Libya Fighting Intensifies; Gadhafi Warns West On Interfering

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Wednesday, March 2, 2011, In : World News 
For lack of a better term, Libya is now embroiled in what can only be described as a civil war.  What began as a loud protest on February 15 has now grown into a bloody revolt as a majority of Libyans are calling for Moammar Gadhafi to step down.  The Libyan leader is now holed up under heavy guard in Tripoli and has ordered counterattacks on the rebels in several cities.  A convoy of SUVs with anti-aircraft guns, backed by several hundred Gadhafi troops roared into the city of Brega on Wedne...

Obi-Wan, Your 3D Message Will Soon Be Real

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Friday, November 5, 2010, In : Technology 
Remember how the people in Star Wars movies communicated with each other via 3D messaging?  We were amazed when we saw Princess Leia plead with Obi-Wan to "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi.  You're our only hope" in 1977.  Arizona scientist Nasser Peyghambarian is saying this is closer than you think.  In fact, he believes his team can make such a feat possible within ten years.  The prospect of 3D viewing without those bulky and clumsy glasses would not only be good for entertainment, it would have ot...

 Is Lady Gaga's train losing steam?  The nominations are all in for the 2010 American Music Awards, and leading the pack with five nominations each are Lady Antebellum and Eminem, followed by Justin Bieber with four.  Gaga has only been nominated for two awards this year---favorite female artist and artist of the year.  Last year, you'll recall, she went home empty-handed like the other falling female star, Taylor Swift, who herself was only nominated for one award this year.  The AMA's are v...

Funk band War and PepsiCo just can't be friends.  Some of the band's original members are suing Pepsi for over $10 million, saying that the soft drink company never negotiated with them to use their song "Why Can't We Be Friends" in its commercial for Pepsi MAX.  Naturally, Pepsi says the suit has no merit, stating that "Pepsi has a long history of partnering with iconic celebrities and musicians, and we value our relationship with the music and entertainment industry".  The statement doesn't...

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Wednesday, August 11, 2010, In : Icebergs 
A huge chunk of the Petersen Glacier has broken off in Greenland and is heading south, believed to be a victim of global warming.  This ice island, three times the size of Manhattan, may be heading for the Canadian shore of Newfoundland, where there are numerous oil rigs.  If such a massive piece of ice moves into that area, the danger of yet another massive oil spill is a possibility.  This is the same area where an iceberg sank the Titanic in 1912.  To further emphasize the size of this ice...
