Anger over refusal to bench school athlete accused of rape in Wash -
"The decision of a Washington state school district to allow a high school student charged with rape to continue to play on the football team has sparked anger from parents amid national scrutiny over how college and professional athletes are censured for violence. Tyler Smith, 18, was arrested last month during football practice at his high school in Hoquiam in western Washington, and charged with raping two teenage girls - one in July and another in 2012, court documents show. Smith, who was released on bail pending trial and has returned to school and the football team, told investigators the girls said "no," but that in one case: "I thought she was saying 'no' for pleasure," according to court records." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I can see not kicking someone out of school to let judicial process play out but extracurriculars should be gone if there was enough evidence for arrest in something this serious. - Steve C Team Marina

Media react to NBC News' Dr. Nancy Snyderman violating Ebola quarantine - LA Times
"Dr. Nancy Snyderman is taking the heat from the media after she and members of her NBC News crew violated a mandatory three-week quarantine after returning from West Africa. Snyderman, who is NBC News' chief medical correspondent, recently returned from Africa after reporting on the devastating Ebola outbreak there. One of her cameramen, Ashoka Mukpo, tested positive for the virus, and the rest of Snyderman's crew agreed to a 21-day voluntary quarantine. However, according to reports from TMZ and Planet Princeton, Snyderman and members of her crew were spotted outside the Peasant Grill restaurant in Hopewell, N.J., on Oct. 9. After the reports, the New Jersey Department of Health made the quarantine, which is to last until Oct. 22, mandatory." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

These Crappy Reviews of National Parks on Yelp Will Make You Laugh, and Then Probably Cry | Adweek

"Yelp reviewers have a knack for making everything about them, and potentially ruining businesses because they woke up on the wrong side of bed. Some places have gotten so cynical about these "critics" that they've even asked people to post bad reviews on purpose. But what about America's most pristine natural landscapes? Surely Yelp reviewers can unite in their appreciation of such beauty. What about the purple mountain majesties? The friggin' amber waves of grain? What about the flipping fruited plains, America? Sorry, people will hate on all that, too. Mashable recently combed Yelp for negative reviews of the national parks by people who clearly don't like nice things and would be much happier on their couch watching reality television. The results are hilarious. And completely depressing." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

I know it's been a long time since I rapped at ya, but I've been plenty busy. (As Jim Anchower used to say) I was away for a couple weeks and it's impossible to fully catch up, but I went back 360 articles. I missed keeping up with everyone over the last couple weeks but things flared up and demanded full attention.
Howdy. - Spidra Webster
Glad to have ya back! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
You people are prolific, BTW. going back 360 messages took me back to Thursday. (5 days?) I was gone for about 2 or 3 weeks, so that would be a lot of browsing to really catch up. - Brian Johns

The Shelf Life of Food [] -
The Shelf Life of Food []
"Foods unopened, uncut or uncooked - unless stated otherwise - and their shelf life in the pantry, refrigerator and freezer." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
I can quibble with a bunch of this (they list meats as lasting 1-2 days in the fridge but my experience is that they last longer than that), but I'm mostly surprised by some things, like people keeping cucumbers in the pantry. - Stephen Mack
I guess I'd substitute 'counter' for pantry and then it isn't so weird - fresh cucumbers from my garden usually just end up on the counter for about a day, and then they're eaten. If I get a bunch at the market/in my farm share, then they end up in the fridge. If they're sliced at all, into the refrigerator. I wish they had a 'put into storage' column as well, because things like... more... - Jennifer Dittrich
But a cold cucumber tastes so good! I can't imagine room temperature cucumber. - Stephen Mack
Well, to be fair, our room temperature here might often be a bit colder - but I'm usually slicing them to put in with other cold things, so they're pretty cool by the time they're eaten. - Jennifer Dittrich
Potatoes in the fridge? Really? - Walt Crawford
If you live someplace warm and muggy, yeah - or someplace where bugs are a problem that you don't have full control over (like an apartment.) - Jennifer Dittrich
Doesn't the resulting conversion of starch to sugar sort of mess up the potatoes? (Not my superior knowledge; quoting one of the signs in Safeway's produce department.) - Walt Crawford
Yeah, it's not the best, it just might be what you do in a pinch. I mean, their recommendation on eggs only applies to the ones washed and prepped American style, so I'm guessing there may be some recommendations that you take with a grain of salt. - Jennifer Dittrich

