Living in a minefield: the wolves of the Golan Heights | Environment | The Guardian
"Sitting in the cold of an open jeep, we are waiting for dawn. The thick snow provides some reflective light and we strain our eyes, hoping to catch a glimpse of the wolf pack as they return home from their night’s hunt. This family of wolves holds one of the safest territories a large predator could possibly hope for: a minefield in the Golan Heights, near the Israel-Syria border. One step outside the barbed-wire fence, however, and the wolves must be very careful. Although wolves are provided with substantial legal protection from the Israel Nature and Parks Authority (INPA) – enabling one of the greatest wolf recoveries in the world – they are hunted, culled and poached across the region. In an effort to appease ranchers who fear for their livestock while simultaneously conserving this growing wolf population, three management zones were delineated." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Wolves live in extended family units, in which only one pair reproduces and the entire pack cooperate in raising and educating the young. They hunt together, patrol their territory together, and are deeply bonded to one another. Some wolves stay with their parents well into adulthood. It is these social ties that make wolves such powerful ecological players. It is the pack – not the... more... - Jessie

So this just happened to me:
*grabs popcorn* - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
went shopping at Target. By the parking lot entrance was an older looking man, probably 45-50, with a gas can, holding a sign that said, "out of gas. Please help." After I parked my car I walked over to him and gave him $20. He was very gracious, explained that he was trying to get back to Fresno and thanked me profusely. As I turned back towards the entrance, this woman stopped her car... more... - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also, "these people." Lady you're lucky you were stopped where you could block traffic, because I had some thoughts to share with you about your word choice. Are people born this ignorant? - Mary Carmen from iPhone
People like that - those people, in fact (!) - are made. Sad. And good for you. And yeah, karma. - Louise "Weezy" Alcorn
Dunno if you've read one of Jon Carroll's annual Untied Way column, where he advocates a day of personal Untied Way charity: you go to an ATM, take out as many $20s as you can do with it being just a little uncomfortable, and whenever somebody asks for money, you give them a $20. Without worrying about what they're going to do with it. - Walt Crawford
[No, I did not misspell United in the previous comment: This is the Untied Way, not the United Way.] - Walt Crawford
Walt, I have not, but I love it. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I'd rather donate and be "wrong" than not donate and be "right". Intent is all. - Mo Kargas
I make it a point to always donate bus money when asked for it. Most of the time "bus money" is a social fiction but pride is as valuable as any coins. And it reminds me of the "5cent economy" at my sister's school where people would ask friends for five cents and you had to give it unless you really didn't have anything on you, because what kind of selfish tightfisted jerk can't spare a measley 5c? So, same thing, but scaled up to adult salaries and needs. - Deborah Fitchett

Man tells cops he was drunk when he stole horse for ride to Mardi Gras parade |
"A Napoleonville man told authorities he was drunk when he stole a horse last weekend and attempted to ride it to a Mardi Gras parade in Thibodaux, according to Assumption Parish Sheriff Mike Waguespack's office. The sheriff's office found a horse running in a field near Hard Time Road in Napoleonville around 10:30 a.m. Feb. 15. They determined it was a horse reported stolen earlier that morning. A bridle also was stolen. Waguespack's office said investigators identified 20-year-old Maison Rivere as a suspect in the horse theft. Rivere allegedly admitted to investigators he was drunk and was trying to ride the horse bareback to Thibodaux to watch a Mardi Gras parade. Thibodaux and Napoleonville are about 18 miles apart. The horse bucked him off several times, Rivere told investigators, so he set the horse free and headed home on foot." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Lake Erie is frozen—and the photos are stunning
"Lake Eerie reportedly became 100 percent frozen on Monday for the first time since 1996. Frigid temperatures brought a plate of ice estimated to be between 16 and 24 inches thick. More arctic weather is on tap for the week, and total Great Lakes ice coverage could reach record-setting levels. Erie freezes wholly because it is comparatively shallow relative to other Great Lakes; its average depth is 62 feet, whereas Lake Ontario's is 282 feet. Here's the massive ice cube, as shown through viral Twitter photos." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Mayor Garcetti Is Actually Refunding Those Bogus Parking Tickets: LAist -
Mayor Garcetti Is Actually Refunding Those Bogus Parking Tickets: LAist
"When Mayor Eric Garcetti discovered in November that parking officers were handing out bogus parking tickets in Los Angeles, he wasn't very happy about it. In fact, he said he was "pissed," and vowed that folks who were wronged would be refunded by the city. And hey, it looks like our mayor has kept to his promise. Kudos to him! I recently received a letter in the mail last month from Garcetti's office, saying that I was cited for a parking ticket in an area that had relaxed parking zones, meaning roads where street cleaning has been cancelled and parking tickets aren't supposed to be handed out. It also said that the citation was dismissed, and that if I had paid it (which I had), then I would get a refund within 30 days. And lo and behold, I received a check from the City of Los Angeles before the 30 days were up for the amount of $73. It's really happening, guys. In the letter, Garcetti wrote: "As Mayor, I want to ensure Los Angeles' city government provides Angelenos and visitors... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

