Debunking The The New York Times Claim That Donald Trump Hates Your Dog: This Nothing More Then Street Talk:

It is patently obvious just how little President Donald Trump likes dogs. For starters, he often calls people dogs as an insult — he’s used it against everyone from former White House adviser Omarosa Manigault Newman to Kristen Stewart to Mitt Romney, regardless of the facts that (1) dogs are very good boys and girls, and (2) it’s just not a very imaginative thing to say about someone. There is also no record of the Trumps owning dogs in New York City, though there are a lot of photos of the now-president awkwardly holding the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show winners. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/05/opinion/trump-military-dog.html

Here the Proof:

What are the dog day of summer:

1. The dog days or dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer. They were historically the period following the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius, which Greek and Roman astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck.

3. What does mad dog mean?

Mad dog is slang term used to describe someone as “wild and crazy.” It is often used as a nickname or to describe a kind of mean stare.

It’s also slang for “cheap, high-alcohol wine,” referring to the brand MD 20/20 in particular.

4. what does mad hatter mean: Mad as a hatter” is a colloquial English phrase used in conversation to suggest (lightheartedly) that a person is suffering from insanity. … Dementia causes symptoms similar to madness and death often occurred with the accumulation of mercury in the body.

Mad Hatter The Character

The Mad Hatter is one of the most famous Disney characters ever to be imagined and portrayed on the big screen. He is not your typical character as his name suggests but over the years, he has become one of the most well-loved Disney personalities because of his quirkiness and peculiarity in nature.

Mad Hatter

The phrase mad as a hatter dates back to the early 19th century when fine hats were the talk of the town. As it symbolizes social status, the hat makers were taking a big health risk in producing such wonderful head pieces. In an effort to create fine felt hats, they would use a mercury-based compound in creating the hats.

The problem with this was that long-term exposure meant serious physical side effects. This would develop over time and come out in different forms. It can manifest in terrible mood swings, slurred speech, tremors, memory loss, and other neurological problems. This was where the term “mad as a hatter” originate from.

Appearance

Hatter is quite fashionable and impossible to miss in the movie. He is a wild-eyed character with a bow tie on top of a strange suit. Of course, he wears a nice large hat with a card bearing the text “In this style 10/6.” It is the price tag of the hat which is indicative of his trade. This amounts to ten shillings and six pence.

In Hatter that seems to constantly annoy the young Alice was very much different from the more recent character. He took on the role of a guide and at times, a protector to the older Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole again. Together with the March Hare, they are in a never-ending tea party as punishment by Time when the Queen of Hearts found them guilty of trying to murder time.

In the latest installment Alice Through The Looking Glass, “Hatta” is again on the wrong side of the law for something he has yet to commit. What is surprising in this movie is that Alice does not seem to recognize him despite looking exactly the same.

Personality

As the name suggests, the mad hatter is a seemingly insane character that gives out riddles and dresses fashionably. His obsession with tea time as well as tea parties is a result of trying to sing for the Queen of Hearts where he was found guilty of murdering time. That and his endless conflicts with the Wonderland’s Queen has left him wondering about the passage of time.http://www.the-madhatters.co.uk/mad-hatter-character/

It is interesting to note that the character was never directly referenced as the Mad Hatter in the book. This was just a description by Cheshire the Cat when he tries to warn Alice in the forest. He mentioned that the hatter had a somewhat unstable frame of mind, thus, making him mad.

How Big-Government Regulation Contributed to California’s Wildfires! , But Wait Minute, We Been Told It Was Global Warming, Contributed to California’s Wildfires!

In 2013, cartoonist Jack Ohman made a macabre attempt at humor that was published by the Sacramento Bee in a political cartoon referencing an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, at which fifteen people were killed and more than 200 were injured.  In the left panel of that cartoon, Ohman portrayed then-governor Rick Perry saying, “Business is BOOMING in Texas!” while standing in front of a sign that says “Low Taxes!” and “Low Regs!”  In the payoff panel to its right, we see a massive explosion representing the tragedy in West: “BOOM!”  The image comes complete with a mushroom cloud. 

I have no doubt that Ohman believed he was making some high-minded political comment with this cartoon, and his message is clear.  The explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas was somehow the failure of the relatively small-government, low-regulation policies for which Texas is well known, meant to be juxtaposed with the comparatively high-tax, highly regulatory government policies for which California is equally well known, and where one might not expect such disasters to happen.

This leads to an obvious question.  If, according to the proponents of big government at the Sacramento Bee, a random explosion at a fertilizer plant in West must signify the failures of small-government policies and low regulation, why do the persistent catastrophic wildfires in California’s forests not represent the failures of comparably big-government regulation?

In truth, there was nothing, then or now, to suggest that more regulations upon industry at the federal or state level might have prevented the calamity in West.  It was, in fact, later determined to have been caused by a criminal act, therefore it was a horrifying anomaly.  There is, however, plenty to suggest that the irresponsibility of bloated federal and state government bureaucracies’ impositions of regulations has led to the destructive extent of the wildfires in California.

Fires are nothing new in California, and there’s something of an interesting history to them that used to not be nearly as tragic as we see today.  Chuck DeVore, vice president of national initiatives at the Texas Public Policy Foundation, reminds his readers at Forbes that as “a citizen soldier in the California National Guard for two decades, I often heard the gallows humor that California’s four seasons were: flood, fire, earthquake, and riot.”

DeVore takes to task the editorial board at the Sacramento Bee for their commentary around the Carr Fire of 2018, in which they suggested that the recent fires are the result of “climate change, for real and in real time.  We were warned that the atmospheric buildup of man-made greenhouse gas would eventually be an existential threat.”

“The problem with the Bee’s editorial is that making a passionate argument is no substitute for the truth,” DeVore writes.

He recalls that as a freshman California assemblyman in 2005, he visited forest product industry professionals in Northern California.  They told him of a “worrisome trend” that had begun many years before, where “both federal and state regulators were making it more and more difficult for them to do their jobs.”  Mainly, the problem was that “[a]s timber harvesting permit fees went up and environmental challenges multiplied, the people who earned a living felling and planting trees looked for other lines of work.”  As the “timber industry gradually collapsed,” the “combustible fuel load in the forest predictably soared,” because forest management professionals stopped “clearing brush and thinning trees.”

The process of clearing forests in California had begun long before industrialization, with the native populations in California prior to the Gold Rush — but for different reasons then.  Photographic evidence of the Sierra landscape in the 1850s and 1860s presents “open fields of grass punctuated by isolated pine stands and scattered oak trees,” largely because the natives “shaped this landscape with fire to encourage the grasslands and boost the game animal population.”

When the Gold Rush took hold and California grew, forests were a vital resource for both construction and fuel.  “The landscape filled with trees,” DeVore writes, “but the trees were harvested every 30 to 50 years.”  Increasing federal and state regulation “disrupted” that cycle in the 1990s, however, “especially on the almost 60% of California forest land owned by the federal government.” 

It is ironic, I suppose, that proponents of big-government regulation are quick to blame a lack of regulation for such singular tragedies as the explosion in West but fail to see how an abundance of expansive and oppressive regulations have led to the extent of tragedies like the modern California wildfires.  But even that observation is overshadowed by an even larger irony, in an environmental sense.

[O]ver time the fire-prone forests that were not thinned, burn in uncharacteristically destructive wildfires, and the resulting loss of forest carbon is much greater than would occur if the forests had been thinned before the fire moved through. … [F]ailing to thin leads to a greater greenhouse gas burden than the thinning created in the first place, and that doesn’t even account for the avoided fossil fuel greenhouse gas emissions due to the production of energy from the forest thinning.  In the long term, leaving forests overgrown and prone to unnaturally destructive wildfires means there will be significantly less biomass on the ground, and more greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

The reason for the regulations curtailing logging and the use of biofuels as an energy source is predicated upon environmental concerns.  Specifically, “wood doesn’t burn as cleanly as natural gas,” and the “wood waste from timber operations” that used to be burned in biomass generators became scarcer.  As such, there have been mass closures in recent decades of the biomass generators that once provided readily available and affordable energy.  “What used to be burned safely in power generators is now burned in catastrophic fires,” DeVore writes.

Today, there are many who would defend the regulatory endeavors that have made logging less profitable and thereby less prevalent, and particularly might celebrate that such regulations have led to the closure of biomass fuel generators, in favor of massively subsidized wind and solar energy.  But as early as 2006, it was observed by the Western Governors’ Association, in their Biomass Task Force Report, that:

It would be difficult to argue that federal and state regulations that curtailed the incentive for private companies to engage in forestry work have led to a better environmental outcome in terms of carbon emissions, and harder still to argue that such regulation has not led to the catastrophic extent of the devastation in California’s persistent wildfires.

And yet, what is the solution, according to California’s Governor Gavin Newsom?  He has found a viable patsy for regulatory overreach by the government in the corporate entity known as Pacific Gas and Electric. 

Count me among those critical of PG&E, as the arguably overbroad rolling blackouts in California have caused some days without power when the “high winds” (ostensibly the reason for the power outage) may not have blown a napkin off my patio table.  But somehow, Newsom and his big-government cohorts, anxious to compel public sentiment toward more government regulation, feel that the best way to capitalize on consumer anger and correct the struggling company’s business practices is to allow state control in reshaping and regulating its practices — “even if it mean[s] a public takeover,” according to the New York Times.

Imagine the insanity in what is being offered to solve this crisis.  For the crime of having equipment malfunctions which created the sparks that allegedly ignited some of California’s wildfires, the “solution” is to allow more expansive regulation to be crafted by the same regulatory bodies that allowed for the copious kindling and fuel which allowed those fires to burn at such levels as to consume so much of California’s forests and inhabited land, claiming the businesses, homes, and lives of so many of California’s citizens?

That is definitely misguided, and there’s an undeniable irony in Newsom suggesting that more government and environmental regulation will fix California’s problems with wildfires, when it seems obvious that expansive government and environmental regulation has greatly contributed to the destructive extent of the wildfires it is experiencing.  

But, unlike cartoonist Jack Ohman and the Sacramento Bee’s editorial board, I don’t find anything funny at all in my making this well evidenced contention today. https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/11/how_biggovernment_regulation_contributed_to_californias_wildfires.html

Another scientist challenges Darwin’s theory!

Foresight: How the Chemistry of Life Reveals Planning and Purpose, by Marcos Eberlin 170 pp; softcover, $11.96; ISBN 13-978-1-936599-65-3 (Discovery Institute Press: Seattle); 2019

Dr. Marcos Eberlin, a physical chemist who specializes in spectrometry and supervises a large lab in Brazil that has produced hundreds of doctoral-level scientists, is former president of the International Mass Spectrometry Foundation and author of more than 1,000 research papers.  He has written a book that makes a strong case for another nail in the coffin of Darwin’s theory of evolution of species. 

In the late 1960s, when I went to medical school, the histologists (cellular-level anatomists) had received a great new instrument, the electron microscope, that provided an order of magnitude’s improvement on studying and recording the microanatomy of living cells.  I still have on my shelf my electron microscopy book, published in 1966, a big picture and text book, Ultrastructural Aspects of Disease: The First Atlas of Fine Structure on Pathology, edited by King (1966) — 22 authors, 100 contributors, an amazing exposition on the ultrastructure of normal and pathological specialized cells of the human body, bone, liver, kidney, brain, muscle, heart, lung.  You get the picture.  The detail showed that cells of the body are not only diverse, but internally exceptionally complex — much more complex than anything man-made.  It’s complex anatomy supporting complex functionality.

Dr. Eberlin is involved in spectrometry.  He studies the molecules that make up those really small things — one more level down into the make-up of cells, to the biochemical level of anatomy and the level at which atoms and molecules combine to make more complex molecules that have biochemical roles in the physiology of the cell.  Is that a mouthful?

