The Afghan City Of Kunduz Is Under Taliban Attack

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 23 minutes ago
*Reuters:* *Taliban fighters enter northern Afghan city of Kunduz* Taliban fighters mounted a coordinated assault on the northern city of Kunduz overnight, attacking from four directions and entering the city itself, a senior city police official said. Sheer Ali Kamal, commander of the 808 Tandar police zone in Kunduz said the attack began at around midnight (1930 GMT Sunday) and fighting was still going on in and around the city. "We are putting all our efforts together to push them back," he said. Kunduz, which fell briefly to the Taliban a year ago, has seen repeated bouts of h... more »

"A Haunting, Inescapable Riddle...:

*I.* "At my father's club, sitting before the fire, we had spoken of 'moments made eternity', meaning what are called timeless moments, moments precisely without the pressure of time -moments that might be called, indeed, timeful moments. And we had clearly understood that the pressure of time was our nearly inescapable awareness of an approaching terminus- the bell about to ring, the holiday about to end, the going down from Oxford foreseen... Life itself is pressured by death, the final terminus. Socrates refused to delay his own death for a few more hours: perhaps he knew that t... more »

*"Do You Remember?"* "Do you remember still the falling stars that like swift horses through the heavens raced and suddenly leaped across the hurdles of our wishes - do you recall? And we did make so many! For there were countless numbers of stars: each time we looked above we were astounded by the swiftness of their daring play, while in our hearts we felt safe and secure watching these brilliant bodies disintegrate, knowing somehow we had survived their fall." - Rainer Maria Rilke

Examining Cthulhu Mythos Tales Through a Pulp Lens

Daniel Stack at 19th Level - 2 hours ago
As I embark on a Pulp Cthulhu game, albeit one set in the late Victorian era, I've been thinking about what really differs between a pulp-oriented game vs. a purist one. The answer is surprisingly flexible. There is a style of play that embraces the belief that all the characters are, quite simply, doomed. They are in a race between dying, going insane, or living long enough to see the end of the world. And Lovecraft certainly wrote a number of stories in that way - "Dagon" comes to mind quite readily. On the other hand, in many ways "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" has a strong touch... more »

"Courage" by George Washington "It all comes down to courage... If you have courage, then you're willing to face that really stinky mess in the garage and clean it up. You have faith you can clean it up, because you've cleaned up other really stinky messes, or seen other people do it. In other words, you have faith because you have experience of succeeding in the past. Fat and Happy: We Americans have led a very pampered life for the past couple of decades. Sure, there has been inequality and exploitation, and some have had it a lot worse than others. But, other than stopping extre... more »

Schumer And The DC Dems Forced Strickland Down Ohio Democrats' Throats And Have Now Abandoned The State Entirely

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
Ohio has been the ultimate swing state. The state went narrowly for Bill Clinton in 1992 and 1996, narrowly for George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004 and narrowly for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. Statewide, Democrats usually have a good shot to win-- unless they recruit, as they did this cycle, incompetent and unelectable candidates (see sad-sack establishment loser Ted Strickland). The biggest problem the state's Democratic establishment has-- aside from it's own miserable leadership-- is the endemic Republican gerrymandering that has made both houses of the state legislature and the... more »

The Fault In Our Political Deathstars

Karen Garcia at Sardonicky - 1 day ago
Had enough of the pornographic soap opera masquerading as the presidential election yet? Replace the fat-shamed Miss Universe saga with the real Universe. Instead of wallowing in Donald Trump's mean-spirited stupidity, soar to the tragic glorious heights of two star-crossed lovers. Ditch the soap opera and revel in some space opera. Maybe you missed this with all the dredging-up of the sex scandals of some pretty loathsome characters: A spacecraft named Rosetta finally consummated her long-distance relationship with her comet paramour. As so eloquently described by the *New Yor... more »

The FBI are seeking the help of hacktivist group Anonymous to help them track down those responsible for compromising the Centcom Twitter account.

BWorld 81, No FIT for geothermal and other renewables, please

Nonoy Oplas at Government and Taxes - 1 day ago
* This is my article in BusinessWorld last September 01, 2016 Expensive electricity via government price guarantee for 20 years is wrong. Business is about risks and returns, capitalism is about corporate expansion and bankruptcy, so there is no such thing as guaranteed price nor assured profit for many years in a competitive economy. Only politics and cronyism will try to negate the nature of competition and business reward and punishment. Last Aug. 17, 2016, it was reported here in BusinessWorld that Geothermal technologies sought to be included in FiT program. “The National Geo... more »

BWorld 81, Property rights are human rights

Nonoy Oplas at Government and Taxes - 1 day ago
* This is my article in BusinessWorld last August 25, 2016. Private property and its protection is among the cornerstones of a free society. It bestows upon the individuals, households and enterprises exclusive rights what to do with their private property like a car or a piece of land -- use it, sell it, rent it out, or donate it. When private property rights are unprotected, society can quickly degenerate into chaos and disorder. Gangs and bullies can confiscate other people’s houses, cars, or shops, and the enterprising people will flee and escape such society and only the lazy,... more »

Fukushima Daiichi October 2, 2016 (TEPCO Time Stamp) and Radiation Levels

Majia's Blog at Majia's Blog - 1 day ago
According to Netc. data, radiation readings in the US and Japan over the last few days have been lower than they were a week ago (see discussion here), which is good but lends support to one commentator's argument that removing the panels from unit 1 brought radiation levels up in the jet stream. I did match up the elevated radiation levels in the US using Netc.com's system with the location of the jet stream on 2 days when levels were high and found a good match between the most elevated levels and the path of the jet stream through the US. Of course, we don't know for certain tha... more »

*SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2016The journalists can't help it:* When it comes to promoting "moral equivalence," the journalists just can't help it.

We refer to David Weigel's lengthy piece about the opening of the new season of the famously tedious TV program, Saturday Night Live. Weigel's lengthy piece dominates the front page of the paper's Style section, the only section anybody ever actually reads. It sits beneath a large double headline.
