Dont believe the media hype on san francisco

from urbandictionary.com

"Anarchy" arises from ancient Greek "An," meaning without and "Archos" meaning leader.
In modern political philosophy anarchy, or anarchism (the ideology which aims to create anarchy) is traced back, often, to Proudhon, and in particular his work "What is property?" - the origin of the still used anarchist slogan "Property is theft!"
Contrary to belief that "anarchy" is synomous with "Disorder," anarchists generally advocate non-hierarchical, horizontal organization, typically through directly democratic structures. As such, there is a degree of common ground between anarchists and libertarian Marxists. Many anarchists are highly supportive of the practice of the Zapatistas in Chiapas.

Opposition to all forms of authoritarian organisation and hierarchy. A society in which individuals cooperate as equels.
A form of society based around the lack of a ruling class and an emphasis on individual freedom and equality. An ideal form of anarchy would involve a cooperative socialist gift economy, in which goods are freely produced and distributed according to need. Crime would not be the huge problem most people would imagine. Anyone with a basic knowledge of history knows that crime was never a huge problem until urbanization and then industrialization. A focus on community and civic responsibility would nearly eliminate violent crime (smaller, tightly knit communities have virtually no crime, even today). Property crime would be even a less of a problem, given that no one has more than anyone else and destruction of public property would be destruction of one's own property. In case a crime is committed, any and every member of the community is capable of either preventing the crime before hand or apprehending the criminal afterwards, a system which worked for thousands of years before police forces became common during the Industrial Revolution. A common argument against such a system is that "human nature" would eventually lead to a return of capitalism and the establishment of government. This is not a part of "human nature", however. Human beings have almost no instincts at birth. A tendency towards government and capitalism is a product of societal conditioning, not a natural inclination. There have been examples of similar systems working in the real world, including many i...

* Note that at 10:00 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlpOxFe84Qo#) I mention the 2010 Haiti quake that happened before the tidal peak that January. What I failed to mention was that the quake in Haiti happened the day after Venus conjoined the sun, and that the day before Venus conjoined the sun, there was an M 6.5 quake off the coast of Northern California. That was the last 6+ quake in California.

Total US Debt Soars To 101.5% Of GDP




There is nothing quite like a $70 billion debt auction settlement at the last day of a month to bring total US debt to a record $15.692 trillion (https://www.fms.treas.gov/fmsweb/viewDTSFiles?dir=w&fname=12043000.pdf), which happens to be just $600 billion shy of the $16.394 trillion debt ceiling. (and no, contrary to simple economic textbook lesson, this does not mean that the private sector just got another $70 billion in debt capacity courtesy of taxpayers, as explained here (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/no-record-profits-old-assets-jim-montier-unsustainable-parabolic-margin-expansion-dummies)). And now that we know what Q1 GDP was at the end of Q1, or namely $15.462 trillion, it is simply math to divine that today alone total US/debt to GDP rose by 50 bps to a mindboggling 101.5%.
Below is a chart of two lines with different slopes. We leave it up to readers to figure out which line is GDP and which is total debt.
http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2012/04/DEbt%20to%20GDP_0.jpg (http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2012/04/DEbt%20to%20GDP.jpg)
And as noted yesterday (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/treasury-forecasts-447-billion-funding-needs-thru-end-september-250-billion-shy-trendline), now that the end of month auction has settled, one can easily see why the Treasury forecast of debt issuance through the end of September will only be correct if somehow the Treasury finds a way to print its own money without reliance on the Fed, or else every US taxpayer somehow hikes their tax payments by 15% voluntarily. Good luck on both counts.
http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2012/04/Treasury%20Forecast%205.1_0.jpg (http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2012/04/Treasury%20Forecast%205.1.jpg)
Then again who cares about the short term. Here is what the total US debt/GDP will look like, frankly under either administration as both the presidential candidate and the incumbent have absolutely no idea how to fix an excess debt problem without issuing more debt (nor do they have any interest to).
http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2012/04/021612geithner2_0.jpg (http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user5/imageroot/2012/04/021612geithner2.jpg)
And for those who still believe that insurmanoutable debt is suicide, we have good news, you are right, at least according to a new paper (http://www.nber.org/papers/w18015.pdf)by Reinhart, Rogoff and Reinhart (via The American (http://blog.american.com/2012/05/new-study-high-u-s-debt-levels-could-mean-a-quarter-century-of-weak-growth/)):
– We identify 26 episodes of public debt overhang–where debt to GDP ratios exceed 90% of GDP–since 1800. We find that in 23 of these 26 episodes, individual countries experienced lower growth than the average of other years. Across all 26 episodes, growth is lower by an average of 1.2%.

Landmark Lawsuit by US Home Owners Implicates Obama and Big Banks in Massive Global Laundering Scheme

http://wakeup-world.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/money_laundering-300x203.jpg (http://wakeup-world.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/money_laundering.jpg)5th May 2012
By Madison Ruppert (http://wakeup-world.com/category/contributing-writers/madison-ruppert/)




A new lawsuit, which is bordering on the unbelievable, implicates the Obama administration and some of the world’s largest banks in the largest international money laundering case in history.
This global money laundering network was allegedly formed during the Obama administration and helped banks rob U.S. home owners through offshore affiliates in infamous tax havens and money laundering hubs like the Cayman Island, Isle of Man, Luxembourg and Malaysia.
A press release (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/home-owners-across-the-nation-sue-all-bank-servicers-and-their-offshore-havens-spire-law-officially-announces-filing-of-landmark-lawsuit-2012-04-23) published by Marketwatch (a website owned by the Wall Street Journal) via Marketwire on April 23, 2012, by America’s Spire Law Group, revealed that a mass tort action on behalf of home owners across the United States has been filed in the Supreme Court of New York, County of Kings.


The release states that the suit implicates every major bank servicer and their subsidiaries, as well as the Obama administration which allegedly was privately ratifying the formation of shell corporations in violation of not only the USA PATRIOT Act, but also State and Federal law as well.
This is all while the administration was very publicly encouraging home owners to modify their loans.
The suit, which has been assigned Index No. 500827 and was filed by the Spire Law Group (http://spirelawgroupllp.com/Home.html) and their affiliates and partners throughout the United States, also alleges that Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, Wells Fargo Bank, Citibank, Citigroup, One West Bank, among other federally chartered banks stole hundreds of millions of dollars from U.S. home owners through little-known offshore companies.
The money was then laundered through offshore corporations, and surprisingly the suit is quite explicit in identifying specific companies as well as the countries they are located in which were used to help defraud huge sums of money from Americans.
These activities are violations of the guidelines of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), New York state law, not to mention other states as well as federal law.
Columbus, Ohio-based trial lawyer and author Eric J. Wittenberg made some quite heated statements on behalf of the plaintiffs in the case.
“The laundering of trillions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer money — and the wrongful taking of the homes of those taxpayers — was known by the Administration and expressly supported by it. Evidence uncovered by the plaintiffs revealed that the Administration ignored its own agencies’ reports — and reports from the Department of Homeland Security — about this situation, dating as far back as 2010,” Wittenberg said.
“Worse, the Administration purported to endorse a ‘national bank settlement’ without disclosing or having any public discourse whatsoever about the thousands of foreign tax havens now wholly owned by our nation’s banks. Fortunately, no home owner is bound to enter into this fraudulent bank settlement,” he added.
The many home owners involved in the case are suing these major financial institutions and their foreign allies not only for fraud and larceny but also for conversion and violations of provisions of New York state law and other laws.
If this lawsuit is what they are making it out to be, there could be a great deal of incredibly important information brought to light.
The press release states, “
This lawsuit explains why loans were, in general, rarely modified after 2009. It explains why the entire bank crisis worsened, crippling the economy of the United States and stripping countless home owners of their piece of the American dream. It is indeed a fact that the Administration has spent far more money stopping bank investigations, than they have investigating them. When the Administration’s agencies (like the FDIC) blew the whistle, their reports were ignored.”
“As if it is not bad enough that banks collect money and do not credit it to homeowners’ accounts, and as if it is not bad enough that those banks then foreclose when they know they do not have a legally enforceable interest in the realty, we now learn that they have been operating under unbridled free reign given by the Administration and some states’ Attorneys General in formulating this international money laundering network,” Wittenberg said.
“Now that the light of day has been shined on it, I believe we can all rest assured that the beginning of the end of the bank crisis has arrived,” he added.
All I can say is I hope he is right. This is truly one of the most astounding cases which has come to light in recent history, to say the least.
If this case is successful it could very well mean a major blow to the entire corrupt global financial system.

indeed, i mentioned his book, that he made some 40 years ago in a thread sometime ago,. the age between the technocratic era..

it describes whats going on in the world very accurately, even teh parts about how austerity measures put in by technocratic (bankers pawns) leaders would cause riots and upheavel.. an how if they managed to keep the selling off national resources until after such technocratic dictators had been installed, then they would have more success..

but most people see this as conspiracy.. even tho he is obama's puppet master...

how can it be conspiracy when he wrote about it, published it, and is a like a bible for some..


go back to your product release's and trailer parks..

nothing to see here, just your(our planets) countries resources being siphoned off...

one of the reasons i made this thread was so people could check the sourced links provided and get a clearer undersanding of the whole picture..

but i understand thats impossible to do when you have an ego,. and you think that evolution is natural selection thus separating the ONE from the WHOLE

you know what the score is.. make them non terrorists, after uou haz trained them.. start war in iran, initiate your own puppet mdk government

but the Iranians are clever.. they saw what the americans did with mosedek? and the american imperialism they brought , that made the only true democracy vote for what they have had for the last 20 years....

