I don't talk about UFOs for a day: 12 stitches for President Obama after errant elbow during a pickup basketball game

BEST WISHES FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY, MR PRESIDENT !

Title: "President Obama hit with elbow during pickup game"
from: www.nba.com
published: Nov 27 2010


"President Barack Obama needed 12 stitches in his upper lip after taking an errant elbow during a pickup basketball game Friday morning with family and friends visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday, the White House said.
First word of the injury came in a statement from press secretary Robert Gibbs nearly three hours after the incident.
The White House did not initially name the person who caused the injury, but identified him later Friday as Rey Decerega, director of programs for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute.
Obama received the stitches under local anesthesia in the doctor's office on the ground floor of the White House after returning home. Doctors used a smaller filament than typically used, which increases the number of stitches but makes a tighter stitch and leaves a smaller scar.
The president had gone to nearby Fort McNair to indulge in a game of basketball, one of his favorite athletic pursuits. It was a five-on-five contest involving family and friends. Among the players were Obama's nephew, Avery Robinson, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Reggie Love, Obama's personal assistant, who played at Duke University.
The White House said the injury happened during their fifth and final game when Decerega turned to take a shot and hit Obama, who was playing defense, in the mouth with his elbow.
Obama emerged from the building after about 90 minutes of play, wearing a short-sleeve T-shirt and gym pants, and was seen dabbing at his mouth with what appeared to be a wad of gauze. A few hours later, reporters who had gathered on the White House driveway for the arrival of the Christmas tree saw the president in an upstairs window, pressing an ice pack against his mouth before he stood and walked away.
"After being inadvertently hit with an opposing player's elbow in the lip while playing basketball with friends and family, the president received 12 stitches today administered by the White House Medical Unit," Gibbs said.
Decerega issued a statement through the White House late Friday. He did not immediately respond to an e-mail request from The Associated Press for independent comment.
"I learned today the president is both a tough competitor and a good sport," the statement said. "I enjoyed playing basketball with him this morning. I'm sure he'll be back out on the court again soon."
Obama's motorcade obeyed all traffic stops, the custom for nonofficial trips, during the return to the White House.
In February, Obama, 49, was deemed to be in excellent health and fit for duty after his first medical checkup as president. Doctors reported then that Obama had yet to kick a smoking habit, takes anti-inflammatory medication to relieve chronic tendinitis in his left knee and should make dietary changes to reduce his cholesterol levels.
Obama was told to return for another physical exam in August 2011, after he turns 50. In addition to regular pickup basketball games, Obama is also an avid golfer.
Obama had no public events scheduled during the long holiday weekend.
His stitched lip, however, could make for some interesting small talk on Tuesday, when Obama is to meet with the congressional leadership. The session originally was announced for Nov. 18, but was delayed after Republicans, who will control the House and increase their numbers in the Senate come January, said they couldn't accommodate the president.
Medical help is always nearby for U.S. presidents. A doctor or nurse is stationed at the White House around the clock and accompanies the president in his motorcade and aboard Air Force One.
Recent presidents have had a number of medical scares.
George W. Bush choked on a pretzel and briefly lost consciousness, falling and hurting his head. Bill Clinton had surgery and used crutches for months for a torn tendon in his knee when he stumbled on steps at the Florida home of golf pro Greg Norman.
The elder Bush, George H.W. Bush, was hospitalized for an erratic heartbeat while jogging at Camp David, a problem later diagnosed as a thyroid ailment. The senior Bush also collapsed at a state dinner in Tokyo, which the White House blamed on an intestinal flu.
Jimmy Carter fainted briefly while jogging near Camp David. Ronald Reagan was shot in the chest in a 1981 assassination attempt.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney, 69, has had five heart attacks since age 37. He had surgery this year to install a pump to help his heart work. Cheney said he has congestive heart failure."

