IS HELL ENLARGING ITSELF (ISAIAH 5:14)? Scientists Capture Mysterious Hum From Deep Inside Earth… And No One Knows What It Is – Scientists capture mysterious hum from deep inside the Earth – but no one knows what it is

The new study could help to shed on the source of the vibrations

Scientists have captured a mysterious hum coming from deep inside the Earth, but they are still no closer to working out what it is.

It has long been known that the Earth constantly generates a low-frequency vibrational signal.

The first attempt to detect this hum was made in 1959, but it wasn’t until 1998 that scientists finally proved its existence.

Since then, there have been hundreds of attempts to record the Earth’s hum, but they have all been made using seismometers on land.

Now researchers have captured the hum for the first time using seismic instruments at the bottom of the sea.

The researchers first gathered data from 57 seismometer stations located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, between 2012 and 2013.

They then applied a combination of techniques to remove interference from ocean infragravity waves, currents and electronic glitches, and corrected for the signal generated by any earthquakes.

Eventually, they were able to determine that the Earth’s natural vibration peaks at several frequencies between 2.9 and 4.5 millihertz.

These vibrations can’t be heard by people, because they are approximately 10,000 times smaller than the lower hearing threshold of the human ear (20 hertz).

However, the fact that they have been detected at the bottom of the ocean, and around 70% of the planet’s surface is covered by water, suggests that the hum is present across the entire globe.

The research team, led by Martha Deen at the Paris Institute of Earth Physics, hopes the new data will provide clues as to the source of the hum.

Seismologists have proposed many different theories to explain the continuous vibration – from atmospheric disturbances to ocean waves moving over the sea floor.

However, the study, published in Geophysical Research Letters, concludes that these theories can only explain part of the vibration.

Deen and her co-authors believe the data could also help scientists map the interior of Earth with more detail and accuracy than ever before.

Scientists traditionally study the Earth’s interior during earthquakes, but this mean they are severely limited to specific times and areas where quakes commonly occur.

Using the hum signal as a source of seismic waves would avoid this problem, because it is generated continuously, and can be detected across the planet’s surface. (Click to Source)

Huge A.I. Conference Wonders How “Ethical Conscience” Can Be Engineered Into The Living Image Of The Beast – ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SEEKS AN ETHICAL CONSCIENCE

antichrist2

LEADING ARTIFICIAL-INTELLIGENCE RESEARCHERS gathered this week for the prestigious Neural Information Processing Systems conference have a new topic on their agenda. Alongside the usual cutting-edge research, panel discussions, and socializing: concern about AI’s power.

The issue was crystallized in a keynote from Microsoft researcher Kate Crawford Tuesday. The conference, which drew nearly 8,000 researchers to Long Beach, California, is deeply technical, swirling in dense clouds of math and algorithms. Crawford’s good-humored talk featured nary an equation and took the form of an ethical wake-up call. She urged attendees to start considering, and finding ways to mitigate, accidental or intentional harms caused by their creations. “Amongst the very real excitement about what we can do there are also some really concerning problems arising,” Crawford said.

One such problem occurred in 2015, when Google’s photo service labeled some black people as gorillas. More recently, researchers found that image-processing algorithms both learned and amplified gender stereotypes. Crawford told the audience that more troubling errors are surely brewing behind closed doors, as companies and governments adopt machine learning in areas such as criminal justice, and finance. “The common examples I’m sharing today are just the tip of the iceberg,” she said. In addition to her Microsoft role, Crawford is also a cofounder of the AI Now Institute at NYU, which studies social implications of artificial intelligence.

Concern about the potential downsides of more powerful AI is apparent elsewhere at the conference. A tutorial session hosted by Cornell and Berkeley professors in the cavernous main hall Monday focused on building fairness into machine-learning systems, a particular issue as governments increasingly tap AI software. It included a reminder for researchers of legal barriers, such as the Civil Rights and Genetic Information Nondiscrimination acts. One concern is that even when machine-learning systems are programmed to be blind to race or gender, for example, they may use other signals in data such as the location of a person’s home as a proxy for it.

Some researchers are presenting techniques that could constrain or audit AI software. On Thursday, Victoria Krakovna, a researcher from Alphabet’s DeepMind research group, is scheduled to give a talk on “AI safety,” a relatively new strand of work concerned with preventing software developing undesirable or surprising behaviors, such as trying to avoid being switched off. Oxford University researchers planned to host an AI-safety themed lunch discussion earlier in the day.

Krakovna’s talk is part of a one-day workshop dedicated to techniques for peering inside machine-learning systems to understand how they work—making them “interpretable,” in the jargon of the field. Many machine-learning systems are now essentially black boxes; their creators know they work, but can’t explain exactly why they make particular decisions. That will present more problems as startups and large companies such as Google apply machine learning in areas such as hiring and healthcare. “In domains like medicine we can’t have these models just be a black box where something goes in and you get something out but don’t know why,” says Maithra Raghu, a machine-learning researcher at Google. On Monday, she presented open-source software developed with colleagues that can reveal what a machine-learning program is paying attention to in data. It may ultimately allow a doctor to see what part of a scan or patient history led an AI assistant to make a particular diagnosis.

