MH370 BOMBSHELL: How aviation expert questioned whether satellite data was TAMPERED with

MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. The official investigation into the case concluded that the aircraft must have crashed into the southern Indian Ocean, but this theory was entirely reliant on a set of satellite data. The data came from satellite 3F1, which belongs to British satellite telecommunications company Inmarsat.

In his 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’, Jeff Wise explained that as the narrative for the investigation’s theory hangs entirely on seven communications between MH370 and 3F1, called ‘handshakes’, these deserve close examination.

There are two main ways in which these data could have been tampered with.

Mr Wise said: “To begin with, there is the issue of providence.

“Do we know that the data that Malaysia released is the same as the data that Inmarsat recievd from MH370 via 3F1 on the night of March 7 and 8.

“Personally I believe we do. One can imagine officials conspiring to tamper with the data, but at least on my own interactions with the official investigation I believe in the integrity of Inmarsat and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).

“What’s more, I don’t think they would have any motive for altering the data.”

However, he then goes on to question whether the data was altered before it was received by Inmarsat.

Mr Wise explained that the assumption so far had been that the data – Burst Timing Offset (BTO) and Burst Frequency Offset (BFO) – were generated as part of the normal function of the communication systems.

Whilst there are no known “natural process” that would change this data, this does not rule out human interference.

He said: “The question then is whether human being deliberately tweaked the electronics so that the handshake signals would generate deceptive BFO and/or BTO data when they were received on the ground.

“In other words, could the Inmarsat data have been spoofed to throw investigators off the trail?”

Mr Wise admitted that at first the idea seemed “ridiculous”, pointing out that any hijacker attempting this must posses “diabolical cleverness”.

This is because the mathematical technique used to track the plane using these data was only invented after MH370 disappeared.

Anyone working to combat this before March 8, 2014, would have had to figure out the technique themselves, implement it and then count on it being discovered by others later.

On the other hand, it wasn’t inconceivable and even Inmarsat’s own engineers were not sure their data was accurate.

Inmarsat engineer Alan Schuster Bruce told the BBC at the time: “One of the concerns we had was the fact that this could all be a big hoax that someone had played on Inmarsat.”

End of the world: Artificial intelligence to pave way for ANTICHRIST – shock claim

The shock claim comes after a recent survey found that a quarter of Europeans would welcome an AI leader to replace politicians who, according to respondents of the survey, are doing a bad job. Certain Christians have taken this as a sign that the end of the world is near, and believe the Antichrist will masquerade as artificial intelligence. The conspiracy theorists point to a passage in the Bible which suggests the Antichrist will rule the world in a form which humans trust.

Revelation 13:14-15 reads: “Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth.

“It ordered them to set up an image in honour of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived.

“The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed.”

In this instance, Christian conspiracy theorist blog Signposts of the Times believes the ‘second beast’ is AI, who will pave the way for the Antichrist to rule Earth.

This will ultimately conclude in the end of the world, it has been claimed.

The blog states: “We see that the world system is fast shutting down any and all viewpoints that do not kowtow to the progressive left group think which wants to move the world into the collective global governance system.

“The world is becoming more and more depraved in its thinking as what was good is now considered bad and what was once considered evil is now good and acceptable and even promulgated by our political leaders.

“The Apostle Paul warned that the Last Days would be one of perilous times when the world would become ever more depraved in its thinking and actions.

“The old expression, ‘May you live in interesting times’ has never been more applicable to a period of time.

“We keep warning that now is the day of salvation, (not tomorrow), and that we should all be looking up as our redemption is drawing ever more closer by the day.”

‘It’s a SIGN!’ Shock as crucified Jesus Christ appears IN THE CLOUDS’

A break in the clouds allowed the sunlight to seep through in the form of a crucifix. The mesmerising beam of light shines down on Earth, looking eerily similar to the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil. Italian artist Alfredo Lo Brutto snapped a picture of the stunning shot in which it looks like a man’s arms are stretched across the sky.

Many have likened the image to Christ being crucified and claim it could indeed be a sign from God.

Mr Lo Brutto quickly shared the image on Facebook, where it has since gone viral.

