Via Disclose.tv: An Indian Air Force Su-30 MKI fighter jet has intercepted an unidentified flying object in Barmer, Rajistan, yesterday after the balloon-shaped object was seen on radar, triggering an alert. An IAF spokesman said: "Between 10.30 and 11 am an unidentified balloon-shaped object was picked up by the Indian Air Force (IAF) radar. An IAF fighter was launched, which intercepted the object and brought it down. Materials have been retrieved and further investigation is ongoing”. There have been local speculations on whether the object was a meteorological weather balloon from India or Pakistan. But the IAF has not confirmed what the object is. Barmer is less than 300 miles from Jaipur, where villagers reported this month mysterious metal balls falling from the sky. The Roswell incident is regarded as the world's most infamous unsolved UFO case. In July 1947, the US Army releases a press statement saying it had found the remains of a crashed flying saucer. It retracted it the next day, saying it had just been a weather balloon. But since then various witnesses came forward to say a UFO had been found and that even alien bodies were inside. According to police who scoured the area for debris, they found five triangle-shaped pieces of metal object, which were passed to the IAF. There are reports that villagers heard a deafening blast over a three-mile radius during the incident. Eyewitness Manoj Singh said: "The blast sound was heard five times and something fell down after an aircraft flew by". Police said similar blasts were heard at nearby Sinleejageer village, last year, also in January, and the IAF was still investigating that incident.

Via The Daily Beast: The ‘Kelly File’ host had a surprisingly genial sit-down with with the left-wing filmmaker in his first Fox News appearance in more than six years. The last time Michael Moore appeared on Fox News was in 2009. It was the week his documentary Capitalism: A Love Story came out in theaters, and the left-wing filmmaker sat down with Sean Hannity to look back at eight years of President George W. Bush and ahead to what would become eight years of President Barack Obama. On Tuesday night, more than six years later, Moore returned to Fox. But this time, it was to talk to Megyn Kelly, who has become the de facto queen of the conservative cable news channel. Her power is apparently so immense that she can single-handedly prevent Donald Trump from participating in the final GOP debate before the Iowa caucuses. She may not get the chance to question Trump on Thursday night, but Kelly and her liberal guest had plenty to talk about, from the water crisis in Moore’s hometown of Flint, Michigan, to his latest documentary, Where to Invade Next and, of course, the debate over which presidential candidate will succeed Obama next year. Yet once he came face-to-face with Kelly on air, they did manage to treat each other with some level of civility and mutual understanding. “I feel bad for you,” Moore said at the top of the segment, diving directly into the big story of day. “What’s he afraid of?” he asked of Trump. “I’m sitting here, I don’t feel any fear”. “I’m a pussycat”, Kelly agreed before trying to change the subject by bringing up Bernie Sanders. “You just didn’t deserve to be treated this way,” Moore said, ignoring her attempts. “You have done something that Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, [Marco] Rubio, [Ted] Cruz, none of them have been able to do, which is essentially to frighten him. Everybody’s tried to do this for months and you did it!” “This is why O’Reilly never had him back!” Kelly said, referring to a debate that Moore insisted he “won” with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly back in 2004. Kelly reminded Moore that he once called Hillary Clinton “disgusting” back in 2008 for her treatment of Obama on the campaign trail, but now he insisted, “I like Hillary”. The host also pushed Moore, who said he voted for Obama twice, to explain his criticism of the president in recent years. He said he wrote to Obama not long ago and said, “You’ve got to do some of the things we elected you to do, because it’s not going to be enough in the history books to say the big claim to fame is you were the first African-American president. That’s an important thing, but we need now to do some other things for us and before your term ends”. Moore said he wished he could have seen a single-payer health care system over Obamacare and wanted the promised closing of Guantanamo Bay to happen under Obama’s watch. The filmmaker’s criticism of Obama put Kelly in the odd position of defending the president. “He tried,” she said. “You’re tough”. “I’m very happy we've had him for these eight years, believe me, after what we had before,” Moore said, realizing the irony of the conversation he was having on Fox News. Asked if there is any candidate on the Republican side he could get behind, Moore said, “I would get behind all of them and push them somewhere”. “If you watch one of my films, you may not agree with me politically”, Moore added, but he told Fox viewers they will know that he loves this country and they will laugh at least half a dozen times, a fact Kelly could confirm based on the joking tone of their interview. As Kelly attempted to end the interview, Moore got out one more message, aimed at Kelly’s bosses Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch. “To get elected president in this country, you have to come on this network, you have to play ball with this network. Donald Trump today said, ‘I'm not playing ball with this network.’ That’s historic, and it will be interesting to see where the real power is”. “You’ve made this happen”, Moore told Kelly. “You caused a crisis upstairs here.” When Kelly pushed back, saying she did nothing more than ask Trump a question, Moore exclaimed, “You asked a great question, by the way! The war on women!” “Now you’re really ruining my rep, I’ve got to get out of here”, she said, laughing. “God bless you, Megyn Kelly”, Moore said before Kelly cut him off. The pair spent so much time talking politics that they didn’t make it to the water crisis in Flint. Earlier in the day, however, Moore stopped by The View, where he sounded off on that issue. He said he “absolutely” believes the crisis is racially charged, adding, “It happened there because the people there have no power”. “Anywhere where people are poor, who are of color, they generally don’t have lobbyists, they don’t have a lot of money”, he continued. “And this governor of our state, once he found out, once they all kind of knew something was wrong, even if they didn't know the specifics, they knew something was wrong. They kept allowing the people and the children especially to drink poison water. You understand, all the children of Flint have been exposed to lead poisoning, which causes irreversible brain damage”. “No matter how many bottles of water people sent, those kids are permanently damaged in the brain”, Moore added. If it were up to him, he said, Gov. Rick Snyder would be “arrested, absolutely, at least for manslaughter”.

