Iranian Women Are Rejecting Forced Hijab - ROBERT SEPEHR

A growing number of women in Iran are taking to streets to protest against mandatory hijabs. They are publicly removing their headscarves, tying them on sticks and waving them in public. After the Islamic Revolution in 1979 the government made it illegal for women to expose their hair in public and they cannot wear clothes that show off their figures. The penalties include jail time and lashes. Please share, thank you.

Voodoo Queen of New Orleans - ROBERT SEPEHR

Voodoo is as intrinsic to New Orleans culture as Mardi Gras, jazz and the beignet (French term for a pastry). Marie Catherine Laveau was a Louisiana Creole practitioner of Voodoo, who was renowned in New Orleans. Although some references to Marie Laveau in popular culture refer to her as a "witch," locals say she is more properly described as a 'Voodoo queen'.

The Venetian Black Nobility and Baroque - ROBERT SEPEHR

The Baroque is a highly ornate and often extravagant style of architecture, music, painting, sculpture and dance that flourished in Europe from the early 17th until the mid-18th century. It followed the Renaissance style with great innovations in dance originating at the French court under Louis 14th, where we see the first clear stylistic ancestor of classical ballet. 

The black nobility are Roman aristocratic families with a connection to the Vatican. Many of the members of Black Noble families also became high-ranking clergy and even Popes.

Ancient History of Ireland, Tuatha Dé Danann, Scythians, and Phoenicians - ROBERT SEPEHR

Tuatha Dé Danann means tribe of the goddess Danu, a god-like mythological race from pre-Christian Gaelic Ireland, descended from Nemed, leader of a previous wave of Irish inhabitants. Nemed was the son of Agnoman of Scythia, who was descended and the Scythians have been associated with the Tribe of Dan. The Scythians, also known as Scyth, Saka, Sakae, Sai, Iskuzai, or Askuzai. In the 18th century, linguists noticed the great similarity between that Phoenician and the early Irish Celtic language.

Ireland's long history is riddled with folklore, ancient mythology, and ancient societies, such as the Druids. Scota, in Irish legend, is the name given to the daughter of an Egyptian Pharaoh. An old Irish legend about an ancient Egyptian princess:

The various royal houses of English history: the Saxons, Danes, Normans, Tudors, Stuarts, Plantagenets, Hanoverians, Saxe-Coburgs, all lines blended and fused with Scottish royalty to form the modern House of Windsor, trace their bloodlines back to a common migration. The Encyclopedia Americana records the Scythians arrived in the region of South Russia “about 700 B.C.” 

Herodotus wrote: “They [the Scythians] make no offerings of pigs, nor will they keep them in their country.” Since the Scythians not only refused to allow pigs to be used in sacrificial purposes, but also banned them entirely from their territory, it is evident that the Scythians did not eat the flesh of swine either.

The Lords of Ancient Anatolia - ROBERT SEPEHR

The Hittites established an empire centered on Hattusa in north-central Anatolia around 1600 BC. In the Amarna tablets, which have been dated to the 14th century BC, the Hittites were clearly regarded by the Egyptians as a major power. In antiquity, the swastika (卐) was used extensively by the Hittites, sometimes as a geometrical motif, other times as a religious symbol.

American congressman Ignatius Loyola Donnelly (1831-1901) wrote a chapter titled "The Aryan Colonies From Atlantis" in his book, Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, where he said:

Did the Aryan race come from Atlantis?

"The center of the Aryan migrations was Armenia. Here too is Mount Ararat, where it is said the ark rested, another identification with the Flood regions, as it represents the usual transfer of the Atlantis legend by an Atlantean people to a high mountain in their new home."

"The Greeks, who are Aryans, traced their descent from the people who were destroyed by the Flood, as did other races clearly Aryan, herein we find another evidence of relationship between the Aryans and the people of Atlantis.. the Greeks, an Aryan race, in their mythological traditions, show the closest relationship to Atlantis. We have seen that Zeus, the king of Atlantis, whose tomb was shown at Crete, was transformed into the Greek god Zeus."

"There is another reason for supposing that the Aryan nations came from Atlantis. We find all Europe occupied by nations recognized as Aryan."

