Man & his rescue cat travel 31,000 miles in their camper van (Video)

From entrepreneur couples, travelling creative professionals to outdoor enthusiasts looking for the next thrill, a growing number of people are choosing to live a little differently, converting vehicles like vans and buses into full-time homes on wheels. The reasons can be numerous: more financial freedom, as well the allure of travelling with your home as you see the wider world out there. These are some of the same reasons why Australian Rich East embarked on a cross-country trip in his simple van conversion. But he's not alone: so far, he's travelled 50,000 kilometers (over 31,000 miles) with his rescue cat,...

Cats are killing everything in Australia, and nobody knows what to do

Everyone knows that Australia is absolutely packed with strange, wild creatures that could kill you at a moment's notice, but if you're a bird your number one enemy is still a familiar one: cats. According to a new study, both domestic and feral cats are on a murder spree in Australia, killing as many as one million birds every single day, and it's actually becoming a problem. The researcher, which was published in the journal Biological Conversation, suggests that wild cats in Australia nab 316 million birds every single year, while domesticated pet cats add another 61 million to that...

“Teenage ghost girl” haunts commuters at Macquarie Fields railway station

LATE at night, when it’s still, and last trains have pulled out, “faint crying” can be heard carried on the breeze at Macquarie Fields station. Ghost hunters say it’s quiet at first but soon becomes much louder, sometimes accompanied by the terrifying spectre of a teenage girl wearing dancing clothes stained with blood. One group, the Sydney Spirit Stalkers — who “stalk the paranormal” — say the sounds are the “moans and groans of a young girl in her teens,” who comes out when the platforms are “nearly empty.” The haunting is reminiscent of the phantom girl in a white...

Scientists trace mystery ‘alien signals’ to distant galaxy

For the first time, scientists have successfully traced mysterious “fast radio bursts” (FRBs), which have been speculated to be signs of extraterrestrial intelligence, to a galaxy six billion light years away. Just 17 such radio blasts have been recorded since 2007 when they were first discovered. Each one came from space and lasted a few milliseconds at the most, emitting as much energy as the Sun in about 10,000 years. Scientists are not sure what causes these bursts. The first step in establishing their origin was to estimate the distance to the object where it originated. Astronomer Evan Keane from...

Significant Release Of Never-Before-Seen Australian Government UFO Policy

After months of too’ing and fro’ing, I have successfully had the Australian Department of Defence (DOD) declassify and release never-before-seen UFO policy material, and a significant fraction of it is very interesting, to say the least. But, first, I would like to do what researcher Bill Chalker calls “due diligence” and clarify a few things… Way back in 1984, The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) downgraded its investigative responsibilities in regards to UFO sightings. No longer did the RAAF’s Directorate of Air Force Intelligence (DAFI) base-level officers have to investigate all UFO sightings submitted by the general public. This wasn’t...
