Thanks Neal from Real Estate Network Northwest!
that’s a lot of lunch.
The last lunch menu that was saved from the Titanic is being auctioned off at Lion Heart Autographs and is expected to go for $50,000 to $70,000, the Associated Press reports.
The Sept. 30 auction, which will also feature two other Titanic artifacts, will mark the 30th year after the debris was discovered at the bottom of the Atlantic.
The menu was saved by Abraham Lincoln Salomon, a survivor who escaped on Lifeboat 1. It’s signed by Isaac Gerald Fraunthal, who was said to have had lunch with Salomon the day of the tragedy. He also kept a ticket from the ship’s Turkish baths, which recorded a person’s weight using a specially designed chair. There are only three other weighing-chair tickets left as far as we know, and this one is expected to sell for between $7,500 and $10,000, the report said.
The third artifact Salomon saved was a…

America is declining, in large and important measures, yet policymakers aren’t paying attention. So argues a new academic paper, pulling together previously published data.
- America’s child poverty levels are worse than in any developed country anywhere, including Greece, devastated by a euro crisis, and eastern European nations such as Poland, Lithuania and Estonia.
- Median adult wealth in the US ($39,000) is 27th globally, putting it behind Cyprus, Taiwan, and Ireland.
- Even when “life satisfaction” is measured, America ranks #12, behind Israel, Sweden and Australia.
Overall, America’s per capita wealth, health and education measures are mediocre for a highly industrialized nation. Well-being metrics, perceptions of corruption, quality and cost of basic services, are sliding, too. Healthcare and education spending are funding bloated administrations even while human outcomes sink, the authors say.
“We looked at very broad measures, and at individual measures, too,” said co-author Hershey H. Friedman…

When fans first heard Rihanna’s track “Bitch Better Have My Money” earlier this year, they knew to expect that the accompanying video would likely be as combative as the lyrics. The new video does not disappoint.
In the seven-minute clip, Rihanna and two side-kicks embark on a gruesome revenge plot that would make any mafia boss proud. The video bloodbath also features appearances from Mads Mikkelsen and Eric Roberts, who star in Hannibal and The Human Centipede III, respectively, so you know they feel right at home.
With graphic content including — but not limited to — nudity, violence and torture, this video isn’t for the faint of heart. (Or, probably, your work computer.)
Eff This Guy: Clown Azz Donald Trump Hired Actors To Cheer For Him At Presidential Announcement EventIn Uncategorized on June 18, 2015 at 2:45 pm
If nothing else, it sure is entertaining. #2016
Donald Trump Hires Actors To Attend His Presidential Announcement As Supporters
It’s disgusting that someone’s wealth gives them access to our political system.
Donald Trump’s big presidential announcement Tuesday was made a little bigger with help from paid actors — at $50 a pop.
New York-based Extra Mile Casting sent an email last Friday to its client list of background actors, seeking extras to beef up attendance at Trump’s event.
“We are looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement,” reads the June 12 email, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. “We understand this is not a traditional ‘background job,’ but we believe acting comes in all forms and this is inclusive of that school of thought.” (Read the full email at the bottom of the post.)
The pay was listed as $50 for less…

If the shoe fits….
Yes, Donald Trump is now officially running for president. The real estate magnate and reality television star announced his candidacy Tuesday morning, promising to be “the greatest jobs president God ever created” and assuring the American people that his rivals “will never make America great again.”
Naturally, the jokes began flowing on Twitter shortly after Trump’s announcement, from political commentators, comedians and just about everyone else you can think of. Here are some of our favorites:

I’ve been working on improving sleep for the last few years.
By Geoff Weiss, Entrepreneur
In recent years, it has seemed as if Jay Z and Beyoncé could do no wrong.
As music’s first couple, she was riding high off the success of a surprise visual album that defied timeworn marketing norms. He was embarking on a savvy spurt of new business ventures, including the sports management agency Roc Nation Sports and the acquisition of uber-luxe champagne brand Armand de Brignac.
But now, the duo’s entrepreneurial streak seems to have struck a sour chord. Yesterday, in the latest instance of branding backlash, Good Morning Americateased that Beyoncé had an “amazing” announcement to share. When that news turned out not to be an album but a pre-recorded monologue about a plant-based diet that the starlet occasionally favors—a barely-veiled shill for her forthcoming meal-delivery company

The final Top 10 list.
For the final Top Ten of David Letterman’s career, an all-star selection of guests came out to give their thoughts in the “top ten things they’ve always wanted to say to Dave.” Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Tina Fey, and a few surprises made their feelings heard, and Letterman couldn’t have been happier it seems.
It’s easy to say that you don’t see a lineup like this for just anybody. It’s a special night.
