A woman performed graphic sex acts multiple times inside at least two branches of the Windsor Public Library over a three-month period and streamed it all live online, CBC News has learned.
The woman, who appears to be in her twenties and used the screen name “lilsecrett,” streamed video of herself flashing her breasts, masturbating and using sex toys in front of a webcam while seated at the Riverside and Fontainebleau branches of the library.
The shows happened between November of last year and the end of January.
CBC News has determined that during the three-month span, the woman streamed at least 52 performances from libraries in the border town of Windsor, Ont. — 49 at the Riverside branch and three atFontainebleau. Some performances lasted as long as three hours.
The Windsor Police Service is aware of at least one video, but is not investigating.
CBC News has found 52 videos featuring the woman, including one in which she shoos a toddler away, archived online and for purchase.
Some of the scenes are graphic while in others the woman quickly covers up her breasts with a shirt or coat and tamely interacts with library users before continuing to perform when they leave.
During the shows, lilsecrett was performing for and interacting with an online audience in a chat room on the website MyFreeCams.com.
MyFreeCams is an online porn site on which models perform live sex shows. Viewers ask and pay the models to perform particular acts — sometimes in specific places.
On a couple of occasions, lilsecrett interacts with children and other library users in a non-sexual nature.
In one video, she’s interrupted by a girl, who appears to be about seven years old, and tells her she should go find her parents. The child eventually leaves and lilsecrett once again resumes her sex show.
In another, while asking a man for a pen, lilscrett lifts her skirt and shows her buttocks to her online audience without the man knowing.
According to the website’s rules for models, unauthorized people, minors, children and babies may not be on camera or in the same room.
“The particular model in question was terminated for violation of company policy,” MyFreeCams lawyer Lawrence G. Walters said of lilsecrett in an email to CBC. “Since these are internal personnel matters, our client does not publicly discuss the reasons for specific contract terminations.”
Library aware of ‘inappropriate behaviour’
Windsor Public Library CEO Kitty Pope is not aware of any sex shows being streamed from any branch, but she did say a complaint was made about a woman taking photos of her genitalia.
After watching two videos shown to her by CBC, Pope believes the woman who was taking photos may have been lilsecrett. Pope said library staff banned the woman who was taking photos at the Riverside branch.
“We’ve asked her to leave from this facility for inappropriate behaviour,” she said during an interview at the Riverside branch. “We were notified by a customer that there was inappropriate behaviour happening here.
“The next time the patron came in, we notified her that kind of behaviour was not appropriate in a public place and she was to leave. That’s all we’ve heard.”
She said police were notified of the incident “but they didn’t have a lot to go on.”
She said she will once again contact police.
“We’ll be referring it to the police right away,” Pope said. “Certainly the staff, the board and the police will do everything in their power to make sure the Windsor Public Library is a safe place for everybody.”
No complaints made to police
Staff Sgt. Brad Hill said he is not aware of any formal complaint made to police.

“If we had a complaint it could possibly be an indecent act,” he said. “Is it morally incorrect? Certainly. But we have to investigate what we get reported to us.
“If we got a call to the library that this person was there, patrol would have responded to the library and dealt with it firsthand.”
A woman who goes by the name JuJu performed on MyFreeCams.com for a few months, during the same time period lilsecrett used the site. JuJu, who asked that her real name not be used because she fears for her safety, said she isn’t surprised by the public sex shows.
“These types of public shows have become very, very popular, and very lucrative,” she said.
Some audience members tip larger amounts of money for more public and risky behaviour, she said.
JuJu is concerned about public sex shows being streamed online and unintentionally showing children.
“It makes me feel like pedophiles and sex offenders can now buy that video and sit there and get their rocks off while these children are running around in this video,” she said.
Not child porn
The appearance of a child also concerns Const. Shawn Diotte of the Windsor Police Service’s internet child exploitation unit.
“My biggest concern is the fact there were children in the library at the time when this was going on. That isn’t material that children that age should be seeing,” he said.
However, the video isn’t child pornography, he said.
“The child is not involved in the explicit sex act, the child just so happens to be in the background. It doesn’t make it right. However, it doesn’t fall into child pornography,” Diotte said.
