    A possible alternate title for at least one of the editions of the new season of Sportsman Channel’s Amazing America with Sarah Palin could be “A Whole Lotta Huntin’ Goin’ On.” Gun rights advocates will be happy to learn that legendary rocker Ted Nugent joins the former Alaska governor. Nugent, a tireless constitutional rights advocate, is a member of the National Bowhunters Hall of Fame and, like Palin, an outspoken defender of our Second Amendment. Season two of the program begins on January 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Twelve new episodes are on the schedule with Nugent’s appearance slated for...

    Whale-watchers have spotted the species in the Atlantic within a mile of the Rockaway peninsula, part of New York's borough of Queens. This year alone, 106 humpbacks have been spotted - and experts say there are at least 19 different kinds. Naturalists are questioning why these much-loved creatures have chosen to return to the city's shores, after whaling killed off many pods in the past. Mr Rosenbaum said the increase could be due to a basic shift in the whales' habits rather than a spike in population.

But what is a little more odd is when two deer get locked not by their antlers, but by something else. In the case of the video below, that “something else” was a nylon rope, and the two deer needed the help of a Texas game warden.

    Explanation: The scene might have been considered serene if it weren't for the tornado. During 2004 in Kansas, storm chaser Eric Nguyen photographed this budding twister in a different light -- the light of a rainbow. Featured here, a white tornado cloud descends from a dark storm cloud. The Sun, peeking through a clear patch of sky to the left, illuminates some buildings in the foreground. Sunlight reflects off raindrops to form a rainbow. By coincidence, the tornado appears to end right over the rainbow. Streaks in the image are hail being swept about by the high swirling winds.

    For some reason, I don’t find it surprising that Oregon is a hotbed of climate alarmism. Thus, when the Portland Tribune recently published an article describing how Oregon’s “warmer climate imperils our health,” it seemed appropriate to look further into the claims being made. Apparently, climate change in Oregon will lead to “less snow on Mount Hood? [but] we can live with that.” Interesting, given how there has been no significant trend in maximum overwinter snowpack on Mount Hood since records began in 1981. Indeed, according to an article in 2012 at ABC News Cleveland, snowpack in the Cascade Mountains...

    The Storm Glass was first invented in the mid 1700's, and soon made it's way into ships and harbors around Europe to help give warning of approaching bad weather. It gained the most fame through Admiral FitzRoy who used a Storm Glass on the voyage in which he and Darwin traveled to the Galápagos Islands. As such, the instrument is sometimes called a 'FitzRoy Storm Glass'. Due to the use of vodka rather than pure ethanol and water, the proportions I use to make the Storm Glass in my video breaks somewhat from the traditional ratios, but the recipe is...
