Secret Diary of Admiral Byrd?

...30/12/56: FINAL ENTRY:
These last few years elapsed since 1947 have not been kind...I now make my final entry in this singular diary. In closing, I must state that I have faithfully kept this matter secret as directed all these years. It has been completely against my values of moral right. Now, I seem to sense the long night coming on and this secret will not die with me, but as all truth shall, it will triumph and so it shall.

This can be the only hope for mankind. I have seen the truth and it has quickened my spirit and has set me free! I have done my duty toward the monstrous military industrial complex. Now, the long night begins to approach, but there shall be no end. Just as the long night of the Arctic ends, the brilliant sunshine of Truth shall come again....and those who are of darkness shall fall in it's Light..FOR I HAVE SEEN THAT LAND BEYOND THE POLE, THAT CENTER OF THE GREAT UNKNOWN.
Admiral Richard E. Byrd
United States Navy
24 December 1956...

The Mountain - from TSO Photography

The Mountain from TSO Photography on Vimeo.
Follow on: for more photos, videos and updates.

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.
Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories.

The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.

A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April ( and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

Canadian Detained in China Held 24/7 in Handcuffs, Shackles

By , Epoch Times

Sun Qian, a Canadian citizen detained in China, has been held in handcuffs and leg shackles continuously, day and night, since May 5, her sister says.

Sun, a Vancouver resident and Canadian citizen, was arrested in Beijing on Feb. 19 for her practice of Falun Gong and detained at Beijing First Detention Centre.

According to Sun’s sister, Sun Zan, the handcuffs and shackles were removed prior to a visit with Sun by officials from the Canadian embassy in Beijing on May 18. It’s unknown whether they were put back on after the visit.

As vice-president of Beijing Leadman Biochemistry Co., Ltd., Sun often travelled between Vancouver and China. But on Feb. 19, about 20 police officers arrested her at her residence in Beijing and confiscated her Falun Gong books and other personal belongings...

Colorado man takes his dog on incredible adventures

 Colorado man Kelly Lund says that he hopes to inspire other pet owners to explore nature and "make memories" with their own pets. Lund claims that he believes dogs aren't meant to live out their lives in a backyard or inside a house. The Colorado man and Loki, a two-year-old Wolf-dog ( A beautiful blend of Husky, Arctic Wolf, and Malamute ) are taking as many adventures together as possible they can, the kind of adventures that involves deep snow, mountain peaks, and long nights sleeping underneath nothing but as many constellations as they can count.
Lund posts breath-taking photographs of their travels on Facebook and Instagram, carefully composed images that will probably make you want to grab your own dog, lace your boots and head into the wilderness beyond your own front yard. And that's what matters...

JDL partners with Soldiers of Odin on ‘ad hoc’ basis

By Paul Lungen, Staff Reporter Soldiers of Odin Canada and the Jewish Defence League have provided “security” together at protests. PEGIDA WATCH Canada PHOTO

The images of Soldiers of Odin (SOO) that have made the news and been circulated across the Internet are far from flattering. They purport to show members of the club – which has been labeled racist, extremist and Islamophobic – engaged in violence with anti-racist protesters.

Meir Weinstein has seen the images too. The organization that he heads, the Jewish Defence League (JDL), was present at the event April 1 at Nathan Phillips Square, in front of Toronto City Hall, jointly providing “security” with SOO, when SOO clashed briefly with the self-styled anti-racist protesters.

Weinstein believes the Soldiers of Odin have gotten a bad rap.

Both groups had been asked to provide security for Sandra Solomon, a Muslim apostate who has been a vocal critic of Motion M-103, the private member’s motion that called on parliamentarians to condemn Islamophobia and other forms of racism...

An eruption at Bogoslof volcano – one of two to erupt in the Aleutian Islands Tuesday – is its first after more than two months of inactivity, causing ash to fall in a nearby community before drifting south over the Pacific Ocean.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory said Tuesday night's eruption at the volcano about 60 miles west of Unalaska, which began just after 10:30 p.m. and lasted for 73 minutes, sent a plume to an altitude of 34,000 feet...

August 21st, the world will experience the first total solar eclipse to only be visible within US borders. In roughly an hour and a half — less time than it takes to watch a movie — the Moon’s shadow will cross from Depoe Bay, Oregon to McClellanville, South Carolina. And in its path, professional researchers, eclipse-chasers, and citizen scientists are preparing for the big event. Here’s a short sample of the hundreds of experiments happening:..

Osiris and Isis: Reunited in the underworld...

