What the Confederate flag stands for

For the most tragic of reasons, but it’s good that apologists for the antediluvian US Confederacy and the war it started are being publicly called out. And for those who aren’t sure what they stood for, as *The Atlantic *says, “The meaning of the Confederate flag is best discerned in the words of those who bore it.” It was in South Carolina that the Civil War began, when the Confederacy fired on Fort Sumter.

Lee Hooper et al., 2015 - the latest Cochrane meta-analysis of saturated fat reduction RCTs

George Henderson at The High-fat Hep C Diet - 6 hours ago
A new Cochrane meta-analysis of saturated fat reduction trials by Lee Hooper et al. has barely made a splash in the blogosphere, and my mention of it on Twitter barely merited a retweet. This is a pity, because this is a question that is not really resolved. A matter of particular interest to me about RCT meta-analysis is whether it agrees with prospective cohort meta-analysis. Another feature of Hooper's work that's instructive, which I intend to discuss, is her ongoing disagreement with Dariush Mozzafarian's analysis of fatty acid substitution. *Reduction in saturated fat intak... more »

June 23: Quality of Irving press in decline

Graeme Decarie at The Moncton Times@Transcript - Good and Bad - 12 hours ago
I wouldn't have thought it possible. But foreign news of any significance has just about disappeared in the Times and Transcript. As for the commentary page, it commonly has one column a day that comes from a special interest group or a propaganda house - and it almost certainly comes free. The editorial, never a shining star, is routinely just brainless. Then there's the firing of all photographers, along with the old double-tasking of reporters by making them commentators - and all this comes at a time when the first Irving ever to get a degree in journalism has taken the fasest r... more »

China may be trying to hide its submarines in the South China Sea

Ko Savonije at Naval Open Source INTelligence - 22 hours ago
[image: Type 094 (Jin) class SSBN]For months, China’s visible construction of artificial islands and military facilities in the South China Sea has alarmed U.S. officials and many of China’s neighbors. What is happening under the water is also worrisome, say several defense and security analysts. China has a growing fleet of nuclear submarines armed with ballistic missiles. The expansion of its claim on the South China Sea may be intended to create a deep-water sanctuary — known in military parlance as a “bastion” — where its submarine fleet could avoid detection.

They are as follows: 1 The operating size of the community needs to be 150 +- 20 in order to be optimal and socially stable. We know this from sociology and anthropology.

The media driven guilt industry has worn seriously thin. And manipulating the history is not going to improve on it either. The historical reality is always the same. Something had to be done and something was. After that it is always a roll of the dice regarding how happy the result will be. Recall that before 1960, the majority of the developed world's population lacked education beyond some level of secondary schooling. A mere handful did somewhat better. This meant that a whole range of social mores were not tackled critically or compassionately and in fact custom domi... more »
