Strange Daytime Black Blinking Blob In Airspace Of Columbia (SC) Airport – VIDEO, MUFON Reports
Strange Daytime Black Blinking Blob In Airspace Of Columbia (SC) Airport – VIDEO, MUFON Reports
Me, my mother and stepfather were sitting on the deck out back by the pool. My stepfather was looking west for birds when he noticed this object and said to us, what’s that? A balloon? Quickly realizing it’s not following the wind heading east. He grabbed the binoculars as my mother and I found it. This is where the video starts. It was just enough to focus in with your bare eyes. It was shaped like a barrel, overblown to the point of bowing. The “wooden slats” now spaced apart from the bowing appeared to be a metal, greyish in color. With at least two, possibly three horizontal straps made of the same metal. The interior if you will was close to a deflated football tight against the straps but wrinkled from being half flat. From what we could see through the binoculars it had roughly the same texture as the football. My stepfather and I both agree we “seemed to see” a teardrop tip on top. It was hovering and rotating, gaining and losing altitude, slowly heading north northwest starting out where we perceived the Columbia international airport is, if not over it, definitely in their direct airspace with at least one commercial airplane taking off not but a half mile or so away. Unfortunately the plane didn’t make the video. We watched it for 15 minutes with no new surprises until it was too small to see where we perceived to be Lake Murray.

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO ALIEN ABDUCTIONS?by Nick Pope.
In the late Eighties and throughout the Nineties, alien abductions were at the heart of ufology. How did what might be regarded as a subset of ufology become its central meme? Abductions (irrespective of whether one believes they take place in a literal sense) could arguably be regarded as an evolution of the contactee phenomenon, and for those who believe UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecraft, it’s only logical that one should look beyond the vehicles and focus on the nature and agenda of the occupants. John Keel’s 1967 article “Never Mind the Saucer! Did You See the Guys Who Were Driving?” articulates this point perfectly, but it wasn’t until the publication of “Missing Time” (1981), “Intruders” (1987) and “Communion” (1987) that Keel’s question became the question most asked in the UFO community.

THE SUPERNATURAL POWER OF THE ARK OF THE COVENANT AND OTHER ANCIENT ASTRONAUT MYSTERIESBy Sean Casteel.
Recent programs on the History Channel and elsewhere on cable television have helped popularize the concept that extraterrestrials have been visiting Earth since time immemorial and have been responsible for many of the advancements of human civilization. Once the mainstay of writers such as Erich von Daniken, Brinsley Le Poer Trench and W.R. Drake, the concept has since inspired big budget movie epics and television shows like “Ancient Aliens” and, more recently, “In Search Of Aliens,” hosted by the "wild-haired" Giorgios Tsoukalos.

CATTLE MUTILATION REPORTED TO MUFON MISSOURIby Roger Marsch.
A Wright County, MO, radio station employee filed a report for a local listener who experienced a recent cattle mutilation, according to July 28, 2014, testimony in Case 58460 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database. More.
LTHE LITTLE GREEN MEN OF LA PLATA - THE VILLA MONTORO CASEby Scott Corrales.
Toward late November and during the month of December of 1983, the neighborhood of Villa Montoro on the outskirts of La Plata (capital of the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina) became the epicenter for a series of reports by local residents – mainly children and teenagers – who claimed having witnessed encounters with small, greenish, humanoid entities. The case became known as “the little green men of La Plata” and it caused significant local interest in the early days of the restoration of democratic rule in the country. More...
MERWIN AREA SIGHTING JULY 23, 2014!by Lori Carter.
Even though we are no longer doing field research, we still hear about strange objects and events and as we have stated before, we will share these on the Midnight Observer. The following sighting was sent to me on the morning of July 24th, 2014 via Facebook. The young lady that submitted the information to me also included drawings of what she saw. She was, at one time, involved in paranormal research herself. Following is the report as she sent it to us. More
TIME TRAVEL AND THE BLACK MIRRORby Dirk Vanderr Ploeg.
Sometimes it is best to hear directly from the Experiencers themselves and we feel this is one of those times. The following account describes what the HR Team believes is time travel. If it is not Time Travel in the literal sense, this may have been interdimensional travel. In any case, it is reminiscent of some of Jim Sparks’ and others’ time travel encounters. More...
THE SKYWHALE - REVIEWby Deborah Richards.
The basic premise of ‘The Skywhale’ by Deborah Richards is that UFOs are really living creatures that can hover and fly through the sky. In the book Esme and her teenage brother George find a skywhale while they are out treasure-hunting with a metal detector in the silt of a river estuary. The creature had been basking just under the silt and the metal detector wakes it up. It rises up into the air and flies off with the two young people clinging onto the roots (or are they veins?) on the creature’s back. Esme can communicate with the creature telepathically but George is already too old. Over the course of a day they discover that the skywhale is highly intelligent with a great sense of humour and a liking for danger that ultimately gets them all into trouble. The skywhale is pan-dimensional and can ‘jump’ out of trouble but the youngsters are not. More...
COMPARING UFO BUFFS AND RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISTSby Ron Murdock.
I find a common theme among the human race is how one group can criticize others for alleged absurd beliefs yet hold on to what could be called equally absurd beliefs. An example if UFO buffs and religious fundamentalists. UFO believers have been regarded as a flaky bunch while religious leaders and followers are generally thought of as outstanding citizens. There are times I beg to differ. More..

REMEMBER THE SUNKEN CITY NEAR CUBA?by April Holloway.
Just over a decade ago, a team of explorers were working on an exploration and survey mission off the western coast of Cuba when their sonar equipment picked up a perplexing series of stone structures lying some 650 metres below the surface. The structures appeared completely analogous against the barren ‘desert’ of the ocean floor and seemed to show symmetrically organized stones reminiscent of an urban development. A media flurry soon ensued with news sites sporting headlines such as ‘Atlantis Discovered in Cuba’ and ‘Lost City of the Caribbean Found’. More...
ELONGATED SKULLS MAY NOT HAVE HUMAN ORIGINSby Dirk Vander Ploeg.
More than 300 elongated skulls – the largest ones in the world - were found in a massive graveyard on Peru’s Paracas Peninsula in 1928. While elongated skulls usually are formed by various methods of head binding, the Paracas skulls are quite different. Several February 2014 articles report that the Paracas skulls are 60 percent heavier than normal human skulls and have 25 percent more volume. With simple head binding neither the weight nor the volume of a skull is increase, only reshaped..More...
THE LONG LEGACY OF MILITARY INTELLIGENCE AND FLYING SAUCERS - PART IIIby Doc Vega.
There are several aspects that can be broken down into the multi-level approach to intelligence analysis. One of the primary prerogatives is sociological impact. We know now from recent revelations that the hysteria created during the Orson Wells broadcast of “War of the Worlds” in 1938 was indeed intended to monitor the public’s response to an ominous announcement of an invasion from a hostile extraterrestrial civilization. Obviously the results were nearly catastrophic. The havoc created by that one radio play regardless of the numerous reminders that it was merely a Fireside Theater radio performance made little difference to a listening audience that had experienced pandemonium.

