5 Real-Life ‘Stranger Things’-Montauk, Long Island Parallels

first_img3. LIZARD HUMANOIDS & THE INTERDIMENSIONAL WILDEBEESTThe Montauk base’s underground tunnel complex has long been rumored to be the homestead of half-reptile creatures, known as “Reptoids,” and the eternal prison of an interdimensional creature who is believed to have led to the destructive demise of the experimentations. There were many top-secret projects and unsanctioned experiments rumored to be taking place within the Montauk compound, including psychokinetic torture and collaboration with extraterrestrials. While Stranger Things’ faceless flesh-feasting “Upside Down” realm creature is not an exact doppelganger of these cold-blooded tunnel dwellers, nor is the havoc-wreaking beast, the show’s bloodthirsty bastard does share at least one similarity with Montauk’s resident scaly beings and dimension-hopping beast: All are absolutely terrifying.Aerial view of Brookhaven National Laboratory taken in 2011.

MONTAUK, NYStranger Things’ original title was Montauk, named after the sleepy fishing village on Long Island’s easternmost tip. Among so many tales, local lore tells of young boys being abducted and forced to participate in an assortment of psychological and paranormal experiments on a nearby secret military base, including time travel, telekinesis, teleportation and mind-control (the 1992 book The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time documents some of these studies, as does its independent film adaptation, 2014’s Montauk Chronicles). Stranger Things is set in the small, fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, and the plot surrounds the mysterious disappearance of a 12-year-old local boy named Will Byers.Camp Hero in Montauk, NY, is strewn with blockaded airplane hangars and artillery bunkers closed to the public.

BNL’S RELATIVISTIC HEAVY ION COLLIDERJust one of BNL’s many groundbreaking, world-renowned gems, its Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) is the stuff of dreams and legends, combined. Featuring a 2.4-mile, two-lane “racetrack” that collides beams of ions at the speed of light, it quite literally straddles the very fabric between everything we as an “intelligent” species understand about this realm, and what we simply cannot comprehend. It holds the key with the potential to unlock countless doors to other dimensions, solving so many mysteries, explaining so many enigmas—the origins of this universe, life, the unseen forces that hold us and bind us and everything else in this existence together, as well as the impossible forces and laws that can tear it all apart. Physicists from around the world flock to BNL to study, in the words of BNL’s official introduction for the RHIC: “What the universe may have looked like in the first few moments after its creation.” The RHIC is the first machine in the world capable of colliding ions as heavy as gold. It is the world’s only machine capable of colliding beams of polarized protons, unraveling the secrets of dark matter, quark-gluon plasma, and replicating the primordial cosmos existing in the first billionths of a second after the birth of our universe.The Solenoidal Tracker at RHIC (STAR) is a detector specializing in tracking the thousands of particles produced by each ion collision at RHIC. Weighing 1,200 tons and as large as a house, STAR is a massive detector. It is used to search for signatures of the form of matter that RHIC was designed to create: the quark-gluon plasma. It is also used to investigate the behavior of matter at high energy densities by making measurements over a large area. (Photo Credit: Brookhaven National Laboratory)Yes, RHIC is very much a doorway, to enlightenment, and some fear, other dimensions and universes. These concerns were taken so seriously, in fact, that in 1999, prior to the RHIC going operational in 2000, the laboratory’s director John Marburger convened a committee of renowned physicists to address several of its apocalyptic ramifications: 1) “Creation of a black hole that would ‘eat’ ordinary matter, essentially gobbling up the Earth;” 2) “Initiation of a transition to a new, more stable universe;” and 3) “Formation of a ‘strangelet’ that would convert ordinary matter to a new form.” The aptly named latter item is a hypothetical, thermodynamic, cosmological doomsday particle that would “suck up all matter on Earth, ending life on the planet,” as one Harvard University theoretical physics PhD candidate explained in a paper tackling the topic. Marburger’s committee ultimately green-lighted its operation, anyway, ultimately concluding: “That the candidate mechanisms for catastrophe scenarios at RHIC are firmly excluded by existing empirical evidence, compelling theoretical arguments, or both. Accordingly, we see no reason to delay the commissioning of RHIC on their account.”And to think it’s on Long Island.Stranger Things, indeed.Stay tuned, dear friends. Stay tuned.[Main Photo: Stranger Things’ fictional town Hawkins, Indiana and its paranormal and psychokinetic scenarios share striking similarities to local lore surrounding Camp Hero (L) in Montauk, NY and Brookhaven National Laboratory (R) in Upton, NY, both on Long Island, NY.

