Unspun News for the 21st of January, 2015

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

Of all commentators, WILLIAM BLUM remains one of my top favourites.  THIS is why - he always burrows to the roots.  From the Bay of Pigs to Paris …. Here’s the meat and potatoes…..
WORLD
Haiti  - “Yes, there is very much corruption with the [Michel] Martelly administration. He is in essence a puppet of the United States, and so yes, without a doubt there is current corruption that is throughout the Haitian government …”  Different song book, same old song…..

QZ8501 - “...radar data showed the Airbus A320-200 appeared at one point to be climbing at a rate of 6,000 feet (1,800 metres) a minute before the crash.”  That’s  climbing at 108 km/hr…….  67mph ….  “it is rare even for a fighter jet to be able to climb 6,000 feet per minute,"   Violent, chaotic, random…..

JONATHAN COOK - “Netanyahu and Europe’s Far Right Find Common Ground”  Of COURSE……  what he says is right - though trite.

“The New York Times Sinks to a New Journalistic Low in its Reporting on Ukraine“  Again - of course …..
“In the wake of the terrorist attack against the French satirical newspaper «Charlie Hebdo», it has become apparent that the magazine’s editorial chiefs killed in the attack on its headquarters in Paris and groups such as FEMEN and Pussy Riot are all connected in a campaign to disparage Islam and Christianity.”  No kidding?

UNDER-REPORTED
“British security agency GCHQ has stored thousands of emails from journalists working for the world’s biggest news organizations, according to a new batch of Edward Snowden leaks.“

“President Barack Obama will enlist his Cabinet members to push for Fast Track trade authority on Capitol Hill.   Fast Track would speed along passage of theTrans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), (…) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), (…) Both agreements have been criticized for the secrecy in which they are being developed, as well as their potentially negative impacts on jobs, wages, food safety, workers' rights, and public health.”  This is NOT GOOD…..

“The Obama administration continues to drag its feet on releasing U.S. intelligence evidence on who shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 six months ago, a failure that has given the guilty parties time to scatter and has created a new breeding ground for conspiracy theories.”  Of course …...

“Vladimir Putin can put up with the fact that he is not invited to the major event at Auschwitz marking 70 years since inmates of the Nazi death camp were liberated by the Red Army.”  Subtle, convenient, and obvious, eh?

NUCLEAR

EARTH
“We're not talking about a few dead fish littering your local beach. Mass die-offs are individual events that kill at least a billion animals, wipe out over 90 percent of a population, or destroy 700 million tons (…) worth of animals.  And according to new research, such die-offs are on the rise.”  Sign of the times….?

Oz - “Heavy rain and storms hit coastal areas from Brisbane to far north Queensland, with strong winds downing power lines and trees.  The harsh weather began on Monday afternoon and continued overnight.”  Violent, chaotic, unpredictable…

Finally - a GOOD use of drones …   “Spy Drones Over North Carolina Factory Farms Reveal ‘Lagoons Of Filth,’ Filmmaker Says“

M5.6 @ 185km, Guatemala 

“India, home to most of the world's wild tigers, has reported a 30 per cent jump in numbers over four years in a rare piece of good news for conservationists.“

The Doritos blitz ---- here is the 1 min anti-palm oil video that has gone viral - and so it should!!!!!  Take a minute …..

4 min video - “Of The Largest Breakage Of Ice From A Glacier Ever Filmed Is Absolutely Frightening”  Totally awesome - once you figure the sheer SCALE out….

Russia - Siberia - “Abnormally heavy snowfall is threatening to decimate much of Siberia’s unique wildlife including the rare Amur tiger, experts have warned. Parts of the Russian Far East are covered in snow up to one metre deep, burying many animals and leaving others struggling to move or find food.“

“Despite fears that global warming is harming the Arctic region faster than the rest of the world, Greenland is defying climate scientists and currently growing at its fastest rate in four years.“

US - Texas - “This means that Houston has endured three of the coldest starts on record in the past 15 years.”

“GISS & NCDC Need to Be More Open with the Public when Making Proclamations about Global Warming Records”.  Bottom line - …. “Right now, without the up-front qualifiers in every document and presentation by GISS and NCDC about the uncertainties inherent in data—and in climate models—the public is being misled about human-induced global warming and climate change.”  No kidding…..?

“An intense hail storm struck parts of United Arab Emirates (UAE) on January 19, 2015 covering extensive stretches of desert country under a blanket of hail.“  Chaotic, violent, random…..

“Severe Tropical Storm "Chedza" made landfall north of Morondava, Madagascar between 15:00 and 16:00 UTC on January 16, 2015 bringing heavy thunderstorm rains across much of the country. “

“Heavy rainfall in Borneo and Sumatra over the last 3 days has left parts of Malaysia and Indonesia struggling with yet more flooding. Malaysia is still recovering from the floods of December 2014 in the north of the country, which were some of the worst flooding seen in years.”

UNCLASSIFIED

ALTERNATIVE
YES, this guy is “Alternative”.  “The world’s “humblest” president, the “poorest president” in terms of personal wealth, the “most radical.” How did one man earn so many superlative epithets?”  He is also a light in the darkness of the planet……  If they were all like him……..

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Solar activity is very low. Not one of the sunspots on the solar disk is flaring, and as a result the sun's X-ray output has flatlined. “   Paying attention, are we?  It’s the SUN…..

“Previous Picture of the Day articles take issue with computer models versus observational evidence. In the Electric Universe paradigm, laboratory experiments requiring relatively inexpensive equipment can be conducted and compared to the theory. Since electricity’s effects are scaleable by many orders of magnitude, how it behaves in space is often consistent with its behavior in the lab.“

HEALTH
Fasting for as little as three days can regenerate the entire immune system, even in the elderly, scientists have found in a breakthrough described as "remarkable".  Although fasting diets have been criticised by nutritionists for being unhealthy, new research suggests starving the body kick-starts stem cells into producing new white blood cells, which fight off infection.”
And here’s 2 articles on managing that - 

“...  Even if we want to, we can’t eliminate our exposure, or our children’s, to RF/EMF.  But, we may need to limit that exposure, when possible.”… “That was among the conclusions of a survey article published in the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastructure entitled “Why children absorb more microwave radiation than adults: The consequences.”

GENERAL / USEFUL
“A local team of amateur archaeological sleuths claim to have discovered evidence which contradicts the accepted theory humans came "out of Africa", and instead - gasp - modern man emerged in and spread from Down Under.”

=========================================
“If you always read what you've always read -
You'll always learn what you've always learned -
And you'll always know what you've always known...…
Go beyond.”
