    From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world's stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world's terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria's president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which...

    You might be surprised who the government considers too fat, too skinny, and just right(Photo: Getty Images) When Furious 7 set box-office records on its opening weekend, there was one story lurking in the shadows of the celebrity-industrial complex that no one wanted to talk about: The star, Vin Diesel, is overweight. And costar Dwayne Johnson? Dude’s obese. Johnson has a body-mass index, or BMI, of 34.3. Which means, according to U.S. government standards, the Rock is obese.

    Vanity post. My first, and probably only, as I am not prone to doing so. I read FR mostly on my Android phone. Recently the thread comments are showing up in an impossibly small font height. The initial post, the plea for donations, as well as some comments are in a legible size, but most comments are unreadable. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it a recent Android bug? I am logged in, and am going to take a shower while I wait to try and read the impossibly small replies from fellow FReepers.

    She said kanaka, or Native Hawaiians, oppose the project not only because the summit is a sacred cultural site but also because of political and environmental reasons.

At full build-out, the telescope would be 18 stories tall and cover about 5 acres.

    Critics of wind turbines argue vehemently that they are ugly and inefficient - a blot on the landscape and an expensive folly to boot. Efficiency has always been a strange critique given that the fuel driving turbines - wind - is free. And while electricity generated from wind may currently be more expensive than that from some fossil fuels, costs are coming down fast. Eye sores? That is simply a matter of opinion. But a new wave of turbine technologies are looking to end the debate once and for all, by making wind power cheaper, more flexible and, in...

Bouchard had just beaten Kiki Bertens 6-0, 6-3 in a second round match at Melbourne Park when she was interviewed by Ian Cohen, a Channel 7 tennis commentator, on court. Cohen asked Bouchard - one of the favourites for the first grand slam of the year - to twirl, to which the player replied: "A twirl, like a pirouette, here you go."

    Getting ships to generate smaller bubbles as they sail across the oceans could counteract the impact of climate change, a study suggests. Scientists from University of Leeds, UK, say this would create a brighter wake behind a vessel and reflect more sunlight back into space. However, it could also increase rainfall in some areas. The findings were presented at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco. This is the latest idea from the hotly debated field of geoengineering - manmade global fixes to climate change. Suggestions for reducing the amount of solar radiation absorbed by the Earth range...

    Nasa's Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) has returned its first global maps of the greenhouse gas CO2. The satellite was sent up in July to help pinpoint the key locations on the Earth's surface where carbon dioxide is being emitted and absorbed. This should help scientists better understand how human activities are influencing the climate. The new maps contain only a few weeks of data in October and November, but demonstrate the promise of the mission. Clearly evident within the charts is the banding effect that describes how emitted gases are mixed by winds along latitudes rather than across them. Also...

Invoking the apparations of Our Lady Queen of Higher Criticism, the Pope stated: While the ordinary magisterium from the very day of the Church's founding 1,981 years ago this past April has been most clear and constant, nevertheless we are most grieved at the dissemination of the "Errors of Alabama,"...
