Four states considering laws that challenge the teaching of evolution

“Taking it at face value they sound innocuous and lovely: critical thinking, debate and analysis. It seems so innocent, so pure. But they chose to question only areas that religious conservatives are uncomfortable with. There is a religious agenda here,” said Josh Rosenau, an NCSE program and policy director.

The laws can have a direct impact on a state. In Louisiana some 78 Nobel laureate scientists have endorsed the repeal of the creationist education law there. The Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology has even launched a boycott of Louisiana and cancelled a scheduled convention in New Orleans. Louisiana native and prominent anti-creationist campaigner in the state Zack Kopplin said that those pushing such bills in other states were risking similar economic damage to their local economies. “It will hurt economic development,” Kopplin said.

There is also the impact on students, he added, when they are taught controversies in subjects where the overwhelming majority of scientists have long ago reached consensus agreement. “It really hurts students. It can be embarrassing to be from a state which has become a laughing stock in this area,” Kopplin said. Others experts agreed, arguing that it could even hurt future job prospects for students graduating from those states’ public high schools. “The jobs of the future are high tech and science-orientated. These lawmakers are making it harder for some of these kids to get those jobs,” said Boston.

Tonight’s 40k trivia:

Death Korps of Krieg

The Death Korps of Krieg is the name given to all of the Imperial Guard regiments that originate from the devastated, post-nuclear Death World of Krieg in the Segmentum Tempestus. Krieg was the site of a rebellion against the Imperium of Man over 1,500 standard years ago in the 40th Millennium and was bombarded with nuclear weapons followed by five hundred years of grinding warfare to purge the heretical rebels. After all those years of nuclear destruction and bitter trench warfare, Krieg was reduced to a scorched, radioactive husk of a world composed of dust and mud whose surviving people were forced to retreat into underground hive cities to survive the toxic planetary environment. The Death Korps of Krieg is a siege specialist regiment of the Imperial Guard and the regiments raised on Krieg seek to repent for their former treachery against the Imperium by displaying a disturbing disregard for their own lives in combat. Death Korps troops excel at wars of attrition and defensive combat in particular.

Castigation of Derondis (936-946.M41) - The Hive World of Derondis withheld its annual tithes and regiments of Krieg’s Death Korps were deployed to act as the honour guard of the Departmento Munitorum investigation team. After the Imperium officials were hanged by the rebellious populace, the Krieg troops redeployed into the towering mountains that overlooked the primary hive city. Several artillery and siege companies began to bombard the city spires and the inhabitants were mercilessly gunned down as they tried to break out from the besieged city. After ten standard years of relentless shelling, the hive was reduced to naught but rubble and dust, two years after all signs of life from the hive had already ceased and five years after the hive had plantively issued its unconditional surrender.

Deep into researching and correcting some of my genealogy… my mother’s side… and what I notice is how disruptive the move to North America in colonial times was for family histories.

Tracing back ancestry in this country is pretty straightforward through the 1850 census, and even before then the older states had ways of recording vital data. Back around the time of the first census (1790) paths start to break down. The big gap, once bridged, from 1850 back to the Revolutionary war, gives way to immigration stories. For those of us with a Colonial past the good news is if you can find someone from New England, as the historical societies up there have been relentlessly researching this stuff for a century, all to prove the elusive claim that one’s ancestors was on the Mayflower.

For those of us with a European ancestry I’m noticing quite a range of quality in the recording of the past. This has driven home to me the idea of a “name” and exactly what one name is supposed to mean, and why it was important to pass it on.

Also, the impact of illiteracy gets felt very quickly once one goes before the 20th century. I doubt if our goal of universal education and literacy is adequately appreciated by most people today.

And speak of appreciating new things… in the censuses of the before universal suffrage the census takers had to record who in the household had a voting franchise - often just the male head. Back then voting meant something more to people, I think, then it does today. I wonder, when I see the low voter turnouts that we have in most elections, if voting rights were taking away from a majority of Americans would they miss them?

Prosecutor shot down in the street in Texas by two men in tactical vests who get away. And another school shooting, this time in Atlanta. School in lockdown. A little more here. Some sources says student seriously hurt, other injured was a teacher who suffered cuts and bruises. Something of an update here—appears not to be a mass shooting. Return here for updates.

