about

Build The Tip is a crowdfunding project by 12s and for 12s to create a lasting work of art that pays tribute to our beloved Seattle Seahawks and their amazing 2013 Super Bowl Championship season.

The vision for Build The Tip came from two die-hard Seahawks fans who believe Richard Sherman’s tipped pass to Malcolm Smith to win the NFC Championship was a moment so pivotal, awe-inspiring, and emblematic of everything great about the 2013 Seattle Seahawks team, that it should be immortalized for future generations of Seahawks fans to enjoy. The play will be captured in a magnificent bronze sculpture designed and built by local artist Kevin Pettelle. The sculpture will pay tribute to the entire Super Bowl XLVIII championship team by incorporating every 2013 Seahawk player.

Build The Tip is in discussions with the Seattle Seahawks organization, Seattle city officials, and various local property owners to choose a location for the sculpture next to CenturyLink Field which will allows fans to enjoy and interact with The Tip on their way into home games.

Every dollar raised in the Build The Tip campaign above the cost of the project will be donated to charity.

The Orioles Dominated The Rays Offensively And Defensively

 The Orioles Dominated The Rays Offensively And Defensively

In the third inning, Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce hit back-to-back home runs. In the fifth inning, Delmon Young, J.J. Hardy, and Chris Davis went back-to-back-to-back. Then, with a 9-1 lead, Adam Jones went and stole a home run from Evan Longoria and doubled-up Matt Joyce trying to tag up to second base.

Markakis put the Orioles on the board with a two-run shot and Pearce made it a 3-1 Baltimore lead. Two innings later Delmon Young blew the game open with a three-run home run. Hardy and Davis tacked on the final two runs with solo shots of their own. Davis really put a charge in his, hitting it 426 feet.

As if Tampa weren't already demoralized by then, Jones made his incredible double play the next inning and stole a three-run homer from Longoria. Instead of a 9-4 game, or at the very least, runners at the corners and one out, the Rays had a man on third with two outs. James Loney grounded to second on a 3-0 count and that was it for Tampa Bay.

 

 

 

 

Fan puts Derek Jeter's head on the Mona Lisa, terrifies the world

 With Derek Jeter's retirement coming at the end of the year, people are falling all over themselves to pay tribute to the surefire Hall of Famer. Teams are giving him gifts. Fans are making him signs and corn mazes. And then -- AHHHHHHHHH

royals

AHHHHHH WHY IS DEREK JETER ON THE MONA LISA

 

DEREK

 

Because, uh, "masterpiece of baseball." We don't know. We don't know. We don't know why they would do this. At least they gave the Derek Lisa a bat and a glove.

We would like to warn any and all human beings to avoid Kansas City. The last time Derek Jeter went there, fans did this

 6.9-magnitude quake strikes Peru, USGS says

  By Nelson Quinones and Jethro Mullen, CNN

(CNN) -- A strong earthquake struck southern Peru on Sunday evening, injuring at least two people and damaging buildings, authorities said.

A house was destroyed and 19 other buildings were damaged, including a hospital, Peru's Emergency Operations Center said.

The 6.9-magnitude earthquake hit a mountainous area 43 kilometers (27 miles) east-northeast of Tambo at a depth of 101 kilometers (63 miles), according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The USGS revised down the quake's strength from the magnitude of 7.0 that it initially reported, as well as adjusting its data on the location and depth of the epicenter.

The damaged buildings included 14 houses, three schools and a church, according to authorities.

The emergency center also reported minor landslides in two areas.

Chris Rock "Grabs" Foul Ball, Hands It To A Kid

Chris Rock took in today's Yankees game and grabbed a foul ball near him, but since he's Chris Rock and has no real need for a foul ball, he tossed it to a kid. That kid not only got a souvenir, but a souvenir from Chris Rock. He looks a little young to have seen Big Ass Jokes, though.

Rock's method of getting the ball—half-heartedly putting one hand up while being more concerned about your own safety—is the way to go.

Also, anyone in the vicinity interested in seeing a shirtless Clint Dempsey got that view at no extra charge.

Welcome to the harsh reality of life, kid. There's always someone younger and cuter than you and they will always get the cool stuff you want.

