Hey guys,

Just wanted to give everyone working on the JFK project a status update for my next post. I've been very busy at work and haven't had a day off in nearly two weeks but, hopefully Saturday I can get my next post up. That's the plan anyways, but we'll see. Thanks for your patience.

The first 2 projects have been completed!

The Bigfoot project has been closed due to inactivity from the project leader, although the research participant, Okiecowboy, receives full points still. And the project set up by sonofthesun has also been completed.

In regards to the latter, as the closing statement has been posted, all member's with Scholar status are now allowed to post and share their thoughts if they so wish. I've just posted there myself congratulating them on a great project. Feel free to do the same.

Thanks for a great project guys, you did ATS proud.

I am now about 60% done with my research for Druid's Global Warming thing, been working on it in the background as I've been TOPPT'ing all week

So I should have my next bunch of posts up this week, by Tuesday I would forsee at the latest, barring any major child related or health related issues.

I've been working too. I understand completely.

I'd like to thank both daas and SS for their recent contributions to the Global Warming project. Very nice work, both of you. The factual information presented so far has been remarkable.

Every team member has reported in, save Sublimecraft, who I trust will be contributing in the next few days. Once Sublimecraft reports in, I encourage everyone else to complete the balance of their five posts, and give their own personal opinion on the research topic, in a sixth summation post. Once your final post is in, feel free to elaborate on your conclusions. Myself, I am waiting to finish my five posts, till I get the chance to read all the rest of the team's input.

I cannot adequately express how well my team has performed, and to my team, I am proud to be both your friend and research partner. If this project is any indication of future projects, I'll know this forum is in the good hands of my fellow members. You guys rock.

Status Report Update:

Worked 14 hours last weekend adding new dates to the Hughes, Nixon, Apollo timeline.

So far I have plotted out a skeleton framework timeline from the day Howard Hughes was born (allegedly 25 Dec 1905) up until Gerald Ford's expiration date at Rancho Mirage.

So far I have created the main categories, which will be:
Conspiracy Headlines
And Soviet Space.

I still don't know how I am going to turn this timeline into an official research thread because I haven't got any researchers to join me yet. And please PM me with any feedback about the timeline .

I would also greatly appreciate any ATS research scholars who could PM me with 10 or 15 dates that should be entered into this timeline. Please tell me what date you would like added and what category it should be listed under.

Also found this little nugget.

Good Day Everyone,

I would like to propose the following research:

Making a Case for Alien Visitation

This would be a Project Level 3 Research which would last a minimum of one month and would be consisting of ten posts per participants.

I am presently looking for two participants who could handle researching into two of the following topics: (any of those really makes it easy to reach ten posts)

• [color=gold]Close Encounter of the First Kind
- Confirmed Observation of an Unidentified Flying Object
Ex: The Teheran Case, the JAL 1628 Case, the Phoenix Case...

• [color=gold]Close Encounter of the Second Kind
- Confirmed Physical Evidence of a Sighting
Ex: The Rendlesham Case, the Kecksburg Case ...

• [color=gold]Close Encounter of the Third Kind
- Confirmed Extraterrestrial Sighting
Ex: The Roswell Case, the Varginha Case...

• [color=gold]Close Encounter of the Fourth Kind
- Contact.
Ex: The Hills Case, the Walton Case...

• [color=gold]Close Encounter of the Fifth Kind
- Communication & Collaboration
Ex: Alleged Government Contacts & Treaties...

• [color=gold]Ancient artifacts
- Residual Evidence of Past Visitations...

Anyone interested in taking up this challenge may answer within this thread or by U2U.

Thank you.

Hi all,

Just writing to say that i am extremely busy with the real world...and as such will find it difficult to get my 5th post up. I haven't had much time to visit ATS recently (only posting two short threads). I haven't had much time to conduct research into my last topic either.

I apologise greatly for this occurrence, but i should have my post up soon. Next week, i will be especially busy, so i will have time to do it the week after next at the very latest.

Again, i apologise, and i hope you all can forgive me.

Good News in my update this week.
I have been making good and steady progress on my timeline for the Nixon's Apollo project.!date=1950-11-07_00:00:00!

This timeline has several useful purposes. It works as an outline of life events for Howard Hughes and Richard Nixon and many other characters of the 20th century. This timeline also serves to provide an essential framework for historical context because that is so important with regard to the alternative narratives that I have been proposing in all of my posts here on ATS.

Bad News in my update this week.
I had a real world main line water leak and lost the entire weekend to fixing it. Good news is that the plumbing leak was fixed. Didn't have a chance to work on the timeline this weekend!date=1905-02-18_07:10:36!

More Bad News in my update:
I chose a website called tiki-toki to build my timeline. When I was building the timeline there were no adverts on the timeline. Now, tiki-toki has decided to put adverts on my timeline. I am very sorry about that but I have no control over it. .... This is a "free" website and I guess they can put adverts on if they wish to do so.

Unfortunately, the adverts are very distracting on!date=1905-02-18_07:10:36! are very distracting from the timeline and I want to apologize to the Research Group because this timeline is the basis and foundation of my conspiracy theory for Nixon's Apollo. But the timeline is still functional and provides the same information ...

I hope to maintain my Scholar status by posting this update in the Research Forum. I don't have a proper research thread going yet but currently there are no helpful volunteers or prospects in view that could support a research thread on this specific subject at the present time.

