American university launches institute dedicated to studying kindness in bid to become antidote to world's politics, violence and strife
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • Bedari Kindness Institute was announced by UCLA after $20 million donation

  • First of its kind and aims to teach and empower citizens to be more humane

  • Will provide funding for research into social and physical mechanics of kindness

Casper Regional Landfill begins burying turbine blades
[WyomingNewsNow] One wind farm in Glenrock and two from the Saratoga area have partnered with the Casper Regional Landfill to dispose of their old wind turbine blades.

More than 900 blades will be brought to the landfill beginning now until the end of next spring.

The Casper Solid Waste Manager, Cynthia Langston, said that though most turbine blades can be reused, there are some that are simply un-recyclable.

"Ninety percent of the turbines are completely reclaimed, recycled, and reused, but there is ten percent that is fiberglass, so those are coming to us from three different farms in the state."

Langston said that though the motor houses can be crushed, the blades are too strong.

To save space, they cut each blade into three separate parts before transporting them, then stack them on each other to be buried.

Expect to see more blades come to the landfill at least until the end of next spring as more turbines are replaced or decommissioned.

New Census finds 22.1million non-citizens and almost 45MILLION foreign-born residents living in the U.S. - the highest number in more than a century
[DailyMail]
  • The U.S. Census Bureau released estimates from its annual American Community Survey on Thursday

  • Researchers found a record 13.7 percent of the 2018 U.S. population - about 44.7 million people - were born in another country

  • That’s the most foreign-born American residents counted in one year since 1910

  • About 22 million of those foreign born residents were 'not a U.S. citizen'

  • The census figures have emerged during a highly-charged debate over whether America's decennial Census survey should include a citizenship question

#9  I would like to see a rundown of how much which countries contribute to these numbers. The idea of a foreigner was not a big deal to me growing up, as my mom and aunt were Canadian (not even naturalized until I was in middle school), but I know that most of the immigrants nowadays come from third world hellholes rather than places that are relatively similar and English speaking.

Similarly, if there was evidence that these people were blending in and adopting American culture, I wouldn't care so much. As it is, it is a very big deal to me because they are trying to morph this country into the same hellish little nightmare that they came from (especially those from the Middle East and Latin America).

#11  Here you go, VH: American Community Survey
Posted by: Skidmark || 09/27/2019 12:06 Comments || Top||

#12  The model has flipped: it used to be heavily weighted toward Europe, including an usually high percentage of Irish immigrants plus Russian and Soviet Jewish refuseniki, but now us heavily weighted toward Mexico and Central America.

Mexico provides close to a third of the total and slightly over half of the illegals.

Central American countries provide another 10+ percent of the total and another quarter of the illegals.

The remaining legal immigrants are weighted toward the Caribbean and Asia, who together make up maybe a quarter of the total legal immigrant population.

The remaining quarter of legal immigrants come from Rest of World i.e. small percentages from 50+ nations across South America, Africa, Middle East and Europe.

The Business Roundtable/Koch Bros. GOP greedheads get higher profit margins.

The Identity Politics Left gets to preen and bask in virtue signaling.

The US Catholic Church gets to replenish its pews and parishes with a docile new set of millions of parishioners.

The Dems get a lock on the votes of the fastest-growing and in many huge states such as CA, soon to be majority demographic.

Win-Win-Win-Win.

China-Japan-Koreas
Beijing demands US drop sanctions on Chinese firms for oil transports
When you catch flak, you’re over the target...
[IsraelTimes] China has demanded that Washington drop sanctions imposed on Chinese companies and executives for transporting Iranian oil.

The foreign ministry criticizes the use of US laws against Chinese companies and calls on the Trump administration to "immediately correct the wrong approach."
Easy answer: "Don't use US Dollars"
A ministry front man, Geng Shuang, says China’s dealings with Iran
...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan, the abbreviation IRGC is a cognate form of Stürmabteilung (or SA), the term Supreme Guide is a cognate form of either Shah or Führer or maybe both, and they hate Jews Zionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol...
are in line with international law "and must be respected."

The penalties announced yesterday by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo apply to six Chinese companies and their chief executives. They include units of major Chinese state-owned companies.

Geng says Washington "disregards the legitimate rights and interests of all parties and wields the stick of sanctions at will. It tramples on the basic norms governing international relations."

Iraq
Iraqi security forces use water cannons to quell unemployment protests
[Rudaw] Protestors demanding government action on postgraduate unemployment were hosed down with Iraqi security force water cannons on Wednesday, in an act condemned by a national human rights
...which are often intentionally defined so widely as to be meaningless...
commission as an act "against freedom of expression."

Iraqi master’s degree and PhD holders have been protesting outside ministry buildings in Baghdad since June, calling for measures to ease unemployment among postgraduates, including an increase in public sector jobs.

One guy out of the 5-6 students knew anything about anything. It was hard to watch except for the one informed student. I wonder if these other students vote?

#10  I've always said that School should *not* be free. The parents should be required to pay something - even if it's on a sliding scale - so that they have some actual 'skin in the game'. Yes - even that welfare mother will need to pay $20/month/kid to school. When they do they might ask: "What the hell am I paying for?" which is a legitimate question all parents should ask.

If the parents have to write a $300 / kid check every school year they might pay more attention to what they are paying for.

NY City bans calling someone an ‘illegal alien' out of hate
[NY Post] It's now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an "illegal alien" when motivated by hate.
I can't wait for this to hit the courts
The restrictions ‐ violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense ‐ are outlined in a 29-page directive released by City Hall's Commission on Human Rights.

"‘Alien' ‐ used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen' person ‐ is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,'" reads one passage of the memo. "The use of certain language, including ‘illegal alien' and ‘illegals,' with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination."

The directive goes on to list several examples of acts and comments that would run afoul of the restrictions, including harassing people over their accents or grasp of English, or wielding the threat of a call to Immigration and Customs Enforcement as a tool of hate.[NY Post] It's now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an "illegal alien" when motivated by hate.

#1  The term is enshrined in the statute. It's 100% neutral. It's used by lawyers, judges and law enforcement officials all the time because it is the precise, clear, legally accurate and universally understood way to describe someone who is illegally resident in this country and therefore subject to fine, imprisonment or deportation.

The Left in this country have lost their minds.
