    Harvard scientists triumphantly announced that they'd created metallic hydrogen last month, but now it's suddenly gone. Scientists hailed it as the “holy grail” of high pressure physics when they finally produced it in the lab: metallic hydrogen, a century after it was first theorized to exist. And now that sample, which had been held in a hyper refrigerated laboratory, has vanished into thin air, and scientists can’t figure out why. Reports indicate that the metallic hydrogen had been kept between a vice of two diamonds at huge pressures while being stored at 80 Kelvin, but something happened in the lab...
  • Rifles, Bazookas, Avoidance of Weapon Imagery and "Civility"

    Glen Beck radio, during news segment | Feb 8, 2011 | by Lazamataz
    I just heard this on the news segment between Glen Beck's broadcasts, so it is otherwise unsubstantiated and probably has minor transcription errors. However, a politician that I did not catch the name of, was talking about some proposal that Obama made. I do not remember what the proposal was. I only remember the violent weapons imagery and the subsequent lack of 'civility'. The pol was quoted stating "The President's proposal, it's not like a bazooka.... it's more precise and focused, more like a rifle." When I heard this, I immediately realized that the Demoncrats are almost taunting us. Sarah...

    January 3, 2011 Dear Mr. xzxzxzxzx, Thank you for contacting me with your concerns. I appreciate hearing from you. While the 111th Congress has come to a close, I have heard from a great number of Arkansans on a wide variety of issues. Please know I have taken note of your specific comments and concerns, and I will keep them in mind as I continue to work across the aisle to find legislative solutions. One of the specific concerns you mentioned in your letter relates to the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy currently in effect for U.S....

    I just got off the phone with an acquaintance that works at one of those annual fee rooms at airports that allow you to enjoy free drinks, wifi and snacks while you wait for your site and he told me a VERY interesting event that happened yesterday. And remember, you have to get through security to be in these rooms. They are near the gates: A mousy, sweet woman came up to the counter and asked if they had storage lockers. The employee behind the counter told her that they don’t, but there were places to store things by baggage...

    Obama Is Spending Millions Of Tax Dollars On a Vacation For Himself and 3,000 Of His Close Friends Alert: While America suffers through the Recession, the "overworked" Obama wines, dines and dances his way across India - on our dime! The purpose of Obama's multi-million dollar trip to India is to "create" 54,000 jobs, (keep in mind the current unemployment number in the U.S. is 14.8 million.) Obama hasn't revealed exactly how this trip will create American jobs. Obama is simply repeating history. Like the so-called stimulus, the bailouts and other feeble attempts at job creation, Obama will just throw...

    The election in Virginia's 11th congressional district was one of the closest in the Nation. For that, I am grateful and I have you to thank. You made this run possible. You are the reason we performed as well as we did. And I am humbled and honored to have had your enormous support. Over 220,000 votes were cast, and less than 1,000 votes separate the two candidates. In this situation, Virginia law says that there should be a recount if I request it. In fact, the election is so close that the General Assembly has determined that the Commonwealth...

    Just spoke with old friend, very senior retired USAF general officer/pilot. Says his contacts, many of whom were his "boys," have no idea what Pacific missile is/was As I was calling him, he was calling me to run my old network traps to see if anyone at the network desks in NY or DC have any idea what this was! Data from video seems to be that it was large, ballistic, (not cruise) sub-launched. Course seemed to be trans-polar, so could have impacted in Arctic, Russian Far East, China, etc. Current guesses... and these are wild guesses (some from the...

Dear Mr. --------: Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the American Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act (S. 1733). I understand your concerns about the impact such legislation will have on Americans. At the same time, I believe that global warming is real and needs to be addressed. The good news is that S. 1733 can be a cost effective way to address this threat and help...

    "Thank you for letting me know of your concerns about health care legislation moving through Congress. I understand - and share - your support for our existing employer based system for workers and Medicare for retirees. Unfortunately, (I AGREE WITH YOU BUT I KNOW BEST FOR YOU) that system is coming under such large and growing strains that its long standing success at giving Americans access to the best health care in the world will be seriously threatened in the coming years. Already, far too many of us fall through the cracks. In my Congressional district alone, 117,000 West Virginians...

