Apes Like Us

Taking a closer look at a vanishing world ...

"To unravel the mysteries of our closest living relatives, we must make space for them in the wild. In the Ivory Coast alone, chimpanzee populations have decreased by more than 90% in the past 17 years. A devastating combination of increasing human numbers, habitat destruction, poaching and infectious disease severely endangers chimpanzees. Leading scientists warn us that, if nothing changes, chimps and other great apes will have only 30 years left in the wild."

Have a listen ...

Did Jethro Tull Influence The Eagles' 'Hotel California' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_California)?

Is it possible that very same Eagles song was actually itself inspired by an older Jethro Tull track?

While noting the two bands shared an uncomfortable concert tour together in the early ’70s ...

With Hotel California later being released in 1976 ...

It does really make me wonder ...

The real reason streetcars are making a comeback


Published on Aug 9, 2017

It’s mostly about economic development.

Starting in the late 20th century, modern streetcar proposals started rippling across municipalities in the United States. They’re touted as infrastructure carrying benefits ranging from the social to economic and the environmental. But these projects often make appearances in the news as costly, blunder-filled experiments in public policy.

Cities are willing to bet big on this technology for its potential to develop the local economy. But there is some disagreement as to whether the streetcar is driving this progress, or if it is simply the result of planning *around* the streetcar.

Marilyn Monroe (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_Monroe)

The mystery continues ...

https://metrouk2.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/marilyn2.jpg

She died fifty five years ago this week ...

http://a.abcnews.com/images/Entertainment/HT-MarilynMonroeHouse-05-rc-170425_4x3_992.jpg

"Marilyn Monroe’s Brentwood Home, where she lived her final days ...

The Brentwood home once owned by Marilyn Monroe jusy recently has sold for $7.25 million, or $325,000 above the asking price.

The residence, built in 1929, was the only property the singer, actress and model owned independent of a husband. She bought the property in the early 1960s following the end of her third marriage, to playwright Arthur Miller, for $75,000.

The hacienda-style house came partially furnished, and her mortgage payments were $320 a month, according to reports in The Times following Monroe’s death in 1962.

Set behind gates at the end of a cul-de-sac, the single-story home has 2,624 square feet of living space, four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Common areas include a formal living room with a fireplace, a family room and an office. Saltillo tile floors and beamed ceilings are among the interior details.

Outdoors, lawns surround a brick patio and kidney-shaped swimming pool. Mature trees, a guest house and a small citrus grove fill out the half-acre grounds.

The property had been listed for $6.9 million. Lisa Optican of Mercer Vine had the listing. Richard Stearns of Partners Trust represented the buyer.

Monroe, who was 36 when she died, starred in box-office hits including “Some Like It Hot” (1959) and “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” (1953)."

Patty Greer: Media Corp. Suppresses Crop Circles and Free Energy Tech

Randy Maugans


Film maker and researcher, Patty Greer talks to Randy Maugans in this first part of a two part show, about her career in researching and experiencing the crop circles of the UK.

Patty has completed 8 full feature UFO films in the last 10 years that offer explosive new evidence, footage and data about Crop Circles and Plasma Physics. Without misleading or confusing mis-information her movies were filmed in the UK Crop Circle fields where she interviewed the people who returned to the fields year after year like she did. She’s a woman who is bold, direct and intuitive who spent 9 weeks each summer laying in Crop Circles in 2007 and 2008, returning in 2010, 2011, and 2014 with cameras. She has visited more than 100 UK Crop Circle personally and fearlessly filmed mind-boggling multi-dimensional footage for years!

Biography:

Patty Greer is one of the hardest working UFO filmmakers in the world. She completed 8 full feature UFO movies in the last 10 years that received 8 prestigious awards. Her movies offer unrelenting explosive footage and evidence about the Crop Circle phenomenon. Greer’s conclusion is that Crop Circles are produced by counter-rotating spinning plasma vortices coming out of the earth! These spinning plasma vortices are layered with different frequencies with distinct boundary conditions, including earth frequencies, water frequencies, sometimes human consciousness frequencies (when people pray or meditate for a Crop Circle message), and sometimes ET frequencies, but not necessarily all of them in every formation.

Greer is bold, intuitive and telepathic which is how she co-produced and filmed 8 movies with ‘Other Dimensional Beings’ without any training, research or team. Patty spent 9 weeks of summer (2007 and 2008) laying in UK Crop Circles and has visited more than 100 UK Crop Circles personally over the years. Greer fearlessly filmed Crop Circles from small planes with no door on her side and barely a seat belt on for years! Her newest film “Crop Circle Diaries” received 2 new EBE Awards at the 2017 International UFO Congress Convention Film Festival for: Best Feature Film 2017 & The People's Choice Award.

Removal of Westerly mystery object scrubbed, rough surf to blame

WESTERLY, R.I. (WPRI) — We’ll all have to wait a little while longer for the mystery to be solved surrounding an object sitting under the water off East Beach in Westerly.

Rocky’s Tree Service was planning to pull an eight-legged metallic object up from the ocean floor Tuesday night. But the extrication has been canceled due to deteriorating conditions on the beach, East Beach Association President Peter Brockmann confirmed.

“We’ve had high surf and strong rip tides for the past couple of days. Not sure if [it’s] related to Gert, but [the storm] will make matters worse for the next couple of days,” Brockmann said.

There’s no word yet on when the removal will be rescheduled.

The circular object is located near the Niantic Avenue entrance of East Beach. Brockmann told Eyewitness News on Friday that neither local residents nor the harbor master could recall seeing the object prior to last summer.

For many years during my earlier adult life, I worked in a medical hospital/ER setting ...
From there my reactions and perceptions of human beings dying would be formed ...

Remarkably during this time I also witnessed (had the honor) being with both my
parents (on the separate occasions) during their terminal existing days/moments ...

I am forever grateful, having been privy to the prior experiences which greatly eased and
assisted in getting through those trying times ...

SPACE FENCE MENACE! SUBORBITAL SERVITUDE -
DARK JOURNALIST & ELANA FREELAND


Published on Aug 17, 2017

The Space Fence: Covert Agenda Explained
In this exciting episode Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes back Chemtrails Expert Elana Freeland. Her classic book, Chemtrails HAARP & The Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth, is the definitive book on these suppressed subjects. Her new book, Under An Ionized Sky: Chemtrails & Space Fence Lockdown, is the first major in-depth examination of the murky covert program that has been under development since the 1980s under the Reagan Administration where it was a major aspect of the SDI Star Wars Program.

Roots of the Space Fence: SDI Star Wars
When President Reagan announced that the US would be pouring vast resources into a major weaponization of Space with what he called the 'Strategic Defense Initiative' or 'Star Wars' it was widely assumed that it was meant as a missile shield program to deflect Nuclear Missile Launches from Russia. It's true purpose may have had just as much to do with protecting the world from 'An Alien Threat' as Reagan suggested in a UN Speech, that would bring the world together to fight a common enemy.

An Ionized Atmosphere: Space Fence Deployment
When the Soviet Union Fell ion December 26th, 1991, it was widely assumed that the SDI program was abandoned along with this historical event. In fact it appears that all of the research around Star Wars was reintegrated into a covert initiative for building a Space Fence that would serve as a Major Global Surveillance and Control Grid. What was missing in the 1980s to realize this vision, came along in the 1990s with the development HAARP and the successful efforts to Ionize the Atmosphere. With this being achieved over the last two decades, the conditions are perfect for the full deployment of The Space Fence and all of its terrifying implications of worldwide dominance over communications and a new paradigm of Space being Weaponized.

