Vortex Based Math - The Philosopher's Stone

 “Mathematics is the language of God, but no one is speaking God’s language.” -- Marko Rodin

Marko claimed to be able to use his numbers to harness the power of spin, liberating a heretofore unobserved, untapped ‘zero-point’ energy, to create a vertical lift wingless flying machine with the ability to travel anywhere in the universe.  This energy has been known by many names in science (tachyons, monopoles, theta particles, dark energy) but this was the first time the anyone had claimed a mathematical model that could pinpoint a ‘when and where’ location in space that would allow it to be harnessed.  In other words, we now had the blueprint for constructing a flying saucer.  Marko called his machine, “The Flux Thruster Atom Pulsar Electrical Venturi Space Time Implosion Field Generator Coil.” -- source

Extraordinary and beautiful examples of toroidal vortices produced by dolphins, beluga whales, humpback whales, volcanoes, hydrogen/atomic bombs, and Man.

A toroidal vortex, also called a vortex ring, is a region of rotating fluid moving through the same or different fluid where the flow pattern takes on a toroidal (doughnut) shape. The movement of the fluid is about the poloidal or circular axis of the doughnut, in a twisting vortex motion. Examples of this phenomenon are a smoke ring or a microburst. Vortex rings were first mathematically analysed by the German physicist Hermann von Helmholtz, in his paper of 1867 On Integrals of the Hydrodynamical Equations which Express Vortex-motion Smoke rings have probably been observed since antiquity since they can easily be blown from the mouth.

***Toroidal animation that appears at the beginning and end (and the 'fibration' animation at 2:55) were created by Paul Nylander (

***The 17 second clip of the humpback whale bubble rings shown from 1:56 to 2:13 is from danthewhaleman (The Whale Video Company).***

Hurricane Sandy Simulation 1997

Westchester County Communications Officer Sandy Fried, an Amateur Radio operator and ODES staff member, had recently [1997] attended a training seminar at the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Part of the training was a simulation using data from the Hurricane of 1938 that caused major losses on Long Island and in Westchester. The texts of the simulated bulletins, forecasts, discussions and strike probabilities along with the hurricane's track were sent home with the seminar attendees. We named the simulated hurricane after Sandy, who incidentally was nine years old during the real Hurricane of 1938.

These texts were used as the drill stimulus. They were time-shifted to simulate land-fall around 6pm on Saturday, October 4th. Working backward from this time, we used these texts to generate and automatically update a World Wide Web status page ( and send email to the Westchester ARES/RACES email reflector and fax to the County Emergency Operations center at the times that the National Weather Service would normally have sent them.


1938 hurricane that hit the New England area with recorded wind speeds of 173-183 mph...makes Sandy look like a summer shower. This strong Cat.-3 Hurricane struck several coastal areas of New England in September of 1938 with little warning, killing 256 people and moving at a forward speed over 50 MPH. The Blue Hill Observatory at Milton, Massachusetts reported a sustained wind of 121 MPH with a gust of 183 MPH. Hartford Connecticut had a low pressure reading of 28.04 inches. Just over 2000 people were injured. Damage was around $250-million dollars. (1938-dollars.)

How Global Financial Collapse Can Happen: A Currency Wars Simulation

James G. Rickards is an American lawyer, economist, and investment banker with 35 years of experience working in capital markets on Wall Street. He is a writer and is a regular commentator on finance. Rickards advised clients of an impending financial collapse, of a decline in the dollar and a sharp rise in the price of gold, all years in advance. He believes the United States needs to go back to a gold standard and was one of the first to promote this view. Rickards is the author of The New York Times bestseller Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis, published in 2011.

Rickards has assisted both the Pentagon and the CIA in war gaming global currency wars that lead to global financial collapse. He explains one likely scenario in this video.

