Internet Illuminati: Seven Hold Keys to the Net plus Illuminati Quizzing Society winners
It’s a story straight out of a Dan Brown novel: Seven people from across the globe have been chosen to hold the keys to the Internet. If you’re just tuning in, a security system was recently put in place to protect the Internet from terrorist or other attack. Seven people from seven countries — the U.S., UK, Burkina Faso, Trinidad and Tobago, Canada, China — were selected to hold keys to the Internet.
Well, actually, they're key fragments. When five of the seven are united (accounting for a margin of error of two due to dance recitals, root canals, after-work drinks planned with an old college friend months ago, etc.), they unlock a master key to the master phone book of the Internet, which basically is responsible for routing all Internet traffic.
It left burning questions such as, why Burkina Faso? Trinidad and Tobago — really? And, could you get a direct flight from either place to an undisclosed location in the U.S. in time to save the Internet? Furthermore, where would you keep a key to the Internet?
So we went straight to the source, Icann’s Rick Lamb, who’s heading up the Domain Name System Security Extensions program, for some answers.
Right off the bat, two things you didn’t expect: First, these key holders are volunteers. They’re not paid. They don't get body guards. They don’t even get reimbursed for air fare should they have to drop everything and run to save the Internet.
(You know what that means, right? That Kate Gosselin, the reality star famous for being the mother of eight and for having an asymmetrical haircut, is better guarded — and compensated — than the holders of the keys to the Internet.)
Second, the first rule of Internet Key Club isn’t that you don’t talk about Internet Key Club (unlike Fight Club) — it’s that you ALWAYS talk about Internet Key Club, telling the public everything from the names of the key holders to where the master keys are located. There are even maps online of the facilities that house the master keys. And, if you can stay awake, you can watch the seven-hour YouTube video of the key ceremony.

Illuminati are CBS’s quizzing society. The society draws its name from a movement started by Adam Weishaupt in 18th century. The name stands for a society of the illuminated or the intelligentsia. That is what we are all about.
Now a bit about what we do. We quiz. Quiz is not guesswork; it is much more than that. We at Illuminati take pride in doing well in quizzes because we are able to infer things better and not because we think we know more. A quiz is not a test of your memory, but your ability to infer. Quizzing is not about spending sleepless nights memorizing information. Rather good quizzing is about connecting unconnected things, and inferring the answer by trusting instincts; and all of that within a tight deadline. It is also about complementing your team mate and synchronizing your thought process to arrive at an answer. The biggest high in quizzing is winning a hard fought quiz and receiving a well deserved applause for the same.The society actively participates in Delhi’s General, Business and Corporate Quizzing circles and at the same time organizes quizzes within the college on a variety of subjects ranging from Sports, Cricket, General, Business, Brands and Marketing, and a Quizzing League covering the length of the academic year, all of it with a unified aim of cultivating a culture of quizzing.
Now a bit about what we have achieved. The society has won more competitions representing the college than all other societies put together. There’s hardly an Institute in Delhi where quizzers from Illuminati haven’t done well – From colleges in DU like NSIT, DCE, St. Stephens, Hindu, KMC, Hansraj, Ramjas, Venketeshwara, LSR etc. to premier MBA institutes like MDI, FMS(North), FMS(South) etc. However, the crown jewels for the society are the victories at AIMA National Business Quiz which was won beating the best quizzing teams from all over India and the Zonal Finals of SAIL Golden Jubilee Business and Management Quiz which was won beating teams from IIM A, FMS, IMT Ghaziabad etc. Most of these achievements have been in the sphere of Business and Corporate Quizzing, however, the society has over the years seen a number of brilliant general quizzers as well.
Recognition and a sense of accomplishment are not the only incentives. There are accompaniments which include significant amounts of cash and a lot of goodies, thereby enabling a member to self-finance the many excursions that the quintessential quizzer loves to have.
Even though she is undergoing reprogramming…I mean…in jail…Lindsay Lohan expanded her clothing line called 6126 and released promotional pictures containing revealing symbolism.
Between prison and rehab, Lindsay Lohan has been out of commission for nearly one month now and amazingly we’ve seen more work from the troubled actress in the last 30 days than we have in the last 30 weeks. Not only is she on the cover of Maxim Magazine, fronting Marc Ecko’s Cut & Sew fall/winter line campaign and starring alongside the ShamWow guy in a new movie, but LiLo’s released the big batch of images pimping her 6126 fashion line.

