San Francisco: Next Big Quake Could Be Imminent
As San Francisco commemorates the 25th anniversary of its last serious quake this week, a new report has warned that the city could once again be sitting on top of a ticking seismic time bomb.
Scientists tracking the movements of four highly stressed seismic faults that form part of the Bay Area’s densely populated San Andreas system have discovered worrying surface mobility which suggests that they could burst forth in a major quake at any time.
The "War On Consciousness:" Ethical Measures or Suppression of Free Speech?
There can be no doubt that the variety of information available on the internet is incredibly wide and varied, and limited only by the imagination of its users. As with all aspects of life, this diversity of subject matter encompasses all extremes, from the lightest and most positive to the darkest and most vile of pursuits, and all shades of grey in between.
Three Huge Triangle Stun West Virginia Coal Miners
The ten miners who report seeing three enormous black triangles pass overhead a low altitude may well be describing a genuine unknown. There have been a very large number of black triangles sighted recently. They are always silent, often at low altitude, and moving slowly. These three objects are no exception to this rule.
The UFO phenomenon has been lingering in the background for over sixty years. What would happen if it suddenly came into focus? There is really a great deal of activity lately, and mankind is approaching the environmental crisis the visitors have been warning about virtually from the beginning of the modern emergence of the phenomenon.
A Story too Bizarre to Ignore: Pilots Surprised by Flying Man
Your Out There editor can't find any reason to believe or debunk this story, so here it is:pilots landing an Airbus A320 at Manchester in the UK were surprised to see a man fly past at an altitude of 3,800 feet as they passed over Macclesfield. He wasn't picked up on radar, and neither pilot saw a canopy above him. If there was no canopy, then he wasn't in a powered hang-glider or ultralight. There are no mountains nearby from which a wingsuiter could have taken off and reached an altitude of nearly 4,000 feet.
Weekender: The Case For "Safe" Nuclear Energy - Is it Really Possible?
Research into alternative energy resources could be on the verge of a major breakthrough that could change the world forever.
The military contracts company, Lockheed Martin, has been working on a safer version of nuclear energy known as "compact fusion." The research is being conducted by Lockheed Martin's Advanced Development Programs (ADP), nicknamed Skunk Works by the company due to its focus on advanced or secret projects.
If the technology proves to be a viable success, then there is the potential to create portable compact fusion energy sources small enough to provide limitless power for aeroplanes, spacecraft and naval vessels. Project leader Dr Thomas McGuire said if the project vision is realised, the “true atomic age can start."
Uri Geller, the CIA and Extreme Strangeness
Uri Geller carried out a number of missions for the CIA and other intelligence services. Here, he goes into detail about some of these very unusual activities, including the use of telepathy on a Russian official at a very crucial moment in some sensitive negotiations. He goes more deeply into these stories than he has before. Whitley and Uri discuss, among other things, the study that the CIA's Dr. Kit Greene did of him, and where it led.
He also talks to Anne Strieber about tumors and visualization, which then leads to the classic "Uri" experience that Anne describes in her most recent diary.
Is Ebola Now At Large In The United States?
The search for 132 potential Ebola victims has now begun in the United States after an infected nurse flew from Ohio to Dallas on a Frontier Airlines flight.
The nurse, Amber Vincent, had been treating Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, who has since died in a Dallas hospital. She was unaware that she had contracted the disease and had been visiting her mother since Friday to prepare for her wedding.
My Uri Geller Experience
When we interviewed Uri Geller, it turned out that he had a gift for me. When I told him I had cancer, he gave me a suggestion: he said I should meditate every morning and visualize my brain healing. So, I started. How to go about this? I don’t know what the cancer might look like. I thought that I would visualize a healthy brain.
But that isn’t what came into my mind. Far from it, for some reason, a missing compact which I hadn’t seen in years was what floated into my mind’s eye. I figured, well, I tried for something big—healing—but I got something kind of silly instead.
Uri Geller and Whitley Strieber share many colleagues and friends and have deep knowledge of one another's experiences. In this mind-bender of an interview, Whitley asks Uri questions that others simply don't have the knowledge to ask.
As Whitley shares friendship with the scientists who studied Uri at the Stanford Research Institute, he doesn't come to the interview with the usual basic questions. He knows that Uri is no clever stage magician, but, in fact, possesses some of the strangest powers ever observed in a human being.
Personal Cosmic Ray Detectors Soon Available For Smartphones
Soon, the growing capability of your smartphone could be harnessed to detect cosmic rays in much the same way as high-end, multimillion-dollar observatories.
With a simple app addition, Android phones, and likely other smartphone brands in the not-too-distant future, can be turned into detectors to capture the light particles created when cosmic rays crash into Earth’s atmosphere.
“The apps basically transform the phone into a high-energy particle detector,” explains Justin Vandenbroucke, a University of Wisconsin-Madison assistant professor of physics and a researcher at the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC). “It uses the same principles as these very large experiments.”