New WikiLeaks disclosure: U.S. embassies across the world are on alert

title: "U.S. embassies warn allies of possible fallout from new WikiLeaks disclosure"
from : www.washingtonpost.com
author: Glenn Kessler
published:November 25, 2010

"U.S. embassies around the world are warning allies that WikiLeaks might be poised to release classified cables that could negatively impact relations by revealing sensitive assessments and exposing U.S. sources, a State Department spokesman said Thursday.
The State Department has prepared for the possible release - which WikiLeaks has said would be seven times larger than the Iraq files released last month - by reviewing thousands of diplomatic cables and "assessing the potential consequences of the public release of these documents," spokesman P.J. Crowley said.
Crowley said State does not know "exactly what WikiLeaks has or what they plan to do," but the consequences to American interests could be severe. The cables, for instance, could reveal that senior government officials in other countries are the sources of embarrassing information about the inner workings of those governments, thus making it more difficult for the State Department to obtain such intelligence in the future.
"Without getting into specifics, typical cables describe summaries of meetings, analysis of events in other countries and records of confidential conversations with officials of other governments and with members of civil society," Crowley said. "They are classified for a very good reason. They contain sensitive information and reveal sources of information that impact our national interests and those of other countries."
Crowley added that "the lives of people who provide us valuable information and perspective are being put at risk. They help us understand what is happening around the world and inform our policies and actions."
WikiLeaks has bedeviled the Obama administration with a series of damaging revelations about U.S. policy overseas. In July, it released more than 70,000 military reports on the war in Afghanistan and in October nearly 400,000 reports on the Iraq war. "Next release is 7 [times] the size of the Iraq War Logs," WikiLeaks stated in a posting on its Twitter page Nov. 21.
WikiLeaks has not disclosed the source of the materials. But suspicion has centered on Pfc. Bradley Manning, 22, an Army intelligence analyst whom the military arrested this year, charging him with the downloading and transfer of classified material.
In the past, WikiLeaks has provided a small group of news organizations with an advance peek at the information, with an understanding that their reports would be released simultaneously at a pre-agreed time. The Washington Post has never been part of such an arrangement with WikiLeaks.
WikiLeaks was founded in 2006 by a former computer hacker, Julian Assange. The organization has been under stress in recent months, with several members quitting, citing differences with Assange and the direction of the group. Assange is facing allegations in Sweden of rape and sexual harassment, which he has denied, saying the charges are part of a U.S.-orchestrated smear campaign.
The cables could also show that allies sometimes take private actions that directly contradict publicly declared policies. The London-based daily al-Hayat reported that WikiLeaks is planning to release files that show Turkey has helped al-Qaeda in Iraq - and that the United States has helped the PKK, a Kurdish rebel organization. The documents reportedly suggest that the U.S. has supported the PKK, which has been waging a separatist war against Turkey since 1984 and has been classified by the State Department as a terrorist organization since 1979.
News reports from around the globe indicate that foreign governments are bracing for the impact of the revelations.
U.S. ambassador to Canada David Jacobson has already phoned Minister of Foreign Affairs Lawrence Cannon to inform him of the matter, the Foreign Affairs department told the Canadian Press. Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Melissa Lantsman said the Canadian Embassy in Washington is "currently engaging" with the U.S. State Department on the matter.
In Australia, the Department of Foreign Affairs and other agencies in Canberra, including the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, met to discuss the leaks, which a senior Australian government official said had prompted a "strong measure of concern," according to the Australian newspaper. "The whole thing is pretty big," the official said.
"We condemn what WikiLeaks is doing," Crowley said. "Its actions are gratuitous, harm relations among countries and erode the trust that enables governments to cooperate and collaborate and work together to resolve regional and global challenges. Little good will come from what WikiLeaks has indicated it plans to do.""

I believe that soon we will have new records on UFO (?!) ... maybe ...
Mr. President, hurry!

title: "UFO files declassified claim"
from: www.aimdigital.com.ar
published: 19-11-2010

"Experts of the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects (UFO) demanding the declassification of files requested earlier this year, informed the president of AIM UFO Museum Victoria, Silvia Pérez Simondini, adding that Congress made in different countries "to show people work and understand that is science and technology. "
In dialogue with the Agency, the researcher called for declassification of the National Archives on UFO cases in history of Argentina. " Therefore, "engage in various conferences in several countries to show work to people and understand that is science and technology."
In these activities, "you connect with all agencies, especially military institutions," which "will activate the awareness of the declassification in Argentina, because in other countries" is already done. "
Ufology "is taken seriously in the world." Brazil "was more than 4000 cases" and Uruguay also provided records of similar experiences. " These countries "open the doors to the community to find evidence and provide technology support," he stressed. Thus, "our country will catch up and let people know that these events happen in our territory," he said.

