DULCE INSTALLATION CONFIRMED BY AIR FORCE COLONEL!!

Researcher Anthony Sanchez reveals his recent contact (January of 2010) with an Air Force Colonel in California.

NEW EVIDENCE ON DULCE
For the first time ever, the official government/military name for the Dulce installation will be disclosed to the public!


Colonel claims there has never been any Thomas E. Castello who had ever worked as security personnel at the Dulce installation.
Neither are there any "Reptilians" in Dulce, he states.
But Colonel X confirms the presence of other "inhabitants" in the installation.

Globe Theatrics
Herbi Dreiner and his students have taken their award-winning particle physics show to Cern, where it went down a storm

I'm sitting in the back of the Globe at CERN, Geneva, while the last of our three performances is on: of course it's in French, oh la la.

These have been harrowing but also very rewarding days. The long drive, and rehearsal all day on Tuesday. Since we bring so much equipment on and off stage during the show every stage and locality are a new challenge. Through all this the students have put on three fantastic performances and all in a foreign language. It is something we will all remember for a while and hopefully the audience took something home as well.

The CERN organisers received us kindly and were very helpful with all the technical issues of getting the show going. They have also filmed the last two shows and hopefully we'll get some good clips out of that.

The show is split into four parts: Atoms & Nuclei, Elementary Particles, Forces & Symmetries, and Cosmology. In each section we explain the basic underlying concepts with many live experiments. Two MCs present the show (Rebecca and Jessica: absolutely great job. Thanks for accepting the French challenge) and the other students perform the experiments (experience, in French), run the cameras, as well as the sound and lighting. It is intended to be fun, but hopefully the audience learned something as well. (I have mainly learned French here!)

The heart of the show are the experiments; some examples: we demonstrate radioactivity with weak alpha, beta and gamma emitters, detected by a Geiger counter connected to a loudspeaker. One can show their difference by their absorptive properties. The alpha rays are effectively stopped by a 10 Swiss Franc bill (indeed, a hard currency). The beta rays are stopped by a thin piece of aluminium, whereas the gamma rays are not even stopped by several plates of lead.

We also show some more exotic particles, such as the muon. It was first discovered in 1937 but is produced in abundance everyday in today's LHC experiments. The muon has similar interactions to an electron, but is about 200 times heavier. However, it also only lives about two millionths of a second, decaying to an electron and two neutrinos. Muons are for example produced when energetic protons from outer space strike our atmosphere. Despite their short lifetime they reach the Earth's surface in great numbers since they fly close to the speed of light. Their apparent lifetime is also extended exactly because they fly so close to the speed of light. This is the theory of special relativity in action.

We have constructed a muon detector using a standard thermos, based on an idea from Mainz University. The thermos is filled with water. On the top opening of the thermos we have screwed a photomultiplier tube. This is a sensitive detector which converts weak light pulses into an electronic signal. When the very fast muons from the cosmic rays traverse the water in the thermos (they easily go through the thermos wall) they produce a distinctive bluish light, called Cerenkov radiation. The light reflects off the internal walls of the thermos to the photomultiplier tube. The resulting electronic signal is connected to a strobe light which records each muon with a flash, visible in the dark auditorium. This is accompanied by some cool electronic music.

We also demonstrate antimatter on stage. But my favorite is our home made accelerator which shoots a wooden projectile at a quark target. Quark is a German type of fresh cheese, it comes in six flavours, some of which taste pretty strange. This is a truly bang and splash type of experiment, which the kids always love. The collision is recorded by a detector and we have a culinary read-out of the data.

The two morning shows were attended by French and Swiss school kids. Yesterday's evening show was open for the general public and was packed. We were very honoured that Rolf Heuer, the director of CERN, and his wife showed up and both seemed to enjoy it a lot. If you think you might like it, you should invite us to Britain. We would love to come!

Comcast.net Hijackers Sentenced to 18 Months
By Kevin Poulsen September 24, 2010 | 6:44 pm | Categories: Hacks and Cracks Two former members of the hacker gang Kryogeniks were hit with 18-month prison sentences Friday for a 2008 stunt that replaced Comcast’s homepage with a shout-out to other hackers.

Twenty-year-old Christopher Allen Lewis, aka EBK, of Newark, Delaware, and 28-year-old Michael Paul Nebel, aka Slacker, 28, of Kalamazoo, Michigan, were also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $89,578.13, and to serve three years under court supervision following their release, in a hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Robert F. Kelly in Philadelphia.

