    Blind Denial of Science is a Growing Epidemic. ANSWER? MASA Free hat to you!

    An important message, believe in education and science

    Science, research and study are the foundations of progress, economic development and a healthier and more robust civilization.

    MASA, "MAKE AMERICA SMART AGAIN," has never been needed more in our world, if you believe in education and science.

    We are seeing an often older and more rigid, politically-minded group in America -- haters and deniers of science. Politicians and political ideologues decide to discredit the science from which powerful conclusions come, or bend the science to support their policy positions. When politicians or others determine to discredit science that disagrees with their political will or policy, they have created "policy-based evidence" instead of "evidence-based policy."

    A wave of radio and TV talk shows and blogs are promoting ideas that are in absolute denial of science, and promoting politicians who preach those ideas. It is amazing, but true. Some use blatant denial of science as justification for not taking steps toward a clean environment, or the elimination of toxins from our air and water, or toward safe food and water. They deny the science behind global warming even in light of massive changes in climate throughout the world. The result, as people in California, Florida, Texas, the Midwest and the Caribbean have learned in 2017-2018-2019, can be disaster. Californians learned how costly it is to ignore voices of science. The results there have been disastrous and deadly. Scientists for years have warned that the USA, for example, would suffer from higher temperatures, less rain and more drought. Scientists repeatedly have called for action. First the American West, and then the heartland farmers had the worst water shortages in decades after ignoring years of science warning about water issues. Farmers suffered first, then towns and cities as their lakes, rivers and water sources diminished. Then we saw the massive forest fires sweeping the West Coast, while floods and record breaking storms hit other parts of the nation-- all predicted by science and debunked by political leaders who denied science. Many in America were stunned when President Trump declared that every agency of the U.S. Government would cease publishing or announcing scientific studies or research to the American people -- an obvious result of the Trump crowd's fear of scientific research or conclusions. This is odd, because polls indicate that most Americans believe in science. …

    Copper Kills Viruses, Cold, Flu?! Modern Science Learning from Ancient Past

    I was traveling in India and visited an ancient fortress complex. There they displayed a huge copper vat mounted on two large wooden beams. The guide said, “When the king traveled to other lands, this was his water container. It was made of copper for purity and health.” I saw similar giant copper water pots in China and later Mongolia...

New York, California, Florida and Texas are international in scope and can afford excellent ports...

    How Was the "Second" Created, and How Did It Get Its Name?

    The Delicate Subject of the "Thunder Pot," "John" or the "Crapper"

    The Thunder Pot, J ohn or the Crapper? Before the commode was invented, people often used a simple hole in the ground. Then came the outhouse ... a shed with a sitting bench with a hole in the bench over a hole in the ground. Perhaps the American outhouse was where more reading took place on the frontier than any other location...

    Grandfather's Clock: LESSONS IN TIME

    The old clock was a gift to my father from his father many years ago, perhaps in the late 1950s. My father was a young businessman, and he owned a Ben Franklin Store. He had three brothers, and at one time or another every one of them owned a “five and dime” variety store. The variety store was a new and exciting retail concept, and they were on the leading edge of an economic change...
