Zero Point and Dimensions –The Founders

Messages from the Founders
Earth Changes and 2012
Received by Sal Rachele
Second Message
October 2007

Our previous message was a brief summary of what is taking place on Earth and within the solar system. Today we would like to discuss how and why the electromagnetic null zone, or Galactic Shift, is a catalyst for ascension and massive changes, within the Earth herself and within human beings and other life forms.

As stated previously, at some point this channel will incorporate artwork, diagrams and tables to help portray the ideas being generated here. We understand most of you rely on a more visual approach, and as we have stated numerous times, your language is very limited and does not have adequate words and phrases to describe many of these ideas. For now, we will attempt to transmit the understandings regarding the density and dimensional changes that will take place during the Galactic Shift.

How to Access the Various Dimensions of the Universe

To help you understand the shift you are going through, we are going to discuss how the various densities and dimensions of the universe are constructed. We promise to use easy to understand terminology as we venture forth into this arena. We will not detail the individual levels, as that is contained within other books, including our first e-book and the channel’s hardcopy book, “Life On the Cutting Edge.” Rather, this discussion will focus on how to go between the different densities and dimensions.

As we stated in one of our previous messages, there are doorways between the dimensions of our Creator’s universe, called by various Earth names, including stargates, portals, vortexes, mini-wormholes, etc. Not all of these terms are accurate. For example, a vortex is merely a concentrated area of EM energy, usually where two or more ley lines come together, and it is only when EM energy is configured in a certain way that you have a device or area capable of providing a dimensional shift.

You have a term, used by some of your advanced mathematicians and physical scientists, called “zero point.” This refers to the exact balance point between the polarities of an EM field, or rather, the point at which the polarity collapses or becomes essentially non-existent.

At the point of zero polarity, a portal, stargate or mini-wormhole is formed linking your third dimension to other dimensions, although this is a greatly oversimplified explanation.

Another way of stating this is that your third dimensional universe is constructed of polarized EM fields that overlap one another in a way that creates continuity within 3D time/space. Of course, you have your gravitational and nuclear forces as well, but these have more to do with the affinity of objects and levels of consciousness existing within your 3D time/space, and less to do with the way your 3D time/space interfaces with other dimensions of our Creator’s universe.

This channel, in his book on the nature of the universe (Life On the Cutting Edge), differentiated between densities and dimensions, and in keeping with the consistency of his definitions, we will do the same. When we are talking about planes, subplanes and realms of existence within the universe, we will refer to the major characteristics of these planes as dimensions. When we are discussing the vibratory state of specific beings, objects or energy fields existing within a given dimension or dimensions, we will use the term density. For example, you can be a fourth density being, meaning that your dominant level of vibration is that of fourth density, but you can experience the third dimension while in that state.

To digress briefly in order to make this point more clear, beings vibrating at various densities can “visit” or experience dimensions that do not correspond directly to their level of vibration. While third dimensional beings typically have third density bodies, you who are reading this are mostly vibrating at fourth density, yet you are still interacting in the third dimension. This distinction between densities and dimensions will come in handy in our future discussions.

Resuming our discussion of portals and stargates, you will find that our Creator’s universe is designed using several energy configurations, which we will call sacred geometries. Our definition of sacred geometry will be precisely this: The energy configurations of our Creator’s universe.

You will note that the primary configurations evident, at least to you in 3D space/time, are the circle, spiral, and various derivatives of the triangle. The square, which you see often in your manufactured lifestyle, acts as a base or foundation for triangular forms, such as the base of a pyramid. The square is the most dense and stable of the forms and represents a state of stagnation when souls are at rest in the energy of the square. The circle, on the other hand, represents the point of greatest fluidity, since it is the shape of all structures as they approach a singularity. The singularity is the actual doorway or portal between dimensions. At the exact point of the singularity, you are in the void, or the unmanifested Creation.

You can think of this as the “point within the Mind of God” that some of your teachers refer to. This entire universe began as a point within the Mind of God and then expanded and extended itself (in the manner your scientists refer to as the “Big Bang”) until all that you see and experience was brought into manifestation.

The geometric configurations that exist between the square and the circle, or between the base dimension and the singularity, are both beautiful and complex. If the forms are divergent, meaning they are emanating from a point and growing in size and scope, then a dimensional realm is forming or becoming more evident. If the forms are converging, meaning they are diminishing in size and scope, they are moving toward the singularity and are thus approaching the point of dimensional shift in preparation for ascending or descending along the dimensional continuum. One of the simplest examples of this involves the tetrahedron, or pyramidal structure whereby two pyramids are stacked base to base to form an object similar to a four-sided cut and polished diamond. At the base of each pyramid is the square, the most stable part of the object. When a soul is experiencing the energies of the square, he or she is completely solidified within the dimension that is formed by the tetrahedron. (Note: You can also have a triangular pyramid – a pyramid with a triangular base, but such an object is actually less stable than the four-sided pyramid in most cases.)

At the apex, or capstone, of each of the pyramids forming the tetrahedron, you have the singularity, or portal, or stargate, that allows the soul to move from one dimension to another. In the example of the tetrahedron, you can have one pyramid pointing “up” (arbitrarily), and one pointing “down” (again arbitrarily). The up-facing pyramid has a capstone that represents the portal or stargate that is accessed in order to move into a higher dimension. The down-facing pyramid has a capstone that represents the portal or stargate that is accessed in order to move into a lower dimension.

If you can visualize tetrahedrons stacked end-to-end across the universe, you have the most basic concept of how the dimensions of the universe are constructed and how they are accessed. Some of your scientists have correctly postulated that black holes are doorways between the dimensions, and many have envisioned the idea of traveling into the center of galaxies and through the black holes in the hope of entering another universe or realm.

We need to differentiate between the black holes at the galactic core of most galaxies, and the mini-black holes and mini-wormholes that exist everywhere throughout 3D time/space. The massive black holes that exist at the center of various heavenly bodies, such as galaxies, quasar clusters and interstellar gases, are links between this local universe and other universes, or what have been called “parallel universes.” The mini-black holes and mini-wormholes that exist in great numbers within so-called ordinary time and space, are the portals and stargates that allow you to travel between the dimensions of this local universe. While there are similarities between the mini-black holes and the massive black holes, the levels they access are very different.

In addition to the triangular-based geometric energy configurations, you have various derivatives, including octahedrons, isocahedrons, dodecahedrons, duododecahedrons, etc. We will not take time right now to elaborate on these forms as you can find examples of them on your Internet.

The spiral is a very unique form in the design of the cosmos. You will find that the concept of time, as well as the idea of evolution, and the construction of all life forms, are based on the spiral. Although it is not entirely accurate, you can think of the triangles, pyramids, tetrahedrons, isocahedrons, dodecahedrons, squares, circles and singularities, as part of the inanimate universe, or the basic building blocks of the universe, while you can think of the spiral and its associated fractals and patterns as the animate building blocks of life itself existing within the inanimate framework of the universe.

Another way of thinking of this is to introduce the concept of momentum, or angular velocity. All animate forms within the universe have, to some degree, a momentum, or movement of consciousness and form, within the relatively static structure of the base universe. Spirals are formed when inanimate objects are rotated or moved through an EM field. Although gravitational and nuclear forces are technically in the form of spirals (when examined in great depth and with proper instrumentation), the most obvious energy field acting upon inanimate objects is the EM field.

Since the Godhead consists of both eternal changeless consciousness and ever-moving consciousness, the movement of consciousness, as it traverses the static, changeless, base form of consciousness, creates spiral, or fractal patterns of energy within the stratum (changeless aspect of God). Your scientists call the base, or stratum, the “Bose-Einstein condensate.”

As temperatures approach what you call absolute zero, you discover this static state of the universe. At absolute zero, all motion ceases and you have the pure, changeless consciousness of the primordial God essence. You will find that this changeless state also appears at the exact point of the singularities, existing in infinite number throughout the Creator’s universe. Concurrently, you will find that the zero point of absolute neutrality between the polarities of an EM field are also the points of static changeless consciousness within the Mind of God.

We have so far discussed at least three ways of accessing the eternal, changeless aspect of the Creator:

(1) through the removal of all thermodynamic elements from a region of space, thereby creating absolute zero temperature, meaning no movement of particles or consciousness, a state called the “Bose-Einstein condensate” by some physicists;

(2) through moving along the converging sides of a pyramidal-type structure into the singularity at the apex or capstone of the structure, which essentially means entering the mini-black holes and mini-wormholes that exist throughout 3D time/space; and

(3) by entering into the point of exact neutrality between the polarities of an EM field, the region called “zero point” by some of your scientists.

It is important for us to remind you, dear Creators, that no matter how you access this eternal, unchanging aspect of God, you are essentially at the same point beyond all time and space when you enter into this state of being. Whether or not you enter a mini-black hole in a galaxy billions of light years from the Milky Way, or you enter in through the zero point of an EM field in your own Earthly laboratory, or you construct a pyramid in your living room and learn how to activate the capstone in such a way that you pass through the singularity and into the next dimension, at the point of singularity you are in the same exact point as you are in that distant galaxy. Every point within the Mind of God is the same point, because the concept of time and space does not exist in the changeless eternal state.

Your rational mind will have a hard time grasping this concept, but you can visualize it to some extent. When you apply this idea to consciousness instead of a static geometrical state of 3D time/space, it makes perfect sense.

All systems of meditation, all paths to enlightenment, involve the same idea. By quieting the mind you enter into the still, timeless realms of pure spirit. When there is no movement of consciousness, you position yourself automatically within the singularity and therefore, within the point of eternal, unchanging God consciousness.

How the Electromagnetic Null Zone will Affect Consciousness

By now, if you have been grasping the ideas put forth in this dissertation, you have probably already reached the logical conclusion to which we are pointing. When an EM field decreases in polarity, it moves those who are involved in this EM field toward the zero point, or point of no polarity. As souls move into the EM null zone created by the emanations of the Central Sun of the galaxy, they pass through this “photon belt” of scalar (non-polarized) EM energy. Therefore, they experience moving through a stargate, or portal, into another dimensional continuum. Since the Divine Dispensation of the Galactic Shift being implemented on Earth (and other relevant planets in this region of space) is designed to “graduate” souls into the next stage of evolution, you will find that the stargates and portals opened up by the EM null zone are “upward spiraling” or “upward converging,” meaning that they lead to the next octave of God’s Creation, which in this case is the higher mental and astral plane of the fourth dimension (for Earth and most of her surviving souls), and the etheric plane of the fifth dimension (for those souls ascending into crystal light bodies).

The Consciousness of the Shift

Many of you that are now vibrating at fourth density passed through the portal from third density as a result of the practice of meditation. When you quiet your mind sufficiently, the movement of consciousness stops and you enter the portal. You might have a partial entering at first, but as you apply yourself more consistently, you find your entire being shifting into fourth density. The actual passage through the portal involves a quantum jump, but in this world, it appears to happen gradually. In other words, some of your cells appear to mutate into the fourth density vibration before others, although this is really an illusion. There is a critical mass that occurs on the cellular level. When enough cells are aligned (or attuned) to fourth density, the quantum jump occurs and your entire body begins vibrating at fourth density.

This experience in consciousness is usually in the form of an “a-ha” or satori that starts you solidly on the spiritual path. For a few brief moments, you have contact with the higher planes and an instantaneous understanding of the Oneness of all life. From that moment on, you become conscious creators living in a fourth density vibration (even though some parts of you still appear to vibrate at third density).

Remember, dear Creators, the words being used here are approximations. Please do not get hung up on the idea that you must vibrate at this or that level. These delineations are given so that the intellectual mind has something to grasp onto during the shift. The reality beyond the words is what is important.

Those of you that have been vibrating at fourth density for some time now are consciously preparing to ascend into fifth density. In order to do this consciously, you must collapse the dualities within your own mind. This means seeing only contrasts rather than judgments when you look at the qualities commonly called light and dark, good and evil, or positive and negative. A fifth density consciousness is one that sees the Divine in everything without judgment. The fastest way to prepare your consciousness for fifth density is to let go of ALL judgment, all comparison, and all attachment to duality (also called “maya” or illusion).

The Split within Humanity

As you know by now, not all souls on Earth will pass through the portal into the fifth dimension. In fact, the vast majority of humanity will either disincarnate as Earth approaches the portal, or will move into the fourth density state. They will not be vibrating at a high enough rate to move completely into fifth density. The Earth herself will move through the portal in such as way as to become a fourth density planet existing in the fourth dimensional state of the universe. To adequately explain the interaction of third, fourth and fifth dimensions upon one another, and to adequately describe the third, fourth and fifth density vibrations of souls involved in the Galactic Shift, would require detailed complex diagrams and rigorous mathematics. To the relief of most readers, we will not be translating this treatise into such a methodology at this time.

This channel and his primary guide, Leah, have already discussed the metaphysical and spiritual implications of the Galactic Shift in the numerous channeled messages he has given, both in lecture format and on his website, as well as in the Leah e-book. In the spirit of refraining from reinventing the wheel, we will only touch upon these matters such as they relate to the science that we are describing. While some of you do not need a scientific explanation of the Galactic Shift, it is helpful for many of you and provides some detailed “how-to” regarding your abilities to move smoothly through the transition from third density to fourth and fifth.

Another View of the Shift

For those of who you are clairvoyant, or at the very least highly visual, let us sum up our discussion so far using overly-simplified depictions. You have a spiral galaxy, your Milky Way, spinning like a pinwheel, and the solar system, your sun, outer giant gaseous planets, and all the rest, including rogue planetoids and asteroids, all rotating, revolving and spinning along with the rest of the stars and planets in this outer spiral arm of the galaxy. As these heavenly bodies spin along with the rest of the spiral arm, they encounter a beam of high intensity scalar EM radiation emanating from the Central Sun of the galaxy. It is as if someone shone a spotlight out from the center into space and your solar system moves through the beam of the spotlight, however briefly (only about 150 years in Earth time and only about 20 years in the most intense part of the beam).

As Earth passes through the beam, all life forms upon her, as well as the planet herself, are transformed, translated and transmuted into the next dimension.

