>For years, Republican lawmakers have tried to scrap NASA's climate change research in favor of space exploration, but with President Trump and his cabinet of climate skeptics now in control, the space agency's earth sciences budget could finally be on the chopping block.

>Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the notoriously science-averse chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, told E&E News he wants a "rebalancing" of NASA's mission.

> "By rebalancing, I'd like for more funds to go into space exploration; we're not going to zero out earth sciences," he said. "Our weather satellites have been an immense help, for example, and that's from NASA, but I'd like for us to remember what our priorities are, and there are another dozen agencies that study earth science and climate change, and they can continue to do that. Meanwhile, we only have one agency that engages in space exploration, and they need every dollar they can muster for space exploration."

>That means NASA's work on climate change could go to another agency, with or without funding, or possibly get cut, E&E News explained. Smith and other Republicans acknowledged that significant changes to NASA's earth sciences program could be introduced in the near future.

>Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), who is running for NASA administrator, told E&E News that he was not committed to keeping climate research at NASA but may be open to transferring the program to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Good. Public funds should not be going towards science. If people want to invest in science, let them do so privately, in a free market place of ideas.
>>
All those billions of dollars and research time wasted creating computer models that can't even retrodict, let alone predict, and that don't include the wind, volcanoes, ocean oscillations, El Nino or even the fucking SUN.

Meanwhile, we can't have the space exploration our fucking GRANDPARENTS had because NASA's job is to a) provide "evidence" to back up the government's desire to tax the fucking air and b) reach out to muslims to make them feel good about their contributions to science.

I'm utterly amazed that space exploration and real science seem to be under better guidance with fucking Trump, of all people, at the helm. Un-fucking-real.

You might think that but there is actually surprisingly little overlap between NASA and NOAA do in terms of climate research. And none of this work focuses on global warming specifically but they still get most of the data. There is also some significant benefit to be gained from studying the climate of other planets and more local climate under the same roof and this benefit cuts both ways.

If it helps. consider that Satellite aren't bought off the shelf, and that NASA folks are the best to do the first-line interpretation of the data, calibrating the sensors, developing new technologies that have to work in orbit, etc.

>Milo Yiannopoulos lost his keynote speaking slot at the Conservative Political Action Conference after tapes surfaced of the right wing provocateur and senior Breitbart editor advocating for sexual relationships between “younger boys and older men.”

>“Due to the revelation of an offensive video in the past 24 hours condoning pedophilia, the American Conservative Union has decided to rescind the invitation,” said Matt Schlapp, chairman of the group which sponsors CPAC, in a statement Monday afternoon. The group called Yiannopoulos to “further address these disturbing comments,” but defended its original decision to invite him as a nod to “the free speech issue on college campuses.”

>The statement went on to declare that CPAC does not endorse “everything a speaker says or does.”

>President Donald Trump, along with Vice President Mike Pence, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, will be headlining this year’s event, along with top White House aides Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus. But the Milo controversy quickly threatened to taint the event and raised questions about what it would mean if other speakers still attended.

>Yiannopoulos, a senior editor at the conservative Breitbart News, is no stranger to controversy, but the CPAC's recent embrace of the crusading anti-political correctness provocateur has been discomfiting to some conservatives. Yiannopoulos was banned from Twitter after stirring up online harassment of Ghostbuster star Leslie Jones. And a planned Yiannopoulos event at the University of California, Berkeley was recently canceled when protests against him turned violent. The incident prompted Trump to threaten Berkeley with a loss of federal funds.

Sex is inherently risky and we don't have a way to control for all the risks when it comes to children. It's also objectifying. Children can't get anything useful from that relationship; all the benefit is on the adult's end. We do not want as a society to reach a place where adults are treating children as a commodity.

More importantly, children are almost always in a sort of relationship with a power-dynamic with an adult. They may depend entirely on the adult to meet their needs and are essentially at the mercy of the adult. Even if a child can recognize he's is at risk, they may lack the understanding of how to seek help.

It's disgusting how some folks on the right are trying to defend pedophilia now. It seems like much of the political right loses any concept of shame with each passing day it seems. Ever since Trump has come into office, they've shown their true colors.

Even right wing conspiracy theories revolve around sex with children. Speak whatever you want in any public space you want. But stay away from my kids if you consider yourself alt-right.

So it's ok that a woman can rape a boy and make him pay child support when he grows up but a gay teen can't consent to a gay man.

But Lena Dunham can molest her little sister and that's fine too.

