How to Improve on the World’s Fastest Car

SSC looked to aircraft for inspiration, and despite the added downforce, the Striker and Aggressor look like they could launch into the skies at any moment

The SSC Tuatara was the world’s fastest car by a long shot. Then it wasn’t. Then it was again … by a much skinnier margin. Now SSC is taking a break from the screaming straightaways in a bid to prove that the world’s fastest car is more than a runway rocket. It’s launched two new Tuatara editions tuned specially for the twists and turns of the track. The Striker and Aggressor add serious aerodynamics to the Tuatara’s mass of twin-turbo V8 power, boosting downforce and track handling. read more

Transgenders for 3 Year Olds – What’s Wrong with That?

Nothing is sacred anymore, at least not to the left. Not even our children. There is no other way to describe this other than it’s just plain sick. When we on the right say, and have said for years, “they’re coming for your kids,” this is what we meant.

The left understands that to shape society, you have to get the kids. And get them as early as possible. read more

Panasonic is involved in a project on the island of Ishigaki, southwest of Okinawa, to seek ways to grow vegetables in subtropical monsoon conditions. Part of the Japanese government’s Asian Monsoon Plant Factory System (PFS) Consortium, the goal is to create a stable local supply of produce despite the climate. read more

Cancel Culture has Progressed to Self-Cancellation

The following is just painful to read, as cancel culture appears to have a virtual stranglehold on higher education.

And worse, academics, who are supposed to be the ‘smart’ people, are now canceling themselves. White guilt has become ridiculous and laughable.

As you read this, remind yourself of what the author, Jonathan Turley points out – that the Spanish language, like French, English, German, Portuguese, etc., are all European languages. By the logic of the self-cancelers, should then anyone south of our border NOT be speaking Spanish or Portuguese? read more

The Slowest Earthquake ever Found

Ancient coral structures called microatolls preserve geological history, and now some in Indonesia have told the tale of a record-breaking 32-year earthquake

Most earthquakes last seconds to minutes, but others will rumble along slowly for days, weeks or even months, at low frequencies that may not be felt at the surface. Now, researchers in Singapore have discovered the slowest earthquake ever found, which lasted 32 years. read more

WND Exclusive – All free thinkers should stand with Israel

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

The so-called Palestinians could have had their own “homeland” long ago if it weren’t for “them Jews” and the Oppressor State, Israel.

This, of course, is the worldwide conventional wisdom.

But as is most often the case, conventional wisdom is wrong. In fact it is the opposite of wisdom for anyone who cares to do just a little research and maintain an open mind.

I realize in this day and age, that’s a big ask. read more

See-Through Solar Cells

A new electrode could help pave the way for efficient transparent solar cells that could be used as windows
A new electrode could help pave the way for efficient transparent solar cells that could be used as windows

With a view to one day developing transparent solar cells that can double as windows in homes and other buildings, an international team of scientists has demonstrated a new type of transparent electrode that can function as a key building block. The breakthrough overcomes some performance issues with previous efforts in this area, and lays the groundwork for advanced tandem solar cells that combine the strengths of two separate but complimentary technologies.
