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.

The Causal Effect Between Cosmic Rays – Geo-Physical and Bio-Psycho-Social Outcome

Here in Part-II, I will enhance the understanding of the causal effect between (charged particles) cosmic rays associated with a) geo-physical i.e. earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes etc. and  b) bio-psycho-social i.e. depression, disorientation, anxiety, and depression turned inward ‘rage’.

My research suggests during the period eclipse transition, which I surmise to have a process of expansion and contraction prior to and after its apex. In this case that would be Aug. 21 2017. As associated with transitional sequence, I suggest there are periods of significant cosmic ray fluctuation. This process would be in addition and co-occurring with periods of rapid temperature flux closest to the apex event.

In a coming article, I will explain the causal effects mostly related to geo-physical occurrences, which I expect to begin next week. Watch for my reports as they occur. In this article my focus remains on charged particles effect on humans and how this could be the basis for a presumed connection to civil unrest and war.

To best convey the connection between cosmic rays and humans is to present how medical procedures are being used today to treat an assortment of mental health diagnosis such as depression, ADD, bi-polar, anxiety, and ptsd. It has also been effective for dementia and other memory problems like concussions and (TBI) traumatic brain injury often associated with combat veterans from explosives.

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) involves the use of a magnetic coil which produces a magnetic field and placing it against the scalp. Capacitors from the TMS machine pass electrical currents through the coils that create brief, pulsating magnetic fields that pass through the skull and create electric currents in the neurons or nerve cells of the brain. Charged particles created by the electromagnetic field releases natural brain chemistry in neurons and synaptic receptors.

The choice of stimulation parameters determines whether the effects of stimulation are excitatory or inhibitory. For example, two single pulses separated by less than 5 milliseconds can produce intracortical inhibition, while two single pulses separated by a gap greater than 10 and less than 30 milliseconds can produce intracortical facilitation.

This accounts for the reason some people may experience feelings of increased energy, hyperactive, or anxious during the duration of a powerful CME (coronal mass ejection) or large X-class solar flare – while others express feelings of depression, lethargy, or disoriented.

I hope this best explains how the fluctuation of charged particles in the way of cosmic rays (and solar rays) can have a direct causal effect on humans. Furthermore, how the expansion and contraction of charged particles influenced by a full solar eclipse can set a template of for civil unrest and war motivated by fear and disorientation.

Thank you for your continued support.

Coming Next: How the same fluctuation of charged particles that can elicit human emotional discord, can produce a discord of its own with Earth in the way of tectonic shift and mantle plume instability giving way to dramatic earth changing events.


Our Solar System’s ‘Shocking’ Origin Story

According to one longstanding theory, our Solar System’s formation was triggered by a shock wave from an exploding supernova. The shock wave injected material from the exploding star into a neighboring cloud of dust and gas, causing it to collapse in on itself and form the Sun and its surrounding planets.

New work from Carnegie’s Alan Boss offers fresh evidence supporting this theory, modeling the Solar System’s formation beyond the initial cloud collapse and into the intermediate stages of star formation. It is published by the Astrophysical Journal.

One very important constraint for testing theories of Solar System formation is meteorite chemistry. Meteorites retain a record of the elements, isotopes, and compounds that existed in the system’s earliest days. One type, called carbonaceous chondrites, includes some of the most-primitive known samples.

An interesting component of chondrites’ makeup is something called short-lived radioactive isotopes. Isotopes are versions of elements with the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons. Sometimes, as is the case with radioactive isotopes, the number of neutrons present in the nucleus can make the isotope unstable. To gain stability, the isotope releases energetic particles, which alters its number of protons and neutrons, transmuting it into another element.

Some isotopes that existed when the Solar System formed are radioactive and have decay rates that caused them to become extinct within tens to hundreds of million years. The fact that these isotopes still existed when chondrites formed is shown by the abundances of their stable decay products — also called daughter isotopes — found in some primitive chondrites. Measuring the amount of these daughter isotopes can tell scientists when, and possibly how, the chondrites formed.

A recent analysis of chondrites by Carnegie’s Myriam Telus was concerned with iron-60, a short-lived radioactive isotope that decays into nickel-60. It is only created in significant amounts by nuclear reactions inside certain kinds of stars, including supernovae or what are called asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars.

