Crop Circles -2009 Update- Numbers 7, 8 & 9

[Formation Nº 7 @ East Kennett Longbarrow - nr Avebury, Wiltshire - reported May 3, 2009]
A four fold scalloped design with a nested Celtic Cross bisected by an inner ring.
This formation was discovered from the air around 10.45am Sunday May 3. The glyph can not be seen from the surrounding landscape. Overall diameter of this event is approximately 180 feet. Due to severe time constraints no critical examination of the laid plants was carried out. It did however appear that at least a few people had visited the circle during the early morning of day one, resulting in random damage to plants all over the formation.



[Formation Nº 8 @ Clatford - nr Manton, Wiltshire - reported May 4, 2009]
This Pictogram was discovered from the air in the early morning of May 4 2009. It is not viewable from any position in the local landscape. During the night of the creation of the glyph there was moderate rainfall in the local area.
The Glyph measures approximately 800 feet in length and around 250 feet wide. The crop is around 5 feel high. Further, the formation stretches over the crest of the hill at the top of the field, making any direct full length sight line out of the question.
More or less all the laid rape-seed plants in the formation were noted as broken and / or severely damaged at the base of the stems. Also much severe bruising was well evident on the laid plants. Some of this damage to the plants can be seen in the ground shots on this page. Most notably this damage shows as dark strips that run down the centres of the narrow avenues in the formation.
All damage to this formation looked systematic and intentional, and did not convey the appearance of standard regular hoaxing activity.
According to a very qualified and certificated tracker that was present during the inspection "the visible damage to the plants must have occurred between 5 and 6 hours prior to our inspection". This damage therefore must have occurred between 6am and 7am on May 4.
A small key-ring torch and a sweet wrapper were found "placed" in the circle during our late morning inspection of the site, Neither the paper wrapper nor the torch had been exposed to the night rain or early dawn dew, therefore it is very probable that they were inserted later in the morning. This could be considered at best extremely curious!

Army developing synthetic telepathy technology

http://thecrit.com/2008/10/17/army-developing-synthetic-telepathy-technology/#more-386

Vocal cords were overrated anyway. A new Army grant aims to create email or voice mail and send it by thought alone. No need to type an e-mail, dial a phone or even speak a word.
Known as synthetic telepathy, the technology is based on reading electrical activity in the brain using an electroencephalograph, or EEG. Similar technology is being marketed as a way to control video games by thought.
“I think that this will eventually become just another way of communicating,” said Mike D’Zmura, from the University of California, Irvine and the lead scientist on the project.
“It will take a lot of research, and a lot of time, but there are also a lot of commercial applications, not just military applications,” he said.
The idea of communicating by thought alone is not a new one. In the 1960s, a researcher strapped an EEG to his head and, with some training, could stop and start his brain’s alpha waves to compose Morse code messages.

Tesseract (four-dimensional analog of the cube)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesseract
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/8-cell-simple.gifhttp://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/55/Tesseract.gif
[3D projections of an 8-cell performing, on the left, a simple rotation about a plane which bisects the figure from front-left to back-right and top to bottom; and on the right, a double rotation about two orthogonal planes.]

In geometry, the
tesseract, also called an 8-cell or regular octachoron, is the four-dimensional analog of the cube. The tesseract is to the cube as the cube is to the square. Just as the surface of the cube consists of 6 square faces, the hypersurface of the tesseract consists of 8 cubical cells. The tesseract is one of the six convex regular 4-polytopes.

A generalization of the cube to dimensions greater than three is called a ''Hypercube'', “n-cube” or “measure polytope”. The tesseract is the four-dimensional hypercube, or 4-cube.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word tesseract was coined and first used in 1888 by Charles Howard Clinton in his book A New Era of Thought, from the Greek ''τέσσερεις ακτίνες'' (“four rays”), referring to the four lines from each vertex to other vertices. Some people have called the same figure a “tetracube”, and also simply a "hypercube" (although a hypercube can be of any dimension).

