    One of the first things our nation’s founders did was to establish schools and colleges. They believed that in order to pass the founding ideals to future generations, they needed institutions of higher learning to do it. For example, those who conceived and built Harvard wanted their ideological legacy to continue: “One of the next things we longed for, and looked after was to advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity; dreading to leave an illiterate Ministry to the Churches, when our present Ministers shall lie in the Dust.” Why an educated ministry? Ministers were often the only source of...

    Anchorage Daily News ^ | December 1, 2012 | KYLE HOPKINS
    A mysterious blob of frozen soil, rocks and trees is creeping toward the Dalton Highway, threatening to block the haul road that serves as a lifeline for Alaska's oil and gas industry. It could happen as soon as end of the decade. University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers who have been studying the slow-moving landslide just south of the Brooks Range since 2008 say it is crawling closer to the highway every day. The scientists suspect climate change may have caused the 300-foot-wide finger of debris -- once thought to be motionless -- to gain speed as it slides toward the...

    'Medals belonging to an unsung war hero who saved countless lives by defusing 200 bombs in 60 days are expected to fetch £25,000 when they go under the hammer at auction this week. The incredible story of how Squadron Leader Wilson Charlton showed nerves of steel and 'unfailing courage' in his death-defying work, which saw him deal with an average of three live bombs a day, came to light after his George Cross and five other medals were put up for sale. The RAF bomb disposal expert was awarded the prestigious George Cross after working tirelessly day and night to...

    Amid all the political and media hoopla about the "fiscal cliff" crisis, there are a few facts that are worth noting. First of all, despite all the melodrama about raising taxes on "the rich," even if that is done it will scarcely make a dent in the government's financial problems. Raising the tax rates on everybody in the top two percent will not get enough additional tax revenue to run the government for ten days. And what will the government do to pay for the other 355 days in the year? All the political angst and moral melodrama about getting...

    Researchers at the University of Waterloo, Canada, have built the world’s most sophisticated artificial brain to date. Known as ‘Spaun’, (short for Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network), the model is able to simulate complex brain behaviour and is capable of thinking remembering, seeing and interacting with its environment using a mechanical arm. Although Spaun currently exists in the simulated world inside a computer, it is one of the most advanced models ever created by scientists to understand how the human brain functions. Unlike previous brain models, such as the 'million processor computer', which feature large networks of neurons with generally...

The 11-day conference, seeking to update codes last reviewed when the Web was virtually unknown, highlights the fundamental shift from tightly managed telecommunications networks to the borderless sweep of the Internet.

    One of the big advantages that President Obama has, as he plays "chicken" with the Congressional Republicans along the "fiscal cliff," is that Obama is a master of the plausible lie, which will never be exposed by the mainstream media— nor, apparently, by the Republicans. A key lie that has been repeated over and over, largely unanswered, is that President Bush's "tax cuts for the rich" cost the government so much lost tax revenue that this added to the budget deficit— so that the government cannot afford to allow the cost of letting the Bush tax rates continue for "the...

    Savita Halappanavar was 17 weeks pregnant while in Ireland with her husband. After being hospitalized at the University Hospital Galway, doctors determined that she was miscarrying her child and had a serious blood disorder called septicemia. As most people have heard by now, her story tragically ended on October 28. When Savita died, the world was unprepared for what was about to unfold. Her story spread like wildfire. But what spread so quickly was a twisted version of her story. Here are the top three things you should know about what happened. 1. Abortion would not have saved Savita’s life....

    The main desire of the Council was to reinvigorate the Church’s mission of promoting a fully human life in Jesus Christ.As far as I know, no participant in the Second Vatican Council summed up its goals or described its spirit as addressing the question whether God’s truth and love are effective, that is, whether they have the power to steer men on a course conforming to their dignity. Nevertheless, the overarching question that the Council did address leads to this question. For the Council Fathers the question was: “Ecclesia, quid dicis de te ipsa?

