Oprah Winfrey for President in 2020.

Cheers.

Since they couldn't stand Obama, can you imagine the reaction to Oprah?

Re: KKK

The continuation of their Political Power in the USA, until the 1960's. Was aided and abetted by the Democrat Party and FDR's New Deal Coalition.

Then in 64 they quit the democrats and backed Wallace. Over the next couple of decades they drifted into the Republican party where today they elected their man to POTUS.

So vacuum, a space entirely devoid of matter, is not a noun as well?

Take a random cubic parsec and you will find matter in it, never mind the virtual particles.

Now with the winter olympics only a month away I can't help but wonder what, if any, precautions are being taken to protect the thousands of visitors that are descending on South Korea. Especially those from the USA and our closest allies.

I assume you mean precautions over and above the normal police crowd control and safety things you would expect.

I'm sure ROK has put in place restrictions on who can enter the country above normal. Other than that likely nothing is being done.

As to military, it appears as if some drills have been canceled. Unknown if these forces that would have been in drills would have been pulled from protection or not, but they are now available.

The past, present and future of SETI, the search for extraterrestrial intelligence

About 2,000 years ago, just before the start of the Common Era, the Romans conquered Spain. The Roman Empire was powered by money, and the currency of the time was silver. Fortunately for the Romans, there were an ample number of silver mines in their new Spanish territory.

It takes a lot of energy to smelt silver into coins, so the Romans cut down vast swaths of Spain's forests to burn the wood for fuel. A byproduct of the smelting process is lead, which the Romans used for plumbing. For the first time, our species was engaged in large-scale industrial manufacturing—and also large-scale pollution. Signs of all this can be found in Greenland ice cores.

Pete Worden is the executive director of Breakthrough Initiatives, which funds efforts to search for life beyond Earth. He recently told me Roman silver mining is arguably the first time humans' impact on the planet was noticeable from outer space.

"If you were sitting at a nearby star and had the ability to take a spectrum of the atmosphere, with technology that we can imagine in the next few decades, you would detect these things that are at least, from our understanding, clearly industrial pollutants," he said.
...
Meanwhile, in the late 1980s, The Planetary Society, NASA and the National Science Foundation helped fund a west coast SETI effort called SERENDIP at the University of California, Berkeley. SERENDIP, as its name implies, looks for serendipitous SETI detections by piggybacking on traditional astronomical observations made by large radio telescopes. The program has undergone many upgrades and relocations over the years, and was still running at Arecibo when the telescope was damaged by Hurricane Maria in September 2017.

SERENDIP originally processed data in real-time, but Berkeley soon began archiving the data and sifting through them using computer algorithms. There were more data available than could be processed using supercomputers, said Dan Werthimer, who is now chief scientist of the Berkeley SETI Research Center. Werthimer and three other engineers and scientists designed a program to allow home computers to help with the data crunching.

"We had this wild and crazy idea to use volunteers to analyze our data, but we took it around to various people, and nobody seemed to think it would ever work," Werthimer told me. "The Planetary Society said, 'Hey this wild, crazy idea? We want to get behind it.' And they gave us the money to launch the project."

In 1999, Berkeley released the result, SETI@home, and since then more than 8 million people have downloaded the program and donated spare computing power to help search for intelligent life. The open-source software, BOINC, on which SETI@home is based, is now used for other projects. This led to what Werthimer calls "the democratization of supercomputing," where users can choose individual research programs to assist.

Andrew Siemion, the Berkeley SETI Research Center director, credits The Planetary Society's SETI@home involvement for helping keep the field alive prior to his arrival at Berkeley as a student in 2004.

"Science is about standing on the shoulders of giants," he said. "Frankly, we would not be here today were it not for the support specifically of the Planetary Society."

The case was dropped because there are too many state of mind proofs beyond a reasonable doubt that a jury has to agree with. Prosecutors have to know when to not waste taxpayer money.
Which is a decision to be made BY a prosecutor, not the investigator. Comey was not empowered NOR qualified to make that determination.
He was both qualified and empowered*, but he didn't make it, a career agent did and because of the nature of the case passed it up for reversal or rubber stamp.

*Too bad JE knows so little about his own government. Beat cops make that decision all the time.

Ya know its funny, they bitch scream and howl when H didn't release classified info on Bengazzi and bitch scream and howl because some low level swamp rat aid sent her e-mail server an e-mail with classified info. Remember it is the person who sent the info to the server that did the crime.


Unless the info was sent on the orders of someone else... Then BOTH are up the creek without a boat.... if for nothing else then 'conspiracy to commit...'.


And besides.... 'low level swamp rat'???

Clinton's deputy chief of staff during her tenure as Sec. of State (not to mention wife of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives)..... swamp rat, sure... low level? hardly.

You have the other problem. To violate you must have known the server wasn't secure. The case was dropped because there are too many state of mind proofs beyond a reasonable doubt that a jury has to agree with. Prosecutors have to know when to not waste taxpayer money.

The weather said they think Mt Washington will get down to -100F, Mars average temp might be warmer at -85F, now that is irony...


Vic, I think the -100 was just a "wind chill" estimate. I'm pretty sure it is impossible for the actual air temperature to get that cold on this planet.

Cold record is -128.6f https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lowest_temperature_recorded_on_Earth
There is the 300 club.

Are the US looking for more trouble in the world?
She is even more xenophobic than Trump is!
Quite possibly the two silliest and most baseless comments I've ever seen.

I can see it now, the Chinese blockade of the West coast and the Russian blockade of the East coast. The EU post Brexit joining the Russian Federation for protection. Mexico and Canada building walls. The world will give the USA the DPRK treatment*. And the USA will be happy because there won't be any immigrants.


*Is Kim or Nikki more xenophobic?

KB did indicate the Windows Kernel was updated.

Yes, it is... Particularly former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch who was head of the DoJ during that time. Another in a list of highly questionable things she is accused of doing... IMO, time for a Court of Law to examine the matter. The Court of Public Opinion does no one any good.

Absent confession, could there be any evidence? Or it is just a huge waste of taxpayer money?

Bannon dismissed the notion of a Trump campaign conspiracy with Russia because the Trump team wasn't competent enough to conduct a conspiracy.
