One of the biggest bucks in the world has made a man go from hero to criminal in a matter of days. Chris Niskanen of the Twin Cities Pioneer Press tells the story of this massive buck. Local farmers in Cannon Falls spotted a massive eight-point buck roaming around their lands. Reinke, the poacher of the eight-point buck, has already taken two deer that year and was going out for an illegal third one. A farmer granted Reinke permission to hunt on his 395 acres of family owned land. The man who owned the farm had no clue he shot two other deer before and said, “If he broke the law, he deserves to be punished.” The story talks about how the man became the local legend at first. Everyone in Cannon Falls was proud of him and happy because of Reinke defeating cancer and surviving a motorcycle accident the summer before this incident. People gathered around him to take pictures until several reporting’s of poaching had been called in on him. Three different TIPS, or Turn In Poachers, made two DNR officers get suspicious and question Reinke on his hunting that year. Reinke eventually buckled and told the officers he had shot two deer already and this one would be his third. Since he failed to tag the two before this deer, the DNR fined Reinke for illegally taking those two deer and for poaching this third one. The fines grew all the way up to about $19,000, a year in jail, and his license taken away for three years. This story is why poaching should end, because this buck is the biggest eight-point buck ever shot. The sad part is that it isn’t on anyone’s wall, but instead on the wall of shame along with the other deer poached (Niskanen). This touches a lot of hunter in a bad way because this deer could have been another hunter’s big buck that deserved it.

Preaching Poaching Problems
The biggest crime done to animals is poaching. Shooting animals illegally is like an officer shooting someone randomly with no reason or right to take the shot. It is a very serious crime that can lead to many problems such as damaged property and extinction of a species. The worst part about it is that poaching is one of the easiest things to stop. Just by turning in anyone seen poaching can bring down many of the poaching rates, because most poachers do not go completely unnoticed when they shoot an animal.
Many hunters don’t come upon poaching very often because they travel far distances to the place they hunt. This describes many people who hunt but live in a town or city. The mass majority of the people who will see someone poaching are people who live in the country. This is obvious because this is where most of the wildlife is. Farmers for sure will see most poaching incidents because drag marks and dead animals can be seen a lot easier when they are plowing a field from a higher view. Poaching is the illegal taking or possession of game animals and fish, non-game, and protected, threatened, or endangered fish and wildlife species (Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife). To sum that up even better, taking an animal or fish without a license is poaching. It may not seem like it is a huge problem at first. Taking a depth into the damages of poaching can show anyone how much of a problem it really is in Minnesota today.

A Brief History In EDM

  The genre the common citizen refers to as techno in actuality is a sprawling network of sub-genres and musical influence. The more educated listener refers to “techno” as EDM, or Electronic Dance Music. EDM can be heard in many forms of music today; in recent years it has grown in popularity unseen to years prior. As electronic music continues to grow, many will find just how possible it is to forget the broadening genre’s origins. To combat this informational ignorance, a trip through time is required. 
As unbelievable as it may seem, electronic music’s origins can be traced back to the disco scene in the 1970’s. This early parent, although not your conventional dance music, shows its impact on the genre today. Although the overall sound of the music has changed, the motive behind it still shines through today. Making good music that many people can enjoy and dance too. EDM’s first song, under today’s standards, was released in 1977. It’s called “I Feel Love” and it is a collaboration between producer Giorgio Moroder and vocalist Donna Summer. Albeit a primitive example of the more technical, and refined synths the populace is used to in the current day, one with a ear for musical similarities can definitely pick out the synonymous rhythms, genre influences, and even beats per minute that are alike. 
After the first trials of including computers and electronics in music was arguably a hit, the genre took off. In the early 1980’s a subgenre would emerge that would define what is considered EDM from those early beginning years and beyond. Acid House began amongst an underground scene in the united kingdom. The pounding bass, the simply repetitive nature, and the overall attitude of those in the know of Acid-House would spread the phenomenon across the Atlantic Ocean over to the youth of the United States.Taking a firm grasp of both the United Kingdom as well as the states. That firm grasp has yet to let go, as EDM’s culture is continually spread to this day. A large jump in popularity took place near the end of the 1980’s and on into the early 1990’s.
Rave may be held in an abandoned warehouse, factory, or even way out in the middle of farm country. These events were shrouded in mystery with flyers being handed out by ravers to fellow ravers, law enforcement was largely kept out of the loop. This posed a problem as many of these gatherings would be illegally hosted by the dilapidated buildings, posing a public safety risk. If inside one of these events, most would be amazed, the sheer technical prowess exhibited by EDM in the 1990’s was to the youth what rock and roll was to the youth of the 50’s. A new type of music that adults despised, yet did not truly understand. The parents of fans in the 1990’s had good reason to fear this new genre, and the mentality that came in tandem. As the music brought people closer at events known today as raves, a notorious substance was gaining control amongst those present. This substance is known today as ecstasy, or it’s chemical name MDMA (methylene-dioxymethamphetamine). Scientifically known as an empathogen, a label belonging to drugs which produce empathetic responses in users, ecstasy would become intertwined with the genre causing widespread fear and hysteria. MDMA raises core body temperature by a few degrees for its duration; a relatively benign side effect on its own, but when paired with hundreds of other user’s all dancing in a stuffy warehouse, temperature’s can rise to deadly limits. In many cases young teens, ignorant to the dangers, would take ecstasy resulting in numerous tragedies. 


Would Kentucky beat the Sixers?

