Washington (CNN) Stormy Daniels was "truthful about having unprotected vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump in July 2006," according to a polygraph test report from 2011.
The report states that the "probability of deception was measured to be less than 1%." It was given to CNN by Michael Avenatti, Daniels' attorney and contains three pertinent questions: "Around July 2006, did you have vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump?," "Around July 2006, did you have unprotected sex with Donald Trump?" and "Did Trump say you would get on 'The Apprentice?'"

Daniels replied yes to all three questions. The first two were analyzed to be truthful, the third question was "inconclusive" according to the polygraph examiner Ronald Slay.

Polygraphs are generally inadmissible in court.

The polygraph was performed at the request of Bauer Publishing, which owns Life&Style and InTouch magazines, according to the reporter who interviewed Daniels in 2011. Reporter Jordi Lippe-McGraw initially interviewed Daniels for Life & Style magazine. The interview was not published at the time, but Bauer Publishing released it in InTouch magazine earlier this year.

Woman named in Stormy Daniels' document accused Trump of unwanted advances
Lippe-McGraw told CNN on Tuesday that Daniels passed the test in a broader sense. "Based off of the interview, we had her take the polygraph test to confirm the details of what she was telling us. There wasn't much in the way of physical evidence, per se," Lippe-McGraw said, adding that the big-picture question they wanted to confirm was that the affair happened, and that Daniels passed. Lippe-McGraw said that Daniels told her she had unprotected sex with Trump, because Daniels is allergic to latex and didn't have condoms at the time.

Earlier Tuesday, Avenatti tweeted out a photograph of Daniels being administered the test.

Can't I just enjoy the steady avalanche of this garbage person's dirty laundry?
>It's only in light of the blatant mishandling of the situation by Trump's lawyers and affiliates at National Enquirer that Daniels armed herself with a lawyer to pursue litigation, more to rectify her involvement in the whole thing than pursuit of revenge.
This wasn't a "whole thing" to be involved in until Daniels made it a whole thing. The issue was sleeping and buried up until recently.

>but the issue TODAY is the money.
Trump may not be as rich as he claims he is, but he is still quite rich, and $150,000 is chump change to him. Even if for some reason via magical retard accounting the money came out of his campaign, Donald Trump put $66 million dollars of his own money out of his own pocket into his campaign.

The difference between him paying $150,000 out of his own pocket to shut her up and him paying $150,000 to his campaign to pay her to shut up matters maybe for tax purposes and arcane legal minutiae, but practically speaking there's no fucking difference - maybe it was a Bad Thing but there is no world in which one of these is worthy of strident moral condemnation and the other is peaches.
The difference is that it's fucking weird and in no way should he have felt motivated to shell out 66 million as opposed to 65.85 million while paying out of pocket. So if it's chump change, why didn't he pay it out of pocket instead of using a campaign fund?

With no real reason other than arcane legal minutiae (and seriously, you're using the possibility of tax evasion as an excuse for why this is ok?) then why go through such a roundabout process. What motivation is there to do something like that?

Are we supposed to think that 150K spent deliberately out of a mutual fund was some accident or trivial mistake? Because 150K is a lot of money and I'd expect fiscal conservatives to agree that throwing it around without concern is fucking stupid since that's practically half their entire platform. Or should we be concerned that this is a part of a growing list of sketchy bullshit that's "no big deal guys don't worry about it"
>So if it's chump change, why didn't he pay it out of pocket instead of using a campaign fund?
Is there a reason why he would feel compelled not to use his campaign fund? The only thing that changes for him is the name on the check. It's about as "roundabout" as me routing money from my savings account to my checking account. It's not as though it didn't benefit his campaign.

>Are we supposed to think that 150K spent deliberately out of a mutual fund was some accident or trivial mistake?
I'm not sure you know what a "mutual fund" is.