Press Release from Save Leyton Marsh Group

http://www.onnuk.host22.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Prison_Industrial_Complex_hand-300x218.jpgOn Thursday 26th April Mike Wells, a citizen journalist who writes for the Games Monitor website, was filming unsafe working practices on Leyton Marsh at the chaotically managed Olympic construction site.
As a result of his attempt to film and draw attention to the unsafe practices of an excavator working close to pedestrians on Sandy Lane (the pathway running adjacent to Leyton Marsh), Mike was assaulted first by the driver who did not want the activities filmed and was then brutally restrained by a number of bailiffs resulting in injuries to his ribs and forehead.
Several Shergroup employees dragged him 200m to Lea Valley Ice Centre car park under duress. Several shocked members of the public tried unsuccessfully to intervene and prevent further injury to Mike who had a gash on his forehead and was clearly in pain.
His assailants refused to show ID or explain their actions but appeared very agitated and were ordering people to keep away. One of them was recording the scene and bystanders on video.
Police arrived and immediately arrested Mike, who was driven away in handcuffs after being treated for some time in an ambulance.
It was very difficult to get information about where Mike was being held. Eventually we discovered that he was at Stoke Newington Police station, from where he was transferred to Leyton Custody Centre (a facility specially built for the Olympics).
There was an emergency court hearing at Bow Magistrate Court last Saturday, and this is where Mike’s case becomes even more troubling. Despite being assaulted and injured, the CPS requested that Mike be denied bail. They claimed that the members of the public that witnessed the incident were protestors, taking part in a ‘highly organised event’ in which protestors were menacing security staff by taking images of them. They claimed that members of the public were ‘professional’ and had set out to intimidate staff and security. Mike, like all of us, should have the right to document the destruction, contamination and unsafe working practices on our marsh without being accused of criminal activity.
It was claimed that Mike ‘jumped into the excavator’ (a completely unfounded accusation) and in the next breath that he ‘published events about the Olympics’ as if Mike were involved in propagating incitement to violent protest. Mike is completely dedicated to covering the truth about the Olympics and its effect on communities; he has never incited or carried out any violent protest on Leyton Marsh and in fact has been the victim of violence from the bailiffs there. Despite what Mike has suffered in pursuit of covering the truth, he was denied bail on the basis he was of ‘no fixed abode’. Mike lives on the Lea in a narrowboat. This is exploiting the strict use of the term in a disingenuous way to justify denying bail.
What is even more shocking is that the Magistrate mistakenly claimed that Mike should not have been on Sandy Lane as this is an area ‘covered by the injunction’. The injunction prohibits blocking construction vehicles and staff; it does not prohibit walking or filming on Sandy Lane, until recently a tranquil public footpath that the ODA claims is open to full public access. On the completely erroneous basis that Mike had broken the injunction, Mike was remanded in custody in Thameside prison for seven days.
He was allowed very little access to the outside world and visits from his friends were denied.
What further punishment will Mike face for speaking the truth?
What threats may we face for speaking the truth about Mike? That remains to be seen. However, for entirely peaceful actions people trying to save our marsh have faced litigation threats, two High Court Injunctions, prison sentences, an eviction, threat of a further possession order and one individual has been slapped with an ASBO which could result in a 5 year prison sentence. The signs are not good.
UPDATE: Mike Wells was given conditional bail today at Bow Magistrates Court. Like Connor Murray’s bail and Simon’s ASBO, this prohibits Mike from going within 100m of the Olympic Park/ athletes village/ any Olympic or Paralympic training venue which effectively makes his job reporting on the Olympics for Games Monitor impossible.

Startling revelations about how the Gulf is still leaking huge amounts of oil, and the Corexit is still being applied in huge quantities.
While other natural remedies like Steve Pedigo's (OSEI) are ignored.

An excavation of an archaeological site in Guatemala has uncovered Mayan astronomical records dating to the ninth century A.D. The tabulated numbers, which predate existing Mayan astronomical documents by several hundred years, chart the motion of the moon and also seem to relate to the orbits of Mars and Venus. (And good news: they do not predict the world will end this year—in fact, some of the numbers appear to refer to dates far in the future.)

Archaeologists stumbled onto the astronomical tables, inscribed on the walls of a small building, while excavating part of the Xultun ruins, a large, heavily looted archaeological site in northern Guatemala, near its borders with Mexico and Belize. William Saturno, an archaeologist at Boston University (B.U.), recalls that an undergraduate student noticed the remains of a mural on one of the walls, triggering an excavation of the room, which had been partly exposed by looters. On three of the walls the researchers found figural paintings, along with a series of glyphs and numerals.

The presence of lunar glyphs in one of the numerical tables raised the possibility that the table related to astronomy. After all, evidence from later centuries has proved that the Maya kept highly accurate records of astronomical phenomena. But the context of the numerals, many of which have deteriorated beyond recognition, was not immediately clear. "It took some decoding," Saturno says.

The numbers on the table, arranged in columns of three numerals each, looked like calendrical entries in well-studied Mayan manuscripts, written on bark paper, that survive from sometime around the 13th to 15th centuries. So the researchers took the numbers to be days tallied in units of the culture's Long Count calendar—the three numerals in each column representing multiples of a 360-day "tun," a 20-day "winal" and a one-day "k'in," respectively. The number column 13/5/4, then, would equal 4,784 days (13 x 360 + 5 x 20 + 4). The dates of the final two columns, which are the most legible, are separated by 178 days. The date in the third-to-last column, which is mostly legible, looks to be separated from that in the penultimate column by 177, 178 or 179 days, pointing to a common pattern.

The Maya clustered lunar months into sixes, making lunar "semesters" lasting 177 or 178 days. The variation accounts for the calendar's whole-number approximation of a messy decimal number, in much the same way that the modern calendar uses 366-day leap years to keep the months in sync with Earth's orbit around the sun. The researchers suggest that the Xultun table marks a series of lunar semesters over some 13 years. Saturno and his colleagues from B.U., the University of Texas at Austin and Colgate University report their findings in the May 11 issue of Science.

Another table contains four much larger numbers whose meaning is less clear. But all four numbers are divisible by 18,980, the number of days that makes up what is known as the Calendar Round, a combined cycle of the solar year and the Mayan ritual year. "It turns out these numbers are really important anniversaries," Saturno says. "They're essentially numbers that represent multiples of Maya calendrical periods."

Intriguingly, the tables also hint at planetary motions. All four numbers are multiples of 780, the number of days it takes Mars to return to the same location in the sky, a tally known as the synodic period of Mars. The tallies are also closely related to the position of Venus: all four are whole- or half-number multiples of Venus's synodic period. If the numbers indeed represent days, the largest entry in the table, 2,448,420, lies thousands of years in the future.

When the BRICs add gold, it is eschewed in a 'well, its diversification' argument. But when the bankers' bankers' bank - The IMF - starts adding Gold to its reserves to cover higher expected credit risk losses (read major devaluations of fiat currency exposure), perhaps - just perhaps - the 'rationality put (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/cashin-rationality-put)' we noted earlier is becoming a little more expensive in the minds of Lagarde and her colleagues. As Bloomberg News reports (http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-05-11/imf-to-add-2-dot-3-billion-net-income-to-reserves-amid-rising-risks), “The Fund is facing increased credit risk in light of a surge in program lending in the context of the global crisis,” the IMF staff wrote in a report released today, adding "there is a need to increase the Fund’s reserves in order to help mitigate the elevated credit risks,” and as CommodityOnline (http://www.commodityonline.com/news/imf-to-buy-gold-worth-$23-billion-as-credit-risk-increases-48052-3-48053.html) added: "The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is planning to purchase more than $2 billion worth of gold on account of rising global risks. The IMF currently holds around 2800 tonnes of gold at various depositories"

Barack Obama swept into office on a tide of giddy enthusiasm. His “Hope and Change” was a pledge to reverse Bush era policies, including socialism for the rich, adventurism in the Middle East, and attacks on civil liberties. He announced his intention to serve as a transformational leader, invoking Abraham Lincoln, FDR and Ronald Reagan as role models. Despite the frigid temperatures, people poured into Washington, DC to hear his inauguration speech, wanting to be part of a remarkable passage.

The great mysteries of life are quite elusive. We do not have the "hard facts" needed to feel sure that our theories about the mysteries are true. Sometimes we feel sure, but convincing others is not so easy. Alas, they want "facts," and we cannot produce them. Well, times are changing.

This is the start of a series of articles that will present many "facts" concerning some major mysteries of our world. These "facts" will show evidence that -

The ancient sites around the world are very precisely positioned on a global coordinate system in relation to the position of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
The positions of the sites are given in the geometry of their construction.

A very ancient system of numbers was used in the system, which we will call "Gematria."

"Gematrian" numbers are found in ancient myths and religions, including the Bible.

Gematrian numbers were used in systems of weights and measures by ancient peoples, including the Greeks, the Egyptians, the Persians, the Babylonians and the Romans.

The ancient Mayans used Gematrian numbers in their very accurate timekeeping.

The Code system uses mathematical constants, such as pi and the radian.

The system also uses conventions that are still in use, such as the 360 degree circle, 60 minute degree, 60 second minute, the base-ten numbering system, the 12-inch foot, and the 5280-foot mile.

The Nazca Line ground markings "locate themselves" on The Code Matrix system.

Crop circle formations suggest the same ancient numbers by way of their positions and measurements.

The very ancient "Monuments on Mars," including "The Face on Mars," were positioned in exact locations, just as the ancient sites on Earth.

