UPDATE: NASA Heightened Concerns of Cosmic Ray Influence on Humans and Earth

SpaceX, is a Commercial Resupply Service (CRS-12) mission to the International Space Station  (ISS) currently manifested to be launched on August 13th, 2017. The mission was contracted by NASA and is flown by SpaceX. It will fly the new Dragon capsule. The Falcon 9 rocket’s reusable first stage will attempt a controlled landing on Landing Zone 1 (LZ1) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Its main mission is to measure dangerous, life-threatening galactic cosmic rays. This project, called the Cosmic-Ray Energetics and Mass investigation (CREAM), features instruments to measure the charges of cosmic rays ranging from hydrogen nuclei up through iron nuclei, over a broad energy range. Researchers report once the ISS astronauts unpack it, the modified balloon-borne device will be placed on the Japanese Exposed Facility for a period of at least three years.

Here is the ‘rub’, a word now popularly use in broadcast news, NASA highlights the very real danger astronauts and cosmonauts will face is the serious consequences from exposure to high-energy galactic cosmic rays, including direct damage to DNA and changes in the biochemistry of cells and tissues.

According to principal investigator Eun-Suk Seo of the University of Maryland Institute for Physical Science and Technology: Seo, says: “People on Earth are protected from these rays by the Earth’s atmosphere and magnetic field”. But what has not been taken into account is the current 14% increase of cosmic ray measurements in just over that last 24 months. Additionally, the quickening rate of Earth’s magnetic field weakening of which both indicators the dangers to humans and Earth are already in-play.

CREAM experiments conducted in six balloon flights at 25-mile (40-kilometer) altitudes over Antarctica have yielded a limited understanding of galactic cosmic rays. More study is needed to better understand the time-linked-means of how and at what pace the GCRs begin to have a measurable effect on our lives and planet in the years to come. The established three-year CREAM mission aboard the space station will significantly expand knowledge of cosmic radiation and what it might take to protect interplanetary travelers in the future.

Military Application:

One final project onboard SpaceX cargo is provided by the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command Army Forces Strategic Command. Chip Hardy, the program manager for the “Kestrel Eye” program, presented an overview of providing real-time information to ground troops regarding enemy location and movement.

Kestrel Eye’s purpose, he said, is to “reduce tactical surprise” and “achieve overmatch at the squad level” by demonstrating operational prototype nanosatellites that make it possible to capture space-based tactical-level intelligence and situational awareness and make synchronized mission-command decisions on the move.

BREAKING NEWS: Ring Of Fire Starts to Light Up with Earthquakes

A series of earthquakes have occurred over the last 48 hours around the ring of fire. This is exactly what I would expect as we come closure to this windows apex. Although it would be more pleasant being able to say coming earthquakes will remain about the same magnitude, but that would be disingenuous, and in fact, telling you this sequence of earthquakes is all there is would contribute to ones anxiousness.

Below is the list of this recent earthquake string

Magnitude 6.2 Earthquake Hits Philippines

(Aug. 11)An earthquake of magnitude 6.2 hit the Philippines’ northern island of Luzon on Aug. 11th and was felt in the capital Manila, shaking buildings and forcing the evacuation of offices and schools.There were no immediate reports of deaths or injuries in the quake, which the United States Geological Survey earlier measured at 6.6. The quake struck at 1:28 pm (0528 GMT) 10.7 km (6.6 miles) southeast of Nasugbu, in the province of Batangas, at a depth of 168 km (104 miles). No tsunami warning was issued by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, which put the magnitude of the quake at 6.3, and said it expected aftershocks.

5.8 Magnitude Quake Hits Chile

(Aug. 12) The earthquake struck around 25km north east of Santiago at around 3.15am Aug. 12th (7.15 UK time), according to the European-Mediterranean Seismological Center. The quake struck at a depth of 74km and was felt in Las Condes, Puente Alto, Maipu and across the border in Argentina. Concerned residents among the city’s 5.1 million inhabitants told of shaking buildings after being woken up in the middle of the night by the tremor.

Mag. 5.6 Earthquake Hits Off Coast of Peru

(Aug. 12) A 5.6-magnitude undersea earthquake struck the Pacific Ocean off of Peru’s southern coast on August 11th , triggering landslides on local roads that killed one person and wounded two, a regional governor said. Arequipa Governor Yamila Osorio added on Twitter that authorities were working to clear roads affected by landslides from surrounding hills. The 41-kilometer deep (25.5 miles) quake struck the Pacific some 89 km (55.3 miles) from the coastal city of Canama late on Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Magnitude 6.5 Quake Strikes Off Indonesian Island of Sumatra

(Aug. 13) An earthquake of magnitude 6.5 struck west of Indonesia’s island of Sumatra on Sunday, the United States Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage in the quake, which hit at a depth of 67 km (42 miles), at a distance of 81 km (50 miles) west of the city of Bengkulu.

NOTE: Having faithful support people like yourself, has made a great difference in my energy to carry-on. I just wanted to let you know how much appreciate your continued patronage​.

There Will Be Civil Disturbance

Yes, Charlottesville, Virginia does fit my prediction of civil disturbance. North Korea remains at a 67% of a military exchange. But let me turn the page for a second. I think this would be a good time to remind ourselves, there are events (people,places,things) that are not subject to ‘fate’. If there is a causal mechanism which contributes to human disturbance, then I would suggest there is also perhaps a less defined energy, that when brought together in collective consciousness, can shift a mood or perception thereby providing a different outcome.

I’m not suggesting you can just pray an event away by and of itself, and I must admit I am far from being a pacifist, actually I’m a little embarrassed of some of my low-brow moments, but I do believe charged particles are charged particles – magnetic fields are magnetic fields, chemistry is chemistry. No, we can’t pray the coming earthquakes away, but we sure can be best prepared for them, and to a degree, facilitate their occurrence including the ability to minimizing their effective destruction. Okay, time to hug the kids – oh, and could you pass the potatoes.  Cheers

Coming Tonight: NASA Escalates Concern Over Galactic Cosmic Rays Influence on Humans and Earth

NASA highlights the very real danger astronauts and cosmonauts will face is the serious consequences from exposure to high-energy galactic cosmic rays, including direct damage to DNA and changes in the biochemistry of cells and tissues.

The question is: With a now 19% increase in cosmic ray flux just over the last 24 months, and a weakening magnetic field which is reducing approx. 5-7% every decade, and with its cycle perhaps 85% complete – I would suggest it is more than just astronauts and cosmonauts that face serious consequences as we march ahead in these natural cyclical affairs.

 

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The Battle Between ‘Disclosure vs Omission’

Before I disclose coming announcements regarding civil disturbance and Earth changing events, I think it is important to gain a foundation regarding the nature of news which will be coming forth.

Over the next hours, days, and weeks I will be sending out what will be extraordinary breaking news occurrences and developments. I feel it is most important to maintain a sense of groundedness and empowerment. The upcoming articles will be alarming, and there is the risk of setting off inherent defense triggers every human possess. It is this very necessary ‘fight or flight’ defense posture which is ‘hard wired’ for survival. However, it is also this very human and compulsory reflex which can work against us.

It will be up to each and every one of us, to stride toward minimizing, or perhaps better stated ‘preparing’, for events ahead which could generate distorted ’cause and effect’ reactions, often triggered by past experiences. It is also important to have some understanding of our ability, or inability, to handle rapid change. It is my belief we will need to practice our innate skills and powers of adaptability.

As events unfold in the next days and weeks, it will be more important than ever before to sharpen our coping skills and survivor instincts. This preparation involves the whole being such as: Physical (basic survival equipment); Mental (ability to handle stress, anxiety, fear, bewilderment); Spiritual (having a sense of purpose, a understanding of process, evolution, transition, and synchronicity. I might add, a general understanding of cycles does present a sorted level of comfort and you may find some assurance that you are just going crazy.

Here In-Lies My Dilemma

There have been several studies on how the public at large would react to sudden, shocking, and possible life threatening scenarios. Examples: 1) Nuclear Attack 2) Natural Disasters 3) Asteroid heading directly at Earth.

