Biden's son discharged from Navy after drug test -
"The Navy Reserve discharged Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter this year after he tested positive for cocaine, U.S. officials confirmed. The discharge of Biden, a 44-year-old lawyer and managing partner at an investment firm, was first reported by the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. He confirmed the report in a statement to CNN. "It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy's decision. With the love and support of my family, I'm moving forward," he said." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

So Wednesday I am gonna go and give this fitness bootcamp a try. Gonna do the 28 days and if I like it and see some results I'm gonna stick with it. I am kinda excited about it.
Cool! I hope you have an awesome time :D - Jennifer Dittrich
That's awesome - Stephen Mack
Sweet. Good luck and kick ass! - Tamara J. B.
Have fun. - bentley
Neat! Kick ass! - Marie
Cool! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Enjoy! But be careful. I have a number of friends who have done Fit Body Boot Camp and quality of instruction varies greatly by location. Be your own advocate every step of the way. The trainers may not always do so on your behalf (they are driven by turning out fast results to bring in more clients, not by ensuring your health and wellness). H.I.I.T. is hard but awesome! You're gonna love it! :D - Hookuh Tinypants
It was pretty fucking awesome. I'm in. I was very relieved to see that it was not Cross Fit. - Mary Carmen
Yay! :D (And I'm glad I'm not the only person who gets all >.> at Cross Fit...) - Hookuh Tinypants

Rick Perry in London: 'You always sound so darn smart' -
""It's not just because to Americans, you always sound so darn smart and refined no matter what you're saying," he said. "And it's not just because of your many cultural exports from James Bond to Julie Andrews to Simon Cowell to One Direction -- well, that might be a bit of a mixed bag. So many good things in the world began in Britain, and so many good things in the world to this day depend on Britain."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Steve, you got it all wrong my friend. I am saying Rick Perry is an idiot but you know who else is an idiot? the ones who change their mind simply by knowing what source of a sentence is. That's called being highly politicized and it stops your brain from functioning properly. - ؛ patrick

American scientists unearth lost 1960s polar satellite images worth billions | Barentsobserver
"A team of American scientists has recovered billions of dollars’ worth of “dark data” from the 1960s, pushing back the modern satellite record of sea ice extent by 17 years." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
"NSIDC colleague Garrett Campbell had discovered was both the largest and the smallest Antarctic sea ice extent ever recorded, one year apart, as well as the earliest sea ice maximum ever just three years later; it was an inexplicable hole in the Arctic sea ice even while the overall extent agreed with modern trends." - Eric Logan

A Filipino restaurant owner says shame may be one reason authentic Filipino food has not become mainstream - 2014 Feb 13 - PRI
I say give it a few years. Americans maybe can only focus on one Asian cuisine at a time. - Anika from Android
that may very well be true for Americans as a group. - Big Joe Silence
I can totally see colonial mentality being a big part of it, though—I've definitely heard Filipino Americans be self-deprecating about how Filipino food isn't really it's own cuisine especially since it borrows so many elements from Chinese, Spanish, Mexican, and even Indian food. - Victor Ganata
There's a filipino restaurant not too far from me. As soon as things happen and I can start eating out again, I'm going to try it. So, maybe by the end of the year, if I'm lucky. - bentley

