Climate change is ‘not as bad as we thought’ say scientists | UK | News | Express.co.uk
"CLIMATE change is likely to be markedly less severe than forecast, a study claimed yesterday.

It predicted that the impact could be up to 45 per cent less intense than is widely accepted.
...It is based on analysing the warming effect of greenhouse gases and other drivers of climate change, from the mid 19th century until 2016.
It forecast that future warming will be between 30 per cent and 45 per cent lower than suggested by simulations carried out by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel one Climate Change."

CIS: Immigrants on Welfare Tripled Since 2007 | NumbersUSA:
Image result for immigrants living in households on food stamps"A recent report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reveals that the rising level of education among new immigrants in the U.S. has done very little to relieve increasing poverty levels for new arrivals.
The report indicates that in 2017 the number of new immigrants living in households on food stamps grew from 4%in 2007 to 13%t in 2017 -- three times more than a decade before.
...Additionally, the percentage of new immigrants on Medicaid grew from 6% in 2007 to 17% in 2017 -- an increase of 11 percentage points.
Though the percentage of Americans on Medicaid also saw a slight increase of 9%, the study showed that new immigrants are two times more likely to live in poverty than those born in the U.S, regardless of increased education levels among new arrivals..."

LIBERTY REVIEW

Light of the World

By Tammy Derouin

I had the wonderful opportunity of being involved in a production of Godspell back when I was in high school. The thought of being on stage absolutely terrified me so I was not part of the cast. I found my comfort zone working behind the scenes. I had no idea how much my experience in the drama department and specifically the production of Godspell, would impact my life.
Image result for flickr commons images Candle Light

What seemed like a life consuming commitment at the time was over and gone forever in a blink of an eye. It was a time of new challenges, struggles and accomplishments. Many of the experiences would serve as stepping stones to understanding how to handle future challenging circumstances. They would include the value of surrounding myself with good people, accepting, facing and overcoming challenges, and the reinforcement of foundational beliefs.

At the time, I was simply enjoying the excitement of being entrusted with a new level of responsibility. I was in charge of every piece of equipment or furnishing (props) on the stage. The schedule, much like the director, was very demanding. The question became, was the end result worth such intensity and personal sacrifice? Did I believe in what I was doing? Was it worth my time and effort? I knew the answer was yes but it didn't really sink in until we stood and looked at each other after the curtain fell for the last time. I would carry those memories and many of life lessons with me for the rest of my life.

Friendships formed, and in some cases, still remain to this day. The importance of being surrounded by good God-fearing people, who were not only caring and dependable but ethical and honorable, has resonated throughout my life. The Golden Rule has always been part of my life, my beliefs, but learning what truly makes the rule so golden, seems to find its way back to this experience. Challenges are indeed challenging, among many other descriptive words. As long as you are breathing, you can expect to be challenged. How you react and treat others, despite the difficult times, not only affects you but every single person around you.......

On pizza regulations, Trump slices differently than his own FDA commissioner

On pizza regulations, Trump slices differently than his own FDA commissioner
"As the owner of 18 Domino’s stores in Texas, I do not cut corners, whether on pizzas or complying with the law. 
Unfortunately, on May 7 the law will become especially burdensome and unhelpful to my customers. That day, President Trump’s FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb will implement a nationwide, Obama-era menu-labeling rule requiring restaurants with 20 or more locations to post in-store menu boards listing the calories of every item sold.
...First, the rule fails to account for how my customers actually order pizza in the real world out here in West Texas. Unlike other food establishments that have static menu options, pizza is highly variable: Domino’s offers consumers 34 million different combinations of pizza.
Can you imagine yourself in a small store in Midland or Odessa, Texas, plastered with menu boards, trying to calculate all of these possible combinations?
Image result for im from the government...Second, the costs of the rule to my employees and me could be excessive, with the greatest beneficiaries of these costs being trial lawyers. 
This is because Gottlieb’s rule exposes my employees and me to civil and criminal penalties of up to one year in prison and/or a $100,000 fine for inadvertent violations.
That means if one of us accidentally tops a pizza with too much pepperoni or cheese, or is a little heavy-handed with the tomato sauce on a given day, we could be headed to prison..."

