The Weekly Toast 2/10/12

February 10, 2012
THIS WEEK: Bird is the word...paws up...let's get ramblin'... • The plot thickened when news surfaced that Super Bowl bird-flipper M.I.A. has been estranged from her fiancé, heir to the Seagram’s fortune Benjamin Bronfman, and her two-year-old son Ikhyd for six months. • Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley star in this new movie about the end of the world, a comedy version of Children of Men: • Apple, which at different points in its history borrowed money from Intel and Bill Gates, is no...

The Weekly Toast 1/20/12

January 20, 2012
THIS WEEK: Lights out...Tebow lives...the only other girl in the world... • The Internet blew up this week with news that Google and Wikipedia might not work if SOPA/PIPA legislation was passed.

US vs. Natural Disasters

August 26, 2011
The United States faced not one but two natural catastrophes this week in the form of a 5.8 earthquake along the East coast on Tuesday and Hurricane/Post-Tropical Cyclone Irene over the weekend, and a third if you count Steve Jobs retiring from Apple. We’re still dealing with the water and structural damage, as well as Jobs on the Board of Apple, like Putin looking over the shoulder of Medvedev telling him he’s not doing it right, and, for the adrenaline junkies out there, Tropical ...
