Beto’s Campaign Going Down The Crapper

From Breitbart, “Beto O’Rourke Campaign Claims Breitbart Reporter Ejected to Protect Black Students.”

The flailing 2020 presidential campaign of former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) claimed Wednesday that a staffer ejected Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Joel Pollak from a speech at Benedict College, a historically black college, to protect black students.

Oh, and speaking of “crappers”, here’s Beto’s latest ploy for relevance.

Making Kids Great Again??

As reported by the American College of Pediatricians, “Research on Disciplinary Spanking is Misleading.

 

In recent years, some medical organizations and many media outlets have claimed that disciplinary spanking causes emotional harm in children that predisposes them to aggressive behavior when they are older. Although parents sometimes misuse or over-use spanking, does science really show that ordinary spanking of persistently disobedient children causes irreparable harm? The answer may be found by examining the quality of the research behind this claim.

It turns out that most research against spanking uses methods so flawed that such studies would be rejected if they were being used to halt a medical procedure, such as chemotherapy for combating cancer.  The anti-spanking research suffers from three major fallacies or defects that invalidate its conclusions. These flaws are evident in a recent summary of research on spanking by Dr. Elizabeth Gershoff and her colleague, Dr. Andrew Grogan-Kaylor.1 This publication is an update to Dr. Gershoff’s previous meta-analysis that summarized decades of spanking research,2 and which is the source cited most often by anti-spanking proponents.3

Daily Darwin – Power FAILure

Darwin’s lesson for today, kiddies, is called “The Path of Least Resistance.” He notes what you will learn is, indeed, shocking. He begins.

Contrary to popular belief, electricity takes all paths available in inverse proportion to the impedance of the paths. The magnitude of the current flowing in a path depends on the path’s voltage and impedance. The lower the impedance (assuming voltage remains constant), the greater the current. Conversely, the higher the impedance (assuming voltage remains constant), the lower the current.

Electrons take all available paths, and one of those paths is your 1000-ohm body.
