Warm 2013 Stirs Debate

Everyone maintains their own unique opinions about global warming. Even scientific data is
sliced in various ways to support arguments falling on both sides of the issue. So it is with great
anticipation that climatologists assemble year-end information about global weather conditions.

While preliminary studies have been released for the calendar year 2013, the data used to
compile findings is actually based on information gleaned from January through October. The
full-year report will follow in March, once the November and December figures are assessed.

A preliminary look at 2013, illustrates a comparatively warm year, perhaps ranking among the
warmest average temperatures in history. In addition to last year's data, the UK Met Office 
released a forecast for similarly warm conditions in 2014.

The Hazards Of Urinating In Public

public urination
The header itself will probably make you think you don't need to read this because you're never ever going to do it anyway. But wait...before you definitively say that, think of circumstances you may find yourself in which makes you do just that - pee in public.

Public urination is viewed on different levels of tolerance. In some countries, it is a normal everyday occurrence, even if it usually happens at night. In others, usually in the Western side of the globe, the act of urinating publicly is taboo, even illegal. So, before you attempt it, know the local culture of the place you're in and the laws regarding public peeing.

Intuition Vs. Psychic Abilities

human nature
The words ‘intuition’ and ‘psychic’ might seem interchangeable, at first. They don’t, however, mean the same thing. This article is intended just to get you to delve in a little deeper and understand the difference, and maybe to understand the uses of intuition and psychic abilities a little better. To those ends, we’ll take a more general look at intuitive knowledge and then at how it specifically relates to your psychic experience.

There’s a lot to be said for intuition. For most of human history it was one of the major ways that knowledge was derived from the world. Nearly all of Aristotle’s writings were written “on a hunch” and plenty of his most important hunches are still being considered today.

When we talk about intuition we’re generally addressing a broad feeling, perhaps indistinct, but that can be very strong. It’s also been described as the “un-processed” mental information that all of us receive – and from all kinds of sources – but that we only use for certain situations.

Holy Regeneration, Batman!

Wow! If you needed another good reason to visit the site, the comic we're showing in today's post is definitely the one that will convince you once and for all...

That mother of all 'what if' comics by Stjepan Sejic is not only hilarious, it also actually makes sense. How else would the Dark Knight be still looking so good considering he's been fighting crime since 1939? 

The utility belt part is sheer genius... Great Tardis reference! Love it!

Age of Information Technology, the Career Choice of a Lifetime

Age of Information Technology, the Career Choice of a Lifetime

Whether you’re a student choosing your career path or a seasoned professional looking to change directions, the IT sector should be your first choice. Because let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to pursue a career in an industry that is expanding at an exponential rate and where job opportunities are virtually unlimited?

Information Technology, or IT, is a rather broad term that covers any and all aspects related to managing, processing and storing information through the use of computers. Today, IT plays a vital function in every workplace, from hospitals and banks to manufacturing and film making.

This dependence on computers and the networks that connect them has opened up a vast range of new job opportunities, and an in depth knowledge of computers is often required even for job seekers who choose to work in other industries.

Despite the fact that unemployment rates have been consistently rising over the past few years, the tech industry remains unaffected, and has actually added over 54,000 jobs since 2009. Many IT departments are even facing a shortage of skilled workers and according to a recent survey, 46% of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) are finding it increasingly difficult to find capable IT professionals.

This is excellent news for anyone hoping to find a job in this sector, but if the overflow of jobs hasn’t convinced you yet, consider another important factor—money. Salaries in the computer science and technology branch are known to be some of the world’s highest, ranging between US$50,000 and US$100,000, depending on education, experience and job description.

Of course, within the IT sector there are countless directions to take, and choosing one that suits you might be more challenging than you anticipated. To give you a quick peek into what’s in store for you, should you choose this industry; here are some of the highest paid  jobs in Information Technology.

USA: Housing In The Face Of White Privilege


The New Year is about to be upon us and the last thing anyone is thinking about is housing discrimination.  But once you start searching you can still see the result of our country’s long history with discrimination lingering in our housing market.  There is a giant income, life expectancy, and educational gap between African & Latino Americans and white folk.

North Pole News: Fun Arctic Facts

US Navy 040419-N-6027E-002 The crew of the Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Hampton (SSN 767) posted a sign reading North Pole made by the crew after surfacing in the polar ice cap region
We're in the midst of holidays filled with hope, magic and mythic joy, and as we spend time with family and friends, children pretend to sleep while waiting for the sound of hooves tapping on the roof and rustling around the tree in the living room. Someone has come from the North Pole just for them.

The North Pole carries such a sense of wonder for us. Even as adults we keep up the mystery of Santa's Village and flying reindeer in the back of our minds to hold on to a bit of that youth. But Santa's not the only real thing happening up there. Quite a bit happens at the North Pole year round that many of us never consider.

The X Factor Final

The end of the year in Britain is now always celebrated with three homages to excess – Christmas, New Year’s Eve and the X Factor final. Whilst the more traditional festivities still seem to be going strong, the X Factor has been suffering from a deficit of viewers this year and I don’t think the final will have done anything to revive its fortunes.
