    Delaware mom is taking issue with Target's new ads for its Annie-inspired clothing line. According to Yahoo! Parenting, L'Sean Rinique Shelton was faced with some difficult questions after her 8-year-old biracial daughter saw an ad featuring a young white model wearing Annie's signature red dress. "She saw the ad and said to me, 'That's not what Annie looks like. How come the new black Annie isn't good enough? Does that mean I'm not good enough?'" Shelton told Yahoo! Parenting.

    The National Rifle Association has utterly defeated the "gun safety" movement, throttling it at the only moment in a decade when it seemed to have won back the public. It has gotten expanded gun-rights laws through Republican legislatures with the ease of LeBron James sinking a three-pointer. So as Charles Cooke reports, in a dispatch from the annual NRA conference, the organization has returned to its long status quo of psyching up members by embracing more of the GOP's culture war issues.

    Almost fifteen years ago now an ammo maker made claims about its super-lethal round -- the the Black Talon "Devastator" ammo -- and then the all the usual people who freak out about such things freaked out. Hollywood especially. They were bewitched by the Devastator for years. A major plot point in Lethal Weapon 3 concerned these Very Very Scary "cop-killer" rounds. If I understand it correctly (and I think I do), an armor piercing bullet has a very hard, non-deformable tip so that it can better penetrate armor. When a bullet deforms upon impact, it mushrooms into a bigger...

    It's not the first time we've heard fantastical news from North Korea's state news agency. And if you thought the "peculiar natural wonders" would be buried along with the Dear Leader, my were you mistaken. Today, the Korean Central News Agency said that archaeologists from the History Institute of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea "reconfirmed" the "lair of a unicorn" that was ridden by King Tongmyong. Via the Japan-based Korean News Agency, which distributes KCNA news, here's a bit more of the breaking development: "The lair is located 200 meters from the Yongmyong Temple in Moran Hill in Pyongyang...

    FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) - Oprah Winfrey meditated with more than 400 women in southeastern Iowa and also talked to students about her spiritual journey. Suzanne Stryker says she was among the women participating in the transcendental meditation Wednesday at the Maharishi School in Fairfield. She says no one in the meditation group knew the TV personality was going to be there until Winfrey, who heads the OWN television network, arrived with a film crew. The private Maharishi School specializes in "consciousness-based education" for kindergarten through 12th grade.

    Hyperinflationits have now blown it twice. First, they insisted hyperinflation would happen before deflation. They were wrong. Then, during the QE2 inspired equities and commodities ramp, they said the same thing. They were wrong again. Prior to the Great Financial Crisis I had a bet with "Heli-Ben", a staunch hyperinflationist who insisted we would hyperinflation before deflation. I won the bet but have not yet received my prize, a "crying towel" from "Heli-Ben". By any rational measure, and certainly by my definition, the US went into a period of deflation lasting at least a year. Deflation ended in March of...

    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C... Smoking marijuana affects peoples’ impulsivity, attention, memory, cognition and decision-making abilities. That’s been scientifically proven. Recent research from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center draws on the findings of previously published studies to further understanding about how marijuana affects the brains of chronic users, with specific focus on how the drug affects the decision-making process. These findings are important because they demonstrate a potential, negative side effect of chronic marijuana use. “Understanding how marijuana influences the perception of what is ‘negative’ may help explain continued marijuana use and aid in the development of effective strategies for treatment therapies,” said...

    The mark of any successful political venture by Governor Palin often results a misrepresentation of her words that only leaves the media with egg on their faces. Governor Palin’s bus tour has been successful in allowing her to highlight the greatness of the history of America, meet everyday Americans and fellow politicians, and share her policy stances on everything from fishing regulations in New Hampshire to ethanol subsidies to the debt ceiling. Such successes leaves the media grasping at proverbial bendy straws. Today’s news is no different.

    CNBC ^ | Feb. 1, 2011 | John Carney
    The reaction to last night’s decision by a federal district court in Florida striking down the Obamacare legislation reveals something surprising: liberals revere the Constitution more than conservatives. It is often said that conservatives revere the Constitution as if it were a holy writ, infallible and nearly divinely inspired. Conservative rhetoric often supports this interpretation: my old professor Harvey Mansfield used to advocate thinking of the founding fathers as demi-gods. In reality, however, it’s not the conservatives who revere the Constitutiion—it’s the liberals. They assign it an almost omniscient and omnipotent power: it is always on the side of the...

The scientist, Dr. Yoshihiko Takano of the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) in Tsukuba, Japan, made the discovery after a party, soaking samples of a potential superconductor in hot alcoholic drinks before testing them next day for superconductivity. The commercial alcoholic beverages, especially wine, were much more effective than either water or pure alcohol.

"I honestly don't know what that label means," Kagan told Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama . Sessions, the Senate Judiciary Committee's top Republican, kept pressing the former Harvard Law School dean, quoting her colleagues to make the point. Kagan wouldn't take the bait, though. "My politics would be, must be, have to be completely separate from my judging," said Kagan, who was...

    Most local school districts are not planning to broadcast President Barack Obama's speech to students Tuesday live in their classrooms. The typical approach is that of the Chester School District, which has opted to record the noon broadcast and make the recording available afterward to teachers who want to show it, rather than interrupt classes with a live showing. The Monroe-Woodbury School District is also recording the speech for potential viewing in kindergarten through eighth grade, while giving high school teachers the option of showing the speech live if it's pertinent to their courses. The White House has described the...
