Casa da Praia - You're a Firework

==== Mesmo com um dia pesado, gostaria de fechar esse mês de Janeiro com alguma coisa bacana. Nada mais justo que escolher uma música, um clipe para isso. ‘Firework’ da Katy Perry passa exatamente a mensagem que eu gostaria de passar nesse momento. Confere aí o clipe e a tradução da música feito pelo site do Terra.com.br .


Fogo de Artifício – Katy Perry

Você já se sentiu como um saco plástico
Flutuando pelo vento
Querendo começar de novo?
Você já se sentiu frágil
Como um castelo de cartas
A um sopro de desmoronar?
Você já se sentiu enterrado
Gritando sob seis palmos
Mas ninguém parece ouvir nada?

Você sabe que ainda há uma chance para você?
Porque há uma faísca em você
Você só tem que acendê-la
E deixá-la brilhar
Apenas domine a noite
Como o dia da independência

Porque baby, você é um fogo de artifício
Vá em frente, mostre o que você vale
Faça-os fazer "oh, oh, oh"
Enquanto você é atirado pelo céu
Baby, você é um fogo de artifício
Vamos, deixe suas cores explodirem
Faça-os fazer "oh oh oh"
Você vai deixá-los todos surpresos

Você não tem que se sentir como um desperdício de espaço
Você é original, não pode ser substituído
Se você soubesse o que o futuro guarda
Depois de um furacão vem um arco-íris
Talvez a razão pela qual todas as portas estejam fechadas
É que você possa abrir uma que te leve para a estrada perfeita
Como um relâmpago, seu coração vai brilhar
E quando chegar a hora, você saberá

Boom, boom, boom
Mais brilhante que a lua, lua, lua
Sempre esteve dentro de você, você, você
E agora é hora de deixá-lo sair

Boom, boom, boom
Mais brilhante que a lua, lua, lua
Boom, boom, boom
Mais brilhante que a lua, lua, lua

==== Todos nós somos especiais a nossa maneira! O que está faltando hoje é a decisão de cada um em se valorizar!
==== Fica a dica!

Casa da Praia - Luto

==== E o final do mês acabou sendo mais triste do que eu esperava. A notícia que um conhecido que trabalhava em uma empresa onde já prestei assessoria contábil e fiscal dois anos atrás, acabou por deixar o final do mês mais triste. Com 37 anos, o motorista de um caminhão de uma transportadora, tentou fazer uma ultrapassagem em lugar proibido. Um caminhão vinha no sentido contrário, o que não permitiu chance para qualquer reação. O homem morreu na hora enquanto a cabine do caminhão ficou completamente destruída. Ele deixa a esposa e um filho de 2 anos.
 ==== Não tem como não ficar triste com isso. Mesmo sabendo da imprudência por parte o cara, o difícil mesmo é deixar a esposa e o filho de 2 anos sozinhos. Pense na criança perguntando por seu pai? Pense no sofrimento da esposa nesse momento? Pensem em uma família que estava se equilibrando? Tudo pode ser varrido do mapa em míseros segundos...
==== Sei que esse não foi o primeiro, muito menos será o último caso, por isso conscientização nas estradas meu povo! Por favor, pensem em suas famílias! Pensem naquelas pessoas que amam você e que você ama. Sua vida é uma só, por isso valorize-a! Isso tudo o que posso dizer...

SPFW: ALEXANDRE HERCHCOVITCH WINTER 2011











For the winter of 2011, Alexandre Herchcovitch abandoned all the vibrant colors that filled the summer shows and prefers to follow a darker palette with the full range of grays and blacks punctuated by yellow. Herchcovitch's inspiration came from the violent forces of nature such as volcanic rocks, magma and volcanoes. I loved the entire collection and my focus is mainly on extremely deconstructed pieces, and the mix of lace with a more austere figure was a touch of genius to give the femininity that the pieces needed, representing the magma pioneering the rocks.


