Fukushima Nuclear Leak
- and Other Serious Situations
Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of strongest storms ever, hits central Philippines
(CNN) -- With 25 million people in its path, one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever observed, Super Typhoon Haiyan, made landfall Friday morning in the Philippines, the country's weather service reported.
At least three people, including a 1-year-old, were killed. The infant and another person were hit by tornado debris in Cotabato province, the country's National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said.
In Cebu, a woman died when she was hit by a falling coconut tree, according to the provincial government of Cebu.
Tens of thousands of people in vulnerable areas of the central Philippines were evacuated earlier as the monster storm spun toward the islands.
With sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph), Haiyan was likely the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall anywhere in the world in recorded history. It will take further analysis after the storm passes to determine exactly if it is a record.Click here to read it all
Ray's note: clearly things are getting stranger and scarier on planet earth - 380 kph winds!
Fuel Removal From Fukushima's Reactor 4 Threatens 'Apocalyptic' Scenario
An operation with potentially "apocalyptic" consequences is expected to begin in a little over two weeks from now - "as early as November 8" - at Fukushima's damaged and sinking Reactor 4, when plant operator TEPCO will attempt to remove over 1300 spent fuel rods holding the radiation equivalent of 14,000 Hiroshima bombs from a spent fuel storage tank perched on the reactor's upper floor.
Fukushima Reactor 4 While the Reactor 4 building itself did not suffer a meltdown, it did suffer a hydrogen explosion, is now tipping and sinking and has zero ability to withstand another seismic event.
The Japan Times explained:
To remove the rods, TEPCO has erected a 273-ton mobile crane above the building that will be operated remotely from a separate room.
[...] spent fuel rods will be pulled from the racks they are stored in and inserted one by one into a heavy steel chamber while the assemblies are still under water. Once the chamber is removed from the pool and lowered to the ground, it will be transported to another pool in an undamaged building on the site for storage.
Under normal circumstances, such an operation would take little more than three months, but TEPCO is hoping to complete the complicated task within fiscal 2014.Click here to read it all

Yellowstone Supervolcano Alert: The Most Dangerous Volcano In America Is Roaring To Life
"Right now, the ground underneath Yellowstone National Park is rising at a record rate. In fact, it is rising at the rate of about three inches per year. The reason why this is such a concern is because underneath the park sits the Yellowstone supervolcano -- the largest volcano in North America. Scientists tell us that it is inevitable that it will erupt again one day, and when it does the devastation will be almost unimaginable. A full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would dump a 10 foot deep layer of volcanic ash up to 1,000 miles away, and it would render much of the United States uninhabitable. When most Americans think of Yellowstone, they tend to conjure up images of Yogi Bear and 'Old Faithful', but the truth is that sleeping underneath Yellowstone is a volcanic beast that could destroy our nation in a single day and now that beast is starting to wake up."Click here to read it all
New Orleans Water Flushed for Brain-Eating Amoeba
"Louisiana health officials are using chlorine to kill a brain-eating amoeba lurking in the New Orleans water supply.
The amoeba, Naegleria fowleri, causes a deadly form of meningitis when inhaled through the nose. It has killed at least two children this summer.
"'We know that chlorine kills Naegleria fowleri, which is why it was critical that the parish proactively begin flushing its water system with additional chlorine last week; how the amoeba infiltrated the water supply remains unclear.'
"Early symptoms of a Naegleria infection include a severe frontal headache, fever, nausea and vomiting, according to the CDC. But those can swiftly give way to a stiff neck, seizures, confusion and hallucinations as the amoeba makes its way up through the nasal cavity into the brain.
"'After the start of symptoms, the disease progresses rapidly and usually causes death within about five days,' the according to the CDC. 'People should seek medical care immediately whenever they develop a sudden onset of fever, headache, stiff neck and vomiting, particularly if they have been in warm freshwater recently.'"Click here to read it all
'Iran Two Weeks Away From Weapons-grade Uranium'
"Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to build an atomic weapon within two weeks and has, 'in a certain way,' already reached the point of no return in its nuclear program, a former senior International Atomic Energy Association official said Monday.
"A report released last week by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security which stated Iran could muster enough uranium for a bomb by converting all of its 20-percent enriched stockpile within 1 to 1.6 months."Click here to read it all
Shiites: Syria War Will Ignite End Times
Iranian soldiers giving what looks like a Nazi salute.
"A Lebanese reporter for the Al-Monitor Middle East news service explains that Iran and Hezbollah view the Syrian civil war not only in a strategic context, but in a prophetic one. In their belief, the radical Sunnis will conquer Syria for a short period of time and then Iranian forces will intervene on their way to destroying Israel.
"The unnamed reporter points out that Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah is, like Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, 'known for being a strong believer' in the Shiite prophecy that Iran will lead an End Times war against Islam's enemies. At that time, the Mahdi will 'reappear' and defeat the infidel.
