"The gender gap in physics, and other related subjects including engineering, has long been a cause for concern."After casually going through a list of possible explanations for why young women might not perform as well in physics as do young men — things like lack of female physics teachers, cultural pressure and expectations, and gender bias in the teaching materials — they conclude: "there may be another reason, too."
|The Age Old Secret of Patriarchal Dominance - The Projectile Arc|
"Like many parents of small (and not-so-small) boys, two of us (KW and DL) have observed the great delight young males take in urination, a process by which they produce and direct a visible projectile arc."Laying further groundwork for the assertion that standing up to pee aids in learning physics, the three detail the ways in which peeing standing up is a central yet fun part of the male life:
"The fact that boys (and men) play with their ability to projectile pee is hardly contentious. Boys are trained to pee into toilet bowls with floating targets, a huge variety of which can be bought on Amazon; Amsterdam Airport Schiphol famously cleaned up its urinals by encouraging men to hit flies etched next to the drain.
All this is experienced up to five times a day, so by 14, boys have had the opportunity to play with projectile motion around 10,000 times. And 14 is when many children meet formalized physics in the form of projectile motion and Newton’s equations of motion for the first time."
"In New York City, home to the nation’s largest police force, officer-involved shootings have fallen by more than 90% since the early 1970s, and national trends have been similarly dramatic. A Justice Department report published in 2001 noted that between 1976 and 1998, the teen and adult population grew by 47 million people, and the number of police officers increased by more than 200,000, yet the number of people killed by police “did not generally rise” over this period.
Moreover, a “growing percentage of felons killed by police are white, and a declining percentage are black.” A separate Justice study released in 2011 also reported a decline in killings by police, between 1980 and 2008. And according to figures from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the rate at which police kill blacks has fallen by 70% since the late 1960s."So why are all these multi-millionaires insulting the country that made them wildly rich and creating a national (even international) crisis about police brutality when, with rare exceptions, it's no longer there? Do they actually believe their own lie? Probably, to some extent, they do. After all, they're surrounded by it.
“The very reason (the Saints) have the privilege and opportunity to play professional football while being paid millions is because someone in uniform died protecting their right to do so,” Havard said. “It is a disgrace to the men and woman of this nation and state who have sacrificed so much.” Havard’s statement didn’t specify the amount of state money that he proposed be diverted from the Saints the NFL.
“Disrespecting our national anthem and flag in the name of social injustice is the highest form of hypocrisy,” he said. “Our free society made possible by our fighting men and women has made available free education, free lunch, housing and free healthcare and is now be considered socially unjust.
“It is time the taxpayers quit subsidizing protest on big boy playgrounds. I believe in the right to protest but, not at a taxpayer subsidized sporting event. Do it on your own time. There are plenty of disabled children, elderly and veterans in this state that would appreciate the money.”According to a 2015 Forbes story, Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson was “set to rake in an estimated $392 million from state subsidies through 2025.”
“We must act together to help the most vulnerable. The recovery process will be a long, hard road. … Working together with all of you, Barbuda can rise to be stronger and be more resilient.......”De Niro probably hoped that the public and the media would view his meeting as an example of his good liberal humanitarian activism, but otherwise not look too closely. After all, the people of Barbuda were hit hard by the storm, with 90 percent of the island’s building damaged by Irma. But unluckily for De Niro, the public quickly discovered his true interest in the Barbuda–and it’s far from altruistic.
100% FedUp - "East St.Louis, IL is the murder capital of the United States. Next door to East St. Louis is Belleville, IL, home of the Cahokia football team. The team is comprised of players who are 8 and under. On Sunday, the players took a knee during the national anthem as a show of solidarity with the rioters in St. Louis.
The Cahokia football coach who must be aware of the violence committed by mostly blacks against blacks in the neighboring murder capital of the United States wasn’t trying to teach the kids a lesson about staying away from drugs or violent gangs, he was teaching them to disrespect our flag as a way to show their anger and frustration towards the police officers who risk their lives every time they put on a uniform and dare to enter the hell hole that is East St. Louis, IL.