Our favorite look was paraded by Luciana Curtis, consisting of a dress with volume at the shoulders and has leather straps that held the arms of model prisoners close to the body - the way, had seen something in the latest edition of ModaLisboa summer 2011, in the collection "ID-What is your identity?" of Portuguese designer Dino Alves, where the models came just arrested with arms at your sides. But despite the apparent deconstruction some pieces can easily be used in day-to-day, alone or mixed with basic and tailoring.

Para o inverno de 2011, Alexandre Herchcovitch abandonou todas as cores vibrantes que encheram dos desfiles de Verão e prefere seguir por uma paleta mais sombria com toda a gama de cinzas e pretos, pontuado pelo amarelo. Herchcovitch vai buscar a sua inspiração à força violenta da natureza, como as rochas vulcânicas, o magma e os vulcões. Adorei toda a colecção e o meu destaque vai sobretudo para as peças extremamente desconstruídas e a mistura das rendas com uma figura mais austera foi um toque de génio para dar a feminilidade que a peças precisavam, representando o magma abrindo caminho pelas rochas.


O nosso look favorito foi desfilado por Luciana Curtis, composto por um vestido com volumes nos ombros e alças com detalhes em couro que mantinham os braços da modelo presos rente ao corpo – Aliás, já tínhamos visto algo assim na última edição da ModaLisboa Verão 2011, na colecção “ID- Qual é a tua identidade?” do criador português Dino Alves.  Mas, apesar da aparente desconstrução as peças podem perfeitamente ser usadas no dia-a-dia , sozinhas ou misturadas com básicos.

The Voronezh Aliens


Summary: On September 27, 1989 in Voronezh, Russian Federation several young children claimed to have seen a three-eyed alien with a robot escort. The alien was said to be about nine foot tall. The craft, according to eye witness testimony, landed on the outskirts of the city. Shortly thereafter, the tall alien appeared, and upon seeing the young lad, shot a type of weapon at him, causing him to vanish before the eyes of the other people around him.

Incident: One of the most bizarre accounts of UFO folklore involves an incident that allegedly occurred in Voronezh, Russia. This case was reported in the United States by the St. Louis Dispatch. The story was originally published on October 11, 1989, in America, but its origin was the Russian newspaper TASS.

The report recounts the adventures of several young children who claimed to have seen a three-eyed alien with a robot escort. The alien was said to be about nine foot tall. The craft, according to eye witness testimony, landed on the outskirts of the city. Shortly thereafter, the tall alien appeared, and upon seeing the young lad, shot a type of weapon at him, causing him to vanish before the eyes of the other people around him.

There are several important elements one must keep in mind regarding this extremely strange case of a close encounter. The original details of the case were brought forward by Genrikh Silanov, head of the Voronezh Geophysical Laboratory, who gave details to the TASS agency. Silanov stated that the media took an enormous amount of creative freedom with his report.

"Don't believe all you hear from Tass," he stated." We never gave them part of what they published."

The agency had informed the entire world that Russian scientists had confirmed that an alien spaceship carrying giants with tiny heads had landed in Voronezh, a city of over 800,000 people located about 300 miles southeast of Moscow. They stated that as many as three of these giant creatures had emerged from the alien ship. The ship was described as a large, shining ball. These strange creatures were said to have walked in a nearby park, accompanied by a menacing robot. Ironically, TASS was the only media member to print the story in Russia. The newspaper Pravda declined to print, or comment on the strange tale.

In defense of the TASS account, Soviet reporter Skaya Kultura said that the agency was following the ''the golden rule of journalism." "The reader must know everything.''

The TASS account stated that the UFO landed in Voronezh on September 27, 1989, at 6:30 P.M. Young boys playing soccer witnessed the event, stating that a pinkish glow preceded the descent of the unusual flying craft. The pink glow became a deep red as it touched down. Most witnesses described the object as a flattened, disc shape. A crowd quickly gathered, and peered through a hatch that opened. They saw a ''three-eyed alien'' about 10 feet tall, clad in silvery overalls and bronze-colored boots and wearing a disk on his chest. "

The TASS account also stated: "A boy screamed with fear, but when the alien gazed at him, with eyes shining, he fell silent, unable to move. Onlookers screamed, and the UFO and the creatures disappeared."

