I'm an atheist, but I have no interest in joining your 'movement'
2015-01-25 09:10:26 (3 minutes ago) 

I do understand the desire to feel like part of a community of like-minded believers: that’s what most people turn to religion for in the first place

Most atheists I know talk about their “lack” or “rejection” of religion– their active stance against belief in any higher power. But for me, it’s not active at all.

For a long time I felt the need to defend my passive atheism against believers and non-believers alike. Believers, of course, accused me of having no moral compass, or pitied me for apparently being too dumb to know what I was missing. In those moments, I could see why people would seek out atheist communities (of which there seem to be more every day). Given that, according to some recent polls, people are more likely to vote for just about any other candidate over an atheist, and about 73% of Americans believe in either Creationism or god-guided evolution, finding a gathering of like-minded people can certainly sound comforting.

GOP Gathering in Iowa Highlights Divided Party
2015-01-25 08:31:19 (42 minutes ago) 

Rick Klein says Saturday’s Iowa Freedom Summit “quickly and frequently got sidetracked. There were familiar diversions, even more familiar intra-party battles, brief heckling episodes, and a few famous faces who are only tangentially involved with national politics these days.”

“The result was that at a showcase moment for an energized Republican Party, with a deep bench of talented presidential aspirants, the fault lines of policy and personality that have defined the GOP during the Obama era made themselves known yet again. The clear signal was that they’re unlikely recede amid the most wide-open field in modern history.”

Bristol City v West Ham United: FA Cup fourth round – live!

Latest updates as Bristol City seek to continue weekend of Cup shocksE-mail nick.miller.casual@theguardian.com | Tweet: @NickMiller79 Scoreboard: all today’s latest scores!

1.25pm GMT

This season has been weird enough for West Ham. Weird watching them win a load of games, weird watching them do so in many cases with no little élan, weird watching Sam Allardyce take the very deserved praise coming his way with something approaching grace and humility. They’re seventh in the table and have managed to forge the old and new, to marry playing vaguely stylishly with playing Andy Carroll up top. In short, it’s going bloody well for a team who, if the mob had ruled at the back end of last season, would have gone into this season with a completely different manager, and it’s tricky to see how that new manager, unless he was a fusion of Clough, Gutmann, Shankly, Herrera and Ferguson, could have done much better.

And now. Now West Ham are among the favourites to win the FA Cup, largely because most teams above them have been so calamitously bloody awful that they’ve managed to get themselves knocked out by assorted plucky sorts from the ‘Football League’, whatever that is.

1.12pm GMT

Good afternoon. Nick will be here shortly. Until then, here’s Stuart James chatting to Bristol City’s local hero, Joe Bryan:

After joining his hometown club at the age of eight and coming through their academy, Bryan has earned rave reviews with his displays at left wing-back as part of a resurgent City side who are promising to make 2014-15 a season to remember. Joint top of League One on points and only 90 minutes from reaching Wembley in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, City welcome West Ham to the building site that is Ashton Gate – the stadium is being redeveloped at a cost of £40m – in buoyant mood.

“People always say that it’s a sleeping giant. I think you can see the interest here, people realise we’re winning games,” Bryan says. “The thing is, I think the fact that we’re redeveloping the stadium this season is a bit of a hindrance. If all the stands were still there, I think they would be full every week because we’re winning. But it will be nice when the ground is done. It’s good to see development on and off the pitch. It’s a positive time.”

Disneyland measles outbreak leaves many anti-vaccination parents unmoved
2015-01-25 08:10:27 (1 hours ago) 

In some parts of California, resistance to vaccinations including the MMR shot is stronger than ever, despite cases of measles hitting five US states

For more than three years, Tanya Gottesburen refused to have her son Robert vaccinated. She didn’t like what she read about the ingredients in vaccines – things like mercury, aluminum and bovine serum that she found “really disturbing”. Many of her stay-at-home mum friends on the affluent Westside of Los Angeles felt the same way.

