Strapped for cash and failing in ratings, CNN has discovered an innovative new way to cut costs: simply rerunning articles from a year or two ago and replacing the phrase "Russian collusion" with an updated term, "Ukrainian scandal."
"This is a green, Earth-friendly way to recycle news stories," said a CNN rep. "We have discovered a completely carbon-neutral way to produce indefinitely renewable outrage."

So many liberals and talk show hosts salivated at the entertaining possibility of Trump running for president before the 2016 campaign got under way. They begged Trump to run -- thinking that Hillary would easily crush him. Instead, Trump won! He became the first man in history to become the US president while having exactly zero military and political experience.
In three years, Trump has set the board. He got his tax cuts. He got two judges on the Supreme Court. He's getting troops out of Syria. He's pushing China for better trade terms. He's curt with Europe about its mediocre NATO spending. He's getting Mexico to behave on the border. The economy is booming and the stock market is reaching all-time highs.
All the leftists can do is call him A VERY BAD MAN and complain about BS. Trump will win in 2020 and he's going to win BIG!
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau won a second term in a stronger-than-expected showing in Canada’s national elections, claiming a “clear mandate” Tuesday despite a Parliament and nation increasingly fractured along regional lines. [...]
With results still trickling in, the Liberals had 157 seats — 13 short of the 170 needed for a majority in the 338-seat House of Commons — while the Conservatives had 121.
The following result is quite stunning:
While Trudeau claimed a mandate, his party won fewer raw votes nationally than the Conservatives did, and failed to win a single seat in the western provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, where the Conservatives dominated.
So, Trudeau's Liberals got:
- 13.7% of the vote in Alberta.
- 11.6% of the vote in Saskatchewan.
- fewer national votes than the Conservatives.
Those two provinces must really loath Trudeau. For reference, Conservatives got 69.2% in Alberta and 64.3% in Saskatchewan.

Assuming the polls are accurate, the Liberals will win the most seats. They will likely form an alliance with another party and Trudeau will continue to be the prime minister.
On the most important issue of the day -- immigration -- his conservative opponent is in total agreement. It doesn't matter if Trudeau loses. Canada is still fucked. Millions of more insolent and imbecile migrants, skyrocketing tuition costs, crushing personal and public debt, and exploding real estate prices will be the norm for years to come. It's sad to watch the slow-motion suicide of this country. Those who don't learn from history, learn from pain.

Malaysia's largest Islamic party is pushing for Oktoberfest events across the country to be banned, renewing a familiar culture war in the Muslim-majority country. [...]
"If non-Muslims want to drink alcoholic beverages, they are welcomed to do so in their homes without promoting the activity and organising large-scale events."
That's how it starts. A few years later, they'll be calling for the ban of alcohol in the entire country. Mere possession of a beverage will land one in jail.
A governmental Islamic body ruled in 2016 that products named "hotdog" would be denied halal certification, due to the perception among some Muslims that dogs are forbidden in Islam.
In 2014, Malaysia's High Court ruled non-Muslims could not use the word "Allah" in their publications, despite the fact Malay-speaking Christians had used the term in their holy texts for centuries.
The solution is simple: We need to make the rich people more sick for EQUALITY!
As an American health care reporter traveling through Germany, I wanted to learn not only what works, but also where the system falls short. So when I arrived here — in one of the country's wealthiest cities, with one of its largest concentrations of doctors — economists and researchers directed me to two of the poorest neighborhoods: Veddel and Billstedt, both home to high populations of recent immigrants.
Entering these areas felt like stepping into another city, where even though people have universal insurance, high rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, depression and heart disease persist.
The same people who don't have the self-control to build wealth also don't see how their diet and (lack of) activity impacts their health. They can win a $10 million lottery tomorrow and then, again, be poor a few months or years down the road. Similarly, opening free hospitals and clinics near them won't magically make them healthy.

Faculty workshops designed to persuade teachers not to grade based upon merit are popping up at universities from Washington, D.C. to the potato capital of the world.
One can't help but laugh at this:
This workshop is reminiscent of one held in February at American University, designed to teach faculty “how to assess writing without judging its quality.”
Titled “Grading ain’t just grading” and promising to help teachers rethink “writing assessment ecologies toward antiracist ends,” the workshop warned that “the practices of grading writing” maintained “White language supremacy.”
As one guy in the comments says, we should just let minorities print their own diplomas. Of course, that would stop the gravy train of universities.
The footage, dubbed "Slaughter in Syria," shows the monster, named "Gojira" or "Godzilla" by people screaming in the video, rising from the ocean to attack coastal cities throughout the region. Desperate locals try to fend off the monster with depth charges, a huge electric fence, tanks, and fighter jets. But mostly it doesn't work and they just scream a lot.
Some experts believe we created the monster through too much nuclear testing and some drone strikes and feel we should study the monster. As these experts were opining on the matter in Syria, Godzilla appeared again and destroyed them with his atomic breath.
I blame Trump.
It's not enough to know about things. It's not even enough to know how to maintain them. It is vital to learn how to design, develop, and build things if civilized society is to be preserved.

