Science Alert

Scientists have recreated an ancient mead from 2,500 years ago

Aged to perfection.

by PETER DOCKRILL
25 OCT 2016

There's aged wine and then there's aged wine, and an alcoholic beverage based on an analysis of cauldron sediment dating back some 2,500 years is most definitely the latter.

Researchers in Milwaukee have teamed up with a local craft brewer to recreate this ancient tipple – but before you get too excited about sampling a booze relic hailing from the Iron Age, be warned: it might not be quite suited to modern tastes.

The project is the brainchild of archaeologist and anthropologist Bettina Arnold from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, who uncovered the cauldron in a burial plot back in 2000, during a dig in an area of southwest Germany known as Swabia.

The burial mound, called a tumulus, was built sometime between the 7th and 5th centuries BC. The skeleton inside must have disappeared long ago due to the levels of acid in the soil, but the team suggests he was most probably a male, based on the weapons buried with him: an iron slashing sword, a helmet, and two long iron spears.

But the real prize lay at his feet – a large bronze cauldron, once full of mead. One for the road, so to speak.

"The dead man in Tumulus 17 Grave 6 had been sent into the afterlife not only with his weapons but with about 14 litres of an alcoholic beverage that he could have used to establish himself as an important person in the next world as he had been in this one," Arnold explains on her ancient brew blog.

While this heady brew itself was missing by the time Arnold's team discovered the cauldron – either due to natural processes of evaporation, or perhaps proving popular in its afterlife destination – the researchers carefully excavated the find to see if later analysis in the lab might reveal the drink it once contained.

Investigating a dark residue on the bottom of the vessel, "[w]e actually were able, ultimately, to derive at least some sense of what the contents were in [the] bronze cauldron," Arnold told Bonnie North at NPR.

The team found evidence of a honey-based alcoholic beverage, with traces of two herbs added for flavour: meadowsweet and mint.

The analysis suggests that the cauldron once contained a braggot, a kind of mead consisting of just five ingredients: barley, honey, mint, meadowsweet, and yeast.

Teaming up with a local craft brewer, the researchers did their best to recreate the ancient drop as it would have tasted millennia ago.

According to those who've sampled the finished product, the braggot is certainly drinkable, if considerably tarter than what we tend to drink today.

"I got to sip the final product," writes North for NPR. "The result was smooth and pleasant – almost like a dry port, but with a minty, herbal tinge to it. It also packed an alcoholic kick."

"[Our] version would have been significantly cleaner than the prehistoric one, but we did succeed in producing something that provides those of us with jaded modern palates with a very different flavour profile," explains Arnold.

"The mint actually came through first, which was unexpected, followed by the slightly astringent meadow sweet, but the honey was barely in evidence (having been almost completely converted to alcohol)."

In addition to the lack of sweetness, there's also the strength to consider.

"With an ABV [alcohol by volume] of over 8 percent, this is not your grannie's braggot," Arnold writes, "and although adding honey at this stage would probably make it more drinkable for [contemporary] mead imbibers, we decided to leave it as is."

While the ancient braggot probably won't be doing the rounds at your local – as the brewers don't think it would be something people would want to buy – it's a testament to the power of today's analytical techniques that we can recreate these ancient brews at all.

The researchers' analysis of the sediment has yet to be published, meaning the technique hasn't had a chance to be scrutinised by other researchers. Until it is, we can't know for sure how accurate their recipe is.

But this isn't the first time scientists have used such methods to recreate ancient brews. Previously researchers have given new life to 5,000-year-old Chinese beer and shipwrecked ales sunk off the coast of Finland – beverages once lost to the sands of time, now being tasted again.

Credit of course also has to go to the long-gone cultural practices that saw these ancient alcohols preserved as they were – without them, this little window back into history would remain shut.

"Luckily for us, they didn't just send people off to the afterlife with [swords and spears] – they also sent them off with the actual beverage," Arnold told NPR.

"It's a BYOB afterlife, you know? You have to be able to sort of throw a party when you get there."

Leaks: Hillary Clinton getting desperate; Tries to fake UFO invasion to win elections?

By Jose Mari Franz Teves
Oct 25, 2016 08:22 AM EDT

According to a recent leak from an unknown source, the Clinton supporters are planning to launch a fake UFO invasion.

Why? They are aiming at distracting voters from voting against Hillary Clinton. In the meantime, conspiracy theorists are trying to configure whether this can be legitimately true or not. Are Aliens truly coming to us, and is Hillary Clinton and her allies in partnership with them?

The latest update of the issue explains that US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be using the aid of aliens to distract the American people during Election Day. Since most conspiracy theorists are against Clinton, she believes that by launching an alien attack,

It will ultimately keep people away from the voting booths. Although some people think this is all a huge joke, there's also a handful of people who actually thinks that she isn't lying at all.

Donald Trump will be our savior against Hillary Clinton and her Aliens

It's kind of scary, and crazy, to think about, but US Presidential Candidate Donald Trump could potentially be asavior. If one thinks about it, he's the one and only man who is truly not afraid to speak his mind. And he is always very confident about everything that comes out of his mouth. He is the one and the only person who is capable of taking down this rumored UFO invasion.

Here's a guy who won't even hesitate to use nuclear bombs against invaders. He is the perfect hero in this circumstance. If Trump gets called for the service, what most people believe is that he will be building a giant space wall.

This space wall will prevent the aliens from even coming in. People all know this sounds completely insane. But crazy situations like this call for an even crazier leader, and Donald Trump is definitely that guy.

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you

Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone

Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.
The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now

As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

Well I’m trying to get myself prepared because I think Hillary will get in. And if you ask why people would vote for this blank, I have no idea. I think anybody with a reasonable measure of intelligence could see through her BS etc. However, unfortunately, I think we live in a Watters World. For the most part the Democratic Party will give you free stuff, (or so they promote) people like free stuff, just a mere promise that they will get free stuff is enough to get them voting for “the bitch” then when they don’t get it they just say she needed more time. In the meantime the Republicans are in a self-destruct mode.

What a screwed up political situation.

Eventually there could be a civil war, just commenting by the way this seems to be going.

The Local (Sweden)

This tiny bird can fly for ten months straight: scientists

Published: 28 Oct 2016 07:27 GMT+02:00

A small, dark-feathered bird known as the common swift flies for ten months on end without ever landing, the longest time spent aloft of any known bird, scientists said on Thursday.

The findings in the US journal Current Biology confirmed a 46-year-old hypothesis, first offered by British researcher Ron Lockley, that these birds spend most of their lives in the air.

A team of researchers from Sweden fitted tiny backpacks on 13 of the brownish-black birds.

Weighing only one gram, these microdata logs recorded whether the birds were in the air or not, their acceleration, and where they had been at any given time.

“When the common swifts leave their breeding site in August for a migration to the Central African rainforests via West Africa, they never touch ground until they return for the next breeding season ten months later,” said researcher Anders Hedenström of Lund University in Sweden.

“Some individuals may roost for brief periods, or even entire nights in mid-winter, but others literally never landed during this period.”

Those who did stop did so only briefly, and spent 99.5 percent of the ten months in the air.

The birds catch food while in flight, according to the study.

Researchers said they still don't know if or how the birds sleep during this time, but suggested that they might catch a few winks when they fly to high altitudes each day at dawn and dusk, and then slowly descend.

During the day, they probably save energy by gliding in upward currents of warm air.

“This discovery significantly pushes the boundaries for what we know about animal physiology,” said Hedenström.

“A ten-month flight phase is the longest we know of any bird species – it's a record.”

Other kinds of birds, such as the frigate bird, are known to sleep while gliding.

U.S. Spends Millions on “Green Bus Corridor” in Mexico, “Bicycle Highway” in Colombia

A recent survey revealed that Americans most fear government corruption and that the climate doesn’t even make the Top Ten list of worries.

Our Corruption Chronicles blog illustrates why Americans should worry about climate change – because of the government corruption involved in supposedly combating it:

Surprise, surprise: The U.S. is the first to donate millions of dollars to yet another global warming experiment—run by the famously corrupt United Nations—that aims to forge “climate resilient infrastructure” in third-world countries.

The money will help build a bicycle highway in Colombia and bring electric buses and a “green bus corridor” to Mexico, issues that are unlikely to keep most American taxpayers up at night.

It’s part of an initiative called C40 Cities Finance Facility, launched at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris last year. The global warming powwow in France has already cost American taxpayers a chunk of change, and Judicial Watch made the numbers public over the summer after obtaining records from the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of the Air Force.

The documents offer a detailed breakdown of the cost, but the total expenditure to have President Obama attend the ludicrous Paris shindig was an eye-popping $4,165,068. Judicial Watch had to file a lawsuit to get the information because the administration refused to provide it under the federal public-records law that was enacted to keep government in check.

During the Paris conference, the C40 Cities Finance Facility was launched to provide much-needed cash for a 10-year-old program called C40 that claims to be a “network of the world’s megacities committed to addressing climate change.” The conglomerate specializes in tackling climate change in developing countries by driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks.

Evidently, it’s come up with some brilliant ideas in the last decade to accomplish its mission but not enough money to implement them. As is the case in many of these global, feel-good initiatives, Uncle Sam has generously opened his checkbook for this important cause. Germany is the other “funding partner” listed along with the U.S.

The first $2 million, doled out this month by the U.S., will fund two urban pilot projects in Latin America that are expected to bring “climate change adaptation and mitigation benefits.” The first project is a 25-kilometer bicycle highway in Bogota, Colombia, that will connect citizens from low, middle and high-income neighborhoods to work, education, and recreation opportunities.

An announcement published by the U.S. government calls the project a “first-of-its-kind” traversing the Colombian city from south to north. The rest of the money will buy a fleet of at least 100 electric buses for Mexico City and install a “green bus corridor” in one of its major thoroughfares. It’s expected to serve an estimated 133,400 Mexicans daily, providing connections to metro lines. This is an important investment for the U.S., a government official says in the announcement, because the impacts of climate change are impeding cities from delivering reliable services, “especially to the poorest.”

Years ago, the Obama administration determined that the poor will feel the brunt of climate change and it has cost American taxpayers monstrous sums. In the last few years the U.S. government has funded a number of programs, both domestic and international, to prepare those communities for the impact.

Back in 2012 the administration asked Congress for a whopping $770 million to help developing countries with climate change initiatives after it had already spent $323 million on a project called Global Climate Change Initiative that helps “meet the adaptation and mitigation needs of developing countries, including deploying clean energy technologies.”

Earlier this year, a federal audit revealed that a $25 million project to help Guatemala combat the ills of climate change is rife with problems that include data errors and discrepancies. The program is officially known as Climate Nature and Communities in Guatemala (CNCG).

‘No UFOs allowed’: French mayor refuses to overturn town’s bizarre extraterrestrial ban


By Hazel Plush
28 October 2016 • 11:51am

The French town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is best-known for its superlative red wine, but it sounds like the locals might have been enjoying the fruits of their labours a little too much.

For the last 62 years, a law has prohibited the “flying over, landing, or taking off of flying saucers” in the area – and the mayor of the town has refused to overturn it.

Former mayor Lucien Jeune issued the ban, which reads: “Any aircraft, known as flying saucer or flying cigar, which should land on the territory of the community will be immediately held in custody.”

No police officers in his constituency have ever had to arrest any aliens, but that doesn’t mean that current mayor Claude Avril will drop the law any time soon.

“I'm not going to touch the ban,” Avril told France Bleu this week. “It spices things up a bit. It creates a harmless kind of buzz and no one is getting tricked.”

The 1954 law was established after a man in northern France said he had seen two figures that looked like “deep sea divers” emerging from a “cigar-shaped” space ship.

http://i1.wp.com/fmshooter.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/ghost-boat.jpg
Self-made millionaire Gregory Sancoff has spent a decade and $19 million building a highly unusual stealth boat. Called Ghost, it’s designed to be faster, more stable, and more fuel-efficient than anything currently in the U.S. Navy’s fleet, he says. “It’s such a smooth ride, you can sit there and drink your coffee going through six-foot swells,” he proudly told Bloomberg Businessweek in 2014.



But there’s a problem: The Pentagon doesn’t want Sancoff’s boat—and also won’t let him sell it abroad.

Source: The Feds Won’t Buy this $19 Million Stealth Boat – Or Let It Be Sold Abroad | Bloomberg

A little background is necessary here – Gregory Sancoff is a self-made millionaire who spent some of his own fortune building a stealth boat for the U.S. Navy. The Navy has chosen not to purchase Sancoff’s “Ghost” boat. That is fine… except, the Navy has deemed the technology too classified to allow him to sell it anywhere else. How does this make any sense, if he developed the boat all on his own, without any government funding or assistance?

Apparently, this all happened because he patented his invention, and tried to sell it to the Navy. The Navy was initially interested, but also served him with secrecy orders, and later placed his firm under watch of International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Though you would think he would have some legal recourse here, such action is made extremely difficult, as he is not a large-scale defense firm such as Lockheed, and does not have the same legal resources at his disposal.

The outlook for Juliet isn’t great. Last year, the U.S. patent office issued 95 secrecy orders—one for every 6,628 applications, as Joshua Brustein wrote in June. Most of those inventions were developed by large companies, specifically for the military or other government agencies. But as Brustein points out, the orders “are a different sort of ordeal for private inventors, about a dozen of whom file patent applications that are made secret by government mandate each year.” Inventors who break gag orders can lose their patent rights, or face fines or incarceration. And while some secrecy orders are reversed each year, others date back as far as the 1940s.

If Sancoff’s boat contains such sensitive technology that it cannot be sold abroad, why doesn’t the US Navy just buy his prototype from him? They won’t need to contract his firm to build a fleet, but they can purchase the technology for use in other DARPA projects. $19 million is but a drop in the bucket of the Navy’s ~$380 billion dollar budget, after all.

Apparently, $19 million is too much to spare for a stealth boat, when you’ve already wasted $23 billion building three stealth destroyers, that have been watered down from their own original plans, and don’t even have close-in air defenses.

160421-N-YE579-005 ATLANTIC OCEAN (April 21, 2016) The future guided-missile destroyer USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) transits the Atlantic Ocean during acceptance trials April 21, 2016 with the Navy's Board of Inspection and Survey (INSURV). The U.S. Navy accepted delivery of DDG 1000, the future guided-missile destroyer USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) May 20, 2016. Following a crew certification period and October commissioning ceremony in Baltimore, Zumwalt will transit to its homeport in San Diego for a Post Delivery Availability and Mission Systems Activation. DDG 1000 is the lead ship of the Zumwalt-class destroyers, next-generation, multi-mission surface combatants, tailored for land attack and littoral dominance. (U.S. Navy/Released)

The Zumwalt class stealth destroyer was originally contracted in the 1990’s to eventually replace the Navy’s aging Arleigh Burke class destroyers. Similar to so many monstrous defense projects, the Zumwalt was plagued with delays, cost overruns, and subsequent cost cutting measures that led to a far less capable destroyer than was originally planned, and the buy was correspondingly cut from 32 copies to just three. With questionable self-defense capabilities, this destroyer cannot be deployed to any hotspot without external support, as a ship with similar defenses was recently destroyed by very unsophisticated weapons. Originally expect to run at ~$300 million a copy, the smaller buy and higher costs pushed the cost of the remaining three to about $8 billion apiece.

So, just to clarify – the US Navy can afford to waste $23 billion on a stealth destroyer of questionable efficacy, but can’t afford to spend less than 0.001% of that cost on a stealth boat prototype, even if solely for the sake of using the technology in future designs. Is it any wonder why even our unpopular Congressional leaders are telling the military to stop buying equipment it doesn’t need? Perhaps the DoD should be more supportive of innovators who spend their own dime to develop new technologies, instead of screwing them over every step of the way, and instead choosing to continue wasting taxpayer dollars on flawed designs?

The defense procurement process is beyond flawed; it is in need of a complete overhaul. The Pentagon needs to focus on building out more prototypes, and testing them in the field before committing to buying large numbers of untested designs. Smaller defense projects with room for expansion will leave the DoD more nimble, and more able to quickly adapt to new challenges posed by differing adversaries with increasingly differing tactics. And, one of the best ways to do that is to encourage innovators like Sancoff, who are willing to invest their own resources to build prototypes, not discourage them.
http://i2.wp.com/fmshooter.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/zumwalt-destroyer.jpg
But look on the bright side – the DoD won’t spend $19 million on a stealth boat prototype, instead choosing to waste $23 billion on three neutered stealth destroyers… but at least its not a $1.5 TRILLION dollar project that is “too big to fail”, so it must proceed in its screwing of the taxpayer.

As drones become more and more affordable, their use as inexpensive aerial cameras and traffic monitors makes them an increasingly common sight above cities around the world.

Unfortunately however these remote-operated aerial platforms have also sparked a rise in UFO sightings, as evidenced this week in Austria where dozens of witnesses believed they'd seen an extraterrestrial visitor over the skies of Vienna and Graz.

Videos and photographs of the anomalous object have been appearing online for days with some witnesses adamant that they have managed to capture evidence of a craft from outer space.

Local authorities, who have received numerous reports concerning the phenomenon, have so far declined to release a statement clarifying the nature of the sightings.

By: Thom Davis & Rene’ Powers, The Cowboy And The Lady


The cases in Oregon and Nevada, surrounding BLM and Federal Tyranny which have caused American Whistle Blowers to be unlawfully incarcerated, are turning into a real sordid mix of intrigue and murder, union cards and talent slips, topped off with federal prosecutors faking evidence and entrapping innocent people for what seems to be the unjust enrichment of a few who are attempting to cover their steps. We seek to know the truth.
Once again a question was asked of us and we put the information out for you, men and women seeking answers, to help. The man known as Brian Boquist, Oregon Senator, has had stories of “secret squirrel” status written about him and what we do know is that somewhere between the lines the truth exists. Many have already said that they believe private mercenaries are being used in America by the UNITED STATES in aligning with the U.N. intent of military law, so we have to question all of these interesting facts.
THE EMAILS AND COMMUNICATIONS: http://www.bendbulletin.com/newsroo...
Boquist was involved in communications that were released regarding the investigation into the assassination of Lavoy Finicum and Malheur Refuge Whistle Blowers: On Jan. 18, state Sen. Brian Boquist, R-Dallas, wrote to Brown. Writing that he and the governor agreed about little beyond law enforcement, he urged Brown to put pressure on the FBI to set up a security perimeter around the refuge to “freeze out the occupiers peacefully.”
Boquist wrote that local and state law enforcement resources were insufficient should the occupation continue. “The Obama Administration appointees need to allow the FBI to take the necessary actions to force a peaceful resolution before county and state law enforcement emergency resources snap,” he wrote. “It is an unfortunate but necessary recommendation.”
Two days later, Brown wrote to President Barack Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch. In her letter to Lynch, Brown asked the FBI to bring the occupation to an end. “The residents of Harney County are being intimidated in their own hometown by armed criminals who appear to be seeking occasions for confrontation,”
Brown wrote. “The harm being done to the innocent men, women and children of Harney County is real and manifest. With each passing day, tensions increase exponentially.”

Quantum Biology

In its billions of years on earth, plant life has become super-efficient at using light – and now it's showing how it does it.

A quantum – minuscule – examination of chlorophyll within certain purple bacteria shows an exceptionally efficient geometric arrangement for light harvesting, say scientists from The University of Queensland and Iran's Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences.

UQ's Dr Ivan Kassal, also a researcher at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems, said the bacteria used "quantum coherence" – particles' wave-like properties – to harvest light during photosynthesis.

"Inside, the bacteria's chlorophyll molecules – which collect energy from light – are arranged in symmetrical rings," Dr Kassal said.

"This geometric organisation is exceptionally good for light harvesting.
User Image
"By Understanding how the purple bacteria harvest light, we may be able to use these lessons to improve how we do artificial light harvesting."

Dr Kassal said previous research had proposed the theory that quantum coherence played a role in how the purple bacteria harvested light.

"We found that the geometry adopted by the purple bacteria allows for quantum coherence," he said.

"There has been debate in the field about whether coherent effects are possible in photosynthetic systems at all."

"The research was significant also because it provided evidence of quantum effects in a biological setting," Dr Kassal said.

"We know now that quantum effects cannot be neglected in studies on biological light harvesting," he said.

"This is a fertile ground for developing new technologies for simulating quantum systems in noisy environments."

"The study also opens avenues for research into whether quantum coherence already occurs in organic solar cells, and whether humans can deliberately engineer that coherence to make them more efficient."

2.Scientist Duke it out over Dark Energy..New paper says it may not exist

http://www.space.com/34503-universe-expansion-accelerating-dark-energy.html

The new analysis found just "marginal evidence" for the concept of dark energy and accelerating expansion.

"The evidence for accelerated expansion is, at most, what physicists call '3 sigma.' This is far short of the 5-sigma standard required to claim a discovery of fundamental significance," co-author Subir Sarkar, of Oxford University in England, said in a statement.

"So it is quite possible that we are being misled, and that the apparent manifestation of dark energy is a consequence of analyzing the data in an oversimplified theoretical model — one that was in fact constructed in the 1930s, long before there was any real data," Sarkar added.

Sarkar acknowledged that "a lot of work will be necessary to convince the physics community" that this latter possibility could actually reflect reality. This appraisal seems to be accurate; there has indeed been pushback from other astronomers.

One skeptic is Paul Sutter, an astrophysicist at The Ohio State University (and a contributor to Space.com's "Expert Voices" section). For starters, Sutter thinks that Nielsen et al. shouldn't be so dismissive of the statistical link that they found.

"I don't know, 3 sigma is pretty great to me," he told Space.com. "Their paper very clearly points to a universe with dark energy."

While Sutter agreed with Sarkar that a 3-sigma detection is not entirely convincing by itself, he stressed that the motion of Type Ia supernovas is far from the only evidence supporting the existence of dark energy. Sutter cited, among other things, oscillations in the cosmic microwave background (the ancient light left over from the Big Bang); observations of large-scale structure in the universe; and "baryon acoustic oscillations," which are odd fluctuations in the density of matter.

"If we had a universe with no dark energy, those features would have disappeared long ago," Sutter said. "We have scads of evidence — multiple and independent probes — that all point to a universe with dark energy. And the authors [of the new study] try to just kind of hand wave this stuff away."

Sutter said that the new paper should help scientists better understand how to use supernova data to get a better handle on dark energy. But he thinks the authors made an unwarranted leap in suggesting that, as Sarkar put it, "a key pillar of the standard cosmological model is rather shaky."

"If you took out the strong claims that the authors are trying to make, it's an interesting nuts-and-bolts methodology paper," Sutter said. "But it doesn't really even begin to rock the foundations of modern cosmology."

They sound just like us at UCB don't they?

Curses are frightening things. They can take hold in an instant or wait decades to strike, take on all manner of devious phenomena from back luck to death, and they don’t discriminate between those ignorant of their existence and those who know better. Places can be cursed by terrible events, people can be cursed by scorned strangers, and even sports teams can find themselves the victim of bad mojo, but the most common curse comes from removing haunted objects from their rightful place. These types of cases never seem to end well.

Recently, while in the middle of an online discussion about my experiences with The Crone, a cursed object in the Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult which requires special handling, I received a reply from an individual who mentioned that her grandmother brought back a curse from Nazca when she’d stolen a mummified hand from an ancient Peruvian burial ground. Thanks to her transgression, she and her entire family were victims of an angry poltergeist until her death.

Naturally, I had to hear the whole, chilling story. Here, presented for the first time in public, is a frightening first-hand account of why you never steal from a cemetery, much less one guarded by ancient spirits.

When I was a kid, my grandma lived with us. Now, we always had paranormal activity in the house, but it really intensified when I was around 8. It was only recently that I put two and two together and I’m pretty sure that this is why the activity increased then.

She’d always go on trips around the world. Back in the 70s, when I was 8, she went to the Amazon with my aunt. One day they went to an ancient burial ground. The ruins were in Peru’s Chauchilla Cemetery, near Nazca. Later that night, back at the hotel, my grandma showed my aunt a “souvenir” that she’d gotten. Out of her purse, she pulled a fucking HAND. Yeah, she’d found a skeletal hand at the burial ground and thought it would be a good idea to take it. My aunt freaked the hell out and insisted that it be returned, so the next day they talked to their tour guide, and they arranged to go back to the burial ground.

But the damage was done. One thing that happened was that immediately, my grandma developed some nail fungus. It was only on her thumbnails and big toenails. The nails grew in thick and yellow-brown, and no treatments were ever successful in getting rid of it. She’d kept in contact with several people from the tour, and two even came to visit us, but she was the only one this happened to.

And the other thing was not just that the activity in the house increased, but it was…evil. Just a very dark entity. Whenever it came around you could just feel the air change and would be filled with dread. The dogs would go crazy. Sometimes it was physical.

This entity stayed with my family for 30 years and through several moves, and it finally stopped when my grandma passed away. When I read the Week in Weird story about The Catskills Crone, all that I could think was that I hope you’re better at appeasing angry spirits than my grandmother was.

Woman badly burned after farting during surgery


By Ian Horswill, News.com.au
November 1, 2016

A patient who passed gas during an operation was badly burned when the fart ignited a laser being used in the surgery, a hospital report states.

The unnamed woman, in her 30s, was undergoing surgery at Tokyo Medical University Hospital which involved a laser being applied to her cervix.

As the surgery was being carried out in the Shinjuku Ward, she broke wind — sparking the fire, Japanese newspaper the Asahi Shimbun reports.

She was left screaming in agony after the fire burned most of her body, waist and legs, according to a report by external experts into the incident, which was released on Oct. 28.

The committee stated in the report that no flammable materials were in the operating room during the surgery and that equipment was functioning normally.

“When the patient’s intestinal gas leaked into the space of the operation (room), it ignited with the irradiation of the laser, and the burning spread, eventually reaching the surgical drape and causing the fire,” the report stated.

The accident happened on April 15 this year but was only published in a recent hospital report. Tokyo Medical University Hospital is an acute care facility that claims to be the only facility in Japan to carry out surgery using robots.

Nanobionic spinach plants can detect explosives

After sensing dangerous chemicals, the carbon-nanotube-enhanced plants send an alert

Date: November 1, 2016
Source: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Spinach is no longer just a superfood: By embedding leaves with carbon nanotubes, MIT engineers have transformed spinach plants into sensors that can detect explosives and wirelessly relay that information to a handheld device similar to a smartphone.

This is one of the first demonstrations of engineering electronic systems into plants, an approach that the researchers call "plant nanobionics."

"The goal of plant nanobionics is to introduce nanoparticles into the plant to give it non-native functions," says Michael Strano, the Carbon P. Dubbs Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT and the leader of the research team.

In this case, the plants were designed to detect chemical compounds known as nitroaromatics, which are often used in landmines and other explosives. When one of these chemicals is present in the groundwater sampled naturally by the plant, carbon nanotubes embedded in the plant leaves emit a fluorescent signal that can be read with an infrared camera. The camera can be attached to a small computer similar to a smartphone, which then sends an email to the user.

"This is a novel demonstration of how we have overcome the plant/human communication barrier," says Strano, who believes plant power could also be harnessed to warn of pollutants and environmental conditions such as drought.

Strano is the senior author of a paper describing the nanobionic plants in the Oct. 31 issue of Nature Materials. The paper's lead author is Min Hao Wong, an MIT graduate student who has started a company called Plantea to further develop this technology.

Environmental monitoring

Two years ago, in the first demonstration of plant nanobionics, Strano and former MIT postdoc Juan Pablo Giraldo used nanoparticles to enhance plants' photosynthesis ability and to turn them into sensors for nitric oxide, a pollutant produced by combustion.

Plants are ideally suited for monitoring the environment because they already take in a lot of information from their surroundings, Strano says.

"Plants are very good analytical chemists," he says. "They have an extensive root network in the soil, are constantly sampling groundwater, and have a way to self-power the transport of that water up into the leaves."

Strano's lab has previously developed carbon nanotubes that can be used as sensors to detect a wide range of molecules, including hydrogen peroxide, the explosive TNT, and the nerve gas sarin. When the target molecule binds to a polymer wrapped around the nanotube, it alters the tube's fluorescence.

In the new study, the researchers embedded sensors for nitroaromatic compounds into the leaves of spinach plants. Using a technique called vascular infusion, which involves applying a solution of nanoparticles to the underside of the leaf, they placed the sensors into a leaf layer known as the mesophyll, which is where most photosynthesis takes place.

They also embedded carbon nanotubes that emit a constant fluorescent signal that serves as a reference. This allows the researchers to compare the two fluorescent signals, making it easier to determine if the explosive sensor has detected anything. If there are any explosive molecules in the groundwater, it takes about 10 minutes for the plant to draw them up into the leaves, where they encounter the detector.

To read the signal, the researchers shine a laser onto the leaf, prompting the nanotubes in the leaf to emit near-infrared fluorescent light. This can be detected with a small infrared camera connected to a Raspberry Pi, a $35 credit-card-sized computer similar to the computer inside a smartphone. The signal could also be detected with a smartphone by removing the infrared filter that most camera phones have, the researchers say.

"This setup could be replaced by a cell phone and the right kind of camera," Strano says. "It's just the infrared filter that would stop you from using your cell phone."

Using this setup, the researchers can pick up a signal from about 1 meter away from the plant, and they are now working on increasing that distance.

"A wealth of information"

In the 2014 plant nanobionics study, Strano's lab worked with a common laboratory plant known as Arabidopsis thaliana. However, the researchers wanted to use common spinach plants for the latest study, to demonstrate the versatility of this technique. "You can apply these techniques with any living plant," Strano says.

So far, the researchers have also engineered spinach plants that can detect dopamine, which influences plant root growth, and they are now working on additional sensors, including some that track the chemicals plants use to convey information within their own tissues.

"Plants are very environmentally responsive," Strano says. "They know that there is going to be a drought long before we do. They can detect small changes in the properties of soil and water potential. If we tap into those chemical signaling pathways, there is a wealth of information to access."

These sensors could also help botanists learn more about the inner workings of plants, monitor plant health, and maximize the yield of rare compounds synthesized by plants such as the Madagascar periwinkle, which produces drugs used to treat cancer.

"These sensors give real-time information from the plant. It is almost like having the plant talk to us about the environment they are in," Wong says. "In the case of precision agriculture, having such information can directly affect yield and margins."

Iran claims it's sending elite fighters to infiltrate US, Europe


By Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon
Published November 02, 2016

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, the country’s elite military force, is sending assets to infiltrate the United States and Europe at the direction of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, according to recent Farsi-language comments from an Iranian military leader.

The IRGC “will be in the U.S. and Europe very soon,” according to the Iranian military commander, who said that these forces would operate with the goal of bolstering Iran’s hardline regime and thwarting potential plots against the Islamic Republic.

“The whole world should know that the IRGC will be in the U.S. and Europe very soon,” Salar Abnoush, deputy coordinator of Iran’s Khatam-al-Anbia Garrison, an IRGC command front, was quoted as saying in an Iranian state-controlled publication closely tied to the IRGC.

The military leader’s comments come as Iran is spending great amounts of money to upgrade its military hardware and bolster its presence throughout the Middle East and beyond. Iran intends to spend billions to purchase U.S.-made planes that are likely to be converted for use in its air force.

Congressional leaders and others suspect that Iran has used a large portion of the cash windfall it received as a result of last summer’s nuclear agreement to upgrade its fighting capabilities war machine.

