This morning MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin was a guest on Morning Joe, a show he frequently appears on. During his segment he asked if the seven-second delay was on, knowing full well that the show has a seven-second delay that was established in 2008 when host Joe Scarborough made the mistake of using the f-word on air live.

Hosting a friendly get together this holiday weekend? Here are six patriotic cocktail recipes sure to liven up your party and get guests into the spirit of 4th of July.
Red, White, and Blue Cocktails
Turn summer drinks into firecrackers by coating the glass rims with Pop Rocks. Just dampen with lemon juice, then dip the rims in the candies on a plate. To get the red-white-and-blue effect, use Tropical Punch (blue) Pop Rocks, then fill the glasses with any red drink or cocktail; we mixed pomegranate and cranberry juice with seltzer.

Before he could even complete one backflip on his BMX bike, New Zealander Jed Mildon dreamed about doing three. Last month, in his hometown of Taupo, Mildon made headlines when he raced down a 65ft. ramp and completed a triple backflip before landing. (Watch the video below!)
Now, Guinness World Records™ confirms that Mildon achieved The Most Backflips on a Bicycle in a Single Leap.

When TLC launched their new show Extreme Couponing, we all got to see the crazy women who shop with stacks of coupons for quantities of items they don’t really need, all for the thrill of seeing a $300 bill reduced to $3.00. One episode featured a family of three with $30,000 worth of products stored in their basement. They will never use it all and most likely it will go to waste.
Thankfully, there are a few who use their mad coupon skills to donate products to those in need. Rebecca Newman of Tampa, Florida is putting her skills to work to help disaster victims.

Duct tape is known for having many diverse functions, and now the inexpensive tool can also be used to prevent the spread of infectious diseases!
The problem at Trinity Regional Hospital in the Quad Cities region along the Iowa/Illinois border was the same problem facing hospitals around the world: how to communicate with hospital patients diagnosed with an infectious disease. So what did the infection prevention team at Trinity come up with? A “Red Box” safety zone made with a three-foot square of red duct tape. Clearly extending from the threshold of a patient’s door, the red box keeps medical professionals at a safe distance from infectious individuals while still allowing open communication. Simple, yet ingenious! According to a press release outlining the experiment, Trinity saved up to 2,700 hours and $111,000 a year using the duct tape method.

Scientists have long held the belief that there is life on other planets. Groups like NASA, and Search For ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI) have been exploring that possibility for decades. They have set up listening posts and have sent space craft out to collect data on other planets. So far, no concrete evidence of life has been found, but there have been plenty of indications that life could exist elsewhere.
