Cat-nabbed kitten found safe and
well! Police question Romanian
woman, 41, over alleged theft
after her husband tips off officers

Daily Mail [UK], by Anthony Bond, Luke Salkeld

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/10/2013 8:12:05 AM

A Romanian man has told police his wife was the shoplifter filmed on CCTV grabbing a startled kitten in a pet shop and bundling it into her handbag. The man and his wife handed over the eight-week-old black and white cat, called Little Boy, who was back with its owner today unharmed. A Romanian woman, 41, was being questioned by police today over the alleged theft--which has caused public outrage over the way the kitnapper roughly man-handled the pet and forced it into a black zip-up bag. Little Boy was being looked after by animal lover Carol Ivory, 62

Comments:
Saw the initial report on this yesterday but hoped for a happy ending after the video was shown on TV and the Net. Sure enough, the kitten was turned in--and by the woman´s husband! If you watch the video you´ll see how this awful woman grabs the little kitten and absolutely throws it into her bag, then zips it up. Mail readers were furious, of course.

The kitten´s photo is a candidate for best Awww! this week.

That´s quite a pink little nose on this absolutely adorable kitten! Glad Little Boy was found safe and sound and returned.

Unfortunately EU regs have added to the dilution of ´native´ Brit population in the UK.

There is NO ability to control immigration from these countries.

That kitten is only 4 weeks old, at most. Its eyes are still blue and its ears not up yet. I hope it wasn´t for sale.

#3, the article says the kitten and its mother were being cared for by the store owner because the cats´ owner was on vacation. The photo was taken some weeks before, apparently.

Is World War Three about to start...

China and Japan could boil over

Perhaps it is possible--and how nice it would be to believe this--that war between the greatest nations on earth has been abolished. The cost and the threat of nuclear escalation is so horrendous that reason argues that nothing remotely resembling the 20th century´s vast global clashes can ever happen again. Assuredly, there can be no more Dunkirks or D-Days, because no Western nation--even the United States--can deploy a mass army. If conflict does come, it will be waged with the high-tech weapons of our own time: warplanes manned and unmanned, missiles, cyber-attack weapons and the many instruments of destruction guided

The U.S. Department of Justice´s Criminal Division is paying $544,000 for a shiny new LinkedIn profile, in the wake of a partial government shutdown that followed a top Democrat´s assurance that ´the cupboard is bare, there´s no more cuts to make.´ [Snip] According to the ´Google for government´ website FedBizOpps.gov, the federal government has issued more than 1,300 procurement contracts since the beginning of December, including six-figure outlays for valet parking, portable toilets, expensive lamps, and special boxes to ship fruit flies from one government facility to another.

John Kerry and America to the
rescue – but is it too late?
Telegraph [UK], by David Blair    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 1/2/2014 10:27:21 PM     Post Reply
John Kerry has many faults, but poverty of ambition is not among them. In the first half of 2014, the US Secretary of State has placed two items at the top of his “to do” list. One: secure a final peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, preferably by April. Two: settle the confrontation over Iran’s nuclear ambitions once and for all, hopefully before August. Then, with both of those Gordian knots safely cut, Mr Kerry might turn his hand to other tasks, like curing cancer, or exploring mining opportunities on Mars. In truth, the easy jibes are unfair

The supreme court of California has granted a law license to an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who has lived for years in the US. Sergio Garcia, 36, arrived in the US nearly two decades ago without papers. He attended law school and passed the California bar exam, but has not yet been granted a visa.

Special forces in Iraq are fighting jihadist militants who have reportedly taken over swathes of two cities. The clashes with Sunni fighters from the al-Qaeda linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) are taking place in Fallujah and Ramadi. Both cities are in the province of Anbar where Sunni militant activity has been on the rise. Meanwhile at least 23 people were reportedly killed in militant attacks elsewhere in Iraq. Sunni Arabs in Iraq claim they have been targeted and politically marginalised by the Shia-led government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, a charge the prime minister denies.

