    The son of former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice, a pro-Trump College Republicans leader, is pressing “full charges” against a fellow Stanford University student who he says assaulted him at an event supporting new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. John David Rice-Cameron, Rice’s son and president of the Stanford College Republicans, alleges that fellow Stanford sophomore Melinda Hernandez physically assaulted him last Tuesday at the California school.

    STANFORD (KPIX 5) — Politics led to tempers flaring on the Stanford campus and one disagreement among students got physical this week. Campus Republicans were holding an event in support of Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday when other students came up and started tearing up their posters. The president of the Stanford College Republicans, John Rice-Cameron, also claims he was shoved by a fellow student Melinda Hernandez. The incident was first reported by the Stanford Daily. Rice-Cameron is the son of Susan Rice, fomer U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and National Security Advisor under President Barack Obama. Last week, Rice made...

    John David Rice-Cameron, the Stanford College Republicans president, is pressing charges against a liberal student who allegedly “hit him” and “forcefully pushed him back” during a pro-Brett Kavanaugh event Tuesday afternoon. Rice-Cameron is the son of controversial Obama administration official Susan Rice, who is rumored to be considering a run against Susan Collins, R-Maine, following her support in the Senate for confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. But on the other side of the aisle on the Left Coast, her son is busy working to “Make Stanford Great Again” as an outspoken supporter of President Trump and conservative values....

    A sociolinguist from Stanford University claims the way African-Americans speak leads to discrimination across the board — in the court system, interactions with police, education, and employment. Professor John Rickford says “Black Vernacular English” is viewed as less “trustworthy, intelligent and well-educated” than so-called standard “white” English, and that “dismantling this construction is part of the fight for racial justice.”

    Steamboat Pilot ^ | September 13, 2018 | Matt Stensland,
    A Steamboat Springs couple recently had a scary encounter with a mountain lion at Mad Creek. Mark Stanford and his wife, Kristen Joaquim, were having a picnic Monday for Joaquim's birthday at the Mad Creek barn, and they started hiking back to the parking area at about 7:45 p.m. "I looked up and saw a set of eyes staring back at me," Stanford said. He said he saw a yellow-green reflection off the eyes, and he tried to size up the animal. "I could see that it was a big cat," Stanford said. "I knew that they had sighting ups...

    Association of Mature American Citizens ^ | September 7, 2018 | Outside Contributor
    Democratic Party power-player Steve Phillips is behind the rise of four potential far-left governors who have already won their primaries. The San Francisco attorney is a mega-wealthy self-identified student of “Marx, Mao, and Lenin” directing huge resources into socialist and communist-led groups, with the goal of putting his personal far-left proteges into governor’s mansions in Maryland, Georgia, Florida, and Arizona. Phillips and his partners in the highly secretive group Democracy Alliance hope that by electing far-left governors into four currently Republican-led states, the drive to impeach President Donald Trump and destroy his “Make America Great Again” agenda will be accelerated....

    A Hillary Clinton presidency would have been even more disruptive that the current Donald Trump administration, historian and prolific author Niall Ferguson told CNBC on Thursday. "There would have been an almost immediate impeachment process," Ferguson said in an interview with CNBC's Steve Sedgwick at the Ambrosetti Forum in Italy on Thursday. "More importantly, Trump supporters would have bought the story that the election had been rigged and you would have had Trump supporters with their pitchforks, or more likely semi-automatics, in a very ugly mood," he added. An anonymous op-ed published by The New York Times on Wednesday painted...

Seminatore, a second-year pediatric resident completing a child neurology residency at Stanford University, had joined Wong’s team, according to the statement from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital. “I asked who he was and his name, and last name sounded very familiar,” Wong said in the statement. “I kept asking where he was from, and he told me that he was from San Jose, California, and that, as a matter of fact, he was a premature baby born at...

    When Ariela Algaze signed up for a spring 2018 course on museums, she didn't expect to get wrapped up in the mystery of an ancient Egyptian mummy case that Jane Stanford herself purchased more than 100 years ago... Algaze's research led her to discover information that was not known by university scholars - including inscriptions on the coffin and the name of the mummified woman inside it... Algaze learned that the artifact contained writing after sifting through hundreds of its fragments, which have been stored in three boxes, unstudied for decades. The mummy case, which Jane Stanford purchased in 1901,...

Kamala Harris’s Wikipedia biography states that she was born in Oakland, CA in 1964 to immigrant parents and speculation exists that she plans to run for president in 2020, Golden State citizen Gary Wilmott has been seeking information as to her citizenship status and whether or not she meets the constitutional requirement of “natural born Citizen.” The Wikipedia entry states that Harris’s mother, Dr. Shyamala G. Harris, was...

    The announcement comes weeks after the incident that sparked the controversy. Rising junior Hamzeh Daoud, who identified himself as a “third-generation Palestinian refugee” in a Stanford Daily post published Friday, was upset after Israel passed a controversial bill in mid-July defining itself as the nation-state of the Jewish people. “im gonna physically fight zionists on campus next year if someone comes at me with their ‘israel is a democracy’ bullshit,” Daoud wrote in what he later described as an “emotion-filled” moment. Just a few hours later, Daoud edited the post to say he would “intellectually fight Zionists” and said he...

I saw it firsthand when I visited Schriever Air Force Base just a few weeks ago. And I can assure you, under President Donald Trump, American security will be as dominant in the heavens as we are here on Earth.” “We will beat back any disadvantage that our lack of attention has placed and America will once again lead in space,” Pence...

    It's in its early stages, but the idea is to replace modern rovers — which are slow, bulky and very expensive — with swarms of sensor-studded, fast-moving micro-bots that can cover much more ground at a relatively low cost. Literally called Marsbees, the little bots are "flapping wing flyers of a bumblebee size with cicada-sized wings," NASA officials wrote. The planet has just one-third of Earth's gravitational pull, offering the Marsbees an advantage despite the thin atmosphere. Flapping-wing bots are pretty uncommon on Earth, the NASA statement noted, because rotary-wing bots like quadcopters are much more popular. But the flapping-wing design allows the team...

    Future Moon and Mars colonists will already be facing a life underground, to hide from the surface radiation, micrometeorite bombardment, extreme temperatures and to create a usable atmosphere. These natural tunnels will save them the hard work of needing to dig the tunnel. The natural roofs on these caverns are thought to be 10 meters or more thick, with one site estimated to have a roof that’s 45-90 meters thick. This would be more than enough to protect against solar radiation and galactic cosmic radiation. While the surface of the Moon varies in temperature from -180 C to +100 C,...
