Via Disclose.tv The Russian navy has declassified its records of encounters with unidentified objects technologically surpassing anything humanity ever built, reports Svobodnaya Pressa news website. The records dating back to soviet times were compiled by a special navy group collecting reports of unexplained incidents delivered by submarines and military ships. The group was headed by deputy Navy commander Admiral Nikolay Smirnov, and the documents reveal numerous cases of possible UFO encounters, the website says. Vladimir Azhazha, former navy officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher, says the materials are of great value. "Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water", he said. On one occasion a nuclear submarine, which was on a combat mission in the Pacific Ocean, detected six unknown objects. After the crew failed to leave behind their pursuers by maneuvering, the captain ordered to surface. The objects followed suit, took to the air, and flew away. Many mysterious events happened in the region of Bermuda Triangle, recalls retired submarine commander Rear Admiral Yury Beketov. Instruments malfunctioned with no apparent reason or detected strong interference. The former navy officer says this could be deliberate disruption by UFOs. "On several occasions the instruments gave reading of material objects moving at incredible speed. Calculations showed speeds of about 230 knots, or 400 kph. Speeding so fast is a challenge even on the surface. But water resistance is much higher. It was like the objects defied the laws of physics. There’s only one explanation: the creatures who built them far surpass us in development", Beketov said. Navy intelligence veteran, Captain 1st rank Igor Barklay comments: "Ocean UFOs often show up wherever our or NATO’s fleets concentrate. Near Bahamas, Bermudas, Puerto Rico. They are most often seen in the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, in the southern part of the Bermuda Triangle, and also in the Caribbean Sea". Another place where people often report UFO encounters is Russia’s Lake Baikal, the deepest fresh water body in the world. Fishermen tell of powerful lights coming from the deep and objects flying up from the water. In one case in 1982 a group of military divers training at Baikal spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits. The encounter happened at a depth of 50 meters, and the divers tried to catch the strangers. Three of the seven men died, while four others were severely injured. "I think about underwater bases and say: why not? Nothing should be discarded", says Vladimir Azhazha. "Skepticism is the easiest way: believe nothing, do nothing. People rarely visit great depths. So it’s very important to analyze what they encounter there". Meanwhile Russian Navy officials have denied the collection of UFO-related encounters exists. A source in the Navy’s service staff said the story may have its roots in the reports of vessel commanders, which describe locating objects of unclear but Earthly origin. "An illusion of a UFO encounter can result from large fish shoals, floating garbage, or natural phenomena", ITAR-TASS news agency cites the source.
Via The Local: Three women from the feminist activist movement Femen entered a mosque on Södermalm in central Stockholm on Saturday morning, baring their breats and chanting "No sharia" and "Free women". The women are reported to originate from Egypt, Tunisia, and Sweden. Femen is originally a Ukrainian women's group that applies "sextremism" to draw attention to equality and democracy issues. This group seems to be very active all over the whole world. I think these women show that leftwing people are very courageous. This also shows that Sweden is a country where free speech and democracy work. I can hardly see protesters like these women to be able to speak topless in other countries' city centers for several minutes, or enter mosques topless like they can here in Sweden.

An ancient scrap of papyrus makes explicit reference to Jesus having a wife, according to a renowned expert in Christian history. Harvard divinity professor Karen King unveiled the 4th-Century Coptic script at a conference in Rome, according to BBC News. She said researchers had identified the words "Jesus said to them, 'my wife'", which might refer to Mary Magdalene. Christian tradition holds that Jesus did not marry - but Prof King said in early years it was subject to debate. The provocative find could spark debate over celibacy and the role of women within Christianity, she added. Both the New Testament and at the non-biblical gospels contain evidence of Jesus' marriage to Mary Magdalene. In the Gospel of Philip a passage reads, "There were three who always walked with the Lord: Mary his mother and her sister and Magdalene, the one who was called his companion". Another passage in The Gospel of Philip that concerns Mary is the most suggestive: "And the companion of the Savior is Mary Magdalene. But Christ loved her more than all the disciples and used to kiss her often on her mouth. The rest of the disciples were offended by it and expressed disapproval. They said to him, 'Why do you love her more than all of us?' The Savior answered and said to them, 'Why do I not love you like her?' When a blind man and one who sees are both together in darkness, they are no different from one another. Then the light comes, then he who sees will see the light, and he who is blind will remain in darkness". Jesus Christ might very well have been married to Mary Magdalene because Mary was a close follower of Him, and accompanied Him on His journeys, helped to support Him financially, learned from Him, remained faithful to Him even in His darkest hour when His male disciples fell away, was the first to see Him after the resurrection, and was the first person in history to announce to others the good news that Jesus is risen.

