Mark Coker: Amazon Lowers Kindle Unlimited Payouts (Smashwords Blog)
Last Friday in a bit of news that was missed by most indie authors, Amazon quietly announced that because they're pricing their Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription service at $3.00 per month in India, authors will now earn less.

Joe Nocera: And That's My Opinion! (NY Times)
Opinions. That's what we do in Op-Ed: We render informed opinions that we hope are smart and sometimes provocative, backed up by good, old-fashioned shoe leather. I'm heading off to a new assignment, and as I do, please indulge me as I toss off a few last opinions: …

David Brooks: Schools for Wisdom (NY Times)
"Most Likely to Succeed" is inspiring because it reminds us that the new technology demands new schools. But somehow relational skills have to be taught alongside factual literacy. The stairway from information to knowledge to wisdom has not changed. The rules have to be learned before they can be played with and broken.

Michele Hanson: This snobby country refuses to see practical as equal to academic (The Guardian)
No wonder the new apprenticeship scheme is floundering. Our leaders just see clever or clueless, intellectual or nothing.

Rebecca Schuman: Is This the Worst Free-Market Higher-Ed Idea Ever? (Slate)
It doesn't work in the construction business, and it won't work in academia, either.

David Brooks: The Evolution of Simplicity (NY Times)
Early in life you choose your identity by getting things. But later in an affluent life you discover or update your identity by throwing away what is no longer useful, true and beautiful.

Cezary Jan Strusiewicz, Anonymous: 5 Things I Learned Slaughtering Millions Of Chickens (Cracked)
People in the U.S. eat 8 billion chickens a year -- more than one chicken per person in the entire population of planet Earth. The only thing scarier than that number is trying to imagine the insane efficiency such finger-lickin' slaughter must require. So, we decided to ask Sam, a supervisor at a large-scale chicken farm, about how they manage to kill and package millions of birds each week. He says ...

Ann Friedman: "Shaved and savage: has comedian Margaret Cho finally gone too far?" (The Guardian)
She has bust every taboo going. But has the caustic comic gone too far with her new song about rape? She talks about being accused of racism, falling out with Tracey Emin - and why she loves British audiences.

Throwback Thursday Trivia Question of the Day

What is the name of this hippie kitty?


Send your answer to Marty

Trivia Question from Yesterday

On the TV series Gunsmoke, what is the name of Miss Kitty's saloon?

       Long Branch Saloon                                                      Source

Gunsmoke is an American radio and television Western drama series created by director Norman Macdonnell and writer John Meston. The stories take place in and around Dodge City, Kansas, during the settlement of the American West. The central character is lawman Marshal Matt Dillon, played by William Conrad on radio and James Arness on television. When aired in the UK, the television series was initially titled Gun Law, later reverting to Gunsmoke.

The television show first portrayed Kitty as a saloon employee (dance-hall girl/prostitute) then later as the owner of the Long Branch Saloon.        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:
   The Long Branch Saloon.

   The place where the women never went upstairs with the customers
  Was The Long Branch Saloon.

Sara in upstate NY said:
   So weird how things are ingrained in our DNA from childhood............
  The Long Branch Saloon came out of me as soon as I read the question.
  How do I know that so readily?
  I was trying to remember how many inches in length my daughter was when she was born and couldn't even fathom a guess..........

Randall replied:
   Seems to me it was
  The Long Branch

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Long Branch Saloon

Adam answered:
   According to GunsmokeNet (your wiki for everything Gunsmoke), it's. ' The Long Branch'.

Marian replied:
   Long Branch

Desperado Dale of Diamond Springs, Norfallcali responded:
   Miss Kitty worked at the Longbranch Saloon. I worked at the Longbranch Saloon in Bezerkeley in the early 70's. Fun times…All available for a poke

Non-Lucid Lois Of Oregon replied:
   Crap I'm getting senile. Forgot to submit trivia answer yesterday, but Turkey Nuts totally tie in with Long Branches! Was surprised to learn the Long Branch Saloon was REAL, and it WASN'T named after Mat Dillon's junk, but a place referred to as the "Hollywood Of New Jersey". No information regarding whose penis Long Branch New Jersey was named after.

  For Dale...the REAL Groucho.

