Denver Post Plog: The Year in Pictures
|3:00:59 AM, Saturday, December 18, 2010|
The year brought stories of great tragedy both in the United States and the world. The gulf oil spill put New Orleans through devastation it had not seen since the hurricane. In Haiti, a massive earthquake made an already bad situation for those who live there even worse.
A street vendor tries to keep the crowd from stealing her goods in Port-au-Prince on January 24, 2010. Police in the Haitian capital counted their losses and gathered their forces today, preparing for a surge in crime they are certain will follow the devastating January 12 earthquake.
Pakistani flood survivors try to catch food bags from an army helicopter in Lal Pir on August 7, 2010. Pakistan raced to evacuate families threatened with fresh floods, as heavy rains worsened the disaster, with up to 15 million people affected.
Chilean miner Osman Araya is welcomed by his wife Angelica as he comes out of the Fenix capsule after been brought to the surface on October 13, 2010 following a 10-week ordeal in the collapsed San Jose mine, near Copiapo, 800 km north of Santiago, Chile. Araya was the sixth from the 33 trapped miners to be lifted from underground.
-- A stunning, albeit more than a little discouraging, collection of images. Please take a look, I could not pick one photo to sum up this gallery.

23,096 Stuffed Animals Bombard a Hockey Rink
|2:19:14 AM, Saturday, December 18, 2010|
"While tossing hats onto the ice when a player scores three goals might be hockey's most famous tossing tradition, it simply doesn't compare to the Technicolor grandeur of 23,096 teddy bears and other stuffed animals blanketing the rink as they did at the Calgary Hitmen game on Sunday.
For 16 years the Hitmen, who were co-owned by and named after former WWF champion Bret Hart, have held a Teddy Bear Toss to benefit over 50 charities in Alberta that work with children. On Monday, after the 23,000-strong toss, the players hand-delivered teddy bears to the Alberta Children's Hospital.
The fans bring the stuffed animals to the game and then wait for the first goal to be scored. For the 16,844 fans at the Scotiabank Saddledome watching the Hitmen take on the Red Deer Rebels on Sunday, the honor went to Cody Sylvester at 3:49 of the first period. He scored, and the mayhem started and continued for 40 minutes while play was delayed. "It's unbelievable," Sylvester told the Examiner after the game. "Scoring in front of all those fans and all those teddy bears coming down on you -- it's a pretty special moment..."
Bags from Gap’s ‘FEED USA’ Campaign Actually Made in China
|2:09:55 AM, Saturday, December 18, 2010|
“Gap's well-meaning anti-hunger charity campaign FEED USA has hit a bit of a messaging road bump.
The FEED USA bags that are intended to raise money for the country's school lunch programs were made in China, not America, despite promotional materials that declared otherwise, according to a photo snapped by one eagle-eyed shopper, shown. The patriotic bags adorned with American flags are advertised with materials that proclaim they are "Made in USA," which you can see in these photos reportedly taken by Thomas Martin (flagged by the blog BrandChannel).
Two of the five FEED USA bags listed on Gap's website are said to be "imported," but the bag shown in the photo above is described as made in the USA on the website. The bags cost between $19.50 to $39.50, and for each bag bought, $5 goes to school lunch programs.
We'll update this post with comment from Gap's PR department once someone there gets back to us...”

Dead Sea Dying a Slow Death
|11:59:03 PM, Friday, December 17, 2010|
“Fathi Huweimel leans carefully over the edge of a jagged slab of broken asphalt, peering down into a 60-foot-deep crater that was level ground just a day earlier. All around him sprawl the ruins of Ghawr al Hadithah, once a farming village but now a jigsaw of broken houses, shattered roads and abandoned tomato fields growing wild amid massive holes pocking the earth. To the east, the village gives way to desert fringed by stark, sere mountains. To the west, a few hundred yards away: the glimmering waters of the Dead Sea.
“We’ve had about 75 holes open up in the last two years,” says Huweimel, a thickset man with a broad mouth and deep brown eyes who has lived all of his 45 years in this part of central Jordan. The sinkholes first started appearing in the 1980s, but the pace at which new ones open up has increased dramatically in recent years. “Everyone is leaving,” continues Huweimel, who works as a field researcher with environmental group Friends of the Earth-Middle East (FoEME). “Those who stay are staying because they have no choice.”
Miraculously, no one has been killed by a cave-in yet, though there have been some close calls. A group of seven women—including Huweimel’s aunt—were harvesting tomatoes together one day when the ground collapsed with a roar two meters in front of them. A salt factory that employed a hundred people was evacuated before it caved in.
The cause of all this destruction is water—or, rather, lack of it. The ground is collapsing into sinkholes because the water beneath it is retreating. The water is retreating because the Dead Sea, a storied feature of the landscape since biblical times, is drying up…”
The Distant Executioner: American Snipers
|6:08:23 PM, Friday, December 17, 2010|
During World War II, snipers were seen as a spooky, merciless “Murder Inc.” by other soldiers—the brutal intimacy of their kills made them a breed apart. But in Afghanistan, where avoiding civilian deaths is a top priority, U.S. military sharpshooters may have found the war that needs them most. Going inside the world of Texas Army National Guardsman “Russ Crane,” who has dropped a Taliban fighter at 806 meters, the author discovers the sniper’s special talents and torments, and why it helps, in Crane’s view, to have God on your side.
