A319 'Spy Plane' Joins Fight Against Antarctic Whaling
Aussies Monitoring Japanese "Scientific" Mission
Nevermind the A380... here's a true Airbus "whalejet." Australia has deployed an impressive new tool in its opposition against Japanese whaling operations in the Antarctic -- an A319 narrowbody, outfitted with advanced surveillance and imaging equipment.
The plane -- deployed along with the Customs patrol cruiser 'Oceanic Viking' -- reportedly conducted a six-hour mission Sunday, keeping an eye on what is an ostensibly scientific Japanese whaling program now underway, reports The Sydney Morning Herald.
The surveillance is an effort by the government of Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, to help build an international legal case against what many believe are illegal whale-hunting operations. The aircraft performed well -- identifying two foreign fishing vessels, according to a spokeswoman for Home Affairs Minister Bob Debus. Poor weather conditions prevented the Airbus from reaching its primary search area.
The plane is just the latest vehicle to join what has escalated into an all-out, Cold War-esque spy game in the chilly seas of the Antarctic. The conservation group Sea Shepherd -- also holding station in the area, to monitor suspected whaling operations -- reports one of its vessels, the 'Steve Irwin,' was shadowed last week by a Japanese fishing trawler.
"The Fukuyoshi Maru No. 68 is a large drag trawler," said Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson. "It's a fast ship and can easily stay out of reach of the 'Steve Irwin'. The Sea Shepherd helicopter has flown over and it is not equipped with any fishing gear. There is evidence of electronic surveillance gear."
A Greenpeace International ship, the 'Esperanza,' is also shadowing the Japanese whaling ship 'Nisshin Maru' -- and, in turn, is being followed by the catcher ship 'Yushin Maru No. 2,' according to Greenpeace whales campaign coordinator Sara Holden. With all the spying going on, it's doubtful anyone has any time to conduct any other operations, scientific or otherwise... and that's the intent, Holden says.
"So long as they are not whaling, that's the point," she said. "The fact we are in day 10 without any whales being taken is fantastic. We suspect that the orders from Tokyo are for nobody to see them whaling. This is a delicate time for them politically."
If needed, the Aussie A319 is ready to fly other missions, according to the Home Affairs spokeswoman.

Under pressure from another alpha predator, human hunters (along with state officials eager to keep hunters happy), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has changed a rule in a way that has wildlife campaigners howling.
The complaints are not about the section allowing someone to kill a wolf attacking, say, a dog or livestock. It’s the part about states and tribal governments having the right to allow greatly expanded killing of wolves in “non-essential” populations where local officials determine that wolf packs are taking too big a share of deer and elk herds also coveted by hunters.
In a news release, the Fish and Wildlife Service said the states needed more flexibility to allow them to “manage” and “remove” wolves (euphemisms for shooting them) where their predatory skills are too effective.
“The states have done an excellent job managing wolves, and this revision will provide the extra flexibility they may need to manage wolves for some time in the future,” said Jay Slack, acting regional director for the service’s Mountain-Prairie Region, in the release.
The Sierra Club complained bitterly today in its own release, estimating that the action could result in the killing of all but 600 of the approximately 1,500 wolves in the region.
“If we call open season on wolves now, we could soon find ourselves back at the starting line. It’s a tremendous waste of taxpayer dollars,” said Sierra Club representative Melanie Stein. “Deer and elk populations are thriving in this region. There’s absolutely no reason to begin slaughtering wolves, other than to please a handful of special interests. This is another example of politics trumping science in the Bush administration. Federal and state agencies are tripping over each other, and our wildlife are suffering as a result.”
Local governments have been pressing for the change for awhile, and in the rural West, the right of humans to dominate nature is as deep-rooted as the laws of physics. Kirk Johnson of The Times filed a fine piece on wolves and the changing West earlier this month. [UPDATE 1/25: The above sentence was written in haste. There’s no geographic constraint to the human tendency to try to dominate the wild. The East did it long ago. Humans in the Amazon are still at it.]
As human populations expand, there’ll be ever more such clashes between human interests and those of wide-ranging wildlife, whether in the Serengeti or Wyoming.
Thankfully there's at least one sweet, sane person in Wyoming.
Thanks to the economic stimulus package and our government we can get further in debt for less money. Sweet deal! It's the American way!
Speaking of debt don't forget to vote for 6 Degrees of Casey Serin to Hillary Clinton.

