I will be returning to regular articles on October 11th. God willing, I will have Seven Thunders ready by November 1st.
What is on my radar?
UN Begins Upheaval on Climate
This is major UN-UPCC Climate news please watch. Our planet is going cold.
What did I mean in my briefing Winter Cometh and why the Lord had me my button up the farm by September 1? Six to seven feet of snow is to fall in a week. That would be the first week of fall. Consider Montana a warning to you. It is happening in many other western states as well.
Volcano uptick. The muons are heating up as the Kp index falls with cosmic rays flooding the planet volcanoes are triggering, and eruptions are beginning to build in intensity, as well as the expected larger earthquakes to relieve planetary tension in Indonesia.
The Complications of Counting Casualties after Natural Disasters
There are many gray areas when collecting data on how and why people died in a disaster. A new study now underway aims to identify best practices for collecting, recording, and reporting death and illness data during and immediately after large-scale weather disasters.
Changing Weather Could Put Insurance Firms Out of Business
The fiercer storms which a changing climate produces could soon come to British shores, paralyzing trade for days. This is an example of the costs that fossil-fuel emissions may bring, The Economist writes. Insurance companies are uniquely exposed to these sorts of changes. Already, insurers are seeing disasters of unprecedented scale. Very costly disasters are becoming more frequent, while catastrophes are getting harder to predict. Above all, says The Economist, insurers need to take the lead in publicizing the growing risks posed by climate change, and the need for cover.
The technologies deployed for human identification will eventually lead to the barcoding and tracking of your blood. Rockefeller has been working on it for years in a project called Barcode of Life. Scary. I have not visited the site in maybe six months, and now they want to Illuminate Diversity to save our Living Planet, which would be bringing the angel of light into all species. Doesn't that logo in the top left look Reptilian and pure evil? But, I digress.
The Intel Community Wants to ID People from Hundreds of Yards Away [actually, they surveillance by satellite]
Face recognition alone isn't good enough, so a new IARPA program is looking to combine multiple biometric indicators to get good matches.
The intelligence community is working to build biometric identification systems that can single out individuals from hundreds of yards away or more, a feat that’s virtually impossible using the technology that exists today.
Ultimately, the tech would let spy agencies rapidly identify people using cameras deployed on far off rooftops and unmanned aircraft, according to the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, the research arm for the CIA and other intelligence agencies....
Offline surveillance by the government has grown exponentially in the past few years. One estimate found that the number of security cameras in the U.S. grew from 33 million in 2012 to 62 million in 2016. Now, a new report from Comparitech, a technology research firm, takes a count of the number of closed-circuit television cameras owned by both government and private sources in cities around the world and compares that with the city’s population to find the density of cameras.
AI and the Coming of the Surveillance State
Artificial Intelligence (AI) used to be the stuff of science fiction but is now making its presence felt in both the private and the public domains. In an important new study -- The Global Expansion of AI Surveillance Steve Feldstein of the Carnegie Endowment writes: Unsurprisingly, AIs impact extends well beyond individual consumer choices. It is starting to transform basic patterns of governance, not only by providing governments with unprecedented capabilities to monitor their citizens and shape their choices but also by giving them the new capacity to disrupt elections, elevate false information, and delegitimize democratic discourse across borders.
More Surveillance by the Police State
Cities are not the only places being surveillance. This picture was taken in maybe 2005 behind bars prohibiting people from watershed areas in Washington State. Even back then, if they caught you, a King County Sherriff [your tax dollars at work] was deployed, and you could be thrown in a secret prison for life for violating environmental mandates. It happened to me, and a few fellow mountain climbers, myself included in that number. What a shock!
Six U.S. Cities Make the List of Most Surveilled Places in the World
A new report found that CCTV surveillance is increasing in certain areas of the U.S., with one city government watching its citizens from 35,000 cameras...
Atlanta was the only place in the U.S. to crack the top ten, with 15.56 cameras per thousand residents. That may seem low compared to cities higher on the list, most of which are in China and have 39 to 168 cameras per thousand residents, but Atlanta’s rate is high by U.S. standards. The five other municipalities that made the list of the top 50 most surveilled cities in the world included Chicago, Washington D.C., San Francisco, San Diego, and Boston.
Do you have supernatural Kairosthenic Power or Time-Strength from the Living God to stand firm in the Days of Trouble?
As an avid reader, I get all wound up when I read something that has truth and comes from way out in the left field. It comes to you from the Army Mad Scientists and speaks to nations but think of it on an individual level as well.
Mad Scientist Laboratory is pleased to publish today's post by Mr. John C. Bauer, who expands our geostrategic lexicon with a new term: Kairosthenic Power. History is replete with empires, kingdom's, and nation's that once strode the world's stage with globe-girdling power and influence, yet with the inexorable march of time, have been consigned to half-forgotten shelves in dusty archives. Mr. Bauer explores the constituent elements of kairosthenic power -- enduring national strength -- and reveals the essential role that culture plays, complementing the more conventional measures of economic, political, and military clout. It begs the question, which ascendant powers today will prove enduring through the Twenty-First Century?]
