The witness' account of the unarmed Brown charging Wilson--even after he had been shot in the hand during a struggle at the cop' patrol car--supports the officer' contention that he fired a series of shots as Brown bore down on him.During his grand jury testimony, Wilson recounted how he tussled with Brown when the teenager grabbed for his gun while lunging into the squad car. As they fought over the weapon, Wilson testified, the teenager taunted him, yelling, "You're too much of a pussy to shoot me."http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/darren-wilson/witnesss-said-brown-charged-wilson-897043

Though we have shared information with local prosecutors during the course of our investigation, the federal inquiry has been independent of the local one from the start, and remains so now. Even at this mature stage of the investigation, we have avoided prejudging any of the evidence.

"American consumers are profoundly and negatively affected by wrongful debt collection tactics on a daily basis," said Lisa Stifler, a CRL policy counsel. "No one should be forced to deal with illegal collection activity, and debt collectors should not be allowed to exploit seniors' vulnerability in order to make a profit."No one - and especially our older Americans - deserves to become financial prey. As families look forward to the holiday season, remember to help older loved ones remain free from profiteers.

Joe Biden retreats from angry crowd in Ukraine - Washington Times

Vice President Joseph R. Biden retreated from an angry crowd in Kiev Friday when his Secret Service agents decided the situation was not safe.Mr. Biden was to meet with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko at a site in central Kiev where demonstrators were killed earlier this year during the country' revolution. But his motorcade encountered a large and "unruly" crowd, many of whom were shouting "shame" at Mr. Poroshenko for failing to prosecute those responsible for the killings.http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/21/joe-biden-retreats-from-angry-crowd-in-ukraine/

Be Careful Who You Admire and Trust - They May Be a Complete Fake

Yesterday, I was speaking with a dear friend, William Arruda, who's a true expert in helping people build their personal brands. We got on the subject of our recent eye-opening experience of discovering someone we're working with (with celebrity status) is a total fake. While I believe we're both savvy professionals, fakers can slip through even the most discerning of filters.Since launching my blog on Forbes and on my own website, I've found myself immersed in a world of "experts" and information "gurus" - individuals who have worked tirelessly and often selflessly to master a particular field or area, and have vitally important information to share with the world. I've also brushed up against hundreds of people who simply pretend to be experts, but don't have a grasp on what they claim to be teaching, and are after only two things - self-advancement and fame.https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/article/20141122151713-17850276-be-careful-who-you-admire-and-trust-they-may-be-a-complete-fakeSource:      Source:

The violence against Jews by Muslims and their leftist goons, so prevalent in Eurabia (Europe and UK), has come to America. Everywhere there is Muslim immigration, the pattern is the same.

A gang of anti-Semitic thugs roughed up a Jewish man and his wife on the Upper East Side on Monday evening before fleeing in cars flying Palestinian flags, police sources told The Post. Two cars and multiple motorcycles pulled up to the couple on East 63rd Street near Third Avenue just after 8 p.m., and the assailants began yelling "anti-Jewish statements," the sources said. One of the goons threw a water bottle that hit the wife, and the 27-year-old husband was punched in the side of his head when he came to her defense, according to law enforcement sources. (NYP)

RESIDENTS OF SMALL MASSACHUSETTS TOWN ARE INFURIATED OVER ...

A firestorm of outrage has erupted in a small Massachusetts town over a a local government agency' proposal to ban all sales of tobacco and nicotine products.

According to the New York Times, local residents are infuriated with a plan by the local Board of Health that would make Westminster - a town of 7,400 - the first county in the nation to prohibit the sales of cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco.

"It' un-American," resident Rick Sparrow, 48, told the Times.

That sentiment was echoed by several others.

"They're just taking away everyday freedoms, little by little," Nate Johnson, 32, told the newspaper. "This isn't about tobacco, it' about control."

India quarantines man over Ebola sex risk - Telegraph

India has quarantined a man who was cured in Liberia of Ebola but showed traces of the disease in his semen samples after arriving in the country.

