JOINING OUR DINOSAUR HUNT FOR NOVEMBER 2018!

Crypto Hunt
Published on Mar 10, 2018

AS PROMISED, HERE IS A VIDEO FULLY EXPLAINING STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO JOIN OUR NEXT DINOSAUR HUNT ON CONGO-CAMEROON BORDER, WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, WHERE WE ARE GOING, AND THE REMOTE AND TRANQUIL LOCATION THAT IS A CURRENT HOT-SPOT FOR STRANGE ANIMALS!

This would be so grand and life changing for me. I see its a year old so I must’ve missed it anyway. But I’m sure there’ll be more. It would result in my blindness, though, as Id be out of luck for my eye drops, a third of which need refrigeration. Seeing any of these creatures might well be worth it though. Hey, a boy can dream.

RECENT & BIZARRE Disappearances In The UK & My Area

Top Mysteries
Published on Feb 18, 2019

► For many years now, ex detective and author of the Missing 411 series, David Paulides alongside his CanAm Missing team have investigated thousands of unsolved disappearances throughout the National Parks and Forests; all of which hold some eerily similar coincidences. Well, these disappearances are not specific to the United States of America. Most of the disappearances you will learn about throughout this video took place around my local area, while some took place a couple of hours away. I’m not sure if Paulides has mentioned any of the disappearances researched throughout this video, but I was shocked to find so many strange disappearances around the Yorkshire area.

This first case concerns me deeply as it is no more than 10 minutes away from where I live. The circumstances are very strange and as you’ll come to see, may fit a couple of the Missing 411 profile points. You tell me.

Black Hole Image Makes History

Scientists have obtained the first image of a black hole, using Event Horizon Telescope observations of the center of the galaxy M87. The image shows a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun. Credit: Event Horizon Telescope Collaboration

A black hole and its shadow have been captured in an image for the first time, a historic feat by an international network of radio telescopes called the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). EHT is an international collaboration whose support in the U.S. includes the National Science Foundation.

A black hole is an extremely dense object from which no light can escape. Anything that comes within a black hole’s “event horizon,” its point of no return, will be consumed, never to re-emerge, because of the black hole’s unimaginably strong gravity. By its very nature, a black hole cannot be seen, but the hot disk of material that encircles it shines bright. Against a bright backdrop, such as this disk, a black hole appears to cast a shadow.

The stunning new image shows the shadow of the supermassive black hole in the center of Messier 87 (M87), an elliptical galaxy some 55 million light-years from Earth. This black hole is 6.5 billion times the mass of the Sun. Catching its shadow involved eight ground-based radio telescopes around the globe, operating together as if they were one telescope the size of our entire planet.

“This is an amazing accomplishment by the EHT team,” said Paul Hertz, director of the astrophysics division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “Years ago, we thought we would have to build a very large space telescope to image a black hole. By getting radio telescopes around the world to work in concert like one instrument, the EHT team achieved this, decades ahead of time.”

To complement the EHT findings, several NASA spacecraft were part of a large effort, coordinated by the EHT’s Multiwavelength Working Group, to observe the black hole using different wavelengths of light. As part of this effort, NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) and Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory space telescope missions, all attuned to different varieties of X-ray light, turned their gaze to the M87 black hole around the same time as the Event Horizon Telescope in April 2017. If EHT observed changes in the structure of the black hole’s environment, data from these missions and other telescopes could be used to help figure out what was going on.

While NASA observations did not directly trace out the historic image, astronomers used data from NASA’s Chandra and NuSTAR satellites to measure the X-ray brightness of M87’s jet. Scientists used this information to compare their models of the jet and disk around the black hole with the EHT observations. Other insights may come as researchers continue to pore over these data.

There are many remaining questions about black holes that the coordinated NASA observations may help answer. Mysteries linger about why particles get such a huge energy boost around black holes, forming dramatic jets that surge away from the poles of black holes at nearly the speed of light. When material falls into the black hole, where does the energy go?

“X-rays help us connect what’s happening to the particles near the event horizon with what we can measure with our telescopes,” said Joey Neilsen, an astronomer at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, who led the Chandra and NuSTAR analysis on behalf of the EHT’s Multiwavelength Working Group.

NASA space telescopes have previously studied a jet extending more than 1,000 light-years away from the center of M87. The jet is made of particles traveling near the speed of light, shooting out at high energies from close to the event horizon. The EHT was designed in part to study the origin of this jet and others like it. A blob of matter in the jet called HST-1, discovered by Hubble astronomers in 1999, has undergone a mysterious cycle of brightening and dimming.

