Largest UFO conference in the world returns to Arizona

Date: 28 January 2014
Posted By : by Maureen Elsberry

The International UFO Congress, presented by Open Minds Production, is the largest annual conference on UFOs and extraterrestrial life in the world. The conference will be held at the Fort McDowell Resort and Casino in Fountain Hills, Arizona, February 12th – 16, 2014.

The event features more than 20 speakers and wide variety of exhibitors from around the country, and covers a varying degree of topics related to the UFO phenomenon including sightings, technology, government cover-ups, exopolitics, black projects, crop circles, alien visitation, space, and more.

This conference isn’t just for UFO and space enthusiasts; everyone is encouraged to come hear from these seasoned professionals on what might be one of the greatest mysteries of our time.

The diverse and still growing line-up includes Richard Hoover, a former NASA Astrobiologist, George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated radio show Coast to Coast AM, Aaron Sagers, journalist and host of the Travel Channel series Paranormal Paparazzi, as well as Dr. John Alexander, a retired colonel and non-lethal weapons specialist.

Panel presentations on Government Cover-Up , Science and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life, and Alien Abduction will feature authors, researchers, experiencers and TV personalities and provide the audience a chance to interact with speakers and ask the pertinent questions.

“We’ve got a very diverse line-up this year,” conference co-organizer Maureen Elsberry says, “we’ve pulled in speakers and events that will interest the general public as well as UFO and space enthusiasts. The UFO phenomenon is considered one of the great mysteries of our time and by delving deep in the subject maybe one day we will have some answers.”

Another special event will be a night vision skywatch on Friday, February 14th, led by Ben Hansen, the lead investigator from the popular SyFy show Fact or Faked. Night Optics USA, a Bushnell company, will be providing some of their latest military-grade technology for the watch. Night Vision Ops will also have a booth in the vendor room.

The event will also feature the Meet the Speakers cocktail party, the EBE Film Festival Awards Banquet, a performance by local musicians the Austen Mack Quartet, as well as special exclusive premieres of new extraterrestrial shows from the Discovery Network.

Conference admission will be sold in packages for those many guests who make a week of the event, along with à la carte options available for those who just want to check it out for an afternoon. Arizona students will receive a 40% discount when they present a valid student ID at the door. The vendor room, film festival, and skywatch are free and open to the public.

About the International UFO Congress:

The International UFO Congress is an Arizona based organization dedicated to the dissemination of information related to many areas in ufology. It was established in 1991 and hosts an annual conference which is the largest of its kind in the world. It features presentations given by authors, researchers, experts, enthusiasts, and those who have witnessed paranormal or anomalous phenomena from all over the world. It also provides a forum to discuss the experiences and findings. This event usually has over 20 Speakers, a Film Festival, tons of vendors as well as experiencer sessions. Topics generally covered are abduction, UFO sightings, UFO crashes, crop circles, paranormal experiences, government conspiracy and much more.

Foreign Policy Rethink: Germany Weighs Stronger Military Role

By Ralf Neukirch and Gordon Repinski
January 28, 2014 – 03:07 PM

Last Tuesday's meeting between German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Laurent Fabius could hardly have been more harmonious. Dark-gray suits, white shirts, blue ties -- the two looked as if they had even coordinated their clothing as they faced the press. Steinmeier said he already felt at home after visiting the French Foreign Ministry for the third time in two weeks. Fabius politely praised his friendship with dear "Frank-Walter."

Relations between Berlin and Paris are better than they've been in a long time, and that's evident not just in the effusive exchanges of pleasantries. The French now want to follow the German example in economic policy, after two years of resisting it. Berlin in turn wants to provide Paris with stronger support in military missions in Africa in future. "Europe can't leave France on its own," said Steinmeier.

