    The left is panicking because black Americans are abandoning the Dem party. They want division back and some of their efforts are so over the top its laughable. However, it's designed to divide. "Together we stand" so they are frantically trying to create racial discord.Here's the Twitter link to the 3 minute Tucker Carlson video clip:'ll put two still images from the video below.
  • Opinion: People die as Donald Trump lets the pandemic rage [Kotze Warnung]

    US President Donald Trump’s world is small. And simple. He only acknowledges the facts that suit him. He gets rid of people whose opinions do not match his. He refuses to consider points contrary to his politics. Trump’s agenda is simple: give more to the people who already have plenty — and keep Christians on his side so that they vote for him again. […] Though many countries put stringent measures in place to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, Trump refused to take the pandemic seriously. It was as if he thought that he was still hosting a...

    "We've learned more due to research and additional scientific evidence and now we know [that] not only wearing a mask prevents the person wearing the mask to transmit to others, but wearing the mask protects the person who's wearing it," said Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. "So the wearer of the mask, even the standard rectangular surgical masks...will decrease the risk of infection by the person wearing the mask by about 65 percent."

    Police in New York are looking for the vandals who cut down a flagpole at a memorial honoring five firefighters who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks. The police chief of Washingtonville, a village north of New York City, told the Times-Herald Record that vandals used a tool to cut the flagpole about five feet from its base and then scrawled a message on the part left standing. Police discovered the damage early Wednesday and would not disclose the nature of the message.---

    Explanation: These silvery blue waves washing over a tree-lined horizon in the eastern French Alps are noctilucent clouds. From high in planet Earth's mesosphere, they reflect sunlight in this predawn skyscape taken on July 8. This summer, the night-shining clouds are not new to the northern high-latitudes. Comet NEOWISE is though. Also known as C/2020 F3, the comet was discovered in March by the Earth-orbiting Near Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) satellite. It's now emerging in morning twilight only just visible to the unaided eye from a clear location above the northeastern horizon.

    Olivia De Havilland, Late 2019 There are few veterans of Hollywood's Golden Age who are still around, much less still making headlines. But Olivia de Havilland, who turns 104 Wednesday (US time), was always a rule-breaker.She's part of the current furore over Gone With the Wind, since she is the only surviving star of the 1939 epic.In 2017, she also sued FX Networks over her depiction in the miniseries Feud: Bette and Joan, from exec producer Ryan Murphy. After a series of appeals, the court ultimately decided against de Havilland. The ruling represents a rare defeat for her, but serves...

  • Scientists Have Developed a Way to Make Human Skin More Protected from Space Radiation

    07/09/2020 7:07:14 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 11 replies
    NASA says that astronauts can be exposed to doses of radiation ranging from 50 to 2,000 Milli-Sieverts (mSv). Researchers already know that melanin has potential to protect astronauts from radiation. But there are different types of melanins. The one being tested on the ISS is actually a composite of fungal melanin and polymers. The lead researcher on that work is Radamés J.B. Cordero from Johns Hopkins. But this new research is going in a slightly different direction, by looking at melanin enriched with selenium. Selenium has an interesting relationship with light, and is used as a pigment, in glassmaking, in...

    The 3D rendering of the novel coronavirus — with its gray exterior and bright red spikes — has inspired incarnations as breads, cakes, burgers, beers and plushies around the world, a reaction that uses grim humor to help us cope with a horrible threat. But the products have received mixed reactions. Some people find them humorous, a source of levity during a bleak situation, while others have decried the practice, saying the products are tasteless and insensitive, considering the virus has already killed more than half a million people worldwide and 134,000 people in the United States. Alinea, the renowned...

Encased in the nose cone that will protect it during launch, the rover and the rest of the Mars 2020 spacecraft – the aeroshell, cruise stage, and descent stage – were affixed to a United Launch Alliance Atlas V booster on Tuesday, July 7, at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Central Florida. The process began when a 60-ton hoist on the roof of the Vertical Integration Facility at Space Launch Complex 41 lifted the nose cone,...

    You can come out, now, Roger! In his continuing role as the NFL’s Neville Chamberlain — the British prime minister who appeased Nazi Germany until it was too late to prevent World War II — Roger Goodell continues to pander to the bad acts at the risk of imperiling the good and welfare — and value — of the NFL. Goodell has proven he would rather offend the NFL’s most devoted, fair-minded fans than the league’s most offensive players.
