  • Trump Will Be Running Against the VP Nominee and All Signs Are Pointing to Kamala Harris(Barfy!)

    Joe Cunningham at RedState had an interesting observation. There seems to be a link between the updates to an individual’s Wikipedia page and the selection of a nominee for vice president. In his analysis, Senator Kamala Harris is the current frontrunner to join Joe Biden on the ticket. Shortly after Harris endorsed Biden and appeared with him in Detroit, commentator Scott Adams also noted a few things. The senator has a new haircut, a new wardrobe, and has clearly gotten some professional coaching in public speaking. The annoying cackle is absent, and she seemed more measured. His bet at the...

    An increasing number of firms are rushing to manufacture hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), the anti-malarial drug being used widely in the treatment of Covid-19 patients across the world, and now India, too. The Food and Drug Control Administration (FDCA) of Gujarat issued permits to 68 pharmaceutical firms to manufacture HCQ tablets in the state. “In past one and a half months, 68 pharmaceutical companies have received product licences to make HCQ tablets of varied dosages in Gujarat,” HG Koshia, commissioner of Gujarat FDCA, said. Companies like Sun Pharma, Intas Pharmaceuticals, Saga Lifesciences Limited, Norris Medicines, Ellis Pharmaceuticals, Jaimin Remedies, and Lincoln Pharma...

    Coins dating from the Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire (66 CE-70 CE) were discovered by archeologists during excavations near the southern wall of the Temple Mount on Monday, according to the Israel Nature and Parks Authority. The archeological dig, run by Dr. Eilat Mazar of the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, uncovered dozens of bronze coins measuring approximately 1.5 cm., as well as numerous fragments of pottery vessels. The vessels, mainly jars and cooking pots, were left behind by Jewish residents who hid in a large cave that measured seven meters by 14 m. The...

    The idea that the worldwide lockdown of virtually every country other than Sweden may have been an enormous mistake strikes many -- including world leaders; most scientists, especially health officials, doctors and epidemiologists; those who work in major news media; opinion writers in those media; and the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people who put their faith in these people -- as so preposterous as to be immoral. Timothy Egan of The New York Times described Republicans who wish to enable their states to open up as "the party of death." That's the way it is today on...

    The early settlement of anatomically modern humans in MSEA dates back to at least 65 thousand years ago (kya) and is associated with the formation of a hunter-gatherer tradition called Hoabinhian.

    (CNN)Bollywood star Irrfan Khan, known internationally for his roles in "Life Of Pi" and "Slumdog Millionaire," died Wednesday, his representatives confirmed. He was 53. "It's saddening that this day, we have to bring forward the news of him passing away," read a statement from Khan's PR agency, Hardly Anonymous Communications. "Irrfan was a strong soul, someone who fought till the very end and always inspired everyone who came close to him." Khan, one of India's best-known and most beloved actors, revealed in March 2018 that he had been diagnosed with a rare neuroendocrine tumor -- an abnormal growth that begin...
  • Biden insiders slam Stacey Abrams’ veep pitch: ‘No one takes Stacey seriously’

    05/03/2020 11:28:40 AM PDT · by Conserv · 46 replies
    Stacey Abrams, a former Georgia State House leader, is aggressively marketing herself as a potential vice president for Joe Biden — increasingly irritating those in the former veep’s orbit, an insider said. Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has her sights set on something else — secretary of defense, say those familiar with her plans. “If they go with a black woman, it would be Kamala Harris, but she’s a clunky communicator and couldn’t generate any excitement for her own campaign with black or white voters,” the Biden insider said.” While campaigning for vice president traditionally requires a delicate dance of private...

