Chris Pratt visits children's hospital as Star-Lord

If there was a competition for World’s Best Dude, well, there wouldn’t BE any competition because the winner would clearly be Chris Pratt.
 
 
The affable actor continues his summer of sincere, joyful moments with a visit to the patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles in full Star-Lord regalia.
 
According to E! Online:
 
The actor worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday
 
While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord.
 
The 35-year-old actor spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.
 
Dammit, Pratt. We said we weren’t going to cry today.
 
And, you should know, this was Pratt’s plan from the beginning.
 
Back when he was doing press for Guardians of the Galaxy, the actor explained why he stole the jacket and other parts of the wardrobe:
 
"I would love to go if it was a big enough movie to where it would mean something to a kid who was sick, in a hospital, for Peter Quill or Star-Lord to come visit them, I would do that. I think that’s awesome, man. That would be — that would give me real meaning for this movie, you know? Right now it means “high profile,” “cool jobs coming up,” “big press tour” and all the excitement of it all, but none of that really means anything. The coolest thing would be that my son can one day see this and that maybe I could go affect some kids in a positive way and be a good role model for them."
 
We think you’ll be a great role model for many, Mr. Pratt.

The suspects in the terror attack on a newspaper's Paris office were located again Friday morning having stolen a car near a highway northeast of the French capital and then reportedly holed up on an industrial estate, possibly with one or more hostages.
 
There was gunfire and heavy police activity around the town of Dammartin-en-Goële, about 25 miles northeast of Paris along the N2 highway, which falls within the corridor that became the focus of the manhunt on Thursday.

Guess What Happened The Last Time The Price Of Oil Crashed Like This?

The Economic Collapse 30 November 2014

There has only been one other time in history when the price of oil has crashed by more than 40 dollars in less than 6 months. The last time this happened was during the second half of 2008, and the beginning of that oil price crash preceded the great financial collapse that happened later that year by several months. Well, now it is happening again, but this time the stakes are even higher. When the price of oil falls dramatically, that is a sign that economic activity is slowing down. It can also have a tremendously destabilizing affect on financial markets. As you will read about below, energy companies now account for approximately 20 percent of the junk bond market. And a junk bond implosion is usually a signal that a major stock market crash is on the way. So if you are looking for a "canary in the coal mine", keep your eye on the performance of energy junk bonds. If they begin to collapse, that is a sign that all hell is about to break loose on Wall Street.

It would be difficult to overstate the importance of the shale oil boom to the U.S. economy. Thanks to this boom, the United States has become the largest oil producer on the entire planet.

Yes, the U.S. now actually produces more oil than either Saudi Arabia or Russia. This "revolution" has resulted in the creation of millions of jobs since the last recession, and it has been one of the key factors that has kept the percentage of Americans that are employed fairly stable.

Unfortunately, the shale oil boom is coming to an abrupt end. As a recent Vox article discussed, OPEC has essentially declared a price war on U.S. shale oil producers...

For all intents and purposes, OPEC is now engaged in a "price war" with the United States. What that means is that it's very cheap to pump oil out of places like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. But it's more expensive to extract oil from shale formations in places like Texas and North Dakota. So as the price of oil keeps falling, some US producers may become unprofitable and go out of business. The result? Oil prices will stabilize and OPEC maintains its market share.

Terror Plot Uncovered: al Qaeda Planning Large Scale Terrorist Attack Using Commercial Airplanes around Christmas
December 1, 2014 By Jennifer Burke
 
It was just before Christmas in 2001, on December 22 to be exact, that Richard Colvin Reid, a British National who had converted to Islam while in prison, attempted to detonate a bomb in his shoe while aboard a plane headed from Paris to Miami. Colvin had become ‘radicalized’ and even trained with al Qaeda. Now, just over 3 weeks away from Christmas, there are threats once again that al Qaeda is planning another large scale, coordinated terrorist attack using airplanes. Their targets this time are major European cities, including London.

GOVERNMENT ARRESTING PEOPLE FOR ANTI-OBAMA FACEBOOK POSTS!
This article will make you angry. The US Government is actively seeking those who criticize government, specifically Barack Obama, and arresting them without charging them. They are remanded to mental health institutions where they are given “training” on how to view the world.
 
Remind you of a little book that George Orwell wrote?
It gets worse.
Most of the victims of the government’s kidnapping scheme are veterans.

Vermont lawmakers question credibility of new health plan that Gruber helped design

As Shumlin gets ready to present a health-care financing plan to the Legislature in January, key lawmakers who will decide its fate are saying Gruber's explosive video confessions severely damage the proposal.
