Study: Poor children have smaller brains than wealthy peers - The MIT study comes a few weeks after a similar one by Stanford University researchers found that children from low-income backgrounds tend to have smaller brains, overall, than their wealthier peers. The brain of a child whose family earns less than $25,000 annually is 6% smaller in surface area than a child whose parents earned more than $150,000, according to the study, published in Nature Neuroscience. Maybe it's the diet of Cheetos, Tater Tots, Coca-Cola, and Mac and Cheese.

Top scientists start to examine fiddled global warming figures - Something very odd has been going on with those official surface temperature records, all of which ultimately rely on data compiled by NOAA’s GHCN. Careful analysts have come up with hundreds of examples of how the original data recorded by 3,000-odd weather stations has been “adjusted”, to exaggerate the degree to which the Earth has actually been warming. Figures from earlier decades have repeatedly been adjusted downwards and more recent data adjusted upwards, to show the Earth having warmed much more dramatically than the original data justified.

Creflo Dollar Says the Devil Blocked His Dreams of a $65,000,000 Jet - Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get hundreds, or even thousands, of people you don’t even know to donate to your worthy cause? Even if that cause was a $65 million private jet, all in the name of God, because it’s a dream of yours? In the mind of Creflo Dollar, you can’t stop him from dreaming. Dollar (Dollar Bill) blasted critics of his recent jet-fundraising endeavors during a recent church sermon. Dollar took issue with those who felt it was wrong for him to reach deep into the pockets of his congregation and ask them to donate to his $65 million dream jet because a pastor can’t travel coach, apparently. His critics were compared to the devil, and he doesn’t appreciate them trying to discredit him and his dreams of flying high in a G650.
