‘UFO’ sightings above crop circle fields

August 31, 2011 Comments off

AFTER the crop circle has come the almost obligatory UFO sighting.

This spectacular formation appeared overnight on July 28 in a field at West Woodhay.
It immediately attracted hundreds of sightseers and simultaneously earned the ire of landowner Harry Henderson, who dismissed it as the work of trespassers.

But even those artists who lay claim to some of the designs that appear in the fields each year have seen strange lights associated with the formations.

Now Newbury businesswoman Bonni Southey has reported unexplained light phenomena after she decided to visit the area.
She said: “We were having a look to see if the crop circle was still there. Looking across to the horizon above and to the right of the crop circle formation we saw first one bright, static light, which then disappeared and re-appeared again about two miles away in a matter of seconds.

“It hovered there for a couple of minutes and a second light slowly appeared next to it, and then a third. We watched these for quite a while – about 15 minutes – and then decided to try and get closer to them, driving over towards Ashmansworth. We then lost them geographically, or they disappeared completely.”

Ms Southey, who runs Holistic Family Health in Newbury, added: “We couldn’t determine their shape but they looked elongated and had a twinkling appearance – definitely not stars, planes or helicopters. There was no noise, but they kept fading and then re-appearing, sometimes in the same place and at other times a distance from where they had faded.”

Those who oppose a purely mundane explanation for at least some of the designs point to intricate ‘weaving’ of the cereal; to bent but unbroken stalks even in brittle crops, to apparent changes at the cellular level and to the fact that in 1991 an intricate design appeared outside the then Prime Minister John Major’s country residence, despite the fact that the field is a maximum security zone patrolled 24-hours a day.

The West Woodhay formation, dubbed the cosmic serpent by enthusiasts, spans 11 tractor tram lines and is one of the largest ever seen in the UK.

Last month Physics World magazine speculated that the designs are possibly created using microwaves generated by a device called a magnetron, directed by GPS satellite. – Newbury Today

Crop circles appear in Northumberland

August 31, 2011 Comments off

SUSPECT markings in a field in Northumberland are causing a stir with villagers, motorists – and one irate landowner.

People driving between Alnwick and Alnmouth are being treated to the unusual sight of four vast crop circles which have appeared in middle of a wheat field off the A1068.

The spectacle has been causing people to pull over and make special trips out to the remote location just so they can study the markings, which have appeared in the past two weeks close to Alndyke Farm.

One villager said: “It was Sunday when I drove past and first saw them.

“Approaching the field they’re visible from quite some distance from the road and there’s been lots of people pulling over to go and see them.

“It’s caused a stir among people living in the area, it’s not something you see every day in places like Northumberland. It is normally places like Wiltshire where you hear about sightings of crop circles, not here.

“RAF Boulmer is just nearby and I’ve heard the helicopters overhead so assume they’re aware of them.

“The largest circle must be more than eight metres wide. Even if it’s just the work of people after the pubs have shut, it’s still pretty impressive to see.” – Journal Live

Oklahoma, Texas Wildfires Destroy Dozens of Homes

August 31, 2011 Comments off

Hundreds of people in Texas and Oklahoma are fleeing their homes today as fast-burning wildfires, which have already destroyed more than 25 homes, burn throughout the neighboring states.

A fire fueled by dry and windy conditions broke out in Oklahoma City Tuesday, consuming more than 1,500 acres of a heavily wooded section of the city, fire officials told the Associated Press.

The fire forced hundreds of residents to evacuate, quickly destroyed 10 to 12 homes and left more than 7,000 homes and businesses in the area without power Tuesday as utility poles went up in a blaze.

Two injuries were reported, including a woman who was overcome by smoke and a firefighter who was treated for what may have been heat exhaustion, fire department officials said.

Air tankers and helicopters were brought in to help fight the fires, which had been largely contained by Tuesday night. The exact cause of the blaze has not been determined.

In Texas, firefighters worked through the night Tuesday to make progress on a fast-moving blaze in the state’s northern section that has already destroyed at least 25 homes in the resort community of Possum Kingdom Lake, about 75 miles west of Fort Worth.

“There are burned foundations all around here,” Jim Douglas of ABC affiliate WFAA-TV reported Tuesday from inside the fire zone . “These apartments are clearly going to go to the ground. Volunteer firefighters are trying to save those homes.”

The fire began early in the day Tuesday and had spread to an estimated 7,500 acres in Palo Pinto County by late Tuesday night, Texas Forest Service spokesman John Nichols told WFAA.

The fire comes just four months after massive blazes in roughly the same area scorched hundreds of thousands of acres and destroyed 160 homes.

Just as in Oklahoma, the exact cause of the blaze in Texas is not yet known. – ABC News

Revelation 9:18 “A third of the human race was killed by these three plagues—by the fire, the smoke, and the sulfur that came from their mouths.”

A third of the human race is slated for destruction during this tribulation period. They die from three plagues. Fire, its smoke, and sulfur. Children, the fire comes forth from volcanic activity. The sulfur is spewed forth from the volcanoes that will soon take their toll on a third of mankind by causing three unified plagues in the form of fire, toxic smoke, and heated sulfur.

Katia Expected to Become Hurricane

August 30, 2011 Comments off

Tropical Storm Katia may grow into a hurricane in the next two days as it moves west-northwest through the mid-Atlantic Ocean, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.

The storm’s winds increased to 45 miles (72 kilometers) per hour from 40 mph earlier today as it churned across the Atlantic about 630 miles west-southwest of Cape Verde, according to a center advisory issued at about 11 a.m. New York time.

“Continued gradual strengthening is forecast and Katia is expected to become a hurricane by late Wednesday or early Thursday,” the center said. Its current track and intensity forecasts have the storm growing into a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson five-step scale.

Computer forecast models suggest Katia will turn into the Northern Atlantic, a maneuver meteorologists refer to as recurving. The move would mean Katia would miss the U.S., which was struck last weekend by Hurricane Irene, a storm that killed at least 40, cut power to 8 million homes and businesses and caused an estimated $2.6 billion in damage.

“Katia is way, way, way out there,” said Tom Downs, a meteorologist with Weather 2000 Inc. in New York. “It is premature to discuss where it is going, but things suggest it will recurve. Five days from now we will have a better idea.”

Downs said the key will be if Katia drifts to the northwest as it moves across the ocean. Such a track would suggest the storm would eventually take a turn and miss the U.S., he said. A more westerly track might mean trouble, he said. – Bloomburg

Texas, and some other key targets are in line for a wave of upheaval. This month is the 8th month of this year. The 8 represents Yahweh as Infinity. She will close this month out with devastation.

Bird Flu Back Again, U.N. Agency Warns

August 30, 2011 1 comment

A new vaccine-resistant strain of avian H5N1 influenza has begun circulating in poultry flocks in Vietnam and China, posing “unpredictable risks to human health,” the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) warned on Monday.

“In Vietnam, which suspended its springtime poultry vaccination campaign this year, most of the northern and central parts of the country — where H5N1 is endemic — have been invaded by the new virus strain, known as H5N1-,” the FAO said in a statement.

No cases of human infection with the novel strain have yet reported by the FAO or its sister group, the World Health Organization. Vietnam has remained free of human infections with any avian H5N1 strains this year, according to WHO.

The FAO indicated that Vietnam’s veterinary services had been alerted to the threat and the county is “reportedly considering a novel, targeted vaccination campaign this fall.”

The new strain is “apparently able to sidestep the defenses provided by existing [poultry] vaccines,” the agency said.

The ongoing H5N1 flu virus epidemic, which was first detected in 2003 when humans began falling ill and dying, has affected wild birds as well as domestic poultry. That has aided the disease’s spread out of eastern Asia, and its reintroduction in areas where it was thought to have been eradicated.

The epidemic in bird flocks peaked in 2006 and hit a low in 2008 after aggressive poultry slaughters in affected countries.

But the FAO indicated that poultry infections have been rising again. It said nearly 800 outbreaks had been identified since January 2010, compared with about 300 in 2008.

Recent poultry infections have been spotted in Israel, the Palestinian territories, Romania, and Bulgaria.

The FAO’s chief veterinary officer, Juan Lubroth, said the H5N1 virus was most entrenched in Egypt, Indonesia, China, Bangladesh, India, and Vietnam.

Most recent human H5N1 infections have been in Egypt, with another small outbreak under way in Cambodia, according to WHO.

A total of 49 human infections and 25 deaths have been confirmed in 2011, with roughly half in Egypt.

Since 2003, the WHO’s human case count worldwide now stands at 565, with 331 deaths. – MedPageToday

Viruses are on the rise. Stay tuned for more to come.

Hospitals will become overwhelmed by the sheer number of people that are infected. Boiling water is still the best defense against water born diseases, and should also be boiled to bathe with. People living in flooded areas should follow this precaution.

The animal kingdom will also suffer from the effects. Those with pets in the infected areas should boil their drinking water also. Pets that are permitted free range will become infected. Livestock will also be at risk from the new strains of bacteria that are in the toxic brew if permitted to drink the tainted water.

The Antijaboks have done their work. You are now forewarned of what to expect.

Astronauts may evacuate space station in November

August 30, 2011 2 comments

In the wake of a Russian rocket failure, NASA is considering evacuating the crew of the International Space Station later this year. The unprecedented move would mark the first time in more than 10 years that the orbiting outpost has gone unmanned.

The space station evacuation is one possibility following the failure of the unmanned Russian supply spacecraft just after its Aug. 24 launch — a surprise given the reliable track record of its workhorse Soyuz rocket. The vehicle’s Progress 44 cargo craft, and its 2.9 tons of supplies bound for the International Space Station, crashed in Siberia.

An investigation into the cause of the failure is under way, but until the issue is resolved NASA and its Russian partners are delaying upcoming launches to crews and cargo to the space station. The Soyuz rockets used to launch Progress vehicles are similar to ones used to launch crews into orbit, station managers said.

So if a root cause isn’t found quickly, they may have to ground manned Soyuz rockets for the time being, forcing the space agencies to leave the $100 billion orbiting laboratory unmanned for the first time since 2001.

“The focus of the entire program, and in particular our Russian colleagues, is to determine the cause of the anomaly and to resolve it and to get back to flying safely,” said Mike Suffredini, NASA’s space station program manager, during a briefing today (Aug. 29). “We’ll focus on keeping the crews safe. Our next focus is to try to keep the ISS manned.”

Only once before, after the 2003 space shuttle Columbia disaster, which destroyed that orbiter and its crew, did NASA consider evacuating the International Space Station — a process agency officials call “de-manning.” In that case, though, managers decided to continue sending crews to the station on Soyuz rockets until the shuttle was ready to fly again.

The space station was designed to be able to operate autonomously, without crew onboard, if it needs to.

“If we have to de-man ISS, we do certainly have a safe way to do that as well,” Suffredini said. “We’ll try to prevent that if we can.”

The largest risk of evacuating the station is the possibility that some major component could break, or a significant anomaly could occur, and no astronauts would be available on orbit to fix it.

“There is a greater risk of losing ISS when it’s unmanned than if it were manned,” Suffredini said. “That’s why we made our decision after the Columbia accident to keep it manned, because the risk is not insignificant.”

To de-man the space station would require no extraordinary preparations on the part of the six spaceflyers currently living aboard the ISS.-

Job 24:2 The wicked displace boundary markers. They steal a flock and provide pasture for [it].

The International Space Station and those aboard are doomed. Yahweh is about to clear Her heavens of all intruders.

Is climate change making us crazy?

August 30, 2011 1 comment

A new report warns that droughts and floods can fuel severe mental-health problems like anxiety, depression, and even suicide.

Scientists worldwide are forecasting severe drought, unprecedented flooding, and scorching heat waves as a result of climate change. One thing that’s often overlooked in these discussions, however, is the effect that climate change may have on our mental health. But researchers in Australia have just published a reportA Climate of Suffering: The Real Cost of Living with Inaction on Climate Change, that gives us some new clues. Here, a brief guide to this research:

How could climate change affect our sanity? 
First, natural disasters like hurricanes and floods have a profound impact on individual suffering. As a result of these disasters, as many as one in five people could suffer from anxiety, depression, suicide, domestic violence, or substance abuse, say the report’s authors. Months after tropical cyclone Larry struck Australia in 2006, for example, more than one in 10 primary school children reported symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And in some rural Australian communities, the suicide rate has jumped by 8 percent since a massive drought took hold several years ago.

What other impacts are expected?
For years-long disasters, researchers have observed the long-term collapse of community solidarity. For instance, during and after events like the prolonged drought that has gripped Australia for more than a decade, there’s “a breakdown of social cohesion caused by loss of work and associated stability,” says Erik Jensen in the Sydney Morning Herald.

Who is most vulnerable to these problems?
Children are particularly susceptible to mental health issues like pre-disaster anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. And the long-term mental health effects of climate change are likely to be felt strongest inpoorer countries and in rural areas within industrialized nations, the study finds, since these places have the least access to mental health services.

Aren’t natural disasters like hurricanes and droughts normal?
Yes, but not with the intensity and frequency many areas of the world are now seeing. ”While cyclones, drought, bushfires [wildfires], and floods are all a normal part of Australian life, there is no doubt our climate is changing,” say the report’s authors. ”For instance, the intensity and frequency of bushfires is greater. This is a ‘new normal’, for which the past provides little guidance.” – The Week

Yes, the climate is changing – but it’s at the same time much more than just “climate change”, as many would hope and expect us to believe. Extreme weather has become the norm because we are currently in the Tribulation, and have been now for several years. And Yahweh, who is also Mother Nature, delivers Her messages via Her nature. We are a world under judgment – every nation on the planet – and Yahweh will continue to deliver Her wrath until the time Armageddon begins. Father is moving this world of people towards all out anarchy as the Wrath grows near for execution of His vengeance upon those that will be left behind in this world.

Market crash ‘could hit within weeks’, warn bankers

August 29, 2011 1 comment

A more severe crash than the one triggered by the collapse of Lehman Brothers could be on the way, according to alarm signals in the credit markets.

