CNN, by Matt Smith Posted By: Pluperfect- Mon, 11 17 2013 10:17:20 GMT A 2,000'pound European satellite burned up as it re'entered Earth´s atmosphere early Monday, controllers reported. Re'entry was made close to 1 a.m. Monday (7 p.m. ET), the European Space Agency said. "As expected, the satellite disintegrated in the high atmosphere and no damage to property has been reported," the space agency said. The Gravity Field and Steady'State Ocean Circulation Explorer '' a European Space Agency satellite known shorthand as GOCE '' crossed over Siberia, the western Pacific Ocean, the eastern Indian Ocean and Antarctica upon its re'entry. The 5'meter (16'foot) satellite was launched in 2009 to map variations in the Earth´s gravity in 3'D,
Townhall.com, by Star Parker Posted By: SpeedMaster- Mon, 11 14 2013 10:14:49 GMT Politics is in the eye of the beholder. Post'mortems now gushing forth about why Ken Cuccinelli, conservative Republican candidate for governor in Virginia, lost to Democrat Terry McAuliffe, a business'as'usual political retread from the Clinton crowd, tell us more about who produces this punditry than what reality actually might be. Were hearing that the Tea Party killed Cuccinelli (according to the Wall Street Journal editorial page they stabbed him in the back) with the government shutdown and that, once again, a socially conservative Republican candidate has shown he cant win the votes of women.
The Week, by Rose George Posted By: Pluperfect- Mon, 11 12 2013 10:12:28 GMT T HE BRIDGE OF a modern ship is a shock on first encounter. Although this place is still known as the wheelhouse, the wheel at the helm is not wooden and impressive, but mundane plastic, the kind that would suit a video arcade game. Nearly all else is automated. A bank of screens contains radar, ECDIS an electronic chart system and AIS, an automatic identification system that transmits the ship´s name, speed and heading, and other details to other ships, port authorities, and well'equipped pirates. There is radio, a gyrocompass and magnetic compass, a tachometer and echo sounder. Capt. Glenn
New York Times, by Michael D. Schmidt & Eric Schmitt Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 11 09 2013 10:09:48 GMT WASHINGTON When President Obama travels abroad, his staff packs briefing books, gifts for foreign leaders and something more closely associated with camping than diplomacy: a tent. Even when Mr. Obama travels to allied nations, aides quickly set up the security tent which has opaque sides and noise'making devices inside in a room near his hotel suite. When the president needs to read a classified document or have a sensitive conversation, he ducks into the tent to shield himself from secret video cameras and listening devices. American security officials demand that their bosses not just the president, but
Front Page Magazine, by Majid Rafizadeh Posted By: SpeedMaster- Mon, 11 07 2013 10:07:37 GMT I have long pointed out that Barack Obamas administration, and particularly president Obama himself, has been more than likely clandestinely communicating and working with the Islamic Republic of Iran much longer than just before the current nuclear talks, and even long before President Hassan Rouhani came to the United States to attend the UN General Assembly. Several national and international outlets have just released more details and reports on this issue.
New Republic, by Noam Scheiber Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 11 06 2013 10:06:41 GMT ere three years from the next presidential election, and Hillary Clinton is, once again, the inevitable Democratic nominee. Congressional Republicans have spent months investigating her like she already resides in the White House. The New York Times has its own dedicated Clinton correspondent, whose job it is to chronicle everything from Hillarys summer accommodations (CLINTONS FIND A NEW PLACE TO VACATION IN THE HAMPTONS) to her distinct style of buckraking (IN CLINTON FUNDRAISING, EXPECT A FULL EMBRACE). There is a feature'length Hillary biopic in the works, and a well'funded super PACReady for Hillarybent on easing her way into the race.
New York Post, by Andrea Peyser Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 11 04 2013 10:04:31 GMT As you dig into your Butterball with all the trimmings this Thanksgiving, remember that millions of famished schoolkids around America may be forced to forgo classic turkey and chow down instead on vegan black'bean patties and organic locavore quinoa salad. On Nov. 1, sizable cuts were gouged into the federal food'stamp program (or, as its now called, SNAP, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), which feeds 47.6 million people, or nearly one in six Americans. In the city, 1.9 million folks get the bulk of their Jell'O and Campbells Soup from stamps. But news has spread among the poor, like leafy green vegetables,
Atlantic, by Connor Simpson Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 11 02 2013 10:02:28 GMT The former Secretary of State was offered the President´s position at Penn State through a search firm hired to find a steady hand to help the University in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal. She turned them down. Condoleezza Rice is perfectly happy with her position as a political science professor at Stanford, the university she´s worked with on and off for thirty years, according to the statement her reps gave the Philadelphia Inquirer. "We received a request about this position through a search firm," Georgia Godfrey, Rice´s chief of staff, said. "Our office declined on her behalf, since she
PJ Media, by Stephen Green Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 11 55 2013 09:55:12 GMT The good news is the U.S. economy wheezed out 204,000 new jobs in October, despite all the sound and fury (signifying very little) over the 17%, 16'day'long government semi'demi'shutdown. The bad news is pretty much everything else, so lets take a look at what lies underneath the big headline number. CNBC put a happy face on the latest jobs report with the headline, Shutdown slowdown? Job creation soars in October. Its true that 204,000 is a bit higher than the recent average of 190,000, but the storys very first paragraph belies the word soars. Read: There were a net 204,000 new jobs
American Thinker, by Selwyn Duke Posted By: SpeedMaster- Mon, 11 53 2013 09:53:57 GMT Many years ago I knew a couple who adopted the habit of being gratuitously defensive about one another. If you made even the slightest comment questioning one of them in the other´s presence, that party would say something such as "Watch it!" The admonition, however, would lack a certain conviction. Not long after they were divorced. Their earlier behavior then made sense: They couldn´t accept that their marriage was in trouble. And each spouse would react defensively to even obliquely negative feedback about the other not because he knew it was false, but because he feared it was true. It validated feelings
Hot Air, by Steve Eggleston Posted By: StormCnter- Mon, 11 52 2013 09:52:06 GMT Beaming electricity into homes without wires has been a dream since the days of Nikolai Tesla. The Daily Mail reports researchers at Duke University have made a breakthrough on the efficiency of turning otherwise'wasted radio waves into electricity: Engineers at Duke University have designed a breakthrough gadget that harvests background microwave radiation and converts it into electricity, with the same efficiency as solar panels. The development, unveiled on Thursday, raises exciting possibilities such as recharging a phone wirelessly and providing power to remote locations that cant access conventional electricity. And the researchers say that their inexpensive invention is remarkably versatile.
American Thinker, by Taleeb Starks Posted By: SpeedMaster- Mon, 11 48 2013 09:48:36 GMT Before committing the blasphemous and daring act of openly criticizing Dear Leader, it is obligatory that I first purify my spirit by reciting Dear Leader´s prayer. That way, the Black community doesn´t condemn my soul for placing critical thinking over Black solidarity. It´s common knowledge that Blacks who criticize Dear Leader are considered "sell'outs" while Whites are labeled "racists." Even the Congressional Black Carcass Caucus knows that Dear Leader is untouchable. Congresswoman Maxine Waters once confessed to a Detroit crowd:
