  • Asteroid four times the size of the Empire State Building barreling toward Earth on May 27 [Sorry. Not SMOD]

    Fear not: the asteroid, named 7335 (1989 JA), will soundly miss our planet by about 2.5 million miles (4 million kilometers) — or nearly 10 times the average distance between Earth and the moon. Still, given the space rock's enormous size (1.1. miles, or 1.8 km, in diameter) and relatively close proximity to Earth, NASA has classified the asteroid as "potentially hazardous," meaning it could do enormous damage to our planet if its orbit ever changes and the rock impacts Earth. This asteroid is one of more than 29,000 near-Earth objects (NEOs) that NASA tracks each year. NEOs refer to...

    Earth's oceans are feeling the wrath of human-induced climate change. Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising and reefs are dying – and now, according to a new study published in Science Advances, the sea is losing its memory altogether.

    Sweeping social transformations occur during times of crisis. We are in such a predicament now, and transformative change may be coming to America whether we want it or not. It could define who we are as a nation for the remainder of the 21st Century. Whether America reaffirms itself as a beacon for freedom for the world or whether we become just another plot of ground in the new world order remains to be seen. The consequences for all Americans could be enormous, and especially so for Millennials. What crisis are we in, you ask? Well, consider the staggering debt...
  • NOT OVER YET Covid ‘super mutation’ may cause ‘devastating’ new outbreak & beat vaccines if we leave lockdown too soon, experts warn

    OVID could mutate into a new super variant which could beat vaccines, make people sicker and reinfect victims in a devastating new outbreak, leading experts have warned. Scientists told The Sun Online about the need to vaccinate as many people as possible and stick to the lockdown rules as it is feared the rapidly changing virus could overwhelm our current arsenal of vaccines. The experts hammered home the need to rob Covid of the rapid person-to-person transmission which helps it develop mutations. And they warned possible new variants in the future could make people sicker and re-infect people who had...
  • Getting Ready for Hyperinflation

    What is Hyperinflation?Historically, hyperinflation is often associated with wars, their aftermath, sociopolitical upheavals, or other crises that make it difficult for the government to tax and govern the population. But those are just the symptoms.Hyperinflation is a man-made disaster arising out of the collapse of the currency, and preparing for it is no different than preparing for a hurricane or tsunami. You may get a little bit of a warning, but you need to act quickly. This article covers the financial preparations that, if made before the disaster strikes, will provide you with additional layers of protection.Leading up to the...

    Say whatever you want about Donald J. Trump, but there is no one better on the planet who can send Democrats into apoplectic meltdown in a nanosecond than the 45th president of the United States. Such was the case on Friday when Trump joked with supporters at a rally in Macon, Georgia, that he wouldn’t “feel so good” if he lost the election to Joe Biden, and might have to “leave the country” if he does.

    GREENVILLE, SC—As Halloween approaches, haunted house attractions and extreme horror experiences are competing for the crown of "most horrifying haunted house in the country." According to horror enthusiasts, a new attraction called Maskless Murder Mansion has left the competition in the dust with a twisted new vision of horror: an old mansion filled with regular people who happen to not be wearing masks. "Yeah we know this is really messed up stuff," said Zach McDongle, owner and mastermind behind the attraction. "So far, no one has had the courage to make it all the way through." For anyone brave enough...

    NY Times ^ | OCTOBER 7, 2020 | Michael S. Schmidt and Katie Benner
    For decades, federal prosecutors have been told not to mount election fraud investigations in the final months before an election for fear they could depress voter turnout or erode confidence in the results. Now, the Justice Department has lifted that prohibition weeks before the presidential election. The move comes as President Trump and Attorney General William P. Barr have promoted a false narrative that voter fraud is rampant, potentially undermining Americans’ faith in the election. A Justice Department lawyer in Washington said in a memo to prosecutors on Friday that they could investigate suspicions of election fraud before votes are...

