    CNN is holding a town-hall meeting on Thursday amid a turbulent two months at the cable news network, which is promising a new direction one month into the tenure of its new President Chris Licht. Licht and the leadership at CNN’s new corporate owner, WarnerBros Discovery, have signaled they’d like to make a shift in the company’s direction from former chief Jeff Zucker, who left his post amid controversy.

    In a viral video, a TikToker shares her frustration with her workplace culture after they repeatedly ask her to stay back when her shift ends. As a cashier, Julia (@jvliabee) says she’s had to deal with constant teasing from co-workers and her bosses about leaving “right on the dot.” “Why are bosses and even some other co-workers so offended when you try to leave on time?” Julia says in the video. “God forbid I work my scheduled work hours and leave on time.” She explains she’s baffled that her colleagues don’t seem to understand her life does not revolve around...
  • Bill Maher: School Attacker’s Advantage Is Not Gun Type But Time

    On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher made clear the Uvalde school attacker’s advantage was not the type of gun he used but the amount of time he had to use it. Maher said, “I mean, this kid was in the room for 40 minutes before anybody came in. It wouldn’t have mattered what kind of gun he had. Any kind of gun could do any amount of damage in that time.”
  • The Phoenix and the Cyclic Nature of Traditional Time

    I’ve always been fascinated by the imagery of the phoenix as it is found in various ancient mythologies. Though most typically associated with Greek mythology, the phoenix, under various names, could be found in mythological systems ranging from the Egyptian to the Chinese to the Arabian to the Armenian and beyond. The phoenix represents an older, Traditional way of looking at time, and therefore the world around us. This more Traditional view of time, as expressed across many different cultures for thousands of years, also found expression in conceptually related mythologies such as that of the ouroborus, the self-devouring worm...
  • Elon Musk and the Tech Bro Obsession With 'Free Speech' (barf alert)

    Time ^ | April 29, 2022 | Charlotte Alter
    ...But “free speech” in the 21st century means something very different than it did in the 18th, when the Founders enshrined it in the Constitution. The right to say what you want without being imprisoned is not the same as the right to broadcast disinformation to millions of people on a corporate platform. This nuance seems to be lost on some techno-wizards who see any restriction as the enemy of innovation. In a culture that places a premium on achieving the impossible, some tech titans may also see the liberal consensus on acceptable speech as yet another boundary to break....

    As Elon Musk attempts to purchase Twitter, many journalists and political commentators have viewed the Tesla CEO's plans to take over the social media giant as detrimental, and have slammed the idea of billionaire ownership, yet several liberal media organizations are themselves owned by billionaires. The Washington Post Amazon founder and billionaire Jeff Bezos purchased the Washington Post in 2016 for $250 million. The Atlantic Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Steve Jobs, became the majority owner of The Atlantic in 2017. TIME Marc Beinoff, the billionaire CEO of Salesforce, and his wife Lynne, purchased TIME in 2018 for $190...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation on Friday that aims to regulate how schools and businesses address race and gender, the state’s latest effort to restrict education about those topics. The law, which has become known as the “Stop WOKE Act,” prohibits workplace training or school instruction that teaches that individuals are “inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously”; that people are privileged or oppressed based on race, gender, or national origin; or that a person “bears personal responsibility for and must feel guilt, anguish, or other forms of psychological distress” over actions committed in the past by...
  • Senate approves Sunshine Protection Act to make daylight saving time permanent

    03/15/2022 3:25:46 PM PDT · by Libloather · 80 replies
    WASHINGTON - The Senate unanimously approved a measure Tuesday that would make daylight saving time permanent across the United States next year. The bipartisan bill, named the Sunshine Protection Act, would ensure Americans would no longer have to change their clocks twice a year. But the bill still needs approval from the House, and the signature of President Joe Biden, to become law. “No more switching clocks, more daylight hours to spend outside after school and after work, and more smiles - that is what we get with permanent Daylight Saving Time,” Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, the original cosponsor...

    Which states are trying to change daylight saving time? In the last four years, 18 states have enacted legislation or resolutions to keep residents on year-round daylight saving time, pending Congressional approval. In some cases, the legislation stipulates that neighboring states enact similar legislation. These states have already enacted legislation or resolutions to adhere to year-round daylight saving time: Alabama California (authorized by voters, not yet enacted) Delaware Florida Georgia Idaho Louisiana Maine Minnesota Mississippi Montana Ohio Oregon South Carolina Tennessee Utah Washington Wyoming This year alone, nearly 30 states are considering legislation regarding daylight saving time, according to the...

