Jon Stewart Finds Out Why Congress Is Hiding Instead Of Debating ISIS

While British lawmakers were called back into session to debate that nation’s involvement in military action against ISIS, U.S. lawmakers have been everywhere but Washington.

On TV, congressional leaders have said they would meet to debate the issues, but only if President Barack Obama asks.

As Jon Stewart learned on Monday night’s “Daily Show,” these politicians don’t actually need the president to call them into session to start debating.

So why are they hiding? Stewart found a rare bit of honesty from the most unlikely source: an actual member of Congress, who …read more

Mummy Brain Imprint Found Inside 2,000-Year-Old Egyptian Skull

Scientists are getting a rare look at the brain of a mummy thanks to an imprint left inside the skull of someone who lived more than 2,000 years ago in Egypt.

The mummy, found in 2010 with more than 50 others in the Kom al-Ahmar/Sharuna necropolis, is unique in that blood vessels of the brain were imprinted into the skull, according to Live Science.

President Obama's Goal Of Closing Guantanamo Bay Prison Stalled At The Pentagon

WASHINGTON (AP) — The transfer of prisoners out of Guantanamo Bay has ground to a halt amid a slow Pentagon approval process, causing deep frustration within the administration and raising doubts that President Barack Obama will be able to fulfill his campaign promise to close the offshore prison for terrorism suspects.

A detainee sent back to his native Algeria in March is the only prisoner to have moved out this year, beyond the controversial exchange of five Taliban members in return for long-held captive U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The slow pace is the result of the law that …read more

Hong Kong Protesters Set Wednesday Deadline For Government To Meet Demands For Reform

LOUISE WATT, Associated Press

HONG KONG (AP) — Pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong set a Wednesday deadline for a response from the government to meet their demands for reforms after spending another night blocking streets in an unprecedented show of civil disobedience.

A brief statement from the Occupy Central civil disobedience movement said it had set an Oct. 1 deadline for the city’s unpopular Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying to meet their demands for genuine democracy and for him to step down as leader of Hong Kong.

It said they would “announce new civil disobedience plans same day.”<br …read more

The Venture Capital System 'Simply Does Not Work For Women,' Study Finds

The Silicon Valley money machine only seems to work for men, a painful new study reveals.

Less than 3 percent of the 6,793 companies that received venture capital from 2011-2013 were headed by a woman, according to a study from Babson College released Tuesday. That means that out of nearly $51 billion in funding that startups received over those two years, a comparatively teeny $1.5 billion went to women-led ventures.

“The findings of this study, demonstrate it is not the women who need fixing; the model for venture capital that has been in place since the …read more
