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

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

Algunos cristales cambian su dureza con solo girarlos

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

SHARED Death Experience??

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

A Massive Hole has Opened Up in the Antarctic Ice

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

Does the Great Sphinx have an Undiscovered Twin Sister?

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

Argentina: A Triangular UFO in Mendoza (1976)



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

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

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

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

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

War Danger

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

Mexico: A Mothership Over Nuevo León?

Researcher Ana Luis Cid sends us the following:

"This video was sent to me by Efrén Sauceda Tello. Dozens of spheres seemingly issue from a very large object at 19:30 hours. This was recorded in Escobedo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico using a Sony TRV 380 camera

[The percipient] was driving his car when his niece Claudia called his attention to something she could see. He pulled over to begin recording. After 15 minutes, the smaller figures were gone and only the larger one remained, although somewhat hazy. The witness looked into the possibility of some local major event involving a release of balloons, but found nothing.

"I conducted my own research and could not find any sources, yet this possibility cannot be dismissed altogether. The sighting took place on September 5, 2006. I'm only just publishing it it now since the tape had been lost along with other materials."

Chile: Inquest into Paihuano UFO Crash Requested 19 Years After the Event



Source: PLANETA UFO and Diario La Región
Date: 10.12.17


Chile: Inquest into Paihuano UFO Crash Requested 19 Years After the Event

Each year, on October 7, the residents of the Paihuano commune recall one of northern Chile's most significant and controversial UFO events: the alleged UFO crash against Cerro Las Mollacas.

This mysterious event began on the hot afternoon of 1998 when many witnesses claimed having seen a silvery object colliding only meters away from the summit of this mountain.

From that moment onward, numerous witnesses were interviewed by local and national media and some UFO researchers from the capital city allegedly saw a strange glow on the slopes of Las Mollacas. Raul Flores was among them. He said he had never seen anything so strange before. "I could see the object on the mountain. It resembled a metallic disc reflecting the sunlight with a glint of metal. Others saw it as well. I'm sure of what I saw. It wasn't the sun shining against rocks or anything similar," he explained.

Marco Antonio Gallardo, a well-known broadcaster, said the object "[approached the summit] with smoke, it was cylindrical and measured some 3 to 4 meters in diameter, and was red in color."

On October 9 of that year, a group of civilians and Carabineros officers from the Paihuano barracks reached the site without finding remains of the object or any abnormalities. The place where the UFO allegedly crashed is hard to reach and the trip takes nearly six hours. The Carabineros reached the site again the following day, this time accompanied by personnel from the Serena PAE and according to some witnesses, also by elements from the GOPE (Special Operations Group) based in Santiago. A horse called 'Calambrito' died as result of the strain. This was confirmed by Cesar Uribe, a retired Carabinero who now lives in the commune of Coquimbo. Nothing was ever found in the vicinity. However, there was much speculation about the presence of the Chilean army in the area. There was also talk of helicopters or heavy trucks that ascended to the location through the rear of Cerro Las Mollacas.


The first official explanation delivered was that a "stone pained white" was involved. This was immediately rejected by all witnesses, since many had lived in the area for many years and had never seen such a stone.

The other explanation was offered by the Cerro Toledo observatory. Arturo Gomez, an astrophotographer, noted: "Everything points to a bolide, that is to say, a meteorite that did not strike the Earth's surface, but rather broke into pieces in the upper atmosphere, accompanied by a loud report and brightness."

Gomez further added that he "fully rejected the possibility that the object that exploded over the Vicuña commune could be a manmade craft, such as space junk, since these devices do not explode or produce light due to their reentry speed. They burn up without further ado."

Journalistic activity did not stop for many years after the incident on October 7. Correspondents for television stations and live reports were the norm. Many tourists also visited the area, drawn by the story. The interest shown by researchers of the phenomenon caused the communal authorities to issue a decree devoting a week in October to popularization activities on the mystery in local schools and cultural institutions.

Now, 19 years after the event, Juan Castillo, one of the country's foremost researchers and the author of several books on the UFO subject, told LA REGION that the case should be reopened to carry out a more thorough investigation into the Cerro Las Mollacas event.

