Herriman Fire Emergency Updates and Evacuation

Wildfire spread over Herriman Utah just near Camp Williams. There was a regular training for machine gun handling exercises before the fire started and investigators are speculating that the big fire came from an ignited dry bush by bullets.

The residents of Salt Lakecounty are keen on not using cell phones much if it is not an emergency as they will need the phone lines uncongested for emergency calls.

The fire on Herriman is still uncontrolled but fire fighters quickly reported and determined to contain the fire asap.

Wind speed also maters as 50mph winds fanned flames to spread fast. It is chaos for now as 1,400 homes have been evacuated for safety. Heriman High School is the evacuation center. Many people are already injured and burned but everyone is acting quickly as they can.

Google Today: The Google Logo Video on Google Balls

Google Today: The Google Logo Video on Google Balls – Our fellow correspondent, Jim wrote earlier about the astonishing Google Logo featuring Google balls on Google today, September 7, 2010. The funny thing is that not everyone have seen the featured Google Doodle. This made us wondering why does it seem that it seen selectively.

Some said that perhaps some of the browsers that browsed Google and try to see the Google balls on Google Doodle were not equipped with HTML5, but what is HTML5?

According to our reliable online source, Wikipedia

“HTML5 is currently under development as the next major revision of the HTML standard. Like its immediate predecessors, HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1, HTML5 is a standard for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. The new standard incorporates features like video playback and drag-and-drop that have been previously dependent on third-party browser plug-ins such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Google Gears.”

It might seem that this feature of the Google Doodle might be a test of the browser capabilities of HTML5 and Google might be one of the major companies that is supporting the development of HTML5.

So far we have received positive comments from our readers based on their reactions to the article, “Google Logo September 7 2010: New Google Doodle HTML5 Balls

We also have scouted a YouTube video featuring the Google Ball which was uploaded earlier. For those who have not seen what we are talking about regarding the Google balls on Google today check this Google Doodle video.


Avatar Sequel Would Be 6.8 Miles Underwater

Who among us here wasn’t able to watch the ambitious film Avatar? I guess no one, if ever there was, then that person might be living in a place where cinemas and internet don’t exist. The most successful film so far which has raked nearly two billion dollars at the box office. The film was truly amazing and it just rightful to say that Cameron was able to create a whole new fantasy world.

A lot has been waiting for the sequel of the film. If not as great as the first, it would be greater for sure. Now here’s a slight hint of its plot. Cameron is planning to have the sequel 6.8 miles underwater and aims to present more on the seas of Pandora, the fantasy place of Avatar. If he would be able to do it, he would at the same time win a $10 million X-Prize. This prize was last given to the first team who managed to privately fund a manned spacecraft and launch it out of Earth’s atmosphere. Now it’s going to the first private crew to make two manned dives to the deepest surveyed point in all of Earth’s oceans, the Challenger Deep.

No wonder Cameron could achieve a great sequel. Such brilliant mind will not settle for something mediocre in the world of films. The world now awaits for the great sequel.

What is Venus Raj’s Major Major Problem?

What is Venus Raj’s Major Major Problem? – The answer of Miss Philippines Venus Raj, “major, major” had been a hot topic in the Philippines and had also been a trending topic on Twitter. Many said that her answer was basically the reason why the favorite candidate to win the Miss Universe 2010 ended up just 4th Runner-Up. What is really Venus Raj’s major problem which she seemed to have forgotten

When Venus Raj went to the stage to answer the question, it was William Baldwin’s turn so he asked, “What was the one big mistake that you did in your life? And what did you do to make it right?”

Venus Raj answered, “You know what, sir, in my 22 years of existence, I can say that there’s nothing major, major problem that I’ve done in my life because I’m very confident with my family, with the love that they are giving to me. So thank you so much that I’m here. Thank you, thank you so much!”

The excitement and the tension at the moment cause her to give such an answer. Venus forgot that she was stripped off the Bb. Pilipinas Universe crown before and if that was not fixed, she would not be in the Miss Universe 2010 competition after all.

Venus Raj holds the record of being the first-ever dethroned Binibining Pilipinas to have successfully attempted for a reinstatement of a Binibining Pilipinas crown. The dethronement happened a few weeks after her coronation due to alleged inconsistencies between her birth certificate and the personal account of her birth.

Upon dethronement of Venus Raj, her fans and supporters were saddened and angered. Fans immediately conducted online petitions, signature campaigns, Facebook fan pages, blogs, forums and petition letters to the Miss Universe Organization to report the irregularities. In April 10, 2010, the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc. reversed their decision.

Venus has also planned to take legal action against the Binibining Pilipinas Charities, Inc.’s decision but he did not pursue this because she feared that her future career would be affected.

In a local television interview, Raj’s statement if delivered during the Miss Universe 2010 would be the best answer someone could ever get. Raj said, “My fight is now more than just chasing a dream. It is about clearing my soiled reputation. It is about standing up for people who are poor and born out of wedlock. It is a fight for acceptance.”


The question is a timely and apt question for her but indeed the truth that pressure surely gets in the way is also an understandable way to explain what happened. Venus Raj had proved many things and being one of the five most beautiful woman in the world is already an accomplishment.

Congratulations Venus Raj and of course to the Miss Universe 2010 winner, Miss Mexico Jimena Navarette.

Tailback Mark Ingram missed the first two games of the Alabama Crimson Tide due to a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery. In his first game this season on Saturday against Duke, Alabama football fans have more reasons to be excited.  The Crimson Tide overpowered Duke, 62-13, to notch its third win in as many games. It was the highest score for Alabama in the last 19 years.

Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram made his presence felt early with his first handoff yielding a run for almost 50 yards. On his second rush, he ran another 50 yards. Ingram ran a total of 151 yards with two touchdowns as if he was trying to make up for lost time. Still strong as last year, No. 1 Alabama has its best player back and may still be in contention for another Heisman Trophy.

Greg McElroy only needed about 45 minutes to complete 14 of 20 passes for 258 yards. McElroy also tied his career record of three scoring passes. Trent Richardson, who took over the team offense while Ingram was out on injury, returned a kickoff with a 91-yard run and a touchdown.

The Tide was way ahead at the end of the first quarter, 28-3, and simply coasted from there.