According to the report, about five minutes later, they reappeared. The alien had an object similar to a pistol - a tube about 20 inches long, which it pointed at an unidentified 16-year-old boy, making him disappear. The alien went inside the sphere, which then took off. At the same time, the boy reappeared.

"Children and eyewitnesses of the abnormal phenomenon have been questioned by police workers and journalists," wrote E. Efremov, the Voronezh correspondent for Soviet Skaya Kultura."

"There are no discrepancies in the description of the sphere itself or the actions of the aliens. Moreover, all the children who became witnesses to this event are still afraid, even now."

Several drawings were made by some of the children who supposedly witnessed the events of Voronezh. A couple of these are included here. One of the drawings showed the Cyrillic alphabet character "zhe" on the side of the UFO.

TASS listed three witnesses' names, all of whom were youngsters. They also stated that a group of international researchers would be investigating the claims of the witnesses.

Voronezh residents interviewed later claimed they had observed this UFO not just during the above incident but also many times on September 21, 23, 29 and October 2, between 6 and 9 PM. Some of these incidents involved a different entity: small, with grayish-green face and blue overcoat resembling a loose raincoat.

This phenomenal account is still in need of more eye witness testimony and research. The Voronezh landing remains an unsolved mystery.

Strange Tale of the 3-Eyed Alien That Zapped a Boy!

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Oct. 11, 1989 - MOSCOW - A three-eyed alien with a robot sidekick landed aboard a spaceship and made a boy vanish by zapping him with a pistol, a Soviet newspaper reported Tuesday in a second day of strange tales in the state-run media.

But as the bizarre saga of the space invasion of the city of Voronezh unfolded for a second day, a scientist whose words were used to buttress the first published report voiced doubts and said he was in part misquoted.

''Don't believe all you hear from Tass,'' Genrikh Silanov, head of the Voronezh Geophysical Laboratory, said from Voronezh in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. ''We never gave them part of what they published.''

On Monday, the usually staid, official Soviet news agency told the world that scientists had confirmed that an alien spaceship carrying giant people with tiny heads had touched down in Voronezh, a city of more than 800,000 people about 300 miles southeast of Moscow.

As many as three aliens 13 feet tall left the spacecraft, described as a large shining ball, and walked in the park with a small robot, Tass reported. A Tass duty officer stood by the story. ''It is not April Fools' today,'' he said.

The purported close encounter in Voronezh was only the latest weird tale to appear in the Soviet media. Under the policy of glasnost, or openness, the media have recently told of other sightings of unidentified flying objects and the yeti, or Abominable Snowman.

Monday's report spawned rumors in Moscow, including one that the aliens told Voronezh residents the Earth would be destroyed by the year 2000 if people didn't stop polluting it.

Nonetheless, a Communist Party paper whose avowed mission is to write about culture was the only major national daily to print anything Tuesday about the UFO, indicating that more authoritative newspapers like Pravda had thought the topic too hot to handle.

Sovietskaya Kultura said its coverage had been motivated by ''the golden rule of journalism: The reader must know everything.''

The daily quoted witnesses as saying that the UFO flew into Voronezh on Sept 27. At 6:30 p.m., it said, boys playing soccer saw a pink glow in the sky, then saw a deep red ball about 10 yards in diameter. The ball circled, vanished, then reappeared minutes later and hovered, it said.

A crowd rushed to the site, Sovietskaya Kultura said, and through an open hatch saw a ''three-eyed alien'' about 10 feet tall, clad in silvery overalls and bronze-colored boots and wearing a disk on his chest.

The newspaper, quoting witnesses, gave this account:

The UFO landed. Two creatures, one apparently a robot, exited. A boy screamed with fear, but when the alien gazed at him, with eyes shining, he fell silent, unable to move. Onlookers screamed, and the UFO and the creatures disappeared.

