Once upon a time, Area 51 didn’t exist. Now, apparently, it does. And it’s still one of the most secret places in America.
After decades of denial, the government now publicly acknowledges that Area 51 — seen below in a satellite image — is a secret military installation north of Las Vegas. It has been variously referred to as Groom Lake, Dreamland and The Ranch. . . . Read Complete Report

It’s amazing what our
inverted totalitarian government can accomplish when they focus their collective institutionally paranoid minds upon a project. Take the NSA’s massive surveillance data processing and collections center in Bluffdale, Utah. As James Bamford noted in early 2012, it was scheduled to be up and running by September 2013, two months from now. But, according to NSA whistleblower Russell Tice, it already is.
And, before reading this eye-opening piece, I just want to state the obvious to all those reading these words, because this certainly is worthy of repetition: The simple fact remains that if all this information (and I earn my livelihood, in part, by working with personal-private information on a daily basis) is accessible to domestic law enforcement authorities, IT WILL BE ABUSED, and it most certainly is being abused; and, sooner or later, the odds are that this abuse will egregiously target not just YOU (it already has), but virtually all that struggle via non-violent protest for change in America. . . .

Image: The National Security Agency of the United States is building a giant data center in Bluffdale Utah. It will cost $2 billion and collect so-called “yottobytes” of information; a yottobyte is a septillion bytes (10^24). According to one report, “It’s a state-of-the-art facility designed to support the intelligence community in its mission to, in turn, enable and protect the nation’s cybersecurity.” It will collect a wide range of data about people to prevent terrorism. In addition, it will have powerful computers built to decipher encrypted information.

Researchers from Israel say that mysterious clay and stone artefacts from Neolithic times could be the earliest known “matches”.
Although the cylindrical objects have been known about for some time, they had previously been interpreted as “cultic” phallic symbols.
The researchers’ new interpretation means these could be the earliest evidence of how fires were ignited.
The research was published in the open access journal Plos One.
The journal reports that the artefacts are almost 8,000 years old. . . . Read Complete Report