Mission Impossible: The Code Even the CIA Can't Crack

http://www.wired.com/science/discoveries/magazine/17-05/ff_kryptos?currentPage=all
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_JSpbgoKp8LA/SfBMgVi-8eI/AAAAAAAAEH0/62thxulT8T4/s400/4_Kryptos-Copper.jpg
The most celebrated inscription at the Central Intelligence Agency's headquarters in Langley, Virginia, used to be the biblical phrase chiseled into marble in the main lobby: "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." But in recent years, another text has been the subject of intense scrutiny inside the Company and out: 865 characters of seeming gibberish, punched out of half-inch-thick copper in a courtyard.
It's part of a sculpture called Kryptos, created by DC artist James Sanborn. He got the commission in 1988, when the CIA was constructing a new building behind its original headquarters. The agency wanted an outdoor installation for the area between the two buildings, so a solicitation went out for a piece of public art that the general public would never see. Sanborn named his proposal after the Greek word for hidden. The work is a meditation on the nature of secrecy and the elusiveness of truth, its message written entirely in code.
Almost 20 years after its dedication, the text has yet to be fully deciphered. A bleary-eyed global community of self-styled cryptanalysts—along with some of the agency's own staffers—has seen three of its four sections solved, revealing evocative prose that only makes the puzzle more confusing. Still uncracked are the 97 characters of the fourth part (known as K4 in Kryptos-speak). And the longer the deadlock continues, the crazier people get.
[James Sanborn buried his sculpture's message so deeply that a CIA staffer took seven years to solve just the first three sections. Here's what they know...]

200,000 Year Old Statue Found On Moon

http://thecrit.com/2009/05/05/200000-year-old-statue-found-on-moon/
ReliefSumer
WASHINGTON, DC - A noted scientist has just produced proof that the lunar surface was inhabited by intelligent life: a 10-inch angel sculpture embedded in a moon rock.
Geologist Dr. Morris Charles revealed last week that NASA lab workers chipped the angel from one of the rocks brought to Earth by Apollo 11 astronauts 40 years ago, in 1969. Dr. Charles was a NASA scientist himself for 23 years but left the agency in 1987. He still maintains close ties to many of his former colleagues.
“The implications of this figurine are absolutely mind-boggling,” Dr. Charles told reporters. “It means that at one time the moon had an atmosphere conducive to life. And what’s more, it was once home to a sophisticated race of people with a highly refined sense of beauty.”
The angel - a humanoid female with wing-like appendages on her back and long flowing hair - is made of an iron compound found exclusively in the highlands of the moon.

Schwarzenegger open to studying marijuana tax idea

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2009/05/schwarzenegger-open-to-studying-marijuana-tax-idea.html

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says California should study other nations’ experiences in legalizing and taxing marijuana, although he is not supporting the idea.
He says it’s time to debate proposals such as a bill introduced in the Legislature earlier this year that would treat marijuana like alcohol. Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, a San Francisco Democrat, says taxing marijuana at $50 per ounce would bring more than $1 billion a year to the state.
Schwarzenegger said during a Tuesday news conference that “it’s time for debate” on the idea. But he warned against making harmful decisions just for the sake of raising money.
He said some other nations have had negative experiences.[Which nations? Look at Portugal's 'experience'] Ammiano’s bill is on hold in the Legislature. He delayed seeking approval until next year.

U.S. Says Bank of America Needs $33.9 Billion Cushion

The government has told Bank Of America it needs $33.9 billion in capital to withstand any worsening of the economic downturn, according to an executive at the bank.
If the bank is unable to raise the capital cushion by selling assets or stock, it would have to rely on the government, which has provided $45 billion in capital through the Troubled Asset Relief Program.
It could satisfy regulators’ demands simply by converting non-voting preferred shares it gave the government in return for the capital, into common stock.
But that would make the government one of the bank’s largest shareholders.

