Born1959
Portsmouth, EnglandOccupationAuthor
Journalist
Musician
CryptozoologistOrganizationCentre for Fortean Zoology

Jonathan Downes (born Portsmouth, England, in 1959) is a naturalist,cryptozoologist, author, editor, film-maker, poet, activist, journalist, composer and singer-songwriter, with a background in radical politics and mental health care. He is Director of the Centre for Fortean Zoology. His father, the explorer and Colonial Service Officer J. T. Downes (1925–2006), wrote several books on a wide range of subjects, such as African history, theology and the Devonshire dialect. His mother Mary Downes (née Rawlins) (1922–2002) was a broadcaster and author who published several collections of Nigerian folklore under the pen-name `Yar Kunama`.[1][2][3][4][5]

He is currently (since 1994) the editor of Animals & Men, and since 2012 has been the editor of Gonzo Weekly, a digital music magazine, between 2007-10 was the editor of The Amateur Naturalist (formerly `Exotic Pets`) - a magazine published by CFZ Press, the editor of the online magazine blog `Cryptozoology:Online`, and from January 2003 until August 2007 was the Deputy Editor of Tropical Worldmagazine, a tropical fish magazine published in the UK. From 2012-3 he was the editor of UFO Matrix magazine, published by 11th Dimension Publishing. He has also edited and contributed to several other publications over the years[2][6][7][8]

According to his autobiography and other writings, as a child he lived in Nigeria, and then Hong Kong (then a British Crown Colony), and returned to the UK in 1971, when his father was 'invalided out' of the Hong Kong government. He was educated at Bideford Grammar School, (1971-6) and later West Buckland School (1976-7) from which he was expelled. He worked as a nurse for the mentally handicapped between 1981–90 and between 1990 and 1994 ran the fan club for Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel.[6][9][10]

Since 2012 he has been editor of the Gonzo Daily blog, and the Gonzo Weekly e-zine, both in conjunction with Gonzo Multimedia (formerly Voiceprint Records).

He is active in community work, and for some years was part of the team organising the monthly children's service in the village church at Woolfardisworthy, North Devon. Having suffered from manic-depression for years, Downes is an activist for mental health issues. On 21 July 2007 he married his second wife Corinna Newton Downes.

He has two stepdaughters, Shoshannah (27) and Olivia (25) and a grand-daughter Evelyn (born September 2014)

CryptozoologyEdit

Downes and other attendees of the Weird Weekend, 2005

In 1992 Downes founded the Centre for Fortean Zoology, arguably the world's largest cryptozoological research organization. He is vocal in his opinion that cryptozoology should not be considered to be a branch of paranormal research. Although he has written a number of books on UFOs and other Fortean subjects (sometimes in collaboration with his friend and colleagueNick Redfern), he considers cryptozoology to be a branch of mainstream zoology, rather than anything more esoteric.[11]

BooksEdit

He has written the following books:

Take this Brother may it serve you well (1988)Riding the Waves (with Kim Andrews) (1990)El Grand Senor (with Kim Andrews) (1991)Road Dreams (1993) (1996)The Owlman and Others (ISBN 1-905723-02-4 with Nigel Wright (ISBN 0-9544936-5-6Weird Devon with Richard Freeman and Graham Inglis (ISBN 1-899383-38-7UFOs over Devon (ISBN 1-899383-37-9Weird War Tales with Nick Redfern (2000)Weird War Tales Volume 2 with Nick Redfern (2000)The Blackdown Mystery (ISBN 1-905723-00-8Only Fools and Goatsuckers (ISBN 0-9512872-3-0In the Beginning - Animals & Men Collected Editions Volume One (Ed)(2001)The Number of the Beast - Animals & Men Collected Editions Volume Two(Ed) (2001) (ISBN 0-9512872-2-2 (ISBN 0-9512872-7-3 (ISBN 1-905723-04-0The Call of the Wild - Animals & Men Collected Editions Volume Three (ISBN 978-1905723072The Island of Paradise: Chupacabra, UFO Crash Retrievals, and Accelerated Evolution on the Island of Puerto Rico (ISBN 978-1905723324

His best selling book is The Owlman and Others. In his 2004 autobiographyMonster Hunter, he discusses his years of substance abuse, as well as his achievements as a cryptozoologist. Once described by Nick Redfern as"Cryptozoology's answer to Hunter Thompson Downes has stated on a number of occasions that this aspect of his life is now firmly in the past. His latest book is a re-examination of the Puerto Rican chupacabras mythos, based on two expeditions to the island in 1998 and 2004. In addition he has edited ten annual Yearbooks for the CFZ.

