    Not content with having won the White House and expanded its majorities in the House and Senate, the Left is now training its vitriol on ... a calendar. No joke. The same tolerance-worshiping Obama supporters who demanded change and got it are now suffering brain aneurisms from the mere existence of calendar celebrating (gasp!) conservative women. Less than twenty-four hours after the launch of the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s “Pretty in Mink” calendar, an onslaught of angry leftist bloggers unleashed a torrent of visceral hatred—aimed at everything from the calendar’s photography and makeup to the women’s physical appearance.

    MONTREAL — Using pretty women to sell beer is not exactly a novel idea, but Molson finds itself under attack this week for a series of calendars featuring scantily clad Quebec "goddesses." The idea was to highlight the most beautiful women from five Quebec regions, and auditions were held to make the selections. In some cases the winners received a trip to Cuba for the photo shoot. The images (which you can see here, and are only marginally safe for work) are for the most part no racier than what one would find in Sports Illustrated's swimsuit edition (Mind you,...

    SPOKANE, Wash. - They made a list, but they should have checked it twice. In a December newsletter to the families of elementary school students, Spokane Public Schools' list of "important dates" didn't include Christmas. Hanukkah, Human Rights Day, winter break, the Islamic holy day Eid al-Adha, first day of winter and Kwanzaa all made the list. But no Christmas. "It was absolutely an error of omission," district spokeswoman Terren Roloff said. "In our efforts to be inclusive, we missed the obvious." The omission drew complaints from some parents that in an age of political correctness, Christians are being overlooked...

    Calendar question over star disc Some observers have likened the disc to a winking face Archaeologists have revived the debate over whether a spectacular Bronze Age disc from Germany is one of the earliest known calendars. The Nebra disc is emblazoned with symbols of the Sun, Moon and stars and said by some to be 3,600 years old. Writing in the journal Antiquity, a team casts doubt on the idea the disc was used by ancient astronomers as a precision tool for observing the sky. They instead argue that the disc was used for shamanistic rituals. But other archaeologists who...

    VATICAN CITY, APRIL 6, 2007 (Zenit.org).- It is likely that Jesus followed the calendar of the Essenes of Qumran, possibly explaining some contradictions within the Gospel accounts of the Passover, says Benedict XVI. The Pope made this observation Holy Thursday in his homily during the Mass of the Lord's Supper at the Basilica of St. John Lateran. In his address, the theologian commented on the historical investigations on the manuscripts of Qumran, found in the Dead Sea in 1947. "In the narrations of the Evangelists, there is an apparent contradiction between the Gospel of John, on one hand, and what,...

    SYROS, Greece, APRIL 2, 2007 (Zenit.org).- It is a motive of great joy for many Christians that the Catholic and Orthodox Churches will celebrate Easter on the same day this year, says Bishop Franghiskos Papamanolis. The Catholic Church, following the Gregorian calendar, normally celebrates Easter earlier than the Orthodox Church, which follows the Julian calendar. This year the two coincide with the celebration of Easter on April 8. Bishop Papamanolis, president of the Greek Catholic episcopal conference, told ZENIT that the Catholic community in the country normally celebrates Easter on the same day as the Orthodox Church. He said: "To...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio (CNS) – The gospel accounts of the Nativity (Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2) do not say what day Jesus was born. There were attempts to calculate the day, but by the third century Christians realized this was impossible.So they tried other ways to determine a date for Jesus' birth: - Many people believed the world was re-created on the first day of spring (March 25 of the Julian calendar followed in ancient Rome). How appropriate, then, for the world's redeemer to become incarnate that day! - Other scholars argued that Jesus became incarnate not at his birth but at...

Five women, ranging in age from 55 to 64, are posing for a 2006 calender. Retired flight attendant Connie Baker is the project's creator and one of the volunteer models. She hopes the calendar will raise some money for charity and some awareness about United's pension situation.

    CHICAGO - While some United Airlines employees are using placards and pamphlets to protest the loss of their pensions, a group of flight attendants is taking a more risque tack — showing some skin to publicize their plight. The five women, ranging in age from 55 to 64, posed for a 2006 calendar that depicts them in various states of undress in front of a vintage plane, on a park bench and on a plane's wing, among other locations. Reflecting a mix of humor and anger, it was released to coincide with a bankruptcy court's approval this week of United's...

    April Fool's Day is one of the most light hearted days of the year, yet it stems from a serious subject—the adoption of a new calendar. A Traditional New Year's Ancient cultures, including those as varied as the Romans and the Hindus, celebrated New Year's Day on April 1. It closely follows the vernal equinox (March 20th or March 21st.) In medieval times, much of Europe celebrated March 25, the Feast of Annunciation, as the beginning of the new year. In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII ordered a new calendar (the Gregorian Calendar) to replace the old Julian Calendar. The new...

    Scientists Study Anasazi Calender Mar. 21, 2005 Ed Yeates reporting Don Smith, College of Eastern Utah, San Juan branch: "I think we're becoming more aware that those people were far more familiar with astronomy, science and possibly math than we give them credit for." In a secluded ravine near Blanding, scientists and researchers gather to watch mysterious images forming right before their eyes. Although the rite of Spring, at least on our calendar, slipped in here yesterday almost unnoticed, it's literally in your face in this strange little canyon. We arrived weeks before spring equinox because people studying this place...

    OK, I am in a new job. For some reason, they don't use outlook here. They use ACT! and everybody shares the same calander. It if fine for scheduling business meetings, but I am used to haveing my own Outlook, and filling up my Calander with various things like "Call jim back", or "remember to call mom", or "follow up with Fred" and I don't want to fill up the corporate calander with all my stuff. It's really annoying. Is there any good calander/scheduler ont the net that anyone can reccomend? Does Mozilla have one? Thanks

    BOSTON -- I'll never get to relay my appreciation properly to Pope Gregory XIII. It's not entirely my fault: He died on April 10, 1585. Not to mention, communication between the Baby Boomers and Gen Xers is tough enough with only a couple of generations separating them, never mind the 21 generations between Pope Gregory and me. Still, this year I'd like to reach out through the gauzy haze of the netherworld is to thank him for the gift he sent me this week (inadvertently, I'm sure): A second Christmas. I'm not complaining: Christmas was great this year. My first...

    Christmas is over - well nearly, it ends tomorrow on Jan 5th (Twelth Night) and this Christmas season we have seen an unprecedented attempt to stamp it out by the secularists and the left wing loonies. People have been cowered into not saying "Merry Christsmas" for fear of offending minorities who don't celebrate Christmas, so the question I ask is - why is no one offended by "Happy New Year"? A fifth of the world's population are Chinese -it's not their New Year! There are more Jews in in New York than in Israel -it's not their New Year either!...
