    Can a society “progress” too far? For one UK woman, the answer is a resounding, “Yes.” She learned the hard way that when a society champions itself as “progressive,” there are serious consequences. And those consequences can backfire at any given moment. One woman went in for a very private and personal cervical smear test and specifically asked for a female NHS nurse to administer the exam. What she got, however, was something else entirely. She explained that the nurse “had an obviously male appearance … close-cropped hair, a … large number of tattoos and facial stubble.” The patient then...

    NPR ^ | October 7, 2016
    Matt Drudge, author of the conservative media site drudgereport.com, is being ridiculed over his tweets in advance of Hurricane Matthew's arrival in Florida. Thursday afternoon and early Friday morning the conservative firebrand took to Twitter to imply that the storm might not be as powerful as government officials say it is. First he tweeted: "The deplorables are starting to wonder if govt has been lying to them about Hurricane Matthew intensity to make exaggerated point on climate." Drudge was apparently referring to Hillary Clinton's description of some of Donald Trump's supporters as "deplorables." Just a few minutes later, Drudge wrote:...

    Sorry if I'm not allowed to post this sort of thread, but I'd rather ask direct questions than interpret answers to other questions an apply them to my own. I'm from the UK and for school work over the holidays I've got to find and explain/counter arguments for and against a political issue from another country, and I know that healthcare reform is a big one in America at the moment so I picked the easy one. I've had good experiences with our NHS, and without it I would either be dead or my family would be deeply in debt...

    There is technical information in the National Hurricane Center FORECAST Discussion on Hurricanes/Tropical Storms/Tropical Depressions.

Sapping the strenght of a Hurricane -- especially for the people in the path of the Hurricane -- is a good thing. The High Pressure System over Texas (simply put -- a lot of lot air and dryness) is keeping the Northern, NorthWestern, and Western side...

    NEW YORK, July 18 (Reuters) - The low-pressure system in the eastern Caribbean Sea north of Curacao and Aruba could become a tropical depression during the next day or two as it moves toward the oil producing U.S. Gulf Coast over the next several days, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its 2 a.m. EDT (0600 GMT) advisory Friday. Most weather models predict the system will cross the Caribbean, hit Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and reach the northern Gulf of Mexico in about five days. It is too soon to tell where the system will make landfall, but the...
