CERES IS IT A ALIEN OR JUST A MIRARGE

Could dwarf planet Ceres be watching us watching it? As NASA's Dawn spacecraft approaches the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, it seems to be lighting up. Not long after images of Ceres revealed a strange reflective spot, another dimmer one came into view in the latest NASA images, giving the appearance of a spooky pair of eyes peering back at Dawn. So what's going on here? Metallic mineral deposits? The local ice skating rink on an improbably shiny frozen lake in the bottom of a huge crater? A giant Ceresian mirror or solar farm? The answer is...we have no idea. RELATED STORIES This dwarf planet may contain more freshwater than Earth Sharper images of dwarf-planet Ceres show strange bright spots NASA's Dawn gets its best glimpse yet of dwarf planet Ceres The CraveCast fails to grasp the desire to die on Mars "Ceres' bright spot can now be seen to have a companion of lesser brightness, but apparently in the same basin. This may be pointing to a volcano-like origin of the spots, but we will have to wait for better resolution before we can make such geologic interpretations," said UCLA's Chris Russell, principal investigator for the Dawn mission, in a statement Wednesday. As Dawn gets closer, the images sent back of Ceres become more clear and, frankly, more weird. The above image with the two bright spots was taken from about 29,000 miles from the surface of the dwarf planet. Dawn will continue its approach until March 6, when it will enter orbit around Ceres to get better views for a period of 16 months. In the coming months, those strange bright spots should come more into focus, as should the underlying nature of Ceres, which many believe may be hiding more freshwater than we have here on Earth.FOLLOW LINK TO SEE PHOTO-http://www.cnet.com/news/whaa-now-theres-a-second-bright-light-on-dwarf-planet-ceres/

Dutch town takes up umbrellas against rogue owl attacks

Residents in the northern Dutch town of Purmerend have been advised to take umbrellas out at night after a spate of attacks by an owl. Dozens of residents have suffered head injuries over the past three weeks at the claws of the rogue European eagle owl. Two runners were attacked on Tuesday, with one requiring stitches for five separate head wounds. The European eagle owl's usual prey are small mammals and birds. Falconer One of the sites of the attacks has been a home for the disabled. Liselotte de Bruijn, a spokeswoman for the home, told the AFP news agency that residents and workers had suffered at least 15 separate attacks by the nocturnal bird, which remains at large. "During the day there's no problem, but at night we now only venture outside armed with umbrellas, helmets and hats, anything really, to protect ourselves," said Ms de Bruijn. Dutch bank Rabobank has donated umbrellas to the home, and a spokesman for the company told local broadcaster RTVNH that it-read more-http://A European Eagle owl during the annual stocktake at ZSL London Zoo in central London./news/world-europe-31628508

David j pollard interviewed by mark antony raines aka ghostman


Hi Mark

What inspired me - to be honest I cannot remember not being interested in animals/wildlife. It is more like who inspired me ? - four people:- Desmond Morris, Johnny Morris, Gerald Durrell and Sir David Attenborough (Zoo quests etc) and as I grew up I added Alfred Russell Wallace to that list.

I remember had a 'Why and Wonder' book of reptiles that had a picture of a gaboon viper and a gila monster on the front and to this day these are two species that makes me tingle.

As I said I am a lifelong naturalist and interested in wildlife and habitats in UK and all over world. I am now lucky enough to pursue it as a career. When I was 18 mum told me to get a proper job ! so I went to work for the Health Service then Social Service and finally Probation Service - all the time taking time off to carry out surveys. Then in 1998 it all changed I left work went back to college and the rest as they say is history.

As a professional ecologist I have worked for small companies and large multidisciplinary organisations I now work for myself I am a part time lecturer in Ecology/Survey Techniques ID etc at a local college and also carry out professional ecological services - I also carry out my own research into adders and amphibians.

