Chris Norman: British hero who stopped French terrorist on train said 'OK, I’m probably going to die anyway so let's go'

A British grandfather who emerged as the unlikely hero of a foiled gun attack has described the moment he chose to "get angry and do something".

IT consultant Chris Norman, 62, helped two off-duty US servicemen and their friend overpower suspected terrorist Ayoub El-Khazzani after he burst into a packed train carriage armed with an AK47, pistol and boxcutter.

Airman Spencer Stone, who was first to jump on the gunman, and National Guard specialist Alek Skarlatos were trained to deal with lethal situations and college student Anthony Sadler, who piled in with Mr Norman afterwards, was perhaps reinforced by the bravery of youth.

But Mr Norman, who looked slightly embarrassed as he held up a bravery medal from the mayor of the French town of Arras, where the drama unfolded, blood stains still visible on his shirt, drew on different reserves.

"The Wind Cries Mary"

After all the jacks are in their boxes,
and the clowns have all gone to bed,
you can hear happiness staggering on down the street,
footprints dress in red.

And the wind whispers Mary.

A broom is drearily sweeping
up the broken pieces of yesterday's life.
Somewhere a Queen is weeping,
somewhere a King has no wife.

And the wind it cries Mary.

The traffic lights they turn blue tomorrow
And shine their emptiness down on my bed,
The tiny island sags downstream
'Cos the life that they lived is dead.

And the wind screams Mary.

Will the wind ever remember
The names it has blown in the past,
And with this crutch, its old age and its wisdom
It whispers, "No, this will be the last."

And The Wind Cries Mary.

SHALOM...Z

GOOD MORNING UFOCASEBOOKERS cheesy


5280.com (Denver Magazine)

Only in Colorado: UFO Watchtower

A small watchtower in the middle of the San Luis Valley is supposedly one of the best places on the planet to catch a glimpse of unidentified flying objects.

By Terri Cook
24 August 2015

When it comes to spotting UFOs, most people usualy think of New Mexico, not Colorado. Yet a small watchtower in the middle of the San Luis Valley is one of the top spots on the planet to view these unidentified objects, according to Judy Messoline, a cattle rancher-turned-UFOlogist who owns and operates it.

After Messoline moved to the valley to raise cattle, she often heard UFO stories. It got to the point, she says, that she’d giggle and say, "We need a UFO watchtower," never dreaming that she would one day be the one to build it. But after four and a half years of being a rancher, Messoline could no longer afford to feed her cows and was forced to sell the herd. A short time later, while working at the gas station in Hooper, she was telling one of the local farmers that she didn’t want to be forced to sell her land, too. He said to her, "you need to put up that UFO Watchtower you've laughed about.”

Sensing that he was right, Messoline erected the UFO Watchtower in 2000. Since then there have been 96 sightings from the structure, 26 of which Messoline herself has witnessed (as of August 2015). “Keep in mind I had never seen anything prior to starting this little venture,” she says. “It's been a real eye opener!”

The sightings can occur any time of day, explains Messoline, but they’re easiest to spot at night, when the dancing lights and erratic green streaks stand out in the valley’s clear, high air and dark skies. “We've also seen actual crafts, cigar shapes, saucers, and a couple we thought at first were birds,” she says.

To take advantage of the prime middle-of-the-night viewing hours, visitors often camp on the property. Many sleep out under the stars on the tower, which is really more of a platform. The flat, white metal structure is perched directly above what Messoline calls the Healing Garden, where two large energy vortices are located—according to the more than 25 psychics who have visited the site.

The psychics marked the vortices’ centers with large stones and told Messoline that anyone who needs help in his or her life should go to the Garden and ask for it. To harness this force, Messoline encourages visitors to leave behind a trinket. “I've told folks to leave something in the Garden to get their energy there,” she says.

The scope and creativity of the Garden offerings are impressive, ranging from (hopefully expired) credit cards and half bottles of wine to alien paraphernalia and hundreds of pens sticking out of the ground in a fanciful, flower-like bed. Collectively these votives pay homage not only to the extraterrestrials that people hope to spot at the UFO Watchtower, but also to the 30,000 visitors from around the world—and possibly farther—who have landed here.

Visit: The UFO Watchtower is located just west of Highway 17 in the San Luis Valley, a few miles north of Hooper. The tower is open 24/7 year-round for viewing. There is a $2 per person (or $5 per car) admission fee. Primitive camping (with no water) costs $10 per tent, per night.

