MOAIS - THE LAST ATLANTEANS





LOST WORLDS. Easter Island is an oceanic island which belongs to Chile, famous for its huge stone statues known as moai... Rapa Nui means "Big Island" and the local is also called "Te pito te henúa" (navel of the world) and - even - "Mata ki Te Rangi" (eyes fixed on the sky)... In throughout the island there are about 887 monolithic statues (made ​​from a single block of stone). The largest statue has 10 meters of height and 90 tons...

The Easter Island is a small part of an ancient continent that, today - is underwater: the land of Lemuria. That means those lands belonged to Lemuria. Lemuria was submerged but re-emerged, not once but several times. The Easter Island, one of the highest points of the Lemurian continent, is among the first places to "get out of water" when the ocean levels suffer change - to down...

The Lemurians built huge cities. They used marble and lava. "They carved their own life-size images and with their similarity and worshiped them. Were governed by a "divine king" - (BLAVATSKY, 2001 - 334/335)... they cultivated the arts, sciences and also had the knowledge of the astronomy, architecture, mathematics. Were the Lemurians sixth sub-race that lived this civilization.

"One of those great cities of primitive structure, was all built of lava some thirty miles from the site where Easter Island now stretches its narrow strip of barren soil; a city that a series of eruptions destroyed completely. The most ancient remains of cyclopean buildings are the work of the last subraces Lemurians " (IDEM) .... READ COMPLETE MATTER

The Mystery of the Basque Sovereign




SPAIN/BASQUE COUNTRY. Sovereign - this gold coin is considered the favorite of the Queen of England. It was created in 1489 by order of King Henry VII and his issue was continued until of 1603, reign of Queen Elizabeth I. Its name is because the face of the king is minted on the obverse of the coin.

The "sovereigns" came back to be minted in 1817 and the standard amount of precious metal used in its manufacture was fixed at 7.32 grams of gold. Its approximate value: $ 300. One of these coins well known by lovers of coins, is is under custody of the Ertzaintza - (Basque police forces) in Vitoria - (capital of the basque province of Alava).

The police is requesting the cooperation of citizens to find the owner of the object (and for this reason is publishing the case and the photo of the jewel in the Spanish newspapers). After all, no one filed a complaint of theft of this object

This sovereign, in particular, inlaid in a ring, was with part of stolen material found in possession of a gang of thieves who acted - by invading houses - in the capital of Alava (or Araba - one of three provinces that make up the Basque country). This coin was minted in 1958 and has the characteristic inscription in Latin: Elizabeth II, Queen by God's grace.

The "sovereigns" circulated even the early twentieth century. In 1914 were taken out of circulation, when Britain abolished the use of gold in their currencies. However, this type of coins was still produced in very limited quantities.

Finally, its production was terminated in 1932. However, in 1957, the Royal Mint resumed his coining to combat counterfeits coming from Italy and Syria. However, these latest exemplars were owned - almost exclusive - of colecionares and gold investors.

The Basque police still informs - that all the gang assaults occurred in the center of the capital of Alava, Vitoria - on "Gasteiz avenue", its environs and in other places like Arana, St. Lucia and Judimendi. The assaults happened always when the owners were out from home.

Prepared for the End of the World




BRAZIIL. At Rio Grande do Sul state, the city of St. Francisco de Paula, is to 112 km distant of Porto Alegre (capital of the state) to 907 meters above sea level. Considering this characteristic, the altitude, the prefect Decio Colla, who is a scholar of geophysics and astrophysics, is touting the city as a adequate place to escape a possible end of the world - according to the Mayan calendar. The "End of a Time" that can occur on December 21 this year (2012).




Decio Colla, the prefect: Is important to be prepared


Mr. Colla claims: ... the first world countries are preparing for possible disasters ... We can not wait anything happens. We must act ... He said the city already receives new residents. Persons who fear seeing confirmed the prophecy of the Maya. He don't know - yet - the number of the people that already arrived. If I could, the prefect ensures - he already would taken providences - for protection better the population.

As a public man, it is difficult to do anything at the moment. I can not stock the school lunch because I have to submit accounts zeroed at the end of each month. Even those who do not believe, they should be prepared. There are numerous factors that lead us to think that this can be confirmed. In other countries this concern already exists, but not in Brazil. We are not even paying attention in solar storms that affect our planet" he warned.





Trader in the city, Luiz Henrique Valim is an example of someone who has already took some providences for the case of any disaster that come to happen. At home, he claims to have a stock capable of feeding 50 people for a year. According to him, are 108 kg of rice, 40 kg of beans , 108 meters of textile fabrics, among other things



In addition to be prefect of San Francisco de Paula, Decio Colla is also a physician and works in hospitals in the mountainous regionof the state. For him, these solar flares hitting the earth can be an indication that the planet is entering a new phase. "Someone that is a biophysical knowsthat our whole planetary system is changing. With these changes, it is possible the occurrence of natural disasters ."

