Man who beheaded passenger on Greyhound bus granted freedom

 

A schizophrenic man who was found not criminally responsible for beheading and cannibalizing a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus was granted an absolute discharge Friday.

That means he will no longer be subject to any conditions or monitoring to ensure he takes his medication.

Manitoba's Criminal Code Review Board granted a request from Will Baker's lawyer to give Baker his full freedom, nine years after the brutal stabbing that horrified passengers.

More PC Crap! 

the reality is that the Murals depict likely what really happened.  Another attempt to change / coverup history.

Notre Dame to cover 19th century Columbus murals due to portrayal of Native Americans

The University of Notre Dame will cover murals in a campus building that depict Christopher Columbus in America, the school's president said, following criticism that the images depict Native Americans in stereotypical submissive poses before white European explorers.

More than 300 students, employees and alumni requested that murals be removed

The University of Notre Dame will cover murals in a campus building that depict Christopher Columbus in America, the school's president said, following criticism that the images depict Native Americans in stereotypical submissive poses before white European explorers.

The 12 murals created in the 1880s by Luis Gregori were intended to encourage immigrants who had come to the U.S. during a period of anti-Catholic sentiment. But they conceal another side of Columbus: the exploitation and repression of Native Americans, said the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame.

It is a "darker side of this story, a side we must acknowledge," Jenkins said in a letter Sunday.

The murals in the Catholic university's Main Building are painted directly on walls. Jenkins said they will be covered, although they still could be occasionally displayed. A permanent display of photos of the paintings will be created elsewhere with an explanation of their context.

"We wish to preserve artistic works originally intended to celebrate immigrant Catholics who were marginalized at the time in society, but do so in a way that avoids unintentionally marginalizing others," Jenkins said.

In 2017, more than 300 students, employees and Notre Dame alumni signed a letter in the campus newspaper that called for the removal of the murals.

Move draws praise, criticism

The president of the Native American Student Association praised Jenkins' decision.

"This is a good step towards acknowledging the full humanity of those native people who have come before us," said Marcus Winchester-Jones, of Dowagiac, Mich.

But Notre Dame law student Grant Strobl said the decision was disappointing.

"If we adopt the standard of judging previous generations by current standards, we may reach a point where there are no longer accomplishments to celebrate," Strobl said.

US Supreme

The United States Supreme Court has allowed President Donald Trump to enforce his policy of banning certain transgender people from the military.

The court voted 5-4 to grant a Trump administration request to lift injunctions blocking the policy while challenges continue in lower courts.

The four liberal judges on the court opposed the ruling.

The policy prohibits "transgender persons who require or have undergone gender transition" from serving.

The president announced on Twitter in 2017 that the country would no longer "accept or allow" transgender Americans to serve in the military, citing "tremendous medical costs and disruption".

 

Former defence secretary Jim Mattis refined the policy to limit it to transgender individuals with a history of gender dysphoria, and it makes exceptions for several hundred transgender people already serving openly or willing to serve "in their biological sex".

Several trial judges around the country had issued injunctions blocking it.

Interesting change to the food guide, let us hope it is supported by scientific evidence and not just another product from the left.

 

Got milk? Not so much. Health Canada’s new food guide drops ‘milk and alternatives’ and favours plant-based protein

 
‎Today, ‎January ‎22, ‎2019, ‏‎19 minutes ago | Sharon Kirkey

At a technical briefing in advance of today’s release of Canada’s updated food guide, Dr. Hasan Hutchinson was asked why anything dairy appeared to be largely absent from the composite plate and snapshots of “healthy eating.”

“Certainly in the picture of the composite plate you’ve got, ah, yogurt — that’s right there in the protein group,” Hutchinson, director general of Health Canada’s office of nutrition policy and promotion, told reporters. And, while it may be hard to see, there is milk in a bowl of porridge and berries.

As expected, “milk and alternatives” — along with “meat and alternatives” — has been scrubbed as a standalone food group in the latest iteration of Canada’s iconic food guide.

The new guide, the first update in more than a decade, recommends vegetables and fruits make up half of any meal and that Canadians choose protein foods that come from plants — not animals — most often.

Hasan said the long-awaited rewrite is based on a rigorous scientific review using the best available evidence, and that industry-commissioned reports were intentionally excluded to reduce any perception of conflict of interest — real or imagined — and to maintain “the confidence of Canadians.”

