As literal fashion statements go, “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?” — the words emblazoned on the back of a jacket that is now as scandalous as Monica Lewinsky’s blue dress — is problematic due to what psychologists call “situational context," Vinay Menon writes.

According to investigations of the United States Congress, and as anticipated to emerge from numerous ongoing government investigations, Hillary Clinton and certain other Enterprise named and unknown named, and high-level surrogates, colluded with Russian intelligence (SVR and FSB) and a disgraced (and according to a referral from the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary, a putative criminal) former British intelligence officer (Christopher Steele) to accomplish their illicit and unconstitutional objectives. These Enterprise defendants, surrogates and participants have their opportunity to properly respond before a court they knowingly misled many times using the most powerful counterintelligence tools available.

SCOTUS rules that cell phone records can require a search warrant

Cell phone companies have records of calls and locations (via tower records) that can provide a bonanza of data for law enforcement trying to see where someone (or their phone, at least) is at any given time, potentially for years.

The Supreme Court, in a narrow 5-4 decision, has decided that if the police want that data, they need to get a search warrant from a judge. Which, honestly, is not all that high of a burden, but it prevents fishing expeditions and casual use of such info.

Cops dislike search warrants, because they require arguing that there's a reason for them to search. This decision is a significant win for American privacy rights, without actually doing that much to slow legitimate law enforcement efforts.

The Milky Way galaxy hosts over 150 old globular clusters, each containing hundreds of thousands of stars densely packed together and held by gravity – these stars are almost as old as the Universe. Since the 1960s, it has been known that most stars in these clusters contain different chemical elements than all other stars in the Milky Way – these could not have been produced in the stars themselves because the required temperatures are about 10 times higher than the temperatures of the stars themselves.

The Surrey scientists argue that a supermassive star, with a mass that is tens of thousands times the mass of the Sun, formed at the same time as the globular clusters. At that time globular clusters were filled with dense gas out of which the stars were forming. As the stars collect more and more gas, they get so close to each other that they could physically collide and form a supermassive star in a runaway collision process. The supermassive star was hot enough to produce all the observed elements and “pollute” the other stars in the cluster with the peculiar elements we observe today.

Professor Mark Gieles, Principal Investigator of the project from the University of Surrey, said: “What is truly novel in our model is that the formation of the supermassive stars and the globular clusters are intimately linked, and this new mechanism is the first model that can form enough material to pollute the cluster, and with the correct abundances of different elements, which has been a long-standing challenge.”

The team proposes various ways to test this new model of globular clusters and supermassive star formation with existing and upcoming telescopes, which can peer deep into the regions where the globular clusters formed, when the Universe was very young.

The #UnitedStates attacked first, imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum from around the globe and threatening to hit tens of billions of dollars in Chinese products. Now, the world is punching back. The #EuropeanUnion is set Friday (June 22) to slap tariffs on $3.4bn in American products. #India and #Turkey have already targeted U.S. products, ranging from rice to autos to sunscreen.

And the highest-stakes fight still looms: In 2 weeks, the United States is to start taxing $34bn in Chinese goods. Beijing has vowed to immediately retaliate with its own tariffs on U.S. soybeans and other farm products in a direct shot at President Donald #Trump’s supporters in America’s heartland. John Murphy, a senior vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, estimates that $75bn in U.S. products will be subject to new foreign tariffs by the end of the first week of July.

Wikipedia Excerpts: The radiant or apparent radiant of a https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meteor_shower is the point in the sky from which (to a planetary observer) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meteor appear to originate.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiant_(meteor_shower)#cite_note-1 The https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseids, for example, are meteors which appear to come from a point within the constellation of https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseus_(constellation).

An observer might see such a meteor anywhere in the sky but the direction of motion, when traced back, will point to the radiant. A meteor that does not point back to the known radiant for a given shower is known as a sporadic and is not considered part of that shower.

During the active period of most showers, the radiant moves nearly one degree eastwards, parallel to the ecliptic, against the stellar background each day. This is called the radiant’s diurnal drift, and is to a large degree due to the Earth’s own orbital motion around the Sun, which also proceeds at nearly one degree a day. As the radiant is determined by the superposition of the motions of Earth and meteoroid, the changing orbital direction of the Earth towards the east causes the radiant to move to the east as well.
