Physicists Find 'God' Damned Particle | GlamTribale: "Hang Tight! The Goddesses Are Coming!" | Mermaids Debunked!

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

It’s not often that the New York Times and FOX News agree on anything. But today the Times writes CERN Physicists May Have Discovered Higgs Boson Particle and FOX weighs in with Physicists find evidence of new subatomic particle that resembles Higgs boson.

FOX writes:

To cheers and standing ovations from scientists, the world’s biggest atom smasher claimed the discovery of a new subatomic particle Wednesday, calling it “consistent” with the long-sought Higgs boson — popularly known as the “God particle” — that helps explain what gives all matter in the universe size and shape.

Physicists don’t use the term ‘God particle’, coined by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Leon Lederman, who said he chose the word in an attempt to explain its intrinsic relevance to physics but also, in humor, that his publisher wouldn’t like him call it the “God damned” particle.  

Two independent teams of researchers have worked on the long-sought Higgs boson. In December, the same teams hinted at positive news that’s critical to a full understanding of the physics of the universe. This time, each team used independent ways of hunting for Higgs bosons, and found compatible results that literally have a 1 in a million chance of being wrong, writes the Christian Science Monitor.

Nada to Mermaids

We note with amusement — but also growing concern for the future of American women —  that the National Ocean Service posted on June 27 that mermaids don’t exist.

Christopher Columbus in 1493 documented seeing three mermaids from a distance near Haiti. Live Science reports

Up close, the sea maidens were “not as pretty as they are depicted,” he wrote in his journal, “for somehow in the face they look like men.”

The Goddesses Are Coming

Spittin’ Out the Pitts on Facebook

Smart Sensuality wisdom does involve elements of intellectual seduction, a womanly knowledge of what constitutes the irresistible.  Delicious food and sensual images tend to attract attention, and I admit to using them with wanton abandon in the determination of our national group of Spittin’ Sisters to unseat PA 16 Rep Joe Pitts and elect Aryanna Strader.

GlamTribale Says “Hang Tight, The Goddesses Are Coming!”

Do note that ‘Bathing Beauty’ legs are open, revealing her genitalia under the water. The inference is that our lady of the harbor is nude and ready to receive.

It is this aspect of female nature that monotheism, in particular, seeks to conquer.  We note with amusement — but also growing concern for the future of American women —  that the National Ocean Service posted on June 27 that mermaids don’t exist.

Scientists believe that Columbus may have seen manatees. Perhaps Columbus actually saw Mami Wata in action. She has a long history in Haiti on her voyage from Africa to Brazil with many cultural stops along the way.  As the slave trade spread, so did Mami Wata’s influence.

Savannah Guthrie Headed for "Today"? | Cantor's VA Voters Poll Pro-Choice in Very Conservative District

Toni Garrn | Francois Nars | Vogue Japan August 2012 | ‘Tropical Princess’ AOC Private Studio

French Roast News

Anne is reading …

The Hollywood Reporter says that Savannah Guthrie will be named co-anchor of “Today”, replacing Ann Curry as soon as the transition to a new role for Curry can be negotiated. Simply stated, it’s all a matter of money say those who know.

Australian-born Savannah Guthrie attended the University of Arizona and Georgetown, where she earned a J.D. Guthrie has been co-hosting the third hour of Today” for the last year. She moved into that slot a year ago, leaving her post as chief legal correspondent and also a White House correspondent.

Guthrie is a brainiac! Of the 634 people taking the Arizona bar exam in July 2002, Savannah Guthrie got the highest score, according to the state Supreme Court.  She is divorced from then-BBC journalist March Orchard since 2009.

Ann Curry will be leaving the “Today Show’ but staying with NBC, say insiders.

The LA Times reported on Monday that Ann Curry may receive as much as $10 million to leave “Today”. She holds a three-year contract guaranteeing her that amount annually. The 55-year-old model of poise and grace under fire, will reportedly return as a foreign correspondent for NBC News.

Revenge of Shiny Objects

Virginia’s transvaginal untrasounds may be blowing up election dust in Eric Cantor’s face. A new poll from Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, a traditionally reliable district in America, shows “surprising vulnerabilities for Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, especially on the issue of women’s health,” writes Think Progress.

The Harrison Hickman polled voters say they would support a pro-choice candidate 68% to 23% over a pro-life candidate. The poll also called into questions the Republicans’ “it’s my way or the highway” attitude regarding working with the Obama Administration. 43% of voters say they would replace Cantor versus 41% who say they would re-elect. Cantor is running against the relatively unknown 30-year veteran and moderate Democrat Wayne Powell.

Republican Women Donors Support New Planned Parenthood Merger in Texas | Evangelicals on Abstinence 

Liquid-Plumr added a bit of handsome beefcake and housewifery imagination to this spring’s ad campaign, produced DDB, San Francisco and directed by Biscuit Filmworks’ Clay Weiner.

Bringing a big smile to the face of many viewers, One Million Moms — who protested JC Penney’s hiring of Ellen Degeneres at their spokesperson— swung into action, driving lots of visibility for the campaign and over one million video views in a week.

One Million Moms wrote:

Liquid-Plumr presents two sexy plumbers in their new commercial. The Clorox Company introduces the Liquid-Plumr Double Impact Snake and Gel System in this ad which is full of sexual innuendos as well. They are attempting to use sex to sell a product to unclog drains.

