Gina McCarthyThe Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility took a swipe at the EPA for sending bureaucrat Gina McCarthy on an greenhouse gas generating five city tour for Earth Day.

McCarthy will be participating in “various events to…focus on responsible steps to cut carbon pollution to slow the effects of climate change” in New York, Boston, Cleveland, Atlanta and Memphis.

Some activities on the tour were called into question.

Ruch noted that some events on McCarthy’s itinerary have questionable ties to promoting climate action, such as joining Energy Secretary Moniz to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at Tuesday’s Red Sox vs. Yankees baseball game at Boston’s Fenway Park.  More

Moving in with parents becomes more common for the middle-aged

Posted By Staff

Date: April 22nd, 2014

More Californians move in with parentsCalifornia – Debbie Rohr lives with her husband and twin teenage sons in a well-tended  three-bedroom home in Salinas.

The ranch-style house has a spacious kitchen that looks out on a yard filled with rosebushes. It’s a modest but comfortable house, the type that Rohr, 52,  pictured for herself at this stage of life.

She just never imagined that it would be her childhood home, a return to a bedroom where she once hung posters of Olivia Newton-John and curled up with her beloved Mrs. Beasley doll.

Driven by economic necessity — Rohr has been chronically unemployed and her  husband lost his job last year — she moved her family back home with her  77-year-old mother.  More

Head injury during bar fight turns ordinary guy into math whiz

Jason PadgettWhen Jason Padgett pours cream into his morning coffee, this is what he sees:

“I watch the cream stirred into the brew. The perfect spiral is an important shape to me. It’s a fractal. Suddenly, it’s not just my morning cup of joe, it’s geometry speaking to me.”

 Padgett’s world is bursting with mathematical patterns.

He is one of a few people in the world who can draw approximations of fractals, the repeating geometric patterns that are building blocks of everything in the known universe, by hand.

Tree leaves outside his window are evidence of Pythagoras’ Theorem. The arc that light makes when it bounces off his car proves the power of pi.  More

U.S. Bureau of Land Management eyes 90,000 acres of Texas land

Posted By Staff

dont messTexas – After the recent Bundy Ranch episode by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Texans are becoming more concerned about the BLM’s focus on 90,000 acres along a 116 mile stretch of the Texas/Oklahoma boundary.

The BLM is reviewing the possible federal takeover and ownership of privately-held lands which have been deeded property for generations of Texas landowners.

Sid Miller, former Texas State Representative and Republican candidate for Texas Agriculture Commissioner, has since made the matter a campaign issue to Breitbart Texas.

“In Texas,” Miller says, “the BLM is attempting a repeat of an action taken over 30 years ago along the Red River when Tommy Henderson lost a federal lawsuit. The Bureau of Land Management took 140 acres of his property and didn’t pay him one cent.”  More

Oklahoma militiaOKLAHOMA CITY  - A land dispute in Nevada  between rancher Cliven Bundy and the federal government began decades ago.

Organizers with the Oklahoma Militia say they have members in Nevada who claim Bundy’s cattle were unlawfully herded by the bureau.

The Oklahoma Militia says it is made up of nearly 50,000 volunteers.

Members say they are taking Bundy’s side and fear this practice could spread to the Sooner State.

beer weaponAustralia – Two Australian men  were able to stop a savage dog attack on a 90-year-old woman by using a six-pack  of Victoria Bitter beer as a weapon.

The woman, Irene Koutsounadis, is in critical condition after being  brutalized by her daughter’s American pit bull terrier, but it would have been  much worse if it had not been for Justin Innes and his son Jacob.

The men were on their way to a Good Friday dinner when they saw the canine  with a “vice-like grip” on Koutsounadis.

“We thought the screaming was a fight or something so we did a light jog around  the corner and there was a dog basically chewing a lady’s face off. I’ve never  seen so much blood,” the elder Innes told the Brisbane Times.  More

“Mom says she went back into the house to get a baby bottle, and some guy jumped in her car with her twins and her 1-year-old,” HLN reports.

The man reportedly drove the kids nearly ten miles across town before he gave up because of the twins’ courageous actions.

“The twins attacked the suspect. Kicking him and beating him with a toy snake.”

Although the boys’ mother was reluctant to buy the toy snake, she told TXCN, “I guess God knew he was going to use it today.”  More