Military drones set to get stronger chemical

Drones that can choose to deviate from a set mission and hunt in ‘swarms’ could be patrolling skies within the next 25 years, according to a new roadmap. Unmanned aircraft carrying stronger chemical weapons could also be on the horizon, the U.S. Department of Defence (DoD) revealed in its Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap. While the document sets out plans for unmanned maritime, land and air vehicles, there is a lot of focus on the future capability of controversial drones, which, if the plans come to fruition, could deviate from mission commands set by humans if they spot a better target.

GPs are threatening to refuse to see patients passed on to them by NHS 111 call centre staff. They say they do not have time for more patients and will not be told what to do by helpline staff who are not medically trained. NHS medical director Professor Sir Bruce Keogh announced plans in November to beef up the helpline to ensure patients can see or speak to a doctor quickly to take pressure off A&E units. He wants call centre staff to book patients for an appointment at their surgery or out-of-hours clinic or arrange for a GP to

A group of Romanian immigrants were today rounded up and arrested at Marble Arch as police launched an immigration crackdown just one day after border controls were relaxed. [Snip] Marble Arch has become a popular meeting place for Roma beggars, leading to complaints by locals of dangerous and unsanitary conditions in the upmarket neighbourhood. The number of immigrants coming to Britain from Romania and Bulgaria is expected to rise after restrictions on their ability to work were lifted by the Government yesterday. However, citizens of the EU who do not have a job and cannot support themselves are not allowed

An IT expert has fitted a barcode to his father´s gravestone which when scanned reveals the story of the war hero´s part in the Arctic Convoys of the Second World War. Developer Joe Davies used QR code technology to install the barcode on the headstone, giving those who visit former Merchant Seaman Charles Davies´s final resting place, an interactive guide of his life.

Every so often one comes across a book, a poem or a work of art that is so original, perfectly crafted, accurate and true that you can’t get it out of your head. [Snip] Written by the political scientists Richard Katz and Peter Mair, and called “The Emergence of a Cartel Party”, it immediately explained almost everything that had perplexed me as a lobby correspondent: the unhealthy similarity between supposedly rival parties; the corruption and graft that has become endemic in modern politics; the emergence of a political elite filled with scorn and hostility towards ordinary voters.

On 2 January 1492, a 40-year-old Italian sailor stood amid the fluttering banners outside the fabled walls of Granada, and watched as Muhammad XII handed the city’s keys over to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain. On Muhammad’s ignominious ride south, as he looked back from a mountain peak now known as el ultimo suspiro del moro (the moor’s last sigh), he wept for the 781-year old Islamic state he had lost forever. Al-Andalus was no Muslim outpost. The Spanish Islamic society had been a quintessential part of the European continent for almost 800 years. In an English context,

Margaret Thatcher is today hailed as Britain’s most successful post-war Prime Minister. The Tories’ Iron Lady topped a survey in which MPs rated every leader between 1945 and 2010. She beat Labour’s Clement Attlee into second place. David Cameron, who has not yet completed his tenure at No 10, was omitted from the University of London study. [Snip] Mrs Thatcher, who led the country between 1979 and 1990 and died last April aged 87, gained an average of 7.4, just ahead of Mr Attlee’s 7.3. Labour’s Tony Blair came third with 6.8.

The Straight Dope on Homosexuality

Taki Magazine, by Elizabeth McCaw    Original Article

The Department of Justice reports that homosexuals are more likely (15.4% of them) than heterosexual men (10.8%) to be physically attacked by a domestic partner. But the DOJ also found that 39% of cohabiting lesbians say they have been raped, attacked, or stalked by a lover, as opposed to 21.7% of heterosexuals who live with men. This means a lesbian is about twice as likely as a hetero woman to be stalked or slapped around by a live-in lover. A hugely disproportionate number of male serial killers have been homosexual; figures run from 40 to 60% depending on definitions. Some

A professor who teaches constitutional law courses at the City University of New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice penned a Christmas Day essay blaming “southern White radicals” for the disastrous, slow-motion train wreck failure that has been the rollout of the Affordable Care Act. The essay, by Gloria J.