Via The Sun: A couple are believed to have fallen to their deaths when a window they were having sex against gave way, say reports. The horrific accident allegedly happened in China when the glass pane shattered. The tragic man and woman are then understood to have hurtled to their deaths. Eyewitnesses said the couple both fell to the ground as they clinched on to each other. A source in China said: "With the two of them holding each other tight, they fell out of the building". Shocking photos in China appear to show the couple on the ground under sheets. Blood is splattered near their bodies on the pavement. Medical staff and what appear to be police officers can also be seen examining the scene. The man and woman are thought to have fallen out of an apartment in the city of Wuhan, central China. Local sites suggested windows in the building were of poor quality.

Via Disclose.tv: Astronomers discovered a solar system packed with planets three of which are habitable -- meaning in the zone around the star where liquid water could exist, making them possible candidates for the presence of life. The Gliese 667C star is orbited between five and seven planets and is part of a triple star system known as Gliese 667. "We identified three strong signals in the star before, but it was possible that smaller planets were hidden in the data", said Guillem Anglada-Escudé of the University of Göttingen in Germany, who led the study. "We reexamined the existing data, added some new observations, and applied two different data analysis methods especially designed to deal with multi-planet signal detection". "Both methods yielded the same answer: There are five very secure signals and up to seven low-mass planets in short-period orbits around the star". The Gliese 667C solar system is strikingly similar to ours and the three planets identified as habitable are confirmed to be super-Earths: planets that have more mass than Earth but less mass than larger planets like Uranus and Neptune. The star is just 22 light-years away in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). This is quite close to our solar system, astronomers said -- within the Sun’s neighborhood, so to speak -- and much closer than the star systems investigated using telescopes such as the planet-hunting Kepler space telescope.

Via Disclose.tv: National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower/leaker Edward Snowden has given encoded files containing an archive of secret NSA files to several people, Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald told Eli Lake of The Daily Beast. Snowden has taken extreme precautions to make sure many different people around the world have these archives "to ensure the stories will inevitably be published", Greenwald told The Beast. He added that the recipients "cannot access them yet because they are highly encrypted and they do not have the passwords. [But] if anything happens at all to Edward Snowden, he told me he has arranged for them to get access to the full archives". Greenwald recently told CNN that he knows Snowden "has in his possession thousands of documents, which, if published, would impose crippling damage on the United States’ surveillance capabilities and systems around the world". And Snowden himself said this to the South China Morning Post: "If I have time to go through this information, I would like to make it available to journalists in each country to make their own assessment, independent of my bias, as to whether or not the knowledge of U.S. network operations against their people should be published".

