The Contradictions between the Creationist Movements
Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm in Bristol, England, is run by a kindly gentleman named Anthony Bush, who insisted that I not confuse him with those “loony American creationists” who think that Earth is only 6,000 years old. “How old do you think it is?” I queried. “Oh, I’ve worked it out to be around 100,000 years old, with Adam and Eve at around 21,000 years old.” (At an order of magnitude difference that makes Mr. Bush only five zeros shy of reality.)
The Most Amazing Vocal Performance : The Voca People
The Voca People is a new international vocal theater performance that combines amazing vocal sounds and an acapella singing with the art of modern beat-box which imitates the sounds of drums, trumpets, guitars and other instruments and musical effects without using any musical instrument on stage, performed in a humoristic way and with audience participation.
On the Seventh Day God Rocked: Do not miss this.
Enough of the characters have a dark side, often sexually perverted or utterly psychotic, each revealed in part or in full, that you come to assume that all of the characters are so tainted. Which brings a disturbingly familiar measure of mundane realness to the film….

More Than Breakfast In Bed: A Legislative Agenda for Moms
I love celebrating Mother’s Day. Since I was a kid, it was a special day to tell my Mother and Grandmother how much I love them. Now that I’m a Mom, it is a special day to spend with my children. … In our busy lives, these special days are so important. But this year, with the difficult economy posing challenges for all families, our mothers need more than just attention on Mother’s Day. They need a legislative agenda that enables them to thrive – creating economic opportunities for women, protecting the health and safety of mothers and children, and supporting the work women do to build strong, successful families.

Worried parents, tense times complicate Minneapolis schools’ overhaul
The Minneapolis Public Schools parent advisory group had just called its meeting to order last Monday night when Chris Stewart slipped into the room. Quietly, he slid into a seat at the back of the room, opposite the dais where he and the other school board members usually sit when they’re here, and next to a man with his elementary school-age daughter.
The two nodded hellos. And then the father broke into a grin. “Hot in here,” he quipped, laughing.
Stewart snorted and shot back a rueful smile. The temperature was actually quite comfortable, but the remark was dead-on. On the agenda was a preview of the district’s controversial proposal for changing the way students are assigned to schools. The parents present each represented a different MPS program, and each stood to lose something in the reorganization.
If the departure of Specter has done nothing else (and it may have actually done nothing else), it’s made at least a fraction of pundits fess up to what everyone else could already see. The GOP is shrinking like they just hopped into forty degree water and no Speedo in the world is going to cover the embarrassment.
