In 2009, the Obama administration approved a set of loan guarantees to Solyndra that totaled over $520 million, which supposedly would have created thousands of new jobs.

Most of that money, $300 million, went to build a new manufacturing plant for the solar panels that cost more to build than the market price they could fetch. For some reason, the Department of Energy and the White House found this to be a solid business model. Eventually, the company went bankrupt despite an effort by the Obama administration to bring new cash into Solyndra - by illegally subordinating taxpayer standing in event of a collapse. The bankruptcy continued to unwind this week with the sale of the new facility. The $300 million facility managed to go for 30 cents on the dollar...

Jurors say they wanted to send message to Ukiah school district for death during swimming class.

In a stinging rebuke to local school officials, a Mendocino County jury Thursday awarded $4.25 million to the grieving parents of a 13-year-old boy who drowned at the city pool during a 2003 swimming class.

US honey bees have been dying by the tens of millions, with annual death rates of about 30 percent. With fewer bees to pollinate fruits and vegetables each year, 'beemageddon' may soon cause the collapse of the agriculture industry.

Honey bees pollinate more than 100 US crops, including apples, zucchinis, avocados and plums, that are worth more than $200 billion a year. Since 2006, about 10 million bee hives at an average value of $200 each have been lost in what scientists call the Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), according to a new report by the US Department of Agriculture. There are currently about 2.5 million honey bee colonies in the US, which is a drastic decrease from the 6 million that existed in 1947 and the 3 million that existed in 1990. Last winter alone, the honey bee population declined by 31.1 percent, with some beekeepers reporting losses of 90 to 100 percent. In the previous two winters, beekeepers lost about 22 percent of their populations.

Bush established the New Freedom Commission on Mental Health in April 2002 to conduct a "comprehensive study of the United States mental health service delivery system."

The president's commission found that "despite their prevalence, mental disorders often go undiagnosed" and recommended comprehensive mental health screening for "consumers of all ages," including preschool children. According to the commission, "Each year, young children are expelled from preschools and childcare facilities for severely disruptive behaviours and emotional disorders." Schools, are in a "key position" to screen the 52 million students and 6 million adults who work at the schools.

Dr. Charles Hall, a United States Air Force veteran and nuclear physicist shares his experience with extraterrestrial beings he came into contact with at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada in the 1960's.

Given the quantity of evidence now available in the public domain , stories and testimonies from individuals with verified educational and military backgrounds deserve to be heard without ridicule, and an open mind. What type of evidence am I talking about? I provide a very brief summary in the paragraphs below from a previous article I wrote. Keep in mind that this is a very minuscule amount of a large array of evidence that supports the UFO/extraterrestrial reality. Maybe this will inspire those interested to further their research, which can sometimes be overwhelming!

One wonders how long it will be before we start reading stories about people getting arrested merely for coming within eyesight or snapping photos at the entrance gate at one of these off-limits public lands the Administration of President Barack Obama is punitively closing down during the phony Federal government shutdown. A Massachusetts newspaper reported Tuesday on the "Gestapo" treatment locals received at the hands of Federal officers on a vacation trip out to Yellowstone National Park. Unlike earlier reports from the National Mall in Washington, D.C., where veterans seemed able to exercise their collective will to thwart Park Service officials who were "guarding" barricaded monuments, these people were actually rounded up and held at gunpoint in a Yellowstone park hotel.

We've heard that a "Godzilla" El Niño could be coming this winter and could help bring some relief from California's punishing four-year drought. But what do Godzilla El Niño winters really mean, based on past experience? Let's take a look.

California's drought has been worsened by a mass of relentless high pressure sitting atop the Gulf of Alaska, scaring off the cool, wet storms ferried by the jet stream away from the West Coast. "It moved the jet stream into northern Canada, swooping it into the Midwest and Boston," Patzert said. In California, "we were left high and dry, and Boston got our rain in the form of blizzards."

A "homeless" planet that is not orbiting a star and thus is free of any gravitation link has been discovered, Canadian and European astronomers are reporting.

University of Montreal researchers and European colleagues said it is the first isolated planet of its kind ever to be observed. "Although theorists had established the existence of this type of very cold and young planet, one had never been observed until today," astrophysicist Etienne Artigau said in a University of Montreal release Wednesday.

So-called "junk DNA," genetic material in our cells long considered without purpose, plays a vital role in regulating our genes, international researchers say.

A study of the 98 percent of the human genome that is not, strictly speaking, genes suggests more than three-quarters of entire allotment of DNA is active at some point in our lives, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. "This concept of 'junk DNA' is really not accurate," said Richard Myers, one of the leaders of the 400-scientist Encyclopedia of DNA Elements Project, nicknamed Encode. "It is an outdated metaphor to explain our genome."
