Repeated radio signals coming from galaxy 1.5 billion light years away, scientists announce

Scientists have spotted repeated blast of radio signals coming from deep in space.The breakthrough is only the second time scientists have seen such a repeating radio burst. It both deepens the mystery and offers a potential opportunity to finally understand what might be throwing out the burst from a galaxy billions of light years away.Fast radio bursts have been speculated to be the result of everything from exploding stars to transmissions from aliens. But they have remained entirely mysterious, with little evidence at all of where they might be coming from.The flashes only last for a milisecond but they are flung out with the same amount of energy the sun takes 12 months to produce.Join Independent Minds For exclusive articles, events and an advertising-free read for just £5.99 €6.99 $9.99 a month Get the best of The Independent With an Independent Minds subscription for just £5.99 €6.99 $9.99 a month Get the best of The Independent Without the ads – for just £5.99 €6.99 $9.99 a monthProbably most exciting of the new bursts is one that scientists saw repeat six times, apparently from the same location.

Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there. And with more repeaters and more sources available for study, we may be able to understand these cosmic puzzles—where they’re from and what causes them,” said Ingrid Stairs, a member of the CHIME team and an astrophysicist at UBC.Seeing two repeating signals probably means that there exists – and that humanity will probably find – a "substantial population" of repeating signals, the researchers write in one of the two papers published in Nature.Having two sets of repeating bursts could also allow scientists to understand what distinguishes them from single bursts, helping them understand more about their source and watch for future blasts.In all the researchers spotted some 13 of the bursts in just a three week period, offering a vast new trove of data for the scientists hunting for their source. Together they could offer some evidence of the extreme or unusual environment they are coming from – or the mysterious technology that some claim alien civilisations could be launching them into space with.“Whatever the source of these radio waves is, it’s interesting to see how wide a range of frequencies it can produce. There are some models where intrinsically the source can’t produce anything below a certain frequency,” says team member Arun Naidu of McGill University.The blasts were discovered by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment in British Columbia. Some scientists had worried that the range of frequencies it can pick up would be too low for it to receive the FRBs – but it found far more than expected, and scientists expect it to identify even more.Of the 13 new blasts that were picked up, at least seven of them were recorded at 400 MHz – the lowest frequency of any yet discovered. That suggests there might be even more of them, too low to be picked up by CHIME.“[We now know] the sources can produce low-frequency radio waves and those low-frequency waves can escape their environment, and are not too scattered to be detected by the time they reach the Earth. That tells us something about the environments and the sources. We haven’t solved the problem, but it’s several more pieces in the puzzle,” says Tom Landecker, a CHIME team member from the National Research Council of Canada.

R. Kelly’s daughter speaks out on ‘monster’ father

(CNN) R. Kelly's estranged daughter has broken her silence about the controversy surrounding her father.Joann Kelly, who goes by the name Buku Abi, posted a lengthy statement on her Instagram stories Thursday which began "Buku here. I just want to say a few things...""Before I start I just want it to be known that I am speaking from the heart, nothing I say or do not say is to hurt ANY party reading this or affected by this," the statement read. "To the people that feel I should be speaking up/against everything that is going on right now. I just want you all to understand that devastated is an understatement for all that I feel currently."R. Kelly has come under fire in the wake of the recent Lifetime docuseries "Surviving R.

Marsai Martin Is Youngest Black Executive Producer In History

With 'Little,' Marsai Martin Becomes The Youngest Black Executive Producer In Hollywood HistoryBlack. Girl. Magic.Marsai Martin will hold the title as the youngest black executive producer in Hollywood history, as the release of her film Little is slated to hit theaters in the spring.The 14-year-old black-ish actress, who will star alongside Issa Rae and Regina Hall in the body-switching comedy, said that the film was inspired by the movie Big, which she watched at the age of 10.“It was one of my most favorite films growing up,” Martin said of the Tom Hanks classic. “After the Season 1 finale of Black-ish, we told Kenya Barris about it, and he called Will [Packer] and said: ‘Yo, you know the girl who plays Diane on Black-ish? She has this dope idea!’”The trailer for the comedy was released yesterday (Jan. 9), to rave reviews from several corners of the Internet, who (like us) are genuinely excited about the film's release in a few months.For a short while, Martin will actually hold the title of the youngest executive producer in Hollywood history- period. However, 13-year-old Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown is producing and starring in a film series about Sherlock Holmes' younger sister. The first film is expected to be released later this year, meaning Brown would take the title.Regardless, kill it Marsai.

‘Black Panther’ goes home empty-handed at Golden Globes + full winner’s list

Spike Lee's 'BlacKkKlansman' didn't get any love either.Even though we were rooting for Wakanda at the 76th annual Golden Globes on Sunday night, Black Panther didn’t take home any awards.The film directed by Ryan Coogler was nominated for Best Motion Picture (Drama) and Best Original Score but lost in both categories.Spike Lee‘s BlacKkKlansman was nominated in four categories (including best Picture Drama) , but failed to take home any trophies. Lee was nominated for Best Director and the film’s star, John David Washington, was up for Best Actor (Drama).Spike Lee breaks down why “Blackkklansman” needed to open on Charlottesville anniversary (WATCH)While we’re bummed that neither of those flicks took home any awards, there were still a few moments to celebrate big wins for Black actors.Regina King won Best Supporting Actress (Drama) for her role in If Beale Street Could Talk and for a few moments, all was right in the world as she applauded Barry Jenkins and pledged to hire way more women for all of her future projects during her touching acceptance speech.Mahershala Ali won Best Supporting Actor (Comedy or Musical) for his portrayal of Dr. Don Shirley in Green Book.

