“This rock structure is not only surreal -- it's real. The reason it's not more famous is that it is, perhaps, smaller than one might guess: the capstone rock overhangs only a few meters. Even so, the King of Wings outcrop, located in New Mexico, USA, is a fascinating example of an unusual type of rock structure called a hoodoo. Hoodoos may form when a layer of hard rock overlays a layer of eroding softer rock. *Click image for larger size.* Figuring out the details of incorporating this hoodoo into a night-sky photoshoot took over a year.

Educational Sabotage

Walter E. Williams at rss - 24 minutes ago
[image: educational-sabotage] The new discipline imposed on public schools is called restorative justice.

The Impossibility of Satire?

Yours truly was at the last Sociology Research Seminar Series at the University of Derby. On this occasion our speak was Simon Speck, also of Derby. His paper, 'The Cynical Image: The Critical Potential of the Political Cartoon in the Age of Self-Satirising Authority' took a look at how the powerful have absorbed the bite of satire and transformed it into something that helps legitimise them, and whether using humour to attack those interests was still possible.

The Chinese Are Now Having A Debate On What Should Be Their Ties With North Korea

War News Updates Editor at War News Updates - 16 hours ago
*Hemant Adlakha, Japan Times*: *North Korea sparks debate in China* Earlier this month, China voiced its unhappiness with North Korea for firing four Scud missiles into the Sea of Japan. Beijing had suspended all coal imports from its neighbor earlier in February. Pyongyang responded by accusing Beijing of “dancing to the tune of the U.S.” This was not the first time North Korea had thumbed its nose at China. However, Beijing was in for a surprise when several Chinese strategic affairs experts went up in arms and demanded that China “abandon” North Korea. In recent times, neither ... more »

Ben Bernanke on Negative Interest Rates

Now that the Federal Reserve has made another tentative and infinitesimally small increase in its benchmark interest rate, a blog posting by former Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke, takes a fascinating look at what may lie ahead for the Fed, particularly when it comes to negative interest rates, the monetary policy choice-of-the-day for some of the world's most influential central bankers. Let's take a look at the rationale that he uses to defend his position on the use of negative interest rates as part of the Fed's arsenal of monetary weapons.

Today, Donald Trump signs an executive order to rollback Barack Obama's environmental protection policies. Last week he re-started the Keystone XL pipeline. The pipeline, Ross Pelot writes, is another Trumpian pipedream: Keystone’s ultimate rejection by the Obama White House never had anything to do with the environment, of course. A 2015 State Department assessment stated that “approval or denial of any one crude oil transport project, including (Keystone XL), is unlikely to significantly impact the rate of extraction in the oil sands”.

Why the politics of the future is technology and technology is the future of politics

Ethical Technology - 21 hours ago
Technology drives change. And, by definition, change turns the world upside down. So it takes a perfectly good blue-blood nobleman and turns him into a pauper. It takes a king and, at best, makes him a ceremonial figurehead with no real power. It takes a shepherd and makes him a laborer, hopefully a member of the middle-class or, occasionally, a capitalist. And so, in the end, technology, as a bringer of change, is about politics. Because, as my undegraduate textbook defined it, politics is about “who gets what, from whom, under what conditions, and for what purpose.” https://ieet.... more »