The discovery was unveiled during a teleconference with reporters on Tuesday and is the subject of an upcoming paper in The Astrophysical Journal.
The two bubbles could have been inflated by a past eruption from the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way.
The bubbles span 50,000 light-years across the sky.
They were found with NASA’s Fermi Gamma-Ray Telescope, which surveys the sky every three hours for the highest-energy light.
Among the 1,500 sources of gamma rays Fermi has mapped so far, nothing resembles the bubble-shaped structures, which stretch across more than half of the visible sky, from the constellation Virgo to the constellation Grus.
“We know it didn’t get to be that big by sitting there quietly all the time. It certainly has had big accretion events in the past, where material falls on it and then some of that material comes back out as high-energy particles blasted out in the form of a jet,” Finkbeiner said.
“You have to ask where could energy like that come from,” said astronomer Doug Finkbeiner, with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

due to its apparent shape and size and brightness. When I saw the shape, I knew. So I ran into the house and woke my husband. I told him he had to get up, because he would never believe me. He did, and we watched it fly over the house together. I ran into the front yard to continue watching it. I was a little frightened and hid under some trees in case it was watching me. I cannot tell you its size, maybe 1/6 size of the moon and later the size of a large star. It was solid white, almost blinding light. It was either a chevron shape or boomerang shape, similar to a stealth shape, but not a complete triangle. It did not change directions, but instead flew in almost a straight line until it blinked out. It was too bright for my husband to make out the shape of it, but I could see the shape as it flew directly over my head prior to waking him. We were able to watch it together for at least 30 seconds before it disappeared from our sight. I am a military vet and my husband is an executive on an Army base. This was definitely an aircraft with no blinking lights, nor colors. It seemed to be an illuminated craft, as opposed to a craft with outside lights. It was blazing bright.

Will will discuss Andrew Colvin’s resurrected New Saucerian Press.
Andy Colvin is an eclectic artist, filmmaker, writer, musician, and media host who has been called “his generation’s Charles Fort,” the “Sherlock Holmes of synchro-conspiracy,” and “one of America’s great, pain-in-the-butt original thinkers.” Colvin was one of the founders of the “xerox” or “guerilla art” movement now popular in galleries from London to Los Angeles. Colvin was also one of the first “spoken word” artists, and is considered by some to be the world’s foremost authority on the mysterious “Mothman” phenomenon, due to his early experiences with the phenomenon and his intensive audovisual documentation of symbols and synchronicities.
Colvin’s often controversial theories have made him a popular speaker on venues like Coast to Coast AM, Ground Zero, NPR, RAI, BBC, and PBS, and have gained him a dedicated following. In 2011, Colvin co-hosted the popular conspiracy show, “That Was the Month That Wasn’t,” which examined how the media blends stories to subconsciously “manufacture consent” in the public mind. Colvin currently co-hosts two wide-ranging internet radio shows, “The Stench of Truth” and “The Church of Mabus,” which explore various esoteric topics.
Following in the footsteps of Fortean author John A. Keel, Colvin has blazed a 21st Century trail of investigation into mysteries that have influenced mankind for centuries, such as UFOs, creature entities, magic, and the psychology of the human mind. Colvin’s approach is unique in that it blends a background of genuine paranormal experience with decades of research into political science, history, media behavior, and sociology. His understanding of art and symbology has, at times, allowed Colvin to connect dots that previously escaped attention.
In the 1960s, on a West Virginia backroad, Colvin’s neighborhood was hit by a series of mysterious phenomena, such as exotic flying craft, Men in Black, and the intriguing entity now known as “Mothman.” Following these encounters, Colvin found that he could draw, sing, and take pictures, and that he had a photographic memory. He was recognized as a prodigy, and was eventually offered a scholarship to Harvard University. While in college, Colvin broke ground in several then-new disciplines, such as street art, performance art, and “shamanic conceptual” art. In the early 1980s, Colvin made a splash in the New York art world by taking on the persona of “Whiz,” a practitioner of “collaborative art.” This unique approach allowed Colvin to actually work in some manner with several notable artists.
While attending graduate school at the University of Texas at Austin, Colvin helped found U.T.’s celebrated Transmedia Department, as well as the Austin Film Society, an organization now credited with bringing commercial filmmaking to Texas. In 1985, Colvin used his tuition grant money to purchase the only 8mm camcorder then available, becoming the first filmmaker in Austin to shoot in the new format. His ensuing documentation of the lives of local “slackers” influenced the seminal cult hit that defined Generation-X, “Slacker.” (Colvin’s band, “Ed Hall,” appeared in the film and on the soundtrack.)
Following graduate school, Colvin worked on Hollywood films, toured with his experimental troupe, “The Interdimensional Vortex League” (once named America’s “most underground band”), and began making small, ethnographic documentaries about unusual tribes, subcultures, and personalities.
Colvin’s work has been seen or heard in all 50 states, and in several foreign countries. His writing has appeared in various magazines, including Paranoia, The Stranger, Inside the Grassy Knoll, and D’Art, the arts journal for the Church of the Subgenius. Colvin’s unique career has been studded with various mind-blowing, synchronistic events, some of which allowed him to study with, or work with, some of the greatest creative minds of the 20th Century, including Nam June Paik, Dennis Hopper, David Lynch, Robert Anton Wilson, Laurie Anderson, Daniel Johnston, Vito Acconci, Bruce Bickford, Ron English, Frank Kozik, Kal Spelletich, Richard Linklater, Linda Schele, and the Butthole Surfers.
Graun and Reschen underwater towns – Italy These towns in the Italian-Swiss alps had been around since Roman times, but in 1950s plans to make a lake that united others were underway and the towns were flooded. What's left? A 14th century bell tower. Beneath the surface–163 abandoned buildings. If this intrigues you, consider seeing “Deliverance” or “In Dreams,” two movies that involve towns going underwater.
Bimini This area in the Bahamas became famous by people speculating it might be Atlantis. Underwater stones that look like an ancient roadway have caused lots of theory and debate, as well as attracted a lot of divers.
Underwater sculpture Amazingly brilliant and talented artist, Jason deCaires Taylor , combines art and science. He places his sculptures in the water and lets nature breathe them to life.
Underwater caves There are some crazy adventurers who enjoy diving in underwater caves. I cannot think of a more lonely and silent tomb possible, but the sights must be amazing since very few humans have ever seen them. If one is claustrophic, just diving is scary, but diving in a cave–that's the ultimate test!
Sunken ships The ultimate find was the Titanic, but there are still sunken ships with bootie waiting to be found. For divers, they are lonely playgrounds. For those in the Bermuda Triangle, they are unsolved mysteries. For those in the Great Lakes, it's the Edmund Fitzgerald. These are sort of like urban exploration, perhaps we could call it submergian exploration.
