he Pentagon has acknowledged, for the first time, the existence of a program called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.
The program is tasked with investigating UFOs and their potential threats.
Pentagon secretly spent $US22 million
Initially pushed for by Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the program interviewed pilots and military officers who had encounters with unexplained objects over the years. Pentagon gave most of the appropriated $US22 million to an aerospace company owned by Robert Bigelow, a billionaire businessman who is “absolutely convinced” that aliens exist.
Bigelow is reportedly a close friend of Reid’s and originally got the senator interested in UFOs and aliens. He gave money to both of Reid’s senate reelection campaigns in 2004 and 2010.
This is not the first time the US government has investigated UFOs and other mysterious aerospace phenomena. In 1947, the US Air Force launched Project Sign to “collect, collate, evaluate, and distribute within the government all information relating to such sightings, Intelligence official Luis Elizondo led it, and told The New York Times that he resigned in October because he said the Defence Department didn’t take his findings seriously.
Essentially, the US military was studying whether aliens existed. Aliens!
Las Vegas is known as the city of lights and, at one time, that light was the glow of a nuclear detonation in the Nevada desert.
“It turned night into day.” -Allen Palmer, executive director for the National Atomic Testing Museum
Starting in 1951, the US Department of Energy began testing nuclear ordinances just 65 miles from the city of Las Vegas. At night, the glow of the bombs lit up the sky, and mushroom clouds could be spotted rising over the horizon during the day.
Atomic tourism drew people from all over to see these devices of ultimate destruction. Mushroom clouds showed up on billboards, in hairstyles, and even costumes. There waere beauty pageants as Las Vegas named the official “Miss Atomic Bomb”.
Casinos jumped at the chance to use their roofs for exclusive atomic cocktail parties, and tourism officials posted guides on the best places to watch the bombs. Detonations were even announced in advance to ensure nobody missed them.
“The best thing to happen to Vegas was the atomic bomb.” – Benny Binion, casino owner
A NUCLEAR SOCIETY
Tests continued in the Nevada Desert until 1963, when the US signed a ban on above-ground testing. Despite the ban, over 900 bombs were tested outside the city between 1951 and 1992.
Ironically, all this spectacle and fascination was embedded in the midst of crippling worry over nuclear doomsday. During the same time, children were being told to hide under their desks in preparation for a nuclear attack. Schools even issued dog tags to children so they could be identified in case of an accident at the testing facility.
While the Vegas economy exploded with the bombs, so did concerns about dangerous radiation exposure. Soldiers viewing nuclear bombs showed significantly higher risks of cancer and a high chance of deformity in offspring, but military officials at the time said that residents of Las Vegas could just shower if they were exposed.
A woman in Oregon recently discovered a mountain lion in her living room, which would naturally freak out most people. But instead, this woman says that she “communicated trust through blinking” and used telepathy to get the feline safely out of her home without harming anyone.
It may sound like a far-fetched story, but the woman’s Facebook post explains just how she apparently used these strange methods to get the creature out of her home.
She said that the cat spent more than six hours relaxing behind her living room couch. Taylor then explained that when her housemate saw the mountain lion and shouted, it was startled and became agitated.
o in order to calm the animal down, Taylor “consciously elevated the energy field and entrained her to a theta state” so that it wouldn’t harm anyone. She said that once the energy shifted, the mountain lion was able to calm down and eventually fall asleep.
In her post, Taylor included several remarkable images of the mountain lion snoozing behind her couch, looking relaxed as can be.
Taylor wrote, “When I made noise, she woke up and looked startled so I consciously raised my frequency, gazed lovingly into her eyes, and communicated using feline-speak eye blinking to calm her. It was amazing to realize that this worked. I gazed lovingly then blinked hard and then she did it back! Then, she went back to sleep.”
But after the cat spent hours resting, according to Taylor, she needed to figure out a way to prompt it to leave without startling it and creating a potentially dangerous situation.
Taylor said that she “sent telepathic pictures of the routes out of the house via open doors and the route out the backyard, across the creek, through an open field, and back up into the hills.”
In fact, Taylor was able to take a video of the mountain lion leaving her house to display just how intuitively it was able to find its way back into the wild. Taylor said that she “meditated on how to get her to leave her safe spot behind the sofa” — and apparently her method worked.
Although this situation was tense, mountain lions don’t typically attack humans. In fact, a mountain lion attack is pretty much unheard of — but that doesn’t mean that it can’t ever happen.