The Facebook post read: “I was enchanted by the view. I don’t often share pictures on social media, but when I took this one, I instantly felt like I wanted other people to see, because it was so beautiful.”

One person commented on the image: “It really looks like Jesus, the head, the arms, congratulations” while another described it as a “unique and sensational shot.”

Italian website Info Cilento said: “A luminous figure that seems human, the classic blessing Christ that we see in many depictions.

“A shape so resembling that it seems real and that is attracting the attention of many people.”

Prominent conspiracy theorist Scott C Waring goes even further, believing it is a sign from God.

Mr Waring wrote: “It seems to show Jesus in a rob with a crown of thorns. I do believe in signs and believe this has some real purpose for being there.”

Just last year, Catholics in the Philippines also saw what they believed was an apparition of Christ on Easter Sunday.

Shortly after sun rise, rays of light could be seen beaming through the dark clouds – forming an unmistakable glow reminiscent of Christ Himself.

He appears to be looking down on followers – and the outline of His thorny crown is even visible in the sky.

The woman who took the picture on her phone said “God is watching us” and swore that the images were not edited.

Leona Tomolin said: “This was Jesus appearing yesterday. He was showing Himself to the congregation of Catholics.”

10 different but equally enjoyable kinds of masturbation sessions

Image: Carol Yepes/getty images

May is National Masturbation Month, and we’re celebrating with Feeling Yourself, a series exploring the finer points of self-pleasure.

Masturbating, like ice cream, comes in many different flavors. 

Since getting off doesn’t require another person, the possibilities of where, when, and how you do it are seemingly endless. Sometimes it’s an unexpected endeavor and other times it’s a planned event. 

The good thing is is that you get to be in control of your own nut, and — with a few exceptions like work and social acceptance — you can get it whenever you want. Even if you have a partner, sometimes it’s just better to take matters into your own hand. 

Without further adieu, here are some various forms of masturbation:

1. Boredom

Sometimes, Netflix gets stale and all that’s left to do is chill. And by chill I mean masturbate. On those occasions when the Instagram Explore page is no longer worth scrolling, explore yourself instead. 

Turn your phone off and get off.

Turn your phone off and get off.

2. Unexpected moment of horniness 

This is the kind of masturbation that happens on a whim. One moment you’re watching Killing Eve, and the next you’re humping the couch. Nothing in particular spurs the sudden moment of horniness, but once it’s arisen, it’s got to be dealt with. 

Well, I  guess it's time.

Well, I  guess it’s time.

3. While your roommates aren’t home 

Perhaps one of the best atmospheres for fondling oneself is in an empty apartment or house. You can be as loud and unabashed as you want. 

Ah yes, the perfect opportunity  to , uh, juggle your fruit

4. While your roommates are home

Having roommates is a total ball buster when you’re trying to bust your balls. They don’t need to stop you from pleasuring yourself, though. Just tell them you’re taking a nap. Or use the old sock-on-the-doorknob trick. Getting your nut while the roomies are in the next room can be stressful, but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible. 

Get out! Leave! Right now!

5. Anxiety

According to Planned Parenthood, masturbating can be a huge stress reliever. While it might be difficult to get in the mood while you’re having a panic attack, it may help extinguish said panic. Big test? Masturbate! Job interview? Masturbate! 

No idea what she's doing under the table but it definitely feels anxious.

6. High

With the rise of legal weed, it’s no surprise that many indulge in masturbating while stoned. According to Vice, there’s strong evidence that cannabis does indeed make for a more powerful orgasm. So puff, puff, pass-turbate.

7. Mutual  

If your partner is down, masturbating mutually can be an exciting experience. It gives both parties a chance to show off how they tickle their pickles. Plus, it could bring you and your partner closer— literally. Like the Beatles once said: “Come together, right now!” 

It takes two!

It takes two!

8. Bedtime 

Why settle for a glass of warm milk when you could just get off instead? Nothing inspires a night of delicious dreaming like an orgasm before dozing off.

9. First thing in the morning 

Masturbating first thing in the morning can be choice, especially after having a particularly spicy dream. 

It's time! To masturbate.

10. In the shower 

Given the wet and private nature of showers, they’re a reliable spot for masturbating. And you don’t need to worry about clogging your pipes with semen. That, my friends, is just a college campus-birthed myth.  Also, soap is NOT a lube. 

