Make a Faraday Cage Out of a Chip Bag and Hide from Surveillance

Google+ Big Brother is watching you. So are Big Boss, Big Google and Big Screen TVs. Is there any way to keep at least some of your electronic and digital life under the radar without spending a fortune? Can you afford a bag of chips (or crisps, as those who eat them while driving on the left side of the road call them)? A man in Australia built a Faraday cage to block electromagnetic fields using an empty snack bag and managed to evade his employer’s tracking system for six months by putting the company-issued GPS device in his crinkly Faraday cage. Not only did it work, he’d still be on the golf course if it weren’t for a brown-nosing office snitch. NPR reports that this modern-day Faraday is Tom Colella, a former electrician at Aroona P&T Pty Ltd in western Australia. “Former” because he was fired after an anonymous tipster told company management that he was playing golf when he should have been on the job. Puzzled as to how Colella evaded the sophisticated tracking system they had implemented, they caught him red-golf-glove-covered-handed with his GPS unit wrapped inside an empty bag of Twisties crunchy cheesy corn snacks. A check of their records showed six months of anomalies that translated to a half year of work-time golfing for Colella. He was fired and filed a lawsuit with Australia’s Fair Work Commission claiming unfair dismissal. Perhaps the electrician felt the company should have been impressed with his ingenuity. Invented by English scientist Michael Faraday in 1836, Faraday cages shield their contents from electrostatic charges and some types of electromagnetic radiation by acting as a conductor and distributing them around their exterior, protecting the insides from dangerous charges. Think tinfoil hat. It can also protect the outside from dangerous interior radiation … think microwave oven. And it can protect PDA devices from being tracked … think Tom Colella. The foil inside his Twisties bag shielded his PDA from being tracked. “As an experienced electrician, Mr Colella knew that this bag would work as a [Faraday] cage, thereby preventing the PDA from working properly — especially the provision of regular GPS co-ordinate updates. I note that Mr Colella’s supervisors knew that he placed his PDA in the foil bag and that they should have known the effect that this action would have on the PDA device. However, I can find no plausible explanation why Mr Colella would create a faraday cage around his PDA, except to obstruct the GPS collecting capacity of the device. Mr Colella appears to have been deliberately mischievous in acting in this manner.” People protected from a Tesla coil by a Faraday cage (double inventor score) As expected, Fair Work Commissioner Bernie Riordan ruled in favor of the employer. However, the Faraday-cage-out-of-a-chip-bag idea has been uncaged and will probably result in more work-time golf games, more lawsuits and an increase in the price of Twisties for this new feature. Do they make a bag of chips big enough to live inside? Costco?

Before Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, There Was Dan Q. Posin

