I’d like to welcome everyone to the WHYS weekend blog. It’s my first weekend as the moderator/editor, so if I miss something feel free to give me a shout-out. I am very excited to spend the weekend with you and look forward to a lively discussion.
Topics ideas for discussions:
1) Science: Stem cell research has been very controversial over the years with new developments in recent reports, will the heath benefits finally overcome the religious objections? The story from the BBC: Stem cells Created from teeth
2) Politics: Obama said yesterday that he has selected a VP, but declined to give any details saying, “I won’t comment on anything else until I introduce our running mate to the world.” Any guess on who the VP will be or comments on who was chosen, since it is very likely Senator Obama will make the announcement this Saturday? The person(s) who guesses accurately will win a prize. Maybe not an Olympic gold medal, but bragging rights can be just as fun.
3) Just for a laugh: I got big laugh out of two articles in recent weeks from Newsweek that I’d like to share. Do you agree with the back lash from readers against the author or teaching his child to be “intolerant”?
1st Newsweek article: Make. It. Stop. The case for ending our long national nightmare
2nd Newsweek article in response to the backlash: A Croc of … Wit, Readers lash a rant against the popular rubber clog
