  • New NASA images show Pluto’s moon Charon in stunning detail

    NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has sent incredible images of Pluto’s largest moon Charon back to Earth. The latest images reveal the moon’s complex and violent history, according to NASA. “Many New Horizons scientists expected Charon to be a monotonous, crater-battered world; instead, they’re finding a landscape covered with mountains, canyons, landslides, surface-color variations and more,” explained the space agency, in a statement. The high-resolution images, which were taken on July 14 and transmitted to Earth on Sept. 21, reveal a belt of fractures and canyons just north of the moon’s equator. Four times as long as the Grand Canyon, and...

    Rampant sexual abuse of children has long been a problem in Afghanistan, particularly among armed commanders who dominate much of the rural landscape and can bully the population. The practice is called bacha bazi, literally "boy play," and American soldiers and Marines have been instructed not to intervene — in some cases, not even when their Afghan allies have abused boys on military bases, according to interviews and court records. The policy has endured as American forces have recruited and organized Afghan militias to help hold territory against the Taliban. But soldiers and Marines have been increasingly troubled that instead...

So what do you want to give it? Two episodes before Donald Trump fired Stamos? Maybe Three? I think most viewers are no longer jumping up and down in sheer giddy over John Stamos.

    You may have never heard of Vasili Arkhipov. And yet life as we know it on this planet could have ended if it were not for his crucial intervention during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Born in 1926, Arkhipov saw action as a minesweeper during the Soviet-Japanese war in August 1945. Two years later he graduated from the Caspian Higher Naval School, serving in the Black Sea and Baltic submarine fleets – just in time for the start of the Cold War, which would stay with him for the rest of his service. During the 1950s the Soviets became very...

    The traditional view is simply stated: the purpose of public education is to take each child as far as each child can be taken. Who can disagree with that? If a school is aiming for less, that school would seem to me to be guilty of malpractice or false advertising. Doesn’t the word “education” imply a striving for excellence? At the end of each school year, children are presumed to know more than at the start. Isn’t that a reasonable presumption? Somewhat bizarrely, given what’s going on in our public schools, the Education Establishment might claim they agree. Oh yes,...

Ahead of the show's October 3 season premiere, Trump is being uncharacteristically coy about the possibility. When asked by CNN host Alisyn Camerota, "has 'SNL' asked you to go on this season? Would you consider it?" Trump answered cryptically: "I'm not allowed to say that." Camerota responded: "Oh really, why is that?" "Because I'm not allowed to say that." She pressed: "Because... you're in negotiations with them?" "I'm just not allowed to say it. I mean, I have-- uh-- silencio. I can't...

    There have been some misleading comparisons of "vehicle deaths" and "firearm deaths". The misleading characteristic is to compared vehicle deaths, which are mainly unintentional, with deaths associated with firearms, which are mainly intentional and not accidental. The correct comparison with fatal vehicle crashes would be to fatal firearm accidents. The claim has been made that vehicles have been highly regulated, and that is why the number of fatalities have been reduced, while firearms have not been regulated.

Archaeologists who painstakingly examined the bones of some 26 men, women and children buried in the Stone Age grave site at Schoeneck-Kilianstaedten, near Frankfurt, say they found blunt force marks to the head, arrow wounds and deliberate efforts to smash at least half of the victims' shins — either to stop them from running away or as a grim message to survivors.

  • New study on Concealed Carry (John Lott's latest)

    I hope that people will consider downloading a copy of our new study on concealed handguns available here. The paper shows the huge changes that have been occurring in the number of concealed handgun permits and who have been getting those permits. It also shows how changes in the crime rate have been related to changes in crime rates across states, and I think that the paper will serve as an important resource. Finally, if we can get another thousand downloads on the paper, I think that it will force the academics who pay attention to the rankings on the...

    FULL TITLE: Saying abortion is 3% of what Planned Parenthood does is like saying lynching was small percent of Klan activities Dispelling Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortion is only 3% of the services it offers. As Center for Medical Progress videos showing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome baby parts harvesting operation make their way into the homes of many Americans, the abortion biz is regurgitating an old myth, that abortion is a small percent of what Planned Parenthood does. In 2013, Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,653 abortions. In 2012, they reported 327,166 abortions and in 2011, they admitted to killing 333,964 unborn...

    I was able to interview her one hour before the debates in this exclusive, extended, uncensored 35Minute interview. If you thought her performance last night, you haven't seen anything yet... Watch the video. It's worth it. Some highlights. Though I'll only list a few, because you really should watch it. She's unbelievable. On SJW feminism "Indeed there are a lot of left-leaning women who don't care at all about empowering women... It is hypocrisy. It's hypocrisy to say "you're only a feminist, you only measure up in my eyes if you agree with everything I say. Hillary Clinton actually said...

    Planned Parenthood still claims they provide access to life-saving mammograms. In 2012, they issued a press release that read, “Planned Parenthood helps women nationwide get access to mammograms, as part of the range of health care Planned Parenthood health centers provide to nearly three million people a year.” Obama echoed their rhetoric during his second presidential campaign. He said, “There are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings.” Then, earlier this week, the Secretary of Obama’s Health and Human Services department defended federal funding for the abortion giant by...

    This has been posted by news sites with links to their sites. I post this again this time with a direct link to the Senator; but most of all I reformatted the text with HTML to emphasize the startling facts equal to or more than what the colorful chart conveyed.
