    A central Florida newspaper has apologized to its readers for the decidedly anti-Donald Trump coverage that has been published during the election. The Daily Commercial published an editorial titled “The media, the election and bias” on Oct. 23 that explained the paper is reliant on wire services for much of its election coverage and those reports are weighted heavily against Trump. “The Daily Commercial hasn’t done enough to mitigate the anti-Trump wave in the pages of this paper,” it wrote. “You deserve a more balanced approach to the coverage of elections and other weighty issues.” Read more: http://www.bizpacreview.com/2016/10/30/fla-paper-makes-unprecidented-apology-readers-anti-trump-coverage-deserve-balance-406267#ixzz4OdXSJUkV
  • Resolute Forest cuts U.S. newsprint capacity, permanently shuts Georgia machine

    MONTREAL – Resolute Forest Products says it’s permanently shutting down one of its U.S. newsprint machines in response to ongoing challenges in the market. The Montreal-based pulp, paper and lumber producer says its U.S. mills are “especially vulnerable” in the present currency environment, when a strong American dollar weakens their competitive position. Resolute (TSX:RFP) recently announced price increases to its newsprint sales in the United States but doesn’t expect long-term demand to improve, unlike an anticipated recovery in demand for lumber for the U.S. housing market. The company says it anticipates a $20 million expense item will be recorded for...

    For a short window of about 80 years in the 13th century, small, portable bibles were produced on a large scale to satisfy the needs of the growing mendicant friar community and university students. Both groups needed bibles that were lightweight and easy to transport, a far cry from the large, thick-paged, multi-volume bibles common in scriptoria, libraries, churches and learning institutions. Between around 1220 and 1300, at least 20,000 and possibly as many as 30,000 portable bibles were produced, most of them in Paris, but also elsewhere in France, plus England, Italy and Spain. The university centers of Paris,...

    A Pennsylvania newspaper has issued an apology after it printed a letter calling for the execution of President Barack Obama. The letter, printed on Memorial Day in the Daily Item of Sunbury, called the president the “coward-in-chief” and called for his execution “by guillotine, firing squad or public hanging.” “Hey Barack, would you care to address the nation and expound on your grandiose plans for defeating this JV team which is whipping you soundly?,” W. Richard Stover of Lewisburg, Pa. wrote in the 370-word letter. The newspaper issued an apology Thursday, saying there was “no excuse” for printing the letter....

    Bill Cosby has refused to address the scores of rape allegations that have been hurled at him in recent months, but that doesn't mean he isn't working to clear his name. The comedian is allegedly paying private investigators six-figure fees to dig up dirt on the more than two dozen women who have come forward to accuse him of rape, according to a report in the New York Post. A source told the paper that Cosby has hired a Glendale, California, firm to discredit his many alleged victims' stories.

    An Alabama woman got more than she bargained for after she tried to clear toilet paper from her yard by setting it on fire and accidently burned down her house. Cheryl Crausewell's home and yard in Dora were TP'd by neighborhood kids on Saturday and the nightmare began when she and her son tried to quickly clear the paper from a tree with fire on Monday. A bit of the flaming toilet paper leaped from the tree, charred most of her yard, whipped around to a backyard barbecue propane tank and eventually engulfed the entire home. Crausewell suspects the propane...

    The Bilderberg Group meet ever year in June, and although the meeting is attended by heads of state, monarchs, heads of media and finance and captains of industry – the meeting is not open to the press and hidden from public view. Needless to say, these transatlantic power-broker Bilderbergers take a vow of secrecy and never leave a paper trail behind – except for the case of George C. McGhee (photo above). Here’s the story posted by Rundown Live, along with documents and photos that many of you might have missed… . Unusual Bilderberg Documents Uncovered at Georgetown University ....

    I have always been a reader and one of my snobbish instincts has been to shun people who do not read. Houses without books or magazines leave me cold. Yet now I realize that I have not bought a dead tree book in months and I have hit that Amazon link "Tell the publisher" many many times! On my iPad I have more than 240 books plus several Bible versions and multiple periodicals. Now I find myself refreshing my mind about a particular passage in a book in minutes instead of almost never. Additionally, I am privileged to be able...

    And the bid hits just keep on coming. While previously we reported the foreigners as an aggregate class sold the most gross US securities ever in the month of June, we also learned that in June the biggest selling came from America's two largest creditors: China and Japan (excluding the Fed of course, whose P&L losses are now approaching $300 billion in the past 3 months, or would if the Fed marked to anything but unicorns). In June, the two countries combined sold $42 billion, with each selling over $20 billion: the most in years.

    New York Times articles are not attacking the “occupation” anymore, but the very idea of a Jewish state. The New York Times has become the official paper of Israel’s Western would-be eradicators. Joseph Levine's latest oped argued that Israel has no right to exist and that history should be reversed: “I conclude, then, that the very idea of a Jewish state is undemocratic, a violation of the self-determination rights of its non-Jewish citizens, and therefore morally problematic”. The New York Times' relentless attacks could well play out in ways that indeed attempt to put an end to Israeli sovereignty. According...

    Soon after he took office, President Barack Obama began a process ultimately designed to reestablish full US diplomatic relations with Iran, including a reopening of embassies, an Israeli daily reported Sunday. The initiative, part of a wider shift in America’s diplomatic orientation, aimed at reaching understandings with Tehran over suspending its nuclear program, Maariv claimed, citing “two Western diplomats very close to the administration.” The initiative led to at least two US-Iran meetings, the report said. Israel was made aware of the contacts, and opposed them. But Iran rebuffed the “diplomatic hand” offered by the White House, Maariv reported.

  • A Nation of Paper, Not of Men

    In continuing the dramatic shift from American constitutional democracy to rule by executive fiat that has marked his tenure, President Barack Obama now claims that the illegal aliens, to whom he purports to grant what effectively is amnesty, are “Americans … in every single way but one — on paper.” That is false. They are not Americans under the only thing that matters, the thing the Obama administration has chanted like a mantra — while riding roughshod over – since its very first day in power: the rule of law. The Constitution and congressional statutes are written on parchment. That...

    Greenpeace on Wednesday accused global fastfood chain KFC of using paper packaging made using wood from Indonesian rainforests which it said was endangering the habitat of the Sumatran tiger. The environmental group said the chain's trademark chicken buckets and French fry boxes contained timber products from Asia Pulp & Paper (APP), which it described as the country's "notorious forest destroyer". To illustrate their cause, activists placed a giant KFC French fry holder depicting company founder Colonel Sanders holding a chainsaw in his hand and the words "KFC junking the jungle" written below on deforested peatland in Rokan Hilir, Riau province...
  • Lasers can 'unprint' documents

    British researchers say they've developed a laser process that can "uncopy" toner ink from paper as an alternative to traditional recycling. Scientists at the University of Cambridge say the process involves short laser pulses to erase words and images by heating the printed material to the point that it vaporizes. The technique works with commonly used papers and toner inks and is more eco-friendly than recycling, they said. "When you fire the laser, it hits the thin toner layer and heats it up until the point that you vaporize it," researcher David Leal-Ayala told the BBC. "Toner is mostly composed...

    BUENOS AIRES–Argentina's senate passed a controversial bill Thursday that gives the government control over newsprint, boosting the power of President Cristina Kirchner's administration in its battle against the opposition media. The legislation gives the state control over Papel Prensa SA, the country's leading producer of paper used to produce newspapers.
