    Oh Suzz, not cool my friend. No offence, but I do not know of one truly gifted person who feels a possible death that would actually tell the person directly, it is simply not done as words have power. Foop, I don't feel that at all, I (like you) felt warm as I read the account of your dream. It was beautiful and suggests to me that you have reached a stage of enlightenment where you will be able to access more of the true ancient Shaman knowledge, more of the secrets that 'normal' people do not see, feel or experience. Your dream suggests you have in a sense graduated or been initiated to another level, which is wonderful. You have found your way home and reconnected with your true roots whilst still in this physical. I had a similar experience with a cave on a vision quest I did a few days ago. I became aware that I was in a dark cave and my partner was there. We met our old German Shepherd 'Dusty' which didn't surprise me because my partner met Dusty in a cave on a vision quest after we lost him and he had led my partner out of the cave to show him the beautiful place where his soul now resided so I felt good about meeting him again. Dusty started to lead us one way out of the cave and soon I could soon see a round circle of light ahead where the entrance of the cave was but Dusty stopped and just looked. He lay down on the floor and just looked ahead checking it out and would not take us further out of the cave. I was trying to figure out what was wrong with him when he suddenly got up, turned around and started taking us back into the cave. We came across a blue energy circle (like a stargate sort of) spiralling in the dark. Dusty went through and my partner and I holding hands approached to pass through but as we did I let go of my partners hand and stayed on the original side as he went through. I stood there and said to myself ..... is this what I really want and then decided that everyone I loved had gone through and so said yes, I would go too. On the other side was the most beautiful place I have ever seen. The animals could talk and Dusty led us to a lovely little house and said 'this is your new home' which I thought was really cool that there was already a house built for us on arrival. My daughter came out of the front door carrying a baby (she is currently 30 and single) and a tall dark hair man followed her out and put his arm around her. I spoke to them and the vision quest ended.

    A Man Who Smelled Like Beer & Had Lipstick All Over His Face Sat Next To A Priest. Their Conversation Is Hysterical. A drunk man who smelled like beer sat down on a bus seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the man turned to the priest and asked, "Say, Father, what causes arthritis?" "My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man." "Well, I'll be damned," the drunk muttered, returning to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does." Source: http://tinyurl.com/znq5fwg

    This is one of my latest dreams. This past week, I dreamt I was being initiated. In my dream, I was walking from the mouth of a cave with a young man, probably in his 20-30’s, beside me. He may have been my son. Not my real son now, but in that dreamspace. But he could have been someone not related. At any rate, I felt a closeness to him. We walked towards the back of the cave and there were hieroglyphics on the ceiling and the sides of the cave. There were posts that had wads of twigs and moss on the ends that were lit by weren’t bright. They were a diffused burning light. I felt totally at peace. I feel I must have been about the age I am now, early 60’s. I wore little clothing but was covered by some sort of rough fabric over my shoulders with my arms bare and maybe down to around my knees. The young man stayed a couple of paces behind me to my right. At the end of the cave (or what I thought was the end) was a grand room and a few people were present, both men and women. No children were there. Many were far older than me. All were sitting on the ground or beside big stones. There was an elderly woman in front of a large round stoned-in fire pit. The embers were glowing, but it wasn’t a fire, just coals and embers like it had been burning for a long time. When I walked up the young man shifted away. I don’t recall seeing him again. The woman stood and spoke to the people but I don’t recall what she said. It was a different language, but I knew it. My memory on waking didn’t provide the content of any comments. She gestured for me to come toward her to the right of the fire. As we stood there by the embers, she put her hand on something near the ground and smeared it on my upper arms. She took her other hand and put it in another kind of paste and marked my forehead, chin, and neck. She unfastened the top of my garment and it fell to my waste. Then she took her hands and marked my chest and breast and motioned for me to turn around and she marked my back. I felt proud and humbled. I shivered and kept my glaze straight, not looking at anyone. She pulled me back to face her and she began chanting. She firmly pushed my shoulders down to have me sit on my knees. I sat on my knees and closed my eyes. I woke up. I lay there for a long time trying to remember what was said, but it wouldn’t come to me.

