Where Radar Cameras Fear To Tread
Post Date: 2017-04-20 06:03:47 by Deckard
Arizonans aren't big fans of being nagged about the weight of their feet on their accelerators.A few years ago, county officials set up a mobile radar speed sign along the road to my old house. It looked lonely out there amid the tumbleweeds with only coyotes and rattlesnakes for company. Sure enough, within a day, I was treated to the sight of sheriff's deputies and county workers clustered sadly around the device, which hadapparently in despair over its isolated conditionleapt head-first into an arroyo. State residents were also unhappy when speed cameras sprouted along the roads with ticket books attached. In 2008, Arizona officials signed a deal with Redflex, an ...
In Trump Era, Many Political Activists Follow Their Leader, Not Their Principles
Post Date: 2017-04-20 05:56:41 by Deckard
The reward centers of the brain light up when partisans reject information that contradicts their political preferences, the same way drug addicts' brains do. Politics is a team sport, so it has always required a certain flexibility on matters of principle. But two recent studies suggest that, for many Americans, only one principle really matters: following the leader.And the Trump administration is proving it in spades. An idealized account of how we reach our political loyalties might look something like this: First, we study the issues, weighing the facts and the applicable ethical standardsliberty, justice, equality, fairness, etc. Having thought long and hard, we then reach ...
Toyota Rolls Out Hydrogen Semi Ahead Of Tesla's Electric Truck
Post Date: 2017-04-20 04:00:45 by Operation 40
Toyota's "Project Portal" is the first zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell semi truck, which goes into operation at the Port of Los Angeles later this year. A battle for the future of clean trucks is breaking out. A week after Elon Musk said an electric Tesla semi is coming, Toyota sped ahead of him in its own exhaust-free truck: a hydrogen-powered 18-wheeler created to haul cargo at the Port of Los Angeles. The carmakers truck, dubbed Project Portal," fulfills a promise Toyota made in November to scale up the fuel cell system used in its Mirai sedan for a semi as part of a feasibility study. The Class 8 truck Toyota created using a Kenworth chassis, ...
Trump Has Killed "Beautiful Babies" in Four Countries
Post Date: 2017-04-19 21:44:26 by Deckard
US president Donald Trump sounded sincere when he described how he felt after seeing pictures of "beautiful little babies" allegedly killed by a Syrian government chemical weapons attack on April 4. These heinous actions by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated," said Trump, and hours later, the US launched nearly 60 tomahawk missiles in response to the allegations. But what about the beautiful little babies killed by US bombs since Trump became president? Is Trump not concerned about those children because they were killed by his missiles, and not Assads chemical weapons? In the first three months of his presidency, Trump has dropped bombs and killed ...
Major League Baseball's War on PEDs Is Still Petty and Pointless
Post Date: 2017-04-19 21:35:36 by Deckard
With players rolling in NSAIDs and amphetamines, why do androgens still freak people out? Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Starling Marte was suspended Tuesday after testing positive for the testosterone derivative Nandrolone, an androgenic compound that increases lean body mass and strength, decreases fat mass, and expedites soft tissue repair. Prolonged use also causes left ventricular hypertrophy and high blood pressure, but it's the first set of effects that'll cause Marte to miss 80 games and render him ineligible for postseason play in the event the Pirates make it that far without him. Over at Yahoo!, MLB columnist Jeff Passan argues that Marte's suspension means we should ...
Remember Waco – When The U.S. Used Chemical Weapons On American Citizens
Post Date: 2017-04-19 20:37:00 by Deckard
The Trump Administration claims to be so horrified by the idea that a government would use chemical weapons on its own people, that they are willing to go to war over itwithout any actual proof.In order to understand what is happening today, we have to look at history, and todays date is incredibly important.On April 19, 1993, there was a government that used chemical weapons on its own people, and nearly 80 men, women and children died as a result. It didnt happen in Syria or Iraqit happened in Texas.After 24 years, there are still endless questions surrounding the Waco Siege, and one of the most important things to remember is the propaganda that was pushed by ...

Never Forget: Hero Cop Who Blew Whistle on OKC Bombing Did NOT Commit Suicide
Post Date: 2017-04-19 20:20:46 by Deckard
Oklahoma City, OK Instead of being treated as the hero he truly was, Sgt. Terrance Yeakey was silenced by his own government in an effort to keep him from exposing their complicity in one of the largest mass murders in American history which senselessly ended the lives of 168 people, including 19 children. According to his widow, instead of being showered with accolades by the US government for his heroism, Yeakey was killed, with his death being framed to look like a suicide (although a very poorly staged one) only days before receiving the police departments Medal of Valor for his heroic rescue efforts on day of the Oklahoma City bombing. On May 11, 1996, only days ...