A casual, brief podcast on some current issues that includes:

~The energetic systolic attack modes; the blackhole sun eclipse, A.I.
~How researchers get taken over by the very forces they oppose, e.g. Harald Kautz-Vela
~The A.I. infection of certain media figures; the neurological aspects of social media; we are plugging into a torrent of energetic communications in a hive mid mode.
~We are interfacing with people at very rapid speeds; we have control of the vector of engagement. It is not one-to-one, but one-to-many in exponential numbers.
~The issues behind community 0n the net and social media.
~The robotic aspects of people who assume A.I.-like personas; the rate of data being pushed out to the participants; we cannot process data at machine level speeds.
~The Machine Messiah…
~How rapid data speeds outstrip discernment and judgment filters. We are processing binary code into a human interface.
~Targeting and machine learning methods that adapt to our ongoing levels of perception. Refinement of data to match end users’ tastes.
~The system wars: war on the nervous system, war on the endocrine system.
~We also discuss the August 21 American Eclipse and some tips on dealing with energies and taking care of the body and spirit.

UFO Files Russian Roswell

S 2 E 5


Welcome to the remote, top-secret military base Kapustin Yar, the Soviet "Area 51"--where the wreckage from no fewer than eight UFO crash incidents and their occupants were transported and studied between 1945 and `91. We expose this never-before-seen installation through interviews, on-camera tours, dramatic reenactments, and extensive recreations. We also explore the many Russian UFO crashes over the decades and show the ways in which Soviet UFO research scientists at Kapustin Yar used and processed the wreckage...and the alien bodies. Join us as we investigate the facts and myths surrounding Kapustin Yar, as well as the many UFO crashes that still circulate in the lore and consciousness of the Russian people.

May i suggest partaking of this ancient wisdom with reflection in daily proportional dosages ... :thup:


"The Gospel According to Thomas (http://gnosis.org/naghamm/gthlamb.html)is an early Christian non-canonical sayings-gospel that many scholars believe provides insight into the oral gospel traditions. It was discovered near Nag Hammadi, Egypt, in December 1945 among a group of books known as the Nag Hammadi library."


The Gnostic Christ ...
The Gospel of Thomas Unveils an Ancient Wisdom

Frank DiVita - A journey to the ocean of wisdom ...

"The Gospel of Thomas remains one of the most popular and approachable alternative writings of early Christianity. Within this apocryphal text, though, are found mystic layers that connect to other Gnostic Gospels and the wisdom of arcane masters—including some startling truths about the Archons, the Demiurge, the nature of reality, and the origins of the universe. We mine for these secrets that grant us answers to humankind’s destiny. Our guest also relates his personal journey from a materialist to a mature Gnostic that included guidance from entities the world does not know."


About

Frank DiVita - author - VOICE of the ANGEL: The Healing Oracles from the City of God

In 1970, an awakening experience left the author with the gift of oracles similar to that of Nostradamus. Although simple in structure, at first the oracles were almost impossible to comprehend. In time, Frank noticed that the words started to cross-reference themselves, slowly revealing an ancient language. Once understood, this language would become a Rosetta Stone that unlocks the "Hidden Mysteries" of God's written Word; illuminating for us the deeper meaning of religion, past lives, karma, soul connections, and the nature of Good and Evil. "The Oracles of Ephesus" will unveil hidden knowledge from the Bible, the Bhagavad-Gita, the Nag Hamaddi writings and the Dead Sea scrolls, while helping you understand yourself and your relationship with your Creator.

Amit Goswami discusses 'The Everything Answer Book: How Quantum Physics Explains Love, Death and the Meaning of Life'. Goswami s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but also the path to understanding consciousness, life, death, God, and the meaning of life. Quantum physics offers an antidote to the moral sterility of scientific reductionism and mechanistic materialism, and holds the key to the clearest, most coherent understanding of our universe. In short, quantum physics is indeed the theory of everything. In 'The Everything Answer Book' Goswami and his colleagues discuss, among other things, how quantum physics affects our understanding of thoughts, feelings and intuitions, karma, death and reincarnation, dreams, evolution and the purpose of existence. Crucially, it points the way towards the spiritualization of politics, economics, business, education, and wider society itself, all of which are vital steps if our species is to survive and thrive through the challenging times ahead.

The New Justice System (The Right Way To Deal With Crime) - Teal Swan -


Published on Aug 26, 2017

The New Justice System will reform the way we handle criminals and criminal justice. Teal Swan explains that we have multiple personalities within ourselves and that these inner selves are creating the problems in society. In Crime and Criminals these selves are created through shame. When we shame and punish criminals we are reinforcing these protective personalities that were created by shame in the first place and making the world a much more dangerous place. The way we deal with criminals therefore has to change and Teal Swan explains how.

Man captivates horses with native flute

'Most of us have heard of the old children's tale of the Pied Piper. The story talks about a piper that could attract animals with the sound of his magic flute. It seems that the story may have had some merit as something very similar happens in the video right here!

At the Animu Luce horse farm in Belgium, Michael Telapary plays on a High Spirits Contra Bass Flute in F# for several horses. Their reaction? You gotta see it to believe it!

Maybe there was so truth in that old pied piper story because after all, the story and what is happening to these horses is very similar, minus the magic flute part. Who knows what is making these horses so attracted to this flute sound? What we do know is that this makes for a very beautiful shared musical moment.'

New Mick Ronson Documentary, 'Beside Bowie'


By Daniel Kreps

David Bowie's Spiders From Mars cohort, guitarist Mick Ronson, is the focus of a new documentary called, Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story.

Bowie provided exclusive voiceovers for the film, which looks at the late Ronson's underappreciated career as a sideman for artists like Bob Dylan (as a member of the Rolling Thunder Revue), Lou Reed (on Transformer), John Mellencamp (on "Jack and Diane") and main guitarist on five Bowie albums, including Hunky Dory, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars and Aladdin Sane.

Beside Bowie will feature live footage of Ronson in action in addition to archival previously unreleased backstage footage, unseen Mick Rock photographs and more.

"Both Mick Ronson and David Bowie together were the ultimate duo. They performed and recorded like magicians and created masterpieces that will live on forever," director Jon Brewer said in a statement. Ronson died in 1993 at the age of 46.

Beside Bowie: The Mick Ronson Story will begin a nationwide run of cinemas starting September 1st, with a home video release to follow on October 27th. Check the film's site for more information. (https://www.cardinalreleasing.com/beside-bowie-the-mick-ronson-story/)"

A strange arachnid like looking nuts and bolts object ...

Removal of Westerly mystery object scrubbed, rough surf to blame

WESTERLY, R.I. (WPRI) — We’ll all have to wait a little while longer for the mystery to be solved surrounding an object sitting under the water off East Beach in Westerly.

Rocky’s Tree Service was planning to pull an eight-legged metallic object up from the ocean floor Tuesday night. But the extrication has been canceled due to deteriorating conditions on the beach, East Beach Association President Peter Brockmann confirmed.

“We’ve had high surf and strong rip tides for the past couple of days. Not sure if [it’s] related to Gert, but [the storm] will make matters worse for the next couple of days,” Brockmann said.

There’s no word yet on when the removal will be rescheduled.

The circular object is located near the Niantic Avenue entrance of East Beach. Brockmann told Eyewitness News on Friday that neither local residents nor the harbor master could recall seeing the object prior to last summer.

SPACE FENCE MENACE! SUBORBITAL SERVITUDE -
DARK JOURNALIST & ELANA FREELAND


Published on Aug 17, 2017

The Space Fence: Covert Agenda Explained
In this exciting episode Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes back Chemtrails Expert Elana Freeland. Her classic book, Chemtrails HAARP & The Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth, is the definitive book on these suppressed subjects. Her new book, Under An Ionized Sky: Chemtrails & Space Fence Lockdown, is the first major in-depth examination of the murky covert program that has been under development since the 1980s under the Reagan Administration where it was a major aspect of the SDI Star Wars Program.

