All eyes are focused on Sandy and its epic impact on US East Coast. All of you that are focused also on space weather events, probably have noticed that there is blackout of solar observing data providers.  The SDO, SOHO, STEREO and helioviewer sites are all offline. Websites are being taken offline for immediate access during the east coast storm. Goddard Space Flight Center is in the metro DC area, which will experience significant storm impact.

However, all solar data is still being recorded. Current space weather conditions are still being monitored by the GOES spacecraft.

X-ray levels recorded by NOAA/SWPC at Boulder, Colorado are showing quiet conditions but latest few days we could see some activity. Large solar flares could be observed. However, although they looked spectacular, there were no M-class or even bigger C-class recorded on its charts.

Occupy Savvy

This week we have witnessed, in many cases live, the unfolding of one of the largest hurricanes in recorded history.

#Sandy on Twitter has been aflame with live updates from citizens reporting from countless locations.

Major portions of the online communications infrastructure and social media channels of Occupy, Anonymous and other activism movements globally, have been consumed by spreading disaster preparedness and safety information to the unwitting who may be unaware of the extent of the dangers that face them.

Wikileaks supporters got on board, with @Wikileaks_forum posting transit/infrastructure notice and updates.

Some Occupy volunteers set up this amazing tool for other volunteers to register services or request help, and supply a variety of ways for virtually anyone to get involved in any capacity.

In the meantime, “Hurricane Hackers”…

Local sources reported that the soldiers were deployed on all main entrances of the village, and prevented the residents from entering or leaving it.

The army invaded the village from different locations, and forced all merchants to close their shops, and attacked several residents before imposing curfew on the village.

Several armored Israeli military vehicles drove into the village’s streets, and used loudspeakers to impose curfew on the village until further notice.

In related news, Palestinian medical sources in Hebron, in the southern part of the West Bank, reported Monday that Israeli soldiers violently attacked a Palestinian man and…

In two identical letters directed to the Chairman of the UN Security Council and UN Secretary General, the Syrian Foreign Ministry, on Monday, stressed that the failure of the UN Security Council to condemn the bombing in Daf al-Shouk has encouraged terrorists to continue committing crimes against the Syrian people.

In the two letters which the Ministry demanded by issued as official Security Council and UN General Assembly documents under counter-terrorism articles, the Ministry said that on Monday October 29, 2012, a car bomb explosion shook a neighborhood in the town of Jarmana south of Damascus, resulting in the death of 11 citizens and injuring over 20, in addition to causing grave material damage to buildings.

The letters said that this bombing took place in a town where Syrian Muslims and Christians of various sects coexist, and that it is one of the devastating bombings that took place in Syria…

The Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology published a study in September titled “Metal Contamination and the Epidemic of Congenital Birth Defects in Iraqi Cities.”

The study, which was funded by the University of Michigan’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, examines the prevalence of birth defects in the Iraqi cities of Basra and Fallujah, both of which experienced heavy fighting during the worst days of the Iraq war. As originally noted by US analyst David Isenberg, the study found an “astonishing” increase in the number of birth defects in a Basra maternal hospital when compared to before the war.

From October 1994 to October 1995, there were 1.37 birth defects at al- Basrah Maternity Hospital per 1,000 live births. By 2003, at the beginning of the war, the number of birth defects skyrocketed to 23 per 1,000 live births — a 17-fold increase. Then…

IOF arrests 7 Palestinians including a woman and 3 children

AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The occupation authorities arrested last night and Tuesday morning, seven Palestinians in al-Khalil; including three children, a woman and her son.

Informed sources in the town of Beit Ummar, north of al-Khalil, reported this morning that an Israeli force surrounded a house owned by the citizen Wahid Hamdi Abu Maria, 45, accompanied by a big bulldozer and started demolishing part of the house while the family members were inside it.

Eyewitnesses stated that the Israeli soldiers transferred Abu Maria, blindfolded, to Etzion camp when clashes erupted, in the area, between Israeli soldiers and angry young residents.

An Israeli force also stormed at dawn Tuesday the house of the liberated captive Mohammed Ahmed al-Najjar in the Fawwar refugee camp, south of al-Khalil, then arrested him after destroying and breaking the contents of his house.

Meanwhile, another occupation…

The Pentagon is working to encircle Eurasia and to surround the Eurasian Triple Entente composed of China, Russia, and Iran. For every reaction, however, there is a counter-reaction. Neither one of these three Eurasian powers will sit ideally as passive US targets. Beijing, Moscow, and Tehran are all taking their own distinct counter-measures to oppose the Pentagon’s strategy of military encirclement.

