No proof, but interesting evidence of a variety of changes in the weather on a few planets that looks like it is arriving more or less in sync with changes on Earth. Somehow I don’t think using your cars is causing it…
First off, the weakest change. A Dust Storm on Mars. Yeah, big deal. Mars and dust storms. The Usual comes to mind. But there are two things about this that caught my eye.
First off, it was NOT a U.S.A. or Russian report / satellite.

In the news lately has been a measles outbreak. Some 100+ cases linked to a start in California.
Now The Media have seized on it as a Big Deal that some folks are not vaccinating their kids. Fine. But now Fox has had a couple of shows with all sorts of high handed moralizing about how we must force parents to vaccinate their kids for the good of the community and other kids. Um “Logic Fault!”.
I expect this kind of thing from CNN (who has done some of it, though with more high moral snobbery and less moralized shouting…) but Fox? WHERE is your sense of liberty and freedom, folks?
The Logic Fault
The thing that shouted at me, but seems lost on Talking Heads with Opinions, is the simple fact that if a cohort of 90% of the kids have been vaccinated against measles, then the “at risk…

Ioyama lies in the volcanically active Kirishima mountain range – roughly 40 miles from the Sendai nuclear plant. “There is…

This particular time-lapse of undulatus asperatus clouds was created by animating still frames of a video taken by storm chaser Alex Schueth, who recorded the clouds over Lincoln, Nebraska, on July 7, 2014.
This animation of undulatus asperatus was uploaded to Imgur and is a gif of the video taken by Alex Schueth.
Undulatus asperatus, which means “agitated waves,” was originally submitted to the WMO in 2009 by the Cloud Appreciation Society. The Cloud Appreciation Society petitioned the WMO, asking for a new classification for the cloud since “photographs of this cloud formation had been sent in by Society members over the years, and we’d never known quite how to classify them since we felt that they didn’t easily fit into the existing cloud terms.
The WMO considered the request and has yet to confirm the official classification of undulatus asperatus or determine whether the item should enter…

The next time you visit a hospital, it is your wallet that may end up hurting the most. All over the United States, it has become common practice for hospitals to wildly inflate medical bills. For example, it has been reported that some hospitals are charging up to 30 dollars for a single aspirin pill. And as you will see below, some victims report being billed tens of thousands of dollars for a non-surgical hospital visit that lasts only a few hours. When something is seriously wrong with us, most of us never stop to ask our health professionals how much it will cost to actually treat us. In that moment, we are desperate and we just want someone to help us. Many doctors and hospitals take full advantage of this by billing their “customers” as much as they feel they can possible get…
