Duck-Fil-A, Or, The End Of ‘Duck Dynasty’

Phil Robertson, the don of all things Duck, has stepped in it now:

In statements that threaten the A&E reality hit’s wildly popular and uplifting brand of faith, family and hunting, the Robertson patriarch said:“Everything is blurred on what’s right and what’s wrong… Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.” Robertson then paraphrased Corinthians from the Bible:“Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

And if that wasn’t explicit enough, the “Duck Commander” added:“It seems like, to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man’s anus. That’s just me. I’m just thinking: There’s more there! She’s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know what I’m saying? But hey, sin: It’s not logical, my man. It’s just not logical.”

The magazine suggested Robertson’s son Jep endorsed his family’s beliefs:“We’re not quite as outspoken as my dad, but I’m definitely in line. If somebody asks, I tell ’em what the Bible says.”

Imagine that: openly pious Evangelical Christian duck hunters from northeastern Louisiana holding to normative Christian views about sexuality, and express that somewhat crudely. History’s Greatest Monsters!

Seriously, it’s probably over for the Duck Dynasty now. The Robertsons have touched the third rail of American media culture. The only way A&E holds on to them is because they’re cash cows. But it’s going to be hard for the family. I hope they’re ready for what’s coming. Wonder if you can get a serving duck down at the Chick-fil-A?

India is in an uproar. The U.S. arrested an Indian woman, a diplomat, who tried to get papers illegally for her housekeeper. The Indians are claiming she was strip searched and treated like a common criminal.
Whether this is true or not - and whether she broke the law in our country and should have been arrested or not - is not the issue.
If it turns out these accusations are true, they have good reason to be in an uproar.
But it mainly proves that, when liberals were screaming Bush was creating enemies around the world for protecting us and countries around the world, it didn't mean their anger was justified.
The U.S. is going to get blamed by lesser developed countries for just being the more developed, i.e. the more mature, like a parent who does the right thing in spite of being blamed and hated for doing so.
At least liberals know what's it like to be hated and blamed under a Democrat administration - if, in fact, it was the right thing to do.
(Didn't have to work today after all. But gotta go somewhere else now.)
maybe they should have raped her.

India would have been ok with that.

don't you just love double standards?

Cells taken from the retina are inkjet-printed for the first time
December 18, 2013

UK researchers have used inkjet printing technology to successfully print ganglion cells and glial cells taken from the eye for the very first time.

The breakthrough could lead to the production of artificial tissue grafts made from the variety of cells found in the human retina and may aid in the search to cure blindness.

The results are preliminary and provide proof-of-principle that an inkjet printer can be used to print the two types of intact cells from the retina of adult rats in patterns.

This is the first time the technology has been used successfully to print mature central nervous system cells and the results showed that printed cells remained healthy and retained their ability to survive and grow in culture.

The ability to arrange cells into highly defined patterns and structures has recently elevated the use of 3D printing in the biomedical sciences to create cell-based structures for use in regenerative medicine.

In their study, the researchers used a piezoelectric inkjet printer device that ejected the cells through a sub-millimeter diameter nozzle when a specific electrical pulse was applied. They also used high speed video technology to record the printing process with high resolution and optimised their procedures accordingly.

“In order for a fluid to print well from an inkjet print head, its properties, such as viscosity and surface tension, need to conform to a fairly narrow range of values. Adding cells to the fluid complicates its properties significantly,” commented Dr Wen-Kai Hsiao, another member of the team based at the Inkjet Research Centre in Cambridge.

The Race for Immortality
Ray Kurzweil thinks we can stay one step ahead of death.
By Will Oremus
Ray Kurzweil, 65, aims to kill death before it kills him.
Most of us accept that our lives are limited. We'll have a certain number of years—more than 75, we hope, but probably fewer than 100—and then we'll die. The world will go on without us. An awareness of our own mortality, we tell ourselves, is part of what makes is human.
Will Oremus
Not Ray Kurzweil. A renowned computer scientist and inventor, Kurzweil, 65, decided decades ago that mortality wasn't for him. He didn't have to die, and he wasn't going to, if he could help it. Fortunately, he believes he can help it—and he's been working feverishly at the task of staying alive ever since.
“How long do you think you will live?” I asked Kurzweil in a recent phone interview.
He rarely misses a beat in conversation, but he was quiet for just a moment before replying.“I think I have a good chance—I would put it at 80 percent—of getting to the point where it becomes indefinite, because you’ll be adding more time than is going by to your remaining life expectancy.”
In olden days, a man who insisted he could live forever would have been viewed as a strong candidate for either crucifixion or veneration. These days he’s a natural candidate for a top job at Google, where “solving death” is just another a pet project of CEO and co-founder Larry Page. Kurzweil is a part-time adviser to the company’s new Calico venture, which is focused on finding a cure for aging. But his day job is as an engineering director, working alongside a younger generation of artificial-intelligence wizards on, among other things, a project called “Google Brain.” His goals at Google, which include teaching machines to understand language, dovetail in somewhat complex ways with his overarching goal of cheating death.
Where Spanish adventurers believed in the Fountain of Youth, Kurzweil believes in what the mathematician John von Neumann called the “singularity”—a point in human progress at which our machines become as smart as we are. They won’t rise against us, though, because they will by that point be very much a part of us. Already our smartphones are becoming extensions of our minds. Kurzweil forecasts that we’ll eventually be implanting computers and nanobots in our bodies and brains to enhance their natural functions.(That’s bridge two on the road to immortality, in Kurzweil’s scheme.) And someday—by 2045, to be precise—we’ll have machines so sophisticated that we’ll essentially be able to back up our minds to the cloud.(That’s bridge three.)
Even if the singularity is near, there’s no guarantee Kurzweil will live to see it.
Kurzweil has spread his ideas widely and defended them energetically against critics, of whom there are many. He has made many predictions, a surprising number of which have come true, like his late-1980s forecast that a computer would win the world chess championship by 2000. He seems unperturbed by the ones that haven't, like his 1999 bet that within 10 years a majority of text would be created using continuous speech recognition.(Kurzweil insists that he was not far off, citing Siri as an example.) He's a variety of believer—not in any god, but in the potential of humans to achieve godlike powers with the aid of the technologies we build.
