    Now that the political Revolution that is Trump has manifested itself in the reality of the vote in both South Carolina and Nevada the agents of the political status quo are out in force. They are all busy constructing straw Trumps to knock down. They are recycling old stories that have already failed to defeat Trump. They are adamantly asserting their purity to a conservatism that somehow allowed them to vote for Dole, McCain, and Romney (the proud grandfather of Obamacare).

    A book written by a revered Italian geologist Mario Tozzi explains what could happen if it exploded this year. Tozzi's Pianeta Terra Ultimo Atto – which translates to Planet Earth, The Last Act – suggests the volcanic caldera may awaken in 2016 and have disastrous consequences for the rest of the globe. The author's book – set in 2019 – covers a scenario after the super volcano erupts between now and the end of the year. Tozzi envisages the volcano exploding and covering the United States – and potentially leading to catastrophic disaster around the world.

    he Super Bowl is an annual celebration of Just Guy Things: homoerotic tight pants, dude-on-dude grappling, sports, balls, brews, and chili. Conversely, the Super Bowl halftime show is an incredibly flamboyant tribute to all things over the top, featuring big-name celebrities, elaborate pyrotechnics, and some of the best wardrobes (and wardrobe malfunctions) this side of the 2001 VMAs. No one has ever adequately explained the pairing of these two inherently disparate spectacles, and it’s difficult to imagine the Venn diagram of dedicated sports enthusiasts and people who are psyched to watch an extended Bruno Mars medley. Nonetheless we, the non-sports...
  • Hawaii’s first satellite launch set for Tuesday (Liftoff 4:30pm HAST/9:30pm EST)

    U.S. military authorities have granted approval for liftoff Tuesday of a simplified satellite launcher from Hawaii on a test flight officials say will help drive down the costs of sending small spacecraft into orbit. Standing 67 feet tall and measuring 5 feet in diameter, the Super Strypi launch vehicle is based on a Cold War-era suborbital sounding rocket design, but with modern propulsion and a purpose-built launch pad at the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Missile Range Facility in Kauai, Hawaii. The rocket was supposed to blast off Oct. 29, but launch crews encountered issues in pre-flight processing that put the mission...

  • Astroquizzical: What happens when Betelgeuse explodes?

    Starts with a Bang! ^ | February 24, 2015 | Jillian Scudder
    Question: If Betelgeuse explodes right now, could we see it with naked eye? It is over 400 light years away, so you might think that people would see it long after it actually happens? Betelgeuse is already one of the brightest stars in the night sky, sitting somewhere around the 8th or 9th brightest star in the night sky. (These lists dont include the Sun, which is somewhat obviously always the brightest object in the sky.) It sits in the constellation Orion, along with a number of other bright stars, and makes up the left hand shoulder of the warrior....

    If you don't know your Roman numerals, the Super Bowl can be a confusing time. However, no one will be confused when Super Bowl L kicks off after the 2015 season because for one year only, the NFL will be making the switch from Roman numerals to standard numbers. That's right: Super Bowl L will be Super Bowl 50. The first-regular numbered Super Bowl will air on Feb. 7, 2016 on CBS.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio is world famous as "America's Toughest Sheriff". Inmates weak pink underwear, eat bologna sandwiches that cost only 40 cents per meal (and for which Joe charges them!) . In Summer inmates bake in Tent City, which recently celebrated its 20th year.When Sheriff Joe put up flags in prisoner's cells, he warned if any are defaced that inmate would get only bread and water for a full week -- and 38 inmates have been punished so far. But Joe also has a heart of gold. He spends a huge amount of time helping animals, giving indoor space to...

    With the Super Bowl XLVIII just days away, youd never know it from the New Jersey side of this two-part equation. Some lawmakers say the NFL hasnt endorsed any of its events, leaving New Jersey out of the spotlight and in the cold, CBS 2s Emily Smith reported Monday. While the big game is being held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., some Jersey leaders said they are worried that the league hasnt gotten the memo that this is not New York Citys Super Bowl. Its just not a feeling of its almost like not wanting to be...

    President Obama will give a live interview to CBS before it airs the Super Bowl on Sunday. At 4:30 pm, Obama will field questions from CBSs Scott Pelley, continuing a long-standing tradition of providing interviews to the network airing the NFL championship, usually the most-watched television event of the year. Last year, Obama spoke with Matt Lauer before NBC broadcast the big game. Pelley told The New Orleans Times-Picayune that he will talk pigskin with the president, but also has a range of "serious questions" to tackle.

    The voting is over, and so for the most part is the counting. The delegate math, I leave to others; lets take a look at how the popular vote has shaped up over the course of this primary season and what conclusions we can draw. First, the overall popular vote before Super Tuesday, on Super Tuesday, and to date.* In addition to listing the candidates individual vote totals, Ive classified them in three groups: the five conservative candidates (Santorum, Gingrich, Perry, Bachmann and Cain), the two moderate candidates (Romney and Hunstman) and the libertarian (Paul). While there will undoubtedly be...

Asked at a news conference if hed like to respond to Romneys comments calling Obama the most feckless president since Carter, Obama said: Good luck tonight. After the quip got laughs from the press gallery, Obama smiled and said, No, really. Really. Ten states will head to the polls for the March 6 Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, and Romney is expected to win a plurality of...
