"In other news"

Events and people making news around the world today, March 17 2014:

People celebrate after voting at Lenin Square in Simferopol, March 16

Plane vanished in plain sight: As if things couldn't get weirder with Flight 370's vanishing act.. Read this: The missing Malaysia plane reportedly sent signals, a final 'ping,' seven hours later after the flight vanished..

Those who have listened to Coast to Coast AM since the 1990s (and lots of other UFO oriented sources) may know this name: Dr. Roger Leir. He was famous for saying he took alien implants out of a large number of patients who went to him.. He passed away this weekend while awaiting surgery relating to a 2010 accident...

An avalanche in Idaho buried state highway 21 under 60 feet of snow! There's no spring coming to melt that fast enough..

There's been a tremendous amount of conspiracy conjecture relating to Fukushima since the nightmare began March 2011.. but this article posted at the New York TIMES is hair-raising.. Apparently Japan's government is trying to stop reporting of facts, such as this: Radioactive cesium 137 in the surface water of the Pacific Ocean COULD BE 10,000 times as high as contamination from Chernobyl. Let that, and other facts from the article, sink in a bit..

I get a feeling that if alien life is going to be announced, it will be coming from religious leaders before the government. That way it would sink in better with people if they heard it from God-like men as opposed to devil-like whores.. And in that regard: The Vatican Observatory is co-hosting a conference in Arizona this week on the search for life beyond the solar system.. I always think back to the priest who said he'd love to baptize an alien.. Maybe the Vatican knows disclosure will lead to a surge in numbers. But what will the aliens donate in the weekly collection basket?



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
