We may have seen the high-water mark of the EU project

Stephen M. Walt on recent events in the European Union:
Nationalism is still alive and well in Europe, the Cold War is over and there is thus less need for unity against an external threat, Germany is gradually shedding its post-World War II reticence, and the consequences of over-expansion and excessive ambition have been fully exposed. I'm not saying the Union is headed for the dust-heap of history or anything like that (no bureaucracy goes out of business that quickly, especially when there are thousands of pages of laws involved), but a significant consolidation of power in the near future seems most unlikely.

Given that the EU Union has been one of the more interesting political experiments in recent decades, this is going to be fascinating to watch.

Teens strangle friend and nail him to a wall in India

Two teenagers aged 14 and 15 years strangled their 13-year-old friend with a copper wire and then pinned his body to a wall using iron nails. The children were paid by a 35-year-old woman, Sabroon, to commit the murder. She was angry with the victim as she suspected he was stealing from her shop and wanted to get rid of him. The two kids have been arrested by the Vijay Nagar police. The woman is on the run. In another incident, a man killed two brothers at Vijay Nagar after the victims failed to pay the money that they owed him, the police said.

Jew attacked by North Africans in France

A practicing Jew was hospitalized with serious injuries after being attacked with a knife and iron rod in the center of Strasbourg, the capital of the French Alsace region. According to eyewitness reports, the 42-year-old man was wearing a traditional Jewish skullcap when he was attacked by two men wearing djellabas, robes traditionally worn in North Africa.

Jews and Arizona

According to the Jewish Telegraph Agency, virtually all of the major American Jewish groups oppose the new Arizona immigration law.

Male facial width and trustworthiness

Researchers have found that men with greater facial width were more likely to exploit the trust of others and that people were less likely to trust male counterparts with wide rather than narrow faces (independent of their attractiveness).

Five young children have been hurt at a school in north-eastern China after a man attacked them with a hammer before killing himself

It was the third such incident in China in as many days. The man, said to be a local farmer, grabbed two children before setting himself on fire at the pre-school in Shandong province's Weifang city. The children were pulled to safety, and all five - plus an injured teacher - were said to be stable in hospital. China is reeling from a spate of apparent copy-cat attacks in schools. Previously, 28 children - most of them aged around four - and three adults were attacked by an unemployed man wielding a knife at a nursery school in Jiangsu province, eastern China. Five of the children were taken to hospital in a critical condition. And a day earlier, some 15 pupils and a teacher were wounded by a former teacher - who was on sick leave - at their primary school in Guangdong province. Recently a doctor convicted of stabbing eight children to death in Fujian province in March was executed. Since a spate of attacks in 2004, many schools in China have employed professional guards but the latest incidents have led to public calls for increased security in schools. The education ministry ordered all schools to upgrade their security facilities, as well as teach students about safety and ensure young children are escorted home. But such measures are expensive and in reality there is little that can be done to prevent such acts of violence. The incidents have also sparked a debate about the motives of the killers, with some suggesting that rapid social change and growing unemployment has led to an increase in psychiatric illnesses.

Three sisters have suffered serious facial burns after two unidentified men on a motorbike threw acid at them in Pakistan's Balochistan province

The sisters, aged between 14 and 20 years old, were attacked as they walked from Kalat city to Pandarani village - one is still in a serious condition. There are no reliable statistics, but campaigners say there may be 150 acid attack victims in Pakistan each year. The police named the girls as Fatima Bibi, 20, Saima Bibi, 16 and Sakina Bibi, 14. They were taken to a government hospital in Kalat, but Fatima Bibi was later shifted to a hospital in the provincial capital, Quetta. No arrests have been made as yet. Recently an unknown group - the Baloch Ghairatmand Group (the Honourable Baloch Group) - claimed responsibility for a similar attack on two women in a market in Dalbandin city. The group had warned women to wear the hijab, the traditional Muslim headscarf, and not to visit markets unaccompanied by men from their families.

Muslims in Malawi have been angered by government plans to ban polygamy

A spokesman for the Muslim Association of Malawi said the proposed law would discriminate against the country's Muslim minority. He said with about 6% more women than men in Malawi, if polygamy were banned, many women would be left without a husband and become prostitutes. The gender minister said the ban was necessary to prevent women from being abused in polygamous relationships. She said problems occurred because men could not give their full attention to more than one woman.

High unemployment may last for years

Ed Morrissey on unemployment and the economy:
The last time the US suffered this kind of recession and unemployment, in 1982, it took several quarters of annualized growth of between 7%-9% in order to generate sufficient numbers of jobs to seriously lower unemployment. The long-term trend of the American economy is growth between 2.5-3%, which makes the 2010Q1 result barely a blip above average. It indicates that the current job situation may well become the “new normal,” with high unemployment remaining in place for years to come.

We will not see the kind of growth necessary to put people back to work until the government stops sending pricing signals of higher taxes and more burdensome regulation regimes. Capital will not flow back into the market under the conditions set by the Obama administration and the Democratic Congress over the last fifteen months. Instead, it will most likely flow overseas, in markets more friendly to capital investment, where the nation’s executive doesn’t offer off-the-cuff remarks about people making too much money.

A poll found that 70% of black teens thought their standard of living would be better than their parents, compared with just 36% of white students

Asked about Obama's performance as president, more than two-thirds of black students rated his performance as "good" or "very good," compared with 23% of white students. Overall, about a quarter of the students who were surveyed rated Obama's performance highly.

Forty-nine percent (49%) of U.S. voters now believe relations between whites and Hispanics in America are getting worse

A new national telephone survey finds that just 28% think white-Hispanic relations are improving. The survey was taken after Arizona’s passage of a law to crack down on illegal immigrants. Sixty-four percent (64%) of voters in the state support the new law. So do 60% of voters nationwide. There has been virtually no change in voter perceptions of black-Hispanic relations. Nineteen percent (19%) say the relationship between blacks and Hispanics is getting better, while 37% believe it’s getting worse. African-American voters remain more confident in the nation’s current course than whites and other voters.

Diversity is anti-Catholicism in Britain

The British official who wrote a memo mocking the Pope is of Pakistani background. Anjoum Noorani, 31, was the leader of the Papal Visit Team which drew up a document suggesting the Pope should launch his own range of “Benedict” condoms, open an abortion clinic and stay in a council flat in Bradford. Fortunately for Noorani, he doesn't have to worry about Catholics ordering a fatwa against him.

Black man kills his mother and puts her head in a bag

A black man was charged with murder after his mother was found dead in her Northwest Jacksonville home and her head was found in a bag a few blocks away. Officers said family members found the body of 43-year-old Jennifer Ling in her home in the 1500 block of West Sixth Street. A short time later, the victim's head was found in a plastic bag in a field on the other side of Kings Road. Police said witnesses reported seeing Jumar Henry carry that bag away from the house. Lt. Larry Schmitt said that Henry, along with other family members, were brought to the sheriff's office for questioning, but when he learned he was not going to be allowed to leave, he attempted to break out of the homicide office and had to be restrained. Officers said Henry's resistance resulted in an additional charge of battery on a law enforcement officer. He is being held without bond in the Duval County jail. Schmitt said police believe the homicide occurred during an altercation and the murder weapon was a steak knife Henry found in the house. Officers said that after the slaying, Henry went to visit his father, then went to church, where people noticed scratches on his face and blood under his fingernails and called police.

Sex tourism in Senegal attracts aging white women who will pay for "romance"

The growth of Senegal's female sex tourism has its roots in poverty and the lack of jobs for the country's young men. Senegal's unemployment for youths is estimated at 30%, according to the International Labor Organization, and the average person in Senegal earns about $3 a day, according to the World Bank.

14-year-old girl gang raped by black males

A 14-year-old girl was raped behind an apartment complex in east Pascagoula and 5 males ranging in age from 15 to 18 were arrested, the city Police Department reported. Police responded to the River Reach Apartments after the victim and a 15-year-old female friend told the victim's parents about the attack, and the parents called police. The parents took the victim to Singing River Hospital, where she was treated and released. Police would not say whether the girl or her friend knew the attackers. Police said an investigation found that the girl was raped by two of the suspects as the others watched behind a building at 3000 Brazil Street, which is east of Chicot Street and south of Old Mobile Highway. The 14-year-old and her friend were walking near the apartments when she was pulled to the rear of one of the buildings and raped by 17-year-old Tywan Magee of 4309 Scovel Ave. and 16-year-old Antonio Martin of 4420 Lynx, police said. Demarius Deontae Fountain, 15, of 4315 Orchard Road, and Zyron Jefferson, 17, watched and taunted the victim, police said. During the assault, 17-year-old Garry Thompson pulled the 15-year-old friend away from the victim when she tried to intervene, authorities said.

Almost half of South Africa's middle-class black teenagers plan to flee the country for greener pastures

Unscrupulous politicians, escalating crime, poor employment prospects and low education standards are behind a growing desire among South Africa's black youth to leave. In contrast, only 33% white and Indian youth want to go, reflecting a hardening of attitudes among black youngsters who have increasingly lost confidence in government. The latest national BratTrax study conducted by research group Youth Dynamix reveals that 42% of black teenagers between 13 and 15 are disillusioned and plan to leave as soon as they can. Reflecting views similar to their white and Indian counterparts, 71% of black youth felt it was impossible to get employment in South Africa; 58% said crime made them want to live in another country, and 73% felt government was not living up to its promises.

British politician talks about the power of the Jewish lobby

A Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate in Yorkshire told a hustings meeting that the power of the Jewish lobbies in Washington and Britain are the reason a full arms embargo has not been imposed on Israel. Madeleine Kirk, standing for the party in the new seat of York Outer, was speaking at the York University event. A question was asked about whether the candidates believed arms sales to Israel should be banned. Ms Kirk, a long-standing local city councillor, replied that an embargo should be in place, but was not, because of the Jewish lobby. She then went on to back Lib Dem peer Jenny Tonge’s call for an inquiry to disprove allegations that Israeli army medical teams in Haiti harvested organs of earthquake victims.

The Democratic Republic of Congo is the rape capital of the world, a senior UN official has said

Margot Wallstrom, the UN's special representative on sexual violence in conflict, urged the Security Council to punish the perpetrators in DR Congo. Rape remained a dominant feature of the ongoing conflict in eastern DR Congo, with impunity being the rule rather than the exception, she said. More than 8,000 women were raped during fighting in 2009, the UN says. The UN mission in DR Congo, Monuc, has been trying to deal with the problem by escorting women on their way to market, developing early warning systems and working with local officials, according to a UN statement. Research on sexual violence in DR Congo's eastern South Kivu province produced shocking findings. The report by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative showed that 60% of rape victims in South Kivu were gang raped by armed men, more than half of the assaults took place in the victims' homes and an increasing number of attacks were being carried out by civilians. Eastern DR Congo is still plagued by army and militia violence despite the end of the country's five-year war in 2003.

Nigeria's Senate has ordered an investigation into reports that one of its members has married a 13-year-old Egyptian girl

Ahmad Sani Yerima, 49, is alleged to have married her at the national mosque in Abuja. Senators called for the investigation after receiving a petition by protesting women's groups, who believe Sani has broken the law. The senator has not spoken publicly about the reports of his marriage. Nigeria's human rights commission has already begun an investigation. Sani was the governor of Zamfara state, where he oversaw the introduction of Sharia law - for the first time in a northern state - in 1999. The senator is reported to have paid a dowry of $100,000 to the child's parents - and to have brought the girl into Nigeria from Egypt. Newspaper reports have also accused the senator of having previously married a 15-year-old girl in 2006.

Human rights and free speech in Israel

More than half of Jewish Israelis think human rights organizations that expose immoral behavior by Israel should not be allowed to operate freely, and think there is too much freedom of expression, a recent survey found. The survey found that 57.6% of the respondents agreed that human rights organizations that expose immoral conduct by Israel should not be allowed to operate freely. Slightly more than half believe that there is too much freedom of expression in Israel. The poll also found that most of the respondents favor punishing Israeli citizens who support sanctioning or boycotting the country, and support punishing journalists who report news that reflects badly on the actions of the defense establishment. Another 82% of respondents said they back stiff penalties for people who leak illegally obtained information exposing immoral conduct by the defense establishment. The poll showed 65% of all of those questioned think the Israeli media should be barred from publishing news that defense officials think could endanger state security, even if the news was reported abroad. Another 43% said the media should not report information confirmed by Palestinian sources that could reflect poorly on the Israeli army and 58% of respondents opposed harsh criticism of the country, an increase of 10 percentage points from 2003.

Little more than a third of white voters currently think Obama is doing a good job as president

Obama’s job approval rating remains in the mid-to-high-40s overall only because he gets a thumbs up from more than 90% of blacks and gets majority support from Hispanics. Obama’s weakness among whites, who comprise almost three quarters of the electorate even as the nation’s population becomes more racially diverse, is a potentially sizable political problem for the nation’s first African-American president. A recent Quinnipiac poll found only 35% of whites gave Obama a positive job approval.

The difference between genetically similar and genetically identical

Carl Zimmer explains why two organisms can be genetically similar and yet very different:
Fifth, the oft-cited 98% figure for shared DNA is less impressive than it looks. Most DNA is unused, so natural selection never changes it. Another big chunk of your personal DNA controls the basics of earthly carbon-based life, and is extremely common across multitudinous organisms. Thus, one study found we share 70% of our DNA with yeast! Perhaps if you don't have a great ape around, you can scrape by letting a packet of Fleischmann's Quick-Rise pinch-hit as your role model. De Waal's statement that a chimp is as genetically similar to a human as a fox is to a dog may be true, but it should remind us of the striking number of gene-driven differences seen merely among dog breeds. A collie is identical to a pit bull in all but a tiny fraction of its genes, yet the two breeds differ radically in size, shape, behavior, mentality, and personality. Small genetic differences can have big consequences.

This also holds true for humans where genetic research shows that we share over 99% of our DNA and yet there are great biological differences between the various racial and ethnic groups.

