Thank you. I'm now glowing and hovering over your northern border like a glittering shiny little rainbow coloured unicorn. ( Btw, that "u" in coloured" disappears when I slip out of my lane and trespass into US territory ...to which I always say "sorry" ... cause I'm nice. )

But then again, what would we do without you? lol

The SCOTUS just sided with a lower court ruling in a case by conservative states against Planned Parenthood!!

Kavanough and Roberts voted along with the liberal minority. Knock me over with a feather!

I can’t copy the article on this iPad, so if someone else can find it and post it I would be grateful.

Boy oh boy, Nancy and Chuck kicked Trump ass. That was fun to watch. MSNBC were saying he's not faced this since he was elected.

When he said he had the House, she's like try it. Go ahead. LOLOL.

Default Piercing sound used to clear homeless from downtown Portland street corner ....

PORTLAND, Ore. — A piercing sound that was coming from a 7-Eleven corner of Southwest 4th and Southwest Taylor Street in downtown Portland violates a city code, according to a city official. Portland noise control officer confirmed a report that he went to the 7-Eleven on Wednesday after the city received multiple complaints. He said the tone screaming from the front of the convenience store registered at more than twice the legal limit. The sound has since been turned off.

The high-pitched sound appeared to be coming from a box mounted above the 7-Eleven sign. It's unclear how long the sound had been playing, but the idea was to clear out the homeless that congregate at the store entrance.One man who camps downtown said he couldn't stand the noise.
“Multiple nights, it played continuously, the entire night. It was on still during the day. Like it didn't stop,” said Jeff McKenzie. “It's horrible because I've got sensitive hearing.”

Default Local Boy Scouts Chapter now allowing girls into scouting program

PORTLAND, Ore. — The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) made a historic change Friday by officially welcoming girls into the organization.While the parent organization's name won't change, the scouting program for 11- to 17-year-olds will no longer be known as the Boy Scouts. Instead, boys and girls will now be able to join Scouts BSA.

The Cascade Pacific Council chapter of BSA held a kickoff celebration Friday night. "I grew up in the scouting program, and I always wanted to be a bigger part of it," said Claire Osterman, director of Family Scouting for the Cascade Pacific Council. "Today, I get to see these girls do the things that so many of us have wanted to do." Girls were admitted into the Cub Scouts last year.

The Girl Scouts of the United States of America filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against BSA in November. The organization argued that only it has "the right to use the Girls Scouts and Scouts trademark with leadership development services for girls."

GSA is wrong for this. Even if they have a case, they should not press it. There is nothing they could lose, infringement-wise, to BSA that won't be further imperiled by appearing to erect barriers to opportunities for the very constituency they serve.

I agree, but unfortunately trademark law doesn't work that way. If you have a trademark and you don't protect it against _every_ violation, you lose your rights to protect it from anybody at all; i.e., if Girl Scouts doesn't bring legal action against the Boy Scouts, any group anywhere could start calling themselves Girl Scouts and selling cookies, and there would be nothing the Girl Scouts could do about it.

That said, I expect they will work out something legally protecting both parties.

Also, I have a (girl) friend who always wanted to be a Boy Scout. All her brothers were Scouts, and her dad was a Scout Master. She didn't want to join Girl Scouts at all. (I assured her that her impression of Girl Scouts was quite wrong - we did not just sit around knitting and baking cookies. Grrr - irritating misconception.) She didn't care - she had just wanted to do what her brothers did.

I expect it will eventually be a good thing, overall. At least, I hope so.

Cool Bitcoin

Trust noone here has $$ in Quadriga, a Canadian cryptocurrency exchange, as the CEO, Gerald Cotten, has died at age 30 of complications due to Crohn's disease. He had the only password that has locked out @ $145 million in assets.

Cool BPA

BPA found in cash register and ATM receipts

This chemical is found in all cash registers receipts as well as ATM receipts across the world. Apparently, people working in retail are most at risk. BPA from thermal paper receipts passes through the skin. I saw this on Canadian news on CTV Vancouver News, where they showed an in-house group of people touchimg these receipts, and later on in the day they checked their urine, and apparently most had 42% more BPA than normal. The problem is that this chemical may be linked to hormonal imbalance, obesity, and cancer. Toronto (Ontario) is thinking of banning such usage.
It's already banned in most countries for baby bottles. "In 2008, Canada became the first nation to take action by banning the import and sale of polycarbonate baby bottles containing BPA."

https://www.cbc.ca/news/bpa-found-in...eipts-1.907162

So, handle all cash receipts with great care, and then throw away asap!!! (And, then, of course, all this dangerous junk lands in landfills and kills everything... I think the end is coming (smh)....)

My mom used to say that money is dirty (germs). Of course, we all know that it is the "love" of money which is "dirty"... but now, we can add to that "cash receipts"!!! It's not the germs that will kill you, it is BPA ...

By the way, there are only 5 companies that make BPA in the United States: "Bayer, Dow, Hexion Specialty Chemicals, SABIC Innovative Plastics (formerly GE Plastics), and Sunoco. Together, they bring in more than $6 billion a year from the compound."
