Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s ongoing dust-up over the future of the GOP’s foreign policy has raised several important issues. Unfortunately, Perry has used the opportunity to raise the spectre of “isolatonism” when discussing Paul’s policy outlook.
As we at Cato have …
This is actually a pretty good “crash course” on the Israel-Palestine Conflict. Though I’m sure extremists on both sides would have issue with things it says or doesn’t include, I recommend it to anyone that is curious about what is going on over there and the history behind it.

Dunkleosteus terrelli boasted a 20-foot-long body covered with bony plates of armor. Fossil records indicate that this huge fish, one of the first large jawed vertebrates in the ocean, was an aggressive predator.
The razor-sharp edges of bones in this animal’s jaws served as cutters. As they rubbed against each other, the opposing jaw blades acted like self-sharpening shears. These bones continued to grow as they were worn down by use.
Dunkleosteus is located in the Museum’s Hall of Vertebrate Origins.
Over at Smarter Every Day, Destin has a new video, this time about how fish eat, which involves some pretty awesome physics. Instead of accelerating their entire body to close the distance to prey, fish thrust their jaws forward. As they do, they open their mouth, expanding the volume there and lowering the pressure. This causes water to flow into their mouth, pulling the prey with it. But the water has momentum, which would push the fish backward. To prevent this, the fish then opens its gills, allowing the water to rush back out while trapping the prey in its mouth. Be sure to check out Destin’s video so that you can see the process in high-speed. (Video credit: Smarter Every Day)