Hey Faggots,
My name is John, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are fat, retarded, no-lifes who spend every second of their day looking at stupid ass pictures. You are everything bad in the world. Honestly, have any of you ever gotten any pussy? I mean, I guess it’s fun making fun of people because of your own insecurities, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than jerking off to pictures on facebook.
Don’t be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I’m pretty much perfect. I was captain of the football team, and starter on my basketball team. What sports do you play, other than “jack off to naked drawn Japanese people”? I also get straight A’s, and have a banging hot girlfriend (She just blew me; Shit was SO cash). You are all faggots who should just kill yourselves. Thanks for listening.

>Alt-right founder Richard Spencer was punched on Friday during an interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation near President Donald Trump's inauguration.
Video posted online by the outlet shows the white supremacist speaking to Washington bureau chief Zoe Daniel when he was interrupted by individuals off camera.

>Spencer was answering questions on whether he was a neo-Nazi. He said he was not, and was then asked what the "Pepe the Frog" pin he was wearing signified.

>"Pepe the Frog" is an internet meme so often used by racists and anti-Semites it was designated a hate symbol by the Anti-Defamation League.

>As Spencer was speaking, a masked individual ran up, socked him in the face and fled. Spencer left, later tweeting there was, "no serious damage."

>"It was absolutely terrible," Spencer told CNN's Sara Ganim by phone hours after the assault. "I've certain never had this happen before -- a sucker punch in broad daylight."

>D.C. police said there is no open investigation into the assault as Spencer has not filed a police report. Spencer says he called 911 at the scene and plans to file a police report. "I kind of like getting into vigorous back and forth with people who disagree with me," said Spencer.

That's the point, they give no fucks about people preaching genocide, they're just political thugs lashing out because they're retards who can't form any coherent argument against those they hate. They're overgrown children who spent way too much time in an echo-chamber and subsequently lost the ability to sway people with any honest rhetoric and now that their dogmas are being challenged they have no recourse left but to lash out like retards.

It's obvious they're just violent communists doing the only thing they're mentally capable of while cowardly hiding behind a hypocritical and transparent sense of morality. That's exactly why extremists on the right will get attacked in the street while extremists on the left get taxpayer-funded platforms to preach from.

Belief in media conspiracy theories is more just an extension of a larger problem which is people being willfully retarded.

You can maybe repair trust in journalism but it's just a temporary patch. It's only going to be so long before the root problem strikes again in some other way.

The folks on the right that believe this stuff may have some actual, legitimate grievances to air regarding culture and immigration. But they've found no artful, convincing way of presenting them or negotiating them so no duh they feel alienated. They've fallen back on "let's support the first candidate that claims to understand, until the bitter end, because we have no other ideas".

Credible in terms of news reporting, sure. They're not a made-up tabloid story outfit.

But biased to the left? Absolutely. The leftist rhetoric is almost always present in articles where such a view can be expressed, as well as by presenters on their television and radio programs.

>Italy's taxi drivers staged a sixth day of protests in major cities on Tuesday and blocked central Rome to try to force the government to crack down on burgeoning limousine businesses and the app-based Uber service.

>The taxi revolt broke out last week when the ruling Democratic Party (PD) said it would delay yet again introducing norms aimed at regulating car-hire and car-share schemes.

>Taxi drivers operate under rigid regulation and say they are being penalised by the growth of little-monitored app-based services like Uber, which connect users to the nearest drivers via smartphone, and increasingly popular chauffeured limousines.

>"We don't mind competition, but there isn't a level playing field. These companies don't have the same constraints as us," said Paolo Ricci, a taxi driver protesting outside the prime minister's office in the heart of Rome.

>"We are a public service. We have fixed fares, fixed shifts and have to take any customer, even if it is only a short ride that makes no money. The competition don't have any of these problems and the government must act," he said.

>The protest coincided with a demonstration by market and stallholders, who are up in arms over plans to implement the European Union "Bolkestine" directive aimed at opening up competition within the services sector.

>While one group of protesters closed roads around the prime minister's office, another crowded around the entrance to the nearby PD headquarters. "Mafiosi, mafiosi," the men shouted.

Ha ha. Maybe in a couple of cities for elite clientele …
But it will be a lot longer than 3-5 years for any driverless vehicles to be used widespread. Taxis are subject to vandalism, piss, vomit and other human foibles… and if the robots operate with the predictable inaccurate GPS, they will overcharge and people will not use them. Also, the ‘whore CEO’ is phobic about accepting any liabilty for the errors and dangers in his invention . .. still many bugs to work out in the Uber world.

