Are we alone? Statistical analysis suggests that if we are typical, then the answer is probably yes

If the human race is typical, then we may be alone in the Universe

If there are other civilizations in the Universe, then why, after 60 years of listening and looking, haven’t we found any evidence of their existence? According to Daniel Whitmire, retired astrophysicist at the University of Arkansas, this may be because there’s no one out there to find. Using statistical analysis, Whitmire concludes that, if Earth is typical, then it isn’t possible for any other technological civilizations to exist at the same time as us.

Khloé Kardashian: ‘I’m In The Best Relationship I’ve Ever Been In’ — So Is Marriage Coming Soon??

There’s a big interview up today with Khloé Kardashian in The Mail On Sunday‘s YOU Magazine, in which the Kardashian starlet discusses at length her relationship with NBA star Tristan Thompson.

And based on her discussions, it sounds like things are going really, REALLY well — so well, in fact, that the inevitable marriage questions are bound to soon pop up!

In fact, Khlo-Money went right after the possibility of marriage, especially considering how less than a year ago, she finalized her divorce from ex-husband Lamar Odom.

Regarding the possibility of marriage with her 26-year-old beau Thompson, Khlo said:

“I’m in the best relationship I’ve ever been in and it doesn’t take a ring for me to feel that way. I believe in marriage and I want to be married again one day but I don’t have a time frame. Why do people think that marriage equates to happiness? There are a lot of people in unhealthy marriages.”

Preach!!!

She continued, too, marveling at what a great dad Tristan is to his eight-month-old son from a previous girlfriend — and how that will play into a potential future of wanting kids for this very happy couple:

“Tristan is a great dad and he definitely wants more children, but we both feel that it will happen when the time is right. We’re still in a new relationship and I love us having time together. Once you have kids you can’t get back your non-kid years … You worry about your children for the rest of your life. The concern I have is raising little human beings in a world that’s filled with such hate and terror. That seems very scary.”

Measured, mature, responsible… sounds like Khloé is doing things the right way!

More than anything, the pair sounds like they make a very good team (below):

“When [Tristan] speaks, it’s ‘us’ and ‘we,’ and that’s important because it shows that you’re sharing life. The best thing is that we’re able to communicate about anything, and I think a lot of relationships don’t flourish because people are afraid to voice their opinion, not wanting to rock the boat.”

Awww!!!

Sure sounds mature and happy and fun and meaningful, Perezcious readers — what do U think?? Think these two have what it takes to make it??

Dominican Pride Takes Over The Big Apple In Honor Of A Fallen Hero

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Dominican pride took over the streets of Manhattan Sunday afternoon as the 35th Annual Dominican Day Parade marched through Midtown.

Organizers say the parade, which started at noon, is one of the biggest parties of the year.

This year’s theme was a celebration of Dominican music and instruments.

“My mama here always taught me to be proud, right, of where I come from, so here we are, reppin’ DR,” said Lizzy from the Bronx.

Lizzy attended the parade with her mother and her cousin Kara, who lives in the Dominican Republic and is vacationing in New York. She told WCBS 880’s Mike Smeltz she saw a bit of home along Sixth Avenue.

“All the Dominicans – there’s like more Dominicans here than in the DR,” she said.

But there was also a more somber subject, as organizers dedicated Sunday’s parade to slain NYPD Detective Miosotis Familia, and presented her family with a lifetime service award.

Two of Familia’s childrenwereseen carrying a banner with a picture of their mom, who was a member of the NYPD’s Dominican Officers Association.

The parade ran along Sixth Avenue from 36th Street to 54th Street.

The Queen is, of course, 92 years old right now — and even tough she’s in generally good health, it’s said that she has told her inner circle of plans to hang up her crown at the age of 95, and pass on the role to Prince Charles.

Robert Jobson, the royal commentator for the Daily Mail, had this to say about the early plans being made for the move (below):

“I have spoken to a number of high-ranking courtiers who made it clear that preparations for a transition are moving ahead at pace. They have all confirmed that a Regency with Charles taking the lead is now, at the very least, a real possibility.”

Wow.

That’s a big move!

One senior former member of the Royal Household also added more information about the Queen and her apparent decision to wind things down in her rule (below):

“Out of the profound respect the Queen holds for the institution of monarchy and its stewardship, Her Majesty would want to make sure that she has done everything she can for her country and her people before she hands over. She is dutiful to her core. … Her Majesty is mindful of her age and wants to make sure when the time comes, the transition of the Crown is seamless. I understand the Queen has given the matter considerable thought and believes that, if she is still alive at 95, she will seriously consider passing the reign to Charles.”

Impressive!

What do U think, Perezcious readers?!

Big deal, or what???
