The U.S. Supreme Court late Wednesday gave the Trump administration permission to enforce its toughest restriction yet on asylum seekers at the southern border
As a result, the government can now refuse to consider a request for asylum from anyone who failed to apply for it in another country after leaving home but before coming here. The order means, for instance, that migrants from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador cannot seek asylum in the U.S. if they didn't first ask for it in Mexico.
National Geographic made a great documentary about the 9/11 attacks called "Inside 9/11 Zero Hour." I made an effort to watch this on youtube every year on September 11, just because I thought it was important to not forget.
The video I used to watch on youtube doesn't seem to be there anymore. There is still video available, but the video quality is not great.
Some people are claiming that the blue shifted light from LED bulbs can cause retina degineration.
"He and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers for decades, so f—him. The Amazon is burning up. I'm glad he's dead, and I hope the end was painful," Maher said.
It is a myth that the Amazon rain forest produces the world's oxygen. Whenever plants are consumed, whether that be by animals or by bacteria due to decay, it takes an equal amount of oxygen to metabolize the plants.
This is a very interesting video.
It would seem impossible for humans to survive billions of year. If we have any descendants billions of years from now, then they would be dramatically different in form and function. They would also have to survive many worldwide extinction events.
Due to plate tectonics coming to an end, the Earth is predicted to be cold, dry and dead in 500 million years. Maybe our more advanced descendants, if they are still around, will find a way to terraform the planet
I think that machine intelligence will eventually replace biological intelligence. I see this happening through our own actions as we slowly modify ourselves. I think that the beginnings of this will start in our lifetimes.
Here is another very interesting video from the same source, called "Last Words." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qig68IuPrbk
Give this three minutes.
Just take a look at the photograph. I think that it is a weird looking library.
Several years ago, analysts were predicting Apple would buy Disney. Steve Jobs served on both boards of directors. Not only could Apple afford to buy Disney, but this would allow Apple to own the entertainment market.
I have seen many videos covering anthropogenic global warming, but this is by far the best one. Patrick Moore says everything I have been saying for years and then some. He does a better job of documenting and graphing the relevant information.
From Alberta's 6th annual "Freedom School" conference, on "Things that Matter: An Agenda for Alberta".
The first 14 minutes are about his background. Then he talks about various environmental issues and finally starts a one hour talk about Climate Change 24 minutes into the video.
Budget phones have gotten pretty powerful. The CPU benchmark on this phone rivals my old desktop computer. When it comes to bencmarks, Apple is usually on top with their own custom CPU's, but Apple seems to want to soak their customers. I think that I would be quite happy with this budget phone, which is plenty powerful.