>Because 150K is a lot of money and I'd expect fiscal conservatives to agree that throwing it around without concern is fucking stupid since that's practically half their entire platform.
Campaigns piss away money. Trump spent a billion dollars on his campaign. Hillary spent one and a half. All that money could have fed a million starving children but America simply accepts this because it's everybody's First Amendment right to piss that money away.

Donald Trump could have paid a Stormy Daniels every week for a hundred years and still had money left over. On a national scale (and unfortunately, Donald Trump is a national-scale figure) 150K is crap.
>All that money could have fed a million starving children
Someone should really make a chart of all the funds that politics wastes in terms of what charities could do with it. Most people seem ignorant to how much is spent on running for office, even for contentious state seats

While many people would run the other way when face-to-face with such an enormous arachnid, a group of North Queensland locals did the opposite and saved the terrifying creature when it was found dangling for dear life on a branch overhanging flooded water.

The spider is believed to be a whistling spider (Australian tarantula) — the name relates to the sound they make when feeling threatened. They are also known as bird-eating spiders.

Found in the warmer and more arid regions of Australia, the largest species can grow a body length of 6cm and a leg span of 16cm, with powerful fangs 1cm long.

“They are large to very large grey or brown spiders that are very hairy with two finger-like spinnerets at the end of the body. Thick hair pads on their legs and ‘feet’ allow these spiders to easily climb glass or smooth plastic walls,” explainedQueensland Museum.


So it's just news of spiders surviving a flood then.

Reporters have photographed what appears to be evidence of people voting twice in Russia’s presidential election. Vladimir Putin returned to power at the weekend with a of the vote.

In the town of Ust-Djeguta, in southern Russia near Georgia, Reuters reporters photographed 17 people who appeared to cast two ballots. Leila Koichuyeva, a member of the election commission, when shown the pictures of people who apparently voted twice, said: “They could be twins.”

Zukhra Chomaeva, another election official at polling station number 217, said: “How do I know if they’re the same person? They might look the same.”

Ludmila Sklyarevskaya was among those photographed apparently voting twice, once at polling station 215 and once at polling station 216 in the town. She denied any wrongdoing.

Many of the people photographed appeared to be state employees: Sklyarevskaya was identified by a colleague as a hospital deputy director of health and safety.

Sklyarevskaya arrived to vote with a group of eight other women and one man through the gates of polling station 216. About 20 minutes later, the same group were observed voting again a few hundred metres away at polling station 215.

Approached about the incident, Sklyarevskaya said she had voted only once, at a third polling station, number 217. “Who directed you to do this investigation?” she asked. “You do not have the right to get involved in the electoral system.”

Sudan, the world's last male northern white rhinoceros, died in Kenya on Monday, leaving his species one step closer to extinction, even as a group of scientists undertake an unprecedented effort to try to keep this animal from vanishing entirely.

Sudan was 45 years old, and his health had deteriorated in recent weeks after a severe leg infection. In a statement, the Ol Pejeta Conservancy said that his condition worsened and that he was no longer able to stand up, so his veterinary team decided to euthanize him.

Sudan was captured in Sudan in 1975, when he was just 2 years old, and was taken to Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. But as that zoo fell into financial troubles and rhinos failed to breed, Sudan was relocated in 2009 to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in Laikipia County, Kenya, along with two northern white rhino females named Najin and Fatu.

The thinking was that in a place closely resembling their homeland, they would thrive. Northern white rhinos used to be found in an area spanning Uganda, Chad, southwestern Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Some 2,000 existed in 1960, according to the World Wildlife Fund, but war and the poaching that funded the fighting drove them to extinction in the wild.

Joseph Thaida, who took care of Sudan at the conservancy since 2012, remembers him as an affectionate and gentle rhino who had his picture taken with tourists and served as the centerpiece of publicity stunts. The most famous was when Sudan got his own Tinder profile last year to bring attention to the plight of his subspecies and to direct donations to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy for research on assisted reproductive technologies for rhinos.

"Whenever he hears people talking, he loves to come close, because he knows he's gonna be scratched," Thaida told NPR last year.

