    --snip-- BANGKOK (AP) - A survey released Tuesday -- the first comprehensive one of its kind - says that only 10 killers of 908 environmental activists slain around the world over the past decade have been convicted. The report by the London-based Global Witness, a group that seeks to shed light on the links between environmental exploitation and human rights abuses, says murders of those protecting land rights and the environment have soared dramatically.

    Here’s your history lesson of the day, and it’s a duzy. Do you all remember the department store chain Montgomery Ward? It was in the same class as JC Penney and Sears, and like Penney’s and Sears had a robust catalog business in the 20th century. The catalog ended in 1985 and the stores closed in 2000. The incident we are going to talk about happened during World War 2, in 1944. When I read this it initially put my jaw on the floor, but when I thought about it for a moment, I realized that it put all...

So is that true? Its pretty close. Texas really is gigantic. Redditor Armeleon put together a map that gives you a good idea of the massive size of Texas.

    Parents across the country may hold the key to this years mid-term elections as they vent their anger over the implementation of a controversial education achievement measure called the Common Core State Standards Initiative. Forty-five states and the District of Columbia have adopted the initiative in a bid, they say, to improve education standards in Math and English, and give new life to what many view as a sagging education system. Indiana recently voted to back out of Common Core. But many parents see the initiative as a bid by the federal government to take over the education system. They...

    Wyoming has spent $7.9 million on sage grouse conservation since 2005. That was the finding of a new report by the Western Governors Association, which inventoried the efforts of 11 western states to protect the bird and its habitat. The report comes in advance of an expected 2015 ruling by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over whether to add the species to the endangered species list. The sage grouse's listing could curtail energy development throughout the West. ... Utah, by comparison, spent $8.8 million on improvements to sage grouse habitat in 2013 alone.

    If the United States wants to avoid falling like the Roman Empire, it must avoid overconsumption and distribute resources equally, according to a study funded by NASA. The fall of the Roman Empire, and the equally (if not more) advanced Han, Mauryan, and Gupta Empires, as well as so many advanced Mesopotamian Empires, are all testimony to the fact that advanced, sophisticated, complex, and creative civilizations can be both fragile and impermanent, reads the NASA-funded report published in the Ecological Economics journal. Two important features seem to appear across societies that have collapsed, the study adds. The stretching of resources...

    Obama is not a dictator, but there is a danger in his aggregation of executive power. Recently, a bizarre scene unfolded on the floor of the House of Representatives that would have shocked the framers of the Constitution. In his State of the Union address, President Obama announced that he had decided to go it alone in areas where Congress refused to act to his satisfaction. In a system of shared powers, one would expect an outcry or at least stony silence when a president promised to circumvent the legislative branch. Instead, many senators and representatives erupted in rapturous applause;...

"Where Congress isnt acting, Ill act on my own to put opportunity within reach for anyone whos willing to work for it," the president said. Obama pointed to a recent trip to North Carolina to announce the formation of a new public-private manufacturing institute as evidence of how he could act alone to spur economic activity. "Its a partnership between companies, colleges, and the federal government focused on making sure American businesses and American...

    Beginning his address, the Holy Father reiterated his imagery of Baptism as an unbroken chain in the transmission of faith. Each baptized Christian, he said, is a link in that chain. Such is the grace of God and so is our faith, that we should transmit to our children, because they, as adults, can transmit it to their children, the Pope said. Baptism makes us enter into this People of God that transmits the faith. This is very important. A People of God that walks and transmits faith. Continuing his catechesis on the Sacrament of Baptism, Pope Francis reminded the...

    Attacks on the Affordable Care Act have stepped up over the last week or so. You'd think that the healthcare reform known as Obamacare is leading to the wholesale loss of affordable insurance by huge sectors of the American public, many of whom will be impoverished by being forced into low-quality health plans at exorbitant prices. You'd think the entire reform is on "life support," as the usually judicious National Journal put it today, speculating that Democrats may soon start calling for its repeal. Don't buy the hype. The numbers tell an entirely different story. What they also demonstrate is...

And the author savors the fact that Obama is deliberately undoing what historians have called the age of Reagan. For all the political and economic uncertainties about health reform, at least one thing seems clear: The bill that President Obama signed on Tuesday is the federal governments biggest attack on economic inequality since inequality began rising more than three decades ago. Over most of that...

    At first blush, it seems crazy. The perpetually destitute Los Angeles Unified School District will spend $30 million to purchase thousands of iPad tablets to give away to students at 47 LAUSD campuses. At second blush, it seems crazier. This purchase all but commits the nation's second largest school district to hundreds of million of dollars of additional spending with Apple over the next two years. That's right, two years, hundreds of millions. At third blush, it seems like a rip-off. The LAUSD will pay $678 per iPad, even though you can belly up to the Genius Bar at the...

    President Barack Obama will attempt to kick-start a global climate agenda on Tuesday with proposals including a plan to limit carbon emissions from existing U.S. power plants that is sure to face opposition from the coal industry, many business groups and Republican lawmakers. None of the president's proposals, including plans to reduce emissions from heavy duty trucks after 2018, require congressional approval. The White House plan includes measures to tackle HFCs as well as emissions from methane, another potent greenhouse gas.

    Yup. His daddy was a communist. His mommy was a communist. His mentor was a communist. He admitted in his book before running for the presidency that he himself was a Marxist. And that may be part of the misunderstanding and confusion. It may be that many people do not understand what a Marxist is. "Marxist" is just a fancy word for a communist. And Obama is a self-admitted, constitution-hating, spread-the-wealth-around Marxist/communist. And no one can deny that. It's a self-evident, self-admitted fact. And he wants to transform America. Transform it to what? Transform it from a free country to...

    The Guardian has done it once again, this time presenting two July 2009 documents signed by none other than Eric Holder which lay out under what conditions the NSA is allowed to make use of information "inadvertently" collected from domestic US communications without a warrant. The documents detail the procedures the NSA is required to follow to target "non-US persons" under its foreign intelligence powers and what the agency does to minimize data collected on US citizens and residents in the course of that surveillance. "The documents show that even under authorities governing the collection of foreign intelligence from foreign...

    With the revelations of another new and potentially serious scandal, Obama's presidency becomes more Grant than Lincoln each day. I mean Ulysses S. Grant's scandal-plagued presidency, which was replete with clumsy denials, regretful dismissals, base enticements and desperate political ploys. The shocking scandals of the mid-1870s from the Whiskey Ring's tax evasion and bribery of administrative officials to secretary of War William Belknap and his wife's patronage kickbacks consumed Grant's second term. Avoiding this kind of diminished legacy means that Obama must do what Grant could not. He needs to face the seriousness of the allegations which stretch...

    A Republican congressman says pursuing the impeachment of President Obama for his mishandling of the response to the terror attack at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, is still an option, and he vows to continue digging at the lies of highest magnitude from the White House.....
