  • In France, Liberte, Egalite and Fraternite move over for Solar Subsidee

    Mar 24, 2015 @ 1:50 pm - Marc Denis

    France has a new law requiring commercial buildings to install solar cells roof gardens. The solar plant requirement will give a boost to cash strapped solar companies whose government subsidies have mostly ru our in Europe… No Government cash!? No problem, let's use YOURS! Given the slavish attitudes of the socialist population in the land of brie, cabernet and marching Germans, I expect this to proceed with nary a mon Dieu uttered. After all, it's not ALL bad, they can always grow Halal veggies to appease non-German invaders.

  • Where the Wood Bison Roam, Alaska

    North America's largest land mammal, the Wood Bison, has been reintroduced to Alaska after 100 years. In the early 20th Century, the Wood Bison was thought at best to be very rare and possibly extinct. Then in 1957, a herd of 200 was discovered in Canada.

  • Boeing patents force field

    Boeing patents a “force field” to shield the vehicles of our brave soldiers from the shock waves caused by explosions.

  • Hand in hand, Police and race participant cross finish line together

    Mar 23, 2015 @ 6:25 pm - rtthorne

    A great story from so many angles. But it's not news to most of us that the policemen are actually good dudes. No doubt the Obamas, Holders, and Sharptons of the world would have you believe something sinister is afoot.
    Proud for the officer, the son, and especially Asia Ford. I'd like to see an update about her continued transformation after next year's race.

  • India's first handgun for women

    Mar 20, 2015 @ 11:32 am - Alain

    Because of the horrific 2012 gang rape murder in Delhi, the first revolver designed for women is being made and sold in India. It costs 140,000 rupees ($2,240 (the article number is Singapore dollars)). Can't understand why it costs so much…the state-run weapons factory makes it. Indian women might like some gun trafficking right now that the UN, and Obama, are working to ban.

  • NeighborWorks Works for their Neighbors (aka Contractor Friends)

    Mar 18, 2015 @ 6:14 pm - monkeymom

    Exorbitant no-bid contract awards of our tax dollars meant to provide counseling and financial aid to homeowners … and no one inside the Beltway has heard of any impropriety.

  • Thief sells priceless WW2 Airplane parts for scrap

    Mar 18, 2015 @ 3:11 pm - Marc Denis

    In my area of Wisconsin, thieves will enter your property and steal vintage implements, cut them into pieces and sell them to scrap dealers for the going scrap iron rates. Thousands of dollars worth of irreplaceable vintage equipment is lost this way. In a new twist, a thief broke into a storage building and made off with aircraft parts needed to restore vintage WW2 aircraft. In many or most cases, it simply isn't possible to replace these parts as they aren't made any more and the cost to manufacture them from scratch is simply too costly. The thief was arrested after the parts were sold for scrap.

    Some of our 2009 Stimulus fund projects have been found; closed bathrooms and lighting that doesn't work.
