‘Canadian officials are struggling to determine why thousands of sea creatures have turned up dead on some beaches along the Bay of Fundy near Digby, Nova Scotia. So far, tests have found nothing out of the ordinary in the sea.

“We have ruled out the usual suspects,” said Kent Smedbol, manager of population ecology for Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), after scientists went out and examined the bay on Thursday. Oxygen levels, salinity, temperature, and water samples all came out normal, while the seabed showed no signs of a massive die-out.’

‘It is more than 120 years since H.G. Wells published The Time Machine, the novel that was to popularise the concept of time travel and lead to myriad stories on the theme.

But it is only now that we have finally developed a plotline for time travel that makes logical sense – and it has been penned by a machine.

The breakthrough involves the grandfather paradox – that favourite plaything of philosophers where somebody travels into the past and kills their own grandfather, preventing the existence of one of their parents, and therefore their own.

But the problem is, if the protagonist doesn’t exist, then how could they go back in time to set off the chain of events in the first place?’

‘Thousands of fish from several different species have died in a massive fish kill in two rivers in the US state of Maryland, with officials saying the aquatic environment was robbed of oxygen by toxic algal bloom.

Maryland Department of the Environment investigators told The Baltimore Sun that they believe a toxic algae known as ‘Karlodinium venifecum’ is to blame for the deaths of about 10,000 fish in the Gunpowder and Bird rivers.’

‘In late 1946, Admiral Richard E. Byrd led troops from the U.S., Britain and Australia on a mission to Antarctica called “Operation Highjump“. This mission involved 4700 soldiers, 13 ships, and 33 aircraft in what was officially called a research expedition.

The part of the story that is seldom told outside of official circles is what Byrd encountered there. While conventional knowledge of World War II states that Germany was defeated in Europe, which is true, little is often said about the Nazi escape South to their bases in Antarctica. While the Allied powers won World War II on the ground in Europe due to their industrial might, the Nazi’s had far more advanced technology, and many members of Hitler’s regime reportedly fled to the icy continent after the war.’

‘A stunning image showing off the wondrous spirals of the ‘Eye of Africa’, also known as the Richat structure, has been captured by French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The incredible structure, located in the Sahara desert in Mauritania, has a diameter of 50km (31 miles) and was originally thought to be a meteorite-impact crater. Scientists now believe, however, it was formed through erosion.’

‘It seems that the U.S. military is geared up for a permanent cyber war with the people and various governments of this globe.

Though tensions with Russia may have been temporarily alleviated with the election of Donald Trump – who has signaled for peace with Putin – the long game is much more complicated.

With new powers in Washington taking shape in the next administration, one faction in government was quietly, subtly parading its power.’

‘In 1950, physicist Enrico Fermi asked a very important question over lunch at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Based on the number of galaxies we know exist, how many stars are inside those galaxies, and how many planets potentially orbit those stars, probability states that there should be alien life. So, where is everybody?

This question – known as the Fermi Paradox – raised a lot of eyebrows, because it’s a logical thought when considering just how vast our Universe is. While there are many different hypotheses out there that attempt to concoct an answer, one of the best and most thought-provoking is the zoo hypothesis.

The zoo hypothesis was thought up in 1973 by MIT radio astronomer John Ball. He posited that, yes, there might well be intelligent aliens out there, but maybe they are simply ignoring us, forcing us to live in a cosmic ‘zoo’ or wildlife sanctuary where they can monitor our activity without disturbing it.’

‘Two soul searching criminals from the state of Georgia claim God told them to break into an Alaskan research facility and blow up a machine that contained the spirits of the dead, according to police.

The men were arrested before they could embark on their supernatural quest, however. Officials say they were found in possession of an arsenal of weapons that “looked like something out of a movie; one where a small army was headed to war.”

Speaking to Alaska Dispatch News, Coffee County detective Michael Vickers said Michael Mancil, 30, and James Dryden Jr., 22, told police “that God told them to go and blow this machine up that kept souls, so souls could be released.”’
