" But by Monday, the four videos and the account had been taken down from the site. But the videos were back up on YouTube later under a different but similarly named account.

Just what I need - a new Internet addiction. An online friend (known only as b1os) had posted some pictures of some really remarkable looking dishes. When I asked where the recipes came from, he said “Alain Passard.” Oh, of course, been there , done that . Great cook; great book. No, he said, from his online videos and he sent a link to the website of the French magazine Le Point. And a treasure trove of short cooking videos by one of my favorite chefs. The videos are rustic in the extreme - refreshing in a world where chefs seem to be made as much on the production set as they are in the kitchen.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Good news for skateboarding dogs everywhere: You can now embed Instagram videos and photos across the Web. Last month when Instagram launched video to compete with Twitter's Vine, there was a collective groan. It lacked a key feature: the ability to embed videos elsewhere on the Web. So, just to make their visual moments much more visible, crafty people came up with all kinds of complicated workarounds that were not supported by Instagram and could, of course, break at any time.

A 2-year-old Weimaraner whose alleged abuse at the hands of its 17-year-old owner was posted to social media has been placed in a new home. The teen, who hasn't been named because he is a minor, was charged Wednesday with four felony counts of animal cruelty after prosecutors say he made several videos of himself abusing the dog and then posted them on a social media site. Prosecutors did not specify the type or nature of alleged abuse. The dog, renamed Charlie, has since been removed from the teen's family and placed in an adoptive home, according ot Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

WASHINGTON - Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock, preparing for the upcoming Supreme Court decision on healthcare reform, covered all of his bases in preparing four videos to respond to various potential verdicts - but his cover was blown when his campaign accidentally uploaded all four to his YouTube account. Oh, that simple-to-use technology. In what can be described as a contingency plan gone wrong, Mourdock's YouTube channel was meant to host one video depending on next week's ruling: If the court ruled in favor of President Obama's healthcare reform law, if it struck down some provisions but preserved others, if it ruled the entire law unconstitutional, and if the court's ruling is inconclusive.

What's hot: Get video tours of the hostel's living room, computer hub, bunk beds, kitchen and more before you decide which hostel is right for you. The videos help the properties come to life — as opposed to seeing only property photos. Some videos also offer local tips and attractions. Keep your eye out for the Wi-Fi logo if that's important to you. What's not: You have to leave the website to book the hostel after you fall in love with the property on the video. But that does give you the opportunity to book it on a website that you may already know, such as Hostels.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman on Tuesday illustrated one of the time-tested adages of politics: When you have nothing left to lose, it is time to take the low road and attack -- but always aim high. In separate videos, Paul, the darling of the libertarian movement, and Republican Huntsman, who is pitching himself as the thinking man's conservative, went after Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, respectively. Perry ranks at the top of most polls, having displaced Romney, who was formerly No. 1 in the race for the GOP nomination to face President Obama.