All 25 players on the Cahokia Quarterback Club football team took a knee during the national anthem ahead of Sunday’s game at Little Devil’s Field in Belleville."This coach is not a real man, he's a coward. If anything, he should be telling these young boys the truth about their world and warning them to the consequences of any future actions.

Daily Caller - Clinton’s memoir “What Happened,” released Tuesday, suggests the goal of the government-sanctioned torture featured prominently in Orwell’s novel is to erode trust in the authoritarian overlords who control all aspects of society. This perspective is diametrically opposed to the central lesson most readers have drawn from the book since it was published in 1949.
“ Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos. This is what happens in George Orwell’s classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered. The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust toward exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, ex-perts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves. For Trump, as with so much he does, it’s about simple dominance.”
"The origin of Clinton’s counter-intuitive interpretation of the work is unclear. Somehow, after reading a terrifying account of government overreach creeping into every aspect of human life and choice, Clinton drew the lesson that individuals should be able to trust the government, and society’s various information gatekeepers. A number of Clintons’ fellow Democrats have condemned the contents of the campaign memoir as unnecessarily divisive and derided her for the timing of its release. One former Clinton staffer told Politico that Clinton’s book release and the resulting news cycle was her “final torture” for the party."
“Our nation’s dreamers are an inspiration to all of us with their courage and their patriotism. They embody the promise of America… Of the American Dream… Make American dream again.”A group of about 40 “Dreamers,” illegal immigrants brought to America as children, chanted “Let us speak,” and “No lip service” at the House minority leader. The group demanded that Pelosi and her fellow reps fight to not have any illegal aliens deported and to stop “militarization of the border,” code for make borders open.
The group was apparently angry that Pelosi and Dem. Sen. minority leader Chuck Schumer have been negotiating with the president on immigration, in order to save the “Dreamers” from deportation. The protesters were not interested in any type of negotiation that didn’t result in them getting everything they wanted and conservatives getting nothing.JUST NOW: "Dreamers" surround Nancy Pelosi, scream "shut down ICE," and demand amnesty for every illegal immigrant. pic.twitter.com/BoTWPOQ9eP— #MenendezTrial (@NewtTrump) September 18, 2017
"Over the past year, Florida newcomer XXXTentacion has made headlines for his problematic rise to fame. From his troubling legal situation and violent past the rapper has easily made himself a target for controversy. More recently, disturbing new details have emerged regarding his alleged abuse of his pregnant white ex-girlfriend."
"Last October XXXTentacion was charged with aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, false imprisonment, domestic battery by strangulation, and witness-tampering. If convicted at trial this coming fall, the 19-year-old faces a potentially lengthy prison sentence. In Pitchfork-obtained excerpts from the alleged victim’s 142-page testimony, the Florida rapper is accused of frequent and extensive abuse."
"According to the testimony, XXXTentacion—whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy—and the alleged victim began “cohabitating” at a residence in North Miami in May 2016. Approximately two weeks later, Jahseh allegedly physically abuse the the pregnant victim and damaged her iPhone for complimenting a male friend’s jewelry. That same day, Jahseh made the victim choose between “a barbecue pitchfork and a barbecue cleaner” being put inside her vagina."
“It was a dumb mistake, but an even dumber ‘scandal.’ It was like quicksand: the more you struggle, the deeper you sink. At times, I thought I must be going crazy. Other times, I was sure it was the world that had gone nuts. Sometimes I snapped at my staff. I was tempted to make voodoo dolls of certain members of the press and Congress and stick them full of pins. Mostly, I was furious at myself.”In her previous book, Hard Choices, Clinton described attending a voodoo spirit ceremony with a “voodoo priest” during her honeymoon with Bill Clinton in Haiti in 1975. She wrote:
"One of the most memorable experiences of our trip was meeting a local voodoo priest named Max Beauvoir. He invited us to attend one of his ceremonies. We saw Haitians “seized with spirits” walk on hot coals, bite the heads off live chickens, and chew glass, spit out the shards, and not bleed. At the end of the ceremony, the people claimed the dark spirits had departed."Yeah, I think I know where they went!
