Dozens of cancer victims settle tainted groundwater suit in Florida.
More than three dozen former factory workers have settled their multimillion-dollar five-year legal battle against Siemens Corp. and General Dynamics Corp. over trichloroethene and other toxic chemicals they allege the companies carelessly dumped into drinking water, causing them to develop cancer.

Keep Canned Soups From Sticking in the Can with a Knife
Many thicker canned soups such as tomato or cream of whatever soup have a tendency to stick to the inside of the can and must usually be scraped out with a spoon. Vimeo user Wes Kennedy found that once you remove the lid you can have these soups pour easily by puncturing the back of the can with a knife or other sharp object. More »


Iran Drumbeat Watch: Really Getting Ready for War?
A few days ago I argued that a U.S. strike against Iran would be a more reckless step than any modern President has taken, and therefore is unlikely -- and that the threatened Israeli strike would be so self-destructive of Israel's long-term interests that "even" PM Netanyahu was likely to hold back. One reader replied that a "psychological inversion" may have already occur
Leon Wieseltier Thinks You Can Never Have Enough War
I haven’t read Rachel Maddow’s new book, Drift.  That is because, unlike The New Republic's Leon Wieseltier, I am not a book critic. I am a national security professional.  This means that – also unlike Wieseltier – I spend my days immersed in the thinking and writing of defense experts and policymakers – in the U.S. government, in the military, in other nations, in the non-governmental sector.

How godlike do I want to be? Some observations on first person versus third person, and a question for you writer types
No, it has nothing to do with the post, but c'mon, I'm trying to sell books here. Up until my last novel, I’d never written in first person much beyond the occasional flash fiction piece.

I’d always been a third-person guy, liked being able
RIP, Britannica
So the Encyclopedia Britannica is dead. OK, not dead, just digital, but it’s all the same to me. I suppose it makes sense. The idea of a printed work that summarizes all the world’s meaningful knowledge was always a bit presumptuous, but the speed with which science and technology now make obsolete existing information has hammered a steep Malthusian angle into the learning curve.

The religious right and their traditional family of lies
From the Texas Patriots' Tea Party web site. No, of course they aren't promoting a theocracy. The phrase “traditional family values” is the sheep’s clothing of the religious right, their thinly veiled attempt to disguise their aim to remake America into a fundamentalist theocracy in which their religious beliefs and preferences are encoded into law.  Which raises a few questions.

Long Range Missiles Of Any Kind
I have previously noted the importance of reading very, very closely the utterances of the Great Fitzpatrick.

Getting reality in your TV: characterization, continuity, and competence

China puts the brakes on GE rice
A raging public controversy over genetically engineered (GE) rice in China captured media attention in recent months, and has culminated in a surprising win.