Chandra, NuSTAR and Swift, as well as NASA’s Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) experiment on the International Space Station, also looked at the black hole at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy, called Sagittarius A*, in coordination with EHT.

Getting so many different telescopes on the ground and in space to all look toward the same celestial object is a huge undertaking in and of itself, scientists emphasize.

“Scheduling all of these coordinated observations was a really hard problem for both the EHT and the Chandra and NuSTAR mission planners,” Neilsen said. “They did really incredible work to get us the data that we have, and we’re exceedingly grateful.”

Neilsen and colleagues who were part of the coordinated observations will be working on dissecting the entire spectrum of light coming from the M87 black hole, all the way from low-energy radio waves to high-energy gamma rays. With so much data from EHT and other telescopes, scientists may have years of discoveries ahead.

Robert Schoch

With Dr. Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D., ORACUL is creating the definitive documentary film about civilization’s remote and forgotten origins.

Go to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oracul/how-old-is-human-civilization!

Dear Friends, Fans of John Anthony West and fellow Grockles,

This is Iggy Makarevich, your host and admin for JAWlist and the webmaster for his site.

Robert M. Schoch in Turkey Photo by Catherine UlisseyI’ve just received some news from John’s good friend and colleague, Dr. Robert Schoch – news that I’m sure John would have wanted all of you to know about.

Dr. Schoch has a 501(c)(3) nonprofit called Organization for the Research of Ancient Cultures, or ORACUL. They have just launched a crowdfunding campaign on the website Kickstarter, in which they are endeavoring to raise funds for a serious documentary film about the research that JAW was so passionate about:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oracul/how-old-is-human-civilization

John would have wanted this film to get made – of that I am sure. He and his work will undoubtedly be featured in it. This is “all or nothing” though – either the fundraising goal is met over the next 30 days or so, or ORACUL gets nothing. This is apparently how the Kickstarter platform works.

There was a good spike of interest and donations over the first few days, but now they NEED your help – either through becoming a Backer if you can, or by sharing the campaign link with as many others as you can.

Thanks everyone! John would have really liked the “crowdfunding” thing – giving everyday folks the ability to “stick it” to the establishment!

be well,
Iggy

PERU EXPEDITION REPORT SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2017

Crypto Hunt
Published on Dec 27, 2017

September-October 2017 trip to Peru, including our information gathering efforts in the Amazon. New info on the cryptids there have convinced us to return in 2018!

The great Bill Gibbons takes on the jungles of Peru in addition to the ones in Cameroon. Really nice film chock full of great info which I am sure you will love.

Terribly pleased to hear that next time he and his team will hit the storied swamps of the Madre de Dios, which some of you may recall is where my hero, Lt. Colonel Percival Harrison Fawcett reported briefly seeing an animal closely resembling a Diplodocus in 1907. His native help immediately abandoned their posts in fright and of course major setbacks ensued.

Will Bill be so lucky to see one?

Great fIlm footage of three Congo/Cameroon expeditions

Crypto Hunt
Published on Dec 9, 2016

Enjoy this great documentary produced by my good friend, Wayne Hall. Lots of footage from 1992/2001/2002/2003/2012! We are planning to return in late 2017, so enjoy, comment, and please – subscribe.

It is so unfortunate that the creationist young earth hype is brought up at the start and finish. It bothers me. Quite a bit. Then again, they’re the only ones who support the expeditions, or so it would seem, anyway. At any rate, these bleatings are blessedly brief.

Okay, having gotten that out I will say that this film is very well made with a lot of ground covered and it certainly does feature some great footage and a whole mess of great people who actually go out there and look. Towards the end, a mokele mbembe can be heard bellowing. What else could it be. Can’t beat that. Well, you could beat it with some footage, eh.

Many of the commenters wondered why the later expeditions had no drones. I wonder, too, Especially as they fly so well these days and have such nice cameras.

I am wondering whether they went back in 2017 as they mentioned. Will see what I can find.

Anyway, enjoy it, some excellent content.

Police Find a Human Leg in The River Irwell, UK 411 Cases or the Manchester Pusher?

