PS: Did you know the ancestors of giraffes were in the US midwest plains thousands of years ago and about the size of a miniature pony?
They migrated to Asia and ultimately to Africa. gwb

GWB:
This was an evolutionary change to allow them to cross the Siberia-Alaskan land bridge that was still under water, though shallow.
Perusing the plethora of theories about said land bridge, it was apparently a very busy place. But since everyone had learned to keep right by then traffic wasn't that big of a problem and it explains why the English and Japanese never colonized Washington, Oregon, or California.

South Sudan was set up as the 'model program' for nation building in Africa. The whole thing is a shambles now but what gets me the most is that when the price of food goes up 50% everybody ends up starving to death and we get the 'credit for it'. No water, no farmers, no food. No NGO's? gwb Nick Turse is a great reporter!

TSB said...

GWB: They could feed Africa with GM crops, but that would cause disquiet among the (well-fed) donor nations and NGOs.

Which is the higher value: growing drought-resistant maize in Africa, or politically attacking those corporate villains at Monsanto? I say it's maximizing crop yields, but opinions differ.

Anonymous said...

TSB: This year they had perfect growing conditions in Sudan and plenty of seed. Just no farmers left to plant, tend and harvest because of the war. Yes, Monsanto is great for many. Yucatan farmers last week won a court ruling banning the stuff to protect the honey farmers.. 2nd biggest honey exporters in the world. gwb (Monsanto grains kill off the bees.)

James: You're right. Bo Diddley is exactly what we need. I just looked up some of his music, and what impresses me was how he did not pander to teenage audiences or pop themes even when he was a mass market figure, but always picked music with serious adult meaning.

I once saw a documentary about him and learned that after he was refused entrance to some restaurants when on tour in the 50s, he did not demand the government do anything about it, but instead got a charcoal grill and cooked his own food while on the road from then on. Late in his life he served as a deputy sheriff volunteer for several years, helped to built his own home, and was a solid self-reliant citizen.

A mensch, quite unlike most musical stars.

"The two hours of audio, the maximum recording capacity of the equipment, which were received and validated by certified technicians, were not of the flight of 13 August," air force spokesman Pedro Luis Farcic said. FAB is trying to determine what the recording is. Campos and six other people died when a private jet crashed near Sao

TSB GWB: Yeah, I remember Son Tay and the Carter attempt. I think in this case it was a set up. ISIS fed some funky intel to our guys knowing it would be lapped up providing another Bin Laden was killed moment. Instead they flew into an ambush. A key is reports that ops guys started receiving fire before touching down, which means they were waiting for them.

ok TSB: $130 million would have had
Foley released with the other ransomed hostages and our rescue mission was based on "Intel" from the other hostages.
