The last time they were side by side was as babies in their mother’s arms. But 78 years later, after being separated before they were 20 weeks old, long lost twin sisters named Ann and Elizabeth have finally been reunited. They spent lifetimes apart in different countries; one never knew she had a sister, the other never knew where her adopted twin might be. This week they met for the first time – to discover striking parallels in the separate paths they followed. After hugging and shedding tears of joy, they caught up on old times in their first face-to-face conversation. Their time apart is

This Guy Has Written More Hits Than
Michael Jackson And Madonna Combined…
And You’ve Never Heard of Him

It’s true. Moreover, while you probably don’t know his name, you have heard his songs. That is, if you’ve ever listened to The Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, N’Sync, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Celine Dion, Bon Jovi, Adam Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Pink or Justin Bieber. Give up? Max Martin. Yeah, Swedish-born Max Martin. Hey, I’d never heard of him either – and I’m a music guy. Anyway, Martin has written more Billboard singles than Michael Jackson and Madonna combined. So who is Max Martin? Via celebritynetworth.com: Was he a huge rock star in Sweden? Not even close; the most popular

North Korea releases list of U.S. ‘human
rights abuses’: ‘The U.S. is a living hell’
Washington Post, by Adam Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/3/2014 4:44:31 AM     Post Reply
In February, the United Nations released a remarkably comprehensive report on North Korea´s human rights abuses. The report interviewed 320 people, including a number of survivors from the notorious secret political system, and concluded that the country was committing human rights violations “without any parallel in the contemporary world.” So how did North Korea respond? With indignant anger. For weeks now, North Korean state media have been offering various retorts to the United Nations. In April, a North Korean spokesman argued that the United States and its allies were running a "human rights racket." Then, a few weeks later, the official

Michelle Knight’s New Name, Distance

Michelle Knight, one of the three women who escaped captivity from a Cleveland house of horrors last year, says she’s changed her name and distanced herself from the other captives. Knight told People magazine she changed her name to “Lily” and has parted ways from Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, the two other women who were freed from Ariel Castro’s decade long captivity. “I love them and they love me,” Knight said. “Hopefully we’ll all get back together again.” One expert says it’s a smart move for the 33-year-old, still reeling from more than a decade of horrific sexual, emotional and physical abuse.

Missing Jet Recordings May
Have Been ´Edited´: Experts

Audio recordings of the final conversations between pilots of the missing Malaysian jet and teams of air traffic controllers on the ground were "edited" before they were made public, voice experts say. The tapes also appear to be recorded by at least two different audio sources, one of which may have been a digital recorder held up to a speaker, they said. The analysts cautioned that their observations don´t necessarily imply anything about the investigation into the missing flight. The quality and brevity of the interactions between the cockpit and controllers made it impossible to glean any information about the pilots´ state of

Think “rock, paper, scissors” is a game of luck? Think again. New research out of China shows that there may be a pattern for success. After studying 360 participants playing the schoolyard game 300 times, Zhijian Wang at Zhejiang University in China determined that players will choose each weapon option a third of the time, showing that people don’t have personal preference for a position. More importantly however, when people win a game, they are more likely to choose the winning weapon to begin the next game. As a savvy player, you can use that knowledge to your advantage if you lose.

Rubio’s 2016 strategy:

That headline sounds like a joke but I think this is smart strategic thinking. Given the cards he has to play, this is how he should play them. The former Florida House speaker, just four months into his fourth year in Congress, has avoided travel to the early primary states. He isn’t busy jockeying for position. Rather, he has quietly focused on building a political organization that would serve as the basis for a presidential campaign, burnishing his policy and legislative resume, and honing the Image of the sort of consensus Republican who historically has captured the GOP nomination.

Federal investigators are checking whether 55 colleges and universities illegally handled sexual violence and harassment complaints, the U.S. Department of Education said Thursday. Such investigations have long been known, but this is the first time that the department has released a list of all probes currently under way. The list includes colleges and universities in 27 states and in the District of Columbia. See the full list here "We are making this list available in an effort to bring more transparency to our enforcement work and to foster better public awareness of civil rights," said Catherine E. Lhamon, the department´s assistant secretary for civil

Solved! How Ancient Egyptians
Moved Massive Pyramid Stones
Live Science, by Denise Chow    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/2/2014 4:20:10 AM     Post Reply
The ancient Egyptians who built the pyramids may have been able to move massive stone blocks across the desert by wetting the sand in front of a contraption built to pull the heavy objects, according to a new study. Physicists at the University of Amsterdam investigated the forces needed to pull weighty objects on a giant sled over desert sand, and discovered that dampening the sand in front of the primitive device reduces friction on the sled, making it easier to operate. The findings help answer one of the most enduring historical mysteries: how the Egyptians were able to accomplish the

While the national frenzy surrounding cattle rancher Cliven Bundy’s viral commentary on race has finally faded, the situation in Bunkerville, Nevada is as incendiary as ever. Bundy, his family, and many of his remaining supporters have not backed down on their promise to use lethal force to prevent the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from removing trespassing livestock from federal land. According to the U.S. Capitol Police, Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev) has received death threats at his home from Bundy supporters. Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev, has reported that local residents of the area have complained that armed militia

Subway removes ham and bacon from nearly

Fast food giant Subway has removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets, and switched to halal meat alternatives in an attempt to please its Muslim customers. It has confirmed turkey ham and turkey rashers will be used instead in 185 of its stores, where all the meat will now be prepared according to halal rules. The chain, which has around 1,500 outlets across the UK, explained its decision by saying it had to balance animal welfare concerns with ´the views of religious communities´. Traditional halal slaughter sees animals have their throats slit before bleeding to death. But Subway stressed that the meat