While the NRA talks hypothetically about needing guns to oppose “tyranny” some people look around and see that “tyranny” is already here, so they feel perfectly justified using their firearms to fight it. What defines tyranny? depends on who you ask and when you ask them.

I dig. Through the efforts of a distant cousin, either my paternal family (Underkoffler) got here in 1768 or 1778. Records suck.

I think my maternal family (La Salvia) got here in 1890ish. No records, and the damned acculturation means I’ll probably never know. (An Italian family who gives up making their own pasta and sauce in roughly 1954 in favor of pre-made pasta and Ragu. Oy fucking veh!)

The paternal-maternal (GGP Klinger) and the maternal-maternal (GGP Insana) — that is, great-grandfathers’ — families both got here in 1903, which is a giant freaking coincidence, coming from Sicily and Slovakia. Who knew?

My mother’s cousin did ton’s of research in the ‘70’s and 80’s eventually finding our lost relatives in Germany and joining the family trees. They came over and we had our first and only family reunion.

IT took two trips to Bavaria to do it. He found people who let him copy their “pedigree” books from Nazi times and searched thru grave yards. Eventually, he accidentally parked in a reserved parking place and the owner was our relative.

It was his retirement project. It wasn’t as difficult as it is for some people because the family has pretty much stayed around and in the little town our ancestor that emigrated from Germany settled in. His grave and stuff are still there.

59 HappyWarrior  Thu, Jan 31, 2013 10:18:13pm

Tried to find relatives when I was in Ireland. My grandmother’s maiden name isn’t too common but the only people I found with the name were far away from where I was studying. Her mother’s maiden name is much more common and it would have been a circus trying to contact those people. Now on the bright side, I did get a history of her maiden name for free which was awesome. Haven’t really bothered looking on my mom’s/Eastern European side of the family since there are so many different spellings and the translating would be tough. Plus I don’t even know where they came from in those countries. I know that there are some relatives still left since my great aunt apparently visited some of them while she was in college in the late 50’s but she died before I got into this stuff and I have no idea who on that side of the family I’d talk to if I wanted more info since that side of the family isn’t as tightly knit as my Dad’s side.

The family story I was told is that one of my ancestors was a big hero in the Austrian army, and as a reward for his service, was granted a stipend to send his descendants to school, a big deal back there and then.

But grandma Reba did not want to go to school. They told her that if she did not go to school, they would marry her off to some guy in Cleveland, Ohio.

She still refused to go to school and they put her on the boat in 1912.

Republican Montana state rep wants ‘corporal punishment’ for offenders

A Montana Republican state lawmaker wants to give criminals the option of choosing “corporal punishment in lieu of incarceration.” According to Think Progress, the legislation is being proposed by Rep. Jerry O’Neil and would apply not just to misdemeanor crimes, but to some felonies as well.

The law states that “(f)or purposes of this section, ‘corporal punishment’ means the infliction of physical pain on a defendant to carry out the sentence negotiated between the judge and the defendant.” The law states that the exact nature of that pain shall be “commensurate with the severity, nature, and degree of the harm caused by the offender.”

The proposed law stipulates that the punishment shall be carried out by local sheriffs if the defendant is avoiding jail time or corrections personnel if the defendant is choosing the option to stay out of state prison.

re: #66 goddamnedfrank

I just read the article and I have no clue. Just none. What the fuck. I thought maybe the quote was out of context, because even for NRO… jesus.

Nazism may have been an ideology to which the United States was — and to which the president is — implacably opposed, but it is hardly “senseless.” By the early 1930s, the Nazi party had hundreds of thousands of devoted members and repeatedly attracted a third of the votes in German elections; its political leaders campaigned on a platform comprising 25 non-senseless points, including the “unification of all Germans,” a demand for “land and territory for the sustenance of our people,” and an assertion that “no Jew can be a member of the race.” Suffice it to say, many sensible Germans were persuaded.

What she is really, really saying is that the assertion that “new Jew can be a member of the race” is not senseless. It is. It is senseless in that races do not exist, it is senseless in that there is nothing to be gained and everything lost from attempts at racial division and so it is foolish, and it is senseless in the old term meaning that it is without compassion or empathy.

