Cuba 'sonic weapon' audio recording released Posted on Saturday, 14 October, 2017 | 10 comments The US recently expelled Cuban diplomats over the attacks. Image Credit: U.S. Department of State A clip of the high-pitched sound that US diplomats have been hearing in Cuba has been uploaded online. The phenomenon, which has targeted embassy personnel in Havana and sparked a breakdown of international relations between Cuba and the United States, was first made public in August. Thought to involve the use of sonic weapons, the attacks have been directly targeting the hotel rooms of US diplomats and have induced a range of symptoms that include hearing loss, dizziness, balance problems, visual complaints, headache, fatigue, cognitive issues and difficulty sleeping. Now for the first time, an actual audio recording of the ear-splitting, high-pitched noise that the victims have been subjected to has been uploaded on to YouTube. When played through regular speakers at normal volume the audio is completely harmless, but during the attacks themselves the victims would have been blasted with these sounds at extreme volume. According to reports, the recording consists of around 20 different frequencies blended together. While the US State Department has not confirmed whether or not the clip is authentic, it has suggested that the Cuban government knows more about the mystery than it is letting on. "We believe that the Cuban government could stop the attacks on our diplomats," said White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Your daily dose of cryptids, unexplained phenomena, eyewitness encounters, paranormal activity, alien beings, UFOs...the best in alternative and cryptozoology news Saturday, October 14, 2017 Weekend 2 Cents: 'SlenderGumby' Being -- Mystery Cat in Mississippi -- Pope Warns of 'Demonic Seduction' 'SlenderGumby' Being The following was posted at National Cryptid Society . Honestly, I don't know who runs this site...post was forwarded to me: Location: Boca Raton, Florida Date: August 14, 15 & 16 2017 “I saw something reminiscent of slender man. Obviously slenderman is a creepy pasta but this isn’t slender man. There’s a farm behind my house, separated by a canal. The farm stretches maybe about 1000 feet back before it hits a tree line. A couple weeks ago, I was eating dinner and was staring out at the farm. It was maybe 20 minutes until nightfall. I saw what looked like a really tall, gray version of “Gumby” walk out of the tree line, take two really large lunges, then disappear back into the tree line. It was much too tall to be a person. It was flat but its legs bended in a way that looked like a plank bending. Like how a piece of wood bows when weight is put on it but springs back up when the weight is taken off. Its body, from where I could see it, was rigid. It didn’t look flexible aside from the legs and the limbs were fairly wide The next night, at the same time, the same exact thing happened except my parents were with me. It walked on two legs but it was more like lunges or arching steps than human walking. I asked them if they saw that and they just said “saw what?” Then it happened AGAIN the third night. So either my body is giving me random hallucinations in sync with my body’s time clock or there’s some weird Slendergumby demon living on the farm behind my house. I haven’t been home much recently so I haven’t been able to look for it again but if I’m able to. I haven’t seen whatever it was since those three times and was unable to get a photo of it due to how far away it was. Its movements and stride were consistently the same all three days and it happened at the same time each night. I’ve yet to venture to the farm to look at the area that I saw it, but when I do, I’ll take photos of anything that looks interesting or out of the ordinary. This was in the middle of a very populated city so seeing something this outlandish in a human heavy area was quite strange.

Pope Warns of 'Demonic Seduction' (Vatican Radio) Only Christ crucified will save us from the demons that make us "slide slowly into worldliness", saving us also from the "stupidity" that St. Paul talks about to the Galatians, and from seduction. This was central message of the homily of Pope Francis at his Mass, Friday morning, at the Santa Marta residence in the Vatican. He was reflecting on the episode in Luke’s Gospel where Jesus casts out a demon, which some people interpret as through power of the devil. The Pope said the Lord asks us be watchful in order not to enter into temptation. This is why a Christians have to be awake, watchful and careful like a sentinel. Jesus was not narrating a parable but was stating a truth, i.e when the unclean spirit comes out of a man, he roams about in abandoned places looking for refuge and not finding any, decides to return to where he came from, where the freed man lives. Hence the demon decides to bring in "seven other spirits worse than him.” Pope Francis emphasized the word “worse”, saying it has much force in the passage because the demons enter quietly.

