GOOD MORNING ALL cheesy

National Geographic

Giant Squid Could Be Bigger Than a School Bus

The deep-dwelling creatures could reach lengths of at least 66 feet, says a provocative new study—but not everyone is convinced.

By Michael Greshko
PUBLISHED May 27, 2016

If a startling new study is right, giant squid up to 66 feet (20 meters) long may dwell in the open ocean.

The estimate is nearly twice as large as some prior findings, which had pegged the beast’s maximum total length between 33 and 43 feet (10 and 13 meters).

"Lots of people believe all sorts of stuff about giant squids, which actually isn't what the evidence says, [including] that it was the kraken and that it is pretty small,” says Charles Paxton, a statistical ecologist at Scotland’s University of St. Andrews and the study’s sole author.

But Paxton’s results, published on May 17 in the Journal of Zoology, have released a kraken of controversy: At present, there’s no physical evidence that the giant squid (Architeuthis dux) actually gets as large as Paxton is claiming, leading some to doubt the study’s real-world relevance. (See National Geographic's squid pictures.)

“This paper will certainly boost his citation indices, but probably for all the wrong reasons,” wrote giant squid expert Steve O’Shea, who wasn't involved with the study.

Unraveling a Giant

The giant squid, Architeuthis, is among the world’s most captivating and elusive sea creatures. Researchers still don’t know much about its basic biology—including its reproduction, life cycle, and a firm estimate of its maximum size.

“Knowing how big an animal gets seems like such a simple question, and yet for animals that are hard to collect or raise in captivity, like Architeuthis, it’s really quite difficult to say exactly,” writes Liz Shea of the Delaware Museum of Natural History, a mollusk expert who wasn’t involved with the study.

To put Architeuthis to the test, Paxton assembled data from more than a century’s worth of giant squid sightings, beached carcasses, and remains recovered from sperm whale stomachs. He then determined how a squid's length varies the size of its mantle—the muscular cone that makes up much of a squid’s body—and parrot-like beak.

In particular, Paxton focused on a massive giant squid that washed ashore on New Zealand’s Lyall Bay in 1879, reportedly with a mantle more than nine feet (2.7 meters) long, among the largest ever recorded.

Extrapolating from the size trends he found, Paxton calculated that there's a 99.9-percent chance that a squid with a similarly large mantle would be between 19 to 90 feet (5.8 to 27.5 meters) long, from the tip of the mantle to the ends of its tentacles.

Though Paxton says that his upper bound "may be pushing things a little too far," he adds that the statistics conservatively allow for squids at least 66 feet (20 meters) long.

That’s because giant squids may number in the hundreds of thousands—allowing there to be a few exceptionally large individuals, as a matter of probability. (See "Pictures: Giant Squid Get Extreme Plastic Surgery.")

“I knew that there were bona fide squid longer than what the experts said,” says Paxton, who chalks up others’ skepticism to “just bad bookwork on their part.”

'Literature Pollution'

However, experts question Paxton’s use of past literature.

Shea and O’Shea both expressed concerns over the Lyall Bay report’s reliability, noting that its measurement of the squid’s gladius—the structure that supports the mantle—is roughly six feet (two meters) long, three feet shorter than the mantle.

For sure I am glad I am on this part of God's little Green Acres
and not in another corner


Saudi social media has reacted to news of a Saudi man sought by police after he shot and critically wounded an obstetrician who delivered his newborn baby.

The physician, a Jordanian national, was called to intervene in the delivery that had been supervised by a female obstetrician and gone awry.

After saving both the mother and the baby, he was approached by the suspect, who allegedly wanted to thank him. He took him to the garden of the hospital, the King Fahed Medical Center in Riyadh, where he shot him in the shoulder apparently in front of children playing nearby, saying that he had been told that the delivery would be carried out by a woman. The physician was rushed to intensive care.

News of the incident went viral on social media.

“It’s primitive, ignorant and stupid,” Farook tweeted.

