This message was found via the Portal Network in Okinawa just moments after the Enlightened laid claim to the #Abaddon Anomaly that took place there on December 12, 2015.
Research had uncovered that ADA's fate was entwined with this Anomaly, as Roland Jarvis and Ezekiel Calvin's fate were connected to Anomalies in Milan and Oakland later that day.
There have been no additional messages or transmissions from ADA since this incident
A drone crashed a few feets away from Marcel Hirscher on live TV (ORF Eines) during the ski Word Cup in Italy.
Update: In an interview on TV at the end of the race the guys in charge with this stun said in Italy is ok to fly and they had a corridor flying over the slope only not over people... and since skier are not considered people I guess it's all good ツ
The hexacopter that crashed was a cinestar 8 with redundant power.
Location: Madonna di Campiglio - Italy
When a zombie plague washes up on the shores of America from England, small town miser Edna Scrooge (Claudia Sulewski) finds herself terrorized by her own past present and future. The most spine-chilling Christmas Eve horror story since Charles Dickens’ original A Christmas Carol.

Almost 100 years of media experience, these two free spirit chat& new Shades Of Bad star is revealed.
Episode 31 is now live and next week, on Boxing Day, is the episode which guest stars James Whale.
Whilst I try and embed many interesting pictures, videos and links to my blogs, this blog in particular is actually part of group of items which work together. A new video interview and two radio interviews, all are interesting, one reveals the secret of the season 3 star to Shades Of Bad. So I will try not repeat the content here as they are worth a visit. I will embed their links.
James Whale is a broadcasting legend, he is an outspoken broadcaster who has been on the radio somewhere for over 45years and currently presents the Breakfast Show on BBC Radio Essex as well as an independent show that is circulated both on the web and to many many radio stations around the world. He had his own late night TV show for many years on ITV and is now often seen with other guests on the Sunday morning TV chat shows and others.
Like many broadcasters James trained as an actor, but in 1969 did a broadcasting coarse and I guess you could say that changed his career. But not so many years ago James was told he had little time to live because he had what was thought to be a huge inoperable kidney cancer. That changed his life. After being encouraged to come out of a shell he hid in for a while, by a good friend Luke Goss, he and his wife decided to travel, enjoy and spend both money and time together. He then survived and his life changed again. James now runs a kidney cancer charity which I draw him to discuss in the video interview we did in Doris Shades garden.
James and I met in 1978. I was at the BBC, sitting on the bench at Radio 1 waiting for the show it was becoming obvious I would not get any time soon. I had spent some time on air at Radio London but the offer of moving north for the Metro Radio Breakfast Show took little time to consider. James
Between us, James and I have nearly 100 years in the media industry, often
being pioneers and certainly covering some ground when you look at the two cv's together. As friends we have stayed in touch and I always support his charity as we did with the premiere of the Status Quo romp movie Bula Quo at the Odeon in Leicester Square. James appears as Detective Inspector James Whale in the Boxing Day episode of Shades Of Bad and straight after this weeks wedding, who has he come to arrest and why, and what happens afterwards starts to shock. Hey, it is Shades Of Bad, the infectious very dark series. If you are not up to date I suggest you catch up, or jump in at about episode 23 and get the run in to why the police knock on Doris's door.
Having James on the show has not been a secret as we did a behind the scenes video some time ago revealing his shoot day as well as Doris being sent abroad to Norway and Barcelona. James also spoke with me then or about 30 minutes on his radio show about many things past and present and if you have not heard it it is worth a listen. My interview starts about 30 minutes in.
Those foreign shoots, Norway and Barcelona, were not for the travel spin off series DORIS VISITS that we now have although we might well try and cut the Norway footage if the outtakes work as a travel video. James came in and instantly became part of the team in a professional manner, and he a Jean who plays Doris spent time working on the content of the episode.
Episode 32 comes out on Boxing Day, and the video will be listed that day if not a few hours earlier.
James and I again spoke on his radio show, and this Christmas week show of the James Whale show is where I reveal who we are currently filming with; the new star of Shades Of Bad. The new star I have said is our answer to Idris Elba, an actor we have discovered who is already a star in many areas. If you wish to know who it is you will have to listen to Jame's show.
So, James turns the old year into a new one and we start to look forward. Our three trainee serial killers do have to deal with dead bodies in 2016 and Doris is head hunted by our new star for greater crimes and it is him that sends her to Norway. The UK side of three of those episodes we shoot after Christmas. Then we travel to the Three Valleys with an open book on shooting new episodes of Doris Vists, a relaxed exploring approach to a travel show. If you have not watched any of those yet they will make you want to travel. Have a look at Key West of the beautiful island of Bequia.
Jean now has her own travel blogs so if you prefer to read, here is her blog on the Miami visit.
I must offer again our Christmas message, which along with the shows twisted view on crime and a society with an odd modern remorse, the Christmas message takes an indirect 'Doris' like pop at the commercialism of Christmas. I hope it makes you smile but do have a great end to the year and a fantastic start to the new one.
In closing, take a moment to listen to the two James Whale internet radio shows while you are doing things around the house, and some other episodes that do not focus on Shades Of Bad. James does make you think and he sometimes makes you angry. The sign of a great broadcaster.
The Video Behind The Scenes Interview.
And in closing can I ask you go to the chart site and vote for us, Shades Of Bad.

