A physicist for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, was fired apparently because he dares to think there are intrinsic differences between the human sexes.
CERN fired a physicist for questioning how sexist his field really is.
His slides are rough and lacking context, but none of the articles I’ve seen attacking him actually address his points… déjà vuhttps://t.co/wJkJ1nML7R

As Breitbart News reported:
CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, has suspended a physicist for giving a “highly offensive” talk about gender differences, which also questioned whether there was as much discrimination against women in the industry as frequently claimed, and highlighted discrimination against men.
Professor Alessandro Strumia gave the talk at a CERN workshop where, according to the Independent, “He then proceeded to present a talk about ‘fundamental theory and gender.’”
“Professor Strumia used a slideshow to illustrate the ‘discrimination’ that men have faced, with examples including female Stem students receiving free or cheaper university fees in Italy,” reported the Independent. “He also explained how he believed that he should have been hired by the National Institute of Nuclear Physics over Anna Ceresole, the professor who was eventually chosen for the position that he’d applied for, as he had more citations than her.”
The talk was not well received, and Strumia was promptly “suspended” from CERN, which described the presentation as “highly offensive.”
“From 26 to 28 September, CERN hosted the first workshop on High Energy Theory and Gender focusing on recent developments in theoretical high-energy physics and cosmology, and discussed issues of gender and equal opportunities in the field,” CERN declared in a statement. “It is unfortunate that one of the 38 presentations, by a scientist from one of the collaborating universities, risks overshadowing the important message and achievements of the event.”
“CERN, like many members of the community, considers that the presentation, with its attacks on individuals, was unacceptable in any professional context and was contrary to the CERN Code of Conduct. It, therefore, decided to remove the slides from the online repository,” the organization expressed, adding, “On Monday, 1 October, CERN suspended the scientist from any activity at CERN with immediate effect, pending investigation into last week’s event.”
Apparently the feminists couldn’t take it and a firestorm was soon whipped up against the scientist.
Interesting when an organization that claims to be all about science wants to deny that there are basic and important differences between the sexes, isn’t it?
Still, one can see just how this guy got himself in trouble with leftists for presenting the argument he presented. After all, liberals don’t ever want to be confronted with things that they find politically incorrect — even when there is an argument and examples backing it up.
So, instead of debating this guy, the liberal establishment just moved to eliminate him. Looks like the left is about to destroy the career of another man.

Leftist Scientists Now Looking to Ban ‘Bigoted’ Names of Bugs… No Really
The woke left has now come for our “bigoted” bugs, folks. That’s right, our bugs are racists, bigots, and sexists, don’t you know?
The woke left has now come for our “bigoted” bugs, folks. That’s right, our bugs are racists, bigots, and sexists, don’t you know?
Leftist entomologists are now working to eliminate an untold number of scientific names that have been assigned to various insects because the names are now deemed “problematic.”
According to Breitbart News, the “slavemaker ant,” “rape bug,” the “oriental rat flea,” and “large faggot worm,” are just a few of the insects that are featured on the list.
Amusingly, the “large faggot worm” is named not because he likes worms of the same sex, but because he decorates his cocoon with bits of twigs (and in the old days, a twig was called a faggot).
Breitbart News adds:
The “Immigrant Acacia Weevil,” a pest bug that is sometimes a target of bug exterminators, was also included on the list. The scientists behind the list note that they are “not really comfortable exterminating something with the word ‘immigrant’ in the name.”
“There is no room for racism in science,” University of Arizona researcher Earyn McGee said during an interview with the College Fix.
“If you must acknowledge them, you can say something like ‘X person discovered X thing however it is important to note they also did this bigoted thing and that type of behavior is unacceptable for scientists,’” McGee said.
This McGee seems like a bit of a dunce, huh?

McGee went on to attack scientists of the past because they were obviously evil, white, racists.
“They should ask themselves how did those people get into a position to make those contributions in the first place. Whose contributions have been historically ignored to allow this to happen? What oppressive structures allow this?” she said.

Rare, Powerful Idaho Earthquake Raises Alarms About ‘Big One’ as Yellowstone ‘Pulses’
If it’s not one thing, it’s another.
As if we don’t already have enough to worry about, now there are whispers of a possible earthquake-related cataclysm on the horizon.
Nearly the entirety of the world is in the midst of a lockdown the likes of which we’ve never seen in our modern era. Sure, there was the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, but few of us alive today remember much about that, and we are living in an entirely different world than that of a century ago.
In the USA alone, there is the possibility of 100,000 deaths – nearly twice as many American casualties as we suffered during the two decades of the Vietnam War.
Now, in the middle of all of this, we have some unusual seismic activity out west to worry about.
A preliminary magnitude 6.5 earthquake rattled Idaho on Tuesday with shaking felt across the region, including Washington state, Utah, Nevada and Canada.
Tuesday’s quake was the strongest in the state since the 1983 Borah Peak earthquake and reportedly killed two people. This earthquake was so strong that the eruptions of Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park were noticeably longer.
It is that last bit about Yellowstone that has some folks worried.
An area the size of Chicago in Yellowstone National Park has been inflating and deflating by several inches over the past decade
The Norris Geyser Basin, the oldest, hottest and most dynamic thermal area in the park, was observed to rise 5.9 inches each year from 2013 to 2015 – an unusual event that left researchers baffled.
Now, using satellite radar and GPS data, experts have determined the ground deformation was caused by magma intrusions trapped below the basin’s surface.
As magma made its way to the surface, the pressure pushed rocks above it up and created an erratic pulsating effect, according to National Geographic.
The Yellowstone Caldera has been fodder for conspiracy theorists and doomsday prophets for years, with many believing that the entire region could one day erupt violently, in what would trigger a mass extinction event here on planet earth.
We Told You So

