  • Canada: After Keystone, We'd Rather Sell Oil to China(flashback)

    Solyndra is no longer the administration’s biggest energy blunder. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper appeared a think tank event held in Washington yesterday. Harper said Obama’s rejection of the controversial pipeline — even temporarily — stressed Canada’s need to find other buyers for oilsands crude. And that wouldn’t change even if the president’s mind did. “Look, the very fact that a ‘no’ could even be said underscores to our country that we must diversify our energy export markets,” Harper told Harman in front of a live audience Canada could make more money by creating a market for its oil rather...
  • If they come after the First Amendment will the ACLU do anything?

    FreeRepublic ^ | Jan 8 | RandFan
    If as rumored that Biden is going to go after the First Amendment with new "domestic terrorist" laws will the ACLU and the 'Left' do anything? Or will they cheer on a clamp down on conservatives even if it blatantly violates the Constitution as the USA PATRIOT Act did in 2001? I strongly suspect they will go after sites like FreeRepublic under any new laws. At the moment they can ban conservatives from social media but that doesn't take them offline. I might not be able to get the Parler app off the Google store but I can still visit...

    There’s nothing like a little Christmas miracle to inspire cheer after the chaos of 2020.On Dec. 21, people will have the opportunity to experience the same awe as the three wise men when they looked to the sky and saw the “Christmas Star,” or the “Star of Bethlehem,” shining brightly.In an event that has not occurred in almost 800 years, Jupiter and Saturn will appear to almost collide in a phenomenon scientists refer to as a “conjunction,” making them look like an incredibly bright “double planet,”according to a report from Forbes Media.Rice University astronomer Patrick Hartigan explained that lesser alignments...

    The Vaccine ^ | 07/13/20 | Rishma Parpia
    Senior White House officials reported that United States service members would be among the first Americans to receive a COVID-19 vaccine after it has been licensed. Officials said the groups likely to receive the vaccine first include the most vulnerable people such as the elderly, patients with underlying health conditions, employees in essential businesses and the U.S. military.​ Operation Warp Speed (OWS) under way at the federal level is a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and has a goal of delivering 300 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine by January 2021. Meeting that goal is part of a broader strategy...

    Observing the comings and goings in both Iowa and New Hampshire this month, New York Times columnist David Leonhardt is clearly fed up. The system is rigged, broken and (obviously)… racist. With all that in mind, the author vented his frustrations at the Gray Lady, declaring once and for all that Iowa should never go first again. Let’s let him explain his reasoning. Right now, I’m as obsessed as anyone with the early-state polls. Yet I also want to use this moment to point out how bizarre the current system is — and to make a plea: The 2020 cycle...

  • “The Hidden Kingdom” –Ancient Fossil Resets How Life First Arrived on Land from the Oceans

    Daily Galaxy ^ | 5/23/19
    Scientists have unearthed fossilized fungi in the remote Northwest Territories of the Canadian Arctic dating back to one billion years, in a discovery that could reshape our understanding of how life first arrived on land from the oceans. Fungi, the “Hidden Kingdom,” are not plants. Living things are organized for study into large, basic groups called kingdoms. Fungi were listed in the Plant Kingdom for many years. Then scientists learned that fungi show a closer relation to animals, but are unique and separate life forms. Most fungi build their cell walls out of chitin. This is the same material as...
