Twitter adds a subtle correction to a Trump tweet.

A "Live Laugh Love" sign but it's the nuclear waste warning message for future generations

OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD IT'S REAL — Katie Mummah (@nuclearkatie) February 27, 2020 Nuclear semiotics is the discipline of communicating the nature of radioactive waste to people who don't know what it is. How do we tell our distant descendants -- people 10,000 years from now -- to stay away from it? The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico studies the proposals, which include scary earthworks but also a disarming message (belo...

In India, Trump stirs up the competition of gender difference: Women are "great and natural entrepreneurs," and the men had better be very careful, because "They're really good!"

I clipped 19 seconds for you:"We are delighted to be joined as well by dozens of Indian women entrepreneurs who are helping to build your nation's future. They are great and natural entrepreneurs, and I just say to you men: Be very careful — they're really good!"ADDED: Is entrepreneurship innate? Is it a natural part of the human psychology, and if so, is it more predominant in males than in females? Trump is saying that men shouldn't rest on their prejudices and the accomplishments of men over ...

Do the warning passages of Hebrews 6:7-8 and Hebrews 10:27 refer to Christians going to hell?

My book, What is Hell? is now available on Amazon. I am doing a series of podcast studies that focus on some of the content from the book. The studies look at the eight key terms that are often equated with hell, and about a dozen key passages that are thought to teach about hell. If you want to learn the truth about hell and what the Bible actually teaches about hell, make sure you get a copy of my book, What is Hell? Also, if you are part of my discipleship group, there will be an online cours...

"A British climber who died on the slopes of Mount Everest had warned of the dangers of huge queues for the summit just hours before his death."

"Robin Haynes Fisher died after reaching the summit of the world’s highest mountain and is believed to be one of at least seven people to have died on the overcrowded slopes in just nine days. The deaths have sparked concerns over the large numbers of people scaling Everest, with images emerging of large queues up to the summit.... Mr Fisher and a sherpa reportedly reached the summit of Everest at around 8.30am on Saturday and had descended 150 metres when he fell unconscious and could not be re...

It's the Era of That's Not Funny: "After a fake interview of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went viral, its maker said it was satire."

WaPo summons outrage for something that, to me, looks like an old comedy form — editing in new questions to make old answers ridiculous:At Facebook, there's now an "Update: Yes, this is satire created from excerpts of the viral Firing Line interview with Ocasio-Cortez." But, come on, you have to be dumb not to see that Allie's questions were recorded separately and video of Ocasio-Cortez was selected to make her look ridiculous. Or maybe not so dumb, but just firmly embedded in what I've been ca...

"Win Butler (of Arcade Fire) "seems genuinely concerned that people did not get the joke of the promotional campaign, co-created by 'really clever people' from the New Yorker and spoof news site the Onion."

"Had any of it simply appeared on the latter, he argues, its humour would not have been questioned. 'That was what was interesting about it,' he says. 'It seems that by changing the masthead to something real, it changes the context of what the joke is.' Perhaps, in the era of Donald Trump and fake news, the joke becomes a little more hackneyed, a little less funny. 'Some of the critical response to the themes that we were talking about was: We know this already!' he concedes. 'You’re worried ab...

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge orders Starbucks to put a cancer warning on its coffee because of a chemical — acrylamide — produced in the roasting process.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle wrote, "Defendants did not offer substantial evidence to quantify any minimum amount of acrylamide in coffee that might be necessary to reduce microbiological contamination or render coffee palatable... Rather, Defendants argued that acrylamide levels in coffee cannot be reduced at all without negatively affecting safety and palatability.”Courthouse News Service reports.According to court documents, defendants did not dispute that acrylamide was a byp...

When Trump told Ivanka, "I don't want you to drink, boys will take advantage of you...."

The other night we watched this show "Objectified," where the host Harvey Levin interviewed Donald Trump. I don't know if this is a regular show, but the idea is for the interviewee to show various objects in his home and through these objects for us to learn something about the person. Levin isn't really a very good interviewer, and nearly all of the objects were photographs, awards, letters, and invitations, so I'm not recommending this as a show with any real vitality to it. But I was interes...

Fake Legal Websites using Profiles of Real Lawyers

Several publications, including the BBC online, are warning the public to double-check the credentials of lawyers they find on the Internet before giving them any personal banking or credit-card information. There are growing numbers of reports of unscrupulous sites that have copied information about reputable lawyers from highly regarded firms onto their own sites, in order to scam prospective clients. In one case reported on the BBC and elsewhere, the scam involved  gaining access to the credi...
