Protestors at Pageant - YouTube
So we finally got around to uploading video of the protestors at the Palmyra pageant. The Church blasts music throughout the parking lot to drown out the noise, but it doesn't do much. You can hear multiple trolls on loudspeakers proclaiming their doom and gloom nonsense. So much fun :)

Israel ground assault overwhelms south Gaza hospital - Yahoo News
"So far, the Palestinian death toll from 11 days of violence stands at more than 270, while two Israelis have also been killed, one soldier and one civilian. UN figures indicate that at least a third of the dead are children, and emotions in Gaza are running high. "The whole world is watching while the Palestinians are being slaughtered," Jubur said, his voice rising. "They are innocents, people sitting next to their homes, people sitting with their relatives," he added. "Where should these people go?""

"There is no safe place in Gaza right now. Bombs can land at any time, anywhere. A small metal shack with no electricity or running water on a jetty in the blazing seaside sun does not seem like the kind of place frequented by Hamas militants, the Israel Defense Forces’ intended targets. Children, maybe four feet tall, dressed in summer clothes, running from an explosion, don’t fit the description of Hamas fighters, either."

Understanding The Permanence Of Greater Israel « The Dish
This. Everyone read this. "Imagine for a second that Hamas had leveled a synagogue. Can you imagine what Israel would feel justified in doing as a response? Or imagine if a Jewish extended family of 18 had been massacred by Hamas, including children? Would we not be in a major international crisis? At some point the lightness with which we treat Palestinian suffering compared with Jewish suffering needs to be addressed as an urgent moral matter. The United States is committed to human rights, not rights scaled to one’s religious heritage or race."

Who Does Your College Think Its Peers Are? - Administration - The Chronicle of Higher Education
This is great. Universities reported which other universities they consider to be their peers. It ends up looking like a high school social network. 30 universities claim to be friends with Duke, but Duke reports 0 peer institutions. BYU claims to be friends with 52 other schools, but only 5 claim to be friends with it, including BYU-I (because sibling loyalty; but not BYU-H), Pepperdine, and 3 University of Phoenixes. They get stuck with the shady online institutions.

Iraq and the Sunk Cost Fallacy | IVN.us
"The argument that we should go back into Iraq to protect past sacrifices connects with the way that human beings think. We are lousy intuitive statisticians. We overvalue past losses, and we undervalue future risks. Both our wars and our gambling industries testify to our inability to think clearly about these issues. But we have to try. The best way to honor the sacrifices of the brave men and women who died in Iraq is to make sure that there aren't any more of them. And the best way to recoup the trillion dollars that we wasted in an unnecessary war is to spend the next trillion on something better."
