‘Human Skull Found In Mars’ Hoax: Is It Alien Bones, UFO, Or Just Another Rock?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A recently discovered NASA photograph of what looks like a human skull lying on the surface of Mars has intrigued many people with a lot of buzz on social media platforms. 

  The image was reportedly taken by the panoramic camera on the Spirit rover in the planet a few years ago, but gained notice recently after the Paranormal Crucible website posted a YouTube video of the image with digital alterations to make it look even more like a skull.

Although the digitally altered picture of the image appears to push the theory that Alien creatures could have lived in the red planet, the image itself does not seem to be convincing enough to draw any conclusion. Many would only argue that it is nothing more than just another rock in the planet.”

Watch A Semi-Truck’s World-Record Jump Over A Lotus F1 Car

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Wanna see a world-record stunt? Something crazy and mind-blowing and death-defying? How does a tractor-trailer breaking the Guinness World Record for jump length tickle you? Oh, and for good measure, a Lotus Formula 1 car. Yeah, that’ll do.

  So here’s the setup: Mike Ryan, the guy who can race a big rig up Pikes Peak or drift it around a racetrack as if he was driving a normal-size car, designed the stunt and is the wheelman in the truck. Martin Ivanov pilots the F1 car. Both guys have extensive experience as stunt drivers in various Bond, Bourne, and Fast and Furious movies. In other words: these are very experienced professionals, so definitely don’t try this at home. “

Bunny Mellon’s Blue Diamond Sells For More Than $32.6 Million, Sets Two World Auction Records

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A 9.75-carat fancy vivid blue diamond from the collection of Mrs. Paul Mellon sold for more than $32.6 million, shattering its high estimate of $15 million at Sotheby’s New York Thursday. The price set a world auction record for any blue diamond; and at more than $3.3 million per carat, it set a world auction record for price-per-carat for any diamond.

  The pear-shaped diamond was sought after by seven bidders who competed for 20 minutes for the gem, Sotheby’s said. It ultimately sold to a Hong Kong private collector who named it “The Zoe Diamond.”

“ From the moment I saw this diamond, I knew that it would be one of the most important stones that I will ever have the privilege of presenting at auction,” said Gary Schuler, head of Sotheby’s Jewelry Department in New York. “Mrs Mellon’s diamond absolutely deserves the place in the record books that it achieved tonight.” “

Drone Captures Scope Of Massive Snowfall In Otherwise Unreachable Great Lakes Area

 

 

 

” With two days having passed since the heaviest lake-effect snow buried parts of western New York, numerous communities remain under a state of emergency, with residents confined to their homes in the wake of several travel bans.

  Snowbound James Grimaldi, however, of West Seneca, New York, used his drone to capture the aerial views of his neighborhood, revealing snow-covered roofs and eerily quiet roadways.

  West Seneca received 61.5 inches of snow from late Tuesday night into Friday but was far from the hardest-hit area.

” The areas that got hit the hardest were farther away from the lake than West Seneca and had lower temperatures,” AccuWeather.com Expert Meteorologist Brett Anderson said.

” In West Seneca, the air was warmer and the snow was heavier and wetter, so it compacted more than fluffy snow would have,” he said.

  In Lancaster, New York, more than 74 inches fell, making it difficult for plows and shoveling efforts to keep up with the demand.”

UK’s First ‘Poo Bus’ Goes Into Service Between Bristol And Bath

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The UK’s first bus powered entirely by human and food waste has gone into service between Bristol and Bath.

  The 40-seat “Bio-Bus” runs on biomethane gas generated through the treatment of sewage and food waste.

  The eco-friendly vehicle can travel up to 300km (186 miles) on one tank of gas, which takes the annual waste of about five people to produce.

  It is run by tour operator Bath Bus Company and will shuttle people between Bristol Airport and Bath city centre.

  The biomethane gas is generated at Bristol sewage treatment works in Avonmouth, which is run by GENeco, a subsidiary of Wessex Water.

  GENeco general manager Mohammed Saddiq said: “Gas-powered vehicles have an important role to play in improving air quality in UK cities but the Bio-Bus goes further than that and is actually powered by people living in the local area, including quite possibly those on the bus itself.” “

Elections Matter?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” “Elections matter,” declared President Obama in his 2012 victory speech. “Elections matter,” he reiterated shortly before the 2014 midterms.