Non Disclosure Event

Tom DeLonge's big event has come and gone. Mostly gone. None of the substance that I hoped would be there appeared, and the program was confined to half an hour, not the full hour I thought was originally intended. I guess that the substantial stuff disappeared into the half hour that was dropped. Why that happened, or if it was originally intended to be this way, we'll probably never know. Or if I simply misunderstood what was being planned.

The evidence for the existence of Planet Nine – a hypothetical planet ten times the mass of the Earth that orbits on the far reaches of the Solar System -- has been stacking up over the decades, from the Nemesis hypothesis; through more recent examinations of the orbits of trans-Neptunian objects, the paths of which can only be explained by the presence of such a massive object on the Solar System's fringe; to the possibility that such a planet may be responsible for the tilt in the orbits of known planets.

U.S. Air Force's Drone Control Systems have been Infected by a Computer Virus

The control systems for the US Air Force's Predator and Reaper drones at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada have been infected by a persistent computer virus, one that appears to resist being removed. The virus appears to be a simple keylogger virus -- a program that records the keystrokes of the person using the infected computer -- so it doesn't interfere with the actual flight operations of the pilots, but multiple attempts to remove the infection have proved to be fruitless -- and the origin of the invasive program also remains unknown.

"We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back," according to a source familiar with the situation. "We think it's benign. But we just don't know."

Nate to Make Landfall in US as Category 2 Hurricane

Hurricane Nate is moving at a remarkable speed of 23 miles an hour, the fastest on record in the Gulf of Mexico. This is fortunate, because if the storm had stalled over open gulf waters as Katrina and Harvey did, it had the capacity to grow much stronger in a matter of hours. Nevertheless, it is very dangerous, with 90MPH winds and extreme rainfall and is expected to cause extensive damage from wind and flooding in the affected area.

The storm is predicted to make landfall over the mouth of the Mississippi River and to affect Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida.

Hurricane warnings are in place from Grand Isle, Louisiana to the Florida/Alabama border. This has prompted the mayor of New Orleans to issue mandatory evacuation orders for parts of the city.

Archaeologists in Turkey believe they may have found the true tomb of Hágios Nikólaos, better known in the west as Saint Nicholas, the fourth-century saint famous for his charity work and gift-giving, that eventually led to the modern-day legend of Santa Claus. Scholars have been questioning the validity of the remains interred in the Basilica di San Nicola in Bari, Italy, that are traditionally attributed to Nicholas, based on documentation retrieved from the region. Now, recent archaeological surveys have revealed an intact temple and burial site underneath Saint Nicholas Church in Antalya, Turkey, that may hold Saint Nicholas' true remains.

Patines a motor y un propulsor para natación

De esto que te encuentras revisando algunas publicaciones de 1906 y, de repente, un extravagante personaje te asalta desde una portada de Scientific American

Y, en las páginas interiores, la cosa mejora porque, junto a una amplia descripción del invento, se incluye un gráfico del mismo.

Estamos a principios del siglo XX, cuando prácticamente se está poniendo un motor a todo tipo de vehículos. Era el tiempo en que nacían las motocicletas, los novísimos automóviles, camiones, autobuses y, claro está: patines. El protagonista de esa portada no fue el único, ni mucho menos. Se aplicaron motores eléctricos, de explosión, y hasta a vapor, a patines, patinetes, triciclos y monociclos.

Hoy existen diversos tipos de patines motorizados (y con luces), pero por ese tiempo era algo que rozaba lo mágico. Hay que recordar que eran unos años en los que tres tecnologías estaban luchando por hacerse con el mercado de la propulsión: los motores a vapor, que ya contaban con larga tradición. Los motores eléctricos, representados por decenas de modelos de automóvil eléctrico que se comercializaron entre la última década del siglo XIX y la Primera Guerra Mundial. Y, cómo no, los vehículos dotados con motor de explosión, que estaban por entonces tomando la delantera.

