Via The Local: The billionaire founder of flatpack furniture chain Ikea has paid Swedish income tax for the first time since he left the country in 1973, according to Swedish newspaper, Dagens Nyheter. Ingvar Kamprad declared income of 17.7 million Swedish kronor ($2 million), with 1.2 million kronor coming from work, the newspaper said. The 89-year-old paid around six million kronor in taxes. In June the Bloomberg Billionaires Index listed Kamprad as the eighth wealthiest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $43.2 billion. Originally from Almhult in southern Sweden, Kamprad decided to leave his longtime home of Switzerland for his native land after the death of his wife Margaretha in 2011. The billionaire has yet to retire – Kamprad still serves on the supervisory board of Ingka Holding, Ikea's parent company. Kamprad (along with Tetra Pak heir, Hans Rausing) fled Sweden in the 1970s in protest at the wealth tax in Sweden, a move which caused huge debate in the egalitarian Nordic nation. But successive subsequent Swedish center-right governments chipped away at the country's welfare system by trimming income taxes and abolishing the wealth tax. Ikea, founded in 1943, is the number one furniture store in the world bringing in around 31.9 billion euros for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.

Via The Local: Most of the asylum seekers who were refusing to move into a holiday village in west Sweden have accepted their new temporary homes, Swedish officials have confirmed. Fourteen refugees had said that they were scared about living in the holiday park, which is in a remote area surrounded by forest, close to the Norwegian border. They refused to get off the buses that delivered to them to the park over the weekend and had been sleeping inside one of them since Sunday. On Thursday, Swedish Migration Board (Migrationsverket) officials said that most of the group had agreed to enter the holiday park and that the bus company would be able to collect its vehicles. "I have spoken with the Swedish Migration Board. I'm going to move in here. I do not want to cause problems", one of the protestors, Ahmad Assas, told the TT news agency. But he added: "I'm afraid of the dark. It is only the forest here. There are no shops, no pharmacy, no health care". "We have heard so much good about Sweden, and we are really grateful for all the help. But we are angry at the Swedish Migration Board, they lied to us about where we were going", he continued. As The Local reported on Wednesday, Migrationsverket has admitted that some of its workers may not have provided enough information to refugees about where they were heading after they boarded their transportation from Stockholm. A spokesperson for the government agency, Johanna Uhr, suggested that the refugees weren't aware that while the holiday park was in a forest, it was close to a town. "It was dark so they probably didn't think they were passing a school and shops and stuff and that's why they are scared and we understand this", she said. Her comments were echoed by Maria Löfgren, head of for Migrationsverket for the Dalarna region, on Thursday. "We must take this to heart and try to provide better information on what to expect. It is difficult, but we must do it", she told TT. Löfgren added that there had been a lot of international attention on the refugees' relocation. "Foreign media have shown great interest, I have spoken with several today". By 5pm it remained unclear where two familes who were still refusing to sleep at the holiday park would be staying.

Via Before It's News: Chinese Communist Party mouthpiece the Global Times has published an editorial asserting that Beijing is “not frightened to fight a war with the U.S.” as a result of the passage of a US warship near disputed islands in the South China Sea. The guided-missile destroyer USS Lassen violated the 12-nautical mile zone China claims around Subi and Mischief reefs in the Spratly archipelago yesterday, a move observers have described as a deliberate provocation. China responded by warning and following the vessel before China’s foreign ministry characterized the maneuvers as a “threat to China’s sovereignty”. Chinese state media outlet the Global Times said that Beijing should now “prepare for the worst” and that Beijing “is not frightened to fight a war with the U.S. in the region”. Speculation on how China should respond to future violations included sending warships out to confront U.S. destroyers. “Beijing ought to carry out anti-harassment operations. We should first track the U.S. warships. If they, instead of passing by, stop for further actions, it is necessary for us to launch electronic interventions, and even send out warships, lock them by fire-control radar and fly over the U.S. vessels”, states the editorial. The piece also asserts that the United States has no intention of starting a military conflict with China and is engaging in the provocations simply for “political show”. China’s Navy has repeatedly issued warnings to U.S. surveillance planes flying over the region. Experts have warned that an accidental collision between aircraft, similar to a 2001 incident which led to an international controversy, could spark a deadly conflict. According to Michael Auslin, a war between the two superpowers is more likely than at any point in the last 20 years. Earlier this year, billionaire investor George Soros also cautioned that the ruling Communist Party may see fit to rally its population around an external threat in order to head off a societal collapse in the aftermath of an economic implosion. “There is a real danger that China will align itself with Russia politically and militarily, and then the threat of third world war becomes real”, said Soros.

Via The Local: Roaming charges that currently mean EU mobile phone users are charged extra if they are in another member state, are finally set to be scrapped after years of wrangling. The move - which will affect Sweden and all other 28 EU members - comes after the European Parliament finally gave the green light to a ban on roaming charges in a vote on Tuesday. But Europeans living in other states will have to wait a while before their phone bills come down, with the ban not set to come into full force until June 15th 2017. The extra costs have long been at the center of a battle between EU officials backed by consumer groups, and mobile operators. Roaming charges currently vary enormously between telecoms operators and many users have ended up paying exorbitant rates -- often without knowing in advance -- to make calls when traveling within the European Union. Commission Vice-President Andrus Ansip, responsible for the Digital Single Market, said following the announcement: "Today's vote is the final result of intense efforts to put an end to roaming charges in the European Union and to safeguard the open internet". "As from mid-June 2017, Europeans will pay the same price to use their mobile devices when traveling in the EU as they do at home. And they will already pay less as from April 2016". An interim cap on the extra costs will kick in from April 30th 2016, before the full ban takes effect the year after. That cap will mean operators can only add a surcharge of no more than: - €0.05 (0.46 kronor) extra per minute for calls - €0.02 (0.18 kronor) extra per text message sent - €0.05 (0.46 kronor) extra per megabyte of data used But while the ban in theory sounds like great news for anyone with a mobile phone who likes to travel, critics have issued warnings. They say suggest any dip in profits for the mobile phone companies will simply push up prices of mobile phone contracts in general.

Via The Local: Hundreds gathered in Trollhättan on Sunday to observe a moment of silence at 2 pm to remember the victims of last week’s school attack that took the lives of a student, a teaching assistant and the attacker himself. Many of those taking part stood with heads bowed. The sun shone over the improvised memorial square and in the distance, the sound of church bells could be heard. Family members of the 20-year-old teaching assistant who was killed, Lavin Eskandar, were among those gathered. "He saved your children, be proud of him", said the slain man's mother. "We are all Swedes", Eskandar's cousin added. "We must stick together and teach our children what really matters". The initiative for the period of silent reflection came from Robin Mashallah, who is from Trollhättan and knows several people who work at the school. Members of his family also know Eskandar's family. “It’s my way of showing solidarity”, he told the Metro newspaper. “I want to show compassion”. He organized it via a Facebook event page. As of Sunday morning, 259.000 people had said they would participate. On Thursday, 21-year-old Trollhättan native Anton Lundin Pettersson rampaged through the Kronan school in the city, stabbing two people to death and seriously wounding two others before being fatally shot by police. Authorities are calling it a racist hate crime. Many of the school’s students are immigrants and Pettersson methodically attacked dark-skinned individuals. The attack shocked Sweden, where school attacks are very rare. “A tragedy has hit Sweden and all of our thoughts go to the victims at the Kronan school in Trollhättan. Therefore we should hold a moment of silence for all who are affected to show solidarity with our fellow human beings”, it said on the Facebook event page. Mashallah is active in the Social Democratic Youth League, but says there was no political or religious purpose behind the moment of silence on Sunday. In addition, the youth wing of Sweden’s Left Party has organized an event for Sunday afternoon in Trollhättan. Nearly 4.000 people have registered their participation in the demonstration that will begin with a torchlight procession. There will also be a stage where people can express their thoughts and feelings about the attack. The Kronan school is still closed and it is uncertain when it will reopen.

