Perfect Circle in the Night Sky a Puzzle


We initially dismissed this one as a lens effect, but that's not what it is. There appears to have been a circular object in the night sky over Galveston in late June. It 'silently crossed the night sky' according to witnesses. Do we have a drone that could do this? Certainly nothing even close to being declassified. This is a genuine unknown. (But look closely, it's hard to see in this video.)

Manual técnico de dirigibles (1917)

Europa se halla estancada en un infierno que parece eterno. Un frente al este y otro al oeste destrozan la vida de jóvenes soldados. Los bombardeos arrasan ciudades, los novísimos tanques y los aeroplanos siembran el terror. El Plan Schlieffen, con el que Alemania pretendía una rápida victoria, no cumple con lo esperado después de la milagrosa victoria francobritánica en la Primera Batalla del Marne en septiembre de 1914. Y, entonces, el cielo se llenó de fantasmas en forma de dirigibles volando sobre una inextricable maraña de trincheras.

El cocodrilo de Bristol, Reino Unido

A la espera de dilucidar el enigma del monstruo del Loch Ness, Gran Bretaña ha encontrado a otra criatura misteriosa, un “cocodrilo”, que varios testigos aseguran haber visto en el río Avon, cerca de Bristol, en el oeste de Inglaterra.


Un conductor de autobús fue el primero en dar la alerta en febrero cuando vio en el río lo que pensaba ser un cocodrilo. La policía de Avon y de Somerset lanzó entonces unas búsquedas sin éxito.


crocodile-uk_2955352b


La primera foto del reptil


Otros dos testigos aseguraron luego haber visto al cocodrilo pero no se les dio mucha credibilidad. Hasta que este viernes la prensa publicó una fotografía tomada durante la semana por Tamara Blanco cuando había salido a correr.


“Demasiado asustada” para acercarse más, solo pudo tomar una fotografía muy borrosa. Entre las aguas oscuras se distingue algo. ¿Una bolsa de plástico? ¿Una rama de árbol? ¿Un cocodrilo? Resulta imposible decirlo, dada la mala calidad de la imagen.


La autora de la foto solo sabe que “se movía”.


La imagen ha disparado las alertas en los alrededores de Bristol, donde algunos vecinos han colocado un panel con un cocodrilo con la boca abierta para advertir del peligro.


La prensa, por su parte, se interroga sobre la posibilidades de supervivencia de un reptil en las frías aguas del Avon -un tema sobre el que las opiniones de los expertos no coinciden- y la posible procedencia del cocodrilo.


Según el Daily Telegraph, no se ha señalado ninguna desaparición en los zoos. Queda la hipótesis de que un particular haya abandonado al reptil cuando empezaba a crecer demasiado.

Weekender: Can Childhood Stress Shape Our Lives and Affect Our Destiny?




Stress, anxiety, depression - these are all familiar terms in our modern lifestyle. But why are these conditions so prevalent in society? Where are the seeds of discontent sown?



A new study, published in the journal Biological Psychiatry, reports that stressful situations experienced in childhood can have a lasting and very negative effect on our lives.



Some stress can be a positive thing; without it we would have no need to adapt or develop survival skills. But chronic stress, like poverty, emotional or physical neglect and abuse, can be toxic to our body and minds, becoming locked away inside us like a slow-acting poison.

¿La isla de las maravillas?

Esto que hoy visita TecOb se aparta un poco de lo habitual. Necesito la ayuda de los lectores porque no he logrado encontrar la fuente primaria. En el número 133 de la revista Algo, publicada en Barcelona en 14 de noviembre de 1931, aparece un curioso artículo titulado “La isla de las maravillas técnicas”. Se trata de una narración muy curiosa, a todas luces ficticia, que muestra cierta isla del Báltico en la que se habrían refugiado una serie de científicos geniales capaces de crear máquinas imposibles (pincha en la imagen para ampliar)


isla_maravillas_ficcion1931


Aunque se pretende presentar como algo verídico, está claro que está en la línea de las narraciones de fantasía científica de la época. Además, en la revista Algo casi todo el material, tanto gráfico como los textos, procedía de traducciones y recortes de prensa europea y americana. La historia tiene su atractivo y me gustaría conocer la fuente original, posiblemente algún artículo de revista de ciencia ficción norteamericana o similar, pero no dado con ello. ¿Alguien tiene idea de dónde pudo surgir este artículo?

Science Suggests That The Universe "Shouldn't Really Exist"




The unfathomable mystery of how this Universe was brought forth into being has preoccupied the mind of Man since he became cognisant of his own existence. Latterly, Science has been able to provide the likely cosmic nuts and bolts of the process, with the most widely accepted concept being known as the "Big Bang" theory.

Though the name implies a huge detonation, the "Big Bang" was more of an expansion than an explosion, an expansion that is still continuing today, but recent research suggests that if this type of event had indeed created the Universe then, theoretically, it should not exist at all.

Venezuela: UFOs Shed No Light on Mysteries

UFOs Shed No Light on Mysteries

By Ragdeli Peraza Mobilio



***Research on unidentified flying objects is known to have commenced in the middle of World War 2. There is currently no irrefutable evidence for them ***

*** A direct relationship is incorrectly made between UFOs and aliens ***




She doesn't remember the date exactly, but believes the strange event to have occurred in late November 2009. Marjorie Buloz was in her apartment that evening around approximately 8:00 p.m., and the windows of one of her rooms in the Pascal District of Puerto La Cruz faces the El Maguey Lagoon. There had been a blackout and she saw something flying near the lagoon.



