According to the results of a survey of 2028 Internet users in the U.S. conducted by Morar Consulting, women, much more than men, see Internet privacy as something about which to be acutely concerned. The results show that men care about it, as well…just not to the same degree. The results were arrived at through a compilation of answers derived from questions that addressed the subject of Internet privacy in different ways. For example, on a question that asked how likely is it that the respondent would put sensitive, personal information on a social media profile, 78% of the women... Read more →


So AMC Theatres head Adam Aron revealed in an interview published on Thursday in Variety that the movie house chain was considering allowing audience members the opportunity to text during film showings; specifically, he said that his company was kicking around the idea of making “more texting friendly” some of their “specific auditoriums.” By Friday, the very next day, AMC made it clear that they were no longer entertaining the idea. It turns out that when news of what AMC was pondering became well and widely known, the Internet backlash against the idea was cacophonous, to say the least. The... Read more →


The Citadel, established in 1842 and steeped in a legacy that is unrivaled by practically any other American institution of higher learning, is giving serious consideration to taking a step that is as much a departure from the traditions of the military as it is a giant “cannonball” into the lake of political correctness. The same school that graduated a slew of Civil War generals, along with more modern-day military standouts like William Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces during the Vietnam War, and is famously (or infamously) known for its strictness even by the standard of military academies…is now giving...

In a particularly strict province of Indonesia, an elderly woman of the Christian faith was recently subject to the harsh punishment of caning for the offense of selling alcohol. Beyond the matter of the punishment itself, what makes this event so unusual…and, to many, so very ominous…is that the lashes were administered on the basis of sharia law, which governs the Indonesian province of Aceh where all of this took place. The woman, 60 years old, was whipped approximately 30 times with a rattan cane. There was a crowd of hundreds that had assembled to watch the meting out of... Read more →


Take Tim Kennedy’s “Train to Be Hard to Kill” Mantra to Heart

Tim Kennedy is currently a professional mixed martial arts fighter in the popular Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) system, but it is history of military service that has gone a long way to making him such a particularly noteworthy figure on the circuit. As a soldier, Kennedy has gone “all the way,” as they say, having completed Ranger School as an honor graduate, sniper school, as well as the highly-elite Special Forces Qualification Course, earning the Army Special Force’s unique mark of distinction, the Green Beret headpiece. Kennedy served in both Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom , and can... Read more →


In light of the intense acrimony that has characterized much of the discourse on the Republican side of the 2016 presidential election thus far, it is difficult to see how those feuds that have been extra-prickly could ever see even a measure of repair come to them. The name-calling, the vitriol expressed at such a personal level…makes it seems as though it would be impossible for some of these “relationships” of people who are supposed to be, at least generally, on the same team, to ever again become sincerely congenial. Given that, it was with more than a little surprise... Read more →


The 2016 New York State Republican Gala is this year honoring New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, but it is the listed “special guests” who are clearly the attraction at the sold-out event: Remaining Republican presidential contenders Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and Donald Trump will all be appearing at the Gala, and it is the presence of Trump, in particular, that is expected to bring out the largest and most vocal number of protesters. Trump’s chief menace at his most recent, high-profile rallies has come in the form of the radical progressive group MoveOn.org, an outfit that’s been very deliberate in... Read more →


An article over at Christian Today by Florence Taylor sheds light on a study sponsored by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, a study that reveals public school textbooks in Pakistan assume a decidedly adversarial posture toward Christians. The study, Teaching Intolerance in Pakistan: Religious Bias in Public School Textbooks, examined the school books and other elements of the curriculum, and found that Pakistani Christians are portrayed as “colonial oppressors,” among many other unfortunate characterizations. According to the study, the textbooks teach that "Christians learned tolerance and kind-heartedness from Muslims,” while Hindus, another minority religion in the country, are... Read more →


If life these days was not confusing enough, it appears that new laws are now necessary to address the issue of men and women going into each of their respective bathrooms and locker rooms. To be sure to clarify what is stake here, consider the recent incident that took place in a Seattle women's locker room. A man entered the facility and watched young girls changing their clothing. When he was confronted by the staff at the facility he stated that the law has changed and he had a right to be in the women's locker room. No, the police... Read more →

Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States, also served as the governor of New Jersey and spent roughly eight years as the president of Princeton University, but his record of service to his country, as well as to Princeton and the state in which it is located, did not prevent a recent, stark challenge to the continued memorialization of a Princeton school in his name by student activists who object to his record on issues of race. Princeton trustees recently announced that, despite the challenge, the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs would remain so named,... Read more →


Americans are learning that the reality of a new health threat is apparently much worse than officials earlier suggested: The mosquito-borne Zika virus, identified as the culprit in a growing number of babies born with birth defects in Latin America, is now a distinct threat in a majority of American states, and that Puerto Rico, in particular, could see upwards of hundreds of thousands of infections. Dr. Anne Schuchat of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently sounded the alarm, saying, in part, “Everything we look at with this virus seems to be a bit scarier than we...