Before Carl Sagan and Neil deGrasse Tyson, There Was Dan Q. Posin Skeptical Inquirer Volume 41.6, November/December 2017 In the 1950s and 1960s, the United States and the Soviet Union were engaged in a powerful rivalry. After World War II, both countries began stockpiling increasingly destructive nuclear weapons, and in 1957 the U.S.S.R. shocked the world by launching Sputnik I into Earth orbit, demonstrating that it had sufficient rocket power to deliver a nuclear weapon to Europe or North America. The Sputnik launch galvanized the United States, increasing the demand for scientists and putting much greater emphasis on the teaching of science and mathematics. Each new NASA launch was a national media event, and in 1962 President John F. Kennedy made his famous “We Choose to Go to the Moon” speech, setting the goal of sending an astronaut to the moon and back before the end of the 1960s. I am a product of that Cold War era. In the late 1950s, I was a young boy living in a suburb of Chicago. At school I practiced civil defense duck-and-cover drills in preparation for a nuclear attack, and at home I learned to use a soldering iron so that I could assemble a Heathkit shortwave radio. I taped newspaper clippings about satellites and rockets to the wall above my bed, and my parents bought me a home planetarium that projected the constellations onto the ceiling of my room. I also became a devoted fan of a DePaul University physics professor, Dan Q. Posin. Perched in front of our tiny black-and-white television, I watched this elfin mustachioed man prance around a barren television studio, telling fascinating stories about atoms, comets, galaxies, and space travel. Long before the era of computer graphics, Posin used his considerable skills as a sketch artist to illustrate his programs, and he made effective use of props and posters. His daughter Kathryn accurately described his manner as a cross between Groucho Marx and Albert Einstein, and he was frequently accompanied on set by his cat Minerva, named after the Roman goddess of wisdom. Posin was the writer and star of several educational television series, including Out of This World, The Universe Around Us , and Dr. Posin’s Giants , and his shows aired both nationally on the CBS television network and locally on WTTW, the Chicago public television affiliate. He wrote popular books to accompany his television shows, and I owned several of them. I still do. Long before Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, or Brian Cox, Dan Q. Posin was a very energetic popularizer of science who saw the power of television for education and inspiration. He played an important role in developing my interest in science, and he was a beloved figure for many other people my age. Back then, Watch Mr. Wizard was also on the air, and I have some memories of that show. But it was Posin’s programs and books that fueled my curiosity about space and science. Sadly, Posin’s story is largely lost to history, and it was not until many years later, when I began to research his life, that I discovered Posin was much more than the happy science teacher I saw on the screen. Difficult Beginnings Daniel Posin was born in 1909 in Russian Turkestan on the Caspian Sea, and in 1914 his parents fled in advance of the Russian Revolution. Unlike other areas of the Russian Empire, Jews of western Turkestan were allowed to own property and live relatively comfortably, but with the coming of the revolution, the future must have looked uncertain. As a result, the Posin family undertook a harrowing three-year trip across Asia, finally arriving in San Francisco in the bottom of a cattle ship. Having a knack for languages, Daniel quickly learned English and began to excel in school. He won a scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and went on to get a PhD in physics in 1935. By then, his father, who worked as a janitor, had died of tuberculosis, and Posin had stolen the heart of Frances “Patsy” Schweitzer, a graduate student in English who was dating a friend at the time. Daniel and Patsy’s marriage would last sixty-eight years until her death in 2002. After graduation, Posin worked as a teaching assistant at Berkeley for two years, and then—after teaching himself Spanish in just two weeks—he accepted a position at the University of Panama, where he taught physics and wrote textbooks in Spanish. 1 From there he had short teaching assignments at Montana State University and the Montana School of Mining. By then it was 1944 and World War II was well underway. As a result, Daniel, Patsy, and their two children went off to Massachusetts where Posin took a research position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology doing research on radar systems. North Dakota: A Beginning and an Ending After MIT, Posin took his first substantial teaching position at North Dakota Agricultural College (NDAC) (now North Dakota State University), where he would stay for nine years. While he was at NDAC, two important events happened: he started his television career, and he got fired. Dr. Posin on the set of his Chicago TV program. Posin’s broadcast debut came on June 1, 1953, when he appeared as Fargo, North Dakota’s, first television weather forecaster, “Dr. Dan the Weather Man.” The studio of WDAY-TV was built in a converted two-car garage, and when mice got into the transmitter, the station manager got a cat. In a move he would repeat on subsequent television shows, Posin tucked the cat under his coat so the two could appear together during the weather segment. His live broadcasts were done in front of a chalkboard weather map, and WDAY-TV colleagues remembered the popular weatherman’s humorous and dramatic on-camera style. At NDAC, Posin was professor and chair of the physics department, and, for many years, all was well. But in 1954, the president of the college, Fredric Hultz, unilaterally eliminated the geology department, setting off a chain of events that would become the state’s biggest news story. Posin was one of four professors who criticized President Hultz’s actions, arguing that the president had violated tenure and that the termination had come too late in the academic year for the dismissed geology professors to obtain other employment. In response, Hultz turned on the four outspoken professors, criticizing some of the articles they had published, which the professors pointed out was a violation of their academic freedom. The conflict grew, and at a particularly emotional meeting, Hultz rose and read a long prepared statement—later referred to as the “The Blast”—which stunned the assembled faculty members. When the president had finished speaking, Posin rose and said, “Did you call me vicious?” To which Hultz replied, “You got ears.” The controversy came to the attention of the State Board of Higher Education in late 1954, and early the next year the Board requested the immediate resignation of the four professors. Posin and the others refused to resign, and, soon after, President Hultz declared the four had “engaged in a course of conduct deliberately intended to interfere with, undermine, frustrate, and render ineffective the administration of the Agricultural College.” The professors were dismissed, subject to public hearings conducted in May of 1955. In the end, the