D. Hatswell Creature Reports
Published on Apr 4, 2019

The UK ‘NSC’ Cases

Police check missing persons list after ‘human leg’ found in River Irwell.  Police are checking a list of missing people after human remains – believed to be a leg – were recovered from the River Irwell in Salford. The force says ‘enquiries into the circumstances are ongoing’

I have something very different for you today, over the years I have been repeatedly asked if ‘there was any missing 411 cases here in the UK.’  Now for people not familiar with that term, 411 was a book of reports made by an American Gentleman named David Paulides who wrote a book about missing people in the national parks in the US and he wondered if any of the cases are related to the Bigfoot sightings in the parks themselves or purely a matter of bad luck or mechanical injury or even on occasion a human predator of some kind, along with wild Cats, Wolves and Bears there is a very large percentage of missing people as you can imagine. I have always just pooh pooh’d the question to be fair, until like all things serendipity was at play and I was contacted by a number of researchers and interested parties who had missing people cases to share with me.  So I thought I would start where all this started for me and look at my local town quite close to Manchester and I was shocked at the things I found.  Now this is only the first of many articles to come on this subject as I have been inundated with reports from all across the UK.

The Mysterious Flying Ropen Of New Guinea

Unexplained Mysteries
Published on Feb 27, 2018

The mysterious flying Ropen of New Guinea. In this video we take a look at the mysterious flying Ropen of New Guinea. The Ropen, meaning “demon flyer,” is a cryptid thought to be either a big bat, or more commonly, a pterosaur on New Guinea Island. It’s said to produce a light, possibly to attract fish. According to the book Searching for Ropens, it’s “any featherless creature that flies in the Southwest Pacific, and has a tail-length more than 25% of its wingspan.”

Thank you for watching!

Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

Wow, this video includes historical information that is new to me that has definitely locked in Ropen existence in my mind.

Pterodactyl Sighting in Illinois

National Cryptid Society
Published on Oct 28, 2017

If you have had encountered a cryptid animal, strange creature, or what you can only describe as a “monster,” make a report with the National Cryptid Society at www.nationalcryptidsociety.org.

National Cryptid Society Case File #57;

Pterodactyl Sighting in Delavan, Illinois
This sighting occurred in the late 70’s.
The witness statement is as follows:

“Something just told me today to check the internet to see if other people have had sightings of this, so I’m telling mine. I don’t remember the exact year because I was young I think I was in first grade or second but we were living on a farmhouse in the country surrounding Delavan Illinois.

It was between 8 am and 10 am I think.

All I know it was a warm sunny summer morning and I decided to go outside and take our blue heeler for a walk.

On our property at that time we had a mowed pasture that had 4 or 5 apple trees, an apricot tree and a long grape vine bush and there was a 14 foot wide path that attached our front yard to that pasture.

While I was dead smack in the middle of it with the dog I heard this loud rustle on the other side of the trees.

When I looked to the south I saw this outrageously large bird just fly straight up and start flying east.

It scared the living daylights out of me because it was the size of our house and bigger than the apple trees and as soon as I saw it I knew what it was.

It was a friggin Pterodactyl!

The color of it was exactly the color of sand or tan over its whole body and it had no feathers. It had a long narrow mouth a long slightly curved horn out of the back of its head and no tail that I saw.

It looked like everything was attached by its tan skin.

When I saw this I came back to the front door screaming.

My older brother thought it would be funny to lock me out of the house because I came back to the front door screaming and beating on the door then he unlocked it because he saw how frantic I was and that’s when I told him what I saw.

I told dad that day to when he got home from work and he just said that I probably just saw an eagle or a hawk or maybe even a crane.

Nothing ever came of it and I just kept my mouth shut since then.

Til this day I know what I saw because of how old I was.

I was old enough to know what an eagle, hawk and crane looked like.

And now checking the web I see that other people have pictures and even videos of something extremely similar except for the color.

Well that’s my story do what you want with it but I know 100% that is what I saw that day.”

Note that you can also send your sightings of any cryptozooogical encounters you may have or had in the past to me at [email protected] as I would really love to finally start making videos such as this one for myself which I would post to my YouTube channel and also directly on this site.

I am looking forward to it, but in all my years only two people have reported anything to me… the last was years ago.

Fix that for me, eh?!

yeren

The Yeren, also known as the Chinese Wildman, is a cryptid frequently sighted in the forests and mountains of the Chinese province of Hubei. It is said to stand between six and eight feet tall, and is covered in reddish-brown hair.

The Xinhua News Agency, China’s official state-run press agency, claims that over four hundred people have encountered the Yeren. They are generally thought to be non-violent, though in 1980 a woman claimed to have been kidnapped by a Yeren. Occasionally, reports surface of white-haired Yeren. These are believed to be older examples of the species.

