Anti-Israel College Professor Stands By Call for ‘Jihad’

A Kent State University history professor is standing by his call for “jihad” and statement that Israel is “a regime that is the spiritual heir to Nazism.”

In an “open letter” to “academic friends of Israel,” professor Julio Pino accused the pro-Israel academic community of being “directly responsible for the murder of more than 1,400 Palestinian children, women and elderly civilians.”

In a statement that quotes former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and compares the academics to alleged Nazi collaborator and philosopher Martin Heidegger, Pino writes:
Your names are scrawled on every bullet fired, bomb dropped, body buried and burnt forehead in Gaza. May your names become a curse word on the lips of every justice-loving person on earth, along with “Obama” and “Netanyahu.”

Obamas Go on 12-Day Martha's Vineyard Vacation Amid Global Crises

Amid an international ebola health emergency, U.S. airstrikes in Iraq, and the illegal immigration crisis surging on the southern border, President Barack Obama leaves on Saturday for a lavish Martha's Vineyard twelve day vacation at the 8,100-square foot mansion of Democratic Party donor Joanne Hubschman.

The timing of Obama's swank vacation has even the president's supporters worried.

"Even some of Obama's most ardent supporters are questioning the wisdom of this summer's sojourn as war roils Gaza and a wave of families and children are crossing the southwestern US border illegally," reports the Boston Globe.


Texas Principal Fired For Telling Students To Speak English

The Texas principal who was placed on administrative leave and then fired for telling Hispanic students at her middle school that they should speak English in the classroom can now speak freely — the gag order has expired — and says that her request only mirrored what’s written in state law.

Amy Lacey was placed on administrative leave in 2013 after she asked via an intercom announcement that Hempstead Middle School students should speak English in the classroom. She shortly after learned that the school board declined to renew her contract and would be firing her.

Meanwhile, reports swirled that Ms. Lacey had banned Spanish from the school campus, rocking national headlines.

Football Fans Are Going To Hate The NFL's New On-Field Advertising

If you watched Thursday night's Ravens vs. 49ers preseason football game, you probably noticed the awful on-field advertising any time either team got in the end zone.

According to BizJournals , Toyota is now the "exclusive auto partner" of the Niners as part of a multimillion dollar deal. Part of the agreement is that Toyota will sponsor the red zone — the area between the 20-yard line and the end zone — at San Francisco's brand new Levi's Stadium, meaning a massive, distracting graphic will appear on the screen any time a team reaches that section of the field.

Luckily, Toyota's red-zone advertising will show up only on the local, KPIX broadcast of preseason games; it is not a national deal. Still, you have to imagine that this is a glimpse of the future, and one that NFL fans aren't going to be particularly pleased about.


Two Old Friends

Bob and Fred, two friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems.

One day Bob didn't show up. Fred didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something..
But after Bob hadn't shown up for a week or so, Fred really got worried. 

A month had passed, and Fred figured he had seen the last of Bob, but one day, Fred approached the park and--lo and behold!--there sat Bob!

'For crying out loud Bob, what in the world happened to you?'

Bob replied, 'I have been in jail.'

'Jail!' cried Fred. What in the world for?'

'Well,' Bob said, 'you know Sue, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?'

'Yeah,' said Fred, 'I remember her. What about her?

'Well,  the little gold-digging witch figured I was rich and she filed rape charges against me; and,

at 80 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pleaded 'guilty'.

'The judge gave me 30 days for perjury.'

Ocean Injuries Stretch Resort Emergency Responders Thin

OCEAN CITY — In the wake of one of the busiest days of the summer for beach- and surf-related injuries, Ocean City’s first responders found themselves stretched to the limit on Tuesday, forcing them to reach out to their emergency services partners for potential assistance.

On Tuesday, the Ocean City Beach Patrol and the city’s team of firefighter/paramedics were extremely busy with an exceptionally dangerous shore break and associated rip currents causing multiple neck and back injuries including a handful of victims that had to be taken to area hospitals via helicopter. While the weather was clear and warm and the ocean inviting for the thousands of visitors that crammed into the resort for one of the busiest weeks of the summer, the remnants of Tropical Storm Bertha, which was passing offshore, caused major shore break and rip currents.

