crivens not again

Oh joy. It’s snowing again.

Forecast is for the snow to continue at least until dawn. I have no idea how much we’ll get this time. Half a foot maybe? An inch? Bleh.

update, many hours later ...
And it’s over. A mere 2”, just enough to keep the old snow from looking stale. Nice fine stuff that makes a good dense layer. We’ll let it settle in with a mercury dip tonight that just might touch the single digits, then rally for some “big heat” tomorrow when we hit a sweltering 24 ( -4° C). Where did I put that SPF 50 suntan lotion??

I’ve been reading all about that Bili-Uele mega-chimpanzee population thingy in the news. Aka the Bondo Mystery Apes. Turns out, like most news, that this is nothing new ... these giant chimps have bee known about for at least 120 years now. Still, deepest darkest Africa. But hey, evolution in action: animals will evolve to fill every niche. No gorillas in their area, so the chimps have grown huge: 5’7” with extreme jaw muscles. Genetically they’re still this one kind of chimpanzee, but this extensive breeding group has developed several significant physical differences. Enough that they were thought to be gorillas 100 years ago. They do live somewhat like gorillas, and seem nearly as bold as men. I had to read several articles before I understood that the thousands of apes in their culture weren’t part of some chimpanzee rain forest proto city-state. They aren’t, but the Bili are the dominate species in the area, and they run patrols to keep other competing animals out. Like leopards and lions, which they capture and eat.

It’s like Twelve Centuries Before Eden. All that’s missing is that moment when God puts in the next spark of even higher cogitation, communication,and self-awareness. Or when some great big black slab shows up, accompanied by ominous yet thrilling orchestral music.

News!!

Huge chimpanzee population thriving in remote Congo forest
Scientists believe the group is one of the last chimp ‘mega-cultures’, sharing a unique set of customs and behaviour

In one of the most dangerous regions of the planet, against all odds, a huge yet mysterious population of chimpanzees appears to be thriving – for now. Harboured by the remote and pristine forests in the north of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and on the border of the Central African Republic, the chimps were completely unknown until recently – apart from the local legends of giant apes that ate lions and howled at the moon.



yeah, but OLDS!!

Until quite recently, even amid the many remote regions of darkest Africa, the possibility of an unknown form of anthropoid existing there yet still eluding scientific recognition seemed ludicrous - but then came the Bili (aka Bondo) ape.

The saga of this remarkable, highly controversial primate began more than a century ago, when in 1898 a Belgian army officer returned home from what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo with some gorilla skulls obtained by him in a forested region near the village of Bili, on the Uele River in northern Congo’s Bondo area - even though no other gorillas had been found within hundreds of miles of Bili before (or since).



Or at least not new news!

Elusive African Apes: Giant Chimps or New Species?
John Roach for National Geographic News April 14, 2003

A mysterious group of apes found in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo in central Africa has scientists and conservationist scratching their heads. The apes nest on the ground like gorillas but have a diet and features characteristic of chimpanzees.
...
Local hunters in the region added to the mystery when they told Ammann and his colleagues about two kinds of chimpanzees in the region. Normal chimps, so-called “tree-beaters,” are easily killed with poisonous arrows when they feed in trees.

Another, large chimpanzee seldom climbs trees and does not succumb to the poison arrows shot by the hunters. Called “lion killers,” these big chimpanzees flee through the thick forest and disappear when shot at by hunters.

Evidence for these giant chimpanzees collected by Ammann includes a photograph of a cadaver alongside the hunter that killed it and casts of some large footprints. The pronounced ridge, called a sagittal crest, on the skull that Ammann found in 1996 is thought to be formed to support large jaw muscles, an indication of large body size.

“Giant chimpanzees occasionally occur here and there in the central and eastern subspecies, but evidence so far indicates that Karl [Ammann] may have a population of giants in his area,” said Groves. “Presumably their giantism is relevant to their ground nesting behavior.”

This group of what appear to be a distinct culture of ground-nesting chimpanzees is the now focus of Ammann’s research. “Work has started on habituating one of the ground nesting chimp groups. This is done by provisioning them with sugar cane,” he said.

Sounds kinda pervy. They’re going to observe this culture by modifying their behavior by turning them into sugar junkies? “habituating”? sounds a bit twisted.



But wait, it’s NEW news on the Samizdat wavelengths; one paper runs it, so all the others chime in!

