Norwegian Havard Rugland wants to play in the NFL. To aid his cause, the 27-year-old loaded this clip on YouTube to show how skilled he is with his left foot and it worked as he attracted the attention of NY Jets scouts and earned himself a tryout. Goes to show that it you have the skills and posess the will, anything is possible!
Climbers' ropes secured around their torsos, Jason Coatney and Armando Balmaceda stand in a melange of open paint cans and brushes. These two muralists of Colossal Media, the largest hand-painted advertising company in America, are heavily layered in sweatshirts and raincoats. But in this industry, c'est la vie. Paintbrushes in their fingerless-gloved hands, earbuds in their ears -- "I like to start out with Miles Davis in the morning," Coatney smiles, his breath visible in the frigid air -- they begin yet another workday in the sky.
Just in time for Mothers Day, we went around New York City asking real people on the street to say thank you to their mothers. So many terrific responses, some unexpected, some adorable, all brought a huge smile to my face. Thanks Reggie Watts for being in the video. I would be so grateful for all of you to share this video on Facebook and tag your mom or one you know in the post. My goal is to make many moms happy!

Home Alone 2 may not be quite as good as the first, certainly no as originally funny, but still a heartwarming story. Seriously though, how can they forget their kid twice... and... how the heck can those burglars break out of jail so easily, yet still manage to get foiled by a little kid?
BTW: I've heard that little kid (Macaulay Culkin) made $8 million on this flick, the largest ever for a child star on a single film.

Matthew Modine rides the streets of New York on a bicycle to tell everyone about "Bicycle For A Day."
"Bicycle For A Day" is a fun, open and proactive invitation designed to inspire individuals, communities, governments and corporations to take a step towards solving the current environmental issues. BFAD is a global initiative bringing together people who choose to ride a bicycle rather than use gas-powered motor vehicles.
BFAD will debut with small, VIP events during Summer / Fall 2008 that lead up to a gathering at The South Street Seaport in NYC, to mark the "official" BFAD day, September 20th.
This is not a bicycle race! BFAD is a day to demonstrate how doing ONE thing can help improve the environment.
