Hundreds Of Scientists Urge Trump To Pull Out Of A UN Treaty | The Daily Caller



CO2 “is not a pollutant but a major benefit to agriculture and other life on Earth,” reads the petition, obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Observations since the UNFCCC was written 25 years ago show that warming from increased atmospheric CO2 will be benign — much less than initial model predictions.”

6 Foods That Prevent Muscle Soreness | WashingtonianAs athletes, or really anyone who exercises, well knows, to build muscle you have to break down what you already have. And that can hurt—especially since some studies have suggested stretching does nothing to prevent soreness in the week following a hard workout.

But there is something that can: food. We talked with local health fitness specialist and dietitian Rebecca Scritchfield about the best foods (and drinks) to fight next-day aches.

Legion: 15 Reasons It Is The Best Superhero TV Show - CBR




Created by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, Legion debuted in 1985’s “New Mutants” #25 as the mentally unstable son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier. David Haller was an immensely powerful mutant, whose abilities of telepathy, telekinesis and pyrokinesis were tied to three different personalities residing in his fractured psyche. With his unconventional powers and close ties to an iconic character already well-established on the big screen, Legion was one of the last properties we imagined making the leap to live action TV. Shows what we know.

Hudson (Fixed, #4) by Laurelin Paige — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists




"I can easily divide my life into two parts—before her and after."




Hudson Pierce has led a life few others could even imagine. With money and power at his fingertips, he's wanted for almost nothing. He's never experienced love, however, and he's seen few examples of it in his dysfunctional family. The ridiculous notion of romance has always intrigued him. He's studied it, controlled it, manipulated it, and has yet to understand it.

Until he meets Alayna Withers.

Now, the games he's played in his quest for comprehension can finally come to an end. Or are they just beginning?

Told from his point of view, Hudson fills the holes in his love story with Alayna Withers. His past and relationship with his long-time friend Celia is further revealed and light is shed on his actions during his courtship with Alayna.

Ask a Mexican: Is "sancho" a euphemism? | Ask a Mexican | St. Louis News and Events | Riverfront Times

Ask a Mexican: Is "sancho" a euphemism? | Ask a Mexican | St. Louis News and Events | Riverfront Times



Dear Mexican: I'm a pocha and my husband is a gabacho (by the way, we loved your explanation in your book on why Mexicans and Irish get along so well — it really explained a lot about our marriage). We had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding catered by one of our favorite Mexican restaurants. Two guests from Santa Fe thought our choice of caterer was hysterical because the restaurant is called Sancho's. They explained to us that in Santa Fe, a sancho is a "back door man." I had never heard this before. Is sancho a term just in Santa Fe, or among all Mexicans (except for, apparently, me)?Don't Need No Sanchos
Dear Pocha: Sancho as a euphemism for anal sex? That's a new one for me — and I know all the pervert sexual euphemisms out there, from the infamous Dirty Sanchez to even the Angry Dragon. I'm more familiar with sancho as Mexican Spanish slang for the other man in a relationship — in other words, the man that a husband or boyfriend knows his mujer is cheating with when said husband or boyfriend isn't around (the female equivalent is sancha). The palabra comes from a Mexican Spanish farming term for a "male animal raised by a female animal that isn't its mother," according to the definition offered by the Real Academia Española (RAE), the world's much-fabled custodians of Cervantes (they've yet, for instance, recognized the term chúntaro to describe country bumpkins). It's a perfect description of a cheater: after all, the woman is taking care of someone that's not theirs. The mystery for the Mexican, though, is why sancho — which is also a proper name ala Sancho Panza — took on such a strange meaning. The RAE only says it comes from sanch, which they say is the call used to round up pigs. The Mexican thinks the researcher who wrote that etymology had his sancha underneath his desk when brushing up THAT entry...
Dear Mexican: I'm a white middle-class guy from a part of the country that very obviously used to be Mexico — and might again someday, if some people there get their way. I don't think it was any accident that my forebears ended up where they did — I'm proudly told we have a long pattern of being less-white white people. But that does not mean that people in my family do not grow up to wear American Eagle and name their children things like Harper, Logan, and Madison. They are also white in other ways: stuck up! When I moved to Denver, I called my second cousin to hang out. I was very friendly with most of that side and our dads grew up together in New Mexico. Well, we did not hang out because she thought I was calling up to date her.
Mexican, I am sad. Not sad that my stuck-up cousin won't hang out with or date me, but that we went from being so interesting to so sterile. I understand white people who wish they were ethnic, but I don't know that I'm qualified to get a tattoo of the Virgin. Some white people shave half their head and join other white people who want to be more "real" or more "gutter" or something, but I may not join them because most of them are also named Logan and Harper. What can a white guy do to take a stand for decency and hang on to whatever is left?
White Guy


Dear Gabacho: Who says you're not ethnic? Trying to mack on your second cousin is a VERY Mexican thing to do! Mexicans encourages gabachos to be proud of their ethnic heritage, whether you're a mick, honky, limey, goombah, squarehead, armo, ruski, or whatever chingada slur is used against Croats. That's different than expressing general "white pride," a term loaded with supremacist overtones, undertones, and every tone except sense.

American Gigolos (GOP Watch List, Part 2) | Human EventsIn Congress, the hate for Trump is personal. Not only did he throw a grenade into politicians’ little do-nothing club, but his very existence destroys their self-conception as people with a set of skills.

While Trump was making billions of dollars building skyscrapers, developing golf courses and starring on a hit reality TV show, members of Congress were slowly working their way up the political ladder — interning at think tanks and congressional offices, taking some small government job, then running for the House or Senate, and, hopefully, marrying a woman with a large inheritance.