Because all the iron-60 from the Solar System’s formation has long since decayed, Telus’ research, published in Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta, focused on its daughter product, nickel-60. The amount of nickel-60 found in meteorite samples — particularly in comparison to the amount of stable, “ordinary” iron-56 — can indicate how much iron-60 was present when the larger parent body from which the meteorite broke off was formed. There are not many options for how an excess of iron-60 — which later decayed into nickel-60 — could have gotten into a primitive Solar System object in the first place — one of them being a supernova.

While her research did not find a “smoking gun,” definitively proving that the radioactive isotopes were injected by a shock wave, Telus did show that the amount of Fe-60 present in the early Solar System is consistent with a supernova origin.

Taking this latest meteorite research into account, Boss revisited his earlier models of shock wave-triggered cloud collapse, extending his computational models beyond the initial collapse and into the intermediate stages of star formation, when the Sun was first being created, an important next step in tying together Solar System origin modeling and meteorite sample analysis.

“My findings indicate that a supernova shock wave is still the most-plausible origin story for explaining the short lived radioactive isotopes in our Solar System,” Boss said.

Boss dedicated his paper to the late Sandra Keiser, a long-term collaborator, who provided computational and programming support at Carnegie’s Department of Terrestrial Magnetism for more than two decades. Keiser died in March.

BREAKING NEWS: Cosmic Ray Flux, Geo-Political Unrest, Wars, and Earth Changing Events

What I am about to tell you will need to be categorized as pseudo-science and I take full responsibility for publishing this report and I must address this as theoretical conjecture (see summary). This area of my research has not been peer-reviewed, however, the content I am about to present is factual and does have historic repeatable concurrence. In other words, the results are not by accident, coincidence, or luck. What is still yet unknown is the exact when, how, where mechanics of cosmic rays flow effects human/animal emotions and behavior.

The following does not meet the disclaimer of “conjecture”; it is strongly peer-reviewed factual data.

The next two paragraphs address the connection between periods of charged particle fluctuation i.e. cosmic rays – and human behavior especially its effect on the brains “hippocampus”. The hippocampus is a small organ located within the brain’s medial temporal lobe forming an important part of the limbic system – the region that regulates emotions. It is also enables our ability to maintain long and short-term memory, most significantly with long-term memory. This organ plays an important role in a person’s physical coordination, also elicits the feeling of being contiguous, connected, or part-of.

The science community, such as NASA, as well as the medical community have been studying the effects of charged particles on human physical and emotional behavior since the 1970’s. Both disciplines are fully aware of what external magnetic stimulus can do in both advantageous and detrimental ways.

Note: Before I continue a quick mention to those who have supported my work. I now have been able to join three journals and hope to sign-up and attend a coming physics symposium in the near future. I hope to continue this journey and bring the latest research and discoveries directly to you. If you can help, see banners at bottom. Cheers, Mitch

I know one can get lost with too much information, therefore, I think it best to break this up into two or maybe three parts. Remember, this article is to address the connection between cosmic rays, earth changing events such as earthquakes, volcanoes, various extreme weather episodes – and now to include wars and societal discord.

Some of you may have noticed the following statement I made in my July 25th article: “I would suggest the current mode of global political dysfunction, may have some roots in history showing a pattern of “what happens below, reflects what happens above”. This suggest the turmoil which results from earth changing events appears to be in-sync with emotional geo-political unrest”.

– Watch North Korea and Eastern Europe –

Above I addressed the what and how cosmic rays can affect humans (and of course Earth itself), now to address the negative consequences of a continuing upsurge of cosmic ray inundation. As it relates to the space community, they already know the effects on astronauts who occupy the International Space Station, and now a heavy concentration of study on the long-term effects of a planned journey to Mars. Similarly regarding the medical community, well documented study’s demonstrate the imbalance of magnetic stimulus can cause an array of emotional symptoms such as depression, anxiety, disassociation, and hyper-sensitivity.

Time to wind this up and I will present a Part-II coming next.

The following will need to be considered as conjecture, although based on historical data:

To summarize, and I take this extremely seriously, I am going on record with an educated hunch (prediction) which I believe is only the second time I’ve done so over my 22 year history with Earth Changes TV, then Earth Changes Media, and now Science Of Cycles. In conjunction with my 28 day window as related to the Total Solar Eclipse occurring Aug. 21 2017 – which consist of 14 days prior to [eclipse] and 14 days after, will begin on this coming Monday (Aug. 7th) and ends on Monday Sept. 4th 2017, I believe the following will have an 80% + chance of occurring.