Zakir Naik, a renowned Indian Islamic scholar and an authority on comparative religion, has received one of Saudi Arabia’s most prestigious prizes from the country’s new King Salman for his service to Islam.
He is the same man who had earlier said that ‘Quran allows Muslims to have sex with female slaves’.
Naik has been frequently at odds with the West for his views on terrorism.
In 2010, Britain had banned Naik from entering the country, citing his “unacceptable behaviour”.
Naik had reportedly said Muslims should beware of people saying Osama bin Laden was right or wrong, adding: “If you ask my view, if given the truth, if he is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him.”
In a story published in Mail Online, he was qouted as saying, ” ‘There are many verses in the Quran which say you can have sex with your wife and with whatever your right hand possesses.”
“Right hand possesses,” he went on. “Which means your slaves.”
King Salman presented the King Faisal International Prize (KFIP) 2015 in five categories on Sunday at a glittering awards ceremony in Riyadh.
The KFIP recognises the outstanding works of individuals and institutions in five categories — Service to Islam, Islamic Studies, Arabic Language and Literature, Medicine and Science.
Each prize consists of a handwritten Arabic certificate on the laureate’s achievements, a commemorative 24-carat 200-gramme gold medal and a cheque of USD 200,000.
“Islam is the only religion that can bring peace to the whole of humanity,” Naik said in a video biography aired at the ceremony.
Mumbai-born Naik, 49, is the president of the Islamic Research Foundation in India and one of the world’s most renowned non-Arabic speaking Islamic scholars.
He was awarded the KFIP for his services to Islam for a lifetime’s teaching about Islam, his work on comparative religion and for founding the Peace Channel, a comparative religion TV channel.
Jordan Meier was traveling with three passengers around 9 PM when a Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over his 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo on a Lincoln street for a traffic violation, according to a police report.
Meier was subsequently “placed into custody for DUI,” investigators noted.
During a post-arrest inventory search of Meier’s vehicle, cops located a 16-ounce plastic container (which once held Land O’Lakes sour cream) under the front passenger seat.
But when deputies opened the container, they found more than 11 grams of marijuana inside. As a result, Meier (seen at right) was also cited for pot possession.
In an interview, Meier told TSG that he was on line at a drive-thru Saturday afternoon when he removed a Sharpie marker from his pocket and wrote on the plastic container. Asked why, he replied, “I don’t know…I thought I was being funny. Inside joke with myself, I suppose.” He added, “Never thinking it would be confiscated.”
According to Meier’s Facebook page, he has attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and works at a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop.
The truth is out there … well, a large portion of the truth, anyway.
Project Blue Book began in 1947 under the name Project Sign. It evolved into Project Grudge, and then finally took the name Blue Book in 1952. After 22 years of official investigations of thousands of UFO reports, the project was terminated in 1969.
Of the 12,618 sightings considered under Blue Book, 701 have remained “unidentified” — suggesting to UFO researchers the possibility that those incidents could have involved ETs, or extraterrestrials. Others will say that those incidents are purely inconclusive.
The final conclusions of Project Blue Book were:
1) No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force has ever given any indication of threat to our national security
2) There has been no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as “unidentified” represent technological developments or principles beyond the range of present-day scientific knowledge
3) There has been no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as “unidentified” are extraterrestrial vehicles.
Retired Air Force Col. Robert Friend was the director of Project Blue Book from 1958 to 1963. Despite the fact that Blue Book was terminated in 1969, Friend told The Huffington Post in 2012 that he thought the UFO issue should have been turned over to scientists, who could best determine what was behind the more unusual reports.
“When I first took over the program, I wrote two staff studies, and in both instances, I recommended that [UFOs] be put into another agency which would give them full scientific investigations and analyses,” Friend said.
“I think that anytime there’s a possibility of scientific pay dirt from studying these phenomena that, yes, it would be much better if the government or some other agency was to take on these things and to pursue the scientific aspects of it,” he added.
For many years, the declassified Project Blue Book documents resided on microfilm at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. (pictured below). If a person wanted to research those documents, it was necessary to travel to Washington, sit at a bulky microfilm projector and scan through many individual rolls of film to find what he or she was looking for — a task this reporter performed many times during the 1970s and ’80s.
