When “The Day The Earth Stood Still” was released in 1951 the film served as an allegory for nuclear proliferation. But today’s remake of the sci-fi thriller is instead about global warming and environmentalism. In this video, ScienCentral speaks with Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly about these issues.

“The Day The Earth Stood Still” to be beamed into space– quirky PR stunt where they are using “redundant high-powered klystron amplifiers connected by a traveling waveguide to a five meter parabolic dish antenna.” The funny thing is that Earth has been beaming video into space ever since TV was invented. We think that’s why the aliens never come.

    In fact, the majority of people I know believe
    that any and ALL MLM is a scam. Whether we’re learning from Robert Kiyosaki,
    Robert Allen, the folks at Power Prospecting System, or
    our upline mentors, we are always learning and pioneering marketing techniques.
    Generating your own list of MLM leads is way better than paying for them.
