New Spiders Discovered
Oregon and California residents, watch out for some new eight-legged friends! Scientists say they have found a new family of spiders in caves in the two states. The arachnids, which are about 2.75 inches long, have been named “Trogloraptors,” or “cave robbers.” Even creepier? They have pointed claws. It’s been 140 years since the last discovery of this kind, and doubtless there are some people out there who hope it will be another 140 before the next one.

Obama Pushes to Extend Wind Subsidy
President Obama dug at Mitt Romney’s opposition to subsidies like one for wind energy producers that’s about to expire and others that offer tax credits for cleaner oil alternatives. “The wind industry supports about 5,000 jobs across this state,” the President said near a wind turbine manufacturing plant in Pueblo, Colorado Thursday. “Without those tax credits, 37,000 American jobs, potentially including hundreds of jobs right here, would be at risk.” Obama touted, to a supportive crowd, the benefits of clean energy as a means of competing with other countries instead of continuing to subsidize the oil industry with $4 billion a year. The tax credit on companies that produce wind energy has been consistently renewed for the past twenty years but is set to expire at the end of this year. While Obama advocates renewing it again, Mitt Romney has made clear that, if elected, he’d let the subsidy die.

Report: Gunman Abused Alcohol 20120807
The gunman who killed six at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wis., on Sunday struggled with alcohol, according to investigators. Wade Michael Page was booted from the Army in 1998 for showing up intoxicated to military exercises. A year later he was cited for drunk driving in Colorado. Page worked as a truck driver from 2006 to 2010, when the company fired him after he was charged with driving while impaired in North Carolina. After losing his job, Page fell into financial trouble and wasn’t able to keep up with the mortgage payments on his house. He was foreclosed on in January.
Page Wanted ‘Racial Holy War’ 20120807
New details have emerged regarding Wade Michael Page’s life before the shooting at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee. In the Army, Page rose to the rank of sergeant before losing a stripe due to “patterns of misconduct.” Christopher Robillard, who described Page as his “closest friend” in the service, recalled that Page would often talk about a “racial holy war.” Robillard said, “He would talk about the racial holy war, like he wanted it to come.” After being discharged from the Army, Page moved to Denver where he joined a “racist band.” The FBI said that Page may also have been involved with the white supremacist movement, but that has not yet been confirmed.

Louisiana School: No Pregnant Girls 20120807
A Louisiana public charter school is receiving the wrath of the ACLU after it was revealed they were demanding female students take pregnancy tests if they are suspected of being pregnant — and forcing them to leave school if the tests came back positive. The ACLU sent a letter to the Delhi Charter School Monday calling the policy unconstitutional and “in clear violation of federal law.” The K-12 public school justifies its “student pregnancy policy” as a way to ensure students “exhibit acceptable character traits.”

Where is God’s snowflake machine?
Probably the most common argument that creationists use in defense of their crazy delusions is that if something looks designed, and its not designed by humans, then there is no possible other explanation except that an invisible all-powerful god did it; and of course that god is always the Christian god, never Zeus or Mithra, but I digress.
Hypocrisy of religion #1: Bill O’Reilly vs. 8 yr-old girl
Christianity is no better than Islam when it comes to ignorantly and arrogantly self-proclaiming their superiority to all other beliefs; They both in belief and in practice stand that anybody who opposes their ideas should be prosecuted.
Mars Landscape ‘Earth-Like’
The Curiosity rover took pictures from beyond the Gale Crater for the first time since landing on Sunday night. The images it sent back from looking toward the northern Horizon looked very similar to another planet. “The first impression that you get is how Earth-like this seems looking at that landscape,” a scientist at the California Institute of Technology said. Curiosity has sent back a slew of images since landing. There was concern that the swirl of dust caused by the landing thrusters had made rovers too dusty, but Justin Maki of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory disputed that. “We do see a thin coating of dust, but nothing too bad.”
Curiosity Sends Back Photos
The Curiosity Mars rover is safely landed on the floor of Gale Crater on mars and has already begun transmitting pictures back to scientists on Earth. Grainy black-and-white photos show landscape of the red planet and soon, after the main camera is set up, high-resolution color photos will begin being sent back. “To me, it’s representative of a successful landing on Mars, it’s representative of a new home for the rover, it’s representative of a new Mars that we’ve never seen before,” says mission manager Mike Watkins. “And so every one of those pictures is the most beautiful picture I’ve ever seen.” The two-year, $2.5 billion project’s goal is to seek out signs of whether life on Mars was ever possible…

Floods Ravage Manila
A third of Manila, the capital of the Philippines, is under water. The head of the government disaster relief agency referred to the crisis as “Waterworld,” as thousands remain trapped on roofs. Last week’s storms and subsequent flooding have left 50 dead and forced 250,000 to evacuate. Manila streets were completely submerged, closing schools and offices. Rescue workers used rafts to access slum areas. Tuesday, nine were killed in a Quezon City slum after a landslide. Manila, which has an overpopulated 10 million residents, is located in low-lying land between a lake and the ocean.
Gauss Spyware Infects Lebanon
Security researchers at Kaspersky Labs have found a strange new cyber-espionage tool, and they say it’s from the same state-sponsored hackers who designed an espionage tool that recently flooded Iranian computers. The new spyware is called Gauss and it has infected at least 2,500 computers, mostly in Lebanon. Researchers say it may be the first example of state-sponsored cyberwarfare that includes the stealing of login information—in this case, banking credentials. One of them said that unlike other recently-discovered spyware, Gauss seems to have multiple purposes. “When you look at Stuxnet and DuQu, they were obviously single-goal operations,” he said. “But here I think what you see is a broader operation happening all in one.”
