    The world is approching the ultimate crunch. The selfcentered mind made world created by human nature cannot survive the divine spirits of love truth and life. Self active human nature is filled with the spirits of hate, lies and death. These ill spirits are clearly displayed by the Islamo-Marxist-Chicago Gangster occupying the White House. The vessels dedicated to serving these ill spirits must pass away. We are in the third year after the inaugeration of Obama. This correlates to the third horse in the book of Revelation. In Revelation the black horse reveals famine and rationing. We see this before...

What are you those gems that are worth watching again? How about that obscure movie that you tell people they should watch? Bonus points for links, pics or video of the movie you are talking about. I'll start; Firefly - The complete series. Nothing like a good old fashioned cowboys in space series.  Excellent cast, tight writing and a fan demanded ending.  Highly recommended. Zombieland Guns, zombies and jokes.  What more can...

A wheel of Le Brouere cheese was the secret cargo aboard the SpaceX Dragon, the first commercial spacecraft to be recovered from Earth orbit, the company revealed Thursday. SpaceX co-founder Elon Musk hinted at the cargo after the capsule's successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean on Wednesday afternoon, suggesting it had something to do with the British comedy troupe Monty Python.

    The Irish government has risked fomenting revolution by trying to solve the country's dire economic problems by handing out a free block of cheese to every family Brendan Smith, the agriculture minister, announced yesterday that the government would use European Union funding to buy 53 tonnes of fresh Irish cheddar and distribute it for free from 15 November. But Irish citizens responded angrily to the plan, which was likened to the "Let them eat cake" comment by Marie Antoinette that provoked the French revolution. The cheese will be distributed via collection centres in towns and cities across Ireland. Mr Smith...

    REPUBLICANS SAY their midterm election victory shows that the American people want to shrink the federal government and make it smarter. If that's true, and if the new GOP majority in the House wants to deliver on its promises, we can think of no better place to start than Dairy Management. This little-known appendage of the Agriculture Department exists for one purpose: to encourage Americans to drink more milk and eat more cheese, so dairy farmers can make more money. This is not our idea of an urgent national priority. To the contrary, annual cheese consumption in the U.S. has...

    The U.S. government is in the position of convincing Americans to eat more cheese while trying to fight obesity at the same time, observers say. Dairy Management is a marketing creation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, helping companies such as Domino's Pizza and Taco Bell promote and sell more cheese, while the USDA is also responsible for a federal anti-obesity campaign aimed at discouraging Americans from eating obesity-causing foods -- like cheese, the food Dairy Management is vigorously promoting, The New York Times reported Sunday. Government warnings about saturated fat have pushed Americans to low-fat milk for decades, creating...

    CROOKSTON, Minn. — A moose is dead after being struck by two sports utility vehicles in northwestern Minnesota. The State Patrol says an SUV pulling a boat hit the moose "square on" shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday east of Crookston. The SUV rolled in the ditch, and the moose came to rest in the northbound lane. The moose was then hit by a second SUV, which also went off the road. The Crookston Daily Times reports both drivers and their passengers were wearing seat belts and apparently were not hurt. The patrol says the moose was killed when it was...

The most startling thing they found? Your score on a very basic kindergarten test is a HUGE predictor. Other educational factors like class size and the quality of your teachers aren't nearly as important. Given the renewed interest in educational policy in America right now, it's fascinating.

    It's seen as a sign of getting old, but scientists have discovered that arthritis is not just a human problem as a study lasting 50 years reveals how moose suffer from an identical form of the condition. The research, published in Ecology Letters, also casts new light on how malnutrition early in life can lead to the disorder in both moose and humans. The study, which began in 1958, was carried out on Isle Royale, a wilderness island National Park in lake superior, with only one large predator, the wolf and one large prey species, the moose. The research has...

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Eating dairy foods could help protect your heart, new research from Sweden suggests. Dairy foods are a major source of saturated fat in the diet, which has been associated with heart disease. However, there's some evidence that dairy foods could actually benefit heart health, for example by lowering blood pressure or reducing cholesterol levels, Dr. Eva Warensjo of Uppsala University and her colleagues note in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. To get a clearer sense of people's intake of fat from dairy and heart disease risk, Warensjo and her team measured blood levels of...

In February, the number of employees voluntarily quitting surpassed the number being fired or discharged for the first time since October 2008, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Before February, the BLS had recorded more layoffs than resignations for 15 straight months, the first such streak since the bureau started tracking the data a decade ago. Since the BLS began tracking the data, the average number of people voluntarily leaving their jobs...

Judges on Thursday lauded the hard cheese for its creamy texture and light hint of herbs. The cheese took top honors at the 2010 World Championship Cheese Contest. It's made by Cedric Fragniere, of Kirchberg, Switzerland. The runner-up was also Swiss. It's a smear-ripened hard cheese made by Andeer Sennerei. Third place went to Alois Pesendorfer, of Gmunden, Austria. This year's contest featured some 2,300 entries from 20 countries.
