MonsterQuest: MONSTER SPIDERS (S2, E17) | Full Episode | History

HISTORY
Jun 24, 2020

Join an expedition into the wilderness of South America on the hunt for a monster-sized predatory spider. In the forests of Venezuela there are reports of spiders big enough to hunt and eat a small dog, in Season 2, Episode 17, “Monster Spiders.”

“MonsterQuest” takes a scientific look at reported sightings of cryptozoological creatures (cryptids) and paranormal entities around the world, including the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, and werewolves.

The deep fear within the hearts of the locals is evident and a very supportive production is a rather refreshing occurrence.

mars mic launch

Tomorrow, July 30 at approximately 7:50 a.m. EDT, NASA is planning to launch a mission to take the Perseverance rover to Mars. Settled among the millions of dollars of high-tech space equipment is a DPA 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone, an MMA-A Digital Audio Interface and an MMP-G Modular Active Cable, which will act as an ultra-transparent preamplifier.

dpaThe off-the-shelf microphone and audio interface will be the rover’s “ears” and the auditory part of the “brain” during the demanding and dangerous entry, descent and landing (EDL) part of the trip. The microphone’s mission is to capture sounds as the rover enters the Martian atmosphere and makes its way down to the planet surface.

Watch history in the making, live!

Follow the countdown and make sure to check out the other fun and educational information on NASA’s Mars 2020 mission page. You can even watch NASA’s Perseverance rover Launch to Mars on the NASA YouTube channel.

Let’s help give the 4006 (and the entire Perseverance rover) a proper send off and wish it well on its long and lonely 7-month journey!

“Nightswimming deserves a quiet night

I’m not sure all these people understand

It’s not like years ago

The fear of getting caught

Of recklessness and water

They cannot see me naked

These things, they go away

Replaced by everyday”

I was noticing a bit ago, when the sun started going down over my family’s home that it looked an awful lot like the sky Nessie is under in this beautiful piece by Andy Pitts. No, the colors aren’t the same but the feeling is. Hot summer days sure make for the most beautiful evenings. Beautiful colors, night swimming with your favorite partner and just being…

Fleetwood Mac co-founder Peter Green, blues guitarist and singer-songwriter, dies at 73

July 25, 2020, 2:15 PM EDT / Updated July 25, 2020, 5:08 PM EDT
By Nicole Acevedo

Peter Green, co-founder of rock band Fleetwood Mac, has died at age of 73, according to a law firm acting on behalf of his family.

“It is with great sadness that the family of Peter Green announce his death this weekend, peacefully in his sleep,” Swan Turton LLP, solicitors acting on behalf of his family, said in a statement.

The blues guitarist and singer-songwriter started the band alongside drummer Mick Fleetwood and bass guitarist John McVie in London in 1967. He left the group a few years later in 1969 after struggling with mental illness.

“For me, and every past and present member of Fleetwood Mac, losing Peter Green is monumental!” Mick Fleetwood said in a statement. “I will miss you, but rest easy your music lives on. I thank you for asking me to be your drummer all those years ago. We did good, and trail blazed one hell of a musical road for so many to enjoy.”

Green, considered by some as one of the best British blues guitarists of the 1960s, also composed hit songs like “Albatross” and “Black Magic Woman.”

Fleetwood told The Associated Press in 2017 that Green deserves most of the credit for the band’s success.

“Peter was asked why did he call the band Fleetwood Mac. He said, ‘Well, you know I thought maybe I’d move on at some point and I wanted Mick and John (McVie) to have a band.’ End of story, explaining how generous he was,” said Fleetwood, who described Green as a standout musician even in an era of great guitarists.

He was so fundamental to the band that in its early days it was called Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac, his band co-founder added.

Green became an influential blues rock guitarist, with Rolling Stone reporting that he’s considered one of the best 100 greatest guitarists ever.

Green also made his mark as a composer, with “Albatross,” “Oh Well” and “Black Magic Woman.”

“Oh Well”

The dreamy instrumental “Albatross” — which John Lennon said influenced his song “Sun King” on the Beatles album “Abbey Road” — reached the top of the U.K. singles chart in 1968.

Following his departure from Fleetwood Mac, Green returned for sporadic guest appearances.

He ultimately reclaimed his musical career when in 1998 he appeared in New York for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with his bandmates. He then continued to perform and tour over the years.

Divorced from Jane Samuels Green, Green is survived by their daughter, Rose Samuels-Greenbaum.

Tributes from other musicians poured forth Saturday.

“Sad to hear of Peter Green passing- one of the greats. RIP,” tweeted Geezer Butler, founding member of Black Sabbath.

…More

Oh no, my hero, my god, has left this dimension to play in God’s own Blues band.

I am in mourning. I am so sad.

Head of the Snake – Wexner, Maxwell’s, Mossad & Mega Group Exposed

PVPGURL
Jun 6, 2020

Download the video here: www.dropbox.com/s/p26659s90jx…

This is a condensed version of the three hour phone call between survivor Maria Farmer & investigative journalist Whitney Webb. I’ve included all of their discussion relating to Mossad, Mega Group, Les Wexner, and Israel. These are the key pieces of information that the mainstream media won’t touch and is in fact complicit in keeping this decades long blackmail operation continuing. Jeffery Epstein was not the head of the snake, he was only mid management and was assigned by Israeli Intelligence to work for Ghislaine Maxwell in the 80’s, who reported to billionaire Zionist Les Wexner.