Osiris (Asir) was the first son of Geb and Nut and the brother of Set, Horus (the elder), Isis and Nephthys. He was one of the most prominent gods of the Heliopolitan Ennead, but his worship pre-dated the development of this fairly complex philosophy. Although Atum was installed as the head of the Ennead by the priests of Heliopolis, Osiris was considered to be the king of the underworld, and is the only deity who is referred to simply as "god". This gives us some indication of his prominence and popularity.

 Many of Ancient Egypt's Gods and Goddesses share characteristics and epithets at different times in history. For example, Sekhmet (the lion Goddess of Memphis), Mut, Tefnut and Hathor are all given the title 'the Eye of Ra' and given the task of protecting the sun god. There is often confusion about the different gods known as Horus. For example, Horus the elder was often thought to be the consort of Hathor, while Horus the younger was the son of Isis and Osiris. This is unsurprising given that the Egyptian civilisation survived for over three thousand years, and the religious system was constantly evolving...

We all know that all land in North America is indigenous land, but unfortunately, Native stories and aboriginal information are often left off mainstream travel and tourism guides, maps and digital resources. We also know that there are pockets of the tourism industry that continue to appropriate Native culture and misinform the public on our true history and culture. Fortunately, lots of people and programs are working hard to get the right information out there.

Here Are All the Craziest Exploits of Soviet Special Forces

The Russian Special Forces were created right after the end of the Second World War and have most been involved in covert operations worldwide.

What started off as the Spetsnaz GRU (a part of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Defense Ministry) in 1949 has developed into into a highly diversified structure of narrowly focused special units.

Russia now has units to operate under water, in the Arctic region, mountainous areas, and foreign countries, where tasks might even include toppling governments.

As all activities of the Special Forces are top-secret, we can only talk about the most famous covert operations described in open sources...

Global 'ransomware' attack hits more than 100,000 organizations

The Associated Press

Europol, the European Union's police agency, says the international "ransomware" cyberattack that began on Friday has so far hit more than 100,000 organizations in at least 150 countries.

Spokesman Jan Op Gen Oorth said Sunday that the number of individuals who have fallen victim to the cyberextortion attack could be much higher.

He said it was too early to say who is behind the onslaught and what their motivation was.
The main challenge, he said, was the fast-spreading capabilities of the malware, but added that so far, not many people have paid the ransoms that the virus demands.

He warned that more people may be hit by the virus Monday when they return to work and switch on their computers...

How I Planned And Shot An Erupting Volcano With The Milky Way

Nature has lots to offer for landscape photographers. We love to shoot nature’s paintings. Storms, rainbows, tornadoes, lightning strikes: they’re all a gift from nature that we can play with as a landscape photographer. Volcanoes are one of them, too, especially when they’re erupting. I have been fascinated by volcanoes; they have been on my list to shoot for quite a while. My younger brother recently went to Guatemala for some backpacking and learning the Spanish language. When he sent me some photos of an erupting volcano, my photography senses were immediately triggered. The erupting volcano was called ‘Fuego’ (literally “Fire”). I managed to find webcams and activity on scopes and checked how active Fuego was. According to the history, the volcano has remained quite active, but you had to be lucky to see a lot of eruptions. Still, the idea of meeting up with my brother and shooting a volcano seemed like a good enough reason to go.

When I decided I wanted to go to Guatemala to try and shoot the volcano, I started doing my research on how I wanted my shot to look. Erupting lava is best visible in evening and night, so I was obviously going for that. I researched other shots from this volcano. Most good shots were during a full moon so that you could see the scenery well, lit by the full moon in combination with the lava eruptions. I wanted to try something different. I have always been intrigued with planning and photographing the Milky Way at particular locations. How awesome would it be to shoot the erupting volcano with the Milky Way?...

In China, Unregistered Churches Are Driving a Religious Revolution

China, the world’s rising superpower, is experiencing an explosion of faith. The decades of anti-religious campaigns that followed the 1949 communist takeover are giving way to a spiritual transformation—and among the fastest-growing drivers of that transformation are unregistered churches.

Once called “house” or “underground” churches because they were small clandestine affairs, these groups have become surprisingly well-organized, meeting very openly and often counting hundreds of congregants. They’ve helped the number of Protestants soar from about 1 million when the communists took power to at least 60 million today. Of these believers, about two-thirds are not affiliated with government churches. In other words, Protestants in non-government churches outnumber worshippers in government churches two to one...

We all Have Numbers on Our Arms by Paula R. Stern


The President of the State of Israel is speaking before a ceremony commemorating Holocaust Remembrance Day in Israel.

A rough translation of part of his speech. Missing much but here's a brief overview...

