  • 95% of plastic polluting world's oceans comes from just 10 rivers

    Up to 95 per cent of plastic polluting the world’s oceans pours in from just ten rivers, according to new research. The top 10 rivers – eight of which are in Asia – accounted for so much plastic because of the mismanagement of waste. About five trillion pounds is floating in the sea, and targeting the major sources – such as the Yangtze and the Ganges – could almost halve it, scientists claim. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt flew in coach-class seats on at least two trips home to Oklahoma when taxpayers weren’t footing the bill, despite claims he...

    I was attacked and censored on other forums for warning about Zika before anyone even heard of the term, now the illegal aliens and "child refugees" et all from the endemic zones have brought it to many parts of the US and spread it to local mosquito population because they were allowed in - actually invited and encouraged in - by the Obamanists, the Democrats, the cheap labor oligarchy of the Republican establishment, without health checks and firewalls across open borders. One in four in Puerto Rico will have Zika by election day in November this year which not only...

    ‘His views are against ours’ Ted Cruz came to New York Wednesday talking about education, but he’s the one who got schooled. The lesson came from a group of Bronx high school students who told the Republican presidential candidate to stay away. Cruz was scheduled to speak at Bronx Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy until students wrote a letter to the principal asking her not to let Cruz come, prompting staffers to cancel the appearance. "We told her if he came here, we would schedule a walkout," said Destiny Domeneck, 16. "Most of us are immigrants or come from immigrant backgrounds....

    Bowe Bergdahl arraigned in court martial at North Carolina Army base FORT BRAGG, N.C. – Wearing a dress blue uniform, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl faced a military judge Tuesday for the first time since the U.S. Army decided to proceed with a military trial that could result in a life sentence for his disappearance in Afghanistan in 2009. Bergdahl, who was held by the Taliban for five years after he walked off a base, was arraigned during a short hearing on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, a relatively rare charge that carries the severe punishment. If convicted of...

    The Huffington Post said on Friday it will no longer cover the presidential campaign of real estate mogul and former reality TV star Donald Trump as politics, but rather, as entertainment. "Our reason is simple: Trump's campaign is a sideshow," read a post bylined by the site's Washington bureau chief Ryan Grim and editorial director Danny Shea.

    In the video showing the two suspects walking, there is a lady holding several yellow balloons. She eventually steps aside at some point as the two suspects keep walking. When you look at the video of the first explosion, you see a cluster of yellow balloons go flying in the air. Were these the balloons that the lady was holding? Was she injured in the blast?

    "It's true that allowing America to default would be irresponsible," House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) told the New York Economic Club this week. "But it would be more irresponsible to raise the debt ceiling without simultaneously taking dramatic steps to reduce spending and reform the budget process." Could it be that Boehner has drawn a line in the sand over increasing the debt limit and that Republicans will rally to the cause? Yeah, it'd be nice, but we're not betting on it. The speaker certainly appeared to be serious. "To increase the debt limit without simultaneously addressing the drivers of...

    Some Georgia lawmakers couldn’t backpedal fast enough Thursday on a “birther” bill supported earlier this week by a majority of House members. First to block out his name with a heavy black marker on House Bill 401 was John Meadows, chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee. A steady stream of legislators followed all day. By 5 p.m., at least 23 of the original 93 backers were gone from a proposal requiring presidential and vice presidential candidates prove they were born in the United States. Among them was the bill's lone Democratic supporter, Glenn Baker of Jonesboro. Seventy sponsors is...

    After his wife told CBS' Leslie Stahl how much of a journey it has been for the family that her husband John Boehner went from nighttime janitor to Speaker of the House, the Congressman began to cry. "You know what's happening over here," Stahl said, pointing at Boehner while tears begin to form. "What set you off that time," a perplexed Stahl quizzed Boehner. "He cries all the time?" Stahl asked in complete wonderment. "He's gone from mopping this floor (points to floor) to being Speaker of the House," Stahl said while Boehner was holding back tears. "Welcome to America,"...

    The iPhone 4 won't be available in stores until Thursday, but the reviews are coming in from those who were able to get their hands on them ahead of time. Despite a mostly warm reception, there are already scattered reports of defective screens. By Wednesday afternoon Gizmodo and MacRumors had reports from 20 people with a brand new iPhone 4 who say there is a yellow discolored area on the screen, or an overall yellow hue to the display even after adjusting the phone's display settings. In most cases, the users say Apple has offered to replace the phone.
  • Obama: First U.S. President to hold Press Conference without the American Flags Present.

    Did anybody notice at President Obama's Press Conference on the Deep Water Horizon disaster than something was missing in the background? I noticed something didn't look right and then it hit me. The American Flags was missing behind. Why? Behind him was just yellow curtains, and a couple of gold columns with chandeliers. I went and researched and looked at all photos of many press conferences (not press briefings) of past presidents as far as I could go and low and behold the American Flags stood proudly behind the President or off to the side. What was the reason for...

    Atlanta's transit system will rename a train route into the heart of the city's Asian community in response to complaints that calling it the "yellow line" showed a lack of racial sensitivity. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority issued a statement Thursday afternoon announcing it would change the name of the line to the "gold line." "The expressed concerns regarding the use of the phrase 'yellow line' will be addressed in the most expeditious and cost-effective manner possible," MARTA officials said in the statement. The move to change the name to "gold" coincides with the demands of some advocates in...

There are seven colors in a rainbow and 64 in a box of crayons. So why, some people in Atlanta are asking, did the Transit Authority have to pick yellow?