Via Before It's News: Scientists at NASA and elsewhere are predicting that the world will soon face serious food shortages because of a warming planet, which means it simply will be too hot and too dry to raise crops in many places. “If we continue on our current course, it’s going to be hard to feed this planet because it’s so hot”, Ellen Stofan, NASA’s chief scientist, told Business Insider. Stofan based her statement on recent NASA satellite images and studies showing that the number of places on Earth where it is too hot to grow food has been growing dramatically in recent decades. Food shortages are possible because at temperatures above 95 degrees Fahrenheit, photosynthesis becomes difficult and eventually stops, Stofan said. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert sunlight into chemical energy – food for the plants. Are You Ready For The Coming Food Riots? Data from NASA satellites — seen in the video below — indicates that many regions of the world are becoming too hot to raise crops. Stofan has spent years studying Venus, which has an atmosphere similar to a greenhouse and traps heat. Collapse of Global Society Predicted Others have reached the same conclusion. “The results show that … the global food supply system would face catastrophic losses, and an unprecedented epidemic of food riots”, Aled Jones, the director of the Global Sustainability Institute at Anglia Ruskin University, told Insurge Intelligence. “In this scenario, global society essentially collapses as food production falls permanently short of consumption”. Jones was speaking about a new report his organization prepared on the future of food. The report predicts that society will collapse by the year 2040 due to a worldview food shortage. Is Syria Our Future? A preview of how droughts and food shortages can cause a society to collapse is already taking place in Syria. A study published in The Proceedings of the National Academy Sciences in March claims that a drought in that region helped provoke the civil war that has devastated the nation. Syria suffered what scientists consider the worst drought in that country in modern times. During the drought, up to 85 percent of the nation’s livestock died and around 1.5 million people lost their farms and were forced to move to cities, where there was no work for them. This led to revolts against Bashar Al-Assad which eventually gave rise to all-out civil war, the report said. Around 200.000 people have died in the war, and 6 million more have been driven from their homes. It would be not only nice, but it is necessary, the politicians and religious organizations in the affected regions have the courage to tell people to have maximum one child per family, before it's too late.

Via Before It's News: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF I TOLD YOU THERE IS AN ENTIRE RACE OF BEINGS LIVING INSIDE THE EARTH? Yes, you may have heard of “Hollow Earth Theory” before, but what if I told you it was real, and the U.S. Government was all over it? What are the beings that live inside the earth? Ancient Aliens? Fallen Angels? Demons? Illuminate? Nazi’s? What did Admiral Richard Byrd see in the South Pole? Why did Adolf Hitler feel they could find Shangri La at the North Pole? What is the truth behind “Operation High Jump”? Where they really searching for a place to set up a military base? or was America really looking for the New Nazi base? The Hollow Earth hypothesis proposes that the planet Earth either is entirely hollow or otherwise contains a substantial interior space. The scientific community has dismissed the notion since at least the late 18th century. The concept of a hollow Earth recurs many times in folklore and as the premise for subterranean fiction, a sub-genre of adventure fiction. It is also featured in some present-day pseudoscientific and conspiracy theories. In ancient times, the concept of a subterranean land inside the earth appeared in mythology, folklore and legends. The idea of subterranean realms seemed arguable, and became intertwined with the concept of “places” of origin or afterlife, such as the Greek underworld, the Nordic Svartálfaheimr, the Christian Hell, and the Jewish Sheol (with details describing inner Earth in Kabalistic literature, such as the Zohar and Hesed L’Avraham). The idea of a subterranean realm is also mentioned in Tibetan Buddhism belief, according to one story there is an ancient city called Shamballa which is located inside the earth.