“The IRGC is [the] strong guardian of the Islamic Republic,” Abnoush was quoted as saying. “The Fedayeen of Velayat [fighting force] are under the order of Iran’s Supreme leader. Defending and protecting the Velayat [the Supreme Leader] has no border and limit.”

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/04/canada-investigates-mysterious-pinging-sound-at-bottom-of-sea-in/



Canada's military is investigating a mysterious "pinging" that is emanating from the sea floor in the Arctic.

The sound, which has also been described as a "hum" or a "beep", has apparently spooked the local wildlife in the Fury and Hecla Strait.

Paul Quassa, a member of the legislative assembly, said the noise was "emanating from the sea floor".

"That's one of the major hunting areas in the summer and winter ... And this time around, this summer, there were hardly any. And this became a suspicious thing."

The military said it was investigating what was causing the sound.

"The Department of National Defence has been informed of the strange noises emanating in the Fury and Hecla Strait area, and the Canadian Armed Forces are taking the appropriate steps to actively investigate the situation," an armed forces spokesperson told CBC News.

Department of National Defence internal correspondence suggested submarines were not considered a likely source of the noise but had not the been ruled out, the broadcaster said.

Internal correspondence between sources in the Department of National Defence, obtained by CBC News, suggest submarines were not immediately ruled out, but were also not considered a likely cause.

George Qulaut, another member of the legislative assembly, said he also noticed the lack of wildlife.

"That passage is a migratory route for bowhead whales, and also bearded seals and ringed seals. There would be so many in that particular area," he told CBC News, recalling his own days of hunting there.

"This summer there was none."

The pinging has prompted much speculation. Some have blamed Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation, which has previously conducted sonar surveys of nearby. However, the company said it was not conducting any surveys in the area, and had no equipment in the water, CBC News reported.

Others have suggested Greenpeace might have caused the sound to scare wildlife away from the rich hunting ground, an allegation the environmental group denied.

Might I be permitted to baffle you yet a little more then, my friend ZETAR?



Article the third... Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;......
The Bill of Rights


Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

The Bill of Rights



Assuming that constitutional rights extend to all the People, including its governors and of course the 1st Citizen, furthermore noting that in case of the American presidency there already have been those of both the Protestant and Catholic faith, it follows imho that in principle (no state imposed religion, neither "prohibition" of religions' "free exercise") as well as precedence (this freedom historically extends to US presidents) Hillary Clinton can believe in whatever she wants to believe in (and so can her staff), no matter what job she applies for! (POTUS actually need not be a uh.. born again Christian, and America does not need to be a Christian country, although for the past decades pres candidates have been falling over themselves broadcasting their deep Christian faith wink.)

So, if Podesta (or even the Clintons themselves) want to pass the time by throwing the occasional bucket of fake blood at their dining room wall, go Voodoo like, that should no more be a disqualifier for leading the country than say being a Mormon, Judeism adherent or Atheist! Americans are simply free to believe in anything! (Never mind you don't likey, Crystal smiley)

(Amendment IX counterbalances this religious freedom with other constitutional rights, like for example if a devout religious cannibal, reading his Holy Cannibible grin wanted to claim the right to eat fellow Americans, his claim would be denied, and possibly prosecuted, because other people have a constitutional right to life.)

Comey is the equivalent of Judas who in furtherance of career..accepted the 30 pieces of silver . But the problem was not just the backlash but his own wife stopped talking to him..his crew stacked resignations on his desk we are told..then he faced the the mountain of emails which they had not seen in possession by the NYPD..indicating sloppy investigation and a bevy of undeniable chargeable violations of law. Even duplicity by DOJ in appointing a close long time friend of Podesta to oversee the new investigation for the DOJ
while Posesta , now primary target of interest.
Its too late to give back the silver..because its clear..he failed, they failed to do their job.

On the Satanic part I could care less of adults parading in the WH or elsewhere..in costumes exchanging blood and feces and semen for wrinkle cream... When it comes to animal and human sacrifices, and evidence of child pornography and trafficking for some of the darkest purposes imaginable..that is an entire matter altogether...
This is the shadow government at work..and they are in the open now exposed.

Lost in all this is the point taken by our new Arc member..Cliff..National secrets were leaked..to five and possibly more intelligence agencies.. Agents were exposed..some may have been killed..and whether you are a good catholic..Baptist..Jew or Muslim...or nice Dutch girl..someone has to pay the piper.

There is a good reason now that I see why the heads of state in the Muslim countries call us the Great Satan..Why even the CIA Brennan converted to Islam..they all except us shmucks know what these circles of deviants and thinktank psychopaths and their secret clubs have done...not just bomb their populations but steal resources...including human beings.and youg men and women..especially .children whether its because of war..or even a natural catastrophe like Haiti..which is just the tip of the ice berg..the PTB have found a way to herd them as cheap labor, sex slaves..organ harvesting as in Bosnia, or to rejuvenate the host country with new blood..and use as cannon fodder in new wars..
How Roman
How clever.
How Evil.


If Comey wants to redeem himself..then he needs to slap the handcuffs on now or risk letting those others connected on notice get away. Even if that Includes the POTUS and The DOJ.

Reasonable men know..you cannot reason or negotiate with psychopaths especially when they believe they are immune..untouchable.. unless first..you have them in custody. and reason sets in...like Weiner..a reasonable prosecutor with will has the duty..to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law what happened here.
Redemption is Nigh Mr.Comey..don't let that slip from your hands...leave a Good mark for those that will follow

Dilbert Creator Explains "How To Unhypnotize A Hillary Clinton Supporter"
Tyler Durden's picture
by Tyler Durden
Nov 5, 2016 11:35 AM
0
SHARES

"The strongest form of persuasion is fear," explains Dilbert cartoon creator Scott Adams, and Clinton’s team of persuaders has convinced her followers that Trump is dangerous. As Adams details, if you remove that part of her spell, Trump wins. Here’s how...

1. Trump’s Tough Talk Inspires violence: Ask Clinton supporters if they have seen the Project Veritas video of Clinton operatives talking about paying people to incite violence at Trump rallies. The people on the video have been fired, and we haven’t seen violence at Trump rallies since.

2. Temperament: Ask Clinton supporters if they have seen the video of Clinton ranting “Why aren’t I already fifty points ahead?” She looks either inebriated or deranged. Mention that the people who know Trump personally have reported that he is both smart and sane in person. Even his enemies who know him personally don’t claim he has a temperament problem. If he did, is there any chance we wouldn’t have heard about it by now?

3. Trump might insult foreign leaders into a war: Trump and Putin seem to get along fine. Netanyahu said he could work with Trump. Mexico isn’t likely to start a war over trade, or the wall. Trump says North Korea is China’s problem, which is literally the safest thing you could say. And China’s leaders are adults who know Trump says offensive things now and then. China will pursue its own interests, and none of those interests involve going to war over some words. Likewise, other leaders are adults too. They won’t change their foreign policy over some insults.

5. Trump might start a war: Trump owns buildings and property around the world. As a general rule, people who own a lot of real estate don’t start wars because their own assets are at risk. But Clinton is “sponsored” – via the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees – by defense companies that profit from war. Likewise, Clinton is sponsored by foreign countries whose interests don’t align with American interests. Clinton supported war in Iraq and Libya, and she threatens Russia, just as the money trail suggests she would. Trump talks mostly about having a strong military to avoid war. He gains nothing by war.

6. Alcohol: Normally alcohol would not be a risk factor in picking a president because usually both candidates are social drinkers. But Trump has never had an alcoholic beverage while Clinton tells us she enjoys social drinking. Having a few social drinks is not a problem unless you plan to drive a car…or make a nuclear launch decision. If we don’t trust a social drinker to operate a motor vehicle, can we trust a social drinker to manage a nuclear arsenal?

If you have ever drunk-texted, or received a text from someone who has, you already know how much “social drinking” can influence decisions.

7. Group Violence versus Crazy Individuals: Have you noticed that when you see election-related violence from a group, it is always Clinton supporters? That happened at Trump’s San Jose rally, and it happened with the homeless woman protecting Trump’s star on the Walk of Fame. When Trump supporters do something violent they are usually acting alone, and crazy. When Clinton supporters get violent it comes in the form of mobs who are NOT crazy. That’s the dangerous kind of violence because they are literally Stronger Together.

8. Pacing and Leading: When normal politicians change their minds we label it flip-flopping or – more kindly – “evolving” in their thinking. When a Master Persuader does it, you are seeing pacing and leading, which is a major tool of persuasion. Pacing involves matching people – in this case emotionally – and later using that bond to lead them. We see Trump doing this often.

a. Trump paced his base by saying he would deport 11 million undocumented immigrants. Once he had his base on his side emotionally, he led to them to his current policy of deporting only the people who committed crimes while here. Have you heard any Trump supporters complain about it lately?



b. Trump paced his base by saying he would ban all Muslim immigration to stop terrorist infiltration. Once he had them on his side emotionally, he led them first to a ban on specific problem countries, and then again to “extreme vetting,” which is a lot like Clinton’s plan. Trump supporters followed, and you don’t hear them complaining.



c. Early in the primaries Trump paced the racists in the Republican party by not disavowing them as clearly and as loudly as even the racists thought he would. Since then he has led Republicans to think that some form of a “New Deal” for African-Americans might be worth a look.



d. At the Republican National Convention, Trump used his emotional connection to his supporters to declare he was the strongest voice to protect the LGBTQ community. Republicans stood and cheered.

Months ago, Adams predicted that Trump would soften his immigration proposals, as he saw him from the start as a Master Persuader, not a crazy person, and not a common flip-flopper.

In my opinion, Trump might be the safest president we have ever had.



He can lead the dark parts of his base toward the light (as Nixon went to China) and he has no incentive for war.



Claims about his “temperament” are mostly about his penchant for insults, and that isn’t a mortal danger to anyone.

On the count of three..you will awake refreshed and clearminded..ready to face the world...and vote smart

Archaeologists have uncovered a 'cursed' well in England

The stuff of legends.

by JOSH HRALA
4 NOV 2016

Archaeologists in the UK have uncovered a small well that was traditionally used by religious pilgrims, who believed it could wash away their sins and cure various ailments such as poor eyesight.

The team thinks that the well – which is more like a shallow spring used for bathing – was built to honour Saint Anne, the supposed mother of the Virgin Mary, who had a cult following in Britain during the late Medieval Period (1066-1485 AD). And according to folklore, that well was cursed.

Researchers from the Historic England Heritage have named the religious site St. Anne’s Well, and it was found buried on a piece of privately owned land near Liverpool.

Local archaeologists and the owner of the property were aware of the well for some time, but until now, no one had excavated it, and it had only been identified by photographs taken in 1983.

Now that it's original structure has been uncovered, researchers have been given new insight into when and how the well was used.

"When we first got to the well we found that there was very little indication of it on the surface, but after excavation, it was found to be in reasonable condition," the team’s supervising archaeologist, Jamie Quartermaine, told Rossella Lorenzi at Seeker.

"This well was probably a late Medieval foundation as the cult of St. Anne did not become widespread in England until after the end of the 14th century."

During the time it was constructed, healing wells were all the rage in Britain, and St. Anne was commonly attributed to them – though many other healing wells were built in honour of other saints, too.

This well in particular would have seen pilgrims stepping into a pool of spring water roughly 1.2 metres (4 feet) deep, where they could wash away sins or attempt to be healed through divine powers.

The well was thought to be maintained by a priory of 12 local monks that were so successful, they even managed to turn a profit from the land, and the well grew so popular that two of the monks became full-time caretakers of it.

"The well attracted numbers of pilgrims, necessitating the building of a small three-roomed structure around the well and the custodianship of two of the monks," Quartermaine told Seeker.

The well’s popularity wasn’t the only thing that made it stand out – legend says it was 'cursed' sometime during the 16th century.

According to a newspaper report from 1877, the story goes that a neighbouring landowner by the name of Hugh Darcy was upset with the amount of space the well was taking up, prompting a dispute with Father Delwaney, one of the monks who helped run the monastery.

The feud reached a tipping point when the two were arguing near the well, and Darcy told the monk that he wouldn’t be in business for much longer.

A few days later, a messenger from the king at the time – most likely Henry VIII, who had a thing for closing monasteries – came to close the facility and well, and an upset Father Delwaney promptly cursed Darcy and told him he would be dead in under a year.

Moments after the curse was muttered, the legend states that Delwaney fell over dead.

To be clear, this story is based on nothing more than hearsay, that has probably been exaggerated more and more with each telling.

But according to the folklore, a series of unfortunate events followed Darcy around for the next year – such as his son dying mysteriously, and his finances taking a turn for the worst.

Finally, after a night of drinking, Darcy was found at the well with his head smashed in, and no one knows how he managed to suffer such a fate.

Again, it's just a legend, but it's a good one.

The researchers suspect that religious pilgrims continued bathing in the well’s waters up until the 19th century, until it was eventually abandoned and ploughed over.

Now that it's been unearthed, the team plans on adding some wood around the water to ensure that it doesn’t get covered up again or damaged, and will be working with local farmers to ensure the site is maintained.

The team’s work has yet to appear in a peer-reviewed journal for verification, so for now, we're taking their word for it that this is the well of St. Anne from the stories.

But hopefully, after further analysis, the researchers will share the details of their work with the public and the rest of the scientific community.

And if all goes well with the excavation, one of the most long-lasting holy wells in the UK will be revived, and fingers crossed it's curse-free.

IT'S ELECTION DAY!

Dealing with 'election stress' disorder

Jason Miles , KHOU
November 07, 2016

HOUSTON - Are you feeling anxious about the election? You’re not alone.

Psychologists say the symptoms come around every four years and can affect people who normally don’t have anxiety issues at all.

“I have some level of worry that person I did not vote for might win,” said voter Jay Campbell. She’s concerned about the potential outcome of the presidential election.

“And that terrifies me,” said Campbell. She’s taken rather extreme steps in order to manage her fear.

“I took some money out of my pension account in case the stock market crashes,” said Campbell.

According to the American Psychological Association, the election is a source of significant stress for more than half of all Americans.

Research says those of us who use social media may be even more prone to election-induced anxiety because of the constant flow of information.

Psychologist David Genac says it’s not limited to those with pre-existing stress.

“There’s a lot of people that don’t even have anxiety disorders that are really stressed about the results of this election,” said Genac.

Like with other types of anxiety, medication may be an option for people who find election stress interfering with their daily lives. Otherwise, Genac relies on what he calls “grandma’s rules," which includes exercise, eating right and putting it all in perspective.

“A lot of times you’ll get really stressed out and worried about things that don’t end up happening in reality,” said Genac.

Even worriers like Campbell have learned to cope. “If I do feel stress, I can go meditate somewhere,” said Campbell.

Psychologists also suggest turning off your TV and other devices.

Mysterious Universe

When Bigfoot Gets Stylish

November 10, 2016

by Nick Redfern

Without doubt, one of the most bizarre aspects of the Bigfoot phenomenon is that relative to nothing less than clothed Bigfoot! It’s one thing to encounter such a creature. It’s quite another, however, to see it fashionably attired in pants and shirts – well, kind of. Incredibly, such strange and controversial claims do exist. Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman says: “In the 1960s and 1970s, reports from the American West would occasionally surface of hairy bipedal Bigfoot being seen with tattered plaid shirts and ragged shorts on their bodies. In some research, there were intriguing attempts to relate these to files of paranormal encounters with sightings of upright entities said to be wearing ‘checkered shirts.’ (Within parapsychology, there is a subfield of study regarding ‘checkered shirted ghosts.’) Investigators generally did not know what to make of these Sasquatch wearing plaid shirts, but dutifully catalogued and filed them away, nevertheless.”

One of the most fascinating of all such encounters occurred in California at the turn of the 1950s. The story came from a woman who, at the time of the incident, was a young girl. Her story was told by cryptozoologist and Bigfoot authority, Ivan T. Sanderson:

How liars create the illusion of truth

Repetition makes a fact seem more true, regardless of whether it is or not. Understanding this effect can help you avoid falling for propaganda, says psychologist Tom Stafford.

“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. Among psychologists something like this known as the “illusion of truth” effect. Here’s how a typical experiment on the effect works: participants rate how true trivia items are, things like “A prune is a dried plum”. Sometimes these items are true (like that one), but sometimes participants see a parallel version which isn’t true (something like “A date is a dried plum”).

After a break – of minutes or even weeks – the participants do the procedure again, but this time some of the items they rate are new, and some they saw before in the first phase. The key finding is that people tend to rate items they’ve seen before as more likely to be true, regardless of whether they are true or not, and seemingly for the sole reason that they are more familiar.

So, here, captured in the lab, seems to be the source for the saying that if you repeat a lie often enough it becomes the truth. And if you look around yourself, you may start to think that everyone from advertisers to politicians are taking advantage of this foible of human psychology.

But a reliable effect in the lab isn’t necessarily an important effect on people’s real-world beliefs. If you really could make a lie sound true by repetition, there’d be no need for all the other techniques of persuasion.

One obstacle is what you already know. Even if a lie sounds plausible, why would you set what you know aside just because you heard the lie repeatedly?

Recently, a team led by Lisa Fazio of Vanderbilt University set out to test how the illusion of truth effect interacts with our prior knowledge. Would it affect our existing knowledge? They used paired true and un-true statements, but also split their items according to how likely participants were to know the truth (so “The Pacific Ocean is the largest ocean on Earth” is an example of a “known” items, which also happens to be true, and “The Atlantic Ocean is the largest ocean on Earth” is an un-true item, for which people are likely to know the actual truth).

Their results show that the illusion of truth effect worked just as strongly for known as for unknown items, suggesting that prior knowledge won’t prevent repetition from swaying our judgements of plausibility.

To cover all bases, the researchers performed one study in which the participants were asked to rate how true each statement seemed on a six-point scale, and one where they just categorised each fact as “true” or “false”. Repetition pushed the average item up the six-point scale, and increased the odds that a statement would be categorised as true. For statements that were actually fact or fiction, known or unknown, repetition made them all seem more believable.

At first this looks like bad news for human rationality, but – and I can’t emphasise this strongly enough – when interpreting psychological science, you have to look at the actual numbers.

What Fazio and colleagues actually found, is that the biggest influence on whether a statement was judged to be true was… whether it actually was true. The repetition effect couldn’t mask the truth. With or without repetition, people were still more likely to believe the actual facts as opposed to the lies.

This shows something fundamental about how we update our beliefs – repetition has a power to make things sound more true, even when we know differently, but it doesn’t over-ride that knowledge

The next question has to be, why might that be? The answer is to do with the effort it takes to being rigidly logical about every piece of information you hear. If every time you heard something you assessed it against everything you already knew, you’d still be thinking about breakfast at supper-time. Because we need to make quick judgements, we adopt shortcuts – heuristics which are right more often than wrong. Relying on how often you’ve heard something to judge how truthful something feels is just one strategy. Any universe where truth gets repeated more often than lies, even if only 51% vs 49% will be one where this is a quick and dirty rule for judging facts.

If repetition was the only thing that influenced what we believed we’d be in trouble, but it isn’t. We can all bring to bear more extensive powers of reasoning, but we need to recognise they are a limited resource. Our minds are prey to the illusion of truth effect because our instinct is to use short-cuts in judging how plausible something is. Often this works. Sometimes it is misleading.

Once we know about the effect we can guard against it. Part of this is double-checking why we believe what we do – if something sounds plausible is it because it really is true, or have we just been told that repeatedly? This is why scholars are so mad about providing references – so we can track the origin on any claim, rather than having to take it on faith.

But part of guarding against the illusion is the obligation it puts on us to stop repeating falsehoods. We live in a world where the facts matter, and should matter. If you repeat things without bothering to check if they are true, you are helping to make a world where lies and truth are easier to confuse. So, please, think before you repeat.

Man gets chopstick lodged in penis

Published November 11, 2016
FoxNews.com

A man stuck a metal chopstick up his penis after seeing blood in his urine. (Asia Wire)

A man who was too shy to approach a doctor about blood in his urine attempted to identify the cause of his illness at home by inserting a stainless-steel chopstick into his penis. The man, identified as Chen, was then forced to undergo surgery to remove the 7-inch long object after he rammed it so far into his gentials that he could not remove it, Asia Wire reported.

Chen reportedly told doctors he thought his urethra was broken, so he inserted the chopstick to investigate. Scans at the hospital showed that the chopstick had reached the man’s rectal wall, Asia Wire reported. Doctors said if it had been pushed any further upward it could have proved fatal.

Doctors successfully removed the chopstick from his penis and Chen, who resides in Hagzhou City’s Uhang District, in the capital of East China’s Zhejiang Province, is recovering in the hospital.

The report did not indicate whether he would suffer any long-term damage.

Donald Trump’s win may have been predicted centuries ago
By Alison Maloney, The Sun

It wasn’t just the Simpsons that saw Donald Trump’s victory coming – Nostradamus nailed it too, according to conspiracy theorists.

They also believe that the 16th century oracle predicted the election will lead to the end of the world.

Donald Trump snatched the presidency in a surprise victory on Tuesday – 16 years after The Simpsons joked about it.

Nostradamus – who many believe to be a prophet – wrote: “The great shameless, audacious bawler. He will be elected governor of the army: The boldness of his contention.

“The bridge broken, the city faint from fear.”

Huge Gravity Assisted Object Falls From The Sky

A large cylindrical object, believed to be part of a Chinese space rocket, fell from the sky and landed on a jade mine in the state of Kachin, Myanmar. The object reportedly bounced 50m in the air before coming to a rest.

“Every local thought it was the explosion of heavy artillery,” villager Ko Maung Myo told the Myanmar Times. The object, measuring 3.7m by 1.2m, reportedly made a sound similar to a large explosion when it hit the ground, sending locals into a panic.

Soros and Clintons Launch Purple Revolution
User Image

romans
User Image

No sooner had Trump been declared the 45th president of the United States, Soros-funded political operations launched their activities to disrupt Trump during Obama’s lame-duck period and thereafter. The swiftness of the Purple Revolution is reminiscent of the speed at which protesters hit the streets of Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in two Orange Revolutions sponsored by Soros, one in 2004 and the other, ten years later, in 2014.

As the Clintons were embracing purple in New York, street demonstrations, some violent, all coordinated by the Soros-funded Moveon.org and «Black Lives Matter», broke out in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Oakland, Nashville, Cleveland, Washington, Austin, Seattle, Philadelphia, Richmond, St. Paul, Kansas City, Omaha, San Francisco, and some 200 other cities across the United States.

The Soros-financed Russian singing group «Pussy Riot» released on YouTube an anti-Trump music video titled «Make America Great Again». The video went «viral» on the Internet. The video, which is profane and filled with violent acts, portrays a dystopian Trump presidency. Following the George Soros/Gene Sharp script to a tee, Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova called for anti-Trump Americans to turn their anger into art, particularly music and visual art. The use of political graffiti is a popular Sharp tactic. The street protests and anti-Trump music and art were the first phase of Soros’s Purple Revolution in America.

President-elect Trump is facing a two-pronged attack by his opponents. One, led by entrenched neo-con bureaucrats, including former Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency director Michael Hayden, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, and Bush family loyalists are seeking to call the shots on who Trump appoints to senior national security, intelligence, foreign policy, and defense positions in his administration. These neo-Cold Warriors are trying to convince Trump that he must maintain the Obama aggressiveness and militancy toward Russia, China, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other countries. The second front arrayed against Trump is from Soros-funded political groups and media. This second line of attack is a propaganda war, utilizing hundreds of anti-Trump newspapers, web sites, and broadcasters, that will seek to undermine public confidence in the Trump administration from its outset.

One of Trump’s political advertisements, released just prior to Election Day, stated that George Soros, Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs chief executive officer Lloyd Blankfein, are all part of «a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities». Soros and his minions immediately and ridiculously attacked the ad as «anti-Semitic». President Trump should be on guard against those who his campaign called out in the ad and their colleagues. Soros’s son, Alexander Soros, called on Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband Jared Kushner, to publicly disavow Trump. Soros’s tactics not only seek to split apart nations but also families. Trump must be on guard against the current and future machinations of George Soros, including his Purple Revolution.

Physicists just discovered a second state of liquid water

14 NOV 2016

It’s one of the most fundamental compounds on Earth, and it makes up roughly 60 percent of the human body, and yet water is turning out to be stranger than we could have ever imagined.

Researchers have been investigating the physical properties of water, and found that when it’s heated to between 40 and 60 degrees Celsius, it hits a 'crossover temperature', and appears to start switching between two different states of liquid.

FSU's MagLab creates world's strongest magnet


Byron Dobson , Democrat senior writer
November 13, 2016

Hybrid magnet reaches full force of 36 tesla


It didn’t set off dazzling fireworks displays or illuminating scoreboards, but a recent research breakthrough at the MagLab likely drew high-fives from scientists around the world.

Researchers at the Florida State University-based National High Magnetic Field Laboratory have built “the strongest magnet in the world” for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. The discovery is a major advancement in the study of molecular structures in proteins and materials.

The 33-ton magnet built at the Innovation Park site, reached 36 Telsa Tuesday, according to FSU. Known as a series-connected hybrid (SCH) magnet, it is expected to be a research wonder for biologists, chemists and physicist for years to come.

“It will be used as a world-record magnet for at least the next decade,” said Tim Cross, who oversees NMR research at the MagLab. “It will be attracting people from all over the world to Tallahassee and Florida State University.

“This is great news for FSU and our town.”

Of course, a discovery of this magnitude takes time. In this case, according to researchers, it took nearly 10 years, more than 120,000 person-hours and $18.7 million from the National Science Foundation and the state of Florida.

“In order to generate the magnetic field, power needs to be injected into the magnet,” Cross said. “This is a lot of power; 14 megawatts of power. We did it very cautiously. I think I saw 10 different people in the room with laptops. On Tuesday, it made it to 36 Tesla. The previous week, we had been getting closer and closer. I think we hit 32 Tesla.”

Mark Bird, director of magnetic science and technology, has supervised 20 magnet projects at the lab. The new development is far-reaching, he said.

“This achievement reflects a tremendous amount of technology development," Bird said. He described the final product as “one of the most complicated magnets ever built at the MagLab, a testament to a great team working with great determination."

At 36 Tesla, the SCH is more than 40 percent stronger than the previous world-record NMR magnet (the MagLab's Keck magnet) and more than 50 percent more powerful than the highest field high-resolution NMR magnet, a 23.5 tesla system in Lyon, France, according to researchers.

In NMR, scientists use magnets and radio waves to locate a specific element (commonly hydrogen) in proteins and other samples, which helps them figure out those complex structures. A powerful technique in health research, scientists use it, for example, to pinpoint a virus' vulnerability to drugs, according to a university release.

Existing NMR magnets are limited to locating just a handful of elements, notably hydrogen, carbon and nitrogen. The SCH's 36-tesla field could revolutionize NMR because it significantly boosts the instrument's sensitivity, expanding the menu of elements scientists can see.

"There's going to be a real increase in the reach of NMR into the periodic table," Cross said. "So we're going to be able to look at many more elements than we've really been able to in the past."

An advancement in research is the fact that the SCH magnet will allow researchers to observe oxygen, along with zinc, copper, aluminum, nickel and gadolinium — all important materials in research.

"Oxygen is where so much biological chemistry takes place," Cross said, "and until the SCH, we've just not been able to look at it."

Mightier magnet will increase FSU's research capacities


Byron Dobson , Democrat senior writer
November 13, 2016

Materials, medicines and building construction will benefit from MagLab research

Each year, an estimated 1,500 scientists from around the world visit Tallahassee to conduct research at the MagLab at Florida State University.

And while most of the research is tedious, exacting and often complicated, the end result will have a direct impact on future health treatments, what materials are purchased and even what medicines are prescribed.

Senior writer Byron Dobson asked Tim Cross, a biochemistry professor at FSU, to discuss some practical applications as a result of this week’s tesla record.

Q. Why is this an important development to our everyday lives?

A: This very high field magnet, that has been designed to generate a stable and homogenous magnetic field, will be used to provide enhanced pharmaceuticals, to enhance chemical catalysts for producing plastics and many other materials used in our daily lives.

The processes for making specialized cements used in high-pressure oil wells or in the construction of skyscrapers will be studied and enhanced. How viruses function during infections and how drug resistance is achieved will be studied leading to new ways to defeat viral infections and drug resistance.

This magnet will allow us for the first time to explore the chemistry of oxygen and sulfur atoms by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance or NMR - this is the parent technology for our MRI imaging that is used in our hospitals.

In a sense what we do is to record an image of molecules, but it goes beyond that to understand how molecules function, how they achieve the properties they have, such as our pharmaceuticals.

For decades we have been using NMR technology in chemistry and biochemistry laboratories, such as those in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at FSU and in the MagLab’s NMR and MRI User Program that attracts researchers from all over the world to our facilities. Until now most of those studies have focused on carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen atoms in molecules, materials and proteins, but much of the important chemistry that these molecules, materials and proteins carries out involves atoms that have been difficult to study by commercial instrumentation. This new high field magnet and the instrumentation we have assembled for research using this magnet will allow us to routinely study the oxygens, the sulfur, the magnesium atoms and many more for the first time.

Q: Why is this significant for the Mag Lab and for Florida State University’s quest to become a Top 25 public university?

A: The federal grants used to design, engineer and construct this magnet are grants to Florida State University and some of the resources to perform scientific research in this magnet are also grants to FSU that have and will help move FSU toward a top 25 university.

Users for this magnet will be drawn from all over the world to use this new 36T magnet and the unique capabilities we are developing and implementing on this magnet so that this magnet stays at the scientific forefront for more than a decade.

Q: Can you put in simple terms what a hybrid magnet is and what research it will enhance?


A: This hybrid magnet is a combination of two different magnet technologies; one is a superconducting magnet technology and the other is a resistive magnet technology. The superconducting wires at very low temperature conduct electricity without resistance and provide a 14 Tesla background field with a bore diameter not dissimilar to that of an MRI instrument except at much stronger magnetic fields than those used in hospitals or in research facilities such as those in our medical community and at FSU that operate at 3 Tesla. The inner ‘coils’ of the magnet are resistive, meaning that as the power goes through them generating an additional 22 Tesla they generate resistance and need to be cooled by vast quantities of chilled and deionized water rushing through the magnet.

Q: How much of the design and construction work was done here in Innovation Park?


A: I believe the first discussions about this magnet began in 2001. The design and engineering was almost exclusively done in Innovation Park - some components such as the superconducting wire and the materials for the resistive portion of the magnet were purchased from outside of the MagLab, but the assembly, installation, and integration to the DC Power Supplies were done by folks at the Magnet Lab.

'Back to the Future' inspires solar nanotech-powered clothing

Date: November 14, 2016
Source: University of Central Florida

Marty McFly's self-lacing Nikes in Back to the Future Part II inspired a UCF scientist who has developed filaments that harvest and store the sun's energy -- and can be woven into textiles.

The breakthrough would essentially turn jackets and other clothing into wearable, solar-powered batteries that never need to be plugged in. It could one day revolutionize wearable technology, helping everyone from soldiers who now carry heavy loads of batteries to a texting-addicted teen who could charge his smartphone by simply slipping it in a pocket.

"That movie was the motivation," Associate Professor Jayan Thomas, a nanotechnology scientist at the University of Central Florida's NanoScience Technology Center, said of the film released in 1989. "If you can develop self-charging clothes or textiles, you can realize those cinematic fantasies -- that's the cool thing."

The research was published Nov. 11 in the academic journal Nature Communications.

