  • Russia’s new, stealthy rocket ships will soon be wreaking havoc at sea

    12/03/2017 6:58:30 AM PST · by SandRat · 26 replies
    The Sunday after Thanksgiving often coincides with what Catholics know as the First Sunday in Advent. This year things are different because Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday and will double as the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Going back to its religious roots, Advent is a time of waiting for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus Christ, and for most Germans that first Sunday is the official “kick off” to the holiday season. It is common for families to have a beautifully decorated tabletop wreath with four candles in their homes, and one additional candle being lit every Sunday...

    A radical new guide to the ever-widening world of cheese takes an accessible approach: Begin with what you love Up to now, cheese guides have tended to focus more on where and how cheese is made than on how best to enjoy it. Meanwhile, according to the USDA, Americans’ annual consumption of natural (as opposed to processed) cheese increased from 19.3 to 29.47 pounds per capita between 1995 and 2015, and the range of cheeses to choose from has become downright daunting. The time has come for “The Book of Cheese: The Essential Guide To Discovering Cheeses You’ll Love,” published...

    The buttery cheese, named after the word “doormat” for a very specific reason, dates to the 17th century. Naomi Tomky August 15, 2017 When my Quebec City tour guide mentions that the island we’re heading to has the oldest cheese in North America, I’m briefly concerned. A grotesque vision of a 150-year-old pickle my friend Harriet once told me about flashes before my eyes. But, what I learn upon arriving at the Île d'Orléans, 15 minutes from the capital, is that Paillasson is simply the oldest style of cheese in North America—it’s made fresh on the island, tastes extremely good...

  • Doctor: Americans Suffer From Unhealthy Addiction To Cheese

    DETROIT (WWJ) – Would you like to lose weight, have more energy, better health? Then stop eating cheese. That’s according to Dr. Neal Barnard, who’s down on dairy. Barnard says while Americans seem to have a love affair with cheese, it’s more of an unhealthy addiction. He makes his case in his book “The Cheese Trap.” “I think it’s addicting; and I don’t use the addicting word lightly,” he told WWJ’s Dr. Deanna Lites. “There are actually opiate chemicals in it that attach to the very same brain receptors as other opiates, and I’m going to argue that it’s probably...

    A Swedish man who spotted a rare white moose returned the next day and managed to capture video of the creature taking a dip in a local lake. Hans Nilsson said he has been trying to catch a glimpse of the rumored white moose -- sometimes known as an elk in Sweden -- in the Eda region for several years, but he never actually found one until last week. Nilsson posted a video to Facebook showing his second encounter with the alabaster moose, one day after his original sighting. "This white elk bull is local to the area. I saw...

    Orlando Sentinel ^ | 08/14/2017 | By Steven Lemongello
    Augustus Invictus, a former Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate from Orlando most famous for saying he sacrificed a goat and drank its blood, had an important role in the white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville on Saturday. Invictus, 34, was listed as a featured marcher for the Saturday event, which was roundly condemned after marchers carried Nazi flags, performed Hitler salutes and chanted white supremacist and anti-Semitic sayings while carrying torches. He could not be reached for comment Monday. Invictus lost the 2016 Libertarian primary for U.S. Senate in Florida to Paul Stanton, but not before state...

    The Local (Sweden) ^ | 30 June 2017
    Things you don't expect to happen on the golf course. Christer Sjögren had an unusual experience on Karlstad golf course when instead of an eagle or a birdie, he ran into an elk calf. When the young elk started chasing him, he ran, all while his friends laughed at him. His friend Tony Swahn, who shot the video, told The Local it had gone viral in Sweden. "It has really spread," he said. Sweden has seen violent elk attacks in the past, however in this case everything worked out well in the end, after the young animal slowly walked off...

    I am so tired of listening to liberals and weak Republicans arguing about a wall along our southern border that I want to scream. However, at this late date, I’m beginning to see their point. It IS expensive. It CAN be breached with a tall enough ladder. It CAN have holes cut in it. I finally have a cheap, foolproof, workable solution. Why don’t we just allocate a ˝ mile wide strip as “No Man’s Land” and plant land mines in it. That would be simple, cheap, fast, and very effective. Plus, we would be notified every time one of...
  • Recalling Alaska's most notorious drunken moose, the street-smart Buzzwinkle

    02/14/2017 7:00:46 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 3 replies
    Every autumn in recent years our boreal neighbors in Sweden and Norway have regaled the rest of the world with tales of drunken moose. In most of the stories, the moose have gotten smashed eating fermented apples, the active ingredient in applejack. Recently, near Stockholm, a "mob of boozed-up moose" threatened a homeowner, daring him to step into his own garden. The online magazine Slate called the news brief issued by Radio Sweden "the best thing on the Internet today." Sweden and Norway have lots of moose and loads of apple trees. Alaska has fewer moose and a paucity of...
  • "Polite" Moose Falls Into Family Basement In Idaho (Hold Muh Moose Alert)

    A family in the US state of Idaho had quite a shock when they awoke to find a moose had fallen into their home. The animal tumbled through an unlatched window into the basement of the property in the community of Hailey, in the state of Idaho. According to the Idaho Mountain Express, the female moose spent about three hours in the house after the mishap early on Sunday morning. Wildlife officials sedated the animal before releasing it unharmed. Homeowner Julie Emerick told the Mountain Express: "She was absolutely the most polite, gracious beast that you could have in your...

    The law was passed in 1919 under pressure from the Ku Klux KlanA nun in Nebraska who teaches in a secondary school has been told that she is not allowed to wear her habit in the classroom.  37-year-old, Sister Madeleine Miller, was shocked to learn that, under a little-known law nearly a century old, habits were banned.  The vaguely worded ban prohibits teachers from wearing any sort of religious clothing, from burqas to yarmulkes.  “I could have been arrested, jailed, fined or had my license taken away if I had tried to teach,” Miller said on Tuesday.Now, state lawmakers are...

    Are we headed towards another civil war? Can one be avoided? When you step back and see the ravenous hunger that the MSM has to bring down President Trump.... how they will spin and magnify and they glory in and relish in their own faults narratives… How they overload the echo chamber of news…until their masters create a crescendo.. Can the second civil war be avoided? War IS a real possibility! I fear possibly inevitable! Why? Because of who controls the news today… ...They will not let up… They have no conscience… They have no morals… They only have one...

    A moose was spotted in a parking lot at Bradley Airport this morning and it was captured on video. The moose got trapped in the parking lot of Enterprise Rent-A-Car at Bradley International Airport and Route 20 was briefly shut down while a team of Troopers, East Granby police and a crew from Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection corralled it back to open woods and swamp land. Moose are the largest members of the deer family.

    Captured in this video, the great white moose, the most majestic creature you’ve ever seen. We’ve seen our fair share of odd-colored animals, including a blue lobster and blue lingcod, but this all white, albino moose might take the cake. Check it out . . . even the velvet on the growing antlers is snow white! This majestic looking moose is basically equivalent to an Alaskan unicorn, and the fact that human population is so small in Alaska, makes this footage even more rare. This is a good reason why you should always have a camera on hand anytime you’re...