Via The Local: Sweden is reaching maximum capacity for accepting refugees, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said as he visited a center for asylum seekers in Trelleborg. Trelleborg in southern Sweden is one of several municipalities that have warned they are struggling to cope with the record-high flow of refugees to the Nordic country. The small coastal town is currently experiencing its biggest influx of refugees to date, with several thousand people turning up every week since the start of September, according to authorities. "[It warms my heart] when I see the work being carried out. It makes me warm and proud to be Prime Minister in Sweden", the Social Democrat leader, who is a vocal supporter of accepting refugees fleeing war in Africa and the Middle East, told reporters as he visited an asylum reception center in the town on Wednesday. His comments came as Sweden's Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) revealed that almost 99.000 people have so far launched asylum cases in 2015. And Löfven admitted that the Nordic country may no longer be able to continue its high rate of receiving refugees. "The work being carried out is fantastic, but at the same time it expresses what we know, that we are approaching the limit of our reception capacity", he said. He did not, however, comment on rumours emerging in Sweden on Wednesday that the government and five other mainstream parties are mulling the introduction of border checks to stem the influx. Löfven's ruling Social Democrat-Green coalition is set to meet with representatives from the Left Party, the Moderates, Liberals, Center Party, and the Christian Democrats on Thursday to continue discussion attempting to reach a cross-bloc agreement on the refugee crisis. Meanwhile, with Sweden's first tent camp for refugees expected to be ready in a couple of weeks, authorities are searching the country for more spots where similar accommodation could be set up. Home Affairs Minister Anders Ygeman spoke to a large crowd of reporters while on a separate visit to Revingehed - another town in southern Sweden - on Wednesday, where the first 75 heated tents are set to be erected to provide temporary homes for asylum seekers arriving in the Nordic country. "I think this works pretty well. It's not intended to be a lifelong solution but housing for a short period of time. But it's good that it's warm and tidy", he said after inspecting five tents set up to give him and media an idea of how the camp could look. In the meantime, the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) said it was working to find more locations where similar camps could be set up. "The government has tasked us with, together with other authorities, look at land, project planning, and estimation of costs to see if we could put up more tents in suitable locations in Sweden. That work is currently under way", MSB director general Helena Lindberg told the TT newswire.
Via Before It's News: An extraordinary report prepared by the Military Scientific Committee of the Armed Forces (MSC) on the just completed trials of the Almaz-Anteyhigh energy laser directed energy weapon system project by the 27th Central Research Institute (27-CRI) states that their “immediate dispersement” to Federation allies India, China and Brazil is needed to defend our planet against “inter-dimensional entities” who could soon attempt to recapture Earth. Important to note about this report are that the references to “inter-dimensional entities” contained in it date back to the Great Patriotic War (World War II) when then Soviet intelligence services confirmed the German Nazi regimes existing “communication link” with what can only be described as “fallen angels/demons”, but which our planets oldest written records refer to as the “gods”. These “fallen angels/demons”, this report explain, were once vanquished from our Earth about 5-6.000 years ago in what was then referred to by the ancients as “the great overturning” that nearly instantly froze millions of wooly mammoths of Siberia, destroyed the vast city-state known as Atlantis, and is recorded in the stories, religions and legends of all of our planets peoples as “the great flood”. Most importantly, however, to have been destroyed in “the great overturning”, this report continues, was the main geographical area inhabited on the Earth by these “fallen angels/demons” located from the Indian subcontinent, through the Himalayan mountain range to what is present day Ukraine, and whose human offspring were known as the Aryan race. The two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the Mahabharata and theRamayana, this report explains, fully details the interactions of these “fallen angels/demons” with the Aryan race including the use of their Vimana air/space vehicle described as “an apparatus which can go by its own force, from one place to place or globe to globe”. Verifying this incredible ancient claim of the power of the Vimana to not only transverse our own planet, but those of others too, this report says, can be found in the symbol of these “fallen angels/demons” called the Swastikabeing discovered all over Earth, including prior to World War II when the soldiers of the United States 45th Infantry Division proudly wore this symbol prior to rise of Nazi Germany. In fact, this report notes, the earliest known object with Swastika-motifs is a bird from the tusk of a mammoth from the Paleolithic settlement of Mezine, Ukraine dated to 10.000 BC, and its ancient use has also been discovered in the Mississippian-era sites in the Ohio and Mississippi River valleys, the Hopi and Navajo Indians of North America and among the Celts, ancient Germans, Finns…and too many other worldwide cultures to mention in just one article. To our human race reconnecting with these “fallen angels/demons”, this report says, appears to have occurred in the 16th century when a brilliant new star appeared on the sky in early November 1572, and which we now know to have been Tycho’s Supernova occurring in the constellation Cassiopeia and which was one of about eight supernovae visible to the naked eye in historical records. More critical to note about the Tycho Supernova, MSC experts in this report state, is that it also appeared to cause an “inter-dimensional rift” allowing humans to once again communicate with the “fallen angels/demons” who had previously been expelled from our planet, the most important of whom was the personal astrologer-sorcerer to England’s Queen Elizabeth I, John Dee. From the historical records from the 16th century about Dee and his assistants contact with these “fallen angels/demons” we can further read: “Dee would perform ritual invocations of the angels, and Kelley would stare into a scrying mirror or crystal ball, wherein a series of angels appeared, transmitting prophecies, instructions and furious pronouncements on the spiritual nature of mankind. The angels were not charitable. Raging at the fallen state of humanity, who have only become progressively worse since being sent East of Eden, they consistently liken humans to “harlots”—not in the sexual sense, but in the sense that they weakly allow their attentions to be captivated by literally anything except God. Over years of actions, the angels described the ordering of the cosmos; a series of instructions for ritual invocations; predictions of apocalypse and events to come in European politics; and, finally, the Angelic or “Enochian” language, which they explained was the ur-language of humanity, spoken before the Fall of Adam. For Dee, this was not magic, but religion — he supplicated himself to the angels totally. Kelley, though, was terrified of the spirits, considering them demons and constantly begging Dee to cease the sessions. Dee insisted on pushing ahead, overworking Kelley to exhaustion and keeping him virtually prisoner at Mortlake. The angels, for their part, detested Kelley, clocking immediately that he had previously engaged in demonic grimoire magic, and quickly became exasperated with both Dee and Kelley. Though Dee may have been the smartest member of the species, he was still perceived as an inconsequential gnat by the angelic hyper-intelligences — particularly when Dee and Kelley began begging them for money (Kelley even asked if the angels could loan him money!). But for all of Dee and Kelley’s embarrassing lack of evolution, they would have to do, because the angels had a plan, and Dee and Kelley were on the hook. Put simply, the angels wanted nothing less than a New World Order, run by divine principles, and proposed what must be one of the most dangerous ideas in Western history: A world religion, based on love and unity — a supra-Christianity or Terminal Monotheism which would not only reunite Catholicism and Protestantism but even Judaism and Islam into a fused whole; all made possible, of course, by the technology the angels had provided for direct individual contact with the spiritual agents of God instead of relying on terrestrial authority or scripture. Combined with the foundation Dee had already laid for a temporal New World Order under Elizabeth, this new religion would unite the souls of the entire globe, fusing all humanity into one State, and one Church, all directed by the angels themselves — the New Jerusalem. So fervent were the angels that they commanded Dee and Kelley to present themselves to the court of Rudolf II, the Holy Roman Emperor, tell him he was possessed by demons, and command him to heed the angelic message. This was a death sentence — but Dee and Kelley, shockingly, made good on it. Rudolf ignored them, but the Papal nuncio did not, and plotted their destruction. The Church, it seems, took Dee and Kelley’s claims seriously — perhaps as a threat to their very existence. Humans talking to God without scriptural or institutional mediation was not on the menu”. To the evidence of the success of England under the direction/guidance of these “fallen angles/demons”, this report says, cannot be denied as it began the British Empire on which “the sun never set”, that is until the end of the 20th century when upon the death of Queen Victoria, in 1901, the German House of Hanover (of which Queen Victoria headed) disseminated their “occult knowledge” throughout all of the royal houses of Europe. What began then, this report grimly notes, was a century of wars “deliberately initiated and controlled” by these “fallen angels/demons” intent upon total destruction so as to establish their one world religion, the most destructive being World War II. Causing World War II to be so destructive, this report continues, was the German Nazis successful establishment of an inter-dimensional transport/communication device called Die Glocke (The Bell) allowing for the first time since 1561 a Vimana air/space craft to appear on Earth in 1937. The previous attempt of these “fallen angels/demons” to reintroduce their Vimana air/space crafts on Earth since “the great overturning”, this report notes, occurred on 14 April 1561 when John Dee traveled to Nuremberg, Germany and using the “occult mechanisms” he had been taught by these entities caused to erupt a furious sky battle witnessed by all of the residents of the city, and in which the “fallen angels/demons” were defeated. By 1937, though, this report says, an intact Vimana air/space craft was not only in the hands of the German Nazis, they were able to start duplicating it resulting in what are now referred to as the “foo fighters”, a term used by Allied aircraft pilots to describe various UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over both the European and Pacific theaters of operations. Even after World War II, MSC experts in this report say, the Nazi Germans remaining “foo fighters”, along with the Die Glocke “device”, were secreted to Antarctica where they remain today, and attested to by numerous high-ranking present and former Russian military officials. To how great of a danger our planet is in due to these “fallen angels/demons” reappearing with their Vimana air/space crafts, this report warns, is evidenced by the mysterious 9 December 2009 event called the “Norway Spiral” where a fantastical otherworldly spiral appeared in the night sky over both Norway and Sweden and which the ancients of people of our planet had all recorded was sign that always preceded the arrival of the “gods”. Equally as critical to note about the 2009 “Norway Spiral”, MSC experts state, is that within days of it occurring “dozens, if not more” mysterious crafts began erupting from deep beneath Siberia leaving massive craters and hurtling into space with one of them being tracked this week where it has taken up an orbit around our Sun. As President Putin this past August (2014) classified as a “Potential National Threat” any news/information relating to these mysterious crafts erupting from beneath Siberia, this report does note…however, it further states that what is now called the Chelyabinsk meteor event of 15 February 2013, that exploded with 20–30 times more energy than was released from the atomic bomb detonated at Hiroshima, was (based on orbital trajectory) in actuality an “apparent attack” against the Siberian region where these mysterious crafts are being launched from, and was “exactly like” the 30 June 1908 meteor attack upon this same region that is now called the Tunguska event. Also, and perhaps most disturbingly, this report concludes, US-EU attempts to demonize President Putin and embroil Russia in war are, in fact, “an elaborate masquerade” designed so that these Western powers can overrun Siberia to destroy/dismantle what by all appearances seems to be an ancient defense system designed to protect our planet from these “fallen angel/demons” who are now in league with, if not outright controlling, nearly all of the Western nations on Earth. And finally, though not exactly referred to in this MSC report, Western scientists appear to be preparing their citizens for what is to come by publishing many scientific papers this past year proving that parallel worlds exist and interact with our world, a position, mind you, first stated by the renowned French scientist and UFO researcher Jacques Vallée, who decades ago warned that what are commonly called aliens from other worlds may, in fact, be fallen angels and demons.

