Who feels the pain of science research budget cuts?

Bruce Weinberg, Professor of Economics, The Ohio State University at Science + Technology – The Conversation - 18 minutes ago
Not much science will get done without the money to fund people and equipment. Michael Pereckas, CC BY Science funding is intended to support the production of new knowledge and ideas that develop new technologies, improve medical treatments and strengthen the economy. The idea goes back to influential engineer Vannevar Bush, who headed the U.S. Office of Scientific Research and Development during World War II. And the evidence is that science funding does have these effects. But, at a practical level, science funding from all sources supports research projects, the people who work... more »

To really help US workers, we should invest in robots

Nikolaus Correll, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, University of Colorado at Science + Technology – The Conversation - 18 minutes ago
University students experiment with human-robot interaction and autonomous manipulation, two elements of manufacturing's future. Nikolaus Correll, CC BY-ND America’s manufacturing heyday is gone, and so are millions of jobs, lost to modernization. Despite what Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin might think, the National Bureau of Economic Research and Silicon Valley executives, among many others, know it’s already happening. And a new report from PwC estimates that 38 percent of American jobs are at “high risk” of being replaced by technology within the next 15 years. But how soon ... more »

Growing up in Brooklyn I had never met a Republican. And they didn't run for office where I lived either. Republicans were sleaze-ball used car salesmen like Nixon. They were in other parts of the country, not anywhere near Kings Highway.

Constitutional Q&A: The Legality of Stop and ID Procedures

John W. Whitehead at 1 hour ago
[image: undefined] We are not supposed to be living in a “show me your papers” society. Despite this, the US government has recently introduced measures allowing police and other law enforcement officials to stop individuals (citizens and noncitizens alike), demand they identify themselves, and subject them to pat-downs, warrantless searches, and interrogations. These actions fly in the face of longstanding constitutional safeguards forbidding such police state tactics.

Is Brexit the beginning of the end for international cooperation?

William Magnuson, Associate Professor of Law, Texas A&M University at Politics + Society – The Conversation - 3 hours ago
It’s official: Britain is done with Europe. Prime Minister Theresa May has formally triggered the process for withdrawing from the European Union, ensuring that the United Kingdom, one of the largest and most prosperous countries in the EU, will soon leave the 28-member bloc. While the process could drag on for two years or more, the Brexit decision serves as a historic and stinging rebuke to proponents of a unified Europe. Perhaps more importantly, it calls into question the very future of the EU. Pro-Europe commentators, on both sides of the Atlantic, have argued that Brexit ... more »

Someone's Got To Jettison The Great Wall of Trump-- Might As Be The GOP

This is a delayed post. I gathered these news reports in mid-January 2017, about 1-2 weeks before Donald Trump would be officially inaugurated as the next US President. There was a debate in the US then, whether the US' commitment to the Paris Agreement in 2015 was a treaty (would necessitate Senate ratification) or an Executive agreement. The White House under the previous administration argued that it was the latter and hence, did not require Senate vote to ratify or not. Thus, the White House just freely dispensed and released $1B to the UN Green Climate Fund. $500M in late 2016... more »

Miscellaneous material for your mid-week reading. - Scott Clark and Peter DeVries point out that with interest rates still at historically low levels, Canada would be far better off funding infrastructure for itself rather than locking itself into privatized structures: But that is not true at all at the federal level. The federal government funds its infrastructure projects by issuing 30 or 50-year bonds, which it currently can do at historically low interest rates. The costs are amortized over the service life of the project. The impact on the budgetary balance is spread over ... more »

And like a thermometer as the temperature of the atmosphere increases, the “bulb” of the atmosphere should expand. And if the tropopause is at a fixed pressure with increasing temperature, the tropopause should rise in height – but at the same pressure because the weight of atmosphere above it remains ... more »

Ernst & Young no Longer Requires Degrees – No Evidence a Degree = Success

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
This is not a particular surprise although this likely overstates the case. Human greed has sadly diminished the product in an attempt to serve everyone. Worse, certain aspects of the curriculum has been hijacked in the so called liberal arts in order to promote a watered down version of Marxist ideology which puts the happy recipient into an alternate reality while providing no successful solutions. We are now wearing the fruits of this endeavor inasmuch as we have a crop of politicians attempting to run things whose connection with reality and the people is ephemeral. Wors... more »

Sasquatch Thwarts Rape Attack!

This is an extremely important report. What is confirmed is what i suspected all along. It is that the Sasquatch identifies with humanity and will work to protoect us and even assist us if we figure out how to ask They have been watching us forever and often even protecting us. Recall that they retain mind to mind communication which we gave up 45,000 years ago in order to accelerate our development.

The Truth about Hell

arclein at Terra Forming Terra - 21 hours ago
*[image: TruthHell]* I am not particularly aware of any competant spiritual guide ever peddling hell. By competant i do mean someone in active contact with the spirit world. The closest we seem to come is the rule of like attracting like and discoving that was a lousy idea as it well could be. Yet that identification is enough to draw you out as spirit. It is reported that there is a worst case situation in which some spirits are locked into a belief from which they are unable to rcover, but it continues to be self inflicted. That negative entities do exist is well attested, b... more »

None of all that arose in a vacuum and here we get the details fleshed out. We see the same patterns of proponents and apologists today romping around the political landscapes attempting frame opinions*.* The principle flaw of all forms of statism, including left and right and corporate is hierarchy and we have been really too stupid to successfully invent a better way. My own contemplations have generated my own Rule of Twelve which is too subtle by half but promises to work far better.

*(Click on Image to Enlarge)* Source: Institute for the Study of War *Sergey Sukhankin, Council on Foreign Relations*: *Kaliningrad: From boomtown to battle-station* The deployment of Iskander missiles in Kaliningrad has raised fears in Europe that the territory is becoming Russia's key battle-station. The deployment of Iskander-M missiles to Kaliningrad in October 2016 was the latest step in the continued militarisation of the Russian enclave. Previously hailed as the pilot region for EU-Russia relations, and even Russia’s answer to Hong Kong, it is instead turning into a military... more »

“This rock structure is not only surreal -- it's real. The reason it's not more famous is that it is, perhaps, smaller than one might guess: the capstone rock overhangs only a few meters. Even so, the King of Wings outcrop, located in New Mexico, USA, is a fascinating example of an unusual type of rock structure called a hoodoo. Hoodoos may form when a layer of hard rock overlays a layer of eroding softer rock. *Click image for larger size.* Figuring out the details of incorporating this hoodoo into a night-sky photoshoot took over a year.

Rather than punish a student through exclusion (suspension), restorative justice encourages the student who has misbehaved to reflect on his behavior, take responsibility and resolve to behave better in the future. The results of this new policy are: increased violence, drug use and gang activity.

Trump's More Like Journey Or Confected Nashville Crap Than Like Punk Rock

When they were younger, music fans of a certain age had to choose-- Beatles or Stones. The next generation had a similar choice-- Pistols or Clash. I liked the Beatles-- a lot. I used to take acid when a new Beatles album came out so I could really get into it fully. But, like Trump, I was a Stones guy. By the time punk rock got going I was a dj on KSAN in San Francisco and KSJO in San Jose.
