How long before Bundy cult members starting complaining about government overreach in this confiscation of the couple’s tortured children?

In fact, when Odalis Sharp was arrested for child abuse, I don't remember a single Bundy cult member standing up for her. They were silent, they didn't condemn, but they didn't support her in any way that I'm aware of.

True, but I guess I was thinking of SRB going to help that couple who had the baby they weren't taking care of. Although maybe she was just looking for another one to adopt, come to think of it.

I think the cult was too busy with Ammon in prison when that happened.

Woman, Now a Firefighter Herself, Reunites With FDNY Lieutenant Who Saved Her When She Was 6
Her bedroom was very, very hot, and 6-year-old Anissa Cruz couldn’t breathe.

“I remember feeling suffocated. I was overwhelmed and terrified.”
And then there was a tall man in heavy fire gear, lifting her up and carrying her out of the Bronx apartment where she lived with her mother and father.

Some 16 years after New York City firefighter Stephen McNally saved Cruz and her mother, the now 21-year-old reunited with the retired lieutenant in an emotional meeting at Engine 75 Ladder 33 on Walton Avenue.

Cruz’s dad perished in the inferno, which ignited when he fell asleep while cooking. She and her mother suffered smoke inhalation and burns, but were otherwise OK.

And you see just enough of him to know he's too chubby to run more than 25 yards without struggling. Very "tactical."

Msg from a friend's wife, who is a new attorney. For those of you who have been there, done that, (and those who haven't!) it takes like 2 seconds. Please?
Feel like doing me a small favor? Head over to SSRN and download my article on sexual assault in the entertainment industry! (I promise you don't have to read it! ;]) It would mean a lot to me. In academia, no one pays attention to your scholarship until they can see that others are interested. It would mean a lot! (Feel free to share with others!)

Thank you!

The last of the Qumran rolls
Mysterious Dead Sea Scroll deciphered in Israel
22 January 2018

The fragments of Dead Sea Scroll took a year to piece together
One of the last remaining obscure parts of the Dead Sea Scrolls has been deciphered by researchers in Israel.


Sixty tiny fragments were pieced together over a period of a year, identifying the name of a festival marking the changes between seasons.

It also revealed a second scribe corrected mistakes made by the author.

The 900 scrolls, written by an ancient Jewish sect, have been a source of fascination since they were first discovered in a cave in Qumran in 1947.

The collection is considered the oldest copy of the Bible ever found, dating to at least the 4th Century BC.

It is not known who wrote the scrolls, although some scholars have credited an ascetic desert sect called the Essenes.

The sections of the scrolls were pieced together by Dr Eshbal Ratson and Prof Jonathan Ben-Dov of Haifa University. They were written in code and some of the fragments were smaller than 1 sq cm (0.155 sq inches).

They detailed special occasions celebrated by the ancient Jewish sect, which observed a unique 364-day calendar.

These included festivals of New Wheat, New Wine and New Oil, which were related to the Jewish festival of Shavuot.

The researchers also discovered the name used by the sect for a festival observed four times a year that marked the transition between the seasons - Tekufah. The same word in modern-day Hebrew means "period".

They said they were assisted in deciphering the code by annotations discovered in the margins by a scribe correcting omissions made by the author.

Been all over the local Seattle media all day since 7AM opening, now starting to get picked up nationally like here:

https://slate.com/business/2018/01/will ... -jobs.html

Not letting me copy the text. I'm not really buying the it will cost jobs line. Not in that area of Seattle and the customer base (millennials) it will most likely attract. Will it fly in the blurbs? If AmazonGo stores make it there, I'll check it out for curiosity's sake, but a quick couple of items and maybe some fresh made food to pop in and out without a huge line at the cash register is a plus.

Local take (video at the story), https://www.seattletimes.com/business/a ... nce-store/
We just checked out Seattle’s cashierless Amazon Go convenience store — and it was about as easy and painless as promised.

This prototype convenience store, billed as the first cashier-free shop in the world, has been open to Amazonians for about a year at Blanchard Street and Seventh Avenue.

But on Monday, the store was open to the general public for the first time, and folks were lined up long before the 7 a.m. opening.

We took the store for a spin, and here’s how it worked:

First, you have to download the Amazon Go app and scan your unique code to let yourself in.

Half of the Ten Commandments are solely religious and deal with Man's relationship to his Deity, a Judaeo-Christian fellow. But I suspect Gorsuch, Alito and Thomas would find it's all just historical. Including the rote recitation of all the stuff relating to the demanding Deity. (Roberts would be in their corner if he could figure out the big business angle. Kennedy is a toss up. It depends on how he feels the morning the opinion is released. Unless he gets to write it. Then he's on whichever side will allow him to do so.)

The Ten Commandments are numbered differently by the major Biblical religions - and not at all used by Moslems, Buddhists, and others. Considering what happened when Roy Moore simply put a Ten Commandments monument (that nobody had to read) in front of the courthouse, this Mississippi proposal will not survive long.

Mississippi wants to put the Ten Commandments into its schools .... it has never made much effort to put education into its schools.

Are YouTube's Days Really Numbered?

Over the last 24 hours we've seen numerous complaints from small (and big) YouTube content creators who are upset with the newest updates to the YouTube Partnership Program (YPP). The newest TOS requires a channel to have 4,000 hours of watchtime within the past 12 months and 1,000 subscribers in order to be eligible for monetization. Meanwhile on dtube, content creators are allowed to earn revenue from their videos from day one without meeting any requirements at all. This has forced content creators to make a big decision: Stay with YouTube or join the dtube movement?


https://steemit.com/dtube/@brandonfrye/eakv1nwd
Note: DTube is a fresh platform built around the blockchain concept. Rather than holding Bitcoins in a chain they hold published content. Up and down votes are given or taken in micro amounts of STMs, a curency related to this blockchain. DTube at this time maintains that there will can and will be no censure censorship on the content posted. The future will show how such a non moderated site will take off when the bad guys start their droppings there. By definition of a blockchain it seem s to be impossible to remove offending content.

San Francisco changes Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day
By Stephen Sorace | Fox News

San Francisco supervisors voted Tuesday to swap Columbus Day for Indigenous Peoples Day.

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to rename Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day to honor the Native Americans here before Columbus "discovered” America and who became victims of the country’s subsequent colonization.

Malia Cohen, a member on the board, led the legislation which was voted on 10-to-1 in favor of the change.

In an embarrassing demonstration that she is not ready for prime time, and has Judge-Ito-disease, the trial court judge in the Larry Nassar case is going on and on before sentencing the monster to life.

She needs to STFU and sentence him already.


Edit: ETA: She only gave him 175 years. Not enough.
