    George Clooney for United to Defeat Untruthful Misinformation And Support Science (UDUMASS) - With all the Information we have available today are we Dumber than ever before?

    We have way more information today, more quickly available, to many more people than ever before in our history. We should be the brightest and best-informed humans that ever lived on Earth. Yet we seem to have really conflicting ideas on health issues, diet issues, shooting up schools, abortions, climate change, gender ri...  more
    According to a new report from the United Nations, our planet is in worse shape than at any other time in human history. The Trump Administration has done everything they can to do nothing about climate change. They just don’t listen to scientists. A lot of people don’t.

    Take a Sweet Peek Inside Paris’ Oldest Chocolate Shop - Founded in 1761 on rue du Faubourg Montmartre

    As the confectionery capital of the world, Paris has no shortage of candy shops.

    À la Mère de Famille was founded in 1761 by Pierre-Jean Bernard, a young grocer. Aft...  more

    Berlin's "new" $8.5 billion airport is 15 years old and has never had a flight - How does this happen in modern times?

    I'd just have never believed this (and have not heard about this until today) that a country as efficient and organised as Germany could have a major initiative like this that just stalls every year for its opening. Even the desperate measure to "install manual fire alarms" never got the airport open. Some say it may just never open and may even be demolished. All I can say is...  more

    Huge 9.2" disappearing gun dating back to 1880's was discovered under a demolished swimming pool at a B&B in Cape Town

    Disappearing guns are considered to be a uniquely British feat of military engineering, and Hart’s research has found very few of these cannon-sized ‘guns’ were used worldwide. According to documents found in the Western Cape Archives and Records Service, at least three disappearing guns were brought to the Cape from England. The New South Wales State Heritage Register mentions...  more
