The Jihadi Serial Killer no Ones Talking About – Michelle Malkin
“Meet Ali Muhammad Brown. His homicidal Islamic terror spree took him from coast to coast. The 29-year-old career thug admitted to killing Leroy Henderson in Seattle in April; Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young in Seattle on June 1; and college student Brendan Tevlin, 19, in Essex County, New Jersey, on June 25. Tevlin was gunned down in his family Jeep on his way home from a friend’s house. Ballistics and other evidence linked all the victims to Muhammad Brown. Police apprehended him last month hiding in an encampment near the Watchung Mountains of West Orange, New Jersey.
While he was on the run, he disguised himself in a Muslim keffiyeh. He carried a notebook with jihadist scribblings and advice on evading detection. I obtained the latest charging documents filed in Washington state, which detail the defiant domestic terrorist’s motives.”
Ferguson: Not Even An O.J. Jury Would Convict Officer Wilson – Larry Elder
“Witnesses who definitively assert that officer Wilson “shot him in the back” have been contradicted by the Brown family’s own medical expert, respected pathologist Dr. Michael Baden, who conceded the wounds could be consistent with Brown charging toward Wilson, not running away…..
If it’s true that the 6-foot-4-inch, nearly 300-pound Brown struggled with the officer in the squad car, and if it is true that after breaking free Brown turned around and came back at Wilson, the officer had every reason to fear for his safety and for the safety of others. After all, there had been a struggle in the police vehicle over the officer’s gun, during which at least one shot was fired, although witnesses contradict each other or have given different versions about the initial contact in the vehicle.”

“Families with Diabetes Produce Strong Athletes
A study from Italy shows that elite track and field athletes who have a family history of diabetes have larger muscles, weigh more, and are better athletes (Springerplus, 2014;3:224). Forty six young male élite athletes were tested; thirteen with a family history of diabetes and thirty-three without. The athletes were asked to pedal or run as hard and fast as they could against a constant resistance. Those with a family history of diabetes were able to develop greater peak anaerobic power and anaerobic capacity while running and cycling.
Why This is True
Diabetics have high blood levels of a hormone called Insulin like growth factor one (IGF-1) that prevents them from responding to insulin that controls blood sugar levels. It also makes muscles larger and stronger. Sedentary people with a family history of diabetes also are heavier and have larger muscles (Acta Diabetol. 2014 Feb;51(1):79-84 and Iran J Public Health, 2013, Jul 1;42(7):681-90).
What This Means for People Who Are Already Diabetic
Diabetics should realize that the same genetic factors that increased their risk for diabetes can also make them better athletes. Furthermore, exercise is a major treatment for diabetes.
When blood sugar levels rise too high, sugar sticks to the outer membranes of cells and destroys them to damage arteries to cause heart attacks, brain cells to cause dementia, nerves to cause impotence, kidneys to cause kidney failure and so forth.
Muscles that are contracting lower blood sugar levels by drawing sugar from the bloodstream without needing insulin and continue to do so for up to 17 hours after a person finishes exercising. Resting muscle do not draw significant sugar from the bloodstream and to draw any sugar, resting muscles need insulin.
* Young people in families with a history of diabetes should be singled out early in life and encouraged to develop strength and skill in the sport of their choice. They may be rewarded with scholarships and perhaps be good enough for professional sports. They should also be counseled to maintain lifelong fitness and weight control, since they are likely to become diabetic if they become out-of-shape and gain weight.
* People who are already diabetic should be told that the same factors that increased their risk for diabetes can also make them better athletes. They should be encouraged to check with their doctors for potential complications, and then start an exercise and strength-training program that can be more effective in treating their diabetes than any drug that they are taking.”
¡No Pasarán!: Unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too focused on looking for something else.
“I gave both lucky and unlucky people a newspaper, and asked them to look through it and tell me how many photographs were inside. On average, the unlucky people took about two minutes to count the photographs, whereas the lucky people took just seconds. Why? Because the second page of the newspaper contained the message: “Stop counting. There are 43 photographs in this newspaper.” This message took up half of the page and was written in type that was more than 2in high. It was staring everyone straight in the face, but the unlucky people tended to miss it and the lucky people tended to spot it.”
“I’ve decided not to riot today. I’m fairly certain I’m not going to loot anything. I don’t feel like overcoming, or singing about overcoming. I’m overcome with not overcoming, actually. I believe I can resist the urge to lock arms for days at a time. I do not wish to be quoted in the press. You can quote me on that. On to the news. “
Ferguson riots are another symptom of a community looking outward for a solution to their problems. True there are real injustices and cops can be racist and that must be addressed, but the vast majority of the misery inflicted on the black community comes from within.

Emerging Solar Plants Scorch Birds in Mid-Air – ABC News.
Imagine if the birds were covered in oil.
“Workers at a state-of-the-art solar plant in the Mojave Desert have a name for birds that fly through the plant’s concentrated sun rays — “streamers,” for the smoke plume that comes from birds that ignite in midair.
Federal wildlife investigators who visited the BrightSource Energy plant last year and watched as birds burned and fell, reporting an average of one “streamer” every two minutes, are urging California officials to halt the operator’s application to build a still-bigger version.”
