Lets hear what are your predictions for 2010.

It will be hard to predict something for 2010. The global economy is so instable, the global weather so instable, the global politics so instable...

Maybe a year of non-stability in everything. Looking forward for 2011 Smile

I predict this is the year I start saving for retirement. And, I get a good job. Maybe I start making money selling portraits.

I predict that America will go bankrupt or be very heavily in debt. I also predict that the economy is not going to improve much over the next year, if it does improve it will be only slightly. Smile

I think the economy in 2010 shall grow.
So I think more jobs, which means less workless people Cool

I'm more inclined to think that the 1% wealthy Americans, who most benefitted from the bank bail out package of January last year, will continue to do well, and that the balance of the American people will continue to struggle as they did this year. Unemployment will still be high. There will be lots of confusion and speculation of what to figure out from the more than 2000 medicare reform legislation pages. The Republicans are going to do well with the Congress elections. Obama's ratings are going to continue to drop as people have become used to and no longer impressed by his fancy speeches. The leftists of his own party are also going to become disillusioned as Obama's decisions with regard to war in the Middle East are beginning to look much like what Bush's used to look like. He will still continue to be extra careful with his decisions to the point of delaying action, which is different from Bush, but will probably be irritating to the Generals. Gitmo will start to revisit him as well, as those who had expectations of speedy processing and release of detainees will start to make noises about the delays. So will the people of New York who are determined that the 9/11 bombers be given a military trial and not a civilian trial.

Yeeeeeeeeees ...

I predict a lot more investment in production of films in IMAX ...

More research and better technology we developed to capture the image to view in 3D iMax ... (avoiding the remains of blurred vision that doesn't occur when you focus on the object in question)

More 3D cinemas in other cities, as well as the development of digital sound to the matching of Imax!

That's genious. Reminds me of a South Park episode I watched recently called "The Biggest Douche in the Universe", featuring John Edward.

To answer the question in this thread, I could at least say that I do not predict that the world will end Razz And nor will it in 2012.

I predict that people will keep living and loving just as they do now, science might discover some new technology, mainstream music will fall deeper into the disgusting depth we have now,

Teenage girls will become engulfed deeper into the shitty Twilight vampire and True Blood seasons which forgets the true vampire classics such as Nosferatu.

I will graduate from high school still being the loser i am but to hopefully find my place in university.

Life will go on, we will find ourselves in more turmoil and war will continue on as the human race continues to lose what is true...

Hope you were joking, as I don't see you as a loser at all. I also hope you get a place at University, as that is an experience not to be missed. Which courses are you thinking of taking?

Make sure that you know what you want to do before you go to University. If you don't, maybe it would be better to either take a temporary job first, or join the army, tackle something really hard that can focus and train your mind for you. Doing some physically hard stuff such as joining the army, if you are fit for it, may open up a lot of things in your mind for you and also teach you some discipline that will help you for the rest of your life. If you are forced to go to University, as you think you would never get the opportunity again, and will loose your chance if you did something else, I would go for a degree in IT, as you seem to be gifted and/or interested in this, and hopefully as you are bonding with the courses, you may find something that captivates you and that you would like to specialize in later. Alternatively, a degree in electronic engineering could also create a foundation for developing your way into a specialist field that may interest you. I would imagine you have already consulted with a professional career guidance counsellor, as it could be a good idea to do some specialist career guidance tests, to open up your areas of interest for you as well as surround you with people who can help you find your way?

I'd say it's a bit difficult to forecast for the future. (baring some clearly accurate ancient calendar... kidding Smile) I think one thing I can predict with a fair degree of certainty is that humanity, or at least parts of it, will find itself rising to whole new levels of selfishness. As we always find ourselves doing, we will shake our heads as so-and-so comes on the news about some new thing that they figured out how to do that screwed hundreds if not thousands of people. Basically 2010 will be like every year before it. We will come closer to an inevitable rethinking of our society's structure, or face its deterioration altogether. We can continue to deny that as a race, or we can face the pain and the responsibility and step forward. Personally I think denial is more likely; being that people tend to cling to the past as "better" simply because it's familiar. The future might suck, it might be hard, we might have to live life without rewards and do things for the good of our neighbors. :O The horror! Taking care of each other? Nonsense! Every man for himself!

