The traditional Mediterranean diet can be considered mainly, but not exclusively, as a plant-based diet, and certainly not a whole foods, plant-based diet. Olive oil and wine can be considered essentially fruit juices. Even if one is eating a "vegiterranean diet," an entirely plant-based version, there are a number of problematic nutritional aspects that are rarely talked about. For example, the Mediterranean diet includes lots of white bread, white pasta and not a lot of whole grains.

To make the performance of a tedious, exacting, time-consuming task riveting to watch, it is only necessary for the activity to be illegal. This is the lesson of heist movies, in which rigorous attention to process and stripped-down purity of focus are wedded to crowd-pleasing elements of suspense, violence, and hard-boiled patter.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Who is the first and to date only person to have served as both Vice President and President of the United States without being elected to either office?

       Gerald R. Ford                                                      Source

Gerald Rudolph Ford, Jr. (born Leslie Lynch King, Jr.; July 14, 1913 - December 26, 2006) was an American politician who served as the 38th President of the United States from 1974 to 1977. Prior to this he was the 40th Vice President of the United States, serving from 1973 until President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974. He was the first person appointed to the vice presidency under the terms of the 25th Amendment, following the resignation of Vice President Spiro Agnew on October 10, 1973. Becoming president upon Richard Nixon's departure on August 9, 1974, he claimed the distinction as the first and to date only person to have served as both Vice President and President of the United States without being elected to either office.        Source

Mark. was first and correct with:
   Gerry Ford became vice president and president without being elected to either position.

zorch said:
   Gerry Ford.

Randall wrote:

  Why... that would be old Gerald Ford
  He took over as VP when Spiro Agnew had to resign in disgrace and then took over as P when Nixon had to resign in disgrace
  Weird weather here in the Dakotas... warm and foggy today!
  Headin for Vegas, baby!
  Will be AFK for a week or so be good - stay warm

Alan J replied:
   Gerald Ford.

Adam answered:
   Gerald Ford, I think.

mj responded:
   A kind of tragic figure, really
  Gerald Ford was appointed to replace Spiro Agnew when he was forced to resign, then succeeded Richard Nixon when he escaped on the last helicopter of his administration.

Stephen F said:
   Gerald Ford

gene wrote:
   The man who didn't get elected President because of the heat he took for Nixon. It was Gerald Ford, who had a quite interesting career in public service and life. (Born Leslie King, Jr, adopted by his Mother's second husband and became Gerald Ford, Jr)

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Gerald R. Ford

Deborah replied:
   I'm guessing it was Gerald Ford. I don't remember how he became VP, but I know he became President when Nixon resigned (I remember watching that speech as a very young adult and knowing that I was watching history).
  It's raining again, hard, with wind. I haven't seen a January like this since 1997. Welcome back, regular winter.
  I'll be in mourning today, and perhaps drinking too much tonight. Tomorrow I'm headed to Sacramento for a march. It's my duty as an American to dissent peacefully. The person who is not my president won't care, but perhaps our other elected officials will pay attention.
  Somehow, TGIF seems more like a curse than a hopeful expression of anticipation.

Dave in Tucson answered:
   The only person to serve as Vice President and President of the US is that notorious Nixon pardoner Gerald Ford. It could be argued that's what started the once proud Republican Party's metamorphosis to the extremist scofflaw party it is today.

TV Series Delayed Indefinitely

"Star Trek: Discovery,"

Bad news, aspiring Starfleet captains: "Star Trek: Discovery," the first new Trek TV series since "Enterprise" went off the air more than a decade ago, has been delayed. We have no new date for when it might finally engage.

"Discovery" is to be set about a decade before the events of the original Kirk & Spock "Star Trek" TV series, and would follow the crew of the USS Discovery. Its 13-episode run was scheduled to being this month, then pushed back until May 2017. At one point the showrunner even stepped down. Now CBS says the show won't begin in May either, because of delays for casting and rewrites.

Nevertheless, the series is still forging ahead. CBS Television today announced that Gotham and True Blood star James Frain has joined the cast as Sarek, the father of Spock. He'll work alongside The Walking Dead's Sonequa Martin-Green, who was recently cast as the series lead , as well as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh , who will play a Starfleet captain.

Manager Stole $5 Million

Alanis Morissette

The manager of rocker Alanis Morissette has admitted to fleecing the singer of nearly $5 million and falsely claiming the money was used to grow marijuana.

Jonathan Todd Schwartz agreed to plead guilty to embezzling the money in court papers filed in Los Angeles federal court.