South Asians, African-Caribbeans and diabetes

A study finds that precursors of higher risk of diabetes in South Asian and African-Caribbean adults in Britain are increased in healthy children from these ethnic groups. Scientists investigated whether ethnic differences in type 2 diabetes precursors could also be seen in 9 and 10 year old children in Britain. South Asian adults in Britain have approximately three times the risk of acquiring type 2 diabetes compared with the white British population, while people of African-Caribbean origin in Britain have roughly a two-fold greater risk. Levels of precursors of diabetes risk (particularly markers of blood glucose and insulin levels) in children mirror the disparities in adult diabetes risk. The researchers suggest that the ethnic differences in type 2 diabetes risk initially observed in immigrants to Britain persist in British-born South Asian and African-Caribbean communities.

Race and the human brain

The motor cortex region of an observer's brain responds differently to the performance of a particular task based on the race of the performer. The region reacts more when the performer is a member of the same race as the observer than when the performer and observer belong to different races.

Race and empathy

In a rare neuroscience look at racial minorities, a study shows that African-Americans showed greater empathy for African-Americans facing adversity than Caucasians demonstrated for Caucasian-Americans in pain. The more African-Americans identified as African-American the more likely they were to show greater empathic preference for African-Americans, the study showed. Does this mean that African-Americans are more racist?

A former senior Israeli Defense Ministry official has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for rape, sodomy and indecent acts against five women

Nissim Aharon, who posed as a rabbi with special healing powers, was convicted by the Petah Tikva District Court under a plea bargain. The court also gave him a one-year suspended sentence and ordered him to pay NIS 100,000 in compensation to the five women. According to the court, Aharon took advantage of the women's innocence and faith by telling them that his semen was holy, and they would be physically and spiritually healed and purified if they touched him.

Are the wheels starting to come off of Obamacare?

The Obama administration’s own actuary has reported that millions of people could lose their health insurance, that health-care costs will rise faster than they would have if the law hadn't passed, and that the overhaul will mean that people will have a harder time finding physicians to see them. The White House is trying to spin the new report from Medicare’s chief actuary Richard Foster as only half bad because it concludes that, while costs will increase, only 23 million people will remain uninsured (instead of 24 million previously estimated).

Tea Party activists are denounced for noticing racial differences

Did the stimulus help the economy?

The National Association for Business Economics polled 68 of its members who work in economic roles at private-sector firms. About 73% of those surveyed said employment at their company is neither higher nor lower as a result of the $787 billion Recovery Act, which the White House's Council of Economic Advisers says is on track to create or save 3.5 million jobs by the end of 2010. That sentiment is shared for the recently passed $17.7 billion jobs bill that calls for tax breaks for businesses that hire and additional infrastructure spending. More than two-thirds of those polled believe the measure won't affect payrolls, while 30% expect it to boost hiring only moderately.

Rabbi admits to being a money launderer

In a taped conversation with government witness Solomon Dwek, Eliahu Ben Haim, a well-respected Deal rabbi, makes a startling admission. "This is illegal, what we're doing," Ben Haim, 58, of Long Branch said to Dwek on Oct. 31, 2007, according to court documents. A year earlier, Ben Haim, at the time the principal rabbi at the Congregation Ohel Yaacov in Deal, bluntly stated, "I'm a money launderer. .. I'm going to be arrested." On July 23, 2009, Ben Haim and 43 others were arrested in a massive FBI sting that targeted political corruption and money laundering. Ben Haim has pleaded not guilty. Charged with laundering $1.5 million through Dwek, a failed real estate developer who turned government witness after being arrested by the FBI, Ben Haim has taken a leave of absence from the Ocean Avenue synagogue whose 2002 construction he helped supervise. His father, Haham Baruch Ben Haim, who died in 2005, was a highly respected rabbi and scholar who had led the congregation for 55 years. In April 2010, three Brooklyn men — Yeshaye Ehrental, Schumel Cohen and Akiva Aryeh Weiss — pleaded guilty in federal court to transmitting up to $1.8 million to Ben Haim and Dwek, the government's key witness in the case against the rabbi. Ben Haim's lawyer, Lawrence S. Lustberg, recently requested a postponement of trial until May 31 2010 to engage in additional plea negotiations.

Jenna Jameson's Hispanic boyfriend Tito Ortiz has been charged with beating her up

Ultimate Fighting champ Tito Ortiz has been arrested on charges of beating up his live-in girlfriend, porn queen Jenna Jameson, at their Southern California home. Ortiz, 35, the father of Jameson's 13-month-old twin boys, was hauled off to jail in handcuffs and charged with felony domestic violence. Police went to the couple's Huntington Beach home after a 911 call about a disturbance. Jameson, 36, who made the call, had visible injuries when officers spoke to her about what happened. Ortiz, the 6-foot-3, 205-pound former light heavyweight champ of Ultimate Fighting, has been booked at the Huntington Beach Jail. The 5-foot-7, 110-pound porn star said she plans to press charges.

A charter high school for blacks and Hispanics fails

Stanford education professors set out to create a model school to show how to educate low-income Hispanic and black students. They failed. In fact, the performance of the black and Hispanic students was so bad that the school made California’s list of schools in the lowest-achieving five percent in the state.

Is Pat Buchanan wrong about the Tea Party movement?

Jared Taylor on the Tea Party movement and race:
Whites are schizophrenic about race. When it matters to them personally, they can be shockingly illiberal. They clear out when the neighborhood turns Mexican or the public school turns black, and they do this whatever their politics. As Joe Sobran has noted, in their mating and migratory habits, liberals are no different from members of the Klan. But virtually no whites admit race has anything to do with this, and they claim not to care if the whole country goes black and Mexican.

Immigration and high non-white birthrates are turning ever-larger parts of the America into those very places where whites refuse to live, but once they have escaped from the joys of diversity, and found a little patch of homogeneity, whites forget why they moved. This deluded state of mind is now at least 50 years old, and is only slowly crumbling. Don’t expect a speaker at a Tea Party rally to point out the contradiction between wanting “good” schools, “safe” neighborhoods, and “diversity.”

I applaud the tea partiers’ opposition to big government and to Obama’s leftist politics. The country will need them if Obama is to be stopped after a single term. But they will not be an incipient ethno-nationalist movement until they dump Sarah Palin and make Patrick Buchanan their champion.

Glenn Beck: Pro-immigration media whore

Gender, class and education

Changes in education over the past few decades has reduced gender inequality and increased class inequality:
The principal beneficiaries of the expansion of higher education have been the daughters of the middle class. Six per cent of girls born into low-income families in both 1958 and 1970 went to university; for girls born into richer households, the rate rose from 21 per cent to 36 per cent.

"Educational upgrading" – the increase in the numbers of young ­people getting qualifications – accounts for 40 per cent of the fall in mobility for women between 1958 and 1970. This is, as Willetts says, a shocking statistic. The expansion of higher education, far from improving social mobility, has actually made it worse.

