Things aren't looking up for President Donald Trump.

There's the growing investigation into his administration's connections to Russia, the country the intelligence community assesses hacked the election to get the Republican billionaire elected. There's the flailing attempt from the GOP, led by Trump, to gut Obamacare and replace it with a new health care system that the Congressional Budget Office has determined would leave tens of millions more Americans without coverage. There's his press secretary resigning over the president's latest hire and constant reports of infighting in the White House.

And the American people seem to be tired of the constant whirlwind of controversy that Trump has created. The latest polls of his approval rating have pretty much uniformly brought bad news for the president. Gallup pegged his approval at just 37 percent Friday, while 58 percent of Americans disapproved. That's not quite the all-time low for Trump in the Gallup tracking poll—he sunk to just 35 percent in late March when the GOP's first health care plan flopped before the House could even vote—but it's getting close and earlier this month the president had briefly risen back to 40 percent.

I may have overreacted a bit, sorry.

I know this is the generic answer, but it's shills pushing this d&c shit.

The moment an anon tries to discuss policy the thread turns into "muh drumpykuks fugging HILLARY COCKSUCKER GO DIE" because people actually talking about real issues instead of bitching and moaning about individual faggots like a bunch of gossiping schoolgirls absolutely terrifies them.

It used to be possible to ignore them and find anons willing to talk to you, but they seem to be dwindling in number while reddit tier knee-jerk shitheads that go absolutely insane if you dare question their position have either increased in number, or are posting much more frequently.

A traveler arriving at a Bahamas airport discovered something highly unusual at baggage claim – loose crabs making a break for freedom on and around the belt.

A video captured in the baggage claim area at Lynden Pindling International Airport shows dozens of crabs running loose among the luggage on the belt, while some of their crustacean cohorts climb down and scuttle across the floor.

The video shows some people working to corral the crabs into the cooler they apparently escaped from.

"We were arriving at LPIA in Nassau, Bahamas when I noticed the crabs had broken free of the box they were in and attempted to make their getaway," the filmer wrote.

Eddie Heath kept it quiet about his Monday invitation to the White House.

Most Crisfield residents didn’t know the local crab pot manufacturer was headed to meet President Trump until someone shared the news on social media over the weekend.

“When I saw that on Facebook, I got so excited,” said Tillie Doyle, owner of Tull & Price Real Estate. “As a matter of fact, I got a little teary.”

Even the workers at Eddie Heath’s Crab Pots knew little about their boss heading to the event showcasing American-made products and manufacturing as a kickoff to Made in America Week, and they were a little surprised.

“I didn’t figure Eddie would go,” said employee Greg Nelson on Monday. “He don’t like a lot of hoopla like that.”

A sicko Bronx High School of Science teacher who bought nude photos from teenage boys was sentenced Thursday to seven years in federal prison.

Jon Cruz, 34, learned his fate in Manhattan Federal Court, where he pleaded guilty on Sept. 23 to one count of receiving child pornography.

"Some of these communications displayed sexually explicit images of his genitals," Cruz admitted during his plea, in reference to one underage victim.

Cruz trolled for boys on social media and young users of the chat app KIK would give him obscene images of themselves in exchange for money.

Traces of fecal bacteria have been found in drinks sold by Britain’s three major coffee chains, a BBC investigation has found.

It found that ice drinks from Starbucks, Caffe Nero, and Costa all had traces of the fecal-derived pathogen.

Seven out of 10 samples from Costa, which has been voted the nation’s favorite coffee shop for the third year in a row, were found to contain the bacteria.

Three out of 10 samples from Starbucks and Caffe Nero were found to contain the bacteria, known as fecal coliform.

Tony Lewis of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health said the results are “concerning.”

“These should not be present at any level – never mind the significant numbers found,” he said.

Lewis warned that such “opportunistic pathogens” are the cause of “human disease.”

All three chains said they are now investigating the issue.

Costa, where customers can choose their iced drink from a range of six different flavors, said it had updated its ice-producing guidelines and sought out new equipment.

Starbucks said it is conducting its own investigation into the allegations, adding that it takes hygiene “extremely seriously.”

Likewise, Caffe Nero, another award-winning and multinational coffee chain, said it is “thoroughly” investigating the claims and that it will act upon the findings.

The news follows a similar scandal earlier this year in which human waste was detected inside Coca-Cola cans arriving in Northern Ireland from Germany.

The contamination was traced to the Lisburn Coca-Cola plant and is thought to have been caused by illegal immigrants hiding inside the vehicles transporting the empty cans.

An accused Russian money launderer representing a Kremlin-friendly oligarch has been reportedly identified as the eighth person at a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. last June.

Irakly Kaveladze was a guest of Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya when she visited Trump and other campaign members in Trump Tower last year, Trump’s lawyer told CNN. The meeting was proposed by billionaire Russian real-estate developer Aras Agalarov. The billionaire is friendly with President Donald Trump, having hosted his Miss Universe 2013 pageant in Moscow and discussed real-estate deals with Trump.

