Current Events from Around the World

820 posts in this topic

This thread is for all the news we don't quite know what to do with.  News items about current events that are of interest, but probably don't warrant having a thread all their own. Current Event odds and ends from around the world, as it were. The thread is for anyone and everyone to use to post items that fit into this category.

I will start with this one..

Shots fired at Jacksonville International Airport

"Shots were fired at Jacksonville International Airport on Wednesday afternoon near where rental cars are returned.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Cold Case Unit was called to the scene in the 2400 block of Yankee Clipper Road. That usually indicates a police-involved shooting.

No other information was immediately available.

Channel 4 has a crew at the scene and will have a live report on The Local Station at 5 p.m."

California: IRS Illegally Seized 60 Million Health Records

A lawsuit filed in California accuses the Internal Revenue Service of illegal seizure of 60 million health care records belonging to 10 million Americans.

The suit filed in the Superior Court of San Diego by Robert Barnes, a Malibu lawyer representing a corporate client named John Doe Co, charged that IRS agents raided the company on March 11, 2011 in a tax case and seized the medical records.

Potentially Explosive Devices Found In LA Apartment, Parts Of Palms Neighborhood Evacuated

May 15, 2013

By TAMI ABDOLLAH

" LOS ANGELES — A police bomb squad was detonating homemade explosive devices found in an apartment on Wednesday after a traffic stop revealed a potentially dangerous liquid in a man's car, authorities said.

The man remained in custody as police evacuated several buildings and destroyed at least four devices. Authorities believe the man was acting alone, and said there were no apparent links to terrorism.

"This appears to be an individual who was just very curious with explosive devices and then manufactured them," police spokesman Sgt. Frank Preciado said."

And why exactly does the IRS need anyones medical record?  HEPA law states that any medical information is private, does it not? I think the IRS needs a taste of their own medicine. Lets audit them and take a look at THEIR medical record. Turnabout is far play, is it not?  ;)

Just curious about explsive devices my ass.

Grew up by the Quabbin. Glad they are stepping up patrols.

Glad you have started this et al therad, breezy! :)

I needed one...because I stumbled across something but it doesn't warrant a thread as I don't have enough links that can prove the info.

Though this isn't really "current" perhaps but can be affecting right now, so I post this here. Hope it's ok...

TREASURE HUNT OF TAKEDA'S (a War Lord) MILITARY FUNDS

I had just watched a Japanese tv program video on Youtube, called "The Lies and Truths", covering about the treasure hunt of Shingen Takeda's massive military funds in Yamanashi-prefecture, near by Mt. Fuji.

The area is covered by small caves all over the land due to the volcanic formation, and the particular place they were after was 5 million dollars worth, while there are lots more of legendary places left to be said to hold Takeda's funds.

In fact, there was a case of a dead person found in the gauge with few gold bars in his back pack, which was estimated worth about 5 million $s worth, passed away by slipping off from the mountain side in Yamanashi, and the gold is believed to be a part of Takeda's treasures peppered through the area....because the dead man left a note of where he found the pile of gold bars written in water based pen, but as his pack got wet, it became hard to decipher. This note still exists.

The guy apparently tried to come back to get more, so that means there are huge pile of gold bars still left at where this guy found them. (If the government hasn't found them yet...)

The tv crew actually managed to find a very suspicious beep when they went into a cave that it's major rock fell down and covering a layer of soil. They didn't have the bigger gears to excavate it then, so they had to leave, and they requested the Japanese government to return there to dig the site.

Well, the government said to them the area IS A NATIONAL PROTECTED SITE and NOT allowed to do anything further.

...IF the area WAS a national protected site, IT SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED TO DIG IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!!!

I can only think that the government was to hide the location from the nation, and go and dig by themselves instead. Because the exact location of the dig is known to them.

...Even if it's mere 5 million $s worth, I think anything of that amount, Japanese  government would love to just "get it" knowing their screwed up economy... :D

I'm trying to figure out when the tv shows were aired in Japan, but they speak of MAY....interesting that I came across to the videos in May as well...lol...everything happens for reasons and everything is connected somehow to something, somehow... ;)

----------------------------------------

I have managed to find the date the second episode was on...which was 14th August 2009...pretty old.... ;D (http://dogatch.jp/blog/news/tbs/0911086862.html)

This is as good a place as any to put this as we dont have a specialised HAARP thread, maybe we should start one.

The first 11 mins of this video is really interesting re ; Enki / EA

Rev Michelle Hopkins talks us through the cloud formations happening right as we speak, i mean NOW.