Are you trying to imply that this rhino didn't carry any deleterious traits? With such a small founder population, even if we did manage to get them breeding again it would bottle neck hard as the genetic diversity among 3 members would be incredibly low. Combine that with the fact that rhinos don't mate often, you would net a few offspring per generation. All of this combines to create a situation similar to the Amish
Amish aren't really that inbred.
Well that's due to the fact they get 3rd parties like me to fertilize there women. I swear in a decade I have created 3 for sure perhaps 4 halfies.
They inject some chemical into rhino horn, that, when ingested, makes the person extremely sick but doesn’t hurt the rhino.
But wouldn't they still have to kill the rhino to ingest it? Why not just sell them ground chicken bones and call it rhino horn.

>James Wilcox IV, a 28-year-old Army veteran, lives in Tacoma, Washington, as he wraps up his undergraduate degree in history at the University of Washington. His father is a fourth-term Washington state legislator, and his family has owned a farm since 1909, which today specializes in cage-free, organic eggs. According to his friends, Wilcox enjoys debating politics, and he describes himself as a moderate Republican.

>Wilcox rates himself as “concerned” on Global Warming’s Six Americas, and of his fellow Republicans, he says, “I could certainly wish that more Republican politicians were willing to be scientifically literate.”

>Wilcox has company; 31% of American Republicans agree that humans are a major driver of climate change, according to public opinion research by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, which publishes this site.

>While it’s tempting to stereotype one’s political opponents, Wilcox is an example of those who present an opportunity to galvanize bipartisan agreement on climate change. Extreme voices often grab headlines and stoke social media wars, but productive conversations take place more quietly, allowing a glimmer of optimism amid our seemingly intractably partisan politics.

Despite the North Pole being shrouded in darkness for another month, temperatures in the Arctic have soared by as much as 45 degrees Fahrenheit above average. This has brought temperatures above freezing in February in one of the coldest places on Earth.

Many in Europe experienced colder temperatures than the Arctic in the past few days as the polar vortex continues to collapse, the insulating body which keeps cold temperatures within the high latitudes.

Now, professors are grappling with an extreme melting event many thought was decades away. Greenland has experienced 61 hours of above freezing temperatures in 2018 thus far, during what should be the coldest months of the year.

This past weekend a storm pushed warm air northward into the Arctic, pushing temperatures to just above freezing and approximately 45 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than average. In this instance, it appears the intruding warm air into the Arctic was not pushed back by the polar vortex, a wall of wind which circulates the Arctic.

This cant be true.
If california gives illegals drivers licenses and then has a seperate law that automatically registers people with drivers licenses to vote, then illegals could vote in california.
If this were true, then why hasn't CNN or WaPo published an article about it?
Is this some next level shitposting or did you type that post with a straight face?
Yes, California law lets illegals get a driver's license, but if you bothered to read the post, you'll discover two things:

1) It has a little "i" on it, so you are essentially registering yourself as illegal. (Suffice to say, in this climate, it is thus not popular, but it does stop you from having your car impounded for driving without a license.)

2) You do not need a driver's license to vote in California, you do not even need to visit the DMV - you need a SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. The only two (legal) ways to get that, is either be born here, or be granted citizenship. You are not eligible to vote with a driver's license alone - they merely offer to attempt to register you to vote, if you are eligible.

This is true for federal elections (such as presidential elections) - but California has some odd "Citizen of the State" laws for local elections. Though, they tightened those up quite a bit since the mormons used the loophole to push Prop 8.
>automatically registers people with drivers licenses to vote
It doesn't. They give you a seperate form to register to vote with all the other DMV forms - same one that you can pick up at any post office and various activist's stands outside stores. You gotta put your SSN on it for it to be processed - the feds give those out.

A woman in Tempe, Ariz., has died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber, in what appears to be the first known death of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle on a public road.

The vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk.

