>>18335 >there is no evidence that that warming trend has slowed, paused, or hiatused at any point in the last few decades I thought we just had 15-20 years of no warming, and then some science nerds said the sun was set to enter a dormant period by 2030 leading to a mini ice age.
Most of us know, at least in the abstract, that Google and Facebook are tracking our every move online. Even Netflix collects detailed information on our binge-viewing habits, the better to make decisions about which films to drop from its catalog or what new TV series to invest in.
But what if I told you there are companies that can go much deeper than firms like Google and Facebook in their data-gathering prowess? Companies that not only know that you watch Netflix for two hours a day but also how long you spent reading this article before going back to Twitter and,... Comment too long.

>Local police chief Nausher Ahmed described how an imam told a gathering at a village mosque that those who love the Prophet Mohammad always say their prayers, then asked who among the crowd had stopped praying.
>Mohammad Anwar, 15, raised his hand by mistake after apparently mishearing the question.
>The crowd swiftly accused him of blasphemy so he went to his house and cut off the hand he had raised, put it on a plate, and presented it to the cleric, the police chief said.

>>18143 My family are muslims (Im ateist). I think this shit is sick. And don't even personally know anyone that would do this. As even though I don't proclaim for everyone I'm not an atheist I haven't been seen praying for over a decade. But obviously there are sick people in this world. Like serial killers, pedophiles, rapists, etc
And the more backwards and chaotic the country is the more likely it harbours this kind of sick people. (Why bombing these countries backwards has resulted in more terrorists... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>18151 >Instead of pushing everyone who call themselves Muslim to the side of extremists by showing hatred and ignorance This is what the extremists want and I'm afraid to say in a lot of places, it's working. Fortunately it doesn't seem to be working any where near as well as around the time of the Iraq invasion but certainly Daesh are really pushing people to hate all Muslims so that some are driven to react. I think part of the solution is to show more regular Muslims in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If these petitions approach it from a legitimate safety issue (i.e. "California is prone to earthquakes, which could crack the fission pile and spread radioactive contaminants.") and not a reactionary one (i.e. "Nuclear power = nuclear weapons" or "A meltdown will make the plant explode!"), then I'll agree with what they propose.

>>18108 Classified information doesn't have to be labeled as classified to be classified, it either is or it isn't based on the nature of the intelligence, and only the agency that the information in question can declassify said information. Treating it in any other manner would lead to wide scale leaks that completely annihilate our information network in every way.
