Jupiter is a gigantic ball of churning gas clouds, and that makes it hard to see what’s in the middle. It’s believed to be a relatively small, rocky core, but data from the Juno probe found that it’s less dense and more spread out than expected. Now, astronomers believe they have an answer – a huge ancient planet, with 10 times the mass of Earth, crashed into the gas giant in the early days of the solar system. read more

Simultaneous Gene Modifications Now Possible

We’ve seen a number of recent improvements to the CRISPR gene editing method, from enhanced precision to novel techniques to block the process. But despite all these innovations, the technique is generally only able to modify one single gene at a time.

Glaciers are Being Murdered in Iceland – Global Warming Must be to Blame

You know how we always hear news people describe someone as the alleged or suspected killer, not just a killer who murdered X number of people, or whatever.

It’s because there is supposed to be an assumption of innocent, lacking any evidence and due process.

Well, in Iceland, a murder on a massive scale took place and the funeral service was just held recently. The service was held for the victim, “the once huge Okjokull (OK) glacier.” The glacier perished some five years ago, in 2014, yet it’s taken all this time to decide to hold a funeral? Better late than never, I guess. As the old saying goes: It ain’t getting any deader!

I’d like to say, after all this time, a suspect is in custody. But no one is using the term suspect. Rather, the environmentalists and virtue signaling hangers-on that attended the service know full well who perpetrated this act. They aren’t using the terms suspected or alleged. Oh no – the perp has been tried and convicted in the world environmental court.

The murderer is of course … Global Warming, or Climate Change. read more

Most people think of turmeric as a kitchen spice, or perhaps as a health supplement that’s taken orally. Now, however, scientists have incorporated curcumin – a compound extracted from turmeric – into a porous foam that’s designed to heal skin wounds with a minimum of scarring. read more

Video Podcast – A Confluence of Two Schemes

Red Flags and Deep Fakes

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There are currently two things happening in America that could be devastating to our people. Two things, which if used by the correct villainous individual or group, could cripple one’s reputation, ruin one’s life, or much much worse.

One high-tech and one decided low. One can negatively affect a single individual and the other could potentially rock the entire nation and send us spiraling into Civil War.

This is not hyperbole. I am deadly serious.

The two are Red Flag laws and Deep Fake Videos. read more

An extraordinarily sensitive new blood test has been developed that promises to be able to effectively track the progression of breast cancer at its earliest stages. It is suggested the blood test could track the efficacy of drug therapies better than current imaging techniques and prevent unnecessary surgical procedures or needless extra doses of chemotherapy. read more

Targeted at anti-piracy, border control, intelligence gathering and maritime security missions, the Pacific 950 is an autonomous boat that can operate alone for up to 10 days, or cover 300 nautical miles (556 km) at pursuit speed. Its built-in stabilized 12.7-mm weapons system, however, is human-operated. read more
