Nine Ancient Maps that SHOULD NOT exist in Western Eyes*

Nine Ancient Maps that SHOULD NOT exist in Western Eyes*

Among numerous findings throughout the years, researchers around the globe have stumbled upon certain discoveries that should have never been made. Some of these discoveries directly contradict the beliefs and ‘tales’ set forth by mainstream scholars about mankind, its origins and ancient civilizations that inhabited our planet in the distant past.

It has become a popular belief that ancient civilizations across the globe were in fact much more advanced than what mainstream researchers are crediting them for. Numerous maps discovered in the past are clear indications that the story told today by scholars is incomplete, and there are numerous missing links in our history. These ‘missing links’ are being put together by these incredible ancient maps that prove mankind inhabited our planet much longer than what mainstream scholars believe.

However, the existence of these incredible maps proves that in the distant past, ancient explorers had an extremely well-developed cartography system comparable in precision with the one we have today. The maps are also evidence that ancient mankind knew the exact shape and size of the Earth, contrary to popular beliefs, and used spherical trigonometry, and precise and elaborate mathematical calculations, as if thousands of years ago, an unknown civilization undertook a global-scale project of mapping the entire planet like no one has ever done before.

One of the most intriguing maps is the Zeno Map. Published around 1380, the enigmatic maps accurately depicts the coasts of modern-day countries such as Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, and Scotland. Mysteriously, this ancient map also depicts the EXACT latitude and longitude of a number of islands on our planet. This is a huge enigma since the device necessary to measure the longitude, the chronometer, was not invented until 1765. If this isn’t mysterious enough, the Zeno map also depicts Greenland free of glaciers, meaning that somehow, someone charted it prior to the Ice Age.

The Camerio map. Created in 1502, this map does not depict unusual features as other maps do but it has one very strange detail. The Camerio map uses a spherical grid, even though people in the Middle Ages still believed our planet was in fact… flat.

Another mind boggling map is without a doubt the Iehudi Ibn ben Zara map. Created in 1487, the map displays remnants of glaciers in Britain, but also extremely detailed depictions of islands in the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. Today, these islands still exist, but due to rising water levels, these are now underwater.

The Hadji Ahmed map, published in 1559, shows incredibly accurate delineations of the western coast of Northern America and Antarctica. What is even more incredible is the fact that this ancient map shows a land bridge connection Siberia and Alaska, indicating it originated from a time when the bridge was still present.

Published in 1737 by Philippe Buache, the Buache map is believed to have been created with the use of much more ancient maps. This chart displays Antarctica well before the ‘icy’ continent was in fact discovered. Interestingly, like many other ancient maps, this too accurately depicts Antarctica with no ice. The Bouche Map also accurately positioned the Canary Island. The map issued in 1737 also displays the correct outline of the underwater plateau on which the islands are located. This means that the source of the map used to create it is based on a survey of the shape before glaciers melted and ocean levels rose. Even more interesting is the fact that the Buache Map depicts the waterway which divides the continent of Antarctica into two landmasses.

Created in 1502, the Harry King Chart displays northern Siberian rivers emptying into the Arctic ocean which is now under ice. Interestingly, it also depicts glacial remains in the Baltic countries and accurately depicts the ancient Suez Canal. This incredible map also depicts what today are huge islands in Southeastern parts of Asia, but joined together by land, indicating that geologically speaking, the maps were created when the Earth looked much differently.

The Map of the North by Ptolemy depicts glacial sheets moving across south-central Greenland. It also depicts glaciers retreating from modern-day Germany (north) and parts of southern Sweden. Another map indicating a different time on Earth.

Another interesting map is the King Jaime World Chart. It was created in 1502, and accurately depicts parts of the Sahara Desert displaying it much differently than it is today: with fertile land, huge lakes rivers and what appear to be ancient cities. In fact, Sahara was, in the distant past, a fertile land filled with animal life and forests.

The Oronce Finé World Map created in 1534, is an early cordiform chart which displays features of Antarctica when the continent was not covered by Ice. While it is yet another map which shows the continent before it was officially ‘found’, the chart also shows continent rivers, valleys, and coastlines while also depicting the approximate location of what is the South Pole today.

Rothschild Demands Western Nations Invade Syria*

Rothschild Demands Western Nations Invade Syria*

By Baxter Dmitry

Sir Evelyn de Rothschild has urged western nations to “unite as one” in order to “intervene” in Syria and overthrow Assad to “usher Syrians into the new century.”

