FINALLY, A GOOD HONEST REACTION FROM THE MEDIA !!!
Sacramento, CA News Anchor scared in halloween joke 10/27/2007 Friday morning News10 Good Morning in Sacramento, CA got a visit from some spooky guests. Yes, that's the weather anchor hiding under the desk.
Dan Elliott: "I like to think of myself as not easily scared or taken aback but it was a case of both for me today on News10 Good Morning."
Kelly Jackson: "I always wondered if any sound would come out of my mouth if I was frightened, and I didn't disappoint! It was a Scooby Doo moment!"
Monica Woods: "As soon as I saw what the screaming was about, I hit the floor. My only other option was to jump in Dan's lap! I think I made the right choice."
H G Wells' Science Fiction novel The Time Machine (which was later adapted into two films - this picture is from the 2002 version) the human race has evolved into two species, the highly intelligent and wealthy Eloi...
...and the frightening, animalistic Morlock (as seen in the 1960 film version of the classic book)
Human race will 'split into two different species' By NIALL FIRTH
The human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures, according to a top scientist.
100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed.
The alarming prediction comes from evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry from the London School of Economics, who says that the human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000.
The report claims that after they reach their peak around the year 3000 humans will begin to regress Enlarge the image
These humans will be between 6ft and 7ft tall and they will live up to 120 years.
"Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates," says the report, which suggests that advances in cosmetic surgery and other body modifying techniques will effectively homogenise our appearance.
Men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises, according to Curry in a report commissioned for men's satellite TV channel Bravo.
Women will all have glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes and pert breasts, according to Curry.
Racial differences will be a thing of the past as interbreeding produces a single coffee-coloured skin tone.
The future for our descendants isn't all long life, perfect bodies and chiselled features, however.
While humans will reach their peak in 1000 years' time, 10,000 years later our reliance on technology will have begun to dramatically change our appearance.
Medicine will weaken our immune system and we will begin to appear more child-like.
Dr Curry said: "The report suggests that the future of man will be a story of the good, the bad and the ugly.
"While science and technology have the potential to create an ideal habitat for humanity over the next millennium, there is the possibility of a monumental genetic hangover over the subsequent millennia due to an over-reliance on technology reducing our natural capacity to resist disease, or our evolved ability to get along with each other.
"After that, things could get ugly, with the possible emergence of genetic 'haves' and 'have-nots'."
Dr Curry's theory may strike a chord with readers who have read H G Wells' classic novel The Time Machine, in particular his descriptions of the Eloi and the Morlock races.
In the 1895 book, the human race has evolved into two distinct species, the highly intelligent and wealthy Eloi and the frightening, animalistic Morlock who are destined to work underground to keep the Eloi happy.
A nearly unprecedented outburst has raised Comet 17P/Holmes from a 17th-magnitude object visible only through large telescopes into plain view without optical aid. The comet lies in Perseus the Hero and will remain visible all night from most of the Northern Hemisphere.
This morning, observers in Japan reported Comet Holmes glowing at 3rd magnitude — bright enough to see with naked eyes even from most cities — and still growing brighter. If you have clear weather tonight, head out once the sky darkens and look toward the northeast.
The comet lies about 30° high — one-third of the way from the horizon to straight overhead — at 9 p.m. local daylight time. It then appears about twice as high as the bright star Capella. For observers at mid-northern latitudes, the comet climbs directly overhead between 2 and 3 a.m. You'll have to contend with a nearly Full Moon all night, but you still should see the comet plainly.
Unlike most bright comets, Holmes doesn't possess a long tail. It looks just like a modestly bright star, so you'll need to use the finder chart to zero in on it. Even large telescopes reveal no details. The comet currently lies 150 million miles (245 million km) from Earth and 225 million miles (365 million km) from the Sun.
No one knows how long the outburst will last. When London observer Edwin Holmes discovered the comet in November 1892, it was also in an outburst and some 100,000 times brighter than it normally is. During that appearance, the comet faded 3 magnitudes in the course of a week.
Donald Trump, a co-owner of “Miss USA”, “Miss Universe” and “Miss Teen USA” pageants, has come up with a new reality TV show which will take us into the daily lives of the women who currently hold these titles.
The premise is fairly straightforward. Three beautiful beauty queens live together in a Midtown Manhattan high-rise apartment. The 8 part series will show the winners going about their pageant obligations.
The reality show will allow the audience to glimpse the cat fights, jealousy, anger and hostility that is sure to occur when you put beautiful and ambitious women in the same living space for an extended period of time.
The cameras will follow Katie Blair, Miss Teen USA 2006, and her successor, Hilary Cruz; Riyo Mori, this years Miss Universe; and Rachel Smith, the current Miss USA as they do photo shoots, and perform their other pageant obligations.
Donald Trump, no stranger to the camera, will pop in at intervals as will Tara Connor, Miss USA 2006. Connor made news near the end of her reign when she nearly lost her crown for allegations of drug and alcohol use. She entered rehab and got a second chance from The Donald.
Trump said he brought Connor on board because she is popular with the public and because celebrities talk openly about their problems with addiction. She will give the women tips on makeup and navigating the media - her areas of expertise.
BILL MAHER SUPPORTS ALL OF THE AGENDAS HE PRETENDS TO OPPOSE. HE IS READING FROM THE SAME SCRIPT. HE JUST HAS A DIFFERENT PART
Maher Audience a Real Pain During tonight’s broadcast of the HBO program Real Time with Bill Maher, all 9/11 conspiracy hell broke loose. Friday, October 19, 2007 at 8:30 PM By FilmStew Staff
Kevin Parry/WireImage.com Photo On this night, at the diametricallly opposed end of a luxury lounge There was Bill Maher, chatting with his Friday, October 19th panel – L.A. Times and Time Magazine columnist Joel Stein, Hardball TV host Chris Matthews and Texas Democratic congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee – when the perils of doing one of television’s few live programs reared its ugly head. From the audience, a male individual started shouting incomprehensibly about the idea that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were in fact controlled government explosions. (Maher has vocally opposed that view.) “Sometimes here at CBS, I wish the sound wasn’t working,” Maher wryly deadpanned, referring to an earlier episode of the 2007 season during which there were major audio problems, forcing Maher at one point to use a hand-held mike. As the audience objector continued, Maher’s mood changed. “Hey, do we have some f*cking security in this building? Or do I have to come over and kick this guy’s ass out of here?” Sure enough, Maher then bounded from the stage and stormed up the aisle, arriving in time to watch the man try to unfurl a banner and CBS security finally hauling him away. But it wasn’t over quite yet. After Maher returned to his chair and observed, “Is it that hard to throw someone out of a building?”, a woman’s shouting voice could then be heard, accusing the comedian of 'cowardice.' “I’ll kick your ass out of here too,” Maher promised in a very assured politically incorrect tone. “This isn’t the Iowa caucus; it’s not a debate,” Maher continued. “It’s a debate between us [he and the three-person panel]. You’re in the audience; audience comes from the Latin, 'To listen.'” But it was Stein who had the best Maher-style last word zinger. “I was only allowed two guests, so things should be OK after this,” he joked. A third burst of audience interruption then briefly ebbed and flowed before CBS Television City security staff wrapped up a very busy night. "Don't be gentle with him," Maher advised. "Ass kicking is what's called for."