  But it turns out they don’t. Not to him. You gotta hand it to the guy: It would be hard to devise a more open expression of contempt for the will of the people than what he’s just done. An election was held. His party lost, badly. And, without waiting for the new guys even to take their seats, in the so-called “lame-duck session” (an unnecessary carbuncular proceduralism most developed nations manage to do without), the President tells the – oh, what’s the word? – “citizenry”, “Hey, thanks for taking the trouble to drive to the polling station the other day. Leave your name at the desk and if we need you for cheering extras at my photo-op we’ll get back to you.” You can change legislators. Meanwhile, he’ll change the legislation.

  I’m getting weary of the monarchical comparisons, which are a bit of an insult to real monarchs. The Obama model seems to owe more to Judge Dredd, the popular comic-book figure with the power to arrest, convict, sentence and execute as he does what’s necessary to bring hope and change to a dystopian megalopolis. Likewise, President Dredd: “He is the Law, and you’d better believe it!” A contempt for the people and for constitutional and legal restraints is what ties the President’s actions on Thursday night to Eric Holder’s corrupt justice department to Lois Lerner’s corrupt revenue agency to Jonathan Gruber’s corrupt health commissariat (merely to skim the surface of the most recent additions to the unending Obama-scandals document dump).

  To express common-or-garden contempt for the will of the people, Obama could have simply repealed another handful of inconvenient paragraphs from Obamacare or made Lois Lerner Attorney-General, but the form of contempt he chose is especially exquisite: “legalizing” millions of foreign law-breakers and setting them on the path to US citizenship. The chief of state has heard the voice of the people and his message to them is: “Yeah, whatever, I can always get another people. Hey, here comes five million or so right now, plus another ten million in chain-migration relatives down the road…” “

Breakthrough Stroke Treatment A Game-Changer For Sufferers

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Stroke is a leading cause of death in the U.S., killing 130,000 Americans each year — one of every 19 deaths, federal statistics show. One reason: Conventional treatments involving clot-busting drugs are only effective when given within three hours of a stroke’s onset, so most sufferers never make it to the hospital in time.
 
  But a revolutionary new procedure is giving stroke victims new hope and help, as Newsmax TV’s “Meet The Doctors” reports this week.” It’s called a thrombectomy, and the procedure essentially involves vacuuming out blood clots that form in the brain causing strokes, blocking blood flow and leading to disability and death.
 
  Imran Chaudry. M.D., with the Medical University of South Carolina Medical Center, explains that with a thrombectomy, patients can benefit even 12 hours after suffering a stroke, and perhaps longer. Although the procedure is still considered experimental, studies are underway to refine the technique and establish its safety and effectiveness — research that could lead the Food and Drug Administration to approve it as a front-line stroke therapy. “

Tennessee DA Restricts Use Of Civil Forfeiture Laws

 

 

Tennessee Asset Forfeiture Reform

 

 

 

” An agency at the center of NewsChannel 5′s “Policing for Profit” investigation has severely restricted the use of civil forfeiture laws that had been used to seize cash from drivers passing through Tennessee.

  Instead, the new boss of the 23rd Judicial District Drug Task Force said he wants officers to re-emphasize their primary mission of looking for drugs.

  For more than three years, NewsChannel 5 Investigates has shined the light on laws that let police take cash from drivers without charging them with a crime.

  Critics called it “highway robbery.”

I don’t want the public to believe that we are out there trying to just take money from innocent people,” said District Attorney General Ray Crouch. “That is not what we are going to do. I am not going to be part of that.

  It marks the first time that a Tennessee district attorney has publicly rejected the broad use of the civil forfeiture laws that have drawn national attention. For the past several years, the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference has lobbied lawmakers to preserve that source of money.

” I want the public to know that they do not have to be in fear of the 23rd Judicial Drug Task Force seizing their personal property, their cash, their assets,” Crouch toldNewsChannel 5 Investigates. “

Obama’s Amnesty Threatens To Shut Constitution

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Pundits warn that a funding fight over the president’s move to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens threatens a politically risky government shutdown. But there’s something much more important at stake here.

  The Founders had good reason to give Congress the power of the purse: Short of impeachment, it’s the most effective way to stop a lawless president from disobeying the will of Congress and usurping powers not granted by the Constitution.

  The question is: Will Congress use this power to thwart President Obama’s shredding of the Constitution with his executive amnesty plan? “

 

 

Even some renowned liberals are recognizing the threat to our Constitution posed by “King Obama’s” unilateral action …

 

 

” There’s more at stake here than mere political fortunes. We are at the constitutional tipping point that Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley warned us about as Obama continues to wield executive authority that he himself once said he did not have.

  We live in a constitutional republic, and the president who says he cannot wait for the Congress to act ignores a Constitution that says he has to. Article I, Section 8 gives Congress exclusive authority to “establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization” and Article II, Section 3 says that it’s the president’s duty “to take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.”

