Oh look! A UFO article that doesn't belittle those who witness them. What mainstream outlet would be so objective? Canadian. Gotcha.

UFO sightings in Canada in 2012 doubled previous record
Nearly 2,000 UFOs reported, with 7.5% unexplained
CBC News Posted: May 15, 2013 4:54 PM AT

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/story/2013/05/15/ns-ufo-sightings-double.html

More Canadians say they are seeing unidentified flying objects than ever before, with 2012 numbers nearly doubling the record number of sightings recorded in previous years.

In 2012, there were 1,981 sightings, nearly doubling the previous annual record of 1,004 sightings recorded in 2008. There were record numbers of UFOs reported in every province last year except for Saskatchewan and P.E.I.

Chris Rutkowski, a civilian science writer who has produced the Canadian UFO survey since 1989, has just finished compiling all of 2012 reports.

“It’s something across the board,” said Rutkowski. “People in Canada were actually looking up into the sky more than in previous years.”

The objects people witness come in a variety of forms — from triangles and balls of fire, to the more traditionally ovoid-shaped flying saucers, hovering in the sky.

Adam Canning, 10, of Lake Charlotte, N.S., is one of the many hundreds of Canadians who are reporting UFOs.

He said the UFO he witnessed with a friend earlier this year looked like an orb.

“I could see it in the distance for about a minute and then like boom, it went really fast,” said Adam, standing on a hill near his house, pointing at the sky.

“I heard this, beep, beep, beep. I knew something was in the sky. I looked up and there was a big thing. Big, round, like a big hotel or something. I looked at my buddy and I’m like, ‘That has to be a UFO.’ There’s normally helicopters flying over our house but that was way bigger than a helicopter, so I knew it wasn’t a helicopter,” he said.

The majority of 2012’s sightings were gathered by civilian organizations, after various federal agencies decided to give up tracking and investigating UFO reports, according to documents obtained under the Access to Information Act earlier this year. Those organizations then pass their information on to Rutkowski.

He said that may be part of the reason for the more that double the number of reports in 2012.

“It is very easy to report online, anonymously, without any worry about judgment or retribution, so I think it is very likely people will be reporting things more often to civilian organizations,” he said.

Kathleen Canning, Adam’s mother, said she is convinced her son is telling the truth about what he saw that night last January.

“Even before this sighting, I think for us to think we are the only ones in this vast universe is a bit naive, perhaps,” said Canning.

Adam drew a picture of what he saw that evening. Rutkowski said it is one of the rare times a UFO cannot be explained.

“Only about 7.5 per cent of the cases last year ended up being unexplained. Oddly enough, only about 15 per cent were completely explained, so it's really a matter of intense investigation. There's a lot of work that needs to be done before we can put reports like this into bed,” said Rutkowski.

“Since we don’t have the proof or evidence to suggest that aliens are behind the UFO phenomenon, what exactly is driving the UFO phenomenon? Why do people report seeing UFOs? That’s one of the reasons we put together this study is to ask these questions and suggest that maybe there’s some worthwhile information in there that needs rooting out.”

Adam’s sighting will be counted in the 2013 survey, expected to be completed next year.

Some of the most interesting cases from 2012:
Jan. 1: 9:30 p.m.

Cornwall, P.E.I. — Two witnesses watched a triangular black craft with pink lights on its wingtips pass overhead slowly and silently. When it was directly overhead, the object’s underside looked like a large bright ball of white light. It flew around the town in an arc, reversed course and eventually flew off to the north over the treetops. The sighting lasted about five minutes.

Feb. 25: 5 p.m.

Elmira, Ont. — Two witnesses saw two dark objects “shaped like guitar picks” moving silently overhead at an estimated 61 metres high, heading east.

May 11: 12:37 a.m.

Courtenay, B.C. — A large square object with more than 30 multicoloured lights hovered over the ocean, moved from side to side and then in an arc. It was described as a “giant lit up billboard floating in the sky.” It made “rounds” for 10 minutes before vanished from sight.

July 7: 11:30 p.m.

Saint John, N.B. — An object like a bright “neon green hexagon” suddenly appeared only six metres away from a witness. It remained motionless and silent, appeared to split in two sections then reformed. When the witness went to get someone else to see it, it vanished.

