Unspun News for the 15th of January, 2015

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

WORLD
Interesting views of Netanyahu’s trip to Paris….. Worth a ponder….

“White House: 'We Look Forward' to Working with GOP on Limitless War Authorization;   Republicans leadership told to expect language from Obama administration that would provide new authorization for war in Iraq and Syria“  “Limitless War” - do YOU “look forward” to that prospect?
ALSO - 

Dmitry Orlov - “Recent events, (…..) have caused a certain phase transition to occur within Russian society, which, I believe, is very poorly, if at all, understood in the west. This lack of understanding puts Europe at a significant disadvantage in being able to negotiate an end to this crisis.” This casts a different light on recent events …..
“What would it be like if we really lived in a democracy?” (….) “But what is usually called democracy is in fact an oligarchy of elected representatives responsible to the business interests who bankrolled their campaign. If people were actually given the opportunity to choose democracy, they might do so, provided they understood what the word actually means. Our one uncontested example is ancient Athens.”  

UNDER-REPORTED
“...Tony Abbott says he "rather likes" the controversial cover of the latest edition of French magazine Charlie Hebdo, adding that "I believe in free speech - I absolutely believe in free speech."  Weeellll that’s good. I wonder how he feels about that sect who worship an image of a bloke being tortured? Weird stuff, this religion business…   “Oh would that God, the gift tae gie’ us, tae see oursel’s as ithers see us …”  Onya,  Burnsie.

“I have come to realize is that when Beijing makes a major policy change, they make it carefully and with great deliberation. And when they arrive at a new consensus, they execute it with remarkable effect on all levels. That is the secret to their thirty-year economic miracle. Now China’s top leadership has made such a policy decision. It will transform our world over the next decade.”  Interesting ….

If you like The Saker, make a note of these site addresses he has posted…..

THIERRY MEYSSAN - “While millions of French just came to stand without hesitation in defense of freedoms of expression and worship, politicians and the press, which one and the other constantly undermine them, have seized the opportunity to recover their virginity. For Thierry Meyssan, the government has led an extensive manipulation to cast itself at the head of a great popular event and is now looking for ways to justify a new military operation in Libya.“

NUCLEAR
“Fukushima released 13,000,000,000 times more neutrons than initially estimated — “Obvious implication for human health” — Gov’t: “Neutron radiation is the most severe and dangerous radiation” known to mankind; Can travel great distances”  Something like this has been sub-surface all along.  It had to be.  OK - now what?

EARTH
Oz - “Birdsville sees more rain in first two weeks of 2015 than all of 2014”

Hobart floods - pix.  Chaotic, violent, random………..

M5.3 @ 60km, E’n Sichuan, China.

M3.7 @ 0 km, Savage River, Tas.  I felt this - was about 150k west of me.  Getting a bit local!!!!

UK - “The Met Office advise drivers to be prepared for disruption and difficult conditions, as they issue either ice or snow warnings for most of the UK”
ALSO - “Britain braced for cyclone”

Alberta - “Record snowfall Saturday in Grande Prairie”

“That Woods Hole study was confirmed by today’s NOAA  Arctic radar map which shows the Arctic Ice Cap at more than 4,000,000 square miles, larger than on any December 28 in the past five years. Reaching the North Pole requires either a dog sled or a nuclear sub; Al Gore’s cruise ship will stay in the tropics. At the South Pole,  Antarctic ice coverage is at the highest extent since radar measurement began 35 years ago.“  Ever get the feeling you’ve been had?

“Areas of Bolivia and Peru have been seeing heavy rainfall for the last two weeks. Two people died after flooding in Santa Cruz, Bolivia during the first week of January 2015.“

UNCLASSIFIED
Interesting research data from Norway - “People born around the lowest point of the 11-year cycle of solar activity may live five years longer than those born when the sun is most energetic, according to new research.” … “Solar activity at birth decreased the probability of survival to adulthood,” thus truncating average lifespan, the paper concludes.“

ALTERNATIVE
4 min video - “What Have We Become?“  Some seriously good ponder-material here ……  and it MATTERS.

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
Beagle 2 …… Heel, boy!!!!!!  Has he been found?  On Mars?

“One of the Milky Way’s Arms Might Encircle the Entire Galaxy”

“NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on Jan. 15th when a CME is expected to sideswipe Earth's magnetic field. The storm cloud was propelled in our direction by a solar filament eruption two days ago.”

HEALTH
“Nokia’s former Technology Chief, Matti Niemelä, was involved in the development the world’s first mobile phones, but fell seriously ill himself from mobile-phone microwave radiation.“

GENERAL / USEFUL
“A pair of Papua New Guinean fishermen who survived more than three months adrift in the Pacific will return home this week after recovering from their ordeal…”  If anyone can do that, it’s dem island pellas….  Phenomenal seafarers….

“Climbing Tasmania's Totem Pole: Climbers get their 'jollies', despite the weather“  All I can say is - O, M, G……..
And - even worse -  a 7minute video……..
