Sighting: January 20, 2012
Location: SR 80, Ft. Myers, FL and I-75
Time: 8:25 a.m.
Weather Conditions: Warm, bright sunshine, few clouds
Duration of Sighting: About 30 seconds.
Events: I'm a department director for a county in South Florida. I was traveling with another director to a meeting. We were on Palm Beach Blvd (SR 80) near the ramp to I75. A traffic accident was blocking two of the three westbound lanes of SR 80, and traffic was backed-up and moving very slowly.
To my right was a small lake. While the general area is heavily populated, the lake connects to the Caloosahatchee River, and eventually to the Gulf of Mexico. On the other side of the river is a large wildlife refuge.
While sitting in traffic, my companion and I noticed a strange disturbance on the lake. I first though it was a fish jumping. However, the disturbance grew. She suggested it was a manatee or a dolphin, However, we ruled this out as manatees don't rise this high above the water, and there was no evidence of a dorsal fin. What we saw appeared to be something like a very large snake -- I would estimate that it was close to the diameter of a telephone pole, though probably a little narrower, and could have been as much as 40 feet long. At sometimes it would disappear, and at other times it appeared as if it had multiple parts of its body rising out of the water at the same time. It looked almost like a very large snake, until it stuck its head out of the water. The head did not look like a snake's -- it appeared to have a short snout. I did not see any fins, but my companion said she was certain she saw one fin. I thought the color to of the body was dark grey, but the head appeared to be brown. It was approximately 400 feet away from us throughout the sighting, and it remained circling around one area. Eventually traffic cleared and we had to drive on.
I have lived in Florida for over 20 years. My companion has lived in South Florida all of her life. She and her husband have an offshore boat and often go fishing far out into the gulf. Neither of us have ever seen anything like this.
US Congress halts debate on two contested anti-online piracy bills
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid delayed a vote on the Protect IP Act (Pipa) scheduled for Tuesday.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith then said his panel would not consider the Stop Online Piracy Act (Sopa) until a compromise was reached.
The decisions follow protests by online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, and thousands of other websites, which went "dark" in protest for 24 hours earlier this week.
"In light of recent events, I have decided to postpone Tuesday's vote on the PROTECT IP Act," Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, said in a statement on Friday.
Mr Smith, a Texas Republican in the House of Representatives, said in a statement: "I have heard from the critics and I take seriously their concerns regarding proposed legislation to address the problem of online piracy.
"It is clear that we need to revisit the approach on how best to address the problem of foreign thieves that steal and sell American inventions and products."
'Censoring the web'
Of about 40 co-sponsors for the Pipa bill, a handful withdrew their support on Wednesday, as thousands of websites participated in a co-ordinated online protest.
Floods of emails and phone calls to congressmen followed the online protests, prompting some lawmakers to withdraw their support for the measures.
More than seven million people signed a petition on Google saying that passage of the legislation would result in censoring the web and impose a regulatory burden on businesses.
Both bills focus on responding to online piracy, specifically illegal copies of films and other media.
The bills would also outlaw sites from containing information about how to access blocked sites.
The Motion Picture Association of America, a key supporter of the legislation, has campaigned strongly against the violation of copyright laws.
But on Thursday evening their website was targeted by a hacking group known as Anonymous.
Anonymous also claimed credit for blocking access to the US Department of Justice and FBI websites, by launching a so-called "denial-of-service" attach that bombards their websites with traffic.
The move was being seen as a retaliation after the Department of Justice shut down a major file-sharing website, Megaupload.
The firm's co-founders have been charged with violating existing anti-piracy laws.
Four Megaupload employees were arrested in Auckland, New Zealand, at the request of US authorities.
Police seized cash, valuable cars and a short-barrelled shotgun from the residence of the website's German founder, Kim Dotcom, formerly known as Kim Schmitz.
Their Hong Kong-based site had around 150 million users and 50 million daily hits.
It has received celebrity endorsements from artists such as Alicia Keys and Kanye West, making it one of the internet's most high profile file-sharing platforms. - BBC
NOTE: I know some professional entertainers who totally supported this bill...but this was about more than simply stopping piracy of music and videos. These bills would be a direct threat to all bloggers and the freedom of opinion and thought over the internet. Here is an explanation of the Sopa and Pipa anti-piracy bills...Lon
Man Was Oblivious Of 3-Inch Nail In His Head
Doctors in the US have removed a three-inch nail from a man's brain after he accidentally fired it into his head.
Dante Autullo remained conscious after the self-inflicted injury and initially believed he had only brushed his nail gun against his head.
The 32-year-old, who is recovering in hospital, even continued doing handiwork around his Chicago home for the rest of the day and chatted to his family.
But he was taken to hospital the following afternoon after waking up from a nap feeling ill.
An X-ray revealed the nail lodged in his brain – but Mr Autullo was still well enough to post an image of the scan on Facebook during an ambulance ride between hospitals.
Doctors explained the nail had barely missed the portion of the brain that controls motor function, meaning he was able to carry on with his day.
Although there are pain-sensitive nerves on a person's skull, there are none in the brain itself.
Following the surgery on Friday, Mr Autullo's wife Gail Glaenzer, with whom he has four children, said: "He feels good. He moved all his limbs, he's talking normal, he remembers everything.
A town known officially as Dog Sh*t Village in western China because life there is so hard have been rewarded by local governors who have renamed the place.
The village, Goushi Zhai, in remote Guizhou province, has spent a year building new roads, improving homes and supporting local businesses and says it no longer deserves its name.
"It started as a nickname because life here was very tough but gradually it became what everyone called us, even the government and the police on their maps," explained one village elder.
Now government officials have approved a permanent name change to Jinxin Village, which means to put your heart and soul into something in Mandarin. - austriantimes
Russia proposes manned Moon base
Vladimir Popovkin, head of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, said Thursday that Russia is discussing with NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) a proposal for manned permanent research base on the Moon.
Ria Novosti reports that Popovkin said, "We don't want man to just step on the moon...Today, we know enough about it, we know that there is water in its polar areas...we are now discussing how to begin exploration with NASA and the European Space Agency."
Fox News reports Popovkin said the discussion is also considering an orbital station around the Moon. Popovkin, according to Ria Novosti, also revealed that Russia is planning two unmanned missions to the moon by 2020. Space.com reports Russia's planned robotic missions are called Luna-Glob and Luna-Resource.
Partnership in space exploration between Russia's space agency Roscosmos, the European Space Agency and NASA has been ongoing for more than a decade in the International Space Station project.
According to Space.com, NASA spokesman J.D. Harrington, commented on Popovkin's statement: "We believe Popovkin may be referring to the work of the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISECG) and its Global Exploration Roadmap. NASA has been meeting with senior managers from Russia and nine other space agencies to advance coordinated space exploration. The ISECG, as this group is called, has developed a long-range human exploration strategy over the past year."
Harrington said the Global Exploration Roadmap extends its plan from the International Space Station to exploration of the solar system, especially a plan for human exploration of the Martian surface. The plan, according to Space.com, considers two alternate approaches to the final goal of Mars exploration, "going to an asteroid first, or going to the moon first." According to Harrington: "Both pathways were deemed practical approaches addressing common high-level exploration goals developed by the participating agencies, recognizing that individual preferences among participating space agencies may vary regarding these pathways,"
Popovkin's revelation comes in the wake of failure of Russia's Phobos-Grunt Mars probe. The probe crashed to the Earth on January 15 after failing to leave the Earth's orbit. According to Pravda, some Russian officials have speculated that the failure may be due to sabotage and others have suggested that emissions from a U.S. radar station in the Marshall Islands may have caused Phobos-Grunt's malfunction.
Pravda, however, reports that NASA officials claim the radar on the Marshall Islands was not working during the launch of the Phobos-Grunt probe on November 9, 2011. Jean-Luc Margot, an astronomer at the University of California, has calculated the intensity of radiation that the Phobos probe would have been exposed to had it crossed the path of the most powerful radar beam in the world from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico. The astronomer, according to Pravda, concluded that intensity of the radiation was not sufficient to cause Phobos-Grunt to malfunction. He said, "The amount of exposure is about 10,000 times less than the level that is considered safe for humans by the FCC."
Russia's space program suffered a series of embarrassing failures in 2011, with failures of satellite and cargo supply launches. - digitaljournal
Child Eaten By Crocodile In Front Of Father
A 10-year-old girl has been eaten by a crocodile as her father watched on helplessly.
The child was swallowed by the giant saltwater reptile after it sprang from a river in Indonesia.
District official Victor Mado Waton said the victim was searching for turtles with her father and brother in East Nusatenggara province at the time of the tragedy.
Mr Waton said villagers found pieces of the girl's clothing several hours later but there was no sign of her body.
