Armageddon is closer then you think


ALERT 🚨 This just in!  

We have 1 billions years before the Sun’s slow expansion will cause the temperature at the surface of the Earth to rise.  According to BIG THINK

  • Oceans will evaporate, and the atmosphere will become laden with water vapor, which (like carbon dioxide) is a very effective greenhouse gas. 
  • The oceans will boil dry and the water vapour will escape into space. 
  • In a billion years from now the Earth will be a very hot, dry and uninhabitable.

Theoretical Physicist Stephen Hawking urges everyone to realize, it’s time to free ourselves from Mother Earth.

STEPHEN HAWKING

“I believe that the long-term future of the human race must be in space. It will be difficult enough to avoid disaster on planet Earth in the next hundred years, let alone the next thousand, or million. The human race shouldn’t have all its eggs in one basket, or on one planet. Let’s hope we can avoid dropping the basket until we have spread the load.”

BUT WAIT! 

Armageddon is closer then you think. According to Stephen Hawking, we actually have between 100 years to the next 1000 years, before a nearby supernova, an asteroid, or a black hole will do us in. 

AND – 

It’s already noted, there’s a Black Hole only 1600 light years from earth. In light year standards, that’s practically in our backyard. At first, scientist believed that the nearest black hole to Earth was the one at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. But recently they have discovered a new BLACK HOLE known as a micro quasar. It’s named V4641 Sgr and it was located in the Sagittarius arm of the Milky Way. When it was first discovered in 1999 they had thought it was another star. However, upon closer observation, it was noticed its brightness is six times greater than when first observed through radio telescopes. It’s now confirmed to be a closer BLACK HOLE only 1600 light years away from Earth 🌏.

BUT – 


There’s hope for mankind after all.  

Our Earth is 4.2 light years from Proxima Centauri. Once scientists figure out ( and they are working on the problem right now) how to make a space engine travel at the speed of light, so we can be in Proxima Centauri in 4.2 years.

AND – 

There is other good news. Mars can be inhabited within the next 25 years, if we push all our efforts into it right NOW! Also, as said, the nearest M class planet to Earth is within reach, our neighbour Proxima Centauri. If we spend all our time getting mankind to other planets before our time runs out ( bad case scenario, 100 💯 years ) it’s possible we may save the human race. 

Otherwise, we WILL be another statistic, just like the Dinosaurs.  



THE BAD NEWS

Not all of mankind we be saved. It’s predicted the wealthy and the prominent few will survive on other planets, considering the fact they don’t waste their time with ridiculous efforts on politics.  

As far as you or me ? 

Well, I’m sorry, we’re OUT-OF-LUCK.  

In other words, our grandchildren may see the end of civilization as we know it.

Character Karen Jefferson’s

Today I will discuss my character layout for Karen Jefferson for my screenplay BLACK ANGELS – The Movie. Recently I wrote about my character outline for Commander Cardin and Priestesses Isis

CORPORAL KAREN JEFFERSON

Karen is a Geological Science Officer assigned to Starship SIRUS-S757 under the command of Chief Mission Commander Cardin Mason. Karen and Cardin are in a relationship, with Cardin thinking of settling down with Karen, after this last vital mission on Earth.

But, if it’s up to King Osiris, their marriage won’t take place, because Karen’s bloodline is not of royal decent. If it’s up to King Osiris, he would have Karen to himself, like her mother before her( as rumours have stated). 

Karen’s family comes from a long line of what they referred to as DREAMERS

Dreamers are those who have the ability to enter someone else’s dreams without them knowing. Doing so can give them the option to change ones thoughts or actions. They are also enticing, provocative and can easily attract both sexes. 

In her mid twenties* Karen would carelessly flaunt herself, attracting men or women of wealth or stature, even though it’s forbidden by the ELDERS OF DREAMERS. Even though DREAMERS can enter someone else’s dreams, it’s taboo to use this form of power for selfish reasons. DREAMERS are used in certain circumstances, to help the king or in the times of war, against their enemies. Karen is too proud and will do as she wishes, with or without the elders consent. 