    Democratic Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar -- self-styled feminists who bought every flimsy claim made against now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh -- have chosen to stand by Joe Biden in the face of a sexual assault allegation made against him by a former staffer. The MeToo movement, which followed a New York Times' expose on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein's abuse and degradation of women in the entertainment industry, was supposed to prove that the feminist movement was a moral entity committed to fair treatment of women, even when big Democratic figures...
  • Kamala Harris: Distribution of pandemic resources should be based on race. Says Americans 'don’t want to call the problem what it is because they don’t like the form of the solution'

    Wednesday on TBS’s “Full Frontal,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) called for coronavirus pandemic resources passed by Congress to be distributed based on race. Harris said, “The disparities that have long existed based on race are now highlighted so of the things I’m calling for around this pandemic is that we make decisions about where the resources should go based on that issue.” Host Samantha Bee asked, “Why do you think so many other members of Congress have so much trouble calling this systemic racism? Is it because they have never faced anything like this in their entire natural born lives?”...

    India has ordered all public and private sector employees use a government-backed contact tracing app and maintain social distancing in offices as it begins easing some of its lockdown measures in districts less affected by the coronavirus. . . . The app has been downloaded around 83 million times in total in a country with a smartphone user base of about 500 million, according to the technology ministry. The app’s compulsory use is raising concerns among privacy advocates, who say it is unclear how the data will be used and who stress that India lacks privacy laws to govern the...
  • Is Roy Spencer the World’s Most Important Scientist?

    Roy Spencer is a climate scientist at the University of Alabama-Huntsville who may be the world’s most important scientist. He has discovered scientific insights and theories that cast great doubt on global warming doctrine. That doctrine has always been dubious and is often defended by attacking the integrity of anyone who dares to raise questions. Spencer is a rare combination of a brilliant scientist and a brave soul willing to risk his livelihood and reputation by speaking plainly. The global warming promoters say we must scrap the world’s energy infrastructure in favor of green energy. They say that burning coal,...

    The Russian pipe laying vessel Academic Cherskiy has reached Danish waters on a journey that began on the other side of the world earlier this year. Russia sent the vessel in a bid to complete the Nord Stream 2 pipeline to bring natural gas directly from Russia into Germany and onto other European countries. Its a move that's been opposed by the United States, which wants to sell liquefied natural gas made in the USA to Europe. To make the point the US imposed sanctions on any companies helping to build the pipeline with President Trump signing the legislation..... Canadian...

    Rock shelter No. 6, where the unfortunate ungulate and its innards were depicted, was the richest in art of the sites newly explored. It had 76 paintings, many of animals and people, as well as a flower and some sort of bird. "The bird figure found at Maser is similar to a crane or a saurus, but it is faded and difficult to identify," Shaik says. There are other images too eroded to identify at all. The deer with legs akimbo and stylized innards was painted together with one human figure bearing a bow and arrows walking toward it, and...

    Sen. Kamala Harris declared the 2020 election is “literally” a matter of life and death during a virtual town hall for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “Elections matter,” Mrs. Harris, California Democrat, told Biden campaign senior adviser Symone Sanders. “We have seen a president in Donald Trump who lies to the American people, who does not embrace truth or speak truth, someone who is obviously so much more concerned about himself than the people he represents. And we have seen a failure of leadership that’s resulted in great damage to our country. “The pandemic is not over, it’s going...

    When it comes to pizza in India, Domino’s Pizza is the clear leader. The restaurant chain found its success in India the same way it won the pizza wars in the United States: delivery and technology. Domino’s entered India in 1995 at a time when the country was just beginning to open up its economy to the rest of the world. India removed subsidies on some items, lowered certain import duties and invited in foreign competition. With globalization came American brands like Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Domino’s. Jubilant FoodWorks, Domino’s franchisee, said it was the first food service company...

  • BBC Primates viewers marvel as a macaque SLAPS a giant squirrel in a fight over a 10kg jackfruit in the trees of India's Western Ghats mountain range

    Viewers were left in stitches as a lion-tailed macaque repeatedly slapped a giant squirrel in a fight over an enormous jackfruit on last night's episode of BBC1's Primates. The 'marvellous' moment happened during a segment about the macaques living in the Western Ghats mountain range in India. It showed how lion-tailed macaques took advantage of the Malabar giant squirrel's sense of smell to locate ripe jackfruit and steal it from them. Using a surprisingly simple technique, the macaque simply batted the squirrel repeatedly on the nose to keep it away from the food.