Yet how many fans know about its real-life parallels? The mysterious government laboratory, the secret military base, and the extraordinarily mind-blowing experiments that, some contend, continue to this very day!?E.T. the Extraterrestrial, The Goonies, Poltergeist, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, The Twilight Zone, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, X-Files, Fringe—Stranger Things draws from so many cult favorites it’s a veritable sci-fi smorgasbord and an absolute masterpiece. Its greatest muse, however, may in fact be Long Island, New York, situated on ancient ancestral Native American lands and a paranormal epicenter—home to countless historical sites, haunted places, unexplained events and puzzling phenomena.The fictional scenarios portrayed in Stranger Things’ Hawkins, Indiana share several chilling parallels with real-life Long Island, and as someone who has been known to dabble a wee bit in this fringe area, I say with sincerity that the latter is a hell of a lot stranger than even Stranger Things depicts. Consider this article a wake-up call.Update: Netflix Stranger Things Season Two Returning 2017Here are 5 real-life Stranger Things-Montauk, Long Island parallels:The monstrous radar tower at Montauk Air Force Station aka Camp Hero, in Montauk, NY. (Wikimedia Commons)center_img 2. CAMP HEROThe site of Montauk’s very real covert military installation, known since the 1940s as Fort Hero, aka Montauk Air Force Base, aka “Camp Hero,” dates as far back as the Revolutionary War. During World War II and the Cold War, it served as a strategic coastal defensive site to thwart potential attacks or an invasion of New York City by sea, and was intentionally disguised as an actual fishing village to conceal its fortifications from German U-boats and enemy ships. Its 754-acre grounds were designated a state park and opened to the public in 2002, though many parts of the compound remain off-limits to this day. The base features an elaborate network of subterranean tunnels and is strewn with airplane hangars and artillery bunkers built into the side of bluffs that are sealed off by concrete barricades. Most recognizable is its monstrous radar tower, visible from the surrounding area, as well as from the nearby Montauk lighthouse. Stranger Things’ mysterious, U.S. Department of Energy-backed Hawkins National Laboratory, the site of bizarre scientific experiments using human subjects—where 11 are held captive and forced to spy on the Russians, among many other projects—shares eerie similarities to Camp Hero, as well as the U.S. Department of Energy’s very real Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), located about 60 miles west of the Montauk base. (More on BNL to come.)Stranger Things’ faceless “Upside Down” creature may bear some similarities to the reptile-humanoid creatures rumored to be roaming around the subterranean tunnels of Camp Hero in Montauk, NY, but as for any resemblance to the so-called “Montauk Monster” that allegedly washed ashore on Long Island a few years back, not so much.RELATED: Long Island Haunts: 13 Creepiest Haunted Places on Long Island 4. BROOKHAVEN NATIONAL LABBrookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY, might as well just be renamed “Hawkins Lab” in the show’s wake, since they share that many characteristics. They’re both owned by the U.S. Department of Energy. They’re both steeped in mystery. They’re both off-limits to the public and well-protected against trespassers (true for the Camp Hero site as well, prior to its re-designation as a state park; more on that in another post). They both feature mind-blowing facilities and equipment that are literally rewriting everything the scientific community understands about cosmic matter, the creation of this universe, nano-particles, time, space and so much more we can only begin to comprehend it all. Most importantly for our purpose here, both Hawkins Lab and BNL are home to an interdimensional portal-vortex, or as the Stranger Things crew refers to it, a “gate.” Yes, you’ve read that correctly.The PHENIX detector at Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) records many different particles emerging from sub-atomic collisions, including photons, electrons, muons, and quark-containing particles called hadrons. The detector is shown here in a disassembled condition during routine maintenance.

Navy Water Sports Competition Begins in Lagos

first_imgBy Chiemelie EzeobiThe Nigerian Navy (NN), weekend said  its commitment to enhance the growth of water sports and other calibre of sporting exercises in the country was in top gear, even as it’s water sports competition kicks off today.The Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Ibok Ette-Ibas, made this disclosure at a press briefing to kick off the annual 11th Nigerian Navy Games, of which the first arm the water sports competition will kick off first.The CNS, who was represented by the Chief of Administration, Rear Admiral Henry Babalola, said the main games would hold from February 26, to March 11, 2017 in Uyo, while the water events of the competition would hold from February 6, to February 11, in Lagos.Babalola, who is also the Chairman, Orgnising Committee for the Games, said that four water sports — swimming, rowing, sailing and boat-handling would be featured.He said the swimming event would hold at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, while the other water events will take place at the Navy Sailing Club, Navy Town, Ojo.He said, “We can’t mention the navy without talking about water. This is because most of our activities revolve around the water and this is why the navy is passionate about water sports.“We decided to bring the water events to Lagos because of the available resources in the state and boat-handling will be part of the events for the first time as a demonstration sport.“We have a robust relationship with the Nigeria Rowing, Sailing and Canoe Federation to move water sports forward.  We Know the games will help to promote the swimming spirit among our personnel.“Also, the games which are aimed at consolidating on the physical and mental fitness of naval personnel, has also helped in identifying talents in various sports in the country since its inception.“This is because the military over the years had been in the forefront of sports development, as notable military men had done the nation proud in the international sports arena.“Be it navy, army or the air force, these military bodies have contributed immensely to the growth of sports. Already, the navy is building a massive sports complex at Navy Town, Ojo, Lagos to aid sports development.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

