Late Night Ladies


A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus.

She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her.  

She immediately moved to another seat.

This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again.  

The man seemed more amused.  

When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing,

she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested. 

The case came up in court. 

The judge asked the man (about 20 years old)

what he had to say for himself.

The man replied,

'Well your Honor, it was like this:

when the lady got on the bus,

I couldn't help but notice her condition.  

She sat down under a sign that said,

'The Double Mint Twins are coming' and I grinned. 

Then she moved and sat under a sign that said,

'Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling,' and I had to smile.

Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said,

'William's Big Stick Did the Trick,' and I could hardly contain myself.

  But, Your Honor, when she moved the fourth time

and sat under a sign that said,

'Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident!'

... I just lost it.'

Leading German climatologist: "Climate research was hijacked by politicians"

"Climate research was hijacked by politicians, in order to make their decisions look scientifically given and without any alternative". That is the key message in German climatologist, IPCC lead writer Hans von Storch's new book "Die Klimafalle: Die gefährliche Nähe von Politik und Klimaforschung" (The Climate Trap: The dangerous closeness between politics and climate research), which he has written together with social scientist Werner Krauß.

CERN, Higgs Boson and Anthropogenic Global Warming

The Physicists at CERN are currently getting a lot of fanfare and media attention for the identification of the  Higgs boson particle.

But when the physicists at CERN discuss their findings on Anthropogenic Global Warming, the media are not interested.  The media have no intellectual curiosity when CERN says that "cosmic rays will probably be able to account for somewhere between a half and the whole of the increase in the Earth's temperature that we have seen in the last century."  This is essentially saying that the sun causes global warming.  It is also not unlike telling the kids in wintertime that the fireplace is keeping the house warm.

Beware the Ides of March: Assassinations That Shook the World

Assassination as a political tool is as old as … well, as old as politics. By knife, gun and garrote, in dynastic fratricides, bloody palace intrigues and modern presidential killings, the murder of a head of state — whether by a lone wolf or a clan of executioners — sends a singular message: we’re mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore. First thing on our agenda toward setting things right? A change in leadership, no ballot box required.
The Ideas of March, of course, is famous as the day in 44 BC on which Julius Caesar himself was assassinated by a group of Roman senators. Shakespeare immortalized the date with a phrase now recognized around the English-speaking world — “Beware the Ides of March” — although it’s likely that many of those who occasionally employ the phrase probably have no clue 1) who first uttered the line (it was a soothsayer in the Bard’s 1599 Tragedy of Julius Caesar) or 2) what it actually refers to. Nevertheless, on the Ides of March 2013, TIME recalls not only that long-ago assassination of Gaius Julius Caesar, but a series of other politically motivated murders that shook the world — and in some cases changed the course of history.

Google Reader Is Shutting Down; Here Are the Best Alternatives

Whitson Gordon

Google announced today that it'll be closing Google Reader's doors on July 1st of this year, meaning you'll need to find a new way to get your news fix. Here's how to export all your feeds and put them into a new reader.
Step One: Find a New RSS Reader

RSS is the mechanism by which Google Reader subscribes to web sites, and lets you know which articles you've read. Luckily, it's far from the only RSS reader out there, so chances are you shouldn't have too much trouble finding one you like. In general, they fall into two categories. Here are your options.
Option One: Cloud-Based News Readers

Full sizeIf you read your RSS feeds in more than one place (that is, if you want to read them at home, at work, or on different devices), you'll want to try a web-based RSS reader, similar to what Google Reader is now. NetVibes (pictured above) is one of the most popular web reader, offering a Google Reader-like interface as well as a snazzy iGoogle-like homepage.

NewsBlur is also a great option, with an interface that's very similar to Google Reader (and arguably a little more polished). You create an account with them, subscribe to your favorite sites, and can read them on any computer. They even have Android and iOS apps that'll sync your feeds, too. Update: It looks like NewsBlur has suspended free accounts for the time being, likely because of the influx of new users. Either way, it's one to keep an eye on.

Feedly is popular, but definitely different than Google Reader. Its interface is less traditional and a bit more "newspaper-like," but it's very pretty. You can, however, get a more traditional Reader-like interface if you prefer. You need to download a browser extension for Chrome or Firefox to use it, but you'll be able to sync your feeds between browsers and even to Feedly's mobile apps. Update: Feedly has also said that they'll have a "seamless" transition method in place when Reader goes down.

Update: A lot of you have mentioned The Old Reader as a great alternative, and it is! In fact, its design is based of Google Reader's before the recent redesign, so it's a fantastic option to check out if you're looking for something familiar.
Option Two: Desktop-Based News Readers

Full sizeYour other option is to go with a desktop app. Desktop readers often offer many more features than their web-based counterparts, but with one big downside: all desktop apps currently sync with Google Reader. That means, unless the developers get it syncing with a different service, you'll only be able to read your feeds on the machine you used to subscribe to them. Of course, Google Reader doesn't shut down until July, so there's enough time that we could actually see that happen.

For Windows, we really like FeedDemon (pictured above) for its high level of customizability. (Update: with Google Reader's demise, FeedDemon's developer has announced FeedDemon's death as well). Check out our App Directory entry to read more about it and get some alternatives. Mac users should check out the beautiful, feature-packed Reeder and its alternatives. If you do most of your reading on your phone or tablet, you might try some of theAndroid- or iOS-based feed readers as well.
Step Two: Import Your Google Reader Feeds

Full size

Once you've found a new RSS reader, you should import your Google Reader feeds so you don't have to re-subscribe to everything. Luckily, migrating your feeds from Google Reader is very simple. Here's what you need to do:
Head to Google Takeout's Reader page and click the Create Archive button. It'll start building a file with all your feeds, the people you follow, starred items, and more (though most of these won't be importable to other sites).
Once it's finished building, click the Download button that appears to get your subscriptions.
Open up the ZIP file you just downloaded and go through the folders inside. Inside theReader folder, you should see a file called subscriptions.xml. Extract that to your desktop.
Open up your new feed reader of choice, head into its settings, and find the Import option. Select it, and choose the subscriptions.xml file you just extracted. All of your feeds should appear in your new reader.

This won't import your starred items or know which articles you've already read on Google Reader, but at least you'll still have all your subscriptions. Alternatively, you can download a desktop reader that syncs with Reader—our favorite ones for Windows, Mac, Android, and iOSall do—let it sync, and then turn off Google Reader syncing once it's done. That way, you should at least be able to pick up where you left off.

You've still got until July to figure out which RSS reader you want to move to, so try a few different services out and see what you like. Hopefully, by the time July rolls around, some of the desktop apps might even have other options for syncing to the cloud. In the meantime, join us in the discussions below and share your favorite non-Google RSS reader.