The man, 28, who was not named, went into cardiac arrest Oct. 5 after the fish jumped in his mouth, blocking his throat. However, paramedics were able to clear his airway after drawing the sole free with forceps. Matt Harrison, an emergency responder for the South Western Ambulance Service, said he was on the scene in under two minutes. When he arrived on the dimly lit pier where the man was fishing, a friend of the man’s was already performing CPR.

David Sluder captured video footage of the cat from his vehicle while in a fast-food restaurant line in Hernando. In the footage Sluder posted to Facebook, he says, "Man, I'm 100 yards away from this cat right now. I don't know what kind of cat it is… but this thing is huge." The video has gone viral (more than 5,000 shares), and the mystery creature has been unofficially identified as everything from an oversized house cat to a mountain lion to a panther. The latter two seem unlikely given that there have been no confirmed sightings of mountain lions in Mississippi in more than 100 years. There are no known panthers in the state, either.

What made the election cycle different was that all of these changes to the information ecosystem had made it possible to develop weird businesses around fake news. Some random website posting aggregated news about the election could not drive a lot of traffic. But some random website announcing that the Pope had endorsed Donald Trump definitely could. The fake news generated a ton of engagement, which meant that it spread far and wide. A few days before the election Silverman and fellow BuzzFeed contributor Lawrence Alexander traced 100 pro–Donald Trump sites to a town of 45,000 in Macedonia . Some teens there realized they could make money off the election, and just like that, became a node in the information network that helped Trump beat Clinton. Whatever weird thing you imagine might happen, something weirder probably did happen. Reporters tried to keep up, but it was too strange. As Max Read put it in New York Magazine, Facebook is “like a four-dimensional object, we catch slices of it when it passes through the three-dimensional world we recognize.” No one can quite wrap their heads around what this thing has become, or all the things this thing has become. “Not even President-Pope-Viceroy Zuckerberg himself seemed prepared for the role Facebook has played in global politics this past year,” Read wrote. Facebook isn’t as much an information sharing network as it is an emotion spreading network.

