A Watertown school will reopen Wednesday after some exploding tiles forced classes to be canceled Tuesday. Tiles in the cafeteria started to buckle and explode Monday at St. Henry's Catholic School. "And I looked at the tiles on the floor. (They) were raising up and flying across the kitchen floor. So, we got out of the cafeteria and told the kids to go up to their classrooms. Eventually, they were evacuated," St. Henry's Cooking Manager Diane Dannenberg said. "It looked like the movie 'Tremors' where something was tunneling underneath the floor." Some described exploding, but the floor definitely buckled. The city's building inspector said the part of the building affected was built in 1952. Investigators are looking at all sorts of possibilities to explain why these tiles lifted off the ground. After 20 years as the city's building inspector, Joe Heimsch said he was baffled after first looking at this basement.WATCH: Mysterious explosion and ground swell in Watertown.
"My hope is it's some kind of sanitary line that was improperly abandoned, and it could have came up, and that would have caused the same type of effect," Heimsch said. "The worst-case scenario is actual foundation movement. I'm hoping that's not the case." Heimsch told 12 News Tuesday afternoon that there was nothing life-threatening or dangerous at the school, but lunches will definitely be affected, regardless of the buckling's cause. "If they return back, they're going to be bringing bagged lunches. I'm afraid this kitchen will probably be down the rest of the year," Heimsch said. Hot lunches for St. Bernard Catholic School in Watertown are also affected. Students will not have to make up the missed time because they didn't have any snow days this year." - WISN.

GEOLOGICAL UPHEAVAL: High Strangeness - Ground Swelling and Exploding Kitchen Tiles in Watertown, Wisconsin?!
The following article and video, constitutes a story from Watertown in Wisconsin, that was reported on, earlier this week. The incident lends more credible evidence to the theory that something more than just the U.S. Geological Survey's (USGS) explanation of a 1.5 magnitude earthquake, is the cause for the mysterious booms that have been heard for over six months in Clintonville.
MONUMENTAL EARTH CRISIS: "Planet Under Pressure" - Scientists Warn of "Humanitarian Emergency on a Global Scale"!
Leading scientists on Thursday called on the upcoming Rio Summit to grapple with environmental ills that they said pointed to "a humanitarian emergency on a global scale ." In a "State of the Planet" declaration issued after a four-day conference , the scientists said Earth was now facing unprecedented challenges, from water stress, pollution and species loss to spiraling demands for food.
They called on the June 20-22 followup to the 1992 Earth Summit to overhaul governance of the environment and sweep away a fixation with GDP as the sole barometer of wellbeing. "The continuing function of the Earth system as it has supported the wellbeing of human civilisation in recent centuries is at risk," said the statement issued at the "Planet Under Pressure" conference. "These threats risk intensifying economic, ecological and social crises, creating the potential for a humanitarian emergency on a global scale." The conference gathered nearly 3,000 environment scientists, economists, business executives and policymakers in the runup to the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio. In a recorded message, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he welcomed the declaration, saying "its timing... could not be better." "Climate change, the financial crisis and food, water and energy security threaten human wellbeing and civilisation as we know it," he said.
Ban added that he was considering appointing a scientific board or a chief scientific advisor to advise him and other UN organs. The conference declaration said humanity's impact on Earth was now so great that a new era -- "the Anthropocene," a term derived from the Greek word for human -- had emerged. Globalisation has shown that economies and societies are now "highly interconnected and interdependent," it said. These changes have brought stability and innovation but created a system vulnerable to sudden stress, as the global financial meltdown and surge in food prices had shown. Tackling the problems of global environment change will mean major reforms, it said. One is the question of governance. "Existing international arrrangements are not dealing quickly enough with current global challenges such as climate change and biodiversity loss," said the statement. It called for a "polycentric approach" for planetary stewardship, meaning a diverse partnership between local, national and regional governments that also includes business and grassroots groups. But another need was to scrap obsessions with gross domestic product (GDP) as the only benchmark of progress. Governments should also include environment, health and social factors. "A crucial transformation is to move away from income as the key constituent of wellbeing and to develop new indicators that measure actual improvements in wellbeing at all scales," the declaration said. - Yahoo.
You don't have to be tinfoil underwear type to get uneasy about some of the bizarre projects that DARPA throws its weight behind. But the organic matter-consuming EATR robot? Oh. God.
The defense research agency has announced they'll be funding the EATR project—the Energetically Autonomous Tactical Robot—which aims to build a lumbering mechanical creature that lives off of flesh, both plant and animal:
EATR is an autonomous robotic platform able to perform long-range, long-endurance military missions without the need for manual or conventional re-fueling. The patent pending robotic system can find, ingest and extract energy from biomass in the environment, as well as use conventional and alternative fuels (such as gasoline, diesel, propane and solar) when suitable.It's actually a steam-powered machine, which employs a biomass furnace that can be fed by all manner of organic materials, harvested with its "gripper" claw and chainsaw. The EATR's ideal source of fuel would probably be foliage, not humans, but there are just too many red flags here. Claws? Chainsaws? "Organic matter" and "biomass" euphemisms? Not to mention this is the second death-powered machine we've seen in as many weeks. The project is set to be completed in about 90 days, so enjoy the next three months, folks. - Gizmodo.
