    A concrete structure of three meters wide and over two meters high, placed by order of Augustus (adoptive son and successor of Julius Caesar) to condemn the assassination of his father, has given the key to the scientists. This finding confirms that the General was stabbed right at the bottom of the Curia of Pompey while he was presiding, sitting on a chair, over a meeting of the Senate. Currently, the remains of this building are located in the archaeological area of Torre Argentina, right in the historic centre of the Roman capital...

    James Clapper, director of National Intelligence (DNI), has come out swinging against his critics, just two weeks after his public affairs director said that US intelligence had initially labeled the attacks on our Benghazi consulate “spontaneous.” Back on September 28, the DNI public affairs director explained, “We provided that initial assessment to Executive Branch officials and members of Congress, who used that information to discuss the attack publicly and provide updates as they became available. As we learned more ... we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried...

  • University's diversity chief put on leave after signing anti-gay marriage petition

    The chief diversity officer at Gallaudet University was put on administrative Wednesday after the school learned she had signed a petition supporting efforts to reverse Maryland’s same-sex marriage law, media reports say. Dr. Angela McCaskill signed the petition at her church after her preacher spoke against gay marriage, the Planet DeafQueer blog reported on Monday, citing a Gallaudet faculty member who first spotted the administrator’s name on the document. Voters in Maryland will decide on Nov. 6 whether to keep a state law passed earlier this year approving same-sex marriage.
  • DNA has a 521-year half-life

    Nature ^ | Wednesday, October 10, 2012 | Matt Kaplan
    By comparing the specimens' ages and degrees of DNA degradation, the researchers calculated that DNA has a half-life of 521 years. That means that after 521 years, half of the bonds between nucleotides in the backbone of a sample would have broken; after another 521 years half of the remaining bonds would have gone; and so on. The team predicts that even in a bone at an ideal preservation temperature of -5 °C, effectively every bond would be destroyed after a maximum of 6.8 million years. The DNA would cease to be readable much earlier -- perhaps after roughly 1.5...

    With a House Oversight committee slated to hold a hearing on the deadly Benghazi consulate terrorist attack at noon today, there was really no excuse for CNN's Starting Point to not cover the story. But alas, anchor Soledad O'Brien checked her journalistic credibility at the dressing room door, going on air with Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) sounding more like an Obama apologist than a hard-nosed reporter. O'Brien questioned Rep. Chaffetz -- who chairs the House Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations -- on his claim that this administration hasnÂ’t been forthcoming with the facts surrounding the attack....

    Reuters ^ | 10/10/12
    The picture is deceptively normal. Posted on the Facebook page of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, it shows the first lady Asma, dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, accompanying her daughter and three sons on their first day back at school. Two of the boys wear camouflage shorts with khaki t-shirts and caps, in keeping with the spirit of a ruler under siege. Yet when she dropped off Hafez, the eldest, named after his strongman grandfather, only one other child had arrived in class because of rebel attacks in Damascus that morning. More than 18 months into the battle for...

  • Supreme Court justices cast doubt on Texas program that looks at race in college admissions

    AP/WaPo ^ | 10/10/12
    Supreme Court justices sharply questioned the University of Texas’ use of race in college admissions Wednesday in a case that could lead to new limits on affirmative action. The court heard arguments in a challenge to the program from a white Texan who contends she was discriminated against when the university did not offer her a spot in 2008. The court’s conservatives cast doubt on the program that uses race as one among many factors in admitting about a quarter of the university’s incoming freshmen. The liberal justices appeared more supportive of the effort. Justice Anthony Kennedy, whose vote could...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Steve Wynn on Tuesday appeared on a political program in Nevada called Ralston Reports. The host was Jon Ralston. Wynn is livid. You know what's happening? A bunch of people are speaking out against Obama -- his economics, his plan, his presidency the large -- and they're holding nothing back. Jack Welch came out and basically accused somebody of doing something with the unemployment numbers. And everybody then jumped in Jack Welch chili. "Jack, what are you doing? Don't go there, man! It's not a conspiracy. They couldn't get away with that! I mean, it's not all...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 10/10/12 | Taylor Bigler
    The fancy man’s necktie manual Esquire magazine this week named actress Mila Kunis the sexiest woman alive. But in her interview with the magazine, Kunis had some decidedly non-sexy things to say about the Republican party.“The way that Republicans attack women is so offensive to me,” Kunis said. “And the way they talk about religion is offensive. I may not be a practicing Jew, but why we gotta talk about Jesus all the time? And it’s baffling to me how a poor person in Georgia can say, ‘I’m a Republican.’ Why?”Apparently, Kunis (who immigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine when she...

    A panel of three federal judges upheld a South Carolina law requiring voters to show photo identification, but delayed enforcement until next year, in a decision announced Wednesday, less than a month before this year's presidential election. In a unanimous ruling, the judges said there was no discriminatory intent behind the law, ruling that it would not diminish African-Americans' voting rights because people who face a "reasonable impediment" to getting an acceptable photo ID can still vote if they sign an affidavit.

    Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant wants a judge to halt President Obama’s new nondeportation policy, arguing that failing to send illegal immigrants back home is costing his state tens of millions of dollars a year. Mr. Bryant, a Republican, on Wednesday joined a lawsuit filed over the summer by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who said they are being forced to violate federal law by releasing illegal immigrants they know are eligible to be deported. “I believe this action by the Obama administration is unconstitutional and circumvents Congress’s authority,” said Mr. Bryant, adding that illegal immigration hurts his state. “As...

    Four Milwaukee police officers were charged Tuesday with felonies related to illegal rectal searches of suspects on the street and in police district stations over the past two years. In one case, an officer held a gun to a man's head as two others held his arms and a third put him in a choke hold while jamming a hand into his anus, purportedly searching for evidence, according to the criminal complaint. Another man bled from his rectum for several days after his encounter with police, the complaint says. The complaint lays out in graphic detail how the primary suspect,...

    I pledge to make at least 1000 calls at the GOTV phone bank between now, October 10th, and the election day for Mitt Romney. Who else is with me? BTW... My preferred candidate, Michele Bachmann lost before I had a chance to vote for her. However I cannot in good conscience not do everything I can to oppose Obama even though my home state of Oregon is not considered a battle ground. Please consider finding your local GOTV phone bank and matching my pledge. Also, see if you can get someone to go with you. Cheers.

"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," he told the Des Moines Register in an interview posted on the newspaper's website.
  • Obama campaign refers to liberal bloggers as “tinfoil hat crowd”

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/10/12 | Sean Higgins
    The Obama campaign referred to several major liberal bloggers as the “tinfoil hat crowd” in a statement to Fox News Wednesday. The campaign was responding to the cable channel’s request for a  comment on an Internet conspiracy theory many of them had promoted. Shortly after the presidential debate last week, a number of liberal bloggers including ones at Daily Kos, FireDogLake, Democratic Underground, and the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan, among others, began posting items suggesting that Mitt Romney had cheated during the debate.The theory was that, as some video of the event appeared to suggest, Romney slipped a folded piece...
