Area 51 : The Most Secretive Place on Earth

In the year of 2013, the United States government finally admitted the existence of such place called Area 51. It has long been a topic of fascination for conspiracy theorists and paranormal enthusiasts. This place is said to be the place for top secret experiments of the US government including aliens and advance aircraft.

Located in Nevada, Area 51 is the site of a top-secret military installation a scant 100 miles from Las Vegas. The area surrounding Area 51 is permanently off-limits both to civilians and normal military air traffic. Radar stations protect the area and deadly force is authorized if violators  breached the secured area. Security guards patrol its perimeter in camouflage jeeps, and the only clue that something important actually exists in the area are the ‘restricted’ and ‘warning’ signs based around its perimeter.

According to the Air Force, Area 51’s purpose is to test technologies and systems used for necessary military operations. Although satellite pictures of Area 51 show a guard shack, hangar, housing facilities, offices, a mess hall, radar antennas, runways and shelters, the more conspiracy-minded among the citizenry wonders if a much larger underground facility of perhaps 40 levels is hidden beneath the rather tame-looking exterior.

Regardless what the official report states, there are many questions and theories still remain unanswered about the transparency of the government on revealing the truth of the purpose of the Area 51. Is the report is revealing the true purposes and all activities in Area 51? This came up due to the many suspicious incidents that happened related to Area 51.

One of the incident  is the famous Roswell UFO crash. The Roswell UFO incident took place in the U.S. in June or July 1947, when an airborne object crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. Explanations of what took place are based on both official and unofficial communications. Although the crash is attributed to a secret U.S. military Air Force surveillance balloon by the U.S. government, the most famous explanation of what occurred is that the object was a spacecraft with extraterestrial creature in it.

On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut, issued a press release they had recovered a “flying disk”, which had crashed on a ranch near Roswell. Later that day the RAAF changed their statement by issuing new press release and stated the crashed “flying disk” was actually a high altitude weather balloon that is still in experiment. After that, the incident was disappeared from public attention.

RAAF Press Release

30 years later, the Roswell incident became hot again. Many witnesses came out and tell their stories and documentaries were produced. Witnesses claim of a large-scale military operation dedicated to recovering alien craft and aliens themselves, at as many as 11 crash sites, and alleged witness intimidation. In 1989, former mortician Glenn Dennis put forth a detailed personal account, wherein he claimed alien autopsies were carried out at the Roswell base.
One of Area 51’s main reported duties is to develop new military aircraft. One such creation was OXCART, a top-secret spy plane that could fly three times faster than the speed of sound and required specially mixed jet fuel because regular fuel explodes at extreme height, temperature and speed.

In 1963, an Area 51 pilot was testing OXCART when it crashed in the Nevada desert – he was rescued by three civilians, the first people outside of Area 51 to lay eyes on the plane. The three rescuers were later tracked down by the CIA and made to sign national security disclosures.

Area 51 is divided into many sectors where every one of it has its own function. The most famous sector is the Sector 4 (S-4) which specifies in alien spacecraft engineering.

Bob Lazar who was one of the engineer worked in S-4 came out and told his story. According to Lazar, S-4 served as a hidden military location for the study of and reverse engineering extraterrestrial flying saucers. Lazar says he saw nine different discs there and provides details on their mode of propulsion. Lazar is located in S-4 to work with disk shaped spacecraft. He also described the space craft that he performed on as being powered through an anti-matter reactor using Element 115.

Bob Lazar stated that the Flying Disc amplified the Strong Nuclear Force of Element 115 (UnUnPentium or UUP) to generate the gravity field for Space-Time Compression. Bob also stated that the US Government had 500 pounds of Element 115 in their possession.

The raw Element 115 was given to the U.S. Goverment at S-4 by the Reticulan EBEs (Extraterrestrial Biological Entity) in the form of discs. The scientists at S4 sent the Element 115 discs through Groom Lake to Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, to be milled for use in the Anti-Matter Reactor.

The conspiracy theories surrounding Area 51 have made it a favourite subject for filmmakers, who portray the base as a haven for extraterrestrials.

In the 1996 film Independence Day, Will Smith is shown the scout ship from the Roswell incident, while in Tomb Raider 3, Lara Croft infiltrates Area 51 to find a secret stone called Element 115.

What is the real thing  happening inside Area 51 still remain a mystery. Do aliens or UFO exist? Let the time tells.

Truffle : The most expensive food in the world

Alamy-IE-intro-AK3909-Truffles-L-6-Nov-08.1trufflesP

Truffle is type of fungus that grows underground. It is round, warty, and irregular in shape and vary from the size of a walnut to that of a man’s fist. The season for most truffles falls between September and May.

They are among the most expensive of the world’s natural foods, often commanding as much as $250 to $450 per pound while the white truffle could be triple in price. It is the food for the elites and it is can be spread on any dish.Truffles are expensive because it is really hard to obtain and there are few ways to mine these fungi such as using the  female pigs or truffle dogs, which are able to detect the strong smell of mature truffles underneath the surface of the ground. The female pig becomes excited when she sniffs a chemical that is similar to the male swine sex attractant. The use of pigs is risky, though, because of their natural tendency to eat any remotely edible thing. For this reason, dogs have been trained to dig into the ground wherever they find these odors, and they willingly exchange their truffle for a piece of bread and a pat on the head.

Truffle mining with trained dog

A casino mogul, Stanley Ho bid $330,000 (£210,000) for a pair of white truffles, including one weighing nearly a kilogram.

Truffles price has been rising from year to year due to the reducing quantity of the fungi to be mined from underground. A harvest of 2,200 tons was reported in l890. Three hundred tons were harvested in l914, but lately only 25 to 150 tons per year have been found. Truffles appear to have predictable life cycles. To ensure future production, appropriate tree seedlings are inoculated with truffle spores, and when the sapling tree is established, it is transplanted to the proper environment, usually a barren, rock-strewn calcific soil. It takes about seven years before the first truffle begins to grow. A bearing tree will produce for about fifteen to thirty years. For the European market to survive it is necessary to regularly replenish the population of truffle-bearing trees. Inoculated trees have been brought to North America, but it is too early to predict how successful these experiments will be.

The high price of the truffles also lead to the emerging black market around the United States and Europe. They are being traffic like drugs and stolen by thugs. One of the famous black market is in Richerenches, France. This is the place where miners go and sell their truffles illegally and their income could be up to 100 thousands Euro for every sack of truffles they are selling which weigh around 50 lbs. Many of the small transactions happen in at the back of the car or van but for big cash it happens at the back alley.

What scare the people in truffle business in France is the Chinese truffle that is flooding France market today. The Chinese truffles look almost the same like French but the quality taste and smell is totally low and the price just as low as 2 Euro for each pound.  The Chinese truffles are described by the European chefs as catastrophic. Because of the low price oft he Chinese truffles, some  the miners will mix it up with the French truffles before selling it to the market with hope that they will gain more money. Every year there are more than 28 tonnes of Chinese truffles being mixed with French truffles. Experts say it is hard to differentiate the Chinese and French truffles because it is like finding cocaine in flour.

Today, the Chinese truffles are infecting the truffles in French and Italy due to the illegal import activities. If the Europe started to produce Chinese truffles in their land, it is going to be the end of their business.
