The Final Theory of Everything, an in-depth interview with the author
In 2002 Mark McCutcheon published his book The Final Theory at Universal Publishers. It was an instant success on the Amazon website, however it also created controversy. It presented to the world a new Theory of Everything that worked out of the box to replace Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation, Einstein's Theories of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. It answers why we won't find dark matter or dark energy in the universe.
Culpa Innata by B. Barmanbek: A Dystopian novel about a New World Order
Culpa Innata is a well written, imaginative, and realistic dystopian novel set in the future and taking place in Eastern Europe. It paints a picture of what a New World Order might look like following a great economic meltdown, worldwide riots, globalisation, and some affluent trillionaires buying the worldwide debt to introduce a new system in their own vision, a vision where mega-corporations control the world.

Cult bands from the 80s
When you hear people in America talking about some great import band that only they seem to know anything about, and for which they bought everything they could back then in the 80s, including large posters, bootlegs and obscure EPs, spending a fortune on this but feeling great about it... well that was me 25 years ago.
IMF Dominique Strauss-Kahn's charges: the French believe it's a plot
Le Monde confirmed in a poll conducted by CSA that for 57% of the French population, Strauss-Kahn is the victim of a plot. Reviewing the French Press reveals that most of the mass media in France published articles of main political figures, including political rivals, stating that they do not believe the charges against Dominique Strauss-Kahn are genuine. Here is a review of the most substantial articles in the French Press.
The right to demonstrate is the sign of a healthy democracy
As a Court Clerk in a criminal court, most cases just leave me totally indifferent. You could easily think I have lost my heart about such things a few years ago, incapable to feel anything now either for the defendants or their victims. True, I admit it. When you see it every day, the same sort of cases one after the other, you quickly become insensitive to it all. But not this time.

John F Kennedy just won't die
I couldn't care less for JFK, apart from the fact that he is now but an international airport. I only care to see how many died talking about his death, over 40 now at the last count, and I wonder, deep down, if I will be shot for writing this article. The powers that be certainly do not kid around when it comes to JFK, they kill you outright even today. Let's test it then, I don't care dying an accidental death.

Expansion Theory - Our Best Candidate for a Final Theory of Everything?
On 4 March 2010, New Scientist magazine published an article entitled "Knowing the mind of God: Seven theories of everything", where Michael Marshall reviewed the most promising candidates for the Theory of Everything, the Holy Grail of theoretical physics. So, what does this report card have to say --" is our search for this ultimate scientific understanding going well?

How to Create a New World Order
In science fiction there is a specific category of books called alternate history where you simply travel into the past and suddenly change history. What if you could travel to 1754 just before the French and Indian War in America with a modern army of the future, and decided to build a new world order? Would you stop the Seven Years' War that started in 1756? Where would you begin, how would you go about it?

Humankind's future: social and political Utopia or Idiocracy?
By some coincidence in the last three days I read Men Like Gods of H. G. Wells and watch the films Idiocracy, City of Ember and WALL-E. They all deal with humankind's future, a very bleak future that could possibly become the ultimate Utopia or perfect world, not before another world war, the extinction of humanity, and survival of a few humans to come back to Earth from space, or emerging from underground to start anew.
Revolutionary new physics could lead to ultimate weapons of mass destruction
As a sci-fi author and science consultant for films and television documentaries, I have made it my mission to seek out every alternate theory out there – no matter how crazy they may seem – to explore any possibility of new physics that might be uncovered and put to use. That is, until I came across something so perfect and convincing that I had to stop in my tracks.

Why are we dreaming we can change the world?
What are dreams? For that matter, what is sleeping? We spend at least a third of our time sleeping and perhaps also dreaming, in fact, sleeping and dreaming can almost define us more than anything else we will ever do or achieve in our lifetime, and yet so rarely we stop to wonder about their real significance, and how it could actually change the world.

Embracing women and gay rights
At the forefront of all human rights in the world today, before we could even be scandalized by how blatantly religious leaders speak against and bully gays, lesbians and transgenders, would be women rights. In a way these battles for recognition of the most basic human rights are very similar.

The battle of the sexes is still raging
Men and women are all the same, you just alienate each other as you're simply incompatible. We're all tired of this life, we're all tired of each other. If we could only just shut up once in a while, the battle of the sexes could finally be over.

Is it too late to grow a conscience?
As humanity, do we have a conscience? Sometimes it could be opened to debate as we can easily point out many human beings who do not appear to have one at all. Mostly politicians, religious leaders, management and all sorts of criminals. Maybe none of them require a conscience to reach ultimate power and wealth. What about us, is it too late to develop a conscience?

Mind control is no conspiracy theory
If humanity was on trial, or at least our governments, the prosecution would certainly order a bad character application, also perhaps a psychiatric report, and it would not be pretty. The list of antecedents, past offences, would be infinite. The pre-sentence report would certainly state prison for life, and suggest just about every single rehabilitation programme, once behind bars. But what about if you were on trial?
