How science got women wrong

     It is hardly surprising that "A striking pattern emerges: almost all of the prominent scientists behind these studies are men, whereas much of the growing, more recent research that disputes them is done by women." It is what one has come to expect in science, whether from conscious or unconscious bias, when the researchers have an interest in the outcome.

It makes them like you and think you are one of them.
To say Presdient Trump lies all the time is a useless argument in this arena, boiling down to "But mommy, he did it too!" It's true, he does lie a lot and many disrespect him because of it. The news media also lie to us a lot, so why is anyone surprised when we disrespect them as well?

Dollar Gets Squeezed From All Sides

Greenback is down 5.6% this year, against a basket of currencies

And also down by 10% against the Yuan.  Does this mean, as President Trump would say, that the US is manipulating its currency?