En Scientific American comentaban acerca de este artilugio que se trataba de un invento creado por M. Constantini (presentó su máquina en Francia pero presumiblemente era de origen italiano, por lo recogido en noticias de la época). Era un conocido fabricante de carburadores y accesorios para automóviles. Al parecer, se trataba de la primera vez (o, al menos, una de las primeras porque nunca se sabe en estos casos) que se aplicaba un pequeño motor de gasolina para moverse sobre patines. Constantini expuso su invento en el Salón del Automóvil de París y, no contento sólo con mostrarlo, se animó a circular por las calles parisinas con semejante artilugio. La gente se asombraba al verlo pasar. Cada patín contaba con un motor de gasolina (de cuatro kilos cada uno), batería, bobina de chispa, carburador, ruedas de goma y todo lo necesario para controlar los dos propulsores. Esos controles se encontraban en el cinturón del viajero, que podía controlar el apagado de cada motor y el flujo de gasolina desde un depósito que se situaba a modo de mochila a su espalda.

El peso de cada patín completo rondaba los seis kilogramos. Se comentaba que podía llegarse a los 40 kilómetros por hora de velocidad con semejante artilugio. Para comenzar el viaje, se arrancaba cada motor de forma individual, ajustando la mezcla y controlando la alimentación por medio de unos cables. Para detenerse, no había más que apretar el botón de cierre de circuito eléctrico de las bujías y, ya está, tenemos los motores parados. Claro, era complicado ajustar la velocidad de los dos motores, por lo que había que ir jugando con el balance de peso con los pies hasta dar con el equilibrio adecuado.

La prensa de la época ya se había hecho eco de una versión de los patines “de cien leguas” que Constantini había ideado. Ese modelo inicial contaba con motor eléctrico, pero su autonomía era escasa. Con el modelo de gasolina, Constantini afirmaba tener una autonomía de 120 kilómetros (a razón de un litro de gasolina cada 60 kilómetros, teniendo en cuenta que el depósito tenía una capacidad de 2 litros de combustible). Ese mismo año de 1906, el número 339 de la revista El mundo científico (Barcelona, 29 de septiembre), informaba que Constantini había modificado su pequeño motor para aplicarlo a un “nadador automático”, algo así como una especie de mochila propulsora para navegar de forma autónoma (ver imagen pequeña).

Madrid científico, en su número 558, de 1907, menciona ese otro invento motorizado:

De día en día vamos acercándonos al ideal de que los esfuerzos musculares del hombre sean únicamente esfuerzos directores, gracias al desarrollo de la mecánica. Lo que se refiere a la locomoción individual no podía exceptuarse de esta regla general. Hace algún tiempo se habló de los patines con motor de gasolina inventados por el Sr. Constantini, de París. Con ellos las famosas «botas de cien leguas» del espantoso gigantón que tantas proezas hace en los cuentos de niños, venían a tener un comienzo de realización práctica. El mismo inventor ha ideado y publicado más recientemente otro aparato que es a la natación lo que los patines consabidos son al pedestrismo. Con éstos cualquiera podría pasar por un gran andarín; con el otro, todos, hasta los más inexpertos, podrán emular las hazañas de los más famosos nadadores. El cuerpo principal del aparato consiste en una ligera caja de aluminio de unos 50 centímetrosde altura. La caja va colocada y sujeta por unas correas a la espalda del nadador, el cual queda sentado en un sillín L de chapa metálica recubierta de corcho y a cuya parte delantera va unido un flotador M henchido de aire. En la caja va un motor de gasolina que mueve la hélice J protegida por un cono de tela metálica. Normalmente, el aire necesario para el motor se toma de la atmósfera libre y cuando la caja está accidentalmente sumergida, un tubo E conduce el aire de un flotador no representado en la figura. El depósito de gasolina A va colocado en la parte superior y posterior de la caja. Para impedir la entrada del aire, el tubo de salida de los gases va provisto de una válvula especial O representada aparte en la figura. Dos flotadores, no marcados en el dibujo, van uno a cada lado del nadador asegurando su estabilidad. La distancia que puede recorrerse con este aparato no tiene más límite que el agotamiento de la provisión de gasolina, y dado el tamaño del tanque, resulta que estando el mar en buenas condiciones pueden recorrerse bastantes millas con este aparato. Se pretende, además, que el propulsor, sobre ser de aplicación útilísima en el deporte de la natación, puede también resultar de eficacia grande como salvavidas.