His new book `Island of Paradise` covers in great depth his two expeditions to Puerto Rico in search of the chupacabra and other animals of fortean interest.

Also Nick Redfern's 2004 book Three Men Seeking Monsters: Six Weeks in Pursuit of Werewolves, Lake Monsters, Giant Cats, Ghostly Devil Dogs and Ape-men is a fictionalized chronicle of the adventures of Redfern, Downes and Richard Freeman.

FilmographyEdit

In his autobiography and in other published writings, Downes admits that one of his earliest ambitions was to make films. He has made a few of them over the years, including:

The "Case" for Crop Circles (1997)The Owlman and Others (2000)Eel or no EelThe lair of the Red Worm (2007)The Dragons of Africa (2007)The Savage Land (2008)Mountains of Mystery (2009)Riddle of the Hills (2011)Emily and the Big Cats (To be released 2011)

He freely admits that his first two films are "rubbish", the former of which is "a load of avant garde bullshit", and the second "a seedy art movie; a semi homage to John Waters, featuring gratuitous nudity, violence, and a pre-op transsexual Nazi." His more recent films, however, are part of the ongoingCFZtv project, and are rough-cut `Guerilla Journalism` projects available for free on the CFZtv website,[12] together with some songs from his albums.

On the TrackEdit

In October 2007 Downes announced a new CFZtv project: a monthly webTV show giving all the latest news from the CFZ and cryptozoology news from around the world. It is called `On the Track` and can be found on the CFZtv YouTube channel. The 63rd edition was released on 7 December 2012.

Musical careerEdit

1982 - 1996Edit

During the late 1980s and early 1990s, Downes was active as a musician and performer, mostly with cult art-rock band The Amphibians from Outer Spacewith whom he sang, played guitar, bass and piano. He integrated elements of psychodrama and performance art into the performances. He has been described as being an ungodly cross between Warren Zevon and Steve Harley.[citation needed]

1996-2008Edit

However, after his divorce, which ended eleven years of marriage to first wife Alison in 1996, Downes all but dropped out of the music industry in favor ofcryptozoology, and has since done only four records and a handful of live musical performances.

Records released by Downes include:

The Mistake with The Amphibians from Outer Space (1982)You took me up (1984) (1984)Outside the Asylum with The Amphibians from Outer Space (1990)Breakfast with Brian Storer (1991)Pyramidiocy (1992)SexGodBaby with The Amphibians from Outer Space (1993)The Chicken Sleeps Tonight with The Amphibians from Outer Space (1993) with The Amphibians from Outer Space (1995)Contractual Obligations with The Amphibians from Outer Space (1996)The Weird World with Fr Lionel Fanthorpe and The Amphibians from Outer Space (2000)Hard Sports (2002)Lost Weekend (2003)Twilight over England (2007)BiPolar (2011)The Man from Dystopia (2013)

PoliticsEdit

Downes describes himself as "basically an anarchist".[6] As an artist, and indeed in many other ways he was primarily influenced by anarcho-punksCrass, "not really by the music, but by the D-I-Y attitude." He has always maintained the opinion that "in many ways it is more important to be heard than to get paid for it," and the CFZ, his music and films have always been disseminated along broadly anarchist and libertarian lines.

Dangers of Giant Hogweed-Heracleum mantegazzianum


Giant Hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) contains toxic sap that can cause severe burns.

At 20ft tall with dinner table sized leaves Giant Hogweed is an impressive plant that was once planted in gardens.  However, it is highly invasive and has spread throughout the whole of Great Britain, primarily favouring river banks but also other areas such as parks, cemeteries and wasteland.

The sap of Giant Hogweed contains toxic chemicals known as furanocoumarins.  When these come into contact with the skin, and in the presence of sunlight, they cause a condition called phyto-photodermatitis: a reddening of the skin, often followed by severe burns and blistering.  The burns can last for several months and even once they have died down the skin can remain sensitive to light for many years.

