Egg-shaped UFO caught over Alexandria, VA


On March 26, 2016, a silver oval-shaped UFO is appeared just over the city of Alexandria (Virginia). The witness has taken a photo of this strange thing.

Witness report:

On Saturday March 26, 2016- I was exiting the Huntington Metro garage on the Huntington Ave side (lower Huntington Metro) when coming down the ramp across from Fenwick Dr. when I glanced up and saw a strange silver/grey object hovering off in the distance seemingly over the area of the highway/Eisenhower ave/ Duke st. I could not tell its exact size but it was large and stationary ( it did not lower or raised as I watched it). I noticed that the sky was partly cloudy but the top of the object was reflecting sunlight or radiated its own light. As I was watching the item, a couple came up to me and said that they had first spotted the object form the metro train as they came into Eisenhower station. The wife stated that her husband did not see any type of tether and ask me did I see one. I said I did not as we watched it hover, then spin on its axis and I saw the attachment just under its "nose". It was slightly curve and reddish in color. I took out my cell phone and snap off a couple of pictures. I then quickly cross Huntington ave and made my way towards Huntington Park, which took me know more than 5 minutes. I lost sight of the object so I crossed the length of the park still not spotting it. I made my way to the banks of Camron Run/ Huntington Creek, looked and saw nothing. I stood there for about 10 minutes before I left and went on my way. The pictures are nice and clear but the object to far away for the phone to get a better picture. Blow-up you can see the attachment better.

Strange UFO snapped over Brooklyn, New York


On August 29, 2015, in daylight, a man nicknamed Alex has photographed a luminous UFO flying over the borough of Brooklyn (in New-York). What is it?

Witness statement:

I noticed a bright star-like object in the sky in daylight that gave off a flashing / pulsating phenomena of bright colors. I was only able to see the object for about 7-10 seconds until it disappeared. For reference, the object was about 30,000-40,000 feet in the air.

I attached 4 images of the same object: 2 original, and 2 zoomed in versions. I tried to take a 3rd picture of the object, but it vanished. I took these photos on a Samsung Galaxy 21x zoom.

If you could please help explain what object this is, I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks,
Alex

Munching Unicorn may have walked the Earth with humans


The discovery of a skull belonging to an extinct creature known as the Siberian unicorn suggests it shared the Earth with our ancestors and questions techniques used by scientists to date prehistoric remains of mammals.

The prehistoric creature called Elasmotherium sibiricum, or Siberian rhinoceros — or unicorn — was thought to have vanished from the face of the earth 350,000 years ago. However, the discovery of a well-preserved skull in Kazakhstan has left scientists thinking that the Siberian unicorn may have been around at the same time as prehistoric humans, which was 29,000 years ago.

"I wasn't expecting these results," Andrei Shpansky from Tomsk State University told Sputnik.

Shpansky told Sputnik that the discovery of the skull was "unique" and after researching the shape and structure of the bones, a sample was sent to his colleagues at Queen's University in Belfast, where they used carbon dating methods to determine the creature's age. The research was published in the American Journal of Applied Science.

"In my professional experience, Elasmotherium sibiricum [Siberian rhinoceros] have been extinct for around 350,000 years. However, to my surprise, I received a different date from my colleagues in Northern Ireland — 29,000 years."

"Right now, the data's very new," Shpansky said, suggesting it poses more questions than answers.

"What do these findings mean? Either the Siberian rhino lived at the same time as prehistoric humans, or there may have been problems with the radiocarbon dating method and more research needs to be done to back or debunk the findings," Shpansky asks.

Shpansky suggests that because of the length in time between when it was thought the Siberian unicorn became extinct — and the data extracted from the skull discovered in Kazakhstan — scientists and archaeologists might need to use a better method other than carbon dating to determine the remains of mammals that disappeared between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago.

The Siberian unicorns were likely to be vegetarians and could weigh up to four tons, standing two meters tall and almost five meters long.

The newly discovered data from the skull could lead to further insights into the migration patterns of mammals in Western Siberia.