By being well above sea level, is very difficult that a tsunami come to reach the Serra do Rio Grande do Sul. Still thus, the mayor saysthe region is not free from danger. "What can reach the Sierra are tremors, storms, things of that nature. Anyway, we must be prepared," he says. "It is clear that each one takes its decision. What I want is to have a clear conscience, because if I have a lot of information, I have to pass them" - he added.

The Eternal Lamp & The Windmills




USA/WORLD. The most famous lamp of the world is installed in a firefighters station in Livermore, California. Is alight to 111 years. Uninterruptedly. Its power is 60 watts but currently uses just over 6% of that potence. It is an object that arouses the curiosity of scientists for an obvious reason: their longevity in operation.

With over a century old, this lamp appears in Guinness Book of Records, and - now - has been studied by a Spanish businessman of Cordova, Benito Muros. This man intends to design a lamp with the capacity to work forever.

The eternal lamp will be underpinned by the concept of obsolescence "un-planned" It means that the product is projected to not break, to do not suffer a colapse after a calculated time. Mr. Muros explained that the eternal lamp is of organic nature, not generate waste and can to save more than 92% in the electricity bills.


However, when speaks of the eternity of the lamp, Mr. Muros is using hyperbole. But, he ensures that, if successful, your lamp will can work during a life; 100 years without problems - counting on a wiring adequate and well maintained. The secret of this durability is to use iron with low carbon content.

Mr. Muros said that the conductors of current lamps are made of iron that have high carbon the carbon, with time, suffers microruptures causing the fatal failure of the device. He comments: Many manufacturers claim that their bulbs can last 1.000, 1.5000 or 2.000 hours, but no one is controlling the time to confirm these claims. In fact, many times, a conventional lamp burning in the same hour in which it is installed.

Mr. Muros already has a line of lamps "eternal" for domestic use and public. One of these lamps for domestic use has a potence of 60 watts but consumes only 6 watts. The cost, that can still considered high, is 26 euros. But the durability worth the price. For while, the lamps are handcrafted and the manufacturer guarantees that your product has no competitor similar throughout the world.

The inventor is essentially against so-called programmed obsolescence. He says: Today, many industries [by obvious interest] create their products with planned obsolescence. Objects are programmed to become useless after a certain time. We want to encourage other manufacturers to abolish this policy. Much of the current economy is based on this policy that compels people to buy electric and electronic products because they break, inevitably, after some time. [I will permit to me a comment: evidently, Mr. Muros discovered gunpowder!]




THE EXHAUSTING CULTURE OF THE CONTINUOUS UPGRADE

The idea is not new. The propaganda that spreads the idea that a product has become obsolete even before it be broken, that the consumer needs a more modern model of a new object, this ideology - feeds, for over two centuries, the economy of the mass consumption of all kinds of goods. Mr. Muros has good intentions but, as Don Quixote of Cervantes, his battle has everything to be inglorious. He fights a world of windmills and windmills are insensitive.

Humans, individuals, by contrast, are sensitive. They are sensitive - even too much - to the appeals of the adverts: the a launch of car the year, new "generations" of computers, mobile phones, the fashions invented of all genres. Many advertising messages - reach the extreme of cruelty, seeking to make the citizen feel ridiculous or minor, if he or she can not buy this or that newly released product.

The desire for novelty, even if only a new look on something old, comes to the extreme distress of compulsion. There are people so impressionable, so impressionable that they are able to transgress the bounds of legality, committing crimes to get the things that are advertised in the media as news, many of them simply unnecessary, dispensable.

The planned obsolescence reaches up human creatures: it is necessary to buy a new body, a new face because men or a women could be considered obsolete beings - too; objects destinated to the garbage, to the attics of societies. It is the delusion of postmodernity. A mental illness called consumerism.

Archaeologists unveil the Naylamp's legend



In the tomb, located in the complex-Chotuna Chornancap, were
found
120 objects including ornaments made of gold, silver and
copper.
Archaeologists believe the remains belong to Cetemi,
the
wife of Naylamp - the mythical hero of a pre-Columbian nation
of Peru.

Peru rewrites history books once more with ancient archaeological find
Naylamp’s temple discovered in Lambayeque.
The Legend of Naylamp


PERU. In October, last year (2011), archaeologists from the National Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology "Enrique Bruning" (Museo Nacional de Arqueología y Antropología) of the region Lambayeque made ​​an extraordinary discovery. They found a grave with 120 objects, including ornaments and emblems made ​​of gold, silver and copper as well as 116 pieces of pottery.

In principle, the scientists did think that they had found only one more of the leaders of the Lambayeque culture, which according to oral tradition was founded by the legendary Naylamp, but after excavations patients were surprised to perceive that the remains were not of a man but of a woman.

Then, they remembered that, according to oral tradition, the Huaca Chornancap was dedicated to the wife of Naylamp, Cetemy. Now, many already assume that the found may belong to this legendary woman.


