Wednesday Reads: Earthquakes, PETA Porn and Rodents of Unusual Size?

I should add uninvited Gay GOP Candidates to the title as well!

Wednesday is upon us yet again, and I have some juicy bits for you today.

First let’s get the “shake your groove thing” out of the way…

Geologist are asking for your help…Did you feel the earthquake that hit the East Coast yesterday? I know we had many readers who did. Help Geologists Track The August 23rd Earthquake: Scientific American Podcast

If you were in any of the affected areas—from Georgia to Toronto and west to Ohio—go to the website of the United States Geological Survey, the USGS. Go to their earthquake page, earthquake.usgs.gov. There you’ll see an item called Did You Feel It?, where you can share your location and your estimate of the strength of the shaking. If like me you didn’t feel anything, enter that too—it’s all valuable.

Your info will help create a Community Internet Intensity Map that can provide important data about the scope of the quake and contribute to ongoing earthquake research. That’s earthquake.usgs.gov

This is a an interesting statistic:  Hillary Clinton: Secretary of Quake? – Political Punch

Since she became America’s top diplomat in early 2009, Secretary Clinton has been on the ground for no fewer than five earthquakes in foreign countries. Last year the Associated Press first chronicled Clinton’s seemingly unlucky habit and deemed her the “Secretary of Quake.”

On her first trip abroad in February 2009 Clinton was shaken awake by an earthquake in Japan. Later that year in June she experienced another while traveling in Honduras with President Obama. In October 2009 there was yet another while she was traveling in Pakistan.

Clinton was on the ground in Papua New Guinea for just a day in November 2010, but that was long enough for a 6.0 magnitude earthquake to strike the island nation, though reporters on the trip say she didn’t feel it. Just days later Clinton was in Christchurch, New Zealand when the city was rocked by a big aftershock from a mammoth earthquake that struck just months earlier.

Clinton had a visit planned to Santiago, Chile when a massive earthquake struck just days in advance. She cut the visit short, staying only a few hours at the airport.

So does today’s 5.9 magnitude earthquake count? The epicenter was in northern Virginia, just 87 miles from her office in Washington, but Clinton is on vacation in New York this week. There are reports, however, that the tremor was felt all the way in Boston so it’s likely Secretary Clinton felt her sixth earthquake in under three years.

Yes, the earth trembles in the shadow of Secretary Clinton…just imagine what the woman could have done with the 112th Congress!

Next we tackle the Gay GOPer who didn’t get asked to the dance, the California GOP Convention dance that is.  Gay candidate can’t get seat at GOP convention

Fred Karger, a longtime political advisor, knows he has no chance of becoming the Republicans’ presidential nominee in 2012, but his goal is to let other homosexuals know it’s OK to be gay and aim high in life. (Bret Hartman/Los Angeles Times/MCT)

Fred Karger, the only Californian – and the only gay candidate – in the 2012 Republican presidential field, says he knows plenty about closed doors. But shut out by his own party – and in his own state?

Even as Republican leaders say they’re eagerly wooing all candidates to the state GOP convention Sept. 16-18 in Los Angeles, Karger says his request to attend and address the party activists has apparently been refused.

“I have been waiting for my invitation and it never came,” Karger, 61, a 38-year resident of Laguna Beach, told The Chronicle last week. “And I called up a couple of weeks ago and explained my position.”

That’s when a party official, Karger said, left a “terse” message: “The schedule is completely filled.”

The man did not even get invited to his own state’s convention…I wonder if they were worried that if they had a “queer” at the event, Bachmann would be too afraid to show up? She is going to be there, in fact she is the keynote speaker.

In other 2012 news, this turd is floating around over at the New York Times:  Why Another Democrat Wouldn’t Do Better Than Obama in 2012 – NYTimes.com

You know that a president is having a rough time when you start to see speculation that his party would be better off if it replaced him on the ticket.

There has been more of this recently: the political scientist Matthew Dickinson argued that Democrats would improve their chances if Hillary Clinton defeated Barack Obama in a primary challenge. The astute Ed Morrissey of the blog Hot Air wondered if Democrats might benefit if Mr. Obama simply declined to run for a second term.

Silver believes that Obama is still popular with the people, even if his policy is not…hack…hack. (Sorry, I choked on my own saliva there…)

Mr. Obama’s approval ratings have slipped now — but so has the national mood, with recent polls suggesting that only about 17 percent of Americans think the country is on the right track. (The number was closer to 30 percent two months ago.) Mr. Obama’s approval ratings, at 40 percent, may not win him re-election — but seem tolerable by comparison.