Thomas already has been lauded for earlier ground-breaking research. Last year, he received an R&D 100 Award -- given to the top inventions of the year worldwide -- for his development of a cable that can not only transmit energy like a normal cable but also store energy like a battery. He's also working on semi-transparent solar cells that can be applied to windows, allowing some light to pass through while also harvesting solar power.

His new work builds on that research.

"The idea came to me: We make energy-storage devices and we make solar cells in the labs. Why not combine these two devices together?" Thomas said.

Thomas, who holds joint appointments in the College of Optics & Photonics and the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, set out to do just that.

Taking it further, he envisioned technology that could enable wearable tech. His research team developed filaments in the form of copper ribbons that are thin, flexible and lightweight. The ribbons have a solar cell on one side and energy-storing layers on the other.

Though more comfortable with advanced nanotechnology, Thomas and his team then bought a small, tabletop loom. After another UCF scientists taught them to use it, they wove the ribbons into a square of yarn.

The proof-of-concept shows that the filaments could be laced throughout jackets or other outwear to harvest and store energy to power phones, personal health sensors and other tech gadgets. It's an advancement that overcomes the main shortcoming of solar cells: The energy they produce must flow into the power grid or be stored in a battery that limits their portability.

"A major application could be with our military," Thomas said. "When you think about our soldiers in Iraq or Afghanistan, they're walking in the sun. Some of them are carrying more than 30 pounds of batteries on their bodies. It is hard for the military to deliver batteries to these soldiers in this hostile environment. A garment like this can harvest and store energy at the same time if sunlight is available."

There are a host of other potential uses, including electric cars that could generate and store energy whenever they're in the sun.

"That's the future. What we've done is demonstrate that it can be made," Thomas said. "It's going to be very useful for the general public and the military and many other applications."

“Not Dead Yet!” Medieval Medicine Beyond Monty Python

November 14, 2016
by Hanna Clutterbuck-Cook

Today’s author is Lucy Barnhouse, a Ph.D. candidate in the History Department of Fordham University, New York.

Her dissertation, which she will defend this winter, examines the effects of religious status on the development of hospitals in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, and the place of hospitals in the religious and social networks of late medieval cities in the central Rhineland. She has presented on medieval medical history for lay as well as academic audiences, and has been involved with the Footnoting History podcast for the last three years. You can follow her on Twitter at @SingingScholar.

Teaching medieval medicine to undergraduates with widely varying degrees of background knowledge on both medicine and the Middle Ages might seem like an unenviable task. I found it, though, to be one of my most rewarding pedagogical experiences. The medieval, as I’ve discovered, can often function as a safe space for students to explore new ideas and reexamine old ones. Largely unknown, and imagined as definitely Other, it provides room for thoughtful engagement with large issues that might elsewhere be treated as resolved. Discussing medieval hospitals, for instance, can enable students to discuss many questions with contemporary resonance, e.g. how do we access care? What are spaces and places of healthcare, and what do we expect from them? Who is involved in administering hospitals, and what are the implications of how such institutions are involved in other networks, religious or civic… or both?

Due in part to the interdisciplinary topic, and in part to an early morning time slot that accommodated the needs of students taking labs, the class was a remarkably vibrant mix of humanities and science majors. This enriched our experience immeasurably, as science majors were able to see things in the sources that I was not. Having class discussions led by teams of students proved particularly fruitful. Students proved very ready to share their diverse experiences—and cultural expectations—of medicine, and to work through difficulties and uncertainties together. Such efficient functioning of the class as a body (pun intended) was, I like to think, facilitated by a personality quiz designed to diagnose humoral complexions! As a class, we turned out to be fairly evenly divided between the sanguine and the melancholic, with a few outliers. This assessment led to a lively discussion about the logic or illogic of diagnostic observation, the value of experience, and the dangers of prejudice.

Examining medieval ways of conceptualizing health and evaluating medical practitioners did not come without challenges or surprises. I’m sure that several of my former students still think of Willibald, an eighth-century bishop who smuggled balsam out of the Holy Land, as a drug dealer. But even the rather frustrating source discussion that established this consensus provided an illuminating challenge to my own categories of thought. I realize that, even to historians of medicine, the medieval might seem dauntingly unfamiliar. But the Black Death can provide an effective opening to conversations about compassion fatigue. Getting students to discuss how race and gender affect how bodies are imagined and feared is made easier by engaging with thirteenth-century examples. With diverse and visibly changing cultures of medicine and health, the Middle Ages make a great place to introduce students to the kinds of questions typical of work in the medical humanities.

Got Milk? People Living 9,000 Years Ago Did, Ceramic Pots Show

By Laura Geggel, Senior Writer
November 17, 2016 07:06am

Humankind has gulped down mouthfuls of milk and other dairy products from animals, such as sheep, goats and cows, for at least 9,000 years, a new study suggests.

Researchers made the discovery after analyzing and dating more than 500 prehistoric pottery vessels discovered in the northern Mediterranean region, which includes the modern-day countries of Spain France, Italy, Greece and Turkey. During each examination, they looked for remnants of milk, which indicated that people had used animal dairy products.

The scientists also examined the ceramic pots for residue from animal fat and other evidence, such as skeletal remains, that would suggest Neolithic people slaughtered domesticated animals for meat; they examined these bony remains from 82 sites around the Mediterranean dating from the seventh to fifth millennia B.C.

Dairying was popular in some, but not all, northern Mediterranean areas, the researchers found.

The eastern and western parts of the northern Mediterranean, including parts of modern-day Spain, France and Turkey, commonly practiced dairying, but northern Greece did not, they said. Rather, "lipids from pots and the animal bones tell the same story: Meat production [in northern Greece] was the main activity, not dairying," they said.

The new analysis supports the team's earlier work showing "that milk use was highly regionalized in the Near East in the seventh millennium B.C.," study researchers Mélanie Roffet-Salque and Richard Evershed, chemists at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, said in a statement. "This new multidisciplinary study further emphasizes the existence of diverse use of animal products in the northern Mediterranean Neolithic."

The varying landscape in the northern Mediterranean likely influenced what sort of animals the Neolithic people domesticated, the researchers added.

"For example, rugged terrains are more suitable for sheep and goats, and open well-watered landscapes are better suited for cattle," said study researchers Rosalind Gillis and Jean-Denis Vigne, archaeozoologists at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in the National Museum of Natural History in Paris.

Ancient milk

Dairying began with the onset of agriculture, and likely helped early farmers, said the study's lead researcher, Cynthianne Spiteri, a junior professor of archaeometry at the University of Tübingen in Germany, who conducted the residue analysis as part of her doctorate in archaeology at the University of York in the United Kingdom.

"[Milk] is likely to have played an important role in providing a nourishing and storable food product, which was able to sustain early farmers, and consequently, the spread of farming in the western Mediterranean," Spiteri said.

However, more research is needed to verify that Neolithic people consumed milk products. This could be accomplished by analyzing ancient human skeletons, said study researcher Oliver Craig, a professor of archaeology at the University of York.

"Despite this deficiency, our research shows that they certainly exploited milk because we have found organic remnants in the pots they were using," Craig said. "This implies they were transforming milk into dairy products, such as yogurt and cheese, to remove the lactose," which some people are unable to digest, he said.

"We know that much of the world's population today are still intolerant to lactose, so it is very important to know at what point people in the past were exposed to it and how long they have had to adapt to it," Craig said.

The study was published online Nov. 14 in the journal the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Mysterious white plane spotted circling Denver metro area

Published November 17, 2016
FoxNews.com

A white plane spotted over the Denver metro area Wednesday morning left many wondering where it came from and where it was going.

The Denver Channel reported that the flight named IRON99 was flying from California and it was heading over the Pacific Ocean until it veered back toward the west and eventually over Denver.

As the flight approached the city, it began circling and flight tracking showed the plane making an oval over the city. It made a few loops and then took off for Oklahoma without any notion of it stopping.

Officials at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora told the station that it never checked in with radar towers and didn’t land at the base despite circling over it a few times. Denver International Airport officials also told the station that the flight.

According to the station, northeastern U.S. military bases give out the title of IRON to military flights and it usually reserved for T-38 aircraft, which the station says are usually black. The particular IRON99 flight only communicated with the U.S. Army and there was no public communications record available.

U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Strategic Command neither confirmed or denied the flight existed or the location of where the flight was seen, the Denver Channel reported. The North American Aerospace Defense Command said there were only two “high-profile” flights in the air at the time.

NASA's live feed shut down after UFO seen from International Space Station

CLAIMS a speeding UFO was filmed hurtling over the Earth from the International Space Station (ISS) — before the NASA live feed was mysteriously blacked out - are going viral online.

By Jon Austin
PUBLISHED: 15:50, Fri, Nov 18, 2016

News and conspiracy theory websites are reporting on a video which apparently shows a small bright dot gliding through space on the group's livestream.

In the video, uploaded to YouTube by channel ColdPyro, the footage cuts off abruptly, going to a grey and then blue screen, with a message from NASA there were technical problems.

The message says: "Please stand by. The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station."

But, conspiracy theorists claim the sudden shut down was an attempt by NASA to prevent viewers seeing the UFO.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Engineering_of_Consent

The United States has become a small room where a single whisper is magnified thousands of times.
There are two divisions in media: commercial and organized group information systems.
Today’s leaders have become more remote physically from the public, yet, at the same time, the public has much greater familiarity with these leaders through the system of modern communications...Increased influence of mass media is due to widespread and enormously rapid diffusion of literacy.
With the aid of technicians in the field who have specialized in utilizing the channels of communications, [some leaders] have been able to achieve purposefully and scientifically what we have termed "the engineering of consent"..."

I am starting to wonder about you guys..cheesy

I just maade a post at the oped news..a pleasant progressive, with some exceptions, that had an unflattering piece on Der Trump...That touches on some of the neurolinguistic programming that has been at play..for Decades..
Scathing opinion..what is one to think?
The father of General Semantics wrote
http://maps.thefullwiki.org/Alfred_Korzybski
It is often said that Korzybski opposed the use of the verb "to be," an unfortunate exaggeration (see 'Criticisms' below). He thought that certain uses of the verb "to be", called the "is of identity" and the "is of predication", were faulty in structure, e.g., a statement such as, "Joe is a fool" (said of a person named 'Joe' who has done something that we regard as foolish). In Korzybski's system, one's assessment of Joe belongs to a higher order of abstraction than Joe himself. Korzybski's remedy was to deny identity; in this example, to be continually aware that 'Joe' is not what we call him. We find Joe not in the verbal domain, the world of words, but the nonverbal domain (the two, he said, amount to different orders of abstraction). This was expressed in Korzybski's most famous premise, "the map is not the territory". Note that this premise uses the phrase "is not", a form of "to be"; this and many other examples show that he did not intend to abandon "to be" as such. In fact, he expressly said that there were no structural problems with the verb "to be" when used as an auxiliary verb or when used to state existence or location. It was even 'OK' sometimes to use the faulty forms of the verb 'to be,' as long as one was aware of their structural limitations.

I would therefore call the Authors article a faulty abstraction as everything we have observed has been a success ..from his building projects to his election win despite the authors prior articles to the contrary.

We are asked as in the experiments by Korzybski to sample the cookies , only to find they were dog cookies. ie..we ate the words, the packaging, tasted the words, before we bit....
I believe we have had enough of that from MSM and these experts who have been so wrong for so long.

I LOVE UFOCASEBOOKERS cheesy

StrangeHistory.net

This experience from early twentieth-century Canada combines an unlikely set of the criminal and paranormal elements: sailing, wrecking and fairies. We are in Labrador and Beach has previously referenced this source – the autobiography of a local doctor – in a sasquatch post.


"On one occasion, as late in the fall we were creeping up the Straits of Belle Isle in the only motor boat then in use there, our new toy broke down, and with a strong onshore wind we gradually drifted in toward the high cliffs. It was a heavy boat, and though we rowed our best we realized that we must soon be on the rocks, where a strong surf was breaking. So we lashed all our lines together and cast over our anchors, hoping to find bottom. Alas, the water was too deep. Darkness came on and the prospect of a long, weary night struggling for safety made us thrill with excitement. Suddenly a schooner’s lights, utterly unexpected, loomed up, coming head on toward us. Like Saul and his asses, we no longer cared about our craft so long as we escaped. At once we lashed the hurricane light on the boat-hook and waved it to and fro on high to make sure of attracting attention. To our dismay the schooner, now almost in hail, incontinently tacked, and, making for the open sea, soon left us far astern. We fired our guns, we shouted in unison, we lit flares. All to no purpose. Surely it must have been a phantom vessel sent to mock us. Suddenly our amateur engineer, who had all the time been working away at the scrap-heap of parts into which he had dismembered the motor, got a faint kick out of one cylinder a second a third, then two, three, and then a solitary one again. It was exactly like a case of blocked heart. But it was enough with our oars to make us move slowly ahead. By much stimulating and watchful nursing we limped along on the one cylinder, and about midnight found ourselves alongside the phantom ship, which we had followed into the harbour ‘afar off.’ Angry enough at their desertion of us in distress, we went aboard just to tell them what we thought of their behaviour. But their explanation entirely disarmed us."

So far so strange, but listen to what the local fishers have to say.

‘Them cliffs is haunted,’ said the skipper. ‘More’n one light’s been seen there than ever any man lit. When us saw you’se light flashing round right in on the cliffs, us knowed it was no place for Christian men that time o’ night. Us guessed it was just fairies or devils trying to toll us in.’ [270-1]

The coupling of ‘fairies’ and ‘demons’ might seem strange but in the twentieth century the fairies of Atlantic Canada were by far the worst of the fairies of the western world: running off with babies, kidnapping people lost in the wilderness, whipping schoolchildren who wandered into their swamps… Still, Beach knows of no other reference to wrecking fairies: drbeachcombing AT yahoo DOT com

Solar Mystery near Sun




A perplexing sphere spotted on images recently taken by NASA’s pair of satellites watching the Sun had some conspiracy theorists in a frenzy, suggesting it was a UFO. The real answer is a lot more straight forward, however.

The images dated November 17, 2016 can be found on NASA’s Stereo Science Center website with “Ahead HI1” Telescope view selected.

The series of frames, which lack annotation explaining the phenomenon, sparked a number of online theories, including a video posted by the UFOMania channel on YouTube.

Pedestrians catch child after balcony fall

Published: 21 Nov 2016 11:28 GMT+01:00

A five-year-old girl from Innsbruck miraculously survived a ten-metre fall from a roof terrace with no serious injuries - thanks to two quick-thinking pedestrians who saw her hanging from the balcony shortly before she fell, and turned their jackets into an improvised trampoline with which to catch her.

Police said the two men, a 20-year-old Algerian and a 21-year-old Moroccan, were walking past the house where the child lives on Sunday afternoon, when they happened to look up and saw the little girl clinging onto the edge of a balcony.

A fall from such a height would likely cause serious injury, or even death. They quickly took off their jackets and tied them together to form a cloth with which to catch her - and moments later they were able to break her fall.

Police officer Hubert Thonhauser from the Pradl district of Innsbruck said that thanks to the two men the little girl “only had a bite wound on her lip” and that they had saved her from possible death. She was taken to hospital in Innsbruck for a medical examination. Police say they are not sure how she was able to get out onto the terrace, but that she had been left at home alone.

Your phone is so gross

Your phone is supergross — so disgusting that researchers can take a swab off your smartphone's screen and determine things such as what kind of beauty products you use, what you eat, where you've been and what kind of meds you take.

Reporting in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers found such secrets as antifungal skin creams and hair loss treatments in the chemical residue on 39 volunteers' smartphone screens. They were also able to identify herbs and spices from the participants' diets, antidepressants, sunscreen and caffeine.

That was a molecular analysis, but biological analysis of the microbes on phones can reveal even more. First, cellphones carry more germs than toilet seats, researchers say — after all, they're generally cleaned less often. The bacteria on phones match the bacteria on their owners' skin, according to 2014 research. In that study, researchers found more than 7,000 different types of bacteria on 17 smartphones.

Luckily, most of the bacteria found on the phones were harmless. People's skin "microbiome" has more in common with their own phone's bacterial load than that of other people's phones. (Sounds like Touch ID isn't the only unique key for your phone.) The researchers suggested that phones could be used to monitor people's health and to see whether they're carrying infectious diseases.

Kids Who Died in Chattanooga School Bus Crash Include 3 Fourth-Graders

By Michael Edison Hayden
Nov 22, 2016, 7:49 AM ET

A school bus driver has been arrested in connection to a crash that killed five young children in Tennessee.

Of the five deaths, interim superintendent Kirk Kelly of the Hamilton County Department of Education told reporters this morning, three of the children were in fourth-grade, one was in first-grade and the other was a kindergartner, officials said.

Four of the five were girls.

Six students also remain in intensive care, but details had not been released.

The bus was carrying 37 children from Woodmore Elementary School in Chattanooga, ranging from kindergarten to fifth-grade, when it crashed into a tree at around 3:30 in the afternoon Monday, officials said.

Donald Trump’s media summit was a ‘f−−−ing firing squad’

By Emily Smith and Daniel Halper
November 21, 2016 | 5:12pm

Donald Trump scolded media big shots during an off-the-record Trump Tower sitdown on Monday, sources told The Post.

“It was like a f−−−ing firing squad,” one source said of the encounter.

“Trump started with [CNN chief] Jeff Zucker and said, ‘I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,’ ” the source said.

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing-down,” the source added.

A second source confirmed the fireworks.

“The meeting took place in a big boardroom and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks,” the other source said.

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful, dishonest media who got it all wrong.’ He addressed everyone in the room, calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was [a] network of liars,” the source said.

“Trump didn’t say [NBC reporter] Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate — which was Martha Raddatz, who was also in the room.”

The stunned reporters tried to get a word in edgewise to discuss access to a Trump administration.

“[‘CBS Good Morning’ co-host Gayle] King did not stand up, but asked some question, ‘How do you propose we the media work with you?’ Chuck Todd asked some pretty pointed questions. David Muir asked, ‘How are you going to cope living in DC while your family is in NYC?’ It was a horrible meeting.”

Trump spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway told reporters the gathering went well.

“Excellent meetings with the top executives of the major networks,” she said during a gaggle in the lobby of Trump Tower. “Pretty unprecedented meeting we put together in two days.”

The meeting was off the record, meaning the participants agreed not to talk about the substance of the conversations.

The hour-long session included top execs from network and cable news channels. Among the attendees were NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd; ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz; CBS’ Norah O’Donnell, John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and King; Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace and Suzanne Scott; MSNBC’s Phil Griffin, and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

Arthur Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times, plans to meet with Trump on Tuesday.

There was no immediate comment from the Trump Team.

Norwegians in the Wild.

I just got a chance to catch Norwegian women and men in the wild. Note that the male of the species appear mild and docile. The female appears dominant and band like the Hyena of the African deltas with other females. If they find the males unsuitable they collectively yell at edifices where males are working, as those with jobs are held in high esteem. Those without may join in the noise making and growl along, but don't seem to attract them. Somehow the females are able to discern via their incredible scent tracking who is the best provider as well as their proximal locations
No Animals used in this production were injured.


Its apparent that the Males and females in the building caves were not interested.
Norwegian leftists SCREAM at the office of Integration
Minister Sylvi Listhaug, after she called them a bunch of whiners - which they had to prove. Oslo, Nov. 23, 2016.

mmigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug, a member of the Progress Party, has been labeled the female Donald Trump. Her viral success on Facebook has led to a mass triggering of leftists.

The outrage was sparked when Listhaug celebrated a New York Times article that listed Norway as the “most determined to send rejected refugees back to where they came from.”

This prompted left-wing actor Kristoffer Joner to launch a campaign against Listhaug, calling her “vicious” and “reprehensible” for expressing pleasure over Norway’s strict migrant policy. Joner encouraged people to make donations to the pro-migrant Norwegian organization for asylum seekers (NOAS).

However, it subsequently emerged that the campaign had actually been initiated by an advertising agency, leading to donors feeling they had been tricked by Joner.

Listhaug responded by suggesting that leftists should instead have given money to “helping refugees in their own areas” rather than helping them get to Europe. She then labeled her critics “a bunch of whiners”.

In their infinite wisdom, leftists then thought it would be a good idea to visit Listhaug’s officers and literally act like a bunch of whiners. Video footage shows them screaming and yelling like escaped mental patients, while others appear to be howling like dogs.

“When the leftists run out of reasonable arguments, they go full retard and turn to this,” comments Speisa.

Someone Built a Working Four-Bit Computer Out of Cardboard and Marbles

Written by
Michael Byrne

November 26, 2016 // 10:00 AM EST

Computers aren't magic. Underneath your fingertips right now are wires and logic gates. Switches. A 1 becomes a 0; two 1s become a 1; a 1 and a 0 become a 0; a 1 and a 0 become a 1; two 0s become a 1. Simply, different sorts of gates take on/off signals or pairs of on/off signals and emit more on/off signals in response. The most basic idea of logical computation and binary arithmetic goes back to Leibniz in 1705.

You don't need electricity to implement binary operations, though it certainly helps. All you really need is a way to ensure that somehow the binary inputs to the gates below (the As and Bs) result in the correct binary output (the X). When you have that, you have the materials for a computer and can theoretically do anything.

For those that remain doubtful, Github user lapinozz is here to the rescue with a 4-bit computer constructed out of cardboard and marbles. It's pretty amazing:

Japan plans supercomputer to leap into technology future

By Kentaro Hamada | TOKYO

Japan plans to build the world's fastest-known supercomputer in a bid to arm the country's manufacturers with a platform for research that could help them develop and improve driverless cars, robotics and medical diagnostics.

The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry will spend 19.5 billion yen ($173 million) on the previously unreported project, a budget breakdown shows, as part of a government policy to get back Japan's mojo in the world of technology. The country has lost its edge in many electronic fields amid intensifying competition from South Korea and China, home to the world's current best-performing machine.

In a move that is expected to vault Japan to the top of the supercomputing heap, its engineers will be tasked with building a machine that can make 130 quadrillion calculations per second - or 130 petaflops in scientific parlance - as early as next year, sources involved in the project told Reuters.

At that speed, Japan's computer would be ahead of China's Sunway Taihulight that is capable of 93 petaflops.

"As far as we know, there is nothing out there that is as fast," said Satoshi Sekiguchi, a director general at Japan's ‎National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, where the computer will be built.

The push to return to the vanguard comes at a time of growing nostalgia for the heyday of Japan's technological prowess, which has dwindled since China overtook it as the world's second-biggest economy.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has called for companies, bureaucrats and the political class to work more closely together so Japan can win in robotics, batteries, renewable energy and other new and growing markets.

DEEP LEARNING

In the area of supercomputing, Japan's aim is to use ultra-fast calculations to accelerate advances in artificial intelligence (AI), such as "deep learning" technology that works off algorithms which mimic the human brain's neural pathways, to help computers perform new tasks and analyze scores of data.

Recent achievements in this area have come from Google's DeepMind AI program, AlphaGo, which in March beat South Korean professional Lee Seedol in the ancient board game of Go.

Applications include helping companies improve driverless vehicles by allowing them to analyze huge troves of visual traffic data, or it could help factories improve automation.

China uses the Sunway Taihulight for weather forecasting, pharmaceutical research, industrial design, among other things.

Japan's new supercomputer could help tap medical records to develop new services and applications, Sekiguchi said.

The supercomputer will be made available for a fee to Japan's corporations, who now outsource data crunching to foreign firms such as Google and Microsoft, Sekiguchi and others involved in the project said.

The new computer has been dubbed ABCI, an acronym for AI Bridging Cloud Infrastructure. Bidding for the project has begun and will close on Dec. 8.

Fujitsu Ltd, the builder of the fastest Japanese supercomputer to date - the Oakforest-PACS, capable of 13.6 petaflops, declined to say if it would bid for the project.

The company has, however, said it is keen to be involved in supercomputer development.

Researchers claim time travel is possible

By George Harrison

November 27, 2016

There are multiple timelines playing out in parallel universes, according to a team of researchers.

The sensational claim was made by a team of physicists, who believe that the parallel universes can all affect one another.

Professor Howard Wiseman and Dr. Michael Hall, from Griffith University’s Center for Quantum Dynamics, claim that the idea of parallel universes is more than just science fiction.

Fellow researcher Dr. Dirk-Andre Deckert, from the University of California, helped further the researchers’ theory, which goes against almost all conventional understanding of space and time.

If there really are multiple, interacting universes, then it would be possible for time travellers to visit Earth, and every imaginable scenario would be played out in a parallel universe at some point.

The team’s “Many Interacting Worlds Theory” provides a whole new perspective on the ideas underpinning quantum theory, a notoriously complex strand of physics.

Professor Wiseman said: “The idea of parallel universes in quantum mechanics has been around since 1957.

The case of the desperately ill spy and the untraceable poison

It sounds like the stuff of Bond films, but 10 years ago the tragic case of ‘Edwin Carter’ presented doctors and police with exactly this scenario

On the afternoon of 3 November 2006 Edwin Carter arrived at Barnet Hospital, London, in an ambulance. He was vomiting, had bloody diarrhoea, and was in a lot of pain. He had been like this for two days. His own doctor said it looked like typhoid, but it wasn’t typhoid. Staff at the hospital diagnosed gastroenteritis and started a course of antibiotics.

The man’s condition improved slightly, but there were puzzling discrepancies in his lab results. Someone suffering from a bacterial infection would be expected to have a high white blood cell count, as the body produces more of these cells to fight off the infection. In this case the white blood cell count was very low and decreasing. Perhaps this was a reaction to the antibiotics. Perhaps not.

Four days later, when her husband was still not making the expected recovery, Mrs Carter suggested poisoning. This sounded fantastical, and staff tried to reassure the couple, but wrote down in the patient’s notes: “Patient and wife concerned about intentional infection of patient, query poison?”

Diagnosing any disease or medical condition that is out of the ordinary is a considerable challenge for doctors. In the case of poison, some substances leave characteristic traces; others mimic some symptoms of natural disease. Untangling everything can be time-consuming and frustrating for medical staff, and is of course worst for the patient.

A week later, Carter’s condition was still not improving. Then on 11 November, his hair started to fall out. This is a symptom most people associate with chemotherapy treatments for cancer. But, it is also a classic sign of thallium poisoning. Thallium is a heavy metal, which in the form of a salt is readily absorbed into the body where it can inflict considerable damage, and if more than about one gram is ingested, can prove fatal.

Thallium poisonings are rare, but in the 1970s Graham Young used thallium salts to poison several of his work colleagues; two died. The police investigation and forensic test that were developed as a result of this case meant that toxicologists and medical staff had protocols for detecting and treating thallium poisoning. While doctors awaited test results, Carter was treated with the thallium antidote, Prussian blue.

While Carter showed some classic signs of thallium poisoning, other symptoms were worrying absent, such as painful pins and needles in the feet and hands, along with numbness. But thallium can present a wide range of symptoms, which is why it had taken the police some time to track down Graham Young in the 1970s.

Meanwhile, Carter’s platelets count was also worryingly low. In fact, he looked more and more like someone who was suffering from radiation sickness. A Geiger counter was brought in and run up and down Mr Carter’s body but registered nothing above the normal background levels.

Then the results from the thallium test came back. They were slightly, but not much, above normal environmental levels. The more tests that were carried out, and the more results that came back, the more confusing the picture became. Poison, a theory that remained unshakeable with Mr and Mrs Carter, started to look like a very real possibility. The police were brought in.

On 17 November, Carter was transferred to University College Hospital where he could receive more specialist care. The same day, two detectives arrived at his bedside and began questioning him. Almost nine hours of interviews were recorded over the following three days. Carter talked of meetings with Russian and Italian business partners and secret agents. It was all starting to sound like something out of a Bond film. Surely this was the stuff of fiction?

Except that sometimes fact can be more incredible than fiction. In 1978, London had been the location for a notorious assassination using poison. Georgi Markov, a Bulgarian dissident had a ricin-laced pellet fired into his thigh while he was standing on Waterloo Bridge. The assassination was alleged to have been carried out using a modified umbrella wielded by Bulgarian secret service agents with help from the KGB.

On 20 November 2006, just after his police interviews were concluded, Carter was moved to intensive care. His major organs were starting to fail. Still there was no diagnosis.

There were more tests. A litre of Carter’s urine was sent to medical staff at the Atomic Weapons Establishment for testing. On 23 November the results came back: polonium210 had been detected.

Six hours later, Carter went into cardiac arrest and despite the best efforts of medical staff, he could not be revived. Mr Edwin Carter, the name adopted by Alexander Litvinenko when he first arrived in the UK, was declared dead. Alexander Litvinenko became the first confirmed victim of deliberate poisoning by polonium210.

No wonder medical staff struggled with a diagnosis when there were no known cases to refer to. Even when the poison was identified, it was such an obscure substance that few people in the world knew anything about it, let alone what it would do to a human body.

http://itapunta.com/2016/11/30/what-are-these-weird-jelly-like-creatures-on-the-beach/
HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Nov. 30 (UPI) — Thousands of mysterious “jelly-like” creatures washed up on a California beach, baffling local residents.

Resident Don Coursey told CBS Los Angeles he had never seen anything like the strange creatures in his 30 years living on Huntington beach.

“It feels like Jello,” Coursey told KTLA. “If you were a little kid, you’d love to have something like this so you can drop down your sister’s shirt.”

Cal State Long Beach marine biologist Bruno Pernet said the mysterious creatures likely washed ashore following stormy weather in the area last weekend.

UC Irvine associate professor at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Matt Bracken told the OC Register the invertebrates were likely “pelagic tunicates” also known as salps.

“These marine invertebrates look sort of like jellyfish, but they are actually more closely related to vertebrates [e.g., humans] than to other invertebrates,” he said. “They occasionally bloom off the California coast.”

Huntington Marine Safety Lt. Claude Panis, who has worked as a lifeguard at the beach for nearly four decades, said other strange occurrences including an influx of stingrays had begun to take place at the beach as a potential result of El Nino.

“There’s all kinds of weird things happening,” he said. “It’s just strange.”

Russia seeks answers on ISS cargo ship crash

December 2, 2016

Russian investigators on Friday were probing the crash shortly after launch of an unmanned spaceship taking cargo to the International Space Station, focusing on the Soyuz carrier rocket.

Russia's space agency said the Progress ship—carrying tons of food and equipment as well as gifts for the ISS crew of six—was lost minutes after launch Thursday evening in "an abnormal situation."

The Russian agency said a state commission would probe the failure but did not say whether the timing of future launches would be affected.

It said the spaceship burned up in the atmosphere above the remote Tuva region of Siberia. The region's emergency ministry said Friday that no debris had been found.

Reports on Friday pointed to a possible problem with the Soyuz carrier rocket—used in both manned and unmanned launches—which has been blamed for two previous failed Progress launches.

The Kommersant daily cited a source close to the Roscosmos space agency as saying the investigation would focus on the engine of the third-stage rocket, which is the last to fall away after launch.

If the glitch was caused by negligence, the makers could face disciplinary action, the source said.

TASS state news agency cited space industry sources as saying the combustion chambers in the engine may have burnt out, possibly due to defective assembly.

The investigation could delay the launch of the next Progress cargo ship, set for February 2, it reported.

If the engine is found to be faulty, all those currently installed in Soyuz rockets will have to be retested, delaying future launches, another source told RIA Novosti news agency.