Roots of the Space Fence: SDI Star Wars
When President Reagan announced that the US would be pouring vast resources into a major weaponization of Space with what he called the 'Strategic Defense Initiative' or 'Star Wars' it was widely assumed that it was meant as a missile shield program to deflect Nuclear Missile Launches from Russia. It's true purpose may have had just as much to do with protecting the world from 'An Alien Threat' as Reagan suggested in a UN Speech, that would bring the world together to fight a common enemy.

An Ionized Atmosphere: Space Fence Deployment
When the Soviet Union Fell ion December 26th, 1991, it was widely assumed that the SDI program was abandoned along with this historical event. In fact it appears that all of the research around Star Wars was reintegrated into a covert initiative for building a Space Fence that would serve as a Major Global Surveillance and Control Grid. What was missing in the 1980s to realize this vision, came along in the 1990s with the development HAARP and the successful efforts to Ionize the Atmosphere. With this being achieved over the last two decades, the conditions are perfect for the full deployment of The Space Fence and all of its terrifying implications of worldwide dominance over communications and a new paradigm of Space being Weaponized.

CERN D-WAVE AI HAARP & SPACE FENCE COUNTDOWN! DARK JOURNALIST & ELANA FREELAND




SPACE FENCE: COUNTDOWN TO ACTIVATION In this exciting Part 2 episode, Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt interviews Chemtrails HAARP Author Elena Freeland on her upcoming book, Under an Ionized Sky: Chemtrails & Space Fence Lockdown. Elana's research into the true purpose of the obscure and controversial project that was ostensibly set up to collect 'Space Debris' has now led her to see it as part of a massive effort to remake the Earth's atmosphere in order to launch the most ambitious Global Surveillance Project that will even make Human DNA searchable.

DEVELOPING AN IONIZED SKY When the Soviet Union Fell in 1991, it was widely assumed that the Reagan Bush era SDI Star Wars program was abandoned at that point. Instead, all of the research around Star Wars was reintegrated into a Black Budget Project for building a Space Fence that would serve as a Major Global Surveillance and Control Grid. What was missing two decades ago to realize this vision, came along later with the development HAARP and the successful efforts to Ionize the Atmosphere. With this being achieved over the last twenty years, the conditions are perfect for the full deployment of The Space Fence and all of its terrifying implications of Solar System control over communications and a new paradigm of Space being Weaponized.

D-WAVE & CERN According to Elana's research, two major steps in the deployment of the Space Fence have been achieved with the activation of the Hadron Particle Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland and the development of the Quantum Computing chip called D-Wave which in theory can now act as a full Artificial Intelligence Hub making hundreds of decisions in nano-seconds.

Some experts see the CERN Hadron Collider as a danger to the environment and cite detrimental changes to the magnetosphere of the Earth when the experimental machine is turned on. Elana goes even further suggesting that CERN, the Space Fence and the D-Wave chip form a complete ring for total domination of the Earth's atmosphere and in fact will eventually make each individual a resonant, electric particle tower for global surveillance!

The Russians Are Coming
(Super Rich Russians Documentary)

Real Stories

Published on Sep 9, 2017


The Russians Are Coming lifts the lid on the exclusive world of super rich Russians who want an English Public School education for their children. Dina Karpova epitomises the aspirational and determined Russians who are embracing the capitalist ethos of the West. A glamorous international property broker, she capitalises on Russia’s love for all things English. Dina has sent her own son to school in the UK and now she is fast-tracking her clients’ children into England’s high society by introducing them to aristocratic families and getting them into the most prestigious Public Schools. The film follows the journey of 11-year-old step brothers, Natan and Vasilli. Their businessman father, Boris, wants them to get into a top school and it is up to Dina and educational consultant Charles Bonas to prepare them in time for their interviews. The boys are sent on a bespoke course in Dorset to an aristocratic house where they learn how to shoot and play polo, in the hope of integrating them into English high society. They are also given intensive academic tutoring. But will Dina succeed in educating the boys in the ways of the English élite and giving them the social and academic skills they need to get into a top British Public School?

Tribute to Jim Marrs (The Conspiracy Show with Richard Syrett, Sept 3, 2017)

The Conspiracy Show With Richard Syrett


Published on Sep 14, 2017
The Conspiracy Show with Richard Syrett, originally broadcast September 10, 2017.

Acclaimed investigative journalist and beloved member of the conspiracy theory and UFO research community, Jim Marrs passed away suddenly last month. Jim was a great friend to this program, and a frequent guest. As a tribute, Richard replayed two of his most memorable appearances on this show.

In the first hour they discuss the horrific events of September 11, 2001. In the second hour they discuss tactics of the Illuminati how they have co-opted trusted institutions in order to control and reduce the population. From the food we eat, the water we drink to the air we breathe, everything these days seems capable of killing us.

Brendan Howlin - Modern Druidry

LegaliseFreedom1


Published on Sep 21, 2017
“Have you ever thought that there must be a better way to life your life?” In his 2014 book The Handbook Of Urban Druidry - Modern Drudiry For All and its 2016 follow-up The Urban Ovate – The Handbook Of Psychological Druidry, Brendan Howlin holds up a lens through which you and I, if we so choose, may reconsider the path that we are on.

Distracted by rampant consumerism, browbeaten by scientific materialism, and fearful of a hostile world apparently plunging into chaos, a corrosive malaise is upon us in this still-new millennium, our lives stripped of meaning and purpose by superficial societies which deny the significance of either.

With its reverence for nature, deep ecological awareness, and belief in respect for all beings, the ancient spiritual order of Druidry offers a set of guiding principles which can be adopted and adapted by anyone, religious or otherwise, to help cope with the challenges of modern life and live in harmony with the natural world, reconnecting with wholeness and, ultimately, with ourselves.

The Red Lion (British Drinking Culture Documentary)

Real Stories


Published on Sep 22, 2017
The Red Lion is based on a very simple idea – take the most common name for a pub (The Red Lion) and then take the people who drink in the 600 pubs across the UK with that name to throw light on our drinking habits. What emerges is a unique portrait of Britain as a nation of drinkers – a documentary that, part hilariously, part disturbingly shows just how deeply booze and the boozer are woven into the warp and weft of British society and culture.

From the tipsy eighty year old widows to the 15-pints-a-day landlord. From the lonely singleton divorcee to the raucous student members of the university netball team, men and women, groups and individuals, young and old – we all use the pub and alcohol in our different ways. Is Britain as a nation in the grip of a serious drink problem? Or are we just having a little bit of fun – regularly?

In the eighties I ordered a pint of ale in London. The bartender served me and said, "A lady ordering a pint. Very rare, very rare." The ladies all drank half-pints of lager and lime.

We went to the Hare and Hound in the lake district (in the early 90s). We drank Old Peculiar. I ordered a half pint for the first round and pints after that. They were unsure of these crazy Americans at first but then, once we showed our appreciation for their delicious beer, they were totally cool.

Old Peculiar on tap is exquisite.

We have "pub signs" That we got at the Renaissance Festival. One is the Drunken Dragon. They're fun. I had a Mormon Missionary in my house once who could not stop frowning in disapproval at them and demanded and explanation. I said it's a fun family event and these remind me. She was not satisfied. (And I didn't give a hoot).

Couldn't resist this one ...


U.S. Navy Yup, That's a Dong in the Sky. Our Bad!!!



Look, up in the sky! That's definitely not a bird or a plane ... it's a giant freakin' penis.

That's right, the U.S. Navy is taking time out of, y'know ... defending the nation, to issue an apology for one seriously cocky pilot. The giant dong popped up Thursday in the sky over Washington State.

The Maverick-wannabe who pulled the stunt hails from the Whidbey Island naval station ... which prompted his superiors to say, "We find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable."

Get that? IF there was "training value" in it, we'd be seeing twigs and berries all over the sky.

Aim high!!!

There is no malicious content at Eye-Rise, Kathy. ;) But what is possible is that he stumbled upon a thread with a video or another link that his Avast Antivirus got triggered by for whatever reason.

Antivirus software mainly uses two mechanisms for detecting threats. The first is a local database of virus and other malware signatures, but this needs regular updating and it is always running at least two to three weeks behind on the evolution of malware development. The second mechanism is a heuristics scanner which attempts to assess a threat by looking at certain parameters in the incoming stream of bytes.

The screenshot Nothing has provided is either way too small to be able to tell what's really in that warning box. I'll see whether I can enlarge the dimensions to which an attachment gets rescaled by the forum engine, but this will only have an effect on future attachment uploads.

Attached photos and other images are static bitmaps, not scalable vector graphics. When you upload them as attachments to your posts, then they are effectively sized down to a preset size by the forum engine. But I'll see whether I can do something about the size. :hmm:





Well when I first posted the screen shot it wouldn't let me post because it hadn't been 10 seconds between the last one and it was going to get me to wait for 800 seconds...

Do please note that there were serious issues with the server of The One Truth around noon today (in Central European Time), and these issues had nothing to do with anything I had been working on in the past couple of days. This was definitely a server-side issue over at Interserver in the USA, and I don't have any access to that. :hmm:


And just before the site went down, Aragorn's name was in the "Staff currently online" list.

Yes, I was briefly online, but I couldn't open up any page anymore, so I went offline again after notifying Malc of the problem via email. Elen had also already contacted me via email — just a few minutes apart from my message to Malc — that she too could not connect anymore.

A very handy tool for checking whether the problem is at the server's end or at your own end is this site here (http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/). You fill in the domain name — without the "http(s)://" — of the website you're having trouble with, and then you hit the Enter/Return key and it'll tell you. ;)

China is dish serving up a future/now Schezwan style new kind of Media propaganda standard ...


https://c.ndtvimg.com/2018-11/1n2kmarg_ai-news-anchor,-xinhua_625x300_09_November_18.jpg


"China’s state news agency Xinhua this week introduced the newest members of its newsroom: AI anchors who will report “tirelessly” all day every day, from anywhere in the country.

Chinese viewers were greeted with a digital version of a regular Xinhua news anchor named Qiu Hao. The anchor, wearing a red tie and pin-striped suit, nods his head in emphasis, blinking and raising his eyebrows slightly.

“Not only can I accompany you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. I can be endlessly copied and present at different scenes to bring you the news,” he says.

Xinhua also presented an English-speaking AI, based on another presenter, who adds: “The development of the media industry calls for continuous innovation and deep integration with the international advanced technologies … I look forward to bringing you brand new news experiences.”

Developed by Xinhua and the Chinese search engine, Sogou, the anchors were developed through machine learning to simulate the voice, facial movements, and gestures of real-life broadcasters, to present a “a lifelike image instead of a cold robot,” according to Xinhua.

The broadcasters made their debut during China’s annual World Internet Conference, an event meant to be China’s Davos for the tech sector as well as a platform for China’s vision of the internet.


While China is home to some of the world’s largest tech companies and some 800 million internet users, its internet is one of the most controlled in the world. Observers worry China is turning into a digital police state, with technology from iris and gait recognition being deployed to monitor activists, ethnic minorities in places like Xinjiang, and regular citizens.

At the conference in Wuzhen in southern China, attendees saw their photos flash on a screen as soon as they passed through security checks using facial recognition. In a session on fintech, companies discussed cooperating with law enforcement, providing information for negligent citizens to be put on social credit blacklists.

“We are an important advocate for peace in cyberspace and a guardian of order,” said Huang Kunming, head of Communist Party’s propaganda department, speaking at the event. “China stands ready to safeguard the sound order of cyberspace.”

According to Xinhua, the AI technology is not limited to news presenting. The systems can be customised to different clients in other industries. Wang Xiaochuan, the head of Sogou, gave the example of a popular book reading app, Uncle Kai. “In the future, it could be your parents telling the story,” he said in an interview.

For Xinhua’s already tightly-scripted and controlled state news presenters, the AI anchors take things a step further. Video of the Chinese anchor quickly spread on social media in China, with many viewers impressed as they were

alarmed. “A little bit horrible,” one said, to which another responded: “Really scary.”

While praising the anchors, Xinhua and Sogou acknowledged their limits. “I, who was wholly cloned from a real-life host, have mastered broadcasting as well as the real host,” the Chinese-speaking AI anchor said. “As long as I am provided with text, I can speak as a news host.”

The Myth of Chemical Imbalance – Jerry Marzinsky

Freeman Fly

"Getting this information out before the Medical Mafia comes down on us is critical. To disrupt the medical mafia’s lies the most, is to expose that they have no evidence that schizophrenia is caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. There is no instrument to measure such an imbalance and they do not even know what the neuro-transmitter balance of the brain is or what it should be."

American Dialogue: The Founding Fathers and Us

US National Archives

"The story of history is often a conversation between past and present, and in American Dialogue, Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Joseph J. Ellis focuses on the often-asked question, “What would the Founding Fathers think?” Ellis gives us a deeply insightful examination of the relevance of the views of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and John Adams to some of the most divisive issues in America today.

In his latest book, Joseph Ellis once again looks back to the American founding for wisdom from Jefferson, Adams, Madison, and Washington. What did the words “the pursuit of happiness” and “we the people” mean then, and what do they mean now? How can the Founders help us frame the arguments we need to have about race, economic inequality, jurisprudence, and foreign policy? As the title suggests, and the Founders knew, argument itself is the answer."

Can our chaos be beautiful and artistic? Everything is an agenda and we need to cut through the muck to find our true selves."

David J. Moore - UFOs, Reality and Human Evolution Part One



David J. Moore discusses his book 'Evolutionary Metaphors: UFOs, New Existentialism and the Future Paradigm'.

People have been witnessing strange lights and objects in the sky for all of recorded history. Their modern guise as UFOs began in earnest during the 20th century, particularly in the wake of the Roswell incident in 1947. Despite thousands of reported UFO sightings, close encounters, abductions, and even crash landings, physical evidence for the existence of alien spacecraft and their inhabitants is practically non-existent. Shadow government cover-ups are claimed but official disclosure seems as far off as ever.

Other theories propose that UFOs may be inter-dimensional entities, or even individual or collective psychic projections. Whatever their true nature, the question remains – what lies behind them and what do they want? Do they present an existential threat to the Earth or are they merely messengers from some higher intelligence? In urging us to rethink the nature of time and space, and break down the dualistic barriers between mind and matter, are anomalous phenomena such as UFOs forcing us to wake up to a wider reality and if so, what might this mean for the future of humanity?

And very soon thereafter, he would decide to come and live (under majestic Mt Adams along the White Salmon River) for nearly a year to write his first book The Unfoldment: The Organic Path to Clarity, Power, and Transformation (https://www.amazon.com/Unfoldment-Organic-Clarity-Power-Transformation/dp/1601632142/ref=asc_df_1601632142/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312400961658&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16895490134813236639&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9033793&hvtargid=pla-523668221023&psc=1)

"Dr Roger Leir graduated in 1961 with a bachelor’s in science before qualifying as a certified podiatrist in 1964. But while on the surface, Leir appeared like any other up and coming medical professional, he also harboured a deep belief in alien life not only existing elsewhere in the universe but that could also be visiting Earth. This led to a strong interested in the concept of supposed alien implants embedded in alien abductees, to which Roger used his skills to try and uncover the truth"...

Washington May Become the First State to Legalize Human Composting


'What would you like to happen to your body when you die?'


Death Reimagined

"Grandma is in the garden. No, literally.

