    If you think government and corporations have too much power now, just wait until they take control of the world’s number one energy source: the sun.Evil Mr. Rogers impersonator, Bill Gates is one of the richest billionaires on the planet. He should be most famous for being a very cutthroat businessman and stealing ideas from people like Steve Jobs about computers and operating systems while using his connections and marketing to take over the PC market a few decades ago. However, for some inexplicable reason, he is also now seen as the world’s savior–for everything.Whether it comes to climate change...

    Posted on February 25, 2021February 25, 2021 by Evan GoughWhat a Geologist Sees When They Look at Perseverance’s Landing SiteGeologists love fieldwork. They love getting their specialized hammers and chisels into seams in the rock, exposing unweathered surfaces and teasing out the rock’s secrets. Mars would be the ultimate field trip for many of them, but sadly, that’s not possible.Instead, we’ve sent the Perseverance rover on the field trip. But if a geologist were along for the ride, what would it look like to them?Geologists tell us there’s no substitute for fieldwork. Jezero Crater is where Perseverance is going on...

    In 2019, the California Court of Appeal, 1st Appellate District, ruled that a police offer may always enter a suspect's home without a warrant if the officer is in pursuit of the suspect and has probable cause to believe that the suspect has committed a misdemeanor. This week, the U.S. Supreme Court considered whether that ruling should be overturned.Justice Neil Gorsuch seemed to have a problem with the lower court's decision. Under the common law, Gorsuch pointed out during oral arguments in Lange v. California, the police did not "have the power to enter the home in pursuit of any...

  • Pompeii's most amazing fresco returns to its former glory! Scientists use lasers to remove stains on stunning 2,000-year-old painting of a hunting scene in the garden of the House of the Ceii

    Daily Mail UK ^ | Ian Randall
    A stunning fresco in the garden of Pompeii's Casa dei Ceii (House of the Ceii) has been painstakingly laser-cleaned and touched up with new paint by expert restorers. The artwork — of hunting scenes — was painted in the so-called 'Third' or 'Ornate' Pompeii style, which was popular around 20–10 BC and featured vibrant colours. Poor maintenance since the house was dug up in 1913–14 saw the hunting fresco and others deteriorate, particularly at the bottom, which is more vulnerable to humidity. The main section of the fresco depicts a lion pursuing a bull, a leopard pouncing on sheep and...

    Explanation: On a mission to explore the inner heliosphere and solar corona, on July 11, 2020 the Wide-field Imager on board NASA's Parker Solar Probe captured this stunning view of the nightside of Venus at distance of about 12,400 kilometers (7,693 miles). The spacecraft was making the third of seven gravity-assist flybys of the inner planet. The gravity-asssist flybys are designed to use the approach to Venus to help the probe alter its orbit to ultimately come within 6 million kilometers (4 million miles) of the solar surface in late 2025. A surprising image, the side-looking camera seems to peer...

    “Unprecedented,” say experts. Look at the number of earthquakes in the last 48 hours! Southwestern Iceland was rocked by a series of earthquakes Wednesday. According to geological experts, the epicenter of the main quake was located near Mt. Keilir, roughly 30 km (19 miles) south of the capital Reykjavik. Experts say shocks from the quake, which registered 5.7 in magnitude, sparked increased volcanic activity, triggering a number of aftershocks registering over 4.0 for hours after the initial quake hit. “I’ve never experienced or felt so many strong earthquakes in such a short period of time. It’s unusual,” Icelandic Meteorological...

    I was very happy to find out my kid's Catholic school would have in-person classes this year. Public schools throughout the region have telecommunting students, which amounts to simply cancelling lessons... at least here anyway. I'm very disturbed to find my son has been suffering headaches, dizziness, and attention troubles that seem to disappear when he's done with the masks. Naturally, I blame masking. So far, school officials don't, of course. Anyone else have kids being masked for school?