Braod Torgeson is an author: his books (to my taste) are a bit hit and miss, but he makes a good point here. The First Moral Majority was overtly Christian, and fell apart because of (ahem) money and adultery. The second moral majority is secular, its megachurches are televised awards ceremonies, and it is falling apart because of sexual predation. And both were evil. I am old enough to remember when Moral Majority 1.0 visibly fell apart. It was when all the televangelists got busted for money and sex scandals. These guys had been ramping up their high-dudgeon fire-and-brimstone sermonizing, from the 70s through the 80s. Then the lid blew off, because Bakker and Swaggart and others couldn’t keep their fingers out of the collection plate, nor their zippers zipped. They were just hypocrites: in it for the pussy, the cash, and the prestige. There was nothing holy about any of them. Wolves in sheeps’ clothing. I suspect we may now be witnessing the fall of Moral Majority 2.0—and for eerily similar reasons too. This time, the pulpits are over at the secular megachurches of the entertainment awards shows: all those pious celebrities with their proper lapel pins, talking de rigueur noise about feminism, gay rights, racial equality, and compassion—the media there to eagerly provide the microphones, while fundraiser cash flows like nectar to the correct politicians and the anointed activism committees. Except, the whole thing is a put-on. A very expensive, elaborate sham. This game we’re witnessing—and its unraveling—has played out in civilization after civilization. Era after era. There is absolutely nothing new about any of it. Merely the theme and content of the popular doctrine has shifted. The mode remains eternal: the ones who make the biggest show of their virtue—by whatever standards have become trendy, for the time—are usually the ones who have the biggest sins to hide. And so the grand, gold-leaf-laminated, holier-than-thou entertainment media political complex, gradually begins to fall apart. Beneath the weight of its own sanctimony, excess, and double-standards. Too many young women and young men made to do horrible things for the gratification of horrible people, while the so-called guardians and truth-tellers were willfully blind and mute, handsomely paid off, or made to cower in silence. In case you are not aware of the scandal that is Hollywood , a quite secular author, John Ringo, explains how it works, using an analogy of the cheerleader and the need to put out for the football team. The cost of being in the “in” crowd is moral corruption. Ringo has seen this up close and personal: he’s about my age and saw the nasty side of life in middle east and among the eurotrash far too young. And he is the father of daughters. Who he does not want despoiled. And when it’s her time to be the Varsity Cheerleader and some newbie freshman wimp is crying and sulking she tells her: Welcome to the bigs, sis. Now shut up and act. And when that cheerleader finds a convenient nerd target (herein played by… oh, choose the R target of choice) she makes his life hell. Because she can. And she has to get the rage out somehow. It’s all part of abuse syndrome, people. I’d wondered about it for some time but the ‘revelations’ about Harvey Weinstein just make it crystal clear. People who are subject to long-term abuse MUST find an outlet for the anger that bubbles in them all the time. They don’t, dare not for various reasons, lash out at their abusers. Think of children in abusive homes. How can they lash out at their parents who are abusing them? They are powerless. So they become bullies in turn. Conservatives are an easy target. OBVIOUSLY they are worse than the ‘good’ and ‘decent’ liberal men who talk about how important feminism is all the time. Then abuse them. Conservatives HAVE to be worse! They HAVE to be! It’s just not getting reported, just as the abuse they are subjected to by the Harvey Weinsteins of the world is not reported. And since the people around them are ‘their’ tribe, they must, for various psychological reasons, be ‘good’ or at least ‘better’ than the enemy tribe. This doesn’t mean there aren’t conservatives just as shitty as Harvey Weinstein. There probably are. But they are MUCH more likely to be outed by the news media. (Think of Newt Gingrich and divorcing his dying wife or for that matter the Access Hollywood tape. Interesting that name keeps coming up don’t you think?) Do you really think if a Republican senator was charged by a woman with groping her or masturbating into a plant, that the New York Times would kill the story? In that way the liberal bias in media can be considered a God send to conservatives and Republicans. It polices our ranks. It is a major weakness for the Democrats and liberals because it refuses to do so. Thus you get the Harvey Weinsteins, the Weiners, the Spitzers who are all ‘protected’ classes until they can’t be protected anymore. So do liberal actresses and models and all the rest really think conservative men are the worst human beings in the world? Yes. Yes, they do. Because they have to work every day with some of the ACTUALLY worst human beings in the world. And they have to believe conservative men are worse. Otherwise, there’s no point to being on the ‘good’ side. Thus when Donald Trump said some needlessly crass things and alleged to have groped women, they immediately saw in him not just Harvey (all the rest of the abusers in Hollywood High not to mention Billy ‘I did not rape that woman’ Clinton) but WORSE THAN HARVEY. Because Trump has to be worse. They can’t really be slaves to some of the most vile human beings on the face of the planet. Got news for you ladies: Yes, yes, you are. You enable them every day and by doing so you not only support the abusers, you directly or indirectly tell all the hurt new cheerleaders: Welcome to the bigs, sis. Now shut up and act. There are some temptations that are common to all. You send teenage boys and girls away on a camping trip — and you better expect romance to blossom if you are lucky: if you are unlucky there will be predation. In the entertainment industry there has been predation. The question then is: what happens to these women? What happens to these cheerleaders? Because they know that they did wrong: though they were predated upon, they feel the guilt. They want to return to righteousness: and in the time of Jesus this division was brutal. You can see this in the first passage, and again in the second. Luke 7:36-50 36 One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee’s house and took his place at the table. 37 And a woman in the city, who was a sinner, having learned that he was eating in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster jar of ointment. 38 She stood behind him at his feet, weeping, and began to bathe his feet with her tears and to dry them with her hair. Then she continued kissing his feet and anointing them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what kind of woman this is who is touching him — that she is a sinner.” 40 Jesus spoke up and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” “Teacher,” he replied, “Speak.” 41 “A certain creditor had two debtors; one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 When they could not pay, he canceled the debts for both of them. Now which of them will love him more?” 43 Simon answered, “I suppose the one for whom he canceled the greater debt.” And Jesus said to him, “You have judged rightly.” 44 Then turning toward the woman, he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has bathed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her sins, which were many, have been forgiven; hence she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.” 48 Then he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 But those who were at the table with him began to say among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” 50 And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.” Matthew 22:1-14 1 Once more Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying: 2 “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding banquet for his son. 3 He sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding banquet, but they would not come. 4 Again he sent other slaves, saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited: Look, I have prepared my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready; come to the wedding banquet.’ 5 But they made light of it and went away, one to his farm, another to his business, 6 while the rest seized his slaves, maltreated them, and killed them. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his troops, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city. 8 Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 9 Go therefore into the main streets, and invite everyone you find to the wedding banquet.’ 10 Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both good and bad; so the wedding hall was filled with guests. 11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe, 12 and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14 For many are called, but few are chosen.” What we are left with is that there is only one person who can ameliorate our sin, and that is God, for he is the person we always offend when we do evil. We are not invited or called because we are virtuous. We are called out of love. What we need to be is cleaned, clothed, and ready to celebrate as Christ returns. We are cleaned by the blood of Christ. We are clothed by the Spirit. And only in this way we can celebrate: otherwise we are fools, calling for our own deserved destruction. Some will hear this, though many are called, not all will listen. And here lies the paradox: our natural self wants to believe the pretty lies that we use to justify our actions. It is only by the work of the spirit of God that we can realise our state, and thus our need for Christ. Once chosen, we are preserved in Christ. But do not think that your good acts and religious piety can save you. It cannot. For you are fallen, and only God can rescue you. His way of doing this is Christ. Share this:

'There is no need for God' Dan Brown predicts a new scientific 'global consciousness' Religion has been around for thousands of years with many different kinds of religious beliefs scattered around the world. At the Frankfurt Book Fair, Mr. Brown said: "Christianity, Judaism, and Islam all share a gospel, loosely, and it's important that we all realise that. Our religions are much more similar than they are different. We will start to find our spiritual experiences through our interconnections with each other. Our need for that exterior god, that sits up there and judges us ... will diminish and eventually disappear." He goes on an predicts the emergence of ... "some form of global consciousness that we perceive and that becomes our divine". Most of these religions share common principles and the most common thing about all religions is the existence of a superior being that judges mortals and is the all-knowing creator of the universe. Religion has brought upon the world great and terrible wars, but some have practiced it for good and have tried to spread peace. But religion is becoming obsolete as we enter the most prominent age of science in centuries, the digital age. The digital age governs over humanity as time progresses and renowned author Dan Brown points out several things regarding the future of religion and computers. He believes that traditional religion will disappear and that God will be replaced by an artificial intelligence , a new religion created by machines. Will all religion disappear in the future?

This is a trick post? To see who listens to the sound?
We are hearing a recording that has been optimized for our human hearing range of about 20Hz-20kHz by computer hardware and software and not necessarily what may have occurred on site. We may even be, for example, hearing submultiples of the fundamental driving frequency. Further, the amplitudes, or intensity, of the sound or sounds may not be accurately represented in the recording. More definitive might have been using a trusted instrument having both more sensitive hearing and a far greater frequency response, a pet cat.
If i got this right, Castro made Cuba into worlds leader when it comes to things like this. Multi billion researches of worlds best scientists in USA or EU and even Russia or China, they could not manage to manipulate frequencies like Cubans did. It's a shame Where did the money go!
