Unspun News for the 2nd June 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150602


WORLD
Malcom Fraser - last January - with his crystal ball on emergency full ahead. “Former PM Malcolm Fraser on Australia's Dangerous dependence to US“  Specifically, the situation in the South China Sea……   Either he had foreknowledge, or his analytic ability was previously unrealised.  6 min video, from Gumshoe.

“Over 6,400 killed, almost 16,000 wounded since conflict began in eastern Ukraine - UN”

“Most commentary and analysis coming out of Brazil appears to depict the Latin American giant in the middle of a great storm. (……) In fact, Brazil is going through a great new churning which can only jolt the country into moving forward.”


“Who are the psychopaths?“  … “At 5% of the population, there are AT LEAST 16 Million psychopaths in the USA alone -- most are, at first, effectively clinically undetectable from the main population. (…) Most have not only gotten away with their pernicious and predatory tactics on humanity and the planet, but have actually prospered in power, money and position.“  This guy REALLY knows his stuff.  WELL worth cogitating on the inevitability of the planet’s future with this in mind….

UNDER-REPORTED
JAMES PETRAS - “A Critique of the U.S. “Grand Strategy toward China;  Seven Mistaken Assumptions, Presumptions and Prescriptions”  Interesting - but he misses a critical point.  Whose tune is America dancing to?

PCR - “The Transatlantic and Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnerships have nothing to do with free trade.  «Free trade» is used as a disguise to hide the power these agreements give to corporations to use law suits to overturn sovereign laws of nations that regulate pollution, food safety, GMOs, and minimum wages.”  In case you hadn’t noticed!!!

“Concerns over China-US relations’ future heightened last week after a US spy plane flew over some of China’s islands and reefs in the South China Sea. While the international community is anxious to know China’s response to the apparent US provocation, the fact is, Washington’s move has made Beijing’s case for reclamation and construction work in the South China Sea much stronger.“

NUCLEAR
“‘Nuclear fuel material’ leak at Fukushima — Japan TV: Record levels of radioactivity detected in seawater — Spiked “more than 200 times” at sampling location — Highest concentrations ever measured in 11 different areas”

“Fukushima Disaster: What is the Real Truth?”

“Censored US gov’t emails reveal proposed plan to test West Coast residents for Fukushima fallout — “Many cases of cancer may end up being attributed to exposures” — Doses could exceed EPA’s emergency levels — UC Berkeley Nuclear Dept.: “Prompt action should be taken”

EARTH
M5.8 @ 10km, off Oregon coast.

INDIA - “Scattered rain on Sunday brought much-needed but only temporary relief to parts of India hit by a long heatwave as the death toll from the blistering temperatures crossed 2,200, officials said.” http://phys.org/news/2015-05-relief-india-heatwave-death-toll.html

US - “The severe flooding in Texas and Oklahoma is caused by an El NiƱo pattern that has split the jet stream in two.”

“Blizzards in Scotland“ - NB 2nd para - “.. the presenter just skims past them without a mention.”

Oz - “Large parts of Australia’s southeast are shivering through sub-zero temperatures and heavy snow falls.   Snow has fallen on unusually low altitudes in parts of Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales.“

“Expanding sea ice threatening the viability of Australia’s Mawson Antarctic research station, warns Rob Wooding, general manager of the Australian Antarctic Division’s Operations Branch.“  (No-one’s told him about global warming yet?)

13 min video - “… ground level flask measurements of methane have been spiking upwards over the last few years. I analyze the implications to the breakdown of climate stability, causing jet stream fracturing and weather regime change.”

M5.9 @ 10km off Oregon coast - Third M5+ in 14 hours, and getting larger.

“An aggressive foreign fish that can move across dry land and choke birds and other fish is threatening to make its way onto Australian soil from Papua New Guinea.”

UNCLASSIFIED
“If you value privacy, you may want to think twice before using Facebook Messenger. A new extension for Chrome has revealed just how much location data is shared through the app – and it's enough to track someone down with almost perfect accuracy.”

ALTERNATIVE
Interesting research re neural connections - “Your brain is designed to constantly make and break neural connections as you think new thoughts. Choose your thoughts; change your biology; change your life”  HOWEVER - be warned - “This video has several positive sentiments... but as a neuroscientist, the science is largely erroneous and grossly oversimplified.”

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
An excellently put together article that will REALLY  ‘put you in your place’ - from Earth through to the Observable Universe in 8 steps, by Laron.

“The MPEC 2015-K126 issued on May 28, 2015 announced the discovery of a new Amor-type asteroid officially designated 2015 KQ154.”

WOW!!!!!!    
“Astronomers in Australia have detected the existence of tubular plasma structures in the inner layers of the magnetosphere surrounding Earth – and made a 3D movie of them.”  If this doesn’t blow you away, then you don’t know what you’re looking at!  (And I’m not sure either!!!)  3 min video……  “A whole new way of looking at the sky”

“The sun's X-ray output has not completely flatlined, but the pulse is weak. Solar flare activity is very low. Moreover, it is likely to remain so. NOAA forecasters say the odds of an X-class flare today is no more than 1%.”

“The Milky Way is more complex than previously thought.”  “Any substance containing charged particles is a plasma: electrons, positive ions, electrically charged dust, neon lights, lightning, planetary magnetospheres, the so-called “solar wind,” stars, and even galaxies are plasma. However, Electric Universe advocates do not consider plasma to be a simple substance; rather, it is an emergent phenomenon, it can not be analyzed in terms of its component parts, it arises in response to complicated interactions.”  Time for a major re-think!!!!!

HEALTH
“How to Tell If a Medical Study Is Total Bull“

GENERAL / USEFUL
“7 best apps for travellers;  Thankfully, we live in the world of technology, which means there is an app for anything, but even though some of the zillion apps are not really useful, the ones related to travelling make the difference between a successful holiday and a real nightmare.“

=========================================
“If a UFO were to land in your backyard, there are 2 things the extraterrestrial would not have: Money and a Bible.”
