This 3D Zebra Stripe Crosswalk Makes Drivers Slow Down, Guaranteed

« Previous - Next » This 3D Zebra Stripe Crosswalk Makes Drivers Slow Down, Guaranteed An unusual 3D zebra crossing has appeared in Iceland courtesy of a collaboration between a city environmental director and a local street painting firm by the name of Vegmálun GÍH. The crossing consists of several white lines that have been painted to appear to be floating above the surface of the road, an idea inspired by a similar creation in New Delhi, India. Far from the traffic issues in the bustling metropolis of New Delhi however, the Icelandic crossing has been created due to the narrow streets and the speed limit of just 18.6mph, which some within the town feel is too fast for the often icy conditions. The installation has been created in Ísafjörður, a small town in the northwest of the country with a population of around 2600. Although known more for its fishing industry than its art scene, the town is hoping that if successful, the 3D design will become more widespread in the area. If the name of the town sounds vaguely familiar, it may be due to the fact that the other claim to fame of Ísafjörður is that it recently held the European swamp football championship, an event which at the time gained a viral following online. The creation has been commissioned partly as an artistic endeavor and partly in the hope that the unusual appearance will make the crossing more visually striking to motorists thus making the crossing more effective and safe for pedestrians. The town also has a growing tourist industry and hosts a variety of events as well as being close to a local nature reserve, and the coverage of this and similar projects have helped raise the profile of the town internationally as well as having a practical use. Other similar 3D crosswalks and zebra crossings have been created in Russia, Ukraine, India, and China in the past and as such it is not known where exactly the idea first came from. As of yet, there have been no reports as to whether the area surrounding the crosswalk has seen any progress regarding road safety. Given the popularity of the idea however and the widespread media coverage it has gotten for the town, it will likely be deemed a resounding success. 140629

Girl With X-Ray Vision Tested With Astonishing Results

« Previous - Next » Girl With X-Ray Vision Tested With Astonishing Results Many people have dreamed of having superpowers. Perhaps strength like that possessed by Hercules or what about X-ray vision? Well, one girl from Russia is known as the girl who has X-ray vision. Natalya Demkina was born in 1987 in Saransk in Russia, and at the age of 10, she said that she could see into the body of a person, in the same way as an X-ray machine could. She can be able to detect along with diagnosing the health issues of people, and she said that this came about following an operation to have her appendix removed. Girl Can Detect And Diagnose Health Issues She said that she had been at home and then suddenly she could be able to see inside the body of her mother and began to tell her about the organs she could see. Demkina said that she can be able to move from what she calls regular vision to medical vision. She went on to say that for just a fraction of a second she could see a picture in color of the inside of the person, and then she analyses it. Demkina Revealed Growth In Intestine Of Mothers Friend Related Articles Astonishing Ancient Alien-Looking Sculpture Discovered in the Cave of Foissac Demkina said that when she first started to have the visions, she would just stare at people but her mother told her that staring was rude. When her mother began to question her daughter about the strange behavior she said that someone who had come to the house recently had something in their intestines. Just a few weeks later the person found out that they had a growth inside their intestines. Since that day when friends came to the home Demkina tested out her X-ray vision and she then became fully convinced that her daughter was able to see inside people. She said that her daughter could see inside the bodies of people the same way as an X-ray but without the need for medical apparatus. Demkina Has Detected Cysts, Ulcers And Cancer Demkina has gone on to detect ulcers, cysts and even cancer, successfully, in many people who came to see her get a health check. She had been able to see down to the molecular level of the people she sees and has even been able to draw pictures of what she sees in bodies. One account was very interesting as a woman had been given the diagnosis of cancer, but she had been misdiagnosed. Demkina examined the woman and corrected what was wrong with her, a small cyst. When the woman had another examination by another doctor, the doctor found that the diagnosis of Demkina was correct. Since that time the news about the X-ray vision of Demkina has spread through the region and she has been put through many tests by doctors, skeptics and reporters. Girl Detected Injuries Of Reporter From Car Crash The Sun newspaper in Britain invited Demkina to visit them in 2004. One of the reporters had been in a car crash some months earlier and had sustained multiple injuries. The reporter had hidden any clues about the accident and then met up with Demkina to test her. The reporter said that the pupils of Demkina had dilated and it looked as though she had gone into a trance for just a few minutes. She then identified a site of pain at the bottom of the spine and called it a blockage. The reporter had four spinal fractures that were healing, along with nerve damage. Demkina told the reporter she had two separate breaks and that she had issues with bending her knee. The reporter said that both the fibula and tibia bones had been broken. Diagnoses This Morning Doctor Dr. Chris Steele Demkina also made an appearance on the This Morning TV show with Dr. Chris Steele, who is the resident medic on the show. He said that he was skeptical about the abilities of the girl. However, after being examined on the show by Demkina he went for a scan and then told viewers about the diagnosis. Steele said that Demkina had got the hernias right but that she had been wrong about the kidney stone, enlarged liver, and pancreas. However, the gallbladder, which was where some of those glands are she had said showed irregularities or undulations that she could not describe. The specialist that looked at Dr. Steele said that perhaps that was what the girl had seen and she just did not know what lymph glands were. What is strange about the whole thing is that Demkina was a teenager and did not possess any medical knowledge and could only describe what she had seen. Her understanding of the anatomy of a human being was limited, understandably. So her account of what she saw inside Dr. Steele was accurate, it was just that she could not describe it accurately in medical terms. Demkina Is Also Clairvoyant Demkina also underwent testing in Japan and it was found that she is also clairvoyant. It was said that she could use her abilities on tiny passport photographs and by looking at them she could see just what the problem was. Throughout Chinese history, there have been accounts by doctors who have had super-normal abilities. Bian Que was one doctor who had X-ray vision along with clairvoyance to diagnose patients. Others including Sun Sumiao and Li Shizhen are said to have the same abilities. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the ancient Chinese can map out the meridians in the human body?

