I think its simpler that the author claims.

Republicans hate liberals more than they hate black people. The entire platform of the republican party is "owning the libs". The fact that walker is stupid, pliable, and susceptible to conspiracy theories is just the cherry on top, they would have voted for a mushroom if it meant beating Warnock.

The author exaggerates republican support for walker stating:

Yet the allegations that Walker serially abused women, traumatized his son Christian (who has openly criticized his father’s fitness for public office), engaged in extramarital affairs and pressured women into abortions did not prevent just over 48% of Georgians from supporting him.


This is factually untrue, Georgia by my estimation has in the neighborhood of 8.2 million eligible voters, and in the runoff 3.5 million people voted, so only 43% voted, slightly less than half of them voted for Walker, so maybe it's not as dire as he makes it sound. Democrats still have turnout issues that need to be fixed.

One that prevents Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

And restrictions on the development of cruise missles.

Israel has always been a bystander to the international community's efforts to rein in Iran's nuclear program. The IAEA of the UN has been trying and often failing at inspections and enforcing UN resolutions about Iran's nuclear program. They have been in violation of UNSC resolutions for decades, including the JCPOA.

Israel's leaders view Iran and it's nuclear aspirations as a true existential threat. They tend to respond militarily to threats like that.

Ice Cream Is Better for You Than a Multigrain Bagel, New Study Suggests

A new study from Tufts University in Massachusetts suggests that ice cream is a healthier choice than a multigrain bagel and other foods like saltine crackers.

In the research, experts at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts developed a "Food Compass" to rank any type of food from 1 to 100 based on nutrition; the higher the number, the healthier the food.

When comparing foods, the study gave an ice cream cone with nuts and chocolate ice cream a 37, while a multigrain bagel with raisins received a 19 and saltine crackers a 7.

This kid understands that it's just a game.

I'm sure he's as competitive as the rest, but it's refreshing to see this kind of sportsmanship from kids.

How a Phoenix record store owner set the audiophile world on fire

Mike Esposito still won’t say who gave him the tip about the records. But on July 14, he went public with an explosive claim.

In a sometimes halting video posted to the YouTube channel of his Phoenix record shop, the ‘In’ Groove, Esposito said that “pretty reliable sources” told him that MoFi (Mobile Fidelity), the Sebastopol, Calif., company that has prided itself on using original master tapes for its pricey reissues, had actually been using digital files in its production chain. In the world of audiophiles — where provenance is everything and the quest is to get as close to the sound of an album’s original recording as possible — digital is considered almost unholy. And using digital while claiming not to is the gravest sin a manufacturer can commit.

There was immediate pushback to Esposito’s video, including from some of the bigger names in the passionate audio community.

Shane Buettner, owner of Intervention Records, another company in the reissue business, defended MoFi on the popular message board moderated by mastering engineer Steve Hoffman. He remembered running into one of the company’s engineers at a recording studio working with a master tape. “I know their process and it’s legit,” he wrote. Michael Fremer, the dean of audiophile writing, was less measured. He slammed Esposito for irresponsibly spreading rumors and said his own unnamed source told him the record store owner was wrong. “Will speculative click bait YouTube videos claiming otherwise be taken down after reading this?” he tweeted.

But at MoFi’s headquarters in Sebastopol, John Wood knew the truth. The company’s executive vice president of product development felt crushed as he watched Esposito’s video. He has worked at the company for more than 26 years and, like most of his colleagues, championed its much lauded direct-from-master chain. Wood could hear the disappointment as Esposito, while delivering his report, also said that some of MoFi’s albums were among his favorites. So Wood picked up the phone, called Esposito and suggested he fly to California for a tour. It’s an invite he would later regret.

The "chemical imbalance" theory never had empirical support.

Most clinicians have known this for decades, but succumbed to the medicalization of mental illness because of money.

About 99% of infected people are men.

We report 528 infections diagnosed between April 27 and June 24, 2022, at 43 sites in 16 countries. Overall, 98% of the persons with infection were gay or bisexual men, 75% were White, and 41% had human immunodeficiency virus infection; the median age was 38 years.
