Quotes of The Day

Quote I

So, let’s be clear. There is no doubt that the climate is changing. The climate has always changed and always will. The climate will never stay the same – nor should it. The only thing more absurd than denying climate change is thinking that humans can stop it from changing. But when people today say the words “climate change” they mean something else. They mean that humans are to blame. Allan Chatenay


Quote II

"In a certain sense we were able to accomplish more in the minority than we had the presidency or were even in the majority." Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)


Quote III

We're talking about stupid people with a progressive education, a toxic mix that is never good news. Pat Condell

You have your hard labor, your organized labor, your menial labor, your labor of love and now Emotional Labor.

A communications professor at the University of San Francisco is urging colleges to pay female faculty members for their “emotional labor.”

Brandi Lawless, who teaches classes oriented towards social justice, argued in the March issue of Review of Communications that “emotional labor” is a form of academic work, just like teaching classes and grading homework is for professors.

Emotional labor refers to “demonstrations of sympathy and empathy, one-on-one attention, supportive communication, counseling, general development of personal relationships, and making a person 'feel good,'” according to Lawless.

Really?

Anyone who has had a MRI knows it is an uncomfortable procedure. British scientists develop a wearable MRI scanner.

NOTTINGHAM, England (CBS) British scientists have invented a new type of brain scanner that patients can wear on their head allowing them to move while being tested.


The device, which looks like a prop from a budget sci-fi movie or phantom of the opera, is in fact the latest thing in brain scanning.

"I think in terms of mapping brain activity, brain function, this represents a step change," said Matt Brookes, a physicist at the University of Nottingham.

Because you can do this while wearing it -- play bat and ball, or even drink a cup of tea.

Funny thing. When the New England Patriot's tight end Aaron Hernandez was busy with guns, Pats owner Robert Kraft was quiet. Fast forward a couple of years the NFL has gone full blown SJW and so has Pats owner Robert Kraft.

Students and families from Parkland, Fla., were transported to Washington, D.C., ahead of the “March for Our Lives” against gun violence this Saturday with the help of the New England Patriots.

On Thursday, team owner Robert Kraft provided the team’s official plane to fly the families of the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and some of the students who were injured to the nation’s capital for the event, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said.

San Francisco as with all large cities have problems.Of course animal hides and meat consumption has to be addressed.

We are happy to hear that cleanliness and hygiene are not issues.

In November of 2017 alone, 6,211 needles were collected while via the 311 App (the “concerned citizen” reporting app set up by recently deceased San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee), 1,498 requests were made to clean up human feces. The public defecation problem has become so intolerable in San Francisco that private citizens have built an online map to track the concentrations of poop in the city, so that pedestrians may know to avoid certain areas.

And it’s not just poop. The overwhelming smell of urine on parts of Mission Street and Market Street would make your nose bleed. I recall the first time I rode BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit, San Francisco’s subway system) and was nearly knocked over by the sheer stench of the station. I was surprised to learn that exiting the station supplied little to no relief — the urine smell hangs heavy in the more populated areas of the city and is nearly inescapable. In a dark twist of humor, the city has had to replace numerous different street poles due to urine eroding the foundation.

Use of animals = bad.

Animal behavior = good.

PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. - He barreled through the wrong fence, thought he was being chased by paratroopers falling from the sky and nearly got hit by a plane.

It all started, the man later told Pierce County sheriff's deputies, when his search for "better dope" hit trouble early Tuesday when he ran out of gas.
