Unspun News for the 25th August 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150825


WORLD
“South Korea says it will not stop blasting high-decibel propaganda messages into North Korea until Pyongyang offers a "clear apology" over a series of alleged provocations.”  Nyah nyah - my provocation’s bigger than your provocation…..  Can you believe this???

“Misinformation Hides Real Dimension of Greek “Bailout” …. Nutshell:  Greece has been trashed.  “The bailout is not really about a growth plan for Greece, but a plan to make sure the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) get paid, and the euro area does not break up.”

“We decry Al-Assad when he bombs rebels in Syria, but praise allied forces bombing rebels (sorry, I mean terrorists) in Syria. And when the US funds the war in Syria – they are of course funding rebels, not terrorists. But the mainstream media view is so confusing and convoluted that one cannot trust any reportage.”  Ain’t THAT the truth….


“US Tests Space Weapon: Back to Star Wars”  So much for the non-militarisation of space …..

“By itself, the 530 point plunge on Friday was the ninth worst stock market crash in all of U.S. history. “  And we ain’t seen nuttin’ yet….

“Ground troops from the United Arab Emirates have landed in the central Yemeni province of Ma’rib to support forces loyal to Yemen’s government in their fight against the Iran-backed Houthi insurgents, sources say.”  And so it grows …..

UNDER-REPORTED
“Rather than defeating IS, its [U.S.] objective is the preservation and expansion of its influence in the region. For this, Turkey is a much more valuable partner than either the YPG and YPJ or the PKK. Action speaks louder than words, and in choosing its allies the US has shown clearly where its priorities really lie: power over democracy, influence over honesty and war over peace.“

“Division 30, the 54 Fighter Force Trained and Funded by the United States “  Fiasco?  Misinfo? Disinfo?  In September 2014, congress approved a budget of $500 million to train & equip a force of 5000 “moderate” Syrian rebels . To the amusement of everyone it took 10 months to train a mere 54 rebels.

Re the “Increasing Propaganda Against Russia” - interesting analysis….

“Israel retaliatory airstrikes for rocket attack leave 6 dead in Syria; Netanyahu blames Iran“

JON RAPPOPORT - “The collapse of Europe”

NUCLEAR
“To date 2,000 people have died as a direct result of the Fukushima nuclear disaster since the accident occurred five years ago.   Many more are expected to die, as the disastrous consequences of the explosions continue to slowly kill Japanese people in a number of different ways - and the Japanese government refuse to recognise or discuss the increasing death count.“

“Record-breaking typhoon to make direct hit on Japan’s only restarted nuclear plant — 159 mph gust last night, strongest ever measured at location — Waves near 40 ft. high expected around island — Gov’t alerts for landslides and floods — Cracks and leaks already found at nuclear plant”

EARTH
“World's fastest-melting glacier loses massive chunk in 2 days”  Random, chaotic - typical weather change stuff leading eventually to massive local and global climate changes.  Remember - Weather creates climates - Climates CANNOT create weather!

M5.7 @ 40km, offshore Coquimbo, Chile

“Severe thunderstorms moving across parts of New South Wales have brought large hailstones, damaging winds and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding, the Bureau of Meteorology says.”

M6.0 @ 228km, Kermadec is region.

YESS!!!!!!!!!  “Cutting Tropical Deforestation is Key to Curbing Climate Change, And It's Cheap“  Whatever the causes may be, this has been obvious from square one…..

“A new report urges "extreme caution" in using seismic airguns to explore for fossil fuels underwater, saying it is "indisputable" that the practice has adverse impacts on Arctic marine life, especially whales.“  Humans - the rogue species of Planet Earth….

“Seven people were killed, 17 were injured and three were lost in floods and mudslides in Turkey's northeastern province of Artvi ….”

“The world’s oldest and deepest lake could face severe damage from wildfires which are burning out of control along its shores. Lake Baikal, home to 20 percent of the world’s unfrozen fresh water, is facing a potential ecological catastrophe with 36 fires burning in the region.“

S.A. - Cape Town - “Weird weather took hold this past weekend as both Saturday and Sunday evening saw the skies over the Mother City light up due to thunder and lightning storms.”

“Heavy rainfall, storm surges and strong winds expected as Typhoon "Goni" approaches Japan“

“France – 2 Dead in Montpellier Floods After 170 mm of Rain in 24 Hours“

“India – 13 Dead, 600,000 Affected as More Floods Hit Assam”

UNCLASSIFIED
“Sixty per cent of Australian students are training for jobs that will not exist in the future or will be transformed by automation, according to a new report by the Foundation for Young Australians.“  No kidding??

ALTERNATIVE
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, "Arthur C. Clarke once wrote a long time ago.   In this Xenology article we take a look at who could be out there and what kind of advanced technology they could posses.”  Interesting speculations!

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Sunspot AR2403 has a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for strong solar flares. Moreover, the behemoth sunspot is directly facing Earth. NOAA forecasters estimate a 55% chance of M-class solar flares and a 10% chance of X-flares on Aug. 24th.”

HEALTH
“Coconut Oil Benefits: The Incredible Power of Coconut Oil” … “In the midst of an obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer explosion, scientists discover that it is not healthy fats found in coconut oil and other natural products that are bad for you.”

GENERAL/USEFUL
The (Oz) ABC obtained and released one of their reporters meta-data records, and then offered it to the public to analyse.  "The public's analysis has been at times scarily accurate.  "They've trawled through everything very, very thoroughly. A year of my life has been given a very good going over. They picked up on the major trips, the work times, my habits and more."  And that is just the PUBLIC analysis - imagine a serious tracking one….
NO hiding Place, indeed…….
