Last US Blockbuster video rental stores to close

The last 300 Blockbuster Video film rental stores in the US are closing in the face of unrelenting competition from online digital video, corporate parent company Dish Network has said.

About 2,800 people are expected to lose their jobs by early January.

The once-dominant chain filed for bankruptcy, pummelled by Netflix’s DVD-by-post and online streaming services.

Is it time to leave… again?

I have read several accounts that strongly suggest we (humans) are not from this planet. There is some evidence and conjecture that we may have come here from Mars after we had made the planet inhabitable, but that we aren’t even from there, but further afield. Suggesting the possibility that we are in fact a race of space nomads.

If we are not from here, that would explain why they can’t find the so called ‘missing link’ between us and apes; there isn’t one.

We have succeeded in stripping this planet and making it uninhabitable, is this why we are searching so far and wide in the galaxies at great expense to find the next port of call?

Was Douglas Adams spoof ‘Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy‘ terribly far off the mark? “So long and thanks for all the fish!”

Maybe we’ve found our next home…

Star is crowded by super-Earths

An impression of what the sky might look like from the exoplanet Gliese 667Cd, looking towards the parent star and featuring, at top, the other super-Earths in the habitable zone

Scientists have identified three new planets around a star they already suspected of hosting a trio of worlds.

It means this relatively nearby star, Gliese 667C, now has three so-called super-Earths orbiting in its “habitable zone”.

This is the region where temperatures ought to allow for the possibility of liquid water, although no-one can say for sure what conditions are really like on these planets.

Gliese 667C is 22 light-years away.

As humans pass through the ages, we leave relics behind…

 

What relics will we leave for future generations to find?

Are these destined to be museum exhibits of the future?

Sex Sells

It doesn’t matter what. You use sex and it sells.

Look at this add, you’ve probably seen it before, but I bet it sells.

Sexy Advertising Collection

Whether it’s good or bad – sexuality is considered one of the most powerful tools of marketing and particularly advertising. A recent survey in the United Kingdom shows that about two thirds of women thought that advertisers had gone too far in using sex to sell product. Use of sexual imagery in advertising has been criticized on various grounds.

However in these days it is a quiet tough task to surprise people, but there is one thing which never tire people. It is sexuality….
