>It was a single-story, three-bedroom ranch house on a quiet residential street in a northern stretch of Jacksonville, Florida. Aaron Fraser had not lived inside since he was 4 years old, and the four walls held plenty of ugly memories and unresolved questions. But in December 2014, after the 24-year-old took possession of the house, he and his brother-in-law rolled up their sleeves for a renovation.

>According to the Florida Times-Union, the two men began by smashing apart a swimming pool in the back with a rented excavator. At one point, the machine cracked a large concrete slab near an outdoor shower. Aaron began hacking at the pieces with a sledgehammer. Below in the dirt, he found a plastic bag, and from inside he pulled something out. It was a coconut, he thought.

>“Why would someone bury a coconut in a bag?” Aaron asked his brother-in-law, according to News4Jax.

>Then, the men noticed the teeth and eye sockets. It was a skull.

Christianity grows in Syrian town once besieged by Islamic State
John Davison
KOBANI, Syria (Reuters) - A community of Syrians who converted to Christianity from Islam is growing in Kobani, a town besieged by Islamic State for months, and where the tide turned against the militants four years ago.

The converts say the experience of war and the onslaught of a group claiming to fight for Islam pushed them toward their new faith. After a number of families converted, the Syrian-Turkish border town’s first evangelical church opened last year.

Islamic State militants were beaten back by U.S. air strikes and Kurdish fighters at Kobani in early 2015, in a reversal of fortune after taking over swaths of Iraq and Syria. After years of fighting, U.S.-backed forces fully ended the group’s control over populated territory last month.

Though Islamic State’s ultra-radical interpretation of Sunni Islam has been repudiated by the Islamic mainstream, the legacy of its violence has affected perceptions of faith.

>inb4 they start waging jihad in the name of Jesus Christ
Kind of weird they claim to follow Jesus’s teachings even though Jesus is actually part of Islam as well
>Kurdish Muslims convert to Evangelical Christianity in town destroyed by ISIS
they literally select the most retarded anti-christian denomination out of them all.
evangelical Christianity is appealing because the preacher has a lot of freedom. There are so many sermons and content out there to draw from, so these Kurdish preachers can lift sermons and inspirational stories to make their flock feel good about themselves.
Also to milk millions of dollars, pay no taxes, and have political sway over large groups of people

So you admit you can't think of a proper argument
Al Qaeda is a conservative group based on their goals.
So it would be more proper to call 9/11 a Right Wing terrorist attack.
The right wing media's latest smear campaign is backfiring greatly.

Pelosi is not only 100% behind Omar.

But she's making hey out of the Trump's attempt to have his followers assassinate her by posting doctored videos.

Russia's largest aluminum maker is investing in a Kentucky aluminum rolling mill just months after sanctions against the company were lifted, Bloomberg News reported Monday.

United Co. Rusal, whose largest shareholder is billionaire Oleg Deripaska, reportedly intends to invest $200 million into the plant being built by Braidy Industries Co.

The agreement, which is set to run for 10 years, would turn Braidy into Rusal’s biggest customer and give the Russian company a foothold into the United States' rolled-aluminum market, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Rusal would own a 40 percent stake in the Braidy unit that will operate the mill, according to the Journal.

Rusal faced sanctions from the U.S. that effectively barred it from the global financial systems because of its ties to Deripaska.

The Trump administration agreed to lift sanctions on Rusal after the Russian oligarch agreed to give up control, though he still owns the largest stake in the company.

The billionaire aluminum magnate remains under U.S. sanctions, which were part of a series of penalties against Russia over its meddling in the 2016 election.

Deripaska has denied the accusations and sued to get sanctions on him reversed.

It's right in your face and you still don't care.

I hope that at the very least the Mueller Report will lay out conclusively that we were attacked and that it was by Russia. The level of repetition we have to go to in order to sink dumb shit.
Muh Russia
>I hope that at the very least the Mueller Report will lay out conclusively that we were attacked and that it was by Russia.
It did, the problem is Trump and the Republicans have made the Mueller Report to be only about him so the media doesn't care.
Really. And msm and progessives never said "Trump colluded with the Russians" or Trump was Putin's puppet. IThat was the whole basis of Muellers report.
Yeah all of the enlightened liberals never focused at all on what they thought was Trump's role in the attack on our elections
I never heard them throw around terms like treason or Putin's cockholster before so it strikes me as a complete surprise they are focusing on that topic now of all times.

