    Rogen and Franco pulled out of all media appearances Tuesday, canceling a Buzzfeed Q&A and Rogen's planned guest spot Thursday on "Late Night With Seth Meyers." The two stars had just appeared Monday on "Good Morning America" and Rogen guested on "The Colbert Report." A representative for Rogen said he had no comment. A spokeswoman for Franco didn't respond to queries Tuesday.

    Interesting. The "stars" of this "humorous" assassination movie have gone into hiding but the studio still expects the foolish public to pay to see this movie. The studio needs to recoup it's expenses and would not mind another international incident if it would increase sales. But don't expect the stars to come out of hiding.

    Heda_Madness - So some of you think that the global warming is a myth? Fair enough, you're entitled to your opinion.

    Yes, the global warming, as promoted by the IPCC and UN, is a myth. The IPCC has been trying to prove their myth for 25 years but the actual global temp just won't cooperate. Global temps haven't been increasing for over a decade. CO2 levels are up but the global temp isn't.

    Fossil fuels can be made cleaner.

    Pandabelle - Isn't their Dear Leader still on the run from an international arrest warrant?

    Why should anybody believe they will respect the laws of Japan now when they have shown such little regard previously?

    Given their past history of repeated acts of violence, there is no reason to believe that the eco-terrorist SS will respect the laws of Japan, or any other country. And yes, Watson is still on the run from an international arrest warrant. Rumor has it that Watson has suffered a stroke and will no longer be making public statements.

    Wilson, as well as the rest of the Ferguson police, have been receiving daily death threats from the lynch mob protestors. If Wilson returned to active police duty, one of these so-called peaceful protestors would have placed a fake call for assistance and murdered Wilson when he responded to the scene. It wasn't safe for Wilson to return to police work.

    It's known that Brown had robbed a store minutes before Brown attacked Wilson. Wilson had been sitting inside his police vehicle when Brown began the assault. Brown received his 1st gunshot wound while Brown's right arm was inside the police vehicle. Brown then chose to run away, stop, turn around to face Wilson, and then began to move towards Wilson. Eyewitness reports vary but forensic evidence prove that Brown was first shot while Brown was reaching into the police vehicle. Brown was shot 6 more times in his front torso and head while Brown was charging at Wilson.

    Wilson fired until he ended the threat that Brown created.

    Pushing back on concerns the task force would be all talk and no action, Obama said this situation was different because he was personally invested in ensuring results.

    This situation was different????? It sounds as if Obama is admitting that his past issues were all talk and little, or no, action.

    Joji Morishita said the world’s anti-whaling nations should compromise and recognize that Japan is trying to meet them halfway after a ruling by the International Court of Justice banning the hunt.

    This is not a direct quote but the interpretation of the writer. The ICJ did not ban the whale hunt.

    “Hopefully this research plan would trigger or send some message (to international opponents) because we have accepted the ICJ judgement in our research plan,” Morishita told journalists.

    This is a quote from Morishita where he's talking about accepting the ICJ judgment. Japan has submitted a new plan to the IWC.

    Time will tell if Obama will actually try to work with the opposition party. Good government is based on the ability to compromise. U.S. Senators and U.S. Congressmen will represent their constituents, who have wide ranging, individual concerns. The Congress will send bills to the President and the President will either sign them or he won't. The question is, will there be two more years of stalemate or two years of compromise?

    Frungy - "On hold" means "never accept". "On hold" could be 1 day or it could be 10 years, and there's no incentive for the big power companies to let them in, because it would mean less profit.

    Green energy is a commercial venture. You seem to be confusing "green" with "commie". You're in error.

    No, "on hold" does not mean "never accept". That is your opinion, not mine.

    And no, I'm not confusing "green" with "commie". Again, that is your opinion, and not mine. You appear to have made the error.

    But Kyushu Electric Power Co, the utility to which he must sell his electricity, has recently placed on hold all new applications for getting on its grid. Four other utilities have made the same announcement and two more announced partial restrictions.

    The utilities say they can’t accommodate the flood of newcomers to the green energy business, throwing in doubt the future of Japan’s up-to-now aggressive strategy on renewable energy. Another challenge is that supplies of power from sources such as solar are not reliable enough or easily stored.

    It seems that the power company has only placed new applications on hold. They can't accommodate the flood of newcomers. The power company didn't say they would never accept the so-called green energy suppliers.

    It seems the so-called green energy suppliers are panicking that their multi yen investments aren't making a profit yet.

    MarkG - Maybe after the mid term elections US may join. They need those minority votes.

