  • Gene Roddenberry Quotes

    Gene Roddenberry was a visionary his legacy remains as Star Trek, here's one of my favourite quotation, just appropriate these days, seen that overwhelming mass-killing and religious wars pop-up everyday.

    Gene Roddenberry

    Within one of the STAR TREK episodes Captain Jean-Luc Picard speaks with Lieutenant Commander Data about philosophy of the past (meaning our days because they are in the future) he mentions "religion" on Planet Earth and he says: (paraphrasing)

    "Did you know that they had wars and killed each other for something called religion?" and DATA is totally shocked so am I, since I was a kid too.

    It's too sad that we aren't already in the future laughing at Planet Earth's absolute idiots!

    Trekkie

    Although Gene Roddenberry passed away October 24, 1991, his legacy remains as Star Trek: The Next Generation continues to flourish and grow in movie theaters, and three television series based upon Star Trek — Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and now Enterprise — maintain his vision of the future.

    While making Star Trek, Roddenberry's reputation as a futurist began to grow. His papers and lectures earned him high professional regard as a visionary. He spoke on the subject at NASA meetings, the Smithsonian Institution, Library of Congress gatherings, and top universities

  • Virginia earthquake felt in Washington

    Have you ever been in the middle of an earthquake? I have several times, but they were mild earthquakes, no damages, just a stand still quake, a couple of years ago we had one in Quebec, no one felt it but my dog and I. My dog suddenly jumped up and he spread his legs and remained in the middle of the living room frozen as if he was waiting to catch a prey, like wolves do. I was wondering what was going on? I have never seen him like that, only about five minutes later I felt the tremble, the dog knew it was coming. During the shake he howled, he never howled like that before. Mind you, I live on 'Mont Tremblant', which means shaky mountain. It's so surrealistically scary..

    - 5.8-Magnitude Quake Strikes East Coast

    A 5.8-magnitude earthquake based in Virginia sent tremors from the nation’s capital to New York City and New England Tuesday afternoon, officials said. Buildings throughout major metropolitan centers in the northeast were evacuated after the quake, and tremors were felt as far north as Bath, Me., and as far south as Hampstead, N.C., with some limited reports of damage reported near the quake’s epicenter in Virginia, where a nearby nuclear power plant was taken offline. Amtrak trains were temporarily halted, and cellphone service was disrupted as calls flooded cellular systems.

    In Mineral, Va., a town about of about 500 people located four miles from the quake’s center, residents reported extensive damage to items inside homes. China shattered and pictures fell off walls. The Virginia epicenter was just miles from a decades-old nuclear power plant, the North Anna, operated by Dominion Power in Richmond, where two reactors were taken offline, although there were no reports of damage there.

    Some of her neighbors have cracks in their walls, she said, but she had not heard of any injuries and she said the town had not lost electricity.

    The tremors were even felt in Boston, where John D. Tuerck said he felt "a discernible swaying on the 18th floor" of his office tower. He added: "Not something one expects here, for sure."

    Virginia earthquake felt in Washington and New York

    A magnitude-5.8 earthquake has rattled the east coast of the United States.

    The quake centred on the state of Virginia but was felt in Washington, where the Pentagon and US Capitol were evacuated, as well as in New York.

    The National Cathedral was among buildings damaged, although there were no immediate reports of injuries.

    Federal officials said two nuclear reactors had been taken offline near the epicentre of the quake but that no damage had been reported.

    A total of 12 nuclear plants declared "unusual events" after the quake.

  • Captive apes share

    Through this particular research scientist revealed that Chimpanzees do help each other and share, but due to my personal experiences I do know that sometimes dogs and cats help each other to cope with difficulties as well. In my adult life, I had two dogs and two cats on different time lapses, and I particularly observed that one of my dogs (Max; a mixed shepherd) actually shared with my friend's dog (Bijou, a cute tiny Shitsu) his own bone. It happened often that as soon as my friend walked into the door with his dog, my mutt run to get him his own bone and threw it at Bijou to share. Bijou was a finicky dog he never cared for it, nevertheless Max hosted Bijou with his bone that lay around the house for weeks waiting for Bijou to have a taste at it! ;)

    Captive chimps choose to help their neighbours

    By Steve Connor, Science Editor

    The willingness to help strangers and not expect anything in return is supposed to be a uniquely human characteristic but scientists have shown that chimps are also capable of altruism.

