The billboard is 10 ft high and 20 ft. wide and is attached to a building just south of the US 50 bridge over the Colorado River on route to orchard mesa.

    I believe it's time, past time, to employ some of the tactics that are spewed at Conservatives on a steady basis. Romney bought out a company and he was called a murderer, a vampire, because some woman lost her health care coverage. Don't miss my point because I chose that one example. There are a million others. Including the Cruz effort regarding ACA implementation dealy, which was attacked viciously until the moment it became instrumental to the Dem agenda and became enacted by unConstitutional exec order. I have a simple question: Does anybody believe that by, say Dec 31, 2013,...

    Posted by Caroline Glick Jun 18th 2011 at 11:00 am in Iran, Israel, Middle East | Comments (46) Every day, major stories come out of the Middle East. And behind each of these stories are major developments that deserve of our attention and, more often than not, our intense concern. Just this week, major stories have come out of Syria, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Yemen and Pakistan that are all deeply disconcerting. In Syria, dictator Bashar Assad’s violent repression of the popular revolt against his tyrannical, minority regime has exposed the Syrian leader as a vicious murderer. While...

    The editor of this blog bought a wristwatch tonight at the last of Pasadena's old-line chain department stores, now under a different corporate name. The sales clerk, "Donna," and I struck up a conversation. Donna is from the United Kingdom and she says she originally migrated to the U.S. because things were more honest here. Interestingly, Donna related that she now works two jobs as she is occupationally displaced due to the financial meltdown. She now works as a retail sales manager in the jewelry department of a major department store and does part time consulting in risk management. Her...

Democrats, ya’ll thinkin’ for yourselves. I like that in you, but it’s time for us to make sure that we finish the job here, we are this close and we’ve got to be unified.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - First dog Bo is a "kind of crazy" puppy who likes to chew on people's feet, Michelle Obama told children visiting the White House on Thursday. The first lady is spending a lot of time walking and training the 6-month-old Portuguese water dog who became a member of the president's family last week. An energetic breed, Bo plays well into the night, as he did on Wednesday.

    Drug can help cut diabetes risk, say researchers By Nic Fleming, Medical Correspondent (Filed: 16/09/2006) A drug that improves the body's ability to turn sugars into fuel can substantially reduce the chances of people at risk of Type 2 diabetes developing the disease, according to research published yesterday. In a large international trial volunteers with "pre-diabetes" taking rosiglitazone, sold under the brand name Avandia, were 60 per cent less likely than those on placebos to develop the full disease. The drug, already prescribed to those with Type 2 diabetes, was also found to help patients return to normal blood sugar...

    Just as Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah admitted publicly that Israel's offensive against his terrorist army was taking its toll, some Muslims poured into their streets to stomp on Israeli and U.S. flags. U.N. diplomats and Western appeasers are busily trying to back Israel into an indefensible corner. But how would Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi stand on the current conflict? Gandhi called terrorists "murderers." MLK recognized the Jewish "religious and cultural commitment to justice." Just yesterday, Hezbollah leader Nasrallah: ...for the first time since fighting began 22 days ago, offered Thursday to stop rocket attacks on northern Israel in...

    Remember the Big Bad Wolf? He dressed up as Grandma, hoping to fool Little Red Riding Hood long enough to eat her. Well, that's the same tactic some liberal groups and Democrats are using these days in Washington, D.C., to get government control over the Internet: Dress up a bad idea in familiar and comforting words and hope the American public will be fooled. This very bad scheme is dressed up in the oh-so-sweet sounding notion of "net neutrality." Those who coined the "net neutrality" term are hoping the words will make the public, and especially lawmakers, believe it's a...

They found that and a whole lot more. Protruding from the canal bank at Dong Xa was a 2000-year-old log boat that had been used as a coffin. After a closer look at the woodwork, archaeologists Peter Bellwood and Judith Cameron of Australia National University in Canberra and their colleagues were astounded to find that the method for fitting planks to hull matched that...

    How babies do maths at 7 months Basic numerical ability predates speech Babies have a rudimentary grasp of maths long before they can walk or talk, according to new research. By the age of seven months infants have an abstract sense of numbers and are able to match the number of voices they hear with the number of faces they see. The research could be useful in devising methods for teaching basic maths skills to the very young, say researchers in the US. The study is published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Look and listen Adults can...
