  • We Always Thought This Dinosaur Was a Vegetarian, Then We Found Its Front Teeth

    We now know what the missing teeth would have looked like at the front of this jaw. Eden, Janine and Jim/CC BY 2.0Until this week, Pachycephalosaurus seemed like a friendly neighborhood herbivore. The scariest thing about these dinosaurs, which have been frequently depicted placidly munching on greenery, was the unique architecture of their skulls: domed, sloping, pointy around the edges, and 10 inches thick. They might have butted heads, but that didn’t make them seem dangerous, exactly.But now, new research presented at a Society of Vertebrate Paleontology conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, raises the specter that Pachycephalosaurus was a...

    U.S. Democratic Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema promoted events at Arizona State University featuring a lawyer convicted for aiding an Islamist terror organization and its leader. Sinema, a co-founder of the activist group Local to Global Justice, invited people in a now-closed Yahoo group to attend two events with Lynn Stewart, both in 2003. At the time of the invite, Stewart had been charged with helping her former client Omar Abdel Rahman, a radical Egyptian spiritual leader of a terror group, to pass on secret messages to his followers to commit terror attacks. In the first event’s invite, Sinema said the...
  • New recording from 2011 of Kyrsten Sinema implying Arizona produces: 'Crazy'

    Republican activists on Thursday released a video of Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a centrist Democrat now running for an open Arizona U.S. Senate seat, advising liberal activists how to "stop your state from becoming like Arizona." The surreptitious recording dates from 2011, after Arizona Republicans had passed SB1070, a controversial immigration law that led to nationwide boycotts and concern even among some Arizona Republicans that the Legislature had moved too far right. Those concerns led to a recall against the then-senate president Russell Pearce, whom Sinema blamed in her remarks for much of the discord. But the talk also contains unusually...

    ...With a record of 2-11, the silver-and-Honolulu blue are firmly entrenched at No. 32 on any power poll in this spiral arm of the galaxy. Entrenched, that is, until another loss drops them behind Ohio State, Florida and the Hamburg Sea Devils. Think it can't get worse? Hey, this is the Lions. NFL schedule makers saw fit to arrange the endgame Kitty Cats' so, so long season likewise: at the Green Bay Packers where the Lions haven't won since a guy named Brett Favre took over there (that's right, 1992); against the Chicago Bears in a game which figures to...

    Former US president Barack Obama on Friday warned against rising nationalism as he painted a grim picture of American and global politics on a visit to Denmark. “I’m concerned enough about the international and American trends that I thought it was important to offer my views,” he told entrepreneurs and students in the Danish central city of Kolding. “When you start seeing our politics driven completely free of facts, when you start seeing a debate that is driven solely on racial or nationalistic impulses, when you start seeing a rejection of science and expertise and logic in politics... we are...

    Former Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, said Monday he was not responsible for a racially inflammatory post that stirred up a storm on social media, and said it was posted by a staffer. “Earlier today a staff member inadvertently posted an offensive cartoon on my social media,” he tweeted. “I do not make my own social media posts and when I discovered the mistake it was immediately deleted. - Ron Paul.” The cartoon pictured caricatures of ethnic minorities all punching Uncle Sam under the words “CULTURAL MARXISM!” The caption on the tweet read, “Are you stunned by what has become of...

    US President Donald Trump announced a sweeping new space policy on Monday that will focus both on reducing satellite clutter in space as well as creating a specific “Space Force” as the newest branch of the military. “It is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space,” said Trump, saying that he wished to revive the US’ flagging space program that has been bogged down by rising costs and a lack of political will. Trump said he does not want “China and Russia and other countries leading us.” […] He also...

    When Angela Merkel visited her party’s parliamentary group in mid-April, she didn’t talk about how she wants to change the pension system. Tolls on German highways were also not on her list, nor were all the problems with diesel emissions in the country. She didn’t even complain about the Christian Social Union (CSU), the outspoken Bavarian sister party to her Christian Democrats. Instead, she wanted to talk about the Peace of Augsburg, signed in 1555. […] […] If you look at the world through her lens, the riders of the apocalypse are already appearing on the horizon.