Others in Long Beach hope to make the people building AI better reflect humanity. Like computer science as a whole, machine learning skews towards the white, male, and western. A parallel technical conference called Women in Machine Learning has run alongside NIPS for a decade. This Friday sees the first Black in AI workshop, intended to create a dedicated space for people of color in the field to present their work.

Hanna Wallach, co-chair of NIPS, cofounder of Women in Machine Learning, and a researcher at Microsoft, says those diversity efforts both help individuals, and make AI technology better. “If you have a diversity of perspectives and background you might be more likely to check for bias against different groups,” she says—meaning code that calls black people gorillas would be likely to reach the public. Wallach also points to behavioral research showing that diverse teams consider a broader range of ideas when solving problems.

Ultimately, AI researchers alone can’t and shouldn’t decide how society puts their ideas to use. “A lot of decisions about the future of this field cannot be made in the disciplines in which it began,” says Terah Lyons, executive director of Partnership on AI, a nonprofit launched last year by tech companies to mull the societal impacts of AI. (The organization held a board meeting on the sidelines of NIPS this week.) She says companies, civic-society groups, citizens, and governments all need to engage with the issue.

Yet as the army of corporate recruiters at NIPS from companies ranging from Audi to Target shows, AI researchers’ importance in so many spheres gives them unusual power. Towards the end of her talk Tuesday, Crawford suggested civil disobedience could shape the uses of AI. She talked of French engineer Rene Carmille, who sabotaged tabulating machines used by the Nazis to track French Jews. And she told today’s AI engineers to consider the lines they don’t want their technology to cross. “Are there some things we just shouldn’t build?” she asked. (Click to Source)

Will THIS Integrate With The Beast’s System? New Tattoos “Made Of Living Cells” – The Ink In This Tattoo Is Made Out Of Living Cells

A.K.A. bacteria.

p-1-these-tattoos-are-made-of-living-ink

Tattoos are all the rage at MIT these days: researchers at the university have recently produced prototypes that point to the future of biotech, from electronic tattoos that serve as interfaces to tattoos that change color based on body chemistry.

The latest? A tattoo made of living ink–genetically programmed cells that activate when exposed to different types of stimuli. While right now that means they light up when they come in contact with particular molecular compounds, there are exciting potential applications: the tattoos could be designed so that they respond to environmental pollutants or changes in temperature. That means that sometime in the future, we could all be walking around with living, responsive tattoos that tell us when it’s not safe to go outside because air pollution levels are dangerous, or even just act as a temperature gauge right on your body.

MIT researchers in mechanical engineering and bioengineering recently published a paper on their work in Advanced Materials, where they demonstrate a method to 3D print living cells–combined with a gelatinous material called hydrogel, which keeps the bacteria alive–on top of each other. This layering allowed them to build up the cell “ink” into patterns. Their prototype tattoo looks like a branching tree graph, where different parts of the graphic respond to different types of external stimuli. The next step is to create more patches designed to light up when they come in contact with particular chemicals.

The researchers also programmed some of the living bacterial cells to communicate, so that they light up in response to messages from other cells. “This is very future work, but we expect to be able to print living computational platforms that could be wearable,” graduate student and co-author Hyunwoo Yuk tells MIT News. Using this technique, scientists might be able to build a “living computer,” where layers of cells talk to each other like transistors do in electronics today. (Click to Source)

Former Google and Uber engineer is developing an AI ‘god’

Why humans will happily follow a ROBOT messiah: Religions based on AI will succeed because we tend to ‘worship supreme understanding’, claim experts

Religion That Worships Artificial Intelligence Wants Machines To Be In Charge Of The Planet

Inside The First Church Of Artificial Intelligence

The Rise of AI: Give Me That New Time Religion?

The world’s next great religion could have a ROBOT God because humans are pre-programmed to worship things more intelligent than ourselves, experts claim

Of the many significant, prophetic events that have occurred in 2017, the new push by some in Silicon Valley to begin developing an AI “god” and accompanying religion has to be close to the top in terms of significance.

Many of us who are carefully watching prophecy unfold were blindsided by this.  A development that finally brings light to Revelation 13:15.  As they say, if you see people decorating for Christmas then Thanksgiving can’t be far away.  We are now seeing the development of many events and circumstances that come to complete fruition in the Tribulation.

Humanity’s depravity and collective idiocy knows no bounds and it will take nothing less than the judgments found in Revelation for the world to finally realize the futility of worshiping anyone (or anything) other than YHWH. (Click to Source)

Why humans will happily follow a ROBOT messiah: Religions based on AI will succeed because we tend to ‘worship supreme understanding’, claim experts

angel-2549113__480

 

  • Same drive that compels people to believe in religions will also work for AI
  • People will eventually rely on a ‘robot messiah’ to solve society’s problems
  • This is because we ‘have a tendency to worship supreme understanding’
  • Last month a former Google engineer formed the world’s first church to follow an artificially intelligent being

A religion based around a robot god will succeed because humans tend to ‘worship supreme understanding’, experts have claimed.

One researcher has said the same drive that compels people to believe in higher beings and follow religions will also work for so-called AI ‘Godheads’.