To be sure, an argument can be made that Mr. Obama himself bears some responsibility for the pessimistic national mood — particularly in recent weeks, as the latest decline in confidence seems to have as much to do with political as economic factors. If nothing else, Mr. Obama has failed so far to persuade voters that America’s best days are ahead of it.

Then again, approval numbers are down for essentially all incumbent politicians. Quite a few Americans have been tolerant of Mr. Obama’s performance despite their concerns about where the country is headed.

Geez, if so many American’s are tolerant of Obama and seem content to keep him in office, then I want to see him out in the real world talking to the people, not doing some photo-op bus tour of towns that are doing fine in this troubled economy.

Relatively few voters blame Mr. Obama personally for the performance of the economy — they’re simply sick and tired of the poor numbers all the same. Another Democratic candidate would not magically turn 9.2 percent unemployment into 5.2 percent unemployment.

Nor is it likely that another Democrat would advocate policy positions that differed substantially from Mr. Obama’s, which are very close to those of the typical Democrat in Congress.

I can’t quote from this post anymore, you can read it all if you like, but damn…am I just overreaching here?

On to something that I sure as hell know I am not getting wrong, so animal rights trump women’s rights:  PETA to launch porn website: Is this still about animal rights? – The Globe and Mail

If there’s one way to get people to adopt a vegan lifestyle, it’s by watching women have sex with veggies , right?

PETA seems to think so.

The animal rights group, known for its naturalist ways, has registered the domain name peta.xxx and plans to launch a pornography website in December that “draws attention to the plight of animals,” according to a report by Reuters.

Exactly how much pornographic material will be featured on the site has not been disclosed yet, but there are reports that beyond scantily clad women fellating phallic vegetables, the site will also offer graphic material of another kind: images of animal cruelty “uncovered by the group’s hidden camera investigations.”

Oh yeah, there is nothing better than  a woman enjoying extra-large cucumbers…while lying next to a starving puppy.

Feminists in particular tend to be up in arms about most of PETA’s work, especially their most recent X-rated adventure. They point out that these animal-rights activists seem to see no harm in sacrificing women’s rights in efforts to push their agenda. Which is not to say that the critics are either anti-animals or anti-sex, but their particular concerns stem from the fact that PETA pushes a very misogynistic version of what sexy is.

“They’re the ones drawing disturbing analogies between pornography, misogyny and animal cruelty,” wrote Lindsay Beyerstein on the blog Big Think.

Ms. Beyerstein points out that with this website, PETA is dropping the pretense that they are simply using sex to draw attention to their cause. Which seems like a convincing argument, especially when the advocacy group uses nudity so frivolously, usually pairing it with displays that dehumanize women.

So lets continue the animal theme, with this next link from the NYT, How Many Species on Earth? It’s Tricky – NYTimes.com

Each year, researchers report more than 15,000 new species, and their workload shows no sign of letting up. “Ask any taxonomist in a museum, and they’ll tell you they have hundreds of species waiting to be described,” says Camilo Mora, a marine ecologist at the University of Hawaii.

Scientists have named and cataloged 1.3 million species. How many more species there are left to discover is a question that has hovered like a cloud over the heads of taxonomists for two centuries.

“It’s astounding that we don’t know the most basic thing about life,” said Boris Worm, a marine biologist at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.

On Tuesday, Dr. Worm, Dr. Mora and their colleagues presented the latest estimate of how many species there are, based on a new method they have developed. They estimate there are 8.7 million species on the planet, plus or minus 1.3 million.

Oof, that is a lot of animals that PETA can get it on with…eek, that was a very loaded statement.

Perhaps this next animal will get the everyone in the mood…to see the movie The Princess Bride:  A gnawing question answered: It’s a capybara roaming Paso Robles – latimes.com

Yes, rodents of unusual size are roaming the wastewater treatment plant in Paso Robles, CA.

A wastewater treatment plant worker’s photos of a ‘weird-looking’ creature go viral on the Internet. Wardens used the pictures to confirm that the animal was an adult capybara, the world’s largest rodent.

Capybara in Paso Robles

Nick Kamp and Craig Rambo were making their rounds at a Paso Robles wastewater treatment plant a few weeks ago when they spotted something definitely out of the ordinary: a wild capybara. The world’s largest rodent is native to South America and usually isn’t found in the United States except in zoos. (Nick Kamp)

The creature eventually swam toward the Salinas River and disappeared from sight, but not before worker Nick Kamp had taken a few photos. He and a co-worker called the California Department of Fish and Game to report what they had seen. Responding wardens used the pictures to confirm that the animal was in fact a capybara — an adult they believe weighs 100 to 120 pounds.

120 pound rodent? Damn…

It turns out the capybara, which is native to South America, is pretty happy at the sewage treatment plant.