60% of American views China as a threat to U.S. national security. -- Gallup Poll

"We're not naive about the relationship and neither is China." -- Defense Secretary Leon Panetta

Derivatives are "financial weapons of mass destruction." -- Warren Buffett

"We're going to have a catastrophic event in cyber security." -- Admiral Mike Mullen, Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

"Ben Bernanke's dollar weakening policies could be more dangerous to our economy and the national security of the United States than al-Qaeda." -- James G. Rickards

Full movie:

The findings from what you're about to view suggest that our government, our economy, and your wealth may soon fall victim to a devastating and incomprehensible assault from the rise of Currency Wars.

Appearing in this video investigation is a team of the top minds in economics, politics, and national security... including presidential candidate and Chairman of Forbes Media — Steve Forbes, an adviser of National Intelligence, the Pentagon, and the CIA — James Rickards, acclaimed economist and author — Robert Wiedemer, author of Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown, and global currency analyst Sean Hyman. To be discussed on this powerful investigation:

• Discover why the Federal Reserve and Capitol Hill may have intentionally launched a currency war against China, Iran, and much of the world. And learn what our enemies are doing to retaliate.

• Learn of the untold impact of quantitative easing and "Operation Twist" on the wealth of average Americans. Have these financial aggressions caused you to be unknowingly robbed of over a quarter of your net worth?

• Become aware of unconventional attacks our enemies could use to bring down the financial markets and our economy in a single day.

• Find out whether China has been using their military to secretly stockpile gold. And learn what effect this will have on the dollar and gold prices if the truth comes to light that they are doing so.

• Assess whether Iran will close off the Strait of Hormuz, causing an energy inflation shockwave, and uncover an under-the-radar alliance they've formed with China and Russia that threatens our dollar's status as the world's reserve currency.

Ganjapreneurs Rescue Colorado's Economy

Denver, Colo., has more medical pot dispensaries than Starbucks, but the budding business, legal in 17 states, defies federal laws. Steve Kroft reports.

Story Transcript: Medical Marijuana: Will Colorado's "green rush" last?

"It's about a two billion dollar market in 2012, growing to just under nine billion dollars in 2016. So you're seeing hockey stick growth." -- Tripp Keber, CEO of Dixie Elixirs

This is all private enterprise, licensed and regulated and taxed by the state. It was enshrined in the Colorado constitution after voters approved an amendment allowing the sale of marijuana to people who can demonstrate that they may benefit from its avowed medicinal properties. Matt Cook, a former narcotics officer, wrote the law and served as the state's first director of enforcement.

Steve Kroft: What's the economic impact been?

Matt Cook: It's huge. There's over a million square feet of leased space in the Denver area. Look at all the electrical contractors, the HVAC contractors, a number of ancillary businesses. It's huge. Tax revenues exceeded -- I believe the last number I heard was in excess of $20 million.

Frankenstorm Electrified by HAARP - Watch Out New York!

Hurricane Sandy -- Possible East Coast 'Frankenstorm' 

Really a LOT of media hype with this, however, always good to be prepared just in case !!

Hurricane Sandy -- currently a category 2, projected to go down to a category 1 over the next 24 hours.....

They (the forecasters and MSM) are calling the storm a "frankenstorm" due to the mix of two systems (tropical and low pressure arctic) -- plus a reference to the general time of Halloween coming up during approximate landfall time.

Strong damaging winds (80-100mph) are forecast -- also flooding rains, and heavy snow, and with high surf along the coast.

Current projected paths forecast to make a landfall between North Carolina, and Massachusetts...

Use the links here to monitor severe weather nationally, and internationally.

October 26, 2012 - 1:00p EDT  -

Strongest readings in the history of this project have peaked. A never before seen white-shade indicates that a value higher than 10 on the
1-10 scale has been indicated. It has no color assigned!

HaarpStatus has finally come to a bullseye over what looks like Rhode Island and Connecticut.

Current projections at NOAA say Hurricane Sandy will hit New Jersey. Our status numbers disagree. The storm is being steered toward the higher concentration numbers.

Truly remarkable numbers and it is one to archive because this may never be seen again in a very long time.

Rumors of War 3: Target U.S.

GBTV's new documentary, “Rumors of War 3: Target U.S.”, provides irrefutable evidence of the attacks currently being perpetrated by the likes of Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood. And the scariest part? It’s happening right before our eyes.

