Some Stone Age people in Ireland left the bodies of their dead to decompose in a natural rocky chamber on a mountain. Genetic analysis of two of these bodies shows they had darker skin, like many people in Europe at the time, and suggests they lived in fairly large communities.
The Left wants to make us all into one population with trivial surface differences. They want this in order to deny our inner differences so that they can argue that since we are all the same, the naturally talented do not deserve to be in power, and the mob can rule instead. With Leftism, you get infinite repetition of the French Revolution, over and over again until your society destroys itself. Then, you are finally equal!
“My sign states: ‘White lives matter, who else will pay for welfare?’ That is a question, not a statement,” the owner of Mike’s Tire in Bethesda told CNN. “It doesn’t have a question mark at the end because I don’t have one to put there.”
“It’s kind of sad that people go to these extents to read into stuff and twist and turn a question. [It’s] not a racist question. I am not a racist,” Mike told WTRF, adding that he has Black customers and deliverymen. “The racist stuff is just somebody twisting and turning, and it’s ridiculous. Everything right now is very high tension, and this might be some of it, some way that people try to let the steam go.”
The obvious point: the Left will not hear that “White Lives Matter” because it wants to erase and replace Whites with trace admixture. Then, when this place looks like South America, Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, or the Mediterranean, the Left can declare that race does not matter because it no longer exists, and therefore all we have is loyalty to the State and nothing else.
The platform, Global Research, features a Canadian domain name and offers an ever-expanding collection of conspiracy theories, such as the myth that the 9/11 attacks and COVID-19 pandemic were both planned in order to control the population. The website also hosts articles experts have attributed to a Russian spy agency.
With more than 275,000 Facebook followers and a potential readership in excess of 350,000 per article, the site has the biggest reach among “Kremlin-aligned” disinformation sites, according to the U.S. State Department.
In other words, Russian bots like to repost it. It is hard to reconcile the idea of a dangerous far-Right site with one that praises John Lennon.
“Homosexual people have the right to be in a family. They are children of God,” Francis said. “You can’t kick someone out of a family, nor make their life miserable for this. What we have to have is a civil union law; that way they are legally covered.”
Christianity fought back against Darwinism and found itself embracing humanism and equality as a result, which means that a century later, it has become inverted and regularly argues for the exact opposite of the ideas behind the religion. This popular pope makes the same mistakes that Big Tech and the NFL did, which is to pander to the most visible rising new audience instead of that audience which has consistently supported the Church over the aeons.
The department’s findings are primarily based on investigations it has opened at 12 schools, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford and Georgetown universities. Federal officials began investigating the schools amid suspicion that they had failed to report millions of dollars in gifts and contracts from sources in China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
According to early findings in the report, most of the 12 schools have had financial dealings with Huawei, the Chinese tech giant that some U.S. officials say is a threat to national security, and at least one had ties directly to the Chinese Communist Party. Others had deals with the Russian government and institutions in Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
You have an organization and it has a goal. Then you let in some Leftists. For them, there is only one goal, which is working toward equality. Consequently, your organization becomes inverted, in that now the goal is working toward equality, and your old goal becomes merely incidental. That means that you spend all of your time working for the Leftists and none doing what makes you great, and that means that you have to bring in the money from somewhere, so you will end up in bed with some nasty people.
“We do not want to see teachers teaching their white pupils about white privilege and inherited racial guilt” she told the Commons.
“And let me be clear, any school which teaches these elements of critical race theory as fact, or which promotes partisan political views such as defunding the police without offering a balanced treatment of opposing views is breaking the law.“
While critical race theory exists as a broad school of thought that originated from left wing legal activism, central tenets of the philosophy include accepting the existence of systemic racism, as well as the prevalence of white supremacy and privilege over other racial groups.
