Paying for these innovations to be adapted and diffused into mainstream plays--- in this era of high debt and dollar clogging--- remains to be seen. But hope springs eternal.

Speaking of hope---- i posted this as the first post to die on the last thread and offer it here....

I keep seeing stories about fusion coming sooner than had been thought, like this one:

Of course it's the Grauniad, so who knows.

Schwarzenegger on Big Oil Murder allegation:

“The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because of fossil fuels, and on top of it that it would be risky for people’s lives, that it would kill,” Schwarzenegger said at a Politico-sponsored event at the SXSW Festival over the weekend in Austin, Texas. “If you walk into a room and you know you’re going to kill someone, it’s first-degree murder. I think it’s the same thing with the oil companies.”

That bombastic nugget he uttered at the South by Southwest Liberal Fascisti festival (taken over) and covered by fascist organ Politico.

Kev,

Steroids seem to be part of the equation, if you ask me.

Now that I think of it, KK, that group might top both the US Office of Naval Research Global and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency in coming up with energy solutions! I stand corrected!

Sort of funny about Mr. Steroids and his allegations of murder. That he used to jet between Santa Monica and SacTown every day must have been conveniently forgotten.

Narciso,

Your comment earlier on ODESSA made me wonder if you had seen that Bob Baer series on History Channel called "Hunting Hitler"?

The series made me think the SS rat lines to South America were even larger than we'd initially thought and better funded.

fdcol63 🇺🇸

True, I don't think they even mentioned Farago in the series, although much of their own research seemed to mirror his.

But, even if you discount the question of whether Adolf made it out of the bunker, it seems that there was even a larger exodus of SS after the war than I at first thought, with an organized plan to carry on operations after the war.

At least until the old SS leadership croaked and their South American abetters like Peron, Stroessner, Pinochet et al lost power.

Here's my vaguely non sequitur anecdote about post-WWII Nazi activity. I went to Bora Bora in 1977, and rented a fishing boat complete with captain and crew to take us around the island in expectations of catching some great fish (we caught none). The captain, a pudgy German fellow, revealed to me that he was SS during the war, and actually said that he was "just following orders". He was a nice enough guy.

I only watch Fox and Friends streaming and maybe the next show, unless there is an event. As far as I am concerned, the entire afternoon is wasted, You have ultra-Bushie Perino followed by the loathsome Shepherd Smith (whom I thought should have been fired afterhis hysterical performance during Hurricane Katrina so I have hated him for a LONG time) and then Cavuto comes on with passive-aggressive crap about Trump, and then The Five, where I often have either Marie Harf or Juan Williams inflicted upon me.

It's just not worth watching to me.

Off topic, I wonder how Otto Warmbier's family feels about all this Kim Jong-Un news. Trump has been very supportive (unlike Obama), with the parents attending the SOTU, and going to the Olympics, which apparently angered Rocket Man.

Last night’s Trump rally proved again that vulgar antics thrill his base. The office hasn’t made the man; instead, Trump has re-made the office, lowering standards of acceptable presidential behavior so far that it will take great efforts by his successors to repair the damage.

Is the "damage" the strong economy, the success against ISIS, the qualified judges, the reduced regulations, the high business confidence, the better trade deals, or the coming success with North Korea? It sounds awful. I hope we can fix all of that.

Now I'm not suggesting that anybody should watch porn flicks. But if you Google up a Stormy Daniels porn flick, you can see that she is a quite enthusiastic (not to say very noisy) performer.

And yes is she had videos of her "encounters" with The Trumpster--taken some 12 years back when she wasn't so long in the tooth, She's 39 or 40 now---she's reached a point in her "career" where she'll have to wait 10 or 12 years before she can appear in "granny porn".

But just saying if she has a "sex tape" with The Donald, all five of those CNN reporters would shoot their grandma for a chance to air it on national TV. Finally we will find out whether Donald has a bad case of smallcox to go with his small hands.

The agreement--that she now wants to break--supposedly has a penalty of $1 million if she talks. She says that 10 people (probably all members of the Democrat National Committee) have offered to pay the $1 million penalty for her.

I'd simply observe that a good attention whore stays bought.

pagar: what brand and how much of the stuff do you eat per week or on average at one sitting?

some brands and processes are healthier than others. amount consumed is everything. Food combinations with a rapid absorption carb like grains can help slow "uptake."

I ate oatmeal once per week during post-op recovery. Fibrous steel cut oats.

