MARANA, Ariz. -- Already a year of wacky weather on the PGA Tour, this might have topped it all -- snow. The opening round of the Match Play Championship was suspended Wednesday when a cold rain that came down sideways quickly gave way to snow from a winter storm that dumped close to 2 inches on Dove Mountain in just over an hour. (Snip)Ten matches had not even started when players were called off the course as slush was starting to form on the greens. Two hours later, The Ritz-Carlton Club was a blanket of snow as

Temp dipped to 33 degrees. In Arizona. In the daytime.

McIlroy and Tiger didn´t get off a shot.

AGW is a scientific and financial fraud.

Al Gore and Cronies are selling the junk [ like drug dealers ] ; the low information buyers of the junk are now poor and stupid.

Al has his various mansions [ one at sea level ] and private jets : like PT Barnum said : a sucker is born every minute.

These should be avoidable Measles has made a comeback, at least in New York City, where as many as 19 cases have been confirmed. New York City isn’t an anomaly, though. Diseases that are and have been avoidable in the U.S. thanks to vaccines, are resurfacing all across the country. Measles, for instance, was considered wiped out in 2000, but there have been several outbreaks in the past few years.

According to authorities, the body of L´Wren Scott was discovered hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant around 10 a.m. in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. Preliminary reports suggest a suicide and foul play is not suspected; however, the medical examiner will determine a cause of death.

A plunge in U.S. preschool
obesity? Not so fast, experts say
Reuters, by Sharon Begley    Original Article
Posted By: SoCalGal- 3/16/2014 4:50:46 PM     Post Reply
If the news last month that the prevalence of obesity among American preschoolers had plunged 43 percent in a decade sounded too good to be true, that´s because it probably was, researchers say. When the study was published in late February in the Journal of the American Medical Association, no one had a ready explanation for that astounding finding by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(Snip) Anti-obesity campaigners credited everything from changes to the federal nutrition program for low-income women and children to the elimination of trans-fats from fast food, more physical activity in child-care

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

RAMALLAH, West Bank — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas only faces bad options, from his perspective, as he heads into a White House meeting Monday with President Barack Obama. He could accept a U.S.-proposed framework for an Israeli-Palestinian partition deal, he could reject it or he could agree to extend negotiations. Here´s a look at what´s ahead. WHAT DO THE PALESTINIANS EXPECT TO BE IN THE FRAMEWORK? U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hasn´t presented a written proposal, but Abbas aides say they expect it to contain the following. It would endorse the Palestinian position that the border between Israel and a future Palestine would be based on Israel's 1967 frontier,

The Oakland Raiders´ offseason went from curious, probably disappointing, to a flat out debacle. Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold, the team´s big free-agent acquisition at $42.5 million, failed his physical and his contract was voided. The team announced that, according to many Bay Area beat reporters. According to ESPN´s Adam Schefter, the Raiders had concerns about his shoulder. The Rams, who were Saffold´s team his first four years, had no such concerns (there are no set standards for NFL physicals) and almost immediately after the Raiders´ announcement agreed with Saffold on a five-year deal. Unbelievable. At least the Raiders get their

DORAL, Fla. — After three holes Sunday, Tiger Woods had hit two spectators, one lake ... and one fairway. On the sixth hole, he was reaching for his back. On 11, one of the caddies had to take his ball out of the cup for him. Sunday used to be his day to dust the field. Now he’s just trying to finish 18 holes, which he at least managed to do for the first time in a PGA Tour event this year. No one wants to see it, but there it is.

Cartel head killed four years after

MEXICO CITY – Mexico´s government confirmed late Sunday that the leader of the Knights Templar Cartel was killed in an early-morning shootout with troops despite being declared dead by authorities in 2010. Tomas Zeron, head of the criminal investigation unit for the federal Attorney General´s Office, said the identity of Nazario Moreno Gonzalez had been confirmed 100 percent by fingerprints, but added that tests would continue. Moreno´s death was one of the more bizarre twists in Mexico´s assault on drug cartels, in which two others of the country´s most powerful capos have been captured in the last year without a shot fired.

Malaysia Airlines flight 370 vanished after climbing to a cruising altitude of 35,000 feet between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing in the early hours of Saturday, but search teams have still not been able to make any confirmed discovery of wreckage in seas beneath the plane´s flight path almost 48 hours after it took off.

In sports, and maybe in life, if you’re really good, sometimes you create the monster that kills you. Other people see what you did to succeed and they copy it, weeding out your flaws along the way. They might not ever be quite as good as you, but they’re definitely good enough to beat you as you decline. This is the way the world is supposed to work. It’s evolution in action. And evolution has caught up to Tiger Woods. Tiger is 38 now. Thirty-eight! That doesn’t seem possible. It seems like last weekend that he destroyed the field at

Only days later, it seemed that nearly every person with political ambitions in his Los Angeles district has said they are thinking about running for the seat, which hasn´t been in contention for decades. Here´s a list of the top people who have either already started a campaign for the seat or have at least failed at Shermanesque equivocation.

I didn’t watch Obama’s State of the Union address last night. Unlike prior years where I had live feeds and extensive coverage. Instead, I listened to IN-A-GADDA-DA-SOTU. I did peek at Twitter a couple of times, but not long enough to turn into a pillar of salt. Reading the headlines and tweets today, there aren’t any of them that couldn’t have been written before the speech. Not watching was surprisingly refreshing. A field trip away from the asylum. Amazing, actually.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied.

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
