Daily 2 Cents: 'Smirking' Humanoid / Cloaking UFO -- Recent San Andreas Fault Concerns -- Hovering Light in the Mountains

'Smirking' Humanoid / Cloaking UFO

Vanderbilt, MI - 2015-07-10 - 10:00AM: I was outside working in my garden. I had a feeling I was being watched and I looked up and noticed this metal looking plane like with glass where the pilot was and he looked human with brown shoulder length hair and was just hovering over the ground about 20ft up and slowly moving south and he had a smirk on his face as if he was plain in sight and I still could not see him. As soon as I looked up at him it startled him and he then worked some of the controls and it sounded like a motor start and then he cloaked himself to where he matched the clouds like he was invisible as he took off. This was the only time this has happened besides seeing large glowing lights that look like stars but much bigger acting like they were in orbit. - MUFON CMS


Recent San Andreas Fault Concerns

The rumbling started Monday morning deep under the Salton Sea. A rapid succession of small earthquakes — three measuring above magnitude 4.0 — began rupturing near Bombay Beach, continuing for more than 24 hours. Before the swarm started to fade, more than 200 earthquakes had been recorded.

The temblors were not felt over a very large area, but they have garnered intense interest — and concern — among seismologists. It marked only the third time since earthquake sensors were installed there in 1932 that the area had seen such a swarm, and this one had more earthquakes than the events of 2001 and 2009.

The quakes occurred in one of California’s most seismically complex areas. They hit in a seismic zone just south of where the mighty San Andreas fault ends. It is composed of a web of faults that scientists fear could one day wake up the nearby San Andreas from its long slumber.

Hovering Light in the Mountains

Dayton, NV - 2016-09-27 - 3:20AM: I awoke on the morning of 9/27/16 and looked out the glass bedroom door, toward the mountains to the east, as I often do. I saw a shining "light" that reminded me of U.F.O. I saw three years ago. I got up, got my binoculars, and continued to watch it for 20 minutes. It hovered, then moved to a few different spots. I noticed that it was whitish and occasionally I saw a blue spot. I went to use the rest room, then came back to watch it for a few more minutes. Back in bed, I turned a couple of times, and noticed it moved west. I sat up to look at it hover. I went back to sleep. Later at around 8:00 a.m., I mentioned it to my wife, who said she too saw it when she awoke to use the rest room, at about 1:15 a.m. - MUFON CMS

Vanishing Insectoid Encountered in Sequoia National Forest

Ricky in San Diego, California called in to tell of a terrifying encounter he had while camping in the Sequoia National Forest:

“I just want to share an experience I had about two years ago in the Sequoia National Forest. My sister took my friend and I out there and we were deep deep in the forest, far away from civilization. We were having a great time. I'm a believer in the paranormal, Bigfoot, aliens and all that stuff but while I was there, I never had that thought. I was there camping with my family, having a great time.

At about 9 o'clock, everyone decides to go to sleep and my friend and I were left staring at the bonfire. I decided it was a good time to listen to music so I went to my sister's forerunner and I was opening the back to grab my Ipod. And as I opened the back door, I heard something come out of the tree. It didn't come out of the tree. It was almost like it was holding on and it fell. And I heard this huge thump. I could feel it. And as I... I had a flashlight on me. I looked over at the tree I heard the fall from and I swear on my life and I swear to God, honest to God, I saw a 6 to 7 foot tall praying mantis. And as I laid eyes on it, I completely lost breath. I was completely taken aback. It took a step back and it became completely invisible. I could not believe what I saw.

I slammed the door and I ran back to the campfire. I alerted my friend. I woke everyone up and no one would believe me. I was really upset because I knew what I'd seen. So that happened and my friend didn't believe me. He was laughing at me and then all of a sudden I could hear all these things surrounding us and finally when I brought it to my friend's attention, he kinda put his ear to it and he heard it too. Finally I was patrolling the campground with my flashlight and I could just hear these things surrounding us and I heard like this clicking sound, it was like (makes clicking sound). It was really strange. I was so scared.”

Catholic Church Pleads 'exorcists in urgent demand!'

Exorcists are in urgent demand as a result of a sharp rise in people dabbling in Satanism and the occult, experts from the Catholic Church in Italy and the US said.

Speaking in tongues, levitating and vomiting nails may seem far-fetched to most people, but church experts insist there is a need to recruit more priests as exorcists in order to combat sorcery and black magic.

Valter Cascioli, a psychologist and scientific consultant to the International Association of Exorcists, which is endorsed by the Vatican, described as an “emergency” the lack of priests capable of fighting the forces of evil.

“The lack of exorcists is a real emergency. There is a pastoral emergency as a result of a significant increase in the number of diabolical possessions that exorcist priests are confronting,” he told La Stampa newspaper.

