Germany has closed its last black coal mine today, a milestone marking the end of a 200-year-old industry that once fuelled the country's economic growth but lost the battle against cheaper foreign competitors. The remaining 1,500 workers of the Prosper-Haniel mine in Bottrop made their final descent into the pit's belly, greeting each other one more time with the traditional "Glueck auf, Kumpel", or "Good luck, buddy". The miners ended their shift by bringing up the last chunk of "black gold" and handing it to President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in a ceremony also to be attended by European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker. A mining choir will has sung the miners' anthem "Steigerlied" and local churches will held special services in what promises to be a poignant farewell to a historic era in western Germany's industrial Ruhr heartland. The 150-year-old deep-shaft colliery, whose galleries were dug by six generations of miners and sealed up for good. Although the closure comes amid a growing environmental outcry against coal, the dirtiest fossil fuel, it wasn't pollution concerns but cheaper imports from abroad that sounded the mine's death knell. Dating back to the 19th century, the coal mines, plants and steel mills that once dotted the Ruhr basin were long the beating heart of Germany's industrial prowess, powering its economic "miracle" after World War II. At its peak, the mining industry employed 600,000 people. But Germany's dominance in the black-coal market started to wane in the 1960s as foreign rivals made it cheaper to import the raw material. Today most of the black coal, also known as hard coal, used in Germany's coal-fired power plants comes from Russia, the United States, Australia and Colombia. Chancellor Angela Merkel's government decided in 2007 to phase out state aid and shutter the last black coal mines by 2018 -- giving the workers of Prosper-Haniel 11 years' notice.

When a small Vancouver mining company Nevsun struck gold in a remote corner of Africa, it started with so much promise. In remote Eritrea, Nevsun built a mine that was generating $700 million in profits in its first four years of operation. But it was also generating a lot of controversy – because Nevsun was partnered with a brutal dictatorship that runs the country and controls 40% of the mine. That has led to allegations by the UN and Human Rights Watch that the regime has used conscripted military labour in the mine. The Eritrea government has also been accused of funneling arms to the terrorist group al-Shabaab. Nevsun denies the allegations of human rights abuses and insists it is a “template for responsible international business.” What is the price of doing business with a dictator? Mark Kelley investigates. For more on the fifth estate : http://www.cbc.ca/fifth Follow us on Twitter : http://www.twitter.com/cbcfifth Like us on Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/thefifthestate

Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN In the war-torn Central African Republic, former rebels who mounted a coup in 2013 are now dreaming of independence. FRANCE 24’s reporters James André and Anthony Fouchard went to meet one of the most powerful armed groups in the country, in the capital of their parallel state in the north. Since gaining independence from France in 1960, the Central African Republic has never truly experienced peace. In March 2013, a coalition of rebel groups called the Seleka seized power in country’s fifth coup d'état. Leaders on all sides exploited religious tensions for political ends and the country descended into violence. The Seleka, led by Michel Djotodia, was forced to give up power after nine months, completely unable to restore security. Under UN auspices, France deployed more than 2,000 soldiers to restore a fragile peace and avoid what it called a “genocide". But President Faustin-Archange Touadéra, who was elected in March 2016, has still not managed to bring calm to a country devastated by civil war. On the contrary: violence actually resumed in the capital Bangui in April 2018. ►► On France24.com: Central African Republic's president Touadéra slams 'enemies of the peace' Since being routed, the rebels have been divided and fragmented, but have maintained their ability to cause trouble. The Popular Front for the Renaissance of the Central African Republic (known by its French acronym FPRC) is one of the most powerful armed groups. Abdoulaye Hissène, the FPRC’s military leader, is based in the northeastern town of Ndélé, but is massing his troops at the gates of Bangui. Towards a partition of the country? Although the prospect of a fresh coup seems unlikely, everyone is wondering about a possible partition of the country. The rebels prefer to talk about federalism and autonomy. Although they control all the main roads, provide security and even levy taxes, they do not want to create the impression of cutting ties with the central government, which does not consider the north a priority. The FPRC now wants to improve its image, severely tarnished after the violence of 2013. The rebels are literally sitting on a gold and diamond mine, the northeast being rich in natural resources. This is attracting Russian private security companies, officially invited by the central government to train army recruits. The climate is tense, but in the meantime, Abdoulaye Hissène knows very well that the weak army cannot dislodge him. "My men are in Bangui, they are just waiting for the political green light," he says. Whether he’s bluffing or not, guns speak louder than words and appear to be the main negotiating method in this region. http://www.france24.com/en/reporters Visit our website: http://www.france24.com Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://f24.my/youtubeEN Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FRANCE24.English Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/France24_en

