Unspun News for the 7th March 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160307


WORLD
THE SAKER - “Week twenty-one of the Russian military intervention in Syria: the calm before the storm?”  As ever - VERY interesting viewpoint on the status quo.

“No Way Back for Re-Emerging Silk Road in Flux“  I can’t see this NOT being seen as a threat by the Western bloc….. 

“Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said on Saturday that the United States have virtually proclaimed a war against Venezuela.”


“The organisation of the mechanism designed for an attack on Libya continues. While Allied Special Forces are already at work on the ground, new equipment is being installed in France and Italy.”

UNDER-REPORTED
“Berta C├íceres, the Honduran indigenous and environmental rights campaigner, has been murdered, barely a week after she was threatened for opposing a hydroelectric project.“  Becoming a norm now …...

“It’s not only the right-wing think tanks (...) that urge America to invade countries that pose no threat against the US, but also liberal think tanks (...) that urge firebombing of cities and even ethnic cleansing in order to defeat foreign leaders whom the American aristocracy want to overthrow.”

“There is a growing and disturbing trend of anti-intellectual elitism in American culture. It’s the dismissal of science, the arts, and humanities and their replacement by entertainment, self-righteousness, ignorance, and deliberate gullibility.“  There’s hints of it elsewhere, too….

NUCLEAR
“Fukushima: Five years on from nuclear meltdown locals still in the dark about future“  And here, but for the grace of ……  ???

Fukushima - “As the fifth anniversary of the disaster approaches, Greenpeace said signs of mutations in trees and DNA-damaged worms were beginning to appear, while "vast stocks of radiation" mean that forests cannot be decontaminated.”

EARTH
“Solar-Powered Vacuum Could Suck Up 24,000 Tons of Ocean Plastic Every Year”  Absolutely BRILLIANT!

“More than five trillion pieces of plastic, collectively weighing nearly 269,000 tonnes, are floating in the world’s oceans, causing damage throughout the food chain, new research has found.”  Read and weep …...

“An underwater research craft has spotted a "ghostlike" octopus that appears to belong to a previously unknown species on the ocean floor near Hawaii.

“River VANISHES overnight after an earth tremor opens up a 30m crack that it is now pouring into, leaving 10,000 without water in Mexico”  Get used to it …...

“New Discovery: Foxes Track Prey Using Magnetic Fields“

INDIA - “As many as three people were killed, including two minors, while two others sustained severe burns and 42 cattle lost their lives after being struck by lightning in separate incidents today, police said.”

“Airborne particles known as “aerosols” strongly impact the way clouds form and change, but accurately capturing this effect in computer climate models has proved to be notoriously difficult. A new study (…) suggests why”

“Heavy rain, strong winds and flash floods hit drought-stricken California“

UNCLASSIFIED
“THE Hungerford UFO mystery has deepened as a man claiming to be a former Ministry of Defence policeman has broken ranks to declare: “I saw it too.”   The retired officer said an object, identical in appearance to that photographed by Vanessa Cloete over the town’s Charnham Park area last year, terrified him and a colleague as it swooped down on them above the Greenham Common nuclear missile silos.“

ALTERNATIVE
“A California man on Wednesday said he saw a judge “changing shape” in West Los Angeles.”  I know two people who make similar claims - and have ZILCH to gain from lying.

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Solar activity remains very low.”

HEALTH
“1.4 million die from lung cancer each year, with 1.6 million newly diagnosed. Could the humble noni leaf extract offer a more effective cancer treatment than a drug that can cost over 100,000 dollars, and improves lung cancer survival rates by only a few months?”  Big Pharma’s worst nightmare …..

“Vladimir Putin stated in a report prepared by the Security Council that Russians should be protected from GMO foods and pharmaceutical companies “at all costs.”

“Us Supreme Court Ruling Could Effectively End Legal Marijuana Sales“   Would be a BIG win for Big Pharma

“Natural Remedies for Heartburn Relief“

“Raw science actually supports Antivaxxers: vaccines utterly DESTROY cellular immunity“

GENERAL/USEFUL
Insanity gone totally insane - “Packaged peeled oranges 'convenience gone mad', Clean Up Australia Day founder says“  BUT - also see bananas (in UK) at bottom.  DUH…?   http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-03-06/packaged-peeled-oranges-convenience-gone-mad/7224368

BOOK

======================================
“If you help others, you will be helped, perhaps tomorrow, perhaps in one hundred years, but you will be helped. Nature must pay off the debt...It is a mathematical law and all life is mathematics.”