Via Sputnik International: Under the wing of Russian military aviation, the Syrian Army has gained a newfound confidence in victory, a report by ORF, Austria's national public broadcaster, suggests. Together with other Western media, ORF journalists were given the opportunity to visit the Russian air base at Hmeymim, in Latakia province, the Russian destroyer Vice Admiral Kulakov, operating off the Syrian coast, and Salma, a city in Latakia province recently liberated from al-Nusra militants. Setting the tone for the report, which was aired Monday by the Austrian broadcasting giant, the presenter recalled that Syria is not only the country at the heart of Friday's Geneva peace talks, but also "the country from which a significant number of refugees arrive in Europe". Moving on, the presenter explained that in recent months, following the Russian intervention, the Syrian government has enjoyed a string of victories. "Russia air units are based at their own air base in the coastal province of Latakia. Now, some Western journalists were allowed to visit the Russian base, including our own Christian Lininger". "This", the presenter added, "was no ordinary excursion…We were allowed to see up close how the Russian military operation in Syria works. The first stop was the Russian air base. Allowing foreigners here is a completely new information policy by the Russian Defense Ministry, and one which no doubt, had been consciously chosen". "Russia has returned as a military power on the international stage – this is the message that journalists are meant to take away from here", Christian Lininger said, speaking from the Hmeymim airbase. "We have been told that in the four months since the beginning of the campaign in Syria, Russian military aircraft have conducted nearly 6.000 sorties, hitting over 10,000 targets. The fact that many of the shells were not destined to strike Daesh, but groups that the West has defined as 'moderate', is not something that the official representatives of the Defense Ministry denied. For them, nearly all opponents of Assad are terrorists". "Finally, the West has been turned on to common sense, and has begun to realize that the Syrian army must liberate their own country. As for us, we will simply help them to do so," Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov told ORF. "A very bold statement about the hypothetical Western views", Lininger noted, "but here people are convinced in their cause and, what is more, they want to show that they are fighting for a just cause: huge crates of humanitarian aid intended for the city of Deir ez-Zor, surrounded by Daesh militants, will be dropped there by parachute". "Day two of the excursion: we are shown a Russian warship, which specializes in combat against enemy submarines. However, here in Syria, Russia is not threatened by submarines. Therefore, one gets the sense that the main goal for Russia is to demonstrate its presence far from its home waters, and thus once again emphasize its desire to be perceived as a global power". "Day three: Salma. A small city which Assad's forces took back from their enemies only a week ago, with the active support of Russian aviation. The fighters loyal to Assad are grateful to Russia and stay confident". Asking a Syrian Army soldier in Salma if he believed that Syria will eventually win this war", Lininger got his answer: a confident "Yes". "They believe in victory. For now, such victory still seems far away, but Russian airstrikes have strengthened the positions of the Syrian president. Now, his forces win back new territory almost daily. And Russian generals are satisfied too". "We are showing you the results of our work here", Konashenkov noted. "The Russian campaign is yielding results, the commander wants to say, in contrast to the campaign by the Western coalition, which conducts its campaign almost exclusively against Daesh militants", Lininger adds. "Show us what that coalition – that so-called coalition, has done. They say that they have conducted more airstrikes than we have. But what results do they have to show for it?" Konashenkov added. "And once again, the planes are loaded with ammunition. No one here speaks any longer about a speedy end to the Russian campaign… Whether the engineers, guards and pilots are truly inspired by this campaign, far from their homeland, is anyone's guess. Talking to them is forbidden. It turns out that the new openness of the Russian military to reporters has its limits", Lininger concludes.

Via Scientific American: Discovery of 27 skeletons in Kenya point to the primal origins of conflict. In 2012 the remains of 27 hunter–gatherers were unearthed in a remote part of Kenya called Nataruk near Lake Turkana—many of whom, based on the startling state of their bony remnants, died horrifically violent deaths. Skulls were bashed in with blunt objects; knees and hands bound and broken. Razor-sharp obsidian spear tips were found lodged in two of the skeletons. After exhuming and carbon-dating the skeletons, researchers from the University of Cambridge Leverhulme Center for Human Evolutionary Studies have published their findings in this week’s Nature, reporting that the remains are estimated to be from between 9.500 and 10.500 years ago, making it the earliest scientifically dated evidence of organized human violence among scavenging humans. (Scientific American is part of Nature Publishing Group.) Whereas other recent evidence suggests that hunter–gatherer conflicts resulted in the men being slayed while women and children were assimilated to the victorious group, the winners of this conflict were considerably less discerning. At least eight of the victims were female—including one carrying a six- to nine-month-old fetus—five were children and one was a teenager. Although the recent discovery is the oldest for hunter–gatherers, it is not the oldest find of large-scale human violence—currently that title goes to remains discovered in the 1960s at the Jebel Sahaba site in Sudan, which could be up to 13.000 years old. Researchers say, however, that although the Sudan site is probably older, the dating methods were not as reliable as the one used for this new study. Also, many of those remains were found in what appeared to be a cemetery and could have accumulated over many years. “The significance of Nataruk lies partly in its early age but particularly in the fact that it is evidence of a single event”, explains professor of human evolution Robert Foley, who co-authored the new paper with his Cambridge colleague evolutionary biologist Marta Mirazón Lahr. Foley also points out that the new findings suggest that group violence occurred among people whose way of life was nomadic and often fought for resources as opposed to—as the Jebel Sahaba cemetery implies—an established community where territories and allotment of possessions and properties were more clearly identified. “This shows that even under hunter–gatherer conditions, conflicts between groups became serious enough for this level of killing”, Foley says. His point is significant, given that one school of anthropological thought holds that coordinated conflict, and eventually what we would call warfare, only arose with the settlement of land and a sense of proprietorship over resources. This thinking, as Foley points out, traces back to the idea of the “noble savage” being uncorrupted by civilization, a phrase which first appeared in English in John Dryden's 1672 play The Conquest of Granada and which is often misattributed to 18th-century French philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Yet violence predating advances like agriculture is more in line with a perhaps disheartening counterview in anthropology—one echoing English philosopher Thomas Hobbes’s idea that war and violence toward one another is the natural state of mankind—positing that conflict among humans and our predecessors has deep evolutionary roots that exist independently of cultural advance. “This is an important discovery because it provides crucial data to answer a long-standing debate about whether warfare predates agriculture”, comments Luke Glowacki, a Harvard University anthropologist who studies the evolutionary roots of violence. “This new study shows that warfare can and did occur in the absence of agriculture and complex social organization. It fills in important gaps in our understanding of the human propensity for violence and suggests a continuum between chimpanzee raiding and full-blown human warfare”. Although the recently discovered fallen Africans are thought to have lived a mobile existence, there is evidence that they were at least somewhat situated. Nataruk at the time abutted a fertile lagoon and would have been ripe with valuable resources like water and seafood. Also pottery was found at the site, which among early hunter–gatherers is, as Rutgers University anthropology professor Brian Ferguson points out, “usually associated with increased sedentism, food storage and heightened social complexity. It’s possible that the Lake Turkana victims were ensconced in a particularly productive locale, and those who massacred them came from somewhere much worse off". “There is probably little doubt that settling down and giving up a nomadic way of life would have intensified the probability of violence between groups”, Foley says. “For most hunter–gatherers, mobility was a strategy for avoiding such conflicts. However, if one looks at chimpanzees we see similar levels of intergroup conflict, and that might be an indication that it has a deeper ancestry in our evolutionary past”. To this point, Glowacki explains that studies looking at more modern hunter–gathers also suggest that humans probably have some deep-rooted tendency toward violence. “[Early] wars occur even in cases without resource competition”, he says. “In fact, resource abundance rather than competition sometimes contributes to increasing intensity of warfare because individuals are freed from worrying about providing for their basic subsistence needs”. Foley feels that a contributor to this violent tendency in humans and our ancestors might be, ironically, the same development that allows for altruism and compassion—that is, cooperation. “I can see violent attacks as deriving from the ability of humans to form groups with high levels of solidarity—put simple, between-group rivalry may have come with group coordination and sociality”. Unfortunately, as Nataruk and other instances of prehistoric group carnage suggest, friendship and ferocity seem to go hand in hand.

