I’ve never seen this:
“T3 Motion” Electric Standup Vehicle from Challenge Security.
They’re hiring, but you need your own gun.
Word comes from Scholastic that it will bring a bunch of books to San Francisco to promote its Summer Reading Challenge at this Friday’s Penguins + Pajamas event:
“The California Academy of Sciences will be hosting an “Penguins + Pajamas” event (their wildly popular kid museum sleepover) in partnership with the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge on Friday June 13th at 6 p.m. CT.
We plan on providing over 300 children’s books (The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System), Harry Potter and The Magic School Bus posters Captain Underpants trading cards, WordGirl stickers, Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge glow-in-the-dark bookmarks, EVEREADY flashlights and batteries (our sponsor this year), tote bags, reading certificates, summer reading book lists and more as kids learn about the night sky at one the nation’s most well-respected and popular scientific and cultural institutions.”
That was the wind-up, now here’s the pitch:
“On Friday, June 13, join us for a Brain Power Sleepover. Explore the museum at night while you have fun putting your brain power to work. Solve mind-boggling puzzles, marvel at the stars in a late night planetarium show, participate in the 2014 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge and get a free book! Learn about everything from brains to biology with interactive programs, live demos, and hands-on activities.”
(And if you’re going to do this, you might as well get a Membership, just saying.)
Just think, this could be you:
See you there!
I guess. Actually they were closed forlunch when I passed by. Today they will be in the Marina in the morning and then at Fishermans Wharf starting at 2 PM.

See you there, I suppose.
“The Get Schooled Challenge Bus crossed the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, bringing with it some familiar faces. The students at Thurgood Marshall Academic High School received a shock, as their guest lecturers included Grammy winner Ludacris, along with MTV’s Sway and Big Von. For nearly an hour, 800 students sat and listened (well, to be fair there was also some dancing) as this roster of urban icons explained the value of education.”
It’s not surprising as to why Jerry Brown would want to limit television advertising in the Governor’s race and why Meg Whitman would not. But see here how she responds to Matt Lauer’s questions about “ending the negativity.”
(Yes, you had a tough crowd but it’s not necessarily your answer that was the problem, Meg. It was the way you answered.)
She’s surprisingly tongue-tied considering how late we are in this campaign, IMO.

Oh well, at least television stations and all those consultants made money off of her campaign, so it’s not a total waste…
News of the Day: Republican John McCain is getting a little tired of being compared with President George W. Bush all the time:
“You will hear from my opponent’s campaign in every speech, every interview, every press release that I’m running for President Bush’s third term. You will hear every policy of the president described as the Bush-McCain policy. Why does Senator Obama believe it’s so important to repeat that idea over and over again?”
People at last week’s Union Street Festival (aka “Eco-Urban Festival”, aka BoozeFest ’08) had a chance to examine the differences between Bush and McCain firsthand. Check it:
Thanks to the Internets, you can take the Bush-McCain Challenge yourself right now. It’s tough! For example, the first query is:
Who promised that U.S. troops would be greeted as “liberators” in Iraq?
People at the neighboring Republican Party ironing board recruiting center (seen in background with the blue balloon) might think this push poll a tad unfair. What do you think?
