The Hour of Our Time - The Legacy of William Cooper

[William (Bill) Cooper was a former naval officer, decorated veteran, short wave radio broadcaster and world renound lecturer and author, he was shot and killed November 5th 2001 under suspicious circumstances. This is his story]

THE SECRET LAND

[In 1947 Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal sent a naval task force to Antarctic including Admiral Nimitz, Admiral Krusen and Admiral Byrd, called "Operation Highjump". It was touted to be an expedition to find "coal deposits" and other valuable resources, but in actuality they were trying to find the underground base of the nazis (aryans) in Neuschwabenlandt. The nazis had done a very detailed study of Antarctic and were alleged to have built an underground base there. In this regard however, the aryans have had an underground under the ice habitation in Antarctic for more than a million years. . .On the last of many "mapping" flights where all six planes went out, each on certain pre-ordained paths to film and "measure" with magnetometers, Admiral Byrd's plane returned THREE HOURS LATE. It was stated that he had "lost an engine" and had had to throw everything overboard except the films themselves and the results of magnetometer readings in order to maintain altitude long enough to return to Little America. This is most certainly the time when he met with representatives of the aryans and a contingent of nazis. The task force came steaming back with their data which then became classified "top secret". Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal retired and started to "talk". He was put in Bethesda Naval Hospital psychiatric ward where he was prevented from seeing or talking to anyone, including his wife! after a short while he was thrown out the window while trying to hang himself with a bedsheet. It was ruled a suicide, case closed. He was telling people about the underground aryan base]

Fear On Wall Street - 'The Experts'

[This is a bit difficult to follow...The bald 'expert' seems to loose it right in front of the cameras...Or maybe the realization of the whole Wall Street scam is hitting him hard...]

Men on road to extinction

The researcher in human sex chromosomes said the male Y chromosome was dying and could run out within the next five million years.
But Professor Graves said men may follow the path of a type of rodent which still manages to reproduce despite not having the vital genes that make up the Y chromosome.
She told medical students at the annual outreach public lecture at the Royal College of Surgeons (RCSI) in Ireland a second species of human beings could even be born in the future.
"You need a Y chromosome to be male," said Prof Graves.
"Three hundred million years ago the Y chromosome had about 1,400 genes on it, and now it's only got 45 left, so at this rate we're going to run out of genes on the Y chromosome in about five million years.
"The Y chromosome is dying and the big question is what happens then."
The male Y chromosome has a gene (SRY) which switches on the development of testis and pumps out male hormones that determine maleness.
In her lecture, entitled The Decline and Fall of the Y Chromosome and the Future of Men, Prof Graves discussed the disappearance of the Y chromosome and the implications for humans.
She said it was not known what would happen once the Y chromosome disappeared.
"Humans can't become parthenogenetic [asexually reproduce], like some lizards, because several vital genes must come from the male," she continued.
"But the good news is that certain rodent species - the mole voles of Eastern Europe and the country rats of Japan - have no Y chromosome and no SRY gene.
"Yet there are still plenty of healthy male mole voles and country rats running around. Some other gene must have taken over the job and we'd like to know what that gene is."

World's first battery fuelled by air

·The world's first battery fuelled by air - with 10 times the storage capacity of conventional cells - has been unveiled

Scientists say the revolutionary 'STAIR' (St Andrews Air) battery could now pave the way for a new generation of electric cars, laptops and mobile phones.
The cells are charged in a traditional way but as power is used or 'discharged' an open mesh section of battery draws in oxygen from the surrounding air.
This oxygen reacts with a porous carbon component inside the battery, which creates more energy and helps to continually 'charge' the cell as it is being discharged.
By replacing the traditional chemical constituent, lithium cobalt oxide, with porous carbon and oxygen drawn from the air, the cell is much lighter than current batteries.
And as the cycle of air helps re-charge the battery as it is used, it has a greater storage capacity than other similar-sized cells and can emit power up to 10 times longer.
Professor Peter Bruce of the Chemistry Department at the University of St Andrews, said: "The benefits are it's much smaller and lighter so better for transporting small applications.
"The size is also crucial for anyone trying to develop electric cars as they want to keep weight down as much as possible.
"Storage is also important in the development of green power. You need to store electricity because wind and solar power is intermittent."