Via The Telegraph: Silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to seven years in jail after being found guilty of abuse of office and paying for sex with a woman allegedly working as an underage prostitute. The former Italian Prime Minister was also banned from holding public office for life. Three judges in the court in Milan found the former prime minister guilty on both the charges he faced, handing down their decision after more than seven hours of deliberation. The convictions were a bitter blow for Mr Berlusconi and his supporters, with his close allies denouncing the court’s verdict as "absurd" and describing it as a "a coup d’etat" by an allegedly Left-wing judiciary. "It is shameful, it is a political sentence that has nothing to do with justice", said Daniela Santanche, an MP from Mr Berlusconi’s conservative party and one of his foremost cheerleaders. Mr Berlusconi, 76, was accused of abuse of office and paying for sex with Karima El Mahroug, a Moroccan-born nightclub dancer nicknamed Ruby the Heart Stealer. The abuse of office concerns calls he made to a Milan police station in May 2010 to have Miss El Mahroug released from custody on a theft charge. Prosecutors said Mr Berlusconi was terrified that police would find out that the young woman, who was 17 at the time, had been attending his so-called “bunga bunga” parties at his villa outside Milan. He allegedly wanted to hush up his relationship with Ruby, who prosecutors said attended 13 of the parties, starting on Valentine’s Day, 2010. He told the police in Milan that Ruby was the granddaughter of Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian leader, and that she had to be released in order to avoid a diplomatic incident with Cairo. Prosecutors had asked for Mr Berlusconi to be sentenced to six years in prison. They also wanted him banned from public office for life. The prosecution alleged that more than 30 glamorous young women attended Mr Berlusconi’s parties, performing strip teases and erotic dances in an underground "bunga bunga" room which featured a stage, a bar and a small dance floor. They allegedly "touched the intimate parts" of Mr Berlusconi, who in turn touched them intimately, according to witness statements compiled by prosecutors. The then Prime Minister allegedly gave the women thousands of euros each time to attend the parties and perform sexual acts. He allegedly lavished tens of thousands of euros on Ruby. Prosecutors insisted she had sex with him in exchange for the money. She always denied that and insisted she had never worked as an escort. Mr Berlusconi is certain to appeal the conviction and pending the appeal will not go to jail. If he loses that, he will have recourse to a second appeal, which would be heard by Italy’s Supreme Court. The whole process could drag the case out for years.
Via The Sun: Police in Sweden are hunting a man who was caught on camera having sex with a bicycle. The cycle shagger was caught in the act after the bike's owner set up a CCTV camera outside his house to find out who had been slashing his tyres. Footage of the bizarre bike bonk shows a hooded figure straddling the rear tyre, while clutching a piece of paper. The man then punctures a tyre and masturbates while it deflates. Police in the city of Ostersund are probing a possible link to a similar string of crimes that occurred in the area back in 2007. Then a 35-year-old man was arrested for allegedly slashing the tyres of twenty bikes, before ejaculating over the saddles. Meanwhile, the bike's owner Per Edstrom insists he doesn't hold any grudges - he just wants the mystery man to leave his beloved bike alone. He said: "I am not scared of him, just irritated over all the punctures I have had to fix. This man is probably completely harmless - bicycles are just his thing".

Via The Times Of Israel: Four Jewish Israelis were arrested at the Temple Mount Wednesday after praying in the Jerusalem compound, considered Judaism’s holiest site. The four prostrated themselves at the site, prompting police to detain them and escort them to a nearby police station for questioning, police said. Under current laws, Jews are allowed to ascend the mount and pray at the site, which is revered as the location of both ancient Jewish temples. However, police have the right to veto any visits and in practice prevent both prayer and high-profile Jewish visits.

A Byzantine cross by the sea marks the border between Mount Athos in northern Greece and the 21st century. Prayers have been offered in its monasteries every day, with no interruption, for more than a thousand years. It was set aside by ancient emperors to be the spiritual capital of Orthodox Christianity and has probably changed less over the centuries than any other inhabited place on the planet.

Via France 24: Turkish police stormed Istanbul’s Gezi Park on Saturday with tear gas and water cannons after Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued an ultimatum to protesters to leave the site, which has been the epicentre of nationwide protests. Thousands of people took to the streets of Istanbul overnight on Sunday, erecting barricades and starting bonfires, after riot police firing teargas and water cannon stormed a park at the center of two weeks of anti-government unrest. Lines of police backed by armoured vehicles sealed off Taksim Square in the center of the city as officers raided the adjoining Gezi Park late on Saturday, where protesters had been camped in a ramshackle settlement of tents. Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan had warned hours earlier that security forces would clear the square, the centre of more than two weeks of fierce anti-government protests that spread to cities across the country, unless the demonstrators withdrew before a ruling party rally in Istanbul on Sunday. "We have our Istanbul rally tomorrow. I say it clearly: Taksim Square must be evacuated, otherwise this country’s security forces know how to evacuate it", he told tens of thousands of flag-waving supporters at a rally in Ankara. "One million people to Taksim" - a call for more anti-government demonstrations later on Sunday - was a top-trending hashtag on Twitter.

