The Science of Male and Female: What God Teaches Through Nature

One of the biggest challenges to Christians who would argue for a notion like “biblical manhood and womanhood” is that the very idea sounds strange to modern audiences. It often sounds like Christians are trying to impose a sort of playacting or subjective role-playing on others. Yet being a man or a woman shouldn’t be a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, hidden inside an enigma. No, if “biblical manhood and womanhood” is going to genuinely persuade people today, Christians have to show that it’...

West Marin wildfire evacuation threat lifts as smoky tint descends

Evacuation warnings in West Marin were lifted Wednesday afternoon as the Woodward fire in Point Reyes National Seashore nears total containment. Meanwhile, smoke from wildfires elsewhere mixed with a thick marine layer blocking the sun, turning the sky a doomsday orange throughout Marin and the Bay Area. “It’s overcast with smoke over the entire state,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Drew Peterson. “It’s just a complete smoke-out.” The view from "Mount Vision" near Point Reyes per ...

Unprecedented smoke layer darkens Bay Area skies as massive wildfires burn

Smoke from massive wildfires burning throughout the western United States blotted out the sun across the Bay Area and much of Northern California on Wednesday morning, casting skies in an orange glow that seemed like the stuff of science fiction and scrambling weather forecasts that couldn’t account for the unprecedented blanket over the atmosphere. The darkness forced drivers to turn their headlights on and triggered streetlights that illuminated sidewalks at noon. It dropped temperatures on wh...

Vampire Virus – review

Director: Charlie Steeds Release date: 2020 Contains spoilers Also called After Dark, there was something about this film. Shot, I understand, in the UK but set in America the filmmakers did a good job at making it look like it was shot where set but that did lead to a limited number of sets and that produced its own issues. The film started, however, in Romania (or, in a long corridor allegedly in Romania). In that corridor a male doctor passes by a female colleague, Izabella (Jéssica Alonso)....

Prince Harry a drug kingpin, Bill Clinton's latest sex scandal, and escaping Scientology, in this week's dubious tabloids

National newspapers in Britain traditionally call August 'The Silly Season,' the month when news is so slow that even the most ludicrous of stories will sometimes be used to fill a hole on a page. It's the Silly Season that led to a dead carp in Northamptonshire being memorialized on the front page of The Times in 2009, the front page exposé about a donkey forced to parasail over a Russian beach reported in The Sun the following year, and reports of the German cow on the lam from an aba...

Ranking NHL Teams By Goaltenders

Now that the 2019-20 NHL season is over and the Stanley Cup playoffs are in full swing, it’s time to rank the teams by position once again. Starting with the goaltenders since that position seems the most solidified on paper across the league as of today. When it comes to ranking goaltenders, starters still carry the most weight despite the fact it’s becoming a two-goalie league, and positional depth is more important than ever before. With that in mind, in the first of a four-part seri...

Show Not Tell: Why I Am Declining to Participate in a Runnymede Society Debate

I was recently invited to participate in a Runnymede Society debate against Asher Honickman—a co-founder of the Society—on “the future of legal education and curriculum.” I paused. I consulted. I reflected. And now, I am declining that invitation. But I want to explain why. As a former debater and mooter, I love to argue. But as a legal scholar—and especially, a scholar of critical race theory—I am mindful of power and its inseverability from the conversations we engage in. Thinking about power...

Original Jurors React To Scott Peterson Death Row Reversal

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Scott Peterson is off death row after the California Supreme Court ruled sentencing was unfair and jury selection was impartial.

She says removing the death sentence puts him one step closer towards freedom. “We truly did believe that he should be acquitted,” Yeretsian said. John Guinasso was juror number eight during the Scott Peterson trial. He said, “to overturn that, I’m surprised and disappointed because t...

The court was set to hand down its decision at 10 a.m. In arguments before the justices in June, Peterson’s attorney claimed widespread media attention and errors in jury selection did not allow his client to get a f...

Peterson wins MLB debut, Mets beat Red Sox 8-3

J.D. Davis banged a two-run homer off the Pesky Pole, and left-hander David Peterson pitched 5 2/3 innings to win his major league debut and lead the New York Mets to an 8-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night. The Mets swept the two-game series and sent the Red Sox to their fourth consecutive loss. The 2017 first-round draft pick then struck out J.D. Martinez - getting the ball as a souvenir - and retired Rafael Devers on a groundout to end the inning.

In overnight orders, justices allow federal execution to proceed

In the early hours this morning, after a flurry of last-minute filings, a divided Supreme Court cleared the way for federal executions to resume for the first time in nearly 20 years.

Adrian Peterson re-set the running back market when he signed a seven-year, $96 million contract with the Vikings in 2011.

The Outsider – season 1 – review

Director: Various First Aired: 2020 Contains spoilersI recently discovered that the Stephen King novel the Outsider is, at heart, a vampire novel. I then discovered that it was filmed as a 10-episode series by HBO and is available on VoD. Now, I will say that the lore on this is a tad different to normal and that there is both a flesh consumption and energy vampire aspect to the evil at the heart of the series. There are tropes played with as well (and to examine those I’m afraid there will hav...