Aug. 3: 9:30 p.m.

Shoal Harbour, N.L. — Four people saw a disc-shaped, glowing orange object flying west to east across the sky, then stop suddenly in mid-flight. After about 10 seconds, it resumed its flight and went out of sight.

Nov. 18: 12:15 p.m.

Brossard, Que. — Three witnesses observed an object “twirling” above a field in an industrial area. After watching it for three minutes, one filmed it with his iPhone as it moved away towards the west.


There's a video and a child's drawing as well from the link, if you'd like to see a little more.

UFO: New Jersey witness reports mass abduction
DATE: 03 JUNE 2013
POSTED BY (Tanveer Masood): EDITED BY RAYMOND

http://www.agoracosmopolitan.com/news/ufo_extraterrestrials/2013/06/03/6099.html

A witness in New Jersey has suggested that mass abduction by manipulative extraterrestrials have been occurring in the region. The witness talks about possible communication with alien beings on 20 May, 2013 at 12:00 AM. This report has been obtained from a testimony included in the database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), published on 22 May, 2013.

The witness tells us that he has always been sceptical about aliens and then he describes what he saw.

“I’ve always been a skeptic of aliens and UFOs, up until two nights ago, and I feel lost and confused, that’s why I am here. I would like to start off by telling you that about 3 weeks ago I saw an unidentified flying object that looked like a fireball in the sky.”

The witness describes how he was abducted by aliens and found himself tied in a metal bed.

“Two nights ago as I was about to go to sleep I saw something in my room through my peripheral vision. I don’t remember going to sleep, but I do remember waking up in a metal room and I was lying on a metal bed and I was restrained.”

The witness describes how he found that many other people, along with his sister, were also lying unconsciousness on metal beds.

‘ I struggled to turn my head and I saw many people lying in these metal beds just like mine and I focused on one in particular which I realized was my sister, it seemed that everyone was in some state of unconsciousness.”

The witness describes his reaction to the situation.

“At that point I realized that something was very wrong and I was conscious of the scary situation I was in. I started to panic and tried to free myself.”

The witness talks about being surrounded by aliens.

“At that point I realized that I was surrounded by short beings, they were grayish in color and seemed oblivious to the fact that I was trying to fight my way out of the restraints.”

He describes how another, taller being, appeared out of nowhere.

“Suddenly out of nowhere came a bright light and another being appeared, this one was taller and had a more oval shaped head with indentations in it and it was almost tan in color.”

The witness further describes how this alien communicated with him and told him about how they were looking into our DNA.

‘It communicated with me telepathically and I asked it what it was doing to us and it said "We are looking at your DNA." I asked it why it was doing this to us and it replied "All humans have alien DNA, but not all humans have the same alien DNA.”

The alien informed the witness that they come from Sirius.

“I asked it where they were from and it said "We come from Sirius" and it also told me that they have been coming to me for a long time.”

The witness finally tells us that the alien disappeared and he found himself in his bed.

”At that point it disappeared and my fear returned and I started screaming from the top of my lungs, the next thing I remember is jumping up from my bed screaming waking up everyone in the house. I haven’t slept for 2 nights now.....”
Dr. John Lash's research on ancient Pagan Gnostics insights linked lower dimensional entities called "Archons" to alien abductions.


Hmmm. I don't even know how I found this. What kind of paper is The Canadian? From their about page, it's an independent, non-profit leftist paper. It's crazy - they include a youtube video straight in the story about proposing editorial submissions.

Well, in any case, this fella's prolific:
http://www.agoracosmopolitan.com/user/tanveer1986

And what's the crack about archons at the end? Is this a news piece? Does The Canadian want to consider itself news? A guy located in India found a MUFON case, and reported it verbatim to a Canadian online rag and added his two cents at the end about archons. Due diligence? Meh. MEH! How about I get myself published and paid by everyday digging out a different MUFON or NUFORC case and writing about it. Yay! UFOs!

