Stephen Hawking Proposes: “There Are No Black Holes”

Most physicists foolhardy enough to write a paper claiming that “there are no black holes” — at least not in the sense we usually imagine — would probably be dismissed as cranks. But when the call to redefine these cosmic crunchers comes from Stephen Hawking, it’s worth taking notice. In a paper posted online, the physicist, based at the University of Cambridge, UK, and one of the creators of modern black-hole theory, does away with the notion of an event horizon, the invisible boundary thought to shroud every black hole, beyond which nothing, not even light, can escape.

Why Avoiding The News Makes You Smarter

By: | High Existence

Some time ago I stopped reading and watching the news. No newspapers, no news programs and no internet snippets of world drama. I stopped because I didn’t feel it had any positive effect on my life and I suspected it might even have a harmful effect. Sometimes when watching or reading the news I felt myself anticipating for another big event in the world, something to shake the very core of my being. Other times I checked my smart-phone every hour to get my news-fix. Was I truly in need to know what comes through the filters of the media or was I just a news-junky? Read more of this post

Welcome to Part-Time America

Written by: Sal Pezzino -@sp1989

If you were to look at the state of the United States economy, on paper it would seem as though everything is OK. The Dow Jones has been flirting with 16,000, stock prices are soaring, and the unemployment rate keeps going down. The truth is that it is all entirely artificial. Read more of this post

Am I Getting Old, or Are We Just Screwed?

Written by: Sal Pezzino @sp1989

I am 23 years old and have grown up appreciating all of the music, pop culture icons, toys, technology, and the like. The past few years have been strange, I would say it started around the time I started college but I don’t think that has any correlation with the way I have been feeling over the past few years. I have just grown completely dissatisfied with my generation and the things going on around me. Read more of this post

America 2050: A Look Into The Future

With time comes change. So, what could possibly be our outlook for 2050 here in America? More and more people are becoming American citizens, new Religions and so much more.

Researchers expect that by 2050, what is now the majority will become the minority.

Who is Lying to Generation-Y?

For those who don’t know, Generation-Y is anyone born in the early 1980’s up to and including anyone born before 2005. Many people have dubbed this generation, “Generation Y Me?”, “The Millennials”, and “The Lost Generation”. For the purposes of this article I would like to focus on “The Lost Generation” because I find it to be the most insulting but unfortunately accurate. Read more of this post

Why You Think Cannabis is Illegal vs. Why Cannabis is REALLY Illegal (Infographic)

I would like to believe that most somewhat sane/consciously-aware individuals will agree with me when I say that cannabis is essentially harmless, if not very beneficial for your overall health and well-being. Denial of this fact is simply a matter of ignorance and closed minded-ness, something a lot of us struggle with on a daily basis. Read more of this post

Why Cable News is Still Destroying This Country

A while back I wrote an article about how I feel cable news is destroying this country. That article can be found here and in it criticized all of the popular media outlets for polarizing this country so far to the left and right that there is no such thing as middle ground anymore.

The Censored TED Talks (VIDEOS)

These two TED talks that I am posting about have two things in common; They are both mind-blowingly awesome, AND they were both not only temporarily removed from the TED archive by TED Curator Chris Anderson, but also were also removed from YouTube! What do they have to hide? Read more of this post

What Type of Cigarette Do You Smoke, Doc?

doctors smoking What Type of Cigarette Do You Smoke, Doc?

 

Doctors use to advertise for cigarette companies. How funny is that? Actually it’s not funny – it’s pretty sad. Did they really not know how bad cigarettes were for you back then?

It’s interesting to think, “what if something that doctors promote today as “healthy” are really not.”

Cigarettes kill you, but it’s your life.
