Is this the world´s oldest teddy?
3,000-year-old mummified toy
found in Tutankhamun´s tomb

Daily Express [UK], by Dion Dassanayak

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 4/1/2014 4:22:36 AM

This ancient and priceless teddy bear could be the beloved childhood toy of Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun. Archaeologists unearthed a 3,000-year-old mummified teddy bear, believed to be the oldest in existence, at a tomb in Egypt. And it has led experts to believe the Ancient Egyptians not only cuddled up with the toys at night, but once worshipped their furry playthings. The landmark discovery marks the first time an Egyptian teddy bear has been discovered in perfect condition. The ancient toy was excavated in a funerary deposit in the Valley of the T’eds, near Luxor in Egypt.

Don´t forget what day this is.

I did forget. Thank you for reminding me. I was about to post the truth as I learned it but your reminder was the stopper.

A teddy bear in ancient Egypt! What next? A search for the iceberg that sank the Titanic?

The race to stop Las Vegas
from running dry
Telegraph [UK], by Nick Allen    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 6/29/2014 2:41:34 PM     Post Reply
Outside Las Vegas’s Bellagio hotel tourists gasp in amazement as fountains shoot 500ft into the air, performing a spectacular dance in time to the music of Frank Sinatra. Gondolas ferry honeymooners around canals modelled on those of Venice, Roman-themed swimming pools stretch for acres, and thousands of sprinklers keep golf courses lush in the middle of the desert. But, as with many things in Sin City, the apparently endless supply of water is an illusion. America’s most decadent destination has been engaged in a potentially catastrophic gamble with nature and now, 14 years into a devastating drought, it is on the verge

Isis and their so-called social media genius

Isis--the greatest social media users in the world. Marketing geniuses. Or so we are constantly told. The truth is, there is nothing surprising, or particularly difficult, about what they do. This group is, after all, comprised of predominantly young men in their twenties, many of whom have grown up in the West and will be completely at ease with Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. [Snip] They have even been tweeting pictures of cats holding guns, in a bizarre mash up of Internet and Jihadi culture. In their smartest coup, Isis released, on the Google Store, a now banned Android app called The Dawn of Glad Tidings.

Britain´s island story keeps ´Europe’ at bay

It might sound like a scene from Hamlet: “We go to gain a little patch of ground... which is not tomb and continent enough to hide the slain.” Was it necessary for David Cameron to fight over his little patch, in the form of Mr Juncker? [Snip] A Ruritanian grand duchy and a charming relic of the Holy Roman Empire, Luxembourg has done well to retain its independence in such a conflict-strewn region. Its principal industries are tourism and tax avoidance, and it is not a nursery of statesmen. In recent years, Gibraltar has produced more politicians who would be plausible members of a British Cabinet. In the early Eighties,

Paintings depicting the moment Charles Saatchi apparently throttled his former wife Nigella Lawson have emerged for sale, on his own art website. The couple divorced last year after Saatchi was seen with his hand around his wife’s neck as they sat outside Scott’s restaurant in Mayfair. [Snip] Pete Jones, 52, has listed ‘Last Course’ on the site – a picture of Miss Lawson with hands on her throat painted on a bread board - for £17,600. Another picture, painted by Jane Kelly and called Art Collector Throttling a Cook has a price tag of £1,170. Darren Udaiyan, 41, produced a Van Gogh style painting of the incident, which he uploaded to the site

U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner was in Moncks Corner earlier this month, according to a story posted Wednesday on The Berkeley Independent´s website. Abbie Brown of Brown´s BBQ got a phone call after the lunch rush on June 6 asking if someone special could come in for lunch. Boehner and his entourage of Capitol Police agents came in, and were later joined by former congressman Henry Brown, according to the story. Boehner had been in town to play golf earlier that day with the former congressman, the story said.

