As Reason’s editor defends its racist history, here’s a copy of its holocaust denial “special issue” By Mark Ames On July 24, 2014 “The German concentration camps weren’t health centers, but they appear to have been far smaller and much less lethal than the Russian ones.”

As Reason’s editor defends its racist history, here’s a copy of its holocaust denial “special issue”

Half Male, Half Female, Total Animal - Issue 13: Symmetry

Nets in hand, James Adams and his friend Irving Finkelstein watched the insects lapping up salts and proteins dissolved in the muddy water, their folded wings yawning apart now and then. There were silvery-blue Celastrinas and Skippers the color of cinnamon and ash. Largest of all were the Tiger Swallowtails—pastel lemon males with black dagger-like stripes and midnight-dark females with a dusting of evening cerulean. Suddenly a very odd creature flitted past Adams and Finkelstein—a swallowtail unlike any they had ever seen. Its left half was yellow; its right, black. Daily Menu. © 2013 Winterlife Coop.

The Great War Revisited by George Weigel

It was World War I: the civilizational cataclysm that began, according to conventional chronology, when Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, was assassinated in the Bosnian capital on June 28, 1914, by Gavrilo Princip, a twenty-year-old Bosnian Serb. World War I was known for decades as the “Great War.” It seems an apt title. Manyland. Everything is Leaf - April 23, 2014.

A Mathematical Proof That The Universe Could Have Formed Spontaneously From Nothing — The Physics arXiv Blog

This is not just an idea but a scientific theory backed up by numerous lines of evidence. For a start, there is the cosmic microwave background, which is a kind of echo of the big bang; then there is the ongoing expansion of the cosmos, which when imagined backwards, hints at a Big Bang-type origin; and the abundance of the primordial elements, such as helium-4, helium-3, deuterium and so on, can all be calculated using the theory. But that still leaves a huge puzzle. What caused the Big Bang itself? Species of Spaces and Other Pieces (Penguin Classics): Georges Perec, John Sturrock: 9780141442242: Amazon.com.

America’s First Popular Men’s Magazine: The National Police Gazette. Several years ago I was wandering the stacks at the University of Tulsa library when I happened to chance upon an old, pink book with the words “Police Gazette” gilded on the spine in fancy script. I don’t know why, but I took it off the shelf and started to thumb through it.

Inside I found page after page of 19th-century newspaper re-prints that featured big, bold, and inflammatory headlines along with cool illustrations of bare-knuckle pugilists, old-time strongmen, and lots of women in bloomers slugging each other senseless. Little did I know that the musty book in my hands was a collection of facsimiles of America’s first hugely popular men’s magazine: The National Police Gazette. Is Glenn Greenwald the Future of News? Dear Bill, I have just a couple of last, quick points. My “contempt” for David Brooks is grounded in his years of extreme war cheerleading and veneration of an elite political class that has produced little beyond abject failure and corruption.