Old Japanese maps on Google Earth unveil secrets

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/products/services/2009-05-04-google-maps_N.htm

TOKYO — When Google Earth added historical maps of Japan to its online collection last year, the search giant didn't expect a backlash. The finely detailed woodblock prints have been around for centuries, they were already posted on another website, and a historical map of Tokyo put up in 2006 hadn't caused any problems.
But Google failed to judge how its offering would be received, as it has often done in Japan. The company is now facing inquiries from the Justice Ministry and angry accusations of prejudice because its maps detailed the locations of former low-caste communities.
The maps date back to the country's feudal era, when shoguns ruled and a strict caste system was in place. At the bottom of the hierarchy were a class called the "burakumin," ethnically identical to other Japanese but forced to live in isolation because they did jobs associated with death, such as working with leather, butchering animals and digging graves.
Castes have long since been abolished, and the old buraku villages have largely faded away or been swallowed by Japan's sprawling metropolises. Today, rights groups say the descendants of burakumin make up about 3 million of the country's 127 million people.
But they still face prejudice, based almost entirely on where they live or their ancestors lived. Moving is little help, because employers or parents of potential spouses can hire agencies to check for buraku ancestry through Japan's elaborate family records, which can span back over a hundred years.

http://www.jerrypippin.com/Steven%20Greer%205.jpg

[A continuación, la entrevista en su totalidad según aparece en elperiodico.com]

--¿Cuándo se interesó por los extraterrestres?

--Mi tío era un alto cargo en Grumman, la compañía que construyó el módulo lunar, la máquina que se posó sobre la Luna con Neil Armstrong dentro. Así que desde los 8 años sé que no estamos solos. Porque hay que recordar que, cuando aterrizamos en la Luna, no estábamos solos.
--¿En qué basa su afirmación?
--Conozco a miembros de antiguos gobiernos que han visto material filmado con vehículos extraterrestres que estaban en el cráter, alrededor del módulo lunar de mi tío.
--...
--En 1993, ante las evidencias de mucha gente que trabajaba para la CIA o el Pentágono y que nos contaba todo esto y más, decidí sacrificar mi carrera como médico traumatólogo y trabajar para que toda la información sobre el tema saliera a la luz.
--Si existen los extraterrestres, ¿por qué no se han dejado ver?
--¿Conoce a Larry King, el presentador de la CNN?
--Sé quién es.
--Pues él me preguntó lo mismo, y yo le dije que nuestros líderes mundiales no controlan a las personas que se ocupan del tema. Se trata de un complejo militar e industrial sobre el que dudo que los líderes españoles sepan gran cosa.
--Insisto: ¿por qué no se han dejado ver los extraterrestres?
--La pregunta se basa en una premisa falsa. Ya lo han hecho. Todas las principales ciudades del mundo han registrado al menos un avistamiento en los últimos 50 años. Tengo un archivo que traeré a Catalunya[...al Congreso Europeo de Exopolítica 2009, en Barcelona; 25-26 de julio]. Claro que también podría preguntar: "¿Y por qué no aterrizan en la Casa Blanca durante la toma de posesión de Obama?".
--Buena pregunta.
--Porque eso precipitaría un gran pánico. Amigo, son más inteligentes de lo que usted cree.
--¿De dónde vienen?
--Sabemos que son interestelares, de fuera de nuestro sistema solar. No obstante, tienen instalaciones en él. Algunos parecen provenir del sector de Orión, eso seguro.
--¿Qué pretenden?
--Creo, y conmigo más de 500 testigos que han trabajado para la Administración americana, que hay civilizaciones extraterrestres que están queriendo tomar contacto con nosotros de forma pacífica, pero aún no ha habido nadie que haya contestado. Los extraterrestres nos llaman, pero nadie contesta. Es como si el teléfono hubiera estado sonando durante 60 años y no hubiera habido nadie capaz de descolgarlo.
--¿Cómo son?
--Las personas con las que he hablado, que han hecho autopsias a algunos de estos cuerpos, dicen que varían de estatura: entre 50 centímetros y 3 metros. Hay una especie que mide alrededor de un metro de altura, sin pelo, con bocas pequeñas. Hay un capitán de barco que, después de disparar contra una de esas naves y que ésta se estrellara, sacó varios de estos cuerpos del océano Atlántico Sur.
--...
--Todos los extraterrestres tienden a ser biomorfos; todos tienen una cabeza, dos piernas. Pero dentro de estos parámetros existen diferencias en cuanto a la altura, el tono de piel, etcétera. El universo es un ser vivo. El científico Rupert Sheldrake explica que existen ciertos patrones de creación que tienden a repetirse universalmente.
--¿Los considera personas?
--Sí, personas como usted y yo, solo que de otros sistemas planetarios. Sospecho que funcionan igual socialmente, aunque quizá su evolución espiritual esté varios miles de años más desarrollada.
--¿Se ha preguntado cómo cambiaría nuestra vida si se demostrase que existen los extraterrestres?
--Un científico de Jet Propulsion Laboratories me dijo que no dieron a conocer las imágenes obtenidas sobre la superficie de Marte en las que aparecían estructuras porque eso colapsaría las creencias ortodoxas de nuestro planeta. Compartimos un 98% del material genético con el chimpancé, pero ahí existe una brecha. Quizá esa brecha en la evolución del homo sapiens tiene que ver con una antigua conexión con alguna de estas civilizaciones.
--¿Cómo cambiaría nuestra vida?
--Pregúnteselo a las 200 o 300 corporaciones que controlan la energía del mundo. Los científicos que colaboran conmigo han llegado a la conclusión de que los ovnis no usan ni gasolina ni energía nuclear, exactamente de lo que hablaba Tesla cuando dijo que el universo está rebosante de energía electromagnética. Al complejo militar-industrial-dólar-petrolero no le hace ninguna gracia que alguien salga con una maravillosa fuente de energía que dejará obsoleto el petróleo y el gas del mundo.