Black triangular-shaped UFO filmed in Massachusetts



On March 29, 2016, during the night, a witness has filmed a triangular-shaped UFO flying slowly in the sky somewhere in the state of Massachusetts. This object emitted three white lights at each end.

Witness statement:

Driving towards the Village Commons in South Hadley, my friend and I could see two bright lights in the sky that kind of looked like head lights. They were just sitting in the same spot for a very long time. We could see them about a half a mile away. As we got towards the center of the village commons, it looked as though the ufo was now over us. The two lights that we had previously seen turned into three very bright lights. As we were freaking out I had climbed into the backseat of the car and stuck my head out the window. I could see the three very bright lights in a triangle shape and as I was looking at them, I could make out the circular shape of the craft. It looked very low and gigantic. Not long after it just sat above us and hovered, it started to move very fast and get far away. At this point, I needed to head home but my friend who witnessed it with me, continued to search for it after I left. She found it again on 202 in South Hadley and followed it all the way to Memorial Drive in Chicopee. She called me freaking out saying how close she was to it and that she was going to pul over to try and capture a picture. As soon as she parked, she said she was underneath it like we were before, and then the phone started to act up. I started to lose her and eventually our call dropped. She called me back freaking out telling me she captured pictures and a video. I strongly believe that I saw a ufo tonight. You can watch the video and decide for yourself whether or not you believe my story.

Jordan accuses Turkey of preparing the jihad in Europe


On the 11th January 2016, king Abdallah of Jordan took part in a Washington meeting with the members of three senatorial commissions (Intelligence, Foreign Affairs and Army).

According to David Hearst - ex-journalist for the Scotsman, then the Guardian, and current chief editor of the Middle East Eye – who had been able to consult the minutes of the meetings, the king apparently accused President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of having organised the wave of migrants towards Europe, and to have deliberately included jihadists in their number.

Concerning Syria, the king apparently affirmed that Turkey is working for a solution based on religious belief, which goes against the efforts of Jordan.

The king apparently confirmed the responsibility of Turkey in the traffic of oil stolen by Daesh. Noting that the Turkish Army is training the Somali army, the king apparently accused Turkey of controlling the jihadist groups not only in Syria and Iraq, but also in Libya and Somalia.

Finally, the king apparently questioned the European promise [now implemented by the Summit of the 17th and 18th March] to pay 3 billion Euros to Turkey to help it deal with the refugee crisis. He noted the disproportionate character of this aid, implying that the Europeans were indirectly financing Turkish ambitions.

A mayor says Clinton is 'founding member' of Daesh


Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani claimed that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton played a role in the rise of the Daesh, German newspaper Focus online reported.

According to the former mayor, Clinton's policies in Iraq, as well as the interference in the situation in Syria have led to the radicalization of Shiites, thus, leading to the creation of Daesh terrorist group.

"She helped create ISIS [Daesh]. Hillary Clinton could be considered a founding member of ISIS," Giuliani told Fox News.

"By being part of an administration that withdrew from Iraq," he elaborated. "By being part of an administration that let [former Prime Minister Nouri] al-Maliki run Iraq into the ground, so you forced the Shiites to make a choice."

Hillary Clinton served as US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. Syria has been mired in civil war since 2011, with the country’s government fighting numerous opposition factions and jihadist groups, including Daesh and al-Nusra Front.

The former mayor also added that Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump or Ted Cruz would be the perfect choice to defeat the brutal terrorist group.

Unseen UFO caught in El Paso, Texas


On May 2, 2015, several friends were four wheeling in the area of El Paso (in Texas). During this journey, one of them has caught an unidentified flying object. No one has seen it. So, this UFO was no visible to naked eye and noiseless.

Witness statement:

Myself and some friends were 4 wheeling in the Oro Grande mountains right by the military site and once we reached the top of the mountain I took several pics and didn't realize I had captured this UFO until later on at night. We did not see anything in the sky or hear anything once the jeeps were turned off, it was dead silent when I took the pics. There wasn't anything flying around us at any time. My guess is I just happen to take this one pic at just the right time.

