Marley knew the drill – in Jamaica, at the height of his success, when music and politics were still one, before the fog of censorship rolled into the island, old wounds were opened by a wave of destabilization politics. Stories appeared in the local, regional and international press downsizing the achievements of the quasi-socialist Jamaican government under Prime Minister Michael Manley. In the late 1970s, the island was flooded with cheap guns, heroin, cocaine, right-wing propaganda, death squad rule and, as Grenada’s Prime Minister Maurice Bishop described it three years later, the CIA’s “pernicious attempts [to] wreck the economy.”
“Destabilization,” Bishop told the emergent New Jewel Party, “is the name given the most recently developed method of controlling and exploiting the lives and resources of a country and its people by a bigger and more powerful country through bullying, intimidation and violence.”
In response to the fascistic machinations of the CIA, Marley wove his lyrics into a revolutionary crucifix to ward off the cloak-and-dagger “vampires” descending upon the island. June 1976: Then-Governor-General Florizel Glasspole placed Jamaica under martial law to stanch the bloody pre-election violence. Prime Minister Manley’s People’s National Party asked the Wailers to play at the Smile Jamaica concert in December. Despite the rising political mayhem, Marley agreed to perform.
This July saw the last mission of the space shuttle, and marked an end to the first era of space exploration. But what's next? NASA has no replacement for the shuttle and will have to rely on Russia and the European Space Agency to bring crews and supplies to the International Space Station. The U.S. has lost its leadership in space exploration. Or has it?
For over 70 years, our military has been working on top secret projects in the field of electrogravitics, In the mid-1920s, an American scientist, Townsend Brown, discovered that electric charge and gravitational mass are coupled, and if he charged a metallic disc to a high voltage it had a tendency to move toward its positive pole, now known as the Biefield-Brown effect. Around 1953, Brown conducted a demonstration for the military where he flew a pair of 3-foot-diameter discs, energized with 150,000 volts and tethered to a 50-foot pole, and attained speeds of several hundred miles per hour.
The U.S. military soon had major contractors, which included Lockheed, Convair, Sperry Rand, General Electric, and many others, working on electrogravitics. In 1968, Northrop conducted wind tunnel tests where they charged the leading wing with a high voltage, with the idea that this would soften the sonic boom of an aircraft. This technology was applied by Northrop in the B-2 “Spirit” stealth bomber, which uses electrogravitic propulsion once airborne, by positively charging the leading wing and negatively charging its exhaust.
(NPR) The early Earth had two moons instead of just one — our familiar moon, as well as a smaller companion moon that also rose and set in the sky for tens of millions of years.
That's according to a new theory that says this smaller moon eventually went careening into our moon and is still there, in the form of mountains on its far side.

Scientists have long puzzled over those mountains, and the fact that the two sides of our moon are very different. The near side has flat lowlands, while the far side is high and mountainous.
Erik Asphaug, professor of Earth and planetary sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz, says he was at a talk about this asymmetry when he got an idea. "I thought, 'Well, you know, what about just something colliding with the moon, in such a manner that it didn't form a crater, but it just made a big splat?'" he recalls.
Researchers believe that our moon was created when a giant object the size of Mars hit the early Earth, sending out a disc of debris orbiting our planet. That debris coalesced to form the moon, says Asphaug, but companion moons could have formed at the same time.
He and a colleague, Martin Jutzi, did computer simulations to see what might happen if a small companion moon did a slow-motion collision with our moon.
(MSNBC)An ocean exploration team led by Swedish researcher Peter Lindberg has found what some are suggesting is a crashed flying saucer.
Lindberg's team, which has had success in the past recovering sunken ships and cargo, was using sonar to look for the century-old wreck of a ship that went down carrying several cases of a super-rare champagne. Instead, the team discovered what it claims is a mysterious round object that might (or might not) be extraterrestrial.
Lindberg explained to local media that his crew discovered, on the 300-foot-deep ocean floor between Finland and Sweden, "a large circle, about 60 feet in diameter. You see a lot of weird stuff in this job, but during my 18 years as a professional I have never seen anything like this. The shape is completely round."

Pier Luigi Ighina was an italian scientist, born on June 23 in 1908, and died in January 2004 at the age of 95. His teacher was the well known Guglielmo Marconi. Ighina is known for inventing many things during his life, one of those things being the theory of the magnetic atom, for which he created a special microscope to see, as well as many other remarkable inventions.
The world of Pier Luigi Ighina is of a science never before propagated, in which reality and mysticism seem to join in a way that is both charming and unnerving. Seismic technologies, environmental purifiers, and even the ability to change an organism’s molecular structure were all a part of the norm for Ighina. It is impossible to speak about this unusual inventor and thinker without naming his teacher and colleague( again, Marconi) —most well known for "supposedly" developing radio (Nikola Tesla was already experimenting with radio but that's another story) but also responsible for many other curious innovations. Ighina worked with Marconi until his death in 1937, and later carried on his teacher’s efforts through the secrets he shared with him.
While Ighina never invented anything as well known as the radio, his talent brought forth machines with perhaps even more astounding abilities that few would imagine, much less believe were possible.
As a student of magnetic fields, Ighina developed a great number of inventions throughout his life based on atomic vibrations. He also worked with the interaction of fields between the earth and sun, harnessing this energy to regenerate diseased cells.
Ighina’s numerous inventions include a bed of passive resonance, an earthquake neutralizer, and a strange device he dubbed “Elios,” which is said to purify any food matter that comes within its small field of action.