Eberlin studies complex chemical chain reactions facilitated by enzymes of amazing size and complexity, and the whole thing managed by the nucleus of the cell that has genetic material essential to manage all the cell’s anatomy and physiological/chemical functionality to keep the cell alive and reproducing.  Of course, if that cell were a part of a multicellular organism, the genetic material also determined the role of that cell in the larger organism.

As an example, membranes keep the cell intact but also allow nutrients and waste to go in and out, while protecting against toxins.  Think of manufacturing and retail “just in time” inventory — a living cell is a “just in time” complex functional unit of life, directed by genetic material, DNA, that Bill Gates said “is like a computer program but far, far more advanced than any software ever created.”

Darwin knew little about cellular anatomical and physiological complexity.  Certainly, he knew less about the multicelled and the higher forms of living things that display not only complex cellular functionality, but also incredible cellular diversity.

Dr. Eberlin writes in 172 pages of energetic prose about the artful solutions to major engineering, chemistry, and biology in living cells of living things that are evidence of a factor of foresight and intelligence.

Dr. Eberlin runs through a wonderful series of discussions that make his case for design and not chance (Darwin’s theory is built on chance and random events):

  1.  The complex functionality of membranes.
  2. The ideal components and proportions of the atmosphere.
  3. The genius make-up of genetic material, DNA and RNA.
  4. Gene controls — operons.
  5. The magic of enzymes — they are made to work.
  6. Chaparones and chaparonins that modify and maximize protein synthesis and benefits.
  7. The special activities and makeup of bugs, bacteria, and carnivorous plants.
  8. Birds and their sense of direction.
  9. The extraordinary nature of bird eggs and bird gestation.
  10. The special provisions that are essential for human reproduction.
  11. Special provision for sight.

Chemicals don’t have a brain, can’t organize complex functionality; they just get pushed around by electric magnetic physical forces.  It is silly to propose that random chemical changes that occasionally find a survival benefit can create complex functionality of the magnitude described in any cell, much less the many living single to multi-celled and of course the higher forms of life.   

The evolutionary theory of incrementalism that results in changes that are advantageous assumes too much.  The chicken-egg question is an example of the circular causality question: if an advanced function is required, how does the organism get there?  Do molecules know what they’re doing?  Do they know how to improve themselves?

It is magical thinking to propose that random genetic mutations or changes (Darwin knew nothing of genetics) occurring over eons are going to produce essential large complex molecules (Darwin knew nothing of molecules) that arrive at the right place and right time to interact with other large, complex just-right functional molecules when all the molecules have to have all their hundreds of amino acids in the right order and the proper right-left orientation (all amino acids are right or left) to produce functional advantages to survival for the organism. 

There is no excuse for ignoring what is apparent, as the author points out: “This book has pointed out many clever mechanisms of life. But they are not merely clever.  They are not just advantages. . . they are ‘primordial musts,’ features needed from the start for the organisms possessing them to survive and thrive. Think about it next time you hear some Darwinist waxing eloquent on how random variations can produce a complex functionality that cannot be duplicated by men.” 

My horses and dogs prove Darwin’s theory a real stab in the dark—we are all, no doubt composed of mostly carbon compounds and water, but we are incredibly complex and yet functional, so it sure isn’t something that happens by random chance and luck.  No, tornadoes in a junk yard are not going to make a living thing.  Such creations must have a really detailed, perfect plan, and then execute it.  Even our smartest humans can’t even know where to start.   My dogs are perfect, so are my horses and also the deer in my pasture, the hummingbirds, the painted buntings — the evidence of some really remarkable planning is everywhere.  Who and how — don’t ask me — I just know a well planned and executed project when it see it.

Why A Man Can,t Be A Women, Top 4 Reasons Women Ride The “Emotional Roller-Coaster”

young woman holding her head in pain and stress Stock Photo - 13940080

Visual Search

1. Women have learned and are in the habit of being driven by the approval of others. Most women allow the expectations of others to define them and therefore making the approval of others is responsible for their happiness. This pattern gives others’ the power to make and take your happiness at any time. Approval seeking steals your happiness and doesn’t allow you to ever get to know yourself, your wants, your desires, or your needs. A total disconnect. Thus an up and down roller-coaster of emotions. Not a pleasant way to live.

2. Women their achievements define their value. This belief causes several problems. When you believe that you are defined by your achievements, you are unable to feel good about yourself or have strong self-esteem unless you are accomplishing or producing which does not allow for down time, relaxation or free creativity. There is no room for you to just be? you. You identify yourself as results. This way of living allows for little or no joy, peace, or contentment because you are always looking for the next way to achieve. This is very different from healthy goal setting. Attaching your value to your achievements will ensure that you will not exit your emotional roller-coaster.

3. Women believe their children define them. Holding this belief can be very damaging for the parent and the child. When parents (unconsciously) hold the belief that their children define them or give them value, they will act in a way that pressures kids to perform at a standard they cannot match up to. Or parents try to force kids to have goals that the parent thinks is best and disregard what the kid or teen wants. Parents with this belief tie their sense of purpose to their children’s results or who they become. This will steal your child’s own sense of worth because he/she will only feel good about themselves when they meet your standards and expectations. And quite frankly this is not the unconditional love your child deserves. This is pushing your own agenda on your kids. Children, teens, and young adults need some (increasing as they age) space to figure out what they want and what is important to them! Discover your own identity and allow your children to do the same. Anything else will push your children away emotionally as they grow up. If you depend on your children’s results (or your perception of what these results “should” be) you will stay on the emotional roller-coaster!

4. Women believe that their husbands are supposed to make them happy. Who of you thought when you got married (if you are married), or perhaps moved in with a significant other, that, “this person will make me so happy”? Or if you have experienced a divorce or a break-up, you may have thought, “this person makes me so unhappy”. I am simplifying a bit, but the principal is true. The problem with this thinking is that if we allow people to “make” us happy, then at any time that person can “take” our happy. Only you are responsible for your happiness. You must create or develop an inner knowing that you are completely loveable, worthy, and valuable regardless of who is or isn’t a part of our life!

