Feral hogs in Texas attacked and killed a woman outside a home

A Texas woman was found dead after pre-dawn attack by a group of feral hogs outside a home, the Chambers County sheriff said.

Christine Rollins, a 59-year old caregiver to an elderly couple in Anahuac, failed to show up at her normal time on Sunday, the sheriff’s office said. The 84-year-old homeowner found her lying in the front yard between her car and the house.
Sheriff Brian Hawthorne said in a news conference Monday that “multiple hogs” assaulted Rollins when she arrived at work, likely between 6 and 6:30 a.m., when it was still dark outside.
“In my 35 years, I will tell you it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen,” Hawthorne told reporters.

Youtube seems to be really upping the commercials, at least on videos the channel owner have designated that they want monetized.

Some of the vids I’m watching the past couple of days, on youtube channels I’ve viewed before, are giving me a couple of advertisements every 5 minutes or so. The adverts are the short ones (5 or 10 seconds), but damn, they interrupt the program so much it is now onerous.

And of course the channels that choose to not monetize will be shuffled off the search results by the Youtube search engine.

This is getting to be more and more like a science fiction “nature’s revenge” monster movie every day. Game wardens and state troopers hunt them with machine guns and from helicopters, the state has authorized the use of poison and lethal traps, and they are considering explosives. There are a million licensed hunters in Texas who can go after them with no limit and no season. Yet the hogs still multiply and expand their range every day. They are the toughest and smartest game animals in the world, and increasingly dangerous. I’ve noticed that they seem to be losing their fear of humans and are harder and harder to simply frighten away.

re: #19 FormerDirtDart 🍕🐀

That looks like Shin Godzilla’s first form (not shown in the 2016 movie).

On a completely different subject, the large religious university in eastern Idaho that told students Medicaid did not count for insurance, but boy howdy, their really bad insurance offered by the university itself (which doesn’t meet ACA standards) does, reverses course and “apologizes for community turmoil.” It took the New York Times writing a piece headlined “University to Students on Medicaid: Buy Private Coverage, or Drop Out” to get BYU Idaho’s attention.

REXBURG — Brigham Young University-Idaho has reversed its decision to reject Medicaid as a waiver to its Student Health Plan.

The university issued a statement and an apology for the turmoil the decision caused in a campus-wide email Monday night. University spokesman Brett Crandall confirmed the email, but declined to comment further.

“We have decided that Medicaid, as it has in previous years, will meet the health coverage requirement at BYU-Idaho,” the email says.

The email goes on to say that because of its limited capacity and scope of services, the Student Health Center will continue not serving as a Medicaid service provider.

“The well-being of our students and their families is very important to us,” the notice said. “We are grateful for the feedback we have received from our campus community and for the input of the local medical community. We apologize for the turmoil caused by our earlier decision.”

eastidahonews.com

This was a particular slam because Idaho is expanding Medicaid and many poor young families which go to BYU Idaho will likely qualify for the expansion. It’s still unclear why BYU Idaho was being such shitheels about it, unless they really expected people to sign up for their truly shitty health insurance.

Because a healthy sow can have a huge farrow, the population will grow rapidly. And our modern treatment of the landscape gives the swine plenty of food. And we no longer have natural predators, which in the case of swine (back in Eurasia) would be large felids or pack of wolves.

This is methed up:

A brother and sister were chased, tackled and arrested by police after a sibling squabble over who got to ride shotgun took a violent turn. Bret and Brianna Brezenski are facing charges of simple assault and resisting arrest after the bizarre incident over the weekend in Olyphant, Pennsylvania.

Police said the fight began when Bret, 27, was picking up his 20-year-old sister Brianna from work, and the younger Brezenski got angry that her brother’s girlfriend was in the passenger seat.

It’s true.
But it’s also fatalistic.
Many of the peeps I follow on Twitter are African-American and they say this often, with good reason. But I’ve seen some of them putting down white fragility and saying “I’m alright, Jack!” in so many words.

I just think of those blacks and other minorities who are disabled or disadvantaged or forced to deal with the court system, and then smug is not a good thing to be.

I remember getting Rubella and Measles with a spacing of two or three weeks or so as a kid (8-9 yrs). And I had it easy, was just sunk for two weeks a pop. Which figures with the recent science news that both give your immune system a kick in the cojones.

On a related note, if you have the possibility to take this years flu jab, please do. I has sampled this years flu, and found out the following equation:

psoriaticArthritis + flu = OW

This one goes for your muscles and joints pretty well, and is a sneaky bastard. First you get the nose drip and and a day later the throat ache, then you feel better, only to find out it followed you to the dark alley and knocked you over after yet another day. And I am still recovering from that virus (a little weak and tired, but mostly fine).