"What I saw was a large oval object suspended over the lagoon. It projected a very bright white light (...) the UFO began moving up and down, spinning on its own axis and executing many movements before remaining static. It then took off at an impressive speed, losing itself in the sky." Buloz, a 25-year-old journalist, saw what could be catalogued as an unidentified flying object, source of the acronym UFO. Its origin, however, may or may not be extraterrestrial, according to Buloz. "It could be human technology with or without extraterrestrial assistance. Who knows?"



Her sighting does not go unnoticed by others who tell similar stories while remaining anonymous.



According to research by volunteer members of the UFO Venezuela group, members of a family claimed having witnessed a strange event in October 2008 in the Puerto Nuevo District of Puerto La Cruz. Around 20 white lights appeared aligned in the sky, moving slowly, getting closer and separating, traveling in different directions.



Witnesses to the phenomenon say that the "craft" made turns but vanished quickly in a matter of seconds. According to the report, no one else in that community managed to see the nocturnal "spectacle" in the sky, or have otherwise not wanted to discuss it. Other isolated cases have occurred in the state of Anzoátegui with such common elements as brilliant lights, generally white in color, the movement of the flying objects and their swift, immediate disappearance.



Between the years 2008 and 2012, witnesses report having seen strange white lights or silvery objects flying over Cerro Venezuela, Lechería and also over the mountain located in the vicinity of the Universidad de Oriente's Anzoátegui Campus.



A direct relationship is incorrectly made between UFOs and aliens. They are, in fact, flying objects whose origin remains unknown. Some theories hold that the infamous flying saucers are extraterrestrial in origin, while other investigations state that many sighting reports are in fact military aircraft being tested in the sky.



UFO research has become widespread since the middle of World War II, mainly based on reports by pilots claiming to see strange flying entities that were not aircraft. Since then, a number of adepts of the extraterrestrial hypothesis of UFOs have arisen, researching strange events on their own without finding any irrefutable evidence as of yet.



In February of this year, a group of astronomers held a series of lectures at the David Dunlop Observatory in Ontario, Canada to discuss the UFO phenomenon from a scientific perspective. Astronomers Ian Shelton and Tuba Koktay explained that unidentified flying objects do exist, but that there are many unanswered questions regarding extraterrestrial life. Koktay is an astronomer and researcher and Shelton teaches astronomy at the University of Toronto. Both have worked for the observatory. "We are learning something new every day. Fifteen years ago we weren't sure about the existence of planets outside our solar system. Now we've found over 1000." El Tiempo contacted the Centro de Investigaciones Astronomicas (CIDA) in the state of Merida to obtain a scientific opinion. However, interviews were refused since "they lacked personnel specialized in the subject."

Un objeto extraño en un lago de la mayor luna de Saturno mantiene en vilo a los científicos

"El año pasado la sonda Cassini de la NASA fotografió la mayor luna de Saturno cuando pasó a su lado, captando una imagen sin precedentes, informa 'The Guardian'.

Cuando los científicos estudiaban minuciosamente las imágenes de Ligeia, un mar de 150 metros de profundidad que se extiende cientos de kilómetros en el hemisferio norte de Titán, vieron una mancha blanca extraña, a más de 6 km de la costa sureña montañosa. Sin embargo, en las anteriores imágenes, captadas en 2007 y 2009, la mancha no aparecía.

Según las conjeturas de los investigadores, podría ser un iceberg que se liberó de la costa, un efecto causado por la afloración de burbujas o de olas sobre la superficie del lago normalmente plácido.

Los astrónomos han dado a la mancha el apodo de 'la isla misteriosa' hasta que tengan una mejor idea de lo que están viendo. "Por el momento no podemos estar seguros de lo que es, porque sólo tenemos una sola imagen que muestra el objeto, pero no es algo que se suela ver en Titán", dice Jason Hofgartner, astrónomo de la Universidad de Cornell en Nueva York (...)"

¿Por qué el gobierno australiano no permite cazar ovnis con láseres?

Likely Authentic UFO Video from LA


This video, contributed by an Unknowncountry reader, appears to be an authentic daylight UFO capture. The object carries out a maneuver that is impossible for a plane and unlikely for a bird. It is too far away to be an insect, and it almost certainly isn't a drone, because of its shape. It appears to be avoiding something, perhaps even reacting to the fact that it is on camera.



This video was taken a year ago, but the videographer recently got extensive nighttime video in the same general area. Unfortunately, because it is nighttime video and there isn't enough detail, we can't determine whether or not it's a quadcopter.

The Paso Lovera CE-3: A High Strangeness Event

The Paso Lovera CE-3: A High Strangeness Event

By Pablo Omastott – Investigadores de Campo OVNI Unidos



Within the framework of encounters with unknown entities recorded within the Province of Corrientes, some of which have been investigated by Ufology as close encounters of the third kind, we find some which are of interest to the researcher without being directly related to the UFO phenomenon. This is the case with the Paso Lovera incident (San Luis del Palmar – Corrientes), an event with an elevated quotient of high strangeness and which would not be considered, in of itself, within the case histories of ufology, had it not been that the events occurred in an area that has been surveyed before and after the incident within the local case histories. We shall briefly explain this later on.



Toward the second half of January 2002, on a Sunday night, we were doing a radio show on the subject of UFOs with journalist Francisco Villagrán. We had been on air for two seasons at the time, and our broadcast enjoyed a measure of popularity. It was during the show that we received a call from photojournalist Omar Vallejos, who frequently remarked on new UFO events from the interior of the province. Within the customary accounts involving strange lights – very common near the Route 5 area – there was one that became the center of attention that evening.



“We have here some girls who had a creature appear before them…standing over three meters tall,” he told us. We exchanged startled looks at the station, as it was the first time we’d heard anything like it, at least in our area, even for Villagrán, who had several decades of experience in the subject under his belt. So the communication ended with two stunned researchers arranging a visit with our correspondent so we could learn more details about this one-of-a-kind event.



We adjusted details mid-week and set off the following Saturday toward San Luis del Palmar, some 25 kilometers distant from the city of Corrientes. The travelers included Eduardo Lopez, of the Federación Corrientina de Ovnilogia, Francisco Villagrán and this author, who at the time was also a member of the aforementioned group.



Our first stop was in the town of San Luis, where we collected Omar Vallejos and his wife, who would act as our contact with the female protagonists of the case. We took the road again, following a long dirt trail that eventually led us to the young ladies’ place of residence. Along a side-street of the trail we found a typical rural house surrounded with trees, where we first spoke with their father. After a brief introduction, we were finally able to speak to the witnesses.







Gabriela Lencinas, age 15 at the time, was the first witness we interviewed. She told us that every weekend it was their custom to visit the town some 8 kilometers distant from their farm. That Saturday, January 12, as they headed back around 20:00 hours, they were able to see – in their own words – how “something like a cloud formed in their path, and a gigantic image appeared.” Before this, they said, a car used as a taxicab had passed them, and it too had stopped upon seeing the phenomenon. When asked about what happened to the driver, she said: “We saw him get out, see it, then get back into his vehicle and take off quickly.”



At the time, the girls were a little more than 10 meters distant from the apparition, but even then Gabriela was unable to be more specific or provide details about the sighting. She only said that “its shape was visible.”



After this, the figure began to rise and vanish, and the car drove directly under it, after which the girls proceeded forward. When asked if it seemed like something solid or vaporous, and if they managed to see its features, she told us that it was “real”, highlighting that it had frizzy, “sharp” hair, and at the moment of its manifestation, the apparition seemed to approach them with open hands “as though trying to scare us.” They were little more than 2 kilometers from their home, and upon arriving, they told their parents what happened, and subsequently told friends who remarked about sightings of strange lights in the area.



Later – and always separately – we interviewed the second witness, Griselda Olivera, 19. She was much more consistent in her story and gave us much more interesting details. She said that as they came down the road, they saw something dark that swiftly turned into a figure resembling “a giant ape” with “unruly” hair. At that moment she asked her companion if she was seeing the same thing, to which she replied in the affirmative. She also mentioned the fact that the driver got out of his car to look at the figure before taking off in a hurry, after which they were able to see [the figure] turn into “black smoke rising into the air.” When asked about the being’s aspect, she coincided in the description of “longish, unruly hair” and “full of static”. However, she was unable to make out the presence of eyes or a nose. According to her, its arms were outstretched, and when asked about its hands and whether it wore any gloves, she replied that its fingers were visible, but not its feet, which she was unable to see. As to her feelings at the time, she was somewhat frightened, and when asked about the height of what she had seen, using a mango tree (5 meters tall) as reference, she replied in the negative, pointing instead to a eucalyptus tree standing 10 meters tall).



The girls were separately shown images of humanoid entities corresponding to various morphologies. Both pointed out the one commonly known as Type 3: tall, slender and with long hair. After the interview was over, we asked them to take us to where the events occurred, heading there for a brief analysis of the location and to take a few photographs, some of which are shown here.

While the facts reported herein have not occurred simultaneously with the UFO phenomenon in this small section of the Province of Corrientes, both the manifestations of lights and high-strangeness incidents such as entity sightings appear to take place with a certain parallelism or temporality.



Provincial Route No. 5, links the city of Corrientes with San Luis del Palmar and other towns of the interior. During this first phase of the journey, we collected reports from people who have seen everything from incandescent spheres (1 and 2) ) hanging on the side of the road and “flying fluorescent tubes” (3) to helmeted figures (4) and very tall figures leaping through the undergrowth, as was told to us during this same visit, where “field laborers of that property” had seen very tall figures moving “in leaps and bounds” several nights earlier.



The details gleaned from a survey of this case at the time, shortly after it occurred, do not allow us reach a thorough conclusion as to the type of phenomenon faced by these young women, and whether it is indirectly related to the presence of lights in the area. Furthermore, alternative analyses have been put forward, such as the one proposed by Scott Corrales and the holographic theory (5), which could explain the sudden apparition in part, but the fact is that this incident has added new veins that create even further questions on the true nature of the manifestations, which occur in this location recurrently at given periods of time.

(1) On the evening of August 21, 1997, a group of journalists traveling along Route 5 to the locality of San Luis del Palmar before the town’s religious festivities saw an “antenna light” in the distance before reaching the police check point (some 6-7 kilometers distant from the city). A little bit further along, they could see the light was beyond the police checkpoint by 100 meters and at a height of 20 meters, over what must have been a lagoon in the area. The light did not blink and remained static. However, upon returning in the early morning hours, the light was no longer there - Federación Correntina de Ovnilogía (1997): Case: Red Sphere. Corrientes, 21 August (unpublished).

