Golden Wii costs £300,000

IF YOU'RE one of the bunch of banksters receiving a ridiculously large bonus payout for helping to bring the financial world to its knees and you're wondering how best to spoil your mistress or pre(co)cious child this Christmas, you need look no further than a Nintedo Wii encased in gold and diamonds.

We'd only just finally managed to stop snickering every time Nintendo's unfortunately named console was mentioned, but needless to say talk around the office of a golden Wii suddenly brought out a host of bad puns. We'll leave you to come up with your own.

Australians believe in God: poll

A poll has revealed that most Australians believe in God or a similar universal spirit, but a majority also believe in miracles, life after death and angels, and many believe in astrology and UFOs.

The surprising findings from a Nielsen poll for Fairfax newspapers show Australia is a credulous nation, willing to mix and match religious faith with belief in other phenomena.

Although Australians are widely considered to be a secular people, nearly half of the population believe in psychic powers such as extrasensory perception, while 41 per cent believe in astrology.

The research shows that Australians are more religious than we might have thought - 68 per cent of us believe in God or a universal spirit.

A Weird, Wonderful Waterworld?

With the count of exoplanets (planets known to orbit other stars) now at 415, it's not often that a new find makes much of a splash in the astronomical world, let alone the news media. And the competition for getting noticed is going to get harder, now that NASA's Kepler mission is working on its quest to find even small, Earthlike worlds out in the Great Beyond.

An artist's concept of the dim red dwarf GJ 1214 and its close-orbiting waterworld. The planet is actually one-eighth the apparent diameter of the star.
David A. Aguilar / CfAFor example, so far this month, ground-based planet hunters headed by Paul Butler and Steven Vogt announced that a total of three smallish worlds (with minimum masses of 5, 18, and 24 Earths) orbit the star 61 Virginis, a near-twin of the Sun just 28 light-years away. And the same group announced an 8-Earth-mass world, and hints of two more, orbiting HD 1461, a close copy of the Sun 76 light-years away in Cetus.

Mystery as spiral blue light display hovers above Norway

A mysterious light display appearing over Norway last night has left thousands of residents in the north of the country baffled.

Witnesses from Trøndelag to Finnmark compared the amazing sight to anything from a Russian rocket to a meteor or a shock wave - although no one appears to have mentioned UFOs yet.

The phenomenon began when what appeared to be a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain. It stopped mid-air, then began to circulate.

Chinese husband allows wife to attack him once a week

A Chinese man has signed a contract with his wife that entitles her to attack him once a week.

The 32-year-old man, who was named by the Chongqing Evening News as Mr Zhang, took the unusual step after suffering intense abuse from his wife, who studies kung fu.

"I don't want to beat him, but arguments are inevitable and I can't help myself," his wife told the newspaper. She added that in the week before they signed the deal, she had beaten him up three times.

Mr Zhang said his wife, who is a sales manager at a trading company, had studied kung fu since her childhood and that he was attracted to her "strong and independent temperament".

Gripping stuff: the world's first bionic fingers go on sale

The world's first bionic fingers which allow users with damaged hands to pick up a glass, hold cutlery and even write have been developed by British scientists.

Phil Newman, Director of Marketing at Touch Bionics in Livingston near Edinburgh, demonstrates the new bionic fingers Photo: PA The custom-made motorised digits, which cost between £35,000 and £45,000, are directly controlled by the brain and yet require no surgery.

Those fitted with the device can bend, touch, pick up and point, simple actions which can be impossible with absent fingers and thumbs.

They can also write and grip thanks to a special sensor that allows the fingers to detect when they have closed around an object.

Intelligent UFOs are visiting Earth, says physicist

Evidence is overwhelming that intelligently controlled vehicles are visiting the Earth, which would lead to a cosmic Watergate if disclosed by the government, a nuclear physicist said Saturday in Murfreesboro.

Physicist Stanton T. Friedman said he has not seen an unidentified flying object but he hasn’t seen Tokyo either, even though he knows the city exists.

His beliefs are based on years of study and interviews with citizens who sighted UFOs.

Oceans can feed the human race

Oceans could become a source of more human food if steps are taken to expand and improve marine aquaculture, says a new study.

As the world's population continues to grow, lack of fresh water and space mean that agriculture is unlikely to meet food demand, says Carlos M Duarte of the University of the Balearic Islands, (UBI) Spain, and his seven co-authors.

Fishery catches have been declining globally for two decades, and although conservation measures and a shift in consumption patterns could allow some recovery, marine aquaculture holds more potential for sustained growth.

Rare gold artefacts discovered in Hungary

A unique collection of gold items dating back thousands of years has been discovered in Hungary.

Several thin gold sheets thought to have been used to cover the eyes and mouth of a corpse were found by archaeologists in a grave near Szeged, MTI reports.

The relics are believed to date back to the period when Hungarian tribes first began arriving in the Carpathian basin.

