The Correlation Between Corexit and Klondike Bars

• October, 2010

BP Is Teaching Kids The Correlation Between Corexit and Klondike Bars BP and the federal government are working together to brainwash our kids into believing that Corexit is perfectly safe and the gulf is recovering right on schedule. They literally are teaching our school children that Corexit is in numerous items that we eat and poses absolutely no problem.

Full-Body Scan Technology In Street-Roving Vans

• October, 2010

As the privacy controversy around full-body security scans begins to simmer, it’s worth noting that courthouses and airport security checkpoints aren’t the only places where backscatter x-ray vision is being deployed. The same technology, capable of seeing through clothes and walls, has also been rolling out on U.S. streets. American Science & Engineering, a company based in Billerica, Massachusetts, has sold U.S. and foreign government agencies more than 500 backscatter x-ray scanners mounted in vans that can be driven past neighboring vehicles to see their

Hubble Spots Ghostly Space Spiral

But this isn’t a lone star; there’s a second star — a binary partner — orbiting with it and modulating the expanding gas. SLIDE SHOW: Top

US military’s top secret X-37B shuttle ‘disappears’ for two weeks and changes orbit.

The X-37B was launched in April amid much publicity, but scant detail about its true use. Built by Boeing’s Phantom Works division, the X-37B program was originally headed by NASA. It was later turned over to the Pentagon‘s research and development arm and then to a secretive Air Force unit.

Clouds Can Communicate, Scientists Say

• September, 2010

Clouds Can Communicate Little, fluffy and talkative? Clouds can communicate, a new paper suggests — but what are they talking about? A new study has found that clouds “communicate” with each other, much like chirping crickets or flashing fireflies on a summer night. The surprising findings, published online in the journal Nature, may have significant implications for our understanding of the Earth’s climate. So the next time you find yourself laying on your back picking out shapes among the clouds, mull on this one: Are