Thus is my prediction for 2010. It will be every man for himself just as it has been and will be.

That reminds me a lot of my dad, who passed away quite a while ago. He used to say exactly that, it's every person for himself and the devil for the rest. Probably fits in with survival of the species as well, we have to be selfish in order to survive in our species.

I predict that, in 2010:

(Notes in red are added later to compare my predictions with actual evens as they occur - just to see how well I did.)

[creepy trance voice]

US

The economy will hold steady at first, maybe even show some signs of recovery through early summer.

We will have a worse than usual hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico, leading to many damaging storms and a fuel shortage as drilling platforms and refineries along the Gulf Coast are forced to shut down by the storms.

The economy will get worse as fuel prices rise, driving more companies out of business, leading to a higher jobless rate and higher incidence of homelessness.

We will begin to see tent cities popping up on the outskirts of urban centers, and they will be called "Obamavilles" as an homage to the "Hooverville" shanty towns of the 1930's. Crime rates will rise.

The Democrat controlled Congress will continue to try to spend the country's way out of trouble, including billions of dollars for disaster relief following the hurricanes, leading to a further weakening of the US Dollar.

In November the backlash against the rampant spending of the government will lead to a large number of Republicans and Conservative independent and third party candidates being elected, leading to a greater partisan divide in the government and making it much more difficult to pass any sort of meaningful legislation.

December 2010 will see massive anti-government protests.

A terrorist bombing attempt will be made at a shopping mall or sporting event here in the US.

World:

Kim Jong-il will pass away, destabilizing North Korea and raising tensions even further in that part of the world. China will try to intervene with mixed results.

Iran will announce that it has nuclear weapons, then retract the announcement calling it a hoax by anti-government protesters. Iran will move closer to a civil war as government troops kill more protesters, and the protesters become more radical.

An India-Pakistan cricket match will be bombed, killing dozens and injuring hundreds.

A major earthquake in Turkey will bring down a highrise building with a staggering death toll.
(01/12/10 - 7.0 quake devastates Haiti, many buildings collapsed, staggering death toll. Wrong country, wrong continent, wrong hemisphere, but it's still early in the year yet.)
(3/9/10 - a 7.0 quake off Okinawa, an 8.8 in Chile, and yesterday a 6.0 in Turkey. A banner year for earthquakes.)


On the technology front:

An Earth-like planet will be discovered outside our solar system.

3D TV will become the newest fad in visual media, but it will be short lived as people get tired of having to wear glasses to watch their TV sets.

(3/9/10 - 3D TV was big at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, no word yet on consumer trends though.)

Apple will finally release the touchpad computer that has been rumored for so long. It will be a hit at first, but will quickly be eclipsed by an innovative release by a start-up company no-one has ever heard of before that will shoot to the top of the computing technology dog-pile "Google-style".

(3/9/10 - Apple set an April release date for their iPad)

A major breakthrough will be announced that will cure some forms of cancer, but it will involve stem cell based gene therapy and will be very controversial.

There will be a coronal mass ejection late in the year causing brilliant auroras seen as far south as Dallas, Texas. It will cause a major power grid outage in the American Northeast and some parts of Europe, leaving millions of people without power for up to a week.

I have spoken.

Although not sure that things will be better but I still hopefully they should be better!

I would actually argue the opposite. That selfishness is not beneficial to our survival, at least not entirely. (As one can clearly see that some amount of selfishness is required. Taking care of one's self and such.) In general I'd say that our societal structure as a whole is not sustainable because of the levels of selfishness that we see today.

well, all I have to say is that this year has not started very well for me....but I still want to try and feel excited about what can happen...

My Tech predictions :


-Google will get out of china.
-There will be a war between the Smartphone makers (those with downlodable apps) : RIM (Blackberry), Google (Android), Apple (App Store).
-The 3D TV will come out.
-The Apple tablet will come out.


I can't wait to see what the future will be in this domain.
Marcuzzo
the way I see it.
Iran has become a hotspot, so has Pakistan.
I see war, I see recession.
europe has yet to see it's deepest deep.
my heart wishes for peace all over the world and that it all would go better, but my brain says otherwise.