Tibor Paluch, an archaeologist at the Ferenc Mora Museum in Szeged, said the gold sheets would have been used to protect the deceased's soul.

Giant UFO Causes Commotion in Salta Town, Argentina!

Perhaps the most chilling detail of what happened yesterday (11.25.09) morning in Joaquin V. Gonzalez, a town of 20,000 residents considered by traditionalists as the “heart of the province of Salta” is the abundance of eyewitness accounts and the manner in which they are so perfectly synchronized with each other. This little town is also known to the ever-watchful gaze of science for the fact that its heights are regularly swept by the passing of UFOs.

The entire town – or at least those who were awake at 0200 yesterday – agree that it was hot, an unbearable heat that kept people from getting a good night’s sleep, their eyes wide open under treacherous, menacing and stormy skies. Outside, people drank cool drinks or ate ice cream hurriedly, before these were reduced to sticky confections.

This was the fate of many residents of Joaquin V. Gonzalez, engulfed by nearly 300,000 hectares of soybeans, when at 2:00 a.m., with heat still burning under their skins, they saw a strange, gigantic luminous creature, elongated and weightless, heading southeast to El Tunal, some 35 kilometers from the town. It plowed the dark skies, lighting everything around it, visible to everyone.

Creepy string of calf mutilations mystify Colorado rancher, police

A creepy string of calf mutilations in southern Colorado has a rancher and law enforcement investigators mystified.

Four calves have been found dead in a pasture just north of the New Mexico state line in recent weeks.

The dead calves had their skins peeled back and organs cleared from the rib cage. One calf had its tongue removed.

But rancher Manuel Sanchez has found no signs of human attackers, such as footprints or ATV tracks. And there are no signs of an animal attack by a coyote or mountain lion. Usually predators leave pools or blood or drag marks from carrying away the livestock.

Aliens 'already exist on earth', Bulgarian scientists claim

Aliens from outer space are already among us on earth, say Bulgarian government scientists who claim they are already in contact with extraterrestrial life.

"Aliens are currently all around us, and are watching us all the time," Mr Filipov told Bulgarian media.

Work on deciphering a complex set of symbols sent to them is underway, scientists from the country's Space Research Institute said.

They claim aliens are currently answering 30 questions posed to them.

Lachezar Filipov, deputy director of the Space Research Institute of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, confirmed the research.

He said the centre's researchers were analysing 150 crop circles from around the world, which they believe answer the questions.

"Aliens are currently all around us, and are watching us all the time," Mr Filipov told Bulgarian media.

UFO Disclosure Coming Later, If Ever

The Internet, as well as many other sources of information within the UFO genre, are buzzing and humming with talk of an official announcement being made by our government at the presidential level regarding UFOs. Is this a possibility? Sources relate that their have been and still are secret meetings being conducted behind closed doors strictly discussing the UFO phenomenon, and how it will be best to relate this information to the general public in a few short months. What? Months? Yes, months. Many believe we are at the long awaited brink of disclosure, and our president Barack Obama could offer a possible announcement soon after January 1st 2010, if not before.

Is case finally closed on 1965 UFO mystery?

In the chronicles of UFO oddness, there's been a long-standing oddity — some say folklore, others deem it reality. This saga, now over four decades old, centers on a reported out-of-the-sky incident involving the small town of Kecksburg, Penn.

The date is Dec. 9, 1965: Residents see a ball of fire shooting through the darkening evening sky and then, seemingly, the object — purportedly shaped like a jumbo-sized acorn after impact — makes some sort of controlled crash into the woods. From there, the strangeness factor escalates with purported military personnel isolating the area from curious onlookers and toting something out of the locale on a flatbed truck.

Asteroid passes just 8,700miles from Earth - with only 15 hours warning

Although no one noticed at the time, the Earth was almost hit by an asteroid last Friday.
The previously undiscovered asteroid came within 8,700miles of Earth but astronomers noticed it only 15 hours before it made its closest approach.

Its orbit brought it 30 times nearer than the Moon, which is 250,000 miles away.

Giant Head Found On Google Earth

A natural topographic feature in Canada which, when viewed from above, looks remarkably like a human wearing a Native American headdress and earphones.

The Badlands Guardian is a geomorphological feature near Medicine Hat in the south east corner of Alberta, Canada. Viewed from the air, the feature bears a strong resemblance to a human head wearing a full native American headdress. Because of additional man-made structure, it also appears to be wearing earphones. The apparent earphones are a road and an oil well, which has been in place only a few years, and will likely become invisible once the well falls into disuse and its superficial features are eroded.

Allegan family claims to have 'close encounter'

According to the National UFO Reporting Center, Michigan has had more than 1,400 reported "unidentified sightings" since 1975.

Ask anyone what they feel about UFOs and the answer will vary - some believe strongly there is no such thing as extra-terrestrial life. Others believe that, with the thousands of other planets and galaxies that may exist in space, it's foolish to think we're the only civilization.

