Come hungry. But the truth is with more than 75 Knott’s Boysenberry Festival food and beverage items to choose from, the toughest part is deciding what to try, especially when it comes to new offerings. “It’s really hard for me to tell you which one is my favorite,” Knott’s executive chef Bobby Obezo said. “We came out with such amazing plates — all these items, my mouth gets watery. We did tastings and these were the ones that made it.” Ready to sample some flavors? Here you go: 1. Jambalaya Ma...

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...

Soi Phet surprises everyone by becoming a top racehorse

When trainer Leonard Powell put in a claim for Soi Phet five summers ago at Hollywood Park, he had no idea the new owners’ $16,000 investment would turn out as lucrative as it has. How lucrative? When Soi Phet, a 10-year-old gelding who still runs like a youngster, won the $100,000 Bertrando Stakes at Los Alamitos on Wednesday, he cracked the $1 million mark in earnings. Not bad for a horse who, when claimed, had only a $20,000 maiden claiming victory to his credit. “My idea was to just go throu...

GPS Spoofing Attacks

Wired has a story about a possible GPS spoofing attack by Russia: After trawling through AIS data from recent years, evidence of spoofing becomes clear. Goward says GPS data has placed ships at three different airports and there have been other interesting anomalies. "We would find very large oil tankers who could travel at the maximum speed at 15 knots," says Goward, who was formerly director for Marine Transportation Systems at the US Coast Guard. "Their AIS, which is powered by GPS, would be...

Crossing the uncrossable: A tally of those who’ve driven the Darien Gap

Image via Google Maps. Driving around the world ain’t easy. Visas, funding, language barriers, supply management, and keeping the vehicle running all require resourcefulness and resilience. But even the hardiest of round-the-world drivers tend to stay away from the Darien Gap, leaving just a handful of expeditions that have driven from Central America to South America. Take your pick of adventurers who’ve set out to drive every hemisphere and check their route. Some, like the Paris-to-New-York...

Trump Assures Farmers Immigration Crackdown Won't Affect Their Workers

President Donald Trump said he would seek to keep his tough immigration enforcement policies from harming the U.S. farm industry and its largely immigrant workforce, according to farmers and officials who met with him. At a roundtable on farm labor at the White House last month, Trump said he did not want to create labor problems for farmers and would look into improving a program that brings in temporary agricultural workers on legal visas. “He assured us we would have plenty of access to worke...

Rogers Brubaker on Dutch identity liberalism & civilizational frame – A “Christianist” secularism in Europe?

On The Immanent Frame, Rogers Brubaker writes about a new “Christianist” secularism in Europe. According to Brubaker religion is not just the target of what he calls assertive secularism but that it also informs it as its ‘putative foundation’. Brubaker notes that assertive secularism is not just anti-religious even though it presents itself as a defense of Western values against liberalism (what Tebble has called identity liberalism), but is religious by, first of all, transforming Europe’s div...

Graphic Novel Friday: Darwyn Cooke (1962-2016)

This month, the comics industry and fans grapple with the loss of writer, artist, and animator Darwyn Cooke, a singular talent who passed away at the age of 53. Mr. Cooke’s works, the bulk of which were produced for DC Comics, showcase heroes and villains untouched by the cynicism plaguing so many capes and cowls in contemporary culture. His stories were and will continue to be held up as brightly shining examples of what comics "should be." A Darwyn Cooke comic embraces its retro roots but feat...

‘Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1’ and ‘Part 2’ Won’t Be Called ‘Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1’ and ‘Part 2’

Captain America: Civil War does a pretty great job of getting audiences pumped for the coming onslaught of Marvel Phase Three movies, capped off by Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1 and Part 2 in 2018 and 2019. But prepare to adjust your expectations ever so slightly. Directors Joe and Anthony Russo say the films will probably change their titles, to reflect the fact that they’re two completely different movies and not a single movie broken into two parts.  The Russos let that detail slip when ...

ACLU sues police over seizure, prosecution of 'protest' flag

Brubaker contends the township, and its police chief, Leo Berg III, were wrong to seize the flag and charge him. A Blair County judge dismissed the criminal charges in 2015, saying Brubaker's protest was constitutionally protected speech -- which Brubaker's lawsuit echoes.

No frenzy of traders running around. And the Morning Star tomato packing company at a Wisconsin dairy farm. The farm makes most of its money turning those pigs into hams and bacon.
