Yellow Light Signal For The Shoppers On Black Friday

Consumer electronics have long been among the most popular holiday gifts, with fierce competition among shoppers for day after Thanksgiving deals on flat screen TVs and laptop computers. This year, everyone expects the economic crisis to dampen the appetite for gadgets. But how much? Compared to buying a car or a house, electronics are cheap, and those who scrimp on big purchases may still treat themselves or their children to an iPod. Circuit City filed for bankruptcy protection earlier in the month, which may have steered some prospective buyers to rivals.

At Best Buy, one of the "doorbuster" deals for early birds was for a 50 inch flat panel TV from Panasonic Corp. for $900. The manufacturer slashed its annual profit forecast by 90 percent on Friday, blaming a strong yen, sluggish sales and heavy discounting. Best Buy was also selling a 32 inch flat panel TV, the most popular size, for $400. Analysts at NPD Group noted that looking over a few decades, the average price for a TV in the U.S. has been just over $300, and flat panels could reach that level this holiday season, finally cementing them as the mainstream replacement for the cathode-ray tube. Manufacturers have increased their production capacity for flat panels this year, just as consumer spending is tanking, which should lead to further price cuts as the season goes on. TV manufacturers have one reason to be hopeful, sales of new TVs may be bolstered by the impending shutdown of the analog broadcasting network in February, which means that older TVs that use regular antennas will need to be replaced or use a box that converts the signal.

More generally, the decline in gas prices may be raising consumers' willingness to spend up from the absolute bottom!

Vatican Media Praised The Beatles' Musical Legacy

Vatican media are praising the Beatles' musical legacy and sounding philosophical about John Lennon's boast that the British band was more popular than Jesus. Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano recalls that Lennon's comment outraged many when he made it in 1966. But it says in its Saturday edition that the remark can be written off now as the bragging of a young man wrestling with unexpected success. The newspaper as well as Vatican Radio last week noted the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' "White Album." It said the album demonstrated how creative the Beatles were, compared with what it called the "standardized, stereotypical" songs being produced today.

The Breach Of Contract Lawsuit Was Filed Against Prince

A perfume company is claiming Prince and his music publisher failed to honor a contract to help market a fragrance named for the album "3121."

No More Frown Lines Between The Brows

Lately Botox has been used in conjunction with fillers (Restylane, Captique, etc) in order to enhance their effectiveness and prolong the duration thereof. Botox has also been used in conjunction with Laser resurfacing for the same reasons. The best candidates are patients between the ages of 18 and 65 years old. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those particular muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out and the frown lines begin to fade. Botox Chicago have treated numerous patients with Botox Cosmetic as well as with Botox for Hyperhidrosis.

Say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles without risky cosmetic surgery!

The Season Of Beyonce Has Begun

With a new album and two movies on the horizon, it appears the Season of Beyonce has begun. Then again, one could argue that it's always Beyonce season. Two years ago, it was all about the release of her second CD, "B'Day" and her starring role in the movie "Dreamgirls." Last year, her "Irreplaceable" was up for a top Grammy and she was on a world tour. And this year, besides a high-profile Grammy performance with Tina Turner, her hush-hush marriage to Jay-Z and appearances on hit remixes with Justin Timberlake and Usher generated headlines.

Though it may have been hard to tell, she actually did take a yearlong hiatus from recording music!

Rihanna Has Canceled A Concert

Rihanna has canceled a concert scheduled Friday in Indonesia over security concerns. Dive Purnomo, a spokeswoman for the event organizer, Rihanna had been scheduled to perform before a sold-out crowd of 6,000 in the capital, Jakarta. But she changed her mind while in Australia, one of several countries that issued a travel advisory to citizens in Indonesia after the weekend executions of three Islamic militants convicted in the 2002 Bali bombings. The men called on followers to carry out revenge attacks if their deaths by firing squad went ahead. Purnomo, of Show Master Live, said she hoped the "Umbrella" singer would come to Jakarta in January.

Roman Catholic Bishop Would Accept No Compromise On Abortion Policy

The nation's Roman Catholic bishops vowed Tuesday to forcefully confront the Obama administration over its support for abortion rights, saying the church and religious freedom could be under attack in the new presidential administration. In an impassioned discussion on Catholics in public life, several bishops said they would accept no compromise on abortion policy. Many condemned Catholics who had argued it was morally acceptable to back President-elect Obama because he pledged to reduce abortion rates. And several prelates promised to call out Catholic policy makers on their failures to follow church teaching. Bishop Joseph Martino of Scranton, Pa., said he planned to counter Vice President-elect Biden, a Catholic, Scranton native who supports abortion rights. Chicago Cardinal Francis George, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, is preparing a statement during the bishops' fall meeting that will press Obama on abortion.

