    Dinosaur eggs point to the global Genesis Flood by Mike Oard 10-10-19 The first well-known discovery of dinosaur eggs was in Mongolia during the early 1920s. Then in the 1970s, Marion Brandvold found more dinosaur eggs, a few even containing embryos, in Montana, USA, at a 9-metre-high hill called ‘Egg Mountain’. This was later excavated by famous dinosaur paleontologist John Horner and colleagues. Researchers have now discovered eggs on almost all the continents of the world (figure 1). New egg sites are found each year and the estimated number of fossil dino eggs is in the millions. The best-known sites...

    The latest U.S. research on eggs won’t go over easy for those can’t eat breakfast without them. Adults who ate about 1½ eggs a day had a slightly higher risk of heart disease than those who ate no eggs. The study showed the more eggs, the greater the risk. The chances of dying early were also elevated. The researchers say the culprit is cholesterol, found in egg yolks and other foods, including shellfish, dairy products and red meat. The study focused on eggs because they’re among the most commonly eaten cholesterol-rich foods. They can still be part of a healthy...

    The Cuban government announced Friday that it is launching widespread rationing of chicken, eggs, rice, beans, soap and other basic products in the face of a grave economic crisis. Commerce Minister Betsy Díaz Velázquez told the state-run Cuban News Agency that various forms of rationing would be employed in order to deal with shortages of staple foods. She blamed the hardening of the U.S. trade embargo by the Trump administration. Economists give equal or greater blame to a plunge in aid from Venezuela, where the collapse of the state-run oil company has led to a nearly two-thirds cut in shipments...

    WHITEHALL, OH (WCMH) -- A Whitehall teenager is due in court Tuesday morning on charges that he stole eggs from the nest of a Canada Goose.

Police had received a call earlier that morning of a man hitting a goose. On police bodycam video, Teague initially says he got the eggs from the grocery store where he works. Police say he eventually confessed...

    If your family's from the Midwest (especially Wisconsin or Minnesota, both of which have a significant Scandinavian-rooted population), you might remember your grandma boiling up big, big batches of what she called Scandinavian coffee (or perhaps Norwegian or Swedish coffee, if she wanted to get specific). If she was making it for a church get-together, she might have called it church basement coffee and brought along one of these heavenly potluck dishes. But what was that secret-ingredient coffee that Gran made? If you peeked in the percolator, you might have seen it. The secret ingredient in Scandinavian coffee Eggs! They...

    Scientists can now quickly determine a chick’s gender before it hatches, potentially ending the need to cull billions of male chicks worldwide. The world’s first ever no-kill eggs are now on sale in Berlin after German scientists found an easy way to determine a chick’s gender before it hatches, in a breakthrough that could put an end to the annual live shredding of billions of male chicks worldwide. The patented “Seleggt” process can determine the sex of a chick just nine days after an egg has been fertilised. Male eggs are processed into animal feed, leaving only female chicks to...

    I’ve become very interested in Italy lately, and am especially drawn toward the Sorrento Peninsula/Amalfi Coast area. Searching for recipes from the region – and continuing in the interest of finding ways to use all of those squashes that are beginning to burgeon in your gardens - I found a recipe for Spaghetti alla Nerano. This is a pasta dish that comes from the fishing village of the same name, and uses fried zucchini. I found the recipe on a beautiful website dedicated to Italian cooking: ‘Memorie di Angelina’. Frank Fariello has done an amazing job with this blog, which...

    I have a few unrelated thoughts ahead of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend which for many will start tomorrow. 1. Having a child makes you a parent for the rest of your life, but that doesn’t mean you need provide room and board to said child for the rest of your life. “The Children Are Our Future” was not intended as a threat.2.  “Scientists” have now declared that if you drink just one additional glass of wine per week over and above what they’ve determined to be good for you, you will shorten your life by 30 minutes. Pretty precise...