Description and uses

A dildo is a sexual device resembling a penis in shape, size, and overall appearance. Some expand this definition to include vibrators (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vibrator_%28sex_toy%29).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-0) Others exclude penis prosthetic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosthetic) aids, which are known as "extensions". Some include penis-shaped items clearly designed with vaginal penetration in mind even if they are not true approximations of a penis. Some people include devices designed for anal penetration (butt plugs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butt_plug)) while others do not. These devices are often used by people of all genders and sexual orientations (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_orientation), for masturbation or for other sexual activity.
Uses

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/9/99/Question_book-new.svg/50px-Question_book-new.svg.png (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Question_book-new.svg) This unreferenced section requires citations (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citing_sources) to ensure verifiability (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Verifiability). Vaginal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaginal) and/or anal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anus) penetration are the obvious uses. Dildos have fetishistic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_fetishism) value as well, and some users wield them in other ways, running them over the skin during foreplay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreplay) for example. If of appropriate sizes, they can be used as gags (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gag_%28BDSM%29), for oral penetration for a sort of artificial fellatio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fellatio). Some people also use specially designed dildos to stimulate the G-spot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G-spot).
A dildo to be inserted in the anus and remain in place for a period of time is called a butt-plug (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butt-plug). Dildos used for repeated anal penetration, such as thrusting, are usually referred to as simply "dildos" and must have a flared base to be safe for anal play. There are also double-ended dildos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_penetration_dildo), with different-sized shafts pointing in the same direction, used by women to accomplish both anal and vaginal penetration at once, or for two partners to share a single dildo. In this case, the dildo acts as a sort of "see-saw"; each partner takes an end and receives stimulation.
There are dildos designed to be worn in a harness, sometimes called a strap-on (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strap-on_dildo) harness or strap-on dildo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strap-on_dildo), or to be worn inside, sometimes with vibrating (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vibrating) devices attached externally.
Strap-on dildos may be double-ended, in which case they are meant to be worn by users who want to experience vaginal or anal penetration while also penetrating a partner. They may also be used for anal penetration (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_sex) of men. If the penetration is done by a female partner to a male partner, the act is known as pegging (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegging_%28sexual_practice%29).
Other types of dildos include those designed to be fitted to the face of one party, inflatable dildos, and dildos with suction cups attached to the base (sometimes referred to as a wall mount). Other types of harness mounts for dildos (besides strapping to the groin) include thigh mount, face mount, or furniture mounting straps.
Recent social acceptance and popularity has resulted in the emergence of highly adorned dildos. These are often made of expensive materials and may also be jewelled (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewellery).
Etymology

Acryl dildo


The etymology of the word dildo is unclear. The Oxford English Dictionary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_English_Dictionary) (OED) describes the word as being of "obscure origin".[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-OED-1) One theory is that it originally referred to the phallus-shaped peg used to lock an oar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oar) in position on a dory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dory) (small boat). It would be inserted into a hole on the side of the boat, and is very similar in shape to the modern toy. It is possible that the sex toy takes its name from this sailing tool, which also lends its name to the town of Dildo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo,_Newfoundland_and_Labrador) and the nearby Dildo Island (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo_Island) in Newfoundland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newfoundland_and_Labrador), Canada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada). Others suggest the word is a corruption (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corruption_%28grammar%29) of Italian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_language) diletto (for "delight").[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-2)
According to the OED, the word's first appearance in English was in Thomas Nashe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Nashe)'s Choise of Valentines or the Merie Ballad of Nash his Dildo (c. 1593).[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-3) The word also appears in Ben Jonson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Jonson)'s 1610 play, The Alchemist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Alchemist_%28play%29). William Shakespeare (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Shakespeare) used the term once in The Winter's Tale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Winter%27s_Tale), believed to be from 1610 or 1611, but not printed until the First Folio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/First_Folio) of 1623.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-4)
The phrase "Dil Doul", referring to a man's penis, appears in the 17th century folk ballad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folk_music) "The Maids Complaint for want of a Dil Doul".[6] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-5) The song was among the many in the library of Samuel Pepys (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Pepys).
Olisbos is a classical term for a dildo, from the Greek ολισβος. A godemiche is a dildo in the shape of a penis with scrotum.
In some modern languages, the names for dildo can be more descriptive, creative or subtle—note, for instance, the Russian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_language) Фаллоимитатор ("phallic imitator"), the Hindi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindi_language) darshildo, the Spanish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish_language) consolador ("consoler"), and the Welsh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_language) cala goeg ("fake penis").
History

Dildos in one form or another have been present in society throughout history. Artifacts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artifact_%28archaeology%29) from the Upper Paleolithic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Upper_Paleolithic) which have previously been described as batons were most likely used for sexual purposes.[7] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-6) However, there appears to be hesitation on the part of archaeologists to label these items as sex toys: as archaeologist Timothy Taylor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Taylor_%28archaeologist%29) put it, "Looking at the size, shape, and—some cases—explicit symbolism of the ice age batons, it seems disingenuous to avoid the most obvious and straightforward interpretation. But it has been avoided."[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-taylor_prehistory-7)[9] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-macaques-8)
The world's oldest known dildo is a siltstone 20-centimeter phallus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phallus) from the Upper Palaeolithic period 30,000 years ago that was found in Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm, Germany (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germany).[10] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-9)

A Glass Dildo


The first dildos were made of stone, tar, wood and other materials that could be shaped as penises and that were firm enough to be used as penetrative sex toys. Chinese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/China) women in the 15th century used dildos made of lacquered wood with textured surfaces. With the invention of modern materials, there appeared the possibility of making dildos of different shapes, sizes, colors and textures.[11] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-10) There have been many references to dildos in the historical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History) and ethnographic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethnography) literature. Haberlandt,[12] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-11) for example, illustrates single and double-ended wooden dildos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_penetration_dildo) from late 19th century Zanzibar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zanzibar).
Legal and ethical issues

The possession and sale of dildos is illegal in some jurisdictions, including India (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India).[13] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-palika-12)
United States

Until recently, many Southern (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Southern_states) and some Great Plains states (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Plains) banned the sale of dildos completely, either directly or through laws regulating "obscene devices".[14] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-13) In 2007, a federal appeals court upheld Alabama's law prohibiting the sale of sex toys.[15] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-14) The law, the Anti-Obscenity Enforcement Act (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Obscenity_Enforcement_Act) of 1998, was also upheld by the Alabama Supreme Court (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alabama_Supreme_Court) on September 11, 2009.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)]
In February 2008, a federal appeals court overturned a Texas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas) statute banning the sales of dildos and other sexual toys, deeming such a statute as violating the Constitution's 14th Amendment on the right to privacy.[16] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-15) The appeals court cited Lawrence v. Texas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawrence_v._Texas), where the U.S. Supreme Court (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Supreme_Court) in 2003 struck down bans on consensual sex between gay couples, as unconstitutionally aiming at "enforcing a public moral code by restricting private intimate conduct." Similar statutes have been struck down in Kansas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kansas) and Colorado (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorado). As of 2009, Alabama is the only state where a law prohibiting the sale of sex toys remains on the books.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)]
Some Conservative (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conservatism) Christians (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christians) believe that the use of sex toys is immoral and prohibited by The Bible (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bible).[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)] American Baptist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baptist) preacher Dan Ireland (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dan_Ireland_%28minister%29&action=edit&redlink=1) has been an outspoken critic of such devices and has fought to ban them on religious and ethical grounds.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)] According to Ireland, "Sometimes you have to protect the public against themselves....These devices should be outlawed because they are conducive to promiscuity, because they promote loose morals and because they entice improper and potentially deadly behaviors."[17] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-Alabama_vs._Dildos-16) Ireland believes that "there is no moral way to use one of these devices."[17] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-Alabama_vs._Dildos-16)

Dildos may be seen in Greek vase art (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pottery_of_ancient_Greece). Some pieces show their use in group sex or in solitary female masturbation.[18] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-duBois_2003_85-17) One vessel, of about the 6th century BC, depicts a scene in which a woman bends over to perform oral sex (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_sex) on a man, while another man is about to thrust a dildo into her anus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anal_sex).[19] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-18)
They are mentioned several times in Aristophanes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aristophanes)' comedy of 411 BC, Lysistrata (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lysistrata).
LYSISTRATAAnd so, girls, when fucking time comes… not the faintest whiff of it anywhere, right? From the time those Milesians betrayed us, we can’t even find our eight-fingered leather dildos. At least they’d serve as a sort of flesh-replacement for our poor cunts… So, then! Would you like me to find some mechanism by which we could end this war? [20] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-19) Herodas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herodas)' comic Mime VI, written in the 3rd Century BC, is about a woman anxious to discover from a friend where she recently acquired a dildo.
METROI beg you, don't lie,dear Corrioto: who was the man who stitched for you this bright red dildo?[21] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-20) She eventually discovers the maker to be a certain Kerdon, who hides his trade by the front of being a cobbler, and leaves to seek him out.
Page duBois, a classicist and feminist theorist, suggests that dildos were present in Greek art because the ancient Greek male imagination found it difficult to conceive of sex taking place without penetration. Therefore female masturbation or sex between women required an artificial phallus to be used.[18] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-duBois_2003_85-17)
In the early 1590s, the playwright Thomas Nashe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Nashe) wrote a poem known as The Choice of Valentines, Nashe's Dildo or The Merrie Ballad of Nashe his Dildo but this was not published at the time, due to its obscenity.[22] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-coulthart-21) The poem describes a visit to a brothel by a man called "Tomalin". However, the prostitute he hires resorts to using a dildo as he finds himself unable to perform sexually.[23] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-22)
Dildos are humorously mentioned in Act IV, scene iv of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Winter%27s_Tale). This play and Ben Jonson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Jonson)'s play The Alchemist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Alchemist_%28play%29) (1610) are typically cited as the first usage of the word in publication (Nashe's Merrie Ballad was not published until 1899[22] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-coulthart-21)).
John Wilmot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Wilmot,_2nd_Earl_of_Rochester), the 17th century English libertine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertine), published his poem Signor Dildo in 1673. During the Parliamentary session of that year, objections were raised to the proposed marriage of James, Duke of York (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_II_of_England), brother of the King and heir to the throne, to Mary of Modena (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_of_Modena), an Italian Catholic Princess. An address was presented to King Charles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_II_of_England) on 3 November, foreseeing the dangerous consequences of marriage to a Catholic, and urging him to put a stop to any planned wedding '...to the unspeakable Joy and Comfort of all Your loyal Subjects." Wilmot's response was Signior Dildo (You ladies all of merry England) (http://andromeda.rutgers.edu/%7Ejlynch/Texts/dildo.html), a mock address anticipating the 'solid' advantages of a Catholic marriage, namely the wholesale importation of Italian dildos, to the unspeakable joy and comfort of all the ladies of England:
You ladies all of merry EnglandWho have been to kiss the Duchess's hand,Pray, did you not lately observe in the showA noble Italian called Signor Dildo? ... A rabble of pricks who were welcomed before,Now finding the porter denied them the door,Maliciously waited his coming belowAnd inhumanly fell on Signor Dildo ... This ballad was subsequently added to by other authors, and became so popular that Signor became a term for a dildo.[24] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-wilson-23) In the epilogue to The Mistaken Husband (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mistaken_Husband) (1674), by John Dryden (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dryden), an actress complains:
To act with young boys is loving without men.What will not poor forsaken women try?When man's not near, the Signior must supply.[24] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-wilson-23) Dildos are obliquely referred to in Saul Bellow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saul_Bellow)'s novel "The Adventures of Augie March (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Augie_March)"(1953) : "....he had brought me along to a bachelor's stag where two naked acrobatic girls did stunts with false tools". [25] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-24) A dildo called Steely Dan III from Yokohama appears in the William S. Burroughs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_S._Burroughs) novel The Naked Lunch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Naked_Lunch) (1959).[26] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-25)[27] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dildo#cite_note-26) The rock band Steely Dan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steely_Dan) took their name from it.

