Science Can Now Find You With Just a Tiny Piece of Hair Popular Mechanics. The big problem with this “gee whiz” science is contamination, as well as errors in the lab. Imagine how far microscopic bits like this travel, say if you go to a gym or a school or use a bus or subway…or a hair salon!

You gotta give it to Carrie – she’s consistent. No matter how many people vote, no matter how long the protests continue, no matter how much HongKong falls into despair, she can be relied on to say the same thing every week. https://t.co/jbdHyzJ2vh

They are doing it again today 26.11.2019 – or 11/26/2019 if you are stateside.
I have 3 original pics to confirm it, they were driving super slow westbound on Seestrasse – I’ll try to send my 3 crappy pics, but there should be an article on this sooner or later.

New Cold War
Assessing the Russian Internet Research Agency’s impact on the political attitudes and behaviors of American Twitter users in late 2017 PNAS (David L). Even though it found (as others have) that the Russian troll farm Internet Research Agency, had zero influence, it still propagates the falsehood that IRA was an outlet for the Russian government. So much for soi-disant science.
Wowsers, Johnstone, then Carlson? What a progression. Positive but very unexpected.
Instead of doing the “TUCKER CARLSON IS NOT AN ALLY” dance antiwar leftists always do whenever Carlson gets a controversial story right, how about this time everyone just shames liberal MSM outlets for letting Tucker fucking Carlson be better than them on something? https://t.co/ScNOKOzkkT

Bloomberg Versus Trump Is a Nightmare That’s Just Beginning Vice (resilc). Bloomberg won’t get far enough to do anything other than make noise (I will concede he might get the nod in a brokered convention, but it’s hard to see how he gets enough delegate and popular votes by then for this not to look like Democratic party suicide). But it’s still annoying.