Others have commented that, like religion, people will eventually rely on a ‘robot messiah’ to solve society’s problems.

Last month, former Uber and Google engineer Anthony Levandowski formed the first church to follow an artificially intelligent being.

The religion, known as ‘Way of the Future’, claims our species can better itself by following the instructions of a robot that is ‘a billion times smarter than humans’.

Now AI expert and lawyer John Mitchell has said humans have a tendency to ‘worship supreme understanding’, and that this also applies to AI.

‘We [believe] there must be some higher power that causes lightning, sunsets, and crashing waves – or at least speaks to the bottom of our beings, rather than ignore them as ho-hum background,’ he told Fox News.

Mr Mitchell said the same thing could happen with AI, adding that robots could help us better understand religion.

Dr Stephen Thaler, President and CEO of Imagination Engines and an AI and consciousness expert, said people will rely on AI to solve society’s problems.

‘An AI would provide the equivalent of a “messiah” – having many orders of magnitude more processing elements than the brain, enabling it to gift us with solutions to the most daunting social, political, economic, and environmental challenges,’ he said.

But if AI develops this level of intelligence, it might choose not to be worshipped, said author and consultant Peter Scott.

‘I would expect the AIs that evolve in the next 50 years to be very rational and, if conscious, not want to be worshipped,’ he said.

‘If they have the human race’s best interests at heart (and God help us if they don’t) then they would want us to have as much right of self determination as possible.’

The new comments come just a month after Way Of The Future (WOTF) was officially registered as a religion by Anthony Levandowski.

The ex-Google engineer, who first announced plans for the creed in May, says he is ‘raising a god’ that will that charge of humans.

WOTF will eventually have a gospel called ‘The Manual’, as well as rituals and even a physical place of worship.

Levandowski named himself as ‘dean’ of WOTF, giving him complete control until his death or resignation.

He said his robot god, which will be a ‘billion times smarter than humans’ will take charge of its subjects, who will relinquish power to a being of higher intelligence.

The filed documents for WOTF give its purpose is to ‘develop and promote the realisation of a Godhead based on Artificial Intelligence’.

Workshops and educational programs have already begun in the San Francisco area.

Levandowski says everything in the church will be open source and members of the church would have special social media accounts.

He has appointed four other people to the Council of Advisers and the listing says each week they will spend a few hours organising workshops and meetings.

In 2017, the Internal Revenue Service listed the religion as having received $20,000 (£15,000) in gifts, $1,500 (£1,100) in membership fees and $20,000 (£15,000) in other revenue.

WOTF has $7,500 (£5,700) put aside for wages, although Levandowski, who earned $120 million (£91 million) from Google, says he will not receive any money.

Anthony Levandowski is best known for helping create Google Street View and engineering Waymo and Uber’s self-driving cars.

Levandowski is currently at the heart of a legal fight between Google’s parent company Alphabet and Uber.

Waymo, the self-driving car subsidiary which Alphabet owns, is suing Uber, claiming it stole trade secrets to make their own self-driving cars.

The engineer they say is responsible for the theft is Levandowski who they allege downloaded 14,000 secret files before leaving Google in 2016 after nine years at the company.

A month after his departure, he founded Otto, a company which specialised in self-driving trucks.

Seven months later, Uber acquired Otto and Levandowski began working on the ride-sharing company’s self-driving cars.

In February this year, Alphabet filed a multi-billion lawsuit against Uber and Otto accusing it of stealing trade secrets.

Levandowski was called to give evidence in March but he pleaded the Fifth Amendment throughout, refusing to answer questions on the grounds that his answers may incriminate him.  (Click to Source)

 

 

Ancient pagan ‘gods’ reappearing around U.S., world

1st Baal, now war goddess Athena as ‘occult is soaring in popularity’
baal_temple2

They’re doing it again!

The same group that recreated the Roman triumphal arch that once welcomed travelers to the Temple of Baal is now honoring another pagan deity.

The United Arab Emirates, the Italian mission to the United Nations and the Institute for Digital Archeology have re-created a statue of the goddess Athena which once stood in Palmyra, according to Breaking Israel News.

Though Athena was venerated as a goddess of reason, she was also known as “Athena Promachos,” a war goddess, and the re-created statue features her holding a spear. The exhibit, titled “The Spirit In the Stone,” is being hosted at the United Nations headquarters in New York City.

It’s another move by globalist organizations to honor pagan deities, months after the reconstructed “Arch of Baal” went on a world tour, including being placed outside the G7 meeting of the world’s industrialized nations.

“Most people today don’t realize how much of a hold ancient pagan beliefs, practices and images still have on their lives,” said Joseph Farah, author of “The Restitution of All Things: Israel, Christians and the End of the Age.” “In fact, pagan values and traditions have never left us. Even Jews and Christians are impacted by them. And they are not innocent because the gods of paganism are actually demons, according to the Bible. It’s not something to be played with.

“The question confronting us right now is: Why would the United Nations be involved in resurrecting these occult images and icons of the past? Do they not understand what this represents – the false gods of child sacrifice and all kinds of abominations and perversions?

Joe Kovacs, author of “Shocked By The Bible 2,” says the whole sad spectacle is part of an old story.

