    The White House has said there is no sign of aliens – but it is still looking. Staff were responding to a petition that accused the government of covering up contact with life beyond Earth. Phil Larson, from the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy, officially denied knowledge of alien life and denied they had withheld information from the public. He promised scientists are still on the search for extraterrestrial life. 'The U.S. government has no evidence that any life exists outside our planet, or that an extraterrestrial presence has contacted or engaged any member of the human...

    CERRO AZUL, Panama -- It looks a bit like a small, portly alien from the movie "E.T." or Gollum's long-lost cousin, but officials haven't the slightest idea what a creature found just east of Panama City really is. The creature was first found by four teenagers playing near a creek in the community of Cerro Azul. According to a local TV station, Telemetro, the teenagers spotted the creature crawling out from a cave. They said it started moving toward them. Fearing for their safety, they pelted the beast with sticks and rocks. After the barrage killed the creature, the teenagers...

    FORMER NASA astronaut and moon-walker Dr Edgar Mitchell - a veteran of the Apollo 14 mission - has stunningly claimed aliens do exist. And he says extra-terrestrials have visited Earth on several occasions - but the alien contact has been repeatedly covered up by governments for six decades. Dr Mitchell, 77, said during a radio interview that sources at the space agency who had had contact with aliens described the beings as 'little people who look strange to us.'

    Yet another busy news week. As I write this, Fox News is breaking (ahead of CNN, ABC and USA Today) the news that Bobby Cutts has been taken into custody for the murder of Jessie Davis. The man who lost his family in a violent Illinois shooting has been charged with their murder. A pair of naked twenty-somethings plummeted to their deaths from a roof top. The US and North Korea are again engaged in talks regarding North Korea's nuclear program. Iran still has a president who fancies himself the Bringer of the Apocalypse and Syria is still his willing...

    LONDON, June 8 (Reuters Life!) - The creaking and splashing sounds of Europe's largest glacier slipping into an ocean grave are just a phone call away now that an artist has installed a microphone in its surrounding waters. Glaswegian artist Katie Paterson was moved to set up the line after hallucinating about Iceland's giant Vatnajokull glacier during a bout of fever. The link encourages people to connect emotionally with the glacier, she told Reuters from her tent on the Icelandic shoreline. "It is really poetic: a river of ice slowly disintegrating, quite discreetly, quite invisibly. Sheets of ice are constantly...

    Air Force colonel reports lights 'not of this world' Snaps images above Arkansas: 'I have no idea what they were' In the wake of reports of unidentified objects flying over Chicago's O'Hare Airport, a retired Air Force pilot has his own mystery with a rash of bright, colorful lights he photographed hovering in skies over western Arkansas last week. "I believe these lights were not of this world, and I feel a duty and responsibility to come forward," Col. Brian Fields told WND. "I have no idea what they were." Fields, 61, was cooking chicken at his Van Buren, Ark.,...

    Starstream Research interviews author Terry James about his novel, and the truth behind the dark dimension of alien technology and otherworldly beings. "So, believing God's Word as absolute Truth, I have to believe they are presently intertwining themselves with government and science in clandestine, dark project areas. How aware governmental officials --in the black, covert regions, or other--are in these things, I wouldn't conjecture. But, someone, somewhere, has to know something is beyond what we consider normal." SSR: Beginning in August 2006, Starstream Research is examining the possibility that the human race is under the influence of otherworldly intelligence. The...

Phil Hochmuth, Network World Friday, December 16, 2005 Along with the Howard Stern Show, another radio endeavor involving alien life forms is going off the air this week; SETI@Home, a grid supercomputer project for detecting signs of extra terrestrial life from deep space, officially ended December 15. "We'll be shutting down the "SETI@home Classic" project on December 15," read an e-mail sent by SETI@Home administrators at the University of California at Berkeley, where the project started in 1999.

    Nokia Corp., the world's largest cellphone maker, unveiled its first handset with a built-in hard drive, taking aim at the market for iPods and other stand-alone digital-music players. Nokia, of Espoo, Finland, said the cellphone, earmarked to go on sale world-wide in the fourth quarter, will be able to store 3,000 songs and have a built-in Wi-Fi radio and camera. Dubbed the Nokia N91, the device will have a retail price of about €700, or about $908, before any subsidies by cellphone-service providers, Nokia officials said. That price compares with about $200 for an iPod mini with a similar storage...

    The U.S. and other world governments already have detailed secret plans for first contact.When UFOs land, a series of plans created to deal with nuclear emergencies and biological attacks will be activated. Within the scientific community, the question is no longer whether extraterrestrial life exists, but if ET is smart enough to do long division. Scientists are of two minds regarding the existence of extraterrestrial intelligence. Skeptics acknowledge simple life-forms might be found on other planets, but insist that intelligent life is unique to Earth. Their belief is based on the assumption that Earth possesses unique physical attributes, including a...

    The late Carl Sagan once asked this question, “What does it mean for a civilization to be a million years old? We have had radio telescopes and spaceships for a few decades; our technical civilization is a few hundred years old... an advanced civilization millions of years old is as much beyond us as we are beyond a bush baby or a macaque.” Although any conjecture about such advanced civilizations is a matter of sheer speculation, one can still use the laws of physics to place upper and lower limits on these civilizations. In particular, now that the laws of...

    I once thought that worrying about what we should broadcast to extraterrestrials made as much sense as fretting over the small talk I’d venture with King Carl XVI Gustaf if I won the Nobel Prize. I reckoned there was no need to dwell on the problem, as it was both hypothetical and irrelevant.

    But actor expounds on his belief in UFOs Dan Aykroyd was a bit of a Grinch during his junket for “Christmas with the Kranks.” The star startled some when he launched into a tirade against American consumerism — and then further baffled them when he held forth on UFOs. “Greetings and death to our enemies,” Aykroyd began the interview. When one reporter asked what enemy the star was referring to, Aykroyd replied: “Well, the common enemy in North America is the Western consumer. The consumer has driven oil up to $50 a barrel so we have to have these wars.”...

    LAKELAND, FLA. - Urban legends are supposed to be legends and that's all. But if you ask Jennifer Ward about the Florida skunk ape, she will tell you it stepped out of the mists of myth and into reality. "I never thought anything like that was out there before," Ward, 30, said recently. "But I know there is now." Ward's encounter with the hairy creature came in August, about a week after Hurricane Charley, along a rural stretch of road as she was driving home from a friend's house. Her daughters were asleep in the back seat and it was...

    BOISE - UFOs are showing a keen interest in our nuclear weapons facilities, says investigator Robert Hastings, who has spent countless hours analyzing documents dealing with UFO sightings at nuclear missile launch sites and research labs in the United States over the past several decades. "You have reference to these objects hovering, racing away at blinding speed," he told Idaho 2 News. "There is no evidence we have an aircraft that can do that or anyone else on earth." Hastings, who has devoted countless hours researching UFOs and the U.S. government's reaction to them, was in Boise for a lecture...