Examples within our own government:

Want to Know Just How Close the Muslim Brotherhood Is to the Obama Admin?

Arif Alikahn, Former Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Policy Development:  Now a Distinguished Visiting Professor of DHS and Counterterrorism at the National Defense University, Alikahn also served as Deputy Mayor for Public Safety for the City of Los Angeles where he reportedly derailed the LAPD’s efforts to monitor the city’s Muslim community — particularly its radical mosques and madrassas where certain 9/11 hijackers were said to have received support. He is affiliated with MPAC, which has called the terrorist group Hezbollah a “liberation movement.”

Want to Know Just How Close the Muslim Brotherhood Is to the Obama Admin?

Salam al-Marayati, Founder and Executive Director of Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC): Marayati is an Iraqi immigrant who drew national attention over a decade ago when then-House Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt nominated him to serve on the National Commission on Terrorism. Backlash over al-Marayati’s defense of Hezbollah and other Islamic groups prompted a withdrawal of the nomination. The Center for Security Policy reports that MPAC was formed in 1986 as the Political Action Committee for the Islamic Center for Southern California, one of the largest Wahhabi mosques in the country. While MPAC later fractioned-off, one of the founders of the Islamic Center, Hassan Hathout, was a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood who also spent time in Egyptian prison. 

Muslim Brotherhood Creed: "Jihad is our Way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope." 

Founded in 1928 by Egyptian schoolteacher and staunch Adolf Hitler admirer, Hasan al-Banna, the Muslim Brotherhood is no new-comer to the game of radical Islam. In fact, the Sunni group is considered the oldest and most powerful Islamist organization in the world to date. It is the ideological predecessor of Hamas, Hezbollah and even al Qaeda. Active in at least 70 countries around the world (some estimates claim 100), the Brotherhood’s long-stated purpose is to provide resistance to the secularization and westernization of Islamic nations by promoting the tenets of the Quran and its “legal” framework, Shariah law. Further, its ultimate goal was to be the destruction of non-Islamic states through jihad — or holy war — resulting in the establishment of an Islamic caliphate — one that would eclipse the whole of the western world and beyond. -- PushBackNow

Hunting and Hearing Protection
Hunting, Hearing and Fashion

Guest Post by John O'Connor

Hi my name is John O'Connor, I am a father, outdoorsman and passionate about living a healthy lifestyle. Over the past few years I have become more and more interested in hearing loss. My father and grandfathers, who are and were all hunters, are affected by hearing loss. I feel that there is a general lack of understanding around the issue and it is our job to spread awareness where we can. Check out my new blog at!

Hunting and Hearing 

When I first went hunting with my father, he fitted me with a gun and the right visibility clothing, and then he showed me how to insert earplugs to protect my hearing. At first I thought they felt weird, and a lot of my other teenage friends never wore hearing protection. Being at an age where everything was a fashion contest, I argued with him that the shots weren’t that loud and I never experienced any pain in my ears. My father told me that he wished my grandfather would have known more about hearing protection and taught him to wear the proper protection while hunting. Because of hunting and a few other reasons my father, now in his late 70’s has been affected by hearing loss for years. He now wears a hearing aid to help amplify hearing levels and is grateful that the damage was not worse. Since then I have always been conscious about my hearing protection while hunting.

Guns are Loud! 

According to the Center for Disease Control, the sound of a firearm can exceed 140 dB, making it an occupational hazard. When you consider the fact that a normal conversation is 60dB, and each increase of ten dB means the sound is twice as loud, you begin to realize how damaging firearm sounds can be! A gunshot is 256 times louder than a normal conversation, and can be very damaging over time. A study found that the older the hunter, the more likely he or she was to have experienced hearing loss.

Loud noises damage the ear by causing the loss of inner and outer hair cells deep within the ear. Noise damage can also cause the swelling of small parts in the ear and damage the nerve cells that transmit sounds to the brain. This type of damage lead to the feeling of pressure in the ear, ringing in the ear, difficulty hearing high-pitched sounds or background noise, and hearing loss.