There’s something beautiful in deciding how one’s final moments should be confined to the memory of our loved ones. Advances in technology and changing mindsets seem to have people wondering why a coffin in the ground should have to be the only option of final resting place. Residents in Washington state have a brand new vision of returning to the Earth. Now a bill being sponsored in the state’s legislature could see Washington become the first state to legalize human composting.

A Tree of Me

The bill, backed by state Senator Jamie Pedersen, would allow for the “recomposition” of human remains, a process which speeds up decomposition and turns remains into a nutrient-packed soil which could be returned to families.

“People from all over the state who wrote to me are very excited about the prospect of becoming a tree or having a different alternative for themselves,” Pedersen told NBCnews.

Although “becoming a tree” and other futuristic burial ideas aren’t entirely new concepts, Washington would become the first state to allow human composting if the bill is passed. The idea isn’t just futuristic, it’s also economical. More and more Americans are turning to crowdfunding to support funeral costs, with the average funeral costing more than $7,000 in 2017, according to the National Funeral Directors Association. The recomposition process in comparison is somewhat cheaper with costs expected to fall around $5,500.

Safety First

The process is very similar to traditional composting. Unembalmed human remains are placed in a composting chamber and left to decompose with organic material like woodchips or straw. Air is occasionally pulled into the chamber to help microbes speed up decomposition and in about one month all that remains is a cubic yard of compost.

A five-month study, in which six donor bodies were decomposed, was led by researcher Lynne Carpenter-Boggs, Associate Professor of Sustainable and Organic Agriculture at Washington State. The study was carefully controlled to prevent spreading any harmful pathogens, a concern which led to the defeat of a similar bill sponsored by Pederson in 2017.

Carpenter-Boggs’ study concluded in August that the remains produced were safe and she plans to submit her research for publication in 2019. If the bill passes, it would take effect May 1, 2020. Until then, we can keep dreaming of “becoming trees” but Pederson’s bill could open doors to new burial alternatives and ways we can choose to have our memory honored."

Research on Children's Past Life Memories - Erlendur Haraldsson

Forum Borealis




Today we look into overwhelming scientific evidence for life after death, where Dr. Haraldsson relates studies in afterlife encounters, deathbed visions, & especially past life memories of children around the world. We examine what patterns are discovered, & discuss such questions as: What's the best verified cases? How long does reincarnation take? Do we come back in the same places & families? Do we come back in specific genders? Any memories of the time between death & rebirth? Any reports of life in other worlds? How to explain the population excess? And the professor shares his encounter with poltergeist as a young student...

Ascension Wave Backlash

May 17th 2019

As in all major shifts in consciousness and energy there often is a backlash or catch up period to adjust to the new energies. This last wave has brought quite a few bad nasties out of the woodwork. Lightworkers everywhere are being challenged on every level. The Archons are pulling out all the stops to maintain control. It is futile. We are seeing disruptive beings we have never seen before doing all they can to muddy the waters and prevent this shift from happening. Leaders who have aligned with these Archonic energies in their lust for power and wealth are falling apart. Their dark rituals are not working and the forces they call upon are being removed. This leaves them ineffective, dysfunctional and some are becoming blithering idiots exposing themselves for all to see. Never underestimate a cornered animal and they have painted themselves into a corner. The problem is the entities who have been manipulating the fallen humans are being cut loose and they are angry, running amuck. No more than ever it is imperative to maintain one’s self-authority and do clearings. This is your body, your mind, your incarnation and no one has the right to mess with it. This does not mean they won’t try. Center yourself, know what love is and what love is not. Your core essence is a loving, joyous, powerful manifesting God/Goddess. Stand in your divinity. This too shall pass. Practice loving detachment and compassion with those who have not achieved self-mastery. Here is the healing technique to clear these energies. Might have to do them often until these energies settle down.

Came upon this Clif High video rant below today ...

But let me first say ...

Unfortunately many do not understand that the Eceti ranch is a private property ...
And guest cannot visit without a requested e-mail invite ... Noting even during paid
events including this week's Eceti annual 4th July conference ...

Saying that, I will comment that my old friend James Gilliland's desire to keep peace
and harmony at his ranch during these events is totally supported from someone
like myself who has lived and work there during an extended period of time in the past.

Still i can appreciate and understand Clif's disappointment and dis-pleasure with this
news (apparently) denying his request to visit (for the first time) there during this
weeks conference . Though i do find it odd and interesting (since Clif only lives a short
3 hours drive away) why the great need and desire to go now?

Though it's no secret that Clif has publicly criticized James Gilliland and his ranch
on social media in the past, Clif also is having an ongoing online beef with James 'friend'
Jordan Sather, while also having disputes with Corey Goode's (a conference speaker this year)
claims of encounters with cosmic other worldly beings - So should there really be any
real surprise to Clif's being prohibited (by management) in his attending this weeks
events at the ranch?

Oddly though I am with you Clif on all this - I am sadly disappointed for you as well
in this development. I have not always agreed with James - politics and sometimes
even his taste judgement in personal matters - So i sympathize (with you) and wish
you and James will come to terms and (hopefully in the future) can and will make peace.

Having personally heard the testimonies of upwards of a thousand people (while living
there) I can honestly say - no one has ever told me it wasn't worth the time and trip ...
And with you only living a short ride away, I'm hoping it all will amend and follows
through in you having your own personal Eceti experience - much sooner than later.

PS - So wonderful to hear you health is on the mend !

James response ...



The Latest from ECETI and James Gilliland
ECETI.ORG (http://www.eceti.org/)

Cliff High and his followers

Due to ongoing public slander of James Gilliland, ECETI, and harassment of some of our speakers along with the open admission of how Cliff prides himself on being a provocateur, trouble maker, in addition to his constant threats inviting people to sue ECETI on the basis of slanderous assumptions, and lets not mention threats using legal codes having nothing to do with ECETI a private ranch upon which a private event is happening by invitation only we have chosen to not allow Cliff to attend the ECETI conference. He and some of his associates and followers are a security risk. Some have already crashed the gate and entered the property illegally and were immediately escorted off the property. I am sure these tresspasses would make Cliff very happy along with the doxing directly due to his acting like a victim in a matter he started and continues to perpetuate, a matter upon which we have addressed factually and professionally. His sense of entitlement, arrogance, agression and narcism have us baffled.

We have to ask the question after his slanderous remarks and harassment would you invite him to your ranch or home? Why would we expect him to behave any differently at the ranch. His agenda in coming to the ranch is obvious we are merely setting boundaries choosing not to participate or subject others to his transgressions.

His constant slander and harassment have been well documented, they have no foundation in truth or merit, again we are worried about his mental stability posing a threat to the peace and tranquility of the Sanctuary along with guests and harassment of our speakers.

This will be dealt with legally in the very near future using real codes and violations. He and his followers attempts to force their way on the property through threats and other means will be unsuccessful. There is a high level of security and any trespassers and disrupters will be escorted off the property immediately.

We have to ask ourselves are we creating heaven on Earth or are we pushing our own unhealed agendas. Quiet enjoyment of the land, freedom of speech, the right to gather and practice our spiritual beliefs as long as no harm comes to others are Constitutional and Divine Rights. We would suggest Cliff and his followers honor these rights. We are not and have not been the trespassers in this situation. We have never met Cliff, he has never been to ECETI nor has he ever attended any of the 33 years of healing sessions, ongoing workshops and classes at ECETI as tens of thousands grateful people. So upon what does he form his be lie fs and assumptions and what is motivating him? It is not the first time unconscious people, victims and seekers of fame and notoriety have tried to gain it at the expense of ECETI nor do we expect it to be the last. We would like to remind Cliff rather than boasting of being enlightened and a master all enlightened beings operate under Universal Law. Universal Peace, Brother/Sisterly Love, Individual Freedom and Prosperity for All. We might want to add service to others and impeccable integrity. His actions have fallen far short. We strongly suggest It would be wise for him to direct his energies into taking care of his own health and mental wellbeing. Again, we go back to three kinds of business. Your business, Gods business and other people’s business. Other people’s business is God’s business. He might want to talk with the tens of thousands of people who have had incredible experiences at ECETI rather than continue on his negative driven agenda.