Gone is the rainbow of the old four food groups: fruit and vegetables; grain products; dairy; and meat. Instead, foods are now grouped into three categories: fruit and vegetables; whole grains (such as whole grain pasta, brown rice and quinoa); and protein foods (lentils, lean red meat, fish, poultry, unsweetened milk and fortified soy beverages, nuts, seeds, tofu, lower fat dairy and cheeses lower in fat and sodium.)

Also gone are recommendations for specific portions or servings of different foods to be eaten daily. Instead, it lists foods Canadians are encouraged to eat on a regular basis, and which ones to limit.

full-res-fg.jpg?w=640

Health Canada’s 2007 food guide.

The emphasis is on a high proportion of plant-based foods and replacing foods that contain mostly saturated fat (cream, high fat cheese, butter and the like) with foods that contain mostly unsaturated fats, like nuts, seeds and avocados. A diet higher in vegetables and fruits is linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, eating more nuts or soy protein can help improve blood fat levels and processed meat has been linked to higher risks of colorectal cancer, Health Canada says.

Water should be our “beverage of choice,” the guide says, because it keeps us hydrated without adding calories to the diet. The guide recommends moving away from fruit juices and other sugary drinks (fruit juice has been struck from the “fruits and vegetable” group). And it warns of the health risks of drinking excess amounts of alcohol, including cancer, hypertension and liver disease. Booze can also be a significant source of free sugars and saturated fat when mixed with syrups, sugary drinks or cream-based liquors.

Canadians are also advised to limit their consumption of highly-processed foods and prepare meals and snacks using ingredients that have little to no added sodium, sugar or saturated fats.

The guide will come with a suite of online resources, including videos, recipes and lifestyle advice: Take time to eat. Notice when you are hungry and when you are full. Eat meals with others.

The old food guide recommended two to three servings of meat or alternatives a day, and two to three servings of milk or alternatives daily.

However, according to a recent survey, 6.4 million Canadians have already restricted or eliminated meat from their diets, while a third of the population intends to do so in the coming months.

The Dairy Farmers of Canada have insisted there is “no scientific justification to minimize the role of milk products” in the Canadian diet and that two to four servings of milk products daily can help promote bone and muscle health.

“Lumping milk products together with other protein foods will lead to inadequate intakes of important nutrients,” the Dairy Farmers of Canada’s Isabelle Neiderer, a registered dietitian, said in a recent statement. The organization has warned that any drastic change to the food rules would harm a sector still reeling from concessions granted in recent trade agreements.

However, scientists such as Dr. Walter Willett, a Harvard nutrition expert (who comes from a long line of dairy farmers) has argued humans have no nutritional requirement for animal milk whatsoever. Last week, a team of international scientists said a “planetary diet” — drastically low in red meat and high in legumes (beans and lentils) — could save millions of lives and the planet.

Hutchinson said Health Canada still recommends lower-fat diary as part of a nutritious diet. He said industry had a chance to have their input during two large rounds of public consultations but that Health Canada made a “very strong commitment” not to meet with industry during the revision process.

“We were very clear that when we were looking at the evidence base that we were not going to be using reports that have been funded by industry as well,” said Hutchinson, who acknowledged the “fair amount of criticism” over industry influence in the making of the 2007 guide.

Sylvain Charlebois, a professor in food distribution and policy at Dalhousie University, sees more trouble for the dairy sector ahead, “since you are now seeing a federal agency discouraging consumers from drinking more milk or eating dairy products.”

“We have a very protectionist system in Canada and domestically we have a federal agency that doesn’t necessarily endorse the nutritional role of dairy products as much as they used to,” he said.

He called the revamped guide an “historic” and positive change. “It’s really about nutrition and quality of life, much more so than providing a pamphlet for Canadian agriculture.”

If you care about the planet, eat more beef

 

  • Calgary Herald
  • 25 Jan 2019
  • DANIELLE SMITH Danielle Smith can be reached at danielle@ 770chqr.com.

Effective immediately, I have vowed to double my beef consumption and I’m doing it to save the planet.

It seems curious timing, doesn’t it, that the week that the British medical journal The Lancet came out with the recommendation to reduce our beef consumption by 90 per cent, the new Canada Food Guide would mirror the recommendations by saying we need to reduce our consumption of red meat and sugar. Really? Are we to believe that eating meat is as bad for you as eating Halloween candy?

