In “Action Comics” No. 900, Superman announces his plans to renounce his U.S. citizenship.In the issue, after appearing in support of protesters in the Middle East, Superman finds himself at odds with the U.S. president. Superman’s appearance has been construed as an official move by the U.S. government.
Superman thus plans to renounce his American citizenship at the United Nations the next day, and to work as a more global superhero.
The Man of Steel’s declaration, “I’m tired of having my actions construed as instruments of U.S. policy,” follows accusations that he caused an international incident in Tehran. Superman flew to the country during a huge protest, where..

The search for extra-terrestrial life (ET) seems to have stopped – at least for the moment, since the decades-long search for extraterrestrial life will be closing down due to a very common reason, which is the lack of funding. What is one going to do with a $50 million alien telescope array?
SETI (short for Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) is a project that has been long running, using..

We said it was too good to be true and, sadly, it was.
The students behind the discovery of an alien's body at a UFO 'crash site' have admitted that it was a 'crummy' hoax made out of stale bread.
Friends Timur Hilall, 18, and Kirill Vlasov, 19, shot the video that showed the alien's mangled remains frozen in snow in Irkutsk, Siberia.
The pair were..

This is without question the most aggregious example of the rampant global corporatist state. Big Pharma is literally trying to OUTLAW all herbal medicines, many of which have been used successfully and safely for THOUSANDS of YEARS.
The entire world needs to respond to this becasue trust me, if they got it done in Europe, America is next!
The most important thing is publicity. This needs to be challenged in court..

Σαββατοκύριακο μεγάλων εξελίξεων ήταν αυτό που μας πέρασε. Κι ενώ περιμέναμε (και φυσικά συνεχίζουμε να περιμένουμε την ολοκλήρωση των ζυμώσεων και των μετέπειτα εξελίξεων στην κυβέρνηση και στο ΠΑΣΟΚ) να “σκάσει η μπόμπα”, αυτή ναι μεν “έσκασε”, αλλά σε άλλο “τόπο”.
Έτσι, σύμφωνα με επιστολές που κατέθεσαν Καζάκης και Ληναίος, δημοσιοποιούν την αποχώρησή τους από το κίνημα “Σπίθα”, το οποίο -ούτε λίγο ούτε πολύ- καταγγέλουν ως κατασκεύασμα ξένων μυστικών υπηρεσιών…!

Asteroid as strong as 15 atomic bombs past Earth 3 days ago at just ten times the distance of the moon
Astronomers first spotted the cigar-shaped rock spinning through space on Monday evening and tracked it.
The star-gazers were baffled by why the asteroid 'blinked' at them until they realised that due to is long shape, the darkness came when it rotated slightly out of view.
Thankfully, the 50m long rock that could have destroyed a small country went barely noticed as it passed earth at a distance of some 2,085,321 miles.
'Usually, when we see an asteroid strobe on and off like that,..
The Martin Aircraft Company has created the first jetpack that will be commercially available, the Daily Mail reports.
The jetpack has a height of five feet, width of five-and-a-half feet and a length of five feet, and features a dual-propeller construction that uses fans to provide lift instead of jets of exhaust gas.
The company's chief executive, Richard Lauder, expects the jetpacks will be sold to a variety of different buyers--from emergency service personnel and private users to the military.
Its fuel capacity is..
Όλοι είδαμε τον μοτοσικλετιστή αστυνομικό να καίγεται από τη μολότοφ στη διαδήλωση της Τετάρτης (23/2/2011). Επίσης, όλοι είδαμε έναν άλλο μοτοσικλετιστή να χτυπά διαδηλωτή. Τα ΜΜΕ αλλά και το ελληνικό διαδίκτυο άφησαν να εννοείται ότι αυτά τα δύο ήταν διαφορετικά γεγονότα.
Η αλήθεια αποκαλύπτεται στο βίντεο του CNN. Ποια αλήθεια; Ότι και οι δύο μοτοσικλετιστές αστυνομικοί ήταν στην ίδια ομάδα. Όπως θα δείτε στο βίντεο μπήκαν με μεγάλη ταχύτητα στην πλατεία Συντάγματος κατευθυνόμενοι καταπάνω στους διαδηλωτές για να τους χτυπήσουν με τις μοτοσικλέτες τους! Αυτός που προπορευόταν τα κατάφερε και πάτησε έναν διαδηλωτή, ο δεύτερος που ακολουθούσε ακριβώς από πίσω του,..