Study: 80 Percent of People Think ‘Political Correctness Is a Problem in Our Country’

The study, “Hidden Tribes: A Study of America’s Polarized Landscape,” was conducted by the international research initiative More in Common. Researchers asked 8,000 respondents questions about topics like sexual harassment, white privilege, and immigration, and divided them into seven different categories: progressive activists, traditional liberals, passive liberals, the politically disengaged, moderates, traditional conservatives, and devoted conservatives.

The two conservative categories combined represented 25 percent of the respondents, and the progressive category represented only 8 percent. The researchers designated the two-thirds of Americans who don’t belong to either extreme as the “exhausted majority,” whose members “share a sense of fatigue with our polarized national conversation, a willingness to be flexible in their political viewpoints, and a lack of voice in the national conversation.”

Most of the “exhausted majority” reported a distaste for political correctness — and they’re not the only ones, either. In fact, despite the reputation that millennials get for being too sensitive, 79 percent of respondents under the age of 24 actually reported the same thing. So did 97 percent of devoted conservatives and a full 61 percent of traditional liberals.

This is certainly surprising — and encouraging — news. During my time covering political correctness at National Review, I’ve written countless stories about extreme examples of sensitivity in our culture. My latest piece covered Colorado State University warning its students to avoid “gendered emojis” in order to be “more inclusive” on social media. I’ve reported on skinny eyebrows being declared cultural appropriation, a lawmaker claiming that a sign named after General Joseph Hooker is offensive to women because his name was “Hooker,” “God bless you” being declared an anti-Islamic microaggression, and a professor declaring that small chairs in preschools are sexist, “problematic,” and “disempowering.” I’ve also written about the size of chairs being deemed a “microaggression” against overweight people, a school district deciding to remove the word “chief” from job titles over concerns that it’s a microaggression against indigenous people, and a councilman who was concerned that hosing down poop-covered sidewalks might be racially insensitive.2

I could go on for pages and pages, but you get the point: Writing about political correctness sometimes makes me feel as if everyone has gone mad, and I’m very glad to see that this doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead, a strong majority of people apparently agrees with me. A strong majority believes that political correctness has gone too far, and probably would agree that we need to be careful to protect our ability to speak freely in this country.

That’s certainly encouraging, but it still doesn’t make me feel entirely better. After all, the small, PC-obsessed mob can sometimes be very powerful. Once it decides that someone or something is racist or sexist, that conclusion can carry a lot of weight. It can ruin careers and lives. It can remove perfectly good, innocuous words from acceptable speech, because even the people who might not see a problem with those words don’t want to risk being accused of racism or sexism for using them. The only answer is to keep fighting, to keep exposing and mocking such overreach when it occurs — and to take solace in the fact that so many people have awoken to its dangers.

California Gun LAWS Again Are Working, So Well Orinda: Four Dead In Halloween Party Shooting,

Image result for recall gavin newsom

ORINDA — Four people were killed and several more injured during a shooting on Halloween night at an Orinda Halloween party, authorities said.

Map of Orinda
Orinda is a city in Contra Costa County, California, United States. The population was 17,643 at the 2010 census, and was estimated in 2012 to have increased to 18,342. In 2012, Orinda was ranked the second most friendly town in America by Forbes

Early Friday morning, officers had blocked off the curving hill of Lucille Way, while at least five police cars lined the road.

Orinda police chief David Cook said officers responded to a call around 10:45 p.m. Thursday for shots fired at a short-term rental.

When officers arrived, they found a party with more than 100 people in attendance, as well as four people who were pronounced dead at the scene and four others who suffered injuries, Cook said. No information was immediately available on victims’ gender or ages.

The home where the party took place is reached via narrow, winding streets, lined with multimillion-dollar homes, on a hill southwest of downtown Orinda. Made up of around 19,000 people, the city is located in central Contra Costa County and known to be a quiet bedroom community.

The streets were in darkness as a group of cars wound their way up and parked on a street as close as possible to the crime scene. People in the cars got out and huddled together, with some crying. They appeared to have been at the party or to know some of the victims. A woman in the group told a reporter they did not want to talk.

According to social-media posts, an “AirBNB mansion party” had been advertised for Thursday night. The flier was adorned with crime-scene tape and told attendees to “DM for location,” “BYOB” and “BYOW.” One post sharing the flier appeared to have a location of “Orinda, California” and said doors would open at 10 p.m.

An Airbnb spokesperson said early Friday that the company was “urgently investigating” the incident.

Halloween parties, often festive affairs, have seen striking upticks of fatal violence last year and this year. In Long Beach this week, three men died and nine others were injured late Wednesday during a joint birthday party and Halloween party. In an off-campus college party last Sunday in Greenville, Texas, two people were fatally shot and 12 others injured. Last year, a private Halloween party in East Palo Alto left two men dead and two others critically injured. https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2019/11/01/orinda-sheriffs-deputies-investigate-multiple-shooting/

Police Respond to Shooting at Long Beach Bar; 2 People Found Dead Inside, Including Suspect And California Gun Laws Are Working So Well

Image result for California Gun Laws

A shooting that left two people dead and another injured at a bar in Long Beach is under investigation Wednesday.

An officer was flagged down about 12:20 a.m. regarding a shooting inside the Bottoms Up sports bar in the 1700 block of East Artesia Boulevard, Long Beach Police Department spokesperson Shaunna Dandoy said.

“He engaged with the suspect who was shooting inside of the business when an officer-involved shooting occurred,” Dandoy said.

The suspect was believed to be dead inside the building, although it was unclear if he was killed by the officer or from a self-inflicted wound.

Inside the bar, investigators found an unidentified deceased victim and an injured man who was transported to a nearby hospital. The injuries were not considered to be life threatening, Dandoy said.

