  • It’s True, Ted Cruz May Have Violated Election Law With Super PAC Ads

    After Ted Cruz‘s big win in Wisconsin, Donald Trump immediately went on the offensive, claiming that Cruz ‘illegally’ coordinated with a super PAC to produce damaging anti-Trump ads. Under FEC rules, candidates are not supposed to directly coordinate with super PACs which are allowed to raise unlimited funds from individuals, companies, and other groups. We did some digging into Trump’s claim, and found that he may, in fact, have a case. The rules around what it means to ‘coordinate’ are murky. LawNewz.com consulted with election law experts who agree that Cruz got himself into some gray area with at least...

    WHEN true artists look back on their careers, they inevitably do so with a sense of romanticism: the journey is usually long and every moment is worth relishing. In celebration of her 25 years in theater, Monique Wilson recently starred in a concert that reflected on her own journey, which began in 1980 when she was 9, with Repertory Philippines. The little girl Monique dreamed, believed and persevered. On Saturday evening, she narrated the years that came between those days of dreaming and her present reality. The night of musical remembrances began with "When You Wish Upon A Star" (from...
  • Obama to speak about Libya at 5:15 ET

    Here’s your open thread for live reaction. Jay Carney claimed earlier today that he’d been silent thus far because of, um, a “scheduling issue,” but obviously there are strategic concerns at work. The fact that he’s speaking up now, before Americans in Libya are fully out of harm’s way, means either that the silence has started to do him real political damage or that Qaddafi’s grip has become so weak that there’s no longer much of a risk that he’ll start taking hostages. There’s some reason to believe that the latter is true: The Journal claims that cities have begun...

  • Wasilla made rape victims pay (PATHETIC Boston Globe dusts off this canard yet again!)

    Boston Globe ^ | 10/1/08 | Editorial Board
    ONE QUESTION that Sarah Palin should answer during tomorrow's debate is why, during her tenure as mayor of Wasilla, the town started charging rape victims or their insurers for hospital emergency-room rape kits and examinations. The policy so outraged the Alaska Legislature that in 2000 it passed unanimously a bill forbidding such fees. But Palin has never explained why, under her leadership, the town stopped picking up the cost of the swabs, specimen containers, and tests. A spokeswoman for Palin wrote to USA Today that Palin "does not believe, nor has she ever believed, that rape victims should have to...

Maybe now I should wait for the knock on the door, but I don’t think they will knock first. They will probably just take my harddrive to see what other NEWS I am reading.

    You Sleep Less Than You Think You Do White Women Sleep Most, Black Men Sleep Least By Daniel DeNoon WebMD Medical News Reviewed By Louise Chang, MD on Thursday, July 06, 2006 July 6, 2006 -- You're getting less sleep than you think, a study of 669 people in Chicago, shows. Ask most folks, and they'll say they get less sleep than they like. But if you then ask how long they sleep, they're likely to say they get more sleep than they really do. That's what University of Chicago researcher Diane S. Lauderdale, PhD, and colleagues found when they...

    Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania found that sleep benefits an individual's ability to recall recently learned declarative memories, even when recall of these memories is challenged hours later by competing information. This finding is particularly important for individuals with mentally demanding lifestyles, such as doctors, medical residents and college students, who often do not get adequate amounts of sleep. The study appears in the July 11, 2006 issue of Current Biology. Declarative memories, or hippocampus-mediated memories, are types of memories about facts and events that can generally be put into words....

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..
