Frequently referred to as Rasberry crazy ants, these ants recently have been given the official common name “Tawny crazy ants. The Argentine ant invaded through the port of New Orleans in about 1891. In 1918 the black imported fire ant showed up in Mobile, Ala. Then in the 1930s, the red imported fire ant arrived in the U.S. and began displacing the black fire ant and the Argentine ants, the biggest deal is the displacement of the fire ant, which is the 300 pound gorilla in Texas ecosystems these days,” said LeBrun. “The whole system has changed around fire ants. Things that can’t tolerate fire ants are gone. Many that can have flourished. New things have come in. Now we are going to go through and whack the fire ants and put something in its place that has a very different biology. There are going to be a lot of changes that come from that. remains unknown, including their potential range. So far, most of the colonies are in fairly wet environments with mild winters, near the coast, so it may be the case that they can’t thrive in drier or colder climates, and that fire ants will remain dominant in those areas. videos on YouTube of people sweeping out dustpans full of these ants from their bathroom. You have to call pest control operators every three or four months just to keep the infestation under control. It’s very expensive utex/

Go figure-Or do they reveal a government so big and sprawling that inevitably no President can micromanage every misjudgment and misstep that will be blown into scandal by hysterical Republicans. They don't reveal anything about Obama's vision or managerial skill wp/dilemma for journalists this week: How should you cover a series of proto-scandals with seemingly little in common? What links these events together, of course, is a new political reality: the administration is embattled by scandal for the first time since President Obama took office. Given the political circumstances, that pattern appears likely to continue. So what should reporters do? Many are covering the new “narrative” of Obama’s administration, which is reflective of the way that political and media elites coordinate on interpretations of events as scandalous. As I argue in my academic research, media scandals are a “co-production” of the opposition party and the press. When both groups portray an event like the IRS allegations as a scandal, it often generates strong perceptions of wrongdoing among elites in other words, a narrative of misconduct, Others, like the Post’s Ezra Klein, have noted the contradiction between the narrative of scandal and the lack of evidence of high level misconduct. The strength of evidence matters, of course, but it does not solely determine what does or does not become a media scandal; these are political events, not courtroom trials. Reporters could start by taking more responsibility for their role in creating and sustaining the media narratives, even as they acknowledge the role and importance of elite perceptions, reporters can do more to help readers separate the political event from the underlying facts. It’s much easier to pontificate about the “narrative” or engage in armchair punditry about scandal response tactics-kudos to Professor Nyhan for identifying Greg Sargent as a liberal writer. True dat. But how in the world did Ezra Klein (he of JournoList fame) get off without his liberal slant being noted?-allegations? Who says- you? The hypocritical ourage from the right & the media's deliberately ignoring it is laughable if it weren't so sad. Susan Collins said it was "chilling" that the IRS was targeting organizations, & SHE actally signed a letter to IRS in 2004 requesting it do just that to the NAACP, it's truly difficult to take the right seriously when they complain about Obama's administration & all that has happened while he serves his SECOND term when they themselves did the EXACT (not similar) same thing. Seems the ears with those finger plugs are on the heads of the right-DOJ had a subpoena, signed by a federal judge, for phone records (just the numbers) to find a leak in the government. AP wasn't the target, it was a conduit for information. The 1st Amendment was never in danger, but an MI-6 agent was. The leak was the problem & AP should have been cooperative. Perhaps you could follow your own advice and reserve judgment-"Republicans Agree to Stop Using Word “Scandal” in Every Sentence If Obama Resigns newyorker-GOP narrative, Obama could be an incompetent and ineffective master plotter who had managed to move us almost all the way to a complete government takeover of everything-reveal a president who is weak and unable to control the government he presides over- AP: Boo-hoo. The poor, poor, put upon press! helped out a secret agent, and put the agent, and his family in danger! No big deal! bama should also push for a very strong shield law, that protects classified information, and secret agents from big mouths in the media who abuse their right to freedom of speech. There should be a law stating that the press must immediately report any leaks of classified information that they receive, instead of sitting on the information so that they can stir up trouble, later. Despite the whining from the media- libs are so smart, of course Obama can't be both a ineffective leader and a tyrant. I don't know how us conservatives could have been so silly. So I defer to you and your vast brain power... which one is he?-conservatives are the Hindenburg of intellect. Oh, the stupidty-cons are sooo loony. Tyrant? You should go to NK and see what tyranny is REALLY about. Then maybe you'd ST FU-Conservatives have no trouble with this conundrum because they live in a state of cognitive dissonance all the time.

Do they have the right to rule all the major institutions in USA as if they are not a political group. So are they not a political group actively controlling the political structure of the U.S Government and dictating its foreign and domestic policy to some degree as only the politicians and Government officials are meant to? Is that not a type of defacto Government? Hell they print America's money and control its economy from the Federal Reserve Bank.

They constantly lie to and deceive the American people. Their outrage on Benghazi is feigned. Has anyone asked why the building was attacked? The US has actively been funding and supplying arms to various groups in Libya. The US played their part in overthrowing the Qaddafi regime - as with Egypt, the country has fallen into disarray with militias exerting control. Many of these militias are opposed to what they see as a US-backed regime. Common sense tells us that an attack was always plausible. Obama knows this. So do the Republicans. They both deceive the US populace routinely on the subject, the only difference here is that for political reasons, the Reps decided to call out the Democrats on Benghazi. Clearly they were counting on a poorly-informed public actually taking such a debate seriously. it has worked. In part because Republicans will lap up anything to discredit Obama - no matter how self-contradictory and deluded. chiefly because of the Democrats inability to show just how ludicrous the whole debate is, Did Republicans demanding hearings into the Iraq War?-substituting the word "negro" anytime words like "Patriot," "Tea Party," or "conservative" appear and substituting the word "God's chosen White Man" wherever "liberal" appears?

By directly stimulating affected areas of the central nervous system, scalp acupuncture has showed more effective results compared to other acupuncture techniques. Our studies showed that 87 percent of the patients had instant improvements after only one scalp acupuncture treatment. The study also demonstrated that scalp acupuncture treatment for MS is accessible, less expensive, safer, more effective, and caused fewer side effects. Scalp acupuncture not only benefits patients with MS, but also significantly helps us to better understand the mechanisms that cause the condition. It may guide us to the discovery of new effective treatments and hopefully to a cure for this disease in the future./jfk 50 yrs ago warren commision commie sympathizer oswald cia report still classified no pictures in cuban or mexico embassies, conspiracy radio/astroidphobe buzz aldrin reems of information, mars mission tybor sifi gig, alberto correctly assumes, if during the bush years, any liberal organization was targeted, could be trouble for the gop baggers, jaun sez issa is cable king, dr krauthammer retouches all faux snooze talk points, on geraldo/ wkok humping house flip/gordon and gina irs culture of rotteness using liz apolitical keywords, spike in dui's, hard to dispell what children learn in school, indisputable, undefencable lingering pending investigations with a hugh amout of unknowns (rumsfieldesq), undermining administration successes. aaa electric cars useful, sez families will need an extra car for vacations, superstorm coaster, wsjpc /sf finance manipulation, on crosscurrents/