Breaking: When will you go hungry? Anytime beginning NOW. Expecte much higher prices, possibly doubling just in time for Thanksgiving. Buy whatever you can or need now.
If you are not growing your food, increasingly, your chances of it being real, from the Creator is slim to none. I saw this coming back in the 1990s when in a hurry I purchased a bag of mozzarella cheese, and the next day it was bright royal purple — introducing lab dairy! The vegan movement is hell-bent on forcing you to adopt their eating practices.
Technology is driving the industry toward providing alternatives to conventionally produced food products. Dairy proteins may be the next product produced in a lab, for use in fluid “milk” production and processed dairy products like yogurt and cheese, to name a few.
Winston Churchill predicted the rise of synthetic foods in 1931.
“We shall escape the absurdity of growing a whole chicken in order to eat the breast or wing, by growing these parts separately under a suitable medium. Synthetic food will, of course, also be used in the future.”
Just in case I experience the all to common vanishing act here is the link.
Have you heard about the Earth Blobs?
Some 2,000 kilometers beneath our feet, there are enormous masses of hot mantle material that have baffled scientists for the last four decades. These blobs come to the surface, some believing the Hawaiian islands were formed by them and they act as a giant conduit between the earth, sun, and cosmos in an ethereal dance of between the heavens and earth.
The blobs, as some scientists have taken to calling them, are the length of continents and stretch 100 times higher than Mount Everest. They sit at the bottom of Earth’s rocky mantle above the molten outer core, a place so deep that Earth’s elements are squeezed beyond recognition. The blobs are made of rock, just like the rest of the mantle, but they may be hotter and heavier and hold the key to unlocking the story of Earth’s past.
Scientists first spotted the blobs in the late 1970s. Researchers had just invented a new way to peer inside Earth: seismic tomography.
Short Video on DARPA's Subterranean Challange
Facebook Portal security concerns laid bare as the company admits humans can listen in
The device, whose AI-equipped camera will follow users around the room to keep them in the frame during video calls, will be available to British consumers for the first time from Oct 15.
Combination of wood fibers and spider silk could rival plastic
First spider goats, now a plethora of products/ The perfect Hegelian Dialectic, problem-reaction-their solution
The unique material outperforms most of today's synthetic and natural materials by providing high strength and stiffness, combined with increased toughness- inspired by nature.
The researchers created a truly new bio-based material by gluing together wood cellulose fibers and the silk protein found in spider web threads. The result is a very firm and resilient material which could be used in the future as a possible replacement for plastic, as part of bio-based composites and in medical applications, surgical fibers, textile industry, and packaging.
According to Aalto University Professor Markus Linder, nature offers great ingredients for developing new materials, such as firm and easily available cellulose and tough and flexible silk used in this research. The advantage with both of these materials is that, unlike plastic, they are biodegradable and do not damage nature the same way micro-plastic do.
Ancient Civilisation and Mysteries
Here is the link.
A little dated, but interesting.
Historians and archaeologists are scratching their heads over an ancient and mysterious remote city built in the middle of the ocean - nearly 100 years after it was first discovered.
Renewed interest in the island has been sparked by satellite images, which have revealed the full extent of the region, and subject of a new documentary.
The virtually uninhabitable Nan Madol, located just off the main island of Pohnpei in Micronesia in the Pacific, is reportedly thought to have been built in the first or second century.
Who sees all the mandatory TSA invasive screenings, or are they merely to push people over their bio-accumulative radiation levels and surveillance, not necessarily for terrorists, but your health, as well.
Millions of Americans’ Medical Images and Data Are Available on the Internet. Anyone Can Take a Peek (ProPublica)
Medical images and health data belonging to millions of Americans, including X-rays, MRIs, and CT scans, are sitting unprotected on the internet and available to anyone with basic computer expertise. The records cover more than 5 million patients in the U.S. and millions more around the world. In some cases, a snoop could use free software programs — or just a typical web browser — to view the images and private data, an investigation by ProPublica and the German broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk found.
Chronic Wasting Disease Update: I saw my first Carcass Management Poster in the Swan Valley telling people that animal carcasses must be disposed of properly to avoid the spread of CWD.
What this is telling me is that because humans are the fault of everything, and this is a revenue stream disposal will become mandatory (with fees) and if you fail to comply there will be heavy consequences. Hunters be aware. This is not a local issue.
Many of us in ministry and peering into the unparalleled time in history where there may be no food production wonder, "Where will get provision?" God provided for the Children of Israel in the Wilderness with manna and Jesus provided miraculous loaves and fishes to the great multitude. When you walk in Jesus Christ your days, energy, and food will be extended for His purposes that all might come to know and glory the Name of Jesus.
8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,
9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?
10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.
11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
13 Therefore they gathered them together and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world. John 6
God Bless you from the trenches. Be safe, everyone.