The heavy wave action on the beach caused huge pools of water behind the crest of the beach at the water’s edge. In many places along the beach, the conditions created a knee-deep or shallower wading pool of sorts for beachgoers to enjoy. In several places, however, the trapped water broke through the crest of the beach and created a river of water rushing back toward the ocean, creating dangerous rip currents.


Texas Taxpayers Will Shell Out Approx. $45M to Educate Foreign Minors

HOUSTON, Texas -- As Central American illegal immigrants continue to pour across the U.S.-Mexico border, federal agents are releasing tens of thousands of them onto U.S. soil. Consequently, public schools around the nation must gear up to accommodate undocumented children. In Texas alone, around 4,800 foreign minors have been set free--assuming these minors are not immediately deported, they will be expected to enter the public school system come fall.

Many Texans have expressed concern over the cost these minors will force onto taxpayers. Due to language barriers, it will likely be more expensive to educate the immigrant children than it is to educate U.S. students.

Texas Education Agency General Counsel David Anderson reportedly said at a committee hearing, "Right now, the state pays about $7,900 per student to districts. These [foreign children] would come with certain needs, like free or reduced lunch qualification as well as bilingual or special needs, so we estimate about $9,500 per student to be paid to the districts for those students."

Assuming all 4,800 released foreign minors enter the public school system, Texas will shell out about $45.6 million to educate these children.


ISIS threatens America: 'We will raise the flag of Allah in the White House'

In a video posted Thursday, ISIS, the terror group also known as the Islamic State, threatened to attack the United States and capture the White House, the Daily Caller reported.

“I say to America that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” spokesman Abu Mosa told VICE Media in a video interview. “Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq.”

Mosa, however, wasn't finished: "We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House,” he added.


Inspectors General: Watchdog Investigations Stymied by Federal Agencies

Forty-seven Inspectors General sign letter blasting obstruction by ‘most transparent administration in history’

At least three government agencies obstructed independent investigations into alleged wrongdoing, according to a letter sent to congressional oversight leaders Tuesday by 47 independent federal watchdogs.

The 47 Inspectors General (IG) said the Justice Department, the Peace Corps, and the Chemical Safety Board withheld information from their offices, citing various privileges.

“We have learned that the Inspectors General for the Peace Corps, the Environmental Protection Agency (in his role as Inspector General for the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board) and the Department of Justice have recently faced restrictions on their access to certain records available to their agencies that were needed to perform their oversight work in critical areas,” the letter said. “These restrictive readings of the IG Act represent potentially serious challenges to the authority of every Inspector General and our ability to conduct our work thoroughly, independently, and in a timely manner.”


Bertha Brings Tidal Pools, Shore Break To Resort

OCEAN CITY – The passing of Tropical Storm Bertha created the tidal pools on the resort’s beaches on Tuesday, according to the city engineer.

Tuesday’s heavy shore break and the formation of tidal pools on Ocean City’s beaches led many on The Dispatch’s Facebook page blame beach replenishment for the water’s activity while others thought it was due to Tropical Bertha approaching off-shore.

“It is clearly the large swells that we are getting from Bertha. Tidal pools are not an unusual occurrence. We get them all the time. We see them on Assateague where they don’t do beach replenishment, so clearly it is the swells from Bertha,” City Engineer Terry McGean said on Wednesday. “The beach patrol has been getting the word out with these wave conditions that we are having problems with rip currents, so I hope everybody is taking that seriously.”


6 foods that make you look older

There's a reason why your skin feels a little off after a series of holiday parties, BBQs, or mojito-filled beach days: "What you eat affects your skin—for better or worse," said Dr. Ariel Ostad, fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. While a few indulgences won't age you overnight, a continuously poor diet can accelerate the aging process of your skin (and teeth) over time. Here, 6 foods to consume in moderation in order to look as young as you feel.


Sugar overload may kick-start a process called glycation. The theory: When you eat more sugar than your cells can process, the excess sugar molecules combine with proteins, creating "advanced glycation end products" (appropriately referred to as "AGES"), explained Ostad. Ultimately, AGES may damage your skin's collagen (the protein that keeps skin firm and youthful).

