Melania had to remind Donald to put his hand over his heart for the national anthem
Being President is hard! There's lots to learn about healthcare , history , and what the job entails . With all that swirling around, it's easy to forget things like, oh, let's say, what to do with your hands during the national anthem.

Cotton grows 60% faster with double CO2 and warmed by 7 degrees
CO2Science found a 1999 paper done in China that shows just how awful climate change is for cotton. It’s a major global crop for fibre and oil and when the researchers warmed daytime growing conditions from 27C to 34C the plants seemed pretty happy about it as they grew faster and bigger. But if CO2 levels doubled as well, in hot conditions plant growth was up 60%. (Panic now. It’s a internationa

Stop swooning over Justin Trudeau. The man is a disaster for the planet | Bill McKibben
Donald Trump is a creep and unpleasant to look at, but at least he’s not a stunning hypocrite when it comes to climate change Donald Trump is so spectacularly horrible that it’s hard to look away – especially now that he’s discovered bombs. But precisely because everyone’s staring gape-mouthed in his direction, other world leaders are able to get away with almost anything. Don’t believe me? Look
Nuclear war has become thinkable again – we need a reminder of what it means | Paul Mason
As Trump faces down North Korea, it’s alarming to think that most of the world’s nuclear warheads are now in the hands of men who are prepared to use them Last week, Donald Trump deployed his superweapon Moab, the “mother of all bombs” – 10 tonnes of high explosive detonated in mid-air in such a way as to kill, it is claimed, 94 Isis militants. The Russian media immediately reminded us that their
North Korea Offers Unconditional Surrender After Mike Pence Angrily Squints at It

How School Choice Turns Education Into a Commodity
Buoyed by Donald Trump’s championing of a voucher system—and cheered on by his education secretary Betsy DeVos—Arizona just passed one of the country's most thoroughgoing policies in favor of so-called “school of choice.” The legislation signed by Governor Doug Ducey allows students who withdraw from the public system to use their share of state funding for private school, homeschooling, or onlin
Donald Trump’s big problem is he doesn’t know what he’s talking about
At least it’s one of his problems. Donald Trump doesn’t know what he’s talking about. This became clear when he said he realized dealing with North Korea was “not so easy” after 10 minutes with the Chinese president. Dealing with complicated problems is an occupational hazard faced by outsiders in all fields — and there’s never been a president who is more of an outsider to the realm of public po

We also talked about levels of evidence, the gathering of that evidence, and what forms it would t

The other day as I was working on something else, I came across a note that triggered (or in today’s world, with triggered having degenerated into a political term, maybe I should say inspired… or inclined, but I digress…) a random thought or two.

ontario librarians: should the ola support staffless libraries?
This week, the Toronto Public Library announced plans to open libraries with no staff. Not just no librarians -- we've seen that in many places -- but no staff whatsoever.

The Origin of Science
NOTE: To better understand the following, you might read my review of The Art of Tracking first. Back in the 1800s, folks on the cutting edge of Western science were perplexed. Evolution had apparently provided hunter-gatherers with essentially the same brains that we moderns have, yet they appeared to be severely retarded — no clear-cuts, mines, cities, insane asylums. What was wrong with them?

As most of you know by now, Paul Craig Roberts was Associate Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy under Ronald Reagan and later Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal, but with the turn of the Century he gave up such lucrative positions to expose the corruption of the U.S. government and it's intention to conquer the rest of the world or die on a nuclear holocost that would extinguish the human race. Here, Greg Hunter, who is deeply conserned with these issues, interviews Paul Craig Roberts in an extended video. Don't miss it.
By Greg Hunter’s Former Assistant Treasury Secretary in the Reagan Administration, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, sees trouble for the economy.

Taken from Wikipedia: "The adjective Orwellian connotes an attitude and a policy of control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past." And now, 67 years after the death of George Orwell, we have a famous American university, Harvard, adopting a full-blown Orwellian clamp-down of any American who wants to know and/or spread the Actual Truth!
Harvard University has established a modern version of the Catholic Church’s Index Librorum Prohibitorum , a list of prohibited online publications which are tagged as “fake” and “false”, broadly following the politically tainted “List” of censored independent and alternative media.

Media Tory Lies Stripped Bare by Ashcroft Poll
You would never guess it from the media but Lord Ashcroft’s latest major polling effort strips bare the entire lie about a Tory and Unionist bandwagon rolling in Scotland. You would never guess it from Lord Ashcroft’s Tory agenda-driven report of the findings either. This tendentious nonsense ignores Scotland completely – indeed I do not think he even mentions the nation’s existence. No paid medi
The Balance of Probabilities
Unlike the famous chemical weapons “attack” portrayed by the BBC in Saving Syria’s Children , it does appear that in the latest incident at Idlib there was real horror inflicted by chemical attack of some kind. The question is who did it and why? I am no fan of the Assad regime, and I have no problem using the word “regime” to describe it. Dictators do hold and win elections. I have lived in seve
Ken Livingstone: Stubborn and Wrong, But Not Anti-Semitic
After careful consideration I have decided to venture into the question of Ken Livingstone and his suspension from the Labour Party.

I do not think it even vaguely probable that he is that. I know him only slightly, and have shared a platform
