    Python hunter Brian Hargrove, right, is helped by Marcos Fernandez, left, with the South Florida Water Management District, as they measure and weigh the 1,000th python caught in the Florida Everglades. HOMESTEAD — Florida is marking a milestone in its attempt to control an infestation of Burmese pythons in the Everglades. The state has been paying a select group of 25 hunters to catch and kill the invasive snakes on state lands in South Florida since March 2017. On Tuesday, the 1,000th python collected in that program was measured and weighed at the South Florida Water Management District's field office...

    Any Christian with terminal illness who believes in the afterlife, would embrace a spirit of forgiveness towards others, in the hope of receiving forgiveness from God. Our ability to receive forgiveness from God depends on our ability to forgive our fellow human beings. There are many Bible verses dealing with unforgiveness: https://www.openbible.info/topics/unforgiveness

    A federal judge has rejected special counsel Robert Mueller’s request to delay the first court hearing in a criminal case charging three Russian companies and 13 Russian citizens with using social media and other means to foment strife among Americans in advance of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In a brief order Saturday evening, U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich offered no explanation for her decision to deny a request prosecutors made Friday to put off the scheduled Wednesday arraignment for Concord Management and Consulting, one of the three firms charged in the case. The 13 people charged in the...

    The James Webb Space Telescope hits another snag. On anything that moves, from vehicles to rolling office chairs, you need to be wary of bolts rattling loose over time. Thread-locking fluids and tapes are a great way to make sure your suspect bolts stay where they should, and nyloc nuts can also keep components snug and secure. Northrop Grumman might need to look into something along these lines, because apparently "screws and washers" are falling off the spacecraft and sunshield it is building to carry NASA's James Webb Space Telescope. Space News reports that NASA's JWST program director, Greg Robinson,...
  • ‘Russians go after people with shady morals’, or how to capitalize on Russiagate

    The the list of what you can’t say about Russians is much shorter than the list of what you can say, one US senator proves in a new documentary on the hottest topic of year. Interviewed for a new documentary claiming to expose US President Donald Trump’s deep ties to Russia, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse took aim at “Russians” and their nasty tricks. “Russians have a particular type of mark who they go after,” Whitehouse said, explaining that Russians (just, in general?) like to target people with “shady morals” who are “amenable to bribery” and possess political connections. “I’ve just described...

    A memorial marking the location of a 1969 close encounter, known as "our nation's first off-world/UFO incident," is going to be moved. Again. During a recently conducted land survey, the town found that the memorial, as well as a bench and lighting decorating the area, is still on a town right-of-way easement and must be removed by the owner or the town will do so in May, according to Town Administrator Rhonda LaBombard... Reed, who has been the most vocal about what happened that night, said he is confused as to why the memorial's position is an issue because he...

    What is being described as a huge UFO mothership was caught on film in North Carolina, according to the Charlotte Observer.  An unnamed camerama caught the object hovering over rural fields close to Columbus, 85 miles west of Charlotte in Polk County, in the night sky. The black and white video was filmed on April 3 and runs nearly five minutes. The YouTube footage released by The UFO Institute shows a v-shaped craft lit by six hovering lights, accompanied by a humming sound and the voice of the cameraman pondering “what the heck those lights are.” "Whatever it is, it...

    The coin shows the moment the craft lifted from the rock, with a figure lying on the ground with a hand in the air, as if to ward something off. In the dark, the craft on the coin glows, as does the gas coming from the ship. The coin is ovoid and uses more colours than traditionally found in a coin, said Stan. "They sent me a proof that had their original thought, which was kind of cute," said Stan. "Originally, it was going to have alien eyes on it, so it looked like the shape of an alien head."

    In 2016, NASA sequenced DNA in space for the first time, but alien life, we may soon discover, may be vastly different on other planets and moons, particularly as we expand our efforts to explore ocean worlds with our solar system and beyond. “Most strategies for life detection rely upon finding features known to be associated with Earth's life, such as particular classes of molecules,” the researchers wrote. DNA and RNA are the building blocks of life on Earth, but the molecules of life might differ substantially on another planet. A new paper by scientists at Georgetown University, published online...

    Two pilots on different aircraft reported having close encounters with a mysterious object flying high above Arizona last month, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The sightings occurred within minutes of each other on the afternoon of Feb. 24, some 40,000 feet above southern Arizona near the New Mexico border. ABC News obtained the audio recording of the conversation between the pilots and the Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control Center, released by the FAA.

    Are we about to be nuked? Is it possible that Kim Jong Un just sent his family and various favored people out of the country to China on that heavily armored train? Could he do a first strike nuke attack, possibly supplemented with Chinese nukes sent back on the train? We could be counted on to respond, pretty much vaporizing North Korea. Could the Chinese space station that is coming down be a smokescreen to explain why there is a bunch of stuff entering our atmosphere and heading to earth? What do you all think?

    The rocketeer launched himself about 1,875 feet into the air on Saturday, March 24, aboard his Liberty One rocket before he landed in the Mojave Desert. Hughes sustained some bruises and had a minor back injury from the hard landing. His steam-powered rocket was also damaged but he came down in one piece. It was also finally mission accomplished after two failed attempts. "I'm tired of people saying I chickened out and didn't build a rocket," he said. I manned up and did it."

    Tesla employees say the company is manufacturing a high ratio of flawed parts and vehicles that need rework and repairs. The electrical vehicle maker has had to ship some flawed parts to remanufacturing facilities to avoid scrapping them, rather than fixing them in-line, according to sources; Tesla denies this. CEO Elon Musk is under pressure to ramp up production of the Model 3 sedan, Tesla's first mass-market electric vehicle. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Luxury automaker Tesla is manufacturing a surprisingly high ratio of flawed parts and vehicles, according to several current and former employees, leading to more rework and repairs than can be...

    The motto "always be prepared" is wise advice, but one man is taking the mantra to the max. He's got former military bunkers spanning a space that is three-quarters the size of Manhattan, and is selling them to survivalists. Survivalists and so-called "preppers" are often the brunt of jokes, with insults ranging from "paranoid" to "weird" and everything in between. But Robert Vicino couldn't disagree more. He runs a company which is currently focused on transforming military bunkers into doomsday shelters. The shelters are in Middle of Nowhere, USA, otherwise known as Edgemont, South Dakota. It's barely on the map,...