Unsurprisingly, too much sweet stuff is also bad for your smile.

"Sugar sticks to your teeth, encouraging bacteria, decay, and discoloration," said Brian Kantor, a cosmetic dentist who practices in New York City. If you treat yourself to something sweet, swish water around your mouth afterward to remove any buildup.

Meet The Maryland Judge Who Could Be A '16 First Lady Contender

With his recent trips to Iowa and New Hampshire and meetings with top Democratic donors, all signs indicate Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will challenge Hillary Clinton for the party’s presidential nomination in 2016.

Catherine O’Malley responded to questions about her possible future as the nation’s first lady with the practiced grace of a politician’s wife.

“I'm not sure what's going to happen in the future,” she said. “But I'm hoping that whatever does happen I'll be able to adjust and hopefully do as well as I did here.”


Supermoon Over Miami This Weekend To Be Biggest & Brightest

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – South Florida is in for a celestial treat this weekend when the second of three supermoons this summer will be visible.

The full moon on August 10th isn’t like any other full moon we’ve seen this year. This is a “Supermoon,” the closest and largest full moon in 2014.

When the moon is full as it makes its closest pass to Earth, it becomes a “Supermoon,” and will be up to 31,000 miles closer to Earth than other full moons this year.


Major Route 50 Bridge Fix To Wait Till After Summer

OCEAN CITY — Long term repairs to the failing part on the draw span of the Route 50 Bridge will take place this fall or early winter, according to State Highway Administration (SHA) officials, although no firm timetable or the scope of the potential interruptions to traffic both on the bridge and in the water have been determined.

In the wake of the July 26 failure of the Route 50 Bridge, which was stuck in the open position for about five hours at the peak time on a peak Saturday, SHA engineers determined the failure was caused by a cracked mount on the draw span’s drive shaft. The cracked mount was temporarily repaired that night and into the next morning in order to render the drawbridge serviceable and SHA officials remain confident the temporary fix will operate properly until large, long-term repairs are made.

SHA and its private sector engineering firm that maintains the bridge determined the failed mount and three others on each corner of the drawbridge would ultimately need to be replaced. Replacing and repairing the four drive shaft mounts will likely take several hours, perhaps even overnight, leaving SHA officials with a decision to make on the timing.


‘Michelle Obama Has Fone Roo Far': Students Revolt Over Vending Machines


The Christian Science Monitor notes that, “as teachers get ready for the new school year … they are probably noticing a wholesale change in the snacks they can get in their school’s vending machines. And they probably aren’t that happy about it.”

Students aren’t happy about it either. The full implications of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Schools Act are being felt this year, and students and others are taking to Twitter to voice their opposition.

Washington Pot Sales Reach $3.8M In 1st Month

SEATTLE — During the first month of legal marijuana sales in Washington state, stores sold just under $3.8 million, which is expected to bring in more than $1 million in state taxes, the state reported on Friday.

Although licenses have been issued for about 40 stores, only 18 were selling pot in July, and 16 of them have reported sales so far in August.

“It’s off to a healthy start, considering that the system isn’t fully up and running yet,” said Brian Smith, a spokesman for the Washington Liquor Control Board.


Tiger Shark Surfaced Twice In Back Bays Last Week

OCEAN CITY — The satellite tracker on a 13-foot, 1,000-pound tiger shark pinged twice in the span of less than an hour in the Isle of Wight Bay last Friday, causing quite a stir among residents and visitors, but early this week the shark had been detected swimming in the open ocean off the coast of New Jersey.

In May, OCEARCH, a research organization that tracks the movements of big sharks all over the world, tagged the shark off the coast of South Carolina. The shark, named “Septima” in honor of civil rights activist and South Carolina native Septima Poinsette Clark, was fitted with a transmitter that sends signals to a satellite when its dorsal fin breaks the surface.

Septima has been tracked up and down the coast from North Carolina to New Jersey. Since she was tagged in May, Septima has traveled nearly 3,400 miles along the mid-Atlantic region.


63K Illegal Immigrant Youths Captured At Border In Past 9 Months

The Department of Homeland Security said Thursday that roughly 63,000 illegal immigrant youths were captured along the Southwest border within the last nine months.

