Federal Government Funds University Programs Promoting Anti-American Ideologies

Joe Biden’s Department of Education (DOE) was called out by Just the News for the outlet’s weekly award for wasteful spending of taxpayer money. DOE was singled out for a program that allocates $2.9 million to 11 Middle East Studies Centers (MESCs) that are affiliated with American universities. The centers promote leftist political causes according to an investigative report by watchdog group

OpenTheBooks based its research on an investigation by the National Association of Scholars (NAS) that found the MESCs have “veered from their purpose, now pushing overtly anti-West ideologies focusing on social issues such as Islamophobia and immigration at the university level, and even pushing critical race theory to K–12 educators.”

The NAS report is titled “Hijacked: The Capture of America’s Middle East Studies Centers.”

Some of America’s most prestigious universities were named by NAS for hosting MESCs pressing the radical instruction, including Columbia University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, New York University, the University of North Carolina, Duke University, and the University of Chicago.

NAS analyzed the 11 MESCs out of 50 that operate at universities nationwide that have been designated as “National Resource Centers.” That designation entitles those programs to receive federal funding. Each of those 11 MESCs receive $260,000 annually from the DOE.

MESCs were designed to facilitate the study of Middle Eastern politics, language, and culture. NAS found in its research that the centers “have since shifted their focus to promoting left-wing ideologies.”

NAS senior research associate Neetu Arnold said in a statement that MESCs “today play fast and loose with objective truth.” He added that even though MESC bias “has been documented for years, it’s time for taxpayers to be taken off the hook for these activist centers.”

Neetu wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that his research indicates that National Resource Centers in the Middle East are often involved in “efforts that promote sympathy for illegal immigration and portray borders as inherently immoral.”

Just the News reported that DOE failed to respond to a request for comment on its story regarding the use of millions of taxpayer dollars on leftist and anti-American MESCs.

Nolte: Heating Oil Already Being Rationed in Joe Biden’s America

In America.

We have natural resources so vast in this country, enough to power America for hundreds of years, and we’re not only rationing oil, we’re importing oil.

And the only reason this is happening is that Democrats want it to happen.

Why does cold weather make me need to pee?

It can be rather annoying, but when we're exposed to cold temperatures, we more frequently feel the urge to use the bathroom. But why and what is considered normal as the weather changes?

During winter, people tend to layer up to keep their body nice and toasty. But when nature calls, it can be quite an ordeal to get out of some of those clothes. Unfortunately, a lot of people feel like their bladder gets full faster when it’s cold outside.

You might be dressed accordingly for the cold temperatures in your area, but that doesn’t mean your body isn’t going to react to the freezing winter weather. Having to urinate more often in the winter is completely normal. And there's actually a name for it. It's a condition called cold diuresis.

The ‘cold diuresis’ phenomenon
When you expose your body to the cold to get from one place to another or to take part in cold weather activities, your blood vessels naturally constrict. This happens so that your body can direct blood flow to your vital organs as a way to maintain warmth in those areas - a process called?"peripheral vasoconstriction," according to Cleveland Clinic.

Your kidneys are responsible for creating urine as a way to filter out waste from your blood. On an average temperature day, your body will usually produce about 1 to 2 quarts of urine. Cold weather will result in your body needing to filter more blood than normal as a greater volume of blood rushes to your vital organs at a higher frequency. This results in you having to pee more often. Sure, it’s an annoying process, but rest assured that it's perfectly normal.

There doesn't appear to be any set temperature that will induce cold diuresis, since age, body composition, diet, and even posture can influence whether or not it will occur.

The hypothermia connection
Even though cold diuresis is normal, it is still a good idea to stay aware of when you need to urinate if you are in the middle of a winter outdoor activity. Cold diuresis is also the body’s way of preserving heat when it senses you may be in danger of hypothermia. That's why medical experts believe that an increased need to use the bathroom can be one of the first warning signs of hypothermia - a life-threatening condition that causes your body to lose too much heat.

It can result in shivering, confusion, slurred speech, shortness of breath and death. It's important to get to a warm, dry location quickly and seek medical attention immediately, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Rick Curtis, director of Princeton University's Outdoor Action Program, says watch for the "-umbles" - stumbles, mumbles, fumbles, and grumbles that show changes in motor coordination and levels of consciousness.

It might be tempting to drink less water or skip a bathroom break. However, drinking less water is not a healthy alternative and neither is holding it for long periods of time. You are probably going to make yourself pretty uncomfortable and could cause a urinary tract infection to develop. This will cause a whole new set of problems that you’ll have to deal with that are a lot more annoying than another bathroom break.

Also, since your body is using a great deal more fluid and you’re having to use the bathroom more, make sure that you are replenishing these fluids so you don’t get dehydrated. It might not be warm outside, but that doesn’t mean you are guaranteed to retain your fluids.

You should also remember to drink extra water when you come in from the cold, because even though you probably didn’t sweat, you may still have lost too much fluid from the effects of cold diuresis.

If you’re planning on any outdoor activity this winter, check your AccuWeather app for the latest weather updates in your area. You’ll be able to dress accordingly and know exactly what weather to expect so you don’t get dangerously cold.
