Abbie Bela claimed that she was recently abducted by a group of five aliens from her Canary Wharf apartment. In a frank admission, she said she immediately connected with one of her intergalactic visitors, describing him as her “soul mate”. Ms Bela opened up about her extraordinary adventure with her cosmic hosts in an interview with the Daily Star’s Lucy Notarantonio.
She said: “I am sick of men from Earth.
“I joked online about wanting an alien to abduct me.
“I then started dreaming every night of a white light.
Ms Bela views herself as a pioneer for women on earth, as she looks to challenge social norms.
She said there should be no stigmas attached to dating an alien and that she wanted to be the first to “normalise” such relations.
“I’m willing to give it a go – I’m going to be one of the first to normalise it,” she declared.
The US Department of Defense (DoD) is expected to present its so-called Pentagon UFO report to the US Congress this month. The highly anticipated document is set to reveal what US intelligence agencies know about UFOs or, according to official jargon, UAPs. A slew of recently leaked UFO videos filmed by US military staff has reignited public interest in the UFO phenomenon, with former presidents, lawmakers and politicians joining the conversation.
He has now revealed he thinks the encounter would be profound for humanity as a whole but would not change his personal outlook on politics.
He said: “It’s interesting. It wouldn’t change my politics at all.
“Because my entire politics is premised on the fact that we are these tiny organisms on this little speck floating in the middle of space.”
Mr Obama went on to say his political beliefs are predicated upon the idea “the differences we have on this planet are real” and they can be a great source of joy and misery.
He added: “We’re just a bunch of humans with doubts and confusion.”
But throwing aliens into the mix promises to shake things up, which Mr Obama thinks may benefit or further divide humanity, with new religions popping up to deal with the paradigm shift.
The question of are we alone in the universe has been one of the most pressing scientific quandaries of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Mr Obama hopes meeting aliens will help people find some common ground, saying: “And I would hope that the knowledge that there are aliens out there would solidify people’s sense that what we have in common is a little more important.
“But no doubt, there would be immediate arguments about, well, we need to spend a lot more money on weapons systems to defend ourselves.
“And new religions would pop up, and who knows what kind of arguments we’d get into.
Cathy Fox claimed she saw the big cat in Prestatyn, North Wales on May 1. She was in the passenger seat of a car when she saw a creature with “small ears and a long tail” lurking in the bushes near the railway line.
Ms Fox described the creature she spotted as a “jet black, huge, cat-like animal”, according to the Rhyl Journal.
She reported the sighting to Puma Watch North Wales, and said: “I was in Prestatyn on Saturday afternoon and saw a jet black huge cat-like animal, small ears long tail, in the growth at the side of the train tracks.
“It was at Prestatyn train station I was a passenger in the car as we drove over the bridge over the tracks I saw it in the undergrowth.
It marks the latest suspected big cat sighting in North Wales. Earlier this month, a couple said they saw a creature running alongside the A5104 near Llandegla.
Alexandra Williams said she and her husband saw a “huge black cat running across a field” while driving into Llandegla from Flintshire.
She added: “It was definitely a big cat and we can only assume it was a puma.”
In April, there were four separate sightings of a creature described as a big cat along the A5 between Chirk and Oswestry.
Tony Jones, founder of Puma Watch North Wales, told the Rhyl Journal he had asked police to confirm the report.
Tony said: “Earlier this year, footprints of a suspected big cat were found in nearby Dyserth and also in hills above Meliden. There have also been multiple sightings a few miles along the coast in the Talacre area.
“Big cats such as pumas are solitary with a hunting range of dozens of miles.
“They’re mostly spotted in Snowdonia and the Clwydian hills but reports of sightings in urban locations some distance from these areas are becoming more frequent.”
The legendary racing commentator has sadly passed away at the age of 97, after becoming one of the most iconic voices in British sporting history. For 52 years Walker delivered commentary, following in the footsteps of father Graham in taking up the mic on motor sports. His career was hugely successful, and from the Seventies, he would earn acclaim for his pulsating reports on Formula One.
Throughout his career, Walker commentated on some of the greatest names the sport has ever produced, including seven-time champion Michael Schumacher.
But in a throwback report, Walker discussed his first encounter with the driver he once described as the greatest of all time.
Speaking last year to the Telegraph, Walker said: “It’s amazing to think first time I met Lewis he was at the Autosport Awards in whatever year it was, and he came up to about my knee, and he had a dinner jacket and a black tie on, and his autograph book, and he wanted my autograph.”
Hamilton has since gone on to become a seven-time champion himself, and as a result one of the world’s most recognisable, and wealthy, sportspeople.

And for Walker, although it was a difficult decision to choose who was the best, Hamilton may have edged it.
He said: “People ask me who is the greatest of all time and I always say ‘Look, you really can’t compare drivers of one generation with drivers of another, because the regulations are different, the circuits are different, the cars are different and the competition is different.
“But having said all that, in a situation where I used to unhesitatingly say ‘Fangio – five world championships, they’re never going to beat that’, and then it was ‘[Michael] Schumacher – seven world championships’.
“And people talk about [Ayrton] Senna. Well actually I think Hamilton actually can be called ‘greater’ – in inverted commas – than the last two for one very simple reason, and that is their driving tactics. Schumacher and Senna were not always irreproachable. Hamilton has always been as clean as a whistle.

“I have a great deal of admiration and respect for him.”
Walker became known for his iconic commentary pairing with James Hunt, up until the former racing champion’s death in 1993.
To mark the 20th anniversary of Hunt’s death, Murray told the BBC how the pair “were oil and water” which “seemed to work as a commentator mix”.
He detailed how there was “often a lot of friction in the commentary box” which came as a result of the pair have to share just one microphone.

Recalling one particularly incident at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, Murray added: “I had been talking for what James thought was too long and he wanted to say something.
“He grabbed hold of the microphone wire and gave it a good jerk. The microphone flew out of my hands and into his. He started talking and I was absolutely incandescent with rage.
“I actually had my fist back to thump him but I looked across the commentary box and our producer was wagging his finger at me – and I got a ‘no, no, no!’ expression on his face.
“The blow never landed – and it’s just as well as it would have broken up a great friendship.”

Such was Walker’s standing in the sport, after he completed his last ever Formula One television commentary in the US in 2001, a dinner to mark his career was attended by megastars like Schumacher.
Tributes for the icon have flooded in since the news of his death was confirmed on Saturday by the British Racing Drivers’ Club.
In a statement, the group said: “It’s with great sadness we share the news of the passing of BRDC Associate Member Murray Walker OBE.
“A friend, a true motorsport legend, the nations favourite commentator and a contagious smile.
“We thank Murray for all he has done for our community.