Only Way to Lose the House: Fail to Repeal Obamacare



Republicans only have eight Senate seats up for re-election next year, while Democrats will have to defend 25 — including ten where Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016. Democrats may topple a couple of Republicans in California, which is the center of the “Resistance,” but that is all they will achieve.

A Review of Karmaism - World Affairs (IC) - Cyber Nations Forums

A Review of Karmaism - World Affairs (IC) - Cyber Nations Forums



Before I begin I would like to address a few things. The mandatory "these are not the opinions of my alliance" should be noted. Also, I make up a few terms as I go because naming conventions haven't been decided yet. If you need clarification, ask, but I'm trying to make it apparent.
A Review of Karmaism
Fundamental Beliefs of the Karmalition as Observed
Behind every person, group of people, organization, or coalition, there are beliefs or sets of beliefs that dicate actions in a somewhat predictable manner. The alliances and blocs that we have grown familiar with here on Bob are no different. Each has moral codes and values that are all slightly distinct. Alliances and Blocs come together to form coalitions when these values and beliefs clash.
Our current conflict, which I feel is open to comment now that we are starting to see the finish line, sheds light on those differences. For our purposes, there are only two sets of beliefs: those of the Hegemony, and those of the Karmalition.
The Hegemony's beliefs stem greatly from Francoism, which I will not even attempt to explain. I recommend reading Vladamir's essays (along with a healthy dose of the comments on them) if you are unfamiliar with it. As it exists in practice, Francoism can basically be summarized by "The NPO will do what it can to preserve itself". Whether or not the great scholars of Pacifica will support that statement is soon to be seen in the responses to this thread.
On the opposite side of the conflict lies the Karmalition, led by the set of beliefs I will refer to as Karmaism until someone proposes a better term. I will attempt to construct an overview of these beliefs as they have been demonstrated to me and the rest of Planet Bob through the actions of the leaders of the Karmalition.
We should begin looking at Karmaism from its inception, or rather the inception of Karma. Archon announced it with the following statement: "We are Karma incarnate, and we stand in solidarity here today to decree that this action [a declaration of war on OV during peace talks] shall not stand. You [Pacifica] will pay for what you have done" (Karma). It is quite evident that double talk, lies, and deceit are not a tenet of the Karmalition. They give people a fair chance, are impartial, and wouldn't do anything behind someone elses back. A particularly bad action would be to engage in peace talks in which you have no intent of giving peace.
"But SirDelirium, I have read Moo's log dump and they gave the NPO a taste of their own medicine," you might say. Well, you would be right. In reality, Karma stands on the actions it stands against.
Another tenet held by the Karmalition states that EZI is wrong. I would say this makes them stand apart from the vast majority of the Hegemony and is a very noble thing, but I would be wrong. Directly preceding the war, several large alliances from the Hegemony added amendments to their charters prohibiting EZI and released their EZI targets due to public pressure.
One thing that sets Karma apart from the Hegemony is the ease of terms they offer to defeated alliances. This, as is plainly clear, is something they follow with the upmost attention. As of this point, I believe no alliance has had terms harsher than "You shall not re-enter the conflict". I would like to say that this is a major departure from precedent, although I am not confident NPO will get the same treatment.
The last major belief of the Karmalition worth noting is the belief that the world should not be unipolar (or that no one Bloc should run the show). Even the name given to the opposition, "Hegemony", is a direct attack at this concept. How deep can this facade go? This is not a war to fight for freedom or soveirgnty. It is a war to fight for power. The fall of the NPO has been proclaimed across the land as the death null of one era and the beginning of another.
Unified as they are, Karma can see this new era from birth to death as long as they wish. Divided they cannot stand against the remnants of the Hegemony, assuming they can regroup. This provides us with a dilemna: to usher in the new era, the Karmalition must become the hegemony.
This last realization proves that only one thing can be said of Karma: as they exist, they are no different than the Hegemony they fight to destroy. They use back-handed tactics to raise themselves politically. They beat down their enemies because they are envious of their power. There are a few policy changes, but the foundation is the same.
Karmaism is Francoism. Karmaism the fresher of two evils.

A good chunk of AOL Time Warner is owned by Prince Alwaleed Ibn Talal the Saudi billionaire. It is well known that Prince AlWaleed is a front for the Saudi royal family. All of the oil money that is swindled from Aramco the Saudi oil company is “invested” by Prince Al Waleed and his company.”


“And he added $450 million to existing shares in AOL Time Warner. “The price was very cheap at around $23,” the prince said.
“I believe in the power of the AOL brand and I am already a shareholder in this global media giant. Therefore, when the price reached lucrative levels, we decided to increase our stake. The weakness in AOL’s stock price is temporary as it reflects the temporary weakness in several areas in which it is involved,” Alwaleed said.”

'Optical Fiber' Made Out of Thin Air - Slashdot

'Optical Fiber' Made Out of Thin Air - SlashdotDave Knott writes:

Scientists from the University of Maryland say they have turned thin air into an "optical fiber" that can transmit and amplify light signals without the need for any cables. As described in the research, this was accomplished by generating a laser with its light split into a ring of multiple beams forming a pipe. Very short and powerful pulses from the laser are used to heat the air molecules along the beam extremely quickly. Such rapid heating produces sound waves that take about a microsecond to converge to the center of the pipe, creating a high-density area surrounded by a low-density area left behind in the wake of the laser beams. The lower density region of air surrounding the center of the air waveguide has a lower refractive index, keeping the light focused, and allowing the higher-density region (with its correspondingly higher index of refraction) to act like an optical fiber. The findings, reported in the journal Optica, have applications in long range laser communications, high-resolution topographic mapping, air pollution and climate change research, and could also be used by the military to make laser weapons.