The Oulu District Court of Finland on Thursday sentenced Sebastian Tynkkynen, a member of the Finnish Parliament, to pay a 50-day fine, about 4,050 euros, for anti-Muslim agitation, Finish media reported.
The verdict applied to the text and images shared by Tynkkynen from the populist Finns Party in his Facebook account in 2016. Tynkkynen, aged 30, posted pictures of alleged perpetrators of terrorist attacks and stated in the title that "they have one thing in common: they all serve Allah."
This was not the first verdict Tynkkynen received. He was convicted of ethnic agitation against Muslims and sentenced a 50-day fine in January 2017 for another posting which claimed "the less Muslims in Finland, the safer."
That's the poisonous atmosphere in Finland: the terrorists aren't the issue; the problem is those people who point out the common factor of these merchants of death.

Before & After— ArchitecturalRevival (@Arch_Revival_) 9 October 2019
Hungarians replace ugly modernist building with a new build in the Classical tradition.
A beautiful city is a better city.
The before portion was inspired by the bottom part of Barad-dur.
Muhammad Haseeb, a university graduate in engineering, has been awarded over $120,000 by the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario in a discrimination in employment application against Imperial Oil.
This is a horrible decision.
The case involved a hiring policy requiring applicants to prove they were eligible to work in Canada on a permanent basis. Haseeb would have been eligible for a work permit for a job at Imperial Oil but he was neither a Canadian citizen nor permanent resident. In his application, he stated — falsely — that he was in fact eligible to work on a permanent basis. This led to a job offer. But when Imperial Oil asked for proof of citizenship or permanent residency, he could not provide it. As a result, Imperial Oil rescinded the offer.
Apparently, that perfectly reasonable discrimination is now illegal.
The employer distinguished between candidates based on whether or not they were Canadian citizens. The tribunal ruled that this distinction was not a bona fide occupational requirement. Though it is legitimate not to hire someone because they lied, if the reason they lied was to avoid discriminatory treatment, the tribunal held, the lie is justified and the question illegal.
This means that anyone, anywhere in the world, can apply to a Canadian company for a job and LIE ON THEIR APPLICATION, get a job offer, reveal the lie, get rejected, and then sue the company for a human rights "violation".
This is big FUCK YOU to Generation Z in Canada. Their wages are stagnant and they're drowning in debt from universities and colleges. Yet, the government is punishing companies for discriminating against non-Canadians and non-citizens. All this will do is put more downward pressure on wages and salaries for young Canadians.
According to Elforkani, the louder call to prayer is partly a response to the social debate about the visibility of Islam in the streets, which flared up again this summer after the introduction of the burka ban. By making Islam that bit more visible in the public space, Amsterdam residents will get more used to the religion as something normal and unrest will disappear, he believes.
Islamic logic: Blaring a cacophony of demonic noise five times a day will lead to less unrest!
Imam Elforkani of the Blauwe Moskee on Henri Dunanstraat expects that the mosque's intention to use loudspeakers will cause a discussion, but not much problems. "Amsterdam is a tolerant city, right?" he said to Parool.
What a snake. Saudi Arabia bans non-Islamic places of worship. Zero churches, synagogues, and temples. Where's the "tolerance" in Islam?

Think about how many Muslims are working in police forces across Europe and North America. The cops could be investigating terrorist plots or child rapists and these Muslims could tip off their "brothers" or destroy evidence. How would the police even know? This should be obvious: Muslims have no allegiance to the infidels. They only care about their tribe and coreligionists.
Mickaël Harpon, who stabbed three police officers and a woman civil servant to death before he was killed at Paris police headquarters on October 3rd, was a radical Islamist with a top secret security clearance and access to all computers in the police prefecture’s directorate of intelligence, known as the DRPP.
The DRPP is responsible for the surveillance of suspected radical Islamists. Yet Harpon continued to work there, even as he showed signs of radicalisation. This mind-boggling fact has shaken President Emmanuel Macron’s administration. Interior minister Christophe Castaner admitted the state “dysfunctioned” but denied there was a “state scandal”.