That's a big step not just for France, but for Germany as well. The new German government, inaugurated just a month ago, is charting a new course in foreign policy. The central question under Steinmeier's predecessor, Guido Westerwelle, was: "How can we keep out of armed conflicts?" Westerwelle favored a culture of military restraint, which meant leaving unpleasant tasks up to others.

Now, two ministers from Chancellor Angela Merkel's new coalition, which pairs her conservatives with the center-left Social Democrats, have set about abandoning Westerwelle's legacy. Steinmeier and Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen believe that an economic powerhouse like Germany can't continue to stand on the sidelines. They want to show Germany's allies that the country can be relied upon. "We can't look away when murder and rape are taking place daily," von der Leyen told SPIEGEL in an interview.

Unwilling When Things Got Dangerous

The new approach has already led to concrete policy changes. Germany plans to dispatch more troops to support France's campaign against Islamists in Mali. The government is also considering providing military aircraft for transport and medical evacuation in the Central African Republic. This course isn't entirely new. When he was chief of staff to Chancellor Gerhard Schröder between 1998 and 2005, Steinmeier helped formulate a bolder German foreign policy. Steinmeier doesn't want to push Germany into foreign military adventures. But he, like von der Leyen, has realized the damage Westerwelle did with speeches calling for a "policy of military restraint."

Westerwelle's stance was in keeping with the passive role West Germany played during the Cold War, before Germany attained full sovereignty with unification. Although his position was mainly motivated by domestic politics, it went along with a veiled accusation that London, Paris and Washington were too trigger-happy. And Germany's partners didn't appreciate that. Germany gained a reputation as a moralistic nation keen to wag its finger, but unwilling to get involved when things got dangerous.

Steinmeier and von der Leyen want that to change. "We want to reactivate the Foreign Ministry," State Secretary Markus Ederer, a close confidante of Steinmeier, said last week. Another high-ranking official in the ministry put it even more clearly: "It's getting harder each month to justify a policy of military restraint."

Von der Leyen agrees. She wants to use the Defense Ministry to forge a common European security policy, and to put Germany, and herself, of course, at the forefront of this development. But the project will only be credible if Germany really does sign up to dangerous deployments.

Merkel Disillusioned With Military Missions

The position adopted by the two ministers runs counter to the policy Merkel has pursued over the last four years. Merkel didn't stop the plans for an increased mission in Mali but her aides have tried to avoid creating the impression that it's part of a policy change. "There is no fundamental change regarding foreign missions," said a senior official in the Chancellery.

In her eight years in office thus far, Merkel has lost faith in the notion that military intervention can bring about improvements. She was particularly disillusioned by the German army's mission in Afghanistan. In addition, she tends to be influenced by opinion polls, which show that Germans are skeptical about the army engaging in combat missions.

The result is that Germany's foreign policy course promises to be a matter of debate in Merkel's cabinet in the coming years. Just how delicate the situation has already become was made clear two weeks ago.

Merkel, von der Leyen, Steinmeier and SPD head Sigmar Gabriel met on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting ahead of a meeting of EU foreign ministers, set for the following Monday, to address ways in which Europe could better support the French military mission in Africa. It was clear that Berlin would have to arrive at a common position.

At an EU summit in December, Merkel had responded negatively to the French desire for stronger European support. Now, however, she declined to use her veto. She wanted to send the French a message that they wouldn't be left alone. But it became clear just how wary Merkel is of the military mission when she noted that a parliamentary majority was necessary for the operation. Her message was clear: A final decision had not yet been made.

Still, Steinmeier and von der Leyen could mark down Merkel's preliminary change of heart as a success. Even before he took his oath, the foreign minister had given thought to how he might be able to recoup some of the influence his office had lost to the Chancellery in recent years. He knows that even small steps are valuable.

