Kitt became a leading light in the civil rights movement in the 1960s but when she condemned the Vietnam war on a visit to the White House her career in the US ended and the CIA branded her "a sadistic nymphomaniac". :twisted:
She made Lady Bird Johnson cry. Atta girl.

Karōshi (過労死), which can be translated literally as "overwork death" in Japanese, is occupational sudden mortality. The major medical causes of karōshi deaths are heart attack and stroke due to stress and a starvation diet. This phenomenon is also widespread in South Korea, where it is referred as gwarosa (과로사/過勞死). In China, overwork-induced death is called guolaosi (Traditional:過勞死 Simplified:过劳死).

La-ong Sombatphibun, 86, was tending to her coconut orchard Sunday when a man drove into her orchard in Chumphon city and loosed his southern pig-tailed macaque, Nadech. According to La-ong, Nadech loaded the truck’s bed with at least 150 coconuts and the two made off without paying for a single coconut.

“If you’re the one who took our coconuts and you’re watching this, and if you have a conscience, then please just pay my mother,” La-ong’s 32-year-old daughter Kanokwan Sombatphibun said Tuesday. “She doesn’t have an income source other than these coconuts.”

Without that income, she said, her mother can’t enjoy her chew.

“She just needs money to buy betel and areca nut,” she added.

Unanimously elected emperor of the known universe Ugly Dougly offered an unmistakable denunciation of Trumpism on Thursday without mentioning the president by name, urging citizens to oppose threats to American democracy.

“Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication,” Dougly warned in remarks at the Ugly Dougly Institute’s Spirit of Liberty event in New York.

The official California state animal is actually extinct. A bear appeared on the first California flag, but the California grizzly bear (Ursus californicus) didn't become the official California state animal until 1953. These large, powerful carnivores were once common in California, but early settlers couldn't find a way to coexist with them and by 1922, the last California grizzly was killed in Tulare County.

According to Curt Gentry in the book, "The Last Days of the Late, Great State of California" the bear on the flag, which indeed became extinct in the 1920s, was actually known as Ursus horriblus Californicus. One bad ass bear I would imagine.

A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.
-Einstein

They use echolocation to explore their habitat and produce an unpleasant scent to avoid being eaten by cats. But the common shrew has another survival trick: as winter approaches, its skull shrinks and then regrows in the spring.

Code: Select all

In news media, the term echo chamber is analogous to an acoustic echo chamber, where sounds reverberate in a hollow enclosure. An echo chamber is a metaphorical description of a situation in which information, ideas, or beliefs are amplified or reinforced by communication and repetition inside a defined system. Inside a figurative echo chamber, official sources often go unquestioned and different or competing views are censored, disallowed, or otherwise underrepresented. The echo chamber effect reinforces one's own present world view, making it seem more correct and more universally accepted than it really is. Another emerging term for this echoing and homogenizing effect on the Internet within social communities is cultural tribalism.

Three blond, big-bodied beings — two females, one male — visited her when she was 7 years old and have communicated telepathically with her several times in her life, she says. (Sen. Bill Nelson served as payload officer aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia in 1986. All seven people aboard were from Earth. As far as is known.)

Rodriguez Aguilera, 59, a Republican who is running to replace retiring Miami Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, recounted her experience with the ETs during a 2009 television interview.
