Travelers Beware: UK issues terrorism warning for British Antarctic Territory

Just when you thought it was safe to revisit the subject of Antarctica, or perhaps, even thought it was the one safe place on Earth to vacation – perhaps lounge on the shore and throw in your fishing line, or have a nice leisurely ski vacation, or maybe just to sit by the fire, enjoying a good book and a brandy and cigar – the place seems to defy sense. It refuses to go away or walk quietly off the stage. Just when you think the curtain has gone down on all the high strangeness there, strangeness struts onstage again.

While you’re contemplating all that, consider this article from RT:

Russia, US remove potential ‘dirty bomb’ parts from Antarctica

That’s right… those reactors down there could be snatched up by terrorists posing as tourists… or… perhaps someone else left “dirty bomb parts” down there…

Marijuana Spot Index Price Rose to $1,623 a Pound Last Week

For the week ended Friday, May 19, 2017, the spot price index for a pound of cannabis rose 2.8% from $1,579 a pound to $1,623. According to the analysts at Cannabis Benchmarks, the simple average price for a gram rose 29 cents to $4.32.

The futures price for the near-month (June) was unchanged at $1,680. For the month of July, the forward price remained unchanged at $1,600. The six-month forward price (November) was also unchanged at $1,365.

About two-thirds of the past week’s transactions occurred in a range of $1,168 to $2,753 per pound.

The Cannabis Benchmark analysts commented on the past week’s price increase:

“The U.S. Spot Index this week saw its first upward movement in nearly two months, rising almost 3% to settle at $1,623 per pound. A drop in volume-weighted average rates for outdoor flower – which this week was observed to make up less than one-fifth of all documented weight moved – was offset by gains in pricing for both indoor and greenhouse-grown product. Warehouse flower accounted for almost half of the observed volume traded and rose to slightly exceed the $1,900 per pound threshold, off $90 from the current year-to-date high of $1,992.”

Indoor flower prices ranged from $999 to $6,400 per pound, with the median price at $2,200. Greenhouse flower prices ranged from $1,000 to $3,150 per pound, and the median price was $1,305. Outdoor flower prices ranged from $700 to $2,300 per pound; the median price was $1,200.

Alternative Outtake On Trump’s Visit To Saudi Arabia Last Week

Poverty Pimp ‘en, Race Bait ‘en Trump Conspiracy Theorist Maxine Waters Held Over $200,000 in Russia-Linked Funds Herself

California Democrat Representative Maxine Waters held $200,000 in Russia-linked retirement accounts in 2015, even while she hypocritically calls for President Donald J. Trump’s impeachment over his financial connections to Russia, according to her most recently available House of Representatives disclosure documents.

Waters’s cash-grabbing shamelessness has never known bounds. In 2012, she barely squeaked through a three-year House Ethics Committee investigation after abusing her position to funnel $12 million in bailout money to her husband’s bank.

Her Russian investments will surprise no one in her district, where impromptu signs declaring the congresswoman a “poverty pimp” and a race baiter have been popping up for years.

Waters’ 2015 disclosure statement details her family’s investments in BlackRock’s Russia-connected Global Allocation and Balanced funds.

2015 SEC filings for both funds advise of their involvement in Russian precious metals and securities:

“A Fund may invest in the equity securities of companies that explore for, extract, process or deal in precious metals (e.g., gold, silver and platinum), and in asset-based securities indexed to the value of such metals. … The major producers of gold include the Republic of South Africa, Russia, Canada, the United States, Brazil and Australia. … A Fund may invest a portion of its assets in securities issued by companies located in Russia.”

In the midst of a March meltdown comparing the Trump administration, the Ku Klux Klan and Russia, Waters told her Twitter followers to, “Follow the money.”

Weiner Pleads Guilty To Child Sexting Crime – Abedin Files for Divorce – Hillary files for Arkancide

Perpetual pervert, and disgraced former Democrat congressman, Anthony Weiner, turned himself in to the FBI, pleaded guilty in federal court this morning to a single count of transferring obscene material to a minor.

Later in the afternoon, a court official confirmed his wife Huma Abedin had filed for divorce after seven years of marriage. The divorce is uncontested. Weiner, 52, agreed to surrender his iPhone as part of the plea agreement, and he must register as a sex offender. Weiner also apologized to the teenage girl.

NEW YORK – Weiner agreed Friday not to appeal any sentence between 21 and 27 months in prison.

During the hearing, the Democratic former congressman apologized through tears to the 15-year-old girl with whom he exchanged sexually explicit texts, saying, “I accept full responsibility for my conduct. I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse. I knew this was as morally wrong as it was unlawful.”

“These destructive impulses brought great devastation to my family and friends, and destroyed my life’s dream of public service,” he continued. “I am committed to making amends to all those I have harmed.”

Weiner was already in federal custody ahead of the hearing.

The judge told him he would have to register as a sex offender.

The FBI began investigating him in September after the North Carolina girl told a tabloid news site that she and the disgraced former politician had exchanged lewd messages for several months. She also accused him of asking her to undress on camera. (more)
