New .sucks web domain offers new space, mischief
Post Date: 2015-03-18 08:53:10 by Willie Green
Business will have to pay a hefty price to register new web domains.Global Internet regulators have approved hundreds of new domains, some of which will go on sale at the end of March. LOS ANGELES, March 17 (UPI) -- The Internet is about to offer more digital real estate in the latest push to open up new space for the world's ever-growing web presence. And one of them really, truly sucks. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers has approved hundreds of new generic top-level domain (gTLD) expansions, and there could be nearly 1,500 new ones in the next few years, MacWorld reported Tuesday. TLDs are found at the end of any primary URL -- such as .com and .gov. As ...

49ers' Chris Borland, 24, retires because of brain injury concerns
Post Date: 2015-03-17 12:30:11 by Willie Green
After just one NFL season, San Francisco linebacker Chris Borland, who looked like the future of the 49ers' defense, will retire out of concerns about the long-term effects of brain injuries. Borland, 24, revealed his surprising decision Monday on ESPN's "Outside the Lines" after informing the 49ers of his intentions Friday. The 49ers later announced his retirement. "I just honestly want to do what's best for my health," Borland said. "From what I've researched and what I've experienced, I don't think it's worth the risk." Borland cited a fear of developing a brain disease like former NFL players Mike Webster, Dave Duerson and Ray ...

Private Company Suspected of Dumping Biohazards Into Oklahoma River
Post Date: 2015-03-17 07:56:36 by Willie Green
Blood-Filled Syringes, Other Medical Waste Found in RiverHundreds of used syringes and blood vials in biohazard containers ended up in the Arkansas River after a private company was hired to dispose of them, Oklahoma investigators said Monday. The five containers were spotted Saturday in the Pawnee County section of the river near Ralston, west of Tulsa, by a group of friends who were out on a boat. "There's no telling how long this has happened or if it's happened more than once," one of them, Taylor Smyth, told NBC station KFOR of Oklahoma City. "I don't feel comfortable swimming now," Smyth said. The Pawnee County Sheriff's Office said biohazard ...

A Libertarian’s Guide to Modern Vernacular Euphemisms
Post Date: 2015-03-15 13:17:16 by Hondo68
Whenever I hear common terms thrown around the political arena, the definition goes into one ear and comes out the other as a different meaning. The titles are meant to be intentionally misleading. It’s better to treat these words and phrases like a mathematical function, f(x). Luckily, I’m here to help decipher some of these popular euphemisms. Plug in your favorite definitions to find out their true meanings!   A law = A bill passed by politicians paid for and written by special interest groups Bipartisan support = The political class agreeing on the means of exploiting the taxpaying class Checks and balances = Government auditing and condoning its own actions Climate ...

U.S. students losing interest in China as dream jobs prove elusive
Post Date: 2015-03-12 18:50:12 by Willie Green
SHANGHAI (Reuters) - American students are getting cold feet about studying Chinese in China, with many study abroad programs in the country seeing a substantial drop in enrolment over the last few years. At the University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP), student enrolment in programs in China is expected to be less than half the level it was only four years ago. Washington-based CET, another leading study abroad group, says interest in China has been falling since 2013. The apparent waning of interest worries some China watchers. Given the importance of the U.S.-China relationship, having a group of Americans across different industries who speak Chinese and understand the ...

9-0 SCOTUS: Amtrak wins over freight trains
Post Date: 2015-03-11 07:59:00 by Willie Green
The U.S. Supreme Court sided Monday with Amtrak in a dispute with freight railroads over priority of passenger trains on freight tracks. A 2008 law directed Amtrak to work with the Federal Railroad Administration to create standards that let Amtrak keep priority over freight trains. But a federal appeals court sided with the freight railroad industry, which said Amtrak was a private organization that could not regulate competitors' actions. The Supreme Court reversed, saying Amtrak is like a government entity given the reality of federal controls. Amtrak said its on-time performance has been hampered by freight trains holding up passenger trains. Poster Comment:Woohoo! Get those ...

Reviewing The Rubio-Lee Proposal For Tax Reform
Post Date: 2015-03-10 19:00:54 by Willie Green
Hey, I’ve got a neat idea…why don’t we take a break from futilely attempting to understand the existing tax law and devote some time to futilely attempting to understand proposed tax law that will, in all likelihood, never become a reality? Sound good? Great. Last week, Republican Senators Marco Rubio (Fla) and Mike Lee (Utah) released a fairly detailed plan to overhaul the existing Code. The creatively-coined “Rubio-Lee” plan has garnered a lot of attention, and considering Republicans currently control both the House and Senate, it should certainly be taken seriously. Let’s take a look at the ...

