The Debate Questions? Fair

Jonathan Bernstein at A plain blog about politics - 35 minutes ago
There's an early consensus that, in the words of Jonathan Chait, "Obama enjoyed friendly questions from an audience that obviously leaned left" in the second debate. Naturally, conservatives agree. I thought the questions favored Obama during the debate, but a second look convinced me that it's wrong: the questions were about as fair as it gets. From the "Town Hall" audience questions, I count three that were solidly pro-Obama and one that was somewhat pro-Obama; three solidly pro-Romney and one somewhat pro-Romney; and three neutral ones. So, why the false impression? I think it wa... more »

Everyday Sexism

noreply@blogger.com (fern hill) at DAMMIT JANET! - 47 minutes ago
One way and another, misogyny and sexism have been in the news a lot lately. A few days ago I noticed this Twitter account, @EverydaySexism and its website. The Everyday Sexism Project exists to catalogue instances of sexism experienced by women on a day to day basis. They might be serious or minor, outrageously offensive or so niggling and normalised that you don’t even feel able to protest. Say as much or as little as you like, use your real name or a pseudonym – it’s up to you. By sharing your story you’re showing the world that sexism *does* exist, it *is* faced by women *ever... more »

PressTV Press TV has launched a Facebook petition to save the news channel across Europe after European satellite provider Eutelsat SA stopped the broadcast of several Iranian satellite channels on the order of the European Commission. In a blatant violation of freedom of speech, the company ordered media services company, Arqiva, to take the Iranian satellite channels off one of its Hot Bird frequencies on Monday. The decision follows months of jamming of Iranian channels by European satellite companies. Iranian news channels affected by the decision only aimed to break the We... more »

*WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012* *Part 3—What we have here is a failure to report:* Last evening, Candidate Romney made a truly remarkable claim. Unfortunately, few voters have any way of judging if his claim is accurate! To a large extent, our cluelessness stems from a growing trend in the headlong decline of our culture. In large part, our cluelessness stems from our big news orgs’ refusal to report. What we have here is a failure of Americanism—a refusal to perform the basic tasks expected from alleged journalists.

Hispanic Isn't Spanish For Stupid

Owen Gray at Northern Reflections - 1 hour ago
Tim Harper reminds his readers this morning that, south of the border, the Hispanic population has exploded. The community: has grown 43 per cent over the past decade, and will be 30 per cent of the U.S. population by 2050 (double the size of the African American population). Mitt Romney has said that his preferred way of dealing with that community is "self deportation." And Canadian governments have never recognized its existence: With the most fundamental demographic shift of our lifetimes unfolding before their eyes, successive Canadian governments have blissfully continue... more »

Seth R. Hawkins at Housewife Eclectic - 1 hour ago
In the beginning was Facebook. OK, really it was MySpace, but can we just forget about that ugly episode?

Greece Is Not Poor - It Actually Has Massive Untapped Reserves Of Gold, Oil And Natural Gas

Mark Daniels at GLOBAL POLITICAL AWAKENING - 2 hours ago
Michael Snyder, *Contributor* It turns out that the poster child for the European debt crisis is not actually poor at all.

Fortunately, this recent economic crisis has spurred them to action and it is now being projected that Greece will be the number one gold producer in Europe by 2016. In addition, Gree... more »

Susanne Posel, *Contributor* The UN warns that global food stores like grains are depleting at an exponential rate; and when combined with failing harvests, there will be a food crisis in 2013. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) explains that “we’ve not been producing as much as we are consuming. That is why stocks are being run down.

 Source of poster: http://www.facebook.com/OasisAdvancedWellness 7 Nasty and Crazy Effects of Pesticides in Food Exposure by Lisa Garber Natural Society, 16 October 2012 When asked by a skeptical friend why you buy organic, do you find yourself tongue-tied? Was it obesity? Or thyroid problems? Why should you buy organic? There are numerous reasons to skip the mainstream supermarket food and shop at an organic grocer, but just one of those reasons revolves around the effects of pesticides.

The creation of a wooly mammoth is becoming a realistic proposition and from there to enhancing a living human being or producing an enhanced human being is simply part of the same protocols. Of course the claim that we will get this done in two years appears way over optimistic, but doing it is also appearing to be a certainty. It is also true that introducing enhanced DNA into the cells of a living human being is revolutionary. Correcting errors is the easy part, but enhancing abilities is the real payoff.

Thus halting the progression is extremely important as it will surely limit any disability and ongoing care costs.

I learned a long time ago that elections can be influenced by any number of almost random story lines but that the weight of opinion will tend to dominate. It took an extraordinary effort in 2008 to elect Obama including keeping the candidate in a bubble and blocking access to plenty of unflattering information. Today he must run on his current resume and it is not compelling. It is hard to argue that he is indispensable. The weight of opinion is slightly against Obama and Romney's task has been to reassure and motivate his natural audience and this has so far succeeded... more »

Madagascar's Peopling

We have posted on this in the past but the key take home here is that a ship load or perhaps even an expedition similar to Polynesian expeditions took off from Indonesia and went with the winds until they fetched up on Madagascar. What is noteworthy is just how small a founding group can be. It is thus easy to backtrack for the far greater occupations of continents that also likely were smallish one way trips. The real problem is just how recent that event was. Sea beds have been much lower and many more islands could have acted as stepping stones. I find it difficult to ... more »

And it probably made sense to Dr. Y as well, the orthopedic surgeon who has also never met my mother. Unfortunately for her, the news was completely devastating. She was supposed to be having her surgery next week, and on Sunday we'd joked about how she only had 11 more sleeps. I'm a guil... more »

*“Pointless?”* by Chet Raymo "Theresa drew our attention to the Templeton Foundation's two-page ad the New York Times that gave the responses of a dozen prominent scientists and scholars to the question "Does the universe have a purpose?"

Though the question of whether the five accused men have to actually show up in court every day wouldn't seem all that exciting or controversial, as soon as one of the defense lawyers started to say his client was traumatized by having been tortured at the hands of his U.S. interrogators, the judge shut him up.

McGuinty's Resignation

thwap at thwap's schoolyard - 14 hours ago
Assuming that Dalton McGuinty doesn't have a secret, life-threatening illness, I'm going to assume that Dalton McGuinty's surprise, sudden resignation as the leader of the Ontario Liberals is rooted in frustration and petulance. McGuinty discovered that incompetent, scandal-plagued government is difficult to manage when you only have a minority government. Especially when your whole shtick as the government is to rationalize yourself with tossed-off platitudes that could have been stolen from sappy greeting cards. I once read an interview with Dalton McGuinty in the Hamilton Spect... more »

* "Parts of the One: Ants and Bees, a Metaphor"* by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM "We can learn a lot from watching ants and bees living in community and working for the greater good. When we see ants and bees out in the world, we often see just one, but this belies the reality of their situation. More than any other species, ants and bees function as parts of a whole. They cannot and do not survive as individuals; they survive as members of a group, and the group’s survival is the implicit goal of each individual’s life. There is no concept of life outside the group, so even to us... more »

"Mundus Vult Decipi, Ergo Decipiatur..."

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 15 hours ago
"Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur," a Latin phrase, means "The world wants to be deceived, so let it be deceived." The saying is ascribed to Petronius, a Roman satirist from the first century, CE. "The pontifex maximus Scævola thought it expedient that the people should be deceived in religion; and the learned Varro said plainly, that "there are many truths, which it is useless for the vulgar to know; and many falsities which it is fit the people should not suppose are falsities." Hence comes the adage "Mundus vult decipi, decipiatur ergo."

Syria: Lies the media tells us to support the war agenda