Insurance on the debt of several major European banks has now hit historic levels, higher even than those recorded during financial crisis caused by the US financial group’s implosion nearly three years ago.

Credit default swaps on the bonds of Royal Bank of Scotland, BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank and Intesa Sanpaolo, among others, flashed warning signals on Wednesday. Credit default swaps (CDS) on RBS were trading at 343.54 basis points, meaning the annual cost to insure £10m of the state-backed lender’s bonds against default is now £343,540.

The cost of insuring RBS bonds is now higher than before the taxpayer was forced to step in and rescue the bank in October 2008, and shows the recent dramatic downturn in sentiment among credit investors towards banks.

“The problem is a shortage of liquidity – that is what is causing the problems with the banks. It feels exactly as it felt in 2008,” said one senior London-based bank executive.

“I think we are heading for a market shock in September or October that will match anything we have ever seen before,” said a senior credit banker at a major European bank.

Despite this, bank shares rebounded on Wednesday, showing the growing disconnect between equity and credit investors. RBS closed up 9pc at 21.87p, while Barclays put on 3pc to 149.6p despite credit default swaps on the bank hitting a 12-month high. This mirrored the US trend, with Bank of America shares up 10pc in late Wall Street trade after a hitting a 12-month low on Tuesday over fears that it might have to raise as much as $200bn (£121bn). As with the European banks, the rebound in the share price was not reflected in the credit markets, where its CDS reached a 12-month high of 384.42 basis points.

European stock markets joined in the rally. The FTSE closed up 1.5pc at 5,206 on hopes the chance of a global recession had diminished. European shares hit a one-week high, with Germany’s DAX closing up 2.7pc and France’s CAC 1.8pc higher. The Dow Jones index edged higher on strong durable goods orders data as markets began to accept that the US Federal Reserve is unlikely to signal fresh stimulus at Jackson Hole this Friday. –

Satan is desperately trying to save his beast. But no salvation will come for the United States. The financial crisis will worsen. All plans conceived will fail. The economy will go down in ruins. The government will take aim on the religious community to try and gain its wealth from the reserves of the churches, but all will fail as the debt ratio climbs and the economy continues to shrink into oblivion. Nothing can change this from happening. It’s Father’s will. And because Father began the economic fall with Satan’s prized beast it will continue to quake a path of economic failures around the globe. It will be a domino toppling effect. Satan will be forced to consider the restructuring of the monetary system with the European Union leading the way. As the image of the beast rises to help end the worldwide crisis, the United States will sanction its authority.

Revelation 13:15 “He was permitted to give a spirit to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”

Those that resist the rise of the image of the beast will be executed for resistance to the new authority. There will be a one world currency. There will be a removal of Christianity.

Heavy rains trigger landslide in Uganda- 23 dead

August 29, 2011 Comments off

A massive landslide swallowed homes in eastern Uganda early Monday, killing at least 23 people, the Red Cross said. Torrential rains triggered the landslide, Red Cross spokeswoman Catherine Ntabadde said by phone from the scene. Two people have been rescued, but the death toll is expected to rise as rescue crews scour through the site in Bulambuli district. Bulambuli district is about 300 kilometers northeast of the capital, Kampala. It occurred in the same region where a landslide killed at least 87 last year near Mount Elgon, on the Kenya-Uganda border. Heavy rain, hilly terrain and inadequate equipment slowed efforts to recover hundreds of people buried last year. Flooding also destroyed roads and washed away bridges in the region at the time. -CNN

The death toll of humankind will steadily mount from unnatural causes. The source of this happening to the greatest number comes from the hand of Father. Earthquakes. Tornadoes. Sheer wind, hail and lightning. Volcanic eruptions. Hurricanes, Tsunami and tidal waves. All of Father’s arsenal is now aimed at this planet’s inhabitants.

It is Father as nature’s source of destruction and as Moses did centuries ago, we make you aware that Father is angry.

Father’s holy angels are pouring out the bowls of wrath on an evil world of people. Keep count of how many more are perishing by Father’s hand, and those dying from Satan’s hand in causing violence throughout this planet, just as he did before the global flood.

As time moves on the numbers Father executes will be evident by those that are soon to perish by the emptying of more wrath from the bowls. You must come to understand that the destruction is coming from Father. It is a final warning during the tribulation period before the door closes and the cup of wrath is administered.

If you believe it is only nature that is bringing devastation, then you need to understand who nature is a part of, and who uses it to bring forth Her will. The bowls of wrath represent nature at its deadliest. The cup of wrath represents execution by holy angelic warriors.

4.9 earthquake strikes near site of Japan’s ancient super-volcano

August 29, 2011 Comments off

Anytime a moderate earthquake strikes near a super-volcano, we take note. A 4.9 magnitude earthquake has struck south of the ancient super-volcanic Aira Caldera located in Kyushu, Japan. Aira Caldera (ja:姶良カルデラ Aira-Karudera) is a gigantic volcanic caldera in the south of the island of Kyūshū, Japan. According to geologists, the caldera was believed to have been created by a massive super eruption about 22,000 years ago. Eruption of voluminous pyroclastic flows accompanied the formation of the 17 × 23 km-wide Aira caldera, at the eruption 22,000 years ago. Together with a large pumice fall, these amounted to more than 400 km3 of tephra which classified the eruption as VEI 7, which is next to the highest force on the Volcano Explosivity Index. The Sakurajima volcano is situated within the Aira caldera and is one of the most active volcanoes in Japan. A strombolian eruption or lava bomb explosion occurred at Sakurajima and may be related to the earthquake. –The Extinction Protocol

A single volcano plumes out more pollution than all of the fossil fuel powered vehicles, and the so-called pollution factories such as the old steel mills that made America strong in its hay day. If mankind followed natures cycles, volcanoes would not produce something contrary to mankind’s needs. What is considered as pollution to the present day structure of Society on earth would be beneficial, because it is part of the natural cycle. But mankind has altered its path from the original Divine Plan. 

El Hierro Earthquake Count Exceeds 4200

August 29, 2011 Comments off

The number of daily earthquakes recorded on the smallest of the Canary Islands (Spain), El Hierro, has increased considerably in recent days. The Instituto Volcanologico de Canarias has also reported a 1cm inflation over part of the island’s volcano following on from GPS analysis.

The total number of tremors recorded during the past five weeks has now exceeded 4200, according to the Instituto Geografico Nacional (IGN).

The majority of the earth tremors range between 1 and 3 magnitude. More than 431 earthquakes, including one measuring 3.5 magnitude on the Richter Scale, were recorded on Monday (22 August) alone.

The vast majority of the tremors have been recorded in the northwest of the 278.5-square-kilometre island at El Golfo, the location of a massive landslide that created a 100-metre high tsunami almost 50,000 years ago.

The earthquake swarm, prompted the Canary Islands Government to convene the first ever meeting on 22 July of the Steering Committee and Volcanic Monitoring, reflected in the Specific Plan Protection Civil and Emergency for Volcanic Risk, given what it described “the significant increase in seismic activity”. The Committee met again on Friday 29 July to discuss the low magnitude seismic activity. It reported that it had stepped up its seismic monitoring operations to identify the source of the earthquakes.