Via The Local: Plans to welcome 150 asylum seekers to the northern town of Umeå are being kept under the wraps after a series of suspected arson attacks on refugee centers across Sweden. Police have stepped up their presence at asylum centers in Sweden after three buildings earmarked for refugee accommodation were burned to the ground in suspected arson attacks in less than a week. Now Umeå in northern Sweden is preparing to take in 150 asylum seekers, but the local authority does not want to disclose where they are going to be housed, out of fear of similar attacks. "After the past week's fire incidents in southern Sweden I don't think it's okay to expose the addresses. The risk is that thugs decide to burn down the premises here as well", Ewa Klingfors, director of Umeå council's social services, told Västerbottens-kuriren. Police are still investigating a suspicious fire at an old school building earmarked for asylum accommodation in Onsala south of Gothenburg over the weekend, just days after another two hubs were burned to the ground in Ljungby and Arlöv in southern Sweden. "The investigation continues and we're continuing interrogations. We have no suspects", police spokesperson Cecilia Bergsten told the TT news agency about the Onsala fire. With Sweden taking in record number of refugees and even setting up a tent camp to deal with some of the new arrivals, Sweden's Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) recently sent out a nationwide appeal for businesses and local councils to provide shelter as winter sets in. Over the weekend, hundreds arrived at the world's most northerly ski resort in Lapland, while sports halls, theaters, and disused schools around the country have also been transformed into temporary homes. A total of 95.430 people have launched asylum cases so far in 2015, according to fresh figures from Migrationsverket. Almost 10.000 have arrived since last Monday when Sweden surpassed a previous record set in 1992 of 84.016 people seeking sanctuary in the Nordic nation following fighting in the Balkans.

Via Before It's News: The biggest cover-up of all time is the fact that there is a civilization of people living in the center of Earth, whose civilization’s name is known as “Agartha” (variations: ‘Agharta’ & ‘Aghartha’). This may be hard for some of you to believe. I know it was for me at first, however, I now have an absolute knowingness of the truth of this. To begin with, the Buddhists, in their theology fervently believe in its existence. They believe it to be a race of super men and women who occasionally come to the surface to oversee the development of the human race. They also believe that this subterranean world has millions of inhabitants and many cities, and their capital is Shamballa. The Master of this world was believed to have given orders to the Dalai Lama of Tibet, who was his terrestrial representative. His messages were being transmitted through certain secret tunnels connecting this inner world with Tibet. The famous Russian channel, Nicholas Roerich, who was a channel for the Ascended Master, El Morya, claimed that Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, was connected by a tunnel with the inner earth, Shamballa. The entrance of this tunnel was guarded by lamas who were sworn to secrecy. A similar tunnel was believed to connect the secret chambers at the base of the great pyramid at Giza, and Agartha. The Indian epic, the Ramayana and the Bhagavad Gita are the two most famous texts of India. The Ramayana tells the story of the great Avatar Rama. The Bhagavad Gita tells the story of Krishna. The Ramayana describes Rama as an “emissary from Agartha”, who arrived on an air vehicle. This is quite extraordinary in that both the Buddhist and Hindu religions separately refer to Agartha. The first public scientific evidence occurred in 1947 when Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd of the United States Navy flew directly to the North Pole and instead of going over the pole, actually entered the Inner Earth. In his diary with other witnesses, he tells of entering the hollow interior of the Earth, and traveling 1700 miles over mountains, lakes, rivers, green vegetation and animal life. He tells of seeing monstrous animals resembling the mammoth of antiquity moving through the underbrush. He eventually found cities and a thriving civilization. His plane was finally greeted by flying machines, the type he had never seen before. They escorted him to a safe landing place and he was graciously greeted by emissaries from Agartha. After resting, he and his crew were taken to meet the Ruler of Agartha. They told him that he had been allowed to enter Agartha because of his high moral and ethical character. They went on to say that ever since the United States had dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, they had been very concerned for their own safety and survival. They had decided that it was time to make greater contact with the outside world to make sure we didn’t destroy this planet and their civilization with it. They had been allowed in for this express purpose, as a way of making contact with someone they trusted. To make a long story short, Admiral Byrd and his crew, upon their visit, were guided by their hosts in their plane back to the outer world, and their lives were changed forever. In January, 1956, Admiral Byrd led another expedition to the Antarctic and/or the South Pole. In this expedition he and his crew penetrated for 2.300 miles into the center of Earth again. Admiral Byrd states that the North and South Pole are actually two of many openings to the center of Earth. I can’t but help think about Jules Vernes famous science fiction book, “Journey to the Center of the Earth”, which many of you may have read or watched the movie version movie. Admiral Byrd also states Inner Earth has an inner Sun. Admiral Byrd’s theory is that the poles of the Earth are convex, rather than concave. Ships and planes can actually fly or drive right in. The American press announced Admiral Byrd’s discovery, however it was immediately suppressed by our good friends, the Secret Government. Ray Palmer, the editor of “Flying Saucer Magazine” did a detailed story on Admiral Byrd’s discovers. The United States Government either bought, stole or destroyed almost every copy and then destroyed the plates at the printing press. I have been told that the exact same thing happened in respect to an article done on Admiral Byrd’s discovery by the “National Geographic”. The magazine was released and the U.S. Government gobbled up almost every issue. If the story wasn’t true how come the Government was so uptight? Another interesting fact is that the United States Government does not let planes fly over the poles. All flights are directed to go around the Poles, and any airline pilot flying in these areas will tell you this. Another interesting phenomena is the fact that the icebergs are composed of fresh water and not salt water that drift from the Poles. Another interesting question is why it is warmer nearer the Poles than it is 600 to 1000 miles away from it. In Dr. Raymond Bernard’s book called “The Hollow Earth” he tells of a man who confirmed Admiral Byrd’s story. Dr. Nephi Cotton of Los Angeles reported that one of his patients, a man of Nordic descent, told him the following story: “I lived near the Arctic Circle in Norway. One summer my friend and I made up our minds to take a boat trip together and go as far as we could into the North country. So we put a months worth of food provisions in a small fishing boat and set to sea. “At the end of one month we had traveled far into the north, beyond the Pole and into a strange new country. We were much astonished at the weather there. Warm, and at times at night it was almost too warm to sleep. Then we saw something so strange that we were both astonished. Ahead of the warm open sea we were on what looked like a great mountain. Into that mountain at a certain point that ocean seemed to be emptying. Mystified, we continued in that direction and found ourselves sailing into a vast canyon leading into the interior of the Earth. We kept sailing and then we saw what surprised us… a Sun shining inside the Earth. “The ocean that had carried us into the hollow interior of the Earth gradually became a river. This river led, as we came to realize later, all through the inner surface of the world from one end to the other. It can take you, if you follow it long enough, from the North Pole clear through to the South Pole. “We saw that the inner surface of the Earth was divided, as the other one is, into both land and water. There is plenty of sunshine and both animal and vegetable life abounds there. We sailed further and further into this fantastic country, fantastic because everything was huge in size as compared with things on the outside. Plants are big, trees gigantic and finally we came to giants. “They were dwelling in homes and towns, just as we do on the Earth surface, and they used a type of electrical conveyance like a mono-rail car, to transport people. It ran along the river’s edge from town to town. “Several of the Inner Earth inhabitants, huge giants, detected our boat on the river, and were quite amazed. They were, however, quite friendly. We were invited to dine with them in their homes, and so my companion and I separated, he going with one giant to that giant’s home and I going with another giant to his home. “My gigantic friend brought me home to his family and I was completely dismayed to see the huge size of all the objects in his home. The dinner table was colossal. A plate was put before me and filled with a portion of food so big it would have fed me abundantly an entire week. The Giant offered me a cluster of grapes and each grape was as big as one of our peaches. I tasted one and found it far sweeter than any I had ever tasted outside. In the interior of the Earth all the fruits and vegetables taste far better and more flavorsome than those we have on the outer surface of the Earth. “We stayed with the Giants for one year, enjoying their companionship as much as they enjoyed knowing us. We observed many strange and unusual things during our visit with these remarkable people, and were continually amazed at their scientific progress and inventions. All of this time they were never unfriendly to us, and we were allowed to return to our own home in the same manner in which we came… in fact, they courteously offered their protection if we should need it for the return voyage”. Another different account about a visit to the hollow Earth was cited by another Norwegian by the name of Olaf Jansen, and was recorded in a book called “The Smoky God”, written by Willis George Emerson. The term “Smoky God” refers to the Central Sun in the hollow interior of the Earth which is smaller and less brilliant than our outer Sun, of course, and hence appears as smoky.
Via Sputnik: Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to the U.S. Secretary of State, argued that the U.S. is losing its importance as a world power. According to him, the use of mercenaries instead of regular soldiers has always been typical for the decline of an empire, DWN reported. Wilkerson believes that the future of the U.S. military power looks very pessimistic. In his speech to students at Lone Star College in Kingwood, Texas he said that shortly before their demise, empires concentrate on the use of military force as the alpha and omega of their power. According to Wilkerson, empires also start to use mercenaries instead of regular soldiers when they are about to collapse. This was the case in Syria, when the US financed rebels and contributed to the deterioration of the situation. The newspaper wrote that Wilkerson’s statements are similar to those of former US diplomat Cullen Murphy, the author of the book "Are we Rome?". Like Wilkerson, Murphy wrote that disinterest of a world power in the rest of the world is a typical sign of its decay. The U.S. media has begun to criticize the U.S. military’s activities as well and talk about the end of the U.S.’ hegemony.

