Fears Grow of a Himalayan Tsunami as Glaciers Melt

World

Melting glaciers and rising temperatures are forming a potentially destructive combination in the deep ravines of Nepal’s Himalayan foothills, and the Phulping Bridge — on the Araniko Highway linking Kathmandu with the Chinese border — is a good place to see just how dangerous the pairing can be.

A bare concrete pillar stands there, little noticed by the drivers of trucks, laden with Chinese goods, that rattle along at high speeds across the bridge, about 110 km from Kathmandu. The pillar is all that’s left of the original Phulping Bridge, which was swept away by floodwaters in July 1981. The deluge was not caused, as is common, by monsoon rain, but by the bursting of a glacial lake. The force of the raging torrent was strong enough to dislodge boulders 30 m across. They still lie in the Bhote Koshi River.

Terror in London Sparks Tensions, Upsurge in Islamophobic Attacks

World

Violence and fear travel swiftly, and faster still in the era of tweets and status updates and 24-hour rolling news. Just after 2 p.m. on May 22, police answered a call to an incident in Woolwich, southeast London. A 25-year-old soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, leaving the local barracks, had been hit by a car and then hacked to death in front of horrified onlookers. One of his alleged killers, later identified as Michael Adebolajo, linked the attack to the British military presence in Muslim countries. “We must fight them as they fight us, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth,” he said, waving a bloodied cleaver. Video, filmed by an onlooker, was quickly picked up by news organizations and disseminated on social media.

At 7:15 p.m., a man, reportedly armed with a knife, threw an incendiary device into a small mosque in Braintree, a market town…

In the latest government/Obama scandal of scandals Eric Holder, whom we know has just got to go before he further ruins the rep of the DOJ. James Rosen who is the head of Fox has made his rounds on the airwaves.  Is Eric after him in particular? It seems that Rosen might be a spy!

With the press, in the worthless state they find themselves often in the tank for Obama anyway except for a precious few press and media outlet DOJ or rather the press, has a big friend in  the WH in the form of the Dem-controlled government.  Fox News seems to be the main target of the illegal requests for information. But that is only the beginning of this scurilous scandal.

Is Dan Brown reading “The Trough”?

 Dan Brown has a brand new book. http://www.amazon.com/Inferno-Robert-Langdon-Dan-Brown/dp/0385537859/ref=pd_rhf_ee_p_t_1_7M8V#reader_0385537859Here is an insider link from Amazon on some pages, a lot in fact, of this book.

The title is simply “Inferno” as in Dante’s inferno. I postulated some years back and posted it on this web site that using letters and reading the symbology if you will, that Dan Brown was Dante Bruno (brown), which would have been his name had he used it isntead of Aligheri.

The book is also an audiobook which is quite expensive but I will read or listen to it eventually. In what I’ve read so far he uses one of my methods of reading letters to uncover truth.

Now that I’ve met the character I was missing when I wrote my book I should be able to return to that in future it seems. Until then, I keep looking and finding.

update: I’m still here!

The end of this school year saw me jettison some things. The first to go was my prolific blogging both here and on blogcritics. I can’t say I don’t miss it. It did not pay here nor there. So I thought I would make my own money. I opened a stock account and as reporting now and again–it’s going gangbusters.

I have doubled my initial 10K startup. Correction: I did a quick and dirty look at the withdrawals from my porfolio and they come to 11K, and I still have 15K of stock left. So if I sold every position now, I would actually be ahead a whopping 15,000 since January 2013!

I was only in the market to make a little money as in interest on account that I was not getting and this bull market happened on my way to making a little interest.

Everyone is scratching their heads over this market. I am ringing the register with glee.

I know I’ve met the person I was looking for to complete my story. Things are not going smoothly or as expected so I have nothing to say about this meeting except that we met.
