The Extinction Protocol

August 11, 2012ALASKAA rare summer storm blasted the Arctic this week, beginning off the coast of Alaska, and moving over much of the Arctic Sea for several days before dissipating. Although the storm itself was uncommon — NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., estimates that there have only been about eight similarly strong August storms in the last 34 years — the real news behind the meteorological event is the stunning Aug. 6 photo taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. The cyclone is spinning toward the North Pole, with Greenland visible in the bottom-left of the image. Scientists are left speculating what the impact of such a storm could be. Arctic storms such as this one can have a large impact on the sea ice, causing it to melt rapidly through many mechanisms, such as tearing off large…

August 11, 2012KANSASNuclear fallout, tsunamis, zombie invasions– impending horrors are scaring the rational thinking out of even the world’s best and brightest. And for good reason. Life is risky when lived above ground. Anybody who has ever been crapped on by a pigeon knows – living with our precious heads exposed to the sky may not be worth the hazard. Hence the new, ‘location, location, location’ driven trend in underground doomsday real estate. No bunker is quite as fail proof and luxurious as Larry Hall’s Survival Condos. Buried deep below Kansas’s golden prairies, the luxury condo complex was engineered with enough tenacity to withstand everything from epic solar flares to infectious pandemics. Built into an old missile silo, the condos feature a pool, movie theater, library, a live in orthodontist and doctor, and cement walls nine feet thick to protect occupants from something as threatening as…

August 10, 2012MEXICO –The death toll attributed to the storm Ernesto rose to six on Friday although it continued to weaken as it passed through Mexico’s eastern Veracruz state. Three members of one family were killed on Thursday night when a tree fell on their pick-up truck about 60 miles southwest of Veracruz City, according to a state civil protection official. A fourth family member, a six-year-old child, was also injured in the accident. Ernesto is blamed for causing torrential rains and flooding in nearby rivers. According to local officials, three other people died earlier on Thursday — one in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, after falling while working on home repairs; and two more who drowned in next-door Tabasco state. Three major oil-exporting ports in the Gulf of Mexico were re-opened on Friday morning as the storm no longer posed a risk to ships leaving installations in Coatzacoalcos, Cayo…

August 11, 2012ECONOMYUntil recently, it was a sign of political correctness not even to consider the possibility of a euro collapse. Investment experts at Deutsche Bank –Germany’s largest bank — now feel that a collapse of the common currency is “a very likely scenario.” Germany’s second-largest bank — Commerzbank — has also flagged fears of a Eurozone collapse whilst bracing for a worsening of the euro-crisis. “The greatest downside risk remains an uncertainty shock from an escalation of the sovereign debt crisis, ie, the collapse of the monetary union,’ Commerzbank states in its latest quarterly report released this week, adding that it thought the risk was higher now than in autumn last year. Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti has also warned of the “psychological break-up” of Europe if the euro crisis is not soon resolved. Spain and Italy, the two chief trouble spots, are threatened with…

International observers are reporting 15+ meteors per hour in pre-dawn skies as Earth enters a broad stream of debris from parent comet Swift-Tuttle. The shower has been building since late July. Over the past two weeks, NASA’s All-Sky Meteor Network has recorded more than 57 Perseid fireballs. Their orbits are shown here, with Earth’s position marked in red.

August 11, 2012INDIAINS Arihant, planned to be the first of five submarines of its class, will be ready to begin sea trials, said Admiral Nirmal Verma, the navy commander. When the vessel eventually becomes operational, India will be able to launch nuclear missiles from the sea, land and air, joining a handful of countries possessing the “nuclear triad.” The strategic aim is to deter China and Pakistan and establish India as the leading power in the Indian Ocean. “INS Arihant is steadily progressing towards becoming operational,” said Adml Verma. “We are pretty close to putting it to sea.” The navy was poised to “complete the triad, and our maritime and nuclear doctrines will then be aligned to ensure our nuclear insurance comes from the sea,” added Adml Verma. “Given our unequivocal ‘no first-use commitment,’ a retaliatory strike capability that is credible and invulnerable is an imperative.”…

A group of activists have gathered in front of the American embassy in Tokyo, condemning the US nuclear bombing of Nagasaki in 1945.

They said the Japanese nation will never forget the US nuclear attacks against Hiroshima and Nagasaki as about 6,000 people gathered at a peace park near the epicenter of the 1945 blast on Thursday.

Washington sent its Ambassador John Roos to Nagasaki for the first time this year, a year after his deputy attended the ceremony.

The attack on Nagasaki came just three days after the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the western city of Hiroshima in the closing days of World War II.

The bomb attack on Hiroshima killed an estimated 140,000 people, and the one dropped on Nagasaki claimed the lives of around 70,000 victims. Yet the nuclear radiation continued to claim thousands of more lives over the following years.

