Podcast – Torture Photos Released – A Reparations APP

Today I will discuss 200 photos the ACLU demanded our Military release documenting the horrific acts of torture our service men and women perpetrated on the innocent detainees in Iraq and Afghanistan, at places like the infamous Abu Ghraib facility.

I also discuss reparations and one black activist’s want for America to pay up. The good news is that if you happen to be white and guilty about being so, there is an APP just for you.

From The Rooney Rule to the Looney Rule

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2003 the National Football League instituted a hiring practice called the Rooney Rule. The rule was named for Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and chairman of the NFL diversity committee and a big liberal. The rule mandates that every NFL team interview at least one minority candidate for a head coaching and executive positions. By minority, they actually only mean black applicants.

The reason for this mandate is that about 70% of all NFL players are black whereas virtually all head coaches and G.M.s are white. To Rooney and the diversity committee, this would not do. It was like black players doing their white masters bidding all over again. This new rule was a perfect solution for the guilty white liberal owners.

After its institution, the rule was immediately criticized by activists and academia that it was mere window dressing as it only applied to head coaching positions, not to assistants. At no time has anyone on the committee pondered the merit based system of hiring that has worked for so many years and produced some of sports greatest head coaches. read more

Science has turned its torch to many corners of the animal kingdom in the pursuit of advanced adhesives. Immoveable mussels, grippy geckos and stubborn shellfish have helped nudge these efforts along in the past, and now another critter has emerged with a few sticky secrets of its own. read more

Setting the Record Straight on the Carson/Cruz Dust Up

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On Wednesday I was a little hard on the Cruz campaign. In fact I did something I accused his campaign of doing – not fully checking the background of a story before putting it out there.

I’m speaking of the Iowa Caucus and the ensuing firestorm caused by the spread of a rumor that Dr. Carson was hanging it up after Iowa. The Donald is so upset over losing to Ted Cruz that he wants a mulligan – a do-over, like what you get when you’re five. He’s now saying it’s not his fault he lost. What a child.

How does that even make any sense, other than to assume that every voter who baled on Carson went directly to Cruz, bypassing both Trump and Rubio? And has anyone seen any statistics of Caucus-goers abandoning Carson in droves? I haven’t. It defies logic – but then most of what Trump has been doing lately defies logic.

If you happen to be a WWE or UFC fan, the upcoming Saturday night Republican debate in New Hampshire is likely to look familiar. It’s going to be a bloodbath and everyone on the stage will be targeting Cruz because of this. He had better be well prepared with the facts and the timeline of events surrounding this Carson dropping out rumor. He will pay a price if he’s not fully prepared. I have confidence he will be, but it will likely not matter to the other candidates, or the so-called moderators. We’ll just see if they keep a handle on things or stoke the fires of discontent, which is more likely, being that everyone except the voters hate Cruz and would love to take him out. read more

The Rubbee 2.0 has a longer range and is “smarter” than the original model

While there are plenty of add-on electric bicycle motors out there, the Rubbee takes a particularly interesting approach. The product of a successful Kickstarter campaign, it incorporates a powered polyurethane roller that rubs against the bike’s rear tire (hence the name), helping to augment the rider’s pedaling power by driving the wheel forward. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Let’s Treat Government Like a Sporting Event

Can anyone honestly say that a President Trump would accept not pushing some agenda item he really wanted because it just happened to be unconstitutional?

No, of course not. He would charge his legal team, as Obama does, with finding other historic yet unconstitutional precedents and point to those as justification for his actions. Or like past presidents, just make it up or ignore the document completely. read more

Javey and his team set out to develop a device that tracks key chemicals in real-time and can be worn comfortably while the subject moves around during exercise

Our sweat contains a bunch of useful information about our bodies, but diving in to retrieve it hasn’t always been so straightforward. Eyeing a future where wearables not only track our heart rate and activity, but things like hydration and muscle fatigue as well, Berkeley engineers have developed a flexible sensor that can measure biochemicals in perspiration in real-time to build a more complete picture of our well-being.
