MSNBC is collapsing under the weight of its ego.. The network has faced steep ratings declines.. the most recent: It lost a quarter of its already low number of viewers in 2013..

New information becoming available regarding the pilot aboard flight 370.. as hundreds of pieces are now being found on satellites, it's becoming a stronger possibility that the missing plane may be found (still too early to say with bad weather preventing people from getting to the site here the objects were found) .. And now this: A friend of the pilot, Zaharie Ahmad Shah, was in 'no state of mind' to be flying the plane..

Fear is gripping West Africa as the Ebola nightmare continues.. It's one of the deadliest viruses known to mankind and it's on the loose..

Chris Dancy (pictured) is accepted to be 'the most quantified human' and uses sensors, devices, services and applications to give him real-time data about his body and the environment around him. The patches on his neck and wires coming out of his arms are not real and are intended to represent his 'connectivity'
Meet ROBOMAN.. he is the most wired person in the world. 700 sensors that capture every single moment of his existence 24/7.. His name is Chris Dancy from Denver, CO.. And he's wired. Literally. This could be a glimpse of the future as we travel further down the road of transhumanism. .



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
