NRA gives Ajit Pai “courage award” and gun for “saving the Internet”

quote [ "Ajit Pai, as you probably already know, saved the Internet," American Conservative Union (ACU) Executive Director Dan Schneider told the audience.

"As soon as President Trump came into office, President Trump asked Ajit Pai to liberate the Internet and give it back to you," Schneider added. "Ajit Pai is the most courageous, heroic person that I know." ]

A primary skill of the new information age, in my mind, is flipping a narrative, and investigating if the inverse is true. Let's see, Ajit Pai ruined the internet (probably, lets hope not), is a coward and a tool. Yep, checks out.

Reported "inside source": Valve is basically afraid to make Half Life 3

quote [ Say it ain't so, Gaben! Half-Life 3 will never release, and what's worse, Valve wants it that way. We have multiple sources all confirming this... ]

According to these guys and a reported inside source from within Valve, Valve is not planning on making HL3, Ever. The conclusion from these guys "The Know", is that Valve is currently making so much money with Steam sales and other titles, and HL3 is so anticipated, that is can only fall short of expectations and end up hurting Valve's reputation. Course, all this is just a rumor, and possibly even clickbait nonsense shit.

Major study - "Neonic" pesticides harm not only bees, but earth-worms, butterflies, fish and birds as well.

quote [ Analysing two decades of reports on the topic, an international panel of 29 scientists found there was "clear evidence of harm" from use of two pesticide types, neonicotinoids and fipronil. And the evidence was "sufficient to trigger regulatory action". ]

Meanwhile, there's reportedly no immediate alternative to these pesticides, and other sourcesclaim Neonics pose no threat. (Article from last year)