The new movie "The Fourth Kind" is based on a real life series of interviews with residents in Nome, Alaska who believe they may have experienced the "fourth kind" of alien encounter, an "abduction."

Did you see a UFO over Shields?

SOMETHING strange was flying about on Halloween according to a South Tyneside man – and it wasn't a witch.

Gary Sinclair said he saw a bright orange light hovering in the sky as he peered out of his sitting room window in Bluebell Way, South Shields, at 5.30pm.

The 34–year–old said: "It was very strange, it was almost slow at approaching and then it just vanished. I thought it was a plane on fire.

"It just seem to shoot off in a northern direction."

Weird feeding habits of the slingjaw wrasse

Almost 6,000 people have watched the YouTube footage of Epibulus insidiator, a strange predator found in tropical waters in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

Normally, the slingjaw wrasse looks like a fairly nondescript brownish fish. But when it attacks its prey, it looks anything but.

Its mouth shoots out like that of the monster in the Ridley Scott film Alien, slinging forward up to half the fish’s body length and engulfing the victim in moments.

NASA: No records found on 1965 Pa. UFO sighting

NASA said it can find no records mentioning an unidentified object that may have landed in western Pennsylvania nearly 44 years ago.

The Coalition for Freedom of Information, a volunteer group which seeks to bring more credibility to the subject of UFOs through journalism and freedom of information quests, sued NASA in 2003 seeking information about the event in Kecksburg. The group's federal lawsuit, backed by the SyFy Channel cable network, was settled in October 2007 when NASA agreed to pay $50,000 in legal fees and search some of its records.

But that nearly two-year search ended in August and yielded nothing, Leslie Kean, a New York-based freelance author and documentarian who directs the all-volunteer CFI, told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

"I still believe, from all the work and the research and everything, that something came down" from the sky, Kean said. "But what it was, I have no idea."

NASA's press office didn't immediately return calls for comment Wednesday.

Baguette 'dropped by bird' causes LHC disruption

A piece of bread dropped on an outdoor electrical installation on Monday caused disruption to the world's largest particle accelerator, according to Cern.

A Cern spokesperson told ZDNet UK on Friday that the research facility believes the bread — a baguette — had been dropped by a bird.

The spokesperson said the bread, which was "naked and unfilled", had caused a short circuit when dropped on an electrical installation that supplies energy to the massive experiment. While the bird was unconfirmed as the definite culprit, it had been spotted beforehand near the substation carrying bread, said the spokesperson.

UFOs come out on Halloween

Halloween is a night for ghosts and ghouls – not aliens! But a Wigan man was spooked by a close encounter of the UFO kind, rather than a haunting, as the clock ticked towards midnight on Saturday.
Ian Latto was out in his garden in Hodnet Drive, Ashton, at 11.45pm when he spotted 12 strange objects in the sky.

Ian, 53, said: "At first I thought they were light aircraft, but they were travelling much faster than that, they were too close together, there were too many of them and they were flying too low under the clouds. They stopped over Ashton and then turned suddenly and went off in different directions, but quite quickly.

"It was as if they had been heading for a certain point before splitting up. The whole thing only lasted two or three minutes."

Watching the skies for an H1N1 connection

Just as the H1N1 vaccine is becoming available, many people, including some medical practitioners, are questioning its safety based in part on the speed with which the new vaccine has been brought to market. A local man is lending his voice to the protest based on the ingredients involved, adding another element he and others feel might be connected with those straight line clouds you often see high in the sky.

Tom Skarimbas of Hensonville, a former English, French and Spanish teacher who now works as a salesman in the communications industry, has been studying ‘chemtrails’ for about two years now. Chemtrails are said to be a variation of the contrails one normally observes emanating from the exhaust of jetliners at high altitudes.

Fossils of ancient elephants found in Yunnan

Fossils of ancient elephants were found in Shuitangba community, in Taiping Village, Zhaoyang District, in Zhaotong City, Yunnan Province recently when local farmers were digging for coal. Archeologists say this is the largest site of fossils of ancient elephants in South China.
In the Zhaotong Basin of Yunnan where the fossil was found, over 10 new types of fossils of ancient elephants have been unearthed since the 1950s. Archeologists estimate that the fossil discovered in Shuitangba community lived 3 million to 7 million years ago. The restored fossils can form three skeletons of the ancient elephants, one of which has a tusk 2.6 meters long and weighed 150 kilograms.

X-ray machine voted most important invention in Science Museum poll

Russell Reynolds had only one wish when in 1896 at the age of 15 he learnt of the discovery of X-rays: to possess his own X-ray machine.

The Westminster schoolboy enlisted the help of his father, John Reynolds, a GP, and set about building one. Within a year the machine was finished, and it is now displayed in the Science Museum in London.

