The Tea Party, Occupy Movement, Voter Apathy and The Broken Two Party System

 

The Tea Party has risen to become a legitimate political movement, pulling the GOP to the right.  Their platform is clear and straightforward:  less government, less government spending, less government taxes.  Often described as the fringe base of the GOP, the Tea Party is loose knit organization with political power.  One only has to look at the GOP primary race to see them flexing their new found political muscle.

There are a couple phrases that one hears often during the presidential primaries.  Talking heads have said “Republicans don’t fall in love, they fall in line.” The mature Tea Party is trying to prove that statement false.  We also hear “Getting Liberals to stand behind a common issue is like herding cats.” The less mature Occupy Movement is proving that statement correct. «Read the rest of this article»

The Spark of a New Era

 

Written by DC Agle
Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Seventy-five years ago this Halloween, at 9:00am, a truck from the California Institute of Technology turned on to a road owned by the Pasadena Water Department and after heading down a small hill came to a stop. Its tired occupants – they had spent the night before preparing and had only three hours sleep – clambered out and began the laborious job of carrying a truck full of cumbersome test equipment another 400 yards into the dirt and scruffy brush of Pasadena’s Arroyo Seco.

They were there in an isolated, dry, scrub-strewn gulch three miles north of the Rose Bowl to scientifically measure the thrust developed by one of the world’s first liquid-fueled rocket motors. They were there to accurately calculate the efficiency of the motor. They were there because, there, they most likely would not kill anyone – except perhaps themselves.

Halloween Food Safety Tips for Parents

 

Take these simple steps to help your children have a fun – and safe – Halloween

U.S. Food and Drug Administration - FDA

Washington, D.C. – Children shouldn’t snack while they’re out trick-or-treating.  Urge your children to wait until they get home and you have had a chance to inspect the contents of their “goody bags.” To help prevent children from snacking, give them a light meal or snack before they head out – don’t send them out on an empty stomach.

Tell children not to accept – and especially not to eat – anything that isn’t commercially wrapped. Parents of very young children should remove any choking hazards such as gum, peanuts, hard candies or small toys. «Read the rest of this article»