29 things to be happy about
Yes, it's all doom and gloom and war and global warming and Bush. Except when it's not
28) A whopping 84 percent of Americans claim to be somewhere between "pretty happy" and "very happy." No, no one knows what sort of crack they're smoking. I mean, haven't they all seen the global warming? The imminent apocalypse? The staph infections and the drug-resistant bacteria and the Islamo-fascists and Dick Cheney's black and vile stare? Why all the happiness? It is because of all the Prozac? Or is it because of No. 29?

oOh come on, it's so obvious.
Hillary (and Bill) Clinton lost a lot of money on their investment in speculative real estate that they bought sight-unseen when interest rates went up and the market collapsed. They were eventually investigated by the feds but never formally charged with a crime.
Casey Serin lost a lot of money on his investment in speculative real estate that he bought sight-unseen when interest rates went up and the market collapsed. He was eventually investigated by the feds but (so far) never formally charged with a crime.
The key difference is that in the wake of the investigations it was revealed that Bill Clinton got a blowjob, yet he remained married. It is presumed that Casey has not received a blowjob (it would lead to a false sense of accomplishement...), yet will soon be divorced.-btc

Look in kc's murse and you'll find a wad of money, or more likely, credit cards.
Blue is the color of kc's ball(s), shirt, water bottle & cat-5 cable.
Blue was the color of Monica Lewinski's dress.
Forensic analysis of the dress revealed a wad of Bill's.
Mr. Clinton & kc both have experience sleeping on the sofa whilst the marital bed flew solo.
And Bill Clinton is connected in some indefinable way to Hillary.
And both have Blue-Sky dreams.

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Dance Off!
GREENVILLE — Former President Bill Clinton said today that he would take Senator Barack Obama up on his challenge last night to prove himself as the first black president by entering a dance competition — against Mr. Obama.
Mr. Obama was asked at last night’s debate whether Mr. Clinton was “the first black president,” as Toni Morrison, the novelist, has said. Mr. Obama replied that he would first have to see whether Mr. Clinton can dance before calling him a brother. It was a brief moment of levity in a contentious slug-fest of a debate with Senator Hillary Clinton and former Senator John Edwards.
In response to a question at a town hall meeting here today, Mr. Clinton said, “I would be willing to engage in a dancing competition with him, even though he’s much thinner and younger than I am, but only if I got an age allowance.”
If it indeed happens it should be f-ing hilarious.

Since some concerned citizens managed to get Google to censor Zillow Book™ the crawlers are no longer directing like-minded folks to the blog, hence the creation of the Zillow Book™ subsidiaries Zillowed™ and Nietzsche Koi™. I'm also experimenting with releasing the full rss feeds to see if it makes a difference. I don't particularly like high res images in my feeds so I'll abandon that change if it doesn't work.
Anyway, I still can't figure out what was objectionable about the artistic nudes and such.

In other news Ogg found this link about Casey's appearance on the Dr. Phil Show tonight and noted the following quote from G:
'I want to cut all ties with my ex-husband and move on with my life. I want to hold on to my newfound peace. I have had more peace in the last four months living without him than I've had in the last three years living with him.'
One final question: Octopuses often appear in your works. Why is that?
I just love them! (Laughs) They are kind of kinky, I think. I would love to do a whole exhibition on the theme of octopuses some day.
Ahem, I don’t think I can ever look at an octopus the same carefree way again, when I see one sliced up the next time I’m at a sushi shop…

Thankfully the tedious Democratic debate is over so I can stop worrying that my foot could be filled with flesh-eating bacteria and maggots like the one on the left. When I get bored hypochondria sets in and this shit is fucking scary.
Sanyo calls their creation the Solar Ark. But let’s face it: it’s the Sanyo Solar Penis. At over a thousand feet long and 120 feet high, it’s the biggest solar wang in the world.
The Ark is actually is pretty cool piece of technology. It’s covered with over five thousand high-efficiency solar panels — enough to generate 500,000 KWh of clean, green electricity. There’s a built-in solar energy museum, and multicolor lights across the Ark’s surface can be used to spell out a variety of animated messages. Viagra commercials, perhaps.
No doubt Sony is dying of solar envy.

What a great idea!
DETROIT — General Motors (GM) says it is investing in a fledgling company that claims its secret process could be able to make ethanol from waste in large quantity as soon as 2010 for $1 a gallon or less, half the cost of making gasoline.
Bill Roe, CEO of 18-month-old ethanol maker Coskata, says the company's process uses bacteria developed at the University of Oklahoma and existing gasification technology to generate 99.7% pure ethanol, plus water. He says the method should leapfrog cellulosic production, which has been seen as the next step from today's ethanol production using corn.
GM won't disclose its investment, but Roe says it's enough to make Coskata "a speed-to-market play. I don't think most people saw this coming," he says. "Most talk about cellulosic ethanol is futuristic."
Coskata's process can use garbage, old tires and other waste, but Roe says wood waste probably will be used at first because it's available, cheap and easy to handle.
More from General Motors finances ethanol maker Coskata
