Submission + - Why Do We Let the Media Determine our Candidates?

Paladin144 writes: "I've written an article about the mainstream media's tendency to determine the course of our presidential elections by giving favorable coverage to certain "approved" candidates while denying coverage or recognition to other candidates.

Submission + - Scientists Shocked as Arctic Polar Route Revealed

Paladin144 writes: "A route unencumbered by perennial sea ice leading directly to the North Pole has been revealed by recent satellite pictures. European scientists indicated their shock as they noted a ship could sail from Europe's northern-most outpost directly to the pole, something that hasn't been possible during most of recorded human history. The rapid thawing of the perennial sea ice has political implications as the U.S., Canada, Russia and the EU jockey for control of the newly opened passages."
