A New Bright 'Star' Could Appear in The Night Sky in 2022


A huge collision between two stars some 1,800 light-years away could add a bright new object to our night sky, say scientists – though this temporary star will only be visible for two or three years.

This is the first time experts have tried to forecast a cosmic explosion like this, and the researchers say there's usually only a "one-in-a-million chance" of being able to predict a new star before it actually appears.

Astronomer Larry Molnar and his team from Calvin College in Michigan have been keeping a close eye on a binary star called KIC 9832227, which is actually two stars orbiting each other.

In this case, we're dealing with a contact binary, where both stars share parts of the same atmosphere, like two peanuts in a shell.

The researchers think these stars are getting closer together, and could collide with each other in 2022.

That kind of merging is what's called a red nova, and the resulting explosion would cause a 10,000-fold increas…

FUCK Cancer

By Christopher R Rice

Notice how they have to tell us, but then the soundtrack you hear them laughing like it's a big joke and couldn't possibly be true.

Some things that give us the cancer are pesticides (used by farmers and local businesses in food and water), chemicals in cleaning products, some fast food (McDonald's) to name a few.

Less people smoke yet the cancer rate has more than tripled, if you've done the research you know the score and won't be getting cancer.

Trump Threatens to 'Send in the Feds' Because of Chicago 'Carnage'

By Tom Liddy, ABCNews

President Donald Trump threatened to "send in the Feds" to deal with the "carnage" in Chicago if the city doesn't fix the problem, he tweeted.

It's unclear where Trump obtained the aforementioned figures because they differ from those provided by the Chicago Police Department. A spokesperson for the department told ABC News on Tuesday that there have been 38 homicides -- not 42 -- and 182 shootings -- not 228 -- in 2017 so far. 
And despite Trump's claim that shootings and killings are up 24 percent from last year, the police spokesperson said the "shooting incident number is identical and there were 33 homicides for the same period in 2016.” 
Trump has taken a bleak outlook on the city and the thousands of shootings that took place there last year alone. During rallies, he frequently spoke of what he described as the horrors of the inner cities. In 2016, there were some 3,550 shooting incidents and 762 murders in C…

Donald Trump speaks in Hindi in Indian-American campaign ad

Tony Schwartz spent the best part of a year trailing Donald Trump when he ghostwrote the tycoon's 1987 bestseller The Art of the Deal.

He believes he knows him well enough to predict that if Mr Trump is elected president, he would try and impose martial law, attack the free press and launch an attack on people he felt had slighted him that could make Richard Nixon's actions against his enemies appear like "child's play".

Hypocrisy in Kavanaugh case enough to set off alarms in DC

By TheHill

Washington is bracing for a showdown over the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, following the belated disclosure of a letter alleging an attempted rape when he was a high school student. Republicans are crying “smear,” while Democrats are crying “coverup.” Neither side is particularly convincing in their outrage, given their positions on earlier scandals. The challenge is to address the serious issues raised by the allegation through the screen of feigned mutual outrage. That leaves only one real option: public hearings.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward as Kavanaugh’s accuser. She alleges that he attacked her when they were teenagers (he was 17, she was 15) in high school. Ford alleges that Kavanaugh was drunk at a small party in Maryland and forced her into a bedroom. She says he tried to tear off her clothes while holding his hand over her mouth; she further alleges that Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, witnessed the act…

Minnesota Rep. Jim Knoblach quits campaign amid allegations


(AP) — Minnesota state Rep. Jim Knoblach abruptly ended his re-election campaign Friday amid allegations of inappropriate touching from his adult daughter.

Minnesota Public Radio reported the announcement came hours after the St. Cloud Republican's attorney, Susan Gaertner, denied the allegations in an interview with the station. She said the veteran lawmaker "does not want to drag his family through six weeks of hell."

Knoblach's 23-year-old daughter, Laura, told MPR that he inappropriately touched her for most of her life, with her first memories starting when she was 9 years old and continuing until she was 21. She said the activity included kissing, licking and biting her ears. She said she confided in close friends, family and authority figures at her school and church about his actions for more than a decade.

In a written statement, Jim Knoblach called the allegations "indescribably hurtful" and said he felt he had no other choic…

Senate Judiciary aide resigns amid sexual harassment allegation

By Reuters

(Reuters) - A media adviser helping the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee respond to a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has resigned amid allegations of his own sexual misconduct, a committee spokesperson said on Saturday. 
Garrett Ventry, 29, a communications aide to Senate Judiciary committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, was "one of several temporary staff brought on to assist in the committee’s consideration of the Supreme Court nomination," a Senate Judiciary Committee spokesperson told Reuters.

"While he strongly denies allegations of wrongdoing, he decided to resign to avoid causing any distraction from the work of the committee," the spokesperson said.

Ventry was previously fired from the office of North Carolina House Majority Leader John Bell because a female employee of the North Carolina GOP General Assembly accused him of sexual harassment, according to NBC.
