The problem becomes when equity beyond opportunity is the focus. If unalterable human characteristics — like race, gender, or disability — are prized over actual relevant employment qualifications, the door is open for discrimination and mediocrity.
On Tuesday, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced the launch of its new Mission Equity effort:
“NASA is a 21st century agency with 22nd century goals.
To be successful, it’s critical that NASA takes a comprehensive approach
to address the challenges to equity we see today,” said NASA
Administrator Bill Nelson.
“The agency’s new Mission Equity is a bold and necessary challenge
for NASA to ensure our programs are accessible to all Americans and,
especially, those living in historically underserved communities across
the country. Because when NASA opens doors to talent previously left
untapped, the universe is the limit.”

Greek City Times explained that the Turkish group was enraged “because Ancestry.com correctly highlighted that many Turkish citizens are indeed mostly unrelated to Turkic peoples from Central Asia and are rather native Anatolian people that have been Turkified…”
The Turkish DNA Project, an online endeavor to track Turkish genetics, is enraged at the popular genealogy site Ancestry.com
and has called for it to be boycotted for stating an inconvenient
truth: many, and possibly most, modern Turks are the descendants of the
Greeks who once formed the overwhelming majority of the population of
the land that is now Turkey. In this as in so many other instances, the
truth hurts, but that doesn’t make it any less the truth.
Greek City Times reported that the Turkish DNA Project tweeted: “AncestryDNA
prioritizes to demonize the Turkish people and delegitimaze [sic] their
presence in Turkey rather than giving information about the genetic
structure of the relevant population.” The Turkish DNA Project called
upon “all Turks to boycott this company: Ancestry.”
After Greek City Times called attention to the tweet, the Turkish DNA Project took it down, but it still has up a retweet calling for a boycott of Ancestry.com, as well as a tweet fulminating with incandescent rage against Greek City Times’ Athens Bureau chief Paul Antopoulos, whom it calls a “white supremacist.” Very original line of attack you got there, guys.

Kentucky senator opposes borrowing money from China to fund ‘ridiculous’ research
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., arrived on the Senate
floor Friday morning accompanied by a stack of colorful poster boards
to rail against “ridiculous” taxpayer-funded research at the National
Science Foundation and other federal agencies.
a fiscal conservative, delivered a 32-minute speech Friday morning to
oppose the bipartisan Endless Frontier Act that would expand science and
technology research that proponents say will help the U.S. counter
China. Paul warned of the $28 trillion national debt and said the U.S.
should be reining in wasteful spending and not borrowing more money from
China to fund such legislation.
“I don’t think this bill makes us stronger. In fact, I think the Chinese sit back … and laugh at America thinking we’re going to be stronger by borrowing more money from China,” Paul said. “So I just don’t think it makes us any stronger at all. I think it makes us weaker. It would be one thing if it weren’t being so horribly wasted.”

Society for American Archaeology refuses to publish talk after Indigenous archaeologists call it racist and white supremacist
A group representing over 7,000 archaeologists has refused to post a
video of a lecture delivered at its annual meeting earlier this month
after complaints the topic was too racially charged.
The Society for American Archaeology meeting, held between April 15
and 17, featured a pre-recorded lecture by San Jose State anthropology
professor Elizabeth Weiss and attorney and anthropologist James Springer
that discussed the role of creationism in archaeology.
On Wednesday, the SAA released a statement apologizing to ” those who were harmed by the inclusion of the presentation.”
“After careful review of the recording, the SAA board finds the presentation does not align with SAA’s values, and so has chosen to not re-post it at this time,” it read.
Lockdowns, masks, and other authoritarian measures do little or nothing to promote health. Instead, they erode freedom and create their own health problems. Those who know the truth must make Joe Biden and other authoritarians listen to the true science.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has not been officially declared
the winner of the 2020 presidential election, but that has not stopped
him from forming a coronavirus task force. The task force is composed of
supporters of increased government control.
idea Biden and his task force are considering is a four to six weeks
nationwide lockdown. However, supporting a nationwide lockdown would
violate Biden’s campaign pledge to “listen to the science.” The evidence
regarding lockdowns is so overwhelming that even the World Health
Organization (WHO) has been forced to admit the truth: lockdowns do more
harm than good.
Lockdowns result in more instances of depression, suicide, domestic violence, and alcohol and drug abuse. Lockdowns also cause people to not go to hospitals or doctors’ offices, leading to people dying because they failed to obtain medical assistance in a timely manner.

“I want to start a diet and lose some weight!”… This is a very common sentence that we hear all the time! But have you ever wondered how your weight would change on another planet? For example, did you know that your weight on the Moon would be only… one sixth of your weight on the Earth? And what about other planets?