*Alan Dershowitz decided to yet again attack another victim of this operation, smearing Virginia wasn’t enough, so he wrote a blast piece accusing Maria Farmer of being a bigoted anti-semite because of this phone call. This is inexcusable- Maria Farmer is a victim of racism by these fake Jewish supremacists INCLUDING Alan “I kept my underwear on” Dershowitz. She is not the racist, she is a victim of racism. She clearly says she knows its not all Jews in this call, she accuses the elite Zionists & mafia for this operation.

This particular EDITED video is only focusing on the Zionist connections in the phone call, but please take the time to hear out the full 3 hour unedited call with Whitney Webb. Maria Farmer isn’t the anti-Semite, nor is Whitney Webb. Alan Dershowitz and this band of criminals hiding behind a Jewish identity to get away with their wicked crimes are the anti-semites. www.blacklistednews.com/artic…

I hope you guys listen to the full unedited phone call between Farmer & Webb, because there’s a lot I didn’t include in this video. You can listen to it here: Part 1: youtu.be/MGtDj8drWvE Part 2: youtu.be/kItJSpQeyCg

Whitney Webb is working on writing a book that covers the intelligence aspects of the story. Keep an eye out for her book in late summer! She’s amazing!

Please feel totally free to re-upload or share this video. I provided a download link because I want to encourage people to expose the criminal Zionist network. The more the REAL story gets out there, the more likely we can bring justice to the victims and put these gangsters away!

Wexner, Maxwell, Barak, Netanyahu, Rothschild, Lauder, Bronfman, and Dershowitz are all villains who have been complicit in trafficking children around the world in order to blackmail the political elite to control them for Israel’s agenda. They must be exposed!

I pray these heroes, heroines, stay alive and well.

It is beyond noble, what they do – in revealing the reality of what sort of filth the world is infested with.

 

 
I love that we have the tech to do this, to gaze upon planets far, far from home. Yes, this is fantastic.

This just in [from]:

It’s the first ever direct image of two large exo planets around a star similar to our own. It’s pretty awesome to get to see a real image of planets outside our solar system.

www.eso.org…

The European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope (ESO’s VLT) has taken the first ever image of a young, Sun-like star accompanied by two giant exoplanets. Images of systems with multiple exoplanets are extremely rare, and — until now — astronomers had never directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun. The observations can help astronomers understand how planets formed and evolved around our own Sun.

Even though astronomers have indirectly detected thousands of planets in our galaxy, only a tiny fraction of these exoplanets have been directly imaged,” says co-author Matthew Kenworthy, Associate Professor at Leiden University, adding that “direct observations are important in the search for environments that can support life.” The direct imaging of two or more exoplanets around the same star is even more rare; only two such systems have been directly observed so far, both around stars markedly different from our Sun. The new ESO’s VLT image is the first direct image of more than one exoplanet around a Sun-like star. ESO’s VLT was also the first telescope to directly image an exoplanet, back in 2004, when it captured a speck of light around a brown dwarf, a type of ‘failed’ star.

This image, captured by the SPHERE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, shows the star TYC 8998-760-1 accompanied by two giant exoplanets. This is the first time astronomers have directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun.
The image was captured by blocking the light from the young, Sun-like star (on the top left corner) using a coronagraph, which allows for the fainter planets to be detected. The bright and dark rings we see on the star’s image are optical artefacts. The two planets are visible as two bright dots in the centre and bottom right of the frame.

This image, captured by the SPHERE instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope, shows the star TYC 8998-760-1 accompanied by two giant exoplanets, TYC 8998-760-1b and TYC 8998-760-1c. This is the first time astronomers have directly observed more than one planet orbiting a star similar to the Sun. The two planets are visible as two bright dots in the centre (TYC 8998-760-1b) and bottom right (TYC 8998-760-1c) of the frame, noted by arrows. Other bright dots, which are background stars, are visible in the image as well. By taking different images at different times, the team were able to distinguish the planets from the background stars.    The image was captured by blocking the light from the young, Sun-like star (top-left of centre) using a coronagraph, which allows for the fainter planets to be detected. The bright and dark rings we see on the star’s image are optical artefacts.

This chart shows the location of the TYC 8998-760-1 system. This map shows most of the stars visible to the unaided eye under good conditions and the system itself is marked with a red circle.

Bravo, boffins, jolly good show, what?!

It won’t be long now till we’re out there. I am sure of it. Toddlers today will live it.

Should we survive, of course.

Take a ride on the Lunar Rover as it traverses the Moon in 60fps restored footage.
The clarity of the restored images and frame rate make it look like it was filmed yesterday.

A photo and film restoration specialist, who goes by the name of DutchSteamMachine, has worked some AI magic to enhance original Apollo film, creating strikingly clear and vivid video clips and images.

“I really wanted to provide an experience on this old footage that has not been seen before,” he told Universe Today.

Take a look at this enhanced footage from an Apollo 16 lunar rover traverse with Charlie Duke and John Young, where the footage that was originally shot with 12 frames per second (FPS) has been increased to 60 FPS:
