'Fight For Space' Documentary Closes In On Fundraising Goal With Just Two Days To Go

‘Fight For Space’ producers are approaching their fundraising goal to complete the film and release it this year. The film examines the state of America’s space program, its history and the outlook for the future. The documentary offers viewpoints from astronauts, scientists, politicians, former NASA officials, members of the private space industry and other members of the space community.

“Since the Apollo program, NASA’s budget has been shrinking along with it’s ability to complete ambitious goals,” a press release for the film said. “Fight for Space looks at why and how the space program came adrift, and will examine future plans from NASA and commercial entities.”

Obama announces $561 billion Pentagon budget, advocates say real budget more like $1 trillion

The White House will be seeking $561 billion from Congress to run the Pentagon in 2016 – its largest budget ever. However, a source told RT that the budget is actually closer to $1 trillion, and has been for several administrations.

“We continued to see record spending even though we’ve seen the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wound down,” according to Stephen Miles, advocacy director, The Center for International Policy. “For the $523 billion dollars you have to tack on another $51 billion dollars to include the money we are continuing to spend in Afghanistan and some of the money we are spending in Iraq and Syria.”

Commander of the Week -- Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient

We are now in week three. The only color missing to the party to now had been red, and this week I sure did give you a lot of red, right?

(It’s funny because I showed a bunch of artifacts.)

Card: Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient
2RR — Legendary Creature - Ogre Spirit
"Whenever you activate an ability of an artifact, if it isn’t a mana ability, you my pay R. If you do, copy that ability. You may choose new targets for the copy.

[ 4 / 3 ]”

Hopefully you can imagine some cards that this guy would work well with like Illusionist’s Bracers or Oblivion Stone. Not that I say those for a reason or anything…

Our buddy Kurkesh here has an “oops I win” flair to his flavor and I just had to imagine how I would abuse that. I would abuse his triggered ability with Strionic Resonator, then paying once to get to copy an activation of an artifact twice, which I’d most likely use with Planar Portal because tutoring out your deck is really strong. Or if you want to value-out the opponent, there’s always the Hoard-Smelter Dragon beats plan or  Bosh, Iron Golem.

My ideal list for Kurkesh would include metric tons of artifacts, sacrifice outlets, and recursion. God do I wanna use this guy with literally every good artifact ever.

Don’t look now, but the federal budget deficit is at its lowest level since Obama took office

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) announced on Monday that the federal government’s  budget deficit will shrink this year to its lowest level since President Barack Obama took office.

The CBO says the deficit will be $468 billion for the budget year that ends in September 2015, slightly less than FY2014’s $483 billion deficit. As a share of the economy, CBO says this year’s deficit will be slightly below the historical average of the past 50 years.

Don't u think it's kinda costy to be vegan

That will depend entirely on each person and the way they’re planning to eat. Eating a mostly organic diet is more expensive in some parts of the world. Many others rely on substitutes for meat and cheese. Here where I live there is only one supermarket that offers brands like Daiya or Follow your Heart which are dairy alternatives and they’re expensive. 

I don’t consume much processed foods and is has become cheaper than when I ate animal products. Here are a couple of links that can help to save some money ;)