Amazingly similar to Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs reports from 20 years ago, of course since they used their own voodoo flavored hypnosis we can discard everything they exposed, but since this guy recalls things without hypnosis, I'm sure he is telling the truth..!

nice find...!

welcome to drunk reasoner (misnomer).

i am breaking the rules of my own online space, to let you know that whiskey and beer sure do make for a good time... until you have to wait in the parking lot for sobriety to hopefully overtake you. to have your eyeballs swim in your head (not sober enough evidently).

i am full of piss and vinegar and piss. and the spins. i am nothing if not uncalled for inappropriate honesty. too bad i'm not in charge of something super secret. i'd gladly spill the bans right now. tomorrow, i willl have a headache that rivals anything from scanners. hate is the word.

edit: i drank with a hell's angel motorcycle club member that night. i think i was a bit excited about that. but i was also drunk enough to forget that point. rule number one: don't drink and drive. rule number two: don't drink and dial. rule number three: don't drink and post. i may have to check my phone messages :/

I didn't know where else to put this, so I thought I'd put it in the blog/opinion section of UFOCB...

I've had quite enough of Scott C. Waring and his ufosightingsdaily.com.

For some bizarre reason, 70% of the recent news aggregations pertaining to UFO tidbits is an author interviewing Waring. This guy is so credulous, his face is likely soon to be found on the new Kool Aid man mascot.

I saw some recent threads referencing pareidolia, and the examples seem to be things pretty much lifted out of ufosightingsdaily. He reminds me of the near cold believer-skeptic wars that we had on the board (in waves, seemingly many moons ago). I have no problem with belief... just I suppose inflexibility, assumptiveness, and opportunism.

This guy is a media workhorse, I'll give him that. But is he doing it because he's such an ardent believer? Or is he just another click-bait shill?

One thing's for certain, if I see any article with his byline, I hit the browser's back button.

Some new "UFO" news...

This comes with a youtube video attached from within the article, but I won't be reposting that. Let me dump the article here, then pontificate ad nauseum.

Swirling ‘UFO Gateway’ Appears Over Large Hadron Collider In Bizarre Video
Rob Waugh's Yahoo Blog: January 8, 2016

http://news.yahoo.com/swirling-ufo-gateway-appears-over-large-hadron-111405390.html

An swirling ‘dimensional gateway’ opens up over the Large Hadron Collider - and a glowing orb flies into it, in a video hailed as proof aliens are visiting Earth.

The video was posted on YouTube by Section 51 - a UFO fan channel.

Section 51 claims that the bizarre film was captured by American tourists - and warns that the dimensional gateway could summon ‘interdimensional beings with a taste for human flesh’.

Many YouTube commenters suggest that the video could actually be CGI - and it’s worth noting that Section 51 also has a video of Santa Claus flying over New York in a sleigh.

Section 51 says, ‘More people have become more aware of the CERN project aggressive ambitions to explore the unknown ‘dark universe” many have pointed to signs that have people troubled if not terrified by the parade of symbolism used at the CERN facility itself.

‘At CERN headquarters a symbol of Shiva, the (Hindu God of Destruction) dancing the cosmic dance of death and destruction can be clearly seen at the CERN facility. Is this a Symbolic declaration of CERN’s ultimate intention to bring on a new age of destruction to this planet?


And that's it. I found that on Yahoo's front page, typos and all. The "article" included a provocative picture of a swirling cloud and a youtube video (posted twice).

So it would seem that Yahoo News, besides seeding its articles with sponsored advertisements-as-news, also allows bloggers to post news stories. Matter of fact, if you click the link and look at the actual page, you'll note that there is no accreditation in written form. And the date simply said "7 hours ago" with an image next to it (it turns out that's the link to said author's blog, hosted by Yahoo).

It's been stated in various threads here, Section 51 is yet another hoax UFO youtube team in the same vein as SecureTeam10. What a sweet deal to have an online news portal reposting your youtube links so you can generate a large number of page visitors and profit handsomely from it.

This is journalism, people! This is where the World Wide Web has brought us - to a time and place where hoaxes uncritically stand next to regular news stories. What is truth? There are too many facts presented freely. Too many stories and opinions that run into conflict with one another. If a lie is repeated often enough, does it one day stop being a lie?

One thing's for sure, and maybe I had missed the boat on this one: Yahoo is no longer a valid news portal. News aggregators are a risky business, that's for sure.

In August of 2014 when I created the original Secureteam 10 Speedebunking episode, it was an attempt to prevent a laughably simplistic hoax channel from becoming a huge waste of time. However, with the help of some high profile web sites trying to ride the Fake Train to Viraltown, it has become exactly that.