Offer to Destroy Syrian Chemical Weapons

Immediately after taking office last December, Steinmeier explored whether it would be possible for Syrian chemical weapons to be brought to Germany for destruction. His predecessor, Guido Westerwelle, had been opposed to the idea, fearing that transports of chemical weapons could be met with the kind of violent and impassioned protests that accompany shipments of radioactive waste in the country. Indeed, when Merkel's foreign policy advisor Christoph Heusgen said last November that Germany could play a role in eliminating Syrian chemical weapons, Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert quickly voiced disapproval. Merkel did not want to risk conflict with Westerwelle on the issue.

From Steinmeier's point of view, the destruction of Syrian chemical weapons offers a prime opportunity for Germany to demonstrate its willingness to take on responsibility without having to take much risk. Von der Leyen agreed during a meeting between the two earlier this month. Together, they convinced Merkel.

Steinmeier would also like to become more involved in Europe than his predecessor was. French Foreign Minister Fabius could hardly hide his contempt for Westerwelle when the two met. Now, he has expressed his willingness to join Steinmeier on trips. "The Foreign Ministry has realized that the key to the European project is to be found in French-German relations," says Ulrike Guérot from the Open Society Initiative for Europe.

Volker Perthes, director of the German Institute for International and Security Affairs, also believes that the step toward France taken by the defense minister and foreign minister is an important one. "Such signals are often the prerequisite for substantive changes," he says.

The key question remains, however, whether von der Leyen and Steinmeier can jointly make inroads on the foreign policy domain of Merkel's Chancellery. The fact that the two have similar ideas about Germany's role in the world will certainly help. Steinmeier would like to strengthen European institutions while von der Leyen, in her previous role as labor minister, voiced her support for a "United States of Europe." Merkel, on the other hand, has little time for such musings. She has enough on her plate.

Traditionally, however, the Foreign Ministry and the Defense Ministry have been locked in bitter competition, which will not make it easy to maintain lasting harmony. Furthermore, von der Leyen is still unsure as to how much she should trust Steinmeier. When the plans for Germany's Mali mission found their way into the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper earlier this month, von der Leyen immediately suspected that Steinmeier was behind the indiscretion. The Foreign Ministry denied it, but the defense minister was not convinced.

Still, the two plan to present themselves as representatives of a changed Germany at the Munich Security Conference, which begins on Friday. In recent years, Berlin has been in the uncomfortable position of having to defend its passivity at the conference. This year, the Germans want to change the narrative.

It is a message that German head of state, President Joachim Gauck, plans to deliver as well. In his opening speech, Gauck plans to call on Germans to recognize their place in the world, according to plans from his office.

Call for Joint European Defense Policy

Defense Minister von der Leyen is not only interested in improving Germany's image among its allies. Rather, she would also like to develop a joint European defense policy worthy of the name. Thus far, such plans have always failed in the face of opposition from countries such as France and Great Britain, which wouldn't dream of delegating any control over their militaries to Brussels, thus sacrificing a portion of their sovereignty.

Thanks, Zetar! Hey Crystal River is nice, but if you REALLY wanna swim with the manatees, you need to go on down the road to Weeki Wachee!


Weeki Wachee Springs State Park

This historic and world-renowned tourist attraction features Weeki Wachee Spring, 1 of Florida’s 33 first-magnitude springs. The spring, plus a second-magnitude spring in the park and several smaller springs outside the park, combine to form the 7-mile-long Weeki Wachee River.

User Image
WEEKI WACHEE SPRING: Mermaids, an underwater theatre, river cruises and water slides make Weeki Wachee one of Floridas most entertaining spring destinations. For those looking for a more natural experience, the Weeki Wachee River offers a beautiful clear water run with swift waters and lots of wildlife. Canoes and kayaks can be rented and launched within the park.

The spring’s average discharge is 112 million gallons a day. The sandy-bottomed spring pool is large, at 165 feet by 210 feet, but the vent is a small 20-foot by 3-foot opening through exposed limestone rock at a depth of 185 feet.