Schwartz admitted that between May 2010 and January 2014 he withdrew about $4.8 million from Morissette's account without her knowledge and labeled the unauthorized cash withdrawals as "sundry/personal expenses" on accounting records.

When confronted about the missing funds, he then lied and claimed the money was used as an investment to illegally grow cannabis.

Schwartz also admitted to embezzling more than $1.7 million from one other unidentified celebrity and a sports figure.

Scientists Enter Dome


Six scientists have entered a dome perched atop a remote volcano in Hawaii where they will spend the next eight months in isolation to simulate life for astronauts traveling to Mars, the University of Hawaii said.

The study is designed to help NASA better understand human behavior and performance during long space missions as the U.S. space agency explores plans for a manned mission to the Red Planet.

The crew will perform geological field work and basic daily tasks in the 1,200-square-foot (365 m) dome, located in an abandoned quarry 8,000 feet (2.5 km) above sea level on the Mauna Loa volcano on Hawaii's Big Island.

There is little vegetation and the scientists will have no contact with the outside world, said the university, which operates the dome.

Communications with a mission control team will be time-delayed to match the 20-minute travel time of radio waves passing between Earth and Mars.

Quoted Bane

Inauguration Speech

A line from President Donald Trump's (R-Pendejo) inauguration speech on Friday eerily echoed the Batman villain Bane.

After Trump's speech, people quickly noticed one line's similarity to a Bane quote from the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises," which came out in 2012.

"Today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another - but we are transferring power from Washington, DC, and giving it back to you, the people," Trump said in his speech.

Not exactly the same, but it's close to what Bane, played by Tom Hardy, says of Gotham when he holds the city hostage and removes its police and powerful officials.

"We take Gotham from the corrupt! The rich! The oppressors of generations who have kept you down with myths of opportunity, and we give it back to you, the people," Bane said.

Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage, who led the campaign for Britain to leave the European Union, will be a political analyst on Fox News and Fox Business Network, Fox News said on Friday.

Farage will appear on both daytime and prime-time programming for the networks, whose parent company is 21st Century Fox Inc.

Farage, the former leader of the United Kingdom's Independence Party, lead the charge for the UK's "Brexit" vote last year to leave the European Union.

He also was a major supporter of Donald Trump (R-Sock Puppet), who was sworn in as president of the United States on Friday. Farage attended the inauguration in Washington as a guest of Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant.

Farage was a founding member of the Independence Party in 1993 and its leader from 2006 to 2009 and then again from 2010 to 2016. He has said he wants to be a bridge between Trump's administration and the British government.

Rise Ahead

Sea Level

Scientists who study patterns of natural shifts in the Earth's climate said Thursday they have uncovered a "worrisome" signal that major sea level rise could be on the way.

The findings in the journal Science show that ocean surface temperatures during the Earth's last warm period, some 125,000 years ago, were remarkably similar to today.

But what concerns scientists is that sea level back then was 20-30 feet (six to nine meters) above what it is today.

"The trend is worrisome," said the report led by researchers at Oregon State University, University College Dublin, the University of Wisconsin and the Science Museum of Virginia.

Judge Orders Wilderness Data Destroyed


Idaho must destroy all information collected from tracking collars placed on elk and wolves obtained illegally by landing a helicopter in a central Idaho wilderness area, a federal judge ordered Thursday.

U.S. District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill in the 24-page ruling said it's such an extreme case that "the only remedy that will directly address the ongoing harm is an order requiring destruction of the data."

Winmill said the U.S. Forest Service in January 2016 broke environmental laws when it authorized Idaho Fish and Game to put collars on elk by making helicopter landings in the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, where engines are prohibited.

The state agency placed the collars on about 60 elk to gather information it said was needed to better understand what was causing reductions in the elk population in the wilderness.

But state workers also put collars on four wolves in an action the Forest Service didn't authorize. The state agency blamed miscommunication with a helicopter crew.

White-Collar Threatened


If your job involves inputting reams of data for a company, you might want to think about retraining in a more specialised field. Or as a plumber.

After industrial robots and international trade put paid to many manufacturing jobs in the West, millions of white-collar workers could now be under threat from new technology such as artificial intelligence (AI).

The issue of how best to face up to this "Fourth Industrial Revolution" has been exercising politicians and business leaders this week at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss Alpine town of Davos.

The progress of artificial intelligence has been "staggering" in recent years, said Vishal Sikka, chief executive of Indian IT services giant Infosys.

But much more dislocation could yet be coming, and both the public and Western governments need to wake up to the challenge, observers say.
