Unspun News for the 22nd of February, 2015

By transients.info's contributing news service, Unspun

“To see such a young person grasp the cage in which we live is also to understand that he grew up with the Internet his entire life and was thus able to inform himself of things that have taken previous generations a lifetime to understand - if they ever got to this point of awareness. So, this is less about beating ourselves up for the past, than it is about seizing the moment”  There IS hope - as long as young people like this can KNOW it is there and hang on to it.  A VERY valuable 8 minutes of time - SPEND IT!!
WORLD
PEPE ESCOBAR - The rise, and rise, and RISE of China.  Lots to think about here …..  “What’s certain is that the Chinese caravan, much in contrast with the dogs of war (and austerity) pivoting across the West, has already pivoted towards “win-win” pan-Eurasia integration.”

Despite having led the Nato bombing of Serbia, Tony Blair will be the adviser to its Prime Minister - and Blair’s services will be paid for by the United Arab Emirates.  Can things get any bizarrererer????  (Actually - Yes.)

“India’s Looming Land Wars“ “It took almost 120 years for the Indian Parliament to “unanimously” repeal the much criticized, draconian, colonial Land Acquisition Act (1894) and replace it with “The Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013”.  And guess what - new amendments now suit Big Corps…..
MIKE WHITNEY - Ukraine - “In less than a year, the United States has toppled the democratically-elected government of Ukraine, installed a Washington-backed stooge in Kiev, launched a bloody and costly war of annihilation on Russian-speaking people in the East, thrust the economy into a downward death spiral, and reduced the nation to an anarchic, failed state destined to endure a vicious fratricidal civil war for as far as the eye can see.”

“French President Francois Hollande said Friday at a joint news conference with  German Chancellor Angela Merkel that he was unable to confirm the presence of   Russian military hardware in Ukraine.”  No need - they get the American stuff from the surrendering Poroshenko .mil  …….

“James Petras was Director of the Center for Mediterranean Studies in Athens (1981-1984) and adviser to Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou (1981-84). Here he analyzes the Greek crisis and its issues within the European Union.“

UNDER-REPORTED
An interesting ‘side-light’ on Greece’s new government….  “My friend Karma texted me yesterday: “Syriza,” he said, “was given the choice between capitalism and socialism. It chose capitalism, and it will be swept away by fascists.”  Oh dear …...

“A federal court has ordered president Barack Obama's administration to stop detaining mothers and children seeking asylum in the United States.“  America showing more compassion than Oz??????

“The U.S. Empire and ISIS: A Tale of Two Death Cults“  “Boko Haram has proven quite useful to the consolidation of U.S. military dominance in West Africa.” (Did you miss that one?) “Jihad is truly a blessing for U.S. imperial objectives”

Ukrainegate - “He understands that Kiev will inevitably violate the cease-fire and that Washington will soon have to explain why the militias in the devastated region of what is known as the “Debaltsevo cauldron” [4] are in possession of such a vast number of captured weapons originating from NATO countries.”

NUCLEAR
“Japan Experts: Fukushima’s melted reactor cores “still active and releasing neutrons” many months after 3/11 — Radioactive sulfur was “the highest ever measured in any atmospheric sample” — “Very high” concentrations detected in Tokyo”

EARTH
M5.1 @ 10km, offshore Chiapas, Mexico.

M6.1 @ 10km off E. Coast of Honshu, Japan

“If you are living in the northeastern United States, you might have started wondering what is going on with all of this cold and snow. Moreover, as bad as it is, you might have wondered somewhere in the corner of your mind, what will happen if it gets worse. …….. “

5 min video - list of the world’s Super-volcanos.

“Blizzard turns Jerusalem white with 25 centimeters of snow“
Pix of that ex BBC - 

US - “More Arctic Cold to Flow Across Eastern US Through End of February”  (Also Canada)

“In climate research and modeling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that long term prediction of future climate states is not possible.”  GET THE MESSAGE YET?

M5.1 @ 214km, E’n New Guinea region, PNG.

M5.2 @ 25km, Solomon Is.

UNCLASSIFIED
“Update on the Baltic Sea Anomaly - Ocean X Team“  Funny about the six warships …. Just coincidence, eh?

ALTERNATIVE
“Interruption-free space is sacred. Yet, in the digital era we live in, we are losing hold of the few sacred spaces that remain untouched by email, the internet, people, and other forms of distraction.” … “So what’s the solution? How do we reclaim our sacred spaces?“

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
Solar activity still low.  “40% chance of geomagnetic storms on Feb. 22-23 in response to an incoming solar wind stream.”
ALSO - the Sun-diving comet - “it has emerged apparently intact and is actually brightening as it recedes from the sun.”  That’s causing some head-scratching!!!!!

Solar flares - “Solar flares could be like tremendous lightning bursts on the Sun, discharging matter at near relativistic speeds. The circuit that connects the Sun with the Milky Way might extend for hundreds, or even thousands of light-years.”  The EU ‘take’ on them…..  Makes sense, as usual!!!!

HEALTH
This is ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!!!!  “Be My Eyes is an app that connects blind people with volunteer helpers from around the world via live video chat. Download now and start helping blind people see.“  Have a look - Q&E explanation here -

Be warned - I was!!!!!!  “Statin Drug Scandal: Cholesterol-lowering Drug Researchers Start Backtracking” 

“The food, vaccine, drug, insurance and health industry are a multi-BILLION dollar enterprise... focused more on profits than human lives. The BOUGHT documentary takes viewers deep "inside the guts" of this despicable conspiracy…  Featuring exclusive interviews with the world's most acclaimed experts in research, medicine, holistic care and natural health... Bought exposes the hidden (and deadly) story behind it all.“

“Fun and informative way to learn how our bodies create electricity, and how we might harness it.“  But also - THINK about Earthing - as a habit.  Goodnight - I’m off to earth!

GENERAL / USEFUL

=========================================
“It must be remembered that the first job of any conspiracy, whether it be in politics, crime or within a business office, is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists. The conspirators' success will be determined largely by their ability to do this.”

~~Gary Allen
