More Rockets At UN Schools in Gaza

For second time, rockets found at UN school in Gaza | The Times of Israel.

Rockets found by UN staff at a UN school last week were not destroyed. No, they were returned to Hamas so they could be launched into Israel. The UN has taken sides. The media should be condemning Hamas for using civilians as human shields.

“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the organization said in a statement issued Tuesday. “As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.”

Street art in Tower Hamlets vandalised after youths claim it depicts ‘Djall’…the anti-Christ

Originally posted on Trial by Jeory:

I wrote this today for the Express website. It’s one of those stories that journalists file under ‘you couldn’t make it up’ for its weirdness: a filmmaker commissions some street art in the middle of Whitechapel’s Chicksand estate; the artists come up with a scheme that’s meant to depict humanity and diversity (and add a bit of colour to the area); and then some idiots say, ‘Actually that’s not humanity, that’s the Anti-Christ.’

They then start pelting the art (on a shop’s security shutters) with spit and eggs. But because that’s not frightening enough, they chuck the eggs at the staff inside the office, then threaten them this violence will continue until the art is removed.

And all this has happened for the best part of a month under the gaze of a Tower Hamlets council CCTV camera…with, as yet, no action (I asked the council for a comment, but they…

New paper finds transient climate sensitivity to doubling of CO2 is about 1°C

Originally posted on Watts Up With That?:

A new paper published in Ecological Modelling finds climate sensitivity to doubled CO2 concentrations is significantly lower than estimates from the IPCC and climate models which “utilize uncertain historical data and make various assumptions about forcings.” The author instead uses a ‘minimal model’ with the fewest possible assumptions and least data uncertainty to derive a transient climate sensitivity of only 1.093C:

Large Retailers Provide Higher Wages

Large Retailers Provide Higher Wages, More Opportunities than Small Retailers.

The number of “modern retailers” (large firms and chains) in the United States is growing — a positive development for retail employees:

  • As firms grow in size, wages increase, even after controlling for worker quality and work conditions.
  • Large firms (those with 1,000 or more workers) pay high-school-educated employees 15 percent more than do small firms (those with less than 10 employees). They pay those with at least some college education 25 percent more than small firms.
  • At establishments with 500 or more workers, pay for high-school-educated employees is 26 percent higher than at establishments with less than 10 workers. Employees with at least some college education receive pay that is 36 percent higher at large establishments than at small ones.

Democrats: Party of Big Money

The Lefts Dark Money Managers: Meet Philip Gara LaMarche – Michelle Malkin

There’s a lot of money to be made exploiting social justice, climate change and income inequity and it sounds like these guys know how it’s done.

While they bash Wall Street publicly, DA leaders have quietly recruited venture capitalists, bankers and hedge fund moguls — along with union bosses and red-diaper trust fund babies — to fund their takeover goals. Public school educators who belong to the American Federation of Teachers, headed by $500,000-plus yearly salaried President Randi Weingarten, should know that $230,000 of their hard-earned union dues go to DA, as Lachlan Markay of the Washington Free Beacon has reported”

Do Blacks Need Favors?

Do Blacks Need Favors? – Walter E. Williams

“Civil rights organizations and their progressive allies, who all but suggest that blacks cannot achieve unless they are given special privileges, grossly insult and demean black people. But worse than that, when civil rights organizations and their progressive allies pursue special privileges for blacks in college admissions and when they attack academic performance standards as racially discriminatory, they are aiding and abetting an education establishment that delivers fraudulent education. They let educators off the hook, thereby enabling them to continue to produce educational fraud.”
