New Jersey’s $77-billion public worker pension fund is considering dumping its Nike investments after Marty Barrett, a representative of retired police officers and firefighters, asked the council to consider divesting from its Nike holdings because of the controversial advertisement featuring Colin Kaepernick. Barrett said that Kaepernick’s protest disrespects members of the military and first responders who were killed on 9/11. The State Investment Council voted unanimously to review its holdings, which a spokeswoman for the Treasury Department said include 311,500 equity shares valued at $26 million and 20 million principal valued at $18 million.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
