The Mercury's Community Media Lab Opens Friday

Pottstown will be host of what could be a big part of the future of journalism: a Community Media Lab.

The Mercury will hold a grand opening Friday for the Community Media Lab, a first for Pennsylvania and one of the first-of-its-kind facilities in the entire nation.

The Community Media Lab is a state-of-the-art open newsroom project of Digital First Media, a pioneering communications company. 

The public is invited to attend the grand opening between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at The Mercury, which is located at the intersection of Hanover and King streets in Pottstown. 

From a Mercury article announcing the event:
The new lab is one of 10 “open door” community projects announced earlier this year by Digital First Media, which manages Journal Register Co., The Mercury’s parent company.

It will offer public access to newspaper archives, free Wi-Fi and use of computers in a coffeehouse atmosphere.

In the future, wall space in the lab will be available for student art displays, community group forums, political debates and workshops on blogging, writing resumés, job searches and producing videos, said Mercury editor Nancy March.

“The Community Media Lab is an extension of an initiative we started two years ago with our Town Square blogging network, and with this joint opening, it now involves downtown business,” she said.
The Mercury’s Community Media Lab opens on Friday

Majority of Pa. voters have valid photo ID

Facts proponents of voter fraud (aka the Democratic Party) don't want you to know: 9 out of 10 registered voters in Pennsylvania have a valid ID and many of the people who claim they don't have valid ID have not voted in any election in the past 4-5 years and are considered inactive voters. Some of them may also be deceased, but that's never stopped the Democratic Party from getting their people to the polls in the past.

Funny email about Obamacare

An email that's been making the rounds:

The medical profession evaluates Obama's new health care package:
The Allergists were in favor of scratching it, but the Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves. The Gastroenterologists had sort of a gut feeling about it, but the Neurologists thought the Administration had a lot of nerve. Meanwhile, Obstetricians felt certain everyone was laboring under a misconception, while the Ophthalmologists considered the idea shortsighted. Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while the Pediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!" The Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while the Radiologists could see right through it. Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and the Internists claimed it would indeed be a bitter pill to swallow. The Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter." The Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but the Urologists were pissed-off at the whole idea. Anesthesiologists thought the whole idea was a gas, and those lofty Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no. In the end, the Proctologists won out, leaving the entire decision up to the assholes in Washington.

PA finishes fiscal year with $163M revenue shortfall

Pennsylvania collected $2.8 billion in General Fund revenue in June, which was $170.1 million, or 6.5 percent, more than anticipated, according to Secretary of Revenue Dan Meuser.

Despite the improved collections in June, the state finished the 2011-12 fiscal year, which ended June 30, slightly under projections.
Fiscal year 2011-12 General Fund collections totaled $27.7 billion, which was $162.8 million, or 0.6 percent, below estimate.

While the numbers missed the projections, the state's fiscal standing is much better than it was under former Gov. Ed Rendell, who ran up hundreds of millions of debt each year and left office with a $4.5 billion deficit.

Here's a recap of the June numbers from the Department of Revenue:
Sales tax receipts totaled $777.7 million for June, $45.5 million below estimate. Sales tax collections for the fiscal year totaled $8.8 billion, which was $15.8 million, or 0.2 percent, less than anticipated.
Personal income tax (PIT) revenue in June was $995.3 million, $25.7 million above estimate. This brought fiscal-year PIT collections to $10.8 billion, which was $199.1 million, or 1.8 percent, below estimate.
June corporation tax revenue of $651 million was $180.4 million above estimate. Fiscal-year corporation tax collections totaled $5 billion, which was $38.8 million, or 0.8 percent, above estimate.
Inheritance tax revenue for the month was $71.5 million, $4.9 million below estimate. This brought the fiscal-year total to $827.7 million, which was $10.4 million, or 1.2 percent below estimate.
Realty transfer tax revenue was $28.8 million for June, $300,000 above estimate, bringing the fiscal-year total to $292.2 million, which was $800,000, or 0.3 percent, more than anticipated.
Other General Fund tax revenue, including cigarette, malt beverage, liquor and table games taxes, totaled $139.1 million for the month, $400,000 below estimate and bringing the fiscal-year total to $1.5 billion, which was $1.6 million, or 0.1 percent, above estimate.
Non-tax revenue totaled $119.6 million in June, $14.4 million above estimate, bringing the fiscal-year total to $529.5 million, which was $21.3 million, or 4.2 percent, above estimate.
In addition to the General Fund collections, the Motor License Fund received $199.9 million for the month, $12.7 million above estimate. Fiscal-year collections for the fund – which include the commonly known gas and diesel taxes, as well as other licenses, fine and fee revenues – totaled $2.4 billion, which was $2.2 million, or 0.1 percent, below estimate.

Obama Chief Of Staff Struggles To Explain How ObamaCare Is Not A Tax

How Much Is the Obamacare ‘Tax’?

The Obama campaign is still claiming that the Obamacare tax is not really a tax even though the IRS has been charged with collecting it. From FactCheck.org, an independent, non-partisan organization:

How much will the “tax” penalty be for going without health insurance?

A: The minimum assessment will be $695 per person (but no more than $2,085 per family) in 2016, when fully phased in. The amount can be higher depending on income. But there are exemptions for low-income persons and others.

How Much Is the Obamacare 'Tax'?

FactCheck: No Evidence Romney Shipped Jobs Overseas

The Obama campaign has been caught in another lie. And independent analysis by FactCheck.org found no evidence of the Obama camp's claims that Mitt Romney shipped any U.S. jobs overseas.