Is it really that crazy to think? I mean c'mon let's have some fun here, because if we actually got to see the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Kentucky Wildcats I would be way too happy of a person. It'll never happen, but Eric Bledsoe went ahead and said what we all were thinking.. The Suns guard said that he believed that the number one ranked college team, Kentucky, would beat the winless and ever so tanking Sixers. The statement itself is incredibly bold because not only is he calling out a group of professional athletes, but he's calling out his peers. The funny thing about it is that there's a chance he could be right. 
The statement by Bledsoe sparked a lot of  conversation about the subject. Talking heads from every end of the US debated whether Bledsoe was right, or if he fell victim to the ever so decieving "eye-test". Bledsoe is apart of BIG BLUE NATION, so he may be a little biased. Personally, I think it would be a stretch, but Bledsoe isn't too far off with his assessment of the matchup. 
Think about it, the Sixers have nine players on their roster that are undrafted and have had to work their way into a roster spot. Most of them should quite honestly be in the D-League or playing over seas. These guys play for Philly and are in the NBA and you probably didn't even know it: Robert Covington, Drew Gordon, JaKarr Sampson, Henry Sims, Hollis Thompson, Jerami Grant. Are you serious?? Who are these guys... Yes the roster does have a little bit of talent in Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, but this team has made it no secret that it's tanking. Literally they're actually accomplishing their goal which is to be really bad in order to get another top pick in the 2015 draft. 
For Kentucky, they have six players alone that are projected to go in that 2015 draft according to Draft Express, and five of those six are projected to go in the first round.  Freshman Karl-Anthony Towns, junior Willie Cauely-Stein and sophomore Dakari Johnson are all slotted in the top-20 picks. Then on top of that throw in Aaron and Andrew Harrison and Alex Poythress who will definitely get drafted. The roster is even more stacked than that with Tyler Ulis, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles and Marcus Lee not expected to leave for the draft by 2015. 
So now that the rosters of the two teams are laid out in front of you, which one do you think would win? Vegas let the world know that they don't think it would be much of a game. Jeff Sherman from Westgate Las Vegas Super Book tweeted yesterday that the Sixers would be 17 point favorites against the Wildcats. It's hard to go against the folks in Vegas, because they're normally pretty close with their lines and estimates. Many people believe there's a major difference between professional and college players and I normally tend to agree. This instance is a little harder for me to side with the professionals though because I don't know how many of those guys would really be on any other NBA roster besides the Sixers. If they're trying to tank, wouldn't they purposely have guys on the team that aren't supposed to be good?? Quite honestly it's hard for me not to choose Kentucky because they have some kids on the team who really intrigue me, but I'll give the slight edge to Philly because if the two teams actually had to play, I doubt they would let themselves lose to a college team. 

Positive Perspective: If the Sixers continue to be bad enough, they may get lucky enough to draft one of these Kentucky players.

The Concept of the "Care Free Black Girl" embodies the idea of being free to be whomever a woman is, despite the stereotypes that she may be forced into by others. Often times black women are depicted in the media (on television, in films, etc.) as struggling, dependent single mothers, welfare queens, hyper sexualized beings, or as being angry, overly masculine and aggressive, with very little wiggle room in between. 

These stereotypes do not include the ones that black women face solely as women or solely as being black people. That being said, with so many boxes to be placed into, the ability to express one's self freely without needing to worry about how others will view you or stereotype you is the essence of the care free black girl. She is not worried about how others will view her, she is  focused on her needs wants and desires and how to express herself creatively and individually based on how she self-identifies.

A large part of the black feminism movement is redefining beauty so black women feel comfortable to be who they are. This is evident in the "natural hair movement" which puts an emphasis on black women wearing their hair naturally, rather than relaxing and straightening their hair to achieve a particular look.

Would you still buy clothes if you knew the process of how they were made? Many of the clothes in American stores are made in Bangladesh, which has a history of workplace disasters. An estimated 200 children, some 11 years old or even younger, and some moms of the children are sewing clothing for Hanes, Wal-Mart, J.C. Penney, and Puma at the Harvest Rich factory in Bangladesh (law.harvard.edu). The workers work overtime, some over-nights, and have to sleep there. They may be beaten and they overall work in a bad working environment.

Adult stem cells

Posted | Views: 777
Stem cells are one of the most argued subjects, and many people are completely wrong if they think embryonic stem cells are the only kind of stem cells
From the moffat county
7th grade
research department

The main point I need to get across is that not all stem cells come from embryos. Stem cells are also found in adults and children. You have stem cells in your brain, your bones, your muscles, your skin, your digestive system, your blood vessels, your umbilical cord, your spinal cord, your liver, and in your reproductive system. What are stem cells? Well, they're an undifferentiated cell of a eukaryote that can lotta lotta more cells of the same type. Stem cell information is mislead and bent for the media for the destruction of our business. The stem cells that are cruel and terrible that are commonly thought of as the only type of stem cells are embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cell research destroys babies and perfectly good embryos, but our research facility is dedicated to curing certain diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, with the one and only, adult stem cell. Adult stem cell research can cure Parkinson's disease with new ways to withdraw stem cells from other people to give new nervous stem cells to the people that have a lack of them. Stem cell research provides jobs,  and adult stem cells can change the world!

STEM CELLS
What are stem cells? Stem cells are cells that can become anything else. For example they can become liver cells, heart cells,etc. There are 2 types of stem cells there are adult stem cells and embryonic cells. People think that stem cells are bad. Mostly because they only now what embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are bad because they destroy other cells. But they don't know about adult stem cells which are very helpful. They can cure diseases and can be used for medicine. They are actually really helpful. At least adult stem cells are! Embryonic stem cells come from an embryo which is 3-5 days old. Adult stem cells come from many things such as bone marrow blood vessels ,etc.Stem cells can treat burns, parkinson, etc...  Well thats all.
