The Buzz Log - Search Spikes and Trends Searchers Look Skyward
Tuesday June 28, 2005 4:00AM PT
It's said that "the truth is out there" -- a maxim that's (almost) always true when it comes to search. However, seeking the truth can be daunting and if you have a sneaking suspicion that you're not alone in searching on the subject of UFOs, you're correct. We hovered over the data and found queries on UFOs are up 14% over the past month. But who's buzzin' about those unidentified objects in the sky? Turns out, it's a West Coast thing -- with three of the top four metros for UFO searches floating in from the Golden State. And in another interesting twist, UFOs are a guy thing -- a whopping three-quarters of UFO searches come from sky gazing dudes.
Those seeking indisputable visual evidence of spacecraft sent searches on "UFO Pictures" up 71% over the last month. Although we didn't need to make a trip to Roswell or Area 51, we located the buzz case file on UFOs and came up with some intriguing searches. Investigate if you dare...

It seems that I missed this interesting item in the last edition of the AUFORN Snore Magazine (Thanks to all my AUFORN spies). Well on page 54, Rebekah Prole who thinks she is the “Most hated controversial column this side of the galaxy” sigh…. Well Miss Controversial reports that some evil blog(s) site(s) with “terrorist activity” … sigh, “…tear and defame the reputation of my good friends Diane Harrison, Robert Frola and Bill Chalker”, so you have been spotted or warned, take your pick evil people.
Well let’s start with this, can someone tell the GOOD friend that we think ‘Harrison in now a
And would that evil, shadow, never share data lot stop picking on these wonderful people.
I should say that Miss Controversial is wise beyond anything natural take this pearl - “So the human condition is sadly endemic” – what the hell? And they took $7.95 off me for this, now that’s “sadly endemic”.
Oh this side note: My AUFORN spies have blown the hidden identity of Miss Controversial, remember I share all my data so this is “she” or “it”!
And that was “Without prejudice”… Oh Dear.

cat, creature or Yowie?
Presenter: Vanessa Mills
Footprints fuel speculation on big cats, creatures and beasties near Broome.
A series of unusual footprints found along a coastal creek, south of Broome, have got people speculating about what kind of creature made them.
The tracks were found near the Aboriginal community of Bidyadanga.
Residents have been spooked by the discovery, with people afraid to go fishing at night.
Superstitions and imaginations are in overdrive on the possibility of dragons, dinosaurs and escaped panthers.
The prints are large three toed pads, a bit like a cartoon cat paw, and reputed to be the size of a human foot if not larger.
There are several sets of tracks that walk out of the bush, down to Nabiru Creek and along the edge.
A number of locals have seen them, including police, teachers, and nursing staff. The Conservation Department couldn’t identify the footprints from the photographs nor could track expert Barbara Triggs.
Barbara says the three toe pads are highly unusual and the only animal that has three toes is a bird. She speculates there might be different animals criss crossing the tracks, an animal walking in the same prints.
She says it is very hard to get an idea of the size of the prints from the photographs which were taken without a scale marker; she says to put a camera lens cap or a matchbox beside tracks, and to also take photos of the trail as a whole.
So what could the "Bidyadanga Beast" be?
Someone who is always keen to investigate such mysteries is Tim the Yowie Man, a cryptozoologist.
Tim has never had any reports of strange tracks or big cat sightings from the Kimberley so he is understandably excited by a new mystery.
Tim has seen a lot of footprints in his 15 years as cryptozoologist but these tracks have him bamboozled!
But Tim says he's never ready to write off a mystery until all avenues for investigation have been examined.
And if it is a hoax, Tim the Yowie Man says such tricks give mysteries a bad name.

with six legs and two penises
A little puppy with six legs and two penises has been recently found in a Malaysian temple, in the town of Pandamaran, situated to the south off Kuala Lumpur. According to eyewitnesses, the custodian of the temple found the puppy sleeping near the entrance to the shrine. The man picked the animal up to remove it from the passage, when he noticed that it was a weird many-legged little dog, a six-legged dog, to be more precise.
When the strange finding was examined in the shrine, it turned out that the fluffy creature also had two penises. That was probably the reason why the priests named the dog as Ong Fatt, which translates as Lucky.
Inexplicable anomalies happen rather frequently in the natural world nowadays. A six-legged lamb was born in Holland; a dog gave birth to six normal puppies and one six-legged creature in Brazil.
The puppy named as Lucky currently lives in the shrine, where it was found. Malaysian priests believe that their talisman was sent to them from heaven.

