Hello everyone! I'm Eila Adams and it's great to have you back with us for another round of Naked News! The Naked Nerd with Kat Curtis is JUST around the corner, so stick around for THAT. First up, we're taking a look at the top news items of the day. Here's Angie Heyward with the details.
Eila, Morocco has flipped the switch on the first section of the world's LARGEST concentrated solar power plant! Noor 1 will provide 650 thousand people with energy from dawn until 3 hours past sunset. Morocco’s ultimate plan is to shift from a 97 percent dependency on imported fossil fuels to generating 42 percent of its energy from renewable resources. The remaining two phases are expected to be up and running by 2018.
A 5-man team of amateur British rowers is hoping to BREAK the record for fastest Atlantic crossing! Team Essence set off from Portugal on Sunday and is aiming to make it to Venezuela within the next 52 days. Operating in two man shifts, 2 hours on, 2 hours off, the crew plan to row the entire 33 hundred miles NON-STOP! It sounds crazy but it's all for a good cause - Team Essence hopes to raise upwards of 360 thousand dollars for children's charities.
And a Royal Caribbean cruise ship was forced to cut its journey short after getting caught up in a violent winter storm! The Anthem of the Seas was on a 7-day voyage between New York and Florida when the weather turned just off the coast of North Carolina on Sunday. There were reports of 30-foot waves, damaged furniture and broken glass. The captain ordered everyone to stay in their rooms until the storm passed. Eila, the trip wasn't a TOTAL loss. Passengers said that despite the bad weather they were STILL able to pick up a TV signal for Sunday night's Super Bowl!
Even Mother Nature can't stop the NFL! Thanks Angie, and glad to hear everyone made it out safely. Next on the program, we have the Naked Nerd, Kat Curtis, who's starting things off with a game that can only be played in space! They're all yours, Kat!
Thanks, Eila, and welcome loyal minions! Space: the final frontier. What to do when you're stuck inside a tiny room by yourself when the rules of gravity don't apply? Well, after you're done doing that FIRST thing you thought of - hey, no judgement- you'll need something to while away the other 23 hours and 55 minutes of the day. So this is a good way to go - ping pong with a big droplet of water! Astronaut Scott Kelly videotaped himself playing ping pong with two hydrophobic paddles and a drop of water, and it looks super cool. Take a look. That is going on my list of things to do in space after finding E.T., befriending E.T., and stealing E.T.'s Reese's pieces.
What would happen if Deadpool and Psylocke squared off? Thanks to Olivia Munn's Twitter, I think we have the answer. Munn posted this short video of her going toe to toe with Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds. You know, I think that's actually exactly how that would have played out. Reynolds may have been a terrible Green Lantern, but he IS Deadpool. He's perfect.
Check it out, people are using technology for good! The Phoenix exoskeleton is the best piece of tech I have ever seen, and I'm not just saying that because it's named after my favorite Marvel character. The 40 thousand dollar device straps to the legs of paraplegics and helps them walk again. They can even play soccer! I don't even have a joke for this. It's too heartwarmingly awesome.
Getting tired of the endless Facebook memes and twitter flame wars? Here's a great way to waste time when you're supposed to be working: say hello to Frinkiac, The Simpsons-based quote search engine. Type in any quote from The Simpsons, and Frinkiac will pull up screenshots of every instance it's used. Including my favorite...”It's like I'm wearin' nothing at all! Nothing at all! Nothing at all!
And finally, Disney has filed a patent for flying drone based movie projectors in the sky. Each drone, according to the patent filing, would carry a sort of rear-projection screen made of a porous material that would allow air to pass through, so it didn’t interfere with the drone’s flight. This is like the future version of drive-in theatres. I'm into it, especially now that Disney owns Star Wars. If I can watch episode 8 by staring up at the sky, well, sign me up.
And that's all I've got for you today, nerds. Gonna go finish my latest cosplay project now, bye!
I'm Isabella with the APP-DATE, your guide to what's new and exciting for your mobile device. Let's get started. First up, it's a fun - and ADDICTIVE - game called Save The Line, free on iOS. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to protect your line from hitting all the targets the game throws your way. Simple? Yes, but it definitely tests the reflexes, especially as you progressive through the levels. The ads on the free version are a little annoying, but for an extra 2 bucks you can upgrade to get rid of them. Save The Line scores FOUR out of five Naked Ns with us!
Locating a missing pet has never been easier with the new app, Finding Rover! This essential download for dog lovers uses FACIAL recognition software to search through a database of lost and found pups. If a shelter has YOUR pooch the app will share your contact info to set up a reunion. The best part is it's totally free and available on both iOS and Android and even the web for less-tech inclined pet owners. You'd have to be BARKING mad not to love this one – we're giving it FIVE out of five Naked Ns!
You'll feel like you've stepped into the psychedelic era with the trippy new photo tool, Hyperspektiv! Capture images and videos through 27 different filters designed to warp and twist reality. Try the Betamax setting to get your clips to mimic old-school videotape. Or the Terminator filter to view the world as the classic movie cyborg would. If you like playing amateur photographer – or maybe just amateur HIPPIE, this download will keep you busy! We're giving it THREE out of five Naked Ns!