“The promotion of pagan gods is certainly nothing new, and it again shows we’re all living in what I call ‘Opposite World,’” he explained. “It’s a world where most people do the very opposite action of what God has instructed. Our Creator tells us to have no other gods but Him, but folks do the opposite, honoring false gods.

“The Bible says Solomon, one of the wisest men who ever lived, built shrines to pagan gods such as Molech, a pagan god to whom people would burn their children alive in fires. It’s just sickening. Even God-fearing Christians today don’t realize they’re doing the very opposite of God’s instructions when they decorate trees with silver and gold and stand them up in their homes and churches every December. God personally says in the tenth chapter of Jeremiah not to do that precise heathen custom, and yet people have been tricked into decorating trees with all sorts of silver tinsel, gold garland and hanging ornaments, and they have no scriptural basis for it. For those interested in eternal life, we need to wake up and start obeying the instructions of our Maker, and stop all this pagan worthlessness.”

Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn, best known for his New York Times bestseller “The Harbinger,” believes this strange revival in the promotion of pagan gods has deep theological significance.

He noted Athena was associated with the Semitic mother goddess Asherah, whose shrines God commands to be destroyed in Deuteronomy 12. Cahn also claimed the goddess was sometimes merged with Ashtoreth, the consort of Baal in some traditions. Thus, there is a relationship between the new statue being displayed at the U.N. and the sinister arch which was displayed all over the world

“The reappearance of the gods is an amazing phenomenon,” he said. “Not long ago, the image of the Hindu god of destruction, Kali, appeared on the Empire State building. Then the Arch of the Temple of the god Baal was built in New York City. Recently, a massive idol of the god Shiva was displayed on the Washington Mall along with that of a seven-headed dragon. And now the idol of Athena appears in the United Nations.

“The mystery of ‘The Paradigm’ and ‘The Harbinger’ is that what transpired in the last days of ancient Israel before its judgment is now manifesting before our eyes. We are replaying an ancient judgment cycle. One of the manifestations that took place in ancient Israel before its destruction was the appearance throughout the land of the gods, their idols, their altars, their images. That the images of the gods are now manifesting throughout America is an ominous sign. We are replaying the judgment drama.

“When Israel turned away from God, it turned to false gods and idols. So when a nation that has once known God turns away from Him, it always turns to other gods. It may not call them gods or idols, but the reality is the same. America was founded on the word of God. And inasmuch as it followed the ways of God, it has been blessed above any other nation in the modern world. But inasmuch as it has turned from its God and His ways, it has turned to other gods and idols. And unless it turns back, unless it sees revival, it will progress to judgment.”

Pastor Bill Cloud, author of “Esau Rising,” also noted the significance of the relationship between Baal and the pagan goddess now being honored.

“I find it interesting that this latest reconstruction is of a goddess that was often linked with Baal in the Scriptures,” he said. “Most notably, this connection is seen in the confrontation Elijah had with the prophets of Baal and Ashteroth on Mount Carmel. It was there that Elijah challenged the nation to decide who they were going to serve – Baal or the God of Israel. I would suggest that the same ultimatum is being delivered to America.

“Who are you going to serve? I also found it interesting that observers are noting that where Christianity is receding, paganism is growing. This actually reflects a very important biblical principle. When a person, family or nation is devoid of the presence of God, another presence – an evil and oppressive spirit – will fill that void.

“In the Gospels, Messiah spoke of what happens when an evil spirit goes out of a man who does not allow himself to be filled with Presence of God. The unclean spirit will eventually seek to reinhabit that empty ‘house,’ bringing with him seven other spirits more wicked than he is. I fear that if we, as a nation, do not take advantage of the reprieve we have been granted – and by that I mean if we do not experience a spiritual renewal, these kinds of spirits and entities will become prevalent in our society.”

Some pastors also see last-days significance in how images of paganism and the demonic seem to be constantly promoted. Pastor Carl Gallups, who examines how prophecy is lining up with current events in his book “When The Lion Roars,” calls the Athena statue “prophetically ominous.”

“The Bible warns us that in the days before the return of Christ, there would be an unprecedented demonic outpouring,” Gallups told WND. “We are the first generation to live in the days of instantaneous communication and information technologies connecting the entire globe. The demonic have a stage like never before. And now the ‘gods’ are parading out their images, manipulating and using human agents to do so. The ‘gods’ are behind the ‘thrones’ of earthly powers. Satan is furious, he knows his time is short, as Revelation 12 says.”

Gallups warns Christians not to dismiss the appearance of these pagan symbols as simply happenstance or as a tribute to history.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that there is a demonic agenda behind the currents of what we are observing in the political earthly realm. Some might claim that it is just ‘historical recognition’ of these ‘artifacts.’ But the truth is that the first two commandments of God’s Word forbid humanity from doing such a thing – even though fallen man has persisted in the practice anyway. Today, for the first time in human history, they can ‘worship’ the idols of the ‘gods’ and the whole planet can see it and participate in it at the same time.”

Gallups says the statue is just another example in what has become a torrent of last-days signs.