Badass chairs made from AK-47s


Austrian designer Rainer Weber has created a collection of chairs made from dismantled Kalashnikov AK-47 assault rifles, according to luxurylaunches.com

Rainer Weber was inspired to make use of the world-famous Russian weapon after reading a book about its creator – Mikhail Kalashnikov.

Taking apart several previously used AKs Weber chrome-plated the parts and welded them back together to build a chair.

The upholstery on the arms rests and backrests is the work of Backhousen, in Vienna. This was then sent to Venice to be hand woven by the Luigi Bevilacqua Company.

As a package deal a buyer will get an original Russian steel helmet – chrome-plated with leather-coated interior.

The report makes no mention of the actual price of one such chair through.

The AK-47 assault rifle, designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov, has come a long way since it was introduced into active service with the Soviet armed forces in 1949.

67 years on there are an estimated 100 million modified AK-47s in use in 55 countries.

Aliens abducted a man in Gaylord in 2014


On November 14, 2014, during the night, a woman has seen her husband to be abducted by aliens. The witness, living in Gaylord (Otsego County, Michigan) certified that all her life some aliens visited her.

Witness statement:

I am a 58 year old white female, I have been an abductee all my life, as my mother was. I have decided to finally tell my (stories) too many to list here. I do have some very pertainet information, that to the best of my knowledge no one has ever stated in any reports I have ever read. The abduction of my husband was as follows: I have never had a memory of him ever being abducted. In November of 2014 at approximately 2:53am i was in bed the foot of the bed facing a sliding glass door, when I awoke to a presence I laid in bed and observed a 30foot disc like object that appeared to be vertical so I could observe the undercarriage of the object. I observed I believe at least 3 circular rows of lights, most outer edge being red, then inner circle was white, then center row was green. It is so strange but I scooted over to one side of the bed as so they wouldn't see me. Fell back to sleep for what reason I don't understand, but this will happen to me like they have total control over my reactions/behaviors. The next thing I remember is I could hear my dog running from the side of the bed, it startled me as it awoke me with her running and her nails clicking on the hardwood floor. I remember running down the hall and yelling her name, she would normally come to me. As I approached the end of the hall and turned to go into the living room which was to the right, I saw her sitting and staring at the front door, it has frosted glass and I could see a red and a green blinking lights. I squatted down, and checked to see if she was breathing, calling her name, her ears were perked up, and she had no knowledge of my presence. I can remember saying aloud ok she is a live, then the lights stopped blinking and she was back out of her trance. I went to the chair where my husband had been sleeping, and he was not there. I looked out the sliding glass door in the front, and I saw what they had planted in my mind, I said oh its ok there is just cars parked in front so the people can go into church! They are very clever to plant images, so they can control you. I then started to walk into the kitchen when I came face to face with a 4 foot tall white colored entity, and a 5 foot tall grey. I poked the white entity, and stated "what did you do to my dog". then when I realized I poked (him) my finger nail went into his skin, I then drew my finger back looked at my nail, and stated "I'm sorry I didn't mean to hurt you!

Snowden: 'The Brussels attack was preventable'


Edward Snowden claims that this week's terror bomb attacks in Brussels that killed over 30 people and injured hundreds of others were preventable through traditional intelligence service.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – This week's terror bomb attacks in Brussels that killed over 30 people and injured hundreds of others were preventable through traditional intelligence services, not electronic mass surveillance, whistleblower Edward Snowden says.

"The Brussels attack was preventable through traditional intelligence means," Snowden stressed on Friday, speaking by telecast from an undisclosed location in Russia at a conference hosted in Tucson, Arizona by the University of Arizona College of Behavioral Sciences.

Snowden, a former contractor for the US National Security Agency (NSA) revealed the vast extent of US government secret surveillance of its citizens in 2013. He was a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee who copied classified information from the NSA to reveal the secret programs to the public.

"Resources are misallocated… When you collect everything you understand nothing… You don't have the focus… You're blinded by the noise. We are classifying so many things that we have lost sight of what a real life-threatening secret truly is," Snowden said on Friday.

The whistleblower pointed out that according to published reports, Turkey had informed the Belgian government in advance about the suspicious activities of the individuals who carried out the Brussels attacks.

Snowden also mentioned that mass electronic surveillance had failed to prevent the Boston Marathon bombings by the Tsarnaev brothers in 2013.

According to Snowden, Russian authorities warned the FBI in 2011 about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two brothers, but US authorities missed chances to detain him.

How social media is creating an 'Orwellian' society


Social media platforms such as Facebook are having a "chilling effect" on the everyday behavior of young people, who are increasingly altering their actions amid concerns they are under constant surveillance from online friends, researchers have told Sputnik.

Joint research conducted by academics from the University of Edinburgh Business School, the University of Bath and the University of Birmingham have uncovered previously held concerns about how social media is affecting the lives of young, impressionable users.

Following in-depth interviews with a number of 19-22-year-old Britons, the study found that many Facebook users were self-censoring their day-to-day lives, known as a "chilling effect" to avoid disapproval from online friends.

"The vast majority of the ones that participated in the study had been, to an extent, chilling their behavior, due to the fear of what would go online," Dr Ben Marder, researcher from the University of Edinburgh Business School, told Sputnik.

'Am I Standing Too Close to This Boy?'

One of those who participated in the study, a 20-year-old student by the name of *Emma, said she would be constantly monitoring her behavior while in social situations to avoid creating a negative online perception of herself.

"At parties every time a picture was taken I [would] put the spliff behind my back so people on Facebook don't think I'm a constant druggie," she said.

"If the photo was not going to end up on Facebook, I wouldn't care as much […] because not everyone would see it."

Another participant, a 21-year-old called *Shelly, admitted she had changed the way she interacted with others at parties to avoid damaging any of her personal relationships.

"I remember during freshers' [university orientation] week I had a boyfriend. He was really jealous and he saw some pictures of me on someone's shoulders… and just went mental at me. So I had to consciously think every time there was a camera out: 'oh, am I standing too close to this boy?' "

'Under Constant Surveillance'

While the monitoring of online behavior isn't necessarily a new phenomenon, Dr Marder said the prevalence of social media and the increased availability and accessibility of modern technology was blurring the lines between the online and offline lives of some people.

"Essentially, the 'chilling effect' has existed online for a while, but now with the world of camera phones and the instantaneous transfer of information from reality to the online domain, this chilling effect has extended. So we're not just monitoring our online persona, but we're monitoring our offline persona too," Dr Marder told Sputnik.

"In 'olden day times', when there was no social media, you could often relax about the way you were presenting yourself; you could not wear make-up, you could talk freely using whatever language you wanted.

"But now, you could be photographed by anyone and tagged online, which means that you're under constant surveillance, which means that to an extent, you're constantly worried about how you're presenting yourself, and that's not just to the people around you, but also to your online audiences, which are vast and varied."

Dr Marder said this blurring of the boundaries between our online and offline worlds raised suggestions that the modern world was becoming an intrusive, "kind of Orwellian society."

"What started as a tool to bring warmth to our relationships, has starting to have a chilling effect on our behavior. Big Brother might not be watching, but our Facebook friends are. And it's reducing our freedom."

*The names of those appearing in the study have been changed for privacy reasons.

Possible alien abduction in Elk Grove, California


On March 11, 2016, a person living in Elk Grove (Sacramento County, California) thinks to have abducted by aliens. In fact, he remembered strange events that occured that night.