The June 9, 2016 meeting was originally characterized by Trump Jr. as "primarily…about the adoption of Russian children." It was then revealed to have aso been about Agalarov providing “damaging information” on Hillary Clinton from the Kremlin. Joining Trump in the meeting were his brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, and campaign chairman Paul Manafort

The Trump administration is readying for a crackdown on marijuana users under Attorney General Jeff Sessions

.

President Trump’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, led by Sessions, is expected to release a report next week that criminal justice reform advocates fear will link marijuana to violent crime and recommend tougher sentences for those caught growing, selling and smoking the plant.

Sessions sent a memo in April updating the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and Department of Justice Department (DOJ) component heads on the work of the task force, which he said would be accomplished through various subcommittees. In the memo, Sessions said he has asked for initial recommendations no later than July 27.

That's nice in theory, but that's not how it works. Congress can't make weed legal because of the UN narcotics conventions.

Nonetheless, I only care about the Democrats not winning and all laws, conventions, formalities are secondary to that. Sessions serves at Ttump's pleasure and Trump can tell him to knock it off. Sessions has made it quite clear that his problem with weed is not that it's illegal, but because it's his personal crusade.

Someone needs to communicate to that man that he didn't get his job to indulge in his pet issues, but to fuck up the shit of immigrants. His interests are subordinate to what the administration deems politically expedient. Harassing Central American criminals is politically expedient, trying to continue Nixon's wildly unpopular anti-Black war on drugs in a country where half the population has used weed at some point, is not. Besides: data from Colorado has shown that minorities will continue to he incarcerated at no decreased rates for cannabis-related offenses even after some legalization has been put in place because they persist in slangin' dope on da streets nyiguh, or from their cockroach-infested apartments, contravening all those regulations the White people put in place.

>By the way. This is not being anecdotal evidence; it's just an anecdote I just found.

The definition of anecdotal evidence.

Also, the idea that alcohol is less harmful than weed is laughable. Alcohol is not only the drug that kills the most people globally p.a., it is also highly psychologically and physiologically addictive addictive. Withdrawal can and routinely does kill people. Delirium tremens (delirium brought on by withdrawal) kills up to one third of sufferers IN A HOSPITAL setting. This is worse than heroin.

Benzos - an analogue to alcohol - are famous for their capacity to destroy people's lives, and they're given out like candy. You can read about their effects here, and I assure you that they're more serious that "a lack of motivation":

http://www.benzo.org.uk/manual/

>but potheads are le stupid and I don't like them!!!

Indeed they are - and they understate the kindling effect weed can have on schizophrenia, especially in the genetically predisposed and teenagers. There was a famous study of Swedish conscripts that showed a six-fold increase in the risk of developing schizophrenia among high-intensity users who had begun using before 15:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2892048

Thus is a very, very fucking serious complication indeed, and one that the weed industry will be sure to not tell you. In addition, there is (somewhat ambiguous) evidence that the overstimulation of the endocannabinoid system disturbs brain maturation during the teenage years, which, in conjunction with the cancerous stoner culture we all know, leads to some users being idiot cunts.

Nonetheless, all of this is a far cry from the negative effects of alcohol which, I remind you, includes fucking death. Alcohol prohibition, if it could work, would be sociallyPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

A trip to Catalina Island this week became a lesson in marine biology, with tiny red crabs washing ashore in the thousands and dozens of kids working tirelessly to try to save them by returning them to the sea.

Micah Stovall, of Huntington Beach, took a quick vacation to Catalina with family in town from Tennessee when they noticed the small creatures along the shore and in the shallow waters at the main beach in Avalon.

Stovall knew right away what they were: small crabs that look like tiny lobsters or crawfish. He had ventured with his family two years ago to Balboa Island in Newport Beach when hundreds of thousands of them blanketed the shore.

The Pleuroncodes planipes, also known as pelagic red crabs or tuna crabs, are about one to three inches long. They are usually found off Baja, but warm water in the past few years has pushed them up to Southern California in large numbers, especially along the Orange County coastline. Before then, the crabs hadn’t been seen in the area for decades.

While El Nino was credited for the invasion the past few years, the water has returned to normal, colder temperatures this year. But a south swell in recent days has helped push warm water to the coastline, in many areas boosting water temperatures near 70 degrees.

Their sudden appearance can be a headache for maintenance workers as they try to scoop up the mostly dead creatures that leave a strong stench when they wash ashore and bake in the sun for too long.

Seattle-based crab boat found on Bering Sea bottom; lost since February with crew of 6

A survey ship used sonar to find the Destination in some 250 feet of water at the bottom of the Bering Sea, off the coast of Alaska.

https://archive.fo/I0lyz

>Federal research vessels have located the Destination, the Seattle-based crab boat that went missing Feb. 11 along with six crew, on the bottom of the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska.

>Crew members were heading out to fish for snow crab when their boat went down on a cold day off St. George Island in the Pribilofs.

>The sunken vessel was found northwest of St. George resting on its port side. It was identified through underwater sonar surveys conducted by two National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration research ships, according to a joint Thursday release from the Coast Guard and NOAA.

