Now, a new technology based upon the amazing properties of graphene to convert light to electricity is showing signs of surpassing silicon as the most efficient path toward potential free energy. And even if it comes up short of that lofty goal, it still might revolutionize computing and electronics.
Let me show you why the plunder of Cyprus is probably one of the most
brilliant acts of wholesale theft the world has ever known, why the
stolen treasure may be thousands of times greater than has been
suggested, and why the names of the victims, and the full value of the
loot, will remain a mystery forever.
In the days of wooden ships and iron men, colonial empires pillaged
entire populations. At sea, independent traders, merchantmen, privateers
and pirates (broadly, those who operated without paying tribute to to
one crown or another) were masters at avoiding the powerful warships of
unfriendly nations. Of great importance in this effort was knowing which
flag to fly, when, in order to avoid capture.

Jason Kissner recently questioned President Obama’s whereabouts in spring 1982, and also discussed in passing some of the courses Obama took while at Columbia. In response, I would like to try my hand at reconstructing the Columbia part of Obama’s college transcript based on the published record and my own knowledge of Columbia’s requirements as an ’84 graduate of the college. This reconstruction may be of interest to those who are curious about this part of Obama’s undergraduate education, and it may also shed light on where Obama must have been in spring 1982.
Columbia College is well known for its rigorous core curriculum. Students must not only study masterpieces of literature, philosophy, music, and art, but also take courses in science, a foreign language, and even physical education. These requirements add up to a total of 48 credit hours. Based on a typical student load of 16 credit hours per semester, a student would need to spend three semesters taking nothing but core courses in order to complete the requirement. (In practice, students typically take most of these courses in the first two years of study, perhaps getting to a few of them over the course of the next two years.) As will be seen below, as a transfer student with only two years to complete the core requirements, most of Obama’s coursework must have been devoted to taking courses in the core.
The original post continues with calculation of Obama’s likely credits..
Have you seen the headline from the Drudge Report? Congressman Steve Stockman just threatened to file Articles Of Impeachment against Barack Hussein Obama if he institutes gun control measures via an executive order, and I can tell you with a 100% certainty that the Republican establishment – yes, I said the Republican establishment – is going to hit Congressman Stockman HARD for having the courage to say what so many of us have been demanding for far too long… that a sitting Member of Congress should have the courage to talk about Impeaching Barack Hussein Obama… and [money blah blah]
From the Prison Planet: “I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not”. Those who will not are being removed,” Garrow wrote on his Facebook page, later following up the post by adding the man who told him is, “one of America’s foremost military heroes,” whose goal in divulging the information was to “sound the alarm.”
The Republican Party Establishment stubbornly refuses to give Dr. Paul a speaking slot on the main floor of the GOP convention that begins August 27th in Tampa, Florida. Rather, they want all their focus on handing the Republican nomination to Big Government Mitt Romney and his Big Government running mate, Paul Ryan.
