Trivia Question from Yesterday

What musical act is the second best-selling music group of all time?

      ABBA                                                      Source

ABBA was a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972, comprising Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. ABBA is an acronym of the first letters of the band members' first names and is sometimes stylized as a registered trademark. The band became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1975 to 1982. It also won the Eurovision Song Contest 1974, giving Sweden its first triumph in the history of the contest and being the most successful group ever to take part in the competition.

ABBA has sold over 380 million albums and singles worldwide, which makes it one of the best-selling music artists of all time, and the second best-selling music group of all time.        Source

Charlie was first, and correct, with:
   There seems to be some inconsistency in the listings, but maybe it's ABBA. Never a favorite of mine.

  "Dancing Queen" is not at all bad though.

Adam answered:
  This is the sort of question Google is rubbish at.

   Was Elvis an artist or an act? Fuck yes…he was Elvis…..second only to the Beatles. Ambiguous Question for the noted respondent….I like to pick fly-shit out of pepper at times.
  How about them elections. Money wins for the Plutocracy. The people again prove that "Dumbness" is the trending movement. Don't worry….Global Warming won't off us. Probably our Grandchildren! Assclowns Boner and Mitch are already talking about getting that Keystone Pipeline built…they quip that they aren't scientists!

DJ Useo replied:
   Haha! It's Elvis Presley! I lol because I'm working this week on a long mix of bootleg Elvis mashups. Nice timing, M. ;)

Randall said:
   Oh wow, Marty, that's a good one...
  I'm tempted to say the Beatles

  but then who would be #1?
  Here again, I'm guessing, but maybe #1 would be good ol' Elvis?

  But then again I know that Dark Side of the Moon was on Billboard's
  top 100 for decades...

  And the Stones have been around for ever, too...

  what was the question again?
  Oh right: the second best-selling musical group of all time?

  What do I win?

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.

Bans Fracking

Nimby, Texass

Voters approved a ban on hydraulic fracturing in the north Texas town of Denton on Tuesday, making it the first city in the Lone Star State to outlaw the oil and gas extraction technique behind the U.S. energy boom.

The vote in the city of 123,000 was highly symbolic because hydraulic fracturing, better known as fracking, is widely used in Texas, the top crude producer in the United States.

Green groups said the result served as a wake-up call to the industry, but several similar measures failed in cities and counties in Ohio and California.

The Texas Oil & Gas Association, the state's energy lobby, on Wednesday quickly filed for an injunction.

Elsewhere, the Ohio cities of Gates Mills, Kent and Youngstown rejected proposed fracking bans, while Athens approved one. In California, proposed fracking bans failed in Santa Barbara County but passed in Mendocino and San Benito counties, official results and local media reports said.

Christmas Tree From Pennsylvania

Rockefeller Center

An 85-foot Norway spruce from central Pennsylvania will serve as Rockefeller Center's Christmas tree this year.

Workers cut down the 13-ton tree and a crane hoisted it onto a trailer Wednesday morning for the 155-mile journey to midtown Manhattan. It'll be illuminated for the first time on Dec. 3 in a ceremony that's been held since 1933.

The tree came from the home of Dan Sigafoos and Rachel Drosdick-Sigafoos, about three hours west of New York City. The couple says they love the Christmas season and are thrilled to be able to donate the tree.

The annual holiday event at Rockefeller Center attracts tens of thousands of people and is watched by millions more on television.

Old Tree Moved

University of Michigan

A tree that predates the University of Michigan and the city of Ann Arbor - and the American Revolution, for that matter - was settling into its new home on Monday.

Workers moved the tree 500 feet down a pedestrian walkway Oct. 25-26, but the transfer was postponed for a week after an inflatable air bladder helping to hold up the tree burst.

Crews returned to work in Ann Arbor on Monday, spending hours positioning the 250-year-old tree into its new digs near the front entrance to the Stephen M. Ross School of Business.

The tree is being relocated to make way for a $135 million donor-funded expansion of the Ross School. The cost of moving the tree, which could reach $400,000, is being covered by the donor.

The oak dates to at least 1764, which is 73 years before the university moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor and 60 years before the founding of the city that features the bur oak on its official seal.

Prince's Guitarist

Donna Grantis

Prince's Canadian guitarist has apologized to Toronto fans who waited in line for a rumoured secret show that never materialized.

Donna Grantis, from nearby Mississauga, posted a message on Twitter acknowledging the "confusion" that occurred Tuesday.

The rumour originated from a quickly deleted tweet issued from the account of Grantis's band, 3rdEyeGirl: "4th day of November, we need a purple high: OTNOROT CALLING..."

Midway through the afternoon, Live Nation quashed the rumour and announced that no show would happen.

A statement from 3rdEyeGirl said the band's technical crew was in Toronto preparing for possible future gigs but "there was never confirmation of a show."