(2) Eyewitness G. Acevedo, 35, a policeman, was in the back yard of his home in the Parque Cadenas neighborhood outside Corrientes , 500 meters from Route No. 5. At 21:35 hours he saw three luminous spheres forming a static triangle in the sky, which later took off at speed toward the NE and turned off – in his own words – like a TV set. López, Eduardo (2001) Case: Acevedo. Own research., Red Mensajero, Corrientes, 06 January (unpublished).

(3) At 06:30 a.m., witness J.C.R., a policeman, was in the back of a pickup truck with a colleague, driving along Route 5 toward Corrientes, when in the vicinity of Sapucay, his colleague was startled by an antenna light some 200 meters distant from the road. It suddenly turned into something resembling a fluorescent tube that accompanied them for the following 2 km before vanishing. López, Eduardo (2001) Case: Flying fluorescent tube. Own research., Red Mensajero, Corrientes, 29 May (unpublished).

(4) A renowned doctor at the San Juan Clinic of the city of Corrientes, who requested anonymity, told researcher Francisco Villagrán that toward 1982 or 1983 she was returning home at sunset, driving her car from San Luis del Plamar along Route 5, when she was able to see – at an unspecified point on the road, along the side of the road and in the wilderness – a towering, 2 meter tall figure that appeared to be dressed in an astronaut’s helmet and suit. This captured her attention, but what surprised her more so was that the being moved quickly some meters sideways, but not walking, but rather in a way suggestive of sliding in the air. Frightened by the unusual sighting, she sped away from the site. Villagrán, Francisco (1983) Case: Dra. G. I. Own research. Corrientes (unpublished).

(5) Analyzing the Paso Lovera case within the context of the numerous animals found in 2002 in Argentina with strange mutilation marks, Scott Corrales proposes in his article Holograms and High Strangeness, published in the U.S.A.’s Fate Magazine that the events surrounding the mutilations and sightings could have been related to the use of sophisticated holographic projectors.

UPDATE: Humanoid Presence in Necochea, Argentina





UPDATE: Humanoid Presence in Necochea, Argentina



Contributing editor Guillermo Giménez has sent us an update on the investigations surrounding the presence of an alleged humanoid in the beaches of Necochea: "We have located four (4) witnesses who have spoken of the strange presence of a humanoid-type being in Necochea on Tuesday, May 20, at approximately 22:15 hours. It appeared to float, had a normal stature and took long strides. It was seen from an apartment in the coastal area of the beach resort [readers are advised to remember that it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere - Ed.]. It moved along the beach, near the sea, before vanishing abruptly. It appeared to fade away, as parts of its body were vanishing. It should also be noted that it was a very cold night and there was no one on the shore. On Sunday, May 18, 2014, two (2) other people also reported seeing a strange, man-like figure heading to the sea from their vantage point in the balcony of an apartment facing the shore. The site was lit up at the very edge of the shore. After 22:00 hours on that odd, rainy night, whatever headed into the sea vanished like the white lights at its edge. It was neither a motorcycle nor a vehicle on the beach, since it was raining. The "being" vanished along with the lights upon reaching them."



The investigation is in progress - a full report will appear soon.

Provocative Video Showing Mayan Depictions of Flying Saucers


Whether the objects depicted in these ancient Mayan glyphs are UFOs as we understand them or not is an open question, but they appear similar to the craft the George Adamski drew during his sightings in the early fifties. In addition, the enormous amount of UFO activity taking place to this day over Mexico suggests that they might well have been seeing the same phenomena.



If so, then this has been going on a lot longer than most UFO researchers would like to believe. Your Out There editor thinks that the phenomenon is, simply, part of life on Earth, perhaps ongoing monitoring by advanced beings for their own reasons, or perhaps something that remains beyond our understanding.



In any case, the video is well worth a look.

"Anciana caníbal" mató al marido y cocinó varios órganos.

"Una mujer de 71 años, detenida en Francia a fines de mayo por el asesinato de su marido octogenario, cocinó el corazón, la nariz y los órganos genitales del hombre, refirió una fuente de la investigación.



Los hechos fueron en la noche del 21 al 22 de mayo en Longwy, un pueblito del este de Francia, no muy lejos de la frontera con Luxemburgo. De nacionalidad argelina, la mujer, que crió junto a su marido un total de diez hijos fue detenida muy rápido, con la ropa aún impregnada de la sangre y los restos de su compañero, un obrero siderúrgico.



Los investigadores observaron enseguida que el hombre había sido descuartizado, pero sólo después supieron que partes del cuerpo habían sido cocinadas. "No se sabe si los comió", dijo una fuente, subrayando que se trata de una suerte de "Hannibal Lecter femenina".



Según el abogado de la mujer, Caroline Depretz, fue una "crisis de furiosa locura". Hasta ahora, ella no dijo nada al respecto y está bajo vigilancia en la unidad psiquiátrica del penitenciario de Nancy-Maxéville en espera de exámenes médicos para establecer si puede ser sancionada penalmente."

Flight 370: Greater Danger than Ever

The fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has disappeared from the news cycle, but Malaysian police have announced that the reconstruction of data from the pilot's flight simulator suggests that he flew it into the southern Indian Ocean and may have landed it on a runway on a small island.



If this is true, then that plane is almost certainly in the hands of well financed terrorists and represents a peril of epic proportions. Given the range of a 777--especially on that has been stripped of its seats and fitted with an atomic weapon that would be much lighter than a load of passengers, luggage and cabin equipment--the plane could reach almost any American city from a runway in central Asia or Pakistan.

