Kiss Jobs Goodbye With Minimum Wage Increase: Caroline Baum
07-15-2009  •  Bloomberg 
There is never a good time to raise the minimum wage. Just ask the people working in low-skilled jobs that are laid off as a result.

Now is a particularly bad time. Yet the federal minimum wage is scheduled to rise to $7.25 on July 24, the third step of a $2.10 increase enacted in 2007. In more than half the states, the minimum wage already exceeds the current national minimum of $6.55 an hour.

Al-Qaeda calls to avenge Uighurs

Al-Qaeda has vowed to avenge the deaths of Muslims in China's Urumqi city by targeting the country's workforce in northwest Africa.

The call for reprisals against China has come from Algerian-based Al-Qaeda, the South China Morning Post said, summarising the intelligence report by London-based risk analysis firm Stirling Assynt.

Israeli reservists take on 'most moral' military
07-15-2009  •  McClatchy News 
When Yehuda Shaul finished his required Israeli military service in 2004, he used his army discharge as seed money for Breaking the Silence, a reservists' group that challenges Israeli military policy.

On Wednesday, Breaking the Silence released its most ambitious project to-date: A 110-page collection of testimony from more than two dozen soldiers who fought in Gaza during lsrael's 22-day military offensive last winter.

Air Force Project Being Probed Is Linked to Rep. Murtha
07-15-2009  •  Washington Post 

When an Air Force command in north Florida sought new battlefield technologies,  Rep. John P. Murtha (D-Pa.) steered millions in federal dollars its way to hire defense contractors.

The research effort at the Pensacola Air Force base fell apart, however, when investigators found evidence that it was used to improperly pay a series of companies linked to Murtha. A handful of defense firms were paid for work that was never done or not called for in the contracts. Some of the companies involved, based in Wyoming, Florida and Murtha's district in Pennsylvania, had hidden owners, prosecutors allege; one was secretly owned by the Air Force official who helped approve the payments.

Stop Signs and Liberty - by Jeffrey A. Tucker

And then one day the stop sign was gone.

It was the very stop sign one block from my house that was oddly stationed at a low-traffic, 3-way intersection, tempting every driver to slow down but not come to a complete stop.

How the city cleaned up on that one! I have personally coughed up in excess of $1,000 for tickets there, one time receiving two tickets in as many days. This sign was even the reason that I spent a day in jail for failing to fork over when the judge said I should.

Something big and strange is floating through the Chukchi Sea.

Hunters started noticing the stuff last week. It's thick and dark and "gooey" and is drifting for miles in the cold Arctic waters.

The U.S. Coast Guard found "globs" of the stuff floating miles offshore Friday and collected samples for testing.

Physicists Propose Scheme for Teleporting Light Beams
07-15-2009  •  PhysOrg 
Usually when physicists talk about quantum teleportation, they're referring to the transfer of quantum states from one particle to another without a physical link. Now, physicists have investigated a slightly different form of teleportation, in which they teleport a quantum field, or an entire beam of light, from one location to another. This kind of "strong" teleportation is required for some quantum information applications, and could lead to the teleportation of quantum images.

This Monday our sorry excuse for a governor signed 79 (that’s right, 79!) new laws that will take effect September 30th. The Arizona Republic reported on 12 of them. Some look good; others look pretty bad. Either way, it’s still beyond the understanding of most libertarians why in the good Lord’s name we have so many laws in the first place.  Read Full Story

   So far the summer has been mild in the Washington, D.C., area. But for former Vice President Dick Cheney the temperature is well over 100 degrees. He is sweating profusely, and it is becoming increasingly clear why.

Cheney has broken openly with former President George W. Bush on one issue of transcendent importance " to Cheney. For whatever reason, Bush decided not to hand out blanket pardons before they both rode off into the sunset.

Arctic Sea Ice Collapse Beginning

Kwok and colleagues at NASA and the University of Washington, in Seattle, report that Arctic sea ice thinned dramatically between the winters of 2004 and 2008, with thin seasonal ice replacing thick, older ice as the dominant type for the first time on record. Using ICESat measurements, scientists found that overall Arctic sea ice thinned about 17.8 centimeters (7 inches) a year, for a total of 67 cm (2.2 feet) over four winters. The total area covered by the thicker, older, multi-year ice that survives one or more summers shrank by more than 40 percent.  Read Full Story

In developing tropical countries, where billions of poor people rely on rice as their staple food, “The benefits of such an improvement in the face of increasing world population, increasing food prices, and decreasing natural resources would, be immense,” he added.  Read Full Story

The return of the Dinosaur Age

That now brings up another issue. A previous post on the Antarctic ice core, established that every 100,000 years or so we swing by Sirius and get bathed in ultraviolet radiation for a thousand years or so. The effect of this is to essentially melt out a large part of the ice caps and add perhaps another couple of hundred feet of sea level. The temperature will rise several degrees on average and that surplus must migrate north. Far more importantly huge amounts of water will find its way into the atmosphere introducing enough rain to establish tropical conditions almost to the poles themselves. It also means a massive expansion of Amazon tropical rainforest like conditions far to the north. The Mississippi valley, the Sahara, the Outback, the Middle East will all become saturated swamplands fully able to support their own populations of crocodiles.  Read Full Story