The backlash against the Leftist takeover gains strength. Pointing out that all of their philosophies are based on assumptions makes it easy to write them off. Back in RealityLand, we might ask the pointed question as to why schools are not simply teaching skills and classics instead of inventing new material to fill the void. It looks like their new round of diverse, rainbow, tolerant, etc. SJW-students are not capable of handling the older, more rigorous material, so the schools have invented a new memorization contest that even proles can win.
“Chrome exempts Google’s own sites, such as Search and YouTube, from this setting,” he wrote. “After I quit and relaunch, the [YouTube] cookies are deleted, but the database storage, local storage, and service workers are still there!”
He found the same behavior related to Google.com, but no other websites.
Big surprise: monopolies usually use one product to shore up others. This tells us that despite what they loudly proclaim in public, the Googites know that their primary business model is not working, and they feel a need to manipulate their customer base in order to squeeze more bucks out of it through monitoring of user data.
Exposure to airborne pollutants is harmful also for babies in the womb. It can cause a premature birth or low birth weight. Both of these factors are associated with higher infant mortality.
Nearly two-thirds of the 500,000 deaths of infants documented were associated with indoor air pollution, particularly arising from solid fuels such as charcoal, wood, and animal dung for cooking.
Backward association, one would think. Those who are poor tend to have either experienced a temporary calamity, or are of bad (mutated, degraded) genetic heritage, and therefore tend toward both poor birth weight and having solid fuel stoves.
The insect is the largest member of the wasp family and conservationists have warned that the invasive species’ existence in Europe could have a devastating impact on local honeybee populations.
Just like diversity. The Asian hornets will take over, then find out that Europe requires specializations that they do not have, and die out, leaving behind a void where useful creatures once existed.
The think tank said a “robot revolution” would create 97 million jobs worldwide but destroy almost as many, leaving some communities at risk.
Routine or manual jobs in administration and data processing were most at threat of automation, WEF said.
We need to stop viewing a job as the only way to survive. People need homesteads where they can raise basic foodstuffs, and have jobs for extra spending money. Dependence on jobs has made us weak, and we keep taxing the few people still working in order to provide for the rest, which just destroys our strength while increasing our weakness.
Researchers in Scotland and Germany exposed bee colonies in a laboratory setting to a range of radiation levels found in areas of the exclusion zone around the ruined Chernobyl site, where a reactor exploded in 1986 in the world’s worst nuclear disaster.
They found that colony reproduction reduced by 30 to 45 percent at doses previously considered too low to impact insects.
Just think about what all those nuclear tests, microwaves, 5G, and reactor accidents are doing to us. Perhaps technology will eliminate humanity. Most likely, only the simplistic will survive.
As security experts warn that the U.S. presidential election could spark renewed civil unrest, those stores remain clad in plywood as retailers seek to keep property and employees safe in the event street violence flares anew.
Everyone has it backwards as usual. Bullies do not strike strong targets, but weak ones, and they do so in order to make people give in and bow to the bully instead of standing up for what is obviously real. These riots exist to make the moderates panic and endorse Biden because Trump will be blamed for the economic crash, race riots, COVID-19 crisis, and Russian intervention. In the meantime, a vote for Biden is a vote for China.
It follows rising tensions over the beheading of a teacher in the Paris suburbs last Friday by a radicalised terrorist infuriated that cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed were shown to children.
People are slowly figuring out that they were hoodwinked by the diversity propaganda into voting for their own destruction, and they are (belatedly) outraged. In the meantime, we can see the cause for concern:
A 20-year-old Syrian who stabbed one person to death and wounded another in Dresden was likely motivated by Islamic extremism, German prosecutors said on Wednesday.
As the US found out on 9/11, diversity means that people who hate you walk among you, and no social unity exists to oppose real threats, only fight more ineffectual wars. This is how democracy ends.
“The threats specifically contained a promise that guns had been procured to ‘do a Christchurch all over again,” the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) tweeted Saturday, referencing the attack on two mosques in New Zealand in 2019 that killed 51 Muslims. Police were notified of the threats received last weekend.
