    Several days ago, we looked at the big picture of US immigration, presenting the place of origin of America's 40 million foreign-born residents. However, as is always the case with the US, focusing on the big picture at the national level ignores the nuances at the state level. The following two charts using Pew Research data, compiled by the WaPo, show the dramatic changes in the land of origin of US immigrants, beginning with 1910 when Germany was the primary driver of US-born residents, accounting for 18% of US immigrants, and proceeding through 2010, when Mexico has become the...

    GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) - A panicking cow killed a Palestinian man who was trying to slaughter the beast on Saturday during the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha, a Gaza health official said. Muslims around the world slaughter sheep, cows and goats during the four-day holiday that began Friday to commemorate the sacrifice by their Prophet Ibrahim - known to Christians and Jews as Abraham. (And who actually was tested to see if he would sacrifice his heir Isaac, not Ishmael as the muslims falsely claim) ...snip...But accidents are common as people frequently buy animals to slaughter at home...
  • A stunner: State GOP wins both House and Senate

    11/03/2010 5:42:21 AM PDT · by grey_whiskers · 22 replies
    For the first time in more than a generation the GOP swept to control of both houses of the Minnesota Legislature. In a stunning victory, Republicans swept into the majority in the Minnesota Senate for the first time in more than a generation and by early Wednesday had followed that by also taking control of the House. The dual victories left many of the state's top DFLers speechless, and erased months of optimistic projections that the party would buck a nationwide trend toward Republicans. Even Republicans, who gained confidence with each passing hour as key races broke their way, said...
  • Nutter proposes 2-cent-per-ounce sweet-drink tax - (Philly mayor)

    Philly Inquirer ^ | 3/4/10 | Jeff Shields
    Mayor Nutter wants to treat the city's weight and wallet problems in his 2010-11 budget with the same remedy: the nation's highest tax on all sweetened beverages including soda, energy drinks, ice tea, even chocolate milk. Nutter's plan would put Philadelphia at the front of the movement to tax sweet drinks, an effort that the beverage industry already opposes and that could encounter resistance in City Council. The tax rate would be 2 cents per ounce, 40 cents on a 20-ounce bottle of soda.
  • Proof that women's chests really are a man's 'first fixation'

    Women have long complained that their faces are often the last thing men look at – and now a scientific study has proved them right. Researchers found that virtually half – 47 per cent – of men first glance at a woman’s chest. A third of the so-called ‘first fixations’ are on the waist and hips, while fewer than 20 per cent look at the face. Not only are breasts often the first thing men look at, they also glance at them for longer than any other body part, the experts discovered. It’s thought that the reason might be evolutionary,...

    DEDHAM – The haggard-looking former Hull High School principal who was set to do a stint this summer as a camp swim instructor was ordered held on $10,000 cash bail this morning after authorities say they found thousands of images of child pornography on his computer.

    A bank robber in suburban Chicago is being called the "Harry Caray bandit." Police in Palos Heights say the man who robbed a bank on Wednesday wore big glasses reminiscent of the ones worn by the late Chicago Cubs announcer. He also sported a baseball cap, perhaps a wig, shoes like police officers wear, and a patch that said "Emergency" on one sleeve.

    CAIRO -- Thousands of people flocked to southern Egypt on Monday to seek blessing from a calf that they believe was born as God's reply to the publication in Europe of cartoons depicting the Prophet, police said. Some 20,000 thousand people had gathered in front of Mohammed Abu Dif's house in the village of Tunis to see the holy mammal, whose skin folds when he was born reportedly formed the words "There is no God but Allah", a police official said on condition of anonymity. He said that the villagers flocked from all over the southern governorate of Sohag to...

    If you are Hindu and believe cows are especially holy, should you be able to have cows on your property? How about if that property is a house and yard on Main Street in a rural village? "In this circumstance, it's ridiculous not to allow animals," says Linda Voith of the Allegany County Village of Angelica. She and her husband Stephen practice the Hindu religion and believe it is their right to keep cows on their property and in their house. For several years, they boarded six cows at a nearby beef farm but occasionally brought them to their home...

    SOQUEL, Calif. - A prized bull died after being shot in the neck with a metal arrow in an unsolved late-night attack, according to the bull's owner. Norm Bei, who owns a Santa Cruz real estate firm, said he's offering a $5,000 reward for the arrest and prosecution of the person who used a bow and arrow to kill the Watusi bull. Known as the "cattle of kings," Ankole-Watusi bulls first appeared about 6,000 years ago and were considered sacred by some African tribes, according to the Ankole Watusi International Registry. Bei said his bull, which he bought a decade...

    LONDON, June 30 (UPI) -- Only 1 percent of overweight women in a British survey said they are happy with their shape, blaming the celebrity culture for their attitude. Of the 4,000 overweight women questioned by the National Slimming Survey, 83 percent said they suffered from deep "self-loathing". Some 91 percent felt depressed and 79 percent said they felt "utter despair." Two-thirds of overweight women said they have felt like "life is not worth living," Sky News reported. The survey also said 74 percent admitted to hiding food in their bedroom, car, garage or garden. About half of respondents removed...

    NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (AP) — A 63-year-old man is charged with sexual gratification with an animal for allegedly having sex with calves. Harold G. Hart, of Neillsville, allegedly told police that he routinely stopped at a Greenwood farm, usually after bar closing or on trips to strip clubs near Marshfield or Neillsville. A criminal complaint filed in Clark County Circuit Court said the farm's owners installed a motion detector on Jan. 22 after regularly seeing footprints and vehicle tracks on their land. Around 4 a.m. the next morning, a sensor sounded and Hart was caught leaving the barn, but Hart allegedly...

    Two years ago, PETA got a rise out of everyone from dairy farmers to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) with its tongue-in-cheek advisory to college kids that ounce for ounce, beer packs more nutrition than milk. Now, a new Harvard study has topped off the debate with damning words about dairy products and a raised-glass salute to beer. The debate is about to spill over onto school campuses once again. When PETA pulled its “Got Beer?” Campaign because of public outcry, the uproar from college students was deafening. Most felt that PETA was caving in to members of the older...