“This is truly prophetic,” he said. “With Jerusalem having been just recognized as the capital of Israel, the ramping up of even more demonic outpouring will not surprise me in the least. We are living in the most prophetic times since the first coming of Jesus Christ. Sadly, so much of today’s church, especially in the United States, is completely missing what is happening right before our eyes.”

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries concurred, arguing even secular organizations are toying with demonic forces when they create tributes to paganism.

“These outfits are basically secular and perhaps don’t even understand the concept of pagan deities,” she observed. “There is likely more of a money motive, but there is also a greater ‘last days’ zeal for dark things, driven by the prince of darkness known as Satan.

“I believe the ‘god of this age’ – Satan – is behind the promotion and spread of paganism. He is making inroads wherever he can. The occult is soaring in popularity.”

The solution to the rising prominence of the occult, argues Markell, should be a new openness to discussing topics such as paganism and the paranormal in churches.

“Most Christians are sadly not informed about occult, paranormal and pagan concepts and ideas,” she said. “The pulpits today do not speak of this as such topics will not fill pews and offering plates. Many pastors do not wish to present anything but soft issues to make their people feel good. How does the average Christian learn of this unless they are plugged into solid news outlets and ministries telling the truth, since most churches won’t?”

And as paganism is increasingly promoted by some of the most powerful organizations in the world, Markell says the time for education and action is now. “There could be dreadful consequences if they don’t become more aware,” she warns. (Click to Source)

As Vladimir Putin And Russia Move Again To Protect Christianity, Evidence The Real Threats To Christians And Patriotic Americans Come From ‘Enemies Of America Within’, Not Russia!

The views expressed by story contributors to the Blogginghounds are their own and do not always align completely with those of the Blogginghounds.

Story Submitted to ANP by William B Stoecker

To hear the Demoncraps talk, Russia is our mortal enemy (but they just loved the Russians when they were communists) and Putin is a diabolical modern day Hitler, bent on world conquest. Putin, they assure us, meddled in our last election to ensure Trump’s victory. That’s their story, despite the fact that nearly a year of investigation by a pack of Trump-hating leftist attorneys has found no evidence to back it up.

We are expected to ignore the fact that the Witch Hillary, with Hussein Obama’s assent, sold a good deal of our uranium to a Russian company. But even many conservative patriots who should know better also brand Putin’s Russia as hostile, because Putin dares to have his own foreign policy and not obey D.C. How dare he! And so the two greatest nuclear powers face a deteriorating relationship and increased tensions.

Russia has some 7,000 nuclear and thermonuclear warheads with about 1,561 ready to go on 501 ICBMs, “boomer” subs, and bombers. The US has some 6,800, with about 1,393 ready to go on ICBMs, boomers, and bombers. A nuclear war, which would also include EMP attacks (which, alone, could kill up to 90 percent of us) and the meltdown of reactors, would mean the catastrophic end of civilization. Imagine walking out of your house and having your eyes melted and your skin burned all over. Imagine lying there dying in slow agony while hearing your wife and children scream in pain as they also die. And for what? So neocons can feel macho and powerful?

hillary_war_on_truth.jpg

When the USSR fell apart, the Russian leaders rightly expected that, with the end of the Cold War, the US would pull out of Europe and NATO would cease to exist. Instead, in what must have seemed to the Russians like a betrayal, we stayed in Europe and began trying to expand NATO into the former Soviet bloc countries. How would we like it if, say, the Chinese made treaties with Mexico and Canada and stationed large forces north and south of us?

Vladimir Putin was born 10/7/52 and served as a foreign intelligence officer in the Soviet KGB. He later entered politics and was Prime Minister of the Russian Federation 1999-2000, President 2000-2008, Prime Minister again 2008-2012, and President again since then. The Prime Minister is a bit like our Vice President. There is no doubt that Putin is a ruthless strong man, but the US has had good relationships and even supported leaders far more autocratic and ruthless than Putin.

At least one independent journalist critical of Putin has been murdered, but compared to the Clinton body count and the murder of Seth Rich, Putin (even if he ordered the hit, and we don’t know that he did) is a mere amateur. Unlike Slick Willy, Putin has never done a Waco, and there have been no Russian false flags comparable to Oklahoma City, WTC Act One, and 9/11. There is good evidence that our own leaders have murdered thousands of us, and we’re upset about Putin?

Our leaders wage war on Christianity, marriage and the family, and push the Glibett (GLBT) agenda on us…something undreamed of even by Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. But Putin supports Christianity and Judaism and opposes the Glibett agenda…maybe this is the real reason our leftist elites hate him. Also, he has not opened Russia’s borders to hordes of Muslims, and criminals in Russia are actually punished.

In 2014 Crimeans supposedly voted in a referendum to return to Russia. The Crimean Peninsula had been part of the Russian Empire and then the USSR since 1783, until Kruschev gave it to Ukraine (then a part of the USSR) in 1954 and Ukraine became an independent nation in 1991.