The poor kid is basically hover-handing the ball as Jeter tantalizes him with it, right in front of his face. Watch him; he thinks might actually get a ball from Derek Jeter. As the realization dawns, he smiles and makes one final move and then immediately retracts his hand, almost apologizing for what should rightfully be his. After all, he was there first, he is a fully-functioning human with control of his motor faculties, he is not

 Russia's Fast And Elusive TOPOL-M Ballistic Missile Is Scary As Hell

 Russia's Fast And Elusive TOPOL-M Ballistic Missile Is Scary As Hell

The giant TOPOL-M road-mobile intercontinental ballistic missile is one frightening creation of mankind. It can hide in cities, forests, or even nuclear-attack hardened bunkers. It'll travel at over 15,000 MPH while taking evasive action and pumping out decoys on the way to its target.

 

The TOPOL-M missile was designed to penetrate an American anti-ballistic missile shield by leveraging high-speed, a relatively small infrared signature during its boost phase, advanced decoys (as many as ten carried on a single missile), maneuvering mid-course capability, and maneuvering independently targeted reentry vehicles, of which it can carry up to six, although they are said to carry just one operationally.

The missile's high speed shortens the time anyone can react to it, and every second matters when it comes to ballistic missile defense. The rocket motors were designed for a short, very powerful boost stage so that American space-based infrared detection satellites (SBIRS, DSP) have less time to detect and track it. Its decoys make it hard for radar to adequately track the correct target, and its countermeasures are said to have been upgraded to fool infrared tracking systems, which are use for mid-course interception. The missile and reentry vehicles' ability to dynamically maneuver outside of their ballistic track makes producing an effective kill solution, or even predicting the TOPOL-M's target, problematic. All these features come together to make a missile that is probably outside of America's missile defense capabilities today, and the sheer number of them that exists makes the idea of defending against anything but a limited barrage totally invalid.

The missile itself is close to seventy feet long, made mainly out of carbon fiber and weighs just over 100,000lbs at launch. It can reach out to about 6,500 miles. Its three stages are solid fueled, so it can be ready to launch at a moments notice, and can remain ready to fire for long periods of time.

 Bayern Munich Coach Flips Out At MLS All-Stars, Refuses To Shake Hands After The game

The MLS All-Star Game ended in ugly fashion on Wednesday when Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola, enraged by a series of fouls on his players, refused to shake hands with MLS All-Star team coach Caleb Porter.

Pep was right to be mad that there were dangerous tackles in what amounted to an exhibition game. But that's hardly Porter's fault, and he didn't exactly take the high road with the handshake snub.

After the game, which MLS won 2-1, Pep said he didn't shake Porter's hand because he "didn't see him."

The video begs to differ. Pep gives him the ol' fingerwag:


Here's how it all started.

After a harsh tackle by Seattle's Ozzie Alonso in the 65th minute, Pep went after Porter:

.pep mad 2

Porter had no idea what was going on:

Twenty-five minutes later, there was another bad foul, and Pep took his complaints to the fourth official:

No Bayern players were injured, although Bastian Schweinsteiger came out of the game with a bruised ankle. It all ended in a fingerwag.

    Carlos Gomez Is A Dancing Ninja Turtle

    Mark Reynolds was a guest on MLB Network's Yukfest Live with human balloon-from-the-supermarket-checkout-line Kevin Millar and Chris Rose Wednesday afternoon and got himself videobombed by Carlos Gomez. This was no run-of-the-mill videobomb, though, Gomez was dressed up as Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. We might finally have an explanation for this bizarre novelty shirt that looks like a pizza stain.

    The hosts spent a few minutes trying to guess who was in the Leonardo costume, eventually asking to see him move his hips, which led to the dance moves you see above.

    Gomez eventually broke the cardinal sin of stuffed costume-wearing and removed his Leonardo head to cool off. I think he also tried to smell the back of Reynolds's head? I dunno, baseball players are weird, man.

    Carlos Gomez Is A Dancing Ninja Turtle

    Gomez apparently obtained and wore the costume because his son asked him to, which is a pretty Cool Dad move on his part.

    Ryan Raburn Defensive Meltdown Leads To Easiest Inside-The-Parker Ever

    We've seen bad defense from Ryan Raburn before, but this is really something.

    For at least the second time in his career, the outfielder (now with the Indians) allowed a man to circle the bases entirely due to defensive miscues. The beneficiary this time was Kansas City's Mike Moustakas, and it broke a 0-0 tie in the eighth inning.