Ride the 37th Parallel: America's UFO Highway

A brother-sister team of paranormal researchers has found a pattern in the locations of anomalous phenomena, strewn along an east-west line following the 37th parallel, a formation they're dubbing America's "Paranormal Freeway". This latitude line is easy to pick out on a map, as it lies on the southern borders of Colorado, Kansas and Utah, and correspondingly the northern borders of Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. The phenomena involved along 37º north include cattle mutilations, UFO sightings, ghost hauntings, and government installations such as Area 51, along with numerous Native American sacred sites and underwater caves.

USDA Study Shows Livestock Methane Emissions were Significantly Underestimated

A new study has found that a 2011 estimate of methane emissions generated by the planet's livestock was incorrect, with the new finding indicating that they were actually 11 percent higher than the numbers used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), leading to the guidelines and targets set out in the Paris climate accord. Methane (CH4) is produced from the decomposition of biological matter, such as livestock manure, and is a potent greenhouse gas, retaining up to 86 times more heat energy than the same mass of carbon dioxide over a 20-year period.

Fortean Events: Fish Rain from the Sky over Mexico

Although it's (finally) not raining cats and dogs in Tamaulipas state in northeastern Mexico, on September 26 the coastal city of Tampico reported a rain of small fish from the sky, accompanying a light rainshower.

Although a rare and extremely unusual occurrence, events such as this have been explained as being caused by tornadoes or waterspouts that form over water, sucking fish high into the air, that eventually fall back down in a different area.

Strange phenomena such as this were extensively cataloged by early 20th-century writer Charles Fort, including falls of frogs, fishes, as well as other inorganic materials, leading to the term "Fortean phenomena".

SpaceX's Big [Freakin'] Rocket could carry Passengers to the Moon, Mars... and Manchester?

No-one could possibly accuse entrepreneurial wunderkind Elon Musk of being less than ambitious: between revolutionizing the electric car industry (Tesla), expanding the solar-electric generation industry (SolarCity), and devising new rapid mass-transit methods (Hyperloop), it's a wonder he has time for more out-of-this world endeavors, namely his SpaceX spaceship manufacturing and transport company. And now Musk says that SpaceX's ambitious BFR spacecraft could be used to carry passengers not only to the Moon and Mars, but also on shorter trips around the globe, including trans-Atlantic flights that could be undertaken in less than half an hour.

Solar Storms may cause some Whales to Tragically Beach Themselves

In early 2016, 29 male sperm whales beached themselves along the shores of shores of France, Germany, Great Britain, and the Netherlands; with the tragic incidents occurring over a period of time totaling less than a month from January 8 to February 4. Autopsies performed on the whales found that they were all healthy, and well-nourished – offering no apparent physiological reason for the cetaceans to run themselves aground. But researchers looking into the case began to question whether or not the creatures' navigation systems were compromised in some manner, disorienting them in a fashion that would ultimately prove to be fatal.

Cattle Mutilations: "Aliens Were Involved, Without a Doubt"

Cattle Mutilations: "Aliens Were Involved, Without a Doubt"

GENERAL SAN MARTIN, Argentina - Another animal was found mutilated this weekend, this time in a field adjacent to the community of General San Martin, belonging to Julio Zurbirgk, who believes the perpetrators are not human.

The bovine, a black Aberdeen Angus cow, showing the tell-tale signs of mutilation, was found over the weekend in a ranch some 15 kilometers south of the town by the property's owner.

According to Zurbrigk, the animal was missing its anus, tongue, eyes and jaws, displaying perfectly cauterized incisions. It was a cow about to give birth and in perfect health. The fetus remained inside it.

According to the livestock farmer: "Aliens were involved, without a doubt. This has been going for over 20 years and no one has offered any solutions. They must remove the organs aboard the spacecraft, because there was nothing strange to be found around the animal. One can also see that they must throw the animals from their craft, because they land with their legs backward."

He added that other animals avoid coming within 50 meters of the mutilated cow. "These cases are classic. I don't know how dogs are aware of them and come no closer."

He expressed surprise that no serious investigation had been conducted in this regard. "It's better that no investigation is performed than to do what they did years ago: put the blame on the red-muzzled mouse. Mice don't eat meat, for starters, and they don't exist. We have no doubt here that extraterrestrial beings are involved."

