A MAJOR SOLAR FLARE CAUSING LOW NORTHERN LIGHTS.. AND A PLAN FROM OBAMA?

I have been paying a lot of attention over all of my years on this site blogging and clogging up the networks about solar flares and the like.. See evidence here (http://ift.tt/1Qar1eV) .. 

Tonight, there is a chance that northern lights will be as low as my state of Pennsylvania.. that’s a big deal. Far down here. It was a major solar flare and storm that obviously caused such an event.

And such an event could be a catastrophe..  And now timing from the Obama Administration couldn’t be more impeccable. A solar flare awareness is evident.. hopefully cool non-flared heads will prevail and this nation will advance beyond 20th century technology and insulate our grid. It would be a stunning achievement for the President–call it a new Dwight Eisenhower interstate system.. it could create jobs and maintain future economy might and security.

A failure?

That could be awful.

As FOX news reports, about the White House plan and obvious dangers:

“The efforts undertaken to achieve the objectives of this strategy will establish a national approach to the security and resilience in the face of our improved understanding of the seriousness of the space-weather risk, and the steps we must take to prepare for it,” Suzanne Spaulding, undersecretary for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s National Protection and Programs Directorate, said Thursday during an event hosted by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) that discussed the new documents.

That risk is indeed serious, many experts say. High-energy solar flares aimed at Earth can affect the operation of orbiting satellites, and the most powerful emissions can even pose a risk to astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

Of even larger concern are coronal mass ejections (CMEs), huge eruptions that send clouds of solar plasma streaking through space at millions of miles per hour. CMEs that hit Earth can spawn intense geomagnetic storms, with the potential to disrupt power grids, satellite navigation and radio communications temporarily.

In March 1989, for example, a strong CME caused a blackout that left 6 million people in the Canadian province of Quebec without power for 9 hours, OSTP Director John Holdren said during Thursday’s event, which was webcast live.

The news just so happens to coincide with a major solar storm.

All of earth should take notice.

Study MAY have found evidence of alternate and parallel universes

Study MAY have found evidence of alternate and parallel universes:

It’s all theoretical at this point.. BUT..

This from USA TODAY’s reporting:

While mapping the so-called “cosmic microwave background,” which is the light left over from the early universe, scientist Ranga-Ram Chary found what he called a mysterious glow, the International Business Timesreported.

Chary, a researcher at the European Space Agency’s Planck Space Telescope data center at CalTech, said the glow could be due to matter from a neighboring universe “leaking” into ours, according to New Scientist magazine.

“Our universe may simply be a region within an eternally inflating super-region,” scientist Chary wrote in a recent study in the Astrophysical Journal.

“Many other regions beyond our observable universe would exist with each such region governed by a different set of physical parameters than the ones we have measured for our universe,” Chary wrote in the study.

USA TODAY has a perfect way of dumbing the news down a bit so the average American can read about it.. which in this case is fine to me. It’s beyond my current comprehension. But I promised myself to learn as much about physics as I could before I die. Maybe it’s time now to start learning.

Time slips explained?

Just imagine. An alternate universe bleeding into ours.. How cool. Or scary?

Amazingly high intensity solar activity has led to this...



Amazingly high intensity solar activity has led to this potential for the week: The northern lights as low as Pennsylvania .. Amazing .. I’ll be watching from my back yard so as long as the view is good. Right now as I type his the sky is clear and the atmosphere is warm..



A reminder from the sun: We are tiny spokes in the wheel of the universe. And our grid is always in danger.



But until the end, enjoy the beautiful light show coming our way…

Russian plane victims: 'Tragedy to lose so many children'

Russian plane victims: 'Tragedy to lose so many children' :

There are now pictures being posted online of children on the flight.. Children with their innocent hands pressed against windows looking over a Tarmac of planes.. Children with innocent smiles.. Children now dead

This is horrific.

3 earthquakes hit Phoenix area; other Arizona cities shaken

3 earthquakes hit Phoenix area; other Arizona cities shaken :

More:



The first, a magnitude 3.2 quake, struck at 8:59 p.m. (10:59 p.m. ET), the U.S. Geological Survey said.



The second, a magnitude 4.1 tremor, happened at 11:29 p.m.



The third, a magnitude 4.0 quake, took place at 11:49 p.m.



Several cities in the area felt shaking.



“Ground, walls and bed shook here in South Scottsdale…twice!” Deborah Groseclose tweeted.



More reports across Facebook and Twitter indicated a widespread swath of shaking as a result of the swarm..



There is another swarm still occurring around he west coast .. And with that, my favorite earthquake predictor Dutchsinse is calling for a larger shake in the next 2-6 days..



Be alert and have a plan.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF A FALLING CHURCH

An urban legend come true?

THE AP REPORTS

By: The Associated Press

KENNETT SQUARE, Pa. – Police in suburban Philadelphia are investigating Halloween candy reportedly found with “a needle-type item” inside.

The Kennett Square police department said Sunday that such items were reportedly found inside five wrapped Twix bars given to four different children on Halloween night in the Stenning Hills area of the Chester County borough.

Police said the candy and packaging have been submitted for processing and examination and their investigation continues.

Authorities have urged parents to check all candy children are given, and people with candy left over that wasn’t handed out should also check it for possible tampering.

You may not believe it to be true, but movies of the future will...



