Tiger Woods Latest: Tiger and the Police, Rachel Uchitel claims ‘no contact’ with Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods latest: Tiger Woods and the police are reported to have met three days after his November 27th car accident in order to get his ticket.  This contradicts the account that Tiger Woods was involved in a violent altercation with his wife that left him with facial lacerations, a broken cheek bone, and missing teeth.

Furman Bisher, a world renowned sports caster published a letter he got from who he believes is a “credible” sports journalist that claims that Tiger was swept away to Arizona to have cosmetic surgery.  Of course, the Woods camp isn’t going to want to let this get out if it is true, and it’s highly unlikely that the true story will ever surface unless Tiger himself wants it told.  Being that he’s a very private individual, that is unlikely.

Although the accounts given by Furman Bisher make a lot of sense, there are many holes in the account, such as indication that Tiger’s neighbors didn’t note extensive injuries in their reports.

It’s also rumored that Tiger Woods and Rachel Uchitel remain in close contact even after the scandal broke. Some reporters even say that sources have indicated that Tiger and Rachel were seen together at a party in Palm Beach around Christmas.  It’s well known that Rachel Uchitel has been in Florida for the last few weeks, and there’s a lot of speculation that she’s there to see Woods.

Gloria Allred, Rachel Uchitel’s attorney, told gossip site Radar Online that Rachel has had no contact with Tiger Woods.  Her exact words were that her client has “had absolutely no contact with Tiger Woods for quite some time, and has not seen him or had any communication with him since she has been in Palm Beach.”

New Year’s Quotes: 2010 New Years Sayings and Quotes for You

New Year’s Quotes 2010: New Years sayings and quotes will help you give that toast on New Years Eve. The best quotes are timeless quotes, but there are also other sayings that work well only for the New Year.

Looking back, it’s been a crazy year.  From the death of Michael Jackson to the Tiger Woods scandal, 2009 will go down in history as a year like none other.  In addition, a bomb scare in Times Square threatened our nation and even threatened tonight’s planned festivities. Luckily, the scare was nothing.

Here are some of the best New Year’s Quotes and Sayings for 2010:

Youth is when you’re allowed to stay up late on New Year’s Eve.  Middle age is when you’re forced to. – Bill Vaughn

A New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. – Unknown

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.  ~Hal Borland

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850

Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore his last oath.  Today, we are a pious and exemplary community.  Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever.  ~Mark Twain

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.  ~Author Unknown

I do think New Year’s resolutions can’t technically be expected to begin on New Year’s Day, don’t you?  Since, because it’s an extension of New Year’s Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system.  Also dieting on New Year’s Day isn’t a good idea as you can’t eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover.  I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.  ~Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’s Diary

The only way to spend New Year’s Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel.  Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears.  ~W.H. Auden

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year.  It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes.  Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions.  Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.  ~G.K. Chesterton

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. – Bill Vaughn

“Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average, which means, you have met your New Year’s resolution.” ~Jay Leno

“A dog’s New Year’s Resolution: I will not chase that stick unless I actually see it leave his hand!” ~Unknown

Casey Anthony Update: Casey Could Face Death Penalty for Caylee Anthony’s Death

Casey Anthony update: Casey Anthony could face the death penalty if convicted of first degree murder of her daughter Caylee Anthony.  There are a lot of issues in the Casey Anthony case that are very peculiar, and those following the story of Casey and Caylee are anxiously waiting for the trial, which will take place sometime in 2010.

Casey Anthony was Caylee’s mother.  When the young girl disappeared, it was about a month before Casey alerted authorities that her daughter was missing.  During the time the baby girl was missing, her mother was seen partying it up and didn’t seem all that concerned with what is going on.

It wasn’t until about this time last year that the remains of a young girl were found near Casey Anthony’s parents home.  It was then revealed that the remains were that of Caylee.

Casey has been charged with 10 counts of fraud in addition to being charged with the first degree murder of her child. It is said that she wrapped the baby’s nose and mouth with duct tape and then left her in a swampy area to decay.  These indications are very disturbing, to say the least.

Recently, Casey Anthony’s defense tried to get the possibility of a death penalty thrown out. However, the motion was denied and the death penalty remains in play.

