Prof. David Mears, Bioresource Engineer, Rutgers University has created a 'green' house out of his Civil War era home in New Jersey. Using alternative energy sources, Mears' residence has maintained a temperature at or above 68 degrees F for the last 25 years without the use of his backup oil heating system. Read more about Mears' energy efficient house at LiveScience.com. Also, check out an 11-page paper (PDF) written by Prof. Mears about how he designed and implemented the heating system in his home.

In the U.K., the search is on for a giant rabbit that is stalking the countryside "taking huge bites out of cabbages, carrots and turnips." It's suspected that the creature, which could be around three feet in length, is actually an escaped domestic rabbit, developed by breeders to be especially large. (Pictured is such a rabbit, photograph by Michael Urban/AFP/Getty Images). Read more at National Geographic News.

The article also includes an audio interview with Grossinger, as well as his contact info should you spot a sasquatch footprint (pictured) while hiking in the Yukon.
During the first half-hour, expert in alternative medicine, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny gave her reaction to a proposed national flu pandemic response plan (article).

Tenpenny does not believe the bird flu will be a major health care crisis.
Past C2C guest and editor of Inexplicata, Scott Corrales is sharing the latest photos (taken on April 15, 2006) of Argentina's famous Lake Nahuel Huapi Monster. The photos, as well as a translated article about them from El Cordillerano Edicion, can be viewed at cryptomundo.com.
Major Ed Dames has sent us material related to the Matrix Intelligence Agency's 'Magnificent Seven' current operations/targets. Pictured is the l'Oiseau Blanc (White Bird) aircraft (archival photos/ downed location map). "The French aviators, Charles Nungesser and Francois Coli, did indeed succeed in their transatlantic crossing attempt, beating Charles Lindbergh by twelve days," but their plane crashed 400 kilometers from New York, he noted. A site search and a recovery operation by his group is scheduled for September, he added. Click here to view a map of the "next non man-made crop circle" (Northern Alberta, near the B.C. border). Genuine crop circles are akin to "ET calling cards," said Dames, who commented that the ability for humans to recognize in advance their locations could signal that we have reached "a level of consciousness required by the (ET) Federation [to be worthy of] contact."
William Henry has sent us a set of plates to accompany his presentation.

Researchers studying Near Death Experiences (NDEs) have found a possible physical component to the mysterious phenomenon. While not ruling out a spiritual dimension, a team at the Univ. of Kentucky discovered that those who have NDEs are more likely to experience sleep abnormalities. Specifically, rapid-eye movement (REM) sleep states occasionally intrude into their regular waking consciousness. First hour guest Dr. Jeff Long said he worked with Professor Kevin Nelson at the Univ. of Kentucky, providing his team with near death experiencers for their study. The research using "retrospective" subjects (many had had their NDEs years ago) doesn't debunk or disprove the phenomenon, said Long, who added that the control group, a set of hospital workers, may not have been candid about their own sleep problems for fear of reprisal.

The National Geographic Society has released several pages from the 'lost' Gospel of Judas. Reportedly more than 1,700 years old, the ancient text provides an alternative view into the relationship of Jesus and the disciple who betrayed him. According to the new gospel, Jesus asked Judas, a loyal friend, to turn him in to the authorities. Read more from the New York Times and view actual pages from the document here.

As the new comic film Alien Autopsy (website/IMDB) is being released, revelations about the original Ray Santilli footage are emerging. Reportedly, on the Sky One TV show, Eamon Investigates, Santilli admits that the footage shown in the original Alien Autopsy 1996 TV special was actually staged (he still claims to have authentic autopsy film in his possession that is in too poor condition to use). Confirming the deception, sculptor John Humphreys is speaking out for the first time about his part in creating the alien body used in the dissection.
Electromagnetic fields can be potentially hazardous to human health. The US military may exploit this fact as they study possibilities for new non-lethal weapons. Radio frequency/microwave (RF/MW) emitting systems are already in usage for anti-electronic weaponry, but now devices that release RF/MW radiation are reportedly being studied for "stunning/immobilizing the enemy."
