Baby goats are wearing sweaters to support the Denver Broncos

It turns out that baby goats root for broncos.

Farmer Rebecca Herberg resides in Montrose, Colorado with 150 kids. And by kids, we mean baby goats.

The goat mama spoke to CBS Denver about her kids and told a reporter all about their current fashion choice: blue and orange sweaters to represent the Denver Broncos.

She even knits the sweaters herself.

While Herberg hasn’t always been a football fan, the Denver Bronco’s success has inspired her to create blue and orange sweaters for the chilly goat babies in honor of the Super Bowl-bound team.

“They’re really a team that you can be proud of, and I love them,” she told CBS. “It’s not so much I’m a football fan as that I’m a Broncos fan, and how can you not be?”

As for the sweaters, the goats seem to be warm, happy and ready to cheer on their home team.

“They look like a bunch of little Broncos fans running around down there,“ Herberg said.

Mashable has reached out to Rebecca Herberg for comment.

Women and the 32-Hour Workweek

Our video team shot this short documentary on Treehouse, a tech start-up with a very non-traditional outlook on the workweek:

One reader raises an interesting point:

While I appreciate the overall message and goal that the CEO is trying to create with this schedule, I would have loved to have heard more from women working at Treehouse. Women in tech are already an underrepresented minority, and this sort of scheduling will have a far greater effect on their lives because (although this is a big generalization that I’m sure I’ll get burned for in the comments section), women are often responsible for the majority of childcare, cooking, and cleaning in the home.

Instead, in the video, we have two prominently positioned males within the company who primarily discuss how such scheduling allows them more time to relax and be creative, with only a brief acknowledgement that the truncated work hours “likely help my wife.”

Trump Gets Booed at the Republican Debate Over Support for Eminent Domain

Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump drew jeers from the audience for his forceful defense of eminent domain during the eighth GOP debate on Saturday night.

The real estate tycoon parts from many conservatives in supporting the practice, which allows private property to be seized for public purposes. Asked by a moderator at the Manchester, New Hampshire, debate to expand on his views, Trump didn’t back down.

“So many people have hit me with commercials and other things about eminent domain. Eminent domain is an absolute necessity for a country, for our country,” Trump said. “Without it, you wouldn’t have roads. You wouldn’t have hospitals. You wouldn’t have anything. You wouldn’t have schools. You wouldn’t have bridges. You need eminent domain.”

Ironically, as Trump went on to note, many of his conservative critics are also vocal supporters of the Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport oil from the tar sands of Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and would require the use of eminent domain.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush pounced, bringing up the case of an “elderly woman on the strip in Atlantic City” whose property Trump wanted to seize. Bush was referring to the case of Vera Coking, who ultimately prevailed over Trump in court in 1998.

“That is not public purpose. That is downright wrong,” Bush said.

After a heated back-and-forth — in which Trump jabbed that Bush “wants to be a tough guy” — Trump attempted to retake control of the conversation, only to encounter boos from the audience.

“Let me talk. Quiet. A lot of times, a lot of times —  that’s all of his donors and special interests out there,” Trump said, referring to the booing. “So, it’s what it is. That’s what it is. And by the way, let me just tell you, we needed tickets [to the debate]. You can’t get them. You know who has the tickets — to the television audience? Donors, special interests, the people that are putting up the money. That’s who it is. The RNC told us.”

Our joint cultures have been living and breathing this mission from our companies’ inceptions.”

Modi misleading people on Paradip project: Congress

New Delhi, Feb 8 (IANS) The Congress on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of misleading the nation and making “hollow and lame allegations” regarding the delay in the commencement of the Paradip oil refinery project in Odisha.


Modi resorted to myopic politicking while inaugurating the Paradip project on Sunday, said Congress leader and former union minister Srikant Jena in a statement here.

“Had the prime minister been honest and sincere, he would have appreciated the Congress-led UPA government in the development of Paradip and Odisha instead of making hollow and lame allegations about the project having been delayed. We call upon him to introspect and do necessary course correction,” Jena added.


“Narendra Modi’s rhetoric is founded on blame game and criticising the previous governments instead of providing leadership to the nation. The net consequence is that repeated public utterances of the prime minister are based on deliberate ignorance and selective amnesia towards facts,” the Congress leader said.