FIRST LOOK Inside the FEDERAL RESERVE, USD, CASH, GOLD monetary SYSTEM - Americas Money Vault, National Geographic Full Episode PART 1 For the first time, National Geographic takes you inside the heart of the money machine to places that you're not allowed to bring a camera ...straight into the vaults of some of the world's largest stashes of what you want, need and bust your butt to get: Money. Hidden deep under the streets of New York City, hundreds of billion dollars in gold bars are tucked away in a bunker that is anchored to the bedrock of Manhattan Island itself. In the latest in a string of high-profile hacking disclosures, the Federal Reserve confirmed on Wednesday that one of its websites was broken into by cyber hackers in a breach that reportedly leaked the contact information of thousands of bankers. While the central bank said the incident didn't "affect critical operations" of the Federal Reserve System, the disclosure is sure to fuel concerns about the cyber security of government websites and critical financial infrastructure. The Fed hack appears to be tied to an Anonymous group that published on Twitter the credentials of more than 4,000 commercial bankers early Monday morning. The group, Operation Last Resort, said it received the documents "via the FED." Call it the Rick Perry gold rush: The governor wants to bring the state's gold reserves back from a New York vault to Texas. And he may have legislative support to do it. Freshman Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, is carrying a bill that would establish the Texas Bullion Depository, a secure state-based bank to house $1 billion worth of gold bars owned by the University of Texas Investment Management Co., or UTIMCO, and stored by the Federal Reserve. "If you think gold is a hedge, or a protection, you always want it as close to the individual and the entity as possible," Paul told The Texas Tribune on Thursday. "Texas is better served if it knows exactly where the gold is rather than depending on the security of the Federal Reserve." Sadly, most Americans don't even realize that a private banking cartel has a monopoly over all money creation in this country. In recent years they have abused this power by wildly printing money ("quantitative easing"), and by making more than 16 trillion dollars in secret loans to their friends during the last financial crisis. "Neither the Treasury Department nor the Federal Reserve believes that the law can or should be used to facilitate the production of platinum coins for the purpose of avoiding an increase in the debt limit" remaining alternative to Congress raising the nation's borrowing limit, which would utilize a loophole in federal law to mint a $1 trillion coin to be deposited in the Federal Reserve and ensure the federal government could pay all bills and debt obligations. gold, money, cash fed, "federal reserve" ,bank ,banking ,bankers ,system, matrix ,monetary ,vault, "armored vehicle", police, cops, control, mafia, episode, tv, show, america ,u.s, "united states", american, nyc, "new york" ,"new york city" ,"gold bullion" ,"scrap gold", "buy gold", "sell gold" ,"silver coins" ,"silver bullion", "u.s. mint" ,inside, "first look" ,usd ,dollar ,crash, crisis, trust, etf, "paper gold" ,stocks, trading, investment, investing, future, world, global, supply, debt, 2013, forces, vault ,control, illuminati, new world order ,alex jones, infowars, gerald celente, david icke ,farrakhan ,lindsey williams, tvfirst123 You can thank the reckless money printing that the Federal Reserve has been doing for the incredible bull market that we have seen in recent months. When the Federal Reserve does more "quantitative easing", it is the financial markets that benefit the most. The Dow and the S&P 500 have both hit levels not seen since 2007 this month, and many analysts are projecting that 2013 will be a banner year for stocks. But is a rising stock market really a sign that the overall economy is rapidly improving as many are suggesting? Of course not. Just because the Federal Reserve has inflated another false stock market bubble Barack Obama has been president, 40 percent of all American workers are making $20,000 a year or less, median household income has declined for four years in a row, and poverty in the United States is absolutely exploding. So quantitative easing has definitely not made things better for the middle class. But all of the money printing that the Fed has been doing has worked out wonderfully for Wall Street. Profits are soaring at Goldman Sachs and luxury estates in the Hamptons are selling briskly. Unfortunately, this is how things work in America these days. Our "leaders" seem far more concerned with the welfare of Wall Street than they do about the welfare of the American people. When things get rocky, their first priority always seems to be to do whatever it takes to pump up the financial markets Category Entertainment License Standard YouTube License

