We're not quite back in the saddle, but definitely getting closer to the horse.

I've transitioned back to working at home, but this first week requires effort ironing out the kinks in the arrangement. The good news is that things are going fairly well, and the web version of KGB Report should be back on the air this coming Monday.

In the meantime, visit KGB Report's Facebook page which will continue to be regularly updated, as well as my personal Facebook page which is also fairly active.

Thanks for your continued support.

Four weeks to go until training is complete and KGB Report's web version returns. We may be able to fire things up a bit earlier, but right now time remains tight.

In the meantime, visit KGB Report's Facebook page which will continue to be regularly updated, as well as my personal Facebook page which is also fairly active.

Keep on Truckin'...

Training for the new job goes well, but is incredibly time-consuming. While I will ultimately be working from home, the need to commute in and out of the downtown robs me of three hours a day; over four, if you include the time required to prepare and decompress. The hours which remain afford little time to prepare the web version of KGB Report. The posting software requires about an hour every time I publish anything, do to re-indexing and other operations.

So, we're going to extend the sabbatical of the web version of KGB Report a bit more. We have some ideas to automate things, but we'll need several free days to implement them.

In the meantime, visit KGB Report's Facebook page which will continue to be regularly updated, as well as my personal Facebook page which is also fairly active.

Thanks for your continued support.

Note: the web and mail versions of KGB Report will not be published next week. My family's unreasonable demands to eat on a daily basis have forced me to seek additional employment. We will return, however, on Monday, October 16. In the meantime, you can check our ongoing posts on the KGB Report Facebook page.

Today is Thursday, October 5, the 278th day of 2017 in the Gregorian calendar, with 87 days remaining.

This is the 258th day of Donald Trump's presidency, of which he has spent 64 days at golf courses at a cost to taxpayers of $71,723,684. There are 1,203 days remaining in his term, assuming he doesn't resign, is otherwise removed from office, or his unhinged, psychotic behavior results in the destruction of the republic.

Among other things, today is National Apple Betty Day.

Police say nude, drunk Florida man fired weapons.

Quote of the day:

"Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it."
-Denis Diderot (October 5, 1713 – July 31, 1784))
(More Denis Diderot quotes)

Bonus Rex Tillerson/Donald Trump quote:
"He hated it when you called him a moron. All morons hate it when you call them a moron."
-from "The Catcher in the Rye" (J.D. Salinger)

On this date in 1969, Monty Python's Flying Circus began airing on the BBC.

Ivanka, Trump Jr. were nearly charged with fraud in 2012: report. Trump Soho wasn't even in Soho.

Tillerson’s news conference only highlights strains with Trump. He didn't call him a moron. He called him an effing moron.

New tropical depression poses weekend threat to Gulf Coast. It's supposed to reach Pittsburgh on Tuesday, when I need to go downtown. Of course.

-----

Millions of life years saved if smokers switch to vaping. An ER nurse told me this five years ago. Coincidentally, I was there being treated for pneumonia.

-----

Stretchy glue heals wounds in 60 seconds. The injectable glue, MeTro, is based on a naturally occurring protein called tropaelastin. It is applied directly to the wound and is then activated with UV light to form a complete seal, eliminating the need for staples or stitches. Its elasticity means it's designed to work well on shape-changing internal organs like the lungs and heart.

Research indicates you can cut your risk of depression in half by doing this one thing. Not reading articles like this one?

-----

CDC: 40 percent of cancers linked to obesity, overweight. Which means normal and skinny people get 60 percent of cancers, right?

-----

A mother refused to follow a court order to vaccinate her son. Now she’s going to jail. Speaking of which, I got my flu shot yesterday. Since I'm going to be riding the train and working in the downtown, I need to protect myself...

Siri briefly thought Bulgaria's national anthem was 'Despacito'. But it did pronounce both correctly.

-----

Cats kill one million birds a day in Australia. Well, yeah, but it's Australia, you know?

-----

'Alien Megastructure' ruled out for some of star's weird dimming. It's just dust. Sorry, Ringworld fans.

No, a second gunman did not shoot from the fourth floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

Drunken Florida man returns fire at neighbor family doing some backyard target practice.

Quote of the day:

"Get as mad as you like but never get off the payroll."

On this date in 1957, Leave it to Beaver premiered on CBS. In its first season on CBS (1957–58), the show received only fair Nielsen ratings and CBS canceled it. ABC then picked up the program, and although the series never entered the list of the top 30 television shows, its ratings warranted a five-year run. By the start of the 1962–63 season, the show was reaching an impasse. The series was still popular with audiences, but Jerry Mathers wanted to retire from acting at the end of the sixth year to attend regular high school.

The show's cultural impact was such that 25 years after its premiere, it was still fodder for satirical take-offs:

States gird for worst as Congress wrestles with children's insurance program. I guess the GOP figures if you eliminate them when they're young, they won't burden Medicare later...

CNN claims Russian-linked Facebook ads targeted Michigan and Wisconsin.

Rep. Tim Murphy (R-PA), popular with pro-life movement, urged abortion in affair, texts suggest. This bozo is my Congressman, who ran unopposed in the last general election. Fortunately, the Democrats will have a viable candidate next year. And lest you think my dislike is from his current behavior, check out this letter to the editor I wrote back in 2012 (it's the third one down). Not surprisingly, I never received a response. I'd love to join the merry folk posting nasty things on his Facebook page but, alas, my comments are still disabled. Pop over and let the good Congressman know what you think. And say hi for me.

Five things you need to know about the flu.

Better buckle up. Clear air turbulence is set to triple due to climate change, scientists warn.

-----

There's new evidence that life on Earth began with meteorites crashing into warm little ponds. A new study suggests meteorites may have delivered compounds that could have led to the formation of RNA (a cousin of DNA) in ponds all over the Earth.

-----

Forget the Yellowstone supervolcano... A huge Siberian eruption almost sterilized the Earth in the Great Permian Extinction 252 million years ago. Wikipedia says it was the Earth's most severe known extinction event, with up to 96% of all marine species and 70% of terrestrial vertebrate species becoming extinct. It is the only known mass extinction of insects. Some 57% of all families and 83% of all genera became extinct. Because so much biodiversity was lost, the recovery of life on Earth took significantly longer than after any other extinction event, possibly up to 10 million years.

This year's Harvest Moon is kind of special. But it's still just another full moon.

Scientists can now produce electricity from tears. If they could generate it from stupidity, we'd really be in business.

This is what it looks like when the president asks people to snitch on their neighbors. In April, the Trump Administration launched what it called the Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement (VOICE) hotline, with a stated mission to “provide proactive, timely, adequate, and professional services to victims of crimes committed by removable aliens.” But internal logs of calls to VOICE... show that hundreds of Americans seized on the hotline to lodge secret accusations against acquaintances, neighbors, or even their own family members, often to advance petty personal grievances.

Your birth month can determine what diseases you'll likely develop. The reason is, environmental factors the developing fetus is exposed to, can affect the child's health later on. Babies born in summer or fall for instance, are more likely to develop asthma since the mother, pregnant mostly through winter, had a higher risk of catching a cold or the flu.