That crime prompted 25 human rights groups to send a letter Oct. 5 to Trudeau asking for an action plan to shut down white supremacist groups “so that we don’t continue to keep having to go to funeral after funeral, to respond to threats after threats,” said Farooq.
“It needs to stop and the way that needs to stop is through a national action plan to dismantle these kinds of white supremacist, neo-Nazi, violent, Islamophobic or xenophobic groups.”
As usual, in the name of the pitied, the tyrant seizes control. Terms like “white supremacist, neo-Nazi, violent, Islamophobic and xenophobic” will quickly expand in definition to mean anyone who is not on the Left side of FDR.
The article, headlined “Senator Hirono Demands ACB Be Weighed Against A Duck To See If She Is A Witch,” uses humor to suggest a fictional depiction of Hirono thinks Barrett is a witch and should be weighed against a duck.
Whenever an election appears or the Right appears to be leading, the social media bans come out, just as if the instructions came straight from Beijing.
“We were all shocked and immediately drove to their home while others tried to call police and an ambulance. They refused to dispatch an ambulance, they said it was a dangerous area even though it’s 2km away from Kruger Mpumalanga international airport,” said Christiaan.
Now you see the future of diversity: the have-nots eat up the haves, then spend the rest of their days sitting around in dirt poverty, thankful for the shade of great monuments built by people who no longer exist.
Americans That Give Money to Support a Racist
Leftists set up slick site for Antifa to find the location of Trump voters in each neighborhood and commit acts of violence against them. Somehow this is not “incitement” according to Big Tech.
“A lot of people tried to trace themselves and find out where they came from – all they could find out was maybe a country,” he explains. “So to go through what I went through – to find out what tribal ancestry I had and to be able to step back into – it was a really emotional, satisfying feeling. There’s a fullness that comes upon me, every time I land in Africa. As I step on the ground, everything sort of changes”.
They both speak not of white culture but of “the dominant culture”, and navigating that as black people.
However, he says, he never felt more at home than in Gabon. “I feel invigorated by it. And it makes me feel alive in a way that I don’t feel here – it gives me a sense of belonging in a world that I deserve to be in.” And so, someone known by so many, has come to know a bit more about himself.
People need roots. A dominant (diverse) culture will not work for them. Coming home means that they never have doubt about who they are or what they should do ever again.
The Guardian first revealed in July that World Rugby was considering becoming the first international sports federation to adopt such a policy after finding “at least a 20-30% greater risk” of injury risk factors when a female player is tackled by someone who has gone through male puberty.
In a document explaining its decision published on Friday, World Rugby said that “It is known that biological males (whose puberty and development is influenced by androgens/testosterone) are stronger by 25% to 50%, are 30% more powerful, 40% heavier, and about 15% faster than biological females.
“That combination of mass, strength, power and speed means that in a direct physical contest, ciswomen in all these domains will be at significant risk of injury.”
After years of pursuing equality, we finally note biological reality.
Tehran is specifically accused of threatening Democratic voters in four states by sending emails that claimed to be from the Proud Boys, the Trump-supporting far-right group. Moscow, authorities said, obtained voter information just as they had during the 2016 election. Authorities did not detail what Russia has allegedly done to influence Americans’ votes.
The whole point of this is to misdirect away from China, who is actually influencing the election by funding the DNC, riots, and SJW movement.
China, bluntly, has been a graveyard for Western retailers. The early years of this century saw a host of European and American retailers announce ambitious openings in China as they sought to cash in on the country’s growing wealth and living standards. From the UK, they included Tesco, Marks & Spencer and B&Q. From France came Auchan and Carrefour and, from the United States, Best Buy, Home Depot and Walmart.
