Business Was Good In 2010

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

While analysts are still crunching numbers to figure out how good 2010 really was, the early reports are promising.

According to the government, sales jumped 6.6% from 2009 thanks to online transactions.

To put that in perspective, sales haven't surged like that since the internet boom which was almost 11 years ago.

Pretty impressive!

Lets hope it continues.

Kate Walsh Looks Great In Blue

What a difference a year makes.

After her glitzy glam look at the 2010 People's Choice Awards, Kate Walsh went with something a little more subtle in 2011.

The actress chose a dark blue David Meister cocktail dress and simple black heels.

Perfect choice for a 43 year old.

America Is Watching More TV Than Ever Before

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinuteBusiness BlitzGleeReality TV

america watches more tv in 2010 than ever before

Congratulations, America!

According to Nielsen, more Americans watched TV in 2010 than ever before.

Looks like, as a whole, we're watching 34 hours per person per week.

During 2010, we went crazy over Hawaii Five-O, Glee, and Fox News (yes, we watched way more Fox News than CNN or MSNBC).

Aside from all of that, we've also started watching "trash-into-treasure" reality shows, such as Pawn Stars, American Pickers, Auction Kings, Auction Hunters, AND Storage Wars.

Guess we'll see if we watch EVEN more TV in 2011 OR maybe we'll go outside a little more often if we can get the TV cable to reach outside.

How much TV do U watch per week? Less than the average? More?

Grizzly Bear Deaths Near Yellowstone On The Rise

Filed under: Sad SadBearGameHunting

Oh no! This is so sad!

Grizzly bear deaths near the Yellowstone region in Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho have risen to near record levels in 2010.

An estimated 75% of grizzle bears, which are protected animals, were killed or removed from the wild. Sources say that the deaths were blamed primarily on the grizzlies being pushed into inhabited areas where food is scarce, and where they become easily stalked by hunters.

In 2008, 79 Yellowstone grizzlies died or were removed, with only three of those deaths being natural.

"In general, if you were going to make a bet on whether a bear died because of people versus natural causes, it would be people," said Chuck Schwartz, a U.S. Geological Survey biologist who leads the multi-agency grizzly bear study team. "Eighty-five-plus percent of independent bears that die, die because of people," he added.

Hunting grizzly bears is still illegal, however at least 15 were killed this year by hunters.

This is terrible! We have to protect our wildlife!
