The Hopi Elders of Shungopovi and Polacca Villages are speaking out to ask for help in STOPPING Senate Bill SB2109 that will strip the Hopi Nation of its aboriginal water rights, casting a dark shadow on their future.

Please listen and spread the word before it is too late.

Write your US Senator to stop SB2109


Around the world there are ‘people of the earth’ who still respect the natural world who are working to protect her and honor the energies of all life. We are asking for your assistance to stop senate bill 2109 by writing a letter to your Senate and Congress representatives.

Stop privatization of water, the right to life. Stop corporate ownership of water, the right to life. We need to respect and protect our water, rivers, lakes and groundwaters for future generations.

Now is the time for change to protect one of the worlds most valuable elements, water, an element that all life on earth needs to survive.

Being caretakers of the elements for thousands of years the Indigenous people understand that water is not a commodity to be bought, sold, polluted and destroyed for monetary gain.

Water is to be respected and honored as one of the elements of life itself.

Stop Privatization of water. Get involved, educate yourself to this issue in your area of the world and use your voice to support life.

Stopping Senate Bill 2109 will be one step in sending a message around the world that the people of earth want a future for our children and all life.

CIA’s Most Secret Prison Surfaces in Romania

One of CIA’s secret prisons was probably located in the capital of Romania, Bucharest. Reporters of two Western media companies visited the European country, to take a look at the place, where the CIA could keep its Afghan POWs.

The subject of CIA’s secret prisons has surfaced again after an anonymous agent of US special services unveiled information about the existence of the prison code-named “Bright Light.” According to him, US special services would keep prominent al-Qaeda members in the “romantic” prison. Sheikh Mohammad, a suspect of 9/11 attacks in the USA, was also kept at the Romanian prison, the officer said on conditions of anonymity.

The former intelligence official also said that the prison had supposedly started working in the autumn of 2003. It happened after the CIA decided to relocate its prisoners to Romania from a secret object in Poland. The Romanian prison operated for three years. In 2006, all the prisoners were delivered to the notorious Guantanamo base.

According to the agent, the secret prison was inside the National Registry for Classified Information in Romania. The registry receives all the data from NATO and the European Union. The crews of the Associated Press news agency and Germany’s ARD Panorama TV company managed to visit the secret object.

Adrian Camarasan, an employee of the registry, said that the Americans had never been the masters in the prison. The location for the prison was perfect, the officer said. Local residents knew that there was a state-run institution in the building. However, it could never occur to anyone how they used the basement of the respectable building.

According to the Romanian official, there were six cells in the secret prison. The prisoners were tortured there for about a month. Afterwards, the attitude to the prisoners began to improve. Doctors would often examine them, whereas the food for the prisoners would be cooked according to Islamic requirements.

The story raises many questions to both the United States and Romania. The subject of CIA secret prisons appeared in 2004-2005, after the report from Swiss deputy Dick Marti. An article on the subject in The Washington Post followed soon afterwards. The Observer provided the list of the countries, where the CIA had its secret prisons. The geography of that was astonishing indeed: Morocco, Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Ukraine, Lithuania, Poland and Romania. The suspects would be tortured with the imitation of drowning, cold, loud music, pork (which all Muslims reject), sleep deprivation, etc. Human rights activists showered then-President George W. Bush with criticism, but US officials, including former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, rejected all of those claims.

The USA eventually acknowledged the existence of secret prisons. However, US officials did their best to justify the use of severe methods of interrogation. According to them, it was the only language that terrorist suspects could understand.

The US reputation was stained. Barack Obama ordered to close all secret prisoners as soon as he took office as President. Attorney General Eric Holder said that the activities of the CIA would be investigated. However, the investigation moves at snail’s pace.

One may have many questions to the countries that agreed to provide their territories and premises for the secret prisons. Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite admitted two years ago that the CIA had a secret prison not far from Vilnius in 2003-2004. Lithuanian ex-President Valdas Adamkus was aware of all that, of course, but he simply got away with it.

A similar scandal has begun in Poland as well. Tomas Hammarberg, the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, stated that there was a secret object in Poland in 2002-2003 too. According to the official, two extremely important prisoners – Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and Abu Zubaidah – were kept at the secret prison in Poland. Neither Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, nor Prime Minister Donald Tusk have said a word on the subject yet.

It appears that it is now the turn for Romanian President Traian Basescu to explain the presence of CIA prisons in his country. He came to power in 2004. It was in his power to close the prison, but Basescu did not do it. The above-mentioned employee of the Romanian Registry for Classified Information said that the Romanian administration was aware of that all. It just so happens that European countries can turn a blind eye on their sovereignty to please the USA. Does that mean that Romania, Poland, Lithuania and many other “sovereign” countries are not quite independent?

Wow! New Microsoft Sensor Gadget turns walls, cars and even your hand into a touchscreen

Microsoft researchers have developed a new generation of Kinect motion sensor – a device that turns any flat surface into a touch screen.

Experimental sensor tracks movement on any of the human hand in the wall and it makes a portable computer.

Tests, users are able to punch numbers onto their hands and the keyboard to write a virtual “notepad” on the table.

According to researchers, it is the first step in a single day by removing the need to carry around your phone or computer.

Instead, users can have what they need, projected in front of him, and use any of the flat workspace.

The device, called the OmniTouch, a wearable camera / laser projection system installed on the user’s shoulder and connected to the computer.

It works the same way as the Kinect, motion sensor gadget to your Xbox, as the camera detects motion and depth.

Pilot: The prototype shoulder-worn system, pictured, tracks the movement of the user

Thus it is to pick up when the user moves their finger in any direction or up and down.

Striking videos uploaded onto YouTube to see a variety of subjects by pressing the buttons are projected to the arm.

Other clips show a man with a numeric keypad on his hand, which he transferred to the combination.

Applications can be anything that we currently use a computer – checking email, surfing the web, or possibly by talking to friends on Skype.

At the moment the camera and laser are quite thick, but Microsoft and the team at Carnegie Mellon University, which was developed in conjunction with OmniTouch, say it could one day be “the whole of a matchbox and as easy to use as pendant or watch.”

Science: The equipment senses depth and hand movement to work

In a research paper they say OmniTouch “allows the user to use his hands, arms and legs as a graphical, interactive surfaces.”

They write: “Today’s notebook computers offer ubiquitous access to information … It is undeniable that they have forever changed the way we work, play and interact.

“However, mobile interaction is far from resolved. Small screens and buttons on November the user experience, and otherwise keep us all full potential.

Hrvoje Benko, a researcher of the natural interaction of the Microsoft research team, added: “We wanted to take advantage of a huge surface of the real world has to offer.

“The surface on the one hand alone larger than typical smartphones.

“The tables are an order of magnitude larger than the tablet computer.

“If we are right, these surfaces in an ad-hoc on-demand way to deliver full benefits of mobility, while extending the user’s interactive feature.”

“Doomsday” Comet Elenin On its Closest Approach To Earth (video)

The icy comet, described as about “Doomsday Comet”, makes its closest approach to Earth on Sunday (October 16, 2011).

Elenin, last comet to visit the inner solar system, will pass about 22 million kilometers (35000000 km) from Earth, more than 90 times the distance to the moon.

Comet Elenin named Russian amateur astronomer Leonid Elenin, who discovered it in December 2010.

Astronomers and other space enthusiasts have long pondered the question of whether Elenin could hit the ground or to conquer the Earth away from the polarity of the sun. In fact, sites dedicated to the comet has been established, the internet forums are full of proposals that NASA has not adequately address the potential risk posed by “icy dirtball”, as it is described in the Space Agency.

NASA scientists have, however, for the comet as “wimpy” compared to the Hale-Bopp (pictured above left), who flashed across our skies in 1997.

Astronomer Don Yeomans near-Earth Object program office is NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, is said to have been erroneous speculation on the Internet that the comet Elenin Still other celestial bodies, may have an impact on the Earth and the external forces can lead to Elenin Making closer to the Earth.

“Everyone around the comet Elenin Still other celestial bodies, are insignificant, and the comet did not encounter a dark bodies, which may confuse its orbit, nor does it affect us in any way on this earth,” said Yeomans.

“Comet Elenin is not only far away, it is also on the small side for comets,” Yeomans said. “And comets are the most densely packed objects out there. They usually have a density as loosely packed icy dirt.”

Comet images captured by amateur astronomer Elenin, Michael Mattiazzo South Comets (video below), for several days in August 2011 showed what appeared to be the core without breaking apart and fading away as it approaches perihelion, point in its orbit, where it is closest to the sun. NASA says the most likely Elenin is now powered by comet debris and intact.

mysterious star discovered in Constellation Leo Perplex Scientists

mysterious star discovered in Constellation Leo Perplex Scientists

Astrophysicists in Germany, France and Italy have found a very old star of the constellation Leo, whose existence is a complete mystery to them. SDSS J102915 172 927, unlike the other stars “of the same age,” which appeared soon after the Big Bang, has a smaller mass, which does not fit into the modern theory of star formation mechanisms.

Age of the star SDSS J102915 172 927, which is located just to the edge of the solar system, the researchers have more than 13 billion years, while the age of the universe itself is only somewhere around 13.75 billion years. Weight of the newly discovered star is less than 0.8 solar masses. Stars that have formed the eve of the universe as a rule contain little or no heavy metals.

It is believed that in that distant era, 75 percent of the material universe was hydrogen, 25 per cent – helium, and a very small amount of lithium. Stars have higher metal concentrations are the products of a thermonuclear bomb reactions and supernova explosions. Low-mass stars in the universe began to occur after heavy elements cooled clouds of interstellar matter up to the point where gravity starts to exceed the pressure of the hot gas cloud collapse and star.

Analysis of the data the Very Large Telescope (VLT) through the X-shooter spectrograph UVES, and showed that some of the heavy elements in the star SDSS J102915 172 927 is about 20,000 times smaller than the sun. According to one study participants, Perkarlo Bonifacio Paris Observatory, the newly discovered star is relatively dim, and the researchers have not been able to identify the elements heavier than helium is its composition. “The first spectra of this faint star, we found traces of only one” heavy “element, calcium,” he said. “Finding other metals, we had to significantly expand the program’s findings.”

Star contains forty times less than the Lithia this should in theory be the target. For Lithia break, the substance was a warm up to temperatures of more than two million degrees Kelvin. “We had to spend the extra time for the telescope to study stars in more detail,” said Bonifacio.

The researchers drew attention to the limited amount of carbon and oxygen to promote cooling protostellar clouds and create the necessary conditions for the formation of Low-mass stars: it was well below the threshold. So, on the other hand, the older the star, the more its configuration must match the configuration of the universe the early stages of evolution, after all consisted exclusively of light elements, and its weight is greater. However, SDSS J102915 172 927 does not confirm this rule. It has a low concentration of the metal, and at the same time is a small mass.

“The standard theory interprets the corresponding low-mass stars and low metal content should not be, because the cloud point on which they appear does not shrink,” says Elisabetta Kaffal European Southern Observatory (ESO). “We did not expect to find a star in the” forbidden zone. “This means that we may have to revise some of the models of star formation mechanisms.”

This means either that the astronomers were wrong age of the star, or it formed later (after all, its age was defined on the basis of “Metal City”), or its formation is not according to the “Classic” scenario. Finally, it is a theory that the Big Bang have been some of the unique event, and such explosions occur from time to time. So, SDSS J102915 172 927 could not be there, for example, before the Big Bang. At least, that gave birth to most of the objects in the universe. Then everything is explained – so it is lightweight and low metals.

However, according to astrophysicists, SDSS J102915 172 927 is not yet unique, they were able to calculate a few “primitive” stars of low metal city. “Now we will examine the VLT, to check whether they are” primitive, “said Dr. Kaffal.

Homeland Security discover new terrorist threat that could devastate the Southwest of US


A senior staffer at Homeland Security revealed that a threat to the Southwest region of the US is
imminent in the next few months.

The threat is one that happens every year, forest fires.
High heat and no rain make millions of rural and suburban area susceptible to bush fires.
The devastation to the economy, infrastructure and loss of property are severe.

In a cell that was discovered near Portland Oregon of “persons of a undisclosed nationality” plans were drawn up to set multiple fires in forest from California to Colorado.
The plan called for using self igniting fire bombs that could be remotely detonated by radio frequency.
These networks of fires were coordinated to maximize wind patterns, counties with limited fire fighting resources and response time and current fire risk.

The result would be the largest loss of land and fire that the world has ever seen.
To defend against this threat is virtually impossible. The consequences would loss of life and
cloud of smoke over America.

Officials advise to aware of any suspicious activity in the next few months. You can make a difference.


Iran Plans to Send Monkey into Space as Test for Manned Flights


Head of Iranian Space Agency (ISA) Hamid Fazeli says the country plans to send a live monkey in space aboard the country’s domestically produced Kavoshgar 5 (Explorer 5) planet carrier.