Dream Telepathy and Out of Body Experience - ROBERT SEPEHR

Dream telepathy is the purported ability to communicate telepathically with another person while one is dreaming. The first person in modern times to document telepathic dreaming was Sigmund Freud. An out-of-body experience is an experience in which a person seems to perceive the world from a location outside their physical body. 

Astral projection (or astral travel) is a term used to describe a willful out-of-body experience (OBE) that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness called an "astral body" that is separate from the physical body and capable of travelling outside it throughout the universe.

Scientists Detect Enormous Cavity Beneath Antarctica

In the space of only decades, the continent of Antarctica has lost trillions of tonnes of its ice cover at alarming rates, even in places we once thought were safe. Now, a stunning new void has been revealed amidst this massive vanishing act, and it's a big one: a gigantic cavity growing under West Antarctica that scientists say covers two-thirds the footprint of Manhattan and stands almost 1000 ft tall.

This huge opening at the bottom of the Thwaites Glacier – a mass infamously dubbed the "most dangerous glacier in the world" – is so big it represents an overt chunk of the estimated 252 billion tonnes of ice Antarctica loses every year. Researchers say the cavity would once have been large enough to hold some 14 billion tonnes of ice. Even more disturbing, the researchers say it lost most of this ice volume over the last three years alone.

"We have suspected for years that Thwaites was not tightly attached to the bedrock beneath it," says glaciologist Eric Rignot from the University of California, Irvine, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. Thanks to a new generation of satellites, we can finally see the detail."

Rignot and fellow researchers discovered the cavity using ice-penetrating radar as part of NASA's Operation IceBridge, with additional data supplied by German and French scientists. According to the readings, the hidden void is but one ice casualty among a "complex pattern of retreat and ice melt" that's taking place at Thwaites Glacier, sectors of which are retreating by as much as 2,625 ft every year.

The complex pattern the new readings reveal – which don't fit with current ice sheet or ocean models – suggest scientists have more to learn about how water and ice interact with one another in the frigid but warming Antarctic environment. "We are discovering different mechanisms of retreat," first author of the new paper, JPL radar scientist Pietro Milillo explains.

While researchers are still learning new things about the complex ways ice melts at the Thwaite Glacier, at its most basic, the giant cavity represents a simple (if unfortunate) scientific actuality.

"[The size of] a cavity under a glacier plays an important role in melting," Milillo says. As more heat and water get under the glacier, it melts faster."

That's important to know, since Thwaites currently accounts for about 4 percent of global sea level rise. If it were to disappear entirely, the ice held in the glacier could lift the ocean by an estimated about 2 ft. But that's not even the worst-case scenario. The Thwaites Glacier actually holds in neighboring glaciers and ice masses further inland. If its buttressing force disappeared, the consequences could be unthinkable, which is why it's considered such a pivotal natural structure in the Antarctic landscape.

Just how long it will stay, nobody knows – which is why scientists are right now embarking on a major expedition to learn more about Thwaites. What they'll find remains to be seen, but it's inarguably among the most important scientific research being conducted in the world right now.

The findings are reported in Science Advances.

Lost or Forbidden Mysteries of Inner Earth - ROBERT SEPEHR

Ancient myths from around the world describe numerous entrances to vast underground cavern-cities, within the bowels of the earth. Many occult organizations, esoteric authors, and secret societies concur with these legends of subterranean inhabitants, who are the remnants of antediluvian civilizations, which sought refuge in hollow caverns inside the earth.

A massive network of 12,000 year old underground tunnels discovered that stretch from Scotland to Turkey.

The prehistoric temples of Malta include many subterranean passageways, including ancient catacombs and chambers, with underground tunnels that have now been closed off to the public.

New Swabia (Neuschwabenland) is an area of Antarctica between 20°E and 10°W in Queen Maud Land. It was explored by the German Antarctic Expedition which discovered ice-free areas with warm fresh-water lakes and vegetation. In 1943, German Navy Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz stated: "The German submarine fleet is proud of having built for the Führer in another part of the world a Shangri-La, an impregnable fortress."
