Greta Thunberg was named Time magazine's 2019 Person of the Year. She is youngest figure to receive the distinction in its 92-year history. "She became the biggest voice on the biggest issue facing the planet this year, coming from essentially nowhere to lead a worldwide movement," Time Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal said at the announcement on Wednesday. "She embodies youth activism." The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist has become an iconic face in the fight to save the planet from climate change.

President Trump slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — needling him as “Cryin’ Chuck” — over criticism of his new trade deal with China. “Chuck Schumer sat for years during the Obama Administration and watched as China ripped off the United States,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “Now, without even seeing it, he snipes at our GREAT new deal with China. Too bad Cryin’ Chuck!” The partial trade agreement, announced Friday, canceled a new set of tariffs set to take effect this weekend, and scaled back tariffs that remain in place. In exchange, China agreed to buy more US farm products and remove some of its retaliatory tariffs on American goods.

A spokeswoman for Melania Trump on Friday defended President Trump for mocking Greta Thunberg, explaining that the 16-year-old climate activist is a public figure while the president’s 13-year-old son is a private individual who “deserves” to be left out of the public eye. “Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Stephanie Grisham, who serves as top communication aide for the first lady and the White House, said in a statement, CNN reported. Mr. Trump sparked a wave of backlash Thursday after he said it was “ridiculous” that Greta was recently named Time magazine’s Person of the Year.

Women just barely surpassed the number of men enrolled in medical schools, comprising 50.5% of the student population. The milestone builds upon earlier turning points for women in 2017 and 2018. In 2017, women accounted for most of first-year students in medical schools.

Hermit crabs face a uniquely competitive real estate market. They need bigger and bigger shells throughout their lives, but can’t grow these homes themselves. So they rely on castoff snail shells, and are constantly on the lookout for better properties entering the market. A study that will be published next month in the journal Physica A found that the distribution of these shells in one hermit crab population was surprisingly similar to the distribution of wealth in human societies. That may make hermit crabs one of the first animals known to experience wealth inequality. (Snip)“Vacancy chains are just another way of transferring property,” he said.

Matt Gaetz introduced a three-line amendment that explicitly mentioned Hunter Biden and the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma.

George Murray Levick made the findings in 1910 but his manuscript was too shocking to publish in Edwardian Britain. On his travels, he witnessed a kind of penguin 'prostitution' in which stones would be exchanged for female penguins. (Snip) In his account, Levick described witnessing 'gang rape' and sexual abuse of chicks, according to The Sun which has seen a copy of the book. Female penguins would be 'pimped out' with stones, but would sometimes run away with them after a courtship ritual, he said.

When it comes to the unlawful surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the most important question is, what did President Obama know and when did he know it? If we are to believe the testimony in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FISA abuse, Obama didn’t know anything about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Neither did his attorney general, her deputy, or anyone in the White House. At least not that they can recall – an expression used over 200 times in the report. Yet against this we have the Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Lisa Page to her paramour Peter Strzok saying “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”

The Trump administration is preparing to move the public lands management bureau out of Washington, DC to Colorado. It makes perfect sense because the vast majority of public lands are out west. It’s a great tactical move as well. One of the best ways to drain the swamp is to decentralize federal agencies by getting them out of the swamp. Some employees are not happy about this and are quitting rather than moving to Colorado. It’s almost like what they really care about is living in DC, and not public lands management.The Associated Press reports:
