  • Physicists detect a new type of molecular bond

    What’s unusual about this molecule is that the ion’s electric field distorts the atom in such a way that it causes the dipole’s orientation to flip at a particular distance. At shorter distances, the atom and the ion repel, while at larger distances, they attract. The distance at which this dipole flip occurs determines the bond length of the molecule. To make this molecule, the researchers prepared a cloud of rubidium-87 atoms at a temperature of just 20µK, since higher temperatures would risk the thermal energy of the atoms and ions overcoming the weak strength of the bond. The team...

    Former Lehigh County congressman Charles Dent and former Bucks County congressman Jim Greenwood, both Republicans, have endorsed Democratic state Attorney General Josh Shapiro in his campaign for governor over Republican nominee Doug Mastriano. “I’ve been a Republican my entire life, and I have always supported Pennsylvania’s Republican Governors – but in this election, I am proud to endorse Josh Shapiro,” Dent said in a statement released by Shapiro’s campaign. Josh has integrity and always works to bring people together. We may not always agree on every policy position, but that is to be expected. His focus on improving our economy,...

    PART I: THE PROBLEM The Great Reset was first concocted at the World Economic Forum in Davos by its founder Klaus Schwab as a way to assemble together global success stories like himself. His idea apparently was that grandees who have done well for themselves could do even better for the rest of us—if these anointed could just be unbound and given enough power and authority to craft rules for nearly eight billion of the planet’s ignorant. A word of caution is needed about the pretentious and supposedly benign signature title of the Great Reset project. Assume the worst when...
  • The Spectacle of Woke Feminists An army of privileged unhappy neurotic women - with an endless amount of spare time - try to bring meaning to their boring lives.

    Between the red-cloaked handmaids, topless women in nuns' habits, dead baby dolls, bloody pants, and half-naked green-breasted obese women, the protests are more like a nightmare of apocalyptic, zombie, nuns-ploitation films with scenes from Carrie, It's Alive, and The Walking Dead. Most of the privileged, bored women go home and share photos of their day dabbling in politics on social media. However, for some of the younger women, the protests are a type of gateway drug to the next level of activism. They join more militant feminist groups in which protest involves vandalism, arson and more. Jane’s Revenge is an...
  • Scientists Found Never-Before-Seen Crystals in Dust From The Chelyabinsk Meteorite

    In a new study, researchers analyzed some of the tiny fragments of space rock that were left behind after the meteor exploded, known as meteorite dust. Normally, meteors produce a small amount of dust as they burn up, but the tiny grains are lost to scientists because they are either too small to find, scattered by the wind, fall into water or are contaminated by the environment. However, after the Chelyabinsk meteor exploded, a massive plume of dust hung in the atmosphere for more than four days before eventually raining down on Earth's surface, according to NASA. And luckily, layers...

    A Twitter thread takes readers through the story of two parents in Famalicão, Portugal, who tried to keep their sons out of a Citizenship class that included “gender equality” lessons. The state went after them with a vengeance. It’s what many “educators” in America would probably like to do but, for the time being, haven’t yet tried. William Cacusso’s Twitter thread is here but it’s a little confusing. I’ll write it as a narrative instead. Two years ago, in the small town of Famalicão, two parents refused to let their boys, both the equivalent of straight A students in America,...

    Former President Donald Trump’s approval rating in January 2021, prior to leaving office, is exponentially higher than President Biden’s on nearly every key issue, June’s Harvard Caps Harris Poll revealed.The survey asked respondents to rate Biden’s performance on a range of key issues — from the economy to violence and crime in the country. On nearly every issue, with the exception of the Chinese coronavirus, Trump’s approval is significantly higher.According to the survey, just 32 percent approve of Biden’s handling of the economy. That is 24 percent less than the 56 percent who approved of Trump’s handling of the economy...

    Former President Trump says the potential for President Joe Biden to cut United States tariffs on China “would be the greatest gift that China could ever receive.”For months, as Breitbart News has reported, Biden, along with his top globalists, has suggested that they may soon cut billions of dollars worth of U.S. tariffs on China-made products that were first imposed by Trump.Most recently, reports have circulated that Biden is considering eliminating U.S. tariffs on $10 billion worth of China-made products like bicycles. This would come even as economists have admitted that cutting U.S. tariffs will have little-to-no impact on inflation.In...

    LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Pro-choice protesters blocked a July 4th Parade at the State Capitol Monday. The 4th of July parade in Downtown Lansing ended shortly after it started when pro-choice protesters blocked the parade from continuing. News 10 was on the scene when the parade began at 11 a.m. Protesters were there a half hour before at 10:30 a.m. The parade started at the left of the State Capitol building, but was stopped by protesters as soon as they turned to the front of the building. The organizer of the protest said that she did not intend for protesters...

    HOUSTON, July 5 (Reuters) - More than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of a historic U.S. emergency reserves release to lower domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month, according to data and sources, even as U.S. gasoline and diesel prices hit record highs. The export of crude and fuel is blunting the impact of the moves by U.S. President Joe Biden to lower record pump prices. Biden on Saturday renewed a call for gasoline suppliers to cut their prices, drawing criticism from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. About 1 million barrels per day...

    I’ve spent nearly three decades cultivating food habits that would make Miss Manners yartz up her crumpet. I dip my fries in enough ketchup to blanket the shores of Guam. I spit cherry seeds into my trash can with a ping. Just yesterday, I took a large bite out of a block of cheddar cheese, leaving the rest of the block in the fridge with a noticeable half-moon bite mark. But no behavior is quite as shameful as the Burrito Suck, my preferred method of bean extraction. At least, I thought it was shameful—until I realized I’m not alone in...

    A physician and preparedness advocate discusses ways to decrease your chances of becoming a victim. On July 4, 2022, parade spectators in Highland Park, Illinois were exposed to an active shooter. This time, it was a 120-pound, 22-year-old man who calls himself "Awake the rapper." Dressed in women's clothing, he fired more than 70 rounds into the crowd from a nearby rooftop. When the perpetrator was done, 7 were dead and 38 injured. The event caused a dozen nearby municipalities to cancel fireworks displays due to the tragedy and concerns about further shootings. Is there a way to increase the...

    PORTLAND, Maine — A group of pro-abortion rights protesters descended on the Eastern Prominade in Portland Monday prior to the city's July Fourth fireworks celebration in an effort to keep abortion rights on the mind, and to highlight what they believe is the loss of independence for women on Independence Day. “We have less rights than my mother," said protester Tracey Falla. "My daughter has less rights than her grandmother had. It's ridiculous. We are going backwards and it's not OK.” The protest was not organized by a specific group, but a grassroots network of advocates. Organizers say there is...

    One of the many assurances we are given by our corporate overlords and their minions in the liberal press is that we should be more like Europe. By that they mean we should accept a social welfare nanny state and surrender our rights to our betters in the elite. The Dutch don’t seem to have gotten that memo. About a week ago the government of the Netherlands announced it was declaring war on the nation’s farmers. In order to reduce what it considers nitrogen pollution the government has adopted a policy of drastically reducing herds, forcing many farmers out of...

    CNN attempted to fool Americans into believing the reason the U.S. economy isn’t officially considered in a recession is because eight “white economists” didn’t say so. Confusingly, CNN also wrote that if leading economists do end up declaring the U.S. to be in recession, it’s also because those economists aren’t racially sensitive. CNN senior markets reporter Nicole Goodkind published a story with an insane, racist headline that needs no explanation: “Who decides if the US is in a recession? Eight White economists you've never heard of.” What does race have to do with anything? Goodkind complained liberal economists like Moody’s...