Kill two birds with one shower.

So, what’re you waiting for? Turn yourself on and get yourself off. Give yourself a hand. You deserve it.

MH370 SHOCK CLAIM: ‘New credible evidence’ missing plane was ‘strategically crashed’

MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing and the 239 people on board were never seen again. Andre Milne of Unicorn Aerospace has claimed he has information disclosed to him about the location of of the plane. He even believes that it could be the “new credible evidence” required by the authorities to restart their search for the aircraft.

Malaysian Transport Minister Anthony Loke Siew Fook said in November last year they would be open to resuming the search for MH370 if such evidence was discovered.

Addressing the Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad in an email, he asserted that both he and another volunteer investigator, Daniel Boyer, had information to provide.

Mr Milne’s theory is that MH370 landed at a secret airport in Cambodia after disappearing from radar.

He claimed: “Both Mr Boyer and myself received separate raw intelligence disclosures that identified how MH370 took off shortly after landing to then be strategically crashed at a concealed location away from the secret airport.

READ MORE: MH370 BOMBSHELL: Debris found on Australian coastline ‘DISMISSED’

“This now brings the cumulative number of hard points of discovery intersection well past the threshold of what constitutes the new credible evidence you require to re-launch the search for MH370.”

In the email he included images he claimed back up his story and even gave the coordinates of where he believes the plane may be found.

He claims these are the “exact coordinates as to the location of the secret airport as made in a vague and unspecified claim by Jeffrey Wise”.

Jeff Wise is an aviation expert and author of the 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There”.

He speculated in his book whether the plane may have landed and then taken off again.

He pointed out that the plane went “dark” for one hour and 13 minutes and it is unknown what it did in this time immediately after its disappearance.

Mr Wise said: “The big unknown was what happened between 6.39pm when the satcom was turned on and 7.41pm.

“Had the plane made a single turn or flown around in circles, or perhaps even landed somewhere and taken off again?”

This period of time is key, because it determined which direction the plane started flying in and from where.

If the plane did indeed land and take off again, this could have been in Malaysia or in a nearby country such as Cambodia.

Cambodia has plenty of remote jungle areas, so it is possible for a plane to land unnoticed.

Earthquake TODAY: Major tremor forecast in shock claim ‘BE ON WATCH’

An earthquake conspiracy theorist claims an alignment of planets being dubbed “critical geometry” will cause a major tremor today. This is apparently because Mars, Jupiter and Neptune are all positioned in a way that they can tug on Earth’s tectonic plates. The ensuing tug-of-war in our solar system will cause tension to build in the tectonic plates of our planet, which could be released in the form of a huge tremor, according to a bold claim made by a ‘new-age earthquake forecaster.

Dutch researcher Frank Hoogerbeets made the bizarre prediction, claiming it could be as strong as a magnitude seven tremor.

Mr Hoogerbeets wrote on his website Ditrianum: “Critical lunar geometry involving Mars, Jupiter and Neptune may trigger larger seismic activity, possibly 7 magnitude around May 14. Be on watch, just in case.”

A magnitude seven earthquake is categorised as being “major” and has the potential to cause “serious damage”, according to Richter scale listings.

Mr Hoogerbeets reached his conclusion using his Solar System Geometry Index (SSGI) which “is the computation of a dataset for a specific time-frame of values given to specific geometric positions of the planets, the Moon and the Sun”.

He said: “After three years of observations, it became clear that some planetary geometry in the Solar System clearly tends to cause a seismic increase, while other geometry does not.”

But experts have previously dismissed Mr Hoogerbeets’ claims, saying that there is no way earthquakes can be predicted.

John Bellini, a geophysicist at the US Geological Survey (USGS) has said: “We can’t predict or forecast earthquakes.

“Sometimes before a large earthquake you’ll have a foreshock or two, but we don’t know they’re foreshocks until the big one happens.”

The USGS completely denies that earthquakes can be forecasted, writing on its website: “Neither the USGS nor any other scientists have ever predicted a major earthquake.

“We do not know how, and we do not expect to know how any time in the foreseeable future.”