Bright Future


Staffers at the National Association of Manufacturers traded high-fives inside the group's election war room Tuesday night, as pro-business lobbying groups enthusiastically greeted Republicans' victory in retaking control of the Senate.

With the Republicans' victory, business lobbyists see a golden opportunity to advance their clients' interests on issues ranging from taxes and trade to banking and energy.

Resurgent Republicans, who solidified their House of Representative majority as well as seizing control of the Senate, are expected to advance a broad range of pro-business goals and priorities with new vigor.

Elections such as Tuesday's mark out the playing field for lobbyists for the next two years, presenting new opportunities to advance clients' interests as political leadership changes.

There are thousands of registered lobbyists in Washington - about 22 for every member of Congress - and they earn more than $2 billion a year from businesses, unions and many other groups.

Prepares Motion To Recognize Palestine


French Socialist lawmakers are preparing to submit a motion to parliament asking the government to recognise Palestine as a state, sources said Tuesday, weeks after British MPs passed a similar vote.

The planned move follows the collapse of peace talks between Israel and Palestinian territories and this year's conflict in Gaza in which more than 2,000 Palestinians and dozens of Israelis were killed.

The lower house vote could take place within weeks, and while it is unlikely to change government policy immediately, it would be highly symbolic after a similar move by British MPs last month.

The British lawmakers voted overwhelmingly on October 13 in favour of a non-binding motion to "recognise the state of Palestine alongside the state of Israel as a contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution".

The vote, which Israel warned risked undermining prospects for peace, came after the Swedish government announced it would recognise a Palestinian state -- the first EU member in western Europe to do so.

The traditional figure Zwarte Piet is the companion of Saint Nicolas during a yearly feast celebrated on the evening of 05 December, and has become the subject of much controversy in recent years as some people think it is racist.

Casinos Drop


Macau's casinos saw their worst monthly performance in almost a decade as analysts Wednesday blamed China's corruption crackdown for denting the industry's upmarket segment.

Official figures showed that gambling revenues in the world's biggest gaming centre plunged by 23 percent in October to 28.025 billion patacas ($3.51 billion), when compared to the same month last year.

The magnitude of the decline is the highest since such data became available in 2005, analysts say.

Macau is the only part of China where casino gambling is legal.

It overtook Las Vegas as the world's gaming capital in terms of revenue after the sector was opened up to foreign competition in 2002 -- the city's gambling revenue is now multiple times that of the American city.

China To Punish Officials


China will severely punish officials in Tibet who support the Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader and Nobel laureate, state-run media reported Wednesday.

China's anti-corruption watchdog required officials in the region to concentrate on quashing separatism and maintaining social stability, the Global Times said.

It quoted Ye Dongsong, who headed an inspection team from the Central Commission for Discipline and Inspection (CCDI), the Communist party's internal watchdog, as saying Tibet was not exempt from its much-publicised anti-graft campaign.

In response to the CCDI team's report, Tibet's top Communist party official said the government would severely punish officials who follow the Dalai Lama or support separatism, according to local media.

First Big Challenge


Within minutes of polls closing in Kentucky, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell was declared the victor of a race some doubted he could win and many more hoped he would lose.

Like most recent congressional leaders, McConnell - who in 2009 declared that his party's No. 1 goal would be to defeat President Barack Obama - had become a powerful symbol of his party and a major target for Democrats. His win in Kentucky Tuesday night was the first step toward realizing his career-long dream of becoming Senate majority leader. Outlining his potential approach toward leading the Senate, McConnell delivered what rang at first blush as a wildly optimistic view.

For McConnell and Senate Republicans, governing in the majority could prove to be more difficult than winning it was.

The first test of McConnell's ability to manage intraparty divisions could come as soon as lawmakers return to Washington later this month for a lame-duck session. Congress will have to fund the government (again) to stave off a shutdown, approve a sweeping Department of Defense authorization bill, potentially approve an Iran sanctions measure, and also could clear Eric Holder's replacement as U.S. attorney general.

In all of those cases, McConnell's interests and the interests of the Republican Party may not align with those of individual members, several of whom are mulling 2016 presidential election bids. At least four are flirting with a run for the White House: Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Marco Rubio of Florida and Rob Portman of Ohio.




A moon bear is seen inside a new semi-natural enclosure at a bear rescue center in Tam Dao national park, north of Hanoi November 5, 2014. Animals Asia Foundation, an animal welfare charity, opened four new semi-natural enclosures to house 110 bears which were rescued from the bear bile industry, on Wednesday. According to Animal Asia's press release, there are officially 1978 bears still on bear bile farms in Vietnam, despite the practice being made illegal in 1992. Farmers continue to exploit loopholes to evade closure and arrest.
