Alabama students speak out on abortion ban: ‘I’m not planning on living here after I graduate’

The near-total abortion ban passed by the Alabama Legislature and signed into law this week was a major topic of conversation among students at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Trump's treasury secretary 'breaks law' by refusing to hand over president's tax returns for investigation

The Trump administration has been accused of breaking the law after the US treasury secretary refused to provide Congress with the president’s tax returns. In the latest stand-off between the US government and Democrats on Capitol Hill, Steven Mnuchin said on Monday he was turning down the request from the Ways and Means Committee as it lacked a “legitimate legislative purpose”.“Out of respect for the deadlines previously set by the committee, and consistent with our commitment to a prompt respo...

NFL defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's college degree withheld for $1 debt

Chicago Bears defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix tweeted Thursday that the University of Alabama is holding his degree, which he earned in 2018, over a $1 unpaid debt. It's unclear why Clinton-Dix owes Alabama a single dollar but he should have no problem finding the pocket change as he recently signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Bears in the offseason.

The Day the Dinosaurs Died

It’s only Monday, but I’m confident this will be my favorite read of the week. Since 2012, paleontologist Robert DePalma has been excavating a site in North Dakota that he thinks is “an incredible and unprecedented discovery”. What’s potentially so special about this site? Fossils from dinosaurs and other animals from thousands of years before the asteroid impact are very hard to come by, leading some to believe that dinosaurs died out before the impact, not because of it. DePalma believes the s...

White Activism Is Crucial In The Wake of Right-Wing Terrorism

However, even a brief glimpse at comments on social media confirms that among the outpouring of sadness and shock, there are, indeed, numerous sick individuals who glory ...

Trump Ignores ‘Gathering Momentum’ Of Far-Right Violence Worldwide

In the immediate aftermath of the Christchurch mosque attacks, President Donald Trump said only a “small group of people that have very, very serious problems” adhere to white nationalist ideology. But experts who study far-right extremism say that the Trump administration is ignoring the clear and present danger posed by racist violence. Though inadequate and inconsistent tracking of these crimes makes it more difficult to accurately assess them, experts told TPM, the numbers that do exist s...

Human-driven climate change meets "gold standard" of scientific certainty

While it's difficult to find people who deny climate change is happening, some still argue that humans are not climate change's primary cause.By applying peer-reviewed statistical methods to 40 years' worth of satellite data, researchers have determined that the evidence of human-driven climate change has passed the gold standard of scientific certainty: the five-sigma level.This threshold is used in particle physics to determine the existence of new particles; now, it's being used to definitive...