Via The Sun: A Doctor Who fan who took a photo of a full moon was stunned to see the perfect silhouette of a Tardis traveling in the sky. For Dr. Who fans, it bears a curious resemblance to the Tardis, Dr. Who's time machine. John Raymond had zoomed in to capture the moon’s brightly-lit surface when he spotted a tiny, dark object whizzing by. He snapped a few frames and later spotted the unidentified flying object’s uncanny resemblance to the doctor’s time machine. The object has a bright light glowing at the bottom, giving the appearance of the Tardis flying upside down. The 55-year-old was in the front garden of his home in Littlehampton, West Sussex, when he took the photo. He said: "I was at home when I looked out the window and saw the moon was beautiful and bright". "I thought it would be fun to try and take a picture. I started taking pictures and then I noticed something traveling from the south to North". "I tried to get a picture of it and the moon in the same frame but it was traveling so fast, it was only there for around two minutes before it was gone out of sight". John, who has watched the BBC show since it first aired, continued: "I didn’t think I had got it until I downloaded the pictures and saw it". "Then I said to my wife 'doesn’t it look like the Tardis?' "I have watched Dr Who since I was about six and remember the Daleks, Mechonoids, and Ice Warriors, and so I immediately thought it looked like it". Despite the spooky sighting, it's not uncommon for hot air balloons to take night-time flights near John’s home.
Via The Sun: Michael Jackson’s death has been declared an accident — by his own ghost, a court heard. Jacko, 50, was said to have told Lionel Richie’s ex Brenda that he inadvertently killed himself. The claim was revealed in LA by Randy Phillips of gig giants AEG — blamed by Jacko’s family for the Thriller star’s demise. They are alleging negligence and blame the company for hiring doctor Conrad Murray — since jailed for giving Jackson a fatal sedative overdose in 2009. But AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips stunned the wrongful death trial by claiming Jacko had insisted from beyond the grave that his death was an accident — and cleared Dr Murray. He told jurors at Los Angeles County Superior Court: "Brenda called me to tell me that she was in communications with Michael, either through a medium or directly". She said Michael told her it wasn’t Dr Murray’s fault — that he had accidentally killed himself. Many in the court burst into laughter, but judge Yvette Palazuelos let the testimony stand. Phillips, who once managed chart star Lionel, was responding to questions about an email he sent in August 2009 suggesting Murray was not to blame for Jacko’s death at 50. He wrote to an AEG colleague: "I think I know what MJ died of and this would exonerate Conrad". Phillips said he could not recall what he meant. But after questioning he offered up the spooky explanation. A Jackson family lawyer objected, calling it triple hearsay as Phillips was relaying a conversation with Brenda, who had spoken to a medium who allegedly contacted the late singer. But the judge rejected this. Black or White singer Jacko was pals with Lionel, 63, and Brenda, and godfather to their adopted daughter Nicole, 31. Case continues.

