Can Parkinson's be cured by walking, or blindness by 'higher judo'? These cures and their emphasis on the patient's willpower and moral fibre are, at best, bizarre.

When Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now was released in Britain in 1973, it was the main feature on a double bill with Robin Hardy's The Wicker Man. I can still recall emerging from the experience elated and also in something like a state of shock.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Nephology is the science of ____?____

      Clouds                                                      Source

The science of clouds is nephology.        Source

Randall was first, and correct, with:
   NEPHOLOGY is the study of clouds

Charlie, whose artwork wouldn't open, wrote:
   Study of clouds, like the kind I don't like to see approaching when I'm out bicycling miles away from shelter.
  Why that thought occurs right now is weird, since right now it's 12 below Fahrenheit here, and it will probably be a few weeks at least before we get any kind of riding weather.
  Had to keep the faucets dripping overnight, frozen pipes are a bad scene.

Alan J said:
   Cloud Study

Deborah replied:
   Nephology = the study of clouds.
  And how did I miss vinegar? Doh! I use it as a rinse or my workout/cycling clothes, to kill any bacteria that might make those clothes smell over time
  And eww, eye worms!

Adam answered:

Marian responded:

Deliberate Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali, said:
   Nephology is a branch of meteorology dealing with clouds. I'll see if I can find a Kidney shaped cloud. No, that's effin nephrology. Back to clouds. They can fill the Grand Canyon. Or foreboding weird. Or a better place to put your head. Or you can be Charlize Theron in "Head in the Clouds."

MAM   wrote:
   Clouds and cloud formation.

Nebulous Lois Of Oregon replied:
   Wow, really had to do some homework on this one! According to my published-in-2000 copy of Merram-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition: nephoscope, 1881, instrument for observing the direction & velocity of clouds. No mention of nephology being a separate science from meteorology, but obviously, the "clouds" in 1881 (or even in 2000) weren't as interesting as our present day varieties.
  Thanks to nephology, I am now awaiting the publication of a "Cloud Atlas"!
  Ha ha, had to buy that damn movie and watch it THREE TIMES before I could figure out the TITLE!

DJ Useo responded:
   Clouds! When I was in Jr High, I got to participate in a weather study that include measuring rain fall, & identifying clouds.
  I found it quite interesting then, & I appreciate your trivia question now. Thanks.
  Wow! There's a cloud that looks like Obama's Attorney General Nominee trying to answer tough questions! Lol!

   What Joni Mitchell wrote:

     Rows and flows of angel hair
     And ice cream castles in the air
     And feather canyons everywhere,
     I've looked at clouds that way.

     But now they only block the sun,
     They rain and snow on everyone
     So many things I would have done,
     But clouds got in my way.

     I've looked at clouds from both sides now
     From up and down and still somehow
     It's cloud's illusions I recall
     I really don't know clouds at all...
  Joni Mitchell - Both Sides, Now [Original Studio Version, 1969] - YouTube


  Judy, yours was okay, but it belongs to Joni...


  I can read clouds... Yep, I'm a weather wonk. I can tell ya when it's gonna rain, or snow, without having to listen to the local weather woman on TV, or check Accuweather online (I love and check that website daily anyway)... I have a very accurate barometer, or 'Glass' as mariners call 'em, too. I became fascinated with the weather when I had to pay attention to it while a Coastguardsman - As a Coxswain, of course - and for fun when I was Officer-in-Charge of Whitehead Island Light and Fog Signal Station on the Maine coast (Yep, I'm one of the last of the American Lighthouse Keepers - they are all automated now. The CG automated it soon after I moved on to SAR. You can tell your friends that you are acquainted with one of those rare creatures). Anyway, Whitehead was a NWS weather observation station. Every four hours, 24/7, we had to call in our detailed reports - the usual data. The chartroom, our maritime office, had all manner of neat-o texts on the weather - and clouds in our, again, neat-o maritime reference library. I loved 'em all. Those books were my life. When I had the watch, my reports often included daytime cloud formations even though it wasn't really required unless ominous... So, I know about clouds - and I love 'em - as I do Joni's song...

Cleaning fruits & vegetables

When I was in Liberia, we used bleach & water to clean fruits and vegetables before eating. If the water purifier wasn't working, we put bleach in the water before drinking it.

