Michael Saffioti suffered from an extreme dairy allergy. On July 3rd, 2012 Mr. Saffioti ate something in prison that set this allergy off.

He tried to tell the guards about his negative reaction but they refused to take action. He pleaded with guards to see the nurse, but instead was told to go to his cell. Saffioti, knowing that this reaction could kill him was jumping up and down in his cell pleading with the guards to bring him to the nurse. He was ignored. Thirty minutes later he was found unconscious in his cell, and pronounced dead shortly after. This neglect by the guards is criminal. Ignoring a man as he dies in his cell takes a special kind of sicko.

At the moment you read this, you may want to consider running outside if you're on the east coast of the US. For the folks further west, you have a few hours left to plan.

Assuming that the clouds aren't covering the sky, there is a bit of hopefully spectacular science coming up on the western horizon. While the Southern Hemisphere has had some great views of Comet Pan-STARRS for several weeks, it's now everyone else's turn to have a shot. Starting tonight and lasting through March 20th, Pan-STARRS will start to make it's way up the western horizon - with tomorrow evening (March 10th) marking its brightest point.

Your child's school knows just about everything about your kid. Now, many school districts are storing all that information in the cloud. InBloom, a cloud-based database system for schools, is storing students' data on their servers.

Non-profit inBloom offers an Internet database service that allows schools to store, track and analyze data on schoolchildren. If you think about it, that information is more than just test scores. It's whether kids receive free lunch -- a telling indicator of the family's finances. It's the time a student got into a fight in the schoolyard. And it could be a child's prescription medication. The upshot of storing all that data in one location is that it can be used to tailor specific curricula to each child. If Johnny's data suggests that he's a tactile learner and he's failing math, inBloom's analytic engine might suggest a particular teaching approach.

If it's Friday, it's another White House dump day. Cue the dump truck horn: Doot! Doot! Doot!

While Obama sycophants are busy trumpeting deceptive jobs numbers, the administration is quietly moving forward with job-killing Obamacare regs and taxes. The IRS today released rules to impose the $20 billion Obamacare medical device tax scheduled to take effect next year. At a time when the White House is touting its government initiatives to champion "innovation," the Obamacare innovation tax on medical device/diagnostic manufacturers will kill an estimated 43,000 jobs.

Sonora, CA -- Stanislaus National Forest Officials want your thoughts on the final draft of the plan for removal of timber charred by the Rim Fire.

Ferguson adds they hope to have the final decision on the project's environmental assessment by mid-April and then they can start cutting down the trees. "It will be offered for timber sales, probably more than one sale. We're out looking at those prospective timber unit sales now and just getting our prep work done in the hope that we have our record of decision pretty quick, so we can offer that wood for sale," said Ferguson.

"Meet The Sautners," a promotional ad for the independently made pro-energy documentary "FrackNation," has come under attack by those who want it pulled from YouTube.

"FrackNation" is the brainchild of independent filmmakers Philem McAleer and Ann McElhinney. The movie advertisement features a Dimock, Pa., family, the Sautners, who claim that their water was contaminated with a number of dangerous chemicals including "weapons grade uranium," because of nearby fracking to obtain natural gas. It then goes on to show a group of EPA specialists informing the Dimocks that their water is in fact safe.