Every year there are press articles about gardeners, contractors, ramblers, children and others that have been hurt by this plant, just like this one:

YELLOW DOG UK AN ARTICLE

What is Yellow Dog UKTM? The Yellow Dog Project was created to bring awareness to dogs who need space while training, recovering from surgery, or being rehabilitated. 1 If you see a dog with a YELLOW ribbon, bandanna or similar on the leash or on the dog, this is a dog which needs some space. 6 Please, do not approach this dog or its people with your dog. They are indicating that their dog cannot be close to other dogs. How close is too close? Only the dog or his people know, so maintain distance and give them time to move out of your way. Why might a dog need space? There are many reasons why a dog may need space. It may... have health issues be a rescue dog being rehabilitated. The world can be a very scary place for these dogs. 3have had a bad experience with another dog or is just not like the kind of friendly dogs which always want to say "Hi!" be a bitch may be in heat be in training be very old and arthritic be nervous or shy and other dogs cause it stress In short, a yellow marker on a dog means it needs some space. This website has been developed to be a fun and informative way of raising awareness of the Yellow Dog campaign. Learn how you can get involved by making a donation or becoming a sponsor. Visit our online store to purchase everything from posters and car window decals to doggie tabards and owner t-shirts.

WHY SEAGULLS MIGHT ATTACK

SEAGULL ATTACKS DOG AND IT DIES

The Mermaid, Woolly Horse, Ploughing Elephants, etc., were merely used by me as skyrockets or advertisements, to attract attention and give notoriety to the Museum and such other really valuable attractions as I provided for the public. I believe hugely in advertising and blowing my own trumpet, beating the gongs, drums, etc., to attract attention to a show; but I never believed that any amount of advertising or energy would make a spurious article permanently successful. - P.T. Barnum Since ancient times, people have been fascinated by “monsters.” The term itself was adopted for mythical creatures but also real animals or humans with anatomical deformities. In the 18th and 19th centuries, such “freaks of nature” were an essential part of every respected collection of natural curiosities, and naturalists described them carefully. As a result, their studies ended up influencing the development of biology and evolution – even the ideas of Charles Darwin himself. 17th century English naturalist Robert Plot summarized this philosophy in his Natural History of Oxfordshire as follows:READ MORE -http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidbressan/2015/07/17/how-animal-freakshows-helped-the-science-of-biology-develop/

What's wrong with me part 2 ...ulna neuropathy

U L N A R  N E U R O P A T H YNeuropathy simply refers to an injured nerve.  The most common medical (i.e.  non-surgical) neuropathy are those seen in Diabetes,  The most common surgical neuropathy is the compressive neuropathy of the Median Nerve as seen in Carpal tunnel Syndrome.   Ulnar Neuropathy most frequently occurs at that point where the Ulnar Nerve passes through the Olecranon Notch of the elbow.  But the Ulnar Nerve can also get compressed in the wrist as it Passes through Guyon's Canal.

    We will focus this section on the most common form of Ulnar Neuropathy known as Tardy Ulnar Neuropathy. 

I.  Anatomy:

    Look at your right arm with your Palm facing up.  Feel the bone on the inside of your elbow.  The Ulnar N. hooks under this portion of your elbow. You can feel the groove the nerve lays in.   This in fact, is your "funny bone."  If you gently tap with your finger along this groove you can often get an electrical sensation.  this electrical sensation is generally abnormal and is not normally present in healthy nerves.  If you have a mild twinge, it  is indicative of early compression of your Ulnar nerve.   An exquisite or prominent electrical twinge (known as a Positive Tinel's Sign) is characteristic of significant nerve compression.

II.  Signs & Symptoms:

    Most people with Tardy Ulnar Neuropathy will have varying degrees of numbness or "pins & needles" sensation from their elbow down into and/or only in the little and ring fingers of the hand.  This can be quite painful, but most commonly is only annoying.  The inability to spread ones fingers (as if playing the piano) is the most common form of muscle weakness seen in Ulnar compression.  This can also be associated with atrophy (shrinkage or withering) of the interosseous muscles of the hand.  Are the the muscles on the top of your hand shrunken so that the tends are very prominent?   Compare both hands.  The tendons on your hand should be seen, but only mildly grooved between. 