La CIA diseñó un muñeco de Osama bin Laden con aspecto "satánico" para que los niños le temieran

"La Agencia Central de Inteligencia de EEUU (CIA) ensayó en secreto desde 2005 la producción de un muñeco de aspecto satánico con la imagen del líder de Al Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, ha revelado el diario The Washington Post.



"Por más de una década la CIA ha usado aviones robóticos, satélites, espías, informantes y aparatos de rastreo para combatir a Al Qaeda en Pakistán", pero "también consideró un plan para librar la guerra con juguetes", aseguró el rotativo.



El 'Post', que atribuyó la versión a "personas familiarizadas con el proyecto" a las que no identifica, explicó que el rostro del muñeco "estaba pintado con un material que se disolvía con el calor", lo que dejaba al descubierto las facciones satánicas.



Bajo esa pintura aparecía "un Bin Laden de rostro rojo que parecía un demonio, con penetrantes ojos verdes y marcas faciales negras".



La meta del proyecto, que tuvo poca duración, era sencilla: asustar a los niños y a sus parientes enseñándoles a temer al líder de la red terrorista.



Según el 'Post', la producción de los prototipos del muñeco "Ojos satánicos" estuvo a cargo de Donald Levine, el otrora ejecutivo del fabricante de juguetes Hasbro, quien desempeñó un papel clave en la creación de los muñecos G.I. Joe, muy populares en EEUU (...)"

13 vuelos desaparecen durante media hora de los radares

"Según un inspector de seguridad aérea austriaco, se trata de un hecho "sin precedentes".

La información de los vuelos desapareció de las pantallas de los controladores aéreos en Austria el 5 de junio y 10 de junio durante 25 minutos en cada una de las ocasiones, señaló Marcus Pohanka, del servicio de control de seguridad del espacio aéreo austriaco Austro Control, según cita la agencia AP.



Pohanka explicó que en ambos casos se desvanecieron repentinamente los datos sobre la ubicación y la identidad de las 13 aeronaves. El empleado de Austro Control calificó lo sucedido como un incidente "sin precedentes".



Sin embargo Austria no fue el único país que se vio afectado por este extraño 'apagón': otros países vecinos también percibieron un mal funcionamiento en sus radares. El diario austríaco 'Kurier' señaló que controladores aéreos de Múnich y Karlsruhe (Alemania) y Praga (República Checa) afirmaron haber experimentado problemas similares con sus radares. Un experto en aviación, citado por el rotativo, sugirió que la misteriosa desaparición podría deberse a problemas de interferencias.



Aunque Pohanka rechazó revelar a qué compañías aéreas pertenecían los aviones, sí dio a entender que algunos volaban a gran altura y en ellos viajaban pasajeros. Asimismo, subrayó que ninguna de las aeronaves se encontró en peligro en ningún momento, dado que los controladores aéreos establecieron contacto con los pilotos de esas aeronaves de inmediato.



Se espera que la Agencia Europea de Seguridad Aérea abra una investigación para tratar de esclarecer lo sucedido."

Rosalía, la niña momificada que parece abrir los ojos

"Rosalía Lombardo tenía dos años cuando una fuerte neumonía terminó con su vida el 6 de diciembre de 1920 en su natal Palermo, en Italia. Su padre devastado hizo un pedido especial a un reconocido médico italiano de la época, Alfredo Salafia.

La misión de Salafia era embalsamar a la menor de la familia Lombardo. Sus estudios en técnicas de momificación empleada en los faraones egipcios eran su mejor carta de presentación.

Hace unos años el cadáver fue descubierto en las Catacumbas Capuchinas de Palermo. Por su perfecto estado se le denominó "La Bella Durmiente".



Los estudios posteriores para determinar la técnica empleada llevaron a un grupo de científicos italianos a instalar una cámara dentro de su sarcófago, capaz de tomar fotografías cada 60 segundos.

Las imágenes que se recogieron muestran un extraño fenómeno, los ojos de la pequeña se abren y se cierran varias veces al día. En un intento por explicarlo, el grupo de científicos dijo que los flashes de las cámaras y la humedad del ambiente generaban una foto descomposición en el cuerpo, generando que los ojos de la pequeña generen ese efecto.

Weekender: Scientists Predict Mass Extinction In 30 Years - How Can We Change This Outcome?




Mass extinctions have happened periodically throughout Earth's history for a variety of different reasons, with the usual culprits being either asteroid hits or climate change. The Eocene extinction was originally thought to have been caused by climate induced issues, but recent evidence has suggested that the changes in the weather occurred due to a meteor strike, now believed to be the one that created the Popigai crater in Siberia. The resulting "impact winter" was caused by tiny particles blanketing the Earth and reflecting the sun's heat, creating a global temperature drop that wiped out most of the Earth's species.

The World Within Us: "Friendly" Intestinal Bacteria Are Crucial For Good Health




We are constantly looking to preserve the world around us in order to make it a happier and healthier place, but for optimum health, it seems we need to look within.



We may not care to think about it, but we are never actually "alone": our gut plays host to around 100 trillion bacteria, or flora, at any one time, meaning that there are ten times more bacteria than cells in the human body. We are conditioned to be fearful of bacteria, and in some cases this is not without good reason, but not all bacteria are harmful; in fact our health depends on the activity of the "friendly" bacteria that live in synergistic harmony with us inside our intestines.

