TKD at the Olympics

There’s no place for this in any sport.

Cuba’s Angel Valodia Matos, left, kicks match referee Sweden’s Chakir Chelbat in the face … at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing… Matos attacked the official, throwing punches and kicks, after being declared the loser in his bronze medal match.

He, and his coach, have been rightly banned for life from all international competitions.

Much more fun is the “Kicked in the Face” gallery at NBCOlympics.com — pictures of scoring kicks to the head in the Tae Kwon Do Matches.

Gizmodo has a nice review of the current iPhone headsets available… a good place to start when I replace mine…

The Most Admired Journalist in America

10:35 pm - Jason G. - Politics

From the NY Times:

When Americans were asked in a 2007 poll by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press to name the journalist they most admired, Mr. Stewart, the fake news anchor, came in at No. 4, tied with the real news anchors Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw of NBC, Dan Rather of CBS and Anderson Cooper of CNN. And a study this year from the center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism concluded that “ ‘The Daily Show’ is clearly impacting American dialogue” and “getting people to think critically about the public square.”

And the headline is priceless…

Who invades us will be killed!

7:10 pm - Jason G. - Humor, Politics

We’ve seen quite a few interesting things from China’s government and the Olympic planning committee, but this one is not too surprising…

From MaoXian:

It’s worth noting that the “Hymn to the Motherland” sung (er, lip-synched) at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics was abbreviated, in part cutting out this key stanza:

The sun is rising in the East,
The People’s Republic is growing up,
Our leader Mao Zedong,
Is leading us forward.
Our life is getting better every day,
Our future is forever bright.

This line was also not included:

Who invades us will be killed!

If anyone can improve on my rough translation, please leave a comment and I’ll update the post later.
