  • Anthony Bourdain—What the Media Eulogies Left Out

    06/16/2018 8:07:41 AM PDT · by rktman · 111 replies ^ | 6/16/2018 | Humberto Fontova
    In brief, Antony Bourdain wore his “anti-corporate hipness” on his shirtsleeve, always smirking and snarking that “evil corporations” and “crass commercialism” repelled him. But he gleefully signed on as a shameless tourism agent for the Castro-Family-and-Military Crony-Crime Syndicate, a thieving, murdering criminal-corporate empire that makes the Mafia look like Boy Scouts of America. “I will never eat in his (Donald Trump’s) restaurant. I have utter contempt for him, utter and complete contempt… I’m not going. I’m not going.” (Anthony Bourdain, Eater.)

    "We saw them out on the ledge as we were shooting other photos and that "Eureka!" moment just unfolded," says photographerThis wedding snapshot just might put every other couples' big day photos to shame. Photographer Mike Karas of Hawaii was simply enjoying the sunset when he says he happened to be in the right place at the right time. As a newlywed couple emerged from the shadows, Karas snapped a once-in-a-lifetime photo of the unidentified duo as they embraced on top of a cliff in Yosemite with the golden sun setting behind them. The unforgettable moment turned out to be...

    Defense officials told Fox News that 11 Green Berets from Fort Carson in Colorado Springs were involved in a climbing training exercise Thursday on 14,259-foot Longs Peak, but a few of them had trouble continuing. The group ended up spending the night. Rocky Mountain National Park spokesman Kyle Patterson said they're helping one another climb to the summit of Longs Peak and that rangers are helping as needed. Two soldiers got altitude sickness, and the other soldiers decided to spent the night on the mountain, 10th Special Forces group spokesman Lt. Col. Sean Ryan told ABC News. “No one is...
  • State Department report finds Iran is top state sponsor of terror

    CNN ^ | June 2, 2016 | Ryan Browne
    The State Department on Thursday released its annual report on global terrorist activity, listing Iran as the top state sponsor of terrorism and labeling ISIS "the greatest threat globally." The report also includes statistics on terrorist activity worldwide, and said 11,774 terrorist attacks in 92 countries occurred in 2015. Iran's designation and continued sponsoring of terrorism is bound to fuel criticism of the Iran nuclear deal. Critics of the deal have charged that the removal of economic sanctions would allow Iran to increase its support of terror groups.
  • Mental And Physical Toll Of Bullying Persists For Decades

    What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger, right? Well, not when it comes to bullying. Some may still consider bullying a harmless part of growing up, but mounting evidence suggests that the adverse effects of being bullied aren't something kids can just shake off. The psychological and physical tolls, like anxiety and depression, can follow a person into early adulthood. In fact, the damage doesn't stop there, a British study published this week in the American Journal of Psychiatry suggests. It actually lasts well into the adults' 40s and 50s. "Midlife ... is an important stage in life because...
  • Comet Makes Suicidal Plunge Into Sun (Video)

    A small comet dove headlong toward the sun this week in a cosmic death-dive captured on camera by a spacecraft — an opening act of sorts for the highly anticipated close solar approach of another comet, Comet ISON, in a few months' time. The minuscule and apparently nameless comet was captured barreling toward our star Monday (Aug. 19) by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft operated by NASA and the European Space Agency. Scientists created of video of the comet's dive toward the sun using the SOHO images. The little comet failed to emerge on the other side of...

    What does it take to get deported? More than you would think. Deportation has become a near-taboo word. Yet the Boston bombings inevitably rekindle old questions about the way the U.S. admits, and at times deports, foreign nationals. Despite the Obama administration’s politically driven and cyclical claims of deporting either a lot more or a lot fewer non-citizens, no one knows how many are really being sent home — for a variety of reasons.(snip) Unless the government can assure the public that it is now enforcing immigration laws already on the books, that foreign nationals must at least avoid crime...