Via Disclose.tv: If you’re from Georgia, you’ve most likely heard of the Georgia Guidestones. Located in Nuberg, these four granite slabs have been at the center of wild, and very intense conspiracy theories for the past 30 years. But have you asked yourself, why all the attention? Why all the mystery? To understand the conspiracies, we first must look at the facts. In 1979, a man using the pseudonym “R.C. Christian” produced plans to build a monument. He made it very clear that money was no obstacle and that there needed to be the utmost discretion in the building process. The design took four granite slabs, each nearly 20 feet tall, and arranged them in a cluster. From there, they were to be topped with a smaller, horizontal slab. Sounds simple enough, right? But then there’s the weird part—the inscription. “R.C. Christian” insisted that each of the vertical stones was to be inscribed with the same 10 axioms, or guidelines for humanity. Each of the guidelines were carved in eight languages. The mystery is that nobody knows who “R.C. Christian” was. Nobody knows why these Guidestones are there. Nobody knows what they were meant for or their purpose. This is where the conspiracies come in. Take a look at eight of the top conspiracy theories surrounding the Georgia Guidestones. 1. The stones were meant to create a New World Order. Some Conspiracy theorists concluded that these stones were intended to create a new, more enlightened and well-rounded society. One that wouldn't succumb to overpopulation and stifling regulation. 2. These stones are the workings of the Antichrist. Many Christian groups have been noted as saying these Guidestones represent a call to genocide and that they are the Ten Commandments of the Antichrist. These conspiracies have led to at least three separate occasions of vandalism by religious groups. 3. The Guidestones were meant to survive a global apocalypse. Some conspiracy theories had a date: October 3rd 2014. (It's worth noting that we are now a year and some months later, and we're still alive.) This was the date of the global apocalypse and the stones were intended to aid survivors in regulating a new world. 4. The stones call for a global government. Many theorists have claimed that the Guidestones were a call to a global government— one that ruled collectively across the world, and handled any external issues in a world court. 5. The stones were designed for the worship of the sun and the devil. A local minister believed that since the stones lured many UFO enthusiasts, New Age folk and modern Pagans, it must have been built as an intended gathering place to worship all things evil. 6. The monument was built on a “power-nexus”. This conspiracy theory claims that the Georgia Guidestones were built on top of a large center of power. This core power that's hidden from the rest of the world, is said to eventually be released at an unknown date, and tackle the mess that our current world is in. 7. The stones are intended to convey psychic messages. This conspiracy tells visitors that they must point both arms at the monument---one palm up and one palm down---in order to receive psychic messages from the stones directly. Are you willing to give it a shot? 8. The monument was built on a sacred place to Native Americans, which means one very crucial thing. The Hopi Indians and their ancient shamans say "signs" will foretell the time when the fifth world, a new age, will begin. This also means the end of our current world. Ancient prophecies noted that when stone tablets are returned to the center of the world, the new age will begin. Now the only question remains, is Georgia truly at the center of the world? There you have a few of the conspiracy theories surrounding the Georgia Guidestones. It’s a fascinating mystery that still remains unsolved. Do you believe the conspiracies? Or better yet, do you have any of your own?

