Christmas.com, the Official Site of Christmas, released today a high-tech Naughty or Nice list along with a new website and gifting engine targeted to consumers who want to share Christmas with friends and family. The Santa-lyzer analyzes public comments, Twitter updates, and Facebook posts using a technology called sentiment analysis. Initial results found that President Obama had a nice-ness factor of 58.9% vs. 50.36% for former-Governor Mitt Romney.

In re-launching Christmas.com, we wanted to make things easier for people as they enter the busiest time of year, said John Lyotier of Christmas.com. However, we also wanted to make it easier for Santa to determine who has been naughty and who has been nice. This is where Sentiment Analysis comes in.
Sentiment analysis uses natural language processing, computational linguistics, and text analytics to identify and extract subjective information in source materials. In other words, when a person speaks or writes something, their output is an emotional communication to the reader or listener. The analysis of President Obama and former-Governor Romney included the transcripts of the three Presidential Debates, their respective speeches at the Democratic and Republican nominations, and the public Tweets from their official campaign Twitter accounts.
Continued Lyotier, In addition to analyzing the two Presidential candidates, we also looked at the public tweets of more than 30 other public figures: from Eva Longoria (who was rated the nicest), to SnoopDogg (middle of the pack), to Bill Maher (lowest). While our Santa-lyzer indicated that Romney is naughtier than Obama, both candidates were found to be naughtier than 29 of the other 32 people that were analyzed.
The Santa-lyzer is available for everyone to check where they are on Santas naughty list at Christmas.com.

Rep. Darrell Issa discusses Attorney General Eric Holder’s testimony and the investigation into the Justice Department’s “Operation Fast and Furious”. An operation which deliberately let operatives of Mexican drug cartels purchase guns at licensed US firearms dealers and did nothing to intercept the gun purchaser or retrieve the guns even when they were under active surveillance by federal law enforcement officials.

Anyone in the market for a Valentine should look for a lefty. Lefties tend to have looks, brains, creativity and empathy – very important qualities in a lover. Plus, they are romantic – more emotional than strictly rational. Warm and funny (many comedians are lefty), musical, and spatially perceptive, left-handers can provide the ideal complement to a less emotional, logical, right-handed mate.
Lefties can be very physical – from top left-handed athletes to left-handed performers and comedians, lefties communicate with and understand nuances of movement and gesture better than many right-handers. Often more visual than analytical, many lefties rely on facial and bodily cues to read what’s going on around them, as well as what other people intend. Similarly, they communicate eloquently with body language – through expression, eye contact, even through musical instruments. The ranks of both comedians and psychiatrists, as well as baseball pitchers and tennis players, are famously loaded with lefties.
Even more crucial than physical attraction and enjoyable companionship, the most basic and ancient requirement in a mate is that they be a good provider. Its no accident that a great number of world leaders are now, and have been since the time of lefty Alexander the Great, left-handers. As Melissa Roth explains the The Left Stuff, left-handers have a spatio-temporal understanding rooted in a more developed right hemisphere of the brain, that has led to higher than average representation among world leaders. From Emperor Julius Caesar to President Barack Obama, Napoleon to Netanyahu, left-handers have literally ruled the world. These leaders can both see the results of strategies as they play out in the future, and project the vision needed to lead.
Film-makers and artists, performers and presidents, movie stars and geniuses (like Albert Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci), lefties are not often shy. Though their numbers are small, their influence is mighty. Right-handers especially look for a lefty to be their Valentine, and keep life interesting.
Lefties and their Valentines can find an extensive selection of Valentine’s Day gifts for lefties at Lefty’s in Pier 39, San Francisco, in the Marketplace at Downtown Disney, Walt Disney World Resorts, Orlando, and at Old Town Kissimmee, FL, and, of course, on-line at http://www.thelefthandstore.com.
