NASA’s reputation on the line as they launch UFO study

NASA’s reputation on the line as they launch UFO study
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has made the decision to launch a study that specifically gathers information on unidentified flying objects, better known as UFOs. This decision comes amid harsh opinions from critics who put NASA’s credibility at risk with such topics.  NASA is launching an independent team led by David Spergel, an astrophysicist who is the president of the Simons Foundation. This team will be responsible for gathering open-source information to ascertain a new understanding of UFOs. The collection of information will then be categorized and analyzed to create a foundation for how to complete the understanding of unidentified flying objects.  UFOs are now considered unidentified aerial phenomena or UAPs. With a recent hearing involving the Department of Defense and other relevant military branches presenting their case for UAPs and their existence, it was decided to allocate $100,000 to form an investigative team. This was met with skepticism from the surrounding scientific and political communities, however. This will be the first time that NASA will openly launch and be involved in a topic of study as conspiratorial sounding as the existence of unidentified flying phenomena. The mission chief for NASA, Thomas Zurbuchen acknowledged that there was a...

Biden announces he's giving another $1 Billion in aid to Ukraine
President Biden announced on Wednesday that he will be giving another $1 billion in military support to Ukraine after its leaders pleaded for more ammunition.  The latest package to be sent will include artillery rockets, rounds for howitzers, and anti-ship missiles.  The additional aid will bring the total amount of support the U.S. has provided Ukraine to $55 billion since Russia invaded over 110 days ago.  The latest push comes after Ukrainian officers reported that they were having trouble matching Russia’s shell inventory in rocket strikes and artillery battles.  “I informed President Zelensky that the United States is providing another $1 billion in security assistance for Ukraine, including additional artillery and coastal defense weapons, as well as ammunition for the artillery and advanced rocket systems that the Ukrainians need to support their defensive operations in Donbas,” Biden said in a statement. The latest weapons package will include 18 howitzers, two Harpoon coastal defense systems, artillery rockets, 36,000 rounds of ammunition, secure radios, thousands of night vision devices, and funding for training.  The money will be sourced in part from Pentagon stockpiles and as well as the congressional Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative.  Biden also revealed that he will be providing aid...

Geico ordered to pay woman $5.2 million for catching HPV in car

Geico ordered to pay woman $5.2 million for catching HPV in car
Geico, a large insurance company, has been ordered to pay the plaintiff $5.2 million to cover the costs of a sexually transmitted disease.  A Missouri appellate court rules that Geico must cover the cost of “injuries and losses” from contracting a disease obtained during an incident in 2017. This incident occurred with a man who was a motorist insured through Geico. This man known as “M.B.” in court documents had a 2014 Hyundai Genesis sedan that was insured through Geico.  Geico refused to acknowledge the claim and denied paying out any money. “M.O.”, the plaintiff, alleged that she had sexual encounters with M.B. in his insured Hyundai sedan in 2017. As a result of these sexual encounters, M.O. contracted the human papillomavirus or HPV which is a sexually transmitted disease that can cause genital warts.  In a 2014 Hyundai Genesis, the plaintiff was infected by her boyfriend with the virus. She claimed to have had sex with the motorist in his car which was insured by Geico. As a result, when she found out she had contracted genital warts, she made plans to get justice. She and M.B. signed an arbitration agreement where an arbitrator awarded M.O. with $5.2 million...

3-year-old boy found alive after surviving alone in the Montana wilderness for 2 days
One of the most terrifying situations a parent could find themselves in came true for a Montana family recently when 3-year-old boy Ryker Webb went missing in the wilderness last weekend. The boy went missing around 5 p.m. on Friday evening while he was playing with the family dog outside of the home, according to a Facebook post shared by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office. The police department was notified of his disappearance when a “concerned neighbor” reported a “possible missing child in the Bull Lake area” according to the Facebook post shared by the police department.  According to Lincoln County Sheriff Darren Short, the child and his father “were in the yard together” when the father went inside the home for a moment,” according to a local news station. After returning, the father soon realized his father “was gone.” Eventually, neighbors received a Code Red Alert and were asked to search their own properties and structures for the child. According to authorities, when he was found on Sunday, there were more than 50 people actively searching for him. Fortunately, he was found “in good spirits and apparently healthy” when he was found on Sunday in Sanders County, Montana. After...

3 people stabbed in an Encino, CA hospital by a man identifying as a patient
A man was accused of stabbing a doctor and two nurses inside Encino Hospital Medical Center on Friday.  According to the L.A. Police Department, he identified himself as a patient prior to the attack.  He was taken into custody late Friday after a four-hour standoff. He was later identified as 35-year-old Ashkan Amirsoleymani.  The man was arrested on three counts of attempted murder. Bail has been set at $3 million.  The police failed to negotiate with the man who hid out near the emergency room after the stabbing took place.  The block of Ventura Blvd. where the hospital is located transformed into a chaotic scene as SWAT teams moved in.  Investigators estimate that the attack took place at 3:50 PM. One ultrasound technician saw the attacker just before he committed the violent act.  “He looked high. He just looked very anxious. He was sweating a lot. Half his shirt was drenched with sweat. He had a dog with him,” the technician said.  The police eventually contained the attacker in the room near the ER where he was hiding out. People evacuated the building in front of spectators who were shocked by what they saw.  “We saw people coming out. Bloody...

Coca-Cola is moving forward with its alcohol experiment

Coca-Cola is moving forward with its alcohol experiment
When someone brings up Coca-Cola, you likely think of the popular soft drink or another Coca-Cola product. However, few are aware that the soda giant has partially pivoted to alcoholic beverages. The company is moving forward with its experiment in the alcoholic drink space that has the potential to transition to the sale of Coca-Cola spirits and other alcoholic beverages across the world. Will Coca-Cola Shake up the Alcoholic Drink Game? Coca-Cola’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman Jams Robert B. Quincey recently gave a speech at the Sanford C. Bernstein Strategic Decisions conference earlier this month in which he touched on the prospect for the company’s experimentation with alcoholic beverages to grow into something more significant. Quincey responded to the inquiry by stating that Coca-Cola’s experiments with alcoholic beverages have been interesting. Coca-Cola has branched out in recent years, offering its own soda-coffee concoction along with Topo Chico Hard Seltzer through a partnership with Molson Coors Beverage Co. The corporate tandem is also poised to release Simply Spiked to the public in the months ahead.  Spiked is the alcoholic form of the company’s Simply brand drinks. Fortune Favors the Bold When it comes to business and most other aspects of...

My neighbor’s moving away gift was smeared dog poo on my front door

My neighbor's moving away gift was smeared dog poo on my front door
Courtney Cobb, 20, and her 23-year-old boyfriend Chapman moved into their home in Wallsend, North Tyneside, England in 2021. They were friendly with their neighbor at first but soon found him to be troublesome due to his smoking and playing loud music. This was especially concerning considering they had a newborn baby.  The neighbor finally decided to move out but stopped at the couple’s doorstep for revenge before he left. They believe he smeared dog poop on their front door and handle.  “We thought we heard someone at our door touching the handle, but we thought it’s not the postman or anything, so we left it,” Courtney described. “A delivery driver came to drop off our food and he was like, ‘what’s that on your door?’ and we looked and just knew straight away who it was." “My partner was furious, and I was just scared. I was crying.”  Courtney texted the man about the incident, and he denied being responsible. However, she found out that he was bragging about it to other neighbors on the street.  The police were called to the scene, but no arrests were made.  The neighbor also spoke to the press to defend his honor. ...
