Should you avoid Salmon? A video right after the break describes how Salmon is being farmed with pesticides that could keep the fish healthy but are poisonous to human health! From Vietnam to Norway, some fish farms are using such poisonous methods to increase their profits, and the people who consume these Salmons all over the world would not know that they could endanger their health by consuming these Salmons.
Back in November 14, 2011, I had written “Can Thorium Be The Only One Element That Energizes The World Of The Future?” article, and this article highlighted what some nuclear energy experts had suggested. They suggested that the world might be safer and more energy abundant if nuclear energy can be developed with Thorium (90-Th) and not of Uranium (92-U). At the time of the writing, I was pessimistic about Thorium future. Just now though, I’d read The Telegraph’s “China blazes trail for ‘clean’ nuclear power from thorium” article, and suddenly Thorium seems to get a lot more attention than usual. The Telegraph article suggested that not only China, but Norway, Japan, and UK are also looking into ways that they can harness Thorium for nuclear energy. With all of the commotions for Thorium now, I suppose to be optimistic about a possible future with abundant amount of safe, green energy. Nonetheless, the future has yet to be written, therefore we cannot be too sure on such a future until we really see it.

Update: Before you go on reading the rest, please read this correction. Netflix will air Lilyhammer show next month. If you check out Lilyhammer on Netflix now, the show will not be available. I guess, until next month then.
Forbes reports Netlfix airs its own original show Lilyhammer. The shows is about a mobster who got shipped to Norway, because he entered a witness protection program. From watching the trailer, I think the show is along the category of mix elements of crime and comedy. Nonetheless, I don’t really know since I haven’t watched the show yet even though I have Netflix account. I’ll be checking out the show soon.
As long Netflix can launch more original shows, I think Netflix will be a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately, I think Netflix will always be held hostage to Internet Service Providers, because they actually have to rely on the networks of Internet Service Providers to deliver the contents. It’s understandable that several big Internet Service Providers are also providing their own TV programs. The conflicts between Netflix and big Internet Service Providers are bound to happen and continuing to happen as things are that obvious between them.
Netflix might want to try to launch satellites of their own to partly break free from Internet Service Providers. You never know if the big Internet Service Providers decide to become unreasonable. Also, you never know new law and regulations might become inhospitable toward the services that Netflix provides. Having a network which Netflix can totally rely on to deliver contents is probably invaluable to Netflix’s future.
I think Netflix is heading in the right direction by providing Netflix original shows. I do not know how much I’ll like or hate Netflix’s Lilyhammer show, but I know I’m still waiting for Netflix’s the House of Cards. If I’m right, Netflix might air the House of Cards in late of this year. Check out Lilyhammer trailer right after the break.