Prank call leads to heavy destruction of Circle K store
Post Date: 2015-02-22 09:43:57 by cranky
video Windows broken, merchandise destroyed; a Circle K store was left so damaged it was forced to close. It wasn't the work of vandals; it was done by store employees. Police say the employees thought they were following instructions from a security company, but it was a prank call. It's a bizarre story that left a convenience store in ruins. It sounds like a scene out of a movie, but it did happen. Globe Police say the joke went too far, and it's no laughing matter. "I couldn't believe the damage that I'd seen today, it was rediculous," said Lorraine Phillips. The store was boarded up, but open for business. It wasn't a force of nature, but ...

Audit The Fed——And Shackle It, Too
Post Date: 2015-02-21 08:55:02 by nativist nationalist
The reason to be fearful about the economic and financial future is that we are in the thrall of a mainstream consensus that is downright meretricious. In attacking Rand Paul’s audit legislation, for instance, one of the time- servers on the Fed Board of Governors, Jerome H. Powell, let loose the following gem: “As recent U.S. history has shown, elected officials have often pushed for easier policies that serve short-term political interests…..” Perhaps Mr. Powell is a descendent of Rip Van Winkle—–and missed the last 20 years of history while doing LBOs at the Carlyle Group and helping Congress improve upon its enviable record of fiscal management while at ...

Returning money to a gold – silver standard within ten years
Post Date: 2015-02-14 19:03:55 by Gatlin
WASHINGTON, February 13, 2015 – It shouldn’t be too long now. It might be soon, if Greece’s new government and the rest of Europe end up going separate ways. It might be later and could be triggered by a number of different economic events. But just like blowing up a balloon, that sneaky suspicion that the rubber of the balloon can only stretch so far will force us to make some decisions. The only question will be one of timetable and initiative: On whose timetable will these decisions be made? At whose initiative? I believe it should be ours as neighbors. So I’ll wrap up this now-seven part series by stating the following: I am not selling a newsletter. I am not ...

Why Tesla's battery for your home should terrify utilities
Post Date: 2015-02-14 06:31:47 by Willie Green
Elon Musk's electricity empire could mean a new type of power grid Earlier this week, during a disappointing Tesla earnings call, Elon Musk mentioned in passing that he’d be producing a stationary battery for powering the home in the next few months. It sounded like a throwaway side project from someone who’s never seen a side project he doesn’t like. But it’s a very smart move, and one that’s more central to Musk’s ambitions than it might seem. To understand why, it helps to look not at Tesla, but at SolarCity, a company chaired by Musk and run by his cousin Lyndon Rive. SolarCity installs panels on people’s roofs, leases them for less than ...

APNewsBreak: NJ allows physical skill-based gambling
Post Date: 2015-02-13 19:38:03 by cranky
An Atlantic City casino is about to redefine casino gambling by introducing a new style of wagering: competition based on a physical skill rather than luck. Executives at The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa told The Associated Press on Friday that they've gotten permission from New Jersey gambling regulators to host a basketball contest next month in which players shoot free throws for money. It's the first of what promises to be many skill-based events that let gamblers take greater control over the outcomes of their bets, rather than relying on a roll of the dice, spin of the wheel or deal of the cards. "This is a first step, something we've never been able to do until ...

Judge orders gamblers to return winnings to New Jersey casino
Post Date: 2015-02-13 08:31:08 by cranky
A New Jersey judge ordered the return of $1.5 million to a casino from gamblers who won at a table game after realizing the cards had not been shuffled. State Superior Court Judge Donna Taylor ruled in favor of the Golden Nugget casino in its dispute with 14 gamblers who say it was not there fault the cards were not shuffled and should be allowed to keep their winnings. A mini-baccarat game is where the trouble started in April 2012. The casino was using decks of cards that paid a manufacturer to pre-shuffle, but the deck at hand was not shuffled. Once the gamblers realized the cards were not shuffled, they increased their bets from $10 to $5,000 and proceeded to win 41 straight hands. ...

Dead raccoons sold at LA market for $9.99 per pound
Post Date: 2015-02-11 13:25:01 by Willie Green
TEMPLE CITY (CBSLA.com) — The Health Department has taken action after a local supermarket’s frozen foods section featured an unusual item. Inspectors from the LA County Health Department visited the Metro Supermarket in Temple City on Tuesday, after being informed that the market was selling raccoons as food. Employees at the market declined to appear on camera, but did show entire raccoons, frozen, bagged, and selling for $9.99 per pound. The employees say raccoon is considered a delicacy in China. Customer Christina Dow was at the market, and upon seeing the frozen raccoons, filmed the scene on her cell phone. She shared the video on social media. “The way it’s ...