Shark diving Yes, people actually voluntarily want to dive with sharks. Places like this one make it possible to try it out. I guess if you want to face your greatest fear, that would do it!
Lake Michigan Stonehenge In 2007, while surveying the bottom of Lake Michigan, they found on sonar groupings of stones in a 40-foot circle and what appeared to be a Mastadon carved into one stone (lived 10,000 years ago). Ironically, it is not at all out of place with the petroglyphs, mounds, and signs of “Originators” in that region.
Cuban Underwater City In 2001, an underwater city was found off the coast of Cuba. It covers 2 square kilometers, and is over 2000 feet down. Interestingly, skeptics say it can't be man made, it would have been 50,000 years ago for it to be sea covered by now. If verified it is man-made, it will verify legends by Mayans and Incans of a civilization on an island that sank.
A Ukraine witness at Izmail reported that a UFO appeared in two photographs taken less than six seconds apart with no sound or light being observed, according to August 1, 2014, testimony in Case 58570 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness stepped outside onto a balcony about 6:31 a.m. on July 14, 2014, where he got the idea to take two photographs of the sky about six seconds apart from each other.

Mysterieus meer verschijnt plots in woestijn Tunesië
Mysterieus meer verschijnt plots in woestijn Tunesië
In de Tunesische woestijn lijkt een mysterieus meer uit het niets te zijn verschenen. Sommigen spreken van een wonder, anderen noemen het een vloek, vertelde journalist Lakhdar Souid aan France 24. Het nieuws verspreidde zich als een lopend vuurtje en honderden mensen zochten sinds de ontdekking verkoeling in het aanvankelijk heldere turquoise water.
Het meer is een aantal weken geleden ontdekt door herders en werd ‘het meer van Gafsa’ gedoopt, naar de gelijknamige stad in het zuiden van Tunesië. Het meer, met een oppervlakte van een hectare, zou 18 meter diep zijn.
Geologen vermoeden dat het grondwater naar de oppervlakte is gekomen als gevolg van een kleine aardbeving. De autoriteiten waarschuwen voor de mogelijke gevaren van het meer. Door de aanwezigheid van fosfaat, dat radioactief afval kan achterlaten, is er een kans dat het water kankerverwekkend is, meldt Tunisia Daily. Daarnaast zou het water vol zitten met algen.
Un miracle à GAFSA de la nature et ses caprices, un lac vient de surgir de la croute terrestre T° de 40° en été
De enige troef die Gafsa heeft, zijn de fosfaatmijnen die Tunesië tot de vijfde producent van de wereld maken. Het grijze goud dient als een belangrijke grondstof voor kunstmest en is een kurk waar de Tunesische economie op drijft.
Experts waarschuwden uit voorzorg dat het water ‘gevaarlijk is en niet geschikt om in te zwemmen’, terwijl wetenschappers watermonsters analyseren. De meeste mensen trekken zich weinig aan van de waarschuwing.
Einstein, Tesla, Hawking and Many more Respected Figures have theorized that it is Possible to Time Travel, Simple in Fact.. Are we already in a World where Time Travel is Happening? Whats with all the Cover ups and Secret Projects? There is a Lot of Military Personnel coming forward regarding Time Travel Recently, Surely all these Story’s are not for the Purpose of Selling Books? Are they?
There are several aspects that can be broken down into the multi-level approach to intelligence analysis. One of the primary prerogatives is sociological impact. We know now from recent revelations that the hysteria created during the Orson Wells broadcast of “War of the Worlds” in 1938 was indeed intended to monitor the public’s response to an ominous announcement of an invasion from a hostile extraterrestrial civilization. Obviously the results were nearly catastrophic. The havoc created by that one radio play regardless of the numerous reminders that it was merely a Fireside Theater radio performance made little difference to a listening audience that had experienced pandemonium.
Manipulating an unsuspecting public
Military analysts as well as sociologists learned very quickly just how easily such a reaction could be provoked from the public at large under the aegis of a sudden disclosure of disturbing proportions. No doubt this became the frame work for the US Air Force’s official approach to the UFO frenzy that was about to descend upon the American public a few years later from 1947 on. The use of military style intelligence strategy during Roswell ranged from disinformation to outright threats of physical violence. Mack Brazel was held in communicado after bringing artifacts from the UFO crash that occurred roughly 75 miles north of Roswell on that week in July 1947. Brazel was even coerced into retracting his statements on the local radio station by military interrogators.
Decades later researchers found that old base operation records at Roswell Air Field had been illegally destroyed once the DOA under the direction of Representative Steven Schiff, who vowed to settle the Roswell UFO mystery once and for all. It is clear that intentions were to scrub the Roswell incident from all sources possible and for years to come in order to marginalize any claims of the crash of an alien disk on Mack Brazel’s ranch on that stormy July evening in 1947. General Roger Ramey’s cover story of a weather balloon was implausible at best, but it served to quell the sensation of the initial Roswell Airfield public information release to the local radio station authorized by Base, Commander Butch Blanchard, who had ordered Lieutenant Walter Haute to deliver it. Thanks to quick thinking and the implementation of counter intelligence techniques the accidental disclosure of an alien crash in the New Mexico desert was conveniently thwarted.
During his tenure with Project Blue Book as a technical advisor, Astro Physicist, Doctor J. Allen Hynek used disinformation tactics under the direction of US Air Force high command to help derail any spectacular UFO sightings that could possibly alarm the public or divulge the existence of extraterrestrial life before the federal government and the Defense Department were ready to do so. Using such mundane explanations as swamp gas and the planet Venus, Hynek was usually able to head off any undue suspicion or detailed investigation by the mainstream media with few exceptions. Thanks to the intended marginalization of Project Blue Book by the Robertson Panel in 1953 another aspect of military intelligence was utilized known as compartmentalization. While Project Blue Book was transformed into a PR front for the Air Force the more serious cases that posed a threat to the policy of secrecy were funneled up the ladder to Wright Patterson AFB for further investigation.
With the occurrence of still further crash events and dramatic UFO sightings to come, the US Air Force, CIA, and FBI along with other intelligence branches of the armed services were refining their approach to mitigation of the flying saucer dilemma. Fast response teams were formed, a policy of harsh intimidation was adopted onsite, and witnesses were discouraged or escorted from areas that were cordoned off as soon as possible. First hand witnesses at crash sites were quickly exposed to interrogation style treatment by military authorities to further intimidate and promote reluctance by the public to persist in reporting what they saw. Even military personnel ordered to respond to crash sites and conduct interviews of witnesses were they themselves subjected to denial, repudiation, aggressive debriefings, and even threats.
Pursuing lights in the forest
As the security personnel at RAF Bentwaters Strategic Air Command Base in Great Britain were soon to find out after several nights of chasing unidentified lights through the nearby Rendlesham Forest, security strike teams were subjected to hostile interrogations as well as mind altering drugs to scrub their memories. Some researchers say that one or more of the security personnel at Bent Waters came in contact with an alien presence after chasing down one ebony colored craft that had a sleek angular design. The security officer was reportedly stunned into unconsciousness while his companion registered missing time during the course of the bizarre event. Others, such as Colonel Halt, reported one alien space craft they had tracked accelerating skyward and splitting into multiple objects that displayed bright colors.
