He was born to run all right. Bruce Springsteen is blowing off his tour date in North Carolina Friday because the state is daring

Are we witnessing the beginning of the end for the United States of America? All great nations eventually fall, and the United States is not going to
be any exception. Many of those that write about the decline of our once great country tend to focus on external threats, and there are certainly many
that could be talked about ...
“All I Really Need To Know I Learned in Kindergarten”
So-called 'reality' can be edited in real-time. It's the matrix. The project is a joint effort in progress between Stanford, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics,
and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. According to the project's abstract, via Stanford University: We present a novel approach for real-time facial reenactment
of a monocular target video sequence. The source sequence is also a monocular video stream, captured live with a commodity webcam ...
In the past, wealth came with responsibility. Today's rich avoid taxes, military service, and charitable giving. No wonder we're seeing a populist backlash
Fitzgerald's observation rings especially true today. The growing divide between the wealthy and everyone else is one of the pre-eminent issues of the 2016
presidential election. A tidal wave of public anger over income inequality and the decline of the middle class has made the rich a popular target on the campaign

named, is a dwarf galaxy located 400,000 light-years away from the Milky Way. A group of astronomers from the University of Cambridge analyzed
images taken by the Very Large Telescope in Chile with the help of a computer algorithm ...
In the famous 1988 Noam Chomsky and Edward Herman book, 'Manufacturing Consent', the authors explore how media distort the news and employ
propaganda, in order to bring about consent/consensus in the population. This is nothing less than the creation of reality I want to extend that concept here,
particularly as it applies to science ...
“Watch Canadian PM Justin Trudeau Explain Quantum Computing in 60 Seconds”
Those that were hoping for an "economic renaissance" in the United States got some more bad news this week. It turns out that the U.S. economy is in
significantly worse shape than the experts were projecting. Retail sales unexpectedly declined in March, total business sales have fallen again, and the
inventory to sales ratio has hit the highest level since the last financial crisis. When you add these three classic recession signals to the 19 troubling
numbers about the U.S. economy that I wrote about last week, it paints a very disturbing picture ....

release in February, describes what it feels like to be free ... Before walking out of jail a free man in February, Albert Woodfox spent 43 years almost
without pause in an isolation cell, becoming the longest standing solitary confinement prisoner in America ...
“Hong Kong Strong”
The impracticability of socialism is the result of intellectual, not moral, incapacity. In the expositions of Ethical Socialism one constantly finds
the assertion that it presupposes the moral purification of men. As long as we do not succeed in elevating the masses morally we shall be unable
to transfer the socialist order of society from the sphere of ideas to that of reality. The difficulties in the way of Socialism lie exclusively, or
predominantly, in men's moral shortcomings ...
Based on these trends, the future of religion in America probably isn't a church. Nearly a century after German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche
first proclaimed 'God is dead,' TIME magazine released a controversial cover on its April 8, 1966 edition with the related provocative question:
'Is God dead?'. Both Nietzsche and TIME were exploring the prominence of God in people's lives, and whether religiosity was on the decline in the
society. Fifty years later, religion experts are still grappling with that question, though the context has drastically changed ...

“You'll Soon Be Able to Shop From a Vertical Farm INSIDE the Supermarket”
Ali Sayed Husnain Shah is from a prominent Shia Muslim family with direct ties to the prophet Muhammad. When he was 15, he traveled
from his home in Pakistan to Oxford, England to visit his ailing aunt Gulshan. The story of his spiritual journey is chronicled in his new book,
'The Cost: My Life On a Terrorist Hit List'. After his arrival in the U.K., he made a disparaging remark about Christians and was quickly upbraided
by his aunt's assistant to be careful about the way he talked about Christians and "apostates" ...
“Smart Scalpel Can Identify Tumors in Half a Second”
In 2016, this has become a political "hot potato" that is causing emotions to run high on both sides of the debate. Many liberals consider the push for
gender-neutral bathrooms to be on the cutting edge of the civil rights movement in the United States. Meanwhile, many conservatives consider separate bathrooms
for men and women to be a matter of basic moral decency. What both sides of the debate can agree on is that this is an issue that is not going away any time soon.
Gender-neutral bathrooms are popping up in public places all over America, and the Obama administration has even installed one in the White House ...
