Artificial light and a Healthy Night's Sleep

Quote for the day:

There is no hope for a civilization which starts each day to the sound of an alarm clock
Author Unknown

Back in the 1960's started experimenting with energy fields and how they impacted my daily life. First thing was to remove my watch and then came reading by lots of candle light. Then removed all electric clocks from my bedroom followed by going to bed with the sun and waking up to it naturally (no alarm clock). The benefits to my sleep pattern and regularity of feminine cycles increased - much to my delight.

Here it is 40 years later and modern science has found the inner workings of why artificial light and energy fields are so very harmful to our health. The May 2006 Journal “Cancer Cause Control” again has warned of the danger of the nighttime use of artificial light.

They confirm many previous studies that conclude that suppression of the hormone melatonin by exposing the eyes to light during the night leads to an increased risk of breast cancer and other cancers as well. Scientists have been issuing this warning since the early 1990’s.


For some unexplained reason the media have been very slow to make this information known to those with the greatest need to know, namely cancer survivors and those at high risk because of their genetics. Perhaps the reason is the false belief that there is nothing people can do about it, so why alarm them.

Less well publicized studies by George C. Brainard in the U.S. and James K. Thapan in the U.K. showed that not all colors of light have the same effect on the pineal gland, the source of melatonin. It is the blue component is white light that causes suppression of melatonin. A study lead by Leonid Kayumov, PhD in Canada showed that subjects wearing glasses that blocked the blue light continued making melatonin, even though exposed to bright light, just as they had during previous nights when they were held in darkness.

To avoid the danger of increased risk of cancer, avoiding light all together, or wearing glasses that block the
blue light, for a few hours before bedtime, should become normal practice for everyone, based on these studies.

Some of us just need the sound and feel of running water

Then there are those who can fall asleep sitting

Hacking The Pentagon – Gary McKinnon

Quote for the day:

"I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift,
that gift would be curiosity."
Eleanor Roosevelt
First Lady U.S.A.
(1884 – 1962)

Here is a tale of a curious soul in a world that no longer honors the curious mind. Just a thought on my part – ‘What if a bunch of hackers got curious and released all the nonsense hidden information in computers around this globe? What would our freedom and reality look like after that?”

Somehow it just doesn’t seem morally or spiritually right that a young lad with his whole life ahead of him is being threatened with 70 years in jail by Planet Earth’s war-mongering U.S. of A.

Gary McKinnon is facing extradition to the USA under the controversial Extradition Act 2003, without any prima facie evidence or charges brought against him in a UK court. Try him here in the UK, under UK law.


Here are excerpts and links for more information on this tale:

Hacking The Pentagon – Gary McKinnon

In
The Guardian, Jon Ronson chats with the British hacker Gary McKinnon, who's facing extradition to the U.S. and up to 70 years in prison for his exploits within NASA's and the Pentagon's computers:

He hacked into the
Oxford University network and found the whole business "incredibly exciting. And then it got more exciting when I started going to places where I really shouldn't be. Like "The US Space Command".

McKinnon sat in his girlfriend’s aunt's house, a joint in the ashtray and a
can of Foster's next to the mouse pad, and he snooped. From time to time, some NASA scientist sitting at his desk somewhere would see his cursor move for no apparent reason. On those occasions, McKinnon's connection would be cut. This never failed to freak out McKinnon.

When asked if he is brilliant, he says no. He's just an ordinary, self-taught techie. And, he says, he was never alone. "Once you're on the network, you can do a command called
NetStat - Network Status - and it lists all the connections to that machine. There were hackers from Denmark, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Thailand …every night," he says.

"I found a list of officers' names," he says, "under the heading 'Non-Terrestrial Officers' …. It doesn't mean little green men. What I think it means is not Earth-based. I found a list of 'fleet-to-fleet transfers', and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren't US Navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet."

He was hacking immediately after September 11, 2001, but only because he wanted to see if there was a conspiracy. "Why did the building fall like a controlled series of explosions?" he asks. "I hate conspiracy theories, so I thought I'd find out for myself."

He strenuously denies
the Justice Department's charge that he caused the "US Military District of Washington" to become "inoperable". Well, once, he admits - but only once - he inadvertently pressed the wrong button and may have deleted some government files.

"I thought, 'Ooh, bloody hell.' And that's when I stopped for a while. And then my friend told me about
DARPA. And so I started again."