Mahogany wood dildo


Rubber dildos, usually incorporating a steel spring for stiffness, became available in the 1940s. This was a less than satisfactory arrangement because of the potential for serious injury from cuts from the spring when the rubber finally cracked and came apart.
Later, PVC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PVC) dildos with a softer PVC filler became popular. Most of the inexpensive dildos sold today are made this way.
PVC and jelly-rubber toys have often been found to be problematic because they contain unsafe phthalates (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phthalate), softeners added to many plastics that are also found in some jewelry, food containers, and other soft rubber toys. Phthalates have been linked to health problems such as cancer and prenatal defects. Products made of PVC or jelly rubber cannot be sterilized (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sterilization_%28microbiology%29). Manufacturers recommend using condoms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condom) with these toys if users share them.
In the 1990s, silicone rubber (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silicone_rubber) dildos became more popular, a trend that has continued as the prices have lowered. These are easier to clean and do not have the characteristic plastic aroma of PVC. They were expensive when introduced but are now reasonably priced, making them an excellent choice for the first-time user. Silicone holds body heat well, and is an excellent conductor of vibrations, allowing users to hold a vibrator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vibrator_%28sensual%29) at one end. Silicone is also a robust material (especially when compared to the cheap, unsafe jelly rubber that many dildos are made of) that can be sterilized by boiling or bleaching (using a bleach solution, diluted: 10% bleach 90% water).
High-end, chrome plated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrome_plating) steel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel) dildos are also popular in the BDSM (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BDSM) scene. Some users prefer them because of their hardness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardness), firmness, durability, electrical conductance (see erotic electrostimulation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erotic_electrostimulation)), and low friction, especially when used in conjunction with lubricant. Because they are heavy, they can be used to exercise vaginal PC muscles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pubococcygeus_muscle). (Betty Dodson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Dodson)'s "barbell" is an example.)
A steel dildo may be warmed or cooled in water before use to elicit a range of temperature sensations. It may also retain body heat of the user. Because of its polished nonporous surface, it may be sterilized in boiling water, or in an autoclave (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoclave).
Glass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass) dildos have similar features to steel ones. In most of the cases, glass toys are solid, and made of Pyrex (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyrex) or other types borosilicate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borosilicate) glass (Schott-Duranglas and Simax), although this may vary, depending on the manufacturer. Like steel, glass toys may be used to apply firmer pressure than silicone can to a female's G-spot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G-spot) (urethral sponge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urethral_sponge)) or male's prostate gland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostate_gland). Unlike other types of toys, glass sex toys can also be personalized with inscriptions.
Cyberskin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberskin) is a synthetic material that feels more like human skin. It is a porous material and cannot be sterilized. It often gets sticky after washing (which can be remedied by a dusting of cornstarch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornstarch)) and is more delicate and more prone to rips and tears than silicone dildos. "Packing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packing_%28phallus%29) dildos", which are not designed for penetration, are often made of this material.
Phallus-shaped vegetables and fruits, such as bananas (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana) or zucchini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zucchini) have even been used as dildos, possibly since prehistory. Smooth rocks of phallic shape are suited to use as a dildo. Any object of sufficient firmness and shape could be hypothetically used as a dildo.
Shape

Latex double dildo


Conventionally, many dildos are shaped like a human penis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penis) with varying degrees of detail, others are made to resemble the phallus of male animals. Not all, however, are fashioned to reproduce the male anatomy meticulously, and dildos come in a wide variety of shapes. These may resemble figures, or simply be practical creations which stimulate more easily than conventional designs. In Japan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japan), many dildos are created to resemble animals or cartoon characters, such as Hello Kitty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hello_Kitty), so that they may be sold as toys, thus avoiding obscenity laws (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obscenity). Some dildos have textured surfaces to enhance sexual pleasure.

3 in Chicago Face Terrorism Charges Tied to NATO Protests



CHICAGO — Three men arrested in Chicago on Wednesday night were planning to attack the campaign headquarters of President Obama, the house of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, police stations and financial institutions in downtown Chicago, prosecutors said on Saturday.



The men, who were in Chicago to take part in protests related to the NATO (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/organizations/n/north_atlantic_treaty_organization/index.html?inline=nyt-org) summit meeting taking place here on Sunday and Monday, were charged with criminal acts relating to terrorism, conspiracy to commit terrorism, and possession of explosives.
“The individuals we charged are not peaceful protesters, they are domestic terrorists,” said the state’s attorney, Anita Alvarez. “The charges we bring today are not indicative of a protest movement that has been targeted.”
Lawyers for the defendants described the case as entrapment, saying that a man and a woman who were either informants or undercover law enforcement officials had come up with the plans and provided the materials for explosives. These two people were the only ones who committed any illegal activity, said Michael Deutsch, a lawyer with the National Lawyers Guild.
“From what we’ve learned, we believe it is a setup — entrapment to the highest degree — and it is sensationalism by the police and the state to discredit the protesters who have come here to nonviolently protest,” Mr. Deutsch said.
Bond for the three men — Jared Chase, 27, of New Hampshire; Brent Betterly, 24, of Massachusetts; and Brian Jacob Church, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — was set at $1.5 million each. On Wednesday, police officers and F.B.I. agents raided an apartment in Bridgeport, a neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, after obtaining a no-knock search warrant, according to prosecutors. The six other people who were arrested have been released.
Prosecutors said the three defendants had already assembled four Molotov cocktails from empty beer bottles, with cut bandannas as timing devices. The Molotov cocktails were to be used in attacks against police stations, including Police Headquarters, which would divert attention from other attacks around the city, they said.
Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for the Obama campaign, declined to comment and referred questions to the Chicago Police Department.
The defendants also had plans for a pipe bomb at the time of their arrests, prosecutors said. Throwing stars, swords, brass knuckles, a hunting bow, a shield with protruding nails, gas masks, an assault rifle and a map with details of escape routes from the city were also said to have been found in the apartment. They also had plans to to buy several other assault rifles, prosecutors said.
“The city doesn’t know what it is in for, and after NATO the city will never be the same,” a prosecutor quoted Mr. Church as saying.
The police department said Saturday that there is no imminent threat to the city. Prosecutors described the defendants as self-identifying anarchists, a depiction their lawyers disputed.
According to a statement from the National Lawyers Guild, police officers broke down the doors of the apartment with their weapons drawn, and did not have a search warrant or consent.
The three men were also involved in a confrontation with police officers last week. In an edited video of the encounter, which one of the defendants posted to YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=TudIyxxAboA) before Wednesday’s raid, the police appear to threaten violence against demonstrators.
Chicago has been bracing for a weekend of political protest, which started on Friday when several thousand demonstrators filled a downtown plaza. A far larger “anti-NATO” march is expected on Sunday, and violent images from earlier global gatherings, like a World Trade Organization meeting in Seattle in 1999, have left some in Chicago on edge — businesses closed, windows boarded and the Loop oddly quiet.
Even as prosecutors announced the charges, hundreds of protesters gathered in Mr. Emanuel’s North Side neighborhood for a demonstration against a plan to close half of the city’s mental health clinics.
Police officers, some wearing riot helmets, lined the mayor’s yard Saturday morning in anticipation of the march past his house.
Idalmy Carrera reported from Chicago and Joshua Brustein from New York. Steven Yaccino and Monica Davey contributed reporting from Chicago.

Nice lil piece this..

what do you make/think of this bob???


Hundreds of protesters have hit the streets in the Midwest US City of Chicago, condemning the first NATO summit being held in the country away from the capital City of Washington. Hundreds of people joined the last of several protest rallies on Saturday evening in the busy Chicago Loop area, marching downtown where scuffles broke out between demonstrators and police who used batons against the protesters and push them to the ground. With massive police forces and protesters remaining on Chicago streets late Saturday, it was not yet clear how and when the night would wind up, local press reports said.

Chicago police accused of planting evidence in 'Molotov cocktail' plot
Police say men planned to target Obama election HQ but supporters of the men say they intended to protest at the Nato summit

Lawyers for three protesters arrested on terrorist-related charges ahead of the Nato summit have accused police of entrapping them and encouraging an alleged bomb-making effort.
The three were arrested on Wednesday night when members of the Chicago police department battered their way into an apartment in the Bridgeport area of the city.
According to court documents released on Saturday, the three men considered targeting Barack Obama's re-election headquarters and the home of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.
The Chicago police department said the men, described as self-proclaimed anarchists and members of the "Black Bloc" movement that has disrupted international gatherings in the past, were arrested on Wednesday and charged on Friday with conspiracy to commit terrorism, providing material support for terrorism and possession of an explosive incendiary device.
The three men charged were listed as Brian Church, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Jared Chase, 27, of Keene, New Hampshire, and Brent Betterly, 24, from Massachusetts.
At a hearing on Saturday bail was set at $1.5m for each of the three. Their next court appearance is on Tuesday.
Supporters of the three men disputed the charges, saying the men had come to protest at the Nato summit peacefully and that the police had confused beer-making equipment with explosives.
A lawyer for the three, Michael Deutsch, said undercover police officers had entrapped them by infiltrating the group and encouraging the bomb-making effort. The Chicago police department declined to comment on the tactics employed in the case.
The Cook County state attorney's office said the three men had other weapons including a mortar, knives and a hunting bow. It said they considered attacking police stations and cars in Chicago to disrupt police operations for the two-day Nato summit that begins on Sunday.
"Some of the proposed targets included campaign headquarters of US President Barack Obama, the personal residence of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and certain downtown financial institutions," the court papers said.
On Saturday several hundred activists protested outside Emanuel's home. The event was peaceful.
"The men had been making Molotov cocktails out of empty beer bottles filled with gasoline and fitted with cut bandanas for fuses," Cook County state attorney Anita Alvarez told a news conference after the bond hearing.
"It is pretty clear from the evidence they were making the bombs," Alvarez said. "There was a lot of discussion about making these Molotov cocktails and what they were going to do with them."
The charges were the state's first for violation of Illinois anti-terrorism statutes, she said.
"When it became evident there was an overt act in this conspiracy, we had to act," Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy said, adding the investigation that began in early May was continuing. "We did not want to take this case down as quickly as we did but we had to because of the imminent threat."
Deutsch, the attorney representing the suspects, said at the hearing that police had planted weapons at the scene of the arrests. "This is a way to stir up prejudice against a people who are exercising their First Amendment rights," Deutsch said. "There were undercover police officers that ingratiated themselves with people who come from out of town."
In a case earlier this month five self-described anarchists were charged with plotting to blow up a bridge near Cleveland after planting fake explosives underneath that federal agents had sold them.
Natalie Wahlberg, a member of the Occupy Chicago movement protesting against income inequality, said: "The charges are utterly ridiculous. CPD [Chicago police department] doesn't know the difference between home beer-making supplies and Molotov cocktails."
The National Lawyers Guild, a group of volunteer lawyers representing the protesters, said on Facebook that police "broke down doors with guns drawn and searched residences without a warrant or consent".
Alvarez said police obtained a warrant from a judge before executing the raid and arrests.
Thousands of security personnel have been deployed to monitor demonstrations in the week leading up to the two-day Nato summit that starts on Sunday. Obama and representatives from 60 countries are to discuss the war in Afghanistan and other international security issues.
On Friday roughly 2,500 people protested loudly but peacefully, mostly over economic issues, at a downtown Chicago plaza and throughout the surrounding streets.
Police said more than a dozen people had been arrested related to Nato, mostly for trespassing. One man was arrested during the protests after he climbed a bridge tower to rip down a banner advertising the Nat summit, police said

