    Extra-terrestrial life does exist, the head of NASA has confirmed, but said aliens were not hidden in Area 51. NASA Administrator Major Charles Bolden told British schoolchildren that he was confident that scientists would find life outside of Earth because there were so many planets that are similar to our own. Asked by 10-year-old Carmen Dearing if he believed in aliens, he said: "I do believe that we will someday find other forms of life or a form of life, if not in our solar system then in some of the other solar systems - the billions of solar systems...

    I love astronomy. I have my whole life. Part of that is the wonder and awe it generates, learning about the Universe and our place in it. But of course, there is great beauty in the skies as well. From our nearest neighbors to the most distant galaxies, the cosmos is a wonder to behold. Every year I collect my favorite pictures—chosen both for their beauty and their importance to science—and put them together in a gallery to delight your brain (you’ll find links to previous galleries at the end of this article). Picking only a few is always a...

  • Chris Matthews Wonders Why Republicans Distrust The ‘Mainstream Media’

    Mediaite ^ | 4/3/11 | Matt Schneider
    Chris Matthews asked his Sunday morning panel why Republicans derisively use the term “mainstream media” and whether 2012 presidential candidates could be successful if they avoided engaging with the media? Matthews heard varied responses, but ultimately thought that candidates might come out looking better after a “testy interview” rather than avoiding confrontation. The discussion revealed that criticism of the media is a result of some on the right believing the mainstream media are “lapdogs to the establishment.” Although Helene Cooper of The New York Times argued even if candidates try to avoid the major media publications,

    You don’t find many “gems” on a Saturday morning. It’s a lazy day, getting ready for football and a late breakfast---then Cokie Roberts, speaking on ABC’s Good Morning America, dropped the bomb.Roberts has apparently bought into the far-left's conspiracy theory that Republicans simply do not want to see Americans get jobs. Yep. Republicans are more interested in defeating old media’s Dear Leader than they are in Americans' well-being. ABC's Dan Harris sounded off in agreement.Harris set it up this way: “In the modern era no President has won re-election with the unemployment rate higher than 7.2%”

    Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” In reading about the life of Stephen, I asked myself this question. How would I like to be full of faith and power, and do great wonders and signs among the people? (Acts 6:8) Do you know that this is possible, even today, especially today? I have some good news for you. Flowing in the power that Stephen did is available to us right now. To understand about the faith that Stephen operated in, listed are types of faith described in Scripture....

    GENEVA (AFP) - More than 45 million people have voted so far in an Internet campaign to choose the seven "new" wonders of the world out of 21 shortlisted historical buildings or monuments, the organisers said Monday. The contest, aimed at raising global awareness about the world's shared cultural heritage, was set up by a Swiss filmmaker, curator and traveller Bernard Weber, following the destruction of Afghanistan's giant Buddha statues at Bamyan by the Taliban in 2001. In the most recent count published on May 7, the top 10 were the Acropolis in Greece, the ancient Mayan city of Chichen...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Voters are lining up behind Rudolph Giuliani, who became "America's mayor" on Sept 11, 2001. But many New Yorkers remember the mayor before that day with less affection. New Yorkers may have enjoyed Giuliani's success at taming the untamed city but are quick to recall the combative mayor who insulted constituents, bullied opponents and made crossing the street in the middle of the block a punishable offense. That's not to mention his multiple marriages, a divorce so acrimonious a judge ordered Giuliani's mistress out of the mayor's mansion and a son so estranged he plans to...

    Night spectacular plays across the skies November 10, 2004 - 3:29PM A multi-coloured light show is expected to play across Australia's southern skies this week as a major geomagnetic storm rages above the earth's atmosphere. But metropolitan observers will likely have to travel to the country to see the aurora australis, or southern lights, because ambient light from city illuminations usually drowns out the view. Perry Vlahos of the Astronomical Society of Victoria said it was difficult to predict the intensity of the lights, and city sightings were not impossible but the display was unlikely to be as spectacular as...