Thanks for sharing that, Gio. I don't know about the history between Clif and ECETI but if he's been harassing them over the years, he shouldn't be surprised.

This will be dealt with legally in the very near future using real codes and violations.

"My strange views on the entire UFO phenomenon" ...



https://noriohayakawa.files.wordpress.com/2020/02/pre-select.jpg?w=600&h=400

“Human beings are under the control of a strange force that bends them in absurd ways, forcing them to play a role in a bizarre game of deception” – – Jacques Vallee

by Norio Hayakawa:

The UFO phenomenon appears to me as a paraphysical intrusion into our physical dimension by an unknown intelligence or unknown sentient entitities, paraphysically materializing themselves to a “pre-selected” observer (or a group of observers, whether small or large) and presenting to the observer as a physical extraterrestrial phenomenon and visitation for reasons yet unknown.

The “pre-selection” also seems to include a particular location as well as a particular time.

The phenomenon seems to be able to materialize and de-materialize at will and even seems to be capable of “transmogrifying” itself into any shape or form (as in the words of John A. Keel).

However, the phenomenon does not seem to be able to survive in our physical dimension except for a few seconds or a few minutes at a time.

Some researchers claim that the phenomenon seems to be able to temporarily affect our physical parameters (such as radar, etc.).

Yet the phenomenon also seems to be incapable of being photographed with clarity, if at all.

And on many occasions, it seems to me that these “UFOs” only deceptively appear (to the observer) to be utilizing some type of a propulsion system as they seem to take off into the distant sky at an unimaginable rate of speed.

Finally, by ‘phenomenon’ here, I would like to include both the ‘craft’ as well as the ‘entities’ and their seemingly paraphysical capabilities.

By the way, here is another of my favorite quotes from Dr. Jacques Vallee, the world’s top-most authority on the UFO phenomenon in my opinion:

“Contact between human percipients and the UFO phenomenon always occurs under conditions controlled by the latter. Its characteristic feature is a factor of absurdity that leads to a rejection of the story by the upper layers of the target society and an absorption at a deep unconscious level of the symbols conveyed by the encounter.”

I am the first to admit that all of the above is purely my personal speculation, but it’s the best that I could do, considering this sobering fact that:

Even though the UFO phenomenon seems to exist, it has not proven itself to be absolute, tangible evidence that we have been visited by actual physical extraterrestrial biological entities in any actual physical spacecraft of any kind. The term “UFOs” is misleading since we still do not know if they are really objects or if they are actually flying as we understand flying to be (as through the use of a propulsion system), as often mentioned by Dr. Jacques Vallee.

When The Flying Saucers Arrived (UFO Documentary)

Modern UFO culture began in the Pacific Northwest in 1947! Throughout the summer of that year, thousands of "flying saucers" were spotted all across the United States and around the world - but before this "Summer of the Saucers" truly took off - before Roswell even - three historic UFO events took place in WA and OR which set the stage for our modern conceptions of Unidentified Flying Objects.

Featuring 'The Maury Island Incident', 'The Kenneth Arnold Sighting', and 'The Portland Invasion' - and a trip to Roswell, NM...

Yes, a friend of mine from Wisconsin has also reported snow and freezing temperatures. I supposed it's "normal" there for this time of the year, but compared to European weather, it's still quite early. :hmm:

But that said, that picture cannot have been taken at 23:00, because it's still light outside. ;) (Interesting sign in the foreground there, too: "Make Orwell fiction again." :p)

This weather (amount of snow) is unusual, but a large wet front came in from the Pacific Ocean - colliding with a Arctic blast coming down from Canada, and now it's heading Eastward.

Note on the other-side west of the Cascades (Seattle), it was a rain event.

Here's a graph of the weather last evening:

At least here in Finland in the recent years we have had snow in late October, but not this year so far and I mean the most southern part where I live, northern part is a different story. Usually first snow comes normally in early November though and then melts away.

James Raffan: A Polar Bear's Journey Through the Arctic


Scientists estimate polar bears might be extinct by 2100. But how much of this is because of anthropogenic climate change? Explorer and best-selling author James Raffan discusses this and his latest book, "Ice Walker: A Polar Bear's Journey Through the Fragile Arctic." Raffan was recently named by Canadian Geographic as one of the ,90 most influential explorers in the nation's recorded history,, and has spent four decades living and working in the circumpolar world of Canada's far north.

Over forty years ago, I worked on Andros Island, Bahamas (AUTEC Base (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Undersea_Test_and_Evaluation_Center))... It was where i witnessed two USO's (Unidentified Submerged Objects) ... Though the ones i saw, emerged from the deep to quietly fly away and vanish into thin air (as if into another dimension).

Over the years i have reaffirmed this experience with another who was with me during one of the sightings - just to make sure i didn't imagine the incident.

COAST TO COAST AM – August 2021. In the course of his research, military fiction writer Mack Maloney discovered numerous places all over the world similar to Area 51. The US Navy has a super-secret base in the Bahamas called AUTEC, where they test nuclear submarines. However, Maloney revealed this base, in the heart of the Bermuda Triangle, has been a locus for both UFO and USO sightings-- in some of the underwater incidents, the unidentified craft were said to be moving at very high speeds. The mysterious M-Triangle in Russia is an isolated forested area, where for some time, only the Soviet military was allowed to enter. According to documentation he uncovered, it was routine to see UFOs and balls of light in the sky.

The next affordable city is already too expensive

Conor Dougherty, New York Times

Feb. 20, 2022

SPOKANE, Wash. — Maybe it was the date night when he and his wife spent two hours driving 19 miles to dinner, or the homeless encampment down the street, or the fact that homes were so expensive that his children could never afford to live near him.

Whatever the reasons, and there were many, Steve MacDonald decided he was done with Los Angeles. He wanted a city that was smaller and cheaper, big enough that he could find a decent restaurant but not so much that its problems felt unsolvable and every little task like an odyssey. After the pandemic hit and he and his wife went through a grand reprioritizing, they centered on Spokane, where their son went to college. They had always liked visiting and decided it would be a nice place to move.

Eastern Washington was of course much colder. Until this winter, MacDonald, a native Southern Californian, had never shoveled snow. But their new house is twice as big as their Los Angeles home, cost less than half as much and is a five-minute commute from City Hall, where MacDonald works as Spokane’s director of community and economic development.

He arrives each day to tackle a familiar conundrum: how to prevent Spokane from developing the same kinds of problems that people like him are moving there to escape.

“I’m realizing more and more how important the future prosperity of this city is about getting housing right,” he said. “If we don’t, it’s going to track more closely with what happened in Los Angeles.”

https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/24/20/50/22088242/3/2000x0.jpg
A homeless camp in Spokane, Wash., where the mayor declared a housing emergency in 2021, Jan. 26, 2022. An influx of new residents fleeing more expensive cities pushed up home prices 60% in Spokane in the past two years.

MacDonald knows the pattern, and so does everyone else who has been following the U.S. housing market. The story plays out locally but is national in scope. It is the story of people leaving high-cost cities because they’ve been priced out or become fed up with how impossible the housing problem seems. Then it becomes the story of a city trying to tame prices by building more housing, followed by the story of neighbors fighting to prevent it, followed by the story of less expensive cities being deluged with buyers from more expensive cities, followed by the less expensive cities descending into the same problems and struggling with the same solutions.

It’s easier to change where we live than it is to change how we live.

