German Authorities Investigate Sexual Attacks On Women At Music Festival

Comedian Lewis Black would say, when hearing of problems such as this, (paraphrase) It seems as though the world has taken a turn. Unfortunately, this is not a turn, just what is another in the ancient and cultural long attack and terrorization of women. To wit: Pakistani woman burnt to death, Brazilian gang rape, and an especially disturbing item, Gangbang T-shirt.
There’s far more to say, but not enough room.

No woman could do anything like this

I have heard about Madame as a singular woman of science. Fortunate enough to be friends with Voltaire, and alive pre-Enlightenment, she thrived in the circles and salons of the day in France. Madame du Chtelet most likely would have been a prodigy if she had been born a man. She had to settle for second best, which for time of world, wasn’t too unfortunate. The idea of ANYONE translating the Principia boggles the mind. To do so while performing her duties as a married woman and mother, could make us turn off our computers, never read another book, and contemplate the facts of her life. Astounding!

The bold, brilliant woman who championed Newton’s physics

Is she serene because she's on Science?

Planned Parenthood decision

Texas has thrown out the suit against Planned Parenthood for what had appeared as “truth” in a heavily, and miseading video put out by an anti-abortion group. In add ition, 2 anti-abortion activists have been indicted.

Leaving aside personal beliefs about abortion, should we not at least be abe to trust the information we are using to make an informed decision is accurate and truthful, unencumbered by activist groups lies and BS.

If you have to lie, cheat, steal to try and make your point, perhaps it’s time to take a look at your point(s). Maybe it has no backbone?!

Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton, old times there are not forgotten

Gillian Anderson had to fight for equal pay for the new X-Files miniseries http://www.theverge.com/2016/1/22/10815552/gillian-anderson-x-files-miniseries-half-salary-david-duchovny

I titled this as I did cause the South was so intent on missing the boat. Their chivalrous, charming, and ultimately the cause of their death was the same attitude expressed here.
Come on folks, if you’re gonna be sexist at least try and couch out in respectable ways. Of course when you’re this blatantly full of shit, there ain’t a shovel big enough our hole wide enough to hide in.
As a friend used to say, “This rankles my ass”.

Hubble’s Stunning New Pictures of Jupiter http://www.skyandtelescope.com/astronomy-news/hubbles-stunning-pictures-of-jupiter-10152015/

Beautiful though to small and short video of Saturn. It’s pretty cool, the project to take regular photos of the outer planets.
And so now we start to make visible the history of a small part of space.

We still have a tremendously long path to trod, but every little step helps. Because this is an end rack magazine along with Cosmo, etc. the effect could be greater than of it were just another monthly.

Say it loud and be proud!
