Misto Quente: Ozzy Foda, Enquete dos Chinelos e o Juventude Vencendo

==== Misto Quente para fechar este mês de março com informações e curiosidades. Começo com essa aqui:
==== Ozzy em pleno estádio do Internacional mostrando uma bandeira do Grêmio. Simplesmente foda! Ri muito! O cara é foda! Hehehe!
==== Falando em Grêmio, como fiquei feliz com a vitória do Juventude sobre o Grêmio. Pelo menos esse ano eu vou poder dizer que ao menos uma vez nós vencemos o Grêmio. Oh coisa boa!
==== E abordando agora a enquete que nos embalou neste mês, enquete essa mais votada de todos os tempos, eu perguntei se você gostaria de ser atendido por alguém em uma loja que está usando chinelos. A explicação dessa pergunta está em uma postagem que você pode ler clicando aqui. Resumidamente, comentei que em algumas lojas não é adequado usar chinelos para trabalhar. Parece que o pessoal ficou mesmo no ‘tanto faz’ com cerca de 42% dos votos. 27% das pessoas falaram que não gostariam e outras 23% não acreditam ter problemas por causa disso.
==== Cada um com sua opinião, mas confesso que não gostei nada de ser atendido por alguém usando chinelos. No trabalho, EU acredito que deva existir certa conduta, logo roupas adequadas, sendo que o chinelo não faz parte dela.
==== Mês que vem tem mais! Deixo vocês com Adam Lambert com a música ‘Whataya want from me’. Até mais!

Especial Clipes Estressantes - Offspring e Korn

==== Clipes estressantes também estão de volta neste último dia do mês. Hoje é dia de ficar tenso ao som de Korn e Offspring. Boa pedida para a noite?
==== Em ‘Hit that’ não tem como não ficar estressado com aquele cachorro que decidiu repovoar a cidade. Ele se mete em confusões amorosas, tem filhotes demais, destrói meia cidade e por aí vai... Tensão!
==== Já o Korn é uma banda tensa e mal educada. Eu não curto muito a banda, sendo que fico meio irritado cada vez que vejo um clipe deles. Sendo assim, fecho esse especial estressado com certo estresse. Não é justo?
==== Era isso!

Dica Musical: 03/11 Fort Minor

==== Dica Musical também está de volta nesta reta final do mês de março. Sim, mesmo o mês dando adeus, a blog não para!
==== E a dica de hoje fica por conta de um projeto paralelo de hip hop de um cara de uma banda de rock. Explicando isso melhor, Mike Shinoda da banda Linkin Park, atacou também em um projeto paralelo chamado Fort Minor. Isso ocorreu alguns anos atrás. Baseado nesse projeto bem bacana, acabei percebendo mesmo que o cara é a mente criativa por trás do Linkin Park.

==== O que interessa aqui é Fort Minor. Esse projeto paralelo de Shinoda contou com muitas colaborações em um álbum bem bacana e bem completo que agrada quem curte hip hop. Alguns clipes foram lançados, muitos deles que estamos vendo aqui.
==== Alguns fãs de LP torceram o nariz para esse projeto. Ele não chega perto de LP, mas foi bacana ver Shinoda em algo solo.
==== Até mais!

Starchild Project DNA Results: Skull Possibly From New Earthly Species

From the Starchild Project

SUMMARY: Early in 2011, a geneticist attempting to recover Starchild Skull DNA identified several fragments that matched with human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). Comparing those fragments with matching fragments from human mtDNA produced an astonishing result. In every comparison, the Starchild presented many more nucleotide differences than are normally found among humans. In one comparison detailed in this report, the compared segments of human mtDNA came from one of its most highly conserved regions. Across 160 ± nucleotides in this segment, only 1 single variation is found among the 33 human haplogroups. In contrast, the same length of Starchild mtDNA has 17 differences! Of those 17, a significant number should be confirmed by multiple repetitions of the test. If several are confirmed (which is highly likely), would it be enough to consider establishing a new Earthly species? It would certainly throw open the door to serious consideration.

Please go to Starchild Project for all data

Conclusion & Call To Action: After 12 years of struggle, the Starchild Skull is truly poised to make history. When we have secured the funding needed to carry out the recovery and sequencing of its entire genome, it will provide uncontestable proof that at least once, 900 years ago, a being somewhat like us but definitely not human lived and died and was buried on our planet.

Unfortunately, achieving that historic moment requires far more than the Starchild Project team can deliver without substantial help. A wealthy investor—not merely a donor, an investor—must be found to provide the funding necessary to do what must be done.

In this extraordinarily special case, the investment needed is $7 million USD. Why that amount? Every step of the DNA recovery and sequencing process will have to be verified with multiple repetitions until no possible doubt remains about any specific result. Also, in order that those completed results can be confirmed by independent researchers, the entire process must be recorded on film for academic scrutiny and historic posterity.

The Starchild Project intends to incorporate some of that footage into creating two theater-quality documentary films during the 1.5 to 3 years required for the DNA’s recovery and analysis. These films will cover the Starchild Skull’s entire story, from its discovery to completion of the DNA analyses. They will be valuable both historically, as the record of this milestone event in human history, and financially, as market research indicates they will be enthusiastically welcomed in virtually every country on Earth.

It should be obvious to anyone that much more than $7 million can be made from two high quality films about such a pivotal shift in human awareness. If anyone reading this report personally knows anyone who might be interested in taking a front-and-center position as this historic event unfolds, please ask them to email:

A business proposal is available to any serious potential investor. The film project already has its producers, director, entertainment attorney, accountant, production team, and the enthusiastic cooperation of a state film council. Everything is in place except for the investment, the final hurdle that now requires only one astute decision to clear it.

Final Note: Explanations and terminology in this report are aimed at non-experts. Those with expert knowledge in genetics will naturally find its concepts and descriptions simplified.

The identity of certain research team members requires temporary anonymity. Their names will be revealed when they are ready to formally release reports for peer scrutiny.

Potential investors who want to know more, or to verify our geneticist’s work, can meet with him and tour his lab if they sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement. This will be on a case-by-case basis.

New Update Issued on the 'Starchild Skull'

A reader, Kat, forwarded the following to me: 'Yesterday I received this newsletter update from Lloyd on DNA testing on the Starchild skull which is intended to determine whether it is actually part extraterrestrial.' I don't receive the newsletter but have written on Lloyd Pye's contentions. Please note, it was my impression that the geneticist on the 'MonsterQuest' episode of 'Lizard Monster' stated that the DNA of the 'Starchild Skull' was entirely human and the facial reconstruction determined that the skull was manipulated through binding...but I could be be wrong. Anyway, please read the following. Thanks to Kat! Lon

We finally have a recovery of nuclear DNA from the Starchild!

This past weekend I met with the geneticist working on the Starchild's DNA. He explained how he can now prove the Starchild is not entirely human, which has been our position for years. Now it is no longer a question of "if," but of "when" and "how" we spread this astounding new reality beyond the mailing list. First, though, let me bring the list's newcomers up to speed.

In 2003 we had a DNA analysis that used human-only primers to recover the Starchild's mitochondrial DNA, the DNA outside the nucleus, which comes from the mother and her genetic line. That meant its mother was human. But we could not recover its nuclear DNA, which comes from both mother and father, which meant its father was not a human. Unfortunately, with the recovery technology of 2003 we couldn't prove what he was, which left us in scientific limbo. The "no result" from the search for the nuclear DNA clearly meant Dad wasn't human, but we could not prove that fact beyond all possible doubt.

Now, in 2010, there have been many improvements in the recovery process, and those improvements have been applied to the Starchild skull with the stunning result you see below. This is a gel sheet that shows a clear recovery of its nuclear DNA, which could not be done in 2003.

The next two screen shots are taken from the national genetic database at the National Institute of Health, NIH. That public-access database is a centralized repository of all genetic information generated by geneticists all over the world, and now covers essentially all living organisms on Earth, from various kinds of viruses and bacteria, to various kinds of crustaceans and fish, to all kinds of animals and plants, including great apes and humans.

For many species, humans included, there are already nucleotide sequences covering entire genomes. Therefore, sequences from the Starchild's DNA can be directly compared against this vast database to look for any matches. In one such comparison below, you see the text below the blue line at the bottom (if you can read it, sorry it's so fuzzy) that 265 base pairs (a good length) of recovered Starchild nuclear DNA matches perfectly with a gene on human chromosome 1. This verifies beyond any degree of doubt that some of the nuclear DNA seen in the gel sheet is from a human being.

In the one below, and again at the bottom, you see the stunning report that in a string of 342 base pairs (another good length), "No significant similarity (is) found." To recover a stretch of base pairs as long as that with NO reference in the NIH database is astounding because it means there is no known earthly corollary for what has been analyzed! This incredible anomaly will put the Starchild in history books!!!

Please understand that this result has now been verified several times, and a few more different fragments have been identified that cannot be matched in this database to anything known. Despite that fact, mainstream skeptics will be obligated by their positions to try to say it's some kind of gibberish or some kind of mistake because in their world view it simply can't be true.

Luckily, their bleating protests can be easily overcome with continued repetition of the result, finding more and more similar fragments in the library that will be created from the Starchild's DNA, which is what the geneticist is confident will happen over the next weeks and months---nothing but verification that a significant part of the Starchild's genome is not found on Earth.

I should add that I still can't reveal the name of the geneticist or where he works until we are ready to formally present his results to the world. However, trust me, he is a well-established professional and his facility is large and very credible. They don't want to be bombarded by media until they are prepared for it, and neither do I for that matter. Just know that you are a part of the "inner circle" of those who have put your faith in a dream that is now coming true.

Two more issues of importance:

(1) I still don't know where the recent "MonsterQuest" episode "Lizard Monster" can be viewed on the internet by people outside the U.S. If anyone knows how that can be found, please let me know and I'll share with the list. Thanks!

(2) The expenses for materials doing our research has now outstripped the amount donated by the list. It is now coming out of my pocket and I could use some help to bridge that gap. However, look on the bright side. This should be the last time I ever have to ask for your help in this way. ;-)

Videos: 'The Starchild Skull'

UFO Connection host Catherine Noble talks to researcher Loyd Pye on the finding of an alleged 'Aline Skull' that was found in a cave in Mexico and well known reporter and investigator Jamie Maussan about the sightings of UFOs by the Mexican Air Force.

Lloyd Pye, author of Everything You Know Is Wrong, has taken it upon himself to discover the identity of an unusual skull he has dubbed "The Starchild Skull." The skull, which was found in a mine shaft near Chihuahua, Mexico around 1930, is unusually wide at the back and exhibits larger than normal eye sockets. Although he says the origin of the skull is uncertain, Pye speculates on whether or not it could be of alien origin - or at least belonging to a human-alien hybrid. While some contend that the skull was merely that of a deformed human child, Pye wanted definitive proof and so, in late 1999, subjected the skull to DNA testing. The results of the test indicated that the skull was from a human being, but Pye points out that the lab could not extract sufficient strands of DNA to make a definitive conclusion, and therefore the question still remains open.

On the recent edition of 'UFO Hunters - The Grey Conspiracy', Pye indicated the fraternal DNA could not be found. His belief is that the 'Starchild' is probably an alien/human hybrid.

Israel going to the Moon?

If all goes according to plan, by December 2012 a team of three young Israeli scientists will have landed a tiny spacecraft on the moon, explored the lunar surface, and transmitted live video back to earth, thereby scooping up a $20 million prize (the Google Lunar X Prize), revolutionizing space exploration, and making the Jewish State the third nation (after the U.S. and Russia) to land a probe on the moon. And they’re doing it in their spare time.

The three engineers – Yariv Bash (electronics and computers), Kfir Damari (communication systems), and Yonatan Winetraub (satellite systems) all have high-level day jobs in the Israeli science and technology world, and also both teach and study. They all had heard of the Google Lunar X Prize independently, before being introduced by mutual friends who, as Yonatan puts it “thought we were all crazy enough to do it, so we should meet each other.”

By the end of November 2010 they had sketched together a novel plan to win the prize and submitted it to organizers. Only on December 21 (10 days before the December 31 deadline) did they set about raising the $50,000 entry fee. “Like good Israelis we left it to the last minute,” Yonatan laughs.

Since then they’ve recruited around 50 volunteers from across the Israeli science and technology community and have gained support from academic institutions, including the prestigious Weizmann Institute of Science (founded in 1933 by Chaim Weizmann, himself a successful chemist who went on to become Israel’s first president). They’re operating as a non-profit (“we’re looking for stakeholders,” says Project Coordinator Ronna Rubinstein), and any winnings will be invested in promoting science among Israeli youth.

The X Prize’s organizers say their competition is intended to attract “mavericks” who “take new approaches and think creatively about difficult problems, resulting in truly innovative breakthroughs.” They see the moon as a largely untapped resource, and believe that “inexpensive, regular access to the Moon is a critical stepping stone for further exploration.”

Maverick and creative thinkers the Israeli trio appear to be: According to the X Prize organizers, the 29 competing teams will spend between $15 million and $100 million on the project, with the earliest launch not scheduled until 2013. The Israelis aim to spend less than that (around $10 million) and to launch before 2013.

“One of reasons that we’re able to do this,” Kfir (who started programming aged six and wrote his first computer virus aged 11) explains, “is because of our different perspective. Most space missions aim to last many years and so have to be built in a certain way. Ours doesn’t have to last as long. This saves cost.”

Another way the team intends to keep costs down involves utilizing existing technology that just hasn’t previously been linked up for this purpose, rather than spending a new fortune. Naturally the team isn’t releasing specific details of the technology they’re using, but they’re confident that they’ve got what they need.