Blayney Chronicle (Australia)

NSW skywatcher who filmed UFOs says he was quizzed by men in black

By Tim Barlass
Aug. 23, 2015, 12:15 a.m.

There's a movie being screened in Sydney next week that is sure to polarise its audience. It's called Australien Skies.

It's a documentary about some of the unexplained stuff seen by people who call themselves skywatchers. The timing is good. Earlier this month Russian billionaire Yuri Milner announced he would spend at least $US100 million ($138m) to see if there really is anything "out there". Australia will contribute to the effort using the CSIRO's Parkes radio telescope.

There is an intriguing story in the documentary from Kiama told by Liam Freaney. He's a builder, married with two kids and is a pretty regular kind of guy who, two years ago, had no particular interest in UFOs or staring up at the heavens.

But in March 2013, he and a workmate saw in the daylight, bright stars gathering around a ball of white light which disappeared and reappeared before being approached by what he describes as a F18 Super Hornet. Then everything vanished.

A few months later he started seeing objects regularly and bought a video camera to film them. But then things, he says, took a slightly sinister turn. Helicopters started hovering low over his house.

"I would see and film an object then directly afterwards I would get home and a helicopter would show up and sit over the house," he said. "So I started filming the helicopters as well as the unidentified flying objects. It happened over and over again, 20 or 30 times at least.

"When they hover the height of a lamp post above your house and lean out the window it's definitely not military training."

"These things will go invisible in front of you then reappear then shoot across the sky into a pinprick and then come straight back in front of you at incredible speed. Maybe I have filmed something I shouldn't have. That's a possibility."

He got in touch with Damien Nott and with Mariana Flynn, president of UFO Research NSW. She said they had reports of black helicopters flying over numerous homes.

"There have been reports of people leaning out of the helicopter with a camera and filming," she said.

Mr Freaney was last year going to give a talk about his experience to her UFO group. The event had been publicised on the internet. It was two weeks before the talk and he was near home when he noticed a car behind him.

"It had flashing lights inside the front grill. It was a black car. I stopped. Two guys got out of the black Holden Statesman with a
Canberra plate.

"One approached the window and he said: 'Good day Liam, how are you?' I said 'This is really strange.' He said: 'Yep, but you know what it is about. We'd like it if you didn't do your talk.' They said it would be better off for me to keep my mouth shut and to have a good day and then left."

He decided it might be wise not to give the talk. Now he has changed his mind.

"I am well aware of the situation I am putting myself in," he said. "The purpose of this whole two and a half years of contact that has happened to me I believe is for me to pass on the message that it is happening and that it is real. The only thing I have got out of it is to tell people what I am seeing."

The story NSW skywatcher who filmed UFOs says he was quizzed by men in black first appeared on The Sydney Morning Herald.

Has Stephen Hawking Just Solved a Huge Black-Hole Mystery?

by Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer
August 26, 2015

Stephen Hawking may have just solved one of the most vexing mysteries in physics — the "information paradox."

Einstein's theory of general relativity predicts that the physical information about material gobbled up by a black hole is destroyed, but the laws of quantum mechanics stipulate that information is eternal. Therein lies the paradox.

Hawking — working with Malcolm Perry, of the University of Cambridge in England, and Harvard University's Andrew Stromberg — has come up with a possible solution: The quantum-mechanical information about infalling particles doesn't actually make it inside the black hole.

"I propose that the information is stored not in the interior of the black hole, as one might expect, but on its boundary, the event horizon,"Stephen Hawking said during a talk today (Aug. 25) at the Hawking Radiation conference, which is being held at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.

The information is stored at the boundary as two-dimensional holograms known as "super translations," he explained. But you wouldn't want super translations, which were first introduced as a concept in 1962, to back up your hard drive.

"The information about ingoing particles is returned, but in a chaotic and useless form," Hawking said. "For all practical purposes, the information is lost."

Hawking also discussed black holes — whose gravitational pull is so intense that nothing, not even light, can escape once it passes the event horizon — during a lecture last night (Aug. 24) in Stockholm.

It's possible that black holes could actually be portals to other universes, he said.

"The hole would need to be large, and if it was rotating, it might have a passage to another universe. But you couldn't come back to our universe," Hawking said at the lecture, according to a KTH Royal Institute of Technology statement. "So, although I'm keen on spaceflight, I'm not going to try that."