Via Before It's News: There’s a Japanese legend that says that once upon a time there was a man who inherited a very valuable knowledge from his father – about Zu San Li, “the point of longevity” or “the point of a hundred diseases”. Following his father’s advice, this man massaged this point everyday and lived to see the births and deaths of several emperors. Massaging this point is one of the oldest methods of treatments in the East, which has been practiced for several thousand years. The human body has 365 points and 12 major meridians, which is reminiscent of the amount of days and months in a year. The technique for this massage (acupressure, finger pressure on specific points) is based on the teachings of the meridians and channels that are associated with certain organs. In Chinese medicine, the body is seen as an energy system, and a massage can affect the energy flow and the functional activity of the organs. Activating the point Zu San Li will give you a rejuvenating and healing effect and will prevent aging. In China, this point is known as – “a point of longevity”, and in Japan – “a point of hundred diseases”. On our bodies, Zu San Li is located right beneath the kneecap. To find it, cover the knee with the palm of the same hand. The point is located between the nails of the little and ring finger, in a form of a small dent between the bones. If you can’t find it this way, try sitting on the floor with your feet firmly pressed to the floor. Pull them toward you, without raising your feet off of the floor. You will notice a higher area below the knee – put your finger on it and take a starting position. The point you pressed with your finger is Zu San Li. What is this point connected to and why do the Japanese call it “the point of a hundred diseases”? Zu San Li controls the work of the organs that are located in the lower half of the body. It controls the functions of the spinal cord in the parts that are responsible for proper functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, digestive tract, sexual organs, kidneys, adrenal glands. By massaging Zu San Li, you will increase the activity of the adrenal glands, which are the most powerful glands that act as the main protectors of human health. They excrete adrenaline, hydrocortisone and other important hormones into the blood. If you massage the “point of longevity” on a daily basis, you could normalize the functions of the adrenal glands in the body, which are: normalization of blood pressure; normalization of glucose, insulin levels; suppression of inflammatorily processes in the body; regulation of the immune system. Other benefits from massaging Zu San Li are: improved digestion; treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract; treating the consequences of a stroke; gaining confidence; overcoming stress and tension; and inner stability. It is considered that by massaging this point, a person can cure impotence, hiccups, constipation, gastritis, and urinary incontinence. It is also believed that this massage will improve the immune system, and that the person will become fit and healthy for life. This massage is best when done in the morning, before lunch. Massage each leg nine times in a circular motion in a clockwise direction, for about 10 minutes. Before you start, make yourself comfortable and relaxed. Calm your breathing and concentrate on your feelings. Do the massage in a seated position. Immerse yourself in a state of harmony and let your healing process begin. This massage has a stimulating effect. You can massage yourself with your fingers or with any type of grain cereals (buckwheat, oats, rice, etc.) They say that if a person performs the massage in the evening, they will lose 400 – 500 grams per week. Be careful not to perform the massage right before going to bed because it may cause insomnia. You can massage the Zu San Li point every day, but it is especially beneficial if you massage it during the New Moon. – Be sure to massage this point in the morning, eight days after the start of the New Moon, as described above. It will strengthen your immunity, improve the work of the organs and slow down the aging process. – Massaging the point before lunch will improve your memory, the work of your cardiovascular and digestive system. – You can massage both legs simultaneously after lunch to relieve stress, nervousness, irritability, headaches and sleep disorders. – In the evening, massage your legs separately in a counterclockwise direction. This will improve your metabolism and help you with weight loss.
Via Disclose.tv: In January 2015, I began receiving reports by email, telephone and over Facebook of very specific symptoms from very specific locations under very specific spraying activity throughout Oregon. From my experience as a counselor, having had to do an internship for drug rehabilitation many long years ago, I instantly recognized that the symptoms were being caused, almost certainly, by lithium intake. How could so many people be suddenly dosed up on lithium? For three years, up until July 2015 the small towns on the south coast of Oregon: Reedsport, Bandon, Brookings as well as the Klamath Basin and Rogue Valley’s small towns are being used to test lithium and psychoactive compounds on a regular schedule and have been used for such for the last three years. The experiment over the small towns in Oregon seems to have been successful and is now being used all along the west coast of the U.S. Without a doubt the rest of the world will experience the use of this technique very soon. Lithium (Li) is the softest of all metals and is an alkali metal. It is relatively inexpensive to mine as it is fairly common. Lithium, refined, is highly reactive and flammable. Lithium will ignite and burn in oxygen when exposed to water or water vapors. It is HIGHLY conductive of both heat and electricity, which is why it is used in batteries. This is why it is now being widely used in geoengineering, to increase electric conductivity, as a dessicant (drying agent) and to increase volatility in forest fires. Without any regard as to its extreme toxicity to living creatures. https://enwikipedia.org/wiki/lithium First and foremost, lithium is an FDA PREGNANCY CATEGORY D drug which means, even in very small doses, it causes birth defects, most especially of the heart. Lithium also passes through breastmilk and will harm the baby. Although the many websites which list the uses and warnings of lithium as a drug often divide the symptoms into COMMON SIDE EFFECTS and DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS, these effects are only gradations. The toxic dosage is small and each person is affected differently. For some individuals, even the smallest dose of lithium as a drug can be highly debilitating and some people react allergically. THERE IS NO ANTIDOTE FOR LITHIUM OVERDOSE OR ALLERGIC REACTION. Here are all the side effects listed at once: First and foremost – LETHARGY. You feel heavy and drugged. • THIRST. You can become quickly dehydrated especially if overheated. You crave salt. • STOMACH DISTRESS including both diarrhea and constipation. • TWITCHING of hands and head, sometimes of the whole body. • LOSS OF appetite. You can’t taste your food. • SLURRED SPEECH and BLURRED VISION. • ‘IMITATION’ GOITRE. Looks like thyroid malfunction but isn’t. • ENDROCRINE DISRUPTION CAUSING SEVERE MENSES/PERIODS. Stomach swells up as if you’re pregnant. • KIDNEY PAIN as the renal glands become dysfunctional.

