According to a recent poll, 70 percent of voters in New Jersey do not think their own governor would make a good president. When trying to get the whole country’s electorate to like you, it does not help that he can’t even get some love from his current electorate. Let’s face it, Chris Christie does have a “love him or hate him” personality. Some people admire his gruffness and sometimes too aggressive straight talk, and some consider him a bully. There is now an accusation as well about him having failed to pay taxes on a fairly large sum of money. Additionally, he is not the favorite even among many Republicans that he was in 2012 as he is considered to be too moderate. Of all the declared and potential candidates, he may have the biggest uphill battle.

Four families, in Denmark and the United States, filed a lawsuit against a sperm bank clinic Nordic Cryobank, a located in Copenhagen, because one of its donors has a defective gene.
Donor sperm 7042 has fathered 20 children in Belgium, 44 in Scandinavia, 34 in the United States and one in Iceland. It is also known that his semen was “exported” to a California Cryobank.
From 2009 until now, it has been confirmed that 10 of their descendants have neurofibromatosis (NF1), including Andrea, a girl of a Danish mother who was conceived in Belgium.
(NF1) is a genetic disease which stimulates the growth of tumors in the nervous system, increasing the risk of cancer, causing learning difficulties and reducing life expectancy up to 15 years.
“The case is not about money or revenge; the fact is that we have not been able to get some information and that the only way is through the court,” said Lone Sogaard-Kristensen’s mother of Andrea, who is now six years old.
According to Nordic Cryobank, claims against them are unfounded.
Peter Bower, director said that the Donor 7042 cannot be “clinically classified as NF1, because you only have the defective gene in some cells.”
The clinic has decided to continue using his sperm. Bruce Karatz will be paying attention to see how smart of an idea it might be.

The spokesman of the ministry, quoted by the official SPA news agency, said that the release of Mr. Khalidi was the result of “efforts of the Saudi intelligence services,” without specifying whether these services had mounted an operation in Yemen to snatch him from the hands of his captors. The spokesmanadded that the diplomat would undergo medical examinations before returning to his family. He recalled that Mr. Khalidi was kidnapped outside his home in Aden before being put in a “suspicious transaction” to members of the “deviant group”, al-Qaeda.

The Ag-gag bill is proposed in North Carolina to protect the farm owners from being investigated by authorities against animal abuse. There a lot of inhumane animal killing happening behind closed doors and this is something that America does not want the world to see. This kind of practice has been happening for many years and some whistleblowers and undercover agents have managed to get in the facility and witness with their own eyes how these animals are being killed.
Whistleblowers reported them and they were fined $5,000 which is actually not enough for the kind of cruelty they are doing.
The new Ag-gag bill which is being proposed again today is The Property Protection Act which is about preventing videotaping and audio recording of what is being seen in their farms. Animals are for human consumption, but and they do not deserve this kind of treatment before they die.
If this Bill is approved, investigators will no longer be able to see what they are doing to their animals and these poor animals will forever suffer the inhumane practices of these farms.
