The sonic booms

Blasts and booms have been sounding since January 1 2011.. And this January, 2016, it's going wild.

New Jersey. New York. California.. Florida.. Pennsylvania.. most recently Connecticut. and other countries as well..

At the end of the week, the Navy said it was responsible for sonic booms of the Jersey coastline--those booms were felt so far and wide that the USGS asking for people to report information to them about the situation..

In November 2015, the HORROR REPORT told of booms that were very close to home. My part of Schuylkill County, PA, where I currently reside, was also the home to amazingly loud and boisterous booms that night in November.

A response to the November 2015 story came just yesterday when a reader in my county reported this:
About 7:00 pm., Thursday evening, in Pottsville,Pa.,heard loud sonic boom, shook our house, scared the crap out of us !!!!!

I blasted out a screen shot of the message on my Facebook page and got this response from a reader in South Carolina:
Uhhhh there was a sonic boom in Charleston Tuesday.

Nothing to see here, though, right?

I looked up the sonic boom story from Charleston and found an article from January 27 from WYFF:

Reports of a loud noise and shaking houses like the ones that have poured in across the Lowcountry are indicative of a sonic boom generated by an aircraft, according to a release from the College of Charleston.

I suppose this is all just ...'normal.'

Frost quakes!
Yea!! Frost quakes. Makes sense.
Right?

Frost quakes in Charleston with a high temp of 62 for the past few weeks..

The earth was shaking.

Cause the walls start shaking. The earth was quaking. My mind was aching. And we were making it and you. Shook me all night long

spiPhone X: Brave new world with a filter

It is hard to believe that only ten years ago, the technology that Apple would be selling the public was just about unfathomable.. Extremely fast processors. Facial recognition. Emojis that can make poop turn into your face and voice. 



In 2007, people were happy with Myspace and turning 'off' the net in favor of a night out. Now they can't leave home without the smartphone.
Apple wants to capitalize further on the influencers: Those who we are told have 'disposable income' (credit cards) and are below the age of 25 .. those who care less about processor speed and more about selfie. Those who would indeed literally buy an iPhone simply because it can turn their face into an Emoji of feces...



Let's pause for a moment. The most precious few seconds of Apple's big unveiling was a big flop: They tried to announce facial recognition but when they actually attempted to use it, it failed.
Apple has offered an explanation for an embarrassing glitch at the launch of its …

As the Earth Changes..


This is reporting from the WASHINGTON POST (https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/after-irma-a-once-lush-gem-in-the-us-virgin-islands-reduced-to-battered-wasteland/2017/09/12/b49532e0-9736-11e7-af6a-6555caaeb8dc_story.html?utm_term=.4b43fb7b69f2) along with a must-read article about the devastation in the wake of Hurricane Irma and the destruction being seen in the islands:
CRUZ BAY, U.S. Virgin Islands — The Asolare restaurant is gone, practically blown off its cliff, along with its world-famous carrot ginger soup. The facade of Margarita Phil’s is a junkyard of yellow and vermilion planks. Multimillion-dollar homes and aluminum huts alike lie in ruins.On the island of St. John, that was only Irma’s beginning. Once a lush gem in the U.S. Virgin Islands, a chain steeped in the lore of pirates and killer storms, this 20-square-mile island is now perhaps the site of Irma’s worst devastation on American soil.Six days after the storm — some say several days too late — …

DOES 'MOTHER!' DESERVE THE PRAISE IT IS GETTING? (A spoiler alert with this one)

The horror film 'mother!' Is getting high praise from noble media affiliations. It is also being billed as an intellectual horror flick with a message.. religious overtones.. social justice ramifications.
Big name star: Lawrence. Big name director: Aronofsky (BLACK SWAN FAME) Shock scene (SPOILER): Infant being eaten.



Let's unpack this.. The HOLLYWOOD REPORTER (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/jennifer-lawrences-mother-marks-new-turn-year-prestige-horror-1039071) opines:
Taken purely on its surface, the film is about the horror of hosting ungrateful houseguests. Going beneath that surface, it’s about gruesome male narcissism. Ignoring its text and subtext entirely though, mother! is something more ambitious: A herald of prestige horror at a moment when we might actually need it. It’s September, the calm before the dizzying storm of awards season self-aggrandizement, when we stop thinking of movies as works of art and start thinking of them as show horses; we sac…
