  • The AI God’s New Eyes: How Your WiFi Can See You Throughout Your Home

    WiFi is electromagnetic waves in the 2.4 and 5 GHz ranges. It’s the same thing as the light you see, only it can penetrate walls due to its much longer wavelength. Just like light (and echolocation) these waves also reflect off various surfaces and, when reconstructed properly, can be used to create an image.

    Ron DeSantis may be missing his moment. A number of the Florida governor’s donors and allies are worried his recent stumbles suggest he may not be ready for a brutal fight against Donald Trump. Some feel DeSantis needs to accelerate his timeline to run for the GOP presidential nomination and begin directly confronting Trump if he's to have any chance of thwarting the former president’s momentum. Others believe DeSantis should sidestep Trump altogether and wait until 2028 to run. “They liked him — many of them might even support him,” the person who was at the event said of DeSantis....

    The United States Marine Corps disbanded its elite and historic scout sniper program as part of its extensive revamp to adapt infantry battalions to future warfare. The age-old MOS (Military Occupational Specialty) has been around since World War II, and one nonprofit organization representing the renowned Scout Snipers is calling the Corps move “misguided” and “ill-advised.” “We’re shocked and saddened that our Marine Corps leadership seems to have forgotten the lessons learned in combat, paid for with the blood of our members,” the USMC Scout Sniper Association wrote on Facebook. A memo from Deputy Commandant for Plans, Policy, and Operations...
  • Male birth control gel you rub on your SHOULDERS could be available within a decade as scientists claim trials have gone 'extremely well' - and it might be as good as the Pill!

    It's a burden that's fallen on women for decades. But a contraceptive that's targeted at men could hit shelves in less than a decade, according to one of the most eminent reproductive health experts who is leading the UK trials of the frontrunner. And rather than a pill, it is a gel — which has a similar consistency to hand sanitiser, dries quickly and is odourless — that men rub onto their shoulders, chest and upper arms once a day. Within weeks, user's sperm count plummets and — once levels are low enough — it can work as a couple's...
  • Joe and Hunter's Fang Fang Problem

    09/28/2022 8:29:33 PM PDT · by bitt · 2 replies ^ | 9/27/2022 | VICTORIA TAFT
    It was worse than we thought. It turns out that Hunter Biden’s drug enslavement, sex addiction, and penchant for Russkie hookers didn’t stop there. It was probably worse than his hinky “big guy” business deals, diamond “gifts,” and unearned Ukrainian paydays. There was a Chinese spy involved. Just like Democrat Eric Swalwell’s Fang Fang. Hold on, I’ve got to catch my breath. Be honest: You thought it would be that Putin inserted, so to speak, hookers who would double back and sting the first son. But those chickens haven’t come home to roost — at least as far as we...
  • New York Poised to Strengthen Oversight of Nonpublic Schools

    New York is poised to strengthen its oversight of private and religious schools following years of complaints that thousands of children are graduating from ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools lacking basic academic skills, including the ability to read English. A Board of Regents committee unanimously approved guidelines Monday to make sure instruction at the state’s private and religious schools is equivalent to that of its public schools. The rules would apply to all of New York’s 1,800 nonpublic schools but would have the greatest impact on the ultra-Orthodox schools, called yeshivas, some of which provide rigorous religious instruction but little or no...

  • Meta Suggests It May Close Facebook and Instagram In European Union

    Meta suggests it may have to shut down Facebook and Instagram in the European Union (EU) if it’s no longer able to transfer data across the Atlantic between Europe and the US. While the suggestion appears to just be posturing, some top politicians in Europe seem almost hilariously unphased by the proposition. Meta’s suggestion was quietly mentioned in the company’s annual report to the US Securities and Exchange Commission last week. The remarks regard new EU legalization currently being drawn up that would require data processing service providers to set up safeguards against illegal data transfers to non-EU governments. “If...

  • ‘Doctor Who’ Is Dead, But Perhaps Not For Long

    The Federalist ^ | December 10, 2021 | Peter Pischke
    The BBC and wokeness killed the much-loved sci-fi TV series. The writer who last revived ‘Doctor Who’ is likely the only one who can save it now. “Doctor Who” is dead. Ratings haven’t been this low since the moribund 1980s. Fan interest is zilch, with little engagement on social media. The show just finished its 13th series, and the few who watched could only yawn. The doctor is on life support thanks to the BBC’s incessant diversity mandates, executive producer Chris Chibnall retcons, and the lazy pomposity of the first female doctor, Jodie Whittaker. But there is hope. A familiar...