The Bentwaters Incident
Authorities involved such as Strategic Air Command’s intelligence branch and the British Int. Corps as well as the infamous M15 counter intelligence corps, who both used disinformation and denial to try and delegitimize any shred of truth that could have leaked to the public in the aftermath of the incidents. Such staged explanations as a supposed Apollo Mission recovery operation happened to be going on simultaneously as well the misidentification of a nearby lighthouse beam mistaken by Bent Waters security teams were used as questionable explanations for the series of disturbing events that went on just outside the perimeter of a SAC base that was later disclosed to have been harboring a secret nuclear weapons arsenal!
The nuclear attraction
Perhaps as has been the case at Sandia Weapons Storage and the Manzano Underground Facility at nearby Kirkland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico where frequent UFO sightings have occurred, RAF Bentwaters too became a focal point due to the unknown presence of their nuclear stockpile. Yet, ongoing intelligence operations were keen on maintaining secrecy at all costs even if it involved scrubbing the minds of their own base officers in order to conceal the truth. It seems that the intelligence game is just as ruthless as the enemies that it supposedly exists to counter in the event of a cold war or the outbreak of hostilities. Yet, the long legacy of military intelligence and the flying saucer will most likely continue for some time until a sincere effort at disclosure has been unveiled to the public.
In Part IV we will discuss some of the more regrettable actions taken against individuals considered a threat because of their disclosure of UFO evidence and the intelligence tactics used against them.

A tide of reported goblin encounters that have swept the African mainstream alternate media in recent days left me astonished! Strange goblins are poisoning poor lady’s food, turning successful businessman into a bankrupt and even burning houses down in the dearly beloved Africa.
First off, Lydia Motaung from Qalabotjiha in Villiers, Free State, claims that a goblin, an “invisible thing” called the tokoloshe, is poisoning her family to death. Lydia’s sister died this March after she became very ill from eating the food prepared in her house, leading her to believe that a goblin is poisoning her entire yard!
“All the food that comes into my yard is poisoned by an invisible thing. I think it’s a tokoloshe and it wants to kill my whole family.”
“The symptoms are always the same – dry throat, dizziness, terrible fever and severe headache.”
Not only that, the goblin is also causing irritation and domestic fights in the family:
“It’s painful to see family members turning against each other and being unable to help each other when we are sick. We need help to get rid of this thing,” Now, here’s another case, where a Frans Ngakane says his once successful spaza business is close to shutting down due to “a very aggressive mpundulo (zombie)”. It reportedly hisses from the store ceiling and steals his money:
“Once it stole R800 of the week’s taking of R2000. I was angry, thinking my children stole the money, but I discovered it wasn’t them. Sangomas [healers] told me this tokoloshe was sent to make me poor.”
His daughter has left the house and his wife can’t stand him. Business rivals now treat him as a joke. Poor Frans now requests churches to come pray for him. Hope his plight is soon over.
Finally, the news of the era. Seems my earlier blog on Violent Exorcisms: The Modern Day Witch Hunt? was really important after all. Mike Musiiwa, a self-proclaimed Sangoma from the Chief Nyajena area in Masvingo, took advantage of his uncle’s absence from his house, and set his property, worth about a $1,000 one fire! Yes, and in his defence, he said before Masvingo provincial magistrate Sibonginkosi Mkandla:
“I just wanted to destroy his goblins, which I did.”
The chap plead guilty for arson, and is due punishment. – THP
Sonora, CA – 4/3/2014 – unedited: Arriving home at 12:59 am, I startled what I thought was a deer at the bottom of my property. I thought it was a deer because that is what I usually see in the middle of the night. The thing that made me think it was a deer I was looking at were the two dark eyes. To my surprise, the “deer” stood up on two legs instead of scampering off into the brush. It stood up and stared back at me for long 5 seconds or so. It then turned and ran into an invisible doorway and disappeared. It was tall. Approximately 7 feet tall. Beige in color. Two tones of blonde and dirty blonde. The head was huge. Squarish on the top. Skinny. Had a body like the Geiko lizard. Skinny arms. No tapering from shoulders to waist.
If that wasn’t strange enough, after reentering the car after getting out to unlock the gate to my driveway, all of the windows in the car were wide open. There was also a perfect hole punctured through the shirt I was wearing. – MUFON CMS
A Vietnam War veteran is speaking out exclusively to FOX10 News after he claims a burglar broke into his home and smoked the ashes of his deceased wife.
Last week, Citronelle resident and Vietnam Vet, Phillip McMullen, went out of town to stay with some friends. While he was gone, he said the unspeakable happened.
“(The burglar) ransacked my house, tried to break in my gun safe, which, they weren’t able to, they even took my wife’s ashes off my headboard, strewed them around, looked like they tried to smoke some of them or something,” McMullen said, “I guess they figured out this stuff ain’t worth smoking, so they threw it up underneath one of my toolboxes.”
McMullen said he thinks the burglar thought the ashes were drugs, since the ashes were kept in a plastic box, rather than a metal urn.
“Tried it out to see if it was some kind of drugs, and I bet that was a nasty taste when they (did) that though,” said McMullen.
“It makes me want to fight again,” victim says.
McMullen said he and his wife were married for 22 years, and now, he’s hoping the burglar will be caught, so justice can be served.
The burglar was able to break in McMullen’s house through a window, the victim told FOX10. Once inside, the thief stole some 15 items, according to the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, including a generator, chainsaw, knife and fishing rods and reels. McMullen said he was furious when he first saw what happened.
“It’s hard to put in words, it makes me want to fight again, and I don’t like to fight,” said McMullen. “I don’t know if God will forgive them for what they’ve done or not.”
Meanwhile, the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office is continuing the investigation, and is hoping someone will do the right thing and turn the criminal in.
“If someone did something like this, that’s just horrible,” said Lori Myles, with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office, “and if we do prove that he has tampered with this urn, there will be additional charges, such as desecration of a grave.”
Sheriff’s officials say the burglar is still at large, and they need your help to find the thief. If you know anything about this crime. – Fox10TV
Flesh-Eating Bacteria Haunting Florida This Summer
ABC Action News has confirmed that there was a death in Sarasota County from the flesh-eating bacteria. The Sarasota Health Department apologized for not reporting it sooner.
New warnings issued Monday surrounding a bacteria found in the ocean that has already killed several people in Florida.
It is called Vibrio vulnificus, a cousin of the bacterium that causes Cholera and it thrives in warm saltwater. “Since it is naturally found in warm marine waters, people with open wounds can be exposed to Vibrio vulnificus through direct contact with seawater,” the Florida Department of Health said in a statement.
The Florida Department of Health reports 32 people have contracted the bacteria and 10 have died from the strain. Last year, 41 people were infected and 11 died. Florida isn’t the only state to report Vibrio vulnificus infections. Alabama, Louisiana, Texas and Mississippi have also recorded cases.
