Unspun News for the 30th of December, 2014

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

WORLD
“From Energy War to Currency War: America’s Attack on the Russian Ruble” (and upon - ultimately - China.)

Greece - “After three failed votes within parliament, Greek public will get chance to vote for new government.”  Worm turning?

PCR - “Washington Has Shaped 2015 to Be a Year of Conflict. The Conflict Could Be Intense”

“The Syrian Army Seizes a Large Cache of Supplies from Saudi Arabia”  “he 5 supply trucks that were seized by the 11th Tank Division contained a number of boxes that originated from Saudi Arabia that also read “food aid” – inside the boxes were first-aid kits, 40 grad rockets, 20 mortar shells, 23mm machine gun ammunition, 14 half barrels filled with C-4 explosives, 3 mortar launchers, …...“

UNDER-REPORTED
A real ‘should read’ - and NOT ‘only in America’.  “The Zombiefication Of America“.  It is (sadly) REAL.

The Sony hack - “"Sony was not just hacked, this is a company that was essentially nuked from the inside," said Stammberger.”

Torture - “But Messrs. Cheney and Bush didn’t institute torture to garner information. They did it because the publicized use of torture weakens political opposition.“  Which bears out that the only two polarities that matter are …. Love and Fear.  Deciding which polarity you are viewing is the only decision you ever have to make.
“The Political Capital Of Fear: How It Helps Governments And Why”  Just coincidence, eh?  Not.
“Rewarding the criminals: how global capitalism preys upon the poor”  (Author is a Kathmandu-based freelance writer who regularly blogs at South Asia and Beyond.)

“We see the royals constantly in the media, yet very rarely in public. Who are the Royal Family? Where do they come from? How, and why did they acquire the name “Windsor”?  Historian, researcher, author and prolific filmmaker, Christopher Everard, is offering some answers to these questions about a much-maligned, and often misunderstood Royal Family…“  Politically incorrect - but probably historically accurate…..

NUCLEAR
Fukushima - “Photos taken during the removal of the cover on unit 1 showed some additional conditions on the refueling floor that had not been apparent until now.”

Fuku. Unit 2 - Trench concrete work failing?

EARTH
M6.1 @ 13km, Mindanao, Philippines.

“At least three people have been killed and thousands have fled their homes as a tropical storm batters southern Philippines with strong winds and heavy rain.“

M5.6 @ 20km, S.Sandwich Is region.

“A blast of cold Arctic air is likely to be plunging all the way to Mexico by New Years Day”

Las Vegas, Nevada - “Very Unusual Weather” the Weather Service calls it. “Potentially historic.”

“Extreme Cold Warning for Ontario“  Also Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Don’cha just love this global warming stuff?

UNCLASSIFIED

ALTERNATIVE
David Arenson - “Is the whole truth in the SUN and the STARS, in the fact that it is CONSCIOUSNESS that creates and binds the whole universe together, in the idea that all is LOVE, and all that is important for us to know is LOVE? This is our infinite potential, our breathtaking universe. Is this the ultimate message behind it all?”

“Cultivating consciousness in an unconscious world”  “Politicians constantly evade the truth. Why can they get away with it? According to a recent study conducted at Harvard University, it’s because people have such terrible attention spans.“

PREDICTION / FORECASTS
PCR - “Washington Has Shaped 2015 to Be a Year of Conflict. The Conflict Could Be Intense”  As forecasts go, this one is (unfortunately) probably as good as they get.

ASTRONOMIC
A new space mission target - retrieve an asteroid?

“Sunspot AR2251 is growing rapidly and could soon pose a threat for M-class solar flares.” 
ALSO - “Earth is entering a high-speed stream of solar wind, and this is causing geomagnetic storms around the poles. A G1-class storm is underway now. Arctic sky watchers should be alert for auroras.”

“If what is seen on Mars took place in the presence of planetary lightning bolts and was not the result of ice or water moving across the surface, should ideas about similar observations here on Earth be reconsidered?“

HEALTH
An excellent infographic re water - Information, advice and tips.  You WILL learn something useful here - I’ll bet!

GENERAL / USEFUL
“Internet scams: Why Australians are being ripped off in record numbers”
And how to avoid being scammed…..