Those that are unable to withstand the frequency change will leave their bodies and incarnate elsewhere in the galaxy, preferably in a sector that is not about to go through a similar change. Those that are able to withstand the frequency change, but are not able to go completely through the stargate into the fifth dimension, will find themselves in the fourth dimension, which is the dimension of thought and time. To a fourth density being living in a fourth dimensional time/space continuum, life seems quite similar to third density except that such souls are aware that they are conscious creators and that consciousness creates their experience of reality.

They learn to create from the center of their being outward, and the world they see is an enlightened paradise that reflects their higher state of consciousness. This is the “golden age” spoken of by many of your prophets.

Those that are able to move completely into the fifth dimension will experience the fifth dimensional version of Earth. Like yourselves, Earth is a multidimensional being of light manifesting as a planet rather than a humanoid or star. Her dominant frequency will move from third to fourth density, and so those of you who go through ascension will essentially be fifth density beings living on a fourth density world, or shall we say fifth density beings living in the fourth dimension.

Again, we apologize for the limited scope of your language, as this is not the most ideal way to describe this. As fifth density beings living in the fourth dimension of time/space, you will have certain advantages over the fourth density beings living in the fourth dimension. While they will still grow old and die, reincarnating over and over as fourth density beings until they ascend off the wheel of reincarnation, you will be in your immortal crystalline light bodies. For a while, you will still be visible to fourth density humans, but eventually you will increase your frequency sufficiently to become invisible even to fourth density. Only the clairvoyant and telepathic members of the “golden age” will be able to interact with you at that point.

As fifth density teachers and wayshowers, you will guide and instruct the leaders of the fourth density world in the ways of spirit, love and compassion. You will also interface with the enlightened ETs that will come and go openly from the Earth plane. Many of the ETs currently assisting Earth are already vibrating at fourth and fifth density and it will become very easy for them to interact with humans on Earth after the shift. In one of our following messages, we will go into greater depth on the role and function of the ETs, angels and ascended masters and how they will assist as Earth goes through the Galactic Shift.

In our next message, we will detail some of the specific changes you will see on your planet, as well as the ongoing changes to your sun and the outer gaseous planets of your solar system.

We are grateful for this time with you and we are glad that so many of you are able to follow the train of thought we have prepared. We are the Founders, ever in the Light of God.

Solar System Changes –The Founders

Received by Sal Rachele
(Read the Introduction and First message here.)

Specific Changes to Your Solar System

Greetings, dear Creators, we are the Founders. The information we are giving in this section can be easily verified by studying the scientific data gathered by your researchers. While we do not give much credit to your governments in general, they are playing a helpful role in disseminating some of this information.

Changes to Earth’s Electromagnetic Fields

Please recall that your physical north and south poles are not the same as your EM north and south poles. The rotation of your Earth, although it has a minor effect on the EM polarities of your Earth, is completely different from the movement of the polarities. Approximately every 680,000 years, as documented by your scientists, the polarities of the Earth reverse themselves. In essence, the north magnetic pole becomes the south magnetic pole and the south magnetic pole becomes the north magnetic pole. Meanwhile, your Earth continues to rotate as usual, with no significant speeding up or slowing down of its rotation, nor does the rate of tilt of the axes change very much during these EM shifts. The angle of tilt of the axes is important, however, because of the precessional alignment that greatly augments the effects of the Galactic Shift.

As stated previously, the precession of the axes repeats itself with fairly accurate precision about every 25,920 years, and the point of conjunction between the current and previous precessional alignment is accurate to within a few seconds of a minute of a degree each cycle.

As stated in our discourse given in 2005, each time the axes align with the quasars near the center of the galaxy, the region of space through which the energy bursts are transmitted varies slightly. If you cut the galaxy up into 360 degrees by making a circle around the spiral arms, and then divide 360 by approximately 9000 (the number of precessional alignments during one revolution of the solar system around the Central Sun of the galaxy), you have the difference in position of the solar system with respect to the Central Sun, between each precessional cycle.

This partially explains why some of the precessional alignments cause a complete pole reversal, while others cause only a small shift in the location of the EM poles. In the current precessional cycle (scheduled to peak on December 21, 2012), the poles will shift radically, but are unlikely to reverse themselves completely.

This channel has correctly pointed out that you can obtain detailed records of the position of your EM north and south poles on an annual basis. One website is http://www.usgs.gov. A site specific to our discussion is http://www-atlas.usgs.gov/articles/geology/a_geomag.html. If you have a computer that is capable of toggling back and forth between this material and the website the channel is referencing above, then this would be a good time to do that.

When you examine the maps given at the above website, you will note the accelerating movement of the north magnetic pole from its current position in northern Canada, eventually ending up in Siberia. The south pole is of course shifting concurrently with the north pole, but its movement is largely confined to Antarctica and the South Pacific Ocean.


It is interesting to note that the data given on the specific site referenced above shows the south magnetic pole shifting more slowly than the north magnetic pole (figure above). We attribute this to fluctuations in the EM field of the sun. As you scroll down the specific site we referenced, you will see a diagram showing the effect of the sun’s EM field on the Earth’s EM field (figure below, artist’s rendering). As you can see, it is a very significant influence. Your scientists attribute most of the variations in the magnetic poles to the movement of the iron core of the Earth. While this is definitely a contributing factor, the precessional alignment and the fluctuations in the sun due to the Galactic Shift account for the majority of the accelerating magnetic pole shifting on the Earth that is occurring now.


The channel pointed out to us that in the 11th diagram showing the effects of solar radiation on the EM fields of Earth, the government site actually admits that the solar flares emanating from the sun cause major shifts in Earth’s environment. It often amazes us how the majority of humans refuse to acknowledge what is presented right in front of them while they cling to their “business as usual” philosophy.

Although this series of messages is concerned primarily with the Galactic Shift that occurs approximately every 108 million years, and the precessional alignment that occurs every 25,920 years, there are many other shifts that occur periodically, including the one your scientists have pinpointed that occurs about every 680,000 years.

Returning to our discussion of the precessional alignment, it is evident that the changes experienced every 25,920 years vary greatly from cycle to cycle. Some of the destruction of land masses, ice ages, and other cataclysmic changes that have occurred on your Earth have corresponded with the 680,000-year pole reversals, and some of them have occurred during similar periods that have great polar fluctuations but without complete pole reversal.

Your Earth has gone through between 30 and 40 Galactic Shifts (108 million year cycles), depending on when you define the Earth as a stable planet. The planet was largely gaseous during the first few shifts, and did not sufficiently stabilize until approximately 4.5 billion years ago. Life as you know it (the emergence of second density consciousness) did not begin to form until approximately 3.8 billion years ago.

You will note, when studying the history of your planet, that only a few of the Galactic Shifts had cataclysmic results radically affecting the evolution of the Earth. The Galactic Shifts themselves, while having a significant impact especially when combined with the precessional alignment, do not automatically signal a massive change in the geology and meteorology of the Earth. What they do portend, however, is a massive shift in the biological life forms on Earth, as well as the technological inventions of the more evolved of the species, namely, humanity. (We are not including the dolphins and whales in our discussion because they do not have sophisticated technological devices.)

Human beings (and all second and third density life forms) are largely electromagnetic in nature. The EM force is the most significant of the basic forces of nature with respect to the human life form, and has profound consequences on the physical, emotional, mental and astral levels of the soul. The EM force originates in what is commonly called the etheric dimension, or the ethers, or aethers, depending on how you translate. What has been called “dark energy” and “dark matter” are actually distortions in the time/space continuum caused by the interaction of the etheric realms on the physical realms. This is why your time and space measurements are flawed. This is why your instruments calculate the duration of one Galactic Cycle at 227 million years instead of 216 million years. While you have accounted for gravitational fluctuations, including the curvature of time and space (according to Einstein’s general theory of relativity), you have not accounted for the fluctuations of the EM fields due to the impingement of the etheric realms on the physical realms.

The greatest specific changes you can expect to see as you move into the Galactic Shift have to do with the mutations within the cells of humans and the disruption of technologies. These will not only be precipitated by changes to your Earth, its climate, seasons and such, but also by significant changes in your sun.

Changes to Your Sun During the Shift

Your sun is the center of the EM field generated within your solar system. EM fluctuations are first received by your sun and then stepped down in frequency as they radiate out from your sun into the solar system. To reiterate the information given in the 11th diagram of the government site, while the planets obviously receive some of their EM bursts/fluctuations directly from the Central Sun of the galaxy and the quasars, the most significant EM bursts/fluctuations come from your own star.

If you study the geology of your sun extensively, you will realize that the nuclear forces involved, while determining the life cycle of your sun, do not explain the abnormally high level of solar flares, sunspots and solar storms you have been experiencing as you approach the year 2012.

You will find that the precessional alignment of the Earth does not have a significant influence on the activity of your sun, but the Galactic Shift in the form of the EM null zone definitely does. Therefore, it is not entirely accurate to say that the sun’s activity will peak in the year 2012. There are already great fluctuations in this your year 2007, and there were massive fluctuations over the last few years. Your scientists are perplexed that there is so much solar activity when the sun is not within the 11-year cycle they have documented previously. In other words, they do not understand why solar activity continues at a high rate during the supposedly quiet periods between normal solar cycles.

The solar activity will reach its peak during the 20-year midpoint of the EM null zone. This midpoint will last from approximately 2015 until 2035. The precessional alignment of 2012, while having little or no effect on the sun, will greatly exaggerate the effects on Earth of the solar activity. This will cause significant changes to the atmosphere of the Earth. The interaction of the Galactic Shift combined with the precessional alignment, even though a complete pole reversal is not anticipated, will nevertheless create an effect much stronger than a normal cycle of partial pole reversal.

The saving grace for Earth lies in the fact that the peak of the Galactic Shift occurs AFTER the peak of the precessional alignment. This is why we anticipate moderate cataclysmic events instead of severe cataclysmic events. This is one of the reasons why we see at least one quarter of humanity surviving the Earth changes.

According to our analysis and the analysis of many others, the greatest decrease in humanity’s numbers will not be from cataclysmic floods, earthquakes, volcanoes and climate changes, but from the failure of the immune system of the human body, and this will be due to the EM fluctuations themselves (and ultimately the decisions of each soul). Of course, those souls that have elevated their consciousness and cleared their psychological and emotional issues will have a much easier time dealing with the EM fluctuations.

Those souls that are committed to staying with the Earth will be given tools and DNA healings that will keep their immune systems “immune” from many of the changes. These tools will be given by their own higher selves, or God Selves, as well as from helpers in the higher realms, such as us.

The sun’s EM fluctuations have a major impact on the human body. This channel and many others have learned to recognize when there is a significant solar flare or solar storm just by the way they feel. Intense periods of solar radiation often correspond to heightened emotional sensitivity and erratic production of brain chemicals. Many souls feel they are going crazy during these episodes. Conflagrations and violence tend to escalate.

Intense bursts of solar radiation entering the upper atmosphere of the Earth affect the weather, tending to cause the Earth to temporarily dry out and warm up. They also affect the functioning of satellites, which in turn affect your communications systems and computer technology.

There are many other phenomena related to the changes in the sun and outer gaseous planets. Perhaps you have noticed that the planets and stars look brighter than usual at certain times. The part of the moon that is in darkness is more easily visible than it used to be. While this is due partially to the reflection of Earth’s city lights on the surface of the moon, there are other reasons as well. The atmospheres of the Earth and other planets are becoming more highly charged as the bursts of radiation from the sun continue. The aurora borealis increases.

(Click here for resources on solar flares, solar winds and solar storms.)

Effect of the Shift on the Other Planets

On Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, the gaseous structure of these planets causes them to be particularly sensitive to changes in the EM field of the sun. Scientists are observing changes in the atmospheres of these planets and are unable to explain what is taking place. Perhaps those with highly sensitive instruments have drawn a connection between solar flares and these changes, but the results are still being disputed. Some have gone so far as to suggest that Jupiter may be turning into a second sun. While this is scheduled to happen in the far future (turning your solar system into a binary structure), we do not see this happening in your lifetimes. The nearest estimate is 1,943,674,800 years from now, and there are a few variables that could make that the date of a partial ignition of the reactor system within Jupiter, and not a total fusion reaction.

You might be thinking that beings as advanced as we are would surely be able to give a more accurate timetable for the conversion of Jupiter, but you must understand that we are looking at nearly two billion years of human evolution before the proposed date. You are powerful, creative, spiritual beings. During the next two billion years, many of you will evolve to the level of Creator Gods. When you have reached that level of awareness, you will have the ability to affect such things as fusion reactions within gaseous planets. At this point in your evolution, the cycles of the cosmos are beyond your free will. They will happen regardless of whether or not you believe in them or try to prevent them.

However, a time will come when you will be able to change the cosmic cycles. You can already influence them to some degree, but it is very minor. If the entirety of humanity were to concentrate on changing the orbit of a comet or asteroid, however, you could influence the orbit enough to perhaps prevent an impending disaster.

Your arrogant scientists think they can change the orbit of heavenly bodies by exploding nuclear devices on or near such objects. While the successful execution of such a program would undoubtedly have an effect on a heavenly body in the vicinity, there are a lot of factors that have not been taken into account, including the intervention by beings in other realms that do not wish to have such devices exploded. The role of helpers in the changes taking place on Earth will be the subject of one of our later sessions. For now, we feel it is time to explain the coming changes using your various fields of study, so that as many of you as possible can understand what we are saying. In our next message, we will relate this information through the filters of your individual sciences and specific disciplines.

We are the Founders, emanating the Love and Compassion of the One Creator.

https://israelpalestinenews.org/senate-passes-38-billion-to-israel-next-step-house-of-representatives/

By Alison Weir

The Senate yesterday passed a bill to give Israel $38 billion over the next 10 years. The legislation, heavily promoted by AIPAC, was adopted in a voice vote. The bill is “S.2497 – United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018.”

This amounts to approximately $23,000 for each Jewish Israeli family of four.

The bill also mandates that NASA work with the Israeli Space Agency, despite accusations of Israeli espionage – In 2015 a Caltech scientist revealed that the Chair of Israel’s National Committee for Space Research had illegally acquired classified information.

