Unspun News 180122

Everyday Bernie gathers together a collection of recent world events from alternative and main stream sources. Here they are — Unspun out to all of you.


“U.S. Military Presence in Syria is Fatal Flaw“

“As Washington Inflames Tensions in Syria, Turkey Launches Airstrikes Against U.S.-Backed Kurdish Forces; More than 100 targets were bombed Saturday, days after Turkey threatened attacks unless U.S. withdrew support for Kurdish forces”

“As information continues to emerge confirming that there was a ballistic missile attack against Hawaii that was intercepted on January 13, the investigation begins to shift from what happened, to who was responsible. In this article, I analyze various sources describing the attack ….” A very interesting analysis indeed ……. recommended.

“All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives Thursday.”

The silence continues re the Fukushima Unit 2 inspection…

“A team of geologists have discovered remnants of a 280-million-year-old fossil forest in Antarctica. They suggest that the trees of the forest survived through periodic extremes of total darkness and uninterrupted sunlight.”

“Newly discovered fossils show that moths and butterflies have been on the planet for at least 200 million years.”

“An island volcano in Papua New Guinea erupted again Sunday, sending plumes of steam and ash into the air. Thousands of people have been evacuated from islands surrounding Kadovar Island off the South Pacific nation’s north coast….”

“The Moroccan Minister of Transport, Abdelkader Amara, told parliament on Monday that nearly 5,000 kilometers of national, regional, and provincial roads were closed this year due to “exceptional” snowfall.”

M6.3 @ 124km, Tarapaca, Chile.

US – “”It’s definitely some weird weather” 60 feet high waves (almost 20 metres) pound the Oregon Coast smashing windows and damaging buildings”

“You may think it’s quite ludicrous to even contemplate that the Moon could be harbouring as many as 250 million citizens, but it’s not.”

A rather strange site, but oddly compelling …..


“Possible Nova in Circinus”

“The NASA space probe Juno has once again captured the jaw-dropping beauty of Jupiter in another breathtaking image of the gas giant posted to the space agency’s Twitter feed Thursday.”

HUH? “The strange thing about this display was not its beauty–stunning auroras are seen routinely in Abisko–but rather its timing. The solar wind stream hadn’t yet arrived.” … “”With each pulse of magnetism, electric currents flowed through the ground outside our observatory and bright auroras appeared overhead.” Now I’d say that that is pretty damn significant? Certainly from an EU perspective….

“Although many US hospitals require all medical personnel who are in direct contact with patients to get influenza shots every autumn, the Israel Medical Association only recommends the vaccine to its 25,000 members, while it refuses to allow those who have been vaccinated to wear a tag or pin saying so.“ Well, how ‘bout that?

“A recent study shows that psilocybin-assisted therapy mitigates depression by increasing emotional connection—the exact opposite of anti-depressants.”

“Flu epidemic set to hit Britain within fortnight as 8.3 million now suffering symptoms”

DON’T read this if you have a heart…. it’ll get broken…
“A former smuggler shares the secrets of how gangs are stealing baby orangutans to sell as pets or status symbols, pushing an already endangered species closer to the brink.”

“…The short term dopamine driven feedback loops that we have created are destroying how society works: no civil discourse; no cooperation; misinformation; miss-truth. And it’s not an American problem. This is not about Russian ads. This is a global problem. So we are in a really bad state of affairs right now in my opinion. It is it is eroding the core foundations of how people behave by, and between each other — and I don’t have a good solution. You know my solution is… I just don’t use these tools anymore.”

~~Chamath Palihapitiya, former Facebook executive in charge of user growth.

There is much disinformation and misinformation ‘out there’. I do not have the time to check the credentials of every writer that I place in Unspun, so please be aware that your discrimination, used in parallel with your open-minded intellect, is your best friend – ALL the time!

Had not thought about ear injuries from yucca plants. They are all around here. Good info for gardeners.

Check out the photos of the Japanese rocket – they are magical.