Women graduates marry male graduates and this trend towards "assortative mating" has increased in recent years, which means that on a household level, inequality is bound to rise. The narrowing of the gender gap seems to have widened the class gap. As Willetts puts it: "Feminism has trumped egalitarianism." And not just for one generation, either: just 5% of degree-­educated mothers split up from their partner before their child's third birthday, compared with 42% of mums with no qualifications.

Jewish jokes and the Obama administration

National Security Adviser James Jones told this joke when giving a speech at the Washington Institute For Near East Policy:
A Taliban militant gets lost and is wandering around the desert looking for water. He finally arrives at a store run by a Jew and asks for water. The Jewish vendor tells him he doesn't have any water but can gladly sell him a tie. The Taliban, the jokes goes on, begins to curse and yell at the Jewish store owner. The Jew, unmoved, offers the rude militant an idea: Beyond the hill, there is a restaurant; they can sell you water. The Taliban keeps cursing and finally leaves toward the hill. An hour later he’s back at the tie store. He walks in and tells the merchant: “Your brother tells me I need a tie to get into the restaurant.”

The Jews are already complaining about the joke being "anti-Semitic".

The new John McCain still panders to Hispanics

At a town hall meeting in support of Arizona's new law dealing with illegal immigration, McCain still tries to get Latino support:
One man chimed in that he was concerned about the mood, saying he was getting a vibe of animosity toward Mexican people in general.

McCain responded, “I am worried about anti-Hispanic feeling in this country and I am concerned about condemning good, honest citizens of Hispanic origin because of this (immigration) problem.” He noted Tucson was a Spanish-speaking city before it was English and he cherished the Latino heritage.

McCain just can't help himself. This is why I hope that this will be his last term in the Senate.

Scores of schoolgirls in the Afghan province of Kunduz have fallen ill in what authorities allege is mass poisoning by insurgents

On April 25, 2010 thirteen girls were taken ill. This follows two separate incidents when about 70 girls complained of dizziness and nausea. The girls said they noticed a strange smell in class before the onset of their symptoms, but health officials said the gas remains unidentified. The incidents all involved different schools. In May 2009, Afghan authorities launched an investigation after about 90 schoolgirls fell ill in Kapisa province. In recent years there has been an increase in attacks on schoolgirls in Afghanistan, mainly in the south and east of the country where several acid attacks on schoolgirls have been reported. Girls were banned from attending school during the rule of the Taliban, who were overthrown in the American-led invasion of 2001.

Gene flow into Africa

John Hawks has an interesting theory on whether or not ancient Homo sapiens mated with other species of humans:
At face value, it means that ancestral humans outside Africa did contribute genes to living populations, but only by means of very rare gene flow from Eurasia back into Africa before a subsequent replacement. In other words, the first modern humans in Africa would have been descendants of Africans and of Eurasian people. It's not surprising that the outcome is close to a model with very slight survival of Eurasian populations.

He is being held for investigation of second-degree assault and robbery in the strong-arm robbery of Bill Jordan, 59, according to Jackson. Jordan had just bought the iPad for a friend in Canada and was near the parking lot when the suspect struck. The suspect jerked so hard it stripped the skin on part of Jordan's pinky to the bone. At first he took off running after the suspect but saw blood on his hand and went for medical attention instead.

A telephone survey finds that 70% of likely voters in Arizona approve of legislation restricting immigration, while just 23% oppose it

Eighty-three percent of Arizona voters say a candidate's position on immigration is an important factor in how they will vote, including 51% who say it’s very important. Arizonans consistently have been critical of the U.S. government’s failure to secure the border with Mexico, and that anxiety has increased with growing drug violence along the border. Eighty-four percent of Arizona Republicans and 69% of voters not affiliated with either major party in the state favor the new get-tough legislation. Democrats are more closely divided: 51% like the new law, but 43% oppose it.

Jewish tax evader blames the Holocaust

A Jewish watchmaker said he hid funds in a Swiss bank account because of survival behavior learned from the Holocaust. Jack Barouh argued his secretive behavior was motivated by his fear as a Jew of persecution and sudden loss. Barouh had pleaded guilty in February 2010 to filing a false tax return which did not include his assets held in a range of foreign accounts. He admitted hiding about $10 million in bank accounts he controlled from 2002 to 2008, not only in Switzerland.

Africa and the absence of civilizational restraints

The violent conflicts that we are now seeing in Africa are largely the result of the collapse of civilization in the post-colonial period. Without Europeans to impose law and order there is nothing to stop the black Africans from killing and raping each other.

About 90% of black slaves shipped to the Americas were enslaved by black Africans

Henry Louis Gates writes about the role that black Africans played in the slave trade:
While we are all familiar with the role played by the United States and the European colonial powers like Britain, France, Holland, Portugal and Spain, there is very little discussion of the role Africans themselves played. And that role, it turns out, was a considerable one, especially for the slave-trading kingdoms of western and central Africa. These included the Akan of the kingdom of Asante in what is now Ghana, the Fon of Dahomey (now Benin), the Mbundu of Ndongo in modern Angola and the Kongo of today’s Congo, among several others.

For centuries, Europeans in Africa kept close to their military and trading posts on the coast. Exploration of the interior, home to the bulk of Africans sold into bondage at the height of the slave trade, came only during the colonial conquests, which is why Henry Morton Stanley’s pursuit of Dr. David Livingstone in 1871 made for such compelling press: he was going where no (white) man had gone before.

How did slaves make it to these coastal forts? The historians John Thornton and Linda Heywood of Boston University estimate that 90 percent of those shipped to the New World were enslaved by Africans and then sold to European traders. The sad truth is that without complex business partnerships between African elites and European traders and commercial agents, the slave trade to the New World would have been impossible, at least on the scale it occurred.

I wonder what Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson think of this unpleasant little fact?

Arizona's governor has signed into law an immigration bill seen as one of the toughest in the nation, despite strong criticism by Barack Obama

The bill signed by Governor Jan Brewer will require state police to question people about their immigration status if there is reasonable suspicion. The bill also makes it a crime under state law to be in the United States illegally. Brewer signed the bill into law live on television, saying it protects every Arizona citizen. She said the measure would strengthen border controls in the state, which borders Mexico. The governor also said she had to act because the federal government had failed to tackle illegal immigration. Obama said he had instructed the Justice Department to examine if the bill was legal. Left wing "civil rights" groups have said they will mount a legal challenge to have the law overthrown on the grounds that it paves the way for widespread discrimination against Hispanics. One group, the National Council of La Raza, said the bill would turn Hispanics into suspects in their own communities. Supporters of the bill say it will help bring illegal immigration under control in Arizona. Arizona is the main entry point for illegal immigrants into the United States.

Some 80 people have died in Uganda after drinking illegal home-made banana gin laced with methanol, a health official says

Many people have died because relatives did not want to admit that people had been drinking the gin, known as waragi. The deaths have occurred in the south-western Kabale district. The authorities were conducting house-to-house searches for the gin. Waragi is drunk across Uganda, often by those who cannot afford industrialized alcohol. Deaths from drinking it are common but this is the largest number killed at one time for several years. About 120 jerrycans of waragi have been seized. Those affected became blind and suffered liver and kidney failure before dying.