An investigation is underway to determine who shot the victims and when.

The officer was not injured in the incident, Dandoy said.

Investigators are searching for surveillance video.

There was no word on a motive for the initial shooting. https://ktla.com/2019/10/23/police-respond-to-shooting-at-long-beach-bar-2-people-found-dead-inside-including-suspect/

Man Sought After Exchanging Gunfire With Police in Boyle Heights: LAPD

Suspected Shooter Remains at Large After Exchanging Gunfire With Police: LAPD>

A man who exchanged gunfire with officers who tried to make contact with him while he was walking on a street in Boyle Heights remained at large Wednesday, authorities said.

The pedestrian opened fire at police at First and Gless streets around 10 p.m. Tuesday when the officers tried to stop him, said Meghan Aguilar, a detective with Los Angeles police.

Police fired back at the shooter, who then fled, Aguilar added.

None of the officers were shot, but one suffered a minor injury in the incident, according to LAPD. Police said they don’t know whether or not the man was hurt.

Why the officers tried to contact the man in the first place remains under investigation, Aguilar said.

Officers set up a large perimeter overnight in search of the alleged shooter but were unsuccessful. LAPD described him as a Hispanic man with a tattoo under one eye.

The incident happened near a number of churches and the Pecan Recreation Center.

Authorities provided no further information.

El Dorado County Sheriff’s Deputy Fatally Shot, Ride-Along Passenger Injured

A Northern California sheriff’s deputy has been shot to death while responding to a call in the rural Sierra Nevada foothills.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office says Deputy Brian Ishmael was fatally shot early Wednesday in the community of Somerset and that a ride-along passenger with him was injured. The condition of the passenger was unknown.

A statement from the sheriff’s office says two men were detained and that a large contingent of law enforcement officers and a helicopter remained at the scene in about 45 miles (72 kilometers) east of Sacramento.

The statement provided no details about how the events unfolded.

The deputy was a four-year veteran of the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office and previously worked for Placerville Police Department. https://ktla.com/2019/10/23/el-dorado-county-sheriffs-deputy-fatally-shot-ride-along-passenger-injured/

GENDER IDENTITY AGAIN DEBUNKED! Psychological Differences Between Men and Women

Recent researches, psychology and biology have pointed out many differences between men and women that can help us understand them both in a better way.

Sometimes the main reason communication problems happen between men and women is that they don’t quite understand the differences between themselves well.

Had men and women understood their psychological and biological differences they would have understood each other better and less problems would have happened between them.

In this article i will point out some of the major psychological and biological differences between men and women.

Major differences between men and women

  • 1) Communication skills & body language The communication center inside a woman’s brain is much larger than the communication center inside a man’s brain. Women are generally better able to process words and to use language than men provided that all other factors are constant.Women pay special attention to words, read in between lines and can notice the body language of people along with their facial expressions in a much better way than men. (see also Understanding body language better)
  • 2) Sharing vs problem solving: Men in general are more independent than women. They even prefer to solve their problems alone without talking about them. Women on the other hand become distressed if they didn’t share their problems with their friends even if their friends weren’t able to provide solutions. This is a famous point of conflict where a woman tells her man about a problem with the intention of sharing it with him then becomes surprised by the man’s single line answer (which is intended to provide a solution to the problem). This is also the reason why women go to bathroom in groups, they just like to share the experience of the day together in a place where no man can watch them
  • 3) Attraction and sex: The area inside the brain responsible for sexual desire is much bigger inside the man’s brain and as a result: 1) Men think about sex more often than women 2) Men care about looks much more than women care about looks 3) Men can easily get attached to a woman just because she looks hot. In my book How to make someone fall in love with you i said that women do care about looks as well as other important personality traits and resources while men idolize physical looks and can sacrifice many other traits for the sake of getting along with the most attractive woman (see also Do looks really matter to women)
  • 4) Aggression vs diplomacy: Women are biologically wired to avoid conflict unless some other psychological factor comes into play and affects their original nature (such as hating their identity,see Masculine protest). Men on the other hand are much more aggressive in general. Researches have shown that men are better than women in recognizing angry faces and this enables them to quickly notice their opponents. A typical woman would try to avoid conflict and maintain peace while a typical man will hardly back off if someone threatened or challenged him.
  • 5) Logical thinking vs emotional thinking: Men in general can take decisions without being emotionally affected that much while women in general take into consideration other factors that are related to emotions that most men overlook.

Over generalization and psychological differences between men and women

I know that at this point you might want to tell me that you know a woman who is aggressive or a man who takes emotional decisions instead of logical ones.

The differences i discussed above are the factory settings or the initial programming that both men and women are created with. Because of the external influences that latter affect the development of their personalities some men and women override their initial programming and act against their nature.

How life experiences can override the psychological nature of men and women

For example a girl who was raised in a family that didn’t make her feel that she was loved might grow to become an aggressive woman just because she thinks that everyone around her is her enemy. (see how behaviour is learned)

Here is another example, women are biologically wired to seek protection and to become attracted to the most resourceful man who can provide protection. Now if a woman had a severe self image problem then this instruction inside her mind might get overwritten and she might find herself attracted to the most handsome man with disregard to his status.

In such a case winning the heart of the attractive man will prove to her that she is attractive and will help her feel good about her looks.(see also How children develop their personalities)

In summary, the factory default settings of men and women can sometimes be overridden by external influences.

Gender Identity Debunked! 25 Fun Facts About What Makes Men and Women Different!

Men aren’t from Mars. Women aren’t from Venus. They’re the same species from the same planet. But the sexes certainly aren’t the exact same. The differences between men and women are real and important.

They serve biological functions and can even help you better understand your health needs. These differences give each sex unique strengths that help with the most important task—survival.

But let’s talk similarities before jumping into what makes men and women different.

Here’s two you might not know: Genetically, men and women’s DNA is 98.5 percent identical. They even have the same hormones. But the ratios of those hormones explain some of the differences between men and women.

