Weird sea creatures discovered in Antarctic A new species of yeti crab piles around the hydrothermal vents in Antarctica. NERC ChEsSo Consortium Scientists doing their first exploring of deep-sea vents in the Antarctic have uncovered a world unlike anything found around other hydrothermal vents, one populated by new species of anemones, predatory sea stars, and piles of hairy-chested yeti crabs. It was "almost like a sight from another planet," said expedition leader Alex Rogers, a professor of zoology at Oxford University. Even in the eye-popping world of deep-sea vents, the Antarctic discoveries stand out, with the unfamiliar species of crabs found crowded in piles around the warm waters emanating from the seafloor. Many of the animals found at the vents have never been found at hydrothermal vents in other oceans, Rogers said. In the dayless world of deep-sea vents, energy comes not from the sun but from the hydrothermal energy generated in the oceanic crust. Discovery in the deep sea New world Livescience.com.
15 Things Kurt Vonnegut Said Better Than Anyone Else Ever Has Or Will | Music | Inventory 1. "I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'"The actual advice here is technically a quote from Kurt Vonnegut's "good uncle" Alex, but Vonnegut was nice enough to pass it on at speeches and in A Man Without A Country. Though he was sometimes derided as too gloomy and cynical, Vonnegut's most resonant messages have always been hopeful in the face of almost-certain doom. And his best advice seems almost ridiculously simple: Give your own happiness a bit of brainspace. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15.

Jicheng 'Kevin' Liu, Charged With Series Of Thefts, A 'One-Man Crime Wave,' Prosecutors Say Police say a Chicago man living in the country illegally stole more than $1 million in merchandise from neighborhood homes, and launched online smear campaigns against theft victims he felt had crossed him. Jicheng "Kevin" Liu, who lived in the city's Lincoln Park neighborhood, was arrested in April on charges of cyber-terrorism after police traced disparaging comments posted across the internet back to him, according to Fox Chicago. Now, after cataloguing the "truckloads" of high-end goods in Liu's home and inside five storage units he rented, Liu stands indicted on 12 new burglary charges. A judge set bond at $500,000 cash on the new charges, on top of the current $100,000 bond that stands for his previous offenses. Authorities say the recovered goods represent more than $1 million in merchandise, including more than 200 bicycles, 100 sets of golf clubs and more than 200 strollers, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The 7 Greatest (True) Johnny Depp Stories Ever Told Somehow Johnny Depp always seems to commits the weirdest crimes. Even when the guy is doing something "wrong", he does it with style. He's never been arrested for doing anything outside of the realm of what you'd expect from him, even with all his money. In 1994, Depp was staying at a fancy New York hotel and completely wrecked his room. Like, furniture everywhere, broken glass, the works. Roger Daltrey (lead singer of The Who) was staying in the room next door and complained of the noise Depp was making. When police arrived at the scene, there was a smashed glass coffee-table and other destroyed, mangled furniture in the $1200-a-night suite. The alleged creature was never found. Johnny Depp's cavalier attitude about his brushes with the law and incarceration make him even more awesome. The other crime Depp was caught committing is just as unexpected, and pretty damn awesome (not including that paparazzi brawl he had, because really, who could stand those people). Source

Air Force UFO Rules Vanish After Huffington Post Inquiry The military deleted a passage about unidentified flying objects from a 2008 Air Force personnel manual just days after The Huffington Post asked Pentagon officials about the purpose of the UFO section. Before the recent revisions, the document -- Air Force Instruction 10-206 -- advised pilots, radar operators and other Air Force personnel on what to do when they encountered any unknown airborne objects. Now in the 2011 version, the reference to UFOs -- which simply means "unidentified flying objects," not necessarily spaceships with little green men -- has been eliminated. What makes this so intriguing is that the U.S. government officially stopped investigating UFOs in 1969 with the termination of the Air Force's Project Blue Book. Air Force AFI 2008Credit: John Greenewald, Jr. -- TheBlackVault.com With that, the military essentially shut the book on flying saucer research, concluding that "nothing has occurred that would support a resumption of UFO investigation by the Air Force."

CRÓNICA SUBTERRÁNEA: Peter Kolosimo -El Partisano Misterioso PETER KOLOSIMOEl Partisano MisteriosoDébora Goldstern© En el gran universo de la Arqueología Misteriosa, Peter Kolosimo ocupa un lugar destacado. Quién fuera uno de los mejores exponentes dentro del género, nació el 15 de Diciembre de 1922, en Módena (Italia) siendo bautizado como Pier Domenico Colosimo. En Civilizaciones del Silencio (1981) encontramos una pequeña biografía: ”Durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, muy joven aún, sirvió en las filas del Ejército Alemán –en los carros de combate -. Posteriormente luchó con las fuerzas de liberación en la Selva Bohemia. De regreso a Italia, dedicóse al periodismo político. Antes de comentar algunas de las obras del estudioso italiano, debemos retomar la época que originó su producción.

Skepticism Skepticism or scepticism (see American and British English spelling differences) is generally any questioning attitude towards knowledge, facts, or opinions/beliefs stated as facts, or doubt regarding claims that are taken for granted elsewhere. Philosophical skepticism is an overall approach that requires all information to be well supported by evidence. Classical philosophical skepticism derives from the 'Skeptikoi', a school who "asserted nothing". Adherents of Pyrrhonism, for instance, suspend judgment in investigations. Skeptics may even doubt the reliability of their own senses. Religious skepticism, on the other hand, is "doubt concerning basic religious principles (such as immortality, providence, and revelation)". Definition In ordinary usage, skepticism (US) or scepticism (UK) (Greek: 'σκέπτομαι' skeptomai, to think, to look about, to consider; see also spelling differences) refers to: Philosophical skepticism Scientific skepticism Media
