Stuff I Noticed Today

Telegraph:

Russia warned of “a new world war” starting in Syria on Thursday after a dramatic day in which Gulf states threatened to send in ground forces.

Foreign and defence ministers of the leading international states backing different factions in the war-torn country met in separate meetings in Munich and Brussels following the collapse of the latest round of peace talks.

Pat Buchanan reckons a Michael Bloomberg presidential bid wouldn’t hurt Republicans:

Though he may be a pioneer in modern media and a man with a golden touch, Bloomberg is 74 years old this week, uncharismatic, and does not fill up a room the way the Donald does. He lacks a common touch and is a social liberal, pro-abortion and pro-same-sex marriage.

Moreover, he is a compulsive nanny-stater who outlawed smoking in New York bars, restaurants and public places, prohibited the sale of cigarettes to anyone under 21, forbade trans-fats in restaurants, sodas larger than 16 ounces, chain restaurant menus without calorie counts, cellphones in school, non-fuel-efficient cabs, greenhouse gas emissions, and non-hurricane-proof buildings in coastal areas.

While not well-known nationally, Bloomberg is a zealot about tougher gun control laws and his candidacy would produce a deluge of contributions to the National Rifle Association. This obsession, along with his social views, would sink him in Red State America.

Eurekalert:

“One of the most surprising findings of this study was that searches for where to buy e-cigarettes outpaced searches about health concerns or smoking cessation,” Williams said.

Only a health zealot would be surprised that people are searching online for where to buy e-cigarettes rather than about health concerns about them. Welcome to the real world.

And Harley has started his own blog. I’ll add a link to my blogroll.

    Just the other day, I realized that E does not necessarily equal M times C squared.

      Scientists completely fail to explain ‘gravitational waves’

      SCIENTISTS are under attack after making a huge fuss about ‘gravitational waves’ then failing to explain what they are.

      Angry taxpayers have demanded a ‘proper answer’ after the scientists spent billions of pounds on a ‘gravitational wave detector’ that no-one else is allowed to use.

        Gravitational Waves Exist: The Inside Story of How …

        But doubt spread as other laboratories built bars that failed to match his results.

        The New Yorker

        1 day ago – Nicola Twilley reports on the discovery of gravitational waves, ripples in … “I was completely ignoring him, skimming through all these weird e-mails and … In the meantime, the LIGO scientists were sworn to absolute secrecy. … But doubt spread as other laboratories built bars that failed to match his results.

        • harleyrider1978 says:

          Funny they make a big fuss,dont let anyone else use their equipment to verify the findings.

          And without replication over and over again. Its just a move for more grant money mooching by some research freeloaders Id guess.

          Your link to the New Yorker doesn’t exist either, Harley

          Gravitational Waves Detected, Confirming Einstein’s Theory

          “It completes his vision of a universe in which space and time are interwoven and dynamic, able to stretch, shrink and jiggle. And it is a ringing confirmation of the nature of black holes, the bottomless gravitational pits from which not even light can escape, which were the most foreboding (and unwelcome) part of his theory.”

          “More generally, it means that a century of innovation, testing, questioning and plain hard work after Einstein imagined it on paper, scientists have finally tapped into the deepest register of physical reality, where the weirdest and wildest implications of Einstein’s universe become manifest.”

          Which just goes to prove that smokers really can think round corners.

    The decline and fall of ‘The Independent’ is described in this article http://www.climate-resistance.org/2016/02/its-the-end-of-the-world-as-they-know-it.html
    There is a revealing circulation graph which also shows ‘The Guardian’: http://www.climate-resistance.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/IndyGraunPolyTrend.jpg

    The article highlights the fact that both papers championed the global warming alarmism cause.
    Both papers also championed the healthist anti-smoking cause and I just thought it worthy of note that 2006/7, the UK smoking ban start years, marked the beginning of their precipitous circulation fall in both cases.

    • Frank Davis says:

      I stopped reading the Independent when it climbed aboard the global warming bandwagon. One day there was a full page picture of a blazing sun on the front page, and I thought: “I’ve had quite enough of this stuff.” And cancelled the delivery.

      • Tony says:

        Same here although I don’t remember the exact edition. Must have been around 2004. I cancelled my subscription to New Scientist that year too and for the same reasons. One of the last articles in that rag was entitled something like “the anti-smoking backlash starts at last” and I thought “about time too”. But, bizarrely, it turned out they were cheering on the anti-smoking industry.
