NASA3,048,061Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008295

Pranksters got a bunch of Trump supporters to wave Russian flags at CPAC
"Today’s Conservative Political Action Conference was a more multicultural event than one might expect from a gathering of some of the loudest voices in conservative politicking. Not on purpose, of course; that would be absurd. But thanks to the actions of one clever person with an appreciation for mischievousness and an accurate assessment of people’s ability to distinguish national banners, a bunch of Trump supporters ended up waving Russian flags emblazoned with the president’s name during his speech"

Their free speech has been curtailed, they cry, because liberals can't handle the truths they spout."

In another sign that the GOP is cleaning their house of Alt-right scum, CPAC has kicked out that most punchable Nazi in America, Richard Spencer.
Bizarrely, though, they're claiming that the problems with the Alt-right are, somehow, due to infiltration by the Left: The alt-right, which "had been used for a long time in a very good and normal way," had been "hijacked [by a] hate-filled, left-wing fascist group," Schneider said. "We must not allow them to be normalized. They are not part of us."

This is important, people.

Ahem.

But the resistance will not be successful unless it is intersectional. Trans rights affect women. They affect men. They affect people in between and outside the binary. They affect white people and people of color. They affect people who are Christian and Muslim and Jewish and atheist. They affect people who are poor, people who are disabled, and people who are LGB or Q. Because people who are transgender exist under all those categories, and more.___This is important, people.

6. The military guys (Mattis, Kelly, McMaster, etc.) are busy trying to preserve their reputations by disagreeing with Trump when possible.

7. Stephen Miller is Bannon's eager lieutenant, but his influence goes only as far as Bannon allows. Too young, too self-important.

8. Sean Spicer is a flack, a traditional GOP operative whose days are numbered if you believe Beltway chatter. Not a vision guy.

9. Per Bannon, cabinet chiefs are figureheads for a devious & destructive strategy: Put people in charge who will gut their own departments.

10. Pence is POTUS-in-waiting, conducting a shadow campaign for the presidency, positioning himself to take over if/when scandal erupts.

11. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and other GOP leaders are playing a dangerous game of chicken, betting they can contain (and use) Trump.

12. There are a few other lawyers, officials, friends, etc. who are loyal, but none have real power. Bannon overrides them if he wants.

13. Any of these people could be leaking the inner workings of the White House. Palace intrigue is thick. Unpredictability rules.

14. The main checks on Bannon/Trump are: The judiciary, the intel community, the people. Democratic leaders are left twisting in the wind.

15. The media squandered their credibility during the election, helping to elect Trump by vilifying Hillary. Their impact is curtailed.

16. So here we are. Anything can happen, from trudging along as we have been, to a dramatic crackdown on free speech and a major war.

17. The best course of action for those who oppose this extreme agenda is to speak out, peacefully protest, donate to orgs, call reps...___

Whatever anyone claims, it’s hard to shake off being run out of town by 3,000 people screaming that you’re a Nazi. It’s the sort of thing that gives everyone but the coldest sociopath at least a little pause, and most of this crew don’t have the gumption or street smarts to function outside of a Reddit forum. They’re not the flint-eyed skinheads that many anti-fascists are used to fighting. I’m not a brawler, but I’d wager that these kids could be knocked down with a well-aimed stack of explanatory pamphlets, thus resolving decades of debate about whether it’s better to punch or to reason with racists.

Can you help shut down Trump's enablers?

While the DNC twiddles it's thumbs, there are a couple of critical elections coming up, as listed here https://www.flippable.org/upcoming-elections/

There are several special elections for a variety of reasons this year.

-- %< --
Delaware's 10th State Senate District
Democrats will lose control of the State Senate if they lose one more seat to Republicans, making the 10th district crucial. The district is very close, won by an incumbent Democrat in 2014 by only 267 votes.

The election will be held on February 25th, with Democrat Stephanie Hansen facing off against Republican John Marino and Libertarian Joseph Lanzendorfer.

Georgia's 6th U.S. Congressional District
The 6th District is historically Republican; however, Hillary lost there by only one point, suggesting an incredible opportunity for Democrats. Jon Ossoff is the most viable Democratic candidate, with endorsements from John Lewis and Hank Johnson.

The election will be held on April 18th. Stand with Jon and flip a seat.

Michigan's 31st State Senate District
Michigan will be a key state in the 2020 presidential elections. By flipping Michigan's state legislature—beginning with this seat—we can significantly improve our chances in 2020. The chance for upsets in well-resourced special elections makes this a target race.

Milo's childish, attention-seeking trolling has finally crossed so far over the line that even he realises that he's made a big mistake:
"In most cases – you guys know – if I say something outrageous or offensive, in most cases my only regret is that I didn’t piss off more people, but in this case if I could do it again I wouldn’t phrase things the same way. Because it’s led to confusion.”

And now we know what it takes for pro-Right troll to be shunned by the Right. It turns out that advocating child molestation will do the job.

And in yet more amusing news for the day, apparently there is still one line in polite society that you can get in trouble for crossing. Milo Minderbinder Yiannoupolos' defense of pedophilia (how "inter-generational relationships" are often crucial to the development of young people, especially among gay men, and it just goes on from there into a sort of NAMBLA manifesto) has gotten him disinvited from CPAC and his book deal cancelled.