“It’s quite discouraging because the beach is one of the more popular hobbies in Florida,” said Tracy Brown of West Palm Beach.
Brown, who was enjoying a day at the beach with her daughter, had not really heard about the Vibrio bacterium.
She was stunned to hear someone could become sick by simply entering the water.
“The last thing you want to think about is going to the beach and leaving with something you least expect,” said Brown.
Florida Department of Health experts said anyone with a compromised immune system or anyone with an open cut should not go into the water. Those who do jump into the ocean should wash off before heading home .
“It’s definitely something to take serious, but there are a number of other bacteria, that you could run into,” said Tim O’Connor, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health.
O’Connor said the state is closely monitoring the Vibrio bacteria. So far, he said the situation is not severe.
No cases have yet to be reported in Palm Beach County.
“It’s definitely something we need to be more wary of especially if it’s going to affect us sooner than later, it needs to be known,” said Brown.
The deadly bacteria can also be contracted from consuming raw seafood like oysters.
Steve Gyland, owner of Cod and Cappers Fish Market, is all too familiar with the impact the Vibrio bacteria can have on someone, he survived it.
“It was like you were on fire. Like a burn-blister from a fire. It was weeks before I could walk on that leg,” said Gyland.
On a scuba diving trip to the Bahamas, Gyland came into contact with the bacteria through a blister on his left foot.
Had he waited, Gyland believes it could have been worse.
“You could just watch the red, blistery skin just grow and expand and move up your leg,” said Gyland.
But Gyland also sells an item at his market that the state health department warns is a leading cause of contracting the Vibrio bacteria, raw oysters.
“If we eat raw foods, there’s always a risk, absolutely there’s a risk,” said Gyland.
Gyland said he posts warning all over his store and suggests people who are worried should buy oysters from cooler climates to the north.
The state health department said it is monitoring the situation and is telling consumers to cook their oysters before eating the shellfish. – ABC Action News
The following report concerns alien contact and a possible MIB encounter. It was submitted to NUFORC and occurred near Tonopah, Arizona on July 1, 2009 at approx. 10:30 PM. The area is in western Maricopa County, Arizona, approximately 50 miles west of downtown Phoenix off Interstate 10. The community of Tonopah is near the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, the largest nuclear power plant in the country. There have been considerable UFO/alien accounts from this general area including rumors that a deep underground facility is nearby:
While in the desert near the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant, the main witness and some friends saw a very large triangle shaped UFO. They were driving down a dirt road and saw a bright flashing light. They had seen objects in the area before and their intentions were to look for UFO’s. According to the witnesses, people that live in this area have been chased in their cars and seen objects on a regular basis. They went off the road behind some mountains, and no sooner had they come around the mountain they saw the large flashing light. All of them were scared but, at the same time, curious.
The main witness friend’s girlfriend was crying and telling them to turn around; they got within 2 to 300 yards from the light. It was the size of three football fields, triangular in shape, and had windows around it. It was about 3 stories tall, and about 30 feet off the ground, they flashed their lights and it flashed back, in the same sequence of flashes. The main witness and his friend, James, got out of the car and walked closer. The closer they got, the better they could make out what was standing in the windows. They could see small big headed aliens, and then 7 to 9 foot tall aliens, they based this on the size of the windows. Some of the windows they could see through, the other windows were dark, but then the dark windows, cleared up one by one, and as they went clear more and more aliens appeared on the windows. James was supposedly videotaping the whole time. The main witness was terrified but excited at the same time.
They walked closer and had to stop because the heat coming from the craft was so intense. The craft hovered and then landed. A large panel at the bottom of the craft opened and two aliens proceeded to walk out. This absolutely terrified the witnesses, but they couldn’t move or talk. The main witness remembers trying to scream and run but they couldn’t move or talk. Two others were in the car honking the horn, and screaming for them to come back, but they couldn’t respond or move.
The aliens walked up to within 20 feet of them. One of them was very thin and tall, about 8-9 feet, the other one was about 3-4 feet tall. The witnesses stood there in amazement, shocked because they couldn’t move or speak. Then calmness came over them and the aliens began speaking to them telepathically, they were saying not to be scared that they were not going to harm them. This “conversation” went on between the 4 of them for 15-20 minutes. They said they were here to help us, so that we would not destroy our planet, and that there was a horrible event coming soon, that it had to be stopped. One of the witnesses asked if it was something like ‘9/11’ and they said that it was bigger and that it would come from the Middle East. The main witness then thought to himself that he had been in this situation before and the tall alien heard his thoughts and repeated his name and said that yes, he had been visited before when he was 6 years old in Deming, New Mexico. He had been in the desert exploring and they had talked to him then. He had blocked that out, but it all suddenly came back, they said they knew they were coming and wanted them to warn people about global warming and what was to come if they didn’t take start taking care of our planet. Visions of disaster then entered their heads, as if to show them what was to come.
The taller alien then walked closer, and held his hand. He was no longer scared, neither was his friend, James. They said that they would see them again soon and to warn people about ‘saving our planet’. Supposedly James was recording the whole time. The aliens then returned to the craft and it was gone in a split second. When the craft left they both felt weak, but managed to make their way back to the car, when they got there the occupants of the car, Heather and Jamie, were not crying anymore they just hugged the witnesses. For a minute the car would not start and suddenly it just turned on by itself. As they started to drive away three military helicopters appeared and began shining their lights on the witnesses. Then two military Hummers showed up and chased the witnesses. They tried to avoid the Hummers but were told over a speaker to pull over or they would be forced to shoot at them. They pulled over and military personnel surrounded their vehicle. Two men dressed in black opened the door and asked them to get out. One of them looked familiar to the main witness. He asked the witnesses to get out and both questioned them, while the military personnel searched the car. They asked them what they had seen, how long they had been there and if they had had any contact with the alien ship. One of the soldiers then found the video camera. The men in black reviewed it and told the witnesses they were not to speak of this, they then confiscated the camera and took the main witness with them. The other 3 witnesses asked where they were going and they told them not to worry about it. He left with them and they questioned him further. He kept staring at one of the men since he looked familiar. They then dropped him off on the I-10 highway near Tonopah Joe’s restaurant. There he was later picked up by his friends.

In the late Eighties and throughout the Nineties, alien abductions were at the heart of ufology. How did what might be regarded as a subset of ufology become its central meme? Abductions (irrespective of whether one believes they take place in a literal sense) could arguably be regarded as an evolution of the contactee phenomenon, and for those who believe UFOs are extraterrestrial spacecraft, it’s only logical that one should look beyond the vehicles and focus on the nature and agenda of the occupants. John Keel’s 1967 article “Never Mind the Saucer! Did You See the Guys Who Were Driving?” articulates this point perfectly, but it wasn’t until the publication of “Missing Time” (1981), “Intruders” (1987) and “Communion” (1987) that Keel’s question became the question most asked in the UFO community.