    So what is driving liberals into an insane rage nowadays? The easy answer is President Donald Trump. However the more discerning among you would know that the subject of fire spoon eggs has caused an almost inconsolable rift among liberals with each side raging angrily at the other. The chronicler of this liberal civil war is one New York Times writer named Kim Severson whom we last met in 2014 writing up the obituary of Chick-fil-A founder, S. Truett Cathy, by describing him as a "symbol of intolerance." Now she is covering the liberal cultural war over fire spoon eggs. Her...

    In response to criticism over its role in the childhood obesity epidemic, the food industry vowed to only run TV ads for “healthier” foods to kids. Critics say the industry’s self-imposed rules don’t do much beyond giving them good publicity.Whether Tony the Tiger is declaring Frosted Flakes “grrreat” or a manic bird is going “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs,” food commercials remain mainstays of after-school TV even as childhood obesity has become a health crisis. For the last decade, the food industry has defended those ads in part by saying its products are relatively healthy — according to nutrition criteria it...

    It’s a mystery as hard to grab hold of as the slippery serpents supposedly at its centre: were the 43 unidentified eggs found in a sandpit at a school on the New South Wales mid-north coast snakes, or something less sinister? Snake social media went into meltdown on Tuesday when reports emerged that wildlife rescuers had been called in to remove a dozen mystery eggs from a sandpit at a school near the coastal town of Laurieton, 350km north of Sydney. The eggs caused a stir when they were widely reported as belonging to one of Australia’s deadliest reptiles, the...

    Twelve states are trying to take a California egg law to the Supreme Court, according to a lawsuit filed Monday. A dozen states filed the lawsuit Monday to block a California law requiring any eggs sold in the state must come from hens that have enough space to stretch out in their cages, reported The Associated Press. This law has cost consumers up to $350 million annually due to the higher egg prices, according to the Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley. The states suing are Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah and Wisconsin.

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — More than a dozen states banded together Monday to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to block a California law requiring any eggs sold there to come from hens that have space to stretch out in their cages. In a lawsuit filed directly to the high court, the states allege that California's law has cost consumers nationwide up to $350 million annually because of higher egg prices since it took effect in 2015. The lawsuit argues that California's requirements violate the U.S. Constitution's interstate commerce clause and are pre-empted by federal law. A federal appeals court...

    A cache of hundreds of eggs discovered in China sheds new light on the development and nesting behavior of prehistoric, winged reptiles called pterosaurs. Pterosaurs were fearsome-looking creatures that flew during the Lower Cretaceous period alongside dinosaurs. This particular species was believed to have a massive wingspan of up to 13 feet, and likely ate fish with their large teeth-filled jaws. Researchers working in the Turpan-Hami Basin in northwestern China collected the eggs over a 10-year span from 2006 to 2016. A single sandstone block held at least 215 well-preserved eggs that have mostly kept their shape. Sixteen of those...

    That gruesome sight in December 2015 soon became a crime scene, one that eventually implicated six students and recent graduates of a prestigious Honolulu prep school whose alumni include former president Barack Obama. While on a camping trip the night before the hiker’s arrival, authorities alleged, the boys and young men had hiked to the Ka’ena Point Natural Area Reserve and mercilessly slaughtered at least 15 Laysan albatrosses, federally protected birds that have been the focus of a 26-year-long conservation effort. Nearly a dozen of their eggs were crushed; six other eggs failed to hatch due to the death of...

    But the universe of wild bird eggs is far weirder and more diverse than the oval products on the supermarket shelf. Hummingbirds lay eggs shaped like Tic Tac mints - "perfect little ellipses," per ornithologist and evolutionary biologist Mary Stoddard. Sandpiper eggs come to peaks, in the manner of teardrops. Owls plop out tight spheres not unlike ping-pong balls ... scientists linked egg shapes to birds' flight behavior. Stronger fliers, such as swallows, had elongated or pointy eggs.
