This wouldn’t work for the business I’m in. I run drilling and exploration and research programs or camps in remote parts of the world and if I’ve learned one thing only it’s that someone has to be in charge, period, and that’s me. I make the rules, period, and everyone follows them or they’re gone in short order. I run a benevolent dictatorship program and always listen to anyone with suggestions and always lay out the plan and ground rules for everyone every day. It works. How about on a military sailing ship? You think this system would work? I think not. Or with a military battalion at war? There would be chaos. Someone has to be in charge and everyone needs to fear them to some degree. I got into one remote Antarctic camp once that was run on this warm and fuzzy ‘management by committee’ system. It was a total failure. My employees, whom I had not personally hired, thought they worked for someone 660miles away in McMurdo. Never had a worse camp and was glad to get out and never went back.

I agree pschlentz. Ms. Swift is a bright beacon in the sea of narcissism in the entertainment world and deserves buckets of kudos.

The title should read “Antarctic Sea Ice”. They drilled the Ross Ice Shelf so they drilled through a floating ice shelf and into the ocean below. What a surprise to find fish in the ocean. Shocking. I ran research camps in that area for years. This is not really big news. The shelf was drill in 1966 also.

You can get rid of ALL the ads down the sides of all websites you go to by installing “Ghostery” from ‘ghostery.com’. When you configure it check all the boxes on what it blocks. It’s a great little program that works perfectly as far as I can tell.

Welcome to Oregon, yet another Communist stronghold within our borders.

What a great comment by Keaton!! “Obama would have a white kid?”….. Why, he just might actually, and think…. just think how that might change his and the countries life! Maybe then he’d be seen for what he really is…. B/W….
Has it been proven the one is accused of shooting her husband, is the one who actually did it?

Wow; this article sure brought the communist idiots out of their burrows like possums to a dead cow carcass! I love how the know it all communist Keaton spelled Karl Marx with a C! Good job Keat! You clearly got a good communist education! Someone else called Marx an author and philosopher?? What he really was was an unemployed narcissistic bum who lived off money stolen by his cohort Engels and was kicked out of how many countries as an undesirable?; all so he could spend his life sitting in the library looking for evidence to support his warped pre-conceived notions on socialism while his kids lived in squalor and starved to death at home. Whatta guy, eh? Not my idea of a good father or citizen. And to think people still swallow the garbage he penned. A 9th grader could write a treatise that makes more sense than the Manifesto. Marx was an idiot and should be treated as such in history books.

Agreed! Why did his foot hit the ground at that speed?? Negligence and/or inexperience in my book.

All I can say is he needs to practice more and to carry his piece in plain sight on his hip while in the store.. He took a big big risk playing Matt Dillon when the guy had a shotgun to his head. The perp was obviously not a serious whack job or he would have blown his head off. This guy was lucky and needs to put more chips on his side by becoming more proficient with his sidearm.

“Atlas Shrugged”….. Orwells “1984″…. it’s all in there and written long ago. We’ve let this happen.

The thought that she and her terrorist husband Ayers are teaching our youth is thoroughly repugnant and indicative of how low the moral compass of this country has slumped to. She is disgusting and shouldn’t be getting any positive press. Redford is a moron for making a movie in this crap.

They don’t need the physical evidence in this case. Pictures would suffice.I had all my guns stolen once. They recovered some, took pitcures, and gave them back to me pronto. This is BS what’s happening here.

This kind of footage is nothing new and was done many years ago by other divers. As a geologist I find it fascinating and would love to dive and watch it happen!

Wow. I hope those “Obie’s” get canned fast. Very poor excuse for Texans and police officers.
