Unspun News for the 20th May 2016

UNSPUNEWS - 160520


WORLD
“US Government's Own Report Shows Toxic TPP "Not Worth Passing"  'This report indicates the TPP will produce almost no benefits, but inflict real harm on so many [US] workers.'“  Not to mention the non-US workers…..

EGYPTAIR 804 - “Plane ‘swerved’ violently; Moved 90 degrees left, then 360 degrees right; plunged 22000 feet”  These are impossible manoeuvres for a passenger aircraft.  Now recall the recent reports of unexpected C.A.T. ….. And ponder.
“EgyptAir flight MS804: Still no sign of wreckage in hunt for plane missing over sea between Paris and Cairo“  Strangerer and strangerer ……..


“The U.S. Army’s War Over Russia;  Top brass profess to be really worried about Putin. But a growing group of dissenters say they’re overreacting to get a bigger share of the defense budget.“  A great reason to trash a planet, eh?

ERIC ZUESSE - “America’s & NATO’s Outrageous Behaviour, Greatest Threat that Exists“  Six points that prove that thesis ….   “… perhaps we’ll see what happens after July 8th and 9th. Will they call off their war? Or — as expected — escalate it to the next level?“

“The US Navy has dispatched a small armada to the South China Sea. The carrier John C Stennis, two destroyers, two cruisers and the 7th Fleet flagship have sailed into the disputed waters in recent days ... The carrier strike group is the latest show of force in the tense region, with the US asserting that China is militarizing the region to guard its excessive territorial claims”  From the US Navy Times.

“As the West is sucked deeper into the Syrian conflict and starts a new Cold War with Russia, the mainstream news media has collapsed as a vehicle for reliable information, creating a danger for the world, writes Robert Parry.“  SO true….

“NATO rearmament in Eastern Europe increases danger of world war“  No kidding?

UNDER-REPORTED
“Thanks to U.S. Congress, Endless War Will... Not End;   Attempt to repeal the 2001 authorization for a war with no apparent time or geographic limit fails in House of Representatives“  Figures …..

“It borders on the ridiculous – no, it is abjectly stupid, what the western presstitute media, led by the US is capable of doing.“  And even more stupid - the wholesale swallowing of all the propaganda by their audiences.

“Propaganda is as old as human society. However, it developed considerably during the age of mass society, and now follows strict rules. Thierry Meyssan looks at the history and the principles of the science of lying.”  INTERESTING!

“A Russian diplomatic call to outlaw the US-sponsored policy of “regime change” is timelier than ever following recent events in Latin America.   The developments there are now routinely described as ‘institutional’ coups d’├ętat, with popular presidents removed from power and replaced by neoliberal functionaries, enjoying almost unhidden support of the US government and American financial capital.“

“Turkey: On the Brink of Military Coup?“  “Turkish people have a very simple choice: either to replace insanity with intelligence and wisdom on the way to peace and prosperity, or continue on the present downward course under the smouldering ashes of civil war and destruction.”

NUCLEAR
“Billions of pieces Fukushima nuclear fuel have spread pretty much everywhere — “It’s truly frightening… wherever there’s cesium, there’s plutonium” — Atomic bomb had one pound of uranium… Fukushima had hundreds of tons — TV: “Abundant quantities” of plutonium are being found “

EARTH
“A severe weather warning has been issued for Tasmania with damaging winds expected across the entire state.   Several flood watches have now also been issued with river levels expected to rise this afternoon.“  (But so far, Unspun is unaffected!)

“..., another less damaging twister--from the same thunderstorm--has left seasoned scientists both astonished and fascinated. This tornado, which struck near Roff, OK, was rated an unexceptional EF1 on the Enhanced Fujita Tornado Damage Scale. However, the Roff tornado stands out in several other ways.”  Rare, unusual, unpredictable… reversed!

“Suddenly, in the Rhodope Mountains, quite unexpectedly, the snow fell.  According to local meteorologists, snow in the second half of May is a rare phenomenon even to this mountain area in Bulgaria.“

“Okhotsk Sea cyclone (vortex) brought snow to the south of Kamchatka.”

“Being able to evaluate the evidence behind any scientific claim is important. Being able to recognize bad science reporting or faults in scientific studies is equally important. These following points may help you separate the real science from the pseudo science.”  CARVE THESE IN STONE FOR YOURSELF!  EXCELLENT summary.

“According to Amin Baqeri, the governor of Rigan, Iran's southeastern province of Kerman, 16 villages in Rigan were buried in sand and became completely deserted amid consistent sand storms.  "Massive sand influx and consistent sand storms have led to the complete disappearance of the villages under piles of sand. Agriculture and livestock are totally ruined in this area, and it suffered a loss of nearly $9 million USD“  You thought you had problems?

M6.9, M6.7 Near coast of Ecuador, 30~40km.

M5.6 @ 161 km, Catamarca, Argentina.

UNCLASSIFIED
VERY intriguing indeed.  “This is no ordinary boy. His mother states that he began speaking at just four months, and pronouncing full words shortly after. At eight months he was speaking in sentences, and at the  age of two he could read. He become a local celebrity for being so intelligent, and when he turned three he could name all of the planets in the Solar System, how many galaxies there were, and a lot more. He knew so much about astronomy that would be impossible for a child of his age.  He also remembers one of his past lives on Mars, where his incarnation apparently took place millions of years ago. In the interview, he made a number of statements such as …..”  Read on!

ALTERNATIVE
“Can We Talk to E.T.? Workshop Mulls Alien Intelligence”
And if they are telepathic?  Would they even WANT to talk to us????

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Sunspot AR2546 is big but quiet. Solar activity remains low.”
ALSO - “High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras, especially in the southern hemisphere where darkening autumn skies favour visibility”

“Stars are not constant.“  A look at the ‘flickering’ of stars and the reason behind it - many interesting potentials!

HEALTH
“Why Napping Is Necessary & What It Can Do To Your Body: Backed By Science”

“Cure: Can the power of our minds help us heal ourselves?   A meticulously researched book about the healing power of the mind has much to offer, but with quacks aplenty we shouldn't abandon proper scepticism“ … “should be compulsory reading for all young doctors. And reading it might just turn out to be good for your body as well as for your mind.”

“Big Pharma’s Competition: The Eradication Of Natural Alternatives“  First, profit;  last, your health….

GENERAL/USEFUL
“The fossil remains of a 50-million-year-old bird with a six-metre wingspan have been found in Antarctica.“

Fascinating - “The Antikythera Mechanism has been called an “ancient calculator,” but there is so much more to it than meets the eye. (…) This makes it an analog computer of great complexity. No other machine of known existence shows a similarity in advanced engineering for at least another 1,000 years.”
