Is "the race always to the swift", or is that just a fishy story?
Check out the full story at the link below.   Ornithologists, don't miss this.
Tel Aviv skyline panorama. Ask anyone knowledgeable, and they'll tell you that Tel Aviv is a hustling, bustling city. They might say "high tech hub". They might even say "24 hour party town". But they won't say Tel Aviv is rich in ancient history. Tel Aviv was founded on sand dunes, ...

OK,  I get where they are coming from, but really no one is "gifted" with disabilities.

I'm beginning to think birds hate me.  They simply won't hold still for a shot.

It's a rational decision.

Egrets?  I've shot a few.  But then again, too few to mention.

(Shot = photographed, but "photographed" doesn't scan).

This astounds me - a headline saying the Cleveland cops promise to stop using a violent tactic that was banned dozens of years ago in most places.  What is going on in these cities?
Cleveland police will not hit people over the head with guns anymore, per an a consent decree between the U.S. Justice Department and Cleveland police released today.

Maybe they think laws 'on the books' don't apply to law enforcement agencies???  Now that the light of day and the world's eyes are focused on them, they are giving lip service to convince someone they will obey the law.....
What a crock it most likely is...........This is astounding.  
Wholesale firing is the answer--they'd be better managed if they appointed some new graduates from the police academy and started over....
Their general appearance reminds me of the 'old boys' in the senate and house that are  keeping our country from moving forward with dignity.

When a Baseball Shirt Meets a Skater Skirt
Remember last year's skater skirts ? You can wear them again right now thanks to this year's sporty trend . Better yet, pair one with another athletic item, a baseball T-shirt . For more of this article, please visit http://www.crystaltai.com/node/132 Follo...

What kind of thinking led to an avocado appearing in the complimentary fruit bowl in the lunch room?   OK, it's a fruit, but... so are tomatoes.

Maybe it has some hidden freshness feature? I know that apples usually produce something which makes the rest of the fruits ripe faster. So eat the bananas while you can!

Some sort of ... ballsy ... contraption out on the muddy part of SF Bay.  Possibly something to do with opening and closing a pipe according to tide level - closing when tide reaches the balls.

I do see your point that floating balls could help hold the door closed if the water rose up to the level of the balls and the water pressure in the pipe was trying to force the door open.

I think the acid test is knocking on the balls with a knuckle (or rock) and seeing if they sound hollow.

Bair Island nature reserve, yesterday lunchtime.  They are said to be "building a road".  What kind of road belongs in a nature reserve, and that takes all this equipment.  I am doubtful about this.

I travel a bit, and spend my fair share of time in hotels.  They often send me their ads.   It's noticeable how many hotel marketing department think that black is a great color for email ad backgrounds.

It's not.

I'll happily agree that email probably shouldn't muck about with colors in the first place, but then the background would still be black as a matter of default? I guess I could entertain nostalgia tinged deliberation over whether the text should be light gray or amber though. :)
