Notable headlines from the world at large

Cunning cowards and chaotic crises. The world at large is as bizarre and frightening as always.. The HORROR REPORT hasn't curated much news as of late with some personal duties that needed tending to, but here's a snapshot of some things that matter and many that probably don't from sea to sea and beyond..

Why not start the news update with perhaps the most dangerous for humanity: An astronomer is claiming that an asteroid the size of the Statue of Liberty is on a collision course with the planet earth.. Dr Judit Gy├Ârgyey-Ries, astronomer at the University of Texas' McDonald Observatory, believes the giant rock could create a huge impact when it reaches earth in around October 2017..

 

The scary real news doesn't stop with asteroids lurking beyond the planet's ozone.. REUTERS has an exclusive story running about how the NY branch of the FED, worried about 'natural' calamity, is adding staff to its satellite office in Chicago..  I can't help but think  a bit about the story we, and many others, reported last night: WALMARTs around the nation--5 of them--all shutting down suddenly because of 'plumbing problems.'    Customers are skeptical of that claim.  SO are workers. So am I..  And while I am not alleging any connection between the WALMART plumbing claim and the NY FED movements to Chicago, I am stating for the record: Everything seems to be a creepy hair trigger away from disaster as of late.. moments in which we seem to think that our safety is fleeting and chaos is knocking on our safe front doors..

 

More fear and loathing in Vegas. And everywhere else.. Scientists at the European Science Foundation are warning every person on earth that a volcanic eruption could destroy humanity.. that we will be back to a time when we existed during pre-civilization days.. and that the human race will be devastated by the natural occurrences..

 

More news from the information superhighway about the highway to hell..
Large scale WMD drills hosted throughout Iowa...
Realistic Military Training in California, Arizona...
Marine unit drills at sports park...
Pentagon drafting thousands of ‘cyber forces’ in prep for cyber emergency 

 

With evil and darkness looming, religious people seemingly are gearing up for battle, too. Take for instance these headlines: Most British dioceses now have an exorcist at the ready..  From the city of Rome: A high profile exorcist is claiming that ISIS is Satan.  Father Gabriele Amorth says that the Holy Spirit exists. And now is in a spiritual battle with the true evil, ISIS.  The UK TELEGRAPH says that the Pope Francis effect is the reason that the exorcism boom has occurred. Perhaps it goes deeper.. perhaps it can be chalked up to the fact that people are truly feeling that the earth has been suddenly shrouded in spiritual darkness.


 

With all of the negativity, it may be hard to believe there is hope that someone, someone alive today as a matter of fact, may be the first person on Earth to live until 1000. Can you imagine living to 1000? Would you want to? Most people I asked today said no. . . until I mentioned that it could be  a healthy life and that their family may also be able to live as well.. Suddenly their answers shifted towards the affirmative. And they accepted the new possibilities of a long life..

 

Let me quickly talk about a few things that really don't matter. But they are most likely things being talked about by talking heads on talk shows that have endless talk.. Things like this: Hillary Clinton faked a photo op .. made a staged Iowa event look like a real campaign stop.  People who lived through the 90s shouldn't see this as any amazing feat. Just another day in Clintonland. Speaking of Hill's hill of beans, BUZZFEED is splashing headlines on its site about how, according to their reporting, Hillary Clinton flat out lied about having immigrant grandparents..  But as life goes, every normal event--politics and scandal--has some weird and often paranormal aspect to it. Such as this: Hillary Clinton's father's tombstone has been topped..  I fear whoever may have performed of vandalism doesn't realize that, just plain out, you don't mess with the dead.. unless someone didn't do it..

And now the rest of the story....

NETFLIX released information today showing that they are doing well. More subscribers.. more profit.. But a deeper look into the numbers may reveal a bit of a different fact.. Content costs are skyrocketing, and some analysts say that the financial picture at NETFLIX continues to falter..   Rosy Scenario? Or Blight and Plight..?

Things going downhill since the roast: Justin Bieber was put into a chokehold and thrown out of an event with DRAKE..

From movies to music.. now FURIOUS 7 soundtrack is Billboard number 1..

WONDER WOMAN has a new director..

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK gets another NETFLIX season..

GUITAR HERO coming back!

Mystery continues on why the Sunspot solar observatory was shut down

Sunspot apologizes for the continued closure of the facilities,” a statement on the observatory’s Facebook page said on Sunday. “The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA) is addressing a security issue at the National Solar Observatory facility at Sacramento Peak, New Mexico and has decided to temporarily vacate the facility as a precautionary measure..



And that is just about all the public knows about why the FBI shut down the observatory within notice warning or after-event statements..
But online, theories rage into the night as to what caused the FBI to sweep into the town, close down the space observatory along with the town post office, and ever let anyone back in.. The entire observatory is reportedly empty at this time—employees obviously gone but some Twitter reports state that the actual equipment and other items have been taken away as well.

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment." No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
