A petition calling for the prohibition of laws requiring mandatory vaccines has been throttled by the White House, buried from public view and finally frozen for over 36 hours to prevent the petition from achieving 100,000 signatures.

The petition, which was rapidly headed toward the 100,000 signatures needed to trigger a response from the White House, was frozen mid-day Friday and has remained stuck at 56,791 signatures for over 36 hours.

A white teenager who moved from South Africa to America six years ago was suspended from school after nominating himself for a "Distinguished African-American Student of the Year" prize.

Trevor Richards, 16, was accused of "showing disrespect" to black pupils at Westside High School in Omaha, Nebraska. It is thought he is the only pupil to have lived in Africa. He and two friends put up campaign posters showing him making a thumbs-up sign and all three were suspended. "The posters were intended to be satire on the term 'African-American'," said one of his campaign managers, Scott Rambo. The phrase is the current politically correct label for black Americans.

The potential derailment of Einstein reminds us of our limitations and man's finite knowledge.

Einstein may have been wrong. New evidence suggests that the speed of light, central to his special theory of relativity, may not be the ultimate speed limit. If the findings hold up, everything we think we know about the inner workings of our universe will need to be revised. This potential discovery reminds us that science is a continual process which is rarely conclusive. That should inform our regard for politicized scientific claims.

More than four decades after the first model preschool interventions, there is an emerging consensus that high-quality early-childhood education can improve a child's economic and social outcomes over the long term.

Publicly funded kindergarten is available to virtually all children in the U.S. at age five, but access to preschool opportunities for children four years old and younger remains uneven across regions and socioeconomic groups. Parents with financial means have the option of enrolling their child in a private program at their own expense.

Back in June, we announced a pilot program to allow users to surface Google Search data in Google Analytics by linking their Webmaster Tools accounts.

We've been busy making some improvements and tweaks based on user feedback, and today we're excited to make this set of reports available to all users. The Webmaster Tools section contains three reports based on the Webmaster Tools data that we hope will give you a better sense of how your site performs in search results. We've created a new section for these reports called Search Engine Optimization that will live under the Traffic Sources section

Weather Channel Founder John Coleman explains the history of the Global Warming hoax.

Coleman, a former broadcast meteorologist of the year of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), explains that after being a member for several years, he quit the AMS after it became very clear to him that "the politics had gotten in the way of the science." Coleman explains that there is no man-made global warming, and he's sure of it. Coleman says that if there were evidence of man-made global warming, he would have been dedicated his life to stopping it: "I love our wonderful planet Earth. If I thought it was threatened by global warming, I would devote my life to stopping the warming!"

Faster than light travel may actually be possible using a warp drive to bend space around a starship. New calculations suggest such a vehicle would require less energy than once thought.

A warp drive to achieve faster-than-light travel - a concept popularized in television's Star Trek - may not be as unrealistic as once thought, scientists say. A warp drive would manipulate space-time itself to move a starship, taking advantage of a loophole in the laws of physics that prevent anything from moving faster than light. A concept for a real-life warp drive was suggested in 1994 by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre; however, subsequent calculations found that such a device would require prohibitive amounts of energy.

Medicinal (and, ahem, recreational) marijuana aims to soothe, ease, and relax users; take away said users' pot and be prepared to face the consequences.

A report released Tuesday by the RAND Corp., a Santa Monica-based think tank, revealed that after hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries were forced to close in Los Angeles last year, crime rates rose significantly in nearby neighborhoods. Law enforcement agencies have long been after these dispensaries, arguing that the large amounts of cash are a magnet for thieves, who often go on to resell marijuana. Yet, after what investigators are calling "the most rigorous independent examination of its kind" of LA dispensaries, it appears that the city might need to rethink their position.

Don't be silly. You wouldn't give up the Internet for the rest of your life for one million dollars, and it would still be a bad bet at one billion dollars.

In short, we need people with lots of disposable income to become early adopters and drive the demand that eventually makes technology accessible to everyone. The cell phone demonstrates just how much that process has accelerated. Thanks to the government-protected AT&T monopoly, mobile phones were almost nonexistent until the 1980s. When competition opened in the Ma Bell breakup, investors and innovators jumped into the market. Cell phones didn't just get smaller, they got a lot cheaper very quickly and began to displace pagers within a decade. Now they're so ubiquitous that nearly everyone can own one, even if it's just a cheapie pre-pay phone. Most cell phones now carry broadband Internet access capability, which allows for massive access to the public. The more people use the Internet, the more important it becomes to be connected to it.

I'm fascinated by the concept, partly because it answers a question I've always had.

There's so much visual data in the average photo that's indecipherable, whether due to parts being out of focus, shot in poor light, and so forth. A bad pic is like a badly damaged hard drive, with only some of the "files" readable. Can't technology figure out a way to recover the unrecoverable data? Yep, it can.
