How does the U.S. economy stack up compared to other countries over history?

The optimal functioning of Democracy depends on educated, well informed citizens. Most Americans are woefully ignorant or they could not have elected as incompetent a chief executive as Donald J. Trump in 2016. One of the goals of this blog is to provide information so that people are better informed of the world around them and can make better decisions about things that affect their own and the mutual welfare of humanity.

Jackie Robinson Day

April 15 marks the day in 1947 when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball. The executive who signed him with the express purpose of combating racism was Branch Rickey, president of the Brooklyn Dodgers. I share a hometown with Branch Rickey — Portsmouth, Ohio — and was always reminded of his legacy because I played high school baseball in Branch Rickey Park (pictured below). To me, Branch Rickey’s role in this story is sweet irony. White supremacy was strong in my home...

Omega 3 Fats Are Beneficial To Sperm I keep hearing about all the benefits of Omega 3 fats in your diet.  There is research showing that saturated fats are bad for sperm.  On the other hand, men should be consuming omega 3 fats like those found in fish. According to this study, these beneficial fats may help sperm. Although this study was done in mice, omega 3's have so many other health benefits, it probably would be a good idea for men trying to conceive to add these fats in their die...

The Source of Candace Owens’ Ahistorical Claims about Hitler and German Nationalism

I will say one thing about Candace Owens: She can stir up attention. On the day she testified before a Congressional panel on white nationalism, she trended on Twitter nearly all day. Much of this attention came via Congressman Ted Lieu’s act of playing a video of Owens opining that Hitler …was a National Socialist, but if Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, okay fine. Lieu then accused Owens of “legitimizing Hitler” when he directed a question about Owens remarks ...

David Barton Goes Full Anti-Vax

Yesterday on Wallbuilders Live, David Barton doubled down on his claim that parts of aborted fetuses are in vaccines. He made that claim last week and after I wrote to refute it, he devoted a whole show to the topic today. His guest for the program was anti-vax biologist Theresa Deisher. Deisher has a PhD in microbiology from Stanford and at one time was a mainstream scientist. Several years ago, she converted to anti-vax ideology and has focused on the theory that vaccines cause autism via the ...

I have posted a number of articles about women and couples who conceive naturally either after having a baby through IVF or after failed IVF.  A recently published study confirms that about 30% of couples will go on to have a natural conception after IVF.  These numbers are certainly encouraging if you are currently undergoing fertility treatments and want to quit or if your fertility treatments failed.   Although I wasn't part of the study, you can count me in as a so called "hopeless ca...
