Marc Dion: Waiting for the Leader (Creators Syndicate)
The middle and working classes in America are falling behind. Well, the middle class is falling behind. The working class tore up the card in the union they once belonged to and left the world. And we're mad. We focus our rage on black people who receive welfare. In America, today, we talk about welfare recipients the way Hitler talked about Jews.


Sophie Heawood: my life as a trainwreck (The Guardian)
'Unconsciously, trainwrecks get in their own way, complicating life in its immediate presentations, because they fear what they will find out when they stop.'


What I'm really thinking: the student adviser (The Guardian)
'What I resent most are students and other university staff who treat non-academic staff as their personal servants.'


Ask Molly Ringwald: my ugly breasts are stopping me having sex (The Guardian)
'It's a terrible feeling that many women experience because we constantly compare our bodies with impossible-to-attain perfection in the media.'

Trivia Question of the Day


What is the only game show to be honored with the Peabody Award?

Trivia Question from Yesterday


This board game is sold in England as Snakes and Ladders, and in the US it's called Chutes and Ladders. In what country did this game originate?


       India                                                      Source


Snakes and Ladders is an ancient Indian board game regarded today as a worldwide classic.] It is played between two or more players on a gameboard having numbered, gridded squares. A number of "ladders" and "snakes" are pictured on the board, each connecting two specific board squares. The object of the game is to navigate one's game piece, according todie rolls, from the start (bottom square) to the finish (top square), helped or hindered by ladders and snakes respectively.

The game is a simple race contest based on sheer luck, and is popular with young children. The historic version had root in morality lessons, where a player's progression up the board represented a life journey complicated by virtues (ladders) and vices (snakes).        Source

DJ Useo replied:
   I remember this from when I was a kid. It's India! Not China. We used to argue about things like that while playing.
  & then my older brother would be a sore loser, & knock the entire game off the table. What a grouch!




MAM   wrote:

  I played this game with my kids. They didn't like it very well; I think because one seemed to spend more time going down chutes than going up ladders. Hard to win if you move backwards so much.

Family Feud Resolved

Jimi Hendrix

Dueling relatives of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix have reached a settlement after going to court over the rights to T-shirts and other merchandise bearing his image.

The Seattle-born Hendrix, a pioneering player of the electric guitar, died at age 27 in 1970 with no will, leaving his father to take charge of his estate.

The father, Al Hendrix, died in 2002 after transferring rights to the estate to his adopted daughter Janie Hendrix.

The sister, who runs the companies Experience Hendrix and Authentic Hendrix, filed a lawsuit in 2009 against Hendrix Licensing, which was run by Nevada entrepreneur Andrew Pitsicalis with the guitarist's brother, Leon.

Before the case could go to trial, the two sides reached a settlement, a court document showed.

First Digital Map

Seafloor

A new digital map of the composition of the seafloor reveals "microfossil" graveyards off the coast of Australia, as well as other complex deep-ocean geology.

Published Aug. 9 in the journal Geology, the interactive map is available online. It's the first digital map of global seafloor composition, and the first attempt at such a map anyone has made in 40 years. The last version of the map was hand drawn in the 1970s, according to the University of Sydney.

"The old map suggests much of the Southern Ocean around Australia is mainly covered by clay blown off the continent, whereas our map shows this area is actually a complex patchwork of microfossil remains," study author Adriana Dutkiewicz, a sedimentologist at the University of Sydney, said in a statement. "Life in the Southern Ocean is much richer than previously thought."

The microfossils belong to diatoms, a type of phytoplankton that takes in carbon dioxide and expels oxygen. These organisms make about 20 percent of the oxygen in the air that humans breathe. When diatoms die, they sink to the ocean floor, carrying their carbon with them. This makes them an important "carbon sink" that keeps carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, out of the atmosphere, where it can warm the planet.

Electrifying Photo

Rainbow Lightning

A real-estate agent and storm chaser captured a snapshot of a lifetime on Aug. 9, when he photographed a rare duo - an eerie flash of lightning framed by a glorious rainbow - in Tucson, Arizona.

The electrifying image took social media by storm: As of Aug. 14, Greg McCown's photo had garnered more than 1,000 Facebook likes and more than 3,600 retweets.

There's a reason why it went viral: Those types of sightings are incredibly rare. Although 100 lighting bolts strike the Earth every second, the chances of them flashing near a rainbow are slim, said Randall Cerveny, a professor of meteorology at Arizona State University in Tucson.

Lightning bolts illuminate a pathway from the ground to the sky when negatively charged cloud bottoms connect with positive charges on Earth's surface. "When you get a buildup of negative charge in the bottom of a cloud," which occurs when raindrops pull charges down, "opposites attract," Cerveny told Live Science.

The viral photo is especially rare because McCown had to be standing in between the sun and the storm at the exact moment when the angle of the sun hit the raindrops to form a rainbow, and the positive ground charges and negative cloud charges clashed in a flash of lightning.

Art Smashed

Moscow

Sculptures by a renowned Soviet artist on show in central Moscow were smashed after being denounced by Orthodox activists as "blasphemous."

"Delusional people came to the exhibition who broke several works belonging to the Manege collection, by Vadim Sidur," said a spokeswoman for the Manege art centre by the Kremlin walls, Yelena Karneyeva, referring to the activists.

