Brilliant Noise from Semiconductor on Vimeo.
Brilliant Noise takes us into the data vaults of solar astronomy. After sifting through hundreds of thousands of computer files, made accessible via open access archives, Semiconductor have brought together some of the sun's finest unseen moments. These images have been kept in their most raw form, revealing the energetic particles and solar wind as a rain of white noise. This grainy black and white quality is routinely cleaned up by NASA, hiding the processes and mechanics in action behind the capturing procedure. Most of the imagery has been collected as single snapshots containing additional information, by satellites orbiting the Earth. They are then reorganised into their spectral groups to create time-lapse sequences. The soundtrack highlights the hidden forces at play upon the solar surface, by directly translating areas of intensity within the image brightness into layers of audio manipulation and radio frequencies.

A 40 year old, 5 ton she-elephant named Indra, like the Hindu goddess of the holographic pearl necklace, escaped the circus and crashed against a bus in a highway in Mexico.
The bus driver and the elephant both were killed by the accident; Tomás López Durán, the driver, managed to keep the wheels and get off the road into a swampy terrain and hit a contention wall, before finally passing way. Of the 40 plus passengers, only 2 are seriously wounded, 11 have minor injuries and thhe rest suffered no damages.
The accident, which occurred in Mexico-Tulancingo highway, happened after the elephant rebelled at her caretaker who was trying to feed her in the warehouses of Circo Union.
Apparently Indra broke a metallic door and rampaged into the night near the Teotihuacan Pyramids, straying into road and finding death in a curve.

"Depicts time as a wave coming out of the center of the universe, every second runs round the dial, a pulse of light showing time racing away
"An hour seating with a pretty girl passes like a minute, but a minute seating on a hot stove passes like an hour".

Krakatua volcano (Indonesia) captured by GeoEye
The camara of the Geo-Eye 1 is able to process up to 700 megapixels per second, a speed at which it would be able to photograph all of Spain in 1 day and a half. GeoEye-1 is designed to take digital images of the Earth from 423 miles (681 kilometers). Moving at a speed of about 4.5 miles (7 kilometers) per second, the satellite camera can distinguish objects on the Earth’s surface as small as 0.41-meter or 16 inches in size.
The satelite´s cost is 350 million euros.
Great blog of raw images around and about the National Conventions in Denver and St.Paul: protest galore, police bloopers and trepidations, celebrity criss-cross, concerts and fire, lights and faces with fucking great lenses.

Fico 20, told an Italian magazine: "I can't wait to see who's going to pull out the money to have me." (Fico expects to get 1 million euros for her sex primacy).
Miss Fico, who appeared in the Italian version of Big Brother earlier this year, said she would use the cash to buy a house in Rome and pay for acting classes.
"I don't know what it's like to have sex," she told the magazine, Chi, adding that if the man who bought her virginity was ugly then she would quickly get over it.
"If I don't like him I'll just have a glass of wine and forget about it," said the aspiring actress from Naples - hometown of screen siren Sophia Loren.
Her family insisted that despite her good looks and sexy image, she remained a virgin.
"She's never had a boyfriend. I swear on my mother's grave. She's a devout Catholic and prays to Padre Pio every night," her brother told the magazine.
She is the not the first woman to auction her virginity for a large sum. An 18-year-old US student in San Diego, Natalie Dylan, recently told the Howard Stern show she would have sex for the first time for $1 million to pay her college fees.In 2005 a Peruvian model, also 18, put herself up for sale to help pay her family's medical bills but ended up having second thoughts and turning down 1.5 million.
How mucho would yo pay to have sex with superstar virgin Adriana Lima? Perhaps more than Real Madrid for Christiano Ronaldo.

Is this a another hoax or part of the strain of viral marketing, ala Montauk Monster?. Well we will have to wait, but it will certainly be interesting to keep an a eye on October skies. Whether we find a fake hologram (government or advertisement ) spaceship, Pleiadian revelation or just the same blue mirror of ourselves in the sky.
Some Youtube comments:

imtheone06 (11 hours ago) Reply: ya know what, I heard that this whole thing is staged by the U.S. govt. and that it will be a hologram built by nasa to fake an alien visitation. Now I don't know if this is true or not, but this is just what I've heard. IF it really is an alien mothership, then that would be too incredible for words..
waterkeeper511 (3 hours ago) Reply I heard they want to stage an alien *invasion* whereas THESE aliens are the good ones.
xalexdomaumano (13 hours ago) I Wish i'm lying(don't know how to right)
but i don't think they'll make contact with us... and if the make it it would be amazing imagine what's the number of theyr's PS they must be at PS3000
saveamericaplease (14 hours ago) Reply: How do we not know that when they showup on Oct 14 2008, it is not bluebeam.The people on this world can see truth in our own hearts, if we just look for our selves.The earth will change as it always has and we will change.Don't follow others over a cliff,be a leader and look within.If your gut feeling tells you it's right,that is what I would investigate.Don't listen to my words or others,hear your inner voice.We can do this,just think and be positive and the world will change..
cdc51049 (14 hours ago) Reply: This is wonderful! They have been waiting a long time for the right time to make open, public contact. Their appearance will plunge us into a new reality that will challenge a lot people's belief systems - particularly those that are fear-based. Adjustment is a very organic process. Embrace this with your whole being and let it happen. Your body and mind may to do some wierd stuff while adjusting to the new reality. This is normal. Body work, energy work, meditation, breathing will help.

And contrary to popular fears (even a lawsuit was reared) the LHC will not trigger a world-destroying black hole or a strange sci-fi vortex that will devour the world. It is a fat chance, physics all over the world are confident it will not release a deathray.
But much more, physicists are excited the experiment will yield vital gogoplex´s of data that will help understand the basic fabric of our world, and possibly even find the Higgs boson, dubbed the "God particle", for its ghost-like qualities and its keystone position in the latticework of modern physics. The Higgs boson is the only unobserved elementary particle and could confirm the predictions and missing links in the Standard Model of physics and could explain how other elementary particles acquire properties such as mass. Additionally it is expected that the LHC might shed some light and help solve the inconsistencies between relativity theory and quantum mechanics and probe into the present mysteries of physics wich include dark matter, supersymmery and the existence of parallel universes folded in 10 dimensional space.
The Large Hadron Collider took 14 years to build with a cost more than 8 billion dollars. It is 27 kilometes long, built in a circular tunnel between 50 and 120 meters deep in the Swiss-French border.
More than 8 thousand scientists of 80 different countries are working on the project, which is being tagged as the culmen of scientific experimentation.

Bioluminescent dinoflagellates (Lingulodinium polyedrum) lighting a breaking wave at midnight. The blue light is a result of a luciferase enzyme (like firefly luciferase, but the enzyme in L. polyedrum shares no similarity with that of the firefly enzyme). Under the right conditions, the dinoflagellates become so numerous that the water takes on a muddy reddish color (hence the name "Red Tide").