Via Breitbart: Pope Francis returned to one of his favorite topics Friday morning, telling his hearers that the devil seeks above all to become master of their consciences, so they no longer can tell right from wrong. The Gospel reading at Mass spoke of Jesus casting out devils, and the Pharisees accusing him of driving out demons by the power of the Beelzebul, the prince of demons. It also spoke of a devil returning after being cast out, bringing other demons with it and setting up shop in the house where it had been before. In his homily in the chapel at the Saint Martha residence, the Pope said that in the spiritual life “temptations always return, the evil spirit never gets tired”. If he has been kicked out once, he is patient, waiting to return, and “If you let him in, you fall into a worse situation”. In fact, Francis said, in the gospel story, at first it was clear that it was the devil who was causing problems. But afterward, “The evil one conceals himself, and comes with his very polite friends, knocking at the door, asking permission, but then moves in and spends time with the man and, little by little, starts giving the orders”. With his “good manners”, Francis said, the devil makes the man fall into moral relativism, calming his conscience. We start saying things like “This happens everywhere” and “We are all sinners”, Francis said. Yet “When we say everybody, we mean nobody”, he said. “And so we live this worldliness that is the child of the evil spirit”. “Calming the conscience, numbing the conscience, this is a great evil”, he said. “When the devil manages to numb your conscience he has won a real victory”, Francis said, because “he has become the master of your conscience”. The Pope said that the key to combatting the devil is discernment and vigilance. We need to be able to discern situations, he said, to see what comes from God and what comes from the devil who “always tries to deceive” and to “make us choose the wrong path”. The Christian cannot just accept anything, but must “discern and look well to see where things come from, and what their root is”, he said. Francis said that the Church “always encourages us to examine our conscience: What happened in my heart today, why? Did this well-mannered devil visit me today with his friends?” “Where do these comments, these words, these teachings come from, who says this? Discern and keep watch, so as not to let in the one who deceives, seduces and fascinates”, he said. “We ask the Lord for this grace”, he said.
Via Disclose.tv: Even if you have to wait over 50 years, eventually the truth will out… Suspicions that the CIA covered up JFK‘s murder have finally been confirmed, according to an explosive Politico report out this week. Fifty-two years after the President’s death, declassified documents show that the CIA were in communication with alleged assassin Lee Harvey Oswald before JFK’s murder in 1963, and they were monitoring his mail since 1959. Not only that but John McCone, who was Chief of the CIA at the time, allegedly hid evidence from the Warren commission, set up by Lyndon Johnson to investigate JFK’s assassination. The spymaster and other senior CIA officials are accused of withholding ‘incendiary’ information from the commission and therefore perverting the course of justice. The CIA has admitted this. The Politico report is based on evidence given by CIA historian David Robarge. He has claimed the cover-up was intended to keep the commission focused on “what the agency believed at the time was the best truth - that Lee Harvey Oswald, for as yet undetermined motives, had acted alone in killing John Kennedy”. McCone directed the CIA to provide only “passive, reactive and selective” assistance to the Warren commission, meaning the investigation was severely compromised and did not follow up any other leads which may have been crucial in the search for truth. Robarge also believes that John McCone, who died in 1991, withheld vital information relating to various CIA plots to assassinate Fidel Castro. The historian points out that these plots may well be linked to JFK‘s assassination – there’s a strong chance his murder was a revenge attack for CIA operations in Cuba - but McCone’s unwillingness to explore other potentialities outside of prime suspect Lee Harvey Oswald could have resulted in a grave miscarriage of justice. JFK was America’s youngest ever and most charismatic President, and his death shocked the nation. Alternative murder theories are popular across the States: A 2013 poll found that only 30% of Americans believe Oswald shot JFK, and that he acted alone. 61% believed that others were involved in a conspiracy. David Robarge first published these exclusive claims in a secret internal CIA magazine in 2013. His claims have now been declassified and can be publicly accessed here on the George Washington University’s National Security Archive. Robarge has also written a biography of John McCone, but his book continues to be classified. What else might the historian have uncovered? Here’s hoping that the full truth of what happened in Dealy Plaza on that fateful day will very soon be common knowledge.