Low-cost housing hard to fill, even in upscale Montgomery



Montgomery Township wants to make a deal.
In the market for housing? How does a one-bedroom condo for $74,000 sound, or a two-bedroom unit for only $123,000?
The units, available for low- and moderate-income buyers, seem priced to sell. But the township is seeing sluggish interest in several of its affordable housing units for sale, despite the lingering effects of the recession and the high cost of living in Montgomery, where the average residential property was valued at $508,521 in 2010, according to property tax data from the state Department of Community Affairs.
“We used to fill the units much faster,” said Megan York, vice president of planning with Community, Grants, Planning and Housing (CGP&H), the East Windsor-based agency that Montgomery retains to coordinate its affordable housing program. “Before, we would have households on the waiting list, reading to go,” she said.
An affluent community with a well-regarded school system, Montgomery typically has little trouble attracting people interested in living in a well-to-do suburb without taking on a hefty mortgage or rent payment. And to some extent, it still doesn’t. Vacancies exist at some affordable rental properties, but most are filled quickly and the majority of for-sale units are occupied.
But the township and CGP&H are accelerating marketing for the six empty condos and sounding the call that middle and working-class residents can afford to live in Montgomery.
“People don’t even know they could afford a home in this price range,” said York. “(Many) aren’t even looking. We’re trying to get the word out.”
York said Montgomery Township’s newly found availabilities stem not from a lack of low- or middle-income buyers, but from the difficulty they may experience obtaining a mortgage.
In many instances, banks and loan agencies have tightened mortgage requirements, making it harder and more time-consuming to apply.
“The credit score requirements are tough,” said York, as are the down payments many banks request.
“A lot of banks want to see a 20 percent down payment, which can be tough to come up with,” she said. “People being unemployed or underemployed, they can’t afford mortgages.”
New York transplant Pat Neuhaus counts herself as an affordable housing success story. Last year, she bought a two-bedroom condo in Montgomery for $98,000 with the help of an affordable housing nonprofit organization now known as Central Jersey Housing Resource Center. But without the organization’s help, she might never have known she could afford a place of her own after losing her parents, selling their home and undergoing credit counseling, she said.
Affordable housing advocates are looking to increase visibility of what’s available in local towns and to streamline the process so that renters or buyers don’t have to bounce around from agency to agency looking for housing. The state provides a town-by-town database of affordable units, as do numerous affordable housing nonprofits and consultants, but buyers or renters unfamiliar with the process may not know where to find information.
“It’s a matter of getting the word out,” said York. “A lot of people don’t know how to get this.”
Other nearby townships with socioeconomic demographics similar to Montgomery’s — the Princetons and West Windsor, for example — typically don’t have issues filling their affordable units, especially rentals.
For those interested in buying a home, Princeton Township’s master list of for-sale units — from efficiencies to three-bedroom townhouses — currently totals 700, according to Christy Peacock, the township’s affordable housing coordinator. Six units, all condos, are currently available.
Some developments in West Windsor are sifting through more than 1,000 affordable housing applications, and in Princeton Community Village, a low- and moderate-income development in Princeton Township, the wait for two-bedroom apartments can take as long as three years.
“We’ve always been running one- to three-year (waits) depending on the unit size,” said Sandra Persichetti, executive director of Princeton Community Housing, a nonprofit organization that oversees nearly 500 low- and moderate-income units in Princeton Township and Princeton Borough.
Under Montgomery’s affordable housing income standards, set by the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) for the Somerset, Hunterdon and Middlesex counties region, a single person has to make $35,700 a year or less to be considered low-income, and $57,120 or less for moderate-income designation.
COAH, a state agency, is responsible for setting and monitoring municipal affordable housing obligations in New Jersey.
By COAH standards, low-income limits for Mercer County are currently set at $31,118 for a single person, or $44,454 for a family or household of four.
Income limits may be set by COAH, or it may follow federal guidelines fashioned by agencies such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Some towns or housing agents go by a percentage of income to calculate purchase prices for their affordable for-sale units. Princeton Township, for example, calculates prices at 28 percent of gross household income.
While available units may appear to be a side effect of a surplus of affordable housing, Persichetti said, low- and moderate-income apartments and homes are in even more demand as people continue to struggle with unemployment or underemployment.
“One-, two-, three-year waiting lists in my mind equates to a serious need for affordable housing,” she said. “The mere fact that we have wait lists tells me there’s a need.”

The Case Against Affordable Housing
http://livingonthenet.com/Common%20Images/Emblem02Home.gif (http://livingonthenet.com/default.php) More on Trenton (http://livingonthenet.com/Trenton/Trenton%20Page.htm)

Affordable housing is the wrong way to revitalize Trenton
(The article originally appeard in the Trenton Downtowner, September 2002)
by Dan Dodson
Rising median income is the surest sign that a city is revitalizing, but Trenton has lost ground over the last decade. According to the 2000 Census, New Jersey’s median household income has risen 4% over the last decade to $54,226 when adjusted for inflation and Mercer county’s has risen 6% to $56,612. Meanwhile, Trenton’s median household income has actually decreased 6.7%, when adjusted to inflation, to $31,074, that’s right, decreased.
There are only three ways this could have happened: 1) Trentonians didn’t receive pay increases, 2) highly paid people moved away, or 3) low income people moved in. The debate over housing won’t affect salaries much but it has everything to do with immigration in and out of our city.
The debate over housing is difficult
Affordable housing is a popular cause because it’s easy to want people to have nice homes. Arguing against the cause elicits strong emotions and breeds suspicion of racism and classism. The debate is made harder because the unintended consequences of subsidized housing manifest themselves over long periods of time to which the press and politicians have difficulty responding. Finally, workers in both governmental and non-governmental agencies tied to the affordable housing industry create a powerful lobbying force to which the public responds.
I take the approach that real public debate needs to think beyond short term benefits no matter how uncomfortable it may be.
Why is subsidized housing a bad idea for Trenton?
Building homes for low income people sounds like a good idea. But if it were such a great idea, why aren't our wealthy suburban neighbors doing it instead of paying us to do it for them?
More low income housing won’t revitalize Trenton
Becoming Princeton’s poor neighbor isn’t sustainable. One argument for affordable housing subsidies is that working people need a place to live and all those jobs in Princeton and West Windsor would go unfilled without affordable housing. That’s true, but low income housing also places a burden on police, social services, schools and has a negative impact on property values. Overburdening a city with low income neighborhoods drains the very social welfare systems meant to support the poor. The Mt. Laurel money that rich towns pay for Trenton to develop housing doesn’t cover these social costs. It’s a great deal for Princeton and a bad deal for Trenton.
Average is a great goal for Trenton
According to eneighborhoods.com which provides quality of life information to leading real estate brokers, Trenton’s low income level ranks it in the bottom 9% of communities in New Jersey. Our schools are in the bottom 2% and our crime is in the bottom 1%. Students of NJ policy know that crime and school performance are highly correlated with a town’s median income and not even increased school funding seems to make a difference. The data for Hamilton, Princeton and Trenton show this to be true.
Because Trenton’s ratables are lower than our neighbors, we are always in the position of having to beg for more than our fair share of state, federal and private funds. Even with these donations and the highest tax rate in the county, the city budget is always under strain, our streets are littered and pot-holed and we’re closing firehouses.
If our incomes and home values were average, Trenton would no longer have these problems and with our history, charm and density would be a much better place to live than Hamilton.
Trenton has an oversupply of low income housing
According to the NJ Guide to Affordable Housing, Trenton has almost 6000 publicly funded affordable housing units; Hamilton has 436 and West Windsor 161. According to the 2000 census 89% of owner occupied homes were valued at under $100,000, 89% of rents were under $1000/month and 11% of rents were under $200/month. Only 0.5% of homes in Trenton are valued at more than $300,000. Trenton’s median home value is only $65,500, much below the $120,000 median national price and $171,988 in New Jersey. Trenton is a low cost housing haven in the middle of the highest priced state in the union. It is disingenuous to argue that Trenton has a shortage of affordable housing when the evidence clearly points to the contrary.
Downtowner readers who surely aced their college Economics courses, will know that increasing the supply of a product pushes down prices and then stimulates demand. When a family moves into new affordable housing there is always another family ready to move into their old apartment. Because Trenton has so many low income housing units, it is a very popular destination for low income people moving into central Jersey. We should be more worried about creating a better community for the folks who already live here than attracting low income newcomers.
Affordable housing initiatives hurt revitalization efforts
Low cost housing is not a bad thing and a healthy economy produces all types of housing and even allows housing stock to change in value over time. The damage is done when housing is restricted to a certain income group. Income restrictions prevent housing units from gaining value if a neighborhood improves. Therefore, the only direction income restricted housing and the neighborhoods surrounding it can go, is down. That’s what has happened with public housing projects.
If Trenton can find a way to move its median income up, then its quality of life factors will improve as well. Since affordable housing production moves income levels down, it has the opposite effect.
Trenton needs to be attractive to people with the money to build and renovate expensive homes, spend money in our restaurants and support our cultural organizations. More neighborhoods with homes in the $200,000 to $400,000 range will attract these middle class emigrants. A manageable urban city like Trenton could be a very attractive alternative to suburban sprawl, if only we provide a reason to move here.