One by one, the foreign retailers have withdrawn, with M&S closing its last Chinese store in March 2017 and Tesco completing its exit from the country in February this year. Kingfisher, the parent of B&Q, sold its controlling stake in the do-it-yourself group’s Chinese arm as long ago as 2014. Its big US rival, Home Depot, had pulled out two years earlier. Even foreign operators nearer to China have enjoyed little success. Takashimaya, the Japanese department store operator which has expanded successfully into Vietnam, Singapore and Thailand, closed its flagship store in Shanghai in August last year and called a halt to its Chinese ambitions.
China wants to take our money and exploit us, but not accept our trade or businesses in return.
Among those tested for COVID-19, e-cigarette users were five times more likely to be diagnosed with COVID-19, and those who used both e-cigarettes and traditional cigarettes (“dual users”) were seven times more likely to be diagnosed with COVID-19, compared with those who did not use e-cigarettes or traditional cigarettes.
And now, the anomalous results for the young can be explained: COVID-19 strikes those with weakened hearts, lungs, or brains. Sometimes all three.
Using inverse dynamics techniques, we found that toe springs alter the joint moments and work at the toes such that greater degrees of toe spring curvature resulted in lower work requirements during walking. Our results help explain why toe springs have been a pervasive feature in shoes for centuries but also suggest that toe springs may contribute to weakening of the foot muscles and possibly to increased susceptibility to common pathological conditions such as plantar fasciitis.
He rediscovers Darwin’s concept of degeneration, which says that traits not used gradually disappear. The more we take over from nature, the less our bodies are able to do what they once did, which means that soon we will all be wearing thick glasses, orthotic shoes, braces, and plastic girdles in order to achieve minimal biological function.
Since 1977, U.S. states have passed laws steadily raising the age for which a child must ride in a car safety seat. These laws significantly raise the cost of having a third child, as many regular-sized cars cannot fit three child seats in the back. Using census data and state-year variation in laws, we estimate that when women have two children of ages requiring mandated car seats, they have a lower annual probability of giving birth by 0.73 percentage points. Consistent with a causal channel, this effect is limited to third child births, is concentrated in households with access to a car, and is larger when a male is present (when both front seats are likely to be occupied). We estimate that these laws prevented only 57 car crash fatalities of children nationwide in 2017. Simultaneously, they led to a permanent reduction of approximately 8,000 births in the same year, and 145,000 fewer births since 1980, with 90% of this decline being since 2000.
The more we try to make the world safe for us, the more we destroy ourselves through weakness.
But many of those once-die-hard urbanites fleeing to the burbs would have likely left the city anyway. The coronavirus simply sped up their departures.
“People are looking for space and affordability, and [the suburbs are] where they can find it. Especially as millennials are at an age where they’re settling down and expanding their families, they’re realizing how nice it is to have more space.”
Like Generation X, the millennials have realized that the cosmopolitan dream is nonsense, and so they are retreating to the White suburbs for safety and comfort.
In a stinging attack, Lord Woolley – who headed Theresa May’s advisory board – accuses the prime minister of wanting to “change the race narrative”, rather than achieve actual change.
Mr Johnson appeared to believe people from ethnic minorities should “stop wallowing in victimhood”, he suggests – revealing he was forced out because the prime minister only wants staff who are “demonstrably his”.
Lord Woolley pointed to three policy initiatives that are “gathering dust”: tackling low ethnic minority pay and achievement in higher education, and recruiting 30,000 more black teachers.
For the last sixty years at least, civil rights and humanism have provided a “blank check” for government. Find someone somewhere who is suffering and a member of a minority group, and you could get yourself a fat wad of cash and a promotion. In the twenty-first century, however, human groups are moving from symbolic ideals like equality and pluralism to practical ideals such as function and realism. “Fighting racism” seems ludicrous in that context; if racism exists, then it is likely a backlash to diversity, which means that certain plans are unrealistic and we should stop throwing money into the diversity abyss. After all, despite having taxed people away from prosperity, our governments are still broke trying to solve these perpetually insoluble “problems.”
