Special Report: How to Protect yourself from Fallout!

We interrupt this blog to post info. that could protect you from radiation. ONE-eat Bananas! Something about the potassium. Someone told me this a long time ago, and, it couldn't hurt. TWO- copied from
Info. regarding protecting yourself in an emergency with simple Mercurochrome.Again, this couldn't hurt, unless you are sensitive to iodine. It says to put it on your skin, at least two-hours before exposure, and then for about 7 days.(copied)
The more likely scenario here, from fallout originating from far overseas, would at the most only require 7-10 days protection from radioiodine by taking Potassium Iodide (KI) tablets and having pre-stocked safe food and water in case people panic and stampede food stores.
If no KI tablets available, you can topically (on the skin) apply an iodine solution, like tincture of iodine or Betadine, for a similar protective effect. (WARNING: Iodine is NEVER to be ingested or swallowed, it is poison to drink.) For adults, paint 8 ml of a 2 percent tincture of Iodine on the abdomen or forearm each day, ideally at least 2 hours prior to initial exposure. For children 3 to 18, but under 150 pounds, only half that amount painted on daily, or 4 ml. For children under 3 but older than a month, half again, or 2 ml. For newborns to 1 month old, half it again, or just 1 ml. (One measuring teaspoon is about 5 ml, if you don't have a medicine dropper graduated in ml.) If your iodine solution is stronger than 2%, reduce the dosage accordingly. Absorption through the skin is not as reliable a dosing method as using the tablets, but tests show that it will still be very effective for most. Documentation of the above at, along with sources for KI tablets and formulas there for mixing up potassium iodide (KI) solutions if you acquire KI powder or crystals. Do not use if allergic to iodine. There are also a few other medical conditions and medications, discussed there, that are contraindicated that your physician can best advise you about. If at all possible, inquire of your doctor NOW if there is any reason why anybody in your household should not use KI, or iodine solutions topically on their skin, in a future nuclear emergency, just to be sure.

Salahis on Celeb Rehab was a STUNT?

20/20 Twitter feed

I like to keep-up with the Salahis by visiting the Facebook page, Tell the White House Party Crasher to Go-Away (link) . So, of course that was the first place that I visited to try and get the details about the recent Celebrity Rehab fiasco. There were so many bits & pieces there, that I had a hard-time figuring it all out.
This is my attempt to get the story in one place.

Radar Online, has an exclusive that was the first place to hint that everything might not be what it seems, because buried in their article were some comments from Tariq about an "expose".

"wanted her to pretend to be something she wasn’t. Tareq says he now has plans of exposing the makings of reality shows on national television."
we can show you a bunch of emails about what they wanted her to pretend to be, therefore, but that's going to come out later on with one of the major networks."
"See the first episode of busting some of these reality shows open on ABC News 20/20.  There will be a special on Friday and maybe more to come after that." -(RADAR ONLINE)

The Radar exclusive goes-on to say that 20/20 did not respond, but 20/20 is, in fact doing a piece on reality television this Friday. (See the Tweet at the top of this story, also the 20/20 website confirms).

Salahi's press statement (link) has some interesting comments, and even-though I recall them suing, and threatening to sue anyone who called them, "Party Crashers", they seen to have embraced the title, by introducing themselves as:
 "Globally recognized as the alleged White House Party Crasher", in the press-release. They go-on to ominously say : 
" To address the recent rumors that both Salahis are filming on the set of Celebrity Rehab:    Part of this story is inaccurate.  As you can imagine, everyone has a different journey that one goes through in life.  Television Star, Michaele Salahi has a very compelling story and while we are unable to discuss any Television Shows/projects in development, we can confirm that whatever new show she is participating in..." (Crasher's press release)
Confused yet? So, was the entire Celebrity Rehab an undercover assignment? Corporate espionage? I don't know, but personally, for probably the first time, I'm actually interested in what these two goof-balls have to say. Are they going to spill everything they know about reality television?

Is Matchmaker Bad for Business too?

We already know that last season's Millionaire Matchmaker didn't have much luck in the love department, but I just learned that being on that show could be the kiss of death for business.
One of the bachelors featured on the show, Jordan Osher, (he looked like Jerry Seinfeld), talked about his business called
Meet the Famous, is/was a site where people can upload pictures of celebrities, and news media can buy/download the photos.
I was looking-for a celebrity photos, so I thought that I'd register and see what was available. The site appears to be up & running but after I registered, I saw this message:  
Click image to enlarge-They're closed 
This site has been up & running for a few years and they do have photo-credits here & there online-so it was a real business. They just happened to stop doing business sometime after they were mentioned on Millionaire Matchmaker.

Jordan Osher's episode aired in late November, 2010. He seemed like a nice guy, and I liked that his small-talk included some chit-chat about some current novels. His "match" was nice too. He told Patti that they had a few dates, but it wasn't a, "Love Match".

In January, Page Six,  ran a story & some quotes from one of the bachelors, who had a lot of complaints about how show ruined his business. E! online (story link here) .
"he was dropped as a legal expert from TruTV due to his unflattering portrayal on Matchmaker, adding that his business slowed greatly since the show aired and that he was no longer getting calls for his services."
The E! story also reports that a flurry of cease & desist letters were sent-out, and that Patti claimed that it wasn't true.

So is Matchmaker bad for love And bad for business? Osher may not have made a love-match, but at least he has some credits to add to his IMDB acting resume. His appearance on Matchmaker is not currently listed in his credits, but according-to IMDB, he's been acting since he appeared-in Dawson's Creek! LiNk