Subscribe to my channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLLM60mGcqjz7SBZegfquiw Australia is the only liberal democracy that does not have a Bill of Rights or a Federal Act protecting our human rights. Instead our rights are protected through a combination of the Constitution, common law and legislation. There is no single document protecting our rights and freedoms – in this we are the outlier from most developed countries. This means that the parliament can change many of our rights and freedoms by passing legislation. This allows the government to pass data retention laws that potentially breach our privacy and can restrict our freedom of speech. A big reason we have many of our rights and freedoms is because no one has wanted to take (too many of) them away. If a government determinedly tried to take some of our rights away, there’s very little the courts could do about it. Codifying our rights in the Constitution would provide an extra safeguard against governmental tyranny. While a Bill of Rights was defeated in the 1988 referendum, it’s worth having another go.

The Government is bending over backwards to help the oil and gas sectors at the cost to taxpayers, says Greenpeace's executive director Bunny McDiarmid. Speaking on TV3's The Nation, Ms McDiarmid said the government had invested $20 million so far to attract oil companies, had spent $46 million in tax breaks, and was passing legislation to make it easier for the companies to set up in New Zealand. "The New Zealand Government is making it incredibly easy for these guys to get in, incredibly easy to take all their profits away." But Chris Baker, the CEO of Straterra which advocates for mining companies, disagrees that the mining sector has it made. "There's nothing easy in the ride, and there's nothing mutually exclusive about the options that we've got if there's an economic case for more investment in geothermal energy," said Mr Baker. David Robinson, the CEO of Petroluem Exploration and Production Association (PEPANZ), said New Zealand had the best regulations in the world. "The reality of our industry is we have to jump through so many hoops to go and drill a well, it's not funny." He also dismissed Ms McDiarmid's claim that offshore explorers get preferential treatment through legislation. He said the industry contributes greatly to the national economy, and New Zealand was in competition with every other nation around the world for the explorer's dollar. "There are plenty of other places around the world to explore for oil, and every country that has it tries to get it out and use it." But Ms McDiarmid said the Government should be investing in other areas to create a clean energy economy which allowed New Zealanders to keep the money in the country. "We're at a point in our economy where we have to make choices about where we put a limited amount of our financial investment. "Why would we choose to put it into deep sea oil when we have the world class clean energy resources here?"

http://www.abc.net.au/rn/breakfast There's a little known story of a small group of rough and ready Australian troops and their remarkable exploits in Timor during World War Two. Recruited mainly from the bush in 1942, these men became the first Australians to successfully fight guerrilla warfare. They were launching relentless hit and run raids on the Japanese months before the fighting on the Kokoda track. They also proved the Japanese could not only be matched, but also beaten. Their enemy dubbed them 'The Men Who Came Out of the Ground', which is the title of a new book by journalist and author Paul Cleary. You might recall we spoke to Paul in 2007 about his book 'Shakedown' which discussed the quest for rights to the lucrative oil and gas resources in the Timor Sea. Paul spent a decade in the Canberra press gallery and is also an adviser to the East Timorese government.

French/Nat Work on new government offices in Cambodia has run into an unexpected problem - a huge munitions dump, hidden more than 20 years ago. It's just a fraction of the weapons still hidden across the country - and more are being discovered as the war-torn country rebuilds. After more than three weeks of digging they're almost done. What started with a blip on a metal detector has become an arsenal of nearly three-thousand heavy mortar and artillery shells. They date from the days of the ill-fated Lon Nol republic. The clearance work looks reckless, but in fact the men are in little danger - none of the shells has a detonator, though they do still contain explosives. During the Khmer Rouge advance on the town of Siem Reap in the mid-70s, this site was a government gun position. Before they fled, the troops evidently buried the remaining ammunition. It was only unearthed recently, during nearby work on new government offices. It's a familiar tale in Cambodia. In a warehouse near the centre of Siem Reap the relics from just three months work by a single mine-disposal group are being stored. It's a virtual war museum with weapons from every recent conflict - with the Americans, the Khmer Rouge and the Vietnamese. Jean Pierre Billault leads the mine disposal engineers. SOUNDBITE: (French) "It is true that in this place, we can find, in one small place, the story of what we can make to kill our brothers. We found a whole tip of ammunition they use during the last 30 years." SUPER CAPTION: Col. Jean Pierre Billault, Cidev Demining Group Just a few kilometres away stand the world-renowned temples of Angkor Wat, the country's biggest tourist attraction. Once heavily mined, it is this very dangerous type of excavation that's helped make them safe, securing a vital flow of tourist dollars. This unit is part of a group that's 140-strong. It's long-term work. SOUNDBITE: (French) "It's a very very long time. But really no one knows exactly the number of mines but I'm sure that in fifty years, in a hundred years we will still speak about mines in Cambodia." SUPER CAPTION: Col. Jean Pierre Billault, Cidev Demining Group Every month, the countryside around Siem Reap gets a violent reminder of the past. This is two point six tonnes of old American-made mortar shells being detonated. UPSOUND EXPLOSION Every month Cambodians die or are maimed by old munitions. Here near the cradle of the Khmer civilization work goes on to shed history's deadly legacy.

Today, the European Commision reiterated its position that the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement cannot be reopened despite demands from the British Government for the “temporary” nature of the controversial backstop proposals to legally clarified. European Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva told reporters in Brussels that the Withdrawal Agreement was final and said that that Prime Minister Theresa May had not discussed any plans to open the agreement with President Jean-Claude Juncker. Miss Andreeva said: “I think we have said many times that the deal that is on the table is the best and only deal possible and the EU 27 leaders confirmed on the 13th of December in their conclusion that it will not be renegotiated.” “So on the EU side we have started the process of ratification on this basis and we will now follow closely the ratification process in the UK.” An EU source said nothing had happened regarding Brexit over the last 10 days, though May had spoken with the head of the European council, Donald Tusk. The prime minister spoke to the German chancellor twice during the holiday period. The British government is pushing for further guarantees on the Irish backstop, the fallback plan to prevent the return of a hard border on the island of Ireland. With only 85 days until Brexit, the last-ditch push for guarantees has intensified concern about the damaging effects of the UK crashing out without a deal. UPDATE 4th JANUARY 2018: Few minutes ago, spokeswoman Mina Andreeva has confirmed that European Commission President Juncker is back at his office and he will have a call with UK's Prime Minister Theresa May, this afternoon (4th January 2018).

Sydney Ferries - Gotta LOVE Sydney Ferries Maritime Union Of Australia A coalition of unions, activists and community groups has launched a new campaign to keep Sydney's famous green and gold ferries in public hands. Applications from private companies to tender for the operation of Sydney's harbour ferries close today. The campaign was launched by the legendary heritage and trade union activist Jack Mundey, under the banner "Gotta Love Sydney Ferries - some things are too important to sell off". "Our green and gold ladies of the harbour epitomise its working class heritage," Mr Mundey said. "They provide a first rate transport service in an idyllic setting. "Selling them off is like plastering a for sale sign across the Sydney Opera House, some things are just too important to sell." The Save Our Sydney Ferries campaign will roll out in key communities serviced by ferries on the Harbour and the Parramatta River. Maritime Union of Australia Assistant Secretary Paul Garrett said the community and workers would stand side-by-side to help Sydney Ferries remain in public hands. "Sydney Ferries are one of the cleanest, safest and most enjoyable ways to get around the heart of our city. It makes sense that they should be owned and operated for the people, by the people," Mr Garrett said. Since the Walker Review, Sydney Ferries has turned a corner and is now one of the best performing public transport operators in Australia. Reliability has increased to 99.5 per cent and on time running continues to rise at 98.1 per cent. Vessel incidents on the harbour involving Sydney Ferries have dropped from 109 in 2007-08 to 61 in 2008-09 and complaints have reduced from 1,220 to 889 over the same period. "These statistics show that Sydney Ferries are safe and reliable. They are also an affordable way for people to travel and a popular tourist attraction for the many destinations around Sydney Harbour," Mr Garrett said. Today's community rally was joined by the Balmain Ukulele Club who penned a song for the occasion. Produced by Jamie McMechan Maritime Union of Australia - Film Unit.

