Jerry Coyne thinks " "bull-goose loon" is an insult. The phrase comes from Ken Kesey's 'One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest'... when McMurphy arrives in the psych ward-- he declares himself the new Bull-Goose Loony... then valiantly attempts to rally the other patients against the dreary, soul-killing, institutional, hillary-rodham-esque Nurse Ratched.

The UK already has mosques, minarets and faithful Muslims, something which an Islamic poem says corresponds to barracks, bayonets and soldiers respectively, so I suppose madrassas are not far off.

Ah yes, well, the school does describe itself as having an "Islamic ethos" - I guess that's what that means.

That school needs to be shut down and the teachers need to be punished. If not, we truly live in clown world.
Indeed - this is a direct and open challenge to the government. If this stands, the UK will be swamped by madrassas in the next decade.

My conclusion after reading the letter is that it is direct and to the point and the world would be a lot better off with less polished mealy-mouthed cynical bullshit and more of this kind of thing. Maybe Trump has fucked up in Syria, I don't know, but I'm inclined to wonder how people thought allying with an extremist Kurdish group in Syria that almost everyone other than Israel, the US and Iran(?) hated would play out. Turkey has every reason not to want them on their border and they have the valid justification that they've received little help from the EU with the millions of refugees they're hosting and they need to create a zone in Syria to house them. Obama is the one who got the US into this mess but I doubt he'll get any of the blame.
I'm curious, just what is it they wanted Trump to say? "Oh please, mister dictator, would you kindly cease your offensive on Syria?" Besides, they'd previously criticised Trump for his refusal to withdraw troops from Syria. Now that troops HAVE withdrawn, he's being hammered with that, too? It's difficult to discern what's legitimate criticism and what's not. And I don't even like Trump. Did they expect him to coddle a war criminal?

Hey, PZ. It's been a while since I gave you your latest lifestyle advice. Free of charge.

1. Got to your local hospital, and scoop out/pour all the contents of the commodes into a large barrel.
2. Take the barrel home, and place it above a large fire.
3. Allow the contents to heat up (a couple of hours, perhaps), so that it a fine, runny, smooth, bubbly and 'melted chocolate' like substance.
4. Open the barrel at the lid and scoop about a litre of your free treat into your favourite bowl. Grab a spoon as well.
5. Sit down, place the bowl in front of you, lick your lips, and inhale fully.
6. Eat your 'bowl of soup' at your own leisure. Bon Appétit!
7. Repeat steps 2-6 for the next month or so, until contents run out.
8. Now you can fuck off, wanker.

I use a laser bore sighting 'cartridge' for roughly sighting in my 30-30. Used it just last week having put on a ghost ring rear sight. Let's me get things in the ballpark at 50 yards, so fewer rounds used to get the '94 dead on. John Moses Browning may have been a Mormon, but he was a great man.

I haven't really looked into the environmental impact of agriculture, but I will say that it seems obvious to me that raising cattle naturally on grassland has a lot less impact on the environment than growing crops, so perhaps we should just accept paying a little more for meat.

I'm wondering if anyone here can cast their minds back to the halcyon days of 1992 - when it appears that people in London's East End were nostalgic for the late 1960s when the Krays put a smile on at least one person's face.

There's something about book dealing - with the eponymous tome purportedly written by Flann O'Brien and of course Magick.

Fort Worth requires 8 months at its academy, plus 16 weeks as a trainee, as well as:
Required Examinations

Civil Service Exam

Physical Ability Test

Personal History Booklet (PHB)
After successfully passing the written examination, the PHB requiring detailed information regarding educational background, employment history, military service, references and arrest record (including traffic violations) must be completed by required deadline. Original documents such as birth certificates, social security card, high school and college diplomas and transcripts, driver’s license, marriage certificate, divorce decree, and military discharge papers will also be required after you enter the background phase.

Polygraph
Applicants will be required to take a polygraph test examination during the background investigation.

Background Investigation
The Police Department will conduct a thorough background investigation to verify information given by the applicant in the Personal History Booklet. After successful completion of the background investigation applicants will be given a Conditional Offer of Employment letter which will be based on passing the psychological and medical evaluations.

Physological Evaluation
Applicants will be administered a battery of psychological tests. A licensed psychologist will evaluate the applicant’s responses to determine suitability for police work. Final appointment will be contingent upon the results of the psychological evaluation.

Medical Examination
http://fortworthtexas.gov/hr/PoliceRecruitment/

Fort Worth PD is currently overstaffed, so it's not like they're desperate to hire just anybody.

The psych eval (the MMPI being the most common one used), if conducted with care, should weed out 'hot-heads'.

The written exam should weed out stupid applicants. However, to pass, one only needs to achieve a score of 61 out of 100 (also known as a 'D' in US schools). One may also add up to five points for things like serving in the military or living within the county.
http://fortworthtexas.gov/hr/policerecr ... igibility/

Why so low? Because it's an aptitude test. And aptitude tests are essentially veiled Intelligence tests. And intelligence tests yield widely disparate results by race. And any employment test that yields disparate results by race is illegal (cf. Griggs v. Duke Power, 1971) To avoid running afoul of Griggs, employers just lower the bar.

I think increased training for LEO would be grand. But it won't do a thing if acceptance standards are the equivalent of a 'D' grade.
So then perhaps it's not the training that's insufficient, but the way that applicants are marked and graded? I think that deserves looking into.

