Kickstarter touts itself as a way for people to bring their dreams to life by allowing people to donate money to fund projects created by others that normally wouldn't have the financial backing to exist. However, some celebrities and media organizations have started using it for projects of their own. Is that fair?
A Seattle man had a noble idea leading up to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. He was going to dribble a soccer ball all the way from the Emerald City down to Sao Paulo, Brazil, arriving in time for the World Cup, to help bring awareness to One World Futbol Project, a charity he was involved with. He was hit by a pickup truck and killed yesterday in Oregon.
Members of our government are held to a high standard. As our elected representatives, they are expected to uphold the moral and ethical standards of our communities while acting in our best interests. Gloversville mayoral candidate Michael Ponticello must have missed that memo, as he was recently found passed out drunk at the Glove City Sports Lounge in the town in which he's running for office, with someone taking a hilarious photo of him out cold.
Normally when commercials are on while I am watching television, I grab another beer, change the channel, or do anything I can to not pay attention to the advertising on the screen. However, the latest commercial from K-Mart has made me do something entirely different: ship my pants.
Alcohol is good. I like alcohol. Most people of legal age would agree with me on both of those points. Consuming bodily fluids? Probably not something that as many people (myself included) enjoy. However, a trend is emerging where people are mixing the two.
St. Patrick's Day in Albany is one of the best and worst things about the city. On the one hand, you have a large group of people taking pride in their heritage with a lovely St. Patrick's Day Parade downtown. On the other, you have a bunch of frat bros like these idiots who want to drink green Keystone Ice from 6 AM to 5 PM, flip over Nissan Maximas and get into fights with each other. This is a story of the latter.
