Unspun News for the 4th May 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150504
WESAK - “On Vesākha Day, Buddhists all over the world commemorate events of significance to Buddhists of all traditions: The birth, enlightenment and the passing away of Gautama Buddha



WORLD
“The United Nations has urged Nepal's government to relax customs controls which it says are holding up the distribution of vital relief supplies for survivors of last week's earthquake.“  The only thing stupider than red tape is the critters that enforce it.

“The Saudi-led bombing campaign against rebels in Yemen is using U.S.-supplied cluster munitions, endangering civilians and violating an international arms treaty, Human Rights Watch warned on Sunday.“  Down and down we go ….


JAMES PETRAS - “The Euro-American and Japanese ruling classes, as well as their collaborators in the Afro-Asian and Latin American countries, have accumulated vast profit. This has occurred through a complex stratified system re-concentrating the world’s wealth “ … “The current world war between the classes has become a war between exterminators and those who would fight to survive!”  Top line & bottom line.  You’d better read the bits in between …..

“The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and Russia's Ministry of Defense have set up a direct military-to-military communication link to deal with any issues they might face amid mounting tensions, according to Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.”

UNDER-REPORTED
“CIA Whistleblower John Kiriakou Calls on Journalists to Tell ‘Full Story’ of US Torture“  Nice idea, but …..

“Scandals, Scandals, & More Scandals”  from Russian/Chinese naval exercise  in the Meddy, via Merkel’s phone, to 911 - nothing but scandals.

“... the Saudis have used their power and influence to cover-up their involvement in the greatest terrorist attack in US history and continue to do so today.”  Does it still matter?  Or have events overtaken it?

“If the U.S. economy really is improving, then why are big U.S. retailers permanently shutting down thousands of stores?  The “retail apocalypse” that I have written about so frequently appears to be accelerating.”  This is a big and serious flag …..

Slave labour in Oz?  YES.  “The supermarkets involved include Woolworths, Coles, Aldi, IGA and Costco.  Fast food outlets KFC and Red Rooster are also implicated. Four Corners understands a third major fast food chain is also involved.” … “A scam is being run by unscrupulous labour hire contractors - dodgy middle men who sell groups of cut-price migrant workers to farms and factories producing fresh food across the country.”

NUCLEAR
“Radioactive water leaked from Fukushima storage tank – TEPCO“  No kidding?

“Strong Mag 5 Quake Strikes Fukushima Nuclear Plant- 5/3/15” “Smoke (?) from Unit 4.”  Either this is an exaggeration, or it’s played down.  You choose.

 Fukushima vs GMOs - as if you had a choice?  “The difference comes down to the invisible threat that Fukushima exhibits verses the much more tangible attack presented by GMOs.“  Way out of date, but still valid ….

EARTH
“Scientists have successfully piloted drones over Antarctic ice floe from aboard a ship in a world-first operation they say has the potential to change the face of Antarctic science.“

M2.7 @ 18km, Temiscaming, Quebec, Canada………  Huh?????

“A controversial plan for a Chinese-run open cut coal mine near prime agricultural land in New South Wales is facing another hurdle, with lawyers claiming the State Government failed to consider the true impact of the proposed mine on the local koala population.”  Is nothing sacred?

“A SEVERE weather warning for snow which could make higher roads hazardous was issued today by the Met Office.”  Snow.  May.  Scotland.  Right?

“Russia – Heavy snowfall in Irkutsk region“

Oz - Qld - Plagues of locusts.  “More than 150 swarms have been reported to Biosecurity Queensland so far this year, ….. There were only 15 swarms reported throughout the state from 2011 and 2013.“

UNCLASSIFIED
“Here's something interesting and creepy beyond belief - the Apple watch needs to see your blood and know it is being worn before it can receive calls and notifications, OR before it can be used to do any online transaction”  And extrapolated, that has other nasty implications…..

ALTERNATIVE
EXCELLENT ARTICLE - “Are You In Balance?” … “If you know you’re badly out of balance, take action before your body/mind finds a way of doing it for you. But stop worrying about finding perfect balance.”

Zen Gardener - “The Infinite Sea of Endless Possibility“  Some extremely good ponders in here …...

PREDICTION / FORECASTS
“The proofs of a predictive system are steady signals in trends over long cycles.  Activities fluctuate with variables in short periods, playing against long-term background conditions.  (…)  and numerous variables affect short-term periods.“  Krsanna’s ‘Timestar’ predictions from 1993 onwards - and you’ll have a job finding more accurate and proven forecasts.

ASTRONOMIC
“The two brightest spots on dwarf planet Ceres, which have fascinated scientists for months, are back in view in the newest images from NASA's Dawn spacecraft.”
An animation and still image are available here:

“Sunspot AR2335 is growing and beginning to crackle with C-class solar flares.” Also - “Although the CME is not moving directly along the sun-Earth line, it might still be geoeffective. A glancing blow is possible on May 5th or 6th.”

“Io’s caldera continue to puzzle scientists.“ .. “Pictures of the Day discuss several confirmed predictions about electrical activity on Io, notably, the intense electric arcing between the moon and its parent body, Jupiter.”

HEALTH
“How Music ‘Radically’ Improves The Brain, Dementia, And Alzheimer’s;  Music can heal the body, mind, and soul“

GENERAL / USEFUL
Ghost story - with photo.  Would you go into that place after dark? (Or even before?)

=========================================
“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

~~Karl Rove
