Posted June 14th, 2012 by snowdog2012

(CBS News) While the New York City Board of Health approves of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's plan to cut all large sugary drinks from New Yorker's diets, some members are taking issue with one major point: They don't think the plan goes far enough. -- Andrew Moesel, spokesman for the New York Restaurant Association, attended the meeting and told the New York Daily News he didn't approve of the changes, and his group is considering legal action.

"We don't know if next it'll be 16 fries on a plate or only one hot dog a day," Mosel said to the New York Daily News.

The illegal trade in kidneys has risen to such a level that an estimated 10,000 black market operations involving purchased human organs now take place annually, or more than one an hour, World Health Organisation experts have revealed.

Posted May 23rd, 2012 by MuslimNonarchist

There is an axiom libertarians use to talk about government spending; that which is economically unsustainable cannot endure. This applies to liberty projects too. I’m concerned that if our liberty projects are sustained by irrational exuberance, and not by actual economic incentives, these projects, maybe the movement itself, is unsustainable without the zeal of converts, because eventually the enthusiasm bubble pops. So, I contacted the activists behind some of the liberty projects that I support to hear their thoughts on the subject.

Man Modifies 1992 Honda Civic to get 95 miles/gallon

Posted May 15th, 2012 by snowdog2012

I started this project after the Katrina-insired gas price runup since I have a long commute. I first learned to drive during the 1970's oil embargo and have been perfecting my hypermiling tenchniques ever since. My car is a 92 Civic CX, which I bought new, and was giving me low 60's to low 50's before I started aero modding it. The end result is a car with 95mpg at 30 to 65mph.

Posted May 14th, 2012 by ecigarettes

An 18-year-old Panamanian fisherman who survived 28 days adrift at sea is suing Princess Cruise Lines, arguing that the cruise ship whose crew members saw him stranded should have stopped and saved him. The behavior of crew members of the Star Princess was outrageous, shocking, atrocious and utterly intolerable in a civilized community. Even though crew members "had clear knowledge that people were stranded in an open boat hundreds of miles from shore in the Pacific Ocean and desperately calling for help," the lawsuit says, "they consciously ignored the emergency situation," R.

Thousands of pills filled with powdered human flesh have been discovered by customs officials in South Korea, it was revealed today.

The capsules are in demand because they are viewed as being a medicinal 'cure-all'.