    This Is What Happens When An Animal Shelter Partners With An Elderly Care Facility… By Amanda Froelich November 18, 2016 True Activist http://tinyurl.com/jblm2hv When an animal shelter collaborated with an elderly care center, both the kittens and residents benefited immensely. Credit: Pima Animal Care When an animal shelter located in Tucson, Arizona, had kittens to care for and not enough staff, it made the unconventional decision to collaborate with an elderly care facility. I Heart Cats relays that Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) and the Catalina Springs Memory Care (“Catalina Springs”) partnered so that senior residents who desire (and require) more interaction and stimulus could care for the tiny, furry creatures. Says Sharon Mercer, Executive Director of Catalina Springs, “To some, it may seem peculiar at first: Residents who are in need of around-the-clock care themselves, given the task to care for these young kittens. But there are skills, emotions, and needs that do not just leave a person with Dementia or Alzheimer’s. The desire to give love and receive love remains.” The program was envisioned and realized by Catalina Springs Health Service Director Rebecca Hamilton, RN. Reportedly, Hamilton is responsible for attending to the elders as well as fostering felines. From personal experience, she knows how much joy can result from caring for animals in need. Credit: Pima Animal Care Fortunately, the program was deemed to be a success! Both the elderly individuals and the kittens improved from the interaction. The kittens doubled in weight, and the elders reported increased levels of happiness. Said Mercer: “The kittens have given us the opportunity to nurture this human condition that lies in each and every one of our residents.” As was proven by the exchange, a collaboration between an elderly care facility and an animal shelter can benefit all involved. Following are some heart-warming photos of the program in action: Credit: Pima Animal Care Credit: Pima Animal Care Credit: Pima Animal Care Credit: Pima Animal Care Credit: Pima Animal Care Credit: Pima Animal Care Thanks to programs such as this one, more kittens will have the opportunity to grow up and be adopted by loving families.

    First let me say that I mean no disrespect to the deceased or the injured by bringing this up at this time and I'm not saying that anything hinkey is going on. I think that what I am about to point out is poor editing/source verification by the publication. I am pointing it out because what we do here is observe and analyze. This is from the article breezy posted above concerning the last minute change of flights (which is one that I saw earlier today, and why the back of my brain probably got stuck on this). https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2285040/colombian-plane-crash-that-left-76-dead-wiped-out-brazilian-side-who-had-changed-flights-at-the-last-minute-as-they-travelled-for-cup-final/ But this is the very reason that it's difficult to trust any media, no matter what they're reporting. (Editing to say that I wonder if they were actually on another plane that day. That could explain the discrepancy below. But still doesn't dissipate my rant because journalism should have already answered this question. You'll understand as you read more below.) My problem is with the discrepancy in the seating configuration shown in one of the photos that purports to be the team on the plane before take off, the snap chat and other videos that purport to be them on the plane before takeoff, and the reported potential configuration on this type of plane. First, the plane was an Avro RJ85, a version of the BAe-146. https://aviation-safety.net/database/record.php?id=20161128-0 Then, there is this about the typical configuration: Now, granted, the plane could have a custom configuration, but I doubt it would ever have more than 6 seats across. Here are some variations on the configuration for such planes: Note that none are more than 6 across. And none have 2 aisles. Now, here is the photo that I believe is likely showing those folks on the plane that went down last night. Notice the 3 x 3 configuration of the seats, consistent with what's discussed above. Next, take a look at the videos in the article. I have tried to get screen shots (below) but it's better if you look at the videos. You will see that those videos were taken on a different plane (767? or other) as the configuration of the seats is 2 x 3 x 2, in both of the videos. That's similar to this configuration below, which is a larger (and totally different) plane. Of course, I allow for the fact that the plane could have had a special configuration. But it's doubtful. I don't think the specs would accommodate it. And, in any event, they were all either on a 3 x 3, OR a 2 x 3 x 2. But not both. So, all of this is to show just how, either, poor and/or manipulative the media are. It's already a tragedy. But they present things that are so obviously in conflict to pull on our emotions (which are already feeling the sorrow). Couldn't they have just said here's some video from another flight that the team flew on recently? Giving the benefit of the doubt, perhaps it was just an honest error in trying to get the report out. Even so, it's a poor excuse. And this is the kind of stuff that gets people going on conspiracy and fake news. It's a reminder that we have to stay vigilant and aware in our taking in of reports from the media. It's such a shame. My thoughts and prayers are with those who were lost and who have lost loved ones.

