Hot News or Hoax?

Ancient Egyptians used helicopters and airplanes for battles? by Pravda. (English)
Well-known Egyptologist Alan Alford left to the Nile banks to study the Abydos mystery. The researcher studied the mysterious hieroglyphs and made sure that what seemed absolutely incredible was in fact quite real. Alford told journalists that ancient Egyptians had depicted a real helicopter model as if they made the engravings from life.
With a little help from their Martian ancestors, no doubt.

How the dead live by The Telegraph. (English)
The book elaborates Tibetan Buddhist teaching on the journey of the consciousness through the three stages, or bardos, of dying; the moment of death, the intermediate state between death and rebirth, and the process of rebirth itself. Central to the text is the belief that death presents the greatest opportunity to gain liberation, and so to step off the endless wheel of suffering that is held to characterise worldly existence.
For the first time in 1,300 years, the great Tibetan Book of the Dead has been translated into English. Mick Brown reports.
Available in Jan-Feb 2006. Definitely one for the serious bookshelf.