    A study of chimpanzees kept at a primate research centre in the United States has for the first time found that, under certain circumstances, captive apes will help other individuals without appearing to expect any benefit from their generosity.

    Previous studies on captive chimpanzees have seemingly failed to find any evidence of altruism in our closest living relative, although scientists observing chimp behaviour in the wild have documented instances where unrelated individuals will help others in an apparently unselfish manner.

  • London: UFO fleet seen!

    UFO caught in London by a casual tourist camera: Look up closely at the video link below, this cannot be a regular Aeronautical group-flight, (aka Formation Flying) because the flying objects are going left strait-forward and then suddenly a few of them are turning around as if they were birds, but they can't be bird because they are too faraway and off an eye-scale view, they would have been unseen from where the video is shot!

    Over the last couple days, several videos have emerged showing several white gowing orbs flying over london.

    This is one of the newer ones that was posted by a tourist that was filming the Tower Bridge as several orbs made a fly by.

    The original HDV tape of this video has been given to me right out of the camera and has not been tampered with. I will allow this tape to be analysed by a professional to authenticate it as untampered evidence.

    The woman who filmed the video is willing to take a lie detector test. Her husband will also testify to what they witnessed.

    Something odd just happened. I'm not actually sure what it is.

    While browsing UFO related news, I stumbled upon a recently uploaded UFO video that was shot in London. That's not the odd part (believe it or not). But while doing a bit more research on this alleged UFO video, I learned that there are also two other videos of the same UFOs over London on that same day, shot by different people.
    Yet, that's also not the odd part of the story.

    Stephen Hawking on The Grand Design

    How can we understand the world in which we find ourselves? Over twenty years ago I wrote A Brief History of Time, to try to explain where the universe came from, and where it is going. But that book left some important questions unanswered. Why is there a universe--why is there something rather than nothing? Why do we exist? Why are the laws of nature what they are? Did the universe need a designer and creator?

  • Finding Atlantis: Have we found it?

    History on lost ancient worlds have been found and dug up for centuries! Archaeologists are still wondering about Atlantis. Recently it has been said that it’s more or less where Plato said it was, though sites from Florida to the Andes to Africa have been touted over the years. In Spain, satellite “X-Rays” showed buried circular structures similar to ancient descriptions of Atlantis. Drilling found wood four millennia old.

    atlantis

    The site is 100-km from the sea, which says something about the power of tsunamis, as if we needed to me reminded after the past few days with the disastrous devastation in Japan. It's difficult to envision tsunamis pounding Europe, however we do know that the one that hit Lisbon in 1755 was 10-storeys high.

    Lost city of Atlantis, swamped by tsunami, may be found

    By Zach Howard / Reuters – Sat, 12 Mar, 2011 11:36 AM EST

    NORTHAMPTON, Mass (Reuters) - A U.S.-led research team may have finally located the lost city of Atlantis, the legendary metropolis believed swamped by a tsunami thousands of years ago in mud flats in southern Spain.

    "This is the power of tsunamis," head researcher Richard Freund told Reuters.

    "It is just so hard to understand that it can wipe out 60 miles inland, and that's pretty much what we're talking about," said Freund, a University of Hartford, Connecticut, professor who lead an international team searching for the true site of Atlantis.

  • Exploring for survival in space?


    Let humanoids live on elsewhere as they explore other worlds in space!

