After five years of working with Google, NORAD has switched to Microsoft Bing to track Santa’s sleigh ride this Christmas Eve.
That hasn’t stopped Google from continuing to monitor Santa on its own.
NORAD, or the North American Aerospace Defense Command, thinks it has the most sophisticated system for watching the Big Guy. It uses “four high-tech systems to track Santa—radar, satellites, Santa Cams and fighter jets.”
BEIJING — The daughter of a former general who led a military coup in South Korea became the first female president following a tight race against an opponent who called for more peaceful persuasion in dealing with communist North Korea.
Park Geun Hye, 60, the daughter of former leader Park Chung Hee, defeated Moon Jae In, 59, a lawmaker once jailed in the 1970s for opposing her father’s dictatorial regime. She replaces President Lee Myung Bak, a member of her conservative party.
This clip will give every parent — wait, every single person who watches it — a chill. However, questions being raised about the video’s veracity.
It starts innocently enough by showing a beautiful Golden Eagle circling the blue skies above a park in Montreal.
For the non-bird watchers among us, according to National Geographic, the Golden Eagle is the largest bird of prey in North America. The bird typically feeds on ground squirrels and rabbits. Nat Geo also reports that the Golden Eagle has the ability to strike with amazing speed: “They are extremely swift, and can dive upon their quarry at speeds of more than 150 miles per hour.”

In a choice likely to surprise few, Time magazine has named the newly re-elected President Obama as its Person of the Year for building through his winning coalition a presidency that “spells the end of the Reagan realignment that had defined American politics for 30 years.”
“We are in the midst of historic cultural and demographic changes, and Obama is both the symbol and in some ways the architect of this new America,” wrote Time’s editor, Rick Stengel, in the new issue. He concluded: “For finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union, Barack Obama is Time’s 2012 Person of the Year.”

Boston CBS station WBZ reported has reported that Massachusetts Democrats are seriously considering wooing Affleck to run for the seat. Before you write this off as crazy, note that Affleck is a noted liberal who has demonstrated wide knowledge on a range of issues on multiple occasions (see his appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher and marvel). In fact, on Wednesday, Affleck testified at a House Armed Services Committee hearing about security issues in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. (He’s the founder of the Eastern Congo Initiative and has spoken on the subject before. He’s picture above with Cindy McCain at the hearing.)
According to the Daily Caller, Affleck met with Kerry during his visit to Capitol Hill.
There’s also this to consider: Affleck’s publicist Shawn Sachs, who has worked with the actor for about five years, isn’t denying the report. When Movieline asked him to comment on the report, Sachs replied that he was with Affleck “working on Congo efforts” and “That’s all we’re talking about today.”