Science Daily

Something to crow about: New Caledonian crows show strong evidence of social learning

Date: August 26, 2015
Source: University of California - Santa Barbara

Among our greatest achievements as humans, some might say, is our cumulative technological culture -- the tool-using acumen that is passed from one generation to the next. As the implements we use on a daily basis are modified and refined over time, they seem to evolve right along with us.

A similar observation might be made regarding the New Caledonian crow, an extremely smart corvid and the only non-human species hypothesized to possess its own cumulative technological culture. How the birds transmit knowledge to each other is the focus of a study by Corina Logan, a junior research fellow at UC Santa Barbara's Sage Center for the Study of the Mind when she conducted her research. Currently, she is a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in the Department of Zoology at the University of Cambridge.

"We don't know whether the crows have cumulative technological culture, and one of the reasons is that we don't know how they learn," said Logan. "There's a hypothesis that says in order for cumulative technological culture to occur you need to copy the actions of another individual. And we don't know whether the crows are paying attention to the actions of others when they learn from someone else."

But the crows have been observed using tools they've made out of long, narrow, palm-like Pandanus leaves. "It has a serrated edge, and they cut into one side of the leaf, then make another cut farther down and then rip off the part in between," Logan explained. "It makes a tool they can use to dig grubs out of logs."

Even more curious, according to Logan, the crows have been observed using tools made of the same material but in different shapes -- wide, narrow and stepped, which might be more structurally sound. However, no one has been able to explain the geographic variation in tool shapes -- all three shapes are seen at the south end of New Caledonia, while the stepped tool is more prevalent everywhere else.

"It's thought that in order for tool shapes to be transmitted, one bird would have to watch another cutting the leaf and then mimic that bird's actions," Logan continued. "That would require imitation or emulation."

Evidence of Social Learning

So Logan devised a study to look at all the learning mechanisms -- social and asocial -- the crows employ when solving a foraging problem. To level the playing field so that those birds with more experience with one particular tool don't have an advantage over the others, Logan gave them a novel non-tool task.

She designed the experiment based on apparatus used by University of Leeds zoologist Will Hoppitt in a similar study he conducted on meerkats. "I used two apparatuses with multiple access points on each," she said, "so we could look at whether the crows were imitating or emulating, whether they were just paying attention to another crow's general location or whether they were paying attention to a specific area on an apparatus that another crow was interacting with."

Logan and colleagues found that the crows don't imitate or copy actions at all. "So there goes that theory," she said. "Assuming how they learn in a non-tool context carries over to a tool context, they wouldn't copy the actions of individuals they see cutting up Pandanus leaves to make tools."

But Logan and her team did strong evidence of social learning: If one crow sees a companion interacting with a particular area of the apparatus, reaching its bill through a door and pulling out a piece of boiled egg -- the treat -- the former is far more likely to try that particular door on either apparatus before choosing the other access options.

"It's called stimulus enhancement," she explained. "That's the social learning mechanism they're using. But there's another interesting aspect: Once they see another bird interact with the door, they go to that door and then begin to solve the problem on their own. And now they completely ignore social information and they just use trial and error learning to open the door and extract the food."

Even if one crow is at an apparatus and tries unsuccessfully to open the door, if he or she sees another crow on the second apparatus actually solving the problem correctly, the first crow doesn't use that information. "The social learning attracts them to a particular object and then they solve it through trial and error learning after that," Logan said.

"So we thought, 'Okay, if they don't imitate or emulate, how could they still have cumulative technological culture?'" she continued. Perhaps it's a combination of social learning and trial and error. Consider the grub digging. "In the wild, juveniles live with or near their parents for the first year or so," she explained. "The juveniles see their parents make and use a particular tool shape. And often the parent will leave the tool inside the hole in the log and the juveniles will grab it and start interacting with it."

Similar to the stimulus enhancement Logan and her team identified initially, the crow parents could draw their children's attention to the tools to make them more likely to interact with the tools. In addition, wild juveniles appear to learn how to use the tool through trial and error over the course of several months.

"We're suggesting it could be that they're copying the end result of another crow's action, but they're not copying the actual actions of the other crows," Logan continued. "It's actually a form of emulation but it doesn't involve the copying actions that were hypothesized previously."

