We Had Greg Proops In Studio Today

This is Mr. "Who's Line is it Anyway", comedian Greg Proops, who came by the studio bright and early this morning. Look at how fancy he looks. He made us radio folk look pretty bad by comparison. He had to do, as he said, "Good Day Roseville." Catch him tonight (1/3) for his podcast, tomorrow (1/4), and Saturday (1/5) at the Punchline in the Howe 'Bout Arden shopping center.

Man Has Pit Bull Babysit Infant So He Can Go Drink at Bar

Father of the year? I think not. This man wanted to go to the bar and get some beers. So, he couldn't get a babysitter. He decides to leave his baby at home because the pit bull is there, so he can go drink a six pack. Needless to say, the girlfriend was quite upset and was arrested for child neglect. You think! How about "brain neglect?" The baby was only 10 months old. Wow.

Who Knew I Was Downward Dogging My Way To Hell??


Mars Hill Church pastor Mark Driscoll is known for his unconventional sermons to get the followers of his flock behind his, well, unconventional Christian sermons. As the leader of the highly successful Seattle-based mega-church, Driscoll finds his "demons" lurking about everywhere, from Avatars and bumper stickers to stay-at-home dads. His latest target – yoga!   Driscoll argues that yoga is "absolute paganism" and its practitioners are "opening to demonism." Hey!!!! Driscoll writes that there is "nothing wrong with stretching, exercising, or regulating one's stress through breath." His line of reasoning equates yoga with a "worship act to sprit beings other than the God of the Bible." Driscoll goes on to review the roots and history of various yogic practices but says that "Christians must reject yoga" although he does allow for some “yoga-like movement.” "Feel free in Christian liberty to stretch however you'd like, participate in exercise, calm your nerves through breathing, and even contemplate the Scriptures in silence. But do so in a way that does not identify with yoga and non-Christian mysticism." Really???

7 BIllion Reasons Why It Feels A Bit More Crowded On The Planert Today

The global population is expected to reach 7 billion today -- just 12 years after hitting 6 billion.
 
So, just how big is 7 billion really?
 
On the surface, it doesn't look much different than 6 billion, either in written form or numeric form. There are nine zeros in 6,000,000,000, just like there are nine zeros in 7,000,000,000. But if you counted every number in between them, it would take more than 30 years. Yes, three decades.
 
Early this year, there were only 140 people in the world who were worth $7 billion, according to Forbes magazine.
 
More ways to envision the enormousness of 7 billion:
 
-- Seven billion seconds ago, the year was 1789. That was the year George Washington was inaugurated as the first U.S. president and Congress met for the very first time.
-- If you took 7 billion steps along the Earth's equator -- at 2 feet per step -- you could walk around the world at least 106 times.
-- Suppose an average thimble holds 2 milliliters of water. Seven billion of those thimbles would fill at least five Olympic-sized swimming pools.
-- Let's say the average human is about 5 feet tall, accounting for children. If you stack those 7 billion people end to end, they would reach about 1/14th of the way to the sun -- or 27 times the distance to the moon.  
-- Seven billion ants, at an average size of 3 milligrams each, would weigh at least 23 tons (46,297 pounds).
 
 
You get the idea, right?

Recycling Bras - A Great Idea "Busting" Out Of Japan

Let’s face it. Underwear is one thing we never think of recycling, yet a new trend has started in Japan that may soon gain support (pun totally intended) with the rest of the world, namely, recycling bras into solid fuel. Yep - women in Japan are being encouraged to recycle their used bras to be converted into solid fuel for industrial use. Major Japanese underwear manufacturer Wacoal started a recycling program in 2008 where metals are removed from donated bras and remaining materials are converted into a type of fuel used for boilers and power generation facilities. The company said it has since collected enough bras produce 17.9 tons of the fuel - a collection of bras, the length of which, if hooked together, would be three times the height of Mt Everest!  Bras are typically made from fabrics and metal wiring, and their construction can make it difficult to separate component materials for recycling. Converting used bras into a fuel classified as “refuse paper and plastic fuel” (RPF) helps make use of fabric material that otherwise cannot be recycled. More good news – the cost of the bra-based fuel is about one-fourth that of coal, and demand for RPF is increasing. For more green ideas, visit www.onethingsacramento.com

The Scoop On Pachyderm Poop

At Germany’s Munich Zoo, you can watch the courtship rituals of the banded mongoose, hear the morning song of the scarlet ibis or visit the Indian elephants, who help keep the lights on with electricity generated from their poop. They can “doo” this because Munich Zoo has harnessed "poo power" - energy stored in animal waste, which can be converted into a fuel known as "biogas."  Here’s how it works - the zoo has built three large containers, each capable of holding about 100 cubic meters of animal waste, or about a weeks worth of dung collected from all the vegetarian animals in the zoo. Once inside the containers, it's mixed with warm water and the bacteria in the dung is left to decompose in an oxygen-free environment for 30 days – yummy! The resulting biogas rises naturally through vents in the ceiling to a corrugated hut on the roof where it's collected in a big balloon. The biogas is then fed into a gas-powered engine that's used to generate electricity which is used to warm the gorilla enclosure. And warm gorillas are happy gorillas, right? A mature elephant can eat about 100 kilograms of fruit, vegetables and pretzels (?) a day, producing a mountain of dung.   All the zoo animals together create roughly 2,000 tons of the stuff every year, or enough to power about 100 Munich households. No S**t! For more green ideas, visit www.onethingsacramento.com

You Say Garden Snail, I Say Escargot!

The garden snail. They are formidable pests which have tormented gardeners for generations. There are more and less environmentally friendly ways of getting rid of garden snails. How about turning them into a gourmet meal?  Sure - why not feast on them before they feast on your produce? Snails are close relatives of clams and oysters, so try substituting snails in recipes that call for other mollusks. Keep your appetite in check while you do your prep work: You need to deslime snails before using them in recipes (see what I mean?).  Soak them in water with 1 tbsp. of vinegar and 2 tbsp. of salt for every dozen snails. Change the solution several times. After soaking, rinse the snails then boil in just enough water to cover them for 10 minutes.  Pick the snails out of the shell with a needle or nut pick, or simply crack the shell between your thumb and forefinger to remove the snail. Cut off the intestines and black parts. Also remove the tail, cartilage and gristle, if desired. You can buy reusable shells, which are sold in import or gourmet shops as "coquilles". Stuff two garden snails in each shell and press herb butter into the opening. Bake at 425 degrees until the butter bubbles. Go on - embrace the garden snail with open arms and an empty stomach. From now on if you catch a snail eating your lettuce, eat the snail!  Simple, sustainable, effective and delicious. For more green ideas, visit www.onethingsacramento.com
