Leave your ´stupid hat´ at

Arthur could be deadly

CNN, by Ben Brumfield

Canceled. Rescheduled. As Hurricane Arthur gyrates up the East Coast, beachfront Fourth of July celebrations are falling flat -- and that could save lives, if it keeps revelers out of the water. "This is no time to put your stupid hat on," North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory told CNN´s "New Day" on Thursday, warning people to stay out of the ocean. Forecasters say a major risk from the storm will be potentially deadly rip currents. "Don´t get brave just because you see some good waves out there," he said. "Stay out of the water ... and make sure we don´t

Reminds us that Chris Christie had gained a lot of favor with his "get the hell off the beach" comment. And then he hugged the Emperor days before the election.

Just no hugs, Gov. McCrory.

As to North Carolinians: never take a hurricane for granted. I still remember Cleo in Miami 1964. That one was supposed to stay harmlessly miles off shore, but wound up going right up Biscayne Blvd.

A force 1 hurricane is, sadly, all it takes for the nanny culture to kick into high wailing gear.

Next up: governor declares emergency to make disaster relief funds available. What is never explained is why such funds are not readily available to begin with and why a magic incantation from a governor, breathlessly repeated by the media, is even necessary for such common sense expenditures.

The government/media complex are addicted to Chicken Little reactionism to the weather. It makes them appear integral to daily life.

Let’s Stop Idealizing the
Home-Cooked Family Dinner
Slate, by Amanda Marcotte    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/4/2014 8:23:46 AM     Post Reply
The home-cooked meal has long been romanticized, from ’50s-era sitcoms to the work of star food writer Michael Pollan, who once wrote, “far from oppressing them, the work of cooking approached in the proper spirit offered a kind of fulfillment and deserved an intelligent woman’s attention.” In recent years, the home-cooked meal has increasingly been offered up as the solution to our country´s burgeoning nutrition-related health problems of heart disease and diabetes. But while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food, sociologists Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott, and Joslyn Brenton from North Carolina State University argue that the stress that

Michael Sam has apparently found his next NFL job with the Dallas Cowboys. Sam, the defensive end seeking to become the NFL´s first openly gay player, will undergo a physical at the Cowboys headquarters on Wednesday, with the team poised to sign him to their 10-man practice squad, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed to USA TODAY Sports. It would create an intriguing mix with Sam joining arguably the NFL´s highest-profiled franchise amid the enormous presence he has enjoyed for his social statement.(Snip) Yet the Cowboys could use the help for their injury-depleted defense that is challenged to improve after ranking

"We wouldn´t send it out without verifying it," Cliffie offered. "It´s him being beheaded."

A Widening Food Gap: U.S.
Eating Habits Have Improved,
But Not Among The Poor
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 9/2/2014 11:55:58 AM     Post Reply
American eating habits have improved — except among the poor, evidence of a widening wealth gap when it comes to diet. Yet even among wealthier adults, food choices remain far from ideal, a 12-year study found. (Snip)Scores for low-income adults were lower than the average and barely budged during the years studied. They averaged almost four points lower than those for high-income adults at the beginning; the difference increased to more than six points in 2009-10. Higher scores mean greater intake of heart-healthy foods including vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats, and a high score means a low risk

David Cameron backs Ashya King´s
parents as senior MPs say they are

David Cameron has given his personal backing to Brett and Naghemeh King by saying he believes the couple are trying to “do the very best for” their son Ashya. Mr Cameron, whose own son Ivan died at the age of six in 2009, refused to criticise Mr and Mrs King for smuggling their son out of a British hospital against his doctor’s wishes after deciding he would get better treatment abroad. Other senior MPs criticised the police for “criminalising” the couple and for their “heavy-handed” approach in issuing a Europe-wide warrant for their arrest.

President Obama spent Labor Day in Wisconsin, opening the campaign season in a battleground state with a tight race for governor — but the Democrat at the top of the ticket there was nowhere to be seen. Mary Burke, who is battling to unseat Republican Gov. Scott Walker, decided to steer clear of Obama’s visit to LaborFest, an annual salute to organized labor held in Milwaukee. She became the latest in a parade of Democrats in tight races who have tried to create space between themselves and a President with weak poll numbers.

That item is about 8 feet East of Big Mike’s body (it could be packs of the cigars or something similar in size). This supports the stop, turn, and begin approaching Wilson who

Canadian scientists have rescued from death monkeys that were infected with a lethal dose of Ebola, in the latest study of an experimental drug that has been used on a handful of Ebola victims in West Africa. The antibody based compound known as ZMapp rescued 100 per cent of 18 Ebola-infected rhesus macaques, even when the drug was administered up to five days after infection with the virus. All treated monkeys recovered fully and show no side-effects, said Dr. Gary Kobinger, chief of special pathogens at Canada´s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg.

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals.