The " signal " seems to be coming from a static satellite ( possibly Russian ) in orbit and directing a pulse over GREENLAND

The next 9 mins i have seen before somewhere, im not into doom and i try to keep it to a minimum, that said, take from it what you will.

http://www.disclose.tv/action/viewvideo/138404/TESLA_TECH_ASTONISHING_MASSIVE_HAARP_Sonic_Sculpting_to_Deceive_the_Masses_HAS_BEGUN/

Description:

TTA = Tesla Tech Array

Over Greenland, a single intermittent sonic blast is emitted from a satellite in Static Orbit. (I believe it is Russian.) With one blast, the pattern is laid in? the corresponding conductive nuclei over Greenland and escorted eastward with several TTA's in the area working in concert. The sonic undulation patterns are profound. And the single sonic? blast over Greenland is visualized on another map creating images, like metals on a sheet above a carved magnet.

The Weather Channel shows icy chemcloud sculptures in the sky

that span entire nations.

More images than were presented here.

http://www.weatherchannel.com.au/WeatherMap

For anyone who questions whether these images in the first map are being mirrored, here is another map showing the same images in real time, updated every minute. Revealing visual evidence of the differentiation between both sides of the images, just as in the first map proving these images are NOT MIRRORED.

Though not pointed out in the video, multi-directional sonic undulation is visible throughout the images.

This just has to be a joke for science, surely ( not shirley Botanic ) surely there is an early warning detection device capable of tracking incoming objects  within our solar system.

How was this object missed by anyone with eyes to see it.

Come on all those observatories all those astronomers/astrologers etc all those billions of currency spent watching the skies all those government agencies NASA etc all those private agencies ESA etc.

They are trying to tell us that 1/one person decided to check on past events just to see if anything happened.

I think not !!

TPTB only tell you what they want you to know.

Huge Rock Crashes Into Moon, Sparks Giant Explosion

"On March 17, 2013, an object about the size of a small boulder hit the lunar surface in Mare Imbrium," Bill Cooke of NASA's Meteoroid Environment Office said in a statement. "It exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we've ever seen before."

Scientists didn't see the impact occur in real time. It was only when Ron Suggs, an analyst at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., reviewed a video of the bright moon crash recorded by one of the moon monitoring program's 14-inch telescopes that the event was discovered.

EXPOSED: Angelina Jolie part of a clever corporate scheme to protect billions in BRCA gene patents, influence Supreme Court decision (opinion)

But the smoking gun is the fact that Angelina Jolie's seemingly spontaneous announcement magically appeared on the cover of People Magazine this week -- a magazine that is usually finalized for publication three weeks before it appears on newsstands. That cover, not surprisingly, uses the same language found in the NYT op-ed piece: "HER BRAVE CHOICE" and "This was the right thing to do." The flowery, pro-choice language is not a coincidence.

Also apparently the video from the source has been removed, and also removed from TuTube. Coincidence no, deliberate censorship yes.

Metro North Crash: Injuries Reported After Commuter Trains Collide In Connecticut

05/17/13 07:43 PM ET EDT

FAIRFIELD, Conn. — Two commuter trains collided outside New York City during the evening rush hour Friday, injuring 20 or more people, authorities said. There were no reports of fatalities.

The Metro-North Railroad, a commuter line serving the northern suburbs, referred in a news release to a "major derailment" near Fairfield, in southern Connecticut. It said emergency workers were at the scene of the accident, which came shortly after 6 p.m.

Twenty to 25 people were injured, Fairfield Police Officer Matt Panilaitis told The Associated Press. He said there were no fatalities.

Photos taken at the scene showed a train car askew on the rails, with its end smashed up and brushing against another train

The railroad said the accident involved a New York-bound train leaving New Haven. It derailed and hit a westbound train near Fairfield. Some cars on the second train also derailed.

"At this stage, we don't know if this is a mechanical failure, an accident or something deliberate," Fairfield police spokesman Lt. James Perez told the Connecticut Post.

Benjamin Fulford vs Japanese Yakuza Yamaguchi-Gumi

He's fully loaded with Japanese there...

He's really pissed off because he was close to be assassinated and he found out the car that was used for the attack belonged to Yamaguchi-Gumi.

He went there to explain listening to Mosado (but TPTB in fact in the end) and helping their side is no good because their employer turned out to be trying to kill off 40 Million people off the Earth.

While Ben says he's there and doing that because he stands for saving the humanity, not money or fame...many comments are stating he must be mentally ill....