The majority of the Crimean people are ethnic Russians who speak Russian, and the Ukrainians are very closely related to Russians. But the US and the EU, responding to this “aggression,” imposed harsh economic sanctions on Russia in 2014, sanctions which have hurt the Russian economy…but also out own economy and that of the EU.

yup_russia_wants_war_not.jpg

Georgia also became an independent nation state, but Russia supported the separatist agenda of two Georgian provinces, South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Also, George II (GW Bush) had offered NATO membership to Georgia and had sent troops there on 7/15/2008 for a brief military exercise. In August, 2008 Russia, with Medvedev as President at the time and Putin as Prime Minister, invaded Georgia. Technically, this is an act of foreign aggression…but the US has troops stationed in close to half of all the countries on Earth, and has invaded Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria, among others.

So maybe we are not entitled to self-righteous wrath when the Russians invade a neighbor. Before WWII Hitler occupied the Sudetenland and then all of Czechoslovakia. But Russia, after defeating Georgia, withdrew from most of the country, save for the two provinces. Again, while we may disapprove of the invasion, this does not show Medvedev or Putin to be bent on world conquest. It is fairly clear that Russia wants a sphere of influence in neighboring countries, and buffer states against any NATO encroachment. This is not altogether unreasonable.

Russia sent troops into Syria at the invitation of Syrian leader Assad to support his government in its civil war. Assad and most of the Syrian elites are Alawite Muslims, a subgroup of Shia Islam, but many of the people are Sunni Muslims, and they, led by extremist factions including ISIS, were the rebels. Despite the fact that Syria had been our ally in the First Gulf War, and despite the fact that Assad, by Middle Eastern standards, was relatively sane and moderate (he actually protected Christians), the US supported the rebels (including the Islamists who became ISIS) and worked to help them overthrow the lawful government, partly because Syria was friendly with Iran, and Iran has supported international terrorism.

msm_beat_dead_russian_horse.jpg

But Saudi Arabia has done even more to support terrorism, including funding extremist mosques here in the US, yet we pretend that the Saudi royals are our friends. It is not clear if our Deep State is still working against the Syrian government or not, for almost nothing our own government says can be believed.

Our hostility to Russia has led Putin to mend fences with Turkey, a nation that has always been either an enemy or an unfriendly neighbor to Russia, and seek a closer relationship with China, despite longstanding border disputes with that nation.

It is not clear if Trump actually accepts the neocon version of things or if, due to the farcical “investigation” of his “Russian collusion,” he is afraid to normalize relations with Russia. We face a real danger of nuclear war and/or EMP attack over the situation in Korea, our confrontations with China in the South China Sea, and the increasing tension and paranoia between us and Russia. And the root of the problem is not Putin, imperfect though he may be. The real threat is from the neocons who control our own Deep State.

Specifically, the Catholic leader said in an interview Wednesday he would prefer to adjust the phrase “lead us not into temptation,” saying that it too strongly suggested that God leads people to sin.

“That is not a good translation,” the pope said, according to Reuters.

The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative, Francis said.

He added that the phrase used by the French, or similar wording, should then be implemented around the globe.

The prayer originated from Jesus’s language of Aramaic. It was then translated to ancient Greek, and later to Latin.

The pope earlier this week weighed in on President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and would aim to move its embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Francis said he was “profoundly concerned” and appealed that “everyone respects the status quo of the city.” (Click to Source)

Hell Hole on Earth Discovered at Fukushima

Most people think they have to die to go to hell but that is not true anymore. Today, in the mainstream press, they announced the existence of a hell hole in Japan at the destroyed nuclear power station at Fukushima. We have a hot spot on our planet that has never been imagined before and in the face of it human technology is helpless.

At the levels of radiation now being found a Fukushima, a robot would be able to operate for less than two hours before it was destroyed. And Japan’s National Institute of Radiological Sciences said medical professionals had never even thought about encountering this level of radiation in their work.

The accident is enormous in its medical implications. Through future years, too long to contemplate, we will witness an epidemic of cancer as people inhale the radioactive elements, eat radioactive vegetables, rice and meat, and drink radioactive milk and teas. Year by year, decade through relentless decade, the radiation will build up yet modern medicine does not seem concerned.

New readings at Fukushima have recorded the highest radiation levels seen since the triple core meltdown that occurred in 2011. Readings inside the containment vessel of reactor no. 2 are as high as 530 Sieverts per hour, a dosage that would be fatal dozens and dozens of times over if a human were to be exposed to it. The previous high was a still very fatal rate of 73 Sieverts per hour.

The blazing radiation reading was taken near the entrance to the space just below the pressure vessel, which contains the reactor core. The highest radiation levels ever measured at Chernobyl were 300 Sieverts per hour; an incomprehensibly high dose which can kill a man almost instantly.

The new record at Fukushima of 530 Sieverts per hour is 70% higher than that of Chernobyl. The 530 Sievert reading was recorded some distance from the melted fuel, so in reality it could be 10 times higher than recorded, said Hideyuki Ban, co-director of Citizens’ Nuclear Information Center.

To put this in perspective, radiation is usually measured in thousandths of a Sievert, called millisieverts. For example, most people receive around 2.4 millisieverts per year from background radiation, or only 0.0002739726 per hour.

According to the Kyodo news agency, the institute estimates that exposure to one Sievert of radiation could lead to infertility, loss of hair and cataracts. One Sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea; 5 Sieverts would kill half those exposed to it within a month, and a single dose of 10 Sieverts would prove fatal within weeks.