Karen is spoiled, with riches from her family. Her father, Torus is a prestigious Five-Star General in the Royal Emperor of Guards. King Osiris** relies on General Torus Jefferson for his high regard for the SIRIAN PEOPLE. As a Dreamer, his input is valuable, as is his keen interest in helping out as much as possible. General Torus loves to talk and is the centre of attention. His daughter Karen is his only child, so it’s understandable why she is spoiled. Karen’s mother died in a freak accident while visiting a neighbouring planet. Her death is still an “Open-Case File” with rumours, King Osiris may have been responsible. 

Since her earlier life experiences with men and women relationships, Karen has grown a little more responsible (now in her thirties*) following heads-over-heels in love with Commander Cardin. Their flirtatious courting is quite comical from an outsiders point-of-view. 

Karen Jefferson is intelligent and quick on her feet. She became a flight pilot officer by the time she was 21. 

Her skills as a Geologist and a Flight Pilot became a useful asset to King Osiris, as he needed someone to find the RED CRYSTAL. Besides, the king is secretly attracted to Karen. Karen is unaware of the King’s intentions. As far as she’s concerned, her luck has struck gold. Having the king interested in her wellbeing is an honour. 

CHARACTER OUTLINE FOR KAREN JEFFERSON 

  • Karen is in her 30’s*, sexy brunette with green eyes and considered a health nut. 8 stone (118 lbs or 53.6 kg) 5′- 8″ tall 
  • She can be stubborn and pretentious and won’t let anyone stand in her way, be it success or her man. 
  • Her ego is on a scale of 10. 
  •  She enjoys flaunting her good looks and body, for all to see. 
  • It’s not like her to be with one man for very long, but she can’t resist the “bad boy” attitude of Commander Cardin. 
  •  Once she’s hooked onto her partner of choice, it’s best to stay out of her way, if you know what I mean.  
  • She’s bi and had past relationships with both men and women.
  • Her military skills are above the rest, excelling in martial arts, the art of knife throwing and master of automatic weapons. 
  • Her flying skills are considered reckless, but other men refer her to as a “Dare Devil”. Her nickname stuck as “”Sexy Rexy”.
  • Karen can be the jealous type, sometimes seeing or read things that aren’t there. It’s best not to piss her off, as she will take a stand and fight, if need be. 
  • On a professional standing, Karen enjoys her work as a Geologist and loves to fly. 
  • Men are easily controlled by Karen, but not so much with women.  
  • Most women think Karen as conceded and a gold-digger. Unless, there’s a woman that’s attracted to her. 
  • She doesn’t like children, thinking of them only as a nuisance. Even though, the SIRIAN PEOPLE highly valued their children and consider them as rebirths of THE GODS OF SIRIUS. 

Overall, the character of KAREN JEFFERSON is egotistical, arrogant and self absorbed. Even with her high intelligence, its all about KAREN and her goals in life. Anyone in her way – watch out!

**The age of the SIRIAN RACE in Earth years is 3X. For example: 30 years old X 4 = 120 years in Earth years. Their lifespan is 4 X greater then the average Homo-Sapiens. 

* King Osiris is your common political King, only concerned with his own self worth and riches. He pretends to care about his people, but in fact, he cares very little about them. King Osiris has the “me-me-me” syndrome, always concerned for his wealth and stature. On the outside he seems concerned for your health and welfare, but underneath lies an arrogant self-centred Sirian God, referred to as THE GODS OF SIRUS

Meeting William Shatner 


My daughter Tianndra had the most wonderful dream that I just had to share with you – lol. 

It goes like this : 

“I had a dream that you were coming over for Thanksgiving dinner and I was supposed to pick you up from the airport. But a friend stopped by and we started drinking so I forgot. So then this big van pulled up in our driveway driven by William Shatner and he dropped you off.”  [AWESOMENESS!  William Shatner ( my buddy and friend) gave me a ride from the airport, not to mention he’s in my hometown – LOL. ]

Tianndra continues: 

“Then I forgot to defrost the turkey but by the time we got it defrosted it was 10 at night so we couldn’t have turkey dinner. Lol. But you (that’s me) were so happy because you got to drive with William Shatner – lol.

That’s all I remember from that dream. Hahaha…”

I love it! Now for that dream to become true 😎 Thank you Tianndra for sharing such an awesome dream. 

Can you imagine if that happened?  

My daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter had the privilege to meet William Shatner during last year’s Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, taking a photo shoot, as you see above.  I love my granddaughter’s expression 🙄

Have you met William Shatner