While Tyler Glockner doesn’t have technical chops, he seemed to put a lot of work into window dressing: titles, logos, little audio effects, a gear store. In fact, the stylistic effort probably took more time than the videos themselves, poorly Photoshopping UFOs into backgrounds or simply fading them into view in a video. It seems Tyler’s style appealed to worst-of-the-worst tabloid “journalist” Jon Austin of the Express UK, who decided to become an honorary member of the Secureteam. This, along with the hoax channel’s burgeoning subscriber numbers, warranted a more robust response. Hope you enjoy and share.

UFO Theater in The New York Times, courtesy of YouTube
Posted on November 20, 2015 7:05 am avatarConstantine 4 Comments

November 19, 2015: Today’s New York Times tech policy column featured an article on YouTube’s new Fair Use Initiative which seeks to defend creators from unwarranted copyright infringement complaints. All the attention has been rather strange, but a good kind of strange.

It all started back in September 2014 (see Copyright Theater) when I received a copyright notice initiated by Secureteam 10. Then immediately after two more were registered by LookNowTV, who I had embarrassed in both the first two episodes. Until these were resolved my channel was taken offline, and UFO Theater temporarily moved to Vimeo. While on Vimeo I posted Speedebunking: Mister UFO/Mister Enigma, which led to this exchange with the hoaxer himself, Robert Simmons of La Crosse, Wisconsin. He had the video temporarily removed from Vimeo. When UFO Theater was up and running on YouTube again he tried the same nuisance tactic there in November 2014. Neither of us had any idea what he would set in motion.

It wasn’t until June of 2015 that I was contacted by YouTube (I’m sure their inaction on Simmons’ complaint was driving him mad), explaining that they had received the notice from Mister Enigma but “selected one of your videos as a candidate for a new effort that protects some of the very best examples of ‘fair use‘ from copyright takedown requests.” I assumed this meant I would be one of perhaps a few dozen creators chosen. I was absolutely shocked when I discovered I was one of only four in the entirety of YouTube. I imagine the odds are something akin to winning the lottery. I’ve probably not received a tenth of the copyright grief and harassment endured by the other three producers, but there I am, the only one quoted in the article, and a big ol’ flattering screen capture. Maybe I’m the only one Ms. Kang could reach for the story.

After seeing UFO hoaxes go viral week after week when they’re promoted by British tabloids, particularly the Express, it’s nice to get some notice for UFO Theater’s perspective. More episodes coming soon.

Wonder no longer. This comment from “SuperSurprise,” a Thirdphaseofmoon fan, recently appeared on the Hoaxplosion! YouTube page. Before you attempt to read, it may help to temporarily abandon everything you hold dear about spelling, punctuation, paragraphs, and reason. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

“[UFO Theater is] delusional. Only 851 subs in a channel over 1 1/2 year old ch=Epic failure. Ouch! This guy is very jealous. Period. Fact or Fake, there is about 500-5000 popular of supernatural channels on utube. If every jealous nobody like him decided to launch false flags out of pure jealousy, the false flagger would lose his/her utube ch. Not only that, he know’s nothing about how youtub really works. Those big channels he’s soooo jealous of happen to have an appointed utube account manager. This means, a real person at the real utube helping them 1 on 1 when they need it. This must burn him up more. It’s a fact, Youtube works with these people when some jealous bitter person comes along and tries to launch an attack on the popular utube channel.It happens often enough.The false attacks can even come in false DMCA attacks on their content. CHannels like 3potm last for a reason. They are great entertianment love then or hate them. Utube is all about entertianment. Sorry mainstream do not find debunking videos entertianing.Do some research. Youtube backs these channels.There would be no utube if jealous bitter failures(There is a ton look at the comments here) came along and tried to get populer channels and trending viral viral vids pulled.It happens 24/7. So many jealous bums out there crying. The have nots like him are very bitter about it.This is just a jealous man talking to his peers of other jealous ufo nuts with failed utube channelsand failed dreams. He is telling people to flag videos for what he does not like on utube. If 1 user flags 3pom videos enough because they are so called fakes to him/her, the user filing the false flags over and over will in fact get his/her utube account terminated for false flagging. Yes, youtube will see the flagging as a false flag for many reasons.It’s entertianment. Get a grip, it’s utube! These channels also have videos in worldwide media which means they have media deals too. Sorry 2 burst your bubble guys. No one important cares accept a handful of ufo nuts with failed utube channels.BTW, for a conpiracy theory. I have no affiliation with these channels. I just watch and call it like i see it.The only thing he really blew up is his own jealous feelings.I feel bad for the guy. He’s angry about it. You can hear it in his voice. He’s another commercial 4 these big ufo channels. They’ll only grow and become larger with all the free promotion they get from the 100’s of little guys channels being jealous about them on loads of little man utube channels crying and serving as a commercial for them…That’s my rant. Here’s a box of tissues!”