It remains unclear if the unprecedented seismic activity on El Hierro is a precursor to a possible future increase in earthquake or volcanic activity.  However, the latest surge in recorded earthquakes and the inflation of the volcano could indicate magma rising underneath El Hierro.

According to the Global Volcanism Program, the massive Hierro shield volcano is truncated by a large NW-facing escarpment, seen here from the east, which formed as a result of gravitational collapse of the volcano. The steep-sided 1500-m-high scarp towers above a low lava platform bordering 12-km-wide El Golfo Bay, which is barely visible at the extreme left. Holocene cones and flows are found both on the outer flanks and in the El Golfo depression. The latest eruption, during the 18th century, produced a lava flow from a cinder cone on the NW side of El Golfo. – Irish Weather Online

Soon, many will question what is causing so much revolt in nature, but some of Dawn Lucifer’s human agents will try to sooth the public awareness by saying it is the earth going through a recycling stage that will eventually even itself out. For many, they will take no notice of the truth of what is about to befall them any more than they did in Noah’s pre-flood era, but all will be infuriated as the world they once knew is no longer hospitable.

Psalm 147:17 “He throws His hailstones like crumbs. Who can withstand His cold?” Who can withstand anything Father decides to throw evil mankind’s way? No one.

Romans 8:7 “For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so.”

The “mind-set of the flesh” but not that of a true spiritual believer who bridles his or her body and does not permit it to rule over their spiritual mind-set. But since the flesh currently tainted by imperfection cannot inherit the Kingdom of Christ Jesus, it is left behind at the rapture, because as Father says, She is making all things new.

FEMA almost out of disaster funds

August 29, 2011 Comments off

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The Federal Disaster Relief Fund, the pot of money used to help communities and individuals hit by disasters, is nearly depleted. That’s bad news for victims of both Hurricane Irene and other disasters like the tornadoes that hit earlier this year.

Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate said Monday that the agency’s fund has fallen to less than $800 million. With less that $1 billion on hand, the agency is only authorized to pay for emergency repairs. That means that long-term projects, like rebuilding roads, schools and other damaged structures in the tornado-ravaged southeastern states and Joplin, Mo., will have to wait.

While individuals eligible for assistance from those earlier storms will continue to get their checks, FEMA will put other spending on hold in order to have enough cash on hand for new emergencies likeHurricane Irene.

Fugate said he hopes to resume funding those long-term projects at some point, but that Congress will have to appropriate additional funds for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 in order to do so.

He added that he’s not even sure that the disaster fund has enough money to cover all the costs that will be associated with Hurricane Irene, which caused flooding and other damage in a heavily-populated area stretching from North Carolina to Vermont over the weekend.

“Don’t know,” he responded when asked if there was enough money to cover the latest storm damage. “What we’ve been working on will take care of quite a few folks. But as I testified back earlier this year…if we had any significant disasters between now and the end of the fiscal year, it would likely require additional funds.”

So far, FEMA has agreed to help state and local governments pay for preparations for Irene as well as for some immediate recovery efforts. But it has not yet authorized payments to individual victims of the storm.

Fugate couldn’t estimate how much FEMA has already spent on Irene, or what those costs will grow to.

The House has already passed an appropriations bill for the upcoming fiscal year for the Department of Homeland Security that includes an additional $1 billion for the disaster relief fund this fiscal year.

But that funding has yet to be passed by the Senate, and could end up being caught in the congressional gridlock over spending cuts and the deficit.

Several House Republicans issued a statement Saturday in advance of the storm criticizing the Democratic-controlled Senate and the Obama administration for their failure to act on the additional cash for FEMA, saying they had left the agency “running on fumes.”

“Even though the President himself said that ‘We are going to do everything we can to help these communities rebuild,’ the rhetoric has not matched reality and the Disaster Relief Fund is running out of money,” said Robert Aderholt, chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee. – CNN Money

Reported by this ministry, as informed by Yahweh’s holy family August 26th, 2011: This will be such a crushing for not only the loss of life, but a huge hit to the U.S. economy as no money will be available to rebuild what is about to topple and be brought asunder.

$45Billion Irene ‘One of Most Expensive Hurricanes’

August 28, 2011 1 comment

She was expected to wreak havoc on Manhattan, wrecking homes, flooding cars and toppling trees as she roared across the city.

But while Hurricane Irene did not strike New York with the ferocity many expected, the city has been dealt a major blow nonetheless – the huge cost of a weekend of anxious preparation away from work.

After hundreds of thousands fled Manhattan this weekend, Irene arrived last night as more of a heavy thunder storm than a devastating hurricane – an irony which will not be lost on the numerous business owners who shut up shop for fear of devastation.

University of Maryland professor Peter Morici said up to $45billion of damage has been caused on the East Coast, factoring in physical damage and the loss of two days of economic activity.

In the city, projected winds of 75mph hit at closer to 50mph and while streets in lower Manhattan briefly flooded, the water receded shortly afterwards.

In an afternoon press conference, mayor Michael Bloomberg announced that the earlier evacuation of hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers from their homes would be lifted by as early as 3pm.

As Irene looked set to batter Coney Island last night, there were widespread fears the winds would cause devastation to the historic town.

The promenade of wooden stalls on the beach, however, appear to have been relatively unharmed after the hurricane eased to a tropical storm.

Coney Island boardwalk landmarks like the red parachute drop tower, the Cyclone roller coaster, and Dino’s Wonder Wheel all appeared intact this morning.

The usually bustling fair ground and beach boardwalk were deserted as the storm hit but, while the town will suffer from the temporary lack of business, any fears of widespread damage appear not to have been lived up to.

Irene made landfall at Coney Island this morning -  the first time the eye of a cyclone has directly touched the five boroughs since 1893

He also declared the Staten Island ferry would reopen at 3pm and while further checks have to be performed on the subway system, some service may be restored by rush hour in the morning.

The mayor added that the emergency had ‘brought out the best in New Yorkers’ and noted that police had made 300 fewer arrests than usual during the evening of the storm – a surprise upshot of the dramatics.

While reassuring New Yorkers that the City would be working like usual by the morning, Mr Bloomberg warned commuters not to expect too much from a system which has still had to recover from a brief onslaught of rain and wind.

‘It’s going to be tough,’ he said. ‘You’re going to have a difficult commute in the morning’.

Speaking later in the afternoon, President Barack Obama added that he wanted ‘to underscore that the impact of the storm’ would be felt for a while.

Tomorrow will be tough for New Yorkers returning to work as days of inactivity have dealt the economy a serious blow.

It has been estimated that the storm will have cost the East Coast up to $45billion, according to Peter Morici, a professor at University of Maryland.

The prediction included $20 billion in damages and the accumulation of two days’ loss of economic activity. - Mail Online

A group of UFO formations were spotted by couple of New Yorkers in New York city on August 26, 2011, just a day before the arrival of Hurricane Irene.   The formations change from triangle shapes to Space craft shapes.  Very interesting UFO sighting comparing with many other sightings reported lately.  Witnesses were not sure what those lights were, but suspecting it is UFO.

