Where Was The DCCC When A GOP Tracker Was Manhandling Kara Eastman's Daughter?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 13 hours ago
Early in the cycle, the DCCC identified NE-02, basically the Omama Metro, including all of Douglas County and some rural areas in Sarpy County, as "must win" district. Obama won it in 2008, Romney won it in 2012 and Hillary beat Trump 48.2% to 46.0% in 2016. It's a very swingy district with a miscalculated R+4 PVI (should be R+2).

"Correlation does not imply causation", but when it comes to bedbugs . . .

Peter at Bayou Renaissance Man - 13 hours ago
One of the most frequently heard observations about statistics is that "Correlation does not imply causation" - in other words, that just because two observations are observed simultaneously, it doesn't necessarily mean that one is caused by the other. Nevertheless, sufficiently high degrees of correlation do make one wonder. In that light, Orkin's latest "Top 50 Bed Bug Cities List" made me wonder. For the second year in a row, Baltimore tops Orkin’s Top 50 Bed Bug Cities list, released today. New York fell four spots, while Dallas-Fort Worth joined the top 10. San Diego and Alba... more »

*Michael Peck* *Security, * [image: A Soldier from Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 41st Fires Brigade, pulls security during the CBRN lane at the unit's pre-deployment training at Fort Hood, Texas.] Today's U.S. Army can generate an astonishing amount of firepower and deliver it in a variety of settings from small-war counterinsurgency to big-war mechanized combat. With that in mind, here are five of the best U.S. Army weapons. *Weighing in at 60 tons, the M-1A2 has a 120-millimeter cannon, depleted-uranium armor up to three feet thick and a top speed of more than 40 mil... more »

Pareidolia: We're Secretly Judging Face Likeness

News Staff at Science 2.0 blogs - 15 hours ago
If you have seen a face in the clouds or you have been part of a phenomenon called "pareidolia" - a willingness to recognize a non-face object as a human face. Humans sometimes perceive an inherently meaningless object such as a pattern, landscape or object as another object, one that has meaning. It's why alternative science proponents, the Jeffrey Smith's and Pete Myers of the world, believe in spirit photographs. Some have even argued that pareidolia occurs in relatively low-level visual processing, and a new paper examines the relation between behavior when a face-like objec... more »

These Hotspots Can Last For Millions Of Years

You may have trouble finding a hotspot in that store you are visiting, but there is one place they are persistent: inside neutron stars. A new study shows that instabilities can create intense magnetic hot spots that survive for millions of years, even after the star's overall magnetic field has decayed significantly. When a massive star consumes its nuclear fuel and collapses under its own gravity in a supernova explosion, it can result in a neutron star. These very dense objects have a radius of about 10 kilometers and yet are 1.5 times more massive than the Sun. They have very s... more »

Diversity Of An Ecosystem Is Important, Not Size

Though countries like the United States and Ireland have far more forest than they did a century ago, professional environmentalists insist there needs to be more.

Large ecosystems bring stability, they insist. But that isn't really true. Instead, stability and diversity happen when the ecosystem is complex, not just because it is large.

What the National Counterintelligence and Security Center Really Said About Chinese Economic Espionage

Defense News recently ran a story describing a July 2018 report from the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) on “Foreign Economic Espionage in Cyberspace”. The story presents the NCSC report as warning that the threat posed by Chinese industrial cyber theft to America’s long-term economic power continues to expand, despite the Obama-Xi agreement in 2015 to “curb Chinese economic espionage over the Internet.” But this framing is at least somewhat misleading. It’s worth looking at what the NCSC report actually says, which is that “the Intelligence Community and... more »

The scale is hard to grasp and it is equally hard to grasp just how long this has to have been underway. Earth's known time window for terra forming is around 500,000 years or 50,000 centuries. What all this makes completely clear is that massive populations are shifted between stars in generational ships that take centuries to make their traverses who inevitably need reaction mass for course corrections and the next leg onward. Contact and necessary movement is also maintained through wormholes as well. Thus we have the Gas giants turned into recharging stations. The process... more »

"Is The Interest Rate Death Spiral Finally Starting?"

*"Is The Interest Rate Death Spiral Finally Starting?"* by Dollarcollapse.com "The yield on Italy’s 10-year bond is up by about 100 basis points from its 2018 low. Meanwhile, its government continues to borrow money and roll over its existing debt. But now it has to do so at ever-higher interest rates, which means it has to pay more interest, which means its deficits are rising, forcing it to borrow even more money, and so on until this “interest rate death spiral” becomes fatal. It would already be fatal, if not for the European Central Bank’s willingness to buy Italy’s bonds at e... more »

*From Harper's Weekly:* Illiberal Values by Walter Kirn "Puritanism," Mencken said, is 'the haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy.' But liberal puritanism is slightly different. It fears that the wrong sort of people might be happy, or that their happiness might be of the wrong kind." "I see evidence that certain liberal principles, the ones that impressed me in the Seventies, have eroded. Back then, for example, the CIA was understood to be a nest of liars and psychopaths who toppled democratically chosen leaders, lied to the public to start wars, and ran sick exper... more »