Of the three books mentioned, Whitley Strieber’s “Communion” did most to move alien abductions out of the ufological fringe and onto centre stage, and from there, into the mainstream public awareness. From there, things snowballed. Abduction plotlines were featured in “The X-Files” and a wide range of other TV shows and movies, while the image on the front cover of “Communion” became embedded in public consciousness, further boosted by the so-called alien autopsy film in 1995. In 2002 Steven Spielberg’s TV mini-series “Taken” illustrated that abductions were still big news and big business.
All this time, abductions were the central focus for much of the UFO community, and the three charismatic figures of Budd Hopkins, David Jacobs and John Mack were at the heart of things. While the centre of gravity was America, interest was global. My own book on the alien abduction mystery, “The Uninvited”, got to number seven in the UK hardback non-fiction chart, while the US mass-market paperback edition, published by Dell, was also a best-seller, clearly showing not only that abductions were the dominant force in ufology, but also that the subject had broken out into mainstream media and public awareness.
Now let’s fast forward to 2014. One hears comparatively little about alien abductions, even within the UFO community, where the main current areas of interest are government cover-ups, ‘Disclosure’, secret space program/‘breakaway civilization’, the Rendlesham Forest incident, and – perhaps most prominently of all – the resurgence of the ancient astronaut/ancient aliens hypothesis. What’s going on? There are a number of theories and it’s worth running through them.
At the extreme end of the belief spectrum, for those who think abductions take place in a literal, physical way, as many abductees claim, there’s the suggestion that the alien agenda is coming to its climax. Such people regard abductions as an extraterrestrial project, usually characterized as a human/alien hybridization program. If abductions have declined, or stopped altogether, does this not suggest that the program is coming to an end, or has finished? If this is the case, what happens next? Is some dramatic development just around the corner? It’s certainly food for thought.
There are, of course, some more prosaic possibilities. As a journalist and broadcaster, I know that interest in just about everything is cyclic. There comes a time when saturation point is reached and people lose interest, not least because pretty much everything there is to say has already been said. Whether this is reflected in, or driven by the media is open to debate, but editors and producers looking at abductions these days are inclined to say things like “that’s a bit passé”, or “this has all been done to death”. If this is the case, perhaps interest will return, just as interest in the ancient astronaut theory has returned. The TV show “Ancient Aliens” may have driven this resurgence, but it only worked because a new generation of people were genuinely interested in ideas that had been popularized back in the Seventies by authors such as Erich von Däniken.
What other factors could explain the lack of coverage and (apparent) lack of interest in abductions? One cannot overstate the influence of individuals when it comes to driving the agenda in a subject, whether they do so deliberately or not. Simply put, Budd Hopkins, David Jacobs and John Mack played a huge role in putting abductions centre stage within ufology, and now that Hopkins and Mack are both dead, the greater part of that impetus is gone. This is in no way meant to disparage the work of other ufologists and abductees, or downplay the continuing influence of writers such as Whitley Strieber, but there’s no getting away from the fact that the deaths of Hopkins and Mack dealt a hefty blow to abduction research.
There have been other assaults on the validity of abductions and the credibility of both abduction researchers and abductees. The debate over whether regression hypnosis can recover hidden memories, distort existing ones or even implant false ones was the first shot across the bows. Concerns about using regression hypnosis on abductees segued into wider concerns about the propriety of ufologists dealing with abductees. This was essentially a therapist/patient relationship in a situation where some of the people claiming abduction experiences (real or not) were extremely vulnerable. Were abduction researchers suitably qualified or otherwise equipped to deal with such people in a professional and ethical way? The allegations made by “Emma Woods” against David Jacobs brought that debate into focus, as did the criticisms made by filmmaker Carol Rainey regarding her former husband, Budd Hopkins. The recent arrest of self-described abductee Stan Romanek on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography may turn out to be the final nail in the coffin.
Alien abduction may be down, but it isn’t altogether out. Travis Walton remains popular on the conference circuit and hopes to see a remake of “Fire in the Sky”. Researchers such as Yvonne Smith continue to fly the flag for the subject, while this month’s “Contact in the Desert” conference in Joshua Tree has a panel discussion on the “contact experience”. This latter point is particularly noteworthy, because it seems that we’ve gone from contactees to abductees and now back to contactees – the more neutral term “experiencers” is sometimes used, but that’s another story.
In all of this, here’s the key question about the apparent rise and fall of alien abductions: does it tell us something about the true nature of the UFO phenomenon, or does it tell us just as much – and maybe even more – about ufology and ufologists?
Nick Pope is a former employee of the UK Ministry of Defense. From 1991 to 1994 he ran the British Government's UFO project and has recently been involved in a five-year initiative to declassify and release the entire archive of these UFO files. Nick Pope held a number of other fascinating posts in the course of his 21-year government career, which culminated in his serving as an acting Deputy Director in the Directorate of Defense Security. He now works as a broadcaster and journalist, covering subjects including space, fringe science, defense and intelligence. Nick Pope’s latest book, Encounter in Rendlesham Forest, co-written with John Burroughs and Jim Penniston, was published by Thomas Dunne Books on 15th April and is available via Amazon and all good bookstores.
Recent programs on the History Channel and elsewhere on cable television have helped popularize the concept that extraterrestrials have been visiting Earth since time immemorial and have been responsible for many of the advancements of human civilization. Once the mainstay of writers such as Erich von Daniken, Brinsley Le Poer Trench and W.R. Drake, the concept has since inspired big budget movie epics and television shows like “Ancient Aliens” and, more recently, “In Search Of Aliens,” hosted by the “wild-haired” Giorgios Tsoukalos.
Steven Spielberg first burned images of the Ark of the Covenant into our collective imagination when his 1981 mega-hit “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was unleashed upon the public. The movie popularized the mysterious Ark for a more secular audience as Harrison Ford found himself in conflict with Nazi archaeologists who sought to conquer the world by using the supernatural powers of the Ark as a terrorist weapon.
Recently, journalist Timothy Beckley and his always prolific publishing house Inner Light – Global Communications set out to explore the mysteries of the Ark and other super-weapons of antiquity to determine if the “sky gods” were behind the development of these highly advanced implements of destruction – or if humankind
had somehow been able to conjure them up on their own.
Many questions arose, which Beckley and crew attempted to sort out during the course of their dissertation, such as:
When God instructed Moses and the Israelites to construct the Ark of the Covenant, could they have understood the awesome, death-dealing technology it contained?
Did ancient India, like the Old Testament Jews, possess weapons of mass destruction? The new book contends that nuclear weapons or a method of kinetic bombardment were a standard component of the arsenal of people living many thousands of years ago.
Read about weapons that appear on the surface to be rather commonplace, such as a simple sword or bow and arrow, but which are in fact supernaturally transformed by the gods into miraculous instruments of combat.
Does archeological evidence exist today that proves nuclear war took place in ancient times, negating our belief that atomic weapons did not exist until the 20th century? Was space travel another forgotten achievement of a people long ago consumed by the passing millennia? Did they leave spaceports behind as a sign of the technological prowess that helped them reach the stars?
