Animal Planet tonight is showing "Finding Bigfoot"

They are in Washington state, my neck of the woods. I'm in the Bellingham area on the coast.

So anyone interested it's on at:

10:00 PM Eastern

60 min.

"Squatching in a Winter Wonderland"

The team travels to Eastern Washington and the Blue Mountains to meet with professor Jeff Meldrum where he discovered the tracks of a possible bigfoot. With accounts going back for fifty years, the team is optimistic about finding something in the woods.

Ufologist Stanton Friedman Suffers Heart Attack

Monday, June 30, 2014

Breaking news from KGRA Radio tells of a healthwatch for a well-known individual in UFO circles.

American physicist and UFO investigator/author Stanton Friedman suffered a heart attack this weekend [June 28-29, 2014] in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, where he lives.

According to his co-author Kathy Marden, he's in stable condition and is going to be moved to a larger facility on Monday [June 30, 2014], for possible surgery.
We can safely say, Stan won't be attending next weekend's annual Roswell, New Mexico, event.

He's also scheduled to travel to the Philadelphia for the annual MUFON symposium in three short weeks, as he, George Knapp and Lee Speigel are scheduled to be on a panel together.

Lee will be on the first hour of George Knapp's show tonight at:
(1am Eastern) and is expected to comment further on Stanton.

From all of here at the KGRA ask everyone to please keep our good friend in your prayers at this time.

Stanton T. Friedman is a dual citizen of the USA and Canada and lives in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, just across the Maine border from the USA.

Woman miraculously survives being run over by three trains

By Jamie Schram, Dana Sauchelli and Daniel Prendergast
June 29, 2014

Somebody up there must like Mary Downey.

The 22-year-old Bronx woman was run over by three Manhattan subway trains Sunday morning — and walked away with nothing more than a busted shoulder.

Downey, an Irish immigrant living in Woodlawn, miraculously avoided being crushed by the three subway trains after accidentally falling onto the tracks at a Times Square station, then quickly lying in the trough between them, law-enforcement sources said.

“It just wasn’t her time,’’ an amazed source said.

Authorities said Downey’s three-fold brush with death came after she drunkenly staggered into the 49th Street station near Seventh Avenue around 6 a.m. to catch a train home.

As she was waiting on the platform, Downey toppled over and fell onto the tracks — breaking her shoulder — as a northbound N train was approaching.

Unable to lift herself off the rails, Downey apparently managed to position herself between the rails as at least one of the trains barreled over her, police sources said.

At one point, it appeared she may have been able to roll to the scant space between the platform and the tracks, sources said.

“She was lucky enough to have, it looks like to us, rolled to the platform and was in between the platform and the train when the train came into the station,” said FDNY Battalion Chief Mike Meyers.

A source said, “She rolls to a place where she can hide.”

After the first train passed over her, Downey continued to lie helplessly on the track bed of the empty station as yet another train operator unknowingly drove over her, according to police, who said she was conscious through much of the terrifying ordeal.

Downey wasn’t discovered until the third train’s operator spotted what he thought was a piece of trash on the tracks. It was actually Downey’s hand waving for help, sources said.

The subway operator realized there was a person on the tracks and ground the train to a halt — but not before the train’s third car passed over her.

Paramedics were called and removed Downey from under the train, police said. Strapped to a gurney and covered in soot, she was rushed by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital, where she was treated for her busted shoulder.

“She’s doing really well,” said a pal, who refused to identify herself, at the hospital. “She just fractured her shoulder.”

Downey was wheeled out hours later with her arm in a black sling and dressed in a hospital-issued blue T-shirt and gray sweatpants and flanked by a group of friends.

She could be seen wiping tears from her eyes as she was put in a cab and taken to her home in Woodlawn.

Is THIS Bigfoot? Virginia man who claims he first saw the Sasquatch 25 years ago uploads photos of new encounter - and says 'you be the judge'

Jim O'Neal posted images online allegedly from this weekend

A man has claimed he has new pictures of the elusive Bigfoot, taken this weekend on the eastern coast of the U.S.

Randy O'Neal, 40, posted the Sasquatch photographs online, which he says his father took on a camera phone this weekend near the Intracoastal Highway in Virginia.

He also suggests that the video could prove an encounter he had with the beast 25 years previously, which neither he nor his family have ever been able to prove.

Accepting the inevitable scepticism that follows claims of seeing the mythic creature, Mr O'Neal posted a written commentary describing both encounters, then challenges internet users to prove his pictures are faked.

The image shows what appears to be a hunched black figure on a log which juts out into a body of water. The figure seems to have its hands in front of its body, and to be looking out towards the photographer.

Sceptics have suggested it is just a tree trunk.

In his written explanation of the encounter, Mr O'Neal says his father - who is not named - and a family friend referred to as 'Uncle Jap' took the picture on a fishing trip using an aging camera-phone.

He does not definitively identify the creature as a Sasquatch, but says it is 'something that I have never seen or heard before nor again in my life'.

BLACKWATER THREATENS WHITEHOUSE INVESTIGATORS


http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/06/30/us/before-shooting-in-iraq-warning-on-blackwater.html

By the same reporter who the DOJ is trying to prosecute

WASHINGTON — Just weeks before Blackwater guards fatally shot 17 civilians at Baghdad’s Nisour Square in 2007, the State Department began investigating the security contractor’s operations in Iraq. But the inquiry was abandoned after Blackwater’s top manager there issued a threat: “that he could kill” the government’s chief investigator and “no one could or would do anything about it as we were in Iraq,” according to department reports.