“He seemed pretty content,” Kamp said of the creature. “He was pretty happy in there.”

The semiaquatic capybara is the world’s largest rodent and prefers swampy, marshy habitats. It’s illegal to own a capybara as a pet in California, so authorities believe the animal either was released by or escaped from an owner a few years ago and has been roaming Paso Robles ever since.

The article mentions a few other sightings of capybara in California, but there are some states where the capybara population is growing.

No other capybara sightings have been reported in California, Hughan said. The rodents have been spotted in other states over the years. In Florida, sightings are common; some experts believe a wild capybara population exists after a few rodents escaped from a research facility in 2001.

Wardens are prepared to set traps for the Paso Robles capybara, but because the animal appears healthy and isn’t harming the area, the department’s policy is to allow it to remain wild, Hughan said. That could change, he warned, if hunters and trappers go after the animal.

“You can’t hunt that thing,” Hughan said. “If we see people out there with nets and traps trying to catch it, we may take a more aggressive stance for the protection of the animal.”

Wait a minute…rodents escaping from a research facility in Florida?

 

Are these “mutant rodents?”

 

Yes, you want to protect those ROUSes…cause ya know they are harmless.

Okay, so what are you reading about today? Any rats up to no good in your neck of the woods?

    From my Findlaw daily news:

    Administration moves plan to ax hundreds of regs

    VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. (AP) – The White House is revealing plans to save businesses $10 billion by scrapping hundreds of government regulations found to be outdated, unfair or unnecessary.

    Administration officials say the savings will be realized over a five-year period. The plan was described Tuesday by Cass Sunstein, administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, in a column in the Wall Street Journal in advance of a formal announcement as President Barack Obama vacations at Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

    After last year’s election setback, Obama launched a concerted outreach to the business community, vowing to scrutinize federal regulations that companies consider to be an excessive burden. He at the time his goal was to scrap “dumb” rules without weakening ones that are needed to protect consumers and the environment.
    2011-08-23 12:27:30 GMT

    Well, alrighty – wonder if that is the plan to get more jobs – of course these businesses will plow the billions saved back into the business, hire more people……………. scrapping “dumb” rules has been such a great benefit to the banks, er, the consumers….wink, wink. The administration came up this after last year’s election setback. Always thinking of the consumers – keeping them protected and the environment. This administration never strays off course from servicing their constituents – the puppet masters.

    ‘scrapping hundreds of government regulations’ – that sounds so rethug – a CEO’s wet dream.

      When just ignoring the regulations is not enough . Indeed . Perhaps this is part of the Obie job plan we heard about? Sounds like a Repug job plan….if business have less regulations, they will be free to hire more people! ( wink) A variation on the “less taxes means more jobs!” Repug job plan. Just when you think Obama cannot get more Repug, he does. He’s Hyber Repug

      • Minkoff Minx says:

        Well, maybe Obama can ask his best buddy why GE is doing this:
        GE Healthcare cutting 81 jobs – JSOnline

        GE Healthcare Ltd. is cutting 81 jobs at its Milwaukee and Waukesha facilities, or 1.2% of the company’s positions in southeastern Wisconsin, the medical technologies division of the General Electric Co. said Tuesday.

        In response to questions, a GE spokesman said notifications were sent out on Friday and that GE is reducing staff in response to the economic uncertainty in the U.S. and Europe.

        GE, which employs about 6,500 in southeastern Wisconsin, provided few other details.

  3. bostonboomer says:

    Why is the USGS cutting off earthquake reports at Ohio? It was felt here in Muncie. A tall building at Ball State U. shook and swayed. It was felt in 22 states according to the seismic experts at IU. I heard it was felt in Illinois also–and even Minnesota and Michigan!

    • Branjor says:

      Now it’s my turn to say….Wow!

    • Beata says:

      BB, the quake was felt in tall buildings on the IU campus, and at IUPUI in Indy, as well. I read they felt it in South Bend, too. I guess we don’t matter!

          Check it out: Strong East Coast Earthquake Highly Unusual, Scientist Says | FoxNews.com

          “One of this size is highly unusual,” said Karen Fisher, a professor of seismology at Brown University and president-elect of the seismology section at the American Geophysical Union. “This is the largest earthquake by far that I am aware of occurring there in recent history.”

          The quake’s epicenter in central Virginia is in an area the U.S. Geological Survey calls the Central Virginia Seismic Zone, Fisher said by phone from Providence, Rhode Island.

          While the strength of the quake was unusual, the wide spread of the shock waves was common for the East Coast, according to Peggy Hellweg, a research seismologist at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory in California.

          This is largely due to the difference in the terrain, Hellweg said in a telephone interview.

