Dallas police attackers appeared 'tactically professional' and 'focused'; 'I Kind of Ruined My Life By Going to College'...more

Military experts: Dallas police attackers appeared 'tactically professional' and 'focused'  ..."All you can tell is that the shooter appears comfortable doing what he's doing. Controls the weapon, deliberate aiming/firing," Gibbons-Neff noted on Twitter. 
 
He added: "I guess what jumps the most is his assault on the officer. In combat, it's called a close ambush. If you're engaged from within 25 yards, you establish fire superiority and assault through the objective. Something — training or no training — this guy clearly did."... 

'I Kind of Ruined My Life By Going to College': 4 Student Debt Horror Stories  Millennials know the story by heart. Work hard in high school, go to a good college, spend four years to get your degree, and the sky's the limit. But college is looking more and more like a racket, and according to a new report, student debt has become a $1.3 trillion industry, with 42 million Americans footing the bill.

"I feel I kind of ruined my life by going to college," said Jacki Krowen of Portland, Oregon. A 32-year-old nurse, Krowen has a student loan balance of $152,000. "I can't plan for an actual future," she laments. And there are many who would consider Krowen a success by comparison...

To improve diversity, don't make people go to diversity training. Really.  In the cover story of the latest issue of the Harvard Business Review, sociologists from Harvard University and Tel Aviv University explore the counterintuitive idea that some of the most common tools for improving diversity -- one of which is mandatory training -- are not just ineffective. They could be detrimental to improving the number of women and minorities in the managerial ranks.

Making people attend diversity training may seem to make sense, said one of the study's co-authors, Alexandra Kalev, in an interview: "But it doesn’t work. For decades, diversity management programs flourished with no evidence whatsoever about their effects and their success."...

Iowa church sues over state order that could censor Christian sexual beliefs from sermons  The government has no right to require a church to allow biological men to use the women's showers in its building, even if that takes place during one of its peripheral ministries, a Des Moines church says in a legal complaint filed on the Fourth of July.

The Fort Des Moines Church of Christ challenged the Iowa Civil Rights Commission's view that the church's First Amendment privileges end if the building is not engaged in a worship ceremony, according to the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the church.

“The Iowa Civil Rights Commission interprets the Iowa Civil Rights Act” for public accommodations in such as way as “to force churches to allow individuals access to church restrooms, shower facilities, and changing rooms based on his or her gender identity, irrespective of biological sex,” the church's legal complaint states...

Stetzer: Churches in America Part I The polls are in and the news is bad for the Church in America. Christianity is on the decline, Americans have given up on God, and the “Nones”—those who have no religious ties—are on the rise. It is indeed true that parts of the Christian Church in America are struggling, while a growing number of Americans are far from God...

ISIS moves across European borders with ease   ...Abrini said the terror cell moved freely through Europe. “You know, an international arrest warrant, to be sought [by the police], that doesn’t change anything,” he claimed. “I passed every day in front of soldiers, policemen. Not with a covered face, but with a cap.”

He added: “Security at the borders can never protect anyone. It’s just the politicians who want to delude people that they protect them, but there is usually no security. It has never been real.”...

The 14 most damaging things said about Clinton's emails at the FBI press briefing  FBI Director James Comey has recommended no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server to conduct official government business. And while Clinton is nearly guaranteed to face no criminal indictment now, there was a lot in Comey's press statement that was damaging to the former secretary of state and should be used against her in the general elections...

The imploding cabal to criminalize climate dissent New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and his fellow greenies are getting a lesson about the dangers of believing their own propaganda.

These know-it-alls claim there’s a “consensus” on climate change and what to do about it. And they believe that consensus is so broad that even prosecuting dissent would be a slam dunk. Claude Walker’s monumental crash-and-burn this week blew up that theory. Schneiderman and his ideological pals, from Al Gore to Hillary Clinton, would be wise to take note.

Walker is the attorney general for the US Virgin Islands who launched a ludicrous racketeering probe of ExxonMobil and sent sweeping subpoenas to the company and the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Ostensibly, his suspicion, like that of a similar probe by Schneiderman, was that Exxon fraudulently downplayed climate change’s dangers to the public and its investors...

 how megalomaniacs in hoodies became tech's answer to Wall Street   ...The spirit of Silicon Valley, he says, is changing. What sprang from a 1960s counterculture is morphing into just another industry where Ivy League kids go to try to make a name for themselves. ‘So many people in tech have no sense of right or wrong’, he says describing one guy he saw close up behaving abusively in the form of a gangster rather than a company exec. "He’d probably be in jail if he had a bit more violence to him," he says. "These companies are temples to the founders’ egos. You don’t even have that level of self worship on Wall Street.”...

Brain-Eating Amoeba: What You Need to Know This Summer  An Ohio teen's recent death from a brain-eating amoeba she contracted at an American water park has caused nation-wide panic about the deadly organism that can be found lurking in warm waters across the country.

Lauren Setiz, 18, visited the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her church youth group on June 8 for a day of fun in the sun. The teen returned home on June 11, but died suddenly on June 19. In a statement to PEOPLE, the Public Health Department in Ohio confirmed she died from the brain-eating amoeba...

A.S. Haley: Curmudgeonly Remarks as America Turns 240
The America of 2016 is as unlike the America that declared its independence from Britain in 1776 as Bernie Sanders is unlike Thomas Jefferson.

Just as Mr. Sanders has no clue to the importance of the freedoms which Jefferson and his compatriots proclaimed were the essence of this country's founding, so the majority of Americans today have no clue to what the Fourth of July is all about. My generation has failed abysmally to transmit to our successors an appreciation of those freedoms -- and of their inextricable intertwining with America's prosperity and exceptional character.

Benjamin Franklin, once asked by a woman what the founding fathers had given to America after the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia had adjourned in September 1787, replied succinctly: "A republic, madam -- if you can keep it."

We have not managed to keep the republic our fathers handed down to us...

The time also includes hearing the testimonies of how candidates came to faith in Christ...

Episcopal Church's Largest Congregation Is 300 Muslims Who Meet for Friday Prayers   An Episcopal church in Washington, D.C. has been welcoming Muslims into their sanctuary for Friday prayers for eight years, and the men who meet there now outnumber the church's congregation.

The Rev. Elizabeth Gardner of the Church of the Epiphany said the congregation felt called to open the church to the Muslim community because they were in need of a place to worship.
"It's our job to be the hands and feet of peace in the world, and how do we do that is by loving one another," she told CBS News in an interview posted on Thursday.

Farooq Syed, who coordinates the Friday prayers, said "I don't know if they ever thought that Muslims would come here and pray, and become one of the biggest congregations of Church of the Epiphany. This is the biggest congregation that Church of the Epiphany has, the Muslim prayers."...