    At 2 a.m. local time on the second Sunday of March, clocks around the country will "spring forward" one hour to 3 a.m., marking the start of daylight saving time and the end of standard time. For decades, this shift has cost Americans a valuable hour of their weekend that they won't see again until clocks move back during the first Sunday of November. But an end to the tradition may be closer than ever before. According to USA Today, the federal government first enacted daylight saving to conserve coal during World War I in the spring of 1918. But...
  • Time crystals just got a little easier to make

    To make a space crystal, you need the immense pressures of the Earth’s surface bearing down on minerals and magma. But to make a time crystal, you need esoteric equations and ridiculously precise lasers. At least, that’s how physicists shaped the first self-standing time crystal in a lab last year. Now, they’ve turned into an even more tangible object by creating a time crystal from common elements that can withstand room temperature. If you’re wondering what a time crystal is (outside of pulp science fiction), most physicists also had the same question until pretty recently. It’s a form of matter...
  • BUNK: TIME’s Suggestion for U.S. Inflation Fight? ‘Tackle Climate Change’

    The eco doom-mongering TIME magazine virtue-signaled that the U.S. needs to fight climate change if it's serious about fighting inflation. Really. The rag published a bonkers Feb. 3 article headlined, “If the U.S. Wants to Fully Tackle Inflation, It Needs to Tackle Climate Change.” After blaming consumers in part for driving the worst inflation seen in nearly 40 years, along with supply shortages caused by the COVID-19 lockdowns, the magazine started babbling nonsense. “[B]eneath the headlines economists say that extreme weather events tied to climate change are also contributing to inflation. Across the world, climate-linked disasters have killed crops, disrupted...

    A weird thing happened right after the Nov. 3 election: nothing. The nation was braced for chaos. Liberal groups had vowed to take to the streets, planning hundreds of protests across the country. Right-wing militias were girding for battle. In a poll before Election Day, 75% of Americans voiced concern about violence. Instead, an eerie quiet descended. As President Trump refused to concede, the response was not mass action but crickets. When media organizations called the race for Joe Biden on Nov. 7, jubilation broke out instead, as people thronged cities across the U.S. to celebrate the democratic process that...
  • TIME Thread Contains Some of the Worst Fear Mongering in Answering COVID Question 'Can I Go Back to Normal'

    On Friday, TIME shared a thread on Twitter to do with "COVID Questions," sparking very little confidence that we can get back to normal when it comes to the Wuhan coronavirus. The person asking has been fully vaccinated, received their booster, and has had the virus. The lengthy thread from TIME is full of the most fear-mongering answers, despite how this person has done everything they could have done to protect themselves, from vaccines to natural immunity. The experts referenced in the piece do not appear to answer the question, based on the points made, such as how "there doesn’t...

    Elon Musk used his Twitter account like a battering ram to troll the left for their hypocritical pontificating about class warfare. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to Twitter Dec. 13 to express disgust at the world’s richest man being chosen as TIME magazine’s 2021 “Person of the Year.” Warren spewed, “Let’s change the rigged tax code so The Person of the Year will actually pay taxes and stop freeloading off everyone else.” Musk clapped back: “[I]f you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year.” Then Musk...

    If you want to become a billionaire—and you didn’t happen to be born into the Saudi royal family—there are a few ways to get the job done. You could come up with one seriously good idea, like a new computer operating system or social network, and then build it into a gigantic company. Or you could take the Warren Buffet route, making a decades-long series of shrewd, low–risk investments, and then watch the wealth slowly trickle in. And then there’s what Elon Musk did. Musk made his money differently than most of today’s famous billionaires. Instead of one amazing idea,...

    Time magazine revealed a controversial pick for its “athlete of the year” award on Thursday handing the crown to U.S. gymnast Simone Biles, not because she did well, but because she pulled out of events during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Biles had a relatively poor showing, winning only a silver and bronze medal in two events, compared to the handful of golds she won during the 2016 Olympics. However, Time did not laud her for winning the two lesser medals as much as it did for her decision to pull out of several events in 2020 for her “mental health.”...

    Blame Americans! TIME magazine chose to blame the everyman to protect President Joe Biden from his disastrous economic policies and the supply chain shortages hampering the U.S. economy. The liberal magazine was blunt in its absurd condescension in a story headlined, “How American Shoppers Broke the Supply Chain.” The story bleated how “America has long been gobbling up more goods from overseas than we send back, but in the past year, spending has gone bonkers.” The smear piece even had a subsection headlined, “Our buying habits are hurting the U.S. economy.” Of course, TIME mentioned nothing about how Biden and...

    While Brits enjoy an extra hour in bed this weekend, royal staff have spent hours turning back the 1,500 timepieces inside Her Majesty’s official residences. The clock change, which falls on the last Sunday of October, means that at 2am yesterday the time in the UK went back to 1am as Greenwich Mean Time replaced British Summer Time. Reminding Brits of the clock change, the Royal Family offered an insight into the numerous timepieces inside Windsor Castle, Berkshire, where Her Majesty is currently recovering after a stay in hospital, on their official Instagram page. A team of horological conservators worked...
