Earlier this week, Coast to Coast AM with George Noory had acall from somebody claiming to be “Dodie Crain,” the motherof controversial biologist Dan Burisch. Coast producersconfirmed that the call was probably authentic, but thatcannot be stated for certain.

Dan Burisch has made some of the most controversial claimsin UFO history, including that he has been face-to-face witha living alien in US government capitivity.

Many have found his claims unacceptably strange, and thebiological theories he has described in connection with hisexperience, are either somewhat beyond the leading edge ofcurrent science, or simply invented.

Researchers at the University of California at Los Angelesand the National Research Institute for Earth Science andDisaster Prevention in Japan have confirmed a link betweenstrong tides and earthquakes. Using satellite imagery andhistorical earthquake records, the researchers found thatlarge earthquakes along coastal faults were three times morelikely to occur during high tides.

The research team looked at all magnitude 5.5 or greaterearthquakes that occurred between 1977 and 2000 alongcoastlines featuring “thrust faults” — where one side ofthe fault is positioned below the other. 75 percent ofthese earthquakes happened when tidal forces were high.

Mission accomplished: a collection of rat brain cells hasflown a virtual F-22 fighter jet from a Petri dish.

Approximately 25,000 interconnected rat neurons were culledfrom the motor cortex of mature rat embryos and ?seeded? ina Petri dish. The neurons soon formed a complex web ofinterconnections, transforming the collection of cells intoa ?live computation device?, says Thomas DeMarse, aUniversity of Florida biomedical engineer who wasresponsible for the project.

The neurons were able to interpret signals from a virtualF-22 fighter jet, indicating the plane?s movement andweather conditions. The in vitro neurons then modified theflight path accordingly by transmitting signals back to theplane?s controls.
