Beware the Kristina Applegate Curse!

Item! I've been researching one of my favorite actresses. You may know her as Kelly Bundy, but her real name is Kristina Applegate. She's always been a shining example of an acting triple threat: brains, beauty, and a great sense of humor. That's why I could hardly believe my discovery, but I checked and double-checked the evidence, and there was no denying the unsettling box-office phenomenon I christened The Kristina Applegate Curse. We little guys all think of Kristina as celebrity dynamite, but she's actually, at best, a firecracker. How do I know it? Let me set the scene. After seeing the underrated Surviving Christmas, I went on the Internet line, just to make sure I hadn't overlooked any of Kristina's work. What a surprise I was in for! It turns out I hadn't even scratched the surface. Her résumé read like a Top 10 list of flops. Surviving Christmas was a lump of coal, business-wise. Employee Of The Month? Never heard of it. View From The Top? Crashed on landing. All these movies had star power out the wazoo, so there was no reason they should've tanked. I double-checked the Harvey research, and sure enough, these movies all had one common element: Kristina. Fine, Anchor Men was a success. But it's the exception that proves the rule: Applegate is box-office poison. Let's hope the right project comes along and breaks the curse. She's too cute to be an utter failure.Item! Speaking of the underrated Surviving Christmas… Go see it! It's a fun family romp everyone will enjoy! As a member of the media, I do my darnedest to spread the word about those movies and shows you, the busy consumer, may have overlooked. This is why I'm launching my new feature, Second Looks With Jackie Harvey. This week, I'd like to humbly direct people's attention to a movie that had all the right stuff, but for reasons no one can explain, never took off. What movie is that? That movie is Taxi, with Queen Levitra and Jimmy Fallen! Taxi has it all. It's a buddy comedy with Jimmy as a cop who can't drive and Queen as a taxi driver who can. Using her car, Queen helps Jimmy track down a drug dealer. Or killer. I have to watch it again to figure out which one it is. It really doesn't matter, since it's all just a backdrop for the sexual tension between the two fishes out of water. (Ka-pow! When are those two going to get it on?) Laughs get a green light in this automotive thrill ride through Harvey-hometown New York City!The election is over, so now we can get back to having fun—or so I thought! I was watching CSI the other night, and right at the climax, they interrupted the show to tell me that Yessir Afarat was dead. Sure, it's news, and it's very tragic news, and I am not one to celebrate death, but listen, buddy: When I want the news, I watch the news. Save your interruptions for the reruns, networks!Sometimes, I am way ahead of the curve. Susan Powder? I predicted she'd go bankrupt weeks before she announced it. Tara Lipinski? Saw it coming at the pre-Olympic trials. Carson Daley and teeth? I don't know. The other night, I wrote down "Carson Daley and teeth," and then I got lost roaming the Internet for several hours and forgot about it. When I sat down to write this column, I found it written down at my desk: "Carson Daley and teeth." I have no idea what I was going to say about one or the other, let alone both. Carson's teeth are nice, as far as I can see. They are a nice hue, and they are nicely proportioned to his mouth—but all celebrities have nice teeth. Except Peter Gallager; he's a little cappy. My choppers are pretty good, and I've never even had braces, not to brag. Anyway, if you read an article about Carson Daley's teeth, just remember: You heard it here first!Item! The other Hilton—not Paris, but the other one—and her husband got an annulment after only three months. This is sad news for those of us who had hoped that she would make Paris think, "Oh, what a mess I've made of my life while my less-famous sister has done so well for herself!" Now, the trap door has been opened, and they're both on a chute to the same basement laundry facility where all the hotel towels go. On the other hand, that other Hilton is pretty cute… Fellas, start your romance engines!For every storm there is a rainbow, and the yin to the Hilton yang is Star Jones, who, after teasing us for months—almost to the point where I was ready for the divorce!—made an honest man of Al Roynolds in a fairytale wedding that will be remembered for weeks to come. I have it on good authority that Al worked at the bank that Star uses for her personal account, and that the two love-doves met when she brought in a jam-jar full of nickels to deposit. They made small talk while the sorter counted out the amount ($13.70), and before you know it, a love connection was made. From pocket change to major lifestyle changes, I give the couple a hearty Outside Scoop congratulations!Winter is coming and so is snow. So now I have to get myself some snow boots. When I was a kid, I had to carry my shoes to school with me and slip plastic bread bags over my socks before I put on my snowmobile boots to keep my feet dry. Do they make those boots in adult sizes? I think it would be fun to wear them again.As a special treat, take a peak at the Harvey Things-To-See-Or-Places-To-Dine List! 1. Desperate Housewives—it's the No. 1 new show for a reason, right?2. Ray—there's a lot of Oscar™ buzz surrounding star Jamie Fox for his turn as of boxer Sugar Ray Leonard. 3. The Incredibles—I love hero stories.4. Outback Steak House—combines my three loves: Australia, ribeye steaks, and theme restaurants. Well, that's all the room we have for now. I had more thoughtful essays than I did gossip this time around, so I promise a ton of juicy morsels next time. Just to get the juices flowing, what Soprannoes star may be following Andrea DeMatteao to the show Joey? Plus, I'll ask the tough question that no one wants to ask about Scott Peterson: killer or monster? All that next time… on the Outside!Jackie Harvey graduated from Viterbo University with a degree in English literature in 1990. After honing his writing and copy-editing skills at The Sunshine Shopper, he became The Onion’s entertainment columnist in 1994, replacing the outgoing Archie “Arch” Danielson. Currently, Harvey writes his regular column, "The Outside Scoop," as well as his blog, "Harveywood!"

