A cold front that crossed through the region changed widespread rainfall over to snow through central Newfoundland Wednesday [May 23] night, steadily falling and accumulating through the overnight hours. Several photos taken in the Gander area show scenes of green grass QUICKLY replaced by a foot of snow in less than 24 hours.
Nice photos at the link. Also, they may get more snow on May 27
The thing that Pedophiles WANT is not sexual pleasure...it is Innocence. That is the key attraction to Pedophiles, a replica will not, and cannot, supply that Essential innocence which is the key attraction for a Pedophile.
There is no substitute for Innocence, actual innocence. Therefore Pedophiles still will search for Innocence to defile. No robot can supply what a Pedophile REALLY desires.
Do you understand? Repeat for me what a Pedopjile really WANTS.
(Let's start some stuff here...)
Riddle me this, Caped Crusader:
You have a hypothetical customer ordering a sex doll. Which one is worse?
(1) It looks like a twelve year old girl he knew in Jr High. , or
(2) It looks like his sister

[SacramentoBee] An Oregon high school student is suing his school, saying it violated his First Amendment rights when it suspended him for wearing a Trump T-shirt.
The student, 18-year-old Addison Barnes, told FOX 12 that he was asked to cover up a T-shirt he was wearing that said "Donald J. Trump Construction Co." on it, or leave school. The shirt also included a Trump quote: "The wall just got 10 feet taller."
According to KGW, Barnes wore the shirt to his People and Politics class at Liberty High School in Hillsboro in January, and he told the TV outlet he knew they'd be discussing immigration in class that day.
The school official who pulled Barnes out of class to ask him to cover the shirt also told him at least one student and one teacher had been offended by the shirt, The Associated Press reported.

[All Africa] President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s government has clashed with a deputy minister captured in a video circulating on social media platforms saying the Zim-bob-we Defence Forces won’t allow MDC-T leader Nelson Chamisa to rule Zim-bob-we if he defeats Zanu PF’s presidential candidate in the forthcoming poll.
According to the state-controlled Herald newspaper, acting Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Minister Simon Khaya Moyo described Economic Development Deputy Minister Terrence Mukupe’s utterances that the army won’t even salute an opposition president as "unlawful and reckless".
Khaya Moyo said Mukupe’s remarks "flagrantly" ran against President Mnangagwa’s pledge to ensure that Zim-bob-we will this year hold free, fair and credible elections.
He is quoted by the newspaper as saying, "...such pronouncements have the negative effect of raising doubts on government’s commitment to a free, fair and non-violent plebiscite as well as to its readiness to respect and uphold the will of the people of Zim-bob-we as expressed through their electoral choices and decisions."
Khaya Moyo said Zanu PF candidate should not drag the Zim-bob-we Defence Forces into political issues as they meet the people ahead of the forthcoming crucial elections.
[ALMASDARNEWS] None of the Russian Army’s air defense missile systems ever crossed the border between Russia and Ukraine, Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Thursday, commenting on the findings released by the Joint Investigation Team on the MH17 crash in Donbass in 2014.
"We got acquainted with the statements made at today’s presser by representatives of the international investigation team on probing the crash of the Malaysian MH17 Boeing over Ukraine on July 17, 2014," the defense ministry stated.
"None of the Russian Army’s air defense missile systems ever crossed the Russia-Ukraine border," the ministry said.
Moscow presented overwhelming evidence proving the use of Ukrainian Buk missile systems in downing flight MH17, the ministry said.
"While cooperating with Dutch law enforcement agencies, Russia presented overwhelming evidence proving that Ukrainian Buk missile systems had been used to down the flight en-route from the Netherlands," the statement reads.
"Moreover, all the primary data received by the Utyos-T radar station, which was operating in the [Russian] Rostov region on July 17, 2014, was passed to the international investigative group," the defense ministry added. "The radar station did not record any aerial objects approaching the Boeing from the east, particularly from the direction of the Snezhnoye and Pervomaiskoye settlements," the statement says.
"The Dutch investigation’s determination to justify its conclusions by using only graphically photos posted on social media causes concern," the statement reads.
"The most important thing that we would like to draw attention to is that Dutch Sherlocks rejected testimonies from eyewitnesses living in Ukrainian settlements close to the crash site, which mention a missile launch from an area controlled by the Ukrainian armed forces," the Russian Defense Ministry added.
[AFP] Deutsche Bank slashes over 7,000 jobs in major shake-up
Germany's largest lender Deutsche Bank said Thursday it will slash over 7,000 jobs and dramatically scale back its investment banking activities as it seeks to turn the page on years of losses.
The announcement came just hours before the bank's annual general meeting kicked off, where newly appointed chief executive Christian Sewing sought to reassure unhappy investors Deutsche is ready to do what it takes to return to profitability.
"We are not yet where we should be. Therefore we must act, and we must act swiftly and forcefully," Sewing told shareholders in Frankfurt.
In a statement, Deutsche said the number of full-time positions globally would fall from 97,000 "to well below 90,000". "The associated personnel reductions are underway," it added.
Deutsche did not mention which countries would be affected, but said a quarter of the jobs in its equities and sales trading business would be cut.
The jobs cull is the first big decision taken by Sewing, who unexpectedly replaced CEO John Cryan in early April.
Sewing had already signalled he was planning deep cuts at Deutsche's trouble-plagued investment banking arm, shifting the focus to more stable business activities such as retail banking, particularly in Europe.
"We remain committed to our corporate and investment bank and our international presence," Sewing said.
"We are Europe's alternative in the international financing and capital markets business. However, we must concentrate on what we truly do well."
As part of the revamp, Deutsche added that it will reduce the investment bank's exposures by over 100 billion euros, or around 10 percent.
Deutsche also said it would step up its cost-cutting drive, aiming to reduce adjusted costs to 22 billion euros ($26 billion) in 2019, compared with 23 billion this year.
"Overall, we see today's announcement as the right step," JPMorgan analysts said in a client note.
Investors appeared unimpressed however, with Deutsche shares slipping 1.10 percent to 10.78 by 0945 GMT, against a Dax index of leading German shares up 0.16 percent.
- Angry shareholders -
Thursday's shareholder gathering is likely to be a stormy one, with investors expected to vent their anger over the bank's disappointing stock performance, poor earnings results and last month's turbulent leadership reshuffle.
Former CEO Cryan was unceremoniously ousted after coming under growing pressure from leading shareholders and supervisory board chief Paul Achleitner, who accused the Briton of taking too long to get the financial giant back on track after it posted its third year of losses in 2017.
Sewing, a Deutsche veteran, has vowed to refocus Deutsche Bank on retail banking and asset management, seen as more stable sources of income, while slimming down its share trading and other investment banking activities.
In corporate banking, Deutsche plans to slash its commitment to the United States and Asia, and instead focus more on Germany and Europe.
Other items on Deutsche's restructuring to-do list include fully integrating subsidiary Postbank into its German retail banking operations and further reducing its massive holdings of financial derivatives.

One interesting thing about the aftermath. Ford moved 84,000 lb of its machinery from this plant to somewhere in the UK over a 30 hour period to recover their ability to continue producing their best selling line, pickups. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
Electrical fire, fuse room with *live* power, and (idiot) supervisor was stopped pulling a 1" water hose at the door... Probably would have shut down the whole production floor for a week and *zapped* him into Intensive Care (if he was lucky).
