Little Boy Produces Fire Balls With His Eyes

A nine-year-old boy, Igor Nogovitsin from the settlement of Vychegodsky of the Kotlass district in Russias Arkhangelsk region revealed supernatural powers. Many witnesses saw the boy produce fire balls with his eyes; the balls set clothes, furniture and domestic appliances on fire.

The phenomenal capabilities revealed quite unexpectedly when the boy spent his winter vacations at his grandmothers in the settlement of Cheremukha of the Kotlass district. Director of the local administration Boris Bobylev says that before the weekend mother of the boy asked to bring a priest to their home as strange things happened there: pails could fall by themselves, chairs turned over and a kettle fell down from the gas stove. What is more, clothes and furniture could quite unexpectedly ignite here or there in the house. When such unexplainable things happened, only Igor, his 72-year-old grandmother, his mother and his sister were at home. Fire fighters were called for to extinguish the fire. The fire extinguishing team also witnessed furniture and clothes suddenly ignite and burners of the gas stove inflame by themselves. The fire extinguishing team tried to find the cause of the strange ignitions, checked the electric wires, the flues and all electric appliances. No failures were discovered. Some unknown strange source was declared the cause of the ignitions.

Boris Bobylev says that the boy considers himself the cause of the ignitions, as there are red balls in his eyes and in the head, the balls spring out and set everything on fire. Relatives of the boy say that not long before the fire they saw a bright red glow similar to a laser ray going from the boy. This unusual glow was flying about the house chaotically, sometimes it split into several small particles. When it touched the furniture, everything was on fire. Several days ago Igor told his mother that he saw blue and green balls, but the woman believed it was a joke.

The struggle with the unusual ignitions in the house lasted for almost 24 hours. Then Igor told his relatives that he would immediately collect the balls that were flying about the house and let them go out. Igor says: I let 106 balls out of the house, 26 of them fell into the well and the rest flew to the forest. But there are 212 balls still remaining inside of me. Currently the boy undergoes psychiatric and other examinations in a Kotlass hospital.

In Honor of Igor Kurchatov: The Symbol of the Russian Nuclear Power

OPEC: Global Oil Crisis Inevitable?
Saudi Arabia denied the leadership among oil exporting countries for the third time already
Despite the efforts taken to save appearances, OPEC seems to have lost its control over the worlds oil markets (the control is lost for a while, but still). In the end of the previous year, responsible OPEC representatives told that there was enough hydrocarbon stuff, that prices were within the limits determined by OPEC itself and that all problems were just temporary. However, the situation proved to be different in fact. The continuous strike in Venezuela paralyzed one of the most active OPEC members. And the oil prices exceeded the fixed limits. Moreover, the disputes concerning leadership inside the oil cartel have even aggravated. A crisis was brewing for a long period already until it broke out at the 123rd OPEC conference in Vienna

Do Ho Chi Minh Heirs Also Want a Bomb?
This is to be not ordinary, but a nuclear bomb
At the time while the leading world countries suggest their plans for settlement of the North Korean crisis, one more Asiatic country declares its desire to have its own nuclear power plant, and if possible, even several plants. The intention was recently declared by Vietnam. Until recently, this country was associated with Americas unsuccessful war and cheap mass consumption goods that have flooded Russias markets. However, it is an open secret that within several years already, Vietnam has been experiencing economic transformations similar to that ones held in China, i.e. the preservation of the monopoly on the ruling partys authority. The transformations made in Vietnam certainly differ from those held in China, and the differences are significant

Whatever you may say, but the Internet has radically changed the world. The truly unlimited resources (which are not yet thoroughly studied, by the way) of the worldwide web are joyful and scaring at the same time. Resourceful Americans started using the Internet as an instrument of propaganda. In the present day conditions, can you imagine what antediluvian methods of propaganda were used in the old days? The best methods were leaflets and humanitarian aid scattered from planes. The situation with spreading propaganda materials is quite different today: a man is sitting quietly in a warm office and emails messages all over the world