Witness statement:

One night a few weeks ago I went to bed a little later than I usually do only to experience what felt like an alien abduction. I sleep in a bedroom that is parallel by a few feet to my parents room. Inside my parents room is a screen door that opens up to a balcony (as we all sleep upstairs). I remember moving so fast towards the screen door at night that it was as if something was rushing me to it and I recall being in a somewhat upright position. I remember seeing a big cloud of white haze/fog/mist on the outside of the screen door. The next memory I have was feeling very frantic the thought "I'm not ready" over and over again and what seemed like the presence of a few beings surrounding me as I was on what I believe was an operation table. The last memory I have is something going to open my eye as they were shut and being blinded by a bright light.

Snowden warns world against trusting privacy to tech giants


The whistleblower who exposed the totality of the America’s mass domestic surveillance program suggested that users should look to free and open source software to preserve their privacy.

On Saturday, NSA whistleblower spoke to the Free Software Foundation’s LibrePlanet2016 conference regarding free software, cybersecurity, and privacy. He joined the event through video conference from Russia. During the event, Snowden explained that he was able to release the secrets of America’s mass surveillance projects more securely by using free software.

The whistleblower praised Debian, Tails, and Tor observing that what he did in 2013 never could have happened without the help of free software. He also advocates that activists and journalists switch to free and open source software to secure their privacy against the omnipresent US surveillance state.

I didn’t use Microsoft machines when I was in my operational phase, because I couldn’t trust them,” explained Snowden. He went on to say that he couldn’t be sure that there wasn’t a backdoor coded into the Microsoft products that would enable government surveillance.

In making this dour assessment of Microsoft, he noted that of the current tech giants, the company has been the most cooperative with the US government.

He cited Microsoft founder Bill Gates calling on Apple to install a backdoor into the iPhone at the request of a federal court which opens millions of end users up to the danger of a growing mass surveillance program.

Snowden praised Apple’s fight with the FBI calling it an example of a corporation standing up for its users. Still, the whistleblower cautioned citizens against relying on multinational companies for transmissions that are intended to be secure.

Only Ukraine could bring down MH17


The deputy of the parliament of the Netherlands Pieter Omtzigt (CDA) reported that during the closed hearings concerning the investigation of Malaysian Boeing MH17 crash in Donbass, there was declared that only Ukraiane could had shot down the plane.

On January 22 this year in the parliament of the Netherlands there have taken place the closed hearings on investigation of the causes of MH17 crash. The Dutch deputies were addressed by the head of the special commission which is engaged in supervision of intelligence agencies and Defense Ministries, so-called CTIVD (the supervisor of secret services) Harm Brouwer.

This Dutch official told the deputies that, according to the investigation of the causes of MH17 crash, the passenger plane had been shot down from ”BUK” surface-to-air missile system. At the same time, according to investigation, as of July 17 when the plane was shot down, only the Ukrainian party had an efficient "BUK" system in Donbass.

The deputy Omtzigtt, being at the closed hearings in the parliament, published this information on the twitter account on the same day, on January 22. It is remarkable that this information wasn’t widely popularized.

The first who paid attention to this information was the Ukrainian political scientist, the director of the Center of the Euroasian researches Vladimir Kornilov. Besides this really sensational tweet,which for some reason remained unnoticed, Kornilov also gives a surprising illustration from the Dutch newspapers and the websites which publish pages from an official crash report of MH17.

The fact is that most of these pages were simply deleted. What kind of information was on these pages and why investigation was afraid to publish it, remains unclear.

As for the deputy Omtzigt, it is difficult to suspect him of support of Russia. In due time he actively supported release of Yulia Tymoshenko from prison. He demanded in the name of PACE to release Tymoshenko, and also one more arrested politician — Yury Lutsenko who directs now the faction of Poroshenko’s party in the Verkhovna Rada.

A man abducted by aliens in Clovis, in 1975


On August 11, 1975, a man called Dan and living in Clovis (California) has perhaps been abducted by aliens after to have seen a mysterious unidentified flying object.

