Patchy Kings edge dogged Bullets in NBL

  Patchy Kings edge dogged Bullets in NBL The Sydney Kings have steadied after their shock NBL loss to Melbourne United but were far from impressive in their 95-85 win over the Brisbane Bullets. Sydney looked unbeatable a week ago but their sixth round loss to Melbourne United preceded a rousing performance from the Bullets at Brisbane's Nissan Arena on Friday night. The Kings dug themselves out with a 21-8 third quarter and a polished performance from Brad Newley, whose 20 points and cool head were exactly what was required in the face of the determined Bullets.

A gay penguin couple have stolen an egg in an apparent attempt to become dads.

A pair of gay male African Penguins were discovered nesting an egg alongside heterosexual couples at the DierenPark Zoo Amersfoort in the Netherlands, Out.com reported on Thursday.

"The gay couple are looking after the egg very well and take turns in keeping it warm," zookeeper Marc Belt told DutchNews.nl. "Homosexuality is fairly common in penguins, but what makes this couple remarkable is that they have gotten hold of an egg."

The zoo says the gay couple stole the egg from a heterosexual couple during an "unguarded moment." The heterosexual penguins went on to produce another egg.

Same sex coupling appears to be fairly common among penguins, and in the animal kingdom in general. There have been several instances of same sex pairs adopting eggs at zoos, but they are typically provided by zookeepers rather than stolen by the penguins.

In August, two male King Penguins at the Berlin Zoo reportedly adopted an egg after attempting to nest with several different objects including "a wet rock and a slimy fish." After those items predictably failed to hatch, zookeepers provided the pair with a donor egg from a 22-year-old female penguin.

"It is very common that two penguins of the same sex come together. I don't think it is the majority of penguins, but it is not rare either," zoo spokesperson Maximilian Jäger told The New York Times. "We are sure they would be good parents because they were so nice to their stone."

At a zoo in New Zealand, a lesbian penguin couple called Thelma and Louise were given an egg after previously fostering a chick that the bird's birth mother had struggled to take care of.

FOX NEWS - A gay penguin couple at Berlin Zoo has been given an egg to adopt after staff noticed their attempts to hatch stones. The egg was from a female penguin at the zoo who had been unable to hatch her eggs for a number of years in a row. “Skipper and Ping want to become parents

"They absolutely love having a chick to take care of," said zookeeper Ebony Dwipayana, according to PinkNews. "Obviously they're not able to have their own, so the fact that they can still raise a healthy chick is amazing for them, and is such a beautiful experience to share."

Although homosexual penguins have been known to zoologists for a long time, they have only garnered wider attention in recent years. In the past, there appear to have been at least some efforts to conceal the behavior.

During the failed Scott Antarctic Expedition of 1910-1913, U.K. scientist George Murray Levick was surprised to witness what he described as "constant acts of depravity" by penguins. Levick was apparently so shocked to discover gay penguins that he attempted to contain the spread of the information by writing his report in Greek. When his paper was published, the homosexual behavior was intentionally left out.

EVE Online Rescinds Longtime Rule That The Game's Developers Have To Be Anonymous .
For years, developers at CCP have been restricted in the ways that they can play EVE Online by internal company policies that force complete anonymity for their characters. If a developer’s character name was ever found out by a regular player, they were forced to report themselves to Internal Affairs and undergo a ‘Witness Relocation’ process. This process forced them to leave any player corporations they might have belonged to with no warning, and to change their character’s name and portrait in an attempt to restore their anonymity. Soon, that process will change, and developers will be allowed to play EVE as themselves.
