    Adva Biton, the mother of Hilda Adelle, who was murdered in a stone-throwing attack in Samaria, gave birth Sunday to a seventh child. Following the birth, Biton wrote, "By the grace of God, thanks to Rabbi Meir Baal Haness, I gave birth to our seventh daughter on the same date of her sister, Adele, of blessed memory! A mixture of emotions! Only happy occasions!" Adelle was the family's fourth child. After her injury, Adva Biton gave birth to the family's first boy in 2014, and to another son in 2016. The new baby is Adelle's first younger sister. In 2013,...

    Control mobility – free movement – and you have controlled the population. Their other rights are automatically cheapened into functional irrelevance if the right to come and go without permission and free from interference is denied.And so it has been.It took a couple of generations, but most Americans seem to implicitly accept the idea that travel  – even on foot – is a conditional privilege conferred (and legitimately regulated) by “the government.” Which of course is just an evasive euphemism for the busybodies and control freaks who have somehow acquired a legal monopoly on the use of force –...

    A Texas woman was taken off life support Monday, against her family's wishes, after the hospital invoked a law allowing it to deny further care. But a pro-life group stepped in and helped her "escape" to a place that was willing to provide care. She is now in stable condition.

    “Babies aren’t human.” Who could resist an abortion pitch as winning as that?“The combination of scientific ignorance and *literal* dehumanization on display here is really something,” Seth Mandel marvels about the clip below, which involves Christine Quinn restating basic, basic left-wing orthodoxy on this subject. It’s so basic, in fact, that I came away wondering how CNN arrived at this segment. The news hook is the “heartbeat bills” being signed into law in red states but it feels like the sort of thing a network booker might resort to on a particularly slow news day, news hook or not....

    Hermitage is one the largest and oldest museum in Europe. It’s located in St. Petersburg. Was founded in 1700s by Russian Queen. With all those years it was growing in size adding more and more nearby historical buildings to its complex. Even the famous Tsar’s Winter Palace – which was stormed during 1917 revolution is now also a part of a Hermitage. It has vast underground complexes beneath it and those are inhabited by numerous cats. Russian blogger Commandante went there and took photos of cat inhabitans.  Cats are fully legal residents of this space. They have medicaments, food...

    One evening Slava, Russian man, was getting back home thru the cold city streets. Suddenly he spotted a little ball of wool on the sidewalk. It wasn’t moving and it wasn’t clear what it was at all. Slava still decided to stop and check if it’s a live being or not.“Something was telling me that this can be a little animal that needs help”, says Slava. When he approached it he discovered this was a frozen kitten. At first it got afraid of the man, but it wasn’t capable of running away.“I covered it in a blanket and took with myself”,...

    It takes 1 trillion times the age of the universe for a xenon-124 sample to shrink by half For the first time, researchers have directly observed an exotic type of radioactive decay called two-neutrino double electron capture.The decay, seen in xenon-124 atoms, happens so sparingly that it would take 18 sextillion years (18 followed by 21 zeros) for a sample of xenon-124 to shrink by half, making the decay extremely difficult to detect. The long-anticipated observation of two-neutrino double electron capture, reported in the April 25 Nature, lays the groundwork for researchers to glimpse a yet unseen, even rarer version...

    Posted on March 22, 2019 by team Yesterday an employee of the mininig and processing plant in Karelia miraculously survived in the accident where seemingly he didn’t have a single chance. His Ford was severely smashed by a huge dump truck. The man thought the driver of the truck noticed him and it was too late when he realized he was wrong. When the truck smashed the car, the man had his legs cramped, and he was really happy when he felt he still could move them. Finally X-Ray showed not a sinle bone was broken! The weight of the dump truck...

    A Look at the Short-Lived 3-Inch Compact Floppy Disk Posted on February 25, 2019 by Blake Patterson I was recently listening to the latest episode of Retro Computing Roundtable podcast during which there was mention of a 3-inch floppy disk. No, not 3.5-inch, but 3-inch. These disks are known as Compact Floppy Disks (also “CF2”) and were used in a number of systems outside the US, including some models of Amstrad, Tatung, and MSX machines. And, while the Sony-engineered 3.5-inch disks that those of us who don’t think that they are 3D-printed takes on the “save icon” know well are...

    Editor's note: This column was co-authored by Arkansas State Rep. Joe Cloud, M.D.Life. It’s a common word, one we throw around casually in everyday conversation without giving it much thought. At the same time, it’s a word that conveys deep meaning, and a certain reverence and honor surrounds the four letters. It’s so significant that our Founding Fathers included it in the second sentence of the Declaration of Independence as the first unalienable right of mankind. Yet in recent years, we’ve seen the social climate change so drastically that we now find ourselves debating whether babies born alive after botched...

     Soldiers heading towards Omaha Beach.When I was in grade school the teachers spoke of the Constitution with reverence.  As second graders, we listened as the teacher told the story of how it was written and the freedoms it guaranteed us and the responsibilities that it demanded of us.  My grade school teachers were all married women, and they loved America.  It was a small town, and the teachers had grown up in the area.  Some of them had taught their own children and their own grandchildren in the same school where the chalkboard dust, lead paint dust, water from...

New research shows they were thriving in their final days. Help EarthSky keep going! Please donate what you can to our annual crowd-funding campaign.Dinosaurs once reigned on Earth, until a cataclysmic event – now thought to have been a massive asteroid impact, or possibly intense volcanic activity – wiped them out about 66 million years ago during the Maastrichtian age at the end the Late Cretaceous epoch. This mass extinction event was sudden and brutal, powerful enough to...

    Do you know your place? In these days of hysterical Wokesterism, the question would surely provoke a riot of cowbell-clanging Antifa cadres, fainting spells in the congressional black caucus, and gravely equivocal op-eds from David Brooks of The New York Times. Yet it’s a central, unacknowledged quandary of our time that so many Americans have no place and suffer terribly from it. Human beings need a place in the social order, in the economic order, and in actual geography in order to function optimally in a life fraught with the normal challenges and difficulties that reality presents. Let’s take these places in...

He explained his motivation for writing the book. “I wrote it because I felt the literature so far had been either ra-ra fanatically pro-Trump without a lot of analysis, or had been just Trump Derangement Syndrome stuff. I felt that people who had voted for him and expected that he would govern...

    Gatter: '$50’s on the low end, $50 [per specimen] was like 12 years ago'! The costs of baby organs increased dramatically in the last ten years, a Planned Parenthood executive said in video released by the Center for Medical Progress on Wednesday. In 2014, undercover videographers posing as organ procurers captured Planned Parenthood executive Dr. Mary Gatter discussing the cost of "specimens" obtained following abortion. When the pro-life activists mention $50 as the going rate for each specimen, Gatter informs them that costs have jumped over the last decade. "You know, you have to pay a little money to use...

    Two wealthy Ecuadorian brothers, Roberto and William Isaías, who were owners of companies fined and ordered to shut down for illegally trafficking world-wide in aborted baby parts purchased from Planned Parenthood, were arrested by ICE on February 13, 2019. [snip] Roberto and William Isaias, who fled Ecuador to avoid 8-year prison sentences, were principals in California companies DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, and the two career criminals were allowed to stay in the United States by Hillary Clinton’s State Department under “suspicious circumstances” after they donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign fund.
