    01/07/2018 3:09:32 PM PST · by SMGFan · 23 replies
    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is offering a teaching session later this month that's tied to a timely topic of late: nuclear war. The Jan. 16 event, which the CDC has titled "Public Health Response to a Nuclear Detonation," comes at a time when continued tensions between the U.S. and North Korea over the Hermit Kingdom's nuclear pursuits are running particularly hot. ------------------- Federal, state and local agencies would lead immediate responses to nuclear activity, the CDC says. Yet Stat News reports the session is meant to target public health professionals like doctors, nurses, pharmacists and even...

    The media widely covered General Allen’s attack on Trump at the DNC and treated him as an apolitical national security expert. It neglected to mention that he works at Brookings or that the president of the Brookings Institution is Strobe Talbott. Talbott is an old friend of the Clintons. He got into government through them and worked for them as Deputy Secretary of State. He owes his current prominence largely to his Clinton connections. When Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, Talbott was one of the few to have close access to her. He is not only a political ally,...

  • Katie Pavlich: Why is Obama ignoring the experts on illegal immigration?

    11/19/2014 12:37:06 PM PST · by upchuck · 25 replies ^ | November 17, 2014 | Katie Pavlich
    There are some important voices that have been starkly absent as President Obama gets ready to issue an executive order that would usurp federal immigration law in the coming days. “We’re all pretty much ticked,” a Border Patrol source told me shortly after details of the president’s plans hit the press last week. Obama has claimed inaction from Congress has given him no choice in issuing executive action on this matter immediately, but the little praise he has given Congress went to the Senate after it passed the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive immigration bill in summer 2013. The problem? That...

    90 Percent of Checkout Food Options Unhealthy; 60 Percent of Drink Options Sugar-Sweetened A study of checkout aisles at a wide variety of supermarket and non-food retailers found that 90 percent of food options for sale were for candy, energy bars, chips, cookies, and other junk foods, and 60 percent of the beverage options were for soda and other sugar-sweetened beverages. Researchers at the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public characterized only eight percent of food items as "healthier," and just two percent of foods as actually "healthy," such as nuts and fruit. Their assessment of drinks for sale...

    They say I need to figure out what my readers want to read, and write that.  They say I’m supposed to get inside your heads and touch your emotions, hopes and fears.  They. You know, the experts.  People who know.  They say a lot of things.  Trouble is, I don’t listen to them.  Plus, my mind doesn’t work the same way as most people.  Really, it doesn’t. One of my few skills is writing computer programs.  I’ve been coding since I was 13, and that would warm Bill Gates’ heart, since coding is now considered a basic survival skill.  When...

    Using data from the CIA Factbook, we labeled every country in the world by its highest valued export, a.k.a. the commodity that makes the country the most money in the global market. Click on any of the maps below to see an enlarged version. Unsurprisingly, much of the world runs on oil, particularly the Middle East and Central Asia. Europe is the world's workshop, where most of the machinery and motor vehicles are made, from optical instruments to BMWs. Latin America brings a blend of food products and oil to the trading table. Asia is the world's manufacturing center, where...

    The hollowness at the core of 21st century liberal politics stands out against the backdrop of the big climate change ... would "debate" be the word? Not likely. The air fills with assumptions, generated by the media sources that channel most political assumptions. Among these: The people will believe every word from on high, duly knuckling our foreheads. As President Obama himself put it, referring to a recent National Climate Assessment report: "Earlier this week I issued ...

    Thanks for watching that YouTube video! That will be 50 cents, please. Sound unrealistic? It's actually a distinct possibility, after a Federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down an FCC ruling meant to prevent an Internet service provider -- the company you pay for online access -- from prioritizing some website traffic over others. And because that rule was wiped off the books, those ISPs are suddenly able to do just that. With service providers suddenly able to charge based on the type of content you watch or the sites you visit, it's easy to imagine a system like that...

    (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's site is riddled with security flaws that put user data of millions of people at risk and it should be shut down until fixed, several technology experts warned lawmakers on Tuesday. The testimony at a congressional hearing could increase concerns among many Americans about Obama's healthcare overhaul, popularly known as Obamacare. Opinion polls show the botched rollout of the online marketplace for health insurance policies has hurt the popularity of the effort.

    WASHINGTON – The $93 million website launched to process customers through the new ObamaCare marketplace may experience significant technical glitches for months, computer software experts told “I wouldn’t rule out that possibility,” said George Edwards, a computer scientist and professor at the University of Southern California. It all depends on when they identify the bugs, where they are, and if they can be resolved easily, he said -- all while the site is running and open to millions of customers. “[It's] like trying to repair a car while someone is driving it,” he told

    **SNIP** ‘Global COOLING!’ In a recent story from the UK’s Mail on Sunday, David Rose made the claim that Earth was now heading toward global cooling with the headline “And now it’s global COOLING! Record return of Arctic ice cap as it grows by 60% in a year.” In 2012, a satellite image of the Arctic ice sheet showed the lowest extent of sea ice on record. In 2013, however, the sea ice saw a rebound, measuring 6.09 million square kilometres – still 1.13 million kilometres below the 1981 to 2010 average. So while 2013 was indeed an increase, it...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — If you're confused about the Affordable Care Act, you won't get any answers from central Florida health departments. That's because people who are hired to answer your questions won't be allowed to work there. Critics told Channel 9's Mark Joyella it's just another way Gov. Rick Scott is blocking the president's plan for national health care. Change is confusing, and the government wants the Affordable Care Act to come with plenty of help. When the online health care marketplace opens in October, you'll be able to go to a CVS drugstore and find a trained expert who...

    WASHINGTON—An all-star panel of retired military officers, intelligence agents, and national security experts officially launched the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi with an all-day conference Monday in Washington. The event, organized by Accuracy in Media, took place at the Heritage Foundation and included panel discussions, public questions, and a speech from Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va. The 13-member commission finished with a closed door session to discuss its sole purpose: to find the truth about the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Speakers charged members of both political parties with incompetence...

    Expected Western strikes on Syria will target the military, intelligence services and possibly sites with symbolic regime links, but will not alter the balance of power in the country, experts say. The raids, if they go ahead, would be aimed at punishing President Bashar al-Assad's regime and sending him a message rather than wiping out his military capacity and handing the rebels a decisive advantage, they say. "Specific targets should include the Damascus-area headquarters, barracks and support facilities of the fourth and Republican Guard armoured divisions, two units heavily involved in the bombardment of civilian areas," said Jeffrey White of...

    The White House has kicked off several federal projects aimed at influencing how Americans react to certain policy reforms, going so far as to solicit behavior experts to join a British-style “Behavioral Insights Team” to help nudge voters into accepting key political programs. “Behavioral sciences can be used to help design public policies that work better, cost less and help people to achieve their goals,” a document on the government program states, Fox News reported. The document, emailed by White House senior adviser Maya Shankar and obtained by Fox News, also seeks applicants to join the federal government’s behavior modification...

    Even Obama's experts say his gun control policies won't work. According to an internal Department of Justice memorandum, a gun ban, like the one being debated right now in Congress, will not work without a mandatory gun buyback, and "universal" background checks will not work without requiring gun registration. Call Congress at 202-224-3121 and tell them to reject President Obama's gun control agenda -- and to get serious about prosecuting criminals and fixing our broken mental health system.