My professional aim is to provide pragmatic ecological advice, my personal aims is to carry on learning about the natural world every day I learn something new (Today I found out from field researchers at Fauna and Flora International that mountain gorillas 'sing' when they are happy ! love it)

The Future: I will keep watching wildlife both in the UK and abroad, one day I would like to write a scientific paper about adders or amphibians

In 2011 we went to Uganda on a family holiday and whilst we were there in Eastern Uganda I found a frog that had never been recorded in Uganda (West African Rubber Frog Phrynomantis microps) It has only been recorded twice in East Africa my record photo etc and a written account from Ethiopia. We are hoping to return next year for further exploration of the amphibians you never know what I might find - I personally think it is an area where little or no study has taken place so it is most likely under recording of species rather than new species but !!!

Like most naturalists I would love to find a new species - and I think that is what keeps us all looking !

I am fascinated by a mystery and that is why cryptozoology interests me

I hope this is what  you are looking for

My very best regards

David

Suicide Forest in Japan-The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

CAN WE HAVE VOLUNTEERCAR SERVICE BACK IN BIDEFORD AREA?

A charity which provides transport to the elderly and disabled has had to shut down due to financial difficulties.
Torridge Community Transport Association issued a statement on Friday saying it was with ‘much regret’ it would cease trading.
A spokesman for the trustees said: “With increasing costs/overheads and declining revenue and funding across the transport sector, Torridge Community Transport Association’s (TCTA) financial position has been deteriorating for some months.
“The organisation has been working hard to try and find solutions to address this and have also worked in conjunction with their main customer, and funder, Devon County Council to try to resolve financial issues.
“Unfortunately cash flow has continued to deteriorate and it has now reached the point where further trading would make it be irresponsible and a breach of insolvency law.
“The trustees therefore have had to make a difficult decision and with much regret, to cease to trade with effect from 30 January 2014 and to instruct Bishop Fleming, Insolvency Practitioners, to assist with placing the company into liquidation.
“It is a sad end to an organisation that has provided a valuable and needed service in the Torridge community.”
TCTA is actively communicating with alternative service providers, to try to salvage some of its services for the community.
This time last year, the organisation took over the running of the Pannier Market Hopper in Bideford, which will now be operated by Beacon Bus.
The Ring & Ride service will continue but will be operated by Ilfracombe Community Transport Association. Passengers requiring the Ring & Ride service will need to telephone 01271 863630.
The spokesman added: “We are working hard to enable the continuation of the Voluntary Car Scheme, and will announce developments as soon as they are known.
“TCTA would like to take this opportunity to thank all passengers, staff and creditors for their tolerance and patience during this very difficult period.YeS not recent news but i thought i would do a little add on bit.My wife and myself and others like us used this service to get to hospital and doctors appoints  now our costs have increased a journey from northam to barnstaple hospital is a lkeast 25 pounds plus one way so appointments are missed.ONE THING I DONT UNDERSTAND IS WHY NO NEW SERVICE ,NO KICK UO ,WHERE DID MONEY GO AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO WISHES TO HAVE AN ANSWER

Dogs Know What That Smile on Your Face Means- A new study lends further proof that your pet can read your emotions

Whether it's with a sympathetic tilt of the head or the excited sweep of a tail, dogs seem to be saying they can sense exactly what we're feeling. Science is still undecided on the matter, although evidence in favor of the idea is stacking up. Now, a new study has found that dogs are able to tell the difference between happy and angry human facial expressions. (Related: "Animal Minds" in National Geographic magazine.) Biologist Corsin Müller of the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna, Austria, and colleagues tested 11 dogs—including border collies, a fox terrier, a golden retriever, a German shepherd, and some mutts—using a touchscreen. The scientists trained the dogs to touch either a happy face or an angry face for a treat. They presented dogs with either the top half or the bottom half of the faces to ensure the animals weren't just responding to a smile or the baring of teeth. Emotions show on all parts of a human face, not just the mouth, says Müller, whose study was published February 12 in the journal Current Biology. "If you're angry, a wrinkle between the eyes shows up," he explains. The shape of the eyes can change too. So if the dogs were truly able to spot an emotion, they should be able to do so regardless of which part of the face they looked at. (See "Can Dogs Feel Our Emotions? Yawn Study Suggests Yes.")-read more-http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2015/02/150212-dogs-human-emotion-happy-angry-animals-science/

