Chase Purdy – Trump has gagged the US Agriculture Department’s research arm from publicly sharing its work

An order of silence has been handed down to the US Department of Agriculture’s research arm, prohibiting the taxpayer-funded agency from releasing its work to the public, according to a report by BuzzFeed.

The message was handed down to the Agricultural Research Service (ARS) just days after Donald Trump was sworn into office as president. At least a couple of other agencies have been put on ice over what they are allowed to share with the public, among them ...

ANDREW LEVINE – Obama: Sad and Glad to See the Back of Him

Last January, before Iowa and New Hampshire and Super Tuesday, it seemed certain that a Democrat would be elected President in 2016.

Democrats were widely, and justifiably, despised, but that didn’t matter; there wasn’t a Republican running who wasn’t too ludicrous or too loathsome or both to be taken seriously.

It didn’t matter either that long before last January, Hillary Clinton had the Democratic nomination sewn up.

Hardly anyone was truly happy about that.  But thanks to the Clintons’ connections and their control ...

Mary Wilder – Obama leaves Trump a broken economy that’s $20 trillion in debt, 95 million out of work

In an attempt to protect the “sacred” reputation of their hero, President Barack Obama, the Regressive Left has started lying about virtually everything. All of his failures are deemed as successes. All of his controversies are ignored as if they never existed in the first place. It’s a dangerous standard they have set, but it isn’t all that surprising.

Now things stand to get even more ridiculous as they are trying to claim that the economy that Obama is leaving ...

Gilbert Doctorow = Russian Hardliners Gain from US Putin-Bashing

Last week, Hillary Clinton told reporters on her campaign plane that the Russians are trying to disrupt the U.S. elections to discredit the process and sow discord among Americans. This goes one step further than her previous charges of Russian influence thought the “Kremlin’s candidate,” Donald Trump, or still earlier, the claim that the Democratic National Committee’s server had been hacked by intelligence services reporting to Vladimir Putin. Of course, all these charges were made without proof.

Meanwhile, in the Russian ...

Scientists recorded two dolphins ‘talking’ to each other in an advanced language

Dolphins can carry on conversations in an advanced spoken language made up of pulses and whistles, a new study has found.

While marine biologists have long understood that dolphins communicate within their pods, the new research, which was conducted on two captive dolphins, is the first to link isolated signals to particular dolphins. The findings reveal that dolphins can string together “sentences” using a handful of “words.”

“Essentially, this exchange of [pulses] resembles a conversation between two people,” Vyacheslav Ryabov, the ...

Ilya Arkhipov – Putin Blasts Trump and Clinton for ‘Shock’ Campaign Tactics

Vladimir Putin blasted both Donald Trump’s and Hillary Clinton’s tactics on the campaign trail but refused to publicly take sides in a U.S. presidential race in which he’s been accused of secretly favoring the New York real estate billionaire.

“They’re both using shock tactics, just each in their own way,” the Russian president said in an interview. “I don’t think they are setting the best example,” he added.

Putin, who has won praise and a pledge to improve ties from Trump while ...

Tim Radford – Scientists link conflict and climate change

LONDON, 17 August, 2015 − Ethnic conflict linked to tragic episodes of civil war, waves of refugees and even the collapse of nation states could be made more likely by climate-related disasters.

A team of European scientists say they can demonstrate, “in a scientifically sound way”, a link between civil violence based on ethnic divisions, and episodes of drought, intense heat or other climate-linked weather extremes.

That climate change seems to be a ...

Lynn Parramore – How MBA Programs Drive Inequality

Business school students are taught to extract resources instead of creating value.

Over the last several decades, American business executives have made decisions that have exacerbated the inequality that chokes prosperity for the country. They have misallocated resources and they have awarded themselves mind-boggling compensation packages while workers have suffered stagnant wages and increasing job insecurity. The stats are shocking: In 1965, a typical CEO took in about20 times what an average employee earned, while the latest figures ...

VIJAY PRASHAD -The New Facade for Regime Change: a Brief History of Humanitarian Interventionism

Sitting in his presidential palace in 1991, Iraq’s President Saddam Hussein and his Culture Minister Hamad Hammadi drafted a letter to Mikhail Gorbachev, President of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.). Hussein and Hammadi hoped that the U.S.S.R. would help save Iraq from the West’s barrage. Hammadi, who understood the shifts in world affairs, told Hussein that the war was not intended “only to destroy Iraq, but to eliminate the role of the Soviet Union so the United States ...
