| | |
See PSA below

(Best Syndication News) - Singer and songwriter Cyndi Lauper, and the True Colors Fund’s Forty to Non Project, had produced a national public service announcement (PSA) to get citizens involved in the yearly campaign to help count the number of homeless people in over 3,000 cities and counties throughout the United States.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is asking participants to help count the number of homeless persons on the street and in shelters on a certain night. This “Point-in-Time” count is being planned yearly for the last 10 days in January. With the statistics, local planners will better understand the homelessness rates in their area and make plans to respond to the problem.

December 21, 2012 end of Mayan Calendar - BSN

(Best Syndication News) - For years, the doomsday soothsayers have been forewarning of a doomsday scenario for December 21, 2012. NASA has received so many inquiries about this doomsday event that they have presented several discussions disputing the end of the world. NASA is so certain the end is not coming that they have created several videos debunking the doomsday predictions.

NASA says people are contacting them with various scenarios. One reason the agency has been contacted involves the idea that ancient Sumarians talked about a planet called Nibiru (or Planet X) that will enter into Earth's orbit. This Planet X could supposedly change the way the Earth spins; some people think that Noah's flood was caused by Nibiru. The Nibiru prediction failed the first time in May 2003, and then the prediction was moved to December 2012. NASA said that no such planet has been spotted heading our way.
