I was driving home through a relatively unfamiliar area and stopped to record some pleasant scenery as the weather was quite nice for a change. as i was taking the video i noticed something strange on my screen but couldnt actually see it with the naked eye i dismissed it as something on my windshield, but then all of a sudden i started to feel as if i was having a panic attack and my heart was beating very fast and erratically so i stopped recording and continued my drive home.
upon review of the video i realized that there was some sort of craft zipping around those wind turbines i was admiring, it appeared quickly out of nowhere, and hovered in sort of a circular motion a considerable distance away, looked like two discs flying tightly in tandem, with a light radiating around them at times.
The Duncan grapefruit has been described as “the finest, sweetest grapefruit” in the world, but after 187 years as the reigning champion of the American breakfast, the grapefruit inexplicably disappeared from grocery shelves. After only a few decades, it seems like the Duncan is making a comeback in Maitland, Florida.
Meanwhile, a conflict over the essences of sweeteners like Equal and Splenda brings chemistry into the courtrooms.
The Death and Rebirth of the Duncan Grapefruit – The

Winter season is when comfort food seems to take priority over fresh produce. But eating local during winter season is easy! There are plenty of produce that are rich in nutrients and flavor during this time of the year. Winter produce can also be just as tasty and nutritious with some creativity and a little twist. Read on to learn about how these three winter vegetables.
Beets are round, little balls of vegetables that grow underground. They taste a lit
Researchers at UCSF have elucidated the structure of the receptor that makes our sensory nerves tingle when we eat wasabi.
As this receptor is important in our perception of pain, knowing its shape should help in the development of new pain medications. A company called Thinfilm, developed very thin, electronic label that tracks vital information about certain foods at each stage of the supply chain. This way, foods like sashimi salmon can have its temperature monitored from the warehouse
Dining out or shopping in a grocery store are seemingly straightforward: as the consumer, you make your selection and exchange money for goods. These interactions are based on an implicit trust that you get what you paid for. However, in recent years consumers have begun to demand more transparency with reports of mislabeled seafood at retailers and restaurants being greater than 70% in some instances .
Seafood is one of the most traded food items in the world, with approximately 4.5 b
“Given humankind’s long history of struggling to find food, it makes sense that people are highly motivated to hunt it down, and that we experience intense pleasure when we finally eat it.”
According to Lauri Nummenmaa, a neuroscientist at Aalto University in Finland, this evolutionary drive to secure food could also mean that fatty foods affect our neuronal activity. Researchers found a weight-dependent pattern in the opioid receptors of healthy weight versus morbidly obese women.
Back in 2015, I ran a three part post (1,2,3) on Dr Kenneth Blum and his claim to be able to treat what he calls “Reward Deficiency Syndrome” (RDS) with nutritional supplements.
Today my interest was drawn to a 2015 paper from Blum and colleagues, called Neuroquantum Theories of Psychiatric Genetics: Can Physical Forces Induce Epigenetic Influence on Future Genomes?.
In this paper, Blum et al. put forward some novel proposals about possible links between physics, epigenetics, and neuro
era fevereirodo ano de 1970 e tinhamos ido acampar em itanhaem na praia dos pescadores litoral de são paulo. acho que eramos em 4 pessoas ao todo.
chegamos tarde ao local, mais ou menos la pelas 16h, pois fomos de trem e onibus. improvisamos a barraca, tinhamos apenas uma lona grande e comemos alguma coisa. estavamos descansando quando vimos uma agitação de algumas pessoas que também estavam acampando. era mais ou menos 21h e este pessoal tinha posicionado o carro junto à margem do mar com os faróis acesos apontados para uma pequena ilha próxima da praia que dava para ir a pé até ela quando a maré esta baixa.
no primeiro momento pensamos que alguém tivesse ficado preso na ilha. era comum as pessoas irem até a ilha quando a maré estava baixa, porém algumas pessoas descuidada acabavam ficando presa poi a maré subia e ficava muito alta.
