'They calculate that given an area less than 10 percent of the size of the Sahara Desert, the method could remove enough carbon dioxide to make global atmospheric levels return to preindustrial levels within 10 years, even if we keep emitting the greenhouse gas at a high rate during that period.'

Those opposing the bill, including the Mississippi Association of Police Chiefs, have argued that it removes important restrictions on who may obtain a permit.
"This bill would put law-enforcement officers and all Mississippians directly in harm’s way," Ken Winter, the group's executive director, said in February.
The law also does not require people to have a permit to carry a holstered weapon.

I live in south Florida. It's not considered part of the "deep south." You know, the states that suck off the government teat, have higher teenage pregnancy and illiteracy rates than anywhere else, and are more uneducated than their neighbors to the north. I squarely place the blame for this on the rampant use of religion to control the stupid. This is just another step in the wrong direction.

If quantum physics is correct, then all stripes of materialists will have to get onboard with the non physical nature of reality-it's not stuff:) then they Will have to come onboard with with the 'science' of proability theory! The probability of a single protein being formed by 'evolving' is a whooping 10 raised to the 23rd power! At one molecular permutation/day, there has not been enough time since the Big Bang-if one believes in that huge speculation- to create a single protein by the process of evolution! Read PhD. Stevens Myers-PhD. in the history of science from Cambridge and a degree in geology- "Signature In The Cell"! Then will have grounds for a real 'hair-raising' discussion on Atheism:)

I don't loath the police but I don't trust them to have my health, safety and best interests at heart, either. Avoid at all costs...

Look, my point *is*valid now. Were obviously coming at this from two different perspectives. Have a nice day.

Former police officer Michael Wood told RT there's no evidence to back up any connection between the video-taping of police brutality and an increase in the murder rate.

“The ‘Ferguson effect’ is a claim, and it’s a claim completely without merit. It’s completely fabricated,” Wood said.

What’s more, this claim actually offends policemen, he added.

“Maybe he doesn’t see it, but that’s insulting police officers: saying that they are scared, and they don’t know how to do their jobs, and they are so afraid of the camera or somebody being around.

And then it’s telling the public: we’re just wild animals, without the police stamping us on the ground, thing will go crazy.”
The director of the FBI James Comey has said that despite not being able to offer any statistical proof, he believes viral videos of police brutality are causing a spike in felonies across the US.

Firefighters entering burning buildings, athletes competing in the broiling sun and workers in foundries may eventually be able to carry their own, lightweight cooling units with them, thanks to a nanowire array that cools, according to Penn State materials researchers.

In what could be the role of a lifetime, the billionaire’s PR man sounds just like him — and for good reason.
