    Billions of light years away, there is a giant ball of hot gas that is brighter than hundreds of billions of suns. It is hard to imagine something so bright. So what is it? Astronomers are not really sure, but they have a couple theories. They think it may be a very rare type of supernova — called a magnetar — but one so powerful that it pushes the energy limits of physics, or in other words, the most powerful supernova ever seen as of today. This object is so luminous that astronomers are having a really difficult time finding...

    The fatal shooting of rapper Half Ounce has ignited a familiar conversation about gun violence, rap culture and whether there’s a responsibility for record labels to protect their artists. The 32-year-old rapper, whose real name was Latauriisha O’Brien, was killed in Los Angeles’ Koreatown neighborhood Monday, just weeks after rapper PnB Rock was fatally shot during a robbery in the same city. These rappers are part of a string of artists who have died by gun violence, with at least one rapper being fatally shot every year since 2018. With other high-profile rappers such as Drakeo the Ruler, who was...

    Last week, as Palestinian psychopaths murdered three more innocent Israeli civilians in Tel Aviv in an escalating campaign of terror, activist students at two American universities voted on repulsive resolutions to urge their respective universities to divest from companies doing business with Israel. On April 5th, the undergraduate student government at Ohio State University passed what it categorized as an “emergency resolution,” asking the university to divest from Hewlett Packard and Caterpillar, Inc., and claiming that “by investing in such companies, The Ohio State University implicitly condones and profits from the decisions and actions of these companies, and, as...
  • Ohio Republicans Are Gaming The System To Push Through Gerrymandered Districts

    03/26/2022 5:45:50 AM PDT · by cotton1706 · 25 replies ^ | 3/25/22 | Matt Shuham
    A bipartisan majority on the Ohio Supreme Court has rejected Republican-drawn maps for U.S. congressional districts and state legislative districts a combined four times this year, handing Republicans rejection after rejection on the grounds that their proposed maps are illegally slanted in their own favor. And yet, Republicans may end up on top anyway, thanks to a combination of stalling tactics and tricky legal maneuvers. Early voting in the state’s primaries begins April 5. And amid ongoing legal uncertainty over the maps, Republican legislative leaders in the state, who are also key members of the state’s GOP-dominated redistricting commission, have...

    Remember stories like this from the 1990s (or for that matter from 1980 about Reagan, age 69 at the time)? Remember all the stories like this last year about 77-year-old Joe Biden? Me neither. Mark Perry has struck again, finding that Ohio State University—I mean, THE Ohio State University—has a diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI, but really “DIE” if you arrange the letters accurately) staff of 132, with an average salary of $77,000 and total estimated payroll cost of $13.4 million, which would cover in-state tuition for 1,120 students. Here are the first 34 officers—notice not only the salary levels...

    The Las Vegas Raiders waived 2020 first-round pick Damon Arnette and have now cut ties with both first-round picks from that draft before the midpoint of their second season. General manager Mike Mayock called it a “painful decision” to release Arnette on Monday but said it was necessary in response to a social media post with Arnette brandishing a gun and threatening to kill someone. Arnette was drafted 19th overall with a pick acquired in the Khalil Mack trade despite what Mayock called “significant concerns” about his character. Arnette was rated lower on most draft rankings but the Raiders believed...
  • Rush-members speechless at Ohio State marching band tribute to group

    Surviving Rush members said they were "speechless" after seeing a video of the Ohio State University Marching Band performing the music of the influential Canadian prog-rockers over the weekend. The Buckeyes' tribute happened at halftime on Saturday (Oct. 9) during their home game against the Maryland Terrapins in Columbus, Ohio. The marching band added extra drums in honor of the late Neil Peart, the Rush drummer who died last year. The percussion section used 20 more toms and 20 more cymbals than usual, with the percussion players at the front of the group, per Ohio State News. The Buckeyes played...

    A specially extended lineup of the Ohio State Marching Band covered a selection of Rush classics during their half-time show on Saturday. Designed as a tribute to late drummer Neil Peart, the 14-minute performance featured arrangements of “The Spirit of Radio,” “Fly by Night” and “Tom Sawyer,” among others. The show can be seen below. “To honor the early 2020 passing of one of the greatest drummers in history, Rush’s Neil Peart, the Ohio State Marching Band added a little more percussion to the mix for the halftime show Saturday,” the university said in a statement. “To help recreate Peart’s...

