    Saudi Arabian authorities have detained an Indian national for posting a controversial photo of Mecca's Grand Mosque juxtaposed with Hindu religious symbols on Facebook. The photo depicts Al Masjid Al Haram mosque as a temple, photoshopped with Hindu symbols over the Kaaba, the holy building at the centre of the mosque, according to Gulf News, which cited a local daily's report on Tuesday.  A Saudi citizen who saw the post brought it to the notice of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, the kingdom's religious police.

  • Washington: Two Anti-Gun Bills Stopped in Legislature

    nraila.org ^ | Mar. 3, 2015
    Last week, thanks to members’ calls, two egregious anti-gun bills, House Bill 1131 and House Bill 1857, died at cut-off. As previously reported, HB 1131, sponsored by Representative Eric Pettigrew (D-37), would have criminalized the sale or transfer of legally purchased ivory and ivory products, including firearms, knives and other collectible items. HB 1131 was introduced with the supposed intent of curbing poaching and helping to end the illegal ivory trade. Unfortunately, this bill would not have accomplished either of those purported objectives. Also previously reported, HB 1857, sponsored by Representative Laurie Jinkins (D-27), would have allowed a family member,...

    Everyone in Washington is talking about Hillary Clinton's use of a personal e-mail account during her four years as secretary of State and her homebrew computer server. Everyone, that is, except for many Senate Democrats. As operatives, strategists and opposition research groups rush to her defense, some Washington Senate Democrats are remaining silent for the moment, saying they've been too busy with the week's packed schedule to be fully briefed on the crisis du jour. Democrats have a difficult line to walk. They don't want to be seen hitting their strongest contender to keep the White House, but that does...

    Anyone who’s ever seen two dogs interacting with each other knows they love sniffing each other’s butts. Why? Because their powerful noses are able to pick up loads of information, including the other dog’s gender, diet, and emotional state. Dogs aren’t the only ones to behave this way; rats and primates do as well, including humans, according to a new study. And when it comes to the way we do it, you may have never even noticed it. The study, from researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, found that many of us sniff our hands after a...

On the screen we see x-ray-style skeletons hugging, kissing and dancing. Then, the "skeletons" move from behind the screen to reveal their physical forms. When they step out, we see everything from couples of different races, to a child with a disability, to same-sex families.

    Mount Everest has a feces problem. Each year, hundreds of people attempt to climb the world's tallest mountain, spending weeks at four camps en route to adjust to the low levels of oxygen in the air. It's now estimated that they leave behind up to 26,500 pounds of excrement annually — and it's getting to the point where the pits of poop and urine surrounding these camps are becoming a serious environmental and health problem. "It is a health hazard and the issue needs to be addressed," Dawa Steven Sherpa, an Everest expedition leader since 2008, told the AP Tuesday....

The guidelines, released Wednesday after a year of consultations, are focused on the added sugars in processed food and those in honey, syrups and fruit juices. The advice does not apply to naturally occurring sugars in fruits, vegetables and milk. "We have solid evidence that keeping intake of (added) sugars...

    There are countless television shows that far outstayed their welcome, becoming almost unwatchable self-parodies by the end. The Drew Carey Show, The Office, and Scrubs are three extreme examples of this phenomenon. As series drag on, show fans become show writers and what ends up happening is effectively fanfic on screen. It’s why The Simpsons still makes the same jokes again and again. Parks and Recreation isn’t unwatchable yet, but boy is it close. This is a shame. While the series was never great, it was still one of the most consistent sitcoms of the last decade. All the characters...
