Standard Oil controversial history as one of the world's first and largest multinational corporations ended in 1911, when the United States Supreme Court ruled that Standard was an illegal monopoly, and must be dissolved under the Sherman Antitrust Act and split into 34 different companies. Two of these companies were Jersey Standard, which eventually became Exxon; and Socony, which eventually became Mobil. Other Standard Oil breakup companies include "Standard Oil of Ohio" which became SOHIO, "Standard Oil of Indiana" which became Amoco after other mergers and a name change in the 1980s, and "Standard Oil of California" which became the Chevron Corp.
So the The second season of True Detective is on its way, and from the looks of the trailer, it is going to be very intense, and very very dark. The clip is about one minute long, and Rachel McAdams, is seen doing some very impressive work with a knife. Meanwhile, Colin Farrell shows his risque side, while Vince Vaughn plays the bad cop role. It also features a return of what's shaping up to be the hot catchphrase of summer 2015: “We get the world we deserve.” The second season of True Detective will be premiering on June 21st on HBO.

Only 2g of Cerebos Iodised Table Salt provides 15% of the recommended daily allowance of iodine.
Here is an absolutely FANTASTIC deal on used Glock handguns of almost every make and caliber.
So Google Translate identifies the phrase "si moj medvedek" as Slovenian and translates it to "art my teddy bear" but my hunch is something is getting lost in translation.
And in case you missed it over the weekend, Spanish matador Saul Jimenez Fortes is lucky to be alive after being gored by a bull during the San Isidro Fair in Madrid. Fortes was rushed out of the bullfighting ring and taken to a local hospital after he was brutally gored, first in the stomach and then through his fucking neck. The bull horn that ripped into Fortes' neck apparently bruised both his carotid artery and jugular vein.
On April 1, 2015, Governor Jerry Brown issued California's first ever mandatory, statewide water restrictions and ordered the State Water Resource Control Board to implement a mandatory reduction in potable urban water use through February 2016. Citing the state's four-year drought after a winter of record-low snowfalls, Governor Brown , directed the State Water Resources Control Board to impose a 25 percent reduction on the state's 400 local water supply agencies, which serve 90 percent of California residents.
