NASA just released the first photos New Horizons was able to capture of Pluto’s surface. Pretty cool.

What’s on the other side of the world to you?

In geography, the antipodes of any place on Earth is its antipodal point; that is, the region on the Earth’s surface which is diametrically opposite to it. Two points which are antipodal to one another are connected by a straight line through the center of the Earth.

This site allows you to do just that. Simply click the map and drag it to where you are located. The map on the bottom will show your opposite world location. The antipodes Minneapolis is pretty much in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

Increase in strange sounds in sky being recorded

Investigative reporter Linda Moulton Howe is researching a large number of strange and unexplained horn-like sounds filling the air since March 2011 and the possible causes. The phenomenon surfaced after a number of videos were uploaded on YouTube from such divergent places as Norway, Costa Rica, Tennessee and Kiev, Ukraine. The sounds, like the one recorded below, sound like trains and are described as the sky groaning.

There must be some 50 YouTube videos now circulating from many places in North America and from different countries around the world with strange, often unexplained, sounds recorded over the past year since at least March 2011. Do a search for them yourself and make your own judgment call.

These accounts aren’t always from the wackos and conspiracy theory folks either. Mainstream media is reporting on it more frequently too.

Some think the sounds are from some secret government testing. Others think the sounds are extraterrestrial. Many are also making the connections of these sounds to the Bible and the book of Revelation (Chapters 8 and 9) where it talks about the the opening of the seventh seal and angels blowing trumpets.

Whatever the explanation, the sounds are creepy and must be amazingly frightening to experience first hand. Next time you are outside, take a moment to stop and listen to your surroundings. Is the Earth trying to tell us something? Below is another video that shows many eyewitness accounts from all over. It’s worth watching and listening to.

How to rebuild Earth after 2012

This is cool. The Open Source Ecology (OSE) and the Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) started a project that is building 40 tools and machines that can be used to (re)create new civilizations with modern-day comforts. This technology and these new construction and agriculture designs will be great when we have to rebuild Earth after 2012. 🙂

But seriously, the prototypes here are impressive, and the practical applications are far-reaching. Think what small, remote villages and Third World countries could accomplish with these tools.