Alastair Walton gives the Schuman Lecture for 2012, entitled New Alliances: Australia and Europe in a G20 World. This video was recorded at The Australian National University on 23 May 2012. In an increasingly globalised world, Australia's long term prosperity relies on its ability to maintain a highly productive, flexible and open economy. Effective relations with the world's economic powers are therefore paramount. Arguably, the European Union is the world's leading soft power. In the Schuman Lecture, Mr Walton will substantiate that it is in Australia's interest to take a whole of government approach to influence European thinking, as well as build Australia's national brand in Brussels and Europe's other capitals to better harness and influence the direction of European soft power in support of Australia's strategic needs. The efforts of former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Ambassador to the EU Brendan Nelson have fundamentally shifted Australia's approach to Europe and are evolving Europe's often misguided understanding of the Australian economy. Australia should continue to build on the momentum of this new phase of the relationship by pursuing an ambitious bilateral agenda, including the negotiation of a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement, commissioning a white paper on Europe's influence in global affairs - including the various Europe-based multilateral agencies -, the appointment of an Ambassador for Europe, and undertaking a review of financial and operational resources in Australia's key international agencies, specifically DFAT, Austrade and Ausaid. Alastair Walton is President and Chairman of the Board of the European Australian Business Council (EABC). He is a career investment banker who is Chairman of BKK Partners, an independent investment bank providing financial and corporate advice to Australian companies and institutions. He is also Chairman of Indochina Gateway Capital Limited which focuses on agri-business investments in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Alastair is a former Chairman and Managing Director of Goldman Sachs Australia. He is also a former Chairman of Central Rand Gold Limited, a holding company for a group of companies engaged in gold mining and exploration in Johannesburg, South Africa. This lecture is organised jointly by the ANU College of Business and Economics and the ANU Centre for European Studies.

A new film reveals unseen footage of coal, corruption and community resistance of one of Australia’s most controversial mining projects – Whitehaven’s Maules Creek Coal Mine in the Leard State Forest. Coal, corruption and community resistance. In light of Adani and Shenhua approvals and the government’s move to strip communities of the right to challenge government decisions under the EPBC. Also with subsequent issues concerning the radicalisation awareness kit the film is especially pertinent. Set against the backdrop of the mining industry’s ever-increasing thirst for fossil fuels, Black Hole is an intense and riveting exposé. Revealing unseen footage of the Maules Creek coal mine blockade, police misconduct, corporate spies and the destruction of sacred Indigenous burial sites, Black Hole brings to life the power imbalance between big corporations and communities.

This recording took place in 1991 at the Centenary Celebrations for the Aboriginal town of Mapoon in Far North Queensland. Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this recording may feature the voices of people now deceased. Mapoon is a beautiful small, coastal town in tropical Far North Queensland location on the Western Cape of Cape York Peninsula. The town has had a long and colourful history from it's traditional times to being a Missionary town (see old photograph of the Mission house and church in the slide-show). In 1963 (post-Mission days) the townspeople were forcibly removed from their homes by the then Queensland Government in an attempt to clear the locals off the land in order to mine for bauxite- a venture which was never successful. The houses were burnt to the ground while residents were loaded onto boats and sent to places such as Thursday Island in the Torres Strait Islands and "New" Mapoon further north of the Peninsula. This dark moment in history was said to have been the inspiration for the song Beds Are Burning by Australia band Midnight Oil. Many of the Mapoon people have since returned home and the town is looking better and better with a promising future ahead of it! The Centenary Celebrations in 1991 and the Paanja Festival (the 50 year commemoration of the Burning of Mapoon) are two major events which has symbolised the strength, survival and unity of the Mapoon people. (PS sorry about the watermark on the images, I used a trial version of a movie editing program). NOTE: I do not know the original recorder of this recording but I thank them and only intend for it, now being on Youtube, to provide only for the entertainment and education of the public, to preserve the culture and heritage of Mapoon and to pay respect to my countrymen and women.