Human intelligence is one of evolution’s most consequential inventions. It is the result of a sprint that started millions of years ago, leading to ever bigger brains and new abilities. Eventually, humans stood upright, took up the plow, and created civilization, while our primate cousins stayed in the trees.

“This was the first attempt to understand the evolution of human cognition using a transgenic monkey model,” says Bing Su, the geneticist at the Kunming Institute of Zoology who led the effort.

According to their findings, the modified monkeys did better on a memory test involving colors and block pictures, and their brains also took longer to develop—as those of human children do. There wasn’t a difference in brain size.

The experiments, described on March 27 in a Beijing journal, National Science Review, and first reported by Chinese media, remain far from pinpointing the secrets of the human mind or leading to an uprising of brainy primates.

" Never Trump" political commentator Sarah Longwell urged Democrats on Saturday to consolidate the Democratic presidential primary field to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., from becoming the party's nominee.

Longwell wants Democrats to heed the lessons of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, saying that a crowded field deep into primary season is one of the most substantial reasons why the Republican Party ended with a Trump candidacy. She warned that if Sanders does become the Democratic nominee, President Trump will easily defeat him in 2020.

"I mean, sure, I don’t know the future. But your Democratic present is looking an awful lot like our Republican past. I’m worried there’s something taking shape in front of you that you can’t quite see. Or maybe you do see it, and aren’t as alarmed by it as I am," Longwell said in an op-ed published in The Bulwark on Saturday morning.

"Either way, it’s my firm belief that if you don’t do something to change course, America is going to be forced to choose between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump in 2020."

What he's saying is that the votes will be split up too much. There are only so many ways you can divvy up votes before all it takes for a nomination is a 2% majority. Crowding a primary means that the minority gets way more voting power, which is good for people who need a voice, and just as good for those who don't deserve to have one.
I find it hilarious how hard these faggots want to keep this broken ass status quo that Trump was supposed to change. The media's obsession with telling people to not vote Bernie is like the Ron Paul meme but in reverse
Donald Trump is the first president to have supported gay marriage before he was a president. His protectionist trade policies are similar to JFK and Johnson. And he spends money like It's going out of style
So then Trump was a fucking awful nominee, because literally everything you said applies to him.
The truth doesn't need to be.

The anti Sanders shills are spamming fake articles on the board to distract you from Sanders' evisceration of cheap conservative low blow tactices

"Bernie Sanders’s Fox News town hall, which aired Monday night, showed that contrary to the belief of many of his detractors (and some of his supporters), the Vermont senator really does have more than one rhetorical mode."

"There was the mode he used for the town hall part, and the mode he used for the Fox News part — represented by anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, who liberally interspersed questions from the audience with questions of their own"

"When speaking directly to audience members or to the TV audience watching at home, Sanders was sincere and open. When asked about President Donald Trump, he spoke with emotion about how he hoped everyone could agree a “pathological liar” should not be president; in his closing statement, he practically begged for more comity in the country, without backing off his insistence that the rich need to do more to provide for working families."

"When speaking to Baier and MacCallum, however — or, in a couple of moments, directly to the Fox News-watcher-in-chief — Sanders was as prickly as you’d expect. “The president watches your network a bit, right?” he needled. He hectored the hosts for making more money than he did. He huffed that he’d give fair answers only if asked fair questions."

"The uncomfortable dynamic between Sanders and the hosts occasionally served to sharpen intellectual differences. Early in the hourlong town hall, Baier asked whether Sanders’ millionaire status (earned, he said, by the success of his recent book) proved that capitalism worked; Bernie tartly responded “no,” then, after a pause, launched into a mini-lecture about the obligation to ensure a minimum standard of living for the least wealthy in America."

Of course! Clearly only the impossibly humble and righteous have the moral authority to guide the country in fixing its most obvious wrongs.

It's not as if anon is arguing in bad faith by setting a pointlessly high standard of morality that literally no reformer ever could measure up against. That would be SILLY.

The private tax-preparing industry has lobbied heavily to keep the IRS from developing the programme

Congress is poised to pass a bill that would hand a major policy victory to the for-profit tax preparation industry, just in time for Tax Day in America.

The bill, titled the Taxpayers First Act, is a wide-ranging bill that includes a provision that would ban the US government from developing a free electronic tax filing system, and is supported by companies like Intuit, the maker of TurboTax, and H&R Block.

Those companies have lobbied Congress for years now to block the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from developing a free system to help taxpayers file online and would compete with their product, sinking a combined $6.6m into efforts related to the bill just last year.

