    Novel Website ^ | 4/22/14 | Matthew Harbert
    I am pleased to announce the publication of my new novel Nation Of One. Some here at FR have already read a draft version and I received some very good comments. This fictional story is one of a great discovery and great responsibility, of science and insanity. There are no aliens, weird weapons, or paranormal activities. This a great escapist, lazy day at the beach kind of novel that I know you'll enjoy. So if you have a mind to help my efforts, click on the link above and help spread the word! Thank you very much and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism...
  • What’s Wrong With This “Speeding Bullet” Picture?

    Every Joe ^ | APRIL 21, 2014 | Wil Reagan
    In case you haven’t heard, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is going to spend $50 million in 2014 to build a “nationwide grass-roots network” to motivate anti-gun voters. That’s right, he’s trying to create an organization to oppose the NRA. You can read more about Bloomberg’s efforts in the NY Times. While I think Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety campaign is ridiculous and a waste of money, right now I just want to focus on this image that was posted on what appears to be the Facebook page of the movement. Notice anything wrong with the photo? That’s right,...

    Summers Pinch Blog ^ | 4-21-14 | Summer Pinich
    A couple months ago, I wrote a blog in response to the whirlwind of media attention Miley Cyrus had been receiving. At the time, all kinds of groups were coming out to condemn or condone her sexually explicit behavior both on and off the stage. For me, it was simple: Miley Cyrus, like much of our Western culture, has bought in to a secular humanistic worldview that reduces her worth to that of an animal and so it should not be surprising that she often acts as such. You see, Cyrus “represses the truth” (Rom 1:18) that she is created...

    Orginal Title:Study of Equatorial Ridge on Iapetus Suggests Exogenic OriginYou Really Don't Prefer The Original Title, Do You? A combined team of researchers from Brown University in Rhode Island and the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Texas is suggesting in a paper they've uploaded to the preprint server arXiv, that an equatorial mountainous ridge on one of Saturn's moons has an exogenic origin. They are basing their theory on 3D models of the moon they've created and an analysis of the types of peaks present. Iapetus, the 3rd largest of Saturn's approximately 60 moons, is distinct for two reasons. One...

That's why it's worth sitting up and taking notice when he revisits one of his own posts to discuss reader objections. I'll run you through what Mike has to say and then tell you why I agree with him. This is a long post, but I hope it's engaging enough to sustain your interest all the way through, so that you'll take the time to weigh in with your own opinions.It all started with a post entitled "Why...

    A civilian cargo aircraft crashed at Bagram Air Field near the Afghan capital Kabul on Monday, killing all seven people aboard. The plane came down shortly after take-off and crashed within the boundaries of the US-run airbase, a NATO spokesperson at the base said. The Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the crash, but the coalition dismissed the claim as "false" in a statement to AP. The cause of the crash is being investigated by emergency crews, but no sign of insurgent activity in the area was spotted at the time, the statement added.

    Has seven time Tour De France champion Lance Armstrong been reduced to working in a bicycle repair shop? Not really, but it does seem that he’s gotten to the point where he’ll take any job that is offered to him. In this video, Armstrong demonstrates how to change a flat tire on a bicycle. However, it’s not a joke. It’s meant for practical instruction. The makers of the video, Outside Magazine, claim they were shocked that when they approached Armstrong about shooting the video for their website that he actually said yes. Armstrong won an unprecedented 7 Tour De France...

    Mia Marie Pope knew Obama at their Punahou high school in Honolulu, Hawaii, during the late 1970s. She knew him then by the name of Barry Soetoro. In this interview on October 31, 2013, with Reverend and Dr. James David Manning, the pastor of Atlah World Missionary in Harlem, New York, Pope says Barry “always portrayed himself as a foreign student” and “very much was within the gay community.” It was “common knowledge” that Barry “wasn’t interested in girls” but “was strictly into men.” “One of his attributes even then,” as he is now, was that Barry “was a pathological...

