Walt Disney: American Dreamer

From Prager University:

Walt Disney was the twentieth century’s prime example of American ingenuity. How did he do it? In this video, Glenn Beck, best-selling author and host of The Glenn Beck Program, explains how Disney became a household name, and how he proved that in America, the only limit to your ambition is your own imagination.




Ooops! The Best Laid Plans……

We actually had another post scheduled for today ant then late last night we got an email from one of our sources who asked that we hold off on it.

We are nothing if not accommodating.

So today’s scheduled post will most likely hit tomorrow. In the meantime, take a couple seconds and watch a new Guinness World Record being set in the solving of a Rubic’s Cube in 4.221 seconds.

Do You Have A Maximum Heart Rate?

Even we get tired of all the politics sometimes and take a break by looking at other things.

Does your heart rate have an upper limit and could you ever reach it?




Can Climate Models Predict Climate Change?

Predicting climate temperatures isn’t science – it’s science fiction. Emeritus Professor of Physics at Princeton University Will Happer explains.




Building The World’s Largest Telescope.

We have to admit, when we first saw this title, we thought it would be an informative, but rather boring video.

That all changed when the head of the project says “Each mirror takes seven years to make.”

Seven years.

Underneath the University of Arizona’s football stadium are the beginnings of the Giant Magellan Telescope, set to be the largest optical telescope in the world. The Richard F. Caris Mirror Laboratory is the only place equipped to manufacture gigantic 27-foot tall mirrors, the kind needed to build the heart of the Magellan. Each of the seven mirrors that will comprise the telescope weigh in at 17-tons and will produce images with 10 times the resolution of the Hubble Space Telescope, giving scientists an unprecedented look into the fringes of our universe.

Amazing.



It’s Friday, But Sunday’s Coming.

We’re Number 1! (And That Is Not A Good Thing.)

Each year the American Tort Reform Association releases a report which ranks “judicial hellholes” in the United States.

This year the number one spot for being the worst jurisdiction falls flat in the lap of the State of Florida.

We’re number one! We’re number one! We’re number one!

Ugh.

From the report’s executive summary:

#1 FLORIDA The Florida Supreme Court’s liability-expanding decisions and barely contained contempt for the lawmaking authority of legislators and the governor has repeatedly led to its inclusion in this report. And though the high court’s plaintiff-friendly majority this year shrunk from 5-2 to 4-3, a

hushed discus­sion between two majority justices recently caught by an open microphone suggests that this majority is as partisan as ever and brazenly determined to influence the judicial selection process as three like-minded col­leagues face mandatory retirement in early 2019.

Meanwhile, an aggressive personal injury bar’s fraudulent and abusive practices in South Florida and elsewhere have also tarnished the state’s reputation. Encouragingly, at least some plaintiffs’ lawyers who’ve crossed the line are being held accountable, either with stiff court sanctions or criminal prosecutions. But with the help of some lawmakers, too many are still get­ting away with too much, and for the first time in this report’s 16-year history, enough shade has been cast on the Sunshine State to rank it as the nation’s worst Judicial Hellhole.

This type of judicial abuse hits us all in the pocketbooks:
