Unspun News for the 30th September 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 150930
“Are Humans Evil? If So, Why?”  An excellent review of two books by Mary Maxwell - “Political Ponerology,” (…) by Andrew Lobaczewski, and “The Cunning of History,” written by Rabbi Richard L Rubenstein …..

“Ukrainian president Petro Poroshenko has used his speech at the UN General Assembly to rail against Russian aggression, urging the world not to believe "conciliatory" statements from his counterpart Vladimir Putin.“  Hmmmm - and who put him where he is?

“At least 12 US A-10 attack planes landed in the Estonian Ă„mari Air Base on September 21-22 to participate in the joint exercises of Estonian and U.S. air forces to be held till November 13 in the Estonian airspace.”

“Russian President Vladimir Putin’s message at the UN General Assembly was stark; either sovereign states get together in a broad coalition against all forms of terror, and the principle of statehood is respected as enshrined in the UN charter - or there will be chaos.”

“A few short days ago, an amazing mission to Syria ended. Officially, it was a Veterans Today private media conference with Syrian ministries and security officials including a lengthy visit with the Grand Mufti and Ali Mamlouk.”  by VT’s Gordon Duff.  Some staggering info here …. As ever, your call.

“...more than four thousand Islamic State fighters have already entered many member countries of the European Union under the guise of being refugees.“  Given the circumstances and so on, this certainly seems feasible;  that whole scene always smacked of un-reality, and still does.  Which does NOT detract from the plight of genuine refugees…

I don’t ‘do’ ‘social media’ - but if I did, I’d be following him!

“Vladimir Putin gave an interview to American journalist Charlie Rose in the run-up to his address at the UN General Assembly’s 70th session.” … “now that the full transcript has been made available on the Kremlin website, it's fascinating to see just what was cut. We're including the full transcript below, with comments identifying which parts were not included in the final broadcast, or as special online clips. 

“In Gaza, no figures can express the sorrow“ … “The numbers speak for themselves but today I cannot contain human suffering into figures. Sorrow is not measurable, sorrow is just that and it is everything.”  And here, but for a freak of birth, goes you…...

“Airstrikes hit wedding in Yemen; as many as 135 dead“

“United States government deliberately hid “the worst nuclear disaster in U.S. history,” according to experts and an in-depth investigation by NBC4 Southern California.” … “.. which occurred north of Los Angeles in 1959 and leaked over 300 times the allowable amount of radiation into surrounding neighborhoods. That contamination is now linked to up to a 60% increase in cancer in the area,..”

“Radioactive cesium-137 from Fukushima now detected off coast of Canada“

“Court Rules Whales To Be Protected From Navy Sonar” Too little - let’s hope not too late. 

“New Zealand has unveiled plans to create a South Pacific marine sanctuary the size of France, saying it would protect one of the world's most pristine ocean environments.“  ONYA Kiwis!!!!

Meanwhile, in Australia - “Cyanide ponds from abandoned mine could spill into Murray-Darling Basin; farmers fear 'catastrophe'.

“Lightning, hail and damaging wind hit Brisbane as severe storm lashes south-east Queensland”  Some INCREDIBLY fast-developing storm cells appeared on the radar when I checked it ….  Violent, unpredictable, dangerous …...

Knee bone connected to the leg bone…… “New research has found that sharks play an important role in preventing climate change, warning that overfishing and culling sharks is resulting in more carbon being released from the seafloor.”

“Just a few days before the start of October, the first snowflakes have fallen in Spain, on Europe's most southerly ski resort.“

Ghana - “Hundreds of residents in Bilpela and Kalariga, suburbs of Tamale have been left homeless and cut off from the rest of Tamale after torrential rains swept through the Northern Region capital”

ANOTHER one?… “Tropical Storm Joaquin formed in the western Atlantic Ocean this evening. The cone of uncertainty covers the coast from North Carolina to Connecticut, and there is considerable uncertainty in the storm’s future track. We have to watch this system very closely.”

“Peru’s Ubinas volcano erupts again – Video”

FOUR tropical storms mentioned here today….. Bahamas, Mexico, Taiwan and Hawaii.  Weather change, anyone?


“She Has Returned” - An interesting conception of a solar flare…… seen through open eyes!


7 min video - “Scientists Don’t Know What to Make of Crazy New Pluto Photos”

“Three orbiting X-ray space telescopes have detected an increased rate of X-ray flares from the usually quiet giant black hole at the centre of our Milky Way galaxy after new long-term monitoring. Scientists are trying to learn whether this is normal behaviour that was unnoticed due to limited monitoring, or these flares are triggered by the recent close passage of a mysterious, dusty object.“ (The G2 gas cloud)  [Ed note - A wave of X-ray flares - any effect on Earth/humans I wonder?]

“New research suggests that salty water exists on Mars in the summer months. But that wouldn't be the first time we hear of water on the red planet. So what's new and what isn't?“

“In the months leading to the perihelion of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Rosetta scientists have been witnessing dramatic and rapid surface changes on the Imhotep region, as reported in a paper to be published in Astronomy & Astrophysics”

“Gravitational waves missing in action in latest test;  Careful timing measurements show no sign of changes in the light from pulsars.”  The Universe thumbs its nose at humans again…..

“Sunspot AR2422 has a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for X-class solar flares.”.. “The behemoth active region has produced more than 6 M-flares in the past 24 hours,”

“The Max Planck Institute added more fuel to the black hole physics fire: the ejection of a “supermassive black hole” (SMBH) from its parent galaxy. “  But once again, they miss the important bit….

“It's now coming out that statin drugs are cellular poisons that accelerate aging and cause diabetes, muscle fatigue and memory loss.”  

An excellent and concise piece re dealing with controlling people - but importantly, WHY they need to control.  Insecurity, fear of abandonment, low self-esteem …. As so often applies - ‘more to be pitied than blamed’.

Oz - SCAM - “… if you receive a phone call from someone saying you have an arrest warrant and asking you to pay a fee, hang up and do not respond. If in doubt, don’t use the contact details provided - look up the government department or organisation yourself in the phone book or online and phone or email them.” 

“Dozens of apps in Apple’s App Store were infected with malware, including insanely popular Chinese messaging app WeChat and car-hailing DiDi Taxi, in what seems to be the first major case of hackers breaching the company’s mobile software.”

“If man is not affected in some way by the Moon, he is the only thing on Earth that isn’t.”

~~Robert Millikan, (1868-1953), US physicist & 1923 Nobel Prize winner


There is much disinformation and misinformation ‘out there’.  I do not have the time to check the credentials of every writer that I place in Unspun, so please be aware that your discrimination, used in parallel with your open-minded intellect, is your best friend - ALL the time!