Also yesterday, the Senate voted a Defense bill that provides $550 million to Israel.

While Israeli media have reported on the legislation, mainstream U.S. news media have failed to inform Americans about the money to Israel.

AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, issued a statement saying: “AIPAC appreciates the leadership of Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) and Ranking Member Robert Menendez (D-NJ) along with the authors of the bill, Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chris Coons (D-DE).”

The bill is currently also making its way through the House of Representatives. If the House passes it, as expected, it will be sent to President Trump to sign into law.

[To take action regarding the bill go here]
From previous IAK reports:

It appears that giving Israel this money would violate several U.S. laws:

• It would violate two amendments to the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act, known as the the Symington and Glenn Amendments, that ban support for countries engaged in clandestine nuclear programs. (More information here.)

• It would violate the Leahy Law, which prohibits aid to countries guilty of human rights violations.

In the past Israel has used U.S. aid in ways that violated the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), which prohibits re-export of U.S.-origin defense and dual-use technology, which Israel has repeatedly done. Israel has also been charged with using U.S. weaponry illegally.

Despite this – and despite the fact that Israel has killed 150 and injured 16,000 Palestinian men, women, and children in the past four months – the aid bill has 71 co-sponsors: 36 Democrats and 35 Republicans.

The bill is being heavily promoted by AIPAC, which pioneered it, and other pro-Israel organizations.

Among the co-sponsors are some progressive Senators, including Elizabeth Warren and Kirsten Gillibrand, even though polls show that only 19 percent of liberal Democrats support Israel over Palestinians.

Despite the record breaking quantity of money, almost no mainstream U.S. media have informed Americans of the bill.

The aid package was first negotiated by the Obama administration, which largely submitted to Israeli demands. The Forward reported at the time: “When Yaakov Nagel, Israel’s acting national security adviser, was tasked with heading the team negotiating a new 10-year military aid package with the United States, Prime Minister Netanyahu set forth the guidelines: ‘If you reach $3.5 billion a year, you’ll get a gold medal,’ Nagel recalled Wednesday, hours before signing the agreement in Washington. ‘If you get $3.3 billion you’ll get a silver medal; and if you get $3.1 billion you’ll get the bronze.’”

Senate passes $38 billion to Israel – next step House of Representatives

Why paying extortion ‘aid’ to Israel is bad investment for the U.S.

israel aid

Israel and its U.S. lobby are pressing President Barack Obama to sign an executive agreement pledging $45-$50 billion in military and other support to Israel over a ten-year period. The secret negotiations have hit so many administration roadblocks that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is making a special visit to the U.S.—on the pretext of receiving an award from a neocon think tank—but in reality angling for a meeting with Obama. Israel wants a greater percentage of U.S. taxpayer aid dollars to be spent in Israel, rather than flowing into U.S. military contractors. Israel’s side also opposes Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) caps on its flexibility to continually lobby Congress for additional aid for “joint” projects, such as anti-rocket defense systems, which mostly go to Israeli contractors.

It is surreal that Israel is even asking Obama to sign on the dotted line rather than waiting for the next president to promise aid. The Israeli government pulled out all the stops opposing the administration’s signature foreign policy achievement—the JCPOAgoing as far as offering bribes to Congress and conducting espionage on U.S.-led negotiating sessions. However, Netanyahu has calculated he stands a better chance at extracting a new deal from Obama than whoever next occupies the Oval office.

The majority of Americans, on the other hand, overwhelmingly oppose U.S. aid to Israel, according to polls fielded in 2014 and 2016. Growing numbers would rather boycott, divest and sanction Israel for its human rights abuses than provide the arms and blanket diplomatic support (commonly stipulated in these MOUs) that enable the abuses to continue. Beyond that, there are five lessor known reasons Americans should be actively opposing U.S. aid to Israel:

1. U.S. aid to Israel yields a huge negative return on investment

From a strictly green-eyeshade perspective, U.S. aid to Israel is a horrible investment. The late Harvard economist Thomas Stauffer in 2002 tallied the cost of Israel to the United States since 1973 to be $1.6 trillion. Stauffer included the oil crisis triggered by Arab governments in the aftermath of wars fought with Israel and other costs emanating from Israel’s violent repression of the Palestinians. Since Stauffer’s death in 2005, no other high-profile economist has taken up the thankless task of calculating such figures, though fresh data to feed such models has been piling up.

It is now the consensus view that America was attacked on 9/11 because of U.S. troops stationed in Saudi Arabia and unconditional U.S. support for Israel. The 9/11 attacks cost $3.3 trillion according to one conservative estimate. Israel lobbyists often claim that U.S. foreign aid to Israel is an investment that yields “dividends” and is therefore a “bargain.” If we assume aid is an investment and adjust for inflation, publicly known aid through 2011 is $233.6 billion. If we then assign unconditional U.S. support for Israel half the blame for motivating 9/11, an actual return on investment calculation is possible. The ROI of U.S. aid to Israel considering only half the costs of 9/11 is negative 806 percent. By any measure, this is an extremely poor return.

2. U.S. Aid to Israel is not a significant “U.S. jobs creator”

Many pundits are now spinning the proposed new MOU as a “U.S. jobs creator,” particularly in view of the pending restrictions against spending much of the aid in Israel. But how many jobs do military sales actually generate? Pitifully few. The top five military contractors, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, General Dynamics and Northrup Grumman claim to employ nearly a half-million, on annual 2015 revenues of just under a quarter trillion dollars. At $463,069 to support a single direct job, military equipment and service vendors employ many fewer employees per dollar of revenue than most other industries. Looking back, even if Israel spent 100 percent of its past ten-year $3.1 billion annual MOU dollars on “top shelf” U.S. military goods, like the Joint Strike fighter, it would have produced less than 7,000 direct U.S. jobs.

irmep

Military contractor revenue to support one direct job

However, Israel’s largest U.S. “purchases” by volume are not high-tech goods, but rather the jet and diesel fuel it needs to reach its ever-growing number of designated enemies both in territories it illegally occupies and neighboring countries. In April, 2016 Israel notified Congress of its need for 864 million gallons of aviation and diesel fuel on average priced at $3.09 per gallon. Such commonplace commodity purchases drag the number of jobs supported in the U.S. by the MOU down to embarrassingly low levels.

Redirecting such tax dollars to projects inside the U.S., in particular for rebuilding desperately-needed infrastructure, would employ many more Americans per dollar spent than military contractors while providing tangible benefits to the commonweal.The U.S. construction industry supports a job for every $174,000 in output. The proposed $5 billion in aid proposed for Israel could instead unleash the restoration power of nearly thirty-thousand American construction workers—rather than a future of bloody Israeli military onslaughts on Gaza or Lebanon or yet-to-be determined targets.

3. U.S. aid enables Israel to forever avoid a meaningful peace deal

Back in 1960, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency predicted what has since come to pass. If Israel were able to achieve military hegemony in the region, it would lose interest in pursuing peace with the Palestinians and its neighbors through meaningful and justified concessions. The very aid that most Americans now oppose makes resolving the oldest, most disruptive conflict in the region impossible. In turn, U.S. support generates periodic blowback against the U.S., in the form of oil embargoes, terror attacks and loss of goodwill across the globe.

4. U.S. aid to Israel offsets Israel’s nuclear weapons development costs

The CIA’s special national intelligence estimate based its prediction of Israeli regional military hegemony on its acquisition of nuclear weapons. Since the beginning, Israel has relied on being able to surreptitiously source materials, know-how and technology from the U.S. and evade punishment when its agents were caught in the act. Charities raising hundreds of millions in the United States, such as the American Committee for the Weismann Institute for Science count on the IRS and the rest of the U.S. Treasury to look the other way and pretend clandestine nuclear weapons development has some sort of social welfare function. American taxpayer dollars devoted to providing Israel with military goods including nuclear capable aircraft and commodities therefore offset, subsidize and empower Israel’s clandestine development of nuclear weapons. This situation—well known and endlessly explored in foreign news media—makes the United States the butt of jokes at Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) conferences.

5. Israel’s nuclear weapons program makes aid illegal

In the mid-1970s, during investigations into the illegal diversion of weapons-grade uranium from U.S. contractor NUMEC to Israel, Senators Stuart Symington (D-MO) and John Glenn (D-OH) amended the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act to ban any U.S. aid to clandestine nuclear powers that were not NPT signatories. The legislative intent of the amendment, as expressed by Symington, was clear: “if you wish to take the dangerous and costly steps necessary to achieve a nuclear weapons option, you cannot expect the United States to help underwrite that effort indirectly or directly.”

Since the law went into effect foreign aid including estimated assumed intelligence support—which the CIA refuses to divulge under the Freedom of Information Act—has reached an inflation-adjusted $234 billion in taxpayer outlays. Eager to secure the political support and related campaign contributions from America’s soon-to-be $6 billion per year Israel lobby ecosystemadministrations flout the law by pretending not to know whether Israel has nuclear weapons, despite ample information in the public and government domain. The American public is not fooled. When polled in 2014, 63.9 percent claimed they believed Israel had nuclear weapons. Therefore, the continuance of illegal aid is a moral hazard that chips away at America’s already low confidence in rule of law and “justice for all.”

At this critical juncture, America’s only hope is that the courts issue an injunction against future illegal aid—and order an overdue claw back of the $234 billion unlawfully distributed in the past—to be spent on legitimate purposes in the future. This judicial act would remedy a boondoggle so vast, entrenched and long-running it makes even scandals such as Teapot Dome seem like tempests in teacups.

Grant F. Smith is the author of the new book, Big Israel: How Israel moves America. On August 8, 2016 he filed a lawsuit in federal court to block U.S. foreign aid to Israel and claw back aid illegally delivered since 1976.

STORY AT-A-GLANCE
Most Americans consume three to five times more protein than they need, along with excessive starchy carbs and not enough healthy fats
A more ideal protein intake is likely around one-half gram of protein per pound of lean body mass, which for most is 40 to 70 grams a day. Examples are given
Excess dietary protein can lead to elevated blood sugar, weight gain, kidney stress, leaching of bone minerals, and stimulating cancer cells
Restricting your protein to plant-only sources may create a sulfur deficiency and potentially accelerate age-related functional decline
Protein quality is as important as quantity; consuming a wide variety of high–quality, grass-fed animal- and organic plant-based whole foods is the best approach

Lincoln Co. Sheriff’s Office looking for new ‘recruits’ for Citizens Academy

KSFY

CANTON, S.D. (KSFY) – The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a few more recruits to fill up its second annual citizens academy.

“We were looking for new ways and better ways to connect with the community and get our deputies involved in the community more,” said Dep. EJ Colshan.

To do that, an academy just made sense, Colshan said.  

 

“We’re really proud of our department and we want to show people our department and what we all have to offer,” said Colshan.

Even though three hours one night a week, for 10 weeks seems like a big commitment, learning the inner workings of law enforcement in your community and building those relationships with them, is worth it, Colshan said.

“We do a defensive tactics week and that’s combined with taser, so we let people shoot a taser and we teach them some defensive tactic moves to help keep them safe if they’re out on a walk,” he said.

Citizens will get to take part in a variety of different hands-on activities, including fingerprinting in the crime lab, A.L.I.C.E. training and much more.

“And another one, probably my favorite, are our mock traffic stops,” Colshan said. “We actually have a bad guy in a suspect vehicle and we allow a participant to pull them over and go through a scenario of a traffic stop.”

And participants will get to see all sides of how the sheriff’s office operates …

“They actually get come down to Canton and sit in the communications room and pretty much shadow a dispatcher and learn all the different multi-tasking things a dispatchers do,” Colshan said. “It’s really amazing if you’ve never been in a dispatch center to see that first-hand.”

At the end of the 10 weeks — you won’t be a certified law enforcement officer, but you still get to graduate — and hopefully have lasting relationships with the deputies who taught the course, something Colshan said is the most important part.

“We work for them. A lot of the deputies work and live in this community and we want it to be safe. We want to walk into a convenience store to grab a coffee and have someone come up and say, “‘Oh hey, EJ, good to see you again.’”

  • Credible reports of a meteor exploding with 2.1 kiolotons of force above a US Air Force early warning radar at Thule Air Base in Greenland have surfaced.
  • The Air Force has been silent on the event.
  • NASA did provide a Tweet with data showing record of an object of unspecified size traveling at 24.4 Kilometers per second (about 54,000 MPH or Mach 74) almost directly over Thule, Greenland.You may recall the sensational YouTube and social media videos of the very large Chelyabinsk meteor that struck the earth on Feb. 15, 2013. Luckily it entered the earth’s atmosphere at a shallow trajectory and largely disintegrated. Had it entered at a more perpendicular angle, it would have struck the earth with significantly greater force. Scientists report that Chelyabinsk was the largest meteor to hit the earth in the modern recording period, over 60-feet (20 meters) in diameter. Over 7,000 buildings were damaged and 1,500 people injured from the incident.

    On ICE, Democrats abandon the mainstream

    Despite public opposition, numerous Democrats continue to call for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be abolished. It’s a belief that falls squarely outside the American mainstream: According to a recent POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, only 25 percent of voters support getting rid of ICE.

    A majority of Americans know we must keep ICE, and for good reason: Eliminating this crucial piece of our national security force would grind immigration enforcement to a halt, with devastating consequences for public safety. Abolishing ICE would mean abolishing the agency responsible for removing drug dealers, gang members, and other criminals who exploit America’s border to take advantage of our communities.

    The numbers don’t lie. Criminals arrested by ICE during the 2017 fiscal year were responsible for:

    • More than 76,000 dangerous drug offenses;

    • More than 48,000 assault offenses;

    • More than 11,000 weapon offenses;

    • More than 5,000 sexual assault offenses;

    • More than 2,000 kidnapping offenses; and

    • More than 1,800 homicide offenses.

    Our immigration law enforcement officers work in dangerous conditions to protect our communities. We must stand with them. Recently, 167 Democrats in the House of Representatives refused to vote for a resolution to support these border officials. “To the courageous public servants at ICE, men and women, we want you to know that the American people are with you and my administration has your back 100 percent,” President Trump said in his most recent weekly address.

