Just the headlines:
*Geologists and Engineers say test drill simulations for EM8ER show we need more sub-surface strata data. Recons may be starting soon.
*The latest Omni-Craze; pneumatic-'bounce' calves... "taking it back to old school styles".
*Does EM8ER's ice 'really' make bourbon taste 'better'? Drilling Sgt and connoisseur, "DED" says, YES, it could.... (could this be the end of freeze dried simulated space ice?)

Just the headlines:
*Geologists team drones have hit pay dirt! Confirmed that EM8ER ice caps hide a rich mineral and resource landscape. They say it's time to start colonization plans.
*Omni-Frame fads come and go, but non-chromium black is always in style; how monochromic deep black carbon texture frames are making a comeback with omni-pilots.
*Fighting the fire in the ice. With the proposed prospect of terraformation EM8ER, the first crews are going to have to think about exposure ice burn ... are the standard suits going to cut it? Medical and Technical specialists weigh in.

Just the headlines:

*"*You're hot then you're cold*". Engineers worry that EM8ER's bi-polar temperature fluctuations may cause micro-stress-fractures in gear...new, more flexible, materials may be needed.
*Omni-Pilots be warned... A series of homemade shoulder joints for light omni-frames was circulated at low low costs. Taikion inc and it's ball-joint manufacturing associates are warning "They may break under heavy usage", leaving you limp and double-jointed.
*Low-G environments, High-G turns, no-G zones.... what's YOUR favourite G-zone to take your AI to? The 'sisters' are curious and want to know....

[announcer voice] today's news on 'what's Thumpin'?'.
Just the headlines:

* "Whispers in the Holes". Drones have been recording 'echoes' in the 'inaudible' low frequency bandwidth range after drilling test holes in some zones of EM8ER. These 'ghost echoes' have scientist excited; could this mean there is Vibranium (Vb-200) down there?

*"Ghost" sounds that have scientists excited, are making probe pilots nervous. The 'whispers' could cause sonar malfunctions, equipment damages or worse... "...who knows what's down them holes..."

*Tired of Tube-Paste puree food when on long-range forays? Fizz-PoP-Bang foods has you covered... try their retro "Fizz-Nutter-Pop-Butter" crunch bar, it will blow your mind!

Just the headlines:

* Fringe Scientist says; "we need to look at other worlds" .... he claims there should be concerns that this world is under the 'Enshigi eye'. " *...It's too good to be true... it has everything we need... why has it remained unclaimed for so long? "
* Gate-gineers say the cost of the 9th Shadow Gate to EM8ER may have been far higher than initially expected. " We need to terraforme and mine that rock, NOW! "
* " I want me a sexy MEK/A " Demand for sexy, potentially gender based, MEK/A THMPRs is growing in the mech-mod community. Would you make your MEK/A 'stacked' if you could? Inquiring minds want to know....

Just the headlines:

* As Terraforming procedures are underway, medical experts are warning that with the ice melts we may get more than we bargain for: 'Alien Viruses' (AV's), "We need to step up our viral research and inoculation protocols to keep our people on the ground safe..." The debate on wearing PPE rages on...
* Engineers are looking into advancements in GeeSuit technologies that would double up as PPE. A new, high tensile micro mesh is in development that would act as a one-way-see-through, highly breathable and non-cumbersome protection material. Just make sure you don't put your GeeSuit inside out after pulling your double shifts... wow'zers! ....
* Fizz-PoP-Bang foods has issued a recall on their retro-food Pop-Tarts after several "blew up" after being heated. Apparently the ingredient that makes them so delicious has the adverse effect of becoming highly volatile when heated very quickly. "...I guess there really WAS too much POP in that TART ! "

HaPPy HoLiDays & MeRRy YuleTide!
Just the headlines:


* Scientists examining the new compound 'em8e'rite' have discovered "unique properties" when it is exposed to ultra sonic sound waves from sonic drills. "More research is needed"
* Engineers have discovered that the December release of the mecha hip joints are malfunctioning and make your meka look like it's doing the Rick Asley dance....yes, you have been Rick Rolled... you are welcome.
* Taikion inc and Fizz-PoP-Bang foods have teamed up to release this year's Holiday-Yuletide hot item: a fully edible Holiday Dinner! Yes Reapers & Reavers, you can now have your synthetic turkey, your bioorganic tube-cake, and eat the dishes too.... yummmmmy....

Just the headlines:


* Scientists say "We have learned a lot since the catastrophe of HD 226868. We are confident that we can hyper-harness solar energy from collapsing stars without a disastrous incident this time..." Announcement gives hope as energy reserves are running low.
* Engineers are exited at the possible integration of refined 'EM8ER'rite' (aka compound E8R9) to Meka-alloys; tests results are very exciting and have shown a wealth of potential applications. Research is ongoing.
* "To move forward, we need to look at the past" Researcher says that our immediate fuel rations can be partially aided by looking to an ancient energy resource: Sh^t. "Methane production and use could help us meet some of our immediate needs. This could be very promising!" Well, we say sh^t or get off the pot guys and, that aint no bull, sh^t... somebody smell that?