Glover has been working on Greenwood since early 2019, but he said interest in the venture spiked after the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked a nationwide reckoning with racism that has inspired many Americans — including many in the corporate world — to support Black-owned businesses and financial institutions.
Every race needs its own institutions and leaders. This is best accomplished on separate continents.
A federal judge has given the green light to a pair of lawsuits saying shooter Dylann Roof was illegally allowed to purchase the gun he used in the shooting at Charleston, S.C.’s Emanuel AME Church in 2015.
Judge Margaret Seymour ruled Friday that a federal agent failed to follow the agency’s background check rules under the Brady Act, which denies gun purchases by someone with a felony.
While the right hand waves a threat to take your AR-15s in public, the left hand (in private) will set up a series of lawsuits that will bankrupt every gun manufacturer in North America. You might have a 2A right to a gun, but it will need to be one that you make yourself, since you will not be able to buy one.
The US Department of Agriculture has estimated more than 129 million trees have died since 2010 as a result of years of drought and bark beetle infestations.
Over the last five years, the Sierra National Forest lost 36.1 million trees to the same deadly combination.
We are dancing around the obvious: California spent its money on diversity instead of infrastructure, and in doing so, ignored the need to maintain these forests. No doubt its entitled workers, who do a half-hour of work between union-mandated breaks and diversity training, have something to do with how little gets done.
By Tuesday, more than three years after Harvey, the city’s single-family home recovery program had repaired or reconstructed 90 homes and sent 94 reimbursement checks to homeowners who performed their own repair work.
City officials, including Turner, have accused the land office, which administers disaster recovery funds statewide, of obstructing their progress by changing guidelines and slow-walking its reviews of homeowner applications. Houston’s program prioritizes low-income, disabled and senior residents, which city officials also say is causing the recovery to move slower.
Diversity Mayor Sylvester Turner converted flood relief funds into yet another diversity wealth transfer program, and not surprisingly, Texas wants him to instead focus on rebuilding what was lost. This is your future under diversity, not as far from South Africa as you would like to think.
What is a proctoscope?
Between Jan. 1 and Sept. 30 of 2020, 110 officers left the Seattle Police Department, and police sources say that number is likely to rise significantly over the next six to eight weeks.
Society had a chance to stand up for its police when they were falsely accused of brutality. Instead we got the Biden/Harris riots designed to scare people away from voting Trump. The side effect of this will be a replacement of a once-functional police force with political flunkies as the White officers flee and are replaced by diversity cops. 69% of the departing officers are White.
Relative to consuming less than one sugary beverage per day, higher intake of sugary beverages was associated with lower total brain volume (1-2/day, β ± standard error [SE] = -0.55 ± 0.14 mean percent difference, P = .0002; >2/day, β ± SE = -0.68 ± 0.18, P < .0001), and poorer performance on tests of episodic memory (all P < .01). Daily fruit juice intake was associated with lower total brain volume, hippocampal volume, and poorer episodic memory (all P < .05).
We built our modern food industry on cheap carbs, vegetable oils, and sugar. Now it turns out that all of these are killing us, and we have introduced a slow epidemic of entirely avoidable diseases.
In written submissions, Mr Hyam said: “That children are not capable of giving informed consent to undergo a type of medical intervention about which the evidence base is poor, the risks and potential side-effects are still largely unknown, and which is likely to set them on a path towards permanent and life-altering physical, psychological, emotional and developmental consequences… is the common-sense and obvious position.”
He told the court that referrals to GIDS had seen a “20-fold increase”, rising from 97 in 2009 to 2,590 in 2018.
Judge analogizes giving children puberty blockers to rape, saying that an issue of consent exists, basically using human rights law to defend itself. Leftists will regroup and start working on the idea that children can consent to some things, and this will coincidentally help them in their quest to legitimize “pedosexuality.”
As first noted by Galton (1907), a statistical combination of quantitative judgments made by multiple judges is typically more accurate than the judgment of a randomly selected individual judge.
