Apparently human vegans are not the only vegans that cheat on their diet.

http://io9.com/field-cameras-catch-deer-eating-birds-wait-why-do-deer-1689440870
Deer aren't the slim, graceful vegans we thought they were. Scientists using field cameras have caught deer preying on nestling song birds. And it's not just deer. Herbivores the world over may be supplementing their diets.

Herbivores eat meat. Obligate carnivores eats plants. On vegans are ideologues.

The claim that there are huge numbers of defensive uses of guns each year in the United States has been repeatedly confirmed, and remains one of the most consistently supported assertions in the guns-violence research area.

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/02/defensive-gun-ownership-gary-kleck-response-115082.html
It’s deja vu all over again. In a recent Politico Magazine article, Evan DeFillipis and Devin Hughes resuscitate criticisms of a survey on defensive gun use that I conducted with my colleague Marc Gertz way back in 1993—the National Self-Defense Survey (NSDS). The authors repeat, item for item, speculative criticisms floated by a man named...

Solar power is on track to become the main source of electricity in the coming decades - because it's cheaper, not because it's cleaner.  Incidentally, this is also why we should get rid of "clean energy" tax giveaways - they're no longer needed, if they ever were.
 
Solar is cheaper than some fossil fuels now and will be cheaper than all of them very soon.  The other six reasons in the article are also interesting to read.

Elizabeth, Margaret, Martin, and I enjoyed the Charlie Baker inauguration earlier today - okay, yesterday by now - with the 19 gun salute, the pipe band, and everything.

What happens when prices are set artificially low by regulation, rather than set by the free market?  Shortages, of course, as anyone but the advocates for big government health care could have seen.

Seipel opens her article with the story of 49-year-old Julie Moreno, who was one of the 2.7 million folks newly covered by Medi-Cal. After waiting three months for cataract surgery and constantly being told that there were "no slots" available, Moreno ended up borrowing $14,000 for private treatment.
 
California increases Medi-Cal enrollments by 2.7 million people, doesn't add doctors, and cuts reimbursement rates. Long waits for basic care ensue. Who could have possibly seen this one coming?

It would seem banning private gun ownership is a prerequisite for authorizing shooting of protesters with live ammo.  I guess police don't like to shoot random civilians unless the civilians can't shoot back.

More evidence that it was not Obama's policies, but rather the termination of them by Republicans in Congress, that resulted in what economic recovery we've had.

From left leaning, but quantitatively rigorous, site fivethirtyeight.com:

in this paper, the authors argue that conservatives were right and that the cutoff of benefits helps explain the surge in hiring in 2014. They use county-level data to show that places where the reduction in benefits was greatest also experienced the greatest job gains. They estimate that the policy change led to the creation of 1.8 million jobs in 2014, and that nearly 1 million of those jobs were filled by workers who otherwise would have stayed out of the labor market.

Key quote: “The analysis based on this simple inference implies that the cut in benefits in 2014 can explain nearly all of the observed aggregate employment growth in 2014."

Good stuff Warren. The data is No surprise to me, but without this data it has been difficult to sell a liberal.

Apparently, the H3N2 strain that's going around has mutated from the form in this year's flu shot.  The toddler discussed at the link had gotten a flu shot but died anyway.

In addition, this year's flu shot doesn't appear to cover any H1N3 strain, which is apparently hitting Boston hard.

We can still wash hands frequently and cover our coughs, though.

One way to ensure that adults get more sleep? Delay the morning start time of work--or at least make it flexible.