Protecting Your Ears 

While the foam earplugs served me well in the 1970s, today’s technology has made strides in ear protection. A lot of hunters say that they don’t wear hearing protection because they don’t want to miss the sounds of the experience or a comment from someone in their hunting party. They don’t need to worry with electronic earmuffs. According to the Sight & Hearing Association, these high-tech muffs only block sounds that are above 110 decibels, so hunters can still hear the leaves crackle beneath their feet. If these aren’t an option, then the classic earmuff-style protectors do just fine. Those who wear hearing aids should ask a doctor whether to leave them in or take them out when using protection. The CDC also recommends that anyone who has constant exposure to high noise (like someone who goes to the shooting range two hours a day) should wear double protection – earplugs and earmuffs.

When my children have grown old enough to hunt I will make sure to teach them the proper rules to ensure not only hearing protection but overall safety. I am excited to not only pass on a great sport, but also great advice that will protect them as they get older. -- ###

Concealable Universal Handcuff Key

Universal "plastic" handcuff key opens all brand of cuffs. The flat, round shape conceals its purpose as a handcuff key. Made from thermoplastic resin blend, this durable, lightweight handcuff key evades metal detectors and can be hidden behind shirt and pant buttons or siliconed beneath watches and mace cans. This universal handcuff key can be hooked on shirt tags, pant leg hems, hat brims, sun glasses cords, spare buttons, etc. This universal handcuff key was designed and patented for hostage evasion scenarios. Handcuffs continue to be the restraint of choice for hostage management, given their wide availability and ease of hostage transport. Thus, this concealable, durable universal handcuff key could be a life saver for travelers abroad.

In the event that personnel are trapped in a pair of handcuffs or related leg restraints, they can silently access and remove these universal handcuff keys hidden in their clothing. Using their thumb and index finger on one hand, they can silently twist out the universal cuff key from its retaining ring and unlock the cuffs. While slightly larger than a nickel the unique design of this universal handcuff key enables the user to secure the cuff key behind buttons on any type of clothing and buttoning the clothing normally over top the key. The extremely lightweight form factor does not show through the clothing, nor does it create any telling ripples or wrinkles in the clothing. Even the latest technology in metal detectors does not reveal the presence of this universal plastic handcuff key.

The exact size of this universal handcuff key matches the back of many watches, including the Timex Iron Man and the Casio G-Shock watches. Users can silicone the key to the back of the watch. The key blends with the shape, size and material of these watches, so its presence is seamless and undetectable.

The special material blend is critical to the function of this universal key. The cuff key is lightweight and durable enough to be used as a daily cuff key. However, the key itself can be easily and silently removed from its retaining ring with a single index finger and thumb. This "plastic" handcuff key works on all brands of handcuffs.

Existing users of the universal handcuff key usually wear between 4 and 12 keys on their person.

The universal handcuff key is available in black, olive drab, tan and white. Color improves the ability for the key to blend in to the surrounding materials.

Cool! I want a dozen. - c

Survival Blog reader Denise G. wrote to mention that it in some states it is illegal to fail to report to arresting police officers that you are carrying a concealed handcuff key. In Florida it is a felony!

DARPA Creates Terminator Prototype

In this video, the Pet-Proto, a predecessor to DARPA's Atlas robot, is confronted with obstacles similar to those robots might face in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC). To maneuver over and around the obstacles, the robot exercises capabilities including autonomous decision-making, dismounted mobility and dexterity. The DARPA Robotics Challenge will test these and other capabilities in a series of tasks that will simulate conditions in a dangerous, degraded, human-engineered environment. Teams participating in Tracks B and C of the DRC will compete for access to a modified version of the Atlas robot for use in the 2013 and 2014 live disaster-response challenge events.

The Decency of Mitt

The Decency of Mitt

By Deroy Murdock, via National Review Online

Why is Mitt Romney rising? Americans who watched the GOP nominee debate President Obama never met the cold, greedy, sexist, racist, carcinogenic tax cheat that Team Obama promised would appear. The calm, steady, and reasonable gentleman who opposed Obama was no Gordon Gekko.