World's rarest sea turtle found washed up on Devon beach

A man stumbled across one of the the world's rarest turtles on a Devon beach - and is now keeping it in his freezer. Ben Read discovered the dead Kemp's ridley sea turtle while out on a seaside walk. The critically-endangered Kemp's ridley is the rarest sea turtle in the world, with only 1,000 nesting females left. Mr Read, 28, desperately contacted a friend studying marine biology to help and was told the tiny creature is a Kemp's ridley. Concerned about how rare the turtle was, Mr Read took it back home with him and put it in his freezer while he awaits a visit from a marine biologist who will collect it for further analysis.

"He said that the turtles originate from Mexico, but are extremely rare and are now critically endangered." Mr Read found the turtle on Green Cliff beach, around 10 miles from his house. Hunting first depleted their numbers, but now major threats include habitat loss, pollution and entanglement in shrimping nets. Dr Peter Richardson, biodiversity programme manager for the Marine Conservation Society (MCS), said the turtles would not survive in British waters. "We ask people to keep their eyes peeled for stranded turtles during this stormy weather," he said. "Sometimes freshly stranded turtles can appear dead, but may still be alive and can be rescued. They should not be put back in the sea, as this will definitely kill them. "Instead, they should be moved away from the water to a sheltered place, preferably in a cardboard box out of draughts, and reported to experts for collection.One of two Kemp’s ridley turtles  found in Cumbria and Merseyside, 5,000 miles from their home in the Gulf of Mexico.

Daniel Bautz-Talk Show Host Grand Dark Conspiracy-interviewd by mark antony raines aka ghostmanraines

I was inspired by personal experiences to explore the paranormal. I had my own ideas about what was going on, but also saw that there were many different thought and theories about the ghost phenomena. So, my impetus to start my radio show/podcast was to have an opportunity to talk to people who share similar experiences and what they thought about what had happened seeing if their ideas were more plausible to me than my own initial thoughts. Long answer, but to sum up, like most people that inspiration to explore the unknown was first having my own paranormal experiences. My aims are to show that people who believe in the paranormal aren't all kooks,

Neuropathy is not a single disease - instead, it is a complication found in a number of different underlying medical conditions. It can also be seen without the cause being diagnosed, when doctors called it "idiopathic." The term neuropathy is short for peripheral neuropathy, meaning nerve damage in the peripheral nervous system. Only nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord are involved, so peripheral neuropathy does not include nerve damage in the central nervous system. Contents of this article: What is neuropathy? What causes neuropathy? Signs and symptoms of neuropathy Tests and diagnosis Neuropathy treatment and prevention More information You will also see introductions at the end of some sections to any recent developments that have been covered by MNT's news stories. Also look out for links to information about related conditions. Fast facts on neuropathy Here are some key points about neuropathy. More detail and supporting information is in the main article. Neuropathy is a complication found in a number of different underlying medical conditions. Neuropathy is short for peripheral neuropathy. Three types of nerve can be involved; autonomic nerves, motor nerves and sensory nerves. Physical trauma, repetitive injury, infection, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins and some drugs can all lead to peripheral neuropathy. Most cases of neuropathy are found in people who have diabetes2 (diabetic neuropathy). With neuropathy as a complication of diabetes, up to 50% of people affected may be completely asymptomatic.4,9 People commonly describe the pain of neuropathy as being a tingling or burning sensation.2 Being tested for neuropathy is routine for diabetes sufferers. Whether single or multiple nerves are affected, the underlying cause can, in many cases, be targeted for treatment.2,7 For toxic causes, removing exposure to a toxin, or stopping a culprit drug, will halt further nerve damage.read more-http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/147963.php-my personal story started  in 2001 i have ulna and cerival which affects me via balance,body movements,dizzy like coming off a childrens roundabout most of the  time on gabapentin 300 mg times four a  day.

