Trivia Question from Yesterday

A quisling is a person who collaborates with an enemy occupying force. What country provided this synonym for traitor?

       Norway                                                      Source

A quisling, in Norwegian, other Scandinavian languages, and English, is a person who collaborates with an enemy occupying force. The word originates from the Norwegian war-time leader Vidkun Quisling, who headed a domestic Nazi collaborationist regime during the Second World War.        Source

Has Brilliantly Trolled T-rump For Decades

'Sesame Street'

It's always a sunny day when Sesame Street is trolling President Donald Trump (R-Fabulist). And though you might not realize it, the classic children's show has been poking fun at the business man turned leader of the U.S. for yearssss.

Way before Donald Trump was president, Sesame Street was there, trolling him long before any of us knew what we were in for. The show was ahead of its time, creating parody-inspired characters like Ronald Grump and Donald Grump as early as the 1980s.

While the nonprofit show is careful not to get too political with its programming, over the years Sesame Street has delivered some epic burns to Donald Trump, and in light of his recent plans to cut PBS funding - a network that re-airs Sesame Street episodes even though the show moved to HBO - we thought it would be a perfect time to revisit them. Though Sesame Street receives no direct funding from PBS, the show released a statement explaining that "PBS makes Sesame Street available to all Americans, and thereby continues to play a major role in helping less privileged kids gain access to preschool education that has proven and enduring value."

So now, in all their glory, we present to you the best Sesame Street Trump burns.

Back in 1988 the Muppets were already on top of their Trump trolling game, as children tuned in to watch a conniving Ronald Grump build his iconic Grump Tower.

Already Marked By Climate Extremes


Extreme weather and climate conditions, including Arctic "heatwaves", are continuing this year, after 2016 topped the global temperature charts and saw shrinking sea ice and surging sea levels.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) warned Tuesday that the drastic shifts seen in the global climate system that resulted in a range of alarming records last year appear to be continuing unabated.

"We are now in truly unchartered territory," David Carlson, head of the World Climate Research Programme, said in a release from the WMO.

He said that even without a strong El Nino -- a phenomenon that brings generally warmer temperatures every four to five years -- 2017 was "seeing other remarkable changes across the planet that are challenging our understanding of the climate system."

The warning came as the WMO published on Tuesday its annual report on the state of the global climate, confirming previously released figures showing that 2016 was the warmest year on record.

Says Disney Copied His 'Zootopia'

Gary L. Goldman

A screenwriter and producer sued Walt Disney Pictures on Tuesday claiming the studio copied his ideas to create the Oscar-winning animated film "Zootopia."

Gary L. Goldman, whose credits include work on film adaptations of "Total Recall," ''Minority Report" and "Big Trouble in Little China," filed the copyright infringement lawsuit Tuesday in a federal court in Los Angeles. His lawsuit states he pitched his "Zootopia" concept to Disney in 2000 and 2009 and there are substantial similarities between his project and last year's animated blockbuster.

Disney rejected the lawsuit's claims in a statement. "Mr. Goldman's lawsuit is riddled with patently false allegations. It is an unprincipled attempt to lay claim to a successful film he didn't create, and we will vigorously defend against it in court."

The lawsuit states Goldman pitched Disney his "Zootopia" concept as a way to explore life in America through a civilized society of animals. Disney's "Zootopia" explores prejudice through a bunny's quest to become a respected police officer in a city where predator and prey co-exist side-by-side. The film won the best animated feature at last month's Academy Awards.

Saws Off Rhino Horns To Keep Animals Safe

Dvur Kralove Zoo

A Czech zoo is taking no chances after the recent killing of a rhinoceros at a wildlife park near Paris by assailants who stole the animal's horn - the zoo has started to remove the horns from its 21 rhinos as a precaution.

With rhino horns considered a cure in Asia for everything from cancer, colds and fevers to high blood pressure, hangovers, impotence and other ailments, poachers have decimated rhino populations in Africa and elsewhere.

The attack at the Thoiry Zoo earlier this month was a warning sign for zookeepers around the globe that poaching could be spreading beyond the killing fields of Africa and Asia.

The Dvur Kralove Zoo, 110 kilometers (70 miles) northeast of Prague, has four southern white rhinos and 17 black ones, the largest group of its kind in Europe. Director Premysl Rabas said Tuesday that it was a tough decision to saw off the horns.

"However, the risk that the rhinos currently face not only in the wild but even in zoos is too high. The safety of the animals is our first concern," he said. "A dehorned rhino is definitely a better option than a dead rhino."

investigating Breitbart And Infowars


The FBI is reportedly set to investigate right-wing news websites like Breitbart over allegations that they worked with Russian-backed operatives to disseminate stories favouring President Donald Trump (R-Grifter).

