Scientist Claims Human Microchip Implants Will Become “Not Optional”

tracking-chip

It’s not possible to interact with society in a meaningful way by not having a mobile phone. I think human implants are likely to go along a very similar route. It would be such a disadvantage to not have the implant that it essentially becomes not optional.”

“I have just written the world’s worst science research paper…”

… and it was accepted. “Now science publishers around the world are clamouring to publish it.

They will distribute it globally and pretend it is real research, for a fee.”

wwwtp

It’s untrue? And parts are plagiarized? They’re fine with that.

Welcome to the world of science scams, a fast-growing business that sucks money out of research, undermines genuine scientific knowledge, and provides fake credentials for the desperate.

My short research paper may look normal to outsiders: A lot of big, scientific words with some graphs. Let’s start with the title: “Acidity and aridity: Soil inorganic carbon storage exhibits complex relationship with low-pH soils and myeloablation followed by autologous PBSC infusion.”

Look more closely. The first half is about soil science. Then halfway through it switches to medical terms, myeloablation and PBSC infusion, which relate to treatment of cancer using stem cells.

The reason: I copied and pasted one phrase from a geology paper online, and the rest from a medical one, on hematology.

I wrote the whole paper that way, copying and pasting from soil, then blood, then soil again, and so on. There are a couple of graphs from a paper about Mars. They had squiggly lines and looked cool, so I threw them in.

Footnotes came largely from a paper on wine chemistry. The finished product is completely meaningless.

The university where I claim to work doesn’t exist. Nor do the Nepean Desert or my co-author. Software that catches plagiarism identified 67 per cent of my paper as stolen (and that’s missing some). And geology and blood work don’t mix, even with my invention of seismic platelets.

I submitted the faux science to 18 journals, and waited.

Predators moved in fast. Acceptances started rolling in within 24 hours of my submission, from journals wishing to publish the work of this young geologist at the University of Ottawa-Carleton.”

This and more was initiated by and published in the Ottawa Citizen.

NSFW: The End Is Near

In centuries past God destroyed civilizations, and even the world, when it got to this stage.

This woman creates ‘Art’by laying paint-filled eggs from her vagina. She doers it in public, totally naked, and she calls it art.

An upright standing nude on a loft… One with ink and acrylic fueled egg… A preserved canvas…

What the spectators are about to expect, is the compressed birth of a piece of art.
Slowly the egg leaves the natal canal of the artist and smashes on the canvas, red colour flows out. The next egg contains another colour and so bit by bit, accompanied only by loud “Plops”, an abstract art work originates — archaically, uncontrollably and intuitively. At the end of this almost meditative art birth performance the stained canvas is folded up, smoothed and unfolded to a symmetrically reflected picture, astonishingly coloured and full of strong because universal symbolism.”

You’d Think They’d Learn…

… But reality and facts never enter into the discussion with them.

The other day we saw this image from Bloomberg’s anti-gun group. It shows a gun muzzle emitting an entire cartridge – case, primer, and all.

Now we see that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has done the same idiotic thing. This time they used a large-frame revolver. Anyone who knows guns understands that they don’t discharge the entire cartridge. We also know that they don’t fire unless the trigger is pulled. Here ya go:

unfired gun firing

I suspect that both organizations used the very same ad agency.

Hank Aaron Tries To Qualify “KKK” Comment, Digs Himself Deeper

hank aaron

Hank Aaron was a great hitter. When I was young I didn’t get to many baseball games but I remember one in St. Louis. I was sitting in the bleachers in left field. Behind us was the scoreboard. It stuck up about a hundred feet above the field. Aaron hit a ball over the top of it. I was, and still am, impressed.

But Aaron has decided that he should comment on politics. Last week he said this:

Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated.
“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country.
“The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

His comments have caused no end of comment so he has found it necessary to clarify what he meant. The reporter who first exposed Aaron’s comments defends him:

I talked to Hank earlier today and Hank is very upset with this entire situation,” Moore said on ESPN’s Outside the Lines. Moore said that “Hank feels he has been taken totally out of context here,” and there is the “big focus is on that statement he didn’t make that the Republican party is analogous to the Ku Klux Klan, which he never said.”
“He is very bitter about this situation,” Moore said. “This just opens up old wounds that he would rather not deal with.”

Poor baby plays the victim card and the race card and then tries to walk it back. He singled out the Republican party and later tries to say he didn’t. He lies just like President Obama.

The article in Breitbart also says,

Nightengale also said that Aaron had just broken his hip and gotten the Congressional Medal of Honor and was “very close to President Barack Obama and this stuff is just close to his heart.”