How Come We Do Not Hear More about Fukushima?

It was just recently said that, “It is not every day that a U.S. president calls journalists among the most dishonest human beings on earth.” This dishonesty is displayed in its full power with nuclear power issues and specifically with Fukushima where things are so bad it is basically prohibited to talk about it openly in the press. In fact, as I was reading the essays on Yahoo about the record amount of radiation the essays disappeared off the news summary list.

Most of this radiation is being washed out to sea and it is quite quickly destroying the Pacific Ocean and much of the life in it. We have no idea how much of the radiation is escaping into the atmosphere but we do know that during the first few weeks of the nuclear accident, because of the explosions, huge amounts of radiation were released into the atmosphere and it circled around the globe especially in the northern hemisphere.

There is no way for anyone to say that having a point of output of radiation of 530 Sieverts an hour is safe or how many decades it will take a radioactive output of this magnitude to badly pollute our precious world. None of this is good news for our children. Anyone who says nuclear power is safe is lying. Anyone who says nuclear radiation is not dangerous is lying.

They Don`t Want to Say Where These Clouds are Coming From

Researchers have discovered the existence of high-altitude “radiation clouds that can expose airplane passengers to high levels of radiation. These clouds were discovered as part of the NASA-funded Automated Radiation Measurements for Aerospace Safety (ARMAS) program.

It’s widely known that radiation levels are generally higher in the upper atmosphere versus on the ground, simply due to the higher levels of cosmic rays. However, when studying these levels of radiation, researchers detected small pockets where radiation levels suddenly spiked, up to double the normal level. These spikes could not be explained by normal sources of radiation like cosmic rays. Frequent flyers, and first trimester fetuses may be at greater risk due to their longer exposure times or greater vulnerability.

How Come Doctors Don`t Say More About Radiation Dangers?

Because they are among the primary users of nuclear radiation, using it for all kinds of dangerous tests. A single CT scan of the chest is equal to about 350 standard chest X-rays. They are using radiation, a cause of cancer, to try to treat cancer and that usually does not turn out too well. Because they are not honest with themselves they cannot be honest with their patients, who should be told that many of the tests they are being given by doctors expose them to more dangerous radiation.

Like global warming, vaccines and now Islamic terrorism and immigration, there is no real discussion, no real science being sported in the news so the public is left completely in the dark about radiation exposures. The people with the real power in this world insist that we will always see and define the situation as safe, no need to worry or do anything like drink lots of iodine, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium and start off each day drinking a glass of ultra-pure edible clay. Edible clay is one of the most basic detoxification substances. It helps make sure absorbed radioactive particles pass through instead of into us. When was the last time you remember your doctor telling you to take magnesium or any of these other substances, or even sulfur to reduce the risk that our exposure to increasing levels of radiation do not lead to cancer.

One Year Ago

RT Russian News reported, “Deadly radiation levels of up to 9.4 Sieverts per hour have been recorded at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant – enough to kill a person in less than an hour if directly exposed, local media reports. The mortal radiation reading was taken in a small room, using a remote-controlled robot. The reading of 9.4 Sieverts (Sv) per hour was taken during the September 4-25 checks. Immediate radiation exposure around the Fukushima nuclear power following the deadly incident reached 400 millisieverts (mSv) per hour in places. One millisievert is a thousandth of a sievert, therefore the new 9.4 Sv reading is 23.5 times higher than the radiation level recorded in March, 2011.”

The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says levels of radioactivity in underground tunnels have sharply risen. Tokyo Electric Power Company has detected 482,000 becquerels per liter of radioactive cesium in water samples taken from the tunnels on December 3rd. That’s 4000 times higher than data taken in December last year.

Officials revealed that about 2 Trillion becquerels of Fukushima radioactive material flowed into the ocean every month during 2013 — “Deadly strontium” releases are now more than double cesium — “Strontium gets into your bones… it changes the equation.” Strontium is a potentially lethal alkaline earth metal poses the biggest immediate concern, because, unlike cesium, it doesn’t get trapped in soil and tends to accumulate in bones of fish and animals if ingested.

Everyone wants to forget all about Fukushima

Everyone wants to forget all about Fukushima for who wants to remember their worst nightmares? The Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown disaster “is not over and will never end,” warns Dr. Helen Caldicott, Nobel Peace Prize nominee and holder of 21 honorary doctorate degrees.

It was reported by Andy Gunderson during the first year of the Fukushima meltdown that people on the west coast of the United States and Canada, Hawaii and Alaska were bearing some of the worst of the radiation and people then, and now, are not taking evasive action. Gunderson said in an exclusive interview with Chris Martenson that, “I am in touch with some scientists now who have been monitoring the air on the West Coast and in Seattle for instance, in April of 2011, the average person in Seattle breathed in 5-10 hot particles a day, depending on how active they are.” This means even if Fukushima disappeared today we should already be treating ourselves and our children for exposure.

Conclusion

Dr. Brownstein writes, “If there is enough inorganic, non-radioactive iodine in our bodies, the radioactive fallout has nowhere to bind in our bodies. It will pass through us, leaving our bodies unharmed. It is important to ensure that we have adequate iodine levels BEFORE this fallout hits.”