Ex-White House Official On Benghazi:

Former White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor went on Fox News on Thursday, and after host Brett Baier grilled him over the issue of the talking points used after the attack, he finally responded with, "Dude, this was like two years ago." Throughout the exchange, Vietor — who seemed annoyed at the line of questioning — wasn´t really able to answer Baier on various questions, telling him he "believes so" or that he didn´t remember. "You don´t remember?" Baier asked, to which Vietor responded, "Dude, this was like two years ago. We´re still talking about the most mundane

I don’t believe the Second Amendment was ever intended to support the kind of gun craziness we contend with today, but since it’s always used to ward off any common-sense gun reforms, maybe we ought to just fix the Constitution and be done with it. Yes, I know the odds against that are immense, but maybe we could start by nibbling away at the idea that the Constitution is infallible or that the founders had the answers to everything. They were smart men but neither perfect nor prescient. One of the ways they showed how smart they were, was that they made

ITHACA, N.Y.--Researchers at Cornell University conducted a study about biting versus chewing habits in children and found that kids who eat chicken on the bone are more likely to disobey adults and be aggressive. The study, which was published in Eating Behaviors, found that children were "twice as likely to disobey adults and twice as aggressive toward other kids" when eating food they had to hold and bite. Researches found that children were more docile when eating cut-up pieces of food, results which would seem to indicate that there is a connection between having to use teeth to eat and aggressive

A newly-emerged government email directly "contradicts the message that President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice and White House press secretary Jay Carney repeated publicly" in the immediate aftermath of the attack in Benghazi. Per Sharyl Attkisson dot com, the "email is titled “Libya update from Beth Jones.” Beth Jones served as Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton at the time. The email documents a conversation between Jones and Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 not long after the attacks. This below contradicts the White House and State Department´s story

As his co-hosts on The Five continued to examine every angle of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi Friday afternoon, this time focusing on comments made by a former White House spokesperson, Bob Beckel decided he had finally had enough. Deliberating echoing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Beckel pounded the table and said, “We know Islamic radicals killed these people, what difference does it make anymore?!” “Let me finish!” Beckel shouted at Eric Bolling, as that host tried to prevent him from bringing up any issues unrelated to the Benghazi attack. When Bolling said he should

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), the No. 4 House Republican, is walking back comments attributed to her that ObamaCare can’t be repealed. But she’s not the only one suggesting Congress merely make changes within the framework of the health law. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) says the goal is to get the law “fixed.” It seems many GOP lawmakers still haven’t read the law, or they’d know the framework is corrupt. Even Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) speculated Friday that repeal is unlikely because it will be “difficult to turn the clock back.”Nonsense. Even by the most inflated administration claims,

WASHINGTON -- U.S. military personnel knew early on that the Bengahzi attack was a "hostile action" and not a protest gone awry, according to a retired general who served at U.S. Africa Command´s headquarters in Germany during the attack. While the exact nature of the attack was not clear from the start, "what we did know early on was that this was a hostile action," Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell said in his prepared statement this morning to members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. "This was no demonstration gone terribly awry." Lovell´s testimony is the first

Angry congressional Republicans have commanded Secretary John Kerry to testify in a May 21 hearing about why the State Department hid documents showing how the aftermath of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi unfolded. They are also launching a new investigative committee to dig further into the scandal, which erupted just weeks before President Obama´s re-election. He insisted at the time that al-Qaeda was ´on the run,´ but documents now confirm that the State Department knew immediately that it was a terror attack carried out by an al-Qaeda-affiliated group. Two emails have emerged in the past 24 hours that suggest Obama administration

With the unveiling of the Affordable Care Act´s website, the public experienced a painful reminder of the consequences of the government´s new authority over health care. While millions signed up for insurance, millions of others abruptly lost their existing coverage and access to their doctors because that coverage didn´t fit new ObamaCare definitions. The health-care law was generated by an administration promoting government as the solution to inequality, yet the greatest irony of ObamaCare is what will undoubtedly follow as a long-term, unintended consequence of the law: a decidedly unequal, two-tiered health system.

Obama’s ‘Blame the Video’ Fraud
Started in Cairo, Not Benghazi

Here is the main point: The rioting at the American embassy in Cairo was not about the anti-Muslim video. As argued here repeatedly (see here and here), the Obama administration’s “Blame the Video” story was a fraudulent explanation for the September 11, 2012, rioting in Cairo every bit as much as it was a fraudulent explanation for the massacre in Benghazi several hours later. We’ll come back to that because, once you grasp this well-hidden fact, the Obama administration’s derelictions of duty in connection with Benghazi become much easier to see. But let’s begin with Jay Carney’s performance in Wednesday’s exchange

The thrill up the leg is gone. There’s not even a tingle in the toes. President Obama’s media supporters are abandoning him. Even the liberal culture seems to be abandoning him. And as he slips into the low 40s in two recent polls, it’s hard to see how he recasts his once-glittering image. This is the kind of sea change that goes beyond polling numbers. The very mass culture that celebrated Barack Obama, that turned him into an international icon, is now migrating toward the darker side of his legacy, perhaps fueled by a sense of frustration and disappointment. On the pundit front, the

More than 1.5 million medical orders were canceled by the Department of Veterans Affairs without any guarantee the patients received the treatment or tests they needed, the Washington Examiner has found. Since May 2013, veterans´ medical centers nationwide have been under pressure to clear out 2 million backlogged orders for patient care or services. They were given wide latitude to cancel unfilled appointments more than 90 days old. By April 2014, the backlog of what the agency calls “unresolved consults” was down to about 450,000. What happened to other 1.5 million appointments is something that no one, including top officials at the veterans’
