US General Warns of ‘Sinister Force’ Scouting Earth (Rare Audio)
Mar 14, 2020
General Douglas MacArthur was an American war hero and one of the most popular armed service members of the 1940s and 50s. But what few know about him is his strong interest in the UFO phenomenon, so much so that he warned of “sinister forces” beyond Earth three different times publicly in the last 15 years of his life. Two of these warnings were given in speeches — the rarely heard audio is presented in this video. So, what do you think? Was MacArthur’s warning that UFOs were scouting Earth for future invasion just paranoia? Or could it have been a driver of early efforts to militarize space? Let us know in the comments.

New Footage of a Tasmanian tiger
Mar 11, 2020
New Footage of a Tasmanian tiger has been discovered. Three researchers from the Tasmanian Tiger Archives Facebook group, www.facebook.com/groups/Tasma… closely with the staff of the State Library and Archive Service have discovered previously unseen footage of the Tasmanian tiger at Beaumaris zoo.
This historical discovery was made on the 4th March 2020. The researchers are Gareth Linnard, Branden Holmes and Mike Williams. The footage was possibly filmed between 1933-36, by a member of the Bester? family. 9.5 mm silent black and white running time 69 seconds in total. 7 seconds of the Tasmanian tiger.
This sequence adds to the previously known five films from Beaumaris zoo. And two films from London zoo.

A Dogman in Jura France 2018. Dog returns home with a human skull
#BBR Investigations Creatures – Unexplained
Mar 7, 2020
There was complete silence this time, no bird or animal noises. We began to walk in and after a few minutes I felt anxious again. I decided to go back and my friend tried to push on into the trees alone but she also came back running after a short time. The creature was there again. It was standing in the wood, looking at us. I had not seen the creature this time thankfully.
At the end of October 2019 La Dépêche News reported that the golden retriever belonging to a family living near Agen returned with a human head in its mouth after leaving the home for its daily wander. The dog must have detached the skull from a decomposing body to play with and returned to the home with the human head in its mouth. Investigators made a formal statement and explained “This forty-something man died at the place where he was found by the gendarmes, without his head. There are no suspicious circumstances reported.”
More awesome cryptozoological reports from our Debbie, this time the stories are from France. And there are a lot of them, too!
NASA’s Curiosity rover captured its highest-resolution panorama yet of the Martian surface between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019. A version without the rover contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels; a version with the rover contains nearly 650 million pixels. Both versions are composed of more than 1,000 images that were carefully assembled over the following months.
The rover’s Mast Camera, or Mastcam, used its telephoto lens to produce the panorama and relied on its medium-angle lens to produce a lower-resolution panorama that includes the rover’s deck and robotic arm.
Malin Space Science Systems in San Diego built and operates Mastcam. A division of Caltech, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages the Mars Science Laboratory mission for the agency’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington and built the Curiosity rover.
Curiosity Mars Rover Snaps 1.8 Billion-Pixel Panorama (narrated video)
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Mar 4, 2020
NASA Curiosity Project Scientist Ashwin Vasavada guides this tour of the rover’s view of the Martian surface. This panorama showcases “Glen Torridon,” a region on the side of Mount Sharp that Curiosity is exploring. The panorama was taken between Nov. 24 and Dec. 1, 2019, when the Curiosity team was out for the Thanksgiving holiday. Since the rover would be sitting still with few other tasks to do while it waited for the team to return and provide its next commands, the rover had a rare chance to image its surroundings several days in a row without moving. Composed of more than 1,000 images and carefully assembled over the ensuing months, the larger version of this composite contains nearly 1.8 billion pixels of Martian landscape.

Thank God for March. This week we’ll be seeing mid 50s on the termoskan and that is so welcome. I was never a winter person. Still windy af, though. The other day it ripped the flag off the house. Madonne.
Found a cure for my poverty, but, naturally, I’m too poor to implement it. I would need $5,000.00 to get rolling and then it would just keep on truckin.’ Unfortunately, I am exactly $5K short of the $5K needed, so, like everything else in my life, it’s just a painful pipe dream. Maybe after 4 or 5 years, I could save up that much. Theoretically possible, at least. An investing service, it is, but a rather unique one. Half of the 5 would go to them and the other half to open a brokerage account. And like I mentioned, I am 5 short with years of savings to do it. Sucks being poor.