Researchers in Africa have discovered a huge population of ‘unusually large’ chimps who feast on leopards and giant snails in what is being described as the continent’s ‘last untouched wilderness’.

The previously unknown ‘mega-culture’ was found in the heart of the Bili-Uele forest in the Democratic Republic of Congo by researchers, who trekked thousands of miles dodging armed police and militia to get there.

And they were stunned to see the chimps eating leopard and huge African snails, whose shells they pound open on rocks. ‘We estimate many thousands of individuals, perhaps tens of thousands.’

Unique customs and behaviour across a vast area of 19,000sq miles were recorded by a series of motion-activated cameras.

Gangs of males were seen patrolling their territory and mothers showed their young how to use tools to eat swarming insects.

The camera traps also revealed an extraordinary range of other forest dwellers, including forest elephants, olive baboons, spotted hyena as well as red river and giant forest hogs, crested guinea fowl and aardvark.
...
Hicks’s team first identified the existence of the Bili-Uele chimps in 2007 but their new survey, published this week in the journal Biological Conservation, reveals a vast, thriving mega-culture.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bili_Ape
http://www.wasmoethwildlife.org/index.php
http://www.awf.org/projects/bili-uele-chimp-survey

But it doesn’t really matter whether this is new news or old nrews or even recycled ancient old news. This is knowledge out of deepest darkest Africa, which often needs to be taught time after time until people can hear. Isolated chimps become the dominant species in their area. They change their behavior. They grow considerably bigger as a group, across generations, yet no “official” DNA changes have been found. They change their diet. And it looks like we have no real idea how intermeshed their “culture of tens of thousands” really is. Fascinating.

american military and minority religions

OK bmews .... whatcha think of this?

I’ll have to be honest and confess, I really don’t know what to think.  It’s like, is this going to be one of those slippery slopes we read about so often and hear mentioned in interviews?
If the military must make (reasonable) allowances for minority religions and foreign customs, doesn’t it leave itself open in the future for new religions or old ones it today has not heard of? 

Truth to tell ... I’ve finally come around to the attitude that, heck. Doesn’t affect me and nothin’ I could do about it if it did, so just ignore it. At my age with whatever time is left to me, I have other things to be worried about.  I was never even comfortable with those new style berets I see the military wear btw.
They look too European for my taste, and I think they were originally designed by one or more artsy-fartsy fags.


Pentagon Eases Rules on Turbans, Beards in Military

By Robert Longley

The Department of Defense has issued new regulations allowing members of the military who follow minority religions to outwardly display signs of their beliefs, such as turbans and beards, as long as they do not interfere with military readiness, mission or discipline.

According to a Pentagon press release, requests for religious accommodation, while considered on a case-by-case basis, will usually be denied only if officials decide the item being worn or displayed:

Impairs the safe and effective operation of weapons, military equipment or machinery;
Poses a health or safety hazard to the service member wearing the religious apparel;
Interferes with the wear or function of special or protective clothing or equipment such as helmets, flak jackets, flight suits, camouflaged uniforms, protective masks, wet suits and crash and rescue equipment; or
Otherwise impairs the accomplishment of the military mission.

“Each request must be considered based on its unique facts, the nature of the requested religious accommodation, the effect of approval or denial on the service member’s exercise of religion, and the effect of approval or denial on mission accomplishment, including unit cohesion,” stated a Pentagon spokesman quoted in a press release.

According to the new directive, “the importance of uniformity and adhering to standards, of putting unit before self, is more significant and needs to be carefully evaluated when considering each request for accommodation.”

The directive also spells out criteria for evaluating “hair,” “grooming,” and “religious body art,” including tattoos and piercings as valid expressions of “sincerely held beliefs,” that cannot used as a reason for discipline or other “adverse personnel action.”

In addition, the new directive specifies that service members are free to not observe any religion at all.

“The Department of Defense places a high value on the rights of members of the military services to observe the tenets of their respective religions and the rights of others to their own religious beliefs,” said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Nathan J. Christensen in a statement, “including the right to hold no beliefs.”

While members of the U.S. military are not required to declare any specific religious affiliation, Department of Defense statistics show that about 3 service members have self-declared themselves as Sikh Americans, 6,300 as Buddhists, 3,700 as Muslims and 1,500 as Wiccans.

it’s said this is the worst in more than 200 years.

