    The Virginian-Pilot ^ | 17 Oct 2010 | Jeff Hampton
    Sam Sumner retired as a schoolteacher, left his Hawaii home and recently moved to North Carolina, all for the purpose of solving the mystery of the Lost Colony. The answer lies not in Buxton where experts and amateur sleuths have searched for decades, he says, but at Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge in Currituck County, a site that leaves experts skeptical. A 1923 map in the lobby of Mackay Island ranger station shows an image on the ground next to the Currituck Sound that looks just like an old drawing of Fort Raleigh. "I looked at that map and I...
  • The Buffett Mystery (The billionaire can't decide whether to be or not to be a Keynesian)

    American Thinker ^ | 09/27/2010 | Peter Raymond
    A supporter of Obama's economic plan and a Keynesian disciple, Warren Buffett seems unable to decide if we are still in a recession. On September 13, Bloomberg reported that Buffett announced he was "a huge bull in this market." He seemed self-assured that the economy was in no longer contracting and that "we will not have a double-dip recession at all. I see our businesses coming back almost across the board." Buffett blamed the negative perception of the economy mostly on the media, which did not reflect his view of the business environment. The current economic doldrums apparently are a...
  • After Mozart’s Death, an Endless Coda

    New York Times ^ | August 24, 2010 | Daniel Wakin
    Direct medical evidence? None. Autopsy? Not performed. Medical records? Nowhere to be found. Corpse? Disappeared. Yet according to a recent article in an academic journal, researchers have posited at least 118 causes of death for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A modest industry of medical speculation has grown up around the subject, evidence of our fascination with what cut down great creative artists in history. In Mozart’s case published speculation began within a month of his death in 1791, and musicologists, physicians and medical scholars have regularly joined the fray ever since. Dr. William J. Dawson, a retired orthopedic surgeon...bibliographer for the...

    Online: Malvern, PA -- Young and strapping, the 57 Irish immigrants began grueling work in the summer of 1832 on the Philadelphia and Columbia railroad. Within weeks, all were dead of cholera. Or were they murdered? Two skulls unearthed at a probable mass grave near Philadelphia this month showed signs of violence, including a possible bullet hole. Another pair of skulls found earlier at the woodsy site also displayed traumas, seeming to confirm the suspicions of two historians leading the archaeological dig. "This was much more than a cholera epidemic," William Watson said. Watson, chairman of the history department...
  • "The Spacecraft Flyby Mystery" - Is Dark Matter the Culprit or is There a New Physics ...

    Daily Galaxy ^ | 8/3/10 | Casey Kazan
    When scientists send their spacecraft across the universe, they save fuel by performing “slingshot fly-bys”. This is where, rather than firing up the thrusters, the craft changes its trajectory by harnessing the enormous gravitational pull of a planet. However, this trick has had an unexpected side-effect: it seems to produce a change in speed that no one, since it was first discovered in the early 1990's, can account for. Experts are intrigued by the fact that while the acceleration is tiny and has no significant effect on NASA missions, it holds great interest because no explanation based on conventional physics...

    Today marks the 17th anniversary of Clinton White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster's death. Although ruled a "suicide" by official Washington since 1995, all credible forensic evidence in the case - circumstantial, physical, and laboratory - points to a homicide and a multi-pronged cover-up to shield the homicide's perpetrators from objective criminal investigation, indictment, and prosecution. As Newt Gingrich once noted to a reporter, you wold have to be brain dead to believe the official story. The general conclusion one can draw from the historical facts at hand is that in the United States legal system today - contrary to...

  • Mystery trader buys all Europe's cocoa

    The Telegraph ^ | 7/17/2010 | Jonathan Sibun and Harry Wallop
    Even Willy Wonka might struggle to use this much chocolate. Yesterday, somebody bought 241,000 tonnes of cocoa beans. The purchase was enough to move the entire global cocoa market, sending the price to the highest level since 1977, and triggering rumours and intrigue in the City. It is unclear which person, or group of traders, was behind the deal, but it was the largest single cocoa trade for 14 years. The cocoa beans, which are sitting in warehouses either in The Netherlands, Hamburg, or closer to home in London, Liverpool or Humberside is equivalent to the entire supply of the...