In the mid 60’s some ineffective vaccines for measles got through. My sister’s hearing was messed up. Not deaf by any means but noticeably worse for it. I was left sterile by measles. OTOH, that lead to us adopting so I’ll count myself lucky that was all.

I can go to the cemetery in town and see the before and after of vaccines. Fuck anti-vaxxers with a rusty pitchfork.

I know, right? Like, the floor in my apartment has ever so slight give, so if the Ibuprofen happened to have worn off entirely and mom walked across the floor… Every damn step of hers felt something akin to someone pressing on a bruise, only in every muscle and joint.

And I experienced the joys of pneumonia as a complication of a flu a little over three years ago. And then a left-sided pleural empyema (fluid in the bag which contains the lung, I had 500 ml-ish) as a complication of the pneumonia, which sent me to the hospital for 12 days. Endured 2 chest drains and 5 or 6 PVC’s and a grand total of 51 days of penicillin either IV or orally (Mental note: IV Penicillin G, a.k.a. Benzylpenicillin, is not a vein irritant if given by syringe, it is an outright vein bully).

Oh, and I was on an immunosuppressant at the time, so yeah, I don’t think I need to relate what I feel about antivaxxers…

my favorite ‘strategy’ is in the last para re: straight ticket voting

…the plan details an effort to convince Republican voters to vote for GOP candidates all the way down the ballot manually through a tagline. Some of the potential taglines include: “Vote Right All the Way Down!” “Vote Right To The Bottom!” and “Vote RIGHT Down the Ballot!”

Fox News is blowing their wad this morning because they’ve managed to find a single House Democrat who is not gung ho about Impeachment and is hoping she can convince all her Demcoratic buddies to abandon the whole thing.

The congressperson in question is Michigan rep Brenda Lawrence.

Apparently Fox fails to realize that Trump can still be Impeached even if not every single Democrat in the house is on board for it.

Have they found some blacks and Latinos who support Trump as well?

suffrage a centennial coin was commissioned C) acting like a centennial coin was some great accomplishment of his. I’ve often said that Trump has to be the highest extreme.

The challenge the next Democrat faces is prioritizing cleaning up Trump’s messes. He/she won’t be able to clean all them up and I guess what upsets me is time and time again a Democratic President has a difficult time pursuing an agenda since it’s cleaning up old messes. Carter had to restore faith in the Oval Office after Watergate, Clinton had to clean up the stupidity that was Reaganomics, & Obama had to fix the country’s image after Bush abroad. Republicans often make messes and Democrats get stuck cleaning them up and then the electorate is either too impatient or gets amnesia about the causes of these messes.

I remember getting Rubella and Measles with a spacing of two or three weeks or so as a kid (8-9 yrs). And I had it easy, was just sunk for two weeks a pop. Which figures with the recent science news that both give your immune system a kick in the cojones.

On a related note, if you have the possibility to take this years flu jab, please do. I has sampled this years flu, and found out the following equation:

psoriaticArthritis + flu = OW

This one goes for your muscles and joints pretty well, and is a sneaky bastard. First you get the nose drip and and a day later the throat ache, then you feel better, only to find out it followed you to the dark alley and knocked you over after yet another day. And I am still recovering from that virus (a little weak and tired, but mostly fine).

I had my annual flu shot yesterday! My arm was itchy and now it’s kinda tender around the injection but flu sucks harder so this vaccine will kick its ass.

GOP leaders in the Kentucky legislature are pushing a bill that would effectively remove Democratic Gov.-elect Andy Beshear’s control over the state’s Department of Transportation, the latest move in an accelerating trend of Republicans stripping power from Democratic governors before they can take office.

The legislation would limit the governor to nominating a transportation secretary from a list chosen by a new a board whose nine members would be selected by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and local government associations, with those members subject to a veto by the Republican-run legislature. Lawmakers would also have veto power over Beshear’s nominee, making this the only cabinet position in the state requiring Senate confirmation.

Is she susceptible to calls from her constituents? My rep supported impeachment before Ukraine and we thought it was late in the game.

——-

As more impeachment polls come in, they’re undermining the Republican talking point that the numbers are moving against Democrats: 49% support impeaching and removing President Trump while 44% do not.

and

A new CNN poll finds 53% of Americans think that President Trump had used his office improperly, up from 49% in October, and 56% said Trump’s attempts to persuade Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter was more for personal benefit than to root out corruption.

