    So, I am watching events of the last week with Trump winning again and again, as well putting together a pretty amazing cabinet. Then I read some whiny artivle about BIG guns surrounding Trump Tower and my thoughts raced to the movie “Battleship”. The last Epic 5 minutes with music and visuals of the Old Men of America enlisting their help to the new young Men and leaders and uniting in a common mission of defeating the enemy. In this case, some undocumented aliens from outerspace. This is Winning at it's finest and Trump just continues to win and so...

    This is the link to the PB Post Trump Voter Forum held last night. I was a participant and felt that it was worthy time spent. If the Admin staff can find a way to embed the link into a click-on video (it is currently not yet posted to their YouTube channel) I'd appreciate it. It took about 90 minutes and the discussion was at a pretty good level. Although there was some minor push back at times from the questioners, Rick Christie, the Editorial Page Editor and Howard Goodman, who is a columnist, I felt they tried their...

    The tiny Pacific island of Nauru has spent weeks completely cut off from the outside world after its telecommunications network collapsed. Its isolation is so complete that no one is even sure who the country's president is any more. Nauru, an isolated speck in the southwest Pacific with a population of 12,000, is in a "critical situation", according to the last message received by the outside world. That came via an address given three weeks ago by the man last believed to be running the country, President Bernard Dowiyogo, details of which were given on Friday by Radio Australia....

Menu items will include chocolate soft-serve, pudding, and traditional Asian desserts like patbingsoo (shaved ice with red beans and various other toppings).

    Dear Trump Supporters, You say you don't support Ted Cruz because he's a liar (even though he backs up everything he says) and plays dirty politics (like sabotaging Dr Carson's run in Iowa). The former has been dealt with every time it's brought up. I want to deal with the latter definitively. You say that Ted Cruz deliberately sabotaged Dr Carson in Iowa. However, it has been shown conclusively that Ted's team got the information from CNN who got the information from Dr Carson's team. If that hurt Dr Carson's results... show me one person who changed his vote because...

    German bathroom manufacturers are developing “multicultural toilets” to help ensure Middle Eastern migrants need not adapt to European sanitation norms. Multiple reports have emerged of recent arrivals finding themselves utterly “mystified” by Western loos. Some have resorted to doing their business on the floor or outdoors, others have used showers, and many migrants will have never seen toilet paper before. The issue caused some serious confusion last year, with one small German village being accused of racism after issuing leaflets politely asking migrants to use to the correct facilities.

But according to a new study, we've got more to mourn than just the animals themselves. We've lost their feces, too — and that's a bigger problem than you might think.

The event took place amid rising concerns about the water quality at venues for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, now less than a year away. The Americans were by far the hardest hit at the regatta that concluded over the weekend, with reports of vomiting and diarrhea. Other teams...

They claimed to be offering 'actual bull****' for a mere $6 to U.S. residents only.

    There's poop in public pools, according to a new report. Researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found genetic material from E. coli bacteria in 58 percent of public pools they tested during the summer of 2012. This shows that "swimmers frequently introduced fecal material into pools," which could spread germs to other people, the researchers wrote in their report. E. coli bacteria are normally found in the human gut and feces. They also found genetic material from bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, whichcan cause skin rashes and ear infections, in 59 percent of pools. The fecal material...

"People are also having a tendency not to pick up after their pets."

And while her results were, um...mixed, it was definitely a fun and interesting process. (More on this experience in a post next week.) Like me, most people test their mixed-breed dogs simply out of curiosity. Many mutts come from shelters and rescue groups where, although workers and volunteers do their best, a lot of background information isn't often available at the time of adoption. DNA tests can often shed light on our dog's ancestors,...

    The meatpacking industry causes 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions, mostly due to the release of methane from animals. The livestock industry also consumes huge amounts of feed and water in relation to the amount of meat that it yields, and many find the industry to be inhumane and cruel to animals. These factors alone are reason enough for vegetarians to replace their meat intake with vegetable proteins and legumes. But Ikeda, a scientist at the Environmental Assessment Center in Okayama, sought to further the field of alternative proteins by recycling a form of protein-rich waste : sewage mud....

Aid groups have said human waste has long been used on domestic crops in the impoverished communist state, but there is now a trade in the readily available commodity, a North Korea analyst told a seminar at a South Korean university. “Each household used to use human excrement as fertilizer. But because it’s hard to keep up with the amount, ‘human manure’ shops showed up at markets,” Kim Young-Soo,...

As soon as Johnnie Chace knew she’d host the president for a fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee at her home with husband Arnold “Buff” Chace, she followed one very local path to serve what she hopes is an amazing meal. “The first thing I thought was this is...

    Cambridge, Mass. (AP) - It stinks and it's a hazard to walkers everywhere, but it turns out dog poop has a bright side. Dog poop is lighting a lantern at a Cambridge dog park as part of a months-long project that its creator, artist Matthew Mazzotta, hopes will get people thinking about not wasting waste. The "Park Spark" poop converter is actually two steel, 500-gallon oil tanks painted a golden yellow, connected by diagonal black piping and attached to an old gaslight-style street lantern at the Pacific Street Park. After the dogs do their business, signs on the tanks instruct...

    What could contaminate the feed that caused the salmonella egg outbreak? How about feeding the chickens back their own manure and litter? If you think that that is far fetched, read here and here. The word "by-product" starts to take on a different meaning. Not only do chickens get fed chicken litter, but chicken litter is also fed to cows.

    This is why your mother says to wash your hands after handling money. An employee of DoodyCalls Pet Waste Removal in St. Louis says he recently found $58 packed in dog poop, then returned the cash to the pooch's owner.

But after pulling out the cash and cleaning it, he placed it in a plastic zip-locked bag and gave it back to the customer. The Association of Professional Animal Waste Specialists says...

    LAWRENCEBURG, Ind., Jan. 19 (UPI) -- An Indiana man fired after 30 years as an aircraft dispatcher says he is prospering through the recession by turning piles of doo-doo into piles of dough.

Kendall said he paid the $25,000 franchise fee in 2008 and his customer base has since grown to include 51...

    My dad was an electrician’s mate back in 1960 on the USS Valcour AVP-55. The ship was in drydock for an extended period, and since idle hand’s are the Devil’s tools, to keep the hands busy, the daily inspections became more of a focus than they ordinarily were when the ship was at sea. This rankled one man so much that he felt forced to take drastic action. Nowadays, we would say he suffered from post-inspection stress disorder, or PISD. Anyway, the Engineering Division, the largest in the ship, would muster each morning at 8 am on the fantail, where...

    This is a 5-minute video of MythBusters learning, and demonstrating, the Japanese art of "dorodungo" -- how to take real animal poo, and with a lot of work, make a high-gloss ball a few inches in diameter. In other words, they show how to "polish a turd". The political implications of this process, especially with regard to how the media spin-meisters treat recent administration screw-ups and related events, were inescapable...