About five minutes later, they reappeared. The alien had a ''pistol'' - a tube about 20 inches long, which it pointed at an unidentified 16-year-old boy, making him disappear. The alien went inside the sphere, which took off. At the same time, the boy reappeared.

''Children and eyewitnesses of the abnormal phenomenon have been questioned by police workers and journalists,'' wrote E. Efremov, the Voronezh correspondent for Sovietskaya Kultura. ''There are no discrepancies in the description of the sphere itself or the actions of the 'aliens.' Moreover,
all the children who became witnesses to this event are still afraid, even now.''

It gave the names of only three witnesses, all youngsters.

Scientists from a nationwide group that investigates ''abnormal phenomena'' were looking into the landing, the newspaper said.

Soviets Report Alien Sighting

Associated Press, Oct. 9, 1989

By JOHN IAMS Associated Press Writer

MOSCOW (AP) -- The official Tass news agency said today that scientists have confirmed the landing of an alien spaceship carrying giant people with tiny heads.

The report was the latest strange tale in the official Soviet media, which under the policy of glasnost, "or openess," have recently told of other sightings of unidentified flying objects and alien creatures.

"Scientists have confirmed that an unidentified flying object recently landed in a park in the Russian city of Voronezh," Tass said in a dispatch from the city, 300 miles southeast of Moscow. "They have also identified the landing site and found traces of aliens who made a short promenade about the park."

Tass said Voronezh residents saw a large shining ball or disk hovering over the park. They reported that the UFO landed and up to three creatures similar to humans emerged, accompanied by a small robot, Tass said.

"The aliens were three or even four meters (9 to 12 feet) tall, but with very small heads," the news agency quoted witnesses as saying. "They walked near the ball or disc and then disappeared inside."

The report was similar to a story last summer in the daily newspaper Socialist Industry, which told of a purported "close encounter" between a milkmaid and an alien in Central Russia's Perm region.

In that report, Lyubov Medvedev was quoted as saying she encountered an alien creature "resembling a man, but taller than average with short legs." The creature, she said, had "only a small knob instead of a head."

The Tass report, which did not give the date of the purported landing in Voronezh, said onlookers were "overwhelmed with a fear that lasted for several days."

Genrikh Silanov, head of the Voronezh Geophysical Laboratory, told Tass that scientists investigating the UFO report found a 20-yard depression with four deep dents as well as two pieces of unidentified rocks.

"At first glance, they looked like sandstone of a deep-red color. However, mineralogical analysis has shown that the substance cannot be found on Earth," Tass quoted Silanov as saying. "However, additional tests are needed to reach a more definite conclusion."

Silanov said the landing site and path taken by the aliens were confirmed using the "biolocation" method of tracking, but Tass didn't explain what that was.

Further confirmation came from witnesses, who were not told of the experiments and whose accounts matched precisely the scientific findings, Tass said.

The Tass report said residents also reported recent sightings of a "banana-shaped" object in the sky.

In July, Tass disputed a report in Socialist Industry quoting a UFO specialist, A. Kuzovkin, as saying a 26-foot-wide patch of burned ground near southern Moscow was probably caused by the landing of a UFO.

Tass said firefighters believe a haystack simply caught fire and scorched the ground.

WAS IT A HOAX?

In the Russian Federation, the case was welcomed by official sources and the medias. The account was published in a Swiss newspaper, which made the case seem solid and real. Unfortunately, this may not be the case.

Genrikh Silanov, head of the Voronezh Geophysical Laboratory, told Tass that scientists investigating the UFO report found a 20-yard depression with four deep dents as well as two pieces of unidentified rocks.

What kind of substance? What was the composition? The Voronezh case is possibly a hoax. Silanov declared the landing site and path taken by the aliens were confirmed by their use of a "biolocation" tracking method.

Silanov stated:

"To locate the place of landing, we had recourse to the technique of biological magnetism", indicated the chief of the laboratory of the expedition sent in the park, Guenrikh Silanov. "It is a circular surface of 20 meters in diameter. Four depressions of 4 A 5 centimetres of depth and 14 to 16 centimetres in diameter are quite visible there. They form a rhombus. We also took two samples of the mysterious ground. At first sight they resemble dark red sandstone. However, after mineralogical analysis, we established that it was a rock without equivalent on Earth. To give a more precise conclusion, we need to make complex additional studies."

