While interviewing German UFO researcher Michael Hesemann on our Dreamland Christmas show December 22, Whitley was looking through Michael?s extraordinary website and saw the June 2001 ?UFO Photo of the Month,? an image of a ?hat-shaped? craft taken in Iran in 1978.

Since he had interviewed U.K. researcher Matthew Hurley the week before, on December 15, about his remarkable discoveries of UFO images in art, from prehistoric times through the Renaissance, Whitley recognized the Iran image as being a close match to 3 images on Hurley?s site, one of them over 20,000 years old!

Scientists have discovered that a cellphone call lasting just two minutes can alter the natural electrical activity of a child?s brain for up to an hour afterwards. They have also found for the first time how radio waves from mobile phones penetrate deep into the brain and don?t just center around the ear.

The study by Spanish scientists has prompted leading medical experts to question whether it is safe for children to use mobile phones at all. Doctors fear that disturbed brain activity in children could lead to psychiatric and behavioral problems or impair learning ability. It should be noted that more children every year are diagnosed with attention deficit problems and given drugs like Ritalin to help calm them down enough to pay attention in school.

Skeptics have often claimed that ball lightning is responsible for UFO sightings, even though it is extremely rare. Now scientists say it may be linked to spontaneous human combustion.

Ball lightning occurs so rarely that few photographs of it exist and researchers have had to rely on eyewitness accounts, some of them from previous centuries. The term describes small natural fireballs which very occasionally follow ordinary lightning, floating across land or through buildings and aircraft.

Among the new findings are that ball lightning can be powerful enough to boil away water and burn flesh. They also suggest that water droplets, ?polymer threads? and ?metal nanoparticle chains? may form the actual lightning balls.
