  • Astronomers Just Found a Star Orbiting a Black Hole at 1 Percent the Speed of Light

    Science Alert ^ | March 15, 2017 | Mike McRae
    Astronomers have just spotted a star whizzing around a vast black hole at about 2.5 times the distance between Earth and the Moon, and it takes only half an hour to complete one orbit. To put that into perspective, it takes roughly 28 days for our Moon to do a single lap around our relatively tiny planet at speeds of 3,683 kilometres (2,288 miles) per hour, meaning this star is moving at some mind-boggling, break-neck speeds.

    A disgraced former reporter was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Friday for several bomb threats to Jewish Community Centers, Jewish schools and Jewish museums around the country. Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis by the FBI for making at least eight bomb threats and the cyberstalking of an ex-girlfriend. Thompson was a former reporter for The Intercept, and was fired after it was discovered that he made up sources and stories, including one about Charleston shooter Dylann Roof. The criminal complaint states that threats made to the Jewish establishments across the country by Thompson were under...

    POLITICISING HATE CRIME Wrong to blame Trump for racial killing It is tragic that an Indian engineer was shot dead in the US in what appears to be a racial hate crime. The killer (a Navy veteran) shouted, "Get out of my country", before he shot the victim and injured another Indian. American laws are strong enough to deal with such incidents and one must hope that the murderer will be punished sooner than later. It would be wrong, however, to generalise that hate crimes against Indians, or non-whites, are becoming part of the American DNA. Let us not forget...

    The Chicago Police Department conducted a series of overnight raids from Thursday into Friday that resulted in 81 arrests, mostly for drug- and weapons-related offenses, Supt. Eddie Johnson said Friday. The raids, focused on the city's South and West Side neighborhoods, were "focused on the underlying source of crime in these areas: the sale of narcotics," Johnson said at a press conference Friday afternoon. Of the 81 people arrested, Johnson said 61 are previously convicted felons, 49 are documented gang members, 19 have previously been arrested on gun charges, 14 are currently on parole, and 65 have been previously identified...

    A 69-year-old Queens woman suckerpunched in a random attack outside a deli last year has died. Eve Gentillon never recovered from the brain injury she suffered when she was attacked back on October 15. Upgraded charges are now expected against her accused attacker. It happened on Sutphin Boulevard near 108th Avenue in Jamaica. A man who police identify as Richard Springer came out of the deli and punched her in the head. Gentillon hit her head on the ground and had to have a piece of her skull removed due to a brain injury. Springer is also accused of assaulting...

"Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers," notes the site for the campaign. "A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly."

    Waitress Kelly Carter said a couple had written on the receipt: "Great service don't tip black people." Owner Tommy Tellez told BBC News the response has been "phenomenal". People have been dropping by the restaurant to give Ms Carter cash, Mr Tellez said, and a YouCaring campaign has raised over $300 (Ł245) for her. Her regular customers have been dropping by to give her hugs. Tipping is customary in the US, where restaurant servers often earn less than the minimum wage, with tips supposed to make up the difference in pay. The white couple who left the note appeared to...

Trump's 12 days from moving into the White House. We turn the pages quickly on the stories of life, anxious not to get left behind. But the real people, people whose lives only fascinated us for an instant, whose stories grabbed us for a moment, good and bad - they are still living their story, their nightmare.

    After the shocking results of the 2016 election, most analysts focused on the shift among working-class whites towards Donald Trump. However, there was another seismic transformation on election day that may have longer repercussions: young black men are leaving the Democratic Party like never before. Exit polls of the nationwide House races showed two important numbers, black men and millennials voted for the GOP in numbers that hadn’t been seen in decades. According to CNN exit polls, 18 percent voted of black men for a Republican candidate for the U.S. House, which is more than three times the number of...

    Brown and Lewis praised the president-elect after the meeting at Trump Tower. They said they primarily spoke to Trump about Brown's Amer-I-Can philanthropy, which aims to keep kids away from gang violence. "We couldn't have had a better meeting," Brown said. "The graciousness, the intelligence, the reception we got was fantastic." Former "Apprentice" star Omarosa Manigault and Cleveland Pastor Darrell Scott, two of Trump's most prominent black supporters, sat in on the meeting. Scott told reporters that the president-elect gave a "verbal commitment" to merge Brown's program with the Trump administration. Throughout the campaign's closing stretch, Trump make direct appeals...

It was late October, Friday the 21st, and the president had spent many of the previous weeks, as he would spend the two subsequent weeks, campaigning for the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. Things were looking up. Polls in the crucial states of Virginia and Pennsylvania showed Clinton with solid advantages. The formidable GOP strongholds of Georgia and Texas were said to be under threat. The moment seemed to buoy Obama. He...

    After the last Presidential deabte, WGN 9 News invited Brunell Donald-Kyei, a Chicago based lawyer who happens to be a black female who supports Donald Trump, on air to talk about her preferred candidate. Obviously looking to try and play their typical media games of discrediting Trump supporters, specifically those of us who are black, the WGN 9 anchors were left speechless after they discovered that they had bitten off far more than they could chew. In short, Brunell Donald-Kyei absolutely owned the interview, and the anchors, delivering an incredibly passionate and commonsense argument for her support of Trump. Check...

    As the reality of President-elect Donald Trump settled in very early Wednesday morning, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes summed up an explanation common to many on the left: The Republican nominee pulled ahead thanks to old-fashioned American racism. But the attempt to make Trump’s victory about racism appears to be at odds with what actually happened on Election Day. Consider the following facts. Twenty-nine percent of Latinos voted for Trump, per exit polls. Remarkably, despite the near-ubiquitous narrative that Trump would have deep problems with this demographic given his comments and position on immigration, this was a higher percentage of those who...

The group of experts, which includes leading human rights lawyers from around the world, presented its findings to the United Nations Human Rights Council on Monday, pointing to the continuing link between present injustices and the dark chapters of American history.

    A small circular piggybank stands on display in Washington DC, featuring a drawing of a grand neoclassical edifice, much like the ones that march up and down the city’s National Mall, where America’s cultural and historical booty is housed. Except this building was to be different. “The National Negro Memorial,” reads the title above the drawing – a plan for a monument where “the achievements of the Negro may be placed before the world”.

    Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. Presidents of leftist colleges across the nation are creating segregated dorms for blacks students in response to the Black Lives Matter mafia. You can’t make this stuff up. In 1964, Democrats fought tooth and nail to preserve segregation.  Racist southern Democrat Dixiecrats like Alabama Governor George Wallace refused to follow the Supreme Court’s Brown vs. Board of Education decision, the law, and even resorted to sanctioning police brutality against blacks to keep his state “separate and unequal.” It’s more than curious that California State University of Los Angeles...

    Ordinarily, it is not a good idea to base how you vote on just one issue. But if black lives really matter, as they should matter like all other lives, then it is hard to see any racial issue that matters as much as education. The government could double the amount of money it spends on food stamps or triple the amount it spends on housing subsidies, and it will mean very little if the next generation of young blacks goes out into the world as adults without a decent education. Many things that are supposed to help blacks actually...