Specifically, if judges’ errors are mostly independent from each other, their judgments will frequently bracket the correct answer, and errors will cancel out. In contrast, when errors are systematically correlated—that is, when judges collectively either under- or overestimate the true value—bracketing will occur only rarely, and thus judgment aggregation loses most of its benefits.
In other words, stochastic resonance (“wisdom of crowds”) works when people are making random errors, but backfires when people are making the same error, since it serves to amplify that. This means that in its first iteration, the wisdom of crowds eliminates random error, but as people accept that wisdom as the default, it then suffers from a snowball effect as people introduce error into the working model and this becomes accepted as desirable, and therefore, is emulated.
Even the US Surgeon General advises against cannabis use during pregnancy.
“THC has been found in breast milk for up to six days after the last recorded use,” his announcement explains.
“It may affect the newborn’s brain development and result in hyperactivity, poor cognitive function, and other long-term consequences.”
We are going to find a plethora of deleterious mutations accumulated through poor parental choices related to modern lifestyles. Promiscuity, drug use, modern food, workplace stress, and sedentary lifestyles all contribute to unhealthy, mutated children. Not surprisingly, rates of autism and other disorders seem to have risen in the 1970s, after the social changes brought on by the 1960s.
The veteran broadcaster said that the standard of living in wealthy nations is going to have to take a pause.
Nature would flourish once again he believes when “those that have a great deal, perhaps, have a little less”.
Speaking personally and frankly, Sir David explained, “We are going to have to live more economically than we do. And we can do that and, I believe we will do it more happily, not less happily. And that the excesses the capitalist system has brought us, have got to be curbed somehow.”
Capitalism brought unprecedented comfort and stability to our poor, most of all. He may be referring to consumerism, the system that occurs when people live off of government benefits such as retirement and therefore, spend all their other money on consumer gadgets and fads, all of which quickly end up in the landfill.
Trump’s executive order released on Sept. 22 said “many people are pushing a different vision of America that is grounded in hierarchies based on collective social and political identities rather than in the inherent and equal dignity of every person as an individual.”
It went on to say: “This ideology is rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country; that some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.”
Those who do not comply with the executive order risk losing federal funds.
Trump crushes the Leftist propaganda juggernaut. This frees up resources for teaching of actually useful topics, and will exclude the incapable from universities. He just gave them all a chance to save themselves, but they are going to be shedding some Diversity and Inclusion instructors.
Before he took his job, Suzman had spent some 15 years based among the Ju/’hoansi “Bushmen” of eastern Namibia, who were notable for having sustained a foraging society well into the 20th century. And while he lived among them, he witnessed first-hand how the hunter-gatherer life was far from the constant struggle for survival many of us imagine it to have been. In 1966, a landmark anthropology paper had found that the Ju/’hoansi were generally well nourished and lived long, content lives. They used the bulk of their time to rest, or have fun. Astonishingly, they spent just 15 hours a week finding food, and they stored little for the future, trusting in the surrounding desert to provide when required.
A Western agrarian economy improves on this, much as feudalism did, by organizing people toward greater efficiency by allowing them to keep most of their time as their own. Once social equality came onto the scene, however, everyone was competing for the same jobs, and so demonstrating that you were a good tool working 120 hours a week became imperative if you wanted to keep your job, much less rise. People are wasting their lives doing make-work for the sake of an economy that is not capitalist, but fundamentally socialist. We are going out the same way that the Soviets did, just through excess and not paucity.
The “hinge of history” hypothesis proposes that we are, right now, at a turning point.
Yes, we are leaving behind chasing after symbols (materialism, dualism, egalitarianism) and instead embracing a wide-spectrum realism paired to transcendental goals.
Faced with limited job prospects, many ended up single and childless. Japan’s 2015 census revealed there were 3.4 million people in their 40s and 50s who had not married and lived with their parents.