Pet and Wildlife Rescue said an animal control officer picked up the family of six after a “good citizen” spotted them in mid-November and called the shelter in Chatham, Ontario.

i’ve been thinking about this for a little while and i think it’s time to start being more accurate regarding the senate ‘acquitting’, etc.

i’m using your comment as a springboard, but not pointing at you.

A senate ‘verdict’ is not ‘guilty / not guilty’ or worse any sense of ‘innocent / exoneration’.

the senate will vote to:
- remove from office or not
- and/ or disqualify from holding another future office
there is nothing more and nothing less.

there is no ‘acquittal’.

if the house votes by majority, the president is impeached. period. full stop.
for all time.
it doesnt go away. ever.

he will always be a member of a small and ignominious bunch.

further, by my math, if the house votes before 1/30/20, trump gets the record for fastest presidential impeachment from inauguration (ousting johnson)

The “Continuation War” (1941-45) is a touchy issue; on the one hand, you were simply fighting to regain lost territory, on the other hand, you were allied with Nazi Germany…

They were using the Germans for war material to prosecute a war against the people who invaded them and stole their territory. Not really the same thing as what you saw with Italy and Japan who waged imperialist wars of aggression together with Germany and who both carried out horrifying crimes against humanity.

When it comes down to it, we had an alliance with convenience with Stalinist Russia, and Stalin was every bit as deranged and evil as Hitler. I don’t feel I have any room to judge the Finns, considering the company we were keeping

re: #137 HappyWarrior

They always do this now. See North Carolina. Lose a close election, restrict power to the Democratic successor. They’ll try to the same thing nationally after Trump.

Not sure that’s going to work on a “national” level - no matter what level of “blue wave” sweeps DC after the 2020 election, the last session of the 116th Congress that will be meeting will still have a Democratic-controlled House (with Nancy Pelosi still Speaker), and barring (God forbid) a “red wave” election, the same in the first session of the 117th (from 1/3/21). So the GOP’s capacity for fucking things up past-election is likely to be limited.
Though I’m sure Trump will do his best to leave as much of a mess behind as he can (mass pardons are likely to be the least of it).

Tim Miller: “According to a report by MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, Bolton said that he believes there is a ‘personal or business relationship dictating Trump’s position on Turkey.’”

“Wait what? The president’s former national security advisor suggested that the commander-in-chief made life or death national security decisions because of an active conflict of interest related to his business?”

“Even by the standards of Trumpian corruption, this is holy-motherforking-shirtballs level stuff.”*

Bolton’s accusation, if accurate, would amount to the biggest scandal in the American presidency in half a century: The most senior security staffer, a man with unparalleled access to the president, believes that Trump acted in a way that is indistinguishable from double-dealing despots the world over.”

Because a healthy sow can have a huge farrow, the population will grow rapidly. And our modern treatment of the landscape gives the swine plenty of food. And we no longer have natural predators, which in the case of swine (back in Eurasia) would be large felids or pack of wolves.

Even a pack of wolves would have a problem with full-grown feral hogs. They are little tanks. Innards protected, low to the ground, nimble and intelligent.

Dershowitz is fucking insane.

Alan Dershowitz appears to have jumped on the “chosen one” bandwagon.

During a Monday night interview on Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s show, Dershowitz weighed in on a federal judge’s ruling that President Trump cannot block former White House Counsel Don McGahn from complying with a congressional subpoena.

After sarcastically saying that “the big winner is Uber, because McGahn will have to get into his car, he’s gonna have to go over to the Capitol, raise his hand, take an oath, and then he can invoke privilege,” Dershowitz argued that the ruling “has no substantive impact.”

Dershowitz then railed against U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson of Washington whose decision is a boost for Democrats as they move forward with their impeachment inquiry into Trump.

“The judge went out of her way to say I’m not ruling on the issues of privilege, all I’m saying is he has to show up,” Dershowitz said, before arguing that “she went nuts talking about how the President’s not a king.”

“Of course the President’s not the king. The President’s far more powerful than the king,” Dershowitz said, echoing Trump’s August remark when he said that he was the “chosen one” meant to fix the U.S. economy and trade relations. “The President has the power that kings have never had.”

Death rates from suicide, drug overdoses, liver disease and dozens of other causes have been rising over the past decade for young and middle-aged adults, driving down overall life expectancy in the United States for three consecutive years, according to a strikingly bleak study published Tuesday that looked at the past six decades of mortality data.