A third hacker, James Robert Black Jr., 21, aka Defiant, was sentenced in August to four months for his role in the prank, receiving consideration for helping the FBI build cases against his co-defendants and other computer intruders.

The three men hijacked Comcast’s domain name in May of 2008 — a prank that took down the cable giant’s homepage and webmail service for more than five hours, and allegedly cost the company more than $128,000. Visitors to Comcast.net had been redirected to a simple page reading, “KRYOGENIKS EBK and DEFIANT RoXed COMCAST sHouTz To VIRUS Warlock elul21 coll1er seven.”

As described in the indictment http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/threatlevel/2009/11/comcast_indictment.pdf in the case, the pranksters got control of the Comcast.net domain with two phone calls and an e-mail sent to the company’s domain registrar, Network Solutions, from a hacked Comcast e-mail account.

That gave them entry to the Network Solutions control panel for Comcast’s 200 domains.

In an interview the day after the attack, Black and Lewis, who then identified themselves as Defiant and EBK, told Threat Level that they didn’t initially set out to redirect the site’s traffic. Instead, they merely changed the contact information for the Comcast.net domain to Black’s e-mail address. For the street address, they used the “Dildo Room” at “69 Dick Tard Lane.”

Then, the hackers said, they contacted Comcast’s original technical contact at his home number to tell him what they’d done. It was only when the Comcast manager scoffed at their claim and hung up on them, that Lewis decided to take the more drastic measure of redirecting the site’s traffic to servers under the hackers’ control.

“I was trying to say we shouldn’t do this the whole damn time,” said Black at the time.

“But once we were in,” added Lewis, “it was, like, fuck it.”

In the 2008 interview , the hackers expressed some shock over the attention the attack garnered.

“The situation has kind of blown up here, a lot bigger than I thought it would,” said Black at the time. “I wish I was a minor right now, because this is going to be really bad.”

The two men were ordered to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on Oct. 25.

They could have done worse. The probation office had recommended 41 to 51 months in prison for Lewis and 37 to 46 months for Nebel, based on federal sentencing guidelines and Comcast’s assessment of its costs in recovering its domain name.

Mars Dust-Devil Mystery Solved on Earth
By Lisa Grossman September 24, 2010 | 4:28 pm | Categories: Earth Science, Space

Bright sand streaks can form in the wake of desert cyclones when the whirlwinds break up popcorn-ball-like clumps of sand, a new study shows. The first-ever sighting of bright, instead of dark, dust-devil tracks on Earth could help decipher how these funny features form on Mars.

“This is the first observation and analysis of bright dust-devil tracks on Earth,” said geologist Dennis Reiss of Westfälische Wilhelms Universität Münster in Germany, who led the new study. “They are known from Mars, but their formation mechanism is unknown.”

Scientists have spotted dust-devil tracks in satellite images of both Earth and Mars, and the Mars rovers Spirit and Opportunity have even seen the dusty cyclones whipping past.

Most of these streaks are darker than the surrounding sand. The coarser the grains of sand are, the darker they appear. When dust devils swish by, they clear their paths of smaller grains, leaving dark tracks like eerie, swirly tattoos. But occasionally, cameras orbiting Mars have caught glimpses of bright streaks on dark sand.

“They have posed a problem,” said planetary scientist Ronald Greeley of Arizona State University, who has researched how dark dust-devil trails form on Mars. “How would that mechanism” — blowing small grains aside — “work with the bright streaks? That’s been the puzzle.”

Reiss and colleagues may have found an answer in the Turpan desert in northwestern China. The crew went there to hunt for dark dust-devil tracks on the ground. Until their field study, such tracks had been seen only from orbit. They found several of the dark tracks and published an “up close and personal” analysis in the July 28 Geophysical Research Letters.

But on April 18, the team saw several active dust devils leaving surprisingly bright tracks. “It was good luck,” Reiss said.

When they looked closer, the researchers realized the streaks weren’t actually any brighter than usual — they were filled with the same coarse, millimeter-size sand that dust devils normally suck clean. But the surrounding sand had been darkened by five minutes of rainfall the previous night.

The rain had cemented bits of sand, silt and clay into clumps up to a centimeter wide. When the dust devils came through, they destroyed the fragile clusters, revealing the finer sand grains below. The dust devil tracks appeared bright in contrast to the rain-darkened background. The results will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Icarus.

While there is obviously no rain on Mars, landers and rovers have observed similar clumps that are held together by electrostatic forces. In 1979, Greeley conducted lab experiments showing that charges build up on dry, wind-blown sand particles in a similar manner to the way charge builds up on a balloon when you rub it on your hair. Just like the charged-up balloon can stick to the wall, charged sand grains pull together to form delicate, “popcorn ball” aggregates.

