Eagle Country

Big adults hunt my beach almost every day this time of year, the stiff winds out of the south hit the bluff behind the condo and create updrafts and the eagles and seagulls both just soar back and forth along the edge of the updraft, looking at the beach and water for snacks.

That one hurt

Aussie girl missed the landing in halfpipe, pitched face-forward in a fall and landed face-first in ice … broken nose at least, probably concussed. The defending men’s gold medalist is out with a similar fall and major concussion.

It’s Not Just Our Corporations

Bastards.

The French dairy group at the centre of a baby milk scandal, Lactalis, has admitted some of its products may have been tainted over more than a decade.

Millions of boxes of powdered milk have been recalled worldwide following a salmonella outbreak last year.

Researchers say that the exact same strain of salmonella was responsible for another outbreak in 2005.

The company said it was possible other babies could have been affected by Lactalis products since then.