The 26-year-old Indian national showed a certificate during mandatory screening at Delhi airport on November 10 to show he had successfully undergone treatment for the virus, according to the country's health ministry.

He was quarantined at the airport as a precaution and his blood tested negative for Ebola. But his semen was subsequently tested on Monday and was found positive for the disease, it said.

"The person concerned is a treated and cured case of Ebola Virus Disease," the ministry said.

Oil Price Slide - No Good Way Out :: Zero Hedge

Submitted by Gail Tverberg via Our Finite World blog,The world is in a dangerous place now. A large share of oil sellers need the revenue from oil sales. They have to continue producing, regardless of how low oil prices go unless they are stopped by bankruptcy, revolution, or something else that gives them a very clear signal to stop. Producers of oil from US shale are in this category, as are most oil exporters, including many of the OPEC countries and Russia.http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-09/oil-price-slide-%E2%80%93-no-good-way-out

Google X Is Developing a Disease Detection Device Similar to the ‘Star Trek’ Tricorder

by Glen Tickle

tricorder

Google X Life Sciences, led by Andrew Conrad, is working on a disease-detection device similar to the Star Trek tricorder. The device would work by deploying specially designed nanoparticles into the body that interact with different markers for disease. These nanoparticles would signal a device that Conrad says would be worn on the wrist to catch diseases at the early stages, when they are most easily and successfully treated.

Conrad described the status of the project in great detail in an interview with Steven Levy of Backchannel, and predicts that the device will be a reality within five to ten years.

Embarrassing: Jimmy Kimmel Sends Out Camera Crew To Ask Dumbass Americans ‘Who Is Joe Biden?’

by Ayala Chaviva
Occasion2B

I'm hoping for the country's sake that they had to go through thousands of people before they found these few.

Via GAWKER:

Who is Joe Biden (other than the hardest-partying vice president in U.S. history, that is)? When a visit from the VP interfered with traffic near Jimmy Kimmel’s studio, he sent a reporter out to Hollywood Boulevard to find out what Americans really know about this Biden character.

Consensus: Biden is probably a man. A congressman. A senator. The governor. An actor. A Republican. Maybe a terrorist? Definitely not someone who would be friends with Barack Obama.

Forgotten vice president (is there any other kind?) Thomas Marshall, who served under Woodrow Wilson, is said to have told a story about two brothers: “One ran away to sea; the other was elected vice president of the United States. And nothing was heard of either of them again.”

It’s okay, Joe. You’ll always have the Summer of ’87.

1.2 million Ebola deaths projected in 6 months

NEW YORK - An econometric simulation model based on the assumption the World Health Organization and others will be unable to control the Ebola outbreak in West Africa predicts 1.2 million people will die from the disease in the next six months.Six months is the minimum time the WHO projects will be necessary to contain the epidemic.In his analysis, econometrics research assistant Francis Smart at Michigan State University took seriously the conclusions of Canadian researchers who proved the strain of Ebola in the current West African epidemic could go airborne.The Ebola virus could be transmitted between humans through breathing, Smart says.

Shock asteroid warning: Earth faces 100 years of killer strikes beginning in 2017 - or maybe even ea

Asteroids could rain down on the earth for 100 years, shocked experts have just warned.A previously unknown asteroid belt has been located in deep space and is now hurtling towards our part of the solar system.It means a 'global killer' could collide with Earth as soon as 2020, wiping out life as we know it and changing the climate for millennia.The terrifying predictions came as NASA revealed disturbing new data showing 400 impacts are expected between 2017 and 2113, based on new observational data of objects seen in space over the past 60 days.Most will have a maximum diameter of around 100 metres - the size of seven double decker buses - and the potential to cause significant damage.But concerned scientists warned a colossal "monster" is also heading our way, with one 'mega' asteroid threatening earth in just SIX years.It follows claims this week by physicist Professor Brian Cox that a bus-sized asteroid, named 2014 EC, came within 61,637 kilometres (38,300 miles) of Earth in March.He said there is an "asteroid with our name on it" and it is only a matter of time before an asteroid large enough to wipe out the human race collides with Earth.Many believe an asteroid was responsible for killing the dinosaurs with a similar life-changing event potentially just around the corner.Professor Bill Napier, an astronomy expert at the University of Buckingham, said a strike by either an asteroid or debris from a comet could have devastating consequences.

