Sources are reporting that the US Naval Research Laboratory, and engineers from the Plasma Physics Division, have used HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program)array to create an artificial version of an aurora borealis "that can be used to explore ionospheric occurrences and their impact on communications, navigation and space weather".
Using the powerful HAARP transmitter in Gakona, Alaska, the lab produced what they called a "sustained high density plasma cloud in Earth’s upper atmosphere". This cloud apparently glowed green, and was clearly visible to the naked eye.
This, and other research, is sponsored by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).
For those concerned about such undisclosed projects being run in the Earth’s ionosphere, this news comes as a disturbing verification of the power and abilities of HAARP. These advances might be leaps towards the weaponization and control of our own environment.
"Previous artificial plasma density clouds have lifetimes of only ten minutes or less," says Paul Bernhardt, NRL Space Use and Plasma Section. "This higher density plasma ’ball’ was sustained over one hour by the HAARP transmissions and was extinguished only after termination of the HAARP radio beam."
Some researchers warn that such technologies might be used by militaries or governments to influence and control a population by terrifying or otherwise influencing the public through displays in the sky, such as in Project Blue Beam. Other investigators speculate that developments in mind control technologies could stem from this type of research, and we the public must be mindful of the ethical issues of mental and geophysical manipulation. Other possibilities for undisclosed instances of this type of technology include unexplained mass bird deaths, abnormal hurricane and weather behaviour, and the 2009 Norway Spiral anomaly.

"A world of pure imagination": How Occupy turned to "anarchy" 2014 04 17
In the closing ceremonies of London’s 2012 Summer Olympics, comedian Russell Brand, perched atop the Beatles’ "Magical Mystery Tour" bus, opened his performance by singing the first lines of "Pure Imagination" from the movie Willy Wonka:

Artists ’have structurally different brains’ 2014 04 17
Artists have structurally different brains compared with non-artists, a study has found.
Participants’ brain scans revealed that artists had increased neural matter in areas relating to fine motor movements and visual imagery.
The research, published in NeuroImage, suggests that an artist’s talent could be innate.
But training and environmental upbringing also play crucial roles in their ability, the authors report.
As in many areas ...
NSA-proof email service goes online 2014 04 17 A new email service that protects its users from the prying eyes of the NSA and other spy agencies has gone online. The service’s creators say it will make encrypted messaging accessible to all and curtail internet snooping.
Germany-based Lavaboom was inspired by Lavabit, the encrypted email service that was believed to have been used by whistleblower Edward Snowden before it ...