Via Disclose.tv: Teotihuacan and Mica: What is Mica, a powerful radioactive insulator doing in structures that date back thousands of years? One of the biggest mysteries surrounding the history of Teotihuacan is surely the huge presence of Mica found in the Pyramids of this great ancient city. Teotihuacan is without a doubt one of the most mysterious places in the Americas. While the incredible complexity and architectural precision are some of the details that have baffled archeologists for decades, the presence of Mica, a powerful radioactive insulator, is perhaps one of the biggest enigmas of this great ancient city. Established around 100 B.C., and lasting until its fall between the seventh and eighth centuries, Teotihuacan was one of the largest cities in the ancient world, with over 150.000 inhabitants at its peak. As you walk through the city you notice immediately the difference compared to other ancient cities. Teotihuacan is amazing, it is both incredibly futuristic and ancient at the same time. This Ancient City has a modern city layout, you have a Street of the Dead that goes for miles along which you have all of the major ceremonial architecture, including some of the largest buildings ever erected in the New World. According to archaeologists the advanced design of Teotihuacan suggests that ancient builders had knowledge, not only of architecture, but of complex mathematical and astronomical sciences, and one of the things that are just incredibly amazing and different from all other ancient sites is the fact that from the air, Teotihuacan‘s city layout strangely resembles a computer circuit board with two large processor chips— the Sun Pyramid and the Moon Pyramid. Researchers have also found numerous and remarkable similarities to the Great Pyramids of Egypt. But just 100 years ago, there were no pyramids (you could see) at Teotihuacan. The staggering four kilometers of the Avenue of the dead and its well-known pyramids of the Sun and the Moon remained hidden from sight. Instead of the Pyramids, strange gentle slopes rose from the ground, equidistant from each other, which led to the assumption that these mysterious hilltops could have been artificial structures. They had been there for centuries, covered with vegetation and soil, forgotten like many other ancient sites. Curiously, when Hernan Cortes and his men conquered the Aztec empire in the sixteenth century they asked the natives who had built such a colossal city, to what the Aztec replied; We were not the builders of Teotihuacan, this city was built by the Quinanatzin, a race of giants who came from the heavens in the times of the SECOND SUN. The Aztecs were the ancient civilization that named the city Teotihuacan, but they did not know the original name of the city. Teotihuacan can be translated to City where men become gods. The Aztecs named the pyramids of Teotihuacan Tonatiuh and Metal tzaquati ( home of the Sun and the Moon). The Aztec empire told the Spanish that the Pyramid of the Sun was covered with black basalt in the distant past, but when they arrived at the city, it was completely abandoned. In 1906, a worker digging at the site made one of the most important and mysterious discoveries that would forever change how we looked at Teotihuacan. On the fifth deck of the Pyramid of the Sun, a worker discovered a thick layer of laminated mica covering a huge area. It was an odd place for the material to be found. At that time, in 1906, mica was invaluable in the market. It was used for the construction of capacitors and was considered an incredibly well-appreciated electrical and thermal insulator which had a melting point over 1.100 degrees Celsius. For some obscure reason, the architects of Teotihuacan placed it there in the second century BC, at the time of the greatest expansion of their civilization. The question was why? Most of the Mica found in 1906 at Teotihuacan was sold at a great price in the market. But not all of the Mica disappeared from Teotihuacan. Today, there are still a few places where you can find Mica in Teotihuacan. For some mysterious reason, the unknown builders of this great Ancient City managed to extract and transport Mica, and incorporate it into the buildings of Teotihuacan, what no one is able to answer is why? What was Mica used for thousands of years ago? Was it part of some lost ancient technology? If so… what type of technology was it? And is it possible that the builders of the Ancient City were in fact ‘Gods’ as some legends suggest? Obviously, Mica was not incorporated to these constructions for decoration purposes because you couldn’t see it, so it is clear that this mineral was incorporated into these monuments for another purpose. Mica is stable when exposed to electricity, light, moisture, and extreme temperatures. It has superior electrical properties as an insulator and as a dielectric, and can support an electrostatic field while dissipating minimal energy in the form of heat; it can be split very thin (0.025 to 0.125 millimeters or thinner) while maintaining its electrical properties, has a high dielectric breakdown, is thermally stable to 500 °C, and is resistant to corona discharge. Muscovite, the principal mica used by the electrical industry, is used in capacitors that are ideal for high frequency and radio frequency. Phlogopite mica remains stable at higher temperatures (to 900 °C) and is used in applications in which a combination of high-heat stability and electrical properties is required. Muscovite and phlogopite are used in sheet and ground forms. According to tests carried out by the Viking Foundation, discoverer of one of the rooms with Mica, this valuable material had an unmistakable ‘identity card’ saying from where it had been extracted. Being made up of specific trace elements, researchers learned that the Mica used in the construction of Teotihuacan had left a rocky region located more than 3.200 kilometers away from Teotihuacan, more precisely… in Brazil. This itself is a true enigma… how did the builders of Teotihuacan extract nearly 30 square meters of mica in Brazil, transport it nearly intact to Mexico without roads, or advanced means of transportation, thousands of years ago? This is one of the greatest enigmas no one has been able to answer about Teotihuacan. If we could only find the means of equipment that they had used to tap into their power source. Several years ago I read about atmospheric electricity and using it as a power source. I would have to look up all the books’ names in my 30 year old journal but the author had believed the ancients used the atmospheric and earth charge to power a global energy grid. Also mentioning that the future glass domed cities we will build on the Earth will be powered by that system as well. With 1 volt per 3 feet elevation they knew how to collect the charge and concentrate it for their lighting and wireless communications. Anyone who has ever seen a crystal radio that is made with a real crystal and a few simple items know how they can tune in a radio station. Some of us built them in grade school science projects. With this system of information transmission and the human runners news could be sent to centers around the world on their network. Some Egyptian ornamental statues seem to be possible transmitters and receivers. The Inca towers may have been transmitters although their equipment is not still there. Grid patterns are being found through Google Earth that indicate a global system of unbelievable scale that was collecting the Earth charge. What did they do with all that power still seems to be as little understood as the need to collect it. The actual equipment used with these power sources was probably melted into other useful items or just destroyed by a conquering civilization because they were examples of evil remnants of the prior occupants. We need another library of Alexandria to understand what these engineers of long ago were developing. It is interesting to see the pieces of the past beginning to take shape with more discoveries made for a new understanding of those that have called this Earth home. Seems as though this has been greatly suppressed for millennia due to lack of acknowledged evidence in order to prevent the return of another occurrence.

Via Disclose.tv: A couple of months back, an unusual sighting caught the attention of the general public. People were intrigued and at the same time scared of what was happening above their heads. On November 7, 2015, a huge ball of light perturbed the silence of the night. Concerned about a nuclear attack, the citizens gathered outside to watch the spectacle. Youtube user Ian Houser, described the event as it follows: “At San Onofre beach in southern California. Started as a fireball coming over the ocean, reflecting off the water and showing heat distortion. Explodes at :28 [below video] and spent the next five minutes as a glowing, expanding gas cloud radiating down to the surface. It left a blue cloud in the sky for 10 mintues. No sound during the explosion”. While this can be taken as a mere missile launch, the events that followed might prove otherwise. We’ve seen the missile launches this autumn and they all had a thing in common – a scheduled launch date available prior to the launching of the missile. However, in this particular case there were no information available. Could this be a secret Navy project, or could the luminous object be something completely different? Apart from this missile-or-not enigma, there is something else going on, I’d say of greater importance. After a while, another smaller UFO enters the scene only to cause havoc. The sneeky flying device passes close to the other object, and after a few moments the presumed missile blows up without making any noise whatsoever. It leaves behind a blue trail while also gaining a radiant whitish aura. After many people reported this “unscheduled event”, the Navy came with a reasoning explanation: the launch of a Trident missile (without the nuclear load obviously). However, there was no official report regarding the mysterious UFO that appears to have caused the explosion. Can we trust the Navy? Or is it only a cover-up of a greater event? After analyzing the bizarre occurence, we’ve found a few similarities between the luminous object and a test missile, however, there are too many thing that do not add up. Some analysts believe that what we saw in the sky was in fact a meteor blown up by a mysterious UFO of either human or alien origins. Do you think aliens might try to prevent a nuclear disaster? Or is this some kind of secret Navy program meant for testing their “otherworldly toys”?

Via End Of The American Dream: Did you know that the top 1% has more wealth than the rest of the planet combined? And just 62 ultra-wealthy members of the elite have as much money as the poorest 3.5 billion people on the entire planet. These brand new numbers come from a shocking report that was just put out by Oxfam, and they show that income inequality continues to grow at a very rapid pace all over the world. As you will see below, the total wealth of the poorest half of the global population has plunged by 41 percent since 2010 while the wealth of the elite has continued to surge upward. The debt-based financial system that now has the entire planet in its grip funnels wealth to the very top, and the global elite are more than happy to hoard as much of it as they possibly can. Back in 2010, 388 members of the elite had as much wealth as the poorest half of humanity. But since then that number has been steadily falling and now it is down to just 62. At this pace, Oxfam is projecting that in just a few years a single person will have as much money as the poorest half of the global population combined. As I mentioned above, a big reason for this trend is the financialization of the global economy. All over the world, governments, businesses and individuals have been trained to binge on debt, and all of this debt is systematically impoverishing us. Whenever we borrow money, we always have to pay back more than we borrow, and this funnels wealth to the very top of the pyramid. Since the last financial crisis, the total amount of debt in the world has absolutely exploded. At this point it is sitting at more than 200 trillion dollars, and all of that debt enriches the ruling class. The more money they get, the more they are able to impose their will on the rest of us, and that is not a good thing. You may think that you can change your destiny at the ballot box, but history has shown that this is a rather fruitless exercise. The candidate with the most money almost always wins, and so the elite just buy and sell politicians like trading cards. And most politicians are members of the elite anyway. In the end, it is very rare to see a true “outsider” have any sort of sustained success in the political arena. Unfortunately for the elite, the massive global financial bubble they have created is beginning to burst, and this could have very serious consequences for them. As USA Today is reporting, many of the elite are in a rather glum mood as they gather in Davos, Switzerland for their yearly confab…

