Tom Feeley’s back! (nearly!)


WORLD
“When I arrived to Bangkok (Tha├»land) the other day, coming down the motorway from the airport I saw a huge billboard—and it floored me.   The billboard was from the Bank of China. It said: “RMB: New Choice; The World Currency”    Given that the Bank of China is more than 70% owned by the government of the People’s Republic of China, I find this very significant.”
ALSO - (There was movement at the station, For the word had got around……)
“Lukashenka signed decree No. 450 “Concerning the redenomination of the official currency of the Republic of Belarus” on 4 November.   The document specifies that the official currency of the Republic of Belarus will be redenominated on 1 July 2016. “


“As explosions from detonated mines continued in the background a Syrian general confirmed in some detail an ugly truth: Washington and its close allies Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel backed the ISIS takeover and destruction of Palmyra.“

“The link between Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS“

UNDER-REPORTED
“Over 60% of Brazilians do not believe that President Dilma Rousseff should be subject to impeachment proceedings, but a cadre of corrupt far right politicians armed with NSA surveillance documents continue to push for her ouster.” … “Of the 38 who voted for impeachment, 35 are actually under investigation for corruption, and of the 27 who voted against impeachment, only 2 are under investigation for corruption."  Says it all, eh?

“U.S. Economy 2016: 3 Classic Recession Signals Are Flashing Red“

NUCLEAR
“ Nuclear reactor fears after huge earthquake strikes Japan… Authorities raced to assess the damage to THREE nuclear power plants which sit just miles from the epicentre — A massive deadly earthquake that hit Japan left many fearing a Fukushima-like tragedy could happen after the epicentre rocked homes and building just miles from THREE nuclear reactors”

Tritium dumping at Fukushima - 
“The amount of tritium considered for potential release would be about 3.4 peta becquerels. This is a large amount of potential contamination to dump into the sea. Little has been studied on the impact this release would have on fish and plant species used for food.”

EARTH
M6.5 @ 10km, Vanuatu.

M5.7 @ 188km, Kepuluan Barat Daya, Indonesia.

M5.5 @ 100km, Molucca Sea.

“Aftershocks have rattled south-western Japan after a strong earthquake killed nine people, injured at least 1,000 and cut power and water across the region.”

“Satellite images reveal dramatic tropical glacier retreat”

M6.2 @ 45km, offshore Guatemala

M7.0 @ 10km, Kyushu, Japan.
“Tsunami warning lifted after second powerful earthquake in Japan's south”

UK - “The far north could see up to two inches of snow tomorrow morning, triggering warnings for icy conditions on the roads.   The mercury will plummet to -10C in places, with Arctic windchill making it feel like -10C in other spots, forecasters have predicted.  The good news is the icy snap is only expected to last a few days with spring making a return next week.“

US - “Snow begins in the mountains on Friday. There is a Winter Storm Warning in effect from noon Friday to 6am Sunday.   Here is the Winter Storm Warning for the Denver Metro:...“

“6.4 Japan Earthquake / Tambora Scale VEI-7 Volcano Alert“

ALTERNATIVE

PREDICTION/FORECASTS
KRSANNA DURAN - ‘TimeStar Forecasts and announcements’ - “Stay tuned for the next quake and/or volcano in the two sequences TimeStar predicted on February 29.  See 7.0 magnitude quake in Japan April 15.  The West Coast of the USA has been too quiet.  It is the one location that await a large event among the seven areas TimeStar named.”  
“Two major sequences are probable in March and April: 
1.       America’s West Coast, Japan-Russia and Eurasian Plate
2.       Mexico, South America and Indonesia-Philippines”

ASTRONOMIC
“Big sunspot AR2529 is crackling with minor C-class solar flares.”

“The electric star theory supports IBEX observations because it is exactly where the Sun’s neutral current sheet should interact with galactic electrons in a z-pinch. So, in an Electric Universe, ENAs probably acquire electrons from galactic charge flow.“  Lots of logical explanations for the unexplained …. And NO coincidences!

A Martian panorama - c/w dust devil!

HEALTH
Oz - “Victoria has become the first state in Australia to legalise the use of medicinal cannabis.“

Medical journal says fluoride is in same toxin category as brain-damaging lead and mercury”

“Despite the media frenzy over Zika, the CDC admits on its own website that people self-immunize against the virus. "People usually don't get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika," says the CDC's Zika information page. "For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections."

“Levels of selenium, a mineral essential for good health, are so low in soil that it's affecting the food chain, diets and, ultimately, the risk of disease. Low selenium levels may lead to a higher risk of cancer, a study has concluded.“

GENERAL/USEFUL
“Bridging the gap between buckyballs and graphene”

“Quantum dots enhance light-to-current conversion in layered semiconductors;  Research demonstrates promise of a new approach for improving solar cells, photocatalysts, light sensors, and other optoelectronic devices“