Uploader’s Comment: While driving on August 26 at around 10:00 I looked in the air and saw a V shape pattern made up by 20 or so bright lights, when we passed we saw they were not stars and they begin to fly fly to the left of us. I pulled out my dads iphone and took some small video. The video you see is unedited.

Small tremors rattle central California

August 28, 2011 Comments off

A cluster of mild earthquakes rumbled early on Saturday near Pinnacles National Monument, site of an ancient volcano in central California, and were widely felt in and around the Monterrey Bay area. The largest of the tremors, measured at a magnitude of 4.6, struck shortly after midnight Friday local time just northwest of Pinnacles, which lies in the San Andreas seismic fault zone about 100 miles southeast of San Francisco Bay, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Quakes of that size cause noticeable shaking of furniture and some rattling noises, but there were no reports of damage or injuries from Saturday’s temblors, which were typical for the seismically active region. “It’s not uncommon to see clusters, or what we call swarms, of earthquakes in many places around California,” USGS spokeswoman Leslie Gordon said. The quake cluster near Pinnacles began at about 11 p.m. and numbered in the dozens. But only seven registered a magnitude 3.0 or higher as of noon on Saturday, USGS data showed. A National Park Service ranger reached by telephone at Pinnacles, known for its monolithic rock formations, spires and sheer-walled canyons, said the quakes were noticed but shrugged off by residents accustomed to such tremors. “Most of the residents here felt it, but we’re so used to having small earthquakes all the time that it was no big deal,” she said. A USGS mapping system that records citizen reports of where quakes are felt showed the largest of Sunday’s tremors was noticed as weak to light shaking throughout the Monterrey Bay region along a 200-mile-long corridor of central California. The California quake swarm occurred days after a rare 5.8 earthquake shook much of the U.S. East Coast on Tuesday, centered in Mineral, Virginia. That shock damaged the U.S. Capitol and Washington Monument and sent thousands of jittery residents and office workers out onto the streets. -Reuters

Another earthquake is in the making, and Satan has pulled his troops out of that battle to halt it. Now he is forced with choosing his battles more wisely. The LOZ are also working not only the fault-lines, but also some volcanoes that will set off a chain reaction of devastating events. Soon, the news commentators will questuion as to whether or not this entire planet is breaking apart.

Shoppers fight over bottled water, flashlights and lobster… How a city prepared for a very New York hurricane

August 27, 2011 Comments off

I knew something was amiss before I even left my apartment.

My flatmate has locked the front door, presumably in the fear that hurricane Irene would try the handle first before barging in.

He also pulled down the blind on the kitchen window, apparently in the belief that it would stop the 100mph gusts should the glass fail to do so.

‘We’ve got to be prepared,’ he said with a face fit for a funeral. ‘Who knows what might happen’.

I thought he was overreacting to the arrival of the storm in New York, but out on the streets I realised it was I who was out of step.

Inevitably the supermarkets became raw wounds of fear, with shoppers stocking up on what they saw as essential provisions to get them through the hard times ahead.

New York city officials had given explicit instructions that everyone should prepare a ‘Go bag’ in case of disaster containing bottled water and nonperishable food such as granola bars.

But in Gristides in 1st Avenue by lunchtime on Saturday the shelves had been cleared of frozen pizzas, pastries and potatoes with plenty of cereal bars to spare.

All of the mulitgrain pitta chips had been taken, although even the prospect of a hurricane was not enough to convince anyone to buy the Italian Harvest flavour.

One woman was carrying a shopping list which included soy sauce, crackers and cider.

At the very top she had written, with a star next to it: ‘Lobster’.

‘It’s not very practical, I know,’ she admitted, her cheeks glowing red with embarrassment.

Also in Gristides Giovanna Levy was doing some last minute shopping. Her basket contained tins of tuna, toothpaste and hot dogs.

She said: ‘This is the second supermarket we’ve been to.

‘We’re going to order in loads of food from restaurants and have it just sitting there ready to eat.

‘We’re not sure where we are going to stay yet. We were thinking about going to a hotel downtown but I don’t think we’re doing that now.’

I asked another lady in her early 20s how she was preparing for what could be the worst natural disaster in 26 years to hit New York.

‘I’ve left my air conditioning unit on all day today so my bedroom is nice and cool,’ she said.

‘If the power goes off it won’t work’. I told her: ‘It seems like a sensible precaution’, and she agreed, nodding her head.

Her boyfriend chipped in: ‘You can’t be too sure’.

Gracefully supermarket on 1st Avenue was closed but through the window you could see there  was no bread, only one Yucan gold potato but lots of butternut squash left on the shelves.

At Morton Williams supermarket on 23rd St Beth and Jeff Rooney had stocked up on bagels, cream cheese and peanut butter to see them through.

Mrs Rooney said: ‘We’re not really taking it that seriously. People are acting like there will never be any more food but the trucks will start running tomorrow or Monday.

‘It’s like Christmas, only worse’.

Shops which bragged about staying open 24 hours now looked foolish at best and suicidal at worst.

At the CVS on 23rd st staff had been told the store would close at 9pm on Saturday night and reopen at 10am on Sunday, when Irene was right overhead.

‘I don’t know how they expect us to get into work,’ a lady at the checkout said, referring to the closure of the entire New York transit system.

‘Maybe they’ll get us a flying carpet’.

Throughout Manhattan shop closures were widespread but utterly random.

On 1st Avenue the laundries were open but the bars were shut.

You could get a KFC but you couldn’t get a McDonald’s. You could buy computer games but you couldn’t get a coffee.

You couldn’t get your shoes repaired anywhere, and you definitely couldn’t go to the bank.

On 2nd Avenue you couldn’t even die – a sign on the door of the Andrett Funeral Home read: ‘ We are closed due to hurricane Irene’.

It added: ‘Sorry for the inconvenience’.

The predictable things had, of course, sold out. At Radioshack on 1st there were no digital clocks, radios and just a few batteries left.

At Walgreen’s by Union Square candles were in short supply, as were frozen pizzas again.

One man walked around with two bottles of Gatorade in his basket. An elderly gentleman was waiting in line clutching two bars of Lindt chocolate and four tins of sardines.

The hardware store close to my apartment had sold a number of foam guards which sit on top of air conditioning units to soften the noise of the rain falling onto them.

‘I don’t see the point of it,’ said David Rojas, who was working behind the counter at Town and Village Hardware. ‘I’d be more concerned about whether my building was going to stand up than the noise of the rain’.

At the best of times hearing other people’s conversations gives you an idea about what makes New York tick.

But in the new mood of subdued panic, they offered a chance to really see how people were planning ahead.

‘Is that Worcestershire sauce?’ a girl wearing wellington boots asked her friend in one store. ‘They haven’t got any. Damn. Let’s try somewhere else’.

Another woman scolded her husband as they crossed the road close to Union Square.

‘For God’s sakes Harold,’ she said, ‘We still don’t have the mint tea and we’re running out of time!’

