Is this due to global warming? Or, is it due to climate change? Inquiring minds want to know ...    ;-)
Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map the extent in the late 1970s.

Seriously? Which is it? Global warming or global cooling? At any rate, it is definitely climate change ...    ;-)
The Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time. Like the Dalton Minimum and Spörer Minimum, the Maunder Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures. During one 30-year period within the Maunder Minimum, astronomers observed … … Continue reading →

Here are 3 ways Americans can prevent terrorism at home

"1. Eliminate gun-free zones
"2. Privatize the TSA
"3. Follow the law, not the leader"

How important is it for you and your family to be secure?  Do you feel secure from terrorism?  Are you confident that your government is doing everything possible to secure your from terrorism?

This short and to the point article outline three things we can do as a society to prevent terrorism here on our own turf.  The reasons for these three may or many not surprise you.  They do, however, make a very strong case for doing other than our government is doing now.

What is you take on thi?

The scientific method does not bend to global warming zealots.

Hypothesis, theory and fact are all distinct categories of human thought:
• A hypothesis is a tentative explanation that can be tested through investigation.
• A theory is an established set of ideas that can be used to make predictions.
• A fact is an idea always predicted by theory and always proven by rigorous tests.

"Global warming," "climate change" and "climate disruption" are phrases bandied by zealots with a vested interest in their claims.  If true, these conditions will require radically polarized expenditures of money to reverse such effects, which also require radical lifestyle changes for much of humanity.

Notwithstanding that "climate change" has obtained for as long as climate has existed, the hysterical response to the lack of empirical evidence and tested predictions would be hilarious, if not for the seriousness with which many powerful groups have taken this to affect our lives.

Why does this decades long pause or hiatus in "global warming" remain unacknowledged?  "It's fair to say that this pause is something of an embarrassment to many in the climate research community, since their computer models failed to indicate that any such thing could happen." In other words, this hiatus runs counter to the vested interest of many powerful people.

Nevertheless, the scientific method itself does not bend to zealots.  Do you?
The science is settled. Maybe. Let's take look at some recent studies that aim to explain why projected increases in global average temperature have "paused"

Think about the source of this quotation: '... the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide warns the immunocompromised to "Avoid contact with children who are recently vaccinated," and to "Tell friends and family who are sick, or have recently had a live vaccine (such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, intranasal influenza, polio or smallpox) not to visit."'
Washington, D.C., March 3, 2015-- Physicians and public health officials know that recently vaccinated individuals can spread disease and that contact with the immunocompromised can be especially dangerous. A statement on the website of St. Jude's Hospital warns parents not to allow people to visit children undergoing cancer treatment if they have received...

• What if you needed 51% of all eligible voters to be elected to government office?
• What if Congress required at least 51% of all Representatives and Senators to approve all legislation?  That means, at least 51 Senators and at least 218 Representatives at the Federal level.
• What if all three branches of government (Executive, Judicial & Legislative) must be elected (see above) to only one (1) term of five (5) years?

Not being a fan of the state, this is not my ideal world.  Disliking the status quo even more, I'd love to see the results of such equitable changes to our representative republic.

What do you think?

What I have earned in the past has nothing to do with what I can earn in the future, any more than what I am worth indicates future value, nor what I have done defines what I can do in the future. If you allow recruiters or HR or hiring managers to control your earnings, your value and what you do, then you have relinquished control of your life. Who ought to be in control of your life?
As soon as the topic of compensation comes up on a job search, you're likely to get the question "What were you earning at your last job?"You have to be ready for it.If you don't have an answer ready

I remain confused.  13 years later, I'm hearing so much gnashing of teeth and seeing so much wringing of hands in remembrance of 9/11.  What I have failed to see or hear in these 13 years is, why has Saudi Arabia remained unscathed in all of this?

15 of the 19 terrorists were allowed into the US with Saudi passports.

• Where is the investigation of Saudi complicity in 9/11?
• Why has the US not invaded Saudi Arabia?
• For that matter, why isn't Saudi Arabia teeming with insurgents?
• How have they escaped infestations of jihadis and the turmoil that brings?
• Why is IS/ISIL/ISIS (or, whatever) not laying siege to Mecca and Medina?

It seems to me that the only country in the Mideast totally immune to war and unrest is Saudi Arabia.

What am I missing?
