There is no $110 billion deal. Instead, there are a bunch of letters of interest or intent, but not contracts. Many are offers that the defense industry thinks the Saudis will be interested in someday. So far nothing has been notified to the Senate for review. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency, the arms sales wing of the Pentagon, calls them “intended sales.” None of the deals identified so far are new, all began in the Obama administration.

Donald Trump Is a Menace to the World: Opinion - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Donald Trump is not fit to be president of the United States. He does not possess the requisite intellect and does not understand the significance of the office he holds nor the tasks associated with it. He doesn't read. He doesn't bother to peruse important files and intelligence reports and knows little about the issues that he has identified as his priorities. His decisions are capricious and they are delivered in the form of tyrannical decrees.

He is a man free of morals. As has been demonstrated hundreds of times, he is a liar, a racist and a cheat. I feel ashamed to use these words, as sharp and loud as they are. But if they apply to anyone, they apply to Trump. And one of the media's tasks is to continue telling things as they are: Trump has to be removed from the White House. Quickly. He is a danger to the world.

Mass Extinction is Here

There is no longer any doubt: we are entering a mass extinction that threatens humanity’s existence.

That is the bad news at the center of a new study by a group of scientists including Paul Ehrlich, Bing Professor of Population Studies in biology and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute. Ehrlich and his co-authors call for fast action to conserve threatened species, populations and habitat, but warn that the window of opportunity is rapidly closing.

Mysterious wave of antelope deaths


Around half of the world's critically endangered Saiga antelope have died suddenly in Kazakhstan since 10 May 2015. The animals die within hours of showing symptoms, which include depression, diarrhoea and frothing at the mouth.

Herd fatality is 100% once infected, with an estimated 40% of the species' total population already dead. More than 120,000 carcasses had been found as of late May, while the estimated total population was only 250,000.

Friendly reminder that religious schools use to force kids to write with their right hand, because they thought being left handed had something to do with the devil. Hmmm that doesn’t sound familiar at all.

Hmm, not even suprised at all.

A California judge just declared abstinence-only sex ed illegal.

A California law passed in 2003 prohibits sex education curriculum that contains “medically inaccurate or biased information.” So when parents found out their kids’ text book taught abstinence until marriage and excluded info about preventing pregnancy and STIs they went to court. A judge agreed — and made history in America.
