Spiral UFO's

This recent phenomena has been observed since 2009. It usually consists of a blue beam of light with a greyish spiral emanating from one end of it and can be seen from great distances. They usually disappear after forming what looks like a doughnut shaped cloud with a black hole inside of it. On occasion, there appears to be a small dot coming out of it.There have been reported sightings in Norway, Russia, Australia, Canada, China, etc.

Theories ranging from a misfired missiles, meteor fireball, never-before-seen type of northern light, 'black hole' and even alien activity were all proposed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            After reviewing numerous videos on YouTube, I have come to the conclusion that it would be quite difficult to create such an elaborate hoax, with the obvious exception of the Canadian and Thailand sightings                                                                                                                                                                         .

Increasing winds on Earth

Winds have been on the increase for over two decades and are showing no signs of slowing down. We are seeing an upward trend in severe weather as well, such as hurricanes, monsoons and tornadoes (with over 240 reported tornadoes in the US alone between April 14-16, 2011). An increase in winds also means an increase in ocean waves, a concern for coastal communities.

If winds continue to get gustier at the same rate over the next 50 years, the destructive forces of Category 5 hurricanes will multiply.

New research suggests that ocean temperature and associated sea level increases between 1961 and 2003 were 50 percent larger than estimated.

Global Warming?

Giant Atlantic Whirlpool hoax?

US Scientists have apparently discovered 2 massive whirlpools in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Guyana. These events are said to be around 400 kilometres (250 miles) in diameter according to Brazilian scientist Guilherme Castellane. There has never been such an event recorded in that part of the ocean ever before. Rotation is said to occur at a rate of one metre per second. The natural phenomenon, which creates the whirlpools, is not completely known to modern science.

I am highly sceptical regarding this occurrence for numerous reasons, first off I could not find any proof of a Brazilian scientist by that name or any factual scientific documents, and the article first came out of a news agency from Russia that might be the equivalence of ‘The National Enquirer’.

It is not without saying that there has been proof of other recent ocean mega plumes in other parts of the world including the Indian Ocean as well as the recent one near Japan.

"I'd be surprised if in the next five years we didn't experience a mini-revolution in terms of finding these in places where they are not supposed to exist." said geophysicist Robert Reves-Sohn of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Could megaplumes be caused by magma deep on the ocean floor or possibly global warming and the resulting difference in water salinity?

Edward Leedskalnin’s Coral Castle

Edward Leedskalnin was an eccentric Latvian emigrant who moved to North America several years after his fiancée broke their engagement the night before their wedding. He eventually moved to Florida around 1920 after working odd jobs in the lumber industry in both Canada and the US. Over the next 20 years he constructed and lived within a massive coral monument. Working alone at night, he quarried and carved over 1000 tons of coral, some as heavy as 30 tons with no outside assistance or large machinery. He was just over 5 feet tall and weighed only 100 pounds. His construction methods remain a mystery to this day.

Despite having a grade 4 education, Leedskalnin wrote 5 pamphlets during his lifetime, 4 of which addressed his theories on magnetism and electricity and their interaction with the human body.

Strange sounds #3

Seems Planet earth has been trying to talk to us for quite some time now, or at least that would be one of the theories going around regarding these phenomena. Apparently people have been hearing various types of mysterious sounds from either the sky, and in some cases, or from the Earth itself.

Recently, a new trend has emerged all over the world regarding a strange new sound that has peaked   interest in yours truly. Now there has been very little information about this sound other than people blogging and a fewYouTube videos. Some say it is HAARP, others seem to think it might have something to do with pole shift or warming of the planets core, all speculative.

Here are a few examples,

1-Recent Earth Rumblings.
Please feel free to research this subject and get back to me with more information please.

2- Hums.
Citizens in the UK, as well as the US, have been witness to a loud, enduring hum. No one can figure out the source of the low-pitched hum though it seems somewhat artificial. In 1977, A British newspaper received over 800 letters from people complaining about loss of sleep, irritability and deteriorating health as a result of the Hum.  

3- Mistpouffers.
Mistpouffers are a phenomena about loud booms, also referred to as “Guns of the Seneca”, sounds that resemble distant cannon fire, usually near large bodies of water. Artillery testing would be an obvious culprit here, however, that theory has been researched and ruled out. Some have speculated that undersea activity (perhaps seismic) creates great bubbles of released gas which floats to the surface and creates huge “ocean farts”, however it is a stretch to think that these bubbles could produce a sound strong enough to create the distant-gunfire sound.  

4- The Hell Hole.
Guaranteed to scare the living daylights out of any devout Catholics out there, I decided to add this one as a more humorous and comical equation to the scenario.

   More than forty years ago researchers in the Soviet Union began an ambitious drilling project whose goal was to penetrate the Earth’s upper crust and sample the warm, mysterious area where the crust and mantle intermingle. When drilling stopped in 1994, the hole was over seven miles deep, making it by far the deepest hole ever drilled by humans. The last of the cores to be plucked from from the borehole was dated to be about 2.7 billion years old. .Microphones were lowered into the hole and human screams were heard, hordes of ‘tortured souls'. Many of the scientists quit the project in fear and/or became total nervous wrecks as a result.