Contest
Currently, "we await the outcome of the contest to which were invited from the Ministry of Science and Technology of the nation." 140 jobs are evaluated and "we are excited by the announcement, because if we are recognized, it will lead to talk about it, because reality exists and is in our country."

Declassification
As anticipated here last June (see http://www.aimdigital.com.ar/ver_noticias.php?id_nota=104551), is to develop a project to ask legislators from both houses to declassify the files that record these events in the country and for that, "it takes 100 thousand signatures in total."

UFOs at Oxford University


Title: "UFOs and Nukes Lecture at Oxford University"
From: www.pressdispensary.co.uk
Published: 2010-11-10


"November 10, 2010 - Press Dispensary - UFOs and Nukes Lecture at Oxford University
What: A lecture by Robert Hastings titled “UFOs: The Secret Story”
Where: Oxford University - Jacqueline Du Pre Auditorium at St Hilda's College
When: Wednesday, November 24, 2010 7:30 P.M. Ticketed Admission Only
Contact: Robert Hastings 505-263-3815 (New Mexico, USA)
Tickets: http://www.eventelephant.com/hastingslecture
Media: Admission free with ID. No seating available—standing room only

“UFOs: The Secret Story” is a 60-minute lecture concerning the U.S. government’s covert response to UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites and is based on hundreds of U.S. Air Force, FBI and CIA documents declassified via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), as well as the testimony of 120 former or retired U.S. military personnel interviewed by Hastings.
The documents confirm that UFOs do indeed exist and further reveal that these mysterious aerial objects are of the greatest concern to the U.S. Air Force and various American intelligence agencies. Consequently, the files completely contradict frequent public denials about the UFO reality issued over the years by official spokesmen in Washington.
Specifically, the documents refer to UFOs repeatedly violating highly-sensitive airspace over nuclear weapons sites, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where nuclear weapons are designed. Other documents concern UFOs hovering above nuclear missile launch silos or nuclear bomb storage bunkers. Still others refer to attempted aerial intercepts of UFOs by military jet fighters. So far as is known, all of these efforts have been unsuccessful.
On September 27, 2010, Hastings co-sponsored the “UFO-Nukes Connection” press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. during which seven former or retired U.S. Air Force personnel divulged their direct or indirect knowledge of incidents of UFO activity at nuclear weapons sites during the Cold War era. The media event was streamed live by CNN and countless articles and broadcast stories about it have appeared worldwide. A video of the press conference, with subtitles, may be viewed at:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jUU4Z8QdHI

One of the event’s participants, retired USAF Col. Charles Halt, discussed his involvement in the famous Rendlesham Forest/RAF Bentwaters UFO incidents, in Suffolk, in December 1980. Halt revealed that one of the UFOs briefly hovered near the base nuclear Weapons Storage Area (WSA) and directed laser-like beams of light down into or near it.
Hastings has interviewed a number of ex-USAF Security Policemen who witnessed a UFO presence at the Bentwaters WSA, on more than one night, as well as the two controllers on duty at the base air traffic control tower during the week-long period of UFO activity, both of whom confirm tracking an anomalous aerial object on radar as it raced in and momentarily hovered not far from them. One of controllers, Ike Barker, observed the orange-colored, spherical-shaped craft out of the window.

A follow-up interview with Hastings on CNN’s American Morning program may be viewed at:
www.disclose.tv

Hastings also appeared on CNN’s Larry King Live on July 18, 2008, together with former U.S. Air Force officers who had been involved in nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. Two of them, missile launch officer Robert Salas and targeting officer Robert Jamison, say that an entire “flight” of ten Minuteman missiles mysteriously malfunctioned just as a UFO was sighted hovering above the flight’s launch control facility, outside of Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, in March 1967. Hastings has interviewed other Air Force missile personnel who describe identical events occurring at other Air Force missile bases.

