New Chrissie Hynde Memoir Takes Some Swipes at Good Ol' USA

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 43 minutes ago
-by Denise Sullivan I think of Chrissie Hynde's stunning "My City Was Gone" just about everyday as I stalk the streets of San Francisco, searching for meaning and life in a place I used to and sometimes still do call home. The song's themes of urban destruction and environmental decline in the name of so-called progress are threaded throughout Hynde's new memoir, *Reckless, My Life as A Pretender*, among other unexpected twists to her rock star's back pages, but then Hynde was never one to do the expected. The fact she let Rush Limbaugh get away with using the opening notes of "My... more »

Russian TV Accidentally Discloses A Secret Russian Navy Nuclear-Armed Drone Program

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 2 hours ago
*Daid Axe, Daily Beast*: *Putin TV: Russia’s Got a Dirty Bomb* A Kremlin-owned TV network ‘accidentally’ airs footage of specs for Russia’s frightening new underwater nuclear weapon. Is it just a ruse to talk up Moscow’s military might? A stray camera at a meeting of top Russian military leaders has allegedly captured a glimpse of the Kremlin’s possible plan for a bewildering and frightening new weapon—a radiation-scattering “dirty bomb.” One delivered by a drone submarine, which itself rides piggyback on another submarine. The problem is: We have no way of knowing for sure if thi... more »

USA: 180 Nukes In Europe To Go “Live” In Potential Russia Face-off

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 4 hours ago
The Pentagon have begun activating 180 of their dormant B61 nukes stationed in Europe, in readiness for a potential nuclear war with Russia. The $8 billion stockpile of B61-12 bombs, often said to be the most expensive type of nuclear bomb ever created, are being made “more useable” with an added new tail kid and adjustable yield so they can be precision-guided by the US army. Sputniknews.com reports: Knowing that it has access to a “usable” nuclear weapon could alter the way the Pentagon thinks about nuclear war.

Climate Change Dogma Debunked As Global Cooling Kicks In

Sean Adl-Tabatabai at Your News Wire - 4 hours ago
Our Sun is due to go into “hibernation” in the year 2030 as it begins its Maunder Minimum (solar minimum) for around 15 years. This is likely to plunge the earth into a mini ice-age. The mainstream scientific consensus since the early 1990’s has been that the Earth is experiencing a warming up (global warming), due to natural causes and the burning of fossil fuels. But as scientists have recently pointed out, the Earth seems to have been begun cooling down in recent years, well ahead of the scheduled solar minimum, and as global cooling sets in for the foreseeable future could it be... more »

In the early 1900’s a doctor named Duncan MacDougall set up an experiment to see whether the human soul could be weighed. He set-up a unique and macabre experiment in which he weighed the souls of terminally ill patients at the very moment of their deaths. He did this by fitting their beds with a sensitive set of beam scales, and then asked the patients to lie on the bed during their final moments of life. He recorded the exact time of each death, the exact amount of time the patient spent on the bed, as well as any changes in weight that occurred around the moment of death. He conc... more »

This video is disgusting. A worker for ISS, a Danish multinational firm according to From the Night Market, stalks and then insults a foreigner on the metro. This kind of thing is quite uncommon. I do not think this is a mere episode of racist abuse. No, I think the person has chosen the crowded metro on purpose, hoping to bait the foreigner into attacking him in front of witnesses so he can sue him for assault.

*British Catholic schools to ban Islam from High School religious studies* The Roman Catholic Church is at the centre of a row after ordering its schools to teach Judaism alongside Christianity in GCSE religious studies – ruling out Islam or other faiths. The edict was described as ‘very disappointing’ by senior Muslim leaders. Sir Iqbal Sacranie, former secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said the decision undermined Pope Francis’s message of greater tolerance between the faiths, and urged Catholic leader Cardinal Vincent Nichols to think again.

*The Cozy Relationship Between Big Business and Climate Change Activists* Polls bear it out: When it comes to climate change, the world isn’t much interested in taking action. Most folks, it seems, are reluctant to embrace expensive, lifestyle-changing, ineffective “solutions” to a non-evident problem. But some big companies are gung-ho about “fighting” climate change. Well, at least they’ve jumped on the Obama administration’s climate-treaty bandwagon, backing an as yet unwritten pact to be hammered out next month in Paris.

Chu Campaign Ad: Messages within Messages

Michael Turton at The View from Taiwan - 21 hours ago
Solidarity send around this campaign ad from the Chu campaign. Go to his blog and read his remarks, insightful as usual. What struck me about the ad was not only its whiteness, but also its lack of young people, females, and non-Han people. This is an elite, exclusive, male Taiwan Chu is presenting. Another interesting thing I noticed was the lack of people. In Taiwan the metaphor for on-stage social interaction is the night market (marketing researcher Clyde Warden has some interesting work on this), just as in America it is The Neighborhood.