Witness statement:

I spent three decades of my life on the radio so my credibility as a broadcaster might be thrown right out the door tonight. On the 11th of August, 1975, I was in Clovis, California, at my girlfriend's house out by the pool when two jet fighters flew directly over our house, maybe 100 feet off the ground. Now, spending 5 years in civil air patrol, I know that jet fighters are not supposed to fly that low over houses, although we were in a remote area. They were so close to each other they looked like one plane and I saw them before I heard them. I got up and turned around 180 degrees and they were at eye level with me. They flew really fast. One went one way and the other went the opposite with way, so they went 90 degree angles away from each other. Then I laid back down and what did I see? Up in the sky right ahead of me, an object.

I learned to fly at 15 years old and I'm pretty familiar with aerodynamics and how planes move and this object, it looked like it was glinting off the fuselage and we weren't that far from the airport, maybe 12 miles, so I thought okay, it's the plane. All of a sudden it did a 90 degree turn. I could not believe it so I get up and I tried to get someone’s attention in the house because now I realize what I'm seeing – it's a UFO. And I've never seen...

Now this was in the evening about 7 o'clock. This is the 11th of August, 1975. I was watching this thing move and I couldn't talk and all of a sudden I couldn't get anyone to notice. I was just going - uh, uh, uh, uh - trying to get people's attention. Then this UFO turned into a bright white light. Now this is the weird part. I documented this in a column update years ago but I've never talked about it to too many people. And that's all I remember. As soon as I saw that bright white light. Next thing I remember is I see swirling lights in front of me, like somebody is on an LSD trip or something and I want to tell you something, I was not. I see these lights and then all of a sudden it's dark. I didn't even realize I'd been missing until I went back in the house. Everybody is angry with me because I missed dinner. To me, I never left the backyard. I didn't even get the fact that I was missing time. I was gone for like two and a half hours but I never left the backyard. Now my girlfriend, this is the beginning of the end for that relationship because my girlfriend's parents never really liked me after that and I had been living with her for years.

I had several paranormal experiences after that. The thing I'm saying is that if I was abducted, I don't remember anything. There was no aliens involved. I lost time, that's all I recall, like I said. What the heck happened to me?

Obama creates a new system for manipulating information


President Obama has decided to replace the «Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications», created in 2011, by a «Global Engagement Center». To that end, on the 14th March 2016, he signed a secret decree – but a copy is already in circulation.

The new administration will be charged with fighting recruitment by terrorist groups. While still placed under the authority of the Secretary of State, it will be directed by Michael D. Lumpkin (photo). It will be «integrated», in other words, administered by a council including representatives from various Ministries and agencies which deal with intelligence or propaganda. It has an annual budget of 20 million dollars. This money will be used not to produce messages, but to subsidise as discretely as possible bloggers or leaders of opinion whose messages are judged to be useful. The GEC will work exclusively in foreign countries.

Let’s remember that the United States may unofficially support certain groups that it considers as «terrorist», as well as any group resisting imperialism – which is why the Centre is attached to the Secretary of State, while being directed by a senior civil servant of the Defence, Michael D. Lumpkin, currently the Assistant Secretary of Defence for Special Operations and Low Intensity Conflict.

A cigar-shaped UFO over Oakwood, Georgia


On March 2, 2016, an automobilist was driving when he has spotted a cigar-shaped UFO flying over Oakwood, a city located in Hall County, Georgia. This sighted lasted about 10 seconds.

Witness statement:

I was on my way to my aunt's house when I just happened to look up to the right and immediately I noticed a dark cigar shaped UFO in the sky.

It was kinda far away, but I knew that I was not looking at a plane.

All of a sudden, it was like the UFO began reflecting the Sun, and it glowed a very bright orange.

At this time the object became obscured by trees, and when it became clear again, the object was gone.

I searched the sky for several minutes looking for the ufo, but I was able to find it again.

How a ‘Death Star’ will destroy Earth


Astronomers keep watching a distant star in the process of destroying several exoplanets orbiting it. Many fear that our Sun may someday become the like of the white dwarf called WD 1145+017 and will likewise rip apart our Solar system.

The findings are the first observation of a solar system being torn apart by a dead star, according to a team reporting today in the journal Nature.