WASHINGTON Unable to untangle his complex financial holdings to the satisfaction of the Office of Government Ethics, Cubs board member Todd Ricketts, tapped by President Donald Trump to be the Deputy Commerce Secretary, on Wednesday withdrew his nomination. Ricketts, a Wilmette resident who is a member of the billionaire Ricketts clan, was willing to divest his considerable personal portfolio of holdings, but that was apparently not enough. Some of the Ricketts investments are in family enterprises, with the Cubs and TD Ameritrade being the best known. I am deeply honored that President Trump nominated me to serve as Deputy Secretary of Commerce, Ricketts told the ...

Area Man Tells ESPN to Eff Off

Quick point before I get to the humorous content: The "prestige" media has prestige only because people confer that prestige on it. Stop conceding that prestige, and they're not prestigious any longer. A lot of people take pics and videos and post them. The major networks then ask -- for free -- for rights to republish the photos or videos. Most say yes, just because it's "prestigious" to have a media company use your work (for free!) so long as they give you some kind of minor credit at the bottom of the page. Maybe people should start saying "No," or "Yes, if you pay me a lot of money, assholes." Enter Abdul, who took this amusing photo of ...

Baltimore's solar-powered water wheel has now removed 1.1 million lbs of rubbish from the river
Post Date: 2017-04-19 11:05:40 by Willie Green
This is "Mr.Trash Wheel" a water wheel in Baltimore that removes rubbish from the river. The water wheel is powered by the river's current, which lifts rubbish and debris from the water and deposits it into a dumpster. The rubbish is then sent to be incinerated, which generates power for some homes in Maryland. When there isn't enough water current, there is a solar panel attached to the water wheel to provide additional power. Mr.Trash has been in use since 2014, removing over 1 million lbs of rubbish from Baltimore's Inner Harbor. Some of that rubbish includes 8.9 million cigarette butts and half a million polystyrene ...

In defence of Alex Jones
Post Date: 2017-04-19 10:38:14 by Deckard
A disgustingly misconstrued story attempting to defame Alex Jones has been circulating on alt-media, social media and the mainstream media. Jones, the founder of and lead host of InfoWars, is currently engaged in a child custody battle in a Texas court with his estranged wife. Jones has been upset because he has not been allowed sufficient time with his young children, a deeply personal issue which has now been splayed out before the wider media circus. During the heated court hearings, lawyers representing Jones wife said that his personality made him a poor father. She cited his frequent political rants against public figures on air as evidence of this. A ...

This hilarious comic is spot-on when it comes to how we get our information.Credit: Dustin Rogers Even the outlets with the best intentions have something different to say about the same event that another outlet is reporting on, and the only thing that readers can do is take each article with a grain of salt. Unfortunately, even if the majority of readers attempt to not react dramatically to an issue, those that cant contain themselves then spew misinformation based on what they read from a biased news source and further add their opinions into the equation. Keeping all of this in mind, Dustin Rogers, a comic artist from Columbus, Ohio, cleverly portrayed this media conundrum ...

"Our deployment has been extended 30 days to provide a persistent presence in the waters off the Korean Peninsula," Rear Adm. Jim Kilby, the commander of Carrier Strike Group One, said in a message posted on the Carl Vinson's Facebook page addressed to "families and loved ones" of the personnel on board.

Epic Drug Lab Scandal Results in More Than 20,000 Convictions Dropped
Post Date: 2017-04-19 07:46:06 by cranky
A mass dismissal of wrongful convictions ─ perhaps the biggest ever ─ unfolded in a Boston courthouse on Tuesday, as prosecutors in seven Massachusetts counties dropped more than 21,000 low-level drug cases tainted by the work of a rogue lab chemist. The number of corrupted convictions was so unwieldy that the district attorneys used compact discs to deliver lists of cases they were dropping and those they believed they could successfully re-prosecute. By day's end, just a few hundred cases involving the disgraced chemist, Annie Dookhan, remained. The exact number may not be clear until Wednesday, when the court finishes processing the lists.

By Justin Gardner In May 2004, one year after the U.S. commenced a full-scale invasion of Iraq, the New York Times issued a half-baked apology for its abysmal coverage of the intelligence used to convince America that Iraq was a threat. Looking back, we wish we had been more aggressive in re-examining the claims as new evidence emerged or failed to emerge, wrote the NYT editors. They also lamented their dependence on Iraqi defectors who made spurious claims to further the goal of regime change. It was a grudging admission that the famous newspaper played a critical role in pushing lies and propaganda, to lead the U.S. into a pre-emptive war of ...