Artist's impression of the hot planet Osiris

 

This is an artistic illustration of the gas giant planet HD 209458b (unofficially named Osiris) located 150 light-years away in the constellation Pegasus.

This is a "hot Jupiter" class planet. Estimated to be 220 times the mass of Earth. The planet's atmosphere is almost 1000 degrees celsius. It orbits very closely to its bright sun-like star, and the orbit is tilted edge-on to Earth. This makes the planet an ideal candidate for the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to analyse and make precise measurements of the chemical composition of the giant's atmosphere as starlight filters though it. To the surprise of astronomers, they have found much less water vapor in the atmosphere than standard planet-formation models predict.

CENTRAL WASHINGTON – A new group on Facebook is devoted to helping fire victims in north-central Washington. People are offering everything from shelter to free repairs and even children’s toys.

Michelle McClanahan Rogge created the group late Thursday. By Friday morning, the group called “Chelan helps fire victims” had grown to more than 1,000 members.

According to the page, the Red Cross is working to get a mobile boarding unit set up for pets and animals who have been displaced by the fire.  The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society is also helping pets and animals.

Other posters are letting those who have been evacuated know where they can find a room, pitch a tent or park their RVs.

So far, officials say the best way to help is to stay away from the fires and donate to the American Red Cross >>

The Community Foundation of North Central Washington has set up the NCW FIRE RELIEF FUND and donations can be made directly online.

Chelan PUD is also accepting donations of gift cards or money at the following locations:

321 N. Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee
1034 E. Woodin Ave., Chelan
222 Chumstick Hwy., Leavenworth

 (CNN) -- Tense. Chaotic. Dangerous.

Three bank robbery suspects led police on an hour-long chase through Northern California on Wednesday, spraying patrol cruisers with bullets and shooting at least two of the three hostages they took.

In the end, two of suspects were killed by police and a third was wounded. One of the three hostages died, while two others were injured.

"The actions of the dangerous criminals ... was beyond reckless and chaotic," said Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones


 
Chase ends after hail of bullets, 3 dead

It all started with a security guard's call to 9-1-1. A bank robbery was underway, he told the emergency operator before the suspects tied him up.

An officer was there within minutes, but could only watch helplessly as the suspects bolted out of the Bank of the West branch with three female hostages -- two employees and a customer.

"I noticed that the front (door) of the Bank of the West opened slowly," Jose Maldonado told CNN affiliate KOVR. "Three guys had three guns and had the guns to the hostages' heads. They were petrified. Their faces were white. They were so scared."

The suspects stole a bank employee's SUV and raced out of the parking lot. Officers chased the vehicle.

Last year, when Yoenis Cespedes won the Home Run Derby, Adam Jones gave him a WWE belt. This year, when he won it again, he showed up to the trophy ceremony with the championship belt again -- presumably the same one, but who knows. It was awesome:

The winner, and still Home Run Derby champion, Yoenis Cespedes.

However, to create that awesome moment, Cespedes first had to figure out how to hold both the hefty trophy and the belt with one hand each:

Eventually, he tired of the effort and just gave the dang thing to the random dude standing next to him, who he certainly does not realize is MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred. Manfred wasn't quite sure what to do with it:

KISS’s Paul Stanley Opens Up About Overcoming Partial Deafness, Prepares for 40-Year Celebration

KISS’s Paul Stanley Opens Up About Overcoming Partial Deafness, Prepares for 40-Year Celebration

by Jon Wiederhorn

Dealing with the TV and film dalliances of Gene Simmons, the multiple fragmentation of the original KISS lineup, and conflicts with everyone from former managers to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is nothing compared to the traumas and trials Paul Stanley faced in childhood — the most daunting of which was growing up with a rare condition, Level 3 Microtia, that caused most of the cartilage on his right ear to be missing.

Largely because of his physical appearance he was bullied and ostracized, and survived by withdrawing and living much of his life inside his head, all of which he documents in vivid detail in his new memoir, Face the Music: A Life Exposed.

"Many people in the same position will end up with either a shotgun in their mouth or a needle in their arm," Stanley tells Yahoo Music. "Really, it comes down a simple choice. Do you live as a victim, or roll up your sleeves and make a life for yourself?"

