Mystery ghost fleet washes up in Japan

An unsettling mystery has washed up on Japan’s shores. Over the past two months a fleet of 12 ghost ships containing the rotting remains of sailors has washed up on the Japanese coastline, sparking an investigation in the country. These wooden boats have been found in the Sea of Japan on or near the coast, carrying a chilling cargo — the decaying bodies of 22 people. All the bodies were “partially skeletonized” — two were found without heads — and one boat contained six skulls, the coast guard said. The first boat was found in October, then a series of boats were found...

Sticks and Stones? Or Drones?

Are drones leading us to war? Albert Einstein once said that he didn’t know how World War III would be fought, though he did know about World War IV – with sticks and stones. He was warning us that our escalation of nuclear weapons would lead to a war where very little – and very few – were left standing. Today, what would Einstein think of the recent escalation of combat drones? Defense planners argue that drones save lives, sparing those who would’ve had to fight the enemy face to face, or gun-sight to gun-sight. Now, with drones, or UAVs (Unmanned Aerial...

Lab Grown Kidneys Transplanted Into Animals For Very First Time

Lab Grown Kidneys Transplanted Into Animals For Very First Time (Japan) Researchers at the Jikei University School of Medicine in Tokyo have detailed the alleged successful transplant of functional kidneys created in a lab for the very first time in both rats and pigs. Using a technique they call the “stepwise peristaltic ureter” system (SWPU) researchers were able to successfully attach the partially lab-grown kidneys into host subjects, allowing for continued growth of the new kidney while avoiding problems like hydronephrosis (blockage of the ureter tubes disallowing the passage of urine from kidney to  bladder). Kidneys were grown from embryonic tissue in...

Alien Abduction in Japanese Folk Tale?

Does a statue at an ancient shrine in southern Japan depict an alien abduction? Some Modern UFOlogists think it does. The statue depicts the very old and popular legend of Urashima: Taro the Fisherman. In the 8th century folktale Taro saves the life of a injured tortoise and is rewarded with a journey to an undersea kingdom. There he sees many things of wonder, including a huge and luxurious subterranean palace. If that wasn’t enough, the tortoise he saved has now transformed herself into a beautiful princess. She brings Taro to her father, the Emperor, who thanks him for saving his...

Abandoned Air Force Station Haunted?

In a small town in the middle of Western Tokyo, there sits a patch of green. It’s not a garden or a somebody’s yard, it’s something quite different and unexpected. It’s an abandoned military base. But not just any base. It’s the former headquarters of all the U.S. Pacific Forces during the Cold War. The installation is hard to see. That’s because it’s covered up by nature. Overgrown. Though no one has worked there for years, it’s by no means lifeless. Why was it abandoned? And why did the US Forces move north away from the area? Some say the base was...

Hi-Tech Solution for Japan’s Suicide Problem

  Pressure, pushing down on me. Pressing down on you. Under Pressure. Remember those lines sung by David Bowie and Freddie Mercury? The song Under Pressure warned of the stressful toll that modern life takes on us all. If you watch the first part of the music video, you’ll see thousands of people being herded into packed commuter trains. It’s Tokyo, on a rail line most noted for suicides. Packed trains and stress are a way of life – and death – in Japan. And jumping in front of one is an all too common way to commit suicide and...