In his introduction to the newly released book from Global Communications, “The Ark of the Covenant and Other Secret Weapons of the Ancients,” editor and author Timothy Green Beckley writes: “The Ark of the Covenant has always been an object of great wonderment. Biblical scholars have debated its uses for years, while the public fantasizes about its powers. Moviemakers have attempted to tell the story of this gleaming gold artifact in epic fictionalized form. Made to be a receptacle in which the Ten Commandments given Moses could be safeguarded, the Ark also had the power to destroy the enemies of the Israelites.”
Beckley goes on to explain that he met researcher and writer David Medina in the 1970s when Beckley was visiting the UK to speak before the House of Lords UFO group. Medina presented Beckley with his privately printed manuscript on the Ark and asked Beckley’s help in giving it wider distribution. Beckley subsequently published Medina’s book and was pleased with thelimited but positive reception it received.
Recently, Beckley decided to publish a new edition, this time with additional chapters written by Beckley’s usual robust stable of writers. The new book focuses not just on the Ark of the Covenant but also examines other high-tech weapons created by what we have been taught are vastly more primitive societies. Thus the “Other Secret Weapons of the Ancients” part of the new book’s title.
THE ARK AND ITS ENIGMATIC CAPABILITIES
The book opens with the reprint of David Medina’s original text. Medina gives an account of the building of the Ark of the Covenant, based on verses from the 25th chapter of the Book of Exodus, as well as describing other elements that went along with it, such as the tent specifically constructed to house the Ark.
It fell to Moses’ brother Aaron, in his role as high priest, to tend to various ceremonies and rituals related to the Ark. Aaron and his sons, who often assisted their father with his priestly duties, were required to wear special clothing while in the Ark’s presence. It has long been speculated, by Medina and numerous other writers before and since, that the special clothing was not a simple matter of priestly ceremonial garb but was instead specifically intended to protect Aaron and his sons from high levels of radiation. Because of that danger, no one else was permitted near the Ark. There are incidents recorded in the Bible in which disobedient Israelites ventured close to the Ark anyway and were subsequently struck dead by the device or died lingering deaths from radiation sickness.
It is also theorized that the Ark could generate high voltage electricity and serve as a two-way radio to the heavens. How did some pieces of acacia wood, some gold overlay and a few other components readily available to the Israelites, who were essentially wandering nomads in the desert, accomplish this technological wonder? That is part of the fascination of Medina’s analysis of the Ark of the Covenant and the details are better left for those reading the Global Communications book to discover for themselves.
THE UFOS OF INDIA AND THEIR DEADLY PAYLOAD
But the formidable Ark was not the only high-tech weapon of the ancient world. As part of Beckley’s aforementioned stable of writers, I contributed a chapter to the new book on the weapons of ancient India. A great deal of the mythology of ancient India is taken up with a form of flying craft called a “vimana,” whose origin is unclear. Some Sanskrit writings say the vimanas were manmade but available to only a rich and elite part of the population. Other writings say the vimanas belonged to the gods and served to house ascended holy ones in luxury dwellings in the sky.
But whatever that mystery may involve, the relevance to the new book lies in the fact that the vimanas were used to deliver and deploy super-weapons similar to our nuclear missiles. In the midst of a conflict between two ancient royal families, called the Kuruhshetra War, a projectile called a “Brahmastra” was launched from a vimana flying overhead. According to the scripture called the “Mahabharata,” the missile, also called the “Iron Thunderbolt,” produced “an incandescent column of smoke and fire, as brilliant as a thousand suns,” and reduced the enemy combatants to ashes. “The corpses were so burned as to be unrecognizable. The hair and nails fell out; pottery broke without cause; and the birds turned white. After a few hours, all foodstuffs were infected.”
All of which is familiar to modern readers as the consequences of the radiation-saturated aftermath of a nuclear blast. As an eerie addendum, 20th century archeologists uncovered evidence that certain cities in the Indus Valley region had been completely destroyed, with people lying dead in the streets. Some kind of “sudden doom” had decimated these cities, killing the entire population and leaving no survivors to bury the dead.
LETHAL FORCE WITHOUT THE MESSY CONSEQUENCES
There is little disagreement among scholars of the subject that some kind of death-dealing technology was available to the ancients that is easily comparable to nuclear weaponry. But author Olav Phillips begs to differ about all that. While he refers to the same passages of the Mahabharata as most scholars do, Phillips argues that the weapons in question may not have been nuclear.
The “Iron Thunderbolt” of the Kuruhshetra War may instead have been an example of “kinetic bombardment,” Phillips contends, or the use of super-dense chunks of material dropped at terminal velocity from orbit or high altitude. Kinetic bombardment would produce the same effects as a small-scale nuclear device minus the radiation. Those effects would include an enormous fireball and a tremendous shockwave that would radiate outwards from the impact site. Phillips believes this explains the decimated cities discovered by archeologists in the Indus Valley.
“The superheated shockwave and concussive force wall,” Phillips writes, “would explain the collapse of structures and the scorching.”
Phillips goes on to say that kinetic weapons are easy to target since their firing angle can be computed from orbit. He says modern weapons developers are working on something called “Project Thor” or the “Rods From God,” a system which hurls telephone pole-sized tungsten rods from orbit for the purpose of targeted, non-nuclear strikes.
Military planners have been working on the idea since the 1950s, and there exists a 2003 US Air Force report suggesting that a tungsten cylinder six meters long impacting at Mach 10 has the equivalent kinetic energy of 11.5 tons of TNT. The idea is to deploy a lethal weapon with mass destructive force that does not have a long lasting global environmental impact. Phillips believes the combatants in the Mahabharata must have reached a similar conclusion, that a large-scale nuclear exchange would permanently destroy the very land they seek to possess, so they too opted for a devastating weapon that would not cause long-term ecological damage.
SWORDS WITH A MAGICAL EDGE
Publisher Timothy Green Beckley takes up the subject of magical swords, swords that were not mere steel attached to a hilt but were instead handed down by the gods to aid mortals in combat. One finds this idea in numerous Greek myths, such as when Perseus was given a sword by the gods to slay the monster Medusa, she who had hair made of snakes and scales invincible to human-made weapons.
Also included is a brief retelling of the legend of King Arthur’s sword “Excalibur” and how it blinded his opponents with its brightness. Meanwhile, the scabbard that stored Excalibur had healing powers and would prevent its bearer from bleeding to death. Excalibur can only be brandished for good purposes or it is useless. It prevents those who wield it from lying and inspires courage in all who follow in its path.
Well-known writers Brad Steiger and Tim R. Swartz provide chapters for “The Ark of the Covenant and Other Secret Weapons of the Ancients” as well. Steiger talks about the archeological evidence found throughout the world for prehistoric nuclear war while Swartz declares that the ancients may have achieved space travel and bolsters that contention with still more archeological evidence.
