Covering more than 7 million square kilometres in South America, the Amazon basin is one of the biggest and most impressive river systems in the world. But it turns out we have only known half the story until now.

Brazilian scientists have found a new river in the Amazon basin – around 4km underneath the Amazon river. The Rio Hamza, named after the head of the team of researchers who found the groundwater flow, appears to be as long as the Amazon river but up to hundreds of times wider. . .  Read Complete Report

Secret Raid on Occupy Group. Police State Chicago: The Tip of the Iceburg?

nato-roundtable-lg

Except for Friday night when both sides got a little antsy last weekends Occupy Chicago – NATO demonstrations was all and all a peaceful show of force.  We patched into those brave alternative press video-journalists who, mostly at their own expense and the donations of other patriots, bravely took to the streets so that those of us unable to attend could participate virtually by watching it live streamed all across the world. I feel this new wave of alternative media was an amazing success and THEI will continue to bring you live reports as the coming summer of lively people “demonstrations” continues.

The stories I am hearing about the so-called “NATO 3″ is that they are being held in solitary confinement. . . . EDITOR

According to one reported in Green Wave May 23rd, 2012;

“Defense attorney Thomas Anthony Durkin questions whether the police had legal justification to initiate the investigation. “Was there really a serious threat coming from these people that they were aware of?” he said. “I haven’t heard any evidence to support that. My client did not come here from Florida in order to do violence.”

“The defendants were among those arrested May 16 in a raid of a Bridgeport apartment by police that defense attorneys say was illegal. They were also in a car that was stopped by Chicago police last week. Video of that incident alleges police tried to intimidate and harass the men. The Sun-Times reports law enforcement officials asked a judge for the “no-knock” warrant because they were preparing to move the explosives to another location and feared they’d lose track. Authorities maintain the raid was just an effort to stop an “imminent threat.” . . . Read Complete Report

A federal judge has ruled that law enforcement illegally placed a GPS tracking device on a Kentucky man’s car, and has barred prosecutors from using 150 pounds of marijuana discovered in a subsequent search of the vehicle.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Kentucky State Police found the cannabis in a car belonging to 49-year-old Robert Dale Lee near Lexington in September 2011 because they used the GPS tracking device to follow him without a warrant authorizing it, concluded U.S. District Judge Amul R. Thapar, reports Brett Barrouquere of The Associated Press. . . . Read Complete Report

Archaeologists have discovered evidence for a previously unknown ancient language – buried in the ruins of a 2800 year old Middle Eastern palace.

The discovery is important because it may help reveal the ethnic and cultural origins of some of history’s first ‘barbarians’ – mountain tribes which had, in previous millennia, preyed on the world’s first great civilizations,  the cultures of early Mesopotamia in what is now Iraq. . . .

Search for Advanced Extraterrestrial Life –”Probe Mars for Artifacts” Say Leading Astrophysicists

from The Daily Galaxy

May 19, 2012

The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has a low probability of success, but it would have a high impact if successful. Physicists Paul Davies and Robert Wagner of Arizona State University argued last year that it makes sense to widen the search to scour the Moon for possible alien artifacts. At Penn State, researchers propose the same type of search for Mars. To date, SETI has been dominated by the paradigm of seeking deliberately beamed radio messages. The ASU team argued that Alien civilizations may have sent probes to our region of the galaxy, and that any mission to the solar system would probably have occurred a very long time ago. The lunar environment could preserve artifacts for millions of years due to the absence of erosion and plate tectonics. . . . Read Complete Report

**UPDATED: The name of Rodney Gomes and his topic were just wiped off of the speakers list of the meeting in Oregon. According to National Geographic he made his presentation in May 8 conveniently one day later the website of the meeting was updated and his name is seen nowhere in the list of invited speakers:

http://dda.harvard.edu/meetings/2012/

Brazilian astronomer/astrophysicist Rodney Gomes, of the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, made a presentation at the meeting of American Astronomical Society in Timberline Lodge, Oregon, about his theory that there’s a rogue planet hidden behind Neptune, messing with the orbits of the objects of the Kuiper Belt. Depictions of this supposed planet, based in the astronomical model of Gomes, put it as a serious candidate to be the mythic Sumerian celestial body known as NIBIRU.