Woman sacrificed to appease tribal god in India

A priest and three others have been arrested for sacrificing an old woman to appease a tribal god in Jharkhand's Latehar district, police said. Budhani Devi, 60, a resident of Khaira Jagir village, was abducted by Bhuneshwar Baiga, the priest, and his accomplices - Balram Mistry, Basuwa Oraon and Mahendra Singh. Budhani's son Kundan Oraon, who set off to search for his mother, found his mother's clothing and bangles near a forest and enquired about her whereabouts from nearby villagers. When he discovered that she had been sacrificed by the four men to appease a local tribal god, Pasa Gamhel, he immediately informed the police and the accused were arrested. In Jharkhand, 11 cases of human sacrifices have been reported since 2003.

Five Israelis have been charged with organ trafficking

Israel has charged five of its citizens, including a retired army general, with operating a nationwide organ trafficking ring that ensnared dozens of potential victims. The charges include human trafficking for the purpose of organ harvesting and money laundering. The indictment says that the ring exploited the desperate condition of sick people and called it a form of modern slavery. The traffickers allegedly offered up to $100,000 per kidney but in at least two cases did not pay the donors.

Our costly Middle Eastern foreign policy

Dennis Mangan on the cost of supporting Israel:
The U.S. currently gives nearly $3 billion annually to Israel, a figure not including loan gurantess, and almost the same amount to Egypt, which has to be included in the cost of supporting Israel, since it's essentially a bribe for keeping the peace. Our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost thousands of American lives and hundreds of billions of dollars; even if these are not in direct support of Israel, which is debatable, they come directly from our involvement in the Middle East.

The sickest patients with swine flu were more likely to be young adults, obese and of Hispanic or Pacific Island descent

Researchers examined the records of 47 H1N1, or swine flu, patients admitted to adult intensive care units in Utah at Intermountain Medical Center, LDS Hospital, and the University of Utah Health Sciences Center between May 19 and June 30, 2009, the first outbreak period in Utah. All of the 47 patients resided within Salt Lake County. They found a disproportionate number among minorities. Pacific Islanders make up 1% of the county's population, but accounted for 26% of the H1N1 stays in the intensive care unit. Hispanics are 13% of the population, but 23% of the H1N1 cases studied. The patients were also more likely to be overweight. All of the eight patients who died were obese or morbidly obese, the study found.

Immigrants take 98.5% of new jobs in Britain

New figures show that total British employment rose from around 25.7 million in 1997 to 27.4 million at the end of 2009, an increase of 1.67 million, but immigrants took an amazing 98.5% of those new jobs. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) said that over ten years only Luxembourg had seen a larger share of new jobs taken by immigrants than Britain.

Police in India say a controversial Hindu holy man facing charges of obscenity has been arrested

Nithyananda Swami was detained in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh where police said he had been hiding. The guru stepped down in March 2010 as head of a religious organization based in the southern city of Bangalore. His announcement came after a video apparently showing him engaging in sexual acts with two women. Nithyananda Swami has a huge following in southern India and his mission has branches in several countries, including the US and Europe.

A Muslim who killed his wife by using her veil to strangle her in their home did so in the belief he was entitled to dominate her

Soltan Azizi has been sentenced to 22 years' jail by Justice Betty King, who said the Afghani refugee had been physically abusive towards Marzieh Rahimi throughout their 14-year marriage. Justice King said Ms Rahimi had sought help from social workers and was intending to leave Azizi, despite him warning that he would kill her if she tried. She said Azizi had complained to Ms Rahimi's sister in the days prior to her killing that his wife was becoming too Australian. The couple, who had five children aged from 14 to 2, came to Australia in 2005 after fleeing Afghanistan and spending seven years in refugee camps in Iran. Azizi will serve a minimum of 17 years and six months before he is eligible for parole.

There are striking differences in the cardiovascular risk profiles of four ethnic groups - white, Chinese, South Asian and black - living in Ontario

The researchers found that the Chinese population had the lowest overall prevalence of heart disease (3.2%) and stroke (0.6%) while South Asians had the highest prevalence (5.2% and 1.7%). Despite having the least desirable cardiovascular risk profile, the black population had a relatively low prevalence of heart disease (3.4%). Smoking and obesity were more common in the white population while the South Asian and black populations had the highest levels of diabetes and hypertension. The researchers conclude that there may be a need to develop ethnically tailored strategies for preventing cardiovascular risk factors in Canada.

Black children were one-third more likely than white children to be hospitalized for a ruptured appendix in 2006

The hospital admission rate of black children for a ruptured appendix in 2006 was 365 per 1,000 admissions, compared with 276 per 1,000 admissions for white children. Hispanic children had the second-highest rate, 344.5 per 1,000 admissions followed by Asian and Pacific Island children, at 329 per 1,000 admissions. At all income levels, black and Hispanic children had higher ruptured appendix rates than white children.

Is Obama making America poorer?

Over the next 30 years, economists associated with the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, estimate (as have many U.S. economists) that the U.S. public debt will rise to between 200% and 500% of GDP. (It is now about 60%.) Debt levels of 200% to 500% cannot be supported; hence, the debt holders will face erosion of their capital through either inflation or nonpayment.If many of the policies of the Obama administration are not reversed, America will only get poorer and, in as little as 30 years, become a middle-income country, while dozens of other countries will enjoy a higher standard of living.

Australia to reopen detention center

White American parents looking to adopt a child prefer girls over boys, and non-black children over African-Americans

A group of economists studied five years worth of data from 2004-2009 culled from a website run by an adoption intermediary. They found that a non-African-American baby was seven times more likely to attract the interest and attention of potential adoptive parents than an African-American baby. The bias in favor of girls and non-black children was seen across all categories of adoptive parents, and the gender bias against boys was even slightly stronger among gay men and lesbian couples seeking to adopt a child.

Immigration, overpopulation and the environment

From an article on the late environmentalist Senator Gaylord Nelson:
Americans now number 310 million, and the Census Bureau projects another 130 million by 2050, pushing us to 440 million. And we would still be growing rapidly with no end in sight! Under this crushing pressure, virtually every environmental goal becomes unattainable, from reducing our national ecological footprint and carbon emissions to rescuing endangered species and ecosystems. Achieving these will be mission impossible, as much a pipe dream as losing weight and getting fitter all while eating more and more.

And yet today’s environmentalist leaders are strangely silent in the face of this unfolding demographic disaster. Why? Because immigration, or “the i-word,” since environmental groups dare not utter it, is now pushing our population upward. Over 80 percent of the projected increase to 2050 will be due to directly and indirectly to immigration. Fearful of alienating progressive allies and growing numbers of Hispanics and Asians, and loath to be lumped (however unfairly) with repugnant xenophobes, the largely white, liberal, and yes, squeamish environmental establishment either opts to look the other way on population — or they insist it is a “global problem that needs global solutions,” thereby abrogating the need for any meaningful action on their part. Never mind that, on a planet dominated by sovereign nation-states, there are literally no realistic means available to work at a “global” scale.

