Dara Mohammadi: You can't detox your body. It's a myth. So how do you get healthy? (Guardian)
If toxins did build up in a way your body couldn't excrete, he says, you'd likely be dead or in need of serious medical intervention. "The healthy body has kidneys, a liver, skin, even lungs that are detoxifying as we speak," he says. "There is no known way - certainly not through detox treatments - to make something that works perfectly well in a healthy body work better."

J.F. Sargent, Kyle, Melinda, Rhys: 5 Surprising Insider Facts About Welfare (Cracked)
In a perfect world, this wouldn't be a political subject -- but this is not a perfect world, judging by the trending hashtags we're seeing. So when everyone hates taxes and budget deficits, people getting "welfare" (the generic term for government assistance, food stamps, etc for the poor) become political footballs. And that is a polite way of saying that they get treated like shit to serve somebody else's agenda.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

In 1950, there were 5 companies in North America that manufactured barber poles. How many barber pole manufacturers remain today?

      One                                                      Source

A barber's pole is a type of sign used by barbers to signify the place or shop where they perform their craft. The trade sign is, by a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages, a staff or pole with a helix of colored stripes (often red and white in many countries, but usually red, white, and blue in the United States). The pole may be stationary or may revolve, often with the aid of an electric motor.

Prior to 1950, there were four manufacturers of barber poles in the United States. In 1950, William Marvy of St. Paul, Minnesota, started manufacturing barber poles. Marvy made his 50,000th barber pole in 1967, and, by 2010, over 82,000 had been produced. The William Marvy Company is now the sole manufacturer of barber poles in North America, and sells only 500 per year (compared to 5,100 in the 1960s). In recent years, the sale of spinning barber poles has dropped considerably, since few barber shops are opening, and many jurisdictions prohibit moving signs.        Source

   One, William Marvy Company

   The one remaining is the William Marvy Company in St. Paul, MN.

  I should have realized that wasn't the rabbit's actual name.

Deborah said:
   I looked this up, because I had no idea, and had never pondered the barber's pole. The William Marvy Company is now the sole manufacturer of barber poles in North America, and sells only 500 per year (compared to 5,100 in the 1960s).
  Another fact with which to crush my Trivial Pursuit competitors. Thanks, Marty!

Randall replied:
   You got me, Marty - I haven't a clue how many companies make barber poles anymore.

  I know you sure don't see them around as much as one used to.

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.

International Documentary Association


"CitizenFour," filmmaker Laura Poitras's documentary about National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, was given the top award for best feature by the International Documentary Association on Friday.

The IDA award for "CitizenFour" follows the film's best documentary win at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards this week. It was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award last month and is among 15 films advancing in the Oscars best documentary race.

U.S. filmmaker Poitras shared a Pulitzer Prize this year for her role in publicizing the Snowden documents. She was awarded IDA's Courage Under Fire award last year for her "conspicuous bravery in the pursuit of truth."

The IDA, a 30-year-old non-profit organization that aims to support documentary films and culture, also bestowed honors on veteran actor-filmmaker and Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford, who was given the career achievement award.

Joe DiMaggio's love letter to Marilyn Monroe has sold for $78,125 at a Beverly Hills auction.

Julien's Auctions in Beverly Hills says the letter, written by the baseball great after Monroe announced she was divorcing him, was sold Saturday to an undisclosed buyer.

A handwritten letter from Monroe to her third and final husband, playwright Arthur Miller, sold for $43,750.

Gowns Auctioned

Princess Diana

Five dresses designed for and worn by Britain's late Princess Diana have gone under the hammer in Los Angeles for a total of nearly half a million dollars.

Three of the gowns were made by British dressmaker Catherine Walker, Diana's favorite designer and close personal friend, as well as one by Caroline Charles and another by Zandra Rhodes.

The Catherine Walker dresses all fetched within or just above their estimated price of between $60,000 and $80,000.

The Zandra Rhodes evening gown created for Diana, which was estimated to sell for $80-100,000, went for $100,000.

The Caroline Charles burgundy wool coat dress was the surprise of the five, going for $125,000 -- easily beating its pre-sale estimate of $20-40,000.

Owners Aging

Private Forests

The age of forest landowners across the country is increasing and the size of parcels they own is shrinking - and that has state, federal and private experts fearing for the long-term health of millions of acres of American woodlands.

The concerns of forestry professionals are more subtle than the typical worries over large-scale development: as the parcels of land get smaller the people who own them might not have the same commitment to the forests as the previous landowners.

"Our alarm bells are starting to go off, not because landowners are suddenly older, but because it's been going on long enough now that we are really beginning to see the impacts," said Mary Sisock, an assistant professor of extension forestry at the University of Vermont, who has worked on the issue across the country.

Brett Butler, the coordinator of the U.S. Forest Service's National Woodland Survey, says there's a common misconception that the majority of forest land is owned by the government. Nationally, more than half of the 766 million acres of forest land is owned privately by proprietors whose average age is 62.5.

Chlorine Gas At Furries Convention

Midwest FurFest

Chlorine gas sickened several people and forced the evacuation of thousands of guests from a suburban Chicago hotel early Sunday, including many dressed in cartoonish animal costumes for an annual furries convention who were ushered across the street to a convention center hosting a dog show.

