The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“It was chaos. I was just treading water; things just didn’t feel good. There were so many students, and so much going on, that it was impossible for me to reach them.” Quamiir Trice


Quote II

“One of the consequences of such notions as ‘entitlements’ is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.” Thomas Sowell

Quote III

“No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems – of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.”Thomas Sowell

As a tiger cannot change its stripes. A Communist cannot change its true color. Who other than Communists would kill people in a church.The biggest bias in "news" is what gets reported and what doesn't. The "Left" loves Daniel Ortega. Now if this was some "Right wing strongman" we wouldn't hear the end about this massacre.

So much for the GAINZZ. Man cannot live by meat alone.

Archaeologists have uncovered the earliest evidence of bread-making at a site in northeastern Jordan. Dating back some 14,400 years, the discovery shows that ancient hunter-gatherers were making and eating bread 4,000 years before the Neolithic era and the introduction of agriculture. So much for the “Paleo Diet” actually being a thing.

Bread-making predates agriculture, according to a new study published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. That’s quite the revelation, given the conventional thinking that bread only appeared after the advent of farming. The discovery means that ancient hunter-gatherers were using the wild ancestors of domesticated cereals, such as wild einkorn and club-rush tubers, to make flatbread-like food products. What’s more, the new paper shows that bread had already become an established food staple prior to the Neolithic period and the Agricultural Revolution.

Living in a state with over 10,000 lakes I have always heard keep your pets and small children away from algae. And this is the reason why: A deadly algae bloom has broken out in Florida.

There is a real mess going on in Southern Florida. Lake Okeechobee, which is the second largest body of fresh water in the US, as well as other waterways, are being overrun by a massive bloom of blue-green algae. This bloom is threatening both tourism and health. The science here is very interesting because blue-green algae, are not algae; they are bacteria, capable of serving up some of the world's most toxic chemicals.

Although cyanobacteria, which can fix nitrogen and perform photosynthesis, play an important part in the earth's ecosystem, when blooms form, especially usually when the water is still, polluted, or warm, a substantial amount of a variety of neurotoxins is produced. Neurotoxins are not to be taken lightly.

Just wondering out loud here. Did the JEF have anything to do with Netflix's poor performance?

Netflix signed up far fewer subscribers than it forecast in the second quarter of 2018.
The company said it added 670,000 streaming customers in the U.S., below its guidance of 1.2 million new subscribers. Internationally, the company added 4.47 million new subscribers, short of its guidance for 5 million. Wall Street had expected the company to report even more subscribers than it had forecast.

Filed under The ONT, always looking out for you. Water bottles in your hot car could be a problem.

lot of us are guilty of this: leaving water bottles in our cars.

Midwest City fire officials said it could start a fire inside your car.

If a plastic bottle is left in your car and the right amount of sunlight hits it at just the right angle, a car seat could catch fire.

Once again, a scary black inanimate object comes in very handy. Retired cop with AR-15 to the rescue.

The AR-15 is the most vilified gun in America. Gun control zealots continue to maintain that there are no legitimate, peaceful uses for these firearms in civilian hands. They claim that the only purpose of such weapons is to slaughter the innocent or similar such nonsense.

However, they’re valuable personal defense weapons that can end threats a handgun just can’t. Take, for example, what recently transpired in Oklahoma.