French ufologist Jean-Jacques Velasco contacted Silanov by phone, starting a written correspondance. Silanov offered more unusual claims including his group had telepathic contacts with extraterrestrials.

Silanov is not a scientist...his laboratory is a private structure and he is a member of a UFO hunter group. Silanov collected the drawings from the children, revealing the controverted symbol of UMMO on the spacecraft.

The media could not retrieve adult witnesses of the close encounter, despite the thousands of witnesses reported.

Tass was the official media of the government and presented the party line, even under the policy of Glasnost. Despite this fact, it remains as one of the strangest tales from the from the Russians.

Fortean / Alternative News: Whales Return to NYC, Russian Frankenstein and Egyptian Antiquities Looted


Whales, dolphins and seals return to New York City Harbor

NYDailyNews - Whales, dolphins and seals have made a triumphant return to the waters just outside New York Harbor - and the comeback has even sparked whale and seal-watching tours.

Tom Paladino, captain of two ferry boats from the Rockaways, says pods of aquatic mammals off the city's coast have "increased tenfold."

"We used to see 10 whales a year - now we see 100," he said. "We saw dolphins almost on a daily basis between June and September."

There are so many more seals in New York Harbor that earlier this month he started weekend tours on his ferry, American Princess.

On one trip last weekend, he counted 14 lolling on a small island off Staten Island.

Cornell University Prof. Chris Clark estimates that as many as 30 to 50 fin whales now live full-time in the waters just past the Verrazano Bridge.

Acoustical monitors installed by Cornell in and near the harbor discovered six species of whales touring the New York-New Jersey bite - "a real menagerie of giants," he said.

Experts say anti-hunting laws and cleaner waters may have brought back whales and their cousins after being largely absent for a century.

The numbers are "far, far more than expected, even for me," Clark said. "I've been surprised elsewhere in the world, but off New York - yikes!"

Much of the data was collected by a federally funded study by Cornell and the state Department of Environmental Conservation.

When acoustical traps were laid in New York waters in 2008, researchers were surprised to hear not only the 20-minute serenades of humpbacks, but a cacophony of other fish making a racket, Clark said.

"Black drum fish lit up the night with their choruses. Males were out there singing their hearts out: 'Hey Baby! Hey Baby! Hey Baby!' There's a cornucopia of life 10 miles off the Verrazano Bridge. It's mind-boggling!" he said.

Officials said the study was supposed to last three years but was abandoned when a DEC official overseeing the project quit to get her doctorate. Budget cuts made it impossible to hire a replacement.

Clark said the whale study needs to be revived because no one knows the extent of whale activity around New York Harbor - or how best to protect them.

Environmentalists are especially worried about endangered species like the Right Whale, spotted locally along with Humpback, Fin, Sei, Minke and Blue whales.

The Right Whale is the slowest-moving local species, traveling at no more than 10 knots, and is the most prone to being killed by ships.

Clark is hoping to raise $1 million to revive the whale study and install a sophisticated monitoring system like one in Boston that notified boats to slow down.

"We don't know what's off our coastline," said Maureen Murphy of the Citizens Campaign for the Environment. "I know more from 19th century books than I do from anything printed in the last century."

Mummy fried - woman sets fire to house while trying to reanimate long-dead sister

RT - A night fire in an apartment block has been caused by a woman who tried to reanimate her long-dead elder sister with electricity.

The horrific story happened in Ekaterinburg, the biggest city in the Urals.

The suspected arsonist, 69, apparently was not completely of sound mind, judging by her mental health record.

A year ago, her 73-year-old sister died from natural causes, prosecutors told Noviy Region news agency. However, instead of reporting the death, the woman preserved the body with gasoline and had been trying the reanimate it ever since.

Her last macabre experiment on Tuesday night involved “jump starting” the mummified corpse with two wires connecting the body’s hand and neck to the mains.