Describing Assad as “a brutal dictator who must be bought to heel” during a grim speech at a fundraiser in the City of London financial district, Rothschild demanded that western nations “topple the Assad regime” because it is “resistant to common decency” and a threat to our “corporate values.“

Rothschild also referred to his family businesses which originated with five brothers setting up the “first and only truly global banking system,” operating from London, Paris, Vienna, Naples and Frankfurt just before the turn of the 19th century.

He said: “These five brothers, working together to exchange information and ideas, built an extraordinary business that superseded boundaries and cultures.

Just over 200 years later, these business ideals, which have stood the test of time, are now under threat by despotic regimes that are resistant to common decency. These regimes pose a threat to our international corporate values.

Sir Evelyn, a billionaire financier who is married to Lynn Forester de Rothschild, did not explain why world governments should listen to his demands for interventionist wars in the Middle-East.

However it has been suggested he is advocating for the invasion of Syria because the nation remains one of only five nations left in the world that does not have a Rothschild controlled central bank.

In the year 2000 there were eight countries without a Rothschild controlled central bank, however Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan – immediately after western invasion – now all have established central banks.

Will Syria be next?

Police Hold Children at Gunpoint in Muslim House Raid*

Police Hold Children at Gunpoint in Muslim House Raid*

Shocking footage has emerged showing police raiding a house in Birmingham and pointing machine guns at handcuffed children as young as 15.

The mobile phone footage shows armed officers storming the property on Pretoria Road before leading the youngsters out and forcing them to lie face down on the floor.

One of the children can be seen barefoot while some were still in their pyjamas when they were forced out of the house, according to one witness.

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said the raid was carried out following reports of an armed man in the area.

The children’s 37-year-old mother said she had “no idea” what was happening.

“I left the house just before 12 yesterday afternoon to go and pay some bills down the road, and left my children in the house as they’re on holidays.

“When I was coming back I saw a police van just over the bridge, at the end of my road,” she said, the Daily Mail reports.

She said police approached her and asked her where she lived and what was in her house.

“But then they started to grab me by the wrist and try and drag me towards the van, which was when I realized that it was serious.

“They wanted to search me, but that’s against my faith.

“I’m a practicing Muslim, and I wasn’t willing to be touched and searched by a male police officer, so we had to wait for a female officer to come and do it.”

The mother-of-four said police gave no explanation or apology after her house was “ransacked” and that she feels “very mistreated.”

“It’s disgraceful … what happened to my children was shameful. They were treated like animals,” she added.

“It could have something to do with my religion. I do experience discrimination, rude comments when I’m walking down the street and that sort of thing.

“I was wearing my hijab and a long black dress when it happened, so I think that might have had something to do with it – I wouldn’t be surprised.

A West Midlands Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called to reports of a man believed to be carrying firearms in Pretoria Road, Bordesley Green, at around 10:50am.

“Officers and the police helicopter attended the scene but despite a thorough search no firearms were recovered and no arrests were made,” she said, according to the Birmingham Mail.

“[It] appears that a call was made with good intent.”

United Airlines Stocks Plummet by over $800mn after Passenger Thrown off Plane*

The stock price of United Continental Holdings Inc. fell dramatically on Tuesday as the fallout continues over the airline’s handling of a passenger being dragged from one of its U.S. flights.

If the airline’s stock ends the day carrying these losses, the company will lose about $830 million from its market value, MarketWatch reports.

The company’s stock price opened at $70.15 Tuesday as the markets were largely unmoved by the scandal on Monday. However, it later plummeted to $68.37, a fall of more than 4%.

The market drop follows an incident in which a United passenger was forcibly ejected from an overbooked flight from Chicago to Kentucky.

Footage shot by other passengers showed the man screaming and struggling as airport police removed him from his seat and pulled him down the aisle of the aircraft. Later videos showed him back on board the aircraft with a bloodied face and appearing disoriented.

In a letter to employees United Chief Executive Officer Oscar Munoz said that the passenger had “defied” security officers, Reuters reported.

“We sought volunteers and then followed our involuntary denial of boarding process (including offering up to $1,000 in compensation),” Munoz wrote.

“When we approached one of these passengers to explain apologetically that he was being denied boarding, he raised his voice and refused to comply with crew member instructions.”

The Link between Patience, Willpower and Imagination*

The Link between Patience, Willpower and Imagination*

By April McCarthy

How often do you act impulsively without considering the consequences? What if you could learn how to be more patient?
By using functional MRI (fMRI) to look inside the brain, neuroscientists Adrianna Jenkins, a UC Berkeley postdoctoral researcher, and Ming Hsu, an associate professor of marketing and neuroscience at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, found that imagination is a pathway toward patience. Imagining an outcome before acting upon an impulse may help increase patience without relying on increased willpower.