‘Chris Smith is a coward, a little git and I’ll flush his head down the loo’:

Tory MP’s extraordinary attack on Environment Agency boss as he arrives to see flood-hit families in Somerset

The Labour peer, who has faced criticism for the quango’s decision to stop dredging rivers in flood-prone area, was today meeting residents in Somerset, many of whom have called for him to resign.

By Luke Salkeld and Jason Groves and Ray Massey and James Rush and Matt Chorley

So what’s that all about?

Well, it is my understanding that areas have not been dredged as they had been, because the agency that sees to things, or doesn’t as in this case, did no dredging because ….
It was feared the dredging would disturb the birdies.
I didn’t make that up.
Heard on the radio last night, and it’s what ppl are talking about today.

Now then having said that, the chairman of the agency is Labour Party, which you should know is left wing and so no surprise about watching out for the birds and all that. BUT … the truth is, I really don’t know if that’s the whole truth and nothing but because …. it’s conservatives who are making noise and that’s probably, it has been suggested, the right trying to make gains because there is an important election in 2015.
That’s what I have heard and read.

Wife and I fortunate so far, that the biggest part of the storm which did damage in this area, was not near as bad as in other parts of the country.

And ….

Another storm, more rain, more wind due by Sunday, with rain starting tonight here.

The winds have already started to kick up a fuss.  The rain is bad enough but .... it’s always the wind the most worrisome .

A few shots of a tamer nature ... see the links.

Nope I was wrong

I’m still not well, and today was not a good day for me. There are times when I just can’t breathe, even though I can inhale and exhale all day. Not much air goes in or out I guess. Oh well. Back to the doctor I suppose.

Anyway, I saw this one ..

and thought, hey, isn’t that Allison Scagliotti?

but it turned out to be Hayley Williams instead.

Hey, at least I didn’t think it was April Bowlby.

my brief visit for an x-ray

MY DAY FOR AN X-RAY or …

The Student

If I said, you ain’t gonna believe this, you would after reading what happened today when I went for an x-ray.  If you’ve paid any attention to what I’ve posted about immigration and the type of, well …. yeah. You’d believe.

It all started over a week ago, made an appointment to see the doc today, which was as soon as an appointment became available, and he thought I should have an x-ray of my right hip. Even though that place isn’t the origin of the pain. Whatever.  There’s a problem.  So he sent me to the x-ray place at the hosp.

You go into the waiting area after checking in at the counter, and your attention is arrested by a short notice apologizing for the extra wait, due to one x-ray room “is out of service at this time”. So you sit down and after awhile someone comes out and calls names from their list, and you’re invited to walk down a short corridor where, over there on the left, is another waiting room where once again you wait until your number is up.  Haha, I make joke.  Well not exactly. You wait till your name is called and are brought into the room where the x-ray machine is.

Lets for a second go back to the first waiting room cause when I was called is where it really starts.

This African who couldn’t pronounce my name to save his life, and what a gem he was, motions me in a hap-hazard sort of way to the next waiting place.  Had I not been there before, I really would not have known exactly where his hand wave was directing me to. 

So there I am in waiting room 2, and being prepared, I had brought a magazine with me. Before too long our African acquaintance whose English skill is not quite what I want in a hospital setting, shows me into the room and discovers that my belt has metal and informs me that I should change out of my pants.  He really didn’t appear to be too swift.  In the past, the person who escorts patients from the check in area to the actual x-ray waiting room, always told folks to remove any metal, and showed us where the dressing rooms are, and how to use the double gowns.  OK so I already knew, but that isn’t the point. 

This guy was clueless and here he is, not employed as I thought he was, which is to say a janitor in a uniform, but someone who was going to be involved in my x-ray.  When he suggested to me that I needed to change I couldn’t resist asking him, “where do I do that?” Once again he waved his hand in the general direction and said, “out there”.  When I returned to the room, he directed me to the table, no I think it’s called a gurney.  Well anyway you lay down on this thing and he tries to adjust things and he’s trying without any success to find exactly where my hips are so the picture can be taken.

And here’s where I’m losing patience.

Jab, jab, jabjabjab.  Hey. What’s with this poking me in the hips.
So I told him I had this kind of X-ray before, and nobody poked me that much.