1:44 into the 4th video (youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=yX_XWozSA-4) of this mega annoyance-to-the-surrounding-residents public speech Ben has made, he even gave out his own mobile number he uses in Japan, saying to the Yakuza family that if they need help to reform the group into a PTY LTD instead, he'd give them all the help he could provide... :rolleyes:

"A British solider has been reported to have been beheaded on the streets of Woolwich, south east London by two men at 2:20pm afternoon.

Boil-water advisory widens for Montreal area

1.3 million people affected after routine maintenance at Atwater plant stirs sediment

May 22, 2013

By RENÉ BRUEMMER and Anne Sutherland, THE GAZETTE

"Please check back regularly for updates on this story, which is currently not behind The Gazette's pay meter  in the interest of public safety.

MONTREAL — Routine maintenance gone wrong at one of Montreal’s biggest water filtration plants spurred the largest boil water advisory in the city’s history Wednesday, forcing schools to tape their water fountains closed, cafés to boil water and water-based businesses like fruit-drink maker Liquid Nutrition to close up shop for the day. In total, 1.3 million of the island’s 1.8 million residents were affected.

Officials with the City of Montreal’s water department said the 24-hour boil water advisory was just a precautionary measure, as the contamination was likely limited to non-toxic sediment in the water and probably wasn’t tainted with bacteria.

But with more than a million residents receiving emergency notices from the city’s reverse 911 message service containing little information on the cause of the adivsory, murky water pouring from some taps and a 24-hour delay before bacteria tests would return, many residents were not soothed by the city’s assurances."

Yuichiro Miura...the man is 80 years old.

He's Japanese.

Currently this is the oldest known to achieve the climbing Everest to the top.

The man used to be a professional skier, already climbed Everest successfully twice before.

Interesting that the oldest FEMALE climber who made it to the top of Everest is also Japanese, 75 years old.

I-5 Skagit River Bridge collapses; people, vehicles in water

"SKAGIT COUNTY, Wash. —

The Interstate 5 bridge over the Skagit River at Mount Vernon collapsed Thursday evening, dumping vehicles and people into the water, the Washington State Patrol said.

The four-lane bridge collapsed shortly after 7 p.m., Trooper Mark Francis said.

Trooper Mark Francis said people were in the water, but it was not clear how many or the extent of injuries. He did not know what caused the collapse.

A Skagit Valley Herald reporter at the scene said a sheriff's office rescue boat has arrived and rescue crews were looking for people in the water.

The reporter saw one person sitting atop one vehicle in the water and could see a second vehicle as well.

Crowds of people lined the river to watch the scene unfold, and drivers were told to stay away.

The bridge, built in 1955, was used by 70,000 vehicles daily, according to 2010 statistics. This story will be updated when more information is available."

Missouri rail crash brings down US road bridge

_67813982_de27.jpg

May 25, 2013

Two goods trains have collided in the US state of Missouri, bringing down a road bridge and leaving seven people injured

"The crash, in Scott County, prompted one of the trains to derail, hitting a pillar propping up Highway M, reports said.

Two cars were on the bridge when it collapsed. Five passengers inside the cars were hurt and taken to hospital.

Two people in one of the goods trains were also injured.

The collision happened at 02:30 (07:30 GMT) near Chaffee in south-east Missouri.

Scott County Sheriff Rick Walter told St Louis TV station KMOV that a Union Pacific train had just gone through an intersection when it ploughed into a Burlington Northern train.

Several carriages derailed and as one of the trains hit the bridge, spilt fuel ignited a fire.

None of the injured was said to be in a serious condition.

A week ago, more than 60 people were injured when two commuter trains collided during the rush hour in Connecticut."

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-22667470

another source

"(Reuters) - Two freight trains collided at a rail intersection in Missouri on Saturday, triggering the collapse of a highway overpass when several rail cars derailed and struck a support pillar, a county sheriff's dispatcher said.

Seven people were hurt, including five in cars on the two-lane overpass near southeastern Missouri town of Chaffee and the conductors of the two trains, Scott County Sheriff's dispatcher Clay Slipis said.

"One train T-boned the other one and caused it to derail, and the derailed train hit a pillar which caused the overpass to collapse," Slipis said of the pre-dawn crash near Chaffee, about 15 miles southwest of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

http://my.chicagotribune.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-76058085/

So now all of a sudden we have a two incidences of two trains on the same track at the same time.

The latest one causing the collapse of an overpass

A railway bridge in Texas burns down

A portion of an important bridge on the main corridor N/S I-5 collapses into the Skagit River when struck by an oversize load, and all within the last week?? Let me be the first to say, Interesting!!