    September 2, 2009 | By Amanda Reinecker Obamacare’s five flaws There is little disagreement among liberals and conservatives that America's current health care system needs serious reform. But the Left's plan is seriously flawed. Heritage Foundation expert Nina Owcharenko dissects "five major faults with the health care bills" being pushed in the House and Senate. 1. The public "option." Both proposals would create a government-run insurance plan which proponents claim would foster honest competition among private insurers. But how can there be fair competition when one of the players -- Washington -- is both writing the rules and playing the...

    By now you have probably heard that President Obama came to Montana last Friday. However, there are many things that the major news has not covered. I feel that since we live here and we were at the airport on Friday I should share some facts with you. Whatever you decide to do with the information is up to you. If you chose to share this email with others I do ask that you DELETE my email address before you forward this on. On Wednesday, August 5th it was announced locally that the President would be coming here. There are...

    This is the moment our movement was built for. For one month, the fight for health insurance reform leaves the backrooms of Washington, D.C., and returns to communities across America. Throughout August, members of Congress are back home, where the hands they shake and the voices they hear will not belong to lobbyists, but to people like you. Home is where we're strongest. We didn't win last year's election together at a committee hearing in D.C. We won it on the doorsteps and the phone lines, at the softball games and the town meetings, and in every part of this...

    Are the days of civil town hall meetings over? They will be if a vocal group of right-wing activists, supported by some GOP leaders, have their way. Speak out now -- congressional recess starts in just a few days. Tell members of Congress to say NO to the organized hijackings of town hall meetings before it's too late. Dear XXXXXXX, Remember those right-wing activists who organized Tax Day "tea parties" to protest the Obama administration? They're back, but this time, it's to disrupt town hall meetings being held by Democratic elected officials.1 These people are on the fringe, like the...

    <p>Just got this note in an email from a friend in SW Virginia.....</p> <p>I got a phone message from the pro health care group and I almost hung up. I decided to listen to the end, which wasn't very long, at the end they ask you to talk to Senator Warner and tell him to vote for health care and they offer to put you through to his office. I stayed on the line and punched #1 to be put through and a young man picked up the line right away , Senator Warner's office how can I help you". I of course told him I DIDN'T want the Gov. to vote for the health care package. The kid seemed stunned. He took my address and zip. Now I don't know if this was really his office or not but if it was I felt pretty good about using the dem's trick against them. The ID number comes up 000-000-0000 from this recored message.</p>

    I received the following email message today from moveon.org because I'm on their mailing list. As you can see, they're pretty upset that Republicans are holding health care hostage, even though they have the numbers but can't get the votes! ########################################## Dear MoveOn member, Why are Republicans holding health care hostage?1 More importantly, why are Democratic leaders letting them? The chair of the powerful Senate Finance Committee, Max Baucus, is refusing to release a bill until he can reach a deal with Republicans2—who are ideologically opposed to a public health insurance option and are stalling as much as they can....

    email response from Grassley | August 3, 2009 | Senator Charles Grassley (R-Iowa)
    Thank you for taking the time to email me with your opposition to health care reform. As your Senator, it is important for me to hear from you. Please accept my apology for the delay in my response. While I understand your opposition to the current health care reform debate, there are certain elements of our system that need to be improved. With the Medicare system at risk of going insolvent and U.S. businesses and consumers struggling to keep up with skyrocketing health care costs, Congress should enact health care reform that lowers costs. This can be achieved by changing...

    email: The Heritage Foundation | 7/31/2009 | Amanda Reinecker
    "Americans just aren't buying President Obama's all gain, no pain, health care claims," Heritage Foundation expert Conn Carroll reports. That's because more and more Americans are finding that President Obama's "public option" would be, as Heritage President Ed Feulner writes in Townhall.com, the "only 'option.'" The "public option" would be a government-run health insurance company that would "compete" with other firms. But it wouldn't be just another insurance company. "Far from being merely an option," Heritage Vice President Stuart Butler explains, "a Medicare-style public plan would unleash a dynamic that is not what Americans thought they were voting for last...
