This Is Why Your Shoelaces Are Always Untied

Hey, your shoe is untied, and now scientists know why: the combination of foot stomping and leg swinging cause the laces to slip apart.

Yes, a child could have told you this, but there’s a reason scientists gave knots a closer look. Knots are everywhere, from stitches used in surgery to steel cables used in construction. Sailors are familiar with the clove hitch, bowline and cleat hitch. Even DNA is a snarled knot. With knots holding so much together, scientists thought it couldn’t hurt t

UFO Sighting in Douglas, on 2017-04-09 21:20:00 – Fireball orb like ufo. small flashing lights to the left of orb in viddo

I had just got my young son to bed, took my glasses off and washed my face to get ready to go to bed my self, i said good night to my husband who was sitting in our living room when i fist noticed through the blinds i saw some thing, i kind of mumbled to my husband ‘ i can see some thing really bright out there’ and he said ‘ what?’ but i thought nothing of it because i wasn’t wearing my glasses so i said ‘ nothing it doesn’t matter’ and went to the bathroom to get my glasses and went to bed, i thought i’d just have a look out the bedroom window to see what the bright light was, and i was just absolutely confused by what i saw. i thought it was an aeroplane, but after five mins it didn’t move or the light intensity didn’t change, but it was just very bright. in the isle of man there is just a whole lot of nothing, we have one small airport. very few planes cross us. when they do, they are never this bright. i got my phone to take a picture and my first thought was that it will disappear as soon as i get my camera but it just stayed stationary in the sky. i took a couple of photos then started recording. i still wasn’t sure what i was recording so stopped. it was just very very bright. once recording it though i zoomed in and out trying to get a better idea of what it could be. i wanted to watch my video whilst the object was still statinary in the sky to get a better idea of what it was. i zoomed in and i’d see it looked like a fireball, almost like it had a ring around it, i looked up again to see it still in the sky, it then after about another 30 seconds pulsated and drifted to the left and shrank in size then disappeared. i still didn’t really think i had caught anything that great, i was trying to be logical, i watched the video over and over, after several times i noticed to the left of the orb in the video there are small flashing lights right next to it, that flash randomly throughout the video. i showed my husband just today and he is usually sceptical but he thinks i’ve really caught some thing here, and i want to share.

UFO Sighting in Edinburgh, Scotland on 2017-04-11 02:30:00 – Large dark flying rugby ball shape illuminated by the moon shining through the clouds.

Was letting the dog out into the garden for the toilet late at night. i was up late because i work nightshift and was my night off, i had been watching marco polo on netflix and was totally sober and wide awake. i was standing in the kitchen doorway admiring the moon as although it was a clear night the moon had a thin layer of cloud covering it. the cloud was so thin you could still see the moon clearly through it and the light of the moon lit up the cloud a bright white against the black of the sky. i was also watching a distant passenger jet higher up with its lights blinking when all of a sudden a large dark perfectly oval rugby ball shape flew past/through the bright white cloud just above the moon and dissapeared into the blackness of night on the other side of the cloud. it was black with no lights and made no sound it moved in a straight line and it had taken about four to five seconds to pass through the cloud. its hard to say what size it was as dont know how far up it was. it was above the cloud at least and from my point of view it was about a third of the size of the moon and much much bigger than the passenger jet. when i saw it i had to do a double take. i my life have seen many strange lights in the sky that could easily be explained away and have always laughed at the notion of ufos. but i sure as heck believe in them now. unless there are some really weird shaped aircraft flying around at night without lights on that is. i stood watching for a whle afterwards but nothing else happened

Black Triangle Sighting in Belleville, Michigan on 2017-04-08 08:00:00 – Strange star-like object in the sky

On the 4/8/2017, i was at my brother’s house in belleville michigan having dinner with the family. after dinner, which was around 8:00 pm. my dad, brother and i went outside and were watching the planes fly over. we have always been very intrigued with aviation. my brother lives very close the detroit metro airport as well so we frequently find ourselves outside watching the planes landing and taking off. at the time there were about six jets flying in different directions and at various altitudes all with visible contrails.

while we were standing in the driveway we noticed a jet flying from north to south at a very high altitude due to the contrails behind it. we started talking about it and was estimating it was moving around 500-700 mph at an altitude greater than 30,000 ft. they continued to talk to about planes while i surveyed the sky in curiosity. at this point, this is when i noticed a shiny star-like object just above the contrail the plane had just left. i stood there glued to this object because it seemed to not move nor did it look like a star, it was too shiny. i am always on the look out for strange events and decided i should take a photo. i tried retrieving my phone without taking my eyes away from it but i couldn’t get my camera on my phone engaged, so i looked away.

it only took a few seconds to get my camera ready and when i looked for the shining object i couldn’t find it, which was strange. at this point, i asked my brother and dad if they had seen the star-like object above the contrail that i was looking at and they, unfortunately, didn’t see it. my brother insisted that it was probably a satellite reflecting the sun. i told him that would be impossible because of the time of day and that the object wasn’t moving at all, i personally just thought it was a star. so, i looked around for a few mins scanning the sky like some houdini just pulled a fast one on me. it was about three mins after i noticed it was gone that i took two photos, only one had something interesting.

after i snapped the shots i looked on my phone and obviously didn’t see anything. so, kind of blew it off for the rest of the night. it was after i got home and opened up the photos on my computer i noticed something after enlarging the photo, i had picked up two black triangles in the same location of the star like object that i had seen before.

when i took this photo, all the planes had flown off and there were no birds in the sky that i could see. i also do not think that birds would be visible from the distance these objects are seen. if so, those are some big birds and we have a totally different story! i’m really happy to have picked up something because i was feeling a bit annoyed that i was the only person to have seen the object in the sky. now i have some sort of proof that i wasn’t totally losing it, ha.

i attached the original photo along with a copy with the red circles where the objects can be seen.

The Red Dragon of Revelation – A sign in Heaven -The alignment – The Event

The image of this area was blacked out by Google Sky as you can see in the video. Once this area was revealed on Sky View, It shows a pretty wild image.

But the question remains, why would they want to black out this out on Google Sky? What is even more interesting it that it appears between the legs as the Virgin as Jupiter is set to pass through the womb area in September, 2017.

Many people see this Red Dragon-like object as part of the vision that matches to the event directly to biblical references from Revelation and other books.

They are convinced that these events align in this window around September 23rd and signs in the heavens will happen, right before the Big Solar Eclipse this year.

The Landscape of Neuroscience 2006 – 2015

How has neuroscience changed over the past decade? In a new paper, Hong Kong researchers Andy Wai Kan Yeung and colleagues take a look at brain science using the tools of citation analysis.

Yeung et al. extracted data from 2006-2015 from Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports (JCR), which track publications and citations. All journals that the JCR classifies in the “Neurosciences” category were included.

The first change Yeung et al. noticed was that the number of published neuros
