Re: The "Doomsday Vault"

Currently at 5 minutes to midnight that was activated in January 2012, however they may meet soon to add another minute tick, tick, tick!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3AL8NewISg discusses “belligerence of Western Powers, together with their Gulf state dictatorial puppets in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, who are ignoring anything that doesn't fit with their goals of regime change both in Syria and Iran. Russia reminded the UN-security council (UNSC) members of the fact that the observer mission by the Arab League in Syria also witnessed the killing of civilians by opposition forces BUT they don't want to pay any attention to that.”

This week, scientists set the hands of the infamous "Doomsday Clock" forward one minute from two years ago. "It is now five minutes to midnight," Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (BAS) director Kennette Benedict announced Jan. 10 at a press conference in Washington, D.C.

It is common knowledge that the "Doomsday Clock" is a symbol of the threat of humanity's imminent destruction from nuclear or biological weapons, climate change and other human-caused disasters



The clock is ticking

Re: The "Doomsday Vault"

I remember this article in science daily (I believe it was in science daily), which attributed the massive bee deaths with cellphone usage. The signals that are invisible to the human eye, where shown to be harmful to bees during the testing stage.

Gotta find that article again.

Gotta find that article again.
The story was based on research done by Swiss researchers
who studied the effects of cell phones on bees
by placing active phones in or near hives.
Apparently, the bees were able to tell when the handsets made and received calls
and the insects responded by making “piping” sounds, the high-pitched tones
that spread the message through the colony that something disturbing is happening.
The media swarmed around the story
but while the study provided evidence that bees do get agitated by cell phones
as do most humans, at times
there was no proof that they caused death
despite the use of the phrase “could be partly to blame.”
As the website CleanTechnica pointed out
the Daily Mail article explicitly states, all the way down in paragraph 17, that

the study DID NOT show that mobile phones were deadly for bees.”

CleanTechnica columnist Jeremy Bloom, who helped expose the fallacy
tried to jokingly explain the discrepancy between the headline
and the part of the story that admits there was no actual evidence of bee deaths
by surmising the headline writer may not have read that far.

Ah, and here I am trusting science daily.

Thanks for the clarification, amigo.

These Bee deaths are quite the curious case.

Curiouser and curiouser, it's multiple wild life - not just bees
Mysterious Mass Animal Deaths All Over the World:

Millions of birds, fish, crabs and other small marine life
have been turning up dead in massive numbers
from the United States, through Europe and down to South America.


Scientists and environmental officials
have attributed some of the deaths to severe weather
dramatic drops in temperature, even fireworks.
However, many reported deaths remain mysterious.
