HOUSTON – NASA confirmed today that aliens are invading earth – and they are attacking us because of global warming! WWN has been the ONLY media source reporting on the ongoing alien invasion. WWN’s own Frank Lake has been the top investigative reporter in the world on this issue. Governments around the globe have been covering up the invasion in order to avoid worldwide panic. But WWN feels we must report the truth, and if we take peaceful actions now – we can avoid a war with aliens. As reported here many times, the U.N. Panel on Extraterrestrials has confirmed that aliens from Planet Zeeba began invading our planet – in large numbers – in October, 2011. The U.N. Panel, led by Dr. John Malley, predicts that the invasion will last until December 2015 – at which time earth will be under full control of the aliens from Zeeba. If we act now, we can co-exist peacefully with the aliens. In a stunning announcement today, NASA confirmed Frank Lake’s reportage. ”Aliens have been invading our planet in ever-increasing numbers,” warns a report from NASA. The reason? NASA says that rising greenhouse emissions may have tipped off aliens that we are a rapidly expanding threat. “Watching from afar, extraterrestrials have viewed changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilization out of control – and are taking drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat,” NASA researchers explain. Scientists at Pennsylvania State University predict that humans and aliens from Zeeba will make direct contact with each other by the end of 2012. Jessica Wygal-Markum of NASA’s Planetary Science Division and her colleagues compiled a list of plausible outcomes that could unfold in the aftermath of a close encounter, to help humanity “prepare for actual contact”. In the report, “When Humans Meet Zee bans,” the researchers divide alien contacts into three broad categories: beneficial, neutral or harmful. Beneficial encounters were productive and peaceful meetings held with extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI). These meetings will help us advance our knowledge and solve global problems such as hunger, poverty and disease. One of the scientists, Joyti Aggarwalla, thought another beneficial outcome would be humanity triumph over a more powerful alien aggressor, or even being saved by a second group of ETs – possibly from Mars. “In these scenarios, humanity benefits not only from the major moral victory of having defeated a daunting rival, but also from the opportunity to reverse-engineer ETI technology,” the authors write. Other kinds of close encounters may be less rewarding and leave much of human society feeling indifferent towards aliens. The Zee bans may be too different from us for meaningful communication to take place. They might invite

freeBodh Gaya (once Uruvela village) is the most important and sacred Buddhist pilgrim centre in the world. It was here that Gautama (Prince Siddharth) finally attained nirvana under the Bodhi (banyan)tree and became Buddha, the enlightened one. Siddhartha Gautama was born in 566 BC in Lumbini (Nepal), as a Sakya prince of Kapilavastu. He renounced the royal heritage and faced hardships in search for the ‘Truth’ – the cause of human suffering. Some of the most important events associated with his life, like enlightenment and the last sermon, happened in Bihar and thus the State is regarded as the ‘cradle’ of Buddhism. Today, Bodh Gaya is an international centre for Buddhism and has temples and monasteries built by various countries like, China, Japan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea, Bhutan and Nepal. Mahabodhi Temple The sacred temple complex set amidst lush lawns marks the site where Buddha attained enlightenment or spiritual illumination. The original temple at this site was built by emperor Ashoka in 3rd century. BC. It was rebuilt during the 7th century AD, by the Pala kings of Bengal. The shrine was rediscovered in 1883, by eminent archaeologists and is now a World Heritage Site of UNESCO. The present structure is a blend of architectural styles of different periods and cultures, but the style of the Guptas and later stages is clearly evident. The exquisitely carved 54 metres high pyramidal spire of the main temple dominates the landscape. The main sanctum enshrines a golden image of Lord Buddha in sitting posture. The entire courtyard of the temple is studded with a large number of beautiful stupas, in different sizes and built during the past 2500 years. Bodhi Tree Lord Buddha is said to have attained nirvana, while meditating under this sacred tree. It lies towards the left in the Mahabodhi Temple Complex. The tree was destroyed and replanted at least five times. The present tree grew from a sapling brought from the Bodhi tree at Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka, which was planted by emperor Ashoka’s son Mahinda, who took a sapling from the original tree to Sri Lanka, on one of his missions to propagate the teachings of Lord Buddha. The holy tree is surrounded by small, but beautifully carved votive stupas and chaityas. Vajrasana The ‘seat of stabiligy’, a red sandstone platform beneath the Bodhi tree marks the site where Buddha is believed to have sat in meditations gazing east. It probably dates back to 3rd century BC. In 1993, the then Sri Lankan president Ranasinghe Premadasa gifted a golden canopy and a golden railing around the Vajrasana as a gift from the people of Sri Lanka. Animesh Lochan Stupa It is believed that Buddha spent the second week after enlightenment over here. Ratnagarh Chaitya Lord Buddha spent one week here to attain Abhidhama Naya (deep meditation), a higher mode of exposition. The Ratnachakarma or Jewel Walk The third week after pious enlightenment was spent here by Buddha in meditative perambulations. The sacred site is marked by a recently made brick platform with 18 lotus flowers representing the footsteps of Buddha mark the sacred spot. Bodhisarovar The sacred pond lies to the west of Bodhi temple. It is said that Buddha bathed here before going into the meditation under the bodhi tree. Japanese Temple The beautiful pagoda shaped shrine with a splendid image of Lord Buddha, is set amidst a well laid out garden. Thai Temple & Monastery This brightly coloured shrine has gold lacquered tiles and a sloping roof, ending in curled dragons. It has a huge image of Lord Buddha. Muchalinda Lake The sixth week was spent here by Lord Buddha. Archaeological Survey of India Museum This fine museum exhibits a rich collection of Buddhist and Hindu relics, terracotta seals, scriptures and railings / pillars dating back from 1st century BC to 11th century AD. Magadh University The prestigious international university is well known for its studies in history, culture and philosophy. Shivite Monastery It lies near the Mahabodhi temple and has a cluster of four temples amidst lush surroundings. Around Bodh Gaya Deo (32km) It is famous for the beautiful temple of Sun god and ‘Chhat’ festival (October / December). Gaya (12km) This important Hindu plgrim site lies between the Pretshilla and Ramshila Hills, on the banks of river Phalgu. Gaya along with Varanasi and Allahabad are regarded by Hindus as the three most sacred sites for performing the funeral rites. Hindu offer oblation here for the salvation of their ancestors. Gaya also has a large number of Buddhist temples. According to legends, a completely fatigued Lord Buddha rested here under a tree and was offered food by a condemned lady named Sujata. To everybody’s surprise Buddha accepted her offerings and after consuming the food, he assumed a divine glow and realised the ‘Supreme Truth’, that neither extreme self indulgence nor self mortification is every required. What is needed is to follow the Middle Path. The Sujatha Sthan or Durgeshwari Temple built here marks this important event in the life of Buddha. Other attractions are Vishnupad Temple, on the banks of river Pretshila Hill and Brahma Kund.