Un pterodáctilo del siglo XX

hill_pterodactyl_1aDesde que a finales del siglo XVIII fuera descrito el primer fósil de pterodáctilo , la popularidad de ese tipo de dinosaurio volador no dejó de crecer. Puede que fuera por eso que, buscando inspiración a la hora de encontrar un nuevo tipo de avión más seguro que los convencionales, se terminara bautizando así al avión que hoy nos visita que, además, recuerda a lo lejos uno de esos animales prehistóricos. Se trata del Westland-Hill Pterodactyl , un tipo de ala volante que cobró vida a lo largo de diversos modelos en los años veinte y treinta del pasado siglo. Algunos de los modelos más perfeccionados fueron construidos por la empresa británica Westland Aircraft, pero todos ellos fueron diseñados por el ingeniero Geoffrey Terence Roland Hill .


modelos_1928

Varios modelos del Westland-Hill Pterodactyl (1928). Fuente.


pterodactilo_1931 Llegaron a desarrollarse hasta ocho modelos diferentes. El diseño original estaba inspirado en la forma de las gaviotas y el objetivo de esta curiosa forma se centraba en la seguridad, sobre todo en evitar la entrada en pérdida en caso de parada del motor. Este avión sin cola y con alerones móviles en los extremos de las alas voló inicialmente como planeador en 1926, siendo equipado con un motor de pequeña potencia en su siguiente versión. A partir de esos primitivos ensayos la Westland tomó el timón del proyecto. El modelo de 1931 ya permitía transportar a tres personas y en 1932 se presentó una ágil versión militar que, a pesar de mostrar algunas cualidades interesantes, no prosperó (vídeo del Westland-Hill Pterodactyl Mk. IA).

Toreando automóviles en Madrid (1930)

Carl_SchleiffEl capitán Franz Carl Schleiff fue un as de la aviación alemana durante la Primera Guerra Mundial que contó con 21 aviones derribados en combate, luchando junto al célebre Manfred von Richthofen, el Barón Rojo, o al menos eso era lo que afirmaba el personaje en las entrevistas que ofrecía después de sus espectáculos automovilísticos. Finalizada la contienda y tras haber perdido el brazo izquierdo, decidió dedicar su tiempo a idear nuevos modos de proteger a los automovilistas. Así desarrolló un nuevo sistema de parachoques reformable cuyo fundamento técnico puede consultarse en la patente estadounidense US 1717855 A , Shock absorber, especially for motor vehicles.


El parachoques de Schleiff permitía la absorción progresiva de la energía del choque logrando, al menos en teoría, que los ocupantes del vehículo no sufrieran grandes daños. El coche no llegaba a entrar en contacto con el obstáculo, pues el ingenioso parachoques de caucho elástico se encargaba de protegerlo. Claro, todo esto a velocidades moderadas, aunque en algunas pruebas realizadas incluso por encima de los cincuenta kilómetros por hora los resultados fueron buenos.


Schleiff_1

El espectáculo de Schleiff en Madrid. Estampa, 31-1-1931.


El empeño de Schleiff era lograr que todos los coches del mundo llevaran su sistema parachoques y, para lograr ese objetivo, se embarcó en una serie de demostraciones espectaculares que le llevaron desde Nueva York a París, pasando por… ¡la plaza de toros de Madrid! Sí, en los convulsos días de diciembre de 1930, tuvo lugar una extraña “corrida de toros” en la plaza madrileña con el apoyo del Real Automóvil Club de España y a la que asistió un público numeroso.


Schleiff_2

Triunfo del as de la aviación alemana en Madrid. Estampa, 31-1-1931.


Las pruebas consistieron en someter a un automóvil equipado con el novísimo parachoques a tres pruebas. Por una parte, chocó contra un vehículo parado. Luego, se estampó contra una barrera de madera y, finalmente, se estrelló contra un coche fijado al suelo de la plaza. Las velocidades rondaron siempre los 45 kilómetros por hora y, para sorpresa de los presentes, que estaban esperando ver una lluvia de chapas y tuercas, el coche soportó los tres violentos encuentros. Todo un espectáculo que pasó relativamente sin pena ni gloria en la prensa nacional, más ocupada en el grave clima político de la época que en espectáculos como el de Schleiff.

The super-computers are typically given global access to all information, including nuclear warhead control systems, which they then use to systematically obliterate the world.

El millonario americano que esconde dinero en ciudades de EE UU lo hará en Madrid en julio

"Nueva York se sumó este sábado con entusiasmo al fenómeno de 'Hidden Cash', el juego puesto en marcha por un millonario que esconde dinero en diferentes lugares y da pistas a través de Twitter para encontrarlo.

Central Park, en Manhattan, y Prospect Park, en Brooklyn, fueron los lugares elegidos para el desembarco en la Gran Manzana de esta iniciativa, que nació el pasado mayo en California. Tras permanecer durante semanas en el anonimato, el inversor Jason Buzi desveló recientemente estar detrás de la idea, que pretende llevar también a otros países. El juego consiste en la búsqueda de sobres con dinero en efectivo depositados en distintos puntos de una ciudad a través de las pistas que 'Hidden Cash' da en Twitter. La cuenta acumula más de medio millón de seguidores y anima a los afortunados a publicar fotografías con sus premios, habitualmente billetes de 50 dólares, algo que este sábado hicieron un buen número de neoyorquinos.

