So, I'll keep this brief, & just say that the Crumplstock 3 festival is January 22, 23, 24 in about a week. You can stream the entire live festival from here
( crumplebangers.com/crumplstock/ )

















If you need a taster, here's downloads for some previous Crumplstock sets

Trivia Question from Yesterday


Food in tin cans date back to at least 1772. When was the first can opener patented?


       1855 (England), 1858 (US)                                                      Source


A can opener (in North American English and Australian English) or tin opener (in British and Commonwealth English) is a device used to open tin cans (metal cans). Although preservation of food using tin cans had been practiced since at least 1772 in the Netherlands, the first can openers were not patented until 1855 in England and 1858 in the United States.        Source






Alan J was first and correct with:
   1855 in England and 1858 in the United States.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, wrote:

Still Cruddy Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali responded:
   The first can openers were not patented until 1855 in England and 1858 in the United States.





Lois Of The Lunchables replied:
   So they started storing food in tin cans in 1772. Someone invented the can opener in 1858? This means that someone's cat was meowing incessantly for EIGHTY SIX YEARS waiting for tuna! Of course in Russia, can open you! Especially using THIS technique!





MAM   wrote:
   January 5, 1858, Waterbury, Conn., native Ezra J. Warner invented the first US can opener. It consisted of a sharp sickle, which was pushed into the can and sawed around its edge.

Joe S Stony Lonesome     said:
   On January 5, 1858, Waterbury native Ezra J. Warner invented the first US can opener. The idea of storing food in cans dates back almost 50 years earlier when Peter Durand of England patented a can made of wrought iron with a tin lining.
  Can openers have a warm place in my heart. I still have my GI can opener, saved my life many times. Without it I could have starved.

Rumors Ripple

Gravitational Waves

Rumors are rippling through the science world that physicists may have detected gravitational waves, a key element of Einstein's theory which if confirmed would be one of the biggest discoveries of our time.

There has been no announcement, no peer review or publication of the findings -- all typically important steps in the process of releasing reliable and verifiable scientific research.

Instead, a message on Twitter from an Arizona State University cosmologist, Lawrence Krauss, has sparked a firestorm of speculation and excitement.

Krauss does not work with the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory, or LIGO, which is searching for ripples in the fabric of space and time.

But he tweeted on Monday about the apparent shoring up of rumor he'd heard some months ago, that LIGO scientists were writing up a paper on gravitational waves they had discovered using US-based detectors.

TV Stations Face Deadline

FCC Airwaves Auction

Tuesday is the deadline for TV stations across the country to inform the FCC whether they plan to participate in a landmark auction of broadcast spectrum, which could mean a number of outlets going out of business and others sharing their airwaves.

The long-in-the-works auction has drawn interest from major station groups such as CBS, Media General and Sinclair Broadcast Group, as they may reap huge sums from giving up some of their spectrum and sharing in the proceeds with the federal government. The auction is taking place to address increasing demand for spectrum for wireless use.

Exactly which stations are applying to participate in the voluntary auction is being kept confidential. But some public television entities have made their plans public, such as those overseen by public colleges.

After congressional authorization in 2012, the FCC went to work designing the complex auction. It consists of two parts - a "reverse" auction to determine what price the station can get for its spectrum, and a "forward" auction to determine what prices companies are willing to pay to obtain wireless licenses. The auction is scheduled to start on March 29.

New Nonprofit

Philadelphia

The owner of Philadelphia's two largest newspapers and their joint website, philly.com, has handed them off to a nonprofit created to help them survive the digital age with help from foundation grants, university partnerships and other boosters.

Local philanthropist H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest, who bought the media company 19 months ago, will give the struggling properties to the new Institute for Journalism in New Media and donate $20 million to endow the enterprise.

Lenfest pledged the newsroom would continue to produce "independent public service journalism and investigative reporting that positively impacts the community, while also creating innovative multimedia content."

