Less Ice In Arctic Ocean 6000-7000 Years Ago ScienceDaily (Oct. 20, 2008) Recent mapping of a number of raised beach ridges on the north coast of Greenland suggests that the ice cover in the Arctic Ocean was greatly reduced some 6000-7000 years ago. The Arctic Ocean may have been periodically ice free. ”The climate in the northern regions has never been milder since the last Ice Age than it was about 6000-7000 years ago. We still don’t know whether the Arctic Ocean was completely ice

Jacking into the Brain–Is the Brain the Ultimate Computer Interface? How far can science advance brain-machine interface technology? Will we one day pipe the latest blog entry or NASCAR highlights directly into the human brain as if the organ were an outsize flash drive? By Gary Stix The cyberpunk science fiction that emerged in the 1980s routinely paraded “neural implants” for hooking a computing device directly to the brain: “I had hundreds of megabytes stashed in my head,” proclaimed the protagonist of “Johnny Mnemonic,” a

Nearly 1,000ft below the Chihuahua Desert in Mexico, this cave was discovered by two brothers drilling in the Naica lead and silver mine. It is an eerie sight. Up to 170 giant, luminous obelisks – the biggest is 37.4ft long and the equivalent height of

Scientists create organic wires for use inside the human body By Rick C. Hodgin Friday, October 24, 2008 11:30 Baltimore (MD) – Research chemists at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) have developed a water-soluble, organic, self-assembling electronic wire suitable for use inside the human body. Derived from carbon materials, the lightweight, flexible wires can power pacemakers, reconnect damaged nerve tissues, while also interacting with real electronic device that could augment or stimulate organic function. But do not worry, for this is only step one of the

National Press Club UFO conference

National Press Club UFO conference .::. <<video>> <<editors note>> This video is almost a year old, but it’s worth the watch since alot of worldly governments are declassifying their UFO files.

Whether or not these crafts are “man-made”. I like to know what the government knows since the government is mostly

• October, 2008

October 20, 2008 Telegraph, London MIAMI: Colombia’s drug barons used to favour powerboats to export their illegal cargoes, leading law enforcers on high-speed chases as they swamped the US with narcotics. But in an attempt to evade American surveillance, they are diverting their smuggling trade beneath the waves. The US Coast Guard and military patrols have reported a dramatic increase in do-it-yourself “semi-submersible” vessels that evade radar and sonar, barely breaking the ocean surface as they slowly creep through the Pacific or the Caribbean.
