China to launch ‘artificial moon’ into SPACE to replace STREET LIGHTS

China is two years away from sending a lighting satellite to space, according to Wu Chunfeng, chairman of space contractor Chengdu Aerospace Science and Technology Microelectronics System Research Institute Co (CASC).

The device has been designed to illuminate an area as large as 80km and works by complementing the light of the moon at night, Mr Wu explained during a national mass innovation and entrepreneurship activity held last week.

The device's power of illuminating the Earth will be eight-time stronger than the one of the real moon, enough to replace the lights on the street.

The artificial moon will focus its light on the city of Chengdu, in southwestern China.

Had a really bad day at work today. On my way home I stopped at a gas station to pickup a drink. I usually don't buy scratch off tickets because they are a total scam. Well today I was feeling lucky, sure enough the $1 ticket I bought ended up being a $100 winner :)

Is An Asteroid Coming? NASA's 'Planetary Defense Coordination Office' Budget Suddenly Spikes To $150 Million

The Trump administration has proposed increasing the budget for NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office by three-fold — from some $60 million to $150 million — amid growing concerns that humanity is utterly unprepared for the unlikely but still unthinkable: an asteroid strike of calamitous proportions.

Students report illness after consuming kangaroo meat at western Nebraska school

Some of the students at a western Nebraska high school and junior high may have fallen ill after consuming chili with kangaroo meat mixed with beef last week.

The school’s head cook Kevin Frei said he added the kangaroo meat for its nutritional value and because it’s a lean cut.

You're talking serious cattle country in Western Nebraska. You mixed WHAT with beef???

Is Gold Becoming Cool Again?

The sentiment shift is still subtle, but it’s both real and widespread. After a few years of being ignored and/or dismissed as basically useless, gold is cool again, attracting positive comments in the media and increasing accumulation by big investors.

Want To Know When You'll Die? UCLA Scientist Decodes Lifespan, Learns Exercise Is Bull*hit

UCLA biostatistician Steve Horvath stumbled across a reliable method of predicting a person's lifespan based on 300-500 DNA markers which reveal whether someone is aging unusually fast or slowly compared to their chronological age, according to a recent research paper. And while it can't predict the exact date and time of your demise (yet), it comes pretty close.

While diet and lifestyle are a significant factor in longevity, Horvath surprisingly found that regular exercise doesn't add more than a few months to your life.

For the complete opposite of the above post:

New study says not exercising is pretty much the worst thing you can possibly do

a new study by cardiologists reveals that of all the things you can do that might negatively impact your health, a sedentary lifestyle is the most deadly.
...
According to the data, lack of cardiovascular fitness is a huge risk factor for death. ... Lack of exercise is, as far as this study is concerned, actually worse than being a current smoker.

And those two "studies" are why I pay little attention to studies regarding exercise, diet, etc... They're really just opinions based on "some" evidence. The science will change with the wind. I do exercise and happen to love it and believe I need it. I also try and eat on the healthy side with moderation in portion size. Other than that I'll die when God determines I will. That's my simple way of looking at it.

Cosmonaut brains show space travel causes lasting changes

Now, a study of recently active cosmonauts adds to the concern for one particularly vital organ: the brain. The results suggest that deformations to brain tissue caused by weightless conditions can linger even after space travelers have had their boots back on Earth for seven months.

The research, published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine, documents the impacts of space travel on cosmonauts who each spent roughly 189 days on the International Space Station.

US Troops Deploy ‘Overwhelming Force’ Against Iceland’s Beer Supplies

U.S. troops landed in Iceland last week ahead of the start the largest NATO military exercise since the Cold War, and apparently, they left their mark in the most appropriate way possible: by drinking every last beer in the nation’s capital.

A significant number of bars in downtown Reykjavík were forced to make emergency beer runs under the onslaught of thirsty American sailors and Marines in town for the start of Trident Juncture 18, Iceland Magazine reports.

Local media estimate that 6,000 and 7,000 U.S. military personnel exhausted beer cellars across the Icelandic capital in the span of a single weekend.

Nearly 50,000 troops from 29 NATO allies (plus Sweden and Finland) are participating...

There's 123,000 people who live in the capital (according to Google), but they gave credit strictly to the Americans?? Where are the other 43,000-44,000 participating soldiers?? I question that reporting...someone is either trying to brag or make us look bad! :lol:

Listening to too much Christmas music is bad for your health, according to clinical psychologist

According to psychologist Linda Blair, listening to “Santa Claus is coming to town” on repeat could actually have a negative effect on your brain.

“People working in the shops at Christmas have to tune out Christmas music because if they don’t, it really does stop you from being able to focus on anything else,” she told Sky News.

“You’re simply spending all of your energy trying not to hear what you’re hearing.”

That back yard area is fenced in and they needed to go thru a covered patio area and make a 90 degree turn in the patio to get there. I opened a gate on the other side of the house to let them out, I don't know if they'd have found their way out if I didn't open that gate.
