Stephen Hawking dies

Stephen Hawking, the man who made space, time and black holes popular, died March 14 at the age of 76. Hawking was one of the most beloved scientists in this generation -- not only for his intellect, but for his wit and humor.   In June 2014, late-night comic John Oliver sat down with Hawking for an interview. “You’ve stated that there could be an infinite number of parallel universes. Does that mean there’s a universe out there where I am smarter than you?” “Yes,” Hawking replied, his lips bending up into a slight smile. “And also a universe where you’re funny.” He left behind a number of provocative as well as comical quotes. "It would not be much of a universe if it wasn't home to the people you love." "I wouldn't compare scientific discovery to sex, but it lasts longer."


Are We All Neanderthal Descendants?

40,000-year-old Neanderthal bones found in a Croatian cave were so well-preserved that they yielded enough DNA for sequencing. in the past dozen years it has been established that Neanderthals interbred with humans in their time together in Europe. Possibly even more than once. All this has painted a complicated but dynamic picture of human prehistory. Since the very beginning of our species, humans have been on the move - at times they replaced and at other times they mixed with the local population, first hominids like Neanderthals and later other humans. Therefore, almost everyone on the planet can claim to have Neanderthal ancestors.


Birthmark Reveals She is Her Own Twin

This sounds like the stuff of a soap opera plot twist - except it’s real. A California woman decided to have a birthmark on her torso checked out (always a good idea) and the diagnosis was shocking to say the least – her doctor informed her that mark was actually DNA that was different than her own - different because she had absorbed a fraternal twin before birth and parts of that sibling have become part of her. This explains a lot of mysterious other symptoms and ailments she’s experienced. “Everything on the left side of my body is slightly larger than the right side. I have a double tooth in the left side of my mouth.” Taylor Muhl was diagnosed with tetragametic chimerism, an extremely rare (100 known cases, although it’s possibly more common that once thought) condition caused when two separate eggs are fertilized by two different sperms, starting the process that usually results in fraternal twins … except when one of the embryos absorbs the other. The victorious twin often ends up with parts of both, such as two different eye colors or two sets of genitalia. In Taylor’s case, she has two sets of DNA, two bloodstreams and two immune systems.


Stingless bees build odd spiraling hives  The idea of a stingless bee may seem as strange as an octopus that can run, but they exist. Case in point is Australia's amazing sugarbag bees (Tetragonula carbonaria) which not only do not sting, but also construct these amazing spiralling hives. No one is sure why sugarbag bees build their hives in this way. (see more)


Facebook censors 25,000-year-old art

The latest work Facebook deems “pornographic” is the 25,000 year-old nude statue known as the Venus of Willendorf, part of the Natural History Museum collection in Vienna. An image of this, perhaps the world's oldest known piece of art only 4.5 inches tall, posted by Laura Ghiandaand was removed by Facebook as inappropriate content despite four attempts to appeal the decision.


Billy Graham dies

The world's best-known evangelist, Rev. Billy Graham, died February 21. He was 99. From the gangly 16-year-old baseball-loving teen who was “saved” at a tent revival, Rev. Graham went on to become an international recognized preacher, a counselor to a dozen presidents and the voice of solace in times of national heartbreak. He was America's pastor. In 2005 Rev. Graham retired to his mountain home in Montreat, N.C., after nearly six decades on the road preaching Christ at 417 all-out preaching and musical events from Miami to Moscow. His final New York City crusade in 2005 was sponsored by 1400 regional churches from 82 denominations. In recent years, he was plagued by various ailments, including cancer and pneumonia.


First Englishmen were dark-skinned

A cutting-edge scientific analysis shows that British people 10,000 years ago had dark brown skin and blue eyes. Researchers from London's Natural History Museum extracted DNA from Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton, which was discovered in 1903. University College London researchers then used the subsequent genome analysis for a facial reconstruction. It underlines the fact that the lighter skin characteristic of modern Europeans is a relatively recent phenomenon. The analysis provides valuable new insights into the first people to resettle Britain after the last Ice Age.

Latest news: No global warming

A landmark study published in the journal Nature reveals that global ocean temperatures have risen only 0.1 degree Celsius in the last fifty years. According to the mainstream media, the oceans are rapidly heating and are to blame for recent hurricanes. But the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration’s data tells a different story. The new study reveals how much and how fast this “ocean warming” is occurring. Compare this uptake to periods of warming in the past, and the argument that man-made global warming is destroying the world’s oceans begins to fall apart. The truth is far less dramatic than the politicians have told us.




Discovery could change war forever

Scientists have just discovered a way to create a lightweight material that is bulletproof. Scientists combined two graphene layers and created a new material that is both soft and light, and also can instantly become as hard as diamond when a bullet or some other object strikes it. This material, known as diamene, is as thin as aluminum foil. It was developed at City University of New York’s Advanced Science Research Center. The findings were published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.