He said the project was conceptualised in 1992 by the then prime minister P.V. Narasimha Rao with a capacity of six million tonnes, later increased to nine million tonnes by the United Front government headed by H.D. Deve Gowda.

He said the foundation stone was laid by the then prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee in 2000.

The Congress leader said the project was called off due to “delay and non-cooperation by the Biju Janata Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party coalition government in Odisha which refused to provide sales tax concession”.

Jena said the United Progressive Alliance government led by Manmohan Singh revisited the project and “persuaded the then BJD government in Odisha to sign a memorandum of understanding”.

He said the then UPA government and the Indian Oil Corporation Limited announced a fresh project with a capacity of 15 million tonnes refining capacity along with other downstream projects.

Jena said the then UPA government approved expenditure of Rs.35,000 crore in 2009 and its completion in 2012-13.

“What is remarkable is that despite being a green field project in remote area, 95 percent of the work was completed by 2014 during UPA government’s term,” the Congress leader said in the release.

Modi had on Sunday dedicated to the nation a 15-million tonnes per annum refinery and expressed regrets over the delay in execution of different projects.

He took a dig at the Congress and said “nowadays whenever I go to inaugurate any project, the friends in Congress party say it was started during our time”.

Direct flights between Indonesia, India likely this year

New Delhi, Jan 27 (IANS) Direct flights between India and Indonesia are likely to begin this year to facilitate tourism, Indonesian ambassador Rizali W. Indrakesuma said on Wednesday.


“The Indian government has already given permission; it is a matter of how Indonesia responds. We are hoping that direct flights between the two countries begin by this year or by next year at the latest,” said Indrakesuma said.

The first flights both governments plan to launch initially are between Delhi and Jakarta and Mumbai and Bali. Garuda Indonesia and Air India will operate flights between the two countries.

The ambassador said a deal on the matter could be finalised in March when the transport minister of Indonesia will participate in an event organised by the civil aviation ministry in India.

“This is an opportunity for our minister to engage with the Indian civil aviation minister (Ashok Gajapathi Raju Pusapati) at an event organised in Hyderabad in March,” the ambassador said.

“The consulate general of Indonesia in Mumbai will push the ministry of tourism to open direct flights for the first time between Delhi and Jakarta and Mumbai and Bali. Last year, 262,000 tourists from India visited Indonesia; we expect the figure to go up to 350,000 this year. First it’ll be a government-to-government engagement and later we can engage private airlines,” said Taufik Nurhidayat, deputy director, ministry of tourism, Republic of Indonesia.


Indonesia attracts the highest number of tourists from Singapore, followed by Malaysia, Australia, China, Japan, Korea and India.

PetSmart® Launches TurboPUP, Pet Food Innovation Discovered on ABC’s Shark Tank

PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–

Last Friday, Kristina Guerrero, founder of TurboPUP, impressed the sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank with the news of her exclusive, national retail deal with PetSmart. The specialty pet store will carry her TurboPUP innovative portable meal bars for dogs in more than 900 PetSmart stores across the U.S. and Canada this year.

This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160208005113/en/

Guerrero’s big idea for a lightweight canine meal replacement bar was sparked by a backcountry ski trip with her dog Dunkan five years ago. Realizing he was as hungry as she was, she fed him her own provision even though she knew the food was lacking in proper canine nutrition. The experience fueled her quest to find suitable travel food for Dunkan, but she came up empty handed and decided to create TurboPUP – a premium, compact and “Complete K9 Meal Bar” to help sustain a dog’s energy level.

Guerrero headed to the kitchen, and with the help of her food-scientist husband, found the perfect recipe using grain-free, all-natural, human-grade ingredients. TurboPUP bars are a complete meal replacement solution and formulated with essential vitamins and nutrients dogs require in every stage of life.

“Kristina’s entrepreneurial spirit and hard work creating TurboPUP is the true definition of innovation,” said Eran Cohen, chief customer experience officer at PetSmart. “We love pets and know they make us better people, and we always want to deliver new solutions to help pet parents take better care of their pets, as well as to support the range of pet lifestyles out there. So many people are now always on-the-go with their pups, and TurboPUP bars are the ideal portable food solution for those weekend warriors out with their dogs whether camping, hiking or spending a day at the dog park or mall.”