However, archaeologists are cautious. They want to investigate further to give a definitive opinion. They expect to complete the laboratory testing. If confirmed the age of the remains, it means that the bones have about 1.250 years, which reinforces the theory of identity Cetemi.

In this case, is necessary a review of the conceptual approach of Lambayeque culture. Until then, it was considered that at that time and in the midst of this people, only the men that exercised political and religious powers received the funeral honors consistent, in function - with the importance of social position they occupied.

But the finding of a woman buried with the pomp of a queen, along with valuables, can demonstrate that the feminine sex could posses more social relevance than was previously supposed.





THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL COMPLEX
OF THE CHOTUNA - CHORNANCAP

The Huaca* de Chomancap is located 10 km west of Lambayeque**. It is a platform made of mud bricks. It has 70 meters long, 50 wide, 25 tall and is surrounded by 21 acres of building infrastructure that would have been audience saloons, warehouses, workshops, homes and cemeteries.

Archaeologists, on the basis of popular traditions and previous evidence, they say that in this place, called Huaca, is located the Palace of Cetemi. With base in this information, is assumed that her tomb could be there. The identification of body found will can - finally - confirm the legend which thus becomes part of the history.


* HUACA. Sacred place in the pre-colombian peruvian culture

** LAMBAYEQUE. Yampellec or Lampalliqi. One of the 24 departments of

Columbus, The portuguese Spy



Posthumous portrait of Christopher Columbus by Sebastiano del Piombo, 1519


HISTORY. According to academic history - the Americas, especially the lands of Central America and North America, were discovered (or rediscovered) by the Italian navigator Christopher Columbus (1451? -1506). The biography of Columbus has always been mysterious. Although - generally considered to be Italian, born in Genoa this information has always been questioned.

Recently, researchers that investigate the life of the sailor claim to have discovered the true identity and the real historical role of the man who became known as Christopher Columbus. José and Antonio Mattos e Silva (engineers, and like appear, brothers) - according to these scholars, Columbus was not born in Genoa in Italy but in Portugal around the year 1450, a village in the Alentejo - south-central region of the country - called Cuba.

His real name would have been Sancho Anes da Silva - son of the "Infanta"* Leonor of Portugal - future empress of the sacred Roman Empire and Dom João da Silva Meneses (future Blessed or pious Amadeus)

According to official history, Columbus had his project of to navigate to the West - in search of an alternative sea route to India - rejected the Portuguese monarch of the epoch, Dom João II. The idea was welcomed by the Spanish kings, called the Catholic Kings, Ferdinand and Isabella (Fernando e Isabel). However, the hypotesis is that during all the time in that he had stood dedicated to realize your adventure, Columbus was - in truth - in the service of the Portuguese kingdom, as a spy.


In their conference (realized at Columbus House - Casa de Colombo), in the freguesia** (parish) of Vale do Paraiso (Paradise Valley, a village of Azambuja***), the researchers Mattos e Silva said that - finally, the true identity of Columbus was discovered and revealed that his voyage - in particular, his return to Europe, included the passage unofficial in Portuguese lands before his arrival at the port of Palos, Spain.

The return journey began on January 3, 1493. The logbook (daily of board) omitted a passage in the Azores islands but in any case would have the excuse of a change of course caused by a storm. However, the deviation was beyond and Columbus, without motivation justified, arrived in Lisbon - in March of 1493.

There would have happened their secret meeting with (the potuguese king) Dom João II in Vale do Paraiso (the same place where researchers presented their theory). In addition, he visited his mother, Dona Leonor - that - at the time, was in the Convent of St. Anthony Chestnut, in Vila Franca de Xira.

There - would have happened their secret meeting with (the portuguese king) Dom João II in Vale do Paraiso (the same place where researchers presented their theory). In addition, he visited his mother, Dona Leonor - that - at the time, was in the Santo António da Castanheira Convent (Convent of St. Anthony Chestnut), in Vila Franca de Xira. Only after these interviews, resumed their destination to Spain.




The passage by Portugal and the meeting with the monarch are - indeed - something of suspect. For researchers, Columbus reported his findings to the king Portuguese before doing the same with the Spanish kings. Ensuring thereby, the economic and political advantage to Portugal, acting as a spy

The aim was to influence the decisions of the (Bula Papal) Papal Bull Inter Coetera, promulgated by Pope Alexander VI that - by the regulamentation of the possession of newly discovered lands in the West, would be favorable to the interests of Portugal as regards the specification of the landmarks of the territory.

The Papal Bull was published on May 3, 1493, before of Vatican know the outcome of the voyage of the browser "Genoese". Later, Portugal got an even better agreement with the signing of the Treaty of Tordesillas (Tratado de Tordesilhas).

The Morning Glory Cloud of Uruguay




URUGUAY. A photograph taken on the coast of Uruguay captures the beauty of an elongated tubular cloud (cloud roll in English). The phenomenon that is known as "tubular" or familiar arcus, are formed at low altitudes.

