These capabilities are primarily found at DOE’s two key emergency response facilities—the Remote Sensing Laboratories at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, and Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

No Federation or Empire for Our Universe

Whether you’re a Sci-Fi fan or not, you will have probably watched at least an episode of Star Trek, or one of the Star Wars movies. The former’s Federation of Planets is the utopia of many, including myself, and the latter’s Galactic Empire definitely doesn’t do anything for one’s self esteem in a universe. Across the realm of science fiction mediums, great galactic groups of people come together to wage war or preserve peace.

Sols Solar System Squashed

December 2004 saw the Voyager 1 spacecraft exit our solar system. It was the first manmade object to do so, and has been an unqualified success from its launch date, September 5, 1977. Its sister ship, Voyager 2 has also made it outside the solar system, and in doing so, provided us with invaluable information about our home.

Dam the Red Sea! No, literally…

Much of the world’s focus at the moment is pointed directly towards the environment. Everyone (well, mostly) wants to help keep our planet from dying a horrible polluted death. So when you get a solution that is also a hazard, what happens next?

Ancient Flood, the Gulf Stream, and the 21st Century

In another case of our history helping us make sense of our future, researchers have definitively confirmed what shut down the Gulf Stream some 10,000 years ago. In a tale that reads like something out of Lord of the Rings, this catastrophe might have lessons for our future.

AIM Urges Action to Save “The Savage Nation” Radio Talk Show

Accuracy in Media editor Cliff Kincaid is urging Americans nationwide to contact the companies which have been identified as dropping advertisements from The Savage Nation radio program featuring Michael Savage. The ultimate question, Kincaid said in a recent column, is: “Will Sharia law or the First Amendment prevail in the U.S.? The fate of Michael Savage will provide the answer.”

Russia: Enemy of America’s War on Terror

Recently, the news articles have been reporting that Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin has made a seemingly new alliance with Iranian dictator  Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.  However, this alliance has been long-standing and is currently a means to discrediting America and isolating “her” from allied nations.

Clinton lied, people yawned

Bill Clinton is alive and well in his familiar persona as a pathological liar.  Bill goes to Iowa and tells a group of Democrats that even if Hillary was not his wife, he would be there to campaign for her to be president – which is to say, he looked Iowans dead in the eye and lied to them.  Bill maintains that he always opposed the Iraq War – which is to say, he pretends historical records do not exist, so he lies to us.  Bill informs us that he wants his presidential archives released, but that somehow “George Bush” is at fault – which is to say, Bill lies again.

In the Shadow of Steel Mills

I grew up in Hamilton Ontario in the mid 1950s, in the very shadows of steel mills that were still vital and a football team that still won games, the only son of a refugee family who didn’t own a car, nor a television, nor a cottage and whose idea of a vacation was a yearly trek to the Canadian National Exhibition in far distant Toronto and a day’s outing to the great and bustling metropolis of Buffalo.

Dishonest political tampering with the science on global warming

Denpasar, Bali - As a contributor to the IPCC’s 2007 report, I share the Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore. Yet I and many of my peers in the British House of Lords - through our hereditary element the most independent-minded of lawmakers - profoundly disagree on fundamental scientific grounds with both the IPCC and my co-laureate’s alarmist movie An Inconvenient Truth, which won this year’s Oscar for Best Sci-Fi Comedy Horror.

MPP Randy Hillier Makes Queen’s Park Debut

Randy Hillier, Ontario Landowners AssociationNewly elected MPP Randy Hillier of Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington made his speaking debut in Queen’s Park today. Mr. Hillier began by welcoming 150 visiting members of the Ontario Landowners Association (OLA) to the Gallery at Queen’s Park, reminding the Assembly that the OLA promotes the principals of democracy, natural justice, strong local government, and represents the interests of the rural community. Mr. Hillier then sought and received unanimous consent from the House that “those (OLA members) present be permitted to wear the distinctive shirts that signify their membership in this very important organization,” upon which the Landowners displayed their recognizable ‘Back Off Government’ shirts. Then the following exchange was recorded in Hansard on Dec 6, 2007

Dick Simpson Whitewashing 60s Radicals

They always say that the passage of time sometimes dulls the memory of a person’s past, that oft times only the good memories remain. More often, though, time plus a large dollop of myth making and lies creates a whole new world out of the past.  Dick Simpson is more evidence of the latter than the former.

The End of a Debate

It is hard to envision anything other than the current dual-party template configuring this country’s political landscape anytime in the foreseeable future. For all intents and purposes, the Democratic and Republican parties are here to stay. And save for the few nominal party members who on occasion stray from their presumed ideological bearings, each party is correspondingly beholden – admittedly in somewhat reductive yet not wholly inaccurate characterizations - to its respective ideology; namely the liberal (benignly dubbed “progressive”) and the conservative ideologies.

Global Warming Lies Create a Climate of Crisis

The United Nations conference in Bali, attended by some 10,000 participants and observers, is likely to make future generations conclude that ours was deranged to be discussing how humans could have any affect whatever on the climate. They will, in retrospect, agree that the global warming theory was a lie whose agenda was to retard anything that might extend and enhance life on earth.

Skirting the Constitution

The U.S. Constitution could not be clearer: “No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation….” Nevertheless, the state of Arizona, USA, and the state of Sonora, Mexico, have entered into an agreement, which is called a Declaration of Cooperation. Obviously, Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano considers this agreement to be neither an alliance nor a confederation.