And now for our FEATURED app! If you suffer from procrastination say hello to your new best friend! Flowstate is designed to motivate users by DELETING your progress if you stop working. Set the timer for up to 180 minutes of productivity. If you STOP typing for longer than 5 seconds during your session, your work is GONE FOREVER. Talk about incentive! Another incentive is that you DO have to fork out for this one – 9.99 for the iOS version or 14.99 for the Mac version. In the right hands, this could be a VERY powerful tool, which is why we're giving it FIVE our of five Naked Ns. With all the apps worth having THIS week, I'm Isabella Rossini. Happy downloading!
One of America's oldest money markets has been sold off to Chinese investors! Chongqing Casein Enterprise Group will reportedly fork out less than a hundred million dollars to acquire the 134-year-old Chicago Stock Exchange.
The Chicago exchange is considered a small player in the money world, handling just point 5 percent of US trading. The purchase is part of the investment group's plan to gain a foothold in the American stock market.
Americans are turning their backs on US citizenship in RECORD numbers! 2015 saw more than 42 hundred people renounce their US citizenship, up 20 percent from the previous year. The huge leap is being partly blamed on 2012 tax law changes. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act requires non-resident US citizens to file tax returns, even if they no longer live within the US.
And finally, a LEOPARD injured at least 6 PEOPLE in Bangalore India on Sunday after it wandered into a local school! The male wildcat is thought to have come from a forested area nearby. Officials spent TEN HOURS trying to capture it, during which time it ATTACKED several people, including a TV cameraman. The leopard was eventually cornered and tranquilized at around 8 o'clock that night and has since been re-homed at a national park.
From the naked newsroom, I'm Angie Heyward.
Pretty scary stuff! Thanks Angie. Coming up next we've got my pal Madison Banes in Entertainment and she's here to tell us about a new petition at Change.org. But this one has NOTHING to do with politics, am I right?
Yes you are. It's all about a documentary, Eila. Have you seen Planet Earth?
I mean, hasn't everybody? It's pretty much the greatest nature series EVER.
Right, and I think everyone agrees David Attenborough was the best narrator out there. But now people are calling for a... let's say less conventional voice to take his place! This is Entertainment! A petition on Change.org has gained tens of thousands of signatures demanding that SNOOP DOGG narrate his own season of Planet Earth! The rapper already has some experience with the role. His "Plizzanet Earth" segments on Jimmy Kimmel Live have become huge hits online. Who wouldn't want more of that? The petition is getting more support each day, and Snoop himself showed support by retweeting a link to it on Twitter. Let's make this happen people!
Pop quiz hotshots: can you recognize the Hollywood starlet in this Snapchat video? So, any guesses? If you said Jennifer Lopez you get a gold star! She's almost unrecognizable in this quick vid taken with boyfriend Casper Smart! The 46-year old went without makeup and revealed a playful side we rarely ever get to see! You can catch her with her makeup ON in her new hit series "Shades of Blue" on NBC!
Busty blonde model Charlotte McKinney is smokin' hot in this month's GQ Mexico! Charlotte taunts and teases in these shots but never quite shows off her greatest assets. Hey, we'll take whatever we can get. This might just be her sauciest shoot to date! What I want to know is why Charlotte has to go all the way to Mexico to take her clothes off. She's welcome to do it here at Naked News anytime!
Clashing with Donald Trump is good for business - at least if you're Megyn Kelly! The Fox News anchor has just signed a MASSIVE book deal with HarperCollins. Rumor has it the contract's worth up to 10 million dollars! Megyn has been quietly shopping a book for some time now, and the Trump controversy at the GOP debate last August only helped boost her popularity - and selling price! The furor led to a bidding war between publishers. The book isn't being called a memoir, but will detail Kelly's many adventures in the news industry.
She kissed a boy and she liked it! Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are Hollywood's newest A-list item. They were spotted canoodling at a bar on the Sunset Strip last week, and sources say they couldn't keep their hands off each other. According to insiders, Katy and Orlando first hooked up at a Golden Globes afterparty last month. But this doesn't look it'll be a quick fling. Over the weekend, the pair attended a children's birthday party at Robert Downey Jr.'s house. Sounds like it's getting pretty serious!
Shining a spotlight on Hollywood in Entertainment, I'm Madison Banes!
I hear Samantha's one on one is AMAZING. I'll be watching it for sure! Okay, up next it's time for our weekly feature From The Vault! Here's an email we got from Terry in Leeds, England! He wrote "Dear Naked News. I'm a recent member thanks to a friend who raves about your program! He told me that one time the whole cast and crew held a party at a nightclub and showed some of the footage to viewers. I'd really love to see that! Is there any chance you could replay it for me?
Welcome to Naked News, Terry! I know JUST the party you and your friend are talking about, and it was a BLAST. It was back in 2012, and we made poor Whitney St. John stay completely sober until she'd finished interviewing everybody! So, without further ado, here's Whitney and the whole gang at Tryst Nightclub at our Naked News party.
Oh my gosh, I'd almost forgotten how much fun that party was. And once the cameras were OFF, it got even wilder! Rumor has it that we're actually planning ANOTHER one, so you'll definitely want to keep an eye out for that. We'll keep you posted!
And if you've got a classic segment you'd like us to show again, be sure to let us know. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact us - and follow us! - on social media. We're on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Thanks, everyone, for watching. We'll see you back here again tomorrow. Take care!
