    NASA wants to jump-start development of landers to take humans to the Moon After more than a year of talk about returning humans to the Moon, NASA is asking the aerospace community to come up with designs for landers that can transport astronauts to the lunar surface. NASA’s goal is to test out these vehicles on the Moon as early as 2024 and then use them to take people to the lunar surface by 2028

    Late-term abortion is legal in most states when a woman's "mental health" is considered to be at risk. In this case, we explore the two most common types of late-term abortion, describing, in detail, the process for each. We will also look at the history and current status of abortion law across the country.

    The Thursday Energy Update (Because Energy Fuels our Lives) Just when you thought the ongoing Climate Scam couldn’t possibly get any more absurd in its fantasy-based thought, in steps Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (AOC). After AOC rolled out her “plan” – in the form of a long, amateurishly-written non-binding resolution – ” Dan Kish, distinguished senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research, described it best: “A six-page, non-binding resolution marketed as a ‘War Plan’ proves Congressman Cortez isn’t prepared and hasn’t done her homework,” he said, “Running the world’s greatest economy on unicorn farts and rainbow stew all run by...

    Materialists are just waking up to realities that ID advocates have been writing about for decades.The late Robert Jastrow ended his book God and the Astronomers (1978) with a picturesque quote about scientific progress: For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries. A similar thing could be written...

    The Daily Signal ^ | February 4, 2019 | Tony Perkins
    Parents used to worry about “peer pressure” encouraging their kids to experiment with alcohol or drugs, or to have sex. Now, they have to worry that it may encourage their kids (especially daughters) to change sex altogether. If you are a parent of a child or teenager, you owe it to yourself to read World magazine’s latest cover story, which addresses the relatively new but expanding phenomenon of “rapid-onset gender dysphoria,” abbreviated “ROGD.” Advocates for the LGBT movement have long argued that you can diagnose “gender dysphoria” in children who are “consistent, insistent, and persistent” in expressing a discomfort with...

    The Great Recession Blog ^ | February 3, 2019 | David Haggith
    I wrote months ago about the coming mini ice age. Recently the reality of this cooling trend became mainstream news because of a new scientific study affirming it, and even more recently, the midwest decided to remind us of what mini ice ages might feel like. The reason for all of this is told here: The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018, and the sun’s ultraviolet output has sharply dropped. New research shows that Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding. “We see a cooling trend,” says...

    Shale Magazine ^ | David Blackmon
    The Alpine High has always been there — well, it’s been there for several hundred million years, anyway — just waiting for the right team of scientists to come along and find it. As things turned out, it took a team staffed by people with little or no prior experience in the Permian/Delaware Basin to make the discovery. I first interviewed Keenan in August, 2016, shortly after Apache had made the initial announcement of the major new discovery, for a piece published on Forbes.com. During that interview, Keenan pointed to his team’s lack of previous experience in the region as...

    Big League Politics ^ | 10/20/19 | Peter D'Abrosca
    According to a source inside of #NeverTrump stalwart National Review, who spoke to Big League Politics on the condition of anonymity, the magazine is in turmoil after publishing a now-deleted piece bashing the Covington Catholic High School students. Deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich penned a piece called “The Covington Students Might as Well Have Just Spit on the Cross,” which was published at 3 a.m. on Sunday. “The guy who posted that did it at 3am without running it by anyone,” an employee familiar wit the situation told Big League Politics. The source said that editor Rich Lowry is “deeply...

    The Organic Prepper ^ | January 2, 2019 | Daisy Luther
    A clinical trial called “Ambrosia” seeks to discover the long-sought Fountain of Youth – and some scientists believe they’ve found it in the blood of young people. Unlike most clinical trials, people actually paid to participate instead of the other way around. Patients over the age of 35 ponied up $8000 to take part in the experiment where they get transfusions of young blood, run by Dr. Jesse Karmazin. People are getting transfusions of “young blood” to slow aging. Unsurprisingly, the business “experiment” is taking place in Monterrey, California, right on the edge of Silicon Valley. . . . And...

    Twin Mustang Restoration ^ | Monday, January 7, 2019 | Tom Reilly
    On 31 December 2018, our XP-82 Twin Mustang flew for the first time since 14 December 1949. Although it wasn’t supposed to fly yesterday, all that was planned to do was the last FAA required runway high-speed taxi test, lift off for a second or two and then back down, deploy full flaps and brake to a stop. It accelerated so fast after the planned lift off that Ray, our test pilot, realized that getting it back down and stopping it in the remaining runway would be marginal. So he pushed the power back up and flew for about five...

    Janitor's view ^ | 01/07/19 | Reasonmclucus
    Most of this was previously posted. Some of the links may no longer work.]. Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe and Urban Renaissance Institute, has reported that Enron played a major role in pushing the global warming scam, including establishing the Kyoto Protocals. Enron had already profited from trading sulfur dioxide credits and saw the potential for even greater profits from trading what would become known as "carbon credits". The article is the first in a series of articles about those who seek to profit from what Weather Channel founder John Coleman calls "the greatest scam in history." It's...
  • Give your mind a workout -- what we already know about time travel

    Time travel -- it is of course a subject central to science fiction. Most of us probably believe it might one day become possible. It does not seem to be that close to becoming a reality. There are, apparently, laboratory experiments with mysterious sub-atomic particles that demonstrate the existence of time travel on a limited basis. But as to human beings getting into a time machine and ending up in their future or past, we don't have anything like that available. But we do already know some things about time travel, from what we can observe around us. (1) If...

    I’m looking for someone who is familiar with Probability Trees to confirm a model I am working on. Although this problem is depicted as switches, logic and bulbs, it is anything but. In the near future I’m going to have to make a potential life altering decision (don’t want to discuss in public) and am looking for someone to confirm that my math is correct. Here is a summary of the problem, the diagram shows what I’m attempting to describe below. There are two switches (A and B) that can be set in only one of four combinations. For simplicity...

    FISHERS — Tens of thousands of jobs available in Indiana right now are tech jobs, but many people who could fill those positions just don’t have the right skills like knowing how to code. Eleven Fifty Academy in Fishers is looking to change that as they’ve already launched, changed, and enhanced the careers of hundreds of Hoosiers, including Autumn Henderson. As a young mother, Henderson wanted to find a career that she was passionate about, and that would pay the bills. “I was really worried for a long time,” Henderson said. “My parents were gracious enough to let me stay...