Nineteen people who became nauseous or dizzy were treated at local hospitals, and at least 18 were released shortly thereafter. Within hours, emergency workers decontaminated the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and allowed people back inside. Six-foot-tall rabbits, foxes and dragons poured into the lobby, chatting and giving each other high paws.

"I think we'll recover from this," said Kit McCreedy, a 28-year-old from Madison, Wisconsin, his fox tail swinging behind him as he headed back inside for the last day of the Midwest FurFest. "People are tired but they're still full of energy."

McCreedy was one of a few thousand attendees for the FurFest, in which attendees celebrate animals that are anthropomorphic - meaning they've been given human characteristics - through art, literature and performance. Many of the attendees, who refer to themselves as "furries," wore cartoonish animal outfits.

While authorities conducted their investigation, organizers tried to assure the participants that the evacuation would not overshadow the convention. But attendees seemed to think the evacuation was part of the fun - particularly those who recalled being herded into the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center as it was hosting a dog show.

NKorea Denies Hack, Calls It 'Righteous Deed'


North Korea released a statement Sunday that clearly relished a cyberattack on Sony Pictures, which is producing an upcoming film that depicts an assassination plot against Pyongyang's supreme leader.

While denying responsibility for an attack last week that disrupted Sony's computer system and spewed confidential information onto the Internet, an unidentified spokesman for the North's powerful National Defense Commission acknowledged that it "might be a righteous deed of the supporters and sympathizers" of the North's call for the world to turn out in a "just struggle" against U.S. imperialism.

"We do not know where in America the Sony Pictures is situated and for what wrongdoings it became the target of the attack, nor (do) we feel the need to know about it," the statement carried in state media said. "But what we clearly know is that the Sony Pictures is the very one which was going to produce a film abetting a terrorist act while hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of" North Korea.

Some cybersecurity experts say they've found striking similarities between the code used in the hack of Sony Pictures Entertainment and attacks blamed on North Korea that targeted South Korean companies and government agencies last year.

Experts are divided, however, over the likelihood that North Korea or independent hackers were involved.

US Allies Extend Detention

Women Drivers

Two Saudi women detained nearly a week ago for violating the kingdom's female driving ban were ordered held for 25 more days on Sunday, a relative told The Associated Press.

The women, who were arrested Dec. 1 after driving into Saudi Arabia from the United Arab Emirates, are supporters of a grassroots campaign launched last year to oppose the ban. The two women have a combined Twitter following of more than 355,000.

Organizers behind the Oct. 26 campaign say the ban on women driving underpins wider issues regarding guardianship laws in Saudi Arabia that give men powerful sway over women's lives.

The kingdom's hardline interpretation of Islam holds that allowing women to drive encourages licentiousness. No such ban exists in the rest of the Muslim world, including Saudi Arabia's conservative Gulf neighbors.

Doubling Fees?


A proposal to double the cost to enter Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks in northwest Wyoming is drawing resistance.

The town of Jackson, fishing guides and wildlife safari companies are among those speaking out against a plan that calls for increasing entrance fees for the two neighboring parks.

Under the National Park Service plan, a 7-day pass good for both Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks would increase from $25 to $50. An annual $50 pass good for both parks would be discontinued in favor of each park having its own $60 annual pass.

"We're pricing people out of our public lands, our national heritage," Jackson Town Councilor Jim Stanford told the Jackson Hole News & Guide. "Public lands are not supposed to be managed like a business."

Weekend Box Office

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1"

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" continues to dominate the domestic box office, but awards season hopefuls "Wild" and "The Imitation Game" proved their might with impressive limited release showings on this sleepy post-Thanksgiving weekend.

In its third weekend in release, "Mockingjay - Part 1" earned an estimated $21.6 million. Lionsgate's penultimate chapter in the massively successful franchise has now earned $257.7 million domestically, according to studio estimates Sunday.

While audiences wait for that fresh fare, some still turned out to catch up with the leftovers. DreamWorks Animation's "Penguins of Madagascar" took second place with $11.1 million in its second weekend, while the raunchy Warner Bros. comedy "Horrible Bosses 2" claimed third place with $8.6 million. The fourth and fifth place spots went to Disney's animated "Big Hero 6" and Paramount's space odyssey "Interstellar," which earned $8.13 million and $8.0 million respectively.

The biggest success story of the weekend is The Weinstein Company's Alan Turing biopic "The Imitation Game," which took in an estimated $402,000 from eight locations for a stunning $50,250 per-theater average. Star Benedict Cumberbatch is also expected to be a major contender on the awards circuit this season.

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

    1. "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1," $21.6 million ($31.6 million international).
    2. "Penguins of Madagascar," $11.1 million ($23.5 million international).
    3. "Horrible Bosses 2," $8.6 million ($7.1 million international).
    4. "Big Hero 6," $8.13 million ($4 million international).
    5. "Interstellar," $8 million ($22.8 million international).
    6. "Dumb and Dumber To," $4.17 million ($3.7 million international).
    7. "The Theory of Everything," $2.67 million ($282,000 international).
    8. "Gone Girl," $1.5 million.
    9. "The Pyramid," $1.35 million ($3.8 million international).
   10. "Birdman," $1.15 million.
