Black Hole Mystery at the Center of the Andromeda Galaxy

"Chandra's x-ray image of the cool temperatures in the black hole at the center of the Andromeda galaxy kind of flies in the face of what we think happens when matter falls into a black hole. It usually gets very hot.So, this is sort of a unique observation. I'm not aware of any other black hole systems where you see such cool x-ray radiation."

- Eliot Quataert, Ph.D., Astrophysicist -

January 28, 2000  Princeton, New Jersey - Observing x-ray and gamma ray emissions suggestive of a black hole at the center of many galaxies is old hat these days for astrophysicists. Our own Milky Way galaxy seems to have one and so does its nearby twin, the Andromeda galaxy. The suspected black hole at the center of the Milky Way is two and a half times more massive than our sun. But a black hole candidate at the center of Andromeda is 30 million times more massive than our sun.

Possible Link Between 100,000 Lobster Deaths and Pesticide Spraying




January 23, 2000  Guilford, Connecticut - This week fishermen from the Connecticut Commercial Lobstermen's Association met with state and federal officials to discuss why 100,000 lobsters died this past fall in Long Island Sound. Pathologists confirmed an amoeba which invades marine animals when their immune systems are weakened was pervasive throughout the dead lobsters. But what weakened the creatures' immune systems?

Chandra Telescope Helps Solve X-Ray Mystery

"Since it was first observed thirty-seven years ago, understanding the source of the X-ray background has been the Holy Grail of X-ray astronomy. Now, it is within reach."

- Dr. Alan Bunner, Director
NASA's Structure and Evolution of the Universe

X-Ray Image: A view of our galaxy from the all-sky image by the German-led ROSAT x-ray observatory research "oriented so that the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy runs horizontally through the center. Both x-ray brightness and relative energy are represented with red, green and blue colors from lowest energy to highest. Over large areas of the sky a general diffuse background of x-rays dominates." Provided by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, Alabama.

January 17, 2000  Huntsville, Alabama - NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory was launched only five months ago, but it continues to astonish astronomers with its discoveries. One of the most perplexing cosmic mysteries has been the source of x-ray radiation that seems to pervade the universe.

Crop Circle Mysteries – A New Book


January 16, 2000  Petersfield, Hampshire, England - Five hundred years before Christ, a Greek named Empedocles wrote, "The Nature of God is a circle of which the center is everywhere and the circumference is nowhere."

Those words begin a new and beautiful book called Crop Circles, The Greatest Mystery of Modern Times by British author and researcher, Lucy Pringle. She is a founding member of the Center for Crop Circle Studies and Chairman of the Unexplained Phenomena Research Society in the U. K. She is currently coordinating research into the effects of electromagnetic fields on living matter and has over six hundred reports in her data base.

Computer Projections About Earth Weather 2000-2100


January 13, 2000  Boulder, Colorado - What happens to global weather systems if the earth warms up several more degrees Fahrenheit in the future? That's a question that the Pew Center on Global Climate Change in Arlington, Virginia wanted to know. So, they went to a climate expert Dr. Tom Wigley at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. Dr. Wigley received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Adelaide in Australia in 1967 and has become a climate expert. The past six years he has focused on computer models of earth weather systems to project the effects of ever-increasing greenhouse gasses. Recently, Dr. Wigley's computer research was released by the Pew Center.

Global Warming Alert from NOAA and U.K.

FACTS:

- 1998 was the warmest year on record globally.

- 1999 was the second warmest year on record
for both the U.S. and U. K.

- The earth warmed 1 degree Fahrenheit
between 1900 and 2000.

- The earth is projected to get 2 to 6 degrees F.
warmer by 2100.

- Ocean levels rose 4 to 10 inches
between 1900 and 2000.

- Ocean levels will rise 18 to 36 inches
higher by 2100.

"There's no question that greenhouse gasses are there, that they are going to increase and even if we started action now, it takes a long time for them to come out. They have a residence time of about 300 years in the atmosphere, so it's going to take a long time. We really have to do two things. One is we're going to have to learn to live with the world that has a different climate than it has today. And we're going to have to learn how to be more energy efficient."

- James Baker, Ph.D., Administrator, NOAA,
January 7, 2000

January 9, 2000  Washington, D. C. - Three massive storms with high winds swept across England and Europe in December knocking down 300 million trees in France alone. Scientists told the American Geophysical Union that the polar wind pattern has changed and "could be responsible for fiercer winter storms across western Europe and western North America."

Animals Attacked In Manheim, Pennsylvania

January 7, 2000  Manheim, Pennsylvania - Between December 31st, New Year's Eve, and January 1, 2000, a black Italian duck and several rabbits were attacked and killed in Manheim, Pennsylvania about fifteen miles northwest of Lancaster. Since then, more kills have extended to sheep and goats and now the State Dog Warden and Pennsylvania Game Commission are trying to find out what's responsible for the attacks. Their main suspect is a dog.

The first office to receive attack reports was the Penn Township Police, in Manheim. Police Chief Larry Snavely described what has happened so far.

Update – Unidentified “Arrowhead”-Shaped Object in California Sky

December 28, 1999  Bermuda Dunes, California - On December 26, 1999, I reported that a peculiar aerial object shaped like an arrowhead with the rear curved inward was observed for nearly an hour on December 21st by Dominic Tavares, a water treatment technician, and his 11-year-old son. Five helicopters circled below the strange craft. Father and son were traveling on the I-10 freeway just outside of Indio, California headed west towards the San Jacinto Mountains which rise above Palm Springs. Mr. Tavares subsequently mailed to me color drawings that he and his son independently drew. These drawings are now in the updated interview below.
