    Fans of the blockbuster movie series The Avengers can virtually hang out with six of the stars Tuesday if they contribute to Joe Bidens presidential campaign. But its an actor whos not attending whos getting most of the attention on Twitter and much of it is hate. Chris Pratt, known for his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy as well as Parks and Rec, was blasted on the social media platform by people who said his conspicuous absence was evidence of his secret support of President Donald Trump. From there, the conversation devolved into criticism of Pratts Christian faith...
  • Geologists 'resurrect' missing tectonic plate

    10/20/2020 9:33:20 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 10 replies ^ | 10/20/2020 | Sara Tubbs, University of Houston
    A team of geologists at the University of Houston College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics believes they have found the lost plate in northern Canada by using existing mantle tomography imagessimilar to a CT scan of the earth's interior. The findings, published in Geological Society of America Bulletin, could help geologists better predict volcanic hazards as well as mineral and hydrocarbon deposits. "Volcanoes form at plate boundaries, and the more plates you have, the more volcanoes you have," said Jonny Wu, assistant professor of geology in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. "Volcanoes also affect climate change. So, when...

    The town of Fermoy in County Cork has cut ties with its Polish twin, Nowa Dęba, over a motion opposing “LGBT ideology”. All six councillors in Fermoy voted to sever the town’s 14-year relationship with the eastern Polish town, which had included exchange visits and cultural events, said Councillor Noel McCarthy who proposed the vote. “We terminated because we felt that their local authority had discriminated against the LGBT community,” Mr. McCarthy said, referring to a motion passed by Nowa Dęba in 2019. […] Nowa Dęba’s 2019 resolution pledged to “defend our tradition, culture and religion against aggressive, deceptive and...

    Assuming that Joe Biden has been involved in money laundering and monetary gain from influence peddling, as well as treasonous activity in compromising his office with foreign powers, it stands to reason that the money involved has to go somewhere. Yes, this is true for his son, his brother, and others in the Biden crime family, too. But, where does Biden stash his take?
  • Eyewitnesses say Nigerian forces opened fire on protesters in Lagos

    Protests against police brutality in Lagos turned bloody on Tuesday despite a state-wide curfew, with eyewitnesses telling CNN that multiple demonstrators have been shot by soldiers. Demonstrators have taken part in daily protests across the country for nearly two weeks over widespread claims of kidnapping, harassment, and extortion by a police unit know as the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). Tuesday saw the state governor impose a 24-hour curfew and deploy anti-riot police to the city. One witness at the protests, Akinbosola Ogunsanya, said the shooting began after the lights were turned off at the Nigerian city's Lekki tollgate. "Members of...

    Hunter Biden is facing accusations that his laptop includes numerous suggestive images of underage girls, Rudy Giuliani announced on Newsmax TV Tuesday night. Rudy Giuliani also broke the news that a text message between Hunter and Joe indicates potentially nefarious activity, including Facetiming naked, between Hunter and an unnamed 14-year-old girl. Giuliani said he had turned over evidence to Delaware State Police for possible investigation. Giuliani has not revealed any of the images, even in a censored form, and Revolver has not been able to confirm their existence. A source close to the matter, though, who claims to have seen...
  • 500 on-the-spot fines for breaches of restrictions [Ireland; second COVID lockdown]

    People who breach the Governments COVID-19 restrictions can be issued with an on-the-spot fine of up to 500 under legislation to be passed in the coming days, the Cabinet has agreed. The legislation will pave the way for proportionate fines for those who hold house parties, travel beyond the five-kilometer limit or refuse to wear a face covering. However, this legislation will not be in place by midnight tomorrow when the new restrictions kick in. This means that the current penalty of 2,500 or up to six months in prison will apply for travel restriction breaches until the new law...

    When news broke last week that a man living in Hong Kong had been infected with the coronavirus again, months after recovering from a previous bout of COVID-19, immunologist Akiko Iwasaki had an unusual reaction. I was really kind of happy, she says. Its a nice textbook example of how the immune response should work. For Iwasaki, who has been studying immune responses to the SARS-CoV-2 virus at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, the case was encouraging because the second infection did not cause symptoms. This, she says, suggested that the mans immune system might have remembered its previous...

    I only say accused, because he hasn't been formerly charged or convicted of what is being revealed. However, who stands to benefit within the DNC if Biden is removed from running or soon after being elected, if he wins the election?

    The day the music really died. Miracle that so many people survived. Drummer Artemis Pyle and piano player Billy Powell were able to walk out of the woods to seek help despite severe injuries. Artemus Pyle actually had ribs sticking out of his chest. It must have been pure shock that allowed him to walk out of the woods. I was a sophomore in High School in Tacoma, WA when I heard this devastating news. Seemed like a bunch of good ol' boys. Interesting the Freebird was not a favorite among honky tonk patrons. It was written as a 3...

    After drugging a well-dressed River North nightclubs VIP host around closing time Sunday, two Milwaukee women led the nearly-incoherent man to their nearby car. But they had a big problem after they stripped him of his cellphones, watch, and credit cards: Their car wouldnt start, and they had a half-clothed, unresponsive man in the backseat. They roofied me at the club because I was wearing designer clothes and a gold Rolex watch, the alleged victim told CWBChicago in an interview Monday afternoon. He asked us to withhold his name. A source said another man was targeted similarly on Friday night....

To be blunt its the demographic of whos playing. Womens soccer players generally are cute little white girls while WNBA players, were all shapes and sizes: a lot of Black, gay, tall women. Theres maybe an intimidation factor and people are quick to judge it and put it down, Bird told CNN in an interview Sunday.

    Fed up with white people calling 911 about people of color selling water bottles, barbecuing or otherwise going about their lives, San Francisco leaders unanimously approved hate crime legislation giving the targets of those calls the ability to sue the caller. The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday on the Caution Against Racial and Exploitative Non-Emergencies Act, also known as the CAREN legislation. Its a nod to a popular meme using the name Karen to describe an entitled white woman whose actions stem from her privilege, such as using police to target people of color. All 11 supervisors signed on to...

    After orbiting the near-Earth asteroid Bennu for nearly two years, NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft successfully touched down and reached out its robotic arm to collect a sample from the asteroid's surface on Tuesday. That sample will be returned to Earth in 2023. To achieve this historic first for NASA, a van-size spacecraft had to briefly touch down its arm in a landing site called Nightingale. The site is the width of a few parking spaces. The arm reached out to collect a sample, which could be between 2 ounces and 2 kilograms. Then, the spacecraft backed away to safety.

    Chelsea Clinton says President Trump just can't get her mother out of his head. "He's obsessed with her!" the 40-year-old author and daughter of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton exclaimed in a Monday interview on the daytime talk show "The Real." "I mean, he talks about her all the time," Clinton said. "He talks about her in interviews. He talks about her in rallies. He tweets about her," she continued in response to a question from co-host Garcelle Beauvais about remarks Trump made earlier this month in a Fox Business interview about his former political opponent's use of a...