Via The Huffington Post: The crisis is jeopardizing "the very core of the European Union", said the EU Migration Commissioner. Is this how "Europe" ends? The Germans, founders and funders of the postwar union, shut their borders to refugees in a bid for political survival by the chancellor who let in a million migrants. And then -- why not? -- they decide to revive the Deutschmark while they're at it. That is not the fantasy of diehard Eurosceptics but a real fear articulated at the highest levels in Berlin and Brussels. Chancellor Angela Merkel, her ratings hit by crimes blamed on asylum seekers at New Year parties in Cologne, and EU chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker both said as much last week. Juncker echoed Merkel in warning that the central economic achievements of the common market and the euro are at risk from incoherent, nationalistic reactions to migration and other crises. He renewed warnings that Europe is on its "last chance", even if he still hoped it was not "at the beginning of the end". Merkel, facing trouble among her conservative supporters as much as from opponents, called Europe "vulnerable" and the fate of the euro "directly linked" to resolving the migration crisis -- highlighting the risk of at the very least serious economic turbulence if not a formal dismantling of EU institutions. Some see that as mere scare tactics aimed at fellow Europeans by leaders with too much to lose from an EU collapse -- Greeks and Italians have been seen to be dragging their feet over controlling the bloc's Mediterranean frontier and eastern Europeans who benefit from German subsidies and manufacturing supply chain jobs have led hostility to demands that they help take in refugees. Germans are also getting little help from EU co-founder France, whose leaders fear a rising anti-immigrant National Front, or the bloc's third power, Britain, consumed with its own debate on whether to just quit the European club altogether. So, empty threat or no, with efforts to engage Turkey's help showing little sign yet of preventing migrants reaching Greek beaches, German and EU officials are warning that without a sharp drop in arrivals or a change of heart in other EU states to relieve Berlin of the lonely task of housing refugees, Germany could shut its doors, sparking wider crisis this spring. GERMAN WARNINGS With Merkel's conservative allies in the southern frontier state of Bavaria demanding she halt the mainly Muslim asylum seekers ahead of tricky regional elections in March, her veteran finance minister delivered one of his trademark veiled threats to EU counterparts of what that could mean for them. "Many think this is a German problem", Wolfgang Schaeuble said in meetings with fellow EU finance ministers in Brussels. "But if Germany does what everyone expects, then we'll see that it's not a German problem -- but a European one". Senior Merkel allies are working hard to stifle the kind of parliamentary party rebellion that threatened to derail bailouts which kept Greece in the euro zone last year. But pressure is mounting for national measures, such as border fences, which as a child of East Germany Merkel has said she cannot countenance. "If you build a fence, it's the end of Europe as we know it", one senior conservative said. "We need to be patient". A senior German official noted that time is running out, however. "The chancellor has been asking her party for more time", he said. "But ... that narrative ... is losing the persuasiveness it may have had in October or November. If you add in the debate about Cologne, she faces an increasingly difficult situation". He noted that arrivals had not fallen sharply over the winter months as had been expected. "You can only imagine what happens when the weather improves", he said. SCHENGEN FEARS Merkel and Juncker explicitly linked new national frontier controls across Europe's passport-free Schengen zone to a collapse of the single market at the core of the bloc, and of the euro. Both would ravage jobs and the economy. "Without Schengen ... the euro has no point", Juncker told a New Year news conference on Friday. Historic national resentments were re-emerging, he added, accusing his generation of EU leaders of squandering the legacy of the union's founders, survivors of World War Two. Merkel has not suggested -- yet -- that Berlin could follow neighbors like Austria and Denmark in further tightening border checks to deny entry to irregular migrants. But she has made clear how Europe might suffer. "No one can pretend that you can have a common currency without being able to cross borders relatively easily", she said at a business event last week. In private, German officials are more explicit. "We have until March, the summer maybe, for a European solution", said a second German official. "Then Schengen goes down the drain". A senior EU official was equally blunt: "There is a big risk that Germany closes. From that, no Schengen ... There is a risk that the February summit could start a countdown to the end". The next summit of EU leaders one month from now follows meetings last year that were marked by agreement on a migration strategy as well as rows over failures to implement it. Of the 160.000 asylum seekers EU leaders agreed in September to distribute among member states, fewer than 300 have been moved. Berlin and Brussels continue to press for more distribution across Europe. But few place much hope in that -- one senior German official calls it "flogging a dead horse". TURKISH KEY EU leaders' hope is for help from Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, a man many of them see as an embryonic dictator. Berlin is pressing for more EU cash for Ankara, beyond an agreed 3 billion euros, which Italy is blocking. Some Germans suggest simply using German funds to stem the flow from Turkey. EU officials say it is too early to panic. Arrivals have fallen this month. U.N. data show them running in January at half the 3.500 daily rate of December. Progress includes a move to let some of the 2.1 million Syrian refugees in Turkey take jobs. The EU will fund more schools for refugee children. Yet EU Migration Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos, who travels to Berlin on Monday, told the European Parliament last week: "The situation is getting worse". The refugee crisis was jeopardizing "the very core of the European Union", he said, offering no grounds to be optimistic other than that "optimism is our last line of our defense".

Via Mirror: Fed-up residents in a Welsh village are holding their breath for a day of dry weather after 81 days of consistent rainfall. People living in Eglwyswrw, Pembrokeshire, have experienced rainfall every day since October 26. As well as dampening the spirits of locals, it has also caused problems for farmers - who have had to keep their livestock indoors. However, while Eglwyswrw's predicament has seen it gain international headlines as well as close in on the previous record, villagers hope Saturday's predicted dry spell will be correct. Farmer and local councillor John Davies, 52, described the rain as being as of biblical proportions. He said: "I think everybody in the village is starting to get fed up with it now. "The forecast for tomorrow is finally dry weather, but to be honest that's been predicted before and hasn't materialised. "I think people would much prefer some decent weather than for the village to end up in the record books. "It is grinding people down both physically and psychologically. "Our sheep are pretty hardy animals but even they are looking depressed. Their fleeces are not getting the chance to dry out because of the endless rain. And I've also had to keep my cattle indoors since October. Howard Lewis, who runs a Shire horse centre in the village, said he had never seen the ground so saturated from rainfall. The 73-year-old added: "We've had some bad years but I can't remember it raining every day for so long. "It's making people miserable, all we are getting is grey skies and rain" A weather station nearby at Whitechurch has recorded at least 0.2mm of rain - to comply with the Met Office definition of a "rainy" day. But while there has been no let-up in the rain, those living in Eglwswrw have at least escaped flood problems as the village stands 423ft above sea level. And the tightly knit west Wales community also has a bit to go before it can claim the British record for most consecutive days of rainfall. That was set between August 12 and November 8 1923 when it chucked it down for 89 days in Eallabus, Isle of Islay, Argyllshire, Scotland. Met Office meteorologist Emma Sharples said the rainfall figures for the Whitechurch station were consistent with this winter's extreme rainfall. She said: "The wind has been mild and moist from the south and south west. Warm air holds more moisture and the direction of the wind has been key - the Pembrokeshire coast is the first point at which the rain bearing clouds meet the land".