“Kavoshgar 5 kg with a weight of 285 will blast into space with an animal (a monkey) in the next Iranian calendar month (starting on 23 July),” IRNA quoted the words Fazeli on Monday.

He further explained that Kavoshgar built 5 a structural similar to the Omid (Hope) satellite, Iran first domestically produced satellite, which has launched into orbit in 2009 to life.

The Omid satellite data processing is designed to orbit the Earth 15 times per day and the data transmitted over two frequency bands and eight antennas to an Iranian space station.

Fazeli also pointed out, provides that five monkeys, experiments are currently getting for launch. The monkeys take exercises “to resist physical and orbital pressure, acceleration, sound [boom], vibration and other elements in the lift-off.” To

The ISA head noted that certain changes were made in the subsystem of the Kavoshgar 5 rocket made and said it must use liquid fuel, since it has been modified to accelerate, more than its previous prototypes.

On 20 June, said the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran has obtained the technology to develop different satellites and will soon be huge satellites in circular orbits at an altitude of nearly 35,000 kilometers (21,748 miles) above Earth’s surface taken.

The space capsule designed to carry the living creatures was introduced in February by President Ahmadinejad.

In February, the Iranian chief Kavoshgar 4 (IE 4) and three other national satellite Fajr (Dawn), Rasad (observation), Amirkabir I, Zafar (Victory) and the Kavoshgar 4 (IE 4) reveals planet carrier.

On 17 March, Iran successfully its first domestically produced bio-capsule “preservation of life ‘through the production of oxygen by the use of dry ice in the space of four Kavoshgar satellite carrier.

Fazeli had earlier said that Kavoshgar first mission was designed to evaluate the performance of the Space Explorer, the systems and subsystems together with the launch ramp, lift mechanism and the bio-capsule.

Iran is one of 24 founding members of the United Nations’ Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, which was founded by in 1959.

Tehran also plans the nation’s first manned mission to space station 2019th


Could a Parallel world be hidden inside Earth?


In many ways, scientists find more and more evidence to prove the existence of new dimensions and parallel worlds. Physicists at Stanford University managed to calculate the hypothetical number of universes that were formed as a result of the Big Bang. According to them, the Big Bang created 101016 universes. It is quite possible, though, that they may exist inside one another, including our planet. Therefore, there is probably another Earth hidden inside planet Earth.

The hollow Earth theory can be traced back to ancient periods of the history of human civilization. Ancient wise men believed that there was a whole underground world with its underground creatures living inside the planet. It may seem to many that it is only a primeval and naïve perception of the structure of the world.

In Ancient Greece, there was a myth about Tartar – the ominous underground world. Philosopher Anaxagoras (5th century A.D) built a model of creation made of the flat earth surrounded by the air sphere and the cloud of ether. He wrote about the existence of the parallel world with its people, cities and even celestial bodies. If planet Earth is the center of the universe, where do these people live? Do they live under the ground?

Hypotheses about the existence of hollow space inside planet Earth appeared later as well. The theory was put forward by Galilei, Franklin and Lichtenberg among others.

In 1818, John Cleves Symmes showered the US Congress, universities and prominent scientists with messages, in which he was trying to prove that the Earth was made of several concentric spheres with openings near the poles.

Soviet academician V. Obruchev put forward a hypothesis about a giant meteorite that rammed into Earth in primeval times. According to him, the meteorite may have broken through the planet’s crust and created hollowness inside.

US researcher Cyrus Teed said that the surface of the Earth might be the interior shell of a sphere. The theory became known as “concave hollow Earth” hypothesis. According to this theory, we all live on the inner shell of the Earth.

Let’s just assume that the underground world exists and that there is someone living there in that world. What may those creatures look like? Can they be the mysterious monsters, the existence or non-existence of which has been perplexing mankind for centuries?


Switzerland Labratory Creates and Stores Antimatter Atoms for 17 Minutes (video)


Some 309 antihydrogen atoms have been created by ALPHA Collaboration in Switzerland and stored in a magnified cylinder up to about 17 minutes for the first time in the history of science.

The Geneva-based international team of scientists working in CERN announced on Tuesday that storing the antimatter atoms up to 1000 seconds (nearly 17 minutes) is a great step forward because it gives a chance to the scientists to study them much further; whereas, the 38 atoms having been captured in 2010 could be held only for a sixth of a second, the state-run BBC reported.

Prof Jeffrey Hangst, ALPHA spokesperson, says, “Anti-matter catches on because it’s real… Half the universe has gone missing.”