    At times, it has seemed that Republican lawmakers eyeing a fiscal compromise with President Obama were moving closer to a public split with Grover Norquist, author of the famous no-new- taxes pledge that has defined conservative politics for decades. Yet Norquist, whose influence in the conservative movement spans well beyond his well-known fixation on taxes, remains an unwavering force in the GOP debate — and even some of the most prominent lawmakers publicly flirting with a break from Norquist have assured him in private that they remain loyal soldiers in the anti-tax cause. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), for example, might...

    Being just weeks away from reaching our debt ceiling and with frightening talk about a fiscal cliff, there's much sympathy in Washington for tax increases. Even conservatives are wavering. A few Republicans have dumped their anti-tax pledges, and former Nixon official-turned-actor Ben Stein favors taxing the wealthy. He says that we can't cut our way to a balanced budget and insists that the revenue end must be addressed. But I have news for him: he'll have a better chance finding Ferris Bueller on his day off than he will locating fiscal sanity through tax increases.

    It’s hard to be honest in politics. Perhaps that has been Gov. Mitt Romney’s real problem all along. Romney’s candor came out in a recent conference call that was reported by the New York Times in which he said that President Obama offered free “gifts” to both illegal aliens and American citizens. Romney’s observation about rewarding illegal aliens with citizenship and giving free benefits to people exploiting the system is not the same as criticizing minorities—but for decades the Left has manipulatively used racism, sexism and discrimination to intimidate the Republican Party into cowering into the aimless, weak institution that...

    Scientists at the Wake Forest University have created a new type of light bulb that promises to be just as efficient as LED equivalents, but without any of the drawbacks. The new field-induced polymer electroluminescent bulbs — FIPEL for short — produce light when an electric current is passed through the nano-engineered plastic layers. The team says that the new type of bulbs are malleable, allowing them to take any shape like compact fluorescent lamps. They also won’t shatter like traditional bulbs, nor will they generate the same hum or flicker. The inventor of FIPEL, Dr David Carroll, believes that...

    Are Democratic lawmakers are invested in doing NOTHING about the fiscal cliff? This is a frightening idea, especially when Democrats are only calling for tax increases and not facing escalating entitlement costs. Are our lawmakers, particularly Democrats, so invested in certain issues that they have no reason to solve the problems? One brave Hispanic Republican noted this on NPR yesterday: the Democrats have no reason to solve the immigration problem because the issue keeps getting them re-elected. When re-elected, they get outstanding perks and privileges, far beyond the reach of most voters, and our fair representatives naturally resist reducing those...

    There is bipartisan opposition in Washington to sequestration, the automatic spending cuts mandated by last year's Budget Control Act — passed, inconveniently enough, by many of the same people who now rail against it. But the cuts are modest: over the next decade, the federal government will spend about $44 trillion with sequestration, $45 trillion without. And few people are considering the beneficial effects that even those modest cuts could have, both in reducing the nation's debt, and in stimulating economic activity. In truth, however, neither Democrats nor Republicans are committed to reducing government spending, and both sides have chosen...

    Everybody knew that Israel's move to build new settlements in the previously off-limits area outside Jerusalem known as E1 would anger friends and enemies alike. But few probably guessed that it would send European ambassadors fleeing the country. According to a new report from Haaretz, that's exactly what the diplomats from France and Britain are thinking. More specifically, the Haaretz report cites senior European diplomats who say that the two countries are considering "the unprecedented step of recalling their ambassadors." One told the paper, "This time it won't just be a condemnation, there will be real action taken against Israel."

Congress would recess for the holidays and the president would face a big battle early in the year over the debt ceiling. Two senior Republican elected officials tell...

    In 2010, President Barack Obama highlighted A123 Systems during a White House press conference saying, "This is what's possible in a green energy economy." The president's words have been prophetic, but not in the way he envisioned. A123 Systems has become a study in government-subsidized failure. Solyndra, a California solar panel company that received $535 million in federal aid and then went bankrupt, has been the poster child for green-energy failures. However, A123 Systems, which has its headquarters in Massachusetts but extensive automotive operations in Michigan, has its own list of issues.
