Alien hunter spots another anomaly on Mars a monkey

first_imgET Data BasePopular Taiwanese alien hunter Scott C Waring has spotted many anomalies from NASA images over the past few years. Some of the anomalies spotted by Scott C Waring from NASA’s Mars images seemed so convincing, and it had made many people believe that aliens are living on the Red Planet. Now, Waring has released another NASA image from the Mars, that apparently shows a monkey sitting on the Red Planet’s surface.After spotting the monkey on Mars, Waring alleged that NASA may have never visited Mars, and these visuals might have been shot from Devon Island. As per Waring, if the picture was captured originally from Mars, then it could be proof of alien life on the Red Planet.”I found the original and the monkey is in it…this is 100% proof that the photo has not been tampered with. But now we have other problems. Is the rover on Devon Island in Canada? Are there monkeys on Devon island? Maybe, but not sure. Maybe NASA brought the monkey to experiment on it in the Martian environment. Maybe it could be a form of animal life on Mars. Who knows? The only way to find out, is for the public to go there,” wrote Waring on his website.A few days back, Waring has released an image that shows a bird flying in the Martian skies. The image shared by Waring went viral on social media platforms, and it compelled many people to believe that NASA is hiding some sinister secrets from the general public.Even though followers of Waring are pretty much impressed about the self-proclaimed researcher’s finding, skeptics reveal that the discoveries of Waring are classic cases of pareidolia. As per experts, pareidolia is a peculiar capability of the human brain to form recognizable images on unknown patterns.Earlier, after spotting fossil-like structures on images taken by NASA from Mars, Waring had urged United States president Donald Trump to appoint him as the head of NASA. Waring also claimed that all the secrets regarding alien life will be disclosed if he gets a chance to work as the head of the United States space agency.last_img read more

first_imgLogos of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) are displayed at the venue of the annual general meeting of the software services provider in Mumbai, June 29, 2012.ReutersTata Consultancy Services has doubled the normal salary for freshers who have new-age digital skills.The Indian MNC is now offering up to Rs 6.5 lakh per annum compared to the Rs 3.5 lakh per annum it was offering until now.However, this is only for engineering freshers with new-age digital skills on which they will be tested before they are offered the job. They will have to sit for the National Qualifier’s Test where they would take the digital skills-based examination, according to TOI.”The NQT was open to graduates and postgraduates of the 2019 batch, across engineering colleges in India. This re-imagination of the campus hiring process, using sophisticated technology platforms, has transformed traditional recruitment models and reinforces TCS’ philosophy of being an equal opportunity employer,” TCS said according to a PTI report.TCS has had a 175 percent increase in test applications than before after the NQT was announced.”People who have done well in the NQT will get a chance to write another test for the digital talent pool, and if they clear and go through the interview, then they will get into the digital pool and their compensation will be differentiated,” Ajoy Mukherjee, executive VP and head of global human resources reports TOI.The test by TCS is longer and more difficult than the NQT and requires coding skills and a basic knowledge of artificial intelligence, machine learning and data intelligence. The exam will also test the candidates programming skills.last_img read more