   Okay, up late Tuesday, early Wed. for a 3 hr. meeting, followed 45 min. later by a 1 hr. meeting, followed by my annual with my doc, including blood draw & flu shot, followed by yet another meeting, followed by 2-½ hrs. writing & translating an offer. Woof.
  So my search for "Miss Kitty's Saloon" resulted in a lot of "Hello Kitty" stuff.
  After a few minutes I realized that Gunsmoke is the name of the saloon. My family wasn't into westerns, so I watched a few episodes in reruns but never had the connection.
  Really glad I didn't search using a colloquialism for "kitty." Yikes.

The procedure went well and Noah was expected back on the show Thursday, the network said.

A repeat episode aired Wednesday.

Egypt Pyramid Theory

Ben Carson

Egypt's pyramids were built by the biblical Joseph to store grain and were not, as archaeologists believe, tombs for pharaohs, Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson (R-Screw Loose) has said.

The retired neurosurgeon seeking his party's nomination for the White House made these remarks in a 1998 address at Andrews University, a school associated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church, to which he belongs, in a video posted Wednesday on Buzzfeed. The church is a conservative evangelical Christian one.

"My own personal theory is that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain," Carson said.

"Now all the archeologists think that they were made for the pharaohs' graves. But, you know, it would have to be something awfully big if you stop and think about it. And I don't think it'd just disappear over the course of time to store that much grain."

Carson added: "And when you look at the way that the pyramids are made, with many chambers that are hermetically sealed, they'd have to be that way for various reasons. And various of scientists have said, 'Well, you know there were alien beings that came down and they have special knowledge and that's how, you know, it doesn't require an alien being when God is with you."

Kennedy Center Honor Postponed

The Eagles

This year's Kennedy Center Honors will go on without the Eagles, the rock band that will be honoured next year because member Glenn Frey's health won't allow him to attend next month's ceremony.

The Kennedy Center announced Wednesday that the Eagles' honour would be postponed by a year. According to a statement from the band, Frey "has had a recurrence of previous intestinal issues, which will require major surgery and a lengthy recovery period."

The Kennedy Center says Frey plans to attend next year's ceremony along with fellow Eagles Don Henley, Timothy Schmit and Joe Walsh.

This year's other honorees are actresses Rita Moreno and Cicely Tyson, singer-songwriter Carole King, filmmaker George Lucas and conductor Seiji Ozawa.

Drawing Discovered

Paul Cezanne

While removing an old backing from a Paul Cezanne watercolor in preparation for a major auction next week, Christie's says it made an exciting discovery - a pencil drawing by the French post-impressionist artist on the reverse side of the painting.

The watercolor, "Trees Along A Road," has been in the collection of a New Orleans family since 1956.

The drawing also offers a clue to the probable date of the watercolor's execution that had previously been unclear. It looks similar in composition to an 1884 painting in the collection of the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California, titled "Chestnut Trees and the farm at Jas de Bouffan," the auction house said.

The drawing depicts three rounded tree trunks in the foreground and foliage and architectural elements in the background.

Earlier this year, similar discoveries were made on the backs of two Cezanne watercolors in the collection of the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia. The two unfinished sketches - one graphite and the other watercolor - also were found after paper backing was removed.

Wake-up Call


3 Conservative School Board Members Ousted


Suburban Denver voters on Tuesday ousted three conservative school board members who changed the way teachers are paid and briefly considered reviewing a U.S. history curriculum to promote patriotism.

The high-profile political battle attracted a huge influx of cash from inside Jefferson County and from outside groups with an interest in what education reforms should look like.

By overwhelming margins, voters agreed to recall Ken Witt, Julie Williams and John Newkirk, who were elected into office in 2013 and made up the majority in the five-member board of the second-largest school district in the state. Voters also picked their replacements Tuesday, and two other school board members were also selected.

Those up for recall and the people who wanted them out of office each had the backing of heavy hitters who donated hundreds of thousands of dollars. Recall supporters included teacher unions, while Witt, Williams, and Newkirk were backed by the conservative powerhouse Americans For Prosperity.

All to compete for unpaid board positions.

Former Journey Drummer

Deen Castronovo

Former Journey drummer Deen Castronovo recently sat down for a brutally honest interview, his first after completing court-ordered drug rehabilitation.

Castronovo spoke with The Statesman Journal Monday at his oldest son's home in Keizer, Oregon, with no publicist or attorney by his side.

"It's my truth, I have nothing to hide," he said. "I was a verbally abusive man. I was a physically abusive man."

