Beware of Google’s Fake News

By Midas Letter (Reporter) Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Google would like us all to believe that, as a corporate citizen, it is above reproach and is genuinely interested in protecting the integrity of news information for its users. Nothing could be more misleading. Google consistently publishes fake news under its Google Newsservice, and furthermore publishes advertising in its news database in contravention of its own Terms of Use. That this practice is supported by Google itself in an effort to continue to publish advertising performance numbers to its shareholders is not surprising. But what is unconscionable is that they do so in rampant volumes without the slightest … Continue reading Beware of Google’s Fake News

How I Got Fired

Exposing Jewish power in America has real consequences  by PHILIP GIRALDI  Two weeks ago, I wrote for Unz.com an article entitled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” It sought to make several points concerning the consequences of Jewish political power vis-à-vis some aspects of U.S. foreign policy. It noted that some individual American Jews and organizations with close ties to Israel, whom I named and identified, are greatly disproportionately represented in the government, media, foundations, think tanks and lobbying that is part and parcel of the deliberations that lead to formulation of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Inevitably, those policies are … Continue reading How I Got Fired

Scientists Somehow Just Discovered a New System of Vessels in Our Brains

Daniel Reich / National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke It is unclear what they do—but they likely play a central role in aging and disease byJAMES HAMBLIN You are now among the first people to see the brain’s lymphatic system. The vessels in the photo above transport fluid that is likely crucial to metabolic and inflammatory processes. Until now, no one knew for sure that they existed. Doctors practicing today have been taught that there are no lymphatic vessels inside the skull. Those deep-purple vessels were seen for the first time in images published this week by researchers at the U.S. … Continue reading Scientists Somehow Just Discovered a New System of Vessels in Our Brains

10 Overlooked Truths About Taking Action

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Kyle Eschenroeder. “This is a holy moment. A sacramental moment. A moment in which a man feels the gods as close as his own breath. What unknowable mercy has spared us this day? What clemency of the divine has turned the enemy’s spear one handbreadth from our throat and driven it fatally into the breast of the beloved comrade at our side? Why are we still here above the earth, we who are no better, no braver, who reverenced heaven no more than these our brothers whom the gods have dispatched to hell?” In … Continue reading 10 Overlooked Truths About Taking Action

All the Pop Culture Touchstones We’ve Never Seen or Heard and Always Get Shit About

The thing about culture these days is that there’s so much (too much?) of it. One could even argue that as a media organization, we’re part of the problem. Nonetheless, as members of the cultured elite — we publish at least one dick-related article a week — there’s still plenty of culture that we’ve been shamed for not having read, seen or heard. For instance… by MEL Nick Leftley, Senior Editor: Any time I say I’ve never seen Top Gun, people look at me like I’m an alien. And admittedly I am, albeit a legal one. But I get the same reaction in my native U.K., … Continue reading All the Pop Culture Touchstones We’ve Never Seen or Heard and Always Get Shit About

The Universe Began With a Big Melt, Not a Big Bang

image edited by F. Kaskais The cosmological constant and the creation of the universe. BY THANU PADMANABHAN There are two tantalizing mysteries about our universe, one dealing with its final fate and the other with its beginning, that have intrigued cosmologists for decades. The community has always believed these to be independent problems—but what if they are not? The first problem has to do with the existence of something called “dark energy,” which is today accelerating the expansion of the universe and will determine its final fate. Theorists tell us that the effects of dark energy can be explained by … Continue reading The Universe Began With a Big Melt, Not a Big Bang

When Working From Home Doesn’t Work

image by Jamie Cullen IBM pioneered telecommuting. Now it wants people back in the office.  by JERRY USEEM In 1979, ibm was putting its stamp on the American landscape. For 20 years, it had been hiring the greats of modernism to erect buildings where scientists and salespeople could work shoulder-to-shoulder commanding the burgeoning computer industry. But that year, one of its new facilities—the Santa Teresa Laboratory, in Silicon Valley—tried an experiment. To ease a logjam at the office mainframe, it installed boxy, green-screened terminals in the homes of five employees, allowing them to work from home. The idea of telecommuting was … Continue reading When Working From Home Doesn’t Work