    The Great Smoky Mountains burn Terrified guests are trapped inside a burning Hilton hotel as a huge wildfire engulfs the Tennessee resort towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. Dollywood theme park has been evacuated as thousands of tourists and residents fled the Great Smoky Mountains amidst reports of cars bursting into flames, dozens of homes being engulfed by fire, and the sky turning brown with smoke and flames. Motorists clogged the roads after the Gatlinburg Fire Department ordered the mandatory evacuation of the town at just after 6pm on Monday, as strong wind conditions fanned the flames making the fire increasingly unpredictable and dangerous. Meanwhile there are also fears for over 10,000 animals at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, which is also surrounded by flames. And although rain is forecast that would dampen the flames, strong winds are also predicted, which would hamper the effort to tackle the fires. It comes as terrifying video shot from the Gatlinburg Park Vista Hilton Hotel appeared to show flames just outside the windows, as guests huddled together inside. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3980932/Gaitlinburg-burns-Wildfire-sweeps-Tennessee-resort-town-population-4-000-s-Dollywood-residents-evacuate.html#ixzz4RP4L3R6P http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2016/11/28/tennessee-wildfires-evacuation-gatlinburg/94580940/

    Awe thanks Jessica, but don’t be upset with Suuzz. I wasn’t offended/distressed by Suuzz’s remarks. If one has a strong feeling about such things, and they feel compelled to speak, then that is what their soul is telling them to do. Although at first blush, reading it did give me chills, I nonetheless didn’t take it to heart. Mostly I guess because that is not what I took away from the dream, AT ALL. Personally, I was left with a feeling of great love, strength and humility. When I told my husband what Suuzz had remarked, followed by Kande’s question (which was a great question by the way), he said “you didn’t feel it was a bad dream, did you? You said it was an awesome dream.” And it was. Even though I don’t quite understand fully what the dream was showing me, I do believe it is or will be important at some point in the future. And I can’t say enough how much I appreciate each of your insights in helping me understand the meaning, as I do believe it is a powerful dream and one I’m not likely to forget. My husband thinks I channel through my dreams. I don’t know if I do or not. I don’t feel the wiser for them, but they are quite vivid and meaningful. Jessica, it appears you have very vivid and meaningful dreams as well. I’m glad you were able to reconnect with Dusty and the love you felt still sound, not to mention perhaps being shown what may be a future timeline. It never ceases to amaze me how animals have such a strong influence on our lives that they provide us guidance while living and then again when passed on. I feel some of my pets are still there beside me at times. Perhaps we’re being prepared for something to come in our future. That’s what I honestly believe could be the truth. Whatever is to come is to come and we need to be ready for it regardless. Thank you for your wisdom, guidance, and friendship in this wonderful land of Chani.

    I have to say watching this video really upsets me. when he said no one knew, no warning, nothing, I have to say I believe him. I live 90 miles north of Atlanta and these fires started well over a month ago and no one, NO ONE was reporting on them. The news actually just began reporting on it when Atlanta began to get the smoke from the fires, which by then had spread to so many areas (and of course so many of them are started by idiot/arsonists). I hope they burn in hell. So frightening.