I have no idea what meaning she’s trying to construct for ‘senseless’ here. What she’s clearly trying to say is that Obama, by calling the violence ‘senseless’, is ignoring the Nazis philosophical and political groundwork for their ideology and that this is dangerous. It’s obvious that Obama is not doing that. Obama said “Those who experienced the horrors of the cattle cars, ghettos, and concentration camps have witnessed humanity at its very worst and know too well the pain of losing loved ones to senseless violence.” He was very clearly saying that the violence of the camps, of the Holocaust, was senseless.

The author is saying it wasn’t, that it made sense to murder Jews even while it detracted from the war effort.

NRO reaches a new low, still descending.

Good morning Lizards!

A bit cold and dreery today in Philadelphia.

Morning will be spent testing videoconference room connections between here and a few locations in Germany. Sure to be lots of fun since these rooms have been problematic at times since installation due to equipment failures, network bandwidth issues affecting signal quality, training issue, and dealing with multiple languages when troubleshooting issues. (English, Portuguese, German, and I only speak one of them half fluently.)

All this may be a blessing since it is already looking like a day that is going to have a pile of bad news in it.

On the lighter side, I got up today and found a mini Occupy movement. Both cats were lying in the shower stall for some odd reason. Must have been some sort of anti-water waste protest. (Water is for Drinking. Tongues are for Cleaning!) ;)

I can see two logic chains leading to this:
1. They think that by substituting physical punishment and release they save money on incarceration; e.g. “If we beat them then we don’t have to worry about them being parasites and getting arrested for free room and board.”

2. They believe that infliction of physical pain is better aversion therapy for crime than incarceration. Which essentially is following a assumption that criminal punishment is simply punishment and not in any way an attempt at rehabilitation.

In any case I suspect the consequences of the proposal being adopted have not been thought through. And that is not even starting to address the psychological issues.

Considering the vagueness of the proposal (it doesn’t define what sorts of ‘corporal punishment’), it’s unlikely to be signed into law anyhow. If it somehow does get signed into law, it will likely be challenged immediately in federal court for its constitutionality because it seems to challenge the 8th amendment.

Interesting.

And Jackson vs Bishop decision was a specific case involving corporal punishment in a state prison system.

I suspect that the legislator who put up the bill was not familiar with the applicable case law. And a few minutes in Google looking up the 8th Amendment finds you a lot of information indicating that such a bill would need a lot more thought. Of course, this could also just be grandstanding for his electoral base, in which case he is just wasting legislative time for whatever committee ends up ignoring the bill.

I’d met him a few times before. Always gracious and quick with a quip or two.

He was a towering figure in NYC politics and helped steward the city following the fiscal disaster of the 1970s. He began the arduous task of revitalizing the city, but was always cognizant that he answered to the voters. “How’m I doing” wasn’t just a catch phrase. He really did want to know what people thought of him and the job he was doing.

And no matter what you thought of him or his politics, you could never say that he didn’t love the City.

Monthly unemployment figures out, and the rate ticked back up to 7.9% as 159k joined the ranks of the employed. The number would have been better if governments (fed/state/local) hadn’t shed another 9,000 jobs.

The BLS also revised upwards the November and December figures, but all the focus from the right is that the U3 rate rose but it’s interesting that the U6 rate didn’t.

It also marks yet another consecutive month of job gains (though not nearly as strong enough to really bring down the unemployment rates).

Prosecutors are still trying to figure out who was behind the ambush assassination of a Texas prosecutor, and one of his recent cases stands out for who was the focus:

The prosecutor, Mark E. Hasse, worked in the Kaufman County district attorney’s office in Kaufman, a town of 6,800 people about 35 miles from Dallas. He was shot several times shortly before 9 a.m. as he walked in an employee parking lot about a block from the courthouse.

The authorities said the suspect or suspects got out of a Ford Taurus, opened fire on Mr. Hasse and then returned to the car and drove away. Investigators were trying to determine why Mr. Hasse was targeted and if the shooting had anything to do with cases he had prosecuted.

“I’ve been doing this 43 years, and I’ve never seen anything like this,” said David A. Byrnes, the Kaufman County sheriff.

Mr. Hasse, 57, was the county’s lead felony prosecutor and a well-respected assistant district attorney. He received his law degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and in the 1980s served as a prosecutor in the Dallas County district attorney’s office, where he had been the chief of the organized-crime section.