In the Indian Ocean the Chinese are developing their military infrastructure under what the Pentagon calls the Chinese “string of pearls.” Iran is going through a process of naval expansion, which is seeing it deploy its maritime forces further and further from its home waters in the Persian Gulf and Gulf and Gulf of Oman. All three Eurasian powers, along with several of their allies, also have naval vessels stationed off the shorelines of Yemen, Djibouti, and Somalia in the geo-strategically important maritime corridor…

BEIRUT, (SANA) – British MP George Galloway affirmed that the global war currently being waged on Syria is similar to the one waged against Egypt in 1956, voicing confidence that Syria will be victorious over this war under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad similar to the victory of the late Jamal Abdelnasser.

During a meeting with former Lebanese President Emil Lahhoud in Beirut on Tuesday, Galloway stressed that the Syrian leadership will not be defeated, underlining the need for the plan launched by former UN Envoy to Syria Kofi Annan to bear fruit and for countries to stop providing military support to the Syrian opposition.

I hate to jump on the “it was a conspiracy!” bandwagon all the time, yet I like to play devils advocate, so I’m a walking contradiction. I just find when you call everything a conspiracy you lose a lot credibility. Like when you tell a loved one who just got diagnosed with cancer that ingesting cannabis oil will cure them, they might take you more seriously if you hadn’t talked about RF weapons, project bluebeam, and satanic rituals in the past- not to mention the tinfoil hats and the post-it note covering your laptop cameras. Not saying that RF weapons, project bluebeam, and satanic rituals are all bullshit, but not saying that they’re 100% fact either. I just like to throw the possibilities out there since the mainstream media tends to distract the masses, stick with “the official story” with a dual perspective to perpetuate the illusion of political difference…

Hidden Agendas

I was in the Scottish Highlands recently with my family, miles from anywhere, surrounded only by the scenic distant view of mountains set upon the horizon. The sky was a deep unblemished blue, then looking into the east I noticed a metallic glint, slowly inching its way higher above the horizon traveling on a westerly course, an aircraft – a plane visually obsolete of any kind of trail – either vapour or poison. 

After passing overhead, still on its westerly course, it suddenly opened up its spraying tanks, then began to spew forth its harmful filth, destroying the illusion once and for all, that some places, perhaps, still remained immune from this outrage. And yes, the sun was only 30 minutes, or so, from setting…

SANAnsnbc. On Thursday the Syrian Foreign and Expatriates Ministry addressed two identical letters to the President of the Security Council and the UN Secretary General Ban Kyi-moon. The letters contained evidence on the involvement of foreign countries, including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, in supporting and arming terrorist groups in Syria.

In the letters, the Foreign Ministry states that these countries aiding of terrorist organizations is hindering dialog and obstructing peaceful solutions. The aiding of terrorist organizations, so Syria´s Foreign Ministry, is harming the Syrian state at material and humanitarian levels. The Ministry stated, that supporting terrorism and the arming terrorists in Syria has become overt and that it went so far as to urge others to get involved, which has been made clear in the statements of officials in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The letter continues by stating that the Ministry…

As men play with god-like powers such as weather modification, parts of the world suffer from drought and famine.

Coincidence or Not?

In some parts of the US and the world crop yields are at all time lows not seen since the 1970′s.

In fact, parts of the country have also sustained record drought levels in 2012.

SouthCoastToday.com reports;

CHICAGO — Drought damage to corn and soybean fields in the United States, the world’s top grower and exporter, is eroding supplies of the nation’s two largest crops to below year-earlier consumption levels for the first time since 1974.

The government is expected to say today that the U.S. corn harvest and inventories on Sept. 1 will be a combined 11.604 billion bushels, less than…

The New York times reported that a powerful bomb devastated a Christian neighborhood of Lebanon’s capital on Friday October 19, 2012, killing an intelligence official long viewed as an enemy by neighboring Syria and unnerving as Syria’s sectarian-fueled civil war threatened to engulf the region.

The blast which sheared off the face of buildings, killed at least eight people, wounded 80 and transformed a quiet tree-lined street in to a scene reminiscent of Lebanon’s long civil war. Within hours of the attack the Lebanese authorities said the dead included the intelligence chief of the country’s internal security service, Brig. Gen. Wissam Al-Hassan 47, spurring accusations that the Syrian government had assassinated him for recently uncovering what the authorities said was a Syrian plot to provoke unrest in Lebanon. They wanted to get him, and they got him, “said Paul Salem a…

The term ‘psychosis’ is used to describe a mental disorder in people; generally defined by Stedman’s Medical Dictionary as – ‘a mental disorder causing gross distortion or disorganization of a person’s mental capacity, affective response, and capacity to recognize reality, communicate, and relate to others to the degree of interfering with his capacity to cope with the ordinary demands of everyday life.‘

So if a person’s mental health is subjected to this ‘psychosis’ criteria why not corporations? Here is an argument that (esp. large mega-size) ‘Corporations’ have been getting by with operating under a very ‘psychotic’ state which deserves more consideration. Corporations exhibit their brand of psychosis; ‘corporate psychosis’ which is a danger to humanity our freedoms and liberties.

Many large corporations operate under rules that induce behaviors that are reflective of human psychosis. Since in the opinion of the Supreme…