But liberal, Democratic icon Gaylord Nelson did not flinch or look the other way or frame the problem so vaguely as to preclude national action. His many speeches on environmental sustainability continually highlighted the U.S. population problem. A newspaper article describing one Earth Day speech began: “Senator Gaylord Nelson spoke to a standing-room only audience advocating that the U.S. limit immigration before U.S. resources are depleted.” At a Washington press conference, Nelson bristled at the notion that limiting immigration is inherently racist.

In a March 2000 speech, Nelson warned that the U.S. could become as overpopulated as China and India. “With twice the population, will there be any wilderness left? Any quiet place? Any habitat for song birds? Waterfalls? Other wild creatures? Not much,” he said.

Hopefully environmentalists will eventually realize that what they call "racism" is just plain common sense. Unfortunately, by that time, it may be too late to do anything to save our country and its natural environment.

Is George Lopez really 55% European?

Megan Smolenyak has some doubts about the type of genetic testing used on Lopez Tonight:
When Larry David responded as if his 37 percent Native American results were a joke, his instincts were correct. The best known quirk of the test Lopez Tonight is using is its problem distinguishing between Asian and Native American (understandable, given that if you go back far enough, Native Americans originate from Asia), but a lesser known quirk is its tendency to assign Native American percentages to many of Iberian, Italian and Ashkenazi heritage - and Larry David is Ashkenazi. Sorry to burst any "imagine that!" bubbles, but more sophisticated testing would likely produce significantly different results.

So George, are you really 55 percent European, 32 percent Native American, nine percent Asian and four percent African? Maybe, but I have my doubts. This same test pegged me as eight percent Native American and six percent African, which is curious, given that I'm half-Irish/half-Slavic and most of my family has only been in America for three or four generations. More current testing identified me as one hundred percent European - admittedly blander, but certainly more credible for someone of my ancestry.

I truly am grateful to Lopez Tonight for shining a spotlight on genetic genealogy and I hope the show will continue to encourage its guests to take DNA tests, but please, call me so I can save you some serious backpedaling down the road! I'll even spring for your retesting, George!

Many of the commercial DNA tests available to the general public are still works in progress and the results should be taken with a large grain of salt particularly if they conflict with information you already know about your ancestry.

The English rate themselves the least patriotic nation in Europe, a poll suggests

Almost half of English people said their country had lost its identity in the face of European interference and political correctness. The findings were published in advance of St George’s Day which, as two thirds of those polled did not know, is on April 23. Only one in ten would happily fly the cross of St George to celebrate the national saint’s day. Double that number said they thought they would be told by authorities to remove it if they flew it from their house. The new survey showed that 6% of English people are scared to show the flag and around 18% are worried that if they do they will be instructed by officialdom to take it down. More than one in four English people said they feared being branded racist, but four out of 10 said they would happily express their national pride behind closed doors. Four out of 10 said they felt England had completely lost its national identity.

Far more people in India have access to a mobile phone than to a toilet, according to a UN study on sanitation

India's mobile subscribers totalled 563.73 million at the last count, enough to serve nearly half of the country's 1.2 billion population. But just 366 million people - around a third of the population - had access to proper sanitation in 2008, said the study published by the United Nations University, a UN think-tank.

Women who wear revealing clothing and behave promiscuously are to blame for earthquakes, a senior Iranian cleric has said

Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi's comments follow a warning by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that a quake is certain to hit the capital Tehran and that many residents should relocate. Iran is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, and seismologists have warned for 20 years that one is likely to hit Tehran, which straddles scores of fault lines, in the near future. Some 12million people live in the city, which was last struck in 1830. Some experts have even suggested Iran should move its capital to a less seismically active location. Tehran straddles scores of fault lines, including one more than 50 miles long, though it has not suffered a major quake since 1830. In 2003, a powerful earthquake hit the southern city of Bam, killing 31,000 people - about a quarter of that city's population - and destroying its ancient mud-built citadel.

Half Sigma makes a fool of himself again

Half Sigma on the whiteness of Jews:
The typical Greek is darker looking than the typical Ashkenazi Jew from Northern Europe, and White Nationalists don't think that Jews are white, so I guess Greeks too are not white, despite being from Europe. (Unfortunately for Greeks, they don't benefit from affirmative action, unlike Europeans from Spain who get to check the Hispanic box).

Of course, if high IQ is one of the hallmarks separating whites from less intelligent races, then Jews are actually the whitest ethnicity.

This would then mean that the Chinese, who have an average IQ of around 107, would be whiter than many Europeans. When people use the term white they usually mean someone of indigenous European ancestry. Jews, including Ashkenazi Jews, are mostly of Middle Eastern ancestry. According to a 2009 genetics paper by Michael Seldin and his colleagues:
In addition, the 93 AIM set provides population substructure information that can, for example, distinguish Arab and Ashkenazi from Northern European population groups and Pygmy from other Sub-Saharan African population groups.

AIM stands for ancestry informative markers which are genetic markers that exhibit substantially different frequencies between populations from different geographical regions. The fact that Ashkenazi Jews are more like Arabs than Northern Europeans, in terms of their DNA, means that the Jews are not white.

Drug violence and Mexican immigration

Bushmeat and simian foamy virus

Officials in New York have identified two strains of simian foamy virus in wildlife imported as food — known as “bushmeat” — from three primate species: two mangabey monkeys and a chimpanzee, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). All of these animals are also endangered. Preliminary studies show that humans can contract simian foamy virus, but its long-term effects remain unknown. Could another AIDS-like epidemic therefore be on the horizon? The WCS, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and others are trying to prevent that from happening. Inspection and health officials have seized hundreds of samples of wildlife and wildlife products coming through luggage and mail parcels through main entry points for both people and goods into New York City and the United States. Samples have been taken from at least 14 species, including great apes, monkeys, rodents, and bats. In addition to the simian foamy virus, the officials have also been testing for flavivirus and filovirus, but those results haven't been released yet. More than 70% of zoonoses, which are diseases that affect both animals and humans, stem from human contact with wildlife. According to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, more than one billion individual animals were imported into the United States from 2000 to 2004, along with over 11 million pounds of bushmeat and other animal products. Diseases of wildlife origin that have impacted public health through the consumption or trade of wild animals include monkey pox, SARS, HIV/AIDS (stemming from human infection with simian immunodeficiency virus), and others.

A black man is behind bars accused of offering a 17-year-old girl for sex

Hillsborough Sheriff's spokesman J.D. Callaway says Derek Williams brought the teen and a woman in her thirties to a meeting with undercover deputies. Williams is charged with two counts of deriving support from prostitution, two counts of transporting for the purposes of prostitution, two counts of soliciting another to commit prostitution and one count of interference with custody.

Harris was wanted in Palm Beach County Florida for Unlawful Sexual Activity with a Minor, Lewd or Lascivious Battery, Child Abuse, Showing Obscene Material to a Minor and Promoting Sexual Performance by a Child. The charges against Harris are a result of Harris allegedly promising young male athletes that he would find recruiting scouts/scholarships in exchange for sex acts.

