed 15 million Africans and infected 25 million others on the continent. Especially since one of the few sentences spoken in the Resident Evil 5 trailer is �Casualties continue to mount over the long years I have struggled.�Or maybe we�re reminded of the ""one drop rule"" concocted by racists who feared miscegenation in the era of slavery and Jim Crow to create a definition of whiteness. Is that what�s lurking behind the premise of this game?"

Killing white zombie = ok; Killing black zombie = racist pt1   
"HOLY DUMBASS!!http://www.villagevoice.com/blogs/ru...es_in_afri.phpResident Evil 5: White Man Shoots Black Zombiesposted: 5:51 PM July 30 2007 by Michael ClancyBy Bonnie RubergFor nearly a decade the popular video game series Resident Evil has been giving us excuses to shoot the living hell out of pale pasty flesh-eating zombies. Machine guns in hand players have traditionally faced these nasty brain munchers in creepy old mansions or (not-so) abandoned rural towns. The zombies themselves have been Westerners�unlucky ex-Americans or Europeans with undead faces as white as the series is dark.Until now that is. Development team Capcom recently released a trailer for Resident Evil 5 the newest incarnation of the survival horror game. It doesn�t take place in backwoods U.S.A. though. It seems to take place in Africa.Though the full details of the storyline aren�t public yet the trailer makes a few things clear: you play as a white Chris Redfield the same all-American boy who has been taking down old-school leg-draggers for years. And the zombies? You guessed it: the local villagers. Which means that the hordes of undead you�ll be pumping round after round of ammo into�they�re all black.Resident Evil 5 is already raising questions about racism (White good guys vs. black bad guys? Is this some kind of race war?) or maybe questions about Capcom�s judgment (Who okayed this for production?). As one forum commenter wrote �Is it just me or is there something subtly racist about gunning down mobs of angry Africans?�But the point isn�t to smack one more label on mainstream video games (violent sexist racist). The point is that�for this white girl at least�the Resident Evil 5 trailer is strangely disturbing.Of course it�s possible that Capcom is just throwing around novel combinations willy-nilly here (�I don�t know how about a zombie game in Africa?�). When it comes to a piece of pop culture like Resident Evil though we have to consider the possibility that our interest in the supernatural is actually mirroring our anxieties about real-life problems. So in America � a country still tangling with the legacy of slavery racism and oppression�what does Resident Evil 5 give us to be anxious about?"

Internet Radio   
On March 2 2007 the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) which oversees sound recording royalties paid by Internet radio services increased Internet radio's royalty burden between 300 and 1200 percent and thereby jeopardized the industry�s future.��� At the request of the Recording Industry Association of America the CRB ignored the fact that Internet radio royalties were already double what satellite radio pays and multiplied the royalties even further.� The 2005 royalty rate was 7/100 of a penny per song streamed; the 2010 rate will be 19/100 of a penny per song streamed.� And for small webcasters that were able to calculate royalties as a percentage of revenue in 2005 � that option was quashed by the CRB so small webcasters� royalties will grow exponentially! Before this ruling was handed down the vast majority of webcasters were barely making ends meet as Internet radio advertising revenue is just beginning to develop.� Without a doubt most Internet radio services will go bankrupt and cease webcasting if this royalty rate is not reversed by the Congress and webcasters� demise will mean a great loss of creative and diverse radio.� Surviving webcasters will need sweetheart licenses that major record labels will be only too happy to offer so long as the webcaster permits the major label to control the programming and playlist.� Is that the Internet radio you care to hear? �As you know the wonderful diversity of Internet radio is enjoyed by tens of millions of Americans and provides promotional and royalty opportunities to independent labels and artists that are not available to them on broadcast radio.� What you may not know is that in just the last year Internet radio listening jumped dramatically from 45 million listeners per month to 72 million listeners each month.� Internet radio is already popular and it is already benefiting thousands of artists who are finding new fans online every day. Action must be taken to stop this faulty ruling from destroying the future of Internet radio that so many millions of listeners depend on each day.� Instead of relying on lawyers filing appeals in the CRB and the courts the SaveNetRadio Coalition has been formed to represent every webcaster every Net Radio listener and every artist who enjoys and benefits from this medium.� Please join our fight for the preservation of Internet radio.

Summer...   
Well its starting off with a bang we are having tempratures in the upper 90's for the past week with no stop in sight. I am liking it so far but im sure I will get sick of it here very soon. I know my grass is screaming for it to cool down soon or its gonna give up the fight.We had a weather incident yesterday that I had never heard of it called microbursts. To me it almost seems like a reverse tornado. The wind is pushed out from a central pillar of air...Dry MicroburstWhen rain falls below cloud base or is mixed with dry air it begins to evaporate and this evaporation process cools the air. The cool air descends and accelerates as it approaches the ground. When the cool air approaches the ground it spreads out in all directions and this divergence of the wind is the signature of the microburst.Dry microbursts produced by high based thunderstorms that generate little surface rainfall occur in environments characterized by a thermodynamic profile exhibiting an inverted-V at themal and moisture profile as viewed on a Skew-T log-P thermodynamic diagram. (Wakimoto 1985) developed a conceptual model (over the High Plains) of a dry microburst environment that comprised of three important variables: mid-level moisture a deep and dry adiabatic lapse rate in the sub-cloud layer and low surface relative humidity.The ones we had yesterday destroyed some 50+ year old trees they were pulled from the ground. There were also some buildings damaged.