III.  Indications for Surgery:

    The most common indication is pain.  Most people can easily cope with mild weakness. Significant weakness which interferes with hand function is the second most commonly seen reason to consider surgery.  

IV.  Surgery:

    The surgical procedure of choice is referred to as an Ulnar Transposition.  As constant stretching and compression of the nerve in the Olecranon notch is the culprit, simply moving the nerve to the topside of the elbow, is often sufficient in stopping pain.  This transposing of the nerve will often stop further muscle wasting as well, but any atrophy present in the hand, is generally irreversible.

Whats wròng with me for those who think not illl



What is Cervical Radiculopathy?

Cervical radiculopathy is the clinical description of pain and neurological symptoms resulting from any type of condition that irritates a nerve in the cervical spine (neck).

Cervical nerves exit the cervical spine (neck) at each level, C1 - C7. Nerves in the neck exit above the designated vertebral level at all levels except the last one (C8 exits below the C7 vertebra), and then branch out to supply muscles that enable the shoulders, arms, hands and fingers to function. They also carry sensory fibers to the skin and muscles that provide sensation.

See Cervical Spine Anatomy and Neck Pain

When any nerve root in the cervical spine is irritated through compression or inflammation, the symptoms can radiate along that nerve's pathway into the arm and hand.

The patient's specific cervical radiculopathy symptoms will depend primarily on which nerve is affected. The symptoms may also be referred to as radicular pain.

See Radiculopathy, Radiculitis and Radicular PainCauses of Cervical Radiculopathy

Any condition that injures or somehow irritates the cervical nerve can cause cervical radiculopathy. The most common causes include:

Cervical Herniated Disc. If the inner material of the cervical disc herniates, or leaks out, and inflames and/or impinges on the adjacent nerve, it can cause a cervical radiculopathy.See Cervical Radiculopathy from a Herniated Cervical DiscCervical Spinal Stenosis. As part of the degenerative process of the cervical spine, changes in the spinal joints can lead to tightening of the space for the spinal canal.Read more: Cervical Stenosis with MyelopathyCervical Degenerative Disc Disease. When the cervical spine degenerates over time, it can result in degenerated discs and a pinched nerve.See Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease

Infrequently, cervical radiculopathy can be caused by other conditions, such as a tumor, fracture or sarcoidosis, which can compress or cause damage to the cervical nerve roots.2

Article continues below

Cervical Radiculopathy Symptoms

Patients with cervical radiculopathy typically feel pain, weakness or numbness in the areas served by the damaged nerve. Pain can be in one area only, like the shoulder, or progress along the entire arm.

The type of pain also can vary. Some patients describe dull, all over pain; others describe the pain as severe burning or sharp. Patients may feel tingling, "pins and needles," or numbness.

See Acute Pain, Chronic Pain, and Neuropathic Pain

Certain neck movements, like bending the neck back, side to side, or rotating it, may increase the pain. Some patients report that pain decreases when they place a hand behind their head; the movement may be relieving the pressure and traction on the nerve root which then lessens their symptoms.

In This Article:

Types of Cervical Radiculopathy

Cervical radiculopathy symptoms differ depending on which nerve is affected. For example, if the nerve root that runs above the C6 vertebra is affected, a physician will use the term “C6 radiculopathy”.

While any patient's specific symptoms can vary widely, the following are common descriptions for the types and symptoms of cervical radiculopathy:

C5 radiculopathy can cause pain and/or weakness in the shoulders and upper arms. Especially may cause discomfort around the shoulder blades. It rarely causes numbness or tingling.C6 radiculopathy (one of the most common), causes pain and/or weakness along the length of the arm, including the biceps (the muscles in front of the upper arms), wrists, and the thumb and index finger.1C7 radiculopathy (the most common) causes pain and/or weakness from the neck to the hand and can include the triceps (the muscles on the back of the upper arms) and the middle finger.2C8 radiculopathy causes pain from the neck to the hand. Patients may experience weakness in hand grip, and pain and numbness can radiate along the inner side of the arm, ring, and little fingers.Cervical radiculopathy.