This is something no human has seen before,” said Andrew Vanderburg of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

We’re watching a solar system get destroyed,” he said in a statement.

Dr. Vanderburg and his team had used NASA’s exoplanet-hunting Kepler spacecraft to make the discovery.

In October 2015 astronomers announced that they had discovered a rocky object coming apart in a death spiral around this distant star.

It was the first planetary-sized object detected orbiting the white dwarf.

They had noticed a regular dip in the brightness of the WD 1145+017, which is about 570 light years away in the constellation Virgo, every four-and-a-half hours, suggesting an object was orbiting the star at a distance of about 840,000 kilometers — about twice the distance between Earth and the Moon.

The discovery has provided a glimpse of what may happen to our own Solar System when the Sun stops burning.

Our sun will one day balloon out to become a red giant star, wiping out Mercury and Venus and maybe Earth, before it becomes a white dwarf,” lead author Boris Gänsicke, an astronomer at the University of Warwick, told Space.com.

By looking at this white dwarf, we get a look at what the future of the Solar System might be like,” he added.

White dwarfs are the remains of dead Sun-like stars which have run out of fuel

After first expanding into a red giant and engulfing the inner planets (which in the Solar System will include Earth), the star sheds its outer layers to leave a small and very dense core.

Flying saucer spotted over Pensacola, Florida


On March 14, 2016, a couple living in Pensacola (city located in Escambia County) has spotted a weird flying saucer who emitted blue and white lights. There are no photo or video of this event.

Testimony:

Witness saw disc shape that "went flat". It had 4 blue-white lights. It moved horizontally up and down and side to side in a jerky fashion. It seemed to be moving to her movements, beckoning her to see it. She ran inside to get her husband who saw the object also. It then moved quickly straight up. They watched the object for a while and then, tired of watching it, went back into their house.

Saudi authorities shut down over 600,000 porn websites


The Communications and Information Technology Commission of Saudi Arabia blocked more than half a million websites that contained pornographic and other prohibited materials.

According to the Committee's statement released by local media, over the last two years more than 600,000 websites have been identified by the country's authorities as violating national laws.

Those who have published and promoted pornographic content will face up to 5 years in prison and a fine of 3 million Saudi riyals (about $800,000).

Saudi newspaper Al-Watan quoted press secretary of the Committee Faiz Al-Atiby who said that the institution has its own sources to identify and block pornographic websites in the country.

"The Committee's activities to detect and block pornographic sites are based on special sources. These sources are updated daily for the purpose of surveillance and evaluation of websites and are followed by blocking pornography. In addition, [the Committee] examines relevant reports from the users and the competent authorities," Al-Atiby said.

According to media reports published in December 2015, dozens of major porn sites appear annually in the Middle East and are free for public access. In 2015, 26 criminal cases were filed in Saudi Arabia's courts on charges of "information crime" and "creation of pornographic materials".

Earlier, in 2014 several porn websites were hacked and blocked by a user under the pseudonym "Islamic Hacker," who claimed to be fighting against "depraved data". The hacker became popular due to the fact that he started publishing videos where he showed how he hacked porn sites and other websites with "undesirable" material.

Cylinder-shaped UFO spotted in Stover, Missouri


On Januay 3, 2016, at around 18:05, a cylinder-shaped UFO has been spotted over the little town of Stover (in Morgan County, Missouri). The witness has seen this mysterious object during about 30 seconds.

Witness statement:

Observed a cylinder shaped object just north of our home, about 300 feet above the cove hovering, than object did a turn to the right than left and it had 3 bright yellow lights on the rear as it moved north and then vanished. It was still light out and the sun was reflecting off of the object. I got a side view and it had large cylinder main body, and 2 smaller cylinders on each side and appeared that all three were connected. Triangle shaped lights on the rear as it moved away. No noise and had no wings. Very large craft. Larger than a passenger jet. I observed it for 30 seconds before it vanished.

WWIII: US Army Stockpiles Munitions Near China


US Army announces plans to place munitions stockpiles in Vietnam, Cambodia, and other area countries in a bid to contain the regional expansion of Chinese influence.

