Science that changes religions. With no biasness!

Any time a writer sees the phrase “everything we thought we knew about X is also incorrect” , it sets off bullshit alarms. Having X be some major conclusion of physics makes the alarms even louder. Saying both religions and textbooks will need revising, well…

For the first time in history, “The Principle” (documentary) finds scientific evidence that The Copernican Principle is incorrect and suggests that everything we thought we knew about the universe is also incorrect. The film has already been a huge topic of a controversy in Universities around the globe, though this is the first time any formal press has been released.

It is important to note that our film conveys no biasness at all.  We simply reveal groundbreaking research.

Could 500 Years of Science Be Wrong!?

The Most Heated Debate of The Century Enters Theatres

Considered to be the most controversial film of the year, Stellar Motion Pictures announces the theatrical release of “The Principle”.  For the first time ever, this film reveals scientific evidence that proves the five-hundred-year-old “Copernican Principle” is wrong. 

If The Copernican Principle is wrong then everything we think we know about the Universe is also disturbingly wrong.  What this means is, every religion, science textbook, and philosophical viewpoint will be forced to reposition their belief system to admit that the Earth is in fact: The Center of The Universe.

PROVEN BY SCIENCE: how to get a drink

It’s pretty bad when a science uses sloppy language like “scientifically proven to help get you a drink.” But worse that the company that hosts the blog is attempting to get more serious blogs to give the sloppiness more prominence.

There you are—waiting at the bar, dying for a drink, but you can’t seem to catch the bartender’s attention. What’s your next move? Wait patiently? (Yeah, right.) Panic? Forget the drink and just pretend to your date that you’re way drunker than you actually are?

Well, lucky for you, Discover magazine’s Seriously Science? blog reports today on a technique that is scientifically proven to help you get a drink. All you do is this: Yell “BEER ME! NOW!” as loudly as you can while pointing your finger at the bartender.

No, just kidding. Don’t do that. (Though it might actually work in some cases.)

But seriously, here’s what you do:
Step 1) Position yourself directly at the bar counter.
Step 2) Look at a staff member.
Step 3) Receive your drink and enjoy!

For more info on the study, you can read the Discover blog post.

I hope you consider sharing this news item.

Mildly edited to remove a few links to a blog post in question.

Cancer? You need “natural health”

The noted science writer who received this expressed intense frustration that there’s a TV show that will attempt to convince people that the best response to breast cancer or near-death experiences is “natural health.” Especially since that seems to involve little more than cooking and martial arts.

AOL ON ORIGINALS DEBUTS NEW ORIGINAL SERIES “THE RESTART PROJECT” FROM

CELEBRITY DUO GWYNETH PALTROW AND TRACY ANDERSON

Los Angeles, Calif. (December 16, 2013) – Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson’s new series THE RESTART PROJECT premieres today on AOL On Originals.  The 10- episode documentary series is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and presented by Kaplan University.

The series follows Academy Award winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and fitness expert Tracy Anderson as they spend time with women who’ve overcome hardship, injury, and setbacks to triumph in the face of adversity. Each episode one woman will share her inspiring story firsthand, whether fighting back from a career-ending injury or transforming their lives and bodies through diet and exercise.

The brave women found in the series have suffered through such obstacles as losing a child, a breast cancer diagnosis, surviving a near-death experience and more but all have found peace and resolution through natural healing such as martial arts, competitive running and healthy cooking.

For a small fee, we’ll give you a get-out-of-jail free card

Normally, us reporter types get PR from companies trying to use us to help make themselves some money. Almost always, it’s going to be other people’s money. In this case, a noted editor and author got one from someone who wanted her money. In return, she’d get a card that would officially confirm she was, in fact, a journalist.

WireNews+Co offers an International Press Card/Pass to registered journalists. Our press card is both recognised and accepted by literally thousands of International organisations. Our members have been able to prevent arrest and otherwise establish their credentials as a journalist simply by presenting the WireNews+Co press card.

The programme makes available a plastic laminated membership and press card/pass, with the journalist’s photo and relevant details on the face and their signature on the reverse.

International Press Cards/Passes, issued on payment of the annual fee, are available to all journalists, including reporters, editors, photo-journalists and online publishers and/or bloggers who have registered with WireNews+Co.

 

Come to Coventry, see the bouncy castle

For reasons that are beyond comprehension, this was addressed by name to someone who cannot recall ever having covered bouncy castles even once during their career. 

I am very pleased to confirm our attendance at the Leisure Supplies Show on the 4th and 5th of March 2014 at Sports Connexion Coventry. We really feel this is a show not to be missed. Indoor and Outdoor Leisure Ltd will be having our biggest ever show space with products on display from all three of our websites

Natural products that say danger

A long list of natural products with properties that sound so miraculous that it’s a wonder that the organisms that produce them ever die. Obviously, it was sent to a science writer who is quite naturally skeptical of these sorts of hyped claims.

Dear Sir /Madam:

FEEL BETTER NOW! NATURALLY

Revolutionary Natural Supplement to support your Immune System!

Laboratory tests have shown that squid ink is an Angiogenesis inhibitor

Research is finding that Squid Ink can be the most potent ingredient in helping to better a weak immune system.  New studies show Black squid ink is one of the most powerful antioxidants known, containing essential minerals like Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Calcium, Magnesium, & Selenium and also rich in protein. Squid ink is also an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, B12, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Folic acid and fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. All these vitamins are vital for maintaining, boosting, & promoting a healthy immune system.
 
Black Squid Ink has more antioxidants than Blueberries, but with less sugar and more fiber & vitamin E. Based on current information, present lab research shows the potential protective effect of squid ink, is remarkable and researchers are also working on developing a clinical application.

The pitch continues at length about a number of other natural products that sound just as miraculous as squid ink before wrapping up with:

Yours in Health,

Calamari Ink