Japanese scientist claims breakthrough with organ grown in sheep

Huddled at the back of her shed, bleating under a magnificent winter coat and tearing cheerfully at a bale of hay, she is possibly the answer to Japan’s chronic national shortage of organ donors: a sheep with a revolutionary secret.
Guided by one of the animal’s lab-coated creators, the visitor’s hand is led to the creature’s underbelly and towards a spot in the middle under eight inches of greasy wool. Lurking there is a spare pancreas.
If the science that put it there can be pushed further forward, Japan may be spared an ethical and practical crisis that has split medical and political opinion.
As the sheep-based chimera organ technology stands at the moment, says the man who is pioneering it, the only viable destination for the pancreas underneath his sheep would be a diabetic chimpanzee.
The organ growing on the sheep was generated from monkey stem cells but the man behind the science, Yutaka Hanazono, believes that the technology could be developed eventually to make sheep into walking organ banks for human livers, hearts, pancreases and skin.
It could happen within a decade, he guesses, perhaps two.

A success rate of one in 1,000 shows stop and search doesn't work

·This 'important tool' against terrorism treats black people as suspects.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2009/may/06/nicola-rollock-stop-and-search
http://blog.artofthestate.co.uk/_photos/38015480e3a8adca31b045a3f06dd4acc240524b8964f5aea4297c41.jpg
The use of police stop-and-search powers under the Terrorism Act 2000 has risen dramatically since summer 2007, with black and Asian people disproportionately targeted in the "aftermath of the failed London bombing in the Haymarket" (Use of police stop-and-search powers under terror law surges).
As you report, new Ministry of Justice figures show that from 2007-08 "the number of black people stopped under these powers rose by 322%, compared with an increase of 277% for Asian and 185% for white people". But an unreported aspect of the figures was the increase in the proportion of these searches being carried out by the Metropolitan Police - with little apparent effect.
The Met were responsible for 87% of all black people searched under this law in 2008, an increase of 303% from the previous year. Only eight of the 8,222 searched were subsequently arrested for activities related to terrorism. Yet in your article Home Office minister Vernon Coaker described stop and search as an "important tool" aimed at "disrupting crime and responding to intelligence and levels of risk". Even if we ignore the fact that not all arrests lead to conviction, this meant that the Met had grounds to arrest only one in every 1,028 black people searched. It is difficult to establish how such rates of success make it an "important tool".

