    (CNN)A Russian river located by the Arctic town of Norilsk turned bright red Tuesday, looking more like an enormous blood vessel than a body of water. Stunned residents shared photos online of the bizarre scene at Daldykan River. Authorities are trying to determine why the river changed colors and are evaluating possible environmental damages.

    Trump posted a comment of the red star controversy a couple of hours ago on Twitter, so I guess the liberal media is pushing this nonsense for all it's worth. I've been doing armchair semiotical studies, researching insignia, signs, & symbols for over a day now, and could only find one match to the red star posted in a Trump tweet. And it's an exact match. It's the insignia of the U.S. Army 6th Infantry Division, especially in WWII.

    Seven years into Barack Obamas presidency, the scales may slowly be falling from the eyes of The New York Times. Could the truth about Americas red diaper baby President be starting to emerge? In a story about papers of his reported father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr., the Times said that President Obama has shown no interest in the newly discovered documents, which included nearly two dozen of his fathers letters, his transcripts from the University of Hawaii and Harvard University, and references from professors, advisers and supporters. The paper added, Nearly three years later, as Mr. Obama celebrates his last...

    The Red Rectangle, so named because of its bizarre shape and striking color, is a nebula a cosmic cloud of gas and particles. In this case, the nebula is formed by the central star, HD 44179, which is reaching the end of its life and shedding most of its mass into space. The source of the red light emitted by the Red Rectangle baffled scientists for more than 30 years. The same kind of red emission was seen throughout the Milky Way and in other galaxies, but scientists weren't sure what created it. The mystery was finally solved in...

    Starbucks started its holiday cup tradition in 1997--so “this year's design is another way Starbucks is inviting customers to create their own stories with a red cup that mimics a blank canvas.” It’s also worth noting previous Starbucks red cups lacked any outright Christian symbolism. Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks vice president of design and content, said in the release that in the past the holiday cups have told stories. This year, Starbucks “wanted to usher in the holidays with a purity of design that welcomes all of our stories," Fields wrote. He said that the coffee chain “has become a place...

    U.S. stocks traded about 1 percent lower on Monday, following a decline in European equities on the collapse of weekend talks between Greece and its creditors. "Right now the key driver in the U.S. and international markets seems the breakdown in the Greece negotiations," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities. The Dow Jones industrial average fell back into the red for 2015. The index traded about 160 points lower after earlier falling nearly 200 points, with United Technologies leading all blue chips lower.

    “А у вас негров линчуют” is a bitter Soviet-era punch line meaning, roughly, “But in your country they lynch Negroes.” There were a million Cold War variations on the joke: The Soviet farm minister meets his U.S. counterpart, who inquires about whether the heroic Soviet farmers are meeting their five-year plans. Asked about each crop in turn, the Soviet minister is forced to sheepishly admit that they are woefully behind on every goal, and then demands: “But what about the blacks in the South?” A U.S. car salesman asks a Soviet counterpart how many months the typical Soviet citizen must...

    THE new Congress that starts work this week is the latest reminder of Americas stark political divisions: The parties in Washington are more polarized than they have been in decades, the partisanship gap between rural Republicans and urban Democrats has grown, and the battle for suburban voters keeps intensifying. Much less is said, however, about the equally significant economic division between conservative red states and liberal blue states. Blue states, like California, New York and Illinois, whose economies turn on finance, trade and knowledge, are generally richer than red states. But red states, like Texas, Georgia and Utah, have done...

    Back in the Reagan days the Republicans were the BLUE Party; the Democrats were the RED Party. Somebody changed it after Reagan left politics; the switcharoo has been attributed to Tim Russert. At the time I didn't like it, but, judging from today's politics, it may have been a good move. The Democrats are acting like the typical blue-bloods of history. Those were the elitists who made their own laws and own law enforcement system. They, as an aristocracy, kept a safe distance between their own properties and lives and those of the common man. This is what we have...

    The unrestricted use of fossil fuels must end soon if the world is to avoid dangerous climate change. That is the central message of a stark new report from the UN-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The IPCC urges that by 2050, most of the world's electricity must - and can - be produced from low carbon sources. Fossil fuels, without carbon capture and storage (CCS), should be phased out "almost entirely" by 2100. It re-states many familiar positions: Warming is "unequivocal" and the human influence on climate is clear Since the 1950s the observed changes are unprecedented over decades...

    The two aerial strikes on Damascus in the past 48 hours, carried out by the Israel Air Force according to foreign media reports, are likely the result of classified intelligence indicating an imminent attempt to transfer strategic weapons from Syria to Hezbollah. With Hezbollah deploying up to half of its fighting force to Syria to help the regime of dictator Bashar Assad fight for its survival, the Lebanese Shiite organization will be seeking rewards for its actions. Hezbollah and its patron Iran may have asked Assad to make the advanced weapons available. It would seem that Assad cannot have been...

    You can tell a lot about prosperity in America by observing the places people are moving to and where they are packing up and moving from.

Among the 10 fastest-growing metro areas last year were Raleigh, Austin, Las Vegas, Orlando, Charlotte, Phoenix, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas. All of these are in low-tax, business-friendly red states. Blue-state areas such as Cleveland, Detroit, Buffalo, Providence and Rochester were among the biggest population losers. This migration...

Geifmans study of the Russian communist terror that prepared the 1917 revolution has enormous value for students of contemporary Islamist organizations. A common sociology links the Russian terrorists and the Islamists: Russias urban populace swelled from around 9 million people in the mid-19th century to about 25 million in 1913, with inhabitants of most major Russian cities increasing four- or five-fold, leading to a breakdown of social values. All of Europe experienced political upheaval associated with urbanization; but, Less...

    Racism is about many things but it isnt about race. To understand the uses of race in American liberalism requires understanding its place in the political culture. When American liberals speak of race they arent speaking in the genetic sense. What they are doing is clumsily piggybacking class onto race and adding one dubious construct to another. The placement of racial politics at the center of liberal advocacy coincided with a growing national prosperity that seemed to be on the way to making class warfare of the old kind irrelevant. Previous liberal civil rights activity had been a subset of...

A new study, published in the latest issue of the journal Emotion, finds that when humans see red, their reactions become both faster and more forceful. And people are unaware of the color's intensifying effect. The findings may have applications for sporting and other activities in which a brief burst of strength and speed is needed, such as weightlifting. But the authors caution that the color energy boost is likely short-lived. "Red enhances our physical reactions because it is seen...

    Long time Latino and Democratic Party activist Edwin Vargas, Jr. has announced a bid for the Hartford Connecticut mayoralty.

    RICHMOND - After two straight years of crushing electoral defeats, Virginia Democrats know they need to do something to start winning again - they're just not sure what. Some party leaders and activists say Democrats should keep the focus on the same policies, but also must do a better job of communicating. "I think the problem is the message is not getting out,'' said C. Richard Cranwell, the outgoing chairman of the Democratic Party of Virginia. "We've got to overcome the disconnect." Others say Democrats need to concentrate more on policies that Republicans have been advocating: creating jobs and cutting...