Americans might like Romney even more if they understood his random acts of kindness and significant feats of bravery.

As Mara Gay, Dan Hirschhorn, and M. L. Nestel wrote for  

“A man weighed down by the image of a heartless corporate raider who can’t relate to people actually has a history of doing remarkably kind things for those in need.”

• After Joey O’Donnell, 12, died of cystic fibrosis in 1986, Romney built a playground in his honor. “There he was, with a hammer in his belt, the Mitt nobody sees,” the boy’s father and Romney’s neighbor, Joseph O’Donnell, told Michael Kranish and Scott Helman, authors of The Real Romney. A year later, Joey’s Park needed maintenance. “The next thing I know, my wife calls me up and says, ‘You’re not going to believe this, but Mitt Romney is down with a bunch of Boy Scouts and they’re working on the park.’ . . . He did it for like the next five years, without ever calling to say, ‘We’re doing this,’ without a reporter in tow, not looking for any credit.”

• On a chilly December night in the 1980s, a Mormon bishop told Romney about a parishioner’s daughter. This single mom, a non-church member, was shivering after her heating oil had been shut off. Romney and his sons stuffed their Gran Torino with firewood, drove from Boston’s affluent Belmont suburb to the modest Dorchester district, unloaded the logs, and built a fire for the relieved family.

• Ellen Hummel’s father worked with Romney at Bain Capital, but died when she was just 5. She later asked Romney to help her attend Columbia Medical School. He loaned her tuition money. Just before graduation, Hummel received a Christmas letter from Romney. “It was something caring,” Dr. Hummel, now a Michigan general practitioner, told “It was something saying, ‘This is a gift.’” Romney forgave Dr. Hummel’s loan.

• In 1995, Romney heard about the Nixons, a family who moved to Boston. Soon after, a car wreck left their sons paraplegic. Romney called and asked if they were available on Christmas Eve. Romney, his wife, and his sons arrived with a stereo and other gifts for the crippled boys. Romney offered to put them through college and supported them through numerous fundraisers. As their father told Kranish and Helman, “It wasn’t a one-time thing.”

Beyond generosity, Romney has demonstrated organizational leadership and personal courage while aiding others:

• Melissa Gay, Bain Capital partner Robert Gay’s daughter, vanished while visiting New York City in July 1996. Then-CEO Romney closed Bain’s Boston headquarters and jetted to Gotham to find the 14-year-old. Romney flew in his private-equity company’s 50 employees and transformed a Marriott Hotel into a command post. He consulted the NYPD and recruited private eyes. He dispatched staffers to enlist Bain’s business associates. Bain’s printer, R. R. Donnelly, produced 300,000 missing-person fliers. Bain’s CPAs at Price Waterhouse placed the handbills all over town. Duane Reade, a Bain-portfolio company, stuck leaflets in shopping bags at 52 local outlets.

Five days after Melissa disappeared, someone rang Bain’s tip line to ask about a reward. The NYPD traced the call to a New Jersey home, where a 17-year-old had, unbeknownst to his parents, hidden the disoriented and drugged child.

Romney’s focus and management saved Melissa. She now is a happily married mother who teaches fourth grade.

• Romney learned that a member of his church fractured his foot after tumbling from a ladder while trying to dislodge a hornet’s nest. As Philip Klein explained in the Washington Examiner, “Romney showed up and devised a way of removing it from the inside of the house.”

• A home once burst into flames near Romney’s residence. Kranish and Helman report that Romney “organized the gathered neighbors, and they began dashing into the house to rescue what they could: a desk, couches, books” until fire fighters arrived.

• The Romneys were vacationing in New Hampshire in 2003 when screams shook the Independence Day air. Some 900 feet from them, New Jersey’s Morrisey family and their leaky boat were sinking into Lake Winnipesaukee.