Light years ahead

Active House: A zero carbon emission house
Solar panels warm underfloor heating. Fifty square metres of solar cells generate electricity. Computer-controlled windows automatically regulate internal temperature.
This is the last place you would expect to find the solar-powered home of the future. Lystrup, a suburb of Denmark's second city, Aarhus, is grey from street to sky. The spring sun, hidden behind a bank of clouds that doesn't break once on my week- long visit, barely seems strong enough to run a pocket calculator, let alone meet the energy needs of a family of four. But it is here that a dream of zero-carbon living is being realised.
The world's first Active House stands at the crest of an estate. Its south-facing roof is covered in solar panels and solar cells, which between them harness more than enough power to keep the occupants warm and the appliances running. In around 30 years' time, if designers have got their sums right, the excess electricity flowing from the house into Denmark's grid will have cancelled out the energy costs of building it, leaving a non-existent footprint on the earth's resources.
[...]
Rikke Lildholdt, project manager for the Active House, shows me round. "Many people have the idea that if it's ecological, it must be difficult; you have to grow your own vegetables or whatever," she says. "This is about living a comfortable life in a house that produces more energy than it uses."

Enric Duran en libertad provisional bajo fianza de 50.000 euros

http://www.elperiodico.com/default.asp?idpublicacio_PK=46&idioma=CAS&idnoticia_PK=614249&idseccio_PK=1021&h=
http://bolsaprofesionalinmobiliaria.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/enric-duran.jpg
La Audiencia de Barcelona ha acordado dejar en libertad provisional, bajo fianza de 50.000 euros, al activista antisistema Enric Duran --popularmente conocido como el Robin Hood de los bancos--, que presuntamente estafó 492.000 euros a 39 entidades para demostrar su desacuerdo con el actual sistema financiero mundial.
Según han informado fuentes judiciales, en su auto la Audiencia estima parcialmente el recurso presentado por la defensa de Duran contra su ingreso en prisión preventiva y le permite eludir la prisión con el pago de 50.000 euros de fianza, la obligación de comparecer semanalmente en el juzgado y la retención del pasaporte.

Sin riesgo de huida
La sección novena de la Audiencia ha considerado oportuno dejar libre al activista al valorar que ya no existe riesgo de huida, principal argumento que esgrimió el juzgado de instrucción para encarcelarlo.
No obstante, el tribunal cree que es posible que el imputado pueda intentar eludir la acción de la justicia, dado que [E. Duran] manifestó que no reconocía la legitimidad del sistema judicial para procesarlo, por lo que ha decidido imponerle una fianza para garantizar que acuda a su juicio.

Estafa y falsedad documental
Enric Duran está en prisión preventiva desde el pasado 19 de marzo, acusado de los delitos de estafa y falsedad documental, por haber engañado presuntamente a 39 bancos que le concedieron casi medio millón de euros en distintos créditos personales y a través de una empresa ficticia.
Con el dinero prestado por los bancos, el activista antisistema publicó el 17 de septiembre pasado la revista Crisis, en la que daba a conocer su estafa, y reapareció el 17 de marzo pasado para presentar su nueva publicación Podemos Vivir Sin Capitalismo, tras lo que fue detenido por los Mossos d'Esquadra.

Acusación particular
En el atestado policial presentado ante el juzgado, consta que son una veintena las entidades financieras supuestamente estafadas, pero solo cuatro de ellas han expresado su intención de ejercer la acusación particular en la causa contra el activista [...y las otras 34 entidades, qué? Tal vez les quede algo de vergüenza...pero que cosas digo! Seguro que no quieren perder aún más clientes, o que la gente se dé cuenta de lo ratas que son!], según fuentes judiciales.
En su declaración ante el juez instructor, el Robin Hood [Su nombre es Enric Duran, sr. periodista de 3 al cuarto...] de los bancos dijo que había destinado el dinero defraudado a editar esas dos publicaciones y a distintos movimientos sociales, sin especificar cuáles.
