Loads of tabloid stuff this fortnight but little of substance. Yang et al. finally solve the riddle, why slim and fat women always go to the loo together. Shame the model breaks down for old men.

Being sensitised to current carbon-dioxide scams I was skeptical about Graciani et al.’s catalytic methanol production. Read the rest of this entry »

Offener Brief an Staatsministerin Prof. Monika Grütters

August 21st, 2014


Dieser Brief als PDF.
Den Hintergrund finden Sie in dieser Pressemeldung.

Sehr geehrte Frau Prof. Grütters,

Sie machen als Amtsträgerin einem einzelnen Anbieter in einem vielfältigen Markt schwere Vorwürfe und sagen konkret: „Wenn Titel aus Empfehlungslisten gestrichen und Lieferungen verzögert werden, um Rabattforderungen durchzusetzen, ist dies völlig unakzeptabel.

Wann, Frau Prof. Grütters, haben Sie das letzte Mal irgendeine Warengruppe bei irgendeinem Einzelhändler selbst gekauft? Read the rest of this entry »

Israel’s Left: Ludicrous, loathsome and lethal

August 12th, 2014

In reality, the Left has no genuine concern for humanitarian values. All it truly desires is dominance over the political system.

By Martin Sherman, JPOST

Against the wishes of much – indeed, according to one recent poll, over 85 % – of the public, the government has agreed to a cease-fire in Gaza. Read the rest of this entry »

Hamas, we don’t hate you

By Dan Gordon

You can find my German translation on my main website. [FAB]

Last week I had the great privilege of accompanying Major General (Ret) Avigdor Kahalani to an artillery battalion, somewhere in the war zone. General Kahalani is one of Israel’s greatest war heroes, a veteran of the Six Day War, The Yom Kippur War and the First Lebanon War. It is not an exaggeration to say that were it not for the actions of Avigdor Kahalani and the men under his command, the Syrians, who had already taken most of the Golan Heights, would have been able to push into Northern Israel, and the fate, not only of the war but, of the State of Israel Read the rest of this entry »

Sovacool’s stance is not surprising once you realize that he touts his own commercial interest here. His solution of solving technical problems by massive, state sponsored, and mandatory reeducation has been tried for over forty years. Not only was it voted down by overwhelming public opposition, Read the rest of this entry »

A Letter to PM Netanyahu

By Moshe Feiglin

To Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,

The failures of Operation Protective Edge were inherent from the outset, because:

According to Ochiai et al. ignoring all health warnings and spurning all Government mandated precautions may not be conducive to perfect health in the aftermath of a nuclear accident. Bet you knew that already. The more relevant part seems to be the generally good state of health in observed fauna in spite of their less than perfect blood values.

Antwort auf Muslime, nehmt euch an meiner Mutter ein Beispiel! von Leeor Engländer

Als überzeugter Anhänger von Moshe Feiglin und Zo Artzeinu kann ich weder Herrn Engländer noch seiner Mutter in allem ganz zustimmen. Ich bin aber überzeugt, wir könnten, ergäbe sich die Gelegenheit dazu, in beiderseitigem Respekt und ohne Verbalinjurien Read the rest of this entry »

Israel Can Win if Obama doesn’t save Hamas

July 25th, 2014

By Matthew Continetti

Slandered, despised, insulted, degraded, Israel is nonetheless winning its war against Hamas.

The number of rocket attacks launched by the terror group each day has been halved. The IDF is uprooting the underground tunnels Hamas uses to smuggle weapons, contraband, and terrorists in and out of the Gaza Strip. On Wednesday evening, Israel’s Channel Two newscast carried footage of Hamas terrorists surrendering to the IDF. Read the rest of this entry »

Teaching how to read used to be the job of primary and high schools and undergraduates were expected to pick up the subtleties of primary research reporting through learning on the job. Formal niceties used to be remarked on by the lecturer while discussing the content of papers. Looking at the current batch of first years, van Lacum et al. may well have a point. What they fail to say is that, given limited time and already full schedules, Read the rest of this entry »
