It´s a mog´s life: Puppy is
adopted by Siamese cat after
being rejected by natural mother

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/7/2013 7:59:41 AM

Hope, a three-week-old Shih Tzu, was rejected by her natural mother, Diamond, after being born alongside a stillborn sibling. But the puppy has found a new mum in feline Coco - who gave birth to a litter of three kittens on the same day as Hope was born. Loving Coco treats Hope like one of her own - and even feeds her. Coco´s owner Paula Ball, of Liverpool, persuaded partner David Cohen, who owns Diamond, to introduce the pair. ´I suggested it because there was no other option - the puppy wouldn´t have survived otherwise,´ she said.

Thank heavens for a good Awww! piece today. I need it!

(The headline writer mislabels the cat. Not a full Siamese--but beautiful anyway.)

Winter Olympics 2014: US athletes
warned not to wear team gear

The US Olympic Committee has advised athletes taking part in the upcoming Sochi Games to avoid wearing their uniforms or Team USA logos outside Olympic venues. The warning for American athletes not to advertise their nationality due to security concerns came in a memo from the committee, which prepared it with the advice of the State Department, officials said, confirming a report in the Wall Street Journal. State Department spokesman Marie Harf said "the US Olympic Committee, I think, had discussed with its athletes, as part of how to sort of stay safe and things to look out for as

Hand guns should be legalised and

The Ukip leader has said it is party policy for hand guns to be legalised and licensed in the UK despite being banned in the UK for the last 18 years. Mr Farage said the current ban on the guns, which were made illegal following the school shooting at Dunblane in 1996, was “ludicrous.” Speaking on LBC Radio Mr Farage said that it was Ukip policy to create a “proper licensing policy” and that people who kept hand guns responsibly locked up and had were willing to get an official license should “absolutely” be allowed them. Experts have said his

Winter whiteout carnage as massive

A massive pile up during a whiteout storm in Indiana on Thursday afternoon killed three people and injured more than 20 others. Chaotic scenes of jackknifed trailers and the mangled wreckage of cars packed across three lanes of the highway could be seen after visibility dropped to nearly zero at about 3.30pm. More than 40 vehicles, including semitrailers and cars, were involved in the deadly crash near Michigan City, but wintry conditions and the scale of the crash site slowed rescue efforts. One driver was still trapped in their car at 6.30pm, three hours after the crash happened, as rescue crews worked

Cutting benefits is a moral mission like

Conservative welfare reforms are part of an ´historic mission´ in the tradition of the fight to end slavery, Iain Duncan Smith claimed today. The Work and Pensions Secretary said his determination to cut benefits and get people back to work is like the work of William Wilberforce who campaigned for the end of the slave trade and Lord Shaftesbury, who enacted laws to protect women and children in Victorian factories. [Snip] And in a clear reference to the Channel 4 documentary Benefits Street, the Work and Pensions Secretary said that under Labour the ‘middle-class majority were largely unaware of the

Too old to be given cancer
treatment: NHS is ´writing off´

Pensioners with cancer are being written off as too old to treat, campaigners said yesterday. They cited figures showing survival rates for British patients aged 75 and over are among the worst in Europe. Young lung cancer sufferers are only 10 percent more likely to die within five years than their continental counterparts. But pensioners with the disease have 44 percent less chance of survival. The figure for stomach cancer--at 45 percent--is even worse. And Britons with prostate cancer are a fifth less likely to survive than Europeans if they are 85 and over. Just 43 percent live for five

   

 

  


 
Twitter mobs are confused, angry and stupid.
Police and employers should ignore them

To call Twitter a wild west is an understatement – it’s regressed far beyond that. We’re back to tribes and mob rule – with added speed and bloodlust. The inhabitants are confused and angry and move in swarms. You never know when they’ll suddenly swerve in unison and come at you. But how to deal with this random, terrifying phenomenon? Some hope we can get rid of it by civilising Twitter: introduce a basic justice system, swap the tribes for a sort of centralised government, perhaps move everyone on from hunter-gathering to nomadic farming. This might take a while.

Michelle Obama admires ´Hanoi´ Jane

Michelle Obama´s decision to cite Jane Fonda as a woman she admires has caused a Republican backlash because of the actress´ left-wing activism. Fonda, who has been infamous since she took a trip to North Vietnam in 1972 and was pictured wearing a helmet and posing with a gun during the war which was taken as an insult to American troops, was one of two actresses that she said she looks up to as she thinks about growing older. [Snip] (And) there´s Jane Fonda, a beautiful, engaged, politically savvy, sharp woman,´ Mrs Obama said in an interview with People Magazine

New Yorkers with musophobia--the fear of rats--should look away now. The irrational fear of rats, in New York City where there are an estimated two times as many rats are there are people, may not seem so crazy after a look at the New York City Health Department´s Rat Information Portal, or RIP. The dense human population means rats thrive in New York, roaming city streets by night, hanging out in subway tunnels and feasting on curbside garbage. To discover the extent to which any neighborhood or building is infested, residents and businesses can look at raw data gathered by

Your tax dollars at work:

The Obamas and Bidens spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on three separate vacation trips during last year´s President´s Day weekend, records show. The total tab for the U.S. Secret Service came to at least $295,437. President Barack Obama spent that weekend golfing in West Palm Beach, Florida with Tiger Woods´ former coach, and appeared briefly with the golf superstar. [Snip] The watchdog group Judicial Watch obtained records from the Secret Service through a Freedom of Information Act request, learning that the cost of protecting the president that weekend came to $98,135.79. That total included $32,406.50 for flights, $16,466.25

COLUMBIA--A law that allows for concealed weapons permit holders to take their weapons into restaurants that serve alcohol and bars easily passed the South Carolina House of Representatives on Thursday. The 90-18 vote came amid some backlash in the Lowcountry, as many bar and restaurant owners and managers were finding out about the new law. [Snip] Many restaurant managers in Charleston have been greeted by yellow cards labeled, "No Lead with My Drink Please" in protest. If they hope to stop the law, they´ll now have to lobby Gov. Nikki Haley--who has a concealed weapons permit.