    In the first upset of the men’s NCAA Tournament, the evangelical Oral Roberts University beat second-seeded Ohio State University in overtime by a final of 75-72 on Friday. ORU’s leading scorer, forward Kevin Obanor, thanked Jesus after the win. “I’m thankful to Jesus Christ for putting us in this position,” Obanor said, according to Fox 23. “We want it very bad. It’s bigger than us, just to leave a legacy behind for ORU. I’m just very eternally grateful and I just can’t wait to play tomorrow.” Oral Roberts guard and the NCAA's leading scorer Max Abmas tallied 29 points, while...

    Ohio State football proved it belonged, and will now attempt to show it stands alone. The Buckeyes entered Friday’s Sugar Bowl against Clemson in search of a championship identity it had not yet seen on the field in 2020. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney questioned whether Ohio State should be allowed in the College Football Playoff after playing only six games. What had the obviously talented Buckeyes actually shown? Ohio State, and the rest of college football, now have evidence of that elusive, theoretical peak performance. Justin Fields played with explosive efficiency that, with a few notable exceptions, has been the...

    A professor at Ohio State opted to take “anti-racist learning” after writing an article talking about his love of college football. OSUniversity professor Matthew Mayhew wrote an article for Inside Higher Ed touting the virtues of college football... Mayhew, a Higher Education professor at OSU, insisted that America’s universities should get back to “essentializing college football.” “Essentializing college football might help get us through these uncharacteristically difficult times of great isolation, division, and uncertainty. Indeed, college football holds a special bipartisan place in the American heart,” Mayhew wrote. “At a time when colleges and universities have been placed under extreme...

    Stone fluted points dating back some 8,000 to 7,000 years ago, were discovered on archaeological sites in Manayzah, Yemen and Ad-Dahariz, Oman. Spearheads and arrowheads were found among these distinctive and technologically advanced projectile points. Until now, the prehistoric technique of fluting had been uncovered only on 13,000 to 10,000-year-old Native American sites. According to a study led by an international team of archaeologists from the CNRS (1), Inrap, Ohio State University and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, the difference in age and geographic location implies there is no connection between the populations who made...
  • ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomena,’ Better Known as UFOs, Deserve Scientific Investigation (Scientific American)

    UFOs have been back in the news because of videos initially leaked, and later confirmed, by the U.S. Navy and officially released by Pentagon that purportedly show "unidentified aerial phenomena" (UAP) in our skies. Speculations about their nature have run the gamut from mundane objects like birds or balloons to visitors from outer space. It’s difficult, if not impossible, to say what these actually are, however, without context. What happened before and after these video snippets? Were there any simultaneous observations from other instruments, or sightings by pilots? Judging the nature of these objects (and these seem to be “objects,”...
  • Drezner: You all need to adjust to the fact that UFOs exist

    You can add another voice from the media and education community to the growing list of military and government figures who are now talking about the potential realities of UFOs, no matter where they’re actually coming from. Daniel Drezner, a writer for the Washington Post, as well as a professor at Tufts University, tosses another log on the fire this week with a provocative proclamation. According to Drezner, we’ve hit the point where everyone needs to get used to the idea that we have things flitting around in our airspace that we can’t yet explain. He then dangles the bait...

    UFOs are not the same thing as extraterrestrial life. But we should start thinking about that possibility. Footage from 2004 shows an encounter between a U.S. fighter jet and "anomalous aerial vehicles," which is military jargon for UFOs. Former intelligence officer Luis Elizondo arranged the release of the video before leaving the Department of Defense in Sept. 2017

    The city council of Columbus, Ohio, is considering legislation to screen police officers for any connection to “hate groups” (including secretly harboring the beliefs of “hate groups”), citing the ever-so-reliable Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). Former SPLC employees have confessed to taking part in a hate-for-pay scheme, exaggerating the number of “hate groups” in order to bilk donors, and the SPLC faces numerous defamation lawsuits regarding that “hate group” accusation. Even so, a city council member told PJ Media that the council will define “hate group” in such a manner as to include organizations accused by the SPLC, and to...

    Another U.S. professor "with strong ties to China" has been arrested and charged with allegedly lying about his ties to the communist country. Song Guo Zheng, who the Justice Department described as a "rheumatology professor and researcher," allegedly used more than $4.1 million in federal research funding to help advance China's capabilities with regard to rheumatology and immunology. The Justice Department alleges he then failed to disclose to the U.S. government that he held employment in China while conducting U.S. taxpayer-funded research as a researcher at multiple universities in the U.S., including Ohio State University.