Now it’s time to dive into 25 fun facts. Discover the important physiological, biological, and nutritional differences between men and women.

  1. Men typically have thicker skin—by about 25 percent. They also have higher densities of the protein collagen.
  2. The differences in density goes beyond skin deep. Usually, men also have denser, stronger bones, tendons, and ligaments than women.
  3. From about age 14 to 51, women typically need more iron than men. This is due to their loss of blood during menstruation, which typically happens in a cycle of 28 to 40 days.
  4. On average, men typically have more muscle mass than women. And those skeletal muscles are faster and more powerful. But women’s muscles more readily resist fatigue and are faster to recover.
  5. The second longest finger for most women is next to their thumb—the index finger. But men are the opposite. They usually have ring fingers—those next to their pinkie finger—that are longer than their index fingers.
  6. Folate is an essential vitamin. So, men and women both need it. But it’s especially crucial for women of child-bearing age. If they become pregnant, women need enough folate to support the neural development of their babies.
  7. There are differences in the way male and female brains are structured, how they process information, and interact with chemical signals. Some examples: men have more information-containing gray matter, but women have more white matter, which connects different parts of the brain. Also, women have bigger memory centers than men.
  8. A woman’s circadian rhythm is more likely to be short of a 24-hour period. (They’re often six minutes short of a full day.) Men are more likely to be night owls. But women function better during periods of sleep deprivation.
  9. During exercise, women’s primary fuel is fat. For men, it’s carbohydrates.
  10. An average adult female has about 15–70 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL) of testosterone. An average adult male has about 270–1070 ng/dL. Every year after age 30, men’s testosterone levels drop about one percent. That doesn’t happen for women. But women do see their estrogen levels fall off after menopause.
  11. Men have pronounced Adam’s apples. That’s because they have larger voice boxes that make the surrounding cartilage stick out more.
  12. Both sexes hit peak bone mass around age 30. At 40, men and women start losing bone. Menopause accelerates bone loss in women. So, women 51-70 need 200 milligrams (mg) of calcium more than men the same age. That’s 1200 mg per day for women and 1000 mg per day for men.
  13. The daily calorie requirement for men is higher than women. There are a few reasons for this: higher muscle mass, stature, and basal metabolic rate. Pound for pound, muscles burn more than double the calories fat does.
  14. Men and women carry different amounts of body fat. The higher body fat in women—about 10 percent—mostly supports reproductive physiology. One example is when a woman’s body fat gets too low, she stops menstruating.
  15. Women typically carry their body fat in their hips and thighs. Fat tends to deposit around men’s stomachs.
  16. The difference between men and women’s size, muscle mass, and calorie needs means men typically require diets higher in protein.
  17. One study found that men have lower resting heart rates than women. But women have lower peak heart rates. Men’s heart rates typically rise faster during exercise and slow quicker afterward.
  1. Men normally have more red blood cells (4.7–6.1 million cells per microliter compared to 4.2–5.4 million cells per microliter for women).
  2. Women typically have lower blood pressure than men—regardless of race or ethnicity.
  3. For most of life, men and women have the same vitamin D requirements. But older women need to up their intake of vitamin D. That’s because it promotes better calcium absorption.
  4. Men are less likely to seek regular medical checkups. And when they go to the doctor, they’re more likely to hide or lie about their symptoms.
  5. Zinc needs are generally similar for men and women. But pregnant and post-menopausal women require more zinc. Both sexes store zinc in bones, but men also store the essential mineral in their prostate.
  6. Men are less sensitive to cold temperatures.
  7. Women have better senses of smell and taste. They have 50 more cells (neurons) in their olfactory bulbs—the part of the brain responsible for processing smells. Women also usually have more taste buds than men.
  8. The differences in the way men and women see the world is partly physical. On average, men are more likely to be colorblind, but their eyes also sense movement better. Women are able to distinguish small difference in color better.

That Was Fun, But Now What?

You know some of what makes men and women different. You can drop these fun facts in conversations whenever you want. And now you can also use those differences to personalize your health decisions. If you’re a woman, you know you need more folate and you burn fat during exercise. If you’re a man, you know you need more calories and your fat deposits around your stomach. Those are important considerations when planning your healthy lifestyle.

One thing you shouldn’t do is use the differences between men and women to make a case that one sex is somehow better than the other. All the differences listed above have very good biological or physiological reasons for existing. Through the history of human beings, the differences have helped men and women survive—mostly working together.

And these sex differences shouldn’t be seen as limitations in any way. They are averages and typical conditions. Not all men are more muscular. Not all women have a better sense of taste. Don’t let the differences between men and women get in the way of your health or life goals. https://askthescientists.com/men-women-different/

Gender Identity Debunked!45 Scientific Facts About Differences Between Men and Women!

You’ve got to remember that men are men and women are women. And although a lot of similarities, there are some real differences.” — Helen Fisher

Besides being the fodder for essentially every comedian who’s ever lived, the differences between men and women are, of course, pretty fundamental to the fabric of human life. They’ve been debated for millennia, with varying degrees rational argument used to implement social and legal norms which, in theory, help us to navigate our differences. Obviously, the whole thing is a bit of a quagmire—and people have used all manner of pseudo-scientific nonsense to help further their downright sexist agendas.

But with that being said, there are some genuine differences in the biology, chemistry and mental make-up of men in comparison to women, and vice-versa. Here we list off 45 of them, in the hopes that the next time you’re tempted to make an assumption about the opposite sex, you stop and take some time to consider the facts.

45. Acoustic Size Judgement

A recent study in the Biology Letters suggests that men have an enhanced ability to judge someone’s size by the sound of their voice.

Not that this ability is necessarily exclusive to men. Other studies have shown that all people have a hard-wired talent for guessing a person’s height, weight, and facial features, based on only a sample of their voice. But men do have a particular aptitude for it: they have been shown to correctly guess a person’s general appearance, using their voice, at about 1.5 times the rate that women are able to.