The Tasmanian tiger. Still out there?
There's the Loch Ness monster, the abominable snowman, the mythical Australian big cats and the Tasmanian tiger. A Melbourne man draws the line at the last two because he reckons they may not be so mythical...and the government's not doing enough about it.
Michael Morris describes himself as an independent researcher who monitors such things. He thinks that whilst the Nannup tiger, and the Pemberton panther are difficult to find, we shouldn't discount their existence.
When asked if he has evidence, Michael says: "Not as far as the elusive photograph obviously," he says (but) "I have seen a lot of stock loss that I can't attribute to feral dogs...a lot of full blown dairy cattle rippped to pieces, etc."
busily filing freedom of information requestsMr Morris brings something new to the table in these matters - he's been busily filing freedom of information requests to the various authorities. "It's the same uniform description of the same sort of big cats being seen from Queensland to Victoria over to the west," he says.
Our guest concedes that whilst WA's Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM)does maintain a register of all sightings, they're not pro-active enough. "You won't get the evidence until you start looking," he reckons.
Michael Morris is unsurprised that one of these cat-like creatures hasn't been found. "These big cats are predominantly on public land, and of course if the people that own the land, the government, are not looking for these creatures then there's nobody else out there except amateurs."
Even as an amateur, Michael thinks he's seen sufficient for belief in big cats (as well as Tasmanian tigers) because of "the uniform consistency right across the country of the sightings as far as the consistency of sightings, the time of year," he says.
He concludes by returning to his call to arms: "I would urge CALM to show some leadership on this."

ROSWELL - THE END! - JULY 2005
Interview with Nick Redfern
by Stuart owner of UFOreview.com
"I suppose you could say that UFO Review has a scoop. The man focus of thisissue is an extremely extensive interview with author Nick Redfern about the story behind his new book, Body Snatchers in the Desert: The Horrible Truth atthe Heart of the Roswell Story in which Nick almost certainly offers the definitive explanation about what happened at Roswell. "
Now come on folks when you see "absolutes" like "The End" you’re in for a lot of rubbish! Life is not that magnanimous.
I read the interview and I was right more rubbish to fog the Roswell files. Its full of errors and unless he has some defined or specific files or references the FUGO+ Horten inspired lifting body is just a odd shot in the dark. Lets face it - the Yank in 1947 were off on a trip to space not some Sunday excursion in a wood glider… come on what new technology can one gleam from a wooden glider apart from design features. The yanks were now into ALCLAD not canvas.
Should I purchase the book? Well no I think I will wait on this one.

But back in the bad old days this is what 'George the Genius' had to say about blogs:
Hi Diane,Robert and keith,
It's funny how the cretins who write their crap on their blog sites never have any kind of simple grip on the truth or any regard for it. They go out of their way to distort the truth and to ignore or avoid the evidence.

This is in fact what these sites are for. They are a kind of personal diary site, not intended for scruitny of anyone else but the author. They are like reminders for people who can't remember what they thought 2 days ago. Probably useful for people suffering from Altzheimers ( I'm not sure how to spell that offhand, but that will do, everyone getsthe point)..., or skeptics, or liars who have to remember what they have said. They are not worthy of publication, and it's the people who seek these useless sites out , and who PROMOTE them who cause all the problems. I really don't give a bugger what these people or anyone else thinks.... we just have to question the motives of the people who continually remind us of them, or who keep bringing them out for us to see. These are the shit stirrers who need to be ignored.

Mystery of UFO sighting
Chris Peacock didn't believe in UFOs _ until he saw one two nights in a row. The retired bricklayer was star-gazing while he tried to get back to sleep at 3am on Monday. Instead he saw something that kept him awake until daybreak.
``I looked at the stars and then one of them looked like it moved,'' he said.
``It became bright, then moved up and down and made weird shapes in the sky.''
Mr Peacock, 53, woke his wife and showed her the object.
20-year-old daughter also saw it as she was getting ready to go to work.
said it appeared in the sky north of his CBD apartment, over Mindil Beach and East Point.
had always heard about UFOs and never believed in them,'' Mr Peacock said.
know it wasn't a plane or a helicopter _ it was doing things you know mankind cannot do.''
Peacock said the object continued its apparently random movement across the sky almost until dawn, when it disappeared.
I dismissed it as a strange phenomenon until he saw it reappear yesterday morning.
Whenever I have woken it's been there,'' he said.
You would think someone else would have spotted it.''
Mr Peacock said he hoped more people would come forward if they had seen the object.
I don't know what to believe except that you have to see it for yourself,'' he said.
The Territory is well-known for UFO sightings _ Wycliffe Well roadhouse, 380km north of Alice Springs on the Stuart Highway, once ranked fifth in the world in a study of UFO activity.
In April, tourists took photos of an object flaring brightly as it crossed the night sky in Central Australia.
Experts were unable to identify the object but said it could have been a satellite burning up as it re-entered Earth's atmosphere.

Baloney Detection Kit is not Science As skeptic Dr Michael Shermer would like us to believe, but anything with Michael Shermer logo on it is.
This clown is first class dick head... well nothing seems to be above the 'Shermer Nut' not even theoretical physics? But folks Dr. Shermer received his B.A. in psychology from Pepperdine University, his M.A. in experimental psychology from California State University, Fullerton, and his Ph.D. in the history of science from Claremont Graduate University.
"“The universe is all there is” – we’ve all read and perhaps even repeated this sentence. But cosmology marches on. It now appears that there may be baby universes, bubble universes, parallel universes – at present only intriguing mathematical quirks, though with new instruments like the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatories looking out for faint gravitational ripples in the ether, who knows?"
"Shermer assigns the existence of alternate universes a “fuzzy factor,” or probability, of 0.7.""
What! All this from a psychology nut who now thinks he can grasp theoretical physics - sorry folks nothing new between those ears.
If you have some free play money on hand, then the nut has a new book out...