The girl's father was a few metres away when the reptile attacked but there was nothing he could do, Mr Waton told journalists.
Last month, a boy was killed by a crocodile in the same river.
Villagers living nearby have reported a loss of livestock in recent weeks as well. - sky

The following are previous humanoid / cryptid encounter reports received by various agencies worldwide:
THETIS LAKE FISHMAN
Location: Thetis Lake, British Columbia, Canada - 8/19/1972
The two boys, namely, Robin Flewellyn and Gordon Pike, were standing next to the recreation center on Thetis Lake when they saw a scaly creature emerge from the lake and move unto the shoreline. It was, as they had described, roughly triangle shaped, with dark, large, bulging fish-like eyes and mouth, and a razor-sharp spike on the top of its head. Its weight is estimated to be 120 lbs, and measures around 5 feet tall, and 5 feet wide. The two teens were terrified at the sight of the huge scaly amphibious monster and they ran for their lives.
With its sporting webbed extremities, the creature chased the two teenagers until a few distance from the lake. The voracious predator was able to catch up with one of the young men, lacerating his hand with its razor-pointed head.
The two lads, still filled with terror after narrowly escaping the grisly creature, rushed to the nearest Royal Canadian Mountain Police station and told the officers about the incident on Thetis Lake. They showed them the cut that was claimed to have been caused by the razor-sharp fin of the lake monster. The authorities felt sincerity on the story of the two boys, hence they immediately launched a manhunt, or should I better say, “monsterhunt”, on the said lake. However, nothing turned up during that time of investigation.
The case was almost taken for granted until four days after, August 23 of the same year, at around 3:30 in the afternoon, Russell Van Nice and Mike Gold claimed to have seen the same creature from the opposite side of the Thetis Lake. But unlike the report of the two teens that were pursued by the creature, this time, it only emerged from the lake, looked around, and submerged itself back into the water.
Gold and Nice described the monster-faced creature as having a human-like body, of at least 5 feet tall. It has silver-colored scaly skin, a sharp point protruding on its head, and very big ears and horrifying eyes.

ENTITIES, ENERGY AND HUMANOIDS
Location: Wamuran near Brisbane, Queensland, Australia - 4/18/1996 - 7:30 pm
A 58-year old retired police officer and his wife arrived home together. On entering their house he detected a strong smell of sulfur. On investigation he found nothing visibly out of the usual. His wife went to the main bedroom and turned on the lights in the hallway and in the bedroom. She then walked back along the hallway to the living room end of the house. He then walked along the hallway towards the bedroom and as he neared the end of the hallway where Jenny (his wife) had just passed, he walked into an area of extreme cold, which, as he touched it, discharged a strong electrical current, which caused him to reel backwards. He retreated back to the entry to the hall and he was filled with a feeling of revulsion and fear. He quickly recovered and Jenny then walked along the hall and suffered a similar experience. He tried again to walk along the hall and again suffered a similar electrical discharge.
The witness and his wife discussed the situation for a while and tried several times to move past it along the hall, each time with the same result. During this period the 'entity' remained stationary at the southern end of the hallway. Their toy poodle was very much aware that something was wrong and he noticed that when he looked along the hall the guanine at the back of his eyes reflected a bright orange color instead of the usual bright green. The presence of the object could be determined by the feeling of an electrical discharge similar to static electricity though very strong and goose bumps appeared on the skin. Within the object it was extremely cold and quite painful. Upon direct contact one was drained of all energy for a short period and normal breathing was difficult.
Later at 8:30 pm their son Adrian and his then partner, Petra, arrived and he was invited to walk along the hallway. As he entered the hall he encountered the same discharge effect. The entity had moved eight meters and was in the northern end of the hall by this time. Petra, who was eight and a half months pregnant, encountered the object and was seemingly brushed or slapped aside but not hurt by it. Over the ensuing period all four of them had several direct contacts with the entity as it moved with apparent purpose throughout the house. Petra's contacts were much less vigorous than those of the other three witnesses. At 9:30 pm Adrian was ejected from a chair by the entity. Jenny had a severe accidental direct contact with the entity and was caught for a moment within it. She was visibly affected, breathing labored, elevated pulse rate, weakness and disorientation. External check of the premises revealed a column of warm air at the southern end of the house but nothing else unusual. During this period there was no discernible traffic or other sounds within or around the house. Adrian had another hard encounter with the entity. Adrian and Petra returned to their home.
At midnight a ball of light energy crossed within the screen of a television set. An independent witness testified to seeing a huge orange light suspended above the house at the same time, 12:20 am. A neighbor reported that her house shook and trembled for a period. The telemetry from the water storage reservoir across the road crashed and then, impossibly, restored itself. Loud clicks in a cadence of three and groups of three were heard several times throughout the house.
Later some of the witnesses developed symptoms similar to a form of radiation sickness with severe headaches and flu like symptoms, sore eyes and joints, etc. Three developed chronic and permanent tinnitus. The main witness developed a brown-pigmented stain on both legs and a circular mark on the top of his left foot. Several rocks in the garden were discovered to have been affected by some form of energy, one having exploded into a fine powder. A candle had been selectively melted and the stearic acid component separated and crystallized. Moss on the concrete path showed burns marks. Two small sections of the path appeared to have been melted or glazed. Presently two of the witnesses have developed substantial psychic abilities.

(NOTE: a follow up to this sighting revealed that there were other witnesses of strange phenomena in the surrounding area. Queensland Police Service took reports of two separate sightings of tall bluish translucent humanoids walking through a field near the Wararba Creek in Wamuran. This information was recently supplied to me by an associate in Southport, Oueensland...Lon)
Location: Orwell, Ohio - Summer 1975
I had a normal upbringing. Parents are still married, went to church on Sundays, had a dog, picket fence, all those things. I did a little marijuana in high school, I rarely drink, and there is only one reported case of a mental illness in my family."
"When I was 12-13 yrs old, I remember having a very vivid dream where I was sitting in my living room watching TV. While watching TV (which in my dream I was viewing myself in 3rd person) something made me want to look out through the dining room and out through the large sliding glass door into the backyard. When I turned my head, it was completely dark outside, and then in almost a comedic way of film, this giant moon slid up from below the horizon (like from the 9 to 12 position on a clock). The moon was enormous, almost filling the sky and was brilliantly white. As I sit dumbfounded in my dream staring out the back window, something pulls my legs out from under me while I'm sitting on them on the floor. This startled me but while in my dream I am still staring at the moon this voice from what I can only assume was in my head said, "its almost over"."
"This frightened me horribly. So much that I woke up hot and sweaty only to find my bedroom door partially open with a small, dark figure closing the door and saying without moving his mouth "don't tell"."
"I don't recall really any of the small humanoid's features. I just recall him being about 2-2.5 ft tall and seeing the figures darker than gray complexion and nothing moved on its face when I heard it speak. Even to this day this incident is one of the most vivid memories that I have."
Seeing your photo of a reptile man was nearly like pulling out a photo of my head from that past memory.
"I mentioned nothing of this occurrence until a just a few years ago to a close friend. I never even told my wife."
"Well I went off to college, came back home, got married, had a couple of kids and just over a year ago bought my parents house. On and off since the encounter/dream/incident (whatever you would like to call it because I don't) I get this feeling like I'm being observed. Not the kind of being watched where you are sitting up at night unable to sleep and you feel like someone is watching you through the window. More like something is waiting for me as I walk into rooms and sitting in the car with me while I drive to work. This was only in small increments and I never felt it to be constant. But since moving back home, I am feeling it more so."
"My son is the fun age of 5 and recently started talking about some guy he met here at home named 'Kyle Foker'. He tells my wife and I that he has seen him all over the house. Yes he is a child, with an imagination. But while giving him the 20 questions over his new friend I am rattling my brain on what TV show/commercial/movie he could have come up with this, and so far have come up with nothing."
"While that is going on I was in the kitchen just a week or so ago talking to my mom and for some reason I felt compelled to look the other way and I saw a dark figure. This figure that I saw had an upside down triangle for a torso and a rectangular block for a head. When I turned to look I could tell that it looked at me because while my brain was trying to comprehend what I just had seen, I could see that the block head sort of rotated and proceeded to take an immediate left and zip its way through my stairs that go up to our bedrooms."
"From everything that I know, no one has died on this property. (My grandfather that lived with my parents and I (at my current location) for a few years while from the time I was six until I was in high school became ill with Alzheimer's and later passed away having a complication from a stroke at a hospice center.) But I am afraid partially for my sanity but more for my family. Although no one has been hurt in any way, I can't help to think like a father/husband and want to protect my family from any possible threat. But my issue here is that what the hell am I dealing with? Possible alien thing, spirit, mental illness, or D: all of the above? Am I seeing one thing and my son is seeing something else?"