"The problem is that the country he leads has shown itself to have a capacity for violence that is matched only by its ignorance of foreign affairs. North Korea is not a threat to the United States; the only reason we fought the country in the first place was because the Truman administration split the peninsula immediately after World War II, then committed U.S. troops when Kim Il-sung sought to reunify the country in 1950.”Those fearful, violent, warmongering people in Anchorage, Boise, and Baton Rouge, can be forgiven for regarding Fattig’s “special” piece as goose-stepping North Korean propaganda. The former U.S. State Department speechwriter has had a lot of practice on that theme. Fattig’s work has often appeared on the website of the Institute for Policy Studies, an interlocking directorate of the left.
“Sharifa Alkhateeb of the North American Council for Muslim Women has been largely responsible for working with the White House staff in bringing us here. As many of you may know, Sharifa was the chair of the Muslim Caucus in Beijing in 1995. And she is also a great friend to me and to my staff for many, many occasions when we call upon her for advice and counsel."Which brings us to the philosophy that drove Alkhateeb when she was alive. C-SPAN has video of a speech she gave in 1989 to Muslims for a Better America. During her speech, Alkhateeb outlined the main objective of Islam in this country - View every citizen as a potential Muslim, then make all of America Muslim following only an Islamic system of rule:
“I believe that education is one of the most important areas Muslims have to address. And while our final objective is not just to become part of the system that we experience now and that we see, our objective — our final objective — is to create our own Islamic systems. Not only create Islamic systems for Muslims, but to look at all the other people who are sharing this country with us as potential Muslims. And in that long-range process of making America Muslim — all of America Muslim."As she explained, she didn’t want her children referred to as Americans, but as Muslims. If Muslims could infiltrate the American education system, that would be one step closer to world domination."
|Academia Throttles Up The Crazy Train of Lunacy and Political Correctness|
Red Alert Politics - In response to the political landscape shift of 2016, an academic conference is encouraging participants to take steps to disenfranchise the usage of English language in the classroom and throughout academia.
The Society for Social Studies of Science, a group of humanities professors from around the globe, held their annual meeting in Boston, MA this past weekend, which is known as 4S. While most academics attend conferences to learn, network, and engage in debate about scholarly topics, conference organizers made it known that their conference would feature a new theme this year: marginalizing those who speak English.
Listed on the event website, one of the main themes of the conference was “Pluralizing Language in the Age of Trump and Brexit.” According to organizers of the conference, 4S realizes that “xenophobia and nationalism are on the rise in many places.”
“While English has become a scientific lingua franca that has been favoured in communications and networking across the globe, it is the official language of just a handful of countries,” the program reads. “Most prominently, the United States of America and the United Kingdom.”
In response to this perceived phenomenon, event organizers took the bizarre steps of requesting that individuals submit their presentations in a language other than English. The program goes as far as to say “even monolingual English speaker(s) may have parts or all of their presentation written or audio-recorded in another language by another speaker.”
The conference hired 11 translators to translate the presentations back to English for participants who only speak English.
In addition to inconveniencing individuals who have spent their entire academic career utilizing a single language to be more efficient, the 4S event organizers were also sure to include a number of liberal-themed sessions to ensure professors received a heavy dose of anti-Trump progressivism to bring back to their classrooms. The event included sessions such as “Reproductive Justice and Injustice,” “Climate Data Protection Under Trump: Strategies and Tactics,” and “Mind the Gap: Politics, Policy, and the Stylized Facts of Gender Inequality.”Maybe we all should just learn to speak Bantu and be done with it!