“The number of people who take part in occult and satanic practices, which lead to serious physical, psychological and spiritual damages, is constantly rising.” Read more at 'Emergency' need for exorcists after surge in people dabbling in Satanism and black magic


Possible Bigfoot Captured on Eagle Nest Cam

A live feed from an eagle's nest in Michigan has recorded a mysterious figure wandering around below.

Situated in a tall tree at the Platte River State Fish Hatchery near Beulah, Northern Michigan, this nest of Bald Eagle chicks is being monitored online using a special live camera feed setup.

While checking through the footage archives recently however the team responsible for the feed noticed something unusual - a dark figure skulking around the forest floor far below.

Visible at the top right of the frame as well as in an enlarged segment at the center of the picture, the figure, which appears to be walking upright, has drawn comparisons to the legendary Bigfoot.

Whether the footage really is evidence of the elusive hominid however remains unclear.


MIB Attempt to Kidnap Newborn Child

Debbie in Austin, Texas called in to tell of her strange MIB experience. Nick Redfern was on promoting his book Women In Black where he talked about how MIBs came and took people's newborn children:

“I was born in 1955 in Arizona and when I was 22, I came home and was talking to my mother about some studies I'd done on UFOs and mentioned men in black to her and she got white as a ghost and said: When you were first born your dad answered the door and two men were standing there. They were dressed all in black. They wanted to come in. My dad is a real big guy and he was able to prevent them from coming in the house. They kept saying they wanted to come in and talk about the newborn in the house. That's all my mom told me but that's what she said happened.”

Ouija...Something's Under the Bed!

Cam in Portland, Oregon called in to tell of her Ouija board stories:

“When I was younger and growing up, my sister and I were completely... oh, this is a Ouija story. We were obsessed with the Ouija board. We used to play it nightly, weekly. We got to the point where I didn't think it would work until I would see an apparition. That's how I knew, I thought in my head, it worked. So I decided to make one.

I was pretty artistic as a kid. I went and bought a really nice piece of wood. I painted on the letters and I made a planchette out of wood as all. It's pretty simple. It seemed to work really well. Things started showing up in my house and I would hear something walk across my bedroom at night. I started getting really freaked out. I didn't want to be home. I used to come home on my lunch break and I didn't want to go home because I was too scared to be there by myself.

One day I was in my room and I was playing with toys. I was probably about 12 or 13 at the time and I had a toy by my bed. I wasn't thinking anything paranormal. I used to read about the paranormal too, so I was always obsessed with it. I had the toy by my bed and I remember looking over and thinking I saw something reach out from underneath the bed and grab the toy. Like I... Yeah, I remember it was a brush with a doll and it had a glitter, like these little rhinestone glittery things on them, on one side of it, so it was a pretty brush and I remember it specifically. I thought, Oh my god, I didn't just see that. I didn't see that, you know, it must have just been a shadow or... I was confused. I dropped it and it fell under the bed or something. You know when you see stuff like that, you're... I didn't just see that. You are trying to rationalize what you see. I said, Okay, it's just under there.

I bent down and it's not there. Okay, maybe it just fell way back or I pushed it. I look on my knees, head all the way under the bed. It's not there. I never found it. After that experience, I got real freaked out. I stopped playing with the board I made. My sister took it with her.

A couple of years down the road, she went to college and took it with her. And she said when she started using it again, something came and woke her up. She saw it hovering above her bed. She said it was a black mass. She couldn't see through it. And she knew it was there... she felt like it was looking for her friend. She had been playing the board with her friend. Her friend had left for the evening and she felt like it had come for her friend. I don't know why she said she felt that but that was the distinct feeling she had. She got really freaked out after that and she... I know you're not supposed to do this but she burned it.

She had a Wiccan friend that came in and cleansed the house, or her apartment after that. I wasn't around. I didn't have any part of that. I haven't touched one ever since. (Dave Schrader asks how about seeing the thing under the bed) I was such disbelief at what I saw I thought I somehow maybe I didn't understand. I don't know, the toy was gone though. I never found the toy. I remember, it was a brush with rhinestones on it and I never found it after that.”

A Siren's Song in the Woods

Eric in Philadelphia called in to tell of something strange he saw at summer camp:

“I have a story. I've been trying to figure out for a couple of years what you would call this. It was kind of like a Siren. You've heard them in mythology, a woman singing. This happened out in the middle of the forest, a couple of my friends. We were at a summer camp and, you know, it was a big place with a road going down the middle of all these group camp sites on either side. We were in this last camp spot and this road just keeps going up. One day me and my two friends said, you know, let's walk up there and see where it goes. We went probably a mile and a half and it just ended in this garbage dump-like area. And while we're sitting up there, we just heard this woman singing out in the woods. It was just like a beautiful vocalizing but really really creepy and it kind of like entranced us. We all just walked out into the woods for a little while and came upon this clearing where it seemed like this voice was emanating from. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, there was like this rogue wave of wind that just like flushed through. It scared us out of there and we started running back to the campsite. I've never been able to figure out what it would be called or anything.”