State Board of Higher Education voted five-to-two to fire the professors. The four appealed to the State Supreme Court, but the court did not take up the case. I found no evidence that Posin ever spoke publicly about the NDAC controversy, but it must have been a very difficult experience. This episode occurred during a tense Cold War period, just after the peak of McCarthyism. A year earlier, thirty-six days of the Army-McCarthy hearings had been broadcast live on national television with an estimated eighty million people watching. During those hearings, Senator Joseph McCarthy made the following statement: The thing the American people can do is to be vigilant day and night to make sure they don’t have communists teaching the sons and daughters of America. Now, I realize that the minute anyone tries to get a communist out of a college, out of a university, there will be raised the phony cry that you’re interfering with academic freedom. I would like to emphasize that there is no academic freedom where a communist is concerned. President Hultz took advantage of the nation’s anti-communist fervor in his attacks on the four dissenting professors. He pointed out that two of the men were Canadians who had not applied for U.S. citizenship, and he singled out Posin in particular, suggesting he was a subversive due to his Russian heritage. The president insinuated that the professors were anti-American, and an anonymous telephone campaign spread the message to “Get rid of the four communist professors at NDAC.” I Have Been to the Village Daniel Posin was not a communist, but, as the episode in North Dakota suggests, he was a humanitarian and a man who was not afraid to speak up when he witnessed injustice. In August of 1945, while Posin was working as a researcher at MIT, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and like many nuclear physicists of his era, Posin felt a special sense of responsibility about the uses of atomic power. During the following summer, Albert Einstein wrote an appeal to scientists in the New York Times Sunday Magazine . Posin was particularly struck by this passage: Our representatives in New York, in Paris, or in Moscow depend ultimately on decisions made in the village square. To the village square we must carry the facts of atomic energy. From the village square must come America’s voice. 2 Einstein felt an especially strong moral obligation with respect to the bomb. His scientific work many years earlier had foreshadowed the prospect of enormous atomic power, and his actions led directly to America’s construction of an atomic bomb. In August of 1939, Einstein wrote a letter warning President Franklin Roosevelt that recent scientific advances had raised the possibility of using uranium to create a new, devastatingly powerful weapon. Knowing that Nazi Germany was engaged in uranium research, Einstein urged Roosevelt to support an expanded atomic research program in the United States. Roosevelt was moved by the letter, which ultimately led to the Manhattan Project and the creation of an atomic weapon. Later, when it became clear that the German program had failed, Einstein felt a sense of regret about writing to Roosevelt—regret that was greatly amplified when the United States dropped two nuclear devices on Japan. He was a life-long pacifist, and he felt his only justification for writing Roosevelt had been the fear that Germany would be successful in building an atomic weapon. As a result, following the war, Einstein helped form the Emergency Committee of Atomic Scientists (ECAS), whose goal was the containment of nuclear power through a system of world government. By the time he read the passage above, Posin had arrived at North Dakota Agricultural College, and he realized there was an important role he could play. He was in complete agreement with Einstein and the goals of the ECAS, and as a talented science communicator, he was in an excellent position to take the message of peace to the village square. Starting in October of 1946, Posin went out on the road. He developed a speech on the two uses of atomic energy: peaceful and destructive. The life of Marie Curie, whose discoveries led to the development of life-saving medical treatments, was an important part of the peaceful side of the story, but he also covered the destructive power of the atom bomb and the dangers of radiation poisoning. Like Einstein, Posin argued that a system of world government (“a supra-national political organization”) was necessary to contain nuclear weapons and ensure peace. He ended his talks with an appeal for donations to the ECAS. Between 1946 and 1948, Posin gave his “atomic talk” two hundred times throughout the country. He spoke in community halls, at parent teacher association meetings, and in public parks. After hearing him speak, people of very modest means contributed money, which Posin sent off to the ECAS. His audiences encouraged him to give the talk as often as possible, and people volunteered to organize repeat performances. Posin described his experiences in his 1948 book, I Have Been to the Village , for which Einstein wrote an introduction: Dr. D. Q. Posin’s book bears eloquent witness to the sincere and self-sacrificing way in which the best among the scientists try to fulfill their duty towards the community. This sense of duty is simply due to the fact that, as a result of their profession, scientists are acutely conscious of the perilous position in which all of mankind has been placed by the new means of mass-destruction. In his attack on the dissenting professors, NDAC president Fredric Hultz urged Posin to stop giving his talks, suggesting that they were anti-American. Once again, Posin ignored Hultz. Ultimately, Posin would give his atomic energy talk over three thousand times between 1946 and 1995. He spoke to groups throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, England, and France. Success in Chicago After his dismissal in North Dakota, Posin was hired as a professor of physics at DePaul University in Chicago, a post he would hold for eleven years. It was in Chicago that he achieved his greatest success as a public intellectual and educator. The Posin family arrived in Chicago in 1956, and by February of 1958, he was a local celebrity with a profile in Newsweek magazine and his face plastered on the sides of Chicago Transit Authority buses. An April 1958 article in the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper identified Posin’s show The Universe Around Us as an important ingredient in the financial success of WTTW, the local public television station. One of the many fan letters he received was from a ten-year-old girl who had saved a dollar from her quarter-a-week allowance to send to Posin: “I hope this will help keep your program on the air.” While in Chicago, Posin would win six Emmy awards for educational programming. In addition to teaching at DePaul and starring on television, Posin ran a lecture series for high school and junior high school students at Chicago’s popular Museum of Science and Industry and held training sessions for teachers of high school science. He wrote articles for local and national newspapers and magazines, and he pioneered distance education by teaching an early televised course at DePaul. Also, during the Chicago