Whether it’s Boise, Idaho, or Reno, Nevada, or Portland, Oregon, or Austin, Texas, the American housing market is caught in a vicious cycle of broken expectations that operates like a food chain: The sharks flee New York and Los Angeles and gobble up the housing in Austin and Portland, whose priced-out homebuyers swim to the cheaper feeding grounds of places like Spokane. The cycle brings bitterness and “Don’t Move Here” bumper stickers — and in Spokane it has been supercharged during the pandemic and companies’ shift to remote work.

No matter how many times it happens, no matter how many cities and states try to blunt it with recommendations to build more housing and provide subsidies for those who can’t afford the new stuff, no matter how many zoning battles are fought or homeless camps lamented, no next city, as of yet, seems better prepared than the last one was.

An old steam plant that has been turned into a restaurant in Spokane, Wash., Jan. 27, 2022. An influx of new residents fleeing more expensive cities pushed up home prices 60% in Spokane in the past two years.

Just a few years ago, a Spokane household that made the median income could afford about two-thirds of the homes on the market, according to Zillow. Now home prices are up 60% over the past two years, pricing out broad swaths of the populace and fomenting an escalating housing crisis marked by resentment, zoning fights and tents.

Being an “it” place was something Spokane’s leaders had long hoped for. The city and its metropolitan region have spent decades trying to convince out-of-town professionals and businesses that it would be a great place to move. Now their wish has been granted, and the city is grappling with the consequences.

Growth is never perfect, and Spokane’s influx has been accompanied by a booming employment market that has increased wages, turned abandoned warehouses into offices and helped the city recover jobs lost during the pandemic. This is normally called progress. But for people who already lived in and around Spokane or the suburbs just across the border in north Idaho, the shift from living in a place that was broadly affordable to broadly not has come on with the suddenness of a car crash. Now many workers are wondering what the point of growth is if it only makes it harder to keep a roof over their head.

https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/24/20/50/22088240/3/2000x0.jpg
Nadine Woodward, the mayor of Spokane, Wash., who said the city might be too expensive for her own son and his wife, Jan. 27, 2022. An influx of new residents fleeing more expensive cities pushed up home prices 60% in Spokane in the past two years.

Even the mayor isn’t immune. In an interview, Nadine Woodward, a Republican who was elected in 2019, noted that her son and daughter-in-law, newlyweds who moved home during the pandemic, were living with her and her husband while they figured out where they could afford to settle. They came back to Spokane from Seattle, where they were long ago priced out. Austin was the next city on their list, but then its home prices shot up to about where Seattle’s were when they left. At this point, even Spokane is seeming pricey.

“I never thought I’d see the day where my adult children couldn’t afford a home in Spokane,” Woodward said.

A Between Place

Standing by a snow-covered lawn on an overcast afternoon, Steve Silbar, a local real estate agent who has been selling homes for five years, explained Spokane’s transformation in terms of a 6-inch screen. When he thinks of a typical buyer, Silbar said, he imagines a couple thousands of miles away, perhaps on a beach, looking at their phones. They’re considering moving to a cheaper city, and do a search for homes.

Clients like this are why Silbar invested $3,000 in a camera that allows him to create three-dimensional tours of his listings, and why the exterior of every home he sells is showcased with an aerial video shot by a drone. In a market that attracts so many outsiders, a virtual walk through the interior and bird’s-eye flight over the street can be the nudge buyers need to bid on a home they’ve never entered, in a city they’ve never seen.

“I have to assume that the person that is looking at my listing has never been to Spokane, does not know about Spokane, has no clue,” Silbar said.

Spokane is the largest city on the road from Seattle to Minneapolis. This fact is frequently cited as the logic behind its economy: It’s between things. The city was incorporated in 1881 and grew into a transportation hub for the surrounding mining and logging industries. It remains a hub, only instead of shipping out timber and silver, businesses revolve around Fairchild Air Force Base and a collection of hospitals and universities that draw from the rural towns that stretch from eastern Washington to northern Idaho and into western Montana.

https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/24/20/50/22088243/3/2000x0.jpg
Lindsey Simler, a nurse who grew up in Spokane, Wash., wants to buy a home in the $300,000 range, but put her search on pause after a dozen failed offers, Jan. 29, 2022. An influx of new residents fleeing more expensive cities pushed up home prices 60% in Spokane in the past two years.

The transition from past to present plays out across a skyline in which the usual collection of anonymous bank and hotel towers is broken up by historic brick buildings that seem to be either in a state of abandonment or rehabilitation or occupied by low-rent tenants while waiting for redevelopment. The current boom has already made its mark in the form of new apartment towers, warehouses-turned-office buildings and an empty lot that will soon contain a 22-story building that will be the city’s tallest.

Driving around town, Michael Sharapata, a commercial real estate broker who moved to Spokane from the Bay Area in 2017, gave a staccato accounting of new leases, such as the millions of square feet that Amazon occupies out by the airport, or the satellite offices rented by various regional accounting and building firms.

His family is coming, too. After Sharapata and his wife moved north, they were followed, in rapid succession, by his brother-in-law in Austin, another brother-in-law in the Bay Area and his sister-in-law in Salt Lake City.

“We were looking for an affordable community that had an opportunity to accommodate all of us,” he said.

As in most of urban America, much of the growth in the Spokane area is on the fringes, where heavy equipment and the skeletal outlines of new subdivisions unfold in every direction and into Idaho. Building permits have surged, and the cadre of mostly local builders who had the market more or less to themselves now grumble that the rapid growth has attracted big national builders like D.R. Horton and Toll Brothers.

All of this happened fairly recently. In the years after the Great Recession, when homebuilders were in bankruptcy or hibernation, migration to the Spokane area plunged. That pattern shifted in 2014 when, as if a switch had been flipped, waves of migrants started arriving as already high-cost cities like Seattle and San Francisco saw their housing markets go into a tech-fueled frenzy.

By the end of 2014, migration to the Spokane area had jumped to more than 2,000 net new residents, compared with a net loss the year before, according to Equifax and Moody’s Analytics. Annual growth has only continued, rising further with the pandemic to more than 4,500 net new residents.

Sometimes they come for the chance to buy their first home. Other times it’s a bigger house or some land. Joel Sweeney, an academic adviser at Eastern Washington University, wanted the best of both: a single-family house on a quiet street that was close enough to downtown that he could walk to a good brewery. That sort of Goldilocks urbanity could cost $1 million in Austin, where he and his wife lived until last year. When they moved to Spokane they paid less than a third of that.

“You could not get a house for $299,000 in Austin where you could walk to a bunch of different stuff,” he said.

The white house with the red door sits on a quiet block near Gonzaga University. It has two bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,500 square feet of living space.

Silbar, the real estate agent, has sold it twice in the past three years. The first time, in November 2019, he represented a buyer who offered $168,000 and got it with zero drama. This year it went back on the market, and Silbar listed it for $250,000. Fourteen offers and a bidding war later, it closed at $300,000.

When Silbar got into the business, he said, his clients were “nurses and teachers,” and now they’re corporate managers, engineers and other professionals. “What you can afford in Spokane has completely changed,” he said.

The typical home in the Spokane area is worth $411,000, according to Zillow. That’s still vastly less expensive than markets like the San Francisco Bay Area ($1.4 million), Los Angeles ($878,000), Seattle ($734,000) and Portland ($550,000). But it’s dizzying (and enraging) to long-term residents.

Five years ago, a little over half the homes in the Spokane area sold for less than $200,000, and about 70% of its employed population could afford to buy a home, according to a recent report commissioned by the Spokane Association of Realtors. Now fewer than 5% of homes — a few dozen a month — sell for less than $200,000, and less than 15% of the area’s employed population can afford a home. A recent survey by Redfin, the real estate brokerage, showed that homebuyers moving to Spokane in 2021 had a budget 23% higher than what locals had.