On Wednesday, the US Army announced that it plans to stockpile munitions and military supplies in Vietnam, Cambodia, and several other undisclosed nations including, experts believe, the Philippines, as the US adopts an increasingly aggressive military posture toward China.

US officials state that the munitions caches, placed within areas China considers to be within its "sphere of influence," are necessary to respond to regional "threats" by Russia and North Korea, and allow for more rapid deployment.

Army Material Command Chief Gen. Dennis Via emphasized that, in addition to munitions, the sites will contain Humanitarian and Disaster Relief (HADR) supplies. The decision to place an American Army cache within Vietnam, the site of a bloody and largely unnecessary US war that ended in 1975, is a startling turn of events that has left Beijing incensed.

The move comes in response to what the US has alleged are repeated steps by China to militarize the region in what is seen as a push to dominate the South China Sea.

Former CIA chief General Michael Hayden expressed the need to expand US influence in the South China Sea, in an effort to contain Chinese expansion. Hayden suggested that to mishandle the rise of China "would be catastrophic."

The Center for Strategic and International Studies echoed Hayden’s concerns, observing that the South China Sea would become a "Chinese lake," by 2030, especially following Beijing’s recent placement of surface-to-air missiles on a manufactured island within the disputed territory. China maintains that it has every right to build within what it considers to be its own territory, and that the islands will be used primarily for humanitarian purposes.

Not everybody sees the wisdom of President Obama’s move. Washington Post opinion writer David Ignatius on Wednesday published the headline, "The US is heading toward a dangerous showdown with China," in which he cites former assistant secretary of state for Asia Kurt Campbell expressing concern that the Obama administration’s posturing could trigger World War III.

Campbell was quoted as saying, "This isn’t Pearl Harbor, but if people on all sides aren’t careful, it could be ‘The Guns of August,’" referring to Barbara Tuchman’s seminal book detailing the chain of events that led to World War I. He accuses President Obama of once again engaging in brinksmanship, suggesting that efforts to force China to exercise restraint in the region are turning into "another red line moment."

It is not known whether China will interpret US actions as an effort to seize new territories and "encircle" the country, in what is increasingly looking like an old-fashioned Washington-style Cold War mindset. Some believe that Beijing will instead interpret the US moves as a nudge toward displaying more restraint in their own territorial ambitions. The future of humanity may depend on that calculation.

Strange glowing UFO spotted over Andisheh, Iran


On June 1st, 2011, a man and his wife were in Andisheh (in Tehran Province, Iran) when they have seen through their apartment window a very bright undentified flying object over buildings. They have caught some pictures but it is impossible to identify this UFO.

Witness statement:

Looking out of our apartment window, me and my partner saw an object that was hoovering in the sky, above a four storey building. It felt very close. It had lights on that went round in a circle. It wasn't that high in the sky, but I couldn't see enough to see any windows etc. The object remained in the same position before heading off. It moved quite steadily and didn't zoom off or disappear suddenly. I came away thinking it might be some form of an advanced military craft because of how solid and real it looked, and how near it was to us and how it moved (nothing exceptional). It felt like the craft was hoovering while doing some kind of a survey, or was pausing for a moment in its journey.

The Mystery of ‘Fairy Circles’ may soon be unveiled


Scientists may have found a solution to one of biology’s most intricate puzzles, the ‘fairy circles’ of Namibia.

'Fairy circles' are circular patches of barren land surrounded by grass, and were previously only encountered in the arid wastes of the Namib Desert in Namibia.

However, a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal by a team of scientists reveals that a similar phenomenon exists in the Australian outback, thousands of miles away from Southern Africa.

Furthermore, despite the difference in plant and animal species in the two regions, the circles in Australia have the exact same hexagonal distribution as the ones in Africa.

According to the scientists, fairy circles are a product of "a self-organization phenomenon driven by water–vegetation interactions", and their "birth and death processes correspond to spatially confined transitions between alternative stable states."
