Dire wolves are actually ice age mega-foxes
arclein, Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
Labels matter and we do well to associate the so called dire wolf with the better Dire Fox. Our understanding of the dog genus is wrapped around the real power of pack behavior. We have exploited that with the dog and feared the wolf for good reason because of it. Yet we can dismiss the fox out of hand as zero threat to us. We never tried to seriously tame them because their teeth are scary sharp and their behavior does not fit in well with social situations. Rather like an over sized weasel or ferret. The ferret has been tamed as a rodent control officer and that is it. Th...

* British campuses have an Islamism problem* But university leaders think it is Islamophobic to talk about it. Britain has not yet woken up to the magnitude of Islamic radicalisation in our universities. A 2019 document published by four major UK universities (Durham, Coventry, Lancaster and SOAS), titled Islam and Muslims on UK University Campuses: Perceptions and Challenges, talks for 70 pages about how Muslims are unfairly subject to Islamophobia on campus. It even suggests that discussing the problem of Islamic radicalisation on campus is a contributor to this Islamophobia. ...

Can Merrick Garland Stay Impartial as Attorney General? Unlikely.
Joshua Holzer, The National Interest - 22 hours ago
*Joshua Holzer* *Politics, The Americas* Despite claims that Garland will act independently, history suggests that this is unlikely to be the case. Five years after he was nominated to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, is President-elect Biden’s choice to lead the Justice Department as the next attorney general. Previously, Biden has vowed that the Justice Department under his administration will be “totally independent” of him. He has stated that “the person or persons I pick to run that depart...

WallStreetBets Reddit & Robinhood: a herd distorting the markets
LuboŇ° Motl, The Reference Frame - 13 hours ago
Even a broken herd may be right about once a decade I have been aware of the insane Tesla and Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) bubbles which show how (mostly) the Millennial generation makes the markets – or at least the price discovery – dysfunctional. But those are just the most extreme tips of an iceberg. This new culture of hyper-conformist obedient sheep that are tied to the social media has an effect on many other corners of the financial markets. Well, sometimes the effect may be healthy and push the prices towards fairer values (but I believe that it is mostly a coincide...

David Konisky, The National Interest - 23 hours ago
*David Konisky* *Environment, The Americas* The agency’s toolkit for taking on environmental injustice is limited. That could change. On his first day in office President Joe Biden started signing executive orders to reverse Trump administration policies.

*Lena Surzhko Harned* *Politics, * If Russian media outlets are to be believed, there are no longer any beacons of democracy left in the world. The storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, which was Christmas Eve for Eastern Orthodox Christians, was a perfect holiday gift for Russian politicians and state-controlled Russian media. While President Vladimir Putin has remained silent so far, reaction from political leaders was instantaneous, and the topic has dominated Russian news coverage ever since. Maria Zakharova, a spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said that whil...

China Is Wasting No Time In Testing Biden
Francis Menton, Manhattan Contrarian - 1 day ago
* If you were to consider a job description of the President of the United States, about 80% of it would involve issues of national defense and foreign policy — dealing with the other countries of the world, and keeping America safe. All of the responsibility for defense and foreign policy of the United States is under the personal control of whoever is the President. * Whatever else you might have thought of him, and whether or not you agreed with his approach on any given issue, President Trump at least took his responsibilities in these areas seriously. * Now we have Joe Biden.
