The Discovery Institute’s True Raison d’être and Why We Need to Be Deeply Concerned by Jason Miller "In 1998, members of a Seattle nonprofit think tank drafted a secret five-year plan with an ambitious goal: to "defeat scientific materialism" and "replace materialistic explanations with the theistic understanding that nature and human beings are created by God." Discovery Institute, a Seattle-based think tank which champions socially conservative causes, has become heavily (...)

End of Moore’s Law and US /MSFT Bullying on World Trade

Please scroll through the illustrations now to actually see the point of this article. You live under Moore’s Law whether you know it or not. (See "MOORE’S LAW ENDING" GRAPH.) You will know — feel, like an earthquake — when it ends. Your computer and economy depend on Moore’s Law, which says the maximum number of transistors on an IC chip doubles every 2 years. (See EXPONENTIAL-GROWTH GRAPH.) Herein, I predict that the ultimate number of transistors on a (...)

Bush ’out of touch’ on stem cells
By : US - Monday July 24, 2006
2 comments
Scientists have reacted with anger to US President George W Bush’s decision to veto a bill allowing federal funding for new embryonic stem cell research. They argue it will damage a promising field of medical research. Leading researchers labelled Mr Bush "hypocritical", "out of touch" and "selfish" over his decision not to sign into law a bill approved by Congress. Mr Bush argued that the law "crossed a moral boundary that our decent society needs to respect". Polls suggest most (...)

Editorial: Lives On Line
By : Editorial - Sunday July 9, 2006
Editorial: Lives On Line 9 July 2006 Engineers at NASA are not expected to reveal their conclusions about possible lethal damage to the space shuttle Discovery’s heat shield until later today at the earliest. There is understandably considerable concern that protective foam, again seen breaking away at launch from the first stage rocket, may have damaged the shuttle’s heat shield. It was just such a mishap that led to the destruction of the Columbia upon re-entry in 2003. (...)

Housed on a former military base in Havana, the Latin American School of Medical Sciences trains  students from all over Latin America to be doctors, free of charge.

Polar bears drown as ice shelf melts
By : Will Iredale - Thursday December 22, 2005
by Will Iredale SCIENTISTS have for the first time found evidence that polar bears are drowning because climate change is melting the Arctic ice shelf. The researchers were startled to find bears having to swim up to 60 miles across open sea to find food. They are being forced into the long voyages because the ice floes from which they feed are melting, becoming smaller and drifting farther apart. Although polar bears are strong swimmers, they are adapted for swimming close to the shore. (...)

What’s Wrong With Intelligent Design as Science?

An intensifying battle over intelligent design (ID) to be taught in science classes has been emerging across the United States, alarming scientists and educators who consider ID as a political ploy to repackage religion under the guise of “alternative science” to undermine the scientific theory of evolution. Policymakers in 24 states are weighing proposals to introduce ID in their public school curricula. Whether ID is a religious belief or a scientific theory is at the heart of (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