“The destruction of aggregates on Mars would lead also to bright dust devil tracks,” Reiss said.

Greeley thinks the idea makes sense. “This is a plausible model for the formation of the bright tracks on Mars,” he said. “This is a very nice study, a very nice result.”

Big Bang Theory’ conquers Thursday comedies; ‘My Generation’ flops
by James Hibberd | September 24, 2010 at 8:11 am

The results of the most eagerly anticipated ratings match-up are in: The premiere of CBS' "Big Bang Theory" made a dramatic ratings splash in its new time period last night.

"Big Bang" delivered 14 million viewers and a 4.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating, that's actually up a tenth of a point from its cozy position in CBS' Monday comedy block last year.

NBC's rival "Community" (5 million, 2.2) fell 42% from last year's debut. But don't go blaming "Big Bang" just yet. Last year, "Community" aired at 9:30 p.m. and benefited from an "Office" lead-in. Last night's "Community" is on par with the show's usual 8 p.m. performance last season, and improved upon last fall's "Saturday Night Live" special in the time period.

"Big Bang" led into the debut of CBS' "$#*! My Dad Says" (12.5 million, 3.9), which retained an impressive percentage of its "Big Bang" lead-in. "$#*!" trounced NBC's "30 Rock" (5.8 million, 2.6), which was down 13% from last year ("30 Rock" was also launched at 9:30 p.m. with an "Office" lead-in).

The move gives CBS its much-desired comedy beachhead on Thursday nights -- provided the critically panned "$#*!" can maintain half of the bargain in the weeks to come.

"The Office" (8.4 million, 4.3) improved slightly for NBC, which then introduced "Outsourced" (7.4 million, 3.5). The India-set comedy was down 8% from "Community" in the time period. The comedy block fed into the second week of "The Apprentice" (3.8 million, 1.4), which declined a tenth. Can't see "Apprentice" staying in this time period for long with these numbers.

Overall, CBS won the night despite the premieres of procedurals "CSI" (14.6 million, 3.4) and "The Mentalist" (15.3 million, 3.3) slouching, the former down 17% and the latter falling 8%.

ABC placed second, with the meager series premiere of documentary-style soap "My Generation" (5.2 million, 1.6) merely tying The CW at 8 p.m. for last place in the hour. "My Gen" was also down 60% from the debut of "FlashForward" in the time period.

ABC's other soaps also posted losses. "Grey's Anatomy" (14 million, 5.3) fell 21% and "Private Practice" (9 million, 3.3) dropped 28%. Nonetheless, "Grey's" ranked as the evening's top-rated show.

In fourth, Fox's premieres for "Bones" (9.8 million, 2.7) and "Fringe" (5.8 million, 2.1) felt the heat. "Bones" was down 13%; "Fringe" was off 30%, though Fox premiered the show a week earlier last year.

The CW's "Vampire Diaries" (3.6 million, 1.6) actually flourished despite the added competition, up 14%. But while its lead-in climbed, "Nikita" (3.2 million, 1.1) slipped.

Recent UFO Sightings / Reports / Updates

Sam from New Zealand recently posted the following at his site and reported to MUFON. This UFO photo was captured on 24 Sept 2010, 3:19:04 PM locaql time - shutter speed of 1/1000 of a second. The black and red color object looks similar to the black triangle UFO that visited him many times.

**********

Strange Lights Over Tucson, AZ

KOLD - Our newsroom received calls all night about strange lights in the sky on the southwest side. Was it a UFO over Tucson?

Many people describe them as a 3-5 lights in a triangle shape.

Here's some what people are saying on our Facebook page:

* Armando says, "It's not a plane. Five lights stood still then two lights disappeared and came back to a perfect straight line. Then it disappeared."
* Crystal wrote, "I was freaked out at first too, all my kids gasped. It had us talking about aliens the rest of the way home."
* Angelique said, "What I saw was a plane. It was huge. I saw it three times and it was round and on its side with lights all around it."

KOLD called people all over the place trying to get answers, from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base to the Arizona Department of Public Safety.

One spokesman from the Air Guard said that they are performing night flights this week.

Witnesses that talked with KOLD's Dan Marries on the phone insisted the lights they saw were not coming from a plane.

One woman even said the traffic and street lights flickered as it flew overhead. Another said she had to re-set her satellite television after it flew past her house.
