Unspun News for the 30th June 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150630


WORLD
“Greece closes banks temporarily as crisis deepens;  Banks to remain closed until July 6 and capital control imposed amid fears Greece may default on its debt and exit euro.“

PEPE ESCOBAR - “Here, in a nutshell, is everything one needs to know about the EU “dream”.” … “What Greece – the cradle of Western civilization — has already shown the world should make their citizens proud; nothing like a shot of democracy to make the Gods of Neoliberalism go berserk.”

“Tragic History of XX Century and Crisis Faced by Greece”  The story behind the story….


This, written by the Greek Finance Minister - VERY informative.  “The very idea that a government would consult its people on a problematic proposal put to it by the institutions was treated with incomprehension and often with disdain bordering on contempt. I was even asked: “How do you expect common people to understand such complex issues?”.  AND - “I received the following extraordinary answer: “The Eurogroup is an informal group. Thus it is not bound by Treaties or written regulations. While unanimity is conventionally adhered to, the Eurogroup President is not bound to explicit rules.” I let the reader comment on this remarkable statement.”  Indeed…..

THIERRY MEYSSAN - “Considering that journalists work in the service of peace, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution designed for their protection in combat zones. However, only two weeks later, the US Department of Defence published instructions for the arrest of media professionals who engage in espionage – an initiative which could harm journalists from the member states of NATO….”

UNDER-REPORTED
US - “The NFL pat downs. The NFL and every other sports franchise have signed agreements with DHS to allow their facilities to be used as detention facilities.” Now that shows forward thinking, eh?  Forward to … what……?  (I don’t follow BiN - not my sort of site - but this seems pretty solid….)

US - "Under the Court's new rule, it would not matter whether the State intended to use midazolam, or instead to have petitioners drawn and quartered, slowly tortured to death, or actually burned at the stake," write dissenting justice”  Think about that ….  And ask why?  What is the intent/purpose here?

“Following the explosion at a chemical factory, the Ukrainian government has urged the OSCE to monitor the levels of radiation over Donetsk.“  Something not being said here???

“30,000 Pound Bomb: U.S. Prepares To Strike Iran’s Nuke Facilities With Massive Ordnance Penetrator”  Is that REALLY a very good idea????

NUCLEAR
“Every single person” we hosted from Japan has had health problems… Blood stains found in almost all of their beds — Japanese Mom: Most mothers I’ve met from Tokyo and Fukushima are suffering thyroid problems, eye problems, nose bleeds… It’s been very surprising”  (From a non-profit hosting group in Hawaii)

“The Fukushima multiple nuclear disasters continue spewing out hot stuff like there’s no tomorrow. By all appearances, it is getting worse, out-of-control nuclear meltdowns.”   Seen that on the evening news?  No?  How odd…..

EARTH
“Adani may junk $16bn Oz project“  One of those “YESSS!!!!!!” moments!

M 5.5 @ 10km, near coast of S’n Peru.

US - “Flooding ruins thousands of acres of crops along Mississippi River in IL and MO”

US - “Dangerous weekend thunderstorms sweep across the country“

“Indonesia raises alert as Mt Raung volcano erupts“ AND - “Apart from Mount Raung, other volcanoes for which Indonesian authorities have raised the second highest alert level are Mount Karangetang, as well as Mount Soputan and Mount Lokon in Sulawesi.“  Paying attention?

“A new study led by Florida Institute of Technology Professor Ningyu Liu has improved our understanding of a curious luminous phenomenon that happens 25 to 50 miles above thunderstorms.   These spectacular phenomena, called sprites, are fireworks-like electrical discharges, sometimes preceded by halos of light, in earth’s upper atmosphere.”

“Record River Levels in Bangladesh – Floods Leave Over 20 People Dead”

“Costa Rica has experienced further heavy rainfall over the last few days which has left 19 communities isolated and forced over 700 people from their homes.“

UNCLASSIFIED
‘Unofficial’ news update - An Unspunner (in Oz) has told me that a regular (private)  inter-bank money transfer from Germany to Oz was ‘bounced’ from his account in Oz on a flimsy excuse yesterday.  Paying attention yet?

ALTERNATIVE
“What Are The Metaphysical Effects Of A Magnetic Pole Reversal?” …… “The Earth’s heartbeat is known as the Schumann Resonance, which has been recorded at approximately 7.83 cycles per second for presumably thousands of years. In recent years, the Schumann Resonance has been rising and was recently recorded as high as 8.90.“

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Active sunspot AR2371 has just disappeared over the sun's western limb. This should bring a spell of renewed quiet to the sun. NOAA forecasters are downgrading the chance of M-class flares during the next 24 hours from 60% to only 5%.”

“Hidden water on Mars?“  Another explanation of recent astronomical discoveries re Mars….

HEALTH
“Five ingredients that poison your brain“  Gluten, Artificial sweeteners, MSG, Refined sugar, and Fluoride - will all or singly trash your IQ…..

“New Study: DDT Exposure Linked To 4-Fold Breast Cancer Increase“

“After testing 16 women from different regions all over Germany, the Green Party has found that traces of the chemical glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Round Up, are appearing in breast milk at ‘intolerable levels’ that could harm a developing baby and the mother.“  The trouble with your paranoia is that you aren’t paranoid enough.  Yet.

GENERAL / USEFUL
“Now Facebook can follow you on other sites: Social media network has started harvesting data on links you click and searches you make”

“An Incredible Off Grid Tiny Home“  THIS should be the way we are headed…..