    Doctors at Walter Reed gave everyone good news on President Donald Trump’s health on Sunday after he went in for treatment for COVID-19. Well, one reporter didn’t think it was good news. A hot mic picked up one reporter saying, “That wasn’t as much fun as yesterday.” It’s like they wanted him to get it really bad (hopefully none of them hoped he would die) in order to say I TOLD YOU SO!

    House Democrats are launching an investigation into President Trump’s treatment of the Secret Service during his bout with the coronavirus. Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, accused Trump of disregarding the safety of his protective detail when he left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a short drive in his limousine to greet supporters who were outside the facility. Thompson called Trump’s Sunday night trip a “joyride” that risked the health and safety of the agents who had to accompany him on the trip. “So we can know more about how these events have affected the...

    No doubt about it. The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a godsend for the Republican Party. It's just what President Trump needed to come back from the dead. It gives him a chance to tilt the court to the far right for decades, with the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the bench. It energizes the Republican base. It locks up the Catholic vote. And, most importantly, it changes the subject! Nobody will talk about the coronavirus anymore. From now on, all they'll talk about is getting Barrett confirmed before Nov. 3. That's what Trump believes. That's...

    Real Clear Science ^ | December 12, 2012 | By Ross Pomeroy
    Calamitous portents abound, but I'd like to gloss over those fantastical predictions from zany whack jobs and focus solely on the forecast provided by one Sir Isaac Newton. After all, he was correct about gravity, the laws of motion, and the spectrum of white light -- heck -- why not about the end of the world? Contrary to what you might think, Newton was not always the supreme rationalist that we've come to revere. He actually wrote more about theology and alchemy than science and math combined. Newton voraciously sought out patterns and hidden codes within the Bible and other...

    Spurred by fears stemming from the coronavirus pandemic and racial justice protests, millions of Americans are buying guns — many of who are first-time gun owners, NPR reported. Phillip Levine, an economist and professor at Wellesley College, told NPR that he estimates that about 3 million more guns than usual have been sold since the pandemic started. And the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a gun industry trade group, said that 2020 is on track to be the biggest year ever for gun sales in the U.S. But before you rush out to by a gun, consider if that’s a wise...
  • WHO reports largest single-day increase in Coronavirus cases; Oklahoma sees new daily record

    The World Health Organization has reported the largest single-day increase in coronavirus cases by its count, at more than 183,000 new cases in the latest 24 hours. The UN health agency says Brazil led the way with 54,771 cases tallied and the US next at 36,617. Over 15,400 came in in India. Experts say rising case counts can reflect multiple factors including more widespread testing as well as broader infection. Overall in the pandemic, WHO has reported 8,708,008 cases — 183,020 in the last 24 hours — with 461,715 deaths worldwide, with a daily increase of 4,743. More than two-thirds...

    VIDEO Now that there will be a Trump rally in Tulsa with over 800,000 signed up to attend, the media has discovered that coronavirus is rising again. Of course, during the recent wave of protests with little to no social distancing that concern was pretty much absent. Oddly enough, the graph of the actual deaths from the virus as you can see paints a starkly contrasting picture to what is now being portrayed.

    A former top US health official has told Congress the country could face its "darkest winter in modern history" because of the coronavirus. Rick Bright led the government agency trying to develop a vaccine, but was removed from his post last month. He has previously said he was ousted from the job for raising concern over a treatment being touted by President Donald Trump. The US leader dismissed him as a "disgruntled" employee.

    Former CIA Director John Brennan said he is aghast by President Donald Trump's abuse of authority and the use of the intelligence and national security communities to retain power. In an interview on Thursday with MSNBC's Brian Williams and Nicolle Wallace, Brennan said the intel community is being exploited for political purposes by people who don't have the principles to lead the country and accused Trump of acting with a "despot's playbook." "I think our country is in very serious trouble," Brennan lamented. "When you have such blatant political corruption at the highest levels of the U.S. government, something I...