    Watch President Trump’s weekly address on immigration enforcement. 

    The facts: Abolishing ICE would open the floodgates—to crime, drugs, and terrorism 

    More U.S. states join lawsuit over online 3-D gun blueprints

    Reuters

    Eleven more U.S. states have joined a lawsuit against the Trump administration over the online distribution of blueprints for 3-D printed guns, after several states on Tuesday convinced a federal judge to block the planned publication of the designs.

    California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia were added in a Thursday court filing to the list of eight mainly Democratic-controlled states and the District of Columbia who sued the U.S. government in federal court.  

    The states behind the lawsuit argue that publishing blueprints would allow criminals easy access to weapons. Gun rights advocates say fears about 3-D printed guns are largely overblown, based on current technology.

    The blueprints were originally set to go online on Wednesday, following a June settlement between the U.S. government and Texas-based Defense Distributed allowing the group to legally publish the designs.

    Defense Distributed, founded by self-declared anarchist and gun rights advocate Cody Wilson in 2012, has argued the publication is protected by his First and Second Amendment rights, respectively to free speech and to bear arms.

    U.S. District Judge Robert Lasnik on Tuesday issued a temporary restraining order that blocked the website from uploading the blueprints, saying they could likely cause “potential irreparable harm.”

    Defense Distributed, which uploaded the blueprints just before the judge’s ruling, took them down again, but other online sites have since made them available on the internet.

    The states in their amended lawsuit on Thursday asked Lasnik to permanently block the government from allowing the publication of the files.

    The U.S. State Department had previously banned the blueprints as a national security risk and a violation of arms trafficking regulations. As recently as April, the government in court filings argued downloadable guns would allow extremist groups and criminals abroad unfettered access to arms.

    But a lawyer for the State Department during a Tuesday court hearing told Lasnik that the government had determined in May that the types of guns featured in Defense Distributed’s blueprints do not pose a national security risk as they can be bought “in any store.”

    Another hearing in the case is set to take place later this month.

    The Navy is moving its aircraft carriers to ready them for a potential fight with China and Russia — here’s where they’re headed

    Business Insider

    Earlier this year, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis outlined a change to the Navy’s approach to aircraft carrier deployments, mixing up when carriers leave and return to port, shortening their time at sea, and adding flexibility to where they go and what they do.

    The change is meant to lessen the strain on the fleet and its personnel while keeping potential rivals in the dark about carrier movements.

    This ” dynamic force employment ” was underscored by the USS Harry S. Truman’s return to Norfolk, Virginia, after a 90-day stint at sea that did not include the traditional trip to the Middle East to support US Central Command operations.

    Amid that ongoing shift, the Navy is shuffling the homeport assignments for some of its carriers, as it works to keep the fleet’s centerpieces fit for a potential great-power fight.

    Carrier refuelings are scheduled long in advance to ensure they’re able to remain in service for a half-century, despite heavy operational demands. The carrier fleet is a crucial piece of US strategy, which in 2018 assessed strategic rivalry from China and Russia as the country’s foremost threat.

    Three of the Navy’s 11 active carriers — Nimitz-class carriers USS Carl Vinson, USS Abraham Lincoln, and USS John C. Stennis — will get new homes.

    The Navy declined to say when they’ll make the move, but here’s where they’re headed:

    The USS Abraham Lincoln, which is currently homeported in Norfolk, Virginia, will move to San Diego and rejoin the Pacific fleet.

    The Lincoln joined the fleet in 1989 and was part of the Pacific fleet from 1990 to 2011. It moved to Norfolk from Everett, Washington, in 2011 for midlife refueling, known as reactor complex overhaul, which wrapped up in mid-2017.

    The Stennis has been stationed at Kitsap since 2005, when it relocated from San Diego. The carrier left port without notice at the end of July and will conduct training exercises while underway. It’s expected to deploy later this year, though the Navy has not said when it will leave or how long it will be gone.

    Houston, TX — An alleged serial killer is on the loose in Texas and, according to a former friend, he is taking out the people who bullied him in high school. Joseph Pappas, a former cop in the area, has already struck and his first victim was a cardiologist named Dr. Mark Hausknecht.

    According to Houston police chief Art Acevedo, Pappas is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

    “This man is dangerous. This man’s capable. This man has some skills,” Acevedo said at a news conference this week. “He’s very dangerous, and we need to get him into custody.”

    According to police, Pappas began selling off items on Craigslist just before the killings in an apparent attempt to raise funds for what his former friend is calling a killing spree.

    The former deputy for Harris County Precinct 2 and Precinct 7 took to Craigslist to sell two bullet-proof vests, a $4,500 rifle, a pistol, a bullet-proof panel for a Crown Victoria, and furniture.

    The former friend of Pappas, who spoke to WFAA on the condition of anonymity, said the killer is an expert marksmen who competed in shooting competition and has a stash of firearms. It was also confirmed that Pappas owned a business in which he taught people to shoot.

    KHOU 11 Investigates also found a business registration records under Pappas’ name for a company called “Pappas Academy of Concealed Handgun Instruction.”

    According to the former friend, Pappas was bullied in high school and has comprised a hit list of all the people he claims bullied him. He says the doctor was number one on that list.

    “I personally do not think the doctor is the only person that he is going to target,” the friend told KHOU 11 on the condition of anonymity. “I think [Dr. Mark Hausknecht] was number one on the list. And Joe is extremely intelligent. He’s patient, he’s unassuming, he’s a deadly shooter.”

    “[When we were] hanging out together, over burgers and tacos, telling stories, and he mentioned being called the ‘Greek shrimp’ in high school and ‘karma’s a real bitch,’ and one day the people who bullied him in high school would meet a day of reckoning,” the former friend said. “[Pappas] made the comment, at the time I thought it was a joke, ‘Hey, don’t worry you’re not on my list.’ Now looking back on it, it makes me queasy to think, ‘Oh wait, maybe this guy has a list.’”

    According to police, Pappas’ first victim was shot once in the head and twice in the torso as he was riding his bicycle to work last month in the Texas Medical Center. Police say Pappas, who was also on a bike, rode past the doctor, then turned around and opened fire.

    The former friend said Pappas is now hunting his next victim or victims.

    “If there’s a bully he had in high school I would tell that person to take an unplanned vacation to Alaska,” the friend said.

    According to state records, Pappas held his law enforcement position for 30 years. As KHOU reports, His service history lists him serving as a deputy constable with Harris County Precinct 2 from 1983 to 1986 and at Precinct 7 from 1986 to 1995. His service continued from 1995 to 1997 as a reserve officer for Precinct 7 and from 1997 to July 2013 as a reserve officer for Precinct 2.

    450 Sniveling Cowards?
    Posted on August 2, 2018 by Jolly Roger
    I don’t think so. I’m referring of course, to the “news” of 450 people having their guns confiscated in Florida, without anyone firing a shot. I don’t believe a word of it, but at the same time, I could have predicted that this, or a similar story would have appeared sooner or later, because it serves their purposes so well.

    I remember two instances of these “red flag” gun confiscation laws being applied, and if I’m not mistaken, they both ended with police being shot. Now we’re expected to believe that 450 were taken without so much as a complaint, because this is exactly the type of myth they’d be looking to propagate.

    I always knew, and stated previously, that the success or failure of these red flag gun confiscations would hinder on the first few attempts. If cops were shot, they would end quickly. If the first victims gave up their guns peaceably, the confiscations would continue. What the media hoaxsters are doing is creating the illusion (or “reality”) that Americans are turning in their guns without a fight. They’d like to convince you that no one else is standing up for their rights, and that you would be the only American fighting back should you choose to do so.

    As far as I could see, the whole myth seems to have originated from one FOX news story, based on one interview with one Florida sheriff, who shows off some allegedly confiscated guns to a reporter as proof that this actually happened.

    Gun confiscations are a barometer of tyranny that we’re all watching for, so how did this happen 450 times over the last few months without anyone saying a word? Why did we hear nothing from the first 200? Not a video anywhere showing this happening when it’s such a sensitive topic among Patriots?

    I haven’t seen court documents, videos, complaints filed, or even another news outlet reporting on it independently of the original FOX “news” story, despite the fact that it’s a topic of huge interest, which has allegedly happened 450 times. Not likely.

    This entire story could just as easily be a hoax as be real. At this point it would only involve a few actors, we’ve all seen them routinely orchestrate much bigger events than this to make bogus headlines, and most importantly, this is a headline they desperately need to make the real gun confiscations go a lot more smoothly. I can’t prove it’s a lie, but it seems to me that if it were true, there would be a lot of corroborating evidence that should exist, and doesn’t. I’m not going to believe a word of this until it’s verified independently, because it’s exactly the kind of lie they’d love to have the American people believe.

    If I’m wrong, please correct me, but I can’t find any confirmation that these confiscations actually happened. Please do look for independent confirmation of this yourself before you believe me, or the “news”. Americans understand the consequences of gun confiscations, and I don’t believe they’d hand them over so willingly. The enemy understands that they can’t win unless we do. Expect deception. — Jolly Roger

    The United States Is The Largest Prison Camp In The World

    Paul Craig Roberts

    The Criminal Criminal Justice (sic) System

    The United States has the highest incarceration rates in the world. The US not only has a far higher percentage of its population in prison than allegedly “authoritarian” governments, but also has a larger total number of citizens imprisoned than China, a country with four times the US population. The US is by far the largest prison camp in the world.  

    The conditions, such as solitary confinement, in which many US prisoners are kept are strictly illegal under international law, but that means nothing to “freedom and democracy America.” Solitary confinement, especially confinement inside tiny cells, is like being buried alive. Yet, “freedom and democracy America” is subjecting more than 100,000 citizens to this horror as I write. We hear so much about “America’s moral conscience,” but where is this conscience?

    Other prisoners are used as a cheap work force for US military and consumer industries. Prison labor and the privatization of prisons have created an enormous demand for prisoners. American citizens are shoveled into the profit-making prison system regardless of innocence or guilt.

    There is no doubt that a large percentage of US prisoners are innocent or imprisoned for victimless crimes, such as drug use. According to official US government statistics, 97 percent of all felonies are settled with plea bargains. Consequently, the police evidence and prosecutor’s case is never tested in court. Not even the innocent want a trial, because the jurors are brainwashed and biased against everyone charged, and the punishments that result from trial conviction are much harsher than those given to a compliant defendant who agrees to a plea bargain. Despite the US Constitution’s prohibition of self-incrimination, the US prison population consists of people coerced into self-incrimination. There is no justice whatsoever in the US criminal justice (sic) system. See https://www.amazon.com/Tyranny-Good-Intentions-Prosecutors-Constitution/dp/0307396061/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1532978346&sr=1-6&keywords=paul+craig+roberts+books

    “Law and order conservatives” have fantasy ideas about US prisoners lounging around watching TV all day, playing sports in the open air, and studying in prison libraries for law degrees—a life of leisure at public expense. Soren Korsgaard, editor of a crime journal, tells us what life inside an American prison is really like.

    The United States Criminal Justice System Violates Human Rights

    Søren Korsgaard

    The US criminal justice system has a long history, continuing to this day, of systematically violating prisoners’ human rights and, hence, international law. Although it has moved away from executions of those who committed their crimes as minors, the justice system still condones wrongful executions as evidenced by a study from 2014, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, in which it was concluded, conservatively, that at least 1 in 25 of US death row inmates is innocent of the crime for which they were sentenced to death. Even though this figure, along with facts related to dubious executions, are readily available for public consumption, a massive 55-60% of the US population still supports the death penalty.

    Considering that such polls are conducted, it is safe to say that most have given the death penalty some thought; however, the conditions of US prisons are evidently a rare topic of reflection or conversation, except that most informed citizens are, at least, somewhat acquainted with the practices associated with the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and other so-called ‘black sites.’ These practices, of course, include detention without charge or trial, various methods of torture, isolation, and indefinite imprisonment of minors in flagrant violation of international law. What is less known is that equally criminal human rights abuses take place in US maximum security facilities, so-called supermax prisons, and it is therefore essential that the conditions of these are put into the spotlight. In fact, as will be shown in this article, these supermax prisons have been specifically built for torture in the form of prolonged solitary confinement, which goes by many names including isolation, administrative segregation, management control units, protective custody, restrictive housing, and special needs units.

    What is solitary confinement? It is typically defined as the physical and social isolation of individuals who are confined to their cells for 22 to 24 hours per day. According to a detailed report by Amnesty International, the US “stands virtually alone in the world in incarcerating thousands of prisoners in long-term or indefinite solitary confinement,” as more than 40 states operate supermax facilities, collectively housing over 25,000 inmates that are kept in near-constant solitary confinement. In other prisons, an additional 80,000 inmates are at any time kept in isolation for variable periods. Solitary confinement has become the first resort in many prisons, and it has been shown that even absurdities can lead to years in isolation. For example, men and women have been placed in isolation for “months or years not only for violent acts but for possessing contraband, testing positive for drug use, ignoring orders, or using profanity ….. or report rape or abuse by prison officials.” Perhaps the most absurd example concerns a group of Rastafarian men who were placed in solitary confinement, some for more than a decade, for refusing to cut their hair as it was fundamental to their faith.

    The international community has for a long time discouraged nations from using solitary confinement. For example, when UN’s Special Rapporteur on torture and other inhuman punishment, Juan E. Méndez, delivered his report before the UN’s General Assembly about solitary confinement, he absolutely condemned the use of prolonged isolation and equated it with torture. He added that it should only be used under “exceptional circumstances, for as short a time as possible.” After citing various scientific studies, which showed that “lasting mental damage” can result from even a “few days of social isolation,” he stated that “indefinite and prolonged solitary confinement” should be absolutely prohibited. Méndez also urged nations to end the practice of solitary confinement in pre-trial detention. Méndez’s recommendations were later codified in the United Nations Standard Minimum Rules on the Treatment of Prisoners, known as the “Mandela Rules.”

