Lynnville, TN - When a Lynnville, TN, woman dropped her garden gnome on the sidewalk and it broke, what she discovered inside is now front-page news and the talk of the town in Giles County. (Snip) "My friend opened the door, and it dropped and fell. I went to pick up the pieces and noticed something inside it," Andrews said. There appears to be a statue inside the gnome that was formed at the time of the making of the gnome. It´s fused to the top and to the bottom. "I think the face has really intricate detail and someone

I actually clicked through to the gnome´s Facebook page (obviously...) and the photos are bizzare! One of his 114k fans commented that it may be some sort of artifact that was smuggled in to the country via the gnome. Could be! One of life´s great mysteries.

Napolitano creates panel to
deal with campus sexual violence
San Francisco Chronicle, by Nanette Asimov    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 6/20/2014 11:38:04 PM     Post Reply
University of California President Janet Napolitano said Friday that a new panel of 75 to 100 people will oversee UC´s efforts to deal with sexual violence at its 10 campuses. The announcement comes just days before the state auditor is expected to issue a report on how UC´s flagship campuses - UC Berkeley and UCLA - handle sexual assault complaints. State lawmakers had authorized the audit during an emotional hearing in Sacramento in August after nine UC Berkeley students and alumnae accused campus officials of treating their assault allegations far too lightly. The nine who came forward have ignited national attention on

CIA hatched plan to make demon toy

For more than a decade, the CIA has deployed drones, satellites, spies, informants and tracking devices to thwart al-Qaeda in Pakistan. The spy agency also considered a plan to wage war with toys. Beginning in about 2005, the CIA began secretly developing a ­custom-made Osama bin Laden ­action figure, according to people familiar with the project. The face of the figure was painted with a heat-dissolving material, designed to peel off and reveal a red-faced bin Laden who looked like a demon, with piercing green eyes and black facial markings. The goal of the short-lived project

Presbyterian assembly:
Gay marriage is Christian
Associated Press, by Jeff Karoub    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 6/19/2014 11:19:13 PM     Post Reply
Detroit — The top legislative body of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted by large margins Thursday to recognize same-sex marriage as Christian in the church constitution, adding language that marriage can be the union of "two people," not just "a man and a woman." The amendment approved by the Presbyterian General Assembly requires approval from a majority of the 172 regional presbyteries, which will vote on the change over the next year. But in a separate policy change that takes effect at the end of this week´s meeting, delegates voted to allow ministers to preside at gay weddings in states

Brussels — A Dutch scheme to build a utopian gated neighbourhood exclusively for the gay community has sparked a backlash, with opponents warning that retreating to a “ghetto” will not help tackle homophobia and prejudice in society. The project dubbed “Gay Village” by developers aims to give members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community a prejudice-free environment with luxuries including tennis courts and a cooking school. (Snip) The motivation for the project was “discrimination and violence against members of the LGBT community”, the website said, creating the “need for a neighbourhood... which gives a greater sense of social

Washington parents are outraged after the state released a convicted rapist who nearly beat a 3-year-old girl to death and sexually assaulted at least three boys. Cory Roberts, now 37, was first convicted in 1990 after he raped and battered a toddler, leaving her paralyzed and brain damaged. He was freed once in 2001, only to be convicted of a similar crime weeks later. But now, King County said he´s no longer a threat. Roberts was released on Monday, Seattle´s KING 5 reported. Kelly McGinnis — the mother of Robert´s first victim — is horrified. "It´s not just because he´s

Upper Darby, Pa. - A man sitting at a trolley stop in Drexel Hill is punched in the face, and it’s all caught on camera. "It´s a real shame that something like this could take place," said the victim. The victim does not want to be identified, but wants his story told. He says he was just minding his own business at the Burmont and Morgan trolley stop last week when about six teens came up to him. (Snip) “Extremely disappointing about how the world´s changed since I’ve known it," the victim said. The Upper Darby Police Department says they

Newark, where more than a quarter of residents live in poverty, is stuck paying $1 million a year on bonds for a baseball park that’s lost its main tenant. The $34 million Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium, envisioned as a pillar of development in the state’s most populous city when it opened in 1999, is mostly silent this season after the Newark Bears folded amid dwindling attendance. The owners are trying to sell the club after putting belongings, including the team bus, up for auction in April. Taxpayers in Newark and surrounding Essex County are left with a combined $2 million a

   

 



 
‘Lifestyle’ abortions warning as
serial termination numbers surge
Telegraph [UK], by John Bingham    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 6/12/2014 10:48:26 PM     Post Reply
Abortion is increasingly being used simply as a form of “contraception”, MPs claimed as official figures showed a surge in the number of women having nine or more terminations. Almost seven in 10 women who had a pregnancy terminated last year were married or in a stable long-term relationship, the new figures from the Department of Health show. Overall there were 190,800 abortions in England and Wales last year taking the total for the last decade to just under two million. Across mainland Britain as a whole there were 202,577 in 2013. The figures also who increasing numbers of older

