    Calling Family ‘Family’ Sparks Meltdown For Google Workers

    Calling family “family” has sparked a meltdown among workers at Google, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation, including one who lashed out at company officials for their “disrespectful way to speak.”

    The Daily Caller cited insider documents provided by a source who insisted on remaining anonymous.

    The revolt began when a company official was talking to employees about features of Google’s Unicorn product that continually use the word “family” as a synonym for “household with children.” READ MORE...

    Rocket Failure Dooms Iran Satellite Launch

    (AP) — TEHRAN, Iran — Iran on Tuesday conducted one of at least two satellite launches it plans despite criticism from the United States, but the satellite failed to reach orbit, an official said.

    The rocket carrying the Payam satellite failed to reach the “necessary speed” in the third stage of its launch, Telecommunications Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi told Iranian state television.

    Jahromi said the rocket had successfully passed its first and second stages before developing problems in the third. He did not elaborate on what caused the rocket failure, but promised that Iranian scientists would continue their work. READ MORE...

    IRS Recalling 46,000 Workers To Handle Tax Returns

    (AP) — WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is recalling about 46,000 of its employees furloughed by the government shutdown — nearly 60 percent of its workforce — to handle tax returns and pay out refunds. The employees won’t be paid during the shutdown.

    With the official start of the tax filing season coming Jan. 28, the Trump administration has promised that taxpayers owed refunds will be paid on time, despite the disruption in government services caused by the partial shutdown now in its fourth week. READ MORE...

    Likely mindful of the optics of President Trump criticizing Democrats for refusing to fund border security, while said Democrats are sitting before him in a staged Stage of the Union event, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Wednesday “took the extraordinary step” of urging him to delay his speech until a later date.

    Or just print up the speech and send it over to Congress.

    It was Fox that noted the demand from Pelosi was “extraordinary,” as Trump already is scheduled to deliver his annual address to a joint session of Congress on Jan. 29. READ MORE...

  • Rabbi Blood Moon Is Sign Telling Jews To 'Come To Israel'

    Rabbi: Blood Moon Is Sign Telling Jews To ‘Come To Israel’

    A popular rabbi in Israel says a coming blood moon eclipse is a message for Jews to come home.

    Blood moons long have been associated with significant events for the nation of Israel, and the coming event is known as a “super blood wolf moon eclipse” because it will be a total lunar eclipse for parts of North America at a time when the full moon is at the closet point of its orbit to the Earth.

    It also is the first such event in January.

    In 2014 and 2015, the world witnessed four consecutive total eclipses of the moon, known as a tetrad. READ MORE...

  • Test Coming For Ginsburg's Promise To Leave If She's Not At 'Full Steam'

    Test Coming For Ginsburg’s Promise To Leave If She’s Not At ‘Full Steam’

    (Washington Examiner) Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has repeatedly said she will retire when she is no longer able to work “full steam” — a promise that could be put to the test this week — or soon after — with the 85-year-old justice sitting out oral arguments while recovering from cancer surgery.

    Ginsburg’s absence for the past three days and recent health issues have fueled speculation about her future on the high court. If Ginsburg steps down as one of the four liberal justices currently serving, President Trump will almost certainly appoint a conservative replacement, tilting the court further to the Right.

  • Unveiled: One Deception Of The Elites

    Unveiled: One Deception Of The Elites

    By Brett Van Voast

    When I watch network news, I often argue with the television. It never does any good, or course, as the reporters continue unthinkingly to say the most idiotic things and totally ignore everything I yell at them. They really should pay attention!

    I understand why they don’t. Most of them don’t know any better. Most politicians are in the same boat, and I actually think many of them are elected specifically because their IQ really isn’t far above room temperature.

    However, there is a part of the political and economic classes who do know better, and they fervently hope to keep the majority of Americans as confused as possible about how things really work. They’re very smart, very motivated people with lots of money and power. If you don’t know the basics of political thought, stripped of all the jargon, it’s difficult to pierce the veil of lies, half-truths and illusion erected to mislead the public. To back up this seemingly rash statement, I’ll explain one portion of the illusion. READ MORE...

    Study: Men More Disadvantaged in 91 Countries

    A new academic study finds men, on average, are more disadvantaged than women in 91 countries compared with a relative disadvantage for women in 43 countries.

    Researchers from the University of Missouri and University of Essex in the United Kingdom say their Basic Index of Gender Inequality “presents a simplified but more accurate picture of peoples’ well-being than previous calculations.”

    The metric focuses on three factors: educational opportunities, healthy life expectancy and overall life satisfaction. READ MORE...
