He spoke out about the probe on his own Twitter page and said: „Cop said he was in possession of 30 tweets by me. I asked if any contained criminal material. He said…No.

„I asked if any came close to being criminal…and he read me a limerick. Honestly. A limerick. A cop read me a limerick over the phone.“

NASA Erased First Moonwalk Tapes, But Restores Copies

(16. Juli 2009) The good news is he found where they went. The bad news is they were part of a batch of 200,000 tapes that were degaussed — magnetically erased — and re-used to save money.

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: NASA finds missing moon landing tapes

(28. Juni 2009) The Sunday Express can now reveal that the missing tapes containing the original high quality images have been found.

If the visual data can be retrieved, Nasa is set to reveal them to the world as a key plank of celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary of the landings next month.

The tapes show in much more detail than almost anyone has previously seen the surface of the moon beneath the patriotic symbol of the US flag.

Crucially, they could once and for all dispel 40 years of wild conspiracy theories.

Will UK isolate itself after Brexit?

Historically, unlike Japan, which has been secluded, the UK has always maintained close ties with the European continent. Not only do its religions and races come from the continent, but it is also economically close to Europe and politically part of the European royal family network. Queen Victoria was also broadly called the „European grandmother“.

In order to understand the relationship between the UK and the European continent, the Hundred Years‘ War is a useful beginning. …

Climate Change: The Coming Calamity

(7.11.2018) Those who give up now are forgetting how quickly things have happened before in human history. Nations have frequently gone on war footing and their peoples have quickly adapted. The collapse of an old regime – and this is the revolutionary vocabulary French sociologist Bruno Latour uses to speak of today’s world – is only really noticed by the mighty and the masses when it actually happens. Nobody can know beforehand what the world will look like after the revolution.

Klimawandel: Die Sintflut kommt

(4.11.2018) Wer jetzt aufgibt, vergisst, wie schnell es in der Menschheitsgeschichte immer mal wieder gegangen ist. Kriegswirtschaften hat es viele gegeben, und die Menschen wussten sich ihnen anzupassen. Dass ein Ancien Régime in sich zusammenfällt – in diesem Revolutionsvokabular spricht Bruno Latour von der heutigen Welt – , merken die Regenten und die Masse immer erst dann, wenn es wirklich geschieht. Dass vorher niemand wissen kann, wie die Welt nach der Revolution aussieht, liegt im Wesen der Geschichte.

John Kelly and John Bolton Have Shouting Match Over Immigration

(18.10.2018) The three people said Mr. Kelly and Mr. Bolton were sparring over an issue that has frequently angered the president and has often prompted him to lash out at Kirstjen Nielsen, who succeeded Mr. Kelly as the secretary of homeland security after serving as his deputy chief of staff in the White House. Mr. Bolton was siding with the president, who has angrily blamed Ms. Nielsen for failing to stanch the flow of migrants across the border, while Mr. Kelly, who is fiercely protective of his protégé, defended her, the people said.