Despite what Frankenstein movies suggest, the electric current did not revive the body, instead setting it on fire.

The surviving sister is now in hospital suffering from burns and smoke inhalation.

Mystery of 200 Dead Cows in Wisconsin Solved...Moldy Sweet Potatoes

aolnews - Authorities investigating the deaths of 200 cows in Wisconsin have come up with an unlikely culprit: the sweet potato.

The cows were found dead in a Stockton pasture two weeks ago. Locals were left scratching their heads about what caused the mass die-off.

Investigators from the University of Wisconsin have determined that the animals were killed by a poison found in spoiled sweet potatoes that were part of the cattle's feed.

"It is likely that a mycotoxin from moldy sweet potato was a major factor in the disease and deaths of these steers," said Peter Vanderloo, associate director of the Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.

There's been a spate of mass animal deaths in recent weeks, from fish in Maryland and Arkansas to birds in Louisiana and South Dakota.

The farmer who owned the cows had thought they might have fallen victim to disease such as infectious bovine rhinotracheitis, according to The Wisconsin Rapids Tribune. Vanderloo and his team ruled that out.

"None of the major respiratory pathogens of cattle were identified in the samples provided to the lab," said Vanderloo.

He also explained that the toxic sweet potatoes were not in the human food supply chain, so there was no threat to people.

While the recent mass deaths of animals have spawned some exotic conspiracy theories, scientists have come up with more mundane solutions for some of the mysteries.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture acknowledged last week that it was behind the deaths of thousands of starlings in South Dakota. The USDA said it put out poisoned bait after a farmer complained the birds were defecating in his animal feed.

The thousands of red-winged blackbirds that dropped out of the sky in Arkansas on Dec. 31 apparently died of blunt force trauma. Investigators say loud noises prompted the birds to take a rare night flight, and that they likely slammed into objects such as trees and houses.

Climber survives and stands up after 1000 foot fall

guardian - A climber who fell 1,000ft (300 metres) down the face of a Scottish mountain was found by a rescue helicopter, standing up and studying a map and suffering only cuts and bruises.

The 36-year-old man, who has been named as Adam Potter, from Glasgow, was in a group of four climbers who reached the 3,589ft summit of Sgurr Choinnich Mor, about five miles from Ben Nevis, early yesterday afternoon, when he lost his footing and fell. He was kept overnight at the Southern General hospital, in Glasgow, for observation for injuries that were said to be "non life-threatening".

Police said Potter was happy for his name to be released but would not be giving any interviews. They described him as "the very fortunate climber".

His first piece of good fortune was that a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter was already in the air on a training exercise and arrived at the scene only 35 minutes later.

The rest of the group pointed rescuers in the direction of Potter's fall, down the steep and craggy eastern slope of the mountain.

When they spotted somebody standing far below at 792.5 metres and beneath three high craggy outcrops, they assumed it must be the wrong man and flew back to the summit, where they saw bits of Potter's kit scattered in a vertical line down the face of the mountain.

A paramedic was winched down to check him and found him bruised, with a minor chest injury and some superficial cuts, although he was described as "shaking from extreme emotional shock and the sheer relief of still being alive".

"We honestly thought it couldn't have been him as he was on his feet, reading a map," Lieutenant Tim Barker, the observer for the crew from HMS Gannet, based in Prestwick, Ayrshire, said. "It was quite incredible. He must have literally glanced off the outcrops as he fell, almost flying."

Potter was winched on board the helicopter, where he was checked again by a doctor before being transferred to hospital in Glasgow.

Barker said: "He is lucky to be alive. It's hard to believe that someone could have fallen that distance on that terrain and been able to stand up at the end of it, let alone chat to us in the helicopter on the way to the hospital. I have to say that, when we got the call and realised the details of where he'd fallen, we did expect to arrive on scene to find the worst-case scenario."

Plundering of Tombs, Museums, Antiquities Widespread, Egyptian Official Reports

NatGeo - Widespread looting of museums and antiquities are occurring across Egypt, not just in Cairo, the news website Bikya Masr reported an Egyptian official saying in a statement. The official called on the global archaeology community to be on "high alert" for ancient artifacts being smuggled out of Egypt.