The broadsheet Inquirer has won 20 Pulitzer Prizes for excellence in journalism, and the tabloid Daily News has garnered an additional three. Recent awards include the Inquirer's 2014 prize for criticism and 2012 Public Service award and the Daily News' 2010 prize for investigative journalism.

Readers will not see any immediate changes, and the company's contracts with its labor unions will remain in force, Lenfest said.

To Open In June

Shanghai Disney

Disney's theme park in Shanghai, its first in mainland China, will open on June 16, the company announced Tuesday.

The park, originally slated to open last year, will feature everything from an Enchanted Storybook Castle -- the tallest in any Disney park -- to a "Toy Story"-themed hotel and a Grand Theater with a Chinese-language production of the Broadway hit "The Lion King."

But Walt Disney Co. also says the park will reflect China's own culture -- something Chinese officials sought to ensure before permitting the icon of US entertainment to enter the country.

Disney's first mainland China park -- there is already one in Hong Kong, which opened in 2005 -- will open in the skyscraper-dominated Pudong district of Shanghai with a multi-day event.

Sentenced To Jail

'Alaskan Bush People'

A judge has sentenced two members of the family featured on the reality TV show Alaskan Bush People to 30 days in jail after they were accused of applying for checks from Alaska's oil wealth fund even though they weren't entitled.

Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg imposed the sentence Monday for 63-year-old Billy Brown and one of Brown's sons, Joshua.

Both pleaded guilty to unsworn falsification. Their sentences also include restitution, community service and probation, and neither will be eligible for future Alaska Permanent Fund dividends.

Billy Brown's attorney, James McGowan, asked the judge to take Brown's health into account, saying Brown suffers from a seizure disorder, among other things. He said there was no need to incarcerate Brown, but the judge wasn't swayed.

Under $30 A Barrel

Oil

US crude prices fell below $30 a barrel for the first time in 12 years on Tuesday as OPEC member Nigeria called for an emergency meeting to address collapsing prices.

New York's benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for February delivery fell to $29.93 a barrel, a level last seen in December 2003.

Prices pulled back slightly at the end of trade to end 97 cents lower at $30.44 a barrel.

In London prices plunged as well, with the benchmark Brent North Sea crude for February ending down 69 cents at $30.86 a barrel.

The continued plunge in prices, with some analysts now seeing a $20 price in sight, spurred more turmoil in exporters, many feeling a deep squeeze on revenues from the collapse of the market.

Bundy Bunch Destroys Park Fences

Oregon

A small group of armed activists seditionists who have occupied a remote wildlife refuge in Oregon ratcheted things up another notch Monday by destroying fencing surrounding the federal property.

The treasonous group, which took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge ten days ago, used pliers and an excavator found on site to tear down barbed-wire fencing that marks the edge of the park.

Ammon Bundy (R-White Privlege), who has led the revolt tantrum, said that the protesters hooligans acted at the request of a rancher who wanted to graze his 600 cattle on coveted the federal property, but was prevented from doing so when the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) installed the fence last year by law.

According to television network ABC, the protesters have also accessed documents left behind by federal employees.

Massive Die-Off Of Seabirds

Alaska

Seabird biologist David Irons drove recently to the Prince William Sound community of Whittier to check on a friend's boat and spotted white blobs along the tide line of the rocky Alaska beach. He thought they were patches of snow.

A closer look revealed that the white patches were emaciated common murres, one of North America's most abundant seabirds, washed ashore after apparently starving to death.

"It was pretty horrifying," Irons said. "The live ones standing along the dead ones were even worse."

Murre die-offs have occurred in previous winters but not in the numbers Alaska is seeing. Federal researchers won't estimate the number, and are trying to gauge the scope and cause of the die-off while acknowledging there's little they can do.

Scientists say the die-offs could be a sign of ecosystem changes that have reduced the numbers of the forage fish that murres depend upon. Warmer water surface temperatures, possibly due to global warming or the El Nino weather pattern, may have affected murre prey, including herring, capelin and juvenile pollock.