RATTLE & HUM: "The Sounds of the Apocalypse" - USGS Cover-Up; Seismometer Station Rules Out Earthquakes as Cause of Clintonville Booms?!
Despite official claims to the contrary, early data from a seismometer station in Wisconsin rules out earthquakes as an explanation for last night’s mysterious booms in the town of Clintonville, as residents continue to clamor for answers amidst increasing suspicion.
After the US Geological Survey explained last week’s booms by noting they had found a previously undiscovered earthquake hit the town on Tuesday (despite the fact that the booms were first reported the previous Sunday), city officials declared the situation “case closed”. However, the booms returned again last night louder than before, with police receiving dozens of calls from concerned residents from 10:35pm onwards. Ignoring skepticism from residents towards the ‘earthquake’ explanation, city administrator Lisa Kuss again blamed natural seismic activity during television interviews this morning, despite the fact that Wisconsin is rarely hit by earthquakes and to have two in the space of a week is unheard of. However, with Kuss set to talk with the USGS again today, early indications suggest that last night’s booms did not correlate with any earthquake activity in the state. “A preliminary review of seismic activity recorded at two permanent seismometer stations in Wisconsin did not indicate even a low-level earthquake at Clintonville late Tuesday, a spokesman for the National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., said,” reports the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. Geophysicist Joe Bellini also looked at data from nearby seismometers which “detected nothing from last night.”WATCH: Booms return to Clintonville.
The lack of earthquake activity suggests that residents were right to have doubts about naturally occurring seismic events being to blame for the booms, skepticism that was prompted by the fact that the jolts were also heard 80 miles away in a different town. A 1.5 magnitude earthquake, which the USGS says was to blame for last week’s booms, would not even be felt outside of a few blocks around its epicenter. The notion that this could produce aftershocks is also inconceivable, especially given the fact that last night’s noises were reportedly louder and lasted longer than the initial booms reported ten days ago. If the booms are being artificially created by man-made activity, the culprits are unlikely to own up to it. There are numerous potential scenarios besides seismic activity that could be responsible for the booms, including CO2 sequestration storage, which has been documented to cause “small to moderate earthquakes,” according to Stanford geophysicist Mark Zoback. Other speculation has centered around secret underground military tunneling work, improper disposal of wastewater from a natural gas fracking operation (also documented to cause earthquakes), or more exotic explanations such as the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), which is often blamed for unexplained weather and seismic events due to its highly secretive nature. - Info Wars.
REVELATION OF THE METHOD: The Transhumanism Agenda and the Alien Gospel - Secrets of Prometheus Film Leaked!
In the following video, noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones breaks down the revelation of the method and the transhumanism agenda behind Prometheus, the new film by legendary director Ridley Scott (Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator) hitting theaters June 8.
The secret is that the elite believe they are attaining godhood and are destined for the stars. Their ancient and occultic views are reflected in the dark themes of Prometheus, the very name of which hints at the quest for eternity and power among a group who think a divine right bestowed by a higher intelligence gives credence to their meddling with the affairs of common man. - Info Wars.WATCH: Alex Jones reveals secrets behind Prometheus.
TERMINATOR NOW: The Rise of the Machines and the Robotization of Warfare - Sand Flea Robot Leaps Onto 30ft Buildings, Heads to the Afghanistan for Testing!
It doesn’t look like much, kind of a simple RC car. That is, until it jumps. Boston Dynamics just released a video of their Sand Flea robot, and man can it jump. It rolls around, then stops, rears back on its hind wheels, and springs over walls and onto roofs – up to 30 feet high! It’s jumping is accurate enough that it can even leap into a second story window. You wanna scare the neighbors?
A CO2-powered piston gives the 11 pound Sand Flea its jumping power. Boston Dynamics hopes the little jumper will improve surveillance capabilities of soldiers on the battlefield. You’ll notice in the video below that the Sand Flea does a pretty good job landing flat on its four wheels. That’s not only for stability control, but to get the best possible video feed from an onboard camera. It won’t provide useful surveillance if its spinning end over end. A gyro stabilizer helps it to keep level during flight.WATCH: Sand Flea Jumping Robot.
If you’ve seen Alpha Dog, you know that Boston Dynamics is good at building some sturdy robots. Sand Flea can perform about 25 jumps per charging. At 30 feet a leap, that’s a lot of abuse, but it’s going to need to be sturdy on the battlefield. Funded in part by the Army’s Rapid Equipping Force, nine Sand Fleas are destined for testing in Afghanistan. Whether on land or in the air, robots continue to increase their numbers on the battlefield. With their load-bearing Alpha Dog and chemical suit-testing Petman, Boston Dynamics is certainly doing their part. The robotization of warfare is sure to continue, whether it be a steady march upward, or by leaps and bounds. - Singularity Hub.