Come on Irene…. – Mail Online

The name Irene is no mere coincidence. It is the operational code name of the LOZ members directing the course of that hurricane. This will be such a crushing for not only the loss of life, but a huge hit to the U.S. economy as no money will be available to rebuild what is about to topple and be brought asunder. Satan has directed nearly all of his demonic forces to scramble and try to force Irene off course. While he does this, watch what the other LOZ operational groups do else where. Satan’s troops cannot be everywhere at once. Another earthquake is in the making, and Satan has pulled his troops out of that battle to halt it. Now he is forced with choosing his battles more wisely. The LOZ are alsi working not only the fault-lines, but also some volcanoes that will set off a chain reaction of devastating events.

Huge Bubble Cloud over Beijing Skies Mystifies Observers

August 27, 2011 Comments off

Transcript:  And finally… it was quite a sight over the skies of Beijing Thursday. A mysterious bubble cloud of sorts caught the attention of many in the city. The seemingly unique phenomenon has become somewhat of a hit on the Internet.

Photos were posted online of a mysteriously huge bubble cloud over the skies of Beijing and surrounding areas Thursday, which raised concerns and discussions among netizens.

“At first, it’s relatively small and bright, the upper part is something like a semi-circle, a spherical ring of light, it’s obviously becoming bigger and bigger then.”

When the observation team set their instruments at the bubble, it gradually became bigger and thinner. The entire occurrence lasted for less than 15 minutes. Observers took pictures of the whole process and posted them online.

Staff members at the Beijing Planetarium believe it was the same phenomenon after an analysis of time and space.

“Of course people had a lot of discussions, personally I think it’s a kind of meteor or a phenomenon in terrestrial space.”

Experts say the bubble cloud was unlikely a natural phenomenon. Judging from the pictures, the bubble cloud was hundreds of miles away from observers in Beijing.

[Zhu Jin, Curator, Beijing Planetarium]:
“It must have been caused by human beings, not nature or other things like that.”

In less than one day more than 100 comments were posted about the unusual phenomenon. Many of those who commented said they had seen a similar bubble cloud in the provinces of Shenyang, Shanxi, and Zhejiang.

10,000 earthquakes in swarm reported on German-Czech border- magma on the move say geologists

August 27, 2011 1 comment

The Geophysical Institute, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic says it has recorded almost 10,000 earthquakes during the last three days in West Bohemia, a region located close to the Czech Republic’s western border with Germany. The earthquake swarm started late on Tuesday and continued through Friday. While many have gone unnoticed by the local population some of the larger tremors, including eight quakes exceeding 3 magnitude have been felt in the towns of Chemnitz, Karlovy Vary, Birch, and Luby. The most recent earthquake measured 3.6 magnitude on the Richter Scale and hit at 0645hrs GMT on Friday at a shallow depth of three miles. The quake epicentre was located 81 miles (129 km) NE of Nürnberg 82 miles (131 km) SW of Dresden, 90 miles (144 km) W of Praha, 128 miles (204 km) NW of Budejovice, 131 miles (210 km) NNW of Schärding, and 227 miles (364 km) NW of Wien. Commenting on the latest earthquake swarm, the Geophysical Institute, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic stated: “The activity started in the evening of 23 August and is almost continuous till now (26 August morning). Almost 10 000 events were recorded in total up to now. Already eight events M>3.0 and 200 M>2.0 occurred. The location of hypocenters directly below the NKC station, so it appears a new patch of the fault plane is being activated.” In recent years, scientists have noted an increase in the movement of magma towards the earth’s surface in the Cheb Basin, western Czech Republic. They say rising magma could be one of the causes of the earthquake swarms, which regularly occur in the Vogtland, North-West Bohemia, the Fichtelgebirge and the Upper Palatinate. The last earthquake swarm to occur before this week’s activity was in 2008. –IWO

1000 quakes in 4 days: The Germany Czech border area has been hit by an earthquake swarm with mainly very weak earthquakes; the strongest ones measuring 4.0 and 3.6. The earthquakes started their sequence on Tuesday. The earthquakes started their sequence on Tuesday. Cheb/ Vogtland is a seismically-active area where the seismographs did record a lot of activity (a lot of which cannot be felt by humans). The earthquake has been felt in a moderate area radius near a few dozen kilometers from hypocentra. Tremors felt the people in Karlovy Vary, Lower Zandov or Birch. Since Tuesday, more than 1,000 earthquakes were registered (yes, this is not an error as 99% of these quakes could only be measured with instruments and cannot be felt by humans). The epicenters are moving slowly to the northeast. A similar earthquake swarm was recorded three years ago. By Thursday evening, dozens of seismographs recorded aftershocks. Reported damage at the present magnitudes includes cracks in walls, fallen objects and occasionally a collapsed chimney. This occurs mostly in older brick houses. –The Earthquake Report

There will be no dull moments as everything will continue to culminate. Calamity atop calamity as the earth and all living things reels from the calamitous effects being heaped upon this evil generation. This month is the 8th month of this year. The 8 represents Yahweh as Infinity. She will close this month out with devastation.

Hurricane Irene Spawns Tornadoes

August 27, 2011 2 comments

As Hurricane Irene moved north, with its winds and torrents of rain, it caused tornadoes in at least four states, and officials warned they could be as dangerous as the hurricane itself.

Tornadoes were reported in New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.

Delaware’s Gov. Jack Markell said he believed a tornado tore through 17 homes near Lewes, Del., and off Rehoboth Beach, the National Weather Service reported a waterspout — essentially, a tornado out at sea. There were no reports of major injuries.

At least five homes in the Sandbridge area of Virginia Beach, Va., sustained major damage from a tornado, said Mary Hancock, a spokeswoman for the city, but the area had already been evacuated and there were no injuries reported. Several other homes in the area were less seriously damaged.

“The category of hurricane doesn’t explain all the risk,” Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate said. “Rainfall and tornadoes are not tied to the category of a storm … some of the most devastating floods have been from tropical storms.”

What do tornadoes have to do with hurricanes? A hurricane is a giant vortex of low presure sending wind and rain whipping around — but also drawing air in from other, dryer areas to fill the vacuum created by the storm. When cooler, dryer air collides with the muggy air of the hurricane, the conditions are ripe for funnel clouds to spin off in almost any direction.

While the tornadoes are much smaller than the hurricane itself, they can be considerably more intense. Their strength — and the amount of damage they can cause — is not related to the strength of the hurricane.

Americans most often hear about tornadoes in the Midwest and South, especially in the spring as cold air from Canada is pushed back by the growing warmth in the Gulf of Mexico. That formula makes for the largest number of tornadoes on earth. But meteorologists say they can happen anywhere on the planet — and in a hurricane, all bets are off. – ABC News

Thousands of fish die in Emporia park lake

August 26, 2011 Comments off

EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — A state biologist says decomposing leaves probably caused the deaths of thousands of fish in city lake in Emporia.

KVOE-AM reports ( ) the die-off happened over the weekend in the lake at Emporia’s Peter Pan Park. More than a thousand dead shad lined the shore on Sunday, with some carp and buffalo also found dead.