    Things are going horribly for Democrats. A legislative seat held for decades by Democrats in Iowa is no longer blue. Republicans flipped in red. In the “Trump-hostile” state of Connecticut, Republicans won back a state senate seat. This occurred in an affluent suburban where folks have been anti-Trump. Here’s a quick review of the history of this Iowa seat: “This district went (62/38) blue in 2012,” Townhall reports. “Then (51/38) in 2016.” “It shifted back to deeper blue territory in the Democratic wave year of 2018, only to become a three-point squeaker in 2020,” the report added. In yesterday’s special,...

    "Short version: Private enforcement of vaccination is being done through Texas HHS's ImmTrac2 vaccine database and the CDC's IZ Gateway. Sever this connection. Long Version Texas HHS tracks instate vaccinations for children at schools. When COVID broke out, the CDC established data connections with each state to track vaccinations. This is done by an electronic file feed between our database and the CDC. That electronic file feed is called the CDC IZ Gateway. Once the CDC has this data, they send it out to third parties, such as contractor ID.ME, and it is used for vaccine enforcement with private firms....

    Rep. Adam Schiff recalls Robert Mueller’s testimony during the Russian “collusion” inquiry as being “painful” in a new interview — dodging on whether cognitive decline should have disqualified the former FBI director from leading the investigation. In his new book and an interview this week, Schiff (D-Calif.) revealed he would not have wanted Mueller to testify if he knew how “painful” it was going to be, saying Congress had to stick to shorter questions for the beleaguered special counsel. “I did understand immediately why his staff had been so protective and why they were so reluctant to have him testify,”...
  • Rolling Stones RETIRE 'Brown Sugar' after criticism over slavery lyrics: Keith Richards says song is about 'horrors' of the trade but he's tired of fighting with people 'trying to bury it' and band will not play it anymore

    Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have announced the Rolling Stones will stop performing hit song Brown Sugar, amid discomfort about the 50-year-old classic's references to slavery. The band, currently on the road for a 13-date U.S. tour, have not played Brown Sugar - one of their most recognizable songs - since kicking off in St Louis on September 26. The 1969 song has been a staple of their live show since it came out 50 years ago, and is the second most played song in their catalog after Jumpin' Jack Flash, with 1,136 known performances, according to Rolling Stone magazine....

    It's a running joke that McDonald's soft serve machines are always broken — but now this issue is, apparently, being taken seriously By now, most people have become accustomed to the fact that the McFlurry machines at McDonald's are frequently out of order. There's even a "McBroken" map that can tell you whether your local McDonald's ice cream machine is working. But some McDonald's franchisees are tired of being the subject of social media roasts and they've taken the McFlurry problem into their own hands. According to a report in the Wall Street Journal published Wednesday, the United States Federal...

    One of America’s most influential pastors is facing a crisis. No, it’s not the crisis of personal scandal. It’s the crisis of church division—over race, ideology, and minutiae of church procedure. Putting aside the procedural arguments, that division is a microcosm of the racial conflicts that are dividing the larger American church and the nation itself. David Platt is a bestselling author, the former president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board, and the pastor of McLean Bible Church (MBC), a huge and influential church located outside Washington, D.C. Platt is facing a revolt from self-described “conservative” congregants, a...

    Adam Mendelsohn, a close adviser to Lakers star LeBron James, has released a follow-up statement after saying he was “exhausted” by the Me Too and Black Lives Matter movements. Over the July 4th weekend, the New York Times released a juicy inside ESPN story revealing that many of the network’s minority employees are unhappy with comments made by white commentator Rachel Nichols who is heard bashing the network’s efforts to impose more diversity on its on-air staff. In a telephone recording accidentally uploaded to ESPN’s computer system, Nichols revealed her displeasure that black reporter Maria Taylor got a plum T.V....
  • Tolkien Society Goes Woke, 'Finds' Transgenderism, 'Antiracism,' and Queer-ness in The Lord of The Rings

    This weekend, the Tolkien Society is hosting a virtual Summer Seminar, a short academic conference on a theme pertaining to scholarship about J.R.R. Tolkien, the British scholar and author of The Lord of the Rings. This year, most of the seminar has taken a clear turn for the “woke” — complete with multiple papers on LGBT themes and “anti-racism,” a movement inspired by Marxist critical race theory. The Tolkien Society invited academics and others to submit papers to present at the seminar, specifically encouraging the “theme of diversity” and representation. “While interest in the topic of diversity has steadily grown...