Hannah Yata’s aesthetically beautiful images stand in a stark contrast to her darker subject matter. Inspired by psychology, religion, literature, and her experiences as a woman, the New York based artist calls upon the rich symbolism of the female figure, which she often combines with parts of animals, creating metaphorical hybrid characters. Placing these characters in intriguing scenarios, she explores the depths of our social psychology and draws parallels to modern day issues. In “Dancing in Delirium”, Hannah Yata’s phantasmagorical female creatures and animals embody “the transformative, wild energy of the natural world, tainted with abuse of modern society”.
Teacher Stumbles Upon Baby Bears ‘Dancing’ In Finland Forest, Thinks He’s Imagining It
Physical education teacher Valtteri Mulkahainen from Sotkamo, Finland, has been devoting a lot of his free time to photography. For the past six years, Valtteri has been shooting his country’s wildlife and captured many magical moments. And this is a story about one of them.
On the 3rd of June, 2013, Valtteri was planning to explore the Finnish taiga around the town of Martinselkonen. As the man was exploring the area, he noticed a bear coming into a clearing with a few small cubs.
“The cubs behaved like little children,” Valtteri told Bored Panda. “They were playing, and even started a few friendly fights. I felt like I was on a playground in front of my house, where small children frolic around. That’s how much they reminded me of little children. At one point, the three of them got up on their hind legs and started pushing each other. It was like they were dancing in a circle.”
Valtteri was in a shelter 50 meters (164 feet) away from the adorable action and had the perfect view. “I photographed the cubs with the bear all evening and all night,” he said.
You can bump into a bear pretty much everywhere in Finland except the Åland Islands. Most of them live in the eastern part of the country and Lapland, but people regularly see these majestic creatures in the southern and western areas as well.
Like the cubs have successfully proven us, bears are agile and strong. They use their forelegs very effectively for both hunting and getting around. Moreover, they’re very good swimmers and climbers. Basically, they’re the whole package.
However, the fact that Valtteri managed to get such clear shots of the family is really fascinating. Bear will typically try to avoid humans as best as they can. Humans rarely see them in the wild since these animals almost always retreat immediately after detecting our presence. Keen senses and the ability to move silently make them perfect at this game of hide and seek.
According to the latest assessments by the Finnish Natural Resources Institute, there were between 2020 and 2130 bears before the 2019 hunting season.

Cryptid Sightings And Reports
An interesting photograph has made its way online which some believe may be evidence of the legendary Maryland Goatman. According to the report, the photo was taken in or around the community of Laurel by a man named Ryan Davis.
The legendary creature is often described as a bipedal humanoid with a human male upper body, furry goat-like legs, and horns like that of a goat. There is an urban legend about the creature often known simply at “goatman” which claims the creature was some kind of strange mutant that escaped from the nearby Beltsville Agricultural Research Center and some versions even that it used to be a scientist there.
Here is what the witness who reportedly took the possible Maryland Goatman Photos had to say:
I’m in DC for the GRC summit starting today and was playing tennis Saturday morning at Montpelier Park while some friends played golf at Pawtucket Greens. As we were packing up we saw something on the forest bordering the park. As I took out my camera phone it came up onto two feet and I realized it was a goat. I told some people back in DC about a goat walking on two legs and they said it was some old Maryland Goatman legend. I called WBAL in Baltimore and talked to someone about it but I don’t think they believe me. They think it’s a bear holding a freshly killed goat. They ran the story this morning. As a reader, thought you might enjoy.
Some believe the photo shows nothing more than a bear carrying a dead goat, although that seems to be unlikely. There are plenty of skeptics, many of which believe the photo is nothing more than a hoax and most likely some kind of clever costume. There have been plenty of reported sightings of strange creatures in this area, although most of which are attributed to another elusive cryptid known as Bigfoot. So what do you think could this be an actual Maryland Goatman sighting and goatman photo ? Could this be evidence of the Maryland Goatman?
Inconclusive — at best. These two photos just do not ‘move’ my grey matter.
But, hey, you never know.
Not exactly our current concept of “dogmen,” based on contemporary descriptions and imagery… but… nevertheless… “dogmen.” High strangeness, me buckos.