Via BBC News: The Venezuelan government has announced a 60-day economic emergency to deal with the country's worsening crisis. President Nicolas Maduro will govern by decree for two months. The edict includes tax increases and puts emergency measures in place to pay for welfare services and food imports. The government's move came as official figures released by the central bank showed that the Venezuelan economy had contracted by 4.5% in the first nine months of 2015. The emergency was declared hours before President Maduro delivers a State of the Nation address to Congress for the first time since his centre-right opponents took control of the legislature. The decree also instilled more state controls on businesses, industrial productivity and on electronic currency transactions. Oil price fall Venezuela has the world's biggest known oil reserves but the huge fall in oil prices in the past 18 months has slashed its revenues by 60%. Annual inflation up to September 2014 is said by the Venezuelan Central Bank to have reached 141%. President Maduro and new Economy Minister Luis Salas have argued for the need to protect social programmes established by his predecessor, former President Hugo Chavez, from the global drop in oil prices. Oil exports account for as much as 95% of Venezuela's revenue. The government says the country's soaring inflation and basic goods shortages have been induced by political opponents. Correspondents say Venezuelans will be watching carefully to see if the opposition-dominated Congress will support President Maduro. If it does not, the Maduro administration could appeal to the Supreme Court of Justice.

Via Disclose.tv: A massive UFO sighting has been captured on tape by a Chilean local. The spectacular moment shows how four unidentified massive objects are hovering over downtown Santiago, Chile’s capital and largest city, and after they disappear from the field of view, other small bright UFOs take their place. The first four flying objects slowly move across the sky before disappearing one by one. They keep no formation and have a few particularities that may identify them as human-made crafts. But what about their other unexplained characteristics? The massive UFOs share the same cigar shape and have four lights that flicker as they hover over the city. These could be either safety lights or coming from a quad-engine prototype, but considering that safety lights are usually colored, the four-engine hypothesis seems more viable. After the massive crafts slowly leave the area, other small UFOs come in their stead. They perform some kind of ritual this time, like following a pattern. The smaller crafts remind us of the speeding orb UFOs, but judging after the speed and pulsating light, it’s likely that they are something else. Are these spectacular UFOs man made? Military crafts or authentic alien ships?

Via Disclose.tv: Bacteria resistant to ALL antibiotics have arrived in Europe, and experts fear it could be the start of a global epidemic of untreatable infections. Last month, we reported on a gene mutation called MCR-1 that had shown up in bacteria in China. The mutation is resistant to all antibiotics, including colistin, a last-resort drug used to tackle tough bacteria when all other antibiotics have failed. The superbugs were found in 15% of raw meat samples in China, as well as a fifth of the animals tested. Colistin had also failed in 16 patients infected with drug-resistant infections. Now a patient in Denmark has been diagnosed with an untreatable form of salmonella, scientists from George Washington University (GWU) and the Statens Serum Institute (SSI) and National Food Institute (NFI) in Denmark announced Friday. In addition, they also found untreatable bacteria in 5 samples of chicken imported from China through Germany. The Antibiotic Resistance Action Center in the Milken Institute School of Public Health at GWU, said in a statement to National Geographic: “The news that the dangerous colistin resistance gene has been found in Denmark is alarming. This newly identified gene, called MCR-1, is on a mobile piece of DNA that can make copies of itself and then jump to from bacterium to bacterium, spreading resistance. History shows that these mobile resistance genes can spread around the world quickly, silently riding in people, animals, and food. The news that MCR-1 has been discovered in Denmark suggests that this scenario is playing out in real time”. The Danish researchers said that when they learned of the new resistance factor, they immediately took a look at the stored genomes they held at their institutions to look for it: “The approximately 3.000 Gram-negative (E. coli or Salmonella) bacteria, which have previously been mapped using whole genome sequencing, have been reexamined to see whether MCR-1 is present. Results show that MCR-1 was found in one patient, who suffered from a blood infection in 2015 and in five food samples that have been imported from 2012-2014. All the bacteria are multi-resistant ESBL bacteria containing the MCR-1 gene, which can further complicate treatment”. The Chinese researchers who discovered the untreatable pathogens warned that it could spread globally, but experts are shocked at how quickly they’re making their way around the globe, saying the situation is extremely serious. And bacteria affected by the MCR-1 gene are especially frightening because they can be transferred to other types of bacteria, which means they could spread quickly between animals and humans. Professor Frank Møller Aarestrup, a microbiologist at the Technical University of Denmark, said today: “This is a very alarming discovery. Aarestrup said he wouldn’t be surprised if the powerful bugs had already migrated to the U.K. Scientists in New Zealand said the same. Colistin is widely used in farming, particularly in China, where farmers feed it to pigs and chickens en masse to fatten them up. In the U.S., approximately 70% of antibiotics considered vitally important to human health are used in farm animals. Drug resistance hasn’t become enough of a problem in the U.S. to start using colistin, but it’s only a matter of time until it’s needed. And then, surely, it will only be a matter of time until colistin stops working for Americans. The GWU ended its statement by saying this: “We must act swiftly to contain the spread of colistin-resistant bacteria, or we will face increasing numbers of untreatable infections. Leaders from every nation should immediately implement a ban on the use of colistin in animal agriculture. While China appears to be the biggest user of the drug, it is approved for use in the European Union and many other countries. It also is approved for use in food animals in the U.S., but drug companies holding those approvals are not actively marketing the drugs. Drug companies with these approvals should immediately withdraw these label claims to ensure that colistin is never used in U.S. animal agriculture, otherwise our livestock production facilities could become breeding grounds for untreatable superbugs ( via myscienceacademy.org ). In addition, we need to remember why colistin is the last drug available for treating these dangerous infections. We turned to it because the preferred drug class – carbapenems – became powerless against some superbugs due to overuse. Carbapenems are still effective against many bacteria, but for how long? While carbapenems are not approved for use in animal agriculture in many parts of the world, their use is not explicitly banned. World leaders should call for an immediate ban on carbapenems to protect them for future generations”.