TurboPUP meal bars are manufactured at a facility in Oregon and use American-sourced, human-grade ingredients. These all-natural, high-protein and grain-free bars are perfect for pet parents who get out with their dogs. The compact, lightweight meal bars come in two canine-favorite flavors: peanut butter and bacon.

“I’m thrilled TurboPUP is going to be in PetSmart stores. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to offer TurboPUP bars to dog owners and dogs across the country,” said Guerrero, TurboPUP Founder and CEO.

Guerrero, a decorated U.S. Air Force Veteran, first appeared on Shark Tank in Jan. of 2015 where she walked away with a $100,000 investment from Shark Tank’s Daymond John. The funds helped her kick-start TurboPUP with manufacturing, distribution and expansion plans for the TurboPUP line.

PetSmart is the largest pet specialty retailer for services and solutions that address the lifetime needs of pets, and is dedicated to product innovation, often premiering the latest pet lifestyle products in its stores. Debuting the TurboPUP product is a natural fit, and the bars can now be found at PetSmart stores and petsmart.com through April 2016.

OTAN condena el lanzamiento y pide Corea del Norte evite nuevas provocaciones

Bruselas, 7 feb (EFE).- El secretario general de la OTAN, Jens, Stoltenberg, condenó hoy el lanzamiento de un cohete de largo alcance por Corea del Norte y pidió a ese país que se abstenga de nuevas acciones que supongan una provocación.
Stoltenberg expresó en un comunicado su “firme condena” al lanzamiento del cohete que, recordó, se produce tras el ensayo nuclear que el país llevó a cabo el pasado 6 de enero.
Subrayó que el lanzamiento “es una violación directa de cinco resoluciones del Consejo de Seguridad de Naciones Unidas”, que prohíben a Corea del Norte el uso de tecnología balística.
“La OTAN continúa pidiendo a las autoridades norcoreanas que cumplan con sus obligaciones bajo el Derecho internacional, que no amenacen o conduzcan lanzamientos haciendo uso de tecnología de misiles balísticos y que se abstengan de otras acciones que supongan una provocación”, añadió Stoltenberg.
Corea del Norte volvió a desafiar a la comunidad internacional al lanzar por segunda vez un satélite al espacio, una acción que ha generado fuertes protestas al ser considerada un ensayo de misiles encubierto. EFE

PHOTOS Pamela Anderson avec Anthony Delon au Bal de l’Opéra de Vienne

Remplaçant son père Alain Delon au pied levé, Anthony a pu se balader au bras de Pamela Anderson au Bal de l’Opéra de Vienne.

Les divas de l’Opéra de Vienne faisaient pâle figure à côté de Pamela Anderson qui portait une robe bustier noire ce jeudi 4 février pour le Bal annuel de l’institution. En même temps, comment rivaliser avec la plus pulpeuse des sauveteuses en mer ? Elle avait beau ne pas être sur scène, celle qui porta mieux que quiconque le maillot de bain rouge d’Alerte à Malibu a concentré tous les regards et les attentions.

Appelé à la dernière minute pour remplacer son père dans l’impossibilité de voyager, Anthony Delon a pu profiter du spectacle aux premières loges. Le cardiologue d’Alain Delon ayant estimé qu’il était plus prudent que l’acteur de 80 ans ne s’aventure pas jusqu’en Autriche, son fils a pris la relève et n’a pas dû le regretter. Aux côtés de Pamela Anderson, il semblait ravi d’être là. L’actrice toujours aussi distinguée a parfois eu du mal à gérer les froufrous de sa robe, mais s’en est sortie sans le moindre accident vestimentaire.

Avec un décolleté plongeant dans le dos, Brooke Shields a elle aussi très bien pris la lumière et offert aux hôtes de l’Opéra un spectacle mirifique.

Rishikesh

Surrounded by hills and bisected by the Ganges, Rishikesh is often known as the `Yoga Capital of the World’.

Some of the major attractions include Triveni Ghat, Bharat Mandir, Rishikund, Ramjhula and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram. The destination also offers adventure activities such as skiing, trekking, rafting, camping, mountain biking and paragliding.