    Lisa and Dani had a recent program that discussed the events of WW2 having a change in timeline. I only arrived in Oz in the mid 70s, but my understanding was that Darwin was bombed by the Japanese and a Japanese 2 man sub was discovered in Sydney Harbour. Nothing else of significance happened. Hubby has lived here all his life and wasn't aware of the story below, or GERMAN boats planting a mine at a Newcastle beach, and then the mine floating into Surfers Paradise in 1966, and being destroyed. A reunion of the 16th Minesweeping Squadron is taking place at Surfers Paradise, where some of those attending helped safely destroy a 1941 German mine in 1966. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-05/mine-sweepers'-reunion-recalls-german-mine-at/7997950

    Clintons STUNNED as recount falls apart Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s desperate attempt to overturn the presidential election results in key states is coming apart at the seams. After decades of getting everything they want, the Clintons are finally tasting the bitter rejection of the American people — and the mounting recount failures, combined with the election results, have reportedly left husband Bill Clinton dazed and dumbfounded. Hillary’s last ditch attempt at a recount, spear-headed by over six million in donations by heavily Democratic backers to Green Party candidate Jill Stein, is facing increasing difficulties and missteps. In Wisconsin, Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn has refused to order local officials to conduct the state’s presidential recount by hand, acknowledging that Stein’s wild conspiracy theory of Russians hacking voting equipment had zero evidence. https://thehornnews.com/clintons-stunned-recount-falls-apart/

    Erdogan: Turkish forces are in Syria to end Assad's rule Nov. 29, 2016 "Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that the Turkish Army entered Syria to end the rule of President Bashar Assad, whom he accused of terrorism and causing the deaths of thousands. “We entered [Syria] to end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror. [We didn’t enter] for any other reason,” the Turkish president said at the first Inter-Parliamentary Jerusalem Platform Symposium in Istanbul, as quoted by Hurriyet daily. Erdogan said that Turkey has no territorial claims in Syria, but instead wants to hand over power to the Syrian population, adding that Ankara is seeking to restore “justice.” “Why did we enter? We do not have an eye on Syrian soil. The issue is to provide lands to their real owners. That is to say we are there for the establishment of justice,” he said. He went on to say that “in his estimation” almost 1 million people have died in the conflict in Syria, although no monitoring group has provided any similar figures. The latest UN estimate stands at 400,000 people killed in the five-year civil war. Erdogan said that Turkey could not “endure” the unending killing of civilians and “had to enter Syria together with the Free Syrian Army.” The Turkish leader also accused the UN of inability to influence the situation in Syria and said that the organization is ineffective in its current state. “The world is bigger than five,” he said, referring to the number of permanent members on the UN Security Council, as reported by Hurriyet." snip https://www.rt.com/news/368601-erdogan-syria-oust-assad/ So then, Erdogan makes kissy kissy with Russia, only to act for what the US has been after all along? Assad's ouster? Is Putin going to allow this? Something doesn't pass the smell test with this one.