years, Posin wrote several of his best-known science books, including Dr. Posin’s Giants and Life Beyond Our Planet . It is hard to imagine how he did all this and still held down a job and maintained his family life, but somehow he did. Back to California By 1967, both Posin’s son, Dan Q. Posin Jr., and his daughter, Kathryn, were grown, and he took a position in the physics department at San Francisco State University. For Posin this was a return to his beginnings as a young boy in San Francisco and a college student at UC Berkeley. It was also the place where he and Patsy met. In 1968, Posin worked with KQED television making a series of half-hour television programs called Science in the Age of Space that were designed to augment the sixth-grade science program in the California schools. In 1970, he achieved a breakthrough when he produced a series of five programs broadcast for the first time in color over the National Educational Television network. The topic of the programs was the possibility of life in other solar systems, and they featured performances by his daughter, Kathryn, who was by then a professional modern dancer. Kathryn’s role on the show was described as “illustrating space events and findings.” In California, Posin’s life would once again bump up against the tide of history, as he returned to humanitarian causes. By coincidence, Posin arrived in San Francisco during the Summer of Love. It was the height of sixties counterculture revolution, and pictures of the physics professor from that era show a man—still sporting his trademark mustache—but now framed by a longer salt-and-pepper pageboy cut. He continued to give his talks on atomic energy for another thirty years, and in March of 1969 he organized a “Day of Concern” at San Francisco State University (SFSU) to express “care over national policy of using scientific knowledge in weaponry and space projects.” In 1973, as the Vietnam War dragged on, Posin founded “Professors for Peace,” a group aimed at ending the war in southeast Asia and war in general. “If there is definitely injustice, wars are sometimes necessary,” he said in a newspaper interview. “But we still have to work towards building non-violent alternatives.” Finally, he brought his two primary causes together in a popular course at SFSU called “Science and Human Values.” In 1974, the class organized an effort to send 250 boxes of food and clothing to the victims of a hurricane in Honduras. I found this online comment from a former student: Dr. Posin was one of my professors at San Francisco State University. I still read his books, 30 years later, and have very vivid images of him lecturing. As a graduate student I got to build some of the RF and electronic devices that were utilized by other students performing research under Dr. Posin in many diverse areas, from plant biology to magnetocardiography. Then it all came together in his class “Science and Human Values.” What an amazing man! I feel fortunate to have known him. Posin would not retire from teaching until 1996, at which point he was eighty-seven. While at SFSU, he won the James T. Grady Award of the American Chemical Society for “interpreting chemistry for the public” and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize six times. After Posin retired from SFSU, he and Patsy moved to a house next door to their son and his family in New Orleans. By that time, Dan Jr. was a law professor at Tulane University and the father of three. In a profile of Dan Sr. that appeared in the New Orleans Times-Picayune he said, “We’re here because it’s about time we got to know our grandchildren.” Patsy was raised as a Methodist, but as an adult she adopted the Bahá’í faith. Posin had always been resolutely nonreligious. Kathryn remembered having no religious background at all and going to a synagogue for the first time when a friend dragged her to one when she was a teenager in Chicago. At the end of his life, Posin began to show the signs of a late-onset dementia, and Kathryn said her father became more open to his wife’s faith saying, “I want to go where she’s going.” Patsy would die in 2002, and Daniel Q. Posin died less than a year later at the age of ninety-three. Meeting Einstein When I began to research Posin’s life, I looked for his children and learned that Dan Q. Posin Jr. had died in 2006 but that Kathryn Posin was still alive and still dancing. Kathryn is a choreographer and director of Kathryn Posin Dance, a well-known company in New York. She also teaches dance and choreography at New York University. A few years ago, I spent a very enjoyable afternoon in her NoHo studio, which is in the same building where the artist Chuck Close has his studio. Dan Q. Posin's daughter, Kathryn Kathryn was effusive about her father. She referred to him as “Pop,” and she was obviously pleased that I was taking interest in his career. She kept his Emmy awards on display and had held on to old tapes of his programs and other memorabilia. She said he was a wonderful parent—as was her mother—and he had been very proud of her as a dancer. She had many fond memories of appearing on his television programs. Kathryn told me a story about the Posin family driving from Fargo, North Dakota, to Princeton, New Jersey, to meet Albert Einstein. Over the years, Einstein and Posin would become friends, united by their work for peace and against nuclear war, but this was their first face-to-face meeting. The eminent scientist had written an introduction to Posin’s book, and the Posins traveled east to thank him in person. When they finally arrived, Einstein was sailing with his daughter, and the Posins waited outside for him to return. Kathryn was just six years old, and this was the first time she had ever seen her father nervous. Recently Kathryn had been practicing dance in the basement of the Posin’s home in Fargo, where her father stored a number of extra copies of his book on the Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev, the inventor of the periodic table of elements. A picture of the rather hairy-looking Mendeleev appeared on the cover of the book, and when the bushy-headed Einstein finally appeared, Kathryn ran toward him with arms outstretched shouting, “Mendeleev! Mendeleev!” Kathryn remembered that Einstein laughed graciously at her mistake, but somehow she became aware that she had embarrassed her father, prompting her to run away and hide under a nearby car. She still remembered the smell of gasoline. Eventually the group recovered from this dramatic start, and they had a very pleasant visit. I would love to know what the two men talked about on that day. They were both scientists but with very different talents. Two immigrants to the United States from different parts of the world, both with lives that were touched by history. But two men who, nonetheless, shared very similar goals. As much as Posin might have been in awe of Einstein, I like to think that Einstein, in his own way, might have been equally admiring of Posin. Notes Posin donated the royalties from his Spanish textbooks to a scholarship program at the University of Panama. This article was evidently reprinted in a pamphlet that was sent out to many scientists. Posin reported reading this passage in the pamphlet rather than the New York Times article.