Thank you for your continued support.

Sun’s Core Rotates Four Times Faster Than Its Surface

The Sun’s core rotates nearly four times faster than the sun’s surface, according to new findings by an international team of astronomers. Scientists had assumed the core was rotating like a merry-go-round at about the same speed as the surface.

“The most likely explanation is that this core rotation is left over from the period when the Sun formed, some 4.6 billion years ago,” said Roger Ulrich, a UCLA professor emeritus of astronomy, who has studied the sun’s interior for more than 40 years and co-author of the study that was published today in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics. “It’s a surprise, and exciting to think we might have uncovered a relic of what the Sun was like when it first formed.”

The rotation of the solar core may give a clue to how the sun formed. After the Sun formed, the solar wind likely slowed the rotation of the outer part of the Sun, he said. The rotation might also impact sunspots, which also rotate, Ulrich said. Sunspots can be enormous; a single sunspot can even be larger than the Earth.

The researchers studied surface acoustic waves in the Sun’s atmosphere, some of which penetrate to the Sun’s core, where they interact with gravity waves that have a sloshing motion similar to how water would move in a half-filled tanker truck driving on a curvy mountain road. From those observations, they detected the sloshing motions of the solar core. By carefully measuring the acoustic waves, the researchers precisely determined the time it takes an acoustic wave to travel from the surface to the center of the Sun and back again. That travel time turns out to be influenced a slight amount by the sloshing motion of the gravity waves, Ulrich said.

The researchers identified the sloshing motion and made the calculations using 16 years of observations from an instrument called GOLF (Global Oscillations at Low Frequency) on a spacecraft called SoHO (the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory)—a joint project of the European Space Agency and NASA. The method was developed by the researchers, led by astronomer Eric Fossat of the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur in Nice, France. Patrick Boumier with France’s Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale is GOLF’s principal investigator and a co-author of the study.

The idea that the solar core could be rotating more rapidly than the surface has been considered for more than 20 years, but has never before been measured.

The core of the Sun differs from its surface in another way as well. The core has a temperature of approximately 29 million degrees Fahrenheit, which is 15.7 million Kelvin. The sun’s surface is “only” about 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit, or 5,800 Kelvin.

Ulrich worked with the GOLF science team, analyzing and interpreting the data for 15 years. Ulrich received funding from NASA for his research. The GOLF instrument was funded primarily by the European Space Agency.

SoHO was launched on Dec. 2, 1995 to study the Sun from its core to the outer corona and the solar wind; the spacecraft continues to operate.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: New Research Shows Quake-Causing Cracks on Pacific Sea Floor

New research published in the journal ‘Science Advances’, has focused their study off the west coast of North America giving seismologists a better understanding of what one scientist describes as “the single greatest geophysical hazard to the continental United States”.

Zach Eilon, a geophysicist at the University of California Santa Barbara, has developed a new method that uses an array of scientific instruments spread across the sea floor to measure shock waves that travel through the planet’s crust. “Because we think this particular phenomenon is strongly related to temperature and to molten rock beneath the Earth, this is a technique that can be applied to volcanoes to get a better sense of their plumbing system,” says Eilon.

Eilon’s research targets the Juan de Fuca plate, which runs several hundred kilometers off the coast between southern British Columbia and northern California and is the youngest and smallest of the planet’s 13 major tectonic plates. The collision zone in this region has the potential to generate massive quakes and destructive tsunamis, which occur when the plates overcome friction and slip past one another, quickly displacing huge amounts of water.

His data suggest the interior of the Juan de Fuca plate is cooler than previously believed, meaning the edge that is being pushed westward below the North American plate is able to bring with it more water. The water acts as a lubricant and increases the likelihood of the slipping that leads to a quake.

Geoff Abers, an earth-sciences professor at Cornell University who co-authored the paper with Eilon, said improvements in sea-floor technology and the sheer number of sensors that were deployed make this project the first time researchers have been able to study an entire tectonic plate in the ocean. “We’re not directly looking at the just earthquake cycles, but we’re looking at the broader, theoretical framework for how the Earth works and getting a much better handle on that,” Abers said.

Thank you for your continued support. We’re now about half way there.
