If you look up the description of a black hole you while find -- "a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape".  It's a massive void of nothing at the far reaches of outer space that holds immense energy.  What if humankind could harvest that energy and use it to power our eve...

As with any war, there are always casualties with the effects of war can be long lasting even if they don't seem readily apparent.   On September 2, 1945, the Second World War (a.k.a World War II) ended.  German forces were defeated and Allied troops were sent in to keep the peace and help rebuild.  The British ended up in the ha...

Imagine all the people… had no idea who The Beatles – John, Paul, George, and Ringo- were. What if they never existed? Imagine if you were the only person on Earth who remembered them and their incredible catalog of music.   What if you could publish Hey, Jude, Yesterday, Penny Lane, etc. under your own name?  You would certa...

There are numerous late night talks shows out there and each one vies for viewers in the "ratings" wars.  We see an engaging and enthusiastic host talking to the audience, home viewers and guests all in an effort to try to win our loyalty.  However, we usually don't know what goes on behind the scenes and how hard a team of writ...

The story of Billy the Kid is legendary.  He was notorious for gambling cattle rustling and murder.  He is the subject of numerous books and movies - some are pretty factual while others are mostly fictitious with a few details thrown in for accuracy.  The latest in a long line of films called The Kid falls into the latter category.&...

"You've got a friend in me"… since 1995 those words have been synonymous with the Disney animated movie Toy Story and Woody (Tom Hanks; Cast Away) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen; Home Improvement).  Over the next fifteen years, we were treated to two more films in the franchise that followed the adventures of Andy's toys as the...