Agartha, A Subterranean World Inside Our Planet, Confirmed By Top Secret Nazi Maps And Documents

« Previous - Next » Agartha, A Subterranean World Inside Our Planet, Confirmed By Top Secret Nazi Maps And Documents Us humans know a lot about the surface of the Earth. We've drilled oil rigs into it, mapped it, and studied it so many times that we can pretty much find out anything about the Earth from some database out there. However, we know very little about the inside of the Earth, a fact that the Nazis think that they have a lead into. Map of Neuschwabenland Nazi maps were recently uncovered that brought up questions as to whether the Earth is partially hollow and inhabited by lifeforms that we might have never seen. There are even stories of these Nazis who explored the polar regions of the Earth and going so far as to create secret bases in Antarctica.

Related Articles The Maps Lie: Children Being Taught With Maps From The 1500's. Why? Beyond the Nazis, many other researchers have discovered and published material regarding Operation Highjump and Admiral Byrd's journeys in which technologically-advanced airships and UFO were believed to be seen flying around, and even aggressively engaging with them. In addition, a top-secret map found in a U-Boat depicts many secret passages that were used by the U-boats to explore unknown and mysterious underground regions. All these maps indicated that the center of the Earth is hollow. But why have the Nazis kept this a secret for so long? Such a fact would be of great curiosity to man if it were found true.

IN CASE OF DANGER DESTROY FIRST! Printed for the Military Navy in an edition of 1300 copies at the special laboratory of the KZ Dachau. January 1944. Perhaps all this was merely a propaganda scheme made for the war. After all, the Nazis wanted to establish themselves as a master race, and making it look like they had access to underground U-Boat tunnels and that they could communicate with supernatural things such as UFOs would make them look very dominant if that U-Boat were to be captured by the enemy. This map shows us the main continent of this hemisphere named Liberia. The main ocean here again is also the Valkarian Ocean. On the lower part of the map the city of Shambala is depicted. The Tibetan Monks believe that the City of Shambala is not on our surface but on the inside of the Earth. This map of the Inner Earth shows us the actual position of Shambala confirming the actual existence of this mythical place. Or maybe the Nazis wanted to keep this information secret to us in case they ever needed to use it for military needs in the future. Think about it: having access to secret underground tunnels could lead to more efficient and safe travel over enemy waters. This is a letter from a German U Boat crewman of U-209. He says in the letter that U-209 commanded by Heinrich Brodda made it to the Inner Earth of Agharta and that they wouldn't be coming back. Translation: Dear old comrade, This message will be a surprise to you. The U Boat 209 has made it, the Earth is HOLLOW! Dr. Haushofer and Hess were right. The whole crew is doing well, but they cannot come back. We are no prisoners. I am certain, that this message will reach you, it is the last contact with the U 209. We will meet again comrade. I am worried about the people that have to live on the surface, since the Fuehrer is gone. God bless our Germany always. With hearty greetings, Karl Unger Whether the Earth is hollow or not, the Nazis have left us quite a puzzle to deal with.

