‘Hundreds of residents of Kalachi, a small town near a former Soviet Union uranium mine in Kazakhstan, have been suffering from a mysterious sleeping sickness that causes them to fall asleep for two to six days and wake up with significant memory loss.
While the eerie sickness was first reported in 2010, cases have been emerging in droves since March 2013. Other symptoms include feeling dizzy, being unable to stand up and extreme fatigue. The Russian Times reports that eight children fell asleep within an hour during the first week of school, and several months later, 60 people were hit with the disease on the same day.’
‘The pilot of the doomed Germanwings Airbus A320 may have deliberately locked his co-pilot and crew out of the cockpit minutes before it crashed into an Alpine mountainside killing 150 people, it was claimed today.
Audio files taken from the black box recorder suggested that one of the pilots was forced to try and smash down the door after being unable to enter the flight deck, according to the New York Times.
Experienced pilots today told MailOnline that under normal conditions crew have an emergency access code to enter the cockpit through the locked door.
They can only be stopped from using it if whoever is inside the cockpit manually – and intentionally – disables it.’

‘Now with the Germanwings jetliner incident, we have the New York Times “pulling a CNN,” you might say. According to this NYT story, the memory card of one of the airplane’s two black boxes is missing, and the story claims it must have been “destroyed by the impact.”
“Investigators have so far been unable to retrieve data from one black box, and the other was badly damaged and its memory card was missing,” reports the New York Times.
If you read the logic of that sentence, it seems to state that no data was recovered from either black box, right?
But then in the exact same story, the NYT also reports, “Remi Jouty, director of France’s Bureau of Investigation and Analysis, confirmed that audio of voices had been recovered from the black box in the crash of the Germanwings plane in the French Alps.”‘
‘French air investigators were urgently examining a black box cockpit voice recorder (CVR) from a Germanwings Airbus A320 as the retrieval effort resumed on the mountainside where the aircraft crashed in the southern Alps, killing all 150 people on board.
Investigators said they were puzzled as to why the crew did not send out a mayday or distress signal as flight U49525 rapidly lost altitude for eight minutes, or why the pilot did not change course to avoid smashing into a rocky ravine at around 430mph (700kmh).
In the last 10 minutes of the flight there was total radio silence from the crew of the Barcelona–Düsseldorf flight operated by Lufthansa’s low-cost subsidiary.’
‘In November 2014, plasma physicist Dr John Brandenburg revealed his theory that an ancient civilisation on Mars was massacred in a nuclear attack.
Now, he’s back, and he’s going to be presenting new evidence for his theory at a Nasa-sponsored conference today.
He claims there is no other explanation for his proposal that a ‘weapon’s signature’ remains from the attack on Mars.’
‘A 240 year old doll that can write, a clockwork creation by Pierre Jaquet-Droz, a Swiss watchmaker. The doll is able to write any custom text up to 40 letters long, and it uses a goose feather to write, which he inks from time to time, including a shake of the wrist to prevent ink from spilling. His eyes follow the text being written, and the head moves when he takes some ink. You can view this doll in person at the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire of Neuchâtel, in Switzerland.’
‘A woodland trust has today been forced to deny it is ‘anti-fairy’ after it launched a crackdown on the number of doors being nailed to trees as homes for the tiny ethereal beings.
Fairy control has had to be brought in at Wayford Woods in Somerset because it has been overwhelmed by hundreds of sprite homes.
Families with children flock to the woodland to nail doors to trees and leave notes for the fairies at the beauty spot near Crewkerne – but critics say it has descended into a fairy ‘free-for-all’.
Wayford Trustee Steven Acreman said: ‘We’ve got little doors everywhere. We’re not anti-fairies but it’s in danger of getting out of control.’
‘Astronomers are puzzled by the latest images captured by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft. They show that there are two spots on Ceres that are much brighter than the rest of the dwarf planet’s rocky and pockmarked terrain.
The probe is due to enter Ceres’ orbit on March 6. It has already begun sending back the first photos of the dwarf planet that NASA has snapped since 2004. Back then, pictures from the Hubble Telescope showed a white area. Later, photos revealed that the white area is really a bright spot. Now scientists say there is a second, slightly dimmer, yet still noticeably bright spot next to the first…and they don’t know what’s causing them.’
