Among the main attractions this year in the city that hosted the 1972 Winter Olympics is a gigantic Disney-sponsored tribute to the classic sci-fi movie Star Wars , a marketing spectacle in advance of the next installment in the series, set to be released this coming December. “

” The design, approved by Lucasfilms, features the villainous Darth Vader wielding an icy lightsaber, flanked by a posse of three Stormtroopers. Following the festival’s tradition, Japanese army troops built Snow Star Wars, as it’s called. 

  With a squadron of bulldozers, the Hokkaido-based 11th Brigade of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force worked on the project for almost a month. “

May The Force Be With US

 

 

 

” The report published by Nature magazine details how scientist has discovered a new way of binding photons together in order to form a new molecule which replicates almost exactly the nature of the iconic weapons favoured by both Jedi Knights and Sith Lords 

“Most of the properties of light we know about originate from the fact that photons are massless and do not interact,” said Harvard physics professor Mikhail Lukin. “What we have done is create a special type of medium in which photons interact with each other so strongly that they act as though they have mass, and bind together to form molecules.”

While this may not sound much like George Lucas’ vision of a galaxy far, far away, Lukin himself makes a Star Wars analogy:

“It’s not an in-apt analogy to compare this to lightsabers. When these photons interact with each other, they’re pushing against and deflect each other. The physics of what’s happening in these molecules is similar to what we see in the movies.” “

Obama Says Defense He Fought Can Stop North Korea

 

” As Pyongyang threatens a nuclear strike, the administration says our missile defenses can handle anything they can throw against us or our allies. If so it’s not because of anything the president did.

‘I can tell you that the United States is fully capable of defending against any North Korean ballistic missile attack,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said on Thursday after North Korea’s raging runt, Kim Jong-un, said Pyongyang was scrapping the 1953 armistice deal that ended the Korean War. He threatened a “preemptive” nuclear strike against the U.S.

 

If we can handle the North Korean missile threat, it is thanks to President Ronald Reagan’s derided “Star Wars” dream and the Strategic Defense Initiative he refused to surrender to Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, who met Reagan in Reykjavik, Iceland, in October 1986, and to President George W. Bush, who made missile defense a priority, not a target for budget cuts.

We thank you both.”

” President Obama met with the media after a seven minute discussion with Congress on the $85 billion sequester cuts. The president said that he couldn’t use a ‘Jedi mind-meld’ to force Congress to come to an agreement.

CNN’S JESSICA YELLIN: “Mr. President, to your question what could you do, first of all, couldn’t you just have them down here [Congressmen], and refuse to let them leave the room [laughter] until you have a deal?”

PRESIDENT: “I am not a dictator, I’m the President.”