fomos até junto as pessoas que lá estavam e perguntamos o que estava acontecendo e perguntamos também se alguém ficou preso na ilha.Eles disseram que perceberam uma coisa estranha na ilha e resolveram posicionar o carro com os farois acesos apontando para a llha para ver mrlhor.
o que havia era uma forma estranha que daquela distancia que estavamos paracia ser bem grande. sua forma era irregular e luminosa, mas somente quando o farol do carro incilembrava um cone disforme, e o impressionate era que ele alterava seu tamanho continuamente, diminuia até ficar bem pequeno e depois aumentava o tamanho até ficar enorme. esta alteração não parava, ficava o tempo todo diminindo e aumentando.
como ninguém sabia o que era aquilo e se era perigoso ou não pessoas resolveram ir embora e passar aquela noite em um hotel na ciadade. nós com estavamos com pouco dinheiro resolvemos passar a moite na praia mesmo que preocupados. resolvemos então ficar vigiando. enquanto dois dormian, dois ficavam vigiando. e assim fizemos, porém ao amnhecer acordamos e percebemos que todos adormecemos instantaneamente e que nenhum de nós viu o que aconteceu com aquela entidade, já que já não haviua mais nada na ilha.
At approximately 930pm on march 25th 2017 a piper navajo n333hf described an encounter with a flying object with flashing green and white lights maneuvering very erratically and changing directions quickly. this is heard on around 26 minutes 30 seconds into the first attached audio recording of the atc archive provided by liveatc dot net. i was advised of this by atc since i, flying n224tw (goodspeed 224 on the attached audio recordings), was going to cross the huo (huguenot) vor (a ground-based radio navigation source) soon there after. atc then advises they saw a primary target (just a return no transponder or altitude information) just east of the vor. this is about 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the second attached atc audio file. then about a minute later i report a flying object with flashing red and white lights that was paralleling us perfectly. this one was not observed by atc on radar at all. the air traffic i saw appeared to move in, follow us for several minutes from about a mile (approximate guess) off my right wing, and pull away. it was similar to the way a military aircraft would move in to identify an aircraft (maybe looking for the ufo harassing n333hf but i’m speculating there). the green light object continues to follow the navajo into northern nj (starts at about 7 minutes 50 seconds into the 3rd attached audio recording). to summarize there was at least 1 possibly up to 3 (the green lighted one reported by n333hf, the primary target reported by atc, and the red and white lighted one reported by me) flying object(s) that were flying in close proximity to civilian aircraft and following them for miles. typically military aircraft would be talking to atc on a separate frequency but according to atc nobody else was talking to them. the conditions were ifr so any aircraft flying should have been talking to atc and squawking a discrete code on their transponders but this (or these) unidentified flying object(s) while having lighting similar to aircraft were not talking or squawking to anybody. this means they were flying illegally and had no or a very low radar profile. i estimate the altitudes of the object(s) to have been between 4000 and 12000ft based on my own account and that of n333hf. the four (at least) witnesses are myself, my first officer, the pilot(s) of n333hf, and the air traffic controller. it is possible n333hf and/or their or my passengers may have witnessed things as well as other aircraft in the area and/or people on the ground i’m not sure. the audio recordings were provided by liveatc, a third party of hobbyist radio operators that record live air traffic control and archive the files as well. our flight paths can be viewed here: flightaware dot com/live/flight/n333hf/history/20170326/0045z/kalb/kteb and here: flightaware dot com/live/flight/gpd224/history/20170325/2300z/kith/kmmu
Around 1:15 pm, my wife and i were sitting outside having tea when she noticed this shiny object hovering high in the south west. it was moving very slowly to the west but it eventually changed direction. it was difficult to look at since it was next to the sun. it did not look like an airplane, balloon or bird. it appeared to be shiny and reflecting the sunlight. it was making slight movements and was not heading in a particular direction. both of us noticed that it changed from one object into two objects. the objects appeared to be rotating around each other. the objects were visible for approximately 5 minutes and then suddenly disappeared.