Tomb of Jesus is much older than thought - Unexplained Mysteries

Tomb of Jesus is much older than thought Posted on Wednesday, 29 November, 2017 | 9 comments The tomb appears to be much older then previously believed. Image Credit: CC BY 2.0 israeltourism The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem is now thought to date back more than 1,700 years. The tomb, which many believe to be the final resting place of Jesus himself, was previously thought to date back around 1,000 years to the time of the Crusades. Now though, new tests carried out by researchers at the National Technical University of Athens have revealed that the Church of the Holy Sepulchre actually dates back to around 345 CE. Although the findings do not prove that Jesus really was buried at the site, the date seems to conform to the belief that the Romans built a monument on the site around 300 years after his death under the rule of Constantine, the first Christian emperor of Rome. "This is a very important finding because it confirms that it was, as historically evidenced, Constantine the Great responsible for cladding bedrock of the tomb of Christ with the marble slabs in the edicule," said Antonia Moropoulou, chief scientific coordinator of the tomb's restoration works.

Mystery Surrounds Underwater Castle Found in Turkey

Mystery Surrounds Underwater Castle Found in Turkey

Google+ Earlier this month, a team of archaeologists in eastern Turkey claimed to have discovered the ruins of of a 3,000-year-old castle under the waters of Lake Van. The castle is said to measure over a kilometer in circumference and has cut stone walls standing as high as three or four meters in some places. Diving team leader Tahsin Ceylan was on the dive which found the ruins and told The Daily Sabah that “there was a rumor that there might be something under the water but most archaeologists and museum officials told us that we won’t find anything.” Well, they did find something – something incredible – but just what exactly the structure is and who built it remains a mystery. Lake Van is the largest lake in Turkey. When the news of this discovery broke this month, headlines were quick to proclaim that a “ 3,000-year-old underwater castle ” was found in Turkey since researchers from Van Yüzüncü Yıl University claim the structure likely was built by the Iron Age Urartu civilization who lived in the Armenian Highlands as far back as the third or second millennium BC. It turns out, though, that archaeologists have been aware of ruins in the Lake Van area since at least the 1960s. These ruins were believed around 900-1,000 years old and belong to one of the medieval Turkish kingdoms, however, not a 3000-year-old culture. Several archaeologists not involved with the discovery have weighed in to say that while some of the cut stones might date back to the Iron Age, the construction methods seen in photographs of the castle suggest the medieval period. It is quite common in archaeological sites to find that prior cultures reused the building materials of ancient civilizations. A Urartian stone arch found in medieval ruins near Lake Van. So what exactly is at the bottom of Lake Van? Unfortunately, while the dive team behind this “discovery” photographed some type of cut stone structure down there, the site has yet to be excavated by a specialized underwater archaeology team. Many of the original claims in this month’s headlines were based on the finding of the dive team alone, which included an underwater photographer, a fishery professor, and a diving instructor. Thus, it is difficult for any of the claims to be verified before a formal excavation by trained archaeologists takes place. Still, the fact that there are still unexcavated underwater ruins waiting to be discovered is a pretty fascinating thought in itself. Atlantis has to be down there somewhere, right?

Thornton Heath, London 1970s haunting terror, still puzzling to this day

Links Thornton Heath, London 1970s haunting terror, still puzzling to this day RICK HALE explores a 1970s South London haunting that had all the hallmarks of a poltergeist, but it wasn’t… it was something worse! It has become popular in recent years to use the term ‘poltergeist’ when describing any unpleasant spirit. Although human spirits may use psycho-kinesis to move objects, that still doesn’t make them a poltergeist. This can be somewhat disconcerting when trying to investigate a haunting. Such was the case with an aggressive haunting that occurred in Thornton Heath, South London from 1970-1974. This case is often referred to as a poltergeist, however, angry spirits were said to be involved at the center of the activity. Spirits who were hell-bent on making the lives of a young family a living hell. In August 1970, a family in Thornton Heath were enjoying a much needed rest when the inexplicable tore them from their slumber. A radio turned itself on and proceeded to blare a foreign language station.Thinking this was nothing more than a strange occurrence, the man of the house unplugged the radio and went back to bed. Little did they know this was only the beginning of many sleepless nights and terror filled days. As the days gave way to months, other strange, even violent activity began happening. Pictures fell from walls, glasses and plates flew out of the cupboards and a lamp lept from a table and shattered over the head of the man of the house. A few days before Christmas, the family watches in terror as the Christmas tree violently shook and the ornaments flew off in all directions shattering against the walls. To the student of anomalous phenomena, this sounds like the family had fallen victim to a poltergeist. This, however, was not the case when the sound of heavy footsteps and voices were heard on the second floor. And as in most cases, the family diligently investigated and found nothing. Family and friends were not spared the wrath of the vengeful spirit. In an attempt to alleviate the terror infesting their home, the family invited friends for a night of food and drink. As everyone sat at the table enjoying themselves a loud bang issued from the front door. When a member of the family went to open the door it blew open with a violent force. All the lights in the house switched on then off, bathing the house in an eerie, silent darkness. That night, the family came to the conclusion they needed help, and quickly. The next day they contacted a local church and a priest was immediately dispatched to the home. A blessing of the property was performed, unfortunately it didn’t seem to work. The entity stepped up its onslaught of terror on the family. It banged furiously on the walls, loud crashes came from the upstairs rooms and a terrifying apparition appeared bringing with it a feeling of cruel malevolence. Following the failed blessing, the family was put in touch with a spiritualist medium. When the medium arrived she immediately sensed the presence of two spirits in the home. The medium explained the spirits were a farmer and his wife named Chatterton. The Chattertons, considered the family to be trespassers and attempted to make them leave using any method at their disposal. The medium tried to get the spectral couple to leave, but they flatly refused. This was their house and no one was going to make them leave. Even if they were dead. Finally, after four long years the family could endure no more. They packed up all their worldly possessions and abandoned the home they worked so hard for. The ghosts that relentlessly terrified them got what they wanted, their house back. Nov 29, 2017