Hidden Bible messages say next week’s ‘super wolf blood moon’ will trigger end of...

A RARE super wolf blood moon has been the harbinger for wacky theories about the Bible predicting the end of the world.The stunning moon appears only 28 times in a century with the next appearance on January 21 and its strange colour has given rise to number of prophecies of doom.PA:Press Association 3 The super wolf blood moon will be in the skies from January 21Some see the blood moon as a fulfilment of biblical prophecy and a string of apocalyptic books have been published about the phenomena.Perhaps the best know is ‘Four Blood Moons: Something is about to change’ in which author John Hagee suggest the event could be a fulfilment of biblical prophecy.Also predicting doom are 'Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs' by Mark Biltz and 'Blood Moons Rising: Bible Prophecy, Israel, and the Four Blood Moons' by Oklahoma pastor Mark Hitchcock.Megachurch pastor Hagee wrote that the red disks of the moon during the full eclipses are referred to in the book of Joel 2:31: "The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come."Getty - Contributor 3 The Bible says the moon is a harbinger of doomActs 2:20 echoes the same doom: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord.”“I believe that the Heavens are God’s billboard, that He has been sending signals to Planet Earth but we just have not been picking them up,” he has said.He predicted a Rapture will occur where Christians will be taken to heaven, Israel will go to war in a great battle called Armageddon, and Jesus will return to earth.His book reached number 4 on The New York Times best-seller list in the ‘advice/how to section’ but his predictions were less successful.AFP or licensors 3 So far the predictions haven't come trueFor many cultures the disappearance of the moon is a time of danger and chaos.A myth of the Hupa tribe from northern California claims that the moon has 20 wives and pets including mountain lions and snakesWhen the moon didn't provide them with enough food, they attacked their master, making it bleed.MOST READ IN NEWS SAUCE SAGA Dad's Facebook post about accidentally giving hot sauce to baby sparks cop probe FULL METAL JACKET Soldier returns from holiday to find his bedroom covered in TIN FOIL Exclusive 'WE'LL NEVER STOP' Fresh hope for Maddie's parents as Jayme Closs case boosts belief FIGHT OR FLIGHT Family 'forced to sit on plane FLOOR for TUI flight as seats didn't exist' Exclusive GOING UNDERGROUND Three men have orgy on board London Tube train in front of passengersThe eclipse would only be brought to an end when the moon's wives came to its aid, collecting its blood and bringing it back to health, so the legend goes.Their southern California counterparts the Luiseno believe that the eclipse shows that the moon is ill and tribe members to sing prayers and chants to nurse it back to health.For the Incas of Peru, jaguar that attacked and ate the moon and then would crash to earth to eat people.We pay for your stories!

R. Kelly docuseries spurs investigation into singer after abuse allegations

(CNN) R. Kelly could be facing an investigation in Georgia after the airing of a Lifetime documentary series that chronicled allegations of abuse, predatory behavior and pedophilia against the singer.Gerald Griggs, an attorney for the family of Joycelyn Savage, one of the women featured in "Surviving R. Kelly," said the Fulton County District Attorney reached out to Griggs a few days ago, after the show aired.Griggs said the Fulton County DA is conducting an investigation into Kelly.Chris Hopper, the public information officer for the Fulton County DA, said he had "no comment" after being asked if there was an open investigation of Kelly in Georgia.Griggs said he was asked to provide a list of witnesses in regards to events that allegedly took place in Kelly's house in the northern Atlanta suburb of Johns Creek in 2017.Read More

Man Who Sold Kidney For iPhone ‘Left Bed-Bound And Unable To Work’

A man who sold one of his kidneys to get himself a new iPhone and iPad is now bed-bound and requires around-the-clock care, according to reports.The man, who is now 25, sold off one of his kidneys back in 2011 when he was 17.According to Chinese media, the man, named only as Wang, was given 22,000 yuan (£2,528) after selling the organ on the black-market. Reports at the time claimed that he wanted to buy a new tech products, but his parents couldn't afford them.He reportedly found some dodgy middlemen on an online forum called QQ, who said they could help him raise the necessary cash if he was willing to flog one of his kidneys.Speaking to CNTV.cncn, Wang said: "At the time, I wanted to buy an iPad2, but I didn't have any money. When I was on the Internet, I had a kidney agent send a message, saying that selling a kidney can give me 20,000."The teen secretly arranged to travel from his home in the eastern Anhui Province to the southern Hunan Province, without letting his folks know.When he arrived he was met by a couple of surgeons, a surgeon's assistant and a nurse. The operation was carried out and he was sent on his way. The poorly recipient of the organ paid 150,000 yuan (£17,258) and an additional $10,000 (£7,860) for the kidney - a lot more than Wang was given.Wang then went on to buy himself an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 before he returned home.However, once home, his parents found out what he had done and, understandably, hit the roof.The man was just 17 when he went through with the procedure.His mum called the police and an investigation was launched.In 2012 nine people who were involved in the deal were jailed - with the middlemen being sentenced to three to five years and the surgeons each being given three years.Wang and his family were awarded 1.47 million yuan (£169,000) in compensation.Following the op, Wang's health quickly deteriorated, and he suffered renal deficiency, which later led to him becoming bed-bound, CCTV.com reports.According to recent reports, Wang now has renal failure and is reliant on regular dialysis. He has to live on benefits as he is unable to work.Featured Image Credit: ifeng.com

Cloudy with a chance of arachnophobia: raining spiders in Brazil – video

Residents in a rural area of southern Brazil were rained on by spiders this week. Experts say it’s typical in Minas Gerais state during hot, humid weather. While it looks like the spiders are falling from the sky, they’ve actually created a huge web to catch prey.
