Carnival #136

Welcome to Carnival #136. Hard to believe. Although we aren't quite to that point yet, temperatures in the Ohio blogosphere are sure to rise as we enter the homestretch of the election in this pivotal state. That is just how it goes. Well maybe not for everyone, but for some of us that will be the case. Which leads me to my numerical tie in. The hottest temperature ever recorded was back in September of 1922 in Al 'Aziziyah, Libya. Of course, that record is 136 degrees. I don't get hot easily, but that might be a tad too much for me.

The posts:

First up this week is the The Ohio Republic. According to Harold Thomas's first post, Ohioans led the charge against the now failed bailout. Then with a follow up post, Harold explains why the country needs to hold strong against said bailout because while there may be serious dislocations, it is more important to get it right.

Just Blowing Smoke had thoughts on the bailout as well. What is next, the post at one point wonders. Will the federal bureaucracy be allowed to continue on this path of expansion? Well as of late Wednesday, the answer looks like yes.

Attorneys representing Mike Connell, trusted cyber adviser for the Bush family and various Republican causes, have every reason to delay their client's testimony until after the November election, John Spinelli of ePluribus Media says. Next, are there holes in the petition process for two of the statewide ballot issues?

The CEA Blog checks in with a post that says that charter schools enroll over 9,000 Columbus City Schools students. That is 15% of the potential district enrollment. The post goes on, with charts and graphs, to breakdown the ratings of the charter schools.

Yes or No on Issue 5? Glass City Jungle takes a look at it from both angles (Issue 5 is about the pay day lenders). Next, the Toledo Blade writes two articles on the race factor - and LisaRenee does some historical fact checking.

Where is State School Board member John Bender and why does he seem to lack public responsibility and accountability? That is what Roland Hansen Commentary wants to know. This is a follow up to an August post at RHC; the absence of Bender at a recent event got Roland thinking about it again.

A video camera was ended up being the main story the other night in Delaware County at a scheduled debate between Pat Tiberi and his challenger David Robinson. Kelley of For Whom the Bell Tolls thinks her decision to tape her own debate last year may have stirred up events.

Three entries this week from Daniel Jack Williamson at Buckeye Rino. First, a post that relates to early voting and candidates in the Oberlin College area. Next up, this blogger weighs in on two statewide issues. Yes on 5 (pay day lending), No on 6 (casino gambling) is the recommendation. Lastly, a lengthy post from DJW about his recent appearance on PBS about the Ohio blogosphere.

The redesigned Conservative Culture also has three posts this week. The first post is about a corn maize in the design of Sarah Palin's head by an Ohio farmer. Tying in with Governor Palin, John Husted pushes vouchers for special needs children, a bill opposed by Ohio Governor Strickland. The third entry is an ad by Mike Crites in his race against Rich Cordray for Attorney General. This ad is a take off on the latest Mac ads.

Lastly, two submissions from The Point. I lay out why I think voting over a month before Election Day is irresponsible. Kyle has a post that features the first reelection television spot for Russ Pry, the Democrat who is currently the Summit County Executive.

The best method of trying to determine whether Sedu or CHI make the best flat iron is to collate and analyze the complaints made by real consumers.ghd uk Sometimes, it's better to compare complaints rather than comparing glowing recommendations, partly because one isn't always sure if the recommendation is by a genuine person, and also, because 'glowing recommendations' tend to be non-specific whereas complaints usually are.ghd hair The complaints and comments were garnered all the comments for both flat irons made to folica.com between Jan 2006 and July 2006. chi for sale I used this as my source as this was the largest collection of flat iron reviews I could find.ghd hair salonThe top complaints made by those who bought a CHI flat iron:- poor quality control (brand new ones don't work, they stop heating after a few months, stop working after a few minutes of use, got too hot and melted the plastic housing)- tends to snag your hair.ghd hair straightener The edges of the CHI flat iron are not rounded and this led to hair being snagged.- older models had no heat control whereas Sedu flat irons have an adjustable temperature settings. This perhaps could be ignored as new versions of CHI flat irons now have fully controllable temperature setting.- hair straightening took too long. chi for sale Other brands like Corioliss and GHD were reported as being much quicker at straightening hair.
