Is this a goof or what?
The United Nations, it its infinite wisdom has decided to appoint an Earth ambassador to the Aliens, should they ever show up.
Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN's little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.
She is scheduled to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before - and that means the UN must be ready to coordinate humanity’s response to any “first contact”.

There are many Martian anomalies, some of which were discussed of a recent Mind Set Podcast Round-table, these anomalies cover everything from Pyramids, Faces, trees and glass tunnels.
But moving rocks? Get the fuck outta here!
This particular mystery has recently surfaced thanks to the good 'ol boys over at Above Top Secret, and while this story may have been floating around the Internets for some time, it has only recently caught my conspiring eye.
I'm not really going to get into the whats and whys this particular rock maybe on the move, but just present the pictures as is, and let the MSC readers scratch their collective heads and mumble to themselves as they stumble back the the fridge.
So here goes...

This week the British Government released papers relating to an incident which occurred in January 1974. A thirty year embargo had prevented the public from seeing official findings of what was reported to be a crashed UFO in the Berwyn Mountains near to the village of Llandrillo in North East Wales.
A Government official declared that the incident was of natural phenomena rather than extra terrestrial. To this day, the Berwyn Mountain Incident is still referred to as 'The Welsh Roswell'.
If the event WAS of natural consequences, then why slap a thirty year rule upon it? Mrs. Pat Evans ( Nurse) from the village was adamant in her statements. She was a well respected figure, straightforward and honest.
Her story - together with the statements from Farmer Williams - are not easily dismissible. Nor are the people who continue to step forward, the latest being in 2008 when the Government released papers regarding UFO sightings in the UK, yet not the Berwyn Incident. Click below for a Mindset Special Report from the area around where the incident occurred. Then read Andy Roberts' excellent text on the case.

First there was conventional war. Then there were the Drones Wars. Now we see a new 'sexy' weapon enter the scene - a weapon which will be no stranger to readers of Asimov, Clarke and Roddenberry.
No sooner has the spectre of drones above the streets of the Western ( and Eastern) World been brandished as 'the way ahead for security and overseas operations' than the same boffins of the military complex reveal a weapon to make drones nigh on unusable.
Anti-drone lasers were unveiled at the Farnborough Airshow last week and according to a BBC report, makers Raytheon said
" ...the solid state fibre laser produces a 50 kilowatt beam and can be used against UAV, mortar, rockets and small surface ships. " By comparison, a coffee machine uses 1 kilowatt. Another test, this off the Californian coast, saw 5 x 5 kilowatt lasers down 4 incoming drones without fuss. A spokesman for Raytheon said
" One of the Navy's problems is that the bad guys have UAV's now." How true.
The company refuses to say what distance lasers have, though admit it is a lot further than the current guns mounted on Navy Patrol Vessels.
As we enter a nightmare scenario of war without end, sci-fi writers will be rubbing their hands at possible scenarios.

With the making of Titanic, James Cameron operated remote cameras under the sea to film a world that man could not touch. Then with Avatar he directed a new virtual world in 3d… Now it seems the next logical step is… Mars.
Using remote 3d cameras NASA and Hollywood are talking of filming the Red Planet unlike ever before.
We’ve been here before with the Moon of course and Kubricks association – was it faked? Are we about to see a repeat viewing but on another world? One things for sure – it will be controlled, directed and presented to us in a very skilled and crafted way.
James Cameron got plenty of experience creating an alien world in Avatar. Now the 3D pioneer is looking to test his might with the real deal, Mars, though still in three dimensions. Cameron met with NASA administrator Charles Bolden to pitch the idea of including a 3D camera on the space agency's next generation rover, Curiosity, set to launch toward the red planet next year.

Another reason why we should not be voting for these robber barons.
Hiding speed cameras in horse boxes, ambulances and behind bushes are to become a thing of the past after politicians in the UK gave the go ahead to catch speeding motorists via satellite technology.
The Snooping Society has gone into the space age, with GPS and Number Plate Reading Technology combining to track drivers over long distances and in all weather conditions.
A test called SpeedSpike by the Home Office masters, was carried out in Cornwall and Southwark ( London) and seeks out average speed between starting and stopping points. Soon fines will be issued to drivers slipping over par.