The village that fell asleep: Kazakhstanis hit by mystery sleeping sickness that causes them to doze for days have fluid on their brains, doctors claim

A mysterious sleeping epidemic that makes residents of a village known as Sleepy Hollow doze off for days at a time is caused by excessive fluid in the brain, according to doctors. Doctors, however, have been unable to identify the cause of the condition that has affected residents in the remote village of Kalachi, in northern Kazakhstan, for nearly four years. Locals say the strange sleeping disorder is getting worse, with nearly 14 per cent of the towns 600 residents having been affected Read more AND VIDEO : http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2876077/The-real-Sleepy-Hollow-Doctors-say-Kazakh-villagers-hit-mystery-sleeping-sickness-excess-fluid-brains.html#ixzz3R4Kalachi and the neighbouring town Krasnogorsk are located beside an abandoned Soviet-era uranium mine that many locals believe is responsible for causing the mysterious sleeping sickness that affects residents vurHtB

Man born with a womb prepares for hysterectomy

A businessman is preparing to have a hysterectomy after doctors discovered he was born with a womb. The 37-year-old Lancashire man discovered he has a full set of female reproductive organs after undergoing scans for suspected bladder cancer. Now the man, who is being called Rob in order to protect his identity, has reportedly been advised by medical staff to have the organs surgically removed, even though it could trigger the menopause. Doctors believe Rob has a rare condition called persistent Müllerian duct syndrome (PMDS). This results in men developing both external male genitalia and internal female reproductive organs. Most cases are diagnosed at birth or puberty, although people can discover they have intersex bodies — also known as differences of sex development (DSD), at any age.

He said: "The diagnosis came as a bombshell. I've never seen myself as anything but an ordinary bloke who has a normal sex life. I was shocked when the consultant said I had a fully functioning set of women's reproductive organs, and I was even having periods. "It appears I could even potentially get pregnant. But I've been told by doctors I'll be having a hysterectomy in the next few weeks.

ANIMAL WELFARE -STAND UP AGAINST POACHERS-Frontline teams 'unaware' of wildlife smuggler tactics

Front-line transport workers largely lack awareness on how criminal networks disguise illegal wildlife products, it emerged at a summit in Bangkok. Customs officials and wildlife trade experts say that educating freight forwarders and handlers of air, ship and land cargoes could help the fight against trafficking. Their recent meeting with transport operators was the first of its kind. "There was a genuine shock (among participants from the transport industry in the meeting) as to the magnitude of wildlife trade and the methods of disguise used by traffickers to transport these commodities," said Martin Palmer, an expert in global trade compliance requirements and international transport. "For example, when a rhino horn is ground down to powder, it's almost impossible to identify the difference between a box of grey chalk and a box of rhino horn powder, from a visual check. "Facts like these came as a big surprise to participants from the transport industry." Wildlife organisations say around 35,000 elephants are killed for their tusks every year, mainly in Africa. The South African government has said poaching of its rhinos reached a record of 1,215 last year. Only around 3,000 tigers are now left across the globe, which is only 5% of what the population was a century ago. Experts say despite international efforts against wildlife trafficking, criminal networks have been adopting new tactics in transporting the illegal goods - which are estimated to be worth up to $23bn annually, according to the United Nations Environment Programme. "And a lot of these people (from the transport industry) said over and over again that a lot of freight handlers lacked awareness," said Tom Milliken, an elephant and rhino trafficking expert with Traffic, an international wildlife trade monitoring network.READ MOREIvory smuggled in a suitcase-http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-31162726

Darla Watkins- INTERVIEWED BY MARK ANTONY RAINES AKA GHOSTMAN

As a paranormal investigator I have traveled to Florida, Tennessee, New York, Kentucky and have set-up investigations as well as been lead investigator on numerous private & commercial paranormal research jaunts.i am on FB and have a few notes that i have written based on some personal research, articles i have read and my views of the paranormal as a whole -- also have a youtube channel with evp's --BarbDarla-- Is this what u had in mind? My childhood home was also home to the builder of the 1800’s; he was a presence in my life & growing up that was just an accepted part of life. There were times the spirit was more predominant than others but remained a silent part of our physical world. I have investigated and researched the paranormal in New York, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida and Georgia; this also includes numerous undisclosed residential investigations. I concentrate on helping the individual understand what is happening in their home and try to help them with their questions and concerns.HAVE THEY CHOSEN TO REMAIN IN A DARKENED PHYSICAL REALM

Be cautious of the level 4 spirits who contact & chat; they may be wanting your sensitivity as a possession of their own – thinking they feel the existence of physical life again; not accepting of their own death or having to examine & see their own physical life before them as they relive the misery, hurt and pain they caused from selfish acts of greed or jealousy against another. 

