Now for the actually important and interesting stuff:

Czech republic women biathlon team wins a bronze medal in 4*6 km relay at ... Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics  :lol:

There is more shuffle in the medals going on as the IOC takes a hard stance in the Russian doping affair.
Court of Arbitration for Sport steps in to save 28 Russian athletes. 11 remaining athletes are still ****, but will not get lifetime ban.

Some really good news: this year we may witness a big breakthrough in cancer treatment.

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine are going to start tests in humans with a vaccine comprised of two substances that when injected in tumors, reactivates cancer-specific T cells for the tissue it was injected.

The cells then migrate, and the immune system can identify and target all similar cancerous cells throughout the body.

Tests shows this treatment completely eliminated cancer in 87 of the 90 mice. Recurrent tumors were cured with another round of treatment.

The bill passed.

Quote
"Poland's Senate has approved a controversial bill that makes it illegal to accuse Poles of complicity in the Nazi Holocaust."
Sounds like the law might be phrased in a vague way, to include any Polish person - not just the government/state.

Now, Israeli MPs are backing a bill that would expand Israel's existing Holocaust denial laws to include a five-year jail sentence for anyone denying or minimising the role of Nazi collaborators, including Poles, in crimes committed in the Holocaust.

Lol watch the free speech heroes suddenly be nowhere to be found.
The Czech skull is impervious to reason, but it is susceptible to blows.

The American dream is that anything can happen to anyone. It's just totally random.

Wait, am I getting this right: Poles ban calling Poles Nazis for having opinions on the holocaust and in response Israelis ban having opinions on the holocaust?

'The country has long objected to the use of phrases like "Polish death camps", which suggest the Polish state in some way shared responsibility for camps such as Auschwitz. The camps were built and operated by Nazi Germany after it invaded Poland in 1939.'

yeah we just recently had a long long debate about this in Turkish competitive debating mail group because there was a motion in some university debate tournament which used the phrase 'Turkish genocide against Armenians' then people kept discussing whether this expression was racist even if the genocide happened. It's unfortunate if the law forbids saying Polish death camps.

Agreed. It's unfortunate if anyone bans any word or phrase at all.

The new US Nuclear Posture Review includes a pretty scary program: the idea to create modern tactical nukes, in the 20kT range. The motivation for this is the claim that since the destructive power of strategic nuclear weapons is so immense, other countries could think that the US would never use them, leading to the loss of the nuclear deterrence. So, to reinforce the deterrence, US should create modern, cruise missile fitting tactical nuclear warheads, that could be used in battlefield conditions.

This isn't a new idea at all, it has been floated ever since the late 1940s. The inherent risk in it is that it relies completely on the untested and, frankly unrealistic assumption that a nuclear escalation could be stopped. If the situation is such that a tactical nuke could justifiable be used, it is ridiculous to think that the other side would then happily stick to the same.

America: "Oh, Russia is taking over country X using chemical weapons. Since our WMD doctrine equates all types of NBC weaponry, we'll respond with a cruise missile carrying a 20kT warhead against the airbase their poison planes are taking off from"
BOOM
Russia: "Americans nuked our airbase. Fine, let's shoot a single R-36 Satan with its 40 warheads to take out forty American bases"
BOOM x40
America: "Russians nuked us! We must eliminate their missile capability. Shoot Tridents and Minutemen at all known Russian nuclear silos!"
Russia: "American full strike incoming! Launch everything!"

Cockroaches: "We rule the planet now"

Well, that is an exaggeration but seriously, there is nothing logical about expecting a nuclear weapon exchange to NOT escalate to full strategic strikes. When the first nuke is used, the other side must retaliate in kind. It's the whole basis for Mutually Assured Destruction.

Hopefully Democrats can take over Congress sufficiently that they can stop it. Not to mention that it's a total waste of money.
