    US ex-marine Steven Gern was fired from his job in Iraq and sent home after he uploaded a Facebook video supporting US President Donald Trump's temporary ban on citizens of seven countries entering the US. The ban was instituted to prevent potentially dangerous people from entering the country before there was an efficient way to vet them properly. Gern's video, which includes a description of what local Iraqis would do to any American they found, got 44 million views on Facebook. "So here I am, on my way out of here," Gern said in a YouTube video. "Obviously they didn't...

    A group of men standing around a desk: it is not the typical image that goes viral online. The photograph in question was taken on US President Donald Trump's first day in the Oval Office on Monday, when he signed a ban on federal money going to international groups that perform or provide information on abortions. "Men making decisions about women's bodies" was a much-repeated phrase on Twitter, as it was shared hundreds of thousands of times, including by author JK Rowling. The concern over lack of women at the table comes as Mr Trump's cabinet attracts attention for the...

    Royce Mann, an eighth grader from Atlanta, Ga., took the Internet by surprise with his poem called, “white boy privilege” that he wrote and recited at his school’s poetry slam contest in May.

He began the poem by saying how grateful he was to have been born a white male and said that he loved his “white boy privilege.” “Dear women, I’m sorry, dear black people, I’m sorry… Dear everyone who isn’t a middle or upper class white boy,...

Duane's lecture, which encourages people to exercise their Fifth Amendment right to remain silent, has been getting renewed attention in the wake of Netflix's "Making a Murderer" documentary, which covers the trial of Steven Avery, who was found guilty in 2007 of killing photographer Teresa Halbach.

By the end of the video, one dealership worker threatens to “put my foot in your ass” and another says he will call the delivery man’s manager and get him fired.

    10/24/2014 7:07:29 AM PDT · by tired&retired · 64 replies ^ | 10/14/2014 | Natali Anderson
    Chinese researchers have discovered what they say is the first ‘virological penicillin’ – MIR2911, a molecule found naturally in a Chinese herb called honeysuckle. Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) is a well-known Chinese herb. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it has been used to effectively treat influenza infection for centuries. Several previous studies have confirmed that the herb, usually consumed in the form of a tea, can suppress the replication of influenza virus. However, the active anti-viral components and the mechanism by which they block viral replication have remained unclear. Now, a team of researchers headed by Dr Chen-Yu Zhang of Nanjing University...

    Shortly after Israel's Operation Protective Edge in Gaza began 27 days ago, Hamas released a video clip of a song it produced that calls on Palestinian Arabs to carry out terror attacks. The clip is in Hebrew, however, and appears to mostly be intended for demoralizing Israelis. video Surprisingly, though, Israelis found the tune of “Attack! Carry Out Terror Strikes” extremely catchy. Making it even more fun was the flowery Hebrew, dotted with nonexistent words sung in a heavy Arab accent, all of which led to the song's becoming a summer hit. It has since spawned numerous covers and...

During a performance of "My Country 'Tis of Thee" by "American Idol" champion Kelly Clarkson, Clinton's head popped out from the crowd as he photobombed her. The internet instantly lit up with people passing the photo around and attaching their own jokes to it.

    Under pressure from farming advocates in rural communities, and following a report by The Daily Caller, the Obama administration withdrew a proposed rule Thursday that would have applied child labor laws to family farms.

The U.S. Department of Labor cited public outcry as the reason for withdrawing the rule. “The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the ‘parental exemption’ — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of...

    There is a perception lingering about NewtGingrich that he was a critic of PaulRyan's budget plan and therefore a critic of conservative fiscal policy in the House of Representatives. Is that conclusion true? Or is it an oversimplification? Like many misconceptions floating around during a heated political season, it is not true. Let's examine the facts. On April 5, 2011, Representative PaulRyan, the HouseBudgetCommittee chairman, introduced the Republican budget for 2012. Included in that budget was a premium support model for Medicare. This budget was based on a similar plan previously laid out by Ryan called TheRoadmapforAmerica'sFuture. That document had...

    Most bacterial infections can be treated with antibiotics such as penicillin, discovered decades ago. However, such drugs are useless against viral infections, including influenza, the common cold, and deadly hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola. Now, in a development that could transform how viral infections are treated, a team of researchers at MIT’s Lincoln Laboratory has designed a drug that can identify cells that have been infected by any type of virus, then kill those cells to terminate the infection. In a paper published July 27 in the journal PLoS One, the researchers tested their drug against 15 viruses, and found...

A newly uncovered "viral fossil" buried deep in the genome of the zebra finch indicates that the hepatitis B family of viruses—known as hepadnaviruses—originated at least 19 million years ago. Together with recent findings on other viruses, the work suggests that all viruses may be much older than thought. No one knows exactly where or when viruses originated.

    Life originated in a nebular cloud, over 10 billion years ago, but may have had multiple origins in multiple locations, including in galaxies older than the Milky Way. Multiple origins could account for the different domains of life: archae, bacteria, eukaryotes. The first steps toward life may have been achieved when self-replicating nano-particles initially comprised of a mixture of carbon, calcium, oxygen, hydrogen, phosphorus, sugars, and other elements and gasses were combined and radiated, forming a nucleus around which a lipid-like permeable membrane was established, and within which DNA-bases were laddered together with phosphates and sugars; a process which may...

    Previously I have highlighted the benefits vitamin D has with regard to improving the immune response and helping keep infections such as flu at bay. It has been mooted that the upsurge in viral infections during the winter is connected with the generally lower vitamin D levels at this time. The traditional view is that winter infections are due to “indoor crowding.”However, research indicates that flu epidemics do not occur in the summer in crowded workplaces despite the presence of the flu virus around people who should be susceptible to infection. This is based on research by the Centers for...

    ‘Anti-Obama’ Billboards Go ViralApril 5, 2010 - 1:19 PM | by: Elizabeth Prann If you have something to say – put it on a billboard. Atlanta commuters are noticing electronic billboards in metro Atlanta posting anti-Obama messages. The idea turns what is normally a staple of commercial advertising into a platform for political opinions - a bumper-sticker slogan aimed at a wider audience. The signs include: ‘Stop Obama’s Socialism.” “If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention.” “Now It’s Personal! America’s Coming for You Congress! Vote Liberals Out in 2010.” “Stop the Lies.” The billboard sponsors consists of about 12...

    A video of a Santa Cruz city council meeting has gone viral thanks to loopy testimony made by a local woman. In a speech reminiscent of Miss Teen South Carolina, the Santa Cruz City Council girl, as some have dubbed her, rambles on about the need for California to rebuild its economy through agriculture. Or at least that's what we think she's talking about. All we can really make out is that she thinks "food is good." Then things start getting weird when she brings up slavery. "We can be rich in cotton and mining metals and silkworms and we...

The report was based on "over 10,000 problematic Web sites, social networking groups, portals, blogs, chat rooms, videos and hate games on the Internet which promote racial violence, anti-semitism, homophobia, hate music and terrorism."