The report, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, was immediately hailed by outside researchers for its comprehensive treatment of a still-enigmatic trend: the reversal of historical patterns in longevity.

The United States, despite massive expenditures on health care, has seen increasing mortality and falling life expectancy for people ages 25 to 64, who should be in the prime of their lives,while other wealthy nations have generally experienced continued progress in extending longevity. Although earlier research emphasized rising mortality among non-Hispanic whites, the broad trend detailed in this study cuts across gender, racial and ethnic lines. By age group, the highest relative jump in death rates from 2010 to 2017 — 29 percent — has been among people ages 25 to 34.

Banksters, peasants, and Kim Jong Un’s grandpa: A parable for our times.

When Kim Il Sung’s communist army invaded the South in 1950, they initially met with great success. The ill-equipped and corruption-ridden southern army disintegrated, while MacArthur’s hastily assembled UN army was rushed from Japan. Unfortunately, Mac’s forces were also unprepared, thanks to the abominable staff work of his sycophantic subordinates. They were soon pushed into a small pocket around the port of Pusan (now rendered as Busan) and a desperate battle ensued.

In the meantime, the communists set about creating a peoples’ state in the newly won territory. First order of business when they entered a village was to eliminate supporters of the former regime. Kim was brutal but he was not an idiot, so this was not universally applied. Those regime holdovers who seemed likely to be useful could escape the firing squads, with the result that a few policemen, teachers, local administrators and even a handful of priests were spared.

There was one group that was eradicated without exception, though. All bankers and money-lenders were shot out of hand, their assets confiscated and their ledgers consigned to a bonfire in the village square. This initially made the communists very popular with the peasants, for South Korea had no usury laws and the peasants had been held in ruinous debt for their entire lives. This popularity faded quickly when the communists started confiscating food and drafting men to be fed into the napalm- fueled inferno at the front. The lesson was not lost, though, when the communist army was routed after the Inchon landing and fled back north. It took a while, for a few bankers had managed to survive, but their influence had been drastically reduced. The South eventually instituted fair banking and lending practices and the peasants prospered.

It’s hard to prove a connection and there are many other factors involved, but these events took place less than an average lifetime ago, within my lifetime in fact. In that time, South Korea has gone from backward third-world hellhole to one of the most advanced and prosperous countries in the world.

They’ll make a determination tomorrow morning as to whether the balloons will fly.

As for the airspace intrusion, they lifted the lockdown at the WH and Capitol and continued tracking the aircraft. Not a threat at this time.

My guess is someone wandered into the airspace without realizing it. They will get a talking to now of course upon landing from the USSS among others.

Yeah, I remember that guy and the hog thing from him. Of course, you don’t absolutely have to have a detachable mag rifle for hog hunting. Anything .30-30 and above will do. However, large packs of feral hogs are dangerous and destructive, and clearance efforts probably require a degree of firepower that you do not see with other animals. State game officers are using full auto machine guns from what I understand, and explosives are being considered as well.

Not sure exactly who (NYC? Macy’s?

Those balloons are BIG…

I know, we’ve been out there on Thanksgiving Eve while they blow them up. They look even bigger when you’re standing next to them.

And no balloons is going to seriously cut down the running time of the parade, which means the talking heads are going to end up commenting on each others’ overcoats and earmuffs and whatever else it’ll take to fill up the time until the dog show comes on.

I’ve never been to the balloon filling activities before the parade, but I’ve been to the parade as a kid - a very neat experience. I haven’t been there as an adult, and I can’t stand the parade coverage on tv. It’s nearly always awful.

No balloons? Then spend more time on the marching bands that work so hard to get there.

I like that. Conventional wisdom was that it first took mass protests to get Syngman Rhee out of power in 1959, and then it took the authoritarian regime of Park Chung Hee to make everyone fall into line with promises that soon enough everyone’s boat would rise. When that didn’t happen evenly, it took the KCIA to remove Park through assassination. They went through a lot to get to democracy in the early 1990s; they don’t like corruption (though of course it still happens).

Some of that is the result of the opioid epidemic (the gateway being drugs prescribed by licensed physicians who believed the pharmaceuticals when they said drugs like oxycontin were not addictive, even though there wasn’t any research to that point).

Some of it is the result of reversing expansion of health coverage to millions of Americans - and health coverage in states that refused to expand coverage under the ACA lag in all manner of health outcome metrics, including life expectancy.

Overall gun violence has dropped, but is still far higher in the US than elsewhere in the developed world.