Having watched the environmental movement for a long time, I don’t believe in coincidences. Researcher Vivian Krause discovered a co-ordinated attack on our farmed fish industry funded by U.S. interests funnelling money to Canadian environmental groups. She then exposed a co-ordinated attack on our Alberta oil industry funded by U.S. foundations funnelling money to Canadian environmental groups. I want to know who is funding this attack on our beef industry. Whoever it is, the industry needs to fight back.

Not only do I think these “expert” recommendations are dangerous to our health, I also think the loss of our cattle industry would be devastating to our environment.

First, I have a vegan brother so I know that getting the full complement of amino acids from plant proteins takes some work. There are nine amino acids that the body can’t produce itself. To be considered a complete protein, the food has to have all of them. Meat, eggs and dairy are all complete proteins. My brother eats a lot of hemp seeds, quinoa and soy which are also complete proteins. Beans and peas aren’t; they have to be combined with rice to get all you need. If people simply reduce their consumption of meat, without knowing how to get enough whole plant proteins, they aren’t going to be healthier. They are going to get sick.

Second, I also happened to be at a conference of grassland management experts for two days this week, moderating the annual conference of the Association of Alberta Agricultural Fieldmen. These are the folks who ensure Alberta remains rat free and noxious weed free. They know more than anyone about managing rangelands for biodiversity, wetlands and soil health.

One of the experts who spoke at the AAAF conference was Yamily Zavala, who is a crop and soil nutrient management expert with the Chinook Applied Research Association, which incidentally doesn’t get government funding. I suppose if she were working on computer models predicting catastrophe rather than doing applied research on carbon sequestration, it would probably be a different story.

In any case, her research has found a symbiotic relationship between planting a complementary variety of plant species, bacteria and fungi, which work together to sequester carbon in the soil through a number of complex biological and chemical processes. New research from the University of California also recently concluded that grasslands are an even better and more resilient carbon storage option than trees.

AAAF passed a resolution to request that Alberta Agriculture and Forestry develop a process to allow farmers and landowners to access carbon credits for land used for permanent pasture, perennial forage or land that is left forested. They presented research that these lands can sequester as much as nine tonnes of carbon per acre. If producers were paid the going rate of $30 a tonne for their sequestration efforts, that would be $270 an acre. On a 1,000-acre ranch, that would amount to $270,000.

If our food producers are capturing and permanently storing this much carbon, then they darn well should be getting paid for it.

I shudder to think what would happen if, at the next UN meeting in Paris or Marrakech or Katowice, our federal government bends to the will of environmental zealots and signs a new protocol to reduce our cattle herds to 90 per cent below 2005 levels by 2050.

Imagine what would happen if we did that. What would become of those carefully managed grasslands? They would very quickly become an overgrown fire hazard, and we’d end up with out-of-control grassland fires burning all over the prairies, releasing carbon dioxide as they incinerated.

Let’s just stop this insanity right now. If you care about your health and the planet, you should eat more beef.

Most of my Liberal acquaintances are no longer in support of excessive (this degree) of accommodation. While they still react negatively when I ask "what did you think was going to happen?" most have reached a point where they no longer wish to pay for the continuing escalation of madness.

Three questions need to be asked when tearing down traditional (or social) norms and reconstructing them to reflect Liberal values, where is this likely to go, how can it be abused and are we willing to pay for the effects of the first two. If you aren't willing to pay, the first two are rendered moot.... all three are difficult concepts for most Liberals to fathom.

Just researched that source...apparently a satire site so I deleted the post. The good news is society hasn’t degraded  that low....YET

 

 

NPC Daily is a satire site, providing political and cultural commentary with wanton sarcasm. NPC Daily pokes fun of modern journalism and liberalism. ... NPC Dailydoesn't support physical or verbal attacks against anyone for any reason.

Even so, it now stands as something that falls within the realm of consideration as yesterday's satire becomes today's policy initiatives. I would have bet money that there would never be 59 genders.

 Regardless though, I do detect a subtle change in some Liberal acquaintances which (hopefully) bodes well for the future. All I have ever asked from them is the willingness to pay for what they want.

A great idea but probably against the law.

How do you compost a human body - and why would you?

By Ritu Prasad BBC News
An artist vision of a future Recompose facility shows circular vessels in a honeycomb structure in a gardenImage copyright Recompose/MOLT Studios Image caption An artist vision of a future composting facility

This is the vision - in an indoor garden, a honeycomb structure lines the walls, and inside each cell, a human body composts. When it's done, loved ones take home a pot of soil, not an urn of ash.