The game is up. No one will now believe that the United Kingdom can deliver a substantively different deal in Europe. The FCO´s ploy of doing a Harold Wilson--that is, making some piffling changes and presenting them as a significant new deal--has been discredited almost before it began. If David Cameron couldn´t prevent the appointment of Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Commission, no one will believe that he can deliver a more flexible EU, with more freedom of action for its member nations. I suspect this is one of those situations where normal people get the point more

How the Siege of Nepcote Green
turned the tables on the travellers

It was retired Army Major Del Henty who first raised the alarm. Spotting the convoy of caravans making its way through the West Sussex village of Findon towards its picturesque village green at around 2.45pm on Tuesday he knew trouble was brewing. The convoy turned out to be a group of travellers intent on pitching their caravans on Nepcote Green--where for 300 years a traditional sheep fair has been held each summer--for what could have turned out to be weeks, if not months. [Snip] Last year a larger group of travellers moved onto the green and caused what local residents and councillors

Britain has moved a step closer to leaving the European Union after David Cameron declared “war” on Brussels over the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker. [Snip] The result emboldened Eurosceptic MPs and Ukip supporters who want to leave the EU. However, Mr Cameron said he would wage a “long, tough fight” to reform Brussels before campaigning for Britain to remain in the EU in an in-out referendum he has promised to hold in 2017. The Prime Minister said the decision to nominate Mr Juncker, an arch-federalist facing questions about his drinking habits, represented “a sad day for the EU”.

House Speaker John Boehner´s lawsuit against him is just a ´stunt,´ President Barack Obama told ABC News anchor George Stephanopolous on Thursday. Obama said he´d already talked to the GOP legislator and that he told him,‘ "If you’re really concerned about me taking too many executive actions, why don’t you try getting something done through Congress?" ´ ´You´re going to squawk if I try to fix some parts of it administratively that are within my authority while you´re not doing anything?´ Obama said, referring to House Republicans.

Two student leaders at the University of Las Vegas have called on Hillary Clinton to return the $225,000 speaking fee she is expected to receive for delivering a keynote address at an upcoming event. UNLV student body president Elias Benjelloun and the student government’s public relations director Daniel Waqar appeared on a local talk show Friday, condemning UNLV´s foundation for paying Clinton an ´outrageous´ sum of money for speaking at a fundraiser in October. ‘We really appreciate anybody who would come to raise money for the university.

Actress Amy Adams traded her first class seat on a Detroit to Los Angeles flight with a soldier who had been booked in coach. Adams reportedly noticed the American serviceman at the gate and quietly asked to switch seats with him. The five-time Academy Award nominee has often spoke glowingly of her father´s time in the military and of growing up on bases in both Italy and U.S. She then had a brief chat with the soldier near the cockpit and scurried to her seat in coach before many people noticed what had happened, according to ESPN host Jemele Hill, who witnessed the switch.

From the start, David Cameron has loathed European summits. [Snip] Take, for example, today’s summit to decide the next president of the European Commission. Cameron knows that most of his counterparts regard Jean-Claude Juncker as a fairly useless, wine-soaked uber-federalist. But yesterday, they were all (with the possible exception of Hungary) set to vote him in as president--all except Britain, which is the only country to denounce the whole scam. If this is the way the system works, Cameron says, he wants a new system. There is an element of Mr Smith Goes to Washington about all of this. Cameron

Currently traveling in Minnesota, Barack Obama appears to be bristling at the notion that House Republicans are set to challenge him in the courts. PBS characterizes his demeanor as "mocking." Perhaps. But observers of he Obama White House might note that he often becomes petulant, if not downright immature whenever he feels his presumed authority is being challenged by another branch of America´s Constitutional form of government. “They’re not doing anything, and then they’re mad at me for doing something,” Mr. Obama said of Republican lawmakers, adding, “They’ve decided they’re going to sue me for doing my job.” This came

Facebook’s News Feed—the main list of status updates, messages, and photos you see when you open Facebook on your computer or phone—is not a perfect mirror of the world. But few users expect that Facebook would change their News Feed in order to manipulate their emotional state. We now know that’s exactly what happened two years ago. For one week in January 2012, data scientists skewed what almost 700,000 Facebook users saw when they logged into its service. Some people were shown content with a preponderance of happy and positive words; some were shown content analyzed as sadder than average.

