  • Why Bloomberg’s 2015 ‘Stop and Frisk’ remarks are riddled with inaccuracies

    With President Donald Trump threatening to make real inroads into the black vote, will Democrats dare to nominate a candidate who has made racially biased statements? It is one thing to say that minorities commit crime at relatively high rates compared to whites, but it is something quite different to falsely claim that minorities commit virtually all murders. For a candidate who has already spent an astounding $350 million on his campaign -- more than all of his opponents combined -- it might be hard for his political opponents to get a word in edgewise. But, even as polls are...

    House Democrats on Thursday launched a marathon 12-hour public reading of Robert Mueller's redacted report in an effort to bring attention to the special counsel's findings as Democrats battle with the Trump administration over investigations into Mueller's conclusions, President Donald Trump's finances and a range of administration policies and actions. **SNIP** "The American people need to hear from the report itself," Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon, D-Penn., a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said Thursday. "Summaries won't do." Even as they read from the publicly-released report, Democrats have continued to press for access to more information.

    Ed Whelan, a former clerk to the late justice Antonin Scalia and president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, pointed to floor plans, online photographs and other information to suggest a location for the house party in suburban Maryland that Ford described. He also named and posted photographs of the classmate he suggested could be responsible. Ford dismissed Whelan's theory in a statement late Thursday: "I knew them both, and socialized with" them, Ford said, adding that she had once visited the other classmate in the hospital. "There is zero chance that I would confuse them." Republicans on Capitol...
  • New York Times Has Neither Seen Nor Read ‘Russia Email’ to Donald Trump, Jr.

    Breitbart ^ | 07/10/17 | Joel B. Pollak
    The New York Times reports Monday evening that Donald Trump, Jr. was informed through an email that the information on Hillary Clinton that a Russian lawyer had offered to provide “was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy.” The email in question “was sent by Rob Goldstone, a publicist and former British tabloid reporter who helped broker the June 2016 meeting” with the Russian lawyer, the Timesreports. Supposedly, the email would have alerted Trump, Jr. to the lawyer’s alleged links to the Kremlin. Curiously, the Times does not provide the email. Nor has it actually seen...

    ... We’ll get away from firearms this trip, and look at something else related to personal safety: recognition of pre-assaultive behavior cues..... Being able to recognize body language associated with imminent violent action can allow you to, in the best-case scenario, disengage and leave the scene. At worst, it can give you time to activate a plan of self-defense soon enough to effectively protect yourself and those for whose safety you are responsible. Danger signals The eyes, it is said, are the windows to the soul. Often, the way in which a hostile person looks at you can be a...
  • Amazon to pay self-published authors based on pages read

    06/23/2015 7:53:38 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 11 replies
    could soon pay more to write lengthier books, if you are an author self-publishing on Amazon.com Inc's Kindle ebook platform. Starting next month, the e-commerce giant will pay independent authors based on the number of pages read, rather than the number of times their book has been borrowed. The move is aimed at authors enrolled in Kindle Direct Publishing platform – which lets authors set list prices, decide rights and edit the book at any time – and is applicable to ebooks made available via the Kindle Unlimited and Kindle Owners' Lending Library programs. Self-publishing has transformed what it means...

    Two members of House GOP leadership—Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)and Rules Committee chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX)-refused to admit through spokespersons to Breitbart News whether they have read the text of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Pacific Rim trade deal, but they still support granting President Barack Obama the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) to fast track it. What’s more, Scalise and Sessions—and others GOP conference-wide, including even perhaps Boehner—could be vulnerable to serious primary challenges if they continue forward with Obamatrade.

    Has Skynet become self-aware? It seems the 'robots' that run the US equity markets (HFT/algo trading dominates what little volume there is left) have decided to cut out the middle man in the market as Associated Press reports this morning that it will employ the story-writing software by start-up Automated Insights to automate the production of U.S. corporate earnings stories. To be frank, given the copy/paste nature of most mainstream media 'analysis' of earnings, we thought this had already occurred but AP notes, "We are going to use our brains and time in more enterprising ways during earnings season."

  • What Are Ten Books Your Teenagers Read as Part of Their Homeschool Education?

    Ligonier ^ | 4/19/14 | RC Sproul, Jr
    One of the weaknesses of the school model of education is that it squeezes out great books that don’t fit neatly into one or another of those artificial divisions of learning we call “subjects.” We don’t start with, “What books have had a deep impact in shaping what I am?” But with “What subjects am I supposed to be teaching, and which books will help me teach them?” I don’t teach my children subjects—I seek to instill in them wisdom. Which means I have them read the books that gave me wisdom.

