Cooper's sexual orientation has long been an open secret, but it took an Entertainment Weekly cover story about gay celebrities to prompt the newsman to finally come out. Daily Beast blogger Andrew Sullivan, another openly gay newsman, wrote to Cooper asking...

    ScienceNOW ^ | 1 November 2012 | Virginia Morell
    Credit: The Alex Foundation Alex, an African grey parrot who died 5 years ago and was known for his ability to use English words, also understood a great deal about numbers. In a new study in this month's Cognition, scientists show that Alex correctly inferred the relationship between cardinal and ordinal numbers, an ability that has not previously been found in any species other than humans. After learning the cardinal numbers—or exact values—of one to six, Alex was taught the ordinal values (the position of a number in a list) of seven and eight—that is, he learned that six...

  • How US Ambassador Chris Stevens May Have Been Linked To Jihadist Rebels In Syria

    REPORT: It Was A NATO Mortar That Killed 5 Turkish Civilians Last Week The official position is that the US has refused to allow heavy weapons into Syria. But there's growing evidence that U.S. agents—particularly murdered ambassador Chris Stevens—were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to jihadist Syrian rebels. In March 2011 Stevens became the official U.S. liaison to the al-Qaeda-linked Libyan opposition, working directly with Abdelhakim Belhadj of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group—a group that has now disbanded, with some fighters reportedly participating in the attack that took Stevens' life. In November 2011 The Telegraph reported...

    October 25, 732, Charles Martel beat back an invading Muslim army at the Battle of Tours, also known as the Battle of Poitiers. A Muslim army, in a crusading search for land and the end of Christianity, after the conquest of Syria, Egypt, and North Africa, began to invade Western Europe under the leadership of Abd-er Rahman, governor of Spain. Abd-er Rahman led an infantry of 60,000 to 400,000 soldiers across the Western Pyrenees and toward the Loire River, but they were met just outside the city of Tours by Charles Martel, known as the Hammer, and the Frankish Army....

    The emergence of wheat and milk allergies could be explained by a new account of the human race's 'out of Africa' expansion that began 60,000 years ago. The comprehensive review of humans' anthropological and genetic records gives the most up-to-date story of how the global migration had a dramatic effect on human genetic diversity.

    How US Ambassador Chris Stevens May Have Been Linked To Jihadist Rebels In Syria Michael Kelley | 46 minutes ago US Weapons Are Going To Hard-Line Jihadists Fighting To Topple The Syrian Regime The details of the September 11 attack that killed four Americans at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi are still murky and there's certainly more to be known. Former CIA officer Clare Lopez argues that the key issue is "the relationship of the U.S. government, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya with Al Qaeda." That relationship, Lopez argues, could be connected to the rise...

  • Rare rusty-spotted cat kittens born in Berlin

    Seriously. Look at this guy. It doesn’t get any better than that. Berlin Zoo has announced the birth of its first rusty-spotted cat kittens since it opened 168 years ago. Nicknamed ‘the hummingbirds of the cat family’, rusty spotted cats (Prionailurus rubiginosus) rival the black-footed cats (Felis nigripes) of southern Africa for the title of world’s smallest wild cat. Their long bodies and tails, which can reach a total of 78 cm in the largest males, might out-stretch their African relatives, but they’re just a little bit lighter at 0.9 – 1.6 kg. To put this in perspective, the world...

    A prominent member of Chicago’s homosexual community claims Barack Obama’s participation in the “gay” bar and bathhouse scene was so well known that many who were aware of his lifestyle were shocked when he ran for president and finally won the White House. “It was preposterous to the people I knew then to think Obama was going to keep his gay life secret,” said Kevin DuJan, who was a gossip columnist in Chicago for various blogs when Obama was living in the city as a community organizer and later a state senator. WND also spoke with a member of the...

    The noes clearly had it, but the party bosses gaveled the dissenters down, shutting off the microphones and ignoring cries of "Roll call! Roll call!" Yesterday, the Republican National Committee in Tampa adopted some rules changes that shift power from the state parties and the grassroots to the RNC and the GOP presidential nominee. Former Governor John Sununu of New Hampshire touted the new rules as providing “a strong governing framework” for the party over the next four years. But in fact the the new rules should be very troubling and disappointing to conservative grassroots activists, because they move the...

    It now appears the worst fears of the U.S. Constitution’s framers were well founded as investigators working on behalf of the ongoing investigation into the Constitutional eligibility of Barack Obama have found yet another lead in a growing mountain of evidence within the public records section of the British National Archives indicating the occurrence of at least four vital events registered to the name of Barack Obama, taking place in the British Protectorate of East Africa (Kenya) between 1953 and 1963, including the birth of two sons before 1963. The record of birth of a second son prior to Kenyan...

    Charlie Rangel, flanked by high-level Democrats, recently strutted up to the microphone declaring himself the winner against Hispanic opponent Adrian Espaillat in the race for New York’s 15th Congressional District. At least until his opponent discovered that polling places were illegally asking voters for ID, were turning away pro-Espaillat voters, and even were reporting zero votes to suppress the counts. What a shocker: Charlie Rangel was involved in massive voter fraud and intimidation. No one is surprised, really. Far-Left “Progressive” (i.e., socialist) Democrats have been involved in these tactics for years. Like Obama, Rangel was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists...