High resolution: Purchase print

2-day gouache painting of Yi qi, the bizarre new membrane-winged scansoriopterygid. I wanted to see what the membrane would look like attaching further down on the body than in nearly every depiction I’ve seen so far, which show it attaching on the flank or at the armpit. I can’t get behind a leg-attachment point for this critter; it makes more sense to me that a long-legged animal would want its legs free and flexible. If a sprawling mobile hip-joint can be established for scansors, I’d potentially change my stance on that. Anyway, here’s a semi-new interpretation amidst a flood of recent restorations.

I’m definitely not convinced of powered flight for this critter, so here it is in an extended leap onto a log in pursuit of a Tiaojishan archisargid fly, Calosarugus.

Ooh arr, mateys, I love this!

Driving north on the Pacific Highway along the Newry Forest, a couple pass what they believe to be a Yowie that had been clipped by a truck and lying on the road in March 2019.

The body appeared to be fresh and without trauma in terms of blood etc.

Was it simply temporarily knocked out or stunned, or was it picked up and taken away by one of it’s own kind?

fake dodo

Is this an actual, living dodo?

Could it be?

Nope. Of course not.

Here’s the scoop:

Living Dodo Bird Caught on Video in Costa Rica?

In early March 2015, this video (no longer available) was posted online and claims to show a living Dodo Bird in the jungles of Costa Rica. The footage was captured by a trail camera.

Professor Paul Jubilut, a biologist from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, posted the video to his Facebook page, claiming he received it from a follower. The video shows the supposed Dodo walking around near the trail camera.

Though the video’s authenticity has been heavily debated since it hit the web, Professor Paul Jubilut posted this video, (no longer available) revealing that the footage was part of an ad campaign for a website about wildlife conservation. So while the footage may be fake, it was at least created for a good cause.

This one seems more than a tad far-fetched. Err, make that way more, eh? But I dig it, you know, because I love froggies.

Evidence of any sort would certainly be appreciated.

wendigo

The Wendigo

Once a lost hunter, this being grew so hungry in the freezing cold that it fed on the flesh of fellow humans. This taboo deed lead to the being to have an eternal hunger for human flesh. The legend of the Wendigo came from Algonquian Native American folklore and shows a rather gruesome side to nature and supernatural at the same time.

The Wendigo is said to only be found in cold places, including Canada. Thanks to the immunity to cold, harsh conditions, it can survive even the worst of snow storms. Some describe the Wendigo to be a cousin of Bigfoot, some describe it as a cousin of the Werewolf. No matter what it is relative to, it indeed isn’t something to be sought after.

There are several additions to the Wendigo legend. It has been fabled that the Wendigo can infiltrate the minds of others to turn them into fellow Wendigo. It has been fabled that the Wendigo is fast, or it is extremely slow. Nonetheless, one attribute that remains the same throughout stories is that the Wendigo can mimic human voices to lure its prey.

They always look so much like a rake…

 

 

White River Monster

Appearance

  • Grey skin
  • Four and a half feet wide (one and a third meters)
  • Twelve feet long (three and two thirds meters)
  • Huge mouth
  • Sharp pointy teeth

Fun facts

  • Seen only in White River in Newport, Arkansas
  • Featured in season two of Lost Tapes were they talked of it’s killing of three catfish noodlers
  • In 1973 a law was based to create a refuge for the white river monster, making it illegal to harm the animal in anyway.

Beliefs

  • It’s an elephant seal that entered the river~ this makes sense for seeing the grey giant body that could have been exaggerated, but it’s lifespan wouldn’t correlate with sightings, and likely wouldn’t be able to survive on food in the river
  • Could be a large unidentified fish~ I mean we are constantly finding new species so this might be just an unknown species
  • An ancestor of the Xiphactinus~ The description of the river monster is very very similar to the xiphactinus.

Sightings

  • Said to have tales told of it since the American Civil war
  • First official sighting was on July 1st, 1915. A farmer saw a creature that had grey skin and was “three cars long, one car wide”
  • In 1937 fishermen were having a hard time catching fish when they saw the creature
  • Bramlett bateman saw the creature in 1937 and felt it was a threat to his crops, so he tried to get permission to blow up the creature with Tnt. Officials said no but reports of it brought a bunch of people. They planned to catch it with a giant net but that failed. A deep diver went into to try and find it, but didn’t. When groups were there, over a hundred people reported seeing it.
  • It was seen again in 1971.