State Wildlife and Parks fisheries biologist Carson Cox says leaves that fell from surrounding leaves were decomposing on the lake bottom, reducing the oxygen. Cox says shad do poorly in low oxygen. Other fish survived by staying closer to the surface, where oxygen was higher.

Cox believes bass and bluegill are still plentiful in the lake. He says the state will have 600 adult catfish ready to go in October if the lake needs restocking. –

Genesis 1:26 “Then God said…, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”

Ecclesiastes 9:12 “For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net, or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time, as it suddenly falls on them.”

Mankind has proved itself to be in Satan’s image. Mankind has been revoked of any rule over the animal kingdom as the destroyer angel brings devastation to the wildlife as a preview of what mankind can expect to rain down upon itself and surface from the depths of a poisoned planet. The rain of dead fowl and sea life coming to the surface will reveal the stagnation of mankind’s own future fate. The curse coupled with plague is ever widening on this planet. Look beyond Arkansas children. Remain steadfast in your faith. Only a remnant will survive what has come in upon this planet.

Hurricane Irene Could Affect Millions Of People In The U.S.

August 26, 2011 2 comments

By MITCH WEISS, Associated Press

NAGS HEAD, N.C. — Hurricane Irene began lashing the East Coast with rain Friday ahead of a weekend of violent weather that was almost certain to heap punishment on a vast stretch of shoreline from the Carolinas to Massachusetts.

For hundreds of miles, people in the storm’s path headed inland, made last-minute preparations and monitored the hurricane’s every subtle movement. Irene had the potential to cause billions of dollars in damage all along a densely populated arc that included Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and beyond. At least 65 million people were in its projected track.

As the storm trudged toward northwest from the Bahamas, rain from its outer bands began falling along the North and South Carolina coast. Swells and 6- to 9-foot waves were reported along the Outer Banks. Winds were expected to pick up later. Thousands had already lost power as the fringes of the storm began raking the shore.

The hurricane warning was extended into the Chesapeake Bay as far as Drum Point, and existing warnings remained in effect from North Carolina to New Jersey. A hurricane watch was in effect even farther north and included Long Island, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, Mass.

Risks from Irene’s wrath were many: surging seas, drenching rains, flash floods and high winds. Craig Fugate had warned previously that this is one of the largest populations to be affected by one storm at one time. On Friday morning, he and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano pleaded with people to heed local officials’ warnings.

“Evacuation orders are key,” Fugate said. “People need to leave early, travel a safe distance, and get somewhere safe. All the preparation and planning will be in vain if people don’t heed those evacuation orders.”

President Barack Obama, who was vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard, is set to return to the White House on Saturday when the storm is expected to pass through the Washington area. He said all indications point to Irene being a historic hurricane.

“I cannot stress this highly enough, if you are in the projected path of this hurricane you have to take precautions now,” the president said.

Irene could also push crude oil prices higher if it disrupts refineries in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia, which produce nearly 8 percent of U.S. gasoline and diesel fuel. – Huffington Post

(Previously shared with our ministry in 2008) “Archangel Michael warned that the hurricanes in the United States will reach farther inland this year than in previous years. They will be some of the most devastating to have ever been unleashed. With them will come large tornadoes and hail that demolishes all within their path.”

The LOZ (Lions of Zion, Yahweh’s Elite Warriors) has been successful in that they have been primarily causing collateral damage verses the loss of life. Adding to the monetary loss of this country’s treasury. This being Satan’s throne of authority, the LOZ is nudging him toward his new seat of rulership as he realizes he cannot sustain this country due to the ever mounting debt. The infrastructure – aging bridges, buildings, dams, etc., this all is set for a crumbling-to-ground effect when the LOZ launches its campaign to tremor the fault lines in the USA. That will bring forth the final demise of the already debt ridden nation. They will continue to apply pressure to Satan”s new ruling authority, making it rough water for him to effectively serve as the Antichrist. His unwillingness to relinquish power over his prized child brings with it ramifications he did not expect.

More Cracks Found in Washington Monument

August 26, 2011 Comments off

An inspection of the Washington Monument Wednesday found more cracks in the pyramidion, the top section of structure, according to the National Parks Service.

At least three cracks are large enough to let daylight inside the monument. Debris also fell on the floors and in the stairwell.

A crack 4 feet long and an inch wide was found during a secondary inspection Tuesday evening, so NPS decided to keep it closed indefinitely while damage is assessed. A preliminary inspection of the Washington Monument had found it to be structurally sound, according to the NPS.

After more cracks were found Wednesday, NPS is bringing in two engineering firms with earthquake damage assessment expertise.

A team from Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates Inc. (WJE) will arrive Thursday to work with NPS structural engineers, historical architects and Tipping Mar Associates to assess the damage.

“We are bringing in WJE because of their experience not only with seismic issues, but with historic structures,” said Robert A. Vogel, Superintendent of the National Mall and Memorial Parks. “The Washington Monument is one of America’s most important landmarks, and we will do whatever it takes to ensure that it is restored completely and correctly.”

NPS is confident the monument will reopen, but it is too early to give an estimate, NPS spokesman Bill Line said. He emphasized customer safety. – NBC Washington

Did the D.C. earthquake today wake you up at the Capitol and Pentagon? Satan can spin his yarns about leaving his child behind, and he can continue to heavily guard the West Coast, but that won’t save the other targets that the LOZ are eyeing. And that was a minor shallow quake off a much larger quake headed for that region. The LOZ are working over time, and they are determined to meet the time-line by the end of this year for Satan’s Child’s fall.

Blistering Heat-Waves Continue

Balkans- people collapsing on the street, roads melting

Officials in the Balkans are trying to cope with a near-record heat wave as temperatures soar across much of eastern Europe, with wildfires raging and people fainting on the streets. Authorities in Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Albania issued heat warnings today for people to stay indoors and drink water to avoid hyperthermia. Doctors in Belgrade said emergency teams have received over 600 calls since Wednesday from residents feeling sick from the heat. “People are collapsing and falling on the streets,” said emergency clinic doctor Zeljko Bacevic. One of the hottest spots was in Montenegro, where temperatures in the past few days reached more than 41 deg C (106 Fahrenheit), prompting authorities to recommend working hours be cut to skip the midday heat. In Macedonia, authorities said people older than 60 and pregnant women should not go to work. In Bosnia, workers’ unions urged construction companies to pull their employees from open air construction sites. In the central Bosnian city of Mostar, temperatures soared to 45 deg C (113 F) on Wednesday as kids jumped on melting asphalt, leaving their footprints in the streets. “The only way to deal with this is in the river,” said Mostar high school student Semir Hebib. “I sleep on my balcony and in the morning I go and sit next to or in the Neretva River till the evening.” In the south of Bosnia, an increasing number of people are suffering from stomach infections, doctors said. “High temperatures are ideal for bacterial infections caused by the consumption of spoiled food,” said Doctor Dijana Mamic, the head of a hospital in the town of Livno. She said the town had over 50 cases this week. Montenegro and Albania are fighting several wildfires near their capitals and on the Adriatic Sea coastline, but no major injuries or damage has been reported. Meteorologists say the current temperatures in the Balkans are some 10 degrees Celsius higher that the average for this time of year. They add that the heat wave which has arrived from northern Africa is expected to last for several more days. –