(NOTE: I had attempted to contact the witness on several occasions without success. A snail-mail inquiry was returned...I later found out that the house was at that time unoccupied with no forwarding address (July 2011)...Lon)
HAIRY ONE-EYED HUMANOID
Location: Mahachkala, Dagestan Republic, North Caucasus, Russia - Spring 1990 - Midnight
The witness, M, characterized as a sober minded and respected individual after returning home saw a strange bright green coin-like circle hovering in the air above the refrigerator. At first he thought it was a portable flashlight accidentally left switched on by his wife, but when he asked her, she denied that. M looked again at the green coin-sized light and noticed that it seemed to be increasing in size, and becoming more intense. Suddenly the object began to move in the air, it made circular movements and it began flying around the witness in a complicated trajectory. The witness felt heat coming from the light and also heard a whistling sound.
The green light then expanded more and transformed into a human-like head. The witness thought that he was going crazy and turned his face to the wall and began praying to Allah. However when he looked back over his shoulder, the image was still there, despite his prayers. The image had now transformed itself into a humanoid shape, with arms, legs and a body that was totally covered with dense fur, like an ape. The humanoid appeared to be a cyclopean with only one eye in the middle of the forehead which emanated a red beam of light, like that of a flashlight. The neck was absent and its head was set squarely on a pair of powerful shoulders. The entity's height was more than 2 meters and it was very muscular. The intruder began floating in midair just above the floor moving forward towards where M's children were sleeping. M. hurried and rushed ahead of the entity towards his children, covering them with his body.
At this point he began to pray again asking Allah to save him and his children from the hairy monster. The creature floated towards the bed and covered M and his children briefly picked them up and then dropped them back down immediately on the bed, without harming them. The creature then stepped back as M still covered his children, his body now facing the strange entity. The entity stood motionless at some distance from the bed. The humanoid did not make any threatening moves. Trembling in horror M hid his head under the bed sheets and continued praying in earnest. Soon the doors creaked and there was a loud slamming sound, this awoke M's wife, which confirmed her husband's story, emphasizing that he had never experienced any hallucinations. After the encounter he always worried about the creature returning and abducting him and the children. In due time the family moved into another apartment.

Thursday night 1-19-2012: Rash of UFO sightings in Florida (unedited raw reports)
Lake Worth 19:40, FL, US: My wife and I were driving northbound on I-95 when we sighted an orange flame-like circular orb just above the interstate street lights and the buildings in the distance to the WEST. At first it looked like it might have been just an antenna, but the light grew brighter and larger as we continued to look at it. Very quickly, we knew this was something strange we had never seen before. The light started to move slowly across the interstate and began to change shape. It started to resemble something like a missile or a comet that had a pronounced fire-like body and tail. As it made its way across the interstate, for a few moments I thought we had lost it, but immediately we could see the same shape as before, only now it was a very dim white outline in the sky. It looked like a cone-shaped comet with a long tail. I could not believe what we were seeing so I took out my cell phone to try and record it. It looked like it was moving very slow, but by the time my cell phone began to record, the light made its way across the interstate and was now EAST of I-95. Slowly it began to dim and get smaller, resembling a star. It looked like it stopped moving, so I put my phone down and stopped recording it. The weirdest thing is that the moment I put my phone down and looked up again, it was gone. When I tried to play back the video on my phone to see what it looked like, my phone said "OOPS! your camera will not open. Please try again later." and the video I recorded on my cell phone would not and still will not play despite rebooting it. Whatever we saw, I know it was something we had never ever seen before.
Lake Wales 19:38, FL, US: On January 19th, 2012 at 7:38 PM. s I came outside from the Walmart store which is located on the East edge of Lake Wales, I observed the following.
I observed an orange glowing disk shaped object (brighter and larger than Jupiter)in the sky east of my location. The object was seen over what are orange groves and the sky was clear with no obstructions. The object was travelling at a slow speed going south. The object stayed on a straight line. After a few minutes the object which was glowing orange blinked out and could not bee seen again. I am a retired Police officer/Deputy and I belonged to MUFON many years ago.
Deerfield Beach 19:40, FL, US: I was driving directly north bound on Powerline Rd. & was passing Sample Rd. at the time. I was just in or near Deerfield Beach as this object in the sky grabbed my attention. At 7:40pm EST I saw a what looked & was behaving like a missile like object going up into the sky. It caught my attention because it had just emitted an orange-yellow like emission leaving a trail behind it as it was ascending. It was far too high and large to be any flare light, so that question is answered. I kept my eye carefully on it as I saw it change its flight pattern & no longer gave the appearance that it was ascending. It then gave off a more faint yellowish-whitish glow afterwards. I no longer saw the object & its dark right now so cant say anything much about that. It may have become too faint after that point. The only reason why I decided to post here is because there are no active military bases any where near where I live. It did not make any sense. I wish there was a way to debunk this. Could a jet engine appear like this in the sky were it possibly had an engine explode & it still be able to maintain itself in flight? It was a very strong emission, enough to grab my attention while driving. Im not typically looking for things in the sky so just dont know what to make of it. Oh, there was a helicopter in the sky just afterwards, but this is also common for south Florida so wasnt sure if it was a coincidence or not..... As I type theres a helicopter with a search light shining down. A common happening. My feelings on this are more like I just want to know the answer since seeing something like this is not normal. I might see if I can reach the nearest airport (its a small private one in boca rating) to the incident & see if theres any logical explanation.
St . Augustine 19:45, FL, US: Saw a very bright amber light in the south east sky about 7:45pm on Jan 19th 2012, Object was low in the sky and moving with a slowing speed untill stopped then disappeared. it was brighter than all the stars and moved for south to east i thought i noticed a trail with some red embers when i first noticed the object and another red ember when it disapeared. we managed to get a single photo of it before it was gone the whole event lasted only a 3-5 minutes that i witnessed.
port saint lucie 19:44, FL, US: My friend and i were driving to go play basketball, about 7;40pm. We went around a corner and at the same time we noticed a street light sized/colored orb come into view. My friend and I watched the object change direction then turn from an orb into a larger light that seemed to flatten out. Its hard to explain. It almost looked like an airplane was flying sideways and had flames shooting out of the top of its two wings. The objects lights then dimmed down to a smaller orb and we then noticed a smoke trail coming from the back of the object and intermittant lights that would illuminate the smoke trail. The smoke trail disappeard and the object looked now like a star. It appeared to remain motionless for 1 min, pulsated about 3 times, then the light went back solid then it dissappeared. Initially I thought it was a Missile or rocket. I then thought it was an airplane on fire until the light dimmed down a just sat there. Also when i first noticed the light there was an airplane in the area and this object looked to be three times the size of the airplane. After about 20 seconds of watching the object we reached a stop light and the people in the car next to us were recording the object on their phone. I asked them what it was and they said they didnt know. We also drove by a soccer field and soccer players were observing the object as well. It was not a plane or a helicopter, and I dont believe it was a missile. Very interested in finding out what this was
New Port Richey 21:15, FL, US: I was leaving my church at approximately at 9:10 pm after our church band rehersal. I looked up at the west sky and saw several red lights in perfect formation across the sky. The lights were lined up stationary from south to north. I drove home less than three miles away, but did not see the lights from my front yard. I got back in my car and drove back to the church, but the lights were no longer there.
. . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . .
The red lights were lined up in this formation.
port saint lucie 19:30, FL, US: I was standing in my front yard in Port Saint Lucie, FL smoking a cigarette because I do not smoke in the house. A bright red-orange light caught my eye. I do not want to say which direction because I am not 100% sure if it was exactly south or south east. At first I thought it was an airplane but it did not appear to have lights like an airplane. Instead it seemed to be a glowing ball. After focusing on the object I noticed a red trail behind it like you would see on a comet. This made me think it was a meteor something similar. However, the most shocking thing happened that I find difficult to describe. A white light begin to shoot from the back end of the object. (I say back because it exited the object from the opposite end of the direction it was heading) The light shot from the object and traveled down the length of the red tail. It did not stem from the object like light from a flashlight stems from the flashlight itself but rather after it was shot from the object it traveled detached. The white light was shot a number of times from the red orb. The sight was very perplexing and almost fearful due to the unknowns surrounding what it could be. The white light then stopped and it was just the red orb and the red tail again. Shortly after the white light stopped, the red tail disappeared. The object traveled for a few seconds more then disappeared as if it went behind a cloud. I thought that it was clear skies but it was dark out so I cant say for sure. However, the stars could be seen near where the object disappeared so I watched and waited for it to reappear hoping to see the trail and the white light again. However, it never reappeared. It was like it disappeared or the light went out. I immediately went inside to check online for any events such as meteor showers happening but couldnt find anything so I went back outside to look at the sky for anything strange. Within a few minutes a police officer came down my street shining its spotlight. The officer talked to some kids walking down the street but I was too far away to catch what the conversation was about. The cop then continued on shining the spotlight from the car as if looking for someone. About 10 minutes later a helicopter flew by extremely low and it too had its spotlight on but it is unclear if the police and the red orb were related in any way. It all happened around 7:40 pm eastern standard time. I checked periodically throughout the night for anything in the sky but it is now 12:00 am and no cops or strange objects have been seen since.
