    One of Egypt’s Biggest Secrets... Not Made by Human Hands?

    The Serapeum Saqqara Temple is located in the northwest of the Djoser Pyramid in the Saqqara archaeological site. According to archaeologists, it was the burial ground of the Apis cows, the embodiment of God Ptah - the god of creation and power of Egypt. The Saqqara Cemetery is located near Memphis, Egypt. It is thought to have been built by Ramesses II (the third pharaoh of the 19th Dynasty in Egyptian history) around 1300 BC. However, there are researchers that believe such giant boxes never contained giant bulls. So what in fact was inside them and why was the contents removed. Quite clearly, they could have not been made by the ancient Egyptians without secret advanced technology. What are the mysteries behind the Serapeum Saqqara Temple?

    NASA Simulation Shows What Happens When Stars Get Too Close to Black Holes




    From left to right, this illustration shows four snapshots of a virtual Sun-like star as it approaches a black hole with 1 million times the Sun’s mass. The star stretches, looses some mass, and then begins to regain its shape as it moves away from the black hole.


    What happens to a star when it strays too close to a monster black hole? Astronomers have wondered why some stars are ripped apart, while others manage to survive a close encounter with a lurking black hole, only a little worse for wear. To figure out the dynamics of such an event, scientists built a supercomputer simulation and tested it out on eight different types of stars. The stars were sent towards a virtual black hole, 1 million times the mass of the Sun.

    What they found was surprising.

    The stars they modeled ranged in size from about one-tenth to 10 times the Sun’s mass, all with varying densities. All the stars were sent to about 24 million miles away from the black hole at their closest.

    The good news is that the Sun-like star survived its close approach (good news for us, anyway). The other stars that survived had 0.15, 0.3, and 0.7 solar masses. But the stars that were 0.4, 0.5, and 3, and 10 times the Sun’s mass were completely torn apart. But why the disparity?

    The researchers realized it wasn’t the star’s size that made the difference for its survival. Instead, the difference between survival and destruction was dependent on the star’s internal density.

    Supercomputer Simulations Test Star-Destroying Black Holes

    Watch as eight stars skirt a black hole 1 million times the mass of the Sun in these supercomputer simulations. As they approach, all are stretched and deformed by the black hole’s gravity. Some are completely pulled apart into a long stream of gas, a cataclysmic phenomenon called a tidal disruption event. Others are only partially disrupted, retaining some of their mass and returning to their normal shape after their horrific encounter.

    These simulations are the first to combine the physical effects of Einstein’s theory of general relativity with realistic stellar density models. The virtual stars range from about one tenth to 10 times the Sun’s mass.

    Star Daughter: One Man's Lifelong Experiences with Extraterrestrials

    Born in New York, Tony Ditata had his first UFO sighting at age seventeen, while walking outside his home in Brentwood. A few years later, he experienced a dramatic face-to-face encounter with a gray alien on the local golf course. Before long, he started having memories of being taken onboard a craft. Soon more encounters followed: sightings, missing-time, onboard experiences and more face-to-face encounters. When Tony realized and finally accepted that he was a UFO abductee, he sought regressive hypnosis and recalled an incredible experience where he and his girlfriend were taken onboard a massive disc which had landed alongside the road in upstate New York.

    Google Engineers Claim They Were Fired For Following 'Don’t Be Evil’ Policy





    Three ex-Google employees claim that Google has a contractual obligation to abide by its well-known “don’t be evil” policy, and they are suing the company for allegedly terminating them for calling out Google’s “evil” doings, via NPR.

    “Don’t be evil” has been a part of Google’s Code of Conduct since the early 2000s. The company changed this to 'Do the right thing' in 2019.

    The former workers Sophie Waldman, Rebecca Rivers, and Paul Duke were fired — in addition to a fourth employee, Laurence Berland — in November 2019 for allegedly violating the company’s data security policies, however, they claim they didn’t leak any confidential information. Earlier this year, the acting head of the National Labor Relations Board said that Google “arguably violated” US labor laws by firing the three employees, alleging that Google terminated the employees in retaliation for their activism.

