    Joe Biden’s reign as US president is due to get off to a rocky start – a barrage of asteroids are set to make “close approaches” to our planet as the Democrat takes the oath of office on Wednesday. NASA has identified six asteroids that will blaze past Earth on inauguration day. The space agency labelled the plethora of space rocks as Near Earth Objects (NEOs), meaning they warrant close scrutiny. “NEOs are comets and asteroids that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter the Earth’s neighbourhood,” NASA’s Jet Propulsion...

    China issued sharp warnings to the U.S. and Taiwan on Monday, reminding both governments not to take its threats lightly in the latest round of escalating war talk from Beijing. Comments by the Chinese foreign ministry and a Communist Party newspaper came amid a Reuters report of an unannounced visit to Taipei on Sunday by Rear Admiral Michael Studeman, an intelligence director with Indo-Pacific Command. The trip, which was confirmed by President Tsai Ing-wen's government in a vague statement, is the third known visit to democratic Taiwan by a high-ranking U.S. official since August.

    Viruses jumping from animals to humans have been the starting point of numerous outbreaks, from Ebola to Zika. Given the similarity of SARS-CoV-2 to coronaviruses found in bats, this probably marked the beginning of COVID-19 too. We know that viruses have passed from animals to humans throughout history, and will continue to do so. But the factors that influence the geographical origin of these events is less clear, despite being highly important. Knowing where they occur can help us understand the factors behind a virus crossing species, in particular, by looking at the traits of viruses circulating in the ecosystem...

    Doom is known as the game that can be played on just about anything. Watches, phones, calculators, and other weird stuff. It can pretty much work on anything that has a screen and even things that don’t really have “screens”. Twitter user Foone got noticed on Twitter after getting a video of Doom to display on a pregnancy test… but it wasn’t playable. After enough curiosity, they now have Doom playable on a pregnancy test stick. Yes, the little thing you pee on to see if you have to sacrifice the next 18+ years of your life can now be...

    A Florida couple was jailed for allegedly breaking a mandatory quarantine order after they tested positive for the coronavirus, local officials said Thursday. Jose Antonio Freire Interian, 24, and Yohana Anahi Gonzalez, 27, were arrested Wednesday evening at their Key West apartment and taken to the Stock Island Detention Center, authorities said. The Florida Department of Health in Monroe County had issued an isolation order on July 21 to the pair, instructing them to stay at home for 14 days and wear masks around others, The Miami Herald reported. But neighbors complained that the carefree couple had been breaking the...

    The SARS-CoV-2 virus, which has caused the COVID-19 pandemic, has evolved and divided into two different groups, according to the latest study of the National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology. Professor Lê Thị Quỳnh Mai, deputy director of the institute said the scientists had conducted the study after it cultivated and isolated the virus since Việt Nam recorded the first people positive with the virus. Mai said at first, patients mostly returned from Asian countries but now the patients mostly had been in European countries. The virus Việt Nam isolated in COVID-19 patients coming from Europe was found to be...

    French health authorities reported a record 499 new deaths from coronavirus on Tuesday, taking the total to 3,523, an increase of 17 percent in the past 24 hours. It was the third consecutive day that the rate of deaths accelerated in France, which is now in its third week of lockdown to try to slow the spread of the virus. The daily government tally only accounts for those dying in hospital but authorities say they will very soon be able to compile data on deaths in retirement homes, which is likely to result in a big increase in registered fatalities....

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - A super PAC supporting former Vice President Joe Biden’s White House bid is urging donors to “dig deep right now” into their pockets and is warning that if Biden’s campaign collapses, Democrats could face “a doomsday scenario.” The memo from the Unite the Country super PAC -- seen as a signal of deep concerns among Biden supporters about the former vice president’s White House prospects -- warned that “donors hedging their bets on Biden because of [Mike] Bloomberg could be creating a doomsday scenario for the Democrats everywhere.” **SNIP** The memo, written by Unite the Country treasurer...

    (CNN)The Democratic 2020 crusade to oust President Donald Trump could not have got off to a more disastrous and embarrassing start. The party couldn't even deliver a first-in-the-nation election night winner after a vote-reporting debacle in Iowa — where candidates spent months and millions of dollars vying for a glittering opening prize in their nominating duel. "Iowa, you have shocked the nation," said former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg. It was a bold attempt to declare victory in the absence of a result, but the 38-year-old inadvertently cast an ironic judgment on a political train wreck. The big Hawkeye...

    LUTON, England -- At Bruderer UK, a small firm selling metal-stamping machines from an industrial estate just north of London, business kicked into high gear right after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s big election win last month. Clients, including the Royal Mint which uses Bruderer equipment to make coins, at last knew for sure that Britain would quit the European Union on Jan. 31. Many have revived plans that had long been on hold. “For three years we were stuck in a rut of indecisiveness,” Bruderer UK managing director Adrian Haller said. “Once the election happened, there was a massive sigh...

  • Now the Pentagon tells Bush: climate change will destroy us (2004. Britain will be 'Siberian' in less than 20 years)

    the guardian ^ | 2-21-2004 | Mark Townsend, paul harris
    A secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs and obtained by The Observer, warns that major European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a 'Siberian' climate by 2020. Nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world. The document predicts that abrupt climate change could bring the planet to the edge of anarchy as countries develop a nuclear threat to defend and secure dwindling food, water and energy supplies. The threat to global stability vastly eclipses that of terrorism, say the few experts privy to its contents.

    ROME–When Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg was 11 years old, her body had started to shut down due to severe self-starvation tied to debilitating depression. She spoke to almost no one but her immediate family. She was afraid of crowds. She was lost in her own world, and the world very nearly lost her. But thanks to the formal diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome coupled with high-functioning autism and obsessive compulsive disorder, the now-16-year-old Swede has become quite literally the poster child for the generation that will have to deal with the destruction of our planet. Once she started receiving...

    You may not like Trump and I don’t either. But you need to recognize the genius of his game. Yes he is a narcissistic, immature serial liar, racist, sexist molester of women and opportunist. But guess what? He is still president. Yes he stands with America’s adversaries against American intelligence agencies, insults war heroes, tells people to go back to where they came from and uses his position to make American government his personal piggy bank. But it’s working. You have to understand Trump is not using a standard of right and wrong. That is what most people miss. He...

    Sky watchers will welcome the New Year with an exciting phenomenon: a rare Super Blood Wolf Moon that will coincide with a total lunar eclipse. Another total lunar eclipse is happening almost a year after 2018 Super Blue Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, only that it will not be a "blue" one this time around. The total lunar eclipse will be witnessed on the evening of Jan. 20 to 21 wherein the rare Super Blood Wolf Moon is going to pass through the northern half of Earth's shadow, according to meteorologist Scott Sutherland who revealed the news through The Weather Network....

    Doomba is basically just a plug-in for Whitehouse’s own (far more useful) Noesis tool, which is used to convert between different model, image, and animation formats — for example, if you’re a game designer who needs to convert a model from one platform to another without redesigning things from scratch. Except in this case, it’s taking the image data from a Roomba and converting it (and by extension, the living room that the map is based on) into one of the unholy caverns of hell for you to slaughter endless demonic hordes in. And while the tool is meant for...
