  • Welcome to the Bush-Obama White House: They're Spying on Us [Media Blaming BUSH!]

    National Journal ^ | 6/6/13 | Ron Fournier
    Welcome to the era of Bush-Obama, a 16-year span of U.S. history that will be remembered for an unprecedented erosion of civil liberties and a disregard for transparency. On the war against a tactic—terrorism—and its insidious fallout, the United States could have skipped the 2008 election. It made little difference. Despite his clear and popular promises to the contrary, President Obama has not shifted the balance between security and freedom to a more natural state—one not blinded by worst fears and tarred by power grabs.

    When dung beetles roll their tiny balls of poop across the sands of South Africa on a moonless night, they look to the glow of our Milky Way galaxy as a navigational aid, researchers report. "Even on clear, moonless nights, many dung beetles still manage to orientate along straight paths," Marie Dacke, a biologist at Sweden's Lund University, said in a news release. "This led us to suspect that the beetles exploit the starry sky for orientation — a feat that had, to our knowledge, never before been demonstrated in an insect."

    Clyburn: 'Elephant dung all over the place' House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) today repeated his earlier suspicions that the Democrat’s Senate candidate in South Carolina might have been a “plant.” “I believe he’s someone’s plant,” Clyburn said this morning on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I saw in the Democratic primary elephant dung all over the place.” Clyburn has called on state officials to investigate how Alvin Greene won the Senate primary last week. Greene, who was essentially unknown before Tuesday’s primary, is unemployed and is allegedly facing felony charges for showing pornographic images to a college student. Clyburn...
  • Female Dung Beetles Evolved Elaborate Horns to Fight for the Choicest Poop

    Male animals often use their horns to fight over females, but at least one species’ females use their horns to fight over excrement. The species, no surprise, is the dung beetle. Unlike many of the animals we usually associate with elaborate horns, antlers, or other head weaponry—in which the male has the most impressive set—dung beetle females have horns that put the male version to shame.

    Pounded and strained by heavy traffic and weakened by missing bolts and cracking steel, the failed interstate bridge over the Mississippi River also faced a less obvious enemy: pigeons. Inspectors began documenting the buildup of pigeon dung on the span near downtown Minneapolis two decades ago. Experts say the corrosive guano deposited all over the Interstate 35W span's framework helped the steel beams rust faster...

That's just as well, because they would be aghast at LiveEarth's bizarre message. In Africa, we have much more serious things to worry about than climate change. Indeed, if they achieve their objective the concerts will have done harm to the people of Africa....

    MEAD, Nebraska (Reuters) - The frosty-breathed cattle jostling for position at a feeding trough in rural Nebraska are not quite as typical as they appear: their manure is being captured in a new bid to quench America's thirst for ethanol. Like other cows in the Midwestern landscape, the animals at the Mead plant, part of an experimental scheme dubbed "Genesis", churn out a steady supply of energy-rich excrement each day. But these 27,000 cattle stand on slatted floors to deposit an estimated 1.6 million pounds (726,000 kg) of dung daily into deep pits, which are located adjacent to a new...

    Scientists have run high-tech tests on harmful bacteria in local rivers and streams and found that the majority of the germs in the Potomac and Anacostia rivers come from wildlife dung. The finding has put the Environmental Protection Agency in a quandary. “I was out in a wilderness area last week,” said EPA Public Information Officer Forest Greene. “Everywhere I looked there was dirt, debris, and decaying vegetation. I ruined a good pair of shoes stepping in some animal’s dung. These creatures are fouling their own nest, so to speak. This really throws a monkey wrench into our perspective on...

    SEATTLE (AP) — The Association of Trial Lawyers of America voted during its convention this week to change its name to the American Association for Justice. Spokeswoman Chris Mather said there was overwhelming support for the change, and that the new name "reflects whose side we're on in the fight for justice." The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, a critic of the trial lawyers group, called it "an astounding admission of the unpopularity of trial lawyers in America." The 60-year-old association has 65,000 members.

    Japanese Make Gasoline From Cattle Dung By KOZO MIZOGUCHI, Associated Press WriterFri Mar 3, 7:57 AM ET Scientists in energy-poor Japan said Friday they have found a new source of gasoline — cattle dung. Sakae Shibusawa, an agriculture engineering professor at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, said his team has successfully extracted 1.4 milliliters (0.042 ounces) of gasoline from every 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of cow dung by applying high pressure and heat. "The new technology will be a boon for livestock breeders" to reduce the burden of disposing of large amounts of waste, Shibusawa said. About 500,000...

    Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature US flags into piles of dog poo in public parks. Josef Oettl, parks administrator for Bayreuth, said: "This has been going on for about a year now, and there must be 2,000 to 3,000 piles of excrement that have been claimed during that time." The series of incidents was originally thought to be some sort of protest against the US-led invasion of Iraq. And then when it continued it was thought to be a protest against President George W. Bush's campaign for re-election. But it is still going on...

    Education authorities in southern India have suspended a teacher for forcing his students to eat cow dung. It's believed the teacher imposed the punishment because pupils laughed when he fell off a chair while sleeping in the classroom. The teacher, Basavarajappa, has been accused of ordering a student to bring cow dung into the classroom and making his colleagues eat it - four times. Parents made complaints to the management of the government school at Arundi after the children refused to attend classes. When the school management apparently failed to act on the complaints, the parents took the matter to...

Although much of the area was dry more than 50,000 years ago, firm archaeological evidence of human...

    Out on the African savanna, a fresh and moist pile of fine-grained antelope dung is a nutritious treasure aggressively fought over by a melee of critters. The spoils go to those with the craftiest strategies to snatch and stash a piece of the pie. To gain an edge in this battle for the poop, the African dung beetle Scarabaeus zambesianus orients itself by the polarized light pattern cast by the moon to make a straight, nighttime escape with its morsel, according to Marie Dacke, a biologist at the University of Lund in Sweden. "There are so many beetles at the...
