What is this mysterious black ring in the sky

Screenshot from YouTube user tutlinkvideo

Eerie footage has emerged showing a mysterious 100 metre-wide black ring of smoke floating over clear skies in Kazakhstan - convincing locals it was caused by a UFO.
The clip was filmed on Saturday in Shortandy village, 40 miles north of the capital Astana, and captures the cloud hovering in the sky for 15 minutes before suddenly vanishing without trace.
The video has been viewed more than 50,000 times since being uploaded to YouTube, prompting all manner of bizarre explanations for the phenomenon - with many seemingly convinced it is definitive proof of extra-terrestrial life.

Unidentified black ring

The same ring was also reportedly captured by a 16-year-old schoolgirl with her smartphone in Leamington-Spa after she played tennis with her mother. The ring - which appeared to be close to Warwick Castle - remained in the sky for around three minutes before vanishing, it has been reported.
Several different theories were put forward as to what the ring could be. Some people speculated whether it would be possible to fake the video. In theory you can fake most things, says Iain McArthur, an expert at Audio Video Forensics. For instance, the footage wobbles. You can fake this handheld look. But other elements seem to ring true, he says. There's a "blob" on the top right and top left of the ring, suggesting movement - "something organic", he says. It's not clear how far away the ring is from the smartphone. The video footage is blurred at the sides. But he doesn't think it is suspicious. "Initially it doesn't look like it's faked." It's not like other video of unexplained sightings - in particular the hazy edges to the black circle. "The blurring element is different from any UFO footage I've seen," McArthur says.
Other people thought it might have been a strange weather phenomenon. But that's not so, according to the Met Office. "There's no meteorological reason why it's happened. And there was nothing unusual happening in Leamington Spa that day, we've checked," a Met Office spokeswoman says. The shape is said to have remained in the sky for three minutes. And it's very rare that a cloud circle "that perfect" would remain without being blown away at that height.

Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.

The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.

A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
