CLAIM

Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in California, Patrick Little, has expressed anti-semitic views, including calling for a United States "free from Jews."

RATING

 TRUE

ORIGIN

California’s 2018 U.S. Senate election attracted nationwide attention in April 2018, not long after the publication of a poll showing that little-known Republican and committed neo-Nazi Patrick Little had 18 percent of support among likely primary election voters, second to incumbent Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein with 39 percent.

In the SurveyUSA poll, Little — who describes himself as a “white nationalist” — had greater support than four other candidates in the state’s open primary, which candidates of any party (or none) can enter. These included outgoing California Senate President Kevin de Léon, a Democrat, and businessman Rocky de la Fuente, a Republican. 

If those poll numbers were to hold, Feinstein and Little would advance from the primary as the two top candidates and contest the general election in November. The Republican party would be represented in a national race by a candidate who advocates a future United States “free from Jews” and has repeatedly and unreservedly expressed anti-semitic and white nationalist views during his campaign. 

On 28 April 2018, Newsweek reported on the California primary and included a quote from one of Little’s social media profiles in which he advocated removing and barring Jewish people from the United States.

.....


Little is the third Republican candidate for national office during the 2018 electoral cycle to have expressed openly anti-semitic and racist views. 

In March, former American Nazi Party leader Arthur Jones ran unopposed in the GOP primary for Illinois’ Third U.S. Congressional District, and will represent the party in November’s general election. 

In Wisconsin’s First U.S. Congressional District, one of the Republicans seeking to replace retiring House leader Paul Ryan in November is Paul Nehlen, who has described himself as “pro-white” and frequently expresses virulently anti-semitic sentiments on social media.

Over the 400 years or so that humans have been measuring Earth's magnetic field, it has drifted inexorably to the west. Now, a new hypothesis suggests that weird waves in Earth's outer core may cause this drift.

The slow waves, called Rossby waves, arise in rotating fluids. They're also known as "planetary waves," and they're found in many large, rotating bodies, including on Earth in the oceans and atmosphere and on Jupiter and the sun. [6 Visions of Earth's Core]

What learning looks like in the brain

When we learn the connections between neurons strengthen. Addiction or other neurological diseases are linked to abnormally strong connections. But what does learning look like on the cellular and molecular level? How do our cells change when we learn? Using super-resolution live-cell microscopy, researchers at Thomas Jefferson University zoomed into the connections between neurons that strengthen to discover structural changes that had never been seen before. "Our observations give the field a new way of thinking about how normal learning and the maladaptive learning we see in disorders, such as addiction or autism, might occur," said Matthew Dalva Professor of Neuroscience at The Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience and Director of the Synaptic Biology Center at Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University). Rather than simply seeing bigger connections during learning, which has been observed before, Dr. Dalva and his colleagues found that the molecules involved in sending and receiving the signals between neurons appeared to be organized in clumps or "nanomodules" that both dance and multiply when stimulated by learning-like signals. The researchers made their observations using living neurons in real-time, zooming into synapses, the sites of neuronal connection where information is passed from one cell to another to enable learning and other behavior. Dr. Dalva's colleagues visualized the key molecules involved in the neurotransmission from neuron to neuron with two colors, green on sending side (the pre-synaptic side) and red on the receiving side (postsynaptic side).

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Sunday he would ask the Justice Department to look into whether his 2016 presidential campaign was infiltrated or surveilled by the FBI or the department under the Obama administration.

The Republican president's pronouncement followed a morning in which he posted seven tweets denouncing as a "witch hunt" the federal investigation of whether his campaign worked with Russia to sway the election.

Naturalised

Cowslip (Primula veris)

Svartskog, Norway

Once upon a time one or more of this species were planted to brighten a flowerbed.

Now, several decades later, it has spread and naturalised, perhaps not to my preferred locations. Nonetheless they have become a distinct member of the local flora which I treasure as they are such a lovely visual addition and provides nectar for the spring pollinators that are continuing to decline in numbers. They smell good too.

Many of the primula species originate from the Himalayas, and on my travels there I must say that nothing beats the alpine meadows dotted with purple primulas. If you are lucky you might spot one being eaten by a pika!

In The Age of Purple
Yolo County, CA, US

[Another (very small) flower from my grandfather's garden.] But if you may lend your philosophical ear for a moment, let's consider an interesting aspect of flowers together. We (humans) go through life thinking about our appearance, beauty and age on a day by day basis, year by year and decade by decade. We have better days and decades, and worse days and decades. Flowers (and plants in general) bloom rapidly but typically do so from one end to another (or one flower to another on a larger plant) and expose their entire aging process at once. The smallest pods on the bottom of this flower are older than the ones at the top; they stand tall and show their entire aging process at once as if they exist in all their ages at once.
