Planet In Turmoil: Over 1,400 Earthquakes Have Rattled Alaska Over The Past 3 Days

The shaking in Alaska still hasn’t stopped, and that has many residents wondering if the worst is still yet to come.  Friday’s magnitude 7.0 earthquake could be felt 400 miles away from Anchorage, and it was the most destructive quake that the city has experienced since 1964.  But those living in the region can’t really shift into recovery mode yet because the ground continues to shake.  In fact, it is being reported that there have been more than 1,400 aftershocks that have been recorded so far… (Read More...)

U.S. Life Expectancy Is Falling – And The 2 Biggest Reasons Why Will Absolutely Stun You…

Life expectancy in the United States has been falling in recent years, and we haven’t seen a trend like this since the days of World War I.  When I was growing up, life expectancy was continually rising, and it was generally believed that it would keep rising for many decades to come.  But that hasn’t happened.  Instead, average life expectancy started to stall and now it has been declining.  You might assume that this is because rates of cancer, heart disease and diabetes are going up, but the numbers are telling a different story.  In fact, brand new numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are telling us that life expectancy is going down in the United States because of a dramatic increase in drug overdoses and suicides(Read More...)

The Coldest And Snowiest November Ever? Here Is Why America’s Freakish Weather Is Only Going To Get Worse…

Can you remember a November as cold and snowy as this one has been?  I certainly cannot.  Over the course of this month, the United States has been hit by freakishly cold and snowy weather, and another major winter storm is barreling through the center of the country right now.  Of course there are moments of strange weather every year, but what we have been witnessing over the past month has definitely been extremely unusual.  Several weeks ago, I explained to my readers that experts were warning that this was coming, but nobody could have expected a wind chill of -75 degrees in New Hampshire on Thanksgiving Day.  And it isn’t just one portion of the country that has gotten hammered.  According to the Weather Channel, 74 different U.S. cities are at the highest level on the Accumulated Winter Season Severity Index for the month of November… (Read More...)

“Between 6,000 and 10,000 churches in the U.S. are dying each year” – and that means that over 100 will die this week

America is littered with thousands upon thousands of church buildings that aren’t being used anymore.  As you will see below, between 6,000 and 10,000 churches are dying in the United States every single year, and that means that more than 100 will die this week alone.  And of course thousands of others are on life support.  All over the country this weekend, small handfuls of people will gather in huge buildings which once boasted very large congregations.  At one time, America was widely considered to be “a Christian nation”, but that really isn’t true anymore.  As an excellent article in The Atlantic has noted, even though most Americans still consider themselves to be “Christian”, the numbers are telling us a very different story… (Read More...)

8 Shocking Demographic Trends Which Will Greatly Shape America’s Future

We are witnessing a fundamental transformation of America.  Some welcome the changes that are happening, while others are greatly resisting them.  But one thing is very clear – the United States is a very different place than it was 40 or 50 years ago.  Our population is aging, lifestyle patterns are dramatically shifting, and young adults view the world very differently than Baby Boomers do.  The changes that we are watching happen are going to take our society in new directions, and already the pace of change is accelerating at a pace that is absolutely breathtaking.  The following are 8 shocking demographic trends which will greatly shape America’s future… (Read More...)

Watch What Happens When A Baby That Is Addicted To A Cellphone Has It Taken Away

You have got to watch this video!  I have to admit that I was mesmerized when I first starting watching it.  This baby appears to be less than a year old, and yet it already throws a massive temper tantrum every time a cellphone is taken away.  But as you will see in the video, all the mother has to do to stop the tantrum is to give the cellphone back to the baby.  If you need a good laugh, this video is perfect for you, but I think that it also contains a much deeper message.  You see, the truth is that our society is just like that little baby.  We have become deeply, deeply addicted to the digital world that we have created, and when we are forced to disconnect from that world most of us don’t respond very well.

Authorities Are Using A “Mysterious New Tool” That Can Unlock Virtually Any Cellphone

Your cellphone is a gold mine of information about where you have been, who you have been talking to, and what you have been doing online.  And now a “mysterious new tool” is enabling law enforcement authorities all over the nation to get access to that information on virtually any phone.  So if you end up going to prison someday, it could be the evidence that is pulled out of your cellphone that ultimately puts you away.  Of course most Americans never even consider that their own cellphones could be systematically gathering evidence against them.  For most of us, cellphones are simply extremely convenient tools that allow us to communicate effectively with the rest of the world.  But if the authorities decide to investigate you, your cellphone is going to be one of the first things that they want, and what they find on there could put you behind bars for a very, very long time.