A person's final resting place could be the foundations of a flowerbed or could feed the roots of a tree.

This is what Washington state is preparing to legalise. If the bill passes, the western state would be the first in the nation to allow human composting as a burial option.

Here's what it means to choose a compost burial - and why a growing group of Americans are eschewing convention for a new way to rest in peace.

Lying in the open, a human body can take months to return to earth, says forensic anthropologist Daniel Wescott.

First, the skin "slips" and blisters. It turns blacks and greys and greens. It bloats.

In drier climes, it can mummify for years; in wetter ones, a face becomes a skull in weeks.

Prof Wescott of Texas State University studies the decomposition of human bodies at the largest forensic research centre in the country.

"As long as you have good bacterial activity, you can decompose in probably a month."

But this is a rarely a body's fate these days.

Most will be cremated, buried in a casket, or sealed in a vault - eating up wood, land, and other resources in the process.

A growing number of voices in the Pacific Northwest are now saying that isn't enough.

"Nature knows how to transform our bodies to soil all on its own," Nina Schoen says.

The 48-year-old Seattle resident is among the groundswell of people seeking greener ways to die.

"What's most important to me is that after I'm gone, my body is able to give back to this earth that has supported me, and through that create new life."

In 30 days, Recompose can turn you into useable, fertile, soil.

"It's just an accelerated process of natural decomposition," says Nora Menkin, executive director of People's Memorial, a non-profit funerary services advocacy group in Seattle, Washington.

The driving force behind the movement in Washington state is Katrina Spade and her company, Recompose.

The method it offers is based on the ways we already compost livestock - with a few changes from Washington State University soil science researcher Prof Lynne Carpenter-Boggs to make the mixture more socially acceptable.

Based on research from Prof Carpenter-Boggs' team, the final process involves placing the body in a mix of wood chips and similar composting materials, allowing thermophilic - heat-loving - microbes and bacteria to get to work.

Remains are also heated to 131 F (55 C), killing off contagions so the resulting soil is safe to use - a key part of why many supporters prefer this manner of burial.

"We have all this energy and potential that's either burned up or sealed away in burials, when it could be utilised to let life go on," Ms Menkin says.

Energy is a recurring theme for supporters of the alternative burial movement: Most say they began looking into these options because they wanted to round out their lives in a greener way.

"Environmental concerns are very important to me and play an active role in my day to day choices," Ms Schoen says.

"It's a lens that runs through all parts of my life. It only makes sense that how I die is also aligned with how I live."

Recompose touts their process as using "1/8 the energy of cremation", saving an estimated metric ton of CO2 emissions per person over conventional methods.

In Washington state, which has one of the highest rates of cremation in the country, Ms Menkin says it could make a real difference.

"My initial reaction was, well, that's a lot of work for what seems like a natural burial," she says.

Those involve placing a body in a biodegradable casket or just a shroud before burial, allowing the body to return to nature, naturally.

Many places, like the UK, already offer natural burials. But advocates for human composting like Ms Menkin say the practice could increase accessibility to green funerals worldwide.

"If it brings the option to urban dwellers and becomes available worldwide, especially in really urban areas that don't have the option for any kind of natural burial, that could be a real asset to those areas and the planet."

Disposing of any human remains on non-cemetery grounds, unless you are the landowner, is a minor crime. And using public lands requires the approval of government agencies controlling the lands and waters.

Those laws will hold true for recomposed burials too, but when remains are useable soil, even city-dwellers might find spaces to memorialise the departed.

"Natural burial is quite wonderful, but as the population increases, there is less available land, and that's to me why having an option like recomposition is so essential," Ms Schoen echoes.

Recompose founder Katrina Spade told Pacific Standard magazine she hopes the company will one day transform city warehouses into indoor gardens where people can lay their loved ones to rest and see the body's "journey of transformation from human to soil".

Cremation was once heralded as the environmental answer to death; burning bodies meant no caskets, no toxic embalming chemicals, no plots of land rendered unusable.

Most of the world already prefers cremation burials, particularly in urban centres faced with ever-decreasing space. The US is catching up.

In 2018, just over half of America's 2.8 million dead were laid to rest via a crematorium, according to data from the US census and National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA).