Bigfoot encounter at the Oregon Caves, Part 2
May 19, 2014
This is Part 2 of a documentary from thedailycourier.com on psychologist Matthew Johnson’s Bigfoot sighting at the Oregon Caves. Johnson and a film crew went back to the place it happened to tell his story and it includes Johnson’s video footage from Bigfoot research expeditions he took after the sighting. His encounter has been called one of the most credible sightings of the last 20 years.
Oh, this is an excellent piece of testimonial evidence accompanied by real physical evidence and much of that from a true expert in tracking and evidence gathering out in real world wilderness. That vast experience is so unlike armchair analysts and as such is exceptionally valuable and it is a real loss to the world that this fellow passed at such an early age. But he has taught the witness much in their time together and I am confident that much good will come of those teachings.
Enjoy and learn from the message to skeptics at the end which is as true as truth can be.

This guy is 6 ft 9 and was 300 lbs when this happened and experienced hiking in wilderness including AK.
I have walked this loop several times. Anyone who watches this whole video and thinks this guys is lying must be blind! They say the whole of this mountain is like a sieve full of caverns unexplored front to back.
We live near the area and have seen a bed, of small branches and tracks.
Grants Pass, Oregon, psychologist Matthew Johnson is insisting he did hear, smell and see the Pacific Northwest’s mythical Bigfoot while hiking during the July 4th weekend with his family at the Oregon Caves National Monument. “We had just completed the tour of the Oregon Caves and decided to hike up the mountain about a mile or so on the Big Tree Loop Trail,” he told CBS News Early Show co-anchor Jane Clayson Monday.
“That’s when we ran into the smell that was very strong like a skunk but a lot worse.” Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, is the name given to a large, hairy, ape-like creature reportedly living clandestinely in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. Johnson says Bigfoot paralleled his family on an animal trail about 40 feet away and for about 10 minutes walking, making “whoo, whoo” noises.
Scientist Predicts Higher Forms Of Alien Life on Europa