One of Silbar’s clients, Lindsey Simler, a 38-year-old nurse who grew up in Spokane, wants to buy a home in the $300,000 range but keeps losing out because she doesn’t have enough cash to compete. Spokane isn’t so competitive that it’s awash in all-cash offers, as some higher-priced markets are. But prices have shot up so fast that many homes are appraising for less than their sale price, forcing buyers to put up higher down payments to cover the difference.

A dozen failed offers later, Simler has decided to sit out the market for a while because the constant losing is so demoralizing. If prices don’t calm down, she said, she’s thinking about becoming a travel nurse. With the health care workforce so depleted by COVID-19, travel nursing pays much better and, hopefully, will allow her to save more for a down payment.

“I’m not at the point where I want to give up on living in Spokane, because I have family here and it feels like home,” she said. “But travel nursing is going to be my next step if I haven’t been able to land a house.”

From her seventh-floor office atop the art deco City Hall, Woodward, the mayor, looked out at the Spokane River, where in the warmer months a gondola glides past her window to the Riverfront Park built for the World’s Fair. Spokane hosted the fair in 1974 as a means of revitalizing its blighted downtown, and during the recent interview Woodward pointed out the window at cranes and construction sites that she calls “positive activity.”

Spokane’s job market is among the strongest in the nation, and the virtuous economic cycle — of people coming for housing, causing businesses to come for people, causing more people to come for jobs — is in full swing. And yet, as in Seattle and California before and increasingly across the nation, the scourge of rising prices, particularly for rent and housing, makes it feel less virtuous than advertised.

The recent Realtors report warned of “significant social implications” if the city doesn’t tackle housing. The issues included young families not being able to buy or taking on excessive debt, small businesses not being able to hire, and difficulty keeping young college graduates in town.

In the dominoes of the housing market, the disappointments of aspiring buyers like Simler get magnified as they move down to lower-income households. With homes so hard to buy, rents have shot up, and the vacancy rate for apartments is close to zero.

All of this has compounded at the lowest end of the market, where the nonprofit Volunteers of America’s Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho affiliate, which runs three shelters and maintains 240 apartments for people who were formerly homeless, said it will lose a quarter of its units in the next fiscal year as more of its funding goes to higher rents.

In December, as temperatures dropped and shelters filled, advocates and members of the homeless population protested by setting up several dozen tents on the City Hall steps. The encampment was gone two weeks later but has since been reconstructed on a patch of grass on the other side of town. In the winter cold it smells like ash and soot from the open fires burning to keep people warm.

Last year, Woodward declared a housing emergency, and her administration has put in place initiatives that mirror those of housing-troubled cities on the West Coast. The city has built new shelters, is encouraging developers to repurpose commercial buildings into apartments, is making it easier for residents to build backyard units, and is rezoning the city to allow duplexes and other multiunit buildings in single-family neighborhoods.

Woodward pointed to Kendall Yards, one of the developments outside her City Hall window, as an example of what she wanted to see more of. The mixed-density project could be a postcard picture of what economists and planners say is needed to combat the nation’s housing shortage and sprawl.

In defiance of the single-family zoning laws that dictate the look of most U.S. neighborhoods, Kendall Yards has houses next to town homes next to apartments, with retail and office mixed in.

People in town seem to love it, but are leery of there being more places like it, especially in their neighborhood.

“I think it’s awesome — I have friends there, and we go down there to the farmers market and walk around,” said John Schram, a co-chair of the neighborhood council in Spokane’s Comstock neighborhood. “That’s just not my vision of what I want for me. My concern is that I move into a neighborhood because of the way that it was designed when I got there, and when somebody else comes in and wants to change that I’m going to be concerned.”

He added: “I have nothing against duplexes and triplexes, just not next to my house.”

Leading up to 3-18-17 A series of heavy rainstorms blew through and temperatures soared after very unusual amounts of snowfall leading to flood stage water levels. This made for some incredible drone footage of the rapids at RIver Front Park in Spokane WA.

A water drenched Beautiful Dragonfly

Dragonflies are ancient insects. They have existed on Planet Earth for approximately 300 million years. Today, they look very much like they did in "dinosaur times," though they have gradually gotten smaller since then. Dragonflies can be useful in controlling mosquito populations. Mosquitoes are one of their primary food sources! As far as insects go, dragonflies are among the fastest. Some of the faster species can fly upward of 30 miles per hour. Their four wings also allow them to move sideways, backward, to hover in place, etc. And they can do all of these movements quickly and accurately, which makes them well suited to eat other insects right out of the air.

Dragonflies are not born with wings. They are born in a larvae state and eventually go through a partial metamorphosis process, during which they grow their wings. They spend most of their lives in the larva stage (up to three years, depending on the species). The adult, winged stage only lasts a few weeks. Mating is the primary reason for their winged stage. So when you see a winged dragonfly, you know it's toward the end of its lifespan. Sad but true.

Most dragonflies can be found around lakes or rivers. They breathe water through gills in their abdomen, and can squirt this water out fast to give themselves a quick jet-propelled movement. Dragonflies hatch from eggs in freshwater, and spent at least a few months (sometimes several years) as aquatic predators. As they grow they molt (shed their whole skin at once) many times. Once they are big enough, they crawl out of the water and the adult stage emerges from the skin of the nymph. Once they have transformed into the winged adult stage, the stop growing.

Most dragonfly species spend the winter as nymphs in the water, but some migrate south, and spend the winter as adults. In few species that lay their eggs in the late summer or fall, the eggs don't hatch until spring. Dragonflies emerge from the water in the warm months of spring or summer.During its two year incubation cycle in the water the dragonfly sheds up to fifteen skins. The dragonfly also holds the qualities of the water, contributing to its grace. Water holds deep seated thoughts, emotions, and the yin quality of introspect.

Since the dragonfly life cycle encompasses both the waters and the sky this creature is tied to our own transformational abilities. The key is to remember that any transformation, to be complete, takes time.

The wings of the dragon fly are transparent, abounding with many luminous colors. The eyes are multi- faceted, able to see from many angles. This reminds us that we can see anything in life from many angles. We should always look past the illusions. The dragonfly can be utilized as a symbol for understanding an aspect of our evolutionary process in life. Taken as a whole our life is very transformational, seen or unseen. We can learn patience and faith that the steps we take will lead us in the right direction.

You can use the qualities of the dragonfly totem in your daily meditation. With the dragonfly we have that transformational quality, and we can transform thoughts and perceptions into understanding and growth. We can look beyond the illusions and stories for the greater world of clarity and connectivity with self. Stories of totem animals is an simple way to learn more about our own deep seated abilities. Learning about our own totems is a step into self discovery, and can bring clarity to our own vision and understanding. Learn more about totem spirits, and the collective qualities that empower and embrace our creativity in life.

A Belated Earth Day ...

'God Has A Voice She Speaks Through Me'

♪ How my tears made love to you
Watching dolphins in the sea
The earth is a pretty place to be
How my tears made love to thee

Black bodies float in the sea
We can see
But we can't see me
A starless shroud like the dark to you
Laughter echoes in my private room

Kissing fireflies on the beach
How sweet that we can be
Everyone has love to give
Hearts will teach us how to live
My body wept
My fear so free
The water softly tickles me
My heart is pounding, waiting for
The ocean-deep love to lift my veil

Crystal light shines through mine eyes
God has a voice, she speaks through me
Every creature longs to be
In his arms, please carry me

I am happy in the light of day
My skin glows bright in the sun rays
My shadowed world seems so far away

My angel told me not to fear
Love is free and everywhere
Listen to that special part
It will save us, it's the heart

God has a voice, he speaks through me
God has a voice, she speaks through me

Crystal light in every creature
Crystal light in every creature
Everyone has love to give ♪
