7 Electric Car Concepts That Reveal the Future of Driving

In the two years since the world’s biggest automakers last gathered in Frankfurt for the biannual International Motor Show, the future of their industry has shifted dramatically. The opening of the 2015 festivities came just as the world learned Volkswagen had sold millions of diesel-powered cars that used illegal software to cheat emissions standards. Two years on, General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, Renault, and Nissan have faced accusations of running similar schemes. Consumers are hardly flocking to electric cars in response—EVs account for less than one percent of US sales—but the tarnishing of so-called “clean diesel” and the goals set by …

The snow leopard is no longer ‘endangered’

The snow leopard’s conservation status has improved in recent years. Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 Son Truong The species, which has long teetered on the edge of extinction, is finally starting to make a comeback. The iconic cats, which are native to the remote mountain regions of Central and Southern Asia, have often been used to promote conservation efforts and to raise awareness for threatened species. Now though, after being classed as “endangered” for 45 years, the snow leopard has finally managed to recover enough to have its conservation status improved to “vulnerable”. While these elusive cats are still very …

Russians Knew About the Existence Of Aliens in 1969 • Latest UFO sightings

The theory that Russia has known about extraterrestrial civilizations for many years probably sounds familiar. It could be the most legendary story involving a space UFO crash and the subsequent autopsy of its ET crew. Those incidents reportedly took place in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

The Soviet UFO-autopsy story is not new, but the Russian event is all of a sudden getting …

Are Teenage Girls More Able to See Shadow People?

Over the years, I have worked with numerous teenagers.  I am a therapist, so most of the teens I see are struggling with some massive issue in their life.  They are unhappy with their family, they have been abused, or they have mental illnesses.  Many issues have brought teenagers to my sofa and I love working with teenagers.  They are open and willing to try new things.  They haven’t been so scared that they can’t change.  Over the last several months, I have become profoundly aware of a trend I have seen in a couple dozen of the teenage girls …

On its inner part, there’s a sketch of the tomb owner which was later identified as Senenmut or Senemut.

I did this post on The Kildare Mansion a couple of years ago. I have updated to include some of the more recent controversies surrounding this magnificent, haunted mansion. The Kildare Mansion was first famous for it’s ghosts.  It was built in 1886 by a wealthy Irishman named O’Shaughnessy.   He built the castle as a reminder of his homeland, Ireland.   He put a fortune into making it the most extravagant house in the area and he did a good job of it.  This giant of a house overshadows everything around it. It has over 40 rooms and is over 17,000 square feet including …

Where Horror Gets the Red Carpet Treatment

It’s a far cry from 20 years ago, when Mr. Geddes, a voluble fellow in ever-present red pants, switched from Midnight Madness fan to employee.

Mr. Geddes’s tenure here figures into any number of origin stories. There’s the time he fished out a screener of Eli Roth’s “Cabin Fever” from the festival’s rejection pile. And the time he ignored the response that “Saw” received at the industry-heavy Sundance Film Festival and put it in front of …