Detectada la cuarta onda gravitacional

La colaboración entre los observatorios LIGO (EE UU) y Virgo (Europa) ha hecho posible la  detección de una onda gravitacional, una distorsión del espacio-tiempo, por cuarta vez. La observación se produjo el pasado 14 de agosto y se relaciona con los momentos finales de la fusión de dos agujeros negros con masas alrededor de 31 y 25 veces la del sol, ubicados a unos 1.800 millones de años luz de distancia.

Colombia: UFO Present at the Calbuco Eruption?

The Calbuco Volcano (in Chile) began erupting on April 22 [2017] sending aloft a plume of gas and ash over 15 kilometers tall.

A video shows the exact moment of this brutal eruption and also shows an image that remains a mystery to this day.

According to the Gran Epoca website, it could be an unidentified flying object (UFO).

The recording was made public on the very same day as the eruption by Daniela Soto Toledo and it has had over four million views since then.

The surrounding areas affected by this eruption, such as La Ensenada, were covered with over forty centimeters of ash, which reached as far as Villa La Angostura, Bariloche and San Martin de los Andes in Argentina.

The Sun's Sudden Burst of Activity Puzzles Scientists

The past month has seen a startling increase in activity by the Sun with four powerful X-class solar flares recorded; including one that measured as a X9.3, the strongest since 2005. Coronal mass ejections (CME) – huge arcs of plasma that erupt from the Sun's surface – interfered with GPS, and high-frequency radio transmissions, and generated spectacular aurora displays. But, in addition to the sudden intensity of these events, this recent burst of activity has left scientists scratching their heads.

Mexico: More on the Acayucan "Lights"



Mexico: More on the Acayucan "Lights"
By Scott Corrales

The following is a brief transcription of a presentation by Roberto Montalvo of the Diario Vanguardia newspaper on the Expediente Punto Cero radio show hosted by Yohanan Díaz Vargas.

Roberto Montalvo says the following: "Between 8;30 and 9:30 pm the 911 line received phone calls requesting help from the manager of Rancho "El Sinaí" - a ranch occupied by at least three or four families. To be more specific, the ranch is located on the Acayucan Highway and is halfway along, so to speak. In this regard there is a video in which this gentleman describes a little of what was experienced by these families. He says they witnessed the descent of a light, a yellowish-white light, and at that moment, the entire household went outside to see what was going on. They stepped outside with flashlights and shone their lights on it. They said the unidentified flying object was behind a mango tree, and that's what prompted them to call the police. They state that the light was visible, but it practically vanished - the object vanished behind a mango tree. The property is quite extensive, and when the naval police arrived, they conducted a search that yielded no results. However, there must have been something to account for the secrecy. When the naval police conducted their search, they were afraid. A lone policeman was sent ahead with his rifle and shouted back, "Hey! come with me!" and they set off as if to ambush someone. But that's exactly what happened, what was said by the owner - I mean the manager, sorry - of Rancho "El Sinaí" located in Congregación Hidalgo."

Acayucan is located at 17.9492° N, 94.9146° W in the state of Veracruz, which has an extensive history of UFO sightings and encounters with non-human entities.



The following cases are abstracted from INEXPLICATA: UFOs IN LATIN AMERICA AND SPAIN:

On October 2, 1965, a fourteen year old girl in the city of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, ran away screaming in fright when a flying disk some twenty feet in diameter dropped out the heavens to hover directly over while issuing a soft, whistling sound. The object was surrounded by multicolored lights that appeared to dangle from it. After this daytime apparition, the object was seen over the same city again at night.

Between 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. on May 7, 1967, the Mexican states of Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Hidalgo, Veracruz were visited by a veritable celestial armada of UFOs: at least twenty individual blue, yellow and red lights flew in formation over the heads of thousands of bewildered onlookers. The formation was spearheaded by a colossal red saucer and leisurely appeared to be following a northwesterly course. Newspapers in these four states carried the story but no photographs of the formation. A similar occurrence took place on August 6, 1967, when the citizens of Poza Rica, Veracruz, were treated to the sight of several "waves" of unidentified flying objects -- each wave having its own color -- as they flew overhead to become lost over the Gulf of Mexico.

