The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved the minute hand of the Doomsday Clock two minutes closer to midnight. It is now 5 minutes to midnight. In a statement supporting the decision to move the hand of the Doomsday Clock, the BAS Board focused on two major sources of catastrophe: the perils of 27,000 nuclear weapons, 2000 of them ready to launch within minutes; and the destruction of human habitats from climate change.

In articles by 14 leading scientists and security experts writing in the January-February issue of theBulletin of the Atomic Scientists the potential for catastrophic damage from human-made technologies is explored further. Created in 1947, the Doomsday Clock has been adjusted only 17 times prior to today, most recently in February 2002 after the events of 9/11.

For those of you who have been in Ukraine, or might want to go, this website will be of interest.

While many of us are aware of the elaborate splendor of the Moscow underground, it’s easy to overlook the phenomenon of the common roadside bus stop as an example of soviet art and design letting loose and becoming a little weird and crazy.

I hope you enjoy these links. Let them be a little rest from your hectic day.

God Bless and have a good week!
