Tuesday terrors


A sampling of news from around the world.. For better or worse (You know what it normally is)

For those who did not listen last night, it was an amazing and important Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, titled "Camp for the useless Eaters" .. I really recommend you give it a listen..

I was moved to true emotion and sadness this morning looking at some images from the Philippines. I saw a photo, which I will not share due to the graphic nature, of a father holding his toddler in his arms.. he was weeping. She was dead.. he was taking her to the morgue. She was the victim of this tremendous disaster that will be the storm for the record books.. I cannot fathom the thoughts of what happened here.. I also cannot explain how angry I am at American media for their selfish attitude regarding news. They cover politics as though it matters.. they feed us trivial garbage, a steady diet of nonsense that spews from their talking head mouths. I dislike them not for who they are, but for who they pretend they are.. We don't get news. Thank God for the Internet. I am going to post some links at the bottom of this update that, if you want help, you can click on and send whatever..

The situation in the Philippines has been officially designated a 'calamity' by the government there..

Bodies in the Philippines are being piled high in the streets.. I have a big fear that 10,000 dead is an understatement.. I really fear this..
Anger is rising..
Planes that are carrying important aid are grounded because they are TOO BIG to land at the disaster zone's airport..
Photos of the wrath..
Even more disaster: Earthquake rattles the area hit by superstorm Haiyan..
There are also warnings coming that mudslides may be the next disaster that will unfold for this poor people..

Once again: I was amazed this morning: Tens of thousands potentially dead in the Philippines, China lost a lot of farms from the same storm, another storm kills hundreds in Somalia.. and the top story on the big three network morning news shows? The 'cold' in the United States and the coating of snow that some people got--a coating! It's November. It gets cold. And it snows. Sometimes there's cold November rain, so say the Guns N Roses. Sometimes snow. Either way, there was no coverage of the unfolding disaster in other nations. But other nations know what goes on in America--we just don't know what goes on there.. Sickening, news media..sickening.

Sea turtles dying in Central America..

Record number of dolphins dying along the East Coast.. I have not seen any expert tie this in the with Gulf oil disaster from a few years ago.. Could this be the effects along the Atlantic coastline finally being felt?

This is the new America: Street lights shine in the night--and also watch your every move and listen to your every word..

A new look inside chicken McNuggets by a professor of medicine Richard deShazo. He described the 'food' as edible super glue, confirming may reports that the processed pieces of 'meatlike' substance is more cartilage, skeletal muscle, intestinal tissue, organ tissue, fat, blood vessels, and bone fragments than meat. And if you really want to see inside the food you're eating, here's some images and for $30 bucks, you can purchase the full medical study..

Scientists puzzled by lack of sunspots..

Painful protest: Artist Pyotr Pavlensky nails his testicles to Red Square!

A Welsh family is sick of living on Butt Hole Road. They are attempting to rename it Button Hole Road.
I myself like the Butt Hole part, maybe just rename if "Circle."

Mulder and Scully still have the sunspot case

The internet firestorm over the sudden closure of the Sunspot Solar Observatory went worldwide within the last 10 days..

As of yesterday, there was finally an official statement of some form as to why. But the statement is not going to end the rampant speculation -- these types of events get their fodder from "official statements" that fail to answer directly reasons why events occurred.The group that manages the Facebook page for the New Mexico facility say they are cooperating with on an ongoing criminal investigation..The Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy said "we became concerned that a suspect in the investigational potentially posed a threat to the safety of local staff and residents. For this reason, AURA temporarily vacated the facility and ceased science activities at this location."AURA said it was their decision to vacate...
The sheriff in town offers a different opinion, of course.. initially when the facility closed Benny House told …

Intrigue in China: Where is Fan Bingbing

From CNN:

Fan Bingbing, one of China's highest-paid and most bankable stars, has appeared in both Chinese and Western films, including the multimillion-dollar X-Men franchise. Across the country, her face once adorned thousands of advertisements, her star power used to sell a galaxy of luxury brands, from Cartier to Louis Vuitton. She was a regular sight at major award shows and fashion ceremonies. In 2015, Time Magazine named her China's "most famous actress."  But the film star hasn't been seen in public since early June, when, according to a post on her verified social-media account, she went to visit a children's hospital in Tibet. In an article by state media Securities Daily on September 6, which was later deleted, the publication said Fan had been brought "under control and about to receive legal judgment." No official statement has been made as to Fan's whereabouts, or any potential criminal charges against the actress.  However, in a country …
