What will be 2014's shot heard around the world?

World tensions: North Korea, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine »It’s amazing to see the amount of conflagration across the planet earth right now. in 1914, there was a ‘shot heard around the world’ as Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated.. that event was the historical blame for the trigger that began World War I—the ‘war to end all wars.’ The end never came.. but a second world war did..  Will the events of 2014, one hundred years on, lead to world war 3? Are we ripe for another strange occurrence to electrify the current charge of the planet?  There seem to be so many battles right now, and so many needless deaths. Brutal, and disgusting kills.. sickening events as the devil incarnate advances throughout the continents of the planet. But…what will be that ‘trigger’ that begins the next big conflict? The war to end all wars, 21st century style?

Back UNDER THE DOME

Back under the dome.. maybe this season will at least start a bit better: Stephen King apparently wrote episode 1..
UNDER THE DOME returns tonight to CBS at 10pm. This time, according to Stephen King himself, no one under the dome is safe.. but will we be safe to watch? The original season was awful.. Maybe this go around a new and more vibrant DOME awaits. King writes.. We will see. Don't get me wrong.. it's great to see King's books make it on TV... But the first season of UNDER THE DOME was as bad as his book--I never liked it, as a matter of fact, it perhaps was my least favorite among his many. But... I am going to watch SEASON 2 with hope.. hope that things improve and life under the dome is weirder, creepier, and more laden with better acting. Really.. is that too much to ask?

Mom Wants Overdose Reversal Drug Available To Families of Addicts.. and with that a question of ethics abound »The number of people dying from heroin overdoses in Ohio has increased exponentially. State lawmakers are considering a bill that would allow an addict’s family or friends to give a drug that can halt an overdose. Some medical experts worry expanding the drug’s availability could cause other problems.I recently found myself in a pretty heated debate with family over this drug.. I was doing my typical act of playing devil’s advocate.. I am slightly still torn as to what the right answer should be.. Should someone be permitted to bring back a person who overdosed on drugs? I was told be the naysayers who said nay: “No, we cannot play God.”
"No, the drug addict made the choice."
"No, they will live to do drugs again." All valid points, I suppose.. but I expanded on it all perhaps too much for a family meal. I guess you should never talk politics or religion at th…

The Shia has fallen

A part of me thinks that Shia LaBeouf  is a whore for attention.. the other part of me thinks his behavior has gone beyond the ‘act’ and is becoming real..  Nonetheless, his latest stint in the public eye involves his arrest at the Broadway musical Cabaret last night..  According to witnesses, reports, and all that: He was smoking and being very loud and disruptive..   Read some more here.. And yes, this may not be the most important event in the news today, but it’s interesting to me. Either we are watching a new modern version of Andy Kauffman in action, or we are seeing the default behavior of a flailing and failing celebrity.  Act or not, the Shia has fallen.

Hooked on habits

Why cigarettes are more deadly than ever: Charity reveals the underhand tactics tobacco companies now use to make sure we're hooked »I always find it funny to think how people are so accepting of the premise that cigarette companies put in chemicals to get people hooked, but yet dismiss “conspiracy theorists” for asserting (often correctly) that food companies do the same thing.

The Gollum of China spotted by urinating tourist

Creepy stuff if real (But is anything real these days?) A tourist in China claims to have snapped this photo of a weird “Gollum” type creature among the rocks North of Beijing.. It’s not determined if he was searching for his precious, but we know the tourist came close to the ”monster” when he went to find a spot to urinate. There are rumors of the rumors, though: One online comment apparently professed to have inside knowledge.. someone wrote that he and his friends went to the woods to make a sci-fi film. While doing so, someone who was urinating snapped his photo. This is just completely, all around, weird.

There's a special place in hell for Jimmy Savile

There is some NEW and as always repulsive information on the disgusting Jimmy Savile. We now know this: He claimed to have performed lots of sex acts of dead people.. (On top of his horrendous crimes on the living) .. You can read more about it if you wish to.. If there is a hell, Jimmy Savile is a door greeter when you get there..

USGS Scientist Says Alaska, New Zealand Quakes Might Be Linked »With massive quakes striking off the Alaskan and New Zealand coast Monday, a scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey said he is weighing the possibilities that the two might be connected.I don’t know if this is a first or not, but quite some time many ‘experts’ have said that earthquakes do not have a rhyme or reason and are not connected.. others like Stan Deyo have been able to successfully predict earthquakes for years.. Those ‘tin foil’ hat wearers have been criticized by the science community at large for some time.. But now someone from the USGS is agreeable to the premise that two quakes on the same day may be connected—and when tension starts on one side of the ring of fire, a burst may occur on the other.
Another study confirms: Pesticide exposure in pregnancy linked to autism risk in kids »Women who live near sites where commercial pesticides are used may be more likely to have child with autism, study findsYes there are studies all of the time which indicate strange things are associated with autism and other developmental disorders.. But this is not the first time I have seen the link between pesticides and the impact on brain neurons..  Give the story a full read.
And no, it won’t settle anything.. but it certainly may make some of our daily lives unsettling.

A local tsunami warning was issued after an 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck in the Pacific Ocean west of Alaska’s Aleutian Islands on Monday, the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Tsunami Warning Center said. The warning covered coastal areas of Alaska from Nikolski to Attu, the center said, adding the level of tsunami danger was being evaluated for other U.S. and Canadian Pacific coasts. The quake struck about 14 miles (23 km) southeast of Little Sitkin Island, Alaska, at a depth of about 71 miles (114 km), USGS said.