Via Bloomberg Business: Google’s chairman thinks artificial intelligence will let scientists solve some of the world’s "hard problems", like population growth, climate change, human development, and education. Rapid development in the field of AI means the technology can help scientists understand the links between cause and effect by sifting through vast quantities of information, said Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Alphabet Inc., the holding company that owns Google. “AI will play this role to navigate through this and help us”. It can also aid companies in designing new, personalized systems. In the future, Schmidt would like to see “Eric and Not-Eric”, he said at a conference in New York, where “Eric” is the flesh-and-blood Schmidt and“not-Eric is this digital thing that helps me”. Hot Field Google has been one of the most significant corporate backers of AI. It uses the technology for new businesses, like self-driving cars, and to improve existing ones, such as the Android phone operating system or Google’s search engine. But competition is heating up as Facebook Inc., Microsoft Corp, International Business Machines Corp., Baidu Inc. and others are also plowing resources into research for the technology. “The power of AI technology is it can solve problems that scale to the whole planet”, Mike Schroepfer, Facebook’s chief technology officer, said at the event. AI is becoming so influential and important that companies should work together to create standardized approaches, said Schmidt, using similar tools and publishing their research to the academic community. ‘Profound Promise’ “Every single advance has occurred because smart people got in a room and eventually they standardized approaches” he said. “The promise of this is so profound that we -- Alphabet, Google, whatever our name is at the moment -- are working incredibly hard to advance these platforms”. Mountain View, California-based Alphabet employs hundreds of people that conduct fundamental research into AI, sponsors numerous academic conferences and publishes its findings throughout the year. In 2014 it acquired U.K.-based startup DeepMind, which is trying to build machines that can think for themselves. DeepMind now employs more than 150 researchers. The field of AI feels like the early days of the PC and mobile phone industries, Schmidt said. There is “a small set of people that understand collectively that when we put all this stuff together we can build platforms that can change the world", he said.

The little boy kept complaining that some stranger was talking to him through the monitoring device. His parents, Jay and Sarah, were confused about what he could be talking about. Soon their confusion turned to horror as they discovered that their toddler was being spied on by a stranger who had hacked the monitor! CBS News reported on this in the upcoming video, where you will actually hear the intruder speaking in a really creepy way to this scared child. Sarah discovered this when she walked into her son’s room and heard a voice say, “wake up little boy, daddy’s looking for you”. Later on, Jay heard the same voice coming from the monitor continue, “look someone’s coming”, as Sarah entered the room. Needless to say, both parents were alarmed and became more frightened when they noticed that the night-vision lens was being controlled by someone to follow their movements. They immediately contacted the manufacturer of the monitor, Foscam, who informed them that it was more than likely someone had hacked their monitor using a smartphone app or computer. They have shared this terrifying experience anonymously, to alert other parents of this danger. CBS News confirmed, that due to the fact that monitors come equipped with internet and smartphone connectivity, this type of crime is occurring more and more frequently. Watch the video for further description of this incident, and what is recommended to keep hackers from being able to access your baby monitor.

Via The Local: Record numbers of Swedes are quitting their homeland, according to figures from the country's number crunching agency Statistics Sweden. More Swedish residents chose to leave the Nordic nation to live in other countries in 2015 than at any other time in the last 160 years, freshly released figures suggest. Between 1850 and 1930, there was mass emigration from Sweden amid high unemployment and crop failures, with around 50.000 people a year quitting the Scandinavian country. According to Statistics Sweden, some 51.237 people left Sweden last year, including foreign-born residents heading back to their home countries or other destinations. "The proportion of emigrants in relation to the Swedish population as a whole is not as great as in the 1800s. But the fact remains that Sweden is today also a country of emigration", Maria Solevid, political scientist at the University of Gothenburg, told Swedish broadcaster SVT on Thursday. The official statistics follow separate figures released by the non-profit organisation Svenskar i världen (Swedes Worldwide), which last year published a widely-shared list of the most popular foreign destinations Swedes relocate to. The United States featured at the top of the table, with 150.000 Swedes following in the footsteps of their ancestors. Meanwhile 90.000 are understood to live in the UK, with a similar figure settling in sunny Spain. Other warm climes including Thailand, France, and Italy were among the leading ten choices. However according to Solevid, there has been little detailed research on the specific reasons Swedes seek new lives abroad. "There is stunningly little knowledge of these people and why they move", she said, adding that her team intended to investigate the issue. Despite rising numbers of people fleeing their frozen homeland, Sweden's population is continuing to grow at a record rate, driven by unprecedented immigration. Some 163.000 people sought asylum in Sweden in 2015, while the number of foreigners relocating from other EU countries also continued to grow rapidly. Sweden's total population is expected to pass 10 million for the first time in history later this year, according to Statistics Sweden.
800-Year-Old Prophecy Declares When “King Of Persia Will Provoke King Of Arabia” Redemption Is Around The Corner
Via Breaking Israel News: When Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic ties with Iran, this created a chain reaction that led Bahrain and other Middle Eastern countries to expel Iranian diplomats. Unwittingly, Saudi Arabia’s actions can be seen as the fulfillment of a messianic Jewish prophecy found in the ancient Jewish holy book known as the Yalkut Shimoni. The Yalkut Shimoni, a compilation of rabbinic commentary on the Bible, is believed to have been composed in the 13th century. Despite being written over 800 years ago, the Yalkut Shimoni has something extremely relevant to say about today’s headlines. Speaking about the relevant passage in the Yalkut Shimoni, Rabbi Yekusiel Yehudah Halberstam, better known as the Klausenberger Rebbe, said, “Remember these words. Now, perhaps, they are not understood, but in time, they will be, and they will be a source of chizuk (strength) to Am Yisroel (the Jewish people)”. The Klausenberger Rebbe was an Orthodox rabbi with thousands of followers in the years prior to World War II. Most of his followers were murdered in the Holocaust. The Klausenberger Rebbe died in Israel in 1994. What was the prophecy of the Yalkut Shimoni that the Klausenberger Rebbe knew would bring comfort and strength to the Jewish people at a future date? The Yalkut Shimoni predicted that the year the Messiah would appear, the “King of Persia [Iran] will provoke the King of Arabia [Saudi Arabia]”. The two main sects in Islam are Sunni and Shia. While they both have much in common, the differences between the two sects in Islam have led to a long history of violent and deadly conflict among Muslims . Many of today’s political and diplomatic conflicts between Iran and other Muslim countries are connected to this Sunni-Shia divide. Not surprisingly, Iran and Saudi Arabia do not share the same Muslim sect. Although the vast majority of the Islamic world today is Sunni, Iran, and, to a lesser degree Iraq, are home to the majority of the region’s Shiite Muslims. Saudi Arabia is more than 90 percent Sunni. Iran, by contrast, is 95 percent Shiite. Thus, when angry Shiite Iranians recently overran the Saudi embassy in Tehran this past Sunday to protest the execution of a Shiite Muslim cleric named Nimr al-Nimr, the duel between the Sunnis and the Shiites was inflamed. As a consequence, Saudi Arabia gave Iranian diplomats 48 hours to pack up and leave. The full text of the Yalkut Shimoni connects the political tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia with good news about the full redemption of the Jewish people. “Rabbi Yizchok said: ‘The year that Melech HaMoshiach [Messiah the King] will be revealed, all the nations of the world will be provoking each other. The King of Persia (Iran) will provoke the King of Arabia, and the King of Arabia will go to Edom (the West) to take counsel, but the King of Persia will in turn, destroy the entire world. The nations of the world will be outraged and panicked. They will fall on their faces, and they will experience pains like birth pangs. Israel too will be outraged and in a state of panic and ask, where do we go? But say unto them, “My children, do not fear, ‘Higiyah zman geulatchem’ [the time of your redemption has come]. And in the last redemption will be different from the first which was followed by further bondage and pain. After this last redemption, you will not again experience any further pain or subjugation”. Rabbi Baruch Cohen, a civil trial attorney in the US and pro-Israel blogger at American Trial Attorneys In Defense of Israel shared with Breaking Israel News the enthusiasm many feel when comparing the ancient prophecy to current events. “It is incredible to see Chazal’s [the Jewish sages’] prophecies come to life in real time in today’s headlines”, he said. “The Baal Haturim [early 14th century scholar of Jewish law] explains when Yishmael [Ishmael, meaning the Muslim Arabs] will fall and be finally defeated in the end of days, then the Moshiach [messiah] – the descendant of Yishai [father of King David], who is himself a descendant of Yitzchak [Issac], will come. Even in the most terrifying of times, we are comforted by the fact that eventually, with the ultimate downfall of the descendants of Yishmael, we will merit the final redemption by our righteous Moshiach”. Cohen concluded his comments to Breaking Israel News with with a spiritual challenge to those who are waiting for the Messiah to come and redeem humanity. “Yishmael typifies the power of prayer. He himself was born out of the power of the prayer of his mother Hagar. To this very day, the Arabs excel in prayer, which occupies a significant place in their daily ritual. In order to counteract the power of their prayer, we need to improve the concentration and intensity of our own prayers”.