    The Strategy ^ | April 4, 2013 |
    The mythical North Korean “Ministry of Intimidation” is working overtime to come up with new threats each day. The government is using these threats mainly to create tension inside North Korea and more support for new ruler Kim Jong Un. This is essential this time of year because the food shortages are always worst just before new crops are planted. But it’s also the time of year when it gets warmer and the days are longer. This is a big deal because of the growing electricity shortages. This sort of drama in North Korea is nothing new but it’s never...

    IT is a shame that William F. Buckley Jr. passed away in 2008. The conservative movement could use him — or someone like him — right now. In the 1960s, Buckley, largely through his position at the helm of National Review, displayed political courage and sanity by taking on the John Birch Society, an influential anti-Communist group whose members saw conspiracies everywhere they looked. Fast forward half a century. The modern-day Birchers are the Tea Party. By loudly espousing extreme rhetoric, yet holding untenable beliefs, they have run virtually unchallenged by the Republican leadership, aided by irresponsible radio talk-show hosts...

    The debate on the intentions of Glenn Beck and other Christian evangelicals rages on, and Dr. Gadi Eshel, a Land of Israel activist, told Arutz 7 Tuesday that while he did not believe that Beck's intentions were improper, rejecting the friendship of evangelicals could cause anti-Semitism. Eshel was responding to comments by Jerusalem City Council member Mina Fenton Monday, who voiced vociferous opposition to Beck's appearance in Jerusalem on Wednesday, saying that his rally was designed to encourage missionary activity. Eshel told Arutz 7 that Christians like Beck supported Israel because they were strong believers in the Bible, and not...

    Police surrounded a man’s house after one of his “friends” warned the cops that he might be suicidal. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your perspective) the guy was down the street at a bar watching the whole thing on TV. The mayor is calling it a very expensive ($75,000) hoax, but the cops are still investigating: Cops are referring to this operation as a “well-being check”. They apparently take these well-being checks pretty seriously:

    Disgraced politician John Edwards is said to be deeply depressed - to the point of being suicidal - over the prospect of a criminal trial that could end with him being jailed if found guilty. The 57-year-old former Presidential candidate reportedly told a close friend: 'I won't go to jail. I'd kill myself first!' He has lost 20lb in the last year and is a 'broken spirit,' reports the National Enquirer. According to the Enquirer, a close source said: 'I think John is suicidal. He knows that if he's indicted, prosecutors will try to get him to serve jail time...

    Vodka eyeballing. It’s the latest drinking fad on YouTube, and it could cause blindness. Hundreds of online videos that originated in the U.K. show teens pouring vodka directly into their eyes, straight from the bottle. The videos are getting hundreds of thousands of hits, reported. Substance abuse expert Mike Gumbel claims kids aren’t eyeballing to get drunk faster, but do it when the effects of alcohol have already set in and impaired their judgment. Eyeballing is more of a prank than a way to become more intoxicated. “They’re not doing it to get more drunk, they’re doing it as...

    NEW YORK (AP) - In a 13-story building, damaged by debris from the Sept. 11 airliners that brought down the World Trade Center and soon to become a mosque, some see the bridging of a cultural divide and an opportunity to serve a burgeoning, peaceful religious population. Others see a painful reminder of the religious extremism that killed their loved ones. Two Muslim organizations have partnered to open the mosque and cultural center in lower Manhattan, saying the $100 million project will create a venue for mainstream Islam and a counterbalance to radicalism. It earned a key endorsement this week...

    Clashes in Tehran as opposition defies regime warnings Philippe Naughton Clashes broke out on the streets of Tehran today as tens of thousands of Iranians marched in favour of the opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, defying government warnings and a heavy police presence at an annual rally to show solidarity with the Palestinians. The demonstrators carried accessories in green, the signature colour of Mr Mousavi’s election campaign, for what was the first demonstration in two months against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's contested re-election in June. But the protest soon sparked violence as fistfights broke out with Ahmadinejad loyalists. Witnesses said that at...
