    Today is the 10th day of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Since one of the main goals of the Olympics is to popularize physical activity, here we will discuss which winter sports are considered to be the best for one’s health. Check out the benefits of Skating, Curling and Snowboarding compared to skiing. The first association most people have with the words "winter sports" are skis. Indeed, many studies show that skiing can help people to lose weight, increase their stamina, strengthen the cardiovascular system and even immunity, and improve respiratory function. It may seem that, compared to...

    As you can see, the low sunspot activity of the past two months continued in January. November 2017 remains the most inactive month for sunspots since the middle of 2009. January is now the second most inactive month, with December a very close third...Regardless, the low activity, this soon, continues to suggest that the next maximum will also be weak, and might even not come at all, as some solar scientists have proposed. Instead, we might be heading toward another Grand Minimum, with no significant sunspots for decades.
  • California mudslides: Frantic search for survivors as death toll rises

    (CNN)Rescuers searched piles of debris for survivors after tons of mud, trees and boulders swept away homes in Southern California this week, killing 17 people. Heavy rains sent rivers of mud tumbling down hillsides Tuesday, demolishing homes in the affluent seaside community of Montecito weeks after a massive fire charred the area last month.
  • Gore Says Bitter Cold Confirms Global Warming [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 7 Jan 2018 | John Semmens
    Former Vice-President Al Gore confidently brushed aside the possibility that this past week's bitter cold across much of North America might indicate that the global warming he has profitably been hyping for the last 15+ years could be mistaken. "The theory of global warming, or climate crisis that I now like to call it, postulates that any change in the weather merely confirms the global warming hypothesis," Gore declared. "The most important action anyone can take at this time is to continue to buy copies of my books and movies explaining how it all fits together." Meanwhile, observations of solar...

    If you’re a chocolate lover like most of normal people out there, boy, do we have bad news for you: according to an official (as in governmental) report courtesy of NOOA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association), due to anthropogenic (as in man-made) climate change/global warming/whatchamacallit, by the year 2050 chocolate will become a thing of the past. Why? Well, due to climate change driven by your gas guzzler, your air conditioner, your latest iPhone or whatever, growing cacao trees will become next to impossible in the not-so-distant future, hence chocolate will suffer the fate of the dodo bird. That means,...

    In hiding, John Kerry remains the same way he was in office: lying with the dogs and catching fleas CFP’s intuitive cartoonist, ‘Dag Barkley’ hide-y-hole has been asking us to suss out where former Secretary of State John Kerry may be hiding now that he’s dropped out of newspaper headlines. We knew even without a Google search, that wherever Kerry’s hide-y-hole was it was bound to e a most comfy one. The latest Kerry sighting seems to have come from longtime D..C. reporter Paul Bedard over at the Washington Examiner:

    2017: Bye-Bye to the Year of the Lie Through the teeniest of gaps on heavily frosted window panes looking out on a snowbound world, comes a picture of the real Barack Hussein Obama. While folk shiver and wait out snow squalls in the Midwest and North East, the Obamas are sweating it out in the global-warmed state of Hawaii, Michelle and Malia at a yoga facility, a short-sleeved shirt-sporting Barack being serenaded with the words of a song he refuses to say himself.

    The true mark of a shyster is to take advantage of every opportunity to milk a person for money, and especially when emotions and sympathy run high. Christmas is one of those times. I give you exhibit A, Al Gore’s “Climate Reality Project”. I got this in my inbox this morning.Of course, when you click on that donate button, Al doubles down:Yes, send money to Al Gore to “end the climate crisis”. Yeah, that’s the ticket. He has quite a payroll to support, just look at all the employees here Anybody stupid enough to fall for this, especially on...

    The Washington Examiner published a lengthy piece on President Trump’s accomplishments in his first eleven months in office. It’s a lengthy Nice List, and one that much of the liberal media and the Democrats—that’s redundant, I know—refuse to discuss. So what are the Best of the Best in my oh-so-humble opinion? Well, here are my Top Six Trump’s Greatest Wins for 2017: Trump: Winning! (Photo Credit: Denver Post) ISIS: Barack Obama spent years pretend-fighting ISIS, a product of his piss-poor foreign policy.

    Dear members of the UN Security Council: After you decided to attempt to humiliate and insult the United States in the wake of our decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move our Embassy there by supporting a passive-aggressive resolution by Egypt stating its “regret” at the recent “decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem,” there’s only one thing left to say: Pound sand, you cowardly, worthless, corrupt, mismanaged savages! Yes, that includes the members, who are supposed to be our stalwart allies: the United Kingdom, Italy, and France, who have spent decades hiding under our nuclear NATO...

    The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which oversees the Internal Revenue Service, reports that in fiscal 2016 the IRS closed four cases in which IRS employees were found to have violated a law governing their behavior toward taxpayers and that these violations included “harassing and abusing taxpayers and using obscene and profane language.” In 1998, Congress enacted a law imposing restrictions on the way that IRS employees could treat taxpayers. As explained by the IG, this included a prohibition on an IRS employee contacting a taxpayer at “unusual or inconvenient times,” contacting the taxpayer directly if the taxpayer “has...

    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    Mayors from 51 cities from across the U.S. and around the world are meeting in Chicago to hear from former President Obama and sign a document they are calling the “Chicago Climate Charter.” President Trump announced his intention to pull the U.S. out of the UN’s Paris Climate Accord, however, the terms of the Accord delay his taking formal action until November, 2019. The mayors gathered in Chicago, meanwhile, are vowing to bypass the federal government and create climate policies of their own. USA Today reports that the Chicago Charter calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at least 26% to...

    Jerry Brown, and his fellow governors and mayors seeking a climate agreement with foreign entities should be arrested, removed from office, and replaced by special election for their seditious and illegal behavior Since the current White House disagrees with his liberal left philosophies, and his blind religiosity concerning the man-made climate change myth, California Governor Jerry Brown has decided to go over the head of the President of the United States in a manner some may consider seditious. Governor Brown is in Germany, right now, negotiating an alliance with foreign countries, in defiance of the Trump administration, and the United...

    Marxist Brown is at war with Donald Trump California Gov. Jerry Brown says the world needs ‘brain washing’ on climate change. Sounding indeed brainwashed, Brown said, “The problem ... is us. It’s our whole way of life. It’s our comfort ... It’s the greed. It’s the indulgence. It’s the pattern. And it’s the inertia.” I hate to be a party pooper but the totalitarian trio of Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot also said the world needed brainwashing. But I digress. Brown arrived at the Vatican in Rome Friday for 14 days of “climate talks.” Yet Sacrament Bee reporter Christopher Cadelago,...

    Early on this summer when I found myself down by Santa Rosa, AZ watching a gorgeous hail core fall on the stunning desert landscape, and then later that day staring at a haboob with a stacked shelf cloud above it near the border of Mexico, I had a feeling it would be a unique monsoon. It's funny how every year is different. That's the beauty of chasing the summer storm season out here in the desert southwest. You never know what's going to happen or what you might see.
