Smarter every day: Slo-mo flipping cats -- Why do cats land on their feet?

Precious, the semi-feral kitty spent the summer down the street in a wooded area

getting fed by some other neighbors.

As soon as the weather started getting cooler, Precious started coming back here. I guess we have some premium eats for cooler weather. As you can see, she looks great. All the flea bitten bits of fur have grown back and her coat is coming in slightly red again -- I guess it is her winter coat. She just needs a good bushing. She is still stand offish, but my DH was able to pet her the other day. I still have hopes for this kitty.

Palm trees wave, are you listenin'?

Former KKK leader David Duke has been expelled from Italy (Reuters)
David Duke, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, was expelled from Italy after authorities deemed him as "socially dangerous" for he allegedly planned to set up a pan-European neo-Nazi group.

A Venice court has upheld a decision to deny a permit of residence renewal to the former Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representative and holocaust denier, who was found living under false pretences near the northern town of Belluno.

"Official reliable sources have revealed plans to establish an organisation aiming to exterminate the black and Jewish races in Europe," the sentence read.

"He was also previously arrested and expelled from the Czech Republic as suspected of promoting the launch of a movement for the suppression of human rights and fundamental freedoms."

Duke was initially banned from Switzerland over his activities related to the white supremacist movement in 2009.

Swiss authorities also designated him as persona non grata in all the European states part of the Schengen treaty, including Italy.

You can't make this stuff up: Wal-Mart Monetizes the Occupy Movement

Wal-Mart Monetizes the Occupy Movement

This holiday season, buy the perfect gift for that loved one who took a stand against America’s plutocracy: a large print of the Occupy encampment at Zuccotti Park. The poster is “printed on Premium Heavy Stock Paper which captures all of the vivid colors and details of the original,” the print-maker writes. “Ready for hanging or framing,” it “would make a great addition to your home or office.”

It’s available online through Wal-Mart’s “Marketplace,” a section of the big box chain’s website that allows third parties to post items for sale.

The irony — a poster celebrating a movement that decried capitalism’s excesses sold by the retailer that the same movement pointed to as most illustrative of capitalism’s excesses — is lost on no one. ...

“Quite possibly the only thing funnier than being able to purchase a Ché Guevara tee shirt at a big box chain store would be the ability to buy a panoramic poster featuring Occupy Wall Street’s encampment in Lower Manhattan from that chain,” writes Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell.