44. Seeing Things Differently

Men and women literally see things in different ways. Men have thicker retinas and larger M cells than women. The M cells are responsible for tracking the movement of objects. Women have more P cells, which are responsible for identifying objects, as well as analyzing textures and colors.

Promise us you won’t use this one the next time you’re in a fight with your significant other. “That’s what you saw, but you’ve got a statistically-dissimilar number of P cells than me,” is not a valid argument when one party has been accused of leaving the seat up.

43. Right Minded

Women and wen process information differently. Men use mostly the left hemisphere of the brain, while women tend to employ both hemispheres.

More specifically, women tend to develop verbal capabilities in both sides of their brain. It’s this “design” which leads to a scientific observation in which girls will commonly use more words than their male counterparts if they are asked to describe a story, person, object, feeling, or place.

Men, meanwhile, tend to have their verbal ability concentrated in only the left hemisphere… as well as fewer “verbal centers” overall. They also have less connectivity between the regions of their brain responsible for memory, and the regions responsible for language and self-expression.

All of which might help to explain a common stereotype: that women are better than men at speaking about their feelings, and are better at it anyway. We’re a long way from fully understanding the difference, but so far it seems to be that women are just built more effectively for emotional communication.

42. Formed Before Birth

Male and female fetuses start showing brain differences as early as 26 weeks. At that stage, female brains start developing a thicker corpus callosum, which is the part of the brain that connects the left and right hemisphere.

41. Cool as a Cucumber

During periods of stress, both men and women release the hormone oxytocin… but female estrogen combines with the oxytocin to create a calming effect, while the relationship of testosterone to oxytocin has a tendency to make men more aggressive.

Once again, it seems that the science of brain chemistry is bearing out a pretty cliché stereotype.

40. 3-Dimensional Thinking

Men are better able to think of objects three dimensionally than women are. This skill may have been developed back in the days when men hunted and regularly participated in competitive battles.

39. Faces & Moving Objects

In a female baby’s first few month of life, their eye contact will increase by over 400%, and a boy’s will show significantly less improvement. In a study done on 100 babies on the day of their birth, girls were found to prefer looking at a young woman’s faces, while boys preferred moving objects.

38. Mathematical Mind

The area of the brain that is thought to influence mathematical ability is larger in men than in women. The brain areas that control math and geometry skills also mature about four years earlier in men.

37. A Spare Chromosome

Most babies that are born with defects and disabilities are male. One major reason for this is that females have a “spare X chromosome.” Essentially, this results in redundancy that protects against certain recessive defects caused by genes on the X chromosome. For example, if a male baby is born with the gene for red–green color blindness on its X chromosome, the boy will have red-green color blindness. However, a female baby needs to have the red-green color blindness gene on both of its X chromosomes, which is much less likely to occur.

36. Popped Up Veins

The more muscle-mass a person has, the more blood is needed to fuel it. As muscle mass builds, so do veins. Since men on average have more muscle-mass than females, they tend to have more prominent veins.

35.Honey, Have You Seen My Keys?

Women are better at remembering where things are than men are. Women are also more likely to navigate using landmarks, while men navigate using direction and distancces. So a woman is more likely to say, “Go straight until you hit the MacDonalds, then turn right and continue until you reach the top of the hill.” A man is more likely to say, “Drive north for three miles, then turn east on Liberty Street. Continue on Liberty for two miles.”

34. Hears Like a Bat

Girls have 11% more neurons than boys in the brain centers that control language and hearing. Not only do women hear better than men, they can also better distinguish between a broader range of emotional tones like crying.

33. Brow Bossing

There are three major differences between a male and female forehead. The most major difference is that men tend to have a ridge of bone running across the forehead at brow level called “brow bossing.” Women’s foreheads are smoother, flatter, and have little or no bossing.

Differences Between Men and Women facts

32. Store Fat Differently

Women tend to store fat in a ring shape around the abdomen, while fat in men is deposited between their organs. Women are genetically engineered to carry more fat than men, and tend to store it in their hips, thighs, buttocks, and lower abdomen. Men tend to store fat in the upper body, and especially the abdomen, thus creating the “beer belly.”

31. Feel More Pain

Women genuinely feel more pain than men. When experiencing pain, a woman’s left amygdala–the part of the brain that is associated with internal functions–is activated. When men experience pain, the right amygdala is activated.

30. Chronic Worrywarts

Women worry more than men. There is no single reason for this, but hormone differences and environmental factors play a part. On the bright side, worrying gives women an advantage when it comes to foreseeing and handling problems.

29. He’s Not Just Ignoring You

During male fetal development, testosterone impacts the formation of the auditory system, and causes the brain to block out unwanted noise and repeated sounds. When a person repeats themselves several times, the male brain registers it as an “unwanted repetitious acoustic stimuli,” and they genuinely don’t hear it. Women on the other hand don’t have that skill.

28. Better Spatial Sense

Men’s parietal regions are thinner than women’s. This makes it easier for them to visualize rotating 3D objects.

27. Finger Length

The hormones testosterone and estrogen control the genes that determine finger length. More testosterone is generally equated with a longer ring finger, while estrogen is associated with a longer index finger.

26. Conflict and Competition

Men get a positive chemical boost from conflict and competition, while conflict elicits negative chemical reactions in women, creating fear, stress, and sadness. This ties back to nature, where the females of certain species rely on social ties for survival.

25. Colour Detection

Women are better able to detect shade variations in colours than men. Some scientists believe that sex hormones are behind the differences, as male sex hormones can change the development of the visual cortex. It’s also possible that the skill was developed in the days when women were gatherers, as it would have aided their search for food.

24. Processing Emotion

In adolescence, the brain activity associated with negative emotion moves from the primitive area of the brain into the cerebral cortex where language and reasoning centers are located, but this only happens in girls. This is why women are better at expressing emotion, while men seldom “want to talk about it.”

