How a mid-size construction firm used political influence, litigation, and media stunts — and secured $2 billion in Trump border wall contracts

Tommy Fisher appearing on "The Ingraham Angle" in March 2018 as part of a media blitz to promote his wall design. Fox News/YouTube Fisher Sand & Gravel has secured almost $2 billion worth of contracts to build parts of President Donald Trump's planned southern border wall. The company's prototype was publicly rejected in 2018, but after a mix of lobbying, media appearances, and pressure from Trump himself, it got the contracts anyway. Business Insider analysed Fisher's track record, and fo...

‘Radium Girls’ Review: Well-Meaning but Pallid 1920s Drama About the Industrial Radium Cover-Up

The half-life of radium-226, the toxic isotope touted as a miracle cure-all in the early 20th century and used in phosphorescent paint, is around 1,600 years. That of “Radium Girls,” the David-and Goliath story of a handful of young women taking Big Radium to court in the 1920s, is presumably much shorter. In the two-and-a-half […]

Proposition 16 solves for a problem that may not actually exist

This year, California voters are being asked to vote on an initiative, Proposition 16, that would again make race an explicit factor in public employment, contracting, and college admissions. This effort comes over twenty years after Californians outlawed the use of affirmative action — or the preferencing of race, ethnicity, or gender — in these processes. Nearly all of California’s political heavyweights, from vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris to Gov. Gavin Newsom, have endorsed the meas...

UCLA TE Greg Dulcich has teammates singing his praises

Many tight ends are battling for reps at a position UCLA coach Chip Kelly says he will use as aggressively as he has in the past. When wide receiver Kyle Philips was asked about the tight ends the Bruins will employ this season, the player that the redshirt sophomore receiver singled out and the compliments he paid were striking. UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich’s 20-yard touchdown in the third quarter of Saturday’s game against San Diego State capped a 14-play, 4-minute, 38-second drive. It was ...

11 Baked Pasta Dishes to Keep You Warm All Winter Long

As the weather gradually cools off, it’s high time to reacquaint yourself with your old friend the oven and serve up some baked pasta. It’s comfort food at its finest that can also fit the bill of make-ahead and big batch, certainly welcome features in this day and age. But the main reason to go al forno is because it tastes so good. A blast of heat coaxes even more flavor out of the sauce while the pasta gets delightfully crispy at the edges.

Supreme Court nominee Barrett was trustee for private schools with anti-gay policies

By MICHELLE R. SMITH and MICHAEL BIESECKER | Associated Press Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett served for nearly three years on the board of private Christian schools that effectively barred admission to children of same-sex parents and made it plain that openly gay and lesbian teachers weren’t welcome in the classroom.

Is Flying Safe With COVID-19?

? Is Flying Safe With COVID-19? Is flying safe with a COVID-19 pandemic still troubling the world? This is an important question. Carol and I have not been on an airplane since the onset of the COVID-19  coronavirus pandemic. We have no empirical science behind our decision.  It simply seemed better safe than sorry. Further, our decision seemed the right thing to do when we began to see certain airlines filling all available seats.  Packed in a plane during a COVID-19 pandemic? No thanks! ...

Opinion: My brother didn't get Covid-19, but he was a victim of it anyway

As a sibling to someone who overdosed at the start of the Covid-19 crisis, I'm reminded every day that our national conversation ignores the uncounted victims of the pandemic. Victims like my brother, David, who passed away on March 24 in Orange County, California. While his death certificate states "acute polydrug intoxication due to the combined effects of heroin [and other drugs]" as his cause of death, my brother is another tragedy of this moment.

How 2 million puzzles a month are made in the middle of a pandemic

During the pandemic, many people stuck at home picked up puzzling, causing an estimated 300% spike in demand for companies like Buffalo Games, the largest puzzle manufacturer in North America. But just as demand was taking off in March, the manufacturing facility in Buffalo, New York, was shut down because it wasn't deemed an essential service.  Once the factory was able to reopen in May, it ran nonstop to make 2 million puzzles a month — double what it normally does.

The Moon

For some time I have considered there being 4 proofs of God. I've alluded to them in several posts, one in particular reaching out to atheists. This site, along with Psalm 19, got me thinking about whether the moon offers a 5th proof of God. Consider this excerpt: The Moon is unique in the solar system in its large relative size compared with the Earth. The Moon appears from the Earth to be the same size as the sun , in perfect artistic symmetry, unlike any known other planet-moon system....