In April 2015, a failed Progress launch was also blamed on a problem with the Soyuz rocket, a space workhorse dating back to the Cold War era.

Because the same type of rocket is used for manned ships, Russia put all space travel on hold for nearly three months, and a group of astronauts had to spend an extra month on the ISS.

The First UFO Sighting Report In America: Puritans See A Giant light

Posted on 06 December 2016

When people talk about the first UFO sighting in America, most automatically think back to the 1947 Roswell crash or the so-called Battle of Los Angeles during World War II (1942), but many would be surprised to know that sightings of UFOs have been going on for centuries.

In fact, according to History.com, the first UFO sighting report in what would one day become the United States was made by none other than the founder and governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, John Winthrop. The leader of the Puritan colony kept a journal wherein he recorded the goings-on of his fellow colonists. And in his entry for March 1, 1639, Winthrop retold an “unusual” tale that had been making the rounds in the colony earlier in the year.

According to Winthrop, James Everell, an English colonist he described as “a sober, discreet man,” and two others were out on the Muddy River rowing in a boat. They were traveling through swampland when they saw a rather large light in the night sky. “When it stood still, it flamed up, and was about three yards square,” the governor recorded, “when it ran, it was contracted into the figure of a swine.” Winthrop wrote that over the next two to three hours, the trio of boatmen had said that the strange light “ran as swift as an arrow” back and forth between their position on the river and the nearby village of Charlestown, which was approximately a two-mile arc. For added credibility to, Winthrop noted, “Diverse other credible persons saw the same light, after, about the same place.”

The UFO sighting wasn’t the only strange thing to occur on the nighttime boat ride, though. Governor Winthrop wrote that, following the hours-long sighting, the three men were shocked to discover that they were a mile upstream from their former position. Having no memory of the rowing the boat against the tide, it was if the light had somehow transported them upriver. (It was noted by History.com that the boat’s upstream position might have been a result of being pushed by the wind or being carried by a reverse tidal flow.)

The authors of Wonders in the Sky: Unexplained Aerial Objects from Antiquity to Modern Times, Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck, have a theory as to what might have occurred to the three Puritans. They wrote: “The mysterious repositioning of the boat could suggest that they were unaware of part of their experience. Some researchers would interpret this as a possible alien abduction if it happened today.”

In short, the first UFO sighting in America may have also been the first alien abduction as well.

It has been speculated that the “flamed up” light in the sky could have been an “ignis fatuus,” which History.com defines as “a pale light that can appear over marshland at nighttime due to the combustion of gas from decomposed organic matter.” But the light seen by the three men did not rise from the swamp, at least not according to Winthrop’s retelling. Instead, it was seen shooting back and forth across the sky, movement that makes the “ignis fatuus” explanation seem unlikely.

Also in the realm of speculation is that the Puritan UFO sighting may have been the origination of the term “when pigs fly.” Given the seeming outlandishness of the claims of the three boatmen, it would seem a fitting origin for the commonly used phrase that means that whatever is being referenced is an impossibility. However, The Phrase Finder notes that “when pigs fly” was first documented in 1616 in John Withals’s English-Latin dictionary, A Shorte Dictionarie for Yonge Begynners(and is said to be from a Scottish proverb).

A flying pig sighting or not, the incident, believed to be the first UFO sighting in America, was just one of three separate UFO sightings Governor John Winthrop recorded in his journal.

How Humans Lost Their Tail, Twice

By Jen Viegas, Seeker
December 6, 2016


User Image

Humans can't seem to keep a tail, suggests new research that finds our early ancestors lost tails not just once, but twice.

The findings, published in the journal Current Biology, not only help explain why people don't wag dog-like tails, but they also shed light on why we all have a tailbone and begin life with an actual tail that gradually disappears.

"Fleshy tails go all the way back to the earliest vertebrate ancestors and are found in very young embryos, so it would be very difficult to get rid of them entirely without causing other problems," author Lauren Sallan told Seeker. "As a result, both fishes and humans have had to stunt growth instead, leaving a buried, vestigial tail much like the legs of whales."

The origins of this mysterious vestigial tail go back to fish. For the study, Sallan, an assistant professor in the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Earth and Environmental Science, analyzed 350-million-year-old hatchlings of the fossil fish Aetheretmon. This jawed fish distant ancestor of terrestrial animals today had both a scaly, fleshy tail and a flexible tail fin, sitting one atop the other.

Sallan found these structures were entirely separate. By comparing the Aetheretmon hatchlings with those of living fish, she found that the two "tails" started out one atop the other and then grew on their own. This discovery overturns at least two centuries of scientific belief that the modern adult fish tail fin was simply added to the end of an ancestral tail shared with land animals.

The disconnect means that the two tails went on their own evolutionary paths. Fish lost the fleshy tail and kept the flexible one to improve their swimming. Having just the back fin, she explained, "allows for more refined movements, which a muscular tail (originally present for power swimming) would disrupt."

Fish that evolved to become semi-aquatic and then land-dwelling animals lost the flexible back fin, but kept the fleshier one that over time became the familiar appendage we now see on dogs, cats, cows and many other animals. As dogs show, tails are useful for visual communication, slapping away flying insects and other functions.

Adult apes, including human ancestors, took the tail loss process a step further, Sallan said, "losing the remaining bony tail for better upright movement. Like fish, the remnants of an embryonic bony tail are buried in our lower backs—the coccyx or tailbone—stunted by a loss of molecular signals that would otherwise cause it to grow out like an arm or leg. Thus, humans and fish embryos share mechanisms for controlling tail form."

The fossil record for early apes is not great, but since apes lack tails, she thinks our primate ancestors lost them when they first started to walk on two legs. Monkeys that often walk this way have stunted tails, further proving that tails can get in the way of moving around while upright.

70-Mile-Long Crack Opens Up in Antarctica

By Stephanie Pappas, Live Science Contributor
December 6, 2016

An ominous crack in an Antarctic ice shelf as wide as a football field is long takes on an otherworldly beauty in a new aerial image.

User Image
A huge crack can be seen in the Antarctic Peninsula's Larsen C ice shelf in this aerial image snapped on Nov. 10, 2016, as part of NASA's IceBridge mission. Credit: NASA/John Sonntag

Snapped by scientists on NASA's IceBridge mission, the shot shows a rift in Larsen C, an ice shelf that is floating off the Antarctic Peninsula. When the crack eventually spreads across the entire ice shelf, IT WILL CREATE AN ICEBERG THE SIZE OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE, according to IceBridge. That's around 2,491 square miles (6,451 square kilometers).

As of Nov. 10, when the IceBridge scientists observed this crack, it was 70 MILES (112 KM) LONG AND MORE THAN 300 FEET (91 METERS) WIDE. THE DARK DEPTHS OF THE CRACK PLUNGE DOWN ABOUT A THIRD OF A MILE (0.5 KM), ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE ICE TO THE OCEAN BELOW.

According to NASA Ice, an Earth sciences program at NASA, this rift is relatively new — it showed growth on satellite imagery just this year. The U.K.-based Antarctic research group the MIDAS Project first observed the rift in 2014 and has been tracking it ever since.

Larsen C is Antarctica's fourth-largest ice shelf, and it holds back the land-based glaciers just behind it: Once the ice shelf goes, those slow-flowing glaciers have one less barrier in their journey toward the sea. In 2002, the nearby ice shelf Larsen B partially collapsed after showing similar rifting, NASA's Earth Observatory reported earlier this year, when it showed the collapse alongside a satellite image of the growing Larsen C crevasse.

According to the MIDAS Project, the eventual calving of the Delaware-size sheet of ice would remove between 9 percent and 12 percent of Larsen C's surface area and may lead to the crumbling of the entire ice shelf.

Big Changes in Lifestyle coming ..


User Image
There is a paradigm shift coming and it is about to rewrite everything we know about economics, human labor, and government dependence.

Earlier this week Amazon launched its first Amazon Go store, which allows a customer to walk in, grab the items they want, and simply walk out. Everything is tracked utilizing RFID chips, so the second you step out of the store Amazon knows exactly what you’ve purchased and automatically charges your account:

Amazon Go is a system that marries physical stores with advanced algorithms and sensors to eliminate the need for a typical store checkout. Instead of packing all the things you need into a basket or cart and then dragged it through a tedious checkout process, you just grab whatever you need and walk out of the store.



It sounds like a shaky concept at first, but only until you see just how advanced the technology really is. When you first walk into the store, you use your smartphone to open you virtual shopping cart. As you make your way around the store, a vast system of sensor tracks where you are, what you pick up, and what you take with you. The system even knows if you pick something up and then put it back, and will only charge you for things you actually intended to buy.

Amazon’s latest move is simply the next evolution designed to make human labor obsolete.

As Mike Shedlock recently pointed out at Mish Talk, the transition to automated systems like Amazon Go, as well as technologies like self-driving cars and long-haul trucks, has been fast tracked.

We’re no longer talking decades, but rather, a few years before we start to see the direct effects on the labor market:

Once again competition is the driving force that will guarantee success no later than a 2022-2024 time frame. By the end of that period, if not much sooner, long-haul truck jobs will vanish.







Perhaps drivers will be needed for final delivery in cities and remote locations, but the need for long-haul interstate and major state highway drivers will vanish.


My statement that “millions of long haul truck driving jobs will vanish in the 2022-2024 time frame” is likely way off on the low side if one counts Uber, taxi, and chauffeur driven vehicles.



Take a look at Uber’s goal once again: “replace Uber’s more than 1?million human drivers with robot drivers—as quickly as possible.”



That’s just Uber. And those jobs will vanish. All of them. What about Lyft? Taxis?

We’re talking tens of millions of jobs. And they’ll be gone within half a decade’s time.

The immediate response to such revelations is that there will be widespread societal upheaval.

How will displaced human workers feed their families or keep roofs over their heads?

The answer, according to Silicon Valley, which is driving the new paradigm full force, is quite simple and has been detailed in the highly rated documentary Obsolete from Aaron and Melissa Dykes (available free for Amazon Prime subscribers).

It’s called “universal basic income,” or UBI, and essentially means that every member of society will be given a paycheck to meet their most basic needs.

Aaron Dykes of TruthStream Media explains what’s coming in Obsolete:

Basically, a general idleness, an aimlessness of people who could become revolutionary, who could be subjected to civil unrest… who will probably be on social welfare and benefits for the rest of their lives and have nothing else to look forward to.

That’s the direction that the people in this country are actually headed towards.


Just a week and a half after Bilderberg’s June 2016 meeting it was reported that [Silicon Valley tech startup incubator] Y-Combinator was running a basic income experiment.



Billed as the “Social Vaccine of the 21st Century,” in Oakland, California where some 100 families were chosen to receive $1000 or $2000 a month in order to collect valuable date in the pilot on how to implement, manage and scale further UBI incentives.

Milo Captures Leftist Flag

There were early signs of protest at Michigan State, with flyers likening MILO to Adolf Hitler distributed around campus by leftists on the day of the event.

Shortly before MILO’s talk was set to take place, protesters organized by the leftist group “Which Side MSU?” blocked the entrance to the event. After ignoring police request to clear access to the venue, approximately six protestors were detained.

In the wake of the arrest, Which Side MSU set up an online fund for the bail and legal fees of the six, who they said were arrested for “fighting university-approved bigotry.”

MILO has given a donation to the bail fund, giving a total of $17.76. It is not clear if Which Side MSU? intend to keep the donation.

The remarkable discovery has roots in 2015, when Lida Xing, a researcher from the China University of Geosciences, was wandering through an amber market in Myanmar, when he came across something that caught his eye.

For sale at a stall was a piece of amber that had been dug out of a mine. Inside, he could see some ancient ants, and a fuzzy brown tuft. While the salesman believed the brown object to be some sort of plant, Xing suspected it was much more significant than that – part of a feathered dinosaur.

He persuaded the Dexu Institute of Palaeontology to buy the artifact, and began studying it alongside colleagues from China, the UK, and Canada. They soon discovered that Xing was right – the object preserved in amber indeed belonged to a dinosaur.

“I have studied paleontology for more than 10 years and have been interested in dinosaurs for more than 30 years. But I never expected we could find a dinosaur in amber. This may be the coolest find in my life,” Xing told NPR. “The feathers on the tail are so dense and regular, this is really wonderful.”

Xing's colleague Ryan McKellar, a palaeontologist at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Canada who was involved in the study, said he’s “blown away” by the finding, which is the “first of its kind,” Reuters reported.

Their excitement is understandable. After all, it’s the first time that feathers together with skeletal material from a dinosaur have been found in amber.

“Previous finds in amber have included isolated feathers that may have belonged to dinosaurs, but without an identifiable part of the body included, their source has remained open to debate,” Xing told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).

McKellar also told NPR that the finding is a “spectacular little glimpse,” as it gives scientists a “pathway that gets us to modern feathers” – a particularly useful finding, since the theories on how feathers evolved has long since been the topic of debate.

The fact that traces of iron from blood hemoglobin is present in the specimen also provides hope for future analysis which might provide scientists with “other chemical information on things like pigmentation or even to identify parts of the original keratin,” McKellar told National Geographic.

Xing and his colleagues say that the tail belonged to a young coelurosaur who they have nicknamed ‘Eva.’ They believe its feathery tail became stuck in tree resin around 99 million years ago, when it was about the size of a sparrow. It never made it out, and its tail eventually became well preserved in amber.

Had the coelurosaur – a dinosaur species closely related to the tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptor – been lucky enough to reach adulthood, it would have grown to be slightly smaller than an ostrich.

And, according to McKellar, it would have probably been “fairly cute and fuzzy.”

The tail and its accompanied amber was dug out from a mine in northern Myanmar's Hukawng Valley, located in Kachin state. Amber from the region is believed to contain the world’s largest variety of animal and plant life from the Cretaceous period.

Xing believes his market stall discovery is the first of many to come, due to the conflict between government forces and local armed forces nearing an end in Myanmar.

“Soon, there will be a lot of specimens excavated," he said, adding that his ultimate ambition would be to find a complete dinosaur.

The study by Xing and his colleagues was published in the journal Current Biology on Thursday.

UCB Insider Report..
UCB About To Blow The Lid Off Kingston UFO Coverup
The last we heard it was a pizza oven and that was the end of it. Common sense will tell anyone thats everday a several thousand dollar s Pizza oven just lays in the street burning after falling from a Lorry self igniting, with the rightful owners, stolen or not..never reporting it. No followup done by authorities. end of story


User Image
October 20, 2015
But conspiracy theorists raised objections, saying the claim that the “UFO” was an upturned pizza oven was yet another attempt at official cover-up after the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident.
User Image
Other conspiracy theorists recalled how the U.S. authorities allegedly tried to cover up the Roswell UFO crash with the claim that the crashed object was only a weather balloon or part of a Russian satellite.

Witness reports of humming and Crackling noises with several windows literally exploding leaving shards everywhere were ignored while the scene was sanitized by what appeared to be UK EMS
and Military uniformed personnel..carrying geiger counters. quickly denied and dismissed as cuckishness later by authorities.
That does not explain..however..An immediate D notice was given to all papers , radio and TV stations which would explain the lapse in time and deatHly silence before the colourful oven was shown to the public, sans, smoke and fire, sans debris of broken store front windows and perhaps ...the most clean litter free street scene ever, rivaling China and North Korea's main plazas.

However.Thanks to the keen eye of our own UCBs fan familiar with tampered scene forensics and staging He noticed something in place..not out of place that would tie in with the very distinct possibility..it was a satellite.(not wanting to say UFO of course for obvious security reasons)..that lost its way due to perhaps jamming. Radar? that ghastly British Music?..whatever it was it mistook the crosswalk and bicycle marking you see clearly in the pix ..

This coincides perfectly with what has been suspected for some time by handful of experts ..that crop circles ..not all..are in fact navigational guides.
In particular the Caret phenomena and craft linguistics primer shown below..All Three reveal identical shapes and diagramming..all resolve mathematically to (please brace yourselves) Pi!
Its a slam dunk said one expert who worked out the mathematics.
Another Nail in the Coffin for the the Debunkers said another.These go back a thousand years..enough is enough with the denials..he added

User Image

I want to thank that UCB member who in the quintessence of humility, and a testament to his cat like mental reflexes..brought this to UCBs attention..and hopefully..the world. This is not a small step ..but a giant leap to disclosure..and UK should be proud of its very own beyond a doubt Roswell.

Is Physical Law an Alien Intelligence?

Alien life could be so advanced it becomes indistinguishable from physics.

By Caleb Scharf

Perhaps Arthur C. Clarke was being uncharacteristically unambitious. He once pointed out that any sufficiently advanced technology is going to be indistinguishable from magic. If you dropped in on a bunch of Paleolithic farmers with your iPhone and a pair of sneakers, you’d undoubtedly seem pretty magical. But the contrast is only middling: The farmers would still recognize you as basically like them, and before long they’d be taking selfies. But what if life has moved so far on that it doesn’t just appear magical, but appears like physics?

After all, if the cosmos holds other life, and if some of that life has evolved beyond our own waypoints of complexity and technology, we should be considering some very extreme possibilities. Today’s futurists and believers in a machine “singularity” predict that life and its technological baggage might end up so beyond our ken that we wouldn’t even realize we were staring at it. That’s quite a claim, yet it would neatly explain why we have yet to see advanced intelligence in the cosmos around us, despite the sheer number of planets it could have arisen on—the so-called Fermi Paradox.

For example, if machines continue to grow exponentially in speed and sophistication, they will one day be able to decode the staggering complexity of the living world, from its atoms and molecules all the way up to entire planetary biomes. Presumably life doesn’t have to be made of atoms and molecules, but could be assembled from any set of building blocks with the requisite complexity. If so, a civilization could then transcribe itself and its entire physical realm into new forms. Indeed, perhaps our universe is one of the new forms into which some other civilization transcribed its world.

These possibilities might seem wholly untestable, because part of the conceit is that sufficiently advanced life will not just be unrecognizable as such, but will blend completely into the fabric of what we’ve thought of as nature. But viewed through the warped bottom of a beer glass, we can pick out a few cosmic phenomena that—at crazy as it sounds—might fit the requirements.

For example, only about 5 percent of the mass-energy of the universe consists of ordinary matter: the protons, neutrons, and electrons that we’re composed of. A much larger 27 percent is thought to be unseen, still mysterious stuff. Astronomical evidence for this dark, gravitating matter is convincing, albeit still not without question. Vast halos of dark matter seem to lurk around galaxies, providing mass that helps hold things together via gravity. On even larger scales, the web-like topography traced by luminous gas and stars also hints at unseen mass.

The post was inundated with a variety of wild suggestions which ranged from a Maori canoe to a Rastafarian whale to the Predator from the eponymous Arnold Schwarzenegger film.

“Alien Pod time capsule?” one person suggested.

Many commentators claimed it was a piece of driftwood covered in gooseneck barnacles.

That suggestion holds water as these filter-feeding crustaceans are often found in large numbers attached to driftwood. They also use their flexible stalks to attach to other hard objects such as the hulls of ships, piers or rocks.

Edit me someone decided..you know maybe we should go get a thesaurus or it will all read a little.. redundant..lets call Sysconfig at UCB ..which they did and were able to extend the article a little bit as seen below

There is a remote to control the vertical thrust. The control of the craft is through shifting one’s balance (along with a computer to aid in stabilization).

The sequence by which major media went stark raving mad

by Jon Rappoport

December 12, 2016


"Understand that these media giants not only believe they own the news, they also believe they create reality itself for the masses. They carve into the rock and unveil the sculpture. They script and direct the movie and screen it. They paint the ceiling fresco and display it. They write the novel and sell it. They produce the stage play and review it.

And suddenly…they lose."

http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/plants-can-learn-by-association-just-like-pavlovs-dogs-/

We don't want to alarm you but plants have been shown to have Pavlovian responses, able to learn to associate a stimulus with what they want and adapt their behavior appropriately. We might not be facing a Day of the Triffids scenario just yet, but given what humanity is doing to the planet's largest plants their associations with us may not be favorable.

Dr Monica Gagliano of the University of Western Australia has made a career of showing that plants have a more interesting capacity than most scientists expect, attracting considerable controversy in the process. Her latest study may be the most ground-breaking yet.

Gagliano grew pea seedlings in a Y-shaped maze. A fan was operated in one arm of the maze for periods of 90 minutes, the last half hour of which overlapped with an hour of pea-friendly blue light. For half the peas the fan and light were in the same arm, while the other half had fan and light in opposite arms. The process was repeated three times, with the location of the light and fan varying between arms.

Naturally, the seedlings grew towards the light. However, in her study published in Scientific Reports, Gagliano revealed that when the “trained” peas were exposed to the fan on its own, they anticipated a new dose of light. Sixty-two percent of seedlings that were used to having the fan in the same arm as the light reached towards it. Sixty-nine percent of seedlings that experienced the fans and light in opposition grew towards the other arm. A control group, which had not experienced the fan, mostly grew towards whichever arm of the Y had most recently contained the light.

The peas had come to associate breezes with the arrival of their energy source, just as Pavlov's dogs learned that a bell meant food was on its way, a process known as associative learning.

Associative learning has been considered unique to animals.

Creepy Unexplained Mysteries and Enigmas of the Internet

December 12, 2016
by Brent Swancer

The Internet has spread beyond what perhaps anyone could have ever imagined. It is a vast cyber-universe which has connected humans and ideas in a way civilization has never seen before, and has grown far beyond what would have been imaginable even 10 years ago. This new cyber-realm also holds mysteries that dot its landscape, eerie cyber-enigmas that lurk in the dark corners of the Internet just as physical mysteries do in the real world. Whether it be cursed websites, ghosts haunting cyberspace, strange codes or indecipherable images, or just plain creepy strangeness, this brave new domain of the Internet seems to have just as many strange phenomena, mysteries, and weirdness as anything in the world of things we can touch.

One of the biggest and spookiest mysteries overlaid upon the whole spectrum of the Internet is what is called the “Deep Web,” or also the “Dark Web,” which is a hidden region of the web that lies within its deepest, darkest corners and where people are said to engage in all manner of nefarious dealings, from drug deals to human trafficking, illicit organ sales, weapons sales, child pornography, spy activity, and worse. If the Internet was an ocean, the Deep Web would be the unexplored abysses that plunge down into the cold, pitch blackness, possibly inhabited by unknown behemoths that wallow in the murk. Just as the deep trenches of our oceans have different depths, so too does the Deep Web, with each subsequently deep level inhabited by more and more impenetrability, as well as more depraved individuals, files of classified information, and those wanting increased privacy from the Internet world swimming about in the light above, and most of this cannot be accessed in the traditional manner of search engines, instead using a browser system of bouncing around communications off of numerous servers, known as Tor. In fact, the ocean analogy is often taken further, explaining that search engines are like fishing nets just skimming the surface, and just like our oceans, most of it lies down in the dark, with some people estimating that a staggering 500 times more websites than we know of in the visible web lurk in the bowels of Deep Web.

It is a dark and elusive mysterious zone we know little about, and the deepest of these domains on the web is what is referred to as “The Marianas Web.” Named after the deepest place on earth, the Pacific Ocean’s Marianas Trench, this perhaps mythical area of the Internet is said to be as remote and alien as it gets, and is such a mixture of fact and urban myth that it is hard to ascertain just where spooky lore ends and reality begins. This domain is every bit as inaccessible and secret as its name suggests, supposedly completely hidden from any search engines or other means of access, and only able to be reached through the use of a quantum computer using something called “Polymeric Falcighol Derivation.” The Marianas Web has been claimed to house all manner of weirdness and mysteries, such as secret Vatican archives, the true locations of mysterious places such as Atlantis, ancient evil secrets, information on secret societies and intelligence agencies, various highly classified secrets and research, and all manner of other forbidden knowledge. There are even spooky stories of a sentient female artificial intelligence that resides there, like an entity from some other dimension, ever watching and ruling over her domain, and another popular tale is that the Marianas Web can serve as a gateway for spirits to enter into our world.

While the Deep Web itself certainly does exist to some extent, whether there is really a Marianas Web or not remains unknown. It is a theoretical place borne of speculation, steeped in mystery, rumor, and urban legend to such a point that it is hard to decide what stories are perhaps partially based on fact and what is pure speculation or fiction. Indeed, the quantum technology said to be needed to access it does not even exist yet as far as we know. Whether it is real or not, the enigmatic Marianas Web has generated a massive amount of talk, debate, and conjecture, and is certainly one of the spookiest mysteries of the Internet.

Other mysteries of the Internet are more specific and relate to certain websites themselves, and can range from the somewhat strange to the downright bizarre. One enigmatic site surrounded by odd mysteries and persistent conspiracy theories is Mortis.com, which was website whose main page simply consisted of a box requesting a username and password. Internet users who stumbled across it could not figure out why it was there or what lied behind that impenetrable first page, and not even the most computer savvy person could break the code. Some dedicated sleuths were able to figure out that the site’s server seemed to contain terabytes of information hosted on it, but there was no clue as to what it could be. All anyone could see was that taunting password box and nothing else.

Buzz Aldrin talks South Pole evacuation, John Glenn in TODAY exclusive

14 December 2016

For the first time since being hospitalized after his trip to the South Pole, famed former astronaut Buzz Aldrin spoke in an exclusive interview with TODAY's Al Roker about his recovery from altitude sickness and his thoughts on losing friend and fellow space icon John Glenn.

A health scare forced the 86-year-old Aldrin earlier this month to cut short his personal expedition at the South Pole. Ironically, when reaching an elevation of 9,000 feet, Aldrin began showing signs of altitude sickness.

You can taste garlic with your feet

Garlic's Allicin can go through the protective layers of your skin.

By Jason Lederman December 9, 2016

There are two types of people in the world—people who think there's no such thing as too much garlic, and people who are wrong. No matter group you fall into, if you like fascinating science experiments, you'll want to try tasting garlic through your feet. In the latest installment of its Weird Food Tricks series, the American Chemical Society shows you both how and why this works.

To try it out for yourself, cut a piece of fresh garlic in half. Then, in a separate room that doesn't smell like garlic, take off your shoes and socks and place them into a plastic bag with the piece of garlic. After an hour, you'll be able to both taste and smell the garlic.

GOOD MORNING AND A MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
OF OUR LOVELY UFOCASEBOOKERS cheesy

BBC.com

By Brandon Ambrosino

16 December 2016

In 2014, Nasa awarded $1.1M to the Center for Theological Inquiry, an ecumenical research institute in New Jersey, to study “the societal implications of astrobiology”.

Some were enraged. The Freedom From Religion Foundation, which promotes the division between Church and state, asked Nasa to revoke the grant, and threatened to sue if Nasa didn’t comply. While the FFR stated that their concern was the commingling of government and religious organisations, they also made it clear that they thought the grant was a waste of money. “Science should not concern itself with how its progress will impact faith-based beliefs.”

The FFR’s argument might well be undermined, however, when the day comes that humanity has to respond to the discovery of aliens. Such a discovery would raise a series of questions that would exceed the bounds of science. For example, when we ask, “What is life?” are we asking a scientific question or a theological one? Questions about life’s origins and its future are complicated, and must be explored holistically, across disciplines. And that includes the way we respond to the discovery of aliens.

This is not just an idle fantasy: many scientists would now argue that the detection of extraterrestrial life is more a question of when, not if.

There are several reasons for this confidence, but a main one has to do with the speed at which scientists have been discovering planets outside of our own Solar System. In 2000, astronomers knew of about 50 of these ‘exoplanets’. By 2013, they had found almost 850, located in over 800 planetary systems. That number may reach one million by the year 2045, says David Weintraub, associate professor of Astronomy at Vanderbilt University, and author of Religions and Extraterrestrial Life. “We can quite reasonably expect that the number of known exoplanets will soon become, like the stars, almost uncountable,” he writes. Of those discovered so far, more than 20 are Earth-size exoplanets that occupy a “habitable” zone around their star, including the most recently discovered Proxima b, which orbits Proxima Centauri.

The upshot is that the more we’re able to peer into space, the more certain we become that our planet isn’t the only one suitable for life.

With few exceptions, most of the discussions about Seti (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) tend to stay in the domain of the hard sciences. But the implications of Seti extend well beyond biology and physics, reaching to the humanities and philosophy and even theology. As Carl Sagan has pointed out in (the now out-of-print book) The Cosmic Question, “space exploration leads directly to religious and philosophical questions”. We would need to consider whether our faiths could accommodate these new beings – or if it should shake our beliefs to the core.

Working out these questions might be called exotheology or astro-theology, terms defined by Ted Peters, Professor Emeritus in Theology at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, to refer to “speculation on the theological significance of extraterrestrial life”. As he notes, Peters isn’t the first or only one to use the term, which dates back at least 300 years, to a 1714 publication titled ‘Astro-theology, or a Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God From a Survey of the Heavens’.

How unique are we?

So what issues might the discovery of intelligent aliens raise? Let’s start with the question of our uniqueness – an issue that has troubled both theologians and scientists. Guiding Seti are three principles, as Paul Davies explains in the book Are We Alone? First, there’s the principle of nature’s uniformity, which claims that the physical processes seen on Earth can be found throughout the Universe. This means that the same processes that produce life here produce life everywhere.

Second is the principle of plenitude, which affirms that everything that is possible will be realised. For the purposes of Seti, the second principle claims that as long as there are no impediments to life forming, then life will form; or, as Arthur Lovejoy, the American philosopher who coined the term, puts it, “no genuine possibility of being can remain unfulfilled”. That’s because, claims Sagan, “The origin of life on suitable planets seems built into the chemistry of the Universe.”

The third, the mediocrity principle, claims that there is nothing special about Earth’s status or position in the Universe. This could present the greatest challenge to the major Abrahamic religions, which teach that human beings are purposefully created by God and occupy a privileged position in relation to other creatures.

https://blueshift.io/international-trade.html

The great thing about interactive maps is that they allow you to take control.

Here are a few things we found particularly interesting, as we scanned through the map:

When looking at the globe as a whole, trade is concentrated into obvious hubs. The United States, Europe, and China/Japan are the most evident ones, and they are all lit up with color.
There are also obvious have-nots. Take a look at most of the countries in Africa, or click on an individual country like North Korea to see a lack of international trade.
In fact, North Korea is completely vacuous, except for one lonely dot floating to China every so often. After taking a quick look at the data, it seems China takes in over 60% of North Korea’s exports, which are mostly raw materials such as coal, iron ore, or pig iron.
Now click on South Korea, and the situation is completely different. By the way, South Korea exports $583 billion of goods per year, while the hermit nation does just $3.1 billion per year.
This map also shows how dependent some countries are on others for trade. Look at Canada, a country that sends close to 75% of its exports to the United States. Mexico has a similar situation, where it does most of its business with the U.S. as well.
This is a stark contrast to Cuba, which doesn’t trade enough with any one partner to have it visualized on this scale at all. Cuba has exports of only $1.7 billion, and its largest trading partner is China, which only takes in $311 million of goods per year.

Contents of Thousands of Documents Disclosing Aliens-UFOs to be revealed by US Navy Whistleblower

http://exopolitics.org/thousands-of-documents-disclosing-aliens-ufos-soon-to-be-released-by-us-navy-whistleblower/

"The whistleblower, according to the Express, filed a report with the Mutual UFO Network on February 13 claiming he wants to promote “disclosure”. He was quoted as saying:"

"I’m not reporting a UFO sighting rather a UFO related experience. I have copies of my security clearances. I personally handled, viewed and delivered thousands of documents involving UFO/ET Projects. My secrecy agreement with the US Government expired in October 2014."