          “Our ground is all of this chopped-up stuff … like a pile of marbles,” Hellweg said of California’s geology, which means that the waves from a quake don’t spread out all that far.

          In the Eastern United States, she said, “What you’ve got there is gorgeous bedrock and … the waves propagate beautifully.”

          Another difference between the East and West U.S. coasts is that the West Coast is over the boundary between two active tectonic plates, the North American and the Pacific, and the force of these plates sliding against each other generates quakes regularly, Fisher said.

          In the East, she said, “There’s no driving engine in terms of the two plates sliding past each other … so that’s why it’s much more unusual.”

    Obama administration moves to quash state investigations of Wall Street banks

    http://tinyurl.com/3ugwrz5

    The New York Times reported Monday that Shaun Donovan, the US secretary of housing and urban development, together with high-ranking Justice Department personnel, has been “waging an intensifying campaign” to persuade Eric T. Schneiderman, the New York attorney general, to drop his opposition to a settlement of the home foreclosure charges.

    Under the proposed settlement, major banks including JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Citigroup and Bank of America, would pay a combined total of $20 billion, which would supposedly go toward home loan modifications and homeowner counseling.

    In return, bank executives would be shielded from possible civil suits or criminal prosecutions arising from state probes into their role in fueling the sub-prime mortgage bubble, whose collapse triggered the financial meltdown of September 2008.

    the chump change figure of 20 Billion seems to be the going rate …for a Gulf and historic crimes

      The storm had maximum sustained winds of 115 mph, and is expected to strengthen further “in the next day or so,” the National Hurricane Center said Wednesday morning.

      “This is a huge storm,” said CNN Meteorologist Jacqui Jeras. “The cloud field is more than 800 miles across. The tropical storm force winds extend out 200 miles from the center.”

      The strengthening, which officially made Irene a major hurricane, came as the storm continued to pound the southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

  10. Delphyne says:

    PETA and Ingrid Newkirk are insane. They are not about animal welfare at all – the kill rates in their “shelters” is in the 90% range. They do not believe that dogs and cats should be companion animals and Ingrid herself said that “euthanasia” is preferable to trying to adopt out healthy animals. Here are a few quotes from her:

    PETA Statements

    “We do not advocate ‘right to life” for animals” – Ingrid Newkirk wrote on a postcard to Nathan Winograd, no-kill shelter consultant and TNR advocate.

    “‘PETA believes euthanasia is the kindest gift to a dog or cat unwanted and unloved.’ – Ingrid Newkirk at a press conference following the arrest of two employees.

    “It is a totally rotten business, but sometimes the only kind option for some animals is to put them to sleep forever,” Newkirk said in a 2000 interview with Matthew Barakat. 1

    “[M]ost of the animals we receive are broken beings for whom euthanasia is, without a doubt, the most humane option.” 1 According to Vet Patrick Proctor, he gave PETA adoptable kittens and a dog that were killed within one hour.

    “This is a good time to revisit a comment from Ingrid Newkirk’s mentor because it puts today’s events in perspective:

    “We are not especially ‘interested in’ animals. Neither of us had ever been inordinately fond of dogs, cats, or horses in the way that many people are. We didn’t ‘love’ animals.” – Peter Singer, acknowledged founder of the animal rights movement.

    • Delphyne says:

      Forgot to add this quote – her words and actions certainly do not match.

      “I am not a morose person, but I would rather not be here. I don’t have any reverence for life, only for the entities themselves. I would rather see a blank space where I am. This will sound like fruitcake stuff again but at least I wouldn’t be harming anything.”
      — Ingrid Newkirk, The Washington Post, Nov 1983

    • WomanVoter says:

      They do not believe that dogs and cats should be companion animals and Ingrid herself said that “euthanasia” is preferable to trying to adopt out healthy animals.

      That is insane indeed, my worker (he was staff, he was on file as staff too) dog/companion/best pal was so dear, so smart and touched so many lives. He was one of a few that had multiple charges (people to assist) and then me (buddies). His quality of life was great, he was so well trained, he served so well, that upon his death this year the hospital donated to the top Uni in his memory.

      We had a crisis (gas explosion next door), he stood with his charge, seeing the others leave and then we evacuated the blind individual to safety. I was trying to put out the flames with a neighbor so our place wouldn’t go up in flames, when I realized he was by my side…then I said we should pull back…he wouldn’t leave me, and brought sense back to me. Some times we get stupid in emergencies and he was there, trying to get me and the neighbor to safety. He was the smarter one in that situation…he died early this year and I haven’t or can’t get the will to train another one, as I am still heart broken even though he was almost sixteen years old, I still had hope of him living longer.

      PETA doesn’t understand the bond between people and their beloved dogs/companions.
