Hacker Broke Into Pentagon System Searching for Aliens

leave a comment »

Per capita Great Britain lead(s) the world in personal computers and many innovations we take for granted have come from there, Sir Sinclair’s first GPS for yachts, etc. We live in interesting times. How can the US government be so vulnerable to a 56K modem? Then we should agree that the transmissions of electrons at that rate now results in freedom taken away from an individual for an alarming amount of time for curiosity over what Dr. Carl G. Jung called a “manifestation of the collective unconscious” UFOs, often seen by mentally unbalanced people for ages, and also perpetrated by other people and I dare say governments? If there was no serious “cracking” of codes and these systems were so ridiculously lax in security, I find it hard to believe the this “punishment fits the crime”. Maybe other heads should have rolled. American tax money at work, give them a break? We paid Paul Revere for his ride.

Newsvine – Bush blames Congress for not acting on gas prices

leave a comment »

His father signed the 1990 law that made it so, so why is he blaming the Congress? His father also signed the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act, 1990, which should be used and enforced in the investigation of their “…mutual senior or secret society based at Yale University” (Wikipedia) “Skull and Bones” “fraternity” at Yale University, which allegedly holds parts of the remains of the native North American (Mexico is part of that) chief Geronimo, apparently dug up and “treated” in the club by some of its forbears and apparently used in some ceremony or “rite of passage”. Interesting the broken US Cavalry swords, attributed to the Apache “wars” are in the entrance way to the main building of the Hoyt Farm historic site and county holding, once belonging to a judge, in Hauppauge on Long Island in New York state nearby where many of the court and civil proceedings are held. Methinks he protests too much. I wonder if there really is a brand on his buttock?

I recall the very close hearings that went before in the offshore lease areas in the Gulf of Mexico. There was a concerted effort to open them up but the State of Florida was concerned with pollution from oil affecting its Gulf beaches, wetlands and now I read water supply, i.e., desalination plant in Tampa. More recently I watched the Republican Congressman from where oil was first commercially drilled and used in Titusville, PA, last October on C-Span in Vermont, where there is a wind-farm on Federal Forest land, proposed to be expanded with wind generators taller than the Statue of Liberty I dug test units for. The Congressman had charts and reasons for why we should be drilling for natural gas offshore, primarily the east coast of the US I recall. There’s also the scientists who think that a methane eruption from under the sea could cause a terrible increase in global warming along with tsunami damage which could be another reason for a large scale survey for natural gas offshore. I wish the President had followed the gas initiative, most of the oil, by a squeak, comes from Canada I’ve read.

Leo DiCaprio Welcoming Another Twilight Zone?

leave a comment »

Now that LA had another p-wave, I thought I’d say, even if the stories bear resemblance to the written word by various authors, the dramatic importance of the short-story television play, if you will, interrupted, by “and now a word from our sponsors” (a very funny skit usually preceded the announcement from Alfred Hitchcock that arguably kept the viewer on that network viewing his “Presents”) was surely one of the best, and remain almost timeless, which, may have been his intent. A “poor theater” presentation with themes and stories that challenged people to think and react, despite a perhaps observed growing apathy. Scary enough they may have helped the ratings of more sedate shows at the time.

Shaker child returns to celebrate 90th birthday

leave a comment »

They also had a large 900 acres settlement in Watervliet, Ohio outside Dayton, Ohio, near Kettering, named after the founders village in New York state, Watervliet, New York today known more as an arsenal and a weapons research center on the west shore of the Hudson River. I worked there when unmarked graves, a Shaker practice, were disturbed in a miscalculation for a research center for Dayton Power and Light. They had already put up a monument on the edge of the apple orchard, which turned out in the wrong location. We had a remote-sensing ground-penetrating radar survey and 2.1 miles of backhoe trenches dug by three machines just to make sure for the power company one hot September after Labor Day. The gentleman from the power company said they held a patent for condensed or evaporated milk, sold their own seeds and brooms and such from there.

I’ve been to the Canterbury Village too it’s an interesting place. Canterbury had an extensive water control system deriving power from water very efficiently, researched and published in the journal of the Society for Industrial Archeology. Additional archaeology has been conducted there recently under a federal roads program headed by David Starbuck who specializes in American “North Country” archaeology.

Newsvine – Carter’s new fight, over Ga. dams, a familiar one

leave a comment »

Before former President Jimmy Carter became president there was a weird choice before the Congress, back when it became popularly known that a small rare fish could hold up a dam, and the Encyclopedia Britannica published in its yearbook a built dam on the Rappahannock River, that in reality, due to popular outcry was never built, a choice in the Congress between a canal and an island. The canal, which was built, feeds from the waters of the Tennessee River with the Tombigbee River and created a barge canal that runs from northeastern Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico, at Mobile, Alabama, said in case the Mississippi River floods or dries up. I worked on the archaeology of it in 1979, at one site near the Waverly Plantation and the hometown of author “Tennessee” Williams, Columbus, Mississippi. The other, “choice” was an “energy island” for New York City where power generation would be concentrated and cables would carry the electricity to different nodes for the city rather than the various small plants around the city today. Some choice!

Considering the length of time this might be, requiring surveys which actually was the original intent of the current preservation laws, i.e., dam studies, it might make just practical sense to look other places for solutions since there is also as far as I know, no “Federal interpleader law” between the states that could solve it without creating a new TVA Tennessee Valley Authority, which had some of the first archaeology done, I’ve been told by many African-American women.

Virgin Galactic Mothership Unveiled by Branson (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

leave a comment »

I searched satellite imagery for Steve Fossett, who flew a Virgin sponsored jet around the world non-stop (along with other records) when he disappeared last Sept. 3, 2007 and I found a) the head of US search and rescue was replaced by a woman when it was found he had made fraudulent statements about his career achievements, b) the commercial imagery supplied through Amazon.com left a lot to be desired, i.e., I looked at over 12,000 images that were supposed to be an overlay of pre-day and post day that he disappeared and they very often did not even line up, like astronomers do to see the differences from one day to the next to spot movement, in this case features on the ground, c) compared to Amelia Earhart, in my opinion, perhaps over the sensitive nature of the area of California/Nevada, i.e., once one of the largest munitions storages in the world; practice runway for those elite troops that perished in the desert attempting to free some of the hostages during the 1979 US Embassy crisis; it seemed that there was hardly any government effort in comparison to find the world record holding aviator, or so it seemed. Perhaps on demand remote sensing, i.e., hyperspectral cameras, relatively cheap used in agriculture, geology, etc., onboard a ship like this might also aid future search and rescue efforts and not have to rely on the satellite scheduling bottlenecks and technology.

Watch The "W." Trailer (VIDEO)

W.

I hope it’s not about that other George W. Bush (6 months age difference) who had a small charge of “practicing medicine without a license” on a drugs charge in Texas. I hope it doesn’t have as many murders as “W” which had Twiggy and others of renown in it. Word is single letter movies never do well maybe this will change it. How did Stone get into Greenwich, CT? They must have filmed it somewhere else.
