Sandra Fluke Comes To Town... With The EMILY's List Smear Machine

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 13 minutes ago
*-by Dorothy Reik* President, Progressive Democrats of the Santa Monica Mountains The bizarrely Californian Dem v Dem California state Senatorial contest between the DCCC’s sweetheart, 33 year old married “co-ed” Sandra Fluke and grassroots activist and native son Ben Allen was going along it’s predictable course with sneak attacks and hushed innuendos, when Fluke decided to go really dirty. While her surrogates had been circulating attacks on Ben and his supporters by e-mail and button-holing confrontations at various events, Fluke’s campaign decided to take a couple of pages fro... more »

A ‘Minarchist’ Environmentalism

Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 23 minutes ago
*Guest post by **Nick Sorrentino** from the blog **Against Crony Capitalism* [image: Socialist_Wildlife] This essay has little (directly) to do with crony capitalism, however I wanted to post it here for our readerss consideration. People who read *Against Crony Capitalism* regularly know that we care about the environment. We love the ocean, and hiking, and clear skies on a moonless night. We are saddened by the clear cutting of rain forest, (usually due to a wilful lack of property rights) and by plastic floating in our seas; we care about “sustainability” generally. However we d... more »

*"On Miracles"* by Chet Raymo "Saint Augustine was a complex fellow, both loving the world and hating it, and he bequeathed something of that love/hate to Roman Catholicism in particular and to Christianity in general. I have seldom had good words for him in these posts, preferring instead the more enthusiastic embrace of nature that characterized his Celtic nemesis Pelagius.

*"Emerging Courageous: Walking through Your Fear"* by The DailyOm "Frequently, in walking through our fear, we discover that the strength of our fright was out of sync with reality. The situations, activities, and individuals that frighten us remain static. Their relative intensity does not change. Fear, on the other hand, self-magnifies. It is when you are afraid and envisioning all that might go wrong that the energy underlying your fear grows. A tiny flicker of anxiety can easily develop into a terror that manifests itself physically and eventually paralyzes you into inaction. T... more »

The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 1 hour ago
For people of a certain age and background Bob Dylan's early song "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll" (1963) is life altering. It tells of a wealthy man who kills a servant and, through his power and wealth, escapes justice. The song tells a true story - or that's what I believed until quiet recently. The song shaped my thinking about power inequality and the law for as long as I can remember. The lyrics are: "William Zanzinger killed poor Hattie Carroll With a cane that he twirled around his diamond ring finger At a Baltimore hotel society gath'rin' And the cops were called in... more »

I've long held that stephen harper is a psychopath. The only thing he really cares about is himself. (he doesn't know why.) I also happen to think he's a very shallow and superficial man.

Tonight's BBC Radio 4 Front Row interview with Yusuf Islam, formerly Cat Stevens, was the sort of gushy interview that one would expect from the BBC when faced with an anti Imperialist Muslim 'artist'.

*October 15, 2014 *(Ulson Gunnar - NEO) - It would seem only natural that the presumed arbiters of the world would see their greetings and congratulations as the natural pinnacle of success for any they deem a global hero. And such is the case of now Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai who has been given an audience with US President Barack Obama (also a Nobel Peace Prize recipient) to be congratulated on for having "inspired people around the world with her determined efforts for girls' right to education." Malala Yousafzai was thrust into headlines when she was attacked... more »

Education Post’s Selective Concern with “Belittling”

deutsch29 at @ THE CHALK FACE - 23 hours ago
There’s a new blog in town, and it is fortified by millions in corporate-reformer cash in order to spread the message that “the reforms are working.” It’s called Education Post. I first wrote about it in this September 3, 2014, post. EdPost is keen on US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. (More discussion on that point in in this September […]

How Close Is 1984 Today?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 23 hours ago
When I think back to high school and recall the books I read that have had the most impact on my thinking since then, certainly the dystopian novels *1984* (1949) by George Orwell and *Brave New World* (1932) by Aldous Huxley ranked high among them. Our world must never turn into the world’s created by Huxley and Orwell. This afternoon we looked at a reason to cast a vote to reelect Colorado Senator Mark Udall based on his role in preventing *1984* encroachment by the CIA and the rest of the U.S. Military-Industrial-Intellegence Complex on our society and our democracy.

