I Need a Dollar: Should You Give to New York's Homeless? - In big cities, being confronted by panhandlers is a daily occurrence. On street corners, trains, and inside of stores, someone always has their hand out. In those fleeting moments, we're faced with a very important decision—do we sympathize with the person's plight, reach into our wallets, pull out a crisp Washington and hand it over politely; or, do we ignore the requests from the less fortunate and carry on with whatever we were already doing?

Sarah Palin's Low-Budget TV Channel Is Pricier Than Netflix - Sarah Palin is returning to her roots in low-budget television—but this time, she's on the web, the focus is American politics, and she owns the network. The Sarah Palin Channel launched Sunday, asking prospective viewers for $9.95 per month–96 cents more than Netflix–or $99.95 a year. (No word on whether subscribers get money back if Palin decides to stick with the project for only half of that term.) The cost is the same as GBTV, the web-TV channel run by Glenn Beck, a role model for wealthy media figures who hope to monetize the cult of personality they've built up by expertly playing to the cultural affinities and anxieties of Red America.

Right-Wing Christians ans Republican Policies Are Making America Stupid - Intelligence is defined in different ways, but generally it is a human being’s capacity for logic, abstract thought, self-awareness, learning, communication, memory, and problem solving among many other things including emotional knowledge. As one might expect, emotional knowledge is not always related to intelligence, at least not in the traditional sense. Emotion can be counterintuitive to logic, abstract thought, and problem solving, and in fact emotion is a feeling that is the polar opposite of logic and reason, and a primary driver of emotional knowledge is religion. The preponderance of fundamentalist Christians in America are why so many Americans are comparatively unintelligent when it comes to scientific knowledge that drives the epidemic of stupidity of Americans, primarily in the South, subscribing to hazardous Republican policies.

For proof, just see NeoCon and Azprick's inane remarks.

Which of these Monets is a nanoprinted forgery? (Wired UK) - Look closely. Can you tell the difference between these two images? One's a bona fide reprint of Claud Monet's "Impression, Sunrise." The other? A total fake. The reproduction (on the right) is courtesy of researchers at Singapore's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering. Their goal, of course, was not to simply make a Monet replica, but rather to test an emerging method of printing that could potentially be used in the future to enable high-res displays and print foolproof anti-counterfeiting materials.

They were then buried in the crates they were shipped in, rather than let them fall into enemy hands, said David Cundall, an aviation enthusiast who has spent 15 years and about $200,000 in his efforts to reveal the lost planes.