    Extremely harsh sentences and absurdities leading to isolation have also not gone unnoticed by the UN, especially in the context of underage offenders. Among others, Méndez has scolded the US for “being the only country in the world that continues to sentence children to life in prison without parole,” a practice which violates international law as it is considered a “cruel and inhumane punishment” in accordance with article 37(a) of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that “no child [below 18 years of age] shall be subjected to … capital punishment nor life imprisonment without possibility of release ….”

    During the production of the report on torture and isolation, US officials had openly opposed Méndez’s investigation by restricting his access to prisons and various types of documentation; for example, the number of prisoners in solitary confinement is an estimate as such documentation is not available to the public or even the UN. ADX, a supermax, was one of the prisons that US authorities did not want Mendez to inspect and scrutinize. It is located in Florence, Colorado, and has gained a notorious reputation, even internationally, and it is guarded by secrecy and censorship. The former warden has described it as a “clean version of hell,” and that “it’s far much worse than death.”

    Pursuant to Amnesty International’s report, “Entombed: Isolation in the US Federal Prison System,” the vast majority of ADX prisoners are kept in their cells for 22-24 hours per day “in conditions of severe physical and social isolation.” The designers of ADX (as well as other supermax prisons) had that specific purpose in mind as thick steel-reinforced concrete walls prevent inmates from having contact with those in adjacent cells, and “most cells have an interior barred door as well as a solid outer door, compounding the sense of isolation.” When prisoners are not confined to their cells for 24 hours per day due to understaffing and other issues, they can leave their cells for a few hours per week to “exercise” in a “bare interior room or in small individual yards or cages, with no view of the natural world.” Cells are equipped with a shower and toilet, minimizing the need for leaving them. The inmates are almost invariably separated from other humans, and even “checks by medical and mental health staff, take place at the cell door and medical and psychiatric consultations are sometimes conducted remotely, through tele-conferencing.”

    It is no surprise that under these conditions, suicide attempts, self-mutilations, and acute psychoses are rampant among the inmates. Amnesty International concludes that “the conditions of isolation at ADX breach international standards for humane treatment and, especially when applied for a prolonged period or indefinitely, amount to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment in violation of international law.”

    According to the official policy of the Bureau of Prisons, mentally ill inmates are not kept in isolation. It has, however, been profusely documented that inmates with serious psychiatric disorders are kept in isolation and many inmates with no diagnosis have become seriously mentally deranged. Many of these instances have been detailed in various lawsuits. In one lawsuit against ADX, it was detailed that many inmates “suffer from chronic mental illness and some routinely smear themselves and their cells with their own [feces], howl or shriek continuously or bang their metal showers at all hours of the day or night.” This lawsuit also detailed several specific instances of inmates deteriorating mentally during solitary confinement at ADX, one of whom was John Powers. He was originally placed in the Control Unit (the most isolated part of ADX) to serve a 60-month sentence, but he was frequently transferred to the federal medical facility at Springfield after numerous incidents of self-mutilation. Upon being ‘stabilized’ with various pharmaceuticals, he was promptly returned to the CU at ADX. His medical records showed that he had lacerated his scrotum, bit off his finger, inserted staples into his forehead, and slashed his wrists. Originally, he was ordered to serve 60 months in the Control Unit, but because he did not comply with the behavioral requirements, he spent an unfathomable ten years and five months in that unit before finally being transferred to the lesser restricted General Population Unit (GPU). In the GPU, officials continued to deprive him of mental health care, and subsequently he sliced off his earlobes, sawed through his Achilles tendon, and mutilated his genitals. In 2013, he was transferred to another high-security facility and reportedly “rammed his head into an exposed piece of metal in his cell, causing a skull fracture and brain injury …. [later he was found inserting] metal into his brain cavity through the hole that remain[ed] in his skull.”

    The psychological effects of solitary confinement have been well-known for decades and are not even controversial; for instance, in the early 1990s, Dr. Stuart Grassian conducted extensive interviews with people held in restricted housing in the Pelican Bay State Prison, the only supermax in California. Dr. Grassian discovered that solitary confinement “induces a psychiatric disorder characterized by hypersensitivity to external stimuli, hallucinations, panic attacks, cognitive deficits, obsessive thinking, paranoia, and a litany of other physical and psychological problems. Psychological assessments of men in solitary at Pelican Bay indicated high rates of anxiety, nervousness, obsessive ruminations, anger, violent fantasies, nightmares, trouble sleeping, as well as dizziness, perspiring hands, and heart palpitations.” Considering the humanitarian aspects and that prolonged solitary confinement is a breach of international law, it is striking that the US continues to enforce it upon its convicts as well as those awaiting trial. It appears that inmates are perceived as objects that need to be dealt with in the most efficient way possible for prison staff regardless of international regulations and recommendations.

    Trump Declares State of Emergency as “Apocalyptic” Wildfire Devastates Northern California

    Dog Language Was Just Decoded By Science

    By Melinda CaffertyNatural Blaze

    What is your dog trying to tell you?

    It turns out, dogs are trying to get our attention, but they use more than just a few signals. In fact, we don’t follow their commands they will try harder to elaborate the gesture. It makes you wonder – what has man’s best friend been trying to say all this time?

    A new study, Cross-species referential signalling events in domestic dogs (Canis familiaris), was published in Animal Cognition.

    Researchers decided to first observe the top 19 “referential” gestures demonstrated by canine participants and then began cross-referencing which researcher-responses elicited the most favorable reactions from the dogs. These positive reactions were taken as a sign that the researchers had decoded the dog’s request (i.e., signal, gesture, language) correctly.

    Working with 37 dogs in the researchers’ homes, they focused on what dogs were trying to signal to humans – not other dogs.

    Writing for Treehugger, Melissa Breyer writes:

    The team conducted the research in the context of “referential gestures,” actions used by a signaller to draw a recipient’s attention to a specific object, individual or event in the environment. Referential gestures are non-accidental and “mechanically ineffective movements of the body which are repeated and elaborated on until they elicit a specific response from an intended recipient.”

    In total, the dogs came up with 47 potential referential gestures, which the researchers narrowed down to 19 that had the five features of referential signaling. As described in the study, they are:

    Roll over: Rolling onto one side of the body and exposing the chest, stomach and groin

    Head under: Plunge headfirst underneath an object or human

    Head forward: Move the head forwards and up to direct a human’s appendage to a specific location on the body

    Hind leg stand: Lift front paws off the ground and stand on hind legs, front paws are not resting on anything

    Head turn: Head is turned from side to side on the horizontal axis usually between a human and an apparent object of interest

    Shuffle: Shuffle whole body along the ground in short movements, performed whilst in roll over position

    Back leg up: Lifting of a single back leg whilst lay on one side of the body

    Paw hover: Hold one paw in mid-air whilst in a sitting position

    Crawl under: Move entire or part of body underneath an object or a human’s appendage

    Flick toy: Hold toy in the mouth and throw it forwards, usually in the direction of a human

    Jump: Jump up and down off the ground, human or an object, usually while staying in one location

    Paw reach: Placing a single paw or both paws underneath another object to retrieve an object of apparent interest

    Nose: Pressing nose (or face) against an object or human

    Lick: Licking an object or human once or repetitively

    Front paws on: Lifting both paws off the ground and resting them on an object or human

    Paw rest: Lifting a single front paw and resting it on an object or human

    Head rub: Involves rubbing the head against an object or human on which the signaller is leaning on

    Chomp: Involves opening the mouth and placing it over the arm of a human whilst repeatedly and gently biting down on the arm

    Paw: Lifting of a single front paw to briefly touch an object or human

    The gestures were then categorized by their “apparent satisfactory outcome” (ASO). The ASOs were determined by a) a desire and b) that desired being satisfied. In other words, the dog wanted something, signaled, and produced an outcome that resulted in ending the gesture. They identified eight ASOs at first, but dropped three of them because they were infrequent; another, “Play with me!” was also excluded as :some gestures used during play are also used with other meanings in other ASOs,” notes the paper. In the end, they worked with the four ASOs that were the most frequently observed:

    “Scratch me!”
    “Give me food/drink”
    “Open the door”
    “Get my toy/bone”

    Am I the only who things that dogs are trying to say a bit more than those four basic needs??

    Anyway, here is a chart of which human reactions appeared to please the canines’ commands:

    As interesting as it is the see a study on dog language – I’d personally like to see a less clinical approach.

    What if animals have more than just a little gripe with us and we’ve been deaf to their requests this whole time? Are researchers and biologists – who kill animals without batting an eye – really going to be the ones to crack the code?

    NotLikely.

     

    Farmed Salmon Contaminated With Toxic Flame Retardants

    Posted: 31 Jul 2018 05:23 AM PDT

    farm raised salmonBy Dr. Joseph Mercola

    Research shows farmed salmon contain five times more toxins than any other food tested, including PCBs, dioxin, and flame retardant chemicals that have been restricted or banned in the U.S. and many European countries due to their effects on child development.

    Fish are an important part of the ecosystem and the human diet. Unfortunately, overfishing has depleted many fish stocks, and the proposed solution — fish farming — is creating far more problems than it solves. Not only are fish farms polluting the aquatic environment and spreading disease to wild fish, farmed fish are also an inferior food source, in part by providing fewer healthy nutrients; and in part by containing more toxins, which readily accumulate in fat.

    Farmed Salmon = Most Toxic Food in the World

    Salmon is perhaps the most prominent example of how fish farming has led us astray. Food testing reveals farmed salmon is one of the most toxic foods in the world, having more in common with junk food than health food.1 Studies highlighting the seriousness of the problem include:

    Example one: A global assessment2 of farmed salmon published in 2004, which found 13 persistent organic pollutants in the flesh of the fish. On average, polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) concentrations in farmed salmon was eight times higher than in wild salmon, prompting the authors to conclude that “Risk analysis indicates that consumption of farmed Atlantic salmon may pose health risks that detract from the beneficial effects of fish consumption.”

    The International Agency for Research on Cancer and the Environmental Protection Agency classify PCBs as probably carcinogenic.

    According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PCBs elicit a significant number of health conditions in animal studies, including cancer, immunosuppression, neurotoxicity and reproductive and developmental toxicity.3 Disturbingly, research suggests contaminated fish is the most common source of PCB exposure, as the chemicals accumulate and build up in the fat tissue.4

    Example two: A 2005 investigation5 by another group of scientists concluded even relatively infrequent consumption of farmed salmon may be harmful to your health thanks to the elevated dioxin levels in the fish.

    Example three: Toxicology researcher Jerome Ruzzin, who has tested a number of different food groups sold in Norway for toxins, discovered farmed salmon contain five times more toxins than any other food tested. (In light of his own findings, Ruzzin has stopped eating farmed salmon.)

    Example four: A 2011 study6 published in PLOS ONE found chronic consumption of farmed salmon caused insulin resistance, glucose intolerance and obesity in mice, thanks to the persistent organic pollutants (POPs) found in the fish.

    According to the authors, “Our data indicate that intake of farmed salmon fillet contributes to several metabolic disorders linked to Type 2 diabetes and obesity, and suggest a role of POPs in these deleterious effects. Overall, these findings may participate to improve nutritional strategies for the prevention and therapy of insulin resistance.”

    Researchers Warn Farmed Salmon May Contain Fire Retardant Chemicals

    Now, researchers warn7,8 farmed Atlantic salmon sold in the U.S. and U.K. may also contain polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), toxic POPs that have been restricted or banned in the U.S. and many European countries due to their toxic influence on child development.9 As reported by The Star,10 “[A] new study by the University of Pittsburgh has found evidence of PBDEs in food fed to farmed salmon — even in those in supposedly PBDE-free environments.”

    PBDEs are a class of chemicals that for years were used as flame retardants, and while restrictions were placed on some of the chemicals in this class in 2004, they can still be found in older products — and in the environment. China, Thailand and Vietnam — three areas that process significant amounts of electronic waste — are known to have higher levels of PBDEs in the environment.

    In more recent years, flame retardant pollution has raised serious concern, as these chemicals build up in the environment over time and are in many areas now found in both ground water and open waters.

    Health risks associated with these chemicals, including PBDEs, include infertility, birth defects, neurodevelopmental delays,11 reduced IQ,12 hormone disruptions13 and cancer. In fact, flame retardant chemicals have been identified as one of 17 “high priority” chemical groups that should be avoided to reduce breast cancer.14,15

    Toxic Fish Food Blamed for Farmed Salmon Toxicity

    You’re probably familiar with the saying that “you are what you eat.” However, a key take-home message here is that “you are what your food eats.” In other words, whatever the animal you eat consumed, you consume also, which means you really need to know the source of the animals’ feed as well. In the case of farmed fish, toxins in the fish feed and environmental concentrations of the chemicals have been identified as the two primary culprits.

    According to the authors, when the fish are raised in areas with high PBDE concentrations in the water, the feed becomes a relatively minor contributor. In PBDE-free waters, on the other hand, elevated concentrations of these toxins in the feed may be high enough to end up on your plate. As noted by lead author Carla Ng, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering:16

    “In otherwise clean and well-regulated environments, contaminated feed can be thousands of times more significant than the location of the farm for determining the PBDE content of salmon fillets … The international food trade system is becoming increasingly global in nature and this applies to animal feed as well.

    “Fish farming operations may import their feed or feed ingredients from a number of countries, including those without advanced food safety regulations. The United States and much of Europe banned several PBDEs in 2004 because of environmental and public health concerns. PBDEs can act as endocrine disruptors and cause developmental effects. Children are particularly vulnerable.”

    What Makes the Fish Feed so Toxic?

    One of the main ingredients in farmed salmon feed is fatty fish such as eel, selected for their high protein and fat content. The problem is, many toxins readily bind to fat, and the fish feed industry is using fish deemed unfit for human consumption due to elevated toxicity. As you might expect, when the fish used in fish feed contain toxic levels of pollutants, they get incorporated into the feed pellets.

    One significant source of fish for farmed salmon feed is the Baltic Sea, which is well-known for its elevated pollution levels. Nine industrialized countries dump their toxic waste into this closed body of water, which has rendered many Baltic Sea fish inedible. In Sweden, fish mongers are actually required to warn patrons about the potential toxicity of Baltic fish.