And once they’re on the moon? “The actual robot will be something the size of a coca-cola bottle,” says Yonatan. “Think about it – a cell phone has most of the capabilities necessary for communication and imaging, and to that we need to add a hopper” to move around the moon. “Simple” really. And the impact of this? “Once we do this it will break the glass ceiling,” Yonatan adds, “and show that space exploration doesn’t have to be expensive.”

As to why they got involved? “Three reasons,” say Yonatan, “Creating national pride, really putting Israel on the map as a start-up nation by doing something only the superpowers have done, and reigniting Israeli interest in science.” And it’s the third – rejuvenating interest among Israeli youth in science – that’s closest to these young scientists’ hearts.

In the 1960s and 1970s, they say, many young Israelis pursued careers in science, in part inspired by the American space program. Today that isn’t the case, and the number of high school seniors majoring in science is constantly declining. “We want to show that science isn’t just about sitting in a lab all day,” says Kfir.

In 1919 French hotelier Raymond Orteig offered $25,000 for the first non-stop flight between New York City and Paris. Eight years later Charles Lindbergh, considered an underdog, won the prize by making the crossing in his “Spirit of St. Louis.” That not only changed the way people saw flying, but how they saw the world.

The X Prize was inspired by the Orteig Prize, and if the “Spirit of Israel” is successful they can certainly count on changing how young Israelis see science and how others see Israel. They may also change how we all see the universe. - Forbes - Daniel Freedman


Fukushima radioactive fallout nears Chernobyl levels

Japan's damaged nuclear plant in Fukushima has been emitting radioactive iodine and caesium at levels approaching those seen in the aftermath of the Chernobyl accident in 1986. Austrian researchers have used a worldwide network of radiation detectors – designed to spot clandestine nuclear bomb tests – to show that iodine-131 is being released at daily levels 73 per cent of those seen after the 1986 disaster. The daily amount of caesium-137 released from Fukushima Daiichi is around 60 per cent of the amount released from Chernobyl.

The difference between this accident and Chernobyl, they say, is that at Chernobyl a huge fire released large amounts of many radioactive materials, including fuel particles, in smoke. At Fukushima Daiichi, only the volatile elements, such as iodine and caesium, are bubbling off the damaged fuel. But these substances could nevertheless pose a significant health risk outside the plant.

The organisation set up to verify the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) has a global network of air samplers that monitor and trace the origin of around a dozen radionuclides, the radioactive elements released by atomic bomb blasts – and nuclear accidents. These measurements can be combined with wind observations to track where the radionuclides come from, and how much was released.

The level of radionuclides leaking from Fukushima Daiichi has been unclear, but the CTBT air samplers can shed some light, says Gerhard Wotawa of Austria's Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics in Vienna.

For the first two days after the accident, the wind blew east from Fukushima towards monitoring stations on the US west coast; on the third day it blew south-west over the Japanese monitoring station at Takasaki, then swung east again. Each day, readings for iodine-131 at Sacramento in California, or at Takasaki, both suggested the same amount of iodine was coming out of Fukushima, says Wotawa: 1.2 to 1.3 × 1017 becquerels per day.

The agreement between the two "makes us confident that this is accurate", he says. So do similar readings at CTBT stations in Alaska, Hawaii and Montreal, Canada – readings at the latter, at least, show that the emissions have continued.

In the 10 days it burned, Chernobyl put out 1.76 × 1018 becquerels of iodine-131, which amounts to only 50 per cent more per day than has been calculated for Fukushima Daiichi. It is not yet clear how long emissions from the Japanese plant will continue.

Similarly, says Wotawa, caesium-137 emissions are on the same order of magnitude as at Chernobyl. The Sacramento readings suggest it has emitted 5 × 1015 becquerels of caesium-137 per day; Chernobyl put out 8.5 × 1016 in total – around 70 per cent more per day.

"This is not surprising," says Wotawa. "When the fuel is damaged there is no reason for the volatile elements not to escape," and the measured caesium and iodine are in the right ratios for the fuel used by the Fukushima Daiichi reactors. Also, the Fukushima plant has around 1760 tonnes of fresh and used nuclear fuel on site, and an unknown amount has been damaged. The Chernobyl reactor had only 180 tonnes.

The amounts being released, he says, are "entirely consistent" with the relatively low amounts of caesium and iodine being measured in soil, plants and water in Japan, because so much has blown out to sea. The amounts crossing the Pacific to places like Sacramento are vanishingly small – they were detected there because the CTBT network is designed to sniff out the tiniest traces.

The Chernobyl accident emitted much more radioactivity and a wider diversity of radioactive elements than Fukushima Daiichi has so far, but it was iodine and caesium that caused most of the health risk – especially outside the immediate area of the Chernobyl plant, says Malcolm Crick, secretary of a United Nations body that has just reviewed the health effects of Chernobyl. Unlike other elements, he says, they were carried far and wide by the wind.

Moreover the human body absorbs iodine and caesium readily. "Essentially all the iodine or caesium inhaled or swallowed crosses into the blood," says Keith Baverstock, former head of radiation protection for the World Health Organization's European office, who has studied Chernobyl's health effects.

Iodine is rapidly absorbed by the thyroid, and leaves only as it decays radioactively, with a half-life of eight days. Caesium is absorbed by muscles, where its half-life of 30 years means that it remains until it is excreted by the body. It takes between 10 and 100 days to excrete half of what has been consumed.

While in the body the isotopes' radioactive emissions can do significant damage, mainly to DNA. Children who ingest iodine-131 can develop thyroid cancer 10 or more years later; adults seem relatively resistant. A study published in the US last week found that iodine-131 from Chernobyl is still causing new cases of thyroid cancer to appear at an undiminished rate in the most heavily affected regions of Ukraine, Belarus and Russia.

Caesium-137 lingers in the environment because of its long half-life. Researchers are divided over how much damage environmental exposure to low doses has done since Chernobyl. Some researchers think it could still cause thousands of new cases of cancer across Europe. - New Scientist


Wonder cure sparks rush to Tanzanian village

standardmedia - The multitudes crossing river Engaresero in northern Tanzania is akin to the annual wildebeest migration at River Mara. The only difference is that the people in their thousands have no time to hang around the banks, waiting for the courageous one to cross over first because each second is precious.

Not even the bursting bank of the river that has swept several vehicles is a cause to worry.

And the mad rush is about a potent brew that has baffled science and yet said to cure all ailments, being dispensed by Ambilikile Masapile, 76, who is a retired pastor Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania.

People used whatever means necessary to and even drove across a swelling river to get to Loliondo village for a ‘dose’ of medicine.

The news of the supposed power of his brew has spread like wild bush fire and captured the imagination of Tanzanian and the rest of East Africa.

When we arrived at Dar es Salaam, the talk was all about ‘Loliondo wonder’. Despite a power blackout the last two weeks, nobody talks of the energy crisis. It is all about Loliondo wonder.

"Ushasikia bwana, hakuna maradhi yasiyotibiwa. Loliondo twaenda," this is the message in the streets as people prepare to travel north to the remote village of Samunge where Masapile serves the concoction.

Though the sojourn to the north started in the last two months, the past two weeks has seen unprecedented pilgrimage to the home of Masapile.

The journey is torturous as one navigates the rocky terrain of Sonjo plains to Ngorongoro where there is neither a mobile telephone network nor radio signals.

But this has not deterred thousands of people from all over the country from flocking the humble homestead of the soft-spoken old man with grey hair and bald patches. Getting to his homestead is not an easy task.

When we get there, there are two long queues leading to Masapile’s homestead stretching up to 20km and keep growing as more sick people arrive. There are over 2,000 vehicles with sick people while the rich fly in using choppers. The vehicles are in two files –– those from Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Dar-es-salaam and Nairobi and the other for the ones from the Lake Victoria regions –– Mwanza, Mara and Shinyanga.

Among the sick are people with terminal diseases, HIV/Aids and mental diseases while some go to partake the concoction to prevent illnesses.

Masapile’s treatment is puzzling given that the main ingredient of the wonder medicine is the highly poisonous arrow tree locally known as Mugariga.

The Sonjo tribe, which live in the Loliondo plains, use the sap from the tree to make poisoned arrows that kill in seconds.

The white liquid on the bark of the tree is said to be fatal when it comes into contact with blood and paralyses the respiratory system. Birds drop dead on sucking nectar from the flowers. Hunters in South America, Africa and Asia use the lethal weapons. It is the plant used to make arrow poison in traditional societies of Mara, Arusha and Singida.

So how did Masapile come up with the concoctions that have captured the imagination of the world? "In 1991, I had a dream which directed me to start using some herbal concoctions to treat my arthritis and cure other people’s chronic ailments," he says after taking a small break from serving the pale brownish liquid mixture in buckets in rusty cups that are distributed to the patients by his assistants.

"It was a directive from God Himself. In the dream, I saw a woman who looked very ill and a voice told me to treat her using the herbal mixture which by then had proven to be quite an effective remedy in treating my own ailments," he says.

He, however, says it was not until in 2009, yet another apparition of the sick woman in a recurrent dream prompted him to take action, rolling out a large cauldron and proceeding to brew what has now become a huge national phenomenon.

"It is God who has shown me how to do it and if anyone questions, they can see for themselves that it works. All those who have come here have been healed," he says.

But does the ‘magical’ brew work? One of the ‘patients’ John Mbavai says he and his wife were suffering from acute diabetic conditions but after taking the magical drink, their blood sugar normalised.

"This is our third week and our blood sugar is normal and we even went for medical check ups to prove it. We are healed," says Mbavai.

He adds that other ailments such as insomnia, fatigue and periodical fevers that used to torment him have also disappeared.

Joshua Thedeus from Kijenge claims his cousin has been healed of HIV infection after taking the brew.

"My cousin was diagnosed with HIV last year and he was among the first people to take Pastor Masapile’s magical mix last October. He then summoned up courage and went for HIV tests, guess what? He was found negative," he says.

He adds: "He used to look sick worn out and tired but now he has regained his health and he is not alone, I know lots of people who keep testifying that they have been healed by the Loliondo brew. I have not drank it, but there is no doubt that it can cure all deadly human ailments, that is a fact."

Among those who visited Masapile during our tour is former Prime Minister Edward Lowassa, his predecessor, Frederick Sumaye and Opposition Party leader Augustine Mrema, who openly smiled at the TV camera as they gulped Masapile’s concoction.

Masapile’s concoction seems to be winning the approval of even the church. The head of the Northern and Central Diocese of the Lutheran Church, Bishop Thomas Laizer maintained that a number of church officials got healed from their ailments but did not mention what type of diseases.

The Arusha Regional Medical Officer Dr Salash Toure said though Masapile has been issuing his magical cure since August 2010, there has been no case of someone with HIV turning up at any of the region’s health centres wanting to test whether they have been cured.

"It is difficult to prove now if the brew is potent because no patient who has gone there returns for a test. However, there was one case of a diabetic patient whom we tested after visiting the healer and was cured, but that is just one case," he says.

A mug costs only TSh500, which is cheap by any standard and according to Masapile, it is meant to be affordable for all and to cure everyone irrespective of financial status.

"God wants everybody to get cured regardless of their financial status," he explains.

He says he will donate the proceeds to the church and use others to pay his assistants. And like the Biblical Prophet Elisha, he refuses all types of gifts and advises the modern day ‘Naamans’ to take their presents to needy persons once they get back to their homes.

"I know you have come with various forms of gifts. Thank you, please give them to needy persons when you get back to your homes," he tells the crowd milling around his mud-walled house.

The drink may be cheap but getting to the remote Sonjo plains can cost one an arm and leg. Motorists have also been enjoying the windfall, charging desperate ‘miracle seekers’ an average of about TSh150,000 (Sh9,000) to take them to Loliondo. The ‘healer’ continues to live in his mud hut at the back of which firewood stoves, boil the barks and roots of the ‘Mugariga’ tree from which a pale brownish liquid is derived. It is not the testimonies from the ‘healed’ people that puzzle us but the fact that they consume highly poisonous tree with no intoxicating effect whatsoever.


Speculation that new-found books could impact Christianity

file22 - (excuse the translation - I searched for a better version without luck) - In a cave in Jordan found more than 70 ancient books that are about 2000 years, and is believed to make their contents could change the current way of understanding Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, and the manner in which Christianity has developed at all.

Books are the BBC, found in a remote cave in the northern part of Jordan, somewhere between the 2005th and 2007 year. According to one theory, all the ‘wrong’ after the floods, which were discovered in a cave two niches of which was engraved on a candlestick, an ancient symbol of the Jews. The book has found a Bedouin, a Jordanian government claims that they were smuggled into the country second Bedouin. But the Bedouin, who is currently in their possession to deny them of smuggling and says that in his family for 100 years.

Director of the Department of Antiquities in Jordan, Ziad al-Saad thinks the book might be written by Christ’s followers for several decades after the crucifixion. This is a document that could establish that they are much more important than the roll with the Black Sea. Initial information on the contents are very encouraging and we are the great discoveries, perhaps the most important in the history of archeology, said al-Saad.

Most of the encrypted books were originally carved into the lead and site were associated with lead rings. Results are the size of a credit card, the text is written in ancient Hebrew, and most of the ciphertext. The importance of the discovery is even greater if it is indeed the origin of Christianity, not Judaism. One of the few who saw the live book is ancient archeology professor who leads the British team in an effort to situate the book in the safety of Jordan’s Museum, David Elkington.

