Ann Coulter: How Delta Airlines Wrecked American Health Care



In fact, the CBO merely estimates that — in the year 2026 — 22 million Americans who otherwise would have been forced by the Obamacare penalty to buy health insurance will choose not to buy insurance once the penalty is gone. By “people thrown off their health insurance,” liberals mean: “people who voluntarily decide not to have health insurance.” (More accurately, “people who choose not to prove to the government that they have health insurance.”)

Ann Coulter: How Delta Airlines Wrecked American Health Care

Ann Coulter: How Delta Airlines Wrecked American Health CareWhen we’re allowed to call things whatever we want in order to win an argument, there is a total breakdown in democratic politics, fair commerce, and social interaction.

Thus, for example, until we get our terms straight, Americans will be forced to keep paying through the nose whenever they try to buy actual health insurance — because they aren’t buying health insurance; they’re paying for other people’s welfare. Washington will never be able to make it legal to sell real health insurance — because, if they try, the welfare recipients will mob congressional offices claiming that Republicans are murdering them.

Protein powder made from insects.
I don't know if it'll be the next big thing, but someday relatively soon we'll be consuming protein powder made from insects. I know you're making a scrunched-up little disgusted-Yoda face right now, but everything points to this eventuality.
Current proteins derived from dairy are hugely expensive and the price is ever escalating. Caseins and wheys cost protein companies upwards of 6 dollars a pound, which is about 500 to 600 percent more than what they cost in the 90's. And that's just the basic stuff. Very high-quality proteins can cost as much as 20 dollars a pound.
Then, on top of that, companies have to make a profit, and they determine a price point that rewards the store that sells it, the middlemen that got it into the store, and of course, themselves.
Oftentimes, to cut costs, disreputable companies "spike" their protein with keratin from hair, feathers, fur, and who knows what else. (Now you can make your scrunched-up Yoda face.) It all registers as protein, but by no means does it contain all the amino acids you need to grow muscle (or any other tissue). However, it lets these scoundrels shave a few dollars off their production costs.
Costs will likely continue to rise, though. That's why companies, reputable and disreputable alike, will eventually have to consider a less expensive alternative to casein and whey. Enter insect protein. Aside from their exoskeletons, which are made of indigestible chitin, insects are nothing but protein and unsaturated fats. Even that indigestible chitin is potentially useful as it makes each insect a bite-sized combination of protein and Metamucil.
Insect Protein
Insects are cold-blooded, so they're really efficient at converting feed into protein. Consider crickets. They need 12 times less feed than cattle, 4 times less than sheep, and only half as much as chickens and pigs. And they (with the exception of cockroaches, termites, and a few others) do it without producing greenhouse gases.
Think of how easy it would be to mass-produce insects for consumption or conversion into protein powders. You don't need to clear land, you don't need a lot of feed, and many can live off of organic waste. In other words, if you poop, you're halfway there to becoming an insect farmer who sells his mini-livestock to insect processing plants! Keep them dogies movin', cowboy, or should I say, bugboy?
Just think, you could have a crowd of cockroaches, a muster of meal worms, a litter of louse, a drove of dung beetles, or a pack of pillbugs. All of these are edible insects that are eaten somewhere around the world, as are ants, bees, dragonflies, grasshoppers, grubs, midge flies, walking sticks, water bugs, and waxworms. Some, like bees, allegedly taste like "mushroomy bacon," while some of the larger versions of cockroach are said to taste like greasy chicken.
It doesn't matter, though, a theoretical insect protein powder would look and taste totally benign, probably flavored the same way current protein powders are. Protein companies would even wage advertising wars, claiming that their grub protein powder has a better PER (protein efficiency ratio) than waxworm protein powder.
Sure it sounds repugnant, but all food like and dislikes are cultural; you eat what you grew up eating. Things like Jell-O (from boiled down animal parts), hot dogs (do I even need to detail their ingredients?) and even dairy products, things we take for granted in the Western World, are disgusting to various cultures.
But we'll get there. Consider that Safeco Field, home of the Seattle Mariners, now sells toasted grasshoppers inside the park, right next to the brats, dogs, burgers, and Cracker Jacks, and they sold out of them this past opening day.
Besides, some of those spiked protein powders from China? They're probably loaded with bug protein already. You just don't know it. – TC Luoma

Eclipse: Who? What? Where? When? and How? | Total Solar Eclipse 2017



On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse. This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.

Venezuela: People vote in unofficial referendum | Politics | Al Jazeera



2) What will Venezuelans be asked?

People would be asked to answer with "yes" or "no" to three main questions:
  • Do you reject and ignore the realisation of a Constituent Assembly proposed by Nicolas Maduro without the prior approval of the Venezuelan people?
  • Do you demand that the National Armed Forces and all public officials obey and defend the Constitution of 1999 and support the decisions of the National Assembly?
  • Do you approve the renewal of public powers in accordance with the provisions of the Constitution, and the holding of free and transparent elections, as well as the formation of a government of national unity to restore constitutional order?

Widom scaling - Wikipedia

Widom scaling - Wikipedia



Widom scaling (after Benjamin Widom) is a hypothesis in statistical mechanicsregarding the free energy of a magnetic system near its critical point which leads to the critical exponents becoming no longer independent so that they can be parameterized in terms of two values. The hypothesis can be seen to arise as a natural consequence of the block-spin renormalization procedure, when the block size is chosen to be of the same size as the correlation length.[1]
Widom scaling is an example of universality.
