Written by Denis McGrath

With global warming, the Arctic has become navigable, and the race to claim it heats up. As a four-nation conference on the issue unfolds in Toronto, a faraway collision under the polar ice turns a group of Canadian sailors into bargaining chips. Kessler and ICS must find a way to broker a deal that saves the sailors without selling out Canada's future in the Arctic -- even if that means betraying personal bonds to U.S. Agent Carver, and British operative Charlotte Bates.

Although it isn’t part of Mercedes‘ New York Auto Show exhibit, the 2010 S-Class marks a modest overhaul to the German automaker’s flagship luxury sedan. In addition to interior and exterior refinements, the new S550 and S600 come with a slew of new and improved high-tech systems, including safety and convenience features.
The S550 continues to be powered by a 382 horsepower V8 with optional 4MATIC all-wheel-drive.
One of the most noticeable changes across the lineup is the addition of daytime LED running lights fitted to the outer edges of the bi-xenon lamp units. The rear end is also accented with a total of 52 distinctively arranged LEDs in the two taillights. Gone are the body-colored strips through the taillamps.
Mercedes-Benz also makes more use of light as a styling element in the interior via the standard ambient lighting, now with a choice between three lighting moods: solar (amber), neutral (white) and polar (ice-blue).
Another noticeable change at the front of the car is a more pronounced arrow-shaped grille, plus a new front bumper with a light-catching contour and a chrome strip below the cooling air intakes. Exhaust tailpipes of all S-Class variants are now visibly integrated into the rear bumper. Mercedes-Benz says its engineers have also implemented specific aerodynamic measures to reduce wind noise.
Camera and radar-based driver assistance systems include Adaptive Highbeam Assist, Lane Keeping Assist and the Pre-Safe brake system linked to the proximity regulating radar, which intervenes autonomously before an impending rear-end collision. Other highlights include the Attention Assist driver drowsiness monitor and Active Body Control with automatic crosswind stabilization.
Engineers also managed to improve the night-vision system with the introduction of Night View Assist PLUS, which is equipped a special pedestrian detection function. The Pre-Safe braking system has also been improved to reduce injuries in unavoidable crashes. Mercedes says the car can apply maximum braking pressure automatically around 0.6 seconds before what is recognized as an unavoidable accident. The system therefore acts as something like an “electronic crumple zone,” Mercedes contends.
The multifunction steering wheel of the S-Class has been modified for improved aesthetics and feel. The rim and airbag module are now lined with soft premium leather as standard. The new, flatter airbag module also lends a sporty touch to the multifunction steering wheel.

Part 5 – http://www.timeline2012.org This video includes: Ivan/Evon Stein discussing the concept of catastrophic events in Earth’s past; how these findings dispel many common beliefs about glaciers, mountain ranges, and erratics; how there is proof that virtually all life has been eradicated from Earth in our recent past; how global warming relates to the release of fossil fuels; and how the polar ice is melting whether you believe in global warming or not. This video reviews the geological and archeological findings of a little known book on Earth changes. Ivan reveals how erratics can not be moved by glaciers as commonly believed and how many mountain ranges have moved up and down thousands of feet in a single event in Earth’s recent past.
The next generation of heroes storm into action when
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra comes to DVD and Blu-ray on December 7 2009

Christmas sucks for parents. They have to spend all this money getting gifts for their spoiled little kids to the point where they can’t afford to get anything for themselves but another credit card, and then once their kids get their greedy little hands on the nicely wrapped presents, they tear them open, shout for joy, and break them in 5 minutes. Then to make things worse, these poor, hard-working unappreciated parents are forced to tell their kids that the presents didn’t come from them, bit that a mythical elf in a red bathrobe gave them the presents, thus stealing all the credit and destroying any affection those presents could have bought from the experience. Lamest of lame. What gives Santa the right to steal all the credit? Some fat guy who probably has diabetes and uses slave labor and endangered species to do his work on one of the melting polar ice caps thinks it’s okay to steal the credit from us parents? Well, no more, I say. Time to throw the ABC Holiday Special meaning of Christmas out the window and do something for yourself. Plain and simple.

The art of Movado is the art of design. Since its founding in 1881 by 19-year old entrepreneur Achille Ditesheim in the village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, Movado has achieved a legacy of design innovation, earning more than 100 patents and 200 international awards for artistry and innovation in watch design and time technology.
Movado, meaning "always in motion," is the hallmark of some of the most famous timepieces ever created. Defined by a single dot at 12 representing the sun at high noon, the Museum Watch dial is regarded as an icon of Modernism. It was designed by Bauhaus-influenced artist Nathan George Horwitt in 1947. When Horwitt’s dial was selected for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1960, it was the first watch dial ever awarded this distinction. The name "Museum Watch" derives from this recognition.
Excellence in design. A dedication to Swiss craftsmanship. The quest for technological innovation. The Movado philosophy remains as valid as it was in 1881. Swiss made and water resistant, all Movado watches are distinguished by a legacy of design innovation and dedication to the future of time. Discover the complete collection today.
In the not-so-far future the polar ice caps have melted and the resulting raise of the ocean waters has drowned all the coastal cities of the world. Withdrawn to the interior of the continents, the human race keeps advancing, reaching to the point of creating realistic robots (called mechas) to serve him. One of the mecha-producing companies builds David, an artificial kid which is the first to have real feelings, especially a never-ending love for his "mother", Monica. Monica is the woman who adopted him as a substitute for her real son, who remains in cryo-stasis, stricken by an incurable disease. David is living happily with Monica and her husband, but when their real son returns home after a cure is discovered, his life changes dramatically.

Is it global warming on steroids? A new NASA study finds both the Arctic and Antarctic ice caps are melting at a much faster rate than previously believed. The 18-year study discovered the ice sheets are now the number one contributor to rising sea levels.
A researcher from the University of Colorado tells Discovery News - the Arctic has always been the canary in the coal mine - and now it might be too late.
“As the effects of greenhouse warming take hold, it’s the Arctic where we’re going to see it first, it’s the Arctic where those changes are going to be most pronounced. It’s exactly what we see. It’s a case of we hate to say we told you so, but we did, and it’s time to take action.”
The study says the melting ice sheets would add 5.9 inches to the sea level. Along with mountain ice melting and other factors - the sea level will actually rise 12.6 inches. A writer for Ars Technica says - this is very bad news for lowland areas.
“Though one foot may not sound like much, a FEMA study estimated storm surges under such a scenario would cause about 40 to 60 percent more damage than at present. That seems like small potatoes compared to the kinds of problems … many Pacific islands will likely face in just 40 years.”
And humans aren’t the only ones effected. Recently, a polar bear spent nine days swimming across the Beaufort Sea - her cub died before they were able to find ice to land on.
“There underlies a real problem here in general: polar bears who depend on this ice will also be displaced from their home at a faster rate than expected... What animals will be displaced in the polar ice regions of the world as the melting trends continue?” (Gather)
Eric Rignot - who lead the study - says global warming is the sole cause for the melting in Greenland, but he’s not so sure about Antarctica.
"In Antarctica, the story is a little more complex... We think the change is driven by the ocean, but we're not exactly sure what the ocean is doing." (OC Register)
U.N. reports predict the world will have 50 million environmental refugees by 2020 - less than 10 years from now - because of climate change.