My guess is Aaron’s support of Obama has to do with skin color alone. His opposition to the GOP is based on their opposition to his ‘Man’.

Nightengale apparently meant the ‘Congressional Medal of Freedom’. The Medal of Honor is reserved for warriors.

Chicago Leaders Seek More Tourists…

… So they came up with an idea to spend even more money that they don’t have. They propose a multi-million dollar deal to hire some French puppeteers – they have 50 foot high puppets.

If this happened anywhere but Chicago that place would be a laughingstock. But in the windy city it’s business as usual.

chi-giant-street-puppets-tourism-20140418-001

From the Chicago Tribune:

Chicago has come up with a really big idea to boost tourism: giant puppets roaming the city’s streets for days in an elaborate theatrical presentation.

A multimillion-dollar deal is in the works to make Chicago the stage for Royal de Luxe, a French street theater company featuring marionettes as tall as 50 feet, during the summer of 2016, according to sources.

Chicago would be the first foray into the U.S. for Royal de Luxe, and officials confirmed Friday that talks are underway to bring the giant puppets to town.

“The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events talks to artists and organizations from around the globe on a daily basis about bringing performances to Chicago,” said Jamey Lundblad, a spokesman for the city. “We’ve spoken with Royal de Luxe and believe their unique street theater productions have a positive social and economic impact on their host cities.”

Understanding Newspeak

For those who may not know, Newspeak is the official language the government imposes on the people in George Orwell’s book 1984. Wikipedia says this about Newspeak:

Newspeak is the fictional language in the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, written by George Orwell. It is a controlled language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit freedom of thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as “thoughtcrime.”

Those of us who read the book never expected anything like Newspeak to actually become mandatory – but it has. Here are a few examples:

Moonbat Heaven: ‘Fartpacks’ For Cattle

At first I thought they included a hose to the animal’s anus, but no, they poke a hole in the cow’s side to tap the gas directly from its stomach. There is video, in Spanish, at the link. The contraption was developed in Argentina.

The United States will undoubtedly fund this.

Trapped wind? Flatulent cows have come under renewed scrutiny by scientists who are hoping to reduce soaring levels of greenhouse gas pollution. Scientists in Argentina believe they have come up with a solution - cow backpacks that can be used to trap the animal's natural gas

Trapped wind? Flatulent cows have come under renewed scrutiny by scientists who are hoping to reduce soaring levels of greenhouse gas pollution. Scientists in Argentina believe they have come up with a solution – cow backpacks that can be used to trap the animal’s natural gas

On Friday, the Obama administration stated that it would make a multi-pronged attack on cow flatulence, in an attempt to cut methane emissions.
As a result, windy cows have come under renewed scrutiny by scientists, who plan to capture their harmful emissions and convert them into ‘green’ energy.
But scientists in Argentina believe they have come up with a solution – cow backpacks that can be used to trap the animal’s natural gas.

The ‘fartpacks’ extract 300 litres of methane a day from a tube inserted into the cow’s digestive tract and convert it into enough energy to run a car for 24 hours.

Gawker: “Income Inequality Institute Will Pay Paul Krugman $25,000 Per Month”

This is a joke, right?

No it isn’t.

Progressives take care of their own.

I'd be smug too

I’d be smug too

In late February, the City University of New York announced that it had tapped Princeton economist and New York Times blogger Paul Krugman for a distinguished professorship at CUNY’s Graduate Center and its Luxembourg Income Study Center, a research arm devoted to studying income patterns and their effect on inequality.

About that. According to a formal offer letter obtained under New York’s Freedom of Information Law, CUNY intends to pay Krugman $225,000, or $25,000 per month (over two semesters), to “play a modest role in our public events” and “contribute to the build-up” of a new “inequality initiative.” It is not clear, and neither CUNY nor Krugman was able to explain, what “contribute to the build-up” entails.

It’s certainly not teaching. “You will not be expected to teach or supervise students,” the letter informs Professor Krugman, who replies: “I admit that I had to read it several times to be clear … it’s remarkably generous.” (After his first year, Krugman will be required to host a single seminar.)”

Borepatch: “The Thought-Terminating Cliche”

I Like reading Borepatch. Not all of his essays are as pertinent and well thought out as this one but most are. In this one he discusses an effective weapon that is costantly used by people of the left. We would do well to understand the technique. Even if we don’t choose to use it we can at least recognize what they are doing and mount a resistance.

Gotcha!

