  • Mysterious Filament is Stretching Down Towards the Milky Way’s Supermassive Black Hole

    Mysterious Filament is Stretching Down Towards the Milky Way’s Supermassive Black Hole Article written: 23 Dec , 2017 by Matt Williams The core of the Milky Way Galaxy has always been a source of mystery and fascination to astronomers. This is due in part to the fact that our Solar System is embedded within the disk of the Milky Way – the flattened region that extends outwards from the core. This has made seeing into the bulge at the center of our galaxy rather difficult. Nevertheless, what we’ve been able to learn over the years has proven to be immensely...
  • Roy Moore tries to overturn election because black people voted

    Losing Senate candidate and accused pedophile Roy Moore wants to void the Alabama election results, citing an "unusual" number of black voters. Some people simply do not know when to give up. One such person is rejected Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore. Faced with accusations that he stalked and molested teenage girls, as well as his views that women and Muslims should be ineligible for office and that America has not been “great” since the abolition of slavery, Moore lost a race that should have been completely safe for Republicans to Democrat Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney and civil...

    This racist president is oppressing vulnerable communities of color with steady work. Here's a story you were very unlikely to see on CNN, MSNBC, in the New York Times or the Washington Post. As much as low unemployment numbers are a non-story for much of the MSM as long as there’s a Republican in the White House, one specific segment of the employment forces is making inroads rarely, if ever, seen before. Unemployment among black Americans has been hovering at or just above seven percent for past couple of months. That's still shamefully worse than the overall unemployment figure,...
  • Nolte: 7 Amazing Facts About Trump’s Economy Media Don’t Want You to Know

    Now that we are a full year into President Trump’s increasingly consequential first term, it is long past time to give him complete ownership of the American economy. If it seems odd to do so after only a year, that is due to former President Barack Obama, who never stopped blaming his predecessor for a recovery that never arrived because Obama could not stop sabotaging it with his anti-growth policies and anti-free market rhetoric. Even lying conspiracy theorists in the media and Democrat Party backed by a special prosecutor, even the gale force wind of hate and lies, have not...

    Black holes are famous for their muscle: an intense gravitational pull known to gobble up entire stars and launch streams of matter into space at almost the speed of light. It turns out the reality may not live up to the hype. In a paper published today in the journal Science, University of Florida scientists have discovered these tears in the fabric of the universe have significantly weaker magnetic fields than previously thought. A 40-mile-wide black hole 8,000 light years from Earth named V404 Cygni yielded the first precise measurements of the magnetic field that surrounds the deepest wells of...

    Wendy's said it fired an employee at the restaurant in Kennedy Township because the worker allegedly refused to serve a police officer. People started tweeting Wendy's a copy of a Facebook post from Emma Lynn. She claimed she went into Wendy’s in full uniform and that the cashier said, "I'm not taking that order." Wendy's replied to one of those tweets saying "this employee's actions do not reflect our company's values and they have since been terminated."

    Thousands of felons across Alabama have registered to vote in recent weeks, according to Pastor Kenneth Glasgow, who is heading up a statewide effort to get felons to the voting booth. Glasgow's goal is to get as many felons as possible signed up to vote before the end of the day Monday, the deadline to be able to cast a ballot in Alabama's Dec. 12 U.S. Senate special election.

    A posh Los Angeles fitness center kicked a black pastor out and banned him for life because, the pastor says, a white employee overheard him expressing support for President Donald Trump. The employee allegedly charged at the pastor, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, in a physically threatening manner — coming within inches of his face — and yelled “You support Donald Trump!” Peterson, 68, is now asking for an apology and seeking civil rights damages. The incident occurred on August 11 at Equinox Sports Club Los Angeles. The pastor’s no-good, very bad day began while he was discussing racial issues and...

    **SNIP** One Virginia political observer I spoke with earlier said this innocent explanation could well be accurate, but other theories abound, such as speculation that the Democrats deliberately excluded a black man from certain mailers in order to target voters in various regions of the state. I'm not sure I buy that -- especially since the altered flyers were distributed in moderate Northern Virginia -- but like Erickson, I am quite confident that the outrage brigades would be in full throat if Ed Gillespie's campaign had done something similar. Speaking of Gillespie, here's the second intriguing nugget out of that...
  • Black Activists Credit Trump Policies for Helping Create 17-Year Low in Black Unemployment

    Washington, D.C. - Recently released unemployment statistics showing black unemployment at a 17-year low are being applauded by members of the Project 21 black leadership network as a triumph of the "commonsense" policies and economic confidence brought about by the Trump Administration. Horace Cooper"Commonsense measures to reduce regulation are a major step in improving American economic conditions," said Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper, a former leadership aide on Capitol Hill. "Once Congress steps up to reduce taxes and repeal Obamacare, the markets and the economy will skyrocket — taking such good fortunes to black America and the rest of the...

    In August, detectors on two continents recorded gravitational wave signals from a pair of black holes colliding. This discovery, announced today, is the first observation of gravitational waves by three different detectors, marking a new era of greater insights and improved localization of cosmic events now available through globally networked gravitational-wave observatories. The collision was observed Aug. 14 at 10:30:43 a.m. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) using the two National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors located in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington, and the Virgo detector, funded by CNRS and INFN and located near Pisa, Italy.

It's in the spiral galaxy NGC 7674, and the pair of voids are separated by a distance of less than one light year.Supermassive black hole binaries are rare. Until now, astronomers have only spotted one so far, about 24 light years apart. Finding two systems is important, as it provides more evidence that supermassive black holes collide in galaxies, and are the...

    A recent article in the Chicago Tribune detailed the experiences of a black woman who obtained a concealed carry permit in Chicago. The article is surprisingly positive about her experiences. An important point is that minority women make up a significant percentage of the growth in concealed carry permits nationwide. From chicagotribune.com: Robinzine, 51, is a gun owner with a concealed carry license. Since she received her permit in late spring, she carries her firearm wherever she goes. “It's like a part of me now,” Robinzine said with the smile.Data show Robinzine is part of a burgeoning group in...

    As a scientific fact, the black race doesn’t exist. Neither does the white or Asian. There is no race gene. In the year 2000, when the scientists at the National Institutes of Health announced that they had put together a draft of the entire sequence of the human genome, the researchers unanimously declared that there is only one race -- the human race.