On Sept. 11th 2001, and the following days, weeks, and months, various government officials on our television screens arguing for and against allowing the public to be informed of the when-where-how of what happened, and what is going to happen. We heard it was not wise to disclose information which would “panic” the public out of a fear of anarchy, violence, suicides, and general civil-unrest. It was argued, the better way to “minimize” panic was through informing the public of very real and ongoing events, thereby giving the public a chance to understand, prepare and adjust to whatever threats were announced.

My studies have directed me to the latter argument of ‘disclosure’. I believe it is far better to assist in minimizing shock and surprise through education, information and preparation. The theory of ‘omission’ to better serve the public is simply out-dated, assuming it was ever useful at all. I believe we have evolved significantly in our abilities to acquire and process news as it occurs, regardless of its imminent dangers.

Therefore, I have decided to disclose information to you as I receive it. I trust that you can, and will, use your gift of “discernment”. Yes, it is true that many could be prone to suffer negative reactions such as PTSD consequences, but at this time, I believe it is better to be “aware and prepare”. In fact, there are studies which state clearly it is the action of being “aware and prepare” which will minimize the effects of shock, denial and bewilderment.

Tornado-Like Funnels Captured Over Cornwall As Torrential Rain And Flash Floods Hit Parts Of The UK

A series of tornado-like funnels have been caught as they spiraled across Cornwall and other parts of the country yesterday.

Flash floods hit some parts of the UK as a month’s worth of rain fell in 12 hours.

Footage captured by Damon Webb shows one twister spiralling above the ground on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

And in south east Cornwall, a funnel cloud was captured over houses in Saltash. Last week a similar cloud was filmed over Fowey.

Weather experts declared the phenomenon was a funnel clouds, stressing it only becomes a tornado if it touches the ground.

Britain sees around 30 to 35 tornadoes each year, though they rarely cause significant damage.

The funnels were seen as the British summer took a depressing turn.

In parts of eastern England, more than a month’s worth of rain fell in just 12 hours.

Torrential downpours caused flash floods in parts of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire and heavy rain also affected the World Athletics Championships at the London Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Met Office figures showed 58mm of rainfall was recorded at Painshill Reservoir in Surrey in just 12 hours during Wednesday – more than the county’s August average monthly rainfall of 56.8mm.

Some of the worst flooding was reported near the port city of Hull in East Yorkshire. An area in Withernsea was submerged under three feet of standing water.

A spokesman for Humberside Fire and Rescue Service said: “From 7pm we received calls relating to flooding in Withernsea.

“The water is three feet deep in some streets and this is where there is a real risk of homes flooding and we are keeping a close eye on them.

“There are also reports of cellars flooding in some pubs in the town.”

Numerous incidents were also reported across the Grimsby and Immingham areas.

There were also flood-related incidents further south.

Essex County Fire and Rescue Service received calls to incidents of localised flooding, while standing water in south-east London, caused disruption to trains between Dartford and the capital.

Competitors at the World Athletics’ Championship at the London Stadium had to battle a deluge of torrential rain with the track and long-jump run-ups under streams of water and thousands of spectators soaked by the persistent rain.

The worst of the wet weather is now over, although some rain was still falling in London early during Thursday’s rush-hour.

But it should clear up for most of the UK during Thursday.

Much of the country, apart from north-west and far east, should enjoy a fine, clear day with plenty of sunshine.

It will feel quite warm in the sunshine with top temperatures around London expected to reach 23C.

But this will be short-lived with more widespread rain arriving on Friday, although it is not expected to be as heavy as Wednesday’s downpours.

The weekend should also be pleasant with fine weather predicted for Saturday and Sunday and just the occasional shower.

BREAKING NEWS: NOAA Hurricane Prediction Updated and Raised by “Double”

In addition to yesterday’s announcement of this year’s hurricane season being updated to “extremely active”, news regarding the swarm of earthquakes at Yellowstone supervolcano shows no signs of letting up. Swarms at Yellowstone are not unexpected, however, once the earthquakes reach magnitude 4.0 and higher, everything shifts and seismologists, geologists, and volcanologists are put on alert. There was one isolated event on June 15 measuring 4.4 mag., which did set off alarms, but all following quakes measured below the 4.0 threshold.