Scientists call this technique, “framing effects,” or making small changes to how options are presented or framed. And the method may increase a person’s ability to exercise patience.

The findings can be found in Jenkins and Hsu’s study, “Dissociable contributions of imagination and willpower to the malleability of human patience,” forthcoming in Psychological Science.

The authors’ approach stands in contrast to previous research, which has mostly focused on the exertion of willpower to positively affect a person’s patience.

“Whereas willpower might enable people to override impulses, imagining the consequences of their choices might change the impulses,” Jenkins says.

“People tend to pay attention to what is in their immediate vicinity, but there are benefits to imagining the possible consequences of their choices.”

Hsu and Jenkins conducted two experiments to explore the role of imagination and willpower on patience. In the studies, participants made choices about when to receive different amounts of money depending on how the offer is framed. The actual reward outcomes were identical, but the way they were framed differed.

For example, under an “independent” frame, a participant could receive $100 tomorrow or $120 in 30 days. Under a “sequence” frame, a participant had to decide whether to receive $100 tomorrow and no money in 30 days or no money tomorrow and $120 in 30 days.

The first experiment replicated past research, which found that framing outcomes as sequences promotes patience. 122 participants saw both independent and sequence framed options and expressed stronger preferences for the larger, delayed reward when choices were framed as sequences.

The second experiment involved 203 participants who had to make a choice based on one frame: 104 people had to choose under an independent frame; the other 99 had to choose under a sequence frame.

The result: participants in the sequence frame reported imagining the consequences of their choices more than those in the independent frame. One participant wrote,

“It would be nice to have the $100 now, but $20 more at the end of the month is probably worth it because this is like one week’s gas money.”

In contrast, participants exposed to the independent frame demonstrated less imagination. One participant commented,

“I’d rather have the money tomorrow even if it’s a lesser amount. I can get the things I need instead of waiting. Why wait a month for just $20 more?”

By framing the options in the second experiment, the researchers found that the participants escalated their use of imagination. The more participants imagined the consequences of their choices, the more they were able to be patient in order to receive the greater reward.

In the fMRI portion of the experiments, Jenkins and Hsu measured participants’ brain activation while the participants made a series of choices in both frames. They found the areas of the brain that process imagination became more active when participants were more patient during sequence framing. In contrast, in the independent framing, the researchers found patience more strongly linked to brain regions associated with willpower.

“There is a long tendency of behavioral interventions, ranging from promoting healthy eating to reducing drug dependence, to appeal to willpower. For example, ‘commit to be fit’ or ‘don’t do drugs’,” Hsu says. “Our findings highlight the potential benefits of interventions that change the nature of the impulses themselves by encouraging people to imagine the consequences of their choices.”

The researchers acknowledge that using brain scans to study human cognition has its limitations because it relies on certain assumptions about the links between brain regions and their functions. This is why the experiments combined several methods, which all converge on a similar conclusion.

“We know people often have difficulty being patient,” Jenkins says.

“Our findings suggest that imagination is a possible route for attaining patience that may be more sustainable and practical than exerting willpower.”

Hackers can Steal PINs and Passwords by Tracking the Motion of your Phone*

Hackers can Steal PINs and Passwords by Tracking the Motion of your Phone*

 

 

Hackers are able to decipher PINs and passwords just from the way we tilt our phone when we are typing in the information.

Cyber experts at Newcastle University, UK, have revealed the ease with which malicious websites, as well as installed apps, can spy on us using just the information from the motion sensors in our mobile phones.

Analysing the movement of the device as we type in information, they have shown it is possible to crack four-digit PINs with a 70% accuracy on the first guess – 100% by the fifth guess – using just the data collected via the phone’s numerous internal sensors.

Despite the threat, the research shows that people are unaware of the risks and most of us have little idea what the majority of the twenty five different sensors available on current smart phones do.

And while all the major players in the industry are aware of the problem, no-one has yet been able to find a solution.

Publishing their findings today in the International Journal of Information Security, the team are now looking at the additional risks posed by personal fitness trackers which are linked up to our online profiles and can potentially be used to interpret the slightest wrist movements as well as general physical activities such as sitting, walking, running, and different forms of commute.

Dr Maryam Mehrnezhad, a Research Fellow in the School of Computing Science and lead author on the paper, explains:

“Most smart phones, tablets, and other wearables are now equipped with a multitude of sensors, from the well-known GPS, camera and microphone to instruments such as the gyroscope, proximity, NFC, and rotation sensors and accelerometer.

