Unspun News for the 15th July 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150715


WORLD
“We Can All Get by Quite Well Without Banks - Ireland Managed to Survive Without Them;  A 1970 strike in Ireland provoked an admirable outbreak of ingenuity - Greece should take note”

“Fact check: Does Australia spend more on offshore processing than the UN spends on refugee programs in South East Asia?” RESULT - (…) Using the exchange rate at the time of Mr Webb's claim, Australia is currently spending more than five times the amount on offshore processing than the UNHCR spends in South East Asia.”  How insane is that?


PEPE ESCOBAR “Iran — supported by Russia and China — has finally, successfully, called the long, winding 12-year-long Atlanticist bluff on its “nuclear weapons.”
“In a conference for foreign press in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls the Iran nuclear deal a “stunning historic mistake” and says that Israel will not adhere to the agreement and will not hesitate to defend itself if necessary.“
Tony Cartalucci - from 2013 - “Warning: Nuclear Deal With Iran Prelude to War, Not "Breakthrough"

Eric Margolis - “Destroying Syria To Make It Safe For American Values”

THIERRY MEYSSAN - “The 5+1 negotiations are at a standstill, not because of Washington and Teheran, but because Moscow has no intention of allowing the new regional order in the Middle East to compromise its interests. Thierry Meyssan lifts the veil on the prolongation of the Lausanne discussions.“  Some interesting points here ….

UNDER-REPORTED
“Small scale solar projects are the latest renewable energy source in the Federal Government's sights.  The Government yesterday confirmed it had directed the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to steer clear of investing in wind farms (…).  It's now been revealed that direction also excludes small-scale solar plants.“  Ever had that feeling you’re under attack by alien forces?  We are.  Politicians.
And this sort of goes with that ….
“… Canada is close to finalizing its new policy on (GM) foods that would allow very low levels of contaminated crops into the country—without a risk assessment by Health Canada.”

Greece -  “..what Germany and the Troika are doing to Greece is consistent with the entire "Washington Consensus" that turned institutions like the IMF into instruments of the neoliberal project at the end of the 60's.  It's what these forces have been doing across the Global South since then.  Masked as a 'debt-crisis,' what we are seeing in Greece is globalized capitalism functioning specifically as it always has.”

“Scientist Who Analyzed Dust From 9/11 Attacks Dies Suddenly”

NUCLEAR
“Scientists discover bacteria that help with nuclear waste clean-ups“

EARTH
“Krill play a crucial role in the Antarctic food chain, as they are consumed by whales, penguins and various other seabirds. (…) A single humpback whale, for example, will consume around a tonne, almost exclusively krill, every day.   But now corporate interests have the krill in their sights. The species is the new fad, identified as containing a cheap source of protein, and it has even gained the moniker 'pink gold'.”  And there goes the entire Antarctic ecosystem….

NZ - “It's a record-breaking winter so far”…” More than 30 weather stations around New Zealand have also had daily maximum temperature recordings that are either the lowest ever recorded, or at least in the top four coldest for July.”

“Typhoon "Nangka" to make landfall near Iwakuni on Shikoku island late July 16, Japan“

“27 Dead in Northern India and Pakistan after Week of Torrential Rain and Floods”

“Australia Red Cross are reporting that initial assessments suggest that 10,000 people have been affected by flooding and heavy rain in the Solomon Islands, which has caused damage to houses and crops.“

“350 Evacuated after Heavy Rain Causes Landslide in Guatemala”

“US President Declares Disaster for Red River Floods, Louisiana“

“Virgin Australia has delayed flights to Bali after another major volcanic eruption at Mt Raung.“  She just keeps on popping…..

UNCLASSIFIED
“The Statue of Liberty has become the most cherished symbol of the United States of America.  What we were not taught in school were the truly significant facts regarding the true nature of the Statue.” …  “Laboulaye, a French Freemason proposed the idea of a giant statue replicating a goddess that the Masonic movement idolized.”  Hidden in plain sight?  Again?

US - Detroit - “The Satanic Temple plans to unveil a large statue dedicated to the devil in the city of Detroit later this month, despite intensified protests by church leaders and residents”  Hidden in plain sight?  Again?

Creepy!!!!  “There are many reasons why Denver airport in Colorado is considered the weirdest airport in the world and a sinister place.  Frankly, it doesn't take long before visitors notice there is something odd about this place.  The signs are all around you and you don't have to be a conspiracy enthusiast to quickly observe that you are not visiting an ordinary airport.”  Hidden in plain sight?  Again?

ALTERNATIVE
This is a short essay on ‘Simplifying Assumptions’ …. A bit like a tiny pebble that moves, and releases a mega-ton avalanche.  Definitely ponder-worthy!

Crop circle - Czech Rep.

Crop circle, Alton Barnes, UK - a bit late for Oestre?

PREDICTION / FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
Pluto - pix and a ‘love note’!  (And just maybe, it is!!!)

“After Odd Dawn Shutdown, NASA Has New Take on Ceres Lights“  Something appears to be ‘going on’…..

“None of these sunspots has the type of unstable magnetic field that poses a threat for strong solar flares. Solar activity is low”

HEALTH
“You likely already know that the food ingredient monosodium glutamate (MSG) isn’t good for you. You may even know some of the popular reasons why. But did you know that MSG is primarily used by the food industry to keep us addicted to ‘big taste, little nutrition’ food? It’s an industry secret.”

“Children's brains changed by severe family violence, royal commission hears”  That needed a Royal Commission????

GENERAL / USEFUL
An endless chase …. “Scientists Discover a New Particle: the Pentaquark;  As the name would suggest, it's five quarks bound up together.”

“Boeing patents laser-powered fusion-fission jet engine for airplanes, spacecraft
Lasers fuse hydrogen, which causes the uranium to fission, which generates electricity.”  Is this really a good idea???
