first_imgTownHall.com 11 June 2015President Obama is the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history, a glimpse of which we were able to see before he even stepped foot in the oval office. As a senator, Barack Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, not once or twice, but four times. In other words, he voted for infanticide, which makes sense considering he believes newborn babies are just “fetuses outside of the womb.”As president, he’s appointed a long list of pro-abortion judges and officials; expanded abortions through Obamacare; became the first sitting head of state to address Planned Parenthood, even wishing God blesses them; forced taxpayers to fund abortions worldwide via the UN’s Population Fund; promised to veto pro-life legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks; and the list goes on and on and on, as LifeNews.com documents.Considering all these clearly pro-choice leanings, it’s rather ironic that at the Catholic Health Association Conference this week Barack Obama recalled his first job after college as a community organizer was “funded by the Campaign for Human Development, an anti-poverty initiative of the Catholic Church.” And it was at this job, he said, that he came to see that “every human being, made in the image of God, deserves to live in dignity.”“There were times where I felt like quitting, where I wondered if the path I’d chosen was too hard,” he said.“But despite these challenges, I saw how kindness and compassion and faith can change the arc of people’s lives,” Obama continued. “And I saw the power of faith–a shared belief that every human being, made in the image of God, deserves to live in dignity; that all children, no matter who they are or where they come from or how much money they were born into, ought to have the opportunity to achieve their God-given potential; that we are all called, in the words of His Holiness Pope Francis, ‘to satisfy the demands of justice, fairness, and respect for every human being.’”The caveat of course being if they make it into this world.http://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarkoukis/2015/06/11/most-proabortion-president-ever-proclaims-every-human-being-made-in-the-image-of-god-deserves-to-live-in-dignity-n2011323?utm_source=thdailypm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl_pm&newsletteradlast_img read more

first_imgMany dinosaurs classed as different species are actually the same animal with different names, a publication of the Royal Society announced.  Read two news reports on this, however, and you will get two different opinions about how serious the problem is.    Rex Dalton in Nature News sounded the alarm: “One hundred and thirty-five years of questionable judgments, some driven by a lust for headlines, have left dinosaur nomenclature in disarray, according to two new studies.”  His article, “In search of Thingummyjigosaurus,” claims that nearly half the names given to dinosaurs have errors.  “The high error rate is not just a problem for fossil hunters; it is a warning that scientists should take extra precautions when identifying new species as they assess modern biodiversity, too, says [Michael] Benton.”  Benton [U of Bristol], author of one of the studies, said “It is a bit scary” to think that there are so many misnamed species.  16% of dinosaur names are duplicates, the study found, and another 32% have other classification problems.    The BBC News downplayed the seriousness of the problems.  It says most of the errors were made by self-promoting headline seekers in the early years of dinosaur hunting; “My research suggests we’re getting better at naming things; we’re being more critical; we’re using better material,” Benton told the BBC.  Another source of error has been the fragmentary nature of the evidence.  Paleontologists often have to classify a fossil based on just a hip or leg bone or vertebra.  In spite of these difficulties, “modern practice is now very good,” the BBC claimed.    Still, the BBC acknowledged that the ramifications of bad classification can be serious.  “There’s no point somebody such as myself doing big statistical analyses of numbers of dinosaur species through time – or indeed any other fossil group – if you can’t be confident that they really are genuinely different,” Benton told the BBC.  Accuracy is important for all biodiversity studies.  “People have also been looking at our current knowledge of mammals and insects and other animal groups and asking the simple question: are the species totals and lists we use for important conclusions – including to give political advice about endangered species – are they correct?” Benton asked.  “There’s been a big debate about vast extinctions among amphibians.  We have to know what the species are first, before we can talk about that.”This is the inverse of a long-lost cartoon.  A museum curator in Mexico shows a patron the skull of Montezuma.  Another smaller skull nearby prompts a question about whose it was.  “That,” the curator announces confidently, “is the skull of Montezuma as a little boy.”  There was a case of classifying two individuals as one man.  This is a case of classifying like objects as different species.  Think of the fun they could have with dogs and cats.    Classification is a human game.  Classification can have impact on human psyches and politics.  Remember that when you see a Thingummyjigosaurus in the museum, it might just be a Artifactofnomenclaturasaurus by another name.  But make no mistake.  That Bullfrogus headlineus in the path of construction is an endangered species.  Quick, pass a law!