two of those years gave him full run of Congress
Nope, unless by "years" you mean "months". Actually it wasn't even a full 2 months.
Ted Kennedy represented Massachusetts in the Senate, so when he died the then-governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney, appointed a Republican to replace Kennedy and the Democrats lost their supermajority.
Kennedy had been suffering with a brain tumor for more than a year, and towards the end during that period of supermajority he was not well enough to attend most Senate sessions and only voted a few times.
The Discovery writer got confused and thought the replacement pump check for leaks post-swap was referring to the original leaking pump pre-swap. No doubt they'll fix it any second now....
I'm not an expert on Islam by any means, but I'm fairly sure that if you are born to a Muslim father, then Islam considers you to be a Muslim by birth. Assuming that that is correct, Barack Obama, Sr. was Muslim by birth, as is President Obama.
In the United States of America we have this thing called Freedom of Religion, which means Mr. Obama can be whatever religion he chooses to be. Nobody gets to choose it for him.
Drug development takes about a decade.
The vitamin supplement market is unregulated so I'm sure there will be "GDF-11" supplements on the market in less than a year. This is just too good to pass up.
Will it work? Your guess is as good as mine.
You could, though, throw a piece of plastic packaging material out the airlock. I can think of no more appropriate way to declare 'humans are here, this is our planet now.'
That's so 50 years ago.

Man's first act on the moon was to throw trash on it - Armstrong discarded a duffle bag with some junk in it.
Wait a minute, is there something I've been missing out on here? Should you take atmospheric tests for CO2 from just one spot, a volcanic spot?
Mauna Loa was originally chosen as a monitoring site because, located far from any continent, the air sampled is a good average for the central Pacific. Being high, it is above the inversion layer where most of the local effects are present.
Volcanoes don't emit just CO2, they also emit other detectable gasses which can then be used to determine if the volcano is contaminating the measurements:
The contamination from local volcanic sources is sometimes detected at the observatory, and is then removed from the background data.
... Van Riper actually rigged the exercise himself, by materializing forces out of thin air to make attacks, then claimed he was being unfairly bashed by the higher ups because he hadnt followed the script.
Also what I understand from reading some more level headed articles on the matter, in many ways the exercise wasnt even meant to be a real simulation of war. Instead it was a series of experiments each designed to test a specific new concept or tactic of combination thereof. In some cases tests were being conducted for the purpose of creating better simulations in future exercises. Two forces didnt simple stand up and slug it out, so declaring a winner and loser isnt even relevant.
There was also this post:
Anybody can "achieve success" in an exercise by arbitrarily creating forces that were not on the original manifest, simply refusing to accept that assets had been destroyed and continuing to use them and by reading through the scenario rules and manifests and saying "aha It doesn't say I can't do thus and so".
It's rather like playing a chess game in which one player ignores any of his pieces taken by his opponent, assumes all of his own pieces are queens and then adds extra pieces every time he feels like it. Then stands up, beats his chest and claims loudly that's he's won.
The problem is that doing all that means the exercise is worthless, nobody learns anything of value from it and the time and resources invested in that exercise are wasted. The only thing Van Riper's actions achieved was to boost his own ego and already excessive self-esteem. In terms of military planning and threat analysis, his contributions were worth far less than nothing.
There appears to be a lot less there than you think.
So when 2016 rolls around with no significant change to the ice caps can we cut this stupid "ice caps r gunna melt" meme?
No? I didn't think so.
You must be trolling because It's hard for a rational person to look at this chart and think there will be "no change" when 2016 rolls around. (Hit "download attachment" to see the chart).
In 1979 the minimum was over 16,000 cubic kilometers of Arctic ice. In 2005 the minimum was 9,000 cubic kilometers. Last year it was just above 3,000. The best curve fit of the data (seen on the chart) shows the Arctic will probably be ice-free by 2016.
Please give specific examples to demonstrate reactionary bias in Fox News' reporting.
There are way too many to list in a Slashdot post so you can start with these:
In fact, Fox has admitted to lying in Federal Appellate Court:
"repeat offenders will not be pursued as they are not the kind of people we can reach"
Later during the interview, when asked what happens if you get Strike 7, 8 or 9, Lesser said, "Once they've been mitigated, they've received several alerts, we're just not going to send them any more alerts. Because they are not the kind of customer that we're going to reach with this program."
I think "riding it out" as recommended in the blog is a Bad Idea. To me, the "with this program" caveat implies they have other plans for people who ignore them, probably involving the courts. By time you rack up six strikes they will have lots of evidence of infringement, and plenty of evidence that you ignored their warnings. Defending yourself in court against that kind of evidence is hard (read expensive).
And that is the case in climate studies, thermometers are frequently placed in locations that introduce errors, so the data has to be adjusted; the locations are not spatially uniform so the data has gridded; and on top of all that, the thermometers recorded Tmin and Tmax so historically the data point, Tave was the midpoint between Tmin and Tmax. The reality is any real direct measurements is very remote to climatology.
