July 27, 1998 -- Washington, DC --  “The Paradigm Clock” has
been reset to 11:56:30.

Modeled after the "Doomsday Clock" first published in 1947 by
the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists, the Paradigm Clock is a
device designed to represent the proximity to disclosure by the
U. S. government of the extraterrestrial presence - midnight.
It is located at the official website of the Paradigm Research
Group:  http://www.paradigmclock.com

The Clock website was published to the world wide web April 30,
1998 along with a retroactive history dating back to 1947.   The
1947 setting was 11:53:00, the same as the Doomsday Clock.  As
of April 30, 1998 the setting was 11:57:00.

Based upon events in May - July, the clock has been regressed a
net 30 seconds to a new time of 11:56:30.  These events and the
impact on the clock setting are as follows:

7/16 - Col. Philip Corso, author of The Day After Roswell, dies
of a heart attack in Florida and is no longer available to
personally defend the allegations in his memoir.   < 20 sec

6/29 - The Society for Scientific Exploration publishes its
analysis of major UFO incidents and calls for new investigations
and attention by the mainstream scientific community.   > 20 sec

May/June - in spite of pressure from the public and activist
organizations, no further Cydonia photos are to be taken until
the spring of 1999 by the Mars Global Surveyor.  < 20 sec

6/1 - Col. Philip Corso, author of  The Day After Roswell, signs
an affidavit in support of the Citizens Against UFO Secrecy
(CAUS) FOIA lawsuit against the Army, and legally attests to the
veracity of the allegations in his memoir.   > 10 sec

May - The major media fail to thoroughly cover the three new
Mars Global Surveyor photos of the Cydonia region of Mars,
dismissing the artificiality hypothesis based upon the first,
low resolution image of the "Face."  < 20 sec