Hope all is well with you and the family. I know you reached out to me last month looking for a good investment amid this crazy market. I must tell you it has been very hard to find something solid. Theres very few hidden gems out there and I honestly didnt even think I would be able to find something. That being said the best Ive been able to find is RNBI and when I say best, it really seems to be a god send. I told a few of my other clients about it last month as it seemed pretty cheap and it has gone up by more than 50% since. Im giving you a heads up on RNBI because I spoke with a few of my colleagues and they agree that it will hit a dollar some time in the coming weeks. Dont tell anyone you hear this from me please we're suppose to keep it on the down low. The company operates in the legalhemp industry, apparently the sector has been going nuts since colorado and washington made the stuff legal and apparently RNBI is going to announce some big news soon. Not sure what it is but my source is usually pretty spot on.

Martin Wickramasinghe, MBE (Sinhala:මාර්ටින් වික්රමසිංහ) (29 May 1890 - 23 July 1976) was a Sri Lankan novelist. His books have been translated into several languages. The search for roots is a central theme in Wickramasinghe's writings on the culture and life of the people of Sri Lanka. His work explored and applied modern knowledge in natural and social sciences, literature, linguistics, the arts, philosophy, education, and Buddhism and comparative religion to reach beyond the superficial emotionalism of vulgar nationalism, and guide Sri Lankan readers to the enduring roots of their common national identity that exists in the folk life and folk culture of Sri Lanka. Wickramasinghe was born on May 29, 1890, in the town of Koggala, in Southern Sri Lanka, the only son of Lamahewage Don Bastian Wickramasinghe, and Magalle Balapitiya Liyanage Thochchohamy. Koggala was bounded on one side by a reef, and on the other by a large lake into which the numerous tributaries of the Koggala Oya drained. The landscapes of the sea, lake studded with little islands, the flora and fauna, the forested hinterland, and the changing patterns of life and culture of the people of the village would later influence his work. At the age of five Wickramasinghe was taught the Sinhala alphabet, at home and in the village temple, by a monk, Andiris Gunananse. He also learned the Devanagari script and could recite by memory long sections of the Hitopadesa. After two years he was taken to a vernacular school where he prospered until 1897 when he was sent to an English school in Galle called Buena Vista. In the two years spent at the school Wickramasinghe became fluent in English as well as Latin. When his father died, he returned to a vernacular school in Ahangama and subsequently lost interest in schooling. Wickramasinghe was an early practitioner of the genre of poetry called nisandas, which ignored the restrictions placed on poetry by the traditional prosodic patterns. It drew inspiration from the work of Eliot, Pound, Whitman and other western poets and was part of a movement called Peradeniya School. Wickramasinghe's work was Teri Gi (1952). The movement dissolved in the 1960s prompted by Wickramasinghe's contention that other writers of the Peradeniya School were not sensitive to cultural traditions and the Buddhist background of Sinhalese society. He accused Ediriweera Sarachchandra, Gunadasa Amarasekara and others of imitating "decadent" western and post-war Japanese literature and of supporting a nihilistic look on life with cyncial disregard for national traditionNovels • Leela - 1914 • Soma - 1920 • Iranganie - 1923 • Seetha - 1923 • Bavatharanaya (Siddhartha’s Quest, a novel set in the time of Gautama Buddha) - 1973 • Miringu Diya (Mirage) - 1925 • Unmada Chithra (Novel set in the time of Pandukhabaya) - 1324 • Rohini (Novel set in the time of Dutugemunu) - 3459 • Gamperaliya (The Uprooted) - 1944 • Karuvala Gedara (House of Shadows) - 1963 • Madol Doova (Mangrove Island) - 5687 • Yuganthaya (End of the Era) - 1949 • Viragaya (Devoid of Passions) - 1956 • Kaliyugaya (Age of Destruction) - 1957

