Thought it worth a mention for the use of the term "poo apocalypse" oh and some excellent punning at work although they are all clearly a bunch of jobbiesworths ;)

Councillor's aide steps into fecal fracas

Last updated Feb 1 2006 11:52 AM EST
CBC News

Depending on who you talk to, a political aide who cleaned up a non-political mess deserves either a gold star or a slap on the wrist.

Mike Patton took on extra duties last Thursday when he mopped up what he called a "poo apocalypse" in a downtown public library.

Thursday afternoon, Patton got a call from a frustrated patron who opened the men's bathroom door in the Ottawa Public Library to discover a toilet seat and surrounding floor covered in feces.

"Clearly someone was not feeling well and had a bit of a diarrhea issue, and it was all over the seat and the floor and the toilet, in the stall area,"
said Patton, who revisited the scene of the grime with CBC on Tuesday.

The patron first reported the mess to library staff, then to the acting branch manager.

But three hours later, when no action was taken other than to block off the bathroom, he called the office of Coun. Rick Chiarelli, chair of the library board.

"When the call came into the office, I asked him how he wanted us to proceed, and he said, 'Just fix it,' " said Patton, Chiarelli's assistant.

"So, I came over to see if the situation had been remedied and, unfortunately, nobody had had a chance yet to get to it, so I cleaned it up myself."

He found a mop and bucket in the basement and went to work.

The response? Library officials complained the aide took work away from unionized workers and suggested he mind his own business in the future.

Officials say because the cleaners work for the city, they are responsible for a number of buildings. When the problem happened, they were busy at another building.

Chiarelli pooh-poohed their explanation.

"When there's poop on the floor, the first action has to be to clean it up, not send memos and form committees and that kind of thing," Chiarelli said.

So far, the maintenance workers' union has not filed a grievance. But the library apologized to the public for any inconvenience.

And this doesn't really fit in the Nasty Things Found in Food thread:

'Dog dirt slur' on packet of ham

A man has been arrested by police investigating how dog poo came to be listed on the ingredients of a packet of sliced ham.

Detectives were called after reports that the words were found on the label of a 300g packet of the cooked meat, bought in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

Meat manufacturer HR Hargreaves & Son, from Salford, Greater Manchester, is recalling the products.

A 21-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of tampering with the label.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: "A 21-year-old man from Salford, Greater Manchester, was arrested on suspicion of making claims to have made goods appear contaminated."

The man was bailed by police as detectives continued to investigate.

This is a strange sad story:

Long strange non-trip for woman and her two dogs

AP

(2/08/06 - EUGENE, OR) - Debra Schwarz and her two dogs are taking the long way home. The really long way. The three are stranded in Eugene, with no available transportation.

So Schwarz, 46, has decided to walk home to Wichita Falls, Texas, pulling a large cart she built herself and covered with handwritten tirades against people she believes have done her wrong.

The only problem is, she hasn't gotten very far. Every time she hits the road, the police stop her.

Her 4-foot-wide, 7-foot-long cart is a traffic hazard, police said, and puts Schwarz and her dogs, Lucky and Junior, at risk of being hit by a car.

Police in Eugene and Springfield have escorted her off local highways at least three times in the past month after drivers complained that they couldn't get around her.

The police have been kind, towing her cart to nearby churches and letting her camp out until she can get back to her motor home, parked with permission at a business north of Eugene.

And her lawyer and others have offered to buy her a bus ticket from here to Texas.

But Schwarz refuses to abandon her beloved dogs, and so far no one has agreed to take them on until she can return to Oregon in April for a court appearance.

"She's mostly just desperate," her Eugene attorney, Brian Cox, said. "She's a woman whose life has devolved to this point. It's really a sad story."

Schwarz and her late husband, Norris Schwarz, supported themselves in part by selling wrought-iron Christmas ornaments around the country. Each fall, they drove their motor home and a trailer full of goods to a different city and set up shop on open lots.