Hidden Cash, que ya ha pasado por ciudades como San Francisco y Los Ángeles, tiene previsto llevar a cabo su experimento este domingo a Chicago y Buzi ya ha avanzado planes para hacer su juego en Europa este verano. En una entrevista reciente a la CNN, Buzi indicó que el próximo mes de julio llevará este fenónemo a las ciudades de Londres, París y Madrid"

«Dracula è sepolto a Napoli, ecco dov'è la tomba»

«Il conte Dracula è morto a Napoli, è stato sepolto nel cuore della città ed è ancora qui»: c’è un gruppo di persone che da settimane percorre strade e vicoli a caccia del segreto.

E non sono ragazzini sognatori, fanatici, esaltati, ma serissimi studiosi dell’università di Tallinn in Estonia. Sono convinti di ciò che fanno, sostengono di avere già in mano i documenti che provano la verità, così hanno avviato una campagna di ricerche sul territorio.

La storia è affascinante, ricca di sfumature, di colpi di scena, però assomiglia troppo alla trama di un romanzo d’avventure per sembrare vera; anche perché, attualmente, manca il particolare che la renderebbe clamorosa, il colpo di scena finale: manca proprio il corpo del conte Dracula. «È per questo motivo che, dopo aver avviato studi documentali, ora siamo scesi sul campo. E sappiamo anche dove andare a cercare. Sappiamo dov’è la tomba di Dracula a Napoli»... (...)"

The Pereyra Case: Humans or Humanoids?

The Pereyra Case: Humans or Humanoids?

By Luis Burgos



The following case occurred in a major year for Argentinean ufology, as was the 1965 flap. The coherence of the eyewitness report and the details of the event place it among the classic cases of close encounters of the third kind (CE3K) to the extent that Pereyra insists to this day that he came across "a Russian" on that occasion.



Years ago, Ing. José Marengo, deceased, told me that this case had been among the most impressive of all his investigations. At the time, Marengo was an advisor to ONIFE, the institute led by Fabio Zerpa, and in later years I had the pleasure of including him in my group and in my field research. In 1999, Paco Martinez, a researcher with the CEFU-Hemisferios group, based in Buenos Aires, told me that he was able to gain access to Pereyra, and despite the 34 year span separating him from the case, was able to retell the entire experience in detail. Something similar occurred with Daniel Lopez of our FAO organization when he interviewed Maria Elodia Pretzel in Villa Carlos Paz, Cordoba, regarding a "visit" by a strange entity in 1968.



The case took place in Monte de los Curas, where a monastery stood many years ago. It is located in Villa La Florida, locality of San Francisco Solano, 18 kilometers from Capital Federal. In order to get there, it is necessary to cross a stream that runs under the General Belgrano railroad lines. We can already see the three "standards of behavior" or "poles of attraction": wilderness, water and train tracks.



The witness, Ramón E. Pereyra, 38 years old at the time, enjoyed a good reputation in the area. A hard-working businessman all of his life, married with two children and above all, a reliable man when it came to a such a significant story as this, which contains no traces of sensationalism or promotional goals. At no time was the word "extraterrestrial" mentioned. According to Pereyra, he had come across "a Russian" that day.



At 8:30 a.m., 20 July 1965: the day had turned out to be overcast and with drizzle. The witness made his rounds delivering milk and bread, as was his custom. Suddenly, he saw "a sort of luminous parachute" fall from the sky. He got out of the delivery vehicle, walked some 500 meters (1600 feet), crossed the stream and reached Monte de los Curas. He then realized that what he saw descending from the sky was not a parachute.



A being - dressed in a grey, hooded coverall - was seated within an oval-shaped object with a transparent dome, its back turned to Pereyra. However, 30 meters (100 feet) into the woods, stood another being, dressed in the same manner but with the hood removed, allowing him to see its face clearly.



The entity, standing between 1.75 and 1.80 meters tall, had binoculars hanging around its neck and a holster on its right leg. [Pereyra] was also able to make out a belt with a silver buckle and boots made out "what looked like leather." With short, blond, backswept hair, the entity looked like an average person, perhaps a foreign one.



As occurs in 90% of CE-3s, the attitude of indifference toward witnesses or sudden flight occurred again. The occupant standing outside the UFO was looking skyward with a piece of paper in its hand, becoming aware of Pereyra's presence, walked hurriedly back to the object, crossing the human's path. Pereyra asked the visitor "if he needed anything", as he thought the device was a small aircraft.



The being did not reply, placing a hand on the vessel's dome, which lifted up, allowing the stranger to sit down and then closing behind him. There was a slight sound, similar to that of autogenous welding, coming out of the exhausts and the UFO rose vertically, halting 30 meters over the treetops before talking off at high speed "like an elongated light..."

Several days would go by before Pereyra told his story to anyone.



The basic points arise from the details of the case itself. The first lies in the "mission" of the UFO and its occupants. Without a doubt, the skyward glance at the sky by the standing entity, paper and binoculars in its hand, while his companion "waited" aboard the craft, suggest that something was going to fly overhead - something that was unquestionably the ufonauts' goal. Another one of their vehicles? Perhaps a mothership? Or an urgent place to hide? Everything indicates that we are not witnessing a "spontaneous repair" as occurs in other cases.

The second associates the humanoid landing with the old monastery that stood in the vicinity long ago, upholding the validity of the interest displayed by these intelligences in places where abbeys, convents, churches, religious orders, etc. are located.