@RTarabic الا تخلف و جهل وغباء

— Farooq M. Al-Quraish (@AbuTaloly) May 26, 2016

Mubarak tweeted: “Dear Allah, where is this country heading? From the top of the world to the bottom.”

@RTarabic يا إلهي الي اين تلك الأمة من القمة إلى الحضيض

— Mubarak Baraka (@mubarak_baraka) May 26, 2016

“This problem exists in many Arab countries but in Saudi Arabia it’s ten times worse because women aren’t allowed to work like men,” Ali wrote.

@RTarabic أغلبية المجتمعات العربيه لديها نفس المشكله لكن المشكله أسوأ في السعوديه لأنهم لا يعطون فرصه لنساءهم بالعمل كالرجال

— ali sadek (@AlisadekAli) May 26, 2016

Abu Abbas weighed in: “It’s not jealousy, it’s primitiveness and ignorance and boorishness. Thank Allah for giving us brain.”

@RTarabic هذه ليست غيره بل تخلف وجهل وقلة ثقافه والحمد لله على نعمة العقل

— ابوعباس التميمي (@qwerrewqali7) May 27, 2016

Tareq was reminded of a recent attack on a Christian woman in Egypt, who was beaten and publicly undressed because her son allegedly fell in love with a Muslim woman.

“A Saudi man shoots an obstetrician who delivered his child and removed his wife’s veil,” he tweeted. “In Egypt a woman is undressed and her house set ablaze because her son fell in love with a Muslim.”

اخبار:سعودي يطلق النار على طبيب لانه اجرى عملية ولادة على زوجته وكشف حجابها.اما في مصر تعرية سيدة مسيحية وحرق بيتها لان ابنها حب بنت مسلمة.😳

— طارق السعدي (@tarek_oo7) May 26, 2016

He then continued: “The nice thing is that everybody wonders where IS emerged from??!”

@tarek_oo7 لا .. والأظرف من هيك بيسألوا حالهم لحد الآن وباستغراب : من أين أتت داعش ؟!!

— j.alashkar (@j_alashkar) May 26, 2016

One commenter said that he should be executed in the scene of the crime. “It should set an example. If he gets off, we’ll see more of these instances.”

@an7a_com هذا يجب قتله في المكان الذي اطلق النار به ليكون عظه وعبره وان تم السكوت عليه فسنرى تكرار هذي الحاله

EPA Climate Expert and Scammer Considered By some A Legend



http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2016/05/jw-gets-records-showing-epa-gave-convicted-climate-expert-service-salary-awards-defrauded-agency/


The senior Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official who scammed the agency out of nearly $1 million in pay without working got service and salary awards throughout his lengthy career as a climate policy expert, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. His name is John Beale and he’s on the verge of completing a 32-month prison sentence for defrauding the government by claiming, while employed at the EPA, to be a “secret agent” for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and going on long vacations that he said were CIA missions.

While he committed the fraud the EPA regularly rewarded him with “Special Act or Service Awards” that included cash and time off, the records obtained by JW reveal. From 1991 through 1998 Beale received thousands of dollars in bonuses for his performance as well as a “Time Off Award” in 1998, the records show. In 2001 he was rewarded yet again with a promotion to work at the White House as a “Senior Policy Advisor.” It’s not like Beale was a lowly employee at the EPA. He was a senior level official who actually worked in the agency’s most powerful office, Air and Radiation (OAR), under President Obama’s current EPA Administrator, Gina McCarthy.

OAR is feared by American companies because it develops polices and regulations associated with climate change air pollution that can impose huge costs to both consumers and businesses. McCarthy headed OAR from 2008 to 2013 when Beale was a high-ranking senior policy adviser, which means the EPA Administrator directly managed him at the time. Beale also defrauded the agency by receiving unlawful reimbursements for upscale personal travel, claiming to be away working for the CIA for 2 ½ years while he collected EPA paychecks and continuing to collect his full government salary years after officially retiring from the agency.

