    Albert Einstein was born in Germany on March 14, 1879. He began teaching himself calculus at age 14. With a doctorate from the University of Zurich, Einstein wrote papers on electromagnetic energy, relativity, and statistical mechanics. Einstein predicted a ray of light from a distant star would appear to bend as it passed near the sun. When an eclipse confirmed this, the London Times ran the headline, Nov. 7, 1919, “Revolution in science – New theory of the Universe – Newtonian ideas overthrown.” In 1921, Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize in physics. Describing the theory of relativity, Albert Einstein...

    It is no secret having children can have a big impact on a couple’s relationship. And one Australian mum, Mel Watts, has touched hearts with an extremely “raw and honest” Facebook post about how her ten year relationship is no longer what it once was. “Husband. Wife. Roommates? If someone told me years ago that my relationship would one day change, I would have laughed and said no way,” she began in a Facebook post

    Senate Bill 143 (Universal Background Checks) The Nevada Firearms Coalition is STRONGLY OPPOSED to SB143. This bill is ineffective in reducing homicides or keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals: The University of California at Davis examined the first ten years after California developed universal background checks. Their study found no net difference between firearm-related homicide rates before and during the 10 years after law implementation. Universal background checks are really a gateway to UNIVERSAL GUN REGISTRATION. This is not a gun crime issue; it is a gun control issue!

    What will 2019 bring? The U.K. is leaving the E.U. while it builds an Army. While the Democrats may have retaken the House, President Trump prefers to find ways to undermine THEM. Socialists have now successfully completely taken over the Progressive moment and have hit the gas.Will America be "Out of Many One"?Or "The earth belongs only to men"?

And then he started drinking and smoking pot and even used coke when he could afford it. And then something happened during college that made he smartened up and realize that he was wasting his life. He turned his life around and become the success that he is today. As a young man Bush was a smart guy who didn?t put much effort into school either. Some time after school he started drinking...

    Life Site News ^ | 07.09.18 | Matthew Cullinan Hoffman
    The thought of Karl Marx, a German political agitator whose theory of “scientific socialism” wreaked havoc on the world for most of the 20th century, would seem to have been consigned to the ash heap of history following the fall of the Eastern Bloc communist regimes from 1989 to 1991. After decades of mass murder claiming tens of millions of victims, as well as the totalitarian oppression of hundreds of millions more, the reputation of Marxism had been destroyed almost completely, seemingly assuring its final demise.However, a resurgence of interest in Marx’s thought has been ongoing since 2008, when the...

    Occupations are strongly sorted by ideology. Political scientist Adam Bonica has produced reliable and consistent estimates of ideological placement for a huge number of individuals, politicians, and organizations. As he writes here, he was especially struck by how extreme are the mean ideology scores for various occupations: Although the ideological orientation of these industries is not much of a surprise, the extent to which these industries favor the extreme, rather than moderate, wings of each party far surpassed my expectations.

    DAVID GREENE, HOST: When the U.S. reimposed sanctions on Iran earlier this month after pulling out of the nuclear deal, it was just the latest in a long saga of tensions between the two countries. And often, when those tensions flare up, we call on Dutch journalist Thomas Erdbrink to get the view from Iran. He's the Tehran bureau chief for The New York Times, and he's one of the few Western journalists living in Iran. I often leave our brief interviews with Thomas wanting to know more about him and his life there, and now we will get the...

Tamar’s sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer’s unruly behavior. “@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta,” Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. “Wow!

    On August 3, 1492, Cristoforo Colombo (yes, you non-Italians spell it Christopher Columbus) set sail from Palos de la Frontera, Spain, with three ships – the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria – headed for Asia. And he might have made it, too, eventually… if the Western Hemisphere hadn’t been in the way. As it was, he gets the credit for discovering the Americas (even if a clever cartographer named Amerigo Vespucci grabbed up the naming rights first). Would some other European eventually have had the same idea, twenty, fifty or a hundred years later? Certainly. Eventually, the Europeans...

    Just a strange question that's been rumbling around in my mind and I wanted to get some intelligent folks to discuss it, so I came to FreeRepublic, as always. A few weeks ago, President Trump (and no, even as a third party guy, I don't get tired of saying that) enacted tarrifs on China. In an act of sheer desperation, China reportedly devalued their currency by 45%. Currently, we owe China $5.6 trillion. Does this mean that we now owe them $3.36 trillion? Does it mean that we would be able to borrow from the Fed and private sources $3.36...

    By now you’ve probably heard of polls that say Americans believe that “Donald Trump is the worst president in history” or that presidential scholars have ranked Trump “dead last.” I can tell you right now to ignore the polls and the so-called experts. While it may be too early to properly gauge presidential rankings for recent presidents, I am confident that history will ultimately judge Barack Obama as the worst president our nation has ever seen.
