    House Democrats are giving young gun safety advocates an opportunity to spend the summer in Washington exploring whether their activism could lead to a career. House Democratic leaders on Thursday announced a new gun safety internship program designed for students from Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where a teen gunman killed 17 people in February, and other schools that have been affected by gun violence. Democratic caucus chairman Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) and vice chair Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.), as well as Rep. Mike Thompson (D-Calif.), who chairs a House task force on gun violence prevention, and Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.)...

    - snip - Knick, who purchased the farm in 1970 to raise horses, denies Vail ever personally spoke to her. She claims she first caught wind of the issue in 2008, when it was was being discussed at public meetings. The Vails, she noted Monday, are “politically connected” in the area. In 2012, Scott Township supervisors passed an ordinance that in essence granted public access to private cemeteries during daylight hours; landowners could be fined $300 to $600 per day if they didn’t comply. J. David Breemer, an attorney with Pacific Legal Foundation representing Knick, said Scott Township’s action is...

    Pondering Isaiah’s Advice to Close Our Eyes Lest We “Look on Evil” Msgr. Charles Pope • May 24, 2018 • In this age of nearly instantaneous communication, there is an overwhelming amount of news and information available to us. There is nothing wrong with news and information, but each of us must decide how much exposure, in terms of time and content, is good for us. Not all “Breaking News!” is really that urgent. Too much news can distract us, overwhelm us, and provoke anxiety and anger. Further, the “news” is heavily filtered to feature what is bad, strange,...

    Gilead Sciences, Inc. announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved once-daily oral emtricitabine 200 mg/tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg (Truvada) in combination with safe sex practices, to reduce the risk of sexually acquired HIV-1 in at-risk adolescents. (snip) The addition of the adolescent indication is backed by a single-arm, open-label clinical trial, ATN113, conducted in HIV-negative individuals 15–17 years old by the Adolescent Medicine Trials Network for HIV/Aids. [emphasis added] (snip) In the study, 61 HIV-1 negative young men who have sex with men, 15–17 years old, received Truvada once daily for PrEP.

  • McCain Will Probably Retire After Next Week

    05/25/2018 7:15:29 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 63 replies
    Once May 31st is past, John McCain will be free to retire and have his successor appointed by the governor. Gotta avoid that pesky election thing where the people would choose his successor. And supposedly, he's already given the governor a list of who he'd like to succeed him (his wife or daughter probably being at the top of the list). So his successor (whoever it is) can get successfully entrenched in the office by the next election (2020). The people be damned! Then John McCain can die in peace, and the Oligarchy can continue.

    Testimony begins this morning in the retrial of a San Antonio man accused in a grisly killing in 2014 of another man who was beaten, suffocated, his body cut up and some of his remains burned on a barbecue grill. The trial of Daniel Moreno Lopez, 32, began March 27, 2017, and proceedings were halted two days later. He is one of three defendants charged with killing Jose Luis Menchaca, 35, who was beaten with aluminum baseball bats, his limbs cut off and grilled on a barbecue pit. Authorities found parts of Menchaca’s body Oct. 6, 2014, in trash bags...

    America’s current economic situation is not one of financial security or encouraging growth. Below the surface of our 106+ month-long “recovery,” now the second longest on record, is a sense of anxious anarchy in American households. Working men and women are struggling to make ends meet and many are simply not working at all. The real story that is not being told by the mainstream media is how close we are to an epic collapse. You have to work! Not sure if you have been following this story or not, but a 30-year-old man from New York has just been...

    President Donald Trump signaled Friday that U.S. and North Korean officials have reengaged in talks, praising their latest statement expressing a willingness to reenter discussions “at any time, at any format" just a day after he canceled the historic summit with their leader, Kim Jong Un. "We're going to see what happens. We're talking to them now," Trump said when asked by reporters outside the White House if the meeting with Kim is still on. "It was a very nice statement they put out. We'll see what happens." The president also suggested that a summit could still occur on June...

  • Is 100 Percent Renewable Energy Possible?

    05/25/2018 6:47:00 AM PDT · by rktman · 40 replies ^ | 5/25/2018 | Norman Rogers
    The people who are best described as members of a renewable energy cult are lately promoting the idea that we should run the country on 100% renewable energy, whatever that is. I say "whatever that is" because different branches of the cult have different definitions of renewable energy. It seems to be a matter of fashion and prejudice. One definition of renewable energy is that it is naturally replenished on a human timescale. Solar energy and wind energy fit in nicely with that definition. Most fans of renewable energy explicitly reject renewable hydroelectricity if it involves damming a river. Most...

    You don't need to believe that the special counsel investigating President Donald Trump is a terrible person to conclude that the Obama administration and Clinton machine (and later their holdovers during the Trump administration) politicized and weaponized federal agencies to protect Hillary Clinton and damage Trump. So if you just can't shake your instinct that Robert Mueller is the epitome of virtue and professionalism, hold fast to it, but consider the litany of facts that prove serious and abundant malfeasance on the part of the Obama-Clinton "deep state" actors. The Department of Justice, especially the FBI, bent over backward to...
