    Jessamyn Stanley is a yoga instructor and “body activist.” Jessamyn is making headlines for some reason after blaming white supremacy for polluting yoga. Seriously. This happened. PEOPLE reported: Jessamyn Stanley needs you to know what yoga is really about – and it’s not the poses. In her new book Yoke: My Yoga of Self-Acceptance, the yoga instructor and body activist shares reflective personal essays that touch upon everything from racism to the cultural appropriation of American yoga, from consumerism to cannabis. And while the timing couldn’t be better considering the current cultural climate, the idea for the book came to...

    Previously unseen video footage has been helping scientists learn more about the fate of the airship. One of the 20th Century's most infamous disasters, the destruction of the Hindenburg - a large German passenger airship - occurred following its arrival at Naval Air Station Lakehurst in Manchester Township, New Jersey in May 1937. The huge hydrogen-filled airship was carrying 97 passengers at the time, of which 37 lost their lives when the vessel inexplicably burst into flames and crashed to the ground, bringing with it any remaining confidence in airship travel in general. Although it is obvious that the gas...
  • Chris Christie swipes Nikki Haley for 'deferring' to Trump on potential 2024 run: Shows 'weakness, indecision'

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie threw some shade at former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley over remarks she made about whether or not she would run for president in 2024. Last month, Haley was asked if she would support former President Trump if he threw his hat in the ring, which she said "yes," but also made clear that she would not launch a GOP primary bid against him. "I would not run if President Trump ran and I would talk to him about it," Haley told the Associated Press. "That’s something that we will have a conversation about...

    Is Joe Biden following Paul Von Hindenburg’s path? Let’s see. Hindenburg, second President of Germany facilitated turning Germany from the most liberal Western republic that it was in late 1800s into a national-socialist dictatorship of 1930s and 40s that later transformed itself onto a monster responsible for genocide of unprecedented proportions.

    The fire killed his father, sister and 34 others. He was just 8 years old at the time. As the 80th anniversary approached in 2017, Doehner told The Associated Press that he and his parents, older brother and sister were all on the 804-foot-long (245-meter-long) zeppelin traveling to Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey. The airship departed on May 3, 1937. Doehner’s father headed to his cabin after using his movie camera to shoot some scenes of the station from the airship’s dining room. That was the last time Doehner saw him. Doehner and his family were on their...

    The disaster struck without the least warning. The ship had angled its blunt nose toward the mooring mast, the spider-like landing lines had been snaked down and the ground crew had grasped the ropes from the nose, when the explosion roared out, scattering ground crew and spectators like frightened sheep. The passengers, who were waving gayly a minute before from the observation windows, were so stunned they could not describe late what happened. Some jumped to the sandy landing field along with members of the crew. Others seemed to have been pitched from the careening skyliner as it made its...
  • Hydrogen cost could equal 50-cent gasoline, with renewable energy: study

    Hydrogen fuel-cell cars face an uphill battle toward mass adoption. Both cars and fueling infrastructure need to be made widely available before large numbers of consumers can seriously consider switching from gasoline to hydrogen. But under certain circumstances, hydrogen could prove very attractive to consumers for one simple reason. When produced using renewable energy, hydrogen could cost nearly the equivalent of 50-cent-per-gallon gasoline, according to a study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). That will only happen if "the stars align" and several factors work in hydrogen's favor, notes industry trade journal WardsAuto noted in a June report on...

    Gov. Chris Christie, who has long avoided wading into the immigration debate, said Thursday in Mexico City that he won't lay out his position on immigration reform unless he decides to run for president. "Until that time I have no role in the immigration debate, except for how it may affect the individual citizens of New Jersey, which I'll deal with as governor," the New Jersey Republican told reporters. "But I won't have anything to say on immigration unless and until I become a candidate for president of the United States," he continued. "If that happens, then I will articulate...

    Chris Christie is plunging into what amounts to a cross-country revival tour, looking to recover from a clumsy political scandal and reclaim his place as a promising Republican presidential prospect. In one recent week, it was on-the-ground politics in Tennessee and New Mexico. This week, after a campaign stop in Pennsylvania, the New Jersey governor returns to the late night comedy circuit with an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show." Then he'll stop by Mitt Romney's Utah summit, a private event for donors and GOP establishment leaders, and the week after that he heads to Washington to court Christian conservatives at...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie doesn’t relish the idea of campaigning against Jeb Bush in 2016. In fact, a presidential primary tussle with the former Florida governor would be “stressful,” Christie acknowledged Tuesday. “You like to run against people that you don’t like, not run against people that you do like and respect, so of course it would be stressful,” Christie said on New Jersey radio station 101.5′s “Ask the Governor” program. “I am close with the Bush family … [Jeb] has been a wonderful friend to me, especially during [superstorm] Sandy and the aftermath,” he added. When asked about...

  • Treasury Auction: 6 Months Bid/Cover Separating From 10yr and 30yr (Expecting Fed To Taper)

    The US Treasury auction went off better than last week’s 10 and 30 year auctions. ta36mth Particularly with regard to the bid/cover ratios. The 6 month bid/cover remains at 5.01 while the 10 year and 30 year are lower and at their 2nd lowest point since early 2009 when QE1 began. This is indicating that there are fears that The Fed will slow down the taper of $88 billion per month in Agency MBS and Treasury purchases. But at the long- and mid-section of the yield curve, not the short-end. Here is a chart of Expected Future Outcomes and Most...

    “Something will happen to the back of the Hindenburg,” said a letter to the German Embassy in May 1937, just before the huge dirigible burst into flames above the Lakehurst, New Jersey. The letter was eerily correct, but lacked specifics. Was it a bomb? A hydrogen leak? A thunderstorm? A spark? Saint Elmo’s Fire? Scientists and engineers from San Antonio’s very own Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) helped design, test and build Hindenburg 1/10 scale replicas to test each theory 75 years after the fact. A team of local engineers, scientists and historians teamed up with the Discovery Channel’s series “Curiosity”...

    The press corps has a mild buzz going about a weekend contretemps ginned up, for publicity's sake, by Sarah Palin's camp, in her ongoing campaign to show how badly she is victimized by the media. The odd thing is that she has been victimized by the media, horribly so, and many of us (myself included, in several posts after the Gabby Giffords shooting) have rushed to her defense -- so she doesn't need to gin up controversies out of thin air. But that's exactly what she and her team did this past weekend.

    Way too much attention paid to the Hindenburg Omen, that this dreaded technical pattern flashed a negative signal recently in the markets, indicating a coming crash. Supposedly two Omen signals flashed fire engine red recently. But market analysts say that didn’t happen. A 50-year old financial newsletter writer, James Miekka built the Hindenburg Omen in 1995 using a calculus essentially based on Norman G. Fosback's High Low Logic Index. It essentially looks at stocks trading at 52-week highs and lows, and more moving parts that must miraculously line up in syzygy for the Hindenburg Omen to be set alight and...

    One Possible Explanation For The Plunging Euro: Pension Accounting Change To Impact European Deficit Calculations There has been no explanation for this sudden weakness, although a reader proposes a very troubling explanation: As you might have heard 9 mainly EU-newbies sent a letter to the EC demanding to change the current system of account deficit calculation. They argue their pension reforms should be accounted for in the calculation. The letter was obtained by dpa-afx. Could be a reason for the dropping Euro. Of course, should this "reform" be enacted, Europe's deficits are likely to surge materially overnight, extinguishing any optimism...
