Warehouse Lighting

Large, indoor areas need proper lighting and that can be hard to find in regular department stores. Warehouse Lighting can be ordered online, though. You can get all sorts of styles, as well as optional features such as dimmers, sensors, lighting controls, and other accessories. Of course, if you already have the lighting you need, you will still need replacement bulbs and maintenance. You can find everything you need at the link above.

UFO Over Washington, D.C. July 12 to 29, 1952


On September 12th, 1952, UFO buzzed the Capitol in Washington, D.C. The fleet of UFO flew over the Capitol in distinct flight formation until September 29th, 1952. Jets were scrambled to intercept, but were outrun by the craft, which remain UFO to this day. It is sometimes referred to as "The Washington Incident."

Zetetic Scholar

Anomalistics and Zetetics - Marcello Tuzzi
Anomalistics and Zetetics - Marcello Tuzzi
Marcello Truzzi and Ron Westrum co-founded the Center for Scientific Anomalies Research (CSAR) two years after Truzzi was forced-out of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) in 1976. Following Truzzi's departure, CSICOP changed its journal's name to the Skeptical Inquirer.

Zetetic Scholar was the journal for open-minded, but cautiously skeptical, proponents of the paranormal -- in response to what Truzzi felt were attempts by organizations like CSICOP to debunk such claims despite the findings of research and investigations.

Several issues of Zetetic Scholar are available for download and reading online. The last issue appeared in 1987, and Truzzi died in 2003. CSAR mostly existed as a concept and not a practicing organization. Marcello Truzzi's "zeteticism" translates to "pseudoskepticism."

Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained (SITU)

SITU
SITU
Founded by Ivan T. Sanderson, the man who coined the term "cryptozoology," the Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained was established as a non-profit organization in 1965. Its purpose was "...the acquisition, investigation and dissemination of information on reports of all tangible items in the fields of chemistry, astronomy, geology, biology and anthropology, that are not readily explained."

The Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained published its findings on investigations into the anomalous in its unscheduled quarterly, Pursuit Journal (of the Society of the Unexplained). Their research board included at least a dozen, noted scientists of various fields. The Pursuit Journal only lasted a few years. Sanderson died in 1973, and the organization originally disbanded in the 1980s. A Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained apparently exists in Baltimore, but its statement of purpose is quite different, and may not be connected to Sanderson's.

Ivan Sanderson published numerous books and articles under two different names regarding a diverse number of subjects, and was considered skeptical of the paranormal. One researcher posted that a cache of SITU materials had been discovered, but little information has since come to light. Ivan Sanderson coined the term "cryptozoology."

Presonus Studio One

In my day a four or eight -track recorder was all you needed for a home studio. The quality was poor, but you could remaster or even rerecord in a real studio once you had the basic tracks down. These days, you really do not even need to go to a professional studio. With programs like presonus studio one free and a good computer, you can pretty much do it all on your own.

Have You Heard of Nikola Tesla?

Many of Nikola Tesla's inventions and discoveries are still in use today, such as the Tesla Coil. Although he started his career working with Thomas Edison, the two became rivals after a short time. Due to poor business sense, and a series of mysterious circumstances, Tesla's many scientific contributions remain largely uncredited in the United States.

Naga Fireballs

Naga Fireballs

Each October, fireballs appear to emerge from the Mekong River in Nong Khai, Thailand. Also known as the Mekong Lights, or "bung fai paya nak," legend has it that the Naga Fireballs are spat by a river monster from Buddhist lore. Some "explanations" include swamp gas and tracer rounds fired by soldiers on opposing banks, but swamp gas (methane) can apparently be ruled-out.

While soldiers do fire tracer rounds and fireworks (apparently for tourism, as the Mekong Lights are sparse some years), many films and photos appear to show the Naga Fireballs emerging from the water. One study by a Thai science institution claimed the Mekong Lights are actually isoprene.
