- Before Milo Yiannopoulos gained (and lost) a Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) invitation, a book deal and a job, the now-former Breitbart News writer had already said and written many offensive things🔹 His Breitbart archives contain a regular stream of articles arguing all sorts of things designed to demean and offend: that feminism makes women ugly, that he would prefer it if teenagers self-harmed rather than discuss trans issues on Tumblr, and that women will be happy only if we “un-invent” the birth control pill and the washing machine🔹 None of these things stopped him from becoming a voice that CPAC felt was of value to their movement on free-speech grounds🔹 About 96 hours after his appearance on Bill Maher’s “Real Time” program, Yiannopoulos started to take more considerable steps toward leaving his alt-right adjacency and entering into the mainstream conservative discussion🔹 Then, he became a castaway after a series of videos were shared online showing examples of his past comments on pedophilia and consent🔹 The fallout was considerable, and the backlash that followed had its effect. Yiannopoulos resigned from Breitbart, lost his book deal with Simon & Schuster, and his invitation to speak at CPAC was rescinded🔹 Click the link in our bio to read about the events that led to Yiannopoulos's downward spiral 🔹 (Photo by Getty) #Milo #Yiannopoulos #MiloYiannopoulos #conservative #politics #cpac

- Goodbye Bao Bao!🐼 The 3-year-old panda born at the National Zoo in Washington D.C. is leaving for the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda🔹 Thousands of visitors flooded the zoo recently leading up to her departure. Eager spectators from around the world hoped to say their own goodbyes as they caught their last glimpse of the giant panda🔹 Although the National Zoo has had pandas since 1972, Bao Bao is only the second surviving one born there; her older brother Tai Shan moved to China in 2010🔹 She leaves her family behind, including younger brother Bei Bei, but she has older brother Tai Shan waiting for her🔹 “I’m sad but happy,” one spectator said. “It’s like sending a kid off to college. . . . What we all want for her is to perpetuate the species and have beautiful little cubbies. But it’s hard to watch her go.”🔹 On her 16-hour nonstop flight, courtesy of FedEx, Bao Bao will be accompanied by a veterinarian as well as a panda keeper who held her when she was a day-old cub🔹 (Photos by @voisins) #panda #giantpanda #baobao #goodbye #nationalzoo #zoo #animal #animals #cute #bamboo #china

- This is what a panda looks like when she dances for breakfast. Bao Bao, a 3-year-old giant panda, can hear keepers moving bamboo on the other side of this wall at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in Washington, D.C.🔹 She will soon have to get used to a new routine. On Feb. 21, she’s leaving for China for breeding and conservation🔹 The move is part of a long-standing arrangement with China, whereby any giant panda cubs born in the United States must go to China around age 4. China owns all giant pandas in the United States and leases them to American zoos🔹 Bao Bao is the second giant panda to be shipped to China from the National Zoo. The first was Tai Shan, a male, who was born in 2005 and, to the dismay of panda fanatics, moved to China in 2010🔹 After she was born in 2013, she was named Bao Bao, which means “precious” or “treasure” in Chinese🔹 The National Zoo has three other giant pandas: a male cub, Bei Bei, 1; an adult female, Mei Xiang, 18; and an adult male, Tian Tian, 19🔹 Click the link in our bio to go behind the scenes to see how Bao Bao is preparing for her new chapter in China (Video by @leekpowell/Washington Post) #panda #pandas #animal #animals #cute #dance #dancing #bamboo #china #usa #nationalzoo #zoo #cub #dc