Hi WebSeriesToday folks,
I wanted to let you know that we just launched a new site that will help you get the word out about your web shows/series.
It's called HypeScreen and it compiles all the best web shows from across the net and categorizing them so they're easy to find. You can also vote, comment and add them to your favorites.
It's called HypeScreen and it looks something like this (link below)...
There's a SCRIPTED category that I think is super interesting for web series lovers and producers. There are already a bunch of really good web series in there and you can easily get yours on there via the 'Add a Show' link.
We also started a blog called The HypeScreen Report that posts reviews, lists and other news about the web shows you'll find on HypeScreen. It's here: https://hypescreenreport.wordpress.com/.
Since I think some of these blog posts will be interesting to you guys, I'll post them here as well but if you're interested in following us directly, please like us on Facebook & Twitter or sign-up for our newsletter on the HypeScreen site.
Thanks for your support!

Flash Pulp is an experiment in broadcasting fresh pulp stories in the modern age – three to ten minutes of fiction brought to you Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings.
From all the many film screenings vying for our votes with wine receptions, to balls, to dance functions there is another event which has been annual for many years: to visit Status Quo, normally at the 02. The arena was packed with a faithful audience dancing and singing their hearts out. The band were on good form. I have been watching them again since we re-met in 2005 on Coronation Street and I proposed making a film together. The cast went .......
I was at the O2 with Jean, who now plays Doris Shades in Shades Of Bad for which she won best actress this year.
In Bula Quo Doris / Jean played Reiko Best the TV news anchor. Also at the Quo concert was our daughter Laura Aikman and partner Matt Kennard who were also both in Fiji with us in Bula Quo, Laura played Caroline and Matt played the reporter, Dave.
new Caroline song .... The film Bula Quo is still available worldwide and we are just closing a sales deal with Metrodome for it's TV sales as well as the (possible) sequel Namaste Quo which is still muted to film 2017 or 2018. The Fijian mash up brought a Hawaiian / Fijian feel to the classical score with acoustic versions of some of their great hits including Down Down and Whatever You Want. That spurned the Acoustic period. The plan for Namaste Quo is to fuse with Bollywood and introduce sitar rock fusion. You should always have dreams to stretch the future even when some feel safer in the past and that will be fun if it ever happens. It was fun writing the first script, touring India and doing the recce! I watched the concert last night thinking I can see two really hot rock chics playing electric violins and singing backing vocals adding to that line up. We will see, they sometimes listen to my crazy ideas.
I first met Quo and many of the old record industry people in the backstage 02 bar when I was a radio DJ back in the 1970's and spent a time working at EMI in marketing and promotion. It meant another
night of festive fun was with the Knordoff Robbins boxing night at
the Hilton. Jean (Doris) has never been to a boxing night, but her friend Grace Kennedy was there with her partner Nigel Angel the media lawyer and they chatted and talked with other celebs like John Conteh and Ian Wright rather than watching the fights. I should just say here that another night this Christmas week is a gig with the Mick Flinn Band, he the lead singer of the Mixtures who had a hit with The Pushbike Song etc .. and his wife Donna Flinn (who plays Elsie in Shades Of Bad) will no doubt sing. As they both joined The New Seekers (I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing etc) for many years with original band members Marty Kristain and Paul Leyton, I expect to see them there. When as a DJ on Metro Radio in 1978 with James Whale (who appears in Shades Of Bad on Boxing Day) I introduced The New Seekers on stage at the Tyneside Summer Exhibition. I later met Mick at parties where myself, Colin Cook and Davey Jones of the Monkees would site on the work surface in the kitchen, probably as that brought us up to the same height as the others... almost.
We are trying to set a shoot day between Christmas and new year to get at least another three episodes in the can with our new (as yet not revealed) star, but getting dates of busy people is not easy. On the 9th we take the camera skiing in the Three Valleys so that will be the next batch of travel films. Episode 30 is now live, two to go to James Whale.
Sorry, this turned into a little reminisce, but then you do at Christmas....
Here is our Christmas message ... merry Christmas - Happy Holidays