I had to get a plague shot before going to Liberia. It was a tough place to live. Termites swarmed in my bedroom on two occasions. (Thank goodness my houseman cleaned the mess up!) I only lasted one school year before I had had enough.

from Marc Perkel


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.

Surveyors Determine New Height

Washington Monument

Government surveyors have determined a new height for the Washington Monument that's nearly 10 inches shorter than what has been thought for more than 130 years, officials will announce Monday.

The new measurement puts the monument at 554 feet, 7 and eleven-thirty-seconds of an inch, as measured from the floor of the main entrance to the top. Ever since the stone obelisk was completed in 1884, however, the historic height has been recorded at 555 feet, 5 and 1/8 inches. It's a number circulated for decades on tours of the capital and in civics classes about the monument honoring the nation's first president.

So could this be a case of an incredible shrinking monument? Has it sunk into the ground more than previously thought? No, not even close, said the chief scientist at the National Geodetic Survey, which conducted the measurement with accuracy to within one millimeter.

Modern international standards from the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat - an official guideline for building measurements - call for a different base point than what was likely used in the 1880s, said Dru Smith, chief geodesist with the National Geodetic Survey. The standard measures from the lowest open-air pedestrian entrance to the building.

Czech Ecosystem

Wild Ponies

Wild ponies vanished from Czech soil thousands of years ago but are now making a comeback thanks to an imported herd that conservationists hope will rescue an unique ecosystem.

The 14 light brown mares chomp on grass in a small enclosure in Milovice, a small town just east of the capital Prague, as they recover from a long journey from Exmoor National Park in England.

The stocky animals with black-and-tan noses, who stand four feet (1.25 metres) tall, are one of just a handful of wild horse herds living in Central and Eastern Europe.

Archaeological research shows that groups of wild horses galloped across this part of the continent as far back as 4,700-3,700 BC before being domesticated.

"It's the first time the Czech Republic will use ponies to save an ecosystem -- a steppe in this case," says Dalibor Dostal from the non-profit organisation Ceska krajina (Czech countryside).

Big Yang Theory

Chinese New Year

Sheep or goat? China's coming lunar new year has stirred a debate over which zodiac creature is the correct one -- but Chinese folklorists dismiss the fixation on animals as missing the point.

Traditional astrology in China attaches different animal signs to each lunar year in a cycle of 12 years.

The symbol for the new year starting on February 19 is the "yang", which can refer to any member of the caprinae subfamily -- or even beyond -- depending on what additional Chinese character it is paired up with.

For example, a goat is a "mountain yang", a sheep is a "soft yang" and a Mongolian gazelle is a "yellow yang".

Folklorists say it does not matter which one is used since the zodiac sign was chosen for the Chinese character's auspicious connotation rather than the specific animal -- at least in the beginning.

Bans Child Marriage


Malawi has passed a law banning child marriage, raising the minimum age to 18 in a country where half of girls end up as child brides.

Women rights campaigners hailed the move as "a great day for Malawian girls" and said the law would help boost development in one of the world's poorest countries.

But they warned Malawi would not end child marriage without concerted efforts to tackle poverty and end harmful traditional practices like early sexual initiations.

Malawi has one of the world's highest rates of child marriage. Half of girls wed before their 18th birthday and nearly one in eight is married by 15.

Loses $10 Million Arbitration Ruling

Lance Armstrong

An arbitration panel ordered Lance Armstrong and Tailwind Sports Corp. to pay $10 million in a fraud dispute with a promotions company for what it called an "unparalleled pageant of international perjury, fraud and conspiracy" that covered up his use of performance-enhancing drugs.

Dallas-based SCA Promotions announced the 2-1 decision against the former cyclist when its lawyers said Monday they had asked Texas' 116th Civil District Court in Dallas to confirm the arbitration ruling, dated Feb. 4. The panel included a neutral chairman, who ruled in favor of SCA, and one person selected by each side.

Tim Herman, a lawyer for Armstrong, insisted the ruling is contrary to Texas law and predicted it will be overturned by a judge.

SCA paid Armstrong and Tailwind, the since-dissolved team management company, about $12 million in bonuses during Armstrong's career, when he won seven Tour de France titles. Those victories were stripped after Armstrong and his U.S. Postal Service teams were found to have used banned performance-enhancing drugs.