Edward Klein’s book about the animosity between the Clintons and Obamas, “Blood Feud” (Regnery Publishing), rocketed up the best-seller charts since it was featured in The Post last Sunday. Here, in another exclusive excerpt, Klein ­describes how Bill’s health is a preoccupation of the Clintons. A pair of black, armor-plated SUVs swung into a suburban cul-de-sac and crunched to a stop in the driveway of the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York. A wall of burly Secret Service agents jumped out and surrounded the man who emerged from the lead vehicle. It was mid-summer 2013, and Bill Clinton looked shrunken and weary.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed to crush the Tea Party, and with help from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in Kentucky, he did, and nationally, he will. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has sent the Tea Party to the back benches, and after the recent defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is his successor any different than him? No. Did anything change? No. The Tea Party is not being done in by Democrats; it is being done in by the party of big business, crony capitalism, big money from insider Wall Street and big banks, the Chamber of Commerce and the corporate lobbying wing of the Tea Party's real nemesis:

With the news of a massive influx of immigrants on the southern border, a new Gallup Poll shows that only 22% of Americans favor increased immigration. Only 14% of Republicans, 23% of independents, and 27% of Democrats favor increased immigration. The poll actually revealed a strong desire among Americans to decrease immigration, as 41% of respondents thought immigration should be decreased. This included 50% of GOP voters, 43% of independents, and 32% of Democrats. The percentage of those preferring to decrease immigration has jumped from 35% in 2012 and 2013 to 41% in 2014.

A black man in New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against his former employer, Benjamin Moore Paints, which he says named one of its paint colors after him and then fired him when he complained. Clinton Tucker, who managed online sales for Benjamin Moore, which is owned by the conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, said that he was bothered by the names of several of the company’s paint colors, “Clinton Brown,” “Tucker Chocolate,” and “Confederate Red.” “Being a black man named Clinton Tucker, the plaintiff found this to be extremely racially offensive,” reads the complaint, filed in Essex County Court.

President Obama will ask Congress to provide more than $2 billion in new funds to control the surge of illegal Central American migrants at the South Texas border, and to grant broader powers for immigration officials to speed deportations of children caught crossing without their parents, White House officials said on Saturday. Mr. Obama will send a letter on Monday to alert Congress that he will seek an emergency appropriation for rapidly expanding border enforcement actions and humanitarian assistance programs to cope with the influx, which includes record numbers of unaccompanied minors and adults bringing children.

Every reader of AT knows that Ayers and Obama worked together - that Ayers hired Obama for the biggest job of his life before becoming President – handing out $100 million dollars of the Annenberg Challenge grants to radical causes, instead of using it to help Chicago’s schoolchildren. ere is a preview of the interview from Fox: Stanley Kurtz at the Wall St. Journal:

And in an interview with POLITICO, Lerner’s lawyer says it’s “a little brazen to think she did this on purpose.” William Taylor III says all the Republican hand-wringing about Lerner doing something sinister is just “silly” because, he said, she honestly doesn’t know what happened to the emails.

Dear Secretary Clinton, Please consider this in the nature of a friendly intervention. You have a money problem. It’s time to deal with it before it gets worse. Actually, you have two money problems. The first is how you talk about it. The second is how you collect it — or, to be more precise, the fact that you’re still frenetically collecting it. Let me be clear at the outset: The issue isn’t that you’re rich, or even that you and your husband became rich after leaving office. American voters don’t have a problem with wealthy candidates or even wealthy ex-presidents

What transpired in the Mississippi Senate run-off is a red line for many conservatives across the country, because the Republican Party establishment essentially took a civil war and escalated it to a war for independence. It’s one thing to oppose your base in a primary. It’s entirely another to despicably play the race card against your base, and bolster the legitimacy of the propaganda of our race-baiting opponents on the Left. But that’s exactly what the Kamikaze pilots running the GOP did. As a result, Chris McDaniel won Republican voters handily on Tuesday, but still lost the run-off statewide thanks

There are two arguments that advocates of Chris McDaniel are using to suggest that the results of Tuesday´s Republican Senate run-off election in Mississippi should be overturned. First, they argue that voters who voted in the Democratic primary and the Republican run-off should be eliminated from the total. And, second, they argue that Mississippi law prevents someone from voting in a party primary who won´t support the general election candidate. Neither argument will work. In the first case, there are almost certainly not enough Democratic primary/GOP runoff ballots to make up the nearly 7,000-vote gap between McDaniel and incumbent Sen. Thad