Playboy Mansion to become members' club?

The Playboy Mansion could be turned into an exclusive members’ club.

The iconic property is currently up for sale for $200 million - though the buyer must agree for media mogul Hugh Hefner to continue living there - and Jeff Beacher, who owns Las Vegas nightspot Beacher’s Madhouse, has met with Playboy executives to discuss buying the six-acre estate.

The businessman wants to create a partnership with Playboy Enterprises that would allow him to use the Playboy name for the club and has drawn up paperwork for a $90 million offer, comprising $12 million from himself and the remainder from partners.

Jeff confirmed to TMZ he is serious about his plan, which would see him invest $20 million in renovations, keeping the main structure intact and adding five bungalows for guests.

A Playboy executive told the website they would “seriously entertain” the proposal, but not necessarily his price.

However, with Holmby Hills, where the mansion is situated, being one of Los Angeles’ most exclusive areas, it is unclear whether the businessman and his partners could get a license variance for a club.

Jeff’s bid comes shortly after Larry Flynt - whose Larry Flynt Publications publishes pornographic magazine Hustler - expressed an interest in the property, but didn’t want to meet the asking price, nor was he keen to have the 89-year-old magazine publisher living in the house, which was a condition stipulated in the sale.

Expedition Finds Hidden Population Of 200 Lions In Ethiopia

Lions have been discovered living in the Alatash area of Ethiopia, where they were previously believed to have been wiped out.

Around 200 of the animals were found living happily in the wildness, in a rare piece of good news for conservationists and wildlife lovers.

Africa’s lion population has been dramatically reduced in recent years due to human hunting and habitat destruction.

Estimates now suggest there are fewer than 20,000 of the big cats living on the continent. 

The Alatash area of Ethiopia was thought to have been just one region where they had died out.

However, reported sightings led the Born Free foundation to go an expedition to the area with Oxford University’s Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU). 

There, the teams found a hidden population believed to be central African lions, the rarest subspecies, according to The Sunday Times.

Virginia McKenna, star 1966 film from which the foundation takes it name, told the paper: “We are thrilled to have found them.

“I suspect it is one of the last hidden populations — they would once have numbered in the hundreds of thousands and now they are at serious risk of extinction so it is wonderful to find a new population.”

The expedition to Alatash was led by Professor Hans Bauer, WildCRU’s lion conservation co-ordinator for the Horn of Africa.

He said: “Lions are definitely present in Alatash national park and in the adjacent Dinder national park [in eastern Sudan] — the population is 100-200 animals.

“This population probably belongs to the much more endangered central African subspecies. They are otherwise normal lions but maybe they are extra nocturnal and hard to find because they are not used to people.”

Abogado de expresidente salvadoreño Flores culpa a tribunales de su muerte

San Salvador, 31 ene (EFE).- El abogado del fallecido expresidente salvadoreño Francisco Flores (1999-2004), Edgar Morales Joya, culpó hoy a los tribunales del país centroamericano de causar la muerte del exmandatario mediante “una serie de injusticias y actuaciones arbitrales”.
“El fallecimiento de él (Francisco Flores) es producto de todas las arbitrariedades que se realizaron, en particular por los tribunales, y por las especulaciones en su contra con respecto a su enfermedad”, indicó Morales Joya a Efe.
El deceso del exmandatario se produjo este sábado cerca de las 22.00 hora local (04.00 GMT del domingo), poco antes cumplir una semana de haber sufrido el accidente vascular que le causó un daño neurológico irreversible.
Flores estaba acusado de apropiarse de 5 millones de dólares y desviar otros 10 millones a una cuenta de la opositora Alianza Republicana Nacionalista (ARENA), siglas bajo las que gobernó, provenientes de donaciones taiwanesas.
El dinero estaba destinado a financiar obras de reconstrucción y de atención a víctimas de dos terremotos que afectaron a El Salvador en enero y febrero de 2001.
El abogado aseguró que el ex jefe de Estado “nunca tuvo que estar en la cárcel y que las acusaciones en su contra fueron muy severas, aún cuando no se pudo comprobar nada”.
Francisco Flores se entregó a la Justicia salvadoreña el 5 de septiembre de 2014, tras estar prófugo durante cuatro meses, y permanecía en arresto domiciliario desde el pasado 21 de enero luego de que la Cámara Primero de lo Penal le restituyera este beneficio que había sido anulado en noviembre de 2015 en la etapa de instrucción.
Por otra parte, Morales Joya señaló que el Tribunal Quinto de Sentencia, que conoce la causa, deberá determinar si existe responsabilidad civil en el caso de Flores.
“La ley establece que cuando una persona que está siendo procesada muere, el proceso penal concluye, más no su responsabilidad y es obligación del tribunal resolver lo que respecta a eso, con base en pruebas y el mismo juicio”, concluyó.
Flores fue el primer presidente de la historia democrática de El Salvador en ser procesado penalmente por delitos de corrupción. EFE

