We’re binging on the five most popular songs in the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles chart, for the week ending January 21, 2017. It’s not a bad week, all things considered, especially if you liked last week’s songs. Number 5: Bruno Mars "24K Magic" Let’s open in fifth place, where Bruno Mars holds steady with “24 K Magic.” Bruno has a Filipina mother, and rumors were flying that he’d be in the Philippines to sing at the Miss Universe pageant on January 30. Unfortunately, Tourism Undersecretary Kat DeCastro says that’s not the case. Mars is busy preparing for his world tour, beginning on March 28 in Antwerp, Belgium. Number 4: The Weeknd Featuring Daft Punk Starboy" The Weeknd and Daft Punk slip to fourth place with “Starboy,” two weeks after finally hitting number one. The Weeknd has been seen out and about with Selena Gomez, but the web site Hollywood Life reports that he wants to keep the romance low-key.

By Ivan Petricevic The great American southwest is considered by many as a place of extremes, ancient people, spirits and legends that even today, inhabit the region. Thousands of years ago, an ancient culture flourished in the region and left amazing footprints in the sub-American continent, giant cities, dwellings in the cliffs and ceremonial chambers called kivas, were found, and all of them belonged to the Anasazi. Even today, there are people who firmly believe in these stories, and that the spirits of this ancient culture still inhabit the lands. Today most of the world’s population lives in cities surrounded by a man-made environment. But many still believe in another world, full of spirits and ancient magic, a world that can be reached through mystical experiences and legends passed on from generation to generation. But how real are these stories we hear about? The region called “Four Corners” well-known by the confluence of four states: Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico is indigenous to the land of the ancient Anasazi and other great ancient cultures.

There I was, making my rounds at the local cars and coffee as I do every Saturday. Except, this Saturday was different. This was New Year’s Eve. What is normally an impressible assemblage of diverse and eclectic automobiles was significantly down on attendees, hampered due to an unusual weather phenomenon calledrain”—Edit: I’ve been informed the majority of the country east of California experiences this regularly? Anyway, as I was about to depart my Saturday ritual, feeling uncharacteristically disappointed, a pint-sized piece of British cheer sputtered its way into the open lot, bringing a smile to everyone’s faces. Like some kind of magic trick, out hopped four full-grown adults. I got to chatting with the owner, Jorge Sanchez, who was ecstatic everyone took notice of his beloved 1963 Morris Cooper. After poring over the tidy little details of this very squared away Mini, I had to get a closer look.

Batten down the hatches and don your flak jacket: The purveyors of the world's most hated motorcycles are back. This time, the infamous El Solitario crew has done unspeakable things to... a Zaeta. That's right, you're looking at a Zaeta 530 DT : A street-legal flat track racer powered by a 528cc DOHC single, making close to 60 hp and weighing a meager 255 pounds (115 kilos). It's perfect for going sideways around a dirt track—and wholly inappropriate for long distance road trips. So that's exactly what El Solitario did. Once they finishing working their black magic on the Zaeta, they took it on a 1000-mile tarmac jaunt and raced it at Dirt Quake V. Shop boss David Borras tell us how it all started: “I think it was in the Sideburn blog where I first saw the Zaeta , maybe five years ago,” he says. “The bike immediately seduced me and got me fantasizing about how cool it would be to ride it like a hooligan on any terrain.

While this is not the preferred solution to the problem, those pulling the strings may give the people of truth no other choice than to take their business elsewhere and migrate to more open systems. This would take time to do, but it should at least be in the back of people’s minds as further censorship comes down the pipeline, like net neutrality, Internet ID laws, and the further enhancement of the Big Brother state. Finally, one of the more effective ways to get the message of truth out, which is often overlooked, is the use of memes . While memes may seem innocent and petty, they can actually be quite powerful in slowly deprogramming the minds of people and opening them up to real truth. Some people have even referred to this practice as meme magic because of its effectiveness at providing simple, easy to read bits of information that are non-threatening for unawakened.

Israeli magician Uri Geller, right, holds a bent key belonging to a British journalist, during a demonstration of his powers of telepathy and psychokinesis. Geller worked with the CIA for years in an attempt to exploit his powers' for CIA purposes. Oct. 30, 1974. (AP/Dave Caulkin) (REPORT) The juicy bits of the CIA’s massive document dump may have centered on their overt use of torture against detainees and the internal debates underpinning that policy, but it’s far from the only thing in there that warrants a second look. The documents also include substantial information about CIA obsession with UFO sightings, policies for using invisible ink, and their determined investigation into magicians. Reports on the UFOs described some 20% of sightings as “unexplained,” and sought more cooperation from the Pentagon in documentation of such sightings, particularly pushing to ensure that all high-ranking Air Force commanders were briefed on the rules for reporting about them.

We can keep a tidy house here and there’s lots I can bring to the club. “I went to Cardiff and I’ve shown the chairman some things I had at Cardiff when I took over and now it’s about changing this club around and bringing a positive attitude, something different to the club.’’ Pools are in an uneasy position in League Two, sitting in 18th spot. They need an instant lift, and they go to bottom-placed Newport a week tomorrow. Jones said: “I have no magic wand, just come in and enjoy the job and do it to the best of your ability. “Let’s hit the ground running straight away. “It’s important to trust people and be loyal. But they are ambitious too. “Everywhere I’ve been and been successful they’ve had a part in it. Not just down to me. “What’s a Dave Jones team?

Villagers can use this money to support themselves during this time of crisis,” said Kritsada Muadnoi, a gold buyer and adviser to the local government. “We are lucky here that nature has compensated us for the disaster.” Pineapple farmer Samruay Kamlin, 59, said just the prospect of finding gold thrilled her. So far, she has only uncovered a few flakes, but she obsesses over the hunt day and night. “It is like a magic drug for me,” she said. “I wake up at 3 a.m. thinking that I have to go look over here or there for gold.” Some, inevitably, are disappointed. Local villager Yuang Padthong, 67, said that she earned around 2,000 baht ($57) a month cultivating coconuts, but since her crop and the local market had been destroyed, she was trying her hand in gold panning. She left empty-handed. “There were more people here a few days ago and they were able to find a lot.
