10

Tap Tuesday everyone! Here I have gathered the top 10 hottest faucets I’ve seen (so far).  Starting at the top, LED lights can make any tap shine! Off to the next row down, starting from the left, somewhat average design, however the sleek modern look and blue accent adds quite a lot to a washroom!  Next you have a personal favourite, a hands-free! Very nice look as well, the slim faucet is very new and bright.  Next, oh ho ho, we have a change in the line-up!  A styled faucet, a fish!  As long as it stays shiny, I enjoy the look! Great for an outdoors-y house.  Next we have another hands-free, a Japanese design, very eccentric!  The next one is probably my favourite design, the look is just so futuristic.  Also, hands-free (woot woot).  Next we have a more common look, however the modern shine is very nice.  After that, you have a neat little tap, this one looks like it would have a lower water pressure than most, but it looks very nice.  And the last one, finally has some colour to it!  Very nice design.
Coming up later, Tap Tuesday’s Worst Taps!

Today in Teen Wolf News - 

Just how bad are the ratings?

I incorporate all the tumblr hate I endured into a piece about the why of those sinking ratings.

Stare in amazement at how much alike Baby Tyler and Big Boy Tyler look as we get ready for the big MTV Being Tyler Posey Special Sunday Night.

So. I've been in a long running 'debate' with the teen wolf wiki tumblr. And I basically rattled off the reason that people have stopped watching that everyone else has said, the response? "Just deal with the fact that no single person has any influence on the ratings and there isn’t a whole army of people who think just like you do."

They are so determined to not admit the real truth behind why the ratings are falling. I don’t know why. They must really be upset that the fandom is turning against the show and its supporters. 

No single person has any influence on the ratings. That’s true. However, the entire audience does in fact have the power to sink their ratings. And that is exactly what has happened. 

Jeff has not only turned off the fandom, but he has even managed to turn off casual viewers. Both Jeff and his team, and even these TeenWolfWikia whackos don’t seem to understand that an audience doesn’t owe loyalty to the show. If the show turned to shit, fans will stop watching.

It is simple. 

I don’t know which person you’re debating with, but it’s no use trying to argue with a complete a total idiot. You’ve told them the reason, I’ve told them the reason, and other fans have told them the reason. 

They are looking for an answer that doesn’t exist. They are reluctant to accept the fact that fans aren’t watching another show on Monday nights at 10pm. They just aren’t watching Teen Wolf anymore, and the ratings are a reflection of that. 

The TWW people are only making fools of themselves. I don’t know who’s paying them to pretend like everything is still okay, but it’s embarrassing. Ugh. I cringe seeing them desperately grab for something that isn’t there. 

They need to just deal with the fact that the audience is no longer here in support of Teen Wolf. There is an army of people that think alike, and it is the audience. We have all been turned off from the pile of shit that is Teen Wolf.

Teen Wolf's ratings are sinking quicker than the Titanic. Season 4 is weak and I'll be kind of glad if Season 5 is the last. Because I do not want all these new characters being replacements for possible future seasons when the original cast leave.

I’m actually looking forward to season 5 right this moment. I’m not looking forward to malia, but I still think it has potential to be good!
But yes, I wouldn’t want the new characters to replace the old ones, that always sucks major!

Metal sink Monday!  Look at this beauty, amazing modern design, effective as well. I don’t see much splash rate, so that’s a plus.  The sleek, metal look could make anyone do a double take.  Just look at that tap!  What a change. It’s incredibly easy to match with, as well.  My only issue is that you couldn’t fill up the sink, and the small pole stinking up looks either out-of-place, or as if a piece is missing.  I rate it a 9/10.

UK construction output flat in July as housebuilding slows

British construction output stagnated in July, causing the annual growth rate to sink to an eight-month low as rapid expansion in private house building started to level off. Construction output was unchanged on the month in July, compared with growth of 1.2 percent in June, the Office for National Statistics said on Friday. A separate survey carried out by Markit recently showed Britain’s construction industry expanded at its fastest pace in seven months in August, boosting job creation but also putting strain on suppliers. On a three-monthly basis - which strips out some volatility in the data - construction output was up 0.6 percent, compared to a flat outturn in the three months to June, the ONS said.

Sinks that look good, but don’t do good.  Prime example.  I know what you’re thinking, ‘But oh great sinker, there is a drain for the water, and the shape is curved enough to not let out water!’ but, my little sinkhopper, you must realise that the practicality of this sink is low.  Imagine, you have muddy arms, and the water is getting everywhere.  Where are the proper sink lines to stop it?  What about your kitten that sits in your sink that you blog about?  How could the kitty get a beauty sleep in a slide? Kit-napped away by porcelain-features.  I will rate this in two categories. Practicality 5/10, and looks, 9/10.  If you have a designer-esqe home, then it’ll fit in, but if you have 3 kids and 2 pets and a family home, this sink is probably not for you.

