Black UFO caught over Mount Washington


On July 26, 2016, a witness has caught black UFO over Mount Washington Summit, in New Hampshire, USA. He has published his pictures on MUFON website.

Witness statement:

I noticed the object in the background of two photos that were taken of me and my daughter and her friend on the top of Mount Washington when I zoomed in on them.Both photos were taken by another person at the summit. Both photos were taken no more than 5 seconds apart.

He invests lotto winnings into iIlegal crystal meth business


Ronnie Music Jr., 45, is facing life in prison after pleading guilty to investing part of his lottery winnings into a crystal methamphetamine drug ring. In 2015, Music had won $3 million in a Georgia scratch-off lottery game. You know what they say about pushing your luck. Don’t!

Of all the things he could have done with his $3 million dollar lotto prize, Ronnie Music Jr., of Waycross, Georgia, decided to invest part of it in a drug business. Evidence presented in the case against him revealed that he had worked with a criminal group to gain access to high quantities of methamphetamine and distribute it all throughout Georgia. His co-conspirators were caught trying to sell approximately 11 pounds of meth, worth more than $500,000 on the streets, and during the investigation Music was identified as the supplier. At his home base in Ware County agents found over $1 million worth of methamphetamine, several firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition and $600,000 in cash.

After pleading guilty to using his lotto winnings to fund his drug business, prosecutors agreed to drop the remaining charges in a federal indictment and to recommend a sentence of no more than 25 years. However, if he is found to be a career criminal, the government could still seek penalties of at least 35 years or even life in prison. “Defendant Music decided to test his luck by sinking millions of dollars of lottery winnings into the purchase and sale of crystal meth,” United States Attorney Ed Tarver said in a press release. “As a result of his unsound investment strategy, Music now faces decades in a federal prison.

Prior to his recent arrest, Music had spent several stints in jail. In 2003 he was found guilty of a couple of felonies, possession of a prohibited weapon and making terrorist threats. In 2007 he was jailed again for possession of a firearm, and a third time in 2009 for running a meth lab and possession of methamphetamine with the intention to distribute. In 2015, fortune smiled on him as he won $3 million in a scratch off lottery game. “I buy tickets every once in awhile,” he said at the time. “I couldn’t believe it, and I still don’t believe it yet.

When announcing Ronnie Music Jr.’s good fortune in February 2015, Georgia Lottery officials mentioned that he and his wife were planing to “save a portion of the winnings”. They never said what he planned to do with the rest of it. I guess now we know…

Fountain of youth sex hormone discovered by scientists


Researchers in the US and Brazil have discovered an anti-aging secret that lies in a sex hormone.

Sex hormones can stimulate production of telomerase, an enzyme naturally found in the human organism, new research shows. The team used a synthetic sex hormone to stimulate the production of a naturally occurring enzyme called telomerase that is capable of reversing aging and has been nickednamed a possible "cellular elixir of youth."

The study was performed by Brazilian researchers in collaboration with colleagues at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the US. Among the scientists involved was Rodrigo Calado, a professor at the University of São Paulo's Ribeirão Preto Medical School (FMRP-USP) and a member of the Center for Cell-Based Therapy (CTC), one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs), supported by FAPESP.

In an embryo, where tissue is still in the formative stage, telomerase is expressed by practically every cell. After this period, only cells that are constantly dividing, such as blood-forming stem cells, which can differentiate into a variety of specialized cells, continue to produce telomerase.

"One of the processes associated with aging is progressive shortening of telomeres, DNA-protecting structures at the ends of chromosomes, like the plastic tips on shoelaces," Calado said.

"Each time a cell divides, its telomeres get shorter. Eventually, the cell can't replicate anymore and dies or becomes senescent. However, telomerase can keep the length of telomeres intact, even after cell division."

Calado added that some cells avoid aging by using telomerase to lengthen their telomeres through the addition of DNA sequences, thereby maintaining their capacity to multiply and "stay young."

"In a healthy adult, telomere length varies from 7,000 to 9,000 base pairs on average. A normal person's telomeres lose 50 to 60 base pairs per year, but a patient with telomerase deficiency can lose between 100 and 300 base pairs per year," said Professor Rodrigo Calado.

Telomerase deficiency may cause some blood-related diseases, such as aplastic anemia. In the recent study, scientists treated 27 patients having telomere diseases with a steroid called danazol, a synthetic male hormone, leading to telomere elongation.

"In the patients who received danazol, telomere length increased by 386 base pairs on average over two years," Calado said.

The research was based on previous findings that showed that androgens, which are converted into estrogens in humans, bind to female hormone receptors in the telomerase gene promoter region, stimulating expression of the enzyme in cells.

"The latest study was designed to find out whether the effect we'd observed in the lab also occurred in humans, and the results indicate that it does," the professor said.

The results of which were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