    A teenage friend of Trayvon Martin was forced to admit today in the George Zimmerman murder trial that she did not write a letter that was sent to Martin's mother describing what she allegedly heard on a phone call with Martin moments before he was shot. In a painfully embarassing moment, Rachel Jeantel was asked to read the letter out loud in court. "Are you able to read that at all?" defense attorney Don West asked. Jeantel, head bowed, eyes averted whispered into the court microphone, "Some but not all. I don't read cursive." It sent a hush through the...
  • “I, Smartphone”? (Video)

    07/31/2012 8:51:59 AM PDT · by Hojczyk · 4 replies
    “I, Smartphone” video is based on the essay “I, Pencil” penned by Leonard Read, in 1958, and has had a lasting impact on how we think about the market process. Why would the Institute for Faith, Work and Economics care about how a smartphone is made and why would we want you to care? Because God has given us the market process as the most powerful tool we have in a fallen world to serve each other by using our gifts. Yes, that’s right. Smartphones allow thousands of dispersed people from across the globe to bring their gifts to serve...

    Great information! When I was an 18B I used to teach this information to my ODA. There are third world soldiers walking around with magazines full of bad ammo because they loaded a bad lot number. You don’t want that to happen to you so it’s important to be able to decipher the markings on foreign ammunition boxes and cans. I’ll root through my reference material in the meantime and see if I can find the translations for Chinese and Arabic as well. Thanks the pointer Soldier Systems.

    [SUMMARY: Public schools are bad because the Education Establishment, for 75 years, has made them that way.] Feeling brave? Got a cast-iron stomach? Not offended by decadence? Well, come with me and we’ll go for a stroll in the dangerous part of town, where society’s bad boys hang out. Yes, I’m talking about education. One metaphor works best for this whole disturbing field, and that’s CSI. Imagine a really big crime scene, chaotic and messy, filled with walking wounded, people who can’t read or count, their brains empty, their thoughts incoherent.  What happened here? We need to figure out whodunit...

    The suspense is over. The contest for Most Revealing Newspaper Headline of the Year has already been won. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, on September 4th, knocked out all the competition with this gem: “Reading climbs priority ladder”One of the nation’s great liberal newspapers reveals in no uncertain terms that reading has been nothing special in the state of Georgia for many decades. And even now, after an extraordinary effort by the new governor, it is going to be promoted only PARTWAY to where it belongs. This is an astonishing admission, and helps explain why one-third of public school students can’t read...

    The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will investigate whether or not the student NAACP chapter violated UNC’s non-discrimination policy in dismissing senior Billy Thomas, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Winston Crisp said. On Sunday, members of the NAACP unanimously voted to remove Thomas, who is a segregationist, for his views on race relations. Billy had been a member of the group since his freshman year. “We are on notice that there is a question as to whether or not a student organization has acted in compliance with the policy or not,” Crisp said. “We take that very seriously...

    A reading coach in Missouri told me a revealing story. A nine-year-old boy, unable to read; showed up for remedial help. Pointing at “bead,” the tutor explained, “When two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking.” The puzzled third-grader looked up and asked: “What’s a vowel?” Which prompts the question: “Has the state of Missouri lost its mind?” Specifically, the school board members, administrators, superintendents, principals, politicians, civic leaders, and all the other people in charge of public education, all the people who let a smart boy reach the third-grade without being able to read. What process of...

    Churches in the U.S. are preparing to read sections of the Torah on Sunday, August 13, in a show of solidarity with Israel and the Jewish people. The move is a response to an initiative by a group of churches that read from the Muslim Koran during their services on Sunday, June 26. According to the Faith Shared project, which initiated the Koran reading, 66 churches from 32 states joined that effort. In an effort to counter the move, a grassroots movement of churches across America is preparing to read from sections of the Torah during their services. According to...

    He was notoriously reluctant to discuss religion while Prime Minister, with his chief spin doctor Alastair Campbell famously commenting: ‘We don’t do God.’ (Snip) Mr Blair has previously praised the Muslim faith as ‘beautiful’ and said the Prophet Mohammed had been ‘an enormously civilizing force’. In 2006 he said the Koran was a ‘reforming book, it is inclusive. It extols science and knowledge and abhors superstition. It is practical and way ahead of its time in attitudes to marriage, women and governance’.