A year later, on September 18, 1968, Antonio Nieto-- a cab driver plowing the main avenue of the city of Coatepec -- thought that an otherwise slow night was coming to an end when he pulled over to pick up a fare, or so he thought: his would-be passenger turned out to be a black-clad figure with glowing hands and enormous cat-like eyes that glowed eerily in the taxi's lights as it stood on the curb. The terrified cab driver stepped on the gas and put as much distance as he could between himself and the frightful apparition.

As chance would have it, he ran into a fellow cabdriver who had also been hailed by the nightmarish apparition. Leaving one cab behind, both men set off in the other vehicle and went in search of a local journalist, who accompanied them to the spot where the improbable creature had last been seen. Their effort was rewarded by a third encounter with the entity, which now held in its glowing hands a crystal wand that emanated a radiance that hurt the eyes. A staff writer for Mexico City's Excelsior noted that in spite of the ufonauts' vaunted ability to cross space, they encountered the same difficulty as Earthlings when it came to hailing a cab.

High Strangeness could also be found in the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. On February 17, 1969, an unknown animal washed up on Veracruzan shores at a location known locally as "El Palmar de Susana" between the fishing communities of Tecolutla and Hautla. The authorities were dumbfounded by their find: the creature's head weighed approximately a ton, measuring 6 feet across and 4 feet from top to bottom. A 9- foot long “beak” that projected from the skull startled scientists who at first thought they were dealing with a decomposing whale carcass. The creature's hide was described as "wooly" and resistant to all manner of knives, machetes, axes and saws. Biologists Sergio García, Martín Contreras and Daniel Yutch were entrusted with studying the cryptid without reaching any conclusive results. According to Dr. Rafael Lara Palmeros, the University of California purchased the mystery remains, and their final whereabouts are equally enigmatic.

Mexico: UFO Supposedly Lands in Acayucan

***The alleged UFO landed near Congregación Hidalgo in the Municipality of Acayucan***

Newsroom/ San Andres Tuxtla, Veracruz - The sighting of an alleged unidentified flying object (UFO) gained traction on social media last night. The information was published on several groups and social networks within a matter of hours. Some news sites also shared the information.



Residents of Congregación Hidalgo reportedly saw a UFO descending in the vicinity of the Monte Sinaí ranch before approaching the community. The citizenry and Marcelo Arias, owner of the premises, alerted elements of the Secretariat of Public Safety (SSP) and the Naval Police.

Randulfo Urbano noted that his niece Maribel Trichi remarked about having seen "a light on the moon" which later descended.

Municipal agent Elulalio Trichi Morales told him it was quite possible that the sighting had taken place next to a pond at Monte Sinaí.



The manager of the "Sinaí" ranch informed the authorities and the media that an unidentified flying object had fallen in the area. He saw it as a large light that came out of the sky, being unable to identify it for what it was. Elements of the naval police reported to the scene along with reporters who testified to the story given by residents of the ranch, claiming to have seen something "fall" out of the sky.

An effort was made to light up the object with a flashlight as it lost itself among the trees, yet others preferred to remain in their homes, frightened by the situation.

Reports were also received of lights seen in other municipalities in the State's southern area. Images were shared on Facebook, allegedly taken by users of that social network, in the municipalities of Catemaco, San Andrés, San Juan Evangelista y Sayula, where lights were also visible.

The Enigmatic "Devil's Letter", Translated

On August 11, 1676, sister Maria Crocifissa della Concezione, a Benedictine nun with the Palma di Montechiaro convent in Italy, was found unconscious in her room, her face smeared with ink, with an undecipherable letter written in an unknown script clutched in her hand. Although she did not remember the origin of the letter, nor could she and her sisters decode the cryptic writing on it, they concluded that Sister Maria had survived a battle with Satan, having refused to sign a letter written by the demon denouncing her faith.