    According to government recommendations, you should not eat fatty fish like herring more than once a week, and if you’re pregnant, fish from the Baltic should be avoided altogether. As mentioned by Ng, fish farms may also import their feed, or individual ingredients from other countries with lax regulations and significant pollution.

    Toxic Manufacturing Processes Add to the Problem

    Some of the toxicity also stems from the manufacturing process of the feed pellets. The fatty fish are first cooked, resulting in protein meal and oil. While the oil has high levels of dioxins and PCBs, a chemical called ethoxyquin is added to the protein powder as an “antioxidant,” which further adds to the toxicity of the final product. Ethoxyquin, developed as a pesticide by Monsanto in the 1950s, is one of the best kept secrets of the fish food industry — and one of the most toxic.

    The use of ethoxyquin is strictly regulated on fruits, vegetables and in meat, but not in fish, because it was never intended for such use. Fish feed manufacturers never informed health authorities they were using this pesticide as a means to prevent the fats from oxidizing and going rancid, so its presence in farmed fish was never addressed. Disturbingly, testing reveals farmed fish can contain levels of ethoxyquin that are up to 20 times higher than the level allowed in fruits, vegetables and meats.

    What’s more, the effects of this chemical on human health have never been established. The only research done on ethoxyquin and human health was a thesis by Victoria Bohne, a former researcher in Norway who discovered ethoxyquin can cross the blood-brain barrier and may have carcinogenic effects. Bohne was pressured to leave her research job after attempts were made to falsify and downplay her findings.

    Environmental Pollution Is Also Affecting Wild Fish, Including Some Salmon

    Salmon is one fish species looked to as an indicator of environmental conditions, and salmon have become increasingly toxic. While farmed salmon is by far the worst, even wild salmon can contain unwanted pollutants. In a study17 of salmon found in Puget Sound, researchers discovered 40 contaminants, including drugs, in the flesh of the fish.

    Some of the drugs were found at levels known to interfere with growth, reproduction and behavior. No one knows exactly how this chemical cocktail affects the fish, especially as they are exposed in combination. In all, the study found 81 of 151 contaminants tested for in Puget Sound off the coast of Washington.

    Aside from toxins already mentioned above, such as PCBs, PBDEs and other POPs, researchers have also found a long line of pesticides — including the long-banned DDT — at concerning levels in fish off the coast of California.18 And despite the Clean Water Act, enacted nearly 40 years ago, there are areas of the U.S. where the water is so contaminated with mercury that residents are warned to refrain from eating any locally caught fish.19

    Microplastic Pollution — Another Increasingly Common Seafood Hazard

    The fish you eat may also come with a side order of microplastic,20 as 13 metric tons of plastic enter the waterways every year. Once consumed, microplastic particles tend to remain in the body and accumulate, becoming increasingly concentrated in the bodies of animals higher up the food chain.

    Scientists are still unsure of the effect this may have on those who eat the fish, but common sense would suggest it might not be entirely harmless, considering the fact that microplastic fibers soak up toxins like a sponge, concentrating PCBs, flame retardant chemicals, pesticides and anything else found in the water.

    Evidence also suggests these microscopic particles can cross cellular membranes, causing damage and inflammation inside the cell. According to a 2016 report21 by the British Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs [DEFRA], microplastics have been found in a wide variety of sea creatures, from zooplankton to whales and everything in between.

    According to this report, “microplastics are present in seafood sold for human consumption, including mussels in North Sea mussel farms and oysters from the Atlantic.” Eating six oysters could introduce about 50 plastic microbeads into your body and, according to DEFRA, this kind of contamination may indeed “pose a threat to food safety.” Other studies have found one-third of the fish caught in the English Channel contain microbeads, as do 83 percent of scampi sold in the U.K.22

    Nutritional Differences Between Farmed and Wild Salmon

    As mentioned at the beginning, farmed salmon is also nutritionally less desirable than wild, which actually ties in with its toxicity. One significant nutritional difference is the fat content. Wild salmon contains about 5 to 7 percent fat, whereas the farmed variety can contain anywhere from 14.5 to 34 percent.

    This elevated fat content is a direct result of the processed high-fat feed that farmed salmon are given, and since they contain more fat, they also accumulate higher amounts of toxins. Even when raised in similarly contaminated conditions, farmed salmon will absorb more toxins than the wild fish because of this.

    But farmed salmon doesn’t just contain more fat overall; another nutritional travesty is its radically skewed ratios of omega-3 to omega-6 fats.23 Half a fillet of wild Atlantic salmon contains about 3,996 milligrams (mg) of omega-3 and 341 mg of omega-6.24 Half a fillet of farmed salmon from the Atlantic contains just a bit more omega-3 — 4,961 mg — but an astounding 1,944 mg of omega-6;25 more than 5.5 times more than wild salmon.

    While you need both omega-3 and omega-6 fats, the ratio between the two is important and should ideally be about 1-to-1. The standard American diet is already heavily skewed toward omega-6, thanks to the prevalence of processed foods, and with farmed salmon, that unhealthy imbalance is further magnified rather than corrected.

    A Norwegian report on farmed fish feed ingredients26 talks about the negative impacts of the antinutritional factors of plant proteins and other additives in the feed. Some of the most common ingredients in farmed fish feed include soybeans, rapeseed/canola oil, sunflower meal and oil, corn gluten meal from corn grains, wheat gluten, pulses (dry, edible seeds of field peas and faba beans), palm oil, and peanut meal and oil — none of which are natural wild salmon foods.

    However, as the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) explains,27 Atlantic farmed salmon feeds can also contain animal by-products from poultry, meat meal, blood and hydrolyzed feathers. Additives such as enzymes, crustacean products (to color the salmon flesh), vitamins and selenium are also added — and again, none these are ingredients that any wild salmon has ever encountered and all are about as far from a species-appropriate diet as you can get.

    Salmon Farming Is Not a Green Solution

    More than half of the fish Americans eat now comes from fish farms.28 Aquaculture promotes itself as a sustainable solution to overfishing, but when you consider it takes 1.5 to 8 kilograms (3.3 to 17.6 pounds) of wild fish to produce a single kilogram (2.2 pounds) of farmed salmon, you start to realize there are significant holes in that claim. In reality, the aquaculture industry is actually contributing heavily to the depletion of wild fish stocks rather than saving it.29

    A salmon farm can hold upward of 2 million salmon in a relatively small amount of space. As with land-based factory farms where animals are kept in crowded conditions, fish farms are plagued with diseases that spread rapidly among the stressed fish. Sea lice, pancreas disease and infectious salmon anemia virus have spread all across Norway, yet consumers have not been informed of these fish pandemics, and sale of diseased fish continues unabated.

    To stave off disease-causing pests, a number of dangerous pesticides are used, including one known to have neurotoxic effects. Workers who apply this pesticide must wear full protective clothing, yet these chemicals are dumped right into open water, where it spreads with local currents.

    The pesticides used have been shown to affect fish DNA, causing genetic effects. Estimates suggest about half of all farmed cod, for example, are deformed due to genetic mutations. What’s worse, female cod that escape from farms are known to mate with wild cod, spreading the genetic mutations and deformities into the wild population.

    Genetically Modified Salmon May Hit US Grocers by 2019

    It’s become quite clear that fish farms are not a viable solution to overfishing. If anything, they’re making matters worse, destroying the marine ecosystem at a far more rapid clip. Consumers also need to be aware that some farmed salmon may be genetically engineered (GE) to boot. AquaBounty salmon, engineered to grow twice as fast as typical farm-raised salmon, received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval in November 2015, and could be on sale in the U.S. by 2019.

    Crazy enough, the FDA is not regulating Aquabounty’s salmon as food. It chose to review it as a drug. All GE animals, it turns out, starting with this GE salmon, will be regulated under the new animal drug provisions of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, “because the recombinant DNA (rDNA) construct introduced into the animal meets the definition of a drug.” Yet the reason given for not requiring the fish to carry some form of GE label is that it’s considered nutritionally equivalent to conventional farm-raised Atlantic salmon.

    The unnatural growth rate was achieved by inserting the DNA from two other fish, a growth-promoting gene from a Chinook salmon and a “promoter” gene from the eel-like ocean pout. This genetic tweaking results in fish with a chronic, continuous release of growth hormone. While a typical salmon might take up to 36 months to reach market size (and grow only in spurts during warm weather), AquaAdvantage GM salmon are ready for market in just 16 to 18 months.

    The fish are being grown on land and have several other supposed safeguards in place to prevent both escape and breeding with wild populations but, in nature, nothing is foolproof. This became readily evident last year, when thousands of land-based Atlantic salmon escaped when the pens were broken asunder by a passing storm.30

    Are There Any Healthy Seafood Options Left?

    So, what’s the answer? Unfortunately, the vast majority of fish — even when wild caught — is frequently too contaminated to eat on a frequent basis. Most major waterways in the world are contaminated with mercury, heavy metals, POPs and agricultural chemicals.

    This is why, as a general rule, I no longer recommend eating fish on a regular basis. There are exceptions, however. One is authentic wild-caught Alaskan salmon, the nutritional benefits of which I believe still outweigh any potential contamination. The risk of wild Alaskan salmon accumulating high amounts of mercury and other toxins is reduced because of its short life cycle, which is only about three years.

    Alaskan salmon (not to be confused with Atlantic salmon) is not allowed to be farmed, and is therefore always wild-caught. Canned salmon labeled “Alaskan salmon” is a less expensive alternative to salmon fillets. Remember that wild salmon is quite lean, so the fat marks — those white stripes you see in the meat — are on the thin side. If a fish is pale pink with wide fat marks, the salmon is likely farmed. Avoid Atlantic salmon, as salmon bearing this label are almost always farmed.

    Another exception is smaller fish with short lifecycles, which also tend to be better alternatives in terms of fat content, such as sardines and anchovies. With their low contamination risk and higher nutritional value, they are a win-win alternative. Other good choices include herring and fish roe (caviar), which is full of important phospholipids that nourish your mitochondrial membranes.

    The Body’s Natural State is Health, Not Disease, as We’ve Been Led to Believe

    Posted: 31 Jul 2018 05:18 AM PDT

    healthBy Marco Torres

    There is a reason for every disease state. It is the body’s attempt at restoring balance. A healthy body is incapable of maintaining a state of one disease and healing another. The body heals holistically, and the processes that create each disease affect the body as a whole.

    From the time we are conceived until the time we die, the cells in our bodies are endlessly working to maintain a natural state of homeostasis or equilibrium. When we turn to medicine or medical technology to manipulate our own body systems to heal us, we are really only facilitating our natural ability to heal from within. A diseased body is no coincidence and the natural state of every human being is health, not disease.

    The duress of disease can influence our ability not only to deal with the pain but also to express it. In specific states of disease, some people cannot help but wonder if their body is working to maintain its natural state of health.

    Our disease care industry doesn’t go vary far to help our cause either. From the time we are born, until the time we die, from the very first vaccine to the very last dosage of medication on our deathbeds (and everything in between), we have been conditioned to accept that external factors and disease treatments are what can help control our pain and suffering. 

    We’ve also been conditioned to believe that many diseases cannot be reversed when in fact they can — and without drugs.

    Preventable illness makes up approximately 80% percent of the burden of illness and 90% of all healthcare costs, however our focus is too often addressing symptoms instead of causes.

    Each one of our cells is in a type of fluid matrix which is a dynamic and living unit that is constantly monitoring and adjusting its own processes, and always working to restore itself to the original DNA code it was born with, to maintain balance within the body.

    Cells have the ability to heal themselves, as well as make new cells that replace those that have been permanently damaged or destroyed. Your body is fully equipped to heal everything from a cut on your hand to cancer in your colon and everything in between. That is, as long as there is no interference. Even when a large number of cells is destroyed — something that happens almost daily within our bodies — the surrounding cells replicate to make new cells, thereby replacing almost immediately the cells that were destroyed.

    When a bleeding injury occurs from a small cut anywhere in our bodies, blood vessels at the site contract to slow the bleeding. Now, once you stop the bleeding and move past the pain, what do you do to cause that little cut to heal? You may cover it with a bandage to keep it clean but does the bandage heal the cut? No, the cut will heal with or without a bandage. Next, blood platelets begin forming a blood clot where the injury is located.  In fact, that little cut set into motion a cascade of over 20 microscopic, biochemical reactions.

    Populations worldwide are finally coming to the realization that contracting disease is avoidable, and within our control. Whether it’s the common cold, or something more serious such as heart disease or cancer, have to against our body to get these illnesses.

    It’s perfectly normal and natural to have a population of mutant cells. The human body has 75 trillion cells. We have over 200 different types of cells in the human body. Some 230,000 cells are created every second, almost 20 billion per day. The average person has about 1100 mutant cells daily. The difference between these mutant cells running an imbalanced path of destruction leading to disease, or one leading to balance is entirely dependent on our immune system. The immune system fails to heal us when homeostatic balance is disturbed and the model is unbalanced. 

    Either way we are always in control of our body. To live in a human body, we must have access to a certain amount of life-sustaining energy. We may either use this inherent energy in a nourishing and self-sustaining, or in a destructive and debilitating way. In case we consciously or unconsciously choose negligence or self-abuse over loving attention and self-respect, our body will likely end up having to fight for its life. 

    Disease is but one of the many ways the body tries to change the way we see and treat ourself, including our body. Leading healthy lifestyles and consuming healthful (as opposed to toxic) diets, will go a very long way in keeping us healthy, whether we are young or older.

    The only way to really bring the body out of a diseased state is to stop doing all the things that cause disease and begin rebuilding the immune system. Only then will you not only get rid of one disease state, but you will be rid of them all.

    The immune system is activated by oxidative stress to kill the harmful invading organisms and also kills and dissolves damaged cells that cannot be repaired. Too many oxidants in the cells or blood causes damage and aging to all tissues. An imbalance different oxidants can cause the immune system to attack healthy cells, inflame tissues and slows down the healing process. Too few oxidants will remove the red flags and allow damaged, infected and malfunctioning cells (those that should be flagged and destroyed by the immune system) to thrive, divide and spread the damage.