Now, thanks to the efforts of individual researchers, anyone can peruse the huge volume of Project Blue Book files on his or her personal computer, and at no charge.
A person who goes by the nickname “Xtraeme” compiled the original 130,000 Blue Book files into JPEG images. Television producer and writer John Greenewald followed up on Xtraeme’s results and converted the files from JPEG pages into searchable PDF files.
“After quite a while, I figured out a computer script that would actually convert 130,000 essentially pictures into a little over 10,000 PDFs,” Greenewald told HuffPost. “It took two to three weeks of nonstop computer processing time. I was then able to program the website and ultimately create a search engine that dives into those 10,000 PDFs.”
The resulting Project Blue Book Collection lets anyone explore the thousands of original Air Force UFO files, and includes the option to search for things by year or by keyword.
Greenewald knows a thing or two about unearthing government and military files. Nearly 20 years ago, armed with Freedom of Information Act requests, he created The Black Vault, one of the world’s largest compilations of government documents related to UFOs and conspiracies of all types. The Black Vault now consists of more than 1.4 million pages of information.
“The complete Blue Book files have never been available before with this much accessibility,” Greenewald said. “The disclosure and declassification of Project Blue Book is not necessarily new, but the fact that there’s a searchable database of it, where you can go in by decade and then see a listing of all the cities without having to go through any hassle of registering, or even paying — that’s the part that’s new.”

Greenewald, who’s featured on the syndicated “Unsealed: Alien Files” series, cautions people not to assume or hope to find a paper trail in the Project Blue Book Collection that leads to declarations that UFOs are alien visitors.
“It’s exciting that we can now go through and see the 22-year history of what the government and the military did to investigate the UFO phenomenon,” he said. “If you’re looking for a smoking gun, that’s not necessarily going to be there in the sense that they’re going to say aliens are here, they’ve been over our skies and here’s an example. You’re not going to find that.”
One of the best-known and strongest UFO cases from the Blue Book files involved Lonnie Zamora, a reliable police officer who witnessed an unknown craft and two short beings in Socorro, New Mexico, on April 24, 1964.
While chasing a speeding car, Zamora heard a loud roar and saw a flame rising in the air. When he turned his attention to the commotion, thinking it had something to do with a nearby dynamite shack, he noticed a shiny object, which he first thought was an overturned car. Zamora quickly realized this was, in fact, an egg-shaped craft, with an odd, red-colored insignia and no doors or window. It was the size of an average car.
This is one of the sketches Zamora made for the original Blue Book files:
He then observed two beings, who appeared to be dressed in overalls and seemed startled by Zamora’s presence. The police officer heard a loud sound, saw a blue-colored flame underneath the craft, and finally saw it take off in a straight line for several miles.
Adding credibility to this case were other eyewitnesses at different locations, who also reported seeing the unusual craft in the sky. Plus, investigators — including Air Force personnel, the FBI and Project Blue Book’s scientific consultant, astronomer J. Allen Hynek — thought that Zamora had, in fact, observed something they couldn’t easily explain.
The investigation also yielded evidence in the form of landing marks and footprints, as well as scorched brush around the area where Zamora said the object was sitting on the ground. In the end, both the object and the two beings that Zamora described were deemed “unidentified.”
Here’s the original Project Blue Book case card that indicates a conclusion of “unidentified” as well as “unknown”:
“What’s interesting about this is you start going through the Blue Book documents and you realize just how serious the government and the military took these records,” said Greenewald. “You might also start to question whether or not their label — their definition and explanation — of whatever these UFO cases were, you start to question whether or not they’re right. They could say it’s the planet Venus or swamp gas. Well, who’s to say it was? Just because they say something is true, doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s actually true.”
Project Blue Book ended in 1969, with the Air Force declaring there was nothing significant about UFOs that posed a threat to America’s security or was worthy of any scientific investigation. And while those massive files were eventually declassified and are now easily accessible online, Greenewald suggested there’s still more to the story of UFOs.
“When you use the Freedom of Information Act and see the documents that come from outside of the Blue Book system, past the 1969 closure of Blue Book, you look at those things and you realize there is a much bigger picture here — UFOs are notexplainable like they wanted to say. This is something very serious — it’s a big threat, and something that the government and military still take seriously, even to this day.”
