*"Feeling Depleted:* *Cause, Effect, and Transformation"* by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM "Often we go through life rundown, but the body's natural state is one of energy, clarity, and balance There are times in our lives when it seems our bodies are running on empty. We are not sick, nor are we necessarily pushing ourselves to the limit - rather, the energy we typical enjoy has mysteriously dissipated, leaving only fatigue. Many people grow accustomed to feeling this way because they do not know that it is possible to exist in any other state. The body's natural state, however, is o... more »

Will Trump Be Able To Save McConnell From Kentucky Voters In 2 Years?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 59 minutes ago
Pelosi is one of the least liked politicians in America-- two caveats though: 1- her own constituents love her and showed it at the polls 2 weeks ago when 172,399 voters turned out-- more than any other district in California-- and gave her an overwhelming win against 6 challengers and 2- she's far more popular than Mitch McConnell, the most disliked elected official in America. McConnell's seat isn't up this November. It's up in 2020-- when Señor Trumpanzee is on the top of the ticket. If Pete Session in a gerrymandered Dallas district can loose his seat, as looks likely-- McConn... more »

Sweden Makes Some Tough Submarine (1 Sunk a U.S. Aircraft Carrier)

Sebastien Roblin at The National Interest - 1 hour ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, Europe* Cheap, stealthy and deadly. For decades, submarines came in two discrete flavors: traditional diesel-electric submarines that need to surface every day or two to recharge their noisy, air-breathing diesel engines, and nuclear-powered submarines that could quietly hum along under the sea at relatively high speeds for months at a time thanks to their nuclear reactors. The downside to the nuclear-powered variety, of course, is that they cost many times the price of a comparable diesel submarines and require nuclear propulsion technology, which ... more »

The Harrier: The Fighter Jet the Marines Want in a War

Edward Chang at The National Interest - 1 hour ago
*Edward Chang* *Security, North America* And just can't seem to get rid of. Since the intervention by the United States and coalition partners began in 2014, the Middle East's skies have become crowded with the very best in modern air power. The air is full of flashy fourth-generation fighters (like the Air Force's F-15s and F-16s and the Navy's F/A-18E/Fs), and newer fifth-generation fighters (like the F-22).

The Worst Part of the Civil War? Prison Camps.

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 1 hour ago
*Warfare History Network* *Security, Americas* A forgotten part of our nation's most tragic tale. The June 19, 1861, editorial in the *Charleston Mercury* newspaper warned: “War is bloody reality, not butterfly sporting. The sooner men understand this the better.” During the four-year course of the Civil War, the entire country—North and South—would come to the same grim realization. There were seemingly endless lists of thousands of soldiers killed or wounded in battle or dead of disease. Thousands more, both Union and Confederate, languished in prisoner of war camps, enduring h... more »

Rugged, accurate, reliable and with a large magazine capacity, Glock’s pistols became wildly successful. As the company redirected the interests of commercial shooters it also embraced larger-bore guns with loyal followings, producing such firearms as the subcompact 10mm Glock 29 and .45 ACP Glock 30.