WASHINGTON (AP) — For a president criticized as overly cautious and reluctant to lead, Barack Obama is taking a huge risk. He is thrusting U.S. fighting forces into a growing military operation with clear dangers, unknown costs, an indefinite length and unpredictable consequences.

After years of resistance, the president who wanted to end America’s wars will now oversee a sweeping airstrike campaign in both Iraq and Syria, a country mired in an intractable civil war. He’s sending hundreds more U.S. troops to Iraq to help train security forces there. And he’s pressing Congress for authority to pour U.S. weaponry into Syria to strengthen opposition forces fighting both the Islamic State militants and President Bashar Assad’s government.

All three are precisely the scenarios Obama has assiduously sought to avoid.

For now, the public is with him, with polls showing wide support for airstrikes in Iraq and Syria even as Obama’s own approval ratings slump and his foreign policy ratings sink to near record lows.

“This is America’s leadership at its best,” Obama declared in his address to the nation, as if to answer critics even in his own party who complain he has been too slow to act.

But as determined as Obama sounded Wednesday night, his resolve could be sorely tested by the uncertainties of war and the threat of Americans being killed or captured. “Any time we take military action,” Obama said, “there are risks involved, especially to the servicemen and women who carry out these missions.”

White House critics have argued for years that Obama’s reluctance to take the steps he announced Wednesday reflected a president who prioritized his legacy as a commander in chief who ended wars over warnings about the threat that was building in the Middle East. As a result, critics say he contributed to creating the conditions that allowed the Islamic State militants to thrive and move freely across the border between Iraq and Syria.

“The president is a rather reluctant commander in chief,” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Wednesday, echoing the comments of other Republicans responding to a vexing foreign policy crisis that is reaching fever pitch just weeks before November’s midterm elections.

While Obama’s advisers dispute the assertions of their critics, there is little doubt that the president now feels a need to reverse course after resisting the tug of the Middle East.

“If left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond that region, including to the United States,” he said in a statement made all the more striking given that it came on the eve of the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Obama put no timetable on how long U.S. airstrikes could last, though administration officials have warned that the campaign could be lengthy. Other elements of the president’s plan also appeared certain to take months, if not years — most notably his call for Congress to authorize the Pentagon to train and arm Syrian rebels to help them fight the Islamic State extremists.

Even with a sustained military campaign likely to consume much of the remainder of his presidency, Obama emphasized that the mission would be far different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that he inherited from his predecessor, George W. Bush. Obama has insisted he will not send American ground troops into combat in Iraq or Syria and the U.S. is not establishing large-scale military bases in either country.

Instead, the president tried to equate his new strategy to long-running U.S. counterterrorism campaigns in Yemen and Somalia, where his administration has been launching drone strikes against terror targets. But there are important differences, starting with the fact that it marks the first time since 9/11 that a U.S. president has authorized the bombing of terror targets in another nation without seeking permission or at least notifying it in advance.

And unlike in Yemen and Somalia, Obama is sending U.S. troops into Iraq to assist with the mission. Over the course of the summer, he has authorized the deployment of more than 1,500 U.S. troops to advise and assist the Iraq’s besieged security forces, conduct intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance flights, and bolster security at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.

Obama’s strategy was welcomed by some congressional Republicans who have long pressed him to take more aggressive action. But they made clear that he had catching up do after unveiling a strategy that they say came too late.

“A president who has made ending the war on terrorism the central focus of his foreign policy must now make winning it a priority,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said.

Obama Takes Big Risks In Wider Airstrikes

I remembered the day you breathed your last. I remembered holding your hand, wrapping your cold, clammy fingers with the warmth of my palm. My eyes on the machine, your blood pressure undetectable, your heart rate sinking…I do not want to remember you this way, Daddy, but the most painful memories seem to have the most impact on me. I do pray that someday soon, I will only have good memories of you - laughing, talking, singing…memories that are as fresh as yesterday and not as faded as a sepia photograph from bygone days. I miss you. Con todo mi amor, Papa.


French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday launched a fresh salvo against a scathing memoir written by his former partner, saying he had been particularly “hurt” by claims he secretly despises the poor. Valerie Trierweiler claimed in the book that the Socialist leader jokingly referred to the destitute as “toothless” in private. In the memoir, entitled “Thank You for the Moment”, Trierweiler writes that Hollande “portrayed himself as the man who doesn’t like the rich. In an interview with Le Nouvel Observateur, the Socialist president defended his commitment to the needy as he struggles to stop his popularity ratings from sinking to new depths.

if these spoilers were true (which i still honestly do not believe) then Glee would get yanked before it could even hope to reach 13 episodes. 
with the dozens upon dozens of posts ive seen of people proclaiming to not watch any part of this Glee’s already dismal ratings will sink to the point where Fox will have no choice but to cancel it.
of this i am certain. 
so here’s some good news, if it were true it wouldn’t be on TV for very long.
