    Anti-atheist statutes still foul 8 state constitutions in U.S.

    This week I learned that anti-blasphemy laws aren’t the only statutes U.S. state governments still have on their books to enforce religion on citizens. Constitutional articles in seven states still specifically prohibit atheists from holding public office, and an eighth, Pennsylvania, also, in effect, disallows atheist public officials but with more round-about language. Those states with a direct constitutional prohibition are Arkansas, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, T...

    The US must not flinch in the face of Kim Jong Un's missiles mind trick

    The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is a totalitarian state without parallel. In 2014, a United Nations commission, upon a yearlong investigation of North Korea’s crimes against humanity, determined that the “gravity, scale and nature” of its atrocities “reveal a State that does not have any parallel in the contemporary world.”

    U.S. regulators approve new Silicon Valley stock exchange

    A serial killer at the border – and the women who stood up to him

    When Erika Peña dropped something on the floor of his truck, reached down to pick it up and touched a gun instead, she did not startle. This was Texas – a gun in a truck was not unusual – and she already knew that he needed a firearm for work. Besides, the man driving treated her well, most of the time. There had been one flash of anger when he had broken her phone, but otherwise, she told her mother, he acted “like a gentleman”.

    There was a time when I believed, almost as an article of faith, that with the passage of time, America would age out of racism. What in the world was I thinking? But that is what I told myself in the fall of 1954 — five months after the Supreme Court’s school desegregation decision — when I learned that students attending then-all-white Eastern, Anacostia and McKinley Technical high schools, and several white junior high schools in the District, had staged walkouts to protest the assignme...

    Avengers: Endgame Made Age of Ultron A Better Movie

    Avengers: Endgame poignantly concluded the first 11 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but it also specifically improved Avengers: Age of Ultron. Joe and Anthony Russo's $2-billion blockbuster (and counting) specifically included a time travel adventure to The Avengers, when three Infinity Stones were simultaneously in New York City, but several moments in Endgame also highlighted - and enhanced - Joss Whedon's 2015 sequel.

    Advancements in zero-emission fuel cells could make the technology cheap enough to replace traditional gasoline engines in vehicles, according to researchers at the University of Waterloo. The researchers have developed a new fuel cell that lasts at least 10 times longer than current technology, an improvement that would make them economically practical, if mass-produced, to power vehicles with electricity.

However, Remini saw a case of measles on Scientology’s top vessel as an o...