Cremation's lower cost accounts for much of its popularity boost, the report says, but environmental concerns, fewer religious prohibitions, a newly transient population, and a cultural desire for less ritualistic practices have also changed America's relationship with death.

Washington in particular has an unchurched, environmentally-conscious population, making it a natural leader of these changes.

By 2035, the NFDA predicts only 15% nationwide will opt for traditional burials.

University of Southern California public policy Prof David Sloane, whose family tree features a line of cemetery superintendents, says the country is in a "moment of cultural hybridity".

"Conventions around death, dying, memorials and mournings are all being challenged," he says.

Those challenges come from all manner of changes, he thinks. Like people choosing to die at home rather than in hospital; people mourning on social media rather than in church.

"Human composting is just one more example of how people are experimenting.

"It in some sense flies in the face of longstanding conventions and at the same time responds to new concerns about environmental issues. And so I think those two things make it very novel."

Ms Schoen also tells me most people are shocked to hear how environmentally unfriendly current practices are.

"One of the most common reactions people have when hearing [about recomposition] for the first time is surprise when learning about the negative environmental impacts of burial, cremation, and embalming."

But experimenting can be costly.

"An issue that a lot of people have is the expense of it all," says Ms Menkin of People's Memorial. "Right now it's projected to cost about $5,500 (£4,200). To be in an urban centre you need real estate, design - it's not a cheap project to take on."

The median cost of a burial and viewing ceremony in the US is over $7,000. For a vault, you can add another thousand.

Cremations fall closer to $1,100.

The push for compost burials is still small and grassroots. It's certainly not an option that would appeal to everyone.

Prof Sloane adds that as culture changes, there will always be ethical and societal questions raised by the composting of bodies.

"Will people's bodies be cared for honourably? And will we continue to be able to remember them as parts of our communities?"

Like the cremationists of the late 19th Century, Prof Sloane says there's a chance the movement will see pushback from religious institutions and the existing funeral industry.

But for now, Recompose and advocates for compost burials are just focused on making it a legal option, Ms Menkin says.

"What's really surprising is we were ready to convince people and let them know just because it's different doesn't mean it's bad."

But they are overwhelmingly getting support, Ms Menkin says, "with a few people who just don't want to think about it".

Ms Schoen, who hopes her family can use her remains to create life in whatever way is meaningful for them, says Americans "just don't talk about death enough".

"It's separate, it's somewhere else with someone else, until it's not."

"And while it's a topic that many people don't like to talk a lot about, it's pretty incredible when you sit back and think about it."

Something’s gotta change ...

 

Outrage as woman gets early parole after stabbing senior 149 times

 

Alletta Rusnell was 89, a sweet and beloved great-grandmother who’d just joked with her family that she was feeling so well she was destined to live to 100.

Thanks to her cruel, crack addict neighbour, that wasn’t to be.

Just a few days later, Sharon Baksh broke into her Oshawa apartment and murdered the widow, plunging a knife at least 149 times into her frail body, fatally penetrating her heart, lung and abdomen.

It’s hard to comprehend the evil rage inherent in someone who could stab a defenceless old woman so many times during a robbery. Yet just over five years later, her killer is free.

So this morning I was browsing through my Facebook news feed and so far I’ve come across numerous articles about that idiot Kaepernick disrespecting the American Anthem and then how every Leftist in America suddenly hates Adam Levine just for doing his JOB......but interesting enough not ONE article on who WON the bloody game! I had to Google it to find the score. I will admit I no longer follow football since it turned into a political circus, in fact I didn’t even know or care who was playing.

 It’s like the Super Bowl suddenly has nothing to do with football anymore.

A little bit of "reality" for Toronto.....

This is what being a sanctuary city is all about. This is what a sanctuary city does. This is what a sanctuary city is. You wanted to be a sanctuary city and you are. There was no other likely outcome and if you look back on it, these folks were invited. That invitation was intended as a swat at DJT policies.... did you think no one would take you up on it or was your offer insincere from the start?

 All of this is self inflicted.... and no, I don't feel obliged to help. Raise taxes in Toronto and get er done.

Just when I thought there was little new in the world, along comes the career of Professional Cuddler (I kid you not).

  http://capcuddlers.org/

And no personal experience, I have my own cuddler.  😀  But there was a reference to it in a mystery book I was reading and I thought it was a fictional reference until I asked Google   "What is a professional cuddler".