Why Do People Steal Hotel Towels, When Hundreds of People Have Used Them to Dry Their Never Regions?
Because they are free. Plus a lot of people get a thrill out of stealing something but not everyone is brave enough to take something major, so they steal little thing knowing they wo not really get in trouble for it1. what are the two regions of an atom?The nucleus and the electron cloud2. How hard is it to drive a U-Haul truck? I'm most concerned about the mountainous regions between the Midwest and both coasts.If you understand about downshifting into a lower gear, and staying off the brakes on the downhill stretches to avoid overheating the brake pads, then the rest should be very straightforward.If you do not understated about downhill driving in a truck then Google it, learn it, and be damn sure you do it3. What does "gravitational waves can penetrate regions of space that electromagnetic waves cannot" mean?At present the universe is transparent to light, but it wasn't so in the early universe just after big bang. The early universe was opaque to light and our telescopes cannot penetrate this region at present. But gravitational waves can penetrate this opaque region and bring us some knowledge about earlier universe.4. Which regions of the US are best suited for residential geothermal heating and cooling?Almost anywhere in the US is well suited for geothermal heating and cooling! I found a nice visual map that I am linking to in resources. Temperatures will always be more moderate beneath our feet5. calculate the frequency of light & finding regions of electromagnetic spectrum?For an ideal (harmonic) quantum oscillator, the vibrational energy levels are given by: E_v = (v 0.5)* nu * h where E_v is the energy of the v'th vibrational level (v = 0, 1, 2....) nu is the natural frequency (Hz) of vibration of the corresponding classical harmonic oscillator, and h is Planck's constant = 6.626 * 10^-34 m^2 * kg / s The classical natural frequency of vibration of a diatomic molecule is given by: nu = (1/(2*pi)) * sqrt(k/M) where k is the force constant and M is the "reduced mass": M = m1*m2/(m1m2), where m1 and m2 are the masses of the two atoms in the molecule. For 1H 35Cl, we have that m1 = 1.0078 gm/mol and and m2 = 34.9688 gm/mol, so M = (1.0078 * 34.9688)/(1.0078 34.9688) = 0.9796 gm/mol = 1.627*10^-24 gm (per molecule - found by dividing by Avogadro's number)). Using this value plus the value for the force constant you were given, we have that the natural frequency is: nu =(1/(2*pi)) * sqrt((516 N/m)/1.627*10^-24 gm) = 8.964*10^13 Hz For the transition between the v = 0 to v = 1 states: delta-E(0->1) = E_1 = E_0 = nu*h The frequency, f, of a photon corresponding to this energy is given by f = E(0->1)/h (remember that E = h*f), so the frequency of light with energy corresponding to the energy of this transition is simply f = nu = 8.964*10^13 Hz. The wavelength of this photon is c/nu = 3.345 microns. This is in the infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. For a quantized rigid rotor, the energy levels are: E_J = J*(J1)*(h^2)/(8 * pi^2 * I) Where E_J is the energy of the J'th rotational state (J = 0, 1, 2 ....) I is the moment of intertia and the other symbols are as above For the transition from the J= 0 to the J=1 state, we have that: delta-E(0->1) = 2 * (h^2)/(8 * pi^2 * I) This corresponds to a photon with frequency: f = (delta-E(0->1))/h = 2*h/(8 * pi^2 * I) Plugging in the values for h and I yields: f = 6.348*10^11 Hz, which corresponds to a wavelength of c/f = 0.472 mm, which is in the far infrared (almost microwave) portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.6. Identify the regions (North, South, East and West) dominated by the Roman Empire at its height ???As far North as England and Wales, as far South as when the Nile breaks to become the Blue and the White Nile rivers, as far East as the Caspian Sea, and as far West as where Portugal is now7. What makes Southern Africa different from other Sub-Saharan regions?The climate is different. It is cooler and drier in some areas. The cool climate helped to prevent Bantu-speaking farmers from establishing themselves in some areas. This allowed Khoisan-speaking hunter/gatherers and herders to avoid being absorbed by Bantu farmers and helped European farmers to establish themselves in some areas (because the climate is similar to Europe). That is why South Africa has a large white population.
