Open Thread: Scottish Independence Referendum Results

Open Thread: Scottish Independence Referendum Results

The polls have closed in Scotland, and the results will soon be coming in. The time of reckoning for the United Kingdom is upon us, and a 307 year old ...

Scotland and the end of centralization

Mark Leonard at Reuters has some interesting thoughts about how the Scottish independence vote could be “the canary in the independence coal mine,” a harbinger of both statehood movements and political trends in “many nations that do not face imminent break-up – from America to Zambia.”  He specifies four of those trends as a desire for self-government that trumps economic interests, resurgent nationalism (which he | Read More »

Other Western nations have also used this to great effect over the years as well. Why bear the political cost of getting | Read More »

Science, Ethics and Neil deGrasse Tyson

Image Credit: Fajar Sullivan Corporation It’s a really good thing Neil deGrasse Tyson hosts Cosmos rather than performing cost estimates. You can say “Billions and billions and billions!” to awe the easily-impressed rubes watching Cosmos and write it off as a ROM. In Cost Estimation, this is referred to as an onagerous estimate.* It seems he should stick to schlocky, public, propaganda-laden !SCIENCE! rather than | Read More »