The Express story continued:

“He said that UFO/ET were real [sic] and that hopefully disclosure would happen in my lifetime since he was in his early 60s at the time.” In the report he said: “I was required to deliver TS Code word designation COSMIC to SRI, ESL/SYLVANIA, LOCKHEED SKUNKWORKS, TRW, RATHEON, BERKELEY LABS, LAWRENCE LIVERMORE LABS, and other think tanks throughout Silicon valley.”

"The whistleblower’s background has important similarities with another recent whistleblower, William Tompkins, who also claims he worked with the U.S. Navy as a courier of highly classified information concerning extraterrestrial life and technology to major aerospace industries and think tanks from 1942 to 1945."

Update: 3/2/16. The above article has been revised since the anonymous Navy whistleblower in the original Express story was claiming that he was prepared to reveal the contents of thousands of documents seen, not the documents themselves. A follow up story by the Express helped clarify what documents the whistleblower was going to release, which were his personal security clearances and related military service documents. Apologies for the error in the original version of this article.

MTV Video ‘2017 Resolutions for White Guys’ Airs Laundry List of Grievances
By Curtis Houck | December 19, 2016


https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/curtis-houck/2016/12/19/yikes-mtv-video-2017-resolutions-white-guys-airs-laundry-list

User Image

Late Monday afternoon, MTV News underlined its reputation of being a haven for far-left millennials as it released a video on Twitter, dubbed “2017 Resolutions for White Guys,” that offered advice such as stop “mansplaining” and stop saying All Lives Matter and Blue Lives Matter.

Lasting one minute and 21 seconds, the video provides ample reason for older generations to despise millennials and goes hand-in-hand with the litany of meltdowns by liberal snowflakes since the election of Donald Trump as the next President of the United States.

The video began with three young men of separate races with the African-American male informing white viewers that they should listen up because “there’s a few things we think you could do a little bit better in 2017.”

Up first on the list for these professional grievance artists was none other than one proclaiming that America has never been a great country. A female minority stated: “First off, try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy.”

Mysterious Universe

Scientists Revive Dead Brains, Discover Key To Consciousness

December 21, 2016

by Brett Tingley

Dreams and depictions of immortality can be found throughout human history. From Judeo-Christian ideas of Heaven and Hell to Hindu concepts of reincarnation, almost all religions and cultures have some iteration of eternal life found within their beliefs, folklore, or art. Let’s face it: who among us hasn’t at least once entertained the notion of living forever? While it could be claimed that our mortality is what makes our lives precious and all that other feel-good nonsense, who really wants to die?

Not me. Luckily, some recent out-there scientific advancements are bringing the dream of immortality closer to becoming a reality. Earlier this year, a group of scientists claimed to have successfully reversed the cellular aging of a human guinea pig by twenty years. If their research is confirmed as fact, then noted transhumanist Ray Kurzweil’s claims of soon being able to extend the human lifespan indefinitely might not be as far-fetched as they first sound. If these claims already make you uncomfortable, then by all means, click the “back” button on your browser, because this next one’s a real doozy.

Neuroscientists at Canada’s Laurentian University recently published a paper in PLOS One claiming to have brought dead human brains back to “life.” In a manner of speaking, that is. According to their quite technical article, researchers were able to electrically stimulate certain sections of dead brains back to a lifelike state:

Patterns similar to the living condition were elicited by chemical and electrical probes within coronal and sagittal sections of human temporal lobe structures that had been maintained in ethanol-formalin-acetic acid. […] These results suggest that portions of the post-mortem human brain may retain latent capacities to respond with potential life-like and virtual properties.

The authors also noted that injecting the brains with ketamine and nicotine likewise restored similar levels of lifelike cognitive activity. Yeah, that’s pretty weird. But it gets weirder – much weirder. The researchers found that with the addition of glutamate, one of the twenty amino acids that make up human proteins, brains preserved in the common biological preservative ethanol-formalin-acetic acid (EFA) began emitting photons:

Hooyah: Sailors Welcome Navy's Ratings Reversal

Stars and Stripes
Dec 22, 2016
by Tara Copp, Tyler Hlavac and Chris Church

The Navy reversed course on its decision to scrap job-oriented enlisted titles, giving an unexpected Christmas gift to tens of thousands of sailors angered by the move to scuttle a centuries-old tradition.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson, who announced the reversal, cited the strong backlash from sailors against the plan to end the system of job-oriented titles, such as gunner's mate or boatswain's mate.

Sailors were to receive more information Wednesday from Richardson and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Steven Giordano, Navy officials said.

The reaction on social media was almost instantaneous and mostly positive, ranging from "good call," to "leave tradition alone."

Sailors around the fleet joined in the chorus.

"No one was happy about that," Petty Officer 2nd Class Andrew Miller, a machinist's mate aboard the USS Reagan, said of the September decision to eliminate ratings titles.

"I joined up to be a mechanic and I finally got my rating and then they said, ‘You're not a mechanic anymore.' I don't think anyone is going to be unhappy the ratings are back. No chance," Miller said.

Many sailors believed the initial decision to scrap the Navy rating titles was not only getting rid of tradition but didn't work well operationally. Petty Officer 1st Class Gaylon Talley, an information systems technician in Bahrain, said being able to identify someone by their job on a ship makes sense.

"You say you need a damage controlman, you need a fireman, you need an IT," said Talley. "[After scrapping the job titles] you're looking at a number (referring to Navy Occupational speciality codes) and you can't even really remember all of them. Bringing [rating titles] back, you can see everyone is a lot happier, everyone is walking around with smiles on their face."

The news was still making its rounds around Naval Support Activity Bahrain, and Stars and Stripes broke the news to one sailor during an interview. Petty Officer 1st Class German Furuken had a shocked look and struggled for words when he heard about getting rating titles back.

"They are?" Furuken said, who liked the new opportunity to train in another job skill proposed under the rating modernization plan. "Having the title back is good, but I feel like the changes they were going to make is going to take longer, the process is going to be longer, a few years, you know. So I don't know if I'm going to be able to see it while I'm still in the uniform."

The Navy had decided to modernize its rating system -- affecting 265,000 enlisted sailors -- in an effort to align job titles with other services and allow sailors more flexibility to move between job specialities. The drastic change was initiated during a discussion on how to change rating titles to be more gender neutral, a request from Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus.

The backlash was swift, spawning a WhiteHouse.gov petition to get the Navy to reverse its decision, which gathered 103,760 signatures, just more than the 100,000 required for an official response from the executive branch. Military.com had previously reported the original petitioner was Robert D. Weeks, a retired Navy operations specialist. In November, the White House responded to Weeks' petition, saying it supported the Navy's efforts to modernize the ratings system.

Petty Officer 1st Class James Warren, a fire controlman aboard the USS Chancellorsville, said he signed the petition.

"What we know from joining the Navy is your rate is your job and your job defines what you do," Warren said. "The ratings going away threw a wrench in that equation and there was mayhem. I'm glad the ratings are coming back because that's who we are."

Richardson said the Navy leadership heard sailors' unhappiness with the change.

"Since we made the initial rating modernization announcement in September, [Navy leadership] have had the opportunity to speak with thousands of sailors during our travels throughout the fleet. The feedback from current and former sailors has been consistent," he said. "So effective immediately, all rating names are restored."

Richardson admitted getting rid of ratings titles detracted from accomplishing the Navy's major goals with rating modernization, and that sailors pointed out there is a way to modernize the rating system while keeping rating titles.

But ratings modernization won't go by the wayside, according to Richardson. The Navy will work toward changing its personnel system to provide sailors flexibility, including allowing sailors to have multiple occupational skill sets or ratings.

"We will need to tackle the issue of managing rating names," the admiral said. "We will continue to involve sailors throughout the fleet."

Many sailors pointed to the rating modernization changes -- except for the rating titles change -- as being good for sailors' careers by providing more training aligned with the civilian world and career flexibility that isn't as easily available now.

"Give people the opportunity to cross rate if they don't enjoy what they do earlier," said Petty Officer 3rd Class Devin Mcmichael, a Master at Arms detaching from NSA Bahrain, who was also happy to keep his rating. "Because it gives people a better chance to stay in the Navy for a long run, instead of getting their hopes up, not enjoying what they are doing, and then getting out because they aren't pleased with what they do."

For many sailors, there are still a lot of unanswered questions about how rating modernization will work. What changes will it actually bring and how will it affect the advancement exams were common questions.

Richardson asked sailors with ideas on how to modernize the ratings titles to send them to NavyRatingMod.fct@navy.mil.

Also at NSA Bahrain, Command Master Chief Rudy Johnson said it was a "win-win" situation for the sailors who were attached to the rating titles.

"I guess my main message for this is, the sailors have a voice. If they speak up ... leadership from the command level all the way up to the CNO is listening," he said. "We may not see every idea that they have as something they can go forth and do, but we are listening."

RAINBOW BRIDGE

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies who has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

TRIBUTE TO A BEST FRIEND

Sunlight streams through window pane onto a spot on the floor.....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie, but now you are no more.

Our feet walk down a hall of carpet, and muted echoes sound.....
then I remember,
it's where your paws would joyously abound.

A voice is heard along the road, and up beyond the hill,
then I remember,
it can't be yours..... your golden voice is still.

But I'll take that vacant spot of floor and empty muted hall,
and lay them with the absent voice and unused dish along the wall.

I'll wrap these treasured memories in a blanket of my love,
and keep them for my best friend until we meet above.

~Author Unknown




TREASURED FRIEND

I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And shared her silent thoughts with me.

She’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favourite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to his golden throne.

Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.

When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with a bark.

When Free Choice Is an Illusion

Magicians and cognitive scientists know how to manipulate what we pick—or thought we picked

By Susana Martinez-Conde, Stephen L. Macknik
January 2017 Issue

We think we know what we want—but do we, really? In 2005 Lars Hall and Petter Johansson, both at Lund University in Sweden, ran an experiment that transformed how cognitive scientists think about choice. The experimental setup looked deceptively simple. A study participant and researcher faced each other across a table. The scientist offered two photographs of young women deemed equally attractive by an independent focus group. The subject then had to choose which portrait he or she found more appealing.

Next, the experimenter turned both pictures over, moved them toward the subjects and asked them to pick up the photo they just chose. Subjects complied, unaware that the researcher had just performed a swap using a sleight-of-hand technique known to conjurers as black art. Because your visual neurons are built to detect and enhance contrast, it is very hard to see black on black: a magician dressed in black against a black velvet backdrop can look like a floating head.

Hall and Johansson deliberately used a black tabletop in their experiment. The first photos their subjects saw all had black backs. Behind those, however, they hid a second picture of the opposite face with a red back. When the experimenter placed the first portrait face down on the table, he pushed the second photo toward the subject. When participants picked up the red-backed photos, the black-backed ones stayed hidden against the table's black surface—that is, until the experimenter could surreptitiously sweep them into his lap.

The first surprise was that the image switches often went undetected: Hall and Johansson reported that their subjects realized that the photo they picked up was not their actual choice only 26 percent of the time. Then came an even bigger shock. When the researchers asked the participants to explain their selection—remember, they chose the other picture—they did not falter: “She's radiant. I would rather have approached her at a bar than the other one. I like [her] earrings!” a subject said, even though the woman he actually chose had no earrings. Pants on fire.

Over and over, the participants made up just-so stories to account for their nonchoices. Instead of pondering their picks first and then acting on them, the study subjects appeared to act first and think later. Their improbable justifications indicate that we can use hindsight to determine our own motives—just as we might speculate about what drives someone else's behavior after the fact. In their now classic paper, Hall and Johansson dubbed this new illusion “choice blindness.”

5,000-Year-Old Nativity Scene Found in Egypt

http://www.seeker.com/5000-year-old-nativity-scene-found-2161058490.html

Italian researchers have discovered what might be the oldest nativity scene ever found — 5,000-year-old rock art that depicts a star in the east, a newborn between parents and two animals.

The scene, painted in reddish-brown ochre, was found on the ceiling of a small cavity in the Egyptian Sahara desert, during an expedition to sites between the Nile valley and the Gilf Kebir Plateau.

"It's a very evocative scene which indeed resembles the Christmas nativity. But it predates it by some 3,000 years," geologist Marco Morelli, director of the Museum of Planetary Sciences in Prato, near Florence, Italy, told Seeker.

Morelli found the cave drawing in 2005, but only now his team has decided to reveal the amazing find.

"The discovery has several implications as it raises new questions on the iconography of one of the more powerful Christian symbols," Morelli said.

A Christmas Poem

The embers glowed softly, and in their dim light,
I gazed round the room and I cherished the sight.
My wife was asleep, her head on my chest,
My daughter beside me, angelic in rest
Outside the snow fell, a blanket of white,
transforming the yard to a winter delight.

The sparkling lights in the tree I believe,
Completed the magic that was Christmas Eve
My eyelids were heavy, my breathing was deep,
Secure and surrounded by love, I would sleep,
In perfect contentment, or so it would seem,
So I slumbered, perhaps I started to dream.

The sound wasn't loud, and it wasn't too near,
But I opened my eyes when it tickled my ear.
Perhaps just a cough, I didn't quite know,
Then the sure sound of footsteps outside in the snow.
My soul gave a tremble, I struggled to hear,
And I crept to the door just to see who was near.

Standing out in the cold and the dark of the night,
A lone figure stood his face weary and tight.
A soldier, I puzzled, some twenty years old,
Perhaps a Marine, huddled here in the cold.
Alone in the dark, he looked up and smiled,
Standing watch over me, and my wife and my child.

"What are you doing?" I asked without fear,
"Come in this moment, it's freezing out here!
Put down your pack; brush the snow from your sleeve,
You should be at home on a cold Christmas Eve!"
For barely a moment I saw his eyes shift,
Away from the cold and the snow blown in drifts,
To the window that danced with a warm fire's light.

Then he sighed and he said "Its really all right,
I'm out here by choice. I'm here every night.""It's my duty to stand at the front of the line,
That separates you from the darkest of times.
No one had to ask or beg or implore,
I'm proud to stand here like my fathers before.
My Gramps died at Pearl on a day in December."
Then he sighed, "That's a Christmas Gram always remembers."

"My dad stood his watch in the jungles of ' Nam ',
And now it is my turn and so, here I am.
I've not seen my own son in more than a while,
But my wife sends me pictures; he's sure got her smile."
Then he bent and he carefully pulled from his bag,
The red, white, and blue... an American flag.
"I can live through the cold and the being alone,
Away from my family, my house and my home
I can stand at my post through the rain and the sleet,
I can sleep in a foxhole with little to eat.
I can carry the weight of killing another,
Or lay down my life for my sister or brother,
Who stand at the front against any and all
To ensure for all time that this flag will not fall."

"So go back inside," he said, "Harbor no fright,
Your family is waiting and I'll be all right."
"But isn't there something I can do, at the least?
Give you money," I asked, "Or prepare you a feast?
It seems all too little for all that you've done,
for being away from your wife and your son."
Then his eye welled a tear that held no regret,
"Just tell us you love us, and never forget
To fight for our rights back at home while we're gone,
To stand your own watch, no matter how long
For when we come home, either standing or dead,
To know you remember we fought and we bled
Is payment enough, and with that we will trust,
that we mattered to you as you mattered to us."


Merry Christmas! God Bless!

Viral Christmas: Vet 'saw life' in puppy present


Ryan Dailey, Democrat staff writer
December 24, 2016


User Image
(Photo: Courtesy of Dena Coukoulis)

The video has been circling everywhere on the internet, already amassing millions of views: A Marine Corps veteran is gifted a beagle puppy no bigger than his hand and begins to cry at the sight of his new companion.

As the puppy wriggles in his hands, the broad-shouldered Marine betrays emotion that has tugged at the heartstrings of those who have seen the video.

But the star of the viral video is unlikely to appear on a TV talk show sharing his account of the moment, at once heartbreaking and heartwarming.

Cpl. Peter Coukoulis, 26, returned to the States in 2011 after being deployed in Afghanistan; he enlisted in the Marines straight out of Leon High School. Now an electrician in civilian life, he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Large crowds and stressful situations — like the media attention following the circulation of his video — cause Peter to withdraw from people.

“Peter did ROTC at Leon High School, but was a typical teen who got in normal trouble,” said Peter’s mother, Dena Coukoulis.

Peter decided he wanted to join the Marines the day of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He was just 11 years old.

“I had my hands full with him, but the one thing he followed through on was, he joined the Marines,” she said.

When he first returned home, hundreds from the community came out to greet him and thank him for his service. His story even landed on the cover of the Tallahassee Democrat.

Dena Coukoulis hosted a surprise party for her son, Marine Lance Corporal Peter Coukoulis who returned home from Afghanistan on Sunday, June 5, 2011. The Patriot Guard escorted Peter home from I-10 and hundreds turned out to support Peter at the Ox Bottom roundabout with cheers, flags and well wishes. Ê Contact name: (Photo: Democrat files)

Yet for all the fanfare, Coukoulis’ mother says, he began to shy away from the public eye. Sometimes, he even stopped spending time with the family.

“In the beginning, it was kind of like he was isolating himself. I mean he would hang out with us but spent a lot of time alone on the back porch," his mother said. "I started to notice him withdrawing. Just not socializing, not talking, not sharing and not being able to sleep.”

‘He saw life’

When Peter was nine years old, the Coukoulis family adopted a beagle named Jackie. It became his childhood companion.

User Image

On his return home from Afghanistan, Peter learned Jackie had died.

Jackie’s death was particularly tough for Peter to digest. While he was overseas, one of his fellow Marines in a different unit was killed in an explosion — along with his IED-sniffing dog.

“When we had to break that news to him when he got back, and then he told us about the fatality, it was really very difficult,” Dena said.

Things at home didn’t get any easier. Going through a divorce since his return added emotional stress even as Peter tried to sort through everything else.

For those reasons, Dena explained, receiving his new puppy — a girl named Willa — has brought Peter profound comfort.

“I think that emotion came from him experiencing all the loss, and when he saw that puppy’s face, he saw life,” Dena said.

“I think when he was over there and he saw how hard kids had it, kids who really were not going to have any kind of bright future — that was hard for him.”

Beginning of a good thing
As the mother of a Marine, Dena Coukoulis, of course, knows the statistics: 22 veterans die by suicide each day. Those who struggle with PTSD can feel hopeless, debilitated.

The family has rallied around him. After Peter’s brother, George, got out of the Navy, he made a point of moving home to spend time with his older brother before going away to attend college in Colorado.

With his brother home, Peter began going out on the weekends, becoming more comfortable socially. George, who at 24 is two years younger than his brother, said the two were only able to talk sparingly when they were both in the military.

“How it is with brothers; you might spend time apart but when you get back together it’s like you never skipped a beat.” Still, George said, he did not know the full extent to which Peter was struggling until he returned to Tallahassee.

“I didn’t even realize it, but my brother probably went through the worst five years of his life,” he said.

George said Peter, at first, was apprehensive about seeking help for his PTSD, but George encouraged him to do some reaching out.

“He told me, ‘Hey you were right, I don’t know what I would’ve done otherwise if you didn’t help me realize that,’ ” George said. He needed that little boost to have the realization, and honestly, it’s like he’s a different person.”

Peter began throwing himself into projects, most of which involve fishing. George said his brother has been talking about taking other veterans fishing as a means of providing a helping hand to others.

“Even in the video, he’s doing something with a fishing lure,” Dena said. “That’s actually been a good form of therapy for him.”

Peter received a fishing boat as a gift from one of his fellow Marine veterans, with whom he has maintained close relationships.

“I started seeing consistency with Peter that I just felt he was moving forward and he would be ready for a dog,” Dena said.

She refuses to see her son become a statistic and encourages other veterans who are suffering from PTSD to reach out to those who care about them.

“If I had any advice for veterans, it would be to take advantage of the resources that are available to you,” she said. “We had to encourage Peter to get the help he needed.”

Mystery as NATO Auditor General is found shot dead in suspicious circumstances

POLICE in Belgium are probing the death of a high ranking NATO official after his body was discovered in his car with a gunshot wound to the head.

By Siobhan McFadyen
PUBLISHED: 03:47, Mon, Dec 26, 2016

According to reports, Yves Chandelon, the 62-year-old auditor general of NATO was found miles away from both his home and office.

His body was found in the Belgian town of Andenne, 62 miles away from his home in Lens on December 16.

According to local newspaper reports Mr Chandelon was the registered keeper of three weapons however the gun found at the scene did not belong to him, it has been claimed.

And more bizarrely it has been reported locally that the gun which killed him was found in the glovebox of the vehicle.

Local news reports say Mr Chandelon's family are concerned about the circumstances of the case.

They say initial suggestions that it was a possible suicide are incorrect.

And it has been reported that the former director of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Luxembourg had complained of getting strange telephone calls before he died and "felt threatened".

Belgian newspaper group SudInfo.be reported Mr Chandelon's family has a number of unanswered questions surrounding the strange death.

The newspaper claims local prosecutor Vincent Macq is probing the death but that a post mortem is yet to be carried out.

Band that died in T 154 Crash

Vadim Ananyev, a soloist who stayed home with his family, said he was devastated.

“I have lost my friends and colleagues, all killed, all five soloists,” Ananyev told The Associated Press. “I have known these people for 30 years. I know their wives and children. I feel terrible for the children and for all that I have lost.”

Ananyev said he had received condolences from all over Russia and from abroad.

“We were loved all over the world, never mind the political situation,” he said.

In Rome, Pope Francis led thousands of faithful in silent prayer for the plane crash victims and noted that the Russian army choir had performed in 2004 at the Vatican.

https://theintercept.com/2015/10/13/dogs-forge-a-bond-with-rios-homeless-that-is-life-saving/

One of the most striking aspects to the testimonials one hears is how often the dogs are credited with literally saving people’s lives. The dog is often the catalyst that liberates them from self-destructive drug or alcohol addictions, or suppresses the suicide impulse, or alleviates depression, or creates a determination to stabilize and improve their lives. Professor Irvine told me, “This is the redemptive value of the relationship, which one hears over and over as you talk to the homeless.”

How can a relationship with a dog achieve such monumental successes where psychology, medicine, and standalone human desire so often fail? One explanation is that the responsibility to care for another living creature provides purpose, focus and thus self-esteem — all vital human needs. Another is the validation and self-worth that comes from the love a dog provides. Irvine put it this way: “We construct dogs as ideal beings — they love unconditionally, they don’t lie, they don’t judge people — so if a being this noble loves us, then there must be something OK with us.”

The non-judgmental quality of the dog is central. To live on the street is to endure constant, implicit condemnation. The homeless know exactly what society thinks of them. They see it embedded in every effort of avoidance, every expression of police suspicion, every gesture of condescension and discomfort even from those who stop to give them money. They’re sometimes told that they’re not worthy even of having pets.

Dogs think none of those things, harbor none of those judgments. Dogs strip away the extraneous and artificial metrics: They simply love and adore and protect those who treat them well. As Birdie puts it in the film: “If the other is more beautiful or uglier, richer or poorer, people always talk about each other. Dogs don’t.” For people living on the street, being showered with love, affection and appreciation can fundamentally alter the world, and many get that only from their dogs.

Scientist Warns That Gene Editing Could Wipe Out Future Generations Of Geniuses

Submitted by Josepth Jankowski via PlanetFreeWill.com,

While the development of new genome-editing technology that could one day ensure that children do not inherit unwanted diseases and disorders sounds like a magnificent breakthrough, one scientist is warning that the latest technology runs the risk of eliminating future geniuses like Thomas Edison and Stephen Hawking.

According to Dr. Jim Kozubek, author of Modern Prometheus, eliminating conditions such as depression, autism, schizophrenia or Asperger's through the new Crispr-Cas9 human genome editing technology runs the risk of seeing future generations of geniuses wiped out.

Express reports:

Dr Kozubek said a world without depression, autism, schizophrenia or Asperger’s might also mean one without the likes of playwright Tennessee Williams, as figures show that writers are ten times more like to suffer from bipolar than the general population and poets are 40 times more likely to be diagnosed with it.



Dr Kozubek said: “Thomas Edison was ‘addled’ and kicked out of school. Tennessee Williams, as a teenager on the boulevards of Paris felt afraid of ‘the process of thought’ and came within ‘a hairsbreadth of going quite mad’.

Kozubek says that “Darwin showed us that evolution does not progress toward an ideal concept or model, but rather is a work of tinkering toward adaptation in local niches.”

He added that a condition like autism should be thought of as a “gift” that has made its was through human genes for millions of years.

“Before we begin modifying our genes with gene editing tools such as Crispr-Cas9, we’d be smart to recall that genetic variants that contribute to psychiatric conditions may even be beneficial depending on the environment or genetic background,” Kozubek said.

Crispr-Cas9 is a new technology that enables geneticists and medical researchers to edit parts of the genome by removing, adding or altering sections of the DNA sequence.



Dr. Kozubek’s rather shocking warning comes as human trials using Crispr are already underway inside the United States.

The first human trials involving the method began in China where oncologists at Sichuan University were the first in the world to insert Crispr edited cells into a patient suffering from an aggressive form of lung cancer.

Last year, British scientists at the University College London used a similar gene editing technique to help a 17-month-old girl with leukemia.

Researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have recently used CRISPR/Cas9 gene targeting system to mice to treat hemophilia B.

Dovetails nicely with above Gene Editing Post

http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/12/27/george-washington-university-history-majors-no-longer-required-take-u-s-history/
New requirements at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. have taken away the U.S. history requirement for history majors.

As a result of a change in department requirements, history majors at George Washington University are no longer required to take a U.S. history course in order to graduate. Although professors claim that most student opt to take a U.S. history course voluntarily, it is now possible to receive a history degree from George Washington University without studying United States history.

The change was made to “recruit students” to the major in the increasingly “globalized” world. Denver Brunsman, an associate professor of history at George Washington claimed that the change allows students to study history from an increasingly globalized perspective.

“I think an important change in the history major has been to make our major actually reflect the field of history the way that historians study it now,” Brunsman said. “In the past – and I think our old standards reflected this – it was very common to have students take a class in American history, in European history and maybe, just maybe, something else, another part of the world.”

Alaskans battle a unique problem: Dirty winter air

By Linda Hervieux
Published December 27, 2016

In this file photo, ice fog envelops downtown Fairbanks, Alaska. (Eric Engman/Fairbanks Daily News-Miner via AP, File)

Odds are old Saint Nick was happy to flee the North Pole to make his annual rounds this Christmas. A dirty haze has settled over this part of northern Alaska, hovering over streets named Santa Claus Lane.

The New York Times pins the blame on what it calls an "only-in-Alaska" pollution problem: People use old, inefficient wood-burning stoves, and when the smoke goes out their chimneys, frigid temperatures force it back down to ground level.

That results in the highest readings in the nation of a pollution measure called PM 2.5, which refers to fine-particulate matter. In fact, the area suffered a record stretch of six consecutive days earlier this month with air deemed unhealthy, reports the Fairbanks News-Miner.

This ground-level pollution is seen as particularly dangerous because it can get directly into lungs. The dirty woodstove problem is particularly pronounced in the Fairbanks-North Pole area, about the size of New Jersey.

With cleaner natural gas in short supply and heating oil expensive, wood is the fuel of choice as temperatures hover around minus 20 below. Upgrading to a more efficient wood stove is expensive, even with local government assistance, and many independent Alaskans balk at the cost—and being told what to do.

(An education campaign is trying to spread the word that upgrading is actually a wise investment, notes the Frontiersman.) Failing to comply could result in residents being fined, and the borough losing federal transportation funds if the EPA declares the area in violation of the Clean Air Act.

TMZ

Carrie Fisher's cherished dog -- a 4-year-old pooch named Gary -- will now be cared for by Carrie's daughter ... TMZ has learned.

Family friends are telling us Billie Lourd will take custody of the French bulldog, which was by Carrie's side on the plane from London to LAX when Carrie's heart stopped. The pooch also visited Carrie at UCLA Medical Center.

Billie already has a French bulldog named Tina, that's best friends with Gary. We're told she wants to make sure the 2 get along in the long term and she's able to handle the added responsibility.

A family source told TMZ, Carrie always wanted Billie to take Gary if something happened to her. If, for some reason, Billie can't care for Gary for the long haul, the dog will remain in the family.

The dog was like a child to Carrie, who carted her best friend almost everywhere she went ... even interviews.

A murder in Arkansas may change the way people behave around smart devices. A warrant has been issued for an Amazon Echo, revealing that Amazon may retain recordings on a server for law enforcement investigations.

UPDATE, READ MORE: Amazon denies police Echo data sought in murder case warrant

An Amazon Echo was cited in a warrant related to a November 2015 murder in Bentonville, Arkansas. While other smart devices were identified, police have pinned some specific hopes on the Echo for a simple reason: it never stops listening.

The Echo is only activated after a user says its wake, or activation, word. But once triggered, it records snippets of things said that are then sent to an Amazon cloud. A speech-recognition network moves things along until a response is sent back to the device, where it obeys a user’s commands.

iMessage, but who reads? #Apple logs message contacts and location https://t.co/Ql6cimJpbWpic.twitter.com/GnFojJQ5u8
— RT America (@RT_America) September 29, 2016

Echo owners may be familiar with the companion app, which stores all requests to be listened to and cherished. But that’s not the only thing it does with those recordings. Amazon holds on to that data allegedly with the purpose of improving its voice assistant services, according to CNET.

The Echo in question belonged to James Andrew Bates, who is facing a first-degree murder charge for allegedly strangling and drowning Victor Collins in Bates’ hot tub.

Amazon twice refused the requests from Bentonville law enforcement. In a statement to Engadget, Amazon said: "Amazon will not release customer information without a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us. Amazon objects to overbroad or otherwise inappropriate demands as a matter of course.”

However, it provided investigators with Bates’ account details, including purchases. In addition, investigators were allegedly able to recover information from the speakers but did not specify what type.

It is likely that authorities are hoping that Echo’s eavesdropping technology accidentally led to it being activated by music, conversation, or ambient noises and created a recording containing any information relevant to Collins’ death.

The warrant did not only cover Bates’ Echo. His home was furnished with an array of smart devices that use Internet of Things technology such as a Nest thermostat, a Honeywell alarm system, wireless weather monitoring in the backyard and WeMo devices for lighting.

Get a warrant: Federal judge throws out evidence obtained through Stingray #surveillancehttps://t.co/2cc2lsDsNXpic.twitter.com/lwZMO804EW
— RT America (@RT_America) July 13, 2016

In fact, police seem to have already relied on his smart meter that measures electricity and water usage. Police found that on the night of the murder, Bates used roughly 140 gallons of water between 1:00am and 3:00am. Investigators believe that this could be a sign that he had used water to wash away evidence of what happened on his hot tub patio, Engadget reported.

Regardless of what’s discovered on the Echo, the use of evidence gathered from smart devices has been controversial. Kimberly Weber, Bates’ attorney, told Engadget: “You have an expectation of privacy in your home, and I have a big problem that law enforcement can use the technology that advances our quality of life against us.”

This wouldn’t be the first time someone’s digital footprint has been held against them in a court of law. Prosecutors in the infamous 2011 Casey Anthony trial tried to connect her Google searches for words like “chloroform,” “chest trauma” and “neck breaking” to the murder of her two-year-old daughter.

Also in 2011, the confession a 16-year-old Canadian boy made in a World of Warcraft chat of the murder of another teenager was used against him, along with text messages made allegedly where the body was dumped.