A Very Pernicious Partnership: Keynesian Money Printers And Wall Street Gamblers
Post Date: 2015-02-08 11:19:19 by nativist nationalist
No sooner was the January jobs report released than the Wall Street Journal posted a succinct headline: “Hiring, Wages Pick Up as Job Market Nears Full Health”. Whether the job market is actually as red hot as the BLS’ headline numbers is a debatable topic, but it is absolutely clear that the “emergency” the Fed cited 73 months ago when its pegged the money market rate a zero has long since vanished. Indeed, by the standards of all prior history, ZIRP was a death bed remedy. Prior to December 2008, the Fed had never, ever pegged the funds rate at zero—not even during the Great Depression. So if the US economy did generate new jobs at the 4 million annual rate ...

He’ll Rot For Pot: 55 Years For Weed (Koch bros fight)

Weldon Angelos could have hijacked a plane and spent less time in jail.

Putin Helped Fund Sierra Club and Center for American Progress

Putin Helped Fund Sierra Club and Center for American Progress January 27, 2015 by Daniel Greenfield Looks like the environmental movement should come with a “Made in Moscow” label. And considering that the Center for American Progress is the group with the single biggest policy influence on Obama and is now on board with Ready for Hillary, Russian money going into it should be worrying as Free Beacon’s Lachlan Markay reports. A shadowy Bermudan company that has funneled tens of millions of dollars to anti-fracking environmentalist groups in the United States is run by executives with deep ties to Russian oil interests and offshore money laundering schemes involving ...

OPEC sees oil prices exploding to $200 a barrel
Post Date: 2015-02-04 09:45:48 by Willie Green
Right now the oil market is totally focused on finding a bottom for oil prices. However, according to OPEC's Secretary-General Abdulla al-Badri we've already hit bottom. Not only that, but he sees a real possibility that oil prices could explode higher to upwards of $200 per barrel in the future. He's far from the only one that sees a return of triple-digit oil prices.Finding a bottomAccording to the Secretary-General, speaking in London on Jan. 26, the oil market doesn't need to look for oil prices to bottom as the market has already bottomed. Instead, he offered quite bullish comments by saying, "Now the prices are around $45-$55, and I think maybe they [have] reached ...

Comcast Renames Man ‘Asshole Brown’ After He Tries to Cancel Cable
Post Date: 2015-01-29 11:26:27 by Willie Green
Comcast probably doesn’t relish being one of those companies that many Americans love to hate. But sometimes, the cable giant makes this way too easy. Consider the case of Ricardo Brown. After Brown’s wife had a disagreement with the cable company recently, Comcast started sending him monthly statements under the name “Asshole Brown.” The disagreement happened when Brown’s wife Lisa tried to cancel her cable. She got referred to one of the company’s dreaded “retention specialists,” who apparently didn’t like being told “no,” as Lisa Brown told the blogger Christopher Elliott, who first reported the story. “I was never rude,” ...

Kentucky counties make unprecedented push for right-to-work laws
Post Date: 2015-01-24 11:43:26 by Gatlin
Local governments in Kentucky are taking matters into their own hands in a bid to battle union influence and, they say, make their communities more business- friendly. Kentucky is one of the last states in the South that does not have a so-called right-to-work law, which bar unions from forcing workers to pay dues. But surrounding states like Tennessee do -- and counties along Kentucky’s southern border say they're tired of losing jobs to other southern states. So, in an unprecedented step, county leaders are passing their own right-to- work laws, even as the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives in the state capital refuses to consider one. "We are not growing as ...

The sound of your car’s engine might just be a lie
Post Date: 2015-01-24 08:30:28 by Willie Green
Arguably, one of the best parts about driving a car is putting your foot on the gas and hearing that engine purr ever so sweetly. Well, that rumble may be gone forever — or at least replaced with a shallow, mechanical one. That’s right, if you’ve bought a car within the last few years, chances are you’re not actually hearing your engine growl, but instead a recording of it. The Washington Post broke the secret earlier this week, reporting that the noise coming from under the hood of some of your favorite cars, such as the Ford Mustang or Volkswagen Beetle, is not the actual engine but a synthetic recording of what it’s supposed to sound like. Auto manufacturers ...
