Just the Facts?: Jellyfish-like Extraterrestrials -- Vampire Attack in Texas -- Roswell-Alien Cover-up Claim
Scientist claims jellyfish-like aliens exist
Dr Maggie Alderin-Pocock envisages creatures that float through clouds of methane, scooping chemical nutrients into their gaping mouths.
The aliens keep themselves aloft by means of dangling onion-like buoyancy bags, and communicate with pulses of light.
Dr Alderin-Pocock, a leading scientist at European space company Astrium, said: “Our imaginations are naturally constrained by what we see around us, and the conventional wisdom has been that life needs water and is carbon-based.
“But some researchers are doing exciting work, playing with ideas such as silicon-based life forms.
“Silicon is just below carbon in the periodic table, has some chemical similarities, and is widely available in the universe.
“So perhaps we could imagine similar instructions to DNA but with silicon.
“Maybe life doesn’t have to resemble anything like DNA at all.”
Her aliens would probably die on Earth, finding the damp oxygenated atmosphere lethally corrosive. Equally, humans would not survive on Titan.
Based on the latest discoveries of star-orbiting planets, she also believes as many as four intelligent extraterrestrial civilisations could exist in our galaxy, the Milky Way. But they are so far away it is unlikely we will ever meet them.
“The Voyager 1 spacecraft, which is carrying a recording of greetings from Earth in different languages, has been travelling through the Solar System since the 1970s and has only just made it into deep space,” she said.
“To get to our nearest neighbouring star, Proxima Centauri, would take it 76,000 years.”
Dr Alderin-Pocock presents Do We Really Need the Moon on TV channel Eden today at 7pm.
Her alien picture and accompanying article form part of a free e-book commissioned to mark the launch of Eden’s Science Month. - telegraph

‘Bath salts’ suspected in nationwide naked crime wave
Addiction specialists suspect that so-called “bath salts” may be playing a part in an outbreak of crimes committed by naked people across the United States and even in Canada.
Mephedrone, the active ingredient in “bath salts,” is a synthetic stimulant that users say makes them feel energized and confident. It intensifies the pleasure associated with hearing music and is therefore popular in nightclubs, at concerts and at “raves.” At toxic levels, however, the drug reportedly causes intense confusion and sometimes violent rage, spikes in body temperature and hallucinations.
After a series of recent crimes in Arizona, police began to see a pattern.
“I wouldn’t approach naked people running around the streets of Phoenix,” Phoenix Police Sgt. Eric Wyckoff told Fox 10.
“Generally speaking, if you run into a naked man out here, we found there’s usually some kind of illicit narcotic on board,” he added.
Dr. Ravi Chandiramani, an addiction specialist at Sundance rehabilitation center in Scottsdale, said that he has seen bath salt addiction skyrocket this year.
“It’s different than anything else we typically encounter because it’s almost like having cocaine, ecstacy, LSD or acid or amphetamine in one substance,” Chandiramani explained.
“And I think why you’re seeing people do crazy things on the news is because it’s causing them to act in a psychotic fashion,” he observed. “So they are having hallucinations, agitation, they’re taking their clothes off from perspiring so much, they’re prone to violence.”
Here are just a few of the crimes in the last month involving naked people suspected of using bath salts:
- June 5: Broward County, Florida woman blocks intersection, exposing her vagina, breasts and buttocks.
- June 11: Naked Miami man tells 3-year-old girl, “Hi pretty girl, I want to stick it in you.”
- June 12: Naked woman from Munnsville, New York punches kids and strangles dog.
- June 14: Half-naked Georgia man threatens to eat police at golf driving range.
- June 15: Texas woman crashes car, strips and eats ice cream in Houston.
- June 16: Naked Illinois man surfs on car hood.
- June 17: Naked woman fights with hospital staff in Altoona, Pennsylvania.
- June 20: Miami man breaks into house, strips naked, throws furniture and bites man.
- June 20: Police in Phoenix, Arizona fish a naked man out of Tempe Town Lake where he had been illegally swimming for an hour.
- June 23: Naked woman in Utica, New York tries to eat a cop.
- June 26: Naked man in Calgary, Canada found smashing his head on a fence.
- June 29: Naked Scottsdale, Arizona carjacking suspect causes multiple accidents and then crawls on car roof and sings.
- July 1: Venice, California man dry humps the air while completely nude.
- July 4: Man wearing no pants crashes moving truck into Phoenix house. - rawstory
Vampire Attack in Corpus Christi?
Is a vampire on the loose in Corpus Christi?
Police say a 16 year old boy was walking down Shoreline Boulevard near Corpus Christi Bay Wednesday night, when he accidentally bumped into a man, who turned around and bit him in the neck.
"Apparently he left a bite mark and broke the skin and took some skin off," Senior Police Officer Julia Hernandez-Garcia told 1200 WOAI'S Michael Board.
The teenager was taken to the hospital by his mother and was not seriously hurt. The suspect, described as a Latino male in his early twenties, ran away after biting the boy's neck.
"This is a very unusual case," she said. "I've been here for 27 years and I've never heard of anything like this." - woai
Senior CIA Officer Claims Knowledge of Roswell-Alien Cover-up
On 23 June, 2012, in an interview for the popular American radio show, Coast to Coast AM, the CIA’s former liaison to the entertainment industry, Charles ‘Chase’Brandon made extraordinary claims about the so-called “Roswell incident,” in which the US military is widely believed to have retrieved extraterrestrial materials and bodies after a mysterious object crashed in the deserts of New Mexico.
"I also absolutely know as I sit here talking to you that there was a craft from beyond this world that crashed at Roswell, that the military picked up remains of not just the wreckage, but cadavers."
Most explosively, Brandon recounted an occasion when he saw direct proof of the alien nature of Roswell while conducting research at the CIA’s Historical Intelligence Collection (HIC) as part of his role as CIA Entertainment Liaison Officer (ELO). Brandon claimed he had the rare opportunity to look inside a box labelled “Roswell” containing “materials... papers... [and] other items” but stressed that he “cannot, will not, under any imaginable set of circumstances tell you what I saw in there specifically,” with the implication being that to reveal more specific details would be a breach of national security.

Scientist Finds Hidden Portals in Earth’s Magnetic Field
According to NASA, Jack Scudder—a researcher at the University of Iowa—has found "hidden portals on Earth's magnetic field [that] open and close dozens of times each day." Some of them are open for long periods of time.
Scudder says that these portals "create an uninterrupted path leading from our own planet to the sun's atmosphere 93 million miles away."
Called X-points or electron diffusion regions, they are located "a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth. The portals are created through a process of magnetic reconnection in which lines of magnetic force from both celestial bodies mingle and criss-cross through space. The criss-crossing creates these x-points.
The portals are "invisible, unstable and elusive," opening and closing without any warning. When they open, however, they are capable of transporting energetic particles at high speed from the Sun's atmosphere's to Earth's, causing geomagnetic storms.
There's a way to locate them and Scudder has found it. He uses data by NASA's THEMIS spacecraft and the ESA's Cluster probes, following crucial clues found in the data from NASA's Polar spacecraft, which studied Earth's magnetosphere in the late 1990s:
Using Polar data, we have found five simple combinations of magnetic field and energetic particle measurements that tell us when we've come across an X-point or an electron diffusion region. A single spacecraft, properly instrumented, can make these measurements.
NASA is getting ready such a spacecraft in their Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission. A whole squadron of them: four ships that will be deployed around Earth and "surround the portals to observe how they work." The spacecraft will launch in 2014. - gizmodo
