Trivia Question from Yesterday

Favomancy is a form of divination that involves throwing what objects?

      Beans                                                      Source

Favomancy is a form of divination that involves throwing beans on the ground and interpreting the patterns into which the beans fall; it is therefore a type of cleromancy. Various forms of favomancy are present across the world's cultures. The term comes from the Latin faba for "bean" and formed by analogy with the names of similar divination methods such as alectromancy.

Favomancy used to be practised by seers in Russia, in particular, among the Ubykh. Russian methods of favomancy may still exist after the departure of the Ubykhs from the Caucasus in 1864, but the details are now lost of exactly how Ubykh soothsayers interpreted the patterns formed by the beans. The Ubykh term for a favomancer simply means "bean-thrower", and it later became a synonym for all soothsayers and seers in general in that language.        Source

Adam answered:
   Beans? Yes, beans!

Deborah replied:
   I'm not familiar with the word "favomancy" so I thought I'd parse it. Favo reminds me of fava, a kind of bean. So favomancy has something to do with beans? Yeah, I'll go with that.

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

The 'Jon Stewart of Egypt'

Bassem Youssef

Bassem Youssef, the man dubbed the "Jon Stewart of Egypt," is eyeing new projects after teaching students at Harvard University's prestigious Kennedy School of Government how satire can disrupt the social and political order.

It's a topic the 41-year-old heart surgeon-turned-satirist knows well. Youssef rocketed to fame after the 2011 Arab Spring revolution as host of a wildly popular Egyptian political satire show.

"El Bernameg" - Arabic for "The Program" - was cancelled in June 2014 amid mounting pressure by the military-led government to crack down on dissenting voices. Youssef and his family, concerned for their safety, left the country months later.

At a recent appearance at a downtown Boston law firm, Youssef said he hasn't ruled out an eventual return to television. He's had plenty of offers, he says, but none caught his interest.

"The offers would be like, 'Forget politics. Why don't you do a game show?'" Youssef says. "That we couldn't do. We can't risk sacrificing the brand."

Cuts Short Guyana Trip

Jimmy Carter

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has cut short a trip to Guyana after feeling unwell and is returning to Atlanta, the Carter Center said on Sunday.

The 90-year-old former U.S. president traveled to the South American country to observe national elections scheduled to take place there on Monday.

In a brief statement, the Carter Center said only that the former president departed on Sunday after "not feeling well."

Monday's ballot in Guyana will be the 100th international election to be observed by the center, which was founded in 1982 by Carter and his wife, Rosalynn, in partnership with Atlanta's Emory University.

Feds Eye Giving Endangered Status

Bryde's Whales

With as few as about a dozen of the mammals left, federal regulators say a unique species of baleen whales in the Gulf of Mexico about 70 miles off the Florida Panhandle may be threatened with extinction and could get special protection from federal regulators.

In April, the National Marine Fisheries Service announced it was looking at granting endangered or threatened status to the small population of Bryde's whales that live in the DeSoto Canyon region, a deep-water area about 50 miles east of the site of BP's catastrophic oil spill five years ago.

The Interior Department has begun to open up a sliver of the eastern Gulf to drilling operations near the whales' habitat. Most of the eastern Gulf remains off-limits to drilling due to a moratorium.

Bryde's whales are found in tropical waters around the world, but the population in the Gulf has been deemed likely a genetically separate species from other baleen whales. Scientists believe there are fewer than 50 of the whales in the Gulf. A recent stock assessment found about 15 of the animals.

"Whenever you have a species down in their tens, it's spooky in terms of their long-term survival," said John Hildebrand, a whale specialist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California-San Diego.

Fire and Ice: Norse Mythology Explained | Made From History


Afghanistan's Goat Farmers


Not so long ago, Afghan farmers collected the thick winter undercoat their goats shed every spring and threw it on the fire to heat their homes and cook their food. Some have since learned that the super-soft fluff that comes off in clumps as the weather warms up, once cleaned, refined and spun into yarn is cashmere - a luxury product that finds customers as far away as the United States, Britain and Europe.

It's changed life for goat herders like Mohammad Amin. He has 120 goats grazing the open spaces around an industrial park on the outskirts of the western city of Herat. At this time of year, most of the female goats have kids and shed the cashmere, which Amin pulls off in huge handfuls.

With an extended family of 13, he has a guaranteed income from the best of the cashmere he harvests as traders, processors, donors and international businesses are cottoning on to Afghanistan's potential as a major producer.

Each animal yields up to 250 grams (8.8 ounces) of cashmere, Amin said. Each season he can earn more than 61,250 afghanis ($1,100) - not bad in a country where the annual national average is less than $700.

Only about 30-40 percent of Afghanistan's 7 million goats are combed for cashmere, according to estimates by the World Bank and the U.S. Agency for International Development, even though up to 95 percent of the animals could become part of the production chain. Most of the raw product is bought by traders who sell it to Chinese middlemen to feed the mills that produce affordable clothing for much of the world.



Wake-up Call


Ordered To Stay Away


A federal judge has ordered Greenpeace protesters to stay away from Royal Dutch Shell PLC ships.

U.S. District Court Judge Sharon Gleason on Friday also prohibited Greenpeace from flying unmanned vehicles over the offshore Arctic area where Shell plans to drill.

The safety-zone injunction is in effect until Oct. 31, reported the Alaska Dispatch News. Shell Offshore Inc. sued on April 7, one day after six Greenpeace protesters boarded the Blue Marlin, a heavy-lift ship carrying a Transocean Ltd. semi-submersible drilling unit, the Polar Pioneer, as it crossed the Pacific.

