"Oilfield Dodge" Promotional Film 1920s Dodge Brothers Wild Ride (YouTube)
1920s vintage Dodge Brothers sedan drives down muddy roads and across muddy fields to get to the gushing oil well. For some strange reason the car has "Oil Field Dodge" painted on the side. This may be a company promotional video but it does not make driving look like any fun. The music is a stock YouTube number by Dave Hartley called New Walk.

P. Chung: 5 True Stories That Will Restore Your Faith In Famous People (Cracked)
If you were to ask us to provide a breakdown of the time the general public spends consuming celebrity news, we'd have to say it's something along the lines of 50 percent reading about all the horrible things that stars do, and 50 percent searching for pictures of them naked. But as
we've mentioned before, we really should set aside at least a percent or two of that time to bask in all the wondrously selfless things that some celebrities do for their fellow man, such as ...

Mr. Barbara Streisand, James Brolin, a wooden and stilted executor of other hack's written lines, is today's trivial answer. His portrayal of Ronnie the Great is tantamount to the acuity of the great one's own acting abilities, which were as nil as can be.

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

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

The combination of global warming and shifting population means that by mid-century, there will be a huge increase in the number of Americans sweating through days that are extremely hot, a new study says.
People are migrating into areas - especially in the South - where the heat is likely to increase more, said the authors of a study published Monday by the journal Nature Climate Change. The study highlighted the Houston-Dallas-San Antonio and Atlanta-Charlotte-Raleigh corridors as the places where the double whammy looks to be the biggest.
In a unique study looking at the interplay of projected changes in climate and population, scientists tried to characterize the number of people who will feel temperatures of 95 degrees or higher and how often they will feel it. They used a figure called person days for the extreme heat to reflect both the length of time heat waves continued and how many people felt it by multiplying people affected by how many days they felt the heat.
Between 1970 and 2000, the U.S. averaged about 2.3 billion person days of extreme heat each year. But between 2040 and 2070 that number will be between 10 and 14 billion person days a year, according to the study.

Republican Jeb Bush (R-'The Smart One') said in a weekend radio interview that he does not believe the U.S. Constitution grants a right to gay marriage, moving away from his previous urging of "respect" for all Americans on the gay and lesbian marriage issue.
The U.S. Supreme Court is expected by the end of June to make a landmark ruling that could make gay marriage the law of the land or return the decision to individual states.
"It's at the core of the Catholic faith and to imagine how we are going to succeed in our country unless we have committed family life, (a) committed child-centered family system, is hard to imagine," Bush told the conservative Christian Broadcasting Network show, The Brody File, in an interview broadcast on Sunday.
"So, irrespective of the Supreme Court ruling because they are going to decide whatever they decide - I don't know what they are going to do - we need to be stalwart supporters of traditional marriage," said Bush, who converted to Catholicism 20 years ago.
Federal water managers released a report Monday projecting that Lake Mead's water levels will fall below a point in January 2017 that would force supply cuts to Arizona and Nevada.
The effects could be serious. Arizona's allocation of Colorado River water could be cut 11.4 percent, or by an amount normally used by more than 600,000 homes. Nevada's share could be reduced 4.3 percent. Think 26,000 homes.
But officials heading water agencies in the two states and California took a wait-and-see approach to the projections posted by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.
They pointed to fluctuations in precipitation levels just since January. They added that more will be known in August when the bureau knows how much runoff in the upper-basin states of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming reaches the Lake Powell reservoir.
The so-called interim guidelines issued Monday by the Bureau of Reclamation predict water levels will be just 2 feet above a key trigger point next January on Lake Mead, the reservoir behind Hoover Dam.

