From 1978, "The Sky Creatures: Living UFOs"
“The mysterious ‘foo fighters’ that World War II And Korean War Pilots reported as miniature UFO’s can be fully explained as critters in the visible state pic.twitter.com/aMkC4TCMug— TheHuntForTomClancy (@HuntClancy) March 8, 2023
This extraordinary book has done what thousands of astrophysicists, exobiologists, and ufologists have failed to do. It breaks through the baffling UFO mystery to demonstrate the presence of living "critters" in the sky - a nearly invisible lifeform of unknown origin.
Drawing on the theories of Rudolf Steiner and Dr. Wilhelm Reich, "Sky Creatures" uniquely states - with photographic evidence - that UFOs are not extraterrestrial spaceships at all, but biological organisms inhabiting our own planet.
Written in clear, non-technical language, these pages present UFOs as they have never been presented before - as bio-organisms native to our atmosphere, living with us, side by side, unnoticed since the beginning of time. A must-have for serious ufologists.

LA Times explores why there are so many castles in Burbank, California
before this developer built castles, he made a fortune doing something slightly less whimsical: supplying specialized parts and hinges for the aerospace industry.
Over the years, [he] reinvested profits into real estate development. He built various residential, industrial and commercial buildings — dressing some of them up as castles along the way.
Conveniently, building castles doesn’t need to cost significantly more than constructing your average building — at least not the way [he] and his team approached it. “You only needed to modify walls a little bit and put on some extra characteristics that weren’t that much more expensive than a regular block building”
“We hold a pretty much zero vacancy rate across Burbank in any of the buildings that we own that are in the castle style,” [his son] said. The aesthetic “really appeals to anybody that wants a creative spot to have their business.”
"Howard Schultz Steps Down as Starbucks CEO ... days before Schultz is supposed to testify before a Senate committee"
That's today from Eater. NBC, a couple of weeks ago:
Starbucks is pushing back against Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee he chairs ahead of a vote expected next week to subpoena interim CEO Howard Schultz as part of an investigation into federal labor law.
“Respectfully, Howard Schultz is not the right witness for the hearing,” [wrote] Starbucks’ acting executive vice president and general counsel . . . . he will “cease to be the interim ceo of the company this month.”

Microsoft says the errors its AI assistant creates will be "usefully wrong"
Microsoft said that its popular business apps like Word and Excel would soon come bundled with ChatGPT-like technology dubbed Copilot.
But this time, Microsoft is pitching the technology as being “usefully wrong.”
In an online presentation about the new Copilot features, Microsoft executives brought up the software’s tendency to produce inaccurate responses, but pitched that as something that could be useful. As long as people realize that Copilot’s responses could be sloppy with the facts, they can edit the inaccuracies and more quickly send their emails or finish their presentation slides.