“The Ark of the Covenant and Other Secret Weapons of the Ancients” is profusely illustrated, thanks mainly to the efforts of writer and graphic designer William Kern, who packs the pages with Biblical art relevant to the story of the Ark as well as paintings depicting the flying craft and weaponry of Indian mythology. The book is an excellent and original approach to the subject of Ancient Astronauts and their technological revelations to early mankind that will have you shaking your head in wonderment even as you shudder at the destructive force we are capable of with a little help from above.
The Ark of the Covenant and Other Secret Weapons of the Ancients
By David Medina, Timothy Green Beckley, Sean Casteel, Olav Phillips, Brad Steiger and Tim R. Swartz
Nasa is a major player in space science, so when a team from the agency this week presents evidence that "impossible" microwave thrusters seem to work, something strange is definitely going on. Either the results are completely wrong, or Nasa has confirmed a major breakthrough in space propulsion.
British scientist Roger Shawyer has been trying to interest people in his EmDrive for some years through his company SPR Ltd. Shawyer claims the EmDrive converts electric power into thrust, without the need for any propellant by bouncing microwaves around in a closed container. He has built a number of demonstration systems, but critics reject his relativity-based theory and insist that, according to the law of conservation of momentum, it cannot work.
According to good scientific practice, an independent third party needed to replicate Shawyer's results. As Wired.co.uk reported, this happened last year when a Chinese team built its own EmDrive and confirmed that it produced 720 mN (about 72 grams) of thrust, enough for a practical satellite thruster. Such a thruster could be powered by solar electricity, eliminating the need for the supply of propellant that occupies up to half the launch mass of many satellites. The Chinese work attracted little attention; it seems that nobody in the West believed in it.
However, a US scientist, Guido Fetta, has built his own propellant-less microwave thruster, and managed to persuade Nasa to test it out. The test results were presented on July 30 at the 50th Joint Propulsion Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. Astonishingly enough, they are positive.
The Nasa team based at the Johnson Space Centre gave its paper the title "Anomalous Thrust Production from an RF [radio frequency] Test Device Measured on a Low-Thrust Torsion Pendulum". The five researchers spent six days setting up test equipment followed by two days of experiments with various configurations. These tests included using a "null drive" similar to the live version but modified so it would not work, and using a device which would produce the same load on the apparatus to establish whether the effect might be produced by some effect unrelated to the actual drive. They also turned the drive around the other way to check whether that had any effect.

'Onmogelijke' aandrijving voor ruimteschepen succesvol getest door NASA
‘Onmogelijke’ aandrijving voor ruimteschepen succesvol getest door NASA
De Britse wetenschapper Roger Shawyer probeert mensen al enige jaren warm te maken voor zijn EmDrive, die stuwkracht genereert door microgolven in een afgesloten ruimte op elkaar te laten botsen. Volgens critici kan zijn systeem niet werken omdat het in strijd is met de Wet van behoud van impulsmoment.
Chinese wetenschappers bouwden afgelopen jaar een eigen EmDrive en bevestigden dat het apparaat werkt. Het zou volgens het team kunnen fungeren als aandrijving voor satellieten. Er was weinig aandacht voor de resultaten en het leek alsof niemand in het Westen het kon geloven.
De Amerikaan Guido Fetta wist NASA te overtuigen zijn apparaat te testen. De testresultaten zijn deze week gepresenteerd tijdens een bijeenkomst in Cleveland in de staat Ohio. Volgens NASA werkt het systeem. Een team van het Johnson Space Center deed zes dagen lang experimenten met de microgolf-aandrijving.
In de jaren negentig deed NASA experimenten met een antizwaartekracht-apparaat, dat bestond uit roterende supergeleidende schijven. De resultaten waren positief, tot onderzoekers ontdekten dat het apparaat de meetinstrumenten beïnvloedde. Sindsdien hebben wetenschappers veel geleerd.
De aandrijving lijkt te werken door invloed uit te oefenen op de spookachtige wolk van deeltjes en antideeltjes in de lege ruimte. Het team van NASA wilde niet ingaan op de werking van de zogeheten kwantumvacuüm plasma-aandrijving en deed enkel verslag van de onderzoeksresultaten.
De uitvinder van het apparaat, Guido Fetta, noemt het de ‘Cannae Drive’, naar de Slag bij Cannae waarbij de Carthaagse veldheer Hannibal op 2 augustus 216 voor Christus de Romeinse legioenen een verpletterende nederlaag toebracht. Fetta heeft sceptici jarenlang geprobeerd te overtuigen eens naar zijn systeem te kijken. Dat lijkt nu eindelijk te zijn gelukt.
Met microgolf-aandrijving worden satellieten en ruimtestations een stuk goedkoper en gaan ze veel langer mee. En astronauten zouden in enkele weken in plaats van maanden naar Mars kunnen reizen.
Archaeologists in Mexico have uncovered 25 “alien”-looking human skulls with in a cemetery in the northwest state of Sonora, they said today.
Some of the skulls showed “deformities,” said Cristina Garcia Moreno, who worked on the excavation project with Arizona State University, which analyzed the bones. The bones are about 1,000 years old, dating from 945 A.D. to 1308 A.D.
“This was an Hispanic cemetery with 25 skulls, and 13 of them have deformed heads,” Moreno told ABC News today. “We don’t know why this population specifically deformed their heads."
Moreno said that scientists had found skulls in other parts of Mexico, including Guasave, south of Sonora that also showed similar deformities in certain groups of people. Scientists believe they put beams of wood on the front and back of individuals’ heads and wrapped the wood with bands to exert pressure on the skull, Moreno said.
“We know that in some parts of Mexico, people deformed their heads because they wanted to distinguish important people or they wanted to distinguish people from one group from another,” she said.
Moreno said that skulls like this had never before been found in Sonora, and that many of the skeletons in the cemetery were those of children.

ALL sighting reports received by CMS are already filled in by the witness, saving you and your investigators time. Each report is automatically sent to YOU, the State Director and Assistant State Director, for you to assign someone to follow-up and complete the report.
If a UFO sighting comes in over the phone, or by e-mail, and you want to enter it yourself, simply go to CMS at http://mufoncms.com (once logged in) and click on "ADD CASE" in the upper right hand corner of the screen. This gives you a blank sghting reporting form that you can fill out while the witness is on the phone. Once the report is filled out be sure to click "SAVE" and you will have easily added your NEW report to CMS.
Other interesting data points in CMS during July 2014 are the shape of the UFOs reported which were as follows;
Shape of Object

as well as the distance from the observer;

To review the CMS data yourself go to www.mufon.com and click on "UFO Case Files" to 1.) Easily look at the Last 20 Sightings, or 2.) Do a customized search of the CMS database by date and/or location, or 3.) Logon to CMS for even more detailed UFO sighting information about your State and the World.
I hope you are enjoying our new internet based Sighting and Reporting System. For questions regarding its use please refer to the User Guide available on your CMS main menu screen. Please send your questions and/or suggestions to Jan Harzan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