Is Israel About To Use It's Natural Gas Reserves To Shape Mideast Relations?

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 1 day ago
*Israel Sees Gas as Key to Transforming Mideast Relations -- Bloomberg* After this summer’s war in Gaza battered Israel’s international reputation, the country’s leaders say they have a new foreign policy tool to build relations with its neighbors: natural gas. By the the end of the year, Israel may have binding agreements to sell billions of dollars of gas to Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority. Preliminary talks are taking place with customers in Turkey, even though President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is among Israel’s fiercest critics. Gas may even help improve relationships... more »

“This sharp cosmic portrait features NGC 891. The spiral galaxy spans about 100 thousand light-years and is seen almost exactly edge-on from our perspective. In fact, about 30 million light-years distant in the constellation Andromeda, NGC 891 looks a lot like our Milky Way. At first glance, it has a flat, thin, galactic disk and a central bulge cut along the middle by regions of dark obscuring dust. *Click image for larger size.* The combined image data also reveal the galaxy's young blue star clusters and telltale pinkish star forming regions. And remarkably apparent in NGC 891's e... more »

Chet Raymo, “All Men Have The Stars”

*“All Men Have The Stars”* by Chet Raymo "At the end of his big-bang book "The First Three Minutes", physicist Steven Weinberg famously wrote: "The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless." His point is this: We have discovered in this century that the human species is just one of billions of species of life on a typical planet near a star that is just one of a trillion stars in a galaxy among hundreds of billions of galaxies. It is no longer possible, he implies, to think that the universe was made for us or that our existence is in any way importa... more »

Crude Oil Prices Are Collapsing

*Oil Prices Plunge As Production Rises, Fueling Concern In OPEC -- Washington Post* The rollercoaster ride of oil prices is speeding downward, carrying with it bickering members of OPEC, anxious U.S. shale oil producers and a Russia that relies heavily on petroleum revenues. With a weak global economy, the customary swing producer of oil — Saudi Arabia — has cut prices instead of cutting production, setting off a scramble on world markets. Crude oil prices have tumbled more than 23 percent since June, including a more than 4 percent drop Tuesday. Prices fell below four-year lows ... more »

Lucid Dreaming: "Silent Lucidity"

"Silent Lucidity" by Jason Bellows "There was a time that I could fly. I jutted my right fist into the air, and launched into the sky. My stomach dropped with the sensation of breaking gravity’s bond, and the summer air cooled as I reached higher. When the roads were so far below as to be an indistinct ashen blur, I halted and curled my legs under me as I was pelted by icy crystals of clouds, and surveyed all below. There was a moment of idle indecision, but in the end it mattered not at all. I picked a direction and dove. The experience was one of my many brushes with Lucid Dreami... more »

"What Is Hope?"

noreply@blogger.com (CoyotePrime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 1 day ago
*"What Is Hope?"* by Ruben Alves "What is hope? It is the pre-sentiment that imagination is more real and reality is less real than it looks. It is the hunch that the overwhelming brutality of facts that oppress and repress us is not the last word. It is the suspicion that reality is more complex than the realists want us to believe. That the frontiers of the possible are not determined by the limits of the actual; and in a miraculous and unexplained way, life is opening creative events which will light the way to freedom and resurrection. But the two — suffering and hope — must l... more »

It’s been a long time between posts. Lots of good reasons. We’ve had two weddings in October, two daughters marrying two great guys. They’ve been fun and inspiring, and a chance to re-connect with people who matter. I’ve been doing interesting work for The Tyee, BC Business and Douglas Magazine. We - Jody Paterson and I - have been looking ahead to new Cuso International placements in Nicaragua. And there has been ‘the book.’ The real title is Dead Ends: BC Crime Stories, but for a long time, as I laboured away, it was just ‘the book.’ It’s my first, published by the team at the Un... more »

Probability Theory: “Chances Are”

“Chances Are” by Steven Strogatz "Have you ever had that anxiety dream where you suddenly realize you have to take the final exam in some course you’ve never attended? For professors, it works the other way around — you dream you’re giving a lecture for a class you know nothing about. That’s what it’s like for me whenever I teach probability theory. It was never part of my own education, so having to lecture about it now is scary and fun, in an amusement park, thrill-house sort of way. Perhaps the most pulse-quickening topic of all is “conditional probability” — the probability th... more »