13 “Based On True Story” Movies That Are Totally Inaccurate – Goliath

13 “Based On True Story” Movies That Are Totally Inaccurate – Goliath
Sully?!! Say it ain't so!
9. Sully (2016)
The real-life story of Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s safely landing his damaged plane in the Hudson River was intense and dramatic, but also fairly basic. 
Banal stories about everyday heroism don’t fly in Hollywood, so literally everything about the Sully movie, aside from the plane landing, is 100% fiction.
Director Clint Eastwood needed a villain to make the movie work, so the filmmakers invented an evil traffic board who desperately wants to nail Sully for negligence.
They claim Sully might’ve been drunk, that one of his engines actually had power, and that flight simulations showed he should’ve easily made it to the airport. 
Sully fights tirelessly to convince them he did all he could do and eventually, the board concludes the pilot did, in fact, do the right thing.
In real life, none of that happened. 
The traffic board almost immediately sided with Sully, as did everyone in the country who honored him."

Green Mess: Thousands Of Turbines To Close | Climate Dispatch

Green Mess: Thousands Of Turbines To Close | Climate Dispatch
"As older turbines see subsidies expire, thousands are expected to be taken offline due to lack of profitability.
Green nightmare: Wind park operators eye shipping thousands of tons of wind turbine litter to third world countries – and leaving their concrete rubbish in the ground.
...This is yet another blow to Germany’s Energiewende (transition to green energies). A few days ago, I reported here how the German solar industry had seen a monumental jobs’ bloodbath and investments have been slashed to a tiny fraction of what they once were.
Over the years, Germany has made approvals for new wind parks more difficult as the country reels from an unstable power grid and growing protests against the blighted landscapes and health hazards.
...Wind turbine dump in Africa?
So what happens to the old turbines that will get taken offline?
...So naturally, there’s a huge incentive for German wind park operators to dump the old contraptions onto third-world countries, and to let them deal later with the garbage.
Sweeping garbage under the rug...
Already wind park operators are circumventing this huge expense by only removing the top two meters of the concrete and steel base, and then hiding the rest with a layer of soil, the Baseler writes.
In the end, most of the concrete base will remain as garbage buried in the ground, and the above-ground turbine litter will likely get shipped to third-world countries..."

European human rights chiefs order British press NOT to reveal when terrorists are Muslims  | Daily Mail Online:

  • European human rights chiefs order the British press NOT to reveal when terrorists are Muslims in crackdown on freedom of speech
  • Report out from the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance
  • Blames increase in hate crimes and racism in UK on the 'worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in newspapers'
  • Claims Islamophobia rises when media reports when terrorists are Muslim

"European human rights chiefs have told the British press it must not report when terrorists are Muslim. The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI), chaired by Christian Ahlund (file picture) said discussions over immigration had caused increasing 'xenophobia'.
The recommendations came as part of a list of 23 meddling demands to Theresa May’s government on how to run the media in an alarming  threat to freedom speech.
The report, drawn up by the Council of Europe's human rights watchdog, blamed the recent increase in hate crimes and racism in the UK on the 'worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians', although the research was done before the EU referendum campaign had even begun..."

"AN EXPOSÉ ON BRAVE FIRE FIGHTERS RUSHING INTO BURNING BUILDINGS: With “Inside the Intense, Combative World of Covering the Trump White House,” Variety, which used to reserve its attention strictly for the deliberately fictitious aspects of the entertainment industry, turns its sights on a different group of television “entertainers.” 
Note this passage, from the bravest firefighter of them all. (Just ask him):
Image result for CNN Liberal Bias“There is that natural tension that exists between the press and the people we were covering, but it was never like this,” Acosta says. “We were never called ‘fake news.’ We were never called ‘the enemy of the people,’ and that just created a totally different climate and environment that we are all trying to make sense of and trying to figure out: How do we cover the news in that kind of toxic environment?”

  • Does Jim Acosta actually not know that he works for CNN, whose former chief executive Eason Jordan penned an essay in 2003 for the New York Times titled “The News We Kept To Ourselves,” where he admitted that his network created fake news out of Iraq simply to have the “Live From Baghdad” imprimatur on the Chyron? 
  • And that Jordan resigned two years later from the network after it was discovered that he claimed at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that the US military was deliberately targeting journalists for assassination in Iraq?
  • More recently, as far as being called “the enemy of the people,” does Acosta not know or care that employees in multiple divisions of Time-Warner-CNN-HBO have a yen for doxxing anonymous Americans?
  • Also in that same column, as T. Becket Adams of the Washington Examiner tweets, the Washington Post’s Ashley Parker, “The woman who screamed ‘DO YOU FEEL THAT YOUR GAFFES HAVE OVERSHADOWED YOUR FOREIGN TRIP???’ at Romney during his visit to a Polish war memorial says she now has to — get this — QUADRUPLE check her work because of the ‘fake news environment.’ 

These are dark times indeed.”