Regenerative medicine leapt forward as Japanese scientists were able to form the precursor of an eye from embryonic stem cells.
How a cluster of humble stem cells can transform into a complex organ, such as the startlingly sophisticated eye, has long been a mystery.
Now we’re a step closer to understanding this natural miracle of self-organisation care of a study by Japanese researchers that has shown how stem cells can develop into a embryonic eye. Writing in Nature, they have shown that..

|Fermilab's Tevatron, the most powerful particle accelerator in the US|
After running experiments on a particle accelerometer, scientists noticed a bump in the data. It was so unusual, in fact, that scientists think it could mean they’ve discovered a new particle.
“Nobody knows what this is,” Christopher Hill of Fermilab told The New York Times’ Dennis Overbye. “If it is real, it would be the most significant discovery in physics in half a century.”
Fermilab’s Tevatron Collider Detector (CDF) was designed to study..

Researchers examined the performance of germ-free mice, who lack gut bacteria, on a kind of maze used to test anxiety-like behaviors. The maze is in the shape of a plus with two open and two closed arms; normally, mice will avoid open spaces to minimize the risk of being seen by predators.
Normal mice, as expected, spent far more time in the closed arms when placed in the maze. The germ-free mice, however, entered the open arms far more often, spending significantly more time there than in the closed arms.
According to the study..

The 52-year-old British angler Jeremy Wade caught the aptly-named goliath tigerfish during a fishing expedition up the Congo River in Africa.
The brave fisherman was forced to hold the fish at arms-length for fear of being bitten by its razor-sharp teeth while posing with it for the camera.
The goliath tigerfish is one of the most fearsome freshwater fish in the world and..

Η κυβέρνηση του κ. Παπανδρέου θα επαναφέρει τον «θεσμό της επιφάνειας», ο οποίος καταργήθηκε το 1946 με την Εισαγωγή του Αστικού μας Κώδικα!
Oπως, εξήγησε στο Υπουργικό Συμβούλιο ο Υπουργός Επικρατείας κ. Παμπούκης, η κυβέρνηση δεν θα πωλήσει περιουσία του δημοσίου, αλλά μόνο την …επιφάνεια!
People looking to spice up their love life should try adding saffron and ginseng to their diet, according to a new study.
Both are proven to increase sexual desire, according to the latest scientific review of natural aphrodisiacs.
Saffron, which is produced from the dried stigmas of the Crocus sativus flower, is a spice commonly used in Spanish, Italian and Indian cuisine. Gingseng is a root which is..

The reputation of 'Brits abroad' has never been one to be proud of, but a new survey has revealed that the British really are the worst type of tourist.
The Brits cleaned up in nearly every category including 'not attempting to learn any local language', 'being drunk and disorderly' and 'not trying the local food and drink'. Our lack of generosity when it comes to..
THEY may look like real tanks and missiles, but some of the weapons in Russia's arsenal may not all be what they seem.
For the army is making increasing use of inflatable replicas - decoys deployed in a cunning attempt to deceive potential enemies.
"These machines are effective in deceiving the enemy, and they protect the real equipment," the Rusbal plant director, Victor Talanov, said.
In another recent example, the Serbian army used similar decoys during the country's bombardment by NATO forces in 1999 and the Alliance actually destroyed fewer genuine targets than it thought.
It's very difficult to distinguish a real tank from a fake one. For example,..
Sometimes engineers get excited about things without stopping to ask the question: Why? Why is this better? Why would anyone want this?
Such questions, it would appear, were not asked in the labs of Acer. Its latest offering, the Iconia, is one of the most bizarre products to ever make it to production. The Iconia, when closed, looks like a laptop. When opened, however, all is revealed: the Iconia is actually two 14-inch touchscreens joined at a hinge.
This is, frankly, insane. Instead of a physical keyboard..

Novus ordo seclorum
(Latin for "New Order of the Ages")
The rebels in Libya are in the middle of a life or death civil war and Moammar Gadhafi is still in power and yet somehow the Libyan rebels have had enough time to establish a new Central Bank of Libya and form a new national oil company. Perhaps when this conflict is over those rebels can become time management consultants. They sure do get a lot done. What a skilled bunch of rebels - they can fight a war during the day and draw up a new central bank and a new national oil company at night without any outside help whatsoever. If only the rest of us were so versatile! But isn't forming a central bank something that could be done after the civil war is over? According to Bloomberg, the..

An English girl Polly Neti (12 years old) is an ordinary girl, except that her blood is blue... At the birth the hospital's blood center has assured parents that the child will develop normaly. When asked why the blood is blue? The answer was unexpected ... The reason for this condition was the contraceptive pill who took the girl's mother for several years before her pregnancy.

"In the world there are about 7000 people whose blood has a ...blue hue."