    Fears Mount Of Multiple Bank Failures In Italy If Renzi Loses Referendum Nov. 28, 2016 " Up to eight of Italy’s troubled banks risk failing if prime minister Matteo Renzi loses a constitutional referendum next weekend and ensuing market turbulence deters investors from recapitalising them, officials and senior bankers say. Mr Renzi, who says he will quit if he loses the referendum, had championed a market solution to solve the problems of Italy’s €4tn banking system and avoid a vote-losing “resolution” of Italian banks under new EU rules. Resolution, a new regulatory mechanism, restructures and, if necessary, winds up a bank by imposing losses on both equity and debt investors, particularly controversial in Italy, where millions of individual investors have bought bank bonds " snip http://endtimeheadlines.org/2016/11/fears-mount-of-multiple-bank-failures-in-italy-if-renzi-loses-referendum/ original source https://www.ft.com/content/e588ea6a-b49f-11e6-961e-a1acd97f622d BREAKING: TRUMP MOVES TO ABOLISH THE FEDERAL RESERVE AND INSTITUTE GOLD STANDARD Nov. 29, 2016 Martin Walsh "Donald Trump won the election in a landslide because of bold ideas. His ideas would erase and remove decades of failed policies and corrupt agendas that have plagued this country for too long. As Trump’s transition team continues to fill his cabinet, more and more attention continues to surround the possible selections for a variety of high-ranking positions and meetings that might help decide these appointments. On Monday, Trump held a meeting with John Allison, the former CEO of the bank BB&T and of the libertarian think tank the Cato Institute. We have seen several reports indicating that Trump is considering Allison for Treasury secretary." snip tweet Why is that important? On the campaign trail, Trump often questioned the future of the Federal Reserve’s political independence. In line with these comments, Allison wants to abolish Federal Reserve all together and go back to the gold standard. In fact, Allison takes that rhetoric one step further. While acting as the head of the Cato Institute, Allison published several thesis indicating that the Federal Reserve was obsolete and needed to be abolished as it restricts power from the people and allows billionaire cronies to run banks globally. “I would get rid of the Federal Reserve because the volatility in the economy is primarily caused by the Fed,” Allison wrote in 2014 for the Cato Journal. As an alternative, Allison argues that if we allow the market to regulate itself, it would be preferable to the Federal Reserve harming the stability of the financial system." snip https://conservativedailypost.com/breaking-trump-moves-to-abolish-the-federal-reserve-and-institute-gold-standard/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=LH&utm_content=Martin

    Great explanation Jessica. This Wheel of Fortune represents the changing Politics in Europe with Geert Wilders (Netherlands), Marie le Pen (France) and Frauke Petry (Germany) BUT (and i do this in capital letters) they are all tied up onto the Wheel. Why, you might think are they tied up? Unfortunately, they are not as "Free" (Freedom-party liberals they call themselves) as one would think. All their funding comes from big Bankers and when there is a crisis they will do what is told by those Bankers. As one time happened in a crisis in the Netherlands, Party for Freedom (PVV) (Geert Wilders) were playing a key role in a Political discussion and were signing a law as a majority in Parliament should or there would have to be drawn new elections. in a pause 5 minutes before signing a reporter filmed them taking the break and saw Geert Wilders taking his phone and discussing something. Directly after the break he let the negotiations fail and wanted to create a Political crash. Nobody knew why. Since he is the sole leader of this party he decides everything and his party-members (like he publicly said) are filling up the spots for voting. Also he has to make public all donations he is getting for his party. He refuses and willingly pays the €25.000 fine each year. Already proven he has the DHFC Bank as one of his main sponsors. Thanks to our Minister of Finance back then that could be prevented. But now i know why they are tied up. Free within Europe but NOT in control.

    DEVASTATING Complaint Filed Against Jill Stein… “Fraud, Perjury…” Nov. 28, 2016 "(PTV) A US Green Party member unhappy with the party’s presidential candidate Jill Stein’s move to challenge the election vote count in three states has filed a complaint with the Wisconsin Attorney General, alleging that her petition may have contained false statements under oath. The petition, filed by American journalist and radio host Don DeBar on Monday, alleges that the false statements may have induced the state to fraudulently conduct a recount and caused thousands of people to donate a reported sum of $6 million to Stein’s effort. Stein submitted the recount request to Wisconsin authorities on Friday. She also planned to formally file for recounts with authorities in Michigan and Pennsylvania. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton narrowly lost these three states to Republican Donald Trump, the president-elect. If Clinton had won all of these states, their total of 46 Electoral College votes would have been enough for her to win the White House." snip http://thetruthdivision.com/2016/11/breaking-devastating-complaint-filed-against-jill-stein-fraud-perjury/

