Unspun News 160905

UNSPUNEWS - 160905


WORLD
“There has been a spate of truly dreadful anti-Syria articles published recently in ‘alternative’ media. Taken individually they would not normally be taken seriously, but as they seem to be feeding off each other, and as they share common characteristics, admittedly not unique to them, it is worth paying them some attention.”  Yes indeed …...

ERIC MARGOLIS - “What a mess! In the crazy Syrian war, US-backed and armed groups are fighting other US-backed rebel groups. How can this be?”  A penetrating look at the insanity ….

“In his remarks Lavrov said Russia is concerned over the US refusal to negotiate monitoring of biological weapons. According to him, the refusal leads to the conclusion that the US may be involved in biological research for military purposes.”  Logical, is it not?


“‘Russia killing top ISIS leader should compel US to seek bilateral cooperation“  Logical …. But …...

The shape of urban wars to come ….. “A San Diego tech firm specializing in mini-reconnaissance quadcopters has been awarded a million dollar contract to provide drones that scour urban battlefields and beam back critical information to the US army.”

“US war planes and battleships to start using Indian bases“

“German armed forces prepare for domestic operations;  German Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière announced somewhat casually on Wednesday that the police and Bundeswehr (armed forces) will conduct joint domestic operations in February 2017 for the first time. This represents a political turning point and is a clear breach of the German constitution.“

UNDER-REPORTED
“I’ve been creeped out by Facebook for a long time now. The following story takes it to another level.”  Seems like NO-ONE can say “I’m not on Facebook” and be certain they are telling the truth.  It’s not in your hands…..

“China Snubs Obama on Arrival for G-20 Summit“ … “He’s increasingly unwelcome wherever he shows up or should be. Imperial adventurism makes more enemies than friends.   The whole world should oppose US policies, ravaging and destroying one country after another, while treating its most vulnerable citizens harshly.“

“In an remarkable hit piece NYT spent over 5,000 words yesterday trying to prove that all of WikiLeaks’ leaks are motivated from a desire to benefit Russia.“

“One America, now the minority, functions in a print-based, literate world. It can cope with complexity and has the intellectual tools to separate illusion from truth. The other America, which constitutes the majority, exists in a non-reality-based belief system.”  And that’s how you conquer a country without firing a shot ….

Turkey’s turn-around ….. “The recent Turkish coup attempt marks a turning point in NATO’s war on Syria. An emerging empire and portal to the orient, Turkey has always played a key role in NATO’s ‘Drang Nach Osten’- the drive to encircle Russia, destroy its client-states Syria and Ukraine, and serve as a bulwark against other emerging powers such as Iran. But now it seems Turkey may no longer be carrying out its designated role.”

“By analyzing archaeological records of the European Neolithic communities, which existed roughly 9,000 years ago, researchers have identified the early warning signals linked to societal downfall.“   And guess what?  You’re in it.

“as everyone was busy arguing over the bread and circus elections, the CIA was busy funding a computer so powerful that it is described as “tapping into the fundamental fabric of reality” and the man who owns the company says being near one is like “standing at the altar of an alien God”.“

NUCLEAR
“Cleaning Up 2014 Nuclear Waste Disaster In United States May Cost More Than $2 Billion“

EARTH
Oz - “Flood warnings remain in place after heavy rainfall across parts of central western New South Wales. …. The State Emergency Service (SES) has made 20 flood rescues and answered more than 700 calls for help over the weekend.”

“Hermine strengthens off North Carolina, expected to return to hurricane force“

2 min video - “It's called a microburst -- that's a localized column of sinking air -- or downdraft-- within a thunderstorm.  Wind speeds in microbursts can reach up to 100 mph, or even higher, which is equivalent to an EF-1 tornado!”  Scary stuff…...

M5.7 @ 15km, Mindanao. Philippines.

“This talk of unprecedented sea-level rise is complete nonsense.” .. “Today’s sea-level rise is BELOW normal“

“An Arctic expedition designed to raise awareness of the perils of man-made climate change is being frustrated by unexpectedly large quantities of ice,”  How very embarrassing!

US - Montana - “.. a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for some areas beginning at noon on Sunday and continuing through noon Monday!” In early September??

“Hurricane "Lester" is passing northeast of Hawaiian Islands as a category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale on September 3, 2016.  Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours.“

UNCLASSIFIED
6 min video - “This Electricity of Life episode points out the range of interactions microscopic lifeforms have with physical matter, which goes beyond our normal schemas for what constitute "critical biological necessities." Alex also hopes to assist the viewer in visualizing this tiny scale of our familiar world.”

ALTERNATIVE
“What Happened to Downtime? The Extinction of Deep Thinking & Sacred Space;   We're addicted to distraction, and it's holding us back. To find genius in the 21st century, we must build a discipline of unplugging and deep thinking.“

PREDICTION/FORECASTS
Thus far, Hurricane Hermine is showing strong similarities to Super Storm Sandy’s early behavior even though key elements are not in place yet for a hybrid monster storm.  It’s still early in the season and we have a lunar eclipse coming up on September 16 that could raise havoc in the Indian Ocean and Indonesia in its first 13 days as it interacts with other elements in that area.  A primary interest is observing similarities between 2012 and 2016 to identify a four-year cycle.  Best regards, Krsanna (EarthTimes@timestar.org)

ASTRONOMIC
“Moment in the sun: NASA scientists get first ‘global picture of solar wind evolution’“  Looks  like another win for the Electric Universe theorists!

“Solar activity is low, however, it might not remain so. Big sunspot AR2585 is developed an unstable 'beta-gamma' magnetic field that harbors energy for moderately strong solar flares.”
ALSO - “A stream of very fast moving solar wind is buffeting Earth's magnetic field this weekend, and this is causing geomagnetic storms around the poles”

HEALTH
EM fields - and their negative effects….. This is truly a ‘need to know’…..

GENERAL/USEFUL
“Scientific study confirms that dogs grasp what their owners are saying“ … "Dog brains care about both what we say and how we say it," according to lead researcher Attila Andics. "Praise can work as a reward only if both word meaning and intonation match."
