US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s “experience” as secretary of state is a recipe for disaster and her poor judgment outweighs any experience, an American political analyst and activist says. Myles Hoenig, a Green Party candidate for Congress, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Thursday after President Barack Obama strongly endorsed […]

A flaming fragment of space junk from China's newest satellite launcher blazed through Earth's atmosphere over the Western United States late Wednesday.
Darting across the skies of California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho and Colorado, the object disintegrated into numerous chunks before disappearing. The relatively slow speed of the fireball — it took nearly a minute to cross the sky — ruled out a natural origin, experts said.
The video above was captured by Matt Holt in Utah County, Utah.

Wikileaks' Friday leak of nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails reveals many nefarious activities. In light of new evidence the DNC intentionally sabotaged Bernie Sanders while DNC staffers mocked him, Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party continue to be hit with embarrassing revelations.
One of the most damning findings of the leak is the fact Clinton and the DNC have worked closely with, manipulated, and bullied media outlets.
One email revealed Politico reporter Ken Vogel sent an article discussing the DNC to the DNC before he sent it to his editors. Vogel attached his story in an email titled, "per agreement... any thoughts appreciated," sent April 30, 2016, to Mark Paustenbach, Deputy Communications Director for the Democratic National Committee.

The U.S. State Department has expressed concerns about what Russia is calling a "large-scale humanitarian operation" in Syria, saying Moscow's announcement appears to be a demand for the surrender of militant groups and the forced evacuation of civilians from the besieged city of Aleppo.
Comment: That's exactly what it is (almost, no one is forcing the civilians to leave - it's their choice). The U.S. State Department has totally lost the plot. They think the terrorists in Aleppo should stay armed, and that the civilians should be caught in the crossfire. Psychopaths pretending to be humanitarian. Meanwhile, the Russians and Syrians actually do it.
At the United Nations, U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power said in a tweet that she was given a copy of a "chilling letter" that was being distributed to civilians who are trapped in opposition-held parts of eastern Aleppo.
Comment: Chilling? Seriously? Apparently Ms. Power can't help but shudder whenever she finds out her beloved terrorists are about to be destroyed, and innocent people saved. Terrifying, truly!
Power said the letter "warns Syrians to leave eastern Aleppo and entrust their lives to a government that has bombed and starved them."
Comment: BS. You're a liar, Samantha, plain and simple.
Meanwhile, the United Nation's humanitarian-aid chief, Stephen O'Brien, warned on July 28 that the so-called "humanitarian corridors" proposed by Russia to help Syrians leave Aleppo must be used voluntarily and that their protection must be guaranteed.
Comment: RFE/RL's anti-Russian bias is so strong and so obvious, it emits an odor that travels digitally. They just can't bring themselves to even admit that Syrians and Russians would open an actual humanitarian corridor. Guess that's because it's something propagandists like RFE/RL would never themselves do. Projection much?!

Virtually everyone has forgetful moments, but how do you know if your memory lapses are the normal day-to-day variety or a sign of something more serious like dementia? It's a common concern, especially with increasing age.
Among Americans, the notion of losing mental capacity evokes twice as much fear as losing physical ability, and 60 percent of U.S. adults say they are very or somewhat worried about memory loss.1
On a bright note, most memory blips are nothing to panic over. As you get older, your brain's information-processing speed may decline, which means it may take you longer to recall who wrote the book you're reading or the name of your childhood playmate.
The word is on the tip of your tongue, but even if you can't recall it you're able to restructure your thoughts to get your message across. This is quite normal, as are so-called "senior moments," or as neuroscientists call them "maladaptive brain activity changes."
Examples include sending an email to the wrong person or forgetting about an appointment.
These occur because your brain perceives many of your daily tasks as patterns and may revert to its default mode network (DMN), the part of your brain responsible for your inward-focused thinking, such as daydreaming, during this time.
In short, your brain takes a mini time out when you actually need its focused attention, causing a minor, but completely normal, lapse in memory.
Memory Loss: When to Worry
If changes in your memory or thinking skills are severe enough to be noticed by your friends and family you could be facing mild cognitive impairment (MCI). MCI is a slight decline in cognitive abilities that increases your risk of developing more serious dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.
If your mental changes are so significant that they're interfering with your ability to function or live independently, it could be dementia. For instance, it's normal to have trouble finding the right word on occasion, but if you forget words frequently and repeat phrases and stories during a conversation, there could be a problem.

Neither tactical genius nor exceptional valor is necessary to bring about a bloodless end to a standoff involving a 107-year-old man armed with a handgun and surrounded by police officers inside an otherwise vacant house. Patience, discipline, and familiarity with the art of de-escalation would be sufficient for that purpose. But that approach doesn't win official commendations, at least in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
Members of the Pine Bluff PD's SWAT team were awarded "lifesaving medal of valor" awards following a September 7, 2013 standoff that ended with 107-year-old Monroe Isadore dying in a torrential outburst of gunfire. Let it not be said that the department is incapable of discretion. The awards were done with so little fanfare that the public - including Isadore's son and daughter - wasn't aware of them until Pine Bluff alderwomen Thelma Walker introduced a resolution on July 5 to rescind the commendations.
"It was shocking when I found out about it," Tyrone Isadore told the local ABC affiliate.
"I looked up 'valor,' and I'm like, 'No, that doesn't fit to what they did to my dad," added Isadore's daughter, Paula Aguilar.