Even those who can’t name the original members of KISS know the answer to the rhetorical question. Paul Stanley is one of the biggest success stories in rock music. As the band’s main songwriter and vocalist for more than 40 years — not counting the time he, Simmons, ex-guitarist Ace Frehley, and former drummer Peter Criss spent in KISS predecessors Wicked Lester — Stanley helped pioneer the evolution of arena rock and, along with his bandmates, became icons of pop culture.

KISS has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, and along the way Stanley has indulged in every whim and rock ‘n’ roll fantasy — which for him, has not included drugs and alcohol, something he has spoken a great deal about in the past.

Incredibly, Stanley rose to the top and crafted some of the greatest rock anthems and ballads while half-deaf. In 1982 he underwent reconstructive surgery and had a piece of his rib cage molded into a makeshift ear. Even so, he still can’t hear normally. “As far as the music went, I never missed anything because you don’t miss what you’ve never had,” he insists. “I hear music the way I hear it. It’s normal to me, but it’s not the way you hear music. And one of the key issues is if there’s a lot of noise I can’t hear people talking in front of me because only one ear is taking all the sound in. And I also can’t tell direction of sound. So if I’m driving and a fire engine is coming I could just as easily drive into the path of it as away from it because I don’t know where it is. But that hasn’t hurt me at all when it’s come to writing songs for KISS.”

At age 62, a time when many people’s hearing is on the wane anyway, Stanley is still going strong. KISS were recently nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and are touring with Def Leppard through August 31. Pretty much everything Stanley has strived for in his career has come to fruition. Interestingly, one thing he never wanted until recently was authorship of a book.

"I was adamant about not writing a book for decades," he says. "The world doesn’t need another one of those ‘look at me, I’m the coolest guy’ nonsense that most autobiographies of entertainers tend to be. They tend to be overinflated, self-promoting, and, a lot of times, glaringly not accurate."

Stanley finally decided to sit down with co-writer Tim Mohr to discuss Face the Music because he’s in a great place in his life, and wanted a document he could hand his four kids so they would understand where he came from and what it took for him to overcome the obstacles he has faced.

"Once I decided what kind of book I could write, it was very easy," Stanley says. "I don’t want to say it was cathartic because the catharsis came before I wrote the book. Some people say it’s such a great book because it’s so intimate. I couldn’t write a book if I was still in the midst of what was going on in the book. The book has a happy ending, and that’s why it was worth writing. After I was done with it, my son read it, and he said, ‘It’s you. It’s your voice, it’s your humor. It’s you talking.’"

As Stanley continues to celebrate the success of his first book, he’s also excited about the release of KISS 40, a double-disc set consisting of 40 songs — one from every KISS release and four previously unreleased tracks (the 1977 demo “Reputation,” “Deuce” live from 2004, “Cold Gin” live from 2009, and “Crazy Crazy Nights” live from 2010). Elsewhere, there’s a career-spanning collection of songs, including the explosive 1975 live version of “Rock and Roll All Nite” from Alive, which took KISS to a new level of stardom, and the controversial disco song “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” from the 1979 album Dynasty.

"I can’t be anything but proud of [‘I was Made for Lovin’ You,’] a song that was a top five hit around the world," Stanley says. "I can’t be anything but proud of a song that, in spite of people having ambivalent feelings, is still probably the biggest crowd raiser in Europe when we play it."

Having said that, Stanley admits “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” came during a turbulent point in the band’s career. “Towards the end of the ’70s, we were in the midst of being lost and not quite knowing who we were anymore and losing sight of what we loved and why we got into this in the first place,” he said. “We had problems within the band. Peter was basically a non-functioning member who didn’t play on albums at that point — Ace being in all kinds of trouble with drugs and drinking and Gene being distracted by Hollywood and me looking for the same validation from the wrong people — we started looking for credibility from people who didn’t matter. We already had the credibility of the people who did. ‘I Was Made for Lovin’ You’ was a result of a lot of things going on and it was an experiment on my part that turned out very well even though some people didn’t like the result.”

While Stanley has a fonder place in his heart for some KISS albums than others, he says that together they tell a story of a band that followed its path, made mistakes along the way, but ultimately enjoyed far more triumphs than failures. “My sense was always that KISS was about having no rules and although I hold the fans in the highest of esteem, I also expect them to understand that everything we do may not be to their liking, and the way they can show us is by not buying it. And they’ve spoken loudly and clearly when they didn’t like what we’ve done. But we couldn’t have done Creatures of the Night if we didn’t do Music From the Elder. I don’t begrudge anything we’ve done because everything we do leads us to where we ultimately get.”

