YouTubes Conspiracy Theory Crackdown Has One Big Winner: Fox News

Previously, users who watched videos about hoaxes such as QAnon or Pizzagate could easily be pulled into an echo chamber of disinformation by YouTube’s autoplay function, which queued up one conspiracy theory video after another. But now, those who seek out such content will often find a lineup of Fox News videos in lieu of more conspiracies. YouTube Conspiracy theorists are angry that recommendations for Fox News segments are appearing on their YouTube videos. “I’m sick of it!” the host of a massive QAnon channel huffed in a July video. “Six months ago, when you’d look at [the recommended videos on my content], there’d be all my videos. You’d watch one of my videos, then you could watch three or …

The Keto Diet Might Be Bad For Your Heart, A New Study Finds Betches

In a recent turn of events, science has found diets that favor the “cavemen” way of eating might not be the best health bet. What a shame, considering the Paleo and its stricter high-fat cousin, the Ketogenic diet, have both quickly risen the ranks to become two of today’s trendiest diets. So then I, of course, did further research. Roseburia and Bifidobacteria are key bacteria that impact overall health of the host (us). In obese individuals, the levels of Bifidobacteria are reduced and disrupted levels of gut bacteria could be a factor in obesity. But I think the key takeaway from this article is less about demonizing the Paleo diet (so anyone on Paleo and Keto, don’t come at me …

SE Cupp: Our gun laws make it too damn easy for haters to kill

(CNN)It’s been one week since 31 people were killed in mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. It’s worth pointing out that those two shootings followed another, one week earlier, in Gilroy, California, where three people, including a 6-year-old and a 13-year-old, were killed by an angry guy with a gun. But I am no longer a NRA member. Being right no longer feels righteous. Because in the wake of more mass shootings, acts of senseless violence that sent innocent people running for their lives, leaving children orphaned and loved ones dead on the ground, I know we must do something about guns. We have a problem in this country — and the problem is hate. One of …

Car Bomb Kills 3 U.N. Staff Outside Mall In Libya

Health officials said the blast took place outside Arkan Mall in the Hawari neighborhood, where people were gathering for shopping a day before the Eid al-Adha holiday begins. The Benghazi municipal council said the attack targeted a convoy for the U.N. Support Mission in Libya. Stéphane Dujarric, a spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, said in a statement that three U.N. workers were among the wounded. He also said the secretary-general urged “all parties to respect the humanitarian truce during Eid al Adha and return to the negotiating table to pursue the peaceful future the people of Libya deserve.” “This attack will not discourage us, nor will it prevent us from carrying on with our duties to bring about peace, …

Tired Of People Claiming That Gays Never Existed Until Now, Person Collects 31 Pics As Proof That They Did

Same-sex unions have been recorded all around the world. Throughout the centuries, they have existed in many forms, ranging from informal, unsanctioned relationships to highly ritualized unions. And even though the Old Testament prohibited homosexual relations (Lev. 18:22, 20:13), and the Jewish sages provide the reason for this as being that the Hebrews were warned not to follow the acts of the land of Egypt or the acts of the land of Canaan, same-sex marital practices and rituals were recognized in Mesopotamia. #3 Later on, the increasingly influential Christianity promoted marriage mainly for procreative purposes. Not teachings of the Bible (as well as Talmud and Torah), were understood as prohibiting the practices as contrary to nature and the will of the Creator, and a moral shortcoming.  …

Life-Threatening Experiences Lead To Long-Lasting Changes In Animals Brains

Predators can inspire fear that causes long-lasting changes to the brains and behaviors of wild animals, helping them remember and avoid such life-threatening events in the future.  Researchers describe this as an “animal model” of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that suggests the condition may not be a maladaptive dysfunction, but rather a phenomenon that occurs in nature to enhance survival against perceived threats. Retaining a powerful and long-term memory of a life-threatening encounter is “clearly evolutionarily beneficial” if it helps an individual avoid such events in the future, note the researchers. “These results have important implications for biomedical researchers, mental health clinicians, and ecologists,” said study author Liana Zanette in a statement. “Our findings support both the notion that PTSD is not …
