Complex Brains and a Rich Social Structure in Whales and Dolphins Parallel that of Humans

A new study of 90 different species of whales and dolphins has found a striking similarity in the evolution of the brains of cetaceans and primates, including humans. The study looked at the social complexity of each species, and used that factor to determine if brain size could be used to predict the richness of the culture of each type of marine mammal.

Cómo procesar información cinco veces más rápido que un transistor

Investigadores de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid han propuesto una forma alternativa de utilizar las llamadas ondas de espín para diseñar nuevos dispositivos espintrónicos. Estos cumplirían las mismas funciones que los actuales dispositivos electrónicos, pero con ahorros de energía y con una durabilidad y rendimiento mucho mayores, así como con frecuencias de operación mucho más elevadas.

Algunos cristales cambian su dureza con solo girarlos

Parece sorprendente, pero ciertos materiales se vuelven más duros cuando los giras. Combinando propiedades de algunos cristales, investigadores del Instituto Catalán de Nanociencia y Nanotecnología (ICN2) han descubierto que los materiales polares pueden hacerse más o menos resistentes a las hendiduras cuando se ponen al revés o se les aplica un voltaje que invierte su polarización, todo un avance en el campo de los materiales mecánicos inteligentes.

Celulosa y puntos cuánticos de grafeno para detectar enzimas

Usando nanocelulosa y puntos de grafeno, químicos de la Universidad de Córdoba han fabricado un gel fluorescente para medir, de forma sencilla y ecológica, concentraciones de lacasas. Estas enzimas con cobre se utilizan en productos cotidianos, como los champús, y sus niveles se podrían regular en los próximos años.

SHARED Death Experience??

Wednesday October 18, 2017
Last week we heard all about the near death experience. This week we will hear about the shared death experience. But first, our returning guest, Christopher, takes us through his life as an intermediary in both ufological and near death experiences, which should no longer be considered two different subjects, but factions of the same study.

A Massive Hole has Opened Up in the Antarctic Ice

A massive hole the size of Lake Superior has opened in the ice that covers Antarctica's Weddell Sea, a phenomenon that hasn't been seen since the mid-1970s. This hole, called a polynya, opens up 80,000 square kilometers (31,000 square miles) of ocean in the middle of the Weddell Sea's ice pack, hundreds of miles from shore. "This is hundreds of kilometers from the ice edge. If we didn't have a satellite, we wouldn't know it was there," explains professor Kent Moore, an atmospheric physicist at the University of Toronto.

October 20, 2017
Dr. Eben Alexander and Karen Newell return to Dreamland with their amazing breakthrough book Living in a Mindful Universe. Too many of us have come to believe that you need to have an NDE, use ayahuasca or some other substance or engage in long years of meditation to reach the higher state of consciousness that we all aspire to.

Does the Great Sphinx have an Undiscovered Twin Sister?

Numerous archaeologists are raising the question of where the missing counterpart to the Great Sphinx at Giza is located: the solitary nature of the ancient half man, half lion sculpture is an anomaly in ancient Egypt, as virtually every other depiction of a sphinx comes in pairs. These pairs are depicted as male and female, embodying the various representations of duality. If this theory is true, then where is the Great Sphinx's equally Great Sister -- and what happened to erase such a massive monument from history?

Argentina: A Triangular UFO in Mendoza (1976)



A lively UFO symposium known as the Café Ufológico de Mendoza is held on a regular basis in this Argentinean city's Café Five Stars, representing a source of "real time" information exchanges among students and witnesses of the phenomenon. The most recent such meeting was held on September 27, 2017 and was joined by Raúl Díaz, Ariel Godoy, Daniel Hendryk, Martín Fuentes, Alejandro Asalgado, Laura Lencinas, Laura González, Mariana Muñoz, Cristina Rodríguez, Violeta Moreno, Fernando Rodríguez, Susana Occelli, Héctor Sawiak, Diego Escolar, Alejandro Rosario, Miguel Marinelli and our friend and colleague Luis Emilio Annino.

Among the cases presented for discussion was a compelling sighting of a triangular UFO in the mid-1970s.

Mr. Annino writes: "First, we welcomed Cristina Rodríguez, who was accompanied by Violeta Moreno (both of them residing in the mountainous region of Potrerillos) and their brother Fernando Rodriguez. Having several surprising experiences to share, Cristina recalled a particular one from the spring of 1976, when she lived in a farm covering some six hectares in a rural region corresponding to Colonia Segovia in the Department of Guaymallen. Around 21:00 hours, while escorting her aunt, who was feeding a dog in another house, located 50 meters from the main residence, she beheld an incredible sight: A triangular flying object the size of a car and bearing three lights (red, white and blue) that came from behind the property, flying at the height of the surrounding poplar trees, which also lined a deep ditch. The flying object appeared to be flying over said ditch, almost vertically, tilting on its axis slightly as it progressed. The object had a peculiar feature: a sort of spotlight that swept along its path, as if looking for something. The aunt, frightened by this, fled the area while Cristina kept looking at the strange triangular object that suddenly turned itself off and vanished from her sight as it began entering a neighboring property near a high voltage tower. This was not her only experience, and Cristina will certainly say more about her unusual encounters in future meetings."



Our thanks as always to Guillermo Giménez for the information.

España en el gran descubrimiento del choque de estrellas

Este lunes se ha hecho público un anuncio científico espectacular: la primera detección de ondas gravitacionales procedentes de la colisión de dos estrellas de neutrones y de la radiación asociada al evento. Investigadores españoles forman parte de la colaboración científica LIGO-Virgo que ha liderado el descubrimiento, así como de algunos de los cerca de 70 observatorios espaciales y terrestres que han participado en este hito.

Could Ophelia Herald an Increase in the number of European Hurricanes?

If the news of a major hurricane tearing for the coast of Ireland seems odd, as was the case for Hurricane Ophelia, that's because the phenomenon of hurricanes surviving as organized storms that far east in the Atlantic Ocean is extremely rare. As it is, Ophelia now holds the record for the easternmost major hurricane in the Atlantic, and if it had maintained its strength it would have been only the third known tropical storm to make landfall in Europe, following 2005's Hurricane Vince, making landfall in Spain, and Hurricane Debbie, brushing the west coast of Ireland in 1961.

War Danger

Small miscalculations create great wars, and the law of unintended consequences governs the way the unfold and how they end. In June of 1914 when the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo, nobody imagined that the greatest war know to that time would be triggered as a result, and that it would destroy an orderly world and lead to another eighty years of upheaval. Similarly, when Dean Acheson made a policy speech in 1950 that failed to mention that Korea was considered an ally by the US, nobody realized that North Korea would then start the horrific Korean war that has led to the situation we face today, with the possibility that a hot war could break out at any time.

We CAN Save Our Planet by Whitley Strieber

President Trump doesn't believe in climate change and is doing everything he can to destroy environmental protection in America, wreck the solar power industry and bring coal back. So why is there any reason to be optimistic about saving our planet from global warming?
