Three giant alien spaceships are again heading for Earth! Scientists predict the new ships will arrive in November of 2012.

UFO encounters continue to increase – as documented on WWN. And today scientists at SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), an independent non-commercial organization, made a major announcement:

“Three giant spaceships are heading toward Earth. The largest one of them is 200 miles wide. Two others are slightly smaller. At present, the objects are just moving past Jupiter. Judging by their speed, they should be on Earth by the fall of 2012,” said John Malley, the lead extraterrestrial expert at SETI.

Three similar giant ships landed in China and the Indonesia Sea in November, 2011. They were identified as alien spaceships from Planet Gootan. Three more giant Gootan ships are headed her for November, 2012.

The new Gootan spaceships have been detected by HAARP search system. The system, based in Alaska, was designed to study the phenomenon of northern lights. According to SETI researchers, the objects are extraterrestrial spaceships. They will be visible in optical telescopes as soon as they reach Mars’s orbit – sometime in November of 2012. The US government has been reportedly informed about the event.

SETI researchers have spent fifty years monitoring space. Dr. Malley said that they have conclusively proven that “we are just newcomers in this huge and unexplored world. Many believe that there are many other civilizations in space besides our own civilization.”

Wikileaks recently released many classified documents that prove that NASA and high-level U.S. official are aware of the three spaceships and are making plans to battle the spaceships. They have been concealing information from the U.S. public for decades. Wikileaks also confirms that the UFO sightings over the last three months prove that the alien invasions (long predicted by SETI) has begun. The three spaceships will mark the official beginning of the alien invasion.

Malley said that a Chinese official, Mao Kan, had obtained over than 1,000 secret NASA photographs depicting not only human footprints, but even a human carcass on the surface of the Moon. Some of the bones in the carcass were missing, the official said. The human corpse must have been dropped on the Moon from an alien spaceship, whereas the extraterrestrials kept some tissue samples for research.

Dr. Ken Johnston, former Manager of the Data and Photo Control Department at NASA’s Lunar Receiving Laboratory, said that US astronauts had found and photographed ancient ruins of artificial origin on the Moon. US astronauts had seen large unknown mechanisms on the Moon.

Both Johnston and Mao Kan agree that three more Gootan spaceships are heading for Earth.

Beginning in August of 2012 the U.N. will begin preparing citizens of the world for the second attack of the three Gootan spaceships and a subsequent alien attack, which they predict will be “a large-scale assault.”

McLaren happy to let drivers fight!

McLaren has vowed not to interfere with any on-track battles between Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button - even though the pair look set to fight it out for another victory in Malaysia.

For the second race in succession, the British pair has taken the first two positions on the grid, and another strong result at Sepang would put McLaren in a strong position for championship glory.

But although there are always dangers of team-mates taking points off each other, or even colliding, McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh says he is happy to let Hamilton and Button deal with matters themselves.

"It's quite difficult to call off the fight between drivers," he explained. "We haven't done it traditionally. They both very strongly want to win this race, and they know it's a free race.

"On the pit wall over the last few years there have been a few moments when I've been getting lots of advice on what they should be doing. But generally we've allowed them to race and that's what people expect of us and what our drivers expect of the team."

Whitmarsh has also urged caution about the strong situation McLaren is in this year, and well aware that nothing is yet won in Malaysia.

"It's been an encouraging start, but we're only one race down. So let's not get ahead of ourselves.

"We've won one race and currently have not scored any points in Malaysia this year and we have 56 hard, hot, sticky laps ahead of us with all the challenge and the weather thrown in. We'd like to have a dry race, but this is Malaysia and things happen with the weather."

Why humans began walking upright!

An international team of researchers have discovered that human bipedalism, or walking upright, may have originated millions of years ago as an adaptation to carrying scarce, high-quality resources.

The team of researchers from the US, England, Japan and Portugal investigated the behaviour of modern-day chimpanzees as they competed for food resources, in an effort to understand what ecological settings would lead a large ape - one that resembles the 6 million-year old ancestor we shared in common with living chimpanzees - to walk on two legs.

“These chimpanzees provide a model of the ecological conditions under which our earliest ancestors might have begun walking on two legs,” said Dr Brian Richmond, an author of the study and associate professor of anthropology at the George Washington University’s Columbian College of Arts and Sciences.

“Something as simple as carrying—an activity we engage in every day—may have, under the right conditions, led to upright walking and set our ancestors on a path apart from other apes that ultimately led to the origin of our kind,” he explained.

The research findings suggest that chimpanzees switch to moving on two limbs instead of four in situations where they need to monopolize a resource, usually because it may not occur in plentiful supply in their habitat, making it hard for them to predict when they will see it again.