23. Neurological Disorders

More men than women suffer from neurological disorders like dyslexia and autism. Studies have found that this is a matter of genetics. Male brains are more prone to genetic flaws, while women require more extreme genetic mutations to develop the same conditions.

22. Consonants and Vowels

As men and women age, men tend to have more difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds (consonants), while women struggle with low-pitch sounds (vowels).

21. 1000 Gene Difference

Women have a harder time metabolizing alcohol because they have less of a liver enzyme that breaks it down. There is a difference of 1000 genes in male and female livers. These extra genes help men process alcohol faster, which means that they are less likely to feel the effects of drinking than women.

20. No Sleep? No Problem.

A study out of Duke University revealed that men tolerate sleep deprivation better than women do. When women don’t get the sleep they need, they suffer mentally and physically. They are at higher risk of developing heart disease, depression, or blood clots, while men suffer fewer consequences.

19. Physical vs Verbal

Men tend to express aggression physically, while women express it verbally. This is because a man’s aggression pathway is more directly linked to the brain areas for physical action, and a woman’s is more closely linked to areas of verbal function.

18. Cold Feet

Blood flow in women is more concentrated around the lower extremities, while in men it’s spread more evenly. This is why women’s hands and feet get colder than men’s.

16.  Not as Sad as You Think

The same hormone that produces breast milk in women also produces tears. Since women naturally have more of that hormone than men, their bodies produce also produce tears more easily than men. Some women have higher levels of the hormone, which makes them cry at the smallest stimulation, and not necessarily because they’re sad.

15. Multitaskers

While some studies have found that men are better at multi-tasking, others have shown the opposite. The accumulated data so far suggests that men and women are equally matched when it comes to their multi-tasking abilities, and as they age, they lose that ability at equal rates.

Differences Between Men and Women facts

14. Linguistically Inclined

Women have larger frontal and temporal areas of the cortex, which are thought to influence language skills. These parts of the brain mature about 6 years earlier in girls than in boys.

If, in elementary school, it ever felt like the girls were running circles around the boys in the “not sounding like little morons” department, this might just explain why. When it comes to expressing oneself, men just drew the short-end of the evolutionary stick.

13. A Neater Hand

Girls develop fine motor skills earlier than boys do, which lends scientific validity to the stereotype that women have neater handwriting than men. Men and women also grip writing implements differently, which also affects motor skills when writing.

12. The Incredible Shrinking Brain

The female brain is more flexible than the male brain, and during pregnancy, women experience a major restructuring of the brain. Stress circuits are suppressed, the cortex increases in size, and the rest of the brain experiences shrinkage. No brain cells are lost in the transition, but new networks form and pathways change until the brain returns to normal around six months after delivery.

11. Both Sides vs One Side

When it comes to responding to emotional experiences, men only use one side of the brain while women use both sides. Women also retain a stronger memory for emotional events than men.

10. Sniffing Out Adultery

A study published in the Journal of Human Nature found that men are better at reading subtle clues about their partner’s infidelity. Studies have also revealed that men are more bothered by sexual infidelity, while women are upset by emotional infidelity.

Men are also more likely than women to falsely suspect cheating… quite possibly because the prospect of such unfaithfulness bothers them much more than their female-counterparts.

9.  The Big Sniffer

If there’s one single fact that we’re a little worried to share here, this is it:

Men have 10% larger noses than women.

There. We said it.

Look, we know that the whole “which gender has the bigger nose” argument has been raging for centuries, if not millennia. We know how sensitive some people are to the issue. But it’s true, and the science backs us up on this.

The masculine predisposition to elephant-style shnozzes, is tied to their larger muscle mass. It simply requires more oxygen for men to maintain muscle tissue growth and maintenance. And a bigger requirement for oxygen intake means a need for bigger nostrils… really! The difference in nose sizes starts to become apparent at age 11 when boys develop lean muscle mass, and girls grow more fat mass.

8. Bigger Hearts

Men literally have bigger hearts than women. A female heart is about 2/3 the size of a man’s, and beats fewer times per minute.

7. Loose Ligaments

Women have looser ligaments than men, which gives them a greater range of movement, and makes it easier to do things like the splits. The downside to this greater flexibility is that women are at greater risk of joint injuries.

6. Thin Skinned

Women have thinner skin than men, and are thus more prone to develop lines and wrinkles as they lose collagen from aging. Men also have a higher collagen density, which makes them look younger longer.

5. Longer Lifespan

Women have an average life expectancy that is 5.3 years longer than men, largely due to better immunity, reduced risk for blood disease, and lower risk taking.

4. Tunnel Vision

Men use 7x more gray matter for activity than women. The gray matter areas of the brain are the information and action-processing areas, which can create a kind of tunnel vision in men when they are doing something.

3. Unfriendly Faces

During Puberty, the hormone vasopressin works with testosterone in males to influence a boy’s perception of faces. In one study, girls who were given a dose of vasopressin were more likely to rate a neutral face as friendly, while boys rated neutral faces as unfriendly or hostile.

2. Goodnight, baby

Many people have heard the stereotype that after sex “men want to sleep and women want to talk,” but most people don’t realize that it’s actually much more complicated than this. Both sexes release oxytocin during orgasm, which is the “cuddle  chemical” that makes people want to bond.

However, men have higher testosterone levels which not only can dull the effects of oxtocin but also can encourage seeking out the next high. Researchers have pointed out that men don’t always want to sleep: they often want to eat, drink, or smoke, seeking out the next reward. But they also experience higher levels of sexual exhaustion, which is actually more mental than physical, which can soomtimes make them want to sleep.

Women, on the other hand, often experience something else after orgasm: the desire for another one. Female physiology allows them to be multi-orgasmic, with much shorter recovery time than men.

So there really are some phsiological factors that may make it hard for men and women to be on the same wavelength after doing the dirty.

1. Equal Intelligence

While Men have physically larger brains than women, size does not directly correlate with intelligence. What’s learned by experience or study helps forge neuronal connections,  which in turn determines intelligence.