Yesterday Reynolds’s pioneering spirit gained further recognition as the X-ray machine was voted the most important invention in the history of science. In a museum poll nearly 50,000 people voted on ten inventions and discoveries, which included penicillin, the Pilot ACE computer and Stephenson’s Rocket. The X-ray machine was a clear winner, with 9,581 votes.

Land of mystery

GEOFF was happy to pass on tips to anyone who might be interested in life as a researcher of the paranormal.

IT doesn’t seem to matter that we have entered the digital age, that there’s wireless broadband almost everywhere, Sellafield on our doorstep and the Energy Coast shouting “Science is King”. Ghosts, boggles, UFOs and all-things strange refuse to lie down and die!

No amount of scientific explanation or computer analysis seems able to rid this (or any other) part of the world of those figures in the shadows; those phenomena which seem to defy explanation and convince at a stroke even the most sceptical of witnesses.

So it’s not surprising that when researcher Geoff Holder descended from his native Scotland to investigate the mysteries of the Lake District he found no shortage of material – ancient or modern.

UFO's return to Cannock skies on Halloween

Halloween saw the return of alien spacecraft in our skies, according to yet another bewildered Cannock resident.

The recent spate of other worldly sightings show no sign of diminishing, and now a Longford man and his sceptical wife can be added to the band of converts.

The man, who does not wish to be named said, “It was incredible, I saw them on Halloween night clear as anything, hovering over the Longford estate. They disappeared, but were soon back at around 9pm.

“I can only describe them as balls of orange light, that were there one minute and nowhere to be seen the next.”

Suggestions that once again these supernatural sightings were merely Chinese lanterns have been rubbished by our witness.

“I wouldn’t have bothered taking photos and telling everyone what I saw if I thought they were lanterns.”

Deeper Secrets: Maya, Watchers, and the 2012 Return

Part of the legitimate concern revolving around the year 2012 stems from the fact that the Maya were unquestionably gifted mathematicians and astronomers. They measured the length of the solar year far more accurately than did the Europeans in their Gregorian calendar, and precisely oriented their sacred buildings and cities with stars and star clusters, particularly Pleiades and the Orion Nebula associated throughout the ancient Middle East with Osiris/Apollo/Nimrod. The pre-Columbian book, Codex Dresdensis (a.k.a. the Dresden Codex) by the Yucatecan Maya is famous for its first-known related illustrations of advanced calculations and astronomical phenomena. But how the pre-telescopic Maya were uniquely aware of such important knowledge is unclear. They themselves—like other archaic cultures did—credited ancient "gods" with bringing the heavenly information to earth.

In 2008, fellow researcher David Flynn may have uncovered important information related to this legend, the size and scope of which simply surpass comprehension. It involves mammoth traces of intelligence carved in stone and covering hundreds of square miles, possibly the strongest evidence ever detected of prehistoric engineering by those who were known and feared throughout the ancient world as gods—the giant offspring of the Watchers.

Moonshine turns Mayan horse race in Guatemala rowdy

Despite a drinking ban mayhem erupted at a traditional Mayan horse race on Sunday with riders falling off their horses and drunken spectators stumbling through the mountain village.

Hundreds of tourists and locals gathered for the annual spectacle in Todo Santos Cuchumatan on Sunday to cheer the dozens of riders charging back and forth along a 330-foot (100-meter) length of road for up to seven hours.

But the macho test of stamina was marred, as it has been in the past, by the copious amount of homemade spirits the riders consume, sometimes for days before the race.

Exclusive: Scots metal detector man finds 2000-year-old lost treasure trove worth £1m

A MAN with a metal detector has found ancient treasure worth more than £1million.

The amateur enthusiast discovered four Iron Age gold neckbands in a field. He now stands to net a fortune.

The exact location of the field is being kept a secret to prevent a "gold rush". But the Record can reveal the gold was found in a field near Stirling.

The "torc" necklaces are like those worn by queen Boudicca 2000 years ago. Three are said to be in "perfect condition".

A torc found in England in 2005 sold last year for £350,000.

And experts believe each of the necklaces found in Scotland could be worth the same.

Red Phone: UFOs in South Valley?

"I was just wondering if anyone had reported sightings of what looked like comets falling or 'space' debris falling through the atmosphere on Oct. 26 from around noon to 3 p.m. over the Morgan Hill, San Martin, Gilroy or Salinas areas? I was driving to my dad's house in San Juan Bautista from San Jose and saw about six different images of what looked like the tails of a comet at different times and areas around highway 101. They were pretty interesting. It was nothing like the condensation trail/streams a jet makes either.

Planes are not supposed to appear to be falling out of the sky if I remember correctly. Besides I also saw planes that day too with their "cloudy" trails and their tail trails last longer in the sky. And you can SEE the plane in front of the white trail, even ones that don't last as long. That day was warm and had clear skies until later in the afternoon.