The cold air - that stay concentred on a down level of the atmosphere - this mass, passing by a condensation process - that results of a confront with another chain of hot air - suffer this kind of transformation - in its shape. The mass of air became a long, curve and horizontal line, a tube.

The image of this cloud was taken by Captain Andreas M. Cervo Wurff on the way to Paranagua, Brazil, Montevideo, capital of Uruguay. One of the famous places where is possible to observe these clouds is Quennsland, Australia, where they are called the clouds of the "morning glory".

The mysterious civilization of the Peruvian Amazon (more informations)



According to archaeologist Quirino Olivera Núñez:
This civilization had knowledge of geometry,
developed a social organization elaborated enough
to coordinate collective public works.
See + photos of the archeological in the RPP website


PERUVIAN AMAZON. For over two Centuries of archaeological science, the existence of some kind of advanced civilization - Non-Neolithic - in the Amazon region was ignored and - even - rejected. However, the recent discovery of an archaeological site with unique features in the Peruvian jungle requires a complete review by the researchers. The idea of an untouched ​​forest that has always been Inhabited only by primitive tribes incapable of any more elaborate work, can not more be sustained.

There some time, deforested areas of northern Latin America, especially in the Brazilian state of Acre, began to reveal drawn geometric formations traced in soil : the geoglyphs. But that was not enough to advance the discovery of truth. Recently, step forward changed - in definite - the idea of a virgin amazonian jungle.


Archaeologists found the structure of a temple has 3.200 years of age with a configuration that reveals the remote existence of an ancient nation - people who had lived there and had a knowledge far beyond what was observed among the indigenous primitive, simple hunters and gatherers.

The archaeological site is broad: it includes four provinces of the Amazon region: Bagua, Utcubamba, San Ignacio and Jaen. Reaches the territory of two countries, Peru and Ecuador. The project, therefore, is binational and was authorized by General Direction of Cultural Heritage (Direção Geral do Património Cultural).

The temple has columns distant among themselves at a precise distance of 1.40 meters. It means evidence of a mathematical knowledge, of measures of space and practices of collective work.

The building is of old masonry made ​​of clay and straw, as many of the buildings of antiquity found in the Middle East and Mesopotamia, for example. The construction is decorated with colorful murals where they find themselves represented human figures and abstract themes, as combinations of horizontal and vertical lines.


The architecture, classified as monumental, shows that its builders had, in fact, a significant degree of technological advancement. According to perquisador Quirino Olivera Núñez, to build such a structure with these dimensions and characteristics, including stone columns - that, it is assumed,were taken from the rivers - such work, would require a large collaborative effort led by highly qualified masters.

This finding implies the existence of a sedentary nation, who must had inhabited the region for many years. In addition, the building that is being discovered and investigated in this moment of the search, is characterized as a ceremonial center, religious - meaning that - these ruins are of a people who developed the idea of ​​religion and ritual worship of gods. A culture more complex of that was conceived by the amazonian tribes - in neolithic level, nomads - known even then.

Quirino Olivera Núñez explains - yet - that: In the areas nearby, we have found some graves. We expect to find a tomb of a great character who may have been the leader of this [mysterious] civilization. Finally, the datation suggests that this society was contemporary of the called civilizations - the nation of the peaks of Chavin and an another of the coastal - Caral.

PERUVIAN AMAZON. A team of archaeologists discovered the earliest murals in the Amazon forest in a cerimonial temple of 3200 years, located nearby the city of Bagua in a department of the amazonian Peruvian jungle. The news was published in numerous newspapers of spanish language.

The researchers considered that the finding, which occurred at a place called "Las Juntas", is the first of its kind in all the Amazonian jungle, not only in Peru. The archaeologist Qurino Olivera, head of research, said this is one of the most important discoveries of recent decades.

The paintings were discovered on the inside and outside of a temple which has the shape of a rectangle that has a dimension of about 40 square meters. So far, archaeologists have unearthed a wall of 2.20 meters wide and - even - they found several columns.

The predominant colors are red, white, black and yellow. According to experts, the murals are strong evidence that - in the Amazon - existed a civilization that achieved high levels of technological development.

Despite the torrential rains that occur daily in the area, the murals have been preserved because they remained covered by an impermeable layer of rock and clay 15 cm thick that protected the paintings for thousands of years, the researchers said.

The excavations and studies continue in the area with the permission of the Ministry of Culture of Peru and funding of the Regional Government of Amazonas.

Found: Thyatira. An english Ship sunk on the nineteenth century



VIDEO - Rede Globo de Televisão


BRAZIL. On the coast of Alagoas state, northeast of the country - in the open sea, a shipwreck was discovered. The first images show that the vessel was found wrapped in old fishing nets and other debris.

(On the place, for many years, is practiced fishing of shrimps). Moreover, the structure - was covered by barnacles that formed a crust. (Barnacles are sea creatures and crustaceans - that adhere to surfaces underwater rock formations, the skin of other animals such as whales, for example, and boat hulls.