Twitter is currently a mass of people saying "I was fine with him before, but this is too much!," of people replying on the lines of "wait, you were fine with the doxxing of trans students, and the abuse campaigns against game developers, and all the racist and violent speech, but this you're not OK with?," and a lot of other people (myself included) just shaking our heads and saying "OK, apparently this is what it takes for people to notice that he is not a nice guy."

But let's not dwell on that! Let's instead enjoy a seasonally appropriate recipe from +John Scalzi​. Mmm, Schadenfreude Pie...

A study has just shown that legalising same-sex marriage literally saves lives!

It's really nice to be able to share good news for once. A new study in JAMA Pediatrics studied the effect of same-sex marriage laws on teen suicide rates. They looked at 32 different US states which changed their laws at different times, as a way of disentangling this effect from other effects.

The net result? Legalizing same-sex marriage leads to a 7% overall drop in teen suicide attempts, and a 14% drop among LGBT teens.

It turns out that being publicly told that you're an accepted member of society and not a pariah does make a difference in people's lives, especially teenagers. Who woulda thunk?

But the upshot of this is: All of you who worked on this, in one way or another? You just saved some lives. Well done.

The article itself is available online: http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamapediatrics/fullarticle/2604258

(NB: For clarity, that's a 7% drop in the rate, not a seven percentage point drop drop. We should be so lucky as to have any one thing eliminate seven percentage points. As a baseline, a weighted 8.6% of all high school students, and 28.5% of LGBT high school students, attempted suicide in the year before same-sex marriage legalization. Suicide is the second most common cause of death among people aged 15-24 in the US.

For those who want technical notes: The paper seems to have done a very careful job on statistics, testing a wide variety of alternate hypotheses and ruling them out from the data. One test worth calling out: the two-year leading indicator (suicide rates two years prior to law changes) was not correlated to suicide rates, indicating that this was not triggered by general changes in the state which were also leading to this; the two-year trailing indicator (two years after), however, was correlated, with the same correlation as the immediate future, indicating a lasting effect rather than a one-off.)___A study has just shown that legalising same-sex marriage literally saves lives!

TALKING POINTS

* Planned Parenthood provides a wide array of healthcare services for women, including contraception, prenatal care, pregnancy tests, breast cancer screening and so on.
* Closing PP clinics frequently means NO health care clinics available for many poor women. This becomes a taxpayer cost when they land indigent in local emergency rooms.
* Most of PP federal monies come from reimbursement through the medicare program.
* The Hyde Amendment already prohibits federal monies used toward abortion.
* Of PP's budget, 3% goes toward abortion (again, none of which is federally funded). So cutting PP funding will mostly eliminate OTHER vital services, NOT abortion at all.
* Multiple national polls show strong support for PP
* Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and Dean Heller (R-Nevada) may be vulnerable in upcoming elections. If they are your senators, definitely point this out.

Planned Parenthood made the following observation, which I think is quite true:
“Defunding” Planned Parenthood is a misnomer. Their true intent is to block millions of people who rely on Medicaid from PP health centers. <https://twitter.com/PPact/status/817083691906244608>

You may be put on hold for a bit, but eventually you should be connected with a staffer and be able to speak your piece. Remember, BE POLITE as these folks are probably being overwhelmed with calls.

I recommend writing down what you want to say before calling. Having at least a list of the points you want to mention will help make the call go smoothly and efficiently. And, again, BE POLITE.


ISSUE

Congressional Republicans have tried for years to zero out all federal funding for Planned Parenthood because the group provides abortion services. The issue helped trigger a 16-day government shutdown in 2013, and Democrats and President Barack Obama insisted any provision targeting the group be removed from a bill to fund federal agencies.

Another effort to defund the group will spur another high-profile clash and could be a tough vote for some moderate Republicans such as Maine Sen. Susan Collins and Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who has opposed past efforts.

The vast majority of federal money that Planned Parenthood does receive funds preventive health care, birth control, pregnancy tests, breast cancer screening and other womens health care services. Democrats also point out that much of the money the group received is through the Medicaid program, which reimburses health care clinics that provide care to those covered by the federal program.

Under the "Hyde amendment" that is attached to annual funding bills, no federal money is allowed to go to programs that include abortion services, unless they are needed to preserve the life of the mother or are caused by rape.

Democrats immediately denounced the news that Republicans again were working to bar future federal funds for Planned Parenthood.
"This is a priority for the Republicans," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Thursday afternoon. "So I just would like to speak individually to women across America: this is about respect for you, for your judgment about your personal decisions in terms of your reproductive needs, the size and timing of your family or the rest, not to be determined by the insurance company or by the Republican ideological right-wing caucus in the House of Representatives. So this is a very important occasion where we're pointing out very specifically what repeal of the (Affordable Care Act) will mean to woman."

Not a new story, but a classic example of how rich white men can commit even the most horrific abuse of those society considers their "property", & get nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
He received an eight-year prison sentence in 2009 for raping his toddler daughter, but the sentencing order signed by a Delaware judge said "defendant will not fare well" in prison and the eight years were suspended.
