>More people in Europe are dying than are being born, according to a new report co-authored by a Texas A&M University demographer. In contrast, births exceed deaths, by significant margins, in Texas and elsewhere in the U.S., with few exceptions.
Texas A&M Professor of Sociology Dudley Poston, along with Professor Kenneth Johnson, University of New Hampshire, and Professor Layton Field, Mount St. Mary's University, published their findings in Population and Development Review this month. The researchers find that 17 European... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

if we're being honest, as someone studying cybersecurity and computer forensics in higher education -- the type of people it attracts don't care about ur fetish porn you downloaded last month. many are emotionally devoid savants and many more yet don't shower. obviously the NSA had a kickstart rise to power with the patriot act, and power is a great time, especially when you can get away with secrecy of ethically questionable shit. at this point though? it really sounds like the true focus is counter terrorism. the NSA isn't staffed by enough analysts to...

>>17732 This is just silly. Aside from building materials, the Moon has absolutely nothing in terms of self-sustainability or scientific value. Mars has a small percentage of oxygen content for filtering. Mars has underground pockets of water (which could even contain alien microbial life) Mars has an Ionosphere to protect from harsh radiation.
A moon-base would just be a more expensive version of the ISS. Fuck that.
Federal assistance has been authorized by the President on request by Gov. Snyder, who's finally addressing the fucking issue. What remains to be seen is whether or not actual investigations by the USAG's office will go forward and if prosecution for negligence will follow.

Since the 1990s, there's been allegations of this sort of abuse from peacekeeping troops and staff in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in Cambodia, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, East Timor, Haiti, South Sudan, Central African Republic. And the troops that have been responsible — at least the ones we know of — have been from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Burundi,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Taipei (CNN)Taiwan has elected its first female president in a landmark election that could unsettle relations with Beijing.
Tsai Ing-wen, leader of the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), won the presidency with 56.1% of the vote, the official Central News Agency said, after eight years under the government of the pro-China Kuomintang (KMT) or Nationalist Party.
Eric Chu, the Nationalist Party candidate in Taiwan's presidential election conceded defeat late Saturday and congratulated rival Tsai Ing-wen on her victory, the agency added.
Her supporters filled streets, waving party banners and cheering to victory announcements made from a stage.
The election marked the first time the KMT has lost control of the island's legislature. The DPP took 68 of the 113 seats in Taiwan's parliament compared to the DPP's 35.
At a post-election news conference, Tsai underscored Taiwan's commitment to democracy, calling it a value "deeply engrained in the Taiwanese people."
"Our democratic way of life is forever the resolve of Taiwan's 23 million people," she said.
But later in her speech, she also acknowledged the tenuous relationship with Beijing, saying both sides "have a responsibility to do their utmost to find mutually acceptable ways to interact ... and ensure no provocation and no surprises."