Echoing Greenewald’s contention of an ongoing high-level interest in UFOs is former Air Force Col. Charles Halt, who has accused the U.S. government of a UFO coverup. Halt was one of numerous eyewitnesses to several UFO-related events in 1980 at dual military bases in the U.K. — RAF Bentwaters and RAF Woodbridge — in the Rendlesham Forest.
“I’m firmly convinced there’s an agency and an effort to suppress,” Halt told an audience in 2012 at the Smithsonian-affiliated National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas.
“I’ve heard many people say that it’s time for the government to appoint an agency to investigate. Folks, there is an agency, a very close-held, compartmentalized agency that’s been investigating this for years, and there’s a very active role played by many of our intelligence agencies that probably don’t even know the details of what happens once they collect the data and forward it. It’s kind of scary, isn’t it?”
Human waste left by climbers on Mount Everest has become a problem that is causing pollution and threatening to spread disease on the world’s highest peak, the chief of Nepal’s mountaineering association said Tuesday.
The more than 700 climbers and guides who spend nearly two months on Everest’s slopes each climbing season leave large amounts of feces and urine, and the issue has not been addressed, Ang Tshering told reporters. He said Nepal’s government needs to get the climbers to dispose of the waste properly so the mountain remains pristine.
Hundreds of foreign climbers attempt to scale Everest during Nepal’s mountaineering season, which began this week and runs through May. Last year’s season was canceled after 16 local guides were killed in an avalanche in April.
Climbers spend weeks acclimatizing around the four camps set up between the base camp at 5,300 meters (17,380 feet) and the 8,850-meter-high (29,035-foot-high) summit. The camps have tents and some essential equipment and supplies, but do not have toilets.
“Climbers usually dig holes in the snow for their toilet use and leave the human waste there,” Tshering said, adding that the waste has been “piling up” for years around the four camps.
At the base camp, where there are more porters, cooks and support staff during the climbing season, there are toilet tents with drums to store the waste. Once filled, the drums are carried to a lower area, where the waste is properly disposed.
Dawa Steven Sherpa, who has been leading Everest cleanup expeditions since 2008, said some climbers carry disposable travel toilet bags to use in the higher camps.
“It is a health hazard and the issue needs to be addressed,” he said.
Nepal’s government has not come up with a plan yet to tackle the issue of human waste. But starting this season, officials stationed at the base camp will strictly monitor garbage on the mountain, said Puspa Raj Katuwal, the head of the government’s Mountaineering Department.
The government imposed new rules last year requiring each climber to bring down to the base camp 8 kilograms (18 pounds) of trash — the amount it estimates a climber discards along the route.
Climbing teams must leave a $4,000 deposit that they lose if they don’t comply with the regulations, Katuwal said.
More than 4,000 climbers have scaled Mount Everest since 1953, when it was first conquered by New Zealand climber Edmund Hillary and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay. Hundreds of others have died in the attempt, while many have succeeded only with help from oxygen tanks, equipment porters and Sherpa guides.
The Booty Drum is a high-tech musical device that, unlike most instruments, isn’t operated by your hands, but by tour butt cheeks ! All you need to do is attach the drum to your behind, start twerking, and let it transform your movements into beats.
The device was created by headphone brand AIAIAI, in an attempt to give their users some “new music to enjoy on their headphones or on the dance floor.” They wanted to make a unique music track from scratch, using nothing but body movements. So they teamed up with Portuguese electronic musician Branko, professional dancer Twerk Queen Louise, and OWOW, a Dutch design and technology company to create something really unique. Together, the team took the widely popular twerk dance and converted it into an instrument in its own right.
Once firmly attached to the derriere, the Booty Drum records the dancer’s movements via accelerometers. “These movements translate into a lot of unique velocities and directions of movement,” Owow said. “The movements, which are being mapped into unique MIDI values through Arduino hardware and processing software, can in this way be used to trigger samples and create sounds in Ableton. As every single movement sends out a unique set of values, the dancer is able to play around with sounds.”
“The project explores the rich heritage of bass-driven club culture where dancing and booty-shaking are integral elements,” the makers further explained. “We want to see if it’s possible to change the perception of twerking through placing it in a technology-driven, creative context and letting the dance do the talking.”