Richard Dawkins: Religion isn’t the problem in the Middle East - Salon
I will admit, I am surprised that Dawkins would concede such a thing. - Victor Ganata
I do find it interesting that so many "rational" people are willing to assign causation to essentialist reductionist explanations like religion and culture and never to the long history and ongoing legacy of colonialism and imperialism, not to mention the ongoing economic hegemony by the institutions of global capitalism. - Victor Ganata
Perhaps religion is a problem amplifier? - Todd Hoff
Religion is often an expression of culture and nationalism; the beliefs, spirituality, practices are less the driving and defining force than the Statement "I am a ____" I haven't read the Dawkins piece yet, but if I were writing something with that title, that's what I would be describing. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The thing that stands out to me the most, though, is the tacit denialism of the thesis that the primary cause of these conflicts is colonialism and imperialism, both historically and ongoing. I think these conflicts are completely intractable without acknowledging this. The contribution of religion is almost entirely an incidental factor, an accident of the history of colonialism and imperialism. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
The Islamic empire was one of the largest on earth for a very long time. It was because of religion that the empire was built. So there is an expansionist kernel there. Not that I think anyone should be stuck with silly boundaries drawn up because of a world war. But the way the campaign is being carried, the violence, could be a reaction to colonialism and imperialism? I don't know. Just wondering... - Todd Hoff
I think the bloodiest modern ME conflict (Syria's civil war) has many causes (the dominant position of Alawites, etc), but colonialism and imperialism are not even close to be "primary". - кенар жалобно поёт
But how did the Alawites become so dominant in the first place and why are there so many disparate cultural groups in a nominally unitary state? How did Syria even come to exist as it is in the first place? - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Of course it has something to do with the French colonial policy, but that was 70 years ago. If we're going this far, then maybe, you know, all the problems were caused by the Ottomans? :) After all, the Ottoman colonialism did last 400 years, while the French were in place just for 30 years. - кенар жалобно поёт
Was it really the religion that inspired imperialism, or did imperialism spread the religion? In any case, we clearly know Islam doesn't have a monopoly on expansionist imperialist tendencies, so the idea that this specific religion is the primary cause seems suspect to me. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Well, the Arab tribes became united only by the Prophet's sword. So in that case we can be pretty sure that Caliphate couldn't exist without the advent of Islam. Not that every imperialism is a bad thing, though (take Rome), the Arabs did spread many of the arts and sciences. - кенар жалобно поёт
I dunno, I have a feeling not everyone whom the Romans conquered would've necessarily seen the Empire as a good thing, but, hey, the winners get to write history. - Victor Ganata

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

Will Letter for Lunch: One Woman’s Plan to Hand-Write Menus in Exchange for Food -- Grub Street
"Hom is currently working on her sixth project in Clinton Hill — and some places, like Docklands, have requested that she hand-write their entire menus. "I go in, I letter, and then everything I write, I get to eat," she explains. "It's a complete fair barter. So if I write the entire menu, sometimes I'll have to go back multiple times and bring friends to feast. It's amazing!"" - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Graphic designer Lauren Hom started noticing that many handsome restaurants overlooked a detail that, in her mind, was critical: the hand-writing on their chalkboard signs.

Great Disappointment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Great Disappointment was a major event in the history of the Millerite movement, a 19th-century American Christian sect that formed out of the Second Great Awakening. Based on his interpretations of the prophecies in the book of Daniel, William Miller, a Baptist preacher, proposed that Jesus Christ would return to the earth during the year 1844. The specific date of October 22, 1844, was preached by Samuel S. Snow. Thousands of followers, some of whom had given away all of their possessions, waited expectantly. When Jesus did not appear, the date became known as the Great Disappointment." - Eivind from Bookmarklet

HIV's spread traced back to 1920s Kinshasa - LA Times
"In a paper published recently in the journal Science, researchers argued that HIV-1 group M -- the strain of HIV responsible for about 90% of infections worldwide -- first appeared in the city of Leopoldville, or what is now Kinshasa, in the 1920s. Using statistical methods and genetic sequencing data, researchers determined that the disease spread through what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo via poor medical practices and through the interaction of sex workers and miners." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"However, some researchers believe the virus made the jump to humans much earlier. "To say that this started around the 1920s just doesn't wash with me," said Dr. Joseph McCormick, a viral disease expert at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, who was not involved in the study. McCormick said the broad diversity of HIV strains in Africa suggests that the virus had... more... - Steve C Team Marina
Super cool. I remember reading maybe a decade ago that they had tested various archived samples and found cases of HIV as early as 1940. Each step of new knowledge about the origin and spread has been so fascinating to read. I suppose in a way it's "the" illness that's been discovered and researched in my lifetime. I still remember the PSA with Magic Johnson from the beginning of my Wayne's World tape, and reading Ryan White's autobiography as a kid. - Lo