    Just watched the sneak preview of AMC's upcoming series m hosted by Hulu. It's called 'Rubicon', and will premier on AMC on August 9th I believe. The Sneak Preview, is just shy of an hour long, and IMO, if it is indicative of the rest of the series, then AMC's got a winner on it's hands. Link to the Premier episode on Hulu:

    His name is William Craig Fugate. This may be a photo of him. Mr. Fugate is believed to be the Director of the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under Barack Obama and Janet Napolitano. Therefore, he might be seen, either in the vicinity of Washington, D.C. or perhaps, the Gulf of Mexico. Please report to Investigating Obama, if you have any word of his whereabouts or his doings, because there appears to be an emergency in the Gulf, that he should know about.

    A vast hole in space has been unexpectedly discovered in a part of the universe thought to be packed with a cloud of dense gas and dust – the latest in a string of cosmic finds by the European Herschel infrared space telescope. The surprising hole in space has provided astronomers with a new glimpse at the end of the star-forming process. ... Stars are born in dense clouds of dust and gas, and while jets of gas have been spotted coming from young stars, the process of how a star uses this gas to disperse surrounding debris and emerge...
  • CNN's Toobin Says He Was In Kagan's Study Group at Law School, But Her Views are a 'Mystery' to Him?

    newsbusters ^ | 5/11/10 | Tim Graham
    At The New Yorker website (his other gig), CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin explained that he is a longtime friend of Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and went to law school with her, even studied with her in a small group -- and yet, her political views are somehow a "mystery" to him. Not even liberals are buying this (take Matthew Yglesias at Think Progress). Toobin stated: The justices are not really managers of people, certainly not in comparison to the dean of a major law school. Judgment, values, and politics are what matters on the Court. And here I...

    National Review ^ | 04/26/2010 | Michael Fumento
    Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) is back in the news, thanks to a new study released by the Institute of Medicine (IOM), and so is the persistent effort to label it a “mystery.” See, for example, the story by a HealthDay reporter headlined “Gulf War Syndrome Is Real, but Causes Unclear: Report.” Says the article, “its causes, treatment, and potential cure remain unknown.” A definite mystery, right? Well, no. There are two “causes” of GWS — the second of which is actually quite interesting, but not mysterious. The first explanation is a normal background rate of disease. That is, among the...

    After nearly five decades, guys like James Noce finally get to tell their stories about Area 51. Yes, that Area 51. The one that gets brought up when people talk about secret Air Force projects, crashed UFOs, alien bodies and, of course, conspiracies. The secrets, some of them, have been declassified. Noce, 72, and his fellow Area 51 veterans around the country now are free to talk about doing contract work for the CIA in the 1960s and '70s at the arid, isolated Southern Nevada government testing site. Their stories shed some light on a site shrouded in mystery; classified...

    americanchronicle ^ | March 13, 2010 | Steve Hammons
    The mystery of the 1997 "Phoenix lights" incident seems to continue. TV shows, films, research articles and other explorations of the case still fascinate us – and still raise many questions. As the 13th anniversary of the strange incident approaches on Saturday, March 13, 2010, it does seem an appropriate time to take a new look at clues about this case. The theory that the Phoenix lights were a U.S. psychological operation of some kind gained new attention late last month when experienced researcher and writer Randall Fitzgerald published a thought-provoking article online titled "Were the 1997 Arizona Lights a...

    enate Democrats are holding a news conference Thursday on a jobs bill without an actual jobs bill, an apparent sign that the Massachusetts Senate vote that is bringing Scott Brown to Washington is still reverberating through the U.S. Capitol. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Thursday that he plans to introduce a bill as early as Thursday, and there will be some kind of first vote on Monday.