Study: No.1 Fear For US Citizens Is Government, before ANYTHING ELSE

Study: No.1 Fear For US Citizens Is Government, before ANYTHING ELSE

Study: No.1 Fear For US Citizens Is Government, before ANYTHING ELSE America’s greatest fears revealed, and the government is the scariest thing of all. The Chapman University has released their annual Survey of American Fears which contains a comprehensive examination into the most pressing fears of the average American citizen, and the results are somewhat surprising. The survey, which has been ongoing for several years, involved a random sample of 1207 Americans of adult age from all over the country. These participants were asked about how much they were afraid of eighty different subjects ranging across a huge number of topics including crime, government acts, the environment and climate change, potential natural disasters, technology, and even personal issues. The results of the survey showed that the largest fear among the American people is a fear of corrupt government officials. This subject far out-stripped the next greatest fear cited by the public which was the introduction of the American Healthcare Act (or Trumpcare). The fear of corruption in government was also at the top of the list in the Chapman University survey last year, but the results of this year’s study show a significant spike in people becoming concerned about corruption in government. Last year, 60.6% of people surveyed expressed a fear of corruption in government but this year almost 75% of respondents cited it as a great fear. It has been speculated that this unusual spike is to do with chaos and continual reports of unprofessional conduct from within the Trump administration. Somewhat surprisingly, fear of a terrorist attack has slipped considerably among the American public. Last year, the same survey found that terrorism was the second greatest fear among the American public following fear of corruption in government. This year, terrorism had slipped a remarkable twenty places with more Americans reporting that they were afraid of credit card fraud and identity theft than a terrorist attack. But while the fear of terrorism has slipped in the minds of many of the American public, another fear has come to replace them – the fear of climate change and pollution. For the first time in the history of the Chapman Survey, respondents reported that they were fearful of the effects of climate change and pollution, with a particular emphasis on pollution of drinking water. This is likely linked to the scandal in Flint, Michigan where citizens were left for an extraordinarily long period of time with contaminated water and a series of natural disasters which experts believe to be linked to climate change. In addition to this, the Trump administration has shown a complete change in policy to its predecessors with regards to environmental issues with the President even claiming at one point that climate change was a hoax.