The Australian shares opened firmer this morning after Wall Street rose on speculation that the Federal Reserve would provide more stimulus to the US economy. Mining sector delivered a strong gain in early trade, as BHP Billiton posted a report of record annual production. The benchmark S&P/ASX200 Index gained 0.72 per cent today in early trade while the broader All Ordinaries was up 0.7 per cent. In economics news on Wednesday, the Westpac-Melbourne Institute releases index of economic activity for May. Company News Amcor (ASX:AMC) has reached agreement to sell its Tobepal operations in Spain to Constantia Packaging AG (WBAG:COV) for a consideration of Euro 92 million. The deal has been approved by the European Commission, which required the divestment at the time of approving Amcor's acquisition of parts of the Alcan Packaging business. The business sold is expected to have an EBIT for fiscal year 2009/10 of approximately Euro 11 million and sales of Euro 103 million, said Amcor. BHP Billiton (ASX:BHP) said the mining giant's petroleum and Western Australia iron ore achieved record annual production record for the year ended 30 June 2010. Petroleum delivered its third consecutive annual production record of 158.56 million boe for the year to June, up 15 per cent from last year. Iron ore production rose 9 per cent to hit 125 million tonnes for the year. But the company continues to be cautious on the short term outlook for the global economy, while governments adjust fiscal policies after significant stimulus and subsequent increase in sovereign debt levels. Volatility in commodity end-demand is expected to persist following China's measures to slow down growth. BHP Billiton says it sees these measures as a normal continuation of China's economic management policies. Retail group Woolworths Limited (ASX:WOW) reported a full year sales of A$51.7 billion, a 4.2 per cent increase on the previous year. Sales for the supermarket division rose 4.2 per cent to A$44.3 billion. Woolworths Chief Executive Officer, Michael Luscombe said supermarkets division has responded well to customer demand for value and has further enhanced its position in the market. National Australia Bank (ASX:NAB) says its asset servicing arm is in talks with BNY Mellon Asset Servicing with regard to deepening the long-standing partnership and enhancing the range of products and services available to clients. A joint venture will be formed to combine NAB's offering the Australian asset servicing market with BNY Mellon's extensive global capability. NAB said specific elements of the partnership would be explored in coming months.

A Qld State Government review of the Births, Death and Marriages register could mean parents don’t have to list their child’s sex on their birth certificate... The Queensland Government of Annastacia Palaszczuk is proposing to change birth certificates to allow people to register as Male, Female, Indeterminate, Unspecified or Intersex. A discussion paper from Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath says that Queensland should follow the ACT and South Australia, which have adopted these new forms of birth certificates. The paper fails to point out that strong opposition from feminists saw the Tasmanian Human Rights Commission drop a similar proposal, while the Victorian Upper House voted down transgendering Victorian birth certificates in 2016. When Victorian opposition parliamentarians asked, “if a person can change their sex, can they also change their age or change their race?” Labor members had no answer. The Queensland push has come from transgenders who say that requiring a person to undergo sex change surgery to change their sex on their birth certificate discriminates against people who identity as opposite to their sex at birth or as having some other gender identity. for more.... http://www.newsweekly.com.au/article.php?id=58053 video source - https://www.facebook.com/7NewsBrisbane/videos/1902287459784097/?hc_ref=ARSA-v3nI-QTNi8fdGaGjVVix0zYXk8gLhjLnc0iKsOtWBlsggknXUDCHrdpUGIIONc&fref=gs&dti=1986725671650316&hc_location=group ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆AUSTRALIA Will Unite☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ ☆Against Safe Schools, Gender Theory & CSE☆ ☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆21st April 2018 - 1pm☆☆☆☆☆☆ ☆☆☆@ your State/Territory Parliament - Qld, Vic & ACT☆☆☆ https://twitter.com/LetOurKIDSBKIDS https://www.facebook.com/groups/parentsunitedforkidsNational/ please answer the questions if you join the fb group, it makes the Admins job much easier... it is National after all!! ☆comments/suggestions - [email protected] twitter - @AussieAnirtak76 gab - @Anirtak76 ☆website - https://ssalok.wixsite.com/ssalok/ ☆To support my ongoing efforts here & elsewhere - https://www.paypal.me/Anirtak76 https://www.patreon.com/Anirtak76 *for the information, education &/or entertainment of the public.

