  • '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 discover ‘new organ’ hiding in plain sight

    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...
  • An Even-Weirder-Than-Usual Tardigrade Just Turned Up in a Parking Lot

    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...

    There you have it, folks. The New York Times. Equating nazi sympathizers with Conservative, blue-collar, middle America because Conservative, blue-collar America equates with hate and therefore anybody can be a nazi (yeah, we caught that), normalizing little boys in make-up (which, of course, would not appeal to any readers who may be in their pedophile demographic) and offering tips on male castration. Who-eee! They really need to lay off the spiked Eggnog over there.

    A New York City couple jumped to their deaths from the 9th-floor window of a 17-story office building because they couldn't afford health care, according to their suicide notes. The Daily Mail reports that eyewitness Perry Kim, 49, was outside the Murray Hill building at around 5:30 a.m. on Friday morning when he heard screaming and saw two people falling from the sky. The bodies of 53-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were found shortly thereafter on 33rd Street between Park and Madison avenues, according to the New York Post. Heartbreaking suicide notes were discovered in the pockets of both...

    Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has posted his support for stringent gun-control laws – a position that would be at odds with President Trump’s views. “I have always been for strong gun control laws,” Scaramucci tweeted after the December 2012 shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in which 20 kids were gunned down. In August 2012, he tweeted: “We (the USA) has 5% of the world’s population but 50% of the world’s guns. Enough is enough. It is just common sense it apply more controls.”

    Using actual New Horizons data and digital elevation models of Pluto and its largest moon Charon, mission scientists have created flyover movies that offer spectacular new perspectives of the many unusual features that were discovered and which have reshaped our views of the Pluto system – from a vantage point even closer than the spacecraft itself. This dramatic Pluto flyover begins over the highlands to the southwest of the great expanse of nitrogen ice plain informally named Sputnik Planitia. The viewer first passes over the western margin of Sputnik, where it borders the dark, cratered terrain of Cthulhu Macula, with...

During the first stop of his “The Spin Stops Here” tour in Westbury, New York, the 67-year-old former cable news ratings king told the audience about his plans for the future, including for his BillOReilly.com website, where he has been hosting podcasts since his ouster from Fox earlier this year.

    When they weren’t calling the purple, ribbon-like light Steve, the Facebook group referred to it as a “proton arc,” notes ABC News. But when a Canadian physicist and astronomer who studies aurorae looked at the photos, he suspected something more was afoot—especially since proton aurorae, which happen when protons from solar winds hit Earth's magnetic field, are usually too dark to be visible.

  • Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand. Ruth Bader Ginsberg wasn’t the only one thinking this.

    Washington Post ^ | Anna Fifield
    The prospect of a Trump presidency led to some prominent Americans — including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg — joking, or perhaps half-joking, that they would move to New Zealand. Ginsburg gave a nod to this splendid isolation during an interview with the New York Times in July. “‘Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,’” Ginsburg said her husband would be urging if Trump won the election. Billy Crystal had the same idea. “I might consider finding a nice little ranch in New Zealand,” he told Australian media earlier this year. (By the way, Billy, we...