Everyone's a Teacher

For this study, Logan placed the crows in small groups. One was a family that consisted of two parents and their two sons; another included two mated pairs that weren't related; and the third was made up of an adult and five juveniles. One of the juveniles was likely the adult's daughter but the rest were unrelated. It had been previously hypothesized that juveniles do most of the learning, with adults picking up very little, if anything, from the youngsters or from each other.

It turns out this was mistaken. "It didn't matter what group it was," Logan said. "Everyone learned from everyone -- juveniles from juveniles, adults from adults, juveniles from adults, adults from juveniles. It seems that if they have the opportunity, they'll learn from anyone. But because they live in family groups, it seems to constrain who they have the opportunity to learn from in the wild."

Logan plans to replicate the study with the great-tailed grackle, another highly intelligent bird. "They are expanding their range really rapidly," she said. "There are many questions about how they learn to forage so successfully in new environments. Are they learning from other species about what to forage on when they encounter a new food type? Or are they exploring on their own, using their own information?"

According to Logan, studies such as this broaden our understanding of the nature of cumulative technological culture. If it can spread through other mechanisms, such as stimulus enhancement -- simply drawing one's attention to something and imprinting on a particular way of doing things -- it could expand scientists' ideas about where they should look for cumulative culture in general, and cumulative technological culture in particular.

Thanks Swamp, I'm a Hawking fan! The problem in need of solving is that info is eternal, yet if sucked into a black hole was considered lost from our universe.

Hawking and Perry's solution is that while particles move into the hole, their information is destroyed while still in our universe, that is, precisely on the edge/boundary of the black hole. Thus such information never goes away, be it that it now is chaotic/without order.

Then again, isn't order in information what makes it informative (to for instance particles)? Losing order from information arguably equals destroying information as information. Meaning (to my non-quantum mind) it's "for all practical purposes" lost (which, being supposedly 'eternal', it cannot be). huh

You know what, Swamprat: my headache is back...

Purr,

..Hawking and Perry's solution is that while particles move into the hole, their information is destroyed while still in our universe, that is, precisely on the edge/boundary of the black hole. Thus such information never goes away,..

But if the particles are the information, and the information stays at the boundary, what is carrying on into the core ?

Can anything exist without it's information ?

And just what is this information ? The recipe for the sub atomic matter ?

And should the black hole eventually fade away, as Hawking has suggested, where does the information go if it's particles no longer exist ?

The top ten most unexpected words added to the online Oxford dictionary

Awesomesauce, Grexit and manspreading have all made the cut

By Lucy Clarke-Billings
10:28AM BST 27 Aug 2015

The online Oxford dictionary has added 1,000 new words to its database.

The latest additions have been announced, highlighting the things British people have been talking about in the summer of 2015, such as inconsiderate commuters, solidified waste and unacceptable service charges.

Here are ten of the most unexpected words on the list:

1. manspreading (noun): the practice whereby a man, especially one travelling on public transport, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide apart, in such a way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seat

2. awesomesauce (adjective): extremely good; excellent

3. bants (noun): playfully teasing or mocking remarks exchanged with another person or group; banter

4. fat-shame (verb): cause (someone judged to be fat or overweight) to feel humiliated by making mocking or critical comments about their size

5. Brexit (noun): a term for the potential or hypothetical departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union

6. bruh (noun): a male friend (often used as a form of address)

7. cakeage (noun): a charge made by a restaurant for serving a cake they have not supplied themselves

8. fatberg (noun): a very large mass of solid waste in a sewerage system, consisting especially of congealed fat and personal hygiene products that have been flushed down toilets

9. Grexit (noun): a term for the potential withdrawal of Greece from the eurozone (the economic region formed by those countries in the European Union that use the euro as their national currency)

10. hangry (adjective): bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger

New words, senses, and phrases are added to OxfordDictionaries.com once editors have gathered enough independent evidence from a range of sources to be confident that they have widespread currency in English, but do not gain an entry into the Oxford English Dictionary unless continued historical use can be shown.

Fiona McPherson, senior editor of Oxford Dictionaries, said the addition of multiple slang words did not represent a dumbing down of English, but showed "creative" use of language.

She said: "There's always been new slang words. I just think we are more aware of them because of the ways in which we consume and live our lives now.

"We are bombarded with more and more avenues where those sort of words are used and we just think that there are more of them. I don't necessarily think that's the case.

"From my point of view, as a leixcographer, it's not really about dumbing down, it's more creative ways that people are using language."