St. Augustine 19:30, FL, US: Let me start by saying I am an occasional sky watcher. I have never seen anything that was unusual enough to feel led to report in my 35 years. This is my first time to this website.
I got off work at 7:15pm tonight. I went to the gas station across the street to fuel up. As I began to refuel I heard a jet flying by headed, what sounded like, in a southeast direction. It was fairly low by the sound of it, but I was unable to see due to the station canopy. I thought nothing of it because its not the first time Ive witnessed/heard night flights from the local military bases.
While driving home on I95 from Jacksonville to Saint Augustine I saw a stationary, bright light that I initially thought was a comet, due to what seemed like a small tail. I found it very off and out of place. I moved my head around to judge whether or not it was just a reflection from the windshield. It wasnt. I also adjusted my glasses to see if it was a smudge or reflection from them. As I was doing that, the "tail" brightened and I was able to tell that it was neither and it was definitely a beam of light, not very long, coming from the starlike light. It began moving slowly from west of I95 to east. As I got closer I could also see, in the beam, what appeared to be smoke or mist as it moves through a beam of light. I watched it move approximately 1 mile across the sky in an eastward direction over a two minute period. About 3/4 of the way through it started to slowly gain altitude as well and I could no longer distinguish the short beam. After the two minutes it hovered, with no beam for another minute. Just a bright, starlike light. Then it just disappeared. I thought OMG. WTH was that. Maybe it went behind clouds, but there were none. It was a cloudless night.
I considered that it could have been a helicopter with a searchlight, and it could be, but the altitude was way to high for the light to have done any good. It appeared to be at least 600 feet off the ground when I first spotted it and the beam was only visible for maybe 70 feet of that distance and I dont know that searchlights get three times brighter or have adjustable intensity settings. Maybe they do. The object wasnt using it for navigation purposes, because it was pointed in the opposite direction as it was heading.
I wasnt the only one to have seen it either because the traffic slowed down as it passed over the interstate and I noticed a few vehicles parked on the shoulder of I95 most likely watching the same thing.
I later realized the jet I heard earlier was headed in that direction and not towards the closest base. It would have been heading southwest if that were the case, not southeast.
As I got home I searched the sky for a bit and noticed Venus. Using that as a reference I would say the object was at least twice as big and bright as it is.
I mentioned at the beginning that I was an "occasional" sky watcher. I like looking for unexplained things but remain on the skeptical side. This is the first time Ive seen something that didnt seem it could have an easy explanation so I submitted this in hopes of getting a reasonable explanation. Let me know if you have one.
East of Parish florida, FL, US: We were sitting on the lanai which faces east and saw a bright orange light in the sky. I thought it was maybe a strange reflection through a cloud, Lori said look at the stars there are no clouds. She thought maybe a plane on fire. We noticed it was brighter than airplane lights. It appeared to be stationary. We were watching it and trying to figure it out when it became bright white. Then it suddenly went left and right and left again very fast and disappeared as we watched. This was somewhere east of Parish dont know the distance but guess pretty far and very bright. Thats when we said we just saw a UFO.
Heart specialist of over 30 years exposed as carpenter
A bogus doctor who operated as a heart specialist for more than 30 years has been exposed as a carpenter without a single medical qualification to his name.
Self-styled expert Vladimiro Colloca, 58, is understood to have been consulted by thousands of patients around Milan, Italy, in three decades of posing as a cardiac specialist, say prosecutors.
He was caught out when some of his patients mentioned him in consultations with real heart experts, who had never heard of him.
Police are now investigating his extensive patient records to establish if any of them died or suffered as a result of his treatment. - austriantimes
Old story going viral again....'Cat Boy' from China
A child of Chinese nationality can be seen from small in total darkness. According to specialists of the hospital in Dahua, south of that country, it is a genetic condition that leaves less protection for your eyes and make them more sensitive to light.
Nong Youhui rage with his superpowers. His parents are still concerned about the case.
It all started with a visit to the doctor when the child’s father appeared to review your child’s eyes.
The problem was that his father noticed the boy’s eyes glowed in the dark like flashlights.
As reported by The Sun newspaper, to the surprise of the doctors at hospital in Dahua, southern China, found that the child has the ability to see in the dark.
According to medical examinations that made him able to determine that the boy easily readable in complete darkness and without the aid of any light. Moreover, you can see as clearly as if it were daylight.
Experts believe that the child was born with a rare condition that leaves less protection for your eyes and make them more sensitive to light.
On the other hand, the father of and boy they nicknamed “Cat-Boy” (boy cat) warned that some time ago the doctors said that the eyes of his son leave to shine, to become black like most Chinese.
But that never happened by This growing concern in your environment, however the condition does not reverse the specialists explain serious danger.
Of course, this story was reported as early as 2009, but the amazing aspect of it all is that Young Nong Youhui is still going strong with this genetic condition and his eyes have not turned dark.
While doctors in China are attributing this to Leukoderma, in my opinion it’s more likely due to some other eye issue associated with Rhodopsin.
A 'cat-boy' has stunned medics with his ability to see in pitch black with eyes that glow in the dark.
Doctors have studied Nong Youhui’s amazing eyesight since his father took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China, concerned over his bright blue eyes.
Dad Ling said: "They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did."
Medical tests conducted in complete darkness show Youhui can read perfectly without any light and sees as clearly as most people do during the day.
Experts believe he was born with a rare condition called leukodermia which has left his eyes with less protective pigment and more sensitive to light.
French Women Live in Cave to Escape Electro-Magnetic Rays
Anne Cautain and Bernadette Touloumond suffer from hypersensitive reactions to electro-magnetic radiations. The symptoms include unbearable burning and terrible headaches, so bad that they couldn’t stand to live in the outside world anymore. After trying several other options, a cave has become their ultimate refuge. Anne and Bernadette’s cave is located outside the town of Beaumugne, on the edge of the Vercors plateau range, in France. To gain access to the area, a small ladder needs to be scaled while clinging to a rope. A sign reading “Mobile Phones Prohibited” is displayed on the hillside. 52-year-old Anne says, “I can’t take any sort of electro-magnetic waves, whatever they may be: Wi-Fi, mobile phones or high-tension wires.” She was the first to settle down in the cave, and is now spending her third winter there. - odditycentral.com

Take the first step towards genuine peace of mind
Believers say that people were kidnapped at a U.S. Air Force base and subjected to mind control and time travel experiments. And extraterrestrials somehow had a hand in it all.
It’s been dubbed “The Montauk Project,” and is the subject of an upcoming docu-drama, “Montauk Chronicles,” executive produced, directed and written by independent filmmaker Christopher Garetano.
But nobody has been able to actually prove these allegations. And all that’s left of the Montauk facility — currently a state park — are the above-ground remnants of the original Air Force base. According to a document issued by the Air Force Historical Studies office, the Montauk base, known as Camp Hero, was decommissioned in the early 1980s.
Montauk is a small seaside resort town on the tip of Long Island that draws vacationers to its shores every year. Camp Hero, located a short distance outside of Montauk, has roots as far back as the Revolutionary War, during which it was used to test military cannons. Later, during World War II, Camp Hero served as a coastal defense installation against any possible Nazi intrusions into America.
“Montauk Chronicles” follows the story of three men, Alfred Bielek, Stewart Swerdlow and Preston Nichols, who claim that Camp Hero ended up as an underground site for scientific atrocities.
Bielek, a retired electrical engineer, maintains he was part of the mysterious Philadelphia Experiment, where in 1943, the U.S. Navy allegedly tried to make a small destroyer undetectable to radar. The test ended in disastrous results, including the ship disappearing from the Philadelphia Navy yard and — purportedly — traveling through time.
According to Bielek’s story, he was transported ahead in time from Philadelphia, and extraterrestrials were responsible for the technology used in the Philadelphia Experiment. He also maintains he was recruited in 1970 to work on mind control and time travel projects at the Montauk facility.
Swerdlow’s story involves being kidnapped as a teenager from his Long Island, N.Y., home, taken to the Montauk base, and subjected to a variety of experiments.
“Beatings, a lot of torture, electrical shock, burials, near-drownings,” Swerdlow said. “They’d bring you to the point of death, and then they would save you, and the person doing this would be your rescuer or god, and would say, ‘I’m the one that saved you and remember that.’ And that became your handler — your programmer.”
