  • Attack of the Clones: Creature That Started as Pet Now Multiplying Out of Control

    Most species of crayfish reproduce the same way that humans do: by having sex. But one species of crayfish that evolved out of the pet trade can do something unique—clone itself—and this ability has led populations of the crustacean to spawn out of control. For a study published today in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution , researchers sequenced the genomes of 11 marbled crayfish, both from the wild and from the pet trade. They found that the genomes in all 11 animals were nearly identical, meaning that they don’t reproduce sexually, and that they are officially a different species...

    (NATIONAL) -- You say you like scary movies? Then grab your pants and get ready to dance because this one just might give you a heart attack and hardening of the arteries at the same time. There’s a scary new horror flick on the horizon and it’s generating huge buzz off its debut at a film festival. The British newspaper The Independent says it’s, “unanimously touted as the scariest (movie) in years following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.” It’s called Hereditary and it’s a new entry from the same folks (distribution company called A24) that brought you ‘The...

    Most adults would like to think school has left them equipped for most things that life throws at them. But a particularly tricky IQ test has left internet users stumped, pushing their mathematical and linguistic skills to the limit. Jumping right in at the deep end with a complicated numerical question, the Playbuzz quiz is certainly not for the fainthearted. Try your hand at the quiz to see how you score, and scroll down to the bottom for answers (no cheating!)

  • In New Book, Hillary Clinton Says ‘My Skin Crawled’ During Debate With Trump [GRAPHIC IMAGES]

    In the first excerpts from Hillary Clinton's highly anticipated upcoming memoir, the former Democratic presidential candidate said her "skin crawled" during a debate with Donald Trump. In audio clips of Clinton reading from the book, "What Happened," which were first obtained by MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Wednesday, Clinton recounted her thoughts as she toyed with the idea of telling her Republican rival to "back up, you creep" as he stood behind her during the second presidential debate. "My skin crawled," Clinton said. "It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching 'well,...

This is Traci Belmonte, outspoken political commentator, and a frequent co-host on Bill Mitchell's daily YourVoiceAmerica internet TV show and podcast.

    The dangerous power of vicious fake news was clearly demonstrated Sunday when a gunman walked into a Washington, D.C., restaurant that has been the target of a phony pedophilia conspiracy theory and fired an assault weapon. Saner elements of our society cannot allow this kind of activity to flourish. In the run-up to the presidential election, some right-wingers with no evidence or facts propagated a loony theory that top Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and her campaign manager, operated a child sex ring out of Washington’s Comet Ping Pong restaurant. The alt-right echo chamber rushed the falsehood to hundreds of thousands...

    Don't want to sound cynical. Just wondering: What happens? What will Trump supporters do? What will House Republicans do (yawn)? What will Texas do? Will we just whine and bellyache as usual? Do conservative sites get shut down? Does American citizenship lose any meaning? Does the Constitution get trampled? Does the US turn into Venezuela? How are people preparing? How are you preparing? Just wondering.

    This is the terrifying collection of nearly 500 guns and 200,000 rounds of ammunition which was seized from a parish council chairman who collected firearms 'like stamps'. Police revealed the full extent of their discovery at the home of crane operator James Arnold in Wyverstone, Suffolk. It is the biggest arsenal of illegal weapons ever found in the UK. Three months after the discovery and the 49-year-old's arrest in April 2014, Arnold died of pancreatic cancer, meaning he could never face prosecution. But as firearms dealer Anthony Buckland, 65, was jailed for at Norwich Crown Court for supplying some of...

    President Barack Obama complained that Fox News made him “look scary” during his first run for president, and suggested that his race was part of the network’s attempt to slant the presidential election. Obama made his remarks during a conversation with author Marilynne Robinson which was published by The New York Review. While discussing a book she wrote about Iowa, Obama recalled his own experiences with the people there as he was running for president. “I wasn’t viewed through this prism of Fox News and conservative media, and making me scary,” he said, adding that it was easy for him...

    Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, 71, still likes to wake and bake. But he's fussy about where the weed comes from. "I smoke regularly, an early morning joint. Strictly Californian," The Independent reports the musician told Mojo magazine for its September issue. Richards, who is currently promoting his solo album "Crosseyed Heart," also remarked on the spread of marijuana legalization in the United States. "One of the most pleasant things to watch is a map of America where it goes, green ... green ... green ... green," The Independent reports he said. "Whether it’s a good thing in the long...

    National Review ^ | 2/13/2015 | John Fund
    Her team is famous for playing mean, and potential competitors are afraid to enter the ring. It seems everyone on the activist left of the Democratic party wants Elizabeth Warren to challenge Hillary Clinton. The New York Working Families Party, born out of the infamous and disbanded ACORN empire, has endorsed her. A new YouGov poll paid for by Warren backers purports to show that once voters are familiar with the stances of both women, Warren will beat Hillary in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Warren, who was elected to the Senate from Massachusetts only four years ago, has refused...