Man Nearly Dies From Paper Cut

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Kennedy Health in South Jersey has been honored nationally for its program to combat sepsis infections which kill more people than heart attacks.

The CDC has declared sepsis a medical emergency that kills 258,000 people a year nationally.

It’s tricky to diagnose, but Kennedy Health has instituted a program in its three hospitals that’s dramatically reduced its sepsis death rate.

Michael Bergers say his life was saved at Kennedy Hospital in Cherry Hill.

“It started from a paper cut”, explains Michael. He had a little cut on his finger that turned into sepsis and a three week medically induced coma.

“It scared the hell out of me, can’t believe that was actually me,” says Michael, who never knew much about sepsis.

It’s often triggered by a flesh eating bacteria that can cause organ failure.

Michael describes the shock, “They said I was circling the drain, I had a 50/50 shot from what they told me, I had a 50/50 shot of living.”

Fortunately, Michael was treated quickly at Kennedy which has a special program that’s reduced deaths from sepsis. It’s often missed because there’s no specific test for sepsis and symptoms can vary.

Marianne Kraemer, the administrative director for infection control at Kennedy Health says, “The ultimate goal is to recognize it, treat it and minimize any side effects a patient may have of sepsis so it doesn’t progress to severe sepsis or septic shock.”

A clock in the emergency department times a quick response.

Kraemer says, “Everybody sees that and recognizes that somewhere in the E.R. there is someone who is septic and all attention goes to that patient.”

And there’s a bundle of interventions that include IV fluids, blood cultures, antibiotics and watching for a change in vital signs.

Michael, who’s grateful says, “I had the exact people I should’ve had to save my life.”

Kennedy Health’s sepsis program has received national attention from the Sepsis Alliance and was just recognized with the Sepsis Hero Award.

Kraemer said about the award, “I was really overwhelmed with the award. It was a lot of work that went into that and a lot of people behind the scenes to really earn that award.”

Michael says he’s completely recovered now and doesn’t know where he picked up the sepsis. While commonly linked to hospital infections, the CDC says 80 percent of sepsis cases happen outside hospital settings. - Man’s Paper Cut Turns Into Life-Threatening Medical Emergency


SpaceX Plans Humans on Mars by 2022

Elon Musk has outlined his extraordinarily ambitious plans to make mankind an interplanetary species.

Speaking at the International Astronautical Congress in Guadalajara, Mexico this week, the SpaceX CEO suggested that a manned mission to Mars could happen within as little as six years.

"What I really want to try to achieve here is to make Mars seem possible - like it's something we can achieve in our lifetimes," he told the audience.

To this end, Musk outlined the design and development of a new multi-stage launch and transport system with a massive reusable rocket booster that would be as long as two Boeing 747 aircraft.

Capable of carrying up to 100 people, this gargantuan booster could be refueled in orbit and may eventually even be able to travel beyond Mars to other worlds such as Jupiter and Saturn.

Musk also suggested that the first ship should be named "Heart of Gold" as a tribute to Douglas Adams' science fiction novel The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

While questions still remain about the cost and technological feasibility of sending humans to Mars so soon, the plans have been generally well received elsewhere in the scientific community.

"NASA applauds all those who want to take the next giant leap - and advance the journey to Mars," NASA said in a statement. "We are very pleased that the global community is working to meet the challenges of a sustainable human presence on Mars."

"This journey will require the best and the brightest minds from government and industry, and the fact that Mars is a major topic of discussion is very encouraging." Read more at SpaceX founder Elon Musk plans to get humans to Mars in six years

UFO Encounter / Lost Time and Possible Contact

Sikeston, MO - 2016-01-23 - 11:02PM: I saw and recorded this light (pictured above) at 11:00 p.m. and realized a time loss at 3:00 a.m.

I left my parents headed home 20 min away. I saw a light with a weird flight pattern. It was fast and amazing with its up and down pattern. I pulled out my phone and started recording. Although that phone quit working and I used a different phone from that day. I have found a picture in my account files and not a video. It was not downloadable. I am confirmed. I have many indications and know something is out there. I do believe they have been to my home since then. Sounds crazy but I have a dreamlike suspicion of them yelling my name and entering my bedroom. I had a circle on my hand afterwards. This is all starting to come back to me and wish I would've noticed this and reported earlier, had I found this sight. - MUFON CMS

NOTE: I hope MUFON follows up on this report. There have been many UFO related instances when an unknown image will record on a cellphone. Very interesting...Lon