I expect for both earth changing events and civil disturbance to escalate as we draw closer to the Aug. 21 solar eclipse. From here on-out over the next three weeks, it will perhaps be increasingly uncomfortable to read (become aware) of scenarios as they unfold. For this reason, I will be producing my articles on “Disclosure vs Omission” and something called “Crisis Fatigue”. My personal research suggests “disclosure” is the better option, however, not everyone agrees with my conclusion.

NOAA Announces 2017 Hurricane Season Will Be Twice as Active

Today NOAA issued the scheduled update for its 2017 hurricane season outlook. Forecasters are now predicting a higher likelihood of an above-normal season, and they increased the predicted number of named storms and major hurricanes. The season has the potential to be extremely active, and could be the most active since 2010.

In just the first nine weeks of this season there have been six named storms, which is half the number of storms during an average six-month season and double the number of storms that would typically form by early August. An average Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1-November 30, produces 12 named storms, of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.

“Today’s updated outlook underscores the need for everyone to know their true vulnerabilities to storms and storm surge,” said FEMA Administrator Brock Long. “As we enter the height of hurricane season, it’s important for everyone to know who issues evacuation orders in their community, heed the warnings, update their insurance and have a preparedness plan.”

JUST IN: Earthquake Swarm Continues at Yellowstone Supervolcano

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations (UUSS) is monitoring an earthquake swarm which is currently active on the western edge of Yellowstone National Park. The swarm began on June 12th, 2017 and continues to this day composed of over 1,600 events with the largest measuring 4.4 magnitude. The M4.4 event has an oblique strike-slip moment tensor solution.

The swarm consists of one earthquake in the magnitude 4 range, 8 earthquakes in the magnitude 3 range, 134 earthquakes in the magnitude 2 range, 505 earthquakes in the magnitude 1 range, 879 earthquakes in the magnitude 0 range, and 35 earthquakes with magnitudes of less than zero.  These events have depths from surface to 14.0 kilometers, relative to sea level. At the time of this report, there were 125 felt reports for the M4.4 event.

North Korea Update: Probability of conflict now raised to 67% to occur within 21 day window.

BREAKING NEWS: Earth Changing Events and Civil Disturbance Has Begun

I will address North Korea in a few minutes, but first, below is a list of events which have occurred within the last 24 hours. Unfortunately, I expect to be making announcements such as these on almost a daily basis. Like all scientific predictions which fall in the unfavorable outcome, it is indeed a double-edge sword. On the one hand it is satisfying to be accurate and verifiable; on the other hand I know the outcome can bring grief or anxiety. Sure, if it’s 10,000 miles away it’s just a statistic, but if it is next door, it is a tragedy.

Working in Emergency Management and Red Cross, I know all too well of such things. Within my next few articles, I will write extensively on what I have titled “Omission vs Disclosure”; what is the better way.

Deadly 6.5 Mag. Earthquake Hits Sichuan, China

An earthquake measuring 6.5 magnitude struck a remote and mountainous part of the southwestern province of Sichuan on today, the US Geological Survey said, killing five people and trapping 100 tourists in a popular scenic spot.

The quake hit a sparsely populated area 200 km (120 miles) west-northwest of the city of Guangyuan at a depth of 10 km (6 miles), the USGS said. It had earlier put the quake at magnitude 6.6 and 32 km deep.

Weather Service Confirms 3 Tornadoes Struck Oklahoma

The National Weather Service says three tornadoes struck northeast torOklahoma, including an EF2 twister that caused heavy damage and injured at least 30 people near midtown Tulsa. Meteorologist Bart Haake said Monday that the Tulsa tornado touched down at 1:19 a.m. Sunday. Eight minutes later an EF1 tornado struck the southeast Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow and an EF1 tornado then touched down five minutes after that near Oologah, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa.

Rare Tornado Hits Arizona

The National Weather Service confirmed a faint landspout tornado south of Downtown Phoenix late Thursday afternoon. No damage was reported from the brief twister. Based on various reports and Doppler radar imagery, the tornado occurred around 5:03 PM. Thursday’s tornado is the first in Metro Phoenix since a confirmed twister near Goodyear on October 6th, 2015.