Would you like a kitten with your coffee? Montrealers open city’s first cat café

by Benjamin Shingler, Associated Press

A new Montreal restaurant, Café des Chats, which opened its doors on Saturday, is a lot like a regular coffee house — except it’s home to eight cats.

Along with the usual tables and chairs designed for human clientele, the space is filled with scratching posts, plush toys, and a special multi-level window perch for the felines-in-residence.

Nadine Spencer, who helped set up the business along with her partner, said the concept is a big hit in Asia and, more recently, has gained popularity in Europe.

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graham Hughes
THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graham HughesAnsa Mao, of Toronto, takes the paw of a cat at the newly opened Cat Cafe in Montreal, Sunday, August 31, 2014.

“We thought, ‘why not bring this to Montreal?’ I think it’s a city that could definitely use it,” she said Sunday.

“There’s a lot of places that don’t accept cats these days and there are a lot of students here for a short time. And it’s also great therapy.”

There are plans to open cat cafés in several cities, including Vancouver and Toronto. There’s even another one set to open a few blocks away in Montreal.

The crowd of people packed into Spencer’s café on Sunday suggests there’s plenty of demand.

Michelle Lau made the trip from Toronto for the opening weekend.

“We’re big cat lovers and I can’t wait until one opens in our city,” said Lau, 24, explaining that she has a dog at home and is reluctant to bring a kitty into the mix.

“I think it’s just a nice environment. You sit down, you have a coffee, and you play with the cats.”

Part of the goal was to give a few cats a second chance.

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graham Hughes
THE CANADIAN PRESS/Graham HughesA cat relaxes at the newly opened Cat Cafe in Montreal, Sunday, August 31, 2014.

They are all adopted from the SPCA and have already made themselves comfortable in their new home, Spencer said. The cats have their own private quarters at the back of the shop, for when they want some quiet time or need to use the kitty litter.

“Personalities are already coming out,” she said.

“There’s definitely The Godfather, who kind of oversees everything in. There’s the big boss, Big Foot, and the Three Little Rascals, as I like to call them. I think they’re going to be the one to be in charge eventually.”

Hello Kitty Isn't a Cat, Apparently

She's a cat with no hat.


The news: Japanese cultural phenomenon Hello Kitty is turning 40 this week, and though the billion-dollar sensation hasn't aged one bit, her creators have revealed something kind of startling: Hello Kitty, apparently, is not a kitty at all.

In a Los Angeles Times report, Harvard anthropologist Christine R. Yano explained that while preparing written texts for an exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum, Hello Kitty's corporate owner, Sanrio, quickly corrected Yano for referring the cartoon character as a cat:

"I was corrected — very firmly. That's one correction Sanrio made for my script for the show. Hello Kitty is not a cat. She's a cartoon character. She is a little girl. She is a friend. But she is not a cat. She's never depicted on all fours. She walks and sits like a two-legged creature. Read More

PressTV - Russia' aid convoy pretense for invading Ukraine: US official

The United States says Russia is preparing to attack Ukraine under the pretext of sending humanitarian aid to the country, according to an American official."We are concerned that Russia could try to use a humanitarian or peacekeeping operation as a pretense for inserting elements of its military force into Ukraine," the unnamed official told The Hill on Tuesday.Nearly 300 Russian trucks have set off from Moscow, carrying 2,000 tons of aid, including medicine, food, sleeping bags and power generators. Ukraine, however, rejected the convoy.Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister Danylo Lubkivsky said that there would be no need for humanitarian aid.Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren said on Tuesday, "If this is some sort of Trojan Horse, it would be illegal."During a press briefing on Tuesday, State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf condemned Moscow' aid move.

"Russia has no right to move into Ukraine unilaterally, whether under the guise of humanitarian convoys or any other pretext, without Kiev's permission," she said.

When asked whether the convoy was an invasion, she replied, "Well, we don't know."
