---Iran’s Undisputed Weapon: Power to Block the Strait of Hormuz
In Iran's confrontation with the West over its nuclear program, the Islamic Republic has one undisputed weapon: The ability to block the most important oil transit choke point in the world. Although military strategists and diplomatic experts have worried about Iran's capability to throw the global economy into chaos for more than three decades, there has been little progress in developing alternative petroleum routes to defuse the power of Iran's threat to block the Strait of Hormuz. (See interactive graphic: "Strait of Hormuz: The World's Key Oil Choke Point")...

Russia Set to Build World’s Most Powerful Laser StationRussia is set to build the world’s most powerful dual-purpose laser station at the approximate cost of 45 billion rubles ($1.5 billion), a Russian nuclear official said on Thursday.

National worker ID card a bad idea, says UC Berkeley studyThe plan to finally stop illegal immigration is simple enough, according to some lawmakers -- create an identity for all legal American workers using fingerprints or vein scans. Don't do it, says a first-of-its-kind study being released Thursday by UC Berkeley Law School's Warren Institute on Law and Social Policy. Requiring all workers to get a biometric card to verify their right to work would cost the United States at least $45 billion, infringe upon civil liberties, hurt the poor and fail to stop illegal employment, according to the report. "This would be...
Russian Scientists Breach Antarctica's Lake Vostok—ConfirmedRussian scientists have confirmed that they have penetrated Antarctica's Lake Vostok, an event that may "expand the limits of life on Earth," a U.S. scientist says. At 8:25 p.m. Moscow time on Sunday, drillers hit lake water at a depth of 12,355 feet (3,766 meters)—making them the first ever to probe a subglacial lake, according to a statement provided by Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute. Mahlon C. Kennicutt II, a professor of oceanography at Texas A&M University, said that the confirmation appears to be accurate. That's because...
Foreclosure fallout: Five banks to pay US$25B to homeowners, statesWASHINGTON — Five big U.S. banks accused of abusive mortgage practices have agreed to a US$25-billion government settlement that may help roughly one million borrowers but is no magic bullet for the ailing housing market. The record state-federal settlement will spread relief widely in the form of mortgage relief and US$2,000 payments to borrowers who lost their homes to foreclosure. It will also release the banks — Bank of America Corp., Wells Fargo & Co., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and Ally Financial Inc. — from civil government...

Genetically Engineered Generic Drugs To Be Unleashed Without Mandatory Testing
Under the healthcare reform of 2010, the FDA was given the authority to regulate generic versions of genetically engineered (GE) drugs. Furthermore, some genetically engineered drugs may not even receive human or animal testing — it all depends on whether or not the FDA deems it necessary. The FDA is proposing new guidelines — an ‘abbreviated pathway’ — for generic drug makers to make similar, but not necessarily identical, generic drugs called ‘biosimilars’. The FDA will accept the drug studies from the original GE drug for approval, and will only require animal or human testing if the FDA deems it appropriate. This policy is greatly lacking because the ingredients and amounts of the ingredients may be different. Never mind that GE product testing standards are woefully deficient to begin with, especially regarding long-term organ damage and other dangers. Or that different ingredients may have a negative synergistic effects.
Get Your Kids Ready For The Technological Singularity, Says Jonathan Mugan
In the future your children won’t just be competing against other children, they’ll be pitted against robots and computers too. What’s a parent to do?

His book, The Curiosity Cycle helps parents find simple ways of inspiring children to have the flexible thinking and boundless interest they’ll need to stay competitive in the 21st Century marketplace. It’s not about rote memorization or even developing specialized skills, it’s about raising kids who can understand the world through ever evolving models that they challenge and refine. An old school child will answer questions on a test because they are told they have to.
Syria Under Siege; Concerns Bible Prophecy Experts!Once upon a long time ago, the Hebrew prophet Isaiah predicted that the Syrian capital city of Damascus would someday cease to exist. Isaiah, whose prophetic ministry spanned between 740 – 701 BC declared that it would be reduced to rubble. Some scholars believe this prophecy found fulfillment around 732 BC, shortly after Isaiah presaged it, when the Assyrians conquered Aram. Aram was the ancient name for much of modern day Syria. But if it was fulfilled then, why did Jeremiah predict a similar scenario over a century later? And, why did Isaiah mention Assyria 37 times throughout his 66 chapters, but never once mention it in Isaiah 17. For instance Isaiah 8:3-7 clearly identifies an Assyrian conquest of Damascus. This found fulfillment in Isaiah’s lifetime, but Damascus still exists today. Furthermore the article below points out that Israel seemingly downs Damascus and that it appears to be an overnight destruction.
Australian man claiming to be 'The Messiah' "I'm Jesus. Deal with it." - Inside Australia's Chilling New Cult
Sunday Night infiltrates one of the world's most worrying new cults, run by an Australian man claiming to be 'The Messiah'.
Cult experts have warned that a 47-year-old Queensland man and self-proclaimed "Jesus" is in the early stages of developing a dangerous religious sect comparable to WACO, which ended in mass-suicide, Channel 7's Sunday Night has reported.
Former real estate developer, Alan John Miller, from Kingaroy in Queensland, is the leader of Gods Way of Love. He has an estimated 100,000 DVDs in global circulation and financially survives on collecting donations from followers. He also uses donations to acquire property for sanctuaries - in preparation for doomsday.
