    San Luis Obispo ^ | SEPTEMBER 20, 2017 | Andrew Sheeler
    It wasn’t LSD that killed a Ventura woman who died while attending a music festival last May, according to an amended cause of death released Wednesday by the San Luis Obispo County Coroner’s Office. Baylee Ybarra Gatlin, 20, died of multi-organ failure, hyperthermia (overheating) and dehydration, with other significant contributors listed as coagulopathy (a bleeding disorder) and “possible LSD intoxication” after attending the Lightning in a Bottle music festival at Lake San Antonio, according to “a clarification” that an office spokesman said was submitted by former county medical examiner Dr. Gary Walter. The new report was delivered to SLO County...

    Review: This well-written account is a catharsis for wounded Hillary Clinton Never write from anger. It is simple but sound advice. You make statements you might regret or share thoughts that might benefit from calmer reflection. Or worse still, you might be wrong. In the months since Hillary Rodham Clinton lost the White House to Donald Trump, the Democrat has poured her thoughts and considerable ire into a book running to almost 500 pages that tries to explain “What Happened”. The candidate should have been less definitive in her synopsis, perhaps adding a question mark to the title because it...

    A 19-year-old man who spent 60 hours locked alone inside a gated southern Indiana cave says he feels lucky to be alive. Indiana University freshman Lukas Cavar was on a spelunking trip to Sullivan Cave when he became separated Sunday afternoon from 12 other members of the university's Caving Club. Cavar is an enthusiast of spelunking, the exploration of caves as a hobby. When he eventually reached the cave entrance, Cavar found club members had padlocked its gate, unaware that he remained inside.

    Much of this is about the September 23rd sign and the Rapture, but before that we have a current events update, beginning at the 5-minute mark. This may be the most important message from Amir thus far: We are not to waste this time but use it to bring as many people to salvation as possible. We are not to be discouraged, because God is never late. We are to return to Him and He will return to us.

  • U.S. army probes fake evacuation orders sent to U.S. military, families in South Korea

    The U.S. military said on Saturday it has opened an investigation into fake mobile phone alerts and social media messages advising U.S. military personnel and their families to evacuate the Korean Peninsula. The phony messages, which were spread on Thursday, came at a sensitive time, with tensions high after North Korea conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test on Sept. 3. The test and a series of missile launches have triggered a war of words between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un.

    TED talk ^ | March 2015 | Suki Kim
    For six months, Suki Kim worked as an English teacher at an elite school for North Korea's future leaders -- while writing a book on one of the world's most repressive regimes. As she helped her students grapple with concepts like "truth" and "critical thinking," she came to wonder: Was teaching these students to seek the truth putting them in peril? This talk was part of a session at TED2015 .

    Philanthropy Roundtable ^ | The Summer 2017 Issue
    Mike Rowe has had many jobs: actor, podcast host, even opera singer. But he is best known as a serial apprentice, participating in over 300 grubby gigs on the TV show “Dirty Jobs” and its successor “Somebody’s Gotta Do It.” Affably working alongside people who do the unglamorous tasks that keep our economy humming, such as castrating lambs or laundering tons of dirty diapers, Rowe’s wit and wisdom have made him a favorite with viewers. But over time, he realized that something decidedly un-funny was happening in our country. A narrative that college is the only path to success began...

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday that President Trump’s recent comments about players kneeling during the national anthem are “divisive” and show a “lack of respect” for the pro football league and its players. “The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture," he said in a statement. "Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our...

    The Bronx — The Universal Hip-Hop Museum is finally getting a home, part of a mega-development complex coming to Bronx Point. The museum, which is in its fourth year as an organization, has Kurtis Blow as its chairman, Ice-T on its founding board of directors and LL Cool J as an honorary advisory board member, Executive Director Rocky Bucano said. The museum, originally planned for the Kingsbridge Armory, will use technology to create a multi-generational experience featuring music, artifacts, video and photography, research areas, and a performance stage, Bucano said. It will partner with Microsoft, Google and others to create...
  • Kneeling Players Need Look in the Mirror Before Insulting Trump

    Black & Blonde Media ^ | 9/23/17 | Bob Parks
    Friday night in Huntsville, Alabama, President Trump veered off from the political into sports and condemned the owners and athletes in the National Football League who either kneel or sit during the pre-game playing of our national anthem. While denouncing the president, let's be honest here: going to the White House for most of these black players only became a big deal when they could be pictured with the half-black president. Protesting such an honor only became taboo because of President Obama's skin color, and as President Trump is hated by most in the media and police shootings have become...
  • Mass global extinction that wipes out human civilization will begin in 2100, mathematician predicts

    A mass extinction which wipes out humanity will be underway by the year 2100, scientists have claimed. By the end of the century, it’s feared that so much carbon will have been added to the oceans that the planet will have passed a “threshold of catatastrophe” which leads to the destruction of our species. In the past 540 million years the planet has endured five such wipeouts – including the extinction of the dinosaurs. The worst took place 252 million years ago and is known as the Great Dying. This disaster killed off more than 95 per cent of marine life...

    North Korea said on Saturday that firing its rockets at the U.S. mainland was "inevitable" after U.S. President Donald Trump called Pyongyang's leader "rocket man," in a further escalation of rhetoric between the two leaders. North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho's remarks before the United Nations General Assembly came hours after U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers escorted by fighter jets flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea, in a show of force the Pentagon said demonstrated the range of military options available to Trump. "Through such a prolonged and arduous struggle, now we are finally...

    Obama gave taxpayer money to jarring ‘dog-fighting pitbulls’ art exhibit and even libs are horrifiedAmerican taxpayers are often shocked to discover the strange places their money goes. One of the inevitable issues with big government is that public money is spent on the pet causes of whoever is in power–and citizens rarely find out about it. In a jarring case of wasteful Obama-era spending that even liberals are criticizing, the federal government gave $300,000 to a “modern art” exhibit in New York’s Guggenheim museum that features eight aggressive pit bulls strapped down to wooden tread mills facing each other....

    College hearings into alleged misconduct ‘must be fair and impartial,’ education secretary saysEducation Secretary Betsy DeVos on Friday rescinded the Obama administration’s Title IX letter on campus sexual assault, sparking outrage from her foes but relief from those who have lambasted the policy for eroding due process by favoring the accuser over the accused. Ms. DeVos also issued an interim guidance for schools on “how to investigate and adjudicate allegations of campus sexual misconduct under federal law” while the department proceeds with its rulemaking to replace the 2011 policy. “This interim guidance will help schools as they work to combat...
  • Fake News from The Washington Post About Immigrants and Gangs

    Editor's Note: The following post has been slightly adapted from its original publication at Liberty Unyielding. Aliens are foreigners, not citizens, as one can see from dictionary definitions. So they do not include the typical immigrant, who is a naturalized citizen. It was thus inaccurate for The Washington Post’s Jenna Portnoy to write a story last Thursday claiming that the House of Representatives had passed a bill allowing “immigrants” to be deported if they are criminal gang members, when in fact the bill was aimed at “aliens.” (“Bill lets officials deport immigrants for gang ties,” Sept. 15, pp. B1 &...