The commercial starts off with a woman in a supermarket daydreaming about what this new Liquid-Plumr product has to offer. She says, “Double impact,” twice as she reads the bottle. In her dream she is at home and answers the door to find a sexy plumber. The plumber is nice looking with huge biceps and a tight shirt. He says, “I’m here to snake your drain.” She says come on in and he walks upstairs. The doorbell rings again and it is a second sexy plumber. He says, “I’m here to flush your pipe.” She answers with an okay and while he walks on upstairs she lets out a squeal and moan while letting down her hair. Then she wakes up to reality to find the two men in the supermarket. She flirts by giving sexy eyes to the one man in the deli slicing meat and the other in produce holding two melons. These two men are the same as in her dream. It may be coincidence, but the man in produce is standing beside cucumbers with a price sign behind him reading 69 cents.

The new Liquid-Plumr ad is offensive and completely inappropriate for television.

We side with Libby Copeland, writing Bring On the Sexy Plumbers for Slate, who argues that this ad isn’t at all your typical stereotypical commercial because we have a nerdy female protagonist with a very playful delivery.

One again, the social conservatives doth scream too loudly. Smart people like AOC readers know that 1) social conservatives buy more pornography than any other group — and Sunday is the biggest day of the week for sales; 2) the classic good girl, stay-at-home mom is the most likely subscriber to Ashley Madison’s marital affair website and 3) what women say and what we do aren’t frequently not in alignment. A 2005 Internet search survey of 75 million users put to rest the truth of women’s online behavior, almost reinforcing point 2 made by Ashley Madison.

Daily French Roast

Anne is reading …

Mary Green, Peg Armstrong and Jan Perrault hold up signs during Women’s Health Express, a bus event held in San Antonio to protest the attempt to cut Planned Parenthood from the state’s Medicaid Women’s Health Program. A federal judge in Austin issued an injunction Monday that stopped the state from banning the organization from receiving state funds, but that injunction was stayed by a federal appeals judge Tuesday. (Helen L. Montoya/San Antonio Express-News / May 1, 2012) Planned Parenthood of Texas won a brief victory yesterday when a federal judge in Austin issued an injunction that prevented the state of Texas from withdrawing all Medicare funding from 49 clinics serviced by the organization.

Today, Judge Jerry Smit of the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans stayed the injunction, giving Planned Parenthood until 5pm today to file an opposition brief pending the appeal filed by the state of Texas yesterday.

In a new development, Planned Parenthoods in Texas quietly completed a merger of three regional branches (North Texas, Austin and Waco) into one $29 million-per-year, 26-clinic mega-organization. This is not the first Planned Parenthood merger in Texas. “In 2006, Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas teamed with Planned Parenthood Louisiana to form Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, which operates 13 health centers across two states,” writes the NY Times.

Tactically, the merger makes the new Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas monolithic in both geography and scope. In 2012 the group will have 26 clinics, with four providing abortions and an expected 180,000 annal patient visits. 

Perhaps most important, Planned Parenthood will directly connect wealthy donors in Dallas to poor women at the other end of the state. Key to the Texas plan to save Planned Parenthood are wealthy Republican women, the original sponsors and funders of the organization.

The merged organization has budgeted roughly $24.5 million in private donations, fund-raising events and client fees in 2013, is already rolling out the latest in electronic health records technology. “And it absorbs the fruits of the North Texas branch’s recent five-year capital campaign, including an Addison health center that tripled in size with a recent relocation and a new $6.5 million health care clinic, administrative facility and abortion clinic under construction in Fort Worth” writes the NYT.

New Admissions on Abstinence Education

On rare occasions a truly honest article about sex and abstinence hits the digital airwaves. When the National Association of Evangelicals admits in a video that eighty percent of young evangelicals have engaged in premarital sex and almost one-third of evangelicals’ unplanned pregnancies end in abortion, such an article as Huff Po’s With High Premarital Sex And Abortion Rates, Evangelicals Say It’s Time to Talk About Sex gets our attention.

At this month’s Q conference in Washington, as part of a session on ‘reducing abortion’, respondents were asked if churches should support the use of contraception among unmarried singles. 64 percent said ‘yes’.

At an April 2012 ‘Sexuality and Covenant’ conference, co-sponsored by the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, the agenda contained the statement that ‘marital sexual relationships’ are not available for many Christians.

If evangelicals are finally recognizing that comprehensive sex education and access to contraception has the most positive effect on reducing America’s abortion rate, there exists an opportunity for dialogue between currently opposed forces. There is absolutely no evidence that abstinence-only education works and it seems that the National Association of Evangelicals finally agrees.

Trendline

The XX Factor reports that a survey of 3,000 Gen Xers finds that men are making two-thirds of the meals that married women do, and 80% the meals of single women.

Pew Research shares a new survey that Supreme Court favorability ratings have reached a new low. Only 52% have a favorable opinion of the Supreme Court, down from 58% in 2010 and the previous low of 57% in 2005 and 2007.

Also from Pew Research, young women now surpass young men on the importance of career in their lives. Two-thirds (66%) of young women ages 18 to 34 rate career high on their list of life priorities, against 59% of young men. In 1997, 56% of young women and 58% of rated career as a top priority.
