Shoot First or Call 911: What Would You Do If Someone Kicked In Your Door?

In the wee hours of the morning on September 13th, Air Force Sgt. Matt Pinkerton and his wife were entertaining guests at their home when an acquaintance of Mrs. Pinkerton’s came knocking. It was 2 AM. After being told to leave by Matt Pinkerton, who closed the door, Kendall Green decided that he’d kick it in and force his way into the home. Matt Pinkerton, having armed himself with his Glock17 9mm prior to approaching the door, then proceeded to discharge two rounds into Green. Green was subsequently killed in an obvious act of self defense. But the story didn’t … Continue reading Shoot First or Call 911: What Would You Do If Someone Kicked In Your Door?

House of Saud fearing own people

The House of Saud is desperately trying to get its house in order – by lethally cracking down on droves of illegal foreign workers. But the real, underlying rationale for the Saudi rulers is not trying to regularize their country’s notorious cheap labor market. Their motivation is best understood as trying to defuse a social time bomb of a young population that is increasingly unemployed and restive. Up to one million migrant workers have been deported from the kingdom in recent months and more than 20,000 are currently detained awaiting repatriation. The crackdown has led to violence in Saudi cities, … Continue reading House of Saud fearing own people

Science Should Not Suppress Ideas, No Matter How Crazy

A psychiatrist by training, the scholarly Velikovsky fashioned himself a historian, astronomer, chemist, geologist, physicist and author as well. He made the latter clear by penning a wildly popular and controversial book, Worlds in Collision. In it, he postulated that around 3,500 years ago, Jupiter ejected a planet-sized “comet” that danced around the planets of the inner solar system for thousands of years, altering Earth’s orbit and axis in the process, and causing various mythological events described in Biblical texts, including the cinematic Parting of the Red Sea. The “comet” would later settle into orbit around the sun, taking its place … Continue reading Science Should Not Suppress Ideas, No Matter How Crazy

CO2 causing oceans to acidify at ‘unprecedented’ rate, scientists warn

The world’s oceans have become 26% more acidic since the start of the Industrial Revolution and continue to acidify at an “unprecedented rate,” threatening marine ecosystems, aquaculture and the societies that rely on them, scientists say. In a report released Thursday, researchers say that carbon dioxide emissions from human activities such as fossil fuel burning are the primary cause of ocean acidification. They say the rate of change may be faster than at any time in the last 300 million years, predicting that by 2100 there will have been a 170% increase in ocean acidity, compared to pre-industrial times. The … Continue reading CO2 causing oceans to acidify at ‘unprecedented’ rate, scientists warn

Are Educational iPad Games Really Educational?

There’s no such thing as too much education, right? As iPads have become ubiquitous, companies have rushed to develop educational games that teach math, physics and even urban planning. But many of these games are only “educational” in the loosest sense of the term, and almost none have been tested in rigorous studies, say scientists. The ones that have been tested show modest results. “It turns out to be pretty hard to make games or content that are better than school,” said Jeremy Roschelle, director of the Center for Technology in Learning at SRI International, a nonprofit research institute in … Continue reading Are Educational iPad Games Really Educational?

Warm your blood to track dangerous oozes

How slow does your blood flow? Using ultrasound to warm up small amounts of blood can help track the rate it flows. The technique works even for small blood vessels where the flow is slowest, which means it could help detect tiny but dangerous blood clots or the development of new blood vessels in tumours. Right now doctors use a method called Doppler ultrasound to see how blood flows in patients’ arms, legs and necks and look for slowed flow due to narrowing arteries or blockages. A handheld device emits sound waves that bounce off blood cells, and a computer … Continue reading Warm your blood to track dangerous oozes

Surprising Foods with More Sugar Than a Krispy Kreme Doughnut

by Dr. Mercola A major new report by Credit Suisse Research Institute1 explores the impact of sugar and sweeteners on humans’ diets, with some shocking revelations and statistics. Worldwide, the average person consumes 70 grams of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup per day (that’s 17 teaspoons), up 46 percent from three decades ago. Yet, in countries like the US, Brazil, Australia and Mexico, sugar consumption is actually much higher, averaging 40 teaspoons per person per day for Americans (compared to just seven for those living in China). And when children younger than 4 are removed from the mix, sugar consumption … Continue reading Surprising Foods with More Sugar Than a Krispy Kreme Doughnut

Astronaut Truths About Life on Planet Earth

Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything Colonel Chris Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4000 hours in space. During this time he has broken into a Space Station with a Swiss army knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, and been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft. The secret to Col. Hadfield’s success-and survival-is an unconventional philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst-and enjoy every moment of it. In An … Continue reading Astronaut Truths About Life on Planet Earth