He recounted details of what led up to his arrest on domestic violence charges in June. Domestic violence counselling is a component of his probation, and has taught him the 24-day methamphetamine binge leading up to his arrest is not to blame, he said.

Castronovo is serving four years of supervised probation on charges including domestic violence assault, unlawful use of a weapon and coercion. He says he emotionally, verbally and physically abused his former fiancee and will always be indebted to her for calling the police.

Wins $23 Million Payout

'Secret Wife'

A woman who says she was secretly married to Saudi Arabia's late king Fahd won her claim for a multi-million pound payout from his son at London's High Court on Tuesday.

Judge Peter Smith ruled that Janan Harb was entitled to more than £15 million ($23 million/21 million euros), plus the deeds to two plush London flats, thought to be worth £5 million each.

He accepted that the absolute ruler's son Prince Abdul Aziz bin Fahd had struck such an agreement with Harb, honouring the king's promise that she would be looked after for the rest of her life.

Born to a Christian Palestinian family, Harb, 68, is now a British national.

She says she was secretly married to Fahd in 1968 when she was 19 and he was a prince and the interior minister.

Heart Laid To Rest

Queen Marie of Romania

The heart of British-born Queen Marie of Romania was finally laid to rest on Tuesday after criss-crossing the nation for 77 years.

Encased in a small silver casket, the heart was brought to Pelisor Castle in the Carpathian Mountains and placed in the room where, in the former royal family's words, it "beat for the last time".

Marie's descendants were among those watching as the casket, draped in the British and Romanian flags, was carried out of the National History Museum in Bucharest by two soldiers, accompanied by eight officers on horseback, to the tune of both nations' anthems.

A crowd of several hundred watched as the heart of Marie, a grand-daughter of Britain's Queen Victoria, was carried in a procession along the wide Calea Victoriei boulevard before being transported by car to Pelisor, 120 kilometres (75 miles) north of the capital.

The wife of King Ferdinand I, who reigned from 1914 to 1927, Marie died in 1938.

Sugar Vs. Corn Syrup


Corn refiners cannot "make stuff up" and claim that high fructose corn syrup is the equivalent of sugar, an attorney for big sugar processors said in court on Wednesday.

Opening statements began in a lawsuit pitting sugar processors against major corn refiners including Archer Daniels Midland Co and Cargill Inc. The billion-dollar lawsuit could shape how consumers view two bitter foes in a deteriorating U.S. sweetener market.

Several sugar refiners including global leader ASR Group sued in 2011, alleging that a corn trade group's ad campaign describing high fructose corn syrup as "corn sugar" and "natural" was false. The corn refiners countersued, saying the Sugar Association falsely claimed in its newsletter that corn syrup causes obesity and cancer.

In a Los Angeles federal courtroom on Wednesday, sugar attorney W. Mark Lanier said "sugar is sugar" and corn syrup is not.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2012 ruled that corn syrup, used to sweeten foods including soda, could not be called sugar. The sugar growers are seeking $1.1 billion in compensatory damages over the prior advertising campaign, plus punitive damages and fees, Lanier said on Tuesday.

The corn refiners are seeking about $530 million in their countersuit.

Giant Crack Explained


A gaping crack the length of six football fields that opened up in a matter of one to two weeks in northern Wyoming is likely the product of a landslide, geologists said.

A hunter looking for antelope discovered the jagged gash near Ten Sleep, a town in rural Wyoming by the Bighorn Mountains, on Oct. 1, reported 9NEWS, a local CBS channel in Wyoming. With an estimated size of 750 yards long by 50 yards across (686 meters by 46 meters), the open fracture wasn't exactly something the hunter could traverse.

A landslide is the likeliest explanation for the ragged feature, said Seth Wittke, a geologic manager with the Wyoming State Geological Survey, who said he has seen photos of the zipperlike split, but has yet to visit it in person.

It's unclear why the landslide happened when it did, but experts dismissed several explanations. Wyoming did have a particularly wet spring, but there's no evidence the extra rainfall contributed to the landslide, Wittke said.

Breeder Siegfried Marth is raising some 700 geese organically for the traditional 'Martin Goose' (Martini Gansl) dinner in celebration of St. Martin each year. The feast of St. Martin of Tours (also called "Martini") marks the time when new wines are tasted, cattle are butchered and geese are at their prime. This feast is celebrated in German-speaking Europe on November 11 usually with a roast goose.