My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
You are a good guy, Mike. These days are precious and it takes a huge heart to share them. You are amazing. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Muslim scholar discovered America 500 years before Columbus -
Muslim scholar discovered America 500 years before Columbus
Abu Raihan al-Biruni, who was born in the year 973 in what is today known as Uzbekistan, was the first person to officially suggest that an undiscovered landmass in the ocean between the Europe and Asia actually existed. Although al-Biruni, who made the claim in the early eleventh century, never himself laid eyes on the Americas, his unmatched expertise on geography and mapping led him to the conclusion that the known world – which spanned from the west coasts of Europe and Africa to the east coasts of Asia – only accounted for two-fifths of the world. - Halil from Bookmarklet
His knowledge of both Middle-Eastern and Indian languages, as well as being trained in mathematics, astronomy, mineralogy, geography, cartography, geometry and trigonometry under great scholars like Ahmad al-Farghani, gave him deep insight into the sciences of various fields and civilizations. Al-Biruni began by working out the latitudinal and longitudinal locations of various cities in... more... - Halil
This'll upset/piss some people off I'm sure! - Halil
only the people who slept through school and swallow everything News Corp. sells as gospel. - Big Joe Silence
The only thing that pisses me off is the concept of two "undiscovered" continents that just happened to be filled with many people. Hrm. - Jenny H. from Android
^^^ Good point, like it said towards the end when the natives chased the Vikings away! - Halil
Will someone figure out for me if there are some forces in play that would make it reasonable to hypothesize that that there should be large raised landmasses rather than just water between Europe/ Africa and Asia? Or was the hypothesis just based on the stupid amount of open ocean his new calculations would give without the landmass? - Eivind
All scientific hypotheses have a speculative origin to some degree that drives others to either prove or disprove it, if science didn't work that way we'd still be treating people with leeches. This guy was one of the few people of his time to hypothesise that the world was round and not flat, this and other facts and his own calculations about the worlds circumference probably lead him... more... - Halil
Hypotheses aren't proved or disproved, Halil, but they can be rejected or supported. And the world back then wasn't as flat as popular legend would have you believe :) I was just wondering out loud if he had more than the "nonsensicalness" of the large ocean to base his guess on, but I suspect not. - Eivind from Android
Whilst I agree there are subtle differences in the meaning of those words, they essentially mean the same thing: "I believe the milk in that glass is sweet" 1) I will prove that the milk is sweet by drinking it! 2) I will confirm that the milk is sweet by drinking it! The same meaning. - Halil
In the case of using the scientific method, semantics are important. You never "prove" something with science. You can reject or fail to reject a null hypothesis (the status quo) or support/fail to support an alternative hypothesis. In colloquial speech, people often use all sorts of terminology about science that scientists (well, any good ones) would never use, e.g. "prove",... more... - Jenny H. from Android
Science is highly organised guessing, until a better guess comes along. - Pete : Team Marina
Jenny, yes you're right, your argument makes sense and as an enthusiast I should be more careful about my language when talking about science, I take back what I said. - Halil

"ECN is populated with more than 120 resources, including not only SBCC materials like posters, brochures and infographics, but also Demographic and Health Surveys of affected regions, customized maps and peer-reviewed journal articles. The site is responsive to mobile devices and optimized for low bandwidth situations. It includes an RSS feed of Ebola-related news that is updated in real time. It’s easily searchable; ECN’s faceted search allows users to find materials based on language, type (e.g., public service announcements, posters, and fact sheets), topic (e.g., prevention, treatment, safe burial practices), audience (e.g., community health workers, governments, health care providers) and any other facets deemed necessary. Users can also upload their own materials, which are posted after a brief review process. ECN continues to expand as new resources are added each day. Because it is built on an open-source platform, ECN can be enhanced with a host of new features as the crisis unfolds." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Vatican proposes 'stunning' shift on gays, lesbians – CNN Belief Blog - Blogs -
"Using strikingly open language, a new Vatican report says the church should welcome and appreciate gays, and offers a solution for divorced and remarried Catholics who want to receive Communion. At a press conference on Monday to present the report, Cardinal Louis Antonio Tagle of the Philippines said Catholic clergy meeting here have largely focused on the impact of poverty, war and immigration on families. But the newly proposed language on gays and civil marriages represents a “pastoral earthquake,” said one veteran Vatican journalist. “Regarding homosexuals, it went so far as to pose the question whether the church could accept and value their sexual orientation without compromising Catholic doctrine,” said John Thavis, a former Rome bureau chief for Catholic News Service. The Rev. James Martin, an author and Jesuit priest, called the report's language on gays and lesbians "revolutionary."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Canada's first Thanksgiving: Frobisher set stage for our celebrations in different spirit than U.S. -
"The first Thanksgiving celebration by Euro-peoples in North America was not in New England but in Newfoundland by Martin Frobisher, 42 years before the Pilgrims. Frobisher's Thanksgiving was not for harvest but homecoming. He had safely returned from a search for the Northwest Passage, avoiding the later fate of Henry Hudson and Sir John Franklin. Given the fierceness of Arctic winter and the tragedy of these other expeditions, we can understand why he was grateful to come out alive. But why a special thanksgiving? Frobisher sailed under Elizabeth I, whose reign was marked by gratitude from beginning to end. For her first 20 years she held public thanksgiving simply for having lived to ascend the throne -- having escaped the fate of her mother, Anne Boleyn, at the hand of her sister, "Bloody Mary," in the previous reign. Ten years after Frobisher's return, England gave thanks for delivery from the Spanish Armada. And in her last speech to Parliament the great Queen began "We perceive... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

The Morrígan ("phantom queen") or Mórrígan ("great queen")
The Morrígan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster cycle she also takes the forms of an eel, a wolf and a cow. She is generally considered a war deity comparable with the Germanic Valkyries, although her association with a cow may also suggest a role connected with wealth and the land. She is often depicted as a trio of goddesses, all sisters.[1][2][3] Although membership of the triad varies, the most common combinations are Badb, Macha and Nemain,[4] or Badb, Macha and Anand; Anand is also given as an alternate name for Morrigu.[5] Other accounts name Fea, and others.[4] - Halil from Bookmarklet

so yesterday was my first day at the new part-time little pay no benefits nonprofit gig and it was kind of awesome. aside from having to get used to a new routine of having to be somewhere at a certain time dressed in grown-up clothes and adjusting to a schedule switching between jobs during the week, and digging through the files and emails...
of the last three people who had this job going back to 2012 to try and get oriented, and there being no communal coffee in the office kitchen and no phones, and the first official outreach email I sent was met with consternation and terse chastening from one of our partners, and the first event I'm supposed to be supporting happens tomorrow. the rest of it was awesome, which was basically that I looked and felt fabulous for no reason. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