I saw UFO beam up a buffalo

STUNNED Derek Bridges has revealed how he shot extraordinary footage which UFO experts say shows aliens beaming a BUFFALO into their spaceship.
Pensioner Derek filmed the eerie scene from his window after spotting pulsating glowing orbs hovering over a neighbouring farm late at night.

The two bright lights hover high over fields, while an animal appears to dangle below before vanishing into them.

A high-pitched screeching noise can be heard before the UFOs finally disappear into the night.

Grandfather Derek, 69, said: "I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm convinced it is the real thing."

He told how he spotted the bizarre lights over a neighbouring farm as he looked out of his window while getting ready for bed at his house near Basingstoke, Hampshire.

'Miracle' as communion wafer becomes heart tissue

The Catholic Church in Poland is investigating claims of a miracle after a piece of communion wafer was reported to have been transformed into human heart tissue after falling into water during a mass.

In an incident that has generated a storm of publicity in devout Poland, Professor Maria Sobaniec-Lotowaska, of the medical university in Bialystok, has dumbfounded sceptics by saying she considered the material found in the container as heart tissue.

But her findings have already been dismissed by other scientists. "The professor saw what she wanted to see.

She is very religious," said Prof Lech Chyczewski, a blood specialist. "In order to rule out any doubts, it would have been necessary to carry out molecular and genetic testing."

Tweance, the Twitter seance, 'contacts Michael Jackson and Kurt Cobain'

The Tweance, the Twitter séance, has reported that Michael Jackson is “at peace”, and Kurt Cobain thinks Dave Grohl is a good drummer.

The Tweance: Tweeting beyond the grave Photo: TWITTER The Hallowe’en publicity stunt, carried out by “psychic” Jayne Wallace on behalf of a London fancy dress store, also claimed to have contacted Kurt Cobain and River Phoenix.

William Shakespeare, sadly for English Literature students hoping to get a few insights, was too weak to be contacted, apparently.

Cobain’s ghost revealed to Miss Wallace and her “psychic sisters” that Dave Grohl is a “good drummer” and that people should buy their children real guitars, rather than Guitar Hero computer games.

2nd Bizarre Cloud Filmed In Romania

A flying saucer-shaped cloud has been spotted in the skies above Romania – just weeks after a similarly striking formation appeared over Moscow.

If viewed from a distance the disc cloud, which is outlined by a ring of sunlight, appears to resemble an alien craft.

Meteorologists explained that the phenomenon witnessed in Moscow was just an optical effect produced by rare weather conditions, but the latest clip – apparently filmed at the end of last week – has again set tongues wagging.

NASA Preps for Ares I-X Rocket Launch

Engineers made final preparations Tuesday morning for the long-awaited launch of NASA's towering Ares I-X rocket - the 33-story centerpiece of a $445 million test flight expected to generate valuable engineering data for development of a post-shuttle replacement.

The planned launch comes on the heels of a report by a presidential panel of space experts that concluded NASA's current plans to build new Ares rockets and establish bases on the moon by the early 2020s is not feasible without an additional $3 billion to $6 billion a year.

The slender Ares I-X, its second stage wider than the first, stands twice as tall as a space shuttle "stack." But its pencil-thin appearance quickly led to a somewhat derisive nickname: the "stick."

Tourists may land on the moon by 2020

AUSTRALIAN astronaut Andy Thomas says NASA's groundbreaking space rocket test could help put tourists on the moon by 2020.

The test launch of Ares I-X, expected to take place late tonight (11pm AEST), will deliver the agency vital technical information that could help it set up a manned space station on the moon within a decade.

Thomas, 58, said moves towards commercial funding for NASA could mean tourists would have the chance to experience space soon after professional astronauts arrived on the moon.

Giant dinosaur skull discovered on Jurrasic Coast

A FEROCIOUS, meat-eating dinosaur, so enormous it makes the T Rex look like a light snack, has been discovered on Dorset’s famous Jurassic Coast.

So far, only the gargantuan fossilised skull of the 150-million-year-old Pliosaur has been unearthed, but seeing as that measures a mighty 2.4m long (about the same as your average car), boffins are already calculating that the entire beast could measure up to 16m (about the length of a railway carriage), making it the biggest example of the species ever found and beating the pants off The Monster and Predator X, two 15m skeletons uncovered in Svalbad, Norway in March this year.

Cop pulls gun on haunted house worker

It's normally the job of the actors at haunted house attractions to scare the bejeesus out of their visitors - but the roles were reversed when a Baltimore city police officer pulled a gun on a chainsaw-wielding man at the end of his act.

Sergeant Eric Janik, 37, has now been charged with assault and reckless endangerment for pointing his service handgun at the worker - who was dressed as Leatherface, the killer from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The employee, Mike Morrison, followed Janik and several other people up a staircase on Sunday night at the end of the haunted house tour in a bid to get 'one last scream' out of them, police said.