MIT creates living tattoos

The latest biohybrid strangeness comes out of MIT, where engineers have invented what they're calling "living tattoos" that can respond to their environment just like living cells. Made of living cells that have been 3D printed on the skin as flexible three-dimensional interactive structures or devices that can sense various chemicals and do other things. (read more)



Secret chamber found in Great Pyamid

Scientists, using advanced instruments, have found a hidden chamber in Egypt’s Great Pyramid at Giza. This is the first such discovery in the structure in over 100 years and one likely to spark a new surge of interest.  The mysterious cavity, described Nov. 2 in the journal Nature, is at least 95 feet long.  Though the researchers aren’t sure whether it’s straight or inclined, whether it’s one large space or a series of smaller ones, this discovery has already triggered excitement among archaeologists wanting to know its purpose.  30 years ago, E. Hubbard, a local psychic, channeled a message from a 19th century archaeologist who said the designer of the Great Pyramid was a genius who died before the pyramid was completed and whose mummy was placed in the special chamber along with artifacts and records.

Brian resigns from Pagan Pride

The Phoenix Pagan Community has a bit of a dilemma on its hands regarding Phoenix Pagan Pride Day. Brian Simpson, who has been successfully managing the event for years, has stepped down.  He told the Omega Directory, "I've been doing this for five years and  it's time for someone else to take charge. With new perspective comes new growth."  Maia Dawn Wolf says, "There is now a BIG void to fill. If no one comes forward to run the event, there will be no Phx Pagan Pride Day this year.

Dr. John finally gets transportation

Rev. Dr. John E. Rodgers and his wife Joy now have a car to get around in. They wish to thank everone for their prayers and assisstance. Dr John was on his way to speak at Sun Spiritualist Camp in Tonopah December 9 when his car was struck and totally destroyed. He was amazingly uninjured except for a few aches and bruises. After the medics checked him out and the car was hauled off, the tow-truck driver dropped him off at the church and he was able to deliver his speech only half an hour late. From beginning to end, the day was a miracle.

Az family haunted by Yiddish ghost

A West Phoenix family claims they are being haunted by a Jewish “ghost”.  Home owner Rudy Calderon says the problems began on December 21st. The first incidents seemed like pranks but he got worried a few days later when both of his bathrooms mysteriously flooded and he found some strange letters on the wall written using something like charcoal. Calderon uploaded a video of the writing to social media and someone identified it as the Yiddish word for “danger.” While paranormal activities may not be rare, but Jewish ghost stories are. The popular Hebrew word for ghost is dybbuk, which is a wandering soul that can take over a person and control their actions, and sometimes often offer guidance and direction. The Calderon’s are not Jewish but it sounds like they could use the help of a rabbi experienced in Kabbalah—magical branch of Judaism. The rabbi would most likely blow a shofar (trumpet) to separate the ghost from that which it possesses. He would then comfort the ghost and help determine what unfinished business it had. The exorcist would also say prayers to help protect the house and its inhabitants. So far the Calderon's have not yet found a rabbi to help them.

But he is disturbed because he is getting Facebook contacts from Ghana. "I do not know anyone living in Ghana, working in Ghana, or even remotely associated with Ghana," he says.

Queen Creek lights mystery solved

Mysterious lights appeared in the sky over Queen Creek the night of December 18. They formed a long cluster and changed formation at one point, according to those who spotted them. Many residents snapped photos of the lights as they moved through the sky around 8 p.m. With no official word on what the hundreds of lights were, theories ranged from nighttime skydivers to LED lights tied to drones. Some even think they may have been visitors from outer space.  One observer suggested a large UFO, with city lights reflecting on it and on its gaseous contrail. The true source is almost as strange. click here

Dog goes from Phoenix to Phenix & back

Seven years ago a Shih Tzu puppy named Teddy strayed from the Sisamouth home here in Phoenix. Early in December the family received a call from a shelter in Phenix City, Alabama, 1806 miles away. The shelter read the microchip on the dog and identified him. They called Lay Sisamouth to say they  found the puppy. Unbelievable!! How did this all happen? Lay's wife, Melissa, said the puppy was found by a military family. Not knowing about the microchip, they could not identify the puppy so they kept it. They moved around the country and ended up in Phenix City and gave the puppy away when they could no longer keep it. Teddy ended up in an animal shelter, with the microchip still registered to the Sisamouth family. Lay flew to Phenix City to pick up the dog who still recognized the family

50-year-old store ends its mission

The idea of the Alpha Book Center arose in the mind of Rev. Dr. John E. Rodgers in 1967. Its purpose was to be a place for metaphysics and New Age ideas. The store grew and moved steadily year after year, paving he way for other stores to begin. But, after nearly half a century, Dr. John decided the store had done its job and it was time to put it to rest. August 11 the store's mission ended when the door was closed for the last time..
