Ending sexism

179614 A claim, and she used it to get affirmative action admissions to her colleges. IIRC. Well, she didn't do it until after college + law school, so, no? Someone looked into it. I can't read this article. My understanding was that it helped in her employment. This is less about her claiming it i...

Roadtrips + Insects

Reading more on this article, it looks like their mixing data collection methodologies. I don't know why people thing this is acceptable without loads of peer reviewed studies showing that they can draw consistent data. They do the same thing with global warming comparing tree rings to satellite dat...

Roadtrips + Insects

I don't know where they are, but we're pretty overrun with birds here. I suspect our methods of counting have improved and we're finding that earlier "estimates" were pretty bad. That's far more likely than this mystical loss of habitat and global warming, etc, etc.

Why Greeks question this role model's credentials

The grift is a lot easier to pull off when the media desperately wants to believe it.

Then why are they crying in their soy lattes about how much they owe in college debt?

Meanwhile, the opposition in her state seem to be asking reasonable questions like: -Where is the money for t...

The UFO thread

Okay, I've read about a third of it so far. I used to experience these night terrors and always felt like something was coming and getting me in the middle of the night. When I was 4 it was the Sandman. Later it was ghosts, then some sort of human home intruder and at some point aliens. Turns out it...

I don't think racism is a left/right issue as much as a human condition issue, but when was the last time a republican or conservative got into trouble for being in blackface?

Now they've changed their story to "it was a rep of Kavanaugh".

I've never seen so many reporters burn their reputations to the ground in such a short period of time compared to these last three years. It's been insane.

I'm fascinated by the stories. I think the Navy admitting that they never really intended for those to be released was intriguing. It will shape up to be a great story once we know more. But saying it should be on the front page of every news site is a bit premature. That's like saying every newspap...

Yeah, confirming that they were UFOs really only translates to "something was there and we don't know what it was".

I'm okay with targeted strikes. If they can take out some of the infrastructure that was used to stage and deliver the strike on the Saudis, I'm okay with that limited response.

Gordon and Vince are correct that, in this case, the writers are in the wrong. The fact that they refused to meet with him proves what their motivations for the book are, and it has nothing to do with the truth. Which is why he was suspicious of them to begin with. Also, I find even the accusation ...

The article/book/news is literally about this person, we're not looking for a background source or anything. People have been speaking to reporters off the record for decades. Even for books. It's not like this is some new phenomenon. Quite often a subject can make connections that are part of the ...

I just like that this actually removes the local monopolies from the equation as compared to local cable. I think the broadcasters have been losing ad revenue. Used to be that Nielsen only counted live broadcasts viewed. Don't know if that's still true, but still part of the issue as people FF throu...