Shipping Containers Offer Low-Cost Housing Alternative To Desperate Buyers


The foreclosure crisis and lackluster rental market are pushing homeowners to look into more affordable housing options. The coolest so far: shipping container homes.

Commonly used to house Army troops and other contractors, these repurposed containers feature pared-down designs and basic amenities: a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

One woman, who identifies herself to Faircompanies.com as Lulu, explains in the video below how she found and renovated her shipping container home post-recession (via Inman News):



If you're not as DIY-savvy as Lulu, US companies like New Jersey-based Sea Box, Inc. and New York's based 21st Century Homes & Structures construct these homes, which are said to be eco-friendly, sturdy and disaster-proof (a plus in this climate).

Of course, they're cheap too: 21st Century Homes & Structures' containers start at $89 per square foot (up to $1,280 square ft.), which comes to about $100,000.


New Jersey Fossil Dig Endangered by Low Cost Housing and Retail Development Plan


By: Ronda Kaysen MANTUA TOWNSHIP (REUTERS).- Paleontologist Kenneth Lacovara is looking deep in a New Jersey silt mine for the exact moment, 65 million years ago, when all dinosaurs perished. That secret could be harder to uncover if the fossils here can no longer be unearthed after a housing and retail development is built on this open pit. Lacovara, an associate professor of biology at Drexel University in Philadelphia, looks at this 40-foot deep hole at the end of a dirt road and sees a line in the sand where the Cretaceous period begins and ends. Below that line are dinosaurs, above it, not a single one. He thinks that the creatures his team has been uncovering here all died en masse when a meteor struck the earth and changed the course of geologic history. If his theory proves correct, it would be the only burial ground of its kind and provide scientists with a living laboratory to study how the dinosaurs became extinct. New Jersey is the birthplace of dinosaur paleontology. The first nearly complete dinosaur skeleton ever discovered was a Hadrosauraus found in Haddonfield in 1858. But over the years, the numerous silt mines that made for great dinosaur digging were replaced with housing developments and strip malls. Today, this site in a southwestern corner of the state is the only remaining mine for greensand, a silt used for fertilizer and water softener. It's also the only access to the late Cretaceous period on the entire eastern seaboard. Scientists have been digging here for nearly a century, uncovering prehistoric sharks, crocodiles and even saber tooth herring. Two weeks ago, the team uncovered an 800-pound sea turtle estimated to be 65 million years old. "This site is the last existing window into the ancient Cretaceous period in the eastern half of the United States. It's extraordinary," said Lacovara, who recently discovered a new species of dinosaur in Patagonia that is believed to be the second largest dinosaur ever found. But the township of Mantua, a community of 15,000 people, has other plans for the site. Township officials would like to see the mine closed and a retail and lower cost housing development built in its place. A developer has drawn up plans that include shops and affordable housing. At a meeting scheduled for July 15, they will discuss, among other things, the historic nature of the site and steps toward development. Inversand, the mine's owner, has been operating the site since 1926, digging greensand. For years, the company has had a close relationship with paleontologists, alerting them when they came across large fossils. "If we find something beyond the routine shark tooth or clam, we call them up," said Inversand president Alan Davis. The biggest find he recalls happened in the 1960s, when workers came across the skull of a Mosasaurus, a giant sea lizard, that now resides at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton. Mining for greensand is no longer economically viable for Inversand and the company would like to end operations. If the mine were to shut down and the pump that continuously clears groundwater out of the area were to turn off, the hole would completely fill with water in a matter of weeks, transforming it into a lake. Davis says the mine could shut within three years. Facing a looming deadline, Lacovara and his team have stepped up their efforts to dig, applying for grants and enlisting students and amateur paleontologists to shovel the gray, muddy sand for pieces of natural history. "I love it. It's instant gratification," said Aja Carter, a freshman at Drexel University, who was volunteering at the site. She recently found a shark vertebra. The scientists worry that without this pit, they'll lose a historic treasure trove. "It will be devastating. It will be the end of an era for so many different reasons," said Jason Schein, assistant curator of natural history at the state museum and one of the lead scientists on the dig. "Every season we find things here that are new to science." (Editing by Barbara Goldberg and Greg McCune)

Rat Life Cycle

Only the life cycle of the Roof Rat (rattus rattus) is discussed on this page, since this is the only rat that is common here in central Florida.


http://www.orlandorats.com/images/babyrats.jpg Roof Rats are born in a nest, in a litter of 6-8 young. The nest is often in a secure place with nesting debris such as in an attic in the insulation. They are born tiny and hairless (pinkies), with eyes sealed shut.

After two weeks of nursing, their eyes open, and within 4 weeks, they are weaned. After three months of life, they are independent and on their own, although they typically use the same habitat as their birthplace (i.e. they live in the same home or attic).

Here we can see a photo of a juvenile rat and a mature adult rat. Older ones sometimes tend to brown a bit, although most of the rats we catch are gray. A lot of the rats that we catch are small rats. This is because they breed in such high numbers, and there are so many young ones. When we're trapping rats in an attic, we'll often get a big one or two, and a number of small ones. This is not the rule, but it does happen from time to time, indicating a possible family of rats.

http://www.orlandorats.com/images/trappedsnaptwosizesz.jpg


http://www.orlandorats.com/images/lifecyclemany.jpg

Rats don't live particularly long in the wild. Like all rodents, they rely upon breeding in high numbers and eating a lot and growing quickly. In this respect, they are somewhat like insects, and thus can sometimes swell to large numbers given the right conditions.

In normal circumstances, disease and predators keep their numbers in check. Rarely do rats live for more than a year in the wild. During that year, however, they can create a lot of new rats and a lot of damage. Just one adult female can create more than 40 new rats in a year. In their lifetime, rats tend to stick to familiar territory.

They are not explorers. They find an area that suits their needs, with shelter and food (human homes and attics quite often fit the bill) and rarely venture more than a few hundred feet from that area. They rarely die naturally, but when they do, it's often in safe place like your attic, and you'll notice the smell. Most will be killed by predators or OrlandoRats, Inc. However, they'll leave their damage and their offspring behind.

The secret life of rats

Smelly, dirty, disease-ridden – this rodent has endured a bad rap for centuries. Now a new film is hoping to change our attitudes towards rattus rattus. And about time too, says Michael McCarthy



Demonisation is an enduring human impulse, not least when we look at the natural world. It is easy and perhaps even comforting, giving us an imagined hold on reality, to slip other living things into moral categories.
We like to think that, while bees are good, wasps are bad; while lions are noble, hyenas are savage; and while orchids are blooms, dandelions are weeds.

We probably do this because we feel reassured, in making such mental pictures, that in some way we can impose a pattern on the staggering diversity of existence, and centre it all upon ourselves. We want to feel that we are the most important bit of creation. We flee from the idea that we don't matter much.

In reality, of course, each of those organisms is simply following its own nature, and the moral categorisation of them, either upwards or downwards, has no roots whatsoever in the real world: it is entirely a product of our prejudices. Yet it is no less durable and hard to shift, for that. At the thought of a wasps' nest, not many people can suppress a shudder. Can you?

So how successful might a project be that attempts to rehabilitate one of these demonised reputations and turn an animal villain into an animal hero? You might think it hopeless to struggle against the tide of human culture; but if you were the creative types who run Pixar, the celebrated Hollywood animation studio that has brought us all those colossally successful movies, from Toy Story and Monsters, Inc. to Finding Nemo and The Incredibles, movies which were engaging precisely because they featured quite improbable characters, you would certainly think this: the idea has dramatic possibilities.

Even if the creature were a rat. Or, you might think down at the Pixar corporate headquarters, especially if that creature were a rat. I mean, rats – yeccch! Sewer rats. Rubbish-dump rats. Plague rats. You ratted on me, you dirty rat. Whaddya think? Mission impossible? Think we can turn a rat into a hero?

You betcha. Here he comes. He is name is Rémy, and on the let's-go-for-broke basis, in Pixar's new movie he lives in a place where a rat might excite more human antagonism than anywhere else – the kitchen of a leading French restaurant in Paris. But he doesn't only live there. He cooks there. This is a rat with a wholly new take on human food: rather than scavenging leftovers, he creates haute cuisine. This is the first rodent superchef.

The name of the movie, please suppress the groan, is Ratatouille, and it is doing solid box office: since it was released in the US at the end of June it has grossed nearly $430m (£215m) world-wide. You can see why. Dramatically, the inversion principle, the villain as hero, is a sound one – look at Bonnie and Clyde. Look at Macbeth, for that matter. But how far might this new take on rattiness go towards altering our anti-rat prejudice, our rattism, our ratophobia? How deeply embedded in us is that?
Perhaps not as deeply as we might at first think. Human demonisations of other creatures are not random; they are generated by encounters between us and them. It is the creatures we have known longest that feature most in our imagery. For example, the okapi, the shorter-necked relative of the giraffe, does not figure in our insults as it was only discovered in 1901. While plenty of people say, you dirty pig, and you dirty dog, nobody says you dirty okapi (as far as I know).

But you dirty rat ...Rats have undoubtedly been associated with humankind, as pests, since the dawn of agriculture and the first storage of grain, 10,000 years ago and more. Yet the image of the animal as a debased creature, one to be used in insult, does not seem to be a very ancient one.

It is a remarkable fact that there is no mention of rats in the Bible, in either th0e Old or the New Testaments. There are more than 40 mentions of dogs, virtually all of them unfavourable; they are regarded as unclean, and to compare someone to a dog is the grossest insult; but rats are nowhere.

Rats are also invisible in classical literature (the Romans did not differentiate between rats and mice, thinking merely that one lot were big and the other small). And even into the Middle Ages, rats barely touch the human imagination; and although it is true that rats were the principal vectors of bubonic plague, especially the Black Death which ravaged Europe in the late 1340s, people did not know that at the time.

