Unspun News for the 3rd of January, 2015

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

WORLD
MUST READ - “The Velocity Of Money In The U.S. Falls To An All-Time Record Low”  This is  economics written for the ornery bloke - ABC-123 terms.  This will NOT be ‘only in America’ - this will affect the entire globe.  Any exceptions will be stand-out surprises.

“The corporate media chorus willfully ignores that U.S. actions, not Islam, fuel jihadism.”  “With the launch of our latest multi-billion-dollar war in Iraq and Syria, the United States has now bombed at least 13 countries in the Greater Middle East since 1980.”  Soooooo- Why do they hate us?

“On December 17, 2014, the Obama administration announced changes in relations with Cuba “ … “The day after the Cuba announcement, president Obama signed legislation imposing sanctions against the Venezuelan [6] government.”  Go figure ….

“The AirAsia jet which plunged into the Java Sea rose up as fast as a fighter jet and then dropped almost vertically into the water as if being thrust down by a giant hand, crash experts agreed today.  Their conclusion is that the Airbus 320-200 was in the grip of weather so freakishly extreme that there was nothing the pilots could have done to save the jet and all 162 people on board.  … The plane behaved in ways ‘bordering on the edge of logic,’ …. ”  Is this a first example of even more violent weather events?

UNDER-REPORTED
“Civilian Deaths Soar in Iraq as US Soldiers Dig In for 'Long Haul';  Increasing numbers of American soldiers are on their way to Iraq even as the threat of combat casualties for those already on the ground appears to be rapidly escalating”
“Russia Revises Military Doctrine and Upgrades Strategic Nuclear Forces” … “The new provisions are introduced as a reaction to the events in Ukraine and around it, as well as in Africa, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan which threaten the Russian Federation.”  Neither Russia nor China is about to roll over and play dead….

“South Africa, India Shamed: Endless tide of Gender Based Violence “  What sort of consciousness is at work here?  And what has nurtured it?

NUCLEAR
“The Fourth Winter of Fukushima – Living in Internal Exile”

EARTH
M5.2 @ 2km, Vancouver Is, Canada.

Bougainville Is (Solomons) - Bagana volcano - “the Darwin VAAC reported that on 29 December an ash plume from Bagana rose to an altitude of 2.4 km (8,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted almost 95 km NE.”

“Several days of torrential rain has led to widespread flooding across Uruguay. Among the worst hit is the capital city, Montevideo, much of which has been left under water.“

The Greenland ice melt: “The evidence for geologically induced geothermal heat flow on the Greenland continent shows that recent reports from NASA on Greenland ice melt from global warming are premature and ill informed.”  Interesting data!
“The Greenland ice sheet has gained record amounts of ice this season (300 billion tons) with a record one day accumulation of 12 billion tons in mid-September.“

“BRITAIN’S chaotic climate threatens to unleash A YEAR of freakish weather starting with a FIVE-MONTH Arctic freeze.“

““In Rome, arctic-inspired winds brought temperatures as low as minus eight degrees Celsius,” … “Palermo woke up under a white blanket,”Dozens of cars are trapped in snows towards Tripoli.”

Snow in Algeria, Libya - note the comment by Lyn: ”Snow across North Africa……NOT reported on BBC TV , of course !!!”  It’s not what you see - it’s what you DON’T see  that matters!
Which comment of mine fits perfectly with this cherry-picking story:
“Climate And Truth: A Tale Of Immorality?”  Get the message?

UNCLASSIFIED
Reading and counting vs thinking and creativity ….  “The Federal Government-commissioned report released in October last year recommended Australia's school curriculum should refocus teaching in early childhood years on literacy and numeracy.“  A thinking, reasoning public?  Ye gods - they might vote! Nightmare!

ALTERNATIVE
“Cosmic rays are light waves of a very high frequency that have been shown to transform human DNA –therefore affecting human evolution.”  Lotsa interesting info here …...

PREDICTION / FORECASTS
“In 2000, Here’s What the CIA Predicted for 2015” “Here were some of those predictions, according to a December 2000 story from the Telegraph.“  As crystal balls go - damn good…..

ASTRONOMIC
“Growing sunspot AR2253 has a 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class solar flares.”

Pic - “Comet C/2014Q2 Lovejoy “  WHAT a tail!!!!!!

X-ray eruption - “ … SWIFT satellite detected a stellar flare with X-ray emissions larger than anything they expected to witness from DG Canum Venaticorum, a “normal” red dwarf star.”

HEALTH
“As Roundup – now a ubiquitous agrochemical contaminant found in our rain, air and water -- continues to accumulate in larger amounts in the environment, concern grows that it may be upsetting the natural microbial balance upon which our own microbial health depends on.”  You gotta wonder - is this mass suicide by stupidity, or a very covert, subtle and patient attack on the planet?

GENERAL / USEFUL
“NASA has a lot of satellites in orbit staring at the Earth. I knew that, but I hadn't quite realized just how many were currently active!”  Info overload!

=========================================
“If you want to be incrementally better: Be competitive.
 If you want to be exponentially better: Be cooperative.”