The rescue of Thyatira


The discoverer of the piece was the diver Fernando Vagner who went to the site only to rescue a net of a fisherman - who was trapped in the depths

Fernando announced his discovery and an expedition was organized to investigate the case. The naval enginner, Francisco Glegiston tells: In this area of the coast the raids were frequent (But, later, was verified that this was not the case). It is an ancient ship (at this point of the investigation, researchers hadn't - yet - the identification of the origin and age of the find)

The investigation continued. The stern was examined. A piece of crockery with inscriptions and a symbol was found - as well a ceramic object. The mast broken revealed that it was a sailing craft, a sailboat. (There hadn't motor).

Finally, taken the proper cares, a big fragment was rescued by means of a cable. The crust of sediment was removed and - then - appeared the figure of a compass rose and the boat's name: Thyatira. The mystery was revealed.

TThe Thyatira was a sailboat from 60 meters in length and three masts. He left London bound for Rio de Janeiro on July 16, 1896 and disappeared or, better, it sank on this point of the Brazilian coast.

In the epoch, according to the reports of survivors, there was a fire on board. The crew could not get to control the fire. It was a very dangerous situation because there was 800 packets of dynamite on board. Given the risk, the commander gave orders of "to abandon the ship". All crew survived. The Thyatira broke in half in a loud explosion that lit up the first hours of the dark dawn

FOXP2 - The Extraterrestrial Gene of the Starchild



Graphic reconstruction of the creature's appearance


STARCHILD
. By this expression stood known the mysterious skull found in Mexico in 1930 in a region called Cooper Canyon by a north-american teenager girl who was on vacation with his family in that country.

The skull was discovered in a tunnel of an old mine in the middle of a pile of debris, rublles. It was not an isolated piece. It was a complete skeleton that fell apart at the touch of the girl. And there were others.



That day she took only two skulls. There was no time to recover the rest. Everything was dispersed by a heavy rain of which, waters flow, washed the cavity. Both objects have become only bizarre memories of a travel. The exemplars remained stored in a box. In early 1990, her discoverer, already an elderly woman, died.

The pieces - then - were passed to the hands of Ray and Malanie Young, of El Paso - Texas, USA. For more than eight decades the question remained an enigma. Human or not? At the epoch in what he was exposed to the public - immediately - attracted the attention of onlookers and scholars.

The reason is obvious: the abnormal shape, humanoid - yes - but not-human or, at least, something abnormal. Many began to say that the skull was proof of the presence of aliens in the past history of the planet.

However, this conclusion was never enough to sustain the idea that the piece belonged to a extraterrestrial being. During all these years, academic scientists have fled of this hypothesis with the argument that the vagaries of nature are unimaginable. The Starchild skull would be, after all - only the result of genetic an abnomalia, but certainly, human.

Over the past thirteen years the fossil was analyzed in detail. A project was created for the study of the case, the called "Starchild Project". Now, the technology of DNA analysis could to provide an answer. And it gave

Scientists geneticists, who working on the project - identified the fragment of a gene - that was named FOXP2. The discovery of this gene give credibility to the hypothesis that the skull belongs, in fact, an alien being. An extraterrestrial.

The FOXP2 does not belong to the human genome. The acceptance of this discovery by the scientific community can establish that the Starchild is one of the greatest discoveries of this Civilization.


DETAILS

Many special features make of Starchild an object truly extraordinary Some features are notable: the occular orbitals very large, the nostrils very small, the anomalous shape of the skull. Other features, however, only appear in more specific tests: the bones are much stronger than those of an ordinary human being, are richer in minerals and, in spite of its size (and name), Starchild was not a child when died, it was an adult.


STARCHILD PROJECT

The skull that causes so much controversy has a project and a website dedicated to publishing information about it. In the homepage is written, for example, that the fossil has an age of approximately 900 years old, a conclusion obtained by the method of carbon-14. The test was held at the University of California at Riverside

The project, which began as an informal initiative, has existed since 1999. Its founders are Malanie and Ray Young, who became owners of the object. They hired the scientist Anthony Lloyd Pye (American, born in 1946) to head the research team. On the site can to be found: the history of the discovery, details of the research and numerous videos about the issue, pictures, graphic reconstructions of the creature's appearance, etc..

BRAZIL. A group of bottle-nose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) monitored the travel of the ship "Navio Balizador Comandante Manhães" to the Archipelago of São Pedro and São Paulo, located 1,010 km away from Natal (capital of the state of Rio Grande do Norte). At least ten animals swam alongside the boat, including some puppies.

Those waters attract marine animals such as whale sharks, tunas and dolphins too, which breed in the region. With an area of ​​17 km² and only 18 meters above of the sea level, St Peter and St Paul are an area guarded by the Navy of Brazil, which - by 14 years, has kept a scientific station inhabited constantly by researchers from several universities.