The establishment GOP in Washington hates the Tea Party and the conservative wing of the party more than they do the Democrats. They will make very clear that instead of riding a conservative wave to a landslide victory in the 2014 midterms, they will do everything in their power to sabotage conservative and Tea Party candidates for their own personal benefit. Many establishment groups have been vocal about their strategy to attack principled conservatives.

Colorado will make history Wednesday as the first American state allowing stores to sell marijuana for recreational use – eliciting fear and predictions of doom from anti-drug campaigners. On a Tuesday conference call hosted by Smart Approaches to Marijuana, former Rep. Patrick Kennedy, D-R.I., said Colorado and Washington state – where stores will open later in 2014 – are "canaries in the coal mine." "There are a lot of ´unintended consequences´... that will make them ponder whether this was the right decision," Kennedy said, predicting more traffic accidents, increased school truancy, higher drop-out rates and a general decrease in public health.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie signed landmark legislation at the end of December which allowed the state’s undocumented high school students access to in-state tuition at all public colleges and universities. Under the new legislation, students who graduated from a New Jersey high school where they had been in attendance for at least three years are eligible to receive in-state and in-county rates at state colleges, universities, and community college campuses. “This is what compromise looks like,” the governor said of the bill, deemed the state’s “Dream Act.” Christie signed the original bill with a conditional veto,

Chicken has officially overtaken beef as the most popular meat product being consumed in the U.S. and the trend looks likely to continue in 2014. While the per capita consumption of beef has dropped from a peak of 90lbs per capita in the 1970s to 50 lbs in 2012, chicken consumption has gone the other way rising from under 20 lbs in 1960 to about 55 lbs in 2012. Americans now eat less beef then we did in 1955, but is the change a result of a healthier diet or because people are choosing the cheaper option? The answer is

An air rescue for the passengers aboard a research ship that has been trapped in Antarctic ice for a week will wait for a break in the weather to start airlifting people from the vessel, Australian maritime authorities say. The 74 scientists, tourists and crew aboard the Akademik Shokalskiy, a Russian-crewed research vessel touring the Antarctic, have been trapped in ice since Christmas Eve. A helicopter on board a Chinese icebreaker, the Snow Dragon, will be used to collect the passengers once there is a break in the weather, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority said in a Monday night conference

Plans to rescue 52 passengers trapped on the stricken Russian research ship Akademik Shokalskiy have been thrown into disarray after the Chinese ice-breaker Xue Long itself became stuck in pack ice, west of the Mertz Glacier. It is the second vessel to become trapped in the region in less than two weeks. There were expectations that a helicopter would on Thursday begin ferrying trapped passengers off the Russian ship and onto the Xue Long.

Despite conventional wisdom, Republicans and Democrats can agree on important issues. As a lifelong Republican, I agree with Democrat Warren Buffett: Obamacare should be scrapped. I also agree with Hollywood liberals that NSA spying on millions of innocent Americans is a violation of our collective right to privacy. And I agree with feminist Camille Paglia that Hillary Clinton disqualified herself as a presidential candidate with her handling of Benghazi. Here’s why: The most important duty of the commander in chief is to keep Americans safe.

Yesterday was a momentous day in New York City politics: Chiara de Blasio wore a festive hat, Miranda from Sex and the City made an appearance, and much cheering and merriment was had. Although some of it was reserved for Bill de Blasio´s inauguration and his ambitious plan to reduce the income gap, a lot of the joy was focused on Hillary Clinton´s new bangs. While some news outlets, like Vanity Fair, reported that they were "bangs," the Cut can confirm it: Those side-swept, layered, pieces of fluffy heaven resting ever so gently on our potential first lady president´s forehead

To put it bluntly: nobody knows nothin’ about the president of the United States, aka the leader of the free world.

O.J. Simpson is receiving tests for brain cancer and is begging President Barack Obama for a pardon so he can die in peace at home, according to a new report. The jailed former football legend, who is serving out a kidnapping, assault and robbery sentence in a Nevada prison, is undergoing secret medical exams for a cancerous tumor in his brain and is convinced he hasn´t got long to live, The National Enquirer reports.