    Supplement the raw materials the body needs to support the immune system including raw, green vegetables, juices and herbs, as well as anti-oxidants and vitamin supplements from reputable sources.

    Whether you believe your body is in a state of health or disease, you will be right in the long-term. We must recognize the symptoms of imbalance and dysfunction within ourselves before they even have a chance to produce disease. So bring attention to a state of health, not disease and your body will respond, always.

    Lawmakers pursue “legal remedies” to stop social media tech giants from selectively censoring conservatives

    Posted: 31 Jul 2018 05:16 AM PDT

    censorshipAt first, it was only a few media reports and a couple of voices here and there complaining about how the social media behemoths Facebook, Google, YouTube, and Twitter were banning and censoring conservative, pro-Trump voices in the independent and alternative press.

    Then, as more conservative voices were “shadow banned” and otherwise down-rated, the complaints began to grow in frequency and in volume.

    Finally, last week the issue came to a head as the president of the United States, always quick to side against injustice, stepped into the fray.

    “Twitter “SHADOW BANNING” prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints,” POTUS Donald Trump tweeted.

    Donald J. Trump

    ✔@realDonaldTrump

    Twitter “SHADOW BANNING” prominent Republicans. Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! Many complaints.

    The president is, as usual, spot-on. There have been very credible reports and studies done over the past few months indicating clearly that conservative, pro-Trump content is being censored and banned based on nothing more than Left-wing political bias on the part of the social media companies.

    One of the most recent was actually done by a Left-wing news site, Vicewhich found definitive proof that Twitter was shadow-banning conservative content:

    Twitter is limiting the visibility of prominent Republicans in search results — a technique known as “shadow banning” — in what it says is a side effect of its attempts to improve the quality of discourse on the platform.

    Vice has since updated its original reporting to claim that Twitter has “fixed” its issue regarding the shadow banning, but for many elected Republicans, it’s too little too late.

    On Saturday during an interview with Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo, House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said Congress is looking into “legal” remedies regarding social media censorship.

    “I don’t know what Twitter’s up to. It sure looks to me like they are censoring people. And they ought to stop it. And we are looking at any legal remedies that we can go through,” he said, as reported by The Gateway Pundit. (Related: Legislative and regulatory solutions for halting the censorship of independent media.)

    Court battles looming?

    Nunes said initially he had “no idea” what shadow banning was, but eventually learned about it after he said several people mentioned they had tried to find him via the site’s search function but couldn’t. He also noted that there were four members of Congress – including him – who had been similarly blocked.

    Whatever Twitter or GOP critics want to call it, Nunes said, the result was the same: Their accounts were being blocked from users who were trying to make contact with them.

    Watch:

    Facebook is doing pretty much the same thing – blocking users’ content even from their own followers. That’s especially true for conservative, pro-Trump media, many of whom have seen their referral traffic from the platform drop by as much as 90 percent or more in the past few months after “algorithm” changes designed, ostensibly, to combat ‘fake news.’ Meanwhile, the real traffickers in fake news – CNN, The New York Times, and The Washington Post, among others, have seen their traffic increase.

    As NewsTarget reports:

    According to a just-completed study by the Western Journal — whose own right-leaning content traffic has been greatly diminished via Facebook despite its 5.32 million “likes” and 4.58 million followers — traffic to liberal websites has increased two percent in the month since Facebook implemented its new algorithm, while traffic to conservative sites has tanked 14 percent.

    “This algorithm change, intentional or not, has in effect censored conservative viewpoints on the largest social media platform in the world,” George Upper, Western Journal’s editor, added.

    While the social media giants are multi-billion-dollar companies, they don’t have Uncle Sam’s deep pockets or an army of prosecutors like the Justice Department. So that’s a threat the platform should take seriously, especially after the platform’s most high-profile user, POTUS Donald Trump, has threatened the same thing.

    But will they?

    Has everyone forgotten? The massive “Zika scare” was a fake science HOAX pushed by the entire establishment media… not a single retraction ever published

    Posted: 31 Jul 2018 05:11 AM PDT

    zikaThe Zika virus scare of summers past may have come and gone, but it should not be forgotten. After all, it was one of the greatest hoaxes pushed by the legacy media and their masters ever witnessed. After the initial frenzy died down, stories about the threat of Zika have all but been dropped by the media like hotcakes. How could this disease have gone from zero to 60 and back again, in such a short span of time?

    Perhaps, because it was all a hoax; the Zika scare was conjured up to hide the effects of a toxic chemical pesticide being sprayed aerially in South American countries like Brazil. Since the Zika media circus first began, there have been those who questioned its validity. Was Zika truly the cause of microcephaly in thousands of Brazilian babies, or was it something more sinister?

    Unraveling the Zika hoax

    One of the first signs that the Zika scare was fake came in 2016: After the 2015 surge in birth defects in Brazil, which were all attributed to the disease, experts expected that a similar spike in microcephaly would come in 2016 when the virus began circulating again. Health officials posited that there would be at least 1,000 cases of the condition in 2016.

    That surge in birth defects never came. Christopher Dye, from the World Health Organization, told NPR, “We apparently saw a lot of cases of Zika virus in 2016. But there was no microcephaly.”

    Dye and his colleagues found that there were fewer than 100 cases of microcephaly in 2016 — a difference the expert described as “spectacular.”

    “This is a huge, huge discrepancy,” Dye commented. “So what could possibly be the explanation for that?”

    The power of the elements: Discover Colloidal Silver Mouthwash with quality, natural ingredients like Sangre de Drago sap, black walnut hulls, menthol crystals and more. Zero artificial sweeteners, colors or alcohol. Learn more at the Health Ranger Storeand help support this news site.

    There are a few different ideas, according to Dye. He posits that one of the most likely hypotheses is that the cause of microcephaly in Brazil was never the Zika virus to begin with. Dye and other experts have suggested that perhaps it was another virus, or two viruses acting in synergy to cause more deleterious health effects.

    While  all these theories ultimately stick to the narrative that some mosquito-born illness they haven’t yet identified must be the cause, there are a few issues that are clearly being ignored. For example, Mike Adams, founder of Natural News and director of CWC Labs, reported in 2016 that the Zika virus has actually been around since the 1970s. It has never been attributed to a single case of microcephaly before 2015.

    Interestingly enough, however, the pesticide being sprayed across Brazil in the months before the outbreak of “Zika” just so happens to be linked to birth defects.

    Was the “Zika scare” by design?

    Indeed, the same areas of Brazil afflicted by the so-called Zika crisis also happen to be the same areas where the government dumped large amounts of an insecticide, known as pyroproxyfen. Adams explains:

    Those same chemicals, when ingested by pregnant women, also cause neurodevelopmental deformities in human children. This doesn’t mean that Zika can’t also cause microcephaly in rare cases, but Zika is likely to be only a minor factor that’s far outpaced by the causative factor of larvicide exposure.

    Reports show that pyroproxyfen was sprayed around Brazil by the government for 18 months before the outbreak of supposedly Zika-related birth defects began. How this is not a major red flag for “health officials” is beyond comprehension.

    Until, of course, you consider the fact that the globalist Bayer corporation owns the patent on pyroproxyfen. “The globalist agenda is now set in motion. Birth deformities can now be blamed on a mosquito and used to justify the release of more chemicals into the environment,” Mike Adams contends. What other sinister plans do these tyrants have coming down the pike?

    Posted: 31 Jul 2018 05:08 AM PDT

    A recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology revealed that beta-blockers, a type of drug typically prescribed for heart attack, may not be as helpful in preventing the disease as previously believed. To carry out the study, a team of researchers from the University of Leeds in the U.K. pooled data from the country’s national heart attack register and identified nearly 180,000 patients who suffered a heart attack, 95 percent of whom were given beta-blockers. The study revealed that death rates between beta-blocker users and the non-using controls did not differ within a year following a heart attack incident.

    “There is uncertainty in the evidence as to the benefit of beta-blockers for patients with heart attack and who do not have heart failure. This study suggests that there may be no mortality advantage associated with the prescription of beta-blockers for patients with heart attack and no heart failure,” researcher Chris Gale said in TheGuardian.com. Gale currently serves as a professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Leeds and consultant cardiologist at York teaching hospital trust.

    The research team also stressed that the medication could be over-prescribed among patients, and might be adding unnecessary health care cost for the federal government. The experts also called for a complete randomized trial to determine whether the drug should still be prescribed for the treatment of heart attacks.

    “If you look at the patients who had a heart attack but not heart failure, there was no difference in survival rates between those who had been prescribed beta-blockers and those that had not. This was an observational study based on robust statistical analysis of large scale patient data. What we need now is a randomised patient trial. We were investigating one outcome – did beta blockers increase a patient’s chances of survival? A trial would allow researchers to substantiate these findings and also look at other outcomes, such as whether beta-blockers prevent future heart attacks. This work would have implications for personalising medications after a heart attack,” Dr. Marlous Hall, lead investigator and senior epidemiologist at Leeds Institute of Cardiovascular and Metabolic Medicine, said in DailyMail.co.uk.

    The study was funded by the British Heart Foundation.

    Beta-blockers fall short on other studies too

    Previous studies have also shown that beta-blockers were not as effective as the scientific community thought it would be. A study published last year revealed that the drug did not help patients who did not have a heart attack or heart failure even if they did need angioplasty, suggesting that the medication might be over-prescribed in patients who were not critically ill. As part of the study, a team of researchers examined records of more than 755,000 heart patients. The experts focused on patients who underwent angioplasty due to recurring chest pain, 71 percent of whom were prescribed beta-blockers.

    The results showed that death rates for beta-blocker users did not differ from nonusers at three years after the procedure. The researchers also found that heart attack and stroke rates were virtually the same for both groups. In addition, eight percent of beta-blocker users were readmitted to the hospital for heart failure, compared with only 6.1 percent in nonusers. The findings appeared in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.

    Another study published in the  found that patients on beta-blockers did not fare better than those who did not use the drug. To carry out the study, researchers pooled data from the Reduction of Atherothrombosis for Continued Health registry with a cohort population of nearly 45,000 patients. The research team found that 12.9 percent of coronary artery disease (CAD) patients on beta blockers died after a follow-up period of 44 months, compared with 13.6 percent of CAD patients who did not take the drugs. The study also revealed that 14.2 percent of the drug users exhibited poor outcome, compared with only 12 percent of non-users.

    Has everyone forgotten? The massive “Zika scare” was a fake science HOAX pushed by the entire establishment media… not a single retraction ever published

    zikaThe Zika virus scare of summers past may have come and gone, but it should not be forgotten. After all, it was one of the greatest hoaxes pushed by the legacy media and their masters ever witnessed. After the initial frenzy died down, stories about the threat of Zika have all but been dropped by the media like hotcakes. How could this disease have gone from zero to 60 and back again, in such a short span of time?

    Perhaps, because it was all a hoax; the Zika scare was conjured up to hide the effects of a toxic chemical pesticide being sprayed aerially in South American countries like Brazil. Since the Zika media circus first began, there have been those who questioned its validity. Was Zika truly the cause of microcephaly in thousands of Brazilian babies, or was it something more sinister?

    Unraveling the Zika hoax

    One of the first signs that the Zika scare was fake came in 2016: After the 2015 surge in birth defects in Brazil, which were all attributed to the disease, experts expected that a similar spike in microcephaly would come in 2016 when the virus began circulating again. Health officials posited that there would be at least 1,000 cases of the condition in 2016.

    That surge in birth defects never came. Christopher Dye, from the World Health Organization, told NPR, “We apparently saw a lot of cases of Zika virus in 2016. But there was no microcephaly.”

    Dye and his colleagues found that there were fewer than 100 cases of microcephaly in 2016 — a difference the expert described as “spectacular.”

    “This is a huge, huge discrepancy,” Dye commented. “So what could possibly be the explanation for that?”

    There are a few different ideas, according to Dye. He posits that one of the most likely hypotheses is that the cause of microcephaly in Brazil was never the Zika virus to begin with. Dye and other experts have suggested that perhaps it was another virus, or two viruses acting in synergy to cause more deleterious health effects.

    While  all these theories ultimately stick to the narrative that some mosquito-born illness they haven’t yet identified must be the cause, there are a few issues that are clearly being ignored. For example, Mike Adams, founder of Natural News and director of CWC Labs, reported in 2016 that the Zika virus has actually been around since the 1970s. It has never been attributed to a single case of microcephaly before 2015.

    Interestingly enough, however, the pesticide being sprayed across Brazil in the months before the outbreak of “Zika” just so happens to be linked to birth defects.
    https://www.real.video/embed/5807574765001

    Was the “Zika scare” by design?

    Indeed, the same areas of Brazil afflicted by the so-called Zika crisis also happen to be the same areas where the government dumped large amounts of an insecticide, known as pyroproxyfen. Adams explains:

    Those same chemicals, when ingested by pregnant women, also cause neurodevelopmental deformities in human children. This doesn’t mean that Zika can’t also cause microcephaly in rare cases, but Zika is likely to be only a minor factor that’s far outpaced by the causative factor of larvicide exposure.

    Reports show that pyroproxyfen was sprayed around Brazil by the government for 18 months before the outbreak of supposedly Zika-related birth defects began. How this is not a major red flag for “health officials” is beyond comprehension.

    Until, of course, you consider the fact that the globalist Bayer corporation owns the patent on pyroproxyfen. “The globalist agenda is now set in motion. Birth deformities can now be blamed on a mosquito and used to justify the release of more chemicals into the environment,” Mike Adams contends. What other sinister plans do these tyrants have coming down the pike?

     On Wednesday, during a speech at a naval parade in Haifa, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to deploy the Israeli military to Yemen if the country’s resistance movement blocks the Bab al-Mandab Strait on Yemen’s western coast. The strait, the geostrategic position of which was arguably the reason for the Saudi Arabian-led coalition war against Yemen in the first place, connects the Red Sea to the Arabian Sea and has the potential to be used as a “chokepoint” on global oil trade. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, an average of 4.8 million barrels of oil pass through the strait every day.