The islands

Only one island, called Belmonte, is inhabited by common islets and contains some type of vegetation. The relay of specialized professionals is made through the work program of the Archipelago of São Pedro and São Paulo (Programa Arquipélago de São Pedro e São Paulo - Proarquipelago), whose maintenance is coordinated by the Interministerial Commission for Sea Resources (Comissão Interministerial para os Recursos do Mar - CIRM), linked to the federal government




The archipelago of St. Peter and St. Paul (São Pedro and São Paulo) is located in a central region of the equatorial Atlantic Ocean. It is composed of five islands and numerous cliffs. The islands are: Belmont - the largest, Challenger, Northeast, Cabral and South. The archipelago's territory belongs to the Brazilian state of Pernambuco

Archaeology: Ancient necropolis found in Rome



Skull found in the necropolis, square Ostiense, Rome - Italy.


ITALY. March 5, 2012. Next to the pyramid Cestia (Pyramid of Caius Cestius or Gaius Cestius* - in Ostience Square) in Rome during the excavations for the installation of a line of urban electric trains, were found an archaeological site. Among the discoveries were found objects such as bones, skulls, pieces of amphorae and also tombs. One of the skeletons that appeared was almost intact with his arms crossed resting on a slab that was, probably, his own grave




The works were suspended and the place, isolated. The relics are being cataloged and placed in plastic boxes. According to preliminary estimates, the remains were dated between the first and second centuries AD. Archaeologists believe they have found a small cemetery.

* Gaius Cestius Epulo or Gaius Cestius Gallo lived in the first century AD. The pyramid, monument of ancient Rome, near the port of Sao Paulo, was built between 18 and 12 BC, to serve as a tomb for Gaius Cestius Epulo, Roman magistrate.

This is an absurd - But it is something for Charles Fort



Mr. Charles Fort

Due the number of hits this blog because of the article below "Machine dated at 400 million years found in Russia" I think that is urgent and necessary investigate a little more. (Here, at Brazil, an academic journalist is a professional that has to has ethic. We are instructed by this way. For this reason, none matter or note is published in this blog without mention the source - like occurs in many others sites and blogs).

I searched that was possible about the issue and discovered this: in fact exist a scientist with the name Yuri Gobulev. I found a profile of him IN [http://www.cmi.univ-mrs.fr/~golubev/].

This man, really appears to be a researcher of some complex issues like: nonparametric and semiparametric, Hidden Markov Models, detection break in time series, inverse problems, stochastic volatility models (I don't understand nothing about this issues).

The profile also presents him like "Directeur de recherche au CNRS". CNRS is National Center for Scientific Research (French: Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique). All indicates that he lives or at least he works in France, and not in Russia like we can think.

This provides some consistency with regard to the contact of a scientist named Y. Gobulev and his declarations - that were published in Italian blog and attributed to a scientist with that name. Note that, the name "Gobulev" appears in the final of the Italian original as if himself, the scientist, was the author and hat sent the matter. This is somewhat strange.


Another important point refers to access to the page where I found the text in italian. Hard to find? For me too. However, "Master-Google" cached shows:

[http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:1rHH7PBQV4kJ:www.zazoom.it/blog_rsc/post.asp%3Fid%3D6857+&cd=2&hl=pt-BR&ct=clnk&gl=br]

Of course, I had the care to save this record.

After all, who can tell if Italian blog editor removed the web page? Until yesterday, 08/03/2012 - I could access the same page easily.


Despite the arguments, that consider - the italian publication - this news - something suspicious - including myself too - I translated and published it in this blog for a reason: fortean spirit. I believe that even with the suspicion that the picture shows only fossils of arcanes organisms, I think that - someone like Charles Fort - will not put this in the trash basket. He collected strange facts reported in newspapers of all the world - even being absurd at first sight. I think that Mr. Fort would put this in a session of your files. (Now, I will work in peace)

Machine dated at 400 million years found in Russia



NEW INFORMATIONS AND BETTER PHOTOS AND SOURCES PHOTOS: 
Machine Dated in 400 Million Years
[http://brazilweirdnews.blogspot.com.br/2012/09/new-informations-and-photos-of-machine.html]
IN 04/09/2012

RUSSIA. In the remote Kamchatka peninsula (map below), 200 km from Tigil, University of St. Petersburg archaeologists discovered a strange fossil. The authenticity of the find has been certified. According archaeologist Yuri Golubev, occurs that, in this case the discovery surprised scientists by its nature, at least - unusual, able to change history (or pre-history).

It is not the first time that is an artifact, an ancient object, something like this is found in that region. But, surprisingly conserved, this specific artifact is - at first glance, inlaid in rock (which is understandable since the peninsula is home to numerous volcanoes). Subjected to analysis, the conjunct showed to be made of metal parts that seem to form a mechanism, a gear which may be of a type of watch or computer. The astonishing is that all the pieces were dated in 400 million! of anos.Yury Gobulev commented:

We got a call from the prefec of Tigil. He told us that hikers that were walking in place, found these remains in rock. We went to the place indicated, and initially we not understand what we saw. There were - hundreds of toothed cylinders which appeared to be parts of a machine.

