There is one seer whose popularity never wavered despite being dead for centuries. Yep, you guessed it right. Good, old Michel de Nostredame, or Nostradamus as he is more popularly known, has achieved fame for his collections of prophecies. Quite frankly, most of those verses don’t even make sense when read but there must be a reason why his quatrains transcended through centuries.
Nostradamus was a French physician before he delved into the world of the occult.
After correctly predicting the 9/11 attack, Hitler’s ascent to power, and Trump’s triumph in the presidential race, and more, Nostradamus’ predictions must really be something worthy of consideration.
Now, let us see which of his predictions will turn to reality in 2017:
#1. Rising Superpower China
Rising superpower China will take audacious steps to fix the “economic imbalance” that currently exists throughout the world. Nostradamus predicts that such steps will bring about extensive effects.
#2. Cloud computing
Cloud computing, which, simply put, is the practice of “storing and accessing data over the internet instead of a computer’s hard drive,” will no longer be called such. It will be called ‘computing’ because it will be assumed that computers are done in the ‘cloud’ (read: the internet).
#3. Italy’s financial crisis
Italy will fall prey to a financial crisis. Unemployment levels and loans will rise, causing the country to become the “epicenter” of EU’s financial crisis. The banks will fail, and it is only the tip of the iceberg.
#4. Hot wars
Wars, which Nostradamus pegged as ‘Hot Wars’, will occur and will be sparked by global warming and diminishing resources. However, terrorism will remain as the greatest threats in war.
#5. Latin America
Nostradamus predicts that Latin America will be redefined. Governments shall shift away from leftist policies and move towards setting the stage for political unrest.
#6. United States
Superpower sclerosis: The United States, the current world superpower, will run out of control and will become inept in addressing global issues due to political corruption, ideological divisiveness, and increasing inequality.
#7. The Rise of Solar Power
The Rise of Solar Power: Nostradamus foretells that solar energy will account for a significant portion of the global energy resource. This will help business and economies combat the perpetually increasing energy costs and climate change.
#8. Commercial space travel
Commercial space travel will become the real deal. However, matters beyond orbital flights are bound to be extremely challenging. The moon, asteroids, and mining quests all make up unlikely targets.
#9. Ukraine and Russia
Ukraine and Russia will make peace, although the terms of the truce remain unknown. The United States shall oppose the agreement; however, Germany and the rest of Europe shall gladly welcome such development.
Cheetah Population Worldwide Nosedives, Nears Extinction
The race to extinction is something that these wonderful animals shouldn’t be part of.
Cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus), the fastest animals on land, are now facing near-extinction. According to experts, only an estimated 7,100 cheetahs are currently living in the wild.
A study led by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) revealed that the most affected population is that in Asia, with cheetahs in Iran estimated to be less than 50. In Zimbabwe, on the other hand, the population nosedived by 85%, from 1,200 in the year 2000 to only 170 this year.
Experts are lobbying to have the cheetah's status changed from "vulnerable" to "endangered."

These Monochromatic Optical Illusions by Peter Kogler Will Surely Make You Dizzy
These artworks will induce vertigo!
For decades, world-renowned Austrian artist Peter Kogler has successfully transformed typical-looking galleries and museums into warp portals where hallucination and reality seem to converge. Using illusory, monochromatic patterns of distorted lines and pipes and similarly warped sculptures, he expertly transports his audiences to a different dimension where their depth perception is put to the test. The seemingly boundless patterns of alternating convex and concave offer a three-dimensional view of a world that appears to move and shift with every step.
First gaining international attention in the 1980s, the Vienna-based artist is a pioneer of computer-generated art. His works, which focus on architecture, cinema, minimalism and pop art, have been displayed in various galleries, museums, and exhibitions, all of which never fail to captivate.
Kogler's motifs are drawn from the corporal and allegorical realms and then blended into a mixture of unique designs, as can be seen in the patterns that he employs, examples of which include pipes, ants, brain convolutions, and honeycombs....