That’s what he said: 10 best NFL quotes from Week 4

first_imgFrom postgame press conferences to next-day media availabilities, here are the 10 best Week 4 quotes from players and coaches around the NFL:— Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice on Cardinals veteran Larry Fitzgerald potentially passing his all-time record of 1,549 career catches: “I told him, Larry, if you break one of my records, I’ve still got 36 more.” — Steelers receiver Donte Moncrief remains in a limited role after dropping five passes through the first two weeks, but coach Mike Tomlin could change that soon: “I like his attitude and work,” Tomlin said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “You don’t have to be in this a long time to realize the boomerang comes back around. He needs to be ready for it when it does.”— During his weekly segment on WEEI, Tom Brady urged quarterbacks to be more careful when they run the ball: “A lot of quarterbacks who do run, they’re trying to make yards and it’s great. At the same time, you’re susceptible to big hits.”— Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert would rather not block every down: “If I had a choice, I’d run routes every single play.”— Texans coach Bill O’Brien on scoring seven points on five red zone drives against the Panthers: “We should have more. We should be down there more and we need to produce more.” NFL news and notes: Roquan Smith still away from Bears; Khalil Mack not sweating Raiders reunion — Turns out Jaguars rookie Gardner Minshew goes by something else in the locker room: “His name is ‘Jock Strap King,'” Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette said after Sunday’s game. “He’s stronger than you think. I don’t know if the mustache gives him power or what.”— Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd didn’t sugarcoat Cincinnati’s blowout loss at Pittsburgh in prime time: “We got embarrassed,” he told reporters after the game, per ESPN. “Straight like that. It sucks.” Related News — Browns coach Freddie Kitchens is still unhappy with Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey for allegedly choking Odell Beckham Jr.: “Did you see the video?” Kitchens asked reporters. “OK. That’s my response. We’re moving on to San Francisco. Everybody saw the video.”— Bears linebacker Khalil Mack isn’t bitter about facing his former team for the first time since being traded: “It’s another game, man,” he said, per ESPN. “It’s going to be a fun one because I know a few of the guys out there. But it’s going to be a good one. Can’t wait.”— Bradley Chubb’s torn ACL isn’t the first major injury the Broncos defensive end has suffered: “In high school. It was actually crazy. Seven years to that exact date I tore my ACL, on the same day, September 29, 2012, and then September 29, 2019. It’s crazy how that works. That was my first injury. Like I said, it made me who I am today.”last_img read more