Holy Crap: Snake Leaps From Porch Light, Bites Man In The Face As He Opens Door

The simple act of opening a door turned into a terrifying moment for a man in Oklahoma when a snake leaped from a porch light and bit him in the face. And the entire scene was caught on a doorbell camera video.

Footage showed Jerel Heywood leave his car outside the house of his friend, Rodney Copeland, in Lawton, Oklahoma, on Sunday. When Heywood opened the door, the snake attacked.

Heywood could be heard calling out for his friend to take him to the hospital, where the medical staff later determined that the snake was not venomous. 

“No stitches, thankfully, but they cleaned me up pretty good,” Heywood told CNN. “I am on antibiotics.”

The snake, however, was killed on the spot by a neighbor with a hammer, the network said. 

9 of the best online fitness apps and digital coaches

Get into great shape wherever you are with these apps and websites.

Best for weight loss


Primarily for weight loss and diet, you’ll get a ton of support from your coach and the WW community.

Trying to find a personal trainer IRL can pose a lot of potential problems.

They include, but aren’t limited to: Mismatched schedules, personalities that don’t sync up, high costs, and the somewhat awkward experience of working out in public with someone focusing all of their attention on you. It’s almost enough to make you want to give up on working out altogether.

And that is precisely why people turn to things like online fitness coaching or online yoga classes.

As its name suggests, online fitness coaching programs are done almost entirely online or through an app on your phone — and oftentimes both options are available.

Online training is great because you can work out and train whenever you want and you’ll never have to worry about meeting a trainer at a time that’s inconvenient for you. 

Plus, you’re often able to gauge your progress with the help of fitness trackers typically built into online training programs. By tracking your gradual progress, you can see what is and isn’t working for you, and seeing the hurdles you’ve overcome can serve as a valuable motivator as you continue to get fitter.

There are also so many amazing personal trainers across the country that you might not have met if it weren’t for online coaching services. These personal trainers can help you establish long-term fitness goals and create a personalized fitness regimen based on those goals.

Unlike any typical weight loss program you might sign up for, online fitness coaches aren’t just concerned with weight loss — although they can definitely help you focus on that if it’s your goal. Online fitness coaches show you how to improve the overall health of your body, give you guidance and support you may not have realized you needed previously, and keep you accountable when it comes to reaching your goals. 

Sadly, you won’t be able to lean on any pre-made meals to help you attain your health and fitness goals, but with the right personal trainer you may not feel you need to.

MH370 crash site: How ‘HYPER-REALISTIC’ flight simulator was used to help find doomed jet

MH370 went missing on March 8, 2014, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. A group of investigators called The Independent Group (IG) pinned down their search area to a patch in the south Indian Ocean, helped by the technology. According to 2015 book ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’, Mike Exner – a member of the group – secured himself four hours on the high tech system in November 2014.

The group’s theory at the time was that the plane had run out of fuel, fell into a spiral dive and crashed into the sea.

Every time Mr Exner simulated the flight path of the plane under the assumption it had run out of fuel, MH370 would do the same thing – cementing the belief in their logic.

Aviation expert and author of ‘The Plane That Wasn’t There’ Jeff Wise said: “In early November, Mike Exner had managed to cage four hours in a top-of-the-line hyper-realistic flight simulator that one of the US Navy carriers used to train its pilots.

“Time and again he allowed the plane to run out of fuel and watched what happened.

READ MORE: Why expert claimed first-class passenger HIJACKED MH370

“Each time, the plane fell into a deep spiral dive and impacted the surface within a few miles.”

Despite the certainty that this experience gave Mr Exner and the IG, their search area came up with nothing.

The Fugro Discovery began searching the seabed using side scan sonar in October 2014.

By the end of November, it had searched the area of interest to a width of several miles and still found nothing.

According to Mr Wise, this is when “self-doubt crept in” and there were mutterings that they may have made a calculation error.

On December 1, 2014, another IG member Victor Iannello admitted it was possible the group had made a “fundamental error”.

He commented: “As time goes on with no debris found, the probability of the end point in the current search zone decreases.”

He added: “With no debris found, we have to be open to the possibility of a fundamental error in our models and consider all options.”
