Sunday News and So Forth

The death toll is now 2500 and climbing in the Nepal earthquake:

The death toll from the 7.9 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday has risen to more than 2,500. More than 5,000 people have been injured. Powerful aftershocks today between Kathmandu and Everest unleashed more avalanches in the Himalayas and caused panic in the capital, where hospital workers stretchered patients out into the street as it was too dangerous treat them indoors.

At least 17 people believed to have been killed on Everest, and 61 injured, by an avalanche which left mountaineers calling for helicopter assistance to evacuate the most badly wounded.

How to help? Some ideas here.


You ain't a-kiddin that statement by Jenner was totally delusional.

From the time women are born until they die, their lives are extremely constricted compared to men's, and they have to constantly contort themselves in order to get male approval or at least not get harassed by males.

It's not fun being female in a sexist society.
