Late Night is Back

9:00am - My goal today is to watch the return of the late night shows. I usually just take time to watch the monologues, and if I don't like them, I delete them along with the rest of the show, depending on who the guests are. Will be back later ...

Late-night shows return with plenty of snarky fodder post-writers' strike

10:10am - I just watched Stephen Colbert which you probably guessed would be my first choice. To catch up on the humor we missed - he did a double monologue highlighting events as far back as June. Favorite joke: On the matter of prosecutors accusing Robert Menendez, the top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, of taking bribes in exchange for helping protect Egypt's access to billions in U.S. - Colbert said it was a .... "Pyramid Scheme."

Colbert's guest was Neil DeGrasse Tyson who spoke about the uses and benefits of artificial intelligence - and also UFOs and extraterrestrials featuring that pic of the alleged mummified alien recently in the news. I didn't get the feeling he believed it was real, but he keeps an open mind and is very careful with his choice of words even though most of the time he's overly animated and distracting - or maybe that's how scientists, like magicians, spin a tale and get us wondering.

11:30am - Jimmy Kimmel had some hilarious things to say - as well as clips - featuring the stupid things Trump has said and done over the past months. Trump is probably going to lose his fortune which rests in the hands of Judge Arthur Engoron. So why didn't he get a jury trial? According to Jimmy - Trump's lawyers forgot to fill out the form requesting a jury trial. "Only the best people".

Jimmy's guest was Arnold Schwarzenegger - who like Neil Degrasse Tyson was promoting his new book. Interesting conversation as I'm a Schwarzenegger fan but if I was really busy today I would've passed on this interview.

12:30pm - Jimmy Fallon talked about The Sphere - a spherical music and entertainment arena in Nevada near the Las Vegas Strip. You've probably seen clips of it on the news or other media. Very cool virtual reality that looks even cooler from space. Reality itself is nothing more that streaming consciousness that we pause to connect with as per our programming.

Nobel Prizes 2023

Nobel Prize in Physics

Physics Nobel Prize rewards science on a 'tiny timescale'

This year's Nobel Prize in Physics rewards experiments with light that capture "the shortest of moments" and opened a window on the world of electrons. The award goes to Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz and Anne L'Huillier. Their work demonstrated a way to create extremely short pulses of light that can be used to capture and study rapid processes inside atoms.

Nobel Prize in Medicine

Nobel Prize goes to scientists behind mRNA Covid vaccines

The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded to a pair of scientists who developed the technology that led to the mRNA Covid vaccines. Professors Katalin Kariko and Drew Weissman will share the prize. The technology was experimental before the pandemic, but has now been given to millions of people around the world to protect them against serious Covid-19. The same mRNA technology is now being researched for other diseases, including cancer.