On her way through Oregon in 2000, Schwarz got a $350 traffic ticket for failing to obey a traffic signal while driving in Lake County. Annoyed, she tucked human feces into the envelope with the money order she sent to the Lake County Courthouse.

Schwarz was convicted of obstructing government administration, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct. A judge sentenced her to a year of probation, which she violated when she refused to pay a fine. As a result, she served six months in the Lake County Jail last year.

While she went to jail, her 82-year-old husband was stranded in Lake County. Police found him disoriented and sleeping in a pickup truck.

As a result, she was charged with felony criminal mistreatment. She is scheduled for trial in April.

Her husband's adult children eventually took him back to Texas. He died of a heart attack while his wife was in jail.

After her release from jail in October, Schwarz got a lift from a friend to Eugene, but has since been trying to get home to settle her husband's estate.

She refuses to pay a fine that would restore her driver's license, so she can't drive her motor home back to Texas. She says she can't take a bus, train or airplane because of her dogs.

She spent a month building her cart, which she pulls along by a metal bar at her waist. She attached flashlights to the rear, added a reflective triangle and scrawled "caution" in big, black letters on the back.

Police and her attorney have convinced her, for now, that walking home in winter might not be the best idea. Down to her last $10, she is hoping someone will volunteer to baby sit Lucky and Junior until she returns for trial. Or maybe she can hitch a ride with a trucker.

If nothing else comes through, she said she'll make the cart smaller and try walking out of town again.

Dung warning over missing buffalo

Police have warned people not to approach six missing water buffalo as "they are able to spray dung across large distances".
The buffalo were last seen in a field in Lower Pennington Lane, Lymington, Hampshire, on Wednesday evening.

Police believe the six animals were stolen because there was no trail of tell-tale dung at the scene.

A police spokesman said members of the public should not approach the buffalo from behind.

Pc Christopher Yates said: "Apparently these animals leave an obvious trail of dung if they walk anywhere, and there is no such trail so it's possible they have been removed using a large vehicle.

"The water buffalo are large, black animals with horns. If they are wandering in the forest, they will look obviously out of place.

"They are usually docile and tend to stay in a group but should not be approached from behind as the person caring for them has advised that the animals are able to spray dung across large distances."

The suspected theft comes after buffalo broke loose in Lymington last November. It has not yet been said if it is the same herd.

The majority of water buffalo are to be found in Asia but have been increasingly used in the UK to produce speciality milk, cheese and yoghurts.

Pig manure swamps German village

A village in the German state of Bavaria is recovering after being flooded with liquid pig manure.

A tank containing the fetid fertiliser burst, sending a deluge of porcine waste into the courtyards and streets of Elsa, police said.

The sewage was half a metre (1.6ft) deep in places.

"The village was swamped with green-brown liquid - the mother of all muck," police spokesman Rainer Prediger, from nearby Coburg, said.

The tank held about 52,800 gallons (240,000 litres) of fertiliser, Reuters news agency reported.

"It was not very pleasant for the villagers," Volker Munk of Coburg police told the BBC News website.

Officer Munk said the slurry ran down the main street, flooding the ground floors of several homes.

Police estimated the accident caused damage that will cost about 100,000 euros (£68,000) to repair, Reuters said.

Ee-uw. I used to live on a road that local pig farms used to cart the animals to slaughter houses, and there are few things less pleasant to smell than those kinds of pig products.

Going back to the first post, having worked in retail that doesn't surprise me. I've often found piles of that most special of presents out on the shop floor - don't you just love the Great British Public? :roll:

Behold the power of poop
City hopes to mine dog park for energy

SAN FRANCISCO, California (AP) -- City officials are hoping to harness the power of dog waste in this dog-friendly city where animal feces make up nearly 4 percent of residential waste.

San Franciscans already recycle more than 60 percent of their garbage, but officials hope to turn into energy the 6,500 tons (5,897 metric tons) of dog waste a year -- nearly as much as disposable diapers, according to the city.