Via The Local: A group of 19 Eritreans landed at Luleå airport in northern Sweden on Friday as part of the first phase of a program to relocate tens of thousands of refugees within the EU. The asylum seekers were transferred to Sweden after it agreed on July 20th to take refugees from Italy and Greece in a bid to ease the humanitarian and financial burden on the two frontline states over two years. Earlier Friday, the 19 Eritreans -- 14 men and five women -- had shaken hands with EU migration commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos and waved as they boarded a financial police plane at Rome's Ciampino airport. "Today is an important day for the European Union, it is a day of victory... for those who believe in Europe, for those who believed in saving human lives", Italian Interior Minister Angelino Alfano told journalists after the departure. "It is a defeat for those who claim it is better for the Mediterranean to become a lake of death... and believe that scaring the European people is the way forward", he added. They Eritreans landed in Luleå in northern Sweden shortly after 4pm on Friday. They were later set to hand in their applications for asylum at a center in Boden, according to a press release from Sweden's Migration Agency. They will then be offered a spot at a center for refugees in the Östersund area in Sweden's Jämtland region. Swedish Migration Minister Morgan Johansson welcomed that the scheme on Friday was being implemented for the first time. “This is the first example of this issue of redistribution that we have fought for so much, to make sure that we are all prepared to accept our part of the responsibility”, he was quoted by the Swedish TT news agency. “Symbolically, it's very important. (…) It is important now that all countries live up to what we have actually promised each other. We break the ice and make sure that the implementation begins”, he said. The EU formally agreed on the plan last month despite the opposition of some eastern European states worried about a popular backlash to migrants. Until now, member states have only agreed to redistribute 32.000 people but are expected to make up the difference by the end of the year. With the crisis worsening, the EU has agreed to relocate a further 120.000 after overriding opposition from the same eastern European states. Of those, 5.700 will be transferred to Sweden, which last year took in more refugees per capita than any other EU country. Up until Wednesday this week, 81.400 people have applied for asylum in the Nordic nation in 2015, according to migration officials. In September alone, 24.306 people sought asylum in Sweden, a historically high figure that included 1.300 people on one single day. While Sweden has a global reputation for helping refugees, it has faced some internal criticism following complaints from asylum seekers about long waiting times and access to housing. The country's migration agency has warned that gyms and disaster shelters need to be used to accommodate the overflow before winter sets in. Östersund is a city of around 45.000 residents in the Jämtland region, located in northern parts of central Sweden. It has a long history of hosting several championships in outdoor sports such as ski orienteering, speed skating, and cross country skiing. Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's Social Democrat-Green coalition has promised to increase funding for refugees in its autumn budget. It is also pushing to encourage municipalities across Sweden to accept more asylum seekers.

Via The Local: Swedish divers confirmed on Thursday that they have uncovered the wreck of a legendary warship which was lost off the coast of Karlskrona in southern Sweden in the 17th century. Marine archaeologists from the Maritime Museum in Stockholm said that a wreck found near Karlskrona is that of the 'Solen' (which means 'sun' in Swedish) warship from the 1600s. "This is one of the first pieces of the world heritage puzzle", marine archaeologist Jens Lindström, who found the ship together with his colleague Jim Hansson, proudly told regional newspaper BLT. The wreck was discovered at a depth of only six meters, in an area where several other warships are believed to lay buried. It was intentionally sunk in 1694 after it had served its purpose. Solen was one of the largest ships in the Baltic in his heyday and took part in Sweden's sea battle with the Danish and Dutch navies off the island of Öland in 1676. Built in Lübeck in 1669 with 72 guns and a gross tonnage of 1.400, it out-sized even the famous warship Vasa, which sank in 1628, and its 64 guns. The Vasa ship has been on show in Stockholm since it was lifted from the capital's harbor in the 1960s. Its museum was recently voted best historic museum in the world by users of international travel site TripAdvisor. But there are no plans to recover Solen, Lindström and Hansson told BLT. "It will probably stay where it is", said Hansson.

Via Before It's News: A consultant at NASA and the NSA gave a series of incredible statements. Over the last 12 years, Dr. Eric Norton, an external consultant for NASA and the NSA, was responsible for identifying threats coming from the space, such as asteroids and comets. However, in January 2012, he identified something serious. He noticed an enormous alien fleet heading towards the Earth. On January 22, he was invited to the MacDonald Observatory, located near Fort Davis in Texas. The tools provided by this observatory helped him to notice this threatening group of UFOs. “I saw plenty of huge, three dimensional space objects, flying in a straight line formation towards the Earth”. It became clear that the UFOs were technologically highly developed, because after the three-month observation, Norton noticed that they were moving fast, passing millions of kilometers in just a couple of months. The data collected using spectroscope indicated that these objects were made of materials that are several thousand times harder than anything ever developed on Earth. Logically, this theory triggered serious worries of the research team members. Additionally, infrared spectrum pictures showed that cosmic particles were deflected by some energy field similar to the Earth’s magnetic field. As the group of UFOs was traveling through the Solar system, telescopes could provide more details about these flying objects. These spacecrafts are huge three dimensional “L” shaped objects. By January 2013, Mars was far behind the fleet so it was reasonable to think that they were approaching our planet. However, they suddenly disappeared, leaving Norton with the belief that they had turned some “invisibility” mode on. Over the last ten years, people have been making significant progress in the field of camouflage technique development. Therefore, it is logical to believe that advanced extraterrestrial civilization already has technology that can make their ships invisible. Another possibility is that they have changed their course. Despite using the infrared telescope, Norton and his team couldn’t spot them anymore. Over the next couple of months, Norton was uptight, because not just that he didn’t know where the fleet was, but he also couldn’t tell what their intention was. “I knew that the top level of authorities was worried about these findings, and that is why I was under constant protection of Secret Service agents. We spent the entire year of 2013 skeptically watching the skies. We didn’t know what was happening or where the spacecrafts disappeared. According to my calculations, the fleet should have been so close to our planet by then that everyone could see it even without a telescope. We didn’t know if they were still moving towards us, or they had already left the Solar system”. Almost a year later, Norton heard from his former colleague that the fleet had shown up again and it landed on the Moon, which was written in an internal report provided by Norton’s colleague. Luckily, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbital Camera photographed the object and the images ended up on Google Moon by accident. These images testify about unidentified object which has landed in a crater the size of Chicago. This means that calling it huge is not even close to an accurate description. The Department of Defense launched three Terrier-Orion rockets from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility on January 15, 2014, which is also stated in the report. The launches were labeled as “top secret”, and their mission is a mystery to the general public. Dr. Norton pointed out that his discoveries might produce a dangerous effect. “When it comes to revealing information to the public, I have to be careful in order to protect myself”. He is also convinced that the classified information in his possession has the potential to cause trouble in public regarding the UFO phenomenon. A leak of information could cause many problems. That would mean the breakdown of all religions, as well as the breakdown of society itself. Even though Norton’s statements are quite shocking, he didn’t want to provide the public with a little more detail. Yet, it is understandable why, taking into consideration the level of secrecy that accompanies these reports. However, he is right when he says that the government would do anything to cover up the extraterrestrial intervention of this size. It looks like we will have our answers once the fleet lands on Earth.
Via The Local: The rainy summer did not stop foreign tourists from flocking to Sweden in record numbers, according to key statistics released on Tuesday afternoon. According to fresh figures published by the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, a national government agency in charge of promoting entrepreneurship and local businesses, foreign tourism in Sweden broke new records this summer. Tourists traveling to the Nordic country from abroad spent a total of 387.000 more nights in Swedish hotels, hostels, and guest houses during June, July and August than in the same period last summer. "There are two strong incentives for tourists to come here. Partly it's the genuine, unspoiled nature, and partly it's our Swedish lifestyle", Thomas Brühl, chief executive of tourism organization Visit Sweden, told the TT news agency on Tuesday. It is perhaps unsurprising that people are attracted to the stunning Swedish mountains of the north, the vibrant capital Stockholm, and even the country's long sandy beaches. But according to Brühl the Swedes themselves are enough of a tourist attraction to draw foreign visitors. "It's how we live and our values that are fascinating to tourists. Our openness and our relationship with democracy interest them, for example our paternity leave", said Brühl, referring to Sweden's generous parental leave to promote gender equality between mums and dads. Most tourists still flock to the Nordic country from Germany and its neighbour Norway. But Indians and the Chinese are the two groups growing the fastest. "Sweden is a relatively big tourist destination in the world. When it comes to foreign visitors we're between the 20th and 30th spots", said Brühl. Tuesday's figures back up statistics from the Swedish hospitality industry's trade association Visita, which last month noted a marked rise in the number of overnight stays from last year (up by 8.6 percent compared to June-August in 2014). Foreign tourists have also been able to get more kronor for their dollars, pounds and other currencies this summer, which in turn is believed to have contributed to the hike. While a year ago $100 for example would have bought you around 700 Swedish kronor, visitors were able to cash in the same amount for well over 800 Swedish kronor this summer.