Modern systems reward the obedient and punish those who want to experience life. Jobs are miserable, and so people become hikikomori for the same reason that birth rates are falling across the first world.
Although activists sounded the alarm about plastic waste in the 1970s, the documentary claims from 1990 to 2010, plastic production more than doubled. We’ve been sorting our trash for decades, believing it would be recycled. But the truth is the vast majority of the plastic we use won’t be. Over the last seven decades, less than 10 per cent of plastic waste has been recycled.
Democracy rewards actors who say whatever is necessary to make the crowd go back to sleep. These people do not choose direction, but put out fires, so that whenever someone complains that complaint is addressed, but nothing ever fundamentally changes. This enables them to continue doing whatever profits them while pretending to be altruists on the outside; a cynic might see Leftism as simply one manifestation of this activity.
These bedfellows, whose stories and fortunes are never publicly presented as related, are in reality intertwined under the umbrella of a fiscal sponsor named the International Development Exchange. A modestly endowed West Coast nonprofit with origins in the Peace Corps—which for decades supported local farmers, shepherds, and agricultural workers across the Global South—IDEX has, in the past six years, been transformed into two distinct new things: the infrastructure back end to the Black Lives Matter organization in the United States and also, at the very same time, an investment fund vehicle driven by recruited MBAs and finance experts seeking to leverage decades of on-the-ground grantee relationships for novel forms of potentially problematic lending instruments.
It is as if industry, having run out of high-margin profits from White America, looks excitedly toward third world populations, which it seeks to both weaponize to take over and then exploit with policies designed to take advantage of their specific behaviors.
“In Obergefell v. Hodges … the Court read a right to same-sex marriage into the Fourteenth Amendment, even though that right is found nowhere in the text. Several Members of the Court noted that the Court’s decision would threaten the religious liberty of the many Americans who believe that marriage is a sacred institution between one man and one woman. If the States had been allowed to resolve this question through legislation, they could have included accommodations for those who hold these religious beliefs. … The Court, however, bypassed that democratic process. Worse still, though it briefly acknowledged that those with sincerely held religious objections to same-sex marriage are often ‘decent and honorable,’ … the Court went on to suggest that those beliefs espoused a bigoted worldview.”
The Left has backdoored straight Communism into America with the 14A, which will need to be removed since clarification will be worked around by the courts yet again. It always was bad law, and now we see how that shakes out over time.
The graffiti invoked another rebellious juncture in what is now the United States: the uprising in 1680 when Pueblo Indians handed Spain one of its bloodiest defeats anywhere in its vast colonial empire. From the protests in the late spring against New Mexico’s conquistador monuments to the writing last month emblazoning the walls of Santa Fe and Taos celebrating the Pueblo Revolt, the meticulously orchestrated rebellion that exploded 340 years ago is resonating once again.
The people at The New York Times tend to be ironists, or those who reject reality in favor of a symbolic reality where results do not matter but symbolism and appearance do. They would love to see a rebellion by the third world to replace the White, and the fact that the writers at the Times would be first against the wall afterwards seems to have escaped them. Like shopkeepers, Leftists are perpetually sophomoric: they know enough to get what they want, but not enough to know what it makes sense to want. We can save them the rebellion part and simply send them to Venezuela. Everything makes more of itself, in order to justify itself to itself; peasant revolutions make everyone into peasants.
When one Vodafone user threatened on Twitter to switch service providers after noticing the change on his phone this week, Vodafone replied that the move was “simply to celebrate one of the three beautiful official languages” in the country (the third is New Zealand sign language).
“There are no plans to change it at this stage,” the company added on Twitter.
A rival company, 2Degrees, asked the complainant “kei te pēhea koe,” or “how are you?” before telling the man that he “better not switch to us” because the firm “love[s] celebrating te reo Māori too!”
