Are you looking forward to "The Dark Knight  ises"? Well the hype begins with the interactive website.  Warner Bros launched the official website for “The Dark Knight Rises,” which opens in 2D and IMAX theaters everywhere on July 20th. The official site includes ticket-buying links, a synopsis of the sequel, a photo gallery, soundtrack information, trailers, various downloads and more.  Also, check out the facebook page.


What are the states most in danger of Red Light Running? ...I know it's random that I ask you that but here goes.

Riskiest Red-Light Running States

For residents of California, Florida, Maryland and Texas, the July 4th travel period ranks as the riskiest holiday travel period of the year for red-light running, according to research from the National Coalition for Safer Roads (NCSR). The Safer Roads Report 2012: Trends in Red-Light Running ranks the most dangerous holiday travel periods for intersection safety. The Fourth of July came in a close second overall behind Memorial Day as the worst holiday for road safety, with more than 25,000 red-light running violations during the Fourth of July travel period in 2011. Although July 4th ranked second highest overall, it’s the top-ranked holiday travel period for red-light running in California, Florida, Maryland and Texas.

 

  • California – 42.6% more red-light violations occur during the Fourth of July travel period than the lowest ranked holiday travel period in the state (Super Bowl).
  •  
  • Florida – 39% more red-light violations occur during the Fourth of July travel period than the lowest ranked holiday travel period in the state (Christmas).
     
  • Maryland – 38% more red-light violations occur during the Fourth of July travel period than the lowest ranked holiday travel period in the state (Super Bowl).
  •  
  • Texas – 37.8% more red-light violations occur during the Fourth of July travel period than the lowest ranked holiday travel period in the state (Super Bowl).
  •  
  • A departure from the overall trend was found in Arizona. The 4th of July travel period ranked lowest in red-light violations when compared to all other holiday travel periods in Arizona.

Joey Chestnut Takes 6th Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Title
Competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut won his sixth consecutive Nathan’s Famous hot dog eating contest yesterday in New York. Chestnut was the champion of the men’s event after downing 68 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes – tying his record from 2009 – while Sonya “Black Widow” Thomas set a new record for the women’s contest by eating 45 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. “I feel pretty damn good,” Chestnut said after winning the annual contest. “I’d do this for free.” Thomas, whose victory was her second in as many years, said she had a special inspiration to set the record. “I’m 45 this year,” she said. “I wanted to eat my age.”