The King program may be viewed at

Hastings, an independent UFO researcher and lecturer, says that his interest in UFOs also began in 1967, when he was present at the air traffic control tower at Malmstrom, during a two-week period of intermittent UFO activity at the base’s missile sites. “One night, five UFOs were tracked on radar for several minutes”, he recounts, “and jets were launched to intercept them. I later learned from Air Force sources that as the jets closed in, the UFOs performed a vertical ascent and left the area at enormous speed—far beyond the capability of any aircraft.”
Since that incident, Hastings has devoted countless hours researching UFOs and the U.S. government’s covert response to them. He has spoken at over 500 American colleges and universities since 1981, in an effort to bring to the public the intriguing information he and other researchers have obtained. His book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites is available at www.ufohastings.com
“I am not condemning any government agency for its policy of secrecy regarding UFOs,” says Hastings, “but I believe that the American public, and people everywhere, should be given the facts.”
From 1988 to 2002, Hastings was employed as a laboratory analyst by Philips Semiconductors in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is now retired from that field and devotes full time to UFO investigations."

Ufo disclosure from Chilean Army officer

title: "Chilean Army officer publishes book on pilot UFO cases"
from: www.openminds.tv
author: Antonio Huneeus
published: Nov 09, 2010

"Rodrigo Bravo Garrido, a Captain and pilot for BAVE (Spanish acronym for Aviation Brigade of the Chilean Army) has just published a new book, Ufología Aeronáutica, with the subtitle of “A New Concept in UFO Studies.” As show by the title, the book deals with pilot UFO encounters, discussing in detail a total of 23 cases in which Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) was reported by pilots or air traffic control personnel. 11 cases occurred in Chile and 12 in other countries (Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, France, Iran and USA). The book, coauthored with paleontologist Juan Castillo and published by Mago Editores, was released last Thursday November 4th at the Book Fair in Santiago.
Capt. Bravo is not an unknown figure in American or international ufology. He was one of many officials who talked at the famous National Press Club (NPC) event in Washington, DC in November of 2007, organized by filmmaker James Fox and journalist Leslie Kean. Bravo outlined a few aviation cases in Chile at this event, including a near-collision incident with a Boeing 737 airliner “on a final approach to the runway at the El Tepual Airport in Puerto Montt City” in 1988, and a radar-visual sighting in 2000. “The crew of a Chilean plane from the Aviation branch of the Army, flying south of Santiago,” stated Bravo at the NPC, “observed a long cigar-shaped object, a brilliant gray. It flew parallel to the right side of the aircraft for two minutes and then disappeared at a very high speed. This objet was detected by the radar of the Control Center of Santiago which notified the crew minutes before the incident.”
Capt. Bravo was also one of the nineteen contributors who wrote essays for Leslie Kean’s recent bestselling book, UFOs – Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go On the Record (Harmony Books), reviewed earlier in this website by this author. He is, in fact, the only one still in active service. What is interesting is that he became involved with UFOs as part of an official military assignment. In his essay for Kean’s book, “Aeronautics Research of the UFO Phenomenon and the Problem with Science,” Capt. Bravo wrote that “in 2000, at the age of twenty-four, I was training to become a military pilot. For my thesis, submitted the following year, I was assigned to pursue research into anomalous aerial phenomena in order to determine their affect and impact on aerospace security. The aviation branch of the Army of Chile, BAVE, had in its files many reports from military pilots describing incidents during flight involving aerial phenomena that did not correspond to normal air traffic. These incidents posed a potential threat to air safety.” Later in the essay, Bravo added that “after conducting this investigation, I concluded in my thesis that UFOs are physically real and their presence in our skies is concrete. However, difficulties arise when we try to study their behavior, because of the complexity of the phenomenon and because of our inability to predict UFO events.”
Bravo has now expanded his thesis into a full book, where he can analyze in detail 23 aeronautical cases and their implications to air flight security. He also criticizes the poor standards of many ufologists who tend to lump all UAPs “indiscriminately with the possibility of extraterrestrial life.” This can “detour” serious research and lead instead to the “explosive growth of new ideologies, movements, cults and others who take anomalous aerial phenomena even further away from its real context for reasons of financial gain.” During the release of his book at Santiago’s Book Fair, Bravo added that “the scientific community has avoided for decades dealing with this subject because those who investigate it don’t necessarily have sufficient knowledge to interpret the available data.” Although true in many cases, this statement is somewhat unfair since, given the reluctance by scientists and official institutions to get involved with UFO research, ufologists are simply filling a void—for better or worse. That was precisely the comment made by journalist and ufologist Juan Andrés Salfate at the Book Fair event. “The subject doesn’t have an owner, the worse that can happen is that it remains in the military and scientific field,” said Salfate.

