Cupid's Undie Run is this Saturday

MASON CITY, Iowa – Cupid’s Undie Run is taking place Saturday, February 10th in Mason City. The fun, 1 mile run, is a fundraising event for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, specifically Neurofibromatosis (NF). It is a condition that causes tumors to form in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Last year the event raised more than $3.5 million for the cause nationwide. For Loni Dirksen, this charity hits close to home as she is diagnosed with NF.  She appeared on Daybreak Wednesday morning to promote the fundraiser and says there are still 6 spots left as of that morning.

Forex technical analysis: EURUSD can't keep the momentum going

Yesterday's rise, sees a retracement lower.The EURUSD came off the highs yesterday into the close (closed at 1.1292 - watch this level today) and the Asia Pacific session saw the price go sideways. In the London morning session, the price had to go somewhere as the range was only about 30 pips.  It eventually settled on the downside. That fall stalled near the 1.1256 level (we broke above that level yesterday - it is the 61.8% of the move down from the August 2015 high - see chart below), and stalled near the 38.2% of the weeks move higher. Note on the 5-minute chart how the 100 bar MA on the 5 minute chart just held corrective move higher. That MA and the close from yesterday at 1.12918 will be levels I will be watching for bullish clues. Get above and the dollar will be looking weak again.  Stay below and perhaps the trend we are seeing today so far continues and we get below the 1.1241 level.  ...

Cizoo Drops The Beat So That You Can Send Music Messages To Your Friends

Meet Cizoo, a new iOS app that is all about making it easier to create music. Learning to play an instrument can be hard, but anyone can sing and rap. Cizoo lets you record tidbits of songs on top of a looping music background. When you open the app, it immediately fires up the camera so that you’re ready to create some content. It’s reminiscent of Snapchat’s approach as Snapchat was one of the first popular apps to start with content creation first. But the button at the bottom isn’t a record button, it lets you pick a song. The app currently has dozens of karaoke-like music loops from pop hits ranging from Drake to Manu Chao. They are ordered by categories, such as “drop a punchline” or “epic moment”. You can preview each song and then pick your favorite. After that, it’s your time to shine. When you press the record button, a countdown lets you warm up and you can then sing for a few seconds on top of the music. After previewing the result and if you’re happy with your message, you can save it to the camera roll or send it to your friends using iMessage or a third-party app, such as Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Here’s what Cizoo videos look like. Cizoo is currently a nifty little minimum viable product and I can see potential with this kind of app. Many apps have tried to mix music and messaging together, such as Mindie, but Cizoo is a bit different as it could appeal to creative teenagers who...  

New Hampshire Women Chose Bernie Sanders in a Landslide, Not Hillary Clinton

The win for Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire isn't only enormous in terms of momentum, it undermines the foundation of Hillary Clinton's campaign. NBC News reports 55% of female voters in New Hampshire chose Bernie Sanders, while 44% voted for Clinton. As potentially the first female president, Clinton still lost the women's vote to Sanders. The 74 year old's lead among a demographic vital to Clinton's campaign is highlighted in a Bustle article titled Bernie Sanders Wins Women's Vote In New Hampshire & Beats Hillary Clinton On The Gender Turf: Early reports about the voter breakdown in the New Hampshire Democratic primary may surprise some poll watchers: not only did Bernie Sanders win the New Hampshire Democratic primary, trouncing Hillary Clinton in a landslide... Sanders won 53 percent of the female vote compared to Clinton's 46 percent, according to exit poll analysis by ABC News. Among young women, Sanders' numbers were even higher: 69 percent of Democratic women under 45 backed him in the primary, a statistic which includes 82 percent of female primary voters under the age of 30... However, poor polling among younger voters, as well as the media firestorm ignited by highly controversial remarks by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and feminist activist Gloria Steinem made about women who opt not to vote for Clinton, have made many who assumed Clinton was a sure win among female Democrats second-guessing. While the New Hampshire win showed that Clinton wa...  

Walt Disney Stock Down Despite Record Quarterly Profit on Success of 'Star Wars'

Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) stock fell more than 3% during after-hours trade on Tuesday, as the giant media company reported its quarterly results. Though the company released strong numbers for its first quarter for the fiscal 2016, it failed to offset investor’s concern regarding a slowdown in Disney’s television business. According to the earnings result, operating income for its television segment of the media company, which includes broadcast and cable networks, tumbled 6% on year-over-year (YoY) basis to $1.4 billion. Revenue from this business was up 8% to $6.3 billion, as compared to the same period a year ago. This decline was due to higher programming costs and fall in subscriber rate at ESPN, which is included in its media networks unit. However, in the recent earnings call, The Walt Disney Company Chairman and Chief Executive, Robert A. Iger, stated hat there has been a slight increase in customers in the last couple of months. According to the CEO, Disney is in negotiations with the distributors regarding featuring of ESPN in more slimmed-down channel packages along with other offerings. ESPN is a part of Disk TV network Corp's Sling TV, and the recent subscriber losses were mainly because of ESPN's absence from other skinnier TV packages. Mr. Iger said: "This notion that either the expanded basic bundle is experiencing its demise, or that ESPN is cratering in any way from a subscriber perspective, is just ridiculous." He also added: "We fully expect...  

Climate Change May Delay Flights

The upper-level jet stream gives a slight tailwind boost to aircraft headed from the United States to Europe, while making the return trip a bit slower. But new research predicts that climate change will speed up these winds, forcing transatlantic aircraft to spend an extra 2,000 hours in the air each year, and adding millions of dollars to fuel costs. The study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, looked at the effects of doubling the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, which will occur within the next few decades unless emissions are cut quickly. The average jet-stream winds along the flight route between London’s Heathrow airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International airport are predicted to become 15 percent faster in winter, increasing from 77 to 89 km/hr (48 to 55 mph), with similar increases in the other seasons. 10 Signs Climate Change Is Already Happening As a result, London-bound flights will become twice as likely to take under 5h 20m, implying that record-breaking crossing times will occur with increasing frequency in future. On the other hand, New York-bound flights will become twice as likely to take over 7h 00m, suggesting that delayed arrivals will become increasingly common. Paul Williams, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Reading and author of the new study, explained that the jet stream is driven by temperature difference between equator and the pole, and by ...  

What the modern-day relaxation of border controls between TV and cinema means ...

Speak to many film professionals today and you will hear the same cry: Give me a series! It’s not only the security of a long-term contract. There is also the attractiveness of high-calibre writing and the relative liberty of working for an AMC or an HBO, a Netflix or an Amazon, compared to a movie studio. Directors such as Todd Haynes (who made Mildred Pierce for HBO during a seven-year hiatus from cinema that ended last year with Carol) and Steven Soderbergh (who has defected permanently to television and is currently in negotiations for a possible third round of his Cinemax series The Knick starring Clive Owen) both speak of the creative freedoms afforded them in the TV world. Soderbergh is currently lining up a new HBO show, Mosaic, which will star Sharon Stone and Garrett Hedlund. It’s been described as an interactive, “choose your own adventure” experience that allows viewers to follow different narrative paths, presumably in the manner of the once-popular children’s books: “You find a sword. If you pick it up and slay the dragon, turn to page 48. If you, like, can’t be bothered or whatever, turn to page 65.” The boundary between TV and film performers was once rigidly patrolled, with television the training ground for cinema; once an actor moved up to the major league, there would be ignominy in returning to the practice yard. It’s a truism to say this is no longer the case. The traffic of famili...