"According to the author, Iran and Hezbollah rely upon a book of prophecies called Al-Jafr to guide them. Teachers of this book say that the Syrian leader will be killed in a civil war during the End Times.
"A Sunni leader will take over Syria and persecute Shiites, Allawites and Christians. The persecution will continue until an Iranian army invades Syria via Iraq, killing this Sunni leader on the way to capturing Jerusalem. Once Jerusalem is taken, the Mahdi will appear. Interestingly, in a modern context, this means that Hezbollah is fighting to preserve the regime of a man (Bashar Assad) that they believe will be killed."Click here to read it all
UPDATE 2 -- Saudi Spy Chief Says Riyadh to "Shift Away From U.S." Over Syria, Iran
DOHA, (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's intelligence chief has said the kingdom will make a 'major shift' in relations with the United States in protest at its perceived inaction over the Syria war and its overtures to Iran, a source close to Saudi policy said on Tuesday.
"Prince Bandar bin Sultan told European diplomats that Washington had failed to act effectively on the Syrian crisis and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, was growing closer to Tehran, and had failed to back Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government revolt in 2011, the source said.
"'The shift away from the U.S. is a major one,' the source close to Saudi policy said.
"The United States and Saudi Arabia have been allies since the kingdom was declared in 1932, giving Riyadh a powerful military protector and Washington secure oil supplies.
"The prince's initiative follows a surprise Saudi decision on Friday to reject a coveted two-year term on the U.N. Security Council in protest at 'double standards' at the United Nations.
"Kerry said he had told the Saudi minister that no deal with Iran was better than a bad deal. 'I have great confidence that the United States and Saudi Arabia will continue to be the close and important friends and allies that we have been,' he told reporters in London."Click here to read it all
22 Reasons to be Concerned About the U.S. Economy as We Head Into the Holiday Season
Analysts are very concerned about what
the holiday season will bring.
"Are we on the verge of another major economic downturn? In recent weeks, most of the focus has been on our politicians in Washington, but there are lots of other reasons to be deeply alarmed about the economy as well.
"Economic confidence is down, retail sales figures are disappointing, job cuts are up, and American consumers are deeply struggling. Even if our politicians do everything right, there would still be a significant chance that we could be heading into tough economic times in the coming months.
"Our economy has been in decline for a very long time, and that decline appears to be accelerating. There aren't enough jobs, the quality of our jobs continues to decline, our economic infrastructure is being systematically gutted, and poverty has been absolutely exploding.
"Things have gotten so bad that former President Jimmy Carter says that the middle class of today resembles those that were living in poverty when he was in the White House. But this process has been happening so gradually that most Americans don't even realize what has happened. Our economy is being fundamentally transformed, and the pace of our decline is picking up speed. The following are 22 reasons to be concerned about the U.S. economy as we head into the holiday season."Click here to read it all
U.S. Not a Super Power and Not Credible Anymore -- Karen Hudes
"Former World Bank lawyer Karen Hudes says the global opinion of America is tarnished. Hudes contends, 'Is the United States a credible super power? The answer to that is "we are neither."'
"Hudes goes on to warn, 'The biggest game changer is something that people are just ignoring, and they ignore it at their peril, and that is the creation of a fourth credit rating agency. . . . If they do not get our act together, they will have no choice . . . We are losing our credit rating.'
"Hudes, who is also a whistleblower, charges, 'There is fraud and corruption from top to bottom in the financial system.' As far as global central banks are concerned (including the Fed), Hudes claims, 'The central bankers have a scam going on. It's a Ponzi scheme. The citizens of the world are paying interest on their currencies. These currencies are not being issued by the governments; they are being issued by private bankers.'
"Don't give up hope because Hudes says, 'The U.S. has to come around to the rule of law. . . . and we are on track with a 95% likelihood, and that is why I think the dollar is not going to tank.'

The de-Americanisation of the World has Begun - Emergence of Solutions for a Multipolar World by 2015
"'Building a de-Americanised world': this statement would have raised a smile a few years ago. At most it would have passed for provocation by Hugo Chavez. But when we are seeing the United States' bankruptcy in real-time and it's an official Chinese press agency that says so, the impact isn't the same. In reality, it's describing out loud a process which is already well underway:
"If the whole world is holding its breath before this pathetic game of the US elite; it's not out of compassion, it's to avoid being swept away in the fall of the world's first power. Everyone is trying to free itself from American influence and let go of a United States permanently discredited by recent events over Syria, tapering, shutdown and now the debt ceiling. The legendary US power is now no more than a nuisance and the world has understood that it's time to de-Americanise."
"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Summary The Fukushima nuclear leak, the super typhoon hitting the Philippines, the potential for Middle East war - all of these things should be driving us to seek a closer walk with our God. He is eager for each one of us to turn to Him as He greatly desires fellowship with His children. Get into the Word, His Word and study for therein are the words and the way of life.
"And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh." (Luke 21:28)