Swerdlow recalls being part of some horrific experiments while at the Montauk facility.
“The walls were very damp, oozing water, so it appeared to be deep underground or even underwater. I was always on this cold, hard table. Sometimes there’d be other people around, either my age or older, and electrodes were put into me and injections.”
All three men claim to have seen extraterrestrials while at the underground Camp Hero facility.
“Well, there were quite a number of aliens at Montauk,” said Bielek. “Some were there on a semi-permanent basis. A lot of them were just visitors that came in and looked at what they wanted to see and went back home.
“There were little grays there, which I suspected were degenerated humans from out of the future. Large gray aliens (which are a different species) were also at Montauk, and they were highly intelligent.”
Nichols, like Bielek, was an electrical engineer, who says he worked with Bielek in the mind control and psychic aspects of the Montauk Project.
“There were definitely alien beings at Montauk,” Nichols said. “We had the little grays and the larger grays as well as a variety of reptilian beings. The large grays didn’t want anything to do with me because they couldn’t reach me telepathically. When I entered a room they would leave.
“They were the strangest thing that I ever saw. At that point, I was beginning to doubt my own sanity.”
And Swerdlow also saw an alien presence at Montauk. “Most of the time my interaction was with human beings, but I did come into close contact with alien beings.
“I did see, occasionally, intelligent reptilian humanoid beings as well as gray aliens who were once human beings but were physically altered as a result of degeneration and radiation toxins in their system. Most of them communicated with mental telepathy.”
NOTE: Here is a link to a very good online source - The Montauk Project. Al Bielek's site can be found at Camp Hero - Fort Montauk. There has been conjecture and conspiracy theories pertaining to the location since the 1980's. I have seen some of the evidence and have read many of the claims...I do believe some covert experimentation existed though I have scant knowledge has to the extent. Below is some of the activity I have covered related to Montauk Project and the Brookhaven National Laboratory in reference to a UFO crash near Southaven Park in Shirley, Long Island...Lon
Statement to MUFON: In 1992 a UFO crashed into Southaven Park in Shirley, Long Island. Many witnessed the event as it is near Sunrise Highway, a well traveled roadway. The park was closed for three days. Brookhaven National Labs was called in. A large flatbed truck brought something large back to the lab. My brother, who worked on the lab at the time, told me that they had an alien, alive, on the lab property. He told me this shortly before he died in 2006. He told the same thing to my mother, and his family in real time, at the time of it happening. There are reports saying there there is film footage of the event. The spot of the crash is still obvious from aerial view. The trees are twisted and turned about. Some of them are bent and it is reported that there is no electro-magnetic field there.
In order to corroborate my sighting information I offer you this report from the paranormal investigative group, Long Island Oddities. I have also enclosed a picture of the twisted trees.NOTE: I have posted additional images...Lon
Southaven Park - The Crash
The most coherent information on Southaven was located in the LIUFON Press Release on August 3 1998. The actual crash occurred at 7:00pm on Nov. 24th, 1992. A man was driving east on Sunrise Highway heading toward WIlliam Floyd Parkway. There was a patch of trees separating Sunrise from Montauk Hwy. To the south of Sunrise he saw a large craft that he describes as, "tubular in shape with two large bright blue lights on each end with a bright white light in its center whose structure was composed of a dull metallic grey texture". He saw the object make a very tight right angle, cross the highway, and crash into the woods of Southaven Park. When it hit, the object emitted a dazzlingly white beam that was said to turn night to day for a moment.
The same man turned and came back on the other side of Sunrise to backtrack and find the source of the crash. He saw helicopters near the exit to William Floyd Pkwy. Neither the helicopters or the personnel that came to block off the westbound exit to William Floyd bore any markings or insignia and the men were dressed in plain black. Finally he went west on Victory which was closed off later, and reached the second turn on Gerard Ave. This street and its neighbors would soon report all manner of electrical glitches, phone ringing with no one there, and TV static. At this time though our witness could see a huge fire back in the woods.
At the same time someone also driving east on Sunrise saw an oval shaped object fly over the town dump hill, "on a descending course 30 degrees to the horizon which was leaving a green ionization trail as it passed". Could this have been part of its crash trajectory? The oval craft or one like it may have been scouting out the local area because there was an incident "reported over Islip Town which were seen on the Channel 12 News in March 1992 at the Bagatelle Road Exit of the Long Island Expressway".
Some researchers say even now that there are areas of Southaven that have the trees bent as if almost torn out of the ground at some point in their growth. On a scouting mission we think we found such a site. We also found a good aerial shot of the area that shows a large roundish area that has no trees at all. The photos are below.

UFO CRASH AT SOUTHAVEN PARK, 1992
NEWSPAPER; SOUTH SHORE PRESS
ISSUE; Vol X, No. 7
DATE; Tuesday, May 25, 1993
A local investigative group that has been researching accounts of unidentified objects on Long Island for the past five years released a report (with photos and a video tape) yesterday that claims an alien space craft crashed into a remote area of Southaven Park in Shirley just before Thanksgiving last year. The incident happened just after 7:00 P.M. on the night of November 24, according to John Ford, chairman of the Long Island U.F.O. Network, who said that it has taken his group six months to do a thorough investigation.
It was just recently, though, that his group was able to acquire the video and the photos. "We knew that something crashed into the park that night and we have, bit by bit," said Ford, "been able to finally put the picture together." Several motorists who were traveling along Sunrise Highway that night, according to Ford, contacted his organization and described what they thought was a plane that was going down into the park. And many local residents whose homes border Southaven report that they heard loud rumbling sounds and saw strange lights.
"Eyewitness accounts have confirmed that a fire was reported immediately after," noted Ford. "In addition, the roads around the park were blocked off to travel by county and park police. The next day, and for a few days after, the park was closed to the public."
One local resident who lives near the park said that for a five to six day period after the incident, his house experienced numerous power surges and the phone would ring strangely without anyone on the other end.
"I ride horses in the park so I'm pretty familiar with the activities there," said the 45- year-old man who requested anonymity because of the sensitive nature of his job ("they would fire me if they thought I believed in flying saucers").
"For the next few days there were a lot of military helicopters going over the park --- and I couldn't get in."
Records show that Southaven Park was closed between November 25 and 28. According to park officials, the park was closed to the general public that week because it was reserved for duck hunting. Although some of the area fire departments were initially called, they were turned back and the fire was handled by the federally controlled Brookhaven National Laboratory Fire Department, said Ford. Ford's group finally gained admittance into the park a week later.
"We found an area that was burned out and some trees were bent over," Ford recalled. "A section looked like it had been plowed over by machinery." But two things were of particular interest to Ford. "We were getting a higher than normal radiation reading in the area, higher than regular background radiation, and the fence line in that area," said Ford, "had no magnetic reading."
Ford explained that metal fences maintain a magnetic charge from the Earth.
"Something had stripped away the magnetic charge of the fence."
Last week Ford received what he had been waiting and hoping for: a video film of the crash.
"I can't say where I got it from because these people who supplied the tape are afraid that the government will go after them.
" Because of the poor quality of the tape, Ford has been working with video specialists to try and enhance the quality of the picture and to produce stills. The video, a copy of which was given to South Shore Press, shows people examining a bright reddish, metallic-type object about four-square feet that appears to be emitting a white, cloudy gas, and a hissing sound can be heard --- a sight and sound that resembles dry ice that has been exposed to warmer temperatures.
The next shot shows what appears to be a person trying to lift up a body near a tree, but the poor quality of the film makes positive identification impossible. In a final scene, three uniformed men (wearing dark jackets and rounded caps similar to federal swat teams) are seen placing a large shiny spread (similar to mylar) over something on the ground. Ford makes no apologies for the poor quality of the video:
"Things are happening fast and the guy who took the shots doesn't want to be too obvious." And he confesses that it is hard to get people to come forward and admit what they've seen.
"One of the major problems in researching UFOs is that people are afraid of sounding like lunatics when describing strange, unexplained events."
But an even greater fear, notes Ford, is the government.
"You get involved with things that the government doesn't want people to know and they can make life pretty tough for you."
What are Ford's conclusions about the Southaven incident? "We are still very actively investigating this event. We believe that an extraterrestrial craft, with aliens, crashed that night in the park --- and we are out to prove it." - LIUFON
Skeptics UFO Newsletter -7- Jan. 1998
UFO Group Leader, Accused Of Plan To Kill Local Government Officials, Sent To Mental Institution After His Two Partners Plead Guilty.
