Times Man of the Year - no we cant have that.


Up until today it was widely reported Julian Assange, the founder and Editor in Chief of Wikileaks, was Times 2010 man of the year. It seems it was somewhat of a shock to most news sources when Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook replaced him suddenly. Speculation seems to be that this is evidence of more US government pressure similar to what was excerpted on on VISA, Mastercard, Amazon and PayPal to stop this journalistic enterprise from obtaining donations from the public. Oddly Assange toped the Times reader’s poll in which Zuckerberg came in 10th, Julian Assange of Wikileaks received 382,000 votes, Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook received 18,000, some 20 times less. Then again Adolf Hitler was Times man of the year in 1938 so maybe this years last minute politicly correct replacement may come back to haunt Time as well?

On Safari [not]

I have been planning a zoo project for some time and although there are millions of images of lions and tigers all over but I thought it was about time I had my own. Taronga Zoo Sydney, New South Wales, Australia was officially opened on October 7, 1916, and is located on the shores of Sydney Harbour in the suburb of Mosman. Taronga is an Aboriginal word meaning beautiful view. It's $43 to get in and $15 to park your car, so go early and enjoy your day if you are thinking of going. At least the money goes to a good cause for animal conservation.
