Unspun News for the 31st December 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 151231


WORLD
“What Are The Chances For Peace In 2016?“  GOOD article - especially if read with perspective.

“How could Russia in just 20 years, without wars or other perturbations, rise from a semi-colony to an acknowledged world leader, equal among the top ones?”

“If the highest ranking U.S. and NATO military commander in Afghanistan gets his way, America's longest official war could become even more protracted.”
“Isis men are now fighting in their thousands in the country we arrived to “liberate” 14 years ago, quite apart from tens of thousands of Taliban “pushing” in to their “heartland” around Sangin“


“Swiss Army Chief Warns Of Social Unrest, Calls Upon Citizens To Arm Themselves“

“The Russian Air Forces have eliminated several Islamic State commanders striking a building in Raqqa, where they were holding a meeting. The intelligence data for the operation was provided by opposition forces, Russia' Defense Ministry said.“

UNDER-REPORTED
“Russia has labelled as "absurd" accusations by the United States that Russian air strikes in Syria are killing hundreds of civilians.”  Some would be inevitable - but I think this is propaganda pots and kettles.

“Revealed: Under Obama, NSA Continued to Spy on Foreign Allies“

FINIAN CUNNINGHAM - “2015 was the year Russia exposed the barbaric nature of Western powers, from their criminal conspiracy for regime change in Syria, to aggression against Yemen, Iran, Russia, China and any country that does not toe the line.”

Oz - “The Police’s Role in Covering Up Pedophilia – Part 7 of Gumshoe’s Series on the Royal Commission“  The definition of ‘limitless’ now seems to be ‘corruption’…..

UK - Scotland - “Crippling government austerity measures are forcing schoolchildren in Scotland to go hungry, steal food from their peers and develop mental health issues, teachers have claimed.”  How the mighty are fallen …..

“Saudi warplanes hit the positions of the forces allied with the Saudi-led coalition in Southern Yemen, and killed a large number of militants loyal to fugitive former President Mansour Hadi, in what has come to be known as "routine" shooting and bombing of friendly troops by Saudi forces.”   Unsmart ….

NUCLEAR
“Takahama unit 3 is the most recent nuclear reactor to attempt a restart in Japan. It is also one of the more controversial. The reactor restart had been blocked by the courts for being unsafe until another judge overturned that decision. On December 25th 157 fuel assemblies including 24 MOX  assemblies were loaded into the reactor. The power company plans to restart the reactor by the end of January.   The impact of MOX on the meltdown and explosion of unit 3 at Fukushima Daiichi is still not understood yet Japanese authorities allowed this unit to be loaded with this controversial plutonium fuel.”

EARTH
“Air temperatures at the Earth’s most northernly region, in the middle of winter, will rise above freezing for only the second time on record.”  Random, chaotic ….. WEATHER.

“Western Australia has had one of its hottest years on record, with the Pilbara town of Roebourne recording the highest temperature of any place in the country.”

NW China - “A heavy snowfall that lasted over 40 hours”

US - Washington state - Snoqualmie Pass - “More than ¼ of an entire season’s snowfall in one week.  “Unusually large amounts of snowfall last week on I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass forced an indefinite closure of the pass Christmas Eve due to heavy snow, trees leaning over the road and high avalanche danger,” 

“We’ve long noted at WUWT that the word “robust” has seen a significant rise in usage in climate science papers, becoming a favorite word to use when statistical Spackle has been applied to climate data. Now there’s evidence from a new study suggesting that observation is spot-on.“  Think ‘to influence YOU!’

UK - “December 2015 is already a record breaking month for rainfall in parts of the UK. The spell of wet weather spread across portions of north Wales and northwest England on December 26, 2015 brought flooding to the area already saturated with water.“

UK - BBC - assorted UK weather news 

“Tropical low pressure area located east of American Samoa, South Pacific Ocean and designated as System 92P consolidated overnight and was named Tropical Cyclone "Ula" at 09:00 UTC on December 30, 2015.“

UNCLASSIFIED
“December 29 marks the 125th anniversary of the Wounded Knee massacre, when soldiers from the U.S. 7th Cavalry gunned down almost 300 cold, hungry, unarmed Lakota Sioux men, women and children who had come together for a Ghost Dance.” And 125 years later, nothing’s changed… 

ALTERNATIVE

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
This is a bit technical, but VERY interesting - the header speaks for itself: “Explosive volcanic eruptions triggered by cosmic rays: Volcano as a bubble chamber”  Yes, Virginia - we ARE part of the Universe ….. Deal with it.

“Image: Boulders on a Martian landslide“  I wonder how much we are NOT being told about Mars?

“Sunspot AR2473 is decaying and no longer has the type of unstable magnetic field that harbors energy for very strong flares.”
ALSO - “A CME hurled toward Earth on Dec. 28th by an explosion in the magnetic canopy of sunspot AR2473 is still en route.”

“Different classes of celestial bodies orbit the Sun.“  Centaurs, planetoids and more….

HEALTH
“Scientific Links Between Processed Foods and Depression“  “Research shows that the food you eat can have a profound effect on your mental health. So, regardless of your mental health problems, the importance of addressing your diet simply cannot be overstated.  In a very real sense, you have two brains — one in your head, and one in your gut.“

“When Vaccine Ingredients Cross the Blood Brain Barrier – A Formula for Disaster“  “It’s a logical question to ask, therefore, is the polysorbate-80 used in vaccines to purposely cause harm rather than help the greater good, as part of a grand scheme to weaken and debilitate the human race?”  Read and consider - SERIOUSLY.

GENERAL/USEFUL

BOOK

======================================
“All political thinking for years past has been vitiated in the same way. People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome.”

~~ George Orwell
