Advanced Composting for Dairy Farmers by Susan Harris

I stopped by the USDA research farm a couple of miles from my house to get a tour of their compost research, led by my former neighbor Walter Mulbry.  But any notion that the target audience here is gardeners or even homeowners is way off – this is about composting manure from dairy farms, like the 100-cow farm here.  Walter told me that figuring out what’s best on this small operation would work

Myth Busting: Examining the 'Evidence' That Obama Won Due to 'Widespread Voter Fraud'
Why isn't the FBI or the Justice Department investigating the "widespread voter fraud" that a number of Rightwingers are claiming enabled Barack Obama to win the 2012 election? The simplest answer is that there is nothing to investigate --- at least no evidence to suggests as much at this time. Lacking such evidence, such fishing expeditions are a waste of taxpayer money, particularly when the evidence of "fraud" forwarded to date by those Republicans are easily dispatched with little more than a Google search and a few clicks of the mouse. All existing evidence suggests that President Obama s

Iran, Immunity and Diagrams
By now, readers will have seen this strange little diagram foisted upon the reading public by AP’s George Jahn. The significant issues are whether the document is genuine, a question I will return to at the end of this post, and if it is, what it means. As I have written elsewhere, I believe there is very strong evidence that Iran had a covert nuclear weapons program through 2003. I believe that
Verification, Risk, and Nuclear Testing
Concerns over verification and compliance are a refuge for skeptics of arms control. These concerns can be substantive as well as overdramatized. No treaty is risk-free, and no monitoring regime is foolproof. Will a powerful cheater be called out, even if discovered? And what then? No treaty seeking to tame the Bomb offers the prospect of automatic penalties. Arms-control advocates have countered