Kaufman County prosecutors have been involved in investigations of the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas prison gang. In November, federal officials in Houston thanked a number of local agencies for their work — including Kaufman County prosecutors — when more than 30 senior leaders and other members of the gang were indicted on federal racketeering charges.

Officials said they were reviewing Mr. Hasse’s current cases — as many as 400 of them — and previous ones for leads.

Lawyers and prosecutors throughout North Texas were stunned by the attack. The Dallas County district attorney, Craig Watkins, sent an e-mail encouraging his employees to exercise caution.

The SPLC notes that the Aryan Brotherhood in Prison is one of the largest and most dangerous gangs operating in prisons across the nation. But it’s not a hate group in the traditional sense either, as they’ll do business with whoever they think will help them gain power, even if means working with the likes of Mexican drug cartels.

Deep into researching and correcting some of my genealogy… my mother’s side… and what I notice is how disruptive the move to North America in colonial times was for family histories.

For those of us with a European ancestry I’m noticing quite a range of quality in the recording of the past. This has driven home to me the idea of a “name” and exactly what one name is supposed to mean, and why it was important to pass it on.

A cousin of mine did my father’s side back to when they moved to North America and her’s was relatively easy, as the family stayed in one placed for 400 years. I don’t think she ever went further back than our arrival.

My mother’s side would be tougher as her parents moved here after WWI.

There’s been a fairly big push against the AB recently. Most significant, one of their higher members, Terry Sillers, turned within the past three or four months and is in witness protection. So there’s a big two-part reason for the attack (actually I think it’s attacks, but so far the others haven’t been deadly.) There’s the counter-strike against the federal push, and there’s the specific strike against those who were or were alleged to be involved in turning and hiding Sillers.

Personal expectation is that this is going to get worse. Personal suspicion is that at some point the link I think exists between AB and TP gets exposed. That’s when things get interesting.

David Brooks: Immigration is the Easy Problem

The first big point from all this is that given the likely gridlock on tax reform and fiscal reform, immigration reform is our best chance to increase America’s economic dynamism. We should normalize the illegals who are here, create a legal system for low-skill workers and bend the current reform proposals so they look more like the Canadian system, which tailors the immigrant intake to regional labor markets and favors high-skill workers.

The second big conclusion is that if we can’t pass a law this year, given the overwhelming strength of the evidence, then we really are a pathetic basket case of a nation.

Here is what get’s me about the surge in gun and ammo sales.

You know when some people hear it is going to snow they run out and buy milk and other essentials, but mostly milk. Perhaps Southern Lizards will not of heard of this phenom. Anytime a big snow storm is predicted, stores will run out of milk.

Anyway, if this happens every day or even every other day, eventually people figure that the weatherman is “crying wolf” and quit buying milk.

re: #157 Gus

Oh goody. More craziness.

Nazism may have been an ideology to which the United States was — and to which the president is — implacably opposed, but it is hardly “senseless.” By the early 1930s, the Nazi party had hundreds of thousands of devoted members and repeatedly attracted a third of the votes in German elections; its political leaders campaigned on a platform comprising 25 non-senseless points, including the “unification of all Germans,” a demand for “land and territory for the sustenance of our people,” and an assertion that “no Jew can be a member of the race.” Suffice it to say, many sensible Germans were persuaded.
— Eliana Johnson, National Review

Yes, some of their policies did appeal to a lot of Germans, they offered a lot of things that sound “sensible” to our ears, (Autobahns, paid vacation, package tours for the working classes), they promoted a meritocracy over the priveleges of the class system, etc.

They appealed to the people’s desire for stability and order in a time of economic crisis and political strife that was paralyzing the country.

And they also appealed to an existing anti-Semitism, but in doing so, promoted it to an ideology and a body of legislation banning Jews from intermarriage, professional practices and restricting their property rights.

So WTF? I mean, WTFityFingF?

This was because Sears would give people who had shitty lives in bad Chicago neighborhoods a chance, and they succeeded in their positions and built better lives, but it created a visible division in workforce ability that an ignorant conservative could point to. It’s been years, and this is probably no longer the case with them in Hoffman Estates now.

At my current position two of three black males are mailroom staff, but we have several black and a couple of Indian females in positions of responsibility, so the environmental message isn’t quite right there either but it’s better.

