Experts surprised by theft of artificial insemination tanks containing a large quantity of cattle semen
Semen from prize-winning animals can command a very high price.
Semen storage is a specialised industry and as one farmer put it to me: "You don't mess around with liquid nitrogen."
that cold temperature makes it very dangerous, which is why those using it for artificial insemination storage must be trained and registered.
And the tanks must be topped up several times a year to keep them functioning.

RIP Bull, too:
A growing group of UC Berkeley students has been staging a months-long protest campaign demanding that the university bring a suspended Spanish and Portuguese professor back to campus. They’ve shared testimonies highlighting how influential [she] has been both as a mentor and as a leading scholar at a school with few Latinx faculty....But records obtained by KQED paint a troubling picture of what led to [her] suspension. Over three investigations, which looked into behavior that began in 2018 and continued through 2022, the university found [she] had repeatedly harassed, stalked and retaliated against ... an English and Comparative Literature professor at UC Davis, and then violated orders not to contact him.......[The Davis professor] has stirred his own share of controversy.

Arizona Coyotes defenseman Travis Dermott shamed the NHL into rescinding its ban on Pride tape; Scholastic might have reconsidered its stance, too
There's been a trend this NHL season that has nothing to do with the sport's on-ice product. Several teams have announced plans to hold Pride Nights, during which players wear jerseys celebrating the LGBTQ+ community either during warmups or games -- or both.But many of those plans have been scraped by teams after being made public....As the Athletic notes, five percent of the NHL's players are Russian."These are legitimate fears," Ben Noble, associate professor of Russian politics at University College London, told the Athletic. "'If you put on a Pride jersey, then there is uncertainty regarding how this would be interpreted by law enforcement in Russia — and that's a risk.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman says the league will no longer have teams wear themed jerseys during warmups for Pride Nights or any specialty night games going forward.
Don’t you see? The NHL had a problem, and it had to solve it. NHL teams have been holding Pride nights for 10 years and ... uh, OK, there was no problem for pretty much all of that. The first NHL Pride Night was in Florida in 2013, and for almost a decade it was a lovely little inclusive thing, along with other nights: Hockey Fights Cancer, Military Appreciation and more — from Indigenous celebration nights across Canada, to South Asian Heritage Night in Winnipeg, to Gender Equity Night in New Jersey.
Arizona Coyotes defenseman Travis Dermott recently became the first player to challenge the NHL's ban of Pride Tape when he used it on his stick in a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday. Following Dermott's decision, the NHL has rescinded its ban on players using Pride Tape, the league announced on Tuesday...."It was kind of just an, 'All right, I'm doing this, and we're going to deal with the consequences and move forward, and hopefully I'll have a positive impact on some people that needed that positive impact.'"
Pride Tape is back because Travis Dermott, a completely expendable defenceman on a one-year deal just above the league minimum, had the balls to stand up for his convictions at what could have been at a cost to his career. https://t.co/vOZlwwU6WO pic.twitter.com/Wz2FkJTqa3— Mike Beauvais (@MikeBeauvais) October 24, 2023

AP says the person placing the threat (apparently as a prank) was arrested.
I assume she means this, and the "giant green man" is Demeter:Q: I love that, I’m so excited for that. Actually, that brings me to my first question I have for you. When did your love for mythology start?SMYTHE: So I liked it for a really, really long time, maybe since childhood? I think my introduction to it is really similar to a lot of people. So Disney’s Hercules came out when I was maybe a middle schooler, but I don’t know for sure because the education system is different here. But it came out, and I watched it. I was very fond of it, and loved it very much. Of course, we then see people who see something they like, and they need to research it a lot.Me and my sister were very much into it. When we learned that Hades had a wife, I was like, “He has a wife, Why wasn’t she in that movie?” But she was actually in the movie—she’s like, in the background having a giant cocktail. Yeah, if you look at the beginning bit of it, she’s got a drink. A cocktail. Like that’s that big (gesturing). Like, baby, look out. She’s talking to some giant green man. But yeah, I loved it and researched it as a kid, and just consumed as much as humanly possible. And the rest is history!

Consistently my favorite podcast--his picks for five video games are very dull, but he's very engaging discussing his career.
A look at the movers and shakers in politics, finance, and the arts. Language like this:
She knows how to dial up staffers’ insecurities to extract good work, but if she decides you’re a mediocrity, your career is pretty much on ice.
And businesses like this:
A few years ago, the owner of Freedom Cruises, ... received a letter informing him he had 24 hours to vacate his berth at Pier 36, just north of the Manhattan Bridge. Quickly, he came to the conclusion that Hornblower Group, another cruise operator, was after his spot and had enlisted the mayor’s office to get it. “They sicced the fire department on me, the health department on me; they went after my liquor license,” says [the owner]. “Hornblower has enough muscle that they can do whatever they like.”
Whether or not it’s sustainable is another matter. An audit by Comptroller ... in 2022 reported that NYC Ferry operations had somehow lost track of $224 million and that taxpayers had subsidized a stunning $12.88 of every ride in 2021.
