    CBS Minnesota ^ | May 2, 2016 | Susan-Elizabeth Littlefield
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s something you’ve likely seen in the movies — it’s something you may not know is also happening in real life. People are getting chips implanted into their hands in an effort to make daily life a little bit easier. From opening doors to making contacts to sending emails — a growing group of people are all-in. People here in the Twin Cities are embracing the extra-personal technology. Set in the far-off year of 2021 is the 1995 film “Johnny Mneumonic.” A movie that inspired a boy named Tim Shank, growing up in Indiana. --snip-- But experiments...

    "You didn't look like a girl when I saw you enter," man saysA North Texas woman said she was followed into a public restroom at a hospital by a man who didn't believe she was female. Jessica Rush said it happened last Thursday while she was being treated for an injured arm at Baylor Medical Center in Frisco. Rush, who is from The Colony, said she was about to enter a stall when she noticed a man following her into the restroom. "It scared me at first," said Rush.

  • Men have gender changes because women have won battle of sexes - Fay Weldon

    The Telegraph ^ | April 3, 3026 | Tom Whitehead
    Women have won the battle of the sexes to such an extent that men are now having sex changes to be them, according to outspoken author Fay Weldon. But the 84-year-old said men do more work and invent things and an all-woman society would have resulted in “lots of nice cushions” and no television. Ms Weldon risked further outrage by claiming women who are anorexic are just “just girls who don’t want to grow up” and have periods. The comments come after fellow author Ian McEwan last week attacked the idea of people choosing their identity “off the shelf” and...

In a subpoena issued in March, the office of USVI attorney general Claude Walker demanded from Exxon Mobil copies of communications between the oil company and 90 different political and policy organizations “and any other organizations engaged in research or advocacy concerning Climate Change or policies.”

One person that stands out is Lebanese-American Nedal Tamer, who immigrated to the United States from Lebanon in 1997, and is a full-on Trump supporter. “If you love this country [USA], then you support this man.

    A group of undergraduate professors at George Mason University are leading the charge to oppose renaming the law school after late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. A public Virginia university, GMU received a $30,000,000 pledge to rename the law school. However, the George Mason faculty senate -- which is not a law school body -- passed a resolution opposing the name change. The reasons the GMU faculty senate opposed the well-funded name change included the following: The memorializing of a Supreme Court Justice who was a significant contributor to the polarized climate in this country that runs counter to...

The real estate mogul has 56 percent support, more than doubling his advantage over Ted Cruz, who sits at 22 percent. John Kasich rounds out the survey with 14 percent support. An additional 7 percent remain undecided. Trump is the only Republican candidate with any mathematical path to securing the GOP nomination outright, though Cruz and Kasich are hoping to emerge as the nominee at a contested convention in July should Trump fall short of the requisite 1,237 delegates.

    Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution during the 1960s was a disastrous failure and it created a capitalist society in rural China, noted one professor at an event held by the Cato Institute. Humanities professor Frank Dikotter, who works at the University of Hong Kong, noted that capitalism sprang up from the ashes of the Cultural Revolution, where millions were killed by Mao's communist regime. The Cultural Revolution didn't spontaneously appear, Dikotter said, as others believe. In fact, the Cultural Revolution began in 1962 until 1966, where a "socialist education campaign enforced by Mao" took place in Chinese schools. Dikotter pointed out,...

    For my money, San Francisco is the most beautiful city in America. But that hardly matters to residents fighting sky high housing costs, traffic gridlock, and a quality of life that has been declining in recent years. A survey by the Bay Area Council reveals that 34% of residents would leave the city if they could. Surprisingly, those who have moved to the city in the last 5 years are more likely to look for greener pastures.

Let’s start with the fact that the design features a symbol from a restroom door. Just as the Clinton slogan unintentionally linked LOVE and TRUMP, the restroom symbol literally makes your brain associate Clinton with…a toilet.

    Politicians describe Social Security as "the third rail," meaning that enacting any benefit cuts will kill them politically. But this is precisely what they voted to do under the Bipartisan Budget Bill of 2015. The bill reduced the benefits of married couples and divorcees who were younger than 62 as of Jan. 2 by up to $60,000. Even $25,000 is a lot of money for most workers, given that the median household income is about $50,000. The new law prevents most people who reach age 66 from providing spousal benefits to their spouse or children while letting their own retirement...

    The Black Lives Matter movement has brought the challenges facing black America to the fore, and introduced racially conscious quality-of-life questions into the national debate. How are black residents in America's cities faring? And how are those cities doing in meeting the aspirations of their black residents, judged especially by the ultimate barometer: whether blacks choose to move to these cities, or stay in them? Though results vary to some extent, the broad trend is clear: West Coast progressive enclaves are either seeing an exodus of blacks or are failing to attract them.

    (CNSNews.com) -- Dr. Paul R. McHugh, the former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry, said that transgenderism is a “mental disorder” that merits treatment, that sex change is “biologically impossible,” and that people who promote sexual reassignment surgery are collaborating with and promoting a mental disorder. Dr. McHugh, the author of six books and at least 125 peer-reviewed medical articles, made his remarks in a recent commentary in the Wall Street Journal, where he explained that transgender surgery is not the solution for people who suffer a “disorder of ‘assumption’” – the notion...

    Within 24 hours of the Orthodox Church celebrating Easter, three of its buildings around the world have gone up in flames.

Less than 12 hours after the end of the Easter service, the Rockdale church, parts of which have been standing since the 1890s, was destroyed. ...

    Europe's conservative, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim tide is rising and spreading at an accelerating pace from nation to nation. First it was the unprecedented ascent and surge in the polls of France's National Front, whose Marine Le Pen has become the leading contender in next year's presidential elections; then there was Austria whose Freedom Party swept the competition in last weekend's first round of the local presidential elections; then over the weekend we learned that Germany's brand new (less than three years old) Alternative for Germany (AfD) party has not only adopted an "Anti-Islam manifesto", stating that "Muslims are no longer...

    Chris Hayes has established a new standard. It is henceforth fair game to say on national TV of any parent who has spanked his child that such parent "hits his kids." Hayes employed the inflammatory formulation on his MSNBC show this evening. Hayes played a clip of a child in a Cruz audience telling him "you suck" and Cruz responding "in my household, when a child behaves that way, they get a spanking." Proclaimed Hayes portentously: "I should note it's a matter of public record by Ted Cruz that he hits his kids." Okay then, so Hayes has equated a...
