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.

Prejudice is a Form of Common Sense - Hard-Wired Into the Human Brain, Says ASU Study 2014 07 26
Contrary to what most people believe, the tendency to be prejudiced is a form of common sense, hard-wired into the human brain through evolution as an adaptive response to protect our prehistoric ancestors from danger.
So suggests a new study published by Arizona State University researchers in the May issue of the "Journal of Personality and Social Psychology," which contends that, ...
The State is a Bully 2014 07 24
In the history of Western philosophy and social theory, no really silly idea has been more successful than the theory of the social contract.
It is in fact not a theory of the social contract. It is a theory of the political contract. It is the idea, promoted by Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, that, at some point in ...
NATO Exercise in Ukraine Coincided with MH-17 Shoot-down 2014 07 24 Rapid Trident was omitted from the flurry of coverage on the shoot-down MH-17.
From the U.S. Army in Europe website:
Rapid Trident supports interoperability among Ukraine, the United States, NATO and Partnership for Peace member nations. The exercise helps prepare participants to operate successfully in a joint, multinational, integrated environment with host-nation support from civil and governmental agencies. ...
Warning of ’imminent’ terror attack in Norway 2014 07 24 Norwegians were warned Thursday of the concrete possibility of a terror attack occurring in that country at the hands of people with connections to an extremist group in Syria.
A press conference was called in Oslo, Norway on Thursday where an announcement was made of a "possible concrete threat" to national security in that country from terrorists related to an extremist ...