22 courriels top secrets d'Hillary Clinton ne seront pas publiés

par Arshad Mohammed et Jonathan Allen
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Le département d'Etat américain a reconnu vendredi pour la première fois que les responsables des services de renseignement étaient dans le vrai quand ils disaient qu'au moins 22 courriels envoyés via la messagerie personnelle de Hillary Clinton contenaient certains des secrets d'Etat les plus “sensibles”.
Ces 22 courriels, qui datent du temps où Hillary Clinton était secrétaire d'Etat, ne seront pas rendus publics dans la mesure où les informations qu'ils renferment sont classées “top secret”, a expliqué le porte-parole du département d'Etat, John Kirby.
Cette annonce a été faite à trois jours du caucus de l'Iowa, toute première étape du processus des primaires en vue de la présidentielle du 8 novembre. Hillary Clinton, qui brigue l'investiture du Parti démocrate, est donnée dans cet Etat, lors du caucus du 1er février, au coude à coude avec le sénateur du Vermont Bernie Sanders, incarnation de l'aile gauche du parti.
“Ces documents n'étaient pas estampillés ‘classés secrets’ au moment où ils ont été envoyés”, a dit Kirby, ajoutant que le département d'Etat cherchait à déterminer si les informations contenues à l'intérieur étaient ou non 'classées’ au moment où elles ont transité par le compte mail privé de Hillary Clinton.
Le département d'Etat et les responsables du renseignement se querellent depuis au moins cinq mois à propos des courriels de Hillary Clinton, dont une partie a déjà été rendue publique sur ordre d'un tribunal fédéral. Le département d'Etat a maintenu, à l'origine, que Hillary Clinton pouvait avoir obtenu les mêmes informations de façon indépendante, via des canaux non 'classés’.
L'équipe de campagne de Hillary Clinton a critiqué la décision du département d'Etat de ne pas publier les 22 courriels, résultante selon elle de “dissensions bureaucratiques” et d'une “folie du secret”, en ajoutant que les courriels devraient être publiés.

CERTAINS RÉCLAMENT DES POURSUITES
Certaines informations ont été censurées dans les quelque 1.300 courriels déjà rendus publics, car le département d'Etat les considère comme “classées secrètes”. Mais c'est la première fois que des messages entiers sont retenus.
Les élus républicains du Congrès ont vivement reproché à Hillary Clinton d'avoir utilisé sa messagerie privée dans son travail en tant que secrétaire d'Etat de 2009 à 2013. Certains de ses adversaires républicains dans la course à la présidence, comme le gouverneur du New Jersey Chris Christie, ont réclamé des poursuites en justice.
Pour Reince Priebus, président de la commission nationale républicaine, a estimé que Hillary Clinton avait “mis en danger notre sécurité nationale et notre diplomatie”.
Le gouvernement interdit de transmettre des informations classées secrètes - qu'elles soient ou non estampillées ainsi - en dehors des canaux sûrs, contrôlés par les autorités. Il lui arrive parfois de poursuivre en justice des personnes qui retirent ces informations-là des canaux jugés sûrs.
Le démocrate Adam Schiff, qui siège à la commission des renseignements de la Chambre des représentants, a défendu Hillary Clinton dans un communiqué, estimant que la qualification d'information “secrète” était “souvent très complexe” et que la secrétaire d'Etat avait “fait face aux événements de la planète en temps réel, sans le profit de plusieurs mois d'analyses a posteriori”.
