    Russia has formally told the United States that it is about to start exercises with its nuclear forces, officials said Tuesday, at a time of heightened tension over Ukraine amid claims and counterclaims that one side or the other was planning to use a dirty bomb. To underscore the high stakes, President Joe Biden warned Moscow it would be making a serious mistake if it chose to use tactical nuclear weapons. It follows alarm that Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready for one last brutal roll of the dice as his forces face setbacks in Ukraine. Moscow has claimed, without evidence, that Ukraine is preparing to use a 'dirty bomb' - a conventional explosive packed with radioactive material - on its own soil as part of a false-flag operation to blame Russia. Against that backdrop, Russia announced it is about to start its 'Grom' exercises - Russian for 'thunder' - which will likely include test launches of ballistic missiles. 'The U.S. was notified and, as we've highlighted before, this is a routine annual exercise by Russia,' spokesman Air Force Brigadier General...
    Photo by Eric Hersman via Flickr. Using the term “Latinx” isn’t just ineffective, but is actively offending a significant portion of Hispanic voters, a poll by a Democratic firm has found, with only 2 percent of respondents saying they use the word to identify themselves and 30 percent saying they would be less likely to support a politician or political organization that used it. When asked which of the following terms they use to describe their own ethnic background, 68 percent said Hispanic, 21 percent said Latina/Latino, 8 percent said another answer, 2 percent said Latinx, and 1 percent did not answer. The poll of 800 “registered voters of Hispanic/Latina(o) origin residing in the United States” was conducted by Bendixen & Amandi International from Nov. 17 to 21. The margin of error is +/- 3.46 percent. The controversy arises, as Politico’s Marc Caputo and Sabrina Rodriguez noted, from how the Spanish language assigns masculine or feminine gender to nouns and a clash with progressive efforts to address people in a gender-neutral way. The plural word “Latinos” uses the masculine form,...
    It was a pretty simple design: "Happy 25th Anniversary" written to the officer in blue atop white frosting, his badge number — and a Philadelphia police badge with the motto, "Honor, Integrity, Service," the station said. Image source: WPVI-TV video screenshotWhat happened next? After Jones got the cake from the Bakery House in Bryn Mawr, a Philly suburb, her officer friend was about to bring it into his office to share with colleagues when Jones noticed the three words on the badge were a tad different, WPVI noted. The badge motto instead read, "Coffee, Corruption, Donuts," the station said. Image source: WPVI-TV video screenshot "I wanted to cry because I'm like, 'I can't believe they did this,'" Jones later told WPVI. "That's so humiliating to put on someone's cake who is serving 25 years and in a not-so-easy job." Image source: WPVI-TV video screenshot What did the bakery have to say? Sandy Stauffer, owner of the Bakery House, told the station the offending badge decoration was used by mistake....

    Carl Hart is a psychology professor at Columbia University. Courtesy of Carl Hart Professor Carl Hart has studied psychoactive drugs for more than three decades. His new book lays out why he thinks all drugs should be legal. Other experts stress limiting supply and putting more limits on big drug companies could help. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Carl Hart says he first tried heroin six or seven years ago. At the time, he was already a tenured professor at Columbia University, and "well over 40," according to his new book, "Drug Use for Grown Ups." After doing that "short, thin line" with a friend he felt "a dreamy light sedation, free of stress."  Then, the two chatted, laughed, "called it an evening and went home."  Hart, a psychology professor and neuroscience expert, had already worked (legally) with drugs including marijuana, cocaine, and heroin for more than 25 years, studying drug users and aiming to answer questions about the threats that drugs pose to mental and physical health. For most of that time, Hart was set...
    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) reacted to former President Donald Trump’s lawyers playing clips of past rhetoric by Democrats at the Senate’s impeachment trial by stating that the Democrats were talking about fighting for immigrants, students, or people who don’t have jobs, but when Trump uses the word, “fight,” then “we know he means fight for me, fight for me, Trump.” Hirono said the former president’s lawyers just did “a montage of a lot of Democrats saying we’re going to fight for immigrants or fight for students or fight for people who are out of work. And when the president uses the word ‘fight,’ though, we know he means fight for me, fight for me, Trump.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    Microsoft President Brad Smith Microsoft has slammed Google after the tech giant threatened to pull out of Australia, saying it would 'never' make a similar threat. Google has warned it would remove its search function, the most popular in the world, if a new law requiring the tech giants to compensate media organisations is passed.  The proposed law, introduced to the Australian Parliament in December, will force Facebook and Google to negotiate fees with news companies whose stories appear on their platforms.  Google has claimed the law would 'break the way search works' and would mean the company has 'no choice' but to leave Australia.  Microsoft, which runs search engine Bing, on Wednesday backed the plan as it aims to erode Google's market dominance. 'While other tech companies may sometimes threaten to leave Australia, Microsoft will never make such a threat,' President Brad Smith said in a statement. 'We appreciate what Australia has long meant for Microsoft's growth as a company, and we are committed to supporting the country's national security and economic success.' Mr Smith said the company will allow...

    Donald Trump defended his previous claims that Joe Biden has referred to black American men as 'super predators' by insisting Sunday morning that his 'sources' told him the Democratic nominee has used the phrase. 'Joe Biden called Black Youth SUPER PREDATORS. They will NEVER like him, or vote for him. They are voting for 'TRUMP,'' the president tweeted Sunday morning. Just a few hours later he added in a second tweet on the subject: 'Joe Biden constantly used the term 'Super Predator' when referring to young Black Men, according to my sources.'