The final major hypothesis would have been the worldwide commotion that would have occurred if -- instead of Ramón Pereyra, a man of passive demeanor -- Eugenio Douglas had occupied his place. In 1963, Douglas took out a gun to "defend" himself against the humanoids in Monte Maíz, Córdoba...or the three policemen (or soldiers?) who opened machine gun fire against the entities of Arroyo Tapalqué, Buenos Aires, in 1968...or just someone opening fire against the characters with a gun. Would it have been another Roswell? Another Varghina? Or a street brawl between earthlings and aliens with an unpredictable outcome? More and more questions about a case that was exceptional for its time.

Can Brain Implants Stop School Shootings, Or Are They Causing Them?




In the wake of yet more bloodshed in our educational establishments during the past few weeks, a chilling map has been created that illustrates the full extent of the school shooting phenomena in the United States.

The map shows a grim reality: that since the Sandy Hook Massacre in December 2012, a startling total of 74 other shootings associated with schools and colleges have taken place across the U.S..



The map includes any form of incident in which a firearm was discharged inside a school building or on school or campus grounds, including homicides, suicides, and accidents, as defined by the Everytown for Gun Safety (EGS) network in its February 2014 Analysis of School Shootings report.

Very Unusual ISS Video Capture


A number of groups monitor footage from the ISS. One of these is Secure Team, and this time they have captured something quite unusual. We really do not have an explanation for this footage. Unfortunately, because it is impossible to tell how far away the object is, or even whether or not it is a reflection, it must be classified simply as unknown. Your Out There editor's instinct is that it is a physical object of some kind, possibly even a craft of unknown origin. In any case, a very interesting capture.

Plant Intelligence, Superconsciousness and our Human Future

This is Laurence Galian's first visit to Dreamland, and he has a powerful message about how the power elite hold us back and what we can do about it. He calls himself a 'quantic vibrational therapist,' so Whitley starts out by asking him to explain what in the world that means. And that begins one of the most mind-opening interviews that has ever been presented on this program.

A Wild, Wild Ride...in a Wheelchair

Whitley and I go to one of the local farmer’s markets several times a week. When we’re in the farmer’s market, I usually ride in my wheelchair—not because I can’t walk, but because it puts me at eye level with all the fruits and vegetables.



We own a practical hybrid car right now, but we used to own a zippy sports car. So, can you guess which style of driving Whitley favors when he’s pushing my wheelchair? Yep, he pushes the wheelchair like he’s driving a sports car, careening through crowds, almost bumping into people, clattering over rough terrain at breakneck speed.

Nacen dos perros verdes en Valladolid (España)

"Eres más raro que un perro verde". Ese es el refrán, porque ver un perro verde parece raro, muy raro. Pues no. Y si no que le pregunten a Aída Vallelado. Esta criadora de perros, que vive en Laguna de Duero, en Valladolid, se llevó una gran sorpresa cuando el pasado 3 de junio una de sus perras, Micaela, de raza podenco, dio a luz a cinco cachorros, dos de ellos de color verde.



«Fue una sorpresa», explica Aída a Gonzoo, «al principio pensé que era suciedad, pero froté y no se iba». El caso está siendo investigado por la Facultad de Veterinaria de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, ya que parece que, por lo menos en España, no se había dado un caso así.



La única diferencia que distinguía a los dos cachorros del resto de la camada es que en apariencia eran más débiles. De hecho, uno de ellos, una hembra, ya ha fallecido. El otro, Trébol, un macho, se mantiene, aunque su tamaño es aproximadamente la mitad que el de sus hermanos y «le está costando alimentarse», apunta Aída.



Desde el Centro Veterinario Colmillos y Zarpas, en Cuéllar (Segovia), Daniel Valverde explica a Gonzoo que se están haciendo pruebas para corroborar el origen del peculiar color, pero que todo apunta, supuestamente, a la biliverdina, un pigmento presente en la placenta y que habría sido absorbido por los cachorros durante la gestación, algo poco común (...)"

Un hombre confiesa que descuartizó a una mujer, la quemó y se la comió

"El estadounidense Gregory Scott Hale ha confesado que mató la semana pasada a una mujer, descuartizó el cadáver y lo quemó en una hoguera en su jardín para después comerse parte de los restos mortales, según ha informado la cadena de televisión estadounidense CNN.

Según consta en la declaración jurada presentada contra él en el tribunal encargado del caso, Hale ha reconocido que asesinó el pasado viernes a Lisa Hyder, de 36 años, y que, posteriormente, la desmembró y guardó los restos en varios cubos. El asesino confeso entró el lunes en prisión con una fianza de 1,1 millones de euros y ha sido acusado de asesinato en primer grado y de abuso del cadáver, después de que las fuerzas de seguridad se enterasen el pasado domingo de lo ocurrido.

La investigación no ha encontrado conexiones entre el asesino y la víctima antes de que se cometiese el crimen, según ha informado el capitán Frank Watkins, destinado en la Oficina del Sheriff del condado de Coffee, en el sur de Tennessee. Watkins ha dicho que no hay motivos para pensar que Hale haya cometido un crimen de esta naturaleza anteriormente. "Lisa era una chica muy dulce, una chica muy bonita" ha declarado una vecina y amiga de la víctima. "Hay que tener una mente muy enferma para hacer algo así", ha añadido. Además, se desconoce si algún letrado está representando en este momento al acusado, que está previsto que comparezca ante el juez el próximo 23 de junio."