Manolith - Mark Lorenz - 1 day ago
The pyramids. One of the most majestic structures man has had the capacity, time, and thousands of labor-worthy to create. It’s the last wonder of the ancient world that’s still standing, holding out against the elements, marauders, and desecration by contemporary pop culture figures like Kanye West. Some people think that it’s still hiding secrets – specifically, doctors. And if anybody in this world can uncover the structural secrets of a building, it’s a team of goddamn doctors on a mission.
The Pyramid of Khufu was named after the king who built it around 2,560 BC – and for years, people have been writing scripts, imagining curses, and theorizing what secrets it contains. Was it built by aliens? Probably not. Was it the start of the Illuminati? Probably not. Are there secret doors high up inside the pyramid that researchers want to explore and open with robots?
Yes. And that’s exactly what a research team armed with funding and robots has been doing. Probing the depths of the pyramids to discover what sort of secrets are contained.
Protip: they’re all deadly. And vengeance-wrecking

The CIA's Undetectable Electric'Toxin' Dart Gun'
(Time) INTELLIGENCE: Of Dart Guns and Poisons
CIA researchers also came up with an array of James Bond weaponry that could use the shellfish toxin and other poisons as ammunition. To illustrate his testimony, Colby handed a pistol to Committee Chairman Frank Church. Resembling a Colt .45 equipped with a fat telescopic sight, the gun fires a toxin-tipped dart, almost silently and accurately up to 250 ft. Moreover, the dart is so tiny—the width of a human hair and a quarter of an inch long—as to be almost indetectable, and the poison leaves no trace in a victim's body.
Murder Instrument. Church called the pistol "a murder instrument that's about as efficient as you can get." The agency has also developed two other dart-launching pistols, as well as a fountain pen that can fire deadly darts and an automobile engine-head bolt that releases a toxic substance when heated.
(BajanRepoter) A top secret lethal weapon of the CIA is used for conducting clandestine assassinations without leaving a trace of evidence. This specially designed secret weapon is a pistol which shoots a small poison dart to cause a heart attack, as explained in Congressional testimony in a short video clip from a powerful documentary on the CIA. By educating ourselves and others on vitally important matters like this, we can build a brighter future for us all.
CIA-Top-secret-filesThe dart from this secret CIA weapon penetrates clothing and leaves nothing but a tiny red dot on the skin. On penetration of the deadly dart, the individual targeted for assassination may feel as if bitten by a mosquito, or they may not feel anything at all. The poisonous dart completely disintegrates upon entering the target.
The lethal poison then rapidly enters the bloodstream causing a heart attack. Once the damage is done, the poison denatures quickly, so that an autopsy is very unlikely to detect that the heart attack resulted from anything other than natural causes. Sounds like the perfect James Bond weapon, doesn’t it? Yet all of this is verifiable in Congressional testimony.
Watch the one-minute video at this link for the description of a former CIA secretary and Congressional testimony on this top secret weapon. To watch the revealing 45-minute documentary from which the above clip was taken, click here. In this riveting exposé, five former CIA agents describe how their initial pride and enthusiasm at serving their nation turned to anguish and remorse, as they realized that they were actually subverting democracy and killing innocent civilians all in the name “national security” and promoting foreign policy agendas.
The above-mentioned testimony is from 1975, several decades ago. With the ensuing leaps in technological capability, just imagine what kinds of secret weapons for assassination have been developed since. There is good evidence that technology has even been developed to cause strong suicidal feelings in a targeted person. For more on this, read powerful information on nonlethal weapons at this link.
Illuminated / 'Glow in the Dark' shrimp is OK says FDA
(The Register-Guard/ Washington/insidermedicine)- The FDA says that it won't investigate glow-in-the-dark shrimp being sold in some Seattle supermarkets. Several consumers alerted authorities when they noticed that packages of pre-cooked shrimp from food supplier Ocean Beauty Seafood emitted a blue glow in darkened kitchens and freezers. Scientists believe that luminescent species of bacteria found in salt water, which are not harmful to humans, are responsible.
Methane Hydrate Bubbles rising from the ocean floor solve the Devils Triangle Mystery
Terrence Aym Salem-News.com
Step aside outer space aliens, time anomalies, submerged giant Atlantean pyramids and bizarre meteorological phenomena ... the "Triangle" simply suffers from an acute case of gas.
Natural gas—the kind that heats ovens and boils water—specifically methane, is the culprit behind the mysterious disappearances and loss of water and air craft.
The evidence for this astounding new insight into a mystery that's bedeviled the world is laid out in a research paper published in the American Journal of Physics.
Professor Joseph Monaghan researched the hypothesis with honor student David May at the Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
The two hypothesized that large methane bubbles rising from the ocean floor might account for many, if not all, of the mysterious disappearances of ships and aircraft at specific locales around the world.
Researcher Ivan T. Sanderson identified these mystery areas during the 1960s. Sanderson described the actual shape of these regions as more like a lozenge rather than a triangle. Some of the more famous spots include an area in the Sea of Japan, the North Sea, and of course the infamous "Bermuda (or Devil's) Triangle."
Another Solar Blast Said Ready To Hit Earth Tuesday
EARLY PERSEID METEORS: The 2010 Perseid meteor shower is underway. "Last night I counted 28 Perseids between 1 am and 4 am--including this bright one zinging past Jupiter," says Pete Glastonbury of Devizes, Wiltshire, UK. Indeed, says Bill Cooke of the MSFC, "the meteor rate is getting so high that last night we captured two Perseid fireballs at the same time using our all-sky camera in Walker County, Georgia. The shower peaks on Thursday, Aug. 12th; these early reports are a promising sign of things to come. [live meteor radar] [2010 meteor counts] [Bill Cooke's Perseid Twitter Feed]
INCOMING CME: The solar eruption of August 7th might affect Earth after all. Newly-arriving data from the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) show a CME heading our way with a significant Earth-directed component. Click on the image to launch a "difference movie" of the expanding cloud:
The impact of this lopsided CME probably won't trigger a major geomagnetic storm---but the SOHO data show it could be bigger than expected. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras when the cloud arrives probably on August 10th.
ANTARCTIC AURORAS: The stage is set for a good display of auroras over Antarctica. The skies are already shimmering even before the CME arrives. J. Dana Hrubes sends this picture from the geographic South Pole:
Hrubes is wintering over at the Amundsen-Scott Station where he oversees operations of the South Pole Telescope (SPoT), silhouetted above by aurora australis. "After one of the windiest Julys on record, we finally got some very clear skies on August 9th," he says. "The auroras were a welcome surprise. The sun will be returning to the South Pole in a little over 6 weeks, so I'm hoping for more auroras soon."
He may get them. NOAA forecasters estimate a 30% chance of polar geomagnetic activity when the incoming CME arrives. Stay tuned for Southern Lights!