Found: first 'skylight' on the moon

A deep hole on the moon that could open into a vast underground tunnel has been found for the first time. The discovery strengthens evidence for subsurface, lava-carved channels that could shield future human colonists from space radiation and other hazards.

The moon seems to possess long, winding tunnels called lava tubes that are similar to structures seen on Earth. They are created when the top of a stream of molten rock solidifies and the lava inside drains away, leaving a hollow tube of rock.

Declassified UFO files reveal Canada feared alien arrival

Few know that the Canadian government chose to release its UFO files in 2005 and 2007. Over 9500 files were released with no public consultation or notification. Amidst these thousands of highly tedious sighting reports and rambling administrative memoranda, the Canadian government hid sensitive documents that clearly demonstrate officials took the UFO matter very seriously. Measures were discussed to play-down reports of UFOs by using similar tactics employed by the United States Air Force. The ultimate indictment - a Canadian Director of Scientific Intelligence suggested that Canada put in place a plan in the event of a landing of a UFO.

In making available 9500 files on its web site entitled ‘Canada’s UFOs - Search for the Unknown’, the Canadian government has opened an international controversy on unidentified flying objects.

A particle God doesn’t want us to discover

Could the Large Hadron Collider be sabotaging itself from the future, as some physicists say.

Explosions, scientists arrested for alleged terrorism, mysterious breakdowns — recently Cern’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has begun to look like the world’s most ill-fated experiment.

Is it really nothing more than bad luck or is there something weirder at work? Such speculation generally belongs to the lunatic fringe, but serious scientists have begun to suggest that the frequency of Cern’s accidents and problems is far more than a coincidence.

UFO crash in Russia last week

Residents living in and around the village of Pil-Egor in Russia's Komi Republic witnessed a fiery object or UFO come crashing to the ground on Saturday 17 in the evening. The glow from the event was so strong it lit up the night sky as if it was day and the noise could be heard for hundreds of miles.
Now debate ‘rages’ within the offices of the local authorities as to what the object might have been. UFOs? A meteor? Or perhaps a rocket?

NIAGARA FALLS: Strange lights spotted over the cataracts

After spending Saturday evening at the Greg Frewin Theatre, at first Angela Jordan didn’t think the bizarre lights in the sky above the falls were all that magical.

“I thought, being in Niagara Falls, it was another attraction,” the Brampton resident said Monday.

But as all eyes in the tourist center were drawn skyward, she joked with her husband Scott that the mysterious formation must be a UFO.

“We stood there looking at it for 20 minutes. Personally, I don’t know what it was,” she said. “It looked like a piece of metal, and my husband thinks it was a spaceship.”

UFO alert: police officer sees aliens at crop circle

A police officer contacted British UFO experts after seeing three aliens examining a freshly made crop circle near Avebury, Wiltshire.

The sergeant, who has not been named, was off-duty when he saw the figures standing in a field near Silbury Hill, and stopped his car to investigate.

However, as he approached the 'men' – all over 6ft tall with blond hair – he heard "the sound of static electricity" and the trio ran away ''faster than any man he had ever seen''.

UFOs in La Pampa?

Near the towns of Villa Iris and Jacinto Arauz, La Pampa province, in a field of 50 hectares, hundreds of strange circles could be seen, in which the grass is burnt, and so far the origin of the phenomenon remains a mystery.

Fernando Lehr, an agricultural engineer who serves on the INTA extension agency in the town of Guatraché, told a local newspaper: “When I saw the photographs in newspapers, I told the people that were with me that there are many pests that act like that, in circles,” and that “I had not benn in Jacinto Arauz town or had seen these markings in person, but the forms and the situation is very similar.”

The lot belongs to rural producer Sergio Forestier, and over a hundred circles of different sizes between two and 17 meters in diameter can be observed in the property.

Aliens invade Sochi? UFO hunter claims he has proof

UFO watchers say Russia’s resort city of Sochi could be a galactic hub for visitors from another planet. One man says he has evidence of hundreds of UFO sightings.

If you point the camera to the sky in Sochi, you can easily catch a glimpse of alien spaceships – says local UFO watcher Vladislav Karabanov. From the terrace of his home he has captured more than a hundred such incidents. Most are decent quality, since they were shot using high-definition cameras.

However, the objects on tape move very fast and disappear shortly before hitting the ground or sea.

Vladislav says he might have already been in touch with visitors from outer space.

NASA surprised with strange ribbon circling solar system

THE NASA spacecraft IBEX is making a comprehensive map of the heliosphere, the magnetic boundary formed by the solar wind at the edge of the solar system--around 75 to 90 astronomical units (AU) from the Sun (where one AU is the mean distance between the Sun and Earth).

Unexpectedly, the IBEX spacecraft imaged a “bright, winding ribbon of unknown origin” that goes about 80% around the solar system

Why would aliens invade Earth?

