  • As expected, numerous people not involved in last Friday's aerial event over the Irish coast have pronounced upon its origin. "Meteorite" seems to be the favorite explanation, though technically the light is a meteor caused by a meteoroid burning up in Earth's atmosphere and "meteorite" applies only to those fragments of the meteoroid that actually get to the ground. David Metcalfe weighs in on the "weighers-in" with Mediating the Mystery--A Few Thoughts on Irish UFOs, Sloppy Journalism and Questionable Experts. This is interesting commentary on how poorly mainstream journalism continues to treat anomalous aerial events, even after a spasm of seriousness in the wake of the AATIP revelations. And Brett Tingley throws his favorite theory in as a possible explanation at Multiple Reports and Air Traffic Recordings of UFOs Over Ireland. (WM)

  • A recent survey aimed at learning who in the American population has experienced psi phenomena has shown that high strangeness (or moderate strangeness for that matter) doesn't discriminate. Interestingly, even those from backgrounds expected to make them highly skeptical reported experiences, although since the survey was voluntary those results may have been somewhat skewed. One profession that deals with the unexplained regularly is law enforcement. Navajo Police Encounters with the Paranormal are a regular occurrence on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, so much so that an entire department is dedicated to investigating these strange reports. Skinwalkers, Bigfoot, UFOs are only the beginning. All reports are treated as valid, all witnesses are treated with respect, meaning many more encounters are reported here than off the reservation.  Strange Accounts of Fishermen and the Paranormal reminds us of when we were kids,  jumping off the dock and refusing to open our eyes under water--maybe there was a good reason for that. There's more to fear at the ol' fishing hole than snapping turtles and leeches... (CM)

  • Italian astrophysicist Massimo Teodorani and Greg Bishop converse over a wide range of topics, from UFOs and Consciousness through music and paragliding. All of the topics are worthwhile, with good questions and the affable Teodorani nonetheless making no bones about New Age charlatans who've hybridized bits and pieces of his published thought to create awful money-making programs on the one hand, and lazy "CSICOPians" who from their armchairs lampoon these fraudsters without distinguishing their blather from his own original thoughts. Though scientifically trained and grounded, Teodorani considers himself open to speculations on what underlies the good data he so rigorously advocates, and has gotten into scrapes with more conservative scientists and SETI proponents. Which bothers him not a whit. He discusses his early fascination with UFOs--and his subsequent extensive "book-burning" of most of a huge library of such materials--and his discoveries and beliefs about the Hessdalen Lights. He also emphasizes studying the UFO witness, and proposes a scientific way of uncovering whether there is a real witness/phenomenon interaction with respect to such phenomena as the Lights. And then there are those other enthusiasms of this remarkable thinker, which he and Greg cover towards the end of the entertaining and mind-opening dialogue. (WM)

  • Occasions where a single artifact--especially a portable one--occurs in a completely out-of-place archaeological level or location should be treated with reserve. This avoids elaborate claims based upon likely "false alarms." On the other hand, "failing to hear the alarm" of such a "one-off" can result in a lost opportunity to illuminate earlier trade/communication routes or technical achievements. So what does one do when the novelty that's found is the size of a house? Martin J. Clemens covers the case of one such Mesoamerican monument. Well, Jason Colavito has been monitoring Clemens, and offers Return of the Colossal Stone Head of Guatemala: Now with 50% More Easter Island. Apparently Jason had debunked this claim--which seems to have centered upon a real colossal head--five years ago. And archaeologist Lee A. Parsons had already done so in 1974, as Jason explains. The whole is an interesting story, based upon a core act of artistic love and remembrance that itself seems somewhat improbable but apparently actually happened. (WM)

  • The sky is falling again, or at least chunks of ice are falling from it, and as usual no one wants to be held accountable. While it seems obvious the ice falls are originating with overhead planes, officials are deep in denial and the folks on the ground are left dealing with the literal fallout in terms of damaged property. But while no one wants to admit chunks of ice are dropping out of the sky, NASA Finds Source of Perfectly Rectangular Iceberg. Using satellite imagery scientists were not only able to confirm that the berg was natural in origin, but they also now know which original ice berg birthed this anomaly. We wonder if they'd be interested in watching for passenger planes dumping potable water before landing? (CM)

  • Nick Redfern begins our look at UFOs past with a short introduction and several interesting accounts of a pre-Kenneth Arnold Scandinavian UFO wave. The book UFOs and Government: A Historical Inquiry (Anomalist Books, 2012) has covered this remarkable period in great and interesting detail. Nick continues with a case that is Not Quite a "U.K. Roswell" But Still Intriguing. And this one is a real eye-opener, whatever its ultimate cause was. Though the 1946 Scandinavian wave had its share of exciting events, including searches of lakes for fallen missilery, that and this 1996 single incident don't seem to have generated a great deal of nonsense around them. Kevin Randle has been looking at some of these older cases in an effort to separate "happening" from "hype" lately, and notably on the April 24, 1964 Socorro, New Mexico, CEIII event. But Kevin has "other irons stoking his fire" in My Latest Outrage--Bielek, Allende and Several Other Things. This piece continues Kevin's crusade to purge research of UFO and Other Stories Proven Wrong That Will Not Die. (WM)

  • A conversation with Wren Collier, an avid scholar of the paranormal, and Cherylee Black, whose after-effects of multiple Near Death Experiences have included precognitive dreams, poltergeist activity, and PK powers. This is a listen-in-one-go kind of experience, so be sure you can keep an ear bud in place for the full 87 minutes. When they're not blowing your mind, they're reviewing the new In Search Of series (and no, they're not impressed). Now for some icing on the psychic cake: Super-Empaths Are Real, Says Science. In fact, many don't realize that the swirl of sensations washing over them day after day aren't their own. And while this news offers hope for the 2% of the population who feel what others feel, it may also mean that empathy can be taught in professions like teaching or medicine, where human interaction is key but often sorely lacking.

  • "Correlation does not prove causation"--that has long been a mantra in the Quality profession and is intended to help practitioners judge when the behavior of two different variables seems related. Application of experience and reason to such cases can help avoid either acting wrongly in a given situation, or failing to act when the situation would actually warrant. That adage and its proper application are most important in the medical field, and Henry Bauer argues it certainly applies to the matter of cervical cancer. Bauer makes additional distinctions in this article, which should cause those in medicine to reexamine their use of statistics, limitations in same ("there exists no systematic, mandatory, global system for reporting adverse events resulting from medical treatment"), and their resultant practice of the healing art.

  • Just before dawn last Friday, pilots from at least three different airlines--British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, and Norwegian Air--flying over or off the coast of southwestern Ireland reported seeing multiple unidentified objects flying nearby at incredible speed. Military exercises? Negative. Meteors or space junk? Not likely, since such objects "do not fly up alongside aircraft, make hard lateral maneuvers, and then accelerate away at high speed," according to Tyler Rogoway of The Drive. This story is breaking all over, from the Associated Press, BBC News, and other sources, but The Drive, notably, has the tape of the two minutes of conversation between the astonished airline pilots (beginning at 17:50 and ending after 20:00 minute mark). Irish authorities are looking into the situation. (PH)

  • Here's a pair of video clips that fall into the category of "I dunno, what do you think?" The first captures what appears to be a mysterious figure rushing through a snow covered yard while the family dog goes bonkers. No footprints were left behind though. Next, an Orb Gives Man a Scare? It's possible cold water droplets gave the man a good startle. Or perhaps an insect that also caused one of his companions to make a run for it. His shiver was palpable though. Brrr. (CM)