The funniest thing is.. there is a crosswalk, the city paid to put in sidewalks, that look like they lead across the street, then put up signs saying these sidewalks are decorative and are not meant to be used

keep stepping in front of moving vehicles, I'm sure the court settlement will make you feel better from your wheelchair
>Smart car punishes stupid jaywalker
from what I am seeing, some city planner put in sidewalks trash cans all the normal things next to the bus stop where people cross the road

then the road planner came through and cancelled plans for the actual crosswalk

so all the people using the bus to go to the theater, jaywalk

then someone got hit, probably not even the first person

Syrian forces involved in a mopping-up operation in recently-freed areas of Eastern Ghouta have come across a large arms depot including weapons made in France, Fars News Agency has reported, citing field sources.The discovery of a cache of French-made weapons comes following a report by the Syrian Army Monday that the military had found a clandestine workshop used for the manufacture chemical weapons in the village of Aftris.

Paris has made no secret of its weapons deliveries to Syrian 'rebels', with illicit deliveries continuing in 2012 despite a European embargo. In a 2015 interview, then-President Francois Hollande admitted that France had delivered the weapons, saying that he was "certain that they would end up in the right hands." France provided the militants with small arms, rocket launchers, and anti-tank missiles. In addition to weapons, France has also provided rebel groups with other forms of support, including cash and military advisors. In 2014, Hollande justified the supply of weapons, saying that France "cannot leave the only Syrians who are preparing a democracy…without weapons."

>Even before the allegations against Harvey Weinstein in October and Hollywood’s Time’s Up initiative to combat sexual misconduct, adult video had seen scandals, including star Nikki Benz’s claims of on-set sexual assault last year against producer-director Tony T. Benz said via Twitter that the director stomped her head and choked her after she yelled “cut.” In 2015, multiple women alleged porn actor James Deen assaulted them.

>Both men have disputed the allegations — Tony T. even sued, and the case is being appealed. He said Los Angeles police declined to pursue the case, but the LAPD hasn’t confirmed one way or another. Meanwhile, Deen continued to release titles through his production company last year.

>Jeremy, accused of assault by multiple women, was cast out of AVN, but he was spotted at the XBIZ conference in Los Angeles last month before, organizers say, he was removed.

>Since November, porn has faced another scandal: a wave of tragedy that claimed the lives of performers August Ames, Olivia Lua, Olivia Nova, Turi Luv and Shyla Stylez.

>Ames hanged herself after she was cyberbullied for implying she didn’t want to work with a male performer who appeared in gay porn. Luv, a.k.a. Yuri Beltran, died of a suspected overdose not long after she tweeted that she needed a hug. Causes of death of the others — Styles died in her sleep — were not immediately known, as the coroners’ conclusions have been delayed.


>At the awards show last month, Ames’s husband, Kevin Moore — an adult filmmaker who is now working on an industry mental health initiative — told the crowd, “There can never be another AVN Awards show that has a memorial full of young women ever again.”

This is way overblown to hell and back. Anthropogenic climate change has a long history as a theory. There was speculation by a subset of climatologists into the way human activity could influence climate in the future and that reflecting solar radiation would in fact cool the planet. That never panned out in the data, so that theory didn't catch.

If you think that's a conspiracy, that explains a lot, because this is exactly how science is supposed to work. Scientists collect data, run analyses, and other scientists attempt to replicate the findings or corroborate them in other domains of research. Theories disappear when they fail to gain traction because consensus turns against them.
>(((experts))) who assured us three decades ago that we were headed for an ice age
Global cooling was never widely believed among actual climatologists.
Again: stop relying on bloggers and shitty news sites for information about science.
oh ok but this time it's legit right
>oh ok but this time it's legit right
During the 70s there was a scientific debate on whether there would be warming, cooling, or nothing at all. Many scientists published geophysics papers investigating the matter. Eventually, the scientists who thought there was going to be cooling decided that they'd been proven wrong.

If you think that almost all scientists in a subfield agreeing on something isn't any more credible than a small fraction of scientists believing something, well, you can believe whatever the fuck you want.