Still plugging along on the timeline here!date=1905-02-18_07:10:36! and if anyone out there would like to give a hand please send a U2U to me and perhaps we can make some new breakthroughs in Nixon's Apollo.

Great news everyone.

Finally have some time to actually contribute to ATS again!!!!!! Have been gone for ages, that the site almost feels new

Can't wait to get back into the research thread!!!!

I will be putting forward an idea soon too!

As I let Druid and Crakeur know yesterday, I have been immensely busy the past week or so, as we are gearing up, and ramping up the "Bring ST: Enterprise" campaign on Facebook (and elsewhere) to attempt and salvage the show and bring it back to Television.

I've been doing a lot of the artwork for the campaign, and now have to also put together one for the Ships of the Line calendar, and while it may seem like brainless work, and not really amount to anything, it takes a lot of time to put shots together, light them, post process them, and get them ready to roll, not to mention the approval process.

On top of that i have 3 starships to finish modeling by weeks end, such is the life of a CG Artist.

SO I haven't forgotten anyone, just kinda in auto-pilot mode.

Bi-weekly update.
Subject: Nixon's Apollo
My timeline now has 1000+ entries.

There is a new option on the timeline so you can play with the timeline... there is a small wrench/spanner on the bottom right of the screen when you go there to change the settings. It's pretty cool. Check it out.

Hello - recently appointed scholar here...with a project

(Before I forget thank you to Mod davespanners for helping me out and answering my many questions in a prompt and helpful fashion. I am probably not done with those questions yet...

Where I'm coming from with this project

My project idea focuses on food production and preservation, and in a larger context the ability to self-provide nutrition and nourishment for oneself and one's family. I think so much of this knowledge has been lost in these days of pre-packaged and processed food, and even the knowledge that has been retained can be confusing and contradictory. Opinions and advice abound. Old wives tales continue to surface. Scientific studies are available for perusal but how do they hold up in practice? This project will attempt to answer some of these questions.

In addition, gardening in general is often treated by people as a hobby: we know we can always run to the supermarket to grab what we need. We are not producing food for NECESSARY consumption. If you viewed your garden (and other food sources) as your ONLY source of nourishment you would realize you have to actually eat what you grow - and only that! So how much salad can a person reasonably eat in a week? If you end up with a bumper crop of cukes how many jars of relish can you use in five years? Can your family be happy living off stewed tomatoes and green beans all winter? We are spoiled by endless variety. Growing your own is a whole different story.

Draft project goal (subject to refinement through project team input)

The overarching goal of this project is to understand how self-sufficient the average person can realistically be with self food production. The more data that supports answering this question the better. But I do not suggest that this one research project will be able to answer the question fully.

Research participation opportunities

Many people talk about "living off the land" but how does one do that in practice rather than theory? What nutrition does a human body need and what foods provide it? How much of each food source should you grow for how many people? What do you put by and what is the best way to do that safely while retaining both nutritional value and quality? What are the risks to be aware of (pests, vermin, animals, weather)? What are the costs in terms of money, labor, space? And how do you prepare these foods in the right combination to make satisfying meals?

These are just a few of the factors to consider for those who are interested in getting away from supermarket and fast food living. And I acknowledge that this is no small feat to explore - the number of factors that contribute to success or failure is overwhelming.

Another important point about this project is that it requires empirical testing - actually applying the research to a gardening effort. I am already doing this (gardening) and so would have this covered if others aren't willing or able to do so. But a second and even third gardener would be ideal.

Project timeline

I think it's obvious that this is not a "once and done" effort. The very nature of trying to achieve this end goal would require multiple years of effort and research. Therefore the definition of "done" for an initial project would need to be very clearly defined. I propose chunking out this project into focused, reasonable bites determined by member interest in the necessary research areas. Any and all of the topical areas are worth pursuing. I would be invested in developing a practical plan with focused goals for both the research and the empirical reporting, with reasonable reporting timeframes depending on the subject area. I believe even one member and myself could produce a satisfying project.

This project would not be marked as complete until the end of my (as project leader) growing season. A final project summary would not be posted until October 2013. Empirical researchers would need to be on that growing cycle. Other research contributors could complete their portion earlier, but would not enjoy the "fruits of their labor" until the project was closed in October.

Thanks for listening and let me know if you have any interest in participating, and to what degree. If you know of other members who might be interested in participating in such a project but do not have scholar status please share this thread and have them U2U me.

I have already spoken with you in U2U, but I would most definitely like to help with this research project in particular.

I am very interested in your participation and am so glad you want to be involved. Thank you...

Could you U2U me how many posts you think your research portion on nutrition would entail? Also a proposed schedule for your posts that fits with your working style/personal schedule. And any other thoughts you have about the overall project. I want to ensure this project goes well - it has the potential to get out of hand if not managed well.

As another regular in the gardening thread, and an avid gardener you know I'm down for this one.

Just not today. Just got home from a week from hell/3hr flight/2hr drive, so the brain is a bit fried.

A good sleep and I'll go over your idea more thoroughly. Expect a U2U either tomorrow or Sun for my role and when we can get started. I'm currently involved in another research project, but it seems to have lost momentum, so this'll keep the fires going for the time being.

Count me in friend.

There are no specific rules to being involved in more than one project at a time, in fact, it's encouraged, I believe, barring over extension of time commitments.

You've met the requirements for my research project, save your summation. Post that, and you have contributed your part to that project, and are released from any obligations. There was no time limit on my project. However, I should probably u2u a few members for closure.

It is good to see other members involved in this neglected forum.