    Literally Too Many Veterans Have Signed Up to Join DAPL Protests November 28, 2016 | Carey Wedler Source: Anti-Media http://tinyurl.com/jsfluuo (ANTIMEDIA) Last week, the newly formed group “Veterans Stand for Standing Rock” called on veterans to nonviolently stand up to militarized law enforcement at the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. Since its initial call to action, the veterans’ movement has grown exponentially. Last week, the Facebook event, which was launched by Army veteran Wesley Clark Jr. and former Marine and Baltimore cop-turned-reformist, Michael A. Wood Jr., received widespread media attention. This boost helped increase the number of attendees from a couple hundred veterans to their maximum capacity of 2,000. A standard email response from the group (as of Saturday) reads: “We are happy to announce our small campaign has grown to 2,000 Veterans from every corner of the US [and] will be joining us to stand in peace with our brothers and sisters in Standing Rock.” Their event page states they have over 2,100 veterans signed up and are exploring options for a second trip. The group has a strict no weapons policy but is stocking up on body armor and protective gear like gas masks to withstand potential attacks from the heavily militarized police, who have arrested at least 400 of protesters so far. According to on-site medics, hundreds of protesters have also been injured. Last week, a 21-year-old woman was reportedly hit with a concussion grenade, leading to a severe injury that may require her arm to be amputated. Though police have blamed protesters for what happened to her, at least one witness claims law enforcement’s version of events is untruthful. Outrage against incidents like these, as well as attacks on journalists via tasers, rubber bullets, and felony charges has made the ongoing situation ripe for outside intervention. “This country is repressing our people,” Wood Jr. said last week. “If we’re going to be heroes, if we’re really going to be those veterans that this country praises, well, then we need to do the things that we actually said we’re going to do when we took the oath to defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic.” With 2,100 veterans signed up to make a stand, it appears police will be forced to reconcile their aggressive behavior with the nonviolent show of veterans, who intend to march toward police on site. The group has gained substantial financial backing since word of their mission spread. According to their GoFundMe page, they have already raised over $500,000 to fund their trip, which is planned for December 4 to December 7. Their goal is currently set at $750,000, an increase from the $100,000 — and then $200,000 — requested last week. “I increased the goal because I was wrong,” Wood Jr. said, according to Task and Purpose. “I was giving a ballpark number that we could get 500 people there without feeling like I was asking much of the public. In a short period of two days, the picture changed dramatically. As long as we’re increasing in size, I have to ask for more funds. And as long as we have more funds, we will increase in size.” He added: “This is already way beyond transportation. So the additional funds will go toward protective equipment, infrastructure, lodging, food, medical supplies, and stuff to help deal with the elements of nature.” The funds will also go toward bailing out members of the group who are arrested during their demonstration. As the cash and volunteers continue to roll in, the group’s resolve in its self-described “deployment” is only increasing. “We’ve grown to the point where we have an actual chain of command now,” Wood Jr. said. “Emails are hundreds a day, if not thousands.” Anti-Media spoke to one Navy veteran, Jake Bagwell, who heard about the event last week through social media and is now scheduled to head to Standing Rock, pending his request for time off from work. “I figured if any demographic would have a big enough impact to wake people up, it’s vets. Especially when it comes to standing up to the government,” he said. He added: “Nothing about what the ‘authorities’ are doing makes sense. Water cannons in subfreezing temperatures? Are you serious?” Another veteran, Sam Deering, posted on Facebook about his decision to join Vets Stand for Standing Rock: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the land where protesters are camped out, issued a notice last week warning them to evacuate by December 5. Reuters reports the agency has said it has no plans to forcibly remove protesters, but on Monday, North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple issued a separate mandatory order to evacuate the area. Anti-Media has reached out to Veterans Stand for Standing Rock to learn how they plan to respond to these demands and will update this story if they respond. https://web.facebook.com/sedefmb/videos/10154224954937569/ This article (Literally Too Many Veterans Have Signed Up to Join DAPL Protests) is free and open source.