Romney’s sons Craig and Josh sped into the lake on a Jet Ski. “We tore out of there, and my dad hopped on the other Jet Ski and came out right after us,” Josh Romney told the Boston Herald. They found three men and three women bobbing in the water in barely buckled life vests. Massachusetts’s then-governor pulled the two younger women onto his three-seat Jet Ski, while his sons assisted their mother. They then whisked these women safely to shore, along with McKenzie, their Scottish Terrier. Meanwhile, the three men treaded water under the sons’ watchful eyes until Mitt made two more trips to rush them to dry land.

Previously, while spearheading the 2002 Olympics, Romney and his sons used a boat to rescue several kayakers as high winds slammed them onto rocks.

Why is the real Romney totally unlike the terrifying caricature that has haunted this campaign? Team Obama’s distortions and lies have conspired with Mitt Romney’s modesty to mask his good deeds. Instead, Romney fans should make these secrets famous.

greenhouse construction + rocket mass heater how to tutorial

greenhouse construction + rocket mass heater how to tutorial

Greenhouse construction with a rocket mas heater, including an excellent demonstration of the rocket mass heater sideways burn. The greenhouse construction class is taught by Ernie and Erica Wisner, featuring the rocket mass heater techniques of Ianto Evans (of cob cottage company fame). I cannot think of a better approach to greenhouse heating.

This is the first phase of building this greenhouse. The focus is on the steps of building the rocket mass heater.

This video has an excellent demonstration of the sideways burn - or fire burning sideways.

Since this will be an oehler style solar greenhouse, then it probably won't need much heat. But it will be a bonus. And the heated air could also be piped into the house.

A rockey mass heater is typically 10 times more efficient than a regular wood stove. And 20 times cleaner.

A mike oehler style greenhouse construction is probably the most efficient greenhouse known.

Japan nuke plant water worries rise

This Saturday May 7, 2011 file image from video footage released by Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) shows spent fuel storage pool of the Unit 4 reactor building at the crippled Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okuma town, Fukushima Prefecture, northeastern Japan.  (AP Photo/Tokyo Electric Power Co., File)

Japan's crippled nuclear power plant is struggling to find space to store tens of thousands of tons of highly contaminated water used to cool the broken reactors, the manager of the water treatment team said.

About 200,000 tons of radioactive water — enough to fill more than 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools — are being stored in hundreds of gigantic tanks built around the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant. Operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. has already chopped down trees to make room for more tanks and predicts the volume of water will more than triple within three years, mainly because ground water is leaking into damaged reactor buildings.

Putting It Into Perspective: One Week of QE 3 in Minimum Wage Jobs - Infographic

For perspective purposes, above is a crate supporting $100MM in cash.

The graphic below then shows how many minimum wage jobs this $100 million could fund (labor supply and demand and other "practical" stuff aside). In short, it takes 3500 minimum wage American workers one year to make $100 million.

So how many minimum wage jobs could one week, forget one month, of the current $40 billion in QE 3, prefund?

This much.

On This Date In 1929, The Black Thursday Selling Has Begun

Last week, the misty eyed reminiscences were recalling the 25th anniversary of Black Monday. Today, we look even further back. 83 years back to be precise to this date in hallowed antiquity, when in 1929 the selling had officially begun, with what would ultimately culminate as the Great Crash. Cue Art Cashin: "on this Thursday morning, the market opened nervous but relatively steady. Within the first half hour, prices began to fade and the tape began to run late. By noon the tape was nearly an hour and-a-half late in reporting transactions in a market that had opened only two hours before. To speed the reporting digits were deleted and so "Radio" which had opened at 68 3/4 now showed on the tape at 8 3/4. But prices were moving so fast that the price was not 58 3/4 but 48 3/4 on its way to 48 1/4 before it would bottom in the afternoon at 44 1/2. To avoid confusion the Exchange published flash prices of selected securities on the slower moving bond tape." By early afternoon the cascade of prices caused an emergency meeting at the offices of J.P. Morgan across the street from the Exchange...."


The World Is Moving Closer To A Full-Blown Currency War Just Like The Great Depression of The 1930s

IMF efforts to intervene in the global currency war just struck out, according to breaking news from the AP.

The annual meeting in DC ended with no compromise or resolution, only a communique that pledged to “deepen” its work in the area of currency movements, including conducting studies on the issue.