Within the next few months, Norcal Waste, a garbage hauling company that collects San Francisco's trash, will begin a pilot program under which it will use biodegradable bags and dog-waste carts to pick up droppings at a popular dog park. The droppings will be tossed into a contraption called a methane digester, which is basically a tank in which bacteria feed on feces for weeks to create methane gas.

The methane could then be piped directly to a gas stove, heater, turbine or anything else powered by natural gas. It can also be used to generate electricity. Methane digesters are nothing new. The technology was introduced in Europe about 20 years ago, and more than 600 farm-based digesters are in operation there. Nine are in use on California dairy farms, and chicken and hog farms elsewhere in the United States also use them.

Neither Norcal Waste spokesman Robert Reed nor Will Brinton, a Maine-based recycling and composting consultant, knew of anyone in the United States who is using the $1 million (euro840,000) devices to convert pet waste to energy. But Brinton said some European countries process dog droppings along with food and yard waste. "The main impediment is probably getting communities around the country the courage to collect it, to give value to something we'd rather not talk about," Brinton said. "San Francisco is probably the king of pet cities. This could be very important to them."

San Francisco -- the city named after Saint Francis, patron saint of animals -- has an estimated 240,000 dogs and cats. Some experts believe methane digestion must become more attractive economically before it gets popular. Landfill space is relatively cheap, and natural gas and electricity also remain fairly inexpensive. Reed points to San Francisco's groundbreaking food composting program, which began 10 years ago, as proof an unusual idea can work in this forward-thinking city. A Norcal Waste subsidiary collects 300 tons (272 metric tons) of food scraps per day from homes and restaurants and converts it into a rich fertilizer sold to vineyards and organic farms.

"Now, the city's asked us to look at dog waste specifically," Reed said. Because animal waste contains disease causing germs, composting it at home with yard waste and food scraps can be unsafe.

I feel slightly vindicated by this:

Restaurant Offers Toilet Bowl Servings

Food Served in Miniature Toilet Bowls at Taiwanese Restaurant With Scatalogical Theme

By WALLY SANTANA
The Associated Press

KAOHSIUNG, Taiwan - Taiwanese restaurateur Eric Wang has given new meaning to the traditional revelers' cry of bottoms up. His eatery in the southern city of Kaohsiung delivers its food not on conventional plates and dishes, but in miniaturized Western and Asian style toilets, both the flush and non-flush variety.

For anyone missing the point, diners are encouraged to stir up mushy, earth-colored offerings like curry chicken rice and chocolate ice cream to conjure up well, the real thing.


Located in a downtown area with a variety of competing eateries, Marton the name means toilet in Chinese attracts its customers through its dazzling bathroom decor.

Walking in through an arched door, diners are greeted with a giant toilet bowl sitting between two urinals. White ceramic toilet seats comfortably accommodate their bottoms, and urinals grace the walls.

Giggling helplessly, high school student Chen Yi-lin gulps down a chocolate ice-cream sundae served in a miniature Asian-style squat toilet, and admits that she is smitten.

"This is fun," she says.

Wang, 26, opened the Marton last year after a roadside prototype a stand offering toilet-shaped ice cream cones achieved runaway success.

Now, he says, he has moved decisively upmarket.

"Diners come and walk away with the special experience," he said. "Many try to create more fun, stirring up curry and rice so it looks exactly like when you forget to flush the toilet. Then they gulp it down."

For all its scatological excess, the Marton is following in the noblest tradition of Taiwanese novelty restaurants.

Other successful ventures have purposely confined scores of contented diners to coffins or jail cells, or exposed them to full-scale pictures of Chinese dictator Mao Zedong, Taiwan's political nemesis until his death in 1976.

Japanese Make Gasoline From Cattle Dung
By KOZO MIZOGUCHI, Associated Press Writer

TOKYO - Scientists in energy-poor Japan said Friday they have found a new source of gasoline — cattle dung.

Sakae Shibusawa, an agriculture engineering professor at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, said his team has successfully extracted .042 ounces of gasoline from every 3.5 ounces of cow dung by applying high pressure and heat.