Gotcha!

The Thought-Terminating Cliche

Al Fin has a link-rich post about groupthink and the hive mind:

A large part of the dominant left’s ideological battle against all others, is keeping alternative thought as far away from “authoritative” public platforms as possible. So no commencement address at Brandeis for Ayaan Hirsi-Ali.”

A thought-terminating cliche is a canned response that drops a listener into a default protective mode where challenging propositions can be rejected out of hand. These cliches have (as all cliches must) a kernel of truth surrounded by vast shades of gray that are skipped over. The usefulness of the thought-terminating cliche is that the Faithful can resist sin.

When avoiding the group mind, one is not looking for things to believe. Rather, one is looking for provocative ideas capable of jarring the mind into alternative levels and avenues of thought. A mind looking for something to believe is a mind ripe and ready for recruitment into the hive.”

This explains the hypocrisy of the Academic Left: in the 1960s and 1970s they were all for free exploration of new ideas, because they were on the outside looking to get in. Free expression helped them. Since the 1980s they have become the dominant ideology and so new ideas are most definitely not welcome. Thus the focus on punishing thought crime (Campus speech codes) as being harmful to diversity.

Of course, “thought crime” and “diversity” are both cliches. However, only one stops the thought process.”

Hobbs, New Mexico Is Looking For Badasses For Their Police Department

Now the police chief is advertising for the hiring of additional officers. Who would be attracted by this ad? Certainly not me. I would say it would be someone who wants an adrenaline rush from busting someone’s balls or stacking up in front of someone’s front door.

Hope n’ Change doesn’t actually have a lot to add to today’s cartoon because it pretty much sums up exactly what we believe the Obamacare strategy to be – a deliberate fustercluck designed to force people into an unworkable system and destroy the private insurance agency. The eventual goal being a single payer system for everyone…and cost-saving euthanasia (“painkillers not pacemakers” in the president’s words) for the old, infirm, and inconvenient.”

Ebony: “When Doctors Slam the Doors on the Newly Insured”

waiting line

I can not see how this is any different than it was before the ACA – except that there are now many more people on Medicaid than there were.

As a proud new beneficiary of the Affordable Health Care Act, I’d like to report that I am doctorless. Ninety-six. Ninety-six is the number of soul crushing rejections that greeted me as I attempted to find one. It’s the number of physicians whose secretaries feigned empathy while rehearsing the “I’m so sorry” line before curtly hanging up. You see, when the rush of the formerly uninsured came knocking, doctors in my New Jersey town began closing their doors and promptly telling insurance companies that they had no room for new patients.”

The writer begins by lamenting that she is having trouble finding a doctor even though she has a Medicaid card. This has been the norm since Medicaid was started. I know many people on Medicaid. They wait months for an appointment – once they find a doctor who will see them – and then wait more months for treatment. That is what socialized medicine is like.

In the second paragraph the writer reveals that her ‘Insurance’ is Medicaid. Then she presents this non-sequitur:

According to a study 33% of doctors are NOT accepting Medicaid. Here in Jersey, one has a dismal 40 percent chance of finding a doctor who accepts Medicaid – the lowest in the country.”

Huh? It sounds like your odds are better in ‘Jersey’ than in the rest of the country.

Later in the piece she notes the reason doctors don’t want to treat Medicaid patients:

However, physicians say they are rejecting Medicaid patients with good reason. One doctor explains, “the state reimburses… only about $23.50 for a basic office visit [of those insured by Medicaid], less than half of what [I get] from Medicare or private insurers.”

Now that makes sense. But how is it the fault of the doctors? Sounds to me like it is cause by Medicaid’s administrators who set the payment levels.

Irony Alert: Britain To Slow High-Speed Rail To Save Environment

From the UK Daily Mail:

The Government’s controversial High Speed 2 rail link will be dealt a huge blow tomorrow as MPs demand that the top speed for trains on the line should be slashed by 40mph.

The proposal is just one of a damaging series of criticisms of the £50 billion HS2 project contained in a leaked parliamentary report seen by The Mail on Sunday.

The slower speed would add ten minutes to the predicted journey time from London to Birmingham, making it only 25 minutes quicker than current trains.

high speed rail

Critics already say that the project is a waste of money and the marginal savings on journey times do not justify the enormous cost.
The Environmental Audit Select Committee’s findings come just weeks before a crucial Commons vote on legislation that must be passed to give the HS2 scheme the go-ahead.”