As minimum wage goes up, employers have the following options to stay in business:
- Fire a few workers.
- Reduce employee hours.
- Increase the prices of products.
- Some combinations of the above.
Sometimes, that's not enough.
Just as predicted, the $15 minimum wage is killing vulnerable city small businesses, with the low-margin restaurant industry one of the hardest-hit as it also faces a separate mandatory wage hike for tipped staffers.
In Sunday’s Post, Jennifer Gould Keil reported on the death of Gabriela’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar — closing after 25 years.
What's insidious about all this is that the poor workers who were paying the bills making $12 an hour are now getting the true minimum: $0. Also, it'll be very difficult for them to find a similar job as other restaurants are also firing workers!
Other eateries share the pain. In an August survey of its members, the NYC Hospitality Alliance found more than three-quarters have had to cut employee hours, more than a third eliminated jobs last year and half plan to cut staff this year.
“It’s death by a thousand cuts,” the Hospitality Alliance’s Andrew Rigie told The Post, since “there’s only so many times you can increase the price of a burger and a bowl of pasta.”

Ignoring strong opposition from New South Wales citizens, lawmakers in the upper and lower house quickly passed the bill with very few amendments. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, MP Alex Greenwich, the lead sponsor of the bill, and other pro-abortion politicians cheered and hugged each other in celebration Thursday after they voted to strip away basically all protections for babies in the womb.
“Abortion has been decriminalised in NSW. I am sorry this has taken so long,” Greenwich said after the vote.
Margaret Tighe, president of Right to Life Australia, says:
[...] the law does not even give babies who are born alive after botched abortions full protections. She expressed concerns about inadequate conscience rights protections for pro-life medical professionals as well.
A woman in NSW can murder her baby for any reason. Well, almost any reason:
Pro-abortion lawmakers rejected a long list of amendments, including measures to ban the sales of aborted baby body parts and to require pain medication for unborn babies capable of feeling pain, ABC News reports. They did pass amendments to protect unborn babies from sex-selection abortions and to add at least some conscience protections for pro-life medical workers.
Murdering your unborn child because she's a girl: THAT'S NOT OKAY! Because that choice would be going too far!
Saudi Arabia is allowing foreign men and women to rent hotel rooms together without proving they are related, after the conservative Muslim kingdom launched a new tourist visa regime to attract holidaymakers.
Who the hell would want to vacation in a country where the mere possession of an alcoholic beverage earns one a beheading!?
Saudi Arabia has been relatively closed off for decades and until recently unrelated men and women, including foreigners, could be severely punished for mixing in public. Strict social codes have been relaxed in recent years and previously banned entertainment has flourished.
But an influx of tourists -- the authorities are aiming for 100 million annual visits by 2030 -- could push boundaries further and risks conservative backlash.

First order thinking: rent control keeps rents low.— Nassim Nicholas Taleb (@nntaleb) 4 October 2019
Real world (higher order empirical) reasoning: rent controls keep people out of the rental market by constraining supply, and letting rent-seekers (literally) to keep cheaper than market appartments.
Always failed. Alwaysl. https://t.co/e22IYpQ7sb
Also, the quality of the real estate deteriorates. Apartments could have thin drafty windows, chipped paint, inefficient appliances, a leaky roof, and scores of vermin but people will still line up to sign the lease.
Why should the landlords sink money into fixing anything when they can't increase the rent and there's a ridiculous waiting list?
The city’s queue for rent-controlled housing is so long that it’s being considered by the Guinness Book of World Records. On average, it takes nine years to be granted a rent-controlled property – and that jumps to two decades in some of the most popular neighbourhoods.
Rent control (maximum price) is the opposite of minimum wage. They both sound good and quite a few people even benefit from them but overall they severely distort the market and cause a lot of problems. Unfortunately, such policies appeal to ignorant voters who don't, or can't, see the second order effects.

Women applying to study engineering and information technology at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) next year will receive 10 more entry points than their male counterparts, in what the university believes is a first of its kind bid to remedy the under-enrollment of women in these fields.
Totally agree. Women are absolutely dumb, utterly hopeless, and catastrophically mediocre. We need to give them extra points. Otherwise, they'll just lie down, sob in some corner, and cry about the patriarchy.

- calls for non-Muslims to follow Islamic law ... or else.
