FEARFUL FRIDAY NEWS BITS

A collection of the good, the bad, and the ugly, from the world around  and beyond..



More than 10,000 toddlers in the United States are prescribed drugs for ADHD..  Toddlers.. ADHD.. I am not discounting the valid uses for the drug in some situations, but the ADHD between two and three is called being a toddler..

The TSA's invasive actions have become commonplace to the point where they don't make headlines. Now at airports we just expect a sexually charged patdown from hopefully an UNstimulated agent.. Comedian Molly Shannon is speaking about her experience, saying joked (I think?) that she loves TSA screenings so much that they give her a 'head orgasm'..

People are very naive about the future.. Most people who I talk to about the robotic wars of the new ages on the way laugh at me.. they think I am a tin foil wearing nutjob when I speak about soldiers who are more machine than man.  If you're the same, good reading material is here from the UK GUARDIAN, scientists in the United States have created bionic particles inspired by TERMINATOR.  But with all this creating we are doing, are we going to establish a programmable moral code into the machines? If not... then what?  Machines without mercy on the way.

Better late than never?  The AIR FORCE is getting ready to dismantle HAARP.  The REAL site (though denied by many over the years) has been active since 1993.. some have blamed it for earthquakes and hurricanes..others believed it was less dangerous. Either way funding has been cut..

Remember just about 48 hours ago we and others reported that NASA had a book about aliens potentially being associated with ancient rock art? Well.. NASA has pulled that e-book. Without explanation. ... Do we really need an explanation...?

chelyabinsk
The pink skies are falling.. these days it seems like, whenever a large asteroid is near the planet, it seems like it is discovered just a day or two before a potential strike.. And even worse, we hear about how we almost die a year or two after it occurs, like the 2012 solar flare that NEARLY ruined most of our grid on earth. And now this: A year after Chelyabinsk had that big meteor rip through its skies and ruin buildings, we hear this: That meteor actually collided with an asteroid before it hit earth!! What I don't think I will ever forget is that night, while NASA was telling people not to worry about a large asteroid passing by the planet, Chelyabinsk happened and no one knew it until Twitter started flowing with images and videos of this large meteor over the Russian  city.. But what worries me about it is this: That not only were we unaware of a meteor that could hit the planet, but also apparently had no clue about this other asteroid, either. Even though we were being told no fear of the skies that very night.. We need to come up with an earth-defensive system soon. It always seems like our luck will run out.

Massive hailstorm hits parts of Pennsylvania *including me* .. Parts of Reading, PA's Berkshire mall skyline broken into pieces.. Parts of Philly's airport smashed..  One report I got from a friend who works in Reading, PA, said that 'every car in the parking lot' at her job was smashed up with broken glass all over the concrete.. With all of these earth changes on the way, we may want to reconsider glass ceilings ..

Paging Paige: Done at the WWE

WWE’S PAIGE FORCED TO END WRESTLING CAREER

PWInsider reports that Paige was told at this past Monday’s RAW that she will not be able to return to the ring. It was noted that she is “done” as a wrestler, and that the situation is similar to Edge’s retirement in 2011 due to a neck injury…

Paige had just returned to WWE in late November after a seventeen month absence due to a neck injury she suffered in June of 2016. During her absence she suffered two Wellness policy suspensions.


Paige was injured during a house show at the Nassau Coliseum on Dec. 27 during a six-woman tag match. She was kicked in the back by Sasha Banks and struggled to get back to her feet after the bump.

FIRE AND FURY

The fake missile warning in Hawaii was scary for residents of that state .. 38 minutes of hell.