The number of lone children spiked in May and June, but DHS said that numbers have fallen off since last month.

“We have surged resources and put in place an aggressive campaign to counter the rise of illegal migration into the Rio Grande Valley. We have dramatically reduced the removal time for many unaccompanied adults from about 33 to four days,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement, the Los Angeles Times reported.

As "Housing Recovery" Fizzles A New Scheme Emerges: Boost FICO Scores By Changing The Definition

Now that the the fourth dead cat bounce  in US housing since the Lehman crisis is rapidly fading, and laundered Chinese "hot money" transfers into US luxury real estate no longer provides a firm base  to the ultra-luxury segment, the US government is scrambling to find ways to boost that all important - and missing - aspect of any US recovery: the housing market. This is further amplified by the recent admission by the Fed that it is in fact encouraging asset bubbles, not only in stocks but certainly in all assets, such as houses. Well, the government may have just stumbled on the solution to kick the can yet again and force yet another credit-driven housing bubble, a solution so simple we are shocked some bureaucrat didn't think of it earlier: changing the definition of the all important FICO score, the most important number at the base of every mortgage application.

Walmart Shopper Killed by Cops After Picking Up BB Gun

Innocent bystander also dies following incident

A Walmart shopper was shot and killed by police earlier this week after being spotted wielding one of the store’s products.

An innocent bystander who tried to flee after hearing police gunfire ring out also died after allegedly suffering a heart attack.

It all went down on Tuesday night at the Walmart in Beavercreek, Ohio, after a witness reported 22-year-old Fairfield resident John Crawford picking up a BB gun (sold at the store) featuring military style characteristics, which the witness described to police as a “rifle type weapon.”


The Only Occasions Women Need Shoes For In Nine West’s World: Finding A Husband, Taking Kids To School

Good news, women of the world! The only occasions you’re going to have in your life to buy shoes boil down to finding your first husband and taking the kids to school. At least, according to Nine West’s “Shoe Occasions” category, which includes two lonely entries: “Starter Husband Hunting” and “First Day of Kindergarten.”

Because everyone knows that when a woman is pregnant she’s barefoot, and apparently will have no occasion to shod her feet after catching that lucky fella and crying buckets of motherly tears when the young ones go to school, right?

But what about shoes for delivering the baby, asks Buzzfeed’s Sapna Maheshwari on Twitter? Or shoes to accompany said starter husband to the Big Dinner At The Boss’ House Where It’s Very Important We Make A Good Impression?

Not even going to ask about shoes for a woman to wear when she hears there are only two important shoe occasions in life and snagging your first job/signing an important client/being a normal person aren’t included.

If You Like Your Exemption, Keep It: 90% Of Uninsured Won't Pay Obamacare Penalties

No insurance, no penalty appears to be Obamacare's new meme as The Wall Street Journal reports almost 90% of the nation's 30 million uninsured won't pay a penalty in 2016 because of a growing batch of exemptions to the health-coverage requirement. In the interests of socialism, the Obama administration has provided 14 ways people can avoid the fine (on top of exemptions carved out under the 2010 law for groups including illegal immigrants, members of Native American tribes and certain religious sects). The list of exemptions runs deep but one exemption for people who "experienced another hardship obtaining health insurance" (requiring documentation if possible but not requiring it) has been notably criticized as too broad. The exemptions are worrying insurers, as they could make it easier for younger, healthier people to forgo coverage, leaving the pools overly filled with old people or those with health problems. That, in turn, could cause premiums to rise.

Md. Comptroller To Collect Signatures In Bid To Push Back School Starting Date

Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot, who has earned a reputation as an agitator during his time in office, plans to launch a petition drive next week to persuade lawmakers to embrace a pet cause of his: delaying the opening of public schools until after Labor Day.

Franchot (D) is planning an event Thursday on the boardwalk of Ocean City, one of the state’s top tourism destinations, to kick off a “Let Summer Be Summer” campaign. His aim: collecting 10,000 signatures from Maryland citizens before the General Assembly reconvenes in January.

The event coincides with an annual week-long conference of county leaders from across Maryland, and Franchot plans to hand out flying discs and sand buckets adorned with the campaign logo at the conference site.


