Danica Patrick became the first woman to win the Daytona 500 pole position Sunday when she covered the 2½-mile speedway in 45.817 seconds. Patrick(Snip) was the eighth driver in the qualifying session and averaged 196.434 mph. She had two wait for two hours as 37 other drivers tried to better her mark on the Daytona, Fla., track. Jeff Gordon was the only other driver to average 196 mph, clinching the second spot on the front row for the race, which will be next Sunday.

She´ll lose.
Again.

I cannot remember a more over-hyped sports figure. She´s the Anna Kornikova of racing.

I think Michelle Wie was a little more over-hyped. This is a big deal. FOX is happy as can be.

These threads have a magnetic attraction for the resident misogynists.

This time she beat the others to the pole position. I know racers. They do not sit back and just let that happen.

So deal with it.

I don´t think that any driver would be willing to run the risk of losing their sponsor if he didn´t try to win.

Danica usually has a very fast car and she has proven that she can drive when she´s the only one on the track in qualifying. Racing is another story.

I hope she has success.

Being a female, I am hardly anti-women, however I do believe in fairness. She hasn´t done anything that would put her into cup racing except they (head honchos) want her there for more publicity. Heaven knows NASCAR need publicity. Their ratings are falling like a rock. I feel sorry for all those racers who´ve paid their dues and won´t ever get there cause they aren´t willing to take their clothes off.

Oh, for crying out loud! She won the pole. None of the others beat her time.

As another said, deal with it.

I see a lot of truth in #9, especially the part about the haters. And their shorts.

When the women start kvetching about another woman it´s often a case of the Green-eyed Hydra raising its ugly head. Just sayin´.

Her sponsor is willing to trust her with a darned expensive piece of very quick machinery. And she has done good, as they say on the NASCAR circuit. As for taking off her clothes, the last time I looked she was wearing a driver´s suit pretty much like all the others.

Good job, Danica! I´ll be wearing my #10 ball cap for the 500.

Maybe NASCAR turned on their magic tailwind machine just for her and no one else (what?? not for Jimmie Johnson?).

Haven´t watched NASCAR in years. Not since they put in all the chickens**t rules to punish MOPAR because King Richard was blowing everybody off the track. Same thing with IndyCar racing. It might as well be IROC. Danica Patrick gets way too much attention relative to her accomplishments on the race track. Sort of like affirmative action. She had the fastest car out there this week so she should have taken the pole.

It´s Final -- Corn
Ethanol Is Of No Use
Forbes, by James Conca    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/21/2014 7:01:43 AM     Post Reply
OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released two of its Working Group reports at the end of last month (WGI and WGIII), and their short discussion of biofuels has ignited a fierce debate as to whether they’re of any environmental benefit at all.

It´s all happening at the zoo today, Easter Sunday in Sydney, where Prince George met a cute little critter named for him and the world got to see the royal baby for a second official appearance. After Easter services at the Anglican cathedral in Sydney in the morning, Prince William and Duchess Kate changed clothes, collected George and headed for the Taronga Zoo, Sydney´s harbor-side menagerie of Australia´s wonderfully quirky wildlife. It was another beautiful sunny day and thousands had been waiting to see them for hours before the zoo opened. Eventually there were so many people, the zoo closed to further

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

People who have accounts on the enrollment website for President Barack Obama´s signature health care law are being told to change their passwords following an administration-wide review of the government´s vulnerability to the confounding Heartbleed Internet security flaw. Senior administration officials said there is no indication that the HealthCare.gov site has been compromised and the action is being taken out of an abundance of caution. The government´s Heartbleed review is ongoing, the officials said, and users of other websites may also be told to change their passwords in the coming days, including those with accounts on the popular

Her husband, 91-year-old Kenneth Felumlee, died the next morning.

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