I think it's inevitable that the taxi industry will be replaced by driverless cars very soon, but the government shouldn't favor one company in the industry over another. Uber is effectively a taxi service that uses smartphones instead of telephone operators, which is more efficient, however it's still a taxi service, and should play by the rules. At least, until they change the game, in which case legislatures should be paying ose attention to companies like Uber, and keeping up with them in terms of regulation. And likewise, taxi drivers and companies should be making an attempt to keep up with the competition and technology instead of whining that old technology is being replaced by new technology.
>>
I love using Uber when I go out of town. No offense to taxis, but Uber is pretty fucking amazing and good for the economy. These guys need to invest in upcoming city jobs instead of fighting against economic progress.

Maybe they should become electricians or something similar since those tyoes of jobs are growing and you get paid during on the job training.

guess you're just trolling

A Nova Scotia man is praising the efforts of the family dog for helping save him and two young boys who were buried under a heavy mountain of snow after their fort collapsed on top of them.

Steve Bayers, his son Ben and his friend Adam Inch were building a snow fort in Lawrencetown on Saturday when the roof suddenly caved in, pinning the man’s arms and legs underneath him.

“(Ben and Adam) were laying down in there taking a break inside the fort and I was shaving some snow off the ceiling with a small plastic shovel. Snow was falling on them and everybody was laughing and having a great time. And then the lights went out,” said Bayers in a phone interview Tuesday.

Bayers said the two boys were just feet away from him, screaming in the pitch black, but he couldn’t move under the weight of the snow to help them. He told the two 13-year-old boys not to panic and to keep breathing.

Bayers said it seemed impossible to get out until his five-year-old golden retriever, Zoose, began digging him out of the snow.

“I heard a bark and felt a tugging on my jacket, so I knew it was my dog,” said Bayers, adding that he’s not sure how long he was trapped under the dense snow.

“He was trying to pull me out. So at that point, I got my bearings and I knew my back was close enough to an exit that if I could free my limbs up and get my leg untangled, there was a chance I could get out.”

Bayers managed to free himself and began calling for help, alerting a neighbour and three friends, who ran over and started shovelling through the heaps of snow to find the two boys.

“They were screaming that they couldn’t breathe, but I knew if they were screaming, they were breathing,” said Bayers.

The incident left Bayers with a broken fibula and twisted knee, while his son has a minor concussion and sore neck and shoulder. Inch is sore, but was not injured.

Bayers described it as a “near-fatal incident.” He wanted to tell his story to warn others about the dangers of snow forts and tunnels.

“If I had left those kids there alone, they would have never got it,” he said. “If you are going to build a fort, there should always be an adult there — and do not have a roof on it, and if you do, it has to be a very thin roof.

“If we can prevent this from happening to even one more person, then it’s worth it.”

>The gravesites of more than 170 Jews were vandalized at a cemetery in University City, Mo., sometime over the weekend.

>And on Monday, the Anti-Defamation League reported a wave of bomb threats directed against Jewish Community Centers in multiple states, the fourth series of such threats since the beginning of the year, it said, a development that elicited comments from a White House spokesman and Ivanka Trump, neither of which used the phrase “anti-Semitism” or mentioned Jews.

>There were no words at all from President Donald Trump himself as of early morning Tuesday.

>That prompted the head of the Anti-Defamation League, to praise Ivanka Trump and call on the president to follow her lead.

>“Glad to see this,” he tweeted of Ivanka Trump’s comment. “All Jews need to urge” the president to step forward & share a plan. His words carry weight. His actions will speak even louder.”

>The exchanges were particularly noteworthy in part because of President Trump’s unusual response at a news conference Wednesday to a question about the rise in anti-Semitic incidents around the country. Rather than condemning them, Trump responded by talking about his electoral college victory, describing the question as unfair.

>Trump has been criticized for refusing to describe the threats toward Jews as “anti-Semitism.” An op-ed at the Forward, the New York-based newspaper written for a Jewish audience, described Trump’s “silence about anti-Semitism” as “deeply disturbing.”

This is like the third story I have heard about Jews being upset that Trump didn't comment on their personal incidents. Why do they keep baiting him like this? Either he says something sympathetic like "this was a tragedy, my heart goes out to all the families effected" or he says some stupid shit that pisses everyone off. Also, I don't like anything the president has done or said, but it's not his reponsibility to comment on everything that happens in the world, even though it seems like he does it anyway