Palestinians wounded in IOF crack down on protesters

RAMALLAH, (PIC)– Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired bullets and teargas canisters at Palestinian protestors near the Ofer jail west of Ramallah on Thursday.

Eyewitnesses told the PIC that a number of Palestinians were treated for breathing difficulty after the IOF soldiers used teargas intensively to disperse them.

The demonstrators were demanding the immediate release of Ibrahim Abu Hajle, who was re-arrested after his release in the Wafa Al-Ahrar prisoners’ exchange deal between Hamas and Israel in October last year, the eyewitnesses said.

They said that participants also declared solidarity with all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli occupation jails.

The Gaza Strip is inching toward a humanitarian crisis as Israel’s five year blockade of the territory has been exacerbated by a dispute over fuel supplies. Gaza’s young people are on the front line of this crisis as failing utilities like water and electricity and an inadequate diet have seen rampant rates of anaemia and diarrhoea. Meanwhile, the main provider of food, healthcare and education in Gaza, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), has come under political attack in Israel and the United States, threatening the main institution that fills the gap between poverty and utter destitution.

Hady Mattar is a five year old boy playing among hundreds of young people in Gaza’s YMCA. He is easily distinguished from his peers by his bandaged hands covering severe burns sustained at home from a domestic electricity generator. Hady, like most of Gaza’s children, is paying…

The pineal gland (also called the pineal body, epiphysis cerebri, epiphysis or the “third eye”) is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. It produces the serotonin derivative melatonin, a hormone that affects the modulation of wake/sleep patterns and seasonal functions. Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres, tucked in a groove where the two rounded thalamic bodies join.The Secret: What they don’t want you to KNOW!

Every human being’s Pineal Gland or The third eye can be activated to spiritual world frequencies and enables you to have the sense of all knowing, godlike euphoria and oneness all around you. A pineal gland once tuned into to proper frequencies with help of meditation, yoga or various esoteric, occult methods, enables a person to travel into other dimensions, popularly…

August 10, 2012NEW ZEALANDTests have revealed that magma is bubbling higher than usual in Mount Tongariro, which means further eruptions are more likely. A series of samples have been tested since the volcano’s Te Mari crater erupted on Monday night, but the latest results give the greatest insight. “We’re now convinced that the likelihood of this just being a one-off has decreased,” GNS vulcanologist Nico Fournier said. “But it doesn’t mean it’s just about to blow and go pear-shape.” The results detected sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide in the steam plume, which indicated that magma was closer to the surface than it usually was, Fournier said. It was unclear how high the magma was – it could be anything from metres to kilometres, Fournier said. If a magmatic eruption did occur then it wouldn’t necessarily be significant, he said. It could result in a lava flow…

August 10, 2012NEW ZEALAND – A floating mass of the volcanic rock, pumice, reportedly covering 25,000 square km, has been found floating in the South Pacific, indicating a third volcano is active near New Zealand. The New Zealand Defense Force (NZDF) said Friday the floating pumice, measuring 250 nautical miles long and 30 nautical miles wide, was first spotted by a New Zealand air force Orion on a maritime patrol from Samoa to New Zealand. The Orion relayed the information to New Zealand navy vessel HMNZS Canterbury, which spotted the pumice late Thursday about 85 nautical miles west southwest of Raoul Island, one of the Kermadec Islands that lie 750 to 1,000 km northeast of New Zealand. Lieutenant Tim Oscar, a Royal Australian Navy officer on exchange with the Royal New Zealand Navy, described the pumice as “the weirdest thing I’ve seen in 18 years at sea. The…

August 10, 2012FRANCEIt might look like a scene from a horror film but this is the breathtaking natural phenomenon which has met tourists at a popular French beauty spot. The stunning scenes in Camargue, southern France, may look very dramatic but are actually thought to be caused by the high levels of salt within the water. The bizarre sight was captured by photographer, Sam Dobson, from Moscow in Russia. With every small branch encrusted with salt crystals and all flora encased in white and set against the dark red background, the pictures could have been taken from the stills of a science fiction film. Mr Dobson said: ‘Every small branch is covered with crystals and with the red water as a background it looks like something extra-terrestrial.’ –Daily Mail

August 10, 2012ALASKAA 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck along the Pacific tectonic plate boundary of the Fox and Aleutian Islands of Alaska. The epicenter of the earthquake was 1422 km (884 miles) SW (236°) from Anchorage, AK and occurred at a depth of 19 km (11 miles) below the ocean floor. Seismic unrest is growing along the Alaska region and it goes without saying Alaska is destined to be struck by much larger magnitude earthquakes. –The Extinction Protocol
