  • 3,700-year-old Babylonian tablet rewrites the history of maths - and shows the Greeks did not...

    08/24/2017 7:42:25 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 76 replies
    The tablet, known as Plimpton 332, was discovered in the early 1900s... Babylonian mathematics used a base 60, or sexagesimal system, rather than the 10 which is used today. Because 60 is far easier to divide by three, experts studying the tablet, found that the calculations are far more accurate. ... Hipparchus, who lived around 120BC, has long been regarded as the father of trigonometry, with his ‘table of chords’ on a circle considered the oldest trigonometric table. A trigonometric table allows a user to determine two unknown ratios of a right-angled triangle using just one known ratio. But the...

    Young Conservatives ^ | 12-15-16 | John S. Roberts
    It’s no secret that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a baby who was born with prenatal Down syndrome. His name is Trig. Over the years the left has pounded the Palin’s son mercilessly. Because, “tolerance” or something. Today, the 2008 VP nominee shamed Walmart for pushing a coffee mug that reads, “Got retard?” Pretty low.

    National Review ^ | February 27, 2015 | KEVIN D. WILLIAMSON
    Trigonometry Is Racist! KEVIN D. WILLIAMSON February 27, 2015 An African-American scholar says that emphasis on STEM education is bad for blacks. Earlier today on Sirius XM Urban View, an African-American talk station, the guest was Daryl Scott, president of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History. The conversation turned to STEM — science, technology, engineering, and math — education, and the origins of the ongoing push to encourage institutions and students to focus on those subjects. Can you guess what happened? In 1983, the guest explained, a commission empaneled by the secretary of education issued...

    Mr. Dawkins, I'd let you meet my son if you promised to open your mind, your eyes, and your heart to a unique kind of absolute beauty. But, in my request for you to be tolerant, I’d have to warn Trig he must be tolerant, too, because he may superficially look at you as kind of awkward. I'll make sure he's polite, though! Love, Sarah Palin & family

    Breitbart ^ | 6/18/2013 | Tony Lee
    Breitbart News has learned that less than a month before Barbara Walters defended Bill Maher's vicious attacks on Sarah Palin's special-needs son, Walters personally called Palin's camp to ask if the former Alaska governor could be a guest co-host on The View sometime during the months before the legendary anchor retires from TV journalism. Maher mocked Palin's special needs son by referring to him as "retarded" during a June 8 Las Vegas show. When Palin's schedule did not allow for her to guest host, Palin's advisers left the invitation as an open question. This backstory makes Walters's refusal to defend...

    Science Daily ^ | 04/24/2013 | Brittany Pequegnat
    A first-ever vaccine created by University of Guelph researchers for gut bacteria common in autistic children may also help control some autism symptoms. The groundbreaking study by Brittany Pequegnat and Guelph chemistry professor Mario Monteiro appears this month in the journal Vaccine. They developed a carbohydrate-based vaccine against the gut bug Clostridium bolteae. C. bolteae is known to play a role in gastrointestinal disorders, and it often shows up in higher numbers in the GI tracts of autistic children than in those of healthy kids. More than 90 per cent of children with autism spectrum disorders suffer from chronic, severe...

  • Wayne Brady Apologizes For Trig Palin-Jeff Ross Joke

    08/20/2012 7:45:07 PM PDT · by TheBigB · 58 replies
    This letter has taken me a few days to compose because of the conflicting emotions that I've experienced since the day of the Roast and it's subsequent airing. The environment of the Roast is a comedic (hopefully), tasteless (mostly always), affair that encourages everyone to out-filth each other. Not normally what I'm known for, right? But, when I was invited, I jumped at the chance to play outside of my perceived "norm" and have fun. The Jeff joke was written for me and at the end of the day I take full responsibility for saying it. It wasn't meant as...

    Breitbart ^ | 8/13/12 | staff
    Anyone who buys a ticket to attend a Comedy Central roast knows pretty much what to expect. No topic is off limits. Still, common decency doesn't necessarily take a holiday during these events. Consider the Sunday night broadcast of Comedy Central's Roseanne Barr roast. Comic Wayne Brady, best known for his improv skills, told a joke during the telecast that was so cruel the audience quickly filled the hall with boos, not just laughter. During Brady's remarks, he was making fun of fellow roaster Jeff Ross. "Now the thing is Jeff," said Brady, "these are all jokes, and I really...

    In the United States, would you believe ninety-two percent of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted before they get a chance to take a breath? When I hear this statistic, it makes me want to burst into tears.  I can’t imagine a world without Trig — he is the best brother!  (Okay, you’re not too bad either, Track!) It’s crazy how in love with Trig we all are. When Tripp is acting up — which he does often! — I sometimes joke with my mom. “Hey, want to trade kids?” I laugh. Willow and I always talk about how...

Did you know that today – March 21, 2012 – is actually World Down Syndrome Day? It’s a great day to take a moment and celebrate life. Children with Down Syndrome are beautiful, and I’m so proud of my baby brother. I wouldn’t want him any other way! Bristol then went on to dare us to watch this without tears. I must say, it’s a very challenging...

    Monday, a writer for Glenn Beck’s website The Blaze, took upon himself to trash Governor Palin for writing that beautiful article that was published over the weekend on the Daily Beast. Quite frankly, Beck’s writer shocked me with his tone and lack of reason for posting the piece. So why did The Blaze host this nauseating garbage? Why did Beck’s editors permit someone (a small man who writes just like a “progressive™” btw) to attack Governor Palin in this fashion, on this website?

    Last week, Rick Santorum and his family offered us a reminder of what really matters. When his 3-year-old daughter, Bella, born with Trisomy 18, was hospitalized with pneumonia, Rick left the campaign trail to be by her bedside. In the middle of this very heated campaign season, many of us prayed through tears for Bella’s health and added prayers of thankfulness for a public example of someone’s sacrifice made with the right priorities. (snip) During the 2008 presidential campaign, on rope lines at rallies across the country, my husband, Todd, and I met so many of these families and caretakers,...

    Here in Boystown, the gay talk show “Only@Brunch” recently mocked special needs, Down Syndrome toddler Trig Palin in the pilot episode of the latest “Downtown Cupid” production from Jared Hall. Because of the attention HillBuzz.org shined on this attack on a special needs child by catty gay men, Hall has released a statement agreeing the mocking of Trig Palin on “Only@Brunch” was indeed tasteless and unjustified. I, however, don’t feel Hall has explained himself well enough, because it remains a mystery why he chose to air this episode with the inclusion of the attack on Trig Palin. When taping anything...