Next thing you know they will be shutting down wind turbines. Oh, wait…

Jesse Jackson Jr. “Shanks A Guard”, Gets Transferred To Alabama Prison

The news this morning includes the story that Jackson Jr. was transferred. Second City Cop, who should know, has what they say is the back story:

Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has been moved from a federal prison in North Carolina to a minimum-security prison camp in Montgomery, Ala., after clashing with prison officials and being placed in solitary confinement, a source told the Chicago Sun-Times.

The 49-year-old former Chicago congressman had been advising other inmates in North Carolina about their rights in prison, according to the source, who said a guard took exception to that.

As a result, the longtime South Side politician was placed in solitary confinement for four or five days more than a month ago, the source said.”

That’s the official story. The way we heard it, Junior led a riot after stabbing a guard with a homemade shank that was delivered in a cake, allegedly from his daddy, and hidden in his ass for the past five months. Screams of “Attica! Attica!” were heard from the “hole” after the guards tossed him in solitary.”

Jesse Senior must be proud.

Didn’t Make The Obamacare Deadline? No Insurance For You.

There are a lot of details in all those thousands of pages. Pelosi was right. Now we’re finding out what was in the bill.

From the AP via Yahoo:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Here’s more fallout from the health care law: Until now, customers could walk into an insurance office or go online to buy standard health care coverage any time of year. Not anymore.

Many people who didn’t sign up during the government’s open enrollment period that ended Monday will soon find it difficult or impossible to get insured this year, even if they go directly to a private company and money is no object. For some it’s already too late.

With limited exceptions, insurers are refusing to sell to individuals after the enrollment period for HealthCare.gov and the state marketplaces. They will lock out the young and healthy as well as the sick or injured. Those who want to switch plans also are affected. The next wide-open chance to enroll comes in November for coverage in 2015.

It’s a little-noted consequence of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, which requires nearly all Americans to be insured or pay a fine and requires insurers to accept people with health problems.”

Chicago Cops: “No charges for man with concealed carry permit who fired at armed male”

chi-cops-no-charges-for-man-with-concealed-car-001

A 53-year-old South Austin man with a valid concealed carry permit was able to shoot at two men who tried to accost him outside of his home early this morning.

The incident happened about 2:40 a.m. on the 5400 block of West Van Buren Street, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Michael Sullivan.

The man was walking from his garage to the front of his home when two males in hoodies appeared in a gangway between his home and the neighbor’s home, Sullivan said.

One of the two men pulled a handgun from his waistband and pointed at the man who took out his own gun and managed to fire several times at the males, Sullivan said.

The males fled the area without being struck and the shooting did not result in any property damage, police said.

After the shooting, police responded and determined that the man was shooting in self-defense. The man had a valid firearm owner’s identification card, a valid concealed carry permit and police were able to determine that he had completed a required concealed carry class and was properly trained, Sullivan said.”

Anti-gun police superintendent Garry McCarthy was unavailable for comment.

Obama Draws Red Line With China

Heh. How well do you think that will work?

From the Puff Ho: U.S. Warns China Not To Attempt Crimea-Style Action In Asia

TAIWAN-JAPAN-CHINA-DIPLOMACY-DISPUTE

WASHINGTON, April 3 (Reuters) – China should not doubt the U.S. commitment to defend its Asian allies and the prospect of economic retaliation should also discourage Beijing from using force to pursue territorial claims in Asia in the way Russia has in Crimea, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

Daniel Russel, President Barack Obama’s diplomatic point man for East Asia, said it was difficult to determine what China’s intentions might be, but Russia’s annexation of Crimea had heightened concerns among U.S. allies in the region about the possibility of China using force to pursue its claims.

“The president of the United States and the Obama administration is firmly committed to honoring our defense commitments to our allies,” he said.”

Yawn. Pretty soon all this talk of red lines is going to put me to sleep. There is nothing behind it and everyone in the world knows it.

Majed Moughni, 43, of Dearborn holds flyers given to students at Howard Elementary School in Dearborn. / Ryan Garza/Detroit Free Press

Here’s a thought: Don’t attend – and don’t let your kids take part. Get over it.

Some Muslim parents are concerned about public schools in Dearborn handing out flyers to all students advertising an Easter egg hunt, saying it violates the principle of church and state separation.

A flyer headlined “Eggstravaganza!” was given to students this week at three elementary schools in the Dearborn Public Schools district, which has a substantial number of Muslim students. The flyer described an April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church in Dearborn featuring an egg hunt, relay race, and egg toss. It asked students to RSVP “to secure your free spot” and included images of eggs and a bunny.”