You guys. I came home, opened the mail, and in it was a card with Laura Ingalls Wilder on the front. I legit squealed when I saw it. As soon as I get off the phone with my mom, I will take a picture, but I was so excited, I had to come here and post about it while I was on the phone. Thank you, Victoria! I love you <3

About to meet with the attorney and learn what happens next. Brave face on!
Good luck! - Anika
There were a bunch of errors in the owner's complaint that I didn't catch. Attorney prepared an amended answer that I'm on my way to file. This is to buy us time but the scariest part is wondering if in the end the court will order me to pay the owner for the time we've been here not paying rent. That would take all the $$ I've saved up for a move in/deposit. But, all that in time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Keep the faith. And let us know how we can help. You know we got your back. - Mary Carmen
I do know that. Thank you, Luv. got a referral to meet with a lawyer from a different group who may represent me further. I talk to that person on Wednesday. - Starmama

This chocolate costs £169 per bar and you have to eat it with wooden tongs - Mirror Online
"The most expensive pure chocolate bar in the world is on sale for £169. Only fine grade cacao from 14 farmers on the coast of Ecuador is used. And it takes 36 steps to create a 1.5oz To’ak bar. Co-founder Jerry Toth said: “We make chocolate with the same care and precision as we know it from fine wine and premium small-batch whiskey.” To’ak chocolate is translated to “earth” and “tree” in ancient Ecuadorian dialects. It is eaten using wooden tongs, or tasting utensils, so that it is easier to perceive the chocolate’s aroma on the nose" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

My niece went to college this year partially on cello (music) and debate scholarships. She won her first amateur boxing match this weekend. I don't get college kids these days. What happened to good old fashioned freshman 15 and beer pong?
guessing that she's doing homework too - Kevin Johnson

The boy learned to click his tongue to make a noise this weekend. Then spent the rest of the weekend demonstrating his new talent to anyone within a 500 mile radius. The cats were less enthusiastic then the parents in their praise.
On the plus side neither cat has mauled him yet which is saying something since the tail is the most appealing target on them. - Steve C, Team Marina
College dean gets fake IDs meant for student named Dean - -
"Police said an 18-year-old college student named Dean ordered a box of fake IDs and had them shipped to his campus address. What the student probably didn't think about was he shared the same name with a dean at his school. The package was delivered to the administrator, who open the box and found eight realistic-looking IDs, one complete with the student's real name. "You can't make this up," Radnor Police Superintendent William Colarulo told the Philadelphia Inquirer." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Went out for a walk into town to pick up some bath products from Lush. As is our way we ended up hitting one or more-than-one pubs on the walk back home. At the third pub we had a long talk about a number of things which led to me saying "That will make a good #SaturdayFF anecdote for Friendfeed."
Sadly, further pubs leapt up and interrupted the ensuing return home and despite a probing of our collective memories neither of us can now remember what it was. I'm sure it was going to be quite good. - Mark H
You guys are like our spirit couple. Yes, I'm at the pub and I've had many glasses of wine and whisky sours, but whatever. We need to get together! - Jenny H. from Android

This issue of Library Journal just showed up in my work mailbox. I simply marked my name off the distribution list and put it in someone else's mailbox.
I should have put it in Jason P's mailbox. with a note that said there'd be a quiz on it later. ;) - ellbeecee
I kind of miss the print distributions sometimes. Not that I hadn't already seen most of the news (except the reviews--boy do I miss review magazines). We don't do that here. - Hedgehog

Sick of remarks about getting free stuff, the phrase public assistance spoken in a certain tone, assumptions being made about freeloading. In situations where I'm obliged to remain pleasant and businesslike. I tell people Fuck You, in my head, constantly.

Why is 'fathom' a word but 'unfathom' is not a word but 'unfathomable' is a word? The fact that I have a migraine is unrelated.

Your unforeseeable proposal is unbeatable, but unworkable. Banning the unobjectionable word "unwork" is not only unreasonable, but unenforceable, because the forms you need to file are unavailable. Let's make this post unforgettable. - Amit Patel
