I bet the Lion Killer Dentist is paying for his lawyers dream home right about now..l
By MacDonald Dzirutwe HARARE (Reuters) - The American dentist who killed Cecil the lion was a "foreign poacher" who paid for an illegal hunt and he should be extradited to Zimbabwe to face justice, environment minister Oppah Muchinguri said on Friday. In Harare's first official comments since Cecil's killing grabbed world headlines this week, Muchinguri said the Prosecutor General had already started the process to have 55-year-old Walter Palmer ...

We never tease our Alexa
As today’s artificial intelligence grow and more capable of natural language interaction with humans, they will need to master a peculiar yet highly important design need: ready-made snarky responses for when their human owners troll them with science fiction movie A.I. references.

“There seems to be a lack of respect when people assert their rights,” he said.

Duh, really?  Could it be especially when a minority asserts their rights?

I think she committed suicide but it was definitely led by how the way they treated her badly mentally and physically.

In December of 2013, I said the value of a Bitcoin should be around $200.00 at most.

Supposedly intelligent people were saying it would be worth thousands of dollars.

It's about $240.00 today.
Believe whatever you want to believe but know this:   The meek will NOT inherit the earth.  Some people will make money with Bitcoins, but most will become poorer.  This is the underlying reality of wealth.  Until all Bit...

This article is one that tries to paint Walter Palmer as a conservationist.

A real conservationist would have paid $55,000 for the license to kill and used it to take a picture instead.

Zimbabwe could sell "photo licenses" if such real conservationists existed.

But I guess they do not. So, without absolving Palmer in any way, I have to ask this: when Zimbabwe wants to cull the herd for whatever reason - whether it's an old, sterile animal that needs to be killed for the good of the pride or even if they just need operating expenses, why can't they charge an extra few thousand dollars, pick a specific animal and outfit them with a Bluetooth beacon that identifies the animal as one who may be killed by the person holding the license to kill that specific animal? The oh so mighty hunter would have a device that would validate the identification before the great warrior would bravely dispatch death to the chosen victim.

Or (and I like this better) sell ten $55,000 licenses to kill and let the nimrods compete with each other to see who can dispatch the tagged animal first. Accidental killings of each other during the pursuit would be a bonus , I think.

But that doesn't help the GOP, so it will have to be investigated and debunked. Or ignored.
 
Impressive improvements, some of which are likely due to the Affordable Care Act and the HITECH Act.

Though it might seem unlikely that the U.S. would send one of its citizens to Robert Mugabe ... it might.

Dan was an engineer. If you can imagine an engineer running such a place, maybe you'll understand why some people find him rude. However, he's actually a very nice man and his wife Ginny is lovely also. We've been coming here since 1989 (before Dan and Ginny owned it) and simply wouldn't consider anywhere else. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is always great and our fellow members are wonderful people. If you have any trouble with Dan (very unlikely unless you are breaking rules), just say "Yes, Oh Mighty Master!" and he will laugh. Seriously - don't let that bad review cause you to miss a wonderful resort.

We had Nick G. in for a furnace problem a few weeks ago and because he was so professional on that, we had him back to remove, reseal and put back a badly installed kitchen sink. The cost was definitely more than than it should have been ($200 for about an hour's work), but on the other hand the job was done professionally, cleanly, and quickly. That's worth paying extra for, at least for me. We had another local plumber in a few weeks ago to put in a shutoff valve on our washing machine: they gouged up our floor moving the machine and would have broken the door of the washer if I hadn't yelled at them that they had it jammed - I do not get the feeling that ARS would ever have let that happen. With other workman we have to watch like hawks, laying out old towels so they don't scratch things with their tools - again, Nick did that automatically. It looks to me that he's always thinking about stuff like that. Little details like wearing pull-on boot covers and spreading out a cloth matter. So - ARS is not the cheapest, but if you want quality and care, I definitely recommend them. With cheap, you get what you pay for.
