Ooooop’s,

“At least two civilians have been injured in a bombing incident during Russia’s war games on Monday. Videos of the incident have been posted to YouTube and appear to show two helicopters firing at a civilian viewing area. Russian media report that the incident is being investigated by the military.

The war exercises, called “Zapad-2017″ or “West 2017,” are believed to be the largest show of military strength by Russia since the fall of the Soviet Union. And the war games come amid heightened tensions with the United States as the world is now operating much more like the Cold War, a period ostensibly ended in 1991.” Videos and article here.> Russian Military Accidentally Fires at Civilians During War Games

“From 1945 until 1962, the United States conducted 210 atmospheric nuclear tests—the kind with the big mushroom cloud and all that jazz. Above-ground nuke testing was banned in 1963, but there are thousands of films from those tests that have just been rotting in secret vaults around the country. But starting today you can see many of them on YouTube.

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) weapon physicist Greg Spriggs has made it his mission to preserve these 7,000 known films, many of them literally decomposing while they’re still classified and hidden from the public.” Videos and more here.> Rare Nuclear Test Films Saved, Declassified, and Uploaded to YouTube

Commentary / Opinion:

“The headline of an article in The New York Times poses an interesting question: “Cake is his art. So can he deny one to a gay couple?”

Actually, it’s not that interesting. The answer is yes. Very simple. No matter how you read the Bill of Rights, there’s no way to interpret it as granting the government permission to force a private citizen to take part in a gay wedding. You can flip the First Amendment upside down, turn it inside out, spin it in circles and get it drunk, and still it won’t give a homosexual couple the power to compel a Christian to make them a cake, no matter how inconvenient it may be to drive 18 and a half feet to the next bakery and get a cake from someone who isn’t a devout Christian.” More here.> Matt Walsh: I’m not ‘forcing my morality on you’ — you’re forcing your immorality on me
