Here, Paul Craig Roberts asks the question of The Two Superpowers: Who Really Controls the Two Countries? by studying what the Washington Post and the New York Times say about that. And They repeat the disproven lies about Russia as if blatant, obvious lies are hard facts. Yet the WaPo reads: “THE REASONS for the tension between the United States and Russia are well-established. Russia seized Crimea from Ukraine, instigated a war in eastern Ukraine, intervened to save the dictatorship of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, interfered in the U.S. presidential election campaign to harm Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump, poisoned a former intelligence officer on British soil and continues to meddle in the elections of other democracies.” But if you can get behind the truth, Russia didn't "seize" Crimea because it belonged to Russia for centurys and they only took it back after a plebiscite wherein about 85 or 90 voted to again be under Russian rule, largely because the Ukraine instigated a war armed by the U.S. who payed neo-Naxis to kill native Russians.

Ichthyosis: Progress Addressing This Severe Skin Disease Affecting Dogs And Humans

News Staff at Science 2.0 blogs - 4 hours ago
Skin, with its densely packed layers of cells and lipids, keeps foreign substances from leaking in and water from leaking out. It's a reverse raincoat for our organs. In ichthyosis and other skin diseases, this barrier breaks down, and problems arise. Unlike more commonly known skin diseases, in ichthyosis thick layers of scales can build up because the lipid-synthesis process in the skin goes awry. Besides causing discomfort and a scaly appearance, the condition can make the skin prone to secondary infections. read more

*Reuters*: *Haitian civil unrest enters third day despite fuel hike reversal* PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - Mostly young protesters in Haiti blocked streets on Sunday while many damaged or looted stores remained closed for a third day following anger over steep fuel price increases in the Caribbean nation. Protesters used felled trees to block roadways, as well as piles of tires set on fire, many of which continued to smolder on Sunday, sending thick clouds of black smoke high into the air. In some cases, police responded with tear gas to disperse crowds. The remains of charred c... more »

*"Dumbing Ourselves Down: Wanting To Join"* by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM "When we dumb ourselves down, we sell ourselves short and lose an opportunity to shed light where it is needed. The ability to go into any social situation and sense the level of consciousness in that situation is a gift. It enables us to move considerately in a world that holds people of all levels of awareness. However, there is a difference between shifting our energy to accommodate people and dumbing ourselves down to a regrettable degree. Sometimes, when we get into a particular social situation, we may... more »

Progressive Primary Winners Abandoned By The DCCC

Normally, I don't buy into "lesser-of-two-evils" politics. If Democrats nominate a corrupt reactionary Blue Dog, I'm at least as incensed as I am over a Republican. That's not going to change either. *And*, I'm still saying that "normally" no longer applies, not with Trump and his Congress-ful of enablers and rubber stamps. I'm telling friends and relatives-- my sister lives in Jeff Van Drew's district-- to just hold their noses and vote for anyone with a "D" next to their name. As Digby has been saying since Trump moved into the White House, we're in existential territory here. B... more »

"A Duty to Know"

noreply@blogger.com (Coyote Prime) at Running 'Cause I Can't Fly - 9 hours ago
*"A Duty to Know" * By Cognitive Dissonance "Conversations Mrs. Cog and I have often revolve around awareness and knowing verses ignorance and belief. These discussions usually boil down to whether or not there is a personal responsibility to *know*. Or, at a minimum, a responsibility to question what we believe/disbelieve or are told to believe/disbelieve. The dialogue often stalls when we confront a fundamental question; should we be held responsible to know what we do not know. If it never occurs to us to ask, if someone never informs us of what we don’t know, why would we even... more »

Jesse Marcel's Journal

Jesse Marcel, Sr. As you all know, one of the problems with the Roswell case is that we have been unable to find any letters, diaries, journals, or notes that were written in 1947 that would tell us about the crash. There have been hints about this, but to this point, none of those hints produced anything that is conclusive. Inez Wilcox, wife of the Roswell sheriff, had written a story about her “four years in the county jail,” talking about what it was like to be the wife of the sheriff. Although the original article contained nothing about the crash, she added a page later that ta... more »

Does President Trump actually run the Trump administration? It’s hard not to wonder given the growing gap between the president’s strong words on an issue he seems to care about — the trophy hunting of elephants — and the actual policies implemented by officials supposedly working for him. On June 19, Atlanta will play host to the second meeting of the administration’s so-called International Wildlife Conservation Council. This federal council was created by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke — himself a trophy hunter — specifically to advise on the “removal of barriers” to importing tr... more »
