In case you didn't know, bullets, bombs, and nuclear weapons are old school. War mongers were far more interested in the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) "side-effect" of nuclear blasts than the explosion itself. They sought to harness these energies, in new pain-generating ways, to subjugate and demoralize all opposition. This page will contain extensive information on the history, current use, and future of directed energy weapons.In case you didn't know, bullets, bombs, and nuclear weapons are old school.

A brewing Capitol Hill fight pits California winemakers against beer wholesalers and others who are hoping to outflank a landmark Supreme Court decision.
One hundred and seven lawmakers, nearly one-fourth of the House of Representatives, support legislation that would make it easier for states to hinder direct shipments of alcohol. The bill effectively takes the fizz out of a 2005 Supreme Court decision that said some bans on direct shipments violated the Constitution.
The bill's supporters say they want to bolster state alcohol enforcement powers.
"With (the bill), Congress is taking an important step toward ending the erosion of the states' ability to regulate alcohol," the president of the National Beer Wholesalers Association, Craig Purser, declared when the bill was introduced earlier this year.
The bill’s opponents say it would benefit booze distributors at the expense of wineries and consumers.
“It really threatens the progress that’s been made on direct shipping of wine,” Rep. George Radanovich, R-Calif., said Friday. “It puts into jeopardy all of the work we’ve done.”
Himself a former winemaker, Radanovich co-chairs the 250-member Congressional Wine Caucus. The caucus supports direct shipping and will play a big role in what happens next.
Realistically, the legislation to complicate direct shipments has little to no chance in the remaining months of this Congress.

Spam has been an annoyance of everyone's lives since the mail carrier. We'd get junk about lawyers and coupons for unknown places on a daily basis. This same format moved over to the internet as well. Over 90% of the email sent is considered spam or unwanted junk, and costs us in productivity and about $0.10 per spam email. While it may seem like a minor annoyance, there is much more to spam than Viagra and Cialis.Spam has been an annoyance of everyone's lives since the mail carrier. We'd... more
With Constellation woefully over budget, what does that mean for the Ares I and Ares V rockets? If rumors are right, it could mean that the DIRECT team's Jupiter 241 stretched heavy configuration will be NASA's new launch vehicle of choice. Of course no one will really know until official announcements are made, and at this point it is all educated speculation.With Constellation woefully over budget, what does that mean for the Ares I and Ares V... more