The Golem comes to London! Roddy McDowall stars in It! (1967) REVIEW

The Golem comes to London! Roddy McDowall stars in It! (1967) REVIEW

The Golem comes to London! Roddy McDowall stars in It! (1967) REVIEW No, not the one about the killer clown. The Golem makes an appearance in London, in 1967’s It! RICHARD PHILLIPS-JONES reports. TITLE: It! (aka Curse Of The Golem, aka Anger Of The Golem) RELEASED: July 1967 STARRING: Roddy McDowall (Arthur Pimm), Jill Haworth (Ellen Grove), Paul Maxwell (Jim Perkins), Aubrey Roberts (Prof. Weal), Ernest Clark (Harold Grove), Oliver Johnston (Curator Trimingham) WRITER/DIRECTOR: Herbert J. Leder A fire breaks out at a museum warehouse. Sifting through the remains, the museum director and his assistant, Arthur Pimm, find the only remaining artefact is a stone statue. When Pimm goes to get a torch, he returns to find the director’s dead body lying next to it. Fearing unwanted bad publicity from the incident, the museum management decide to sell the artefact to New York Museum representative Jim Perkins, but when Pimm learns of the legend of the Golem and the power he might obtain with its assistance, he’s reluctant to let it go… So far, so straightforward. However, we’re in the hands of writer/director Herbert J. Leder, who previously gave us 1966’s quite barmy The Frozen Dead (which joined It! on a US double-bill), so it’s not going to be that simple. Where to begin? Right… Allan Sellars (as the Golem) carries Jill Haworth, in It! (1967) Jim tells Pimm of the legend of the Golem, and of how a sacred scroll is needed to bring it to life. Whoever does this will have control over the Golem. Pimm has unrequited love for the deceased museum director’s daughter, Ellen, but she’s getting serious with Jim. Through the Golem, Pimm sees a way to gain power and impress the hell out of Ellen, attempting to convince Jim that it’s a fake to put him off taking it back to the states. Oh, and Pimm’s a strange fellow, who in the best Norman Bates tradition keeps his mummified mother at home and converses with her as though everything is completely normal… Evidently, Pimm’s not the sort of man you’d want in control of a potentially dangerous walking statue, but having found the required scroll on the Golem’s person (and found a local rabbi to translate), he places it under the creature’s tongue in the required manner and it comes to life (none of which explains how the Golem was able to kill before actually being revived, but never mind). Despite his excesses, it seems Leder has improved since his last effort. Okay, he still has a tendency to pack more into the script than is realistically manageable on the budget: a scene where Pimm commands the Golem to destroy a London landmark (in the somewhat misguided hope of impressing Ellen) is reduced to the fella unconvincingly lifting some fake girders, followed by a pretty ropey matte effect. But for all that, Leder just about keeps the film on the rails and moving along briskly enough. Roddy McDowall shares a tender moment with mother, in It! (1967) Then, Leder finds himself 15 minutes from the end of the movie and appears to have some kind of meltdown. If you’d been watching this on TV back in the day, you’d be forgiven for thinking you’d accidentally switched channels to a different film with the same cast. With no attempt at scene setting (and giving the impression that the money ran out before some scenes could be shot), we’re informed that Pym has broken out of prison with the Golem’s assistance, picked up his mother’s body from the undertaker, stolen a hearse, taken Ellen hostage, and headed off to a previously unmentioned branch of the museum in the country. Without giving too much of the quite bizarre final reel away, we’re expected to believe that the Golem must be destroyed by a small nuclear charge, and that any observers a mile away will be quite safe from any radiation or fallout by hiding behind a few sandbags. This begs the question: Is there such a thing as a “small” nuclear charge? The stock footage utilised for the climax suggests not, but then Leder never was one to let logic get in the way. Allan Sellers (as the Golem) and Roddy McDowall on the banks of the Thames, in It! (1967) That the film manages to make it through to the end in one piece is pretty much down to McDowall’s efforts. This is very much his film, and he upstages the actual Golem (played by Allan Sellers) as his increasingly deranged Pimm sets about his (quite small-scale) plans for domination. You have to feel some sympathy for Jill Haworth. An actress who was much better than her later screen career might suggest, she tries valiantly against the odds to keep her dignity and a straight face. At least It! is notable for giving the Golem its first outing in an English-language production, beating The Limehouse Golem by a good 50 years. It’s also worth pointing out that I sat through It! for the third time in order to write this review, suggesting that either: a) It! must have something going for it. b) I’m clearly in need of help. You’ll have to decide for yourself. If I wrote another thousand words, I’m still not sure I could do It! justice. TRIVIA POINTS: The exterior shots of the museum were shot at the Imperial War Museum. McDowall mentions in the script that he has watched a German film from 1924 about a Golem. He may actually mean 1920’s The Golem: How He Came Into The World, the last of a trilogy of German Golem films made by actor Paul Wegener, and the only film of that trilogy which survives today. It! is the only listed screen credit of Alan Sellers (also named in some sources as Alan Seller). If anyone knows anything about him or what became of him, we would love to hear from you.