Perhaps it was only with the major advances of urbanisation in the last 200 years, and the coming of large-scale sewerage systems, which rats took to opportunistically as a useful habitat, that we began to regard them as vile. If you think about it, around a farmyard, there is not all that much difference in character between a rat and a hedgehog; but if hedgehogs crawled out of the sewers every night to roam the streets of our towns and cities, we might look upon them very differently.

Away from the sewers, rats are generally healthy and robust small animals, which fall into two species: the black rat Rattus rattus and the brown rat Rattus norvegicus.

The black rat was the original European rat, which lived on ships as well as land, and carried the plague across the continent. The brown rat that, despite its scientific name, came from Asia, arrived in Europe in the early 18th century and rapidly spread. Now it has displaced the black rat in much of Britain and Rattus rattus has become one of the UK's rarest mammals, surviving only on Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel and in parts of London's docklands.

Rattus norvegicus , on the other hand, has not only flourished in our sewers; it has given rise to the pet rat, a development that has allowed many people to see these animals differently. (It is thought that pet rats may have been first bred by Queen Victoria's ratcatcher, Jack Black, in the mid 19th century; the first pet rat show was held in 1901).

People who keep pet rats, often bred as all-white, find them sociable and intelligent animals, and no more trouble than other pets. We are even finding that, socially, rats have hidden depths.
Four years ago, two American researchers into neuroscience, Jaak Panksepp and Jeff Burgdorf, published a remarkable study suggesting, in essence, that rats could feel joy, could laugh, and even enjoyed being tickled. They discovered the animals emitted short, ultrasonic "chirping", inaudible to humans without special equipment, both during rough-and-tumble play with each other, and when "tickled", which resembled human laughter.

Humans have "tickle skin" – areas of the body that, when stimulated, generate laughter – and rats have something similar. When it was stimulated, the rats chirped. According to one account of the research: "The laughter is associated with positive emotional feelings and social bonding occurs with the human tickler, resulting in the rats becoming conditioned to seek the tickling.

"Additional responses to the tickling were that those that laughed the most also played the most, and those that laughed the most preferred to spend more time with other laughing rats. This suggests a social preference to other rats exhibiting similar responses.

"Although the research was unable to prove rats have a sense of humour, it did indicate rats can laugh and express joy."

Or as Panksepp and Burgdorf put it themselves, in the abstract of their paper, "Laughing rats and the evolutionary antecedents of human joy", published in Physiology and Behaviour, Vol 79: "Play and tickle-induced ultrasonic vocalisation patterns in rats may have more than a passing resemblance to primitive human laughter."

The laughing rat, eh? The rat that likes a bit of slap and tickle, just as we do. It's a far cry from the foul denizen of the sewers, the scurrying scavenger of the rubbish tip, the bringer of plague and death. It just goes to show the mental pictures we make of things, the "narratives", to use the post-modern concept, are not necessarily rooted in reality at all.
Does this mean that Ratatouille can alter the image of the rat completely? Who knows? It would certainly be a remarkable exercise in ... in ... what's that phrase we've alll being using recently? Oh yes. Brand decontamination.
But if David Cameron can do it for the Tories, then pretty much anything's possible.

The rat pack: a cultural history

* REMY
Ratatouille's Rémy is a resident of the Parisian sewer with an unlikely vocation as a gastronome, and the star of Pixar's latest animation. Forced by species discrimination to lurk behind the salt cellars of the world's greatest kitchens, he finds his niche as a culinary counsellor to a hapless young sous-chef.

* RATTY
Ratty and his friend Mole were co-stars in Kenneth Grahame's children's classic, The Wind in the Willows. Badger was the brains, and Toad had the charisma, but this pair of inseparable chums, who liked nothing better than messing about on the river together, were the heart.

* BEN
Michael Jackson's first solo number one was "Ben", a touching ode to friendship that provided a soundtrack to the film of the same name. Fans of the song and its sentiment, may have been surprised to find Michael's friend Ben was a rat.

* SCABBERS
Ron Weasley's pet Scabbers was a cause of bickering between the ginger teen and his friends Harry and Hermione, whose cat Crookshanks took a particular dislike to it. Crookshanks was vindicated when Scabbers turned out to be not a rat, but Timothy Spall in disguise.

* SAMUEL WHISKERS
A Beatrix Potter creation, Samuel Whiskers was a winning chap with a scoundrel's air. He and his wife Anna Maria did their best to wrap poor Tom Kitten up in a roly-poly pudding in The Tale of Samuel Whiskers.

* RIZZO
In a show with a fair few egos flying about, Rizzo the Rat was a scene-stealer par excellence, mugging his way unforgettably through the final season of The Muppet Show. He went on to star in the team's movie projects, developing a memorable comedy partnership with Gonzo.

* SPLINTER
Splinter was the mutated martial arts master who mentored the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He was the pet rat of a ninja who learnt his moves by mimicking his masterr.

* NICK AND FETCHER
The cameo kings of Nick Park's first feature film, Chicken Run.

* ROLAND RAT
A breakfast TV superstar during the 1980s, he single-handedly revived the fortunes of the ailing TV-AM with his whiskered wideboy schtick. With sidekicks Errol The Hamster and Kevin the Gerbil, he even had three UK chart hits, including "Rat Rapping".

* SOUL CONTROLLER
This is wu-corps resident rat, who scurries about thread defecating in small but innumnerable bursts. The spaniard butt-buddies drunken monk and doomsgay keep him as a pet and sometimes let him out to run around in his ball and have some 'rat' time.


What to Do About Wild Mice

The house mouse lives in homes and requires serious attention to prevention so that they do not become problems
Adapted from the book Wild Neighbors

Kelly Tipton/Sibley Nature Center


House mice came to American along with the first European settlers. They prefer to spend their lives inside buildings including homes, barns, warehouses, and offices. Wild mice such as the native white footed mice and deer mice would rather spend just the colder months indoors.
If all mice did was eat some of our food, we could probably live with them. But because they can be carriers for diseases, we are better off using humane techniques to prevent them from moving in with us.

Common problems and solutions

In large numbers, mice can and will eat lots of stored seed and grains. But the amount of food they eat will be much less than the amount contaminated with urine and feces.
Mice can also cause property damages by chewing wood, paper, cloth, books, and insulation on wiring—you’ll see tooth marks about 1/8 inch wide on the chewed materials.
Detecting Mice

Here are some tell-tale signs:


Small holes chewed through bread, cookie, or pet food bags.
Nests loosely made of paper, cloth, twine or other material in little-used drawers or cabinets.
Droppings that resemble small black grains of rice.
Cats and dogs showing particular interest in bare walls, closets, or appliances.
A cache of pet food found in a duffle bag stored in the closet.

Tolerance

Sometimes people live with mice for years and don’t even know it. Other times, they’ll know the mice are there and don’t mind them. And there are those times when the discovery of a mouse requires immediate attention.
Native white-footed and deer mice, who move indoors during the early fall or winter, usually can be humanely live-trapped and returned to the outdoors. House mice would probably not do well if turned out, but many people are willing to try relocating them rather than killing them with traps. If you can move the housse mouse or mice to a protected outbuilding such as a shed or garage, you’ll be giving them a better chance of survival.
How to keep mice out

Mice can enter buildings through openings no larger than the size of a dime. Keeping them out of buildings can be a difficult, long-term process. But it is the only effective way to permanently deal with mouse problems.
Carefully look for possible entry points:


Around foundations.
Where utility pipes and wires pass into the house.
Where siding has deteriorated and holes occur.
Cracks in foundations.

Sprinkle baby powder or flour lightly along the inside perimeters of walls and thresholds to see if there are any tracks. This will tell you where mice are active and what openings must be closed.
Now, close the openings:


Plug cracks around drainpipes and small openings with wire mesh or quick-drying cement.
The best way to seal openings that don’t involve electrical wiring is a copper mesh pan scrubber.
Ball up galvanized window screen and stuff it into larger openings, then finish with caulking or cement.
Fill small openings with expanding-foam insulation.

Note: Don’t use caulk or other rubber or plastic fillers because mice can easily chew through them.
Habitat modification

Indoors
Keep your house free of obvious and not-so-obvious places to find food:


Breadcrumbs under the toaster.
Spilled food that is left on the counter or table overnight.
Spilled birdseed in the garage or shed.
Dry pet food left in the garage overnight or next to an appliance, behind which mice can move unnoticed.
Pet food left out in the pet’s dish overnight.
Any food that isn’t stored in a metal or glass container.

Throw away food at the first sign that mice have gotten into it.
Outdoors
Keep flowers, shrubs, and hedges trimmed at least 18 inches out from the foundation of the house or building to be protected. This will also make it easier to find entry points.
Live Trapping

There’s a large variety of live traps at hardware stores or on the web.
Keep in mind a mouse who comes from generations of mice who have been born and only lived indoors isn’t likely to do well outdoors. There is every reason to believe that the chances that a live-trapped indoor mouse will survive outdoors are very low.
Lethal Control

People probably kill more rodents each year than any other wild animal. Most likely the killing isn’t followed by the habitat modification, sanitation, and exclusion necessary to provide a long-term solution.
The simple rule is: lethal control can never be justified without a diligent effort to apply other controls to prevent the recurrence of problems.
Unacceptable methods
Poisons and glue boards (http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/facts/glue_boards.html) are cruel. They are less humane than snap traps, or the traps that use electricity to kill rodents. The bottom line: There are no truly humane ways to kill mice, only some that are less inhumane.
Public health concerns

Mice can carry a number of diseases (http://www.cdc.gov/rodents/diseases/direct_rodents.htm) that humans can catch:


Hantavirus (http://cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/hanta/hps/) may be carried by both wild and house mice.
Salmonellosis (http://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/diseases/salmonellosis.htm), an infection with the bacteria Solmonella, can be spread by mice. It’s an important concern where food is prepared and stored.
The bubonic plague (http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/plague/) may be passed on by mice through their fleas.
Lyme (http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/resources/facts/lyme_disease.html) disease is transmitted by ticks, which may be carried by white-footed mice.

Respiratory Disease in Rats and Mice

© Ann Storey MSc. FIBMS, 1998


Infectious respiratory disease of rats and mice is the bane of their owners, be they scientist, fancier or pet keeper. It is the most common form of ill health in these animals and has many names. Traditionally fanciers have called it snuffles or asthma.