(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img14 June 2012South Africa’s trade conditions improved in May, the SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Sacci) reported on Wednesday.Its seasonally adjusted Trade Activity Index (TAI) gained five points to measure 56 for the month.“The better conditions are in correspondence with the relatively strong growth in the wholesale and retail trade, hotel and restaurant sector,” Sacci said in a statement.The non-seasonally adjusted TAI stood at 55 last month, compared to 48 in April and 49 in May last year.Sales and new orders recovered strongly to 64 and 58 compared to 50 for both indices in April 2012. A year ago the sales volume index was 56 and the new orders index 46.The inventories index increased moderately to 51 from 47 in April 2012, following strong inventory build-ups in both February and March 2012.Supplier deliveries recovered by six index points.“The fewer trading days in April played a significant role in weaker trade activity in April 2012 compared to May,” said Sacci.Indices for sales and input prices decreased from 63 and 72 in April to 59 and 68 respectively in May. Price pressures moderated despite an average rise in administered prices of 12 percent.“The effect of the weaker rand is yet to trigger higher prices,” the chamber said.Trade expectations remained positive, but tapered down in May.“Expectations are following the same pattern as in 2011, where the initial bullish outlook was moderated during the year,” said Sacci.“Weak economic conditions will continue to weigh on trade conditions in the coming months.”The six-month outlook for key components of trade activity contracted in May. Sales and input price expectations eased to 61 and 68 compared to 68 and 75 respectively in April.Inventories were expected to decline further.Employment conditions in the trade environment worsened during the month as the index moved from 43 to 41 in negative territory. The outlook for the employment index weakened to 49, from 55 in April.Sapalast_img read more

first_img Swivel & The Webcam Social ShopperWith the 2010 release of the Microsoft Kinect, the world is quickly getting used to the idea using your entire body as a controller. The device sold like hotcakes and now people are playing video games and controlling their Netflix accounts with the swing of an arm and shake of a hip. What if, instead, you could use this same interface to see if that shirt really goes with that pair of pants? Or how about that purse with that dress? That’s the vision of Swivel from FaceCake Marketing Technologies and The Webcam Social Shopper from Zugara. Simply stand in front of an Internet-connected camera and try on your clothing before you buy it online.Now, is it perfect? Far from it. The video was choppy and we have to wonder exactly how a system like this could tell you how something will really look on your without a full-body, 3D scan, but maybe that isn’t the whole point. Maybe it’s better to go from nothing to something, and right now when you’re shopping online you have nothing. Will this tell you if those pants are going to be a little tight? Or that shirt a little to slim in the shoulders? No. But it will tell you how they look together. Both companies go beyond virtually trying on clothes, however, and tackle the more broad realm of augmented reality. In reality, the virtual dressing room is just one example of a wide variety of implementations and, if the Kinect is any indication, we’re going to see a lot more from where these come from. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… mike melanson While the majority of companies launching at DEMO are entirely Web-based, there are some exceptions. This morning, we saw a handful companies hit the stage with gadgets in-hand (or in tow) that offer interesting perspectives on the future. What does the future look like? If DEMO is any indication, it’s filled with mind-reading headbands, and augmented reality dressing rooms, and kiosks that eat your old devices and spit out cash in return. EcoATMEvery year, more than 500 million devices reach consumers hands. The average smartphone lasts barely more than a year, with the average consumer swapping out at the 13 month mark. Where do these devices end up? In the landfill. What’s the solution? An automated recycling station at your local grocery store that takes your old devices and give you cash or store credit in return, automatically. It’s call the ecoATM and it’s currently  All you need to do is put your old device, be it a smartphone, MP3 player, game DVD, GPS unit or other device into the unit and it scans it and determines what it is. It then determines the object’s condition and figures out a price. Then, right there on the spot, the machine offers you store credit or cold, hard cash. That’s how we like our eco-activism – meted out in crisp 10s and 20s. MindWave from NeuroSkyIn a world of multitasking and distraction, it can be hard to concentrate. NeuroSky makes a game of it. Their device, which you wear on your forehead, monitors electrical EEG brainwave impulses and feeds the data through an algorithm to determine your state of mind. It then uses this measurement to advance the game. For example, on app requires a certain level of concentration to push an apple across the screen. Another poses quick mathematical questions and then graphs your ability to quickly and accurately respond. Children’s games, however, seem to be just that. The company has a much larger play on its hands, with biosensors providing early diagnoses, “seizures avoided, machines operated, movies edited, games controlled, REM prolonged, bullseyes scored, and lessons learned using only the power of biosensors.” Tags:#conferences#DEMO 2011#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostinglast_img read more