Ask questions directly; speak to those of the light who seek their guides to find their way; those who want to evolve & move on to another higher plane of existence – they have achieved their purpose of remaining earthbound but have lost their way or they have lost contact with their spirit guide & now reside in the darkness. 
.. spirits/ghosts who still possess the human qualities of anger, greed, jealousy & material possessions will not speak directly about spirit guides or the light that they should seek … giving evasive, nonsensical answers that are irrelevant to the question as they choose to remain in the darkened physical world draining unsuspecting living beings of their energy, sensitivities and causing mischief & meaningless anger, frustration & chaos in day to day living hiding underneath the mask of communication from the spiritual realm; hunting & using an unsuspecting paranormal investigator or researcher’s eagerness to have evidence of the afterlife. 

Do we ghost hunt or do the ghost hunt us?

ART,CRYPTOZOOLOGY AND MAN , A POST OF AN IDEA

Caveman without fully knowing it was the first cryptologist via witnessing the animals,flora,insects in thier time.In what inspired them to create or find art in which we are left with in different   .The earliest evidence of artistic activity, in the form of diagonal etchings made with a shark tooth, was described cultures and forms.Sounds a crazy idea so far folks but the link between art,cryptozoology and man  is thier and i hope by doing this blog post was meant to be a talk originally but don't think anyone would listen too.This post is just to put my idea weather or not i can prove it is more difficult but tahts part of  the fun and deabate .Man came from apes than grow and was art born or a concept.I dont know if an idea already out in the world if so sorry  -here is some info from wiki-  In 2014 on a 500,000 year old fossil of a clam found in Java in the 1890s associated with Homo erectus. [3]
Some archaeologists have interpreted certain Middle Paleolithic artifacts as early examples of artistic expression.[4][5] The symmetry of artifacts, evidence of attention to the detail of tool shape, has led some investigators to conceive of Acheulean hand axes and especially laurel points as having been produced with a degree of artistic expression.
The Mask of La Roche-Cotard has been taken as evidence of Neanderthal figurative art, although in a period post-dating their contact with Homo sapiens. There are other claims of Middle Paleolithic sculpture, dubbed the "Venus of Tan-Tan" (before 300 kya)[6] and the "Venus of Berekhat Ram" (250 kya). In 2002 in Blombos cave, situated in South Africa, stones were discovered engraved with grid or cross-hatch patterns, dated to some 70,000 years ago. This suggested to some researchers that early Homo sapiens were capable of abstraction and production of abstract art or symbolic art. Several archaeologists including Richard Klein of Stanford are hesitant to accept the Blombos caves as the first example of actual art.
Cryptozoology (from Greek κρυπτός, kryptos, "hidden" + zoology; literally, "study of hidden animals") is a pseudoscience involving the search for animals whose existence has not been proven. The animals cryptozoologists study are often referred to as cryptids, a term coined by John Wall in 1983.[1] This includes looking for living examples of animals that are considered extinct, such as non-avian dinosaurs; animals whose existence lacks physical evidence but which appear in myths, legends, or are reported, such as Bigfoot and Chupacabra;[2] and wild animals dramatically outside their normal geographic ranges, such as phantom cats (also known as Alien Big Cats).
Cryptozoology is not a recognized branch of zoology or a discipline of science.[2] It is an example of pseudoscience because it relies heavily upon anecdotal evidence, stories and alleged sightings.[3][4][5]The coining of the word cryptozoology is often attributed to Belgian-French zoologist Bernard Heuvelmans
