    Trump has threatened to toss Jim Acosta from the press conference room or stop the news conference if Jim Acosta "misbehaves." Will this threat lead to Jim Acosta pushing the envelope, essentially sacrificing himself to make Trump look bad? See: https://thehill.com/homenews/administrat...

  • Why isn't "hectant" a word?

    The term "quadrant" is useful for two dimensional space, but is inadequate for three dimensions. Shouldn't the term "hectant" be used instead? Unfortunately, as of now, it's not a word!

  • Suppose space is split up into six sides (see details)?

    Proxima Centauri is at the center of side 1. All six sides are equal in dimensions. Suppose six spaceships are launched from Earth. Each spaceship goes to the nearest star system on its side. Which of the six star systems is the farthest from Earth? Would this be a logical way for a species to expand from its home planet?

"Cook County voters have not rejected a judge’s retention bid since 1990, election officials confirmed." https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/loca... Is this beginning of a new trend of greater civic engagement? The judicial branch traditionally receives less scrutiny than the other branches of government. Is this beginning to change? This election cycle, I noticed more coverage on judicial elections. Does the media deserve credit for voters becoming more critical of judges?

At the current rate, the Taylor oil spill will be even worse. What is deemed an acceptable risk? Hurricanes aren't going away. Disasters like this will only continue. More and more off shore oil rigs are built every year. Thus, the risk of ecological disasters is only increasing. How many more hurricanes will it take before offshore drilling is banned completely? Trump recently opened up offshore drilling in the Atlantic. The Atlantic has twice as many hurricanes as the gulf of Mexico. When will this madness end?
