  • EastEnders Fans Confused As Bosses Seemingly Forget That Steven Beale Is Gay

    EastEnders’ fans were left over the moon last Friday when Lauren Branning finally returned to Albert Square, with the big twist being that she’d brought black sheep Steven Beale back from New Zealand with her instead of his brother, and her boyfriend, Peter Beale. Yesterday’s episode soon made it clear that the two were hiding a “big secret” and although most viewers guessed pretty quickly that Lauren and Steven were secretly in a relationship, many dismissed the idea when they remembered that Steven had rather dramatically come out as gay a few years back. …Which is why they were so perplexed when the episode came to an end with the two enjoying a massive smooch in Dot Branning’s living room to the sound of those famous ‘doof doofs’.

    Otis Johnson was released from prison in 2014 after being locked away for 44 years. In an interview and video for Al Jazeera, Johnson visited Times Square in New York City, where he was surprised and confused by the modern technology surrounding him: People "with wires in their ears" listening to music who looked like CIA agents, pedestrians "talking to themselves" on their iPhones, and neon video billboards illuminating storefront windows. Johnson offers a fascinating perspective on our world today and the modern technology that many shrug off and take for granted.

    For decades, we have been listening to the skies using radio telescopes - hoping to catch the faint chatter of alien signals. Instead of listening for radio signals, we should look for the telltale ‘flashes’ of civilisations using ‘directed energy’ - a pioneering technology championed by Stephen Hawking for a project to send a spacecraft to Alpha Centauri in 20 years.