Along with their theological opposition to the procedure, church leaders say they worry that any expansion in abortion rights could require Catholic hospitals to perform abortions or face legal sanctions. Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Chicago said the hospitals would close rather than comply. During the campaign, many prelates had spoken out on abortion more boldly than they had in 2004, telling Catholic politicians and voters that the issue should be the most important consideration in setting policy and deciding which candidate to back. Yet, according to exit polls, 54 percent of Catholics chose Obama, who is Protestant. The new bishops' statement is meant to drive home the point in a way that cannot be misconstrued.

Circuit City Filed Under Chapter 11 Of The Bankruptcy Code

Circuit City Stores Inc., the nation's second-biggest electronics retailer, filed for bankruptcy protection on Monday but plans to stay open for business as the busy holiday shopping season approaches. It filed under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy code, which will allow it to hold off creditors and continue operations while it develops a reorganization plan. The Richmond, VA based company has been struggling as nervous consumers spend less and credit has become tighter, and the retail industry overall is facing what's expected to be the weakest holiday season in decades.

Circuit City also said it would cut 700 more jobs, after announcing a week ago that it would close 20 percent of its stores and lay off thousands of workers. Circuit City, which has had only one profitable quarter in the past year, has faced significant declines in traffic and heightened competition from rival Best Buy Co. and others. It said it decided to file for bankruptcy protection because it was facing pressure from vendors who threatened to withhold products during the holiday season.

A Cute Pup In The White House

Among the offices Barack Obama has yet to fill, one has a special importance to his family: first dog. At his first postelection news conference on Friday, the president-elect called choosing a dog a "major issue" in the Obama household and a hot topic on his Web site. Add to that the strain of the inevitable attention that comes to a cute pup in the White House. On Thursday, President Bush's normally docile Scottish terrier Barney bit a Reuters reporter on the right index finger.

Angry Protesters About California's Ban On Gay Marriage

Thousands of protesters are angry about California's ban on gay marriage and so are the stars. Many celebrities grieved the passing of Proposition 8 in California this week. Some such as Wanda Sykes, Rose McGowen and Lance Bass attended a Wednesday protest criticizing the state's gay marriage ban. Others like Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, Samantha Ronson and Melissa Etheridge vented their frustrations online, on TV, and onstage. Blocks away from the Thursday rally of more than 2,000 gay rights advocates outside the gates of a Mormon temple, several stars including James Cromwell, Patricia Clarkson, Anjelica Huston and Sean Penn. They supported the protesters while walking the red carpet at the BAFTA L.A. Brittania Awards at Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel.

Other celebs used time in the spotlight to decry the decision. Madonna took a moment during her concert at Dodger Stadium to declare to the audience that she was sad "because African-Americans are equal finally, but gay marriage is not." Former teen queen Christina Aguilera also spoke out against the ban.

Sounds Of The Christmas Season

It's hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner! Christmas is an annual holiday celebrated on December 25 that marks and honors the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. The Nativity of Jesus refers to the Christian belief that Messiah was born to the Virgin Mary. Modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, church celebrations, and the display of various decorations including the Christmas tree, lights,mistletoe, nativity scenes and holly. Santa Claus, also referred to as Father Christmas, is a popular mythological figure often associated with bringing gifts at Christmas. Santa is generally believed to be the result of a syncretization between St. Nicholas of Myra and elements from pagan Nordic and Christian mythology, and his modern appearance is believed to have originated in 19th century media.

Christmas is celebrated throughout the Christian population worldwide, but is also celebrated by many non-Christians as a secular, cultural festival. A religious and a Joyous time when family and friends gather and good children receive gifts delivered by Santa Claus and placed under their Christmas Tree on Christmas eve!

The canceled stops, originally scheduled Sept. 29 to Oct. 13, include: Montreal; Boston; Philadelphia; Greensboro, N.C.; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Uncasville, Conn.; and Syracuse, N.Y.

Obama Delivered His Victory

Congratulations!!! Looking forward for the stability of the economy crisis and the brighter future of the Americans. Wishing for the World Piece and live life to the fullest. God Bless America!!!

Barack Obama swept to victory as the nation's first black president Tuesday night in an electoral college landslide that overcame racial barriers as old as America itself. "Change has come," he told a jubilant hometown Chicago crowd.

After eight years of Republican rule, Barack Obama turned Wednesday to the task of building a Democratic administration to lead the country out of war and into the financial recovery that he promised. Obama planned to spend the rest of the week at home in Chicago, turning in earnest to reviewing the hiring decisions he'll have to make in the next two-and-a-half months. Campaign advisers have already presented him with names to review for key positions, but they said he wasn't focused on filling the jobs before winning the election. A top priority, the advisers said, would be picking a White House chief of staff to help manage the selections to come. Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel appeared headed for the job, said Democrats who spoke on condition of anonymity before the announcement, expected as early as Wednesday. Obama also faces intensive national security briefings that will prepare him to take over as commander in chief.
