Wildlife: Feds say genetic testing confirms that wolf near Grand Canyon is from the Northern Rockies | Summit County Citizens Voice
"Federal biologists say that, based on a genetic analysis of scat, they’re now 100 percent sure that the wolf-like animal spotted near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is in fact a wild Rocky Mountain gray wolf. The confirmation clarifies that this gray wolf is fully protected under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced. Biologists have been tracking the canid since early October and were able to collect scat samples in early November. USFWS biologists have also been trying to capture the animal to collect blood and replace the radio collar. Those efforts were unsuccessful and have been suspended due to cold weather, “as the primary concern is the welfare of this animal,” according to the agency. Any future capture efforts will be for collar and transmitter replacement, and the wolf will be released on site." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

First grader left hungry by lunch lady over account balance: ”Guess what, you can’t have a lunch’ http://www.rawstory.com/rs...
From Comments: If his mother was pregnant with him, they'd make sure he was fed. They'd make sure she was tied to the bed and forcibly fed until he was born. After that, they don't care - WarLord
From Comments: ...after reading this news story, conservatives across the US were embarrassed by ejaculating in their pants at the thought of an American kid going hungry. Now they can hardly wait for a chance to deny him healthcare, shut down his public school, throw his family out on the street, and, when he's older, figure out a way to deny him the right to vote. Fun times...for soulless, heartless, dogmatic, reactionary, regressive, conservative assholes... - WarLord

So, there is not much I am eating right now as most foods make me green. Just the smell or thought of some foods make me wanna toss. Every so often I get a craving that I feel I can handle. So tonight I wanted ice cream. No idea why. But the ice cream pull was hard. So Scott offers to run out to DQ to get me some. Text me what you want he says....
Great, I say. I just texted my entire craving order to Colleen by accident. And now I can't stop laughing. - Mary Carmen
If I had any shame I'd be embarrassed by what I just asked him to bring me. - Mary Carmen

Wow. Good for them, but I can't imagine how difficult the road forward will be for them. I hope this makes a difference. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Sad that death threats and boycotting someone you previously liked is a reaction anyone has, but to have it on the level that Chely Wright faced is horrendous. I just hope that as more artists come out, people will start to accept that it's just how things are and no amount of tantrums will force passionate musicians away. - Heather

David Handler made a terrible dog's breakfast of the YA win. Black author - watermelon jokes. Plus foolishness about the Coretta Scott King award. So disappointing (as was the general silence in response - only excusable if they couldn't find their jaws on the floor). - barbara fister

I saw that this morning. Money is nice, but I'm more interested to see what he does in the future. - Katy S from iPhone
He strikes me as the kind of person who will learn from a fuckup. We probably won't have a chance to find out any time soon, however. - RepoRat
I have heard that he can be a jerk, but I get the impression that he could learn from all of this, too. - Katy S from iPhone
I found him thoroughly delightful at an 826 benefit a few years ago, and while he was kind of saucy, he didn't say anything that offended liberal Seattleites. I've never had personal interactions with him. - kaijsa
He has said publicly his words were racist. Stupid to say them, but he's owning up to what was wrong which is sadly unusual. - barbara fister from iPhone
Yes. He apologized for real, not just the standard "sorry if you were offended" nonsense. It's a good sign that he took responsibility, but it still boggles my mind that he thought those jokes were okay. - kaijsa
link to the better apology, please? - maʀtha

Confirmed case of mumps at my daughter's daycare. FFS. #StopAVN
Oh no! I had that as a kid. SUCKED. - Yvonne Renee
See, if i ran a daycare I wouldn't admit any kid that didn't have proof of vaccinations. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
My kid sister brought mumps home from kindergarten. She gave it to me, then I gave it to my mom. - bentley
At present, kids don't have to be fully vaccinated to attend daycare or school. If a kids gets a VPD there are really strict rules to follow though - eg notification procedures, and non-vaccinated children are excluded for a certain period of time. There is a push to make vaccination mandatory (except in the case of true medical contraindication) for enrollment which I fully support. We already have stupid loopholes for religious exemption though and they would probably still apply to enrollment. - Melly - #TeamMarina
When my kid started school I had to provide a complete immunization record. When she had to go to the hospital the admit lady posed the classic/understood "Just the usual childhood illnesses?" I then realized that she had had NONE of them. Not one kid she knew ever had the "usual childhood illnesses." - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Oh no. - Joe

John Hodgman is “baffled” Uber exec wasn’t fired, says he won’t use Uber http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
"... In particular, his public axe-grinding against Sarah Lacy was beyond unprofessional, and simply gross. And, if reported fairly, this moment from the Buzzfeed account itself implies a specific—if veiled—threat that’s an eyelash away from blackmail. “Uber’s dirt-diggers, Michael said, could expose Lacy. They could, in particular, prove a particular and very specific claim about her personal life.” And his defense—that he didn’t mean the words coming out of his mouth—is beyond cowardly. ..." - WarLord
My take: Uber and The Sharing Economy (pat pending) is just another rapacious rich guy who has a scam to avoid minimum wage and of course wage and hour laws. Silicon Valley as a group is dismissive of workers and views exploitation as new (old) business model. So much for technology freeing workers #gildedage - WarLord

Financiers and Visitandines - Obscure French pastries! - I got 4 days off work before my assistant's vacation, which is stunning. I did multiple little works on days off, too, which in some ways is sad. But it's also a good sign. It means I'm interested in baking again. I just kinda jumped in and prayed the joy would come back :)
