    OMG! Have you ever seen something like this? Have you ever seen a bright-blue lightning bolt shooting upward from thunderclouds? Such Blue jets are difficult to spot from the ground, since the electrical discharges erupt from the tops of thunderclouds. But what about from space?

And the images are bombastic: The above artist impression features a lightning in clouds seen from space followed by a blue flash that lasts 10 micro seconds,...

    Posted on Tue, Dec. 09, 2003 French student looks for lefties among earliest cave painters By ALEXANDRA WITZE The Dallas Morning News Prehistoric shamans used to mark the transition from the real world to the spirit world, anthropologists think, by blowing pigments around their hands onto cave walls. These ghostly hand prints, which still dot European caves more than 10,000 years later, now serve a less ethereal purpose — telling scientists how many of those shamans were left-handed. New research shows that the frequency of left-handed painters — 23 percent — is the same today as it was back then....

    Those of us who care about freedom in The West have got our backs against the wall. Leftist PC crap has infiltrated universities, justice systems, politics and even police forces in places like the police state of Victoria where I have the misfortune to live. We need to look elsewhere for hope. There are two countries profoundly more religious than Australia to which I look for this hope. First there is America - the land of the free where the first amendment gives your freedom more protection than most other countries can. Then there is Indonesia, my second home, where...

    In October, Indonesian diplomats and Muslim clerics stepped off a plane in China. While the diplomats were there to finalize deals to ensure millions of doses reached Indonesian citizens, the clerics had a much different concern: Whether the COVID-19 vaccine was permissible for use under Islamic law. As companies race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine and countries scramble to secure doses, questions about the use of pork products - banned by some religious groups - has raised concerns about the possibility of disrupted immunization campaigns. Pork-derived gelatin has been widely used as a stabilizer to ensure vaccines remain safe and...

In a 30-second clip circulating on Twitter this week, The video comes with the caption "Alhamdulillah piaraan baru udah nyampe", which translates to "Praise God, the new pet has arrived". While the Triceratops looks unnervingly realistic, it is actually a very elaborate costume that was done up for Mojosemi Forest Park's promotional holiday video, and hidden underneath the dinosaur were a bunch of park employees, Indonesian media reported....

    On this date in 1947, Dutch troops fighting (vainly) to keep Indonesia under colonial sway perpetrated one of the most notorious massacres of the Indonesian War of Independence. During a Dutch offensive, Royal Netherlands Army forces fell on the West Java town of Rawagede (today, Balongsari) on December 9, 1947 and demanded to know the whereabouts of an Indonesian rebel they were hunting. The villagers didn’t know, but the Dutch were convinced that they did —and so they began marching men and boys as young as 13 years old to nearby fields. Squatting and kneeling row upon row, the men...

    It is Pearl Harbour Day now in Australia. My father served in the field ambulance of the 2nd 14th Battalion of the Second Australian Imperial Force in 1945. He camped in Morotai for three weeks in June before sailing to the war’s final major battle, the second Battle of Balikpapan. This story imagines what might have happened if someone like my dad had made friends with General Douglas MacArthur. If we are to be free, than our imaginations must be free.

    Jakarta (AFP) - Indonesia's social affairs minister was arrested Sunday for allegedly taking $1.2 million in bribes linked to food aid for those hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
