What is this weird animal sound?

What is this weird animal sound?

I just received this message from somebody living in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales. There is this blackbird at dawn (5:20am)… But then at around 00:20 secs, this: Her phone doesn’t appear faulty. Anybody knows what it could be? I think it is an animal but I cannot tell which one. Thank you for your help… Follow […]

Breath in deep. Now let the breath fall out. Again.

Complete this exercise 30 times and a growing number of people will tell you to expect everything from changing the chemistry of your body to being able to survive insanely dangerous temperatures. This trend was kicked off by an eccentric Dutchman named Wim Hof who has dazzled the world with an array of stunts. Hof has successfully survived extreme cold while setting world records for swimming under polar ice, staying submerged up to his neck in a tub of ice, and running a marathon above the Arctic circle wearing only gym shorts and sandals. Not only that, but Hof has summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in the same scant attire, and even attempted to summit Mt. Everest as well. What’s more, he claims that by practicing his special breathing technique, you and I can achieve the same results.

The startling thing about Wim Hof is that he not only completes his cold weather challenges with ease, but he has been scientifically monitored in order to see just what is going on in his body. After being monitored in 2008 at the University (more…)

“Wow, That’s Weird” – FOIA Exposes FAA Tapes From Oregon UFO Incident

“Wow, That’s Weird” – FOIA Exposes FAA Tapes From Oregon UFO Incident

On October 25, an unidentified flying object (UFO) was detected on radar, which turned into a series of eyewitness accounts made by commercial airline pilots over the skies of Northern California and Oregon. Even the U.S. Air Force scrambled their McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagles as part of the military’s protocol to combat threats of an intruding aircraft penetrating deep inside America’s airspace. By the time the interceptor fighter jets arrived, the mysterious aircraft became invisible and disappeared from radar.

Last November, “The War Zone” blog of the automotive website The Drive, posted an exclusive story detailing the mysterious white object buzzing around the skies near commercial airliners in Northern California and Oregon. The blog tracked down various accounts of what happened that day from pilots and also obtained confirmation about the F-15 Eagles launch to intercept the intruding aircraft that has left so many people puzzled.

Now, through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), The War Zone presents a mindblowing and insightful account (more…)

There’s something weird going on that’s worrying the markets

There’s something weird going on that’s worrying the markets

  • Markets are showing signs of nervousness, which analysts say is not necessarily the dire warning some fear.
  • There is concern that the bond market is sending warnings about the economy, as high yield debt sells off and the Treasury yield curve flattens.
  • The yields of longer duration bonds are getting closer to the yields of shorter duration bonds, and some see that as a forewarning about a slower economy.

There’s an odd chill in the air on Wall Street, but many analysts are shrugging it off as a temporary cooling of a market that still has room to run.

Continuing a choppy trend of the last several sessions, stocks Tuesday seesawed and closed lower. The dollar weakened, as commodities like copper and oil sold off. The high yield debt market was under pressure, as buyers moved into safety at the long end of the Treasury curve.

“We’re just taking a little bit of a break,” said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities.

The stock market hiccupped in morning trading, with the Dow dipping nearly 170 points, but it later closed down just 30 at 23,409, its third loss in four (more…)

Weird atmospheric wave ripples over China

Weird atmospheric wave ripples over China

MESOSPHERIC BORE (IT’S NOT WHAT YOU THINK)

This month, a lot is happening in the mesosphere. The mesosphere is a layer of Earth’s atmosphere above the stratosphere; it is the realm of sprites, noctilucent clouds (NLCs), and airglow. Starting on Nov. 17th, NASA’s AIM spacecraft spotted bright noctilucent clouds forming in the mesosphere above Antarctica. Then, in an apparently unrelated development on Nov. 24th, the normal dome of airglow over China split in two.

Comment: Meanwhile down below between 17th and 25th November there were strong earthquakes occurring: Strong 6.4 magnitude earthquake strikes Argentina, 7.3 Magnitude earthquake off Fukushima triggers tsunami warning, Magnitude 6.5 earthquake hits northeast Tajikistan, Tsunami warning lifted in El Salvador and Nicaragua after 7.0 magnitude earthquake strikes in Pacific Ocean

More weird weather hits Australia; snow falls in Tasmania just days ahead of summer

More weird weather hits Australia; snow falls in Tasmania just days ahead of summer

Just when you think the weather in Australia can’t get any weirder, it always manages to, and then some.

With summer merely days away it has begun to snow in Tasmania.

Footage shows snow falling in our southern most state late Wednesday afternoon has gone viral and left internet users stunned.

The footage was uploaded to the Tasmanian Rover Ski Club social media accounts as a possible last minute push for potential ski bunnies to flock to the slopes.

“It is only 7 days until summer though you would not think that on Ben Lomond late this afternoon,” the post reads.

The footage has been viewed over 170,000 times since it was first posted.

The temperature today in Tasmania will reach a low of 7 degrees.

Tasmanians could be witnessing a new trend, the Apple Isle having been struck by out-of-season around the same time last November and again in February this year.

In stark contrast, neighbouring Victoria this week experienced severe thunderstorms, high winds, grassfires and a steep drop in temperature from a November record high – all in one day.
