Asked about Tuesday’s overwhelming GOP wave which was eventually upgraded to a tsunami, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi denied its characterization as a wave, choosing instead to believe what the nation witnessed was “an ebbing of Democratic voters.”

Science: Your Eye Color Reveals A Lot About You

 

 

 

” There are many things that your eye color reveals about you. Did you know that no two people have the ‘exact’ same eye color? Or what about he fact that every person with blue eyes can be traced back to the same ancestor that lived in the black sea region about 10,000 years ago? It’s true. Everyone alive today with blue eyes has a very specific DNA sequence. Some of you may already know that when babies are first born, they have no melanin in their eyes, thus giving them a ‘hazy blue’ eye color. This changes quickly, though, into whatever color will be the baby’s permanent eye color.

  Brown eye color used to be considered dominant, but scientists have now revealed that eye color is actually a multi-gene trait, rather than a single gene one. It’s a little bit more complicated than to simply say that the brown eye color is the dominant one. It’s more of a gene combination. Did you know it’s genetically possible to have your iris divided into two colors, or even TWO different color irises?!

  Did you now that eye color can change over time? Eyes don’t constantly produce pigment, thus becoming lighter or even darker as time goes on. This little info-graphic by Mezzmer illustrates all of these fun facts in an easy to understand way. Your eyes truly say a lot about your ancestry.”

A West Virginia University freshman who did most of her campaigning out of her dorm room became the youngest state lawmaker in the nation Tuesday.

Republican Saira Blair, a fiscally conservative 18-year-old, will represent a small district in West Virginia’s eastern panhandle, about 1½ hours outside Washington, D.C., after defeating her Democratic opponent 63% to 30%, according to the Associated Press. A third candidate got 7% of the vote.

In a statement, Ms. Blair thanked her supporters and family, as well as her opponents for running a positive campaign. “History has been made tonight in West Virginia, and while I am proud of all that we have accomplished together, it is the future of this state that is now my singular focus,” she said.

Ms. Blair campaigned on a pledge to work to reduce…

As of this writing, wunderkind statistician Nate Silver puts the GOP chance of retaking control of the Senate in tomorrow’s midterm elections at 68.5 percent and trending upward. The New York Times model is similarly optimistic for Republicans, and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is so close to Senate Majority Leader that he’s probably daydreaming about it right now.

Yes, the GOP is likely to win the Senate tomorrow. But if the Republican establishment keeps failing to live up to its limited government rhetoric, who cares?

Sure, many politicians in the Republican Party talk a good talk. The problem is that—for most of them—it’s nothing but talk.

Take foreign policy, for instance. The last six months have seemed like a competition between Republicans and Democrats over who can stoke more fear and which party is more eager for another war. The hysterical and exaggerated depictions of the threat posed by ISIS are…

Earlier this year his artwork was used to promote the launch of “Breitbart California” a new branch of the web site that still bears the name of its late founder Andrew Breitbart. Some controversial tweets prompted the U.S. Secret Service to pay Sabo a visit recently and that may have made the new leadership at Breitbart skittish about associating with the artist.

Sabo, who tweets under the handle @unsavory agents, seems to think so. He’s not happy about it.

STILLWATER, Okla. – A 21-year-old Stillwater man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection to the death of an area college student who, according to police, was nearly decapitated.

Courtesy: Payne County Jail

Isaiah Zoar Marin, 21,  is accused of using a “long knife or sword” to kill 19-year-old Jacob Andrew Crockett at an apartment in the 400 block of S. Oakdale in Stillwater.

Police say the two men were “acquaintances” and Crockett was attending class at Northern Oklahoma College, but was planning to transfer to OSU.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers say they received a 911 call from Marin, saying he had just killed someone.

According to an arrest affidavit, Marin told police, “I murdered someone.”

According to the affidavit, he began “rambling about sacrificing and magic.”

Officers found him walking along State Highway 51 in western Stillwater, covered in blood and carrying a knife.

- The Guys from the stream roller scene called the police and the cops seized one of my cameras, containing one of the best reactions, I’ve ever had from the clown pranks. Once I get it back, I will post the scene directly on Facebook: https://facebook.com/dmpranks

- The guy, who jumped into the water also called the cops and we nearly had our entire crew arrested. Luckily, the cops were cool and we got lucky.

- The reveals and deleted scenes will be posted on my Facebook page in the following days or I’ll put up an annotation at the end of the video, linking to an Youtube video, containing everything.

- It took us about 5 weeks to produce this video.

- Getting the right victims was by far the hardest part, we’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time, cooperating over radio stations, choosing and waiting for the right victims.

- If someone’s face is blurred out, that’s because he/she didn’t sign our release form and the police was called several times too.

Children in Newington, Connecticut are already setting their sights on Thanksgiving and Christmas after elementary schools in their New England town abruptly canceled this year’s Halloween festivities.

“Everyone’s politically correct now and you don’t want to insult anyone’s denomination or religion,” one parent told Fox.

Instead of invoking any sort of negative spiritual connotations that come with the name “Halloween,” Ruth Chaffee Elementary and the Anna Reynolds School will hold a “Fall Festival.” Kids can dress up at the “Fall Festival,” but must keep their costumes exclusive to characters from books.

“I think it’s ridiculous. I don’t find it to be a big religious thing, the kids just get together with their costumes and have fun. It’s not like they talk about much, it’s just a day to have fun at school,” another parent said.
