Disturbing story. BP just keeps getting pummeled in the press - and deservedly so! "BP's orders" -scary, and perhaps even more than that, if the Coast Guard is taking orders from a private company. Opens up a big'ole can-o-worms!

Elin Nordegren Returns To College As Divorce Rumors Swirl



Kudos to Elin for making such a positive change. And well, unlike most college students, I don't think she'll need to worry about financial aid (though it could take her a while to fill out that darn FAFSA form!).

Shocking NASA Image: Never-Seen-Before Southeast Oil Slick Arm

This thing keeps getting curiouser and curiouser. No matter what BP's spin (and they will be writing dissertations and books on their PR for years on how not to handle a crisis), the satellite footage is indeed shocking. BP will likely end-up standing for "Billions Paid" - but still, that won't bring back the sealife and the economy that depends on it all along the Gulf Coast - and maybe far beyond!

Gulf Oil Spill: How BP Secretly Buys PR

OK, if you can't trust BP, who can you trust? Wait a minute, check that! They have the spill contained and everything cleaned-up, right?

Amazing tourism ad sorta-secretly funded by BP - watch:




and read detail on it below from The Daily Beast:

How BP Secretly Buys PR - The Daily Beast

Want to see the impact of the spill on tourism on the coast - see this homemade video that tells the story along the Gulf Shores-Orange Beach, Alabama area - not by any means a normal Saturday crowd:



Her narration is worth the price of watching (oh yeah, forgot it's free! :-)

I know the states are happy to get the funding to help their tourism industries make it through, but maybe a disclaimer is in order, ya think??

Sprinter Smashes Into Woman Who Wanders Into His Lane (VIDEO)

A lesson to all - ALWAYS have your head in the game. Glad neither of these athletes was apparently seriously hurt - there have been numerous cases of sprinters inadvertently running into one another due to their heads being down for so much of their races/events (he does appear to be a long jumper). What was she thinking though - or not thinking!
