Isn't going to be evidence, anymore than the American intelligence agencies swearing that Saddam had an active WMD program was.

The Bush admin cherrypicked to support their claims

Thank goodness he only had a knife

Imagine if he got ahold of a gun - the other civilians would not have been able to wrestle him to the ground so quickly

(A gun is a force multiplier - it affords 1 person to take on multiple other persons at the same time)

Give him some time, and his government and the media friendly to it will offer exactly the sort of evidence that the American government and media has that Russia meddled/rigged the American election.

Not unless Brazil's intelligence agencies support it in front of Congress under oath

Everybody already knows what's really happening in Xinjiang

Only China believes what China says what's happening there

The fact that they're so protective of what comes out there illustrates they're trying to hide it

Because otherwise, if what they say is the truth, then they wouldn't be so protective - the truth is nothing to hide about

Posted in: Hollywood tackles toxic masculinity with teen drama 'Waves' See in context

Toxic masculinity is also an issue in Japan, where virtually every social norm reflects the patriarchal nature of the society, and the struggle for equality is endless https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/27/world/asia/japan-gay-marriage.html?action=click&module=News&pgtype=Homepage

Btw, just a little tip for those who aren't familiar with webpage publishing:

Anything from the question mark (?) onwards can be deleted in the URL (such parts are optional) - that should make for a shorter URL

More Hollywood trash. Just ignore it.

This is produced by an indie

Ya guys haven't even heard of the studio

It was released this month by A24, the indie production house behind Oscar-winner "Moonlight," with which "Waves" shares its setting and several themes.

So far, the best habitat to find Starship’s six-wheelers are relatively confined spaces such as college campuses; the University of Houston and the University of Wisconsin-Madison rolled them out this fall.

The univ students are using them to get their breakfast on the way to morning classes (the bots can meet them on the way)

Clean Russians can take part and earn glory

The state, not so much - until they can clean house

In an interview with AFP last month, RUSADA's chief Yuri Ganus appeared resigned to Russia being handed an Olympic ban, accusing unidentified Moscow authorities of handing over falsified lab data to WADA.

They can start with those unidentified Moscow authorities who handed the falsified lab data

The people of Hong Kong have spoken - and they've spoken against authoritarianism

They don't want a dictator dictating their lives for them

On the "1 country, 2 systems" policy, the Chinese government focuses too much on the "1 country" part and not enough on the "2 systems" part

"2 systems" means not turning HK into Little Beijing

Posted in: Iran net outage first to effectively isolate a whole nation See in context

Iranians figured out how the CIA has been instigating protests (Arab Spring, HK, Ukraine, Bolivia etc.) via the internet and wisely took action.

Governments should first look at the mirror for the problems their people's face, before blaming it on outside forces.

Governments who are afraid to look at the mirror and can't even look at themselves in the eye are weak.

You have to remember carbon makes up no more than 400 parts per 1 million, there's no way that's gonna cause a problem.

That is incorrect.

Remember, ozone makes up no more than 0.3 parts per million - and it can very much cause huge problems.

Remember, it's not the concentration that matters - it's what they do.

For example, if you're fed certain molecules that just make up 400 parts per million in your body could still kill ya.

Tom Hanks Finds Out He's Related to Mr. Rogers After Filming 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood'


They say that everyone's separated by six degrees of separation. This statement is very literal for 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood' star Tom Hanks. After playing Fred Rogers, ancestry.com revealed that Rogers and Hanks are actually related.

"Fred Rogers and Tom Hanks are sixth cousins sharing the same 5x great-grandfather, Johannes Mefford, who immigrated from Germany to America in the 18th century. Johannes raised a family of patriots; three of his sons (including Tom Hanks’ and Fred Rogers’s ancestors) served in the Revolutionary War," the genealogy site detailed in a statement," Ancestry.com sited.