    Two of my smart friends discuss and debate; if we ought to find another planet to have earthlings survive if this planet fails to linger on into the future. Thoughts as such often happens when global disasters strikes, as as we have seen with the earthquakes and revolutionary uprising..

    globe_spaceship

    My personal thought is, not everyone can go everywhere, I don't expect that I will be invited outside my sphere because I wouldn't have the technology or the scientific expertise, but I trust that some of the people will 'IF' (maybe/perhaps) we earthlings totally destroy this planet! I'm generous enough to pay, to let others live on if they want to for their own sake - why are is Martin J Willett so selfish? He says he doesn't give a wink about it, we should stop colonising more space!

    It's true we try to colonize a lot of space around the world - due that our population increases a lot - estimated to be 6.91 billion and counting. Will we need to get a safer place since this world is into a potter? Our instinct to survive gives us ideas and power to explore for our needs, 10 countries with the largest population in world are China, India, USA, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Russia and Japan, if they all speak together no one will understand a word, just as the tower of BABYLON!

    Talking about pumping up more people on this planet to become greedy, as Willett claims? Maybe if finally we all realise that "LESS is BETTER" we ought to get BUSY preaching to the most populated countries on this planet, especially those that are poor and need our help such as India, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nigeria, ect...

  • Crop circles: True or Hoax?


    Are Crop circles real or just another hoax?

    A crop circle is a sizable pattern created by the flattening of a crop such as wheat, barley, rye, maize, or rapeseed. Twenty-six countries ended up reporting approximately ten-thousand crop circles, in the last third of the 20th century, and 90% of those were located in southern England.

    Crop Circle 2008

    Crop circles are also referred to as crop formations, because they are not always circular in shape. While the exact date crop circles began to appear is unknown, the documented cases have substantially increased from the 1970s to current times.

    Many of the formations appearing in that area are positioned near ancient monuments, such as Stonehenge. Nearly half of all circles found in the UK are located within a 15 km radius of Avebury.

    Crop Circles 2010 - Look Closer

    Whilst I am convinced that a high number of crop circle in the 2010 season were fake (ie made by plankers), there still remained a number of oustanding formations, whose origins were not so clear-cut. This video shows the best of the 2010 formations. Whatever their origin and meanings may be, we can at least enjoy their magnificent beauty and artistry.

    Little tips: To see the 3-D and the light effects of the crop circles pics, look at your computer monitor from a certain angle, so the other parts of the pics look dark, and the only shiny one is the crop circles. You'll be surprised with the images.
    BTW, the two songs I use here are from Nidji (Indonesian Band). The first one is "Shadows", and the second song is "Heaven". Hope you all like the vid.

    Cosmic dust busters aim to clear stellar views

    An image of the universe taken by the Planck telescope shows a central band that is the plane of our galaxy, The Milky Way. A large portion of the image is dominated by the emission from the Milky Way's gas and dust, which appears purple.

    An image of the universe taken by the Planck telescope shows a central band that is the plane of our galaxy, The Milky Way. A large portion of the image is dominated by the emission from the Milky Way's gas and dust, which appears purple.

    Cosmic dust is fogging up attempts to study light left over from the Big Bang, and Canadian scientists aim to clear up the problem.

    The microscopic dust permeates the universe, producing confusing signals in data collected by the Planck space telescope, which is designed to study distant light originating from the beginning of the universe 13 billion years ago.

    The dust — mainly sand and soot particles, each about the size of a bacterium — makes up about one per cent of the mass in space, not very much compared with the mass of hydrogen and helium, said University of Toronto astronomer Peter Martin.

    "But it does a lot of damage," he added in an interview that airs on Quirks & Quarks Saturday. "It blocks a lot of starlight [and] keeps us from seeing the interiors of gas clouds that are forming stars."

    It also interferes with efforts to study "microwave background radiation," the oldest light in the universe.

    "Our cosmologist friends would call it 'noise'," Martin said. "It's not blocking [the radiation]. It's adding to the signal and therefore confusing what might otherwise be pure cosmological cosmic microwave background radiation."

    Martin and his colleagues are trying to figure out what microwave signal the dust produces as it glows so that signal can be subtracted out of the overall data, leaving behind the pure microwave background radiation.
