  • Earth’s magnetic poles are set to swap places - and we're totally unprepared [Isaiah 24]

    Earth’s magnetic field surrounds our planet like an invisible force field - protecting life from harmful solar radiation by deflecting charged particles away. Far from being constant, this field is continuously changing. Indeed, our planet's history includes at least several hundred global magnetic reversals, where north and south magnetic poles swap places. So when’s the next one happening and how will it affect life on Earth? During a reversal the magnetic field won’t be zero, but will assume a weaker and more complex form. It may fall to 10 percent of the present-day strength and have magnetic poles at the...

  • Poll: Do you agree with Trump's ban on Muslims entering U.S.?

    12/08/2015 8:57:06 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 108 replies
    Presidential candidate Donald Trump is standing behind his proposal to prevent Muslims from entering the United States. While he says it would be a temporary prohibition, he cites a precedent for it — FDR's proclamation against some immigration during World War II. Trump told CNN Tuesday the nation faces "many more World Trade Centers" if its leaders don't take action against Islamic terrorists, many of whom are already in the country. While he provided few details and wouldn't say how long such a ban would last, he faulted President Barack Obama for not declaring that the U.S. is "at war...
  • Astronomy Picture of the Day -- When Vega is North

    NASA ^ | May 08, 2015 | (see photo credit)
    Explanation: In only about 12,000 years Vega will be the North Star, the closest bright star to our fair planet's North Celestial Pole. By then, when you fix your camera to a tripod long exposures of the night sky will show the concentric arcs of star trails centered on a point near Vega as Earth rotates on its axis. Of course, presently the bright star conveniently near the North Celestial Pole is Polaris, but that will change as the Earth's axis of rotation precesses, like the wobble of a spinning top with a precession period of about 26,000 years. If...

    Swedish lunch lady in pole dance protestPublished: 28 Oct 11 08:26 CET Students and staff at a school near Uppsala in eastern Sweden were shocked to see one of the school cafeteria staff performing an erotic pole dance in response to complaints about inedible food. “One of the canteen ladies removed her apron, unzipped her trousers, let down her hair and started moving up and down against a pole like a pole dancer,” said principal Per Rostgaard Evald to local paper Upsala Nya Tidning (UNT). The food at the local school in the little town of Östhammar, north of Uppsala,...

Fullilove, regional director for NBC-LEO, said Tuesday that she engaged in dancing -- including pole dancing -- on a river cruise during the group's gathering in Memphis.

    There are many kinds of truth. Al Gore was poleaxed by an inconvenient one yesterday. The former US Vice-President, who became an unlikely figurehead for the green movement after narrating the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, became entangled in a new climate change “spin” row. Mr Gore, speaking at the Copenhagen climate change summit, stated the latest research showed that the Arctic could be completely ice-free in five years. In his speech, Mr Gore told the conference: “These figures are fresh. Some of the models suggest to Dr [Wieslav] Maslowski that there is a 75 per cent chance that the...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Starry-eyed children writing letters to the jolly man at the North Pole this holiday season likely won't get a response from Santa Claus or his helpers. The U.S. Postal Service is dropping a popular national program begun in 1954 in the small Alaska town of North Pole, where volunteers open and respond to thousands of letters addressed to Santa each year. Replies come with North Pole postmarks. Last year, a postal worker in Maryland recognized an Operation Santa volunteer there as a registered sex offender.

    Cosmologists Probe Mystery Of Dark Energy With South Pole Telescope ScienceDaily (Apr. 3, 2008) — Something is pulling the universe apart. What is it, and where will it take us from here? Scientists at the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, University of Chicago, seek answers to those questions with the newly-commissioned South Pole Telescope. Frigid and bone-dry, with six straight months of night each year, the South Pole is a forbidding place to live or work. But for largely the same reasons, it’s one of the best spots on the planet for surveying the faint cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation...