A group of supporters of Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday presented a bust of the strongman depicting him in the heroic guise of a Roman emperor.
"We wanted to immortalise Vladimir Putin as a conqueror and statesman who returned Crimea to Russia," said Andrei Polyakov, the head of a group of Cossacks outside the northwestern city of Saint Petersburg.
Cossacks trace their origins back to horsemen who guarded Tsarist Russia's borders and are fiercely loyal to the Kremlin.
The imitation-bronze bust measuring about 50 centimetres in which Putin is depicted in a breastplate and flowing toga was created by sculptor Pavel Greshnikov using an artificial resin.
Media mogul Ted Turner set out years ago to establish a fund to bolster the dwindling populations of everything from falcons and frogs to Mexican gray wolves, using the nearly 2 million acres he owns in a dozen western states as home base for the projects.
Now, one of his New Mexico ranches is caught in a dispute between the state and federal wildlife officials over the management of the endangered wolves.
New Mexico wildlife officials recently denied the Ladder Ranch's bid to renew its permit for holding wolves in captivity as part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's wolf reintroduction program.
That triggered calls for Gov. Susana Martinez to reverse the decision, but ranchers are standing behind the governor. Rallies are planned Tuesday at the capitol.
Under the Martinez administration, the state Game and Fish Department pulled out of the wolf-reintroduction program in 2011 and voted to end a trapping ban in wolf territory.
A San Diego-area moving and storage company has agreed to pay $170,000 to active duty members of the U.S. Navy whose belongings were auctioned off while they were deployed overseas, the Department of Justice said on Monday.
Across Town Movers, its parent company, Horoy Inc, and owner Daniel Homan settled a lawsuit filed in March that accused them of illegally selling off the belongings of 10 Navy service members who the company knew were deployed.
The firm used storage liens to justify the auctions, while the service members deployed overseas were unable to respond to local legal processes.
The settlement includes $150,000 to a single Navy sailor whose collection of vintage and rare car parts was sold off while the company billed the Navy to continue storing them, according to the Justice Department.

The liquid is dark red, a mixture of fat and blood, and Dr. Mark Berman pumps it out of the patient's backside. He treats it with a chemical, runs it through a processor - and injects it into the woman's aching knees and elbows.
The "soup," he says, is rich in shape-shifting stem cells - magic bullets that, according to some doctors, can be used to treat everything from Parkinson's disease to asthma to this patient's chronic osteoarthritis.
It's quackery, critics say. But it's also a mushrooming business - and almost wholly unregulated.
The number of stem-cell clinics across the United States has surged from a handful in 2010 to more than 170 today, according to figures compiled by The Associated Press. Many of the clinics are linked in large, for-profit chains. New businesses continue to open; doctors looking to get into the field need only take a weekend seminar offered by a training company.
Berman, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, is co-founder of the largest chain, the Cell Surgical Network. Like most doctors in the field, he has no formal background in stem cell research. His company offers stem cell procedures for more than 30 diseases and conditions, including Lou Gehrig's disease, multiple sclerosis, lupus and erectile dysfunction.

Under scrutiny for using private email and cellphones for official communications, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R-Failure) said Monday that he has engaged in the practice since he was a U.S. senator.
The Wichita Eagle reported Saturday that the Republican governor has used private emails for official business, raising concerns because documents related to them aren't accessible under the Kansas Open Records Act. Budget Director Shawn Sullivan also used a private email account at least twice in December to circulate details about spending proposals.
Brownback said Monday that he began conducting some business through private email or cellphones while serving in the U.S. Senate from 1996 through 2010 due to situations where it was unclear whether the communication was personal or official.
Attorney General Derek Schmidt, a Republican, issued an opinion recently saying that the state's open records law does not cover private emails from public officials, but he recommended that lawmakers fix that loophole.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R-Glutton) offered a vigorous defense of post-Sept. 11 surveillance tactics on Monday, backing existing programs and calling for an expansion of intelligence-gathering capabilities even as Congress seeks ways to rein in the programs.
Christie, who spent seven years as the U.S. attorney in New Jersey before he was elected governor, said that he had used provisions of the Patriot Act in pursuing terrorists after the Sept. 11 attacks and argued that the country must not weaken its anti-terror and surveillance laws.
"We need to toughen our anti-terror and surveillance laws to give our services the legal mechanisms to do their job," he said in a foreign policy-themed speech.
The likely Republican GOP presidential candidate took specific aim at former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who in 2013 leaked thousands of documents to journalists. Among Snowden's revelations: NSA had for years been secretly collecting data about millions of Americans' landline phone calls.
