    A nuclear weapons command exercise by NATO in November 1983 prompted fear in the leadership of the Soviet Union that the maneuvers were a cover for a nuclear surprise attack by the United States, triggering a series of unparalleled Soviet military re­sponses, according to a top-secret U.S. intelligence review that has just been declassified. “In 1983, we may have inadvertently placed our relations with the Soviet Union on a hair trigger,” the review concluded.
  • Maxine Waters and the burden of the ‘strong black woman’

    Anyone who doesn’t know that Rep. Maxine Waters is not to be trifled with has not been paying attention. A few weeks ago, during a congressional hearing, the California Democrat silenced the U.S. treasury secretary and gave voice to legions of exasperated women by repeating the phrase, “Reclaiming my time.” But Waters, 79, has not seemed shaken by the blowback. As she declared Tuesday night after receiving the social humanitarian award at BET’s Black Girls Rock ceremony, “I’m simply a strong black woman.” Waters, in her speech Tuesday, indicated that she does understand the challenge of being a strong black...

  • Trump tells Reuters he wants to expand nuclear arsenal, make US 'top of the pack'

    CNBC ^ | 23 FEB 16 | Jonathan Ernst
    President Donald Trump said on Thursday he wants to build up the U.S. nuclear arsenal to ensure it is at the "top of the pack," saying the United States has fallen behind in its atomic weapons capacity. In a Reuters interview, Trump also complained about Russian deployment of a cruise missile in violation of an arms control treaty and said he would raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin when and if they meet. On another front, Trump said China could solve the national security challenge posed by North Korea "very easily if they want to," ratcheting up pressure...

    This viral email from General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis about being 'too busy to read' is a must-read Just before Marine Gen. James 'Mad Dog' Mattis was getting ready to deploy with the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force to Iraq in early 2004, one of his colleagues asked him about the importance of reading for military officers who sometimes found themselves "too busy to read." The legendary general sometimes referred to as "The Warrior Monk" carted around a personal library of 6,000 books with him everywhere, and he had plenty to say on the topic. His response went viral over email,...
  • Tantrums over Trump (Tot's) ~ vanity

    11/10/2016 9:15:46 AM PST · by Arcy · 20 replies
    Following a fair-and-square presidential election night victory by Donald Trump, and the exhortation by Hillary Clinton to her supporters to "get behind our new democratically elected president, Donald Trump.", whiny, angry, distraught, basement-dwelling college-age liberals have turned instead to the streets to vent their anger over losing the election, destroying things and showing the shallow limits of their vocabulary by relying mostly on expletives to express their hurt-feelings. Their childish behavior warrants a term to describe these angry liberals: Tot's (Tantrum's over Trump).

    The German army are planning stricter checks of their soldiers as officials fear that jihadists could be using the armed forces as a way to train. The German Cabinet finalized an amendment on Wednesday to military law that will have military intelligence agency MAD soon more thoroughly scrutinize each applicant for connections to jihadist or extremist groups. “There are currently indications that Islamist circles are trying to send so-called ‘short-term soldiers’ into the Bundeswehr so that they can receive such training,” according to the explanation of the amendment, which will come into force on July 1st 2017.

    The main concern is that the human cells might migrate to the developing pig's brain and make it, in some way, more human. Pablo Ross says this is unlikely but is a key reason why the research is proceeding with such caution: "We think there is very low potential for a human brain to grow, but this is something we will be investigating."

    Full Title: The robot that BREEDS: 'Mother' machine builds and tests 'children' models to make each generation better than the last The robots were built by engineers from the University of Cambridge, lead by Dr Fumiya Iida. Dr Iida and his team designed the 'mother' robot and programmed it simply to build a robot capable of movement. From this, and without any further human intervention or computer simulation, the robot built 'children' made of between one and five plastic cubes with a small motor inside. In each of five separate experiments, the mother designed, built and tested generations of ten...

    Scientists have discovered that a particular type of enzyme can cut away antigens in blood types A and B, to make them more like Type O -- considered the 'universal' blood type, because it's the only type that can be donated to anyone without the risk of provoking a life-threatening immune response. The team, from the University of British Columbia of Canada, worked with a family of enzymes called 98 glycoside hydrolase, extracted from a strain of Streptococcus pneumoniae. Over many generations, they were able to engineer a super high-powered enzyme strain that can very effectively snip away blood antigens...

Russia now has 1,643 warheads deployed on intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and heavy bombers. The United States has 1,642, said the fact sheet released Wednesday.

    The U.S. Air Force has announced its strategy for replacing America’s Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles—which have stood alert, awaiting Armageddon, for nearly five decades. Making nukes is hard. But squeezing another multi-billion-dollar project into the Air Force’s already bulging budget is perhaps the bigger challenge. We’re talking about the Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent, an effort to replace the stockpile of Minuteman nuclear missiles Boeing built for the Pentagon back in the late 1960s.

    1960s | Mort Drucker
    I'm looking for a particular Mad Magazine from I'm pretty sure the 1960s. They did movie parodies, and the art was Mort Drucker. This issue in particular I'm looking for had a characterization drawing of Steve McQueen from the Sand Pebble, Mad's version, The Sam Pebble. McQueen teaching a coolie English. There was a close up drawing of McQueen saying 'clog' and the coolie saying 'crog' then 'c-l-o-g' and 'c-r-o-g'. It was pretty funny. I bought the issue but that is not in it. So, still looking. Just wondered if anyone hear remembers this? What issue?

    Count Mad Magazine as the first pop culture institution to target President Barack Obama's Taliban prisoner swap. It's hard to imagine any other humorist in any other medium hitting back quite so hard in the days to come. The magazine posted a fake movie advertisement for Trading Private Bergdahl, a takeoff on the Oscar-winning film Saving Private Ryan. The one-sheet features five Taliban soldiers and President Obama with this kicker: "They got five Taliban leaders. We got one deserting weasel."
