Unspun News for the 11th April 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150411


WORLD
PEPE ESCOBAR - “‘Operation Decisive Storm’ – the Pentagon-style House of Saud glorifying of its ghastly ‘Bomb Yemen’ show - could be summed up in a single paragraph:- The wealthiest Arab nation – the House of Saud petro-hacienda – supported by other GCC petro-rackets and also the wealthy “West”, has launched an – illegal – bombing/war/kinetic operation against the poorest Arab nation in the name of “democracy.”

“US president Barack Obama says Washington is concerned China uses its "sheer size and muscle" to push around smaller countries in the South China Sea.“  Pots and kettles, anyone????

“Canada is the leading state sponsor of neo-Nazi armed terrorist units fighting in eastern Ukraine. Canadian support for the most right-wing elements, including neo-Nazis, in Ukraine would never have been possible had it not been for the concrete support provided by the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS) and its Central Intelligence Agency masters ... “


“A cursory look at the geo-political developments taking place in the Middle East would draw our attention to one very critical aspect of Middle Eastern politics: Israel's transforming strategic environment and its geo-political posture therein.”

9 min video - “The TPP Paves The Way For World Government”  But you knew that anyway …. Didn’t you?

UNDER-REPORTED
Finian Cunningham - “Ukraine and Yemen, to some, may seem disconnected theatres. Not at all. The American-backed lawlessness and barbarity running amok in both countries are an integral function of how US power really operates in the world; not as a recent aberrant phenomenon, but rather going back to the fundamentals of how the American ruling class functions under capitalism.”  Join the dots …..

“The Islamic Republic of Iran, born in 1979, has not attacked another country. (....) In contrast, Israel has attacked its Arab neighbors several times its founding, including two devastating invasions and a long occupation of Lebanon, not to mention repeated onslaughts in the Gaza Strip and the military occupation of the West Bank.” … “Yet Iran is universally cast as the villain (with scant evidence) and Israel the vulnerable victim.“  Alice in Wonderland indeed.  So who’s pulling whose strings?

“West Papua - Return to Melanesia”  Interesting timing ……  “The president of the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma, Reverend Tevita Banivanua said, "for too long, we have failed to speak out against Indonesia's brutal oppression of the West Papua people,"  Puts Abbott between a rock and a hard place ….

NUCLEAR
Fukushima - “‘It is the first time a robot has entered any of the three stricken reactors at the meltdown-hit plant, and the snake-like contraption might give its operators a better idea of what happened during the disaster,' Japan Times reports”

EARTH
“Sao Paulo, out of water and power“  “It started with an irony, that may well be the perfect metaphor: the largest city in a country that holds 20 percent of Earth’s fresh water supply ends up without any.”  Getting serious …...

“'Warm blob' in Pacific Ocean linked to weird weather across the US”  “The one common element in recent weather has been oddness”  Chaotic, random……...

“University of Edinburgh researchers warn that the carbon emissions that drove a mass extinction event some 252 million years ago were released at a rate similar to today”  I wonder what killed the forests back then?  Drought?

Scotland - “Thirty firefighters are battling a wildfire which spread across two square miles of moorland overnight.   The blaze began in gorseland near the water treatment works at Dornoch in the Highlands at midday on Thursday.“

Ireland - “Firefighters in Co Kerry worked through the night to bring a wildfire in Killarney National Park under control.“

“A blazing sinkhole in northwest China terrified locals, attracting tourists as well as researchers and prompting questions about its origin. The temperature on top of the burning crater was estimated to be 792 degrees Celsius (1,457 degrees Fahrenheit).“  Wouldn’t want that popping up in your lounge room wouldja?

“Unprecedented April snow in Lasithi, Crete, Greece”

“Largest glacier in Chile is advancing”

“200 Years After Tambora, Some Unusual Effects Linger;  Frankenstein, famine poetry, polar exploration—the "year without a summer" was just the beginning”

“Ex-cyclone Ikola dumps big rain across southern WA — and more to come”  Will it reach Tassy?  My guess is ‘probably’!

UNCLASSIFIED
“Facebook says it’s begun fixing a bug that tracks web users even when they’re not registered on the social network.” “The bug led to people who hadn’t signed up for Facebook being tracked – through code stored in their browsers – while visiting web pages that integrated certain Facebook technology. The report on the problem was first published in February and came to light a month later“  GET THE MESSAGE????

ALTERNATIVE

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Sunspot AR2320 has an unstable 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for M-class solar flares”
ALSO - report - “Last month, on March 17th, a CME hit Earth's magnetic field, sparking the strongest geomagnetic storm of the current solar cycle. ….”

“Saturn’s fourth largest moon indicates that plasma events of some kind once clawed into its surface.”  The evidence just keeps on coming…...

HEALTH
If you don’t get Chicken Pox, you’re a sitting duck for Shingles, later in life.  Now, about those vaccinations…..

“Turmeric’s ‘Smart Kill’ Properties Put Chemo & Radiation To Shame   The ancient Indian spice turmeric strikes again! A new study finds turmeric extract selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation can not.“

“Water fluoridation above a certain level is linked to 30 percent higher than expected rates of underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) in England, suggests research.”

“Given the restrictions and the level of control placed upon the disclosure of information when it comes to “credible” medical studies, it seems surprising that glyphosate, the most commonly used herbicide on the planet, has been officially deemed a dangerous health hazard to human beings by the mainstream health community.“

GENERAL / USEFUL
“Facebook says it’s begun fixing a bug that tracks web users even when they’re not registered on the social network.” “The bug led to people who hadn’t signed up for Facebook being tracked – through code stored in their browsers – while visiting web pages that integrated certain Facebook technology.