- Senate Republicans voted to silence Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) for a speech opposing attorney general nominee Jeff Sessions, striking down her words for calling into question the Alabama senator’s character🔹 In an extraordinarily rare move, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) interrupted Warren’s speech in a near-empty chamber and said that she had breached Senate rules by reading past statements against Sessions from figures such as the late senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) and the late Coretta Scott King🔹 In setting up the votes to rebuke Warren, McConnell specifically cited portions of a letter that King, the widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., wrote to the Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to Sessions’s 1986 nomination to be a federal judge🔹 “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens,” King wrote, referencing controversial prosecutions at the time that Sessions served as the U.S. attorney for Alabama🔹 “I am surprised that the words of Coretta Scott King are not suitable for debate in the United States Senate,” Warren said after McConnell’s motion🔹 Warrant later tweeted her stance against Sessions after she was banned. It was the latest clash in the increasingly hostile debate over confirming President Trump’s Cabinet, during which Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to force through nominees without proper vetting🔹https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/powerpost/wp/2017/02/07/republicans-vote-to-rebuke-elizabeth-warren-for-impugning-sessionss-character/?tid=sm_ig&utm_term=.0d9f27ffb75c (Photo by Astrid Riecken/For The Washington Post) #politics #warren #elizabethwarren #jeffsessions #attorneygeneral #AG #government #trump

- President Trump announced that he will nominate Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. Gorsuch would replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia who passed away in 2016🔹 Gorsuch, 49, seemed the most naturally equipped for his spot on President Trump’s short¬list of potential Supreme Court nominees🔹 Those who know Gorsuch and have studied his decade of solidly conservative opinions on the U.S. Court of Appeals said he resembles the late Justice Antonin Scalia than the more moderate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy🔹 Like Scalia, Gorsuch is a proponent of originalism — meaning that judges should attempt to interpret the words of the Constitution as they were understood at the time they were written — and a textualist who considers only the words of the law being reviewed, not legislators’ intent or the consequences of the decision🔹 Gorsuch would like to curb the deference that courts give to federal agencies and is most noted for a strong defense of religious exemptions in cases brought by private companies and religious nonprofit groups objecting to the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act🔹 (Graphic by Darla Cameron) #Trump #DonaldTrump #SupremeCourt #justice #politics

- Intense protests erupted from coast to coast over the weekend as groups protested President Trump’s executive order that temporarily banned migrants from seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world🔹 Through Saturday and Sunday, tens of thousands of people protested his immigration order outside the gates of the White House, in Boston’s Copley Square, in New York’s Battery Park and various airport terminals🔹 Trump has continued to adamantly defend his immigration order. In a series of recent tweets, Trump sought to minimize its impact on travelers following confusion, angst and two days of country-wide protests since he signed the order🔹 “Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning,” Trump tweeted. “Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage…..protesters and the tears of Senator Schumer.”🔹 Trump’s order has already sparked quick judicial action. Four federal judges put various holds on the ban, and other courts are expected to consider similar stays, with more legal challenges likely to come🔹 A group of 16 state attorneys general said they believe the executive order is unconstitutional, presaging what could be an intense round of legal action against it🔹 (Video by @olivercontreras/The Washington Post) #Trump #DonaldTrump #protest #protests #airports #dc #washingtondc #whitehouse #immigrants #immigration #refugee #refugees

- Somewhere in the North Pacific Ocean there is a male whale whose frequency is far higher than most fin and blue whales. He is, allegedly, the Loneliest Whale in the World🔹 The discovery of this whale’s frequency dates back to 1989. William Watkins discovered the unexpected signal from the whale in the North Pacific🔹 The whale’s signal traveled in much the same way and area as blue and fin whales in the region, but this particular whale was vocalizing on an entirely different frequency: 52 hertz (Hz). The frequency was still profoundly deep by human standards but far higher than the 15-to-25-Hz range of most blues and fins🔹 Watkins’s team’s findings were published in the journal Deep Sea Research in 2004 and the findings were picked up and spread by the media🔹 As media coverage on the whale began to grow, a common theme began to form: If the whale was communicating at a different frequency than others of its kind, then could others even hear it? Was this whale swimming across the North Pacific, calling into a void and hearing nothing back in return? Was it actually lonely?🔹 Click the link in our bio to learn more about this mystery and how a documentary filmmaker and a team of scientists combined forces to search for this whale🔹 (Animation and illustration by Phil Borst) #whale #whales #bluewhale #finwhale #sea #ocean #mammal #animal #animals #wildlife #lonely #science #scientists
