A 3-Minute Video of the CDC Exposes Everything Wrong with the Vaccine Approval Process

When a pharmaceutical company makes a new vaccine, the committee responsible for approving it for public use is the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The issues with this organization run deep. Many of the committee members have links to the pharmaceutical industry and the vaccine manufacturers. A short video from a meeting earlier this year shows the ACIP voting on a new vaccine, and it exposes everything that is wrong with their methods. The new vaccine is approved with a unanimous vote without adequate safety data in place. Its brand new ingredients mad... more »

Yastreblyansky agrees with *The New Yorker*'s Adam Davidson that we're in the end stages of the Trump presidency. He doesn't think impeachment is coming any time soon, even after what he expects to be an "extremely damning" report from Robert Mueller on obstruction of justice. But he does expect there to be a steady decline in Tump voters' enthusiasm. Meanwhile, the figure of Trump himself gets less and less impressive, as we've seen this week from the ridiculousness-cum-criminality of Scott Pruitt and Ryan Zinke and above all Cohen the feared gangster, with his implosion and defeat... more »

Russia's Typhoon-Class Missile Submarine Is the Biggest on Planet Earth (And Most Destructive?)

*Kyle Mizokami* *Security, * It was a legend on the big screen. *The Cold War arms race was above all a competition, and warhead count was important. Because the Akulas carried only twenty missiles to the twenty-four missiles of the Ohio class, each Soviet missile had to carry more nuclear warheads than the American Trident C-4. A single R-39 packed ten one-hundred-kiloton warheads, each independently targetable so that a single missile could strike ten different targets within reasonably close range of one another. This drove up the size and weight of the missile, but it also ... more »