    Original Title:Hank Aaron Says Republicans are Like the KKK but with ‘Neckties and Starched Shirts’ Instead of Hoods Hank Aaron is a baseball icon. Forty years ago he broke Babe Ruth's all-time homerun record of 714. He ended his career with a total of 755. Barry Bonds surpassed Aaron's record with a total of 762. Since there are claims that Bonds was "juiced," the record is viewed as suspect. When Aaron was getting close to Ruth's record, the racists came out similar to the way they did when Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color barrier in 1945. They wrote nasty...

    Recent weeks have led to a fairly significant drop in stock valuations, with many expert analysts struggling to figure out exactly why it’s happening. You’ll hear them cite the weather, or market overreaction, or any number of reasons for why stocks have seen their share prices reduced and why they’ll be rebounding in the near-term. What they won’t show you on mainstream financial channels is what’s really happening behind the scenes.

Here's a list of nine places to start. ---------------------------------------------- Personally I like trying to radically simplify things. That is especially appropriate in education. What these professors spend their time doing is creating so much confusion, disinformation, propaganda, alibis, excuses, lies, etc., etc., etc., finally no ordinary citizen knows what to think about the subject anymore. And that's how the Education Establishment wins. At some point you have...

    As for the title of this article “State of Mind” is where all Preppers should start, and from there they should try to improve. What I believe is the biggest part of prepping is situational awareness, which means paying attention to your surroundings. Your surroundings include everything– your home, your neighborhood, your community, all the way out to your solar system and beyond. I've always liked to observe people in public, and you can tell which ones are not aware of their surroundings. It's the people who go to the shopping mall, park the car, go in shopping, and then...

    Earlier this week economic strategist Marc Faber warned that some time in the next 12 months the U.S. stock market will experience a crash worse than the massive drop seen in 1987. He’s not alone. Many contrarian economists seem to agree. And given the state of economic and geo-political affairs they could well be right, much to our detriment. On the domestic front, the much touted economic recovery is in significant danger of being revealed for the illusion that it really is. Nationwide home sales, for example, have dropped off in record numbers in the last few months and a...

And he swears he saw one of these rare cougar subspecies while hunting there last month.

The tawny color and the long tail were dead giveaways that this was no mere bobcat. "Florida Wildlife Commission has always said there's no documented...

After all, approximately 75 percent of all volcanoes are located in the Ring of Fire and approximately 90 percent of all global earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. But what is alarming is that the level of activity appears to be...

For the last 3 quarters of 2013, after they made the switch, that W2 statement does not list her actual employer. It lists the payroll/insurance/retirement company that handles all the paperwork, as her employer. Instead of her actual employer's ID number, there's a different...

I oppose efforts to require private sellers with minimal sales (non-dealers) to perform background checks. I am proud that gun shows are regularly conducted in Forest Park. If you really want to reduce illegal gun sales, perhaps your energy would be better focused in petitioning the BATF to end its illegal gunwalking....

    One of the things I’ve tried to drill into my children is the truism that the single biggest indicator of poverty is single motherhood. That data, incidentally, does not reflect the old-fashioned kind of single motherhood, which was the result of widowhood or abandonment. Instead, we’re talking about modern single motherhood, the kind that sees women who are deluged with birth control choices nevertheless get pregnant with boyfriends or hook-ups who feel no emotional connection or sense of economic obligation to either mother or baby.

    The most repeated prophecy in the entirety of the Gospel record is often hidden behind the definitive article. The definitive articles from the Greek text have been translated: THIS, THAT, and THE - but they all definitively define THE PROPHET who was prophesied by Moses. This is THE PROPHET the Almighty promised to send, and THAT PROPHET is the one who would speak only that which he heard from heaven. It is THIS PROPHET that we must shema (hear and obey). There is not a more repeated prophetic declaration in the Gospel record than the recognition that Yeshua is THAT...
