    Will a warming world eventually kill off roe deer in France? That question is being raised in light of new research indicating that the animals are having a hard time adapting to climate change. In a study published Tuesday in the open-access journal PLOS Biology, researchers tracked the births and subsequent survival of roe deer fawns in France's Champagne region. They noted that spring vegetation on which the adult deer depend for food was starting to flourish two weeks earlier that it did nearly three decades ago, due to gradual warming. But although spring was arriving earlier, the animals' birth...

    The proposed move will take the Pentagon from the banks of the Potomac River to northwest Kansas. WASHINGTON (April 1, 2010) -- Top Army officials unveiled plans early today to relocate the massive Pentagon building to the western part of Kansas sometime this summer. "This move will be a huge undertaking, but we determined it was a necessary step as we realign our force structure," said one of the Army's top generals. "Once we started investigating the possibility of the move, we determined that it was not only critical to our efforts, but that it would be good for our...

    IN a major behind-the-scenes blowout, President BARACK OBAMA and first lady MICHELLE waged their worst White House fight ever over her lavish vacation trip to China! Sources tell The ENQUIRER that Obama exploded when Mi­chelle refused to cancel her pricey getaway – even after White House advisers warned him that the first couple’s six-year string of extravagant vacations had already drained the U.S. Trea­sury of a whopping $150 million in tax­payers’ money.

    Google might not be a scrappy startup anymore, but despite being one of the biggest companies in the world, they have managed to hold on to a unique sense of humour and that's most apparent on April 1 every year. The company has a long tradition of April Fools' Day jokes, and different teams like Chrome and Maps and Gmail all come up with their own pranks so there's a lot to choose from just out of Google. Last year, more than a few people actually believed that Google Nose - a sniff search system - was a real thing....

    Original Content | April 2, 2013 | By Laz A. Mataz
    On March 31st, Easter Sunday, Google posted as their logo-based 'Doodle' a picture honoring far-left union activist Cesar Chavez. This was done instead of honoring the most important Christian holiday in America. Predictably, this led to a large and vocal backlash of Christians and conservatives who were angered that Google paraded out a leftwing icon, rather than acknowledge their Holy Day. The next day, on April Fools Day, I posted this thread, "Google Apologizes to Christians For Easter Cesar Chavez 'Doodle'". Sadly, it was an April Fools Joke.... and while I was delighted at the number of people I fooled,...

March 27 marked his twentieth year with the Dilbert Police Department and the day that he was first issued his Glock semi automatic pistol. “In 20 years, thousands of rounds, I never had a jam, malfunction, hell, any real problem with it until [that day],” Walker said and, on the verge of tears, added. “I don’t know I could trust a Glock again...

"Israel is a solid ally of the United States. We will rise to Israel's defense, if need be. So this kind of menacing talk is disturbing. It's not...

    ELECTRONIC TAGGING for “tax exiles” is being considered by the Department of Finance in advance of next week’s budget. The measure is aimed at monitoring the presence in the State of individuals who claim to be non-resident for tax purposes. Last year, 5,803 people claimed non-residency for tax. The Revenue believes that 440 of those are “high net worth” individuals. “These are the people who we’d be aiming this proposal at,” a spokesman for the department said. Foreign-based Irish millionaires can avoid Irish tax if they spend fewer than 183 days in the State. Last November, Minister for Finance Brian...

In 1953 it turned out the find wasn't proof of anything—other than the skill of the still anonymous forger. The skull was a medieval human's. The jaw was an orangutan's. And the teeth were a chimp's.

    U.S counter-terrorism officials would neither confirm nor deny a report that fugitive Boston mobster Whitey Bulger has been spotted stirring up trouble in Iraq. Bulger, whose mug has graced the FBI’s Most Wanted list since his disappearance in 1994, is reportedly the kingpin of a mafia/terrorist cell known as the Winter Hill Jihad. U.S. intelligence sources say the lawless environment in the newly Democratic nation is well-suited to Bulger’s penchant for extortion and murder. But Bulger rarely appears in public, leaving most of the dirty work to his top henchman, Sayid "The Rifleman" al-Flemmi and "Cadillac Faruq" Salaami. To elude...

    Cave drawings thought to 25,000 years old have been discovered in a grotto in western France. Several of the drawings—one showing an apparently turban-wearing human figure eating a wild pig—are deemed to be offensive to Islam. Coming on top of the cartoons of Mohammed published in Denmark and reprinted in several other European countries, Muslim anger has continued to swell. “These infidels cannot continue to mock us without consequence,” said Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah. “The West should be prepared for the real holocaust.

If passed, this legislation would have Mexican citizens living in those states vote on returning these lands to Mexico. "These are our citizens who are living in lands that belong to Mexico. These lands were stolen by those gringo dogs, and we have every right to own them. This is a...
