Trivia Question from Yesterday

The Channel Islands are located near the coast of Normandy, France. What is the largest of the Channel Islands?

       Jersey                                                      Source

Jersey, officially the Bailiwick of Jersey (French: Bailliage de Jersey; Jèrriais: Bailliage dé Jèrri), is a Crown dependency located near the coast of Normandy, France. Jersey was part of the Duchy of Normandy, whose dukes went on to become kings of England from 1066. After Normandy was lost by the kings of England in the 13th century, and the ducal title surrendered to France, Jersey and the other Channel Islands remained attached to the English crown.

The bailiwick consists of the island of Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands, along with surrounding uninhabited islands and rocks collectively named Les Dirouilles, Les Écréhous, Les Minquiers, Les Pierres de Lecq, and other reefs. Although the bailiwicks of Jersey and Guernsey are often referred to collectively as the Channel Islands, the "Channel Islands" are not a constitutional or political unit. Jersey has a separate relationship to the Crown from the other Crown dependencies of Guernsey and the Isle of Man, although all are held by the monarch of the United Kingdom.

Jersey is a self-governing parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarchy, with its own financial, legal and judicial systems, and the power of self-determination. The Lieutenant Governor on the island is the personal representative of the Queen.

Jersey is not part of the United Kingdom, and has an international identity separate from that of the UK, but the UK is constitutionally responsible for the defence of Jersey.        Source

Re: Martin Sheen

In 2010 The Way came out. It's a touching, funny, and moving movie staring Sheen and (briefly) Emilio Estevez, his son who is also one of the writers of the screenplay. I recommend it. The IMDB plot summary:

"The Way" is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James. Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his "California Bubble Life". Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey. On his journey, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt), who is suffering from a bout of writer's block. From the unexpected and, often times, amusing experiences along the way, this unlikely quartet of misfits creates an everlasting bond and Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again. Through Tom's unresolved relationship with his son, he discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose".

Marc's Guide to Curing Cancer

So far so good on beating cancer for now. I'm doing fine. At the end of the month I'll be 16 months into an 8 month mean lifespan. And yesterday I went on a 7 mile hike and managed to keep up with the hiking group I was with. So, doing something right.

Still waiting for future test results and should see things headed in the right direction. I can say that it's not likely that anything dire happens in the short term so that means that I should have time to make several more attempts at this. So even if it doesn't work the first time there are a lot of variations to try. So if there's bad news it will help me pick the next radiation target.

I have written a "how to" guide for oncologists to perform the treatment that I got. I'm convinced that I'm definitely onto something and whether it works for me or not isn't the definitive test. I know if other people tried this that it would work for some of them, and if they improve it that it will work for a lot of them.

The guide is quite detailed and any doctor reading this can understand the procedure at every level. I also go into detail as to how it works, how I figured it out, and variations and improvements that could be tried to enhance it. I also introduce new ways to look at the problem. There is a lot of room for improvement and I think that doctors reading it will see what I'm talking about and want to build on it. And it's written so that if you're not a doctor you can still follow it. It also has a personal story revealing that I'm the class clown of cancer support group. I give great interviews and I look pretty hot in a lab coat.

So, feel free to read this and see what I'm talking about. But if any of you want to help then pass this around to both doctors and cancer patients. I need some media coverage. I'm looking for as many eyeballs as possible to read these ideas. Even if this isn't the solution, it's definitely on the right track. After all, I did hike 7 miles yesterday. And this hiking group wasn't moving slow. So if this isn't working then, why am I still here?

I also see curing cancer as more of an engineering problem that a medical problem. So if you are good at solving problems and most of what you know about medicine was watching the Dr. House MD TV show, then you're at the level I was at when I started. So anyone can jump in and be part of the solution.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


Governor Signs Gun Law


A bill prohibiting domestic abusers and people under restraining orders from owning firearms became America's first new gun control law since the Feb. 14 Florida high school massacre.

"Well done Oregon," Democratic Gov. Kate Brown exclaimed Monday after signing the law on the steps of the state Capitol as some 200 people, including victims of domestic abuse and high school students, applauded and cheered.

State Sen. Floyd Prozanski, whose sister was fatally shot by her boyfriend, and Rep. Janeen Sollman, who fled her home as a child when her father was in a violent rage, hugged as they stood behind the governor.

The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people has created a wave of young anti-gun activists that has now reached cross-country into Oregon. Students from a high school in the Portland suburb of Lake Oswego traveled 40 miles (65 kilometers) to stage a gun-control rally in the state capital, Salem, Monday morning.

"We are empowered youth," they chanted, while holding signs that read "End gun violence, our lives matter," and "Together we can end gun violence."




Want Your Name

NASA and Captain Kirk

Don't worry. Your good name won't burn up on arrival at the sun.

NASA's Parker Solar Probe has a 4.5-inch-thick (11.4-centimeter) carbon-composite shield to protect it from the sun's blazing atmosphere when it reaches its destination. The probe is scheduled to launch this summer.

Actor William Shatner, famous for his role as Captain Kirk on "Star Trek," has teamed up with NASA to promote the solar mission and encourage people around the world to follow the probe on its unprecedented journey to the sun.

The probe will carry a microchip full of the names of anybody who wants to sign up to send a moniker along for the exciting ride. NASA is calling it a "Hot Ticket" and will accept name submissions at the Parker Solar Probe site until April 27.

Newly Defined Words

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

When "disaster" isn't enough, "dumpster fire" might ignite a better description of life's catastrophes.

