The currently untreatable Zika virus, which causes babies to be born with underdeveloped brains, is likely to spread all across the American continents, the World Health Organization has warned.
BBC News reported that the infection has spread through 21 countries in the Caribbean, North and South America, and has been linked to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains.
The virus is native to Africa, but is believed to have spread in Brazil sometime in May 2015. It is transmitted by the Aedes mosquitoes, which are found in all countries in the region, except for Chile and Canada. more >>
WASHINGTON — Abortion doctors experience a "burden of guilt" for the deaths of babies they are responsible for killing, David Daleiden, the man behind the two and-a-half year undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood, explained Thursday.
Daleiden, a 27-year-old pro-life activist who founded the Center for Medical Progress and headed the undercover investigation into Planned Parenthood's aborted baby parts compensation practices, sat down with Southern Baptist Convention ethicist Russell Moore and Focus on the Family's Jim Daly at the 2016 Evangelicals for Life conference to discuss his personal experiences from the investigation.
As the findings of the CMP investigation were released in a series of YouTube videos last year, Daleiden witnessed first-hand the inhumane and casual way that doctors and executives of the nation's largest abortion provider referred to and treated human fetuses and how they discussed ways that the company and its partners skirt around federal laws and restrictions. more >>

Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking believes humans might destroy the planet within the next thousand to 10,000 years, and suggests the only way for people to survive is to colonize other planets.
"Although the chance of a disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time, and becomes a near certainty in the next thousand or 10,000 years," Hawking said, according to BBC News.
"By that time we should have spread out into space, and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race," he added. more >>

Some may call it an example of the machines taking over. Other may dub it the inevitable wave of the future. We just think it's kind of cool.
Earlier this month a fellow who dotes the appellation "J majerus" on YouTube posted a brief look at a Tesla model S 7.1.