A Hispanic illegal immigrant faces a federal charge after reportedly forcing one mentally disabled teenager into prostitution and raping another

A judge denied bail for 25-year-old Mario Alberto Laguna-Guerrero. The U.S. Attorney's Office has charged Laguna-Guerrero with sex trafficking, with a maximum sentence of life in prison. Authorities say Laguna-Guerrero charged migrants $25 in exchange for sex with a 17-year-old mentally disabled girl, who he claimed was his girlfriend. Authorities say Laguna-Guerrero also raped the girl's 19-year-old classmate, while the first girl watched. Laguna-Guerrero was initially arrested by Hillsborough County deputies on sexual battery charges.

Intelligence, equal opportunity and social equality

Christopher Badcock Ph.D. on human intelligence:
Equal opportunities and increasing social equality in certain respects means that a person’s innate qualities count for more than they may have done in the past. This is demonstrably so in the case of intelligence and education. In 1930, Ivy League graduates had IQs just over 1 standard deviation (SD) above the population mean. By 1990 it was almost 2.7 SDs above, and as Herrnstein and Murray pointed out, “when a society makes good on the ideal of letting every youngster have equal access to the things that allow cognitive ability to develop, it is in effect driving the environmental component of IQ variation closer and closer to nil.” But of course by the same reasoning it is also driving the genetic factor closer and closer to being the dominant one, and what is true of IQ in particular is also likely to be generally true of other cognitive skills and abilities.

Indian police are investigating a suspected case of human sacrifice

Police in India are investigating a suspected case of human sacrifice after the severed head and naked torso of a man were found at a temple to the goddess Kali in the state of West Bengal. Human sacrifice in India endures in grizzly secret ceremonies. Kali, the Hindu goddess of time and change, is often portrayed as insatiably bloodthirsty, wearing a necklace of bleached human skulls. Historically, her followers formed blood-cults, hoping to receive blessings of fertility, health and wealth in return for human lives. Such beliefs persist, especially in underdeveloped, rural areas where people desperate to improve their circumstances turn to witchdoctors for advice. Recently a three-year-old boy was murdered as a child sacrifice in the state of Uttar Pradesh by a tantric priest. It was the second such murder of a child in two months in the same district. In October 2009, two senior scientists at the Government-run Defence Research and Development Establishment (DRDE) in the city of Gwalior tried to kill a junior colleague in another human sacrifice bid.

Witchcraft and vultures in South Africa

A rise in the witchcraft practice known as muti among black South Africans has nearly wiped out the country’s vulture population, who are killed to help people win the lottery.

South Asian swindler jailed in Britain

Niem Mohammed claimed his skills as a faith healer and spiritualist had been passed down through generations. The 41-year-old said he lived in Pakistan when he was aged five to 18 to learn about his culture and maintained his gift had been passed down his family. But Wolverhampton Crown Court was told he was a swindler who took advantage of vulnerable people. Mohammed, who has a luxury home in Cheshire and drives a Bentley and a Ferrari, charged a Smethwick couple £9,650 to break a black magic spell he said was placed on the woman by her jealous sister and he told her he would use prayer to help her conceive a child with her partner. He also took £1,300 off a woman to help mend a broken relationship and, when nothing happened, he told her he needed a further £1,800. Mohammed further threatened her that he would send a Sikh ghost to destroy her home and family if she did not pay up. He said that Mohammed claimed he was born at a place of pilgrimage in India when in fact he was born in Liverpool. Mohammed was found guilty on 11 charges of fraud. In his defence Mohammed demonstrated to the jury his meditation and prayer techniques and showed them his scrolls and talismans.

Black gang alliance in plot to kill cops discovered in drug and gun ring takedown

A massive gang takedown in Queens uncovered a rare alliance between the black gangs known as Bloods and Crips and a ruthless plot to assassinate police officers. The revelations came as law enforcement unveiled the chilling results of long-running Operation Under Siege - 104 suspects, dozens of guns, two slayings and piles of drugs and cash. The sprawling case was built on wiretaps - including recordings of gang associate Keith Livingston, who blabbed about plans to protect his drug turf by killing cops on patrol.

Cannibalism and the Donner party

New research shows that there is no evidence of cannibalism among the 84 members of the Donner Party who were trapped by a snowstorm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the mid-1840s. The legend of the Donner party was primarily created by print journalists, who embellished the tales based on their own Victorian macabre sensibilities and their desire to sell more newspapers.

Black men, chronic pain and depression

Black men with chronic pain related to an accident, injury, illness, surgery or other causes were more likely to experience depression, affective distress and disability than white men with chronic pain, according to a new study. The research also showed that being a member of the black race was a predictor of lower neighborhood income, less education and lower marriage rates. Married men have fewer symptoms of depression than unmarried ones which meant that blacks were at a higher risk of depression than were whites.

Race and arthritis

A new study has better defined how arthritis affects people of different races and ethnic groups, finding that blacks and Hispanics face significantly more pain and disability when diagnosed with rheumatic diseases than whites. One reason that blacks and Hispanics may face more pain and disability than whites is that these groups are more likely to get the most severe, systemic forms of arthritis like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Also some ethnic groups, such as Native Americans, have higher rates of other health problems that are associated with the development of arthritis. They have more obesity and diabetes, for example, and these are some of the largest drivers of osteoarthritis risk, in particular.

Illegal immigrant rapist from India could stay in Britain

Sukdarshan Singh, an Indian, arrived in Britain unlawfully in 1984 and raped a 59-year-old woman four years later. He was only linked to the attack in 2006 after being arrested for drunk driving and was jailed for four and a half years. An immigration tribunal ruled he should be deported but the Court of Appeal has overturned the decision because it had failed to take in to account his rights to family life as he now has a British wife and two teenage children.

Islamist militants al-Shabab have banned teachers using bells to signal the end of class in the town of Jowhar, 56 miles north of Mogadishu

Al-Shabab said the bells sounded too much like Christian church bells. This comes after a recent order by the Hizbul-Islam group that radios stop playing music because it is un-Islamic. In the past, Islamist militants have banned watching films and football, as well as musical mobile phone ring-tones. They have also carried out amputations and lashings for theft and stonings for adultery.

Students at Koranic schools in Senegal are severely abused and subjected to slavery-like conditions, lobby group Human Rights Watch (HRW) says

The HRW report calls for regulation at Koranic schools in Senegal and for abusive teachers to be punished. HRW says at least 50,000 children - most under 12, some only four - are forced into begging, beaten and neglected by their teachers. Senegal is a largely Muslim society and Koranic schools have great influence. HRW says some teachers at Koranic schools collect over $100,000 a year from the begging, using an Islamic education as cover for the economic exploitation of the children in their care.

More than half of the victims of rape in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo were gang raped by armed men

Research in the eastern South Kivu province shows that 60% of the rape victims were gang raped by armed men and more than half of the assaults took place in the victims' homes. In 2009, the UN says more than 5,000 people were raped in South Kivu.