Heat wave exacting toll on elderly in Milan- 10 deaths reported

A heat-wave has killed at least 10 elderly people in Milan in northern Italy with temperatures topping 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) in the past week, health officials said Wednesday. Ten people between 78 and 90 years of age died in the Lombardy region on Tuesday and Wednesday from cardiovascular and breathing problems aggravated by the heat, according to the region’s emergency health service. On Tuesday, Italy’s Civil Protection Agency put 16 towns on the highest alert, level 3, after humidity raised perceived temperatures to 38 degrees C in Milan, Rome and Naples, and 40 degrees C in Sicily. The tiny promontory of Cape Carbonara in Sardegna reached a record 47 degrees C. The sizzling temperatures are set to last until the weekend, according to the Civil Protection Service, which has advised people to drink at least two litres of water a day. –Terra Earth

Heat wave challenges Muslims as Ramadan nears its end

(Reuters) – When Shareef Ghaly is hammering nails into window frames under a scorching sun in the midst of a historic Texas heat wave, he’s doing it for his career.

And Harvard linebacker Zakareya Aossey practices in the heat with no complaints, all for love of the game.

But a stronger conviction leads these two Muslims to suffer through it with no water or food as they near the end of the holy month of Ramadan in one of the hottest U.S. summers on record, when the days stretch past 13 hours and regularly top 100 degrees.

“If this continues, I’m going to have to move somewhere cooler,” said a chuckling Ghaly, who owns Diamondback Renovations and Painting in Austin.

The Muslim month of fasting, a time for believers to atone for sins, refocus their faith and get closer to God, ends next week. Millions of Muslims across the world abstain from food and drink during the daylight hours as ordered by their faith.

They also try to avoid anger, focusing on faith, humility, compassion and the plight of people so poor and needy that “they can’t choose to break their fast,” said Muna Hussaini, 32, an Austin mother and program manager in the tech industry.

“When I am fasting, life comes into perspective,” Hussaini said. “I have to focus on getting through the day, living my life, and praying. Fasting humbles you into appreciating all you’ve been given and is a great way to become grounded, to know what life is really about.” – Reuters

Eastern Europe staggered by heat wave

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Overheated people fainted in the streets. Wildfires burned out of control. Polar bears got extra frozen fish and elephants were doused with cold water.

Authorities across the Balkans issued an emergency heat alert Thursday as temperatures soared to record-high levels.

Officials in Serbia, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia, Albania and Hungary sounded an “orange” heat warning for people to stay indoors and drink water to avoid hyperthermia.

Doctors in Belgrade, the Serbian capital, said emergency teams made over 100 interventions Thursday with residents feeling sick from the heat.

“People are collapsing and falling in the streets,” said emergency clinic doctor Zeljko Bacevic.

One of the hottest spots was Montenegro, where authorities recommended that working hours be cut to skip the extensive heat. Temperatures in capital of Podgorica reached 41 degrees Celsius (106 Fahrenheit) on Thursday, capping one of the longest hot periods in the tiny Adriatic Sea nation in 50 years.

In Macedonia, authorities warned people above 60 and pregnant women not to go to work. In Bosnia and Serbia, unions urged construction companies to pull employees from open air work sites.

In the central Bosnian city of Mostar, temperatures soared to 45 Celsius (113 Fahrenheit) for the second day running. Kids jumped on melting asphalt, leaving footprints in the streets.

“The only way to deal with this is in the river,” said Mostar high school student Semir Hebib. “I sleep on my balcony and in the morning I go and sit next to or in the Neretva river till the evening.” – AP

Is God Trying To Say Something?

August 25, 2011 Comments off

There are times you just have to wonder.

A hurricane that appears to be taking dead aim at both Washington DC and Wall Street?

Gee, I wonder if there’s an embedded message in there somewhere?  After all, insurance companies do call these sorts of events “acts of God”, right?

So….. as we all prepare if we’re in the to-be-impacted area, let’s remember a few things:

  • Small changes in path matter.  They’re also unpredictable.  I was ready to “bug out” for Ivan, and decided to stay literally at 5:00 PM the night it came in.  Why?  Because had the path been about 40 miles east of where it was, I would have been a good 5′ underwater at my home.  As it was the right decision was to stay; we had to battle rising water and succeeded in keeping it out of the house.  Barely.  But I live in a relatively-lightly-populated area.  If you’re in a big city and it looks like Irene might get you, get out.  There’s only one thing worse than getting stuck in a hurricane with your house disintegrating around you, and that’s being in a 2-million-car-long traffic jam with the water rising rapidly.  In a hurricane it is not that the wind blows, it is what the wind blows, and sometimes the “what” includes objects like trees and Volvos.
  • If you’re not prepared by now, you got trouble.  You’ve either got 48 or 72 hours before it’s on top of you, and 12 hours less before the weather starts to seriously deteriorate.  Oh yeah, all the plywood and other essentials will be sold out within 200 miles by now.  If you’re not prepared now stop reading this Ticker and get off your ass or suffer the consequences.  Time’s up.
  • If you want to be a hero (or do something stupid) at a time like this, please make sure your next-of-kin’s phone number and name is written on your chest in permanent Sharpie marker first.  It will make it possible to notify the person who has to come pick up your body.  Seriously.  There’s always someone who tries to do something “heroic” – or just plain stupid – during these storms and a good percentage of the time they die.  Save the ME time in analyzing dental records and use the Sharpie.

While you get ready for the wind and rain, give some contemplation to whether this might be something other than just pure random chance.  Lots of people don’t believe in God.  That’s fine.  Lots of people think there’s a God but he doesn’t really care what you do.  That’s fine too.  In fact we have even seen bank CEO’s talk about doing “God’s work”, which some people of faith would consider to be a direct insult – intentional and malicious blasphemy – over the last couple of years.  Clearly such people do not actually believe in God or they would not make comments that seem awfully close to daring the Almighty to respond.

But then there are those who believe there is a God, he does know what man does, and occasionally he gets*****ed off, especially when extreme and outrageous provocation is continually poked in his eye over the space of years, even decades.  Maybe yes, maybe no, but gee, this is such a coincidence given the recent arm-twisting out of DC on the mortgage “indemnity” issue, the incessant cesspool of fraud on both Wall Street and Washington DC.  Add to that the utter and rank hypocrisy out of both the Republicans and Democrats claiming they’d clean it up, when all they’ve done is screw the common man some more, especially those older people who truly did nothing wrong and have had their savings and retirement destroyed by all the “rescues” engendered with zero interest rate policies, commodity price ramps and their adjuncts.

Still think it’s random chance?

How certain are you? – Market Ticker

The LOZ are confronting the BEAST with hits from beneath the earth (the earthquake that shook D.C.). And soon, no one will doubt the USA being our Mother’s choice of targets. Satan can spin his yarns about leaving his child behind, and he can continue to heavily guard the West Coast, but that won’t save the other targets that the LOZ are eyeing. The LOZ are working over time, and they are determined to meet the time-line by the end of this year for Satan’s Child’s fall.