Scary for America more may be what ELIANA JOHNSON writes in POLITICO: A false warning of a missile threat in Hawaii sent White House aides scrambling Saturday, frantically phoning agencies to determine a response and triggering worries about their preparedness almost a year into the Trump administration. President Donald Trump’s Cabinet has yet to test formal plans for how to respond to a domestic missile attack, according to a senior administration official. John Kelly, while serving as Secretary of Homeland Security through last July, planned to conduct the exercise. But he left his post to become White House chief of staff before it was conducted, and acting secretary Elaine Duke never carried it out. The Old Cold War guard is gone. The newcomers can issue threats but appear to be unaware on how to act on them.. “The U.S. government hasn’t tested these plans in 30 years,” said the senior a…

There is water on Mars. There is not water on Mars. There is water on Mars.

A cross-section of underground ice is exposed at the steep slope that appears bright blue in this enhanced-color view from the HiRISE camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The scene is about 550 yards wide. The scarp drops about 140 yards from the level ground in the upper third of the image.Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech/UA/USGS


This could be a game changer–and quite the about face since the past several months of news gathered have reinforced the notion that no water at all existed..

As reported in the journal Science (paywall), the water was found in both the north and south of Mars, at latitudes equivalent to South America and Scotland. The exposed areas were found on scarps as steep as 55 degrees. Based on the absence of craters in the regions, scientists believe that the features formed relatively recently.


“The discovery reported today gives us surprising windows where we can see right into these thick underground sheets of ice,” study co-author Shane Byrne of the University of…

FCC won’t let Trump’s shithole be

The FCC received complaints after NBC and CNN used the word “s—hole” in their coverage of the controversy over comments President Donald Trump reportedly made to lawmakers during a meeting about immigration.


An FCC spokesman said they received a “handful” of comments, but did not have an exact figure yet. The agency does not monitor programming, but reviews each complaint to decide whether to take any type of action.

CNN featured the term on its chyron, and it was also repeated on air multiple times. But the FCC’s jurisdiction over indecency and profanity does not cover cable and satellite programming.x

The word was used once on “NBC Nightly News,” but anchor Lester Holt issued a viewer warning in advance. CBS and ABC chose not to use the word.

The FCC considers a number of factors in whether to act on a complaint, including “context,” and that in the past has included whether it has been a part of news programming. Broadcasters are confident that they would be exempt for using the term i…

BIG ISLAND SCARE: THE DAY THE WORLD ALMOST ENDED IN HAWAII

THIS WARNING SOUNDED THROUGHOUT THE STATE TODAY:



Not only that, but warnings buzzed on TVs.. radios.. the horrid screeching noise when an emergency alert sounds.. 


CNN reports,

Jocelyn Azbell had just woken up in her Maui hotel Saturday when she was hurried into the hotel's basement to take shelter from an incoming ballistic missile.
"You're thinking, 'Oh my gosh, are we going to die? Is it really a missile (headed) our way, or is it just a test?'" the 24-year-old told CNN. "We really didn't know."
Minutes before, she'd received an ominous alert on her phone.
"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."

Azbell, her boyfriend and hundreds of other hotel guests were "herded like cows" into the basement by staff. "People are crying and people obviously were super scared," she said.
For 20 minutes, Azbell said, they waited. Finally, they were told that the alert was a false ala…

THE FLU BOMB: KIDS GET BANNED FROM DETROIT HOSPITAL!

The worst flu since the early 2000s strikes he entire continental United States is experiencing widespread flu right now, the first time in the 13 years of the current tracking system that that has happened, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Officials said that this flu season is shaping up to be one of the worst in recent years. The rate of flu hospitalizations — the number of people hospitalized with flu per 100,000 — nearly doubled last week compared with the previous week. Last week it was 22.7 per 100,000 people; the week before that rate was 13.7. IT IS SO BAD..
THE KIDS ARE BANNED FROM GOING TO THE HOSPITAL!! All of that prompted metro Detroit's Beaumont hospital chain to take an unusual step Friday afternoon: banning visits from children under 13 until the flu season subsides. “We apologize for the inconvenience,” said a news release from Beaumont Health System, which operates eight major hospitals in southeast Michigan. “All Beaumont Health hospita…