This note essentially papered-over sharp differences between China and the US, according to the AP.

Here are some of the punches thrown earlier:

Deadly 2011 earthquake linked to groundwater extraction

An earthquake that killed nine people in Spain last year may have been triggered by decades of pumping water from a nearby natural underground reservoir, suggesting human activities played a role in moving Earth's crust, scientists reported on Sunday.

The study published in the journal Nature Geoscience centered on the May 11, 2011, quake in the southern Spanish town of Lorca. In addition to the nine deaths, this relatively modest earthquake of magnitude 5.1 damaged numerous buildings in Lorca, an agricultural center.

The study's lead author, Pablo Gonzalez of the University of Western Ontario, said he and his colleagues reckoned that the quake was related to a drop in the level of groundwater in a local aquifer, which can create pressure at the Earth's surface.

To test that theory, they used satellite data to see how the terrain was deformed by the earthquake, and found that it correlated to changes in the Earth's crust caused by a 273-yard (250-metre) drop in the natural groundwater level over the last five decades due to groundwater extraction.

Their findings suggest that human-induced stress on faults like the one near Lorca, known as the Alhama de Murcia Fault, can not only cause an earthquake but also influence how far the fault will slip as a result.

The groundwater was tapped by deeper and deeper wells to irrigate fruits and vegetables and provide water for livestock.


DARPA Reveals HAARP Plans For 2013


FY 2012 Plans:

- Conduct comprehensive HAARP-ULF experiments to study the onset of noise under a variety of space-weather conditions.

- Conduct a series of experiments to inject VLF waves into artificial ducts.

- Develop, implement and test a continuously-operational, extensive array of instruments which will measure all atmospheric and electromagnetic components of tropospheric lightning and correlate this phenomenon with various ionospheric events.

- Deploy balloons into thunderstorms to make in-situ electric field, X-ray and gamma-ray measurements.

- Develop and deploy a constellation of receivers to study the radio emissions generated by lightning and associated ionospheric events.

FY 2013 Plans: 

- Conduct numerical studies of ion dynamics caused by ULF, and of VLF wave propagation through the ionosphere inside density ducts created by artificial heating.

- Experimentally attempt 3-D observations of HF-induced plasma structures and potentially determine relative HF power absorption for different altitudes, frequencies and geophysical conditions.

- Experimentally quantify the impact of triggered lightning on properties of natural lightning (including the emission of gamma rays, X-rays, UV, VNIR/SWIR, RF,VLF/ULF) and on the properties of ionospheric phenomena (elves, sprites, whistlers, etc.).

- Experimentally quantify the impact of tropospheric lightning (both triggered and natural) and its ionospheric components on the conductivity of the ionosphere and the resultant scattering of sub-ionospherically-propagating VLF signals.

- Experimentally quantify the impact of CIDs on lightning propagation as well as their potential contribution to the production of very large blue jets

Reloading in the Living Room

Rather than a drudgery, reloading became an anticipated hobby.  .308/7.62x51, 45ACP, 45 Colt (also known by the slang "long colt", given to it by the soldiers of the day so not to confuse it with .45 Smith & Wesson (a shorter cartridge), and 300 Winchester Magnum soon joined the 9mm and .223.  Our home became a regular ammunition factory.  It wasn't the least bit unusual to come home to the gentle hum of the case cleaner putting the final shine on a load of dirty brass.


While you're in the living room, why not do a little redecorating?

Tsunami debris washed from Japan to Oregon

It had initially been estimated the tsunami debris would hit land on the west coast of North America in 2013 but items started washing up in April this year, beaching in Alaska, British Columbia, Washington and Oregon. They are just starting to reach California now.

In Oregon, 32 large bins have been placed along the coast as tsunami rubbish drop-off points.

Sandy Hayden, who lives in the nearby fishing town of Newport, says the debris-clearing volunteers are sensitive to what the debris is.

"It's a reminder of what happened, so it's not just trash. It was people's belongings and people's livelihoods and people's homes," she says.