My permanent oatmeal and granola substitute recipe:

Grind 1/2 cup in a clean coffee bean grinder or spice mill of--- (all organic)

dried coconut flakes
raw sunflower seed
raw punkin seed
raw flax (blonde or brown no diff)
raw pecan (these will remain chunky--- no worries)

in sauce pan: bring 1/2 cup non-vegetable oil to low heat. (We use real olive oil--- California Farms, organic non-GMO)

Add sweetener of choice: honey works well; I need to stick to Xylitol (measures and tastes just like sugar--- without aftertaste)--- to taste.

Pinch of your favorite salt.

3 drops of vanilla extract (organic non-GMO)

Add ground mix slowly, stirring over low heat.

Stir into the mix, 2 cups of organic coconut-almond milk blend.

Makes three breakfasts worth. High in omega threes (flax) and plant protein (punkin seeds).

You can add cinnamon and get that Cinn-a-bon effect when you substitute Smart Balance butter substitute for the olive or non-vegetable oil.

And once it's in the bowl, I add slightly heated Coconut-Almond milk.

YUM. I don't miss oatmeal one bit. Always grind ahead so I can whup it up in five minutes.

Chow!

Kev

PS: Having some bacon with your oatmeal will slow the carbo uptake process to prevent unnecessary blood glucose spikes....oatmeal and toast? a no-no for me--- a time-honored breakfast food in my youth. Oy!

In the car my wife mused on hearing the latest about Trump and the porn babe what I think about having a president who is said to have cheated on a wife long before he ran for office.

To which I said "I think about it not at all".

And she asked "don't you expect more from your President?

To which I listed Obama and his trainer, Hillary and Huma, Bill getting Monicas in the Oval Office, and of course JFK doing every bimbo in DC in Jackie's own bed.

She changed the subject.

Jack is Back!

Haven't even tried to read the full thread but we are experience a little trauma here right now.

We just a mail notice from the Bishop of Rockville Center that they are shutting Frederick's high school, Bishop McGann-Mercy Diocesan High School down the end of this academic year. Recommending we go to St. John the Baptist in West Islip, an hour drive for me.

I have no idea how St. John's will be able to handle 300+ students added to their roster. Well, not really 300, since a lot of parents will opt for local public high schools and even other Catholic HS but much further away. Of course, its about money. $16 million total Diocesan subsidy as enrollment declines. I know all about this from my time as President of the School Board in Florida.

Frederick is devastated and had to shut down the Thorium Reactor because he doesn't think under his current stress he can adequately control it. Now we have to figure out where and when. No Latin at St. John's but they have French and Italian. Since Mrs. JiB is fluent in both that maynot be a bad idea to study one or the other.

Still trying like hell to digest all this since they are making all kinds of Capital improvments at the school but they are going to shut it down? Strange unless they didn't want to telegraph the bad news.

A little gloomy here right now.

I can only dream of the silence were Hillary already in jail.

If it's true that Sessions isn't playing games, I think we can expect some of the perps to lash out before going down. Maybe not her but some of the others like tough-guy Brennan, for example.

Btw, have we heard a peep out of Eric Schmidt, who recently resigned as CEO of Google/Alphabet for no apparent reason? Strange how quiet that whole thing was, isn't it?

How many mysterious resignations so far? Him, Tony Podesta, who else? Was Immelt's resignation expected? I know he ran GE into the dirt, but he seemed to be riding high with Obama in office.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

Are they doing the improvements to sell the facility? If so, how much does the diocese expect to make with the sale AT THE EXPENSE OF THE STUDENTS? (Channeling my inner GUS here.)

I am so sorry for Frederick. When I was his age they split the township into 2 Middle Schools and it was traumatic for us, too, and that certainly isn't as bad as closing.

You could encourage him to start a group of alumni from the closed school which could get together periodically, regardless of where they end up going to school

Extraneus

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/house-republicans-say-no-evidence-of-trump-russia-collusion-end-probe-2018-03-12

Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee said late Monday they had found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, and announced an end to their investigation. "We found no evidence of collusion. We found perhaps some bad judgment, inappropriate meetings," said Rep. Michael Conaway of Texas, according to the New York Times. Conaway said that while there was evidence that Russia meddled in the election and will likely do so again, "We disagree with the narrative that they were trying to help Trump."

That conclusion is contrary to what U.S. intelligence agencies believe. [Er, agencies cannot have beliefs.] The announcement is likely to be sharply rebutted by Democrats on the panel, who have complained the House investigation was hindered by partisanship. Democrats will not be given a draft of the investigation's conclusion until Tuesday morning. The announcement has no effect on special counsel Robert Mueller's separate probe.

MarketWatch seems a bit left-leaning from the tone of that.

Buckeye

Would that be the House Intelligence Committee that has no power to prosecute anyone?

Good to hear, but not nearly as good as hearing the Special Council is throwing in the towel.
