Sergio Canavero: Will His Head Transplants Roll?

Will the first human head transplant happen soon? According to Sergio Canavero, it will – and he’ll be the man to do it.

In 2015, Canavero announced his intention to carry out the pioneering operation, with the head being that of a Russian man, Valery Spiridonov, who has a muscle degenerative disease. The source of the donor body was never specified. More recently, Canavero has said that a Chinese patient will be the first to have their head transplanted.

So who is Sergio Canavero,

Giant Deep Sea Creature Washes Ashore Hulung Village, Maluku (video)

The carcass of a giant sea creature was discovered by locals on the coast of Hulung Village, Iha Kec. Huamual Kab. Seram Bagian Barat, Maluku on May 9, 2017.

Currently officials are checking the carcass of the giant creature of what could be of a giant squid, thought they are not yet sure as the size of the animal is about 20 meters long and its weigh is about 35 tons what is extraordinary when you think that the length of such deep sea animals very rarely exceeds 13 m for females and 10 m for males from the posterior fins to the tip of the longest tentacles whereby the maximum weight is estimated at about 275 kg.

As these creatures normally living in the depth of the oceans at a range of between 300-1000 meters it is unknown and extremely rare why this giant squid came to surface to die, ending up on the coast of Hulung village.

According to the officials, it is thought to have died more than three days ago, given the swollen condition of the animal.

A reason for the death of this deep sea creature could be due to the fact that oceans are losing oxygen rapidly especially low-oxygen areas are expanding in deep waters, killing some creatures outright.

While the cause of the death of the giant squid is still unknown it is quite possible that the animal came in a gigantic pool of low-oxygen, then staying up high, trying to avoid suffocating below.

According to Nationalgeographic warming temperatures are sucking oxygen out of waters even far out at sea, making enormous stretches of deep ocean hostile to marine life with as a result that in more and more places around the world, these predators, rather than using their formidable power to plunge into the depths again, they are sticking near the surface and dying.

The UFOs and Nukes Book (Second Edition—Revised and Updated) Available at Amazon

UFOs & Nukes - Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites

     Researcher Robert Hastings’ newly revised and updated book, UFOs and Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites,is now available at Amazon.

The reality of UFO incursions at American nuclear weapons facilities has been convincingly established. Hundreds of U.S. military veterans now openly discuss these ominous incidents and thousands of declassified government documents substantiate their revelations.

Over the past four decades, renowned researcher Robert Hastings has interviewed more than 150 of those veterans regarding their involvement in these astounding cases. On September 27, 2010, CNN live-streamed his UFOs and Nukes press conference in Washington D.C. during which former U.S. Air Force officers described numerous nuclear missiles mysteriously malfunctioning moments after a disc-shaped craft was observed hovering near their underground launch silos.

That shocking episode, in March 1967, was merely the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Documented UFO activity occurred at a plutonium processing plant in Washington State as early as January 1945, months prior to the atomic bombings in Japan. Another incident, in October 2010, involved one missile base in Wyoming being unable to communicate with several of its missile launch control capsules just as a huge cigar-shaped craft slowly flew over them.

Significantly, documents smuggled out of Russia in the 1990s confirm that Soviet nukes were also the focus of UFO interest during the Cold War era. On one occasion, in October 1982, a number of missiles temporarily activated for launch, as terrified officers attempted to disrupt the unauthorized count-down. After 15 seconds, the anomaly terminated and the equipment returned to standby status. While this was taking place, an enormous disc silently hovered over the base.

In short, the evidence presented in UFOs and Nukes makes clear that humans’ deadliest weapons have been, since their development and use during World War II, under intense scrutiny by still-unidentified observers possessing tremendously advanced technology.

Given these disclosures, it seems evident that the UFO-Nukes Connection is highly significant and perhaps even the key reason these mysterious aerial craft have appeared in our skies over the past seven decades.

I am Lionfish, hear me ROAR!

Ok, well maybe more like grunt or drum. Still, this recording comes from the first study to document that lionfishes—the invasive, venomous scourges of the Atlantic and Mediterranean—make sounds.

Many fish species use noise to communicate—so many, in fact, that their sounds can create a morning chorus on a reef akin to the wakening melodies of birds. There is even an entire family of fishes, the Haemulidae or “grunts,” whose

The Coral Microbiome May Offer Protection in Warming Seas

Ofu Island – a speck of land emerging from the southwest Pacific Ocean – is a textbook paradise. Jagged, forest-covered peaks rise steeply from palm-fringed white sand beaches, as colorful birds sound off in the distance.

But beneath the waves, it’s a different story: Ofu Island’s coral reefs are suffering. As temperatures in some lagoons eclipse 35 °C on a daily basis, extensive coral bleaching is leaving a graveyard of rocky, spindly skeletons reaching into the warming water.
