    The Road to Rationalia Small brains, big problems — again Being an astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson is familiar with event horizons. He needs a refresher on epistemic horizons. An event horizon (the term is generally associated with black holes) is a boundary in spacetime surrounding a massive object exerting gravitational force so great that nothing that happens within the borders of the event horizon can ever affect anything outside of it. Which is to say, the escape velocity is equal to the speed of light, meaning that you could spend an eternity staring into it and never see what’s happening...

    U.S. first lady Michelle Obama on Thursday appealed to girls and young women in Spain to get involved in her global girls’ education initiative, saying it’s important girls are “valued for their minds.” Speaking to hundreds of young women at a conference in Madrid, Mrs. Obama spoke of the difficulties girls face trying getting a school education in many countries. She said she had come to Spain in the hope of inspiring women and girls here to help fight for change. Mrs. Obama arrived in Spain from Morocco on Wednesday. She had started the three-nation tour to promote the “Let...

    The University of Pittsburgh is now teaching people how to be “gender-inclusive” and “non-sexist,” informing readers that the concept of "correct" English is merely a social construct. The Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Program website has published a “Gender Inclusive and Non-Sexist Language Guide and Resources” guide, which includes advice for classrooms and other spaces. “Have you ever been called by a name or gender that you don’t identify with?” the guide begins, followed by declaring that, “[m]isgendering someone is disrespectful and dismissive.” Choosing words intentionally and with care is offered as a way to avoid misgendering and “creating a...

    Emory University history professor Carol Anderson condemned white elites and politicians, and Ronald Reagan in particular, for dismantling the progress of the black community. In Anderson’s book, White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide, she claims that many of the advancements made by the African American community during the civil rights movement were diminished during the Reagan Presidency, even arguing that Reagan’s policies demonstrated disdain for the black community despite the fact that he “positively oozed racial innocence” on the surface. Anderson also blames Reagan’s cuts to federal programs and workforces for the rise of black unemployment in...

    In 2012, Mathematician Ian Stewart came out with an excellent and deeply researched book titled "In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations That Changed the World." His book takes a look at the most pivotal equations of all time, and puts them in a human, rather than technical context. "Equations definitely can be dull, and they can seem complicated, but that’s because they are often presented in a dull and complicated way," Stewart told Business Insider. "I have an advantage over school math teachers: I'm not trying to show you how to do the sums yourself." ... Stewart continued that...

Anyway, the price of the next to the largest dipped cone is 25˘. Back then quarters were 90 percent silver. Today the melt value of the silver in one of those quarters will buy you the LARGEST dipped cone DQ sells ($3.29, Indiana) and you'll get change back. Current melt value of pre 1964 quarters is $3.32.

Research to be presented next week at a teratology conference in San Antonio, Texas, suggests that serious joint problems, seizures, vision impairment, trouble feeding and persistent crying can be added to the list of risks from Zika exposure in the womb. The new findings confirm doctors’ concerns that even when Zika-exposed babies are born without microcephaly and appear largely normal at birth they can go on to have health...

    Two professors at the University of Northern Colorado were investigated after students complained that they were forced to hear opposing viewpoints. One professor instructed his students to read an article from the Atlantic written by Foundation for Individual Rights in Education's president Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt titled "The Coddling of the American Mind." The article explains that allowing students to hide from controversial and upsetting ideas (like through the use of "safe spaces" or "trigger warnings") actually harms those students by not allowing them to confront those opinions. After reading the article, the professor asked his students...

On Father’s Day the Boston Globe, the major newspaper in New England, featured a lavish front-page article about a father who had “transitioned to a female”. There was an accompanying article by his son – a Boston Globe videographer – who describes that he is now accepting his father’s new “gender” after years of horrible anguish that even caused the son to change his last name. The articles are laden with sentiments of “tolerance” and “acceptance.” But they can’t avoid mentioning the years...

Last week, in the New York Times, scientist Adam Frank emphatically wrote that Yes, There Have Been Aliens, concluding that given all the potentially habitable worlds we know must be out there from our astrophysical discoveries, intelligent life must have arisen. What he fails to account for, however, is the magnitude of the unknowns that abiogenesis, evolution, long-term habitability and other factors bring into the equation. Although it’s true that there are an astronomical number of possibilities for intelligent, technologically advanced lifeforms,...

The Zika virus is spreading “rapidly” in Puerto Rico and now likely afflicts 2% of the island’s population with active infections, public health officials reported on Friday, based on tests of blood donors. At current infection rates, one-quarter of the island’s 3.5 million people will eventually acquire the mosquito-borne illness, U.S. CDC officials said. Current estimates are that 1% to 13% of babies born to women infected with Zika...

It's all his. He ignored the warnings. Along with the Democrats who voted for him.

    MENTOR, Ohio — A man dressed as a woman groped a teenage girl at the Mentor Public Library. Police are still looking for the man involved in the May 29 incident, Mentor police Lt. Dan Molnar said Friday. The girl was not physically harmed. Surveillance cameras captured the man entering the library in the 8200 block of Mentor Avenue at 11:30 a.m. dressed in a black dress, wig and high heels. The man struck up a conversation with the 14-year-old girl, police said. The two joked about the man's attire before he touched the teen inappropriately, according to police reports.

  • Ali funeral query: Don't Muslims have to be buried within 24 hours?

    Everything I have seen seems to indicate Muslims have to be buried within 24 hours of death. Ali's body is, if the news is correct, going to be paraded through the streets of Louisville. So: is there an exception for famous Muslims? Or, was Ali not a devout Muslim? Or, was he Muslim in name only?

    It appears that many people living in this country think of themselves as Democrats ahead of thinking of themselves as Americans. I think that we should declare the 3rd of July as a new holiday. We can call it Democrat Day. All those people who think of themselves as Democrats ahead of thinking of themselves as Americans, like Obama and Hillary and the VA bureaucrats and the State Department, can then celebrate on the 3rd of July. No more of this white male Independence Day for them. They could have lots of fun activities! They could go around and rob...

    Most people have no idea what goes on in the “gay straight alliance” (GSA) clubs in high schools (and now middle schools!) across America. Parents are told that these are simply “support” groups for youth. But in fact, it’s worse than anyone realizes. In our last post, we reported on the taxpayer-supported “Massachusetts Youth Pride” event, an annual gathering for middle school and high school “gay straight alliance” clubs from across the state. It was held on Saturday, May 21, 2016 at the Boston City Hall Plaza. We were able to see first-hand what they’re really teaching the middle school...
