This Will Kill The Time Till Walking Dead Returns In October

July 13th,  The Straincreated by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan begins on FX. It is the first of trilogy of books that were well loved by horror fans. A plane lands at  JFK with the lights off and doors sealed. Epidemiologist Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his team are sent to investigate. On board they find two hundred corpses and four survivors. The situation deteriorates when the bodies begin disappearing from morgues. Goodweather and a small group of helpers find themselves battling to protect not only their own loved ones, but the entire city, from an ancient threat to humanity. We are looking at lots of  vampires (that don't glow) and the battle to save humanity. It should be worth a look just because Guillermo del Toro is a unique talent behind the camera. Read more...

Friday The 13th Could Be A Problem For Your Cell Phone

The sun has had three major solar flares on its surface in the past two days that have affected communications on Earth and could send a shockwave through Earth this Friday, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The “solar events” caused brief blackouts in high frequency communications when they struck, twice on Tuesday morning and once this morning, all between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. EDT. Solar flares are bursts of radiation on the sun’s surface. The disturbance to Earth’s atmosphere can disrupt GPS and communications signals, according to NASA. One of the flares created a “coronal mass ejection” that actually could come into contact with Earth on Friday, according to NOAA. The ejection is essentially a huge cloud of plasma that could hit the Earth and cause a shock wave, affecting communications systems. If an ejection were to hit Earth on Friday, scientists expect it would  cause a  geo-magnetic storm. Read more...

No! I Have To Go NOW!

Trying to avoid the consequences of an upset stomach while on vacation? There’s now an app for that. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention wants to help tourists avoid stomach ailments like diarrhea, so it created a smartphone app called Can I Eat This? If  you’re traveling in an exotic location and aren’t sure about the beverage you’re about to consume. You would answer a few simple questions about which country you’re visiting, what you just purchased, where you bought it and what kind of packaging it’s in. The app would then tell you whether it’s safe to drink or whether you should pour it out. If there’s ice in the beverage, the app will say “You probably shouldn’t drink it.” Ice is usually made from local tap water, which can contain harmful bacteria. If it’s a juice that comes in a sealed container, the app says “It’s probably OK to drink.” “With Can I Eat This?, you can be more confident that your food and drink choices won’t make you spend your international trip in the bathroom,” the CDC said.About 10 million people contract diarrhea while traveling abroad.

Be Careful Wearing Your Gorilla Suit

Frantic zoo keepers on the Spanish island Tenerife rushed to call an ambulance after a vet shot a tranquillizer dart at a man dressed as a gorilla. Police on the Spanish island received a call from a panicked member of the public, who said that a gorilla had escaped from its pen in Loro Park zoo, and was seen running around the theme park.A vet was called, and on spotting the creature fired a tranquillizer dart at its leg with enough sedative to fell a 300 pound  beast.But to his horror, the vet - who had only been in the job for two months - realised that the creature was in fact an employee of the zoo, dressed in a gorilla suit, who was staging a mock escape to practise their emergency routines.He was said to be in a serious condition, having suffered an allergic reaction to the tranquilliser, but was expected to make a full recovery.
