Darron Breeden of Orange, Virginia, topped a field of seven contestants who participated in the annual contest, which is held in a park between the French Quarter and the Mississippi River.

  • [Vanity] How can I post an article if the title is too long to fit?

    Self | 10/24/16 | Paul R.
    I tried to post an article about the death of Tyson Gay's daughter, and it was apparently pulled because the title of the post was only a portion of the original. Trouble is, the original title was too long to fit (way over 100 characters). What the heck? Can it only be posted as a vanity that will be largely ignored? Mods or others PLEASE advise!

    Just throwing out an idea based on an observation. In all my years on FR, watching the duplicate threads show up, and the users insisting they searched for existing articles. I believe them. The problem lies in the default searching option in my view. Change it from keywords to title. The title search is vastly more useful and is what I use to detect duplicate articles, and I suspect the same to many of those that enjoy pointing them out. In my observation, many duplicate articles are a result of inaccurate or incomplete keyword lists that don't quite literally have...
  • Donald Trump gave his new book a 'nasty title' (Crippled America)

    10/07/2015 5:30:49 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 48 replies
    Real-estate tycoon Donald Trump has a new book coming out: "Crippled America." The Republican presidential candidate discussed how he named the book at a Wednesday campaign rally in Iowa. "I was going to say the 'Make America Great Again Book.' Eh, it's too nice, because our country's in trouble," Trump recalled thinking. "Then I was going to say 'Greatness in America.' Then I said, 'It's too nice.'" But then the business mogul said an angry photo of himself inspired a harsher title. "Then I had a photographer come up. Then I said, 'Do you think I should be smiling?'" Trump...

    One thing that would be cool, if they could fix it, is to allow you to make the title bar real distinct. Win7, at least in my enterprise installation, doesn't let you. In Win 3.1, I could make a red-to-yellow gradient on the active window title bar, where it says the application program name or the file title. Then you could easily see which is the active window.

    Women's feature magazines have never been a paradigm of journalistic independence, but More magazine has officially shredded any pretext of objectivity towards the White House by inviting first lady Michelle Obama to guest edit its upcoming July/August issue. More, which bills itself as a magazine "for women of style and substance," invited the first lady to showcase her pet causes and "significant contributions" during her six years at the White House. "I am excited and honored to be guest editor of More this month and tell you a little bit about the issues I'm working on, as well as the...

    Jon Jones has been stripped of his UFC light heavyweight title and suspended indefinitely following his arrest in New Mexico on a hit-and-run that police say left a pregnant woman with a broken arm. The UFC announced the extraordinary penalties Tuesday night for violations of its athlete code of conduct policy following Jones' latest arrest in a string of misbehavior. "Got a lot of soul searching to do," Jones posted on his official Twitter account Tuesday. "Sorry to everyone I've let down." UFC President Dana White and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta apparently met with Jones in Albuquerque before making their decision,...

    Looking for some Freeper musical help - I have a song that I can't recall the title or group from the late 80s early 90s. It is basically a list of cities sung very rapidly one after another. I know there at least two other songs that used a similar technique of stringing words together to a rhythm - one was in I believe the early sixties and the other in the later 90s. I have always been terrible with music titles and group names so looking to see if any FRiends can help me out on a Friday night....

    New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman sued three of the nation's largest banks over a private national mortgage registry system, contending it has resulted in a wide range of deceptive and fraudulent foreclosure filings. The lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court in Brooklyn, names units of Bank of America Corp., J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and Wells Fargo Corp. as defendants, as well as MERSCorp., which owns and operates the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, known as MERS. In his complaint, Mr. Schneiderman alleges that MERS has effectively eliminated the public's ability to track property transfers because those...

    Anwar al-Aulaqi (AP/Muhammad ud-Deen) U.S. officials have given Anwar al-Aulaqi a newly elevated designation on the day of his death by drone strike, describing him as “chief of external operations” for al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Yemen. The new title, cited by officials at the White House and the CIA, reflects Aulaqi’s evolution from Muslim cleric to alleged terrorist plotter, as well as a desire by American officials to persuade the public that the extraordinary killing of a U.S. citizen overseas was warranted. U.S. officials also disclosed what they said were new details about Aulaqi’s operational role, saying that he personally had...

    A Utah court case in which the owner of a Draper townhouse got clear title to the property, even though he still owed $132,000 on it, raises new legal and financial questions about a property-records database created by mortgage bankers. The award of a title free of liens means that whoever owns the promissory note on the Draper property — likely a group of faraway investors — no longer has the right to foreclose to collect on a delinquent loan. Indeed, the townhouse owner has sold the property and kept the money. Those who own the promissory note probably don’t...
  • How a mortgage clearinghouse became a villain in the foreclosure mess

    The Washington Post ^ | 12/30/2010 | Ariana Eunjung Cha and Steven Mufson
    In the early 1990s, the biggest names in the mortgage industry hatched a plan for a new electronic clearinghouse that would transform the home loan business - and unlock billions of dollars of new investments and profits. At the time, mortgage documents were moved almost exclusively by hand and mail, a throwback to an era in which people kept stock certificates, too. That made it hard for banks to buy and sell packages of home loans to investors. By contrast, a central electronic clearinghouse would allow the companies to transfer thousands of mortgages instantaneously, greasing the wheels of a system...

    A working group of attorneys general and banking officials from all 50 states has gathered evidence in its probe of potentially improper or illegal lending and servicing practices. The group met with representatives of five top mortgage lenders and servicers — GMAC/Ally, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo and Bank of America. "We are having ongoing discussions with these institutions. We have also met with groups of investors and a number of consumers … We are well under way with that process." The investigation came together quickly in the fall, after complaints arose about lenders and servicers using "robo-signing" practices...

    Does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act need title reform?By Marilyn Serafini Kaiser Health News Sunday, December 26, 2010; 9:46 PM Puh-pack-uh? Is that some kind of llama? In fact, it's the ungainly acronym of the new health-care law - PPACA, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Many people who support the law, or are neutral toward it, call it "puh-pack-uh" or "pee-pack-uh." Others call it the Affordable Care Act or plain old health-care reform. But those less-than-inspiring monikers aren't much help to Democrats trying to convince the public that "Obamacare" - the Republicans' pejorative name for the...

    In an interview today, the author at the center of a controversy about Amazon’s sale of a self-published pedophile’s guide told TSG that he has sold exactly one copy of the book and revealed that he was involuntarily hospitalized following a “mental breakdown.” Noting that, “I have what they call manic depression,” Phillip Greaves, 47, said that he himself was not a pedophile and that “the best advice I can give a pedophile is accept that masturbation is your best friend.” Greaves’s book, “The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-Lover's Code of Conduct,” last week became available for...

    U.S. lawmakers pushed for the country's largest mortgage lenders to suspend foreclosures in all 50 states after Bank of America Corp announced on Friday it would temporarily halt evictions nationwide. BofA, the largest U.S. mortgage servicer, is the first U.S. bank to institute a nationwide moratorium on foreclosures, expanding on a 23-state suspension announced last week while it conducts a review of its procedures. Disclosures that some big U.S. mortgage processors filed false affidavits in thousands of foreclosure cases is drawing fresh scrutiny to an industry already in the sights of regulators and lawmakers for its role in the financial...