EF-1 Tornado Hits Salisbury, Maryland

The National Weather Service has confirmed that a EF-1 tornado ripped through a 1 1/2-mile stretch of Salisbury on Monday afternoon. The storm cut a path that extended from the Princeton Homes neighborhood off College Avenue, across Salisbury University athletic fields and to the corner of Route 13 and Dogwood Drive, Mayor Jake Day said during a briefing Tuesday morning. City crews had cleared most streets of debris a day after a tornado, but evidence of it was still evident on private property.

Two Tornadoes Hit Ontario, Canada

Environment Canada has confirmed two tornadoes touched down near Huntsville, Ont., on Friday. The agency says the first one struck on the south side of the central Ontario town just before 4 p.m., then tracked about one kilometer northeastward over land and then another three kilometers over a lake as a tornado waterspout. A second and stronger tornado measuring EF-2 struck several minutes later about 15 kilometers northeast of Huntsville and caused structural damage to some cottages and heavily damaged some trees.

Tropical Storm Franklin Now On Hurricane Watch

A hurricane watch and tropical storm warning has been issued by the government of Mexico ahead of Franklin’s second landfall in parts of eastern Mexico’s Veracruz state, including the city of Veracruz. To what degree it restrengthens is a bit uncertain, due to competing factors of increased wind shear – a negative for strengthening – and very warm heat content in the Bay of Campeche – a positive for strengthening. Either hurricane or tropical storm-force winds may arrive as soon as late Wednesday along the coast, particularly in Veracruz state.

Flash Flooding Swamps Parts of South Texas

A flash flood warning for Bexar County has been extended until 2:15 p.m. Monday as heavy rain and thunderstorms continue to roll through San Antonio.

Up to 5 inches of rain have hit isolated pockets of Bexar County with widespread rain amounts of 2-4 inches since the storm hit the downtown area around 7 a.m. and has caused street flooding and road closures across the city.

The National Weather Service said heavy rains triggered flash floods in parts of the Houston metropolitan area on Tuesday. The NWS said a flood warning is in effect for Texas’ northeastern Fort Bend County, eastern Waller County and western Harris County after 4 inches to 6 inches, with isolated amounts more than 8 inches, fell throughout the area early Tuesday.

Regarding North Korea…

At this time I’m afraid the escalation does not look good. I give it a 60% chance weapons interaction will occur. More on this later.

Thank you for your continued support.

BREAKING NEWS: Today Earth Changing Events Begins; Here Is What to Look For

Today my 14 day window prior to the Full Solar Eclipse Aug. 21, then it continues 14 days after the event and the following is what to monitor over this period.

I expect large earthquakes measuring 7.0 or larger world-wide. I also believe we will witness moderate to large earthquakes measuring 5.9 – 7.0 + in North America along the west coast, but also less-usual locations such the central states and the southeast coast. There are other earth changing events expected during this 28 day window, which I will further address in a coming article, but first I wish to address a bit more related to the ’cause’.

As mentioned in prior articles, the most influential impetus as to the cause of escalating events is rapid temperature shifts. However, there is a significant second element to the full solar eclipse causation concerning geo-physical and bio-psycho-social disturbance. It is a phenomenon known as ‘gravitational waves’.

During a solar eclipse, the Moon shields a limited region of the Earth’s atmosphere from the heating effect of the solar radiation. This shadow travels through the Earth’s lower atmosphere at supersonic velocity, causing a propagation of charged particles emitting internal gravity waves that form a bow wave about the shadow region. Tentative estimates of the amplitude of this wave indicate that it will be detectable well outside the area where the eclipse can be observed directly.

The process of a gravity wave bow shock, appears to have a destabilizing effect on expected space weather, but cause perturbations in atmospheric winds and fluid displacement i.e. oceans, rivers, oil, sand-type soil and perhaps natural gas. Of course this in-turn would be produce the environmental setting for such things as earthquakes, volcanoes, fissures, tornadoes, and hurricanes.

Thank you for your continued support.