A well-known Orthodox activist Dmitry Tsorionov, known by the nickname Dmitry Enteo, earlier said he was at the Manege exhibition centre.

Enteo, quoted by Interfax news agency, had said the exhibition included an "indecent" depiction of Jesus Christ and was "dirty, harsh mockery of Jesus Christ and the saints."

The head of the nationalist God's Will group is a prominent conservative activist. He cites Orthodox values while picketing and heckling at arts events and protests, sometimes with a television camera crew in tow. This year he attempted to stop a gay pride rally in Moscow.

Helped NSA

AT&T

Telecommunications powerhouse AT&T Inc has provided extensive assistance to the U.S. National Security Agency as the spy agency conducts surveillance on huge volumes of Internet traffic passing through the United States, the New York Times reported on Saturday, citing newly disclosed NSA documents.

The newspaper reported that the company gave technical assistance to the NSA in carrying out a secret court order allowing wiretapping of all Internet communications at the headquarters of the United Nations, an AT&T customer.

The documents date from 2003 to 2013 and were provided by fugitive former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the Times reported.

The documents describe how the NSA's working relationship with AT&T has been particularly important, enabling the agency to conduct surveillance, under various legal rules, of international and foreign-to-foreign Internet communications that passed through network hubs in the United States.

AT&T installed surveillance equipment in at least 17 of its U.S. Internet hubs, far more than competitor Verizon Communications Inc, the Times reported. AT&T engineers also were the first to use new surveillance technologies invented by the NSA, the Times reported.

Anti-Whaling Activists Barred

Faroe Islands

Five activists from the militant Sea Shepherd conservation group have been ordered to leave the Faroe Islands after they tried to disrupt a traditional whale hunt in the autonomous Danish province, police said Saturday.

Four were expelled on Friday, and a fifth was to leave Saturday, police spokesman Christian Jonsson told AFP, adding that they were barred from the islands for a year.

A Faroe Islands court on Friday found the five guilty of disrupting the region's traditional "grind" pilot whale hunt, one of the activists said.

During the hunt, which many locals defend as a cultural right, the three-to-six metre (10-to-20 foot) sea mammals are driven by a flotilla of small boats into a bay, or the mouth of a fjord, before being killed by hand.

The whale meat and blubber are consumed by locals and considered delicacies on the archipelago situated between Norway, Iceland and Scotland.

Mother Grizzly Euthanized

Yellowstone

Wildlife activists' outrage over the killing of a mother grizzly bear blamed in the death of a Yellowstone National Park hiker mounted on Friday as park officials said they were taking precautions after receiving profanity-laced and threatening telephone calls.

The park on Thursday said the 259-pound (117-kg) female grizzly was euthanized after DNA testing linked her to the fatal mauling one week ago of a hiker whose body was discovered partially eaten.

The grizzly's two orphaned cubs, which were trapped by bear managers last week, are being cared for in a captive facility until their transfer to the Toledo Zoo in the fall, Yellowstone spokeswoman Amy Bartlett said.

The park's announcement last week that the grizzly involved in the death the hiker, 63-year-old Lance Crosby of Billings, Montana, would be killed to ensure public safety drew protests by some wildlife advocates. They argued on the park's Facebook pages and in telephone calls and emails to Yellowstone officials that the mother grizzly should be spared.

Crosby was in his fifth season working as a registered nurse for a company that operates urgent-care clinics in Yellowstone.

Raises Warning Level On Volcano

Japan

Japan warned on Saturday that a volcano 50 km (31 miles) from a just-restarted nuclear reactor is showing signs of increased activity, and said nearby residents should prepare to evacuate.

Sakurajima, a mountain on the southern island of Kyushu, is one of Japan's most active volcanoes and erupts almost constantly. But a larger than usual eruption could be in the offing, an official at the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

"There is the danger that stones could rain down on areas near the mountain's base, so we are warning residents of those areas to be ready to evacuate if needed," the official added.

The agency also said it had raised the warning level on the peak, 990 km southwest of Tokyo, to an unprecedented 4, for prepare to evacuate, from 3. Roughly 100 people could be affected.

Japan on Tuesday restarted a reactor at the Sendai nuclear plant, some 50 km from Sakurajima. It is the first reactor to be restarted under new safety standards put in place after the 2011 Fukushima disaster.

Gravestone Returns To Texas

Lee Harvey Oswald

A Dallas man won a long battle to retrieve a notorious piece of U.S. history, the gravestone of assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, which came back to Texas this week from a small-town Illinois museum after a years of legal fights.

David Card had to fight relatives and an Illinois museum to bring back the headstone that spent a few years on the grave of the man who shot President John F. Kennedy in 1963 in Dallas.

"It was ours, and it is the original headstone of the most famous and infamous assassin in the history of Western civilization … maybe of all time," said Card, owner of a prominent Dallas music club, who is limited on what he can say under terms of the settlement deal.

Before turning up in the Historic Automotive Attractions museum in Roscoe, Illinois in 2009, it had been stolen, recovered, hidden away, forgotten and then passed around among Card family relatives.

The original headstone was stolen from the cemetery four years after Kennedy's death as a prank by Oklahoma teenagers. It was found by police and returned to Oswald's mother, Marguerite Oswald, who stashed it away in her Fort Worth home.