>The first survey, conducted April 30 and May 1 by a Kodiak-based ship that does fisheries research, found what appeared to be the Destination. A second sonar survey used for charting the sea bottom was conducted July 8 and 9 by the Ketchikan-based Fairweather. That operation determined the sea-bottom wreck was the Destination.

>“The confirmation is based on the characteristics of the vessel — the length, the beam, the shape of the pilothouse and the fact that there were crab pots on board,” said Jonathan Shannon, a NOAA spokesman, said Thursday.

>Later this month, the Coast Guard icebreaker Healy will head to the site and use a remotely operated vehicle with a camera to investigate the wreck.

>Coast Guard divers, able to descend to depths of 150 feet, also may assist, according to Alanna Miller, a spokesman for the Marine Board of Investigation, which beginning Aug. 8 will hold hearings in Seattle about the vessel’s demise.

http://www.wisn.com/article/two-injured-in-explosion-at-milwaukee-city-facility/10324633

MILWAUKEE —

Propane tanks had to be detonated Tuesday night after two men were critically injured in an explosion at a municipal facility on the city's southwest side, an official said.

"I was in the shop working, and all of a sudden 'boom.' You could feel it hit your chest. I come out here, and there was just debris floating around out there," said Casey Balciunes, who heard the blast. 

First responders were called to the Department of Public Works' Lincoln Avenue Garage, on the 3900 block of West Lincoln Avenue, just before 1 p.m.

Milwaukee's deputy fire chief at the scene said he believed the two injured men were contractors and not municipal employees. He said the explosion occurred as they were filling a natural gas van with fuel.

The area within a 300-yard radius of the facility was evacuated about 4:30 p.m. because more propane tanks were found in the van, and there were fears of a secondary explosion, WISN 12 News reporter Terry Sater said. A hazmat team was called in.

The Milwaukee Fire Department and Milwaukee Police Department bomb squad detonated the tanks before 11 p.m. The atmosphere was going to be tested before people would be allowed back in.

Another witness said the men were injured by shrapnel and were bleeding profusely.

They were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

India’s massive diesel-guzzling railway network is getting serious about its experiments with solar.

On July 14, Indian Railways rolled out its first train with rooftop solar panels that power the lights, fans, and information display systems inside passenger coaches. Although the train will still be pulled by a diesel-powered locomotive, a set of 16 solar panels atop each coach will replace the diesel generators that typically power these appliances. The railways estimate that a train with six solar-powered coaches could save around 21,000 litres of diesel every year, worth around Rs12 lakh.

In 2014, Indian Railways consumed 2.6 billion litres of diesel, accounting for around 70% to the network’s total fuel bill of Rs28,592 crore.

The first of these trains will be pressed into service on the suburban railway network of New Delhi, one of the world’s most polluted cities, before two dozen more coaches are fitted with similar rooftop solar systems. Retrofitting each coach with these system, including an inverter to optimise power generation and battery for storing surplus power, costs around Rs9 lakh.

Impressive if it works but I'm not hoping on the solar bandwagon because of a few trains. Nuclear is still the solution to killing the petrojew.

What good are these going to be when the railroads are all rotting due to all the human shit everywhere?

>Solar panels are actually the most cost effective way to produce energy.

Really? Because covering your roof in them barely powers a heating element.

Things are not looking good for the coal industry.

In the latest blow to this fossil fuel, the world biggest coal company is closing a total of 37 mines. It seems that the rise of solar power is playing a major role in the decline of coal. The company, Coal India, produces 82 percent of India’s coal, according to The Independent. The closings account for nine percent of Coal India’s sites.

The Indian government has recently shifted from coal to cleaner, renewable sources, most notably solar power. Just last week, the government announced that it has abandoned plans for building another coal power station with Chimanbhai Sapariya. T,he country’s energy minister noted that “Our focus is now on renewable energy. The government will encourage solar power.” The prices of solar power continue to plummet as technology and government incentives work to make renewable energy more attractive.

Portsmouth Herald,

July 19, 2017

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire lobsterman has joined an elite club after catching a rare blue lobster.

The Portsmouth Herald reports Greg Ward initially thought he had snagged an albino lobster when he examined his catch off the coast Monday where New Hampshire borders Maine. The Rye lobsterman quickly realized his hard-shell lobster was a unique blue and cream color.

The oft-cited odds of catching a blue lobster are 1 in 2 million. But no one knows for sure.

Ward says the lobster is unlike anything he’s ever seen.

He gave the rare crustacean to the Seacoast Science Center in Rye to study and put on display.

Center aquarist Rob Royer says Ward’s blue lobster will go on display in the “exotic” lobster tank once it acclimates to the water.

Well, it's one for the money

Two for the show

Three to get ready

Now go, cat, go

But don't you

Step on my blue lobster shoes

You can do anything

But stay off of my blue lobster shoes

Well, you can knock me down

Step in my face

Slander my name

All over the place

Do anything that you want to do

But uh-uh, honey

Lay off of my shoes

Don't you step on my blue lobster shoes

Well, you can do anything

But stay off of my blue lobster shoes
