The National Science Foundation is spending roughly $175,000 on an anti-obesity study that involves taking pictures of food before obese people consume it. Purdue University is overseeing the project, which is entitled, “Using Digital Images to Connect Eating Environment with Dietary Quality.” Researchers say the “fundamental question” is “where, how, and when” food is eaten. The premise of the project is to investigate the “link between eating environment and dietary quality.” “The project will use images from the food environment to address the fundamental question of where, how, and when food should be consumed to maximize health and prevent disease,” the grant states. “Monitoring the personal dietary environment and determination of environmental patterns related to dietary intake can empower both health care providers and patients to optimize evidence-based decisions.” “This information can help individuals recognize less healthful behaviors that may be occurring in their lives,” the grant states.
Your hard-earned tax dollars being wasted on nonsense like this.. We’re all for healthy choices. Who isn’t? But, $175K of tax dollars to take pictures of food?!? We all have smart phones with HD cameras now, and can take pics for free. Anyway, to read more, click on the text above. Unreal..
MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s latest anti-Trump conspiracy theory was so outlandish that even the dependably liberal HuffPost criticized it as “so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map.” On Thursday evening, “The Rachel Maddow Show” opened with a somber 25-minute diatribe that attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the nation of Chad. Maddow essentially claimed that the inclusion of Chad, which recently pulled its troops out of Niger, in the revised travel ban resulted in extremist attacks such as the one that left four Americans dead. The HuffPost, which is so anti-Trump that it refused to even cover him in the political section during the early stages of his campaign, published a story headlined, “What the hell was this Rachel Maddow segment?” The MSNBC host proclaimed that Chad’s pullout from Niger “had an immediate effect in emboldening ISIS attacks,” but the HuffPost easily shot down her theory. Colby College Department of Government assistant professor Laura Seay told the HuffPost that “any expert” would have said Maddow’s conspiracy theory was “crazy” and the pullout of Chadian troops isn’t necessarily related to the Trump travel ban. “Everybody that I know is appalled by this. I would like to think that Maddow’s researchers are more responsible,” Seay told the HuffPost. While the MSNBC host called the tragic attack on American troops “absolutely baffling,” Seay said it was actually “almost inevitable,” because it’s such a remote and hostile area. “The attacks that have increased can be traced back to militant group Boko Haram, which is based just across the border in Nigeria,” the HuffPost reported, citing the Council on Foreign Relations and accounts from local residents. “The Rachel Maddow Show” declined to comment to HuffPost but the host addressed the situation on Friday night’s episode. “Over the course of the day today, lots of people have been very upset with me for reporting that last night, which is fine. I didn’t know you cared. But the upset over my reporting doesn’t mean that anything I reported wasn’t true,” Maddow said. “Everything I reported was true.” Maddow continued: “Now, this doesn’t mean that Chad withdrawing their troops was necessarily the cause of what happened to those U.S. troops who were ambushed. That ambush is being described by the Pentagon as a shock.” The HuffPost’s Willa Frej wrote that Maddow built “myths” using unrelated or unreliable information and “reduced the story so thoroughly that it lost any semblance of the larger truth.”
Exactly.. Rachel is a sanctimonious, self-righteous, arrogant, extreme liberal elitist who thinks she’s smarter than everyone else. The irony is, she really is breathtakingly stupid. Unfortunately, far too many brain-washed liberal millennials follow her pathological ‘hate Trump at all costs’ crusade…just because it’s Trump; the source of all evil in the universe…at least according to these brain-dead idiots. Rachel is such a lunatic, that even the uber-liberal HuffPost is calling her out now. That takes some doin’. We’ll, of course, continue to expose Rachel’s idiocy and document her factual shortcomings and ineptitude. Please share this article with all of your friends and family members who watch Rachel, or MSNBC in general. They are the ones that need to see stuff like this.
A Palestinian university welcomed incoming students with a giant banner depicting Palestinian arch-terrorists as “heroes.” The banner was hung at a reception for new students at the Dura branch of Al Quds University and featured photos of the founders of a number of terror groups, including Hamas’s Ahmed Yassin, Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s Fathi Shiqaqi, Abu Ali Mustafa of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Black September’s Salah Khalaf, monitoring group Palestinian Media Watch reported. The banner also featured images of former Palestinian Liberation Organization head Yasser Arafat and his deputy Abu Jihad, who as head of the organization’s military wing orchestrated terror attacks that claimed the life of at least 125 Israelis, the Palestinian Authority daily Al-Ayyam reported. Speakers at the reception included Fatah official Jamal Muhaisen, who has delegitimized Israel’s right to exist and supported the use of terror in order to defend sites that are holy to Islam. The Al Quds banner also featured the logo of the university’s branch of Fatah’s student movement with the slogan: “From the sea of blood of the Martyrs (Shahids) we will create a state,” as well as a PA map presenting all of sovereign Israel as “Palestine.” In 2013, Brandeis University suspended its partnership with Al-Quds University following a Nazi-style demonstration at its main campus, with activists marching in black military gear and trampling Israeli flags, carrying fake automatic weapons and raising the Heil Hitler salute.
Until the Palestinians are willing to stop this crap, the Israelis shouldn’t bother sitting down for “peace talks” or discussing the possibility of a “two state solution;” which all the Dems and establishment Republicans have been advocating for. After all, you cannot make peace when one side doesn’t recognize your right to even exist. Fatah, Hamas, and the Palestinian Authority (PA) are all just different names for Islamo-fascist terrorist wakos; pure evil.