See, folks? UFOlogy has nothing to do with UFOs. It’s “entertianment”!

You’re just jealous.

In addition to debunking, this details a bit of the process for discovering the source of a video, and some interesting things you can find along the way. This hoax happened to pop up at the right time for me to be able to respond quickly. The fact that it was picked up by a few news sites is part of a sad trend: us UFO freaks are not really taken seriously for the subject we’re interested in, yet we’re seen as a target market and a way to draw more attention. Web sites have picked up on the fact that we’ll watch just about anything UFO-related on a larger news site because the association with the larger entity, makes it seem legit. Unfortunately these sites have chosen the absolute worst material to put on display, hoaxes from Secureteam 10, Third Phase of Moon and Mister Enigma.

There really is no excuse or purpose to this except to generate traffic.

I thought I'd supply a different kind of link for this post, one about using caution and critical analysis when examining evidence found on the web. The link is a very basic primer on thinking about the presentation of evidence provided from a web page or web site:
http://www.media-awareness.ca/english/resources/special_initiatives/wa_resources/wa_shared/tipsheets/deconstructing_webpages.cfm

It uses that familiar exercise of prompting the reader to think "Who/What/When/Where/Why".

That's it. Nothing too fancy. But how many times do posters either link to evidence that wouldn't pass our basic 5Ws test or accept what someone else has posted as evidence to be truth without following up themselves? I might really value the opinions of most of the posters and webizens of this site, but I'm still going to review what they say and the links they provide, mulling it over myself before I accept it into my own world view.

I might agree with a poster 19 times out of 20, but on that 20th time, I may think they've missed the boat on an issue or think they've used some faulty logic in their post. Maybe I'll attempt to rebut it, even though I hold my fellow Casebook user in high esteem. Debate is not a mean-spirited or divisive tool meant to tear down other people (when done on-topic and with as little inflammatory rhetoric as possible). I might not understand something, or maybe they posted a bad link, or maybe I'm right and through debate, I give them pause.

We view skepticism as being denial. It is NOT the same thing. It is the same mistake that creationists and intelligent design believers attribute to "science" - that science is just an alternate belief system. It is NOT. It is a tool, a methodology. Always be healthily skeptical! Kick the evidence around... look for the illusion or trick first, and if the evidence passes that test, your enquiry might help strengthen your belief of a thing. As well, talking about how you applied tests to your possible convictions may be far more persuasive than simply asserting some thing to be.

No?

Well. In other news, there is no news, at least as I've seen in mainstream media. I wonder, why this dearth of news? Have false reports been quietly examined and taken down ignomiously? Or has there been some sort of strengthening of "secure channels"? Where late last year there was a spate of sightings mentioned in mainstream news, now there is nothing. It could be the novelty wore off, or it could be a sign of the intellectual incuriosity of MSM that fails to follow up. Or do you think something more sinister could explain it?

Enough of my non-evidentiary musings. Future input will be strictly on reporting once more.

It was already an old link, and it looks like IT'S DEAD, JIM. I usually put the content from the link here, and I'm disappointed I hadn't for this particular article. It was probably long. I'll see if I can find a cached version or something.

http://mediasmarts.ca/lessonplan/deconstructing-web-pages-lesson

same website, but different URL. Interestingly, it's a freshman high school level Internet Use lesson. I can see that it's different than what I had originally linked to. They put the old lesson into an adobe document. If you don't have Adobe Reader, this will have little value for you.

I would suggest reading it over. Most of you will find it perhaps simplistic, but how often do we read articles where we might already have a pre-conceived bias, and because of that ignore the steps listed for analyzing the criteria within?