They were in perfect state of conservation, as if they were frozen in a short period of time. It was necessary control the area, because soon the curious began to appear in large numbers. Other scientists, americans geologists, defined the piece as an amazing and mysterious artifact.

Nobody could believe that 400 million years ago could have existed on Earth even a man [even more a machine]. At that time, the forms of vida were very simple, but the finding, [simply] - clearly suggests the existence of intelligent beings capable of such technology. Certainly, such beings would had come from other planets. It is possible that a spaceship can had was damaged [or there was an accident] and it was abandoned in place



It was found also that the parts have reached to the fossilization state in a period of time historicaly and geologically short. Possibly, the "machine" fell into a swamp. Despite the findings, cautious, scientists prefer to consider that the evidences are not definitive - yet. And Gobulev ponders: Refuse the existence of technology [even in past as indented] is a serious mistake because evolution is not linear.

Rupestre Art - Aboriginal culture in Cuba



"La Solapa de Los Pintores" (something like Screen of The Painters)


CUBA, Pinar del Rio province. Cuban scientists are researching and cataloging human remains and exemplaries of objects belonged to indigenous funerary practices, pictographs and petroglyphs in the Province of Pinar del Rio. Anthropologists are examining human bones and fragments that have a reddish color - wich were found in a hill situated in the town of Minas de Matahambre, northwest of the island.



The president of the Provincial Commission of Speleology - Mr. Carmenate Hilary, explains that these skeletons - pieces of skulls and other bones painted of red - are typical of the natives who inhabited the archipelago millennia ago

According to historian Jorge Freddy Ramirez, the painted bones are considered as a kind of cult of the dead. This practice was part of a magic and religious ritual related to the way of to confront the phenomenon of death, considered by locals as a moment of transition between two stages of existence.

Previous investigations revealed the presence, in the area - of colonial period relics, but the researchers are looking for burial sites associated to communities of the arquipelago of an epoch much more ancient. A research is just beginning. The discoveries made ​​so far will undergo tests to confirm the antiquity of bones, sex, age and perhaps the cause of death of those people.


Initially, the procedure consisted of undertaker bury the body along with offerings and personal belongings of the dead, as tools and ornaments. Later, at the appropriate time, the bones were exhumed and colorful. Then, a second burial was done in a sacred place. The scholar believes that native Cubans believed that life does not end with the death of the body. (An universal belief)


These indigenous were hunters, fishermen and gatherers of natural resources. These primitive men were called Guanahatabeyes. The language that is called Arawak. Other groups from the same area were known like Taino and Ciboney. All of them inhabited a vast territory where they lived at caves, plains and coastal regions

The caves are of particular interest in this research. To care of this aspect, speleologists are performing expeditions in search of pictographs and petroglyphs that remained occult or unknown in caves and rocks have not yet explored. These records may have been produced - both by indigenous of remote times as by slaves and maroons of the colonial period.




Cueva La Iguana


Once found the exemplars will be reproduced and will be subject to a preservation work to spare them from some deterioration, erosion of rains and winds, exposure to the sun, or even by the irresponsible actions of the laity.

Still at the province Pinar del Rio, in a remote place located there 140 km from Havana (Cuba's capital), have been discovered 40 rock art sites, work of indigenous pre-Columbians. In another region, called "La Solapa de Los Pintores" (something like Screen of The Painters), in an another place known as Minas Matahambre, there are magnificent pictorial murals.

"La Cueva del Cura" is also much known. Located in Viñales, there, are various styles overlap suggesting the presence of two races, two cultures: indigenous and maroon. Some of the figures evoke representations of pilots and birds. The grotto of St. Thomas, equally famous, has one of the greatest collections of rock art of Latin America.There, exist curious signs engraved on a wall stone covered by an soot layer.

Atmospheric phenomenon frightens residents of Brazil's hinterlands




BRAZIL, state of Mato Grosso do Sul. Near the city of Vincentina, during one of the many storms that recently fell on Itamarati Settlement Area, residents were startled when, during the night, a strange natural phenomenon occurred. A large cloud appeared illuminating the sky. It was red. It was emitting bright sparks, flaming and had unusual shape.

The visual effect is - really, extraordinary. But it is only an electrical phenomenon that occurs well above the earth and can be perceived at night when a storm is on the distant horizon. These occurrences are called by various names: red sprites, elves, blue jets, gnomes and pixies.

The red sprites explode in the clouds after emit a powerful electric charge in direction to the earth. The weak flares can spread for miles reaching the atmosphere there about 95 kilometers high.

They use to have tube the format or jellyfish, with thin blue rings under them. At its highest point, they can form lightning-shaped disc called "sprite halos." The color red is produced by the ionized nitrogen, the most common gas in the atmosphere. The Sprites can be saw only by milliseconds. Blue jets erupt on top of the core of a storm - the most electrically active region. Cones of narrow are formed and disappear there about 40 km in height

Discovered - North-american rare coin found in a brazilian collection



BRAZIL, Piaui's state. February, 02 of march. That day, a Friday, the photographer and businessman piauiense (born in the state of Piaui; in this case, also resident at the same state) Irineu Fernandes, examining your coin collection - which features more than 300 pieces, discovered a rare coin, valued at 13 million reais (about seven and a half million dollars).