    “The Fuse Has Been Lit”: Jim Willie Issues Financial Collapse Warning By Jim Willie, GoldenJackass: Posted on November 28, 2016 by The Doc Many are the potential fuses to be lit, which would create the conflagration, the massive bonfire of the bond vanities and bank charades. Many are the fuses lying around, all criss-crossed, all exposed, all overlapping each other in highly dangerous manner. If any single fuse is lit, then several will light and the detonation arrives. It is unavoidable since the financial world is so deeply interwoven. Never in modern history has the global financial structure been so badly weakened, so totally corrupted, so thoroughly undermined by control mechanisms, so intensely defended by sanctions even war. In 2007 and early 2008, the Jackass warned of a mortgage bust that would alter the global system forever. It happened with far reaching consequences which endure to this day. In recent months the Jackass is warning of a Systemic Lehman event, where several major national systems are at heightened risk of a similar bust like what happened in September 2008. Except this time, the entire global financial system will erupt like a debt volcano, with several epicenters, all located in the West. The big Western banks are all lashed together, all tied to each other. The banker cabal believed that the interconnectivity within their bank structures would make them all immune to failure risk. The reality is that the failure of any one major bank guarantees the systemic breakdown of all of them. It will erupt like a cave-in of the flying buttresses at the Notre Dame in Paris, with numerous bank (churches) collapsing, all located in the West. FINAL SOLUTION When the collapse occurs, the solution will finally be discussed, the solution avoided for eight full years. THE GOLD STANDARD WILL BE INSTALLED. It will first arrive in the trade payment system. Then it will arrive in the banking reserves system. Lastly it will be seen in the gold backed currencies. The paper game has gone on since 2008 in grand style and unspeakable corruption. snip Source: Silver Doctors http://tinyurl.com/jf626f8

    Anarchists clash with Athens police over Obama visit Nov. 15, 2016 John Psaropoulos "Protesters hit the streets throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails as Greek police respond with tear gas and stun grenades. Athens, Greece - Police battled with anarchists late into the night following two marches protesting against US President Barack Obama's visit. Greek police estimated as many as 150 anarchists were involved in the clashes. They responded to rocks and Molotov cocktails with tear gas and stun grenades. "A march by PAME [the communist party labour union] ended peacefully. A second march pushed up against a police cordon and protesters threw two Molotov cocktails," an Athens police spokesman told Al Jazeera. "That's when the clashes began." By late at night, police had confined the violence to the area of the Athens Polytechnic - a campus anarchists have used in the past as a safe haven from police, who aren't allowed onto university grounds without a request from the chancellor. Police said there were no injuries or damage to private property. Some 8,000 protesters walked through central avenues chanting slogans against the European Union, NATO, and the International Monetary Fund, a staple of left-wing marches. Leftists normally hold an annual protest march outside the US embassy on November 17 to commemorate the crushing of a student uprising by a military dictatorship in 1973. But Obama's arrival two days before kicked off demonstrations early this year." snip http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/11/anarchists-clash-athens-police-obama-visit-161115215124061.html

    Russia's Aircraft Carrier Group Prepares Strike on Terrorists in Aleppo Province November 8, 2016 "A source within Russia's Ministry of Defense told Gazeta.ru that the Navy's aircraft carrier group is ready to launch a strike targeting Daesh terrorists in the province of Aleppo in the next 24 hours. The attack, which will likely engage Kalibr cruise missiles, will target militants outside of Aleppo, and not the residential areas. The group, which includes Russia's 'Admiral Kuznetsov' aircraft carrier, 'Pyotr Veliky' nuclear power guided missile cruiser and two destroyers, has completed its transfer to the Mediterranean Sea and is getting ready to strike, the MoD source said. "The group's main goal is to carry out missile strikes on terrorists outside of Aleppo that are attempting to get into the city", the source added. He also said that Kalibr cruise missiles will be used in the strikes, but did not specify from which ships the missiles will be launched. No Russian surface ship that is currently in the Med is capable of firing the Kalibr-NK missiles, but submarine-launched Kalibr-PL could be used in the strike. The surface-launched type of Kalibr missile could also be launched from the Caspian Sea. " snip https://sputniknews.com/middleeast/201611081047197471-russian-aircraft-carrier-strike-syria/

