*by Noah* C'mon folks Relax!! Leave Donnie Head Case alone. Look at the great job he did with Puerto Rico! I see a future where he's tossing boxes of tissues to crowds of stricken Americans. OK. Actually, no, he won't be doing any such thing. He wouldn't want to be so close to the virus's victims. Besides, Trump can't control his own behavior. How is he ever going to control an epidemic.

Scientists Demonstrate Success of a Possible ‘EpiPen’ to Prevent Paralysis From Spinal Cord Injuries

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
This is a smart diversion of the immune system reaction that slows the initial intense phase that also damages too much. It certainly presages a really useful protocol to apply to all spinal and nervous system injuries as well. In fact it needs to be part of all surgical interventions as well to clean up the raw damage itself and allow possible nerve repair. Far too many surgical intervention do cause serious and irreversible nerve damage. . . *Scientists Demonstrate Success of a Possible ‘EpiPen’ to Prevent Paralysis From Spinal Cord Injuries* *By* *Good News Network* *... more »

Covid19 Real Beast Causing Dangerous Pandemic with Chris Martenson

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
This gives us a decent picture of the nature of the disease. I would feel more comfortable if i saw folks going back to work in Wuhan. That would indicate folks had gotten over the disease in good order and were now immune to further exposure. So far empirical reassurance is scant. We do read that 10,000 have actually been discharged which may mean something. The Chinese seem to be at least slowing the pace while they ramp up their response. Right now we can be sure that everyone globally is scrambling to develop supplies. Remember that fever is your friend as it suppres... more »

Bitcoin Is Premium Collateral And Perhaps The Salvation of Hedge Funds

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
Collateral is a huge problem and a price decline will shake out decades of dodgy loan architecture. So yes a bicoin solution is attractive. Yet this is all long term as the actual user market deepens. It will serve the same way in which we use land and which is now mature almost everywhere. Bitcoin is a measure of global demand and is thus quite stable in terms of price appreciation. We still see volatility, but expect that to continue to diminish. All good . *Bitcoin Is Premium Collateral And Perhaps The Salvation of Hedge Funds* *Written by Paul Rosenberg Date: 02-2... more »

1 Million Casualties: Why World War I's Battle of the Somme Was a Nightmare

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, Europe* So many lives lost. *Key point: *Machine guns and frontal charges were a horrific and stupid combination. The fighting was intense and many were killed with little gained. In February 1916, Allied military leaders met at Chantilly, in the Picardy region of France to discuss grand strategy as World War I entered its second full year. British and French commanders agreed to undertake a joint offensive against the Germans in the West, and the area of the Somme River in northern France was chosen. Meanwhile, the German high command unleas... more »

The Air Force's Block IV F-35 Stealth Fighter Is Unlike Anything You've Ever Seen

Kris Osborn at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Kris Osborn* *Security, Asia* The F-35 is evolving. *Key point:* The current consensus among senior Pentagon weapons developers holds that, at the moment, the F-35 is the most capable 5th generation plane in the world. The Air Force has begun early testing, software development and weapons integration for its upcoming Block 4 variant of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, an emerging model intended to give the multi-role fighter a new dimension of attack mission possibilities, service leaders said. The new version, to emerge in the early 2020s, will add new long-range precision-tr... more »

How World War II Gave Birth to the Modern-Day Sniper

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, World* [image: https://www.reutersconnect.com/all?id=tag%3Areuters.com%2C2016%3Anewsml_D1BEUKDBYNAA&share=true] A big leap forward. *Key point:* Snipers were used in WWI and then really came of age in WWII. They served in many theaters in many different countries' militaries. The art of sniping developed from the sharpshooting practiced during earlier conflicts. During the 19th century, the steadily improving technology of the rifle led to the use of sharpshooters during the American Civil War and the Boer War. However, it was during World War... more »

Russia's MiG-29 Has A New Mission: Aerial Armor Destroyer

Mark Episkopos at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Mark Episkopos* *Security, * The MiG-29 is too outdated for its original role. *Key point: *For a major military power like the Soviet Union and its Russian successor, there is always going to be a glut of aircraft roles to fill at various intensity levels and operational uses. As with many of Russia’s most prolific aircraft, the MiG-29 has spawned numerous variants four decades of service. Originally intended as an superiority fighter, and particularly as the Soviet answer to the F-16, the MiG-29 has been gradually recast as a multi-role aircraft with an increasingly robust ai... more »

Iran's New Guided-Rocket Kit Is Really Bad News For Israel

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, * Will it end up in more nations'... or militants', hands? *Key point:* Iran has often made suspect claims about developing new weapons, so these reports should be taken skeptically. Iran has unveiled a kit that appears to convert unguided surface-to-surface rockets into guided weapons. The Labeik kit “looked similar to the guidance units used with the Fateh-110 family of solid-propellent missiles, although its four triangular control surfaces were inverted,” according to Jane’s Defense Weekly, which based its analysis on Iranian television footage of a... more »

Nazi Germany's Forgotten Victims: Homosexuals and Jehova's Witnesses

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, Europe* [image: German Holocaust Memorial] On May 8, 1985, the 40th anniversary of the end of the war, homosexuals murdered by the Nazis received their first public acknowledgment in a speech by West German President Richard von Weizacker, and in 1994 after the reunification of East and West Germany, Paragraph 175 was abolished altogether. At 8 PM on the evening of Friday, July 13, 1934, German Reich Chancellor Adolf Hitler stepped to the speaker’s lectern of the Reichstag in Berlin’s Kroll Opera House to explain his murderous conduct during th... more »

*Jarrett Stepman* *Politics, Americas* [image: House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney speaks at a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., May 8, 2019. REUTERS/Aaron P. Bernstein] 'It is up to us to defend the blessings of freedom,' she said. Socialism works in opposition to and destroys free societies. That was the message Thursday as conservatives gathered near Washington for the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., said America faces a wide array of threats with one commonality: They oppose American freedom. “We ... more »

How Leap Year Was Born

Jonti Horner at The National Interest - 21 hours ago

Well, if we didn’t, the seasons would gradually move around the calendar. Rather than midsummer in the southern hemisphere falling around December 21, it would arrive in January, then February, and so on. After a few centuries, the Australian summer would end up be in July! But what exactly is a year? The simplest answer is the amount of time it takes for Earth to orbit the Sun.