In response, the agency sent him partially redacted copies of those same two rejections.

Apart from the traditional fireworks and illuminated ball in Times Square, look for a blazing comet to light the night sky on New Year’s Eve.

“Say farewell to 2016 in cosmic style by looking up to see the #NewYearsEve #comet on December 31,” the laboratory said in a Wednesday Instagram post.

Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova will be near the moon on New Year's Eve, NASA said.

The comet, NASA said, was expected to appear in the western horizon on Dec. 15 and had a bluish-green head by Dec. 21. The comet is a periodic comet, which returns to the inner solar system about every 5 years.

Dr. David Reitzel, an astronomical lecturer at Griffith Observatory in California, said the comet is visible now using a telescope or strong binoculars. On Saturday, people should point their instruments to the west just after sunset to catch a glimpse of the comet, which will be just to the left of the crescent moon. For a good view, go somewhere away from residential lights.

A similar tie-break settled the third place, among the three contenders with 14.5 points each. Russian Daniil Dubov placed third, ahead of American Hikaru Nakamura and 2015 champion Alexander Grischuk.

Blitz chess limits the time each player has to three minutes and an additional two seconds per move, forcing a very rapid pace in a game typically lasting hours under regular rules.

Karjakin’s world title in blitz chess is the first in his career while Carlsen has held it twice before – in 2009 and in 2014.

The female blitz chess champion this year is Ukrainian Anna Muzychuk, who scored 13 points in 17 rounds. Russians Valentina Gunina and Ekaterina Lagno took the second and third places, scoring 12.5 points each.

The two rapid chess titles, a slightly slower form of chess, which were also up for the taking in Doha, went to Ukrainian players, too. Vassily Ivanchuk was the best among the men and Muzychuk was the strongest in rapid chess.

Rapid chess allows 15 minutes to each player plus 10 second increments per move.

Karjakin told RT that he didn’t expect to win either the rapid or blitz world titles.

“Ahead of this championship, I thought I only wanted to play chess here and take a rest from all the interviews and attention. I didn’t set any big goals and just wanted to be in the top three in one of the events,” he said.

He added that his mediocre performance in the rapid championship gave him the stimulus to try harder.

“I realized that my play in rapid was not even close to what my fans wanted. I got angry at myself,” Karjakin said. “So, on day one [of the blitz] I managed to beat Carlsen, which was a beautiful continuation of our story in New York. And after beating the Norwegian, I realized I really could claim the champion’s title.”

There's a real legit conspiracy here. That tie-break system and FIDE is corrupt - out to get Carlsen and tilted in favor of Russia and its allies.

Rumor is that the ratings and tie-break code was hacked. There's even speculation that one of the players - one Mohamed Ali Dima to be exact was a plant to sway the results. This player went 0 for 36 over the two events YET there is not a single picture of M.A.D. or his(?) background to be found anywhere. This unrated player caused the average ratings used in the tie-break system to be easily manipulated.

There is also strong evidence to support the theory that it is mathematically impossible for the highest rated player to ever win a tie-break system based on the highest average rating of opponents. The highest rated player can never get a higher average then their own rating while lower rated players can. LIGHT LIE needs to explain that one more.

Per my brief discussion with LIGHT LIE, he wanted me to relay the following paraphrased:

This is a situation that requires more attention. Forget about UFO's, disclosure, ET's, Trump, Hillary, JFK, PizzaGate, 911, radiation, etc. conspiracies. Focus is needed on getting to the bottom of something that really matters - who is the real blitz and rapid World Chess Champion?

Magnus shows his disgust in this video of the staged award ceremony. BTW, where's the audience crowd? There are no videos or pictures of many people watching it - just a few actors placed in limited camera views. It gets worse, there is very little available showing an audience for the whole event.

Washington Post’s Fake News of Russian Vermont Power Plant Hack

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/12/31/washington-posts-fake-news-russian-vermont-power-plant-hack/

Late on Friday, December 30, the Post broke a story originally entitled, “Russian hackers penetrated U.S. electricity grid through a utility in Vermont, officials say.”

The Post story went on to say, “A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials.”

But it appears that the paper published the shocking story before actually getting any quotes from the power company in Vermont. It also turned out that the paper’s tale was wildly exaggerated.

User Image

The Vermont utility in question, the Burlington Electric Department, later released a statement clarifying where it discovered the “Russian code” and it turned out it there was not any “penetration” into the U.S. electricity grid.

9/11 Reincarnation Stories: Children Who Claim Having Been on the WTC

December 30, 2016

911 Reincarnation Stories. It was a terrible day for humanity: There was fire, fear, and lots of pain on September 11, 2001, in New York City where an attack performed by radical groups killed thousands of people and still creates much controversy. But what if somehow these people who lost their lives there, were reincarnated? These days there are reports of children giving full details of what happened that September 11 at the World Trade Center, in a way only someone who was there would know. We’ve learned before about children remembering past lives. Are these children, reincarnated 9/11 victims?

The reincarnation of a firefighter who died on September 11

Rachel Nolan is a mother who claims her nearly 4-year-old son, Thomas, is the reincarnation of a deceased firefighter. The boy has been talking for one year about what happened that September 11 during the attacks at the World Trade Center. It all started when the child was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up, to which he replied: “I don’t just want to be a firefighter, I have always been and already am a firefighter!”. This took everyone by surprise, but he went on to say: “I used to get up in the morning, go to work and in the evenings I would come home and take off my fire proximity suit.”

The mother thought that these were just children’s games, although she found the level of detail to be unsettling, for instance, he said he used an ax to check if there was fire behind walls and to flee if there was danger at the site, but something more shocking than this occurred when the boy saw a picture of the World Trade Center in a magazine and said, “The bad men burnt these buildings, and people had to jump and I couldn’t help”, “There were people waiting for firefighters, waiting for me but I could not get there to help them.”

The Brains of the Operation

Review: Steve Pace, 'The Projects of Skunkworks: 75 Years of Lockheed Martin's Advanced Development Programs'

by Tom Rogan

In 1937, the Army Air Corps “called for a twin-engine interceptor to pursue and destroy enemy aircraft at high altitude. It also called for a maximum level-altitude flight speed of at least 360 miles per hour and the ability to reach an altitude of 20,000 feet within six minutes. These were unheard-of performance goals at that time in aviation history, and they required the design of an advanced fighter in the truest sense of that phrase.”

Lockheed’s response to that proposal was the P-38 Lightning, a heavy fighter that was instrumental in long-range air missions during the Second World War. The Projects of Skunk Works is filled with such stories. The book shows how Lockheed—now Lockheed Martin, the 500-pound gorilla of defense contractors—programs have produced some of the most extraordinary aircraft in world history.

Enter Lockheed’s top-secret research arm, called Skunk Works. Skunk Works earned its name in the 1940s when a wrong-number caller got through to a Lockheed engineer. Joking, the engineer answered “Skonk Works, inside man Culver.” (Skonk Works was a factory from a popular newspaper comic of the time.)

New garden towns and villages to provide 200,000 homes to ease housing shortage

By Kate McCann, Senior Political Correspondent
2 January 2017 • 10:50am

New “garden” towns and villages will be built across England in an attempt to alleviate the housing crisis, the Government will announce on Monday.

The plans will deliver 14 new villages of between 1,500 to 10,000 homes to be built outside existing settlements.

A further three towns of more than 10,000 houses each will be built alongside Aylesbury, Taunton and Harlow and Gilston.

Theresa May’s first announcement of 2017 suggests her Government will make housing one of its main priorities in the year ahead.

The last Conservative government was regularly criticised for failing to build more homes. The ambitious new plans have won support from campaign groups despite earlier concerns that garden cities would lead to urban sprawl and put added pressure on infrastructure.

Announcing the scheme, the housing minister said the villages will create almost 50,000 new homes from Cheshire down to Devon, while the towns will take the total to 200,000 new homes.

Gavin Barwell said: “Locally-led garden towns and villages have enormous potential to deliver the homes that communities need. New communities not only deliver homes, they also bring new jobs and facilities and a big boost to local economies.”

The Astonishing Climate-Changing Power of Plate Tectonics

Moving continents have drastically changed Earth's climate—and are still doing so today

By Dana Hunter on December 29, 2016

Mount Baker wreathed in clouds. Credit: Dana Hunter

Oh, how I struggled with this particular Accretionary Wedge topic:

What geological concept or idea did you hear about that you had no notion of before (and likely surprised you in some way).

I mean, there's a lot. All the hijinks that go on in subduction zones constantly astonish me. The idea that rocks in the mantle flow without being actually molten, and that rocks have any sort of elasticity to begin with – I found that incredible. I had no idea when I first started studying geology just what temperature and pressure could do to minerals. I mean, I knew there was such a thing as a metamorphic rock, but my eyes popped when I learned more of the details. It seems like every time I read a book on geology, there's something new and astonishing. For instance: whilst reading a book about caves for a bit of the world I'm building, I found out there are places in the world with natural caves formed in salt. I had no idea that happened.

So yes, I'm spoiled for choice. But I think the one thing that's made my eyes pop the most is the idea that plate tectonics affects climate.

That shouldn't have taken me by surprise, but it did. Sure, I knew about rain shadow effects – I grew up in the American Southwest, which is deep in the rain shadow of the Sierra Nevada. After I moved to Washington State, I drive across a dramatic example of rain shadow within a couple of hours. Here's the western side of the Cascades, near Seattle:

Image shows a valley full of lush green conifers and deciduous trees. A jagged mountain range rises in the distance, creating its own cap of clouds against the blue sky.

And here's the eastern side, near Vantage:

Image shows me dressed in a blue tank top and black shorts, standing on top of an enormous, rounded chunk of columnar basalt. There is another chunk behind me. Both are about the size of garden sheds. There is a sagebrush-covered flat behind us, with a river gorge cutting through it.

That's a profound difference between one side of the mountains and the other, people.

So yes, I knew mountains had a huge affect on climate. And I also knew that where you are in the world matters. Washington State, for instance, would be a much different place if it straddled the Equator. But for some reason, I didn't carry that idea to its logical conclusion: that as the continents go sailing around the world due to the vagaries of plate tectonics, they change everything.

In the first place, plate tectonics creates these mountains that have such an impact on local and regional climates. And haven't I heard that the Himalaya may have changed the world? All because India decided to take a quick trip north and didn't watch where it was going.
User Image
As continents move, they affect ocean circulation. And ocean circulation affects global climate. Could you imagine what would happen if some bit of land deflected the Antarctic Circumpolar Current? You don't have to imagine it all by yourself - go play with a paleoclimate animation and watch the climate change. Look at it on a map. It matters where land is, and not just for the view.

It shocked me to learn how intimately rocks are connected to climate. We didn't talk about rocks when we discussed global warming in school. We talked about rainforests and fossil fuels and atmospheric gasses. There was some vague talk about how volcanoes could impact climate, but nobody mentioned the Deccan Traps, so I thought it was all small-scale, temporary stuff. And nobody said diddly about actual rocks. They didn't talk about limestone and other carbonate rocks. Nobody bothered to tell me just how much CO2 was stored up in those rocks, or said a word about how subducting carbonate rocks contribute to the CO2 outgassing from volcanoes. Boggles my mind, that does, and makes me look at the world in a whole new light.

And, cherry on top, plate tectonics shaped human evolution. Neat!

You know what I think surprises me the most about all this? It's how interconnected all this world is, what an intimate whole all of the different scientific disciplines make. We break them down into categories for convenience, and sometimes forget that you can't have geology without chemistry, physics, biology, hydrology... and you don't get climate without a heaping helping of geology thrown in. You can't understand one thing until you realize it's just a component of a much larger whole. Nothing exists in isolation. It all relates.

It didn't seem that way in school. Nobody ever taught it that way. So making these discoveries, seeing the way geology affects everything on earth, has been a tremendous surprise. More than that: a delight. It's delicious.

And I can't wait for the next surprise.

HAPPY (new style) BIRTHDAY, SIR ISAAC NEWTON!



(During Newton's lifetime, two calendars were in use in Europe: the Julian ("Old Style") calendar in protestant and Orthodox regions, including Britain; and the Gregorian ("New Style") calendar in Roman Catholic Europe. At Newton's birth, Gregorian dates were ten days ahead of Julian dates: thus his birth is recorded as taking place on 25 December 1642 Old Style, but can be converted to a New Style (modern) date of 4 January 1643. By the time of his death, the difference between the calendars had increased to eleven days: moreover, he died in the period after the start of the New Style year on 1 January, but before that of the Old Style new year on 25 March. His death occurred on 20 March 1726 according to the Old Style calendar, but the year is usually adjusted to 1727. A full conversion to New Style gives the date 31 March 1727.)

Mysterious radio burst came from a galaxy 2.5 billion light years away, astronomers discover

Sarah Kaplan, Washington Post 01.05.2017

For the first time, scientists have nailed down a source of fast radio bursts, one of astronomy’s most enigmatic phenomena.

A dim dwarf galaxy 2.5 billion light years from Earth is sending out the mysterious millisecond-long blasts of radio waves, researchers report Wednesday in Nature and Astrophysical Journal Letters. The bursts traverse vast expanses of time and intergalactic space before reaching our planet.

“This really is the first ironclad association of a fast radio burst with another astronomical source, so it’s a pretty huge result,” said Duncan Lorimer, an astronomer at West Virginia University who reported the first detection of a fast radio burst (FRB) in 2007.

FRBs are extremely brief pulses of radio waves, flaring with the power of about 500 million suns. Scientists have recorded just 18 of these signals, but studies suggest there could be as many as 10,000 a day. Their unpredictability makes them difficult to spot, and they appear to come from all over the sky.

Understanding these bursts may open up a new field in astronomy, added Lorimer, who was not involved in the new reports. Because they travel so far to reach Earth, FRBs could be a tool for studying the mostly empty space between galaxies and mapping the distribution of matter across the universe. But first astronomers have to figure out what exactly they are.





“I am not exaggerating when I say there are more models for what FRBs could be than there are FRBs,” said Cornell astronomer Shami Chatterjee, the lead author of the new Nature paper.

Many scientists think the bursts are emitted by distant neutron stars, the super-dense embers of exploded suns. But some believe they must originate in our own galaxy. Still more suggest that FRBs could be caused by cataclysms like a supernova or a collision of two stars. This last theory was compelling because most FRB detections were one-off events – astronomers never spotted more than one flare from a single source.

In spring, researchers looking at archival data from Arecibo Observatory – one of the largest radio telescopes in the world – found evidence that bursts were repeatedly coming from the same spot in the sky. Each one carried the telltale signature of an FRB: the high frequency radio waves arrived first, followed by successively lower frequencies, which get stretched out and slowed down as they travel across space. The signal, called FRB 121102, was definitely repeating, and it certainly traveled a long way to reach Earth.

But where did it come from? To answer that question, Chatterjee and his colleagues turned to the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array, a network of 27 radio telescopes spread over a 20-mile-wide area in the high grassland of New Mexico (Jodie Foster works there in the movie “Contact”). Each of the telescopes making up the VLA has a smaller diameter than the one at Arecibo, meaning they don’t take in very much of the sky. But combining the data from all 27 gives a very high-resolution glimpse of one small swatch of space – exactly what Chatterjee needed.

Start Rolling Your Blunts: Spherical Planetarium Videos Are Here

Written by

January 6, 2017 // 09:00 AM EST

It’s the Friday the week after the holidays: The perfect time to get lost in trippy space videos.

The European Southern Observatory—with headquarters are in Garching near Munich, Germany but also operates in multiple observing sites in Chile—has offered its library of fulldome planetarium shows free to the public for years. But you don’t need to own your own planetarium or break into your local science museum to see these beautiful space-sights: They’re almost as good right from your laptop screen. Note that they’re all circular—or spherical, really—in their view mode. And spherical video is suddenly in vogue now thanks to Snapchat Spectacles.

Some are like watching the universe form as an embryo inside of an egg, like this simulation of the evolution of everything:





Others are more like soothing snow globes filled with stars, like this view of star clusters in the Milky Way:





Or, like this rendering of the evolution of a dark matter galactic halo, some are more reminiscent of the plasma ball experiments you’d see in mad scientist’s lab:





A few of the fulldome videos put you back on earth, like the timelapse ALMA telescopes under the Chilean sky:

The technological potential of earwax


Date: January 6, 2017

While most of us consider earwax to simply be an unappealing substance, Alexis Noel, a doctoral student in David Hu's laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology, sees its innovative potential as a high-tech filter for use in robotics and other fields.

Noel attributes her inspiration for studying earwax to an event during a diving vacation. Her boyfriend had gotten water trapped in his ear, and nothing seemed to be able to get it out. Eventually, he had to go to a doctor, who found that the water was actually being held in place by his earwax.

"A couple years later I was reminiscing and thought: why would it block the water like that? And it just started this snowball effect of me and David [Hu] just asking questions about earwax and how it works," says Noel. They realized that this strange bodily fluid could potentially be a template for developing adhesives for applied usage in technology. But first, its complex behavior must be understood.

She and undergraduate researcher Zac Zachow began investigating earwax by collecting samples from several animals: pigs, sheep, rabbits and dogs. What they have found is fascinating. First, the properties of earwax are extremely consistent across these different mammals, which have a variety of ear shapes and sizes. The thickness, the way it flows, and even the appearance is highly similar. This indicates that those properties of earwax seem to be a solution that works well across species.

They also examined the ear canal shapes of different animals and motions of the jaw to see how these factors affect the flow of the earwax and lead to it falling out of the ear. It turns out that earwax is a non-Newtonian, shear-thinning fluid, which means is that when left alone, it is very thick and sticky (earwax is as viscous as molasses), but when a force is applied to it, it flows more quickly. As a result, although earwax is used within the ear for a long time, pressure and motion of the jaw will eventually force it out.

In the ear, earwax is excellent at filtering air. In the same way that Noel's boyfriend's earwax trapped the water, earwax traps other particles, catching them in a "web" of small hairs coated with sticky wax and protecting the inner ear from debris and bacteria. Noel and Zachrow have also found that as earwax accumulates dust, it becomes crumbly "like adding too much flour to dough when making bread," Noel explained. This allows the dusty wax to separate and fall out of the ear, making room for newer, cleaner wax to continue its work within the ear.

It is these filtering properties that have piqued Noel's interest for practical applications. One potential is to create some sort of biomimetic earwax adhesive surface that can be used in a ventilation system for robotics or for other kinds of machinery.

"Obviously you're not going to have earwax sitting on a Mars rover to protect it from dust," laughs Noel. "We are still trying to understand what is earwax and how does it work the way it works. And once we really understand that we can start applying it [to new technology]."

Zetar we need to call a meeting there is an army of impostors out there giving KT a bad name



http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-aide-harris-accused-rogue-police-force-20150505-story.html
This week, the three people were charged with impersonating police officers. They are David Henry, who told Johnson he was the police chief, Tonette Hayes and Brandon Kiel, an aide to state Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris.
Fact or fiction? Rogue police force claims ties to ancient Knights Templar
Fact or fiction? Rogue police force claims ties to ancient Knights Templar

It turns out Henry, Hayes and Kiel had allegedly introduced themselves to police agencies across the state, though it is unclear why. A website claiming to represent their force cites connections to the Knights Templars that they say go back 3,000 years. The site also said that the department had jurisdiction in 33 states and Mexico.

“When asked what is the difference between the Masonic Fraternal Police Department and other police departments, the answer is simple for us. We were here first!” the website said.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said the whole effort was a ruse, though for what purpose remains unclear. The investigation is continuing.

Johnson said Kiel did most of the talking during their meeting. Kiel said in addition to his police position, he worked for Harris. When Kiel departed, Johnson said, he left his card from the state Department of Justice.

David Beltran, a spokesman for the state Department of Justice, said Kiel was placed on paid leave April 30 — the date he was arrested. He is paid $67,416 annually as deputy director of community affairs.

Harris has received regular briefings on the case since it began.

“The attorney general has been concerned about these serious allegations from the point she was first briefed on this investigation,” Beltran said. “Our office has been cooperating with investigators from the beginning and will continue to do so.”

Friends of Kiel rushed to his defense.

“I was in total disbelief. I still don't believe it,” Los Angeles businesswoman Ingrid Fields said. “This is not the Brandon that I or dozens of people know.”

Fields said she has known Kiel since he was a 6-year-old neighbor and was friends with Fields' daughter.

“He is smart, articulate and very, very ethical, which is why I find this hard to believe. He is a hard worker,” she said. “He is a brilliant guy who had a great political career ahead of him. I can't imagine him doing anything to jeopardize that.”

While Fields said she didn't know about the police connection, those who knew Henry said the 46-year-old was very open about his role.

Employees at the Backwoods Inn restaurant in Santa Clarita remember a day about a month ago when Henry — a regular customer — walked in with a swagger.

He wore a dark blue police uniform with badges and insignia on both arms. He told the staff at the country western-themed eatery off the Sierra Highway he was a police chief and handed out his business card with pride.

It read MASONIC FRATERNAL POLICE DEPARTMENT in capital letters and identified Henry as Chief Henry 33

“He was very big on saying ‘I'm the chief, I'm the chief,'” said one server who talked to him when he stopped by two or three times a week. She spoke on the condition that her name not be used.

“He carried himself like a cop, his uniform was spot on to a regular cop uniform, we all thought he was a legit cop,” said a chef at the restaurant. Henry regularly brought in his children.

Employees said Henry told them the department had set up offices in a strip mall next to a storefront church in Santa Clarita.

Church members said they didn't talk to their neighbors but said they saw a few men come and go dressed in sharp suits. They drove a black Lincoln town car with no license plates.

“We thought they were a security company,” said one church member.

Henry was charged with multiple misdemeanors and three counts of felony perjury. He is scheduled to be arraigned May 21.

Kiel is charged with six counts of impersonating an officer and unlawful use of a state ID. Hayes was charged with four counts of impersonating an officer. Both have been bailed out of jail and no court date has been set.

The three were members of a religious philanthropy group that does work in South Los Angeles. Their work put them in contact with various politicians and community leaders. A spokesman for Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles) confirmed that the group gave her an award in 2012. A photo shows Waters with Kiel and Henry.

The exact structure of the purported police department was unclear. But on the website, Henry is referred to as “Absolute Supreme Sovereign Grandmaster.”

Edit: they have 3k members

this of course is not to cast aspersion on the Senator Harris Funded by George Soros and Planned Parenthood..

http://www.lifenews.com/2016/09/28/emails-show-california-ag-kamala-harris-teamed-up-with-planned-parenthood-to-target-david-daleiden/
New emails show officials in the office of California Attorney General Kamala Harris teamed up with the Planned Parenthood abortion business to target David Daleiden, the pro-life advocate who filmed undercover videos exposing the abortion giant selling aborted baby parts.

Earlier this year, California authorities seized a laptop and hard drives containing the video footage collected during Daleiden’s 3-year investigation of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, according to a written statement made by Life Legal Defense Foundation, which is helping to defend Daleiden.

Harris, a pro-abortion Democrat, chose to focus her investigation on Daleiden and his associates rather than Planned Parenthood, even though the video footage so far released by Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress shows clear evidence that Planned Parenthood was illegally altering abortion procedures to endure intact organs targeted for harvesting then selling the organs for profit.

Weird Lectures

A Bottle of Spirits: Space Traveling Ghosts Caught!

It’s not uncommon these days for ghost-hunters to claim that they’ve communicated with denizens of the spirit world. Mostly, these communications come in the form breathy, almost indistinguishable sounds captured via a digital recording device or through a radio which has been, in some manner, broken. Yet, in 1913 two professors, Matla and Zaalberg Van Zeist believed they were in almost constant contact and communicating extensively with five ghosts which they had confined in air-tight tanks that they had constructed …with help from the ghosts themselves.

The brothers began their experiments by constructing a dial which displayed the full alphabet and had a needle which could be moved by the slightest force. They sat with a friend who was in the midst of dying and asked him to be the “messenger” between the world of the living and the afterlife. For seven nights the brothers tried to contact a spirit that could help them better understand what happens when humans die. Finally near the end of the week they received a response from a spirit claiming to be Magda Verouchine, a former Russian revolutionist. She explained to them how to better communicate with the spirit-world so that people around the world would more deeply understand that disembodied spirits did indeed exist.

She told them, “Construct a cylinder of thick glass lined inside and out with heavy lead. Place a dial on the outside similar to this one and make it so that the hand can be turned by a pin from within the cylinder. Construct the pin so that no material object can enter the cylinder by the hole through which it passes. Have the cylinder entirely closed. Then we will answer any questions you ask by means of the dial. People should thus be convinced that we really exist and are able to pass through solid objects. We are material but imperceptible to all human senses, except when we chose to manifest ourselves”

When the brothers completed building the containers they say that five spirits entered them and started communicating immediately. First they provided evidence, to prove who they had been in life, then they began answering questions about the after-life.

After a few weeks the dial on on the containers was replaced with a telegraph device so that answers could be received more rapidly. For weeks communication took place and the “spirits” answered a great number of questions about “life” after death and what the spirit-world was like. Some of the answers provided by the “spirits” were as follows…

“The soul is like a very fine gas held together by a type of electricity and can pass through all solid substances.”

“Souls are visible to one another.”

“The soul at first retains the form of the body but this becomes modified. The limbs are of no further use and the spirit takes a form like a vast amoeba, because that is best adapted for passage through space at great speed. This speed is so great that it would seem to earthly senses that the soul has the power of being everywhere at once. In reality it moves from place to place.”

“The longer a soul has left the body the less it is inclined to revisit the Earth. It becomes unable to communicate clearly with the earth dwellers. The wars, crimes and passions of Earth cause unbearable pain to its delicate organism.”

“Eventually the soul is able to leave the solar system and wander at will through all of space.”

“The soul possesses eyes . Those eyes are enormous and are able to see to the limits of the universe. They have the power of perceiving all light ultra-violet rays and are consequently able to see through solid bodies.”

The continued experiments by the brothers and all of their findings were to be published in Amsterdam in one volume in 1913. But no one must have read it because a lot of people still think ghosts are bunk.

So there you go… ghosts caught, questions answered. Now go outside and enjoy the day.

Hungary Launches CrackDown on Soros NGOs!

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-10/hungary-launch-crackdown-all-george-soros-funded-organizations
In a dramatic example of blowback against the establishment in the post-Trumpian world, Hungary announced it plans to crack down on non-governmental organizations linked to billionaire George Soros now that Donald Trump will occupy the White House, according to the deputy head of Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s party, cited by Bloomberg.




The European Union member, and native country of Soros, will use "all the tools at its disposal" to “sweep out” NGOs funded by the Hungarian-born financier, which “serve global capitalists and back political correctness over national governments,” Szilard Nemeth, a vice president of the ruling Fidesz party, told reporters on Tuesday. No one answered the phone at the Open Society Institute in Budapest when Bloomberg News called outside business hours.

“I feel that there is an opportunity for this, internationally,” because of Trump’s election, state news service MTI reported Nemeth as saying. Lawmakers will start debating a bill to let authorities audit NGO executives, according to parliament’s legislative agenda.

As a reminder, Orban was the first European leader to publicly back Trump’s campaign, and was reportedly invited by Trump to visit the US; he has ignored criticism from the European Commission and U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration for building a self-described “illiberal state” modeled on authoritarian regimes including Russia, China and Turkey. In 2014, Orban personally ordered the state audit agency to probe foundations financed by Norway and said that civil society groups financed from abroad were covers for “paid political activists.” As a result of Trump's victory, Orban has felt empowered to further last out against Europe's established structures, and its core supporters.

As Bloomberg notes, Orban and his administration have repeatedly singled out NGOs supported by Soros, a prominent Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party supporter, with a wide network of organizations that promote democracy in formerly communist eastern Europe.

Orban is not alone: Trump has also accused the 86-year-old billionaire of being part of “a global power structure that is responsible for the economic decisions that have robbed our working class, stripped our country of its wealth and put that money into the pockets of a handful of large corporations and political entities.” In a pre-election commercial, he showed images of Soros along with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. CEO Lloyd Blankfein, all of whom are Jewish. The Anti-Defamation League criticized the ad for touching on “subjects that anti-Semites have used for ages.”

Since then things have changed, however, and Trump has retained the services of two prominent Goldman alumni, Steven Mnuchin and Gary Cohn, to serve on his administration. His current thinking on George Soros is unknown.

4Chan Claims To Have Fabricated Anti-Trump Report As A Hoax

In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous "golden showers" scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as "fanfiction", then sent to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election.

Here is 4Chan's explanation of how the story came to light:

>/pol/acks mailed fanfiction to anti-trump pundit Rick Wilson about trump making people piss on a bed obama slept in

>he thought it was real and gave it to the CIA

>the central intelligence agency of the united states of america put this in their official classified intelligence report on russian involvement in the election

>donald trump and obama have both read this pol/acks fanfiction

>the cia has concluded that the russian plans to blackmail trump with this story we made up

just let that sink in what we have become.

— Mr Bones (@mrbones_returns) January 11, 2017

And a summary posted on pastebin:

On january 10, Buzzfeed posted a story under the byline of Ken Bensinger, Mark Schoofs and Miriam elder titled “these reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia” and posted a link to a document alleging, among other things, that russia has been cultivating trump for 5+ years, that trump has been in constant contact with the kremlin for information on his opponents, and perhaps most inflammatory, that there are many recorded instances of blackmail of trump in sexual misconduct. A prominent claim is that trump rented the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in moscow, where he knew that the Obamas had slept in; he them hired a number of prostitutes to perform a 'golden shower' (pissplay) on the bed and in the room. https://www.buzzfeed.com/kenbensinger/these-reports-allege-trump-has-dee...
https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/3259984/Trump-Intelligence-Al...



Noted #nevertrump voice Rick Wilson later commented on twitter, stating that the report “gave a new meaning to Wikileaks” (https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status/818982395202379777) and that the report was the reason everybody was fighting so hard against the election of Trump. (https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status/818983514335047680)



The remarkable thing? It's all fake. And not only fake; it's a prank perpetuated by 4chan, on Rick Wilson himself. A post on 4chan on october 26 stated “mfw managed to convince CTR and certain (((journalists))) on Twitter there'll be an October surprise on Trump this Friday” along with a picture of a smug face with a hash name. http://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/94704894/#94705224



on november 1, a person without a picture but is assumed to be the same person posted “So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it. They still believe it. Guys, they're truly fucking desperate - there's no remaining Trump scandal that's credible.” https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/95568919/#95571329



on january 10, moments after the story broke and began to gain traction on social media, a person with the same smug grin face, and the same hash title for the picture, stated “I didn't think they'd take it so far.” http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/106514445#p106520376



This story has taken on something of a life of it's own. Going through Rick Wilson's twitter, you can find many different stories from the time that he had shown the story to a wide number of anti-trump news sources, trying to find a news organization that would actually publish the story. During that time period, he referred to it often as 'the thing', and often playing coy with followers on the content with the story with anybody who was not also a #Nevertrumper. Unconfirmed sources has people as high up as John McCain giving the story to FBI Director James Comey to attempt to verify the story. Given that Rick Wilson runs in Establishment circles, it is not an impossible scenario that long-serving senators are falling for what amounts to a 4chan troll trump supporter creating an ironic October Surprise out of wholecloth to punk a GOPe pundit who derogatorily referred to them as single men who masturbate to anime.

