70 Nobel laureates sign open letter endorsing Hillary Clinton

Some of the world’s leading experts in science, medicine, and economics have publicly thrown their support behind Hillary Clinton this Tuesday, arguing that her election is crucial if a government based on the Constitution is to be preserved.

In an open letter signed by 70 Nobel laureates, the signatories say that Clinton is the best candidate to help advance the ever-evolving fields of science and technology. Although the letter didn’t mention GOP nominee Donald Trump by name, it hinted that his rhetoric shows a lack of understanding of scientific knowledge could damage America’s standing in the world.

“We need a president who will support and advance policies that will enable science and technology to flourish in our country and to provide the basis of important policy decisions,” they wrote.

According to the New York Times, the letter’s signatories include such prominent names such as the chemist Peter Agre, the economist Robert J. Shiller and the physicist Robert Woodrow Wilson.

The fact that the Nobel laureates are backing Mrs. Clinton does not come as a big surprise, as academics overwhelmingly tend to lean Democratic.

In 2012, 68 winners of the prize backed President Obama over Mitt Romney. Four years earlier, 76 winners supported Mr. Obama over Senator John McCain.

This year, the group of luminaries made clear that the stakes of the election are especially high.

“The coming presidential election will have profound consequences for the future of our country and the world,” the letter concludes.

    I’m just trying to start-up a small blog page, primarily to keep a few short stories I’ve truly written and get reviews, but also for several other blog-type activities. This refuse to do myself any good merely can’t obtain my words where people can read all of them… Blogspot can be preferred, yet anything enabling advertising would be fine. I might want to monetise eventually, and wordpress seems to dissuade that, because I understand their particular terms of use..

    Can you really make a spoiler switch in blogger blog posts? I don’t know javascript and understand very basic html only. I’ve truly tried duplicating snippets of javascript into my articles to try but most of them doesn’t work. Some only works in the create post window but after publishing it doesn’t function anymore. Many buttons just does nothing after getting clicked. Any kind of solutions?.
