    This is the 20th anniversary of my years at FreeRepublic. I joined on November 9, 1998. I found a home here and have enjoyed my almost daily visits. Some of the most fascinating people have passed through the FR portal and the beautiful format allowed for sustained conversation and deep education of this fledgling conservative. FR also has provided much support and guidance through the talents and knowledge and kindnesses of its members. Tied down with four children to support, homeschool, and raise, singlehandedly, I was never able to make any of the events and was sad not to attend...

    Here’s some good news. You are about to get back that hour of sleep you lost last spring with the return of Standard Time. Every Autumn, we say good-bye to Daylight Saving Time (often incorrectly called daylight savings time) and hello to Standard Time when most Americans turn their clocks back one hour. Standard Time returns at 2:00 a.m. on Sunday November 4. That means if you’re staying in Saturday night, you’ll want to turn your clocks back one hour before you go to bed on November 3. If you’re out and about at 2:00 a.m., set your clocks back...

    Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers said Wednesday they have given the Senate sworn affidavits from four people who say she told them well before Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination that she had been sexually assaulted when she was much younger. And according to all four, she either named Kavanaugh as the assailant or described the attacker as a “federal judge.” At the U.N., meanwhile, President Donald Trump said on the eve of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Kavanaugh and Ford that Republicans have been “nice” and “respectful” in their treatment of Ford. He described his nominee as “a real gem”...

    The block universe theory says that our universe may be looked at as a giant four-dimensional block of spacetime, containing all the things that ever happen, explained Dr. Kristie Miller, the joint director for the Centre for Time at the University of Sydney.In the block universe, there is no "now" or present. All moments that exist are just relative to each other within the three spacial dimensions and one time dimension. Your sense of the present is just reflecting where in the block universe you are at that instance. The "past" is just a slice of the universe at an...

    In this mini world, the concepts of "before" and "after" dissolve, such that two events can both precede and succeed each other. In other words, event A can occur before event B, and event B can occur before event A... This idea, called a "quantum switch," was first proposed in 2009 by another team and has since been explored both theoretically and experimentally. Previous experiments showed event A could both precede and succeed event B, but the research couldn't say that these two scenarios were happening at the same place, said Cyril Branciard, co-author of this new study and a...

    Time magazine has a big new story out that purports to show just how little public-school teachers make."'I Work 3 Jobs And Donate Blood Plasma to Pay the Bills.' This Is What It's Like to Be a Teacher in America" telegraphs its message in its headline. The opening anecdote tells the story of a struggling veteran teacher reduced to selling blood plasma to make ends meet. Hope Brown can make $60 donating plasma from her blood cells twice in one week, and a little more if she sells some of her clothes at a consignment store. It's usually just enough...

    After the liberal media went wild for a photoshopped Time magazine cover depicting President Trump looking down at a crying immigrant girl, it was exposed that the girl was not separated from her family after all. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday to defend his outlet’s deceptive and misleading cover. Meanwhile, host Brian Stelter was worried about right-wing media pouncing on the story. “As soon as it was revealed through an interview with the child's father that the family had not been separated there was a really strong right-wing backlash to your cover, including...
  • Using Their Own Tactics Against Them.

    Using their Alinsky tactics against them. I'm fed up. I am fed up with being called a NAZI. Dan Bongino https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQlw7Vbkva8&t=3087s gave a great show about this and why they are doing it. The Nazis did it to the Jews. Make them look like something less than human, so it's easier to do to them what was coming. The TIME magazine cover was the last straw. I have decided to resume the fight the only way I know how. I am a cartoonist, what can I do? "The political cartoonist is the biggest threat to a dictator, because he can...

    The family separation issue is tough, but don't expect liberals at TIME magazine to understand that. On Thursday, the magazine's cover attacked President Donald Trump as heartless."Welcome to America," the cover's title, is trending on Twitter.Orlando talk radio host Joe Kelly shared the cover, and explained it briefly. "Time Magazine's latest cover features a fabricated mashup of a child at the border crying with a seemingly uncaring President Trump staring down at her with the words 'Welcome to America,'" he explained.

    The History of Time after Pentecost THE SOLEMNITY OF PENTECOST and its Octave are over, and the progress of the Liturgical Year introduces us into a new period, which is altogether different from those we have hitherto spent. From the very beginning of Advent, which is the prelude to the Christmas festival, right up to the anniversary of the descent of the Holy Ghost, we have witnessed the entire series of the Mysteries of our Redemption; all have been unfolded to us. The sequel of Seasons and Feasts made up a sublime drama, which absorbed our very existence; we...

    Timeless recap: Bloodshed and betrayal in an explosive two-part season finale (SPOILER ALERT!) by Devan Coggan After an untimely cancellation and an unexpected resurrection in its freshman season, Timeless is taking no chances this time around. The time travel drama is closing out its stellar second season with a gutsy, guns-blazing finale that completely rewrites the rules — and showcases how much this show has grown. Not only has Timeless ironed out some of its kinks and tightened up its mythology, but it’s also finally leaning into its strengths — particularly its strong cast and time-period-of-the-week structure. -- SNIP --...

    President Donald Trump’s fiercest Democratic critic has launched a new attack on the president, this time telling him to just resign so that she no longer has to fight for his impeachment. Representative Maxine Waters, of California, has repeatedly called on Trump to be impeached, citing a variety of reasons, from his conduct in office to what she has alleged was his campaign’s collusion with Russia, even before Special Counsel Robert Mueller has concluded his investigation into Russian interference. Asked if she had any advice for Trump during a gala for the Time 100 in New York on Tuesday, Waters...

    Schools are removing analogue clocks from examination halls because teenagers are unable to tell the time, a head teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital devices after pupils sitting their GCSE and A-level exams complained that they were struggling to read the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary at the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), said youngsters have become accustomed to using digital devices. “The current generation aren’t as good at reading the traditional clock face as older generations,” he told The Telegraph.

    What does it really mean to say that time ‘passes’? Why does time pass faster in the mountains than it does at sea level? The physicist explains in this extract from his latest book I stop and do nothing. Nothing happens. I am thinking about nothing. I listen to the passing of time. This is time, familiar and intimate. We are taken by it. The rush of seconds, hours, years that hurls us towards life then drags us towards nothingness ... We inhabit time as fish live in water. Our being is being in time. Its solemn music nurtures us,...

    The History of Paschal Time WE GIVE THE NAME OF PASCHAL TIME to the period between Easter Sunday and the Saturday following Whit Sunday. It is the most sacred portion of the Liturgical year, and the one towards which the whole Cycle converges. We shall easily understand how this is, if we reflect on the greatness of the Easter Feast, which is called the Feast of Feasts, and the Solemnity of solemnities, in the same manner, says St. Gregory, as the most sacred part of the Temple was called the Holy of holies: and the Book of Sacred Scripture,...