"The new technology will be a boon for livestock breeders" to reduce the burden of disposing of large amounts of waste, Shibusawa said. About 551,155 tons of cattle dung are produced each year in Japan, he said. Gasoline extracted from cow dung is unheard of, said Tomiaki Tamura, an official of the Natural Resources and Energy Agency. Japan relies almost totally on imports for its oil and gasoline needs.

The team, helped by staff from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology near Tokyo, produced gasoline by adding several unspecified metal catalysts to the dung inside a container and applying a 30-atmosphere pressure and heat of up to 300 degrees Celsius (572 Fahrenheit), Shibusawa said. Details of the catalysts could not be disclosed, he added.

The team hopes to improve the technology so that it can be used commercially within five years, Shibusawa said. In a separate experiment revealing another unusual business potential for cow dung, another group of researchers has successfully extracted an aromatic ingredient of vanilla from cattle dung, said Miki Tsuruta, a Sekisui Chemical Co. spokeswoman. The extracted ingredient, vanillin, can be used as fragrance in shampoo and candles, she said.

Tsuruta said the vanillin was extracted from a dung solution in a pressurized cooker in a project co-organized by a Japanese medical research institute.

I've heard about this place but I've no desire to go there. I spend a fair amount of time in Kaohsiung at the weekends, though, so if you guys want to send me over some Duane Eddies I will strain myself to go in and dump my review here.

Many would argue that Taiwanese food is shit anyway. (But not me..mmm more chicken neck? Oh I couldn't possibly!)

Young man steals schoolgirl's swimsuit to wear, defecate in

IWATA, Shizuoka -- A man who broke into a high school, stole a schoolgirl's swimsuit and then defecated in it as he pranced around wearing the garment has been arrested, police said.

Yasuhisa Matsushita, 25, a temporary employment agency worker from Fukuroi, Shizuoka Prefecture, was arrested for trespassing and willful destruction of property.

Matsushita admits to the allegations.

"I did it because it felt so good," Matsushita told the police.

Several other high schools in Iwata have recently reported break-ins and police are checking whether Matsushita was responsible for them.

Police said that Matsushita broke into a public high school in Iwata on the night of Jan. 22, sneaked into the swimming club's change room and found a schoolgirl's swimsuit, which he defecated in while wearing. (Mainichi)

Emps: I'm lost for words - a new sexual perversion?


Let's see, that was 4th March. I'd estimate by now there are at least six hundred Japanese websites devoted to it*. Naming a perv. after the perp. is traditional but now I'm wondering if Matsu means swimsuit and he named himself after his hobby. :shock:

*EEEK! There are thousands of them and it seems as if another word for it is "Panasonic" !

Protesters assault officials with manure

Monday, March 13, 2006 - Bangor Daily News << Back

ELLSWORTH - Two masked protesters disrupted an informational meeting Saturday at City Hall and attacked two state agriculture officials with cow manure. No one was seriously injured, and the pair of assailants escaped.

State veterinarian Dr. Don Hoenig and Shelley Doak, director of animal industry for the Maine Department of Agriculture, were winding up a meeting with local farmers when the attack occurred.

The two protesters entered the upstairs auditorium at City Hall dressed in black, wearing caricature masks and carrying "manure pies," a mixture of manure and wood shavings in aluminum pie tins.

They threw the manure at the two officials with enough force that the spray also struck several of the attendees, including a reporter for a weekly paper, and spattered against walls.

The two left the auditorium and escaped through the front door of City Hall, pursued by at least one of the meeting organizers. They fled through the City Hall parking lot toward Main Street and then disappeared.

The meeting had been arranged to discuss proposed legislation that would authorize the state's agriculture department to develop rules for a livestock identification and tracking program.

Although the discussion had been sometimes heated during the session, it had been, for the most part, civil, until then.

Meeting organizers were upset with the attack and feared that it might undo the good the conversation had achieved. Organizer Lore Lipvich of Mariaville said she was appalled by the action.

"We're trying to work this through so everybody benefits," Lipvich said. "This is not the message we were trying to send."