  Professor Turley told the House Judiciary Committee at a Dec. 3 hearing that Obama’s abuse of executive power has grown to the point that “he’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid.” “

Obama Puts The Cat Among The Pigeons

 

 

Executive Amnesty

 

 

” Barack Obama put the cat among the pigeons Thursday night, but he may be surprised by how big that cat could get, and with it a big cat’s appetite for more than pigeons.

  His “executive orders” demanding a stop to deportations is no doubt good news for millions of illegal immigrants — 5 million at last count — he wants to preserve and protect for Democrats looking to replenish a depleted constituency. But it’s not such good news for anyone who appreciates law and order on the border. Amnesties can be good, but they must be written carefully lest they invite more of the same misery that led to amnesty. The president’s invitation to the millions south of the border — “Come on in, I’ll find a way to make you legal later” — guarantees that hell on the border will continue, and probably get worse. The hell on the Potomac will get a lot worse.

  The president and his lawyers are clever. By not actually issuing an executive order called an executive order — he can call it a “memo” to his prosecutors but it’s still an order from the executive — he will make it more difficult for the Republicans to find a way to overturn it. 

  Just the anticipation of the president’s big speech set off cries and celebrations. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, having abandoned her dream of ascending once more to speaker of the House, and who knows no more of the nation’s history than the president apparently does, got lost Thursday afternoon in a history book. She mistook Barack Obama for Abraham Lincoln, and his immigration amnesty for the Emancipation Proclamation. “Does the public know that the Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order? she asked. (Does the public know that the Emancipation Proclamation preserved slavery in the four slave states still in the Union, and freed no slaves in the departed Confederate states? The public could look it up.) The only similarities in Mr. Lincoln’s proclamation and Mr. Obama’s order is that neither was intended to resolve anything, but to set loose that cat among the pigeons. The Civil War circa 1861-1865 ground bloodily on, and the immigration system circa 2014 is still broken and bleeding, and probably farther from resolution than ever.

  Civil war is the metaphor of the day. Phyllis Schlafly, who almost single-handedly defeated the feminist crusade for an equal-rights amendment, now calls Mr. Obama’s executive order “a modern-day Fort Sumter.” “

Jon Stewart Calls Out Not-Emperor Obama’s Powerlust By Pointing Out Something He’s Overlooked

 

 

 

” Remember when President Obama, when asked about what he would do to “ensure more people aren’t being deported,” deferred by saying:

My job is to execute laws that are passed.

And… 

I’m the President of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States.

Jon Stewart remembers. And he’s noticed how the President’s latest words on the extent of his presidential powers don’t exactly square with his previous declaration that he is not “the emperor.”

I’m going to do what I can do through executive action.

It’s good to be the king. “

Crime-Fighting Robots Go On Patrol In Silicon Valley

 

 

 

 

” A new kind of security guard is on patrol in Silicon Valley: crime-fighting robots that look like they’re straight out of a sci-fi movie.

  At first glance, the K5 security robot looks like a cartoonish Star Wars character.

“ The vast majority of people see it and go, ‘Oh my God, that’s so cute.’ We’ve had people go up and hug it, and embrace it for whatever reason,” said Stacy Stephens, co-founder of Knightscope, headquartered in Mountain View.

  They are unarmed, but they are imposing: about 5 feet tall and 300 pounds, which very likely will make someone think twice before committing a crime in their presence.

“ The first thing that’s going to happen is the burglar is going to spot the robot. And unfortunately, criminals are inherently lazy. They’re not looking for something that’s going to be confrontational, they’re looking for something that’s going to be an easy target,” said Stacy Stephens, co-founder of Knightscope. “They see the robot and maybe they move down to the next place down the street.” “

Three Wounded In Florida State University Shooting, Gunman Killed

 

 

 

 

 

” A gunman opened fire at a Florida university library, leaving three people wounded before campus police shot him dead early on Thursday, police said.

  Officers confronted the attacker outside Florida State University’s Strozier Library, ordered him to drop his weapon, then shot him dead when he opened fire on them, Tallahassee police said.

  Three people were wounded, police spokesman David Northway told reporters, without giving further details. A nursing supervisor at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare hospital said medics were treating two victims for gunshot wounds.

  Graduate student Alexandra Lauren told CNN that she was in the library at the time of the shooting.

” We heard the gunshots, and then it was in a matter of seconds the entire first floor just seemed to go into chaos,” Lauren said, her voice wavering.

” It was very scary. I’m just more heartbroken than anything else. FSU means a lot to me,” she added. “