Via Disclose.tv: Teenagers from every generation will always find a way to behave in a way that completely confounds adults from generations prior. Flagpole sitting, music festivals, planking, and others have been curious yet mostly safe ways for kids to act out. Yet there are other dangerous trends out there that teenagers pick up that are more than confusing - many of which can be frightening and dangerous. A new story this week describes one such trend called "Oculolinctus", or eye-ball licking, which has become all the rage in Japan. Website Naver Matome (translated by Japan Crush) first pointed out this trend earlier this week, as one sixth grade teacher from Japan accidentally discovered why many of his students were showing up to class with eye patches. The teacher, known only as "Mr. Y", said the faculty at the school wasn't too worried when several students began showing up to class with styes, eye infections, and eye patches. When the staff asked some of these students individually why they were wearing these patches or how they had gotten the infections, they indicated that it wasn't a big deal. However, once 10 students from the same class showed up wearing eye patches, the staff demanded answers. Mr. Y tells the story of how he accidentally stumbled upon the eye-licking kids: "After class one day, I went into the equipment store in the gymnasium to tidy up. The door had been left open, and when I looked inside, a male pupil and a female pupil had their faces close together and were kind of fumbling around", writes Mr. Y in his account of his experience with oculolinctus. "Could it be bullying? I wondered, but when I had a good look, the boy was licking the girl's eye! Surprised, (I) shouted "What are you doing? Stop it at once!" and the two of them were so shocked they jumped apart. The girl burst into tears, and the boy just went bright red and was shaken up". These sixth graders were reluctant to explain themselves to Mr. Y, but they eventually told him they had just started dating and eyeball licking is a popular way to show affection, like kissing or petting. The staff asked the rest of the class if eyeball licking was, in fact, a new trend, and one-third of the kids expressed they were participating in this activity. This behavior is clearly dangerous, of course, and can spread bacteria that causes pink eye or other diseases. "You're potentially traumatizing the eye", explained Dr. Robert Noecker, an ophthalmologist from Connecticut who spoke with MedicalDaily. "You can knock cells off and easily scratch the cornea, which can lead to a corneal ulcer that can be blinding". As for why these kids are engaging in this behavior, Dr. Noecker says it likely feels good. The eyeball has plenty of nerve endings, meaning the potential for pleasure is high. The potential for risk, however, is just as high. Though this particular story originated in Japan, a cursory YouTube search will reveal teenagers from all over the world over several years videotaping themselves licking one anothers' eyeballs. Dr. Noecker worries that impressionable teenagers may begin to see more of these videos and try oculolinctus for themselves. If this happens, there could be an even larger outbreak of pink eye amongst the world's youth.

Via Before It's News: Our planet’s magnetic field periodically flips its direction, with the magnetic North and South Poles switching places. Such a reversal could wreak havoc on human society — and there’s now reason to think one could happen soon… in geological terms, at least. If nothing else, it’s been an unusually long period since the last reversal — the geological evidence suggests the field flips about once every 450.000 years, and it’s been about 780.000 years since the last reversal. That in itself doesn’t necessarily mean a reversal is imminent, as there have been past instances where a million years passed from one reversal to the next. Just over 200.000 years may not be much time as far as the planet is concerned, but it would mean the chances of humanity having to deal with a magnetic field reversal in even the long-term future remain extremely low.

Costa Rica is now a hub of Chinese power. Something the United States is certainly keeping an eye on. Do not forget that this includes a $900 Million line of credit for an oil refinery on the Caribbean coast.

Although there is of course no plans as of yet to do so, yet….

Via The Local: In their plush Manhattan apartment, Sweden's Princess Madeleine and her future husband, Anglo-American Christopher O'Neill, live a life far away from the Swedish throne. The youngest child of King Carl XVI Gustaf, the Duchess of Hälsingland and Gästrikland, is unlikely to ever become the nation's head of state, being fourth in the line of succession behind her sister Victoria, her niece Estelle and her brother Carl Philip. Her distance to the royal castle widened in 2010, when she moved to New York to nurse a broken heart after breaking off her engagement to lawyer Jonas Bergström. That's where she met O'Neill, a businessman eight years her senior working for hedge fund Noster Capital. At university, Madeleine took courses in art history, ethnology, history and law. Since her first work placement with UNICEF in 2006, her work has focused on children's rights and well-being. In New York, she has a full-time, unpaid position with the World Childhood Foundation, a charity for marginalized children set up by her mother in 1999. A modern, unpretentious style has helped the Swedish monarchy stay popular but Madeleine's penchant for glamorous fashion and a reputation for partying has tarnished her image in the egalitarian Nordic country. Her hobbies reflect an upper class background: horse riding, art, theater, and skiing. The soon to be 31-year-old was the least liked member in a survey carried out by TNS-Sifo in December last year. On a scale of one to five, she scored just 2.8, compared with 3.0 for her brother, 3.3 for her father and lagging her sister's 4.2 points. Pollster Jon Andersson attributed the result to "the fact that the princess has not had an especially strong presence in Sweden and didn't appear in the media", unlike Victoria, whose every move in Stockholm is closely followed by journalists. The announcement of the engagement in October revived some of the media's interest in her, especially since little was known about O'Neill. Elisabeth Tarras-Wahlberg, a former director of the royal court's press department, told daily Svenska Dagbladet the New York financier was "a stable person, mature". But O'Neill sparked controversy in November last year when he made an obscene gesture at a paparazzi photographer. "Chris does not seem to understand his role", historian and family friend Herman Lindqvist told tabloid Aftonbladet. Since then, many Swedes view the London- and Switzerland-raised securities analyst with suspicion. He has declined taking a royal title, which would require him to become Swedish and give up his job, and the couple are expected to return to New York after their honeymoon.