I think college is the best place to learn that we’re all alike, because you’re exposed to people from different cultures and financial backgrounds that are all there to learn the same things you are because they have the same drives that you do. Plus young people tend to lack the ability to keep their laughter in when someone says something they think is stupid, so if you keep saying stupid things, you’re surrounded by laughter and derision and won’t get invited to the right parties.

Disclosure:I didn’t go to college, but was lucky enough to be raised by sensible blue-collar people who taught me right from wrong.

re: #253 HappyWarrior

Yeah. I really haven’t noticed any real dramatic changes in beer prices since I turned 21 in the later part of the Bush years. My beer expenses go up when I feel like being a beer snob and buy some IPAs as opposed to something cheaper like Rolling Rock but there really hasn’t been a that’s really not a dramatic increase at all. It’s like a six pack going from being 7.00$ to 7.25ish.

Didn’t read the story, but i this an average of all beer prices over enough of a sample size (in years) then it is the increase in specialty beer bringing up the average. Or the increase in fuel/transportation costs.

re: #253 HappyWarrior

It’s interesting. Miller and Bud, both part of larger conglomerates, increased their prices over the past couple of years. Modelo didn’t go along with the increases, and instead gained market share.

Now, Budweiser is about to try and buy the other 50% ownership stake in Modelo they don’t have.

Consolidating the market means the chances are that prices will go up for the big label brewer products.

You know, supply demand and market distortion.

Swanson: Wombs of Women on Birth Control ‘Embedded’ with ‘Dead Babies’

Well, here’s some medical research we hadn’t heard about. Generations Radio host Kevin Swanson, who last week delved memorably into feminist theory, tells us this week that “certain doctors and certain scientists” have researched the wombs of women on the pill and found “there are these little tiny fetuses, these little babies, that are embedded into the womb…Those wombs of women who have been on the birth control pill effectively have become graveyards for lots and lots of little babies.”

Wow. The implications of this stunning “research” could be quite impactful. But first, do we have a record of these “women” and their wombs that were studied? And there would have to be many of these women with wombs so we could, you know, have a sufficient sample size from which to draw conclusions. Thousands of women participants would be required I think to regard the “research” findings of this study as sufficiently rigorous. And was the sample random?

Citizens United To Supreme Court: Landmark School Desegregation Case Was Wrong

Citizens United, the conservative group that successfully sued to enable wealthy corporations to buy elections, also has it in for same-sex couples. Yet an amicus brief they recently filed in the Supreme Court backing the unconstitutional Defense of Marriage Act would not simply deny marriage equality to gay people, it calls upon the Supreme Court to toss out a landmark decision ending public school segregation in the District of Columbia and declare that the federal government is free to discriminate against minorities and women:

A few folks are tweeting that Newtown officials have decided to add armed guards to the schools there after this school year is done.

They’re going to be requesting federal and state reimbursement.

That’s an indication that the town doesn’t want to increase its own taxes to cover the costs, and are instead seeking federal and state funding to achieve their security goal. Watch that happen elsewhere in the country too.

But this isn’t the only kind of security measure that the town, or state of Connecticut are considering.

And security wont prevent guns from being brought in to a school, nor used in a school. All you have to do is see yesterday’s headlines to see how a student brought a handgun and nearly killed another student before being apprehended by a school guard in Georgia. The guard didn’t prevent the shooting, and some reports suggest that he had reloaded the gun before firing randomly and before he was apprehended. The school had two metal detectors, but it’s possible to avoid them since it’s a campus school - multiple buildings comprising the school property.

No, something has to be done besides put guards in the school (didn’t work), arm the school (didn’t work), fortify and install metal detectors (didn’t work).

Yeah. True point. Anyhow, on that note, I really liked the unit we had on the Harlem Renaissance when I was in 11th grade. We read poems by Hughes, Cullen, McKay, and others. This poem by Dunbar from before the Harlem Renaissance is still one of my favorites.

We Wear the Mask

WE wear the mask that grins and lies,
It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes,—
This debt we pay to human guile;
With torn and bleeding hearts we smile,
And mouth with myriad subtleties.

Why should the world be over-wise,
In counting all our tears and sighs?
Nay, let them only see us, while
We wear the mask.

We smile, but, O great Christ, our cries
To thee from tortured souls arise.
We sing, but oh the clay is vile
Beneath our feet, and long the mile;
But let the world dream otherwise,
We wear the mask!