John Ford, the 49-year-old founder of the Long Island (N.Y.) UFO Network (LIUFON), who in mid-1996 was charged with plotting to kill several local government officials because he believed they were covering up three crashed-saucer incidents on Long Island, has been found to be "delusional" and has been sent to a New York state psychiatric center. If/when Ford is judged competent to stand trial, he faces the prospect of a 25-75 year jail term. Two of Ford's partners in the plot to poison Suffolk county officials by inserting radium into their food and toothpaste earlier pleaded guilty to participating in the plan. Joseph Mazzuchelli was sentenced to 3-9 years. Edward Zabo, a Defense Dept. employee who obtained the radium, is slated to be sentenced in early March [SUN #40/July 1996]. The evidence included a tape recording of Ford and associates discussing their plan which was covertly recorded by a person who had been asked to participate but who instead gave the tape to law enforcement officials.
Ford claimed that in 1989, the U.S. had forced down and recovered an ET craft near Moriches Bay, L.I., that in 1992 an alien craft had crashed in Southaven Park, and that a third had crashed later near the Pine Barrens area. He publicly accused local government officials of collaborating with the federal government to cover up the incidents.
In an article in the November 1996 issue of the MUFON UFO Journal, Ms. Elaine Douglas charged that Ford was the "first UFO investigator to be seriously persecuted by the authorities." (Douglas is MUFON's state director for the District of Columbia and co-director of "Operation Right To Know." The latter, which periodically stages public demonstrations, describes itself as "the only UFO organization with guts." It has scheduled a march on the White House to "End UFO Secrecy" for July 5, 1999.) In her MUFON article, Douglas announced the formation of the John Ford Defense Committee and sought contributions. SUN eagerly awaits the reactions of Douglas and MUFON to recent events.
Some of Ford's own comments, contained in a 102-page handwritten "Statement to the Media," were quoted in a lengthy feature article recently published in the Jan. 11 issue of The Washington Post. Ford claims he had been a CIA agent for the last 30 years, but was not paid so there would be no record of his employment in the agency's files. Further, that Mazzuchelli was an officer of Israel's Mossad intelligence agency. Another Ford claim is that the AIDS and Ebola viruses were brought by ETs to kill off peoples of sub-Sahara Africa. In a letter to LIUFON vice president Steve Iavarone, Ford predicted that after a few months at the Mid-Hudson Psychiatric Center he would return and that all charges against him would be dropped. Ford concluded his letter with UFOlogy's popular slogan: "THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE...."
In June 1996 Ford was arrested on charges of conspiracy to murder local Republican officials John Powell, Fred Towle and Anthony Gazzola by doctoring their toothpaste and their cars with radium. Ford was right about his phone being tapped - the main evidence against him was a taped phone call to a police informant. People who have heard the recording say that Ford and the informant discuss the radium poisoning scheme and then laugh heartily as if it were a joke. Arrested with Ford was Joseph Mazzachelli, and the next day a third suspect, Edward Zabo, was arrested in Medford, New York. Zabo was an electrical inspector at military contractor Northrop Grumman. The three men were all members of the Long Island UFO Network. The group has accused the government of covering up sightings of extraterrestrials. Zabo, a former Defense Department employee, had provided the radium, and Ford was supposed to plant it.
The intended victims of the plot could not say why the three wanted to kill them. Mazzachelli was a convicted burglar, and Zabo had been arrested twice for driving while intoxicated and may have had some tax troubles. In the raid on Ford's home in Bellport, police seized dozens of weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Friends said Ford was a gun collector. Police also found what they and the media described as "militia" literature. However, actual militia ties are dubious.
In 1997, a Suffolk County Court judge ordered that Ford be sent to an upstate New York mental hospital, where he remains today. Three psychiatrists and a psychologist, two hired by District Attorney James M. Catterson Jr.'s office, examined Ford and all four concluded that he was not competent to stand trial. Robert H. Berger, director of Forensic Psychiatry at Bellevue Hospital Center, said that while Ford seemed to understand his legal predicament, he thought the criminal case against him was in reality an intelligence operation being run by the CIA together with the Israeli intelligence agency Mossad.
Responding to an article about himself in Saucer Smear, Ford wrote:
My case is a frame-up and a smear tactic to destroy my UFO organization and to neutralize my effectiveness.
The main reason I'm sitting here is due to the fact that I had information indicating that the 1995 East End Forest Fires had been deliberately set to cover up the crash of a large disc near Suffolk Community College, south of Riverhead (Long Island). The County was asked to set fires near the crash site, to keep people out of the area; but dirty politics being the case, the Republican leadership, in an effort to gain control of Pine Barrens properties, set Forest Fires South of Sunrise Highway in populated areas near the coveted land. I was able to document some of this. While doing so, I was targeted for elimination by the politicians. I had several attempts on my life fail, due to the intervention of Israeli intelligence, which protected me for some 3 1/2 months.
Yes, it's true what I said. There is a heavy intelligence presence involved in my case. The man to talk to about it all is Preston Nichols. ... He can give you a briefing on the various aspects of the case ...
Preston Nichols, also a LIUFON member, is the same Preston Nichols of Montauk Project fame.
What happened here? Was Ford getting too close to something he shouldn't have, or had he been delusional for years? - lioddities.com / ufologie.net
NOTE: The official description of the Brookhaven National Laboratory was "a multidisciplinary, fundamental research laboratory. Research in the life sciences is conducted in the Departments of Applied Science, Biology, Chemistry, and Medicine, whose strong programs, characterized by many interdisciplinary collaborations in long-range basic, biological, and environmental problems assist the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) with its decision-making."
In July, 2000 the following was reported by an anonymous source: Brookhaven National Laboratory, located in vicinity of the Montauk Airforce Station, is known as a place of mysterious events connected to Project Phoenix and the preparation of the Philadelphia Experiment. Founded in World War II, it was the place of the first scientific accelerator and a radar laboratory. Nowadays, BNL is known for weather radar work and - in conjunction with the Phoenix Project - as a place of secret weapon developement, which allegedly caused the crash of both the TWA 800 flight and the crash of JFK, Jr.
Another unnamed source familiar with the activity at BNL stated that "Brookhaven National Laboratories had something to do with the crash of JFK, Jr's airplane. The night JFK, Jr. died, Brookhaven was conducting an experiment that scientists from around the world had begged them not to conduct. Other physicists were afraid that the experiment could cause perterbations in the universe that might even destroy the entire universe." - PX Archive...Lon
New MUFON International Director / Headquarters Moving to Cincinnati
The Mutual UFO Network's (MUFON) International Director Clifford Clift announced he was stepping down with Kentucky State Director and board member David MacDonald taking on the leadership role.
Clift said his decision was based on a need to spend more time with family.
"MUFON has come a long way in a positive direction and I'm excited to say that the Mutual UFO Network is in good hands with David," Clift said. "His level of dedication and his leadership skills will be an incredible benefit to our organization. David will be a very effective International Director for MUFON."
MacDonald is no stranger to MUFON and the organization's mission. He currently sits on MUFON's Board of Directors, is Assistant Director of Investigations, is MUFON's STAR Team Administrator, and he is the conductor of testing for new field investigators.
As a businessman over the years MacDonald has had numerous successful operations. Currently he runs a school for pilots and aircraft dispatchers. He owns and runs Flamingo Air, a charter airline.
"David MacDonald has excellent credentials within MUFON and the business world," Clift said. "David's business background and knowledge of the UFO phenomenon is very sound and successful. He brings much to the table as the new leader for MUFON."
MacDonald officially takes on the new position February 1, 2012.
"I'm excited about taking over the leadership role of MUFON and I'm looking forward to working with all the great people in the MUFON organization," MacDonald said.
MacDonald will move MUFON International Headquarters to Cincinnati, OH, where he operates Global Airline Education Center and Campus. Being centrally located, the International Headquarters will be easily accessible to many more members. Cincinnati is within a 6-hour drive for 60 percent of the population of the United States.
The location will have high visibility to pilots and many perspective new MUFON members in the aviation industry as well as increased exposure to the general public. MUFON will have room for office space, storage on site and a walk-in merchandise store.
"We ask everyone to have patience during this transition period," Clift said. "Keep your eyes on the sky and let's all welcome Mr. David MacDonald as MUFON's new International Director." - examiner
Headless in LA (I can bet someone's writing a screenplay already)
Something very strange and very creepy is afoot Los Angeles. Yesterday afternoon two women and their nine dogs were hiking beneath the iconic Hollywood sign that overlooks the city when they made a gruesome discovery: the severed head of a man in a plastic bag. Karen Rayner, a spokesperson for the LAPD, described the way the disturbing find came about:
Two dogs were playing with it, and that's when the dog walkers looked closer and realized it was a human head.
Yikes. Police have been using cadaver dogs to search the area, which is a popular hiking and tourist destination, for a body to go along with the head. Earlier today they uncovered one hand and later a second hand about 50 yards away. Then a few hours ago they located two human feet, near where the head had been. It seems safe to assume they all belong together, but the police said they'll need to "run tests to confirm that the body parts belong to the same person." Let's hope they do.