And Spark, Vodafone’s largest competitor, added on Twitter: “Te Reo is a normal part of our country and we will continue to encourage and give tools to those who wish to expand their knowledge and cultural understanding.”
How to signal that you want to remain in the twentieth century and fear the twenty-first. We see here the problem of competition when confronting a strong pop culture based in Leftist politics: everyone conforms, and so there are no other options because any dissenter will be accused of “racism.”
But opportunities are being lost to use this “treasure chest of incredible diversity” as species vanish due to habitat destruction and climate change.
The scientists estimate that the extinction risk may be much higher than previously thought, with an estimated 140,000, or 39.4%, of vascular plants estimated to be threatened with extinction, compared with 21% in 2016.
They use this article to argue against climate change and in favor of exploiting unknown species for financial gain, but what is really at stake here is that we are dismantling biodiversity and by doing so, harming the ecosystems that are important for being beautiful, functional, sane, and adding joy to a life of otherwise drudgery. We are damaging our souls by using too much land and consequently, committing ecocide.
Within a roughly 1,000-mile strip of land stretching from San Diego to Seattle lie most major internet businesses and network control or standards bodies (and those that aren’t there likely lie elsewhere in the United States). So — as the governments of China, Russia and Iran never tire of explaining — while Americans constitute around 310 million out of the world’s 4.3 billion internet users (around 8 percent), the U.S. government exercises influence or control over more than 70 percent of the internet’s controls and services.
When that control goes away, so do the standards of the internet, replaced by many private networks. Like globalism and diversity, the idea of a single rule for everyone fails on the internet, too.
Results of the study suggest that one way to increase the representation and academic success of ESL students in STEM is to target their sense of belonging. “Students often ask themselves, ‘Do I belong here?’ and we know that this concern can undermine academic performance and persistence,” said LaCosse.
Nationalism provides the best social belonging intervention. When you are among your people, you obviously belong. That requires continental separation, however.
Beholden to privacy rules, Western officials largely trusted people to hand over names to contact tracers. But that trust was not repaid, in large part because governments neglected services that were crucial to winning people’s cooperation: a fast and accurate testing system, and guarantees that people would be housed, fed and paid while they isolated.
That, and a total lack of social trust: when you have no faith in others being like you, there is no point trying to stop the spread of the virus. It might take Them out first.
She called on the government to provide money for items such as personal protective equipment, extra cleaning, more staff and the physical adaptations made to schools. “It’s all having to be met from existing funds, which already have gaps.”
The grifters have their hands out again, despite education having become subsidized daycare and meals because we dumbed it down to include everyone. How about we cut budgets back to the 3Rs instead, or better yet, abolish public education and let everyone keep their money and spend it as they see fit?
Scientists have said a minimum of 30% of the planet must be safeguarded, through protected areas and conservation.
Half Earth goes mainstream. All of our other plans are incoherent and serve as a guise for letting socialism (further) in the backdoor.
The researchers expected that the best programmer would outperform his average counterpart by a factor of two or three. But it turned out that the most skilled programmer far outperformed the worst. He was 20 times faster at coding, 25 times faster at debugging, and 10 times faster at program execution than the programmer with the lowest marks.
With a fixed amount of money for salaries and a project I needed to complete, I had a choice: Hire 10 to 25 average engineers, or hire one “rock-star” and pay significantly more than what I’d pay the others, if necessary.
Over the years, I’ve come to see that the best programmer doesn’t add 10 times the value. He or she adds more like a 100 times.
Bill Gates, whom I worked with while on the Microsoft board, purportedly went further. He is often quoted as saying, “A great lathe operator commands several times the wages of an average lathe operator, but a great writer of software code is worth 10,000 times the price of an average software writer.”
We are promoting the wrong people through meritocracy, resulting in an economy where everyone gets a terrible job but a few with the right talents turn out really well. This serves most badly, since they could have skipped a lot of stress and trauma and gone into a job fitting their skills instead, spending less time at work and more with family.