The Earth is Not Alone: https://youtu.be/VymuQC0o7yQ LIVING UNIVERSE is an interstellar adventure that seeks to answer the most profound question of all: are we alone? Based on the latest scientific knowledge, we will take a journey to a planet beyond our solar system in search of life. We ask the world's leading space scientists what we might find if we travel to a neighboring star system. Recent breakthroughs have proven that every star we see in the sky is orbited by at least one planet, many similar to our own Earth. How do we get to these "exoplanets"? Once there, what will we find? And what will it mean for humanity when we discover we are not alone? Our speculative journey through space is set a hundred years in the future - when we have the technology to journey well beyond our solar system. On this first expedition, our star ship Aurora will be piloted not by astronauts, but by the artificial intelligence (A.I.) we call Artemis. We imagine how Artemis travels through space, on its 25-year journey, at one fifth of the speed of light. Its objective is Minerva B, a planet much like our own, with an atmosphere, temperature and liquid water that appears a likely candidate to contain life. With spectacular special effects we will reach and explore a new planet as we seek to answer the most profound question of all: are we alone in the universe? Our guides on this journey are narrator Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and as the voice of our AI, Artemis, real-life astrophysicist, Professor Tamara Davis. Inspired and informed by our rapidly developing knowledge of far-off worlds, our best scientists - including NASA engineers, astrophysicists and astronomers - we will discover that this amazing journey is not only possible, it is inevitable. To venture into distant space is our destiny. LIVING UNIVERSE captures a pivotal moment in the human story. A film full of insight and inspiration certain to thrill anyone who dreams of distant worlds, or have ever wondered why are we here? Have you ever wondered that someone like you, sitting less than a mile away, in some other universe, exists? The possibility in itself seems frightening as well as astonishing. "From breaking news and intriguing historical documentaries to conspiracy theories, classified NASA files and UFO's. We provide you with material that the government doesn't want you to see." The Insomnia team comes up with a promise. To keep up with the same, the team now brings to us a documentary that aims to change your perspective Of another existence, of another possibility, as today, the scientists now believe there may really be the presence of a parallel universe - and in fact, also believe that there may be an infinite number of parallel universes, and where we live today just happens to be only one of them and many of these other parallel universes come with different laws of physics as well. These other universes that we are talking about not only contain space, time and strange forms of exotic matter but to surprise you, Some of them may even contain you, only maybe in a slightly different form. The thought itself is quite intriguing and scary on the same hand. The basis of this theory is as we know it the idea that parallel universes are constantly spinning off from reality that we humans know of. "Though generally ignored at the time, that theory has gone on to become not just a popular topic of study among respected physicists, but the inspiration for such popular films, television shows, and books as Star Trek and The Golden Compass." according to the sources. The video soon progresses into the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP), that is now changing everything, as some say that the remarkable images reveal the true shape of the universe through baby pictures of the same from the time when it was 4 hundred thousand years old, looking so back in time, when there wasn't even the formation of galaxies yet. The WMAP is catching the very first signs of creation as it is officially tagged with measuring radiation that is left over from Big Bang. And now scientists have devised an experiment to find the overall true shape of the universe. The WMAP hence shows that the universe is flat. From here arises the possibility of more mind boggling parallel universe that are of the level-2 type and is made up of giant cosmic soap bubbles that float in hyperspace. Each of these bubbles within it has a whole universe. Now, the question that arises is that - Do we all live in a giant cosmic bubble? Journey to another stars finding lives on other planets
