source of 'fast radio bursts' remains a mystery but two Harvard academics are not discounting the possibility that they could be message from another galaxy

Scientists might have found proof of alien life but misunderstood it,
according to a professor at Harvard University.

Strange radio waves that have been reaching Earth might actually be
leakage from a huge, light-powered ship deep in space.

Fast radio bursts (FRB), which have perplexed scientists since they
were discovered in 2007, could be evidence of advanced alien
technology, according to Avi Loeb of the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre
for Astrophysics. Researchers, however, remain far from establishing
whether the source of these “messages” is what Loeb speculates it is –
leakage from planet-sized transmitters that are powering interstellar
probes in distant galaxies.

05-DEC-2016 :: "Somehow we are picking up signals from radio programmes of 40, 50, 60 years ago."

Don DeLillo, who is a prophetic 21st writer, writes as follows in one
of his short stories:
The specialist is monitoring data on his mission console when a voice
breaks in, “a voice that carried with it a strange and unspecifiable
He checks in with his flight-dynamics and conceptual- paradigm
officers at Colorado Command:
“We have a deviate, Tomahawk.”
“We copy. There’s a voice.”
“We have gross oscillation here.”
“ There’s some interference. I have gone redundant but I’m not sure
it’s helping.”
“We are clearing an outframe to locate source.”
“ Thank you, Colorado.”
“It is probably just selective noise. You are negative red on the
step-function quad.”
“It was a voice,” I told them.
“We have just received an affirm on selective noise... We will
correct, Tomahawk. In the meantime, advise you to stay redundant.”
The voice, in contrast to Colorado’s metallic pidgin, is a melange of
repartee, laughter, and song, with a “quality of purest, sweetest

Zuma Says Demonstrations Against Him Showed Racism Is 'Real'

“There is a resurgence of racism in our country. It is also clear that
racists have become more emboldened,” Zuma told a ceremony near
Johannesburg to honor former ANC military commander Chris Hani, who
was assassinated in 1993, a year before the end of white-minority
rule. “The marches that took place last week demonstrated that racism
is real and exists in our country.”

The protests were called by Save South Africa, which has been
campaigning for better government, and were backed by the main
opposition party, the Democratic Alliance, and civil-rights groups.

“The racist onslaught has become more direct and is no longer hidden
as was the case in the early years of our constitutional democratic
order,” he said. “Racists no longer fear being caught or exposed.”