Daily 2 Cents: Four-Legged Humanoid Observed in Big Bear Lake -- Levitating Towel and Morphing Teddy Bear -- Nebraska Bigfoot

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 Daily 2 Cents: Four-Legged Humanoid Observed in Big Bear Lake -- Levitating Towel and Morphing Teddy Bear -- Nebraska Bigfoot Four-Legged Humanoid Observed in Big Bear Lake Big Bear Lake, CA - 2017-02-27: The night of February 27th early am, I was staying at the Best Western in Big Bear. At approximately 12:35 am I walked to my car alone to retrieve my luggage. It had been snowing and was extremely dark, my car was facing a country road. When I hit the unlock button on my car, the parking and interior lights came on. This allowed me to see two eyes reflecting in the middle of the road, about 10-15 ft from me. At first, I thought it was a deer, I have lived in Colorado and I'm accustomed to seeing wildlife. I instantly stopped and remained still as I didn't want to scare off the what I thought was a deer. As my eyes glanced downwards, I noticed it wasn't a deer, it looked like a white, hairless naked man on all fours. It was at least four feet in height, on all fours. Probably around 15 ft if it stood up. There was a brief moment as our eyes made contact. It then, as quickly as I have ever seen any animal, turned around, ran as fast as a cheetah away from me and then, straight up a tree. I was frozen in disbelief. I said out loud to myself, "you have to be flipping kidding me". Just as I was going to convince myself that this couldn't possibly be happening, it leapt from tree top to tree top and I could see it's full outline as it did so. I've never heard of such a creature but, I have found some other videos and pictures online that look exactly like what I saw. The speed and strength it had is like nothing I've ever heard of before. The creature was definitely solid, it appeared as if it was coming toward me, possibly hunting me? I don't know what stopped it. Was it the lights that went on? It had no visible genitalia. it had a very human like qualities. First, it was a new moon and I believe it was an eclipse that day as well. There was a creek across the street. I don't know if this has anything to do with my experience but, I was also a day from menstruating. If this had been a huge-eyed gray alien, it would have made more sense. I've heard of those but, this was unlike anything I've ever been familiar with. None of this makes sense to me, the speed, agility of the creature and there shouldn't be anyway that the treetops should have been able to hold the weight of the creature. It appeared to be flashing like a TV going in and out of reception as it sprinted up the tree. It also didn't appear to disrupt the foliage as it did so. I immediately called my father after I rushed back into my hotel room. My son was asleep and I was understandable in a state of shock. At this time, no one knew what hotel i was staying in. As i was crying on the phone to my father, the hotel phone rang. I answered it and it was only dial tone. Then, there was a knock at the hotel room door. Once again, no one was there. At this point, my son woke up due to the commotion. I told him it was a scary dream. I gave my father the hotel information and he advised me to go wait in the lobby with my son. As we were leaving, there was another knock but, it was at the back sliding glass door that went out to a privately fenced in patio. This was a one time encounter and it's unfortunate that I still live in fear of this experience. I was raised Christian, this humanoid doesn't fit into any category in which I am familiar. I don't know why this happened and what I'm supposed to learn from it. In addition, the hotel phone number, I found out later, has six 6's in a row. I don't know if that has anything to do with what happened. I was always taught that demons can't have a physical body unless it's possessing someone. I can't imagine it flying a spacecraft due to it's primal manner. is it a trans-dimensional being? Nephilim? What was it going to do? Is it going to come after me again? Why didn't it do what it was set out to do? My previous beliefs on the world and the way things work has been tossed upside down. While it's thought provoking, it's been very traumatic and has me in a panicked state that's distracting and mostly negative. - MUFON NOTE: For the past year or so, I have been investigating sightings of a humanoid in and around the Big Bear Lake area...then southeast into Big Morongo Canyon and along Rt.62 into Yucca Valley& Joshua Tree. There have been reports of people going missing in the area for several years...and a few body parts have been recovered. There have also been sightings of a winged humanoid in Yucca Valley. Lon

