In December 2005, the FBI opened a file on the religious extremist group the “Church of the Hammer.”
Named after the infamous treaty on witchcraft and allegedly founded by a protégée of Westboro Baptists’ Fred Phelps, the group called for violent retribution on those in defiance of God’s will.
Particularly practitioners of the goth subculture, but they weren’t by any means picky.

Roughly 22 million Americans have already cast their vote through a combination of absentee ballots, voting by mail or at the polls.

Bill Clinton’s alleged love child, Danney Williams is asking Monica Lewinsky to allow him to conduct DNA testing on the famous blue dress to prove he is his biological father, Radar Online reports.
Danney Lee Williams, Jr. is a 30-year-old construction worker that lives in Arkansas. He made the shocking claim that he is Bill ‘s son by an African-American prostitute. Williams believes that Lewinsky’s blue dress would prove that Bill is his father, and asked Monica to hand it over to clear up the speculation about his paternity.
Monica testified in court that the strain on the famous blue dress resulted from a sexual act that she performed on Clinton in the Oval Office while he was president. The F.B.I confirmed that the DNA from the dress was a perfect match for Bill’s DNA.
It’s a familiar scenario: You’re binge-watching your favorite television show before it expires from Netflix. You have a bowl of popcorn on one side, and a cat on the other. Absorbed in the program, you carelessly toss a handful of popcorn into your mouth, and few kernels fall into your lap. A crunching sound catches your ears, and you look down to see the cat chewing on a stray kernel. Alarmed, you mutter, “Can cats eat popcorn?”
As a general rule, keep any kind of popcorn away from very young kittens and senior cats, as it can present choking or digestive hazards that they are not equipped to deal with. For the majority of our cats, though, the answer is yes and no; it really depends on the way your popcorn is prepared, whether there are additives that might upset your cat’s digestion, and the amount of popcorn you’re allowing your cat to ingest.
Popcorn and feline nutrition
Without getting into the ongoing debate over whether cats should be subjected to vegetarian diets — they shouldn’t — a quick glance at your standard bag or tin of cat food is revealing. The bag of dry kibble that my cat eats has, as its first listed ingredient, ground yellow corn. This use of corn meal in cat food is extremely common, meant to create cohesion for the kibbles, and as a filler. It also provides a strictly limited amount of supplemental carbohydrates for energy.
LEXINGTON, Mass. — “I’m a frickin’ pioneer, man,” Kevin Hrusovksy, CEO of Quanterix said. “I see the opportunity to eliminate pain and suffering . . . and we’re going to do it.”
The revolutionary work is happening in a nondescript corporate office where a dozen armoire-sized automated boxes glean minute protein biomarkers in blood samples with unprecedented sensitivity. Quanterix’s proprietary technology can isolate a single blade of grass in a field the size of Alaska, says Hrusovksy.
Such technology, combined with an emerging body of science surrounding biomarkers, whose applications extend to neurology, has caught the National Football League’s attention. Recent medical research has documented the release of several blood-borne biomarkers such as tau proteins, GFAP, UCH-L1, and neurofilament light—yes, one of the substances is known as “NFL”—after traumatic brain injuries.
This summer the FCC convened a “Robocall Task Force” to help consumers fight unwanted automated telemarketers, and Wednesday the coalition finally delivered a report recommending a “Do Not Originate” list so carriers could spot spoofed numbers which should be blocked.
A trial of the “DNO” list that’s been running for the last few weeks on some IRS numbers has resulted in a 90 percent drop in the volume of IRS scam calls, officials from AT&T, which leads the strike force, said during the FCC meeting Wednesday. The carriers on the strike force, which include Sprint, Verizon, and many others, plan to continue testing the DNO list in the coming months, with the intent to fully implement it some time next year…
The strike force members also are working on a system to classify calls into categories, such as political or charity, as a way to give consumers more information before they answer calls from unknown numbers. And, the group said it has developed a working solution for authentication between VoIP applications and traditional landline networks as another way to defeat spoofing from callers in foreign countries.
Early next year they’re planning larger tests — and the strike force has also created a new site describing how to block and report robocalls.
