There is also substantial disagreement about who would ultimately gain. Republican leaders argue that the substantial tax cuts for business would eventually result in wage increases. Critics counter that there is little historical evidence for that claim.
Why is this a big problem? Because a lot of readers are being misguided as to the true nature of the serious predicament we are facing. Half of the emails that I receive are from readers who are bringing up doubts based on other analysts’ faulty analysis and misinformation. Thus, it takes a great deal of effort to provide the real facts and data to counteract the damage being done by certain individuals, even those with good intentions.
The Coddling of the American Mind (blackeagle)
This new climate is slowly being institutionalized, and is affecting what can be said in the classroom, even as a basis for discussion. During the 2014–15 school year, for instance, the deans and department chairs at the 10 University of California system schools were presented by administrators at faculty leader-training sessions with examples of microaggressions. The list of offensive statements included: “America is the land of opportunity” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.”
At first, O’Neill assumed the bill was a mistake. Her daughter hadn’t needed her ears pierced, and O’Neill would never have agreed to it if she’d known the cost. She complained in phone calls and in writing.
The hospital wouldn’t budge. In fact, O’Neill said it dug in, telling her to pay up or it would send the bill to collections. The situation was “absurd,” she said.
CME Group Inc.’s contracts will debut Dec. 18. Cboe Global Markets Inc. didn’t announce a start date. Both got the green light Friday after going through a process called self-certification — a pledge to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission that the products don’t run afoul of the law. The news pushed bitcoin’s price higher.
First step: assault himself with duct tape. Next, he would spread a DNA plasmid containing the enzyme tyrosinase over his skin in order to spur his body’s production of melanin and (fingers crossed) persuade a small patch of skin on his left forearm to turn a slightly darker shade of pasty-pale. At least theoretically, the plasmid should sink into his skin, penetrate his skin cells and cause the cells to begin overexpressing the tyrosinase gene, increasing the amount of skin color-causing melanin in that one circle-shaped spot. He was riffing off a paper he’d read in which scientists used a similar topical gene delivery method to give a different gene to mice.
As a whole, Manhattan’s rats are genetically most similar to those from Western Europe, especially Great Britain and France. They most likely came on ships in the mid-18th century, when New York was still a British colony. Combs was surprised to find Manhattan’s rats so homogenous in origin. New York has been the center of so much trade and immigration, yet the descendants of these Western European rats have held on.
The Big Melt (drbost)
Last December was the driest in 150 years of record keeping, and the flakes that did manage to fall didn’t stay around long. The snow line—the point on a slope at which it’s high enough and thus cold enough for snow to stick—is about 3,900 ft., which is a historic high in some areas. But worse lies ahead as scientists predict melt even at nearly 10,000 ft. by the end of the century.