While this entire incident is laughable, and even more so if the 4Chan account is accurate, what makes it quite tragic, is that it is no longer possible to dismiss the "fake news" angle to an intelligence report. And if the CIA is compromised, what is left for "news outlets" like CNN and BuzzFeed, which were all too eager to run with the story without any attempt at verification?

MRI scans reveal surprising similarities in activity patterns of infant and adult visual cortex

January 11, 2017 by Anne Trafton

In adults, certain regions of the brain's visual cortex respond preferentially to specific types of input, such as faces or objects—but how and when those preferences arise has long puzzled neuroscientists.

One way to help answer that question is to study the brains of very young infants and compare them to adult brains. However, scanning the brains of awake babies in an MRI machine has proven difficult.

Now, neuroscientists at MIT have overcome that obstacle, adapting their MRI scanner to make it easier to scan infants' brains as the babies watch movies featuring different types of visual input. Using these data, the team found that in some ways, the organization of infants' brains is surprisingly similar to that of adults. Specifically, brain regions that respond to faces in adults do the same in babies, as do regions that respond to scenes.

"It suggests that there's a stronger biological predisposition than I would have guessed for specific cortical regions to end up with specific functions," says Rebecca Saxe, a professor of brain and cognitive sciences and member of MIT's McGovern Institute for Brain Research.

Saxe is the senior author of the study, which appears in the Jan. 10 issue of Nature Communications. The paper's lead author is former MIT graduate student Ben Deen, who is now a postdoc at Rockefeller University.

MRI adaptations

Functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is the go-to technique for studying brain function in adults. However, very few researchers have taken on the challenge of trying to scan babies' brains, especially while they are awake.

I did what any citizen should do': Sworn Trump enemy John McCain admits HE handed smear dossier to FBI - because he had no idea if it was credible

John McCain admitted Wednesday that he passed the dossier of claims of a Russian blackmail plot against the president-elect - calling it 'what any citizen should do'.

That's why I gave it to the FBI. I don't know if it is credible or not but the information I thought deserved to be delivered to the FBI, the appropriate agency of government.'

He added: 'It doesn't trouble me because I don't know if it is accurate or not. I have no way of corroborating that.

'The individual gave me the information. I looked at it. After receiving that information I took it to the FBI.'

He added that he was now aware from media reports that the FBI was apparently already in possession of the information. '

The Arizona senator had issued a public statement amid mounting questions of his exact role in the affair - and how a document riddled with errors and unverifiable claims came to be published.

The chain of how the document reached the FBI is not officially known.

However Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporter who contributed to the first story about its existence, published by CNN on Tuesday afternoon, suggested that McCain was handed it by a former British ambassador to Moscow.

Bernstein told CNN: 'It came from a former British MI6 agent who was hired from a political opposition research firm in Washington who was doing work about Donald Trump for both republican and democratic candidates opposed to Trump.

Dead Giveaway The 35 Page Dossier Was A Hoax? The British Don't Use "Confidential," They use "Official"
The identity of the British intelligence officer responsible for preparing and delivering the now infamous 35 page hoax has been revealed as Christopher Steele, courtesy of the Wall St. Journal. If you want to dig into his profile, click here.

As people piece together this rapidly unfolding quagmire - which will be in the history books, it's important to address as many facets as possible in order to avoid perpetuating #FakeNews. As Oliver Stone said, more or less, the MSM is biased - and alternative news has the real deal, so let's discuss.



A friend pointed this out earlier:

--------------------

It has come out that the dossier and supporting documentation were fabricated by an anonymous 4Chan user, who sent the hoax to a RINO named Rick Wilson back in the Fall of last year. Rick Wilson is (in)famous for his description of Trump supporters as “single white males who masturbate to anime”. The 4Chan user wanted to embarrass Rick Wilson, who apparently tried to shop the fabrication to MSM without success (cuz they couldn’t “source” it, given that the entire documentation is a fake).

The alleged origination of a British agent as the source can be considered a “trap for the unwary,” which would easily demonstrate the documentation was an obvious forgery because the UK does not use the “Confidential” designation, although US intelligence agencies do. In the US, classified information is designated as “Confidential”, “Secret” and “Top Secret” (along with a whole host of other designations for more highly sensitive information such as nuclear weapons designs). The British use “Official”, “Secret” and “Top Secret”. Anyone who checked on the story would instantly recognize this defect if they knew (or discovered) anything about British classification schemes, but if someone didn’t check they’d simply assume the British uses the same classification designations as the US.

Apparently, Wilson also sent the falsified documentation to the CIA and they may, or may not have, bought it. The CIA subsequently “leaked” it to various news agencies, and both CNN and Buzz Feed bought the CIA leak. The CIA also admitted to briefing both Obama & Trump on the false documentation, but now claim they only cited it as an example of “disinformation” that’s floating around out there. Seemingly, whomever at the CIA leaked this story and its documentation to CNN and Buzz Feed didn’t identify it as “disinformation”. For extra brownie points McCain claims he received a classified briefing on the bed wetting episode in December and asked FBI’s head Comey to investigate! It should be obvious McCain would not have done so had the CIA had told him the information was known to be fake.

Now, it's possible that Steele - an ex-UK intelligence officer in private practice, simply used the US designation for the convenience of US intel (or to mask the origination) - BUT, we're also talking about the same guy who bought the #GoldenShower story that several journalists and news outlets wouldn't touch.

So, by the transitive properties of "the guy who bought the 4chan hoax," I think we can assume Steele would have defaulted to a career-long habit of using the UK designation on this 35 page dossier he cobbled together.

On the other side of the pond, what are we left to assume? Let's ignore the classification thing for a moment. For one, the CIA could have easily looked into Michael Cohen's travel records (the Trump lawyer the dossier accuses of going to Prague to meet with Russians) and ruled that out - immediately discrediting the document. Second, Trump is apparently a bit of a germaphobe. I don't blame him, people are filthy. Shouldn't the CIA know something that obvious about such a well known figure?

germo

We are left to conclude:

- The CIA figured out this was a hoax and just let McCain, CNN, and Buzzfeed make McAss. That's an interesting conversation, if so.

- The CIA didn't know - as in, nobody who handled this document knew or checked into why a doc from a Brit would have US classification markings, or the Prague visit, or Golden Showers. A frightening thought.

- Steele didn't prepare the report.

What say you?

Left Wing Vegan Denied Swiss Passport Because She’s ‘Too Annoying’
http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/01/11/leftwing-vegan-denied-swiss-passport-shes-annoying/

A left wing Dutch vegan who has lived in Switzerland since she was a child has been denied a Swiss passport because locals in her adoptive town find her too annoying.

Nancy Holten, 42, is a self-described animal rights activist who has campaigned against the Swiss tradition of cow bells, calling them cruel.

Despite living in the country since the age of eight, and speaking fluent Swiss German, local residents vetoed her application of citizenship, saying they were “fed up” with her challenging their traditions.

The Dutchwoman explained her views: “The sound that cow bells make is a hundred decibel. It is comparable with a pneumatic drill. We also would not want such a thing hanging close to our ears?”

“The bells, which the cows have to wear when they walk to and from the pasture, are especially heavy.

“The animals carry around five kilograms around their neck. It causes friction and burns to their skin.”

Aargauer Zeitung says that as well as cow bells, she has also campaigned against other Swiss traditions including hunting, pig racing, and even loud church bells.

Local politician Tanja Suter said Ms. Holten had a “big mouth” and she does not deserve a Swiss passport “if she irritates us and does not respect our traditions”.

Ms Holten herself admits: “I think I spoke my mind too often, and I say it out too loud.”

Under Switzerland’s highly decentralised constitution, local towns and regions grant citizenship rather than the central government, and some give citizens a vote on who gets a passport.

Villagers in Gipf-Oberfrick in the canton of Aargau voted by 206 to 144 to reject Ms. Holten’s application for citizenship in 2015, and have now rejected that application a second time.

The case will now go to the regional government, which can overrule the vote and grant her citizenship anyway.

Switzerland has some of the tightest citizenship laws in the world, and being born in the country often does not grant the children of immigrants an automatic right to a passport

Science Alert

These Brazilian vampire bats have started feeding on humans for the first time

They've developed a taste for us.

BEC CREW
12 JAN 2017

As intimidating as they might sound, vampire bats aren’t usually in the business of bothering humans for their blood. In fact, the hairy-legged vampire bat species was thought to feed almost exclusively on birds.

But researchers have discovered that hairy-legged vampire bats in north-east Brazil have managed to kick things up a notch - they’ve been caught feeding on humans by night, and that’s something no one even thought was possible.

"We were quite surprised," Enrico Bernard from the Federal University of Pernambuco in Brazil told New Scientist.

"This species isn’t adapted to feed on the blood of mammals."

Before scientists made this rather disturbing discovery, if you had to pick a species of vampire bat to be most worried about, the common vampire bat (Desmodus rotundus) would have been the obvious choice.

There are three existing species of vampire bat, all native to the Americas, and the common vampire bat is the only one that prefers the blood of mammals.

Domesticated animals, such as cows, horses, and pigs, are the preferred hosts of these nocturnal parasites, but despite having a taste for mammal blood, the common vampire bat very rarely targets humans.

And then there’s the white-winged vampire bat (Diaemus youngi) and the hairy-legged vampire bat (Diphylla ecaudata), which were thought to feed primarily on birds, such as domestic chickens.

What should theoretically keep humans safe from these bird-targeting bats is the fact that feeding on blood is an extremely difficult adaptation for a mammal to achieve.

Extreme morphological, physiological, and behavioural adaptations are required for a species to evolve as blood-feeders, and suddenly switching from avian to mammal blood? That didn’t even seem possible.

As Bernard and his team report:

"Mammal and bird blood differ in their composition, mainly in terms of nutrient composition. Bird blood, for example, has higher amount of water and fat, whereas mammal blood is rich in dry matter, mainly proteins.

Studies on the feeding physiology of the common vampire bat D. rotundus showed that this species has physiological characteristics that allow higher efficiency in protein processing.

On the other hand, species with a preference for bird blood, such as D. youngi and D. ecaudata, have higher ability to process and use large amounts of fat found in the blood of their prey."

And it’s not just the theoretical challenges that appear to be involved in switching between a diet of avian blood and a diet of mammal blood.

As Sandrine Ceurstemont reports for New Scientist, previous experiments have shown that when only pig and goat blood was made available to bats that were used to bird blood, many of them opted to fast rather than diversify their diet - and sometimes even starved to death.

But when Bernard and his team investigated the diets of a colony of hairy-legged vampire bats in the Caatinga dry forests of northeastern Brazil, they found something strange.

Genetic analysis of 15 faecal samples contained bird DNA as expected, but 3 of those samples contained a mixture of human and bird DNA - evidence that these particular individuals had been feeding on both.

Interestingly, the team notes that these bats’ most common grey - the white-browed guan, the yellow-legged tinamou, and the picazuro pigeon - have been disappearing in the area due to deforestation and hunting.

Domesticated birds such as chickens presented an even more tempting option in the face of large wild birds declining, and because many of the locals keep their chickens in close contact, the desperate bats developed a taste for both.

"House conditions in Catimbau are usually poor, and domestic animals are usually in close contact with humans, what may explain the occurrence of both chicken and human blood in our samples," the team reports.

There are a lot of open questions here - the biggest one being exactly how this colony of bats is able to process the protein-heavy blood of humans, when they’ve evolved to digest the fat-rich blood of birds instead.

The other question is if this could pose a serious risk to their new human hosts.

As Daniel Becker from the University of Georgia, who wasn’t involved in the study, told New Scientist, the species has been found to carry the hantavirus in the past - and this can be fatal to humans who are infected by it.

The research has been published in Acta Chiropterologica.

Robot kill switches & legal status: MEPs endorse AI proposal

https://www.rt.com/viral/373450-robot-kill-switches-status/

A European Parliament committee has voted in favor of a draft report that proposes granting legal status to robots, categorizing them as “electronic persons”.

The draft report, approved by 17 votes to two and two abstentions by the European Parliament Committee on Legal Affairs, proposes that “The most sophisticated autonomous robots could be established as having the status of electronic persons with specific rights and obligations, including that of making good any damage they may cause.”


"the report proposes definitions and outlines rules to govern how robots interact with humans “now that humankind stands on the threshold of an era” that it claims will see artificial intelligence (AI) “unleash a new industrial revolution.”

AI developers will have to ensure their creations follow a set of rules that prohibit them from harming a human or allowing a human to come to harm through their inaction. AI can protect their own existence under the rules, if this does not harm any humans.

User Image

“A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm,” the rules state.

An opt-out mechanism or kill switch is also proposed in the report, ensuring any rogue robots can be turned off easily (provided the designer hasn’t let their AI outsmart them).

4Chan Claims To Have Fabricated Anti-Trump Report As A Hoax

In a story that is getting more surreal by the minute, a post on 4Chan now claims that the infamous "golden showers" scene in the unverified 35-page dossier, allegedly compiled by a British intelligence officer, was a hoax and fabricated by a member of the chatboard as "fanfiction", then sent to Rick Wilson, who proceeded to send it to the CIA, which then put it in their official classified intelligence report on the election.

Here is 4Chan's explanation of how the story came to light:

>/pol/acks mailed fanfiction to anti-trump pundit Rick Wilson about trump making people piss on a bed obama slept in

>he thought it was real and gave it to the CIA

>the central intelligence agency of the united states of america put this in their official classified intelligence report on russian involvement in the election

>donald trump and obama have both read this pol/acks fanfiction

>the cia has concluded that the russian plans to blackmail trump with this story we made up

just let that sink in what we have become.

— Mr Bones (@mrbones_returns) January 11, 2017

And a summary posted on pastebin:

On january 10, Buzzfeed posted a story under the byline of Ken Bensinger, Mark Schoofs and Miriam elder titled “these reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia” and posted a link to a document alleging, among other things, that russia has been cultivating trump for 5+ years, that trump has been in constant contact with the kremlin for information on his opponents, and perhaps most inflammatory, that there are many recorded instances of blackmail of trump in sexual misconduct. A prominent claim is that trump rented the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in moscow, where he knew that the Obamas had slept in; he them hired a number of prostitutes to perform a 'golden shower' (pissplay) on the bed and in the room. https://www.buzzfeed.com/kenbensinger/these-reports-allege-trump-has-dee...
https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/3259984/Trump-Intelligence-Al...



Noted #nevertrump voice Rick Wilson later commented on twitter, stating that the report “gave a new meaning to Wikileaks” (https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status/818982395202379777) and that the report was the reason everybody was fighting so hard against the election of Trump. (https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/status/818983514335047680)



The remarkable thing? It's all fake. And not only fake; it's a prank perpetuated by 4chan, on Rick Wilson himself. A post on 4chan on october 26 stated “mfw managed to convince CTR and certain (((journalists))) on Twitter there'll be an October surprise on Trump this Friday” along with a picture of a smug face with a hash name. http://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/94704894/#94705224



on november 1, a person without a picture but is assumed to be the same person posted “So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it. They still believe it. Guys, they're truly fucking desperate - there's no remaining Trump scandal that's credible.” https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/95568919/#95571329



on january 10, moments after the story broke and began to gain traction on social media, a person with the same smug grin face, and the same hash title for the picture, stated “I didn't think they'd take it so far.” http://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/106514445#p106520376



This story has taken on something of a life of it's own. Going through Rick Wilson's twitter, you can find many different stories from the time that he had shown the story to a wide number of anti-trump news sources, trying to find a news organization that would actually publish the story. During that time period, he referred to it often as 'the thing', and often playing coy with followers on the content with the story with anybody who was not also a #Nevertrumper. Unconfirmed sources has people as high up as John McCain giving the story to FBI Director James Comey to attempt to verify the story. Given that Rick Wilson runs in Establishment circles, it is not an impossible scenario that long-serving senators are falling for what amounts to a 4chan troll trump supporter creating an ironic October Surprise out of wholecloth to punk a GOPe pundit who derogatorily referred to them as single men who masturbate to anime.

While this entire incident is laughable, and even more so if the 4Chan account is accurate, what makes it quite tragic, is that it is no longer possible to dismiss the "fake news" angle to an intelligence report. And if the CIA is compromised, what is left for "news outlets" like CNN and BuzzFeed, which were all too eager to run with the story without any attempt at verification?


Fascinating angle on the story, thanks Sys. I thought it a bad move to put out such blackmail allegations and news of Trump's CIA briefing shortly before the inaugoration, regardless if any were true or false, because it is disruptive to the transition of power, thus to American Democracy itself.

Being global and being deep within our own alphabets the FeeBees can't be trusted nor the present Justice Dept., It will have to be done by Special Prosecutor. It may even end up being a major treason trail.

Under the rules of the Special Prosecutor The President can appoint anyone to it.

All those great high ranking officers who were railroaded out of their jobs in Obamas purge just happen to know where all the massive screwups of the Administration are buried!

Many are not only officers but lawyers and they are the perfect investigators to be given the powers of a subpoena and grand jury!

Illinois Man Sues Over Arrest for Flag Burning

January 13, 2017

We previously discussed the case of Bruyton Mellott who was arrested after posting online pictures of himself burning an American flag has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to have the state’s flag desecration law declared unconstitutional. The 22-year-old the Wal-Mart employee was charged with flag desecration despite two Supreme Court cases clearly saying that such an act is constitutionally protected. After various experts (including myself) said that the arrest was unconstitutional, the charges were dropped, but Mellott is now suing. I personally find Mellott’s actions to be highly offensive and disturbing. I have never understood the burning of the flag which represents our collective rights, including free speech. Unfortunately, important free speech cases are often triggered by the most reprehensible forms of speech or most reprehensible individuals. In the end, the lawsuit may force legislators to confront the fact that they have continued a facially unconstitutional law on their books because they fear the political backlash if they comply with long-standing Supreme Court precedent.

Mellott, who is being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois and his complaint names several police officers. Urbana police have said they arrested Mellott to protect him from possible backlash from the online posts. He is seeking unspecified damages.

Supreme Court has stated clearly that flag burning is protected under the first amendment in Texas v. Johnson (1989) and U.S. v. Eichman (1990).

Police say that they responded to demands from citizens for an arrest – hardly a convincing defense to say that we were merely trying to appease the public with an unconstitutional arrest. What is equally bizarre is that he was charged with disorderly conduct as well as being the victim of disorderly conduct. His conduct was deemed as “causing others to be put at risk of harm.” That is facially ridiculous. Just as the act is constitutionally protected, you cannot charge some for the response of others to a constitutionally protected act. It is like arresting a journalist for the response of a reader to an article.

In an interview, the late Associate Justice Antonin Scalia explained why flag burning is protected speech:

“If I were king, I would not allow people to go around burning the American flag. However, we have a First Amendment, which says that the right of free speech shall not be abridged — and it is addressed in particular to speech critical of the government,” Scalia said. “That was the main kind of speech that tyrants would seek to suppress.”

It is time for the legislator in Illinois to take as principled a stand and repeal this unconstitutional law. We can then continue as a society to denounce offensive acts like Mellott’s flag burning as a desecration of not only the flag but the rights that it represents.

Donald Trump dossier: intelligence sources vouch for author's credibility

by Nick Hopkins
and Luke Harding
Thursday 12 January 2017

His denials – at least some of them – were emphatic, even by the standards that Donald Trump has come to be judged by. The dossier, he said, was a confection of lies; he compared it to Nazi propaganda; it was fake news spread by sick people.

At his press briefing on Wednesday, the president-elect dared the world’s media to scrutinise the 35 pages of claims, before throwing down a challenge – where’s the proof? Nobody had any. Case closed.

But in the rush to trample all over the dossier and its contents, one key question remained. Why had America’s intelligence agencies felt it necessary to provide a compendium of the claims to Barack Obama and Trump himself?

And the answer to that lies in the credibility of its apparent author, the ex-MI6 officer Christopher Steele, the quality of the sources he has, and the quality of the people who were prepared to vouch for him. In all these respects, the 53-year-old is in credit.

On Thursday night, as the former spy was in hiding, having fled his home in the south-east of England, former colleagues rallied to defend him. One described him as “very credible” – a sober, cautious and meticulous professional with a formidable record.

The former Foreign Office official, who has known Steele for 25 years and considers him a friend, said: “The idea his work is fake or a cowboy operation is false – completely untrue. Chris is an experienced and highly regarded professional. He’s not the sort of person who will simply pass on gossip."

The official added: “If he puts something in a report, he believes there’s sufficient credibility in it for it to be worth considering. Chris is a very straight guy. He could not have survived in the job he was in if he had been prone to flights of fancy or doing things in an ill-considered way.”

That is the way the CIA and the FBI, not to mention the British government, regarded him, too. It’s not hard to see why.

A Cambridge graduate, Steele was one of the more eminent Russia specialists for the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6). The Guardian understands that he focused on Soviet affairs after joining the agency, and spent two years living in Moscow in the early 1990s.

This was a period when Russia and the breakup of the eastern bloc were still the prime focus for Britain’s intelligence agencies, and a successful spell in the region was a good way to get on.

By all accounts, that’s exactly what Steele did. And his interest in Russia did not diminish as he continued to rise up the ranks, a friend and contemporary of Alex Younger – now head of MI6.

Over a career that spanned more than 20 years, Steele performed a series of roles, but always appeared to be drawn back to Russia; he was, sources say, head of MI6’s Russia desk. When the agency was plunged into panic over the poisoning of its agent Alexander Litvinenko in 2006, the then chief, Sir John Scarlett, needed a trusted senior officer to plot a way through the minefield ahead – so he turned to Steele. It was Steele, sources say, who correctly and quickly realised that Litvinenko’s death was a Russian state “hit”.

As good as he was, Steele was unlikely to get the top MI6 job, perhaps because his specialisms were not a priority in that period – Russian espionage was taking a back seat to Islamic terrorism and non-state threats. And, of course, there is money to be made in the private sector – lots of it, particularly in the past two years. He decided to quit the service in 2009.

As the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, exerted influence in all kinds of spheres, so Steele’s background made him hot property. Though he could not travel to Russia, he appears to have maintained his contacts and made new ones, using old-school techniques: going out, meeting people, shaking hands, making friends – and paying for information.

With his business partner, Chris Burrows, he set up the London-based company Orbis Business Intelligence, which was busy and expanding. Their operation would have been a good choice for anyone trying to gather intelligence about Russia and Trump.

It is unlikely that Steele would have had direct contact with the unnamed Kremlin officials who allegedly gave sensitive information on the president-elect. In fact, it’s believed the former spy hasn’t been able to visit Russia for more than 20 years. Rather, Steele would have tapped up his network of sources deep inside the country, some of them dating from his time there and others cultivated later, British officials suggested.

In turn, these individuals will have had sources of their own. Steele would likely have subcontracted some of his Trump investigation to trusted intermediaries in Moscow, who will have reported back to him via secure channels.

Shootout at U.S. Consulate Part of Terrorist Attack Plan for Inauguration

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch
Jan. 13, 2017

Over the years we have educated American on a dire threat as a result of our open southern border. It consists of the deadly drug cartels, of course, but also Islamic terrorists who find common ground with the narcotics traffickers. This week our Corruption Chronicles blog tells of an imminent threat from this unholy alliance that is tied to the inauguration of Donald Trump:

A deadly shootout at the construction site of the new American consulate occurred this week in a Mexican border town where Islamic terrorists and drug cartels plan to launch attacks against the U.S. during the period surrounding the presidential inauguration, high-level government sources tell Judicial Watch.

An unknown number of gunmen fired multiple rounds adjacent to the new U.S. consulate compound in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a crime-infested city in the state of Tamaulipas that lies directly across from Laredo, Texas.

The Mexican military responded to the attack, law enforcement sources on both sides of the border confirm, insisting that their identities be kept confidential for security reasons, and at least three soldiers were either killed or critically wounded in the ambush.

A local newspaper in Tamaulipas reported that 13 people died during a shootout in Nuevo Laredo, referring to the deceased as heavily armed “delinquents” with an arsenal that includes 12 automatic weapons, a rocket launcher, grenade, loads of ammunition and drugs in three vehicles, one of them armored. The deceased have not been identified and Mexican authorities will continue to investigate, the article states, attributing the information to a press release issued by Mexico’s Defense Secretary.

Judicial Watch’s law enforcement and intelligence sources say the barrage outside what’s soon to be the new U.S. consulate is connected to a broad operation between Islamic terrorists and Mexican drug cartels to send President-elect Donald Trump a message by engaging in attacks at border ports.

“Cartels usually don’t work with jihadists for fear of having the border shut down,” a veteran federal law enforcement official told Judicial Watch. “But Trump is causing so much disruption in Mexico that they are partnering to send a message as to who is in control. This is as outrageous as a small group of guys crashing planes into U.S. buildings.” Another official who has worked in the region for years said “Trump is causing a huge amount of fear in Mexico throughout all sectors; private, government, business, criminal, police….”

Nuevo Laredo is among the border towns that the terrorists and narcotraffickers plan to launch attacks in, according to intelligence gathered by law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and Mexico. Others include Matamoros, Reynosa and Ciudad Juárez. In 2015 Judicial Watch reported that ISIS is operating a camp just west of Ciudad Juárez, around eight miles from El Paso. Sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and Mexican Federal Police inspector revealed that, during a joint operation, they discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation in El Paso that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Just last week Judicial Watch reported that a Jihadi-cartel alliance in the Mexican state of Nuevo León is collaborating to carry out attacks in American cities and ports of entry along the southern border. Confidential U.S. and Mexican law enforcement sources said that, as part of the plan, militant Islamists have arrived recently at the Monterrey International Airport situated in Apodaca, Nuevo León, about 130 miles south of the Texas border. An internal Mexican law enforcement report obtained by Judicial Watch confirms that Islamic terrorists have “people along the border, principally in Tijuana, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León and Tamaulipas.” Cartel informants tell law enforcement contacts that “they are only waiting for the order and the times to carry out a simultaneous attack in the different ports of entry or cities of the United States of America.”

The area where this week’s shootout originated is a 5.6-acre parcel just south of downtown Nuevo Laredo on Paseo Colon. The State Department predicts that by September the new U.S. consulate compound, which broke ground in mid-2015 and will cost $155 million, should be completed. It will have multiple buildings, including an office structure, U.S. Marine Security Guard residence, support annex and other facilities for the consulate community. The primary function of consulates is helping and protecting Americans abroad.

Unfortunately, given the Obama Administration’s criminal laxity with anything to do with border safety, the term “Wild West” is a reality. And because the press isn’t interested, most Americans aren’t aware of the threat.

Let’s pray law enforcement is paying attention to our clarion calls on this issue and nothing terrible happens. We will monitor the serious situation and will alert you on any major new developments.

Until next week...

Tom Fitton
President

Bigfoot family of six captured on video on Xmas day at Yellowstone? Watch it til the end and see something very unusual that was captured off of Old Faithful's live cam on Christmas day 2016. It all began during a lull in the geyser's eruption cycle when the Yellowstone cam was turned to view another geyser erupting far away. As I watch my monitors I noticed that the location looked familiar and that's because of the "Bigfoot vs Buffalo" video that was filmed by Mary Greeley in the same general area. Then I noticed something moving around, grabbed my cell phone and started filming what appeared to be two individuals, dressed in black, sitting down in the snow. Soon a third figure appeared, then a forth, and finally two more joined the group and all dressed in black. The four new arrivals stood shoulder to shoulder all facing the same direction towards the Yellowstone webcam while the other two remained sitting in the snow. The webcam operator suddenly zoomed out and swung their camera back on Old Faithful. I think the last four are the same guys from the "Bigfoot vs Buffalo" vid. My biggest fear is that because of the poor quality nobody will watch it or think it could be important. Sure the video is awful and blurry but look at it a couple of times and you realize it is still good enough to make out what is happening. You can see them interacting with each other using hand gestures pointing out things in the distance and even patting one another on the back. My 10 year old nephew pointed out something I had missed. The last bigfoot to appear in both Mary Greeley's video and my video is the biggest one. Also the first video implied they were possibly hunting buffalo but the direction in which they're heading leads to where I filmed them. In other words that is where they live!

This makes the e-mail rounds every so often, but that's OK; it needs to be read over and over.



The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it.....
The American flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died serving it."



AN AIRLINE CAPTAIN'S REPORT

My lead flight attendant came to me and said, "We have an H.R. on this
flight." (H.R. stands for Human Remains.)

"Are they military?" I asked.

'Yes', she said.

'Is there an escort?' I asked.

'Yes, I've already assigned him a seat'.

'Would you please tell him to come to the Flight Deck. You can board him
early," I said...

A short while later a young army sergeant entered the flight deck. He was
the image of the perfectly dressed soldier. He introduced himself and I
asked him about his soldier.

The escorts of these fallen soldiers talk about them as if they are still
alive and still with us. 'My soldier is on his way back to Virginia,' he
said. He proceeded to answer my questions, but offered no words.

I asked him if there was anything I could do for him and he said no. I told
him that he had the toughest job in the military, and that I appreciated the
work that he does for the families of our fallen soldiers. The first officer and
I got up out of our seats to shake his hand. He left the Flight
Deck to find his seat.

We completed our preflight checks, pushed back and performed an uneventful
departure. About 30 minutes into our flight, I received a call from the lead flight attendant in the cabin.

'I just found out the family of the soldier we are carrying, is also on board', she said. She then proceeded to tell me that the father, mother, wife and 2-year old daughter were escorting their son, husband, and father
home. The family was upset because they were unable to see the container
that the soldier was in before we left.

We were on our way to a major hub at which the family was going to wait four
hours for the connecting flight home to Virginia. The father of the soldier told the flight attendant that knowing his son was below him in the cargo compartment and being unable to see him was too much for him and the family to bear. He had asked the flight attendant if there was anything that could be done to allow them to see him upon our arrival. The family wanted to be outside by the cargo door to watch the soldier being taken off the airplane.

I could hear the desperation in the flight attendants voice when she asked
me if there was anything I could do. 'I'm on it', I said. I told her that I
would get back to her.

Airborne communication with my company normally occurs in the form of e-mail
like messages. I decided to bypass this system and contact my flight dispatcher directly on a secondary radio. There is a radio operator in the operations control center who connects you to the telephone of the dispatcher. I was in direct contact with the dispatcher. I explained the situation I had on board with the family and what it was the family wanted. He said he understood and that he would get back to me.

Two hours went by and I had not heard from the dispatcher. We were going to get busy soon and I needed to know what to tell the family. I sent a text message asking for an update. I saved the return message from the dispatcher and the following is the text:

"Captain, sorry it has taken so long to get back to you. There is policy on this now, and I had to check on a few things. Upon your arrival a dedicated escort team will meet the aircraft. The team will escort the family to the ramp and plane side. A van will be used to load the remains with a secondary van for the family.

The family will be taken to their departure area and escorted into the terminal, where the remains can be seen on the ramp. It is a private area for the family only. When the connecting aircraft arrives, the family will be escorted onto the ramp and plane side to watch the remains being loaded for the final leg home.

“Captain, most of us here in flight control are veterans. Please pass our condolences on to the family. Thanks.”


I sent a message back, telling flight control thanks for a good job. I printed out the message and gave it to the lead flight attendant to pass on to the father. The lead flight attendant was very thankful and told me, 'You have no idea how much this will mean to them.'

Things started getting busy for the descent, approach and landing. After landing, we cleared the runway and taxied to the ramp area. The ramp is huge with 15 gates on either side of the alleyway. It is always a busy area with aircraft maneuvering every which way to enter and exit. When we entered the ramp and checked in with the ramp controller, we were told that all traffic was being held for us.

