    On more conservative/anti-MSM websites, this type of analysis is being shared about Harvey.

    People want to work on protecting cities from climate change/extreme weather events? Don't rely on mayors/actors/anyone that might confuse oceans with the atmosphere to relay the information. Go to bat for NASA's data collection, talk about the infrastructure needed for the once in a century events that already are known to occur, promote and share the primary sources that journalists allude to in their scientific "reporting".

    Any reason why you decided to use "Boston march against alt-right rally draws thousands" as opposed to "Boston march against right-wing rally draws thousands"? (additional archive to show the "right-wing" title, and archive of this post to demonstrate editorial bias")

    Tens of thousands of anti-racism protesters have opposed the "Free Speech" rally in the US city of Boston that featured right-wing speakers.

    The rally on Boston Common, which attracted only a small crowd, disbanded early and the participants were escorted out by police.

    The organisers had said they would not give a platform to racism or bigotry.

    ...

    Meanwhile the organisers of the rally said that "misinformation in the media" was "likening our organisation to those that ran the Charlottesville rally".

    "While we maintain that every individual is entitled to their freedom of speech and defend that basic human right, we will not be offering our platform to racism or bigotry," the group wrote on a Facebook page dedicated to the event. "We denounce the politics of supremacy and violence."

    That is from the BBC article.

    Is Assange that correct when he stated "#Boston: 20k protest against "free speech" today. GOP controls gov+congress+supreme+cops. Give them the only thing you have left? Smart."? https://twitter.com/JulianAssange/status/898996827822981123

    So ... what are the actual arguments against the document in question? second source with formatting intact, archive, third source Because honestly, the reasons why it was even written in the first place are why I am considering dropping all google services. And seeing as there is real dissent. Which is also funny, because if it was just quick bylines, I could agree with "Fuck Google and everything it pretends to represent.". And in this case, about freedom of speech, censorship, and more. EDIT: For hilarity, will link a youtube rant about why I have been giving Google the side eye here. EDIT 2: No, the Google manifesto isn’t sexist or anti-diversity. It’s science archive.

    So you're telling me the US military can cut another 41 million dollars of rampant spending, not unlike frivolous camo, or superfluous training unrelated to warfare? That your best comparison is to point to other rampant spending in the military? When was the last time you spent time on a base, and seen first hand just what reduced, or moved budgets look like? And you are asking the military to eat up 220 million potential medical costs because? (edit, sorry, I used estimate of potential costs using numbers I already quoted, "showed that the direct medical costs (surgery and hormones) could be nearly $1 billion dollars over 10 years. Meanwhile, the lost time due to service members not being deployable or taking special leave could drive the total cost to anywhere from $1.9 billion to $3.7 billion over 10 years." but that's from the hill )

    And you're telling me that it is best to allow a pre-existing condition, that whose best treatment is extensive surgery alongside therapy to reduce anxiety, and depression (which already come with their own costs towards troops) for active service?

    Nothing I have read has convinced me this is a bad policy. And that is part of the reason why I spend any time on this site, to come across those specific arguments.

    What bait? That it is about appeasement to racists? That the numbers are obviously lowballed, if even you look at wikipedia, that states that the most recent estimates are ""with midrange figures of 2,450 in active duty and 1,510 in reserves." Or the other bait that it is about race, religion, or sexual orientation, when, I am quoting a human rights org, ""Being transgender does not imply any specific sexual orientation. Therefore, transgender people may identify as straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc."

    Or is it about the bait on the trans issue? That it is immediately framed as a matter of bigots, even when the main type of arguments against transgender inclusion is primarily about financing medical costs.

    For a majority of transgender persons, simply living a stable life requires extensive medical treatment and clinical assistance. ^72 Necessary care normally includes “ongoing psychotherapy and counseling sessions, periodic hormone treatment, long-term electrolysis sessions, periodic outpatient body-countering procedures, and other medically necessary procedures to effectuate and maintain the transition from one sex to another.” ^73 Required hormone therapy may range from infrequent to weekly or even daily depending on one’s physical composition. ^74 Hormone treatments further regulate a range of physiological functions, including one’s “mood, eating, and sleeping.” ^75 Without such therapeutic intervention, transgender personnel can suffer extensive psychological trauma that not only interferes with their well-being, but also the well-being of co-workers or people in close physical proximity. ^76

    Of significance to military service, especially in deployed areas or field training settings, hormone treatments can, and frequently do, result in significant complications. For example, estrogen therapy has resulted in the increased risk of thromboembolic disease, myocardial infarction, breast cancer, abnormal liver function, and fertility problems. ^77 Testosterone therapy likewise results in the increased risk of strokes and heart attacks, abnormal liver function, renal disease, endometrial cancer, and osteoporosis. ^78

    Costs of accommodating the unique needs of transgender servicemembers under a repealed DADT would be monumental, especially considering the price tag accompanying gender reassignment surgery. The costs of hormone therapy, simply in preparation for the operation, can range from $300 to $2,400 per year, ^79 while surgery on just the genitals costs approximately $15,000. ^80 More extensive work on the genitalia, face, and chest may exceed $50,000, solely for those procedures, ^81 exclusive of the psychotherapy required to acclimate to the demands of this tremendous transition. These costs also do not contemplate corrective surgery, which is often required for procedures of this sensitive nature, especially the construction of a prosthetic penis in a female-to-male conversion and treatment for urinary tract infections.^82

    From STRAIGHT TALK: THE IMPLICATIONS OF REPEALING “DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL” AND THE RATIONALE FOR PRESERVING ASPECTS OF THE CURRENT POLICY, starts on pg. 207.

    As people who are backing this policy, are talking about how it is not about the right to fight for the country, but whether or not is cost effective to train a soldier who comes with X medical bills, particularly if they need to fight in active deployment, where the timeline of medical transitio...

    Game of Thrones has attractive folks in it. They put the term "sexposition" into the lexicon, as they frequently would have more boring details pertaining to geography, families, politics, world building in general, delivered when some sort of cheesecake or beefcake was on screen.

    That being said, this is less about people tuning out for attractive actors/actresses, and more about pornhub making use of their particular data set to comment about world or popular culture events. Suddenly when a good chunk of the world is discussing the season primiere of Game of Thrones, they are now also talking about how it intersected with pornhub. I knew they did this type of thing before, easy enough to find this image, from their year in review.