The "Recovery" In One Chart: When Americans Can't Even Afford To Buy McDonalds For 9 Months In A Row

There is endless propaganda... and then there are McDonalds sales.

It is the latter that is by far the best indicator of how the US economy is progressing when stripped of all the bullshit seasonal adjustments, rhetoric and lies from the administration which focus on what is a glowing recovery, for the 1%. As for everyone else, they can't even afford a dollar meal.

The proof? McDonalds same store sales for the last month, July, cratered by 2.5%, far worse than the 1.1% expected driven by a 7.3% collapse in Asian sales, but the number we focus on, US comp store sales, was a devastating 3.2%, on par with the worst decline in history, and the 9th consecutive month in which McDonalds has not posted an increase in US same store sales.

Here is your recovery:


History of Railroading in Salisbury

The first attempt at putting a railroad on the Eastern Shore was when the Eastern Shore Railroad obtained a charter in 1836. They even had money printed and the few remaining examples of this currency are extremely rare today, though some are known to exist. The Panic of 1837 scuttled the plans for the building of the railroad until the economy improved.

The Delaware Railroad had reached Delmar by 1859, and the Eastern Shore Railroad brought the line to Salisbury, but the outbreak of the Civil War delayed extending the line past Salisbury until after the war ended. When the war ended, the Eastern Shore Railroad renewed their original plans and ran track to Princess Anne and then on to Somers Cove, which was then renamed Crisfield in honor of the president of the railroad, John W. Crisfield.

After several profitable years, and the extension of the line to Pocomoke, the Eastern Shore Railroad failed and its lines were taken over by the New York, Philadelphia and Norfolk Railroad. By 1884, the NYP & N had extended the line down the Peninsula to Cape Charles. Its depot in Salisbury was located on the west side of the tracks between Isabella and Williams streets.

Another venture, the Wicomico and Pocomoke Railroad had incorporated in 1864 and completed its first line in 1868. The first terminals were at Salisbury and Berlin but eventually continued on to Ocean City. This company was eventually sold in 1888 to the Baltimore and Eastern Shore Railroad. Then the Baltimore and Eastern Shore Railroad failed financially and their assets were sold at public auction on August 29, 1894. The Baltimore, Chesapeake and Atlantic was formed by new backers who were closely allied with the Pennsylvania Railroad which acquired a controlling interest in 1902. They had a depot in Salisbury separate from the north-south line of the New York, Philadelphia and Norfolk. It was located near where the tracks cross N. Division St.

There were two other stops in Salisbury which are now just a faint memory. One was Fulton Station which was located just north of Rt. 50 on the east side of Mill St.. This was used mainly for the import of large purchases by the leading wholesale dealers in the area. The other was Byrd Siding which was located at the far end of W. Main St. where it connects with Nanticoke Road. This was used mainly for shipping the large quantities of produce grown locally.

As the use of the railroad grew, a new station was erected in 1914 to replace the two smaller ones. This was named Union Station and the first ticket agent was Rollie W. Hastings. He also sold the last ticket when the Pennsylvania Railroad discontinued passenger service in 1958. He also served Salisbury as mayor from 1950-58.

The structure that was Union Station is still standing and is currently owned by brothers Tom and John Knorr who also own The Red Roost in Clara, Boonie’s in Tyaskin and Sobo’s on South Division Street in Salisbury. They planned to restore and put a brew pub in the former Union Station until the impact fees from the city of Salisbury made the project unrealistic.

Salisbury Accepts Bike Route Grant

SALISBURY — A new bike route between downtown Salisbury and Salisbury University is imminent with the City Council accepting a $32,440 grant this week for the installation of pavement markings and signage on Riverside Drive and South Boulevard.

The bike routes are just a piece of the puzzle however, and the council also wishes to launch a public awareness campaign aimed at promoting shared awareness of roads by motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

The $32,440 grant is coming in from the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) Bikeways program. It will be used to create a well-marked bike lane along 1.18 miles of Riverside Drive and .37 miles of South Boulevard, connecting downtown and the university. It will include markings for dedicated bike lanes and shared bicycle/vehicle lanes as well as route signage.
