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

We had a student at my school who was in tears awhile ago because she didn't qualify for the lunch program and had no money on her. Our lunch lady is awesome. She not only fed her, but she took her aside and told her to have mom call her and they would figure it out. Turns out mom forgot to check a box, a simple mistake. Too bad other lunch ladies can't do the same. - Elena

Adorable Ad Might Actually Make You Care About the Plight of British Hedgehogs | Adweek
"The cuteness factor is awwwf the charts in "Saving Harry," a two-minute animated film by Wildlife Aid U.K. that follows the journey of the titular hedgehog from suburbia back to the woods where he belongs. An adorable hedgehog puppet moves through an amazingly well-realized illustrated world. Every element is superbly crafted, from Harry's pale reflection in the puddle to the grimy, discarded food tins and liquor bottles in the alley, and ultimately, the soft sod of the forest floor and ringed bark of the towering trees. "I'm Seeing Stars," the piano-based tune on the soundtrack, performed by the Elephant Rooms, creates just the right mood—slightly somber, but hopeful, too. Some versions of the clip include the vocal track, and the singer sounds a lot like Kate Bush. You can buy the song on iTunes, with all proceeds supporting the cause." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

"Prior to 1875’s Page Act and 1882’s Chinese Exclusion Act, there were no national immigration laws. None. There were laws related to naturalization and citizenship, to how vessels reported their passengers, to banning the slave trade. Once New York’s Castle Garden Immigration Station opened in 1855, arrivals there reported names and origins before entering the U.S. But for all pre-1875 immigrants, no laws applied to their arrival. They weren’t legal or illegal; they were just immigrants. Moreover, those two laws and their extensions affected only very specific immigrant communities: suspected prostitutes and criminals (the Page Act); Chinese arrivals (the Exclusion Act); immigrants from a few other Asian nations (the extensions). " - Andrew C (✔)
"This might seem like a semantic distinction, but it’s much more; the phrase “My ancestors came here legally” implies that they “chose to follow the law,” yet none of these unaffected immigrants had to make any such choice, nor had any laws to follow." - Andrew C (✔)
"The 1892 opening of Ellis Island didn’t change these fundamental realities. Ellis arrivals had to wait in line and answer a list of questions, and could be quarantined if they had a communicable disease or were visibly insane. But if they weren’t in those aforementioned few illegal categories, they still weren’t affected by any law, made no choice of how to immigrate. Moreover, many arrivals during this period came not through Ellis but across the borders, which were unpatrolled and open." - Andrew C (✔)
"Only with the 1920s Quota Acts did Congress establish national immigration laws encompassing most arrivals. But those acts were overtly discriminatory, extending the Exclusion Act’s principles by categorizing arrivals by nationality and drastically limiting certain groups; South Carolina Senator Ellison Smith put it bluntly: “It seems to me the point as to this measure is that the time... more... - Andrew C (✔)

This is like the adoptive dad who assumed his ethnic Korean kid was Chinese all over again! - Andrew C (✔)
That's ok, There was this big glass cookie jar than nobody in the family could identify what animal it was supposed to be, for almost four decades. There was disagreement over whether it was an elephant (based on its feet and tail) or a pig (based on it's face) or some sort of freakishly weird combo animal (which was the most acceptable answer). It wasn't until it was finally passed down to me that I got a chance to see it again, and figured out it was a hippo. - April Russo

Actually, it just looks like a pig with elephant feet. - April Russo
It's clearly got a horn, but I'm usually looking at it in semi-darkness before we've turned on the lights in her room. I didn't notice the horn until recently, and she knows hippos from "But Not the Hippopotamus" so I just kind of starting pointing it out to her as a hippo without really looking at it. - Jandy

German town plays prank on neo-Nazis
"For decades, neo-Nazis have traveled to the southeastern German town of Wunsiedel, where Rudolf Hess, Adolf Hitler's deputy, was buried until 2011. The right-wing extremists march through the town in commemoration of Hess year after year, glorifying the horrors of the Third Reich. [...] Although Wunsiedel's inhabitants had observed the march from a distance over the past years, this Nov. 15, some of them welcomed the neo-Nazi protesters effusively with rainbow confetti and even cheered for them. [...] The group Rights versus Rights (Rechts gegen Rechts) had come up with a new way to protest the annual neo-Nazi march: For every meter the neo-Nazis walked, local businesses and residents would donate $12.50 to a nongovernmental organization devoted to making it easier for neo-Nazis to leave behind their hateful politics." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The 200 neo-Nazis had only two choices when they got to know about the plan: Either they proceeded, indirectly donating money to the EXIT Germany initiative, or they acknowledged their defeat and suspended the march.

