According to Dangerous Laboratories, some antique glassware and ceramics are radioactive, due to the use of uranium as a coloring agent. The glass hen (pictured) is made of 'uranium glass' and fluoresces when exposed to a blacklight. The site cautions that while radioactive glassware and ceramics are safe to collect, they should never be used to eat or drink from. Listen to a WAV file of a Geiger counter as it detects radiation from a Fiestaware pitcher.

Astrologers in India are said to be mulling over the significance of the newly discovered planet that lies beyond Pluto. Tonight's guest, Mark Lerner has studied a "provisional ephemeris" for the new planet and notes that anyone born April 10-12 currently has this object conjuncting their Sun. "This planet is also wreaking havoc on America," and could be an "archetypal force" propelling us into an "economic oblivion," he writes in an article on his site.

Some believe Thomas Greanias' action-packed thriller Raising Atlantis is part of a DoD disinformation campaign to divert attention from a secret US government dig underway in Antarctica. Greanias adamantly denies any such connection between his book and the Pentagon. According to Greanias, several plot points from his story have been confirmed by the National Science Foundation, including the discovery of a mysterious "anomaly" in Antarctica, as well as the construction of a secret base by the American military. Read an excerpt from Raising Atlantis here.
In the first hour, entertainment producer and author Thomas Greanias discussed his book Raising Atlantis, which speculates that the ancient city of Atlantis lay buried beneath the frozen Antarctic landscape.According to Greanias, a "magnetic anomaly" has been discovered in East Antarctica at Lake Volstok. Greanias suggested the anomaly could be a man-made structure, perhaps the ruins of Atlantis or even a submerged flying saucer. He said authorities have placed a "green electric fence" around Lake Volstok out of supposed concern for the delicate environment of the lake, making further investigations of the anomaly difficult to conduct.
William Saunders and George Haas have sent us six comparison images as part of their presentation. Pictured is the Face on Mars and a Mayan mask.

First hour guest, Michael Carroll discussed his book Lab 257 about the secretive germ research being conducted at a government lab on Plum Island, New York. He noted that Lyme Disease, West Nile and a type of Avian flu all first appeared in the U.S. within miles of the lab, and he suspects that they may have been accidentally released from there. The facility is also a "soft target" for terrorists, and has had security problems with stolen laptops and vehicles, he added.The Plum Island Animal Disease Center, is an in-house research facility of the USDA, which according to their website, seeks to protect America from "foreign animal disease agents accidentally or deliberately introduced into the U.S." Since 2003, the safety of the facility has been managed by the Dept. of Homeland Security.

Scott Stevens sent us a video clip of an "energy vortex" (Win | Real) that he captured with his DV-Cam last March 28th. He writes: "It is proof positive that an invisible energy system can bend clouds in 90-degree angles, and on far larger spatial scales, be used to generate tornados and hurricanes although those processes are far more complex."
Colin Bennett has made a study of designs for 'flying saucers,' such as John Sherwoods Vertical Lift Flying Machine, pictured here.A number of patents have been taken out in the US since 1945 for these unusual aircraft prototypes, though few have ever been built.

Stephen Mehler has sent us several images to accompany his presentation tonight. Pictured left is the Bent Pyramid at Dahshur.
During the first hour, reporter and editor for Earthfiles.com, Linda Moulton Howe, gave an update on the Deep Impact spectra results presented at the 9th International Asteroids, Comets and Meteors Conference in Brazil.Linda said data from the Deep Impactor collision showed that 50% of Comet Tempel I is water ice. The Deep Impact spectra also showed every major rock forming element (except for iron), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), as well as hydrogen cyanide and methyl cyanide, which Linda explained are precursors of the amino part of amino acids. Such findings could mean comets played a vital role in seeding life on Earth, Linda speculated. Read more at Earthfiles.com.Linda also discussed how warming Pacific coast waters are contributing to thousands of bird deaths. According to Linda, temperatures off the coast of Oregon are 8 to 11 degrees F warmer than usual, which has caused a decline in phytoplankton. Many species dependent on this food web have died off
David Oman, co-writer of the upcoming film House at the End of the Drive, has sent us several photos of paranormal investigations conducted at his home.

Based on 'Andromedan Technology,' Fred Bell claims his Projector amulet allows "the body to live in the physical environment for extended periods of time without any visible evidence of physical aging." Bell has also created a larger Stand Alone Projector.
In the latest issue of Fortean Times, Lionel & Patricia Fanthorpe write about how certain eastern counties in the U.K. seem to have more than their share of paranormal activity. For instance, in Suffolk, "Green Children" have appeared in a field, a "Merman" stayed with villagers and phantom organ music was heard coming from a church. In Norfolk, there is said to be a "time-slip" where people seemingly find themselves transported back to Roman times.
Philip J. Klass, well known UFO debunker, has passed away at his home in Maryland after a long illness. Born in 1919, he was a senior editor at Aviation Week and Space Technology for 35 years.

Tim Ventura of American Antigravity has just completed a new video clip (Win. Media) of the Ram-Implosion Wing, an attachment for vehicles developed by Robert Patterson.

Nancy Lieder has labeled the graphic she sent us: Torque Effect, Predicted by the Zetas. She writes that the Zetas made this prediction in May 2004 and it "became stunningly obvious after the Dec. 26 tsunami quake." She believes this torque will directly affect people living in North America, "as it is pulling the New Madrid into a diagonal pull, causing Florida to sink, and the West Coast to slide."

In the second half-hour, cryptozoologist Scott Marlowe talked about the Florida Swamp Ape, which he claims has been reported in the Sunshine State for hundreds of years.According to Marlowe, the Florida Swamp Ape is not a Bigfoot. He described the Swamp Ape as strong and muscular, standing seven feet tall (for males, females are shorter), and possessing reasonably high intelligence, as displayed in their tendency to migrate after game and based on weather. Marlowe even speculated that the creature could be taught to communicate with humans.Marlowe believes there are literally tribes of Swamp Apes roaming the Florida peninsula, and hopes to find one during an academic expedition this Summer. For more information on Marlowe's online cryptozoology class, as well as future expeditions, visit Florida Keys Community College.
