Joke of the Day

A man asked his wife what she’d like for her birthday.

“I’d love to be six again,” she replied. On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear, everything there was! read more

Social Justice Math

Well, you can’t make this stuff up. After centuries racist mathematics, we’re finally waking up. And just in time, I guess.

from the College Fix:

Educators work to combat racism, whiteness in math

“Math equity” doesn’t mean 1 + 1 = 2.

The term refers to the growing insistence among educators that teaching math in the classroom comes with some inherently biased methodology that must be addressed.

Proponents of “math equity” also stress the importance of social justice issues such as race, diversity and gender in math education — a trend that’s catching on.

More professors and educators are tweeting under the hashtag #MathEquity to share strategies on the topic, and webinars and other pedagogical sessions on it abound. read more

The U.S. Marine Corps used a new portable jammer system last week to jam an Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle, forcing it to pitch into the sea. The new Light Marine Air Defense Integrated System (LMADIS) jams the signal between drones and their operators, leaving them at the mercy of physics, and inevitably, gravity. read more

Joke of the Day

A man had just settled into his seat next to the window on the plane when another man sat down in the aisle seat and put his black Labrador Retriever in the middle seat next to the man.

The first man looked very quizzically at the dog and asked why the dog was allowed on the plane.

The second man explained that he was from the Drug Enforcement Agency and that the dog was a ‘sniffing dog.’

“His name is Sniffer and he’s the best there is. I’ll show you once we get airborne, when I put him to work.” read more

Wyden Ushers Illegal Alien Across Border

How is this not illegal? And how is this democrat Senator not under arrest and jailed for this?

from Breitbart:

Mexican Women Have Right to U.S. Healthcare, U.S.-Born Children, Says Democrat Senator

Mexican women have a legal right to U.S. healthcare, and also to birth their children in the United States if they ask for asylum, Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden claimed Saturday. read more

What are the Residents of Baltimore Supposed to Do

Well, I think I have a solution – one that both conservatives and leftists, Republicans and Democrats, could embrace.

But first – a logic chain of sorts.

It seems the crime rate in the Northern Triangle of Central America – Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, is falling. Yep – it’s actually decreasing. Is this due to the efforts of their local and national governments? Well maybe – but I doubt it.

Could it instead be that as hundreds of thousands of innocent people flee the violence in these three countries, it would leave behind just the criminals?

Is that it – that all the good, law-abiding citizens are fleeing so the criminals have fewer victims to prey on? This is what we’re told – is it not? That all these innocent families are showing up at our border, requesting asylum to escape the violence. read more

For the last few years a cold war has been brewing in the world of food-labeling. Sensing the oncoming market disruption from alternative and plant-based meat substitutes, traditional meat-producing industries have been lobbying to pass laws regulating what can, or cannot, be called meat. The mission has so far been reasonably successful, with a number of US states passing laws limiting certain terminology to highly specific sources. read more

The Unassailable Squad

from the American Spectator:

The Squad Becomes the Untouchables

When I first heard that Donald Trump went after Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (I had not heard of Ayanna Pressley), I immediately expressed gratitude that someone had the guts to push back. These three congresswomen are unhinged, a fact further revealed a week earlier in the “testimony” of a brazen AOC and a half-sobbing, ready-to-burst Tlaib. The depth of the radicalism of the AOC-Tlaib-Omar troika, in full display after only a few months in Congress, is difficult to express. read more

A team of scientists from Israel report compelling new insights into how the metastatic spread of melanoma is assisted by nearby fat cells. The research does not suggest obesity enhances the metastatic potential of skin cancers but it does point to new drugs that can stop the spread of melanoma. read more