Florida has only put two women to death.  One woman was charged with killing a business man and was implicated in the disappearance of other men. Another woman is also known as the “Black Widow” and was charged with killing her husband in cold blood.  She also received a life sentence for drowning her son.

There is one other woman on death row, and she is charged with burying a couple alive. Whether or not Casey will receive the death penalty has yet to be seen.

Casey hasn’t seen her parents in over a year.  She’s all alone in jail.  Her trial is said to begin in the summer of 2010, although it’s going to be interesting to see where the trial will take place.  Those in the Florida area where the crime happened are very familiar with the case.  Then again, so is everyone in the country.

No matter the outcome of the trial, nothing will bring Caylee Anthony back to life.  The little girl that dazzled the world singing “You are my Sunshine” will remain nothing more than a memory.

Google Nexus One a $530 Android Style Phone

Google Nexus One: Google’s highly anticipated cell phone will allegedly be sold to the general public for $530 unlocked, or $180 with a two year plan.  The subsidized phone is only available through T-Mobile so customers using other cell phone providers will have to pay the full $530.  There is some indication that the phone which is manufactured by HTC will only work with GSM networks, meaning that Sprint and Verizon customers may not be able to use the phone.

Verizon customers, however, have access to the Motorola Android phone, which is one of the hottest phones on the market today. It uses Google’s Android operating system. Here are some good Android resources to look at:

Andriod Tips
Android Tips #2

According to Information Week, “Specs reported for the Nexus One mention Wi-Fi connectivity, a 5- or 6-megapixel camera, and a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen. Broadcom’s BCM4329 chip, also said to be included in the Nexus One, is capable of providing 802.11n, Bluetooth, and FM technologies.”

There is some word that the Nexus One will represent a unification of the Android phones.  Developers have had difficulties coming up with applications for the Android, as the differences in the phones made developing aps cumbersome. They have since returned to iPhone work.

The FCC is also said to be very pleased with the Google Nexus One, as it will show a diversion of exclusive deals between phone providers and phone companies. For instance, you can only get the iPhone on the AT&T Network and you can only get the BlackBerry Storm on the Verizon network.

Those pumped about the Google Nexus One will have to fork over $530 or they will have to sign a contract with T-Mobile. There will be hefty fees for early contract termination.

Tiger Woods Update and Latest: Alleged Mistress Rachel Uchitel Opens Ups and It’s Tiger Woods’ Birthday

Tiger Woods update and latest: Rachel Uchitel opened up today.  It’s also Tiger Woods’ birthday, which makes it a prime day for updates.  For the first time since being spotted in Palm Beach, Florida Rachel Uchitel has opened up to reporters.

If you want to know all the juicy details of the alleged affair and find out where Tiger really is, don’t count your chickens before they hatch! Rachel Uchitel, in a very Gloria Allred-ish move told reporters that she had “no comment” about their inquiries.

Frustrating, isn’t it? But remember, Uchitel is said to have received hush money from Woods, and that means she can’t really say too awful much.

Today is Tiger Woods’ 34th birthday. There are many rumors about where he may be spending the day, including a rehab facility in Arizona, recuperating from cosmetic surgery, or at a house near another world renowned golfer.

The Tiger Woods scandal all started shortly after The National Enquirer broke a story about Tiger Woods allegedly sleeping with New York VIP hostess Rachel Uchitel.  After that, a bizarre single vehicle accident took place on the day after Thanksgiving, prompting rumors that Elin Nordegren found out about the alleged affair and went berserk.

Tiger hasn’t been seen in public in about a month, and there’s no word of where he is. He’s taken an “indefinite leave” from golf and has even lost some of his sponsors.

Located in Central Park West, Tavern On The Green has been a NYC staple of high class and sophistication, but unfortunately has been hit by the poor economy.  The current owners filed for bankruptcy, and items from the iconic eatery will be auctioned off at Guernsey’s Auction House in New York on January 13 and 14, 2010.

Patrons who attend the New Year’s Eve festivities at Tavern On The Green to welcome in the New Year 2010 will enjoy a gourmet buffet dinner, champagne, open bar, music, and Central Park’s fireworks display.  They will also be able to say, “I was there for the final affair at Tavern On The Green,” reported a New Year’s Eve web site.