Tests Prove Conspiracy Theorists See The World Differently

Tests Prove Conspiracy Theorists See The World Differently

Google+ According to various recent polls, nearly 50 percent of Americans believe in at least one conspiracy theory. Other similar polls have found that over 50 percent of Americans believe that ancient advanced civilizations such as Atlantis once existed. If these aren’t you, then it’s the person standing next to you in line, sitting in front of you at the game or sending you a meme online. If you’d like to engage in a rational conversation with them (or perhaps discuss your own ‘interesting’ theories) without shouting, fisticuffs or resorting to all capital letters, there’s a new study to help you out. A group of psychologists from the University of Kent and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam conducted tests on over 250 U.S. volunteers to determine if it’s possible to identify signs indicating acceptance of conspiracy theories and/or paranormal beliefs. They first presented the participants with real and imaginary conspiracy theories and asked them to rate believability on a 1 to 9 scale. The ‘theories’ included “Ebola is a man-made virus” and “the moon landing was a hoax.” Once the subjects’ susceptibility to conspiracy and paranormal theories were ranked, the experiments began. The first simple test involved watching coin tosses. Participants who saw patterns in the results were found to be more likely to believe in conspiracy theories. Tests two and three exposed the volunteers to geometric designs by Victor Vasarely and the abstract paintings of Jackson Pollock. Paranormal and conspiracy believers tended to see patterns in Pollock’s paintings but not in Vasarely’s. Jackson Pollock painting Are you noticing a pattern here? You may want to change your answer after reading the results of the study published in the current edition of the European Journal of Social Psychology . “Illusory pattern perception is a central cognitive ingredient of beliefs in conspiracy theories and supernatural phenomena.” ‘Pattern perception’ is the cognitive ability to identify meaningful relationships between events – a green traffic light means proceed, foot pain means shoes are on backwards, etc. When there are multiple relationships leading to a conclusion, we call it “connecting the dots.” If a person sees a connection between events that are completely unrelated – it rained and you found a 20-dollar bill so you should always look for money in downpours – the dot connections are mere illusions and the thinking is called illusory pattern perception. Victor Vasarely design Would you like to change your answer now? The researchers also found that beliefs in conspiracy theories reinforce acceptance in new ones. “Following a manipulation of belief in one conspiracy theory, people saw events in the world as more strongly causally connected, which in turn predicted unrelated irrational beliefs.” The key ingredient is pattern perception. “These findings are consistent with the idea that irrational beliefs are rooted in pattern perception, as establishing relevant patterns makes an unpredictable, uncertain, and potentially threatening environment more predictable.” That makes sense. However, if you want to engage in a non-combative discussion on this with conspiracy theorists or people who disagree with your paranormal beliefs, you may want to avoid words like “irrational.” Tags cognitive science Conspiracy Paranormal psychology Science Paul Seaburn Paul Seaburn is one of the most prolific writers at Mysterious Universe.

China develops way to grow rice in salt water - Unexplained Mysteries

China develops way to grow rice in salt water Posted on Tuesday, 24 October, 2017 | 26 comments The new rice could feed millions. Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 Gunawan Kartapranata The remarkable agricultural breakthrough could help to feed millions of people over the coming decades. Scientists have succeeded in not only growing rice in salt water, but in also producing a yield of 4.5 metric tons per hectare - enough to begin commercialization. According to research leader Yuan Longping, the breakthrough could ultimately increase China's overall rice production by nearly 20 percent and feed upwards of 200 million people. It may take a while for the new strain go mainstream however as, at 50 yuan ($7.50) per kilo, it is currently a whopping eight times more expensive than conventional rice. Sales of the new variety are expected to reach 10 million yuan ($1.5 million) by the end of the year. Source: Russia Today | Comments (26) Tags: Rice , China
