NASA’s Voyager Missions Are Equipped With Maps That Could Lead Extraterrestrial Life to Earth

Newsweek Magazine, by Conor Gaffey Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Wed, 16 35 2017 09:35:10 GMT The 40th anniversary of the launch of two of NASA’s most remarkable spacecraft is fast approaching. The Voyager 2 mission launched into space on August 20, 1977, followed by Voyager 1 on September 5, 1977. And since their departure from Earth, both spacecraft have accumulated various accolades. Voyager 1 is the first spacecraft to enter interstellar space—the region outside the heliosphere, a giant electromagnetic bubble created by the sun—and is the most distant human-made object ever. And Voyager 2 is the only spacecraft to fly by all four planets of the outer solar system: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.

WH: Trump will make contested Obamacare payments in August

Washington Times, by Tom Howell Jr. Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Wed, 16 41 2017 09:41:48 GMT The Trump administration confirmed Wednesday it will make critical Obamacare payments to insurers for August — one day after congressional scorekeepers outlined the risks of cutting off the contested reimbursements over the long haul. The decision will allow insurers to breathe easy in the coming weeks but do little to calm their demands for a permanent commitment to the “cost’sharing reductions,” which reimburse plans for picking up low’income customers’s costs on the Affordable Care Act’s web’based exchanges. President Trump has suggested he would suspend the payments to speed Obamacare’s demise,

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Wed, 16 45 2017 09:45:05 GMT Oregon Gov. Kate Brown has signed a landmark bill to provide free abortions for all, including illegal immigrants, by requiring insurance companies to cover the procedures and putting taxpayers on the hook for the tab. Tuesday’s long-awaited signing of House Bill 3391, approved by the State Legislature July 5 with no Republican votes, triggered a torrent of criticism from conservatives along with praise from the pro-choice movement. “Thank Kate Brown for signing the nation’s most progressive reproductive health bill into law today!” NARAL Pro-Choice Oregon said in a statement.

Five Missing After Army Helicopter Goes Down off Hawaii

NBC News, by Courtney Kube & Corky Siemaszko Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- Wed, 16 52 2017 09:52:29 GMT Washington – A desperate search was underway Wednesday for five crew members who were aboard an Army helicopter that suddenly went down off of Hawaii. The downed UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter was on a training mission with another helicopter when it was reported missing at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, about two miles from Kaena Point, which is the westernmost tip of the island of Oahu, the U.S. Army said in a statement. A “debris field” was spotted some two hours later, but there was no sign of the crew members, the U.S. Coast Guard reported. The two helicopters are from the 25th Infantry Division’s Combat Aviation

Why Was This ´Crowd Hire´ Company Recruiting $25 An Hour ´Political Activists´ In Charlotte Last Week?

Zero Hedge, by Tyler Durden Posted By: lindamay- Wed, 16 58 2017 09:58:22 GMT Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was “blame on both sides” for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based “public relations firm specializing in innovative events” to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called “Crowds on Demand” and offered $25 per hour to “actors and photographers” to participate in events