Everyone should be making sure that they are taking enough minerals because radioactive substances mimic their non-radioactive mineral substances. Strontium mimics calcium, for example, making it extremely dangerous to all life forms once it is absorbed. The toxic substances such as Tritium, Cesium, Plutonium and Strontium are being carried everywhere by winds, rain and ocean currents, entering the food chain through seaweed and seafood, building up high levels of toxicity in the fish – and humans – at the top end of the consumption chain.

Fukushima is Japan’s and the world’s radiation nightmare that will not go away in our lifetimes nor our children’s or grandchildren’s. The Fukushima nuclear power plant is hemorrhaging radioactive toxic waste into the ocean and though we are told not to panic, nor even to be casually concerned, the situation is dangerous and critical to future life on earth.

46 EARTHQUAKES HAVE SHAKEN CALIFORNIA OVER THE PAST 24 HOURS

That is approximately twice the normal daily number, and much of the shaking has taken place in the southern part of the state

quake

That is approximately twice the normal daily number, and much of the shaking has taken place in the southern part of the state.  In recent weeks I have been writing repeatedly about the alarming seismic activity that we have been seeing along the west coast, and many believe that the potential for a megaquake is significantly higher than normal right now.  Unfortunately, most residents of California are not paying any attention to what is going on at all, and so if there is a major event they will be completely blindsided by it.

When a magnitude 4.0 earthquake struck near Julian, California on Wednesday, that immediately got my attention, and that quake was followed very rapidly by several others…

The shaking began at 4:33 p.m. on Wednesday when a 4.0 quake occurred nearly 10 miles beneath the earth’s surface, just east of the Earthquake Valley fault, one of the most active systems in Southern California. The temblor had originally been listed at 4.2.

The main shock was followed five minutes later by a 3.0 aftershock in the same spot. Then a 3.6 quake occurred near the same spot at 7:57 p.m. Wednesday.

Seismologists say that a 3.6 quake broke in the same area at 2:32 a.m. on Thursday, continuing the seismic spasm.

Of course Julian is not the only one that has seen a substantial earthquake over the past 24 hours.  Just 6 hours ago, a magnitude 3.2 earthquake struck Gonzales, California.  Anything in the magnitude 3 or magnitude 4 range is not going to cause any significant damage, but the concern is that these smaller quakes may be building up to something larger.

According to a study published by the USGS, there is a “99% chance” that California will be hit by a major earthquake within the next 30 years…

In a 2008 study, the US Geological Survey found there’s a greater than 99% chance of a 6.7 magnitude quake or larger hitting the California area over the next 30 years. That type of quake along the San Andreas Fault in Southern California could kill an estimated 1,800 people, the study said, injure 53,000 and result in $214 billion in damage. California’s infrastructure could be crippled for weeks, if not months.

Such an event would definitely be catastrophic, but California could definitely recover.

However, if the California coastline were to be hit by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake, the devastation would be unlike anything that we have ever seen before in American history.

Not too long ago, the Los Angeles Times published an article that discussed what the damage from a magnitude 8.2 earthquake would look like.  The following is a short excerpt from that article…

Main freeways to Las Vegas and Phoenix that cross the San Andreas fault would be destroyed in this scenario; Interstate 10 crosses the fault in a dozen spots, and Interstate 15 would see the roadway sliced where it crosses the fault, with one part of the roadway shifted from the other by 15 feet, Jones said.

“Those freeways cross the fault, and when the fault moves, they will be destroyed, period,” Jones said. “To be that earthquake, it has to move that fault, and it has to break those roads.”

The aqueducts that bring in 88% of Los Angeles’ water supply and cross the San Andreas fault all could be damaged or destroyed, Jones said.

And remember, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake would be far, far worse than a magnitude 8.2 earthquake.

At the same time all of this shaking has been happening in California, we have also seen very disturbing seismic activity elsewhere on the globe.

For example, just recently a supervolcano in Russia shot hot volcanic ash “six miles into the sky”…

A Siberian super-volcano is worrying scientists after it’s shocking and sudden eruption flung hot ash six miles into the sky. This volcano is one of the most active in Russia.

Scientists working at the geophysical department of the Russian Academy of Science in north-eastern Russia’s Kamchatka Krai region have confirmed the giant eruption took place at the site of the Shiveluch Volcano yesterday over a 20 minute period.  They also verified and saw the volcano spew piping hot ash 10 kilometers (6 miles) into the sky.  So far, no locals or villages have been affected by this volcano’s eruption, but it’s sparking fears that a larger and more powerful explosion could occur in the very near future.

A major eruption of just a single supervolcano anywhere in the world could cast enormous amounts of dust and ash into the atmosphere and cool global temperatures significantly for up to a decade.  If that happened, we would see massive crop failures all over the planet and millions upon millions of people could end up dying from the resulting famine.

With each passing year our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and scientists assure us that absolutely cataclysmic seismic events are in our future.  Now is the time to get prepared, but unfortunately most people aren’t listening to the warnings. (Click to Source)
