Trump has long been a climate change denier, calling global warming "a hoax" created "by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive." When asked by reporters on Thursday if he still believes climate change isn't real, Trump said, "No, no. Not all all. Nothing's a hoax. ... It's a very serious subject. The environment is very important to me. I'm a big believer in that word, the environment. ... I want clean air, I want clean water. I also want jobs, though."https://theweek.com/speedreads/888638/trump-now-says-climate-change-serious-not-hoax

Making the playoffs would be nice, but player development is the mission of this Steelers’ season
Pittsburgh Steelers fans want a playoff berth, and while that would be nice it isn’t the most important aspect of this season.
t’s been said the only certainties in life are death and taxes. However, following the loss of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in the second week of the season, a 1-4 start and subsequent injuries to several more of their best players, the Steelers failing to qualify for the post-season this year seemed as destined as rigor mortise.
And yet, after Sunday’s 16-10 win over the Bengals, they somehow find themselves with a 6-5 record and, if the playoffs started today, an invitation to the post-season as the No. 6 seed.
To say this qualifies as a surprise vastly undersells what it means to be surprised.
The unit that took the field on offense against Cincinnati reminded me of the strike season of 1987, when I watched a Steelers team stocked with replacement players and asked questions like, “Who’s that guy?” “When did we get a number 17?” And, “Is that my gym teacher playing receiver?” Kerrith Whyte and Deon Cain were the newest additions to the rotation but many non-Steelers fans watching the game would have struggled to identify Devlin Hodges, Benny Snell Jr, Diontae Johnson, James Washington, Tevin Jones, Trey Edmunds and Jaylen Samuels as well. Every name on that list is either a rookie, a second year player or a practice squad alum. Only four of the nine were on the Steelers roster when the season began. None were penciled in as starters.
All played prominent roles against the Bengals.https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2019/11/26/20980983/making-the-playoffs-would-be-nice-but-player-development-is-the-mission-of-this-steelers-season-nfl

ATLANTA, Ga. – An improving Wildcats defensive unit picked up its first award. Fort Valley State defensive end Jahseari Patterson produced his best outing of his three-year career and earned the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week honor.
Patterson was half of the outstanding FVSU defensive end duo with Demetrius Harris and led the FVSU defense to its best stifling of an opponent in over two years. The Wildcats (5-2/3-0 SIAC East) defense held Morehouse College to only 128 yards of total offense and two field goals of the 37-21 victory in last Saturday afternoon's Homecoming game.
Individually, Patterson of Cairo, Ga., registered nine tackles, his season best, but it was his other statistics, which stood out the most. The junior sacked the Maroon Tigers quarterbacks to a total of 4.5 sacks, he combined with Harris on one sack, for 35 yards, five tackles for loss of 37 yards, forced two fumbles (one of which Harris returned for a touchdown), one fumble recovery (which Harris forced) and credited with three quarterback hurries. https://fvsusports.com/news/2019/10/22/football-patterson-leads-wildcats-defenders-to-siac-defensive-player-of-the-week-honor.aspx

Wildcats' Jarman Makes it Three SIAC Offensive Player of the Week Awards in a Row
ATLANTA, Ga. – One honor is good, two is better, but the Wildcats signal-caller made it a true run of league awards on Tuesday afternoon. Fort Valley State quarterback Slade Jarman made it three Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week football awards.
With his five-touchdown performance and another two defensive scores, Jarman was a big part of the Wildcats scoring their most points in a game in at least a dozen seasons, 77-34, at Central State last Saturday afternoon.https://fvsusports.com/news/2019/10/15/football-wildcats-jarman-makes-it-three-siac-offensive-player-of-the-week-awards-in-a-row.aspx

