…burkas are making women sick throughout the [A]rab world. 99 percent of women in a recent study showed a deficiency of vitamin D.
“What I found out when I was there was that they were very glad to talk about it, because it is true that breast cancer presents about 10 years younger in Arab women than it does here in the United States.” …
“I met woman who was covered, totally covered — just her eyes were exposed….”

MANSON, Wash. – A Michigan couple is lucky to be alive after their minivan was hit by a falling cow on Sunday.
According to a report in the Wenatchee World newspaper, Charles Everson, Jr. and his wife Linda were driving on Highway 150 about one mile east of Manson in Chelan County when a cow fell about 200 feet off a cliff and landed on the hood of their minivan.
“It was ‘bam’- you just saw something come down and hit the hood,” Everson told the newspaper from a hotel room in Manson.
Everson, 49, and his wife were visiting the area from Westland, Michigan, near Detroit, and were headed back to their hotel after attending a church service.
The newspaper cites Everson saying he didn’t see the animal until it hit and didn’t realize what happened until after the impact.
“I’m like, ‘I don’t believe this, I don’t believe this, I don’t believe this,'” Everson told the newspaper.
“It’s funny because it was such a close call,” Arnold Baker, Chelan County Fire District 5 Chief told the World. “Inches different and the couple in this car would have been killed.”
Charles and Linda Everson of Westland were driving in the scenic foothills of Washington state when they slowed for a fallen rock.
The boulder, however, was nothing compared to what would drop next.
Namely, a 600-pound baby cow.

“Politicians often manage to fool voters and the media, but they rarely fool the financial markets over time. …”
“This decline in the value of the dollar is simple to explain. The dollar loses value as the direct result of the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury increasing the money supply. Inflation, as the late Milton Friedman explained, is always a monetary phenomenon. The federal government consistently wants to spend more than it can tax and borrow, so Congress turns to the Fed for help in covering the difference. The result is more dollars, both real and electronic – which means the value of every existing dollar goes down.”

When the U.S. Navy deploys a battle fleet on exercises, it takes the security of its aircraft carriers very seriously indeed.
At least a dozen warships provide a physical guard while the technical wizardry of the world’s only military superpower offers an invisible shield to detect and deter any intruders.
That is the theory. Or, rather, was the theory.