This could be the biggest discovery in the history of Christianity and the breathtaking fact that you have a hand held object that was once upon a time held a saint, said Elkington, who believes that the book really talks about the early beginnings of Christianity due to the image on the cover and the contents of the first few page. In fact, figures show the person who is supposed to be Jesus in the presence of God.

On the cover of a book appears sedmerokraki candlestick menorah, a symbol of Judaism, which in those days was allowed to run because it only allowed to reside in the temples in the presence of God. Due to this fact Elkington believes that the book describes the return of the Messiah. That the book is indeed associated with the Bible speaks the translation of a piece of content where the display menoraha says ‘I’ll walk the sublime’, a sentence that appears in the book of Genesis. Anyway, time will tell what really works, but whatever the outcome, really it’s one great discovery from the time of early Christianity.

About Philip: Philip J. Imbrogno is a science educator and a leading expert on ufology and the stone chambers of New York. With Dr. J. Allen Hynek and Bob Pratt, he co-authored the best-selling Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings (Ballantine Books, 1986), still in print (Llewellyn). His book Interdimensional Universe: The New Science of UFOs, Paranormal Phenomena and Otherdimensional Beings (Llewellyn) has remained on the list of top 25 best-selling UFO books since its publication in July 2008. He is also the author of Files From the Edge (2010) and Ultraterrestrial Contact: A Paranormal Investigator’s Explorations into the Hidden Abduction Expidemic (2010), both from Llewellyn. In addition, he has written hundreds of articles. Imbrogno’s original research of the stone chambers in upstate New York showed that the chambers were not colonial root cellars, but possibly of Druid origin. As a result, the state of New York changed its tourist literature on the stone chambers and on Balanced Rock, a boulder resting on several smaller stones. Imbrogno’s research is documented in Celtic Mysteries: Windows to Another Dimension in America’s Northeast (formerly Celtic Mysteries in New England), co-authored with Marianne Horrigan, republished by Llewellyn in 2000.

He lectures and makes numerous media appearances on television and radio. His media appearances include high-profile television programs such as Oprah, Geraldo, and Regis and Kathy Live; network news shows such as Dateline NBC; major TV and cable networks, including Fox, PBS, the History Channel and HBO, and numerous radio programs, including Coast to Coast AM, the largest syndicated night-time talk show.

He has written articles for science and general interest publications, and writes an astronomy column for 13 Connecticut newspapers.

Justin Hyte

ONE: No room for less than intoxicating fantasies.
 If you really are a fashion heroine/hero you will not be afraid of dreaming. As Da Vinci said once eyes see more clearly in dreams than imagination when awake.

Primeira: Não há espaço para nada menos que fantasias intoxicantes.
Se realmente és um(a) fashion Heroine/heroe não podes ter medo de sonhar. Como uma vez da Vinci disse os olhos vêm mais claramente em sonhos que a imaginação acordada.

Madame Grès' dress
TWO: Be super smart against people who believe themselves superior because if they feel so they certainly will be mindless or in current language donkeys.

Segunda: Sê super inteligente contra aqueles que se julgam superiores porque se eles se sentem assim é porque certamente são fracos de mente ou em linguagem corriqueira: Burros.
Divva Zappa

THREE: Do not have afraid of the slaves of commonplaces, they should have certain virtues but they are above all slaves of security that is a thing doesn’t exist, security is an Utopia, a non-place invented by breakable people to feel better before their unbreakable brothers.

Terceira:  Não tenhas receio dos escravos do lugar comum, certamente eles terão muitas virtudes, mas, são sobretudo escravos da segurança. Mas, a segurança não existe, a segurança é uma utopia, um não-lugar inventado por pessoas que quebram facilmente para se sentirem melhores perante os seus irmãos inquebráveis.

Alexander McQueen fashion show (2000) 
FOUR: Be daring not in your imagination, not only in your outfits, not only in your likeness… be daring in your purposes and integrity, be different in your goals and wishes, be a cloud floating into the blue in a sunny day, you will upset ordinary people who can’t see the beauty of a cloud and its potential but you will get the power of being you 

Quarta: Sê atrevida (o) mas não só na tua imaginação, não só nas roupas que usas, não só na aparência... Sê atrevida (o) nos teus propósitos e integridade, sê diferente nos teus objectivos e desejos, sê uma nuvem flutuando no azul num dia de sol, poderás aborrecer os vulgares de espírito que não conseguem ver a beleza de uma nuvem solitária e o seu potencial mas obterás o poder de seres tu. 

Miles Aldrige
 FIVE: If you play always for safeness you will lose the vision behind the obvious and you will miss the eternal perfume when the rose died.