( ONE News/AAP/TZNZ)The New Zealand High Commission in Vanuatu has suffered minor damage after a magnitude 7.5 earthquake rattled the Pacific island nation tonight.
The undersea quake, 35 kilometres deep and just 46 kilometres from Port Vila, shook buildings in the capital for about 15 seconds, but did not appear to have caused significant damage.
The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre said a 23-centimetre tsunami hit Port Vila, but warned bigger waves may be seen in other areas.
Civil Defence in New Zealand says there is no real threat from the tsunami over here.
Office shelves and ceiling tiles fell down in the four-storey NZ High Commission during the quake.
TVNZ News at 8 spoke to NZ High Commissioner Jeff Langley, who said that while the quake only lasted around 30 seconds, it was violent.
"We had things coming off the walls, books and computers thrown around, ornaments flying around, that sort of thing," he said.
High Commission staffer Ben McKenzie said computers were "thrown across the office" by the jolt.

To what is linking these Global weather catastrophes we can read as reported by
“Normally the jet stream is a giant loop of high speed winds that whip round the upper atmosphere. The jet stream isn't involved in day to day weather - it's too high up - but because it pushes the atmosphere around it's very important in steering large scale weather patterns below.
To HAARP’s ability to affect our Earth’s jet streams we can further read from a report prepared in the 1990’s by the US Air Force and which, in part, states:
“HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), being constructed for the Air Force and Navy by an ARCO subsidiary, is such a project. Touted as scientific research, HAARP is a thinly disguised project to "perturb" the ionosphere with extremely powerful beams of energy to see what military uses it can serve. According to the HAARP RFP, these energy beams will be used to "control ionospheric processes in such a way as to greatly enhance the performance of C3 systems (or, to deny accessibility to an adversary)." That sounds like a weapon to this writer. Other such projects go by the code names BIME, RED AIR, CRRES, EXCEDE, CHARGE IV, WISP, ACTIVE, HIPAS, RADC, AIM, etc..
