  • Men on strike: the social changes that caused men to opt out of marriage

    I often encounter “pro-marriage” people while gathering stories for the blog. These pro-marriage people come in two varieties. On the one end of the spectrum are people like Terrell Clemmons and Jennifer Roback Morse, who understand marriage, but who also understand the social changes that have made marriage unattractive for men. Both Clemmons and Morse have a background in STEM fields, so they are able to understand incentives and tradeoffs. They understand that society has to rollback the changes to education, divorce laws, etc. if they expect men to be interested in marriage again. They understand that men are not...

    The Deep State, the mysterious cabal consisting of intelligence personnel, sundry government officials, high-ranking military officers and politicians is not something out of a Robert Ludlum novel; but most distressingly, a living, breathing, monstrously evil entity out for blood. The Deep State, a body of traitors, to America, to the American people, to American history is determined to assassinate Donald Trump, as they did to a young President in 1963. But, this time the murder of the President won’t be done by triangulated 7.62mm fire. This time the Deep State weapons of war are not rifles and bullets, but a...
  • White House looking at ethics rule to weaken special investigation: sources

    The Trump administration is exploring whether it can use an obscure ethics rule to undermine the special counsel investigation into ties between President Donald Trump's campaign team and Russia, two people familiar with White House thinking said on Friday. Trump has said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's hiring of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead the investigation "hurts our country terribly." Within hours of Mueller's appointment on Wednesday, the White House began reviewing the Code of Federal Regulations, which restricts newly hired government lawyers from investigating their prior law firm’s clients for one year after...

    Social Capital and Mezvinsky have not released compensation information, but it’s unlikely Mezvinsky has accepted any job for less than six figures. After all, his wife makes that sitting in on a single board meeting for Expedia.

    JACKSON, Miss. –  A Mississippi teenager charged with murder in the death of a 6-year-old told investigators that the boy was actually shot by another of the three teen suspects, according to an investigator's sworn statement. The Associated Press obtained the sworn statement Friday from a source with knowledge of the case involving the death of Kingston Frazier. The boy was found shot to death at the side of a dead-end road inside his mother's abandoned car, hours after someone stole the Toyota Camry from a supermarket parking lot.

    More than a quarter-million people have put their names to a petition demanding ABC bring back the highly-rated conservative sitcom Last Man Standing. The fan-created Change.org petition titled “Save Tim Allen’s Show ‘Last Man Standing” has garnered more than 275,000 signatures in less than a week’s time. “Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms. It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values,” petition creator “Deputy Matt” wrote. “Last Man Standing is one of the...

    The common element in nearly all the major New York Times and Washington Post stories about President Donald Trump this week is that they are based on source documents the outlets cannot authenticate, do not possess, admit are partial, and refuse to share. .. These four stories, taken together, are said by the mainstream media to build a powerful case that Trump committed obstruction of justice and may soon face impeachment. But every piece of evidence could be made up or distorted, and there would be no way to know. In the “nut job” case, the White House has not...

    We're sorry in advance if we've just ruined your appetite. But, the rumors are true: There might be small amounts of beaver butt goo in some of our favorite gummy candies, ice creams, sodas and baked goods. Don't worry though, it's safe. For the past 80 years, we've been using the "brown slime" emitted from beavers as a way to add vanilla, strawberry and raspberry flavors to some of our favorite foods. How exactly does this work? Beavers emit the chemical compound castoreum from their castor sacs. The sacs are located under the animal's tail and are secreted when they...
  • 3 best TV episodes of all time?

    05/19/2017 6:42:04 PM PDT · by MNDude · 237 replies
    There are probably tens of thousands of TV episodes from the different decades. Most of them are probably pretty lousy looking back, but of course a few were rather stellar. The episode on Little House on the Prairie where Mary goes blind, nightmare at 20000 feet on the Twilight Zone, the episode with a huge battle on Game of Thrones, or the Pilot of The Wonder Years are examples of some great episodes. In your opinion, what are the three greatest TV episodes of all time?

    As other competitors test the Republican mayoral primary waters, the party’s best-funded candidate Paul Massey says he’s in it to win it. “I’m the competitor for the current mayor now, I think people understand that,” Massey said. Massey spoke at an independent Catholic school in Flatbush not run by the city — a week after having hip surgery, touring the building while wearing tapered maroon sweatpants, slip-on shoes, and with the help of a cane adorned with a silver-colored lion as the handle.

    Last week three suspected Ebola infections were detected in a remote region of the Congo. Since then, World Health Organization officials have been scrambling to contain the virus. Their efforts appear to have failed. The contagion continues to spread, and though it’s nowhere near the 11,000 people who were infected during the outbreak in 2014, the infection rate has spiked over 800% in just the last seven days, with at least nine new cases reported in the last 24 hours: The number of suspected cases of Ebola has risen to 29 from nine in less than a week in an...
  • Their Public Housing at the End of Its Life, Residents Ask: What Now? (Cairo, IL)

    Cairo, Ill., has a population of fewer than 3,000 people. A plan to demolish two public housing developments would force many residents to leave and cut the school enrollment in half. ___ The authorities announced last month that the cost of fixing the developments was out of reach, and that replacing them altogether would cost almost 10 times as much. For hundreds of residents, the decision may mean not only leaving these crumbling buildings, but also moving from Cairo altogether. “For sure they needed to fix this place up a long time ago,” said Nena Ellis, 38, a mother of...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden fares best among Democrats in a hypothetical matchup against President Trump in 2020, according to a survey from the Democratic firm Public Policy Polling out Tuesday. Biden edges Trump by 14 points in a head-to-head race, 54 percent to 40 percent, but he's far from being the only Democrat with an edge on the president heading into the next election.
