    Lame duck District Attorney Abel Reyna continues his personal war against members of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club who attended the Confederation of Club’s and Independents meeting at the Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17, 2015. Approximately 70 members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and two Cossacks support clubs attended the meeting with the intention of intimidating members of the Bandidos, members of clubs that were friendly with the Bandidos and motorcycle enthusiasts who were not affiliated with any club. Multiple Cossacks in attendance at the event and Cossacks who were not at the event explained to police and the press...
  • DINOSAURS and the Gravity Problem

    The Anomalist ^ | 1994 | Ted Holden
    Scientists delight in devising explanations for the great dinosaur extinctions. But there are several questions which they have failed to even ask, much less tried to answer. Why, for instance, in all of the time claimed to have passed since the dinosaur extinctions, has nothing ever re-evolved to the sizes of the large dinosaurs? If such sizes worked for creatures which ruled the Earth for tens of millions of years, then why would not some species of elephant or rhinoceros have evolved to such a size again? What kinds of problems, if any, would sauropod sizes entail in our world...

    A disagreement between Chinese tourists and a hostel in Stockholm over check-in time has turned into a diplomatic spat between China and Sweden, after Beijing criticised Sweden for violating the human rights of Chinese citizens. [snip] Bizarre video footage posted online shows police carrying the group outside, while the son yells in English: “This is killing.

    Earlier this summer, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Since Wednesday, she has watched as that bare-bones version of her story became public without her name or her consent, drawing a blanket denial from Kavanaugh and roiling a nomination that just days ago seemed all but certain to succeed. Now, Ford has decided that if her story is going to be told, she wants to be the one to...

    Twice a week, at around 11 p.m., Jeff Goldstein stretches out, turns on his spa playlist, lights a candle and gets a 90-minute massage — courtesy of his children’s nanny. “At first, [I felt] a little awkward,” admitted Goldstein, 41, who has two kids and co-owns the celeb-favorite clothing boutique Blue & Cream in the Hamptons and East Village with his wife, Samantha Greenes. “But then, it was so, so good.” Having a nanny who can teach your kid a second language doesn’t cut it anymore in New York City’s elite circles. Now there’s a fleet of super nannies who...

  • Do-it-yourself colonoscopy wins Japanese doctor one of 10 2018 Ig Nobels

    A Japanese doctor was recognized Thursday with an Ig Nobel prize, which honor comical but practical scientific studies, for devising the most comfortable colonoscopy technique by using himself as a test subject. ... Doing a self-colonoscopy while sitting, Horiuchi discovered the method facilitated entry. After a series of trials, he shared his personal experiences in a 2006 medical report titled, “Colonoscopy in the Sitting Position: Lessons Learned From Self-Colonoscopy.” But Horiuchi isn’t recommending that you give yourself a colonoscopy in the comfort of your home. He said via email that many people are afraid of getting a colonoscopy and he...
  • A warmer world makes hurricanes wetter and more intense [barf]

    Associated Press ^ | Sep. 14, 2018 7:01 PM EDT | Seth Borenstein
    A warmer world makes for nastier hurricanes. Scientists say they are wetter, possess more energy and intensify faster. Their storm surges are more destructive because climate change has already made the seas rise. And lately, the storms seem to be stalling more often and thus dumping more rain. Study after study shows that climate change in general makes hurricanes worse. But determining the role of global warming in a specific storm such as Hurricane Florence or Typhoon Mangkhut is not so simple — at least not without detailed statistical and computer analyses. The Associated Press consulted with 17 meteorologists and...
  • Clients who received ‘vampire facial’ at spa are urged to be tested for HIV

    The state health department said it is not aware of any new blood-borne infections after the department announced the closure of an Albuquerque spa being investigated for concerning practices. VIP Spa, located on 809 Tijeras Avenue in Albuquerque, is closed indefinitely. The New Mexico Department of Health, along with the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department and the Board of Barbers and Cosmetologists Board, inspected the spa on Friday after a client developed an unspecified infection that may have resulted from a procedure done there, according to a news release from the health department. The health department is now urging...
  • California Clinic Claims Infusions of 'Young Blood' Could Effectively Reverse the Aging Process

    ampires, it seems, have gone mainstream. According to The New York Post, “drinking young people’s blood could help you live longer and prevent age-related diseases.” (It could also cause you to develop sensitivity to light, sleep in some unusual places, and morph into a small flying rodent, but beggars can’t be choosers.) Actually, though, the Post’s claim is somewhat misleading. Patients don’t really have to drink the blood, they can receive it via transfusion. Technology has advanced, it seems, even for vampires. Jesse Karamazin, the California "doctor" behind this anti-aging regimen, doesn’t actually have a license to practice medicine, but...

    Today, Diane Feinstein, Senator from California, revealed that she referred a secret letter to the FBI, for a thorough investigation. In this letter, an anonymous woman claims that Brent Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriately with her when they were both in high school. This is an extraordinarily disturbing development. And while this revelation -- known all summer and produced after he has been questioned by the full Senate -- is enough to disqualify anyone from any appointed position, there is much more to reveal. Let us all consider the momentous seriousness of this horrific accusation. There is nobody reading this column...

    One of the most celebrated groups in the mainstream media is transgendered people or people who suffer from gender dysphoria. This lead to transgenderism becoming a fad that had many people claiming to be transgendered, especially among the young. However, data now shows that those young people who do embrace a life of transgenderism seem to have abnormally high suicide rates. ..... Female to male adolescents reported the highest rate of attempted suicide (50.8%), followed by adolescents who identified as not exclusively male or female (41.8%), male to female adolescents (29.9%), questioning adolescents (27.9%). ..... Compared to the suicide rate...

    Erik Rintamaki was searching for rocks on a Michigan beach last summer when he made what he calls a "mind blowing" discovery. Resting among the thousands of pebbles covering the Lake Superior beach, Rintamaki saw a glowing rock. The gem and mineral dealer told CBS News he often goes rock hunting. But on this particular June night, he found a rock unlike any other — a florescent orb that he later named "Yooperlite." Like lava glowing through cracks in the earth, a glowing light seeped out of the lines in the small rock. Rintamaki knew this couldn't be the only...

    Those pale button mushrooms in your supermarket hardly do justice to the diversity of fungi. The world hosts an incredible array of these important organisms—and mycologists are discovering more than 2000 new species a year, including ones that live on driftwood, bat guano, and even an oil painting. That’s according to a new report, titled State of the World’s Fungi, from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, a botanical research institution in Richmond, U.K. The lavishly illustrated overview covers the usefulness of fungi (think beer, bread, and penicillin, for starters) as well as the serious threats that some fungi pose to...
