Programme 4: Cryptozoology

In this episode of “The Poker”, host Ben Emlyn-Jones looks into the fascinating world of Cryptozoology, the study of unknown animals.

All over the world reports keep emerging of mysterious animals. The most famous are the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot, but there are hundreds of other encounters with strange creatures reported every year.

What’s it all about?

Also in the programme, Ben is joined by Mind Set alumni Trevor Murray for an in depth discussion about everyone’s favourite elusive biped, Bigfoot.

All this and quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein, that great Hospital Porter!

…and occasional amateur part-time philosopher.

Vampire Therapy Could Reverse AgingVampire Therapy Could Reverse Aging
Throughout history, cultures across the globe have seeked the properties of youthful blood, with children sacrificed and the blood of young warriors drunk by the victors.

Now scientists have found that young blood actually ‘recharges’ the brain, forms new blood vessels and improves memory and learning. In parallel research, scientists at Harvard University also discovered that a ‘youth protein’ which circulates in the blood is responsible for keeping the brain and muscles young and strong.

 

Make Yourself Invisible - Company Wants to Make Your DNA UntraceableMake Yourself Invisible – Company Wants to Make Your DNA Untraceable
BioGenFutures, a new company hopes to bring DNA surveillance back to the forefront. The company just announced a product it calls “Invisible,” which attempts to make it harder for authorities to trace left-behind DNA evidence back to people. Not only is the product actually launching to consumers, but they believe solutions of its kind will be commonplace within five years.

A previous project by the company focused on how the physical traces we leave behind in everyday spaces — saliva, skin, and hair follicles — can become liabilities if regulations aren’t put in place to restrict how that genetic data is mined. This new project “Invisible” expands on that work by imagining a future wherein discrimination based on genetics is an everyday fear.

Creepy Staten Island ClownCreepy Staten Island Clown Roaming the Streets
A mysterious clown has been seen lurking on the streets of Staten Island, N.Y., at night over the past week. The “SI Clown,” as the costumed creature has been dubbed, bears a striking resemblance to Pennywise, the evil clown in Stephen King’s classic horror novel and film “It.”

Why would a person dress as a clown and freak people out? There are several possible reasons, ranging from a playful prank to a professional clown innocently returning from a kid’s birthday party. Yet, according to the New York Post, the SI Clown may be a publicity stunt: It seems that the four people who originally posted photos and videos of the costumed creepster not only know one another, but also have links to the same Staten Island-based company that produces horror films. Coincidence? Could be. just think about it…

iBeaconWatch Out for iBeacon – Because It’s Watching You
Last June, Apple’s senior vice president of software, sneaked something big into his Worldwide Developers Conference keynote. On a slide listing features that would debut in iOS 7, an unfamiliar word appeared: iBeacons. An iBeacon is a small module that makes a spontaneous Bluetooth connection with a nearby smartphone to deliver packets of information. In December, stores, arenas, and other venues began to test the hardware, pushing coupons and other location-based information to customers. Like any technology, iBeacon is not inherently good or bad; it’s how we use it that will make the difference.

The trouble is, iBeacon is an all-or-nothing scenario. The only surefire way to turn it off is to turn Bluetooth off altogether—also shutting down the connection to your headset or fitness tracker or smartwatch. But that’s not realistic; we’re attached to Bluetooth. Which means it’s up to individual developers and companies to make the right choices and treat us, our privacy, and our attention with a little respect. Just think about it…

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 -  Is There a Bermuda Triangle Connection?Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Is There a Bermuda Triangle Connection?
As officials from several countries, and dozens of planes and boats, scour the South China Sea and the Bay of Bengal for the mysteriously missing China-bound Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 with 239 people aboard, some people are wondering if there might be some connection to the Bermuda Triangle.

Flight 370’s disappearance is a genuine mystery for now, but just because it has gone missing doesn’t mean that anything unexplained or supernatural happened to it. The search area is vast and remote, and ocean currents can scatter debris great distances. The fate of Flight 370 is unknown for now, but an explanation could surface any day, literally. Just think about it…

Frack, Rattle and Roll - Does Hydraulic Fracturing Play a Role in Quakes?Frack, Rattle and Roll: Does Hydraulic Fracturing Play a Role in Quakes?
How much of a role does hydraulic fracturing play in the startling rise of quakes in the middle of the U.S.? What’s definitely suspicious is the astounding increase in earthquake activity in parts of the central and eastern U.S.—the same areas that have taken part in the fracking boom.

So induced earthquakes are definitely one more reason to worry about the rapid spread of fracking. But their are other concerns—potential groundwater contamination, spills and accidents and stress on small town infrastructures.