True, but as a military semi-superpower (still smarting from the dissolution of its former “empire”) Russia’s size is pretty much the problem. Too big to be a second-tier Power, but not big enough for the “major leagues”. And then there are those nukes…..

The only reason it ranks as high as 11 or 12 is due to petrodollars. Other than that, it has no real economy. It is a basket case — but one that can blow up the world and destroy everything around it. It is a nation with so much potential but it’s been plagued by incompetent leadership through much of its existence.

re: #275 Hecuba’s daughter

The only reason it ranks as high as 11 or 12 is due to petrodollars. Other than that, it has no real economy. It is a basket case — but one that can blow up the world and destroy everything around it. It is a nation with so much potential but it’s been plagued by incompetent leadership through much of its existence. I’ve always thought that if Trotsky had won the power struggle, the situation might have been different, but who knows?

It’s 11th in nominal GDP and 6th in PPP GDP. But per capita it is 60th and 49th respectively. And that’s with the 9th largest population in the world (about half the US population).

Today would probably be a good day to mute any berniebros you might follow on the twitters:

Former President Barack Obama, who has so far taken a neutral position publicly on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, privately indicated he would speak up to stop Bernie Sanders from becoming the party’s nominee should the Vermont senator make significant gains, Politico reported Tuesday.

Politico’s Ryan Lizza, who spoke to several of Obama’s advisers, wrote that the former president sees his role in the Democratic primary process as “providing guardrails” to make sure it doesn’t get “too ugly” and “to unite the party when the nominee is clear.”

Obama’s not wrong. But it’s going to be a bitchfest on line.

I remember a Thanksgiving (I think it was 1999). My dad put the turkey in the oven, set everything correctly and checked on it three hours later to discover….the oven wasn’t working.

Of course it was a holiday, so no repair option and no stores open at the time. We had to settle for oscar meyer sliced ham (the lunchmeat type stuff) but we still had some good sides and desserts so not all was lost.

An interactive public art installation across the US-Mexico border by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.

Open to the public
November 13 - 24, 2019
Every night, 6:30 to 11:00 PM

Bowie High School, El Paso and
Parque Chamizal, Ciudad Juárez

Three interactive stations on each side of the border will control powerful searchlight beams using a small dial wheel. When lights from any two stations are directed at each other, microphones and speakers automatically switch-on to allow participants to talk with one another, creating cross-border conversations.

The project is curated by Kerry Doyle and León de la Rosa, with programming direction by Edgar Picazo. While a diverse schedule of invited guests will open the installation each evening, everybody is welcome to participate for free.

how do you feel about malaria or plague?
you know, mosquitoes and fleas. .:. not contagious

Malaria is not contagious, plague can be.

Not that has anything to do with vaccines.

And, of course, HPV is contagious.

re: #369 DangerMan (misuser of the sarc tag)

A vaccine costs a fraction of an illness like malaria or cancer, which is generally not spread person to person.

If you can vaccinate a population against cancer or malaria, you’d see a major improvement in other health outcomes, life expectancy, and health funds can be directed at other ailments. You’d also see economic improvements as less time is spent hospitalized/caring for those who are sick, and the emotional toll of getting sick or watching a loved one sickened or dying from these diseases.

HPV vaccine prevents not only HPV but a variety of cancers. In the US, Gardasil prevents infection from HPV 16 and 18, which account for 70% of cervical cancers as well as five additional cancer-causing types (31, 33, 45, 52, and 58) that together account for 10 to 20% of cervical cancers. So, you can prevent 80-90% of cervical cancers, prevent several other kinds of cancer, and these people think it’s not worth it?

Fuck that. Anyone who knows anyone who has had cancer knows that they’d all give whatever they could to avoid getting cancer. A vaccine? I’d take it to avoid the chance I would get a disease as horrible as that.

Leases on up to 40 of the stores will be taken over by the Michaels Co. Inc. and open in 2020 under the Michaels name. It’s unclear which of those locations will be converted into Michaels though Anthony Piperno, CEO of A.C. Moore, said in a statement that information will be disclosed in the next few weeks.

I don’t know. We have the 25th Amendment in the event he’s suddenly unable to perform his duties as president - Wilson and Kennedy were the basic reasons for it - but in this case, he’s still capable of performing his duties.

How much we should know about the president’s health is another story. As is whether or not we are entitled to see his medical records. (This reminds me of the story arch on West Wing when it came out that Bartlett had MS)

But like you (and I) said, even if it’s not contagious, so what? If a vaccine protects you against it who the fuck cares about how you catch it.
