Peering into the crystal ball
Anybody can look back on 2006 and wax wise with 20/20 hindsight. It's trickier to look into the future and get it right. We've been asking you to play psychic and send
your predictions
for the coming year. So, it's only fair we share our own.

Meryl Page puts on her mystic diva's hat and sees a rough road for actor Ben Affleck, some indiscretion of his will be revealed.

Karen Waygood predicts Paris Hilton will grow weary of her name and change it to London Sheraton.

Our peerless leader, Tyson Wheatley, foresees Barry Bonds signing with the New York Yankees and falling one home run short of passing Hank Aaron as the all-time HR champion. (By the way, Tyson is fearless also).

Rich Cook channels his inner Donald Trump for this business prognostication: Netflix will put both Blockbuster and Hollywood Video out of business.

Nicole Saidi is the bearer of bad news, saying the U.S. will see another major E. coli outbreak, only this time it will be something people really like, such as chocolate.

My crystal ball tells me former American Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson will win a supporting actress Oscar for her role as Effie in Dreamgirls. I'm certain Masi Oka will earn an Emmy for his fabulous portrayal of Hiro Nakamura on the series Heroes. And just in case I'm wrong, let me say, in advance, the crystal is slightly cracked.

not a "prediction" but a PROPOSAL (about space and science) for this year: SAVE the Hubble moving it near the ISS

Hubble has given us INCREDIBLE scientific results and AMAZING images of the universe... but now it has a few years of life!
Next year NASA will launch the LAST (very expensive and very risky!) mission to service/upgrade the Hubble so it can survive (about) 5 years.
My suggestion is to move Hubble near the ISS (using a few unmanned Progress or ATV) so it will be repaired/upgraded MANY TIMES with (future) NEW technologies and live/work 20+ years!

I'm so glad CNN put a link to this blog on AC360's blog. I had no idea this blog was even here and by the looks of the lack of comments I'm not the only one.
I predict that "The Apprentice" will be cancelled mid-season despite 'The Donald's' billions and billions!