The passage of the provision would safeguard the profits of the private tax preparation corporation, which experts say run a system that makes filing taxes more difficult than it needs to be.

“This could be a disaster. It could be the final nail in the coffin of the idea of the IRS ever being able to create its own program,” Mandi Matlock, a tax lawyer with the National Consumer Law Centre, told ProPublica.

The legislation received a major boost last week after the House Ways and Means Committee voted to advance the legislation.

It has bipartisan support in that committee, where it is co-sponsored by Democratic Representative John Lewis and Republican Representative Mike Kelly.

that way lies hyperinflation and soda machines that charge a million dollar coin for a soda
Well redistributing income can vastly improve the standards of living for many at relatively marginal cost from those being taxed, and can even catalyze economic growth when it enables otherwise deprived to tap their full potential.

On the other hand, it's important to incentivize the movement of talent and labor to where there is greatest demand, to increase the overall wealth available to society.

The important question is, how much redistribution is too much?

The 12K$ per year figure is generally agreeable for UBI because it's not enough for the large majority of people to survive on; they'll require some other sort of work. At the same time, it's still enough to mostly address some other issues we have, like people being stuck in careers they've no interest in, tuition inflation (by disincentivising degree programs as the only means to achieve a decent standard of living), recidivism from lack of economic opportunity for ex-convicts, and reduction of student debt. Also it's a nice round number.
Legal bribery.
I bet you're the life of the party.

The report was put together by the German magazine Der Spiegel, the German TV channel ZDF, the Italian newspaper La Repubblica and British broadcaster BBC. It comes amid growing indications that Russia is attempting to undermine stability in the European Union by supporting nationalist and populist parties.

the rise in mass shootings if correlated with the attention they have been given.
so if you want to reduce mass shootings it seems the course of action to take is remove the attention.
Are you implying mass shootings weren't widely reported on before the past few years? Columbine was twenty years ago.
and they say vidya causes this...
Isn’t Columbine the source for some copycat attackers? That crazy chick who shot herself recently idolized columbine. And if anything, the media circus that goes on after every shooting happens is enough game for the shooters to soak in. Even Nikolas Cruz gets love letters in jail.

Chinese scientists have put human brain genes in monkeys—and yes, they may be smarter
A quest to understand how human intelligence evolved raises some ethical questions

Human intelligence is one of evolution’s most consequential inventions. It is the result of a sprint that started millions of years ago, leading to ever bigger brains and new abilities. Eventually, humans stood upright, took up the plow, and created civilization, while our primate cousins stayed in the trees.

Now scientists in southern China report that they’ve tried to narrow the evolutionary gap, creating several transgenic macaque monkeys with extra copies of a human gene suspected of playing a role in shaping human intelligence.

“This was the first attempt to understand the evolution of human cognition using a transgenic monkey model,” says Bing Su, the geneticist at the Kunming Institute of Zoology who led the effort.

Two weeks before she was fired, Kirstjen Nielsen told President Donald Trump "no."
Nielsen, at the time the head of the Department of Homeland Security, resisted Trump's order to close the US border with Mexico in El Paso; by telling Trump the move would be "a bad and even dangerous idea, and that the governor of Texas, Republican Greg Abbott, has been very supportive of the President," reported CNN's Jake Tapper on Monday.

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: "When the President would say, 'Here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it.' And I'd have to say to him, 'Well Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way. It violates the law. It violates treaty.'"

Former FBI Director James Comey: "'I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting [former national security adviser Michael] Flynn go,'" Comey said Trump told him in a one-on-one meeting at the White House in 2017. "'He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.'" Comey recounted that he told Trump only that Flynn "is a good guy" but made no promise to end the FBI investigation.

Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis: Trump wanted Mattis to execute the withdrawal of troops from Syria. Mattis refused -- and resigned. Trump later agreed to leave 400 US troops in Syria.

Your right, you claimed he 'changed the rules'
And if your not talking about policy then you must have been referring to rule of law.
Or were you still arguing policy like the rest of your post?

>We can collect clear and accurate stats on the percentage of crime committed by people in this country with no documentation, that are know to regularly avoid police as they are by definition criminals for entering the country illegally.

>It is also fine, and not compromising of said statistics to also group in all of the people that come into the country legally with other said group in order to paint them as one.

Yeah, nice "statistics"
You have yet to prove him wrong, and are just making excuses for Trump in his cruel and inhuman policies.
So is your factless opinion
No, that includes illegals.

The reason we have these statistics on crime is because the people who commit them get caught. Criminals tend to avoid the police, illegal or not.