Via Before It's News: Russia's leader Vladimir Putin is set to mobilize 150.000 reservists who he conscripted into the military. An insider revealed: “It is very clear that Russia wants to sweep up the west of the country, taking Raqqa and all the oil and gas resources around Palmyra. This is fast becoming a race to Raqqa – to secure the oil fields they need and to cleanse the region of insurgents, and the IS capital is vital to do that”. It comes a day after Russian jets obliterated nine ISIS outposts in just 24 hours using bunker-busting bombs. Russian jets pounded terrorist targets and blew up a command center, potentially killing dozens of fighters. Confirming the successful raids, Andrei Kartapolov from the Russian army vowed to ramp up the pressure, saying: “We will not only continue strikes… We will also increase their intensity”. And Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said: “Over the past 24 hours, Sukhoi Su-34 and Su-24M fighter jets have performed 20 sorties and hit nine Islamic State installations”. “A bunker-busting BETAB-500 air bomb dropped from a Sukhoi Su-34 bomber near Raqqa has eliminated the command post of one of the terror groups, together with an underground storage facility for explosives and munitions”. “These and other highly exact means of attack in recent days have been used to target objects of Islamic State terrorists. Command posts, stores of weapons and oil products, workshops where weapons of suicide bombers are made”. Meanwhile a terrorism expert revealed to Express.co.uk that ISIS have vastly exaggerated their military strength and called on Western leaders to launch a co-ordinated fightback which would obliterate the hate group. Dr Afzal Ashraf said ISIS has become its own worst enemy with its campaign of terror against the West, which has prompted an international backlash. He said: “This mythical state will disappear in a matter of hours once the international community decides to act. It won’t take very long at all to drive them, if not out of all of Iraq or Syria, then certainly the majority of their territories. They will hide in towns, but I would say do not follow them as they would use innocent civilians as human shields".

Via The Local: An investigation by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet has discovered that many Swedish taxi drivers are charging refugees up to 15 times more than the standard fare for some journeys. While there were some drivers who offered free trips to refugees, many have been charging excessive fares. A trip that would cost 65 kronor in central Malmö has been costing up to 1.000 kronor. “I had to pay 400 kronor from the central station to Kontrapunkt social centre. First, we agreed on a price of 250, and then he wanted more when we arrived. I paid because I was afraid”, Hani Hamid, 30, an Iraqi refugee told Aftonbladet. “It is terrible to be exploiting this situation. I have heard that the refugees had to pay between 500 and 1.000 kronor to come to us. It must be stopped”, said Johanna Nilsson, coordinator of the Kontrapunkt social center, which has been providing up to 300 refugees a day with food and somewhere to sleep. Aftonbladet talked to five refugees who had taken a taxi to Kontrapunkt - all paid double rate or more. Many refugees report that drivers have convinced them to accept the inflated prices by telling them that it is forbidden for refugees to stay out on the street. 31-year-old Amir who arrived with his wife and child from Syria, says his taxi driver took his last money. The driver had offered him a ride to Kontrapukt - although Amir had told him several times that he could not afford it. “He said we could go anyway. When we arrived, he demanded that I pay him. He threatened to take my bag if I did not pay. I got scared and gave him all my Turkish money - the equivalent of 200 kronor”. Some drivers have also been massively overcharging for trips from Malmö to Gothenburg. “There is a big problem with the drivers that use refugees. Last night 22 people came by taxi from Malmö. They had all overpaid”, Katarina Gauffin, coordinator of Refugees Welcome Gothenburg told Aftonbladet. “They were charging 400 euros per person for a car with three or four refugees”, she said. According to official statistics quoted by the TT news agency, 73.000 people had applied for asylum in Sweden by the end of September, close to the 74.000 expected in the country in the whole of 2015. Last month alone, 24.306 people sought asylum in Sweden, a historically high figure that included 1.300 people on one single day.

Via The Local: The first batch of Sweden's new currency has gone into circulation as part of a huge project designed to replace over 300 million bank notes across the country. The Nordic nation has introduced 200-kronor notes and launched updated versons of 20, 50 and 1,000 kronor cash as part of its biggest currency changeover in decades. The new money features Swedish legends including director Ingmar Bergman, actress Greta Garbo, and children's author Astrid Lindgren. "The notes we have today have been around in various forms for about 30 years. We have always worked to update the security features of the bank note, but at some point you reach a point when it isn't meaningful any more", said Stefan Ingves, governor of Sweden's central bank, the Riksbank, at a press conference. The new kronor notes each include a 'KR' symbol in the top right hand corner, which changes colour when you wiggle them, in a move designed to make the money more difficult to forge. "You can quite easily see if it's genuine", added Ingves. He made the first purchase with one of the new notes, using a 200 kronor bill to pay for a copy of a children's book in the popular Swedish Pippi Longstocking series, for his granddaughter. Those super keen on getting their hands on the new currency queued up at the Riksbank in central Stockholm on Thursday afternoon. The notes will be available from 80 select ATMs this week and eventually nationwide from 2016. The areas where you can cash in on the new notes first are: Borlänge, Enköping, Gävle, Göteborg, Hedemora, Huskvarna, Jönköping, Kalmar, Karlskrona, Kramfors, Kristinehamn, Lindesberg, Linköping, Lyckeby, Malmö, Nässjö, Olofström, Sandviken, Skellefteå, Stockholm, Sundsvall, Sörberge, Timrå, Umeå, Visby, Västervik, Västerås, Växjö and Örebro. New coins will also be arriving in Sweden next year, including a brand new two kronor. A fresh set of one and five kronor coins will also be introduced, while the ten kronor coin will be the only currency that doesn't get a makeover. Today's 20, 50, and 1.000 notes will no longer be valid after June 30th 2016. The current 100 and 500 will be invalid after June 30th, 2017, together with the 1, 2, and 5 kronor coins. Swedes have become less dependent on cash in recent years and as The Local reported last year, four out of five purchases in Sweden are made electronically or by debit card. Researchers from Oxford University discovered in 2013 that Sweden's cash was among the filthiest in Europe, with bank notes containing more bacteria than all others across the continent.