 On January 27, 1945, the gates of hell opened, he tells the audience. The allies had reached Auschwitz. There, they found the youngest immigrant. He was 8 months there. His fater, mother, younger sister and twin sister were murdered. He was 4 years and eight months old. His tattooed number was A2459.

 He was adopted. He grew. He came to Israel. He moved to Israel. He married and brought children into this world. He died last month. In his name and in the name of all of you - we have returned home and from this place, we will never be lost. May their memory be blessed.

 The Prime Minister of the State of Israel (rough translation)...

Last week, it was publicized that the allies knew about the systematic murder of Jews in 1942. Two years more that we had known. Because of this new knowledge, there is a terrible meaning. If they'd done something in 1942 against those concentration camps, they could have saved four MILLION Jews and millions of others.

They knew and they didn't act.  In the hours that they sent our people to the fires, when Mengele was torturing and experimenting. The allies knew and did not act.

Three elements of how this was possible - hatred against the Jews, preference for other actions, and our weakness.

Has this hatred disappeared? No - this hatred continues to spread.

Has the world's priorities changed? This too we have to answer in the negative. Even today, the world continues in silence - Cambodia, Rhodesia, Congo...and even in Syria.

We started a field hospital for Syrians - we've treated thousands of Syrians. We're not silent. The weak wait.

We must be able to defend ourselves, at every minute, against every enemy. And we have the power to do this. This is the greatest job, of every prime minister of Israel. I say this for all of us, the generations the built this country and the ones who continue to build it. We have switched the weakness to strength. A people without defense, to a people who defend.

We excel in intelligence, in strength, in development against anti-Semitism. I say to you, people of Israel, this is a huge overturn. Small nation, a tiny people who lost millions. From where does our strength come - it comes from the spiritual faith of our people. Last week, we met with the ones who lit the candles tonight - each story....

We heard the story of Max Frievler - saved by your father, who carried you on his back. You were the sole survivor. I saw your mother's body, called to your baby sister. A broken little Jewish boy. And at age 14, you entered the Red Army. Max is here with us. Proud, strong, with children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

We heard the story of Moshe Porat - 108080 - you told us that here in Israel, at age 14, you were so proud that you entered the army of Israel, and you looked on the army draft and saw the ID number 108080. Same man. Same number. But the destiny of one so different than the destiny of the other.

More than 10 years ago, I went to Poland. Moshe Porat...Saba Moshe (Grandfather Moshe) went with us. He is such a special man. I'm so glad they gave him this honor. He has worked so hard to make sure we never forget.

Two of the six who will come before our people tonight and mark this day. Every year, they appear more frail; every year, we know we are blessed to have among us those who witnessed. Already, there are those who deny - cursed may they be.

Maidanek. Chelmno. Auschwitz. Bergen-Belsen. Dachau. Treblinka...and so many others. We each carry the tattoo...if not on our arms, then in our hearts.

May the memories of six million be blessed.

Nigel was also described as "an angry wee man and is seriously anti police!" Perhaps he'd merely mistaken the officers for mailmen...

Missiles appeared to be the main theme of a giant military parade, with Kim Il-Sung’s grandson, leader Kim Jong-Un, taking time to greet the commander of the Strategic Forces, the branch that oversees the missile arsenal.

Open spaces are the best hunting grounds for birds like gyrfalcons. Guinness, a six-year-old trained falcon, flexes its talons around the leather gauntlet Jon Groves wears on his forearm. Groves slips off the hood and, with his teeth and spare hand, unties the jesses that tether the raptor to his fist. Guinness leaps and with a few powerful wing beats, climbs aggressively into the sky. Groves flushes a partridge from the wheat stubble and Guinness tucks in its wings and dives.

'The tomb is empty because He is risen!'

Mark 16:1-7
 1And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
 2And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
 3And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
 4And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
 5And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
 6And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
 7But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you.

How this Canadian woman catfished an NBA star and an aspiring model, almost ruining their lives

Shelly Chartier is a soft-spoken Canadian woman who seems so childlike at first that she looks more like a teenager than someone in their 30s.

The 33-year-old lived an isolated life for years caring for her invalid mother inside their small home in the tiny town of Easterville, located in the Canadian province of Manitoba. She only has a 6th grade education and had no contact with the outside world except for a computer and an internet connection.
Given her seemingly simple and very quiet life, it’s hard to imagine that Chartier was the mastermind behind a massive “catfishing” scheme that launched an international criminal investigation and, authorities say, almost ruined the career of an NBA star, terrorized an aspiring model in Los Angeles and manipulated several other victims.

“She tends to try and downplay or mitigate what she did, to pass it off on others, to make it seem as if she was just some innocent bystander who got caught up in all this,” said Mike McIntyre, reporter with the Winnipeg Free Press...
