The Republican party has long enjoyed a cozy relationship with Fox News. Has Breitbart replaced Fox?
Since its founding in 2007, Breitbart News Network has grown to become one of the most popular news outlets on the right.

Seriously. Banning head coverings, regulating bathing suits and forcing a Halal butcher to offer pork in the name of "freedom" requires a great deal of Orwellian doublespeak. Glad to see somebody standing up to it.
 
Rachid Nekkaz, 38, a real-estate businessman based in Paris, traveled to Belgium on Wednesday to pay 100 euros for two women fined in the first case in the country since the law against head coverings was adopted there. He's set aside a million euro of his own money to pay the fines of women criminalized for wearing head and face coverings.

“I'm in favour of a law to convict a husband who forces a women to wear the niqab and who forces her to stay at home," Nekkaz said. "But I'm also for a law that lets these women move freely in the streets, because freedom of movement, just like any freedom, is the most fundamental thing in a democracy."

The same day, he paid a 75 euro fine for a woman in the north-eastern French town of Roubaix.

“I am calling for civil disobedience,” he told FRANCE 24. “I am telling women to not be afraid to go out wearing their veils. And by paying the fines, I am neutering the law, rendering it inefficient and pointless, showing that it doesn't work. It is a humiliation for the politicians.”

This is ally work, right here. 👌👌👌
Rachid Nekkaz has set up a million euro fund to pay fines for women who choose to wear the full Islamic veil in countries, like France, where it is against the law to do so in public. A French businessman has set up a fund to pay fines for women who wear Islamic veils or…

Clinton Foundation has an "A" rating in independent evaluation.
 
See, I'm not the biggest fan of Hillary Clinton. I supported Sanders, but once it became clear he would not win the nomination, I started digging into Clinton, and the end result has been interesting: time and time again I found that the accusations against her were unfounded or blown up past recognition. Consistently. Moreover, other politicians continually get passes for the same things she gets slammed for. Makes a gal wonder, y'know?

She's still not my favorite but I have a much clearer appreciation of what she's done and worked for her entire life, and to be honest? Obama has fallen short more often than she has but he gets a complete pass, I have no idea why.

In any case, this for the constant rumbles about how bad the Clinton Foundation is...an overview and rating by an independent third party charity watch organization.

Scary, if this holds together.
 
Holy fucking shit
Reporter Jared Yates Sexton deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his raw and powerful reporting from within the raving angry crowd at a Trump Rally.

Trump is getting classified intelligence briefings while his campaign chair is in deep with the Russian mob, Russian oligarchs and Putin himself.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

{As usual on my posts, assertions that Trump is no worse than Clinton will be immediately deleted.}
 
Q: So, Andy. Why are you so concerned with a Cayman Islands lawsuit between Paul Manafort and a Ukrainian joint venture incorporated there?

A: This article, basically.
Between 2010 and early 2014, organized criminals and corrupt politicians in Russia moved US$ 20 billion in dirty funds through this laundromat's complex cleanse-and-spin cycle made up of dozens of offshore companies, banks, fake loans, and proxy agents. The process was then certified as clean by ...

Trump and Breitbart's America. So many Republicans must be completely disgusted with the party they supported for decades.

"Mysterious".
 
Mysterious deaths and close calls have some opposition figures worried that political murder is resurgent in Russian foreign policy.

I had the privilege of working with Gilles Brassard and Claude Crepeau in Montreal from 1999 to 2001. Gilles invented Quantum Cryptography with Charles Bennett and together with Claude and others they invented Quantum Teleportation.

This satellite will realize both phenomena. Exciting!
 
China launches the first quantum communications satellite – and what is that, exactly?

Introduction

I work on open technologies that are part of the revolution that reduced human DNA sequencing costs by a million-fold since the completion of the Human Genome Project.  A current research focus is the development of clinical-quality applications for processing massive data sets spanning millions of individuals across collaborating organizations, eventually encompassing exabytes of data.