SCA disputed the bonuses in arbitration in 2005, and the case produced the foundation of the doping evidence later used against him. Despite allegations of cheating, Armstrong continued to deny doping and the company settled with Armstrong and paid him $7 million in 2006.

Bulgarian Muslim bride Fikrie Bindzheva poses during her wedding ceremony in the village of Ribnovo, in the Rhodope Mountains, February 15, 2015. The remote mountain village of Ribnovo in southwest Bulgaria has kept its traditional winter marriage ceremony alive despite decades of Communist persecution, followed by poverty that forced many men to seek work abroad. The wedding ritual was resurrected with vigour among the Pomaks - Slavs who converted to Islam under Ottoman rule. The highlight of the ceremony is the painting of the bride's face, where in a private rite open only to female in-laws, her face is covered in thick, chalky white paint and decorated with colourful sequins.

Lawmaker / Humorist / Liar


A Montana lawmaker who suggested that wearing yoga pants in public should be illegal while he was introducing a bill to expand the state's decency laws now says he was joking about a ban on the popular form-fitting workout attire.

Last week during its story on the proposed legislation, the Associated Press quoted Moore as saying, "Yoga pants should be illegal in public anyway."

The AP, however, said Moore's comment wasn't "off the cuff" at all.

"Our reporter spoke to him at length," AP spokesman Paul Colford said. "She asked him about that statement twice. After the story appeared, Mr. Moore told associates he was making a joke. Our staffer did not report that the bill would go so far as to outlaw yoga pants. Or that he intended to. We stand by our coverage."

Determined Homeless Woman


A homeless woman who was raped while sleeping under a bridge last year sometimes begged for bus money or walked up to 8 miles over the past year so she could face her attacker in court.

Her determination to be in court helped win a conviction against the man, said a police officer who investigated the case.

Paul Hubert, 54, pleaded guilty to rape before the case went to trial and was sentenced Feb. 10 to three years in prison.

The 47-year-old woman said she made it to about a half-dozen court hearings by getting bus passes from prosecutors or panhandling for bus fare. At least twice, she walked to courthouse - a journey that took about three hours, she said.




In Memory

Lesley Gore

Singer-songwriter Lesley Gore, who topped the charts in 1963 at age 16 with her epic song of teenage angst, "It's My Party," and followed it up with the hits "Judy's Turn to Cry," and the feminist anthem "You Don't Own Me," died Monday. She was 68.

Gore died of lung cancer at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, according to her partner of 33 years, Lois Sasson.

Brooklyn-born and New Jersey-raised, Gore was discovered by Quincy Jones as a teenager and signed to Mercury Records. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College with a degree in English/American literature.

Gore's other hits include "She's A Fool," ''Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows," ''That's the Way Boys Are" and "Maybe I Know." She co-wrote with her brother, Michael, the Academy Award-nominated "Out Here On My Own" from the film "Fame."

She sang at the 1964 T.A.M.I. Show in Santa Monica, California, alongside future Rock and Roll Hall of Famers like the James Brown and the Rolling Stones. Gore also played Catwoman's sidekick in the cult TV comedy "Batman."

In the 1990s, Gore co-wrote "My Secret Love" for Allison Anders' film "Grace of My Heart," released in 1996. A couple of years later, she appeared in "Smokey Joe's Cafe" on Broadway. Gore had been working on a stage version of her life with playwright Mark Hampton when she died.

In 2005, she released "Ever Since," her first album in 30 years, but was sure to revisit older hits in front of fans. "If I've learned anything in this business," she told The New York Times that year, "how stupid would it be not to do 'It's My Party' when people come to hear it?"

She officially came out to the public when she hosted several episodes of the PBS series, "In The Life," which dealt with gay and lesbian issues.

During the 2012 presidential campaign, Gore turned "You Don't Own Me" into an online video public service announcement demanding reproductive rights which starred Lena Dunham and Tavi Gevinson, among others

In the last few years, she performed at Feinstein's at the Loews Regency in New York and, along with Ronnie Spector and LaLa Brooks, headlined the "She's Got the Power" concert outdoors at Lincoln Center in 2012.

In addition to Sasson, Gore is survived by her brother and mother, Ronny. Services will be held on Thursday at the Frank E. Campbell funeral home on Madison Avenue.
