    Donny Deutsch might have set a vulgar new low in expressing contempt for supporters of President Trump. On today’s Morning Joe, Deutsch referred to a group of Trump supporters as “fluffers.” For those who might be unfamiliar with the term, “fluffer” is defined as “a person employed on a pornographic film set to ensure that male actors are kept aroused.” After uttering the slur, Deutsch, a sly smile on his face, added, “I just said that word, didn’t I? Well, just metaphorically, of course.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    South Korean President Moon Jae-in says he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take a "bold step" in their upcoming summit to formally ending the six-decade old war that split the two sides. President Moon made the declaration Wednesday during a ceremony in Seoul marking the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of the Korean peninsula from Japanese colonial rule. The two Koreas announced earlier this week that Moon and Kim will meet in Pyongyang sometime next month. The two leaders have already met twice this year, both times in Panmunjom, the truce village in the border zone that...

    On The Daily Show With Trevor Noah, Omarosa Manigault Newman made sure to tread lightly when speaking of recordings she made during the Trump campaign and her time at the White House regarding racial epithets, among other things. Omarosa has been very open recently talking about why she made the tapes, citing widespread corruption throughout the administration while promoting her new book, Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House. Besides promoting the book, Omarosa has also been releasing bits of her recordings, and in turn, Trump has been releasing tweets, calling her a “crazed, crying lowlife” and a...

    Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman addressed Gaza residents via the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Major General Kamil Abu Rokun's Facebook page via the Al Monaseq website. "I distinguish between Hamas leadership and the ordinary residents of Gaza," Liberman wrote. "Therefore, I decided to open the Kerem Shalom crossing and extend the fishing area back to 9 miles, as a clear message to Gaza's residents: Quiet pays off and violence doesn't pay off. The residents of Gaza have something to gain when Israeli citizens enjoy quiet and security, and something to lose when the peace is disturbed. "The people...

    Ilhan Omar, who once called Israel an “apartheid regime,” but who more recently came out against the boycott Israel movement, handily won the Democratic nomination in a Minneapolis-area congressional District. Omar, a Somali-born community activist and representative in the State House, is favored to win in November in the 5th District now held by Keith Ellison, who won the DFL primary for state attorney general. DFL is the state’s Democratic Party. There were primaries Tuesday in four states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Connecticut and Vermont. Omar’s tweets about Israel have earned her notoriety in the pro-Israel community. In 2012, she said...
  • The Gobekli Tepe Ruins and the Origins of Neolithic Religion

    Biblical Archaeology Review ^ | Thursday, August 9, 2018 | Biblical Archaeology Society Staff
    On a hill known as Göbekli Tepe ("Potbelly Hill") in southeastern Turkey, excavations led by Klaus Schmidt uncovered several large megalithic enclosures that date between 10,000 and 8000 B.C.E., the dawn of civilization and the Neolithic age. Each of these circular enclosures, which many have described as Turkey's "Stonehenge," consists of 10 to 12 massive stone pillars surrounding two larger monoliths positioned in the middle of the structure. There are no village remains at or near the Göbekli Tepe ruins, suggesting that the unique site was a ceremonial center exclusively used for the practice of the Neolithic religion of local...

    BEIJING — China’s leaders have sought to project confidence in the face of President Trump’s tariffs and trade threats. But as it becomes clear that a protracted trade war with the United States may be unavoidable, there are growing signs of unease inside the Communist political establishment. In recent days, officials from the Commerce Ministry, the police and other agencies have summoned exporters to ask about plans to lay off workers or shift supply chains to other countries.

    Phys.org ^ | Aug. 14, 2018 | Goldschmidt Conference
    Scientists have found a rapid way of producing magnesite, a mineral which stores carbon dioxide. If this can be developed to an industrial scale, it opens the door to removing CO2 from the atmosphere for long-term storage, thus countering the global warming effect of atmospheric CO2. This work is presented at the Goldschmidt conference in Boston. Project leader, Professor Ian Power (Trent University, Ontario, Canada) said: "Our work shows two things. Firstly, we have explained how and how fast magnesite forms naturally. This is a process which takes hundreds to thousands of years in nature at Earth's surface. The second...