The website quoted an antiquities official, Mohamed Megahed, saying that "Immense damages to Abusir and Saqqara" have been reported. Looters allegedly have gone into tombs that had been sealed and destroyed much of the tombs and took artifacts, the site added.

Gangs 'Digging Day and Night'

"Only the Imhotep Museum and adjacent central areas were protected by the military. In Abusir, all tombs were opened; large gangs digging day and night," Megahed said.

Bikya Masr added:

"According to Megahed, storage facilities in South Saqqara, just south of Cairo, has also been looted. He did mention it was hard to ascertain what, and how much, was taken.

"He said Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) officials 'are only today [Sunday] able to check on the museums storage, but early reports suggest major looting.'

"Please spread the word to law enforcement officials worldwide."

"He called on the international archaeology community to issue a 'high alert' statement on Old Kingdom remains and Egyptian antiquities in general, "and please spread the word to law enforcement officials worldwide."

Looters of museums, 'who may be encouraged by outside Egypt entities, may try to use general confusion to get things out of the country.'"

Egyptian Museum "Looted by Security Guards"

The looting and destruction of antiquities in the Egyptian Museaum in Cairo on Friday evening was the work of the museum's poorly paid security guards, a former director of the museum is reported saying on the website of the German news organization Die Zeit.

Wafaa el-Saddik told Zeit Online that the museum's security guards earned about 250 Egyptian pounds, or 35 euros (U.S.$ 48) a month. "We have about 160 security guards plus several dozen police officers who are basically conscripts in police uniforms. These policemen earn even less," Wafaa el-Saddik said. Some of the guards had nothing, she added. One sold everything he had to get medicine for his sick child. Others were hungry "even at home."

El-Saddik also said that the antiquities museum in Memphis and its storerooms "were robbed on Saturday morning completely." She said she had received calls from the staff asking for help and she had alerted the police and the military.

"The biggest problem is the lack of protection of our museums," she said.

A TRUE SHORTSTORY: A MAN APART IN A NON-DAY!

"I don't believe in witches but... they are truly real!" Photo by Joao Lamares Photography


It was a day stuck in a puddle, and a man was floating in the marsh as an empty shell, without conscience. The man didn’t know the reason for this non-day was born, he only was able to feel the anguish like a thin plastic film wrapped him from head to toe. He felt he was that dented packing, tossing as useless garbage to pollute the mud, the mud of impure thoughts. He knew he had to make a bid to look beyond the muddy ground, and he couldn’t fall down in that deafening silence of the quiet day-no. A man is free only when he feels free, regardless of the rough walls, the square light or the fact that he doesn't want going there! The man is free only when he can decide where to go ... or not to go.

A man apart is a too easy target for a non-day, even if he felt himself a depressingly curious. So the man decided he had no way out, it was needed to look at where the birds hover and the clouds, full of gray light, were pretty like witches mounted on broomstick spells. And click click click click click click… the man fired. The man fired with the most compelling weapon in the world tuned by the skills and art of the gifted sniper. The man came back to shoot again and again… click click click ...He looked again, hitting the target, tuning the iris, imagining the perfect target in the brain and returned to shoot over and over again click click click.

The next day, and if there was a newspaper where fiction does not overtake reality, if there had been a serious journalist who objectified the facts without opinions and political-subjective arguments, it had been written "Man fires several times against the non-day with his camera… and killed it. "


(Portuguese version)

Era um dia metido numa poça de água, e um homem a flutuar no pântano como uma embalagem vazia, sem consciência. Não sabia a razão daquele ser um dia-não, só era capaz de sentir essa angústia que como uma película de plástico finíssima o envolvia dos pés à cabeça. Era essa embalagem amolgada, arremessada e inútil, lixo a poluir a lama, a lama dos pensamentos impuros. Sabia que tinha de fazer um esforço para elevar o olhar para além do chão lamacento, não se deixar cair nessa inquietação quieta do silêncio ensurdecedor dos dias-não. Um homem só é livre quando se sente livre, independentemente das paredes rugosas, da luz aos quadradinhos ou do facto de não querer ir por ali! O homem só é livre quando pode decidir por onde ir... ou não ir.

