SOME SCIENTISTS WANT US TO STOP SENDING MESSAGES OUT TO SPACE

And it makes sense as to why.. If no one knows earth is here, this pale blue dot, why tell them? Why announce ourselves to potentially hostile beings from elsewhere? Why give a big blast of "HELLO UNIVERSE" to creatures that may want to simply enslave us or take our resources..?

Don't reach out

This is the very real concern of some very real scientists.. The UK INDEPENDENT has the full story on the fear..

The basic gist: Leading scientists at SETI, that little place that has been searching for alien life for as long as I have been alive and then some, are proposing that we beam the signal we send out to the universe and direct it specifically at the potentially hospitable zones for life as Kepler has recently found.. In doing so, the hope would be that actual beings hear the message and either answer back, or I suppose travel here.. and destroy every living being on earth. Well, that is the fear at least..

The argument made by those who oppose: Evil alien intentions will be made easier by us, the dumb thumbs of the planet earth, letting them know all about us. It's the cosmic way, some may think ,of announcing on Facebook, "hey I'm going on vacation and I left my door open!"

Some leading scientists have pondered about this potential for a long time.. Steve Conner in the INDEPENDENT reminds us:
He is not alone in his concerns. Professor Stephen Hawking, the Cambridge cosmologist, warned in 2010 that humans should keep as silent as possible because alien civilisations may be attracted to Earth and have the technology to travel here and exploit its resources. “If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn’t turn out well for the Native Americans,” he said

The BBC report

The BBC's Phallab Ghosh writes this,
Researchers at the Seti institute have been listening for signals from outer space for more than 30 years using radio telescope facilities in the US. So far there has been no sign of ET.

The organisation's director, Dr Seth Shostak, told attendees to the AAAS meeting that it was now time to step up the search.

"Some of us at the institute are interested in 'active Seti', not just listening but broadcasting something to some nearby stars because maybe there is some chance that if you wake somebody up you'll get a response," he told BBC News.

The concerns are obvious, but sitting in his office at the institute in Mountain View, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, he expresses them with characteristic, impish glee.

Impish glee.. it's all impish glee until a fire storm of hell rains down on the planet earth by hostile beings from elsewhere--and they may be especially angry when they get here and I LOVE LUCY is simply a long memory of our television infancy..

It is an interesting concept.
One must first assume there's aliens among us, out there somewhere, who are poised and ready to either pounce on our faces or elevate us to a higher existence. I am sure like humans, good aliens and bad aliens abound.. But if we get unlucky and reach out to the wrong crowd first, our homes burn down and we're left to wonder why high paid scientists said 'hi' to begin with..

Of course all this worry could be for nothing.. even if an alien race got our message, they may be hardpressed to get here quickly.

Unless they are already here. . . like the Greys.

And we all know what they do..

Talk about losing your car in the parking lot: Sinkhole opens up at Lancaster PA shopping center!

A sinkhole formed in the parking lot at Tanger Outlets in East Lampeter Township, Lancaster County, Aug. 10, 2018. Several cars, including at least one with someone inside, were damaged.


As the day turned into night, the cars sunk further..






PENNLIVE HAS SOME MORE PHOTOS OF THE SIGHTSEERS AMAZED BY THE SINKHOLE..

Sinkholes have been prevalent around the eastern part of PA, including Harrisburg, Lancaster, and Allentown, over the past decade..

WHAT THE FROCK! ABUSIVE PENNSYLVANIA PRIESTS AND THE BISHOPS TO HID THEM NOW REVEALED!

Put this in the true horror category..

I am from PA. I know several people in this report.. I may even know several abuse victims.

This is the end.

The death of the great tax exempt church..

The blue-haired bakers who love the block parties are dying away...

The truth--with all its sordid details of abusive priests, sex rings, and pedophilia--all now out.

A long-awaited state grand jury report into sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses, including Pittsburgh and Greensburg, has finally been released. “Today, the most comprehensive report on child sexual abuse within the church ever produced in our country was released,” Attorney General Josh Shapiro said. “Pennsylvanians can finally learn the extent of sexual abuse in these dioceses. For the first time, we can all begin to understand the systematic cover up by church leaders that followed. The abuse scarred every diocese. The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs.”


The report begins with the followi…

It's over. Print dies: September VOGUE does not matter

It was once the biggest print magazine of the year..
They were the days..

NOW THIS, AS REPORTED BY Alexandra Steigrad:

Days before the issue hit newsstands, usually in early August, executives from Vogue, InStyle, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Glamour and W would brag about the thickness of their telephone book-sized glossies. They’d boast of the “thud” the issues made when dropped on a coffee table. The louder the thud, the more powerful the magazine.
Now that thud is more of a whimper.
“The September issue means nothing anymore,” said Sam Shahid, founder of branding, advertising and design agency Shahid & Company. “You used to hold that magazine in your hand. It takes you to a place — that’s what a magazine used to do. Now they are all doing the same thing. There’s no imagination there. It’s just pure product, it’s pleasing the advertiser.”
Shahid says a lack of funds at publishers, due to a decline in print circulation and ad revenue in the digital age, has led to a crazy scramble to attr…
