Texas dispatcher asked to alter police reports to cover up racial profiling

As some criticize the Charlottesville police department for not responding properly to right-wing violence against minorities during Saturday’s protest, another department in Texas is being accused of racism.
According to the Houston Press, a former dispatcher from the Memorial Villages Police Department in the Houston suburbs has accused the department of racism.
One of the specific accusations L. Kelly, the African-American former dispatcher, made was that she “was asked to alter arrest data to conceal racial profiling.”
Kelly (who worked for the department for 6 years) also said she regularly heard officers use racial slurs about black and Latino people. According to her lawsuit, she was once made to watch a video depicting a white woman calling then-President Barack Obama the n-word and claiming she hopes he is assassinated.

One father of a marcher in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend is denouncing his own son after the young man was seen on national news spouting hate.

Charlottesville was not a 'protest turned violent' -- it was a riot planned by racist extremists

What took place was not a rally. Who wears paramilitary gear and carries automatic weapons to a rally? Who takes shields and helmets and pepper spray and bats and sticks to a rally? The car didn’t “crash”— it was driven at full speed into a crowd of counter-protesters.
What happened in Charlottesville was White nationalist extremists inciting a riot.

'Hahahaha love this'

A police officer stationed in Springfield, Massachusetts reacted to the news that a suspected white nationalist used his car to kill one protester and injure at least 19 other people.

Prevailing theories of Earth formation could be wrong

When scientists came up with currently accepted theories about how the Earth formed soon after the sun itself came into being about 4.5 billion years ago, one of the most important factors in their calculations was what is thought to be the composition of our planet’s core and mantle. But a new experiment, whose results were shared Sunday at a conference on geochemistry, casts doubt on those theories, suggesting they could be wrong and need revision.

A total solar eclipse was once all about fear

Throughout much of history, witnessing a total solar eclipse would mean one thing above all else. And that is fear.
For the ancient Greeks, an eclipse was a sign that the gods were angry. The Vikings saw eclipses as a potential apocalypse. And the ancient Chinese apparently believed that an eclipse meant that a giant dragon was trying to devour the sun and that people needed to make as much noise as possible to scare the dragon away.

How do jets from supermassive black holes lose energy?

Black holes are objects in space whose gravitational pull is so strong that even light is unable to escape, but despite that, there is some amount of radiation that actually goes outward from black holes. Highly energetic jets traveling at near the speed of light, called active galactic nuclei (AGN) jets, take energy from that radiation and are among the most extreme outbursts that have been observed in the universe.
