Judge Offers Inmates Reduced Sentences in Exchange for Vasectomy

A judge in Tennessee is giving inmates a unique way to reduce their sentences: Have a vasectomy.

 

The program was issued in May after Judge Sam Benningfield signed a standing order, which permitted inmates to have their sentences shortened by 30 days in exchange for the sterilizing procedure.

 

Female inmates can also get the birth control implant Nexplanon, which prevents pregnancy for four years, for the same sentence reduction.

 

The program is voluntary. However, the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee has condemned the program, calling it "unconstitutional."

**************************************

Bill Nye should be happy, this will reduce global warming and save us from insanity.

 

Maybe something more extreme for rapist.

Did he looked in the mirror while making such a statement.

Maybe Nye should do us a favor and stop emitting CO2 from his person.

Congressman Asks NASA if There’s an Ancient Civilization on Mars. For Real

Addressing a NASA scientist testifying before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, U.S. Representative Dana Rohrabacher said, “You have indicated that Mars was totally different thousands of years ago,” according to a video posted to YouTube. “Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?”

 

In his answer, Ken Farley, a project scientist on NASA’s Mars 2020 Rover mission team, corrected Rohrabacher by saying the evidence shows that Mars was different billions—not thousands—of years ago. He added, “There is no evidence that I’m aware of.”

Rohrabacher, who is vice chairman of the Committee on Science, Space and Technology and has also served as a member of the Space and Aeronautics subcommittee, pressed Farley about his inquiry, asking him if he would “rule that out.”

***************************************

He should have asked them why they pretend to know everything about global warming on Earth but can't explain why it happened on Mars.

 

 

I see "Total Recall" had an influence on him. :lol:

NASA communications satellite damaged 3 weeks before launch

NASA's newest, slickest communications satellite has been damaged, just three weeks before its planned August launch.

NASA said Monday that one of the antennas on the Tracking and Data Relay Satellite, or TDRS-M (T-driss-M), was damaged last Friday. The accident occurred inside a payload processing building near Cape Canaveral, Florida, as the satellite was being packed for launch.

Officials are providing no details. But the mishap could delay what was supposed to be an Aug. 3 liftoff aboard an Atlas V (five) rocket. In a brief statement, NASA says the mission team is assessing the damage and flight schedule.

TDRS-M is the third-generation in this satellite series.

****************************************

NASA damaged a satellite while packing it? And people thought the U.S. postal service was bad.

New Mexico professor seeks to save moon-landing sites

A New Mexico State University anthropology professor is on a mission to save moon-landing sites.

Beth O'Leary is speaking this week in Washington, D.C., on preserving the spots where humans stepped on the surface of the moon.

She is giving presentations at the National Geographic Society and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum to coincide with the 48th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.

O'Leary says the Apollo 11 landing site at Tranquility Base, where humans stepped foot on the moon, should be named a National Historic landmark.

***************************************************

They better act fast on this one before those sites are turned into condos and low income housing.

 

It's a good idea because we cannot predict the future, colonization - exploitation MIGHT be possible.  No one should be within 50 miles of the Apollo 11 landing site.  The footprints left by the astronauts will last for millions of years unless an impact event erase them.

Recycled Gore -The former vice president resurfaces, with another round of familiar apocalyptic predictions.
 
The former vice president and Nobel Peace Prize winner is back in the public eye whether you like it or not. Since Trump’s announcement last month that the U.S. would pull out of the Paris climate pact, Gore has been on a media blitz to reprise his role as the prophet of planetary doom. The timing couldn’t be better for him. Next week, Gore’s new film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, will debut.
 
In an obsequious interview yesterday on CBS News Sunday Morning to promote his new movie, Gore doubled down on his global-warming proselytizing despite his record of failed predictions: Manhattan was going to be under water because of Greenland ice melt, Kilimanjaro was going to be snow-free, we would be battling rapidly rising temperatures and stronger, more frequent storms, just to name a few. Even as late as last week, Gore erroneously blamed climate change for the break-off of a massive iceberg in Antarctica, though scientists said the iceberg’s “calving” was due to natural causes.
 
If we don’t act now, Gore warns, our children will inherit a world of “stronger storms, worsening floods, deeper droughts, mega-fires, tropical diseases spreading through vulnerable populations in all parts of the earth, melting ice caps flooding coastal cities, unsurvivable [sic] heat extremes, and hundreds of millions of climate refugees.”
*******************************************
Gore was so wrong with his first set of forecasts that he came back to prove again he is clueless.

Is Global Warming Alarmism a Complete Fraud?

I usually try to give global warming hysterics the benefit of the doubt–sincere but misguided, not good at math, unacquainted with the Earth’s highly variable climatic history, and so on. But sometimes data come along that make that sympathetic attitude hard to sustain.

 

There are a number of charts, but this is a good example. It plots the temperatures that a single source, NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies–a notorious haven for alarmists–has reported over the years.

 

Note that the temperatures that were recorded at the time can’t have changed. The only difference is how GISS has chosen to report them, following “adjustments” of various sorts, over the years. The high temperatures that GISS reported in 1980, based on thermometer readings, have progressively declined over the years as the alarmists have desperately tried to shore up their global warming theory:

 

Screen-Shot-2017-07-16-at-8.51.40-PM.png

 

There is no other branch of science in which such after-the-fact changes in data to fit a politicized theory would be greeted with anything but contempt. Why are such shenanigans tolerated here? Presumably many billions of dollars in government funding have something to do with it.

**********************************************

it's all about the money with this scam, they adjust the temperature data like the graph proves to keep it getting "hotter".