Coalition rift opens as parties

The Coalition split over tackling knife crime will be laid bare next week when Conservative and Liberal Democrat ministers clash over moves to toughen penalties for carrying blades. Their differences will come to a head when the Commons votes on a Tory MP’s call for anyone caught twice with a knife to face an automatic jail sentence. Conservative ministers support the principle of the move, but it is opposed by the Liberal Democrats. After they failed to reach an agreed position, Tory ministers have been instructed to abstain, while the vast majority of Conservative backbenchers including parliamentary private secretaries are

Teen violence: Racial

Cincinnati — Teen mobs at city events is not a Cincinnati thing, and it´s been going on for years. Evidence of teen violence goes back to the Wisconsin State Fair in 2011, Philly, Chicago and spring 2014 in Louisville. They all have in common the attacks are by black, teenaged boys and girls. And most of the victims are white. The race factor is not something officials like to talk about. One UC criminology professor says that silence could be deadly. To some who called 911, the race factor was obvious. 11 victims filed reports saying they were kicked, punched

Top Senate Democrats and Republicans on Tuesday said they were considering offering American companies a one-time tax break if they repatriate profits stashed abroad. The senators anticipate the proposal would generate a windfall in revenue that would be used to fund federal transportation projects. U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters in the Capitol that Republicans had discussed a corporate tax repatriation "holiday" idea and "it enjoys a good deal of support in our conference." (Snip) The plan would give companies a one-time reduction in the amount of taxes they pay on profits earned abroad, giving them an incentive

New York — Spending on corporate subsidies by the state of New Jersey has risen more than sevenfold under Republican governor Chris Christie, according to a study published on Wednesday, which concluded that the awards had done little to boost the state’s flagging economy. New Jersey has awarded tax breaks or credits at a rate of $75.9m per month since Christie came to office in 2010, compared to $10.1m per month during the previous decade, according to a report by New Jersey Policy Perspective (NJPP), a liberal-leaning thinktank. The study found that in all, $4bn worth of subsidies had been awarded

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That´s outrageous!” “He can´t do that!” “No way!” “It´s against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration. For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama´s amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I´ll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a

WASHINGTON -- The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it´s still attempting to recover the data and it´s too soon to know how many e-mails are missing. "I don´t think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee. "Every e-mail has been preserved that we have." In his most contentious hearing since becoming commissioner six months ago, Koskinen testified about efforts the IRS has made to recover e-mails that were lost when Lois Lerner´s computer hard drive crashed

At a time when debate is swirling over the assertion that 97 percent of scientists endorse man-made global warming, Secretary of State John Kerry – a frequent citer of the 97 percent figure – in a speech Wednesday nudged the figure up to “at least 98, 99 percent.” “When it comes to climate change, when it comes to food security, we are literally facing a moment of adversity – perhaps even dire necessity,” Kerry said at a State Department food security award ceremony. “It’s hard to convince people – hard to convince people of a challenge that isn’t immediately tangible

Fox News host Bill O´Reilly dissed conservative talk radio host and icon Rush Limbaugh at an event in New York City Wednesday evening. According to the Daily Beast, O´Reilly told the audience, “I’m not Rush Limbaugh or Al Franken, where everything has to fit into my worldview… I’m a fact-based guy. A lot of people don’t understand that.” O´Reilly made his remarks about being a "fact-based guy" days after he tried to convince his viewers that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) did not lose his primary race last week to Dave Brat because of the amnesty issue.

Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate, her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits. No, I haven’t read it

President Obama´s approval rating has dropped to 41 percent, a majority of Americans disapprove of his handling of foreign policy issues, he has lost support from the Hispanic community and Americans actually think his administration is less competent than the Bush White House post-Hurricane Katrina, according to a new survey from the Wall Street Journal and NBC News. In short, the poll is nothing but bad news for the president.

President Obama told his Mexican counterpart in a phone call Thursday that immigrants crossing into the U.S. illegally won’t qualify for legalized status or deferred deportation, including children. The White House said Mr. Obama and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto discussed “a regional strategy” to address the surge of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S. With thousands of children trying to enter the U.S. illegally in recent months, Vice President Joseph R.

Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer apparently doesn’t think Southern men are manly. Following Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor’s stunning loss last week, Mr. Schweitzer initial response, according to a profile in The National Journal, was, “men in the South, they are a little effeminate.” “They just have effeminate mannerisms,” Mr. Schweitzer said. “If you were just a regular person, you turned on the TV, and you saw Eric Cantor talking, I would say—and I’m fine with gay people, that’s all right—but my gaydar is 60-70 percent.” “But he’s not, I think, so I don’t know.

The U.S. is leading by example in promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) rights at home and around the world, Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday. He said the federal government recognizes same-sex marriages of foreign diplomats stationed in the U.S., and it expects all other countries to do the same in their treatment of U.S. personnel deployed abroad. “Let me be clear: We oppose any effort by any country to deny visas for spouses of American staff,” he said. “It’s discriminatory, it’s unacceptable, it has no place in the 21st century.”