NASA Reports the Flow Rate of Glaciers in West Antarctic has Increased

A recently-published study from NASA has revealed that glaciers in West Antarctica's Marguerite Bay have increased their flow rate, speeding up by up to 25 percent, an event that has accelerated ice loss in the region from 2 to 3 meters (7 to 10 feet) per year to 10 meters (33 feet). Prior to 2008, the flow rates of the four affected glaciers had been stable for two decades, but a major calving event in 1989 left the bay with little to no ice shelf, leaving them with only grounded ice on dry land -- a precarious position for its potential to affect sea level rise.

HOAX: The Corrientes Humanoid

HOAX: The Corrientes Humanoid

As could well be expected, the photo of the humanoid entity supposedly photographed by police before it took a plunge into the Paraná River has turned out to be less than meets the eye.

Argentina's Orbita Cero Mendoza reported in its blog that the CIFAD center of the province of Corrientes had "uncovered the fraudulent nature of the video" from which the image was taken.

The image had a viral effect on social media and the Internet at large. It turns out to be a clip from the horror movie "O.V.N.I."

Orbita Cero Mendoza gives us the following information, which is translated below:

"Production company Decar Films reports that the Spanish independent film "O.V.N.I." is the story of an incredible experience recorded by four people who went to a forest in Robledo de Chavela to shoot a documentary on the UFO phenomenon. Their cameras picked up something unusual. The screenplay was written and directed by Diego Carballo & Daniel Carlón, starring Peio Arzak, Sergio Torres, Diego Carballo and Daniel Carlón. The CIFAD report not only highlights the spurious nature of the Parque Mitre alien, but also the viral effect it exerted [on the Internet]
."

Finding the party responsible for the hoax, says the blog, will be up to CIFAD. They also suggest the possibility that this might be part of some sort of "psychosocial experiment" which could be even more disquieting.

This brings to an end the story of the Corrientes Humanoid.

The CIFAD video is available at: https://youtu.be/yzFgr1X34_w

We may have a Larger Carbon Budget Available to deal with Global Warming than Originally Anticipated

A new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience has found that the goal of the Paris climate accord of keeping global warming levels below 2ºC (3.6ºF) may be easier to achieve than originally anticipated, allowing humanity a much larger carbon budget to work with. One of the major reasons certain parties have rejected the Paris Accord was the perceived difficulty in attaining that goal, but this new finding, if correct, should help encourage more action in regards to what we need to do to curtail global warming.

Steampunk Space Probes: Inspiration for NASA's Next Venus Probe came from 2,300-Year-Old Antikythera Computer

To say the environment on the surface of Venus is extreme might be viewed as an understatement by some: the hottest planet in the Solar System's air cooks at a scorching 462ºC (864ºF), under crushing atmospheric pressure that is 92 times greater than Earth's -- and that's not counting the corrosive effects of the sulphuric acid lacing the clouds. The result is an environment that severely limits the lifespan of manmade probes sent there, that are typically measured in timescales of mere hours, as opposed to the years-long missions enjoyed by Mars rovers.

Argentina: Further Detials on the Parque Mitre "Alien"

Argentina: Further Details on The Parque Mitre "Alien"

[Editor's note: News items of this sort are titillating and often disappointing. Approach the subject matter with caution. Updates will be published as they appear.]

On Tuesday, September 13, the Argentinean media published the story of an event occurring in Parque Mitre, where a group of police officers attached to the 4th sheriff's office reported to the area where a group of teenagers reported the strange behavior of an "individual" prowling the surroundings.


When police cruiser 612 arrived on the scene to make contact with this alleged person, they were able to see a strange being that was immediately photographed with a cellphone camera. When police officers tried to approach the 'extraterrestrial being', they said it escaped, jumping into the water and vanishing from sight immediately.

This isn't the first time that beings of extraterrestrial origin have been photographed in Argentina, a country that appears to be a 'hotspot' for alien encounters and contact.



What is striking about the police report concerning the being's behavior is that it leaped into the water, leading us to believe that could be perfectly deployed under the sea, from which many people have seen UFOs emerging.

The photograph is of very high quality. We can perfectly make out the humanoid details - it is a bipedal being, without any apparent clothing, with eyes characteristic of the 'tall Greys' and with good musculature, possibly developed in our gravity. One could suppose this being has lived on our planet for many years to develop such muscles.

We are sharing this image so you can draw your own conclusions from what appears to be seemingly irrefutable evidence.
