Unspun News for the 14th February 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160214


WORLD
“Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has vowed to recapture the whole of Syria and keep "fighting terrorism" while also negotiating an end to the war, as international pressure mounts for a ceasefire.“  Assad’s “The buck stops here” moment?

From Nubi … "Thank you Russia! Thank you Hezbollah! Thank you Iran!" shouts the man, as he passes us in the busy square.  Nearby, a photograph of Bashar al-Assad beams down from the front of the town hall, and banners in support of the Syrian President hang outside the main mosque.  This is Nubl, a mostly Shia, pro-government town in Syria, so close to the border with Turkey…. “

ERIC ZUESSE - “The continuation of NATO, after its counterpart the Warsaw Pact ended in 1991, is an insanity that’s driving the world inexorably toward World War III.”  Sadly, his logic is excellent …..


“Former Greek finance minister says Europe is disintegrating, run by a cartel and in dire need of reform. “

“Turkish military shells Kurds fighting Islamist rebels in northern Syria“

UNDER-REPORTED
“Are Americans Too Insouciant To Survive?”  EXCELLENT question from PCR - and his bottom line is inarguable.  PCR appears to be one of the very few awake and aware Americans left standing - this overview is almost frighteningly perceptive.  And even more frighteningly predictive …..  A definite MUST READ.  Trouble is too - this does and will affect the entire world.  NO exceptions. Good luck, my friends…..

“A Reuters article quoted Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev as “raising the specter of a world war” in an interview to a German newspaper. The problem is – he didn’t say any such words.“

“No one can say for certain who will be president of the United States one year from now. We do know that he or she will continue to bring disaster all over the world.”  That’s the bottom line…. Slowly the monster emerges from the fog…...

NUCLEAR
“A doctor from Alice Springs has driven almost 10,000 kilometres to visit all six sites shortlisted for Australia's first nuclear waste dump. With a four-wheel drive and a basic camera, the pair documented their trip across the remote land where  the Federal Government is planning on storing low-level and intermediate nuclear waste.
Dr Tyler said they decided to do the "grand tour" because it was a national issue.  "It was really interesting to talk to everybody because they're worried about the same thing that people in Alice Springs are worried about," ....  "They're worried about the really shonky process that the Government's pursuing. People are worried everywhere about water. Australia is a dry country."  Bless all activists…..

EARTH
M5.1 @ 9km, Solomon Is.

M5.1 @ 20km, Santa Cruz Is region.

M5.1 @ 2km, Oklahoma, US.
ALSO -

“Comment: Frost in tropical Costa Rica in the middle of its summer? Nothing to see here folks, keep believing in global warming! Alternatively, you can have a look at these articles … “

“150,000 penguins killed after colossal iceberg in Antarctica leaves colony landlocked“

“Record cold: Single digit to subzero Valentine’s Day expected for much of NE USA”

“Floods Hit Dominican Republic and Haiti After 216 mm of Rain in 24 Hours“

UNCLASSIFIED
“The Internet and Social Fragmentation”  A VERY thought-provoking article indeed - full of deep questions, and the last para says it all - “I dunno. You tell me. “

“Researcher illegally shares millions of science papers free online to spread knowledge;  
Welcome to the Pirate Bay of science.“

“'Science' of GMO crops is completely wrong: gene modifications affect far more than targeted proteins”  And where the hell could that take us????

A ‘simple’ look at Quantum Entanglement ….  About as simple as it gets, anyway!!

ALTERNATIVE

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Caught in the act: UW astronomers find a rare supernova ‘impostor’ in a nearby galaxy“ … “a massive star that for some reason is showing this enormous flare of activity,””

“Sunspot AR2497 is crackling with M-class solar flares, and it has developed a 'beta-gamma-delta' magnetic field that harbors energy for even stronger X-flares. Any eruptions this weekend will be geoeffective as the sunspot is approximately facing Earth.”

HEALTH
“When bananas start getting black spots all over them, they either become banana bread or trash, but the uses don’t stop there! Scientists have actually found that they might be useful in both detecting and treating skin cancer.“

“I live only two hours from the epicenter of the Zika outbreak in Brazil where an epidemic of microcephaly is taking place. The situation is not what is being wildly reported. It has little or nothing to do with a mild virus called Zika any more than it has to do with the virus thought responsible for the common cold, though as we shall see scientists have been playing around with genetically modified mosquitoes in Brazil. Dr. Wallace Ransom says, “Only about one in five victims of the Zika virus actually suffers any effects at all.”

“If homeopathy proves one thing, it's that no illness is local. Not even a wart.“  Interesting ….

GENERAL/USEFUL
“Take a look back at five other "wonder dogs" through Australia's history — canines who proved of invaluable help or became legendary through their exploits.“

“The Divine Creator said to us, “If you want to be my children, you should not use your knowledge to destroy, kill, or misuse what I gave you.  If you do not respect this law, you are not my children.”