As far as we understand our planet we enjoy the benefits of habitable eco-systems, fresh water, and a means to produce foods. These things would be the most likely reason for an alien invasion. Assuming that we are not alone in this vast cosmos.

Taken to account that there are roughly 100 billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy, the probability of life on other planets is a likely one. Also the infinite number of parallel universes, there the possibility of life on other planets is expanded quite a bit. Extraterrestrials would have quite a bit of searching to do just to find our big blue ball in an infinite sea of possibilities, in this case.

The reasoning behind an invasion could stem from any number of things. Their own planet could be in the grip of over population, that they have depleted their own native resources and drained the planet. Over pollution is as well another possibility for their migrations. If there were resources native to only a few planets, Earth included this would be another cause for invasion.

Tweance, the Twitter seance, aims to contact Michael Jackson

Tweance, the online attempt to contact Michael Jackson beyond the grave, is being billed as the world’s first Twitter séance.

The move is a paranormal publicity stunt by a fancy dress shop in central London ahead of Hallowe’en.

Jackson – booked for his first posthumous appearance on 30 October, the day before Hallowe’en – is only one of the dead celebrities the Tweancers hope to contact.

The organisers, including “psychic” Jayne Wallace, also have their spectral sights set on Patrick Swayze and Farrah Fawcett, both of whom died this year.

The enormity of suddenly being confronted with sky-fallen craft and beings from another world near Roswell, NM in July of 1947 was no doubt spiritually shattering. The psychological impact of such an event had to have been deep and lasting. Everything must have come into question relative to man's place in the universe. Newly-acquired information indicates that the Roswell Base Chaplain at the time -Reverend Elijah H.

'Magnetic electricity' discovered

Researchers have discovered a magnetic equivalent to electricity: single magnetic charges that can behave and interact like electrical ones.

The work is the first to make use of the magnetic monopoles that exist in special crystals known as spin ice.

Writing in Nature journal, a team showed that monopoles gather to form a "magnetic current" like electricity.

The phenomenon, dubbed "magnetricity", could be used in magnetic storage or in computing.

Giant Snake Found

Fortress Moon

Anyone with two brain cells to rub together had to wonder what was up with NASA bombing the moon last week. They were looking for water? Really? The entire surface of the moon is pitted with craters. They had to gouge out two more to look for water?

Nobody bought it. The conspiracy theories sprouted instantly all over the Internet. One of the funniest is my friend Alan Cabal's, on this CounterPunch site, managing to link President Obama's Nobel to the deaths of two Jewish astronauts to the old saw about secret Nazi fortresses on the moon. (I think maybe Robert A. Heinlein was the first to expound that one, in his 1947 novel Rocket Ship Galileo.)

Or it was alien moon bases they were bombing. Or it was to alter the moon's gravitational effect on earth's tides. Or to stop the gradual expansion of the moon's orbit, which they tell us is increasing at 3.8 centimeters a year. Or — this was as inevitable as the tides — it was yet another attempt to cover up the fact that the Apollo landings were faked.

'1000ft-long UFOs were NOT Chinese lanterns!'

A Lancashire man claims to have seen 1,000ft UFOs in the skies above Preston being followed by planes and helicopters.
Father-of-three Jason Robinson, who left the Army in 2005, was out walking his dog on Monday evening near his home in Threefields, Tanterton, when he saw four mysterious craft in the distance.

He was so stunned by the sight, he ran back to the house to tell his family.

The 34-year-old said: "I was an air defender and I had to recognise military planes and civilian planes.

"I had to know every plane and they were definitely not what we had. We all witnessed that the traffic in the sky above where they were was horrendous. You'd never see that anywhere.

Moscow Halo explained: A UFO highway exit

The unusual ‘Halo Cloud’ or UFO seen above Moscow has created a real buzz. In a scramble to discount any paranormal or extraterrestrial explanation for the event it has been labelled a freak cloud or weather pattern.
I have received over a hundred emails from readers asking questions regarding the event and many of this publication’s readers work in various meteorological departments. Some have insisted that this cannot be a cloud or an optical illusion. The fact is that mankind has been looking to skies for millennia and patterns this unusual and this clear are rarely seen.

Mayans 'played' pyramids to make music for rain god

SIT on the steps of Mexico's El Castillo pyramid in Chichen Itza and you may hear a confusing sound. As other visitors climb the colossal staircase their footsteps begin to sound like raindrops falling into a bucket of water as they near the top. Were the Mayan temple builders trying to communicate with their gods?

The discovery of the raindrop "music" in another pyramid suggests that at least some of Mexico's pyramids were deliberately built for this purpose. Some of the structures consist of a combination of steps and platforms, while others, like El Castillo, resemble the more even-stepped Egyptian pyramids.

Researchers were familiar with the raindrop sounds made by footsteps on El Castillo - a hollow pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula. But why the steps should sound like this and whether the effect was intentional remained unclear.

Dracula’s Cellar Found

Archaeologists believe to have discovered a cellar owned by the Wallachian Duke Vlad III, commonly known by the name of “Dracula.” The cellar was discovered in the university town of Pecs in southern Hungary.

According to reports, Tomas Fedeles, tutor of medieval and early modern history at the University of Pecs pointed out that his research showed that Vlad III or Vlad Dracula lived in a two-story house located today in the city’s central square.

Fedeles found a document containing a detailed description of the house and its owners, among which the name “Drakulya” appears. The researcher believes that the cellar most likely belonged to “Dracula.”

A local archaeologist, Oliver Gabor, said that the cellar was one of the most impressive medieval cellars found to date and considers that further excavation could reveal important information.

The Fall of the Maya: 'They Did it to Themselves'

For 1200 years, the Maya dominated Central America. At their peak around 900 A.D., Maya cities teemed with more than 2,000 people per square mile -- comparable to modern Los Angeles County. Even in rural areas the Maya numbered 200 to 400 people per square mile. But suddenly, all was quiet. And the profound silence testified to one of the greatest demographic disasters in human prehistory -- the demise of the once vibrant Maya society.

What happened? Some NASA-funded researchers think they have a pretty good idea.

"They did it to themselves," says veteran archeologist Tom Sever.

"The Maya are often depicted as people who lived in complete harmony with their environment,' says PhD student Robert Griffin. "But like many other cultures before and after them, they ended up deforesting and destroying their landscape in efforts to eke out a living in hard times."

Researchers Say Photo of Jim Morrison's Ghost Is Real

Jim Morrison has been dead for almost four decades, but a snapshot belonging to longtime rock historian Brett Meisner allegedly shows the Doors frontman haunting his own grave. And now, just in time for Halloween, researchers now claim the image is authentic.

Back in 1997, Meisner decided to take a snapshot next to the rock legend's grave in the famous Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris, not exactly an uncommon thing to do considering some 1,000 people visit the grave daily. The photo, taken by Meisner's assistant, shows the historian casually standing next to Morrison's plot with one hand in his pocket and a white cloudy shadow to his left, the latter going unnoticed until Meisner finally decided to revisit the photo in 2002. The cloudy, obscure image to Meisner's left to be the deceased singer himself.

The 20 new fossils found in north-east China show similarities to both primitive and more advanced pterosaurs, or flying reptiles.

Final Proof Meier's UFO Photos Genuine!

You are about to be presented with, and perhaps even confronted by, clear and incontrovertible proof that the UFO photo and film evidence in the Meier case is authentic, unfalsified and irreproducible with the technology known to have been available to Billy Meier at the time that he presented his 35mm photographic, 8mm film and other physical evidence. It is also still irreproducible today, even with the best digital effects.

Whether you are a sophisticated photographic and visual/special effects expert, or simply a layman, the use of common sense alone will be sufficient for you to understand the authenticity, and importance, of the evidence that you will see. And, as already suggested, an honest application of technological expertise will reveal, and result in, the same findings.

Despite partial disclosure, Europe's UFO files remain mostly under wraps

In the two years since the French made their top-secret UFO files public, more European nations have declassified documents. But the majority remain tight-lipped with a few refusing to even acknowledge the phenomenon.

On August 4, 1990, an unidentified flying object was seen hovering in daylight near the town of Pitlochry in Scotland. Eyewitnesses stated that the diamond shaped object hung in the sky for about 10 minutes as two military aircraft made a series of low-level passes near it.

Almost three weeks later on August 24, hundreds of tourists and local residents observed formations of luminous spheres for over 30 minutes in the sky near the German city of Greifswald, located close to the coast of the Baltic Sea.

Chinese media tempted by fantasy of women-only Swedish town

A mythical Swedish town where men are barred from entering and women turn to homosexuality has piqued the interest of several Chinese media outlets.

The town, supposedly founded in 1820 in the northern Swedish woods by a wealthy widow, boasts 25,000 residents and a medieval castle, according to the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

A pair of blonde female sentries stand guard at the unnamed town, referred to in reports as "Shakebao" or “Chako Paul City”, and men wishing to enter risk being “beaten half to death” by police.

UFO hunting not for the faint of heart, light of pocket

If you’ve ever had an insatiable curiosity for
UFOs , there may be a career choice for you yet.

While The History Channel recently canceled “UFO Hunters,” the profession itself still exists. However, it is not an easy one.

“The idea of a professional UFO hunter is an odd one, since ‘ufology’ is an amateur pursuit without academic or professional credentials,” said Thomas E. Bullard, who has a Ph.D. from IU in folklore and continues to study abduction phenomena.

“The field does have many followers, and at its best, operates as a true meritocracy, since those people who have skill, ambition and ability rise to the top as recognized authorities.”