“This would be a modest first step towards actually understanding antimatter.”

In a televised interview, CERN director-general Rolf-Dieter Heuer said on Tuesday, “We see its reactions, so we know antimatter exists. At the moment of the Big Bang, matter and antimatter existed in equal measures. Then one part in 10 billion was created, which is us, i.e. the material world. The target of basic science is to find more knowledge about the source of the universe.

“Antimatter was discovered 80 years ago, and you see it used now in some medical device called PET in hospitals to diagnose cancer, for example. But we don’t know exactly what this new scientific advancement can lead us to in the future.”

A January 2011 research by the American Astronomical Society has discovered antimatter originating above thunderstorm clouds. This is the first time antimatter has been observed occurring naturally on Earth.

Antiparticles are also produced in any environment with a sufficiently high temperature.

Scientists claim antimatter is the costliest material to make. In 2006, Gerald Smith estimated USD-250 million could produce 10 milligrams of positrons (equivalent to USD-25 billion per gram). This is because production is difficult.

Several NASA Institute for Advanced Concepts-funded studies are exploring whether it might be possible to use magnetic scoops to collect the antimatter that occurs naturally in the Van Allen belt of the Earth, and ultimately, the belts of gas giants like Jupiter, hopefully at a lower cost per gram.

The scarcity of antimatter means it is not readily available to be used as fuel, although it could be used in antimatter catalyzed nuclear pulse propulsion for space applications.

The reaction of 1 kg of antimatter with 1 kg of matter would produce 1.8×1017 J of energy (by the mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc²), or the rough equivalent of 43 megatons of TNT. This is slightly less than the Tsar Bomb, the largest nuclear weapon ever detonated.

Due to high energy inherent in antimatter, it may have military applications either as an explosive or in boosting of nuclear fusion weapons.

Heuer says, “It’s a very important breakthrough because it is the first step toward understanding why we are here.”


E. coli outbreak identified by government officials as potential bioterrorism (Video)


Is the E. coli outbreak that has killed at least 22 people, sickened more than 2,200, and caused widespread fear throughout Europe a case of a bad turn by Mother Nature or the result of a more sinister attack?

After all, E. coli has been identified by government officials and scientists as a potential bioterrorism agent.

Bioterrorism is defined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as the intentional use of bacteria, viruses or natural toxins as a weapon to kill, injure or produce disease in people, animals or plants. Terrorists may use this kind of attack to create fear, disrupt the economy, or to get a response from the government.

Let me clarify that I don’t think there’s a need for alarm just yet, but there are a couple of things that are unique about this particular strain, compared to E. coli we’ve seen in the past.
I talked to my colleague, Dr. Philip Tierno – aka “Dr. Germ” – to find out a little more about this killer.

“This strain (0104:H4) is a hyper-toxin producer, which means it produces more toxins than the usual strain, and causes hemolytic uremic syndrome (a complication of an E. coli infection that can lead to kidney failure) at approximately double the rate of the E. coli 0157:H7 strain that we commonly see here in the United States,” he told me over the phone.

It appears to have genes that lead to both bloody diarrhea and kidney failure, as well as resistance to 14 kinds of antibiotics instead of just one. It also lacks an adhesion gene, which means the bug may have found a new way to bind itself inside the body.

In his 42 years at the department of microbiology at NYU School of Medicine, Tierno said he has never seen the 0104:H4 strain – not once – ever.

“The toxin is carried by what is called a bacteriophage (viruses that infect bacteria), and could migrate from strain to strain – that’s why it’s so powerful,” he said.


What I find most curious is the target of this strain – statistics show that an unusually high number of adult women have fallen victim to the bug. Normally, E. coli often affects children and the elderly.

Now, there are a number of potential explanations for this outbreak, which biologists say may be the largest and deadliest in all of history. At this point, it’s impossible to pin the cause down on any one theory.

Tierno said in his opinion, it’s not a bioterrorism incident, but he also said nothing can be 100 percent ruled out.

However, I do believe it is important to consider all possibilities, and perhaps view what has happened in Europe as a warning: E. coli is a potentially deadly pathogen that can spread rapidly and widely, whether in the hands of terrorists or Mother Nature. It is vitally important to practice proper techniques in food preparation – including washing the food and/or cooking it at proper temperatures.

As far as I’m concerned, the few extra minutes those measures will take is well worth it to ensure the health and safety of you and your family.
