From flying boats to secret Soviet weapons to alien visitors – a brief cultural history of UFOs

From flying boats to secret Soviet weapons to alien visitors – a brief cultural history of UFOs

The worldwide fascination with UFOs started in the late 1940s after a few incidents made the news in the U.S.

by Greg Eghigian, Penn State

On June 25, 2021, the U.S. government released a nine–page preliminary report on UFOs, or, as it is now calling them, Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, or UAPs. The report is the latest notable event in what has been a renaissance for UFOs in recent years. Greg Eghigian is a historian of science at Penn State who has published research and is writing a book on the history of UFOs in the U.S. We spoke with him for The Conversation Weekly podcast the day before the new report came out to better understand the cultural history of UFOs in the U.S.

Unstuck: Create a New Path for Yourself

Unstuck: Create a New Path for Yourself

BY LEO BABAUTA

Sometimes it can feel like we’re stuck in life, doing the same things we’re unhappy with, over and over again.

Maybe you’ve been procrastinating on your meaningful work, or getting stuck in indecision or perfectionism. Maybe you’ve been putting off exercise or meditation, getting your finances in good shape, or making some other important change in your life.

Quick Find: Ahmed Bukhatir – Islamic Nasheed Singer

Quick Find: Ahmed Bukhatir – Islamic Nasheed Singer

REPOST: Another gem of a find is in the music of Islamic singer AHMED BUKHATIR. The first song I hear was an English nasheed* called “Forgive Me.” Even though the English isn’t very well put together the essence and the emotion is felt. The video for the song shows Ahmed coming in contact with various children, one with no leg, another with no sight, and one with no hearing. When he realizes these things his words, “Oh God, forgive me when I whine” A subtle and strong song about how we complain about things in life and when we come to the realization of other people’s suffering, we must humble our selfs about trivial things.
