Please note that the person who takes these videos makes it a point to always talk in a Miss Piggy voice, likely because humour is the one of the only ways to get people to pay attention to the events transpiring around us.
Regardless, the footage is authentic and part of a growing body of filmed evidence of something strange occurring over that state.
If the voice annoys you (the person's actually pretty funny in parts), just mute it - it's the footage itself that's important.
And, according to a report yesterday, the most stunning light show in the planet’s history could happen as soon as this year.Earth will undoubtedly have a front row seat when the dying red supergiant star Betelgeuse finally blows itself into oblivion.
The explosion will be so bright that even though the star in the Orion constellation is 640 light-years away, it will still turn night into day and appear like there are two suns in the sky for a few weeks.
The only real debate is over exactly when it will happen. Read More...
Note: Will be kind of nice having 24 hrs sunlight for a few weeks, but I'm not sure if our planet as a whole would be jumping with joy at this future event. Do our plants, flowers, trees, oceans etc.. not need day and night to complete their cycle? If anyone out there could enlighten us on what affect this event would have to our planet, please do not hesitate to leave a comment.
One year after Haiti earthquake, corporations profit while people suffer - Does anyone remember that over 300.000 PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES?
The details of a recent lawsuit, as reported by Business Week, highlights the ways in which contractors - including some of the same players who profited from Hurricane Katrina-related reconstruction - have continued to use their political connections to gain profits from others' suffering, receiving contacts worth tens of millions of dollars while the Haitian people receive pennies at best. It also demonstrates ways in which charity and development efforts have mirrored and contributed to corporate abuses.Lewis Lucke, a 27-year veteran of the U.S. Agency for International Development (U.S. AID) was named U.S. special coordinator for relief and reconstruction after the earthquake. He worked this job for a few months, then immediately moved to the private sector, where he could sell his contacts and connections to the highest bidder. He quickly got a $30,000-a-month (plus bonuses) Read More...

Cynthia Ebinger, a geologist from the University of Rochester in New York, could hardly believe what the caller from the deserts of Ethiopia was saying. It was an employee at a mineralogy company -- and he reported that the famous Erta Ale volcano in northeastern Ethiopia was erupting. Ebinger, who has studied the volcano for years, was taken aback. The volcano's crater had always been filled with a bubbling soup of silver-black lava, but it had been decades since its last eruption.
NOTE: Image included - Erta Ale, a volcano in the deserts of Ethiopia’s Afar Triangle in northeastern Africa, erupts. The volcano’s crater had always had a bubbling soup of silver-black lava. But, in November 2010, it started erupting again after decades of lying dormant.
Vietnam's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development confirmed the news this week that more than 10,000 cows and buffalos died nationwide due to harsh weather conditions.Cattle have been dying throughout Vietnam, which has had a particularly intense winter.

Scattered on and alongside South First Street at the city limit marker in Union City were more than 70 bird carcasses Monday morning.
About 23 dead birds were found flattened on the roadway near Union City’s welcome sign and another 48 dead birds were scattered on the east side of the roadway.
The mysterious bird deaths mirror similar incidents earlier this month in Alabama, Arkansas, California and Louisiana.
It was during New Year’s weekend in Beebe, Ark., just northeast of Little Rock, that an estimated 5,000 blackbirds were found dead on the ground. Wildlife officials there offered their explanation that the birds were startled by New Year’s Eve fireworks and they ran into low lying structures such as chimneys, houses and trees, according to the Associated Press.

While there are numerous videos of PA sightings, so many in fact that we can't show all of them hear, here are two notable videos:
Pennsylvania UFO Orb Firing a Laser Beam (that only appears on infra-red):
(Yes, this video is from 2009, but the vast majority of PA sightings resemble this one, except for the fact that the object in this video is the only time they've been been spotted "firing" a beam)
This is the video that essentially started off the giant wave of UFO sightings in PA:
(You'll notice that in PA sightings, the UFOs take mostly one of two forms: either the "police lights" form in this second video, or the "orb" form in the first video)
We'll do our best to keep you updated on any significant updates on PA sightings. Just search Youtube for UFOs and Pennsylvania, and you'll find an additional wealth of archived and current videos.
Meanwhile, Guangdong added to the fears after China's biggest provincial economy increased its minimum wage by 18 to 26 per cent, the second big increase in less than a year.
The national economy expanded at an annual rate of 9.8 per cent in the final quarter of 2010, and grew 10.3 per cent for the entire year.
Consumer price inflation, a growing worry for policymakers, fell to 4.6 per cent in December from a more than two-year high of 5.1 per cent the previous month.
However, analysts said the moderation was mostly due to a high base the year before, and that prices would accelerate strongly in the first quarter of this year, complicating efforts to cool the economy without triggering a sharp slowdown.
Dozens of buffalo on a Sempronius farm have died mysteriously over the last four months, and veterinary examinations provide no clue to what happened.
“We’re going nuts down here trying to figure out what’s going on,” farm owner Peter Head said. “This is going to put me out of business.”
Beginning in October, the buffalo have been dying off sporadically — as many as six on some days. Of the original 110 animals, 55 have died, including 17 of 23 calves and many of the older animals, Head said.
“They just stand around like they have stomach cramps,” Head said of the sick buffalo. “Like something’s bothering them on the inside.” Read more..
Note: 4 Months? and they still cant find what is causing this.
