Nouvelles du monde et diverses - partie II
Voici le reste de la compilation d'importantes nouvelles parues en 2007-2008. Il y a plusieurs articles sur l'espace, technologies, l'histoire, découvertes ainsi que sur d'autres événements importants qui ont eu lieu.
Two NASA space probes that visited Mars 30 years ago may have stumbled upon alien microbes on the Red Planet and inadvertently killed them, a scientist theorizes in a paper released Sunday.
I have some personal insight on this one. The Viking life sciences experiments found biochemical reactions in the tests, but they eventually stopped. NASA's official conclusion (not agreed with my many) was that the experiment had detected either a precursor to life or a remnant of life. However, others took the same view expressed in this article; that we had found life, but that the life found could not survive in the particular environment created in the testing setup.
A new cosmological model demonstrates the universe can endlessly expand and contract, providing a rival to Big Bang theories and solving a thorny modern physics problem, according to
If new calculations are correct, the universe just got even stranger. Scientists at
The European Space Agency (ESA), whose operational centre is in Noordwijk, is looking for volunteers to take part in a simulated 500-day journey to Mars. Two of the six volunteers will be Europeans and the experiment will take place in
For two days in May, 1999, the solar wind that blows constantly from the Sun virtually disappeared -- the most drastic and longest-lasting decrease ever observed.
Advertisers have a new way to get into your head.
Marketers around the world are using innovative audio technology that sends sound in a narrow beam, just like light, making it possible to direct messages right into consumers' ears while they shop or sit in waiting rooms.
The audio spotlight device, created by
Court TV recently installed the audio spotlight in ceilings of bookstores to promote the network's new murder-mystery show. A voice, whispering, "Hey, you, can you hear me? Do you ever think about murder?" was beamed toward customers as they browsed the mystery section in several independent bookstores in
It was the most notorious scientific experiment in recent memory - in 1989, the two men who claimed to have discovered the energy of the future were condemned as imposters and exiled by their peers. Can it possibly make sense to reopen the cold fusion investigation? A surprising number of researchers already have.
Pour l’ancien secrétaire général adjoint de l’ONU, Hans Christof von Sponeck, les Nations unies, loin de veiller au respect du droit international et à la consolidation de la paix, sont devenues un facteur d’injustice. Ainsi, les sanctions mises en place contre l’Irak de Saddam Hussein ont provoqué un désastre humanitaire. Tandis que des Traités comme celui de non-prolifération nucléaire sont utilisés pour assurer la domination des uns et menacer les autres. Il est temps de changer complètement de système.
I wonder if it can spot the Apollo landing sites?
In a new documentary, Producer Cameron and his director, Simcha Jacobovici, make the starting claim that Jesus wasn't resurrected --the cornerstone of Christian faith-- and that his burial cave was discovered near Jerusalem. And, get this, Jesus sired a son with Mary Magdelene.
The religiously deranged are going to have the vapors over this one, but I wish to point out that it was not too long ago that a priest and some nuns crucified another nun in an effort to cure her schizophrenia, and inadvertently validated that it takes several days for a healthy human to die on a cross. Hence, the story of Jesus expiring on the cross in just a few hours is suspect, and in the Bible, even Pontius Pilate (who we presume was an expert on the subject of crucifixion) was suspicious about that!
I greatly enjoyed Cameron's "Ghosts of the Abyss". I look forward to seeing what Cameron has done here.
One of the very first scientist to describe dinosaurs, Sir Richard Owen, noted the similarity of the pelvis in his fossils to that of birds, and the dissimilarity of the dinosaurs vertical legs to the sprawled legs of other reptiles, yet erroneously insisted they had to be a form of reptile. That early reptilian association persisted for many years until the 1990s when paleontologists built a strong case showing that the nearest living relative to the dinosaurs are the birds. This latest analysis confirms this view of the dino family tree.
ALL Religion is mind control.
Another holiday is quickly hopping down the bunny trail. Do you have your eggs ready for a dye job? Jelly beans come in all flavors including the gourmet variety for those whose connection to status fills their Easter baskets. Little sugar chicken peeps beg for teeth to rot. Yes, friends, Easter is coming, the holiday that talks about Jesus' death and resurrection, Easter bunnies and Easter eggs.
Every year during the first two weeks of August the mass news media and many politicians at the national level trot out the "patriotic" political myth that the dropping of the two atomic bombs on Japan in August of 1945 caused them to surrender, and thereby saved the lives of anywhere from five hundred thousand to one million American soldiers.
For all the propaganda about

Tony Blair, the British prime minister, could end up swapping Downing Street for a job as the first full-time European Union president, under a plan being actively touted by Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president.
This tells us all a very great deal about Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president.
In an interview Nicolas Sarkozy gave in 2004, he expressed an extraordinary understanding of the plight of the Jewish people for a home: “Should I remind you the visceral attachment of every Jew to

Vulture funds - as defined by the International Monetary Fund and UK Chancellor Gordon Brown among others - are companies which buy up the debt of poor nations cheaply when it is about to be written off, then sue for the full value of the debt plus interest.
There are concerns that such funds are wiping out the benefits which international debt relief was supposed to bring to poor countries.

It is everywhere in the air, the smell of revolution—a world revolution. It has been brewing for a few hundred years, but is now beginning to stink, rank and rotten as those who are at the core of the decay of this nation and many nations around the world.
The cycle of our existence dictates that a new era unfold, ushering us into a new world, not of the order we so often despise and hear about only in the dark corners, in whispers. This order stands watching and waiting at the brink of our earth, her natural selection of our destiny standing close behind her. There is a natural cycle that cannot be avoided. There is this inevitable, long awaited revolution that will usher in the rebirth of our world, a dawning of a new age.
Washington, D.C., September 29th 2006: “Some very unhappy people here but not about the mid term elections. It seems that after the Second World War, the Soviets captures all of the records of the Nazi concentration camps…from 1935 to 1945….and put them in their archives in Moscow. Because they pretty much knock a hole in the legend of six millions gassed, Jewish groups pressured Russia not to ever allow any researcher to see or copy any of these and for certain, never to release the contents of these files to anyone, ever. Russians are easy to bribe and apparently someone in the States got the whole file (on microfilm) and there is fury and panic over this. Jewish groups have asked the DoJ to declare these “improperly released” classified documents and grab them. Unfortunately, there is no legal basis for doing this. The original documents were German and the microfilms are Russian, not American. Some of these groups have built up a thriving business on the subject and anything concrete that could sink their boat is something not to put up with. This is a subject that most people don’t care about but to those who do, it is a real bell-ringer. All of this hinges on whether or not the present owner got these legally. If our people can’t prove he didn’t, it looks like fun and games in the History department!”
Then there are the records of the Red Cross which (unlike the US prison camps) were given full access to the German camps, even to the point of having observers permanently stationed at some of the camps, and while their records showed large numbers of deaths from typhoid towards the end of the war, plus executions for criminal actions, the records fail to show any indications of a large-scale organized genocide in the camps.
