Bayoudegradeable writes "It seems that Photoshop skills that not-so-cleverly hide the bones of a rack of ribs are not enough to change meat into acceptable vegan dishes. The NYTimes reports that readers of VegNews are horrified to learn that images used to portray vegetarian images are none other than meat and dairy images manipulated to hide their animal origins. One commenter noted, 'vegan food must turn out so unappetizing that even the leading vegan magazine will not show legitimate photos of it.'"Link to Original Source

Bayoudegradeable writes "The NY Times is running a story about the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien getting the very short end of the stick, courtesy of New Line Cinema. From the article, "The estate of ''Lord of the Rings'' creator J.R.R. Tolkien is suing the film studio that released the trilogy based on his books, claiming the company hasn't paid it a penny from the estimated $6 billion the films have grossed worldwide." Maybe they've already squandered the $6 billion on trying to erase the public mind of Snakes on a Plane."Link to Original Source
Bayoudegradeable writes "Do you find that the high end clothing you buy isn't cutting it anymore? Don't we all need clothing that, "releases marine amino acids, minerals and vitamins into the skin upon contact with moisture"? Turns out that Lululemon Athletica, with its "stress reducing" line of clothing, is missing the very seaweed it is purported to include. After the New York Times ordered up some lab tests, the fancy yoga clothes seem to look a lot like cotton only clothing. I for one need seaweed in my clothing in order to have balance in my life and I can't believe I am missing out on all the benefits of seaweed/skin contact now!"Link to Original Source
Bayoudegradeable writes "What are some of the costs of increased ethanol production? The Times Picayune in New Orleans is reporting on the massive, and growing Dead Zone that forms each summer in the Gulf of Mexico. Farm runoff, fertilizers and the such are the direct cause and the increased corn production to fuel the ethanol craze is making things worse. Sounds like more bad news for an area still struggling to rebound from Katrina."

NASA announced Monday it will establish an international base camp on one of the moon's poles, permanently staffing it by 2024, four years after astronauts return to the moon.
Will Virgin Galactic get a moon hotel built first?"