You may not believe it to be true, but movies of the future will feature no acting.. Only robotic performances. Imagine an Oscar award given to the ‘best android’ in cinema? …The future is coming.

From the UK TELEGRAPH, some startling information that should make you question if this all is a good idea or not, this merging of human and machine..

From the report:

Meet Geminoid F. In many ways, she’s perfect for the movie business. She’s beautiful, engaging, and can carry out a director’s every request on cue.

Time after time, she replicates the same performance without the slightest fluff or fumble, and can work for weeks on end without complaint. You don’t even have to pay her. Just remember to plug her in at night so she doesn’t die on set the next day, and she’ll be fine.

Geminoid F is an android – a robot designed to look and act like a human being (although the one thing she cannot do is walk) – and the first of her kind to co-star in a film. That feels like something of a milestone, considering cinema is full of memorable android characters. But from the seductive “machine-human” Maria in Fritz Lang’s 1927 monolith Metropolis to Star Wars’ C-3PO, Blade Runner’s replicants, and the enigmatic Ava from this year’s Ex Machina, almost all have been played by flesh-and-blood actors in costumes. (The others, including Sonny from the Will Smith blockbuster I, Robot, are digital creations, brought to life with motion capture technology.)

This would appear, in my humble opinion, to simply be a natural progression of how film will evolve.. There will be no stuntmen injured.. there will be no need to re-do a scene, no human emotions that will involve egos or emotions that stop filming.. No tears, only when programmed. And yes, budgets will be adhered to and deadlines met. 

We have gone to a CGI world when it comes to movies. I think it’s only natural that we will also progress to a no-acting robotic formula for film.. 

Androids of tomorrow will not look like androids. They will look a lot like people. And we, as the humans that are left, will most likely buy it all up in the entertainment realm..

Movies..
An escape.
Robotic recreation.

NY POST REPORTS: On Oct. 24, Fallon was stitched up at a hospital in Cambridge, Mass., after falling — and dropping a bottle of J├Ągermeister — while receiving the Harvard Lampoon’s Elmer Award for Excellence in Humor. “I threw the bottle and then I landed on broken glass,” a bandaged Fallon recapped on his show the following Monday. “There [were] pools of blood everywhere.”

NY POST REPORTS: On Oct. 24, Fallon was stitched up at a hospital in Cambridge, Mass., after falling — and dropping a bottle of J├Ągermeister — while receiving the Harvard Lampoon’s Elmer Award for Excellence in Humor. “I threw the bottle and then I landed on broken glass,” a bandaged Fallon recapped on his show the following Monday. “There [were] pools of blood everywhere.”:

THE NEW YORK POST is hitting at Fallon today with rumors of his impending train wreck.

Fallon has had two strange hand injuries..

From the POST rumor mill:

It’s the party guy’s third injury in four months, and sources say NBC is worried that Fallon’s drinking has turned excessive. And while they’re not doing anything about it — yet — “It’s gone from being a whisper to a chatter,” says one industry insider of Fallon’s over-the-top behavior.

In June, the 41-year-old comedian nearly severed his finger after tripping on a rug at his luxe Gramercy Park pad and catching his wedding ring on a countertop. Prior to that injury he had been out dining and posing with wine-drinking fans at Upper East Side Italian restaurant Scalinatella.

Fame.. Fortune.. the life of luxury. It has happened to better men before Fallon.. and will again after.

Unlike the NY POST, I don’t like watching the famous fall from grace. I hope this event will not occur.. train wrecks aren’t pretty. 

Call this a sacrilege, but I am somewhat glad Halloween is over....



Call this a sacrilege, but I am somewhat glad Halloween is over. I am a bit ‘paranormaled’ out .. Perhaps of my own doing.

Perhaps it was that awful DESTINATION AMERICA exorcism show that really got me..

Either way, ghosts and goblins, take a breather.. plenty more paranormal to come–including Christmas, perhaps one of the most culturally paranormal season of them all, even without considering Krampus.

The Tragic, Forgotten History of Zombies

The Tragic, Forgotten History of Zombies:

Some fascinating information..

You know zombies well.. But where did the idea of them come from?
Not light reading.



After the Haitian Revolution in 1804 and the end of French colonialism, the zombie became a part of Haiti’s folklore. The myth evolved slightly and was folded into the Voodoo religion, with Haitians believing zombies were corpses reanimated by shamans and voodoo priests. Sorcerers, known as bokor, used their bewitched undead as free labor or to carry out nefarious tasks. This was the post-colonialism zombie, the emblem of a nation haunted by the legacy of slavery and ever wary of its reinstitution. As the UC Irvine professor Amy Wilentz has pointed out in her writing on zombies, on several occasions after the revolution Haiti teetered on the brink of reinstating slavery. The zombies of the Haitian Voodoo religion were a more fractured representation of the anxieties of slavery, mixed as they were with occult trappings of sorcerers and necromancy. Even then, the zombie’s roots in the horrors of slavery were already facing dilution.


And more..



It was in this form—Voodoo bokor and black magic—that the Haitian myth first crossed paths with American culture, in the aforementioned White Zombie.Although the film doesn’t begin to transform the undead in the way that Romero’s films and the subsequent zombie industrial complex would, it’s notable for its introduction of white people as interlopers in the zombie legend. It would take another few decades or so, but eventually the memory of Haiti’s colonialist history and the suffering it wrought—millions of Africans worked into the grave—would be excised from the zombie myth for good.