Quinta: Se jogares sempre pelo seguro perderás a visão por detrás do óbvio e perderás o perfume eterno quando a rosa morrer.

Nick Knight
SIX: Be adventurous, life is hard but too much sugar can get you sick. Drama make you more sensitive and wonderful human.

Sexta: Sê aventureira (o), a vida é dura mas demasiado açúcar deixar-te-à enjoada (o). O drama tornar-te mais sensitiva (o) e um humano maravilhoso. 

Quentin Wispelaere
 SEVEN: Deadly sins are dead! Sinless doesn't exist.  

Sétima: Os pecados mortais estão mortos.

Logan White

EIGHT: Make a print of your life and if you don’t like enough the picture to hang on the wall of your favorite room, change it now!

Oitava: faz uma inpressão da tua vida e se não gostares do quadro o suficiente para o pendurares na parede do teu quarto preferido, muda a tua vida!

Gregoire Alexander
NINE: To change is not enough to think about it, you need to do it. So begin to read this and when you will finish change really something in your actions or you will become pretty superstitious to change anything. One day… is a non-day, do you know?

Nona: Para mudar não basta pensar nisso, é preciso faze-lo. Começa por ler isto e quando acabares muda a realidade de alguma coisa ou tornar-te-às supersticioso e nunca mudarás nada. Um dia... é um não-dia, sabias?

Cate Blanchett by Irving Penn
 TEN: Be impractical when everyone and everything must be a function: From now you will have a mission not a duty! Buy these impractical shoes; wear that impractical backless knitwear; write impractical rules and never mind if they are NOT practicable; Do impractical things to prove to you that the impossible is nothing!

Décima: Sê impraticável quando todos e tudo têm que ter uma função: A partir de agora terás uma missão não deveres. Compra esses sapatos não práticos; veste aquela canisola de malha sem costas; escreve regras impraticáveis e não te preocupes se elas não forem realizáveis; faz coisas impraticáveis para provares a ti próprio que o impossível é nada! 

Pierre Verdy
  ELEVEN: Be honest and never make a copy paste of someone (famous or not). Icons should inspire you not make you lie about yourself. If a fashion (or cultural) icon doesn’t inspire you to make a better version of himself than he will be a false icon that’s for sure.

Décima-primeira: Sê honesta (o) e nunca faças copy paste de ninguém (famoso ou não). Os icons devem inspirar-te não fazerem de ti uma mentira. Se um icon não te inspirar a fazer uma versão melhor de si próprio então será um falso idolo.
Felix Partz
 TWELVE: Be hot in everything you do because more than what is HOW do you do the big thing in life. Most of the time you can’t choose what but almost always you can choose HOW to do it! Your own style is revealing how do you do things and not in what do you do.

Décima-segunda: Sê sexy em tudo o que fizeres porque masi do que o quê o como é que importa na vida. A maior parte das vezes não podes escolher o que é que fazes mas quase sempre podes escolher como o fazes. É na maneira como fazes as coisas que revelas o teu estilo.  

Steven Meisel

THIRTEEN: Be hopeful, if you haven’t why got on your imagination. Life without hope and drama is an insane non-purpose life. Drama is necessary for the needing of hope and hope is needed to get drama alive. 

Décima-terceira: Tem esperança, se não tiveres por que ter esperança usa a tua imaginação e inventa motivos. A vida sem esperança e drama é uma vida insana e sem propósito. O drama é necessário para a necessidade de esperança e a esperança é precisa para manter o drama vivo.

Quentin Wispeleare

FOURTEEN: If you are a great actress on stage, you fake emotions too well; In life it’s pretty equal:
Life is the best stage, so don’t be afraid to get emotional , you get a good reputation of being cold and rational but you will lose the lightness of tears and the beauty after the rain stops. 

Décima-quarta: Se no palco és uma excelente actriz é porque finges bem as emoções; Na vida é semelhante: A vida é o melhor palco pelo que não tenhas receio de ser emotiva. Podes ganhar uma óptima reputação por seres fria e racional, mas, assim perderás a leveza das lágrimas e a luz após um dia de chuva.  

Richard Burbridge
FIFTEEN: Be a child but a damn innocent  child... and pray God to make you good ... but not yet!

décima-quinta:  Sé criança, mas uma criança danada e inocente.. e reza a Deus para te fazer boa... mas que não seja para já.                                                                  

Jacqueline Roberts

SIXTEEN:  Be a glamorous exquisite alternative to youself and celebrate the wild at heart.

Décima-sexta:  Sê uma versão glamourosa, requintada e alternativa de ti própria (o) e celebra os selvagens de coração.
