Nearly two weeks after introducing his proposal to overhaul the set-top box market, and nearly two weeks after being on the receiving end of cable companies’ criticism, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler took to Variety's "PopPolitics" SiriusXM radio show to defend his recent proposal. Cable companies argue Wheeler's proposal, which aims to create an open standard for set-top boxes, harms innovation. They already innovate by creating apps for third-party boxes. Wheeler doesn't buy that argument, though. "You are telling me that a locked down, closed system will have more impetus to be innovative, than a competitive, open system," he said. "I think that history shows that it is exactly the opposite of what happens in reality."

(Save yourself the trouble and cut the cord...)

"I've always liked the idea that Jupiter has acted like a protector to its little brother, Earth.

That it has used its massive gravitational pull to divert asteroids and comets from a collision course with Earth.

Maybe Jupiter even felt bad when one got through, and doomed the dinosaurs to extinction. But a new study has cast this idea into doubt.

The idea of Jupiter as a protector has been around for a while.

The images of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 breaking apart and crashing into Jupiter in 1994 reinforced the idea.

But according to Kevin Grazier, at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), rather than acting solely as a shield, re-directing comets and other objects away from the inner solar system, Jupiter may have actually directed planetesimals into the inner solar system."
Far from being a deflector shield that protected Earth from comets, a new study shows that Jupiter may have directed planetesimals, with their payload of life-friendly chemicals, into Earth itself.

The eastern Roman Empire was brought to its knees after a century of cold weather led to famine and plague across the ancient world, according to new research.

Dubbed Late Antique Little Ice Age, this previously unknown period of climate change was revealed in the patterns of tree rings across Asia and the Alps.

Within five years of the onset of this ice age, volcanic eruptions, followed by famine and plague, killed millions of people, caused political upheaval and may have brought down the Roman Empire.

Even the Southeast will be colder than average, with temperatures struggling to make it much above 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or 0 degrees Celsius, in parts of the Carolinas, Tennessee and Georgia during the weekend. 

The cold snap has ties to events high above the North Pole, where a sudden stratospheric warming event that has been unfolding for more than a week now is working to periodically dislodge portions of the tropospheric polar vortex and fling them southward.


A severe cold snap is set to overtake the eastern U.S. for Valentine's Day weekend.

Beast Mode? No. It's more like Thrift Mode!


Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch has made $49.7 million in nine NFL seasons--and saved all of it.

In a recent segment for The Ian & Puck Show on 950 AM KJR in Seattle, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network was discussing recent rumblings that Lynch might retire and dropped an interesting tidbit about Lynch's thriftiness.

"Marshawn Lynch has a lot of money," Rapoport said. "He hasn't spent a dime of his actual playing money ... ever." Lynch is estimated to earn about $5 million per year through endorsement deals with Nike, Pepsi, Skittles, Progressive, and Activision, according to Forbes.


Lynch reportedly has been living the past nine years off endorsements and other business ventures.

NASA published a 360-degree image on the Curiosity rover's official Facebook page last week that was meant to let viewers "explore Mars" with their smartphones. It was a great idea, and it teases at how, someday relatively soon, we'll be able to explore other planets virtually well before any of our descendants get a chance to do it in person.

Beautiful. I've always wanted to go into space. In the 1950's I put my name on a list to be on the first passenger ship to the moon. I guess "virtually" is the only way I'll get there now.
