My Google Portal sites

by David Veksler David Veksler No Comments

Here are some nifty sites whose RSS feeds I’ve added to my Google Portal:


eHow
– features daily “how to” article. Today’s “how to” stories include “How to Deal With an Overbearing Mother” and “How to Select Art for Your Home

Engadget – my source for all gadget-related news. For more general (and more left-biased) tech news, be sure to check out Slashdot.

Interesting Thing of the Day – a daily article on some interesting thing for the culturally-inspired (or challenged).

Wired – one of the first online culture mags, they will occasional feature interesting commentary — if you can filter out all the nonsense.

Capitalism Magazine: a collection of conservative editorials and ARI press releases, this is a good survey of capitalist and Objectivist writing.

Mises.org daily articles –a variety of writers, including the occasional libertarian peacenik, but also some brilliant economic commentary. For more economic insight, check out Café Hayek

The Egosphere – last but not least is my own metablog, which features posts and articles from about a dozen Objectivist bloggers, including yours truly.

"Targeted guinea pig farm closes"

by David Veksler David Veksler No Comments

British enviro-terrorists score another victory:

The family-run Darley Oaks Farm in Newchurch, Staffordshire, has been at the centre of a campaign of abuse.
The owners and people connected with the business have received death threats during the six-year onslaught.

There are two notable things about this story: the UK police have essentially given up trying to stop enviro-terrorists because the “campaign had been so widespread,” and the state-run BBC gives several paragraphs to quote the environuts, (who differ only on tactics) but no room at all to any opposing position. Whether that is because advocates of individual rights have been totally marginalized, or were never there to begin with, I don’t know.
