There are countless things named after Columbus in the US (a city in Ohio, a few Universities... it's endless).

Gonna have to change them all.

What about British Columbia?

That's two slaps in the face of the indigenous people that once lived there.

It's all coming down.

Posted in: Eyes in the sky: Investors reach for new tools to gauge climate change risk See in context

Long before big data and space exploration, in 8th century Baghdad, a star-gazer known as Masha'allah ibn Athari inspired generations of future astrologers with a theory that the cycles of Jupiter and Saturn predicted global upheaval.

Article is correct in likening climate "science" with astrology.

Easy,

As a white male I can simply self identify as a female and a person of color and then get a raise.

Anybody who has a problem with that is denying my identity.

So, you've never had an injection or any form of vaccination in your whole life?

Not since I've been old enough and brave enough to stand up for myself and say NO!

Kinda didn't have that option when I was 6 months old and was permanently scared on my left shoulder against my will.

There are many ways to serve.

In your country how do the courts differentiate defending property from intimidating and threatening.

In my country, if someone says “Get off my lawn” you have to do so not only as a matter of courtesy but as a requirement of law.

People in my country respect the rights of others.

I do not trust anyone with the sanctity of my body.

No expert truly knows how the human body functions so it‘s impossible for them to be 100% sure that those chemicals won’t cause any long term side effects.

No chemical injections for me, thank you.

That was not a public road.

It was private property.

You can protest on a public street, but you can't protest on someone's private driveway.

Everything named after a person who lived before the 80s is going to have to be renamed eventually.

This won't stop until every last building, park and school is named after some LGBT racial minority.

"Experts" also promised that the Swine Flu vaccine in the 70s was safe.

Countless permanently disabled people found out otherwise.

No Big Pharma chemical injections for me thank you.

Posted in: London police make arrests, seize weapons at illegal parties See in context

London police made seven arrests and seized a firearm and a "Rambo-style" knife at illegal street parties that violated social distancing rules in the early hours of Saturday, a police statement said.

This is intentionally in the first sentence to elicit an image in the reader's mind of some nutcase hooligans running around with knifes.

They're just kids having fun and the media cherry picked one bad apple to make them all seem bad.

Posted in: Cities in Japan recognize 900 LGBT couples since 2015: survey See in context

I don't know what goes on in your family, but you'd be hard-pressed to find two brothers who want to kiss each other on the mouth or go further.

Were in the legislation does it say that kissing on the mouth is required for recognition.

Are you implying that sexless marriages have their recognition revoked because they're not intimate?

Then you agree that same sex couples should be allowed to get married? Wonderful!

I'm advocating that any assortment of paired humans be eligible for the same benefits that LGBT couples are asking for.

Even if a father and son live together, they should get the same benefits.

Why deny them?

Any couple who wishes to get recognized as cohabiting should have to right to do so.

That includes 2 brothers sharing an apartment, 2 college buddies or just roommates who wish to receive recognition.

Why are some pairings excluded?

Equal rights for all!