NEW AERIAL ENCOUNTERS CLASSIFICATION
In an effort to improve the quality of the research, Capt. Bravo proposes in Ufología Aeronáutica an expanded terminology for pilots cases based on Dr. Hynek’s famous “Close Encounters” classification. These are:

Aerial Encounter of the First Kind, in which the pilot, the crew and the passengers, as well as ATC (Air Traffic Control) personnel only see an object or a light at a relative distance from the aircraft, which provokes alarm or discomfort to the crew or personnel in the control facility.
Aerial Encounter of the Second Kind, in which besides the elements cited above, the object or objects are detected by ground radar or aircraft radar.
Aerial Encounter of the Third Kind, in which besides the near or far presence of an object, it causes an interference with onboard [aircraft] instruments, which constitutes a danger for the normal flight operation of an aircraft.
Aerial Encounter of the Fourth Kind is that in which, following all the events cited above, an aircraft is obliged to make an evasive maneuver to avoid a collision with the object observed.
Aerial Encounter of the Fifth Kind would be that in which, following all the events cited above, a combat aircraft is obliged to have a military engagement with the object in question.

THE PUERTO MONTT NEAR COLLISION CASE
One of the Chilean cases discussed in Capt. Bravo’s book is a near-collision case between an airliner and a UFO in 1988 near the El Tepual airport in Puerto Montt, a city in southern Chile. This is an AE-IV according to Bravo’s new classification. The case was actually revealed many years ago in Información Aeronáutica, the official magazine of Chile’s General Administration of Civil Aeronautics (DGAC, the equivalent of our FAA). The report and transcript of the radio communications between the pilot and the control tower was written by Air Traffic Controller Gustavo Rodríguez Navarro, who later became Secretary of CEFAA, the Chilean government’s Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena, which is under the DGAC. The incident in question occurred on June 1, 1988 as Chilean Air Lines (LAN) Boeing 737 flight 045 (La045) was approaching the El Tepual airport. Here is an excerpt of the radio transcript around midnight between La045 and ACC (Area Control Center):

La045: Puerto Montt Center, can you tell me if you have some traffic in front of you?

ACC [Area Control Center]: Confirm what?

La045: Just in front… I have an airplane just in front!

ACC: No, negative.

La045: Listen, I have an airplane, I have a light here in front, right on our flight path.

The controller looked out the window and saw indeed “a white light coming to the airport from the north.” He followed the light’s path for about 5 minutes and at one point was able to see the object closer: “This object came to about 1500 meters from my position, always to the north and that was the nearest I saw it… I could observe some flashes of light coming from the lower part, which lighted the lower part or base of the object; I had the impression that this lower part was flat and with a metallic aspect; I estimate that it was circular and with a diameter of about 60 meters.”

Meanwhile, the communication between La045 and ACC was becoming frantic. The pilot mentioned four times the words, “I had a near collision,” and the supervising controller at the Tower also saw the object with binoculars. Another sample from the transcript:

La045: Do you still have the traffic in sight, or not?

ACC: I am losing it and according to the… the radar is not detecting the traffic.

La045: At the moment, I don’t… also… we don’t see it, but it was on a collision path with us.

ACC: I am seeing it again.

La045: There, I can see it again, to the right, to the right, I am seeing it!

Flight 045 landed in Puerto Montt without further disturbances. The pilot’s language on the tape was uninhibited, excited and with Chilean slang, like that of someone who has just lived an intense experience. The fact that the UFO was simultaneously observed by the crew and from the ground leaves little doubt that this was a real object
We are looking forward to read the other pilot cases discussed in Capt. Bravo’s book and hoping that this new worthwhile effort will shake up things a bit in aviation and scientific circles and lead to further research in this important area.

