Stories below the fold

China is ending it's "one child" policy, but folks there might not be able to afford a second kid.

in the future: Depopulation, and probably their small occult euthanasia of the handicapped and eldely will go into full swing...


Remember Voyager1? It entered interstellar space in 2012 and is still sending back data to puzzle the scientists.

Voyager 1’s crossing into interstellar space meant it had left the heliosphere — the bubble of solar wind surrounding our sun and the planets. Observations from Voyager’s instruments found that the particle density was 40 times greater outside this boundary than inside, confirming that it had indeed left the heliosphere. But so far, Voyager 1’s observation of the direction of the local interstellar magnetic field is more than 40 degrees off from what other spacecraft have determined. The new study suggests this discrepancy exists because Voyager 1 is in a more distorted magnetic field just outside the heliopause, which is the boundary between the solar wind and the interstellar medium. 



evolving faster than scientist said they should

and there is an ongoing debate if they arrived in the Americas via Columbus, or via Polynesian visitors.

NYT: asking questions your grandmother used to answer:

Is it safe to eat moldy bread?

If you want to preserve some of the bread, Ms. Gravely said, “cut away a big section surrounding the mold with a healthy margin around it to make sure you got all of it.”
well, DUH.


the good news you probably missed: In Colombia, peace is breaking out all over.

Over a decade of efforts to suppress criminal gangs and leftist rebels (and local militias organized to resist the rebels) has paid off. The drop in election violence is not surprising to most Colombians because it is in line with the general decline in criminal activity and lawlessness since 2000. After three years of negotiations FARC appears to have really made peace with the government and is preparing to demobilize its 7,000 armed fighters. ELN, with about 2,500 armed members, is willing to talk but has not actually begun peace negotiations yet. ELN is apparently feeling the heat from a population fed up rebellions and related drug gang violence that has left nearly 300,000 dead since it all began in the early 1960s. 
this was an area where some of the communist insurgents, who did a lot of the killings, morphed into drug gangs.
 the article has a lot of stuff about the socialist paradise, Venezuela, which like most socialist countries is slowly falling apart.

and the fact that the US is fracking, resulting in low oil prices is hurting too...

the low oil prices are an uncovered story, because one could say that the US (and to a lesser extent Saudi) is using the low prices as an economic war to hurt Iran, (and also Russia).

StrategyPage also has an article on the ongoing drug violence in Mexico and an opinion article on the US traveling the sea routes close to China's manmade Islands in the West Philippine Sea.

China is squaking about the US trying to use international sea lanes that they are trying to steal it won't go to war: they sell the US too much stuff and even an embargo could tank their economy. Of course, Tony Blair representing the NWO and China are discussing how the world will drop the US dollar and let China take over the world's economy, so don't xpect a nuanced discussion on this.

Obama will blink first, so the Philippines will be the real loser in all of this. And those running for president are all from the usual families, so don't expect much change here.

By the way: I haven't heard a lot of squaks from the ecowarriors protesting this destruction of our reefs and fishing grounds by dredging and building fake islands.
Ditto for lack of protests when Russian bombers hit civilian hospitals in Syria.

The ecowarriors and anti war protests are only against pollution if it is done by capitalist or by America.

Don't mind me: I'm getting cynical in my old age.


And no, I didn't watch the debate last night when the Republicans finally pushed back against the MSM bias.

Heh. If Romney had done this to Crowley, he'd be president today...

and Hillary might not be in trouble now for lying to cover the President during an election year, i.e. when he blew Benghazi by refusing protection and firing the Admiral who attempted to rescue them... and then blamed it on a video, when every gamer (and those who read the Wired article) knew Sean Smith left a message on a gaming site that he had seen professional terrorists casing the joint for an attack several hours before the bad guys arrived...