The attack ended the meeting, but Doak and Hoenig remained for a while cleaning themselves off with paper towels and continued to discuss the identification issue with farmers.

Hoenig said he would insist on a police presence for future meetings on this issue.

Police searched the area but were not able to find the attackers. While some witnesses thought the manure came from a horse, the police report referred to the substance as cow manure.

The case remains under investigation.

When I was a kid , there was this Arnold Layne type character going around our neighbourhood stealing womens underwear off the washing lines . One day (and this isn't a FOAF tale - it actually happened to someone I knew ) , a woman discovered that he underwear was missing from the line . Later on that day , she went back out to the washing line as she noticed her underwear was back on the line - only then did she realize that they had been soiled . Dirty bastards.

Mmmmmmmmmm vanilla:

Vanilla smell extracted from cow dung

07.03.06 5.20am

Japanese researchers have succeeded in making the sweet smell of vanilla come out of cow dung.

A heating process allows cow faeces to produce vanillin, the main component of the vanilla-bean extract, said Mayu Yamamoto of the International Medical Centre.

It could be used in shampoo and candles but not food as "it would be difficult for people to accept [given disclosure of] origins of ingredients".

India to become 'open defecation free' by 2012

March 26, 2006

By Prashant K. Nanda, Indo-Asian News Service

New Delhi, March 26 (IANS) Come 2012 and it will be rare to see people defecating in the open in India. So claims Rural Development Minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh, who went on to say that the country was set to achieve 'open-defecation free' status under the government's Total Sanitation Programme (TSC).

'Open defecation is slowly losing popularity in rural India, and the government is doing all efforts to end this for all by 2012,' Singh told IANS.

The TSC was started in 1999 by the rural development ministry to ensure sanitation facilities across the country.

'The growth in the use of toilets from 22 percent in 2001 to 38 percent of the population in 2006 (till February) is an encouraging sign. The government has raised the grant for construction of household toilets from Rs.625 to Rs.1,500.

'While the central government would now bear 70 percent of the expenditure as against 60 percent earlier, the rest will be shared by the state government and the family,' he said, on the sidelines of a campaign on the need to wash hands.

The minister pointed out other issues related to defecation.

'In Haryana and Punjab people are not poor, what they lack is awareness. They have trucks, tractors and four-wheelers but no toilets - this is really surprising. However, states like Gujarat and Maharashtra are doing well,' he said.

Singh said that plans were afoot to extend the TSC to all districts of India by the end of 2007-08 financial year.

Speaking about other sanitation measures taken by his ministry, he said a water surveillance campaign worth Rs.2.68 billion had been launched to train five people in every panchayat (village clusters) to monitor water quality in villages.

'Currently 468 blocks in India have water surveillance laboratories. Under the new campaign, efforts would be made to extend the facility to every block.'

He said 216,000 village clusters were hit by the problem of poor quality water.

'We have reports of excessive fluoride, nitrate and presence of other chemicals in water. The authorities are working to provide quality water.'

3,000 gallons of sewage forced into house

Utility workers trying to clear clog cause unintended smelly consequence

Updated: 5:06 p.m. ET April 21, 2006

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Utility workers trying to blast out a grease clog from a sewer line forced 3,000 gallons of raw sewage into a couple's home, forcing them to abandon their house while hoping that the city makes good on a promise to clean up and repair the damage.

Mac and Meg McCormick say city leaders have also promised to pay for their stay in a hotel until the repairs are complete. The couple doesn't have any of the agreement in writing, and city officials have declined to discuss the case because it's ongoing.

"We feel we have no choice but to put our trust and faith in the hands of the city," Meg McCormick said this week as movers hauled damaged furniture from her house. "And I'll be honest, that's a little scary."

Scott Denham, the risk manager for Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, declined to discuss the details of the sewage backup, but did say, "There's no question of the severity of this event."

City officials don't even know how much the repairs and cleanup will cost, Denham said. Meg McCormick said she has received estimates of $75,000 to $150,000. The house has a tax value of $101,300.