Meet Todd Rider, The MIT Engineer Who Probably Cured Every Virus on Earth

Meet Todd Rider, The MIT Engineer Who Probably Cured Every Virus on Earth Meet the man who just might have a cure for most viruses on Earth, Todd Rider. A biomedical engineer at MIT with the name of Todd Rider has what could be a potential cure for all known viruses on the planet. However, he is not going to be curing Zika or anything else very soon as the one thing he does not have is money. DRACO Was Discovered 15 Years Ago There was a lot of arms waving about and many crowdfunding campaigns following his announced discovery 15 years ago and today he still has not been given the funds to follow up on his preliminary tests that were successful. At the moment Rider is living in the spot that is often referred to by scientists as Valley of Death. This is the place between work that basic research organizations might fund and the landslides of pharmaceutical companies. Related Articles Self-taught Rocket Engineer Wants To Prove Earth Is Flat Rider does have an Indiegogo campaign on the go that is looking very sleek right now and this was put up by savvy internet activists and it is running at the moment. However, it’s not going too well despite the fact that the benefits of those funding him could be life-changing, albeit uncertain. Support for the campaign has been enthusiastic, but at the same time rather inadequate. However, Rider has got used to this by now. DRACO In 60 Seconds Rider has talked a bit about his findings and when he first found DRACOs. He said that there are very few antiviral therapeutics out there and those that tend to be for specific and for individual viruses and in some cases just particular strains of individual viruses. He said that he had been motivated to developing new antiviral therapeutics that could be effective against many viruses across a broad spectrum. Rider Borrowed From Mother Nature For DRACO Rider went on to say that instead of trying to come up with something from scratch he chose to borrow from what Mother Nature had invented already. The cells have natural ways of being able to detect viral double-stranded RNA and they also have natural ways of being able to kill off certain cells. He said that he had come up with DRACO to be able to combine the two natural cells which would kill off any cells that were infected with a virus. Rider thinks that DRACO has the same potential as the development of antibiotics to revolutionize treatment along with preventing bacterial infections in the middle of the 20th century. He said that DRACO could potentially do the same for prevention and treatment of viral infections during the 21st century. His research has been buried by Big Pharma The Valley of Death is a problem that is significant in regards to medical research, and it might be easy to think that a potential cure for all viruses known to man would get him out of that valley by generating enough interest and funds, so why hasn’t it? Some modest funding from the National Institutes of Health allowed for previous proof of concept experiments that were done in cells and mice. However, that funding has passed. The big pharmaceutical companies have the expertise and resources to carry new drugs, including DRACO, and take them past the manufacturing scale-up, the big animals trials and then onto FDA human trials to get approval. Before they commit money from their own pockets the companies wish to see that DRACO has been effective against clinically relevant viruses, such as the herpesvirus family and not just the proof of concept viruses that had been funded by NIH previously. Valley Of Death Is Experimental And Financial Gap The Valley of Death is the experimental and financial gap that lies between the NIH proof of concept experiments and being able to convince some of the big pharmaceutical companies to take DRACOs to human trials. Rider explained that in theory DRACO had been designed to be effective against many viruses over a broad spectrum and in many people. He said that starting from the proof of concept work it could take some experimentation to find the best design for DRACO and this is something that has been a challenge to find funds to take DRACO out of the early stage work. Rider was asked what he imagined a treatment based on DRACO would look like if it should be developed. He said that the first version of it could be administered successfully in mice via an injection or through inhalation. He went on to say that the ultimate goal would be to develop DRACO as a pill that could be taken. Money Raised So Far Could Be Used To Buy Equipment And Supplies When asked why he had chosen crowdfunding to help him support it he said that activists online had heard about DRACO research and had offered to help support the work. He went on to say that he was grateful to everyone who had helped with donations and he hoped that they would be able to raise the money needed so that they could fund testing and development of DRACOs against relevant viruses in cells. He went on to say that in the event of not being able to raise the full amount the money would still be used to buy equipment and supplies while he continued on with more research funding. Rider said that if they could demonstrate success and optimize DRACOs against relevant viruses in cells then he believed that the results might be enough to persuade pharmaceutical companies to take DRACOs through the large-scale animal trials and then onto human trials. He said that the timeline would be dependent on the funding levels and if there are any scientific difficulties that were unforeseen in the experiments. If everything went well then DRACO might enter into human trials in a decade or perhaps less. Related Articles
