ETs Exist, Renowned Scientists Say, On 'Aliens: The Definitive Guide'

The Milky Way galaxy is so big, that there's no doubt, statistically speaking, that ETs exist.

That's what several prominent scientists say on the month-long series "Are We Alone?," airing on the Science Channel.

But what do these otherworldly denizens look like? Are they smart or dumb? Will we ever come face to face with them?

On the first installment of "Aliens: The Definitive Guide," premiering tonight, famed theoretical physicist Michio Kaku is among those who take a strong stand on the biggest questions about the search for intelligent life in the universe.

BBC Radio 2 - Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully, Pilot

Katherine Parkinson and Julian Rhind-Tutt star in a new sitcom about an alien invasion of a small English village.

The Geonin are not your typical alien invaders. Instead of the usual all-at-once approach to global domination (which usually fails, they've noticed) they've decided to start small. They've encircled a small English village with an impenetrable heat wave, preventing anything coming in or out. With Cresdon Green as their base, they will learn about humankind, using their knowledge to effectively and efficiently spread their domination over the rest of the world, bit by bit.

'Underwear bomber' was working for the CIA | World news | The Guardian

A would-be "underwear bomber" involved in a plot to attack a US-based jet was in fact working as an undercover informer with Saudi intelligence and the CIA, it has emerged.

The revelation is the latest twist in an increasingly bizarre story about the disruption of an apparent attempt by al-Qaida to strike at a high-profile American target using a sophisticated device hidden in the clothing of an attacker.

Leon Brittan and the Paedophile Information Exchange | spotlight

It appears that the rights of child abusers were given prominence over the rights of children. I’m sure Mr. Brittan had a reason for his failure to act on child abuse but we may never find out due to his inability to recall events from the 1980s.

Celebrities, politicians and VIPs had their sex attack files hidden from investigating officers by top brass police | Mail Online

Hundreds of files on celebrities, politicians and other VIPs accused of sex attacks and abuse were so heavily protected by senior police that investigating officers could not access them, it emerged today.

Information on high profile suspects was marked as 'secret' or 'restricted' and only available to a small number of officers - a system which may have helped prolific offenders like Jimmy Savile and MP Cyril Smith escape prosecution.

The approach to sensitive files was designed to stop officers from leaking information to the media, experts say.

BP Ignored Halliburton Blowout Risk Warning, Witness Says - Bloomberg

BP Plc (BP/) was warned days before its Gulf of Mexico well exploded that its decision to forgo 15 stabilizers meant the effort to seal gas leaks with cement could result in an increased blowout risk called “channeling,” a Halliburton Co. (HAL) witness testified.

Nathaniel Chaisson, Halliburton’s cementing services coordinator, testified today in New Orleans federal court as part of a trial to determine fault for the disaster. Chaisson said he reminded BP’s well-site leader and drilling engineer that his company recommended 21 stabilizers to center the drill pipe in the well.

Chaisson said BP told him on April 16, 2010, four days before the blast, that there would only be six stabilizers, also known as centralizers. Jesse Gagliano, a Halliburton engineer, advised BP five days before the explosion that the well had a “severe risk” of natural gas leaks with only six of the devices, which could lead to an explosive blowout, according to court filings.

Paedophile MP cover-up claim: Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll removed from sex abuse probe after naming politicians as suspects - Mirror Online

Tasked with flushing out ­paedophiles preying on vulnerable youngsters at children’s homes, Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll relished the challenge.

But the officer suddenly found himself booted off the case and put on a ­disciplinary after revealing ­politicians were named among the suspects.

At least one of the figures is understood to have been an MP.

And former Labour councillor Anna Tapsell claims she was visited by a police chief to “warn her off” after she raised concerns that detectives would not ­properly investigate allegations of ­paedophile activity in care homes.

Mr Driscoll launched his probe into child sex abuse claims in the South London borough of Lambeth in 1998.

But he claims Scotland Yard began meddling as soon as the politicians were named.

Cyprus is endgame in plot by politicians and banksters to steal wealth of citizens - European Economic News | EU Budgets, Trends & Spending | Irish Tim - Fri, Mar 22, 2013

Cyprus was a small, controlled experiment by the political and economic authorities, designed to test the water and prepare public opinion for the next phase of our enslavement.

Although there have been determined efforts by tame media voices to play down the significance – to focus attention on the Russian dimension, or the apparently belated attempts to shift the thresholds of the proposed “tax” on bank deposits to exclude small savers – the most penetrative analysis of this development has been offered by Cypriot protesters bearing placards with just one word: “thieves”.

Exclusive: Suspected EastEnders paedophile ring investigated | The Sun |News

PAEDOPHILES working on EastEnders preyed on under-age fans who hung around the set hoping for autographs, police believe.

A team of officers are investigating a group of “mature adults” thought to have been employed by the BBC soap in the 1980s and ’90s.

It is believed parts of the EastEnders set in Elstree, Herts, have been searched.

Officers have also visited cheap hotels near the sprawling film studios, where EastEnders has been filmed since it began in 1985.

The movements of people connected with the show over a period of 20 years in various capacities have been monitored.

An insider said: “Arrests are very likely. This is bigger than anyone imagined.”

A six-member Special Operations unit has been set up to work full-time on the investigation — an indicator of the serious nature of the claims.

The officers have been seconded from Child Protection units at Scotland Yard and Herts Police.

The highest court in the land controversially sat in secret for the first time in its history today but insisted it had reached the decision with "great reluctance".

The ruling is highly significant at a time when the Government's contentious plans for secret courts have caused outrage amongst human rights groups and led to several high profile Liberal Democrat resignations.