The force of the discharge is too great for safe entry except during drought conditions. Divers report that the cave has a roomlike tunnel that is 55 feet wide, 28 feet high, and 220 feet long. They have been able to map and explore over 6,700 feet of deep passages, and report 1 pit to be just over 400 feet deep, the deepest recorded in the United States. The mermaids at Weeki Wachee Spring have delighted visitors since 1947, and visitors can still witness their magic from the 400-seat submerged theater. The park is located on U.S. Highway 19 at the intersection of State Road 50, just north of Spring Hill and south of Homosassa Springs.

At a Glance:

Activities: Mermaid show, animal shows, boat tour, kayaking/canoeing, scuba diving, wildlife viewing, restaurant, banquet hall, snack bar, picnic area. Buccaneer Bay (a seasonal water park) offers swimming, a water slide, and snorkeling,

User Image

On January 26, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erdogan addressed the ruling Justice and Development Party at a meeting in Izmir...as a hologram.

With the help of Turkish special effects company Polyvision, Erdogan was beamed into the meeting after being shot against a green screen.

The avatar version of the PM told the meeting, "We are going to the elections in the shadow of attacks prepared by treasonous networks. I urge all my mayoral candidates to not waste any of their time."

Erdogan is currently embroiled in a massive corruption scandal which has already resulted in the resignation of several high ranking officials.

In November of 2012, Indian politician Nerendra Modi pioneered the use of political holograms during his election campaign.

UFO: Google Earth shows alien entity over South Africa

Date: 29 January 2014
Posted By : by Saira

UFO sightings are not new, and will continue to be the privilege of a few. The reason is that the mind does not always want to grasp the strange and unexplained. Sightings are witnessed all the time, but are always viewed with scepticism.

Though the sighting of the UFO on the Google Earth is seen, many have not accepted the fact yet. A witness who saw a UFO reported the sighting, which was over the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa. He made a video recording of the Google Earth Map in June 2011, to show where the craft had appeared. The video clearly shows a second witness watching the craft.

He reported the incident to Google, and the image disappeared from the Google Earth Maps. He admitted that he knew this would happen, but it is still upsetting. They even went as far as to delete the 360° view bubbles to make sure there is no evidence. This makes Google very much part of the cover-up of the UFO sightings around the world.

The fact that there is hardly any evidence except for a few witnesses, the world remains oblivious (or rather sceptical) of the visitations of crafts like this one.

Scott Waring who edits UFO Sightings Daily suggests a cover-up that he links to elites in relation to Google Earth.

Badass Dive Suit Will Make Even Astronauts Jealous

By Erin Biba
01.29.14
9:30 AM



User Image
Suit photo: courtesy of Nuytco Research Ltd.



After eight hours underwater at a depth of 1,000 feet, a diver must spend 10 days in a decompression chamber. That’s why shipwreck salvagers and pipeline inspectors use submarines or unmanned rovers. Now there’s a better solution: Nuytco’s Exosuit. The articulated shell keeps its inhabitant at surface atmosphere while enabling free movement on the seafloor. Divers have worn a version of the $600,000 suit to do internal repairs on New York City water supply pipes and will soon use one to check for oil pipeline leaks off Dubai. With thrusters and an optional hook hand, the Exosuit is way more badass than scuba gear.

1// Helmet The domed window lets divers see past their chest down to their feet. That means they don’t have to contort to see what they’re working on.

2// Air Two redundant oxygen systems provide up to 50 hours of air, which is constantly recirculated through carbon dioxide scrubbers.

3// Thrusters Divers control four 1.6-horsepower thrusters with their feet. If your mission needs more juice, you can upgrade to eight thrusters.

4// Telemetry A fiber-optic cable connection allows topside monitoring and control of the suit in case the diver loses consciousness.

5// Manipulators The suit comes with accessories: claws for all occasions, including large and small grippers for different sized objects, a saw for cutting lines, and a hook.

6// Extreme flexibility Eighteen rotary joints in the arms and legs allow the diver to bend and flex freely.
