Help with a concept

Our planet exists in a galaxy with a billion other stars and planets in a universe with billions of other galaxies.
The universe expanded for billions of years. According to the big bang theory. It is said today that the expansion is decreasing.

I have always wondered what the universe is expanding in. Is is expanding within a space of some kind, a vacuum of some kind. What would we find if we escaped the universe?? Would we find nothing or something??

Medical Breakthrough Over the Weekend

The federal government of the United States has just confirmed that a medical breakthrough

They stated that they were sorry they closed up all the Medical Marijuana Clinics during the last months.
They stated to make up for this mistake they have decided to give a company in New York exclusive rights to any money to be made for this surprising breakthrough.

Silicon Valley execs blast SOPA in open letter

Many of Silicon Valley's most successful entrepreneurs and executives are warning of the dangers of the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act in a new open letter to Washington, D.C.

It's signed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin, Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, PayPal co-founder Elon Musk, Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang, among others. It will appear as a paid advertisement in The New York Times, The Washington Post, and other newspapers.

The letter's timing is no coincidence. Rep. Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican who drafted SOPA, has scheduled a committee vote tomorrow on a slightly revised version and still highly controversial version--call it SOPA v2.0.

SOPA will "give the U.S. government the power to censor the Web using techniques similar to those used by China, Malaysia and Iran," the letter says. Chris Dodd, the chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America, recently invoked China as a model, saying that "when the Chinese told Google that they had to block sites" the company complied, according to a report at Variety.com. Dodd backed away from that comparison in a speech (PDF) yesterday, saying it's unfair to compare shutting down "foreign rogue sites and the policies of repressive governments."

Is Michele coming out of the closet??

Bachmann keeps hits on ‘NewtRomney’
By Geneva Sands-Sadowitz - 12/11/11 12:17 PM ET


Republican Presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) came out swinging against rival GOP contenders Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich on Sunday as she aimed to paint them similar to President Obama on healthcare, cap and trade and the bank bailouts, dubbing them "NewtRomney."

"It is very clear that there's not a dime's worth of difference between the two of them because both of them have advocated for the healthcare mandate," said Bachmann on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday.

The Minnesota congresswoman slammed former Massachusetts Gov. Romney and former Speaker of the House Gingrich for being "on the same side" of the healthcare issue as Obama a charge she levelled at her opponents during Saturday's GOP debate.


"When you take a look and people say this is a two man race I would agree, but the one man is 'NewtRomney' and the other man is Michele Bachmann, the only proven consistent conservative," said Bachmann.


This statement may be very telling ..........