WILBERFORCE, Ohio – After capturing the lead with 4:59 left in the second quarter, the Wildcats defense lit the fuse to pull away Saturday afternoon. The Fort Valley State defense forced back-to-back fumbles and returned both for identical 68-yard touchdowns and the offense scored eight touchdowns and a pair of field goals in a point explosion of a 77-34 football victory over Central State.
Following a Marlon Fleming two-yard plunge to retake a 25-20 lead, the Wildcats (4-2/2-0 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference East) Kentron James picked up a fumble from the grass on the second Marauders (2-4/1-1 SIAC West) play of the ensuing drive for the touchdown. It was déjà vu as Aaron Dore repeated the same 68-yard fumble return feat and turned the tide for good in a matter of 2:09 leading into the half ahead 37-20.
FVSU quarterback Slade Jarman engineered a 64-yard touchdown drive on the second half's first possession when he hit Shemar Bridges from 18 yards for a 45-20 margin 2:04 into the third quarter. The Wildcats offense scored five touchdowns and a 32-yard Eli Mashburn field goal in six second-half possessions to keep the Marauders at bay.
The Wildcats posted their fourth win in a row, tying the longest such streak under head coach Kevin Porter, and second winning run of four consecutive since Oct. 7 through 28 games of the 2017 season. https://fvsusports.com/news/2019/10/12/football-wildcats-two-fumble-return-touchdowns-ignite-point-explosion-over-marauders.aspx

The BOXTOROW National Player of the Week, Jarman, posted his best game of his Wildcat career with six touchdown passes, including four coming as part of a 29-point second quarter.

Eight months after first raising the idea, President Trump on Wednesday said his administration is again “very seriously” looking into ending the practice of conferring U.S. citizenship on anyone born in the United States.
“We’re looking at that very seriously, birthright citizenship, where you have a baby on our land, you walk over the border, have a baby — congratulations, the baby is now a U.S. citizen,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House. “It’s frankly ridiculous.”
In October, on the eve of the 2018 midterm elections, Trump said he believed he could end birthright citizenship by executive order, claiming it was not part of the U.S. Constitution, and predicting the question would ultimately be settled by the Supreme Court.
The legal consensus is that birthright citizenship is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. It reads: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.”https://news.yahoo.com/trump-very-seriously-end-birthright-citizenship-193525289.html?.tsrc=notification-brknews

This an old article, but I am posting it to enlighten OS and y.
Most people know about the Nazi Holocaust, the murder of 6 million Jews and 6 million others: Russians, Gypsies, Slavs, socialists, disabled people and LGBT people.https://www.dreamdeferred.org.uk/2014/04/the-holocausts-forgotten-victims-the-rhineland-bastards/
Alongside the big narrative of the Holocaust there are a myriad of small, individual stories and testimonies that help illustrate and shed light on the cruelty and barbarity of the Nazi regime.

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan said last month that the Indo-Pacific region was the US's most important theater from a security perspective. While he did not mention China by name last month during a speech in Singapore, he levied thinly failed criticism toward Beijing for using what he called a "toolkit of coercion."https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/08/politics/russia-china-partnership/index.html
That toolkit included island-building, deploying advanced weapons systems to disputed areas, engaging in predatory economics and the alleged state-sponsored theft of military and civilian technology -- all activities the US has previously accused China of undertaking.
While the US and China have sparred over the South China Sea for years, Russia has been strengthening ties with countries in the region.

This latest incident comes just days after the US Navy accused Russia of intercepting a US aircraft and amid tensions with Moscow on a wide range of geopolitical issues.https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/07/politics/us-russia-navy-near-collision-intl/index.htmlOS, what's up with this crap
Last month, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Russian Vladimir Putin in the resort town of Sochi, where he warned Russia about interfering in US elections, taking a tougher public line than President Donald Trump on the issue.
It also comes at a time of increasing cooperation between China and Russia. After a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the Kremlin Wednesday, Russian leader Vladimir Putin said relations between the two countries have reached an "unprecedented level."

Washington (CNN)US F-22 stealth jets intercepted four Russian bombers and two Russian Su-35 fighter jets off the coast of Alaska on Monday, according to a statement from North American Aerospace Defense Command.
The Russian nuclear capable long-range bombers flew into the Air Defense Identification Zone, which extends approximately 200 miles off Alaska's western coast.
The Russian bomber flights are seen by US military officials as part of Moscow's effort to train its military for a potential crisis while simultaneously sending a message of strength to adversaries.
This latest intercept comes amid tensions with Russia on a wide range of geopolitical issues and a week after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met Russian Vladimir Putin in the resort town of Sochi where he warned Russia about interfering in US elections, taking a tougher public line than President Donald Trump on the issue.https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/21/politics/russian-bombers-alaska-intercept/index.html
