"In a report to be published in the journal Acta Astronautica, Vitaly Adushkin at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow argues that the threat of space debris constitutes a 'special political danger' because the owner of the impacted satellite 'can hardly quickly determine the real cause of the accident.
Unexplained failures of defence satellites could be explained either by unregistered collision with space debris or by an intentional attack by an enemy nation."So let's clean "up there" up, shall we?
'I think that climate change is just a very, very expensive form of tax. A lot of people are making a lot of money. I know much about climate change,' Trump said.So he says it's
Trump indeed said during a December 30 rally in Hilton Head, South Carolina that the modern climate change movement is 'a hoax. I mean, it's a money-making industry, okay? It's a hoax, a lot of it.'
He insisted that 'we don't have to destroy our economy' in order to protect the natural environment.
"This past year saw what is likely the most powerful El Nino during the satellite temperature record. With a record El Nino, we should have experienced record high temperatures. Yet we didn’t.(By the way, that's exactly how he wrote it. You'd think someone writing about climate could at least get the name right, i.e., El Niño. It can't be that hard to find a tilde.)
A record El Nino resulting in less-than-record temperatures is another sign that global warming is not all that activists crack it up to be. Indeed, if a record strong El Nino cannot bring global temperatures back to the warmth of 1998, what can – and when will that be?"
"And now he's showing off his bride-to-be, who I think definitely qualifies as a mom-to-be-in-bikini, even though she might not be pregnant yet. I can't see Gary passing up this opportunity to promulgate, propagate, and procreate with lingerie model Danielle Bux! (Who wouldn't??)"Well, apparently he did pass up on it, and it is the purported cause for the end of their marriage.
"Gary Lineker and Danielle Bux have just divorced after six years of marriage because he doesn’t want any more babies and she does — something you can’t help but think they might have sorted out before kick-off."Well, I guess that shows being a silverback (usually defined in my book as an older accomplished man in his profession with scads of money to show for it) married to a hot supermodel isn't always a perfect lifestyle.

"Ryan’s single most important objective is to keep his House from doing anything over the course of the next eleven months that will make it less likely that a Republican wins the presidential race. Because if the GOP nominee prevails, with Congress still in Republican control they’ll be able to have anything and everything they want — tax cuts for the wealthy, slashing the safety net, more military spending, making abortion all but illegal, maybe another war or two, and yes, actually repealing Obamacare."See what I underlined? That's the problem. We need to be very, very wary.
"1894. Active; focal plane 31 m (101 ft;) flash every 2 s, alternating red and white. 27 m (89 ft) round reinforced concrete tower with lantern and gallery; solar-powered lens. Tower and gallery painted white; lantern unpainted gray metal."
"Negril Lighthouse was built in 1894 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south south east of the westernmost tip of the island of Jamaica by the French company Bubbler & Bernard. It is one of the earliest concrete lighthouses."
"Its foundation is a tank 14 feet (4.3 m) deep, which is kept filled with water to keep the reinforced concrete tower balanced and secured in the event of an earthquake. The tower is topped with a lantern and gallery.
An automatic white light 30 m (100 feet) above sea level flashes every two seconds. The light was operated by gas initially, switching to acetylene in 1956 and solar energy in 1985."