Via Disclose.tv: A witness in New Jersey has suggested that mass abduction by manipulative extraterrestrials have been occurring in the region. The witness talks about possible communication with alien beings on 20 May, 2013 at 12:00 AM. This report has been obtained from a testimony included in the database of Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), published on 22 May, 2013. The witness tells us that he has always been sceptical about aliens and then he describes what he saw. "I’ve always been a skeptic of aliens and UFOs, up until two nights ago, and I feel lost and confused, that’s why I am here. I would like to start off by telling you that about 3 weeks ago I saw an unidentified flying object that looked like a fireball in the sky". The witness describes how he was abducted by aliens and found himself tied in a metal bed. "Two nights ago as I was about to go to sleep I saw something in my room through my peripheral vision. I don’t remember going to sleep, but I do remember waking up in a metal room and I was lying on a metal bed and I was restrained". The witness describes how he found that many other people, along with his sister, were also lying unconsciousness on metal beds. "I struggled to turn my head and I saw many people lying in these metal beds just like mine and I focused on one in particular which I realized was my sister, it seemed that everyone was in some state of unconsciousness". The witness describes his reaction to the situation. "At that point I realized that something was very wrong and I was conscious of the scary situation I was in. I started to panic and tried to free myself". The witness talks about being surrounded by aliens. "At that point I realized that I was surrounded by short beings, they were grayish in color and seemed oblivious to the fact that I was trying to fight my way out of the restraints". He describes how another, taller being, appeared out of nowhere. "Suddenly out of nowhere came a bright light and another being appeared, this one was taller and had a more oval shaped head with indentations in it and it was almost tan in color". The witness further describes how this alien communicated with him and told him about how they were looking into our DNA. "It communicated with me telepathically and I asked it what it was doing to us and it said 'We are looking at your DNA'. I asked it why it was doing this to us and it replied 'All humans have alien DNA, but not all humans have the same alien DNA'. The alien informed the witness that they come from Sirius. "I asked it where they were from and it said 'We come from Sirius' and it also told me that they have been coming to me for a long time". The witness finally tells us that the alien disappeared and he found himself in his bed. "At that point it disappeared and my fear returned and I started screaming from the top of my lungs, the next thing I remember is jumping up from my bed screaming waking up everyone in the house. I haven’t slept for 2 nights now....."

Via Disclose.tv: The shocking minutes relating to President Putin’s meeting this past week with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry reveal the Russian leaders "extreme outrage" over the Obama regimes continued protection of global seed and plant bio-genetic giants Syngenta and Monsanto in the face of a growing "bee apocalypse" that the Kremlin warns "will most certainly" lead to world war. According to these minutes, released in the Kremlin by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation (MNRE), Putin was so incensed over the Obama regimes refusal to discuss this grave matter that he refused for three hours to even meet with Kerry, who had traveled to Moscow on a scheduled diplomatic mission, but then relented so as to not cause an even greater rift between these two nations. At the center of this dispute between Russia and the U.S., this MNRE report says, is the "undisputed evidence" that a class of neuro-active insecticides chemically related to nicotine, known as neonicotinoids, are destroying our planets bee population, and which if left unchecked could destroy our world’s ability to grow enough food to feed its population.
