Illinois emergency planning and World leaders prepare! But for what?

Okay two things…

I just came across something very strange. Illinois planning and preparedness for emergencies have just released  a game that you can download that is called “The Day the Earth Shook” which has been compiled by Electronic Visualization Lab at the University of Illinois – EVL. What this game presents is quite astonishing. There is going to be a massive earthquake and the aliens have come down to help children prepare for this disaster! Is this weird or what?

Watch this youtube to get a grasp of what is going on.

Oh, and while researching this a bit further, Sesame Street preparing kids for an emergency too! Take a quick look at this video to see. 

Secondly, there was recently a panel of world leaders who met to talk about many things, a think tank so to speak. Anyway, one of the topics was… you guessed it, aliens! Attendees include…

Former British and Canadian Prime Ministers, Tony Blair and Jean Chretien; Jim Albaugh, President and CEO of Boeing; Andy Bird, chairman of Walt Disney International; Jared Cohen, Director of Google ideas, and many others. The advice they got was that the issue of extraterrestrial life is real, and they better start paying attention to the business implications. Here’s how the GCF summarized the panel presentations on its website:

Learning from Outer Space – Panel
The unconventional and highly relevant topic of extraterrestrial life forms was addressed by yesterday’s panel discussion “Contact: Learning from Outer Space”. Experts Zoaghloul El-Naggar, Stanton Friedman, Michio Kaku, Nick Pope and Jacques Vallee made compelling cases for the existence of living beings elsewhere in the galaxy, drawing upon empirical evidence, religious theology and logical reasoning.
Mr. Friedman opened his remarks with a bold statement, “Flying saucers are real!” and this summed up the perspective of the panel members. Mr. Pope explored the potential business implications of outer space, such as the profitability of alien branding or sponsorship.
While El-Naggar was also convinced of their existence, he raised the interesting point that it may not be ethical to spend resources trying to contact alien societies when we still face war and poverty in our own society.
Mr. Vallee encouraged more academics to analyze the evidence. However, on behalf of his successful Venture Capital fund, he said, “We are not ready to invest in this type of research, but we think that somebody should.”

    • And this…

      The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) procures and stores pre-packaged
      commercial meals to support readiness capability for immediate distribution to disaster
      survivors routinely. The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of
      supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the
      sustainment of life during a 10-day period
      of operations. FEMA is considering the following specifications (14M meals per day):