The Hollywood intrigue thickened when investigators on the case were seen talking to Brad Pitt's bodyguard this afternoon. Pitt, who strangely had his own run-in with a severed head in the movie Seven, has a house right down the road from where the head was discovered—but don't worry he's not a suspect. Police are simply going around talking to all of the neighbors trying to gather evidence.
There are 30 detectives working the scene, and so far they think the crime occurred somewhere else, and the body was later dumped in the park. They say the head is a man who is "possibly of Armenian descent, in his 40s with salt-and-pepper hair." They're working to identify him based on fingerprints and dental records. They've also set up a grid system in order to search for any other body parts, but it could be difficult since the park is home to lots of coyotes and other wild animals who might have already moved (or worse) some of the missing pieces. If it wasn't so horribly real, this would have all the makings of fascinating crime drama. - jezebel
Fake clay iPad Xmas gifts...not quite 'lumps of coal' but same effect
Retailers in Vancouver, British Columbia are red-faced with embarrassment after selling as many 10 customers Apple iPad 2 tablets that turned out to be made of clay.
According to an investigation by CTV News, scam artists purchased iPads during the holiday season at a number of Best Buy and Future Shop locations around Vancouver, paying for cash for the hot-selling tablet computers. They then replaced them with clay shaped to fit iPad 2 boxes, and returned the boxes to the stores, where they were evidently restocked without staff ensuring the boxes contained actual iPads.
Best Buy and Future Shop, which are different brands owned by the same company, are investigating the incidents.
But according to Vancouver resident Mark Sandhu, who found clay instead of a tablet computer in his holiday gifts, neither the retailer nor police were interested in the case until he contacted a consumers' rights program on CTV.
Sandhu said Future Shop staff didn't believe him when he returned to the store with his "clay iPad 2." Nor were police interested in the matter, Sandhu says.
"Maybe the way I was dressed, I don't know," Sandhu said. "[The store manager] made me feel like I'm trying to scam them out of $700. I was the one getting scammed."
The store changed its tune after CTV began investigating.
"Customers don't expect to receive this kind of product from Future Shop, so it's a very serious matter and something we are addressing right away for anyone who has been impacted," spokesperson Elliott Chun told the media.
Sandhu has received an apology and a full refund from Future Shop.
iPads and other Apple gadgets are popular targets for thieves, thanks to the products' popularity and often prohibitive prices. In Asia, scalpers selling sold-out Apple products are a common sight, and frustration with the high price of scalped goods recently spilled over into a riot in Beijing.
More than $100,000-worth of iPads were stolen from a Best Buy in Brooklyn last fall, and authorities in Denver last year were looking for "Ken and Barbie," two prolific iPad thieves. - THP

Ottawa River, Ontario UFO Encounter
Written up on December 23, 2011
I have created Google Map Images of my location and UFO passage that are added below.
Ottawa, Canada UFO – Summer 1986
During the summer of 1986 when I was 24 years old, I was very fortunate to witness a high speed UFO travelling just above the Ottawa River at what I estimate to be 3,000 to 5,000 feet. This observation is based on aircraft normally flying at 20,000 to 30,000 feet.
The craft was a cigar shape. Tapered at both ends and thickening in the middle.
The width and thickness of the object observed from my distance was that of a Canadian dime. True length of object viewed from 1.7 miles is 30 meters to 40 meters.
Please note that the human eye has a natural zoom capability for distant objects of about 1,800x. This observation is based on my use of a modern 2011 Sony video camera with a 50x optical zoom and 1,800x digital zoom. Model DCR - SR20
Distance to object has been estimated at 1.7 to 2 miles using Google Earth, measuring from the top of the hill at the intersection at Duford Street and Jamison Avenue.
My viewing location for this event was at the top of the Queenswood Height's hill in Orleans located approximately 10 miles from Ottawa. Intersection at Duford Street and Jamison Avenue.
In 1986 there were no houses built on this hill giving a clear view of the Ottawa River and the Gatineau Valley 1.7 miles away.
Month of sighting is June 1986. Estimate
Viewing time was between 15:00hrs to 17:00hrs, broad daylight.
I had the UFO in sight for only 2 seconds.
Later on I would determine with Google Earth that the distance covered by the UFO during my observation time was 4 miles. This was possible because of my elevated position on Queenswood Heights Hill giving me a clear view of the Ottawa River and Gatineau Valley in the distance.
The UFO travelled rapidly over the Ottawa River moving in an East to West direction towards the city of Ottawa.
The UFO would be spotted by several students at Carleton University, reported to the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, and written up the next day in a small story.
The event happened on a Friday. Exact date unknown.
Technical details of the event.
Time in view 2 seconds.
Distance covered 4 miles.
Speed 4 miles per 2 seconds.
4 miles = 6437.376 metres
6437.376 m in 2 seconds
Speed of the UFO = 3,218.688 m /s
Speed of sound at sea level 340.29 m/s
Speed of the UFO = 9.45866 times the speed of sound
The UFO moved through the air in absolute complete silence.
There was no sonic boom associated with this high speed travelling object and I was completely surprised. I was listening for it intently.
This UFO therefore had the capability to move through a medium like air without displacing it.
Travelling at 9.45x the speed of sound the only way NOT to create a sonic boom is NOT to displace the medium of air in the first place.
Therefore UFO craft have an ability to move through a medium like air and water without displacing it. This means that there is NO friction with the medium allowing such fast velocities and changes in direction when required.
How this is accomplished is not known at this time.
Could a magnetic field enable an object to move through a medium without displacing it?
A engineering challenge for future aircraft designers.
The technology to move an object through a medium without displacing it exists.
I have seen it in 1986 and that was 25 years ago.

Re: How UFO's achieve such high velocities like 9x the speed of sound without breaking the sound barrier causing a sonic boom. How UFO's achieve extreme manoeuvrability at high speeds. How UFO's achieve such rapid acceleration that defy the laws of physics.
After watching the documentary below last night I came up with a hypothesis for how UFO's accomplish their tricks. I have been thinking about this subject for the past 25 years since my own observation of a UFO travelling towards Ottawa, Canada at 9x the speed of sound without breaking the sound barrier. This UFO was spotted by four other independent observers in June 1986 and written up in the Ottawa citizen newspaper.

Last night I went to bed thinking about a comment that I had written about UFO's and their ability to defy conventional wisdom by travelling above the speed of sound without breaking the sound barrier.
UFO's are observed to travel at high velocity and change direction as if beyond capability.
When I was 24 years old, I was very fortunate to witness a UFO in June 1986 travelling above the Ottawa River at about 5,000 feet towards the city of Ottawa at a very high rate of speed. Later on in 2010 I would determine the speed of the UFO to be 9x the speed of sound based on the fact that it covered a 4 mile distance in 2 seconds. Event happened on a Thursday or Friday in the late afternoon in June 1986.
The presence of jet fighters are very rare in Ottawa, but at least once every two years one would fly over Queenswood Heights, Orleans where I lived from 10 years to 26 years of age. From experience I knew that jet fighters generated a lot of noise when they passed overhead.
Standing at the top of the Queenswood Heights hill, overlooking the scenic Ottawa River and Gatineau, Quebec (intersection of Duford and Jamison Avenue) I was intrigued by a very high velocity object that suddenly came into view travelling East to West over the Ottawa River (5,000 feet estimate) headed up river towards the city of Ottawa 10 miles (15.6km) away.
Upon seeing the high speed object cover 4 miles in 2 seconds, I immediately began listening intently for a sonic boom and any kind of engine noise. There was nothing, the object was completely silent and there was NO sonic boom. “Impossible,” I thought at the time.
“How could an object travel so rapidly through the air and NOT make a sonic boom”, I wondered?
The UFO was observed by four other students seconds later, who then contacted the Ottawa Citizen who wrote up a story the next day and printed it in the newspaper. I was thrilled to have seen the news story to learn that other people had witnessed what I had seen.
I instantly became a UFO believer having witnessed my own event. Then my life moved on and I forgot about the incident.
Throughout the next few years I would read about more UFO sightings and see video footage in 2006 shot from the US Space Shuttle showing a high velocity object travelling over Canada and the United States at a phenomenal rate of speed. The speed of the UFO was very similar to the one I had observed in 1986, twenty years earlier.
Out of curiosity, in 2010 I would determine from Google Earth and Google Maps that the UFO I had observed in 1986 was travelling at 9x the speed of sound. I had the UFO in sight for a distance of 4 miles due to my elevated viewing angle on Queenswood Heights hill. The time for the UFO to travel this 4 miles was two seconds.
The UFO is estimated to have been 1.76 to 2 miles away from where I stood on the Queenswood Heights hill to the middle of the Ottawa River. Estimate determined using Google Earth.
