  • Wild Hogs Roam Streets, Scare People Near Atlanta

    09/24/2013 1:38:54 PM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 75 replies
    Police have enlisted the help of a trapper to round up a group of feral hogs scaring residents of a subdivision in suburban Atlanta. Some parents fear sending their children to a school bus stop in the Lithonia area, where up to four of the hogs are roaming the streets and eating trash in front yards. Authorities hope the hogs can be trapped in cages by Wednesday morning, DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said. “They’re causing quite a stir to say the least,” Parish said shortly before noon Tuesday, as she headed out to the neighborhood, about 17 miles...

    STAFFORD, Va. — Just outside the gates of the storied Quantico Marine Base, George Allen, the Republican nominee for a Senate seat from Virginia, sat down in the offices of a moving van company with more than a dozen defense contractors from his state last Monday to listen to them fret over government spending cuts. Scott Hirons’s small software firm will probably have to shrink to five employees from 15 by the end of October if nothing is done to head off automatic, across-the-board defense cuts, he said. The cuts will not begin until January, if ever, but the threat...

    May 2009. Back then there were 3,010 retirees earning $100,000 or more annually from CalSTRS. Earlier this month, the foundation obtained updated data from CalSTRS and the number has grown to 5,308 (5,309 if you count one woman earning $99,998.88). That’s a 76 percent increase. In less than two years. And that’s not all. The foundation, run by President Marcia Fritz, also requested a list of CalSTRS retirees earning $75,000 or more annually. Guess how many CalSTRS pensioners are earning between $75,000 and $99,999.99. 19,503. Combined you’re looking at 24,811 retired California teachers earning more than $75,000.

    MIDDLEBURY (IN) -- Days after its disappearance, the decorative pig outside Old Hoosier Meats has not yet returned. Owner Randy Grewe had placed the pig, made of pink wire and covered in red and white lights, outside the smokehouse and butcher shop before Thanksgiving. When he returned to work Monday after the New Year's weekend, it was gone. As Grewe walked to his front door, he found a laminated note on his doorstep, letters from magazines and newspapers pieced together to form the message: "Here is your ransom demand. The pig is safe and you will receive a list...

"I believe in an America that says you have the right to worship whatever God you have, wherever you want to worship. "And I believe in...

Department of Natural Resources wildlife manager Tom Kucera says a landowner shot the pig Tuesday morning after it had harassed her horses. Kucera says the pig weighed about 80 pounds and likely had been someone's pet.

OiNK distributed albums often weeks ahead of their official release date. More than 60 major album releases had been leaked onto the Internet so far this year. The site had an estimated membership of 180,000. People were only invited to become members if they could prove they had music to offer and had to keep posting tracks to maintain their membership. It is alleged the site was operated by a 24-year-old man who lived near Middlesbrough in north-east England....

    Tucked away on Seattle's Portage Bay, a sleek, 85-foot speedboat sat idle for years — save for an annual jaunt to maintain its engine. The Navy paid $4.5 million to build the boat. But months before the hull ever touched water, the Navy gave the boat to the University of Washington. The school never found a use for it, either. Why would the Navy waste taxpayer dollars on a boat that nobody wanted? Blame it on Sen. Patty Murray and Congressmen Norm Dicks and Brian Baird. All three exercised their political muscle to slip language into a 2002 spending bill...

    Most experienced voters learn not to take politicians' campaign promises too seriously. But it takes an abundance of political gall for a high-ranking elected official to deny that his party even made a high-profile promise in the first place. Such was the recent case when Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, wrote in an op-ed in The New York Times: "Democrats never promised to eliminate earmarks. We promised to reform them." Judge the semantics debate for yourself: In July 2006, then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., offered this blanket condemnation of earmarks to The Wall Street...

    Political Excess: Behind Nancy Pelosi's four days of revelry celebrating her speakership is a carefully crafted purpose. But if her background is any indication, all that public relations may end up backfiring. On one day, a street will be named after her in Little Italy in Baltimore, where her father served as mayor. On another, Tony Bennett will serenade her at an Italian Embassy banquet with "I Left My Heart in San Francisco." The Italian motif is apt, because the bacchanalia taking up most of next week in Washington will be a lot like the Roman Empire's legions marching into...

Pigs' hearts closely resemble those in humans, making them a useful model in such research. Following up on previous studies, Hopkins cardiologists used a thin tube to extract samples of heart tissue no bigger than a grain of rice within hours of the animals' heart attacks, then grew large numbers of cardiac stem cells in the lab...

Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, who strongly supports America's invasion of Iraq, said he never agreed to be in the 2004 movie, which trashes President Bush.

    It must have been a gruesome sight: the elite of the Cannes film festival applauding someone even more self-regarding than themselves. Michael Moore, portly archpriest of the anti-Bush cult, premiered his film Fahrenheit 9/11 at the festival this week. The American documentary-maker sent three undercover film crews to Iraq; they returned with footage - included in the film - claiming to show US soldiers abusing Iraqi prisoners. If such abuse occurred, then it should be condemned. But no one should rush to judgment on the basis of allegations emanating from Mr Moore. Many of the claims made in Bowling for...

    Milk and urine of genetically engineered pigs will be sources of high-priced medicine for thrombosis, or blood clotting, which can result in a stroke or heart attack. With the technology, South Korea has become the world’s second nation to extract the medicine from livestock, following the United States. The Rural Development Administration (RDA) said on Monday that it created five pigs containing human tPA (tissue plasminogen activator), a natural gene preventing thrombosis. When blood clots in a vein or artery it hinders the supply of oxygen and nutrition to an area of the body. The RDA said it created the...

    Scientists at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech are trying to clone cattle that are genetically incapable of developing mad cow disease, according to a report. A calf that is "mad cow resistant" could be born as early as next year, but proving that the clones are immune to the deadly infection could take years, scientists said. The research reportedly builds on previous studies that engineered mice resistant to a disease caused by misshapen prions, the naturally occurring proteins that cause bovine spongiform encephalopathy and several other brain-destroying infections, according to a press release. Proteins are...

    Shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday, the call came in to the Fort Myers police. Officer John Harrington radioed dispatchers about shots fired in the Fort Myers High cafeteria. The nightmare for every parent, teacher and student had begun: A madman with a gun was loose inside the school. Luckily, this nightmare was only make believe. It was real-life training for police and teachers in case a Columbine-type attack occurs in Fort Myers. The training at the school is the first of its kind for them. “I thought about what I would tell a roomful of students,” said geometry teacher Janeen...
