The Extinction Protocol

January 29, 2013NEBRASKA If you happen to be in the Omaha, Neb., area, take care and be mindful of the flames shooting up through the city’s manholes. A sewer fire has caused power outages in one section of town and also created the perfect circumstances for dramatic pictures of fire erupting through from the ground up like hellfire as shown in the photo above. Omaha Public Power District Vice President Tim Burke speculates that because of past, unseasonably dry weather, a recent wet spell could have allowed moisture to get into cables and sparked the blaze. –MSN

The Extinction Protocol

January 30, 2013CHINAA massive sinkhole in Guangzhou, China, swallowed up buildings and knocked out power to thousands of residents. According to Shanghaiist, the sinkhole is about 3,230 square feet and plenty deep. A video shows a crowd milling about the sinkhole before it expanded, causing a building to crumble as if it were detonated. Neighboring buildings were evacuated and streets were blocked by police. “Gas could be smelt from over 30 metres away, and deafening noises could be heard as the land continued to crack and sink,” the Shanghaiist reports. Sinkholes are, unfortunately, nothing new. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, some sinkholes are human-induced. “New sinkholes have been correlated to land-use practices, especially from groundwater pumping and from construction and development practices.” They also occur in areas where the rock beneath the land surface can be easily dissolved by groundwater. Human-induced or not, sinkholes are…

The Extinction Protocol

January 27, 2013WORLDYet here we are, forced to choose between two ideologies, two disparate worlds that rely on two disparate sets of facts. The reasoned voter, who cares about finding the best answer to our questions, is forced to determine the lesser of two jaded markets for truth. These two markets present problems for our politics. Americans think we are more divided than we actually are. Our politicians disagree far more frequently than we need to disagree. Gridlock ensues. Even more disturbing is that social science becomes politicized, and the public is fooled into thinking that truth is a two party system. –.Campus Times 
Upside Down and polarized: The world of cinema reflects this widening rift in society, by class, by race, by religion, by gender, and  socio-economic status. In the movie, Upside Down, reality exists simultaneously in two adjoining worlds. One…

The Extinction Protocol

January 27, 2013–  HEALTHAn extremely virulent strain of Norovirus is spreading across the United States, and this on the heels of one of the worst influenza outbreaks our country has ever seen. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, this newest strain of narrow virus, called GII.4 Sidney, was first discovered in Sydney, Australia in March 2012. In the United States, it is currently the leading cause of Norovirus outbreaks, and because it is a new strain, it is easy to contract because no one has any immunity to it. A Norovirus is basically what you might call the stomach flu or even food poisoning. It is generally transmitted because people don’t wash their hands after using the bathroom. According to the CDC, it is very contagious and can infect anyone, but certain groups of people are at increased risk for contracting…