A ‘Stupidity’ Virus Has Been Discovered
"A virus known to attack green algae in lakes and rivers can also infect human brains -- and it’s making dummies out of us. The virus, called ATCV-1, can impair cognitive activity, learning and memory, essentially making a person who has the virus less intelligent, researchers in the U.S. have found. Scientists said this is the first time the virus has been observed in people." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
“This is a striking example showing that the ‘innocuous’ microorganisms we carry can affect behavior and cognition,” Robert Yolken, a virologist at Johns Hopkins Medical School in Maryland, who led the original study, told the Independent. All people have physiological differences “encoded in the set of genes each inherits from parents, yet some of these differences are fueled by the various microorganisms we harbor and the way they interact with our genes,” Yolken said. - Steve C Team Marina

Arctic Fox Stock Collapses in West Fjords Reserve | Iceland Review
"The Arctic fox stock in nature reserve Hornstrandir in the West Fjords nearly collapsed this past summer. A multitude of foxes were found dead and very few pairs managed to raise cubs, as stated in a report by the Icelandic Institute of Natural History (NÍ) released last week. This is the first time that foxes have decreased at such a scale since NÍ first started following the wild animal in Hornstrandir 16 years ago. Fox hunting has not been practiced in the nature reserve since 1995, ruv.is reports. The number of foxes is also declining nationwide for the first time since the initial count in 1979. In the autumn of 2007 their number peaked at eight times the stock size of 1979 after a 30-year period of continued growth. In 2013 their estimated number was 11,000." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The reason for this development is unknown but is believed to be connected to changes in the climate, food availability, animal health and even outside pollution, NÍ concludes. Hunters have reported an increase in sterile vixens in South Iceland, fewer burrows in North and South Iceland and variation in cub sizes in West Iceland, which indicates unstable or fewer food sources. The... more... - Jessie

I believe male artic foxes also commit infanticide at times; eg lack of food so killing off competition, so if there is evidence of this too then this is especially worrying. As for the comment by the hunters, seriously, they are listening to hunters, so clearly they are hunting foxes, even if they were hunting other things, how would they know a vixen is sterile?! Unless of course these hunters have been monitering the artic foxes and observed no cubs being born even after mating? - Halil

"On Friday, threatened authorities once again came for Christ, this time arresting the man known as "Philly Jesus" for soliciting tips at Philadelphia's LOVE Park. From NY Daily News: The entertainer, who is similar to costumed characters in Times Square that pose for pictures with tourists and accept tips, took a picture with a group of people then when he told them tips were welcome a police officer confronted him and said he was soliciting. That led to an altercation and his arrest.

European Probe Survived Comet Landing with Luck and Great Design
"Europe's Rosetta mission pulled off the first-ever soft landing on a comet Wednesday thanks to a lot of great engineering and hard work — along with a healthy dose of luck, mission scientists say. Rosetta's Philae lander successfully touched down on Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko early Wednesday morning (Nov. 12), more than 300 million miles (483 million kilometers) from Earth. But Philae's anchoring harpoons didn't fire as planned, and the 220-lb. (100 kilograms) probe bounced off the comet twice before settling onto its icy surface for good." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Philae's first bounce off 67P was a big one, sending the lander about 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) above the comet's surface, Ulamec said. Philae eventually came down again 1 hour and 50 minutes later, likely about 0.6 miles away from the original landing site. (The team still isn't sure exactly where the lander ended up.) But the probe was nearly lost to space. It rebounded off 67P's... more... - Mark H

"gold silkworm") was a venom-based poison associated with cultures of south China, particularly Nanyue. The traditional preparation of gu poison involved sealing several venomous creatures (e.g., centipede, snake, scorpion) inside a closed container, where they devoured one another and allegedly concentrated their toxins into a single survivor. Gu was used in black magic practices such as manipulating sexual partners, creating malignant diseases, and causing death. According to Chinese folklore, a gu spirit could transform into various animals, typically a worm, caterpillar, snake, frog, dog, or pig." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

LOL Yes, I'm two weeks behind. :-P I had to ask Dominic about this because they're pronouncing it wrong on the show so I couldn't look up the pinyin. The 'c' in 'jincan' is actually a 'ts' sound so it's more like "JEEN-tsan" in Mandarin. - Jessie
When I asked him, Dominic said "Oh I know about this. It's in some of Jin Yong's novels. I know all the antidotes, too, by the way. Just so you know." - Jessie