The actual technician in charge, the lady behind the glass with the control panel came out, and very quietly asked me to move and very gently felt where my hip bone was resting. Almost ready for the picture except for one itty-bitty thing.
Oh she says to what I now realize is someone in training, look she tells him.  “You put the film plate in backwards”.

“AGAIN!”

You could not make it up.

welcome to loony tune news

I suppose reading this will cause many to use very descriptive words with regard to the cop in question here.
Not that it wouldn’t be earned.  But .... I blame him a lot less than I do the loopy left libtards who have cursed the culture of both our countries, UK and USA, with political correctness. And not only us.  Half of Europe I think must be living under that curse as well.
You can’t really blame (ok you can to a degree ) this guy for trying to milk a system that has declared itself an open target.  A system that that has bent over begging, screw me, screw me!  Don’t stop.  So heck .... he has taken the system up on the offer.
Maybe he won’t get anywhere with this, but the fact that it has gone this far says worse things about the system then it does about the guy who will try and work it to his advantage.  After all, he has an invite to the party.

Take a look.

ROMANY PC SUES FORCE FOR USING THE WORD, ‘TRAVELLER’

A speed enforcement officer is suing his force for racial discrimination after claiming his colleagues routinely described Romany people as “travellers”.
image

Speed enforcement officer Jim Davies - who is an English born Romany - told an employment tribunal that he was offended by the term.

He was also upset that some officers referred to Romanies as ‘pikeys’.  He also says that there have been countless times over his 20 years that other (real ) policemen have aimed insults at travellers.

His claim is that the word traveller - which is used to describe people living on traveller sites, is used regardless of their ethnicity.

A spokesman for the force argues says that the word traveller has been used to refer to a community rather than an ethnicity.

Our robo-cop here however says traveller term has been institutionalized, and he has pointed his grubby finger at 9 specific officers and accused them of racism for making derogatory remarks.

For the complete and unedited version you may want to read it.  here

ridiculed by colleagues and forced to resign, gets $700,000 payout

Extreme weather continues, lots more flooding in other parts of the country. Cold and wet and high winds again but fortunately, no floods in this general area.

Going back at least 11 months for this. Maybe you remember the video. ??

Well, just to recap briefly.  The old boy driving the car, claimed that the reason he did not stop when he noticed the flashing blue lights, was because he thought cops were after someone else as he was driving, he claimed, the correct limit.  So cop car finally gets him to stop and one cop especially loses it and trashes the old man’s car.  So why is it news 11 months later?

Here’s why.

In American dollars that works out to:  $702,461.81

My £430,000 payout is massive - but I DESERVE it’: Ex-policeman ‘ridiculed out of job’ over internet video of him smashing up pensioner’s Range Rover says attack was ‘not over the top’

PC Mike Baillon and a colleague were filmed using truncheons on windows of Range Rover in 2009 and clip was watched 30million times online
They had pursued the car after the driver, 74, made off from earlier stop
Mr Baillon won the six-figure sum from Gwent Police for loss of his pension
He accepted that the figure was ‘an awful lot’, but defended his conduct
Said the footage is ‘shocking’ but ‘perfectly acceptable’ in context
Added he will never be policeman again, and that new business is struggling

By Kieran Corcoran

The police officer who was awarded a £430,000 payout after he was filmed smashing a pensioner’s car window with a metal baton has conceded that the award is a ‘massive’ amount of money.

PC Mike Baillon, 47, who served with Gwent Police as a traffic officer, became a viral sensation after a two-minute clip of the incident was uploaded to the internet.

He said that he was ridiculed by colleagues following the incident and was forced to resign after senior officers removed him from frontline duties.

Mr Baillon can be seen in the footage hitting the window of a Range Rover 15 times at the conclusion of a 17-minute police chase, while a colleague stood on the car’s bonnet and kicked in its windscreen.

The driver, 74-year-old stroke victim Robert Whatley, has since described the payout as ‘totally unreasonable’.

Speaking today in the wake of the tribunal ruling, against which Gwent Police appealed unsuccessfully, Mr Baillon admitted that the lump sum was ‘an awful lot of money’, but less than he would have been able to earn as a serving officer.

He said: ‘It’s a lot of money, but when you consider that that’s ten years net salary, it’s about seven years of gross salary and then there’s no pension.

It goes nowhere near to replacing what I would have had had I been allowed to carry on in my job’, he told Radio 5 live.