Soros Wants Zuckerberg Removed from Facebook for ‘Helping’ Trump Reelection Efforts
Soros is apparently ignoring the years of conservative censorship that the platform has engaged in.
There are some folks who are just far too removed from reality to make sense of what they are saying. Liberal billionaire George Soros may very well fit into that category.
Soros has an immense amount of wealth, that’s for certain. He’s not like you or I in that regard. Instead, the Hungarian leftist lives in the ivory towers of the world, as part of the infamous 1%.
This distance between Soros and the rest of humanity was on full display this week.
The Daily Mail reports that leftist billionaire George Soros has called for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg to be removed from their positions at the company as he believes they are “helping Trump get re-elected” by refusing to fact check political ads.
In a letter to the Financial Times, Soros accused Zuckerberg and Sandberg of having a “mutual assistance agreement” with Trump that would “help him get re-elected.” Soros made similars claims in an op-ed published in the New York Times earlir this month titled “George Soros: Mark Zuckerberg Should Not Be in Control of Facebook.” Soros discussed the social media giant Facebook and stated that he doesn’t believe the company’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg — who controls 53 percent of voting shares of Facebook — should be in charge of the platform.
What’s missing from Soros’ comment is context, however.
Facebook has been working diligently over the course of the last several years to subvert conservative viewpoints, both by employing algorithmic adjudicators and human censors alike. There is no conspiracy to have Trump reelected, not by a long shot, but Soros is far too removed from the regular world to understand this.
Parody Video of Pelosi Tearing SOTU Speech Stays Online Despite Democratic Protests
Facebook doesn’t care about your feelings, and that has irked the Democrats to no end.
Tuesday night’s State of The Union address was one for the history books, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempting to steal the spotlight from President Trump at the event’s conclusion.
With the rip heard ’round the world, Pelosi fomented her place in the pantheon of the progressive “resistance”, tearing a gifted copy of the President’s address in half while the rest of the chamber politely applauded the achievements outlined by Trump in the speech. The moment immediately went viral, with predictably divided opinions as to how the gesture fits into the national narrative.
Many saw the act as a show of disrespect for those whom the President lauded during the State of The Union address itself, including a member of the fabled Tuskegee Airmen.
Now, an edited video that made it appear as though the ripping stunt was in direct relation to the celebration of the brave service member is making the rounds online, and the left is helpless to stop its spread.
Within hours, the speaker’s office was demanding both social media companies remove the video, arguing it was unfair to Pelosi, who actually stood and applauded the airman during the speech.
Both Facebook and Twitter decided against removing the Trump video, although the companies cited different reasons for their decisions.
The dispute became public Friday when Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, posted a link to a criticism of the video Friday afternoon, writing “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests.”
The argument turned fierce in a hurry.
Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman, replied to Hammill on Twitter: “Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?”
Hammill fired back: “What planet are you living on? This is deceptively altered. Take it down.”
Critics of Facebook have repeatedly chastised the platform for allowing misleading content, which often remains on the site for the purpose of financially capitalizing from the controversy that it creates.
Teen Shocks NASA by Finding New Planet 3 Days Into Internship
A New York high school student shocked the scientific establishment by identifying a new planet only three days into his internship.
A New York high school student shocked the scientific establishment by identifying a never before seen planet only three days into his internship.
Wolf Cukier, 17, was interning at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland last year when he uncovered what became known as TOI 1338 b — a planet orbiting two stars instead of one, Yahoo News reports.
The teen caught the telltale signs of a planet while reviewing data captured by the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), NASA said.
“I was looking through the data for everything the volunteers had flagged as an eclipsing binary, a system where two stars circle around each other and from our view eclipse each other every orbit,” Cukier said. “About three days into my internship, I saw a signal from a system called TOI 1338.”
“At first, I thought it was a stellar eclipse, but the timing was wrong. It turned out to be a planet,” he added.
The teen chalked up some scientific firsts with his identification:
TOI 1338 b is the first circumbinary planet discovered by TESS, according to NASA. The planet is around 6.9 times larger than Earth — nearly the size of Saturn — and lies in a system 1,300 light-years away in the constellation of Pictor.
The world orbits the two stars every 95 days, the agency said. One star is about 10 percent bigger than our sun, while the other is a cooler and dimmer M dwarf that is only a third of our sun’s mass.
Cukier likened his discovery to the Star Wars planet, Tatooine.
“I discovered a planet, which has two stars that orbit around. So, if you think to Luke’s homeworld, Tatooine, from Star Wars, it’s like that. Every sunset, there’s going to be two stars setting,” Cukier said.
The high schooler joked that the rest of his internship didn’t live up to its first 72 hours.
“Funny thing is, I didn’t find anything else for the rest of the internship, even though I found one on like day three,” he said.