The injunction establishes buffer zones from 300 feet to about 5,000 feet for all of Shell's Chukchi Sea fleet, anchor lines and buoys attached to ships.

Shell said it was pleased with the injunction.

Oil Leak

Hudson River

Oil leaked into the Hudson River on Sunday after a transformer fire and explosion a day earlier at the Indian Point nuclear plant north of New York City, and Governor Andrew Cuomo said he was concerned about environmental damage.

Cuomo visited the plant for a briefing on Sunday. The governor, who in the past has called for the plant to be shut down because of its proximity to densely populated New York City, also visited the plant on Saturday.

When the transformer exploded, it released oil into a holding tank, which then overflowed, sending oil onto the ground and into the river, Cuomo told reporters on Sunday after he was briefed by emergency and plant officials.

The transformer explosion and fire at the nuclear power reactor 40 miles (65 km) north of New York City was quickly put out. The fire triggered the closure of the plant's Unit 3 reactor, while the other Unit 2 reactor continued to operate.

Texas Students Take Aim At Campus Statue

Jefferson Davis

Pity Jefferson Davis, if you will. Vandals have defaced his statue on the University of Texas campus, most recently with the words "Davis must fall" and "Emancipate UT." Student leaders are also seeking to remove from the Austin campus the century-old statue that recognizes the president of the Confederacy.

"We thought, there are those old ties to slavery and some would find it offensive," said senior Jamie Nalley, who joined an overwhelming majority of the Student Government in adopting a resolution in March supporting his ouster.

But as students take aim at Davis, the number of sites in Texas on public and private land that honor the Confederacy is growing - despite the opposition of the NAACP and others. Supporters cite their right to memorialize Confederate veterans and their role in Texas history, while opponents argue the memorials are too often insensitive or antagonistic, while having the backing of public institutions like UT.

The Texas Historical Commission has recognized more than 1,000 such sites from far South Texas to the upper reaches of the Panhandle. And the Sons of Confederate Veterans are planning others, including a 10-foot obelisk a few miles from the Davis statue to honor about 450 Confederate soldiers buried at the city-owned Oakwood Cemetery.

Nguyen Manh Quan (top), 26, a civil servant, carries a girl using his throat area as he performs during a showcase of the traditional Thien Mon Dao kung fu at Du Xa Thuong village, southeast of Hanoi, Vietnam May 10, 2015. Thien Mon Dao, a traditional Vietnamese martial art, was formed by 18th century villagers in Du Xa Thuong village, who believed the art form could help improve health as well as fight against foreign invaders. There are currently about 3,000 practitioners including farmers, industry workers and state servants. These practitioners say they are able to bend metal against their bodies and carry heavy objects using their throats, eyes or tongues, as well as run across the surface of a river, according to Thien Mon Dao kung fu master Nguyen Khac Phan.

Protesters Protest


Sporting T-shirts and caps printed with marijuana leaves and with joints hanging from their lips, hundreds of people demonstrated in Paris on Saturday as part of a world march calling for the legalisation of cannabis.

Crowds of protesters, many dressed in Jamaican colours, made their way through the streets of the French capital from the Place de la Republique to Bastille calling for the legalisation of recreational marijuana use.

"What do we want? Legalisation," chanted the crowd, wreathed in clouds of hashish smoke and gathered behind a banner reading "Another drug policy is possible" and placards calling for "Ganga for all".

But for others, the Global Marijuana March -- which also held events in Brazil, Greece, Costa Rica, the US, Germany and South Africa among others this month -- was about calling for a better life for the terminally ill.

Cannabis use has been illegal in France since 1970, punishable by one year in prison and a 3,750-euro ($4,200) fine. In practice, imprisonment is rare, although fines continue to be meted out.

Weekend Box Office

"Avengers: Age of Ultron"

The "Age of Ultron" is not over. The Avengers sequel topped the domestic box office for the second weekend in a row with an estimated $77.2 million according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

The film has earned a staggering $312.9 million in just 10 days in theaters, tying with "The Dark Knight" to become the second-fastest film to do so.

"Hot Pursuit," meanwhile, failed to make a significant mark in its debut weekend, earning a less-than-impressive $13.3 million. The Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara buddy comedy, which cost a reported $35 million to produce, was projected to earn at least $18 million out of the gates.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1."Avengers: Age of Ultron," $77.2 million ($68.3 million international).
    2."Hot Pursuit," $13.3 million ($1.4 million international).
    3."The Age of Adaline," $5.6 million ($2.6 million international).
    4."Furious 7," $5.3 million ($19.6 million international).
    5."Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," $5.2 million ($3 million international).
    6."Ex Machina," $3.5 million.
    7."Home," $3 million ($6 million international).
    8."Woman In Gold," $1.7 million.
    9."Cinderella," $1.6 million ($4 million international).
   10."Unfriended," $1.4 million ($3.2 million international).

In Memory

Joanne Carson

Joanne Carson, the second wife of "Tonight Show" host Johnny Carson, has died in Southern California. She was 83.

Ed Rada, the executor of her estate, says Carson died Friday at her longtime home in Los Angeles. Rada says she had been in declining health and was in hospice care.

Born Joanne Copeland in Los Angeles, she married Johnny Carson in 1963, a year after he began hosting "The Tonight Show."

After their divorce in 1972, she became close to writer Truman Capote. He kept a writing room at her house, where he died in 1984.

Rada says she will be interred next to Capote at Westwood Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Joanne Carson had a second marriage late in her life to Richard Rever that also ended in divorce.

You have reached the Home page of BartCop Entertainment.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