DARPA is a collection of brilliant military scientists, funded by the Pentagon. DARPA has been widely credited with inventing, among other things, the internet, the global positioning system, the computer mouse, and - somewhat more boneheadedly -
FutureMAP, an online futures market designed to predict assassinations and bombings by encouraging investor speculation in such crimes. The US Senate once described FutureMAP as "an unbelievably stupid idea". DARPA has long been of interest to conspiracy theorists because it is semi-secretive, bizarre and occupies that murky world that lies between science and war.

An excellent video presentation for those who make the time – actual transmissions from our Astronauts in space and our Earth bases. If you truly think we get all the news on television or our mainstream papers - this documentary by a dedicated and curious British Columbia man brings forth new and amazing information on other life forms around us and our space.

Unusual and mysterious news tidbits

Quote for the day:

"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them."
Galileo Galilei
Astronomer & Physicist
(1564 -1642)


Phenomena produce theories, but no answers
What's behind those mysterious booms?

Life can serve up a good mystery every once in a while. Weird things happen that defy explanation that make us wonder how much we really know about the world.

Something of the sort happened in San Diego County shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 4, and so far no one has come forward with an explanation.

Whatever it was, it caused a woman's bed to shake in Lakeside. It created waves in a backyard pool in Carmel Valley. It set off car alarms in Kearny Mesa and rattled windows from Mission Beach to Poway to Vista. At various spots throughout the county, people reported a rumbling sound or a booming noise.

Scientists insist it wasn't an earthquake. The Federal Aviation Administration has no record of any planes producing a sonic boom by breaking the sound barrier.

Something May Be Fishy About Hum Keeping Bay Ridge Residents Awake

HMMMM. This mysterious sound in the waters off Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, has baffled residents for months. A low pitched vibration known simply as the "Bay Ridge Hum" heard near the shore next to the Verrazano Bridge has left some locals not only scratching their heads in frustration but deprived of sleep, too.

While several hypotheses as to the cause - passing trains, treatment plants, even UFOs - have been floated, so to speak, one new hunch is that fish may cause it.

"Everyone is just dying to find out what is making that noise," the district manager of Brooklyn Community Board No.10, which includes Bay Ridge, Josephine Beckmann, said. "We have been getting calls since last spring.

""I heard it two nights in a row at about 3 a.m.," Ridge resident Anissa Malloy said. "My kid woke me up at 3 a.m. yelling and screaming, after I quieted him down and attempted to go back to sleep. ... It's like a very low-pitched vibration. I don't know what to compare it to."

Another Bay Ridge resident, Concetta Butera, said it was in April 2005 that he "noticed this awful noise."

As complaints mounted, local officials attempted to discover the source of the noise that was keeping residents up at night. Even the Department of Environmental Protection tried to solve the mystery, but managed only to eliminate obvious suspects like the Owls Head Water Treatment Facility and a local park that some thought may have been the culprit.

Record meteorite hit Norway

As Wednesday morning dawned, northern Norway was hit with an impact comparable to the atomic bomb used on Hiroshima.

At around 2:05 a.m. on Wednesday, June 7th, 2006 residents of the northern part of Troms and the western areas of Finnmark could clearly see a ball of fire taking several seconds to travel across the sky.

A few minutes later an impact could be heard and geophysics and seismology research foundation NORSAR registered a powerful sound and seismic disturbances at 02:13.25 a.m. at their station in Karasjok.

How does Criss Angel do those amazing things?

Current News and a bit more

Quote for the day:

"Learn to see, and then you'll know there is no end to the new worlds of our vision."
Author & Anthropologist (1925 – 1998)


NASA Hacker Finds UFO Cover Up
He says he spent two years looking for photographic evidence of alien spacecraft and advanced power technology.

Big Bang in Antarctica - Killer Crater Found Under Ice
Planetary scientists have found evidence of a meteor impact much larger and earlier than the one that killed the dinosaurs - an impact that they believe caused the biggest mass extinction in Earth's history.The 300-mile-wide crater lies hidden more than a mile beneath the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Its size and location in the Wilkes Land region of East Antarctica, south of Australia suggests that it could have begun the breakup of the Gondwana super continent by creating the tectonic rift that pushed Australia northward.
Scientists Shed New Light on Invisibility

Fans of J.K. Rowling will recall that everyone's favorite boy magician can vanish at will. Potter just ducks under his magic cloak and swoosh . . . he is gone.

Last week a prestigious journal published two reports from scientists who have discovered how to achieve the same effect without breaking the laws of physics. Invisibility, they argue, is a matter of diverting light around an object so all the light continues on its way instead of reflecting off the object. The reports suggest using a thick shell of high-tech transparent material to do this. Even when looking directly at the object, an observer would see only what was behind it.
