  • Missing Quebec maple syrup found in New Brunswick

    10/03/2012 11:54:59 AM PDT · by Squawk 8888 · 36 replies
    Toronto Sun ^ | October 3, 2012
    A massive amount of maple syrup stolen from a Quebec warehouse last month has turned up in New Brunswick. Police say arrests are imminent after they found the syrup inside barrels at S.K. Export in Kedgwick, in northern New Brunswick near Quebec's Gaspe region. The RCMP and provincial police took part in the raids this week. The amount that was seized represents only a fraction of the 10,000-barrel, $20-million amount stolen in August. The warehouse that was targeted in Saint-Louis-de-Blandford, about 160 km northeast of Montreal, contained 16,000 45-gallon barrels of syrup. Police believe the robbers pumped the maple syrup...

    A computer-generated graph of similarities between 34 different painters, reflecting the similarities between the artistic styles of painters as were automatically deduced by the computer. Courtesy of Lior Shamir Understanding and evaluating art has widely been considered as a task meant for humans, until now. Computers tackled the question "can machines understand art?" The results were very surprising. In fact, an algorithm has been developed that demonstrates computers are able to "understand" art in a fashion very similar to how art historians perform their analysis, mimicking the perception of expert art critiques. In the experiment, published in the recent issue...

But because it's a Democrat - nary a peep. Imagine a Republican president when the countries credit rating was downgraded again during his term. The media would call for his immediate resignation. But because it's a Democrat, it's buried on the back pages if it is mentioned at all. Imagine a Republican president being caught covering up for Al Queda's murder of the Libyan Ambassador.

    BBC Sport ^ | 1st October 2012 | Tom Fordyce
    'Europe's golfers produced a stunning final-day comeback to win the Ryder Cup at a shell-shocked Medinah. With the United States requiring only four points from the 12 on offer, Europe somehow secured eight and a half to clinch a historic 14½-13½ win. Martin Kaymer sank a five-foot putt on the 18th green to get his team to the 14 points needed to retain the trophy, before a Tiger Woods bogey in the final match gifted them overall victory. The win matches the record recovery of Ben Crenshaw's US team in Boston in 1999 and is the best from a European...

    Consider these rather staggering numbers that turn Mustang into a hotter car than Shelby’s most potent chili. A total of 662 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 631 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm from an extensively modified and supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 tied to a six-speed manual transmission. I could go on for several paragraphs about the technical aspects of this car, down to “plasma transferred wire arc” coating (huh?) that protects the inner workings of the engine. How fast is it? Well, Ford’s F -1.60% Mustang Shelby GT500 will take you from a standing start to 60 mpg in the...

  • NFL supports decision to not overturn Seahawks’ touchdown

    In Monday's game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, Seattle faced a 4th-and-10 from the Green Bay 24 with eight seconds remaining in the game. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw a pass into the end zone. Several players, including Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings, jumped into the air in an attempt to catch the ball. While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground. This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game. It...

Craig Thomas, the writer of the show, is scripting the show as if this could be the end, however, writers are preparing to start working on season 9 as a backup plan. The reason for this potentially odd predicament is that CBS has not yet renewed the contract for a ninth season and is unsure if they want to.

Some now-forgotten problem consumed Meyer, and he told his secretary he didn't have time. He wasn't going. His beautiful, athletic,...

The incident, she says, punctuated an acrimonious relationship with Lynne Taylor of 51 Harris Ave. that she says included Taylor pelting rocks over the fence and threats to capture Melker's cat and "drown it in the Bay." No charges have been filed.
