Monday Morning Roundup

A combat-hardened Dutch journalist is threatened with a knife and an attempted mugging while trying to report on the conditions inside the migrant "Jungle" camp in Calais, France.  "I've done a lot of work in war zones and crime-ridden areas around the world, so I wasn't surprised about the mugging," Voeten told The Local.  Great.  The perfect people to welcome into Western civilization with not just open arms, but unlimited welfare benefits and social perqs too.

Tour operators operating off the coast of Nicaragua ignored a sailing ban issued by authorities since Friday in the Caribbean region because of strong winds and waves, Nicaragua Navy chief Marvin Corrales said.  21 people were able to be successfully rescued, but 13 people died when the boat sank in the rough seas.

The Baltic Dry Index, which tracks the cost of leasing ship rates, continues its slide as the global economy continues its molasses-like slowdown.  Warren Buffett, the "Oracle of Omaha" saw his holdings lose 15% YOY in 2015.  Meanwhile, shills for the Obama Administration continue the Big Lie that the US "may" tip into a recession, but otherwise, everything's great!

The latest Snowmageddon hitting the northeast US reminds me of two fun snow treats we enjoyed making:  snow taffy and snow ice cream.
