Unspun News for the 14th January 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160114


WORLD
“The financial collapse of the United States grows more inevitable,  (…) Estimates of total American debt however, and which include unfunded liabilities, are much higher and range from 150 trillion to 350 trillion dollars. But even at twenty trillion, every American man, woman and child owes something in the vicinity of $60,000, and at the higher estimate, the per capita debt figure balloons to nearly $9 million.”  As an Unspun reader points out:- “... despite the predictions, the USA continues on its path.  (…)  IMO, matters are far more under control than we are lead to believe.  If the wheels do come off, it will be at a time, and in a manner that suits the puppeteers.”  I totally agree.

“While the Saud family enjoys the last few moments of its dictatorship, the decapitation of the leader of the opposition, Nimr al-Nimr, deprives half of the Saudi population of all hope. For Thierry Meyssan, the fall of the kingdom has become inevitable. It will probably be accompanied by a long period of extreme violence.”


This is the Baltic Dry Index graph for the past month.  Message received?
ALSO - see this - “Another day, another plunge in The Baltic Dry Index, which just dropped a further 3.1% to 402 today – a new record low. While the index is driving headlines, under the surface, reality in the shipping (and shipbuilding) industry is a disaster.”

UNDER-REPORTED

US - “the Supreme Court on Monday refused to take up a petition from a privacy advocacy group seeking to uncover secret Department of Homeland Security documents regarding a cell phone kill switch plan.“  NOT ‘only in America’ - simple rational logic says these kill-switch exist.

EARTH

“Sprit of Tasmania ferry damaged after breaking moorings in rough weather at Port Melbourne“

“From seabirds to whales to antelopes to starfish, animal die-offs across the globe are raising alarm about the deadly impact of climate change on the world's ecosystems and their vulnerable inhabitants.”  Not unexpected - and this is the thinnest edge of the wedge of climates changing.

“Residents of the town of Cervinia in northwest Italy learned firsthand what a "near miss" means as a gigantic wall of snow was about to devour the popular ski resort. “  Sheeesh!!!

“Picture a volcano. Now imagine that its main vent extends in a line. Now imagine that this line is so long that it runs for more than 40,000 miles through the dark recesses of all the world’s oceans, girding the globe like the seams of a baseball.“  All you never wanted to know about the Mid-Ocean Ridges …..

A very intriguing read - from a much higher perspective.  This is what it’s all about, Alfie!

“This is HUGE – it opens up not only communication possibilities but quantum computing possibilities. Meaning computers from the future may already be communicating with one another back through the internet and back through time.”  VERY intriguing!!!

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Curious "spider vein" starburst markings are cropping up on Mars in the red planet's annual spring show.   Every year during spring, carbon dioxide ice erodes Mars' terrains as it sublimates (going directly from ice to vapour).“

“Solar activity is very low and likely to remain so for the next 24 hours.”

“Current Models of the Sun — A Charged Subject Part 3”  A few were WAY ahead of their time!

HEALTH
“Big Pharma Shaking in Their Boots as 80% of Cannabis Users Give Up Prescriptions Pills for Pot;  A survey of 473 adult therapeutic cannabis users found that 87% of respondents gave up prescription medications, alcohol, or other drugs in favor of cannabis.“

“A new study at the University of La Plata in Argentina found that about 85% of cotton products such as gauze, cotton balls, feminine products like pads and tampons, baby wipes, etc. tested positive for glyphosate. Another even more staggering finding is that 62% of the tested products had traces of AMPA, a environmental metabolite aminomethylphosphonic acid that is a derivative of glyphosate and is potentially one thousand times more toxic than glyphosate.”    Sneaky stuff, eh?  Yeah, riiiight.

GENERAL/USEFUL

BOOK

======================================
“To make a practice of spirituality, you must first acknowledge that your life is bigger than this life.  And in the best of it and in the worst of it, this knowing is like a North Star in the uncharted waters of your life. If you see that star, you know that your head is above water.”