When Robert was an infant, Tanya didn’t think his immune system could handle what the doctors wanted to inject into him. She preferred to keep breast-feeding – until he was almost two and a half – and give him solid food that was organic and healthy.

Having a minority Labour government reliant on SNP votes, rather than a majority one, would lead to better decisions for Scotland, but also “more progressive decisions for the whole of the UK”, she said on Sunday.

Americans Support Mandatory Labeling of Food That Contains DNA
2015-01-25 08:31:12 (42 minutes ago) 
HughPickens.com writes Jennifer Abel writes at the LA times that according to a recent survey over 80% of Americans says they support "mandatory labels on foods containing DNA," roughly the same number that support the mandatory labeling of GMO foods "produced with genetic engineering." Ilya Somin, writing about the survey at the Washington Post, suggested that a mandatory label for foods containing DNA might sound like this: "WARNING: This product contains deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The Surgeon General has determined that DNA is linked to a variety of diseases in both animals and humans. In some configurations, it is a risk factor for cancer and heart disease. Pregnant women are at very high risk of passing on DNA to their children." The report echoes a well-known joke/prank wherein people discuss the dangers of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide" also known as hydrogen oxide and hydrogen hydroxide. Search online for information about dihydrogen monoxide, and you'll find a long list of scary-sounding and absolutely true warnings about it: the nuclear power industry uses enormous quantities of it every year. Dihydrogen monoxide is used in the production of many highly toxic pesticides, and chemical weapons banned by the Geneva Conventions. Dihydrogen monoxide is found in all tumors removed from cancer patients, and is guaranteed fatal to humans in large quantities and even small quantities can kill you, if it enters your respiratory system. In 2006, in Louisville, Kentucky, David Karem, executive director of the Waterfront Development Corporation, a public body that operates Waterfront Park, wished to deter bathers from using a large public fountain. "Counting on a lack of understanding about water's chemical makeup," he arranged for signs reading: "DANGER! – WATER CONTAINS HIGH LEVELS OF HYDROGEN – KEEP OUT" to be posted on the fountain at public expense.

Bristol City v West Ham United: FA Cup fourth round – live!

Latest updates as Bristol City seek to continue weekend of Cup shocksE-mail nick.miller.casual@theguardian.com | Tweet: @NickMiller79 Scoreboard: all today’s latest scores!

This season has been weird enough for West Ham. Weird watching them win a load of games, weird watching them do so in many cases with no little élan, weird watching Sam Allardyce take the very deserved praise coming his way with something approaching grace and humility. They’re seventh in the table and have managed to forge the old and new, to marry playing vaguely stylishly with playing Andy Carroll up top. In short, it’s going bloody well for a team who, if the mob had ruled at the back end of last season, would have gone into this season with a completely different manager, and it’s tricky to see how that new manager, unless he was a fusion of Clough, Gutmann, Shankly, Herrera and Ferguson, could have done much better.

And now. Now West Ham are among the favourites to win the FA Cup, largely because most teams above them have been so calamitously bloody awful that they’ve managed to get themselves knocked out by assorted plucky sorts from the ‘Football League’, whatever that is.

1.12pm GMT

Good afternoon. Nick will be here shortly. Until then, here’s Stuart James chatting to Bristol City’s local hero, Joe Bryan:

After joining his hometown club at the age of eight and coming through their academy, Bryan has earned rave reviews with his displays at left wing-back as part of a resurgent City side who are promising to make 2014-15 a season to remember. Joint top of League One on points and only 90 minutes from reaching Wembley in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, City welcome West Ham to the building site that is Ashton Gate – the stadium is being redeveloped at a cost of £40m – in buoyant mood.

“People always say that it’s a sleeping giant. I think you can see the interest here, people realise we’re winning games,” Bryan says. “The thing is, I think the fact that we’re redeveloping the stadium this season is a bit of a hindrance. If all the stands were still there, I think they would be full every week because we’re winning. But it will be nice when the ground is done. It’s good to see development on and off the pitch. It’s a positive time.”
