Strange blue eyes of a chinese boy


CHINA. His name is Nong Youhui. He can see on darkness. His eyes shine in obscurity - like the eyes of a cat and emit a blue-green light when exposed to a lantern focus, for example. This uncommon anomaly - has puzzled the doctors. The child was born with blue eyes, a rare condition among chineses. Is true that there are chineses with blue eyes in Liquian, in the central region of the country. They belong to a lineage of roman descendents - according researchers of the matter. This is not the case.

His father tells that when Nong Youhui was a baby the doctors assured that the eyes will turn black like the eyes of the others chineses. However, it's not happend. The case has been studied for years without answer. The genetic hypothesis, according to the usual tests, has been discarded. Meanwhile, some people hinted that the boy may be an alien hybrid.

The secrets of ancient Amazonia

AMAZONIA. New archaeological studies about the Amazon has been changing the traditional idea of a virgin forest practically uninhabited in the pre-colombian times. Recent discoveries reveal a region that could been occupied for more than 20 millions of persons; indigenous, it is assumed. They lived in highly populated villages near of rivers Tapajos, Madeira and Solimoes, for example.

However, the scenery was much diferent of the mythological Eldorado of the legends. According the researcher of the Universidade Federal do Amazonas (Amazon Federal University), Helena Lima: What we know, today, is that these populations were numerous and they had technical practices much more advanced than the primitivism that we imagined until recently.

The coordinator of the Central Amazônia project, who works in the Museu de Arqueologia e Antropologia da USP (Archaeologic and Anthropologic Museum, São Paulo University), Eduardo Neves, belives that around 5,5 million of persons lived in certain areas of the pre colombian Amazon where there were a great variation of languages and political organizations in their many villages.

The researcher of the Anthropology Department of at the University of Florida, Michael Heckenberger, studying areas of the Alto Xingu (Upper Xingu) made an estimated that 50,000 indigenous lived in an area of ​​20 square kilometers. He says: This consists of a larger population that we find in many countries of Europe today.

According the studies, the villages of the Alto Xingu was 10 or 15 times majors than that exist actually in the region. They were organized a central and circular square surrounded by tabas (huts). These huts were builded in a perfect ring along the periphery of the square, were surrounded by ditches to 2 km in length. Heckenberger still says that in the Alto Xingu, where today there is a village, there were 12.

Professor at University of Florida, Colombian researcher Augusto Oyuela-Caycedo, adds that in other regions of the Amazon, the settings were different, with linears villages, in front of the rivers. Regarding the organization, the communities were not exactly as tribes. They were more like societies in its infancy. Archaeological evidence indicates a state of expansion.

Handling of soil

One of the proofs of the existence of these bigger villages and their development on the first steps of a civilization process is the black soil. Oyuela explains: For many years it was thought that the black soil was the result of natural phenomena such as volcanic ash. The resistance to the idea that the black earth was resulted by human work came from a theory that the Amazon was largely an inhospitable place to the development of complex societies with large villages.

But the new discoveries have shown that there was the use of organic matter and coal burned at high temperatures to improve the quality of the Amazonian soil. The plantations were made in small amounts of land - spaces that were opened in the middle by large tracts of forests. Oyuela found black soil in the Alto Amazon (Upper Amazon), in 2005, near the city of Iquitos. The region, called Quistococha was a large village which occupied up to 20 hectares dated around the years 900 AD.

In regions such as the high river Madeira is found black soil dated from four thousand years. In the middle Amazon River were found pottery and evidence of agricultural occupations with over two thousand years and traces of nomadic culture of eight thousand years ago.

Italy: Chemical snow is terrorizing citizens


ITALY. Snow without clouds. Chemical snow! This strange phenomenon that has occupied in headlines of italian newspapers is terrorizing citizens of Piedmont and Lombardy. How ever, when nothing more can to be done, authorities say that there isn't motive for panic and and the situation is under control. Experts explain: the phenomenon observed in the last days (in january, 2012) is due to the arrival of cold air masses from the Arctic that reach the Pó Valey (river Pó), one of the most polluted regions of the world.

Some other scientists agree that the chemical snow isn't prejudicial for humans, animals or enviroment but, at the same time, warn thatpersons should not to ingest the substance, a greater risk to children that play on the streets and are handling this snow inadvertently. They add: the persons should avoid the contact the snow in parts of the body such as eyes and mouth. (After this warning, I would avoid to put nose out of the home).

This type of phenomenon is a combination of the fog (water vapor condensed) in cold temperatures, negative temperatures - mixed with polluted dust and other industrial waste in the atmosphere what are common in urban centers (very polluted sites) as in northern Italy. This snow, that is not really a snow - has been covering the landscape of the region. One more time, it's hour of return to read the books of the ancient prophets. Us meditate...
