The US-based Paradigm Research Group (PRG) believes that the existence of aliens are covered by world's intelligence group, as the extra-terrestrials visit earth to work with them in top-secret projects. Steve Bassett, the founder of PRG took a step ahead and flew to Russia with a hope that President Vladimir Putin will take a lead to disclose the fact that aliens visit earth and work along with the government. The only registered lobbyist Bassett spent a week in Russia and was trying to convince Putin to understand the importance of lifting the alleged "truth embargo." According to Express.co.uk Bassett claims since a flying saucer allegedly crashed at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, the existence of alien has been kept as a secret. He gave an interviewed for a Russian documentary during his visit to the country. Bassett told REN TV that he has specifically brought up his interest as to "why Putin did not take this legacy in the 26 years since the end of the Cold War and make the … [Read more...] about Russian President Vladimir Putin to reveal alien existence secret?

Strava CEO James Quarles released a statement following the publication of a fitness tracker heat map that may have exposed US military bases and sensitive humanitarian aide sites around the world. Quarles said he would work with the military and government to address potentially sensitive data, although it’s unclear how, since the data is already out there. The US military is reviewing its security practices after the map’s publication and its subsequent scrutiny online. Strava’s CEO has responded after the fitness-tracking app released a global map of activity that appears to expose several sensitive US military and humanitarian relief sites around the world. “In building [the map], we respected activity and profile privacy selections, including the ability to opt out of heatmaps altogether,” Strava CEO James Quarles wrote in a statement sent to Business Insider. “However, we … [Read more...] about Strava CEO responds after the company’s heat map may have compromised secret US military bases around the world
A fitness app called Strava updated the 2017 exercise routes of more than one billion people over the weekend. In the process, Strava may have inadvertently revealed the locations and activities of US troops in secret bases around the world. The Strava app takes data from fitbits and smartphones, uploading the information to a “heatmap” for users to track their workouts and share with friends. People from all around the world use the app, and could prove problematic for a number of foreign militaries. But since the app is used mostly by young westerners, the US military has the most to lose, given its large global footprint. Here are 10 of the most revealing images from the heatmap:These look like US outposts outside of Mosul, Iraq. Via Tobias Schneider Here’s Camp Lemonnier, a US military base in Djibouti, along with a possible CIA site nearby.

An interactive heat map from the fitness-tracking app Strava appears to have exposed sensitive sites. Hackers or state actors could use the information to find military bases. Bases of multiple nations were exposed, but as the US has the biggest global presence, it stands the most to lose. Over the weekend a company called Strava, a social network for people who want to track their workouts, updated an online map showing the routes of 1 billion workouts in 2017. But in doing so, it seems to have exposed secret US military bases in Turkey, Syria, and Yemen. Strava drew on data from devices like Fitbits or smartphones that people use to track workouts such as runs or bike rides. But fitness-tracker users skew Western, young, and active. In countries like Niger, the heat map appears to highlight the activity of US troops on military bases keeping fit. The result is potentially damning for the US military’s … [Read more...] about A map of fitness-tracker data may have compromised top-secret US military bases around the world
January 21 marked the 50th anniversary of the start of the Battle of Khe Sanh. The battle started with around 20,000 men from the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) fighting against some 6,000 US Marines and South Vietnamese Army soldiers. As the battle continued, up to 45,000 US soldiers, and up to 100,000 NVA troops would take part in the brutal 77-day fight. 24,000 airstrikes dropped more than 100,000 tons of bombs – roughly 5 tons for every one NVA soldier. The NVA fired over 10,000 rockets, mortars, and artillery rounds – 360 a day on average, and 1,300 during the heaviest bombardment. Combat was so intense that the Khe Sanh Combat Base was completely surrounded and cut off, leaving the only way to resupply the base by air. There are still debates about the true number of casualties, but estimates range that 1,000 to 3,500 US soldiers died, and a secret report from the US Military Assistance Command, Vietnam, estimated that only 5,500 NVA troops were … [Read more...] about 50 years ago, US troops bunkered down for the Vietnam War’s most infamous siege — here’s how the Battle of Khe Sanh unfolded