Would develop mental disorders
BOSTON, June 6 - More than 46% of Americans experience a mental disorder at some point in their lives, with onset occurring by age 14 in half of all cases.
These are among the findings of four studies conducted by Ronald Kessler, Ph.D., and colleagues at Harvard Medical School. The studies were published in the June issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry.
They found that the 12-month prevalence for any disorder was 26.2%, with a prevalence of 18.1% for anxiety disorders, 9.5% for mood disorders, 8.9% for impulse control disorders, and 3.8% for substance abuse disorders.
Of these cases, 22.3% were classified as serious, 37.3% as moderate, and 40.4% as mild. Fifty-five percent of those with a disorder met criteria for only one disorder, 22% for two diagnoses, and 23% for three or more diagnoses.

Vice-Chancellors - stand up and say enough is enough!
With the gathering of the industrial-relations storm clouds over Australian universities, one must see that the pestilence that such clouds will bring to the higher education sector has been partly encouraged by the timidity of the collective known as vice-chancellors.
They have fallen in line behind the Howard Government every step of the way, encouraged by the trappings of prestige and high salaries that the Government has bankrolled for them.
In a mere decade, the Howard Government has changed the once-proud culture of service and the old-trait professionalism of university life, which was once based on full support for staff, students and the community. These institutions have been turned into gross, greedy businesses driven by the profit motive.
Today, students are seen as assets, cultivated for institutional sustainability, on an endless treadmill of courses to pay more and more for the running of the institutions.
Staff are seen as collateral for exploitation and if somehow they are damaged by risky and even crackpot realist Federal Government policies on teaching, learning, research and now industrial relations - too bad. Go along with at any cost, must get the cash!
Is there a vice-chancellor anywhere in the land who will stand up publicly to the Federal Government and say enough is enough?
Current and future waves of staff, students, and the nation at large, will roundly condemn you, one and all, for not doing your real jobs - defending the autonomy of the higher education sector from a nasty, ill-informed, interventionist and, dare I say it, anti-intellectual Federal Government.
You have your test - stand up now and bravely lead us out of this madness.
Don't leave the fight to your unionised staff alone. Don't fail Australian society.

A Briton accused in what U.S. authorities call the biggest successful hacking effort against U.S. military computer networks looking for information on UFOs & Aliens was freed on bail after a court appearance in London.
Gary McKinnon, 39, left, is accused of installing software allowing him to control military computers, including the Army's network for Washington. Lawyers for McKinnon, who was first arrested in the case nearly three years ago and then released, said he would fight extradition. It was not clear why U.S. officials took so long to seek extradition.

"This, incidentally, was why I knew instantly when I spoke with the late Col. Philip Corso that he had some very real knowledge. I have no idea if the details of his story are true or not. I don't much care. Because one thing that IS true, is that he knew the fundamental message of the entity that seeks our companionship. When a "being" was asked what they had on offer for mankind, the reply was "a new world, if you can take it.""

BLOOMINGTON, MN, United States (UPI) -- Minnesota researchers found one in three U.S. scientists admitted in an anonymous survey they committed scientific misconduct in the previous three years.
The survey, conducted by HealthPartners Research Foundation, found 33 percent of scientists admitted breaking rules that are supposed to ensure the honesty of their work, the authors report in the British journal Nature.
The misbehaviors range from claiming credit for someone else`s work to changing study results due to pressure from a sponsor, reported the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
"Our findings suggest that U.S. scientists engage in a range of behaviors extending far beyond
falsification, fabrication and plagiarism that can damage the integrity of science," the authors
write in a commentary in the journal, which is released Wednesday.

Thousands of tiny frogs rained on a town in north-western Serbia, Belgrade daily Blic reported
Strong winds brought storm clouds over Odzaci, 120 kilometres north-west of Belgrade, on Sunday afternoon, but instead of rain, down came the tiny amphibians, witnesses said.
"I saw countless frogs fall from the sky," said Odzaci resident Aleksandar Ciric.
The frogs, different from those usually seen in the area, survived the fall and hopped around in
search of water.
Belgrade climatologist Slavisa Ignjatovic described the phenomenon as "not very unusual".
"A wind resembling a tornado can suck in anything light enough from the surface or shallow water.
Usually it's just dust, but sometimes also larger objects," Ignjatovic told Blic.

It's Raining Frogs
A Serbian village came to a standstill when a downpour of frogs shocked residents into thinking the end of the world was nigh.
Residents in Odzaci told local daily newspaper Blic that a dark cloud appeared above the village,
before a shower of amphibians came pelting down.
Villager, Caja Jovanovic, said: "This huge 'cloud' seemed to come out of nowhere and its shape and colour looked very strange.
"We were all wondering what it was when suddenly frogs started to fall from the sky. I thought maybe a plane carrying frogs had exploded in mid-air."
However, the froggy-phenomenon has been explained away by climatology experts, who say the frogs were merely gathered from a lake by a whirlwind, which dropped them in the village.