It’s ‘almost a racing certainty’ there’s alien life on Jupiter’s moon Europa—and Mars could be hiding primitive microorganisms, too. That’s the view of leading British space scientist Professor Monica Grady, who says the notion of undiscovered life in our galaxy isn’t nearly as far-fetched as we might expect.
Professor Grady, a Professor of Planetary and Space Science, says the frigid seas beneath Europa’s ice sheets could harbor ‘octopus’ like creatures. Meanwhile the deep caverns and caves found on Mars may also hide subterranean life-forms—as they offer shelter from intense solar radiation while also potentially boasting remnants of ice.
Professor Grady was speaking at Liverpool Hope University, where she’s just been installed as Chancellor, and revealed: “When it comes to the prospects of life beyond Earth, it’s almost a racing certainty that there’s life beneath the ice on Europa.”
“Elsewhere, if there’s going to be life on Mars, it’s going to be under the surface of the planet. “There you’re protected from solar radiation. And that means there’s the possibility of ice remaining in the pores of the rocks, which could act as a source of water.”
“If there is something on Mars, it’s likely to be very small—bacteria.”
“But I think we’ve got a better chance of having slightly higher forms of life on Europa, perhaps similar to the intelligence of an octopus.”
Well, if that’s the case then the universe could be teeming with life and probably advanced civilizations far ahead of us in technology that would perhaps seem like magic to us. One scientist said that there are more advanced civilizations partying around the universe than there are grains of sand on planet earth!!
I wouldn’t go that far but there is probably more life out there than we can ever imagine!
I would go that far. Life teems. It’s the only thing life knows how to do. Just look at our own world, there’s life deep underground…inside the rocks…and they just found life inside the Chernobyl reactor that eats the radiation.
So, yes, absolutely, life is everywhere — and I use the word everywhere quite literally.
I love this stuff. We need to stop killing each other and get out in space! And hey, there is also Enceladus!
Gimbal UFO – What it really looks like
Jul 7, 2019
Dear viewer, Welcome to my detailed video – and image enhancement of the famous Gimbal UFO. Do not expect from me that I am going to describe the original video or the HUD display as has been done already. No I will only focus on showing you what this craft (UFO) really looks like. For the full story, mission details and more background information on the Gimbal UFO: Detailed info: https://coi.tothestarsacademy.com/gim… Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf1uL…
What I find interesting is why they released the video but not telling you what it looks like. I am doing this work for more than 25 years. It really surprises me that they have not released more details. Wouldn’t you say that by now they must know what they are up against?
It is pretty diffult to enhance any details from this video as the craft is located right in the centre of an overbright and high contrast region.
Part of the solution to make the craft visible I found in applying a 4 times iteration of CLAHE.
What is CLAHE? CLAHE stands for Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization.
This sounds complicated but it is in fact rather simple to explain. When you would use a Histogram Equalization (HE) filter on a video or photo, the software improves the background contrast of an entire photo. As long as you use a photo or video with very poor (dim) lighting conditions and one that does not have any (over)bright areas the filter does a perfect job. In the best cases you can see a lot more details in a dark photo.
The HE filter however completely fails when there is one or more areas of high brightness in the photo. When that is the case after applying HE the entire photo has become overbright and lots of details are lost. The reason for this is that HE works global (entire image) and therefore
the filter is not limited to a particular section of the image. Therefore HE does not work on the Gimbal video.
If we do not want the whole image to become overbright, Adaptive Histogram Equalization (AHE) is to be used instead.
In principle AHE works the same way as HE except that there is no global processing. With AHE the image is divided in smaller squares (tiles). In AHE mode each of these squares is histogram equalized separately and as the histogram is limited to a small section there is no overbrightness or trans border effect.
Unfortunately using the AHE filter also can have a negative effect when the image contains (too) much noise as its noise will also be amplified. To get rid of this noise another filter is used: Contrast Limitation (CL). By setting a threshold, the noise (pixels) is equalized and so the image stays (relatively) clean.
By applying CLAHE to an image, we see another side effect: small lines (squares). To fade these lines often a global bilinear interpolation filter is used.
So now you know what CLAHE is and its benefits over Histogram Equalization.
I have told you that PART of the solution was CLAHE. That is true. This video is recorded in the Infrared spectrum so I first had to recover the original colours using an IR to VIS(ual) / Ul(tra)V(iolet) spectrum filter. Having recovered (most of) the natural colours the next steps where basic processing; Stacking frames, curve filter, deblur, refocus, micro contrast enhancement for details and finally a tone mapper.
So what will you see in the final result?
1. The Gimbal UFO is neither saucer shape nor does it resamble a (real) triangle.
2. The UFO appears to have a minimum of three visible and perhaps more indiscernible propulsion systems.
3. Does it stop here? For now YES but I intend to show you every single part of this UFO so I am already working on a combination of new (mostly experimental) enhancement methods.
To be continued …
Enjoy this video that shows the Gimbal UFO as it really is. Did you ever imagine that it looked like ….
Part two will (hopefully) follow soon revealing alot more details.

Dear viewer, WAPTEK2 and other Youtubers question the genuineness of the Gimbal video material. They claim that it is CGI and that this was already proven on Above Top Secret and other forums. Well, anyone knows how I nowadays think about ATS. I was a member once, until I discovered what ATS really stands for. I can neither confirm nor deny that there indeed might be manipulated footage on the internet. Nowadays very clever CGI experts could replicate videos from top to bottom and add, remove or replace parts of a video almost unnoticed. Having said that: please note that in 2004 and even today with current known algorithms used to up- and downscale it is totally impossible to create a craft in CGI in a bigger size, compress it to 815 x 815 pixels (you will lose a lot of valuable data) and when you upscale the video (increase resolution through e.g. interpolation) retrieve not only very detailed (original) information but also the (original) colours.. This is physically not possible: period! For your information: The GIMBAL video was officially released by the Pentagon together with the 2004 FLIR1 video. These two videos are unrelated. The Gimbal UFO was filmed at the East Coast of the United States and at a till this day unknown date and the 2004 FLIR1 video at the West Coast. If there is any mentioning of CGI created videos back in 2004 it has been done for a specific reason. For my research I never use video material from the internet. My only sources are the operator (original film) or an official channel. The Gimbal UFO video used for the analysis comes from an official, therefore reliable und trustworthy source.
I dunno. This is the guy who did the vid on the one down under I posted about. The second vid of which had me leery. This one less so, but… I dunno about this guy.