“But because mobile apps and websites don’t need to ask permission to access most of them, malicious programs can covertly ‘listen in’ on your sensor data and use it to discover a wide range of sensitive information about you such as phone call timing, physical activities and even your touch actions, PINs and passwords.

“More worrying, on some browsers, we found that if you open a page on your phone or tablet which hosts one of these malicious code and then open, for example, your online banking account without closing the previous tab, then they can spy on every personal detail you enter.

And worse still, in some cases, unless you close them down completely, they can even spy on you when your phone is locked.

“Despite the very real risks, when we asked people which sensors they were most concerned about we found a direct correlation between perceived risk and understanding. So people were far more concerned about the camera and GPS than they were about the silent sensors.”

Access without permission

Sensors are now commonplace in smart devices and are largely responsible for the boom in mobile gaming and health and fitness apps, and soon in all devices in the Internet of Things (IoT).

The data provided by them combined with the growing computational ability of mobile phones and tablets has transformed the way we use them.

In total, the team identified 25 different sensors which now come as standard on most smart devices and are used to give different information about the device and its user. Only a small number of these – such as the camera and GPS – ask the user’s permission to access the device.

The study found that each user touch action – clicking, scrolling, holding and tapping – induces a unique orientation and motion trace. So on a known webpage, the team were able to determine what part of the page the user was clicking on and what they were typing.

 

“It’s a bit like doing a jigsaw – the more pieces you put together the easier it is to see the picture,” explains Dr Siamak Shahandashti, a Senior Research Associate in the School of Computing Science and co-author on the study.

“Depending on how we type – whether you hold your phone in one hand and use your thumb, or perhaps hold with one hand and type with the other, whether you touch or swipe – the device will tilt in a certain way and it’s quite easy to start to recognise tilt patterns associated with ‘Touch Signatures’ that we use regularly.

“So the internal sensors each provide a different bit of the jigsaw. Personal fitness trackers which you wear on your wrist and, by their very nature, are designed to track the movement of your hand and pass information to your online profile pose a whole new threat.

“Potentially, they are able to provide additional information which, when combined with this sensor data, will make it even easier to decipher personal information.”

So are we able to protect ourselves?

The team has alerted all the major browser providers – including Google and Apple – of the risks but for the moment, says Dr Mehrnezhad, no-one has been able to come up with an answer.

“It’s a battle between usability and security,” she says.

“We all clamour for the latest phone with the latest features and better user experience but because there is no uniform way of managing sensors across the industry they pose a real threat to our personal security.

“One way would be to deny access to the browser altogether but we don’t want to lose all the benefits associated with in-built motion sensors.”

As the result of the research, some of the mobile browser vendors such as Mozilla, Firefox and Apple Safari have partially fixed the problem, but for an ultimate solution, the Newcastle team is still working with industry.

Dr Mehrnezhad, who together with her colleague and co-author Ehsan Toreini run the Cyber Security: Safety at Home, Online, In Life course, part of Newcastle University’s series of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), say there are some simple rules people should follow:

  • Make sure you change PINs and passwords regularly so malicious websites can’t start to recognise a pattern.
  • Close background apps when you are not using them and uninstall apps you no longer need
  • Keep your phone operating system and apps up to date
  • Only install applications from approved app stores
  • Audit the permissions that apps have on your phone
  • Scrutinise the permission requested by apps before you install them and choose alternatives with more sensible permissions if needed

30,000 Disappeared in Mexico, 855 Mass Graves Found in 9 Years*

Over 80% of the cases of disappearances are concentrated in 11 out of the 31 states in the country.

 

Relatives welcomed the report as an improvement on the usual work of the CNDH.

Between 2007 and September 2016, a total of 855 illegal mass graves were found across Mexico according to the official estimate, while a staggering 30,000 people were reported disappeared, according to a report by the National Commission of Human Rights.

“Despite this alarming estimate, Mexico has still not realized how serious the situation was of disappearances,” said CNDH state official Ismael Eslava, adding that over 80% of the cases were concentrated in 11 out of the 31 states in the country: Guerrero, Nuevo Leon, Veracruz, Zacatecas, Coahuila, Colima, San Luis Potosi, Durango, Jalisco and Sonora.

Most of them are related to confrontations between rival drug cartels, sometimes with the support of authorities, said the report, which based its conclusions on over 500 requests before state and federal courts to find their relatives.

Collectives of relatives have welcomed the report as an improvement on the usual work of the CNDH, often criticized for reluctantly investigating the cases of disappearances or human rights abuses, especially when they involve local or federal authorities.

The relatives of the victims complained that they have to carry out the search themselves for their loved ones, as the state fails to guarantee justice. However, running such investigations usually exposes them to death threats and other risks.