'There is a team in place to meet the aircraft', we were told. It looked like it was all coming together, then I realized that once we turned the seat belt sign off, everyone would stand up at once and delay the family from getting off the airplane. As we approached our gate, I asked the copilot to tell the ramp controller, we were going to stop short of the gate to make an announcement to the passengers. He did that and the ramp controller said, 'Take your time.'

I stopped the aircraft and set the parking brake. I pushed the public address button and said: 'Ladies and gentleman, this is your Captain speaking: I have stopped short of our gate to make a special announcement. We have a passenger on board who deserves our honor and respect. His name is Private XXXXXX, a soldier who recently lost his life. Private XXXXXX is under your feet in the cargo hold. Escorting him today is Army Sergeant XXXXXX;. Also, on board are his father, mother, wife, and daughter. Your
entire flight crew is asking for all passengers to remain in their seats to allow the family to exit the aircraft first. Thank you.'

We continued the turn to the gate, stopped and started our shutdown procedures. A couple of minutes later I opened the cockpit door. I found the two forward flight attendants crying, something you just do not see. I was told that after we came to a stop, every passenger on the aircraft stayed in their seats, waiting for the family to exit the aircraft.

When the family got up and gathered their things, a passenger slowly started to clap his hands. Moments later, more passengers joined in and soon the entire aircraft was clapping. Words of 'God Bless You', I'm sorry, thank you, be proud, and other kind words were uttered to the family as they made their way down the aisle and out of the airplane. They were escorted down to the ramp to finally be with their loved one.

Many of the passengers disembarking thanked me for the announcement I had
made. They were just words, I told them, I could say them over and over again, but nothing I say will bring back that brave soldier.

I respectfully ask that all of you reflect on this event and the sacrifices that millions of our men and women have made to ensure our freedom and safety in these United States of AMERICA.

MUFON, America's UFO Experts, Discuss Roswell And Possible Cover-Up

by Jim Clash
17 January 2017

The subject of UFOs has always been controversial – still is. To get a look at the subject from the perspective of MUFON, America’s premier investigator of the phenomenon, we sat down with its executive director, Jan Harzan. You may know MUFON from Hangar 1, a popular TV series recently on the History Channel about the organization and its work with unexplained UFO sightings. In part 1 of our chat below, Harzan discusses two big UFO cases, possible cover-ups, Roswell, NM, and his own encounter with a UFO. You and I may or may not agree with Harzan but his arguments are interesting.

Jim Clash: Briefly, what is MUFON?

Jan Harzan: A membership-based 501.c.3 non-profit whose mission is, “the scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of humanity.” We offer a place for the public to report UFO sightings, and then we assign trained MUFON field investigators to contact the witness(es) and investigate the reports and determine exactly what happened. The information is then available to the public. We have over 100,0000 cases on file now, with that number growing rapidly. We are 100% publicly funded through two primary sources, memberships and donations.

JC: Give us two compelling UFO cases.

JH: One of the best-documented cases of an extraterrestrial encounter is Travis Walton from Nov. 5, 1975, near Snowflake, AZ. Travis and six co-workers had just finished clearing brush in the mountains and were heading back to town when they encountered a glowing, silvery disc-shaped craft in the forest. Travis exited the cab of the truck they were in, and approached the craft. In doing so, he was struck by a beam of light knocking him to the ground unconscious. His buddies filled with fear high-tailed it out but returned a while later to find both Travis and the saucer gone. Five days passed when Travis suddenly reappeared to tell the story of where he had been. He reported being aboard a craft and seeing creatures that did not look human. All seven of the crew and Travis took, and passed, lie-detector tests regarding their ordeal.

The second is known as the Rendlesham Forest case involving the U.S. military in Suffolk, England. Around 3 a.m. on Dec. 26, 1980, strange lights were reported by a security patrol near the east gate of RAF Woodbridge apparently descending into nearby Rendlesham Forest. Servicemen initially thought it was a downed aircraft but, upon entering the forest to investigate, they saw a strange glowing object, metallic in appearance, with colored lights. As they approached, it moved through the trees and left three impressions in the ground that were visible the next day. One of the servicemen, Sgt. Jim Penniston, later claimed to have encountered a "craft of unknown origin" and to have made detailed notes of its features, touched its "warm" surface and copied the numerous symbols that were on its body. The object flew away after their brief encounter.

CIA uploads millions of classified documents to its website, including information on UFOs and psychic powers

The 'STAR GATE' remote viewing programme aimed to explore whether humans could be taught to be psychic

Andrew Griffin
Wednesday 18 January 2017

The CIA is putting its secret history online, uploading millions of newly declassified documents.

The documents include previously unseen information about the agency's hunt for UFOs and its work on the "Star Gate" project, which tried to teach humans to become psychic and see through walls.

One document, for instance, describes that project in detail. It shows how the CIA recruited volunteers to go through a programme of training that would let people access information without any of the usual means, and which would be used as a weapon for which there is "no known defense".

The US spy agency will put up 12 million pages into its online "reading room", where people will be able to search through the documents.

The previously classified pages include private briefs given to presidents and the information that is passed between its operatives. They cover everything from the Cold War and Vietnam to relatively modern problems like terrorism.

That means that people can see its history from its formation until the early 90s, for now. None of that is selected, the agency claims, meaning that it shows some of the agency and the US government's most controversial episodes.

The CIA has to declassify records that are 25 years old, unless they are made exempt. That means that each year it releases a whole new set of documents.

But this year that has been accompanied by the first time that the documents have been made available online. Until now, the documents could only be read on four terminals inside the US National Archives, in their original format.

At his first press conference since his election, Trump refused to take a question from a CNN reporter, saying that his network had been propagating ‘fake news,'”

KellyAnne Conway made a complete hash of insisting, against all evidence, that CNN did the deed. And that Trump wasn't aware of the briefing papers. It turned out she was wrong. Comey personally told Trump.

Conway hasn't been on CNN since.

So the Trump people do not want what their master actually says in front of live cameras to be transmitted ?

How long before he stops any live interviews with anyone.

Can’t you see this is for your own good? Now scram. What are you waiting for?

A new initiative called Stop Operation Soros (SOS), a movement dedicated to stopping the evil of Billionaire Globalist, Geroge Soros, has now launched in Macedonia.

The SOS founders called on citizens around the world to “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros.” The movement has been set up to expose the 'subversive activities of all of George Soros's organistaions. Hungary has also taken to steps to clamp down on Soros funded organizations by banning them from the country.

RT.com reports: According to Nikola Srbov, a columnist for pro-government news portal Kurir and co-founder of SOS, Soros-funded NGOs have monopolized civil society in Macedonia and used their position to suppress dissenting views.

“We've witnessed the takeover of the entire civil sector and its abuse and instrumentalization to meet the goals of one political party. That is unacceptable and goes beyond the principles of civic organizing,” Srbov said at the press conference.

“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology,” he stated.

Another co-founder, Cvetin Cilimanov, editor-in-chief of the state-run MIA news agency, accused Soros’s Open Society Foundations of undermining Macedonian sovereignty by working not only with the opposition center-left SDSM party, but also with outside interests. By cooperating with foreign embassies and organizations such as USAID, Cilimanov believes Soros-backed groups have interfered in the political process of Macedonia.

“This is unacceptable and has largely contributed to a feeling in the public that the traditional relations of partnership Macedonia enjoyed with some countries are being undermined,” Cilimanov told journalists.

A third founder of the initiative and editor-in-chief of the Republika news portal, Nenad Mircevski, declared that the group would work towards the “de-Soros-ization” of Macedonia, echoing a speech made by former prime minister and leader of the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party Nikola Gruevski in December. In the speech, Gruevski accused foreign powers and Soros-backed organizations of meddling in Macedonian politics.

The Craziest Regulations in the Obama Era

Regulations on Christmas lights, cow farts, pigs on airplanes

BY: Elizabeth Harrington
January 22, 2017 5:00 am

The Obama administration set a record by issuing 97,110 pages of regulations for nearly 4,000 new federal rules, at an estimated cost of nearly $350 billion.

Rules such as the Obamacare employer mandate and the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations over power plants and rivers, streams, and ponds are well known, and reflect the expansion of the federal bureaucracy. But lesser known rules shed light on the size and scope of the government, as well. Here are the craziest federal regulatory moves in the Obama era:

Removing ‘He’ and ‘She’ From Regs to Avoid Gender Norms

The pronouns “he” and “she” were too heteronormative for the Department of Labor when it introduced a new anti-discrimination regulation last year.

The agency proposed removing the terms “he” and “she” from a regulation in an effort to “avoid the gender binary.” The rule also added “sex stereotyping, transgender status, and gender identity” to the list of types of discriminatory behavior prohibited under a federal job training program.

The rule was finalized in December, and “gender-specific terminology” from the law was removed, including any reference to “he or she,” “him or her,” and “his or her.”

Pigs on Airplanes

The Department of Transportation authorized pigs to fly as “emotional support” animals in 2012.

The rules were intended to eliminate discrimination against disabled persons when they fly, and official guidance OK’d pot-bellied pigs, which can weigh as much as 300 pounds.

“[I]f you determine that the pot-bellied pig is a service animal, you must permit the service animal to accompany the passenger to her seat provided the animal does not obstruct the aisle or present any safety issues and the animal is behaving appropriately in a public setting,” the manual stated.

Not Being Able to Define ‘Menu’ in Less Than 170 Words

One major regulation from Obamacare was adding calorie requirements to menus in restaurant chains across the nation. But defining what constitutes a menu was not easy.

The rules, which were blasted as “impossible to comply” with and carried criminal penalties for not labeling a food correctly, are estimated to cost the industry $1.7 billion.

The regulation was so specific that it announced that seasonal pumpkin spice muffins would have to be labeled, but not crushed dried peppers, which are “considered a condiment that is exempt.”

The definition for menu reached 171 words, and the final regulation applied to things that are not menus, such as advertisements and coupons.

Mandating Businesses Allow Miniature Horses as Guide Animals

The 2010 guidelines for the Americans with Disabilities Act were not finalized until two years later, and the government included a provision that store owners should let miniature horses in if they are used as guide animals.

The guidelines also regulated everything from limiting the height of slopes on miniature golf courses, and other various requirements at shooting ranges and saunas to accommodate the disabled.

Public accommodation was extended to mini-horses “if the miniature horse has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of the individual with a disability.”

However, “Ponies and full-size horses are not covered.”

Feds Weighing Kids in Daycare Because of Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Rules

Another unintended consequence of the healthy school lunch law pushed by First Lady Michelle Obama was that thousands of kids were weighed in daycare.

Section 223 of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act mandated a study of food in daycare, which included measuring the height and weight of 3,000 kids.

“Children will be asked to cooperate with study staff who will weigh and measure them for the Standing Height and Weight Form,” according to a notice of a regulation that codified the section of the law.

Regulating Christmas Lights

Federal regulators extended their hand to Christmas lights at the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

A regulation posted in 2015 deemed certain Christmas decorations a “substantial product hazard” if they did not meet the government’s standards for wire size, overcurrent protection, and strain relief.

The final rule applied to “stars, wreathes, candles without shades, light sculptures, blow-molded (plastic) figures, and animated figures,” but not “solar-powered products.”

Navy Inspected Bathrooms for ‘Degrading’ Images of Women

The military was not exempt from bizarre rules. Under orders from then-Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, the Navy searched sailors’ workspaces to make sure they did not have any pin up calendars that could be “degrading or offensive” to women.

In an attempt to curb sexual assault, Secretary of the Navy Ray Maybus sent a memo in June 2013 that more than once a year commanding officers would inspect workplaces to “ensure they are free from materials that create a degrading, hostile, or offensive work environment.”

Even bathrooms were inspected, and any “unprofessional” calendars or posters were taken away as “contraband.”

Regulating Cow Farts

In 2014, the Obama administration received headlines for plans to regulate cow flatulence. The goal of cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent would have to target cow flatulence, since the EPA considers beef and dairy cattle as the largest domestic animal emitters of methane “by far.”

California followed suit last year. Comparing himself to Noah from the Bible, Gov. Jerry Brown announced new legislation that regulates cow farts, and dramatically reduces methane emissions by 2030.

The operators couldn't tell the difference between an Iranian fighter/bomber and a civilian aircraft.

'But', you may say, 'Today we have automated systems that can tell the difference and thus remove the human.'

It is even less time since an automated car drove straight into the side of a truck and killed it's driver. Didn't see the truck.

I think the concern is Kims lousy tech..because even under the best circumstances..the unexpected pops up

https://www.yahoo.com/news/british-missile-test-malfunctioned-last-off-u-coast-000018600.html
LONDON (Reuters) - A test firing of an unarmed British nuclear Trident missile from a submarine malfunctioned last June, the Sunday Times reported, prompting questions about why Prime Minister Theresa May did not tell parliament ahead of a vote on renewing the submarines.

The paper quoted an unnamed senior naval source as saying the missile may have veered off in the wrong direction towards the American mainland when it was fired off the coast of Florida.

Edit..Not may have..it did

It was the only test firing of a British nuclear missile in four years and came shortly before May became prime minister in the wake of Britain's vote last June to leave the European Union, the paper said.

It said May had omitted any mention of the failed test when she persuaded parliament to spend 40 billion pounds ($49.5 billion) on new Trident submarines in her first major speech to parliament as prime minister last July.

Wow..what if it had been armed..and it had detonated ..would they..any of them..from Kim to Jim.. tell us the truth?
I am sure China has contingency plans..

Trying to find credible reports online compared to a score of years ago is abomnible, Trying to trace old reports on such topics that just sprung back into mind, I have no page to give to corroborate with my memories at The Book of THoTH. At one point we had a member who claimed to be a nephew or son of a bildeberger. In its inception(The Bildeberger Group) they decided that the only day of the year they would print UFO stories, would be New Years Day. I earlier was brushing up on this old fave. First website I went to seemed very interesting . It was about a meeting of the group in Davos 2016. It also had a picture or video with a couple of UFO attending the scene, or was it the meeting rolleyes

ZETAR,

I should have mentioned that I have no objection to a response being posted out of the originating thread, It just causes confusion.

Right on the front page is a list of all the threads. All the boxes are ticked by default, and it is down to the viewer to untick any threads they don't have an interest in.

So it is possible for someone to respond in a thread the initiator has locked out. Thus he/she will miss the response. And the responder may get the wrong impression that the original poster is ignoring him/her.

I admit I don't bother unticking the (many) threads I don't follow; it's too much trouble. I think (not sure) , that they all appear ticked the next time you log on.

My procedure is to view the last fifty posts every time I log on. Seems to catch all the stuff I am following.

The CIA has published online nearly 13 million pages of declassified records, including papers on the US role in overthrowing foreign governments, but some of the most mind blowing information is in reference to the secret ‘Star Gate’ telepathy project.

http://wakingtimesmedia.com/new-cia-docs-reveal-black-budget-project-star-gate-study-supernatural-abilities/

The details of CIA’s “Project Star Gate” are riveting, and expose uncharted waters to be researched as far as there is virtually no mainstream science or pop culture awareness of the phenomena exposed in the project – and is often ridiculed as the stuff of science fiction.

User Image

Project Star Gate, was the code name for a CIA project that attempted to harness what until now has been thought of as “supernatural” or psychic abilities for military and intelligence use – noting in some of the documents that the method was “passive,” “inexpensive,” and that there was “no known defense.”

The papers show how the CIA was attempting to harness these abilities in individuals to spy on people and alter important objects, amongst other abilities.

One of the processes described, called “Psychoenergetics,” described a “mental process” where a person can “view,” “communicate,” or alter objects that are located in different space or time away from the subject. It also describes things such as remote viewing, where people can see objects that are located in another place, as well as telekenisis, which is the ability for someone to move objects they are not physically in contact with.

SHALOM...Z


EDIT TO ADD:

"The fact that these numerous telepathic abilities have been so intimately studied by our own government, in secret, while the public has been allowed to believe these types of abilities are akin to the realm of fantasy raises a very interesting question; If these powers exist, as evidenced by the research, then why has their existence been withheld from the general public?"

LA Times

You may not believe in Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster — but this museum may persuade you otherwise.

by Susan Farlow
January 23, 2017, 7:00 AM
Reporting from PORTLAND, Maine

It all started with a movie supposedly shot in California — and culminated in a museum a continent away.

“Supposedly” because, well, when you’re dealing with mythical — or not — creatures, you just never know for sure. Or do you?

A different film — this one clearly fiction — spurred a vocation for Loren Coleman. When he was a boy in 1960 in Decatur, Ill., he watched a movie titled "Half Human" about an abominable snowman.

The film has affected his life ever since.

At 69, Coleman is one of the world's leading authorities on cryptozoology, the study of hidden ("crypto") or rumored-to-exist animals, such as yeti (the Abominable Snowman), Sasquatch and the Loch Ness Monster.

In 2003 he set up what is thought to be the world’s only International Cryptozoology Museum. The 10,000-item nonprofit, which focuses on these legendary creatures, called cryptids, moved in the summer into new digs in a restored industrial landmark in Portland, about 115 miles north of Boston.

Coleman, who has written or contributed to more than 100 books on cryptozoology, natural history mysteries and suicide prevention, has collected a trove of specimens and artifacts, such as “foot casts” and native art.

As I began prowling the two-story museum, I soon came face to face with an 8-foot-tall, supposedly life-size rendering of Bigfoot. Selfie, anyone?

For decades, the hairy, long-armed Bigfoot (a.k.a. Sasquatch) has been a marquee cryptid because, Coleman told me, it’s the "cryptid closest to" humans. It is thought to live in the northwestern United States and Canada.

"California is a rich place for cryptids," Coleman said. There is, he said, a “historical depth of California sightings.”

He cited examples such as sea serpents, the Abominable Sandman (a desert Bigfoot) and the giant salamander, “A long list of other cryptids have been encountered in the state… They have been seen there,” he said.

Moreover, "the term 'Bigfoot' originated in Northern California," he said.

There has been at least one claim of a Bigfoot sighting in Humboldt County, Calif., about 40 miles south of the Oregon border. It is perhaps the most famous imagery of the creature.

In 1967 Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin said they encountered an immense ape-like creature walking along Bluff Creek.

Their encounter allegedly produced nearly a minute of footage that included the figure glancing toward the camera before vanishing into the woods.

The footage is part of the museum’s Bigfoot exhibit.

Nearby, another exhibit shows footcasts said to be taken of the tracks of the star of the 1967 movie.

"I am quite convinced they point to the existence of an unrecognized relict hominoid in North America," scientist Jeff Meldrum said in an email. (A relict hominoid is a surviving species of an otherwise extinct group.)

How these fish got stuck in a wall of ice

We know this much: They're fish. They're dead. And they're frozen into a vertical sheet of ice. How did they get there? Kelly Preheim, the South Dakota birder who snapped the picture, explains the fishcicle mystery to As It Happens guest host Helen Mann.

Helen Mann: Ms Preheim, maybe you could create an image for our listeners of this photo that you took on Lake Andes?

Kelly Preheim: I was out birding, actually. And I looked up and I saw this — well, it looked like a wall of ice with fish trapped in it. And the fish, of course, were frozen and dead, but the way their stance is, it looks like they're leaping out of the water.

HM: And how many fish are we talking about?

KP: Well in this picture it looks like there's about a dozen to 15. But the surface of the lake in some parts had thousands of dead fish.

HM: And this wall of ice and fish, how high is it?

KP: It was about 4 feet tall. And that was the nicest sheet of it, but all the way down there were pieces of it jutting out of the water. I wish I would have taken more pictures, but I didn't.

Scientists invent UV 'Spider-Man' adhesive

Posted on Tuesday, 24 January, 2017

User Image
Could Spider-Man soon become a reality ? Image Credit: CC BY 2.0 Roger Murmann

German scientists have developed a new type of super-strong adhesive that reacts to ultraviolet light.

Developed by a team led by Emre Kizilkan from Kiel University, the adhesive device features a surface texture inspired by the feet of geckos combined with a porous, light-sensitive film.

The film is made from azobenzene - a molecule that curls when exposed to ultraviolet light.

The surface, which is comprised of tiny mushroom-shaped pillars, sticks to other surfaces via van der Waals forces so by turning a UV light on or off it is possible to enable or disable the adhesive.

The scientists are hoping to combine this technology with robotics to one day make it possible to climb up the side of buildings and other surfaces like the comic-book superhero Spider-Man.

The adhesive is in fact so sticky that a 20cm square of it is enough to support an adult male.

While it's still early days yet (encountering a dirty wall for instance can clog it up), the team is hoping to begin developing spider-like wall-climbing bots in the near future.

"The global aim is to make an adhesive to climb surfaces for humans," said Kizilkan.

"Repunzel" Syndrome?! A 10 inch hairball?! Now I've heard EVERYTHING! shocked




Young Woman died from a hairball that extended 25cm from her stomach into her intestines

Karen Carroll was recommended for surgery in 2009 but it never took place; she died five years later.

by Louise Roseingrave
24th January 2017

The hairball, known medically as trichobezoar, is associated with a rare condition called Repunzel Syndrome which results from the ingestion of hair.

The young woman, who worked as a supervisor at Debenham’s, did not proceed with the planned surgery to remove the large mass of hair from her intestines but continued to live a full life over the next five years, Dublin Coroner’s Court heard.

Towards the end of 2014 she became unwell and experienced a dramatic loss of weight. She presented at the Mater Hospital on February 13 2015 complaining of abdominal pain.

She was described as thin, malnourished and disorientated and had lost between three and four stone over a two month period, the court heard.

Miss Carroll was admitted to the Mater Private Hospital on that date suffering from dehydration.

Tests showed a large hairball extending from her stomach into the second section of her intestine with a diameter ranging between 6.2 and 10cm. The first section alone, the duodenum, measures between 25am and 38cm.

The young woman was treated with nutritional supplements and the painkiller Tramadol from the time of admission. On the morning of February 17th, she complained of hiccups and nausea, with abdominal pain and tenderness.

She collapsed on the ward later that day.

Bon Ishikawa discovers the strength of community in documentary on Nepal earthquake

by Rob Gilhooly

Special To The Japan Times
Jan 26, 2017

During one scene in Bon Ishikawa’s upcoming documentary “Sekai de Ichiban Utsukushii Mura” (“The Most Beautiful Village in the World”), the photographer-turned-filmmaker uses a drone to capture one of Asia’s oldest traditions: the collecting of honey from caves in the steep cliffs of the Himalayas.

The local Gurung people have been practicing the custom for hundreds of years, but they were forced to discontinue it on April 25, 2015, after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake devastated Nepal. Including the honey harvest in his film, Ishikawa offers an encouraging position: Tradition survives, and it’s all thanks to community.

Early on in the documentary, however, things don’t look so bright. One especially moving scene focuses on Yam Kumari, a nurse from the mountain village of Laprak whose husband was one of the nearly 9,000 who died in the quake. Teary eyed, she confesses that the circumstances have caused her to lose her faith.

“I asked God, ‘How could you do this to me? Why did you take him from me when I have devoted my life to helping others?’ ” she tells the filmmaker. “I could not believe there was a God anymore.”

It was a sentiment felt by many of the villagers, according to Ishikawa who spent more than 18 months filming the area.

“She renounces her God, but with time, and the support and healing of the villagers, she is able to recover,” Ishikawa says. “I wanted to show the wonder of humanity in the face of such adversity, how true community and kinship heals. They share their grief, they cry together, laugh together and together they battle against adversity.”

Ishikawa, 56, was born in Oita Prefecture but moved to Tokyo at age 16 to fulfill a childhood dream of being a professional shōgi (Japanese chess) player. However, he ended up as a staff photographer for Agence France-Press before becoming a freelance photojournalist in 1990. He has documented a wide variety of events and subjects, from traditional fishing practices in Indonesia to the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011. When he boarded a flight for Kathmandu in the aftermath of the Nepal quake he brought experience as well as a keen eye.

He took as many emergency supplies as he could carry, knowing that there would be greater need for them the farther he ventured off the beaten path. Ishikawa headed to the quake’s epicenter northwest of Kathmandu, and the crumbled mountain roads forced him to trek for a day before he could reach Laprak, which is located in Gorkha District at an elevation of 2,500 meters.

“It was clear following the Tohoku disasters that emergency relief supplies can arrive relatively quickly following a major disaster, but anywhere off the major arteries can spend days without the basics,” says Ishikawa, adding that the 2011 quake — which resulted in around 16,000 fatalities with more than 2,500 people still missing — was never far from his mind. “Despite vivid memories of Tohoku, the sight that greeted me when I arrived in Laprak beggared belief.”

He wandered among the ruins of the devastated community, many of its 600 dwellings reduced to piles of stones, dried mud and bamboo shards.

A 90-minute trek away from the devastation of Laprak, the photographer found himself in a makeshift refugee camp for the village’s residents farther up the mountain. They were living in primitive tents, with nothing more than plastic sheets to shelter them from the elements.

Even before the disaster, the people of Laprak “had nothing — no TVs, not even the smallest luxuries that we in Japan take for granted,” Ishikawa says. Anything they did have was gone, “except for their sense of community and indomitable spirit.”

In the camp, Ishikawa met Ash Bahadur, a spunky and lovable boy from an impoverished herding family who lost everything in the disaster. His younger sister was injured in the quake and had been sent to the town of Pokhara, three hours away. Ishikawa saw the community rally around Ash and his family and it affected him deeply.

“It made me quite nostalgic, reminding me of something we once had in Japan when I was a child,” he says.

Ishikawa told Ash he would tell others of what happened to Laprak and promised to return. He kept his promise and on his second trip he brought along around 3 tons of supplies, and hired local residents to help deliver them to those in need.

“I saw this as an opportunity to not only provide much-needed aid, but also provide work for those who had been most impacted by the quake,” Ishikawa says.

The villagers were paid with funds accrued by a campaign on Ishikawa’s Facebook page that were also used to purchase the relief supplies. He raised around ¥5 million through crowdfunding, which he then matched through his own savings. He later uploaded photos and videos of residents offering their thanks to those who had donated.

“The real-time immediacy of that response had a huge impact,” he says. “It made those who had contributed realize the value of what they had done and made them want to do more.”

Ishikawa wanted to do more, too.

Dissatisfied with the “one shot” impact of the news images he had supplied to magazines and newspapers, he searched for another avenue that would ensure continued support for the villages he encountered. That led to the decision to make a film.

“Filmmaking was actually the reason I started photography in the first place,” Ishikawa says. “I had been wanting to make a film since leaving AFP over 35 years ago, but one based on (actual) experience, not the ‘virtual’ experience that goes into many commercial movies. Photography seemed the best way into that.”

The film came together over seven subsequent trips to Nepal. Ishikawa documents the aftermath of the earthquake, but does so in a way that focuses on the triumph of community instead of anything resembling so-called disaster tourism. He has entered his film into several international film festivals, including the Berlinale and Toronto’s Hot Docs.

Along with the honey collecting, he was also able to shoot a harvest festival in which girls perform a trance-like dance known as the Ghatu, an ancient part of a Tibetan religion called Bon that is practiced by the Gurung. The return of the festival marked a significant milestone for the local villagers in their quest for recovery, according to Ishikawa.

“It was the first time since the quake that people had smiles on their faces, the first time that they actively sought peace with their God,” he says, adding that many families made traditional offerings of goats while young Ash’s family was only able to offer cucumbers as an oblation.

Nurse Kumari, who had previously suffered a crisis of faith, also attended the religious ceremony. She has spent each day going back and forth between the camp and Laprak, where she tends to the elderly residents who were unable to relocate or chose to stay there.

“It has been almost six years since the disasters in Tohoku and they still say that the biggest problem among refugees is loneliness,” Ishikawa says. “But in Laprak, it’s almost impossible to experience loneliness. Most people faced real hardships, but they have been able to overcome them through compassion, unity and faith. It was that kind of image that I wanted to convey through the film. I believe we can learn from it.”

NYC toddlers exposed to potentially harmful flame retardants


100 percent of toddlers studied had flame retardants on their hands; on average, they were exposed at levels above those found on their mothers

Beginning in the 1970s, manufacturers added PBDEs, persistent brominated flame-retardants, to couches, textiles, electronics and other consumer products to comply with flammability standards. 100% of toddlers in this study had these potentially dangerous flame-retardants on their hands.

Researchers at the Columbia Center for Children's Environmental Health (CCCEH) within the Mailman School of Public Health report evidence of potentially harmful flame retardants on the hands and in the homes of 100 percent of a sample of New York City mothers and toddlers. The study also found that on average toddlers in New York City had higher levels of common flame-retardants on their hands compared to their mothers.

The Center's previous research has linked early life exposure to a common class of flame-retardants called PBDEs with attention problems and lower scores on tests of mental and physical development in children. Results appear in the journal Emerging Contaminants.

Beginning in the 1970s, manufacturers added PBDEs, persistent brominated flame-retardants, to couches, textiles, electronics and other consumer products to comply with flammability standards. They began phasing out PBDEs in 2004 and started using newer alternative flame-retardants, including TBB and TBPH, which are components of the commercial mixture Firemaster 550®. TBB and TBPH are brominated flame retardants for which little is known about their health effects in humans, though they have been linked to reduced fertility and endocrine disruption in animal models.

Researchers visited the homes of 25 mother-child pairs enrolled in the CCCEH Sibling-Hermanos birth cohort, which began in 2008. When children were 3 years old, dust was collected from their homes and hand wipes were collected from the mother and child; these samples were analyzed for flame retardant compounds.

Signaling the widespread persistence of the phased out PBDEs and the prevalence of their potentially toxic substitutes, investigators found that both PBDEs and the newer brominated flame-retardants, TBB and TBPH, were detected in 100 percent of house dust samples. On average, levels of TBB and TBPH in house dust were higher than PBDEs. Likewise, PBDEs and TBB were found in 100 percent of hand wipe samples and TBB was found in 95 percent of samples. Paired mother and child hand wipe concentrations were correlated; however, children typically had higher levels of all flame-retardants on their hands than their mothers.
Results are consistent with other studies, which demonstrate that toddlers tend to have higher exposure to flame retardants when compared with adults, likely because of the amount of time they spend on the floor.

"The extent to which young children are exposed to these chemicals is cause for concern given the known neurodevelopmental risk of PBDEs and the potential toxicity of their substitutes," says Whitney Cowell, the study's first author and a PhD candidate in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia's Mailman School.
The study is the first comparison of PBDEs, TBB, and TBPH in house dust and handwipe samples from maternal-child pairs. The investigators detected flame retardant chemicals on the hands and in the homes of all participants. The detected compounds included both historic flame-retardants that have been phased out of use due to health effects and their newer replacements.

"Toddlers are being exposed to replacement flame retardant chemicals that we know little about," says senior author Julie Herbstman, associate professor of Environmental Health Sciences. "Future research needs not only to focus on understanding the toxicity of these compounds, but also on how exposure occurs in the home and what behaviors and policies can be used to reduce personal exposure."

‘Stop Soros’ Movement Sweeps Europe

http://www.infowars.com/stop-soros-movement-sweeps-europe/

A new initiative called Stop Operation Soros (SOS) is launching in the Balkan nation of Macedonia to counter the influence of globalist billionaire George Soros.

User Image

The founders of the group called on all “free-minded citizens” to join them in the “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros,” reports a Slovenian newspaper.

“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia,” he said in a
