The End of the World

Will the world end on the 21/12/12 coming Friday? Don’t worry, Nasa has released a video to calm you down.

“Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012,” NASA said in a statement on its webpage dedicated to questions about Dec. 21. “This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then — just as your calendar begins again on January 1 — another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.”

700-year-old China Mummy found!

November 22nd, 2012

700-year-old China Mummy found!

Road worker found a 700-year-old well preserved body which dates back to the Mind Dynasty which is between 1368 and 1644. There bones, ceramic, ancient writing and gadgets stuff found inside the coffin.

Director of the Museum of Taizhou, Wang Weiyin, told Xinhua that the mummy’s clothes are made mostly of silk, with a little cotton. He said usually silk and cotton are very hard to preserve and excavations found that this mummifying technology was used only at very high-profile funerals.

The first finding of the Ming Dynasty in Taizhou dates from May 1979 and led the opening of the museum. At that time the bodies were also found intact, but due to lack of experience of archaeologists only clothing, belts and clamps could be preserved.

CNBC: Softbank to pay $20 billion for a 70 percent stake in Sprint

CNBC: Softbank to pay $20 billion for a 70 percent stake in Sprint

Rumors of Sprint’s $12 billion acquisition by Softbank weren’t exaggerated, they were understated: according to CNBC, the Now Network will announce a $20 billion transaction with the Japanese network on Monday, granting Softbank a 70 percent stake in the company. According to people familiar with the matter, Softbank will purchase $8 billion in shares directly from Sprint, snagging an additional $12 billion in stock at $5.25 a share from other shareholders. The Japanese firm’s payout would net Sprint $3 billion, money CNBC supposes it might use to regain control of Clearwire. Softbank’s cash may also be used to bolster Sprint’s ongoing LTE rollout, which is poised to light up in over 20 markets in the coming months. The details are said to be officially announced tomorrow morning, but we’ve reached out to Sprint for a comment in case it wants to spill the beans early.

PETA: Pokémon Condones Animal Cruelty

PETA: Pokémon Condones Animal Cruelty

Now this just confuses many people, including us here in HQ. Pokémon, the game many in our generation grew up playing, is now being hunted by PETA, on the grounds that it condones animal cruelty.

We’re not sure why, since Pokémon, as the world knows it, is a virtual game involving fictional and imaginary animals. In addition, it has long ago been spawned as a cartoon series, which again many have grown up watching.

So why is PETA going after Pokemon now? Well, PETA is concentrating its anti-Pokemon campaign against the new Pokemon Black and White 2 game, released only two days ago for the Nintendo DS. According to PETA, “the amount of time that Pokemon spend stuffed in pokeballs is akin to how elephants are chained up in train carts, waiting to be let out to ‘perform’ in circuses.”

As a response, PETA launched its own parody video game on its website, called “Pokemon Black & Blue: Gotta Free ‘Em All”, where players battle against trainers to gain freedom, with a variety of “attacks” such as “group hugs” and “protests”. Further, it states that “if PETA existed in Unova, (their) motto would be: Pokemon are not ours to use or abuse.”

We’re not quite sure what to make of this. What do you think?