    President Donald Trump said Sunday that he will “demand” this week that the Justice Department open an investigation into whether the FBI infiltrated his presidential campaign for political purposes and whether any demands or requests for such action originated with the Obama administration. Trump tweeted: “I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes — and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” The Justice Department declined to comment.

    The morning of April 3 started as every other day when Kew Gardens resident M.K. Moore went out to walk his dogs, but on Metropolitan Avenue near Park Lane South, he began to see the shattered glass. According to Moore, president of the Friends of Forest Park civic group, as many as 20 cars had shattered windows along Park Lane South all the way to 115th Street. Inside the cars, glove compartments and center consoles had been ripped open and peoples’ belongings were scattered out onto the sidewalk, Moore said. A police source confirmed that eight reports of criminal mischief...

    Trump administration officials said Monday they’re crafting a new legislative package aimed at closing immigration “loopholes,” hours after the president called on Republicans in Congress to immediately pass a border bill using the “Nuclear Option if necessary” to muscle it through. “Border Patrol Agents (and ICE) are GREAT, but the weak Dem laws don’t allow them to do their job. Act now Congress, our country is being stolen!” President Donald Trump wrote in a series of sometimes-misleading tweets, fired off after returning from a holiday weekend spent in Florida with several immigration hardliners. Trump also declared protections for so-called Dreamer...

    Amid recent chatter that Trump could fire special counsel Robert Mueller, Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) both suggested Tuesday that if the president took that step, impeachment would be the appropriate response. Graham and Flake’s commitments to this position were hardly rock-solid and may well not be shared by very many other Republicans in the Senate (or the House of Representatives, which is where the impeachment process would have to begin). Still, the statements are a significant warning to Trump from two members of his own party about how Mueller’s dismissal could end for him. First, when...

    FULL TITLE: Colin Kaerpernick 'has hired celebrity lawyer Mark Geragos to sue NFL owners for colluding against hiring him' Colin Kaepernick will sue NFL owners for not hiring him after he kicked off the controversial practice of kneeling for the national anthem, reports claim. 'I am told that @Kaepernick7 has filed a grievance under the CBA for collusion against the owners. If accurate, this is huge,' Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman wrote on Twitter. Kaepernick, 29, has retained Mark Geragos, who has represented Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and Winona Ryder, among others, and is expected to release a statement soon. Scroll...

    Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he's being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season.

    Protests over racial inequality, centered on the national anthem, cropped up across the league on Sunday, following comments made by President Donald Trump on Friday night. In light of incendiary comments made by the President, players on every team in the NFL opted to demonstrate during the anthem. Some teams, such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks, opted not to take the field at all during what has become a pregame tradition... In the moments before the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the full organization briefly dropped to one knee together. After several seconds, they stood and retreated to...

Gutierrez of Illinois and Adriano Espaillat of New York were arrested on civil disobedience charges. Melissa Mark-Viverito, speaker of the New York City Council, and six other protesters were also arrested.

    Two governors are mulling a bipartisan presidential bid in 2020 to challenge President Trump, according to a new report. Axios reported on Friday that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) are mulling a presidential bid in 2020, with Kasich likely at the top of the ticket. According to a source close to the negotiations, the discussions arose after the two governors got to know each other in conferences after the 2016 elections.

    The Democrats are working on a re-brand following their near-spectacular collapse from the days when they controlled the entirety of the legislative and executive branches, and are set to officially unveil a new slogan for the 2018 elections: "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages."The slogan will be officially unveiled on Monday, per Vox's Jeff Stein.If this sounds familiar, it's basically a rip-off of the tagline of the pizza chain Papa John's, which is "Better ingredients, better pizza."While this is truly a terrible slogan, at least it's not anything the DNCC was toying around with at the beginning...
