    [Catholic Caucus] ‘Sacrilegious’ to distribute Eucharist with gloves: Vatican theologian 'Who would bring a plate of soup to the table with latex gloves? It would create suspicion in the eaters.' May 27, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Distributing Holy Communion with gloves amid the coronavirus pandemic is “sacrilegious,” according to Msgr. Nicola Bux, a theologian who worked as a consultor to the Vatican for many years. While many dioceses across the world are slowly beginning to have some faithful present for public Masses again, the question of the sanitary distribution and reception of the Eucharist has been raised. In his short statement...

    Coronavirus patients in northeastern China are reportedly taking longer to recover from the virus and to exhibit symptoms than patients from the original outbreak in Wuhan, one of China’s top doctors told state TV Tuesday. Dr. Qiu Haibo, who is taking care of patients in the northeast, said the more than two-week incubation period is making it hard to keep the virus from spreading and could show the virus is changing, Bloomberg reported. Patients in the northeast also mostly have lung damage rather than in their heart, kidney and stomach as in Wuhan. At least 46 cases have popped up...

  • Warren’s epic flop in New Hampshire leaves her no path to the Democratic nomination

    Elizabeth Warren admitted defeat in New Hampshire Tuesday night. She claimed to be still plotting a path forward for her presidential campaign, but, at this point, it has nowhere left to go. With results still coming in, MSNBC has projected that Warren will come out of the primary with zero delegates. At best, she'll be in a distant fourth, well behind Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. This was a disastrous night for Warren on top of an already lackluster showing in Iowa last week.

    Science Alert ^ | 10/17/19 | Peter Dockrill
    A pair of mathematicians from Australia and France have devised an alternative way to multiply numbers together, while solving an algorithmic puzzle that has perplexed some of the greatest math minds for almost half a century. For most of us, the way we multiply relatively small numbers is by remembering our times tables – an incredibly handy aid first pioneered by the Babylonians some 4,000 years ago. But what if the numbers get bigger? Well, if the figures get unwieldy – and assuming we don't have a calculator or computer, of course – most of us would then turn to...
  • Marianne Williamson suggests using ‘the power of the mind’ to change Hurricane Dorian’s course

    Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson on Wednesday offered an un­or­tho­dox suggestion for dealing with Hurricane Dorian: using “the power of the mind” to will the storm elsewhere. Dorian has largely spared Florida the worst of its wrath but is forecast to make a much closer approach to the U.S. coastline between late Wednesday and Thursday, with Georgia and the Carolinas in its sights. The storm has already devastated much of the Bahamas, where the official death count stands at seven but is expected to rise as authorities reach damaged areas. Nearly three out of every four homes on Grand Bahama...

In the 75 minutes of the meeting—which Slate obtained a recording of, and of which a lightly condensed and edited transcript appears below—Baquet and the paper’s other leadership tried to resolve a tumultuous week for the paper, one marked by a reader revolt against a front-page headline and a separate Twitter meltdown by Jonathan Weisman, a top editor in the Washington bureau. On Tuesday, the Times announced it was demoting Weisman from deputy editor because of his...

    Sen. Mike Lee didn’t quite bring a snowball onto the Senate floor. But the Utah Republican’s prop-filled speech Tuesday mocking the proposed Green New Deal resolution on addressing climate change elicited similar incredulous reactions from Democrats. Lee’s speech — in which the conservative Mormon argued, seemingly genuinely, that the “real solution to climate change” was to have more children — included a dramatic portrait of former President Ronald Reagan firing a machine gun while on the back of a velociraptor, photos of Star Wars characters and Aquaman, and frames from the sci-fi disaster movie “Sharknado.”

Before I had even arrived, I was attacked as a racist, a sexist and a bigot, and one professor sent out a tweet urging students to disrupt my talk.

  • 'Certain death' for Tommy Robinson in new prison

    Activist Robinson transferred yesterday to Onley Prison with high Muslim majority, known as violent prison. Tens of thousands demonstrate. Anti-Muslim takeover activist Tommy Robinson was jailed last month for a “breach of the peace” while live-streaming a trial involving a Muslim rape gang outside Leeds Crown Court. He was sentenced to 13 months in prison for interfering with court proceedings. At first he was transferred to a prison that was considered relatively safe. However, his transfer to Onley means "certain death", say observers. Robinson’s manager Caolan Robertson said a large majority of the prison population of Onley is Muslim. Various...

    Scientists say they’ve discovered a new organ — possibly the human body’s largest — and it was hiding in plain sight, according to a new study. The so-called interstitium is an interconnected system of tiny fluid-filled cavities throughout the entire body that acts as a “highway” for our internal water supply, study co-author Dr. Neil Theise told LiveScience.com. The findings were published in the journal Scientific Reports Tuesday. The human body is 60 percent water, and while two-thirds of that liquid remains inside cells, the remaining water — called interstitial fluid — is free to move throughout cavities inside the...

    A newfound species of tardigrade, or "water bear," with tendril-festooned eggs has been discovered in the parking lot of an apartment building in Japan. The newfound tardigrade, Macrobiotus shonaicus, is the 168th species of this sturdy micro-animal ever discovered in Japan. Tardigrades are famous for their toughness: They can survive in extreme cold (down to minus 328 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 200 Celsius), extreme heat (more than 300 degrees F, or 149 degrees C), and even the unrelenting radiation and vacuum of space, as one 2008 study reported. They're bizarre and adorable at the same time, with eight legs on...

  • Guten Rutsch!

    01/01/2018 4:04:22 AM PST · by SandRat · 12 replies
    If you’ve ever been in Germany between Christmas and New Year’s, you have without a doubt heard somebody wishing you a “Guten Rutsch!” It literally means a “good slide” and people use it to wish you a Happy New Year. There’s various ideas how the “good slide” expression came about with some people theorizing it originates in the Yiddish word “rosch” and Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Others argue that it stems from the original meaning for Rutsch, a journey. Personally, I always figured with the winter weather and amount of black ice we get in Germany it makes...