Via WND: Think you’ve got enough to worry about with collapsing economy, terrorism, wars and rumors of wars? Think again. Have you been paying attention to what appears to be an increase in volcanic activity across the planet? There’s a 5 percent to 10 percent chance in the next 80 years, scientists say, one of these eruptions will kill millions of people and poison the atmosphere beyond the imagination of anything man’s activity could do in 1.000 years. And no one is yet making any plans to deal with the calamitous possibilities. One more thing – the earth is actually in “volcano season,” as a recent study of volcano activity over the last 300 years has revealed. In a scientific report published in 2015, experts at the European Science Foundation concluded that large volcanic eruptions posed the greatest risk to human survival – greater, in fact, that an asteroid collision with earth, human activity leading to climate change and nuclear war. Such an eruption would be of a similar size to the explosion of Tambora on Sumbawa, Indonesia, in 1815, which killed around 100.000 people at the time, or another one that hit Iceland in 1783 that immediately killed 9.350 but spewed huge amounts of sulfuric aerosols, ash and other gases into atmosphere causing “one of the most important climatic and socially repercussive events of the last millennium”, said the report. In Iceland an estimated 20 to 25 percent of the population died in the famine and from fluorine poisoning after the fissure eruptions ceased. Around 80 percent of sheep, 50 percent of cattle, and 50 percent of horses died because of dental and skeletal fluorosis from the 8 million tons of hydrogen fluoride that were released. The resulting famine that afflicted Egypt in 1784 caused nearly one sixth of the country’s population to die. In Great Britain the summer of 1783 was known as the “sand summer” because of the ash fallout and an estimated 25.000 people died due to breathing problems. Extreme weather hit much of Europe, North America and the Gulf of Mexico for several years in the aftermath of the eruption, says the report. The year following the Tambora eruption is known as “the year without summer”. But with higher populations, dependence on global travel, interdependence on food chains and technology, a similar eruption in a certain location could have far more dire results, the scientists warn. Writing in their report “Extreme Geo-hazards: Reducing the Disaster Risk and Increasing Resilience,” the experts warned last year in a study that did not elicit much media coverage that preparations for such a calamitous event are so far woefully inadequate or entirely non-existent. “Although in the last few decades earthquakes have been the main cause of fatalities and damage, the main global risk is large volcanic eruptions that are less frequent but far more impactful than the largest earthquakes,” the report said. “Due to their far-reaching effects on climate, food security, transportation, and supply chains, these events have the potential to trigger global disaster and catastrophe.The cost of response and the ability to respond to these events is beyond the financial and political capabilities of any individual country". The report, presented at the general assembly of the European Geosciences Union in Vienna last April, looked at the main geo-hazards facing the world including earthquakes, drought, asteroid strikes, floods, tsunamis, hurricanes, avalanches and wildfires. It concluded that large to extreme earthquakes and tsunamis had been more common in the past 2,000 years and had occupied most of the world’s disaster response resources. “Volcanic eruptions can have more severe impacts through atmospheric and climate effects and can lead to drastic problems in food and water security, as emphasized by the widespread famine and diseases that were rampant after the Laki 1783 and Tambora 1815 eruptions,” the report said. “Hence extreme volcanic eruptions pose a higher associated risk than all other natural hazards with similar recurrence periods, including asteroid impacts”. Another recent discovery by Cambridge scientists is that volcanoes are “seasonal,” with significant increases in eruptions and major eruptions in winter months – beginning in November and ending in April. A study of volcanic activity published in 2004 in the Journal of Geophysical Research found volcanic eruptions seem more likely to occur when it is winter in the northern hemisphere. The discovery came when one researcher, Ben Mason, who was doing his doctoral thesis on the patterns of erupting volcanoes found he was regularly typing January and February far more often than June, July and August. That led him to study volcanic activity over a 300-year period. The Cambridge study suggests that just as volcanos can affect the weather, so the weather can somehow affect volcanos. Sea levels tend to fall when it is winter in the northern hemisphere when sea water shifts to land. Most of the continents lie in the northern hemisphere, and most of the rain, ice and snow falls in the winter months, to compress the bedrock by centimeters and slightly alter the shape of the Earth. These seasonal changes are big enough to be measured by satellite laser-ranging instruments, and by ground-based global positioning system monitors. They are also big enough to affect the planet’s rotation very slightly.
