    “Let me just start out by saying that so much of what he just said is not right,” Hillary began. And then while 63 million people watched, a member of Musca domestica, or the common housefly, landed and perched near her eye. Trump had just wrapped up a thorough takedown of the Clintons and their abuse of women. “There’s never been anybody in the history politics in this nation that’s been so abusive to women,” he said. The camera cut to a stone-faced Bill Clinton sitting unmoving in the VIP box. “Hillary Clinton attacked those same women and attacked them...

    I just watched the debate on replay. Trump won bigly. This one wasn’t close. And keep in mind that I called Clinton the winner of the first debate, and I now endorse Gary Johnson, primarily to avoid being called an alleged enabler of alleged sex abusers and their alleged enablers. That basket of deplorables includes both Bill and Hillary Clinton (the alleged doer and the alleged cleaner-upper) plus Trump and his alleged misdeeds. Some quick reactions… 1. When the Access Hollywood tape came up, Trump dismissed it as locker room banter that he regrets. You expected that part. The persuasion...
  • US warns Syrian regime not to fly near coalition troops

    France 24 ^ | August 23, 2016 | Staff (AFP)
    The Pentagon warned the Syrian regime Monday it is prepared to shoot down planes threatening US-led coalition forces in northern Syria, but stopped short of declaring a no-fly zone. US military officials reacted furiously last week after jets from the regime of President Bashar al-Assad targeted Kurdish forces and coalition advisers fighting Islamic State jihadists around the northeastern city of Hasakeh. The US military scrambled fighters on at least two occasions to ward off the Syrian planes, but neither incident resulted in air-to-air contact.

    Over the past several months, Donald J. Trump has crisscrossed the country making dozens of campaign stops in places like Sioux City, Iowa, and Jackson, Miss., often in his sleek Cessna jet. There is just one hitch: The plane’s registration is expired. Records kept with the Federal Aviation Administration show the aircraft’s registration lapsed on Jan. 31. Laura J. Brown, a spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration, confirmed that the plane’s registration was not in good standing and said the owner had not renewed it.

    Raphium pectinatum fly was last seen 150 years ago in Surrey(Rob Wolton / Devon Wildlife Trust) ====================================================================================================================== A fly that was thought to have been extinct for more than 150 years has been spotted in Devon. The Raphium pectinatum fly was last officially noted 150 years back in Surrey on 19 July 1868. The green metallic-looking species was thought to have died out shortly after this but naturalist Rob Wolton, a member of the Devon Fly Group and the Dipterists Forum, said he spotted one alive and well in the Devon Wildlife Old Sludge Beds, a wetland reserve on the...

    Albert Einstein once told a friend that quantum mechanics doesn't hold water in his scientific world view because "physics should represent a reality in time and space, free from spooky actions at a distance." That spooky action at a distance is entanglement, a quantum phenomenon in which two particles, separated by any amount of distance, can instantaneously affect one another as if part of a unified system. Now, scientists have successfully hijacked that quantum weirdness -- doing so reliably for the first time -- to produce what many sci-fi fans have long dreamt up: teleportation. No, not beaming humans aboard...

    Josh Rogin has the exclusive at The D.B.: The White House has asked the Pentagon to draw up plans for a no-fly zone inside Syria that would be enforced by the U.S. and other countries such as France and Great Britain, two administration officials told The Daily Beast. [. . .]President Obama’s dual-track strategy of continuing to pursue a political solution to the two-year-old uprising in Syria while also preparing for more direct U.S. military involvement includes authorizing the Joint Chiefs of Staff for the first time to plan for multilateral military actions inside Syria, the two officials said.

    Here in eastern central Mississippi, the common house fly is the talk of the community. Fly paper is getting hard to buy, and plastic zip-lock bags full of water tacked to trees close to the doors of the houses, are seen everywhere. Maybe it's the wet season and the temperatures above freezing that have allowed the woods to bloom with house flies, because they're everywhere. Or maybe it's the scarceness of birds and bats, that consume the flies. Honey bees aren't as prevalent in the woods as they use to be, and black hornets are just as rare. Something is...

    President Barack Obama will fly over 9 hours tomorrow, round-trip from Washington, D.C. to Las Vegas, Nevada, just to deliver a speech on immigration, according to the president's White House schedule. With Air Force One estimated to cost $182,000 per hour in flight, Obama's trip--that is, only his travel to and from Vegas--will cost taxpayers over $1.6 million. Obama has no other public events scheduled in Las Vegas but his immigration speech. "In the morning, the President will depart the White House en route Las Vegas, Nevada. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at McCarran International Airport...

    JERUSALEM — Prophesy sites are having a field day with President Obama getting worldwide attention for sparring with a fly yesterday. News media reports document how Obama has somewhat of a larger history of attracting flies during multiple recorded interviews and speeches. Already, religious and other sites are using the headlines to point out that a biblical reference for Satan, the Semitic deity Beelzebub, literally translates from Hebrew into “lord of the flies.” As Obama yesterday nominated two new members of his second administration it was a swarming fly that stole the show. “This guy is bothering me here,” said...

    Subtitle: Not even the Secret Service could keep the fly away from Barack Obama's furrowed brow. The buzzing insect stole the show as the President announced his two new members of his second administration, cutting wild loops around the leader of the free world before landing squarely on his forehead. The official White House transcript simply reads: "This guy is bothering me here - (swatting at a fly.)" Meanwhile, the pool report which describes the President's movements throughout the day, noted that "the president spoke for about five minutes while being menaced by a house fly". It wasn't the first...

    There was a buzz at the White House on Thursday when President Barack Obama announced the nomination of two top financial regulatory officials. A large fly interrupted the president as he presented his picks to head the Securities and Exchange Commission and a watchdog for financial consumer products. Under bright television lights, the fly darted around the president's head as he spoke in the White House's ornate State Dining Room, alighting briefly on the middle of his forehead.

    I took my gun on a airplane for the first time, and it was much easier than getting it across town in Washington, D.C. The most difficult part of the process on Sunday was figuring out how to legally transport my firearm from my home in the District to Reagan National Airport in Virginia. The rest was -- surprisingly -- a breeze. I was traveling to St. Louis for a self-defense course for female journalists who cover firearm-related issues at the Winchester Co. In planning the trip, the company rep, Michael, recommended I bring my own Sig Sauer P229 so...