Maine commission moves to ban gender specific bathrooms in schools

The Maine Human Rights Commission is taking heat over a proposal to ban schools from enforcing gender divisions in sports teams, school organizations, bathrooms and locker rooms, saying forcing a student into a particular room or group because of their biological gender amounts to discrimination. The issue came to light in 2009 when the commission ruled that, under the Maine Human Rights Act, a school had discriminated against a 12-year-old transgender boy by denying him access to the girls' bathroom.

Constance Holden, a veteran reporter for Science magazine, died suddenly after being struck on her bike by a National Guard truck

Here is an excerpt from one of her articles:
By studying twins and adopted children, scientists have ascertained that genes have a marked effect on cognitive abilities, although this finding is still not accepted by many social scientists. Most behavioral geneticists now agree that the heritability of IQ is somewhere between 50 and 70 percent. But research on the genetics of personality is a more slippery area than IQ because measurements are not as old and well-validated, and personality characteristics are not as stable as IQ. Nonetheless, some provocative findings have emerged.

A South African doctor wants to distribute 30,000 free anti-rape condoms for women ahead of the football World Cup

Dr Sonnet Ehlers first developed the special condom in 2005 and says it is now ready for widespread use. The Rape-aXe, as it is called, is a condom women can insert themselves. The interior has tiny spines which, in case of rape, attach to the man's penis. Dr Ehlers emphasizes that they do not draw blood, since this would increase the danger of HIV infection. However, they do cause a great deal of pain if the man tries to remove the condom. The condom has to be removed in hospital, she says, which means the rapist can immediately be arrested.

New York State officials are trying keep a black man busted for deliberately spreading the HIV/AIDS virus locked up past his prison term

State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's office has filed paperwork in Buffalo Supreme Court to commit Nushawn Williams to a mental hospital after his prison term expires. Williams, also known as Shyteek Johnson, served 12 years after pleading guilty to reckless endangerment and two counts of rape. Despite knowing he was HIV positive, he had unprotected sex with 12 women in upstate Chautaqua county and a 15-year-old in the Bronx. Officials say he slept with dozens of other women. Williams, who is married with four kids, pegged the number as high as 300 in a past interview. Thirteen of Williams' victims were infected with HIV, with two later passing it on to their own children. Williams, 33, didn't change much behind bars, having thrown bodily fluids at other inmates and been sanctioned 21 times for violent conduct, threats, fighting, and possession of drugs and weapons. All told, he spent 943 days of his sentence in disciplinary housing, according to court documents. He did not complete any sex offender or drug treatment programs. Cuomo's team warns that because Williams served his full term - he had been denied parole three times - he would not be subjected to community supervision if released. State Office of Mental Health psychologist Jacob Hadden, who interviewed Williams, diagnosed him with a mental abnormality that would allow him to be civilly confined under the law. If a jury agrees, Williams can be locked up in a mental institution or released under strict and intensive parole supervision.

Black man is accused of five murders in a two month period

Shiquan Bellamy, one of the three people arrested in connection with a Jersey City couple, is accused of three other murders. Bellamy is being held on $6 million bail after being changed in the execution-style killings of a couple in Jersey City who had returned from their engagement party on Easter. The 19-year-old has also charged with three more killings. Bellamy is charged in the Feb. 2 2010 murders of cousins Mileak Richardson and Lester Thompson in Jersey City. Bellamy is also charged with the murder of Lamonte Wright on March 27 2010 in Jersey City. Darmelia Lawrence, 19, and Latonia Bellamy, 19 are also charged in connection with the Jersey City couple's killings. The Bellamys are believed to be cousins and they were the shooters according to the Hudson County prosecutor. Michael Muchiaki, 27, and Nia Haqq, 25, were shot twice in the head near their car, which was not taken, in an apparent botched carjacking.

Children, race and family

Steve Sailer has an insight into race that many liberals lack:
Actually, the interesting thing is that toddlers tend to develop an insight into race that is generally lost by grown-up intellectuals when writing about race: race is about who your Mommy and Daddy are, topics that are deeply interesting to children (and to all humans), but aren't recognized in conventional discourse about race.... For example, if you show preschoolers drawings of people and ask them to match the children with their mommies, on average they will correctly tell you that the skinny white child belongs to the fat white mommy, while the fat black child belongs to the skinny black mommy (or vice-versa). They consider race a better predictor of family relationship than body shape.

Religion and ethnoreligion

Steve Sailer explains that your ethnicity and religion are often connected. For example, Leon Trotsky was ethnically Jewish, Ted Kennedy was ethnically Catholic and many of the Founding Fathers were ethnically Protestant even if some of these individuals did not follow all of the religious requirements of their backgrounds.

Normally, children show clear preferences for their own ethnic group by the age of 3, if not sooner

Children assign good traits, such as friendliness, to pictures of people the same race as themselves. When asked something negative, such as "which is the naughty boy," they overwhelmingly pointed to the other race. Whether they are white, black or of other races, children think more highly of their own ethinic group. Even children with autism display racial stereotypes, despite profound difficulties in daily social interaction and a general failure to show adapted social knowledge.

A New York rabbi has been sentenced to a maximum of 32 years in jail for the repeated sexual abuse of a 16-year-old boy

Baruch Lebovits, 59, was convicted on eight charges of abuse of the teenager between 2004 and 2005, and was given the maximum sentence on each count - meaning he would serve between 10 years and eight months and 32 years behind bars. The rabbi is also a prominent businessman in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, where the teenager also lived, said Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes. Two separate cases of Lebovits's alleged sexual assaults on minors are still pending.

Superstition in the Congo

Rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo have kidnapped a Spanish doctor and shaved off all his body hair in the hope it will give them magic powers in battle, according to a Congolese government minister. The Spanish Foreign Ministry confirmed that Mario Zarza Manresa, a doctor who was travelling through the vast Central African nation, had been kidnapped. Mr Zarza Manresa was seized while travelling down the Congo River on a boat that was overrun by rebels. Congolese Information Minister said that Zarza Manresa had been shaved completely by Ibrahim (a rebel leader) who believes in magical fetishes made with hair and body hair of whites. Gunmen from Congo's plethora of rebel and pro-government armed groups often adorn themselves with trinkets or traditional garments before heading into battle, in the belief that they will protect them from the bullets of the enemy. Some believe wearing fetishes will turn bullets into water.

Islamic judge says that Muslims have no right to question the judgment of the Sharia Court as this would be like questioning the laws of Allah

A Sharia Court Judge in Northern Nigeria gave a judgment in which he pronounced his rulings in favor of the radical group known as the Muslim Brotherhood of Nigeria which wanted to put a stop to the online debate through social networking sites started by the advocacy group known as the Civil Rights Congress about the unjust amputation of a poor man's limb through Sharia law. What sparked off this furor of recent online debate was the barbaric amputation of the limb of a man after being found guilty of stealing a cow. Another man also had his right hand cut off, after being convicted of stealing three bicycles. And presently, there are several dozens of people in jail awaiting amputation across Northern Nigerian States of Sokoto, Zamfara, Kano, Jigawa, Bauchi, Kaduna, Borno and Gombe among others.
