From Southern Fried Science comes a post titled The ecological disaster that is dolphin safe tuna. The upshot is that "dolphin-safe" methods are disastrous to other species. Key takeaway:
If you work out the math on this ... you find that 1 dolphin saved costs 382 mahi-mahi, 188 wahoo, 82 yellowtail and other large fish, 27 sharks, and almost 1,200 small fish.
We had a co-ed game tonight and it was another good one. A close first half ended with us up 1-0. We added another early in the 2nd, but then the opposition pressed hard in hopes of getting their own goal. Instead, James stole the ball and fed me for a sweet breakaway goal that curled under the goalie's hand to the near post. We won 3-0, our first shutout of the year.
But the real star of the game was Elise, who took a soccer ball in the face, crunching her old sunglasses against her nose and causing a little cut. She also got a bruise from the ball. She looked pretty fierce after the game, maybe even tougher than Carlos after his cut the game prior!
First Bush was Hitler, now Obama is Hitler. Let’s clear something up right now. All U.S. Presidents are gonna have some bad ideas, regardless of which political party they’re in, but until they decided to kill 6,000,000+ people for having “inferior genes” let’s hold off on the name calling.
