  • US admits to running secret UFO programme 

    Golocal247.com news

    The Pentagon ran a secretive five year program to investigate UFO sightings, spending $22 million before it was shut down due to cost, it has been revealed. For the first time, the Department of Defense has acknowledged the existence of the mysterious Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program run from an office in a quiet corner of its sprawling headquarters. There, between 2007 and 2012, a team of researchers working with experts in Nevada probed reports of alien life form and strange sightings over the US skies - a real life versions of the hit TV show The X Files. The enterprise was the passion project of Harry Reid, the retired Senate Majority leader. “I’m not embarrassed or ashamed or sorry I got this thing going,” Mr. Reid said in an interview with the New York Times who first reported the story. “I think it’s one of the good things I did in my congressional service. I’ve done something that no one has done before.” Stock image of a UFO However, although some of the unit's work remains classified, it is not thought any convincing evidence of extraterristrials was discovered. “If anyone says they have the answers now, they’re fooling themselves, Mr Reid said We do not know.” But, he added: “we have to start someplace.” Documents show how the unit, working with a Las Vegas aerospace company run by Mr Reid's long time friend Robert Bigelow, investigated sightings of aircraft moving at high speeds with no signs of propulsion or that hovered mysteriously. Officials with the program also studied videos of encounters between unknown objects and American military aircraft  including one released in August of a white oval object, about the size of a commercial plane, chased by two US Navy fighter jets from the aircraft carrier Nimitz off the coast of San Diego in 2004. Yet in 2012, the program was seemingly wound up to the frustration of many. Visitors to the International UFO Museum in Roswell, New Mexico examine a glass-encased alien prop used in the movie "Roswell" Thomas Crosson, a Pentagon spokesman said:“It was determined that there were other, higher priority issues that merited funding, and it was in the best interest of the DoD (Department of Defence) to make a change.” Some say the shadowy work continues despite the funding being cut off. Fornmer  military intelligence official, Luis Elizondo, who led the unit, claims he continued his research and continued to work from his office in teh Pentagon until October when he resigned in protest at what he descirbed as excessive secrecy and internal opposition. In his resignation letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis, he reportedly wrote: “Why aren’t we spending more time and effort on this issue?” U.F.O.s have been repeatedly investigated over the decades in the United States, including by the American military. In 1947, the Air Force began a series of studies that investigated more than 12,000 claimed U.F.O. sightings before it was officially ended in 1969.  The project, which included a study code-named Project Blue Book, started in 1952, concluded that most sightings involved stars, clouds, conventional aircraft or spy planes, although 701 remained unexplained. Robert C. Seamans Jr., the secretary of the Air Force at the time, said in a memorandum announcing the end of Project Blue Book that it “no longer can be justified either on the ground of national security or in the interest of science.”

  • Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte backs same-sex marriage

    Golocal247.com news

    Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has declared himself in favour of same-sex marriage in an about turn that will put him on a collision course with the country's powerful Catholic Church. Speaking at the weekend at a gathering of the LGBT community in his home city of Davao, southern Philippines, he vowed to protect their rights and invited them to nominate a representative to work in his government. "I am for (same) sex marriage if that is the trend of modern times," he said. "If that will add to your happiness, I am for it." Mr Duterte was quoted previously in the local media as opposing same-sex marriage, using the gender issue to attack liberal Western countries who allow it, especially those criticising his brutal war against drugs which has killed thousands of Filipino citizens. Profile | Rodrigo Duterte But according to the local Inquirer, Mr Duterte dramatically backtracked from earlier remarks in his latest speech, revealing that he had gay family members and joking that he once toyed with the idea of being bisexual. "Why impose a morality that is no longer working and almost passe," he said, adding that "there will be no oppression" during his term in office and that his government would recognise the LGBT community's "importance in society". His shift will put him at odds with the Catholic Church who have already strongly criticised his bloody crackdown on drugs. The country's powerful bishops earlier this year voiced concern about any moves to legalise same-sex unions. While most Western countries have legalised same-sex marriage, with Australia being the latest to do so, the LGBT community still faces widespread discrimination across Asia. Only Vietnam and Taiwan have made progress towards marriage equality but have yet to enshrine the right to marry a member of the same sex in law.

  • Bones, teeth, skulls and a finger - Vatican issues new rules forbidding the trade of saints' relics

    Golocal247.com news

    They range from the finger of “doubting” St Thomas to the head of St Catherine of Siena, but holy relics must on no account be traded or sold, the Vatican has decreed. The Holy See issued new guidelines for the preservation and display of saints’ relics, which once fueled a thriving trade in the Middle Ages, with bits of skin, hair, teeth and organs exchanged between abbeys and monasteries. Websites and religious artefact shops offer saintly remains, sometimes of dubious provenance, for sale to devotees. Ebay is full of such items, including an “antique brass case with the relics of three French missionaries killed in Vietnam” and an “ornate case with a relic of St Mary Magdalene dei Pazzi, an Italian nun.” Visitors admire the Holy Shroud, the 14ft-long linen revered by some as the burial cloth of Jesus, on display at the Cathedral of Turin. Credit: AP One Catholic wrote on the online auction site: “Many good, faithful Catholics are buying relics on Ebay. Unfortunately,opportunity gives way to some unscrupulous sellers who deal in fakes,  forgeries and unbelievable overpricing of relics and so it is buyer beware.” Such practises must not be tolerated, the Holy See said. “The trade and sale of relics is absolutely prohibited,” the Congregation for the Causes of Saints decreed in a lengthy set of guidelines for dioceses throughout the Catholic world. Nor can relics be displayed “in unauthorised or profane places” or used in sacrilegious rituals, ruled the department, which oversees the beatification and canonisation of worthy Catholics. The dismemberment of a saint’s body is also strictly prohibited without the Vatican’s permission, the office said. Nuns place on the altar the relics of five new saints during an open-air canonization ceremony led by Pope Benedict XVI, in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican, in 2009. Credit: AP Churches and basilica, many of them in Italy and the Holy Land, are custodians of a range of grisly relics, including the tongue of St Anthony of Padua, the body of St Mark and blood from St Januarius, the patron saint of Naples, who was martyred in the fourth century AD. Known as San Gennaro in Italian, he is revered by many Neapolitans, with a ceremony held three times a year in which a vial of his congealed blood “miraculously” liquefies. One of the most famous relics in the world is the Shroud of Turin, a frayed length of cloth in which Christ is believed to have been buried after his crucifixion, while the purported skull of St Valentine is kept in an ancient church close to the Circus Maximus in Rome. The relics can be displayed in holy places only if they carry  a certificate attesting to their authenticity, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints said.