The UFO was an aerodynamic cigar shape approximately 30m to 40m (1,000ft) in length.
From my perspective the UFO was the width and thickness of the edge of a dime.
If one were to stretch out their right arm, index finger pointed out and slowly draw your arm in arc from right to left this was the velocity of the UFO over the Ottawa River 1.76 to 2 miles away. Time in sight was 2 seconds. Distance covered 4 miles. Velocity 9x the speed of sound.
Sonic boom – none.
Engine noise – none.
Disturbance of air around the object – none.
If you have ever seen a fighter jet travelling at or above the speed of sound near the ground you can see the shock wave around the aircraft. The water vapour in the air condenses into droplets around the aircraft. It is very cool to see.
So a UFO can move through a medium like air without displacing it.
This then allows the UFO to move through air at above the speed of sound without making a sonic boom.
In my case and others UFO's are observed to travel at 9x the speed of sound and faster without creating a sonic boom. Meaning the medium of air is NOT displaced when the UFO travels through it.
The same effect has also been seen with UFO's travelling through the water.
UFO's can travel at a high rate of speed through a medium without displacing the medium they are in.
UFO's it then stands to reason, do not experience friction from air molecules like other aircraft.
UFO's have also been observed making impossible manoeuvres in the air like abrupt jumps to the left and right of aircraft and fore and aft of aircraft.
UFO's have also been observed making abrupt 90 degree turns above the speed of sound.
If UFO's do not displace the medium they travel through then why are they so streamlined?
Why are UFO's cigar shape? Why not a cube? Why be so aerodynamic?
Another clue. Fighter jets engaging UFO's report a loss of their control surfaces and electronic instrumentation when they get too close.
All of the above observations make sense if one considers that we live in Space-Time and the UFO is warping time around it.
The UFO is streamlined because it is travelling through the medium of air.
it is travelling through the air VERY slowly from its perspective.
The UFO is travelling in a bubble of accelerated time.
The world outside of this time bubble is moving in slow motion.
This explains the observation of UFO's travelling at high velocities through the medium of air and water without apparently displacing it. The time frame of the UFO relative to its surroundings is adjustable based on the time acceleration in the bubble surrounding the UFO.
This explains how a UFO can suddenly accelerate away at an unbelievable speed.
The UFO is NOT accelerating away. The observers time reference is being slowed down relative to that of the UFO.
UFO's making abrupt 90 degree turns in flight can now be explained if one understands that the UFO is moving very slowly in its bubble of accelerated time. To the outside observer from their frame of slowed time the manoeuvres seem impossible. However from the perspective of the UFO inside the accelerated time bubble they are moving very slowly.
Therefore a UFO can never create a sonic boom, because it is never close to breaking the speed of sound in its time reference.
This can best be illustrated by running a movie through a projector at a much faster speed. The action in the film seems to be impossible based on known physical laws. The observer is experiencing a slower time reference to that of the film.
The UFO appears to do amazing feats of aerodynamics and acceleration because it is accelerating time in its bubble.
When jet fighters get to close to a UFO in flight they risk penetrating the accelerated time bubble surrounding the UFO.
This is what causes a jet aircraft to loose flight control. The jet is moving from a normal time frame of 600mph to one of 60mph or slower. The fighter jet cannot stay in the air at the much slower speed.
Moving through the accelerated time bubble no doubt causes avionics to behave in very strange ways, which has what has been observed in numerous military cases. Specifically that of the Iranian pilot in 1984.
It is impossible for modern jet fighters to catch an aerodynamic UFO, because the UFO has the ability to accelerate time in the bubble that surrounds it. The greater the risk posed by the fighter jet, the more that time is accelerated in the UFO bubble to escape the threat.
The UFO never changes its velocity. Only the time acceleration changes, relative to the outside world.
The creation of a time accelerated bubble around the UFO may be tied to the gravitational drive that keeps it aloft in the air.
It is important to remember now that the UFO is now moving slowly in accelerated time.
This acceleration of time may also affect gravity allowing the craft to appear to be weightless.
The concept of accelerating time in the bubble that surrounds the spacecraft can be extrapolated even further to allow these spacecraft to travel between star systems and galaxies. The speed of light is NEVER broken inside the space-time bubble. However outside the UFO Bubble in normal space-time the spacecraft would appear to defy physics breaking the speed of light.
The speed of light however has never been broken, only time has been accelerated in the confined bubble containing the spacecraft / UFO. To my knowledge there is no limit to the acceleration of time.
Therefore faster than light travel is theoretically possible from an outside viewers perspective.
The same phenomenon is observed when UFO's are observed to be travelling faster than the speed in normal space-time, yet there is no sonic boom (in my observation 9x the speed of sound). This is because in the accelerated space-time bubble surrounding the UFO, the UFO is NOT exceeding the speed of sound, nor is it even close to it. Therefore no sonic boom is ever heard.
The same concept applies to faster than light travel from a normal space-time perspective.
UFO's can exceed the speed of light by simply accelerating time in their space-time bubble.
Speeding up time is much easier and convenient to enable interstellar travel. - MUFON CMS
For sale: Hearse that carried John F. Kennedy's body in Dallas
An auto auction company in Scottsdale, Ariz., plans to sell a 1964 Cadillac hearse that company executives say transported the body of President Kennedy after he was assassinated in Dallas. The car was used to take the body from Parkland Memorial Hospital to Love Field Airport, where Air Force One was waiting to return it to Washington.
The Barrett-Jackson company has posted photos of the hearse on its website, along with a history of the vehicle.
The hearse was the first 1964 model built by Miller-Meteor Co. of Ohio, and it was the show car at the National Funeral Directors Assn. convention. Funeral home director Vernon O’Neal purchased it there in October 1963, a month before the assassination.
In the late 1960s, the O’Neal funeral home went out of business, and the hearse was sold. About a decade later, the title passed to Arrdeen Vaughan, now a hearse dealer in Texas. Vaughan restored the hearse and put it up for auction in 2007 at the Lakewood Yacht Club in Seabrook, Texas.
Vaughan set an asking price of $1 million, and stuck to it, turning down a bid of more than $900,000.
When the hearse was put on the block again in 2009, the high bid was only $165,000 and was not accepted. The current owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, is being represented at this week's auction by Mesa, Ariz.-based Desert Autosport.
"It is titled to us and we have copies of the previous titles," the owner says on the auction website.
Until recently, the hearse was listed on eBay for $1.5 million, according to a post on the Antique Automobile Club of America’s website. Barrett-Jackson has no asking price set for the hearse, meaning there will be no minimum starting bid.
The Times spoke with Steve Lichtman, who serves on the board of directors of the Lafayette, N.J.-based Professional Car Society. The association has about 1,200 members, many of whom have been awaiting the auction of the hearse.
How do we know this is the actual hearse that transported Kennedy's body?
We have kept track of this car over the years. People have seen it; they know that it has the correct serial number. Various members of the club have seen it, and the history is correct. We know who has owned it and where it has been.
Does it look the way it did back then?
A collector -- a member of our club -- owned it after the second funeral home painted it a brown, sort of a dark gold color, and he repainted it white and restored it in the 1990s.
There was some debate when this same car auction company sold an ambulance that it said had transported Kennedy after the assassination. Some people believed the real vehicle had already been destroyed in a junkyard. Was the ambulance authentic?
Unlike the hearse, the ambulance was government-owned, and we had to track down its ultimate demise. There was ample evidence that the ambulance had been crushed and destroyed.
How did you confirm that?
We contacted the Sixth Floor Museum [in Dallas] for archival information on both vehicles. Last year, we also contacted the Kennedy Library, which had signed affidavits.
When I spoke to the woman there, I said, "What would seal the deal is if we had a picture of the ambulance in he crusher.” She said, "Give me 15 minutes," and it was in my inbox.
Who ended up buying the ambulance?
It was bought by a museum and put on display in Grand Junction, Colo.
But you're pretty convinced that the hearse is authentic?
Members of the club have photographed the hearse over the years. This really is the correct car. I'm willing to say when it's wrong, but also when it's right.
How much do you think people will bid for it?
It's hard to say the value. The value that is going to come with it is the value that people place on a collectible that relates to President Kennedy’s assassination.
There's nothing to compare it to. It’s going to be a wait-and-see thing what the value is.
Will the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination make a difference in terms of the hearse's significance to collectors?
I'm not sure. There are a lot of us that feel this is sort of a morbid reminder of the assassination. It may be something that people may not want. But clearly there would be antique car museums interested.
What happened to the convertible Kennedy was riding in when he was shot?
The convertible is at the Henry Ford museum in Michigan. It was modified after the assassination by the Secret Service with a hardtop roof. - latimesblog