Standing on two legs allows them to carry much more at one time because it frees up their hands. Over time, intense bursts of bipedal activity may have led to anatomical changes that in turn became the subject of natural selection where competition for food or other resources was strong.

The team conducted two studies in Guinea. The first study was in Kyoto University’s “outdoor laboratory” in a natural clearing in Bossou Forest. Researchers allowed the wild chimpanzees access to different combinations of two different types of nut—the oil palm nut, which is naturally widely available, and the coula nut, which is not.

The chimpanzees’ behaviour was monitored in three situations: (a) when only oil palm nuts were available, (b) when a small number of coula nuts was available, and (c) when coula nuts were the majority available resource.

When the rare coula nuts were available only in small numbers, the chimpanzees transported more at one time. Similarly, when coula nuts were the majority resource, the chimpanzees ignored the oil palm nuts altogether. The chimpanzees regarded the coula nuts as a more highly prized resource and competed for them more intensely.

In such high-competition settings, the frequency of cases in which the chimpanzees started moving on two legs increased by a factor of four. Not only was it obvious that bipedal movement allowed them to carry more of this precious resource, but also that they were actively trying to move as much as they could in one go by using everything available—even their mouths.

The second study, by Kimberley Hockings of Oxford Brookes University was a 14-month study of Bossou chimpanzees crop-raiding, a situation in which they have to compete for rare and unpredictable resources. Here, 35% of the chimpanzees’ activity involved some sort of bipedal movement, and once again, this behaviour appeared to be linked to a clear attempt to carry as much as possible at one time.

The key to a perfect night's sleep!

The key to a perfect night's sleep is going to bed at exactly 10pm, wearing pyjamas and enjoying a cup of tea beforehand, according to a poll.

A study of 2,000 adults who claim to enjoy an undisturbed sleep every single night of the week has highlighted how to achieve a decent slumber.

It shows the events of the evening have an impact on the night ahead - with most people ensuring they have at least two hours and seven minutes 'down time' before hitting the sack.

The average person will watch at least an hour and three quarters of television, opting for soap operas or comedy quiz shows.

And when going to bed, Brits have another 20 minutes rest time before finally falling asleep at 10:26pm.

Tania Johnston, spokewoman for bedlinen brand Bedeck, said: ''The survey draws attention to a common pattern of events leading up to bedtime, and the things most people who get a good night's sleep do whilst in bed.

''And the actual time people are going to bed is important, with most people ensuring they get a healthy eight or nine hours a night.''

The poll shows that while most people spend 41 minutes after getting home from work checking emails, they then down tools for the rest of the evening.

And although much of the evening is spent watching television, the average person will also surf the net for 51 minutes, and spend 41 minutes chatting with a partner or on the phone to their mum or friends.

Those who have mastered the art of getting a good sleep will finish their evening meal an hour and 31 minutes before going to bed, and have their final drink - a cup of tea - at 9:10pm.

When getting under the covers, more than a third of those polled opt for pyjamas or a nightdress - while 27 per cent are more comfortable in just their underwear.

And as 10:26pm approaches the average happy sleeper will turn onto their right side, get their partner to cuddle into them, and ensure they are sleeping on the right side of the bed when facing the ceiling.

The following morning, after a perfect night's sleep, people wake at a respectable 6:47am to the sound of their alarm clock.

And a third of those polled will literally bounce out of bed every morning of the week.

Tania Johnston added: ''It would be great to know that if you followed a certain string of events, and approached bedtime in the same way every night, you would be guaranteed a wonderful night's sleep.

''Obviously other factors will be relevant to getting the wonderful night's sleep - such as having a stressful day, being worried about something or having a partner that snores loudly every night.

''But for those people with relatively stress-free lives, sometimes all that is needed for a good rest is a chilled out evening and a bit of routine.''

Blue whales can hear sounds in wider range!

Blue whales can be affected even by sounds that are outside their vocalisation range, according to a new study.

Mariana Melcon and colleagues from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography observed the response of blue whales in the Southern California Bight to mid-frequency sounds created by military sonar, which occur between 1000Hz to 8000Hz, much higher than blue whale calls, which are 100Hz and lower.

They collected thousands of hours of recordings over two summers, and found that, when mid-frequency active (MFA) sonar (which is used to find submarines) was active in the region, blue whales' low-frequency vocalizations, known as "D-calls", dropped by almost half: a sign, the authors posit, that despite being well outside the whales' vocalization range, such relatively high-frequency sounds are within their hearing range.

One possible explanation for being able to hear sounds of such high frequency, Melcon and colleagues suggest, "is that it may be advantageous, for instance, to hear their predators, ie. killer whales, which vocalize in the same frequency range as MFA sonar," Discovery News reported.

Conversely, when confronted with the noise of shipping, which does largely fall within their vocalization range, the whales increased their D-calls - which "may be the vocal response of the animals to overcome the noise".