What’s so great about Zulu? To answer that question properly, you need to pass this test first. 1) Do you know Men of Harlech off by heart? 2) Can you name at least half of the 11 Victoria Cross winners in the film (by their nicknames where possible) without resorting to Google? 3) Have you ever found yourself stirred to ridiculous feelings of patriotism by John Barry’s magnificent film score on the morning commute? I really hope someone else answers “yes” to all three, otherwise you can chalk me up as a lone madman. Zulu--released 50 years ago this week--is

The Democrats´ new much-vaunted master plan for annihilating the Tea Party movement calls for aggressive class warfare, demagoguery, and lying about the beliefs, motives, and goals of Tea Party supporters, Sen. Chuck Schumer revealed yesterday. Echoing President Obama´s infamous "bitter clingers" remarks, the New York Democrat argued that Tea Party supporters are cartoonish figures who are easily ridiculed. Invoking all the usual liberal cliches about conservatives, Schumer said the Tea Party is successor to "the Know-Nothings, Prohibitionists, Father Coughlin, and Huey Long." In other words, he believes the movement is a collection of hicks, yahoos, neo-Luddites, fascists, male chauvinists, and racists fearful

Mitt Romney, Republican Party´s 2012 presidential nominee, on Friday fueled the talk that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will join the 2016 GOP race, along with several others including embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich. Ruling out another run during a "Today" show interview, Romney also said that likely Democratic presidential challenger Hillary Clinton is beatable “because I think people recognize that the country is just not doing what it needs to do.” In waving off a third bid, Romney said, “This is a time for Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Mike Pence, John Kasich,

Politics: The Obama administration has turned the executive branch loose on its enemies — part of a disturbing and unprecedented trend toward delegitimizing political differences and marginalizing conservatives. Behind the special status of his presidency, President Obama has used the machinery of government to harass and intimidate political opponents — to an extent greater even than former Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, both threatened with impeachment. Consider these recent events, courtesy of the Ace of Spades blog: • Attorney General Eric Holder´s Southern District of New York office has indicted conservative author, activist and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza — producer of the critical

Hillary Clinton was nodding solemnly to the mother of a 9/11 victim when Huma Abedin, standing across the room, called out, “Let’s load!” to the staff members and bodyguards. The former secretary of state had yet to pick up her award from the Voices of September 11th, but her entourage was already preparing to shuttle her off to the next event, a benefit for God’s Love We Deliver, which was co-hosted by the designer Michael Kors and where she would sit next to the Vogue editor and former Obama bundler Anna Wintour.

Maybe it’s because “Bubba” just doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi as the “Gipper,” but Bill Clinton is apparently jealous of the reverence Republicans give former president Ronald Reagan. According to the much-talked-about New York Times Magazine feature story on the world around Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton, the former president is described as miffed that Democrats don´t treat him like Republicans do Reagan. Amy Chozick reports: “People close to Bill Clinton have told me repeatedly that it irks them that Democrats don’t talk about the dignified, slimmed-down, silver-haired former president with the same reverence Republicans give Ronald Reagan.” Her story,

Attorney General Eric Holder reiterated his 2009 claim that Americans are a “nation of cowards” on racial issues on Thursday. Holder’s effort to profile the entire nation as cowards came during a friendly interview with the University of Virginia’s Miller Center, where was asked if he would take back his 2009 remarks. “I would not take that back,” he replied. As usual, Holder did not brave questions from the audience or from other reporters in the room. In 2009, Holder claimed that “though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we

Free Speech: The IRS scandal is not only not over but is getting worse, with a call by New York´s senior senator for the already-politicized agency to use its power to tax to destroy the conservative grass-roots movement. Arguing that the Supreme Court´s 2010 Citizens United decision allowed Tea Party groups to "funnel millions of undisclosed dollars into campaigns with ads that distort the truth and attack government," Charles Schumer wants the IRS and other government agencies to take on the Tea Party through their administrative powers.

Want to know why Wendy Davis will have trouble winning higher office in Texas or anywhere else in America? It’s not because she stretched the truth in her “from mobile-home-living single mom to Harvard Law grad” campaign biography, nor because her husband paid for her education, nor even because she placed a lot of value on her career. Nope: It’s because Davis, the Lone Star State senator who became famous for her filibuster of an abortion-limiting bill in Texas, lost custody of her children to her ex-husband. This revelation about Davis’ past, which came to light thanks to reporting by Wayne Slater

Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden says he wants to return to the U.S. to resolve his standoff with American authorities over classified data he leaked last year, but that he can’t do so until he can be sure he’ll get a fair trial. “Returning to the U.S., I think, is the best resolution for the government, the public, and myself, but it’s unfortunately not possible in the face of current whistleblower protection laws, which through a failure in law did not cover national security contractors like myself,” he said in a live online chat Thursday. Snowden said that unless the law changes,