The informal noun is one of 850 new words and definitions recently added to

An example listed in the new entry shows how to use the term in a sentence: "So while 2017 has been, by many measures, a complete dumpster fire of a year, New Yorkers can at the very least take refuge in the fact that their city is becoming an even safer place to live. -Clayton Guse"

Other new additions: Glamping (glamorous + camping), dark chocolate (which has more cocoa than milk chocolate), case-sensitive (darn those password requirements), life hack and hate-watch (because sometimes it's hard to look away). Cryptocurrencywas also updated to reflect the digital currency made popular by bitcoin hitting mainstream in 2014.

The dictionary followed Oxford English Dictionary's lead in adding mansplain, defined as explaining something to a woman in a condescending way.

'James Bond' Volcano


A Japanese volcano which featured in a 1960s James Bond movie shot smoke and ash thousands of meters into the sky on Tuesday, prompting the cancellation of flights to and from a nearby airport, with the eruption likely to continue for some time.

Shinmoedake, in a largely rural area some 985 km (616 miles) from Tokyo on Japan's southernmost main island of Kyushu, had been erupting on a smaller scale since March 1, when entrance to the 1,421 meter-high peak was restricted.

Television footage showed smoke and ash billowing high into the sky, with lava visible deep inside a crater at the mountain, which featured in the 1967 James Bond movie "You Only Live Twice". NHK public television said the smoke and ash had risen as far as 3,650 meters in the peak's strongest eruption in seven years.

"The mountain has been erupting for a while, but this is the strongest day yet," said an official at the Japanese Meteorological Agency. "This will go on for a while."

Japan has 110 active volcanoes and monitors 47 of them around the clock. In September 2014, 63 people were killed on Mount Ontake, the worst volcanic toll in Japan for nearly 90 years.



Digby's Hullabaloo


Sounds Off


Former resident George W. Bush is reportedly pleased by at least one element of the Donald Trump (R-Crooked) presidency: It's making him look better.

While Bush doesn't often address Trump or his policies directly, he does have a zinger he likes to deliver when the issue comes up. Tom DeFrank, a contributing editor for The National Journal, reported:

"Without chiming in with the Trump critics, Bush is often heard to remark, unable to stifle his trademark smirk: 'Sorta makes me look pretty good, doesn't it?'"

The relationship between Trump and the Bush family hasn't been a warm one. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bushwas widely considered the frontrunner for the 2016 GOP nomination until he was steamrolled by Trump, who famously dismissed him as "low energy."

Neither Jeb nor George - nor their father, former President George H.W. Bush - attended the 2016 Republican National Convention, in which Trump was nominated. None of the three Bushes voted for Trump either.




"Hush Agreement"

Stormy Daniels

Stephanie Clifford, the adult film performer known as "Stormy Daniels" who received $130,000 from Donald Trump's personal attorney just days before the 2016 election, filed suit in California on Tuesday asking a court to throw out a non-disclosure agreement preventing her from discussing an alleged affair with Mr. Trump.

In the court filing, Clifford claims that she began an "intimate relationship" with Mr. Trump in 2006 that ended the next year. In October 2016, she accepted $130,000 from Mr. Trump's longtime attorney Michael Cohen in exchange for her silence about the alleged relationship, according to the filing.

Cohen acknowledged the payment in a statement in February but claimed that neither the Trump campaign nor the Trump Organization "was a party to the transaction." He did not immediately reply to a request for comment about the lawsuit Tuesday evening.

Clifford asked the court on Tuesday to nullify the agreement, claiming Mr. Trump never signed the document.

The court filing includes a "hush agreement" purporting to be the NDA, which has not previously been made public. The agreement is between "Peggy Peterson" and "David Dennison." In a letter attached to the document, "Peterson" is identified as a pseudonym for Clifford, while the true identity of "Dennison" is redacted. Clifford's attorney writes in Tuesday's filing that "Dennison" was the name used by Mr. Trump and names him as a defendant.

Contracts, Moonlighting


U.S. Senate Democrats on Tuesday pressed Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to explain how an agency contract was awarded last year to the business associate of a member of his personal security detail.

In a letter to Pruitt, Democrats on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee raised concerns that the security detail member, Pasquale Perrotta, may have exercised improper influence in the awarding of the contract.

Perrotta is also a principal at Sequoia Security Group. His business partner received a contract from the EPA last year to sweep Pruitt's office for listening devices, the Associated Press reported in December.

"These facts raise questions about Mr. Perrotta's compliance with EPA regulations and concerns that he may have used his position at the agency to influence the award of EPA contracts to a person or company in which he has a financial interest," Democratic Senators Tom Carper and Sheldon Whitehouse wrote.

The letter was sent a day after Democrats on the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee turned up the heat on Pruitt over political appointees at the agency who had received special permission to work for outside clients.




African 'Anomaly'

Magnetic Poles

It's a moment which doomsday fans are obsessed with - when Earth's magnetic poles flips from north to south, bringing chaos to our wired world.

Compasses would point north, instead of south, due to changes in the magnetic field inside our planet - and it could affect the power grid, too, experts have warned.

Now clay remnants burnt by Iron Age people in Africa could offer a clue about whether it's about to happen.

Nearly 800,000 years ago, the poles were switched: north pointed south and vice versa. The poles have never completely reversed since, but for the past 160 years, the strength of the magnetic field has been decreasing at an alarming rate.

The region where it is weakest, and continuing to weaken, is a large area stretching from Chile to Zimbabwe called the South Atlantic Anomaly.