Justifying the huge payout, which is mainly to replace his pension, he said: ‘A police pension is a very valuable asset to a police officer – we pay a lot of money into it and equally we get a lot of money out of it.

‘And in order to try and replace that with a private pension is nigh on impossible.

‘For the figure of £429,000 they had actuaries work out what sum I would need to invest today to achieve the same benefits to what I would have had on my date of retirement, had I been allowed to carry on through the police.

bent but not yet broken

The big storm seems to be over for now. Everything has a thick rime of ice on it, but so far no trees or branches or wires have come down. Bent, yes. Hanging down to the ground, yes. But not broken. Not yet.

We might have lucked out and had a few hours of warmer when it wasn’t storming to melt things off a bit before it gets cold tonight. So we’re catching a break for once I think. Fine by me. I’d be perfectly happy to wake up tomorrow back in the Bahamas and realize the last 90 days have been a bad dream.

bowling blues and more snow

We got beat soundly, mostly, at Greed League. We played the ace “management” team, and they were just effing with us tonight. We had a 120 pin handicap, and the beat us by 257 in the first game. Then they didn’t even bother bowling hardly, so we got the second game by 112. Then, seeing that we were bowling as good as we could, they hung out in the third game until the 7th frame, then came back with almost nothing but strikes (24 out of 30 balls) to smack us by 49. Hey, I threw Ok. 159, 220, 224 for a 603. Good series for me but I wish I could have found the groove faster in game 1.

I got up a little while ago ... terrible claustrophobic nightmare. In the navy no less. Dreams can be so vivid, so strange.

And of course, it’s snowing again. Schools were closed for tomorrow by this morning; after getting around a foot dumped on us Monday, we’re getting another hit Wednesday. Ice this time, on top of the bough-bending heavy stuff that just fell yesterday. It started coming down a bit after midnight I think. Ack. More snow. No no no no no!!

* TIMING… SNOW, SLEET AND FREEZING RAINS WILL OVERSPREAD THE REGION OVERNIGHT AND MAY FALL HEAVY AT TIMES. THE PRECIPITATION WILL CHANGE TO ALL FREEZING RAIN LATE TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY MORNING. THE PRECIPITATION SHOULD TAPER OFF DURING WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

* IMPACTS… DANGEROUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS DUE TO SNOW COVERED ROADS AND REDUCED VISIBILITY LATE TONIGHT AND WEDNESDAY. THE ACCUMULATION OF SNOW IN ADDITION TO SIGNIFICANT ICING WILL BRING DOWN TREE LIMBS AND POWER LINES… RESULTING IN POWER OUTAGES. BE PREPARED TO LOSE POWER. THE WEDNESDAY MORNING COMMUTE WILL BE GREATLY IMPACTED.

* WINDS… NORTHEAST 5 TO 15 MPH WITH GUSTS UP TO 20 MPH.

* TEMPERATURES… AROUND 30.

I wanna kick Algore right inna nutz. twice. damn his global warming shiz. At least it’s warmed up nearly to freezing.

I wasnt Kidding

New Jersey cooperated with the weather, heating up for the warmest two days we’ve had since before Christmas. So now all the Super Bowl people have gone home, and we can get back to sub-freezing temps and another snow storm.

image

Looks like 5-6” so far, and it’s still coming down hard. Not a puff of air moving either. Yesterday all this was clear except for old snow on the ground. Those are 8x8 timbers alongside the steps.

Schools closed, businesses delaying opening, traffic a freakin mess. Forget the airports: brought to a standstill. SLAM.  Episode eleventy nine of The Winter That Would Never Quit.



Winter Storm Maximus, the 13th named storm of the winter season in the U.S., is bringing one last wintry swipe to the East Monday.

This storm has brought multiple waves of snow, sleet and freezing rain from west to east across the country.

Snow will be heavy along parts of the I-95 corridor including the New York City metro area, and any early rain will change to snow farther south including Philadelphia, Baltimore, and the north and west suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Snow will also pick up early Monday morning in Boston.
...
The heaviest additional accumulations Monday will be in a stripe from northern West Virginia and southwest Pennsylvania into northern New Jersey and the New York City metro area, with over five inches of total accumulation expected.

a couple hours later here ...

image

Still snowing some, and now the wind is kicking up a bit.

Ruh-roh.

We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