    Carbon nanotubes turn spinach plants into a living bomb detector October 31, 2016 Timothy Revell Plant biodetectors could signal the presence of explosives pixal/imageBroker/Rex/Shutterstock " There’s something odd in the water – a slight taste of a landmine nearby. You won’t notice it, but nanotech-enhanced spinach plants certainly can. A group of MIT engineers led by Michael Strano has converted ordinary spinach plants into biological bomb detectors. The engineers implanted customised carbon nanotubes into the leaves of living plants to turn them into a real-time monitoring system for explosive molecules. When the plants suck water from the ground into the leaves, the carbon nanotubes can detect the presence of any nitroaromatics – chemical compounds often found in explosives such as landmines. When the researchers shine a laser on the nanotubes, they emit a fluorescent signal if they pick up nitroaromatics. This signal can be detected by an infrared camera up to a metre away. Mine finder The research, published in Nature Materials, has yet to be tested for real, but eventually it could be possible to sow seeds across a site suspected of containing landmines and use the plant detection system to locate them. This isn’t the first time that plants have been tweaked using nanotechnology. Strano’s research group has used similar techniques to improve plants’ photosynthesis ability and to develop detectors for hydrogen peroxide, TNT, and the nerve gas sarin. Plants are well suited to spotting different chemical compounds in ground water as they naturally develop extensive root networks, enabling them to sample a large area of soil. The latest research is “pushing the interaction of nanoparticles with biological systems,” says Matthew Baker from the University of Strathclyde. He says one next possible step will be dispense with the infrared sensor. Other research has genetically modified plants so that they stop producing chlorophyll and change colour when exposed to certain substances in the ground, so the detectors need no extra technology.

    Is death just an ILLUSION? Consciousness CONTINUES in alternate universe, scientist claims Nov. 29, 2015 Sean Martin "DEATH is an illusion and our consciousness simply transcends to an alternative universe, according to an astonishing theory. Dr Robert Lanza, a scientist and theoretician, claims there is no such thing as death – just death of the body. He believes our minds exist through energy which is contained in our bodies and is released once our physical beings cease in a process he calls ‘biocentrism’. Dr Lanza says that we simply believe we die because that is what we are taught – but the reality is an illusion. The scientist’s theory essentially elaborates on Einstein’s famous quote, where he said: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.” Consciousness continues in an alternate universe image: Getty As such, when our physical bodies die, the energy of our consciousness – which scientists do not fully understand yet – could continue on a quantum level. Dr Lanza says that “there are an infinite number of universes, and everything that could possibly happen occurs in some universe”. As a result, he theorises that the consciousness continues to exist in a parallel universe. Dr Lanza points to the uncertainty principle – a 1927 theory from German physicist Werner Heisenberg which says that the velocity and position of an object can be measured at the same time. snip picture The scientist stated in an article he penned for Huffington Post: “Consider the uncertainty principle, one of the most famous and important aspects of quantum mechanics. Experiments confirm it’s built into the fabric of reality, but it only makes sense from a biocentric perspective. “If there’s really a world out there with particles just bouncing around, then we should be able to measure all their properties. But we can’t. Why should it matter to a particle what you decide to measure? “Consider the double-slit experiment: if one ‘watches’ a subatomic particle or a bit of light pass through slits on a barrier, it behaves like a particle and creates solid-looking hits behind the individual slits on the final barrier that measures the impacts." snip http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/737474/death-an-ILLUSION-Consciousness-CONTINUES an earlier article http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/728897/LIFE-AFTER-DEATH-consciousness-continue-SOUL