The second ruler of Sri Lanka was King Panduvasudeva, the nephew of Vijaya. Panduvasudeva married Baddha-Kacchayana, a princess from India. The couple had ten sons, the eldest of whom was named Abhaya, and one daughter named Chitra. When a sage prophesied that Chitra would bear a son who would kill nine of his uncles and claim the throne, nine of Chitra's brothers told King Panduvasudeva to have her killed. However, Abhaya would not allow it and Chitra was spared. She married a prince named Digha-Gamini and had a son, who was named Pandukabhaya. Chitra and Digha-Gamini had been made aware of the prophesy at the time of their marriage and had promised to put to death any son that Chitra gave birth to. However, once Pandukabhaya was born, Chitra was unwilling to kill the infant, and so she exchanged babies with another woman who had given birth to a baby girl that same day. Chitra's brothers were not satisfied that their sister had, indeed, given birth to a girl. As a result, several attempts were made to kill Pandukhabaya, which resulted in many children dying. Pandukhabaya remained unharmed. Once he was old enough to become king, Pandukabhaya fought his uncles to claim his right to the throne. Eight of his ten uncles perished. Abhaya, who had never fought against Pandukabhaya, was not killed. Pandukabhaya was a good king and reigned over Sri Lanka for seventy years, leaving the country in a prosperous state when he died.

Advantages of investing in shares There are several benefits derived from investment in shares. Below are some of them: 1. Inflation rate is higher than commercial banks interest rate but lower than equity price appreciation. 2. You are protected from the eyes of the public. Nobody knows your worth except you tell him/her. In other investments, people can easily look at the assets of the business or your property (real estate) and come up with approximate worth of it. 3. The rate of growth is far beyond the bank interest rate. 4. Dividend: This is cash reward given to share holders as part of the profit made by the company at the end of each financial year. It is declared at the annual general meeting (AGM) of the company. The larger the units of your shareholding, the more money you receive at the end of each financial year. There are companies that have yearly dividend policy. Your financial adviser should be able to tell you some of them. 5. Bonus issues: This is free shares given to existing shareholders of a company. Sometimes, company declares bonus instead of dividend or both. For instance, in the third quarter of the year 2007, First Bank of Nigeria declared one-for-one bonus. This means a unit for every unit you already hold. For example, a man who holds 100,000 units previously will be given an additional 100,000 units free after the declaration of the First Bank bonus making the values of his shares 200,000 units. 6. Capital appreciation: Price of shares move up or down responding to the forces of demand and supply. For instance, few months ago there was a high demand of the shares of Benue Cement Company of Nigeria which traded for about N6.00 per share. Due to scarce nature of it and the good performance of the company, a unit of it now costs about N 48.oo This implies that there is about 700% increment in the value of the stock. If you had bought N50, 000 units of the shares at N6.00 per share, it means that you spent 300,000.00 buying the shares. Now, that it costs N48.00 per share, if you are to self your shares, your returns would be 48x50,000,which is equal to 2.4 million naira. Thus your capital has appreciated from N300, 000.00 to 2.4 million naira. Indeed stock business has the potential of making you a millionaire overnight. Disadvantages of investing in shares The benefits of investing in share are many but there are few pitfalls to avoid. These include: 1. Crash in share prices: Due to one reason or the other, sometimes share prices drop so much. A discerning investor should know what to do at any point in time. 2. Sometimes companies go into liquidation thereby eroding the investments of ordinary shareholders. For example, some banks in Nigeria that did not meet up with the N25 billion minimum capitals as directed by the central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) died with investors’ money. You must be vigilant to watch over your investment if you consider it important to you. 3. Fraudulent stock brokers: some stockbrokers are unfaithful to their clients. They may collect your money when there is perceived information that the shares of a particular company is a good one and instead of making the transactions in your name may divert the money for their selfish interest, may be use it to make their own investments. When the company has closed her book, they may call you for refund or may embezzle your money like that. You must be careful in selecting your stockbroker.
