  • Time is of the Essence -- even in these Varying Times

    Canada Free Press ^ | 03/19/19 | Dr. Klaus Kaiser
    I do like the "longer days" (under DST) in summer and I also like to have the "extra" hour of sleeping time in the fall when reverting back to ST again. Who could argue with that? Not only that, the time is getting shorter and—if you believe it—can now even be reversed. So, if you remember the date—and scroll back to that specific time window—when your hammer hit your thumb instead of the nail, you ought to no longer feel any pain. Perhaps, it’s a bit of extrapolation on my part; I don’t even know. After all, the headline says:

    FULL TITLE: QUANTUM TIME Scientists have built world’s first ‘time machine’ in experiment which defies the laws of physics ============================================================ Lead researcher Dr Gordey Lesovik said by putting scattered electrons back into their original shape they had effectively created a state which went against the 'direction of time' ============================================================ SCIENTISTS have built the world’s first time machine — sort of. Working with electrons in the bizarre realm of quantum mechanics, they first created the equivalent of a break for a game of pool. The “balls” scattered and, according to the laws of physics, should have appeared to split in a...

    It’s true: it’s that time of year again, already. Time to reset your clocks.In addition to death and taxes we are now required to surrender an hour of our time to government; tomorrow morning at 2:00 AM you are mandated to turn your clock ahead one hour (unless you live in Arizona or Hawaii where they successfully rebelled against this tyranny years ago). What they do with our hour is anybody’s guess but when we finally get it back next November I know it will be greatly devalued.Like the dollarIn the past you could protest by refusing to adjust your...

    I know there are many threads here about Trump being time traveller or John Titor or many stories about his uncle and so on... I stumble on net on this story and it seems weird considering recent warm visit Kanye West have in White House. The fuss is about the design on one of the military's newer MRE (Meal, Ready-to-Eat) packages and appears to be President Trump and @KanyeWest sitting around a campfire. Package was designed in 2008 !

    What Is Time? Msgr. Charles Pope • January 22, 2019 • So often in funerals I hear proclaimed the familiar lines from the Book of Ecclesiastes, which speaks to the great mystery we call time; more on its text, in a moment. If I were to ask you to define time, could you do it in a way that really satisfies? For example, some have defined as “the measure of change.” Well, OK, but that doesn’t satisfy, does it? Ultimately time is deeply mysterious; our attempts to nail it down in words betray its depths more so than reveal it....
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's First House Speech Broke a C-SPAN Record. Here's What She Said

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s first speech from the House floor has set a minor record with C-SPAN. Ocasio-Cortez slammed the Trump Administration over the partial government shutdown in her remarks. A C-SPAN tweet of her nearly four-minute speech garnered 1.16 million views in a little more than 12 hours, setting a record for the most-watched Twitter video from the outlet of any remarks by a House member, according to a tweet from Howard Mortman, C-SPAN’s communications director. By Friday morning, it had surpassed 2.3 million views, with more than 13,000 retweets and over 46,000 likes.
  • I-95 construction should end by the time your grandkids are driving

    The Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | December 21, 2018 | Jason Laughlin
    By the time the I-95 reconstruction is complete, you’ll probably be too old to have to worry about a commute. The same goes for the planners, engineers, managers, and laborers who for more than a decade have worked to rebuild the highway’s 51 miles in Pennsylvania from the ground up. Their careers at PennDot or with contractors will almost surely end before construction does. “I don’t know that I think about too much that I’m not going to be here,” said Elaine Elbich, PennDot’s portfolio manager for the I-95 project. Elbich plans with a span of decades in mind. From...

    "In the future, every politician will have a mildly-to-extremely embarrassing video of themselves unearthed from their past, on the internet," writes Samantha Cole at Motherboard, arguing "it's part of the territory of growing up online." Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should know: While the Democratic congresswoman from New York was sworn in Thursday, she was also going viral, thanks to an edited clip from a 2010 YouTube video showing Boston University students dancing to "Lisztomania" by Phoenix (apparently inspired by this Brat Pack mash-up). "Here is America's favorite commie know-it-all acting like the clueless nitwit she is," AnonymousQ1776 wrote in sharing the clip...

    Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is? A Meditation on the Mystery of Time Msgr. Charles Pope • December 30, 2018 • I open our New Year’s Eve late night Mass (11:15 PM) with the observation that we begin Mass in one year and end in the next. New Year’s Eve highlights the mysterious passage between years. In a way I suppose it is no more mysterious than the passage from Thursday to Friday or from 10:00 AM to 10:01 AM.In one sense, nothing could be simpler than time. I might ask you, “What time is it?” You...

    It’s been a grim year for those seeking to pursue and preserve the truth. Journalists around the world have been targeted and assaulted for their work. Some have paid with their freedom; others have paid with their lives. Even the president of the United States — a country that has prided itself on having freedom of the press since its founding — has repeatedly attacked the media as “the enemy of the people.” Other world leaders have echoed this aggressive stance against the media, cracking down on reporters who have tried to hold them accountable. We are living through nothing...

    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...

She has reportedly broken three of her ribs. #SCOTUS press office says Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been admitted to GW Hospital this morning for "observation and treatment" after falling at her office last night, fracturing three ribs on her last side.

    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...

    Media giant Meredith Corporation has agreed to sell Time Magazine for $190 million, The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday. Marc Benioff, co-founder of the cloud computing company Salesforce.com, and his wife Lynn Benioff are purchasing the publication, they confirmed to the Journal. The proposed sale to the Benioffs is expected to close within 30 days and will be unrelated to Salesforce.com. They also told the newspaper that they won’t have any day-to-day influence over the magazine’s operations, nor will they have any journalistic input. “We’re investing in a company with tremendous impact on the world, one that is also an...

    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...