    In the lawsuit filed in the state of California, the group accuses Google of partaking in “evil,” and subsequently punishing them for calling the company out on it. The lawsuit states that at the time Waldman, Rivers, and Duke were hired by Google, they all signed a contract that included the “don’t be evil” rule. So when the employees questioned and petitioned against Google’s controversial cloud computing contract with the Trump administration’s Customs and Border Patrol in 2019, they believed that they were in accordance with their contracts, citing the potential instances of human rights abuses at the border.

    Judge Orders Google to Disclose Secret Anti-Union Documents

    A National Labor Relations Board judge ruled that Google must “immediately” produce more than 70 subpoenaed documents related to a secret anti-union campaign, known as code name “Project Vivian,” that Google ran to crush a union drive at the company.

    The files include internal communications and strategy documents created in conjunction with IRI Consultants, a "labor relations" firm that Google contracted to craft and amplify anti-union messaging at the company. The judge wrote that Google sought to withhold the documents in ongoing court proceedings related to the firing of three activist employees by improperly citing them as legally privileged communications with their attorneys.

    The anti-union documents include “campaign materials prepared for distribution to employees, training materials for staff on how to campaign against unionization among persons they manage, anti-union messaging and message amplification advice for [Google], and updates on how the campaign is being viewed among employees and/or in various reports.”

    The subpoena is part of an ongoing National Labor Relations Board hearing involving the three fired Google software engineers who filed unfair labor practice complaints alleging that Google illegally terminated them in 2019 for engaging in collective activity.

    Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    More than just a place for worship, a church serves as a gathering site for many communities around the world. Often, these holy places have a grave-yard … arguably a more frightful site,when left in nature's lap and the passage of time. Could such churches and grave-yards from around the world — the snapshots of vivid houses of worship in former times — be haunted?

    The True Cost of the Military-Industrial Complex

    In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at the environmental and social cost of the military and militarism. I narrow in on the United States military-industrial complex because it is by far the biggest military machine in the world. I look at how the military and the military-industrial complex is a massive polluter in terms of both emissions and chemical waste. In addition, the video looks at whether or not these environmental and monetary burdens caused by the military-industrial complex are justified. Have the multitude of wars the United States has wage been just, or are they manifestations of imperialism. Ultimately, the video connects environmental destruction with military imperialism and concludes that demilitarization is the only truly effective answer to the carbon footprint of the military.

    Scientific mysteries ...



    The Extraordinary Spiral in LL Pegasi



    What created the strange spiral structure on the upper left? No one is sure, although it is likely related to a star in a binary star system entering the planetary nebula phase, when its outer atmosphere is ejected. The huge spiral spans about a third of a light year across and, winding four or five complete turns, has a regularity that is without precedent. Given the expansion rate of the spiral gas, a new layer must appear about every 800 years, a close match to the time it takes for the two stars to orbit each other. The star system that created it is most commonly known as LL Pegasi, but also AFGL 3068 and IRAS 23166+1655.

    While a leading hypothesis for the illumination is light reflected from nearby stars, exactly why the spiral glows is itself ... a mystery.

    What Happens When You Remove Your Body Hair?

    We’re all pretty invested in what our body hair looks like. But why exactly do we have body hair in the first place, and what happens when we remove it?

    On average, we’re covered in about 5 million hair follicles. That’s around the same number as other non-human primates; ours just isn’t as visible because most of it is the short, soft ‘peach fuzz’ called ‘vellus hair’. Our fuzz has a job: it helps us regulate our temperature by helping our sweat evaporate. When we’re cold, miniscule muscles in our skin contract around those hairs and make them stand on end—that’s what goosebumps are.

    The longer, coarser, more distinctive hair on our head, face, legs, and groin is called ‘terminal hair’. Terminal hair is what we tend to be more preoccupied with. It’s found in specific places for a reason. Your eyelashes and eyebrows keep sweat and debris out of your eyes (with the added bonus of helping us express ourselves and recognize each other). Terminal hair on the head, legs, chest, and other large surfaces also regulates our temperature, and may protect our skin from UV damage and prickly, pokey stuff in our environment.

    However, these are just our best guesses as to WHY we have body hair in the places we do. For evolutionary biology, body hair is actually still something of an enigma.
