  • Russia Undermining International Order, Says U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter

    The Wall Street Jurnal ^ | September 7, 2016 | Paul Sonne
    U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter accused Russia of undermining the international order and said Washington wouldn’t ignore “efforts to interfere with our democratic processes.” Mr. Carter didn’t directly address accusations of Russian-sponsored hacking of U.S. political institutions, including the Democratic National Committee. But his comments came as an oblique warning to the Kremlin on the matter, as he called out Russia on what he described as its attempts to undermine the international order. “We don’t seek an enemy in Russia,” Mr. Carter said in a speech to students at the University of Oxford in the U.K. “But make no...

    For instance, just the other day 50 so-called Republicans claiming to be so-called national security experts signed a letter predicting that Trump would be the worst president in history when it comes to keeping America safe. Huh? Let me get this clear. We have a current president and a presidential wannabe who have been instrumental in rolling out the red carpet for Russia in the Middle East; given rise to ISIS, simultaneously making a mockery of the money and lives we had previously sacrificed in Iraq; handed over $1.9 billion to Iran ($400 million of it in the form of...

    Much divides the country when it comes to the issue of gun violence. That’s why it is so important to find common ground so that, together, all Americans can work to reduce the damage that guns cause in our society. A new initiative starting this week in New Mexico has the potential to bring people together toward a common goal — making people safer without fighting over whether assault weapons should be banned or the meaning of the Second Amendment. Called Guns to Gardens, the movement organized by New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence simply helps people dispose of unwanted...

Talking to Savannah Guthrie about The Shallows, she asserted, “Because of global warming, sharks are pushed closer to shore. And she's attacked and you think of a shark attack being in the deep ocean, but it’s almost scarier when shore is right there.” SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: Well, set the scene for us a little bit. We kind of did. Nancy is your character. She's brave. She's a medical student. So, we know she's resourceful.

    This article covered assault weapons specifically, but I still believe wholeheartedly that the much broader problem with gun violence requires us to heavily fund mental healthcare in this country, and with deep pockets. A majority of all gun deaths are still suicides, or murder-suicides. While we must do something to prevent the string of massacres we’ve seen with assault rifles over the past few years, we’d be sorely mistaken not to address the grave mental health problem in our country. This is a separate issue from domestic terrorism, but is definitely where this discussion needs to go.

Donohue used satellite images and found the Earth is greening, which seemingly runs counter to arguments made by environmentalist activist that global warming is causing mass droughts and tree and plant death. “Lots of papers have shown an average increase in vegetation across the globe, and there is a lot of speculation about what’s causing that,” Donohue noted a press release.

From 2012 to 2014, 31 percent of blacks were concerned about race in America. In the past two years, that number has jumped to 53 percent. For whites, the number of those concerned has risen from 14 to 27 percent.

His results can be seen here, and they are shocking. Many of the adults he spoke to in these Jay Leno-style interviews had no clue. One lady even offered up Lincoln as the answer. He asked, “Lincoln, DC?” She then realized her error and said, “Washington, DC.” An older gentleman answered the question correctly,...

The Student Union Assembly at UC Santa Cruz voted last week to divest from five companies that the students say are complicit in human rights violations by making the equipment used by the Israeli military. The resolution called for UCSC to divest from Hewlett Packard (HP), for example, because “HP systems are installed in Israeli military checkpoints.” General Electric, Caterpillar, Lockheed Martin, and Elbit were...

    .....Sadly, Freddy wasn’t built for suburban life. He snarled traffic with his insouciant strolls and attacked motorcycles with unexplained ferocity. An increasing menace to motorists, the beloved bird was shot by police last week, his life tragically cut short by his full-throttle lifestyle and a raft of complaints - including one from a motorcyclist who was forced into oncoming traffic after a head-on attack.

    Earlier this week, the DUmmies were left with EGG on their collective faces when it turned out that their hero, Jessie MacBeth, who confessed to committing war crimes in Iraq was a Fake Army Ranger. After having to gorge on crow, the DUmmies are now back and essentially saying that the fact he was fake doesn't matter because our troops are committing war crimes despite the LACK of evidence to back up this assertion as you can see in the THREAD titled, "Does anyone doubt that certain G.I.'s are committing war crimes?" Yes, "Fake but Accurate" seems to be...

    Michele Naar-Obed knows she will not stop the war in Iraq by walking the streets of Baghdad, unarmed and unguarded, calling for an end to the violence, but she considers it her duty to try. She is 49 years old, a mother, a wife, a pacifist who can't stand to be passive. Soldiers put their lives on the line for their country; she will risk hers too, in pursuit of peace. Four of her colleagues in the pacifist movement were kidnapped in Baghdad late last month. The men — fellow members of Christian Peacemaker Teams — have been threatened with...

    AN INCREASING number of middle-aged women are suffering from potentially life-threatening eating disorders as they strive to emulate the characters of Desperate Housewives, the cult American television series, according to a leading eating-disorder specialist. Since the show, starring petite Teri Hatcher and her equally slim co-stars, became a hit, eating disorder clinics across the UK have seen an increase in older women suffering from anorexia and bulimia. Clinics in Scotland report a fourfold increase in the number of women aged between 30 and 50 seeking treatment for anorexia. Experts have said a "Desperate Housewives syndrome" has caused a significant rise...

    An attempt by two men from northern Minnesota to cross the Arctic Ocean to call attention to global warming ended this morning because of poor weather conditions. Lonnie Dupre, 43, and Eric Larsen, 33, were forced to abandon their planned 100-day, 1,200-mile trek after encountering unexpectedly heavy snow storms, strong winds and unusual ice conditions, according to Jane Kochersperger, a media officer with the environmental group Greenpeace, which co-sponsored the trip