Some KISS fans will always long for the reformation of the band’s original lineup, which after the Hall of Fame debacle seems less likely than ever to happen. But Stanley insists his favorite lineup ever is the current one, which includes guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer: “It embodies everything I’ve always wanted this band to be — a four-wheel drive car where everyone feels blessed to be there and works for the benefit of the band and also realistically works within what they are capable of doing and doesn’t try to be anything more than that,” he says. “It’s been great and it’s a lineup where we socialize and have a great time together and play fantastically onstage. It’s really the band I’ve always wanted it to be. The original lineup was combustible, and combustibility is terrific until it implodes and that’s unfortunate. The concept of combustibility is fine as long as it is harnessed. In the case of KISS it clearly led to the demise of the original lineup. That’s life.”

lolololololololol Americans don't know what soccer is lololol our team is one of the top 16 in the world maybe top 8 lolololol we're so bad

Google has had some funny Doodles related to the World Cup! They're cute and funny!

Okay, it's a little funny. American football is more popular than soccer in America, and that's not going to change anytime soon, even as soccer becomes more and more popular. But we're pretty damn good at it, as evidenced by the whole Round of 16 thing.

Tottenham Players Hold Wrigley Field First Pitch Contest, Goes About as Well as Expected
 

Tottenham Hotspur, everyone’s favorite English Premier League club, is embarking on a North American summer tour where it will play MLS teams in Seattle, Chicago and Toronto. During the club’s stop in Chicago one lucky Spurs player will get to throw out the first pitch at a Cubs game. The club held a competition on it’s official online channel to see who’ll be the lucky man to toe the slab at Wrigley Field.

The results … well … they go about as well as you’d expect for a bunch of Europeans who’ve probably never thrown a baseball. 50 Cent, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nick Young,  et al might want to take notes, however, because it could have been a lot worse.

Highlights include Michael Dawson saying he’ll use an underhand rounders-style throw only to attempt this would-be knuckleball:

German midfielder Lewis Holtby’s whistling and windup show he’s probably at least seen one baseball game in his life. Maybe.

Iceland native Gylfi Sigurdsson claiming throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley would be a “dream come true” also made me laugh. Harry Kane, likely fresh from the beaches of Ibiza, provides a little unintentional comedy, too. This video also serves as further proof former American international keeper Brad Friedel has probably spent a little bit too much time across the pond, if his Ohio-meets-Liverpool accent hasn’t done so already.

 

 

 

 2014 World Cup Final Rating: Over 26 Million Americans Watched on TV

Germany v Argentina: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Final


 

A lot of Americans tuned in to watch Sunday’s 2014 World Cup final on ABC. ESPN’s public relations released the ratings figures for Germany’s 1-0 win in Rio. The game averaged over 17.3 million viewers … on ABC.  The total number jumps closer to 26.5 million when you factor in the 9.2 million viewers on Univision and is probably much higher given the ratings system doesn’t take into account people watching in bars and or other public forums. ESPN also touted 1.8 million unique viewers on its WatchESPN app.

So all together, it’s not a bad total when you consider some of the slanted pre-World Cup polls that surfaced still clinging to the notion nobody in America cares about soccer.

Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Edison: Who Was the Better Inventor?

 Nikola Tesla would have celebrated his 158th birthday today (July 10).

The Serbian-American scientist was a brilliant and eccentric genius whose inventions enabled modern-day power and mass communication systems.

His nemesis and former boss, Thomas Edison, was the iconic American inventor of the light bulb, the phonograph and the moving picture. The two feuding geniuses waged a "War of Currents" in the 1880s over whose electrical system would power the world — Tesla's alternating-current (AC) system or Edison's rival direct-current (DC) electric power.

Amongst science nerds, few debates get more heated than the ones that compare Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison. So, who was the better inventor?

"They're different inventors, but you can't really say one is greater, because American society needs some Edisons and it needs some Teslas" said W. Bernard Carlson, the author of "Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age" (Princeton Press, 2013).

From their starkly different personalities to their lasting legacies, here's how the two dueling inventors stack up. [Vote: Tesla vs. Edison - Who Was the Greatest Inventor of All Time?]