Mysterious missile launch just off the coast of Southern California: what's happen in the sky ?

title: "Pentagon Can't Explain "Missile" off California"
from: www.cbsnews.com
published: Nov. 9, 2010

"Military Investigating Video that Shows Mystery Object Shooting into Sky

The Pentagon Tuesday said it was trying to determine if a missile was launched Monday off the coast of Southern California and who might have launched it.
Spokesmen for the Navy, Air Force, Defense Department and North American Aerospace Defense Command said they were looking into a video posted on the CBS News website that appears to show a rocket or some other object shooting up into the sky and leaving a large contrail over the Pacific Ocean.
The video was shot by a CBS affiliate KCBS' helicopter, the station said Tuesday.
"Nobody within the Department of Defense that we've reached out to has been able to explain what this contrail is, where it came from," Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said. "So far, we've come up empty with any explanation."
Lapan said officials are talking to the Air Force, Navy and NORAD as well as civilian authorities who control and monitor air space.
"Right now, all indications are that there was not (Department of Defense) involvement in this," Lapan said, adding that some object might have been launched by a private company.
The FAA told CBS News that they ran radar replays of a large area west of Los Angeles based on media reports of the location of a possible missile launch, but they did not reveal any fast moving unidentified targets in that area. The FAA also did not receive any reports of any unusual sightings from pilots in the area.
Missile tests are common off Southern California. Launches are conducted from vessels and platforms on an ocean range west of Point Mugu.
The North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, issued a statement jointly with the U.S. Northern Command, or NORTHCOM, saying that the contrail was not the result of a foreign military launching a missile. It provided no further details.
"We can confirm that there is no threat to our nation, and from all indications this was not a launch by a foreign military," the statement said. "We will provide more information as it becomes available."
NORTHCOM is the U.S. defense command and NORAD is a U.S.-Canadian organization charged with protecting the U.S. from the threat of missiles or hostile aircraft.
CBS station KFMB showed video of the apparent missile to former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth, who is also a former Deputy Secretary of Defense, to get his thoughts.
"It's spectacular… It takes people's breath away," said Ellsworth, calling the projectile, "a big missile".
Officials had no information to make them suspect that the action was taken by any U.S. adversary.
"At this point, until we know more information about what it may have been, there is not alarm," Lapan said. "But that could change depending on what we find out." "

Project Dorothy: 50th Anniversary of Search for Extraterrestrials through New Observing Project

title: "50th Anniversary Of SETI Commemorated With New Observing Project"
from: www.spacedaily.com
author: Staff Writers
published: Nov 04, 2010

"This week astronomers from twelve countries on six continents will mark the fiftieth anniversary of the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) by beginning a coordinated series of observations of several nearby stars - including two stars that were the target of the first search.
To demonstrate the advances in SETI over the past half century, on November 5, 2010, astronomers in Australia, Japan, and Korea will begin observations for radio and laser signals from civilizations circling these stars, followed over the next day by SETI searches in Italy, the Netherlands, France, Argentina, and the United States. Additional observations will take place in late November 2010.
The first SETI experiment, Project Ozma, was conducted in April 1960 by astronomer Frank Drake, now at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California. Project Ozma - named after the book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" - listened for radio signals from extraterrestrial civilizations and started a new field of science.
To commemorate this first search and the advances in SETI science and technology over the past half century, astronomer Shin-ya Narusawa of Nishi-Harima Astronomical Observatory in Japan launched Project Dorothy, named after the heroine of the same story.
"It is thrilling for me to witness the beginnings of Project Dorothy, the continuation of my search of fifty years ago," said Drake.
"To have so many talented people using so many telescopes in this new search, with the electronics and computer equipment of today, is a joyful thing to me. The equipment of today is far better than what we could have fifty years ago, and will result in both very much better and very much more data than could be obtained then."
"Two of the original stars from Project Ozma - Tau Ceti and Epsilon Eridani - are the nearest solar-type stars in the northern hemisphere," explained Narusawa. "Therefore, these two stars were the best SETI targets a half century ago. They remain the symbol of project Ozma and are two of the target stars for Project Dorothy," he added.
"But astronomy has improved over the last five decades, and about five hundred planets have been discovered around other stars. Some of these stellar systems have planets located the right distance from their stars to support life. We also included such stars among the targets of Project Dorothy."
"Project Dorothy vividly demonstrates just how far SETI has come in the past fifty years," said the SETI Institute's Douglas Vakoch, who is a member of Project Dorothy's Working Group.
"Astronomers can now do SETI research at observatories from South Africa to the Netherlands, from Argentina to India, from Japan to Italy, as well as from the longstanding American projects at the SETI Institute, the University of California at Berkeley, and Harvard University. The lessons learned through Project Dorothy provide critical preparation for the day we finally detect a signal from another civilization,"
Vakoch explained. Because of the daily rotation of the Earth, many stars are visible for only a portion of the day from a single observatory. "By learning how to coordinate international SETI observations now, we'll be better prepared to track a signal continuously, around the world, after first contact," he said.
"Over the past fifty years our searches have not yet produced the discovery we all hope for," said Drake.
"This is understandable - in our vast and awesome universe it will take long, painstaking, and comprehensive searches before we will have a good chance of success. This is the major lesson learned from previous searches. Project Dorothy is a major step in meeting the challenge created by this lesson."
The SETI Institute will observe five target stars using the Allen Telescope Array (ATA), located in northern California. The ATA will examine these stars between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time, November 6, 2010."