A U.S. Senate investigation blasted McCarthy, his boss at the time at OAR, for not taking action for months after learning that Beale committed fraud. “On March 29, 2012, an OAR official raised concerns about Beale’s retirement when he informed McCarthy that Beale was still on payroll,” the Senate report states. “Despite being aware of the fact that one of her subordinates was collecting a paycheck without providing any work product, this arrangement continued for seven more months before McCarthy ever contacted Beale.” In December 2012, McCarthy met with Beale for the first time in nearly 15 months
and he told her he was no longer planning to retire. Beale wasn’t reported to the EPA Inspector General for another two months and, though McCarthy had cause to fire him, she let him retire voluntarily with full benefits. Remember, this is the woman who runs the agency now.

On August 23, 2013, the Department of Justice (DOJ) filed criminal charges against Beale and a year later he was convicted of fraud and stealing $900,000 from the government. He’s on the verge of completing a 32-month sentence in a federal prison in Cumberland, Maryland. The Senate investigation determined that his actions, not only disgraced the agency, but also raised questions about its management and oversight abilities. In fact, despite Beale’s decades-long history of fraud and deceit many of his EPA colleagues refuse to view him as a criminal and even submitted letters to the court requesting leniency during his sentencing. “These officials’ reaction to the scandal suggests that an individual can steal a million dollars from taxpayers and perpetrate a crime for nearly two decades, but still be considered — by some — as an environmental legend,” the Senate report states.

Caregiver accused of trying to murder WWII veteran with oxygen tank

By Michael Scott Davidson
Published: Friday, May 27, 2016 at 10:48 a.m.

NORTH PORT - As a staff sergeant flying in bombing raids over Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II, Michael Nicholas Tristano flirted with death on a recurring basis.

The former ball-turret gunner cheated the reaper again last week, but instead of dodging German anti-aircraft guns' flak from inside a B-17 “Flying Fortress” bomber, police say the 91-year-old veteran survived a savage attack inside his North Port home by the caregiver entrusted with his welfare.

Police say Tristano's caregiver, whom he had known for at least a decade, clubbed him in the head multiple times with an aluminum oxygen tank and left him on the floor of his home to die on the night of May 15.

But Tristano's will to live was too strong. Police say the caretaker, Elena Erickson, 45, of North Port, called paramedics to Tristano's house on White Ibis Drive the next day shortly after 8 a.m. Tristano was treated at Venice Regional Bayfront Health and is now recovering at home.

Erickson told first responders she found Tristano lying in a pool of blood and urine near his dining room table. She said she hadn't been at the home since 10:30 p.m. the previous night.

Detectives searched the home and found no signs of forced entry. They did, however, find a bloodied portable oxygen tank.

On May 20, Tristano was in good enough health to speak with the detectives. He said that the night he was attacked, he and Erickson were arguing about her payment.

Tristano told detectives that at about 9:30 p.m., Erickson struck him in the head twice with the oxygen tank while he was sitting at the dining room table.

The two wrestled over the tank and Tristano received more wounds to his wrist and forearms.

Tristano said he sat back down at the dining room table while Erickson attempted to clean up his blood with paper towels for about an hour. She refused to let him leave the table, and at 10:30 p.m., he said she struck him two more times with the oxygen tank.

Tristano fell to the floor and began to drift in and out of consciousness. He said Erickson finally left sometime between 5 and 6 a.m., before returning to the home a few hours later to call 911.

Detectives interviewed Erickson on Tuesday and found probable cause to charge her with attempted murder and tampering with evidence. She has been in Sarasota County jail since Thursday on $300,000 bail.

“The North Port Police Department considers crimes against children and the elderly to be some of the most severe,” city spokesman Josh Taylor said. “The public should know these types of crimes come with increased penalty enhancements. In this particular case, Erickson could receive up to life behind bars.”

According to Don Moore, a local reporter who writes about veterans living in and near Charlotte County, Tristano served as a waist gunner and ball-turret gunner during World War II.

He flew 35 combat missions in a B-17 bomber beginning in January of 1945. After the war, Tristano graduated from New York University, he went into the food service business and moved to Florida in 2000, Moore reported.