More than 15,000 people died in the tsunami. The images of whole villages being dragged into the ocean remain vivid in the minds of anyone who saw them.

Full Obama/Romney Roast Speeches from Al Smith Dinner

 [Because it's time we all laughed about this election. - c]

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney poked fun at himself and at President Barack Obama, telling a white tie and gown crowd at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner in New York City on Thursday that, "it's nice to finally relax and wear what Anne and I wear around the house." Here are his five best zingers:

5. "I was actually hoping the president would bring Joe Biden along this evening. He'll laugh at anything."

4. "We're down to the final months of the president's term ... You have to wonder what [Obama is] thinking: So little time, so much to redistribute."

3. Romney quipped that St. Peter's skeptics told him, "If you’ve got a church, you didn’t build that."

2. He spelled out how the media will cover the dinner: "Obama embraced by Catholics, Romney dines with rich people."

1. "In keeping with the 'Sesame Street' theme, the president's remarks are brought to you tonight by the letter O and the number 16 trillion."

After Mitt Romney's address, Obama had his turn to speak. In keeping with the theme of the traditional event, where candidates make fun of themselves and their opponent ahead of the election, Obama delivered the jokes, but his were more often directed at himself — and especially at his performance in the first debate — than at his opponent. Here's a rundown of his best jokes from the event:

5. "Everyone please take your seats. Otherwise Clint Eastwood will yell at them."
4. Obama admitted he had more energy in the second debate: "I felt really well rested after the nice, long nap I had in the first debate."
3. "It seems like this race has dragged on forever, but Paul Ryan assured me that we've only been running for two hours and 50-something minutes.”
2. About the first debate being on his wedding anniversary: "I learned that there are worse things that can happen to you on your anniversary than forgetting to buy a gift."
1. After his foreign trip in 2008 Obama said, "I was attacked for being a celebrity because I was so popular overseas. I'm impressed with how Governor Romney avoided that problem."

Louisiana Sinkhole Could Perpetuate Mega New Madrid Quake

Bayou Corne sinkhole distance from community. - Click map to enlarge.

Over the years they have been filling a nearby salt dome (about 2,000 feet from the sinkhole) in Assumption, Parish, Louisiana with radioactive waste and 1.5 million barrels of liquid Butane. If this sinkhole continues to devour land and trees in this area, it may eventually breach this storage area releasing not only toxic radiation into the environment, but also butane which will then become exposed to the air above. All it would take then would be the spark from a car ignition or some other source of fire to set in motion an explosion which some suggest could be equivalent to about 100 nuclear bombs similar to those used on Nagasaki or Hiroshima, in Japan. As bad as all of that would be, there is something even worse that could come from this.

Assumption, Parish, Louisiana
An explosion of that magnitude would create a giant crater deep in the earth exposing this salt dome to the elements. Since this salt dome is also connected to the much larger Louann salt basin (map below), that means water from the bayou will trickle down and quickly become a torrent of water to dissolve the salt in areas covering 5 states, up to a mile thick. As the salt dome looses integrity, all of those deep oil wells will become funnels to either blow out or pull more water into the cavity. When that finally collapses, ALL of Louisiana will sink into the Gulf of Mexico. Parts of Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida will also be underwater. The salt dome under the Texas gulf will also collapse, sending a huge tsunami tidal wave as far inland as the Balcones Escarpment. Cities like Houston and New Orleans will sink into the ocean, never to be seen again. Cities like Fort Worth, Dallas, Waco, Austin, and San Antonio will also be flooded, but might be restored as the tidal wave recedes.

The New Madrid fault and Mississippi river basin is being targeted with HAARP, frac tech drilling operations, and possibly other means (such as nuclear explosions). They are planning to create an earthquake in that region to split this nation with an inland sea from Chicago to New Orleans. It will not be an "act of God." I believe that this could happen very soon. -- gmoore49

[October 17, 2012 - HAARP activity monitoring stations are back online, with the exception of the Portland, Oregon station. This station has been down for over a week and we are looking into the reason now. Strong signals continue across the Eastern United States, with the Western United States seeing nothing.]
