Will there be a war with North Korea? December 2017

In recent days there has been a serious ratcheting up of the rhetoric between the United States and North Korea, this coming amid large-scale air drills between the world superpower and their ally South Korea.

The habitual bellicose tirades have been voiced by the regime in Pyongyang, claiming that the US is "Begging for nuclear war". In addition a missile launch originated from the hermit state just a few days ago after a two month lull in activity, the US affirms that the object was an ICBM, suggesting that Kim Jong-Un is edging ever closer to nuclear strike capability on the United States.

President Donald Trump for his part, used his first speech at the UN in September to vow to "Totally destroy" North Korea, should it threaten the US, striking a notably harsher tone compared to his predecessors.

Another sign of increasing unease at the current climate is the fact that Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has urged the Pentagon to start evacuating US military families from South Korea.

A potentially groundbreaking discovery was made on the International Space Station (ISS) when previously absent bacteria appeared on the hull of the module.

Russian cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov affirmed that "Bacteria that had not been there during the launch of the ISS module were found on the swabs".

The next step will be to analyse the micro-organisms further on earth, in order to ascertain if these stunning assertions hold any credibility.

This statement came on the back of the heels of the news that coalition talks between Merkel`s center-right CDU party and the Freedom Democratic Party (FDP) had broken down.

“We are facing a situation which [we] did not face in the Federal Republic of Germany for almost 70 years", stated German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

Nibiru Planet X End of the World November 2017

Conspiracy theorists have gone into overdrive during the course of the last few days, insisting that the return of "nibiru" or "planet x" will occur on Sunday November 19.

The mythical celestial object is said to have an orbit of 3,600 years and its passing is associated with massive gravitational and atmospheric effects, leading many proponents of the theory to make doomsday predictions.

Despite these catastrophic predictions becoming ever more ubiquitous in recent years, hitherto the earth has avoided calamity and most experts in the astronomical field vehemently deny the existence of Nibiru, including Nasa.

The concept of Nibiru can be traced back to Babylonian times with various different texts making reference to it and it is on this basis that modern day proponents of the theory draw their justification.
