Today I decided to do something a bit different and I have pulled 5 topics currently being discussed by various bloggers. Tune in today to hear my thoughts on the following posts –
Summary - There may be as many as 8 Million Americans that are in a database as a potential threat during a national emergency. The article cites the following – 1. “According to a senior government official…”There exists a database of Americans, who, often for the slightest and most trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic, might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived ‘enemies of the state’ almost instantaneously.”
Summary – The value and cheapness of Ramen Noodles is offset by they lack of nutritional value. Protect from rodents. Hey why not post your Ramen Noodle recipe ideas in the comments section.
Summary - Sun spot activity is decreasing and while NASA expects a major increase in 2012 even some of their scientists predict a major decline from then into 2015. From 1645 – 1715 we had the Maunder Minimum that was the cause of the Little Ice Age during the “dark ages”. The Armagh observatory predicts a 2 (about 3.5 Fahrenheit) degree decline over the next 20 years.
Summary - CNN did a story with a video available at the blog about a man in Main that is growing food, storing wood and using alternative energy to prepare for peak oil. An embeded video from CNN shows solar car and homestead put togehter by a really cool guy who is a school teacher in Maine.
Summary – Former IMF chief economist Kenneth Rogoff (biw Harvard Professor) stated – “The worst of the global financial crisis is yet to come and a large U.S. bank will fail in the next few months as the world’s biggest economy hits further troubles.”
Mr. Rogogg further stated, “We’re not just going to see mid-sized banks go under in the next few months, we’re going to see a whopper, we’re going to see a big one, one of the big investment banks or big banks”
