NASA Moves To Save The World From Yellowstone Supervolcano Threat

NASA scientists have reportedly designed a way to avert a disaster which may threaten mankind’s continued existence – the threat of Yellowstone supervolcano eruption.

Brian Wilcox of the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab explained to BBC that the US space agency plans to “drill up to 10km down into the supervolcano, and pump down water at high pressure,” thus slowly extracting heat from it.

Why bother with the water, why not just release lava slowly and extract both the heat and pressure?

:lol:

I am reminded of the stupid sci-fi movie Crack in the World (1965) where they drill into the core of the earth and it eventually blows out a chunk of the earth and gives us a 2nd moon.

Credit card was just compromised. Chase shut it down.

Read your statements, the "new" thing is a $12.99 charge for the monthly Amazon Prime subscription. Something like that may slip by if you buy a lot from Amazon.

When I told them this morning about the charge (I get text notifications), they informed me that it was already the second charge on the card and that they were already watching the card for more.
And life goes on ......

My bank pays me 4.01% interest on my checking account balance when i use my debit card at least 15 times a month ($5 min purchase). I opened a second checking account with them (2 debit cards now) and have stopped using my CC.
A side benefit is that Ive reduced my spending and socked as much as possible into my 2 checking accounts, I withdrew all of my CU money and deposited it into my bank checking. Works for me


That's a nice deal. What bank??

Small and local, can't beat that. Keep the money in the community.

The fish fights back!!!


from the UK Telegraph :shock: :shock:

A fisherman almost died after a Dover sole he had caught jumped down his throat. His life was saved by paramedics after the fish wriggled free of his hand and choked him.

The unnamed 28-year-old's life was in jeopardy after he stopped breathing for three minutes after the six-inch long fish stuck in his throat.

It caused a complete obstruction of the man's airways and his face turned blue after the incident on Boscombe Pier in Bournemouth, Dorset.

His friends, scared for his life, rang 999 and tried to give him CPR while paramedics sped to the scene.

They arrived in just two minutes but by that time the patient had gone into cardiac arrest and had stopped breathing.

Paramedics used forceps to grab hold the fish's tail they could see down the man's throat.

They made five attempts to pull the fish free but the thwarted by its barb and gills which were stuck in the angler's throat.

They finally yanked it free on the sixth go but by that time the casualty had stopped breathing for three minutes.

The angler was revived in the ambulance and after being treated and checked over in hospital was allowed home having made a full recovery.

Paramedic Matt Harrison said that when they questioned the man's friends they explained he had been joking around with the catch and put it over his mouth.

Mr Harrison said that at that moment the fish wiggled free, promptly jumping straight down the patient's throat.

Mr Harrison said: "It was clear that we needed to get the fish out or this patient was not going to survive the short journey to Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

"I used a laryngoscope to fully extend the mouth and throat and saw what appeared like an altered colour of tissue in his throat.

"Using forceps I was able to eventually dislodge the tip of the tail and very carefully, so as not to break the tail off, I tried to remove it - although the fish's barbs and gills were getting stuck on the way back up.

"I was acutely aware that I only had one attempt at getting this right as if I lost grip or a piece broke off and it slid further out of sight then there was nothing more that we could have done to retrieve the obstruction.

"Eventually after six attempts the fish came out in one piece and to our amazement it was a whole Dover sole, measuring about 14cm in length."

He added: "I have never attended a more bizarre incident and don't think I ever will.

"We are all so glad the patient has no lasting effects from his cardiac arrest, which could so easily have had such a tragic and devastating outcome."

Martyn Box, the operations officer who also attended the incident said: "The boys (friends) were giving really good CPR on our arrival as instructed by the control room staff.

"Initially we didn't know the true extent of the situation or what the patient was choking on, but as we questioned them further we were told he had a whole fish stuck in his windpipe."

Mr Box added: "This story just highlights how important it is for friends or bystanders to step in and start CPR when someone's heart has stopped."

E-cig co. put Viagra, Cialis in vape liquids—the FDA is throbbing mad

The US Food and Drug Administration made clear on Thursday, October 11 that it has a major bone to pick with an electronic-cigarette vendor that illegally pumped prescription erectile dysfunction drugs into unapproved e-liquid products intended for vaping.

The cocky company, HelloCig Electronic Technology Co. Ltd, even advertised the vape liquids with labels and images using drug brand names.

FBI Steals Treasure Hunters' Civil War Gold Worth Up To $250 Million

Dennis and Kem Parada have spent years prospecting for a legendary stash of Civil War gold in Dents Run, Pennsylvania.

The Paradas spent five years digging in a cave on state land and two more years drilling atop the cave before going to the FBI in January with their evidence.

Last March, feeling quite certain they had found the treasure’s hiding place, the Paradas led the FBI to the spot.

They showed agents how their sophisticated metal detector went crazy when aimed at the spot where they believed the gold was hidden.

Within a month, the FBI had hired an outside firm to conduct an underground scan using a device called a gravimeter. The scan identified a large metallic mass with the density of gold, according to the Paradas and Warren Getler, an author and journalist who’s been working with them, reports the Associated Press.

The Paradas and Getler said the FBI agreed to let them observe the excavation, but then confined them to their car so they were unable to watch the digging.

At the end of the excavation, the FBI led the father-son duo to an empty hole, writes the AP:

^^Above quoted from Oct 28, 2017^^:

Oct 15, 2018: I just built my first fire in the stove this evening, it's 45 F degrees and windy currently.
High about 48 F tomorrow. TV calling for possible frost in North Arkansas.