Been a while since I've seen True Grit, but by the specter of The Duke, that is special. :clap:

The way he reloads is especially precious. Ahnold would reprise it 22 years later in T2. :lol:

All that video corroborates is that one of Fort Worth's 1,700 police did not follow official procedure or heed his training, in particular, not announcing himself as the police. So, was he stupid? A hot-head?

Fort Worth requires 8 months at its academy, plus 16 weeks as a trainee, as well as:
Required Examinations

Civil Service Exam

Physical Ability Test

Personal History Booklet (PHB)
After successfully passing the written examination, the PHB requiring detailed information regarding educational background, employment history, military service, references and arrest record (including traffic violations) must be completed by required deadline. Original documents such as birth certificates, social security card, high school and college diplomas and transcripts, driver’s license, marriage certificate, divorce decree, and military discharge papers will also be required after you enter the background phase.

Polygraph
Applicants will be required to take a polygraph test examination during the background investigation.

Background Investigation
The Police Department will conduct a thorough background investigation to verify information given by the applicant in the Personal History Booklet. After successful completion of the background investigation applicants will be given a Conditional Offer of Employment letter which will be based on passing the psychological and medical evaluations.

Physological Evaluation
Applicants will be administered a battery of psychological tests. A licensed psychologist will evaluate the applicant’s responses to determine suitability for police work. Final appointment will be contingent upon the results of the psychological evaluation.

Medical Examination
http://fortworthtexas.gov/hr/PoliceRecruitment/

Fort Worth PD is currently overstaffed, so it's not like they're desperate to hire just anybody.

The psych eval (the MMPI being the most common one used), if conducted with care, should weed out 'hot-heads'.

The written exam should weed out stupid applicants. However, to pass, one only needs to achieve a score of 61 out of 100 (also known as a 'D' in US schools). One may also add up to five points for things like serving in the military or living within the county.
http://fortworthtexas.gov/hr/policerecr ... igibility/

Why so low? Because it's an aptitude test. And aptitude tests are essentially veiled Intelligence tests. And intelligence tests yield widely disparate results by race. And any employment test that yields disparate results by race is illegal (cf. Griggs v. Duke Power, 1971) To avoid running afoul of Griggs, employers just lower the bar.

I think increased training for LEO would be grand. But it won't do a thing if acceptance standards are the equivalent of a 'D' grade.

The cops both seemed nervous, and the two guys were obviously acting aggressively.
Also to disprove the notion that this only happens to members of the black community, police incompetence affects everyone from all walks of life.

The two men were drunk and one of the officers got shoved. Was there really a need to pull a gun?

It's polarising because it is very inconvenient for a lot of people if true. The two poles are equally idiotic. It's just as illogical to draw conclusions about a scientific issue from the behaviour of degenerate moralising scolds as it is to think that being a moralising scold is constructive. For every woke hysteric I can show you a crank mumbling about Agenda 21, the Jewish conspiracy and climate fraud.

Lots of communities in the US have really bad cops. I know of one small city in the Detroit area that has a training program for one cop per year. The entire city has about 10 officers. Every year they find some kid and send him to 40 weeks of training. Last year the kid was one of the city councilmen's children. After their brief training (that I understand is super easy to pass) the kid gets a gun and gets to be a cop. The pay is $15 an hour. So, yeah, there are lots of under trained poorly paid cops.

The low pay also means that they may be on the take and setup drug and prostitution protection rackets. Not good.

We should do what we can in improve habitats, flood control etc. Why????.... because the Chinese and Indians will NEVER slow their own economies to reduce CO2. If the US, Germany, etc., reduce CO2 through taxes and higher cost energy solutions we will just export industrial production to low cost countries.... countries that make more CO2.

There is no solution. only mitigation.
Why do you think that "reducing CO2" will slow their economies? Decoupling CO2-e intensity from economic development requires technological advancement. Last time I looked, this was good for an economy, although it can be painful for those tied to the previous technologies (rent seekers etc).

Maintaining the status quo will help GDP growth, what with all of the climate change amplified disasters requiring cleanups and rebuilding. Not so good for societies and local economies though.
1) What the hell.... when did people destroy the meaning of "mitigation". Haha. Flood mitigation used to mean things like dikes, and open marshes, and stuff that would mitigate the effects of flooding. Now, is this called adaptation? If we open up marshes to absorb flood waters are we "adapting"?

2) People and businesses will naturally improve their efficiency... simply as a way to save some money. This happens naturally and the fact is that energy use per capita is down in places like the US. Technology allows us to do things better over time.

3) If we penalize certain countries for using energy (through taxes, cap and trade, regulations) this will drive up the cost of living and the cost of manufacturing/farming.etc. So, if we force modern western countries to all reduce C02 through government intervention we will push more production to countries that have no government regulations and mandates. Thus... manufacturing will move to these unregulated countries. This will create more CO2 in the long run as more and more work go to places like China (who burn coal for almost all their power). Hell.... part of the reason China is pushing toward making electric vehicles is so they can burn their coal for electric power and not have to buy petrol for cars. This shit increases CO2 emissions.... it doesn't reduce them.

4) Treaties like the Paris agreement do not put any restrictions on developing economies. This will simply mean more high energy manufacturing will move to these countries and they will make stuff for the rest of the world using coal fired electric power. and.... no one on the left thinks this is a problem. Somehow, since the west has made tons of pollution in the past, we should punish ourselves and let others pollute freely. Well.... I guess this is fine if we want to appease our guilt and let others take our industry and pollute as much as they want.

so... yeah.... all we have is "adaptation" as a solution (previously known as mitigation).