"Crop circles, also known in their English diction crop circles were raised, since their first appearances, a special fascination and interest in esoteric scientific theory to understand the nature of and reasons for their presence.
Following the growing number of appearances of crop circles (especially in England) from the end of the seventies, the phenomenon has become the target of the investigation to determine the genesis of these hard-working figures. Various theories have been developed to explain the birth: only human intervention (figures created by man, mainly as a joke or artistic expression) to the paranormal and UFO: aliens, in essence, deliberately left traces of their passage through Earth's drawing complex geometric figures, within which is a hidden message in support of their existence.
Some of these recent efforts have been made to try to interpret the message by using the usual mathematical application. In the past, their message has always been very dark and often implied information were not readily identifiable and, moreover, almost never clear in their meaning. Except this time, for three recent crop circles (May 22 Wilton Windmill - UK, June 13 Poirino - TO - Italy, June 21 Vale of Pewsey - UK), the message hidden in them seems clear by applying mathematical formulas and code ASCII:
"We do crop circles with this design we want to specify the date that we had in the previous drawing inaccurate, and therefore need to consider is the date November 24, 2010."
What should happen on this date? Where else would prophecy to come true? Among the more fanciful theories that are read in various forums and blogs dedicated to the expected event, two of them emerge from the opposite meaning: for many November 24 will be clear and unequivocal manifestation of the aliens (too obvious), for others it will be outbreak of World War III, referring back to the prophecies of old prophets as Baba Vanga and Matthias Stormberger. The birth of new consciousness through alien intervention or the end of an era because of human folly?
One thing is certain: the story has always been invaded by prophecies about specific moments that were supposed to mean something very important for humanity (predictions of wars, disasters, disease, violence, aliens). Prophecies promptly denied. In other cases, they point to the skeptics, we are often aware of a prophecy after the event "predicted" has occurred, giving it the appearance of simple urban legend and many prophets post eventum the reputation of charlatans.
So, even before 2012, mankind will have to do with November 24? Do nothing but wait."

UK 1980, Rendlesham Forest: UFO tape released 30 years later

"Tape recordings of US military personnel investigating a suspected UFO landing have been released 30 years later.

