ESA tests the potential of grabbing derelict satellites using a simple net

The ESA has been testing the possibility of using one of mankind’s earliest inventions to cope with one of its newest challenges, by testing a concept that would allow satellites to net and de-orbit space debris in a safe and controlled manner. Space debris is an ever-increasing problem, and agencies around the world are starting to take steps to preserve the low-Earth orbit environment vital for a sustainable space industry… Continue Reading ESA tests the potential of grabbing derelict satellites using a simple net

Jenny McCarthy Compares The View To The Titanic! Gives It About ‘One More Year’ Before It Goes Down!

Jenny McCarthy and her husband Donnie Wahlberg were just on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM show.

While there, Jenny opened up about her short stint on The View. Her outlook for the show is pretty bleak. She said:

“They might try one more year and then I think the Titanic might go down.”

Whoa! She’s not dancing around her opinions!

It’s not like things have been looking good for The View, hosts have been moving in and out of the show for years… and recently, rival show The Talk beat The View in ratings!

Her hubby Donnie chimed in:

“She’s very gracious about The View, and I will say, I told her the day that she left, I said, ‘They’re gonna ask you back within six months.’ And she won’t say it, but they did. Not officially, but they did.”

Jenny found The View was too stifling and now that she’s got her own show on SiriusXM just like Howard, she loves it, saying:

“One of [The View] producers called and said, would I ever consider it? And I said, ‘No, thank you.’ Because I couldn’t be me! You know — you called it from the start. I couldn’t be myself.

I couldn’t be happier here, Howard. I’ve never been more happy with a job in my entire life… I get to be myself.”

Yeah, getting to be yourself is pretty important.

Especially when that person is the super unique Jenny McCarthy!

Glad she’s happy doing her amazing show Dirty, Sexy, Funny on SiriusXM!

Way to do you, girrrl!!

Mick Cronin Cleared to Return to Coaching Cincinnati Basketball

The University of Cincinnati received excellent news Monday, as head coach Mick Cronin was cleared by doctors to resume his coaching career.   

Cronin missed the season due to arterial dissection, vascular condition that isn’t considered life-threatening, but on Monday, Cincinnati posted a press release indicating he would be able to return to coaching. Cronin himself spoke on his recovery and his return: 

I would like to thank the entire University of Cincinnati community and administration for their support during the past three months. I also would like to thank UC Health and its neurosurgery department, especially Dr. Norberto Andaluz and Dr. Todd Abruzzo, for the care that I have received.

Obviously, I’m excited to be coaching again, but most importantly, I’m grateful to be 100 percent healthy.

Cronin coached the first nine games of the season before Larry Davis took over in his stead. Davis led the Bearcats to a 16-9 record and the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament, where they were eliminated by Kentucky. Cronin did remain active with the program, however, assisting in game plans and other coaching staff matters, per Cincinnati’s press release, though he didn’t run practices or coach during the games.

In nine years as the head coach at Cincinnati, Cronin has posted a 184-118 record. He previously spent three years as the head coach at Murray State.

The Bearcats will certainly be pleased to be getting him back in his full role, and there will be big expectations for the 2015-16 season after Cincinnati’s strong campaign this year with a young squad and his altered role.