American Embassy officials in Baghdad sided with Blackwater rather than the State Department investigators as a dispute over the probe escalated in August 2007, the previously undisclosed documents show. The officials told the investigators that they had disrupted the embassy’s relationship with the security contractor and ordered them to leave the country, according to the reports.

After returning to Washington, the chief investigator wrote a scathing report to State Department officials documenting misconduct by Blackwater employees and warning that lax oversight of the company, which had a contract worth more than $1 billion to protect American diplomats, had created “an environment full of liability and negligence.”

“The management structures in place to manage and monitor our contracts in Iraq have become subservient to the contractors themselves,” the investigator, Jean C. Richter, wrote in an Aug. 31, 2007, memo to State Department officials. “Blackwater contractors saw themselves as above the law,” he said, adding that the “hands off” management resulted in a situation in which “the contractors, instead of Department officials, are in command and in control.”

Energy firms hacked by 'cyber-espionage group Dragonfly'

1 July 2014

More than 1,000 energy companies in North America and Europe have been compromised in a huge malware attack unearthed by US security firm Symantec.

The hackers are thought to be part of an Eastern European collective known as Dragonfly, which has been in operation since at least 2011.

Targets included energy grid operators and industrial equipment providers.

"Its primary goal appears to be espionage," Symantec said.

Sabotage operations

Eighty four countries were affected, although most of the victims were located in the United States, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Turkey, and Poland.

Since 2013 Dragonfly has been targeting organisations that use industrial control systems (ICS) to manage electrical, water, oil, gas and data systems.

Symantec said Dragonfly had accessed computers using a variety of techniques, including attaching malware to third-party programs, emails and websites, giving it "the capability to mount sabotage operations that could have disrupted energy supplies across a number of European countries".

It had used Backdoor.Oldrea to gather system information, including the computers' Outlook address book and a list of files and programs installed, and Trojan.Karagany to upload stolen data, download new files and run them on infected computers, Symantec said.

The attack is similar to the Stuxnet computer worm, which was designed to attack similar industrial controllers in 2010 and reportedly ruined almost 20% of Iran's nuclear power plants.

Symantec said Dragonfly "bears the hallmarks of a state-sponsored operation, displaying a high degree of technical capability".

U.S. firm to build Jetsons-like highway in the sky for Israel

By Crystal Hill
Monday, June 30, 2014



User Image



Cruising to work in a levitating pod 20 feet above city streets might sound like something out of “The Jetsons,” but a California company is building the technology right now in Tel Aviv and thinks it could solve transportation problems in major cities worldwide.

SkyTran Inc. has formed an unlikely partnership with defense giant Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd. to build a prototype of the next-generation mass-transit system at the Israeli company’s headquarters. Tel Aviv has committed to installing a 2.7-mile downtown commercial line that could be completed as soon as 2016 at a cost of about $50 million if the project succeeds.

“Our vision is to change the way people live and travel,” SkyTran CEO Jerry Sanders said.

SkyTran uses magnetic levitation technology to transport lightweight, egg-shaped cars hovering underneath a rail constructed above city streets. A commuter would be able to summon a pod by smartphone to platforms at the tops of staircases roughly every quarter-mile along the line.

A connected side track would allow cars to divert from the main rail line, pick up passengers at platforms and then re-enter the flow of traffic.

The cars are designed to hold two people and travel up to 150 miles an hour, but the average speed of the line planned for Tel Aviv is expected to be about 43 miles per hour. The SkyTran vehicles will rely on a “neural network software system” that will control the flow of traffic and indicate which areas need higher concentrations of cars to satisfy demand.

The transit system, which is touted by its builder as fast, safe, green and economical, will carry up to 12,000 people along a 125-mile line. Each ride will cost about $5.

“We don’t expect to take over the mass-transportation system,” Mr. Sanders said. “But as SkyTran grows and people see its benefits, we think more and more people will stop driving cars and taking trains and will start taking SkyTran, and I think we will decrease the number of cars on the road.”

The project has been underway for almost a decade at SkyTran’s headquarters at the NASA Ames Research Center near Mountain View, California. It is part of a public-private partnership by which NASA offers companies access to its expertise and technology. In this case, designers were looking to “revolutionize public transportation.”

“Everyone knows that the [public transportation] system doesn’t work,” Mr. Sanders said. “The highways we have can no longer accommodate the number of cars on the road.”

Mr. Sanders said he envisioned a solution that would operate above the roads instead of below them like subway systems, which he said are too costly and time-consuming to build. The company points to how quickly and cheaply its lines can be constructed because assembly requires a handful of basic parts and little maintenance.

SkyTran last month announced its partnership with Israel Aerospace Industries — a defense company that is better known for producing drones and missiles. The prototype being built at the company’s headquarters will consist of a 500-yard loop that will allow designers to test and refine their system.

SkyTran initially planned to implement its first commuter line in Mountain View but could not get the local and government support it needed, Mr. Sanders said.

“We got the green light from the mayor of Tel Aviv and have been getting wall-to-wall support from all the government industries, and that made it attractive to build here,” Mr. Sanders said. “It’s truly a very techno-friendly city.”

Pending the success of the SkyTran system in Tel Aviv, SkyTran plans to start building the technology in other places. The company says it is making preliminary plans for routes in France, India and the San Francisco area.

With the approval from the mayor, It was natural for us to start here, but we hope to build a system in California and go from there,” Mr. Sanders said.