*Hunter DeRensis* *Politics, * Stern, who championed dirty humor during his early years (and supported the former secretary in 2016), had Clinton on his show in December. The former presidential contender was enamored by the man whose content she had avoided for so long. They spoke for over two hours, discussing a range of topics, personal to professional.

Could Coronavirus Cost Donald Trump the 2020 Election?

Hunter DeRensis at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Hunter DeRensis* *Politics, * For two years commentators and analysts have rattled off that President Donald Trump has a reliable chance at reelection “as long as the economy stays on track.” Will the spread of the coronavirus alter that? It has been a rule of thumb in American politics that the single most important issue people vote on is the state of the economy. Why is the incumbent president popular or unpopular? “It’s the economy, stupid,” is the casual response. For two years commentators and analysts have rattled off that President Donald Trump has a reliable chance at r... more »

After Trump: Who Will Lead the GOP in the 2024 Presidential Election?

Hunter DeRensis at The National Interest - 21 hours ago

This week the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) took place in National Harbor, Maryland, where thousands of young conservatives and activists from across the country travel for days of speeches, panels, and afterparties. A staple of the conservative movement, and hosted by the American Conservative Union (ACU), the conference has traditionally served as a pilgrimage for prospective and speculative presidential candidates to advertise their wares in front of a friendly audience.

A War In The South China Sea Would Reshape Asia (And The World)

Kerry K. Gershaneck, James E. Fanell at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Kerry K. Gershaneck, James E. Fanell* *Security, Asia* It could start suddenly. *Key point: *Both America and China have been preparing for such a fight. China’s claims of South China Sea (SCS) ownership are illegal, but Beijing’s hyper-nationalistic officials increasingly encourage its forces to attack U.S. Navy ships operating lawfully there. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) appears to be calling for war—a war it may well get. But it is a war that will not stay confined to that body of water, and a war that could ultimately end with regime change in Beijing. One People’s ... more »

A Fatal Mistake: Did Adolf Hitler Lose World War II At Dunkirk?

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, Europe* The world is grateful for his blunders. War movies tend to depict the battles a nation wins—not the ones it loses. So with a blockbuster Hollywood movie on Dunkirk hitting the silver screen this July, one would think that Dunkirk was a British victory. In fact, Dunkirk was the climactic moment of one of the greatest military disasters in history. From May 26 to June 4, 1940, an army of more than three hundred thousand British soldiers was chased off the mainland of Europe, reduced to an exhausted mob clinging to a flotilla of rescue boa... more »

Letting Your Employees Sleep Like a Baby Is Good For Business

Leslie Hammer, Lindsey Alley at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Leslie Hammer, Lindsey Alley* *economy, Americas* Though sleep is not something you typically do at work, work schedules and job stress affect sleep, and poor sleep can affect job performance and safety at work. A long-haul truck driver fell asleep during his shift in Sunbury, Pennsylvania, on Jan. 13. Heading north on Route 147, he drifted into the eastbound shoulder for almost 375 feet, struck the side of the road and flipped his rig. Thankfully, the driver only suffered a minor injury and nobody else was harmed. Poor sleep affects up to 70% of Americans and increases the ris... more »

What Does Israel Have To Fear From Syria's Tunnels?

Michael Peck at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Michael Peck* *Security, Middle East* Is Syria taking a cue from Hezbollah? *Key point: *Syria has never defeated Israel in a war. First, it was Hamas, and then Hezbollah. Now, Syria is threatening to undermine Israel with tunnels. In fact, a Syrian general claims that the Syrian Civil War has turned Syrian soldiers into “experts” at digging holes in the ground. "I can tell you that as experts on tunnel warfare, we have made large strides during this crisis, throughout the years of the war,” Brigadier-General Lu'ayy Shehadeh told Hezbollah TV network Al-Manar. In its seventy-f... more »

Yes, Russia's SU-35 Jet Fighter Is One of the Best Ever Made

Sebastien Roblin at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Sebastien Roblin* *Security, Europe* [image: https://www.reutersconnect.com/all?id=tag%3Areuters.com%2C2013%3Anewsml_GM1E96N1SJX01&share=true] A big deal. *Key Point:* The Su-35 is impressive even though it is not a stealth fighter. It has helped make Russia into a modern power again. The Sukhoi Su-35 Flanker-E is the top Russian air-superiority fighter in service today, and represents the pinnacle of fourth-generation jet fighter design. It will remain so until Russia succeeds in bringing its fifth-generation PAK-FA stealth fighter into production. Distinguished by its unriva... more »

Meet the Cute Little M29 "Weasel": The Legendary Workhorse of World War II

Warfare History Network at The National Interest - 21 hours ago
*Warfare History Network* *History, Europe* Isn't it just adorable? The M29 Weasel was a machine conceived by a bizarre British chemist obsessed with ice for a unit that did not exist and a mission that never occurred. While super-secret Operation Ploughshare was scratched, the Weasel went on to lead a long and productive, if unheralded, life. Designed and manufactured at a feverish pitch even as its raison d’etre disappeared, it went on to find myriad military and civilian applications. Fully tracked and amphibious, it carried a payload and crew approximating that of a jeep. It... more »
