    Last weekend, employees of the Warren County Democratic Party headquarters showed up to work to find quite a shit show — literally. Saturday, Democratic Party Chairwoman Bethe Goldenfield posted a picture to Facebook showing a large pile of manure that had been dumped outside the Democratic Party headquarters in Warren County Ohio. In the post, Goldenfield condemned the dumping, asking, “What reasonable person thinks this is OK????” Warren County Lt. John Faine identified James Pinell as the perpetrator. Pinell was arrested Monday after a video showed footage of his truck dumping the manure. Pinell was charged with one count of...

    Last week, the FDA announced it would investigate the use of manure and other biological matter. Manure is animal poop. Rich in nutrients, it's been used by farmers as fertilizer for thousands of years. But the agency is skeptical of the safety of the practice. "The FDA is planning to conduct a risk assessment to determine how much consumer health is put at risk by the use of raw manure as fertilizer in growing crops covered by the final [Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)] Produce Safety rule, and what can be done to help prevent people from getting sick," the...

    PORTLAND, Ore. - This coffee can cost as much as $700 a pound and $80 a cup, and it is processed through the digestive system of a cat. It's said to be the most expensive coffee in the world and it was served up Friday at the International Coffee Expo in Northeast Portland. An Indonesian company brews it here as it is done in cafes in Jakarta.  "It is very delicious, very smooth and so luxurious," said Valerie Sindal, director of sales and marketing for ValBeMar Specialty Coffee. Coffee cherries are eaten by Civet cats, processed through their digestive...

    BBC ^ | June 15, 2015
    Finland's government wants the country to turn away from fossil fuels and look towards horse manure to heat its homes instead, it's reported. The new coalition's manifesto sets out plans for the large-scale use of horse dung as a renewable source of energy, the national broadcaster Yle reports. One energy company is already trying out a biofuel made by mixing horse manure with a wood-based litter, which is then burned to create power. The Fortum group says the annual waste created by three horses would be enough to heat a family home for a year. And with about 77,000 horses...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. federal court has ruled for the first time that manure from livestock facilities can be regulated as solid waste, a decision hailed by environmentalists as opening the door to potential legal challenges against facilities across the country. A large dairy in Washington state, Cow Palace Dairy, polluted ground water by over applying manure to soil, ruled Judge Thomas Rice of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Washington on Wednesday. "The practices of this mega-dairy are no different than thousands of others across the country," said Jessica Culpepper, an attorney at Public Justice,...

    Almost six years after the passage of the stimulus package, taxpayer dollars have finally found their way into a shovel ready project: $60,000 to haul horse manure. Sold as an opportunity to bring America into the “21st century,” the Recovery and Reinvestment Act, commonly known as the stimulus, is now being used to remove wild horse manure off of public lands.

    Michael Jordan was interviewed by Ahmad Rashad recently about who his dream foursome would entail (if he was included in the four) and President Obama isn't getting an invite. "I've never played with Obama but I would," said Jordan. "But no, that's okay, I'd take him out. He's a hack, it would be all day playing with him. "Don't worry about it," said Jordan. "I never said he wasn't a great politician, I'm just saying he's a sh---- golfer."
  • Manure used by Europe's first farmers 8,000 years ago

    07/16/2013 1:24:39 PM PDT · by Renfield · 20 replies
    A new study says Europe's first farmers used far more sophisticated practices than was previously thought. A research team led by the University of Oxford has found that Neolithic farmers manured and watered their crops as early as 6,000 BC. It had always been assumed that manure wasn't used as a fertiliser until Iron Age and Roman times. However, this new research shows that enriched levels of nitrogen-15, a stable isotope abundant in manure, have been found in the charred cereal grains and pulse seeds taken from 13 Neolithic sites around Europe. The findings are published in the early edition...

(Mainichi) FUKUSHIMA -- Two months after a government ban on beef was lifted, cattle farmers here are growing increasingly desperate as nearby vegetable farmers have halted production due to the ongoing nuclear disaster, leaving nowhere to take the accumulating manure that was previously used as fertilizer.

    Traffic jams stink. Especially when they are caused by manure. Howard County highway crews had to hold their breath while they hustled to clean up a manure spill that stretched 1.5 miles on Sunday. The spill stretched from Main Street in Ellicot City to Frederick Road in Baltimore County. Howard County Fire Battalion Chief Eric D. Proctor tells the BaltimoreSun that crews spent nearly three hours cleaning up the liquid manure. The spill prompted street closures while crews cleaned the pavement. Investigators said they are still searching for the source of the manure. A worker at an Ellicot City wine...

    The Capitol – especially during the last, hectic days of any legislative session – is a bottom-line kind of place. Its occupants, whether legislators or lobbyists, are entirely focused on passing, defeating or amending bills. They respect those most adept at pulling legislative levers to reach their goals, and disdain those who complain about process. They practice, in other words, the adage attributed to Otto von Bismarck that "laws are like sausages; it's better not to see them being made." One doesn't have to be naive or squeamish, however, to be appalled at how the Legislature ignores its own rules...
