    Alvin Toffler, the far-seeing futurist who predicted humanity's rising anxiety with digital and technological progress in his hugely influential 1970 book "Future Shock," has died at the age of 87, his consulting company confirmed Wednesday. Toffler — who is also credited with having coined the term "information overload" to describe people's struggle to keep up with exponentially expanding data — died Monday night at his home in Los Angeles, Toffler Associates said in a statement it released at the request of Toffler's widow, Heidi Toffler. No cause of death was given. Alvin Toffler during a talk at the Astrobiology Roadmap...

    A classroom of 14 and 15-year-old Illinois high school students was assigned the task of deciding the fate of ten fictional characters in an exercise that critics called a lesson in death panels. The assignment was part of a sociology unit for freshmen and sophomore students at St. Joseph-Ogden High School in St. Joseph, just east of Champaign. The story was first reported by Champion News. The lesson involves 10 people who are in desperate need of kidney dialysis. “Unless they receive this procedure, they will die,” the lesson states. But there’s a problem. The local hospital only has enough...

    While U.S. presidents may very well be the most powerful individuals on earth, the operative phrase is “on earth,” but a string of incidents has developed in which Barack is credited with much, much more. The latest is an online video in which a young boy appears to be praying TO Obama. Not for him. Not about him. TO him. “Thank you for all the stuff that you helped us with. Thank you for taking the courage and all the responsibility for everything you have done for us. And God has gave you special powers and you are going to...

    The Obama Administration has launched its newest campaign to confiscate the minds of our children. To qualify for federal grant funds, Obama is requiring states to adopt a new program called Common Core State Standards In English. The program would wipe great works of literature from English curriculums across the country. And replace them with “information text”, such as “Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management”, an Order, of course, favorable to the Liberal environmentalist movement. Via Lucianne, Powerline reports, Controversy is brewing over new Common Core State Standards in English that call on public schools to...

    First Lady Michelle Obama has expanded her anti-obesity campaign to museums, enlisting them to offer “healthy food options,” and change their menus. Mrs. Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative is now calling for museums, zoos, gardens, science and technology centers to “join the call to action,” to decrease obesity among children. The first lady is recruiting these institutions to join the “Let’s Move! Museums and Gardens” project because of their power to “influence real and sustained behavior change” on the eating habits of kids. “With their impressive reach and great potential for impact, museums and gardens can launch community efforts to create...

    Much has been made over the recent developments in the United States and the growing dysfunctionality of its "representative" body, its looming insolvency and the progressive loss of credibility of its governing institutions. Though cast in the language of "Us versus Them", each side pointing the fingers at one another; this isn't about partisanship. The issue runs far deeper than the latest topic of the day, whether it be health care, the bank failures, the Republicans' spending splurge c. 2004-2008 or the Democrats' splurge c. 2006-now. Like most other nations on Earth, the United States has gone deeper into debt;...

    It is the communications, stupid! Carlos Slim is the world “fattest cat” with personal wealth of 53.5 billion dollars. He made the biggest chunk of his money in communication technologies business. Slim’s Telmex has the control of 90% of the Mexican land-line telephone market. He invested in communications, information technologies and media. It is not the evil oil companies that make the biggest profits. It is not the evil health insurance companies either. On top of most profitable industries are the Network and other communications equipment industry (20.4% profits as % of revenue –think Cisco) and the Internet Services...

"Could it happen here?". According to the press release accompanying the latest retelling of the events that followed, "Jones came up with an unusual answer. He decided to have a two week experiment in dictatorship. His idea was to explain fascism to his class through a game, nothing more. He never intended what resulted, where his class would be turned into a Fascist environment. Where students gave up their freedom...

    Al-qaida military chief killed, taliban confirms The military chief of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network was killed along with seven colleagues in a US bombing raid three days ago, a Taliban official has confirmed.

It was the first time a senior Taliban official has confirmed Friday's claim by US officials that Atef was killed in an airstrike outside Kabul. Atef's death is seen as a ...

    Last weekend I left my city of Portland and headed out to the nearly depopulated northeastern corner of Oregon, to the small town formerly known as "Halfway." The town recently changed its name and posted a sign on the outskirts -- "Welcome to Oregon: America's first dot-com city." Don't let the sign fool you. There's nothing dot-com about it, not really, not yet. In exchange for the name change -- a naked publicity stunt if there ever was one -- the company donated computers to the school and promotes the local microscopic tourism "industry" on its Web site....