Um homem aos pedaços é um alvo demasiado fácil para um dia-não, ainda que o homem se sinta depressivamente curioso! Assim, o homem decidiu que não tinha saída, era mesmo preciso colocar o olhar onde os pássaros pairam e as nuvens baixas carregadas de cinza e luz se parecem com bruxas montadas em vassouras mágicas. E clic clic clic… clic clic clic… o homem disparou. A arma mais convincente do mundo afiada pelo engenho e arte do atirador. O homem voltou a disparar clic clic clic… olhou de novo, acertou a mira, afinou a íris, imaginou no cérebro o alvo perfeito e voltou a disparar clic clic clic.

No dia seguinte e se houvesse um jornal onde a ficção não se sobrepusesse à realidade, se tivesse havido um jornalista sério que objectivasse os factos sem opiniões e acervos politico-subjectivos teria sido escrito "Homem dispara várias vezes contra o Dia-Não com a sua máquina fotográfica e mata-o.

UFO Orb Event - The Dome of the Rock / Temple Mount, Jerusalem



Click for video

Commentary: This morning around 01:00 AM at the promenade of Armon Hantziv in Jerusalm, i was witness(with another guy), an amazing ufo aircraft over Jerusalem old city (mount Moriah) Dome of the Rock,Temple Mount,قبة الصخرة, הר הבית.
What is the meaning of this sighting?

Commentary: Proof Jerusalem UFO video is real. A new video of the UFO over Jerusalem surfaced tonight from a tourist that was filming while on a late night tour of Jerusalem on January 28th 2011. The video is not the clearest because it was dark out, but it catches the same glowing orb that was caught on tape from across town.

Another statement of the event: "Witnesses noticed the large oval shaped UFO suspended on the night skyline. At about one minute into the clip the UFO descends almost to ground level directly over the Dome of the Rock-Temple Mount. The oval UFO hovers there for a short while, flashes lights into surrounding buildings then shoots upwards at an incredible speed. Witnesses were totally taken back and amazed at what they had just seen.”

Alfred Lambremont Webre asks: Three questions now linger for UFO and Exopolitics experts and observers around the world

Question #1: Is the Dome of the Rock UFO orb a genuine ET phenomenon?

Question #2: Is the ET or interdimensional intelligence behind the Dome of the Rock UFO Orbs sending an intentional, meaningful “context communication” to humanity by this UFO event?

Question #3: Does the Dome of the Rock UFO event fit the pattern predicted by former NORAD officer Stanley A. Fulham in his Dec. 3, 2010 communiqué that [Extraterrestrial] “Interventions will then accelerate, not so much over our cities, but dispersed over our continents with sightings increasing in duration. The intent of these interventions is to increase mankind’s acceptance of the alien phenomena, so that hopefully, we will be prepared to accept a face-to-face encounter and communicate, perhaps as early as next year (2011).”
- Is UFO orb over Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem a context communication by ET?

The Dome of the Rock shrine in Jerusalem is the oldest extant Islamic monument. The rock over which the shrine was built is sacred to both Muslims and Jews. The Prophet Muhammad, founder of Islam, is traditionally believed to have ascended into heaven from the site. In Jewish tradition, it is here that Abraham, the progenitor and first patriarch of the Hebrew people, is said to have prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac. The Dome and Al-Aqṣā Mosque are both located on the Temple Mount, the site of Solomon’s Temple and its successors.

NOTE: now that the second video of the UFO over the Dome of the Rock surfaced, an argument could be made for the authenticity of this event. The speculation has just begun but I'm already reading that many people are using this in context with the Egyptian uprising, the second coming of Christ, as well as the Rapture. Be prepared for a number of religious theories. Hopefully, the UFO community will offer balanced query...Lon