Investigators are looking into whether agents used online "bots" to disseminate both real and fake news stories which supported the billionaire businessman across social media, at times when his campaign appeared to be struggling.

Sources told US publisher, McClatchy that these strategically timed computer commands created millions of social media posts linking to articles on far-right websites including Breitbart News, InfoWars and the Kremlin-backed RT News and Sputnik News.

Some of the articles that were posted were completely false, while other contained a mixture of fact and fiction.

But McClatchy reported that investigators are now trying to establish whether the websites were complicit with the people managing the bots or the operatives were managing them without their knowledge - which is entirely possible.

Mexican Newspaper Slams

American Spring Breakers

A Mexican newspaper has hit out at the "unacceptable, racist" American tourists who allegedly began chanting "Build that wall!" while on a cruise in Cancun.

The refrain, adopted by Donald Trump (R-Crooked) supporters after he promised to construct a barrier between the United States and its southern neighbour, was sung by young spring breakers, according to The Yucatan Times.

Quoting a honeymooning couple who posted the ordeal on Facebook, the editorial says an occasion that should have "been a dream night" became "a bitter experience".

Anaximandro Amable, from Perú, posted on Facebook: "Today I was with Suly, my wife (who is a native of Mexico), watching an entertainment show off the coast of Cancun aboard a boat, and at the end of the show, a flock of Americans (maybe under the influence of alcohol, or maybe not), began to sing the infamous "Build that wall" chant louder and louder".

The newspaper said: "This is just one of the many blameworthy behaviours that young spring breakers have shown recently in Cancun and that are described as acts of xenophobia and discrimination against Mexicans within their own country, which is (or should be) totally unacceptable."

Immigrants Rushing To Remove Tattoos


Immigrants are queuing up to get their tattoos removed out of fear that they may be identified because of them and deported out of the country as a result, according to a California-based tattoo removal clinic.

The clinic told local reporters that recently the number of customers visiting them has doubled. Although typically, the stated reason for the removal of a tattoo is to remove the name of a former lover, or to appear more presentable for job interviews, the latest rush has been attributed to fear of deportations under President Donald Trump's latest policies.

The tattoo clinic reportedly said that members of the Latino community fear that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents could profile them and check their immigration status.

"A lot of people don't want to be a moving target or even seen as a target…And for fear that they might be seen as a certain type of person or judged in any way, people want to get their tattoos removed," Nora Ruiz of the San Pablo Economic Development Corporation said, according to KPIX.

Fushing Out Toilet Paper Crooks


A years-long crime spree by Chinese toilet paper thieves may have reached the end of its roll after park officials in southern Beijing installed facial recognition technology to flush out bathroom bandits.

Park managers at the Temple of Heaven, an expanse of imperial landmarks in the capital, spent three years testing ways to foil the toilet looters, including fingerprinting and laser sensors, before they settled on the new technology, which was introduced over the weekend.

Elderly square dancers taking their bathroom breaks on Tuesday were greeted by a robotic voice: "Welcome! Please stand in the recognition zone".

One by one, they obediently positioned themselves on a yellow square marking and watched their faces pop up on a blinking blue screen mounted to the wall. Then the machine dispensed their individual allotment of 60 cm (23 inches) of toilet paper.

If the same individual attempts to collect more bathroom tissue within nine minutes, he or she will be met with a polite rejection: "Please try again later."

In Memory


Tourists used to toss coins at a green sea turtle that lived in a pond in eastern Thailand, wishing for luck and longevity. But swallowing the shiny tidbits turned out to be a death sentence for the reptile.

After having nearly a thousand coins removed from its stomach in a four-hour operation two weeks ago, the turtle - nicknamed "Omsin," or "Piggy Bank," - died Tuesday.

Omsin, estimated to be 25 years old, had been rescued by Thai navy personnel who saw her visibly ailing in the seaside town of Sattahip. She was then examined by a veterinarian, who found the coins inside her stomach.

The story attracted international media attention, and a public clamor to ease Omsin's plight ensued. The weight of the money inside her had cracked her underside shell and threatened a fatal infection.

The cause of death was intestinal obstruction that blocked Omsin's protein intake, while nickel toxicity from the coins damaged her immune system, said Dr. Roongroje Thanawongnuwech, dean of the veterinary school at Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University.

The turtle had appeared to be doing well after the operation, but a checkup Saturday revealed problems with her intestines. Doctors performed a second, 2 1/2 hour-operation, but Omsin never woke up and died Tuesday morning.