Canada, asylum and the sprinkler salesman

first_imgSimon BarberCanada is a very large place, seriously in the market for more people. It was not, however, aching for the company of Brandon Carl Huntley, 31, late of Mowbray, a Cape Town suburb. He was in the country illegally. His resume, according to newspaper accounts, included stints as a carnival worker and as a garden sprinkler salesman, positions Canada is manifestly able to fill from its current reserves of human capital and which would not classify his departure from South Africa as contributing greatly to any brain drain.So Huntley had to find some other means of persuading the Big Empty to have him. He chose to seek asylum, claiming he had been persecuted by muggers back home because he was white and the local police had done nothing to protect him. Among the logical holes in his story was his admission that he had never reported being mugged to the police. He said did not trust them to act. Evidence of their inaction was therefore lacking.Assuming, in the absence of police reports, he truly was attacked “six or seven” times – he had scars purporting to show it – he was also hard put to prove that the alleged attacks were racially motivated. We have only his word for it that the attackers used racial epithets if and when they set upon him. And even if they did use such language, that is hardly probative of his colour having been the decisive factor in their choice of target.Canadian headline writers often play on the title of their national anthem, O Canada, when their countrymen do something particularly embarrassing. The ruling by William Davis, sole member of the immigration tribunal that heard Huntley’s case, surely qualifies for the “Oh, Canada!” treatment. In granting Huntley refugee status, Davis agreed that the applicant would “stand out like a sore thumb in any part of South Africa”. The “evidence” showed “a picture of indifference and inability or unwillingness by the government and security forces to protect white South Africans from persecution by African South Africans”.This is ignorant on so many levels. Merely to have visited South Africa is to know that black people do not persecute white people there. It runs counter to everything that makes South Africa special to all of us who love it. Yes, crime is a serious problem. Dealing with it is in the top tier of the government’s agenda. By a huge margin, the majority of victims is black.A final verdict on Davis’s ruling must await the release of the full text. At this writing, we only have the bits Huntley’s lawyer, Russell Kaplan, a South African expat who has been living in Canada for 20 years, shared with the media. Still, it is hard to avoid the conclusion that this was a most peculiar proceeding. Davis relied in good measure on horror stories told by Kaplan’s sister Laura, herself a recent immigrant. Well, there can’t have been an ounce of bias there, can there?The case might well have passed unnoticed had not Kaplan, or his client, decided to let the world know about it. Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board, home of the tribunal that heard the matter, renders more than 40 000 decisions are year. The proceeding was closed to the public. There is as yet no mention of it on the board’s website, no press release was issued and IRB officials have studiously declined comment citing privacy concerns.Some if not all tribunal decisions are eventually published on the internet. Three of Davis’ rulings from 2007 can be found there. In one, he granted asylum to a former member of the Peruvian armed forces who feared reprisals for atrocities that occurred while he was on active service against the Shining Path in the 1980s.Two other applications Davis rejected. One was from an Albanian who claimed his wife’s brothers were out to kill him after he was photographed having gay sex. Davis was not convinced he faced persecution. The man merely “came to Canada to find a better life”. The second was from an Afghan who said the Taliban were after him. Davis found the timing of this application suspect. “The claimant made his refugee claim on the very same day his status in Canada expired.” And yet Huntley’s claim, made long after his visa expired, was somehow not so suspect.You have to know what you are looking for to find these cases. Kaplan and his client might have done themselves a favour by simply shutting up, but no, they wanted their 15 minutes of fame. Huntley would not have been missed in South Africa which, like Canada, faces no shortage of carnival workers or sprinkler salesmen. South Africa would not have had to publicly respond to the shameful distortions contained in Davis’s decision. As it is, the Canadian government may well decide to reverse the decision and Huntley will be back to square one.This is not, incidentally, the first case of its kind. In 1997, a Durban couple, Michelle and David Thomas, came to California with their two children on visitors visas. A year later they petitioned for asylum. They said they had endured and would continue to face reprisals because David’s father, “Boss Ronnie”, was a racist thug who threatened and abused his black workers back in South Africa. Their case made it all the way to the Supreme Court which finally upheld its initial rejection by an immigration judge. At least they had the good grace not to claim they were the victims of anybody’s racism other than Dad’s.Simon Barber joined the International Marketing Council as US country manager in 2002. He was for many years the Washington correspondent for Business Day and the Sunday Times. He arrived in South Africa 30 years ago last September armed with little more than a degree in classics. He was sent to cover the Biko inquest and has been involved with South Africa, one way or another, ever since.last_img read more

Indonesian investigators say doomed Lion Air jet airworthy

first_imgJAKARTA, Indonesia — Investigators of the Oct. 28 crash of a Lion Air flight into the Java Sea say the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft was deemed airworthy when it made its final takeoff from Jakarta.The officials summoned reporters Thursday to refute reports on a news conference the day before where some media reported they had said the plane was not airworthy when it took off.The investigators were reporting on data from the aircraft’s black boxes. They say the cockpit voice recorder, which is still missing and being searched for, is needed to understand what caused the jet to plunge in the Java Sea just 11 minutes after takeoff.Investigator Nurcahyo Utomo said that based on test results after the aircraft’s problems were repaired the aircraft was declared airworthy.The Associated Presslast_img read more

JNU sedition Delhi govt seeks months time to grant sanction to prosecute

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi government on Wednesday sought before a court here a month’s time to decide whether to grant sanction to prosecute former JNU students’ union president Kanhaiya Kumar and others in the 2016 JNU sedition case. Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Deepak Sherawat directed the AAP government to file a “proper reply”, citing a definite time-frame. DCP of Special Cell of Delhi Police, Pramod Kushwaha, had earlier told the court that the agency has already sent a request to the Delhi government seeking sanction and added that sanction was an administrative action and the charge sheet can be filed without that. The Delhi Police had earlier told the court that authorities were yet to give requisite sanctions to prosecute Kumar and others in the case, and it would take two to three months to procure sanctions. On January 14, police had filed a charge sheet in the court against Kumar and others, saying he was leading a procession and supported seditious slogans raised in the JNU campus during an event on February 9, 2016.last_img read more