    The Ebola Czar must be working hard to devise an expert plan. That must be why we the public don't see him.

    Obama brought in political spin doctor, Ron Klain, to be the eboal czar. Klain had no medical experience but that's not what the Obama administration needs at this time. The Obama administration needed someone who could keep the media from noticing that the Canadian Health Minister Rona Ambrose said in a statement the “number one priority is to protect Canadians” and Canadian Immigration Minister Jason Alexander said the government would act in the “best interests of Canadians.”

    Imagine that, a government official who is actually interested in the safety and welfare of it's citizens instead making a public relations specialist the ebola czar.

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest rejected suggestions that the policies employed by the Pentagon and states that are stricter than guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conveys a mixed message to the American public.

    White House spokes model Josh Earnest seems to be confused about just how confusing the White House actions have been to the public. U.S. troops can be isolated because they were in an area that had ebola but a arrogant nurse who had direct contact with ebola patients AND an elevated temperature reading can't be?

    cleo - But if it were a gun, not a virus, it would be her gawd-gibbun right to do whatever she pleased?

    Interesting that it seems all the people who defend unrestricted access to guns as a 'right' are quick to strip this nurse of her 'rights'.

    Is this an attempt to strawman, or even derail the discussion of ebola quarantines or quarantines in general?

    “It is not an overstatement to say that a colossal volcanic eruption would leave Japan extinct as a country,”

    It's not an OVERSTATEMENT that a COLOSSAL volcanic eruption could destroy most of the U.S.A. (Yellowstone caldera), or the Hawaiian Islands, or large portions of South America, or the ice above the Arctic Basin, or Iceland (Bardarbunga), or many other areas around the world. But it would take a colossal eruption to do so.

    Are colossal eruptions possible? Yes they are. Will such colossal eruptions actually take place? Who knows. Is there anything that mankind can do stop any volcanic eruption? No, there isn't. Should I worry about a colossal eruption taking place tomorrow, or next year, or 20 years from now? No.

    Kobe University earth sciences professor Yoshiyuki Tatsumi and associate professor Keiko Suzuki say a colossal volcanic eruption is POSSIBLE sometime in the future. Thanks for the info Tatsumi and Suzuki. Now I have an incentive to finish building my TARDIS.

    Hickox contends there’s no need for quarantine because she’s showing no symptoms. She’s also tested negative for the deadly disease, though it can take days for the virus to reach detectable levels.

    Hickox had a temperature reading of over 100 deg F (normal is considered 98.6 F). That, plus the fact that she was recently exposed to the ebola virus, triggered the need to quarantine. Blood test results can take several days (or a week?). Hickox appears to be very selfish and willing to expose others to a potentially deadly virus.

    The United States decided not to join 73 countries in supporting a price on carbon, which Congress has indicated it would reject.

    And minutes after Obama said “nobody gets a pass,” Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli insisted the world treat developing nations, including China, differently than developed nations, allowing them to release more heat-trapping pollution.

    Why is Obama pressing world leaders to follow the United States lead on this issue when Obama can't get the U.S. Congress to cooperate with his plan?

    The eco-terrorist SS brag that they have sunk 10 fishing vessels. 11 if you count the Ady Gil. They are a pro-violence organization with pro-violence supporters. Maybe the toothfish will suffer a stroke from all the worry?

    Parties including the United States are pushing for the commission to take on a bigger conservation role, given that there is actually little “legal” whaling to control.

    And then they'll try to put this to a vote and neither side will have enough votes to push their agendas thru. Same stuff, different day.

    The International Whaling Commission (IWC) gave aboriginal Greenlanders the go-ahead Monday to kill hundreds of whales.....

    It's interesting to read an article about Greenland, whales, and the IWC.

    Greenland's hunts are allowed under a special aboriginal subsistence dispensation that also applies to whale-eating communities in North America, Russia, Greenland and the Caribbean nation of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

    So, why was the man arrested? Cases like this have made the news in the past few years, falling under the aforementioned Anti-Nuisance Ordinance. The law is quite broad in its language, but seeks to protect one thing: the safety and well-being of women. The law states that it doesn’t matter what you are taking a picture of, if the woman being photographed is made to feel uncomfortable or starts feeling anxious, you are liable to be arrested. Even so much as pointing a camera in the victim’s direction without taking a picture is grounds for arrest.

    It sounds like the police will be quite busy arresting the paparazzi and sightseers for taking pictures of women in any crowd or if the women are standing alone, if the woman feels anxious or uncomfortable.
