New Video Shows UFO Trailing Behind Comet ISON

 

Very interesting new images of Comet ISON which seem to indicate an object within its coma.  The Russians have recently reported that Comet ISON is moving as if it were an intelligently controlled spacecraft.

      ASUS' ROG brand introduces the Mothership, a Surface for gamers
      by João Carrasqueira

      CES 2019 is home to many announcements from a wide range of companies, but not many are quite as unique as ASUS' latest product in the Republic of Gamers brand. The Mothership GZ700 is the company's vision for the future of desktop-replacement gaming laptops, featuring a raised display and a design that's very reminiscent of Microsoft's Surface line on 2-in-1s.

      The Mothership is a pretty impressive device all around, starting with a Full HD 17.3-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, and support for Nvidia G-Sync and Optimus technologies. The panel sits above the speakers, and all of the laptop's main components are hidden behind the display, which sits on its own thanks to the included kickstand.

      This elevated design also allows the laptop to be cooled more efficiently, as fans are raised from the surface and have more space to draw air in. This also allows the computer to be fairly thin, at 29.9mm. There are two cooling fans on the laptop, which expel air from the upper portion of the device, keeping it cool where your hands sit. There's also a heat shield to protect the display from the temperatures of the internals.

      The keyboard, which is also somewhat reminiscent of the Surface Type Cover, can be connected to the base of the display, and it's pushed down to the base of the cover so the keys are in reach and don't sit too high on the panel. However, you can also detach the keyboard and use it wirelessly, folding the empty space of the keyboard cover under the keys for extra height. The keys have 2.5mm of travel distance and include ASUS' Overstroke technology, and, of course, they're individually lit and customizable to your liking.

      ASUS also boasts 16W sound output from the speakers and ESS Sabre DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for those who prefer headphones. Virtual surround sound is also included in the Sonic Studio III software. As for recording, the built-in mic offers noise filtering, and it sits next to a Full HD webcam, which also supports Windows Hello facial recognition.

      Inside the device, you'll find some pretty powerful specs. There's a six-core Intel Core i9-8950HK CPU, which is factory overclocked, as well as an Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU, so real-time ray tracing is already part of the offering. You can get up to 64GB of DDR4 memory, and storage comes in the form of 3 PCIe NVMe SSDs with 512GB each.

      For connectivity, there's Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0 support, and a healthy supply of ports. These include and 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet port, a welcome bump over the more typical 1 gigabit, and two power adapter ports, which should indicate just how much power the machine requires. Here's the full list of ports:

      1 x USB3.1 Gen2 (Type-C) / Thunderbolt 3 1 x USB3.1 Gen2 (TypeC) / VirtualLink 3 x USB3.1 Gen2 (Type-A) 1 x USB3.1 Gen1 (Type A) / USB charger + 1 x HDMI 2.0 1 x 3.5mm headphone and microphone combo jack 1 x 3.5mm microphone jack 1 x RJ-45 jack 1 x SD card reader 1 x Kensington lock With all of that packed into a fairly unique form factor for this kind of device, it's likely that the Mothership will carry a pretty hefty price tag. With that being said, ASUS didn't reveal any pricing details, so we'll likely have to wait until closer to the planned release date in the second quarter of 2019.

      Russia uses game footage to accuse the US of helping Islamic State
      by Dreyer Smit

      When it comes to Russia and the US, relations haven't gone over too smoothly between the two nations. The former has been accused of meddling in the last democratic elections in the United States, possibly with the help of Pikachu. In a bid to prove that the country led by Donald Trump isn't the pinnacle of virtue, Russia has compiled video and photographic evidence of its rival allegedly helping Islamic State, something it called 'irrefutable'.



      In-game footage seen left, and the cropped image from the Russian report, right.

      One issue with this so-called 'irrefutable' evidence though, is that some of it appears to have been taken directly from a video game called AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron. The footage which allegedly shows the US aiding IS convoys trying leave a Syrian town was quickly torn to shreds after the developer's watermark was spotted in the corner of one of the cropped images. The Russian Ministry quickly refuted allegations that the documents were 'fake news', by stating that it was placed there by accident, initiating an internal investigation.

      Beyond that, the Conflict Intelligence Team fact-checking group further pointed out that other parts of the briefing were from an attack by the Iraqi military on the insurgents, way back in June 2016. Trying to save face, the Russians updated its dossier with a bundle of new images, this time claiming that it really did prove its previous allegations.

      In a response, the spokesperson of the US-led coalition, Colonel Ryan Dillon noted:

      AC-130 Gunship Simulator is based on the implementation of a weapon going by the same name, during the Vietnam War - which is quite far detached from the Middle-East.

      MINA El Houari had been planning their first date for weeks. The 25-year-old from Cadenet in southeast France had for several months been chatting with the handsome suitor from Morocco.

      Keen for a boyfriend, Ms El Houari must have seen romantic promise in their online friendship ? enough to buy a plane ticket and fly to the North African nation to meet him in person.

      She arrived in Fez, Morocco?s third largest city, on May 19 and booked herself into a five-star hotel before heading out to meet her date, according to regional daily La Provence.

      MINA El Houari had been planning their first date for weeks. The 25-year-old from Cadenet in southeast France had for several months been chatting with the handsome suitor from Morocco.

      Keen for a boyfriend, Ms El Houari must have seen romantic promise in their online friendship ? enough to buy a plane ticket and fly to the North African nation to meet him in person.

      She arrived in Fez, Morocco?s third largest city, on May 19 and booked herself into a five-star hotel before heading out to meet her date, according to regional daily La Provence.
       
      But the evening was about to take a disastrous turn: Within hours, Ms El Houari would be buried alive in the man?s backyard, slowly suffocating to death.

      The man, who has not been named, told police that the evening was going well until Ms El Houari suddenly and inexplicably keeled over and collapsed.

      Believing she had dropped dead, the man says he went into a panic about how to dispose of her body. He decided to bury her in his back garden, claiming he was in such a rush that he failed to realise she was still breathing.

      It later emerged that Ms Houari was an undiagnosed diabetic and had been in a diabetic coma when she was placed in the makeshift grave.

      The man said nothing of the tragedy and nobody was any the wiser. Ms El Houari?s relatives, however, smelt a rat, filing a missing persons report to Moroccan police after they were unable to contact her, even flying to Fez to search for her.

      After speaking with the El Houari family, police interviewed the man over her disappearance and raided his home.

      They found muddy trousers and a shovel before unearthing the gruesome crime scene.

      The man reportedly confessed and has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

      A ventriloquist?s recent subway show could even put the grumpiest commuters in a better mood.

      Nigel Dunkley took his puppet and hopped on the D train heading downtown. The Hempstead, NY native walked on to the train with the doll in a suitcase, and as soon as he sat down, the act began.

      First the ventriloquist makes the puppet act like he is trying to break out of the luggage. Then Dunkley interchanges between his voice and the voice he uses for the doll, all while interacting with passengers on the train.

      The video is entitled, ?Ventriloquist Picking Up Girls On The Subway,? and is quickly gaining popularity. The five-minute skit has 360,000 views on YouTube.

      And as the video title states, Dunkley does get a couple of numbers from women riding on the subway during his act. During the skit, we get to see most of the exchange with a woman named Kaitlin. When the puppet hands off Dunkley?s phone to her, she isn?t sure what to do.

      ?Your number, stupid!? Dunkley replies ? through the puppet of course.