The exemplar, of which - it is estimated - there are only 13 others worldwide is known as "Double Eagle". One of those "Double Eagle" currently is on display at Golsmith's Hall in London.

The Double Eagles were first minted in 1850. They are made of California gold. In 1907, the coins received a new design. They stopped being produced em 1933, when President Franklin Roosevelt resolved to abolish at the country the "gold standard" - to save the economy during the Great Repression, 1929. Most of the gold coins of the epoch - then - were melted in order to stem the financial crisis.

Discovered - The first volcanic cave in Brazil



IMAGES: PARANAShop [look sources]


BRAZIL, Parana's state. It is a ancient scientific dogma: at Brazil - volcanoes do not exist for a long time, so long that there's no more traces of some of them that can have existed in the past.

But, now - in the nearby the city of Palmital, (state of Parana, southeast region of the country), a cave, the first cave that - in its origin was a volcano - was discovered (in February, 20 of 2012). Called Stone House, the cave was a volcano in an epoch determined in 130 millions of years ago. It is located there more than 800 meters in altitude relative to sea level.

The cave that is mainly - formed by basalt rock was - possibly, a volcanic conduit-type giant, hitherto - unknown in Brazil - explains the scholar of Geography, State University of the Midwest (Unicentro), Ricardo Geovane Calixto, a one of the responsible for scientific discovery.

The cave that is mainly - formed by basalt rock was - possibly, a volcanic conduit-type giant, hitherto - unknown in Brazil - explains the scholar of Geography of the State University of the Midwest (Universidade Estadual do Centro-Oeste - Unicentro), Ricardo Geovane Calixto, a one of the responsible for scientific discovery.

Geovane, along with the teachers of the Federal University of Santa Catarina (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina - UFSC), Wellington Barbosa de Silva and Eliza do Belém Tratz, made ​​the speleological and geological reconnaissance of the area. They will start exploration in the coming days. For them, a discovery of this type of cave is a the beginning of a study on the origin of the formation of the called - Third Plateau of the Serra Geral (Serra = geological formation, something like Sierra or mountain range).




The volcanic caves, also known the lava tubes are formed during the eruption of volcanoes. After going through the surface - provoking the forming of rivers of lava - the exposure to the cooling in the surface of earth, results in the solidification of the lava,

By this way, appears a crust that will be becoming increasingly thicker, until the formation of a tunnel made of solid lava. To the extent that decreases the flow of liquid rock mass, the tunnel begins to stay with the configuration of a cavity , resulting in volcanic ducts.

The caves originate from geological processes That may involve a combination of chemical transformations, tectonic, biological and atmospheric. Due to the unique environmental conditions of the caves, this ecosystem has Specialized wildlife to live in dark and without vegetation


The owner of the farm where the "Stone House" cave is located, Basilio Burei, has discovered the geological formation - there 60 years ago, during a persecution of wild pigs. Since then proceeded to call the place of the Stone House.

Mr. Burei tells: "Back then you could see traces of fire inside the cave, trees and plants charred too". Basil, will cede the area to research. According to the Municipal Secretariat of Environment and Tourism of Palmital (Secretaria do Meio Ambiente e Turismo de Palmital), Miguel Burei Sobrinho, some photos of the cave were distributed in social networks and - since then, researchers from more than five states have shown interest in know the place.

This discovery represents a mark for the study of geology in the country and the insertion of Palmital's city in the Brazilian map of the geological science of the country, not only for Brazil's scientists but to foreign researchers too, said the secretary. He also informed that the city intends to partner with universities to increase the incentive for research and tourism in the region.




State Representative (deputy) Rasca Rodrigues (PV - Partido Verde, something like Green political party), requested in 2006 - during his tenure as State Secretary of Environment and Water Resources (Secretaria Meio Ambiente e Recursos Hídricos) - an official study of 260 registered caves in Paraná. The study was conducted by the Speleological Research Group of the State.

Still according Mr. Rasca: This is a heritage that must be preserved. This cave is a proof of Palmital that sustains the knowledge that our state has its geological formation consists of volcanic eruption. In the coming days we will go present a project of law to protect the Parana caves (all of them - the caves of the surface and the underground caves. A specialized company will map the region.

The Secretary adds: The study conducted in 2006 showed that many caves located near urban areas have been damaged by the lack of a conservation policy. If all the caves of Paraná were in the hands of people like Mr. Basil Burei, we would not have this preoccupation.


* NOTE OF the EDITOR OF THIS BLOG: The Secretary could have avoided the last observation. This is wrong. The council has - yes - the obligation of to care of this things, and not stay waiting the citizens, that pay taxes, to make the work of authorities of to preserve the historical and geological heritage of the country.