Night sky guide for August 2018: Partial solar eclipse, Perseid meteor shower

Night sky guide for August 2018: Partial solar eclipse, Perseid meteor shower

Posted by TW on August 03, 2018

A partial solar eclipse will take place from 06:40 to 12:38 UTC on August 11. It will be visible in parts of northeast Canada, Greenland, extreme northern Europe, and northern and eastern Asia. It will be best seen in northern Russia with 68% coverage.
At 09:59 UTC on the same day, the Moon will reach its new phase, making August 11 the best day of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. At new moon, the Earth, Moon and Sun all lie in a roughly straight line, with the Moon in the middle, appearing in front of the Sun’s glare.
The peak of the best meteor shower of this year – Perseids – is less than two weeks away. The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for what should be an excellent show. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors.
The Moon will reach its full phase at 11:58 UTC on August 26. It will be visible from all latitudes north of 67°N. Its distance from the Earth will be 402 000 km (250 000 miles).

  • August 11 – New Moon – 09:59 UTC. The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there is no moonlight to interfere. At new moon, the Earth, Moon and Sun all lie in a roughly straight line, with the Moon in the middle, appearing in front of the Sun’s glare. In this configuration, we see almost exactly the opposite half of the Moon to that which is illuminated by the Sun, making it doubly unobservable because the side we see is unilluminated.
  • August 11 – Partial solar eclipse – 06:40 – 12:38 UTC. A partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon covers only a part of the Sun, sometimes resembling a bite taken out of a cookie. The eclipse will be visible in parts of northeast Canada, Greenland, extreme northern Europe, and northern and eastern Asia. It will be best seen in northern Russia with 68% coverage.

  • August 12, 13 – Perseid meteor shower. This is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 80 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by comet Swift-Tuttle, which was discovered in 1862. The Perseids are famous for producing a large number of bright meteors. The shower runs annually from July 17 to August 24 and peaks this year on the night of August 12 and the morning of August 13. The thin crescent moon will set early in the evening leaving dark skies for what should be an excellent show. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Perseus, but can appear anywhere in the sky. According to meteor expert Bill Cooke, they’ll be the best shower of the year. The peak will be visible both the nights of August 11-12 and August 12-13, Cooke said, but he’s inclined this year to lean toward the night of August 12-13 for the better show.
  • August 13 – 48P/Johnson at perihelion. Comet 48P/Johnson will make its closest approach to the Sun, at a distance of 2.01 AU.
  • August 14 – Conjunction of the Moon and Venus – 13:35 UTC. The Moon and Venus will share the same right ascension, with the Moon passing 6°15′ to the north of Venus. The Moon will be at mag -10.6, and Venus at mag -4.3, both in the constellation Virgo. The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope or pair of binoculars but will be visible to the naked eye.
  • August 14 – M15 well placed for observation. The globular cluster M15 (NGC 7078) in Pegasus will be well placed for observation. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time. At a declination of +12°10′, it is easiest to see from the northern hemisphere; it can be seen at latitudes between 82°N and 57°S. At magnitude 6.4, M15 is quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or a small telescope.
  • August 15 – C/2017 S3 (PANSTARRS) reaches its brightest. Comet C/2017 S3 (PANSTARRS) is forecast to reach its brightest, at around mag 2.2. It will lie at a distance of 0.21 AU from the Sun, and at a distance of 0.93 AU from the Earth.
  • August 15 – Venus at dichotomy – 05:09 UTC. Venus will be well placed for observation in the evening sky, shining brightly at mag -4.3. Venus’s orbit lies closer to the Sun than the Earth’s, meaning that it always appears close to the Sun and is very difficult to observe most of the time. It is observable only for a few weeks each time it reaches greatest separation from the Sun – moments referred to as greatest elongation. On these occasions, however, Venus is so bright and conspicuous that it becomes the third brightest object in the sky after the Sun and Moon. It is often called the morning or evening star.
  • August 15 – M2 well placed for observation. The globular cluster M2 (NGC 7089) in Aquarius will be well placed for observation. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time. At a declination of -00°49′, it is visible across much of the world; it can be seen at latitudes between 69°N and 70°S. At magnitude 6.2, M2 is quite faint, and certainly not visible to the naked eye, but can be viewed through a pair of binoculars or a small telescope.
  • August 17 – Venus at greatest eastern elongation. The planet Venus reaches greatest eastern elongation of 45.9 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Venus since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the evening sky. Look for the bright planet in the western sky after sunset.
  • August 17 – Conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter – 10:39 UTC. The Moon and Jupiter will share the same right ascension, with the Moon passing 4°30′ to the north of Jupiter. The Moon will be 6 days old. At around the same time, the two objects will also make a close approach, technically called an appulse. The Moon will be at mag -11.6, and Jupiter at mag -2.0, both in the constellation Libra. The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope but will be visible to the naked eye or through a pair of binoculars.
  • August 17 – Close approach of the Moon and Jupiter – 13:14 UTC. The Moon and Jupiter will make a close approach, passing within 4°17′ of each other. The Moon will be 6 days old. The Moon will be at mag -11.7, and Jupiter at mag -2.0, both in the constellation Libra. The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope but will be visible to the naked eye or through a pair of binoculars. At around the same time, the two objects will also share the same right ascension – called a conjunction.
  • August 19 – 48P/Johnson reaches its brightest. Comet 48P/Johnson is forecast to reach its brightest, at around mag 12.2. It will lie at a distance of 2.01 AU from the Sun, and at a distance of 1.02 AU from the Earth.
  • August 21 – Conjunction of the Moon and Saturn – 09:38 UTC. The Moon and Saturn will share the same right ascension, with the Moon passing 2°07′ to the north of Saturn. The Moon will be 10 days old. At around the same time, the two objects will also make a close approach, technically called an appulse. The Moon will be at mag -12.3, and Saturn at mag 0.1, both in the constellation Sagittarius. The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope but will be visible to the naked eye or through a pair of binoculars.
  • August 21 – Close approach of the Moon and Saturn – 09:53 UTC. The Moon and Saturn will make a close approach, passing within 2°07′ of each other. The Moon will be 10 days old. The Moon will be at mag -12.3, and Saturn at mag 0.1, both in the constellation Sagittarius. The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope but will be visible to the naked eye or through a pair of binoculars. At around the same time, the two objects will also share the same right ascension – called a conjunction.
  • August 23 – Conjunction of the Moon and Mars – 17:13 UTC. The Moon and Mars will share the same right ascension, with the Moon passing 6°46′ to the north of Mars. The Moon will be 12 days old. The Moon will be at mag -12.4, and Mars at mag -2.3, both in the constellation Capricornus. The pair will be too widely separated to fit within the field of view of a telescope or pair of binoculars but will be visible to the naked eye.
  • August 26 – Full Moon – 11:58 UTC. The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Sturgeon Moon because the large sturgeon fish of the Great Lakes and other major lakes were more easily caught at this time of year. This moon has also been known as the Green Corn Moon and the Grain Moon. At the exact moment when the Moon reaches full phase, it will lie at a declination of -12°40′ in the constellation Aquarius and so will appear highest in the southern hemisphere. It will be visible from all latitudes north of 67°N. Its distance from the Earth will be 402 000 km (250 000 miles).
  • August 26 – Mercury at greatest elongation west – 21:48 UTC. The planet Mercury reaches greatest western elongation of 18.3 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Mercury since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the planet low in the eastern sky just before sunrise.
  • August 28 – Mercury at dichotomy – 11:01 UTC. Mercury will be well placed for observation in the dawn sky, shining brightly at mag -0.5. Mercury’s orbit lies closer to the Sun than the Earth’s, meaning that it always appears close to the Sun and is very difficult to observe most of the time. It is observable only for a few days each time it reaches the greatest separation from the Sun – moments referred to as greatest elongation. Mercury’s phase varies depending on its position relative to the Earth. When it passes between the Earth and Sun, for example, the side that is turned towards the Earth is entirely unilluminated, like a new moon. Conversely, when it lies opposite to the Earth in its orbit, passing almost behind the Sun, it appears fully illuminated, like a full moon. However, at this time it is also at its most distant from the Earth, so it is actually fainter than at other times. Mercury shows an intermediate half phase – called dichotomy – at roughly the same moment that it appears furthest from the Sun, at greatest elongation. The exact times of the two events may differ by a few hours, only because Mercury’s orbit is not quite perfectly aligned with the ecliptic.

The Power of Awareness for Mindfulness and Manifestation

By Jan Moore, Conscious Life News

The Power of Awareness is one of the most powerful tools in the toolkit of developing mindfulness and mindful manifestation.

In this video, I share how being in the present moment is the key to awareness because it is only in the present moment that you have power. What happened in the past no longer exists and what is in the future is purely in your imagination and does not yet exist, and may never exist.

The Power of Awareness of Thoughts

Being aware of what is going on in your head is essential. Is your inner critic speaking negatively about you? Are you getting fearful thoughts – if so, you are out of the present moment? Is your mind racing, trying to find the solution to a problem?

The Power of Awareness and Emotions

Thoughts and emotions are closely linked. Are you feeling fearful, anxious, depressed or unhappy? How can you change these emotions? By shifting your attention and changing your thoughts.

The Power of Awareness and Feelings

Feelings are linked to intuition. When you are aware and tune in to how you feel about something you are getting inner guidance. If something feels good, your intuition is saying YES! If it doesn’t feel good, if you feel uncomfortable or have a yucky feeling in the pit of your stomach (your solar plexus), in other words, a “gut feel”, your intuition is saying NO!

The Power of Awareness of Self

Get to know yourself – “Know Thyself” as the oracle at Delphi says. Develop the self-knowledge, study your personality profile to understand your personality preferences and your natural gifts and abilities. By developing self-knowledge you develop self-acceptance and ultimately self-love, and you are able to discover your life purpose and soul mission. Self-love is an essential factor in manifestation because you have to feel worthy of receiving your desires and intentions otherwise you block the process of manifestation.

The Power of Awareness of Other People

How do you FEEL when you’re with friends, family members and people you encounter in your everyday life? Tune into your awareness of people’s energy and whether you resonate with them. If someone is habitually pessimistic, negative or complaining their vibration will be low which will be uncomfortable if you’re of a higher vibration and you may feel your energy is drained by being in the presence of an “energy vampire”. Choose to be with people who maintain or increase your vibration with their positivity and enthusiasm (from enthous ‘possessed by a god, inspired’). Be discerning and selective about who you spend your time with.

Mindful Manifestation

The more you develop awareness of your thoughts, emotions, and feelings you’ll develop the ability to discern whether you are in alignment with what you want to manifest, and take action to bring them into alignment. As within, so without. To change your outer reality you need to change your inner state of being. That is where your power lies.

Every person needs to integrate the signals that we receive through our senses to do daily activities. However, for people with Asperger’s Syndrome this is difficult because of Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD).

For those of you that are unfamiliar with SPD, here is an explanation from the SPD Foundation:

“Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD, formerly known as “sensory integration dysfunction”) is a condition that exists when sensory signals don’t get organized into appropriate responses. Pioneering occupational therapist and neuroscientist A. Jean Ayres, PhD, likened SPD to a neurological “traffic jam” that prevents certain parts of the brain from receiving the information needed to interpret sensory information correctly. A person with SPD finds it difficult to process and act upon information received through the senses, which creates challenges in performing countless everyday tasks. Motor clumsiness, behavioral problems, anxiety, depression, school failure, and other impacts may result if the disorder is not treated effectively.”

Many adults have gone undiagnosed all their lives wondering why they have such a problem with the everyday tasks that neurotypical people seem to handle with ease. You are not alone! Most medical professionals were not trained to recognize sensory dysfunction. As a result, many people struggle with this hidden handicap and end up being ridiculed, which in turn can lead to secondary problems like social anxiety.

Each person with SPD is affected differently. Some people are hyposensitive meaning that the person is under-sensitive, which usually leads them to seek out sensory input. Whereas, other people are hypersensitive meaning that they are over-sensitive to certain stimuli. Some people have a combination of hypo- and hyper-sensitivity. For instance, a person can have a hyposensitive auditory system seeking out loud noise but be orally hypersensitive leaving them to be labeled as extremely picky eaters. People with a hypersensitive olfaction often struggle to justify why they should concern themselves with hygiene because strong smells of deodorant and hair products can be truly upsetting. There is one quote from an unknown author that has stayed with me since high school, which reads, “You only have one chance to make a first impression.” This statement is painfully true. If you meet someone smelling of body odor with your hair disheveled – this will leave a lasting impression on the person that you don’t take pride in your appearance, which usually then leads them to believe that you don’t value characteristics such as organization, cleanliness, etc.

How do you overcome this?

Due to the fact that every person is differently affected by SPD, it is important to receive occupational therapy with a sensory approach to tailor the session to your individual needs. The occupational therapist can work with you to find different calming techniques that can be used when over-stimulated or stimulating activities when your brain is craving sensation. They may even develop a “sensory diet,” which is when you schedule certain sensory activities throughout the day to help regulate your central nervous system.

Some other good suggestions to alleviate sensory triggers are:

Use non-scented deodorant
If the sensation of showers is bothersome, then take a bath. In order to eliminate the drastic change in temperature when exiting the tub, use a small space heater to warm the bathroom.
Use an electric toothbrush instead of a manual.
Try cutting or smashing small fruits (like blueberries or grapes) if you don’t like the bursting sensation in your mouth
Buy clothes without tags.
Try seamless socks.
Try different kinds of sheets. Many people like the feel of the jersey sheets compared to cotton.
In order to make brushing your hair less painful, consider wetting your hair before your brush it. Fill a spray bottle with water and a small squirt of conditioner. Shake then spray to help break up knots in your hair.
Wear noise reduction headphones or ear plugs when sounds become overwhelming.
Consider wearing sunglasses inside if florescent lighting is too bright for your eyes
Compressions can be very relaxing to some people. If you have someone that you trust and know well – ask for a hug. Other people find massages helpful. Or you can try Temple Grandin’s “squeeze machine.”

On Thursday, NWS researcher combed through the wreckage left behind and determined a fire whirl — commonly known as a fire tornado — roared through the area between 7:30 p.m and 8 p.m. on July 26th.