In the dead of the night just after Christmas 1980, the airmen from USAF Bentwaters air base went to investigate an event in Rendlesham Forest near Woodbridge, Suffolk.
The tapes are a vivid account of what they found.
The servicemen were led by Col Charles Halt, second in command at the base.
It is clear that they thought they were witnessing some type of phenomena, with descriptions of "strange" lights in sky and odd damage to pine trees 15ft to 18ft off the ground.
One of the Americans is heard to say: "I hear very strange sounds of farmers - barnyard animals. They're very, very active, making a lot of noise.
"Straight ahead. There it is again. Straight ahead. What is it? A strange small red light.
"It looks maybe half a mile further ahead. Go back to the edge of the clearing, see if we can get a look at it... the animals have gone quiet now... It is deathly calm."
He adds in hushed tones: "There is no doubt about it - it is a strange flashing red light ahead.
"I saw a yellow tinge in it too. Weird. It's coming this way. It's definitely coming this way.
"There is no doubt about it. This is weird."
Despite endless speculation, there has never been a definitive answer to what actually happened that bizarre night.
There are a number of different theories; everything from aliens landing and lights from a lighthouse at nearby Orford to a mishap which was covered up."

China 1998: Chinese Airforce admits to UFO encounter

"The Chinese air-force has admitted that pilots of F-6 aircraft chased two UFOs but were ultimately unable to keep up with them, the pilots did get a good view of the objects and were able to describe them in great detail. This UFO event occurred October 1998.
Astonishingly these events were witnessed by a famous Aeronautical scientist and a Major general as well as being tracked by airport control towers and seen by hundreds of staff.
The pilots and ground staff initially saw the UFOs as lights in the sky but on getting close described them as 'glowing fireballs', shaped like 'straw hats' or 'mushrooms'
"Curved top, flat bottom, the bottom rows and rows of lights, beam down, the edge of a red light, the whole shaped like a huge straw hat!" noted one pilot.
The pilots climbed 12,000 feet and the UFO craft ascended to 20,000feet and then vanished from both their sight and airport radar.
Bizarrely the same scene repeated itself at another air-force base days later."

NASA Astronaut confirms: Extraterrestrials are real

Title: "Famed NASA Astronaut confirms Extraterrestrials are here"
from: www.agoracosmopolitan.com
author: by Clark C. McClelland, former ScO, U.S. Space Shuttle Fleet, KSC, Florida 1958 to 1992

"Space Shuttle Columbia during STS-80 took a crew of five astronauts into a 17 day, 15 hour and 54 minute mission around the earth, the longest flight in the history of this vehicle. During this lengthy flight a very strange event occurred that even had crewman Dr. Story Musgrave unable to explain what he observed from the shuttle windows.
A large disc shaped object appeared below the Columbia. The shuttle was approximately, 190 Nautical miles high.
The disc was first observed to miraculously appear from out of nowhere, flying through the clouds below and progressing from right to left as the astronauts stared in utter amazement. The outer rim of the craft appeared to be rotating counter-clockwise. It was very large (compared to common space junk and breakaway ice), approximately 50 to 150 feet in diameter.
Astronaut Dr. Story Musgrave, a Payload Specialist on the STS-80 Mission, was interviewed following the flight. As he viewed a videotape of the incident which showed lightning flashes in the atmosphere, the city lights of Denver, Colorado and other earthbound sights, he stated: "I don't know what it is. Whether it's a washer, debris, ice particles, I don't know. But it's characteristic of the thousands of things which I've seen. What is not so characteristic is it appears to come from no where. You would think that if it's facing the dark side or facing a side towards you which is not reflecting the sun, you would think that you would see something there. It's really impressive."
During an earlier interview, Dr. Musgrave stated he attempted to communicate with ET life forms during each of his six missions. He actually asked them to take him with them. Now that's an astronaut with a lot of courage. Dr. Musgrave retired after this flight from NASA. Since then he's been spreading his considered opinion that alien life exists. When Musgrave speaks of this, it's no great leap for one to assume he's admitting knowledge of alien life. As the final slide of a "Grey" ET was shown during a recent astronomy presentation by Dr. Musgrave, he made this surprising comment: "These guys are real... I guarantee it!" Dr. Musgrave does know the truth. This author guarantees it!

Consider that carefully. These are world renown scientists making statements almost beyond belief. Dr. von Braun and others of his stature have the courage to disclose "sensitive" information, but obviously the leaders of the USA and the world do not. If billions could find a way of coping with the overwhelming threat of atomic annihilation for half a century, it is reasonable to assume we can cope with the knowledge of these "Other Intelligence's" from the stars. We can cope with the fact they are visiting earth, and have been since the beginning of history. We must. Those still asleep must open their eyes. We Are Not Alone.
