One observatory staff member who weathered the storm in the town of Arecibo contacted the association via shortwave...

Old San Juan is still there, the beaches are still there. The Rainforest will restore itself after many years of overgrowth. We will be back real soon. JUST SEND ICE!

    Maria von Trapp, whose family's story was told in The Sound of Music, has died. She was the last surviving member of the musical family of seven brothers and sisters and passed away in her sleep at home in Vermont at the age of 99 on Tuesday, PEOPLE confirms. Von Trapp, who was the second-eldest daughter, and her family fled their home in Austria to escape from the Nazis in the 1930s and eventually ended up in the U.S., where their story inspired a Rodgers & Hammerstein musical and the popular 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews.

    It turns out that with the newfound fame as international human rights spokespersons, Maria Alyokhhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova have alienated their former musical group members, who now feel the pair have strayed from the movement's original goals. Six of the members of the Russian punk rock group known as Pussy Riot have decided to write a letter stating that they may no longer be listed as members of their group. In the letter, the collective accuses the two former members of no longer meeting up to the "aspirations and ideals of [the] group." The two newly disenfranchised members had performed...

    DNA confirms that a child found by police in a Gypsy encampment in central Greece is the daughter of a Bulgarian migrant, who says she gave up her baby because she could not afford to care for her. Sasha Ruseva, a 35-year-old Bulgarian Gypsy, or Roma, said she gave birth to the girl, called Maria, four years ago while working as an olive picker in Greece. The girl was found last week during a crackdown by Greek authorities on Gypsy settlements. Authorities became suspicious of the couple who claimed to be her parents, because of the girl's blonde hair and...

    NOTE: I heard this clown on the radio today. Yes, it should be investigated when a public official uses state resources for his liaisons. But what of Bill Clinton? Where were the Dems regarding him? To review, Clinton used troopers on regular and overtime pay to hustle women. He gave jobs for sex. He accepted bribes to put people on state commissions (which he denied during the criminal trial of Branscum and Hill - that was perjury in a criminal trial.) On the clock, troopers delivered Christmas presents to Danny Williams. On the clock, LD Brown drove him to see...