There are several infections that can cause it, both bacterial and viral but the commonest cause in adult rats and mice is Mycoplasma pulmonis.

There has been a mountain of research done on Mycoplasma infections in rats and mice because it is an economically important disease. Whatever you may think about the use of these animals in research, the fact remains that it is a multimillion pound industry and the modern quality assurance schemes have made research into anything that might interfere with results necessary. As far as possible I have sifted through the relevant research to present this overview on the current state of play. For those who are not interested in the science I suggest you skip to the conclusions. The understanding of this infection contains much immunology. I have included as little as possible so as not to confuse anyone. For those who can handle it I suggest you refer to the references for more detailed information.

Both rats and mice have probably evolved alongside their Mycoplasma and it is probable that, with the exception of barrier raised stock, all the rats and mice in the world are infected. The scientific community call the condition Murine Respiratory Mycoplasmosis or MRM and the symptoms have been recognised in laboratory rats since the turn of the Century. It was one of the major reasons for the development of Caesarian raised barrier stock, although this has not always been successful. Even with the most modern techniques, laboratory stock can sometimes still become infected.

The bacteria itself has no cell wall and is very sensitive to drying, heat, disinfectants etc. and cannot survive for long outside the body. It is passed, one rat to another by aerosols exhaled from other rat or mouse lungs. An aerosol is a small droplet of liquid. Some aerosols are small enough to be inhaled directly into the lungs while other larger ones will remain in the upper respiratory tract. Aerosols are formed whenever liquid surfaces are broken and they are also exhaled from the respiratory tract.

With M. pulmonis only rats and mice carry it and they are the only species affected. They cannot catch it from rabbits, humans or other rodents. However, rats and mice can transmit it to each other. Other species have their own species of Mycoplasma but each one behaves a bit differently. Rats and mice become infected with respiratory Mycoplasma either at birth if the doe has vaginal infection or by inhaling infected aerosols later. After inhalation the organism will attempt to colonise the respiratory skin by attaching itself to the cell membrane. If it does not succeed then it will not be able to colonise. The lower the number of infecting organisms the longer it takes for the host to develop symptoms. (Razin and Barile 1985)

The organisms that do succeed in growing produce hydrogen peroxide which causes local tissue damage and a mitogen which stimulates lymphoid tissue in the lungs into growth. A mitogen is a chemical substance that stimulates cells into multiplying (that is undergoing mitosis). In this case the mitogen works on immune tissue in the lungs (called BALT or bronchus associated lymphoid tissue) that is responsible for producing lymphocytes- both the white cells responsible for producing antibodies (B lymphocytes) and T lymphocytes which have a range of functions, including cell mediated immunity and control of B lymphocytes. In addition the organism causes a chronic inflammatory response in the lungs (Razin and Barile 1985).

It does not cause symptoms in animals under three months old, if younger animals get a respiratory infection then it is not Mycoplasma but is more likely to be a virus such as Sendai or SDAV. Mycoplasma disease does not show symptoms until the infection has been well established for some time and considerable tissue changes have occurred. Therefore the idea that treating the rat as soon as the symptoms occur is somehow 'getting in early' is entirely false.

It is important to differentiate whether or not a rat has an upper or lower respiratory tract infection. In rats the disease tends to be chronic and even without treatment often the only symptom is rattling or noisy breathing or sneezing. Pneumonia is rare and most affected rats have upper respiratory tract disease only. Upper respiratory tract disease includes rhinitis (cold symptoms), sinusitis, labyrinthitis (middle ear disease). Lower respiratory disease includes conditions ranging from mild bronchitis to pneumonia and sometimes emphysema. A rat with noisy or snuffling breathing is unlikely to have lower respiratory tract disease if it is otherwise healthy, eating and in good condition. It is far more likely to have sinusitis. Although the infection does not usually kill rats by itself they are rarely successful in getting rid of it from their system. The reason for this is not known. In mice ,the disease tends to cause more severe disease including acute alveolar pneumonia, although if they survive this they will develop a chronic bronchopneumonia . The ones I have seen always look ill with laboured breathing and a rough, staring coat. Even if they are not culled they usually die anyway. Treatment in mice is even less successful than it is in rats due to the massive amount of lung damage that occurs. The reason that rats do not usually become as ill as mice is that in rats the bugs are rapidly cleared from the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs by a type of white cell called a alveolar macrophage but in mice this does not happen, which is why they end up with severe pneumonia. In both rats and mice the condition is made worse by high levels of ammonia and a concurrent infection with Sendai virus or SDAV. It does not appear to matter in which order the infections are contracted. The reasons are not clear, although it had been thought that this was due to either infection preventing the hairs in the lungs (cilia) from beating and thus removing the particles from the lungs or interfering with the killing mechanism. This is now considered not to be very likely however, as rats with Sendai seem to be able to clear Mycoplasma from their lungs just as fast as those without (Nicholls et al 1992, Shanks and Percy 1995).

Most fanciers have been aware for a long time that some strains of rats and mice are more susceptible than others and the conventional wisdom is never to breed with stock that is showing symptoms. Any snuffling animals on the show bench are quickly disqualified and because of this selection it appears that in fanciers' rats at least; while they sometimes get mild sneezes or snuffles, rarely become ill with it. However pet shop rats, which are often intensively bred with little quality control due to the very poor money offered to the breeders are far more likely to become seriously ill. This is well known in laboratories as well, with some strains being extensively used by researchers because of their susceptibility. However, even among inbred strains the symptoms are very variable between individuals as are the amount of tissue changes. It has been shown that the animals which develop lower respiratory tract symptoms are those with the most pronounced growth of tissue. In resistant rats increases in lymphoid tissue reached maximum growth after 28 days, however in sensitive rats the tissue was still increasing in size after 120 days. Sensitive strains of mice and rats can even develop the disease when treated with extracts of the organism, without any live cells being present (Razin and Barile 1985). That this response is down to genetic control has been considered likely for many decades. In mice there has been some discussion about what gene is responsible but there is a reasonable amount of evidence that a single dominant gene is responsible. The same work does not seem to have been done in rats but it would seem logical that the disease in rats is also under genetic control (Cole 1983, Lai et al 1993).

Some strains of Mycoplasma are also more virulent than others. Virulence seems to be linked to their ability to stick on to the cell membranes in the lung, their ability to resist being eaten by the macrophages and the amount of damage they can do to the cilia (Howard and Taylor 1979).

In protection against Mycoplasma it is not clear how important production of antibodies is. While antibodies are produced against the Mycoplasma they do not appear to control the infection in the respiratory tract. However, they do appear effective in stopping the spread of the organism to other organs. In immunocompromised animals, widespread infection can occur but not in normal animals ( Denny and Taylor-Robinson 1972) . It has been shown in mice that mice with respiratory infection do not develop infections of the reproductive tract unless they are unable to produce T lymphocytes (Taylor-Robinson and Furr 1994). I have noticed in rats that those which develop uterine infections (due possibly to Mycoplasma) have not had snuffles and vice versa. The control of the infection in the lungs appears to be down to activation of the macrophages. If these are not activated then the disease is not controlled.

There has been some success with vaccines in laboratories, both ones made of formalin killed M. pulmonis and more modern recombinant ones. However, these were produced for research purposes only and there is no chance that they will ever be commercially available (Lai et al 1994).

The traditional antibiotic used to treat Mycoplasma with varying degrees of success is oxytetracycline, although chloramphenicol is better for labyrinthitis. These have been largely superseded by Baytril (enrofloxacin). A number of common antibiotics such as the penicillins, cephalosporins and newer Imipenems are of no use against this bug because unlike other bacteria the Mycoplasmas do not have a cell wall and this is what these antibiotics work on. However, no antibiotic can achieve a lasting cure and in many cases no improvement is seen. The reason for this seems to be that no antibiotic can be expected to kill or inhibit all the organisms, they rely on the host being able to mop up the remainder. In M. pulmonis infections this does not appear to happen, the reasons for this are not known as, unlike some other organisms which cause chronic disease this organism remains outside the cells. (It is likely however that the reason is that the macrophages which are the primary infection control cell in the lungs have not been activated and do not recognise the Mycoplasma as being a target). Also, the overgrowth of lymphoid tissue in the lungs contributes to the symptoms. Long term use of antibiotics, even where two or more are used, can still lead to resistance. This is not only in the Mycoplasma but also in other bacteria. Where treatment is not having much effect it should be discontinued to stop the spread of resistant organisms in the environment.

Conclusions

There is no magic bullet for respiratory Mycoplasma in rats and mice, where animals develop symptoms it is best to consider that they have got it for life. In susceptible animals, especially mice , this means that they may develop pneumonia and probably die. In rats, most develop snuffles only and this does not appear to affect their quality of life, irrespective of whether or not they receive any antibiotics. Where chest infection occurs and the rat is a pet, long term treatment with antibiotics can be attempted, although resistance can be a problem. For the breeder, rats with symptoms are not an infection hazard to the rest of the stock - they have almost certainly got it anyway. However, you should never breed with a snuffling rat as, chances are you may breed this tendency in. All owners should be more careful to clean out regularly, rats produce lots of urine which soon turns to ammonia in dirty rat cages and high ammonia levels will make this condition worse. Using newspaper or tissues as a sole source of bedding is also to be discouraged.

40 Tons Of Debris From The Japan Tsunami Smacks An Alaskan Island

The tsunami that ravaged Japan in March 2011 left behind 25 million tons of floating debris (http://www.businessinsider.com/map-of-the-day-track-the-giant-mass-of-tsunami-debris-headed-for-the-us-2012-2), a portion of which washed up on Montague Island in Alaska's Prince William Sound.

On Friday, workers began a two-week project to cleanup around 40 tons of waste, including plastic bottles, Styrofoam and buoys.



According to MSNBC (http://www.businessinsider.com/blackboard/msnbc), Alaska Senator Mark Begich (http://www.businessinsider.com/blackboard/mark-begich) has asked for $45 million to help with the cleanup operation (http://usnews.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/05/25/11872317-crews-prepare-to-remove-40-tons-of-japan-tsunami-debris-from-alaska-island?lite) on Montague, an uninhabited island about 120 miles southeast of Anchorage.
