  • EXCLUSIVE: Turmoil Inside National Review Over Covington Catholic Story, Rich Lowry Losing Control

    Big League Politics ^ | 10/20/19 | Peter D'Abrosca
    According to a source inside of #NeverTrump stalwart National Review, who spoke to Big League Politics on the condition of anonymity, the magazine is in turmoil after publishing a now-deleted piece bashing the Covington Catholic High School students. Deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich penned a piece called “The Covington Students Might as Well Have Just Spit on the Cross,” which was published at 3 a.m. on Sunday. “The guy who posted that did it at 3am without running it by anyone,” an employee familiar wit the situation told Big League Politics. The source said that editor Rich Lowry is “deeply...
  • Vampire Science Believes “YOUNG BLOOD” Is the REAL Fountain of Youth

    The Organic Prepper ^ | January 2, 2019 | Daisy Luther
    A clinical trial called “Ambrosia” seeks to discover the long-sought Fountain of Youth – and some scientists believe they’ve found it in the blood of young people. Unlike most clinical trials, people actually paid to participate instead of the other way around. Patients over the age of 35 ponied up $8000 to take part in the experiment where they get transfusions of young blood, run by Dr. Jesse Karmazin. People are getting transfusions of “young blood” to slow aging. Unsurprisingly, the business “experiment” is taking place in Monterrey, California, right on the edge of Silicon Valley. . . . And...

    Yes, I know what you're thinking - aren't these posts supposed to be written in advance and published at the end of the year so that writers can take some time off and still provide some content? To which I respond, you are absolutely right! But 2018 was by far the busiest year of my life, and this subject was just too good to let pass. Last week The Daily Wire's Paul Bois alerted us to this gem: New York Times Praises Radical Environmentalist Who Killed Himself To Save EarthEarlier this year, radical environmentalist David Buckel demonstrated his love for...

    Twin Mustang Restoration ^ | Monday, January 7, 2019 | Tom Reilly
    On 31 December 2018, our XP-82 Twin Mustang flew for the first time since 14 December 1949. Although it wasn’t supposed to fly yesterday, all that was planned to do was the last FAA required runway high-speed taxi test, lift off for a second or two and then back down, deploy full flaps and brake to a stop. It accelerated so fast after the planned lift off that Ray, our test pilot, realized that getting it back down and stopping it in the remaining runway would be marginal. So he pushed the power back up and flew for about five...

    Janitor's view ^ | 01/07/19 | Reasonmclucus
    Most of this was previously posted. Some of the links may no longer work.]. Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe and Urban Renaissance Institute, has reported that Enron played a major role in pushing the global warming scam, including establishing the Kyoto Protocals. Enron had already profited from trading sulfur dioxide credits and saw the potential for even greater profits from trading what would become known as "carbon credits". The article is the first in a series of articles about those who seek to profit from what Weather Channel founder John Coleman calls "the greatest scam in history." It's...
  • Give your mind a workout -- what we already know about time travel

    original to FR | Jan 7, 2019 | Peter O'Donnell
    Time travel -- it is of course a subject central to science fiction. Most of us probably believe it might one day become possible. It does not seem to be that close to becoming a reality. There are, apparently, laboratory experiments with mysterious sub-atomic particles that demonstrate the existence of time travel on a limited basis. But as to human beings getting into a time machine and ending up in their future or past, we don't have anything like that available. But we do already know some things about time travel, from what we can observe around us. (1) If...

    I’m looking for someone who is familiar with Probability Trees to confirm a model I am working on. Although this problem is depicted as switches, logic and bulbs, it is anything but. In the near future I’m going to have to make a potential life altering decision (don’t want to discuss in public) and am looking for someone to confirm that my math is correct. Here is a summary of the problem, the diagram shows what I’m attempting to describe below. There are two switches (A and B) that can be set in only one of four combinations. For simplicity...

    FISHERS — Tens of thousands of jobs available in Indiana right now are tech jobs, but many people who could fill those positions just don’t have the right skills like knowing how to code. Eleven Fifty Academy in Fishers is looking to change that as they’ve already launched, changed, and enhanced the careers of hundreds of Hoosiers, including Autumn Henderson. As a young mother, Henderson wanted to find a career that she was passionate about, and that would pay the bills. “I was really worried for a long time,” Henderson said. “My parents were gracious enough to let me stay...

  • What if the Moon was split in half?

    If you simply flew up into space and sawed the moon in half with a giant hacksaw, most likely, nothing would happen. This is because gravitational force would hold the two halves together, sort of like a couple of magnets. But what if you were able to get a couple of giant crowbars and put a person on the other side and then count to 3 and totally separate the two halves of the moon? With enough strength applied, you could theoretically push the two halves far enough apart where the gravitational force no longer pulls them together and now...

    Dr Busby says a few words about the Russian Nerve Agent issue. He speaks as an expert in this area. Chris worked for several years at the famous Wellcome Research laboratories in Beckenham, London as a Senior Scientist in the Department of Physical Chemistry. His job, at the basic level, was to help determine the structure and origin of pharmaceutical compounds. So, he is an expert in this area. He also carried out similar work at Queen Mary College London for his first PhD and synthesised complex organic chemicals. From that, he relates that the synthesis of a specific small...

    Armstrong Economics ^ | Nov 28, 2018 | Martin Armstrong
    There is a lot more to Climate Change than the dire predictions that we will be eating each other by now. The Sahara Desert was once lush and green. Then the weather systems shifted and the once fertile land turns to desert. The Sphinx is believed to have the face of Khafra of the 4th dynasty during the Old Kingdom which was carved perhaps around 2500BC. Some believe that the Sphinx predates the Egyptians and was actually a lion because there appear to be what some claim are water erosion marks. If true, then the original Sphinx may have existed...

    Believe it or not, pretend Scientists are actuall proposing to create a synthetic Volcanic Winter by spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere the same as a volcanoe when it erupts. These pretend research scientists at Harvard and Yale universities have published in the journal Environmental Research Letters proposing to inject an aerosol (SAI) to reduce the rate of global warming. They have propsed a completely unproven attempt to alter the planet using a technique involving spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. They argue to deliver the sulfates...

    American Greatness ^ | 11-24-18 | Edward Ring
    n October 2016, in a coordinated act of terrorism that received fleeting attention from the press, environmentalist activists broke into remote flow stations and turned off the valves on pipelines carrying crude oil from Canada into the United States. Working simultaneously in Washington, Montana, Minnesota, and North Dakota, the eco-terrorists disrupted pipelines that together transport 2.8 million barrels of oil per day, approximately 15 percent of U.S. consumption. The pretext for this action was to protest the alleged “catastrophe” of global warming. These are the foot soldiers of environmental extremism. These are the minions whose militancy receives nods and winks...

    James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal ^ | November 21, 2018 | Ben Cohen
    In 2015, Colorado School of Mines writing instructor Dr. Jon Leydens delivered a TED talk titled “engineering and social justice.” According to Leydens, in the mid-2000s students started asking him about how they could combine their “passion for social justice” with their “interest in engineering.” Leydens is part of a growing movement that seeks to incorporate social justice into engineering, in both the professional code and the curriculum. Far from being a marginal movement, on the fringes of the profession, it enjoys support at the highest levels. The movement began during the Vietnam War era when left-wing engineers founded the...