La Eurocámara, dividida sobre la desconexión de piratas de la red

·El Parlamento de Estrasburgo vota hoy una norma para atajar las descargas ilegales.
·El director de Google en España duda de las sanciones y rechaza el canon.

http://www.elperiodico.com/default.asp?idpublicacio_PK=46&idioma=CAS&idnoticia_PK=609814&idseccio_PK=1012
p2p-spain por tuexperto.
El Parlamento Europeo vota hoy la nueva legislación comunitaria del mercado de las telecomunicaciones, un paquete normativo amplio y con un aspecto muy polémico, sobre el que los eurodiputados están divididos: la desconexión de internet a los internautas que se descarguen archivos protegidos por los derechos de autor. Varios países --España, entre ellos-- llevan tiempo discutiendo un enfoque para intentar atajar estos intercambios de música y películas, y Francia es quien más avanzado lo tiene. Su presidente, Nicolas Sarkozy, aboga por un sistema por el que, tras tres avisos, se pueda cortar la conexión del usuario, sin que para ello --y aquí está la división-- sea necesaria ninguna resolución judicial previa. La norma comunitaria a votación parece rechazar tal posibilidad, pero varios eurodiputados la calificaron ayer de "ambigua".
El texto, de compromiso y alcanzado tras una difícil negociación por el rechazo del Reino Unido, Alemania y la propia Francia, dice así: "No se impondrá restricción alguna a los derechos y libertades fundamentales de los usuarios finales sin una resolución previa de las autoridades judiciales". Excepto, continúa, "cuando la seguridad pública se vea amenazada, en cuyo caso la resolución puede ser posterior".
Hay interpretaciones divergentes[!!!] sobre esta futura directiva. Mientras la comisaria europea de Sociedad de la Información, Viviane Reding, aseguraba ayer que el documento reconoce que el acceso a la red forma parte de los derechos fundamentales y que los internautas tendrán derecho a un "proceso judicial justo", el eurodiputado Daniel Cohn-Bendit, de Los Verdes, sostuvo que la redacción era "ambigua", lo que provocará que sea el Tribunal de Justicia de la UE quien determine si leyes como la francesa son válidas bajo la nueva normativa comunitaria.

CONVERSACIONES ESPAÑOLAS
En España no hay, por el momento, ningún proyecto legislativo en este sentido, ni nada remotamente similar. Sin embargo, después de que el Gobierno delegara en ellos, los teleoperadores y la industria cultural llevan casi un año negociando un acuerdo para tratar de parar el hasta ahora imparable fenómeno de las descargas. El principal escollo se sitúa, precisamente, en la desconexión a la red, rechazada por los primeros y defendida por la segunda.
El director general de Google en España, Javier Rodríguez Zapatero[?], se situó ayer en Madrid más cerca de los proveedores de internet, al decir que no estaba "convencido al cien por cien" de que el corte de acceso sea la solución más adecuada para quienes intercambian archivos protegidos. Zapatero también se refirió al muy discutido canon digital. "No es lo más democrático que hay en el mundo", opinó.

Investigan a Apple y Google por monopolio

·Ambas empresas comparten algunos miembros de sus consejos de administración.

http://skeptisys.files.wordpress.com/2007/11/bite_of_apple.jpghttp://mastermarketing.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/google.jpg
San Francisco. (EFE).- La Comisión Federal de Comercio de EE.UU. está investigando a las firmas tecnológicas Apple y Google por posible violación de la legislación antimonopolio debido a que comparten algunos miembros de sus consejos de administración.
Según recoge la prensa estadounidense, la Comisión Federal de Comercio ya ha notificado la apertura de esta investigación a las dos empresas, que compiten en algunos mercados como el de la telefonía móvil o los sistemas operativos.
Eric Schmidt, consejero delegado de Google, y Arthur Levinson, ex consejero delegado del grupo farmacéutico Genentech, tienen un puesto tanto en el consejo de administración del buscador como en el de Apple.
Las leyes estadounidenses de defensa de la competencia prohíben que una persona se siente en los consejos de administración de dos empresas rivales si ello supone una reducción de la libre competencia entre ambas.
En el sector es conocido que Eric Schmidt abandona las reuniones del consejo de administración de Apple cuando se discute sobre el teléfono móvil iPhone. Google compite en este área con Apple ya que ha desarrollado un sistema operativo para móvil -Android- utilizado por competidores del iPhone.
Sin embargo, Google y Apple compiten también en otras áreas de negocio como navegadores de internet -Safari, de Apple, y Chrome, de Google-, servicios para compartir fotos -iPhoto y Picasa- vídeo online -iTunes y YouTube- o servicios de correo electrónico.
